I saw remnants of Wave 9 today (no Ponda, Hoth Trooper, or Bastilla) though did I pick up my first Rebel Fleet Trooper. :) That was the first new stuff I have personally seen since bit of Wave 6.

This isn't normally my style but here goes a little completely shameless self promotion...

I'm a first year film student at the Colorado Film School here in Denver. After a few years of putting film school off I decided this fall to go back to school to pursue my dreams of becoming a filmmaker. I've made three short films so far this semester and have another couple to finish. It is all pretty rudimentary stuff so far, but I am really enjoying it and the learning process that goes along with it. Check out my YouTube channel:

Big Damn Hero Productions

I'd love to hear what you guys and gals think. :)

Wait what was your website again? Maybe you could plug it a few more times. The two posts in the last hour and the link in your signature weren't enough for me to remember it.

I think what actually happened was that I had an open roster spot (that hadn't been filled from dropping Kenny Britt) when I had accepted the trade, but before the time it was processed a waiver claim that I had put in earlier in the week went through and my roster was filled.

With the first pick in the 2012, the Minnesota Vikings select...

That would be a dream come true for MN.  But you know where Luck's really going to end up...

The Vikings and the Dolphins both have to find a way to lose the Broncos first. I'm already at the point where I'd like to see the Broncos go 1-15, and come up with the first round pick. I'm so sick of all the Orton vs Tebow crap around here. Niether of them are going to be winning NFL QB's with the Broncos. Josh McDaniels really made some BAD choices in the two drafts he was responsible for here in Denver. I could deal with another year of Suck if it means we get some Luck. (Look at that lame rhyme...)

Where's that picture of Picard doing the facepalm when you need it?

Marin or Patrick could trade me Lance Moore or Thomas for Chris Johnson... :-X

It suck losing Kenny Britt for the season when I have such a low waiver wire priority this week...  :'(

I miss the Great Purple Pimp Daddy. To think I had him and never got to take him on an adventure... :(

I'm a bit late to the party here and don't mean to kick the dying horse while it's down... but I'm with Rob and Dressel on this one. The fact that THOSE two, of all the people in the history of this league, are in such agreement on this issue should really say something about the whole situation. You are off your marbles on this one Justin. Why is it that you have been at the center of almost every controversy we have had in this league since you have joined? We haven't even played through three weeks of the season and already we have had a problem every week.  ::)

I hardly seen this as an unfair or one-sided trade. The trade was a 6th rounder for an 8th rounder. Moore has had some decent production in the two years he has played, as Dressel posted: 1700 yards and 18 TD's combined. Those aren't shabby numbers at all. The guy he is being traded for is a rookie who did manage a 100 yard game, with a fumble. Beyond that though who knows? He was a second rounder this year for the Dolphins, so it isn't like he is a really highly touted 1st round back. He could have a great year, he could also have just an average rookie year, no one really knows because he is an unproven rookie. Just because he is a starter and was a high draft pick, doesn't make this a lopsided trade. Two years ago the Broncos took Knowshon Moreno in the 1st round and he was supposed to be our new franchise RB, and up until this point in his career he has been nicked named "No-Gain" Moreno around here by sportswriters. He has managed only or or two 100 yard games and hasn't hit 1000 yds in a season yet either. My point is he hasn't yet lived up to his draft position yet, and who knows if he will? The same thing could happen with Thomas, you just don't know. Lance Moore plays for a great Saints offense with one of the NFL's top QBs in Drew Brees throwing him the ball, that immediately helps his chances in my book. Add in some injuries to the Saints WRs and he gets more playing time too. I really don't understand where any of your whining on this comes from.

I'm not involved in the trade at all either and I hardly find it unfair. If you had proposed this trade to whomever else voted against it I'd be saying the exact same thing... I'm curious to know who else voted against this... and why they don't do such a thing?

Congrats Greg! What a great giveaway!

I'm ok with fewer defensemen as well.

I don't know what is with me and the TE position in fantasy fro the past few seasons. I seem to lose that position matchup almost every single week. It is easily the least productive spot on my roster. Today for example I decided to leave Owen Daniels in the game, after having Keller in my starting line-up for about 10 minutes last night. What does Keller do? He only has a 100+ receiving yard day with TD... Granted Daniels has yet to play, but with my luck I highly doubt that he will surpass that. ::)

Why did I waste a pickup on Chad Henne? I just noticed today someone who I would have thought for sure would be on someone's team was actually available and there is no way he will be after today... :-X

Speaking of deaths: Pavol Demitra, Ruslan Salei, Josef Vasicek, Maxim Shuvalov, Jan Marek, Karlis Skrastinsh... all killed in a Russian plane crash today. These are the few I heard about. Might be more. RIP guys.

My condolences to the families of all affected. We had the pleasure of seeing Skrasish and Salei play here in CO. I always liked the two of them. Maybe we can get to the start of the regular season without anyone else dying?  :-\
