Fred Smoot (DB) of the Washington Redskins pulled off the upset and beat his commissioner, Chris Cooley, to win the first annual Washington Redskin’s Fantasy Football League. As a result, Smoot will take home the coveted “Throwback” trophy and will have bragging rights for the year. Apparently Cooley was so confident he would beat Smoot’s “DC Lumber” team that he filled out Smoot’s lineup for him prior to their matchup. “Cooley’s Zornado” lost by 3 points and like so many other fantasy owners will have to wait until next year wondering what could’ve been.
I’d like to thank Chris Cooley and the rest of the Redskins once again for playing for one of our “Throwback” trophies. To see Fred Smoot hoist the trophy over his head was exactly the reaction we’ve come to expect and I must say- never gets old. -DM
Many guys will be heard uttering those words right about now after they realize their dream of a title will have to wait until next year. Myself included. However, my buddies Bill and Dan, co-owners of “Everyone Loves Bush,” are justified in their anger after Visanthe Shiancoe (TE, Vikings) burned ’em for 136 yds and 2 tds in the title game of my league. It’s understandable. Especially because on his first TD he was actually down on the one yard line and Atlanta didn’t challenge. The fact they also had Peterson only added salt to the wound. Doesn’t Mike Smith know that it was the Super Bowl for millions of leagues out there? C’mon,throw the red flag! Congratulations to “Cool Brees” and my friend Bill, who captures his second title in the 18 year history of our league. My dream of a repeat was not to be and I’ll be passing the trophy his way come Sept. -DM
I would like to thank Chris Cooley, TE of the Washington Redskins, who recently decided to have the “Throwback” represent the Redskin’s Fantasy Football League. Cooley is the league’s commissioner and wanted to add some more excitement to the Redskin’s league. Many of the players can be seen on a video, unfamiliar with the basic rules of fantasy- including Santana Moss and Jason Campbell. I must say it was pretty funny to see.
However, Cooley was not very impressed with his teammates and thought a trophy would help. Well, we’re confident Chris should have no more concerns now that the Redskins will be playing for the “Throwback.” -DM
