FantasyVille, Episode 1.9

Welcome back to FantasyVille! Unpack your bags, stay awhile and talk some fantasy football with your hosts Colin Daniels and John Reidy.

The fellas explain the layoff, talk controversial trades and whiny players who can't fathom the rules that are accessible and easy to read.

Then there's a nice chunk dedicated to Daily Fantasy and a long time denier of "Daily is Gambling" finally gives up the onion skin charade.

We talk about this week's games including the awesome slate of Thanksgiving matchups. And with that, enjoy the show and Happy Thanksgiving.

Media

What have we learned since starting our first ever $10K season-long NFL wager-off?? It's hard, that's what. We're not even paying a "vig" and most of our wagerers have struggled to stay above water. Still we did have one winner this week!

We spend a nice quiet night with the Honey Bear aka Zach Fogg (@zachfoggsports) of 104.3 The Fan and that quiet evening quickly turns into a shouting match about the Broncos.

But first Colin goes off on his detractors and people who don't get his "humor."

Then we spend a good portion dissecting the Broncos woes before going a little deeper than your average local show on the AVs. It's compelling, we promise.

Then we wrap it up with a "Did they tweet it" and some other non sequiturs befitting a good clean (not language wise) show of this caliber.

It's high time the Broncos unleash the Latimer

Written by Tuesday, 18 November 2014 16:52

 

"This Denver Broncos team is still very much capable of winning the Super Bowl, but there are some

tough realizations that have to take place for that dream to become a reality."

Whoa Nelly! Week eleven in our season-long $10K NFL wager-off was the toughest one yet for a couple of our five wagerers. While none of our players has had an exceptionally good year, all remain in the game as we head toward the stretch run of the NFL regular season.

"Better now than later, I say. Better for the fans. Better for the team. Not only do the Broncos now have a better perspective on how they might be beaten when the chips are down, Broncos Country now knows to adjust expectations."

Are the Nuggets already shopping Javale McGee?

Written by Friday, 14 November 2014 17:12

"In a league where a third string center can get $5 million a year just for suiting up, $11 million a season for a 26-year old who averaged 11 points and eight rebounds the last two years he was getting starter minutes really is not a big deal."

"That’s pretty lame, and unprofessional as those are, my two favorite moments from Soicher came in 2012 when he asked the newly-acquired Peyton Manning to sign his bobblehead on-air and this July when he spewed out a tasteless joke about Pat Bowlen and Alzheimer’s. Great moments to remember for 9 News I’m sure."

"If the Nuggets are tanking it would be nice for the fans to be informed. If they aren't tanking they're just a goddamn disaster."

A great honor to have both the Denver Post's Benjamin Hochman, and Grantland's Jonah Keri on the show tonight.

We cover a lot of ground and immediately hit on the Rockies since we have some baseball experts in the house. We serenade Jonah, then we  talk about local sports radio and blowhards.

This pod goes all over the place, Too Many Cooks, John pussyfoots around Jonah's interactions with Ringolsby, but Jonah sets the record straight. And then some good Ringolsby/selfie info is released. Hochman the nickname creator is discussed, #WINS is explained, an epic TV quiz and a whole lot of interesting stuff is yapped about in under 2 hours. Dig it. Such a treat, you guys. We hope you enjoy it.

Our season-long NFL wager-off continues and our bettors continue to take a beating. Each began with an imaginary $10K bankroll to take on the year with. While success has been fleeting we did see two of our wagerers save their hydes this week. One of them scored the biggest win of the season so far.

"As much as we all want to believe that Osweiler is learning under Manning and that he will, at some point, be unleashed as the heir apparent to 18’s throne, the odds are really far better that Brock moves on to start somewhere else."
