Was perusing the "new features for 2007" thingie on the website, this one should make everyone happy:

Transactions after Thursday games - With the NFL adding more and more Thursday games, we understand the impact this has on your fantasy experience. Now, you can add/drop and trade players up until game time on Sundays even if there has been a game on Thursday or Saturday...of course those players who participated in games earlier in the week will be excluded.

Boo. Rosters should be locked for the whole weekend after the start of the first game.

I watched Aliens, and I didn't even get a lousy t-shirt.

I don't care, as long as players are locked once their team plays even if they were out for the game.

Quick scoring offenses coupled with a defense that has trouble against the run won't turn into a lot of victories, actually.

It can!

So if someone got hurt in a Friday practice for a Sunday game, you don't mind being locked from changing him out? Really?

I don't care, as long as players are locked once their team plays even if they were out for the game.

Yep, that's still the case.

Trunks-

That's how most of the other leagues I've seen ran it. I personally really don't care, but I think it's a better way to do it because it forces players to be active in running their teams. That way, m0nty doesn't gay up the system by reminding people to check on their specific players because the game is starting in 5 minutes when they've been inactive all week.

I think the reason most other leagues ran it that way was because the site their hosted on didn't modify their website software to handle that situation...regular Thursday games are just recently becoming a "standard" thing later in the season after all. I would expect similar changes at other websites. We still have the option for locking rosters completely after the first game of the week has started if people bitch enough about it.

I guess it's okay to make fun of it since he's alright.

I think my favorite part is the height meter behind him that shows just how far his flailing body made it off the ramp before plummeting.

So was I.  However, the best part was after he hit the ground and the main announcer freaked out, someone (the guy on Sportscenter said it was Tony Hawk) said "I can't believe he landed a 720".

I have jumped from twelve feet and landed on my feet in grass, I've jumped from 50 feet and landed on my feet in water.

I don't care to do anything like that ever, ever, again.

So it's very easy for me to cringe whenever someone's in a fall like that, anon. I don't expect them to die, but wouldn't be surprised at a broken bone or two.

Come on, you know I wasn't serious. Even though he walked away from it, his body will have a very lasting memory of that impact, I'm sure.

Can we at least say that he left a strong impression? I'm not sure, the video was a little blurry.

What I love about the video is that at the apex of his ascent, everyone in that arena, including him, knew what was going to happen and was waiting for the impact. To quote Oscar Wilde/Willy Wonka: "The suspense is terrible... I hope it'll last."

When I was a kid there was this contraption someone had built over the river, with several floors. The highest one was just under / around five stories up.

The kind of silly thing you do once, just for the hell of it, so that you can go, years later, "Yeah, I did that."

Although these days you could just be like everyone else on the internet and make shit up, but that's not nearly as fun.

Crosswise. Broke the three biggest metatarsals in half when I landed in a muddy patch of grass and my foot slipped backwards.

Did they cut Simon this year or is he injured again? And with Booger down, that's pretty much nothing on the front line...sadly enough.
