Okay, so the subject matter doesn't reflect the post, but you'll thank me for checking this out later.
"Are we so lost we have to be sold our own democratic right!?"
So yeah, politics and fantasy baseball rarely share the same dance steps, but this shit is so awesome and so hilarious that I just had to post it today. Not to worry, he doesn't take a partisan stance here, he just assails the American electoral system and the people who report on it and run for office. Absolutely brilliant stuff.

(I'm not sure how to embed a video on this forum, so I just attached the link... regular html codes don't work as embeds for some reason)

For those of you unfamiliar with Craig Ferguson, he's the guy that comes on after the Letterman show on CBS. He's a recently sworn in American Citizen, and this is his first Presidential Election. Anyway, I'm probably preaching to the choir here, because you guys all sound like well rounded citizens and pay attention to this stuff on a regular basis, but it's worth watching anyway. If you watch one video on YouTube today, watch this one.

Also, please don't let this thread turn into a partisan discussion about politics. I'd rather keep this about citizen participation instead. I have my political leanings in one direction, but I'd rather not know yours so that I'll still like and respect you in the morning.

Great clip. When Craig Ferguson is "on", he can be pretty fantastic. He was very good, speaking to some of these same issues, when he was on Bill Maher the other week.

Nicely put. Even though you're even less likely to respect me if you found out that I kept Fausto Carmona in one league - and still own him. Oops, did I just say that?

Great video. Thanks for sharing.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
