Here at Dynasty League Football, our motto is, “There is No Off-Season.” Sure, that’s a cute saying and all, but in reality, the off-season is a season of alternating seasons and off-seasons. When I took that to the DLF brass and pitched a new slogan of, “There is a Short Off-Season Followed by the Combine and Free Agency Then another Brief Off-Season Interrupted by the NFL Draft and Dynasty Rookie Drafts Which Give Way to a Third and Final, Longer Off-Season” I was told it was, “Too verbose.” I guess catchy is more important than accurate.
As you may have figured out, we are right at the beginning stages of off-season number two. It is also our first real taste of off-season angst, with most of us counting down the days to the aforementioned draft. Because fantasy folk are half a chromosome away from throwing our poop at each other while peeling bananas with our feet, we handle our impatience in the most annoying way possible: by arguing on Twitter. A lot.
One of the most common arguments you are about to get beaten over the head by is which matters more, talent or situation? It is a nuanced issue that could not be worse-suited for the arena in which it is most often fought. Hopefully by bringing it here, you can avoid the hot takes and spend some time outside. Seriously, those bed sores aren’t going away if you don’t get off your office chair.
