“It happens.”, at least that is what Forest Gump quipped in the edited for TV version of the movie. And he’s right; it does happen; at least to me.
You draft a great team and start the season strong, rolling up points and victories, knowing that the Championship will soon be yours. Then, unexpectedly, at least to you, “it” happens….INJURIES.
You’re on the couch on a Sunday afternoon, checking the stats and you see one of your players is stuck at the same yardage. Hmmm; maybe the computer hasn’t refreshed itself, you think. After refreshing the computer, your player’s stats still haven’t changed and the panic sets in. Is he hurt? Is it a concussion? Is it an ACL? Is he done? Is my team finished? Scrambling, you surf the net for any player updates. Then you switch to FOX or CBS to find info and then you see it; a horrific replay of your WR’s ankle being broken in four places…so much for the championship! You then tell yourself, “I should have never drafted him, I knew he was going to get hurt!”
