My brother out bid me and got him.  That effer.  I'm learning.  Next time there is a player I really want I will bid more.  I bid 51 of 150 points I had to spend.  He bid 100.

I reread this again, are you betting on a players average?

It's kind of gambling, but it's really just a game.  I don't really consider it gambling per se.  There are money prizes and everybody kicks in $120 if they want to be in the league and that is all paid out at the end of the season.  It's kind of like how a bowling league has prize money at the end of they year.

So before the NFL season begins, you have a draft, just like the NFL has every year, except in a fantasy league you are drafting players from different teams.  Each week you can start 1 Quarterback, 2 running backs, 2 receivers 1 tight end, and a flex player (can be a running back, a tight end, or a receiver), 1 kicker, and 1 teams defense.  And depending on how eqchnof those players that you have picked perform (how many TDS they score ... how many catches they make ... how many yards they get ... for a team defense how many sacks they get and interceptions thy get) in the games they play, they will each get you so many points.  You add up all the points your played get eqch weeo of the regular NFL season and that's your teams total.  I did bad last week and only got I think 98 points. 

Each week your team will go against another person's team in the league.  So I only got 98 points last week, but the guy I played got 142.  So he beat me.  After one week in the season I am 0-1 and the guy I played against last week
Is 1-0, cause he beat me.  This week I go up against a different person.

So you have your 1 QB, your 2 running backs, 2 receivers, tight end, flex player, kicker and defense you start every week, but you also have players on your bench that you drafted.  So you might have two good QBs on your team and you have to decide which one will start for you each week, because you can only start 1 QB.

During the season you can also release players on your team and replace them with players nobody drafted.  So right now I can drop any player on my team and replace him with any player that is not on another person's team in my league.  I couldn't do that this week though until Thursday. Before Thursday if I wanted to add a player to my team you have to go through waivers.

During that period you have to bid anonymously on the player you want and whoever bids the most for that player will get him. Each person with a team gets 150 points for bidding on such players for the entire year. So I wanted Marquis Brown from the raiders cause he's a rookie receiver that nobody drafted, cause he's a rookie receiver and rookie receivers almost always take a year or two to become good in the league.  Well this guy had 2 TDS for the Baltimore ravens and a whole bunch of yards.  So there is a good chance he's gonna be a really good receiver because that's very unusual for a rookie receiver to put up those numbers in his first game ever in the NFL. 

So I bid 51 of my waiver points for him, which is a lot, but I lost and didn't get him, cause my brother out bid me.

This is all new to me.  I've never been in a league before.  My brother had been in fantasy leagues for years and years and won all 4 leagues he was in last year.  So I'm kind of at a disadvantage cause this is my first year and I am still learning the ropes.

I was predicted at the beginning of the season to have the best team along with my dada team (we were tied for best in the prediction), but I don't think I'm gonna win the league or do very well this year.  We'll see though.

Marquis Brown from the Baltimore Ravens, not the raiders.

A rookie running back can come in the league and immediately tear it up if he's good.  Rookie receivers almost never do great from day 1.  Even the best of all time.

I would watch the documentary.  So you can see both sides.  I can totally see how being in that situation would lead those kids to say nothing was going on only to realize as adults what really happened to them.  He also replaced them as they aged out with kids always about the same age.  It's a hallmark of predators like that.

There isn't much of a doubt in my mind.  Even some inconsistencies aren't gonna erase the totality of the circumstances.
My grandson watched it and said it was disturbing and he believes the boys.
I also think MJ did itand the parents knew about it.
