I don't believe I have the time/energy to compete in the highest level of the Octagon in a manner that would be respectful to the managers who fought their way into the 2010-2011 Octagon Champions League. I do love this league and what we've collectively created here so if Justin and a consensus of other managers would allow me to (i) move into one of the First Division leagues (preferably roto) and (ii) invite one of my best grade-school/high-school friends who is even more obsessed with the NBA than me (who I introduced to fantasy hoops roto last season) to join me in that First Div league ... I'd love to play out my (likely) last season of fantasy hoops with my "real-life" buddy and some of my most challenging longest-term fantasy-hoops competitors (geodbear, Rounders, the one, etc. - seriously, that's a murderer's row of roto players
If the consensus is "no special treatment for samo" then I'll tip the 'ole cap, move into the proverbial rocking-chair and retire after a reasonably good run.
Ugly truth be told, samo was born within 24 hours of Favre and the punishment we endure to prepare/compete at the highest level of our respective sports ... I don't know how either of us has hung on this long.
Viva la Octagon!
