Eric Gordon's membership in the order is currently under review. His candidacy at this time seems to be lacking in the approriate credentials, but a heavy dose of mockery and derision might convince the membership commitee.


I believe you'll have to make more fun of him than yourself to get EG in, dyrak. Wait did you say you drafted him in the second round? Of a ten-player keeper?

At this point I'm willing to stand firmly behind Gordon's candidacy. I think he's gone above and beyond the normal level of prima-donna-ish inability to recover from injuries and I think he'll be a credit to the OotDF. We need to start discussing a title for him. ;-D

It's a real pleasure to see this thread back from the abyss too. :-D

Looking back at the OP, I agree with Red, the order needs an overhaul. We need to jettison some dead weight and get current. So, with that in mind, lets take nominations for a couple of positions and once we have a base membership I'll start a new thread.

The OotDF needs...

1 Grand High Poobah

2 or 3 Dukes of the DL

and perhaps 10 Knights of the DNP

More is always better, but we need to stick with quality ideas too.

All titles and descriptions will be considered, keep in mind that the basic format is an order of knighthood, so if you can manage to be mocking, funny, and slightly old-fashioned sounding, you stand a great chance.

Gash Gordon, Defender of the Uni-Brace


This is something I could get behind. ;-D

Merely, with the condensed schedule, there will be an all time high for games missed due to injury this year. I was exagerating, slightly

Yeah, I came into this season thinking two things would be high - DNPs and TOs. So far, so good. !+)

Games missed this season will have to be taken with a grain of salt for OotDF membership unless there's an underlying history of injury and/or Vince Carter-ness.

Good to hear Fenris. :-)

Love the Gordon reference, but I was hoping we could come up with something involving 'Commissioner Gordon' as it's largely become his new moniker amongst Hornet fans. O:-)
