When your fantasy team starts to stink, do you abandon the league?

    So, I was looking at my Fantasy Hockey team, and I realized I'm more out of my element than I thought. I'm still stuck in pre-lockout mode, having trouble remembering which of the guys with funny names is the good one, being tempted to drop one of my goalies that whose names I struggle to remember in favor of Dominic Hasek who I know is amazing (ok, was amazing 10 years ago)...

    Anyway, I realized that even though I don't know what I'm doing, I still plan to play out the season. Then I went to the MR Fantasy Football League. there I counted 3 teams that seem to have abandoned any attempt to win. They leave guys playing that have byes or are injured. I mean, you can set your team up for each week of the season, so even if you don't have access for 7 days, your can still play expected starters. If they were to have gone 10-4, they would be thrilled, but at 0-3 or 1-2 they have given up and gone home.

    I wonder if employers should encourage fantasy sports - it makes it easy to spot the quitters who ought to be fired and tossed into traffic compared with thsoe who stick it out.

    I keep playing to see if I can play spoiler... :D

    Besides you never know when a second stringer/back up will become the primary focus and go on fire in a week when your starters were out...

    I always do my best to be as active as possible. I miss a football roster deadline every once in a while, but that's usually for the better considering how I manage my football teams.

    I did win my baseball league this morning though -- that makes a fourth straight year! :D I'm a bit too proud of that, I'm afraid ...
