I think the overall will be a better race this year, although i'll go against the grain and say that Belkin won't make top 3.

Top vote getters (discarding teams that voted for themselves although Dan has every right being defending champ, i just couldn't pick a clear winner so decided to be optimistic):

Belkin 3
Radioshack
AG2R
Europcar

Could anybody help count up our scores?


winning team: :Lotto:, :RadioShack:, :Movistar:
total score of winning team: 9708
winning rider: Contador, Valverde, Nibali
total score of winning rider: 2433
best rider points/ in scrubs (30-200k salary): Aru, Wellens, A. Yates
best rider points/ in duds (210k+ salary): Kristoff, Peraud, Quintana
highest total score increase 2014 vs. 2013 (only those under contract in 2013): Contador (1097=>2433), Gerrans (495=>1593), then a zillion people around 700 points or so (e.g. Dumoulin, Kristoff, Peraud), I'd propose not scoring the third place here
highest total score of drafted neo-pro: A. Yates, Valgren Andersen, Formolo

Milano-SanRemo: Kristoff, Cancellara, Swift
Tour of Flanders: Cancellara, Van Avermaet, Vanmarcke
Paris-Roubaix: Terpstra, Degenkolb, Cancellara
Liege Bastogne Liege: Gerrans, Valverde, Kwiato
Lombardia: D. Martin, Valverde, Costa
Giro: Quintana, Uran, Aru
Tour: Nibali, Peraud, Pinot
Vuelta: Contador, Froome, Valverde
WCRR: :taco: KWIATO :bacon:, Gerrans, Valverde
WCITT: Wiggo, T. Martin, Dumoulin
WorldTour: Valverde, Contador, Gerrans

(The most humiliating part is that I'm not even sure why I watch them all - mere months later had zero recollection of most those results outside of Grand Tour winners, the recent GdL, and of course that one downhill I spent shouting at the TV while jumping on the sofa.)

I may be able to add up on friday evening if noone else can or wants to do it before.

3/2/1 points for 1st/2nd/3rd picks again?

and the teams with the 3 closest guesses get points for the total score and winning rider score?

Indeed, but we used 4-2-1 points to award the real psychics. Thanks in advance!

    Today at 12:37:01 AM
  • Mets Donations Accepted: Responded dinky
    Today at 12:44:00 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: I’m good with that can you post
    Today at 12:48:49 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: Mets ^
    Today at 12:49:12 AM
  • Mets Donations Accepted: Yeah I’ll post
    Today at 12:50:01 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: Hopefully it’ll pass thanks
    Today at 12:52:00 AM
  • Mets Donations Accepted: Posted Dinky
    Today at 12:56:44 AM
  • Yeagg: Yo Dicky, are you related to indiansnation
    Today at 01:01:47 AM
  • Flash: Tigers-Blue Jays trade is an automatic veto.
    Today at 01:02:13 AM
  • Flash: That is one of the most ridiculous deals I have ever seen.  Come on Dinky, you’re trading and dropping major assets.
    Today at 01:03:42 AM
  • Anthony: Yeah I vetoed
    Today at 01:06:01 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: I’m not trying to destroy the team I’m sticking with it
    Today at 01:08:11 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: I’m not gonna destroy the team and leave I just like these guys better
    Today at 01:09:22 AM
  • Flash: That trade is irresponsible.  Use your head.
    Today at 01:09:30 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: I’m sorry I have Asperger’s syndrome I’m not trying to destroy the team
    Today at 01:10:26 AM
  • Mets Donations Accepted: And we wonder why we don’t get more new owners on here
    Today at 01:10:54 AM
  • Flash: Trade is dead with two vetoes and “I like these guys better” is not good enough.  I don’t usually call GMs out for trades, but this one is beyond any sort of defense. It’s exactly what I warned you about when you first asked to come back to FGM.
    Today at 01:12:07 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: No need to be mean flash it’s my team
    Today at 01:12:31 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: I’m not that familiar with some players
    Today at 01:13:24 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: Because I don’t want to pay for those guys
    Today at 01:14:18 AM
  • Mets Donations Accepted: I didn’t realize there was criteria to join free fantasy leagues here, I must’ve missed the application process when I joined
    Today at 01:15:07 AM
  • Flash: MDA, you know you were taking advantage in this instance, so don’t point fingers of blame.  Many, many trades are approved without incident, but this one is terribly lopsided and cannot ever be justified.
    Today at 01:15:09 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: It’s my team that’s probably why I left years ago I feel like i’m on a witch hunt
    Today at 01:15:34 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: I guess I gotta keep Soto even those that’s the reason Itraded him in the first place it helped my mi
    Today at 01:18:04 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: I’m decent at of without soto
    Today at 01:18:29 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: If both of us agree why does it matter flash
    Today at 01:19:11 AM
  • Mets Donations Accepted: Flash, I’m not even discussing the trade, that’s besides the point. I have this issue with almost every league on here when someone feels the need to tell someone else how to run their team. Whether they’re right or wrong in the end it’s their team. If it’s not blatant collusion then it’s not affecting league integrity
    Today at 01:20:57 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: I guess I have to keep soto
    Today at 01:23:57 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: Mets can we do a trade for Kliffboom

  • DinkyCarsPlus: Mets can you post
    Today at 01:31:37 AM

    Today at 02:20:33 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: I better head to bed it’s almost 1.30am
    Today at 02:24:42 AM
  • DynastyDeacon: I was curious to see the crazy lopsided trade. I am not in the league, but run my own dynasty baseball eague away from this site. From an outsider's opinion that was definitely veto worthy.
    Today at 05:50:27 AM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: I’m keeping Soto now and am gonna resign at end of 2021
    Today at 12:12:24 PM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: I didn’t realize it was lopsided
    Today at 12:13:01 PM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: But I’m fine with our new trade
    Today at 12:13:27 PM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: Flash I posted some Roster moves for fgm I’m most likely gonna keep Juan Soto and sign end of 2021 season
    Today at 01:14:36 PM
  • DinkyCarsPlus: I’m happy I got to keep soto
    Today at 01:15:10 PM
