He lost what 3 family members in the span of 1 month? That's more than some people may go through in a few years. Chris-105 needs to read it.

After I read that story, I did. He is doing all this to help care for his little sister.

i lost my great-grandfather a few years ago then lost my dad the following year but to lose 3 family members in the span of a month would be too much. I have a lot of respect for Robinson and what he has done since then.

    August 21, 2016, 09:12:34 PM
  • chrisetc21: I'll raise .3... and now I'll raise... .3, raise .3
    August 21, 2016, 09:13:05 PM
  • Jonathan: 19.4 and I would do it again. A contract like that has no long term ramifications.
    August 21, 2016, 09:13:26 PM
  • Jonathan: Using a draft pick on him would of cost more. Potential a wasted pick.
    August 21, 2016, 09:14:22 PM
  • chrisetc21: every pick is potentially a wasted pick
    August 21, 2016, 09:15:30 PM
  • Jonathan: I wasn't speaking about any certain league, all leagues he is being overvalued off a few pre-season games.
    August 21, 2016, 09:16:02 PM
  • chrisetc21: I got him in the 5th round in TGF, worth it there
    August 21, 2016, 09:22:41 PM
  • chrisetc21: RB is a special situation, you're not going to find starters in free agency during the season very often, so there's a reason that even long shots are valued highly
    August 21, 2016, 09:23:49 PM
  • chrisetc21: Thomas Rawls for example, undrafted free agent, big return on that investment to whoever signed him or drafted him
    August 21, 2016, 09:24:33 PM
  • Jonathan: RB next year is going to be epic.
    August 21, 2016, 09:31:47 PM

    August 21, 2016, 09:35:17 PM
  • Jonathan: I still like Cook the most.
    August 21, 2016, 09:36:18 PM
  • chrisetc21: What bid won't you match?  Why don't you just tell me, stop wasting everyone's time.
