      Good afternoon Redskins fans!  I have once again been invited to sit in the relative comfort of the press box and shout my thoughts into the void via this blog.  As you watch the game today and see the rain  pour relentlessly from the heavens, know that I am safe and dry.  Know also that @Spaceman Spiff is out there somewhere, cold and unappreciated, rolling around in the muck trying to capture that perfect picture.  Maybe say a little prayer for his health (or laugh, whatever, I’m not judging you).  Also, be sure not to miss the pictures he posts on this site after each game.     
       
      Before we get into today's Redskins game, I want give some thanks for more positive occurrences in DC sports.  Congrats to the Washington Mystics for winning their first championship.  Congrats go out to the Washington Nationals as well for reaching the world series.  These two teams (along with the Caps) are working hard to change the sports related mood around this town, and we're all happier for it. 
       
      Lets move now into less cheerful topics, namely your Washington Redskins!  Yow know things are going bad, and I mean really dang bad, when your team has gone through three quarterbacks and two coaches and your not even half way through the season.  Today's fresh hell comes in the form of a specter of the our recent past coming to smirk at our misfortune.  Im talking of course of Kyle.  Kyle's spent the week assuring everyone that he isn’t holding a grudge, while very obviously holding a grudge.  “Everything else.”  You know what I’m talking about. 
       
      If all he brought to town were his hurt feelings we wouldn’t have a problem.  Sadly, he’s arrived with an undefeated football team that the NFL says we have to play this week.  This feels entirely unfair. 
       
      My generic key to the game:  Run the ball and stop the run.  The team (spoiler alert: 49ers) that does this today will win.   
       
      Redskins Inactives  
      QB Colt McCoy  
      S Deshazor Everett  
      CB Josh Norman  
      RB Chris THompson  
      LB Josh Harvey-Clemons 
      G Wes Martin  
      TE Vernon Davis  
       
      49ers inactives  
      QB CJ Beathard 
      WR Deebo Samuel  
      CB Ahkello Witherspoon  
      FB Kyle Juszczyk 
      T Mike McGLinchey 
      T Joe Staley 
      DL DJ Jones 
       
      1st Quarter Update
      Redskins 0 – 0 49ers
       
      Callahan wasn’t playing around when he said he wanted to run the ball.  That first drive was all runs, and looked great... right up until they tried to pass the ball.  Hopkins missed the relatively short fied goal, because of course he did.     

      Maybe Quinn isn’t a good choice to be returning punts?  Consider it.    
       
      That second Redskins drive looked more like what we’ve come to expect from this offense.  Run for negative yards, pass dropped, and an unsuccessful screen pass.  A quintessential Redskins three and out. 

      Passing yards this quarter:  Redskins 3. 49ers 9.  Are you not entertained?! 
       
      Half Time Update
      Redskins 0 – 0 49ers 
       
      How happy are you to spend your Sunday afternoon watching this game?  Consider that some people paid money, to sit in a poncho, in the rain, to watch this game. 
       
      It’s now time for those half time adjustments that our beloved skins do so well.  It’s unlikely the second half mirrors the first. 
       
      3rd Quarter Update 
      Redskins 0 – 3 49ers  
       
      Good news, this game will not end in a 0-0 tie.  Those half time adjustments have kicked in as expected and the 49ers have found a way onto the scoreboard in this messy throwback game.  The Redskins have decided to spend the second half collecting holding penalties and sadness.  Mercifully, only one quarter remains. 
       
      End of Game Update 
      Redskins 0 – 9 49ers 
       
      Callahan hasn’t spent much time as the head coach of the Washington Redskins, but he’s already proven that his team can waste 2nd half timeouts like a veteran.  It makes little sense to adopt a strategy that shortens the game when your team is losing, and it makes even less sense when your team is short on time outs.  I’m not really sure what the thinking as late in this game.    
       
      Next week Kirk Cousins!

Cool, sounds good. You can pm next time Murda so you can make moves in silence bro.

I think I've let it be known alot over the last few days that you had to let me or kiingspade (when healthy) know when your making roster changes. I don't want to have to enforce rules but will when they are not followed. The titans ,Vikings get a pass because nobody claimed those players through pms but notify me next time. The Jets, sorry bro I had to drop B.Campbell from your roster due to having a claim on him from a owner earlier.

Ok, if I release a player I still have to pay that "Cap Hit" for the remainder of the contract. I thought I saw that somewhere.

So we have to notify you first of who we're signing in FA cause it doesn't say that in Kings rules he put up. It says if we want him to adjust the cap hit of the person we are cutting we need to notify him first.

Yeah but kiing was suppose to edit the salary so you only had it for one season. Ill look at lm and see if I can figure it out.

King said if you notify him before cutting the person then he can adjust it to only be one year. If you go ahead and cut the person then you are stuck with paying the remainder of the contract. So, if the player only has one year left I'd say it doesn't matter either way.

Yea, I thought we just had to notify about trades. I actually had planned on notifying about my pick up of B. Johnson just incase but was having computer issues and wasnt even sure if I had even added him yet bc in LM it didnt give any verification. Now I see he was released and picked up by Chiefs....

Ive posted around pretty frequently to notify me of any impending roster changes. Im looking into the salty editing now so a owner doesn't get stuck with years of a cap hit. Once everyone is familiar and using LM for all transactions then ill let free agency happen with having to notify me.

LM doesn't show transactions as they're done. I go on EAsports.com and check to see if the player I tried to sign went through. EA Posts right away if it wen through on LM

My bad I didn't see that you posted that anywhere until this thread. I was going by the rules King posted for LM I thought that what we were supoosed to do, You might want to add that to the LM Rules he posted. I did send you the my list of players added and dropped though

From Kiingspade

No no! Free Agency is you just go out there and sign him. It will give you contract options and you do all that. I won't handle who you sign in free agency as long as you are staying within the rules (one per week and so on)

My bad, I'm at work, and signed off of my phone, but I was going off of what Kiing had responded. I also sent Kiing a PM to let him know that I wanted to drop my current FB, so he could adjust the cap hit. I just signed my 1 player for the week. Which is the way that I understood the rules to be.

Looks like The Chiefs signed multiple players, thought we could only sign 1 a week.

Its cool man was just a oversight not a big deal. I posted on the league manager board and here so there wouldn't be confusion. Any official change or announcement I'm going to post on the league manager board so it doesn't get lost in here since LM is more controlled.

I put it out and changed it so I can just make sure everyone is using LM for the transactions initially. Im not going to say you can't sign someone if its within the rules. Kiingspade is expirienced with league manager but he's been sick and unavailable for a few days. Im trying to learn LM on the go and making sure I don't have any hiccups. roster transactions dont appear to show right away so I have to sync roster after a few to keep it up to date

I think. Knowing of what is going on before hand is helping learn LM fast in short lol.

How so when I clearly announced /posted you had to notify me of any roster changes before hand yesterday.I can see the confusion if those messages where missed but don't know how they would have been if the start of fa/trades was known. Im working on a fair resolution tho bro.

B.Johnsons Free Agent rights will be resolved in a first and probably not last extrememadden head to head community match.

Coooooley47 vs Thunderdome using league rules via the online community group so the time is like league style.

You guys can use whatever teams you prefer and winner take all..goodluck!

I actually just saw in LM that FA was unlocked so I added him...Wasnt tryin to be a smart ass. Just showing that based off what was said I thought I was following the rules. Doesn't make any sense to ask to add FAs as long as the rules are being followed, which is what I thought I was doing. But like I said, whatever you decide is cool.

I realize and appoligize for the confusion after Vegas posted. You guys playing eachother for him is about as fair as I can think of to fix it.
