If Craig Steltz was a real football player, something good wouldn't have happened for the Chiefs here. Oh, and I hate Dexter McCluster. Oh, and Corey Graham, great help.

First of all - the Forte injury rocked me (and not in the good way). I first heard of it thanks to a friend's text since I didn't get the Bears-Chiefs game (which in retrospect was a good thing, stupid Keanu Palko), and I've avoided spending too much time reading or writing about it because of how angry I get. Frankly, I'm treating it like an argument with my wife; if I avoid discussing it, it'll just fade away into the ether and be forgotten, regardless of how nonsensical or unhelpful that is .

So, since we've been a bit light in the fantasy football world around here, I'll be dedicating the comment section to any and all complaints about how your fantasy season has gone thus far.

If your league is normal (i.e. not stupid and running its playoffs into week 17), the fantasy regular season has ended and your team is prepped for playoffs. If your team stunk, you probably don't care anymore, but if you have a chance to wear the crown at the end of the season, you are likely scouring the internet for that final flex player to get you to the next round, or praying that injured/underperforming players are going to step up for you.

In the WCG league, I finished in first place, thanks to a fumble at the goal line by King Leonidas' Purple Cobras last week. I have no complaints about that league (I did go 11-2), but I did lose a first-round bye in another league by .5 fracking points (this after losing my first two games by a combined 2.4 points). In that league, I'm now likely to get throttled by a Cam and Arian-led team. That, my friends, is an example of a bad beat.

Feel free to vent your frustrations you've endured during the fantasy regular season, your own bad beats and anecdotes that we (may) share your pain in. Oh, and in case you're wondering, this rook is gonna take the WCG crown. Boom!
