Mar Cash bans a team from his fantasy football league, has other teams quit out of boredom, and still can't manage to make even the consolation playoffs in a ten-team league with the dumbest scoring system in the history of fantasy sports.  A sad day for all Assaholics.

LOL

What did I do to deserve a ban, anyway?

He also had one guy with two teams, and allowed him to make lop sided trades with himself.

I think the ban came down to an exchange similar to this, from 1999:

Chief Wiggum: Alright smart guy, where's the fire?
Homer Simpson: Over there.
[Homer points to a fire at the police station]
Chief Wiggum: Okay, you just bought yourself a 317, pointing out police stupidity... Or is that a 314? Nah nah, 314 is a dog uh, in, no or is that a 315?... You're in trouble pal.

1. Pirates losing game 7 of the NLCS, any more said would risk undoing years of therapy.

2. Pens losing in the second round to the Islanders in game 7 back in 1993. Should have been the third cup in a row, that was by far the best team the Pens ever fielded. In fact between losing Badger Bob and Mario's cancer battle the whole year was one long punch in the stomach for Pens fans.

3. Neil Motherfucking O'Donnell literally handing Super Bowl XXX to Dallas with picks that looked like they were drawn up to go to the defense.

4. Steelers losing the AFC championship to San Diego in 1994.

5. Pens losing the Cup finals in 2008 to Detroit. The Red Wings were the better team that series, but the Pens were making me think they could pull it off before going splat in game 6.


Looking back, the early 90s were brutal for Pittsburgh sports fans. You had 3 different teams in three straight years punch you in the dick in championship moments. Pirates in 1992, Pens in 1993, Steelers in 1994.

1 - the Habs beat the Blackhawks in game 7 of the 1970 - 1971 Stanley Cup finals.
      I was a Blackhawks fan & hated (always will) the Canadiens. Final score, 3-2.

2 - Blue Monday. The Dodgers beat the Expos 2-1 in game 5 of the NLCS (1981).
     I always hated the Dodgers & that POS Lasorda.  Rick Monday homers
     in the 9th, killing the Expos. They would never reach the postseason again.

3 - 1985, the Royals beat the Blue Jays in game 7 of the ALCS. The Jays led the
     series 3 -2 . This was the first year the playoffs were extended to best of 7.
     If not, the Jays win the series. Fuck. Ironically, this was the best Blue Jay team
     record wise, winning 99 games in the regular season.

4 - game 7 of the 1960 WS. The Yanks totally dominated the series stats-wise,
     but lost to Mazeroski's home run. Red Sox fans hate Bucky fucking Dent.
     Yankee fans hated Bill fucking Maz.

5 - game 7 of the 1975 WS. It was such a great series that I thought it would end 
     with a dramatic homer in the 9th. The ending was anti-climatic..

My In-laws are all Yankee fans. My Father-In-Law is 66 years old and was 15 when the Yanks and Pirates met in 1960. We watched the game on the MLB network on Christmas day. Let me assure you, Yanks fans STILL hate Bill Mazeroski. LOL

To this end, the 1994 season getting cancelled when the Expos had a great team and a legit chance to get to the World Series was as disappointing of a moment as I've ever experienced in relation to baseball.

that was their year if they were ever going to have one, they knew they wouldn't be able to keep that team together. Damn shame.

I always hoped the Expos & Blue Jays would meet in the World Series.

4. Marc Crawford not putting Gretzky into the Nagano games shootout was bad.


Nope.

And...is that the shootout where Hasek dominated the Canadian team and then split Richard Smehlik's head open during the celebration?

Yeah, that defense was really going to set the world on fire.  Oilers would have swept :D

dogfacedgremlin34 wrote: I think Bill Simmons might refer to these as the "Stomach Punch Games".  The rules for this list compilation are simple--keep it to 5 games or less, keep it to games that were part of a playoff or tournament (i.e., Olympic ice hockey, NCAA Final Four, World Cup, etc.), and keep it to teams and years that you actually rooted for, and actually had an emotional interest in.  (For example, one of the most disappointing losses that immediately popped into my head was the 1978 Red Sox "Bucky F'in Dent" game.  However, I was too young in 1978, and didn't follow the Sox or even baseball then, so I really didn't root for that team, nor did I have an emotional interest in the outcome of the game.)

Being from Boston, I have a selection of disappointing losses from the sports teams that I've rooted for and been loyal to from which to choose; as discussed here, last night's Celtics loss was particularly devestating to me, to the point that it comes in at number five on my list.  My list is:

1.  Patriots lose to NY Giants, Super Bowl XLII, 2007
2.  Red Sox lose to NY Mets, Game 6, 1986 World Series
3.  Red Sox lose to NY Mets, Game 7, 1986 World Series
4.  Red Sox lose to NY Yankees, Game 7, 2003 ALCS
5.  Celtic lose to Lakers, Game 7, 2010 NBA Finals

For the record, the only reason Game 6 of the '86 World Series is my personal number two is because (1) the Sox won in 2004 and (2) the Super Bowl XLII loss was so devestating.  If not for those two factors, Game 6 would've been my number one by default.

Thanks for the bump, tamalie.  I can see by what I wrote here back in June that Sunday's Patsies debacle still wouldn't even register in my Top 5.  It might make my Top 10 though...I'd have to give it a bit more thought.  Lotsa disappointing Red Sox teams back in the day...


In lieu of tonight's developments, I figure I'd have to update this to reflect more recent events. I'd probably have to keep my Top 5 as is, but call tonight's Patsies/Gints Super Bowl "5A". Coming in at 6 and 7 respectively are the 2011 Patsies playoff loss to the Jets, and the 2010 Patsies playoff loss to the Ravens. Coming in as an asterisk (*) for me (since it technically wasn't a playoff loss and all) was the 2011 Red Sox September implosion.

See, here's the thing about Boston sports...yes, we've had an ungodly amount of riches in the last decade--7 championships in 10 years is evidence of that; however, we've had nearly as many colossal disappointments in the same amount of time. So there.

I know, I know...cry me a fucking river. But still...

5. Marvin Hagler loses split decision (robbed of middleweight title) to Sugar Ray Leonard  1987  *I know this is not a team loss but Hagler was adored by the Boston faithful and I personally wept at the injustice of this decision*


yesterday doesn't even make my top five - great game, could have gone either way, Giants played better at the end and deserved the victory, not much more to say than that

This is a great one.  It's why to this day I can't stand Leonard.



X3......Hagler/Hearns were great. Disliked Leonard when it seemed hed
eek out a cheap win, then trash both afterwards. Hagler literally destroyed him a few times, only to get the shaft in the end.
