The Men Up North – Fantasy Football Week 14

Felipe Melecio

Felipe Melecio was the managing editor for the blog Pathological Hate. He believes that math is your friend and numbers can be fun, especially when it comes to baseball. Keep tabs on all his knee-jerk reactions on Twitter:
In this week’s episode of The Men Up North Sports Podcast, the guys kickoff the show by comparing and contrasting the differences between playing in a few league versus a pay league and come away with a surprising, yet obvious conclusion.
The conversation switched over to discussing the very “controversial” Monday Night Football game between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Pittsburgh Steelers which had many folks on social media wondering if that game may have been too violent….
….which then streamlined to a conversation about Jon Gruden who was calling said Bengals/Steelers game as he too thought the game may have been too violent which left the guys wondering if he actually wants to coach an NFL team or not….
….But if he did want to coach again, we try to speculate which current potential opening would be best for him or if he might be better off staying in the broadcast booth.
The guys also announce the results of the first round of their Podcast League playoffs which saw Matt Bushnell advancing and Felipe Melecio losing to Mario Mergola.
Matt’s victory also opens up dialogue about the nature of Point Per Reception Leagues and what may be the best approach to being successful in them.
Our last main topic of discussion, we review the first four rounds of the Podcast League’s draft and take a look are the hits and misses in those rounds and come away with a major revelation about fantasy football drafts.
All this and more on the Men Up North Sports Podcast!
