    He can just field 20 shopping carts with broomstick dummies attached. Manning can still win with that. At least, that’s what ESPN tells us.

    whats he going to do with his 17 draft picks if he cant sign any of them? if it comes to that, then he traded peterson for a bunch of useless picks.

    I don't mean that.

    I mean your stunt of going around retracting bids and ****ing up the entire process. I didn't want to use **** in my original post so I used jack. Maybe messed up would have made more sense to you.

    By all means feel free to overpay for a WR ... after all ... everyone else is.

    i havent overpaid for any wrs. and it didnt **** anything up. not all bids are final. bids have been voided before due to the same rule. even with the new rule, a bid could still be invalid and voided, which would cause the same problem. i didnt tell anyone to go bid on someone else. i simply upped the offer on a few guys, and not by very much at all.

    No matter what his plan backfired. He's either going to lose him completely or pay way more than he already had him for.

    No other offseason will be as crazy as this one, that is for sure. The Winter of Manning will never be forgotten.

    voided bids are lame, loophole or no loophole its lame rule 8 says cannot retract bids, to manipulate the 10 bid rule to void is BS. Just saying, mistakes happen, I am the first to admit that. But to intentionally do that is wrong, sorry got that out.

    Now whatever, didnt affect me so whatever.

    GM league history has been made:

    1st player to be signed for $20+ million
    1st player to be signed for $30+ million
    1st player to be traded to, released, and signed by the same team.
    1st player to destroy a franchise in the process of signing with another, twice.

    Peyton Manning just keeps adding to the record books.

    Then his team page isn’t updated.

    I traded him Shaun Rogers at $5.5m for a 4 and a 6. He released Rogers and re-signed him in free agency for $2m.

    i guess he thought it was worth a 4th and 6th to make him a free agent. not a horrible move, unless you were planning on cutting him already.

    Peyton Manning, Reggie Wayne, Dallas Clark, Dwight Freeney

    vs

    Matt Hasselbeck, Lance Moore, Donald Lee, Aaron Kampman


    DESTROYED!


    The Colts are without a doubt no longer a favorite to win the division. Titans have Peyton Manning, Brandon Marshall, Kenny Britt, Wes Welker, Dallas Clark, and Peyton Hillis. The Colts will be lucky to cover one of them.

    what i did had no bearing on whether or not i got manning back. doug free's bid was raised within 48 hours, freeing up enough space for me to bid on manning. all i did was expedite the process. so quit crying. nothing was effected. im not here claiming to be the greatest either. its a fake game we play for fun. i decided what i wanted to do with the titans and i did it. i didnt force you to purge your roster and match the bid on manning, in fact i gave you a month to prepare for it instead of springing it on you at the last second. i didnt force the vikings to trade peterson or orton. he did it for a chance at manning, and because this is fun. if i lost out on manning in either of these epic battles, then oh well. it was a challenge and i enjoyed it. getting manning on a technicality due to clerical error was unexpected. i wanted to see how far schisno would really go. i was going to press him until he broke, or until i did.
