UPDATE: We originally had a poll asking you if John should be allowed to pick a 7th defender. I suggested it was only fair. John deleted that poll. Please let us know what you think in the comments. Don't let John's hatred of democracy sway you. USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA!

I was stunned yesterday when John used his "final pick" to select Jared Gaither. The reason I was stunned is that we are drafting for 7 on 7 flag football, but if John only wants to have six guys on defense that's his choice. I don't agree with it and I think it shows an incredible amount of arrogance on his part.*

I appreciate the fact that none of you guys pointed this out to him because I'm sure he would have tried to take back his mistake before I could sew up this competition by drafting Antoine Cason and Marcus Gilchrist. By taking our two most athletic cover guys and having one of them (Cason) only play defense my defense is significantly better than the (non) Hat Eaters' six man defense.

The Raider Haters were already clearly superior on offense given that we have the only sure fire Hall of Famer on the team in Antonio Gates, the only starting caliber Center on the team in Nick Hardwick, the only starting caliber running back on the team in Ryan Mathews and the #1 wide receiver on the depth chart in Robert Meachem.

Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to go make space on my shelf for the trophy I assume I get for winning this competition.**

*Then again, what do you expect from a guy that promises to eat hats, fails to eat hats then tries to bribe you into voting for his team by lying about eating a hat again.

**By which I mean make space for the beer John has to buy me by making a trip to the urinal.
