    So the French players weren't just pretty, they also appear ready to play. So much for those of us hoping for another 2002 or 2010. I'm still hoping that Tunisia will conjure up some post-colonial rage and rattle France.

    Soccer is all about draws, right?

    Nine suckers picked Germany, despite their poor showings in the WC four years ago, EC two years ago, and Nations League this year. Both geniuses who picked Japan also picked Argentina, so strikes and gutters for all.

    The games were a bit similar too, with Germany/Argentina creating a bunch of chances in the first half and should have won it there, and then Japan/Saudi sacked up and created a lot more in the second half.

    Pretty sure it’s genii.
    Should have picked more Asian and Arab teams. Sort of home field advantage. Asian football more or less like the sec in terms of fan base solidarity.

    Costa Rica officially asks you to cease after giving up a TD in game 1.
    PM to add username to Redraft 4.1 waiting list. Seasons 2.3 and 3.1 tracking close together now and will be backfilled before next 8 start new 4.1 season. Great practice before TOC2.

    Yep.

    I thought they would be okay value since they are second seed and not first, but nope
