    I think the first pick was from Lobo in Small posting in the wrong thread. Just checked the Sand Squads, just one Rodrigo.

    Aaronson opens his scoring account for Leeds. Go Union!

    But of course I decided to play Antonio instead of Aaronson, and Antonio once again did nothing. D’oh! My forwards have been a total bust so far. Switching from 3-4-3 to to 3-5-2 from here on out…

    I believe that the team that originally picked Rodrigo is not in Sand, which is why he said “sorry.” Maybe I’m looking at this wrong, but I don’t think that this player is in our league, assume that he in a different division of All Rocks.

    Do I have this correct?

    After looking more closely, it looks like the original transfer was by a player from Small Rocks, so I believe my transfer is legal. Again, please correct me if I’m wrong.

    I added a few sort buttons to the Taken Players tab on our spreadsheet. If you have a chance, play around with them, and let me know if they work. If they do work, you should be able to click on them and the sheet will sort itself in the manner described. They work fine on my machine, but sometimes these things don't travel well. Also, if they do work, let me know if there are any other sorts you would like me to add a button for or any other functionality that you might want.

    If anyone wants to play the Champions League fantasy game we have an 'All Rocks' league there. Those that played last year can rejoin the same league by clicking on the 'leagues' tab in the game. Anyone else can DM me for the league code if they'd like to join.

    First deadline/match is tomorrow.

    Sandy Cup begins in a few days, should be a great tournament which tends to have surprises every year. World Cup 2022 had some great matches (USA showed a lot of heart, did well in the group stage but their defense wasn’t able to contain Memphis and others) and the final was an exciting one, except for the buffoon-like antics of Martinez. Hopefully he will leave the premier league someday soon, he may be a decent goalie but as a person he is garbage and an example of unsportsmanship. He ridiculed some of the French players in a demeaning way after the final and also spouted a lot of anti-English comments which also shows he is an idiot since he plays in the premier league. I’m hoping Villa fans will boo him on his return, I know that fans from the other clubs will so maybe we will decide to leave. If he does, good riddance.

    Sandy Cup quarterfinal first leg results are in:

    (1) Borussia DaMarcus = 86 pts vs. (8) The Javelinas = 43 pts
    (2) Morning Glory = 41 pts vs. (7) Parraraiders = 35 pts
    (3) Living in Dreamland = 47 pts vs. (6) FC Epikoinos = 52 pts
    (4) Stormin Gunners = 58 pts vs. (5) Revealed: Starboy XI = 75 pts

    Second leg starts tomorrow, my team (down by 17 pts) and The Javelinas team (down by 43 pts) need to make up a considerable margin to be able to advance to the semifinals, the other two matchups are very close with only 5 and 6 pts separating them. Good luck all in the second leg!

    Could everyone please continue to check and update the google sheet? I just looked at it for the first time in a while and can't figure out where Ings is supposed to be. He's listed on Javelinas, but Epikoinos picked him up and dropped him...

    OK now I see Javelinas dropped Ings in week 17 before Epikoinos picked him up. Javelinas' team roster was never updated to show Richarlison. Doing that now...

    It’s fitting that the top two teams in Sand are battling for the Sandy Cup title. Looks like it will be a close finish, probably will depend on which top forward (Haaland or Kane) has a better game. Last game is on Monday so I’ll post the winner on Monday night, also with the trophy (my 7-yr old son made it a few years ago, it will be updated with the new champion along with the names of all past champions). Good luck to the two finalists!

    Fewer than 30 points separate promotion from 6th place.

    Borussia DaMarcus wins the Sandy Cup! Kane had a goal today but needed a hat-trick for Living in Dreamland to make up the difference from the weekend (mostly from Haaland’s hat trick). Great tournament all and I’ll post the trophy soon with the new champion added to the list of previous Sandy Cup champions. Let the trophy etching begin!

    Trophy etching still in progress (printer not working, hopefully tomorrow can print the list of Sandy Cup champions to go with the trophy) but attached photo gives a preview. Great tournament and exciting final. Congrats to Borussia DaMarcus! F8B3BA46-20AD-4A3C-AC7D-98F7F52DC721.jpeg
