He discovered a world of deceptions, double meanings, symbols and hidden information that the vast majority of people are ignorant of.

It's that time of year again. You guessed it, the time of year when El Commish Chris and Bye Week manager Justin go over the matchups and make fun of those that never seem to win in fantasy football **cough**Lauren**cough**. As always we will provide you with our insight on how the matchups went and how it could have gone differently had you actually cared to look at your team. We will hand out the weekly awards and maybe even have something interesting to add to your day. Though I wouldn't count on it. Also time permitting we will try and preview Week 2.
