The most competitive draft league at CAC, Franchise A, is in need of new captains.  The Flint Tropics have just won their 4th straight championship and the league is in dire need of some competitive balance.

This will be the final season in the league for the Flint Tropics dynasty.  We have dominated this league for too long.  We are just hoping that of all the wanna-be great captains in the CACosphere that someone will step up to the challenge of knocking off the Tropics as we ride off into the sunset.

Noah Spaulding, its tough to imagine you being successful in my franchise league when you can’t even win B Draft in your last several tries, but at least I know you won’t be afraid to give it a shot and then publicly blame the eventual loss on all of your teammates. C’mon Tibbs, you know every bid I’ve ever entered which must give you some kind of advantage. Frongi, you know you want to be my heir apparent, so instead of waiting for me to retire so it can be handed to you, come take it. Scott Mulholland, get The Sauce back together. Bryan Walsh, we all know youre a pansy, but you are the only captain besides Scott to win a title during the Tropics dynasty so come see if you can find magic in a bottle one more time. Is Drew Debari still around acting like 5v5 draft titles are something to brag about?

We all know none of those captains are the real solution though. You are all pretenders that would go down in CAC history if you could ever construct the team to dethrone the Tropics. There’s only one captain who has a chance to dethrone the Tropics, and no I’m not talking about Sam Boyer, no that would be Mike Kuzdeba. Kuz, you and I are tied for 5 career Franchise titles. Are you really going to sit idly on your rotting farmer’s porch while I steal the lead away from you?  C’mon.  Just one season.

Congrats Billy on your accomplishments, what’s funny though is not one of those four titled teams are even considered in the top three of greatest Franchise A team’s ever.

When we talk about the greatest teams in franchise history, only 2 come to mind: jerk store (the only undefeated team in franchise history) and ruff’s title team. THAT. IS. IT.

I am very on the fence for this season, but getting The Sauce back together would definitely sway that decision.

There should be no problem assembling that team at this point in all of your old man basketball careers

I would openly allow the following teams to be just inserted into the league withheld from any potential salary restrictions:

Fischer-Mazz-Ruff-Marcel-Fermon (5 person roster)

Vladi-Joe-Kerr-Scott-Brad-PlayerX

That would be a fun season

Alright I’ve split everybody in the draft pool w/ a few additions minus 2 rooks into 7 teams.  Who says no to these foundations?

Tropics – Billy, Sovis, Ryan, Khaled, Pollock, Frank
Jerk Store – John Martin, Leblanc, Gasser, JMul, Kuz
Mul Sauce – Vladi, Joe, Kerr, Scott, Yeakley, Brad
GGG – Fisch, Mazz, Ruff, Marcel, Remy, Nelly
Ferm – Ferm, Rosy, Swecker, Lyon, Cawley
KAP – Medeiros, KAP, Ray, Kodra, B-Rob
Hof – Hof, Brett, Cox, Kofi, Eliot

If Marcel is out you give Gasser to GGG and recruit Terry Henderson for Jerk Store

Jerk Store – John Martin, Leblanc, Gasser, JMul, Kuz
Mul Sauce – Vladi, Joe, Kerr, Scott, Yeakley, Brad

No way Ryan isn’t on Jerk Store in any of these scenarios.

Also, I don’t know who the third team is in the top three,  but the undefeated Jerk Store, and the one with Terry both deserve to be in there.

Sorry Kuz, Ryan is a Tropic.  Unless we are talking about Ryan Fischer…there’s nothing Tropical about him.

Ruff – We have 5 championships, not 4.  Each of my 5 championship teams has a legitimate claim for the best team in Franchise history.  Even the two with Swecker.  I would put any one of my 5 championship teams against any team that you consider to be one of your “greatest Franchise A team’s ever.”  I’d even put my 2 non-championship teams up too.  But, your disrespect is noted and will not be forgotten.

Since we’re talking about history and I mentioned respect, I gotta give props to the championship Mul Sauce team and the Jerk Store team with Terry.  They are the only two teams to knock the Tropics out of the playoffs.  These are two great teams that I have a bunch of respect for.  Same goes for the individual players.  Also, I fucking hate both of these teams.

Shout out to Sammy!  Not everyone on the Tropics forgot about you homey!

Very tempting.

I was once a captain in “A Draft” and lost in the championship. The team we lost to added a player midseason as a “fill in.” That “fill in” won MVP. The very definition of being Tibbs’d (#Tibbs’d).

The last time I was in Franchise I had a team that was definitely the best in the league and should have won the title. Unfortunately Ryo Gokita decided to film his And 1 Mixtape during our playoff game and blew it for us (#shotsfired #mazzfriend #stillbitter).

Also, as it relates to B Draft – I’ve won multiple titles. I’ve lost the last two. One because Ouellette shit the bed in the title game (#shotsfired #stillbitter) and this most recent one because we had to play minus to the DPOY.

I’m hesitant to captain Franchise because the last time I did there was a debacle where Tibbs wasn’t online during deadlines and despite multiple emails and messages of “yo, where are you? we need to bid on X before deadline?” he used his absence as a excuse to confirm bids that shouldn’t have stood (#Tibbs’dAgain).

Someone share the draft sheet with me and I’ll gladly review to see if I think I can build a winning team.

Come on man anytime your team wins a championship you can make a claim that they are the greatest team ever.  Doesn’t necessarily mean it’s true though.  People have this discussion about NBA teams all the time.  Just know my comment wasn’t trying to disrespect you or what the Tropics have accomplished.  Winning CAC championships are hard.  Just in my opinion I don’t consider any of those teams as one of the greatest ever.

Sorry ruff but pretty much any of my teams would destroy your championship team with Fischer and mazz.  Not tryina talk trash but that team couldn’t stop anyone and we would lock you guys up.  The only team on the wall of champions that belongs in the same conversation as the tropics championship teams is the jerk store team with terry

All I know is the core 5 of that team which included Marcel and Fermon never lost a game when all 5 guys played.  4 of those guys won something like 14 games in a row.  Anyway you’re entitled to your opinion but my team would literally smack any Tropic team.
