Women Can Be At Fault Too!

I find it quite interesting that there are many blogs, videos, and streams talking about what a woman should do in a relationship when it comes to dealing with men’s negative/positive behavioral patterns. Yet, I rarely see or read anything about what a man should do about a woman’s negative/positive behavior when it comes to relationships.

Why is that? Well, I’ve pondered this question for a good bit and after doing some pseudo research, it is my belief that that market for women looking to find answers about what to do with their “no good” man vastly outnumbers men’s desires to understand women.

See, the only people that seem to understand women are other women; and they have a hard time liking each other. You know what though? Maybe it’s time for men to start challenging the shitty behaviors of women in a relationship. Let’s be honest here, if a relationship is supposed to be a “50/50 partnership”, how come it almost always falls on the man to be “perfect” or “he has to change” in the relationship?

Meanwhile, the female has a ton of leeway to do as she pleases. You can literally type into Google, “how to tell if my man is a good man”, “how to make my man do what I want”, “how to tell if a man is doing this or that” and receive a ton of feedback. Yet, if you flip the question around and replace “men” with “women”, your search results are more likely to be few and far in-between. If we are supposedly in an era of “post-modern feminism” where woman are just as capable as men, then why don’t we hold women to equal if not a higher standard in a relationship?

Sure, some of you may read this and get upset at the fact, I’m challenging the status quo. To that I say, go ahead and bitch. But if we are going to be honest and keep things equal and fair, you women need to step your game up too! There are plenty of things that women do wrong in a relationship that needs to be addressed. So why are we ignoring these acts?

Whose turn is it to do the dishes?

A couple of weeks ago, Steve from Colorado brought up an interesting point of contention in his relationship. Why do I always have to do the dishes? Makes sense right, after all, you both dirty the dishes, you both see the mess in the kitchen, and the buildup of gunk and odors that rapidly accumulates in the area where you prepare your meals is hardly unnoticeable. So why does it feel like only one person steps up to do the dishes all the time?

First off, let’s call it what it is, it’s not about dishes. Dirty dishes becomes the encompassing focus but look at that sink of chaos and every item in it is more than just a fork, a plate or a spoon.  See that dirty plate- that’s all the times you do the work during sex and she lays there and then complains to her friends later that she isn’t satisfied. Oh and that coffee cup with the solidified chunks of creamer and caffeine residue – that’s really last Sunday when she interrupted the football game for the 100th time to ask which shade of pink you preferred on her nails. Really look at that overflowing mess and recognize it for what it is- feelings of resentment because things are one sided or just not fair in the relationship.

Week 9 Draftkings optimal lineup

Clearly, I was wrong last week. No one saw Panthers-Bucs only scoring 21 points combined. Also the NE-LAC was a major flop. 2 of my games I honed in on failed big time. Deshaun Watson and DeAndre Hopkins against the Seahawks. Who saw that coming? I know I didn’t. I may have started them in a fantasy league of mine but they were ignored almost entirely in my optimal lineup. I consider optimal, safe and sure bets. If you look at last weeks optimal lineup, I wasn’t taking many risks. I was trying to win you and I some money. That’s the thing about fantasy sports and sports in general. Its a tough game. I’m 2-6 in 1 league but find myself 4th in points scored. Its the luck of the draw. Like I stressed last week, money and luck trump over knowledge.

I’ll take another swing at it this week. Feel free to agree or disagree.

QB – Deshaun Watson 8,100 (vs IND)

RB – Adrian Peterson 5,600 (vs SF)

RB – Alfred Morris 5,500 (vs KC)

WR – Devin Funchess 5,400 (vs ATL)

WR – Ted Ginn Jr. 5,000 (vs TB)

WR – Will Fuller V 7,000 (vs IND)

TE – Jack Doyle 4,300 (vs HOU)

FLEX – Evan Engram 5,600 (vs LAR)

DEF – Eagles 3,300 (vs DEN)

Immediately you can question 2 things here. Why Funchess for starters. Kelvin Benjamin just left town and even before then, Funchess was Newtons favorite target. He led the team in targets once Olsen went down. With Benjamin out of town and Greg Olsen still hurt and no other viable option, it has to be Funchess.

Deshaun Watson can be another one here. But he has a favorable matchup and is lighting up the scoreboard. Will Fuller seems to find the end zone with every reception he makes.  They have priced DeAndre Hopkins out of reach. At 9,200 he is 1,400 more than the next WR Julio Jones. Will Fuller sits at 7k and with the 2,200 you essentially gained by picking Fuller over Hopkins it allows upgrades elsewhere.

I’m not a practically big believer in Adrian Peterson but the numbers don’t lie. SF is dreadful and they currently rank 32nd against the run. The only thing that worries me is with Drew Stanton throwing the ball, they will stack the box and wipe out the run. Despite that, I still believe he is the safe bet here.

Alfred Morris and Ted Ginn Jr. are 2 of my boom or bust guys. We know now Alfred Morris is starting in place of Ezekiel Elliott during his 6 game suspension. KC is tough against the run but we can’t ignore the Cowboys offensive line. They will open up holes for Morris and I believe at the worst, he’s good for a goal line TD. Which brings me to my 2nd choice, Ted Ginn Jr. I think the Bucs-Saints will have a high scoring game. The Saints defense has looked solid but it’ll be hard to stop all the Bucs weapons. Which will cause Brees to throw down the field and throw often. Ted Ginn will benefit here. Expect a solid day from him and at 5,000 anything more than an average game is a win here.

My 2 TEs I chose Jack Doyle and Evan Engram in the flex are their respective teams entire offenses. Doyle goes against the Texans who down many key players can’t seem to stop opposing offenses. I don’t think Doyle will repeat last weeks effort when he caught 12 balls for 121 yards and a score but I expect an 8-80-1 type game from him. Solid production for 4,300. Evan Engram goes against a tough Rams defense. He went against the Seahawks and Broncos in his last 2 games and still walked away each week with a touchdown. If Sterling Shepard sits out another week, Eli will have no choice but to keep feeding Engram. Which in turn feeds our point total.

The Eagles defense to me doesn’t need any explaining. They’ve been a great unit and with them going against the suddenly dreadful Broncos defense. They make sense. They are ranked in the middle of the pack for defenses but they will give you a good return on your investment.

Good luck everyone this week, check out my facebook page @theDailySpike for more information and any other questions you may have!

 

 

Week 8 Draft Kings optimal lineup

 

I’m going to try to provide an optimal Draft Kings lineup each week. I started back up doing draft kings about a month ago after a 2 year hiatus. So I’m still trying to get a feel
for how things work after using Fanduel for years.

I’ve come to like DK more because of the non use of a kicker and the more realistic prices. Fanduel allowed me to have a star-studded lineup and feel very confident in my squad. Only to get thumped each week.

One thing I will tell EVERYONE after not really caring about it til this past year. Do NOT enter
multi entry tournaments. I was the guy who entered 5-10 dollar leagues on a weekly basis where I believe, there was no max entries on fanduel.

I’d be playing guys who had entires that would make you scroll for what seemed to be minutes. One minor tweak in any of there lineups meant the difference between winning 20 bucks or 200 bucks.
