"My goal this year was to score 100 points per week. You can't beat me without that.
I would like twelve active members next year.
I don't think anyone could win fourteen games again if everyone puts forth a good effort!"

|1||Joe, you have had quite an astonishing year; the best record and all-around points ever recorded! The 2000 JO-T.B. team is the best this league has ever experienced! What were the key ingredients in producing your first championship season in fantasy football?|
|Hmmm... Of course, protecting Kurt Warner was my best move. I think that Rob Smith had a career year, and the acquisitions of Tiki Barber and Chad Lewis were a plus.|
|2||During the season, you did everything you could to prevent a three-peat by the Fornino Jets. You even announced it to Fred on Draft Day (soft chuckle). |
What made this year so different than the other teams you had managed?
|I had more top scorers at every position than before. The starting players were strong throughout my roster with no glaring weaknesses! |
With Warner and Rob Smith, I was guaranteed at least 100 points every week.
|3|| You have played a very active role in making this league a success (rule enhancements, owner recruiting/encouragement.) |
You speak often that fantasy football is fun for you. Highlight the keys that make this league so enjoyable.
|It's not too complex. I like your league setup, and everyone has a great chance on DraftDay to have a winning team. The fees are reasonably-priced, and I don't think anyone has a worry about sinking big bucks into their team.|
|4||You have been infamous, ever since the inaugural season, for countless draft pool selections in order to bolster your team. Do you see that as a prime requisite for making the playoffs? Do you feel that other teams are doing themselves a disservice by not combing the waiver wire?|
| YES. So many players do not shine on DraftDay and seem underrated at the time. I spend at least an hour a night in general research to find these players. |
If someone doesn't care about improving their team by doing something like that, I don't understand how they think to compete.
|5||How do you plan on celebrating your first championship title? What are your plans in the off-season?|
|Cash this check Saturday, drink some beers, and hang my victory plaque. And as always, follow the ponies!|
