Selfish Player Puts Mother's Death Over Fantasy Teams
Thousands of fantasy football managers were left high and dry Sunday night after wide receiver Robert Woods was deactivated at the last minute by his real-life team for "personal reasons".
Catching over 70% of his owners off guard (based on online statistics of teams who started him despite his inactive status) the frustration felt by those adversely affected by Woods decision not to play was later amplified by news that he skipped the game due to his mother's death from cancer.
"I'm sorry, but that's just weak. Especially when you're playing in the night game and there's hardly any free agents left," one Woods owner griped. "Now I've got a goose egg on my score sheet and have to count on Hunter Henry to outscore Mike Williams by 3.2 points Monday Night."
Still other fantasy players harshly questioned Woods commitment to their squads.
"Cancer? Sounds like he could have given more of a heads up. I mean, it's not like she got hit by a bus or something," Belichik's Bitchtits owner Ryan Brooks reasoned.
Woods, whose mother's funeral will reportedly take place this Thursday, is expected to return for next Monday's tilt against the Ravens. Owners however might be well-advised to pay attention to any interviews he might conduct before that time in order to determine whether he might be too sad to have a good game.
