If I was on the committee, I’d be worried the 2014 season is going to be as chaotic as the 2008 season. (It’s looking like it will.) I’m not sure where all their confidence comes from, because the only take-away I’ve gleaned from the mock meetings is that the process still needs work.
That’s what they’re asking us to do, right? They want us to believe they can look at film and read metrics the same way Miss Cleo reads tarot cards. Using mythical soothsayer powers, they can magically find the four “best teams”. Supposedly, this is a better system than picking the four teams most deserving based on actual results.

Kevin knew the ghosts were still on some people’s minds, if not on their tongues. He could see the signs. Take the tunnel, for example. The dark tunnel where he and Stephen met Red Eyes was now full of lights. Kevin thought it unlikely that a person would randomly install big florescent lights in the tunnel. Somebody was motivated to install those lights. And nothing is more motivating than meeting a pair of ghostly red eyes in a pitch-black tunnel.
“Forget the loot, Billy, you need to get out of there before the smoke gets you!”
Billy looked up and noticed heavy smoke just above his head. Oh no! Quickly, he grabbed the indian’s haversack and put it on. He tried to pull the beaded necklace over the skull, but he inadvertently knocked the indian’s skull off and it rolled between Billy’s legs. He shoved the beads in the haversack and grabbed the pistol to boot, turned and ran.

Duck season approaches, which is also making his new limitations hit home hard. This summer we discovered that Jake can’t be pulled back into the boat like he used to–like the way you are supposed to do with Labrador Retrievers–because it hurts his back to grab him now.
