Now, do you want to see something interesting and oh-so-close disappointing?

Here's SteelCityRoller's second-place roster:

Week 8 Runner-up Roster - SteelCityRoller
POS Player Team Cost Points
QB Ben Roethlisberger PIT $35.75 21.5
RB Willis McGahee DEN $28.25 19.5
WR Eric Decker DEN $20.75 16.3
TE Heath Miller PIT $25.25 10.6
K Shaun Suisham PIT $5.00 10.0
WC Josh Gordon (WR) CLE $0.50 4.6

(Totals:)

First four players = identical. Then both kickers put up 10 points. The 2.3-point margin of victory was the difference between Nate Washington and Josh Gordon in the wild card spot.

Tough, tough break for SteelCityRoller for coming so close to winning consecutive weeks (would've been a first for BTSC).

Who've you got this week?

Are you loading up on Steelers and whoever is playing against the Saints? It's proving to be a pretty sound strategy lately.
