    I just want to point out that Aidan is also a captain of White and that he did just as much work as I did if not more. The man deserves some recognition.

    I think I just puked in my mouth.

    Yet another season begins where we worship Josh Layton’s brilliance only to watch him choke time after time on his own greatness. Has he actually done anything in league recently besides imploding towards the end of the season? Last I checked you don’t get discs for participation in the A bracket.

    Sure, surround Josh with a bunch of great players and watch him win a summer beach tournament, but surround him with G-ville league players and he’s mediocre at best. Maybe the article should have been titled, “Why Josh and Aiden won the regular season but not the championship.”

    Sky, get off your knees, its not very lady like.

      Sounds like someone is just a little jealous they aren’t being talked about. Maybe instead of whining, you should improve your skills. Then, someone might actually bother writing about you.

    • Doctor's Advice to Cynic says:

      Also, Josh Layton is an genuinely nice guy and you would be lucky to have him as your friend, Cynic.

  3. Cynic says:

    Layton reminds me of Jim Kelly’s Bills.

  4. Josh Layton says:

    I wish this guy would have said this 24 hours ago. “Mediocre at best” is the kind of stuff I could have used to not have been a first rounder. At least someone understands. And after googling Jim Kelly I have to say, this guy hit the nail on the head. Thanks for your kind feedback citizen.

      Also, last season my team was at the opposite end of the “Who Won the Draft” article. The season before that my team was ranked in the bottom 4. Just saying.

  5. Adub says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Layton wrote this article himself…. All this false piety… Josh you can quit acting humble… You’re not filling anyone anyone…

    Lime plans to score against teams who play hard defense.

  7. Conrad says:

    Do appreciate the love for my team. We gonna rock. Just like Aidan, Adam did a good deal of drafting for my team so he deserves credit for a good draft as well. I’m looking forward to playing with some new players this summer. I think Lu/Lemons team is the team to beat personally.

    But actually cynic pushing so much hate on a guy who’s won league, as a captain and not. I’m hoping some of the intense negativity was an attempt at humor rather than actual feelings. Don’t feel like league is supposed to be taken so seriously you feel noxious from reading a writeup on the league website that is entirely one persons opinion and that you should call out one player for being bad while using an anonymous tag. Maybe we should concentrate more on having fun and getting to know people in our community. If he thinks Josh is mediocre he hasn’t paid much attention.

    The hype’s only alive because he stole all of Matt and I’s picks. That bastard…#adamImsorry

  9. Billy O'Bryan says:

    I think Doug is a slow and lazy like a sloth, and an incompetent defender. Aidan and Josh we’re dummies to pick him before the 13th round

  10. Cynic says:

    @doc – Your mom is nice to have as a friend.

    @conrad – you should stop trying to get josh to play Bteam.

    @tori – don’t c*ck block josh and Conrad. If josh wants to #suckit then he totally should

    @josh – keep doing what you’re doing. After this season maybe you could teach my dog how to #rollover. I think I could put in a word with Lyle to downgrade your draft stock to mediocre.

    Dang I got hated on pretty hard

    I like Cynic. Don’t be so sensitive.

    Some thoughts as one of the people who knows all the Jax players…

    I watched the draft live. I am glad I am not the only one who was shaking my head as Jeremy Brenner kept not getting drafted. Crazy.

    Then… they picked up Drew in the dang 9th round. I don’t know what information Drew put on his sign up form, but he clearly slow played himself. If you want to get all 4 guys laying out like crazy, stick drew in for Josh and he’ll do nicely. Does everything well, if he weren’t such a gnome he would be even better, but in the 9th round he will be the steal of the draft.

    COnrad’s cardinal actually picked up a quad of Jax folks… Hae, Alex, and Dan got mentioned, but Matt Brennan is also a Jax player. Assuming he shows up and isn’t injured/drunk, he can be a top tier player. Cardinal may have incredible depth with all four Jax players being drafted much later than their abilities deserve.

    That Corey McCall kid is worthless, LuLu Lemon Yoga pants will have a miserable season.

    Anthony Vogt is also useless as a league player and shouldn’t have gone in the 2nd round. Just don’t guard him and heckle him to huck. Works every time. But, that team did get Alicia, so that kind of made it worthwhile to have to put up with anthony.

    Based on those two alone, wherever Forest and Purple are ranked, it is too high.

    Finally, Josh “Fleming” Hyde… the black sheep of Jax Ultimate… actually, maybe of all Ultimate. It’s not that he isn’t a good player, he is, it just seems that all his endeavors are doomed to failure. Probably because of the curse that Jon Cobb cast on him many years ago. Yellow team: Beware the curse of Cobber. It is coming for you.

    Looking forward to it.

    • Cynic says:

      Because I think I know all the Jax people as well and I’m in the mood to yank a few more chains.

      Josh Hyde is the black sheep because he’s all talk, very little walk, especially after that Jacuzzi incident. Great he can make throws, but how do you get the disc in a guys hands who can’t really move? are handoffs allowed in Ultimate? I’ll have to check the 11th edition. Even then, I’d still pick him as a drinking buddy, if I didn’t have to listen to his drunken tirade about how awesome he used to be, that one time, in a game nobody remembers.

      Anthony called me and told me sure, you can heckle him into an ill advised huck from time to time, but at least you don’t have to worry about 3-4 unforced turnovers on your own endzone line from your main handler **cough cough D West**

      To be honest I have nothing negative to say about McCall and Brenner. Two of the nicest guys you could ever know, and they’re even better on the field. Who cares what round they got picked in? If they were both picked first round, you’d be lucky to have them on your team
