NEW YORK—During a press conference this week to discuss his expectations for the upcoming fantasy football season, Brad’s Awesome Team owner Brad Blevins asked fans for patience as his franchise enters rebuilding mode. “We need to be realistic and realistically, we’re still another season away from competing for a playoff spot,” said Blevins, assuring diehard fans that Brad’s Awesome Team will not tank any games this season in an attempt to secure the first overall pick in the 2014 draft. “We’ll never have the resources of a perennial contender like Huge Giant Robots, but we like the pieces we’ve assembled. This is an exciting young roster we’re building around and fans can be confident that 2014 will be our year—and just the beginning.” At press time, Blevins refused to address rumors that his team was shopping all of its veterans to clear cap space.
