    Authorities have found the meticulously groomed corpse of Motown Pride amid the drafts of his opus: How to Utterly Destroy your friends and enemies in fantasy basketball.

    "This is a sad day for advanced league Fantasy basketball," said the police spokesperson, "Motown was the veritable voice of that league."
    The remaining members of advanced league issued a resounding "No Comment" regarding the death. "we like to keep to ourselves," said one GM who spoke anonimously.

    "Who ever killed motown pride either wanted to take his pristine Air Force Ones OR just had no pride in motown and wanted to send a message."


    Swift justice! blah blah blah!!!!

    Oh yeah, clue letter A.

    My first buddy ever in the forum. Our expert fantasy basketball guru and commissioner. Dead.:rip:

    OK, Murderer. This time you've gone to far. Killing TFD:dancingparty:and Maverick :confused: are one thing...BUT killing MO? :swear2:



    Mark my words. You will pay dearly for this one.:cop:

    no evidence to present here of course, so "down boys" in the lynch mob...

    but it's weird isn't it that Tater was posting yesterday with a sign that he expected the murderer to strike.... coincidence? superb intuition? could be... but then... how'd you know Darth? just a feeling?

    I'll wait for the more persistent sleuths in the bunch to begin to comb posts and see what they turn up before i jump on any bandwagon.....

    In case you guys were wondering.

    TuPac, Biggie and Elvis are not still alive.

    God doesn't look like George Burns.

    Not to tamper with the game but the murders this game are generally on schedule to be 3 days after the lynching.

    If evidence were required, it wouldn't be a lynch mob, it would be a court of law. :rolleyes: Looks like you slept through Vigilantism 101, professor.

    Let the unfounded accusations begin!

    Prof,

    I honestly don't understand why people think it is so unusual that I knew there would be another killing last night:

    (1) The rules state the killer MUST kill within three days after a hanging. Linwood hanged on September 8th. Therefore, if one killer was still alive he had no choice but to kill again last night (September 11th) at the latest.

    He will kill again September 15th at the very latest since someone will be hanged tonight (Sept 12th). The killer seems to be waiting as long as possible.

    It only makes sense. Why? Because he wants as many people to post as possible during the interim. Low did the same thing, if I recall.

    To me it's just logic. The only way the killer could not kill last night is if Slippy didn't post the death for some reason or if the killer broke the rules. I know Slippy well enough to figure he would impose some kind of penalty on the killer(s) if they broke the rules. Slippy don't play dat. LOL.

    Also, I figured there WOULD be another killing because I believed and still believe we missed on Dlev. I think Linwood was a killer, but I thought his accomplice was still around based on what transpired over the last few days.

    If I were really the killer do you think I'd be running around telling people "MURDER WILL HAPPEN TONIGHT AT "X" PM"????

    Are we trying to catch "a" murderer with this poll or the one who specifically killed Motown?

    I just noticed that Darth hasn't been posting much outside of this thread, making him unlikely to be the murderer in this case, but possibly the murderer in previous instances.

    Here is the evidence I've gathered.

    Remember, it only takes one post to kill:

    9-9-06 "Shock win it all thread". 9-9-06 is the first day within the three day window period Sept 9 - Sept 11) where he can murder. (Easier to bury an older post).

    Roscoe posted two words that could knock someone (Motown) off:

    Championship =generic basketball word.

    Laimbeer =Piston word.

    L, A, E, are the clues we have. All fit in Laimbeer.


    Guys, please take my background and training into account before assuming that because I understand the rules I must be guilty. I was trained to understand rules backwards and forwards. I can't help it. I have to pay attention to even the most minor details. That's why I understand the rules. I don't understand a single word in that "dreamweaver" thread, but I do understand this stuff.

    Nice try Darth. If I wasn't quoting Laimbeer in almost real time from the game 5 post game press conference. And as far as burying a post, I'm not the damn killer (for the 1 millionth time).

    You've killed Dlev and linwood. And there is still a murderer (or two) at large.

    Your credibility as an investigator is shot. How many innocent people have to hang, falsely accused by YOU with each murder?

    You're the best killer this game could have. You take a victim, and then you hang another one each time for a crime they didn't commit.

    Now you want to put on your cape and monocle to accuse me? HA! I laugh in your general direction.

    Roscoe,

    Well, I know I didn't do it. If you are innocent...then who did it?

    You didn't kill Motown or you aren't a murderer?

    I wonder if there's cable up here? My wireless connection for internet access has some remarkable range, huh?

    I'm not a murderer.


    I'm also not hell bent on trying to lynch you if you are innocent. In fact, I don't want to.

    But SOMEBODY had to kill him. There must be some evidence within the last 3 days of who did it. All I've been able to dig up is your stuff, although I did just find something else on a different person.

    Slippy...can the murder words be in the actual title thread ? So in other words, the word isn't in the post but rather in the heading?

    Motown, I have seen your team in the Afterlife Fantasy Basketball league. '69 Kareem Abdul Jabar. '89 Michael Jordan. '89 Joe Dumars. '86 Larry Bird. Great drafting man.

    does anybody feel they have a decent idea of what prime candidates for "clue words" might be at this point?

    It can't be Warthog or majestik. Neither has posted in the last 3 days.

    I have another prime suspect. It's not them. I'm getting gun shy though. When I come up with evidence...I get blamed. :violin:
