(Yahoo)   The season is starting and it's time to get your fantasy team in order. I can't decide whether to take Scalia or Roberts as my #1 overall pick, but I've defintely got Ginsburg as my slot Justice, and Thomas? Thomas is already on the waiver wire   (news.yahoo.com) divider line 25

I've dome the research and spoken to my inside sources. The big choice this year is Alito. He'll be the power player this term

Thomas has more value in an auction draft.

I'm worried about his durability.   I expect he'll rip off a few hundred page opinions early in the season but he's really not an every-case justice  and I wouldn;t be suprised to see him on IR with carpal tunnel by week 8

Maybe, but at least he's not turnover prone like Kennedy.

Anyone that doesn't pick Kennedy is a fool and a cad.

This year the competition focuses on National Labor Relations Board v. Noel Canning Corporation.


That might be fun but it will be 5-4 that the president does not have the power to define when congress is in recess, consequences be damned.

Kennedy is the justice to have in the flex position.

I am going for the hail mary playoff scenario:

National debt v 14th ammendment

/not really
// you think the derp is deep now?

You have Sotomayor's bow.
And Kennedy's axe.

Fantasy Judicial is OK, but 9 times out of 10 it's just about who gets lucky on the appellete wire.
 
2013-10-07 03:00:19 PM
so subby has Ginsburg as his slot... The joke here is far too easy.
 
2013-10-07 03:03:25 PM
If there was a way to play Fantasy Congress, that might actually get me interested. The problem with Fantasy Supreme Court is that there aren't enough Justices to field a deep league.

Ginsburg may be a slot, but "Elena Kagan" is an anagram for "An anal geek".

/Giggity.

Just wait until you hear about the "Fed Challenge" where high school kids compete in teams to see who can do the best job of impersonating the federal reserver.
 
2013-10-07 03:10:57 PM
Can't you just say Scalia will be on the wrong side of every case?
 
2013-10-07 03:11:55 PM
Roberts has a lot of power late.

Actually I am going to walk away from this prediction.  Now it is.  5-4 that the president does not have the power to define when congress is in recess but through some hand waving and reading tea leaves the affected appointments and their decissions are left in place.

John Paul Stevens is my sleeper pick.

but you have to send the checks to his wife labeled consulting fees, wink wink.

Yeah, but he's got the smack talk and in-field chatter down!

I'm pretty sure Kagan had to recuse herself from this one.  So it will most likely be a 5-3.  And even if Roberts sides with the liberals in a 4-4, I think the lower courts ruling stands.

I'm still giggling at "slot justice"

He'll start off small this season with a couple of lowly concurring pieces but give him an open Res Judicata opinion and he'll crank the points up like nothing.

He's gold for this season

I would send Thomas down to family court and see if you can buff his numbers a bit on some smaller stakes. Then draft a nice young liberal and drop them on the bench for a couple of seasons.
