Behind the phrase “summer vacation”, there might not be two words that had a greater impact on my childhood. Not sure if that was a completion in our daily sandlot football game? Do over! Someone “accidentally” knocked the Monopoly pieces off the board? Do over! Traded away Cam Newton in a fit of frustration? Do over!
Unfortunately, not too many of us get a do over on that last scenario. Which is part of the reason we bring you the Social (Fantasy) Network. Not so you can have a do over, but so you can air your grievances over screwing up the first time. Think of us as your digital Festivus pole. Which brings us to this week’s S(F)N question: What would you like a do over on this season?

I saw way more of these tweets than I would have expected. My first reaction was to say that it’s not his fault. But then I come back to my mantra that no one asks how…they ask how many. And when it comes to Larry Fitzgerald this season, it hasn’t been very many. Although I do hope he’s had a Good Will Hunting moment at some point this year.

But that one? Yeah, that’s totally your fault. If it makes you feel better, Vick’s not the only Eagle to let people down.

That has to doubly hurt. Not only did you avoid a player from your own team in favor of a rival, but that rival did what rivals do — sink your season. At least you didn’t have any New York Giants.

You guys should meet. I’m sure you’d have some interesting fantasy tales to swap. Speaking of swaps…

That’s pretty bad. But this might be worse.

Ouch. Nothing like getting Internet lagged out of the potential NFL MVP. But that brings us to this week’s final word. This time, it comes from Victor, who reminds us that not all do overs are for the benefit of those on the short end of the stick.
#SocialFF re-do the Aj Green trade for Murray...just to see the look at his face again...best trade I made in the past 3yrs—

I’m going to guess the feeling isn’t mutual.
Any other do overs you wish you had? Hit us up in the comments section. Next week is the fantasy Super Bowl in many leagues, but we’ll still be here letting you sound off on the fantasy experience. Just keep an eye out for the #SocialFF question. Happy Week 15 everybody!
