Magill FFL: Buh Bye to the Wife
By Ken Magill
Thank god the wife isn’t in Division 3. Otherwise, she’d still have a shot at the playoffs and posting a video to YouTube of me getting my head shaved.
Anti-spammer Mickey Chandler’s Spamtacular Bastards beat the wife’s Rivet This! this week 129.56 to 76.42. The loss put the wife’s record at 5-7, which would still leave her in contention in Division 3 where leader NetAtlantic TidalWave has dropped its fourth game in a row.
The TidalWave’s record stands at 6-6. However, everyone else’s record in Division 3 is 4-8.
The wife is in Division 1 where leader TowerData Validators has a record of 9-3 and second place FreshAddress’ The @men have a record of 8-4.
I’ll miss the weekly chiding, but of course, it is a good thing she’s out. For one thing, she doesn’t eat red or processed meat so she’d never appreciate the wonderousness that is the regulation-sized football-shaped summer sausage from Dietrich’s Meats in Krumsville PA that will go to this year’s champion.
It is red and it is processed. Mmmm. Mmmm.
In any case, the TowerData Validators managed to stay one game ahead of FreshAddress by beating PL Marketing’s Orchard Lake Pirates 107.32 to 99.24.
And in an example of how cruel the fantasy football gods can be, last year’s champion e-Dialog’s e-D TDs put up a whopping 163.88 points, the second highest score of the week.
Unfortunately, e-Dialog played the team that scored the highest number of points this week: FreshAddress’ The @men, who scored 171.64.
The loss dropped e-Dialog’s record to 5-7, leaving them in fourth place in Division 2.
Division 2 leader Pontiflex DUMBOs won their fourth straight, beating Zrinity’s Email Lightning 147.94 to 93.28.
Pontiflex is now tied for the league’s best record with TowerData at 9-3. Zrinity’s record is 4-8.
In other news, the never-give-up-never-surrender award this week goes to Return Path’s RP GOLIATHS who won their fourth game in a row by beating Harte-Hanks Heroes 132.82 to 80.9.
After a dismal start to the season, The GOLIATHS’ record is 6-6.
Spam Primavera—run by Adam Mihalik, a marketing analyst for a really big insurance firm I’m not allowed to name—managed to stay in contention in Division 1 by beating the NetAtlantic TidalWave 129.52 to 99.74.
Spam Primavera’s record is 7-5, leaving it tied for third place in Division 1 with Message Systems’ MS Destroyers.
The Destroyers wisely did not start Buffalo Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick—yes, he had a good week this week, but it’s still wise to stay away from him—and opted to go with Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Vince Young who put up 37 fantasy points in the Magill League this week.
As a result, the Destroyers beat Omeda’s Oh My! Omeda 124.4 to 88.1.
If the playoffs were to begin this week, the TowerData Validators would play the NetAtlantic TidalWave and the Pontiflex DUMBOs would be up against FreshAddress’ The @men.
There are two weeks left in the regular season, though, so there may yet be some jostling.
