Magill FFL: The Unfairness Abounds
By Ken Magill
This week we have a pair of examples of how unfair the fantasy football gods can be.
Living Social’s Illegal Use of Hands put up a whopping 142.14 points this week, the second-highest score in the league.
Oh, but wait. Illegal Use of Hands went up against Omeda’s Oh My! Omeda who scored 164.6, the highest score this week.
As a result, Illegal Use of Hands lost a heartbreaker. Fortunately, for them, though, their current record, 3-3, is good enough to leave them tied for first place in Division 3 with the Marketfish Sharks.
In the second example of unfairness, PL Marketing’s Lakeland Hawks is in sole possession of first place in Division 1 after beating Victor Printing’s (who the hell let a printer in this league?) Browns 86.16 to 60.12.
The Hawks’ score was the league’s third lowest this week. But hey. A win’s a win, right guys?
The Hawks’ record is 5-1. The Browns’ is 1-5.
Meanwhile FreshAddress’s @men continued salvaging what began as a dismal season by winning their third game in a row, bringing their record to 3-3.
The @men beat Message Systems’ MS Destroyers 108.38 to 99.08.
The @men are in second last place in Division 2 or two games out of first place in Division 2, depending on how you want to look at it.
The leader in Division 2 is Movable Ink’s Inkredibles, who beat the Marketfish Sharks 113.12 to 106.72.
The Inkredibles’ record is 5-1.
Return Path’s GOLIATHS are finally living up to their name and have also salvaged what began as a not-so-great season. The GOLAITHS won their third straight his week, beating the eWayDirect Avengers 133.38 to 68.78.
Return Path’s record is 4-2. They are tied for second place in Division 1 with the Towerdata Validators.
The Validators beat the can’t-catch-a-break NetAtlantic TidalWave 133.92 to 92.44.
NetAtlantic is 0-6.
e-Dialog’s e-D’s TDs recorded a much-needed win, beating Responsys’s Always in the Inbox 110.64 to 104.66.
e-Dialog’s record is 2-4.
Responsys’s record is 4-2.
Currently 10 of the 14 teams in this year’s league are either in first place in their divisions or at most, two games out. This season is still very much up for grabs.
