Magill League Playoff Spots Locked Up
By Ken Magill
Well, next week is pretty much meaningless.
All four playoff spots in the Magill Report Fantasy Football League have been locked up. The only thing left to be decided is who plays who in the first round.
Despite a two-game losing streak, The TowerData Techies currently hold the top slot in Division 1 with a 9-4 record. However, also in Division 1, The Harte-Hanks Heroes have a 9-4 record as the result of a four-game winning streak.
If Harte-Hanks wins next week and The TowerData Techies lose, they would swap spots and Harte-Hanks would go into the playoffs as a division leader and TowerData would go in as a wild card.
The wild card will play The Return Path Rage, which leads Division 3 with a league-leading 12-1 record and the Division 1 leader will play e-Dialog’s e-D’s TDs, which has a record of 9-4.
All four teams have been known to score well into the hundreds.
So while Return Path with its juggernaut-like season would seem to be a favorite, it is in no way a shoo-in for the championship and the much-coveted football-shaped sausage from Dietrich’s Meats in Krumsville, PA.
Meanwhile, Strongmail’s Orange Crush scored a league-leading 141.98 points this week, beating the TowerData Techies who scored 89.5.
PL Marketing’s Orchard Lake Warrior beat The Pontiflex DUMBOS 133.28 to 108.74.
Harte-Hanks Heroes beat Permission Data 85.28 to 73.14. Return Path beat The Yesmail Raiders 110.10 to 93.64.
e-D’s TDs beat The ArcaMax Blasters 133.72 to 51.64. And the Spamtacular Bastards beat Message Systems MS Destroyers 96.62 to 84.72.
