Magill Report FFL: The Week the Undefeateds Went Down
By Ken Magill
The would-be juggernauts are juggernauts no more.
Last week The Magill Report had three undefeated teams: Movable Ink’s Inkredibles, PL Marketing’s Lakeland Hawks and the eWayDirect Avengers. This week they all went down.
Responsys’s Always in the Inbox was able to earn its way into a three-way tie for first place in Division 2 by beating Movable Ink’s Inkredibles 111.12 to 101.26.
Both teams are in Division 2. Their records are 3-1.
The third part of the Division-2 three-way tie is the eWayDirect Avengers who lost to Living Social’s Illegal Use of Hands 59.18 to 85.76.
Illegal Use of Hands is now in second place in Division 2 with a record of 2-2.
Meanwhile, the TowerData Validators moved itself into a tie for first place in Division 1 with PL Marketing’s Lakeland Hawks by beating the Hawks 130.56 to 99.46.
Both teams are 3-1.
In other news, after an abysmal start to the season, losing three games in a row, FreshAddress’s @men put up a whopping 187.24 points, beating the can’t-catch-a-break NetAtlantic TidalWave, who scored 100.76.
For the second week in a row, NetAtlantic put up a respectable score but happened to be up against the week’s highest-scoring team. The fantasy football gods are, indeed, cruel.
The @men had a bunch of double-digit contributors, but the main one was New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees, who scored 49.85 points.
The @men’s record is 1-3. NetAtlantic’s is 004.
Omeda’s Oh My! Omeda brought its record to 2-2 by winning its second game in a row. Omeda beat e-Dialog’s e-D’s TDs 120.3 to 114.54.
First-year champion e-D’s TDs’ record is 1-3.
The Marketfish Sharks are in first place in Division 3 with a record of 3-1.
The Sharks beat Victor Printing’s (who let a printer in this league?) Browns 157.08 to 76.56.
The Browns’ record is 1-3.
Return Path’s GOLIATHS raised its record to 2-2 by beating Message Systems’ MS Destroyers 110.92 to 83.66.
Message Systems record is 1-3. Return Path is tied for second place in Division 1 with Omeda.
Note to the bottom dwellers: Don’t lose hope. As previously winless FreshAddress and all the previous undefeated teams demonstrated this week, anything can happen. I’ve seen teams’ luck turn for the better and for the worse a lot later in the season than this. However, I will concede if you go 0-6, it ain’t looking too good.
