NBFL Season XXXII Week 5

Welcome to week 5! I hope all our coaches are feeling as refreshed and reinvigorated as I am after a relaxing week off! I take it last week’s DoTW was very normal and in no way unhinged? Very good. Now forward with the news! The big takeaway is that we had the kindest, gentlest week of the season, with 10 fewer SI/RIP than our weekly average. Seems like those hitters are getting a bit worn down from all the carnage!

Dead of the Week

''Manservant'' Pete Dreamer: Chic’A’Ghost thrall; Dirty Player
Griffin Staban: Trans-Fat Crisco ogre; Guard, Block, Stand Firm, Grab
Jeremiah Brinn: Trans-Fat Crisco lineman; no skills
Rosy [IVCC]: Brew More runner; +MA, +MA, Block, Tackle, Side Step
Oats [CU]: Detroit chosen blocker; Block, Dodge, Break Tackle, Guard

Death of the Week: Image

A representative from Brew More also prepared the following statement for their fallen runner:

We wur o' th' opinion trans-fats coaching warkers wis unfit tae kip wi' swine, bit efter that ower remarkable display o' coaching 'n' execution - pardon th' pun - we noo ur o' th' opinion that maist o' thair gang 'n' coaching warkers ur worthy o' thair barn yaird kip fellows

Translation:

We were of the opinion Trans-Fats coaching staff was unfit to sleep with swine, but after that rather remarkable display of coaching and execution - pardon the pun - we now are of the opinion that most of their team and coaching staff are worthy of their barnyard bedmates.

Maimed of the Week

Raymond BAMMMM Lewis: Baltimore khorngor (-ST); Block
Mike "Shieelds" Degory [UF]: Deadlanta flesh golem (-ST); Block, Guard
Edgar Allan Poe: Baltimore lineman (-AG); Block
Juan "Speedy" Gonzalez [SMU]: Detroit beastman (-AV); +ST, Block, Sure Hands, Sure Feet, Side Step, Dodge
Borel Gwydion: Pittsburgh lineman (-PA); Dirty Player, Sneaky Git

Total NI this week: 13
Total MNG this week: 13
Total stat busts this week: 5
Total deaths this week: 6
Total SI/RIP: 37

NBFL Season XXXII Week 6

Now this is a satisfying return to form! 10 deaths marks a high point for the season, the first time we’ve managed to break into double-digits. As the saying goes, “Blind ref, all pows, can’t lose,” and it seems like the framed cross-stitches of that very phrase that were handed out to all players last year by NBFL management as a year-end bonus have finally started to pay dividends, especially when considering how likely it is that players have only now, in week 6, been able to puzzle their way through all 6 words.

Dead of the Week

Randy Mansmushen #66 (G): Brew More longbeard; Mighty Blow, Guard, Stand Firm
Punka Nacho: Los Angeles lineman; Wrestle, Tackle
Oscar Styrix [TEX]: HEnnessey blitzer; Mighty Blow, Frenzy, Juggernaut, Dodge
overly familiar: Vampa Bay thrall; Wrestle, Frenzy
Wormouth: Keen Play pestigor; Block, Juggernaut
Cody Latimer: Witchington lineman; Block, Dodge, Guard
Carlos "Predation" Barraza [PSU]: Witchington lineman; Wrestle, Dodge, Guard
Andjort "VOIP" Cisco: Jakesonville lineman; no skills
Lisa Abrams: Baltimore marauder lineman; Dirty Player
''Butler'' Swiss Jonah: Chic’A’Ghost thrall; Wrestle
''Manservant'' Pete Dreamer: Chic’A’Ghost thrall; Dirty Player

Death of the Week: This was the week of dead workhorse players: blodge guard elf linemen, MB/G/SF dwarf longbeards, Dirty Player thralls. While a lot of useful players were lost, only one really stands out as extra special: HEnnessey’s Oscar Styrix. Mighty Blow on a high elf blitzer isn’t exactly rare, but this one had a bit more pizzazz, with both Juggernaut and Frenzy to round out his skillset. The team will certainly miss Oscar the next time they set up for a one-turn TD or when an opponent tries out a sideline cage. For some reason Chet has written here in the margins “Skryllex rulez!” though it’s not clear if he has misspelled the name of the player or is referencing something else entirely.

Maimed of the Week

Dar'el Rivets #24 (CB): Brew More blitzer (-ST); no skills
''Snazzy'' White: Chic’A’Ghost vampire thrower (-ST); Block, Dodge
Jayceon Malley: Kansas City catcher (-AG); Sneaky Git, Dirty Player
Damian Winius: Kansas City lineman (-MA); Wrestle
Robot Santa Claus: New New Orleans ogre (-AV); Block, Guard, Stand Firm
Earl da Pearl: HEnnessey lineman (-AV); no skills

Total NI this week: 18
Total MNG this week: 19
Total stat busts this week: 6
Total deaths this week: 10

NBFL Season XXXII Week 7

There was a midseason wrap-up show tonight; if you missed it you should go check it out. Did you notice the lack of an exclamation mark? Are you asking yourself why are we not more enthused over here at DOTW? Yes, I am aware that our esteemed publication received a nice shout-out. And honestly we were extremely excited at the start of the cast when ex-con said he could talk about vampires for the entire hour. But then he didn’t talk about vampires for the entire hour! So we are giving the cast a very generous 3/5 stars, needs more vampires. Now: on to the dead!

Dead of the Week

Runolf Thorvidsson [WAS]: Szeattle blitzer; Dodge, +AV, Catch, Side Step, Guard, Defensive
Kareem Hunt [KCT]: Jakesonville storm vermin; Mighty Blow, Guard, Side Step, Tackle, Frenzy
Slow and Horrible: New New Orleans lineman; Wrestle
Jack "Adderrlyy" Skittles: Deadlanta wraith; Guard, Tackle, Mighty Blow
Ed Norton: Baltimore lineman; Dirty Player
Nash Jensen: Carolina bloater; no skills
Devil Coleman [UI]: Detroit beastman; Block, Dodge, Tackle, Side Step, Mighty Blow
Joe Goesboom: Los Angeles lineman; Dirty Player
Braxton Baxter: Trans-Fat Crisco ogre; no skills
Doug Williams II: Witchington lineman; Block, Dodge
Maat 'Carpal' Elmahdy: No-Skincinnati blitzer; Guard, Mighty Blow, Tackle

Death of the Week:
Image
Sure, there were other good players who died. But none whose deaths were as funny, satisfying, and consequential to their team as Runolf Thorvidsson. So we bid you adieu. May your soul be haunted by Buffalo forever!


Maimed of the Week

Raymond BAMMMM Lewis: Baltimore khorngor (-ST); no skills
Dawson Mudon: Carolina rotter (-ST); Guard, Stand Firm
Terry Cummings [DPU]: Szeattle blitzer (-MA); Dodge, Sprint, Side Step, Sure Feet, +AG, Kick

NBFL Season XXXII Week 8

It was the best of weeks, it was the worst of weeks.

Okay, it was mostly just the best of weeks: we had at least 3 players killed who I can GUARANTEE had their own InstaSlann accounts chock-full of dubious product endorsements and problematic stances (I say “at least” because we all know Hanford Dix was involved in the dark web somehow so he probably posted under a hacked account). The part where it was the worst of weeks comes from making our staff choose between three killed legends, two of which were legendary not just for their skills, but for the mark they’ve left on the league over the seasons. Woe is us!

Dead of the Week

Fred Taylor [FU]: Trans-Fat Crisco blitzer; Tackle, +ST, Pro, Mighty Blow, Juggernaut, Frenzy
Shy Tuttle: Carolina rotter; Wrestle
Sam Ball: Indianapolis blocker; no skills
Benjas Darrama [UNAM]: New York blitzer; Mighty Blow, Block, Tackle, +AG, Dodge, Grab
Garrett Hughesss [CAL]: Cleaved Land chosen blocker; Dodge, Block, Guard, Mighty Blow, Claws, Stand Firm
Hanford Dix: Cleaved Land chaos troll; Guard

Death of the Week: 3-Way Showdown Special: Enter the Trianglegon

In this corner: the corpse of defending superbowl champion BenJAAAAAAS DarRAma!, frog blitzer with a heart of steel! New Yorkers everywhere fall to sleep beneath posters of this legend, who did it all with grace and style: lending assists in cages, knocking out teeth, and even scoring TDs! While Benjas was showing his age, picking up -MA recently, he was still an integral piece of the frog puzzle pie.

In corner #2: the corpse of Garret HughESSS! Former team captain and ring-bearer for Cleaved Land, this chosen blocker holds a Triple X against Carolina and survived in the NBFL for a staggering 121 games! Garret, too, had picked up a few injuries over the years, ending his run with both -AG and -AV, but made a name for himself even on a team stacked with legendary players.

In corner #3: the corpse of Fred TAYlor! The anchor of Trans-Fat Crisco’s defense, Fred was truly a beast on the pitch and the only legend to die this week without any other battle scars holding him back. Truly, he was cut down in his prime, something SINN readers love to see!

So who is DEATH OF THE WEEK? After tossing the three corpses at each other for a solid 45 minutes, the judges have declared a winner! While Garret has been around the longest, he has fallen off in recent years due to injuries and has been overshadowed by his more famous teammates. And Fred, while showing incredible promise, just didn’t have a chance to make his name reverberate across the league before perishing. Which leaves us with our winner: BENJAS DARRAMA!

Maimed of the Week

WCF's Shambling Corpse: Detroit beastman (-ST); Guard, Block, Stand Firm
Isaiah Tethran: Trans-Fat Crisco lineman (-ST); Wrestle, Pro, Strip Ball, Tackle
Shaq Mason: Orcston lineman (-MA); Dirty Player

Welcome back to.. the Playoff Picture!

Image

Our reports continue to monitor the games, the teams, the matches, and the dea - oh wait that's the other guy.

We look at scores! WHY WERE THERE SO MANY DRAWS THIS WEEK, I HATE IT

This week, we consider teams within 2 wins and a draw of a wildcard spot!

NFC still has 12 teams
East: New York - 48
South: New New Orleans - 47
West: Szeattle - 47
North: Chic'A'Ghost - 45 (has tiebreaker over Manglesota)

Manglesota - 45
Vampa Bay - 43
Deadtlanta - 40
Los Angeles - 40

Keen Play - 36
Witchington - 34
Dallas - 29
Arizona - 24

NFC, if anything, has gotten even closer together at the top, with only 7 points between #8 and #1 (8 points after the last week 10 game).

AFC has 15 teams, because they refuse to knock anyone out.
West: Las Fangas - 55
South: Orcston - 48
East: New Ziggland - 44
North: No-Skincinnati - 40

Jakesonville - 41
HEnnessy - 40
Cleaved Land - 37
Denver - 37

Buffalo - 36
Tijuana - 36
Wargami - 34
Pittsburgh - 34
Brew More - 27
Baltimore - 24
Kansas City - 20

AFC might be sending 3 teams from the South if they can hold on to their points; can the West stop them?

NBFL Season XXXII Week 9

Staff have been preoccupied with “family events” and “holidays”, so you’re getting a double dose of DOTW… just a tiny bit late. And, sadly, the cost of that is the loss of some witty preamble banter; it’s just the price we all pay for letting staff have time off!

Dead of the Week

D. Allen [FAY]: HEnnessey blitzer; +ST, Mighty Blow, Guard, Tackle, Side Step
Yellow Lefe'ver: Denver gutter runner; Wrestle, Tackle
Milo Darkkon: Kansas City lineman; Wrestle
Coilette Kleft: New New Orleans lineman; Wrestle, Tackle
R. Clavicle: No-Skincinnati Skellington; Wrestle, Pro, Dirty Player
Ian Vilefire: Pittsburgh journeyman; no skills

Death of the Week: Wow, thanks for the meatball, especially compared to the mental contortions required for week 8! D. Allen, another exemplary Fayetteville grad, is our Death of the Week. He was cut down in a match against Denver, leaving HEnnessey with big shoes to fill in the blitzer corps. Apparently the wake was such a rager that no one showed up for practice for an entire week afterward, including coaching staff, referees, grounds crew, and announcers.

Maimed of the Week

Lauret Magveil [UCSD]: Jakesonville blitzer (-AG); Tackle, Mighty Blow, Dodge, Guard, Side Step
''Manservant'' Jordan Stricken: Chic’A’Ghost thrall (-AV); no skills
Kevin "Party" Hardy: Jakesonville blitzer (-AV); Tentacles
Matt Peart: New York lineman (-AV); Wrestle
''Attendant'' Armand Kinder: Chic’A’Ghost thrall (-AV); Wrestle

Total NI this week: 18
Total MNG this week: 22
Total stat busts this week: 6
Total deaths this week: 6
Total SI/RIP: 52

NBFL Season XXXII Week 10

Two weeks done in one night! And everyone said we were “slow”. Here at SINN we call it “savoring one’s dinner”.

Dead of the Week

Dawson Mudon: Carolina rotter; Guard, Stand Firm
Dak Zagrum: Arizona chorf; Guard, Mighty Blow
Doug Flutie: Buffalo runner; Pass, On the Ball, Cloud Burster
Arnaud Weck [OTT]: No-Skincinnati tomb guardian; Block, Guard, Stand Firm
Wasted WR Draft Pick: Detroit beastman; no skills
Marte Mapu: New Ziggland hobgoblin; Dirty Player, Block

Death of the Week: Huh. A bit picked over this week. Only two players with 3+ skills? We tried very hard to ignore No-Skincinnati due to lingering resentment after last year’s playoff heartbreak, but Doug Flutie had Cloud Burster, an automatic disqualification, and Carolina’s rotter had two secondary skills but no Block. With a heavy sigh we award DOTW to Arnaud Weck, tomb guardian. Keep up the excellent work! May we see all of No-Skincinnati’s dead desiccated and scattered by season’s close!

Maimed of the Week

Aidan Blissia: Kansas City lineman (-AG); no skills
Jack Meathook: Denver lineman (-AG); Dirty Player, Wrestle, Guard
Kim Nekroman [BUF]: Arizona bull centaur (-MA); Block, Guard, Tackle, Mighty Blow, +ST, Break Tackle
700k at the Draft: Detroit beastman (-MA); no skills
Kriss Proctor VII [Navy]: Denver thrower (-AV); +AG, +ST, Block, Dauntless, Dodge
Jake the Snake Hater: Denver lineman (-AV); no skills
Bruce Smith: Buffalo lineman (-AV); no skills
Nelson Agholor: New Ziggland hobgoblin (-AV); Sneaky Git, Dirty Player
Imri Qaiyum: Pittsburgh thrower (-PA); Block, Dodge
Calvin "Megabeast" Johnson: Detroit beastman (-PA); Block, Claws, Mighty Blow

Total NI this week: 19

Welcome back to.. the Playoff Picture!

Image

For our newer viewers, the NBFL is a very high TV league! with the highest teams close to 3000k TV, we've had games with over 1 million in inducements. The average team starts around 2500k tv, but by this point in the season, we're down to a mere 2100k tv. Attrition is real folks! ATTRITION IS REAL

The other thing about this league is that draws are frowned on. And by that I mean, I HATES THEM I HATES THEM WHY WOULD THEY LEAVE THEM IN THEIR POCKETSES

Week 11 is almost over! We consider teams within 2 wins of a wildcard spot!

NFC has 10 teams
West: Szeattle (W) - 54
North: Chic'A'Ghost (N) - 52
East: New York (E) - 51
South: New New Orleans (S) - 50

Manglesota (N) - 52 (lost H2H against Chic'A'Ghost)
Los Angeles (W) - 47
Vampa Bay (S) - 46

Keen Play (N) - 43
Deadtlanta (S) - 40
Witchington (E) - 37

NFC continues to have an incredibly close contest for the bye, and still no one has guaranteed a playoff spot or a division title.

AFC has 14 teams! They really need to stop giving all the points to Las Fangas and ignoring everyone else!
West: Las Fangas (W) - 58
South: Orcston (S) - 48
East: New Ziggland (E) - 47
North: Cleaved Land (N) - 44

HEnnessy (S) - 47
Denver (W) - 44
Jakesonville (S) - 44

No-Skincinnati (N) - 43
Tijuana (W) - 43
Wargami (E) - 37
Buffalo (E) - 36
Pittsburgh (N) - 34
Baltimore (N) - 31
Brew More (E) - 30

As mentioned elsewhere, a single game could drop No-Skincinnati from the lead of their division, to outside the wildcards entirely! And the South continues to look like they are going to hold 3 playoff spots. Also, you guessed it, no guaranteed playoff spot or division titles yet!

NBFL Season XXXII Week 11

At first blush this week’s dead looks like, as the youth of today say, a “full inbox”. 10 dead players is tied for the second highest single-week total, barely behind week seven’s 11 killed. Four of the dead are draft picks! But what you put forth in quantity this week, dear coaches, was sadly lacking in quality: for the second week in a row we only had two dead players with 3+ skills. Perhaps we’ve already killed off so many good ’uns that teams are just going through the motions, content to kill off rookies and second-stringers. Well we here at SINN say: don’t settle for mediocrity! Find yourself some glory in these twilight games of the season! We expect better things in week 12. And if not we’re going to boycott and give DOTW to, like, a thrall or something.

Dead of the Week

Munchak Attack: HEnnessey lineman; Block
Brian Jortmas Jr: Jakesonville blitzer; no skills
Cavinde Teadd: Szeattle blitzer; no skills
Eston 'Slick 'n Sly' Clayton: Deadlanta wraith; no skills
Kevin Truewing: Wargami lineman; no skills
Ben Rodriguez: New New Orleans hobbit; no skills
Pastis Ricard [PITT]: Pittsburgh lineman; Guard, Stand Firm, Dirty Player
Nasty T Eeth [UoT]: Pittsburgh catcher; Wrestle, Tackle, Dodge
Deadvil Mims [PHI]: Vampa Bay thrower; Block, Dodge, Guard
Chase Garnham [VAMP]: Brew More longbeard; Guard

Death of the Week: Well then. We almost gave our prestigious plaque to Pittsburgh just because they had two losses this week, but then we noticed something horrid: Vampa Bay lost a vampire thrower! Ghastly news, just ghastly. So DOTW goes to Deadvil Mims, former friend and mentor to many a SINN subscriber.

Maimed of the Week

Quazzel White [TCU]: Kansas City lineman (-AG); Dirty Player, Wrestle
CJ Stroud: Orcston thrower (-AV); On the Ball, Accurate
Josie Ret: Arizona hobgoblin (-PA); no skills

Total NI this week: 17
Total MNG this week: 21
Total stat busts this week: 3 (!!!!)
Total deaths this week: 10
Total SI/RIP: 51

For our newer viewers, the NBFL is a very high TV league! with the highest teams close to 3000k TV, we've had games with over 1 million in inducements. The average team starts around 2500k tv, but by this point in the 14 game season, we're down to a mere 2100k tv.

The other thing about this league is that draws ... ahem.. sorry? NO! I won't say that! I refuse! I.. lets just move on to the other part, and not discuss how many FRIKKIN DRAWS HAPPENED THIS WEEK

Week 12 is well, not really almost over, but its Tuesday, so here we go! We'll look at teams within 1 win and 1 draw.

NFC has 9 teams
West: Szeattle (W) - 61 - playoff spot week 12
East: New York (E) - 58 - division title week 12 (won H2H vs Witchington), playoff spot week 12
South: New New Orleans (S) - 57
North: Chic'A'Ghost (N) - 55

Manglesota (N) - 55 (lost H2H against Chic'A'Ghost)
Los Angeles (W) - 54
Keen Play (N) - 50

Vampa Bay (S) - 46
Deadtlanta (S) - 43

NFC is finally spreading out a little, and we have one division wrapped up! Plus, yes, we also used to have 10. More last minute contenders refusing to go without a fight!

AFC has 13 teams! But why in the name of the almighty Skaven are THEY ALL ON FOURTY FOUR POINTS
West: Las Fangas (W) - 65 - division title week 12, playoff spot week 12
South: Orcston (S) - 55
East: New Ziggland (E) - 54
North: No-Skincinnati (N) - 50

Tijuana (W) - 50
HEnnessy (S) - 47
Jakesonville (S) - 44
Cleaved Land (N) - 44
Denver (W) - 44
Wargami (E) - 44

Brew More (E) - 37
Buffalo (E) - 36
Pittsburgh (N) - 34

No-Skincinnati grabbed the lead of their division again, so now it's Cleaved Land that's at risk! The South no longer looks like they are going to hold 3 playoff spots, because instead they're just sharing 6th place with the WHOLE CONFERENCE.

Yes, yes they were at 12. But someone just couldn't let go!

By popular demand, we will investigate.. what needs to happen for people to make the playoffs??

But we'll start with division titles for today.

(This post will be editted several times)

NFCN: Of the 3 contenders, Manglesota plays Keen Play.
- If Manglesota beats Keen Play, Keen Play cannot win the title.
Relevant Games: Manglesota Lyc'ns vs Keen Play Hackers, Manglesota Lyc'ns vs Detroit Riots [NBFL], Keen Play Hackers vs Illadelph Sunshine, Chic'A'Ghost Bats vs Witchington Commies, Chic'A'Ghost Bats vs New York Kroaks

- If Chic'A'Ghost wins twice, they win the title. (They have H2H over Manglesota)
- If Chic'A'Ghost doesn't win out, and Manglesota wins out, Manglesota gets the title.
- If Manglesota doesn't win both, and Chic'A'Ghost wins and ties, Chic'A'Ghost gets the title.
- If Chic'A'Ghost doesn't get a win and a draw, and Manglesota does, Manglesota gets the title.
- If both Chic'A'Ghost and Manglesota both fail to get 2 wins or a win and a draw, and Keen Play wins both, Keen Play gets the title.
This keeps going. Gah. Stop it!

NFCS:
- Deadtlanta cannot get the title. (New New Orleans has the H2H over them)
Relevant games: Vampa Bay Familiars vs Carolina Pantzers (Vampa Bay win), Vampa Bay vs Trans-Fat Crisco Porky Diners, New New Orleans Santas vs Trans-Fat Crisco Porky Diners, New New Orleans Santas vs Carolina Pantzers

- If Vampa Bay doesn't win their last game, they cannot get the title.
- New New Orleans gets in if they get at least one win.
- If New New Orleans loses both and Vampa Bay wins out, Vampa Bay gets the title.
- If New New Orleans only gets a tie and a loss, and Vampa Bay wins out, then they tie on points. They also tie on H2H. New New Orleans would either have 2/4/0 division and beat Vampa Bay 2/3/1 for the title, or they would have 2/3/1 division to match Vampa Bay, and it would go to conference.New New Orleans would have 4/5/1 on conference against Vampa Bay 4/4/2, so New New Orleans will get the title. So as long as New New Orleans doesn't lose both or Vampa Bay doesn't win both, they get the title.

NFCW:
Edit: My playoff spot does not mean division title. We need to be in here too.
Szeattle plays Los Angeles.
- If Los Angeles doesn't beat Szeattle, Szeattle has H2H, so Szeattle gets the title
Relevant Games: Szeattle Scimitars vs Los Angeles Glams, Szeattle Scimitars vs Arizona Redbulls, Los Angeles Glams vs Deadtlanta Howlcons

- If Szeattle's second game is a loss, and Los Angeles' second game is a loss, they tie on H2H. Los Angeles has division and gets the title
- If Szeattle's second game is a loss, and Los Angeles' second game is a win or draw, Los Angeles gets the title
- If Szeattle's second game is a draw, and Los Angeles' second game is a loss, Szeattle gets the title
- if Szeattle's second game is a draw, and Los Angeles' second game is a draw or win, Los Angeles gets the title
- if Szeattle's second game is a win, and Los Angeles' second game is a loss or draw, Szeattle gets the title
- if Szeattle's second game is a win, and Los Angeles' second game is a win, Los Angeles gets the title

AFCE: Whew, this one is easier; if New Ziggland doesn't lose to Wargami, they get the title. Definitely no spoilers for week 13 here! But I'm also not bothering with the other permutations..

A few week 13 games have been played! We'll pretend that this will reduce the amount of work I'm about to attempt, and start discussing.. who can get into the playoffs??

We know that Chic'A'Ghost, New New Orleans, New York, Szeattle, Las Fangas, Orcston, and New Ziggland are in.

That leaves 3 more in NFC, and 4 more spots in AFC.

We're going to start from the bottom up! This post will be edited.. once or twice in the coming hours.

In the NFC, we have 5 teams competing for the 3 spots:

55 Manglesota Lyc'ns (2 games left - Keen Play, Detroit)
54 Los Angeles Glams (2 games left - Szeattle, Deadtlanta)
53 Vampa Bay Familiars (1 game left - Trans-Fat Crisco)
50 Keen Play Hackers (2 games left - Manglesota, Illadelph)
50 Deadtlanta Howlcons (1 game left - Los Angeles)

Manglesota, Los Angeles, and Keen Play could all still win their divisional titles. This was discussed in the previous post, and I won't redo that work. Instead this will focus purely on points.

- If Deadtlanta ties, and Vampa Bay loses, and Keen Play loses both, Deadtlanta (they have Conference record over Vampa Bay) is in. (Deadtlanta loses on tiebreakers to Keen Play)

- If Deadtlanta wins, and Keen Play doesn't win either game and Los Angeles doesn't beat Szeattle, Deadtlanta is in. (Deadtlanta wins on tiebreakers against Los Angeles)
- If Deadtlanta wins, and Keen Play doesn't win either game and Vampa Bay doesn't win, Deadtlanta is in.
- If Deadtlanta wins, and Manglesota loses both games and Los Angeles doesn't beat Szeattle, Deadtlanta is in.
- If Deadtlanta wins, and Manglesota loses both games and Vampa Bay doesn't win, Deadtlanta is in.
- If Deadtlanta wins, and Los Angeles doesn't beat Szeattle and Vampa Bay doesn't win, Deadtlanta is in.

Otherwise Deadtlanta is out.

- If Vampa Bay loses, and Keen Play loses both games and Deadtlanta lose, Vampa Bay is in. (Vampa Bay loses on tiebreakers against both teams)

- If Vampa Bay ties, and Keen Play doesn't draw twice or win at least once and Deadtlanta doesn't win, Vampa Bay is in.
- If Vampa Bay ties, and Keen Play doesn't draw twice or win at least once and Los Angeles loses both, Vampa Bay is in.
- If Vampa Bay ties, and Manglesota loses both and Deadtlanta doesn't win, Vampa Bay is in.
- If Vampa Bay ties, and Manglesota loses both and Los Angeles loses both, Vampa Bay is in.

- If Vampa Bay wins, and Keen Play loses at least one or draws twice, Vampa Bay is in.
- If Vampa Bay wins, and Manglesota either loses both or loses one and draws one, Vampa Bay is in.
- If Vampa Bay wins, and Los Angeles either loses both or loses one and draws one (Vampa Bay loses on tiebreakers against Los Angeles), Vampa Bay is in.

Otherwise Vampa Bay is out.

- If Manglesota wins at least one game, or draws two games, Manglesota is in.

- If Manglesota draws Keen Play and loses to Detroit, and Keen Play doesn't beat Illadelph, Manglesota is in.
- If Manglesota draws one and loses one, and Vampa Bay doesn't win, Manglesota is in.
- If Manglesota draws one and loses one, and Keen Play doesn't win a game or loses at least one game, Manglesota is in.
- If Manglesota draws one and loses one, and Los Angeles doesn't win a game and doesn't draw both games, Manglesota is in.

- If Manglesota loses both, and Deadtlanta doesn't beat Los Angeles and Vampa Bay loses to Trans-Fat Crisco, Manglesota is in.
- If Manglesota loses both, and Los Angeles loses both and Vampa Bay loses to Trans-Fat Crisco, Manglesota is in.

Otherwise, Manglesota is out.

- If Keen Play wins 2 games or wins 1 game and draws 1 game (Keen Play has the tiebreaker over Vampa Bay), Keen Play is in.

- If Keen Play wins 1 game (Keen Play has tiebreaker over Deadtlanta) and loses 1 game, and Manglesota loses both games, Keen Play is in.
- If Keen Play wins 1 game and loses 1 game, and Vampa Bay doesn't win, Keen Play is in.
- If Keen Play wins 1 game and loses 1 game, and Los Angeles loses both games or loses one and ties one game (Keen Play has tiebreaker over Los Angeles), Keen Play is in.

- If Keen Play draws 2 games, and Vampa Bay doesn't win and Los Angeles loses both games, Keen Play is in.
- If Keen Play draws 2 games, and Vampa Bay doesn't win and Deadtlanta doesn't win, Keen Play is in.

- If Keen Play draws 1 game and loses 1 game, and Vampa Bay loses and Deadtlanta doesn't win, Keen Play is in.

Otherwise Keen Play is out.

- If Los Angeles wins 1 game or draws 2 games (Los Angeles has tiebreaker over Vampa Bay), Los Angeles is in.

- If Los Angeles draws Deadtlanta and loses to Szeattle, and Manglesota loses both games, Los Angeles is in.
- If Los Angeles draws Deadtlanta and loses to Szeattle, and Vampa Bay doesn't win, Los Angeles is in.
- If Los Angeles draws Deadtlanta and loses to Szeattle, and Keen Play doesn't win a game (Los Angeles loses tiebreaker to Keen Play if Keen Play wins 1 and loses 1), Los Angeles is in.
- If Los Angeles draws Szeattle and loses to Deadtlanta (this will mean Los Angeles loses tiebreaker to Deadtlanta), and Manglesota loses both games and Vampa Bay doesn't win, Los Angeles is in.
- If Los Angeles draws Szeattle and loses to Deadtlanta, and Keen Play doesn't win a game and Vampa Bay doesn't win, Los Angeles is in.

- If Los Angeles loses both games, and Vampa Bay loses, and Keen Play doesn't win either game or draw twice, Los Angeles is in.

Otherwise, Los Angeles is out.


In the AFC, we have 10???!?! (I hate AFC) teams competing for the 4 spots:

50 No-Skincinnati Bungles (2 games left - Brew More, New Ziggland)
50 Tijuana Charros (2 games left - HEnnessey, Kansas City)
47 HEnnessy Titanic Hangovers (2 games left - Tijuana, Indianapolis)
47 Wargami Orkafins (1 game left - Brew More)
44 Cleaved Land Bedlam (2 games left - Baltimore, Buffalo)
44 Denver Bubonics (2 games left - Las Fangas, Jakesonville)
44 Jakesonville Jortles (1 game left - Denver)
37 Brew More (2 games left - No-Skincinnati, Wargami)
36 Buffalo (2 games left - Pittsburgh, Cleaved Land)
34 Pittsburgh (2 games left - Buffalo, Baltimore)

No-Skincinnati and Cleaved Land could both still win their divisional titles. This was discussed in the previous post, and I won't redo that work. Instead this will focus purely on points.

- If Pittsburgh wins both games, (edit: and all but one of the following things happens): [Buffalo beats Cleaved Land and Cleaved Land doesn't beat Baltimore, or Baltimore Beats Cleaved Land and Cleaved Land doesn't beat Buffalo], and Brew More beats Wargami, and No-Skincinnati ties or beats Brew More, and Jakesonville ties Denver, and Las Fangas beats Denver, and Tijuana beats HEnnessy and Indianapolis beats HEnnessy, Pittsburgh is in.

- Otherwise, Pittsburgh is out.

Edit: Nevermind. Pittsburg only needs to beat 6 teams, not 7. I'm out! I'm not doing any more AFC work!

Welcome back to.. the Playoff Picture!

Image

For our newer viewers, the NBFL is a very high TV league! with the highest teams close to 3000k TV, we've had games with over 1 million in inducements. The average team starts around 2500k tv, but by this point in the 14 game season, we're down to a mere 2100k tv.

Argh! I drew! WHY

Week 13 is almost over, but its Tuesday, so here we go! We'll look at all teams mathematically still in it.

NFC has 9 teams
East: New York (E) - 65 - division title week 12, playoff spot week 12
West: Szeattle (W) - 64 - playoff spot week 12, division title week 13 (won H2H vs Los Angeles)
South: New New Orleans (S) - 64 - playoff spot week 13, division title week 13
North: Chic'A'Ghost (N) - 62 - playoff spot week 13

Keen Play (N) - 57
Los Angeles (W) - 57
Manglesota (N) - 55

Vampa Bay (S) - 53
Deadtlanta (S) - 50

NFC division leaders (the North still hasn't determined the winner) are all within 3 points of each other. Anyone could get the bye! (Although with a week 14 game done, only 3 of the teams are still in the competition)

AFC has 11 teams! .. in WEEK THIRTEEN. WHYYYYYY
West: Las Fangas (W) - 72 - playoff spot week 12, division title week 12, secured the bye week 13
South: Orcston (S) - 62 - playoff spot week 13, division title week 13
East: New Ziggland (E) - 57 - playoff spot week 13, division title week 13
North: No-Skincinnati (N) - 57 - playoff spot week 13, division title week 13

Tijuana (W) - 53 - playoff spot week 13
HEnnessy (S) - 50
Wargami (E) - 47

Jakesonville (S) - 44
Cleaved Land (N) - 44
Denver (W) - 44
Pittsburgh (N) - 41

The division titles have all been decided. The bye has been decided. All that's left is for AFC to realize that it can't send 87 (fine, 11) teams to the playoffs and FIGURE OUT THE WILD CARDS.
