Greetings, FFL-GOO Owners! I hope everyone is enjoying great food, football, friends and family.
As we enter the final weekend of the regular season, the playoff picture is much clearer in two of our three divisions.
ENGLE DIVISION: Big Bang (9-2) has clinched the division and the #1 overall seed. Griffins (8-3) have clinched the top-seeded wild card slot. BOS and BOX are eliminated from playoff contention.
CAPPELLETTI DIVISION: Mustangs (7-4) have clinched the division. CHI, HVV, DAL are all eliminated from playoff contention. MER holds the tiebreaker over both NCT and OCD for the #2 seed.
PATERNO DIVISION: A 3-way tie going into the final weekend with Thorobreds, Beach Dudes and Longfellows all at 6-5. New Chester controls their destiny — a win over Miami, and they win the division as they hold the tiebreaker over both KEY and OCD. The other pivotal game is KEY vs. OCD this weekend. The winner of that game is assured a playoff spot, and if NCT loses the winner of this game wins the division.
WILD CARDS: Three wild cards advance to the playoffs.
— PHI has clinched (#4 overall seed).
— if NCT wins then the winner of KEY vs. OCD is in (#5 overall seed) PLUS one team at 6-6.
— if NCT loses then two teams at 6-6 would get in.
We could have as many as four teams finish 6-6. The loser of the KEY vs. OCD game will be 6-6. New Chester (6-5), Miami (5-6) and the Froglickers (5-6; vs. PHI this week) could all finish 6-6.
FYI: in case one of these games ends in a tie this week, 6-5-1 is a better record than 6-6.
CLINCHED: BOB, MER, PHI
IN CONTENTION: NCT, KEY, OCD, MIA, FFL
ELIMINATED: BOS, BOX, CHI, HVV, DAL
Gobble, gobble, goo! Happy Thanksgiving!
