WMFL Trash Talk

Started: Oct 20th, 20132013 Round Robin Playoff Trash Talk
Regular season's all done, how do the results compare to expectations? What will happen with this new format? Who got a good draw, who is in tough?

The playoff schedule is on the website in the rtf file, I'm working on creating a database with the playoff schedule and pooled standings, so sit tight. First week schedule is posted below, remember, if you don't play your team is required to provide two refs for the games that are going on (refs ref opposite pool).

4th - Ravens vs 5th Patriots
3rd Browns vs 6th Redskins
1st Cowboys vs 8th Packers
2nd Steelers vs 7th Broncos

New format in a nutshell - teams divided into two pools based on regular season standing (1, 4, 5, 8 and 2, 3, 6, 7). Round robin in your pool, first two in pool standings cross-over against first two in other pool (1 vs 2), bottom two cross-over as well. Winners play winners, losers play losers. Note that pool standings are based solely on playoff games - tiebreakers remain the same as for regular season.

Week 4, past the halfway point in the regular season.

Cowboys showed us all what theyre made of this week, I think we can all agree on that.

Any other impressions of what's going on out there?

Another wet week, what did Week 3 tell us?
Favourites are shaping up, so are disappointments, who may become the Cinderellas of the playoffs...

Week two in the books, what do we know now that we didn't know before the weekend started?

Boards were pretty quiet last week, anybody out there?

First week has been completed, hope everyone has had a chance to dry off.

Now that we've seen (most of) the teams what does everybody think? Any surprises? Any disappointments?

Also, I've posted an alternate format (pdf ok with you?) for the schedule, with the scores to date too! The standings and team lists are there in pdf as well.

First week of playoffs is over with, two lower seeds winning, the Redskins who get to face the first place Patriots for a chance at the big prize. The Broncos also took care of the Steelers, but that only got them out of reffing this week and a slightly easier draw than the Steelers. So it's Pats-skins and Cowboys-Packers in the other semi-final. On the Losers' side, well, it's everybody else.

Speaking of reffing, and before I hear about this, sorry 49ers, Redskins and Giants, youre reffing again...I'll definitely have to re-look at that schedule next year! Of course had the Redskins not upset the 49ers then I'm pretty sure this wouldn't have happened, so blame Noah, Chambers or even Mother Nature as the rain held off!

Congratulations to the Patriots for their regular season title, but we all know it's about the playoffs in the WMFL (What's that? Ah - Playoffs? Don't talk about - playoffs? You kidding me? Playoffs?). Yes, playoffs! They start this week with the match-ups posted by some anonymous poster on Saturday (no, Raf, that wasn't me, I sign my posts, sorry for not getting the schedule up until Sunday afternoon). Here's how it looks:

#1 Patriots vs. #8 Ravens
#2 Cowboys vs. #7 Browns
#3 Packers vs. #6 Giants
#4 49ers vs. #5 Redskins
And in the "They-Gotta-Have-A-Game-To-PlayThis-Week Bowl" its #9 Steelers vs. #10 Broncos

Don't forget to check the reffing schedule, we wouldn't want a playoff game to be decided by an 8 point penalty for not showing up to ref a game - that rule is still in place for the playoffs.

Looking forward to the insightful predictions (and Tank's blathering) on how the playoffs will go, not to mention the trash talk (has anybody heard from Snyder?).

One week to go and spots are still up for grabs! Patriots have their first place destiny in their hands as they hold the tie-break over the Packers by virtue of their week 3 win over the Pack. Assuming the Pack takes care of business at 9:30, they'll be cheering for the 49ers in the late game as they hold the tie-breaker over them thanks to their week 4 win over the 9ers. The 49ers will be cheering for the Browns in the 9:30 game so they can hold their destiny with a win over the Pats. And that's just first place. Looking at the final playoff spot, the Broncos are still very much alive, they'll be cheering for the Packers because a Browns loss will put their destiny in their hands against the Cowboys who will be playing for as high as a second place finish (Packers loss, 49ers win) although they could still finish fourth even with a win but only as low as fifth with a loss (and a Redskins win). There are more scenarios that will impact the middle of the standings, but I think this is enough for this morning. The only thing we know for sure is that the Steelers will not be in the top 8 (although they could avoid a last place finish with a win over the Ravens and a Broncos loss, but that's barely a moral victory...)
