Come on, Mike - the Pugs and Lugs aren't that unbeatable. The fact they both have two losses this year is cause for some optimism. I won't say the Cubes are confident of pulling off a victory against the Pugs this week... but I did hand them a beating only 3 weeks ago and I think I can repeat the dose.

Good luck to everyone in the playoffs this week...

Regards

Mike

The Acaeum League was my first fantasy football league.  Now I have a better idea of what works and what does not work.

Hey, I had already beaten a lot of powerful teams before facing the Dragonlancers!  Several teams.  Well, two --- The Spoilers (Aneoth) and the Block Wipes (BadMike).

Never underestimate the power of a Cone of Light.  May you never cast it in the darkness!

That's one of the lessons learned, yes.  Next year, I will make the slightest of efforts to research players before frantically trading/dropping/picking up.

Odd that playing Fantasy Football and collecting RPG materials share that and other characteristics . . .

"This is not the LaDanian Tomlinson that you are looking for"  :lol:

Truthfully though, Tomlinson has had for all intents and purposes a down year, so it could have been worse. :)

Too true.  In fact, the Lugs can just ignore their team's lineup and take it easy this week.  Just kick back and think about other things.  Lugs, you are unbeatable.  You've earned a vacation.  Save your energy for when you need it.  Later.  Much later.

Not so fast folks....
After last night it already looks bleak for the Lugs.
Thomas went the heck off for 2 TDs 7 catches and 146 total yards.  8O
If Sproles and Stewart come through like that it will be doom for the Lugs.
Backup RBs beating the Big Lugs to a pulp.
It is starting to look like the Lizards are handing the Lugs vacation tickets right now.
A one and done playoffs for the Big Lugs...

Right now a Pugugly Lizard or a Cubed Lizard Championship seems far more likely.

I own Thomas in one of my other Yahoo leagues, unfortunately he grabbed bench last night.... :cry:   However, my opponent did play Reggie Bush, who has been a disaster since his injury, which he re-injured last night, so I'm ok (although if I had started Thomas that would have been a killing blow...sigh).  I can definitely tell you Thomas will be in the lineup next week vs the Detroit Kittens....!

The Luddite League is cursed....last year I also finished as the #1 seed, and got spanked 2 straight times in the playoffs to finish 4th....Cursed, I tell ya.....

Such pessimism.... the Lizards have a player that got 30 points, and its all doom and gloom.

None of your players have hit the field yet John.... and its a rare week where you don't have MULTIPLE players go over 30. When was the last time your team scored under 140?

On the other hand, if you want to wash your hands of the whole thing and put all your players on the bench as its obviously hopeless, don't let me stop you. If I manage to beat the Uglies this week I'd MUCH rather face the Lizards than the Lugs in the championship game.

Regards

Mike

What happens if there is a tie in a playoff game?

(not that my game is close.... I'm down by plenty. But the Lugs and Lizards looks like it will end up that way....)

Mike - what happens? Flip a coin? Bench scoring? Head to head during the year? Higher finisher in regular season?

As far as I know Yahoo goes by the seeding, meaning that it is up to the lower seed to beat the higher seed, all ties go to the higher seed.

According to the rules...


http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/footba ... es-16.html

In the event that a playoff game ends in a tie, the deadlock will be broken using the following system:

Most touchdowns scored by entire starting roster.
Most fantasy points by starting quarterback(s).
Most fantasy points by starting defensive team(s).
Most fantasy points by starting defensive player(s).
Most fantasy points by starting defensive back(s).
Most fantasy points by starting defensive linemen.
Most fantasy points by starting wide receiver(s).
Most fantasy points by starting running back(s).
Most fantasy points by starting tight end(s).
Most fantasy points by starting kicker(s).
Random "coin flip".

Heh, they must have changed that then. :) I am almost 100% positive it used to be the higher seed moved on.

There you go... I'll leave it to Aneoth and Lucy to sort it out, or wait till Tuesday when all will no doubt be revealed.

I'm too busy working out how many TDs McNabb has to throw for me to beat the Uglies... I think it's 8.

Ugh, I lost every playoff game in every Yahoo league I was in this week.  Geez.  My highlight will be playing for 3rd place in numerous leagues next week... :roll:

Anyway, the rule for playoff tiebreakers seems to be Total TDS, then QB score, then DEF score. By this criteria, it looks like Jo's 7-7 team might squeeze by Aneoth's 12-2 monolith.....she prevailed in all three of these. Pretty incredible playoff game there!!!!

Oh yeh and I can't hold it back....THIS YEAR'S GIANTS ARE TREATING DECEMBER JUST LIKE LAST YEAR'S COWBOYS!!!!  0-2! 20-8 COWBOYS WIN BABY!!!!  Not looking good for last year's superbowl winners the last two weeks.....or the rest of the season.    :D

Just read that Romos Fumble in the End Zone does not count as a lost fumble.
That woulda made the difference.

Hey, let me live it up. If we didn't win this week the playoffs were not going to be an option...it was win or go home.

Saying that, Shane, the G-men better win at least one of the last two (especially the Panther game next week). I learned from last year's Cowboy 13-3 season and playoff flameout you have to finish strong....going 0-4 in December would mean one and out for the Giants, IMO....

What a fluke. Won't believe it's real until I see it on yahoo tomorrow.  If I really did win, I am buying a lottery ticket this week.  One doesn't question crazy luck.   8O  8O
