The Cleveland Browns had a promising season in 2018. They showed grit and fight and promise. This offseason, they stacked the proverbial deck by adding big names on both offense and defense. Everyone was all aboard the 2019 Browns train, national pundits included! A gorgeous sunny Sunday arrived on September 8th for their first game of 2019 and just after 1:00pm eastern, the Browns morphed right back into the Typical Clowns. 1 week 1 win in 21 tries is…not great. Not even having 20% of our own league in attendance could help the cause here..the Typical Clowns typical clowned. FunkyEngineThatCould, Team Punisher, Leonard Washingtons, LM’s Gamblers & Dirt Mane shotgunned beers for naught. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me 20 out of 21 times PLAYOFFS?!?!?!??!?!?!?!
Again, just as a refresher after the draft concludes but before Week 1 action any owner who wishes to participate will pay $20 in the hopes that their ENTIRE team will rack up the most amount of points through the FFBMCO post season.
Teams that are alive in the postseason can actively manage their roster as normal, but teams that are not post season eligible will be playing their locked roster (no adds/drops) the duration of the PLAYOFFS?!?! The team with the largest sum of points roster-wide will win whatever the pot is.
1. Pay an additional $20 if you want to be eligible for the Post Season Continuation pool
2. Locked teams, that is any of the 12 teams who did not make the playoffs and teams that lose a playoff game and become locked, will sum up the points of their entire roster each week of the playoffs
3. Active teams, that is, any of the teams still alive in the playoffs, will sum up the points of their entire roster each week of the playoffs but still be able to drop/add players as needed in their quest for the Iron Throne.
4. Winner takes the pot.
Best of luck to the 6 warriors.
SEVEN BLESSINGS to The Replacements for dropping a whopping 160 points in week 1 to kick start their campaign. Owner Joe Kline 1st got hitched, then got a dog, and now he’s going to be a dad soon so he’s not taking any prisoners.
TO THE WALL with Timmy Derp’s Derpers as he excreted out the week 1 low of 53 points. After a promising draft, his young team really shot themselves in the face with a cannon and asked AREN’T WE GREAT CHARACTERS?!?
The maesters of The Citadel are scouring the archives to see if this is the first time the high and low both had nice whole number scores in the same week. Bless those maesters.
For folks that weren’t paying attention, there was a myriad of draft night trades involving 954 Vice City, Dirt Mane and Leonard Washingtons. At the end of the day, Dirt Mane cashed in his #1 overall pick for James Conner, 954 Vice City got Dede Westbrook, Austin Ekeler, Kyle Rudolph and Denver D, and Leonard Washingtons got QB of the future Kylie Jenner…I mean Kyler Murray with Shady McCoy and Matt Prater
And that’s not all folks…Nick “I have the itchiest trigger finger in the history of FFBMCO Tri-State Hate” Haithcock also made another move after week 1 action sending Austin Ekeler and his 2020 9th round pick to The Golden Boy Farm for Dion Lewis, Marcus Mariota and Conneaut Joe’s 2020 2nd round pick. For the 3rd time it looked as if the Golden Boy Farm was finally overrun with weeds only to have a golden trade offered to him to keep his success rolling right along.
Not to be out done, our OG champ Brick Tamland and Best in the World completed the continuation of their 2018 deal with Brick Tamland sending his 2020 5th round pick to Best in the World for his 8th. And finally, Brick Tamland sent OJ Howard to Daws Boot in exchange for Kenny Golladay.
League activity at it’s finest and we haven’t even started week 2 yet! RIP Andrew Luck!
As previously announced, the September prize of an NFL House Banner will be awarded to the team whose IDP scored the highest single game amount. Currently, that stands with LM’s Gamblers and Cory Littleton’s 20 point bombardment.
