This is it, It all comes down to this. One game left in the regular season and still everything to play for. A few playoff spots have already been taken but we still have some to sort out.
Week 12 – The Captains
Team ‘Captain America’ (The FTLS Boys) are 6-5 for the season and this week go up against Team Europe’s ‘Benedict Arnold’ (Gary Haddow). BA sit just outside the playoffs on 4-7. Week 6 saw BA take the win for Europe, a win here could be the difference between a playoff spot and being in the consolation bracket.
Europe’s captain ‘Team 5 Yard Rush’ (Stocks and Murf) are clinging on to one of the final playoff spots. This week they go up against a playoff bound ‘Mericaaaaaa F*** YEAAA’ (DrakePFSA). They confirmed their spot last week and will want to get a clean sweep over the 5 yard boys after winning in week 6.
Week 12 – Team Member Matchups
USA’s ‘We Selected Scut Farkus’ (Shacknado – Brian) are 4-7 for the season and are out of the playoffs right now. They need a big win and other games to go their way to get in. This week they go up against Europe’s ‘AVFCJPS (James) who are also out of the playoffs but sit at 5-6, a game ahead of WSSF. AVFCJPS got the win on week 6 and need a big win again here to stand a chance of sneaking into the playoffs.
Europe’s ‘Roaring Poulter’ (PittsyNFL) are 6-5 right now and after having a 5-0 start they took on USA’s ‘Mr America’ (Kevin Tompkins) in week 6 and took their first loss of the season. Since then Poulter has only scraped together one win whilst Mr America has got in the playoffs and up to 7-4 for the season. A win for Pouter would get one back and secure the playoffs but a loss could be costly for team Europe.
USA’s ‘JSnakeDFF (Jacob) confirmed a playoff spot and sit at 7-4. This week they face Europe’s ‘JoshPattenden7’. Josh got the win over JSbake in week 6 but unfortunately didn’t get enough done in the season and last week found themselves out of the running for the playoffs. Points are still needed and to round off the season with a double over JSnake would end things on a high for Josh.
Next up, Europe’s ‘Marvellous McIlroy’ (Freddie ‘the franchise tag’ Hall) takes on 5-6 ‘GoingFor2DotCom’ (Geoff). Mcllroy is the only European player confirmed in the playoffs so far whilst GF2DCom are living on the edge as they hang on to a final playoff spot. Mcllroy got a strong win in week 6 and so will look to do the double this week.
USA hold a good lead as we play for the playoffs
Europe took a few games back with a good 4 points last week. But the gap is still large.
Europe trail 30 – USA 36 and need one more big push for the final game of the season or will find it tough going in the playoffs.
