DeuceBowl XXII

Welcome to the 21st DeuceBowl... Jennifer, a chance to make history as no original DFC'er has won the title since DFC VI in 2005. Steven, a chance to become immortal and one of the all time greats with a 2nd title, becoming only the 4th DFC'er to do so.

As we did last week, here are 10 games, and then 2 contingency games below. If any of the 10 are canceled, we will use CG #1 first, then #2. If more than two are canceled, we'll just chalk it up as W for both of you.

And like any championship, it all comes down to the number of games you pick differently. We've had a season previous come down to the outcomes of a single game, but it is what it is. 

And you do have the chance to change your picks after submission until Friday afternoon. 

Good luck.

It's a strange record to hold, and I'm not even sure how to track it's impressiveness... but not only has Jonathan Osborne won the final week of this season -- his 7th of his career -- but he's won the final week of  the past two seasons as well... as well as Week 12 (final week) of DFC IX in 2008.  It's quite a rebound of from his 1 game win several weeks ago, enough to toss him right into the postseason.

Though his worst season, and tied for lowest amount of wins in a season at 37, Drew Warren takes 2nd for the week at 7-2 -- to be fair though, Josh Crosby won 37 games in 12 weeks in DFC IV, while Drew likely would have hit 48 if given another 3 weeks.  Drew // Morris gets 3rd for the week, and Mark "The Mighty" Gainey takes 4th, both at 7-2.

Mitchell "Pinky the Younger" Pinkerton gets 5th, Tyler "New Dad" Campbell takes 6th, DMO gets 7th, Matthew "Pinky the Eldest" Pinkerton gets 8th, all at 6-3.

Coming in at 5-4, Lt Dan "Magic Legs" Sellers in 9th, Jacob "Pinky the Pinky" Pinkerton in 10th, Jennie Ernst in 11th, and Big Eddy rounds out the Top 12 in 12th.

Also finishing:

5-4: Lil Stevie Ray... Bradley "Pinky the Wisest" Pinkerton... The Big Wasyluka... Hurricane Rhett... Grandy Latta... 

4-5: Trey "The Answer" Cartledge... Yours Truly... Wook Fu... Zack "The Attack" Graves... James "The Playoff Maker" Hawbaker...

3-6: Young Garrett... Mikey Nipp... Tommy "The Highlander" McLeod... Big Tom Johnson... Tad "The Dynasty" Roose.. Eddy Jr...  Brad "The Bald One" Ashby... The Croyle... Danny Powell...


Because of the strange year we've had, we instituted the "Top 12 Records" rule this year -- top 12 get in, regardless of division or conference -- but your division title would grant you the higher seed, regardless of TBA.  We also ran the risk of having a division champion not make the postseason because of record not being in the Top 12 (we're not the NFL... we 're not having a 5-11 division champ make the playoffs at the expense of a much better team).  

And this year, DMO gets the honor of winning a division and missing the postseason in what can only be billed as the NFC East of the DFC.  Congrats!

Grandy Latta gets 2nd place, nailing the TB score and going 8-2. Tim Wasyluka seems destined for another TBA Crown this year, coming close again, and getting 3rd for the week, while Jonathan Osborne continues to rebound from his disastrous 1-9 a few weeks ago, taking 4th. The final 8-2 record of the week belongs to Tyler "New Dad" Campbell, who gets 5th for the week.

Coming in 6th is Steven Ray at 6-4, James Hawbaker in 7th, Tom Johnson in 8th, and in a rarity, the McBroom boys tie for 9th.

This will give us one extra week to make sure we get a full and proper playoffs so when I... I mean, so when someone wins, it won't have to be with a partial postseason.

The New York Football Giants 20, Washington Team Playin Tha Foosball 19.
Pittsburgh Steelers 38, Cleveland Browns 7
Tampa Bay Buccaneers 38, Green Bay Packers 10
Arizona Cardinals 38, Dallas Cowboys 10

There are 11 people that started this thing back in 2000, and 8 of them are still here.  One, Tom Johnson, has points for longevity, but didn't win his first week until DFC IV.  He won three more since, with the last coming in Week 6 of DFC XIV (2013). This week, however, he can notch a 5th win on his DFC Belt, with a solid 8-2 record and becomes the first of the originals to win a week since DMO won last year.

Also having a stellar year thusfar, original DFC'er Jenny Ernst at 8-2, good enough for 2nd, while Young Garrett Cheney takes 3rd with 7-3.  Also at 7-3, Mark "The Mighty" Gainy gets 4th, Danny P in 5th, and at 6th, Lil Stevie Ray goes 6-4.

In 7th place for the week, Big Eddy Mac, Tad "The Dynasty" Roose and Tyler "TSPSBotDFC" Campbell tie for 8th, and Jacob "Pinky the Pinky" Pinkerton and DMO tie for 10th, all at 6-4.  And Drew // Morris gets the 12th spot at 6-4

Also Finishing:
5-5: Zack "The Attack" Graves...  Wook Fu... James "The Playoff Maker" Hawbaker... Bradley "Pinky the Wiser" Pinkerton... Jonny Oz... Grandy Latta... Hurricane Rhett... Eddy Jr... Yours Truly... Mitchell "Pinky the Younger" Pinkerton... Lt Dan "Magic Legs" Sellers... 
4-6: Brad "Lawdawg" Latta... Tommy "The Highlander" McLeod... Trey "The Answer" Cartledge... The Croyle... Matty "Pinky the Elder" Pinkerton... Mikey Nipp
3-7: The Big Wasyluka... Brad "Not Scott Van Pelt" Ashby... Drew "Grassman" Warren



aaaaaand the bottom five  
Tim Wasyluka (16-21)... Dan Sellers (18-19)... Bradley Pinkerton (17-20)... Mitchell Pinkerton (17-20)... Drew Warren (13-24)


  • My fave segment, full of real numbers and real stats that hardly anyone looks at.
  • Looking at the All Time W-L records, Imma pat myself on the back as Yours Truly becomes the first one to reach 1200 lifetime regular season wins (1201), while Jennifer Ernst's great season is already helping her in the all time standings.  She and Tommy McLeod are tied with 1167 for 2nd all time.
  • Drew Morris is in 4th (1153)... Big Eddy Mac (1150)... Jonathan Osborne (1130)... Mark Gainey (1122)... DMOsborne (1108)... Tad Roose (1091) and Lil Eddy Mc (1087) complete the top 10
  • The retirement of Lori "Sunshine" Beirne definitely made an impact as her 1064 wins put her 12th all time.  Tom Johnson passed her this season for 11th place (1073), while both Mikey Nipp and Daniel Powell will likely pass her in the next week (1060 each)
  • Returning to the fray after a 10 year absence is two time DFC Champ Chris "Wookiee" Fulaytar, who's time off didn't help his overall win total. While making the most of his brief stint of 5 previous seasons (winning DFC III and the legendary run in DFC V), he's still sporting the lowest regular season win total of any active DFC'er, at 316 wins.
  • Adding in the postseason wins, the numbers get a little tighter. While Yours Truly sits atop this pile as well (due to longevity, not to huge success, mind you) with 1313 wins. Drew Morris (1295) and Big Eddy (1293) will likely cross 1300 this week, while Mark Gainey (1286) will get there soon. DMO moved into 9th all time (1153), passing Lori "Sunshine" Beirne (1152) this week. Big Eddy Jr is right outside the Top 10 with 1132 for 11th place.
  • Congrats to Daniel Powell for moving past 1100 now at 1101, while Big Tom Johnson is at 1087 and Mikey Nipp at 1072
  • Nearing 1000 wins all time is Tim Wasyluka with 992, and congrats to Trey Cartledge for getting past 900 all time (he's at 915).
  • Two streaks we always keep an eye on are the .500 streak and the .500+ streak... the long standing record for going .500 or better is Tad Roose, who went FORTY FIVE weeks with nary a losing record, in a streak that started in DFC IV (2003) and ending in DFC VIII (2007), and truthfully, its underappreciate how incredible this feat was -- I'm not sure it will ever be broken
  • Several have tried, though none have come close.  Yours Truly managed 32 weeks, while Matt "The Mad Scientist" Halpert and Gary "The Idol" Eubanks hit 24 weeks. 
  • However, the current streak is held by Mark "The Mighty" Gainey, who just hit his 27th week in the streak.  Fingers crossed. For Mark to break the record, it would have to continue until Week 2 in DFC XXIII, in 2022.
  • The even harder streak is the .500+ streak, which is records above .500 in consecutive weeks.  Matt 'The Great Bear of the North" Latta still holds that mark at 17 weeks, and truthfully, very few people have ever come close.  The current active streak is Steven Ray, who just hit 10 weeks in a row.

DFC XXI - Week Three Results

New Orleans Saints 30, LA Chargers 27 OT

It's hard to believe that Tyler Campbell, who appointed himself "The Sexy Beast of the DFC" in Season XII (back when that term was actually used in regular conversation), has only won two previous weeks in his career. And you'd think that going 8-0 would help him win his third.

But it didnt... as Grandy Latta also went 8-0 and won his own third week of his career -- his first being Week 1 of DFC XI, and then Week 3 of DFC XVI (that's 2011 and 2015 respectively).  Tyler and his 8-0 takes 2nd place for the week, Brad "Lawdawg" Latta, Jenni Ernst, and Danny Powell took 3rd, 4th, and 5th, all with 9-1 records

In 6th place is Lil Stevie Ray, while Drew // Morris takes 7th, James "The Weekly Top Ten Ranking Maker" Hawbaker gets 8th, DMO in 9th, and Matthew "Pinky the Elder" Pinkerton takes 10th.

Rounding out the Weekly Top 12 is Lt Dan "Magic Legs" Sellers and Brad "The Bald One" Ashby.  All are at 8-2

Also Finishing:
8-2: Tommy "The Highlander" McLeod
7-3: Young Garrett... Jonny Oz... Big Eddy... The Croyle... Hurricane Rhett... Bradley "Pinky the Wiser" Pinkerton... Eddy Jr... Zack "The Attack" Graves... Yours Truly... Mikey Nipp...

DFC XXI Week One Results

Week One of the 21st DFC Season... several 1-7 records due to people missing week one... but because of the Cincinnati/Philadelphia tie, its an automatic win, so no one goes 0-8.

(normally there is a Top 10, but since the Top 12 make the postseason this year, this section will be the Top 12)
Three championships prior, though it's been 14 seasons since, but Tad "The Dynasty" Roose become the 8th DFC'er to start the season undefeated, going 8-0 for Season XXI.  Yours Truly finishes a close 2nd, at 7-1, while Tommy "The Highlander" McLeod, James "The Top Ten Maker" Hawbaker, and Young Garrett Cheney round out the top five.

The rest of the top 10 also finished at 6-2, with Brad "The Bald One" Ashby, Big Eddy Mc, Jonny Oz, The Wookiee Fulaytar, and Trey "The Answer" Cartledge.  Daniel Powell gets 11th at 5-3 and Brad "Lawdawg" Latta grabs 12th at 5-3.

Also Finishing:
5-3: Lil Stevie Ray... Grandy Latta... Jenni Ernst... Tom "Big" Johnson... Mark "The Mighty" Gainey... Matthew "The Elder Pinky" Pinkerton... Tyler "The Self Appointed Sexy Beast of the DFC"... Hurricane Rhett... The Croyle... Mitchell "The Younger Pinky" Pinkerton... 
4-4: Mikey Nipp... The Big Wasyluka... Eddy Jr... 
3-5: Pinky "The Pinky" Pinkerton... Drew // Morris
1-7: Drew "Grassman" Warren... Bradley "The Wiser Pinky" Pinkerton... DMO... Lt Dan "Magic Legs" Sellers... Zack "The Attack" Graves

Defending Champ Justin "The Rook" Dearing and Matt "The Mad Scientist" Dearing both have stepped out, both with work related time constraints. Justin retires after a brief, championship winning three season career, while Matt leaves behind a 13 year Hall of Fame worthy career that saw him winning the DFC XVII title.  

Chris Fulaytar moves from the East Division down to the South Central to even things up... onward we go!

DFC XXI: The Line Up

 The 21st Season of the DFC has commenced... we've lost a few, including Rick Thuele (4 seasons), Remodeling Clay Shaver (6 seasons), Atlanta Bill (4 seasons), and stepping away this year, Lori "Sunshine" Beirne, after an incredible 18 season career. 

But welcome back to the fold... after being gone for 11 years, Chris "Wook Fu" Fulaytar returns for his 6th season in the DFC. A two time champion, he's single and ready to mingle... or something.

DFC XXI - The Pandemic Season Rules

So I've truly gone back and forth, should we do a half season? a full season? a partial season?  what happens if we go forth and football stops?  In the grand scheme of things, the DFC isn't that important, but we've been doing this for 21 years, so I do take it somewhat seriously.

Here's what I have come up with.

Eight games per week, a 10 week season, with 80 games total. 

While we will hold divisions this year (see next section) the postseason will be determined by all records ranked, regardless of division.  With 34 competing this week, here's how it breaks down:

After Week 8, those holding the bottom 10 records are gone, leaving 24 to move forward
After Week 9, bottom 6 are gone, leaving 18.
After Week 10, The Top 12 Records advance to the postseason

Playoffs Week One - Bottom four are out
Playoffs Week Two - Next bottom four are out
Playoff Final Four - Bottom two are out
DeuceBowl XXI - Two enter. One crowned champion
Everyone's records will remain intact in the divisions. Whoever has the best record in your division will win that division. and division winners get a higher seed over a non-division winner in the Top 12.

We will take it week by week. We must finish at least 7 weeks of the season to have a champion. If I see there is nothing going forward, whoever has the best record will be crowned the DFC Champ (though this is worst case scenario)

Also, I have the right to make decisions on the fly week by week if I see the writing on the wall (as in, start the playoffs early, shorten the season, etc)

If football shuts down before 7 weeks, then there will be no champion -- but all wins and losses will be counted to your overall career stats.
