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!

Seems like the season for "It's been a while since..." but we have another "It's been a while since this a weekly win for...".  This time, original DFC'er and one of the top all timers, Jennifer Ernst takes her 7th weekly win, and her first since Week Three of DFC XVII in 2016., this time with a 9-1 record. 

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.

Rounding out the Top 12, a three-way tie for 11 with Brad Latta, Drew Morris, and Matty Pinky, all at 5-5.

 NOTE: Watching the increase of games being cancelled due to COVID issues, and the fact there is no way we'll get to the desired 96 games, the DFC regular season will end after week nine -- so we have this week and next week, and the postseason will begin. 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.
