.....Because mine sucked balls. I made the playoffs last year at 8-6 and lost to a team that started DeSean Jackson on a night where he would have a punt return for a touchdown and a bunch of long catches. This year I finished 3-11 with my final loss to a different team with a different player because he started....DeSean Jackson. I'm not inviting Eagles fans ever again.
This is how the final week went:
And now to explain the tiebreakers for that ridiculous 4 way tie at 7-7:
- Calvin and Hobbs was eliminated from the playoffs by virtue of losing the season series to Hawkeye Nation (2-0).
- Hawkeye Nation had split the season series with Pink Flamingos, so the next tiebreaker was division record, but both were 2-4 in the "AFC". The deciding tiebreaker was "points scored". Pink Flamingos scored 118 points in defeat while Hawkeye Nation managed just 64.5 points. As a result Pink Flamingos nicked Hawkeye Nation for the final playoff spot by 51 points. Talk about backing in to the playoffs.
- SabresBuffalo Speedfreaks went from out of the playoffs to the #3 spot after his win over Hawkeye Nation in what was essentially an elimination game, and he has the better division record than Pink Flamingos (they split the season series).
The Championship Bracket:
#1 Norv’s Failslip vs. #4 Pink Flamingos
#2 Rex Ryan’s Underpants vs. #3 SabresBuffalo’s Speedfreaks
The Consolation Bracket:
#5 Hawkeye Nation vs. #8 Lose Forever
#6 Calvin and Hobbs vs. #7 Alaska Shadow

So I sucked, how is your season going? It's the playoffs and either you're in or you're not.
