[color=#CC0000:ad2fbdf4ff]The games in bold have direct playoff implications (teams in italics are on the bubble*). Please make an extra effort to get them played.[/color]

To Scorpionfct, JBWarlock, Frostfire 2112, Cabbot, and firesloth: Given that you are out of the playoff race and your game this week has no playoff implications, would you be interested in taking over Seattle for this week in order to give ruthlessmuffin a proper game? It appears that squirrelmonkey is MIA. The first to post in the thread (with an acceptance, of course) wins the honor. [size=6](Stupid SwampYankee.)[/size]

Neo, it's you and me, bro. Any day after 2100 CST (1900 PST)...

As an aside, I am occasionally amused by some of the quirks in the scheduling of the two different leagues. In GWJFL 2005, I have a rematch with my GWJFL3 opponent from week 15 - FireSloth (with completely different teams, of course) - while, at the same time, I am playing Green Bay in both leagues (both with coaches on the west coast) this calendar week.

*One 9-7 team will be sitting home unless all 9-6 teams win and all 10-5 teams lose. Then it will be a 10-6 team that misses the big dance.

Whomever has Philly come beat Tampa Bay.

Edit: Psycho its you and me

Certis, I will be out of town from this afternoon through the weekend. I''ll see if I can catch you for Monday Night Football.

Poppinfresh, when would you like to play? I can do tonight earlier or anytime Friday. Saturday would havbe to be later. I can do Sunday night as well.

Grumpy, how do you figure that I''m on the bubble of anything more than mediocrity (sp?) There are a number of teams with 9 wins exceeding the number of playoff slots. Best I can do is 8-8 (Which I''ll be satisfied with after this season!)

I could play as Seattle this week - the Broncs were really just an experiment in a different type of team, so I''m always willing to expand my experience.

So would you want me to play BOTH games, then? I''m on vacation starting Friday, so I could but I''m not sure if the game lets you do both.

You can''t own teams. You could play one, drop from the league, take the other, then play its game.

Ah. That''s what I figured.

Okie, Grump... if it''ll help the league out (I''m sure ruthless is sitting here thinking ""no, really, it''s okay, I don''t need to play...) I can take Seattle this week.

Anytime between 8:00AM EST and 5PM EST Friday is probably a good bet for me. Today and Saturday I am screwt (cursed people wanting me to go out... ), but Sunday I look to be totally open. Choose your adventure!

I hate to rush my games and I don''t escape work until after 4 on Friday so lets try fro Sunday evening, OK?

Sounds good to me. You pick the time and I''ll be there... maybe even with some lit candles and romantic music in the background... tiger.

Wait a second, was that last part out loud?

Grrrrr.

Let''s say 7 PM EST TENTATIVELY as I have to go visit the inlaws for a while during the day but I will try to escape before dinnertime

Houston, we are a go! For 7PM definitelymaybe. Hey, if you''re late I''ll just sit there with a glass of wine in one hand, looking kind of sad...

Certis, I will be out of town from this afternoon through the weekend. I''ll see if I can catch you for Monday Night Football.

Sounds good, drop me a PM when you think you''ve got a time.

I can probably play tonight or tomorrow or any day next week around 7pm PST.

Ok well lets shoot for tonight then Psycho...

Legion,

I''m up for a game tonight after 7 pm PST or sometime Saturday or Sunday afternoon. Monday''s about the last I could get a game in, if we need to wait that long.

You''re right, you''re right, I know you''re right. I just took all teams +/- 1 of where the current line was drawn (9-6). Original post edited.

No need. You can just drop and let Pigpen take the BYE... unless you want to play both games. If you can drop during the day, then I can send you the invite from here. If not, I''ll boot you from the league an re-invite you when I get home tonight.

BUT... given what Swampy pointed out, there''s really no need. Even if he got the free win, the Ravens won''t make the playoffs so... we won''t bother with all of the hoop-jumping and just play our final games as scheduled. Sorry for the confusion; my bad.

Fair enough.

Who''s Atlanta, then?

(I hate being at work where I don''t have .NET and therefore can''t check the leagues...

Atlanta = ScorpionFCT = Pigpen

Warlock - after putting up 27 points on Tampa Bay - fear me - and come face my nameless quarterback (I think is sclaub or sclob or something) and his fearless receivers (fearless because you don''t get hit if you never catch anything).

Hear me roar!!!

Let me take it further - my kitty will poop fishies upon your baby faced warlock...for I am mighty now - yes...I am...no...really...hey...are you listenin'' - over here...Hellooooooooooooo? Anyone out there?

And Grump - get rid of the gay south park dude - you are a viking - learn to live with it!!!

I liked the VooDoo helmet better :).

U do that VooDoo that U do so well

This thread shall henceforth be dedicated to denouncing Grumpicus'' change of avatar from the viking over the keyboard - I don''t know how I can drink coffee and read these pages without that image...

Its just WRONG!

SpyNavy''s joining of the kitty cat emporium (also known as the pussy cat patrol) is most welcome though!

Power to the cat avatars!!! (and for Certis - !!!)

<gives Pigpen his Ritalin>

Ok boy... deep breaths...

So yeah... I''m on vacation starting tomorrow, whenever you want to play, as long as it''s before Tuesday evening, will probably work for me, Pig. I would prefer Sunday or Monday evening (but not Monday between 7 and 9:30pm).

I''m EST, by the way.

...bowing to peer-pressure...

Edit: though if the Voodoo win their division again, expect to see the helmet''s return.

Bagga I can go Mon-Thu 7pm-1am PST or weekend by appointment let me know when you are available.

Aww shucks, I was hoping we could play this weekend as I''ll be out of town from Monday morning until early thursday morning. I can play anytime saturday during the day, or anytime thursday. Sunday could be arranged too but it''s not ideal.

I be looking for you soon Grumpy.

It''s painful how both of my super close games (well played by Thin might I add)with Thin last week put me in what are essentially must win situations in both leagues this week.

You forget that two 8-7 teams could become 9-7. How does the game handle tiebreakers?

I can go Saturday morning if you want say around 9am PST?
