  1. Congrats @Tywin et al.! A recurring story in Experts is me giving someone hell for years until they ultimately shut me up by beating me in a pivotal matchup, like Jaxom did winning his first Experts title over me, and like you did in the W-A finals beating me to finally make it after years of frustration. Well earned. Also welcome back @Prince of the North! I liked my W-C team. Wish it had put up more of a fight in the finals.
  2. And I'm on my way to giving it right back to you. I'm like Andy Bernard. You do me a favor, wham, favor returned.
  3. Believe me, feels weird returning through the backdoor. Would much rather earn my way back in but Groz had been DMing me since the spring to take his spot and so finally agreed to do so but felt weird about it. In terms of Experts logic, I was the last team Jaxomed and don't believe there was a 3rd qualified league winner out there to fill the opening. In the past if there isn't a qualified team to take a spot, we've let Jaxomed teams back in. That said, if there's a case for anyone else for it, I'm happy to give this up to them. There's no requirement we stick to that precedent. Feel like George Costanza loudly quitting, regretting it, and then hoping no-one will remember when he's attending the company meeting the next day. On the plus side, these 8 months of being out of Experts has cleansed me of the commissonership similar to, and spoiler warning for the particularly slow book readers/show watchers, the loophole Jon Snow used to free him from his Nights Watch vows by being temporarily dead. So, in a way...... this has potentially worked out better than before (except for WJ).
  4. I'd prefer one of the two Wednesdays if possible
  5. Out for 9/2-9/3 otherwise can make the rest work. 9/5 would be the ideal imo
  6. I'm in for W-A and I suppose W-C
  7. @Dunknegg, @Babblebauble, @mcbigski, @Whiskeyjack, @Jaxom 1974, @boiled leather, @J.J. Lannister, @RaceBannon42, @grozeng, @Mudguard Ok with another Experts season about to start the league needs a commissioner. WJ is the logical choice as he already runs most of the other board leagues and is willing to do this one as well unless anyone else has any interest in doing it? Otherwise will toss him the keys and y'all can go ahead and figure out a draft date and all the rest.
  8. Congrats Week! Looks like that's now 6 years in a row. Ridiculous. Was sure with the kind of lead Groz had the first couple months that the streak was ending for sure and then of course I look up and Week has made up a 10 point gap in a day and is on his way to cruising to another title. B horror movie villain shit.
  9. Oh I see. You don't show up on the league's main page though it should be a list of current league members is still set to 2021 standings when there were 9 of us but you do show up in the Managers tab. Cool, glad to see it.
  10. @Jaxom 1974 looks like you haven't actually joined the league yet. You gotta join the league first before you can set pre-draft values.
  11. Either works but prefer Tuesday.
  12. I can do Wednesday. Also fine with a delayed start to the season. Fine with a 4 month season.
  13. Ok we have our Experts lineup for next year (assuming no one opts out): Dunk, Jace, mcbigski, WJ, Jaxom, BL, JJ, Race, Groz, Mudguard. A new commissioner will need to be decided but probably can wait until closer to the start of the season to figure that out. Good luck all.
  14. Congrats to @Dunknegg on the Experts title. Along with Jace, had the best team all year and put up two monster scores in the playoffs. A deserving champ. Regarding Jaxoming, if I'm reading the fantasy football thread we have two qualified entrants @grozeng (from winning W-A) and @Mudguard (from winning W-B and W-C). In addition @RaceBannon42 saves himself by winning Keeper. Groz and Mudguard, please weigh in if you intend to join Experts next year.
  15. Final Power Rankings 1) Dunknegg - 91-35, 10-4, 2263.38 points 2) Jace - 90-36, 10-4, 2349.50 points 3) WJ - 74-52, 8-6, 2161.44 points 4) BL - 65-61, 6-8, 2013.42 points 5) Mcbigski - 60-66, 10-4, 2086.64 points 6) JJ - 55-71, 4-10, 1958.06 points 7) Jaime - 54-72, 5-9, 2022.64 points 8) Jaxom - 51-75, 6-8, 1940.74 points 9) Race - 47-79, 5-9, 1909.62 points 10) Bronn - 43-83, 6-8, 1835.32 points Byes: (1) - Jace (2) - Dunk First Round playoffs: (3) - Mcbigski vs. (6) Jaxom (4) - WJ vs. (5) BL Jaxoming Order: Bronn Race Jaime Saved by Power Ranking: JJ A characteristically wild last week with BL and Race's matchup and a playoff berth/Race's elimination on the line flipping late during the MNF game before James Conner finally locked it down for BL. Jaxom meanwhile slides into the 6th seed based on his win and Bronn and I losing. Additionally JJ survives by a single power ranking win over me (and by outscoring Mcbigski by 2.34 points) and was teetering on a knife's edge throughout the Monday nighter with the potential of being passed by any of the 3 teams he ultimately outscored. But the end result is JJ lives on to survive for another season. Once again, every last point matters. Meanwhile Bronn, Race and I are now all Jaxomed in that order depending on how many qualified Experts applicants there are. Though each can regain life by winning another league. Good luck to all the playoff teams.
  16. You think football is still fun? As you can see from WJ's post above, if Stafford scores less than around 50 points and I don't win W-A I'm Jaxomed. Maybe you can have my spot, that would be poetic. Though in the past your trash talk usually signaled your imminent elimination from the playoffs. Be better! I don't want you to be the guy in the PG-13 movie everyone's *really* hoping makes it happen. I want you to be like the guy in the rated R movie, the guy you're not sure whether or not you like yet. You're not sure where he's coming from. Okay? You're a bad man, Tywin. You're a bad man, bad man.
  17. Yeah genuinely can't believe I have a chance at the playoffs after being 4-8. This league is batshit. I'm not saying I'll be coming after Kamara and Deebo with poisonous blow darts this week. But I'm also not not saying that.
  18. Power Rankings Week 13 1) Dunknegg - 83-34, 9-4, 2069.24 points 2) Jace - 81-36, 9-4, 2157.62 points 3) WJ - 69-48, 7-6, 2014.22 points 4) BL - 61-56, 5-8, 1873.94 points 5) Mcbigski - 58-59, 10-3, 1949.60 points 6) JJ - 52-65, 4-9, 1818.68 points 7t) Race - 47-70, 5-8, 1777.70 points 7t) Jaime - 47-70, 5-8, 1846.82 points 9) Jaxom - 45-72, 5-8, 1784.36 points 10) Bronn - 42-75, 6-7, 1700.40 points Ok here where we're at: Top 4 playoff seeds Byes: Will comes down to mcbigski, Jace and Dunk. Mcbigski gets the 1 seed and a bye if he beats Jaxom. However if he loses and Jace beats me and Dunk beats JJ he could miss out on a bye entirely. WJ has also clinched a playoff spot but has no shot at a bye. Then the shit really hits the fan. Playoff seeds 5 and 6 and Jaxoming order Roughly: (If someone wants to do the exact math of all the scenarios, I'd appreciate it. I'm still too jetlagged to try. And please correct me if I'm off on anything) 2 of the 5 below can make the playoffs. Bronn - Makes the playoffs with a win over WJ. Becomes the 5 seed. Otherwise likely to be near the top of the Jaxoming block. BL - Makes the playoffs with a win over Race. Is the 5 seed if he wins and Bronn loses. Is the 6 seed if Bronn wins and either Jaime loses or Jaime wins but doesn't outscore him by 26.12. If he loses, he's on the Jaxoming block though is guaranteed safe due to power rankings. Race - Makes the playoffs with a win over BL AND either Jaime loses OR Bronn loses AND Jaxom either loses or wins but he outscores Jaxom by 6.66. If he wins but the AND conditions don't occur or loses he'll be somewhere on the Jaxoming block. Jaime - Makes the playoffs with a win over Jace AND either Bronn or BL loses OR BL wins but Jaime outscores him by 26.12 points. If he wins but the AND conditions don't occur or loses, will be somewhere on the Jaxoming block. Jaxom - Makes the playoffs with a win over Mcbigski AND 2 of the 3 of Bronn, Jaime and BL all lose and he maintains his 6.66 point edge over Race. If he wins but the AND conditions don't occur or loses, will be somewhere on the Jaxoming block. Basically everyone in this tier (other than Bronn presumably) is rooting for WJ to beat Bronn to really open things up. JJ - No chance at the playoffs. But has a good chance to be saved by power rankings if BL isn't on the Jaxoming block and doesn't shit the bed in week 14. Will definitely be rooting for BL. What I'm saying to every single person in the league - there's a chance.
  19. Power Rankings Week 12 1t) Dunknegg - 74-34 1t) Jace - 74-34 3) WJ - 61-47 4t) Mcbigski - 55-53 4t) BL - 55-53 6) JJ - 47-61 7) Race - 46-62 8) Jaxom - 45-63 9) Jaime - 43-65 10) Bronn - 40-68 The Jaxoming block is now clear. JJ, Race, Jaxom, me and Bronn are all on it. Bronn has the best chance to avoid it entirely by making the playoffs. Jaxom and Race could also make the playoffs if they win their last two games. JJ and my fate very likely depend solely on power rankings. JJ at least has the power rankings cushion and can control his own destiny if he finishes strong.
  20. Power Rankings Week 11 1) Dunknegg - 69-30 2) Jace - 65-34 3) WJ - 55-44 4) Mcbigski - 51-48 5t) JJ - 47-52 5t) BL - 47-52 7) Jaxom - 44-55 8) Race - 43-56 9) Jaime - 41-58 10) Bronn - 33-66 Jace putting up a historically monster score. Everyone from JJ on down looks to be on the Jaxoming hot seat. Think we're officially at the point to start considering getting your commissioner applications ready. Well we've already had, I believe, 3 teams in Experts go on 13 game win streaks so don't think we can name it that. I am open to naming the act of bragging after a low (i.e. 2-7) power ranking week "pulling a mcbigski" which continues our tradition of naming things after league members (see: Jaxoming) :p
  21. Power Rankings Week 10 1) Dunknegg - 64-26 2) Jace - 56-34 3) Mcbigski - 49-41 4) WJ - 48-42 5) BL - 43-47 6t) Jaime - 41-49 6t) JJ - 41-49 8) Race - 40-50 9) Jaxom - 36-54 10) Bronn - 32-58 Big MNF stakes in two matchups. Jace vs. WJ basically came down to a Deebo vs. Eli Mitchell showdown which turned one sided when Deebo blew up. Race vs. Dunk was Jimmy G vs. Kupp + Michel. That Jimmy G could outscore both allowed Race to preserve his lead and take home the win.
  22. Power Rankings Week 9 1) Dunknegg - 59-22 2) Jace - 47-34 3t) Jaime - 41-40 3t) Mcbigski - 41-40 3t) WJ - 41-40 3t) BL - 41-40 7) JJ - 37-44 8) Race - 34-47 9) Jaxom - 33-48 10) Bronn - 31-50 Very dramatic Monday Nighter between Dunk and WJ which came down to who whether Diontae could outscore Claypool by 3.5 and damn well nearly did on the last drive coming up a mere 11 yards short giving the win to Dunk. Huge log jam now in the middle of the power rankings.
  23. Power Rankings Week 8 1) Dunknegg - 52-20 2) Jaime - 40-32 3) Jace - 39-33 4) Mcbigski - 38-34 5t) WJ - 35-37 5t) JJ - 35-37 7) BL - 32-40 8) Bronn - 31-41 9) Race - 30-42 10) Jaxom - 28-44 We're past the halfway point of the regular season and I still wouldn't remotely hazard a guess who will ultimately be on the Jaxoming chopping block in week 14.
