posted by September 11 at 11:12 AMon
The first week of the 2008 football season is officially over, which means it’s time for the first All-Slog 2008 Fantasy Football Thunderdome League of Champions™ wrapup!
It’s been an ugly, injury-filled season so far, and plenty of matchups were turned upside down when star players like Tom Brady or, well, Tom Brady went down with season-ending injuries. And it’s only going to get worse, especially for the Thunderdome teams that drafted from the once-reliable Seahawks receiving corps.
Here are the scores:
The Green Giants barely squeaked out a win, beating Bwee&Gwee’s Dingbats 88-86.
The Tight Ends squeezed out a 72-54 win over Hasselbeck’s Hairline.
The Ahmadinejad Show shot down Hochuli’s Guns with a 97-70 win.
The Slogaholics subjugated the Rightwing Feminists, 76-69
My Thunderbolts were still able to overpower the New Orleans Taints 76-67, despite the fact that I started an inactive Deuce McAlister and a totally useless Laveranues Coles.
and El Swinger’s Evergreen Stoners absolutely stomped Wisepunk’s Spikers, with a final score of 110 to 52.
The final standings (ranked by points scored):
1. Evergreen Stoners
2. The Ahmadinejad Show
3. Green Giants
4. Hass’s Thunderbolts
6. The Tight Ends
7. Bwee&Gwee’s Dingbats
8. Hochuli’s Guns
9. Rightwing Feminists
10. New Orleans Taints
11. Hasselbecks Hairline
12. Wise’s Spikers
As for other football news, the Seahawks just signed a few free agent receivers to make up for the holes in our roster. The ‘Hawks also cut punter Ryan Plackemeier and, in the biggest bonehead move so far this season, released this guy:
…who was immediately snatched up by the Colts. Ugh.
Next week, the Hawks play a divisional game against the 49ers. Predictions, gripes, etc in the comments.
