Week 9 Throwdown League Results

S h a r e :

trophy_105x105A league is usually an 8-player, 8-week event, with players playing a 7-week double header regular season. The top two teams after the regular season compete in the eighth week in a triple header championship. A league gives some flexibility to have a little fun with the format, implementing neat twists and turns from regular Throwdown matches over the course of the regular season. Some examples include, “bench only challenges”, or “#RaceToTheBottom” (must pick all uninjured starters, but lowest points wins).

We currently have only one official Throwdown League running, but that should change once sign ups and results become more automated. Then people can even start and run their own league, which would be pretty cool, but we’re not there yet. The payout for this $10 entry fee league is $50 for 1st place and $22 for 2nd place. Each player who placed in these spots also receives the trophy icon and achievement bonus points of 10 and 5 respectively, towards their Leaderboard ranking.

Throwdown League #1

Best-of-Three Championship
#1 jeffNFL vs. #2 Wilforkisland

This league started in Week 3, so Week 9 was the final week of the 7-week regular season. With only a week before the Championship Week, to be played Week 10, players played straight up games with no special conditions.

At the conclusion of the regular season, the top two teams based on head-to-head record advance to a three-game championship. Congrats to jeffNFL and Wilforkisland for finishing 1st and 2nd, respectively, with identical 10-4 won-loss records. They split their season series 1-1, so it came down to points differential, just a 6.55 margin, to give Jeff the number one seed.

8. rhazes_darkk 4 10 1,270.5 1,340.4 -69.9

There wasn’t much suspense going into the final week as something really drastic needed to happen for one of jeffNFL or Wilforkisland to fall out of the top two spots. They did flip between each other again however, for about the third of fourth straight week, with Jeff just edging out Wilfork for top spot as mentioned above.

There was a great fight for third place, as Bigchief37, TheKommish and Luxuriousdusti each finished with 7-7 records. Sifting through the prior results, Bigchief went 3-1 in games vs. TheKommish and Luxuriousdusti, while TheKommish went 2-2 and Luxuriousdusti, 1-3. So, head-to-head record gave us the above order for 3rd through 5th place, even though points differential happened to be in the exact same order.

There were a lot of splits this week. Only Luxuriousdusti went 2-0 while TheKommish went 0-2 in his games. That means there wasn’t a lot of movement from last week. Closing out the final regular season standings, mikemar finished 6th, tttimmyg 7th and rhazes_darkk 8th.
