TPLers - aside from our weekly sidebets, come play Season 80s trivia tonight before or after your games. We'll be videotaping the trivia games for this week's Parity League video (since trading is done).

Two contestants needed per game, first one to answer 3 trivia questions correctly wins one of our freshly minted $5,000 TPL dollar bills (since a win in TPL is worth $5K) - as well as some other prizes.

In the words of TPLer Destin McQuillan - "it's on!"

Betting against my own team for the first time. Need to get over 50% for a change.


Funny, if you didn't bet against your team, you might have hit over 50% :)

As far as I can tell only 1 career high this week even though the games were largely competitive for numerous "play for nothing" games:

Kevin Ha 39.5 (38)
Wang 58 – 2nd highest (61)
MelD 36 – 3rd highest (43.5)

We did come close to an unofficial record, Denton had a 13 assist game… as a sub. As the game unfolded I thought the record was 12, but unfortunately Ellis had a 14(!) assist game last season. Norm also had a 13 assist game last season.

Emma has had 2 of her worst 5 career games the last 2 weeks including a dreaded negative game, but narrowly avoided setting a new low.

For now I can’t update the league-wide stats as they were incomplete for the week (Steele paper stats, Wham e-stats... and I'm too lazy to consolidate)

Quirky items from the e-stats (some of these are as subs, it doesn’t distinguish):

Teams:
Longest possession – Hung 18
Best scoring conversion – Carter 58.8%
Worst scoring conversion – Hung 32.5%
Most consecutive scoring drives – GI Joel 7
Most consecutive turnover drives – Steele 9, Hung 8

Players:
Most completions without a TA – Machina 23(!), Kieran 18, Colin 16 / Mei-Linn 11, Jar 10
Most passes to a lady – Denton 17, Loat 13, Fowler & Grundy 11, Kaplan 10
Highest % of completions to a lady – Grundy 58% 11/19, Gosbee 56% 9/16, Joel 54% 6/11

Now onto the quick playoff predictions:

The favourites: Ghozbusters & Chikmunks. Two high powered offenses that can hang with any team and turn up the D when they feel like it. Alvin’s roster is actually 2nd last in goals but it took them a while to find the chemistry (or just Loated). For Ghoz, Andy has been on a huge hucking streak since Jules came over with 25 assists in his last 3 games. Even with all the hucks (you too, Darrel!) they surprisingly take care of the disc as well as any team. This would be a semi-final match up, so one of them won’t even get the chance in the finals.

The dark horses: Wham, Shimottki & Steele. Wham has the toughest schedule having to open up against Ghozbusters and then play the winner of Alvin/Carter even before getting to the finals. They have great flow and control that can take over and grind down games but they’ll need to step up their D where they are last by a fair margin. Shimottki is the most balanced of high end scorers/handlers but they will also have to amp up the D which might be tougher with the unofficial oldest roster. Steele had a great season and can definitely line up and beat any team but consistency and flow will be a major issue (looking at BC and Denton). Although Steele & Shimottki can avoid the other top 3 teams until the Finals, they have to immediately play each other and send one team home early.

Long shots: Cartertainment, Hung & Kachina. Kirk and Kramer have moments of dominating followed by moments of making it rain hammers out of bounds (maybe that’s just Kramer), lots of scoring ladies if they can set them up. Seems like a stretch for 3 wins in a row. Ironically Hung & Kachina is a first round match up so one of these teams is going to the semis but it will be very tough for either to go all the way. Hung had a long season at the top of the standings, a really great job as GM to stay there all year - they still have the highest overall rank of players. Kachina has top end cutting and hustle D but will need multiple above average handling performances to go on a run.

I think that eighteen throw possession was a throwaway too at the end.

Greetings TPL friends. I was wondering if anyone might have spare disks lying around. I coach high school frisbee and would love to take some gently used flying circles off your hands for use in our practices.
Thanks!

W(h)AM; Gosbee
The Shimotti Kid; Nick and Janine

It's Week 8 of the TPL Betting Pool aka the Soupcan Memorial Degenerate Player Pool:

Reminder:
Spreads will be used to handicap the match-ups (and provide bulletin board material for captains/players).
Note: "Team A (-1.5) vs Team B" means that Team A is favoured to win by 1.5 points.
Another Note: Side bets will count in the results (unless players involved are absent).

It's Playoff time; that awful time in TPL when trading stops and people play to win over playing for their stats [shudders]. Matchups appear to be pretty close this week so there should be some good games that come down to the wire. Meanwhile, Murl has done his best to influence the spreads with his playoff preview. Hey Murl, stick to what you do best: getting D's and being a statsgeek!!

Remington Steele (-0.5) vs The Shimotti Kid
The Brodie Smith game, as Murl has anointed both teams as "dark horses". Steele's males probably have the edge, while Shimotti's females will be key for them. Tough one to call, so will go for the old-fashioned "reverse jinx".
Side bet: Who will get more G's: Elysia and Slater or Erin McMahon and Faulkner (-0.5)?
Extra side bet that doesn't count: Will Ian Lee show up?

Girls just want to have Hung vs Mr. & Mrs. Packman (-0.5)
Two similar teams that are lacking a key ingredient to an ultimate team: handlers. GJWTHH could be another team in a long line of TPL regular season first-place playoff washouts. Or they could win. Either way, expecting this to be a close one all game long.
Side bet: Who gets more Total Assists: Lori & Sheldrake (-0.5) or Young Colin Thompson and Nat Wong?

Alvin and the Chikmunks (-2.5) vs Chintendo Cartertainment System
One of the favourites to win the league, the Chikmunks have a deep and balanced roster. But Chintendo is no slouch and may have a lineup that can take them down.
Side bet: Who gets more D's: Calvin & RT or Kevin Ha & Tim Fowler (-0.5)?

Ghozbusters (-0.5) vs W(h)AM
These two teams played last week and the Ghozbusters won by one. Ghozbusters are another favourite and in order to win W(h)AM will have to shut down their protection grid aka Jules and Old Man Milne.
Side bet: Who will get more G + 2A: Svetlana & Harder (-0.5) or Jane Logan & Lydia?

Rowdy Ricky Piper (-0.5) vs GI Joel and the Real American Heroes
Two teams now playing out the string. If this was Vegas they wouldn't even allow betting on this game. RRP has lost 4 in a row; GI Joel has lost 5 in a row. Somebody has to win this, right? Wouldn't be surprised if it ended up in a tie.
Side bet: Will this be the highest-scoring game of the night?

Thanks!

Correct Week 8 picks:

Remington Steele; Elysia & Slater
Mr. & Mrs. Packman; Lori & Sheldrake
Alvin and the Chikmunks; Calvin & RT
Ghozbusters; No bet due to no Svetlana
Rowdy Ricky Piper; Not the highest-scoring game (was the 2nd highest)

Congratulations to Ed Kung on the perfect week! It's basically the equivalent of capturing a footblock leading to a layout greatest leading to a layout callahan all on film.
Another new player, another new player in the basement. Hopefully Mr. Ferderberererer comes back to make more picks and put Wangers where he belongs: in last place. The lesson here kids: always join the pool right from the beginning.

This week players went 65-49 (57%) against the house.
For the season players are 422-402 (51%) against the house.

Standings (Week 8; Season Total; % correct):

Please tell me there will be betting on the undercup.

Because there's nothing more fun than super unbalanced teams after a redraft.

It's Week 9 of the TPL Betting Pool aka the Soupcan Memorial Degenerate Player Pool:

Reminder:
Spreads will be used to handicap the match-ups (and provide bulletin board material for captains/players).
Note: "Team A (-1.5) vs Team B" means that Team A is favoured to win by 1.5 points.
Another Note: Side bets will count in the results (unless players involved are absent).

4 teams are left to vie for the treasured prize discs, while 6 teams are playing because...well...ultimate is fun and what else are you gonna do on a Wednesday? It's not like the Leafs are in the playoffs either...
Anyway, players on the 6 eliminated teams have been redrafted onto new teams (with new captains as the others were fired the day after the season, a la the NFL).

Spreads posted now...Side bets may be coming later today.

Semifinal matchups:

Mr. & Mrs. Packman vs Remington Steele (-1.5)
Picture it; Sicily 1912. Two boys grow up together in the TPL and spend all of their time together. They are inseparable; one is a master of flicks and hammers while the other is a tireless cutter and defender (and both are pretty good at TPL gambling). Due to family bonds they become ruthlessly torn apart. Yet on the pull tonight, these brothers from different mothers with longingly look down the field at each other and wonder what could have been.
The Pack People have some of the best defenders in the the TPL game in Murl, Bustin and Brunetti, and their hands will be full as they try to contain the BC-to-Steele connection. Packmen have the deeper roster and the edge in females, but the supporting cast of Remington Steele is underrated.

Alvin and the Chikmunks (-4.5) vs Ghozbusters
This storyline will be like the inevitable Golden State vs San Antonio NBA Western Conference matchups: shame that the probable two best teams are matching up in the semis. Ghozbusters just had a big loss as Julian is unavailable due to a tragic subbing injury. Another lesson for the kids: don't play non-TPL ultimate.

Redraft matchups:
Team names in the schedule have not all been changed...

Stray Cats: Rock This Town (WHAM) vs Planes, Trains and AutomoKirks (-2.5)
Cat Brooks vs Kirk MacRae

I O the Tiger (-1.5) vs LA Lach/Holmes Street Blues (Chintendo)
Andrew Fell vs Lachlan Holmes

Hal Johnson's Moustache (-2.5) vs Alyne-diana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Mark
Kramer vs Alyne "Better than Ellis" Azucena

I like how you hijacked the name Loat. It has yet to be changed to "Lost Mark".
