Yup we're all geniuses for having won that one on the spread (it was really hard for me to bet against my sub team but you gotta take the points), well I got so many wrong that I'm far from a genius here but you know what I mean.

Chintendo Power!

This weeks BBR is a passive rule (on going till the end of the season).

BBR5 -Twins - an ongoing rule for the remainder of the season. Whenever 2 teams tie each other, they must trade 2 players to each other. I.E. this week Gosbee and Steele will trade 2 players to each other.

Fun Fact: There have already been 3 Tie Games this season! 2 of those Ties involved Ghozbusters!

Bonus Fun Fact!
“The Safety Dance” is a protest against bouncers stopping dancers pogoing to 1980s new wave music in clubs when disco was dying and new wave was up and coming.


Thanks for reading this weeks Chintendo Power! Stay tuned next week for the next Issue!

Random stats post for the week:

The good:

New career highs for the following people (and possibly others, hit me up at the field if you want me to check):
Aislind 62.5 (Prev 41K)
Saleh 42.5 (Prev 23K)
Janine 39.5 (Prev 21K)
Larry 29.5 (tied high)
Ronald Ha 32.5 (Prev 16.5K)
Lydia 19.5 (Prev 14)
Eli 43 (Prev 19.5)
Gabe 39.5 (Prev 36.5)
Kirkland 43 (Prev 42.5)
Kalu 25K (Prev 7)
Jarrod 62 (Prev 44.5)
Finlay 16.5 - finally positive! (Prev -6K) A real solid performance here with an obnoxious end zone heckling crew.

WHAM had 5 players with career bests THIS week, really a 6th as well with Jarrod as a sub eclipsing his best before this week. That is some serious flow!

Near Misses or at least regular season:
Carter 28 - 2nd highest, likely regular season highest (47K in an end of season game)
Agatha 27 - 2nd highest after 29K in week 2 this season

WHAM Ladies – 162.5K combined, by far the best of the week, possibly the season. Shimmoti next best at 122.5K

The veteran lows:
Calvin played with a cast on his good hand and attempted 2 off hand push passes and an overhead pancake catch. Entertaining and high effort but an offhand push pass? Go back to the good hand scoobers!

Don $0, all time low but just enough to stay out of the red.

Kirsten with b2b negative games, so Machina showed his support with his first ever negative game (after 41 games)

Denton 6 TAs, tied career high


Other odd items:

Alvin and the Chokemunks total salary for the week vs WHAM 142K
3 WHAM players that Alvin traded to them before the game – 169.5K

New defensive stalwart Jubba, came into the season averaging less than 1D/game and now among the season leaders at 2/game

Rowdy’s combined team salary the last 3 weeks – 81K, 452K, 75.5K

Finally for the GMs, the draft was 5 weeks and 35+ trades ago but some back up on why it matters despite the constant player movement… Check out the correlation between the teams that had trouble scoring in week 1 vs where they are now after 5 weeks:
14pts – Packman – 10th place
17pts – Shimotti – 8th place
18pts – Rowdy – 9th place
18pts – Chintendo – 5th place
21pts – Ghozbusters – 4th place
25pts (loss) – Steele – 6th place
25pts (win) – Alvin – 3rd place
25pts (win) – Wham – 2nd place
26pts – Joel – 7th place
26pts – Nick – 1st place

Parity takes a while! Also supported by another stat provided by Warren on how lopsided the games have been for some teams:

The absolute difference in points in games played:
W(h)AM! 48 (averaging either winning or losing by almost 10pts/game!)
Rowdy Ricky Piper 39
The Shimotti Kid 39
Alvin and the Chikmunks 37
GI Joel and the Real American Heroes 29
New Kids with a Handblock 29
Girls just wanna get Hung 28
Mr. & Mrs. Packman 26
Remington Steele 13
Ghozbusters 8 (parity achieved, averaging within 2pts/game)

They're coming they're coming. In the meantime you'll have to make due with these:
Peanut Butter (-0.5) vs Nutella

Nutella - (Chunky peanut butter doesn't spread well)
Cheez Whiz - (you can spread it hot or cold)
Hummus v Baba Ghanoush Push - (they're both equally Meh)
Jam - (Mmmmm Toe Jam)
Butter - (both a spread and a dip)

Peanut Butter:
I mean Nutella is good and all but seriously? Peanut butter is the king of spreads.
Cheez Whiz:
but only because I am allergic to Cream Cheese. What actually is Cheez Whiz, and how does it come out of that can? Both are good inside breaded jalapenos
Hummus:
freshly made, with hot off the pan pitas? No question. Although the Baba Ganouj in Dubai was pretty excellent. I only mention that because last year on this day we beat Currier Island and I got a lovely pair of coconuts...
Jam:
raspberry, or this really fine Damson Plum jam my mother makes. Strawberry will do in a pinch. Although Marmalade, when having tea with the Queen, might win the day
Butter:
when your competition has to advertize, "I can't believe it's not Butter" you know you are better.

We really desperate to bet on something aren't we?

It's Week 3 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 the players involved are absent).

Mr. & Mrs. Packman (-0.5) vs W(h)AM!
Did you know that the original name for Mr. & Mrs. Pack-Man was Mr. & Mrs. Puck-Man? You'd think it was because they look like hockey pucks but it actually comes from the Japanese phrase 'Packu-Packu,' which means to flap one's arms around and throw the disc away. They changed it because they thought Puck-Man would be too easy to vandalize, you know, like people could just scratch off the P and turn it into a negative game or whatever. The Packmen desperately need a win, and then along comes Lachlan Holmes off the wait list, doing the jitterbug for W(h)AM.
Side bet: Which couple will have more TA's: Kachina (-0.5) vs Warmanda?

Remington Steele (-1.5) vs Chintendo Cartertainment System
Adam Seaborn's Excellent TPL Adventure finds him on Chintendo this week and Steele has a chance to scout his future player first-hand. Both teams made relatively minor trades, so haven't changed too much from last week. If Denton doesn't throw it away 6 times then I like Steele in this one. Big IF...
Side bet: Who scores more G's: Tyler (-0.5) or Steele?

The Shimotti Kid vs Ghozbusters (-0.5)
Did you see the new Ghostbusters trailer? It's supposed to be a comedy, right? I couldn't tell. Anyway,back to Frisbee...Ghozbusters haven't lost since Week 1, while keeping scores low. I approve of this strategy. Shimotti had to dump big-time salary after winning and picking up Mel D. But they still have a solid roster so this one should come down to the last couple of minutes.
Side bet brought to you by Christian Parsons: Who get's more Total Assists: Old Man Milne or Old Man Loat (-0.5)?

GI Joel and the Real American Heroes vs Alvin and the Chikmunks (-2.5)
Speaking of remakes; it's the battle of two revered 80's franchises whose legacies have been tarnished by recent CGI-laden disasters. The Chikmunks have their Big 3 with a solid supporting cast, while GI Joel runs with a more balanced attack. So far this season Dempster and Wangers have 1D each. How is that possible?
Side bet: Which team's females get more G's: Chikmunks or GI Joel (-1.5)?

Girls just want to have Hung (-3.5) vs Rowdy Ricky Piper
Nick vs Rick: terrible names for ultimate players..."I thought someone called PICK". It just wouldn't be a TPL season if there wasn't some sort of subbing controversy, so let's all thank Rick for creating two of them so far this season.
Side bet: Which pairing will get more G's: Dani and Don (-0.5) vs Kiley and Saleh? (Yes I know they are on different teams)
Side side bet: Will Bryan Kaplan show up? (This one doesn't actually count)
I got my name off a hair dryer.

Correct Week 3 picks:

W(h)AM; no side bet due to Warren's absence (although nice bounce-back by Kachina with only 3 TA's; Amanda had 2)
Chintendo (again lost and again covered the spread); Steele (7-5)
Shimotti; Old Man Loat (11-8)
GI Joel (lost but covered); GI Joel's females (9-3)
Rowdy Ricky Piper; Kiley and Saleh (5-4, aided by someone showing up late *cough* Dani *cough*)
And Kaplan did play his first game of the season.

This week players went 34-38 (47%) against the house.
For the season players are 110-118 (48%) against the house.

Standings (Week 3; Season Total; % correct):

dentonmatthew 6-3; 19-8; 70% (Happy now that I didn't let you call an audible last night?)

Pinch hit stats post today for Norm’s computer issues.

Male MVP
Very close race for MVP this week. I am not sure what leeway is given or if it’s normally just the highest salary.

Jeff Steele came in at the highest salary (again!) but I’m going for Chris Loat for his 1st ever MVP and career high in his 71st game. I especially like only the 1 turnover. Hopefully Norm won’t revoke it.

3 Goals – ties career high
9 Assists – 1 off high
2 2nd Assists
1 D
1 TA

Jeff Steele's stats
7 Goals
7 Assists
1 2nd Assist
2 D
2 TAs
1 Drop

Female MVP
Nicolette Bertsch, also with her 1st MVP of this season and career.
4 Goal
1 Assists
2 2nd Assists
2 Ds
1 TA

Defensive players of the week
The male defensive player(s) of the week are Norman Lew and Rajiv Seneviratne with 4 Ds
The female defensive player(s) of the week are Destin McQuillan, Sarah Granziol, Nicolette Bertsch, Vikki Shimoda, Genevieve Daigle with 2 Ds

Other stats from around the league:

The good:

New career highs for the following people (and possibly more, hit me up at the field if you want me to check):

Old Man Loat 72.5 (62.5) – clutch after putting himself into the gambling pool.
Nico 42.5 (38.5) B2B highs
Finlay 19 (16.5) B2B highs
Anita 19.5 (16)
Alice 24 (16)
Peter Chen 35 (14)
Vince 33 (29.5)

Consensus is that this is the strongest group of ladies. Here is how they have tracked so far through 6 weeks.
Season 8 – 332G (t-3rd), 213A (t-2nd), 153D (1st)
Season 7 – 342, 167 148
Season 6 – 332, 213, 152
Season 5 – 330, 222, 131
Season 4 – 359, 172, 108
Season 3 – 328, 184, 141

The veteran lows:

We are currently averaging 10.7 negative games/week. The previous high is Season 6 at 7.53/week. The best was season 3 at 6/week.

After last week’s call out on the large spread between games we had 4 1pt games… and 1 blowout with Ghozbusters losing by more in 1 game than the combined point differential of the previous 5 weeks.


Other curious items:
Rowdy keeps the rollercoaster going, last 4 weeks’ team salary – 81 (2nd lowest of the week), 452 (highest of the week), 75.5 (lowest of the week), 393.5 (2nd highest of the week)

Really useless stat just for superstitious GMs
Team “x” on the google doc has only ever made the playoffs 1 time in 5 seasons. Current team X – Kachina
Team 3 has won 3 of the 5 modern era championships. Current team 3 - RSJ

Because of my slight obsession with data analysis I decided to take the spreadsheets I made last season as a GM and update them for this round of TPL. Here are the results:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing

And to compare here are the numbers from last season with the caveat that not all of the games at the end of the season were recorded completely:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing

Couple tidbits I find most interesting:

1. Female goal scoring, assisting and total points are all up this season. Still nowhere near 33% but definitely an improvement. (though considering the fact that this season the average female player is probably better than the average male player it’s disappointing that these numbers aren’t all much higher)

2. Assist to turnover ratio and goals per possession percentage are both down this season suggesting that either the defenses are stronger or that offenses aren’t as organized. (the efficiency of Nick’s team really stands as not only would he have led the league last season he is also the only GM who is beating the averages from last season)

Very close race for MVP this week. I am not sure what leeway is given or if it’s normally just the highest salary.

Jeff Steele came in at the highest salary (again!) but I’m going for Chris Loat for his 1st ever MVP and career high in his 71st game. I especially like only the 1 turnover. Hopefully Norm won’t revoke it.


Appreciate the sentiment Murl, but that's not how it works. Steele gets MVP again.

Whoops..late delivery on this weeks issue.

If you haven't seen Ed Kung's awesome TPL videos.
You can see it here: https://vimeo.com/159005191#at=0

This weeks BBR is "Three's Company"

This week's BBR is an optional BBR. If GM's so desire, they can complete a 3 way trade. This is defined as 1 trade in which players move to 3 different teams. The goal of this BBR is to get 3 GMs working together in a trade and not 2 separate transactions. For your troubles, each GM involved in a 3 way trade will get a 10K bonus.

As you take a look at Ed's video you can see there have been a few 3 way trades that occur this week!

Fun 80's Fact: In 1980, the first 1 GB hard drive cost $40,000 and weighed over 500 pounds.

This issue was brought to you by Chintendo Power!

Doesn't sound like "MVP" to me... some weeks yes, some weeks just a stats mercenary padding stats. But it does appear that you are right as I combed through previous MVPs and didn't find any exceptions when Norm dumped the top salary. The digging uncovered some quirky MVP stats for a bonus stats post:

3-times the male MVP has had 7 turnovers (!!) - Jacky, Cam Harris and Ellis
3-times the female MVP has had 6 turnovers - Annika Lindqvist, Janssen and (tips)Dee
The lowest male MVP was 51K
The lowest female MVP was 28K
4-times the MVP didn't score a goal (2 guys - Milne/Norm, 2 ladies - Amanda/Jardine)
6-times the MVP didn't have an assist (all ladies - Erin, Jardine, Vikki and Caro)
8-times the MVP didn't have a D (2 guys - Steele/Tommy, 4 ladies - Jardine, Tulin, Dahlke and Janssen)
Highest male score not to get MVP - 102K Cam Dunning
Highest female score not to get MVP - 55K Annika Lindqvist & Vikki

It's Week 4 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 the players involved are absent).

Alvin and the Chikmunks (-1.5) vs Girls just want to have Hung
Nick has a pretty impressive group of ladies, but I think the Chikmunks lineup is just too deep and will score time after time.
Side bet: Who gets more G's: Nico and Paddy (-0.5) or Stacia and Faulkner?

W(h)AM vs GI Joel and the Real American Heroes (-1.5)
Had a tough time picking this one, so of course it will probably result in a blowout.
Side bet: Who gets more A's: Amanda (-0.5) or Emma?

Rowdy Ricky Piper vs Remington Steele (-2.5)
Steele hasn't lost since Week 2, and I don't see that changing this week.
Side bet: Who will have a higher "Total Assists minus TAs" line: Baron or Denton (-0.5)?

Ghozbusters vs Mr. & Mrs. Packman (-0.5)
Historically 8 points has been the cutoff line for playoff teams. The Pack People have 2 points with 4 games to go. I don't want to call this one a "must-win game" for them...but it's a must-win game.
Side bet: Who gets more G's: Kirk MacRae or Murl (-0.5)?

Chintendo Cartertainment System (-1.5) vs The Shimotti Kid
Two weeks in a row Chintendo has lost but covered the spread. Now they are the favourites...what are you gonna do now Carter?!?
Side bet: Who gets more D's: Destin and Kieran or Mel D and Shimmy (-0.5)?

I'm starting to wonder whether the performance-enhancing effect of the side bets is influencing the results of the games. The house always wins...

Chikmunks / Nico+Paddy
Joel / Emma
Steele / Denton
Packman / Kirk
Shimotti / no pick

Have to say that being part of a side bet scared me but hopefully I made all these gamblers proud
