West Fetti vs. Geeked Up

New School was a late cancelation for their match vs. Fire Nation

Mobb Deep is still in nowhereland

Some of Lionhearts (who are on bye) are playing the former Rumble (+others) in a short handed scrimmage..

Recap 12/11/16

Lionhearts def. West Fetti 33 – 14

Lionhearts struck early and often and climbed to a 26 – 0 lead, with the help of Danny’s 3 TD catches and behind a solid run attack. Fetti was able to move the ball but failed to score from the red zone on multiple occasions, which ultimately was the difference in this one. Lionhearts have hit a good stride at this stage of the season, and are playing more to expectation.

Geeked Up def. New School 21 – 18

In a competitive and close game, Geeked grabbed their first win and held on to beat their former counterparts. GU jumped to a 14 – 0 lead following a pick 6 by Mikey B and a 75 yard TD run by D’ante to start the game, but New School pulled it together and almost stole the W.

Mobb Deep has been on haitus and will try to gather what remains of their squad over the Christmas a New years break, though unfortunately Fire Nation was forced to take yet another bye due to late cancellation.


Next Week:

Player Spotlight

Name: Ademar
Team: Lionhearts

193: What sports do you enjoy playing?
Ademar: I love dominating in football, soccer, lacrosse, basketball and swim.

193: On a scale of 1 to Donald Trump, how much do you love Ademar?
Ademar: I fucking love me some me!

193: How have you managed to lead the league in sacks this year, and did you buy Pedro any presents yet?
Ademar: To be honest, the reason why I’ve gotten so many sacks is because when we played against Fire Nation in the finals last year I dislocated the shit out of my finger and I couldn’t play, and all I kept hearing from Malik is how he can run all over us. This year I took it upon myself to make my presence knwon and I shut him down. I had 6 sacks on him and I learned how to use my amazing speed to get by his O-line. I will buy Pedro a nice edible fruit basket if I reach 35 sacks, but you should buy me a nice steak dinner since I’ve saved your ass playing center these past few games my guy!

193: What position can’t you play?
Ademar: I can play any position on the field, I fear no one that’s why I call myself THE SUPERBEAST!

193: What’s the best video game of all time?
Ademar: There are so many but I would have to say Metal Gear Solid and Street Fighter Puzzle Fighter or Crash Bandicoot, don’t forget Madden 2002, God of War, Iron Man XO Manowar for PS1.

193: If you were in a fight with John Cena how would you win?
Ademar: If it was John Cena when he was reppin the chain gang he would beat my ass but PG John Cena is a pussy and I would crack his kneecaps real quick.

193: What’s the world record amount of times you’ve pleasured yourself to pictures of Ademar (in a 24 hour period)?
Ademar: Man I would say 7 times in one day, that’s gotta be a world record cus after the 3rd time I was on empty.

193: Final question – who is your biggest challenge in the league?
Ademar: To be honest I feel so confident in my pass rushing ability that no one can stop me, I listen to Mike Tyson videos on intimidation and it makes me want to kill something beautiful every time. Nothing gets me more turned on that my sack stats!

Recap 12/4/16

Fire Nation def. Geeked Up 27 – 20

Credit to Geeked Up for taking a late notice match a saving Fire Nation from getting yet another forfeit win, as Mobb dropped out late. Fire Nation was able to control the game with a powerful rush attack that cut up Geek, backed by their front 3 and which was just too much to handle. Geeked Up never did give up, and competed to the end.


West Fetti def. New School 32 – 18

West Fetti’s offense continues to roll along, and Bucket has been racking up rushing TD’s as well, and add another W. This sets up an interesting showdown between WF and Lionhearts next week.

Next Games:
Fire Nation vs. Mobb Deep (finally?)
Lionhearts vs. West Fetti
New School vs. Geeked Up

Recap 11/27/16

Lionhearts def. New School 41 – 20

Lionhearts continue to gain momentum, using a balanced run and pass attack, controlling this game from start to finish. Danny backing up the talk added a few TDs, and the offensive line has been clicking. New School did come with new reinforcements, and their team did bring some talent — hopefully they can continue to bring down guys and gain some team chemistry. Alex caught a ridiculous TD over 2 defenders, and earned a mild concussion for his effort. REST UP!!

West Fetti def. Geeked up 42- 19

From the sound of the recap, there were about 10 interceptions in this game, with almost 20 sacks, and still a combined total of about 60 points! From Bucket, “the pressure of Panblanco helped WF get the dub”. Notably, D’ante caught his league leading 10th interception.

Next week:
Fire Nation vs. Mobb Deep (!!!)
West Fetti vs. New School

Looking forward to the FN and MB rematch!
Lionhearts and Geeked up are on byes
Have a great week!

Reggie: What made me such a problem to deal with in this weeks game– first of all I want to help you by restating the question – what you really should be asking is what makes me such a problem to deal with in general? The answer is that the opposing teams CANNOT STOP ME nor contain me – I can play any position on the field, I’m never lacking, there’s no limit to what I can do should out to Master P. But all seriousness I am calling out the other teams letting them know I’ll be doing this and more all season long and good luck trying to stop me.

Reggie: Well my fire is always lit but the thought of losing fuels my fire – I can’t stand it, thinking of it turns me into a beast.

Recap 11/20/16

Fire Nation def. West Fetti 38 – 0

In what was supposed to be a close and competitive game, FN continues to separate from the pack and rolled all over fetti. It was cold and windy; ideal for FN’s running game. However most of their points came in the air, and with the help of Reggie, who was all over the place, catching 2 TDs and adding 2 interceptions. Next for Fire Nation — a much anticipated rematch with Mobb Deep.

Lionhearts def. Geeked Up 40 – 6

Lionhearts were able to set the pace early, finding success throwing the football and having big contributions from their go-to receivers. Defensively, the front line was a lot to handle, as they were able to contain Geeked Up’s option style running game, and the wind handled the passing game for the most part. Positives from the game are Geeked Up’s good attitude, and no arguing throughout the entire game, with only a focus on capitalizing on playing time.

Mobb Deep def. New School via forfeit

New School once again could not bring enough guys to make a game, and MD adds another forfeit win.
New School’s future is still in question, as this week may be the final straw.

Games coming up this week is still TBD, depending on team availability. This will be updated later in the week.

Recap 11/13/16

Fire Nation def. Geeked Up 21 – 0

Fire Nation welcomed the newest edition to the league by handing them a shut out loss. The game, however, was close and competitive throughout, and earned the respect of the undefeated FN. QB Malik credited a fast outside rush, and was sacked on several occasions (Vlad from Geeked Up getting to him 6 times!). It was Reggie who held it down defensively with 3 sacks and a safety, and Bari and Hilton with big offensive contributions helping seal the win. FN is clicking right now, and even with the undefeated target on their back, who will be the first to step up and hand them a loss? Will it be west fetti this week?

Lionhearts def. Mobb Deep 20 – 18

Lionhearts finally snap their losing streak and hold on for a win against Mobb Deep. Lionhearts never trailed during the game, although Mobb hung on and was competitive throughout. Each time Lionhearts scored, Mobb responded, and the game was played at a high level, both offensively and defensively. The only downside was the arguing in this game, which hopefully will not carry on moving forward.. Does Mobb bounce back? Can Lionhearts string a few together?

For now it looked like New School will try to keep their team together, saying they have brought on some reinforcements.
Shout out to Big Al – HAPPY 40th BIRTHDAY!!!

Next Week:
Mobb Deep vs. New School
Lionhearts vs. Geeked Up
Fire Nation vs. West Fetti

Recap 11/6/16

Mobb Deep Def. West Fetti 31 – 25

This game was close and competitive, as WF was able to break through Mobb’s tough defense and score more points this season than any almost all other teams combined against Mobb. However Mobb pulls off another win as time ran out on Bucket and WF, and add another W to their record.

Fire Nation def. New School via forfeit

New School was a no show, and for the second time this season Malik and co. were left standing in the cold.

Moving forward, any team that does not communicate or cancel within 12 hours of game-time will, by default, be on BYE for the following two weeks. This is unfair to all those who make arrangements and plans to give up a part of their Sunday to play, only to have their day screwed over.

As far as New School, their status is still unknown, and for now are on hiatus.
In their place, De’ante has branched off and entered a new team into the league – Geeked Up. Welcome!!

Please discuss with your team the league rules, which are located in the rules section of the site. They should be familiar with our game style before playing.

Next Week:
Lionhearts vs. Mobb Deep
Fire Nation vs. Geeked Up

Recap 10/30/16

Fire Nation def. Lionhearts 25 – 14

This one, just as in many prior matchups, started off favoring Lionhearts, who jumped to a 14-0 lead late in the first half. FN stepped in to a second gear and scored 25 unanswered to seal the game. Multiple injuries on both hands, as QB Malik was limited, and Lionhearts continued to have multiple players out. FN remains technically undefeated running on 3 season

Mobb Deep def. New School 40 – 12

There is little to write about on this game, except that Mobb continues to dominate and had no trouble with New School. The big questions with Mobb is who will remain through the season?
