DFFL News - For The week of December 26th, 2017

 

Gurley powers Gamblers to Governor's Cup Championship

Orange Lives Matter wins Vanier Cup

Jerk Store is best of the worst

 

Governor's Cup Grand Final at Urumqui, China   Gamblers 50, Spartans 38  The Gamblers (13-2) are Governor's Cup Champions for 2017, as RB Todd Gurley single handedly lead them to their 3rd Governor's Cup Championship over the past 6 seasons - becoming the fifth owner in league history to win three titles.  Gurley's 49 fantasy points in the second highest point total by a DFFL MVP winner since the award was created in the early 2000's - only trailing Tom Brady's 57 points over 3 gamesback in 2011

There was no awards presentation. as coach Jim Gaffney was rumored to be at an undisclosed location - fearful of the potential flash mob that still-disgruntled Orange Lives Matter coach Troy Erhman was attempting to assemble through social media, however nothing came of it, as the Chinese Government blocked much of the local web activity over weekend, and are looking for the OLM coach - although officials are saying they "only want to speak with him", most locals assume he will be jailed for attempting to create an unlawful assembly.  DFFL News is also hearing that disappointed Spartans (10-5) coach James Sanders' freedom may also be jeopardy.

The attendance for Sunday's games was estimated at approximately 900 disinterested, but mostly well behaved onlookers.  The game also set a record as it took nearly 6 1/2 hours to play, as the heavy smog in the area forced DFFL officials to factor in multple breaks so players could change the hospital masks they wore over their mouths, having the play clock reset to 1 minute and 50 seconds between every play, and giving each coach 10 time outs and 6 additional challenges per half

 

Vanier Cup Final at Klaipeda, Lithuania   Orange Lives Matter 39, 'merica's Team 34.  Dispite their coach being a 1000 miles away, Orange Lives Matter (9-7) rallied to defeat 'merica's Team (11-5) 39-34 to win the Vanier Cup for the second time in their history - having previously taken 3rd place back in 2010  It was a tight contest throughout with the Orange finally going ahead for good Sunday afternoon on a Russell Wilson TD Pass  There appeared to be a little bit of dissention amongst the Orange players afterwards, as during the trophy presentation Orange RB Melvin Gordon remarked "THIS {explicitive deleted} TROPHY SURE AIN'T FOR YOU COACH!!!!!"  Luckily none of the 75 or so that were in attendance witmessed the outburst as most had already left during the game.

 

Consolation Bracket Final at Ceske Budejovice, Czech Republic  Jerk Store 21, Cheeseheads from Hell 14  In a game where it was a shame someone had to win, top seeded Jerk Store (8-7)  captured their first Consolation Bracket crown since 2011 with a monotonous 21-14  win over the Cheeseheads from Hell (6-10) before a crowd of about 100 in Ceske Budejovice. Jerk Store QB Kirk Cousins was named the game's MVP by being the only player to score in double digits - an award that Cousins immediately refused.  On their way to the Consolation Bracket title the Jerks scored a grand total of 41 fantasy points in their two games - 8 fewer points than Todd Gurley scored by himself
