 DFFL News -  For the week of December 24th, 2018

 

‘merica’s Team wins Championship

Deficient Orange takes 3rd place

Cheeseheads from Hell wins Consolation Bracket 


Governor's Cup Grand Final at 'Isafjörður, Iceland: - 'merica's Team 45, F T C 32   A touchdown reception by Kansas City RB Damien Williams in the first quarter of the Sunday night game was enough to give the #1 seeded 'merica's Team their first Governor's Cup Championship with a come-from-behind victory over #5 seed F T C in Ísafjörður on Sunday in front of a crowd of 672, as 'merica's coach Andrew Lyons becomes the 14th individual to win the most prestegious trophy in all of sports.

The on-field celebration was subdued after coach Lyons was knocked nearly unconscious in the moments prior to the final whistle when the bucket of what was thought to be clear Gatorade that was poured on him was in fact only a bucket of water that had frozen solid. Luckily Running Back Todd Gurley - who was part of the Gamblers Governor's Cup championship last season ended up accepting the trophy on behalf of the team, and also gave the traditional throat-slitting gesture. 

The American's become the second consecutive #1 seed to run the table, and become the first franchise since the 1992 Timinators to win the Governor's Cup after having the #1 overall draft pick. RB Damien Willaims - who was picked up by the Americans prior to week #15 was named Playoff MVP with 21 fantasy points in their 2 games - which included 152 yards rushing, 111 yards receiving and 3 total TD's

For F T C coach Jeff Gervais, although disappointed, he did get a small measure of revenge as he was able to "accidentally" trip over the prone Lyons on several occasions as he was "allegedly" looking for him to shake hands on the field afterwards

The high powered Frogs - who averaged nearly 50 points per game during the regular season - put up weeks of 23, 29 & 32 points in the fantasy playoffs

 

Vanier Cup Final at Kuril'sk, Kuril Islands Russia - Deficient Orange 59, Heinekins 40  New team name, same results as Deficient Orange wins the Vanier Cup for the second consecutive season and the third time overall by taking down a demoralized Heinekins team 59-40 before an intimate gathering in Kuril’sk on Sunday.

The Orange controlled the game throughout as the Heinekins had no answer for the Orange’s balanced attack with 4 starters in double digits, as nearly half of the Deficient Orange roster had been brought in over the past 3 weeks, making the Heinekins film study virtually worthless.  As usual winning coach Troy Erhman made no comments and did not address the media before, or after the game, as his long-time agent and mouthpiece Bus Cook accepted the Vanier Cup on behalf of his client

 

Consolation Bracket Final at Hlatikulu Eswatini - Cheeseheads from Hell 65, Spartans 52 The Cheeseheads from Hell capture their first Consolation Bracket title in 4 tries after outlasting a gritty Spartans team 65-52 in what became the highest scoring Consolation Bracket final -  breaking the previous record of 106 points set when the Gamblers defeated Mountain Magic in Krygyzstan in 2008.  No word on what the attendance was, as onlookers mostly came and went since the game was played in an open field with no fencing around it.

The game itself was a spirited affair with 14 of the 16 starters scoring at least a point, but in the end it was Aaron Rodgers (442 Yards, 2 TD passes, 2 rushing TD’s and a 2 point conversion = 27 points) that proved too much for the Spartans, as Rodgers 27 point afternoon tied for the second highest individual total in a game this season.
