This week stunk! I went from the top of the league to getting two lousy wins on Sunday. At least I picked up a Thursday win to get me to three, but this was my worst week yet. Brian and Cumbee had byes and Robyn had to play herself in one game. I was the only one of us who had a shot at eight wins this week. Not even close.
While the Robyn-Parker rivalry had cooled the last couple weeks, she took no shame in drilling me the first shot she had. San Francisco: 34; Jets: 0. Can they please figure out a way to use Tebow better? Maybe put him on defense? Have him punt? Anything?
The next game didn’t look good either. My Rams were up against Cumbee’s Seahawks, and I was already mad at him about the stupid replacement refs. No worries; we got the real guys back this week, and I got my victory over Cumbee 19-13. But those Packers almost did it to me again, this time against Brian. I squeaked out a one-point victory over the mighty … Saints. Ugh. That came with my Ravens six-point win Thursday night against Brian’s mighty … Browns. Two out of my three wins came against winless teams. I should lose points for that, but since it’s my experiment I’m fine taking the three.
Robyn humiliated me again, ripping my heart out Temple of Doom style Sunday night in the Eagles vs Giants game. She became the third of us to win for the cycle.
Cumbee had a bye but still managed a win over Robyn (Redskins over Buccaneers) and a pair over me (but who isn’t beating me this week?).
Brian avenged me with a pair of wins over Cumbee and one each over Robyn and I.
The Win Bonus
With Robyn’s Sunday night win over me, she went into a tie with Brian for the week. Each had four wins. We’ve had ties every week this season. And what better way to settle a tie than Monday Night Football? And what a wild card it was. Smokin’ Jay Cutler vs Tony “wait, what’s going on” Romo. I have no idea how points were scored in this game, but Robyn’s Bears won her the first-ever tiebreaker and pushed her even further ahead of the pack.
Through four weeks
Cumbee has two teams with winning records. Neither of them have a loss.
Brian has three teams with perfect records; only one of them is undefeated. He has a combined 7 wins out of the Vikings and Cardinals. Those were two of his last three picks.
Robyn has five teams with winning records and is leading (or tied for the lead) in half the divisions.
And we don’t need to talk about me and the fact that I have one team with a winning record. At least I have four that are .500!

The Fan Bonus
Every other week fans are asked to decide a winner to a random (No Coast) Biased contest. The winner of that contest gets an additional four bonus points. So even though a player may have a rough week, the fans can keep them in the hunt by appreciating their savvy. Robyn is 2-0 and running away with the league so far. This week’s Fan Bonus Contest requires the players to come up with day jobs for the now-sacked replacement officials.
- Cumbee: I will forgo the insults and say that they probably have regular people jobs. Reffing is part-time. I bet some are lawyers and stuff. I feel sorry for them and won’t pile on.
- Brashaw: Wal-Mart greeters. Only job they are qualified for.
- Robyn: Work at Foot Locker. They’ve already got the uniforms.
- Parker: NBA referee
With the win results and just the win bonus this week, a total of 20 points were at stake. Here are your leaders.
|Wins||Win Bonus||Fan Bonus||Week Total||Season Total|
|Brian (Brown Tea Party)||4||4||18|
