The playoffs are now only six teams. Six teams is really what it should be anyway. It was that way last year until I felt bad for teams that wouldn't have made the playoffs due to our unbalanced scheduling last season. This year, there is a balanced schedule and no one has any reason to complain. There is no way I'm cool with allowing losing teams into the playoffs and everyone I've talked to in the league agrees with me, even those who admit they won't like it because it will kill their playoff chances.
I've looked at the remaining schedules, and our number six, seven and eight seeds (after this week) all have to win both of their remaining games just to finish with winning records. Our five seed has to win at least one to finish above .500. Mediocrity is not to be rewarded.
So, there's now a dogfight between Duffy, Bruesch, Schmidt, and Finch for that final playoff spot. You guys better manage the hell out of your squads because this one is coming down to the wire.
From now on, the official position of OklahomIraqis fantasy football is that losing teams do not make the playoffs. Six out of 14 teams is more than reasonable.
Good luck, gentlemen. I've been really impressed with the competition this year. I can't wait to see how it ends.
