Season Review Print

It's about time for a season review after the frivolities of 'Rivals Week'...


Championship A:


This season has been dominated by the unbeaten, yet narcissistic, Team Pogi. You'd never get anyone else in the league naming an inanimate object (can a team even be an inanimate object?) after themselves...apart from the Erickson Cup, The Bob Denny Award, and The John Redmond Goliath Award but apart from that, you'd never see that happen...oh and The Darryl Dawson Rule, the JJ the Tailor Interruption and the Russell John Play-off Gaffe. Okay, I accept it happens sometimes, happy now! Team Porky are being chased down by Angry Birds, who are having a fine season and one of their number is actually slowly morphing into the Red Angry Bird from the game...we'll let you guess who that is! Catch Me If You Can are really poorly named for a team in 3rd, their team name also sounds like like the kind of bad chat-up line you'd hear on a certain hill in Itaewon. Then comes the biggest shocks in the league. The top three from last season are currently occupying 4th, 5th and...sorry, I can't quite see where Wonky's are at the moment...oh, there they are, erm...last. Rats have beaten the Birds twice but have been average otherwise. Strokers have never wanted to finish top but 5th was hardly their target either and Wonky's seem to be suffering a hangover from hell after their Play-off final battering. King Pub have proved the executive committee is always right by maintaining a dignified 6th.


Championship B:


The most remarkable statistic about this division is that Rat Chow (the name stays after last week fellas) are joint top despite having lost 6 matches in a row. They are joined there by Sweet Life!!! How did that happen? Little Sweet Life!!! The plucky underdog and perennial winner of the Sportsmanship Award...I guess it helps using a couple of 1800 players in this league, eh? Vagabonds and The Pain have won the most matches in the division but find themselves in 3rd and 4th respectively. The Troublemakers have found their level after last year's crying, begging and bribing while Jumping Jacks finally decided to elect a captain in the 7th week of the season. The UN was called in to observe the process and to make sure the election of Mark Jones was democratic and fair. The other astonishing thing about this league is that Fireballs decided to put down their pints long enough to start winning some matches...three in a row!!! This team has had the same philosophy for 3 seasons now...drink, drink, drink, lose, drink, drink, lose etc. Dan Suh has embodied the new team ethos by trying to collect as many trophies as he can this season. This leaves our old friends Black Hole staring into the abyss (Black Hole and abyss, geddit!!!, I don't know why I bother sometimes).


Championship C:


Now I know I said Rat Chow leading B was impressive after 6 straight losses...and I know I said Fireballs winning matches was a shock but nothing could have prepared the league for what has happened in C League....Something truly remarkable occurred here, something rarer than a congratulatory tweet from Donald Trump to Colin Kaepernick,...Phillies Pheasants were leading this division after 3 rounds of matches!!!!! Please bask in that glory boys and girl. It's since changed but they are not propping up the rest, that honour goes to the Cats. Howlers are leading the division and have been smooth minus a brush with the Rats. Scandal are second with a game in hand and seem to be using the tragedy of last season to propel them to glory. Frigates are 3rd, which is a minor shock ahead of last season's play-off winners, Funny Shot. King Pub Pisspot and C*%& Tips (their name had to be more offensive this time after crying off "Rivals Week' last Wednesday) complete the division. The other interesting thing to note about this division is the Championship A quality players carefully hiding in the swampy marsh of C Division...Chang Bae, Kiwi, Sheery, In Soo...have you no respect??? :)


I hope you enjoyed 'Rivals Week' last week, well apart from Wonky's. I would like to thank Rickie Ball for organising the schedule so this was possible. We'll hopefully do it every season from now on as long as Scandal are happy to play with themselves on that week ;)


Finally, it has come to our attention that our esteemed leader has been formally asked (can you formally ask something on FaceBook?) to step aside as he is no longer fit for office. Strange how the IPL mirrors global politics sometimes! He is considering this for the good of the league. He may well make way for a younger candidate, a candidate with longer hair and a candidate who can unite the league again by choosing a running mate who has no hair and a limp ;)


Enjoy the rest of the season and have fun!

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT - Mid-season Captains' Meeting Print

Captains!!!!

The Mid-season Captains' Meeting originally scheduled for Sunday, September 2nd, is cancelled.

This season has gone swimmingly so far, and Dom and I realized that we really have no issues to discuss during the mid-season captains' meeting. The only reason we could see for having a captains' meeting would be to give JR Pub Team Pogi, King Pub Seoul, JJ's The Pain and Phillies Pheasants a chance to once again miss out on 15 free bonus points.

So, we have decided to not have a mid-season captains' meeting this season. We reserve the right to call one later in the season, if the need arises.


Also, so that it isn't too much of a shock on the system for everyone, we have decided to award 15 bonus points to every team except JR Pub Team Pogi, King Pub Seoul, JJ's The Pain and Phillies Pheasants.
