I have a bad feeling for this season. We'll see.

But for now, do not forget to pledge for the media center (I almost forgot myself). I have sent the invites to the last managers.

My god, who are these poor managers who might lose against my poor duckies ?

I have two players of 30 years. One already wants to retire at the end of this season. He offers not to retire. We will keep taking as his salary is quite high with 92k per week, second highest of my team. I told him that I consider if helps me win these five matches with at least 5 interceptions.

He replied that we first play the Ducks and that he intends to produce these five interceptions directly then.

Those duck wide receivers will show him that he is not all that. Keep dreaming, Fredi !

Last season 11-5 was projected in the playoffs over 12-4, but oooooh, once Rufio has the higher projected record suddenly playoff seeds followed logic.

The league is going 257-255, though, so good job us being above .500!

Edit: last season we were projected to go 258-254, though, so we're slipping.

Rufio Rankings, Ranked.

Rufio has been doing power rankings since S40, and projected records since S41. So, let's all make fun of his terrible predictions. First things first, this was actually a lot of fun to do because I was scrolling through 6 seasons of forums activity and got a few laughs from things I'd forgotten about. Plus, Rufio is really, epically, bad at this which makes going through it even more entertaining.

S40
No projected records, but eventual champion Bridges were preseason #26. Not off to a great start. They defeated preseason #10 Ptdoc. Oof, that's bad ranking.
1/6 on AC playoff teams. That's not a typo. 1 out of 6.
5/6 NC playoff teams.

Final Grade:
0.5 Swayzes for predictions.

At least his failures were funny, though, so begrudgingly
5 Swayzes for commentary.


S41
Eventual champion Bridges were preseason #5. Slightly better start. They defeated preseason #10 Bobbers. Oof, that's bad ranking. Hey, at least I could just copy and paste most of this.
4/6 on AC playoff teams.
5/6 NC playoff teams.
Average absolute difference in Win projections: 1.7 difference per team, no team was more than 4 away from Rufio's projection.

Final Grade:
4 Swayzes for predictions. Decent win predictions, but #5 vs #10 isn't nailing it.

Commentary still had funnies, but the story line of the S41 forums was Mediacenter, and Rufio really lacked a presence in the headline discussion. However, he did instigate the Mid Season Swayze Awards in S41, so
5 Swayzes for commentary.

S42
Eventual champion Malones were preseason #5. Slightly better start. They defeated preseason #14 Hell Hounds. Oof, that's bad ranking. Hey, at least I could just copy and paste most of this.
4/6 on AC playoff teams.
5/6 NC playoff teams.
Average absolute difference in Win projections: 1.5 difference. Rufio's largest miss came this season. Buzi was -6 from Rufio's projection, meanwhile Rio was +5.

Final Grade:
3.5 Swayzes for predictions.

Commentary started to slip a bit, including blasphemously calling Scorigami "worthless" (gasps) in the initial power rankings. But, with Buzi as a crutch Rufio kept relevant.
3.5 Swayzes for commentary.

S43
Eventual champion TiCats were preseason #9. Uh oh. They defeated preseason #4 Kanar. Hey, that's kind of close!
4/6 on AC playoff teams.
5/6 NC playoff teams.
Average absolute difference in Win projections: 2.3 difference! Owie! Rufio's other largest miss came this season. March of the Elephants for +6 from Rufio's projection, meanwhile Stizz was -5 and Yorkies were +5.

Final Grade:
2 Swayzes for predictions. #9 winning it all plus those massive misses are just too much to come back from for having fourth ranked team in the bowl.

Commentary continued to spiral, as the first post wasn't until page 3 of the forums. Plus he called me a liar. These hips don't lie.
2.5 Swayzes for commentary.

S44
Eventual champion Blitz were preseason #9. Uh oh. They defeated preseason #12 Yorkies. Oof, that's bad ranking. Hey, at least I could just copy and paste most of this.
4/6 on AC playoff teams.
4/6 NC playoff teams.
Average absolute difference in Win projections: 1.9 difference. Rufio's biggest misses were Green Mark (-5) and Motol (+5)

Final Grade:
1.5 Swayzes for predictions.

Commentary: 27 posts, the man is washed up.
2 Swayzes for commentary.

S45
Eventual champion Yorkies were preseason #8. Uh oh-ish. They defeated preseason #4 Malones. Kind of close!
5/6 on AC playoff teams.
5/6 NC playoff teams.
1/4 on Conf Championship participants.
Average absolute difference in Win projections: 1.8 difference. Rufio's biggest misses were Ralph's Warriors (+5) and Motol (-5)

Final Grade:
3.5 Swayzes for predictions.

Commentary: Rufio only appeared in the forums so he could harsh on the Scorigami vibe, big minus. Other than that, I think he posted something once, but I'm not exactly sure. What I do know for sure was that there weren't any jokes written in S45 by Rufio, at least none that were memorable or even worth reading. He probably had more posts trying to sell off his trash players (that nobody should ever buy) in the transfer market forum than actual commentary or wit. He claims it was because of a new job, but he can only lie to himself about that. Yeah, who's the big fat liar now, huh?
0 Swayzes for commentary.

Summary
If you are ranked in the top 4, sorry about not winning the title. #5 is the highest Rufio ranked team to ever win. The top three ranked teams haven't even participated in a bowl in 6 season. The average bowl winner was 10.3, and the average bowl loser was 9. It's almost more impressive to be that bad.

And, the projected win total is probably 1.8 wins different, maybe even 6. A random number generator's guess is as good as his. Besides all that terribleness, he's never had the league go 256-256.
