My objective is a 9-7 record, one better than the last season, but the competitors are always three great teams.
I would like to stay in Elite another season, but I have to deserve it one game after another.

I'd like a little bit more of consistency from my team , instead of half season white and the other in full black.
My heart is getting old with all this stress...

It's that time again! Time to see how wrong I am!


Rank. (last season's record) (Previous elite rank) Last season result

1. (14-2) PR Chaser (1) AC Champion
Chaser rolled all season right to the championship before his team laid a dud at the worst possible time. I fully expect a Chaser Bridges rematch to get out of the AC.

2. (11-5) San Diego Blitz (9) Elite Champion
Hard to imagine the Blitz winning the championship after such a rocky start. The second half run very impressive as they won 8 in a row before losing the meaningless finale.

3. (13-3) Cheese Modelones (5) Conference Championship
The Malones have morphed again as they finished the season less flaccid even though they didn't make it as far as the previous season. An easier schedule and a Kraken regression has them reclaiming the Monarch crown.

4. (13-3) Willemstad Bridges (4) Conference Championship
The Bridges couldn't get past a Chaser team that was in cruise control all season. They haven't been back to the championship since they won back to back 40/41 with a salary half as high as it is now. At least they have 7 straight Thunder championships as likely will make it 8.

5. (12-4) The Alpin Ducks (2) First Round
The Ducks were fighting for the 1 seed but lost 3 of their last 4 including a first round exit after dropping to the 6 seed. They'll look to reclaim the Sea Devil crown. The schedule is fairly easy after it starts with 3 playoff teams. Kanar says it could be the swan song for this iteration of the Ducks. He's still got the top QB and WR combo, I'm not buying them taking a step back.

6. (13-3) Space Kraken (3) Second Round
Overperformed in the regular season, underperformed in the playoffs. The Kraken salary has ballooned to try and keep up with the rival Malones. Will it be enough to secure another winless playoff appearance?

7. (11-5) TigerCats (10) First Round
Two 5 loss seasons in a row for the Ticats and the ascension of Fire rival Chaser has the Ticat faithful worried. The season 43 champs just haven't looked the same since. The good news is there's just not enough competition in the AC for them to worry about missing the playoffs. The other good news is the Yorkies are gone, so there's one less loss.

8. (13-3) Växjö Vikings AFC (6) Second Round
Vaxjo was the big surprise of last season by not only relegating the Ravens, but winning Sea Devils and gaining a playoff bye. The active leading QB is every stat (by a ton) returns for another season. Can they have a repeat performance?

9. (9-7) AS Roma Wolves (14) Second Round
The Wolves followed up a rough season by winning their last 3 (plus a playoff game) and remaining atop Admirals. Admirals stalwart Magpies re-enter the fray to add another challenge. The Wolves will need more luck than they had last season if they plan on keeping the Admirals throne.

10. (11-5) Chelt Nam Bobbers (12) First Round
"Now is this the year Jonny takes back his crown?" It certainly was! Bobbers are back on top where they belong. Time to start another streak.

11. (10-6) Stone Mountain Hawks 2 (13) Second Round
Impressive first year in a very weird Claymore season. It won't be any easier as Shadow's Aussies replace the Yorkies. These teams have quite the history as they did a huge amount of friendly matches while they came up.

12. (10-6) Dumbarajko Elephants (15)
Like Steve, Dumba also had a rough start to the season before winning 7 of his final 8 games. Unfortunately, he needed to win 8 of his last 8 games to unseat the Blitz and start his own championship run. They get the Monarchs and Claymore again this season in what has got to be some bad Galaxy luck.

13. (16-0) Letaidans Monarchs Champion
The Letaidans are looking to make further strides after finishing their last Elite trip a week 17 win away from avoiding relegation and making the playoffs. They'll need another good season if the Monarchs are going to remain the top region.

14. (15-1) Sydney Rising Stars Claymore Champion
Shadow returns to Elite for the second time in his 4th season. I believe this is the season he sticks around, even without spending a bunch of money. He gets to test his team again versus the Hawks, but this time the games will be quite important.

15. (10-6) Norfolk Heroes (19) First Round
"This season will be even tougher to grab that last spot with the Monarchs on the schedule." Or he could grab 2 wins vs the Monarchs and make the playoffs! The Bridges don't plan on giving up the Thunder crown anytime soon, but they'll be challenged by 2 new hungry Elite teams.

16. (9-7) Highland Wildcats (19)
Wildcats won 4 out of their last 5 to avoid relegation, to finish 9-7 again. Probably a disappointment as they couldn't repeat their playoff performance from season 45. I think they are more likely to get relegated than make the playoffs this time around. The schedule is tough and the Stars mean business.

17. (8-8) Bracciano Lakers (17)
Yashin ultimately proved me correct as he was able to get just enough to stick around in Elite. He can't be terribly happy with how the season ended though. Two losses to the Wolves ended any hopes of an Admirals title and a playoff run. Will this season be different? The Magpies are certainly a big threat to them staying for a third season.

18. (8-8) Long Term Capital Management(16)
Dissolve's rotating team names has now evolved into a football hedge fund. He's avoided another up and down now let's see how his portfolio looks. I've been told stonks only go up, does that mean the Bobbers are going down?

19. (16-0) Bobboy Magpies Admirals Champion
Dell and his Magpies are back after a very short 2 season retooling. Are they just here for the draft pick or are they planning on sticking around? Inquisitive Yashins would like to know.

20. (16-0) Mystics Sea Devil Champion
I don't really know what to make of this team.They weren't really challenged all season, and they Needed a crazy end of game including a 59 yard field goal to win in the Supercup. On the other side, Sea Devils has quite the history of Elite turnover.

21. (15-1) Zombaes Galaxy Champion
Coming out of Galaxy isn't so special anymore, but this team did pull off some nice Supercup wins. I doubt Dumba or Steve have to worry about relegation this season, but this team could be in issue if they come back in 49.

22. (14-2) Pinellas Pikes Dragons Runner Up
The ex-Bandits had an impressive playoff run come to a screeching halt against the new rival Polar bears. I still think they can challenge around an 8 win season and maybe stick around, but that game (and needing to beat those Bears twice for it to happen) has me thinking it's another yo-yo season for Clem.

23. (14-2) Vienna Falcons Thunder Champion
The main question here is: Does this team have enough juice? They are half the salary of the Bridges. Can being a responsible owner win enough to challenge the 2 thunder playoff teams?

24. (15-1) Maykop Dynamos Fire Champion
Maykop make their third yo-yo attempt after going 6-10 in their last Elite trip. There's no region so 2 team top heavy as Fire is, it'll take a lot to break through. Alex has been around a long time and has some some trophies to his name, maybe he'll be the one to do it.

25. (13-3) Midnight Marauders Monarchs Runner Up
A wild end to the Monarch bowl shows the Marauders aren't going to be a pushover. I absolutely see them being a spoiler as they couldn't quite beat the top end teams.

26. (13-3) Devon Warriors Sea Devil Runner Up
Not sure where this team is going to end up. They spent nearly $20M added 10 veterans once they found out they were going to Elite. So if any team is going for it, it's gotta be these guys. Is it enough?

27. (15-1) Lincoln Towncars Fire Runner Up
While they are clearly this season's classiest team, the Towncars won't be taking anyone for a ride. No signature wins last season and his QB for this season is just 21 years old.

28. (16-0) Chuuou Hololivers Claymore Runner Up
So.... I had no idea what a Hololiver was.... and I wish I still didn't. With the Hounds restarting and Helsinki attempting to collect $2B someone had to come from Claymore NC. A season filled with lots of wins, but the bowl shows they aren't ready to compete yet.

29. (11-5) Alert Polar Bears Dragons Champion
Argos has been in charge of the Polar Bears with above average perception for 2 years now. What do we make of a mostly young team with an astronomical payroll? They don't have any marquee wins yet, but they'll have plenty of opportunities this season.

30. (14-2) ChosenOnes Admirals Runner Up
We replace one chucking Admirals team with another. Probably not a great path to sustained success, but I certainly expect a couple surprise victories when that passing game is getting good rolls.

31. (13-3) The Blue and White Thunder Runner Up
A surprise team to come out of Thunder this season, Numerius took advantage of retirements and resets to come out on top. He just started a year ago but has a solid and mostly young team. Hopefully he'll use this season to learn so they can challenge the Bridges and Heroes in a couple seasons.

32. (14-2) Torino Cursed Black Bulls Galaxy Runner Up
The Bulls last Elite attempt went very poorly with just 2 wins. Last season they won their conference without winning the division in the weakest D1 conference. I don't see this season as being a reason to remove the cursed moniker.

Have a great season everyone.

Good luck!

Kraken grabs the 1 seed, adds 1.3M in salary... And rates himself #6.

Not buying it. Although last season he was undeniably the top team with the wins he had, finally put himself 1 in the power rankings, and wasn't the same ever since. You can't avoid cursing yourself like you do everyone else if I keep mentioning it, Rufio.

Totally buying it.


Allow me to fix this for you.

#2 to the PR Chaser after we pounded them in the Elite Bowl last season! Outrageous!

Just for that, we're going to spank the Kraken on Tuesday!

I think my team is accurately depicted in the posts above. I previously posted that my team isn't ready for the big time; I'm in a build phase, not a contending phase. But in the spirit of competition and setting high expectations, I'll predict myself at 4 wins instead of the 2-3 estimated for me but not any of them coming in my division!
Either way, I look forward to learning more about the game as the season progresses, and hobnobbing for a season with other fans of the game.

Easy game for Letaidans tomorrow.

Not unexpected loss today and morale gone to 76%.

Damn that SC group of death.

Another game coming down to the last play. Just means you'll get another W when it matters to end my season.
