Monticello News (Monticello, FL) – Three more NFFL golden tickets were claimed as the league barreled through Week 12 and towards the playoffs. Four teams in the vaunted SEC-like Lombardi Division are guaranteed a spot in the tournament. The upcoming head-to-head match-ups between the Seersuckers v. Tortfeasorts and Eagles v. Mauraders will sort out the seeding issues. Three of the teams, the ‘Seers, Eagles, and Marauders still have a shot at the division crown. “It all comes down to this weekend. There are a ton of scenarios when it comes to playoff seeding, but we are keeping it simple, win and in baby!” said a confident Tom “8 Straight Playoff Appearances” Criss following his teams dismantling of the Hilliard Flashes.
The Tagliabue Division continues to be a pillow fight with three teams tied at 6-6 and the Flashes lurking at 5-7. The division title and last two playoff spots will be settled on the field as the All Stars take on the Cornish Hens and the Dolphins face the Flashes. “The playoffs start this week. No one wants to be on the outside looking in, and we’re ready to give the All Stars a punch to the balls,” said Hens’ OC Morgan “El Gato” McNeill.
At the bottom of the standings the Miccosukee Nimrods and New Canaan Chrebets will face off in the H.H. Gregg Who Sucks Less Bowl. A win by the ‘Rods will secure the league’s worst record for the defending NFFL Champion Chrebets. “People says there ain’t much to play for this weekend. They are wrong. We have pride. And sippy cups full of milk. And ma’s meatloaf,” said a defiant T-Dub “Thinner Crust” Kristoph.
