TMX year end review

The TMX year end wrap up is here, its the country edition ya'll. It was a long ( too long for some we're sure) 17 weeks but it has ended and a champ has been crowned. The new belt owner will be DMC who won for the first time in his ten years in the league!! TMX predicted this in the preseason!! The beer bitch will be Supah P's and the dress wearer with be Equalizers. Lotta laugh this year as always and we hope all enjoyed the season and will be back next year lets take a brief look at each team.

First overall was DMC who had the first pick and was able to ride AP and make some moves to get top D Broncos in a lopsided trade.  DMC started the season off with a last place week 1 and wasn't til week 8 they made their move hopping in the 2nd spot then taking over number one in week 10 and never looking back! DMC also became the first team in history to post 200pts in a week doing it TWICE. All in all a great season put together with a solid draft, nice trades and waiver wire moves. The hunter becomes the hunted next year but the belt is in his possession all summer.

2nd overall was Jaybirds. Second place is a great place to be in and TMX is always staying positive but this team was built to win and questions will be why it didn't. TMX stats dept which is well documented to be run by a crack group due to the budget problems at drunknothings , found out that Jaybirds had the top 3 wrs on his roster ALL SEASON. Those 3 totaled 1,050 points this season!! Equalizers entire team only scored 700 more points for the season!! Jaybirds never spent a day below second place but one has to wonder, how with those numbers, he didn't run away with the league. There will be some soul searching at Jaybirds but TMX is confident he will find the answers to get over the hump.

3rd place this season was Mr. Don't ask him he'll tell you Charlie's Angels. The Angels were up in the mix all season except when they dropped to 6th in week 8 and seemed to be stuck but in week 15 with nice waiver help and some bad management from the teams ahead they made their move and secured it in week 16. Charlies' when not congratulating themselves was often on TMX with having some of the best guys benched in the league. Not sure if making the right plays all season could have led to a better finish? Next season Charlies should be in the hunt and telling the league about it as he does it.

4th place this season was Beach Bums. This is the first time since joining the league that Beach Bums didn't win a week, Just like Cal Ripkens steak, this will not be broken. The Bums seemed to be in a funk all season long (Or maybe it was all the teams Coach K was involved in). They never went below 7th place and I'm sure felt they were one player or week away but it never came. 4th place is by no means a bad season but the two time champs have to consider it an off year.

5th place this year was Slippery Wizards. The defending champs finished strong but never had anything going. A draft that saw them take Lynch, Murray and TY Hilton as the first three guys proved to be too tough to comeback from. Wizards were the only team other than last place Equalizers to spend more than one week in the basement. They did finish 5th on the year which was the highest they got all year so maybe they can build on that (are we counting the play offs too).

6th place for the year was Creepshots. Creepshots was in the mix all year dipping to 6th in week 5 but then controlling the third spot from week 7-14! With a great trade to get possible MVP Cam Newton they look like a sure thing til the week 15 DISASTER. Creepshots chose to sit Cam who put up 61pts!! That signaled the end for Creepshots. TMX did some investigating to see if collusion was involved cuz the Newton benching was that inexplicable but we came up with nothing (Good work Wes Cash)!!  Tough way to end a season but TMX is sure they will be back and will take risks next year too.

7th place this year was Skza's Squad. Skza's did their usual getting points where you wouldn't think they would and starting guys who were hurt.One of only two teams that didn't win a week, Skza's started out in the top 5 but then later in the season when the byes hit and they started more zero's than anyone in the history of ADSL ( #statsbyme)  they were stuck in the 7 and 8 slot where they would land. Next year a focused Skza's could make a run for the money

8th place this year was Black Dynomite. It a season that can only be labeled a disappointment, BD held on to the number one spot for 4 weeks then held the 4th spot looking outside at the money for 4 more weeks only to collapse at the end and end up one spot from beer bitch. Black Dynomite I'm sure is circling the wagons ( see what we did there) and checking their networks to find their way back to the top.

9th place and beer bitch this year is Supah P's. Supah's got hit by injuries right out the gate losing Nelson and Fat Eddie lacy had an off year as the number one pick. The scrappy Supahs found life on the wire and rose to 4th but by week 11 they locked themselves into spot 9 never to rise back up. A rough season for Supah's but they managed to the end and will be back in the mix next year.

10th place and the dress wearer this year is Equalizers. The season they had was for the ages complete with a final week of 46pts!  Equalizers were in 6th place after week 1 then never got pass 9. Furthermore they were in the basement every week but FOUR. Let that sink in as TMX reminds you in week 8 they got a season high 72pts from Drew Brees!! Surprisingly the even won a week. Just an absolute remarkably bad season that deserves an equally remarkable dress. Don't disappoint Equalizers.
