2007 CFL Contest Winners Awarded

Following the conclusion of the CFL season Saturday night, the results of the three 2007 Overtime Central CFL contests were tabulated and the winners determined. The results may shock and astound you.

2007 Overtime Central CFL Pool

PoolJunkie, coached by Gord Hanson, finished with 386 points to take first place, eight points ahead of Victorious Secret. Secret, coached by Jim Fedyk, finished strong with a first place October finish, but fell short of first place overall in the last week. Fedyk was able to leap from third to second to cap the season, finishing with 378 points, four ahead of the Davin Bulldogs who finish third for the third year in a row. A last week finish by PoolJunkie of three points over Victorious Secret helped Junkie hang on to his first place position, which he held since Week 11. The Bulldogs and Secret jockeyed for the second and third place positions the final four weeks of the season after early season contender BigMc_is_back fell off the pace.

PoolJunkie takes home $56 for hist first place finish, while Victorious Secret is awarded $16 and the Davin Bulldogs $8 for their second and third place finishes respectively.

The complete official results are as follows:

1 PoolJunkie – 386 – $56 (coach: Gord Hanson)
2 Victorious Secret – 378 – $16 (coach: Jim Fedyk)
3 Davin Bulldogs – 374 – $8 (coach: Brent Gessner)
4 BigMc_is_back – 367
5 PromisedLand – 354
6 KimchiPower – 332
7 Ottawa’09orBust – 328

Special recognition to KimchiPower who as a Korean national out picked yours truly in one of my most humbling defeats ever.

2007 Overtime Central CFL Hi-Lo Challenge

In one of the most impressive second half comebacks since the 1963 Western Semi-Final “Miracle of Taylor Field” where the Saskatchewan Roughriders overcame a 35 – 9 deficit in a two game, total point series to defeat Calgary 48 – 47, HiLoJunkie rebounded from a poor start to jump into a share of first place in Week 11 and powered to a strong lead, only relinquishing it temporarily in Week 16. Gord Hanson, HiLoJunkie coach and professional prognosticator, guided his team to first place overall with 204 points. Finishing a distant second was Kerri’s Kool Kats, coached by Kerri Hysuick, with 172 points, proving that Gord has taught his sister almost everything he knows. Making a late charge and settling for third was Hi’n’Lois, coached by Jon Fedyk, who finished one point behind the Kats. Contending for spots earlier in the season only to fall off when the picks got tougher were Vote Quimby!, CFL4ever and the Davin Bull Dogs.

Fedyk boasted that he would have overcome both the Kats and Junkie eventually had there been more weeks in the season. Confident now in his strategy for this new contest, he predicted doom for the Hanson/Hysiuck duo next season.

HiLoJunkie takes home $56 for hist first place finish, while Kerri’s Kool Kats is awarded $16 and the Hi’n’Lois $8 for their second and third place finishes respectively.

The complete official results are as follows:

1 HiLoJunkie – 204 – $56 (coach: Gord Hanson)
2 Kerri’s Kool Kats – 172 – $16 (coach: Kerri Hysuick)
3 Hi’n’Lois – 171 – $8 (coach: Jon Fedyk)
4 CFL4ever – 168
5 Vote Quimby! – 147
6 Davin Bulldogs – 144
7 PowerEdge – 86
8 It’s Off to Work We Go – 61

2007 Overtime Central CFL Start ’em, Sit ’em Draft

Displaying B.C. Lion dominance, CFL4ever led the way for every week except one from Week 5 to the finish. Coached by Bill Maguire, CFL4ever finished in first place with 13,306 points and takes home $56. Keeping things close in second place was the Davin Bulldogs, coached by Brent Gessner, with 13,122 points. Brent takes home $16 for his respectable results. Coming in third is SitemJunkie, coached by the venerable Gord Hanson, with 12,676 points. Gord adds to his retirement fund with an $8 payday.

Producing respectable results with a severe handicap was RosterIncomplete in fourth place. RosterIncomplete’s team was in disarray from day 1 when he failed to get his picks changed prior to the deadline and was left with his picks from testing. This severely hampered his ability to employ his game plan and once injuries hit, his team was devastated. Still, had he not flubbed the last week and not expected Winnipeg to lose to Montreal, and therefore Toronto be resting their players, he could have finished with 887 points in Week 19, placing him 157 points behind Junkie, and perhaps made him look over his shoulder. True story.

The complete official results are as follows:

1 CFL4ever – 13,306 – $56 (coach: Bill Maguire)
2 Davin Bulldogs – 13,122 – $16 (coach: Brent Gessner)
3 SitemJunkie – 12,676 – $8 (coach: Gord Hanson)
4 RosterIncomplete – 11,978
5 g’s_guesses – 11,580
6 Jim’s Jihad – 11,266
7 Start Your Engines – 10,335
8 PowerEdge -6,406

OC Jottings

No jottings in the last 7 days. Here is a random jotting.

    Five Inductees Announced For Canadian Football Hall of Fame → Seems like the CFL wanted a part of the Hall of Fame election controversy that swirls other sports. This is a pretty weak field, no offence to the accomplishments of these great players. I think a Hall of Fame should house the exceptional players and builders, not elect five every year from a weak field. This certainly is not targeted at every inductee this year either. #
