      I have 3 out of that 5 in my team (Teague, Gobert and Gasol).

      I was keen on Gobert to have a breakout season this year and he has not let me down. Decided to take a chance on Gasol after his foot injury last season and it paid off.

      Flipped a coin between the two Gasols. Chose poorly.

      Congrats to Hersey Hawkins Athletic Club for the win. Far too good for my team. My team flopped badly when it really mattered.

      Great game in the other prelim final as Stowie and Heaver is going down to the wire.

      Heaver leads by 3 pts with Cousins left. Stowie has Jrue and Nance left.

      So typical that I drafted 3 out of 10 disappointments. Horford killing me today and ending my run to the GF.

      Conference 1 has a big game coming up too.

      Adelaide Maggots lead SF Bulls by 68 with Maggots hoping that the lead plus Enes Kanter is enough to hold off Seth Curry, Yogi Ferrell, Nerlens Noel and Andre Roberson (plus Willie Cauley-Stein in overtime).

      Think my peeps are toasted. We played GTrain.

      Promotion relegation situations:

      3 get relegated:
      Definite relegations: @Mick and @ddsaints
      Big game between @rodgo and @dabombers with the loser getting relegated.

      Div 1:
      3 get promoted:
      @costak and @walesy are sure to go up
      @G-Train will be promoted if he wins this week, if he loses, then @LiQuiD_SiXx will get promoted.

      5 teams will be relegated:
      Definite relegations: @610 ; @Jasmine ; @tasho and @crossy
      If @Don_Cottagers loses this week, he will be relegated, but if he wins, @Chris White will be relegated instead.

      Div 2:
      5 will be promoted from conference leagues combined:
      @Belmont383 ; @Auron and @headmandude are all sure to go up.
      As is the winner of @Rad_E_Cool and @maggots
      @Peaches will be promoted if he wins this week, if he loses, then @ViQBoZ will get promoted.

      Great season @HEAVER, I always admire the teams you put together. I feel like we always draft one or two picks away from each other and as you pointed out have played in the semi finals the last 3 seasons now. Definitely feel lucky to have survived this matchup.

      Best of luck to @Rev in this final week.

      If @Don_Cottagers loses this week, he will be relegated, but if he wins, @Chris White will be relegated instead.

      Hi Ant, thanks for all the work you have done this season mate, been very enjoyable! Just was wondering how the sentence above works? Cheers mate :)

      Good luck to all teams in finals this week too!

      its because don cottagers is going for his 3rd straight win this week. If he wins he'll get the wildcard and be exempt from relegation, and chris is next in line.

      okay cool, how does the next in line work? not on season standings i take it ha ha!
    17. anthak
      Yeah it is actually. Chris is the lowest ranked of those not already being relegated.

      yeah no worries mate, i was under the impression that only don cottagers could avoid relegation as he is the only team yet to lose

      I feel like we need to review the promotion criteria from Div 1. Maybe I've only noticed this because it is affecting me, but I finished the regular season with a better win/loss record and greater points for than walesy. However walesy gets the promotion priority of 'rank' due to finishing top of a weaker division. We have no control over which division we land in and division leaders already get rewarded in the playoff schedule (which gives them a better chance of winning the championship).

      I'm fine with taking the results as they come this year as that is what was agreed to before the season started but I'd like to hear people's thoughts on how we handle this scenario going forward.

      In any case I'll be cheering for CK to bring home the bacon this week!
