RCL LogoMoving into the semis!

Our top-flight bye week teams are now unleashed, which means we need some #1 and #2 seed upsets!  Nice work to the teams moving on through the playoffs, as my disappointing year in the RCLs is mercifully over.  No more reaches or drafting hurt guys!  Dead to me KD, dead!  Slim Reapered yourself!

Check out how your teams stacked up in the final 2014-15 RCL Master Standings table, and here’s how the action went down in first week of the playoffs across our 12 RCL Leagues:

JB’s Random Commenter League – Yo, Jooooooonnnnaassss, did knocking me out of the playoffs make up for the two losses in the REL?  I’m just shocked my REL team is still alive!  About to be murdered though… Nice will and you’ll face #Occupy DGreen in the semis with Hayward Ginobili moving on as well to try and upset #1 Metal Face Doom.

EmasculatingHoopsLozengesRCL – The top seeds won out, with #4 Hibbert Forever set to face Drew says ‘#KD2DC!’ and #3 Cronos’s Team ready for the Barking BassetHounds.  It’s like this year’s March Madness!  Almost only top teams from the big divisions moving on!

Slim’s RCL – Upset central!  Both the #5 and #6 won, but #5 Smooth Like Butter surely will have their work cut out for them vs. Slim – Razzball.  Butter won’t make Slim slim!  …like a kryptonite…?  No…?  The winner of that matchup will get #2 Moscow Spartakers or #6 Hibbert Forever in the final.

Hoops fanatics only league – #1 seed Injuries Fo Dayz will have to keep up their big run against #5 Super Splash Bros with #2 Medley getting another Hibbert Forever, the #6 seed. So many Hibberts!  Nice run in the RCLs man!

Razzball League Awesome – The Hibberts never end!  #1 Hibbert Forever who locked up the best regular season in the final week gets #5 02NBAChampsSacKings and #3 dan’s buzzer beaters moved on through the first round to try and upset #2 AWESOM-O.

Take On The Jay(Wrong) – Well, time for #2 overall RCL team Pops’s Team to go after the overall title going up against 4th seed The Appalachians 2.  Let’s do this, Appalachia!  But don’t count out #2 seed My dog Lucy who had an unreal 2nd half.  They’ve got to beat Hibbert Forever (attack of the clones!) to advance.

JB vs. Slim – Well, the league I crapped the bed in sees #2 seed Primo Pasta’s MVP vs. Hairbooze and #1 razzball rookie taking on #4 Daddy Swag.  Swag beat Slim’s team in the quarterfinals, and what did Slim’s team have in common with my non playoff team?!  Kevin Durant!

Take on SethDaSportsMan – #1 seed Cronos’s Team steamrolled in the regular season, but will have a tough contest against #4 Bloopers.  #2 GottaBasketballJones and #3 Mas Gasolina face off to take on the winner.  Let’s upset Cronos, Sethers!

Kap vs. Razzball – 5th overall team Drew Holiday has been the favorite all year, and will take on #5 seen Connor’s Team to try and win the league.  #2 Old Navy 8 gets a very awesomely named #3 seed that I don’t think I’ve mentioned before – My Heart will Goran!  You eschew that Celine Dion, eschew it!

Razzball Snipers – Aight RCL Nation, all eyes on the Akron Lebrons who leads the RCL field and needs to be upset for any other team to win.  You can do this #4 seed Hannover Hotspurs!  You just have to believe!  If Akron advances, they’ll face the winner of #2 Prestige Worldwide vs. #6 If All Ellis Fails.

Jedball – A strong year for micoolj79’s Team, as they’ll need a few losses up top to have the #3 overall regular season finish nab a title.  Mico’s got #5 seed Uncle Drew, and the winner will take #2 ReasoNoahble Doubt vs. #6 Duncan’s Donuts.  The 5 and 6 moving on!  A league built for upsets…

Latecomers! – Another league with 5 and 6 seeds advancing! #1 seed Men lie women lie gets #5 Who’s Wondrous Team (who?!) and #2 Brixton Guns will be up against #6 Middle Tier All-star.  Need you to be a top-tier all-star to pull off the #6 league title!


Thanks again for playing in 14-15 RCLs and good luck to your squads in Week 2 of the playoffs!

    What’s up

    Going up against harden and westbrook and need all the help I can get. If big Al Jefferson is out for a bit is he droppable in keepers? Or greg Monroe?

    We keep 8..here is my team

    Conley/thompson/jefferon/Leonard/mirotic/middleton/d green/whiteside/Dieng/monroe/teague/griffin/bledsoe/ariza/oladipo

    Anything to win I guess…can I afford it?

      JB Gilpin says:

      @slimbo: What’s good man? Geez, another team got to pair those two?! Unfair. Eeesh, 8 keepers to give Big Al away… Def think Monroe is more droppable even though Al is way on the way down. Although Whiteside is a nice keeper to help up front. I’d wait for Monroe’s status tonight, if he’s out again I think I’d lose him to try and help and hope Jefferson only misses 1

        @JB Gilpin:

        Thx a bunch! Pretty sure monroe is out mehhh

        Just a quicky for another league…

        Drop allen for Covington?

          JB Gilpin says:

          @slimbo: Yup just saw that, yikes. I think he can go. Daily moves in that other league? Love covington tonight (starting, no j-rich), but past that would prob take safety of allen

    Thanks for the s/o re #myheartwillgoran

    3 leagues and got 3 into the playoffs AND both my RCL teams advancing makes me think this has been a very good season no matter what happens rest of the way.

    Cheers to this community. Even the smalktalk in the RCL leagues is pretty much talk w no smack vs my FFL where on week 22 No one is friends or familial anymore.

      @sam: Awesome work man! Def love that team name.

      Haha yeah fantasy especially when you know everyone can get pretty brutal. When my buddy won baseball last year on the final day of a roto, he got some mad drunk texts haha

    If my team in the REL was actually planning on competing this year my RCL win definitely wouldn’t have made up for it. As it is though this was my REL tanking year so the RCL win more than makes up for it. I’ll add that the REL matchups were a lot closer too, haha.

    On a side note, I hate the way Yahoo does lineups. The pick up a player and he’s not on your roster till the next day thing. The week it seems to take for a trade to go through and actually show up in your lineup. But mostly, right now, the way changing your lineup for today basically erases any future lineup changes you’ve made. I set my lineup for this week’s RCL matchup on Sunday afternoon. Then Sunday night I took Noel out of the lineup for Sundays game. I looked at my Monday lineup when I got home from work on Monday, at 8PM to see my lineup not set and already locked. Screw you Yahoo! Thankfully it’s a short schedule day and George didn’t play so I only lost Brooks double double. Let’s hope that’s not the difference in my matchup this week.

    I’m sure you’ve got lots of sympathy for me, right JB? Haha.

      JB Gilpin says:

      @A Hill O’ Beans: Hah yeah my team was pretty bad. My big men punt, which had been rolling through everyone in the second half, didn’t work this time out. Also you might have the best team.

      Yeah I don’t like that it sometimes doesn’t save it either, I feel like usually it does for down the road, maybe it’s after pickups I dunno… I just check every day since I’m paranoid so I’m not sure exactly how it works.

    Akron Lebrons looks strong JB, real strong.
    I think it got away from me the last couple of weeks.
    Frigging baseball, 7 leagues including a Nfbc 50 round slow draft.

      @Pops: Hah yeah this is a mad hectic time of year, wrapping up hoops, starting baseball and march madness. Just need Akron to have one tough week man!
