1) All Pro Falcons - With FG not in the mix this season, the Falcons are the team to beat.

2) Death Valley Dragons - Despite great personal bias, I expect the dragons to round out the season much better than they start.

3) Rome Forum - Despite not the best showing last season, Rome should benefit from the change of enviroment in Gold this season.

4) Schuylkill Punch - Not being in Gold is going to make it hard to upkeep the high ranking earned mostly due to bias (partly due to actually having played some "games"), tournament wins are the only way to climb.

5) Corrupted Mayors - If the mayors ever had a shot at Gold in my memory, this is the season, maybe they will finally win the election!

6) Winter is Coming
7) Pewter City Rocklanders
8) Pee Wee Bombers
9) Detroit Dumpsters
10) The Contractors

Nice list. (though this Rome incarnation won Silver last season)

In the tourney I just noticed that the Mayors beat Winter in 5 OT's!

I'm going to try to be a bit more third-person with these rankings than previously, to add to entertainment value.

1) Rome Forum (4-0-0) - With the most games against meaningful opponents, and wins against all of them, it would be incredibly difficult to find another team most qualified for the top spot.

2) All Pro Falcons (4-0-0) - Certainly less tested than Rome, but history is not to be ignored when it comes to perineal championship contenders like the Falcons.

3) Schuylkill Punch (4-0-0) - The Punch are going to absolutely need to take home a tournament win to have a chance at the number one spot this season, tough to get too much credit being the best team in Silver.

4) Corrupted Mayors (2-2-0) - Despite the very rough start to open the season, the mayors seem to JUST come out on top lately, with a very close call against Forum, they are apt to climb this list.

5) Fighting Gamecocks (2-2-0) - This team is 2 snaps from being undefeated despite having a very tough schedule, a late arrival to the seasons doesn't seem to be getting in the way of the Gamecocks charging their way back up to the top, where they belong.

6) Death Valley Dragons (2-2-0) - The dragons seem to be bipolar on offense and defense, if the two can perform in the same game, things should get intersting down the stretch.

7) Pee Wee Bombers (2-2-0) - The new kids on the block have made a competitive showing of the season so far, with tough games already behind them, a push for the playoffs is more than expected.

8) MidWest Crusaders (4-0-0) - As is going to be the case for all the silver/copper teams, they are going to need quality wins against the few quality opponents they have to really make a dent in their ranking around here. A win against a human team and the undefeated record places them here, above those alike them on their crusade.

9) Winter is Coming (0-4-0) - Well, the start couldnt have gone much worse, but the good news, the latter half of the schedule is a bit more forgiving. The quality score-lines against top teams combined with strength of schedule keep them ahead of the CPU teams they share their record with.

10) The Contractors (4-0-0) - With absolutely no competitive games, or real history to go off of, its tough to gain rank.

11) Pewter City Rocklanders (2-2-0) - Whats worse than no competitive games? Having had two, and losing both of them.

12) Detroit Dumpsters (3-1-0) - What even worse than that? Losing to a CPU team.

1) All Pro Falcons (13-0-0) - As the only undefeated team in gold, with wins over almost every other ranked team, the falcons are the clear favorites heading toward the playoffs.

2) Death Valley Dragons (10-3-0) - The Dragons are coming on strong surging towards the playoffs, hungry for a chance at the title.

3) Rome Forum (11-2-0) - Close losses to the only two teams ranked ahead of these guys, certainly doesnt stop them from solidifying their place on another plane above the teams below them.

4) Schuylkill Punch (13-0-0) - As the gold teams work out who is going to settle at the top of the pack, the Punch continue facing low level competition, with only a tournament game ahead to really prove their merit.

5) Fighting Gamecocks (9-4-0) - The play of the Gamecocks certainly suggest that they will win the few upcoming 'important' games in terms of these standings, likely cementing them as the final member of that 'upper tier'.

6) Winter is Coming (7-6-0) - Coming off an impressive win against the Mayors, Winter is certainly working on over-coming their terrible start to the season.

7) Pee Wee Bombers (7-6-0) - Trending upwards, certainly, but seemingly still not over the hump.

8) The Contractors (12-1-0) - The Contractors are going to have to wait for the championship game for their lone chance at climbing these rankings, and it may be more of a fall for their opponent than a rise for them even then, Silver woes.

9) Corrupted Mayors (7-6-0) - A season I foretold as a chance for them to do their best yet, the Mayors seem to be destined for a last place finish in their conference.

10) Detroit Dumpsters (5-8-0) - The Dumpsters do seem to have escaped the dumpster by getting LESS blown out, and managing to seal the deal against their CPU opponents.

11) Pewter City Rocklanders (11-3-0) - The Rocklanders snuck a win out against the Crusaders and edge their way out of last place.

12) Midwest Crusaders (10-4-0) - The Crusaders down at the bottom, could be the "rank wrecker" for all of silver if they make a miracle run in the playoffs, but I doubt they'll show up.

That's true. It really did liven up the forums back in the day. Hopefully, I'll have a real team next season. I pretty much just sent out auto-offers to fill the roster, just so I could give people a real game to play. I wasn't around during offseason, so I couldn't field a real team this season.
