The Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 12:

It's immediate family week in the 3FL - we have two siblings games and two parent/child games. Sounds like fun!

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Baltimorons
The Renegades are looking to get an opportunity to defend their title while the 'Morons are hoping to avoid the curse. But I'm sure either team would be happy with a win in this battle of the two most recent SuperBowl champs. It's a shame Mewelde is no longer the starter for the Steelers - he could've made this one close.

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Predacons
The Preds have already locked up a playoff berth and are holding down the top spot in the league. The Lightning still have something to play for, and that might be the difference. Along with a couple of MNF starters.

Dumbbums (-1) vs. Rough Riders
Don't look now, but the Riders could leapfrog the 'Bums with a head-to-head win this week. Sure, they may have scored 240 less points this year, but both teams have exactly the same record. Weird. We'll see if Coach Bev can continue to thrive in the underdog's role.

Spiked Vipers (-1) vs. ray ray haw
The haw won the first meeting this year, but that was before Kurt Warner departed Krypton and was picked up by the Vipers. With the way things are going it will probably end up in a tie after a strong Drew Brees performance on MNF. Now that would really make next week interesting...

Misfits, Inc. (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
The Chair still has a ray of hope for this season. But pretty much everything would have to work out perfectly in the next two weeks, starting with a win against the freefalling FitzCorp and their five game skid. Will the best QB for each team be the one on the bench?

And the game of the week...

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Marauders
Thursday night's game factors heavily on this one, with each team having two of their big boys active for the mid-week matchup. And since the hometown Steelers are playing, Coach Hoss will actually get to see it on tv. (It's OK - Coach Brew will be asleep anyway). This one is going end up being very close. Can I change my vote on Friday morning?

Good luck this week!
