3FL Notes: S12: Week 1 Preview

Season 12 begins tonight!

Can the Brewers retain the trophy? Will the Lightning finally play in the big game? How will THE Haw deal with all of those capital letters? Can anyone else sign up for a Twitter account? Only the 3FL season will have the answers...

It all starts on Wednesday night!
Remember to have your starting lineups set 5 minutes before the games begin this week. Any players in the Cowboys vs. Giants game will be locked in whichever lineup position you have them at 8:25pm EDT tonight.

Coach Thadtotti once again put together our customized schedule. This year divisional games will be played in weeks 1-3 and 11-13 and week 10 will again our rivalry week. Thanks, spreadsheetgeek.

Voting is up and running for the season. It is actually a pick'em game within the league page. Make sure you vote on all the 3FL games before the beginning of tonight's NFL game and Yahoo! will keep track for us this year. And all managers can vote individually.

Here we go!

Week 1 Information

Wednesday Night: Dallas Cowboys @ New York Giants
Sunday Night: Pittsburgh Steelers @ Denver Broncos
Monday Night Early: Cincinnati Bengals @ Baltimore Ravens
Monday Night Late: San Diego Chargers @ Oakland Raiders
Bye Week: None until week 4

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 1:
The first week is always the toughest to predict, but here goes...

Lightning (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
We'll know a lot more about this one after tonight's game. The Bolts have a player in each time slot this week, so that will be interesting. Also interesting - the Corp will be rooting against LeSean McCoy (sort of) and the Lightning will be rooting for the Ravens Defense.

Renegades (-1/2) vs. Predacons
This battle looks about even except for the QB matchup. #1 overall pick Aaron Rodgers leads the Renegades against the 13th QB picked in the draft, Jay Cutler. The difference will be painfully obvious for the Preds, who may need to get used to this storyline.

THE Haw (-1) vs. Baltimorons
Coach Haw is hoping to start the week off right - he has three players in tonight's game. That's almost more than the Cowboys. But with Arian Foster holding down Sunday, the 'Morons are going to have a tough time this week (despite having starters spread throughout the schedule).

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
Neither of these teams was at the controls during the draft, but they should both at least have a look at their lineups before the NFL games begin. Seabass should put the Brew Crew up for good in the late Monday night game (long after bed time). But Coach Coaldog may actually get a phone call from Kendall Wright to thank him for the starting roster spot. Heartwarming. But not winning.

Marauders (-1/2) vs. The Comfy Chair
That Chair logo doesn't look particularly comfy again this year. Just saying. Anyway, Tom Brady will put up some big numbers but it might not be enough to reach the Marauders. As long as Coach Hoss replaces the infirmed in his current starting lineup.

And the game of the week...

Stiletto Stompers (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
What a great matchup from top to bottom. The Stompers should have the lead going into the two MNF games as everyone tries to stay up and watch SpiVi attempt the comeback. It will be a fitting end to a very competitive first week of the 3FL.

Good luck in Week 1 and for the rest of Season 12!
