season was almost a carbon copy of the prior year, with the same cast
of characters, and the same set of rules. While most of the play remained
competitive, some members failed to keep up with their weekly play calling,
prompting the addtion of the "Rob" rule at the end of the season.
This new rule penalized players for not getting thier picks in on time.
Another unfortunate development, regarding a very late entry fee payment,
resulted in the expulsion of both Rob and Aaron from the league.
of all the negatives, the season was really quite fun. It looked like
Bam Bam was the clear favorite to win going into the playoffs as he dominated
the league in the regular season. Much to his surprise, a late season
surge by Burnt Weeny Sandwich put Becky into the Superbowl vs. a banged
up Fightin Plankton Team. Of course, you should never underestimate a
Fightin Plankton team; Chris Aubell went on to win his second Church of
the Oblongball Trophy.
I have all the information from this 'historic' season. If you are the

to be an interesting foray into the 2002 season
