Something stinks in here….

With the lockout now over and the season fast approaching, your Commish has been working behind the scenes archiving old records, updating the website and planning on putting up a few posts that analyze previous seasons, celebrate recent achievements, and hopefully get everyone in the mood for this year’s dance.  2003 is now completely unarchived and thoroughly analyzed.  I’ve started writing a full piece about the season itself, which isn’t yet complete, but I couldn’t hold back from sharing some of the juiciest stuff I found in my examinations.

It turns out 2003 essentially rewrote the book on stink bomb games.   The regular season featured a record 19 stink bomb performances from the year, shattering the old record of 16 set in 2008.  Also, from week 1 to week 12 there was at least one stinkbomb every single week until week 13, the final game of the regular season, an impressive streak by any measure.   Take a look at the prior list of worst stinkbomb games, and the updated list:

The Old list:  (Team, points, season)

  1. Los Pescaderos, 40.51, 2008
  2. Birdmen, 41.56, 2008
  3.  Los Pescaderos 46.96, 2001
  4.  Brown Trout, 47.71, 2005
  5. LT’s Crackheeds, 48.01, 2008
  6. Rat Pack, 48.47, 2007

The New List:  (Team, points, season)

  1. Crazy Canucks, 38.23, 2003
  2. Birdmen, 39.45, 2003
  3. The GBP, 40.10, 2010
  4. Crazy Canucks, 40.34, 2003
  5. Los Pescaderos, 40.51, 2008
  6. Los Pescaderos, 40.67, 2003

Gabe should be thanking his lucky stars that the 2003 Canucks actually happened.  In fact Gabe’s legendary worst performance ever is no longer anything of the sort, now sitting at a relatively unimpressive 5th on the list.  When one thinks about what needs to happen for a full roster to drop a sub-40 point game, it’s really quite remarkable.

Gentlemen, the bar has been officially lowered.
