Cornwall again is filled with boys throwing the old pigskin around. John Welage is seen in the foreground perusing the 2010 Team charts.

Denied in his birthright event, Bruce Reiff tries to find succor in the other football game against Josh Githens but he still hasn't mastered those team charts.

Making Way for the Next Generation ...

The 2011 tournament set an attendance record, as 52 coaches vied to guide their favorite NFL team to glory. In the AFC heat on Wednesday, 44 players paired off, and after two rounds of play, there were ten left standing, as one of the winners opted out. Both John Coussis and Robert Rund guided their Patriots to wins, along with Dan Dolan/Pittsburgh, Chad Gormly/Tennessee, and Harry Flawd/San Diego. In the last :20 of their game, 2009 champ Bruno Passacantando chucked a long TD toss to overcome Rund 34-31, and Chad systematically took apart Dolan's Steelers 39-13. Bruno took the next bye while Chad and Harry played a classic back and forth game, with Chad and his Titans pulling out the 24-21 upset over seven-time champion Harry's Chargers. So the AFC title game was set, and again, it was back and forth, turnovers, TD's, FG's all over the place, until, Chad Gormly finally secured his spot in the Super Bowl with a 35-34 victory. Kudos to Geoffrey Pounder, who went to the demo and won his first two games, before falling to Bruno in Round 3.

The NFC heat Friday brought forth another 26 coaches, 20 returnees and six new players. Close games in Round 1 included Steve Scott's Panthers over Mark Love's Saints 35-27 with two late scores, Ryan Friedman's Falcons topping Doug Porterfield's 49ers 34-33, and Bruce Reiff's Eagles over Josh Githens' 49ers 39-37. The next round saw Brian Conlon's Giants defeat Joe Yaure's Seahawks 24-21, Jacob Hebner's Bucs get some previous year "whoop-ass" revenge on Reiff's Eagles 40-13, and Harry Flawd's version of the Eagles faring much better in holding off Conal Jaeger's Redskins 40-37. Jacob was paired against Brian in the next round and won 26-23. Harry defeated John Conlon 20-15, and Steve Scott got by Bruno and his Packers 37-31. Harry and Jacob, who had fallen to Harry in each of the last three seasons, played in the NFC title game, Bucs vs Eagles, and it was a great battle. Jacob took the early lead, only to have Harry came back to lead by 8 ....but Jacob had the final great die roll, hitting a bomb to the Eagles 2 with :20 left, and popped in a FG to win by 1! Celebrations went off late into the night at the Werewolf Prom that Jacob was planning to attend.

The Final was another hard fought battle with both players in their first title game. With three minutes to go, Chad pushed the Titans into the end zone, to take the lead. But once again, Jacob mustered a great die roll, and hit another long pass deep inside Titan territory, where he calmly kicked the game winning FG! With 11 new players this year, Paydirt is well positioned to continue its growth as the sports genre thrives at WBC.

Chad Gormly tops Bruno Passacantando in the semi-finals. With Devin Flawd no where to be seen again this year, mere mortals reached the play-offs.

GM Harry Flawd gets a rare cheap seat at the Super Bowl as Gormly and Hebner deny the Flawd dynasty it's customary seats on the field. Wait till next year!
