LIFETIME RECORD: 40-42-3
YEAR 5- 2001
With only Coach Mike Weber remaining, the Pilchards
shifted to a one coach team this year. It didn't help. They
started the year with a bang winning the Week 1 High Score, but the
season went downhill from there when they lost #1 draft pick the Edge
for the year and tried to survive on QB's from Kansas City, Baltimore,
Chicago, and Carolina. Another year of donations from the
REGULAR SEASON RECORD: 7-10
YEAR 4- 2000
The year the Pilchard's died. Another disastrous
season, including a seven game losing streak between Weeks 2 to 8,
precipitated the end of the Pilchards JOC (joint ownership commission).
With Great Fanfare the Pilchards ownership took advantage of the
expansion for 2001, with Coach Paola leaving (with a foot imprint on the
seat of his pants) for an expansion team. Rumor has it that Paola
left the Pichard JOC with the threat to bury the team in future meetings
and Coach Weber claims Paola left telling him that he was #1 (although
Coach Weber was confused why it was the middle finger Coach Paola was
using instead of the Index Finger). The Pilchards never got
anything going this year and never developed a winning streak.
REGULAR SEASON RECORD: 6-11
YEAR 3- 1999
The Semolina Pilchards started slowly but ended up in
the Playoff hunt until the bitter end. By the time Week #8 had
come around, the Pilchards only had one victory. By working the
Free Agent Market, the Pilchards went on a mid-season storm, losing only
one game in the next six weeks. Even so, it wasn't quite enough,
leaving the Pilchards to finish the season in seventh place, receiving
the fifth pick in the next draft.
REGULAR SEASON RECORD: 6-8-3
YEAR 2- 1998
The Pilchards clinched the National Conference Wildcard
while setting a league record by winning six weekly high score prizes.
They had the second highest point total during the regular season and
Playoffs which reflected in their finishing second overall.
REGULAR SEASON RECORD: 11-6
YEAR 1- 1997
The Semolina Pilchards, coached by Michael Weber and
Mike Paola, picked Green Bay Quarterbacks with the first pick in the
1977 draft, but still had to hold on until Week #16 before they clinched
a playoff spot. In Week #17, Money Inc. received a visit
from the Pilchards with the winner emerging with third place for the
season and the third seed in the playoffs and the loser getting the
forth seed. With a nailbiter that went into overtime,
the Pilchards came out victorious with a 47-42 victory finishing the
1997 regular season with a 10-7 record. The Pilchards later
finished the playoffs in fifth place.
