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 Pilchards.

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.

REGULAR SEASON RECORD:  10-7
