philadelphia fellas

The philadelphia fellas are a charter member of the ESFFL. Owned by Fantasy Governor, Roger Johnson, the fellas are the only three-time champion of the ESFFL. They dominated the early years of the league, appearing in the championship game in five of the league’s first seven seasons. They haven’t returned to the championship game since, yet they remain one of the winningest teams in league history with 191 all-time wins entering the 2021 season. The fellas championship in year 2000 was one of the most improbable in league history. The fellas were sitting in third place in their division with a 4-5-1 record with just two weeks left in the regular season. Their only chance at making the Johnson Cup Playoffs was to win their division outright, and the only way they could do that was to win both their final two games and hope the division leading norristown dragons lost both their games. Any tie for either team would have given the dragons the title. The fellas took care of business with a win in the second to last week of the season. The dragons kept things alive for the fellas with a loss. That led to a head-to-head matchup between the two teams in the seasons final week. The fellas won that game by a single point, 60-59, to become the first team in ESFFL history to reach the Johnson Cup Playoffs with only six wins. They parlayed that late season run into their third Johnson Cup Title and through the 2020 season, they remain the only team with three such titles.
Fun Fact: Entering the 2020 season, the fellas are the league’s all-time leader in ties with 9.
