One of the eldest franchises in NEAWL history has been haunted by this curse since the inaugural year of the NEAWL. It all started in the first season when the Weemen had a first round bye in the 2013-W playoffs. Many experts had the Weemen beating the Butter Tongues, but fate intervened and the Weemen lost their first of many playoff series. Fast forward to present day and many people thought this would be the year the Weemen would break the curse. Pitching was not a problem. The Amidon twins were in prime form to mow down opposing hitters. Batting was not a problem. The Weemen drafted what could be one of the best hitters of NEAWL history in Matt Mahoney. Fielding was not a problem. Sure handed Dave Sullivan stalked the grounds of left field. Did I mention the greatest player in NEAWL history, Devin Amidion, is on the team? After a dominating regular season, the Weemen found themselves in a similar position, with a first round by heading into the division championship to face the Bullies. Even with that firepower, they were still no match for the hex and the curse of the Weemen lives on.
Another young, but prominent malediction is the curse of the magic man, Scott Martell. As one of the premiere players in the league, Scott Martell has had a lot of success, just not in the championship. Since Martell has joined the league, he has done nothing but make it to the championship round, only to lose. This will be his 4th consecutive trip to the ship, but will it have the same result? The good news is that the Bassholes are one of the storied franchises in the NEAWL and are tied with the Huskies with the most championships. Both Tim McGeown and Greig Guluzian have two championships under their belt and could perhaps work a reverse vex for Martell. Or maybe Martell could work some of his own magic.
