It's been a while since we had one of these. In an attempt at not offending anyone, I have ranked each team but given them all a coded team name. I didn't scout the scab team, which I would rank 10th.

17. I Don't Know Who You Are

16. Lousy, Stinking, Francophobic, Bacon-Loving Bastards

15. The Crybaby Killers

14. Humorless Meme-Making Feminists and Brian

13. Burgers Fry, Leftists Die

12. The Best Part of Me is That There's So Many of Me

11. The Odd Buffoons

10. The Best of Jordan's Teammates

9. The Communist, the Fascist, the Leftist, and the Genius

8. They Put Their Pants On One Leg at a Time

7. The Worst of Jordan's Teammates

6. This is Fine

5. No, This is Fine

4. The Hart Foundation

3. The Venezuelan Defense Fund

2. Yes, Vomiting is a Great Idea

1. The FBI Director

Is there an announcement somewhere of who's playing on the scab team?

I believe it's me, Matt Lafer, Pranav Sivakumar, and Trevor Davis. 10th seems reasonable.

I was going to respond angrily to the "humorless" part but then I realized that would just prove your point.

I hereby vote that everyone on this team be given the last name of "Rowsdower" in the stats.
