Well, Bishball fans, some interesting developments are afoot at the close of the third week of the season. The Eastern Conference is beginning to display some serious separation between one team and remainder of the conference, with one team struggling to get out of the gate, while the Western Conference has two teams leap-frogging each other into first place again.
The Boys of Sunday followed up their week 2 performance of 21 points with an even more impressive showing of 27 points, giving them a three-week total of 57 points. Bishop Morlino led the way this week with a stunning 13 point result - nearly half of the team's production. Waaaaaaay behind in second place are the Crusading Croziers with 35 points, after a 15 point effort. In third with 24 points are the Dubuque Fighting Saints, who posted their best week of the season thus far with a 12 point effort. But all that could change depending on what the Zealous Zucchetto's come in with for their week. They haven't reported, and with time winding down, they may stay in fourth place with 21 points, or jump ahead into second.
*Update* - The Z-squared's published their points post for week 3, coming in with 5 points, increasing their total to 26 - enough to squeak by the Dubuque Fighting Saints and settle in third place.
Drama unfolds in the Western Conference, as the Pertinacious Papists and Heresy Hunters switched places again after week 3. The Double P's came in with a disappointing 10 points, as all the offense was provided by only Cardinal George. The Heresy Hunters took advantage of the weak showing, reporting a thus far season-high 20 point week. As a result, the Hunters now enjoy a slim 3 point lead heading into week 4. The Mighty Mitres doubled their point total with a 12-point week, maintaining their third place spot, just ahead of the Vicious Vicars, who kept pace with a dozen point effort of their own. Rounding out the conference are the Purple Papists.

One team continues to struggle in the early weeks of the season - Küng's Bane. Their manager has reported that due to extenuating circumstances, he's experiencing difficulty in getting his players' data in order to publish. "I'm not blaming the players at all," he's told AoftheA Sports. "They're excellent performers who have a proven track record. This is an entirely personal thing, solely on my shoulders, as new work responsibilities have hampered my efforts to effectively manage." Sources say that he's considering hiring an assistant manager in order to avoid forfeiting the entire season, but as of now, there has been no confirmation from the KB's front office.
