2012 REGULAR SEASON STANDINGS
|Teams||Wins||Losses||Pts. For||Pts. Agst.|
|Death Track Dolls||1||0||115
|Smoke City Betties||0||1||100||115|
In the most equally matched opening to a ToRD season in years (if not ever), two tight bouts kicked off the 2012 season. The Death Track Dolls sit at the top of the standings with an ever so slight +2 team plus/minus advantage over the Chicks Ahoy!, but right now the table is pretty tight. The Gore-Gore Rollergirls lost their second straight ToRD bout (dating back to last year’s championship), which is the first time that has ever happened. The biggest news out of the season openers though, is the play of the Smoke City Betties. It seems that the two-year rebuild has finally reached its conclusion and the Betties put together their best performance in years, cracking the century mark for the first time since 2009. They also led the bout at halftime, which was the latest they’d led in a game in three years.

JAMMER QUOTIENT BREAKDOWN
The first JQ ratings of 2012 reveal some very interesting results. Last year’s runner-up, the Chicks Ahoy!’s Dyna Hurtcha burst out of the blocks with an amazing opening bout to the season. Leading the league in jammer plus/minus (+34) and jam percentage (at 38% Dyna wore the star for more than every third jam), Dyna sits second in total points (56) and lead percentage (63%) . Last year Dyna scored a rare JQ rating of 40(only three other skaters in ToRD’s history have accomplished a 40+
rating in a season) and seems poised to continue the strong jamming this season.
A potential surprise in second place is titmouse from the Smoke City Betties, who first (barely) cracked the Top 10 last season. titmouse has struggled through injuries for the last year and a half, but was astonishing in her return against the Death Track Dolls in the season opener. Despite not leading the league in any category, she currently sits second in jammer plus/minus (+30 in a losing cause), and third in points (47), points per jam (3.9) and lead percentage (58%); the most amazing stat may be that she sits only 6th in jam percentage (29%), meaning she accomplished a lot in comparatively fewer jams.
Perennial JQ ratings leader Bambi sits third, leading the league in total points (69) and tied for first in jam percentage (38%). Panty Hoser, who made a stunning jammer debut, leads in points per jam (5.2 PPJ) and sits third in plus/minus (+26) and total points (47) . The final league leader is another Death Track Doll, Betty Bomber, who recorded a 67% lead percentage in the bout against the Betties. Second-year skater Bala Reina had an impressive debut for the Chicks as well, cracking the Top 5. And finally, the Dolls’ Bellefast is the lone rookie in the rankings, picking up points in every stats category to sit 8th overall.
