When the Backroom Division was announced back in 2018, Anthony was one of the first managers to want in. In his rookie season, Anthony brought his team, Donald Trump, to the semi-finals finishing 3rd. He repeated that success the following year, again losing in the semis and finishing 4th. Amazingly, he repeated again, and again lost in the semis to finish 4th. After multiple close calls in the Backroom, Anthony made it to the finals where he lost, but in doing so, secured his ticket to the Champion's Division. In his first year playing with TinCan's best, he co-founded the UA (Unholy Alliance) and secured the top title becoming the 2022 TinCan Tavern Fantasy Football Champion!

Dave joined the league in 2015 when it was initially formed. Dave's teams grew a reputation for starting off hot and cooling down just before the push to the playoffs. In 2018 Forever SoCo was cold enough to finish 10th, dropping Dave and his team down to the Backroom Division. Dave found his stride in the Backroom. He finished 3rd in 2020, and when Manager Kevin Macedo decided to stay in the division to defend his belt, Forever SoCo was elevated to the Champion's Division once again. In 2022 Dave just missed glory with a strong push in the playoffs but finished 4th. We'll see what 2023 holds for the elder statesman of the Champion's Division.

Chris was the last manager added to the 2018 roster in the newly established Backroom Division. He made the most of his rookie campaign, falling just short of the title, finishing 2nd. This was enough to boost him up to the TCT Champion's Division. In only his 2nd season in the league, Chris took home the top title in 2019. From the tipity top to the very bottom, Chris went from 1st to worst in 2020 and found himself in the Backroom once again for the 2021 season. From first to worst to first again, Chris Ditata led the Toilet Bowl Champs to the Backroom Title becoming the first manager to have held both belts. To continue his typical see-saw pattern, he followed that championship with another down year. If the pattern holds true, 2023 may be the year of the Crit.
