No change! I fear change!
Triplets! I love triplets!
GC's lovely 1-2-quad based tier system. It's clearly the best!
Kick short against a fast team and long against a slow team. That's a pretty established tactic I think, every team can make good use of a kicker but it's more useful for some (fast, agile teams).
*sigh* stupid formatting, why is it inserting a linebreak?
"The general rule of thumb is to kick deep (nearer the opposing endzone) against slower teams who will cage and kick shallow (near the LOS) against faster passing teams."

Just saying Hi. I'll be signing up as soon as I decide what my team will be called and other minor details like the race.
I'd like to apply for the league with a group of Wayward Gladiators. I edited the spreadsheet as instructed (I hope). What about the Steam group?
But, more interestingly, I see that Jolima has won and tied up the Champs to the deadest of heats. Has anyone done the maff? It looks like Jol and I are +2 on TDs, and Jiiiiim is +1... but no idea on the CAS.

Oh, yes I did win a rainy game against Laneford's Nuglites (despite a really impressive elf-play by the foul ones) and I did count up the results. I was a little confused on whether we only count the opponents inflicted injuries or all of the self-inflicted ones as well. Any word on that? (You can't penalize the vampire's for craving a little snack now and again can you?)
But either way, the results came out the same, with Jiiiim in first and champion, HughTower ending up second and me coming in third. If you're not counting self-inflicted injuries, the balances where +2,0,-1 if I recall correctly, so a close call.
Congrats Jiiiim. I know we're all looking forward to a glorious extra sized victory piece to commemorate your victory now.
My Lizard Vs Desvergeh's Orcs was a very odd game. My skill-less lizards handled the ball like seasoned elves, my skinks' armour was unpenetrable (well, until turn 15 anyway), the Orcs could only roll pushes when it mattered and my Krox passed every bone-head roll. On the other hand though, it took me until turn 15 fifteen to break any of the Orc's armour, the sweltering heat hit me harder - having 8 v 11 players for the entire second half, the damn guard black orcs more than cancelled out my strength advantage and after the out of bounds first kick-off the game decided to give the ball to my marked Krox on the line of scrimmage.
The actual game finished 1-0 to me, the goal a standard skink run-in in turn 3. For novelty factor (and thanks to the apoc) none of my players actually died, although I do now have an ag0 saurus. The MVP also went to a bloody skink again.
Thanks for the game Desvergh, it must have been highly frustrating for you to see my lizards pick up the ball in multiple tackle zones multiple times though.
A rock hitting David Cameron (again!), some very elfy dodging, an intercepted pass, and frustratingly ineffective blocking were all part of the tight 1-1 draw between my Top Brass and Kapouille's halflings. Roll on next season!
Elf Harm were up against Kelron's Deadly Lampshades, who included in their number a gentleman by the name of Morg'n'Thorg; I harbour suspicions that he may not, in fact, have been a dark elf. Surely against the rules? Also one of them was armed with knives, which again, must surely be illegal!
Nevertheless, a strong elven fist to the assasin's face saw him KOd from turn one until the end of the match, and while the big chap did inflict some injuries Elf Harm nonetheless escaped without long-term damage.
Lacking casualties, the dark elfs were unable to stand against the sickening tide of elfyness that faced them, and (aided by the +ST +MA +AG monster witch elf injuring herself off the pitch when trying to recover a stolen ball) the final score was 3-1 to Elf Harm.
That leaves them them in with a decent shot at going up to the championship next season, pending the result of the other outstanding div 1 match.
On a generally related note, but largely because I want to mention it as I'm a smug putz, I'm off to Australia with work on Saturday and not back till the 12th. So I wont be able to sign up for the next season until then. If this makes things too awkward I'm happy to sit out a season and rejoin next time around, as I really can't bitch about a trip to Oz, but if possible I'm still up for next season.
On an equally smug-putz note I'm off to Australia at the end of April for at least a year, again with work, so that'll put a general dampener on my ability to play till I get internets sorted and may well mean I have to duck out entirely due to frustrating timezone faff. I'll deal with that when it comes, but I'll get that warning in early.
Jay, there are several trustworthy people and President Weasel, who have a track record of randomly signing up teams to the approximately correct divisions during their owner's absence.
