Okay then! Cheers Mr Weasel for being a gent about it.
No change! I fear change!
Triplets! I love triplets!
GC's lovely 1-2-quad based tier system. It's clearly the best!

Ugh. What have you done! That Screwie guy, he's a mighty dangerous fellah with them greenskins.
Go kill some balls, Screwie!

I will take this opportunity to practice my goblins' aerodynamics, I think. My other goblin team managed to get two good Mario-style headstomps on Janek's necromantics tonight. :D
P.S. Attention admin overlords! Division 8's in-game calendar does not match the spreadsheet. Can someone have a look at that please? :)
So what youre saying screwie, is that you broke poor groovies calendar? You monster
OK, div 8 fixed, div 3 going. All divisions are checked and running, week 1 ends in 10 days. Get organising your first games!

I hope I didn't come across as a sourpuss in my posts above. Thanks to both PresidentWeasel and Screwie for their helpfulness.
Screwie, I look forward to it. I'mma find a star player with tackle, I think. That sounds like fun. I've added you on steam, so bus me a message whenever really.
Ironically, goblins are far more likely to kill your star player than delves. I hate those green bastards.
A point I did try to make - I even told groovy I'd not take any assassins and I'd refrain from fouling. Goblins get two trolls with MB, a chainsaw, and that ball and chain bastard. Sure, they also get a bunch of slow, weak, fragile goblins but with some luck in the dice rolls a goblin team can cut a bloody swathe right through anyone.
On the other hand, I was definitely planning to knock my opponents down repeatedly, and anyone can get injured if they're knocked down.
Well have to say I'm glad it's a new team in the mix, not an older one. Level playing field and all that.
First match down:
Codsbottom live up to their name in start of season "brawl"
By Ferrus Flannigan
Sulaco 0-2 Codsbottom Brawlers
This was truly a upsetting game for team Sulaco, who sustained 3 injuries in this match in addition to the two touchdowns, and Drake, the Sulaco's star Blitzer looked to be in severe pain from a knee injury as he left the pitch. Now, I'm not a betting man but I'd say that was the end of his career right there - Looks like he's far more likely to be injured again after something like that. The Brawlers didn't get away unscathed however, and 3 of them were injured. While I haven't spoken to them after the match, an inside source says that two will be missing the next match, and one looks like he's suffering from a wrenched knee - an injury that like Drake's, will never truly heal.
It was a much closer game then the scores may reveal however, and the ball changed hands many times, the first touchdown achieved because there was only 5 elves left on the pitch [Sports Gobbo would like to suggest the elf players take some lessons from the undead hordes in avoiding a knock out, squishy little fella's.- Ed] and a catastrophic dodge after the elves daring cage breaking tactic, left the ball out in the open at the half way line. The second touchdown was achieved in similar circumstances, with many elves complaining about the brutality of the ogre standing in midfield.
Sneaking backstage into the Sulaco dressing room, the atmosphere was light despite the loss, Elves were patting each other on the back, and congratulating each other on various passes and tackles - A few linesman were being reenacting the injury causing tackles from the game, and sheepishly admitted to me that they rarely caused an injury in their games, let alone 3. Suggestions that the third injury was actually caused by one of the humans poor footing were meet with stony silence, and I was soon politely ushered out of the room, but while there I saw Drake the blitzer, who had been given his marching orders following his injury.
How this will affect the season is unsure being this early in the game, but I don't think the Sulaco team will be the only people nervously watching the Skaven/Ogre match up this Sunday.
Groundskeepers have estimated the stadium will be out of action for 6-8 weeks while they deal with the flesh and blood littering the field from the last match.
Wow, 6 injuries in a human v helf match? This will be a gory bracket indeed...
3 injuries by turn 4. We don't do things by halfs here in the number leagues! :D
Hopefully this doesnt effect my rats.
The players seem to be in good spirits despite Mr. Hamlyns unfortunate knee injury and their thoughts were best summed up by No.5 Vulgott Head-Splitter with the words "them were brave elfies, not run from Vulgott".

Hugh and I played our D1 Champs match.
End result was 7cas, 3KO inflicted by my Necros vs 3KOs inflicted by his Woodies. The boring part was 2-1 TDs to my Necros.
Turns out my guys have a taste for elf blood, and I think the 2 bribes + wizard induced helped (though one bribe was a dud, at least the wizard did something this game). Also 6 of the injuries occurred in the first half, which let me just cage and turtle while the clock ran down in the 2nd half. Hugh made a game of it though and got close to popping the ball out a couple times, and then almost scored a return TD in the last turn.
GG Mr Tower, best of luck vs your other opponents.
Final Note: The results & standings tab of the spreadsheet is locked, so I couldn't enter the result. Put away your bricks.
@ everyone, especially Hughtower, potatoedonut, Darkwingstalker & Graever - seems I got a bit carried away protecting the spreadsheet, sorry chaps. Fixed now and I've entered the results above for you, please put the bricks back GC! This is also a gentle reminder to everyone to enter your results in the Fixtures and Results tab of the spreadsheet after the match.
