    Thanks for that. Interesting to know what the difference came down to. I'll have to take a look again at the Season stats in game. . . I swear I've tried to look there before, and the Season stats are always blank.

Sure they suffer more on the CAS front but they are nearly always going to have a big edge in the TD stakes. Well providing you are not one of those weird Skaven coaches who think offensive drives begin with the ball being kicked to you :) Scoreboard and clock pressure are the best form of protection rats have.
    Ok so stunty teams will have it tougher :) - I think the point I made is valid though. Until you have a rat ogre to help with the casualty toll and/or stormvermin with some combo of MB/claw you really don't rack up too many casualties as most of the game involves running away from fights. This means scoring about 3-4 TDs a game to keep up with the opposition unless you pinch a few lucky casualties. With developed side this is much easier but tough early in the teams development (I'm currently at 1480 and still been unable to get the ogre)

    Sollitus and I going to try to get our (extremely late) last match in later today. After that I better bow out again for at least a season, who knew trying to get a house prepped for sale would take so much time :3

    Btw, I think the sheet was broken due to a sort at some point. I haven't figured out what's wrong yet, but the results on the sheet aren't matching up with the results in game. I'm trying to work around it right now. Please don't use sorts on the sheet unless you're sorting all the hidden fields chaps?

    /Edit, this means I'll heave to trust the tiering put in by Jolima, as I'm not prepared to enter all the results by hand this evening.... which I'm fine with, I might add (thanks Jolima for sorting the tiers out!) but if anyone spots something amiss, let me know! Given this situation I'm going to hold off doing the live draw until tomorrow night (to give people a chance to raise any objections), so it will be held at 8pm tomorrow.

    Just remember that when you do the draw. I want squishy opponent, now I have a few wrestlers you can include block heavy teams like norse and amazon. No undead though, can't recruit them. /footnote, I discovered in the stunty league that rotters are valid recruits despite the rules saying otherwise.

    Yeah, the results are definitely all kinds of messed up now. So far as I could see at the time, though, everything looked correct when Jolima did the tiering a day or two ago, and the tiers don't appear to have changed. At least for Div. B!

    Gah, work strikes back again and I won't be around for the next 2 nights to do the draw. I can offer the draw can being done manually during the day today (ie Not Live) or will have to be postponed until weds night (or done by someone else in the meantime - it's pretty straightforward?)

    Why does someone not just use Docs' revision history to revert to the last working version?

    Well I can offer my services... I am free tonight (from 8pm) and would be happy to host a live draw in the group chat.

    In the interest of fairness if someone else could draw my tier (2) and I'll do the rest, that would be even better.

    I am pretty sure I am in tier 2 anyway, plus I'll be at the swimming. Let's just trust you, Screwie.

    I'll trust you too, Screwie. I've sent some instructions as to how the magic happens ;-). Looks like the draw will be happening 8pm tonight after all! Good luck guys! I look forward to finding my place tomorrow! (please don't make a mess while I'm away!)

    Things we have learned from this evening's draw:

    a) Screwie can't count.

    b) Xenny and cybperpunkdreams have to play each other at some point. That will be interesting. CPD may find himself sleeping on the sofa if he so much as goes near one of Xenny's players.

    c) Screwie really can't count.

    I don't know what the worst is but the best thing is the 3 year old starts cos playing halflife in a painted clothes HEV suit... The blender is probably best ignored.

    I played Jarvis the season just gone; any chance of him or me being swapped into a different division for variety's sake?

    I was trying to make think of a witty remark referencing both HalfLife and Balls2That, but I failed. The crowbar reference was deliberate and hard to spot though... I was just wondering who'd say something first ;).

    This is going to pose a problem. Apart from the aforementioned, Xenny always plays on my machine, as it's the only one she has access to that can handle the might of BB. If we can be moved into different divs that would be appreciated, otherwise it's a 1-1 default.
