    I needed this to be a draw or WebCole win to stay in Tier 1, so happy to see it turned into such an exciting match *in no way bitter*

    Two Welf teams with 1 TTD machines.

    There was also a period in time where Fumbll had a fad for 7-a-side matches.

    Even then you're talking about 23 TDs in 16 turns... that's an extreme number of Riots and Blitz kick off results!

    The Deadly Rascals [Nec] met the Thunderbox Scramblers [Gob] in Division J's dramatic promotion showdown. First half began with a blitz for my guys, which logically meant that I sent my werewolf to catch the ball. He did so and then proceeded to instantly get KO'ed like a nice guy he was. The rest of the first half was not very eventful and ended 0-0.

    The second half was a little bit crazier. I scored a TD on T13, thought I had it covered only to witness the power of 1ttd for the equalizer. Only a lot of effort and luck made it so that I scored my winner on T16 with the same werewolf that got ko'ed in the first turn. In short, lots of turnovers, wasted rerolls and silly moments in a game where the gods of Nuffle got drunk and partied hard.

    There are 32 turns if that's the combined score [which I assume it is]

    Heheh, I'm sure I'll be back sooner rather than later. I shall be plotting my revenge in the mean time.

    Div J: The Dead Rascals (Nec, DarthZombie) 2 - 1 Thunderbox Scramblers (Gob, Dog Pants)

    The Dead Rascals kick off the season's late fixture with all to play for, and get off to a good start by blitzing their opposition and placing a werewolf right under the ball before it lands. The Thunderbox Scramblers respond and take the plucky wolf down, stealing the ball back and hiding behind one of their trolls. The Necros hold the goblins but can't break the cage, and the stalemate breaks after a little while when the goblin ball carrier panics and makes a run for it. He doesn't get far, and when he falls over a werewolf is there to pick up the ball. The new ball carrier moves around the side of the cluster of players and picks up a couple of escorts. The goblin fanatic manages to burst in on the semi-cage, and while he fails to stop the advance he does slow it enough for his teammates to get in and gang-sack the wolf. The greenskins fail to capitalise on the loose ball though, and the rest of the half turns into an acute lesson in how not to play Blood Bowl as both teams repeatedly fail to pick up the ball.

    The Scramblers kick off for the second half by punting the ball into the crowd and the Rascals use the free ball to quickly cage up and push down the right flank. The goblins prove mostly ineffective against the attack and with attrition getting worse they try a last ditch effort to get the ball by putting their whole defence into the cage. The Necromantics' Flesh Golem cage makes short work of them, and the werewolf escapes the lone standing troll to race in a mid-half touchdown.
    The Rascals kick short for their defence where the goblins take up the ball and shuttle it to a speedy teammate near the centre line. Despite a thrown rock KOing one troll the second manages to lob the ball carrier half way down the pitch, and the goblin ball carrier nips past a ghoul to make a lightning touchdown.
    Kicking again, the Scramblers drop the ball at the back of the pitch in the hope of seeing out the game for a draw. The Rascals get their ghouls to collect as a werewolf races forward. The goblins spring forward and manage to make it to the ghouls, bringing the ball carrier down but unable to collect the ball. The Necros recover again and race the ball to the other half after a quick handoff to the other werewolf. A few goblin defenders are near enough to stop him, but the first one trips as he tries to mark and the wolf is left to score unopposed.
    With mere seconds left everyone expects an attempted gobbo throw touchdown, and the Scramblers' formation makes it clear they'll try to oblige. The ball is kicked off pitch and given to the waiting goblin projectile, the Rascals waiting in a line to catch him. They're left disappointed though, as the troll drops the player and the final whistle blows.

    Coach Dog Pants returns to the village amid celebrations. Not only did the Thunderbox Scramblers survive the season, they actually managed to win a game more or less legitimately. The fat chief is sitting out by the camp fire and he vigorously shakes the coach's hand, grinning disturbingly. Nothing seems to come of it, and the coach settles in for the energetic goblin party, taking some of the thankfully unidentified meat he is offered and fending off a flood of requests to join the team. The best thing about goblins, he thinks to himself, are their low expectations.

    Hi all, Sorry about this, but it turns out I'm going to be AWOL tonight. A couple of options:

    1. I run the draw tomorrow night
    2. Someone else runs the draw tonight
    3. We skip the live draw and I just assign folks on the sheet now

    Preferences?

    Sadly I'm going to be busy tonight until late, otherwise I would be happy to fill in for you.

    Any option is fine by me.

    I'm eager to get started again, so skipping the live draw is fine with me in this particular exceptional instance, but of course not on a general level.

    If that becomes the general consensus, I'll update the sheet sometime this afternoon. You have until 2-ish to object!

    Give me a shout if you need a hand updating cells in the Fixtures & Results tab for the randomiser thingie. It should (fingers crossed) be a straightforward copy-paste job from that test tab I made though.

    Skip it - but I rather enjoy it, so please continue to make it a fixture when possible.



    Oh hey everybody - IF YOU ARE DROPPING OUT/SITTING OUT NEXT SEASON, PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD UPDATE THE SPREADSHEET RIGHT NOW WITH A Z, so you don't end up causing unnecessary hassle for everyone and delaying the start of next season for some people.
    Those of you who have already done this, you're good sorts and I wish you some mild good fortune such as putting on your jeans and finding a tenner in the pocket you'd completely forgotten about.

    Thanks - and also I hope you come back soon.

    Right!

    SEASON 30 IS GOGOGOGO

    Go and find out who you're up against next season. There was 10 drop outs this season, so many people will have gone up who maybe weren't expecting to! I want everyone to get hteir applications in by SATURDAY, I'll chase on sunday, but you'll be missing out by sunday night

    Additionally, we're using Screwie's new 'fixture randomiser' to mix up the order of matches a little (champion AND master coder, eh?). Let me know if you spot anything awry.

    Div E looks exciting this season... two gobbo teams and some nice, thin Norse armour to crunch into with those chainsawed and wrecking balls.

    I feel I must insist someone hire Dribblesnot for the goblin mirror match, and have 3 bombardiers on the pitch at once.

    It's almost as good as my maths!

    Looks fine to me, though :)
