    This league despite being perpetual is more AV7 friendly than any other league I've played in due to the regular top ups from div winnings to the bank. That is the major limiting factor for high TV AV7. As it is I have 500k in the bank which should last me for a while longer yet.

    My best advice for facing PWeasel's current Chaos team is don't get two players KO'd in the opening turn.

    If you look at the DoD historical results, (as in Champs winners) it seems pretty evenly split down the middle.

    Victorious Race Balance:

    Dark Elf - 3
    Pro Elf - 3
    High Elf - 1
    Orc - 7
    Lizardmen - 9
    Vampire -3
    Khemri - 2
    Skaven - 2

    Nothing for anyone else.

    They are only so neatly split because of Grinn!

    I played a 2700TV chaos team in the OCC this season. They removed four players from the pitch in the first turn of each of their offensive drives. Fun game.

    Grinn is a statistical anomaly and must be eradicated

    Finally got into BB and anointed some new admins! Lowkey, screwie and mcphatty, you all now have the power to properly mess up our league! Use it wisely (if you're not sure what you are doing, ask another admin!). As a bonus, anyone who is an admin gets their name highlighted in red now so people can find them on the season info tab of the sheet. If you need an admin, look there! I also validated games (that had been entered on the sheet. Week ends in 6 days!

    As for my game a few days ago, really should have won, but gave up a draw with classic greedy play. 1-0 up, turn 13, completely surrounded the ball-carrying ghoul on the sideline. Should have just left him there. Instead punch him (cos AV7! Plus ball?), ball goes off the pitch, gets thrown in with only one of my players near it, 2 turns later, opposition werewolf runs it in because i didn't have the players left to get back because they were all in a cage around the former ball carrier! Gah! Lesson learnt - if you own the opposition cage and are winning, just leave him with the ball - where's he going to go?

    Lightning bolt injury to marker and then down the other end of the pitch. A lesson I oh so painfully learnt.

    Congratulations Grinn!

    The Nobz are champions of the Divisions once again.
    I gave away a touchdown on my own drive, scored an equaliser, and then cleared the field entirely of elves by turn 13. A final brutal 9 man foul left Screwie's super-thrower with a niggle and Screwie angry at me - but I couldn't resist clearing the field, I just couldn't. I don't think I had ever done it before.

    1. Grats Grinn!

    2. Boots, this is mostly your fault! :P

    3. PW is a terrible, awful, loathsome person and I will hate him forever for a while. I hate him so much I made my gums bleed. My next team is going to have some very unfavourably-named weasel-themed players.

    How did you manage a 9 man foul? That's some serious shit right there.

    Played a DIV F game against Ethelred's Dark Elves earlier today.

    1400 TV Chaos Dwarves against 1080 TV Dark Elves.

    It went worse than expected with the Elves failing to do just about anything and the dwarves smashing most of them off the pitch.

    Elderil was nigh useless getting KO'd early then waking up for the second half to get KO'd again without accomplishing a single move.

    The first half ended 0-0 as Ethelred's Dark Elves could not elf, failing two passes. I had, through poor choices, left the option to elf out a TD on turn 8, but Nuffle had different plans and was against overall elfiness. I was not able to score prior to turn 8 due to my complete inability to either pick up the ball or make a GFI while carrying it.

    Second half was a cakewalk for me, however, as I knocked the majority of the remaining players off the pitch. Ethelred had to play defensively stacking his 4 remaining players to slow me down.

    It didn't work; I lazily made my way to 1 square from the TD.

    Hark! I hear a hero elf!

    While smashing his players for SPP, I lost two successive turns against the same elf - turns 14 and 15, attempting to 2D block him. A lone lineman with but a kick skill, successfully knocked down my Chaos Dwarf blackle bastards, double skulling each.

    Turn 16 see's him dodge out of his tackle zone, dodge into my cage through two tackle zones to 2D against my ballcarrier, knocking him down and stunning him.

    Now the game no longer seems such a sure thing - being 0-0 and Chaos Dwarves not known for their ball-pick-uppiness.

    With nary a reroll to be seen I filled the endzone with players to pick up the fumbling ball, should it be, and went for the pickup with a hobgobbo.

    Aaaaaaand . . . . . . .

    TOUCHDOWN! Hobgob managed to roll a 3+, smashing my previous games records of rolling <2.

    Chadsexington 1 > Ethelred 0.

    Good game despite the TV deficit and nuffling.
