Which race are you playing?  The picture suggests you have zombies.  I have to agree with Tys, and I believe that is the third sign of the Apocalypse.  Get those numbers respectable.  

 

Sometimes, when I play ogres, I will foul before I do anything else if I don't have any boneheads on the pitch.

We're an undead team in 6A. 

 

We started with 12 men/1 ghoul. He went BH on his first received block. We got enough cash for a second one. Ghoul one, again, went BH on his first block. The new one died on the 4th turn of his career when he 1-1d a dodge. Damn it. 

 

We beat the CDs week 1 and got smoked by humans week 2. I had pretty bad dice in the loss but the opponent was also good at stretching me out and taking advantage of his higher MA. This is my first league shot at undead, and i clearly need to work on having such low movement. 

 

I want to foul more- we can't knock anyone down! I did miss an open shot at a turn 16 on a damn chaos dwarf week 1. Just spaced it. :wacko:

Player Spotlight: Baka

 

Position: zombie

Role: Our very first DP

51rjMGmwedL._AC_SX425_.jpg

 

Baka spent his living years supporting the Pharaoh of a rich desert kingdom in his obsession with a series of slave revolts. They suffered a humiliating defeat when the slaves, led by a wizard who was a former friend of the court, escaped en masse. This left a bitter taste in his mouth, so in undeath, he has chosen to play Blood Bowl for an undead squad rather than his Khemri national team. It is fitting he is the first Dirty Player on the squad, as his hobbies in life including whipping and torture. With every boot, he manages to push his own bitterness and failure just a little deeper, as he pushes his downed opponents just a little deeper into the pitch.

MD3 we started getting some results. 6 fouls for 2 KOs, a MNG, and 2 ejections.

 

My opponent and I @abu_abdillah, (and shout out to him for an exceptionally bold t16 foul) will both be submitting this game film to the league office to complain about the overreaching referees. They misinterpreted several clearly clean, accidental face stompings as fouls. Those refs should be sent down to the minors until they can recognize when to pull the red card.

I concurr with Mr @bob152

 

Definitely some odd decisions by the ref and his assistants, I'd be curious if there were any high stakes put on the spread for the numbers of sendings off by goblin betting syndicates before the match

MD4 had more and more successful fouling in a very atypical match. bjjhero is going with an extreme version of the wood elf build with 0 rrs and hasn't had many levels yet. The wardancer we swore to kill BHd himself on a leap on turn 1-2. We ended up harming a -MA wardancer (apoth>>>-MA< well done) and 2 more BH- elfs with no skills make great opponents for a fouling team. 

 

We had our first bribe of the year and our first rejected bribe- the refs clearly heard my complaint last week and took it out on us despite the bribe. Fine then, refs: this is war.

MD5: we didn't get to foul very much, but for the good reason: we were playing a tight match. The fucking fucker ass refs still fucked us though: 2 sent off on 4 fouls with no results. Like seriously fuck off; go referee a ballet or something. 

 

The match itself was excellent fun. @Stomm dark elfs and my dead were both 1290 going in. The match played that way, with a dozen situations in both halfs that depended on individual die rolls. The match broke on a turnover on his side that let me block a cage corner and blitz the ball. The dump off worked to my advantage and then the full contact result of that scrum worked out for Vincent and his Vincents. I love tense matches where every dodge matters to the result, especially the ones where my guys end up making the rolls. He got a 2-turn try but perfect D solved that. GG. 

 

We have a shot at the div title, but we already lost to the one team in front of us, @Gelbekhumies. So we need help. Hey 6A: help us!

MD6: we whipped some norse real real bad.

 

We were able to foul with impunity the entire match. We killed a guard lineman, we BH another guy. We fouled at will all match and not once did we get our card pulled. The agreement we made with the head of the referee union (your brother says hi!) may have something to do with that. It is looking like a 2 man race for DG in tier 6, me and @abu_abdillah. At match end, he has a 3 point lead in the [1 point for foul, 1 point for removal, triple score on t16] system. With 3 matches left, we'll need 3 more matches like this one to take home the trophy, as i have no doubt that abu_abdillah will be focused on the task. SO we will. 

 

Oh right the match. 

 

The first half was played in the rain and quite even really, with our team grinding and the norse pushed into early desperation plays- which they made all of. Like ALL. I think 5 different norsemen dodged into TZs and out into the clear. They poked the ball out and whipped it downfield. I needed to make a desperation play of my own- and wtf, we made the rolls! 1-0 at half. Which felt right as to how the half played but was actually quite dicy at the end. 

 

2nd half we just started clearing them off the pitch. Lots of cas and KO. He was hunting ghouls to great effect but that left us to score with the +AG wight. He was putting up 6-7 at kickoff multiple times and failing KO rolls. We decided to score early 3-0 on the chance of going up to 4-0 but then his guys woke up and made sure we could not. Was closer to a 3-1 end than a 4-0, but we kept it 3-0. The +AG wight had a hell of a game, 3 tds, thanks to the rain.

 

With a complementary draw (a gift from our DG competitor) going to the top team humans, we are now in first place for the division and in control of our destiny. I have no doubt Gelbek will not falter again, we'll need to go 3-0-0. SO we will.

MD7: WEAK. 2 fouls. Our first foul (DP with 3 assists) went 1-1. We played down men most of the match. My half was beset by several turnovers so even with fouls available, we never got to take them. 

 

Match: Opponent played really well with an utterly normal young goat team. First half they severely outbashed us and easily scored. Rain in our half ruined what should have been a draw. The match turned on a 1-1 by our AG wight who opened up a blitz on the ball ghoul, which of course worked, and resulted in a CW who didn't know it was raining to break away with the ball. We recovered but needed to make GFIs to score. You know how that went.

SO dirty git chase is now out of reach as is the division title. Our war with the damn dirty refs is renewed. The only good thing that happened in this match is we got a sweet new minotaur-hide rug for our break room.

Nice blogging, Fancy Fluff awarded. 

 

I managed to get 15 red cards last season, mostly at the start of matches, which slowed down my fouling. Any idea how many you got?

I have kept up with with the foul blog lifetime fouling stats portion of this. Last season ended with a whimper, losing out on the division and the DG. this season started strong on DG and 2-1 on the division. 

 

My war with the refs: at the end of last season they put on a performance for the ages: 4 ejected on 6 ineffective fouls, ending my longshot chase at a comeback win in the Dirty Git. But this season so far, they've been oddly kind. I think the know i get points for it under the current t5 system. They save their treachery for key moments.

Keeping up in the lifetime posts in top post above.

 

So far this season, we're in the running for a pretty competitive DG in tier 5 with a lot of Golden Boot winners stomping around. I don't think we'll end MD6 in first but we'll be right in there. 

 

The season opened with a bang, a really good fouling game out of the gate. Results have been middling ever since but our last match vs undead of all teams woke the dice up a bit. We fouled the dust out of his mummies.
