The Squad gets a bit of mojo back with a win, a single permanent injury and an apo that actually saved our Thrower from death. Dice were solidly in my favor during the first half and then JR made a rather questionable hand-off leading to my second TD and that was about it before we went back to standard grindy stuff and injured some Elves to make up for the first half.

GG J-R, it was a fun one  :)

God damn! Not my day today. My browser just crashed on me when I had a looooooooooooonggg Blood Sports Spotlight match report almost done. Well, what I learned today is that A) don't handoff when you've spent your reroll already on the turn and you really don't need to do the handoff yet and B) start writing the match reports on auto-saving word processor instead of the browser... So here are just some key points that I found the most funny to write 'cause I'm not up to writing all of that mammoth again that I was working on:

- Damn my sultry voice, my sage-like words of wisdom and soothing tone that have woven such a spell of charm that I forgot the follow the match! Well, you tell us, what happened Nippy?
- Erm... Sure thing, mr. Gron. Well, first they knocked out three of them right at the start.
- Yes, yes, I can see that, norse started strong and KO'd the elf front line...
- No, mr. Gron, the elfs knocked out the norse. And then the ref ejected one of the norse. And then the elfs kicked out another norse.
- Knocked out, you must mean, Nippy?
- No, mr. Gron the elf-guy kicked the norse-guy's head when the norse guy was lying on the ground. Oh yes, that did knock him out so maybe that was a knock-kick-ou... kink-o... knicker-out?
- No, no, Nippy, knicker-out is when you hit the guy so hard on the chin that the player flies out of his knickers. Something that every team tries do against the amazons.
.....
- Coach, are you sure you won't be distracted by talking to us at the same time when you're team is playing?
- Nonsense! We Blood Bowl coaches have tremendous skills of consentration, we can juggle many things at the same time! Why I remember this one time - don't bother me, I'm talking to that Grumbundy fellow - one time when we we're playing against ColaChaos and my then girl-friend came to the dugout and started prattling me about things and I just calmly instructed my players and we sma...
- Coach! The ref gave the ball to dog-face two 'cause you didn't tell him who you wan't to get the out-of-bounds ball!
- What?
.....
- ...And you see Gron, the secret to coaching these bone-skulled norse is that you tell them to keep the HANDS OFF the ball and hit hard! And you too it strict! Why, Gron, I remember when...
- Hand-off? Sure thing coach! Oops..
- What?
....
- And the official is handing the MVP medal to the line-elf... Wait, the elf coach tackled the official! He's taking the medal! The official tries to struggle but coach throws a nice haymaker and the official goes down! And the elf coach is now handing the MVP medal to the freebooter-apotechary that saved the elf thrower from what seamed like a certain death. I've never seen such pure joy on anybody's like face like that of the coach who is now shanking the apotechary's hand like grazy! And there comes the Unbreakable Panzer Squad's manager waving what looks like a contract in his other hand and a quill pen in his other hand. Looks like they're trying to sign the freebooter-doctor permanently! But the elf side's current apotechary had come to the field and is now shouting at the coach and the manager... NICE block! And what an assist! Now wonder that the elfs managed to play such a physical game today when even their off-the-field staff has such skills! And looks like the apotechary is injured! He's trying to heal himself! And he's dead...
...


Yep, not much to do on the first half with five of my guys KO'd early and one ejected on the first foul. Still got a chance for the ball when Barmution made a mistake of targeting my Yhetee too eagerly and knocked the Yhetee down next to the ball-carrier who had already moved. Yhetee worked his magic but ball bounced back to Barm. The game was decided on my mistake that Barm already talked about, handoffing the ball. But no complaints from me, I got what I deserved, my head wasn't fully in the game and that's when you make those kinds of mistakes. Fun game still, and it was nice to see Barmution cut his death-streak. Thanks again for the game, it was fun!

PS. Something went wrong with the logfile so no statistics I'm afraid.

Hmm can Hakos upload instead then maybe?

I should be able to upload it later today but I guess TGA or someone else needs to remove the upload from TGA first?

Just upload.. see it is "better". then I can remove the old file without all data.
If it is not better you can remove your own file again.

Hmm, just got some BB-M issue.. it's blocked by my Norton...
Looking into howto fix it currently...

Otherwise Muller had one more of those, BAD games and he was shut down on every turn.
Sorry man, but it cannot rain everyday..

Meaning I cannot upload the game to BBM.
Standing by with this until I see a solution.

Orcs vs. Orcs ends in a draw in a match that was... not extremely interesting. Equilibri might have deserved the win after playing slightly better and getting slightly worse dice, but a draw doesn't seem entirely unfair either.

The way I got the equalizer, though, is probably something I have to file in the "blessed by Nuffle" column. After a series of pretty poor block dice over two turns, my promising drive had been pretty well shored up by Da Frebooterz, and panic was beginning to set in. This prompted a daring hand-off to Kornholio Kromartie, a blitzer, who was in a tackle zone. He managed to secure the ball, dodge into a tackle zone, then dodge free, and then finally succeeding in the final GFI. Needless to say, Kromartie got the MVP.

Thanks for the match Equilibri, and congratulations on another draw :P
