Okerlund: Alright, by virtue of playing in the Black Box, we have a brand new raft of Black Box Champions. As the press look on, at this time to present the titles belts to our new champions, our president, the distinguished jdmickleburgh.
jdmickleburgh: Congratulations, coaches, on becoming the undisputed racial champions of the Black Box.
Flair: Let me just say, after carrying the belt that proclaimed me the real world champion, I’m gonna tell you all, with a tear IN MY EYE, this is the greatest moment in my life. When you walk around in this life and you tell everybody you’re number one, the only way you get to stay number one, is to be number one. And this is the ONLY.. title.. in the blood bowl world that makes you number one. When you are the king of the B.. OX, you rule the world, Think about it like that, Mr Perfect..., The Brain, Whoooo!.
Heenan: Let’s give a big one, Whooooooooooo! You did it. I was never so impressed with anything I saw in all my life, he went out there for over 16 games, never took a back step. Took it to Skaven, took it to the Nurgle, took it to whoever got on that pitch, that’s why he is, and you can call him now, the real Black Box Champion.
Mr. Perfect: Hey Bobby, We’re not the kind of guys to say we told you so, but we.. told you so.
Okerlund: Okay, very good. Ric Flair, you have made Black… Put that cigarette out. You have made Black Box history here tonight.
Flair: This is the greatest moment in my life. I wanna jump, I wanna party, but I gotta tell you like this, for the elves and the dwarves, and the rats and the goblins, now it’s Ric Flair and you all pay homage to the man, Whoooo! I love it. I love it. I love it!
Name the promo, win a (no) prize!
Another season has come to a close. Much earth has been churned, blood has been spilt, bones have been crunched and quits have been raged. Let's let the dust settle and try to make some sense of what's left behind.

Break It Down
Firstly, compiling the awards really revealed the range and depth of coaches and teams played we have in the box at the moment. Seeing some coaches who won the title last season with one race fail to show in the top three this season, but instead present elsewhere in a different title picture is a good thing imo.
Three coaches managed to defend their titles from last season with the same team: jean-michel (chaos), smallman (pact) and dirold (goblins) while bancobat (wood elves) and Nestoroide (slann) claimed top spots with different teams.
However this was truly the season of the Harad with two titles (amazons and vampires), #1 contenders with khemri and third with elves. Fantastic achievement sir, well done.
Every race aside from Dark Elves, Halflings and Skaven managed completed sprints this season. So if you're looking to get started with some box action, and have your eyes set on a shiny award, that might be a good place to look.
Thanks for reading and thanks for playing box. See you in the scheduler (as soon as I find the time)
