If so, can retire. Honest question, so honest answers, pls. Don't wanna make the community a less-accessible place. Haven't gotten any criticism yet, but don't know whether that's because a) it's not that bad, b) it hasn't been seen by many women, or c) the collective audience doesn't have sufficient English skills to get the double-entendre. Might be a combination of the three. But only option A is really acceptable.
I would not think thatis offensive. Within limits imo and glad to see some effort put in the names.

I personally think it's a good example of a joke that, notwithstanding some risque wordplay, is well within the bounds of the acceptable. But it's the kind of thing where reasonable people can disagree, and no one person can say once and for all that it's okay (except Christer, in the context of having it on the site, but that goes for everything.)

Meh. Our community is holding, maybe, but there's a geek renaissance going on*, and Blood Bowl is a thing again, and all we're doing is holding. It may be worth discussing whether we need to change our collective culture to keep up with the times. I don't think that's the central problem we're having, but the conversation isn't hurting anything.

* and maturing, at this point. We, playing one of the more difficult gems of gaming history, should be the beneficiaries of a more mature geek renaissance.

I fixed the quote a little but I agree. Be a social warrior elsewhere.

@Lawofthewest and Jack....I had teams like yours at one time. My perspective has changed and my team themes have changed.

Why are we discussing minor issues like sexism here? These forums are reserved for complaining about important things like claw and turn 16 fouling.

It is only being "discussed" because Ian came on the forum whining about it.

Now we're being told to 'fuk off' by coaches who haven't even been here 6 months?

Maybe we'll get the lock before people get warmed up.

When was the last RNG thread?

anyone who disagrees with my posts is welcome to message me here or privately. although i am a noob, and i may word my arguement wrongly, i think people generally understand what i am saying, for better or worse. if you take the 'fuk off' bit personally, have a long hard think about yourself. i don't even know you.

edit. thank you kondor for the edit that makes my point easier to digest, in the heat of the moment it's not easy to get the point across clearly without offending anyone Smile

Then if you don't intend offense, maybe you shouldn't tell complete strangers to "get the fuck off FUMBBL"?

Yours is a bit different and definitely not as bad. It is not really appearing as a clear insult to women or anybody else. You have word play on the player names and they don't really link to the team name. If the team name was called dumb blonde women, maybe you would get some complaints. But it just looks like a jokey team. If no one complains no need to mention it.

@garyt1, you get the double-entendre in the team name, right?
