One Man Line Of Scrimmage

This season, in One Man Line Of Scrimmage, a new series that the paper will be running after as many matches as possible, the reporters from the Hotfoot Herald were granted exclusive, candid and in-depth access to one of the foremost teams in the Southern Waste League's Regional division. Unfortunately, the paperwork got muddled up and we sent them to the Scoundrels's changing rooms instead. Read on for exclusive coverage of the team's post-match briefing:

"Lads, it's deja vu all over again."

"Deja who?" Fructose asked.

"'E woz a Bretonnian Ogre, Fructose." Legneck tried to explain. "Saw' im once, smelt of garlic, had three arms."

"A mutant Bretonnian?" asked Fructose.

"No, he'd just bitten the third arm off some geezer. I distinctly remember it, he was - "

"What's an ogre got to do with anything? Those orcs had a Troll -"

Ladyshape and Manshape both began to growl.

"Fructose!" Avo shouted. "You know we don't use the t-word here!"

While the two largest members of the team continued to seethe Fructose blushed and started stammering. "S-s-sorry, Ladyshape, 'gentle-forest-person-with-elegant-habits'."

"You finished?" the coach grumbled. "I'm not talking about some pasta-eating ponce from Bretonnia -"

"Tilea" said Legneck. "Pasta is from Tilea. Those Bretonnians only eat snails."

"Ooh, I'd love some snails to eat" pitched in Bogan Picnic. "They sound right sophisticated."

"Nothing but posh slugs, love" retorted Fructose, trying to gather his self confidence again.

"I'm not your love" spat Bogan, adjusting her mini skirt. "And you can stop treating me like some kind of object. I'm a proper person, with feelings you know. And what's more, this is an equal-opportunities team, and I think you don't give us ladies enough respect!"

Ladyshape made a booming sound of agreement.

"Leave it out, Bogan" said Pinkeye. "You're giving it all that feminist chat now, but where were you last night?"

"Whatchyou mean?"

"Well, there wasn't much female solidarity when that geezer with the ball knocked Irene into the middle of next week, was there? You were too busy grinning and smiling at that Fungus, just cause he's a Star Player or some such claptrap."

"Me and Fungus are very good friends, and -"

"Stop!!!" the coach screamed, stamping his foot. "It's bad enough that I spend a fortune getting that pumped up pumpkin of a so-called 'star player' to come and attend our match -"

"Do you mean the bloke that hit your girlfriend in the face with his massive balls?"

"Ball! Fructose! That lovely lady is my fiancee, not my 'girlfriend'! What do you think I am, a schoolboy? For the last time, he hit Irene in the face with his massive ball! It's enough work trying to manage you unskilled reprobates without your schoolyard innuendo! And if one more of you morons asks what an innuendo is, I'll get Manshape to give you one! Now quiet!"

A hush fell across the assembled goblins. Had the coach just announced he was marrying Irene?

"I've been looking. Clearly, we're acting under some kind of curse. Every game we've played this season has been exactly the same as the game we played last season. You had that temporary anenome and played the Denizens by accident? Well, it wasn't an accident, was it? Is it any accident that you lost 2-0? The exact same score as the first game you played last season?

"And then what happened yesterday? You lost 5-1, just the same as the second game of last season. I can't believe you idiots! We had a chance to go down in history as the first team to have a flawless record in the Southern Waste Regionals, and then one of you, yes, Bogan, I'm looking at you, persuaded Ladyshape to throw you in the air and then run into the end zone with the ball."

"Isn't that what we're meant to be doing?" Bogan was confused.

"Not at the price of our place in the history books, you wretched little gimlet! I'm beginning to wish we'd never hired you! Or fired you and then rehired you just because you had an extra fancy new hat!"

"It's a pretty good hat, you have to say" Legneck interjected.

"Legneck, enough! Aren't you meant to be studying for your medical exams?"

Legneck withdrew to the back of the room, dragging his pogo stick behind him.

"Now listen, and listen hard. We're cursed, ladies and gentlemen, and the only way to break this curse, is to not lose 2-0 to the next team. That shouldn't be too hard, it's a 'Trial of Puppies and Candy' according to the schedule. Probably more of those nancy boy elves. Now get back to training!"

One Man Line Of Scrimmage

Mixed emotions in the Scoundrels' dressing room after their most recent match: on the positive side, they've now scored as many times in this season as in the last two seasons combined. But sadly this was also Avo Smash Toast's final game with the team.

"Lads, in case you didn't see, Avo has gone to a better place" intoned the coach.

"Ooh, the Border Princes? That sounds lovely. Irene showed me the pictures from your holiday -"

"No, Bogan, Avo is not holidaying in the Border Princes. As I said, he's gone to a better place, a place from which no goblin returns -"

"But boss," interrupted Pinkeye, "he gets sent off every week. As soon as he stops being angry with the ref and spends a bit of time at the garden centre, he always stops sulking and comes back."

"Pinkeye, while I admire your youthful optimism, I'm pretty sure that you, just like everyone else, saw when his head was knocked off and his guts fell out. Avo is no longer with us. He is going to fail every breath test. He is a shrivelled corpse atop the rubbish dump next to the stadium, he is - "

Willy No-Mates stuck up his hand." Boss, you know we're not good with all these euphemisms and metaphors. What are you trying to tell us about Avo's holiday?"

"He's not on holiday, William. He's dead. Dead, dead, dead."

"But can't - I mean, why doesn't - how come Legneck doesn't just patch him up like you said he did with all those Norse students?"

"Ahem" said Legneck. "The problem with that plan, is that while the university afforded me a generous budget for sticking plasters, super glue, hatpins, necromantic potions and string, we can't afford any of those things. I'd love to put him back together, but the fact is, we're broke."

"How much can it cost to put Avo back together? Surely any price is worth paying for our topiary-loving leader!"

"Well first, I'm your leader, not some hipster who likes poncey breakfasts. And second, about 40,000 gold pieces, which we have about half of right now. And no, Pinkeye, before you start with any more juvenile witterings and I know you're thinking them, Ladyshape, Bogan and Irene are not doing a "bikini cartwash", whatever that is. They're people, not objects to be pawed at by some oik with a carriage with racing stripes on the sides."

There was a general hubbub of discontent in the room. For the last two seasons, the Scoundrels had maintained a comprehensive health plan for the team, but with tightened budgets and two recent deaths, many of the goblins were feeling insecure.

"But on the bright side, lads, we have new sponsors! The men from Proctological Procedure & Gamble have been in touch."

"The who?"

"No, The Who are some longhaired minstrels from Albion. You must have heard of Proctological Procedure & Gamble!"

"I bet it's something about sticking a finger up your -"

"Pinkeye! They're thr manufacturers of I Can't Believe It's Not Blubber, the number one bestselling substitute blubber substitute in Lustria!"

"Who needs a [i]substitute[\i] blubber substitute?"

"Well obviously, we do. Did you not notice how well Fructose was dodging past those Ogres when he scored?"

"Well, yeah, but then the loudmouthed git fell over trying to take down that snotling who had the ball and we lost."

"Exactly. Because by then, all the blubber substitute we'd been using on him must have come off. But I Can't Believe It's Not Blubber is guaranteed to stay slimy for a full 90 minutes, and we've got free supplies for the rest of the season, in return for the odd promotional appearance."

"An odder appearance than Fructose?"

"I don't know what that means. Now start slathering it on!

Episode IV: A New Hope

The hubbub of the changing rooms dropped to silence as the coach returned. He cleared his throat, coughing up rather too much phlegm onto the floor in front of the makeshift stage.

"Ladyshape, gentlemen, goblins of indeterminate gender and all my fine female friends" he leered. Our third season in the Southern Wastes League was quite something, wasn't it?

"When we started the year and we seemed to be stuck in a temporal anomaly, I have to admit, I was worried. When our two finest players died, I was scared. When we had no money to pay for half-time rats-on-sticks for you all, I considered absconding with the petty cash. But never fear, we never had any petty cash last season anyway."

"What's an abscond?" Pinkeye Growthspurt whispered to Fructose Ovedose.

"It's a posh word for a scone."

"What's a scone?"

"It's like a not very good abscond, you dummy!"

The coach hawked up another block of phlegm. "But never did I give up hope. I always knew that you, my fine Scoundrels, you'd make good eventually. And we did - you finally didn't lose a match!"

"We didn't lose a match! We didn't lose a match!" The assembled throng began to cheer.

"Well, we did lose 6 matches, but there was one match where we didn't lose, so that counts" the coach hastily corrected himself. "And I'm happy to announce, with the rebuy for our fourth season complete and with Manshape turning professional, there's some other exciting changes to announce. A round of applause for Manshape!" The throng clapped and cheered, except for Ladyshape, who looked quite sad to no longer be the centre of attention.

"For one, you are finally getting the medical treatment in season that you deserve! Legneck has decided to retire from Blood Bowl, and has just qualified in record time from the Norscan University School Of Medicine, and he's taking up a new role as our chief medical officer!"

The cheering faded away. There was a faint sound of weeping from somewhere at the back.

"And just in case any of you still doubt his credentials, in the off-season Legneck reanimat- resuscitated Avo Smash Toastyflake, who's back to play for us again. Welcome back, Avo!"

Faint applause as the team's number one looney struggled to his feet. Strangely, he had a remarkably greenish tint to his face, even for a goblin.

"Now, I know what you're wondering - with Legneck wearing a big white coat and holding some tongue depressors, who's taking over pogo duty? Well, Legneck has volunteered his lovely wife, Mrs Legneck -"

"That looks a lot like Legneck's brother, in a wig!" yelled Fructose.

"- be that as it may, I want you all to extend her a warm welcome. And hot on her heels, we've realised it's unlucky to have somebody named 'Dizzy' spinning a ball and chain, so I present to you, the one and only, ... Bouncy Bouncy Slim Hammerhands!"

A truculent youth came in through the side door, heaving an enormous chrome bowling ball behind him.

"Vegemite Disaster is back in town, young Pinkeye there seems taller every day, and, last but not least, I'd like to unveil our new logo!"

An even greater hush fell over the team as the coach pulled a cord and the curtains behind him fell away, revealing a sparking, fizzing orange sign, glowing with an eldritch blue light. "Feast your eyes on that beauty!"

Image

"Cor!"

"Aah!"

"Wow!"

"Boss ... why do we have a sign for the Singed Poon Scoundrels? Is a Poon another kind of scone?"

Hall of Fame Entry: Wäŋa Warriors
https://fumbbl.com/p/team?op=view&team_id=766950
The team to break the SWL’s Orc curse, the Warriors lifted the Premiership in season LXII and came close to following it up in Season LXV (finishing equal first but losing on countback to rivals Slumbering Skink). They also won 2 Conference and a Regional title(s). More impressive perhaps was that the Warriors won in an era featuring clawpomb killstacks with an old fashioned mark them up and grind them down style. Along with the first Orc premiership title, the Warriors will also be remembered for their media presence – coach DrDiscoStu providing unprecedented access to his game plans with video breakdowns of his philosophy and play.

Hall of Fame Entry: Blackwater Glee Club
https://fumbbl.com/p/team?op=view&team_id=752944
3 Peat! The Blackwater Glee Club won 3 straight Premierships toward the end of the CRP era, following it up by narrowly missing out on a 4th and then finishing runners up in the ASC – the final season of CRP. Clearly the Glee Club dominated the end of CRP. A team full of stars in their prime. A roster full of capable killers, two of the sexiest agile beastmen you could dream up all supported by the perfect mix of utility. Foad has always been a strong team builder, but the Glee Club probably fielded the most glorious roster to ever grace an SWL pitch.

Sphinxes From Mars
https://fumbbl.com/p/team?team_id=717913
The Sphinxes will be most remembered for their brutal fouling, longevity and colourful team theme. While their record of 33/33/45 may not look fantastic, it is probably as good as a long term Khemri team could do in the CRP era. They did take out two Conference and a Regional title during their career as well as making a nuisance of themselves in the Premiership division on multiple occasions. Amongst a roster filled with brutal Tomb Guardians, it was Karma Man who became the most notorious; at one stage owning the all time fouling record, taking out numerous Twahnlow boots and memorably killing Foul Frank to claim the first Black Pearl. When you played the Sphinxes you knew that your team was going to be bashed and kicked mercilessly, but it was hard not to enjoy it with coach Luohghcra’s disarming personality. A fan favourite, the Sphinxes were amongst the most spectated teams in a golden era for SWL participation and engagement.

Hall of Fame Entry: Griffon Gate Sentinels
https://fumbbl.com/p/team?op=view&team_id=761196
The Griffon Gate Sentinels revolutionised team based fluff in the SWL. With an exceptional biography meticulously maintained, a fantastic logo and a consistent, recognisable theme – the Sentinels became the benchmark for team pride. The team then went on to start the faction movement in the SWL by introducing the HEROES concept uniting the High Elf teams across the league. Though they celebrated all their decent players, the three main stars of the Sentinels were undoubtedly Iolas, Kantil and Falearn. The Sentinels amassed 139 games in the SWL and enjoyed some success with two Conference and a Regional championship(s). Their career finished at the conclusion of CRP with a record of 52/31/56.

The Bitecoin debacle was hard on everyone in the Southern Wastes League. Not only were Legendary teams forced out of business, but drastic cuts had to made throughout SWL administration. One of these cuts was to the seasonal stipend to the SWL All Star Committee. While not happy to have their pay cut in half, the committee continued their good work.

This was, however, until the "How Good?" scandal of Season 73. Investigative CabalVision current affairs show NewsBarbie uncovered blatant overspending by the new SWL executive. The mysterious "How Good?" budget included vast sums of money spent on items such as Kim Chi, soup, and Scotch finger biscuits.

Though refusing an interview, an insider allegedly told NewsBarbie that the commissioner's sole response to the scandal was "Cuca sardines are <expletive> amazing!"

And so the All star committee went on strike.

No All Star lists were released for season 73. The SWL administration stood firm.

No All Star lists were released for season 74. The Players started to complain. Member of the local team "Rationalists", and political activist Socrates, took to taking a daily dump on the front steps of SWL HQ in protest. Security were too scared to act, but the SWL administration stood firm.

No All Star lists were released for season 75. Something had to be done. A new CFO was brought into the executive team. Mr F was well known for gaming the system, and it took him a 30 second glance at the books to find a way forward. The "How Good?" budget stayed, and the All Star stipend was returned to its former level.

Just how was this accounting wizardry achieved? With a simple stroke of the red pen across one item. Southern Wastes League Donation to the Shrine of Nuffle. We're all screwed.

Hall of Fame Entry: SWL Fun Police
https://fumbbl.com/p/team?team_id=779117
Semitence’s Fun Police made their intentions clear from the start; to cause as much destruction as possible in the league. Causing 515 casualties in 110 games would certainly be considered a success. While their opponents certainly feared seeing the Fun Police in their schedule, it was for more reasons than just the potential destruction of their team. The Fun Police maintained an excellent record (60/17/33). They won the 2nd Bob Borc Cup after finalling the 1st and were mainstays in the Premiership division. With several legends in their roster, they certainly deserve a spot in the Hall of Fame and will be remembered as perhaps the most feared team of the CRP era.

Hall of Fame Entry: Error 404 afterlife not found
[url] https://fumbbl.com/p/team?op=view&team_id=792918 [/url]

Two time Premiership Champions, twice runners up and with two Conference Championships, Error 404 boast an impressive resume. As the team that un-forlorned Necromantic in LXI, they went on to win the final Premiership in CRP in LXX, nine seasons later. Many of Samaranthae’s game reviews and analysis can be found in the old forum threads, a worthy read for any coach looking to improve their positional play. Known for maintaining solid defensive structures to allow the best sniper in the league, Huge Axeman (114 Cas in 78 games) to pick off the enemy – Error 404 were brilliantly coached, finishing with a record of 47/18/14 and with a positive casualty differential of 208!

Hall of Fame Entry: Bribery and Corruption
https://fumbbl.com/FUMBBL.php?page=team&op=view&team_id=810985

It is unlikely that we will ever see a Goblin team as strong as Bribery and Corruption’s take the field in the SWL again. B&C maintained a Goblin roster above the 200TV range for several seasons in one of the most blood thirsty eras for the league. In that time, B&C made the Conferences twice and put in respectable showings, a great achievement for the stunties. Players such as Dirty Pool, Kickbacks and Thieving showed what was possible for longevity in the careers of goblin star players in the league. A fan favourite and widely loved team, Bribery and Corruption will long be remembered as the stunty kings of their era.

Welcome to the SWL All Star presentation evening for Season 76.

This is the first All Star announcement since the committee emerged from their underground hermitage, here once again to celebrate the finest players of the Southern Wastes. As ever, all SWL players are eligible for consideration in this team. We’ve assembled 11 players with representatives from all levels of this great competition.
It gives us great pleasure to announce those honoured for their efforts and performances during SWL LXXVI. Starting with the toughest of the tough on the line of scrimmage, then the charging forwards, the thrower and on to the grace in the backs.

ImageAll-Stars Season LXXVIImage

When it comes to raw beef, nothing in the Southern Wastes currently compares to Socrates. Grabbing at least one casualty in every game during SWL LXVI, everyone's bullish that Socrates will continue his damaging run as his team endeavours to fight its way to the Premiership. That is, as long as he continues to avoid the dreaded Curse of the Death Watch - but let's face it, with the big guy suffering nothing worse than a few broken ribs in the last 6 games since he killed anyone, he's probably safe as houses. Another back-to-back All Star, it's going to be hard to dislodge this monster from his position.

Squanchy What is it that makes orcs so consistent in the Southern Wastes? The weather? The training? The constant beatings for the weaker team members? Whatever it is, Squanchy is another orc who made every day at the office one where somebody on the other team had to be carried off the pitch. (But with 0 confirmed kills out of 9 casualties, maybe this orc is taking the Curse of the Death Watch a bit too seriously). He makes his debut appearance in the All Stars after collecting the Silver Knuckles for injuring more players than anyone else in the Conferences. Built like a Black Orc with slightly better dress sense, Squanchy takes his position in the All Star team on the line of scrimmage, despite favouring blitzing for most of his hits during the season.

Hanging around like the worst kind of bad smell, Aenesidemus makes it back to the All Stars for a second consecutive season, the big guy inexplicably standing on the pitch for exactly the same amount of time as he did in SWL LXXV. He may not be smart but he's horribly strong and that's probably contributed to his longevity. One of the blodgiest trolls to have been seen for ages, he'll probably be loitering on the pitch for a long time to come.

This season's Golden Slipper wearer, the fearsome Bull Centaur Taur'ruk is the only Chaos Dwarf representative in the All Stars this season (and you have to go back two seasons to find another diminutive top hat wearer). Tau-ruk was the second highest scorer in the Premiership, and tied for the Silver Ball with none other than Hergal Goldbrew in SWL LXXV. With the Bronzed Raiders not participating in the Premiership this season, it's not likely that we'll see that rivalry reunited with his pint-szied nemesis for a while. (and the only time they did get on the pitch at the same time, Taur-ruk had a disappointing match while Goldbrew scored his customary touchdown). Fun fact about Taur-ruk - there are no fun facts about him.

Impak! This Legendary orc's inclusion in the All Star squad is no surprise, given that he has always made the shortlist since debut 6 seasons ago, and has now got the All Star nod 4 seasons in a row. He came in right after the SWL restructured and has been hunting glory with a single-minded focus, taking all the glory away from his teammates. His team may as well be called the Waaaaghton Impak. It is well-documented that Impak aspires to be known as the Orcish Griff Oberwald, and with the numbers downfield he has put up this season- 11 touchdowns and 195 yards rushed, it's easy enough to see why. That's not his only strength though. Amazons all through the Southern Wastes fear this murderous orc while he's on the defense, with talents perfectly suited to crushing dodgey ball carriers.

In case anyone thought elves were just about throwing the ball around and jumping over other players, Wychwethyl brought the pain against this season. Clearly angry that he hadn't made a return to All Star status while the Wildwood Windlords were busy taking back to back Prem titles, he knuckled down in Season 76 to show that he was worthy of further All-Star recognition. Smashing all comers, Wychwethyl easily claimed The Replacement Knuckles and The Eth'el Shield. While all those beatings he meted out didn't lead to a third consecutive title for the Windlords, it kept them up. Will SWL LXXVII be the season that Wychwethyl makes some sacrifices for the team as they take the cup, or will he be focussed again on individual glory? Or will this be the time he manages to make it to the All Stars and lead his team to the ultimate victory, a 3-way over the Southern Wastes?

Claims that there's "something fishy" about Salamoneus can be dismissed because the rumour departments of rival teams just don't know how to spell 'salmon' properly. Salamoneus sprang onto the scene with a casualty, a touchdown and an MVP in his first game, and hasn't slowed down since, averaging more than 1 casualty per match throughout his career. He's the kind of terrifyingly mutated rat that little mice around the world aspire to be, a two-time all-star holding 8 awards from his violent charge through the Regional and Conference divisions of the SWL.

When you mention elves, the first thing anyone apart from an elf will say is "agility bull@£$%!". The second thing they're likely to mention is Longbough, a complete terror of the passing game. At the highest level of the game, nobody can get close to him. In the past three seasons he's won the golden passing treble: Manfred von Richthofen Arrow, Emilio Luthien Boomerang, and Duskwind Strongarm. It looks like he'll either be buying a bigger trophy cabinet at the end of Season 77, or possibly been battered off the pitch by some angry orcs. With P.A.S.S. entering Prem in S76, could Longbough's grip on the All Star thrower position be challenged? Not a chance.

While Hergal Goldbrew's Duke Snakefield medallion for best player of the season was richly deserved, it also redressed some of the injustice that this pintsized touchdown powerhouse has only received one MVP during his career. Not only did Hergal score in every game of the Giants' Premiership debut, he was the only dwarf to score for the team. In fact, the little chap with the piston-like legs has enjoyed a 13 game streak where every time he took to the field, the Giants were guaranteed a touchdown. A fast developer, Goldbrew made it to the All Star list in only his 2nd season in the Southern Wastes, and this return in his 3rd season cements his position. Like any dwarf worth his beard, Hergal loves metal shiny things, and was last seen wobbling out of a bar, happily clutching both his Duke Snakefield medallion and the Disco Dan Ball for most touchdowns in Prem.

The anonymous menace of the Southern Wastes, Arethusa, despite having no apparent skills apart from kicking people inconspicuously while they're down, continues to excel at one thing. In SWL LXXVI this one-goblin-fouling-machine fouled more than any single team in the Premiership, arguably justifying Styx & Warpstones promotion "to see what the plucky little fella can do". A two-time star player with two bronze and two silver boots, remarks about the oddity of a player with so much footwear in his trophy cabinet has been dismissed on the basis that there's nothing odd about a four-legged goblin anyway.

Controversy surrounds Ruler, first All-Star fom the Haunted All-Sorts. A human catcher with a statline of a quick Gutter Runner, it's been suggested again and again that Nebula753 just traded a large plate of cheese for a shaven rat and the loss of his soul. Still, you can't arge with a Bronze Ball and a Bronze Twahnlow, can you? There have even been grumbles from Impak, apparently jealous somebody else scored as many times as him last season, that "Ruler is hogging the limelight". Intra-team rivalries are nothing new to the SWL All-Stars, but if both players make it to the Premiership in LXVIII, expect a lot of fireworks and at least one player to be leaving the pitch in pieces.
