We'll be going in depth to cover the Destroit Lynels Season 23 campaign in the NBFL. Each week we'll preview and recap the teams games.

Season 23 Preview
With turnover in the division and the conference as a whole, the Lynels are picked for a Wild Card Spot. We'll see if they live up to the hype or shame themselves by being bitten, mangled, and covered in poo by the toughest coached division in the NBFL, the NFC North.

The Team

Destroit was a season 22 post draft expansion team. The rookie season saw building pains, but the team managed a 4-6-4 record to finish an even .500. Not good enough to get the job done, but importantly all the initial draftees survived the rookie season and are ready to contribute the 2nd campaign.

Best Player Big Ben the 3rd

The Bull put up 9 TDs and 6 Cas last season and looks to make himself a candiate for Leauge MVP

Best Hitter Chris Spielman

The undrafted Chorf put up 9 casualties last season and only got better down the stretch

Best Fouler Quandary Diggs

With the retirement of Matthew Stafford and his 43 fouls in 13 games the team will look to Diggs and his 9 fouls to step up (or down?)

Week 1 - Chorf on Chorf Violence!

Opponent: Vigilante Shingles
Record 0-0 (5-6-3 season 22)
Coach: rodney_dangerfield

Quick preview: A true clash of styles in what is a mirror match, that sets up to answer the age old coach question: Who should carry the ball? A proud majestic Bull, or a wimpy hobgoblin? Vigilante just missed the playoffs in season 22 and look to make a strong push this season.

Opposing Team strengths: Hobgoblins?

The Shingles have Super Star hobgoblins. Just lots of impressive little guys led by the blodging 7447 Tom Mack. But he's only one of 3 real difference making hobgoblins.

Opposing Team weaknesses:

Lots of star hobgoblins come with lots of bloat. If they can't get away from the heavy hitting Lynels that AV7 will see them short handed guys they need. Expect the bloat to give the Lynels enough treasury to lure out some big time star players.

Prediction: I think we got this.

Game 1 Recap

The Lynels receive the season opening kick in the pouring rain. They're joined by Hthark the Unstoppable and they immediately start hitting, but Big Ben fails to get the wet ball. The Shingles pressure but are knocked around more and players leave the field as Big Ben gets the ball and gets out of the way. Quandry's boot pick up and he just hurts player after player. He sends a Bull to the Apo before he does serious damage to Cedric Ogbuehi. The ref wants to step in. He doesn't, and his pants pockets sag for the remainder of the game, and Cedric's career is likely cut short.

Mark Ingrumm takes offense to Spielman's best hitter designation and tries to show he's the top dog. The Lynels make quick work of the Shingles and score as time runs out.

The weather clears and the Shingles line up and and look to be in trouble early, but the armor is holding and the positioning is very solid. Big Ben makes his way into the crowd trying to free up a hit on the ball, but it doesn't happen. Shingles get the late equalizer.

Time for a 2 minute drill and the Lynels push guys down the field for the desperate pass. Big Ben manages to throw the ball over a scrum. The 2nd round rookie Nicole "T.A." Kidman has the chance to make the catch and walk in but drops it and the game ends.

1-1 tie. Not a great start, but something to build on.

Season Record: 0-1-0

Week 2 - Chorfs take on Rookie Orcs! (division game)

Opponent: Manglesota Vile Kings
Record 0-1
Coach: Kzarik

Quick preview: After a hard luck first game the Orcs will be without their Star thrower as he waits to see if his career will continue. The orcs will be relying on a raw strength advantage, While the Lynels will hope a season of experience can lead them to a victory in the first division game of the young season.

Opposing Team strengths: This guy

The Vile Kings are lead by Nick Egads, and he's really going to have to strap the rest of the team on his back.

Opposing Team weaknesses: Surprisingly not much

With no real strengths, the team is pretty well balanced and doesn't really have too many holes. The one weakness would be the lack of sound tacklers on defense. A ball carrier will emerge for sure and will likely be Dug Netherland.

Prediction: I think we got this.

Week 2 recap

It was bad, really bad 2-1 orcs

2 dead chorfs included first season draft pick Mark Ingrum who decided to feed himself to a troll rather than live with this result.

Not much to say other than out muscled, out bashed, and out played.[/url]
