As per the news item.

We are seeking suggestions for the name of our new official ranked tournament reporter group. Some initial suggestions:

CBC - Cable Bloodbowl Commission
ESBN - Extreme Sports Bloodbowl Network

Personally, I would like to see something that has Grotty, FUMBBL or Tournament in the name, but that is my own preference. We will put the best ideas into a poll and the winner gets our congratulations and the kudos of being known as the witty person who came up with the great name.

Post your suggestions below Smile

Be creative! Show us you are the cleverest wittiest member of FUMBBL Smile

The Blood Pool.

Edit: Oops - looking for an acronym. I figured since it was a pool of reporters covering bloodbowl... I got nothin'...

Please include the acronym with your suggestions everyone.

Eg, I like Grotty News Network because GNN is close to CNN.

ESPN (Elven SPy Network)

This isn't orginal, I quoted it from a coach I'm in a league with on our forums. Sadly he recently got married, or thats what I've heard, and hasn't been on for around 2 months.

WGNP -- Wicked Grotty Newbish Paper (like WKRP)

WGN -- Worlds Grottiest Newspaper (from Chicagorc)

CNN -- Carniverous News Network

TBN -- Tournament Bloodcasting Network (though there are religious currents involved here).

HBO -- Hilarious Blood Office

BBC -- Bloody Bloody Cornucopia (my personal favorite)
1) Has the idea we are covering athletics...hence the repetition since they aren't the brightest.
2) Cornucopia is for the more sophisticated reader. Also known as the Horn of Plenty in Greek Mythology. Also goes well with our predictions and the whole concept of Nuffle because the person in possession of it had the power to gain whatever he or she wished for.
3) And though I am an American...primarily a bunch of Euro's play this game, so I thought out of respect for you...we could let you have the BBC.

Problem with acronyms that are like real life companies, is, that many people might have no idea that there are such companies in real life, so the joke misses them. Something like BBC is very known, CNN too, but still.
