Looking for someone to collate/list all the suggestions (and the name of the suggestor) in one post so we can start narrowing down. Any takers?

These are my favorites: I dont think something that could be confusing in conversation when used as an acronym should be chosen, even if it is clever.


Scores & More - the World Bloodbowl Match Report Service
Scry Sports
AP - Antagonistic Press
BBC - Bloody Bloody Cornucopia (just 'cuz of the cornucopia)
BBC - BloodBowl Central
CBC - Cable Bloodbowl Commission (though I would make it Cabalvision)
ESBN - Extreme Sports Bloodbowl Network
ESPN - Evisceration Sports Press Network
FOULER - Federation Of Unattached Live Event Reporters
GLN (Grotty Little Newspaper) Sports Report
GNN - Grotty News Network
GSPN - Grotty Sports Presentation Network (Publication, perhaps?)
MMM - Malthor's Mucky Minions
NBA - Nuffle's Bloodbowl Agency
NBC - Notoriously Biased Coverage
NSN - Nuffle Sport News
SCUM - Scores! Casualties! Updates! Mayhem!
TBN - Tournament Bloodcasting Network.

I cut out some I liked for the above reason, and ones like WGN (World's Grottiest Newspaper) for different reasons; in this case, it seemed a little grandiose, as if it might overshadow the GLN.

What do you guys think?

Also, I personally am pulling for a sort of 'global' network like the Associated Press. That way it's an umbrella and people can be reporters for their own 'local' publication, and their articles can be 'picked up by the AP wire' or similar.

I agree on taking out those acronyms that will conflict with current daily fummbl words eg NUFFLE, FUMMBL. The same can apply to GLN due to it being used already.
I am not for acronyms like MMM (sorry Malthor and Brownrob) due to the fact that if Malthor is no longer active on Fummbl in future where is the relevance then?
Also i don't like the first two that are your favourites simply due to the fact if you turn them into an acronym what do you get? SS and S&M

As for global network I might be mistaken but I thought that was what Malthor was trying to achieve already and the GLN was the global network. Anyhow i don't like Associated Press simply due to being to bland, FUMMBL is after all about having fun, but I do see your point and that if each reporter wanted to use their own news group name for reference to a story then why not.

However enough said by me the above contributions contains allot of great Acronyms. Nice job coaches i am sure that what ever the final choice will be it will be a fine choice.

Personal Picks:
