Welcome to the end of season pressconference at the Coliseum of Rotenbach Razorbacks.
With us today is franchise owner SpecialOne, headcoach Johnson DeVille, and foulmachine Dieter Van Kassel
. The 2 local reporters from Wissenland Post(WP) and Rotenbach Gazette(RG) is present as always.
SpecialOne bids Welcome, and gives DeVille the floor.
DeVille: We didn't make the playoffs. One game.
One game took it all away from us. I blame San Luis 49'ers for our failure this season. With a win in that game, we would have been in the playoffs. But we...
RG Interrupts: We have other questions than what can be seen in the league tables
*. We searched the dungeon of the Coliseum, and why do you have a second office DeVille?
DeVille: errr. What? 2nd what?
WP: We got a tip, and as a good reporter, we checked it out. Why do you have a bloody Spiked ball in there?
DeVille: Oh, that! That is my trophy for being a very hardhitting blitzer in my younger days in the wasteland PeeWee league. Thats all.
WP: But we found a contract for the head Martin Von Rijn. A bounty hunter, in the Empire! What a scandal!
SpecialOne: DeVille? Care to explain? We have spend lots of training and money in getting Martin fit for the league, and he was supposed to be our bannerman in the league!
DeVille: Well. Clearly he was pulling the team down. He didn't have the personality for leading the team. His brother on the other hand... He has the personality, and the potential to be a real star in the league. That contract? Nothing to see there. Just a way to get rid of an early mistake in the build of this great franchise. You should be thanking me. Bastian Von Rijn
has given us 10 CP, loads of TD's, AND he is responsible for our only 2 awards so far!! Heck, in our closing game of the season he ran in the only TD of the game, and won us the match!
RG: But you killed Martin Von Rijn in cold blood!
DeVille: No, I paid someone to hurt him, not kill him! He was hurt in the game, but I don't know who wanted him dead...
SpecialOne: As you reporters have nothing real to bring in this sad case, I suggest we move on.
RG: Fair. Van Kassel. You have set an amazing record. 10 fouls in one game
! Whats next?
Kassel: Being a bouncher in my former life, I'm just happy to bounce players from the other team. I come in, do my thing, and if they stumble before me, I will make sure they don't get up again. It's that easy.
WP: wait a minute... You are the one getting rid of Martin Von Rijn!
Kassel: Ha! No, I'm not. Not even close...
SpecialOne takes over once more
SpecialOne: If you guys don't stop acusing everyone of everything, I will have you banned from covering anything in DLE!
But to sum up our season. We made our 4 wins, and as we had almost no loss of players this season. We made a positive record of 6/3/5. We will go into the draft with only 3 picks, 1 good pick, and 2 very late picks, we will come out of the draft strenghted. But we will tell you more about the draft when we get closer. First we kick back and enjoy the great playoffs. Here we can learn from all the teams to beat to get there.
DeVille has gotten his air back after this frontal attack
DeVille: We gonna make Rotenbach proud of the local team. Next season we will be in the playoffs! With guys like Bastian Von Rijn and Dieter Van Kassel on the team we will go a long way!
With this we end the season closure from Rotenbach Razorbacks. "We play to foul!".
Outside the pressroom, two frustrated reporters meet up. A dead end. And they wonder how to find out who actually did the dirty work. In this part of the realm, with a person as important as DeVille, he will probably not be judged for anything. Van Kassel shows up suddenly, and says.
"You guys are doing this all wrong. You need to go to the local tavern. Meet people where business is made. I know, you will find the right answers there. What the drunks tell a bouncer. You wouldn't dream of it! I want this solved just as you, so do it good this time. Just like I did last game."
Van Kassel leaves, and the to reporters knows what to do next.
At the local tavern, they sit in the bar looking around, wondering who to seek out, and in the darkest corner far in the back of the room they find no other than Arcayn! They ask him about the situation and he breaks like a wooden spoon with too many halfling chefs around it.
Arcayn: Yes! I payed a hitman to get him. It was the Goblin ref himself. You couldn't see it from far away, but as the APO entered the pitch, the ref followed him to Von Rijn, who had taken a hit, but was able to play again some time. And there he made him drink some poison. Even the APO did not see this.
WP: But why?
Arcayn: He did such a good job with running 32 yards and making a TD against us, that I knew he would be dominating us in the division for many seasons to come. Something had to be done. So I did.
The reporters leaves, and desides to do nothing about the matter, and as they look back they see a slain man. A man who has lost his franchise, and is not likely to come back. They leave him be with his lost franchise and the sad story behind them, and this is where the mystery of Martin Von Rijn ends.
*A special thanks to Wreckage for making this nice table for the DLE!
