I would definitely make a fouling treeman if this was implemented.....

Out of all the CPOMB changes/suggestions/terrible ideas I've read over the last year or so, this is the only one that I'd be interested in playtesting.
It would make fouling a little more common too, which seems to be a common complaint from some of the old-schoolers.

I like thought a lot and echo dsavillian - I tend to tune out suggestions and rants about it. But I really think this has merit - playtesting would be needed for sure but it seems to really fit thematically is a reasonable nerf while (I imagine though based on no evidence) remaining a 'useful' skill.

I like this one as well. In fact, I would probably just leave it as "Place the player prone to reroll either armor or injury during a foul action." This would allow more flexibility with the skill, without being overpowered IMO. Foulers would still get sent off with enough frequency to keep it from being overpowered.

There's another variation where it's still a blocking skill, but if you roll a double (on the PO reroll) the player is sent off. It's less change to the skill that way.

Koadah, I remember that pile-on too... that was downright dirty. Goose was a baaad man.

Something need to be done, any change would be nice.

there are no orcs on a NFL pitch either (or trees), so I think your analogy sinks there...
