an invitational tournament where an undefeated Champion will have its date with destiny . . .
The Snotling Invitational!</h2></b></i></td></tr></table>

From the spacious halls of the mighty Chieftain, the call went out. Surely this powerful chief, his counselors and people deserved to partake of the glories of Bloodbowl Competition at the highest levels. So a great invitational tournament was conceived -- one that would entertain the populace while allowing the nations three time undefeated champion with an opportunity to win yet another great victory!

<div align="left"><h3><u>RULES</u></h3>

1. All teams must follow BB7s team creation rules found on the <a href="http://www.fumbbl.com/FUMBBL.php?page=group&op=view&group=3433">BB7s Main Group Page</a>. Teams have to be in BB7s Main Group to get accepted into the tournament.

2. A coach may enter only one team.

3. Grandfathered teams are NOT allowed.

4. Drafting (ie: dropping players with 4 MVPs) will be suspended for teams in the tournament until that team is knocked out or wins, at which time normal drafting will occur.

5. Each round will have a time limit of seven (7) days.

Tournament Specific Rules

1. This tournament will be played with one of the league optional rules: For this tournament the "Right Stuff" skill will cancel out the "Tackle" skills on all blocks.

2. There will be a limited number of entries and not every team that enters will be invited. Teams will be accepted under the following criteria:
a. Pure Snotling Teams
b. Mixed Snotling/Ogre Teams

3. The Chieftain is putting on this tournament to help out the local economy -- teams are allowed to purchase bribes with inducement money AND with their petty cash.

4. Teams that are made up of Snotlings (with or without Ogres) are allowed to purchase 1 Team RR --- that they can keep for the duration of the tournament.

5. Teams that are made up of Snotlings (with or without Ogres) are allowed to use their inducement money to purchase STAR players. All STAR players that can normally be purchased by Ogre teams are available for inducement with the exception of: Nobbla Blackwart and Morg N Throg (these guys are just in to much demand to make it to a tournament of this level). At no time may more than 8 players be on the active pitch, all subs including stars follow rule 2.c of BB7 rules.

6. Teams made up of Ogre/Snotlings may have one additional player "the Fan" (these teams will be allowed a total of 9 players) per match -- he will be a journeyman Snotling. The Fan Snotling will remain in the end zone and follow the rules for extra players (rule 2.C. on the BB7 main rule page) until the first Snotling is removed from the pitch. At that point the "Fan" jumps from the teams end zone bleachers and runs to join his team. At no time are more than 8 players allowed on the active pitch. The "Fan" may continue to be used for the duration of the match. At the end of the match the "Fan" (journeyman) may be hired though the final roster cannot exceed 8 healthy permanent players.


The tournament will follow a bracket format. The bracket will be redrawn after every round in order to maximize the potential viewing pleasure of the Snotling community. In every new round one (and perhaps more) of the losers could be invited to continue in the tournament - though each team can only receive one such invitation. These invites will be determined based on the following criteria and in the following order (coaches will have 24 hours to acknowledge the invitation).

1. Pure Snotling team
2. Snotling/Ogre team
3. TV Strength (lower score)
4. Total CAS taken in the teams last game - the Snotlings love some blood . . .

Any Necessary byes (again limit one per team if possible) will be determined in a similar manner -- it pays to know the locals!

Pairings for each round will be based on TV.

If the deadline is approaching and your game has not been played, please pm marcellus with any attempts that you have made to contact your opponent. This tournament will not wait for incomplete games and in this format double forfeits are possible!
