Is the piledriver a bonus foul action from the skill or is it your one team turn foul?

Thanks

I think we need to play it as the latter until we get an errata/faq, which is a shame because it makes the skill useless and is a big deterrence to rolling random Strength skills.

For me, it is a bonus foul action : in same turn, you can take your foul action with a player then foul again with one player with Pile driver skill (who can be sent off normally if he rolls a double).

That's what means "free foul" in Pile driver skill description, according to me.

The above makes sense as you could have multiple players with the skill if rolling randomly and the interpretation above allows multiple use of the skill.

I agree... it allows multiple fouls in one turn as long as you're willing to risk the send off.

I remember goin' round on this and coming up with "it's a bonus foul, doesn't count for your one foul per turn," but I don't remember why that conclusion was reached.

What's a real shame is that Pile Driver ends that player's action. What would have been hilarious would have been Sneaky Git/Jump Up/Pile Driver synergy - blitz somebody, knock them down, kick them in the teeth and then run away again - but I can dream of that showing up in the 2024 ruleset Smile

Okay, so Pretty Woman is definitely saving up for Pile Driver.

If we are counting this as a foul, and I think we should, and it can be taken on multiple players, then is it theoretically possible to do 11 fouls a turn?

Can someone let neilwat know please? he can now more easily break his own record for number of fouls at a one day tournament.

Probably only a need for pile driver if you are the rare coach who fouls a lot? Even people with dedicated foulers like JR's above often only fouling once or twice per match. If you don't mind a few folks getting sent off then fill your boots.

Best skill on a Deathroller by far. Comes with Jugger, just use a Piledriver blitz every single turn. Boom. Player removal.

Remember folks, 170k secret weapons get sent off anyway, may as well give the ref an excuse. Not like you can cage-break with him any more, so just smash stuff.

Personally I only foul every other turn, but only because I haven't figured out how to foul in my opponents turn
