** Milford from Altdorf **

I have arrived in Altdorf ready for the kick off of the greatest major on FUMBBL. The city is buzzing with activity and every hotel/motel/hostel and hut is already "booked" so if you are showing up to Altdorf late, well, I heard there are some bails of hay out side of town you can sleep on.

The big question lingering over the FC this season is will we see a climatic conclusion to this years majors and see one more race unforlorn? Is it time for the Norse to rise up?

Of course we always have the who has the bigger CPOMB debate going on, Box or Ranked?

For the older fans and coaches alike we will have our eyes open to see if any of the Legendary teams show up, especially the really old legendary teams, getting dusted off for one more match on the grid iron.

This is the big one guys, so everyone apply a team and take your shot at glory. Now I hear some guy on the back bench moaning that there is no point, he is just going to lose the first round.

Well, that may be true, so you can either play a ho hum game and lose once again or lose in the BIGGEST TOURNAMENT FUMMBL HAS TO OFFER. The point, at least you lose with style and you took your shot.

Now for all the new coaches who want in on this here is how you do this.

#1 Hit this link for the FUMBBL CUP

#2 Hit the tab that says group members.

#3 Hit the scroll down menu and select your team, it must be a Ranked or Box team.

#4 with a steady hand, move your mouse over the apply team button and press firmly down on your left click button.

Now to confirm you are in the FUMBBL cup on your Teams page/Home you will notice in your Groups/Leagues area of your home page it will now show the FUMBBL Cup group. If you see that you are applied.

Get a team applied, any team, heck if you have no team make a team and apply it.

** Milford from the AB&C **

Well FUMBBL fans Iam once again set up in my penthouse suite in the new AB&C Hotel. Man is it awesome, as always I have a open penthouse door policy, so drop on by and have a few rounds of beer with me.

Once again the AB&C will be hosting the FUMBBL Cup pickers Challenge. We will use the large field format for this challenge once again.

Here is the run down, full rules and disclaimers will be posted later.

The AB&C will post 10 matches for you to choose from. You will pick 5 matches and give us your insight on who will win. You will be awarded points based on which matches you pick correctly. Also there will be some speculation bets to boost your score.

Depending on the size of the field this will be a 7-8 round challenge.

Also if you miss a round it is no problem, miss 2 rounds and now we will have some issues and if you miss a 3rd round you are DQ.

Once the Draw is made the AB&C will go live and you can start picking your winners.

** For all the new coaches: AB&C stands for Altdorf Book and Casino. **

Even after Milford condemned Uusiverikulho to certain death and to fade out of popular conciousness as having "made their run" and "totally run out of gas", they have risen like a plague phoenix and are looking to once again bring frustration to all potential enemies in the Fumbbl Cup. Although a health scroll is anathema to the followers of papa Nurgle, they nonetheless aim to make their last shot at a second major trophy this season.

PS. Welcome back to bringing the HYPE to Fumbbl majors Smile

Coach Hicksey of the Blood Sea Buccaneers is crushed. The team is to beat down and beat up, they got no chance.


Taking their place is the Dark Sea Raiders a rough and tumble 16 man Dark Elf team out of the Box who will smack you upside the head and then elf ball you so bad your ankles will break.

Altdorf Book and Casino "Pickers" Challenge

FUMBBL fans it is time to introduce the pickers challenge for the FUMBBL CUP.

Here is how it is going to work.

Every Wed. I will post 10 interesting matches for you to choose from. You will pick 5 of the matches. The entry form will have the 5 picks ranked from your 5 point game to your 4 point game all the way down to your 1 point game.

So the most points you can get in a round is 15 points. Every Wed. I will post 10 more matches and off we go for round 2.

So you are picking 5 games out of the 10 posted. You will rank your 5 picks by points you earn for a win. So your stone cold lock you would pick for your 5 point match and your toss up, I have no clue match as your 1 point match. Every round we add up the total points earned and keep a running total as we go through the FC.

NOW there will be a speculation bet worth 5 points also. It will be in the vein of: Of the 10 matches which one do you think will have a combined score (touchdowns) of 6+. Or of the 10 matches which one will have a combined CAS line that exceeds 10+CAS in the match.

AB&C has added another element to the "Pickers Challenge", More Prizes, More points and MORE CARNAGE!!!! (Ok, maybe not carnage but more points)

"Pickers" Challenge Survivor Pool

This challenge will be running inside the normal pickers challenge game, here is how it works.

In order to 'survive" you must pick your 3 point match correctly. IF you make a correct 3 pt match then you survive in this sub game into the next round. IF you miss your 3 pt. match you are OUT, FINI, Thrown to the sharks....CARNAGE!!!!

That last coach standing at the end of the pickers challenge survivor challenge who has not been eliminated gets a bonus of 10pts onto their final score.

IF all the remaining coaches go "out" in the same round. Tough luck, that is how the cookie crumbles and no one gets any bonus points.

IF at any point there is only 1 coach left in the survivor challenge going into a new round, he wins, regardless of what round that occurs in.

IF there are more than one coach still alive when the last round is announced, then all the surviving coaches get the 10 bonus points.

Got it? Good.

Here is a taste of the "picker Challenge"

This is the final standings for the FUMBBL Cup last season.

Final Standings of the Pickers challenge for FUMBBL CUP XIII

** = Coach used one of his 2 "passes" and took the Peoples picks as his picks. You can only use 2 passes during the 7 round challenge. If you miss more than 2 rounds you are disqualified or you do not make picks for the final round you are disqualified.

Pickers Challenge "other" Information

The matches that are selected will only be taken from the current round the actual FC is in. So the first round will only have matches that are scheduled for Round #1. IF there are BYE and some teams are already in round #2 they will not be on the pickers card.

IF at any point all the contestants have had every game selected and played. I will calculate up points and then make a new card for the next round. The chances of this happening are slim to none but you never know.

IF one team forfeits on the pickers card. Tough luck, the match does not count and in essence you lose on that pick.

I try to pick matches that IMO are interesting and would be called "toss up matches". I never put matches that I feel are one sided on the pickers card.

I also try to spread the "love" around and strive to not repeat a single team over many rounds of the pickers challenge. So the first few rounds Iam looking for those interesting matches, mixing some of the high profile teams with the lesser know teams and you will not see the same teams showing up over and over again.

So for the first 4 rounds of the FC we will have 80 teams get the pickers challenge "spotlight" put on them and all the pressure that comes with being in one of the marquee match ups of the round.

** Milford from the Row of a 100 taverns **

Well Iam strolling around "the Row" and the place is jam packed with fans from all over the world. The excitement level is high and the fans are pumped.

I just left the rusted anchor pub where the defending FUMBBL Cup Champions Contagious Plague had a one hour meet and greet with their fans and supporters. They are primed and ready and man is that roster looking good. These guys are going to once again be a really tough out and over at the AB&C they are one of the heavy favorites in the pick the winner contest going on.

Head on down to the "row" and soak up the atmosphere of the FC. Be sure to bring some knuckle dusters and I advise you to wear a cup. It can get really rough around here.

Tomb King Settra sits on his golden thrown, rereads the parchment in his hands, scoffs out loud, wads it up and wipes his butt crack with it. Tosses it across his thrown room and it hits the far wall and sticks to it.

Settra is mulling over the many ways he will torture easilyamused for not allowing league teams into the FUMBBL Cup this year. With the changing of the guard at FUMBBL HQ with PurlpleChest stepping down and drastic changes being promised. Settra thought for sure that a few of the KPL teams would storm the FC and demolish it and rule the day.

He settles him self down and ponders on other ways to "turn" this new comish of the tournament scene around. Killing him out right might not be the best move at his disposal, the most fun but it might backfire and then some jack wad like Pythrr is put in charge.

Settra lets out a smile and decides he will do this the ole fashion way. Send out his emissaries first, offer jewels, gold and riches. if that does not work, threaten to break some fingers, if that fails the old stand by of kidnapping his wife/girlfriend or dog and under the pain of death for his loved one he will give in.

If all that fails, well, then sadly, there is only one option left. Death and then crucify him on the walls of Khemri.

Settra will not be denied, his patience is long and he never gives up. League teams will be in the FUMBBL cup, one way or the other.

** Breaking News from the FC **

The Blood Sea Buccaneers when they heard they were not going to make the FC this year went into rampage mode. They descended onto the Row and beat the living tar out of anybody they could find.

The local magistrate in order to calm the Buccaneers down pulled some strings and now the Buccaneers are back into the FC.

Needless to say the Buccaneer faithful are joyful in the streets and now all is calm once more on the "row", mill about smartly FC fans or else the Bucs might thump you over the head.

Buccaneers go into the FC sitting on match 1299. So opening round will be one for the ages FUMBBL fans...match 1300!!!!

Get your popcorn ready for that opening round Buccaneer match.

Buccaneers hit all the back rooms of every "dive" in town and hire back up to a 16 man squad. They might be "green" but they all have a big "boot".

Buccaneers are ready

** Milford from the FC **

Well coach Brasky showed up at my Penthouse with the WMD in the box. We got along real well, if you consider I felt like at any moment one of the players was going to blindside hit me with a CPOMB blitz move.

Brasky drank all my whiskey and the team emptied out my beer cooler. Once they realized they "drank" me out they patted me on the back and left.

Free loaders!!!!!

WMD is primed big time for a huge run

** The open door policy on the Penthouse might need some revisions. **

Here is the checklist for your Chaos teams, if you have 4 out of 4 bullet points you are good to go and have a "shot"

#1 a +St +Ag ball handler with surehands

#2 4+ CPOMB dudes

#3 A MB/PO/T dude to take down the blodgers

#4 A C/MB +ST dude for that nice blitz move on ST5 to take down any +ST nasties.

That is all you need. You got all 4 covered you are good to go my friend.
