We'll do this with the names scrubbed to reject bias and not name and shame.

Can we play 'guess the names'?

How good does coach B think he is? What standard does coach B ascribe to ‘good’ in saying that you, I mean coach A, aren’t good?

This definitely seems like the logical conclusion from the data presented. We know a priori that Coach B is correct when he says that Coach A is not good period, because just look at his dumb ugly face. But Coach B played Coach A, a known scrub and loser, 13 times and could only manage 2 wins to 4 losses. There is a large degree of randomness in Blood Bowl, so flukes and upsets are quite common, but this is a large enough sample size that one could reasonably expect a competent coach to give a better showing for themselves. Ergo, Coach B must also be a real stinker of a coach to do so poorly against a notorious incompetent such as Coach A. Both of them are terrible at Blood Bowl, QED.

Any argument with Matt is going to be pretty silly.

Kiss and make up.

I suspect coach A and coach B are both good at bb, but not so much at having fun Wink

I wish fires, floods, and earthquakes on Coach B's native land.

Did Coach B ever give a reason as to why they do not participate in tournaments?

It's not "fair" enough using some esoteric and self serving rubric nobody takes seriously.

You should see me and my friends when we argue. I shit you not out of all the things we can possibly argue about we argue about comic books and pro wrestling. I'm pretty sure 99.9999% of the time these arguments degenerate to name calling and eventually accusing each other of racism. Eventually we get over it and find something else to argue over. It's a vicious cycle and I don't know why we do this to each other but I'm sure our friendship would suck if we didn't.

Edit: Unless I'm missing something I hope my post in some way has anything to do with what TC wrote about.
