Averheim at #30?!?? No respect for the former Super Bowl participants! You know, that year when they send home Poopriots and Looneyverse in playoffs... KFC champions, that should gain some respect... not by a stupid standing in a stupid ranking...
That aside, nice write-up! Still love to read something about DLE from time to time.

Averheim is ranked right were it belongs - not so much because of their current performance but because of the heritage. They changed the coach, they even changed the logo, but no matter if their flag shows Bucco Bruce or that cute little bandido, they will always be a bunch of river bandits in their rowing boats.
That said the Buccaneers mourn the death of Bandits' Coby Fleener, a true bloodbowl hero that deserved to play in a better team.
Last but not least: great write-up Arcayn, as always a much appreciated season highlight!

Now this time Emsk can at least accept the ARC again when it comes to the Cardinals being ranked. At the start of this season we got ranked no. 24 - that made our feathers stand up in anger! Now we flew 10 spots ahead, and got a fair description that we can't argue with.
It's time for the Cardinals to step it up a notch for the final stretch...

Arcayn showed huge willpower and demonstrated significant self-resraint when he placed Eagles at no5 only. They could be as high as no3 in my book.
Lets see how high they can fly, and how long can coach keep his cool before boasting around the league. :)

Go ahead, Andras. Write your own APR (Andras Power Rankings) and correct this issue with Eagles.
Also, thaks for the fluff, Arcayn. Pressure in the SHC having 3 teams in the very top... Will any of them win the S6 superbowl? Or even qualify for that event? :P

Great read. Thanks. Agree about the KFC-least notion. Hope to bounce back next year!

Griffins are running with the leagues top-scorer and cannot get out of the bottom 4?
We also have unfinished business with KFC East who we are meeting this half and if they are least then surely we deserve a higher ranking.
Still a season opener vs. a full strength Thunderbolts team for an under strength Griffin side could see this half of the season slip away before we've even got it started properly.

Say what? Grizzlies on top! I did not that see coming. Sonrises better rise to the occasion. Me as no 12? That is too sweet. Both Scimitars and Eagles will run away with the division. Nor Razorbacks, and we will not be found in the playoff as a 12th seed should provide. :)
Besides. This is an even season, so history says I will not make playoff. Talk about pressure for next season!

Scraping that draw against the Eagles is looking more and more lucky for the Sluggers. Great writeup!

hehe Thunder are waiting the end of this cursed season... and will be back stronger next one ;)
GO THUNDER !

A note was awaiting jeffrey when he reached his desk that morning "Come to my office as soon as you arrive. Coach S." This was not the better start of a new day in Jeffrey long experience with coach sonrises. When commuting to the office Jeffrey had the chance to read the ARC Rankings... #1! On one hand he felt flattered and proud of the job done by the team and staff involved... but in the other hand...this meant trouble with coach sonrises.
Getting coach sonrises ego grow the size of the tower of Zharr Naggrund had only a possible outcome...madness! Another scheme of nosense had to be in the making... it was only a matter of time to discover its magnitude.
That note on Jeffery's desk was announcing the beginning of a surely embarrassing day for Jeffrey...if lucky.
"Coach, it's jeffrey. Shall i come in?"
"Come in, Jeffrey"
As he enters the office, Jeffrey sees coach sonrises kneeling on the floor of his office. Wood ribbons, angles and other wood pieces all over the floor. Coach with a hammer in his hand and nails in his mouth. Some sort of an amorfic figure half built next to him.
"You called for me coach?"
"Yes, Jeffrey. A great day for our organisation, innit? ARC rankings finnally makes me justice... dont you agree?"
"Only sure?. I see... you are speechless...i understand young man. Don't you worry... at the end of the day, all the weight of this endevour shall rest on my shoulders. And i take gladly this task... like a lighthouse guides a ship to safe port. Look at me, trying to learn the insights of building a proper cage!. Did you know that our game let you build cages, screens and multiple other geomutr... geomatrik...guom..."
"Geometric shapes coach"
"that! Exactly, geometric shapes. And you must wonder how i know all this, i guess.."
Sonrises makes a dramatic stop...Jeffrey doesnt move a muscle.
"I tell you then...Because i read the great coaches of all time interviews and i learn from them! I must be ready! I shall go to all those interviews with the brightest minds in media sports and show them that i master the art of making a cage or a screen or whatever the other great coaches like me have done in their careers. Do i spare any energy to accomplish such goal? No! look at me now, here, building a cage! ...with my own hands... and in doing so getting the ancient knoweledge of ... things...only to be revealed to the greatest minds of this sport like myself"
Jeffrey stays motionless. He doesnt dare to move a single muscle. he cant help thinking.. "If this of coach sonrises building wood cages is the only thing coming out of ARC ranking Grizzlies at #1...then...this might be a great day after all".
"Anyway Jeffrey. I called you for something else" Coach hands a clipboard to jeffrey. "Here the training planning for the team till season end".
Jeffrey gives it a quick glance. "Excuse me coach... Monday off, Tuesday off, Wednesday off, Thursday off, Friday off, Saturday off, Sunday game day. I don't get it coach."
"It is quite simple Jeffrey. We dont need training anymore."
"How it comes coach?"
"I have an alternative scheme in place. I have already given McCants instructions. He is following them right now."
"would you mind to enlighten me please?"
"Do you know about Sant luis famous doctor...Dr.Curro Jimenez, i think, right hand of coach neabau during his tenure at San Luis?"
"I heard about him" replies jeffrey "and..."
"Well...I have come to get in good terms with one of his associates and i have procured ourselves with some of his finest stuff... you know..."
"What sort of stuff coach? and... who did you buy it from?" Jeffrey is making big efforts to control himself. The wildest of jeffrey's fear in such a day is taking shape in front of him by the seconds.
"A find lad" continues sonrises. "very close to Dr. Curro jimenez himself...Axzekle Lazyskimmer is his name ...and.."
"A goblin!!!!!" shouts Jeffrey in despair. "Show me what you bought!!"
"Relax jeffrey!" Coach seems puzzled and offended by jeffrey reaction. "The nfinest stuff i assure you, 50 grand it cost me but i secure supplies for the next five seasons..."
"Show me what you bought!!! Now!!" Jeffrey face goes red in wrath.
Coach is scared now...reaches fo a small dark bottle and hand it to Jeffrey. Jeffrey snaps the bottle and reads the label "Diarreaxitin".
"You bought Diarreaxitin!!! Do you know what that is???"
"Relax jeffrey, please...no need to get overexcited... of course...i mean..."
"Diarreaxitin is a laxative!!!" interrupts Jeffrey shouting
"What?" replies coach sheeply...
At this very moment, McCants, the new assistant coach and former vikings player storms into coach sonrises office.
"jeffrey, Coach...I have very bad news... the team is... the team is..."
"let it go McCants. What is wrong with the team?" pushes jeffrey
"The team is locked in the toilets... they can't stop pooing... for two hours now"
