SpecialOne welcomes everybody
SO: Welcome to the pressconference with the Rotenbach Razorbacks. Welcome to the Coliseum, and for some of you hardcore fans "The Pit".
news are here, and our own Robbert Graaf(RG) from the local Rotenbach Gazette. Wissenland Post(WP) are also here today. Also here is coach Johnson DeVille, 1st round pick Andrus Peat(AP), and team captain Brian Westbrook(BW). Lets start with DeVille, and how the draft went.
DeVille Steps foreward onto the podium with a big smile on his face.
DeVille: Well. The draft went perfectly well. Andrus here were our prime target in the 1st round, and we got him just at the right time in the draft. The gamble we took from trading for the Knights 1st rounder payed off as they missed the playoff, so we got a better pick then our leagueposition. Evil rumours says that we drafted "Doc"
a round too soon, but we got what we wanted with him. Just too sad that other teams can't see quality when it hits them in the face! The last 2 players were fillers for the LoS and back up. just as expected. Bring the questions for the new season!
Yes you! odd looking fisherman in the back! Lets hear from a new face!
Mickey Crabtree(MC) comes to the front row. Some fans reconize him as Patriots house reporter, and the tempers gets up
MC: ehrm. Just to clarify. I am now independent, and have nothing to do with Patriots anymore. Now my question! Well it might be too early, and losing to the champ is not a big deal, but do you have any special plan for season7?
DeVille: You are a Patriot, huh? Got some nerves showing up here just the day after our loss to... "Them".
Westbrook get up and wispers in DeVilles ears
DeVille: ok, ok. "former" Patriot. Well. No. no real big plans. Nothing more than getting into the promised land in back to back seasons! Playoff Baby!
The fans go wild! Screaming and throwing stuff about! The crowd settles again, and the questions can continue.
RG: We come off a 4 game losing streak if we count the last 2 regular games, and the playoff game against Foxes. Is playoff really realistic? Also taking into acount that our Thrower-tandem just got singled, with the death of our own Cor Leyden?
DeVille: That was a lot in just one question, my dear Graaf. Well. the regular games was more about preserving the team for playoff, as the divisional title was secure, and losing to Foxes. Man. That always hurts. We will get back at them this season! Cor was a nice fellow, but really. He spend most of his time on the bench. Team-wise not a great loss, but lockerroom-wise a big loss. We allready brought in an old face as backup, Tom Flores
! Sure he might be a bit rusty, but he just needs to get back into the rhytm of football, and all will be good with him as 2nd string Thrower. No need to go out midseason tradewindow and get a new guy. We don't worry about the current form. The team is ready.
MC: What is the pessimistic view, how many points this season, and which player is most responsible for season6 results? who needs to pull big weight NOW?
DeVille looks towards Westbrook, and he gets to answer
BW: We don't work with a pessimistic view. We only play to win. As newly appointed team captain, I firmly stand with the current vision. Playoff it is. Coach brought in Peat here to do just what you ask. Lift the team to a new level. Peat, myself, and Gooden, coach got traded in last midseason window, are the main forces this season. Oh, and also Wilson, our 2nd in command team captain, how he has scored TDs for us, and distributed the passing game when needed. He is great at performing our run/pass option game and make the right reads to find an open guy.
DeVille stops Westbrook, who clearly got very excited about getting some talking time.
WP: you face Gunners
next in the big Wissenland Derby. You have never lost to Gunners. Is this a turning point in your season?
DeVille: We have great respect for Gunners. A good coach, and a fierce team. We will do our best to keep the bragging rights we earned last time around. A loss here, and the divisional title could be gone, as 49'ers will steamroll through DLE this season. Then we aim for a wildcard, but a win against Gunners, would really help our campaign back on its feet.
DLE News: What do you think of all these +AG players coming into the league?
DeVille: We didn't draft any of them, but it is nice to see the league move in a different direction than bash for the sake of it. Especially I follow the project at Monte Castello Wreckers
with great interest.
Franchiseowner SpecialOne steps up again, and closes the pressconference. Thank you all for coming today. Special thanks to MC for darig to show up, I will see to that you can leave Razorbacks Stadium safe and sound! And dear fans. Even if we lose to Gunners next game, we keep on fighting. You will see no tanking here. Because this is the Razorbacks! We play to win! JUST WIN BABY!
Both fans and reporters left the stadium in a good mood, and after the pressconference, RG talked to a couple of fans, and they were delighted with the new drafted players, and have great hopes for the season to come. Even with the opening loss to the 2x champions.
