Broekwater Patriots is a foundation team in the Draft League Europe, member of the KFC West division and is the favourite team of the Marienburg area. Broekwater is a small city with a closed community, much smaller than Altdorf, Nuln, or Marienburg, and they quickly developed "us against the world" mentality.
Team is inspired by New England Patriots philosophy of "Quest for perfection". Every player should have a team first attitude, and they should all DO THEIR JOB. Team prides itself on toughness, both mental and physical, achieved through endless preparation.
- Offense wins games, but defense wins championship (NFL)
- Agility wins games, but good linos win championship. (Broekwater)
- Prepare hard, and hit even harder! (Dont'a Hightower)
- Why we dont have a trophy hall? Because we dont need it. The win is the past, preparation is the present, and the next game is the future. Everything else is a distraction. (coach)
- Toughness is preached on the practice field and also in the warroom. We are building depth on the roster to overcome injuries. (GM)
- We are ruthless indeed! (Matt Cassel)
- Hunters give me extra motivation to kill first! (Khalil Mack)
- Jernigan is typical Patriot! Annoying, tough and efficient. He should not be up for sale! (Meanandugl)
- They have eye for talent. (Chad Clifton)
- I must not fear. FEAR IS THE MIND-KILLER. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain. (Frank Herbert, Dune)
- Better be good AND lucky! (bghandras)

We are in the market for:
- High draft picks
- Flashfurt Universe: No team caused more trouble to us, and there is no team that victory is sweeter against. We expect to meet them in every seasons playoffs, and our main goal is to beat them there.
The natural rivals are the KFC West division rivals!
- Altdorf Thunderbolts: We killed their Franchize guy in our very first match. They plot revenge ever since. Season 3 saw the killing of Mayo (traded from Pats to Bolts), and maiming of Hightower. Blood still boils at both sides. Their Osweiler is keep hurting us. Them having Miyers, the graduate from Broekwater (and No1 overall draft pick) complicates the relationship.
- Fort Solace Griffins: Killed Jake Matthews! Furthermore they moved into the same Bay, across Broekwater at the other side of Marienburg, and annointing a Patriots GM trainee as new head coach and GM.
- Middenheim Classics: A tough, no-nonsense opponent. We hit them hard, but they kept coming back. Games against them are always spectacular, and thrilling. It is time to educate them about their game plan. Lets hit them hard when they mark us the next time we meet!
