Foundation team of Draft League Europe, KFC West division and favourite team of the Marienburg region. Broekwater used to be a small fishing village with 80 inhabitants, but grew to town status quickly. The High Tide stadium, team facilities, accomodation services, public transportation, the Football College, the Brawlers all need serious staffing after all, making Broekwater an extremely prosperous place.
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 mental and physical toughness, complemented by the 'us against the world' mentality.
- 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)
- 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)
- ...certain serial winner... (Meanandugl)

The natural rivals are the KFC West division rivals!
- 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 keeps hurting us. They have Miyers, the graduate from Broekwater (and No1 overall draft pick), which complicates the relationship.
- 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. It sort of escalated then. Then another coaching change and escaping the bay area for the cloudy Albion. Hah!
- 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! They made a strong push and also made playoffs. Well done. Even if they still consider themselves as cursed. (Made playoffs while) Killing and perming Patriots. Also well done, but the last part will never be forgotten!
