* Don't hire anybody else.
Play hard. You'll forget the fear.

In our 200th game against the Agility Monsters, we raised $253 USD.
In our first game under the Expensive Mistakes rules, we took on the Evil Amateurs and raised $85 USD.
Admins: I may run fewer than 11 men for one match at a time. If I need to defend the premise of this team against accusations of Journeyman abuse, I would refer to the team requirement that all Journeymen must be hired unless they die or suffer a permanent injury: at no time does the team maintain fewer than 11 players minus the number retired after the previous match.
This is fun, by the way. There's a "Galaga" effect: I can't go over 11 men unless I suffer a MNG. And it works fine: you should expect a fight, 'cause you're gonna get one.
