You might want to point out to Andy that, as per the errata (I've just rechecked it) there's nothing in it about Wood Elf Lineman. ;)

There was suposed to be a new Errara out this week; perhaps he is looking at that?

So the same as it is now in CRP ... but instead of a skill re-roll you use a team re-roll. My opinion ... this still makes it worthless even with stacking but the real kill-y team player might disagree as I've not played a super CLAWPOMB team.

It seems like an OK compromise to me. A handy skill to have when you've merely stunned that Ag4 niggled skink.

Teams of POMBers will disappear since you only get one RR in a turn. But that one ultra nasty blitzer can still cause pain. If it is now largely deemed worthless I don't see why they've consigned it to a special optional box.

No, that's the link that bloodbowl.com sends you to when you go to the errata.
No idea why they can't host the PDF directly on the website, but it is on there.

Yeah, still pretty bad, the real killstack teams have multiple clawpombers. It might mean that mega Clawpomb take lots of rerolls though, significantly increasing TV. To be honest we'll have to see if Cyanide/Fumbbl implement this rule, otherwise it's all pointless anyone as it hardly ever happens on tabletop. But that's a whole other can of worms.

The cloud. And it raises a serious point: hard to trust when things are spread all over the place, with the weirdest names. Is that link real, or a trap?

Because if you're anything but small scale or low tech you don't serve files off the same machine you're serving pages. In this case it appears to be an automated thing in a wordpress hosting system.. the hint is in the subdomain: presscdn - their wordpress CDN (content delivery network). A CDN is often, as Steam Ball suggested, a distributed set of machines that are set aside just to serve files rather than do any sort of processing as you'd want with scripts that generate normal pages.

If it's linked to from the official site then it's probably safe to say that it's real. Similarly, there's not much trap to be had when the link goes directly to a basic data file like PDF.
