I had an idea for best theme a few seasons ago and ran it by the commissioners just to be sure my 'cheating' was okay by BB standards.
I played Goblins and kept a blog. Throughout the season, I openly tried to sneak 13 or 14 players onto the pitch when setting up for a drive. There actually is no rule in BB against this, only setting up less than 11 if you have 11 ready to play. We decided the appropriate response if I got caught by my opponent before the drive began was a random roll off to have the ref eject my players one by one until I got down to eleven! Seemed fair since the refs throw you out for fouling or sneaking weapons onto the pitch.
Worked great all season. I got away with 14 once (still lost to Necro) and 13 several times (mostly losses as well) as well as getting caught several times by observant coaches (or coaches who had read my blog where the team bragged about cheating)! I did lose Best Theme to a coach whose entire theme was just making fun of my love of theme. No, I'm not kidding.
So cheating should be a part of Blood Bowl...as long as it's the right kind of cheating.
