Ok, so this s just a first attempt on some background for Brick and Grotty. Maybe it's possible to go on from here:

Brick was discovered while watching a match between the Black Crag Stompers and the Red Plaguebearers. Being a huge Blood Bowl fan Brick got quite excited and started throwing other spectators of different sizes at the players. Both coaches were amazed by the extreme accuracy that Brick displayed in hitting the Plaguebearers' best players. After the match they approached the seemingly exhausted ogre and both tried to convince him to join their team. When Brick woke up in the infirmary after devouring the Plaguebearers' coach, he agreed to play for the Stompers for the legendary price of "anuther un of those tasties".
Since this incident Brick ate a total of twelve Nurgle players resulting in a partial immunity to food poisoning and an unusual fondness of playing for Nurgle teams.

Did you know: Grotty is in fact Brick Farth' thrid companion. The first was a goblin nowadays better known as Speedy Grumm, owner of Speedy's Snotling Snacks, who lost both legs after one of Brick's worst passes directly into the hands of the opposition's troll blocker. After that Brick did two matches teamed up with halfling runner Harry Snuddles. They parted, because of Brick's sensitive nose and Harry's insensitive feet.


BTW, please excuse any spelling or grammar mistakes. I am not a native English-speaker, but I am eager to improve my English.

In respect to making Brick more like the player he's an homage too, we should tack on:

Brick is the all-time leader in both teammates thrown for touchdowns and teammates thrown for gruesome deaths. It's been said however that protecting these records have caused his ego to expand with every stunty thrown. A gargantuan primadonna, Brick now consistently feigns retirement unless a team can provide the right environment in which to sustain his legacy as the preeminent Ogre thrower of his generation.

Thanks for the info. Exactly what player is Brick an homage to? I think, I suffer a little from the bone-head trait myself...

For quite some time, Big Guys favour the quick striking weapon of picking up a player holding the ball and hurling them into the end zone. But the one player who turned it into an art form, is the Ogre Brick Far’th.
In 2491 Brick Far’th made his first appearance on the pitch and quite a mess too, when every player he threw into the end zone ended as a nasty stain. At this point it didn’t look very promising for Brick’s career (and for the Goblins too!), but in 2492 the starting Ogre-Thrower Joe’Dy Maggot suffered a vicious bite injury by a resilient Goblin, and with him nursing and cursing his swollen hand, there was no choice but giving Brick another shot at it. Do you believe he used it? Boy, did he use it! Shaking off his rookie nervousness, Brick played a brilliant match and threw a Goblin with the clock winding down on him perfectly into the end zone, snatching victory from the hands of defeat. It was a spectacular clutch play and a stunning revelation of his nerves of steal. An ability that was going to guide him through many close wins in his career. What followed were years of success, incredible turnarounds and funny Goblin deaths, which culminated in 2003 when Brick played the match of his life. He threw four direct touchdowns with four different players in the first half, and caused the death of all four of them in the second. One of the most extraordinary achievements of a single player in the game of Blood Bowl.
In 2007 Brick finally broke every single record for Ogre Throwers in a highly celebrated match by throwing a Snotling for the win and killing his coach in celebration. But the real surprise was Brick’s post match announcement of turning freelance to make, as he said, financially the most of his talent. Some commentators have pointed out though, that Brick’s real concern was to avoid the trade to the Scarcrag Snivellers. But however it is, since then Brick is traveling the old world in the company of the talented Grotty, a Goblin who made the promise that he wouldn’t fail a single landing. So far, Grotty has not only survived Brick’s crushing throwing style, but his swollen ego as well and has helped preserving Brick Far’th’s status as THE outstanding Ogre Thrower of the game today. Undaunted by injury, Brick has played 283 consecutive games as a starter and has a career total of 442 players thrown into the end zone. No other player has made so many attempts to throw a player, no one has ever thrown so many players successfully and no one has killed so many players that way than Brick Far’th.
