That is one tough Hooligan! How come he's just the 6th best-selling RMH jersey?
I'd figure both Ed's, Dirk, and possibly 'Steady' would be ahead, but who else?
Someone's cheating on the sales, if you ask me...
:orc:


Go Hooligans!


Looney Willy Cutcha's jersey was the 3rd best selling Hooligan jersey before he was killed. He is now #1. :)

This just in - due to scheduling conflicts (and a suspicious chainsaw stuck in the exhaust of their team bus/deathroller), the Chaos Dwarves have had to forfeit their spot in the Not In The Face Bowl. Replacing them will be Mediogre, an Ogre team of completely average renown. So it will be the Red Mountain Hooligans vs. Mediogre for all the marbles and the title of "Not The Worst"!

Recap available after the match is played, which is tomorrow. So come on all you Hooligan supporters (Hoolifans?), cheer for the lads in the orange and purple! (That would be the Hooligans!)

... what happened? Home-stuck fans really want to know. Cabalvision was out, too, and Twatter didnt work also! '


Guess most Hoolifans are in a kind of 'deadzone' considering BB-coverage. :-)

Can't wait for the NITF Bowl report.

Go Hooligans!

Sorry Hoolifans! My fault, life stuff has gotten in the way!

I should have our final recap of the NITF Bowl here soon! If people are enjoying the blog, I may continue it for one more season as I am playing the Hooligans again but the posts will be shorter. :)

NITFA, SOMEWHERE IN THE OLD WORLD

The "Not In The Face" Bowl was played this past weekend for the dubious title of 'Not The Worst'. Our lads, the Red Mountain Hooligans, faced off against the extremely so-so Ogre conglomerate Mediogre and the match certainly lived down to expectations!

With the Critical Bowl coming up later the same afternoon, only 12,000 fans showed up early (and sober) enough to cheer for the two sides. The Hooligans took up a collection and hired a wizard, then cheated him on his fee so that they had enough left over to pay off a ref. That's good Goblinomics!

Coach 'Cheats' McGuire decided to hold onto the money a the coin toss went the Ogres way and they elected to punch the other players first. Also, to get the ball. Maybe.

The Hooligans sent out the Ed brothers, Bolt Throwa the Bombardier, Diamondhead Rex the Looney, and 7 Goblins. As the kick sailed through the air, the fans suddenly got really involved and rioted! Once the refs got them back to their seats (the ones that survived), the match carried on!

Ogre Common Carl greeted rookie Armstrong by badly hurting the goblin right off the line. Welcome to the big leagues! Tolerable Tim, also an ogre, scooped up the ball and headed for midpitch. Coach Dan sent in his journeySnot to foul Big Ed and knocked the troll out! The ref, trying to curry favor with Coach McGuire and his gold, ejected the tiny cheater!

Steady Eddy the Pogoer Koed a Snot as the Goblins moved into defensive position. Bolt Throwa saw a line of ogres ready for a well-thrown bomb...but he doesn't throw them well. His bomb drifted right back to him, knocking him out of the game!

The ogres moved across midpitch, stunning Rex with his own saw, and continued to play much better than their boneheaded reputation! Ogre Ordinary Oscar got cocky and ran downfield like a receiver! He was gang-blocked by Steady Eddy and KOed! King Joe was so furious he didn't get to feed the ogre a boot he almost killed Eddy himself!

After more brilliant positioning and a veritable coaching clinic, the teams began to show their true colors. Stephen So-So tried to smash Jimmy Two-Boots but a well-placed goblin elbow applied directly to ogre gut sent them both down, despite the ogre being three times stronger! Sadly, no one was hurt but the same could not be said for Harry Humdrum, Ogre #3, as he met the business end of Rex's chainsaw (that would be the spinning, point side) and was badly hurt!

The turning point of the drive came with Steady Eddy bounced into the Ogre cage and tested his mettle against the ballcarrying ogre Tolerable Tim and brought the big guy down! He then leapt over two other players and went for the ball but fumbled it away! That won't look good during contract negotiations, "Steady" Eddy!

The ogres then suffered a sweeping epidemic of boneheadedness and didn't know what Coach Dan meant as he screamed, "KILL THE POGO!!!" Eddy saw his chance and went for the ball, scooping it up this time but then turning around to deliver an obscene gesture to the ogre sideline. He then promptly failed to dodge away from the last snoting in his way and fell over, fumbling the ball again. As both teams fell over each other trying to gather up the ball, King Joe ended the half by trying to dodge out for a foul and tripping over a tiny snotling leg.

Halftime 0-0 at the Not In The Face Bowl! It should be called the Not In The Endzone Bowl!

Coach McGuire bribed the refs to allow Diamondhead Rex back in for the second half as Bolt Throwa was simply moved by a stretcher from the KO box to the Ejected Box. No one even woke him up!

Speaking of the O box, both Ed brothers returned but Mediogre returned no one! THe ogres fielded 4 of their own, plus 2 snotlings while our lads were playing at full strength! The Hooligans gathered up the kick, and laid into the ogre line, felling then like trees but they proved too tough to remove. King Joe finally got to wind up and deliver a bonecrushing foul with FOUR assists...and was immediately ejected! When told later the ogre survived, Joe blamed the ref for "chuckin' me after I only booted 'im once!' I don't even get warmed up until three or four good bounces on the same skull!"

midway through the half, all the snots had been removed and the 4 ogres could not get out of their own way long enough to derail the Hooligan cage! Goblin Elwood later said, "So this is what Dwarves feel like when they play us? We should all get beards!"

Coach McGuire didn't let up despite the lads' on-pitch success, sending Shinzo in for a foul and getting him tossed as well. Coach immediately reminded the ref of his recent 'donation' and the ref responded with, "What have you done for me lately?"

As the Hooligans escort Eddy down the field, the ogres began smashing any goblin trying to tie them down. Diamondhead Rex went out, as did "Future Cas" Kazlowski. Dizzy Dirk swung around so wildly he ran right into rookie Elwood and knocked them both down! A probability wizard was used to rewind time and this time Dizzy smashed himself in the face so hard that three giant skulls appeared in the air above him for a moment before disappearing! Fans in the stand swore it was a magical moment that even got them to stop drinking and fighting for a moment at least! Dirk went down and out of the game while Elwood was credited in the post-game stats with one casualty!

Eddy made a break for it and the ogres that could shake off the goblins hanging on their legs gave chase! Troll Bait was injured as he hilariously tried to dive in front of a charging ogre! Bug meet windshield...on a deathroller!

Mainstream Mikey was within grabbing distance of a frantically bouncing Eddy when the air began to crackle with energy! A lightning bolt lit up the morning air as it bounced off Mikey's thick skull and sent him to the pitch! That gave Eddy the room he needed to escape and leap into the endzone! Touchdown Hooligans!

Coach McGuire cautioned his players to not get excited as the ogres have been known to score quickly by disregarding the safety of their snotlings! However, the kick sailed so far back that the snotling throw was impossible and the match was called because they needed to get the pitch ready for the real game - the Critical Bowl! But who cares?

THE RED MOUNTAIN HOOLIGANS ARE YOUR NOT IN THE FACE BOWL CHAMPIONS!!!

After the game, Bolt Throwa was voted MVP for playing one turn, KOing himself, and sleeping through the rest of the game. Since it was such a long shot that he won, he vowed to begin practicing his Hail Mary Pass skills before next season!

Speaking of next season, Coach McGuire confirmed that the team will be back for one more season. "Our victory lap", he said, "will be over the backs and faces of fallen foes. We may not win much on the pitch but we will win the hearts of fans worldwide!" When most of his players began making exaggerated puking noises, Coach then added, "By foulin' and chainsawin' and gob-throwin' and being the rowdiest, cheatin'est, goblin crew this side of the Lowdown Rats!"

Thanks to everyone who followed along with this ridiculous blog! I had fun writing it and I hope you enjoyed reading it! I hope to do more write-ups next season but I may shorten them. :)

Thanks for taking the time to write the match reports !)

I very much enjoyed them and I now consider myself a fan (although it's hard to admit, me being a 'fling player)

I see Blood Bowl addiction support groups being overrun...

Hell, my name is Saebelsultan. I am a Hoolifan. And I need my daily dose of bootin' and mayhem.

:orc:

Also, I am still looking for that merchandise shop!

Thanks to everyone who read the blog and posted! BIG thanks for ignoring my tremendous amount of typos! I would type these up and enjoy it but I never wanted to do the full job of going back through and editing...even though I obviously should!

I will eventually. Look for the further adventures of the Red Mountain Hooligans this season with shorter (hopefully better edited) posts!

YES PLEASE!!!

Thank you for taking the time to share this adventurous RMH jorney with the lot of us!
It was a joy to read.
:D

And maybe, in this not-so-stressfull time between seasons, perhaps the Hooligans could have a photo session to share with the fans!

Well it saddens me to say I will no longer have the time to do such detailed write-ups but to thank all of you that followed the Hooligan's adventurous rookie season, here is a link to the team page -

http://iowa.bloodbowlleague.com/default.asp?p=tm&t=sou2

and the highlights of their second season so far...

Match 1 - We got rookie Wood Elves to start and liked our chances. Then ELVES happened. The Woodie coach has returned to BB after many seasons away and actually started the team with a lot of FF, a Tree, and 1 RR. Most Woodie coaches agree that this is no longer optimal as of LRB6. Didn't matter as his rookie wardancers flew right through the Hooligans' cages/lines/clouds/screens/kicking boots over and over, the weapons were ejected in short order and the rout was on. At one point our lads were down 2-1 but driving with the ball and removing Woodies, hoping for an OT against half a team but wardancer shenanigans (known as Don't Roll Ones) ended that dream. Side Note - the next game, the Woodies had a wardancer killed against High Elves (the Dank Elves we beat last season) and promptly restarted so their win agains the Hooligans no longer exists...except on our record. LOST 4-1.

Match 2 - The Hooligans found themselves up against the 2 million TV Orcamite Fighting Champions and prepared themselves for a glorious death on the pitch. But Nuffle must have taken a shine to us because pretty much everything began to go our lads' way! From the opening kick that provided a BLITZ in which we fouled out a Blitzer, to the fact we had 2 cas and 2 KOs from our first four fouls with ZERO ejections, to Ripper soaking up blocks, to the Orcs going back and forth between failing to break our armor and failing to pick up the ball, everything was coming up HOOLIGAN! We actually had a chance to go up 3-1 (two chances actually) and those were the only things that failed all game. Once, the ball was free in the backfield and Ripper, with no RRs and an Orc hanging on him, chucked a goblin back there who stuck the landing...but had scattered out of TD range. :) In the end, the Orcs began to pile up the injuries and make a mad dash for the endzone to force OT but fell down on double ones on a GFI! WIN 2-1.

Match 3 - Our division is 2million Orcs, 2 million CDs and a new Dwarf team, did I mention that? We got the Dwarf team for week 3 but this coach is so fun he does his own thing and is playing a team of all Longbeards and 4 RRs! Yes, he knows that is not optimal but he plays for fun! He once played an Undead team for so many seasons he created 11 zombies from other teams and turned his whole team into raised opponent players! He got a Random Event card and made Steady Eddy the Pogoer Really Stupid for the match, which was great along with my trolls! We turned him over on the first drive and scored, ejecting our own HMP bomber, but then it got tight in a hurry. Even with just Longbeards, with so much Block and Tackle, Holligans were leaving the field right and left. He also did a great job keeping goblins away from the trolls. We basically lost all our Dodge skill for the game! In the end, the Longbeards' 2AG caught up with them and they failed a hand-off to tie it on the final turn of the second half! We get a rematch with them (as well as those Orcs) later this year! WIN 1-0.

So 2 wins, 1 loss so far with our NITF Bowl opponent Mediogre up next! Then those 2million CDs loom with all that Block and Tackle and plenty of Claw... :roll:

As always those darn elves to spoil an otherwise perfect season start.
Still, that's a pretty good start for the Hooligans I suppose.

Next are those Mediogres which, after taking a peek at their roster, seem to be some tough nuts (1xBlock, 2xAG3, 2xMA6). But you know the saying, "the bigger the tree, the harder she falls"...

GO HOOLIGANS!
:D
