He had hired Morg 'N Thorg the Star Ogre player as an inducement as well as some bloodweiser babes. The fans had turned up in the thousands, mostly from the graveyards as they were all moaning and groaning for the Atrocity team (+2 Fame). The weather was nice and we were on for another good game of slaughter *cough splutter ehem* Sporting nicety honest!!!
The fans incensed that Atrocity wouldnt get the first drive invaded the pitch and proceeded to kick the living **** out of the humans and even decking an Atrocity player in their exhuberance.
The remaining Sykes players visably stunned by this surge of undead fans tried to get some movement going, even forgetting to collect the ball and even with some hinting Morg forgot to take a turn!
Atrocity took the advantage and slammed into the reeling humans, causeing mayhem down the pitch before very quickly overpowering the Sykes players and collecting the ball. In short shrift Atrocity scored TOUCHDOWN 1-0.
The teams set up and the a few KO'd Sykes players hazily dragged themselves back onto the pitch. No sooner had the kick been taken the Syke's thrower tried and failed miserably to pick the ball up - probably put off by the murderous glare from the rampaging Wight bareing down on him. Again Atrocity took control, gained the ball and scored TOUCHDOWN 2-0.
Now during this first half readers my thnk I have been a tadge harsh on this newest of players to our wonderful game! Well I had increasingly tried to help this new bloodbowl player. Hinting at various tactics and basically screaming at him to stop throwing one die blocks against my Mummies and try to put tackle zones on my rampaging Ghouls. Also tried to instill in him the huge bonus of using Morg to Blitz key players, but Im afraid good people he was deaf to my suggestions, so a mauling he will receive Mwhahahahah
The Second half kicked off with Atrocity receiving and I made it a very hard half to begin with. Mostly I was being evil and wanted to try and clear the pitch of his team. I did try again out of a sense of guilt to impart a few more pearls of wisdom, but these were ignored so I set about cremating his team. At the end of the half though the damage was not that serious, ok I had killed a catcher but all other injuries were either KO's or Badly Hurts - I had scored twice in the half though to make the overall score 5-0!
The Sykes coach completed the final match preps and mumbled thanks for trying to help me, should of listened a bit......
My next game is against the pesky Dwarves that won against Nexus Sykes in the first round games.
