The Nibble Big 10 is Formed!


Deep in the heart of the brutal land of "Pencil-Vania", exists an immortal Coach known only as "Joe."  He looks out over the ominous mountains that surround 
his valley, searching for the Coach who one day might claim his throne.  His team of Lions have dominated the land for as long as anyone can remember, besting all challengers on the Blood Bowl pitch.  But the winds of change are sweeping across these hills, and a new band of Coaches hope to stake their claim on this title... Lord of these mountains, King of the Lions!     Welcome to the Nittany Blood Bowl League (NiBBL)!

Breaking News:

NiBBL Big Ten Week #2

Week 2 results are final, and we've already begun week 3! So let's get these match reports out before my editors send the Ogres after me!

Coach Da Basher faced Coach Black Bedlam in the first contest of the week in a Nurgle vs Necromantic no holds bared death match! Except that no one died, so it was just a match... sadly. Beasts of Rock's modus operandi is slowly (and boy do I mean SLOWLY) starting to take shape. Emphasizing ball possession and slooooow-down tactics, the Beasts have held their second straight opponent scoreless with their 3 to nil victory. Meanwhile, Bedlam's Blackguard is still trying to get a feel for how his team thinks and reacts! FYI Coach Bedlam, having "no life" is NOT the same as being undead. You're going to have to find a different way to associate with your team.

Thankfully, our next battle of the week finally answers the question of what will happen when world order devolves into chaos... 3 to 1. Think about it, we could trademark 3:1 to signify the end of the world! Look at 3:1 sideways! It looks like a smirking demon with horns! It's brilliant! Why am I sharing this multi-gazillion dollar idea with you losers? Nevermind, back to the game! Riotous Rumblers scored 3 touchdowns, and Khorne Borne scored 1. 3 to 1. 3:1

Next up, Evisceration of the Ran'K hosted Butts_McCraken to continue this week's theme of evil scumbags vs. evil scumbags! (Nothing personal though). While thousands of grammar teachers protested the match outside the stadium, fans were elated by the carnage on the pitch! Eight casualties and one death for those keeping track! Although the final score reads 1 to 1, Evisceration come out of the game much worse off, and will be down FOUR players for their next contest. Ouch! In the other locker room, Butts_McCraken seem pleased with the tie, but more importantly they keep their death caused streak rolling along at two games! Now this is a team I can support!

The two pass-happy Elf teams also squared off this week, yet surprised everyone in attendance by displaying their running prowess! A few key plays led to a 2 to 1 result in favor of Highhold Avengers! Their star catcher Kiirdur Landeredal (yet another reason why everyone hates elves, their fancy-pancy names!) is already vying for league MVP! The Union prance (hehehehehe, prance) away with a loss, but the team looks to be taking form nicely. If these two teams can keep their players healthy they are going to be tough to stop!

The final match of the week showcased the Wood Elves vs the Vampires. Despite holding the ball for 66% of game (to just 22% for the Woodland Rashes) the Vampz in the Hood just couldn't find a way to score. Which is completely foreign to the Wood Elves and Coach Lawnmower who score with each other ALL the time. The Rashes pull out the 2 to 0 victory and are primed for their match up in week 3 against their mortal enemies the Dark Elves! The Vampires are still licking their wounds, and rumors are swirling that they may be booted out of the league for horrid play! Stay tuned for more updates!

Just one single death in week 2, so let's have a moment of silence for the Dark Elf lineman Dreissan. That's long enough! It's not like any of us really knew him, or liked him, or even cared. Ahhhh Blood Bowl, thank you for giving us the strength to embrace death and mayhem! As I said, week 3 has already begun, and I know for a fact more death is coming! Bedlam's Blackguard will look to shore up their defense against the high flying Elves of the Union. The Highhold Avengers take aim at the Riotous Rumblers in an intriguing contest where both sides look evenly matched. Will the High Elf armor hold up against Chaos's strength? Coach Larkstar will put some type of team on the pitch against Da Basher's 1st place Beasts of Rock. Is there anyone who can slow down his homage to bad 80's hair bands? Khorne Borne will pay a visit to the death-dealing Rats from Butts_McCracken and hope to put an end to Coach brtm5's early success! And last up, the game of the week pits the Dark Elves of Evisceration of the Ran'K up against the Wood Elves from the Woodland Rashes. Mortal enemies! Elves! Ok, don't focus on the elf part. Mortal enemies!

Best of luck in week 3!
