Bladder’s Little Goblins Fan Mail. See the Little Goblin, See his little feet, And his little nosey-wosey, Isn’t the Goblin Sweet.
First up the Goblins took on the Norse team. In the first half the Goblins kicked off. They dominated the line of Scrimmage and Knock out the Wolf man. Two goblins where frame by the Norse and sent off for alleged foul play. The Fanatic whirled around for the half getting in the way but not inflicting long term damage. The Goblins however held the Norse off for the half. The Fanatic was to be sent off, but the Goblins Lawyers successfully pointed out to the ref that it was not a ball and chain, but an oversized Medallion. In the second half the Goblins received and again dominated the line of Scrimmage, with the Bombardier and Looney on as well. The Looney in the first minutes of the game was able to injury a lineman but was then viciously knocked out. The Fanatic again whirled around knocking Norse players over, but no lasting damage. However a Norse player was injured by a , whiles the other , was subjected to an illegal foul in which he was injured. The perpetrator was sent off for the rest of the game. The Goblins did manage to score halfway through the half. A much depleted Goblin side, and Norse side set up for the final drive which resulted in a Norse touchdown just as the final siren was about to go. The Norse scored after the Goblins fell over trying to get to him. Result was 1-1 draw and 2-3 in Casualties.
The Goblins, on a high then took on the undefeated Dark elves. They managed to get a bloodweiser Keg that fell off the back of a cart, and had a large slush fund to bribe the ref with. The first half the Dark Elves kicked. The Fanatic then injured a Dark elf lineman, but the Pogoer failed to pick up the ball. The Dark elves flooded through, got the ball and sweeped through to score half way through the half, killing the Looney. The Bombardier tried to use a bomb to knock them down but it only affected one Dark elf and the was not able to do anything in his blitz. The Bombardier and Fanatic were able to hide their weapons from the ref after he saw a brown envelope sticking out of his bag on the side line. With the next drive the Bombardier promptly blew him self up, but luckily the Fanatic became a whirling form of death as he injured two more Dark elves including a Blitzer and a injured another. Unfortunately they could not score as the Witch elf danced between half the Goblin team and pushed the Pogoer in to the crowd. The Pogoer was okay and came back for the second half. The Second half stated with two depleted teams, although, the Goblins were able to use the Medallion argument again, but the Dark elves use an ‘illegal’ substance on a sponge to get a player back. The Second half started with the Dark elves receiving. There was no line of scrimmage as the Dark elves held back in part and the rest of the team broke through the Goblins, but a well placed mine (placed during the half time show while the lawyers were arguing with the Ref) knocked over the ball carrier and most of his support, the blitzed the last support player and the Poger was able to pick the ball up. He would go most of the length of the field surviving multiple hits and leaping lots of Dark elves to get pulled down also within reach of the touchdown line. But as luck would have it the ball landed in a Goblin support players hands and he was able to run in for the Touchdown. The Goblins then kicked again to the Dark elves who tried to bust through, but they a hand off and so could not score. The game ended 1-1 with 4-3 in Casualties.
Meet the Head Coach of Blackadder’s Little Goblins. Name: Rutger Race: Snotling
It is unusually for a Snotling to be head coach, even of a goblin team, but Rutger has the respect of all the players in the team. A proven bloodbowl player himself, he spent ten years with the Big Bonehead Ogre team (although he did quit the team after rumors started that he was not the same Snotling that started the ten year career). He had a record of 30 TD’s, 1023 yd’s rushing, 8500 yd’s flying and 2 Casualties caused in his ten year career. When asked about his role Rutger said “I have the respect of the team as I have done and seen everything in bloodbowl, and having survived this as generally the smallest player on the field, and also due to having married into the Geolitte (crime) family”. With a 0-2-0 record and not having lost a game the Team are going well and could end up near the top if they play hard and have the support of the Ref’s.
Blackadder’s Little Goblins Fan Mail The BLG’s played the Stunning Punks (Wood Elves). In an exciting game which started off well. The Goblins received, and in the first drive of the game the Fanatic and Looney had injured a wood elf each and knocked another out. Unfortunately the Elves did manage to steal the ball and score. But during the drive, Head Coach Rutgar, did manage to convince the Ref that the Looney chainsawing the prone Wardancer was not illegal and was allowed to stay on the field. After the Drive, the Bribes came out and the Fanatic was allowed to stay on the field. The Looney had been Knocked out and was still out. The rest of the half went the same way, more elves were injured or knocked out and the half finished 0-2. The Goblins kicked for the first time in the second half, with player attrition and sending off’s, both teams started to run out of players. The Elves scored, but it was slowing down. The Goblins received in the last quarter and with only four elves on the field, they scored in the dying seconds of the game. Score 1-3, Casualties 6-2. Next up was the clash of the night, Blackadder’s Little Goblins against the Celtic salad makers (Halfling). The game started well with the Goblins receiving and knocking down the Treemen and injuring a Halfling. Unfortunately, they could not pick up the ball. The Halflings got around, but also could not pick up the ball. The Looney then blitz, fell over and injured himself with the chainsaw. The Halflings then were able to pick up the ball and score. This would repeat for most of the game with the Goblins winning the line of Scrimmage, but not being able to pick up the ball. The score was 0-2 at half time. The Halflings received at the start of the second and again with sending offs and attrition, both sides were short of players near the end, but the Goblins luck changed for the last quarter and everything they tried went wrong. Final score 0-3, 5-2
