Nuffle Be Praised Weekly Recap Week 2

Hello coaches and bloodthirsty blood bowlers! It's Crypt Collinsworth again, and my colleagues and I are here with another edition of the Nuffle Be Praised Pro Weekly Recap! The number one recap show in Blood Bowl! We have a lot of action to get to, and a lot of violence as well. Let's get the recap rolling!

We start this week in the Western Conference South where Nollix's Aztecs matched up with Double Pastis' Dark Theory. In a tense back and forth match up, neither team was able get the go ahead touchdown leaving the game deadlocked at a 1 to 1 tie.

Our other skirmish in the Western Conference South featured the World Wide Webz of Coach Silaninil versus ChaseJJ's The Peasant Brigade. In a rather one sided contest, and one of the bloodiest matches this commentator has ever seen, the World Wide Webz emerged victorious 3 to 0.

The referees had a busy day contending with the fouling strategy of the Peasant Brigade.

After two weeks of division play, Dark Theory and the Aztecs are tied for first, while the World Wide Webz are only a point behind. The Peasant Brigade is going to need to make some bold moves to stay competitive, especially after the first two matches left them severely depleted.

Moving right along, we stop by the Western Conference North to our next match up between Midway_Monster01's Varangian Guard and Dymntd's Ol' Angry Ears. The Norse warriors of the Varangian Guard brought the pain for the second week in a row. Pushing around the Angry Ears on the way to to 2 to 0 victory.

Another strong performance from Varangian Guard's Runner Herger. Is there something in the mead?

Wrapping up the Western Conference, we have the match between Jonny_mal's Springfield Atoms and MRB1129's House Verindath. Another standout performance from the Atoms has shown that they may be the team to be reckoned with in the Western Conference, as they bested House Verindath in a 3 to 0 rout.

There will be GRAVE consequences paid for the treatment of Matron Verindath. Granted those consequences will be paid by other players of House Verindath.

Strong wins by the Springfield Atoms and Varangian Guard set up a week 3 showdown for first place in the division as well as bragging rights for first place in the league. Meanwhile the dark elf contingent holds steady at the bottom. Next week's match between House Verindath and Ol' Angry Ears will be for a different kind of bragging rights.

With two weeks in the books the conference standings are starting to shape up. The Springfield Atoms and Varangian Guard sit on top, with the Aztecs and Dark Theory close behind. World Wide Webz is on an upward surge while House Verindath, Ol' Angry Ears and The Peasant Brigade have yet to solve the riddle that is Nuffle Be Praised.

In our first match up of the Eastern Conference we check in on our Southern Division. Where Hezekiah87's The Green Plague took on FatMarc4lyfe1's Odin's Finest. The Orcs were unable to unleash the bash against Odin's Finest, leading to game where neither team could get the advantage ending in a 1 to 1 stalemate.

It wouldn't be a recap if we didn't have at least one thrown rock. This time Nuffle blesses us with the rare double rock throw!

Our other Southern Division match up saw CommieCozy's Genetically Engineered Superelf High (GESH) take on Bortbot18's Goth Bondage Party. In a match that typified elf shenanigans, GESH stole the 2 to 1 victory with a last minute touchdown.

3LF-0004 put in an MVP quality performance with 2 injuries and one pass completed.

After two weeks of play The Genetically Engineered Superelf High lead the division. The Green Plague and Goth Bondage Party aren't far behind with Odin's Finest at the bottom.

Our Final division match ups take us to the Eastern Conference North, where our first game featured Snakbar7's Arctic Underoos against DaltMC's #Swole. In a wild and crazy game that looked certain to be a tight victory for the Underoos; #Swole counted on the luck of Nuffle to take advantage of a perfectly placed throw in to pull out the victory behind the rush of Abraham “Drinkin” Lincoln defeating the Arctic Underoos 1 to 0. For a more in-depth analysis check out our Thursday Night Blood Bowl post!

Our last game of the week was a Sunday night showdown between Mariogodzilla's Sticks and Stones and Stimee's Strong Bad's Awesome Team. In attendance for the game was Blood Bowl World Champion Finalist GuinnessK! The wood elves took a commanding 2 to 0 lead in the first half; however the Homestar Runner crew never gave up and managed to pull even with multiple passes and the grace of Nuffle. Leading to the 2 to 2 tie.

You've heard of elf shenanigans. They ain't got nothing on chaos warrior shenanigans!

After two weeks of play, #Swole has the division lead with Strong Bad's Awesome Team and the Arctic Underoos  tied for second while Sticks and Stones tries to turn things around and make its way back into contention.

With 2 weeks in the books the Eastern Conference is topped by GESH and #Swole. Arctic Underoos, Goth Bondage Party, The Green Plague and Strong Bad's Awesome team are all tied with 2 points. Sticks and Stones and Odin's Finest round out the bottom of the conference.

That all for the weekly games. Let's head over to the studio and John Maddening with our Players of the Week awards!

Hello fans and coaches, John Maddening here with the awards for the players of week 2. Remember, the selection is based upon the players' on pitch performances for the week in review. We will choose 3 players. The first 2 choices will be awarded to stand out players in their conference and they will be awarded the “Conference Player of the Week” title. We will then select the weeks overall standout player for “League-wide Player of the Week”. Selection for league wide player of the week disqualifies that player from also winning the “Conference Player of the Week” title. Now with that out of the way lets get to the awards!

Our first award goes to the Springfield Atom's Principal "Everyone loves to hate" Seymour Skinner! Skinner earned Western Conference player of the week award by scoring a touchdown and committing an injury against House Verindath.

The former Armin Tamzarian no longer cracking skulls in Vietnam now he's cracking skulls for the Springfield Atoms!

Our next award for Eastern Conference Player of the week goes to Genetically Engineered Superelf High's 3LF-0004! 3LF-0004 proved he deserved the award with 2 key injuries including one to former player of the week Manson Reznor, and a completed pass.

The success of the engineered super-elves reignites the whole debate of "nature vs grown in a tube by a mad scientist".

Hello everyone, this is Howard Cohell. Again, I have find myself relegated to the Nuffle Be Praised Injury Report. My new agent promised me Crypt Collinsworth's job. I knew I shouldn't have trusted a Skaven entertainment lawyer (talk about a rat's rat . . .) Oh, yes. Right. Welcome to the week two injury report.

Here is where we have all the gruesome details about all the weeks injuries. As always we will list injuries by severity starting with the badly hurts and going all the way to DEATH! Once again onto the roll-call of the maimed!

First up we have the badly hurts. Barely qualifying as injuries these players can walk it off and will be ready for next week's games. Finn Snorrason from Arctic Underoos, Bro Namath from #Swole, Journeyman Celhain from Sticks and Stones, Matron Verindath, Logain The Laughing and Rhaego The Damned from House Verindath, Mesmal from Ol' Angry Ears, Buliwyf from Varangian Guard, Rienthor, Calthel and Istis from World Wide Webz, and Sam What Jenkins of Peasant Brigade!

A little bit more permanent then the niggling injury we have the permanent stat reduction injuries! If you end up with one of these don't be surprised when a pink slip comes right after. Journeyman Burrim from #Swole movement down, 3LF-0003 from Gesh with agility down, Donkey Dan from Peasant Brigade with strength down.

This week unfortunately the only death we would've had was stolen from us with quality apothecary work. Lets pray to Nuffle that doesn't happen again! Before we wrap things up its time for the bloodiest game of the week award! This award goes to the World Wide Webz vs Peasant Brigade match up! Featuring 9 injuries including 3 missed next games, one niggling injury and one stat down! This is the second time that the Peasant Brigade has been featured in the bloodiest match of the week in as many games! At least this time they inflicted injuries on their opponent!

Almost as many ejected players as injured players on the side of The Peasant Brigade

Even though World Wide Webz won the match 3 to 0 they more than paid for it with blood.
