Hello fans and blood bowlers and welcome to another edition of “Inside The NBP”. Blood Bowl's premiere recap show for the number one league in all of Blood Bowl Nuffle Be Praised! I''m Crypt Collinsworth and alongside my fellow presenters John Maddening and Howard Co-Hell we have a full slate of blood bowl action to bring you! Let's start things off as well always do with the week 7 match recaps!
We kick off our match recaps in the Northern Division of The Eastern Conference as Snakbar7's Arctic Underoos took on MarioGodzilla's Sticks and Stones. Despite going up against a heavily depleted wood elf squad, The Underoos were only able to score one touchdown, picking up the win 1 to 0.
Our other match-up of the Eastern Conference North featured Stimee's Strong Bad's Awesome Team taking on top ranked DaltMC's #Swole. The drunken dwarves of #Swole showed why they are the number one ranked team in NBP, easily dispatching Strong Bad's Awesome Team 2 to 0.
With just one week left to play in the regular season, #Swole are comfortably on top and have clinched the Eastern Conference North with 12 points. Followed by The Arctic Underoos with 7 points, Strong Bad's Awesome Team with 4, and Sticks and Stones in fourth with 3 points.
Next we move our coverage over to the Eastern Conference South where in our first match CommieCOZY's Genetically Engineered Superelf High took on Hezekiah87's The Green Plague. In a game full of elf “shenanigans” as well as uncommon orc misfortunes, GESH took the win scoring 4 points to 1.
In our other match up of the Eastern Conference South, Bortbot18's Goth Bondage Party took on FatMarc4lyfe1's Odin's Finest. In a game that set the NBP regular game record for scoring, Goth Bondage Party took the win with an astounding 6 touchdowns to 0.
With one game left to play Goth Bondage party has a narrow lead in division standings over GESH with 11 points to 9. Green Plague is in third place with 6 points, and Odin's Finest is in last with 1 point.
Lets take a look at the Eastern Conference Standings for a moment. #Swole sits on top with 12 points, Goth Bondage Party is in close second with 11 points. Who will get the first round bye for the playoffs? In third place GESH has 9 points, followed by Arctic Underoos in fourth with 7, The Green Plague in fifth with 6, Strong Bad's Awesome Team in sixth with 4, and finally Sticks and Stones in seventh with 3 and Odin's Finest in last place with 1.
Now we head over to the Western Conference where first we stop by the Northern Division. In our first match up Midway_Monster01's Varangian Guard took on MrB1129's House Verindath. In an action packed match The Varangian Guard maintained their elite status in NBP with a 2 to 0 shut out of House Verindath.
In the other match of the Western Conference North, Jonny_Mal's top ranked Springfield Atoms took on Dymntd's Ol' Angry Ears. In a shocking outcome that shows you can't take any game or opponent for granted here in NBP Ol' Angry Ears upset the (formerly) number one team in the league in a 2 to 0 rout!
The unexpected outcome in the Atoms and Angry Ears match has caused Varangian Guard to take first place in the division with 13 points, followed by Springfield Atoms with 11, Ol' Angry Ears in third with 6 and House Verindath in fourth with 4.
Now we check ou the action in our final division the Western Conference South. In our first match up, Double Pastis' Dark Theory took on Josiah_Frost's Pax Romana. Though the Lizards fought valiantly and even caused injuries against the dark elves, they were unable to overcome their agility. Dark Theory took the match up 2 to 1.
In our final game of the week ChaseJJ's The Peasant Brigade took on Silaninil's World Wide Webz squad. In a back and forth match up where both team threatened to score many times, World Wide Webz were able to finally put one in the end-zone to win the match 1 to 0.
With one week left to play Dark Theory has won the division with 12 points, followed by World Wide Webz with 6 points, Pax Romana in third with 5 points and The Peasant Brigade in fourth with 4 points.
Finally we take a quick look at the Western Conference standings. The following 3 teams will be in the playoffs either as division winners or the wild card.

Ol' Angry Ears in fourth with 6 points, World Wide Webz in fifth also with 6, Pax Romana in sixth with 5, House Verindath in seventh with 4, and The Peasant Brigade in last also with 4. That does it for the match recaps lets head on over to John Maddening with the Players of the week awards!
Thank you Crypt! Hello fans this John Maddening and I'm here to present the players of the week awards! 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 then select the week's overall stand-out 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 for the Eastern Conference Player of The Week goes to Wednesday of Goth Bondage Party. Wednesday scored an whopping 7 SPP in The Bondage Party's one-sided rout of Odin's Finest.
Next up the award for Western Conference Player of The Week goes to Hyglak from Varangian Guard. The capable Norse Blitzer racked up 5 SPP in Varangian Guards' win over House Verindath.
Finally the award for League-wide Player of The Week! Again the award goes to a member of GESH as 3LF-0001 without even playing a full 16 turns managed to produce 8 SPP in GESH'S win over The Green Plague!
