Inside The NBP Season 3 Week 7

Greetings, Fans and Blood Bowlers, and welcome to another edition of Inside The NBP! The premier weekly recap show for Nuffle Be Praised Pro! The normal announce team is on strike, I mean "holiday", so your faithful staff intern, Los Fodder, will be handling all of the duties here.

A shot from my first (and only) appearance on the Blood Bowl field. The apothecaries are confident that someday the bleeding will stop.

Let's dive right into the match recaps!

Kicking things off in the Tar & Feather division was #Swole taking on the STD Pros. With the dwarves looking to return to the glory of previous seasons, they set the tempo early and managed to pull ahead 2-0. Nurgle's blessed were able to find the endzone, but it was a bit too late with the score 2-1 at the end of regulation.

The second Tar & Feather matchup saw Strong Bad's Awesome Team facing the Stinking Geysers. Coach Stimee looked to stem the recent skid the Awesome Team has been having and the Geysers were looking to grab the win and sit atop the division for a spell. However, neither team could deal the deciding blow and the match ended 1-1.

In the Deep Dark division, the Kingdom of the Misfit looked to knock down the Skaven of Rats Off To Ya!! and try to close the gap. While the Bretonnians managed to cull a fair number of rats, they did so at the expense of scoring and lost 2-0. 

If you can't beat 'em, KILL 'EM!

Up next was Loki's Toys and the Goth Bondage Party. With both teams leaning on the throttle, even the fans got in on the carnage! When the final whistle blew, the Norse had blanked the Dark Elves 2-0.

Did I mention this was in the Norse Home stadium?

In the Western Conference, we stop at the Ale & Anarchy division for The Cure facing the Springfield Atoms. In a methodical game of back and forth, the Atoms were unsuccessful to score, falling 1-0 to The Cure.

The next matchup was a Necromantic Undead showcase with Das Slaytanic Wermacht pitted against Nekromancies Folly. In another hotly contested matchup, the Wermacht were able to just outpace the opposition, posting a 1-0 win.

Over in the Salt Works, we continue our Necromantic coverage with Underworld: Blood Wars and the Speedy Demons. The Blood Wars team continued their momentum since the mid-season break, putting up a 3-1 win.

Not content with just a casualty, Nihilus also posted the final TD for the Necromantic team.

We next move to the Europa Conference with our first stop in to the Old World division, were the Orion Magics faced the Dangerous Warriors. Despite an impressive number of casualties, the Warriors were unable to stop the Wood Elves, falling 2-1.

A spread offense helped the Zesinil secure the go ahead score.

Over in the Beheaded Kings division, we first see the matchup of the high elves of Old Orleans Saints #2 and the norse of Lets Go Beserk!!!! Not wanting to disappoint a home crows, the Saints managed a late equalizer to nab a 1-1 draw.

A rare sight these days, an uninjured High Elf!

Our last matchup of the week was the Rockport Redbacks and Kiss of Death. With two-thirds of the game a near washout of torrential rain, and a T15 interception, the Chaos squad was able to hold off the Redbacks, winning 1-0.

The Redbacks never hold back, as this now dead beastman can attest.

That does it for the match recaps, time to point out the Conference Players of the Week

In the Eastern Conference, this prize goes to... THE HOME FANS OF LOKI's TOYS! These rowdy idiots accounted for 3 seperate casualties in the game including killing a berserker!

Talk about a rabid fan base!

In the Western Conference, the Player of the Week honors are awarded to Nihilus Forever-Hungry for his efforts on both sides of the ball in this week's game.

Taking out a Blodging Tackler early and scoring late, Nihilus earned his salary for sure.

In the Europa conference, the Player of the Week goes to Peste Dha Shyesh of Kiss of Death. His T15 interception secured the win for the Chaos crew.

To be fair, both teams have similar uniforms so it may have just been a misunderstanding.
