I have a whole team full mediocre ones. the problem is I have noooooo defense. if they go out, i'm done. i spent money on who knows what.





bubba,
i've not got a loan. I made it a pretty big deal. didnt' win games at the beginning of the season so i was in money trouble, but I made it happen anyway.


that's how mine would read.

The good news is, if I actually start to win I could climb into 4th. there is still time.

I wouldn't worry about me to much. My goalies are hmmm lets just say they aren't the best.

I think this is going to be a building season for old Brak :wink:

And that was how they never scored again.

I gotta tell ya, Jack: When the score was 8-1 in your favour near the end of the 1st period, I was thinking that perhaps my winning days were numbered. Had my engine of doom run out of steam? Was my nigh impenetrable castle turning into the sand from which it was formed? Was my soda of dreams down to its last carbonated bubble of hope? Or maybe... maybe I was hallucinating... maybe I'd run myself over on the way home from work today and I was really in a hospital... No.. no, it's fo'real.

And then, as if sensing my trepidation, general melodrama, and progression through the K?bler-Ross cycle, the song "Dizzy" by Orgy came on, and my 'Hooks said "Right; that's enough o' this crap."

Final score: 18-8

And lo, Dizzy breathed a relieved sigh... but only when the game was truly over, 'cause the Patched did most certainly not just roll over and die. I remember that game against Chance, y'know. It's in the book of grudges.

Dig it.

Yeah, if my dial-up wasn't so slow I might be able to watch the re-play and figure something out about what happened. But if past history is any clue, that wouldn't help either.

I don't know why I thought I could climb back out of the cellar. That would involve winning out more than likely, and I never thought I could do that.

Maybe you guys were bunched a lot more at 4th earlier..

Nice come-back dizzy the better team won.

Well, Ett's Creature easily beat the snot out of the Evil Laugh. After visiting the blood bank for a refill, the team is hoping this and some orcade will be enough to keep the team together for the rematch.

Congrats, Ettiene!

Must say this team has been pleasantly surprising. I think the biggest difference between the top two teams and the rest seem to be the goalies ability to keep the opponents from scoring. Every one else apart from the top two teams have had more than 140 points scored against them. Dizzy seems to be cruising at this stage with more than double the amount of points scored by all teams except the Creatures of the night. Looks like its gonna be an interesting race for the final two spots as even Mad jackal in seventh spot can still make the playoffs with a couple of wins. So at the half way stage here are the standings:

Overlord's Win-Loss-Tie Points For - Against
Dizzy's Meathooks 11-1-0 423 - 95
Ettiene's Creatures of the Night 10-1-1 327 - 80
Tuneloon's Parasites 7-5-0 208 - 147
Bubbauk's kicked in the #$@3$ 6-6-0 215 - 153
Brakgwar's Old Orc's with Canes 5-6-1 231 - 163
Chance's Mwuhahaha 4-8-0 194 - 263
Jack's Patched 4-8-0 141 - 201
Brett's Administrators of Pain 0-12-0 59 - 696
41 Championships
15 Second places
8 Third places
Avg Finish: 2.22
Undefeated teams:
Bluebulls 1st, 8th
Domination 4th,5th, 7th
Experimental morons 2nd,8th

Do we have to talk about goalies?!? I have one goalie in regeneration now, and here are my TEAM'S goalie standings:

Goalies
Orc Name Saves Shots Faced Ratio
Fyxmigid 3 3 1.0000
Afwinrooq 1 1 1.0000
Guivogo 1 1 1.0000
Gumnulek 1 1 1.0000
Hyzleoru 1 1 1.0000
Wizzagmik 33 46 0.7174 <- G1
Gijimbud 54 82 0.6585 <- G1

Gerociaum 43 68 0.6324
Gezuzirt 3 6 0.5000
Lurperlimb 3 6 0.5000
Zawzinnif 3 6 0.5000
Hagdorum 9 19 0.4737
Gagtafa 29 62 0.4677
Hildgoykif 11 24 0.4583
Xhauufdel 5 17 0.2941
Bibhixjoin 4 30 0.1333
Wowtawdemmy 1 8 0.1250
Asweecle 1 9 0.1111
Aikerlrho 1 10 0.1000
Hokham 1 29 0.0345
Bevyhand 0 1 0.0000

That's right, 21 players put in time at goalie. :shock:

The league's top 10 goalies are:
Top 10 Goalies
Orc Name Saves Shots Faced Ratio
Ettiene's Woklufbew 109 130 0.8385
Dizzy's Hofzenzel 98 117 0.8376
Tuneloon's Ashgvzy 131 158 0.8291
Bubbauk's Catmylvag 139 170 0.8176
Ettiene's Wizcducriv 104 128 0.8125
Brakgwar's Itgurneg 46 58 0.7931
Brakgwar's Gozztusryz 79 100 0.7900
Jack's Dukdarwy 110 140 0.7857
Jack's Boxysfo 72 94 0.7660
Bubbauk's Wuqadrhix 106 143 0.7413

Notice how my starting goalies are below all of these with save % of 71.7 and 65.6%? This could be a problem...

Just tyring to keep my guys out of regen at the moment...and failing!

Lost a defender today, one of the good ones. Not my best, but i had to rotate them to 2nd line for some much needed rest, and they didn't exactly get it.

Ettiene's Creatures did it again. I think 5th place is out of shot for me, I'm going to try and hold on to 6th.

After receiving a poundng from Ett, I now Face Brak. I think one of we should name them Left Hook and Right Hook! :D

Good luck in the upcoming game!

I am Jack's shattered dreams.

Postby Dizzy » Mon May 28, 2007 8:17 pm

Poor Jack... poor, poor Jack. It happened again, didn't it? :(

At 7:32 to go in the 2nd period: Jack's winning 12 - 0.

At 7:31 to go: 'Hooks say "Right; that's enough o' this crap."

Final score: 15 - 12 for Dizzy. Let me tell you... It was one of them "close ones". I only pulled even with you at 5:04 left in the 3rd, and then, after pulling ahead, watched in wonder and awe as your brave lads, tired and full of brass-knuckle marks, made two heroic, tear-jerking, and very slow drives at my 3-pt goal. When I saw what was happening, I put my Chariots of Fire mp3 on. It would have been <sniff> so beautiful <sniff>, had they scored... :cry: <snork>

P.S. 3 Kills for Bibnavatnem. You shouldn't have insulted his mother...
