Season 8 Individual Awards – Pro & CL

So the excitement of the post season is drawing to a close. Sacerdotalist has won yet another championship and 2 filthy wood elf coaches about to battle it out for the pro title. Preach is hard at work to ensure we have 64 engaged coaches all lined up for season 9 (accept your ticket).  This allows us a good chance to look back at the regular season that has just finished, applaud those players who went to the depth of their reserves to help their team achieve greatness. If that greatness wasn’t achieved, well that was the rest of the teams fault!

In a slight change to format (for simplicity and to allow a quicker turnaround in post season planning), I will be presenting the top 10 players in each category. So lets get to it and look at those 10 players who wanted personal glory, hogging the ball and crossing into the end zones to the acclaim of the fans!

With 10 touchdowns each, Rhino and Uhlsanel lead the way. Well done. However, neither came close to the record of 14 set by U-Turd…I mean Uhlsanel in season 7. A couple of teams managed multiple entries in the chart, demonstrating the scoring prowess of their teams.

In the challenge league, Victor Steiner-Davion of the Kell Hounds also topped the table with an impressive 10 TDs. This tied the record set by Rhino (see above) from season 7.

Next up we have those players who have the lucrative glove, mitt, gauntlet sponsorships. The ball is so often in their hands that these players are just raking it in. Here are the top 10 rushers:-

Congratulations to Ramjet of the Plague Ridden Cowboys who topped the table with an impressive 500 yards. He left all his competitors in the dust and is currently being tipped to be the next Griff. But with horns. And ooze. Still he was 38 yards short of the season 6 record set by Chasing Papi who again was high in this seasons table.

10 Sir Alonne The Bell Keepers GalfonOrbit 7 298

In the CL, Ratcollector of Dead Metal got the most blisters on his already flaky hands with 486 yards running with the ball.  This is a new record! Well done to MGiteau12 for this impressive achievement. As a reward, here is the ghoul itself, in all its glory.

Lets move on to those players who didn’t want to get hit. They would rather give the ball to a teammate and not exert themselves too much by running with it themselves. The top 10 passers were:-

# Player Name Team Coach GP InflictedMetersPassing
1 FumbleFingers Harrelsons loulizcsc 7 284
2 Umbean The Blitzkriegers Stuntmandidi 6 210
3 Kjelle Revang of the dwarfs royke033 7 182

8 Thetzh Rodentia Ad Nauseam ntb_99 5 78
9 Chasing Papi Hopeless Necromantics seriousjest 7 70
10 Riddar Witch’s Coven Gerdleah 7 70

‘Top of the Pops’ was Fumble Fingers, star thrower of the Harrelsons. With AG6 its not surprising to see this guy accurately bomb the ball all over the field. While impressive, it is still far behind the league record set by Billy “Magician” Graham of Nuffle’s Holy Rollers. He set an incredible 356 yards back in season 5. Shout out to Kjelle. A dwarf came 3rd overall in the season. Nicely done.

9 Nedx Doomhead Madonatron V Shaniqua Bot Mercy_F_Lush 6 54
10 Dokz Backstabber Taurawna Titans momomcphee 6 44

The challenge league, probably due to a preference of hitting each other instead, seem to throw the ball significantly less. Top yards thrown with 154, was Windmill of the Disco Divas. Great job. Despite being far behind the pros, this in fact is a new record for the CL!! Take a bow Windmill and Balwen2013.

Who was on the other end of these passes? I’m glad you asked! Lets move on to the top receivers in the pro’s for season 8:-

# Player Name Team Coach GP InflictedCatches
1 Sililith Sprintchamp Harrelsons loulizcsc 7 11
2 Slick n Dirty White Owlz The_Stu176 7 10
3 Dancing Leaves Harrelsons loulizcsc 6 9

7 Stephen Pearcy Snitchburgh PieRats Whiskey_Tornado 6 5
8 Count Benjamin of Carson Mousillon Morningstars sturmjarl 7 5
9 Banlaen The Blitzkriegers Stuntmandidi 6 4
10 Hans Lamprecht Los Pumas discodavo 5 4

With 11 catches taken, Sililith Sprintchamp of the Harrelsons came out ahead of all his rivals.Good hands! Though this was short of his teammate’s record of 14 catches, set by Uhlsanel set in season 7. Once again Harrelsons and Snitchburgh Pierats managed to get 2 entries onto the leaderboard. Well done.

Meanwhile, in the challenge league:-

# Player Name Team Coach GP InflictedCatches
1 Victor Steiner-Davion Kell Hounds Caven08 7 11
2 Arne Slodar Roosters Impact Dkchams 7 8
3 Raptor InGen Apocalypse s-c-wyatt 7 7

8 Sir Cuban Pete Order ofThe Holy Squirrel AndyCuk 7 5
9 Shamir Sideswipe ATX Longthorns dmdouble0 6 5
10 Indrek Pawlovski Lush mightyT363 6 4

Also with 11 catches and quite clear of anyone else in the league, was Victor Steiner-Davion. This is a new challenge league record!!! This is the 2nd table this season that Victor topped the league in. A warning to those in the pro’s. To record this excellent achievement, here is Victor in all his glory.

Now lets move on to the final ball handling skill. Those players that really frustrated their opposition by stopping a certain touchdown (so said the opposition coach!) by stealing the ball out of the air. This is season on season, the hardest record to break. And guess what? It wasn’t broken in either league! 2 interceptions by a single player in the league is still the record within the pro’s and the CL had a new group of players equal the record of 1.

9 Luna Tic The Midnight Howlers doneagle_ 6 1
# Hyde The Midnight Howlers doneagle_ 7 1

The Midnight Howlers with 3 interceptions in the 7 games. Notably one of these and the Rodentia Ad Nauseam interception was against The Witch’s Coven. Not that I haven’t let it go. Or that they cost me victories instead of defeats. Damn you Nuffle!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There weren’t 10 interceptions in the CL last season so only 8 listed.

6 Kroxlantha Slaan Seers Josiah_Frost 7 1
7 Kardel the Disoriented Abomination Nation VpowerV 7 1
8 Blavod the Black Dead Metal MGiteau12 7 1

So lets move on to those players who only get their hands near the ball when they are smacking it and the opposition player at the same time. The Biggest Brutes are those players who knocked out their opposition and sent them to the dugout, where they would hopefully be tended to by some babes.  In the pro’s:-

# Player Name Team Coach GP InflictedKO
1 Mad Frankie Fraser Plague Ridden Cowboys BernieBuffon 7 11
2 Merodach the Roarer Hopeless Necromantics seriousjest 7 10
3 Ikamute Slice Snitchburgh PieRats Whiskey_Tornado 7 10

8 Sub Urban The Blitzkriegers Stuntmandidi 6 8
9 Gruntosaurus Dino rock BERZO1985 7 7
10 Munchelstiltskin Snitchburgh PieRats Whiskey_Tornado 7 7

With an impressive 1st season in the pro’s, Mad Frankie Fraser of the Plague Ridden Cowboys sent 11 players off the field for some enforced rest. Good job. Still this pales in comparison to the incredible 15 set by Wrath of The Seven Deadly Sins, which was set in season 6.

In the Challenge League:-

# Player Name Team Coach GP InflictedKO
1 Loxosceles Reclusa Abomination Nation VpowerV 7 12
2 Orgrimar Tainted Destroyers BigBadger01 7 9
3 Foulin’ Gerhart Dead Metal MGiteau12 7 8
4 Holofernes Bluefur White Walkers II Gimlik_SWE 7 7
5 Pwyform Cutter Rat race rushers jaredwagner90 7 7

8 Testorclese Stormreavers BC gooner8829 7 7
9 Blavod the Black Dead Metal MGiteau12 7 7
10 Farkan Steelfist Taurawna Titans momomcphee 6 6

Based on the previous tables above, I had high hopes that these records would be right up the CL’s street. Sure enough they managed to put up a record higher than the pro’s this season with 12 knock outs. Once again, a nurgle player sits on top with Loxosceles Reclusa of Abomination Nation inflicting the pain. This is a new Challenge League record!! Well done VpowerV. Come on down Loxosceles Reclusa!

Next on the ladder of pain are injuries. So who out there among the teams have caused the most pain and damage to their opponents. For the pro’s:-

# Player Name Team Coach GP InflictedCasualties
1 Tobi Revang of the dwarfs royke033 7 11
2 Count Benjamin of Carson Mousillon Morningstars sturmjarl 7 11
3 Mad Frankie Fraser Plague Ridden Cowboys BernieBuffon 7 11
4 Gramzla The Pumpkin Kings DwarfGiant 7 8
5 Lord Gutwrench Plague Ridden Cowboys BernieBuffon 7 8
6 Ullow Tail Magrita Misfits beerz1313 7 7
7 Eviscerator Skuttle Butts Spawn_Of_Cthulu 6 7
8 Skrycut Repulsive Ratlings StuffnJunk84 7 7
9 Ikamute Slice Snitchburgh PieRats Whiskey_Tornado 7 7
10 Royce Gracie Los Pumas discodavo 6 6

There is a 3 way tie! Tobi, Count Benjamin of Carson and Mad Frankie Fraser (again) caused 11 casualties in the regular season. Which is an average of just over 1.5 a game. These 3 were far ahead of anyone else in the league. So if you are facing 1 of these 3 teams, there’s a good chance you know who the blitz is coming from! Still this pales in comparison to the ‘legend’ that is Wade who chalked up an incredible 15 casualties.

This time the challenge league couldn’t keep up with the pro’s in this bash department:-

# Player Name Team Coach GP InflictedCasualties
1 Holofernes Bluefur White Walkers II Gimlik_SWE 7 9
2 Fluffy Speedo heroes Glowworm-707 7 9
3 Loxosceles Reclusa Abomination Nation VpowerV 7 9
4 Rakmar Stormreavers BC gooner8829 7 8
5 Hammurabi Sinspitter Hashut’s Hellhammers Sacerdotalist 7 8
6 Markkan Fastfoot Taurawna Titans momomcphee 5 7
7 Orgrimar Tainted Destroyers BigBadger01 7 7
8 Neville long beard Hogwartz itsa11ogre0 6 7
9 Bonecrusher Stormreavers BC gooner8829 7 7
10 Seamus Fitzpatrick Kell Hounds Caven08 7 7

Again we have a 3 way tie on 9 injuries apiece. Holofernes Bluefur , Fluffy and Loxosceles Reclusa (again!) sat on top of the heap of bodies they left on the field. This was just the 1 off the record set by Eviscerator in season 7.   Being outbashed by a rat!

Onto those players who just take to release some homicidal tendancies. Lets see who comes out as the most bloodthirsty in the pro’s:-

# Player Name Team Coach GP InflictedDead
1 Gramzla The Pumpkin Kings DwarfGiant 7 2
2 Gruntosaurus Dino rock BERZO1985 7 2
3 Gilli Rockhelm Granite City Grimbeards Just_Stevie13 6 2
4 Jelle Revang of the dwarfs royke033 7 2
5 Ikamute Slice Snitchburgh PieRats Whiskey_Tornado 7 2
6 White “Ferocious” Fang Necro Feel-Ya hezekiah87 7 2
7 Lazsor of Black Marsh Black Marsh Monitors BMFJiggs1981 4 1
8 Boromir Lord of the Skinks Lazertrip91 6 1
9 Wyre the Lethal Hopeless Necromantics seriousjest 7 1
10 Lepto Spirosis II Hopeless Necromantics seriousjest 7 1

A 6 way tie for 2 kills apiece is only half the number Nice ‘n’ Sticky caused for Just Norsin’ Around back in season 5. Still a good effort but more required in season 9 to make a real impression.

The challenge league again managed to out perform the pro’s in this area:-

2 Streaky from Missouri BlackIron SwampDonkeys CamoCritter6669 7 2

8 Foulin’ Gerhart Dead Metal MGiteau12 7 2
9 Farkan Steelfist Taurawna Titans momomcphee 6 1
10 Austin Brand Kell Hounds Caven08 5 1

I told you so! I warned you all of this player but did you heed my advice? Pre-season I picked out Neville long beard as someone to watch out for (http://www.mmlpro.com/news/getting-to-know-you/). Well now he tops the most kills in a season with 3! Well done Neville! Here is your prize.

Finally we end these stats with the unsung heroes. Those players who week after week step onto that field, the line of scrimmage and literally take 1 for the team. Lets check out the best punching bags for the pro’s:-

Within the challenge league, there is another rat sitting on top of the cheese:-

Massbam and Longrod von Hugendong (aptly named) refuse to back down despite making 6 visits each to the knocked out bin. Your team appreciates your sacrifice.

So there you have it. Another regular season complete and a few new players added to the annals of Blood Bowl greatness. Thanks so much to the Count himself, Fnords for the awesome player cards. Helped to give this article some much needed sparkle. I will end this with the tables showing the records held in each league for those looking for glory in season 9. The eagle-eyed will notice I excluded interceptions from the challenge league table. You all know why!
