Rosters, Style Modifiers, and RP Permissions
You will earn Roleplay Bonus points for submitting a roster, and a more detailed and well-presented roster can be worth more points. At the very least it should list the players on your team and a home field for your team to play home games at. Additional coaching staff, player details, and any other info that could be useful for your opponents' RPs can be included.

You may provide a Style Modifier, any number between -5.00 and +5.00, with your roster that determines how defensively or aggressively your team plays. A -5.00 team is ultra-defensive, a 0.00 team is balanced, and a +5.00 team is hyper-aggressive. You may request a change in your style modifier once during the tournament by contacting the host.

It's highly recommended you include a permissions box that gives your groupmates guidelines for how to roleplay your matches. A sample permissions box is provided below:

Code: Select all
My opponent, if they RP first, may do the following:
[b]Choose my scorers:[/b]
[b]Godmod scoring events:[/b]
[b]RP injuries to my players:[/b]
[b]Godmod Injuries to my players:[/b]
[b]Suspend my players:[/b]
[b]Godmod suspension events[/b]:
[b]Godmod other events[/b]:


Other Tidbits

Weather conditions, time of kickoff, and information on the Head Referee will be provided for the playoff games in Chromatika. Feel free to use them if you wish. If you'd like to submit a Referee to me, please either send me a Telegram or Direct Message me on Discord with their name, nationality, and how strict they are/how much they allow players to play.

Welcome to Chromatika


Overview: Chromatika is a nation composing of a group of islands located in the far northeast of Anaia. There is the main island of Chromatik Island itself, Urrhed Island to the southwest, Myana Island to the northwest, and the Wilderness Preserve of Dorri Island to the northeast.

History: The tale of Chromatik history is one filled with mystery, wonder, tragedy, and determination to make something that is better.

Chromatika one day popped into existence by mysterious forces that have since been identified as a group of extraplanar angels known as The Enlightened Ones. It's still unclear where the populace came from. The Chromatik Party held sway over the land, implementing its seven-color caste system, until the Rainbow Revolution happened, led by the Chromatik National Team in World Cup 75. This resulted in the first Manager of Chromatika - Franscesca Larriet-Cortes - being martyred.

A group of revolutionaries called the Shadow Writers were able to gather elements of the Chromatik Army, Air Force, and Navy to overthrow the Chromatik Party. Alina Krasnikova, one of the leaders of this movement, was the first Premier. Chromatika then ran into another hiccup when the time of the first democratic election came, with the Checkers Party, formed by a lot of the remnants of the Chromatik Party, tried to take control of the election. Aided by one of the Enlightened Ones, the Rainbow Party was able to, with help with their Atlantian Oceanian neighbors, stop the forces behind the Checkers Party and ensure a safe election.

Recently, the Chromatik government is led by a wary coalition between the Rainbow Party and the New Light Party, with another election looming on the horizon. The country remains divided in matters of welfare, reparation, divide caused by the previous caste system. Sport remains one of the biggest things that draw the country together - and gridiron is one of its favorites.

Cultural Notes: While visiting Chromatika, please observe the following:

Transportation: Chromatik highways aren't very wide - two lanes per side at most. There is a very expansive railroad system that was originally used for troop movement, but is has been refitted to serve the everyday citizen. A subway system and a bus system in the bigger cities have also been established. Franscesca Larriet-Cortes International Airport is also not very big, only serving regional flights. For the tournament, the nation will be accepting team planes to land, but it'd be best if you flew to Quebec City, Cathair, Jhanna, or Villeneuve first. Ferries run from the Islands of Myana and Urrhed to and from the main island on the hour.

Ticketing and Visas: All visitors with a valid ticket will get a two-week visa that includes the match that they will be attending. For those attending multiple matches, they will be allowed to stay up to three days after the latest match or two weeks, whichever is longer. Tickets will be distributed as follows: 35% to each nation partaking in the match, 10% to Chromatiks, 15% to people from other nations, and the remaining 5% to be included with any of the tickets that aren’t sold by a predetermined point in time (usually 3 days before the match).

For matches featuring the Chromatik National Team, the distribution is a bit different: 45% for Chromatika, 30% for the visiting team, 20% to people from other nations, and the remaining 5% to be included with any of the tickets that aren’t sold by the predetermined point in time. Any press and dignitaries’ tickets will be counted among the residual 5%.

Also of note: ticket scalping (buying and selling tickets in front of the stadium to would-be buyers) is illegal in Chromatika. If you want to get a ticket in that fashion, make sure you are at least a mile away from the stadium, or don’t get caught. Otherwise, you will be fined and your ticket will be confiscated.

Laws: Chromatik legal code is a bit on the stricter side. The Chromatik Police, known as the CPD, are a well-trained, swift response group with a sizable presence. Chromatka does tend to side more on prevention than reaction. For an enjoyable stay, please note the following laws that visitors should be aware of:

  • The legal age of purchasing and possession of liquor and tobacco is 18. Stores are required to card anyone that appears to be less than 25 years of age.
  • The legal age of purchasing cannabis and other marijuana related products is also 18, and the limit of purchasing cannabis without a medical prescription is two grams per visit.
  • The importing of any alcohol, tobacco, cannabis, or other drugs is illegal without declaration. With declaration, up to a liter of alcohol, two cartons of cigarettes, and three grams of cannabis can be brought in.
  • Having multiple cars on a lane meant for one car is a finable offense, and the offending drivers’ licenses can be revoked.
  • Jaywalking is a serious offense in Chromatika. If cited three times, the offender can face serious fines and jail time should they continue to offend. Don’t do it!
  • As previously stated, ticket scalping is a finable offense that can lead to the ticket being confiscated.
  • Foreign visitors cannot bring firearms or any kind of weapons into the country without a specific license and accompanying paperwork. Even then, the weapon must be disassembled and ammunition shipped separatedly.
  • Foreign visitors are not allowed to bring more than 10,000 NSD or 25,000 NMS in cash into the country without proper declaration and accompanying paperwork.
  • For any other questions about legal matters, please call 99 1133-4455, the Chromatik Legal Hotline, or visit chromatiklaws.en.cr.

Currency: The currency of Chromatika is the National Mark. the exchange rate is at a respectful 2.5 Chromatik National Mark per 1 NS Dollar. Cost of living is rather low in Chromatika, as the government provides most things through taxes. A bottle of water costs 1 NMS, a good meal about 7, and a new car around 24,000. Please come to Chromatika with all your currency changed to NSD, as we don't provide exchange services from other currencies.

Climate: Chromatika is a rather cold nation, with the average temperature being 65 F in the summer and down to 11 F in the winter. The northern parts tend to be colder, while Myana and Urrhed tend to be a bit warmer. There is a temperate jungle in Eyrods where the temperature can spike up a bit more. It doesn't rain much, but snows a fair bit; winds don't gust that much, either. Climate-wise, it's a rather cold, boring, land. The World Bowl is taking place in the late fall/early winter, which could lead to some inclement weather - please pay attention to the forecasts.

Language: The official languages of Chromatika are English, Korean, French, Mandarin, and Russian. The most commonly used one in English. Depending on where you visit, you can hear one of the other being spoken interchangeably. Most Chromatik peoples know at least three of the five languages, with one of them being English. Pockets of other language speakers do exist, but are more rare.

Cuisine: Chromatik food is usually spicy, filling, and served warm. There are a few cold dishes, but as the country itself is very cool/cold, Chromatiks prefer hot dishes. Korean, French, Chinese, and Eastern European cuisines are all available for consumption.

General Populace: The Chromatik people are respectful, polite, and usually keep to themselves. If you don't bug them, they won't bug you. That isn't to say that they aren't nice, as Chromatiks get by with most everyone. Just don't make fun of the past, don't make light the actions of the Chromatik Party, and enjoy your visit!

Note: You'll often recognize that the Capacity of a venue and the Seats are different. That's because traditionally, Chromatik stadiums were also the place that people would go to in case of evacuation due to natural disasters. The Capacity is the number of people that can fit in the stadium comfortably; the number of seats is the number of actual seats that are available to view the football games. For the ones where seats aren't listed, Capacity indicates number of seats.

Round of Sixteen: Heartland District

Pùr
Pùr is the biggest city in the Heartlands, and was the capital of the District until it moved to Anfanhar a while ago. This is where most of Chromatika's farmland is located. It is from this district that the nation generates most of its domestic grains and livestock. Without Pùr, Chromatika would either starve or go even further into foreign debt. The people are a bit rough-and-tumble, yet cordial, and decency and courtesy is prized heavily in this area.

Venue: Riders' Arena (Cap. 35,210)
A small arena for a tight-knit bunch of fans. It's not a flashy stadium, but one that gets its job done, and a place that all Pùrites know about. The sun can play havoc while it's setting, though, so if you play here in the evening, be careful about that.

Schedule
R1: Drawkland vs. Abanhfleft

Anfanhar
Anfanhar is known mostly for one thing: the country's only amusement park to date. AnfanWorld is an entity of much contention among the Chromatik populace as Anfanhar has passed quite a few laws to lower taxes being paid by the company just to keep it around. It's turned this town into a tourist town and given it much life - which led to it being the District Capital as of a few years ago. Anfanhar toes the line of the dichotomy of being a town for the visitor and a town for the resident well.

Venue: Dragon's Nest (Cap. 48,210)
Having the appearance of a literal nest, Dragon's Nest is a feat of engineering. It overlooks the tallest roller-coaster of AnfanWorld, and the parkgoers' happy screams can be heard even from within the stadium. The winds from the nearby hills can cause a bit of problem with the ball, but it's nothing that a seasoned player can't handle.

Schedule:
R2: Kohnhead vs. HUElavia

Round of Sixteen: Rainbow District

Lanar
Located at the Western side of the Rainbow District, Lanar was founded first, and is the older brother. Lanar is known for producing most of the nation's vehicles. Viper Motors (previously Imhar Automotive) is located there, being the only automotive maker of Chromatika. Being by the coast means a lot of foreign cars come through here as well. Of the three biggest cities in the District, Lanar has the most historical significance and appearance; its denizens carry that with pride.

Venue: Hawks' Nest (Cap. 112,000, 38,000 Seats)
The Hawks' Nest was made to resemble a bird's nest with the field being where the eggs would lie in a bird's nest. The sloping roof does bounce back sound onto the field making it one of the loudest venues in Chromatika.

Schedule
R3: Banija vs. TJUN-ia

Sanar
The younger brother, Sanar is known for two things. First, it's where Z'ai'ai's lumber ends up to be turned into furniture. Second, it's where the headquarters of the Death Templars Law Firm is located. DTLF was the sponsor of the Chromatik League for many years and one of the biggest companies in Chromatika, helping now only settle law cases but also fund a lot of philanthropic efforts to aid the poor.

Venue: The Hive (Cap. 122,000, 42,000 Seats)
Don't go to The Hive unless you don't mind being a bit squished. It's the densest stadium, and was specifically designed that way to emulate a hive and how full it is of bees. The field is the most open part of the entire stadium, but the absence of a roof means you're at the mercy of the elements.

Schedule
R4: Ko-oren vs. Sarzonia

Round of Sixteen: Coastal District

Pria
Pria is at the northeastern coast of Chromatika, and is where the ferry to the Island of Dorri is located. Dorri is a wildlife preserve that doesn't have any cities, just an observatory for scientists. Besides being a research town, Pria also does some fishing and watersports. It is the surfing capital of Chromatika, as waves can get pretty high with a favorable wind, leading to ideal surfing conditions.

Venue: The Pack (Cap. 67,290, 19,000 Seats)
The Pack is one of the oldest stadiums in Chromatika, and its architecture has a nostalgic feel of a bygone age. There have been numerous attempts for Prian government to open a new stadium, but the fans have shot it down time and time again, claiming that their stadium does just fine. It is rather distinct from the rest, a glimpse into Chromatika's past.

Schedule
R5: Gyatso-kai vs. Cassadaigua

Lhor
Located in the northeast corner of Chromatika, right by the ocean, Lhor was historically a whaling town, and now a place that is famous for its whalewatching tours. Otherwise, Lhor is famous for being the fashion Capital of Chromatika - although most of the modeling still happens in Chromia. A lot of young people live in Lhor because it's a small yet fashionable town.

Venue: The Cove (Cap. 51,265; 28,000 Seats)
What's not to like about this stadium? Located right by the ocean, with an aquarium across the street. Beautiful view of the ocean and the sunset. The focus of the town, the jewel of the city... It's a pretty place to be.

Schedule
R6: Chromatika vs. Quebec & Shingoryeo

Round of Sixteen: Myana Island

Myana
Biggest port city in Chromatika. Second biggest city in Chromatika. Naval headquarters of Chromatika. Second biggest fishing town of Chromatika. Tourist attraction. If Chromia is the heart of Chromatika, Myana is its soul - and it very well is aware of it, and proud.

Venue: Island Dome (Cap. 133,000; 35,000 Seats)
The Island Dome is located five miles from downtown Myana, towards the interior of the Island. It is in the shape of a boat to commemorate the naval forces, and there is a cannon that goes off every time the home team scores. (For the World Bowl, the cannon will fire every touchdown that is scored.)

Schedule
R7: Saint Kanye vs. Ranoria

Eyrods
One of the unexplained phenomenon of Chromatika is the climate of Eyrods, located on Myana Island. The Eastern half of Myana Island is a temperate jungle, teeming with wildlife and milder weather. Nobody is quite sure of why this is, but that is why Eyrods is the zoological capital of Chromatika. Eyrodi are appreciative of wildlife and have learned to coexist with it. The city itself is at the Coast, while the Jungle lies at the southern end.

Venue: The Jungle (Cap. 74,590, 26,000 Seats)
The greenest stadium in Chromatika, and we're not just talking about the color scheme. The stadium is made of recyclable matter - seats made of reused plastic, etc. It's a marvel of engineering and architecture, and it's not unusual to have birds fly over the stadium often. Don't worry - there's a clear roof that usually goes over it to protect you from anything that might fall from them.

Schedule:
R8: Delaclava vs. South Newlandia

Quarterfinals: Urrhed Island

Urrheddiao
Located at the southernmost point of Urrhed, Urrheddiao is the seafood capital of Chromatika. It is here that most of the fishing fleets call home, and over 85% of the nation's fish is caught here. The football culture is great here as well, as United started in the second tier and worked its way up to be one of the greatest teams within the nation before the league was disbanded. The fans are quite loyal here, and the rivalry with fellow Islanders Myana is something to watch.

Venue: United Center (Cap. 120,000; 28,000 Seats)
Initially, United owners wanted the stadium to be right by the water. However, safety concerns over the huge tidal waves in the winter forced the stadium to be about fifteen miles off the coast. The stadium can be transformed into a place where a lot of the city can take shelter in in the event of a tsunami or a typhoon, as it sits at the highest point on the island.

Schedule
Q1: R1 Winner vs. R2 Winner

Staramara
Located on the northern half of Urrhed Island, Staramara has been called the Gridiron Capital of Chromatika, with so many great players graduating from its schools. They do very well in the Chromatik Football League (Gridiron), and the Staramara Tech University Lava have really turned out to be a handful for its opponents in the NSCF.

Venue: Johnston Memorial Stadium (Cap. 4,500)
This is the smallest venue to host a match in the World Bowl, but the fans that are lucky to be there will get one heck of a match. An old-fashioned field with modern additions, this is the dream venue of any true gridiron fan.

Schedule
Q2: R3 Winner vs. R4 Winner

Quarterfinals: Mountain District

Felswyr
A town known for its ski resorts, a winter paradise. Felswyr is located about dead center of the Mountain District, right by Mt. Niai. It is known for tourism and for being the winter Capital of Chromatika. It is also where Felswyr State University is located - the home of the Firehawks.

Venue: Firehawks' Roost (Cap. 38,000)
This is the home venue of Felswyr State University, and regardless of who shows up, all the FSU diehards will be here, cheering on. The stadium is still very high above sea level - around 5,921 feet - and that could cause a problem for anyone who isn't used to the atmosphere. It's the typical collegiate stadium, with some Chromatik flair - and if the Iron Legion make it here, just watch out...

Schedule
Q3: R5 Winner vs. R6 Winner

Z'ai'ai
Located at the Southeast corner of Chromatika, Z'ai'ai is seated by Mt. Kùrn, the highest point in Chromatika, with elevation of 17,254 ft. It is a rare place where you can experience the mountain and the ocean at the same time within an hour's drive. Pronounced 'Zee-aye-aye", it's also the cuisine capital of Chromatika due to the variety of ingredients that are available from both the mountains and the ocean. A lot of mining is done at Mt. Kùrn, and logging is also done on a sustainable level and sent to Sanar to be turned into furniture.

Venue: Z'ai'ai Field (Cap. 113,000, 40,000 Seats)
The biggest stadium in the District, and an iconic stadium that boasts the view of the ocean and of the mountain on a clear day. The pride of Z'ai'ai, and a beautiful sight.

Schedule
Q4: R7 Winner vs. R8 Winner

Semifinal/Final: Capital District

Alnio
Alnio is the technological capital of Chromatika, although it's right next to Chromatik City. Located just thirty-one miles East of Chromia, almost dead center of the Capital District, it is in Alnio that Black Raven Technologies is located. Alnio has lots of blue collar workers and used to be completely populated by Greens on the Chromatik Scale. Now, the city is busy with a lot of Red, Orange, and Yellow people being educated, along with some of the Blue, Indigo, and Violets who wanted to be scientists there to learn as well.

Venue: RCK Field (Cap. 100,400, 32,000 Seats)
RCK Field is a stereotypical football field in a nice stadium. The stadium surrounding the field has shopping malls built in it, and there is a huge food court as well. It is a technological marvel to behold.

Schedule:
S1: Q1 Winner vs. Q2 Winner

Wirr Tsi
Wirr Tsi, a city that is more towards the Mountain District, is where the Chromatik National Air Forceis located, with over sixty percent of the population being military. Besides being a military town, it's also where a lot of the armaments are manufactured. It's not a very exciting town, but an important one.

Venue: The Shock (Cap. 51,350, 18,000 Seats)
The Shock, home to the Wirr Tsi Shock, was built to house the Air Force's football team. It's not a very flashy stadium, but it was built rather recently, so it's state-of-the-art.

Schedule
S2: Q3 Winner vs. Q4 Winner

Chromia
Chromia (previously Chromatik City) is the Capital of Chromatika and the seat of its government. The city is located ten miles east of the border with the Heartland and Rainbow Districts, and some of the suburbs of the city spill into the other two districts. It is in Chromia that the Rainbow Party now holds its power, and where Keri Wyse Aart serves as the Premier. It is also the site where most of the atrocities of the previous regime were committed, so it is a very historical and very conflicting site for most Chromatiks.

Venue: Capitalizt Dome (Cap. 144,000)
The crowning jewel of Chromatika, and the national stadium where international matches are usually held. It's your typical big-team stadium, home of the Chromatik Capitalizt. It is one of the few stadiums that are only used for football matches of both types. The national collegiate finals and high school finals are held here, too.

Schedule
3PPO: S1 Loser vs. S2 Loser

D'rea
A small town located a few miles from Chromia, D'rea is used mostly to house the overflow from Chromia. Though there are a few other neat things about the city, its function as the place where a lot of the Chromia working populace live makes it an important one.

Venue: Henza Center (Cap. 66,530)
This is the first stadium built in Chromatika for the purposes of Gridiron Football first. Soon to be the new home for the Chromatik Gridiron Squad and the Chromatik City Cyan, the Henza Center is an open-roofed, state of the art stadium built with a gridiron field in mind. The last World Bowl Final was held here, and everyone will be hoping to get back to where the Iron Legion calls home.

The Yeezie Organization for GridIron (YOGI) proudly presents St. Kanye's roster for World Bowl XLV. The Surge have been a top ten squad in the world, as well as a playoff contender, for several editions now. The closest they've come to sniffing a title was three editions ago, where they got hammered by the mighty Ranorians in the finale, but they hope that one day, they'll be the ones lifting the trophy.

NATION INFO

Full nation name: The Glorious Free Republic of Saint Kanye
Short nation name: St. Kanye
Trigramme: STK
Demonym: Yeezie
Nickname: Surge

STAFF

All players and staff are male, starters in bold, standout players with asterisk (*).

HC: Jeff Delphine
OC: Dan Shelby
DC: Kevin Macintyre
ST: Ken Kirby

Delphine, head coach and master motivator, runs the show, together with his trio of genius strategists in Shelby, Macintyre, and Kirby (offense, defense and special teams, respectively). The Surge is a pass-heavy, blitz-happy team, meaning that they want to get things done on the air and force their opponents to do so as well. However, they still work hard to make sure that they don't do badly on the things they focus less on.

OFFENSE

QB: #8 R.J. Linetti* / #5 Tim Hunt / #7 Harry Santos

Linetti remains as the Surge's starting QB and offensive captain. He's a dual threat, being both an accurate thrower as well as a speedy scrambler; Tim Hunt, Upper Westside University alumnus and Ranorian league standout, is his backup. Third on the rotation is Harry Santos, who has returned from injury

RB: #34 Noah Sherman* / #20 Gregory Silk

Aside from Linetti, St. Kanye's ground attack lies mostly in the hands (or rather, legs) of Sherman, a powerful back who doesn't think twice before bulldozing his opponents on the way to the endzone. Silk enters his third Bowl as the third down and speed back.

FB: #33 Nico Jackson / #32 Marco Jackson

The pass-catching Jackson brothers remain on fullback duty. Expect them to be rotated as starters every game, but Nico, the elder, will take the field first for Matchday 1.

WR: #12 Bruce Dobler* / #18 Patrick Moore* / #14 Deshawn Fredericks* / #13 Taylor Johns / #16 Hunter Lane / #15 Isaak Clearwater*

The receiving corps is where the Surge truly shine. Primary WR Dobler has the best hands on the team, while in the slot, we have the fast and flashy Moore. Fredericks, another UWU grad and Ranorian league player, is used in three WR sets, while Johns returns kicks in addition to his receiving duties. Lane is a capable backup who could very well be starting in other teams; Clearwater, while listed as a wide receiver, doesn't catch any passes. He instead makes his name known as a gunner, hunting down the returner during kickoffs or punts.

TE: #80 Hussein Jeffers / #88 Greg Malloy / #81 Brayden Galazkiewicz

The starting tight end is the agile Jeffers. Malloy, his backup, is perhaps more known as the punt returner.

LT: #63 Burton Baxter / #62 Anthony Walsh
LG: #61 Robert Shannon / #66 Derek Horton
C: #69 Gordon Ferguson / #68 Michael Hicks
RG: #65 Jahar Gray / #64 Clay Conrad
RT: #60 Mitch Grant / #67 Theo Parker

A couple starter/bench swaps for the offensive line, but they're essentially the same unit who have been a big help in creating scoring opportunities for Linetti and company.

DEFENSE

LE: #77 Simon Carver / #72 Liam Steele
RE: #78 Matt Dawson* / #94 Ryan Blake
NT: #99 Robby Edison / #75 Jon Patel / #76 Ken Miles /#74 Kevin Montrose

The three starting defensive linemen have been playing together since Arena Bowl VI, and they have gelled into a fearsome run-stopping unit. Left end Carver is fast and energetic for a big guy, nose tackle Edison is both an unstoppable force and an immovable object, and Dawson is a total sack master.

LOLB: #52 Jasper Heath / #51 Zach Price
MLB: #56 Justin Varley* / #54 Brexton Bellinger / #58 Alvin Faris
ROLB: #53 Hansel Jones / #55 Shawn Solomon

Gotten past the Surge's front three? Well, your troubles are not yet over - Heath, Jones and Bellinger are all fast, smart and hard-hitting. But the true standout of this group is Varley, the defensive captain - he can tackle, sack, force fumbles and incompletions, and intercept, among others.

CB: #22 Aidan O'Connor* / #21 Mason Schwartz / #28 Bernard Van Pelt / #27 Phil Wade

O'Connor starts at cornerback opposite Schwartz, with Van Pelt being used in the nickel package. The three of them are good at covering opposing receivers, but even more so at getting picks.

FS: #40 Gary Bradman* / #37 Vincent Black
SS: #45 Oliver Law / #39 Axel Bartlett

Free safety Bradman was the defensive specialist in the Arena Bowl team; he has a great knack for reading and disrupting the other team's offensive strategies. Opposite him in the strong safety position is Law, the best tackler among the secondary.

SPECIAL TEAMS

K: #1 James Rasputin*
P: #10 Chris Florence
LS: #50 Ruben Elroy

Rasputin is a deadly combination of distance and accuracy and is almost always guaranteed three (or one) points whenever he steps onto the field. Rasputin's performance in the previous tournaments has gotten many people mentioning his name in discussions about who the best active kicker in the World Bowl would be. The Yeezies rely on punting less than other teams do. but that doesn't mean Florence has lost his importance. He does the kickoffs, and he does it well. Elroy is an excellent long snapper who has been with the team for several cycles now.

The Ranorian Krauts are Ranoria's prestigious national team, funded by the Ranorian Football League and filled with players participating in professional domestic play both at home and abroad. The Krauts, former back-to-back world champions, have the funds and means to field a team loaded with playmakers on both sides of the ball.

Coming two titles in their last three tries, the goal this season is the same as ever: Win a championship. Following a collapse at home in World Bowl 45, this team is seeing significant overhaul and the driver of their success, John Garrett, is certainly getting older. He's still among the best in the world, and with plenty of other studs who can make a claim to that title as well, this team is still more than a threat to win the whole damn thing. And notably, they're ready if John "Farmboy" Garrett goes down. With former Northern Moravica star Vallienté Wagner-Young manning the backup quarterback position, the Krauts have a more than capable heir-apparent when their legend decides to step away.

Within the club, we've got a lot of new starters from a talented draft class two years ago now. This unit promises to bring one of the best lines in the world on both sides of the ball, much to the delight of their veteran quarterback. This defense might have trouble against the pass though - outside of Sean Morgan-Horne, the entire linebacking core struggles in coverage, and both corners are ballhawk-first guys who have a history of giving up big plays. If Judas Wolfson starts to show his age, it'll be completely up to the front four's ability to get to the quarterback. Offensively, there's whispers after missing 3 games last season that John Garrett's injury history has led to some regression - this team has lived or died on his arm since his arrival, if that's the case, this season could very quickly go down just like the disastrous World Bowl 44. That said, even if it's the case Farmboy has the weapons around and line in front of him to disguise any minor faults.







Stadium Info
The Karmin-Falce Superdome
Ranoria City, Ranoria


Image

Capacity: 121,450

The Karmin-Falce Superdome is, unofficially, Ranoria's national stadium. With a whopping 121,450 person capacity, relatively luxurious seating and climate control, it is the crown jewel of the nation's sporting venues. A retractable dome allows for ideal conditions, be that for the fans or the home team, if visitors aren't used to a harsh winter.

The surrounding city is thriving with Quebecois-influenced nightlife, restaurants claiming to serve "Banijan" food, as well as other attractions in Ranoria's largest city. Visitors should keep in mind that while marijuana and alcohol are legal, tobacco and other recreational drugs are not. Not to worry, most offenses regarding such substances will result in nothing more than a slap on the wrist. Especially for foreigners - Ranorian police have a "horrible" tendency of just not wanting to get involved with embassies.

Overall - it's worth planning a weekend getaway rather than just a trip to the big game, but either way you'll leave satisfied!

Offense

Quarterback: John "Farmboy" Garrett
Number: 10
Height: 6'4"
Weight: 232
Age: 35

Image
John Garrett, Indianapolis Hogs Quarterback

Now with two World Bowl titles and securing the second and highest marks for passing yards and touchdowns in RFL history, John Garrett is arguably the best quarterback in the world. Garrett is capable of making every throw in the book from seemingly every angle available. He's lost just a hair of his throw power to age and injuries, but his calling card is his knowledge of the defense and accuracy to take advantage of it. Garrett is an absolute film nut and has been known to know the opposing defense better than his coaching staff. Expect the four time MVP to be aggressive and rarely turn the ball over while being more than able to take advantage of a defense that shows him the same look twice. Complete mastery of the playbook, more than willing to check into any play that personnel allows or change any route he deems necessary.

If Garrett has any weakness, it's his injury history. Between back problems in college, four shoulder injuries between the two joints as a pro, and other dings, he has a hard time staying upright, and it can result in significantly higher turnover numbers from him, as seen in World Bowl 41 and domestically from 2024 to 2026. One could also point out that he has absolute faith in his tight end, Johnny Farmer, which could perhaps be taken advantage of. Though between the talent of and the chemistry these two share...we doubt it.

Backing up Garrett is none other than former #1 recruit Vallienté Wagner-Young. Wagner-Young led Northern Moravica to a pair of NSCF championship appearances in his college tenure and has all the talent in the world at his disposal. Farmboy has the job locked down for as long as he wants it - but is Wagner-Young his heir-apparent? Largely due to Garrett's injury history, retirement rumors have been swirling for years now despite his relatively young age. With two kids and another on the way, his legacy is already secured - would a third World Bowl in five tries be the perfect ride into the sunset?


Halfback: Apollo Esther
Number: 33
Height: 6'3"
Weight: 235
Age: 24
A star for Northern Moravica and consequently a collegiate teammate of Vallienté Wagner-Young, Esther takes the role of RB1 from long time bellcow Vice Jackson III. With a similar frame to Jackson III, this offense won't lose any of its physicality. If anything, Esther's downhill, almost brutal running style brings more of it where Vice tends to wade through traffic when possible. Esther's more of a pure runner though, and will be subbed out for Duke Beckett in passing situations. If Jackson III is on the field, he's still a threat to catch some passes. Gauge Lawson, who majored in engineering with a minor in ass-kicking at Elephant Valley University, will get playing time as a productive runner for the Berlin Snow Bears, but this is a deep room. You’ll likely see him returning some kicks and punts - he’s big, but he proved to be more than capable in that role for the Red Elephants, and nobody wants to bring down someone that big with a full head of steam.


Tight End: Vasily Schmidt
Number: 87
Height: 6'7"
Weight: 270
Age: 28
Image
5x All-Star TE Vasily Schmidt is finally getting his shot as Johnny Farmer ages out of a starting role

Big surprise here - NSCF 17's Most Outstanding Player can do it all from the tight end position, but he's finally given way to a guy that was heralded to take his place much earlier.

Besides South Newlandian Dhruv Valentine, there's not a tight end in the RFL that can claim to be better at their job than Vasily Schmidt. The 6'7" menace is faster than Farmer ever was, if not quite as athletic overall, and a beast of a blocker. Schmidt has played a key role in the last few World Bowls and was notably the only active college player to ever play for the Krauts in his debut, although now he's been joined by a second tight end in Russell Farmer.

Johnny will still be the second stringer and will likely come in for key plays a la a 3rd down pass rusher due to his savvy and chemistry with John Garrett, but Vasily will be their go-to guy at the position this season.


Wide Receiver 1: Khalil Hauptmann
Number: 10
Height: 6'6"
Weight: 220 lb
Age: 28
The prodigal son returns! Hauptmann played at Loyola-Istria in college and elected to stay in Banija to pursue a professional career there. Fortunately, he's taken to lending his services to the World Bowl team, and based on the production, he's the best wideout the team's ever fielded. The 6'5" freakshow provides more than enough matchup issues on his own, and if teams leave him one-on-one to eliminate the aforementioned tight end. . . good luck there. With Farmer being phased out, he's projected to be the top receiving threat for this offense, and if we're being honest - there's not much of a drop-off there.


Wide Receiver 2: Jeremiah Fletcher
Number: 11
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 215
Age: 25
The #5 WR prospect in Ranoria coming out of high school, he led a successful career after signing with Ranoria State University, serving as a three year starter there as a prolific member of one of the nation's premier air raid squads, earning first-team All-Ranoria honors as a junior. Luckily for him, he's currently employed by John Garrett's Indianapolis Hogs after being taken with the 2nd to last pick of the first round, and has been electric so far in his career. Fletcher is a true WR1 and has plenty of chemistry with Farmboy, but expect him to take a more complementary role with Hauptmann opposite him.


Wide Receiver 3: Isaak Rodriguez
Number: 19
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 200
Age: 24
After a prolific career at Akers State of Northwest Kalactin, Rodriguez supplanted Calvin Hale as the third man up in this offense. He's significantly more talented, with speed to burn and good size - he was a star track runner in high school, and that's translated well to a sub-4.4 second 40 yard dash time. While all of the starting receivers on this offense can take the top off of an offense, he's the one that fills that role here. Rodriguez is a diva who demands the ball, but with John Garrett at the helm and Raul Nieler manning up the head coach spot, he respects the organization enough to dial it back. Can break tackles, especially from smaller DBs, due to leg drive he's gained from all that track running. Recently made it to the RFL championship alongside none other than Calvin Hale and Drawkian QB Lane "The Cavsaran Casanova" Proudfoot.


Left Tackle: Vince Vermillion
Number: 70
Height: 6'6"
Weight: 330
Age: 30
Some may recognize him from his days at Cold Hill, Rhine's blindside protector for four seasons has transitioned nicely into the pros. Much more effective at taking on big power rushers than a speedster, although he's still adept enough to give the latter all they want. Vermillion is a 4x All-Star in the Ranorian Football League. He filled the spot at right tackle for most of his World Bowl tenure, but with Tyler Williams's retirement will be taking his more natural spot on the blindside.

Behind Vermillion is the extremely talented Travis Handon - whether he can hold off the young buck for more than a season remains to be seen.


Left Guard: "JT" Jack Trenton Everhart
Number: 78
Height: 6'8"
Weight: 340
Age: 26
Everhart is an absolute mauler at guard who's employed by the QFL. After spending his collegiate years playing for St. Croix, he grew fond of Quebec and Shingoryeo. He allowed one sack in his high school career and played plenty of elite teams for the Bleu et Blanc in the spotlight of the sport. He also played high school ball in Ranoria City, so he's going to be right at home in the Superdome.


Center: Jakob Engelhaft
Number: 72
Height: 6'4"
Weight: 320
Age: 23
Engelhaft takes the spot of veteran Philippe Maxine. The Northern Moravica grad and Ranoria City native has a wrestling background and is excellent at using leverage to take on some of the bigger linemen who like to bully their matchups - successful center and with 2 NSCF championship appearances, he's one of 2 NMU offensive lineman starting for this team.


Right Guard: Hector Storolfsson
Number: 66
Height: 6'7"
Weight: 335
Age: 23
Replacing Jacob Silva - who's a stud but only got one year starting for this line - is Storolfsson. Hector, like defensive linemen Taurus and Vollmacht, is a competitive strongman and it shows - he's probably the most physically powerful member of this line, and overwhelms even the toughest interior linemen with sheer force and brute. Sports a nasty streak that most of this line can get behind. While this entire offense boasts talent, this is arguably the best position group overall on the team.


Right Tackle: Eric Modin
Number: 71
Height: 6'8"
Weight: 320
Age: 25
A former #3 overall recruit, Eric Modin was a stonewall at right tackle for the Northern Moravica cougars, and part of two teams that made NSCF championship appearances. With he and Vermillion on the outside, this offensive line is looking formidable on all fronts - believe us, any lineman coached by someone like Lance Kabuye is going to have a combination of technical perfection and a nasty edge that any analyst salivates over. 2x All-Star and stalwart blocker for the Ranoria City Silver's Ballast Queen.


Defense

Left Defensive End: Abram Fairbanks
Number: 54
Height: 6'5"
Weight: 245
Age: 24
Image
Abram Fairbanks during a game for his alma mater, the University of Loyola-Istria

Nothing short of a superstar - this guy is an demon off the edge with speed reminiscent of namesake of the field he called home in college. Fairbanks started for the Krauts as a true rookie and proceeded to set the rookie sack record (17) while winning the defensive player and rookie of the year awards, forcing his Apollotown Sabers team from the first overall pick to a playoff spot by sheer force of will. Don't let his size fool you, he's a beast against the run (32 TFL in his first 2 RFL seasons) - run away from him and he'll chase your back down, and he's simply too fast to leave unblocked on RPO's.

Fairbanks can legitimately make a claim, even in his youth, to the best defensive end in the world. Good luck stopping him.


Right Defensive End: Gideon Kearse
Number: 99
Height: 6'5"
Weight: 280
Age: 23
Image
Gideon Kearse during his tenure as a Richardson University Governor

And the other former true-rookie starter. The NSCF 26 Defensive Player of the Year was arguably the best defensive end prospect Ranoria's ever seen, a mauler of a power-rusher with no true weaknesses after being fine-tuned by Richardson University's coaching staff - with his hall-of-fame father as the position coach and the guiding hand of Chromatik head coach Kasen Harrowitz.

Kearse has been far from a bust with 20.5 sacks and 39 TFL between his first two seasons, but perhaps hasn't lived up to hype that was similar to that of Abram Fairbanks, who, fair or not, he'll always be compared to. But that isn't all his fault, the Port Kruger Phalanx are a joke of a team that made it clear they wanted Aurel Strathos over Sarai Gwenderyn in the draft with their #2 overall pick. Gwenderyn is a champion and former MVP - Strathos is one of the biggest busts in RFL history. Kearse has formally requested a trade from the team now. With his agent handling those matters so that he can focus on the World Bowl, could we see something materialize come draft day?


Nose Tackle: Konstantin Vollmacht
Number: 98
Height: 6'6"
Weight: 325
Age: 24
NSCF 26 Champion - Konstantin Vollmacht is the monster under your bed. Clocking in at 325 pounds, he's got even more muscle mass on that frame than you'd think, and is one of the most physically powerful players in the sport. (Or maybe sports overall) If you leave one man on him, it's probably not going to end well. Being coached at Felswyr State, he's been developed as well as he could have been with a decent pass rush arsenal and always looking to bat down passes. Part of a ferocious front four for this Kraut defense.

Vollmacht's a mature player who excels on and off the field who's quickly taken a leadership role for this defense in training camp. He's vicious between the whistles, but expect him to be one of the least penalized players on this team.


Defensive Tackle: Gudbrand Taurus
Number: 90
Height: 6'5"
Weight: 300
Age: 28
Gudbrand Taurus is freakishly strong, more so than his size would leave one to believe. A 3x All Star as a pro and 1x All-Ranorian in college, he's a big man who can generate pressure and cause losses in the run game. Professional level strongman who's got more power even than his large size indicates - between he and Vollmacht, this team will get pressure up the middle.


Right Outside Linebacker: Sean Morgan-Horne
Number: 45
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 225
Age: 29
After gracing Banijan fans with an illustrious college career, Sean Morgan-Horne is coming back home. He's become the centerpiece on defense for the Dietrich Dynamos, helping the team to back-to-back championship victories in 2027 and 2028. His time with Northern Moravica's Cougars more than shored up any issues he had with tackling or discipline, and he's developed into one hell of a linebacker. Best coverage backer of this trio.


Inside Linebacker: Kaiser Belfort
Number: 55
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 240
Age: 24

From one Richardson University legend to another - Kaiser Belfort will be stepping in for the retired Ross Monarch as centerpiece for this Krauts defense. Belfort was an NSCF 24 DPOY candidate, and is your prototypical run-stopping, hard hitting middle linebacker. He's got plus speed, good enough to get to the edge on stretch runs and break up some passes, but he's usually going to go attempt to knock the ball out with a big hit rather than knock it down or go for an interception.

The newly-married man is the reigning Renown Combat International heavyweight champion, and that demeanor carries over - he doesn't care if you run the ball fifty times a game, he's going to shrug off every blow and meet you in the hole with the enthusiasm of a rabid dog every time. Can miss some tackles as he's more of a big hitter than a secure tackler.


Left Outside Linebacker: Django Reeves
Number:
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 225
Age: 27
The third member of a standout linebacker core, Reeves is a hybrid linebacker who can come down to rush the passer or play off ball. Like many players on this defense, he's a hit-first player who's not afraid to risk more penalties to make offenses think twice about coming his way. Average coverage player, but has a lot of twitch and straight-line speed to make up for catches he surrenders. He's an elite athlete who should be a significant upgrade over Ellis - hopefully that makes up for Monarch's losing a step. In 4 pro seasons, he's racked up 268 tackles and 25 sacks.


Cornerback 1: Jabyess Hawkins
Number: 20
Height: 6'
Weight: 195
Age: 29
Stepping in as the top corner now with Darnell Sleight hitting the wall, Hawkins is younger and much faster. Where Sleight's game was denying targets and breaking up whatever came his way, but Jabyess is a ballhawk through-and-through. Hawkins is a high 4.3s kind of guy who can keep up with anyone with elite ball-tracking skills, as displayed by 23 career picks as a pro and 13 interceptions in 3 seasons of NSCF play. That speed also helps for when he does over-commit to making a play on the ball - he can often make the tackle afterwards, but he can and will give up big plays. He lacks elite size and can be taken advantage of by bigger receivers, but the idea here is to take advantage of a disruptive front four with a guy that will jump on ill-advised passes thrown under pressure.


Cornerback 2: Sterling Dillon
Number: 29
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 200
Age: 24
A youngster who's played alright in his first couple seasons, Dillon may not quite be up to the task here. He was a late first round pick in the 2024 RFL draft and hasn't quite lived up to the billing for the Nashville Sabercats. Excellent with inside leverage, he'll make it hard to throw quick ins, slants, and curls, but lacks top-end deep speed or instincts and can get beaten outside or with double moves. Very much a developmental starter, but could have a higher ceiling in the future.


Free Safety: Alexander Ackermann
Number: 22
Height: 6-1
Weight: 195
Age: 29
A former #2 recruit for Ranoria and stud for Loyola-Istria, Ackermann plays domestically against elite competition in Banija's GFLB. He's a ball-hawking, rangy free safety who's more than capable of making a passer pay for an errant deep ball. Moved from corner to safety after his freshman year in college, and as such has excellent man-to-man coverage ability for his position.

Primary backup is Agnor Viridian.


Strong Safety: Judas Wolfson

Number: 40
Height: 6'1"
Weight: 215
Age: 32
Bringing in Judas Wolfson was a huge move for this defense two seasons ago. 1x RFL and 1x NSCF defensive player of the year, Wolfson is a playmaker in every way possible. Play him in the box all season and he'll give you a hundred tackles. On the back end? He's recorded four seasons of 4+ interceptions, and he's an absolutely adept blitzer. But that's not his game. You give Wolfson room to lay the hammer down, and he'll level anyone in front of him, no matter how big they are. Judas is an absolute enforcer and one of the best players in the RFL today, with 30 forced fumbles, 20 sacks, and 32 interceptions in his career. He's lost just a half-step in his age, but he's still arguably the best player at his position.

Primary backup is the younger Sage Sterling- either safety can and will be employed to cover tight ends from time to time. Sterling will serve as the primary nickel defender, but generally Wolfson will get slotted into the box in this scenario. Sterling's nearly a carbon-copy of the future hall-of-famer, but needs a bit more time to develop into that tier of player.

Formations/Personnel Packages
Please Note - These are by no means comprehensive, but should give a general idea of personnel packages and formations.


12 Personnel "Heavy" Offense | Base Defense
- Apollo Esther is this team's lead back. Duke Beckett will take the 3rd down role while Vice Jackson III is a threat to run or catch passes out of the backfield.
- Expect frequent substitutions at the defensive end spots. Angelo Gordon is a veteran and future hall of famer while Albatross "Albie" Vergol is only a half-step behind Kearse and Fairbanks in terms of talent.

Image



11 Personnel "Base" Offense | Nickel Defense
- The nickel defense varies based on the offensive formation. When a nickel defender in the box is necessary, expect Judas Wolfson to fill that role and Sage Sterling to take the "SS" spot. Wolfson is just as effective in the box as he is back deep.
- Scenarios seeing Wolfson in the box include but are not limited to an elite tight end, needing a quarterback spy, or several injuries to LBs necessitating his playing in the box.
- Apollo Esther is this team's lead back. Duke Beckett will take the 3rd down role while Vice Jackson III is a threat to run or catch passes out of the backfield.
- Expect frequent substitutions at the defensive end spots. Angelo Gordon is a veteran and future hall of famer while Albatross "Albie" Vergol is only a half-step behind Kearse and Fairbanks in terms of talent.

Image



"5-Wide" Offense | Dime/Prevent Defense
- Sage "Bricks" Sterling is generally employed as the dime defender here
- In hail-mary situations, expect Angelo Gordon or Albus Vergol to sub in for Vollmacht to maximize the team's pass rush. - - If Gordon comes in, Gideon Kearse will bump inside to DT. Vergol will take the DT spot if he subs in.
- The offense rarely runs this formation to avoid showing it on film often, a sort of "ace in the hole." Its intention is to spread the defense out and make it difficult for them to disguise their coverages pre-snap, thus allowing Garrett to call the best play available at the line of scrimmage and speed up processing post-snap. Combined with Garrett's vaunted accuracy, it's an almost sure-fire way for this offense to get some momentum going. Expect a ton of audibles and hot routes to get called.
- Farmer being the TE in this scenario is not a typo - in this sort of scenario a lot of plays will be called at the line of scrimmage and if all else fails, Farmer's chemistry with Garrett from playing together since their middle school days will be the last line of defense.

World Bowl 45 - Ko-orenite National Team
Image
QB,BQ - Quarterback, backup quarterback.
FB,HB,RB - Fullback, halfback, running back. Fullbacks line up between quarterbacks and halfbacks/running backs. HBs and RBs will get more carries, though in Ko-oren the FB is a legitimate offensive threat like the tight end who must be able to run, catch, and block.
WR,XR,YR,ZR,TR,TB - Wide receiver, X-, Y-, Z-receiver, receiving tight end, blocking tight end. X- and Z-receivers typically line up near the sidelines, with Y-receivers acting as slot receivers, who are often smaller, quicker, and better at YAC. The generic 'WR' position is often an all-rounder who plays fewer snaps.
RT,RG,CE,LG,LT,OL - Right tackle, right guard, center, left guard, left tackle, offensive line (backup).
LE,LD,NT,RD,RE - left defensive end, left defensive line, nose tackle, right defensive line, right defensive end. In a 3-4 front, the NT will play (with the LE and RE). In a 4-3, the LD and RD will play (with the LE and RE). Depending on the role of the outside guys, the LE and RE can clog lanes and stop runs (as force/cutback roles), rush the passer as true edge rushers, or a mix of both. The LD and RD may go for pressures and tackles for loss, but are almost always involved in pressuring the QB and limiting runs.
OB,WB,IB,MB,SB,BZ - outside linebacker, weak-side linebacker, inside linebacker, middle linebacker, strong-side linebacker, blitzer. In a 3-4 front, four of the six named roles play, with two outside guys (can be WB, SB, OB, or BZ) and two inside guys (can be IB, MB, somtimes BZ, or even one of the others depending on the situation). In a 4-3 front, typically the WB, MB, and SB will play, with occasional roles for the BZ, IB, and OB. The BZ can also appear on the defensive line in a 4-3 front as an (edge) rusher.
LC,FS,SS,RC,NB,DB - left cornerback, free safety, strong safety, right cornerback, nickelback, dimeback. Left and right are often interchangeable. In Ko-oren, many linebackers are able to play a coverage role as well. The free safety typically gets more interceptions, while the strong safety may drop towards the line of scrimmage to threaten a blitz or pick up a receiver early on.
PK,PU,LS,PR,KR,JM,GU - placekicker, punter, long snapper, punt returner, kick returner, jammer, gunner. Punt and kick returner roles are fairly interchangeable and may also appear as extra/backup FB/HB/RB/YR/WR.


Coaching Staff

Stij Batterink (head coach)
Offence: Val Hardman (offensive coordinator), Simon Palmsterk (QB), Yv Garnier (RB), Teonnach yLawdmell (WR), Olivier Olander (OLine)
Defence: Luc Jauffret (defensive coordinator), Stewart Cropp (DLine), Tednawf yGastaff (LB), Listenau Jenurdherinden (DBacks)
Special Teams: Duncan Huckstep (ST coordinator)

The all-retired team this year could legitimately compete for a Bowl. A domestic one, not the World one, mind you. Culture-defining, generational talents like Binnenpoorte, Ehrenkorn, Van Luttert, Umabajashi, Ecaliris, Whitlock, Norali, and about a dozen others all announced they'd quit. On the other side, QB Parkes remains the oldest player in the league as he renews another year at Eaglebury, LB Fokke plays another year in Sterrenwolde - whose storied defence is otherwise ripped apart by retirements - and Arerira will be in Aerellen for another year as well, contrary to earlier claims. That means that this year's team in the World Bowl is a lot younger and a lot less experienced. Maybe Batterink failed to bring in new talent when there were legends to guide them. The one club that made it through the offseason unscathed is Greencaster, but they're due for their offseason from hell next year.

Overall, the team is good at planning for opponents, while keeping fouls to a minimum. The defence is great, but the offence is not far behind. One of the reasons we don't tend to give up a lot of points is that our offence goes for long drives that eat up clock.

Offence

QB Pier Masman (24) - Sterrenwolde Dragonflies, a adventurous lanky game planner
QB Kageera Ingdon (25) - Mawryshire Centaurs, a resentful short pocket passer
QB Philip Bodkin (26) - Willowbourne Saints, a good slim game planner

The future is here! Parkes, Arerira, Plasman - the old guard is out for this one. It's truly a new era with Masman expected to start every game barring extrenuous circumstances, as the Dragonflies QB has the right balance of planning vs improvisation and he has the physical skills needed to do what he needs. Ingdon might be able to throw more accurately and a little further, but gets rattled a bit quicker. Bodkin is a model professional.

RB Spencer Galway (33) - Schemerdrecht 65ers, a brave stocky speed back
RB Alastair Thorebourne (29) - Greencaster Godspeed, a dim skinny trickster
RB Garathen Jurethen (31) - Mayara Destroyers, a silly stringy showman
FB Jonas Wilson (28) - Greencaster Godspeed, a wise nimble daredevil
FB Doninak Soserindhen (28) - Mayara Destroyers, a evasive agile speed back

The old guard is still here, not giving up their spot. Galway was a question mark for his age and his reliance on speed, but he's back for another tournament. Thorebourne is a little more patient and Jurethen is probably the best decision maker. The fullbacks happen to be from the same teams as two of the running backs, so we're excited for the rapport they have.

WR Egge Gasbeek (26) - Schemerdrecht Admirals, a predictable toned workhorse
WR Bryan Welsh (27) - Willowbourne Saints, a shy well built workhorse
WR Roe Fineman (29) - Greencaster Godspeed, a empathetic bony showman
YR Giles Costigan (24) - Aminey Caspians, a flaky portly workhorse
YR Tim Porden (30) - Schemerdrecht 65ers, a gentle compact speed demon
TE Kas Voorhorst (30) - Aerellen Explosions, a childish stocky yac artist
TE Kechish Narlash (23) - Schemerdrecht Admirals, a modern quick dynamo
TE Max Maret (29) - Mayara Wolves, a intelligent petite yac artist

As for the receivers: Gasbeek and Costigan are the faces of a new generation at their position, with the NT always a little behind on ball catchers. Narlash is a great blocker, the other two TEs like to be involved in route running. Porden is a sneaky guy with some of the longer routes. Welsh is selected for longevity and stamina, while Fineman, not always the best at separation, gets the best catches.

RT Elisha Witvos (32) - Schemerdrecht 65ers, a clever bulky run blocker
RT Olinosuke Vuluja (30) - Mayara Destroyers, a confrontational slender teammate
RT Noro Sardou (26) - Schemerdrecht Admirals, a pessimistic plump pass blocker
RG Otho Tilcott (27) - Eaglebury Emperors, a anxious short strongman
RG Robin Verninac (29) - Aminey Caspians, a pessimistic toned all-rounder
CE Adé Gavreau (32) - Willowbourne Saints, a humorless muscular all-rounder
CE Mert Molemans (30) - Sterrenwolde Dragonflies, a conscientious agile strongman
CE Kiserba Likathinden (35) - Mayara Destroyers, a nasty strong workhorse
LG Aerili Allacea (24) - Aerellen Explosions, a reserved muscular all-rounder
LG Kōki Matsunami (23) - Schemerdrecht 65ers, a rude skinny gladiator
LT Aenieme Arenna (28) - Greencaster Godspeed, a foolish pacy teammate
LT Sibren Schooten (34) - Schemerdrecht Admirals, a boring bony gladiator
LT Jo Altink (29) - Willowbourne Saints, a exuberant burly strongman

It's a who's who of the best, bulkiest guys in Ko-oren (that don't play forward in rugby union or league). There's a package for every game plan, with the Ko-orenite offence always tailored to the opponent's strengths rather than our own, so you will get some different looks. The centres are selected for experience as well as skill.

Defence

LE Hugo Sparre (29) - Willowbourne Saints, a competitive beefy stunter
LE Gabe Payne (27) - Mayara Wolves, a sensitive quick pass rusher
LD Maukiliru Gomoltinden (32) - Sterrenwolde Dragonflies, a good lanky workhorse
LD Mablw yTaddwadd (24) - Eaglebury Emperors, a clever stringy lane clogger
LD Melton Hoddle (27) - Mayara Wolves, a aggressive pacy showman
RD Veja Stroo (33) - Mayara Destroyers, a noncommittal heavy pass rusher
RD Boaz Avink (32) - Sterrenwolde Dragonflies, a sincere hard-hitting workhorse
RD Marc Gérald (31) - Aminey Caspians, a independent bulky lane clogger
RE Tausurlun Hanalaunden (27) - Noordrug Astronauts, a boring fit workhorse
RE Jon Mulders (34) - Aerellen Explosions, a lucky hard-hitting pass rusher

The tepid edge pass rush - Hanalaunden and Mulders are better at that than Sparre and Payne, though - will just need to occupy lanes and quarterbacks. The inside of the line, with six players selected at those positions, are much better, with all six capable of eating blocks, pressuring quarterbacks, tackling for loss, etcetera.

WB Edward Darknoll (29) - Eaglebury Emperors, a moralistic buff blanket
WB Louw Hagendoorn (24) - Schemerdrecht 65ers, a independent plump spy
WB Baluin Dauntaringun (32) - Mayara Wolves, a humorous trim tactician
MB Reuben Ramsbottom (30) - Schemerdrecht Admirals, a solemn tiny blanket
MB Toon Fokke (36) - Sterrenwolde Dragonflies, a mature toned blanket
SB Gabe Henry (35) - Greencaster Godspeed, a sympathetic short tactician
SB Wim Altefeer (29) - Sterrenwolde Dragonflies, a funny gigantic tactician
SB Naajabang Witzie (28) - Mayara Wolves, a extravagant quick opportunist

We're slowly getting to the good stuff. All of the weak side linebackers are pretty well used in coverage, while the middle backers like contact a little more - but Ramsbottom and Fokke are also a little more hands-off (in the sense that they, too, drop into zones or coverage). The strong side guys are there to back up the outside linemen, who, as established, can use the help. We're not running with the varied roles of LBs in our NT's past - they're still asked to do a lot, but not that much. Plus Henry is getting on in age, as is Fokke, so the old unit is out. Hagendoorn-Ramsbottom-Witzie is a combination that we can use for a while in the future, hopefully.

LC Herman Jennings (26) - Sterrenwolde Dragonflies, a neutral athletic communicator
LC Camille Duterre (30) - Aminey Caspians, a moralistic athletic tactician
LC Elwood Guillan (30) - Mayara Wolves, a sensible bony tactician
RC Jalu Vigouroux (30) - Mawryshire Centaurs, a deceitful lanky communicator
RC Aeneatai Aothemirila (25) - Aminey Caspians, a calm fit blanket

Now this is what we were all waiting for. Five blankets, each capable of taking out a receiver almost entirely. You really have to present a good game plan or these guys will tear it apart. Duterre is no longer our strongest option on that side, that's Jennings. And Vigouroux is by far the best option on the other side, with Aothemirila a bit inexperienced for now. In nickleback plays, three of the five will usually be on the field.

SS Dhauthenu Turaundhinthen (31) - Schemerdrecht Admirals, a devious stringy tackler
SS Chilra Minjarrah (35) - Eaglebury Emperors, a sincere pacy communicator
SS Sadhaulak Dakitherinthen (33) - Noordrug Astronauts, a charming athletic ballhawk
FS Aoradora Aurisea (24) - Sterrenwolde Dragonflies, a amiable nimble opportunist
FS Magne Binnenmars (29) - Schemerdrecht 65ers, a discreet hard-hitting tackler

The strong safeties tend to help out the linebackers on running plays, and with them lining up closer to the front seven, they can hide their intentions a lot more. Will they blitz? Drop into coverage? Create a front eight? Your QB better figure it out within a few seconds. The free safeties help out the corners and provide help overtop, and they're traditionally the ones who get interceptions.

Special Teams

PK Abner Bennett (35) - Greencaster Godspeed, a mature buff specialist
PK Niels Oordveld (30) - Schemerdrecht 65ers, a paranoid trim all-rounder

Bennett is the Mr. Automatic of Ko-oren, while Oordveld can sneak in a trick play here and there.

PU Dhaungekun Tadhinthen (31) - Mawryshire Centaurs, a careful swift all-rounder
PU Ginaurstu Baurerningun (27) - Mayara Wolves, a uncompromising lanky specialist

Tadhinthen is the least error-prone and can throw. Baurerningun is better in hang time and accuracy, though.

RET Go Bronsvoord (27) - Greencaster Godspeed, a honest toned all-rounder
RET Clé Moreau (27) - Sterrenwolde Dragonflies, a lazy fit all-rounder

While both will fight for every inch, Bronsvoord tends to be a little more elusive on the sidelines.

LS Elothe Aecherin (32) - Mayara Destroyers, a shy slender specialist

NSFB-WB: The Final Stand Starts Here

Postby TJUN-ia » Tue Sep 06, 2022 8:42 am

Name: TJUN-ia
Trigram: TJU
Organisation: Gridiron Football Association of TJUN-ia (GFA-TJUN-ia)
Nickname: Jaguars or Jags
World Bowl Rank: 4th

The Final Stand. That is what this World Bowl is going to be for TJUN-ian gridiron. The #4 ranked side in the world of Gridiron football felt as though they had fallen too soon 2 years ago and while 4 of our finest are now gone and new players have come to take their place, most have stayed on for one more time to try and push towards the deep playoff run many will be hoping for after all this time. Gus McKerrin knows how important this time will be for everyone and so, changes have been made to fill in the gaps: Hubert Valois is now off returning duty, Karl von Liechten in at DE, Joseph Bulwell and Graham Tees strengthening the D, Jessica Farron looking to support ageing Drew McAllister, Roger Hawthorn and Kayla Richmond named the new starting returners (a team first).

These pieces are the first signs of the impending future, one where Trent State and Green City are going to have command over the fate of this team through the development of some of the great talents this International Community can produce. For now, the new starters will be involved in a group filled with nostalgia for contests past - Saint Kanye, Squidroidia, HUElavia and especially Kriegiersien, the Agents of Chaos who took us down two years ago. No matter what happens, TJUN-ia's Gridiron transition is about to begin...and we shall fight all the same no matter the impending ticking clock that hangs above us...

STADIUM
Name: Field of Dreams in The Gardens
Location: New Washington, NAU Zone
Capacity: 87,000
Image

Part of "The Gardens", New Washington's sporting complex, the Field of Dreams marked the debut of the NAU Zone in hosting U3 international competition. The main purpose of the Field of Dreams was to create an atmosphere where chaos lived and upsets can be made, a fact that was backed up in Game 1 with the "Block 6" over Cassadiagua and the "Kick 6" in the rematch a year later. Those plays were further ingrained into the minds of TJUN-ians due to the fact that seats had direct access to the field, allowing the fans to storm it and celebrate with their heroes.

Return of The Jovannic - Roster for the World Bowl 45

The last foray into a World Bowl edition by The Jovannic was 6 editions ago, during edition XXXIX. It wasn't the most flattering of appearances, ending with a record of 3-7. Our three victories came with two victories against Nagore, 40-13 and 17-26 respectively, with our most impressive result being the 7-0 shutout win against Ko-oren.

A lot has changed since our debut, the most significant of those being the rise of Deleclava from being Unranked in World Bowl 39 to being the World No.1 coming into this edition.

General Information
Governing Body: Olympic Committee of Banija
Full Nation Name: Kingdom of Banija
Denonym: Banijan(s)
Team Nickname: Serpent Eagles
Notable World Bowl Finishes: Champions of World Bowl XLIV. Second Place in World Bowl XL. Third Place in World Bowl XXXVII. 4th place in World Bowl XXIX, World Bowl XXX, and World Bowl XXXI.
Other Trophies: Champions of AO Bowl IV
Rivals: Ranoria, Delaclava, Sarzonia, Drawkland(in that order)
Rank: #2

Play-Style Information
Weakness: Run Defense
Strength: Pass Offense

Team Culture: The Banijans are also well known to be physical, and yet clean, players. While they usually are fairly clean(definitely commit penalties but nothing outwardly dirty, like intentionally injuring players or something), Banijan gridiron culture is extremely proud, and therefore, Banijans are elite smack talkers. They'll talk smack, they'll taunt both opponents and opposing fans, and they'll run up the score, if they are capable. They have a play without fear mentality, and a play to the end mentality- lots of these dudes, stars in their own right, biggest challenge is integrating into a team where they are not at the center. Another challenge, of course, is that both collegiate and professional gridiron rivalries run deep- which can make coming together at the national team level much more difficult in this sport, than it is for Banijan athletes in other sports.

Those challenges can make success difficult at the national team level, as many believe Thomas Hall has 'the toughest job in all of gridiron', to ensure that everybody buys into the common goal, and forgets about themselves as individuals to ensure that they can indeed make this sum greater than the whole of its parts. Now that they've won a title, however, expect things to be extreme- play with even more confidence, talk more smack, etc..

Fan Culture Culture: Banijan fan culture around gridiron embodies some of that of the players. People love to talk smack, and therefore, fans are like that as well. Banijan fans are known as arrogant and proud, and they will show up in droves, in any city, wherever it is, to talk over local bars and support their team, even without tickets. Casinos tend to love Banijan gridiron fans, as they willing to put their money where their mouth is, and bet large sums of money on Banijan gridiron. Of course, they cashed all those out at World Bowl XLIV, so we'll see if casinos are as willing to bring Banijans in this time around.

Official Depth Chart for World Bowl XLV


The rosters is drawn both from the Gridiron Football League of Banija(GFLB), our NSCF teams, foreign NSCF teams, foreign pro leagues, and other Banijan college teams.

Starters are underlined. Players who are receiving their first national team call-up are italicized. Listed in the order of the depth chart.

Offense

Quarterbacks
Ifeatu Chineze. #12. 35 years old. NSCF 18-21 starter for Richardson University(Ranoria) in the NSCF. Starter for the Aissa Crocodiles in the GFLB.
Amazu Chibuzo. #9. 34 years old. Starter for the Busukuma Suns in the GFLB. NSCF 20-22 starter for Loyola-Istria.
Ebou Hairte. #4. 27 years old. Starter for the Lwanga Rhinos in the GFLB. Loyola-Istria alumnus.

When Isaka Jawara retired, it hsd launched one of the most entertaining QB competitions in living memory- Chineze v. Chibuzo. They both were on the roster at World Bowl XLI, but neither of them took a single snap- therefore continuing the anticipation. Chineze was the winner of the most intense position battle in recent memory for Banijan sports fans, and he staked his claim to the QB1 spot. He has held firmly onto his role as the QB1 for the national team since then, with him leading Banija as the most explosive passing offense in recent memory to our first ever World Bowl title.

Ebou Hairte, of course, was a two year NSCF starter for Loyola-Istria, and slots in comfortably behind the much more experienced QBs behind them as the team's third string QB. He is trying to impress the coaching staff now, as he knows that Felswyr State QB, Kadesh Odika, although just 18 years old, is waiting in the wings to take his job.

Halfbacks
Elasah Okumu. #20. 27 years old. Plays for the Istria Black Mambas.
Kuenda Sello. #21. 32 years old. Graudate of Richardson University(Ranoria) in the NSCF. Team's feature back. Plays for the Rukunbi Wizards.
Philip Apondo. #23. 29 years old. Plays for the Herzegovina City Cobras.
Madikeh Konta. #24. 23 years old. Plays for the St. Jakob Honey Badgers.

Running backs are always the first position that are able to play at the professional level. With Sello, long the team's feature back, hitting age 32 and trying to extend his professional career, he is taking a step back from his position as lead back in the backfield. It is much more of a backfield by committee situation now- with Okumu as the nominal starter, but Okumu, Sello, and Apondo all expected to split snaps essentially evenly.

Wide Receivers.
Kalu Alazar. #11, 25 years old. 6'4, 221 pounds. Slot receiver. Former four year starter and senior year captain for Kohnhead City University in the NSCF. Will play for the Mukeruzi Hyenas in the GFLB.
Lafi Senghore. #17, 28 years old. 6'2, 190 pounds. Three year starter at Wide Receiver at Loyola-Istria.
Kawsu Gaye. #81, 22 years old. 5'9, 185 pounds. Four year starter at Mara Sara Tech University. Slot receiver.
Berechiah Ramogi. #87, 30 years old. 6'0, 188 pounds. Plays for Busukuma Suns.
Koro Kutate. #84, 24 years old. Plays for Busukuma Atletic Club.

Banija has made the first change to their WR room in what feels like forever. Long dominated by superstar WRs Chinweuba Jelan and Lamin Kah(both of whom racked up all sorts of awards and accolades in college), both are aging out of NT play, choosing to retire while on top. Jelan is 35, and Kah is 34- quite old ages for those to be your top two WRs. Fortunately, the Banijans seem to be re-loading. Alazar is a clear WR1 at this level, and is itching for the chance to prove it. Behind him, it's an all-out war to try and get the WR2 job. Lafi Senghore clearly has the inside track, due to his own experience and talent, but a number of Banijan WRs are chomping at the bit.

Tight Ends.
Zedekiah Akoth. #81, 27 years old. Blocking Tight End. Plays for the Busukuma Suns.
Rada Menasse. #85, 33 years old. Balanced Tight End. Graduate of Northern Moravica University in the NSCF. Plays for the Hoima Zebras in the GFLB.
Corban Aoko. #80, 29 years old. Pass catching Tight End. Plays for the Busukuma Suns.

The tight ends in the Serpent Eagle's offense, historically, simply do not get much attention in the passing game. The Banijans love to use 11 personnel- which is 1 running back, 1 tight end, 3 wide receivers. Like many teams in the modern game, we do not carry a fullback. These tight ends are generally expected to block. And they do their job well. Akoth is an aggressive blocker, both in the run game and pass game, and he helps establish the team's physicality on the line of scrimmage that their head coach, Thomas Hall, so embraces.

With the WR room getting a little bit thinner, however, expect tight ends to feature more in the passing game. Akoth is never going to light up your fantasy scoreboards- however, it is expected that they become a greater part of the offense, especially in the red zone.

Left Tackle.
Moses Busara. #65, 28 years old. 6'6, 295 pounds. Four year starter at Cold Hill from NSCFs 22-25. Plays for the Sisonke Leopards.
Chioma Obyke. #69, 33 years old. NSCF XXII & XXIII starter for Northern Moravica. Plays for the Dukuma Dragons.

Left Guard.
Olefile Dithapelo. #64, 36 years old. Plays for Askatasuna Wildcats. NSCF XXII starter for Northern Moravica. Third World Bowl, second as a starter.
Addo Kargbo. #60, 33 years old. Plays for the Lwanga Rhinos. Three year starter at U of Moravica, NSCF XXIII starter at Northern Moravica.

Center.
Jamaal Afiri. #57. 33 years old. Plays for the Busembe Timberwolves. First year as a starter.
Mindika Oduo #50. 25 years old. Two year starter for Loyola-Istria in the NSCF. PLays for the Herzegovina City Cobras in the GFLB.

Right Guard.
Bayou Awash. #68. 33 years old. NSCF 22 & 23 Starter for Loyola-Istria. Plays for the Istria Black Mambas.
Jordan Karamba. #61. 34 years old. NSCF 22 & 23 for Northern Moravica. Will play for the St. Jakob Honey Badgers in the GFLB.

Right Tackle.
Jelani Emeka.#65, 25 years old. Four year starter for Mar Sara Tech in the NSCF at Left Tackle, from NSCFs XXIII-XVI. Plays for the Istria Black Mambas in the GFLB.
Idi Coulibaly. #71, 28 years old. Two year starter for Loyola-Istria in the NSCF(NSCFs 24 and 25). Will play for the Kosactus Red Vultures in the GFLB.

Everything changes, everything stays the same, eh? Plenty of continuity at the skill positions, but not so much on the line of scrimmage. Both starting tackles are brand new, but certainly blue chip prospects. Moses Busara was a dominant force at left tackle for Cold Hill University, dominating at every facet of the game. Jelani Emeka was a similar force at left tackle for Mar Sara Tech. With Emeka having more experience at RT, Busara was placed on the left, with Emeka on the right, to be the anchors for this national team at the tackle positions for at least a few cycles.

With the center also being a first time starter, the experience on this line comes only from the guard positions. There's certainly the talent to take over the line of scrimmage, and the game, whenever they take the field. But will this line have the chemistry or consistency to do just that?


Defense 3-4.

Left Defensive End.
Calamus Otieno. #93, 30 years old. Graduate of the University of Ankole. Starter for the Istria Black Mambas. Second year starter.
Zedekiah Julu. #91, 29 years old. Graduate of Hangaza Tech. Starter for the Hoima Zebras.

Right Defensive End.
Birom Ogunsola #96, 27 years old. Three year starter(NSCFs 23-25) at Northern Moravica. Former Five star recruit in high school. Plays for the Jinja City Springboks. Second year starter.
Wassa Ouattara. #90, 32 years old. NSCF XXIV Starter for Northern Moravica. Plays for the Aissa Crocodiles in the GFLB.

Nose Tackle.
Essa Marong. #95, 28 years old. 6'3, 299 pounds. Two year starter at Northern Moravica(NSCFs BLANK-25). Plays for the Rukunbi Wizards.. Second year starter.
Sajo Biri. #99, 27 years old. 6'4, 300 pounds. Two year starter at Loyola-Istria(NSCFs BLANK-25). Starter for the Lwanga Rhinos.
Enan Akumu. #98, 34 years old. Plays for Busukuma Athletic Club.

Left Outside Linebacker. (Typically a pash rusher in passing situations- both players at this position are EDGE guys)
Onindo Agot #40, 31 years old. Starter for the Busembe Timberwolves.
Titus Ayange. #55, 25 years old. Starter for the Herzegovina City Cobras.

This team has traditionally been built around their front 7, however, the talent disposition of the team is all out of wack. With the explosion of the offensive game in Banija in recent years, Banija's best talent is on the offensive side of the football- leaving defensive maestro Thomas Hall with the task of getting these guys up to shape. Ogunsola is the only member of this front 4 who is probably of the 'star' caliber. With a scheme built around getting pressure on the quarterback, Thomas Hall is going to have his when he tries to coach and scheme defenders into the backfield to wreak havoc.

This team will substitute often on their defensive line, valuing keeping guys fresh. Like we said above, only Ogunsola is approaching star level talent- the rest of these guys are in the 'good' category when it comes to pure talent levels. Coming freshly off winning a world title, however, Thomas Hall has brought back the entirety of the front 4, both starters and backups, looking for year over year improvement.

Middle Linebacker.
Demas Akech. #57, 25 years old. Starter for the Jinja City Springboks. Second year as NT starter.
Nfansu Fara. #47, 27 years old. Starter for the Isipongo Wild Boars.
Falla Dubore. #56, 30 years old. Plays for the Mynda Gorillas.
Bakary Jaiteh. #59, 25 years old. Starter for Umbazi Metropolitan Sporting Club.

Strong Side Outside Linebacker. (Usually drops into coverage in passing situations)
Moses Luwum. #41, 29 years old. Starter for the Lwanga Rhinos.
Jatto Fanyeh. #52, 27 years old. Starter for the Mukeruzi Hyenas.

Of course, Isaiah Bryce is finally retired, and the other linebacker spots are seeing a revamp. 3 of Banija's 4 linebackers on the roster retired, as Demas Akech is suddenly at the center of the Banijan defense. This is a defense, of course, whose strength lies in their secondary, so like the front 4, this is mostly solid players- good, but none of them are what you'd consider great.

Cornerbacks.
Makang Secka. #25, 27 years old. Four year starter at Richardson University(Ranoria) in the NSCF. Nicknamed 'the Banijan Ballhawk'. Plays for the Rukunbi Wizards in the GFLB. Third year starter for the NT.
Koman Tabor. #39, 25 years old. Four year starter at Cold Hill in the NSCF. Plays for the Jinja City Springboks in the GFLB. Second year starter for the NT.
Ayax Kowtame. #25, 26 years old. Starter for the Sisonke Leopards. Primary nickel back.
Ephraim Okomo. #24, 33 years old. Starter for the Askatasuna Wildcats.
Madue Uzoma. #31, 33 years old. NSCF 22 & 23 starter and graduate for Loyola-Istria. Starter for the Askatasuna Wildcats.

Strong Safety.
Hebron Okungu.. #26, 31 years old. Starter for the Mynda Gorillas.
Ganya Ikhanda. #27, 26 years old. Starter for the Istria Black Mambas

Free Safety.
Ozioma Mazzi. #19, 25 years old. Four-year starter at Felswyr State in the NSCF. Will play for the Port Stovine Sea Turtles.
Dabu Cakaza. #20, 25 years old. Starter for Bunyoro Regional Sporting Club.

And now, for the secondary. Some things change, some things stay the same- and Thomas Hall, at his own position, has brought back every single player from his own position group. They, of course, are littered with stars in their secondary- with Secka and Tabor on the outside, and Mazzi patrolling as a free-ranging center field/free safety hybrid. This is, without a doubt, the strength of their defense. They dare you to attack them this way, and when their offense is clicking, this is a defense that loves to pounce and takes pride in all of the little things.


Special Teams.

My punter is the holder for field goals, just to be clear. My punter does normal kickoffs while my kicker does onside kicks. Lastly, my kicker is my backup punter and my punter is my backup kicker, just in case you RP an injury to one.

Long Snapper
Bishaar Kaynaan. #61. 31 years old. Plays for the Herzegovina City Cobras in the GFLB.

Kick/Punt Returner.
Ganya Ikhanda. #27, 26 years old. Starter for the Istria Black Mambas. Backup strong safety.
Koro Kutate. #84, 24 years old. Plays for Busukuma Atletic Club. 5th string wide receiver on the NT.

Kicker.
Komani Achaje. #3, 37 years old. Maximum range is somewhere between 50 and 63 yards. Starter for the Istria Black Mambas.

Punter.
Travis Galubasi #2. 36 years old. Starter for the Sisonke Leopards.

With Jelan having retired, this is a team that will be significantly less explosive in the return game. While Jelan could take almost anything for a home run, the return game this time around is probably simply known as solid- not outright spectacular, but certainly not a weakness, either. Probably won't win you a game, but won't lose you a game either with muffs or crazy penalties.

At the other positions- familiar faces. The long snapper, kicker, and punter are all returning.


Head Coach: Thomas Hall(Ranoria). 60 years old. The Olympic Committee of Banija, frustrated with failure after failure of Alastair Jobs, the legendary Loyola coach, after his World Bowl 37 semifinal run, has finally forced Jobs out. The Banijans believe that they have the talent to get into the knockout stages of major tournaments, prepping to make deep WB runs within a tournament or two- whether they should or not, is another question entirely. They also felt they needed a culture change- a coach with a record at the professional level, rather than a college coach.

After searching long and wide, they looked to Ranoria, one of their football rivals, to find a coach. The opposite of Alastair Jobs. As a player, Hall was the career leader in the Ranorian Football League with 62 career interceptions. He had immediately success. The Banijan national team didn't make the knockout stages at either World Bowl 38 or 39, and it was the group stage elimination at the Istria Olympiad that got his predecessor fired. Thomas Hall, however, hit the ground running. Changing the team's focus from a spread 'em out speed team to more of a power team, he went 10-0 in the group stages of World Bowl XL, and took the Serpent Eagles to their first ever World Bowl final.

After a quarterfinal appearance at World Bowl XLI, he said it's time to revamp the team's offense. "We've got stars on the outside with Lamin Kah and Chinweuba Jelan on the outside- we can't let that go to waste." Whereas Banija has been ground and pound for the last two tournaments, expect them to lean more towards spreading around the football and lighting up the scoreboard, to take advantage of the star players they have at the skill positions on offense. However, the revamp hasn't worked thus far, with a quarterfinal elimination to Ranoria at World Bowl XLII, and a stunning first round playoff exit to South Newlandia at World Bowl XLIII.

But he recovered from that quite well. After falling in a shootout against Bongo Johnson on the opening day of World Bowl XLIV, the Serpent Eagles started winning- and they literally didn't lose again, winning 8 group stage games in a row, followed by four more in the knockout stages to bring the damn trophy home. The defensive ace winning behind a high-powered offense- although the defense came up clutch in the semis and the final. Probably a decent chunk of Banijans think he could walk on water, bringing home this long awaited title. "I haven't bought a drink in three years." Coach Hall chuckled.

Of course, with his ambition and competitiveness, he's going for it. "Who says we've gotta be done winning?" He told reporters. "It makes me even hungrier- we've won once, and now that we know what it's like, we'll do anything for a taste of that again."

Offensive Coordinator & Assistant Head Coach: Kopo Bogadi. 47 years old. To say Bogadi's first turn as an OC at World Bowl XLIV was a success would be an understatement. Of course, the ring on his finger. But the Banijan offense scored over 30 points in each of their first 11 games of the tournament, as nobody could stop the Banijan offense.

Honeslty, it's a miracle Bogadi wasn't hired away by a GFLB team to be their head coach. "I had my interviews, I had offers." He told reporters. "But I wanted to run it back with the NT- doing it for your country, who wouldn't want to do that?" Expect another high powered offense.

Other notable Offensive Staff: Former NSCF 14 and NSCF 17 champion, Loyola alum running back Justice Greenspan is the running backs coach. He is 53 years old. 56 year old Ugonna Chioma is the Quarterbacks Coach. 64 year old Uchey Akachi is the Wide Receivers Coach. 63 year old Beluchi Chika is the Offensive Line Coach. And 45 year old Mamadi Diene Jr.(the former offensive coordinator's youngest son) is the Tight Ends Coach.

Defensive Coordinator: David Franklin. 59 years old. David Franklin was a starting middle linebacker on Loyola-Istria's NSCF 14 title team, and he was a defensive captain on Banija's run to the World Bowl XXXVI semifinals. With the defensive coordinator from the last two tournaments taking his talents to South Newlandia to become head coach at Elephant Valley University, Franklin got the promotion. This will now be his fourth World Bowl as the defensive coordinator.

Of course, Thomas Hall took over as the defensive player-caller himself at the last tournament, to fantastic results. It was an adjustment that went well last time, and Franklin says that it works well for the team. "There will still be plenty for me to do, even if Hall is calling the plays himself."

Stadium of the Restoration
Image
Location: Busukuma, National Capitol Region, Banija. Capacity: 91,835

The Stadium of the Restoration is the country's national stadium, used primarily for both gridiron and association football. It is located in the northern part of Busukuma, Banija's capitol city. It is built between the "northern hills of Busukuma" where Banija's first independence was declared, an event known as the restoration of the Banijan monarchy. It is a revered and hallowed stadium for sports fans throughout the country.

A number of major events have been held here, including two World Bowl Finals, a Baptism of Fire Final, a Cup of Harmony Final, two AOCAF Finals, an IFCF Champions League Final, and the opening matches of two World Cups, as well as two World Cup semifinals. Furthermore, it has hosted multiple NSCF bowl games, as well as the NSCF Championship game. It is also the site of the annual BGFL National Championship Game. It is the regular home stadium for both national football teams, gridiron and association. The stadium, rebuilt shortly before World Cup 81, which Banija co-hosted alongside the Free Republics, has a turf gridiron field that lies underneath the grass soccer field.

Traditionally, Banija would rotate their home games around the country. However, for World Bowls XL-XLII, they played all their home games at the national stadium. With the team spreading games across the country at World Bowls XLIII and XLIV, they will continue to do so at this tournament. This stadium will host both the opening and final games of the group stages- the first to hang the title banner from World Bowl XLIV, and the last to close out the home stretch of the group stages.

DRAWKLAND NATIONAL FOOTBALL TEAM (GRID CORPS)

World Bowl XXX Champions
World Bowl XXXV Champions


Name: Grid Corps
Colors: Black with Crimson trim
Denonyms: Drawkian or Drawkish, personal preference
EIGHTEENTH World Bowl, Rank #7
Manager: Vincent Lovell
Head Coach: Glenn Romano
Coordinators:
[O] George Connell
[D] Simian Schofield
[ST] Mark Rollins

The former champions of the World Bowl (XXX and XXXV), and worryingly frequent runners-up (XXXVI, XXXVIII, XLI, XLIII): the Grid Corps! They're back at it again, aiming to lose a historic FIFTH World Bowl final!

ROSTER / DEPTH CHART
Here's the roster containing the names, numbers, and notes for each player. Players are listed in depth chart order.

After World Bowl XLI, a vast majority of the roster elected to retire from World Bowl play, as they'd been around for like a billion years. Most of the players here are young, being standout rookies or even some players still in college. Growing pains have been happening, but they've made a World Bowl final now together. They're more a cohesive unit than they have been in years. The holdovers from the previous squads (Beck, Hoy, Cross) are the captains as well as the ones expected to lead the team in pretty much every way.

As far as player rotation goes, generally the starters will go for a majority of the match barring cases of injury or fatigue, obviously. A lot of the players on this roster are specialized, exceptionally good in certain situations. Those players are prioritized in those downs and scenarios as necessary, even if they're normally at the bottom of the depth chart.

Now-veteran QB Dustin Beck will play the whole game unless he's injured. At halfback, Jack Hoy will go for most of the game, but expect the next fellas on the depth chart to receive more snaps than they would've in previous WBs. Starting linemen will generally play the whole game. Defensively, the secondary will shuffle after the half on occasion. Some of the front 7 will shuffle as well, but generally Cross will always be in. Merit always kicks field goals and Clacher always does kickoffs. Flan always punts, unless big yardage is needed, then Clacher punts.

STRATEGY
The name of the game for the Grid Corps is aggression and power.

The offense of the Grid Corps is balanced, splitting up responsibilities for yardage between running and passing plays. None is really favored over the other, since everybody on the team is good, but in crucial situations, they're likely to pass more than run (although running is still used to keep the defense honest). The base formation is the shotgun, although the singleback, pistol, and sometimes I are still common. Most shotgun plays are run from a single RB set, although having a FB or another RB in the backfield isn't out of the ordinary. The most common personnel is RB-TE-WR-WR-WR, but the Corps is willing to mix any amount of personnel thanks to the depth and skill at their disposal.

Most running plays are either inside the tackles or just outside them. Stretch runs are rare unless the blocking is on point, or the opposing defense can't stop them. Zone running and power running are evenly split. Fullback-led runs are also very common, especially on third down and in the red zone. A very common play is a triple option out of the I formation: it could be a fullback handoff, a halfback pitch, or a quarterback keeper. The Wildcat formation always shows up a couple times a game, especially if the opposing defense can't stop it. Passing plays have a lot of elements, not necessarily a vertical offense but not necessarily a conservative one either. Deep routes are thrown relatively often to keep the defense honest thanks to the incredible QB and WR talent available. When the game is tight, the Corps is excellent at the hurry-up offense, having a deep playbook to constantly keep the defense off guard.

The defense is also aggressive. Blitzing is very, very common, as the defense is fearless. Even on non-blitz plays, the defensive linemen go all out. Man blitzes on first down are a regularity, especially if it's working. When an opposing offense is stuck inside the five, the Corps will likely come out with everyone except the defensive backs blitzing. Scoring safeties are the pride of the Grid Corps, and thus they'll go for it as much as possible. They'll also pack the line on the other goalline inside the five, but if a team is 3rd/4th and Goal outside of the 7 or 8, they're likely to just pack the end zone with as many defensive backs as possible. When not in goalline formation, they'll usually opt for a 4-man rush. 4-3 and Nickel defenses are Corps staples, unless the situation calls for a change in strategy (obviously). The Corps runs both man and zone evenly, but prefers Cover 2 man. Usually they'll start with man coverage until the team they're playing shows proficiency in beating man, then they'll switch to zone with man and the trademark blitzes thrown in. Zone blitzes on crucial third downs have been known to happen. In all, they aren't afraid to take chances in big spots and bring pressure.

Special teams for the Grid Corps is prone to fake plays. Whether it's a misleading kick return (moving all the blockers to the opposite side of the field from where the ball is going), lateral returns even when the game doesn't depend on it, passes or runs from special teams formations, the Corps practices it all. In addition, the defensive special teams is highly aggressive. Rushing on punt returns, super fast kick blocks, or even line hurdling to block kicks. This is made much easier by the physiology of the Corps of course. David Merit will always do placekicks, Tristan Clacher will always do kickoffs, and Jared Flan will always punt, unless injuries occur. Clacher can also do punts in situations where we need a big yardage kick.

The Corps often opts for two-points conversions for their first few touchdowns. In a blowout win, they'll likely shift to normal PATs after the half. Obviously, they'll go for PATs when the game situation overwhelmingly demands it. The playbook is deep and the number of dynamic playmakers means that two point conversion plays are plentiful and well-rehearsed, hence why they're pretty fearless going for it.

PHYSIOLOGY
I recommend you read this. It contains important information on how Drawkians are different from your average human. In a nutshell, they're over 7 feet tall on average, and have larger proportions to match. Now, they're also lankier and less stocky all-around, but that doesn't mean some like a D-tackle can't get thick and muscular, it's not just not the average build. Now, this may conflict with some of your RPing preferences or make it harder to RP about us, so you're totally free to just ignore that and pretend we're the same as humans. That's totally your call, and I don't mind it either way.

VENUE
Image

For group stage home games, Drawkland will be playing in Metro Arena, the 150,000 seat indoor gridiron stadium in the heart of Metropolon, Drawkland's capital.

PERMISSIONS
My opponent, if they RP first, may do the following:
Choose my Scorers: Yes.
Choose Scoring Events: Yes.

RP Injuries to my Players: To an extent (also please tell me if you do).
Godmod Injuries to my Players: Fine if it's funny or serves a story.

World Bowl XLV Group Stage Preview
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA


You know what? I'm just not going to talk about what happened last cycle.

After the World Bowl XLIV playoffs, it became clear to me that my gut has no idea what it's doing. Sometimes, it's right on point. Last group stage, I felt that the Corps would go 2-1 against each group stage opponent for a 6-3 record. I was right on the fucking money with that one, for some reason. It didn't make sense, we had one of the weakest groups in the tournament, facing an unranked and super low ranked team, and yet we still couldn't get the job done.

Meanwhile, I see that we're drawn against Ranoria, yes, THAT Ranoria, in the Round of 16. Every instinct in my body was screaming that we were going to get assblasted once again and sent home far too early. Instead, Leo Cross obliterated Eric van Geel to force a fumble late in the game, turning momentum and ball control over to Drawkland for the final minutes. This move was enough to end both van Geel's career and Ranoria's run in the World Bowl. It's still bizarre to me that we pulled that game out, and yet it was all for nothing.

My gut betrayed me against Ranoria, but that was a welcome upset. Beating Ranoria was almost enough to vindicate the shitty group stage ... almost. My gut had the opposite feeling going into the quarterfinal game against Kriegiersien. We just got off one of our best wins in years, and now we're going against a team we had faced thrice and had unfinished business with. Surely this is a recipe to catapult us into the semifinals, right? Perfect momentum to spur us through to the final, right? WRONG. Instead, our defense goes on to allow 27 points, our second largest allowance ALL SEASON, at the exact worst time, and-

FUCK. I said I wasn't going to talk about it. It's just ... hard to make sense of it.

Personnel Changes


Let's just get into the nitty-gritty this season, because that's about all we can do anymore. There was one coaching change this season: Mathis Southers was relieved from his duties as defensive coordinator. He'd been the DC for the Grid Corps for well over a decade, and been the head of several decent Corps defensive units. He was the only holdover from the Quentin Averfel administration which had been ceremoniously launched into the ocean at the conclusion of World Bowl XLIII, mostly because DISC wanted someone from the old staff to stick around for culture reasons. Plus, the defense was probably the least shitty part of that XLIII roster that somehow made it all the way to the final.

The defense was actually really good last season, up until the last few games of the group stage where they couldn't manage to stop Kriegiersien or Gyatso-Kai. This drop in seeding set us up with a first-round date against Ranoria. Obviously with hindsight it doesn't look as bad because we beat the Krauts anyway, but that game shouldn't have happened in the first place. Then there was the 27 points allowed in the quarterfinal, once against causing us to crumble to Kriegiersien. I don't care what you say about our offense; a team allowing 27 points without garbage time involvement should not be expected to win that game.

Anyway, with the "culture" and "tradition" of the Corps successfully passed on to the new generation, and general incompetence in defensive scheming on full display in the World Bowl playoffs, Southers was shown the door just one cycle after his compatriots of the Old Corps staff. In his place we now have Simian Schofield. Schofield was actually a descendent of Quentin Averfel's coaching tree by way of Mathis Southers himself. You may think this is a bad sign (it gives me a bad gut feeling, but I'm starting to not trust that little shit), but his defensive units on the Kayo Globes have been the best-performing in the GLD over the last five years. Honestly, we'll just have to see how it plays out. It'll be pretty hard to top the failure of Southers last cycle, given the talent on this unit.

As far as the roster itself is concerned, there's been little turnover. A lot of the guys brought in these last couple cycles have been fresh out of college or still in their early careers, and this was intentional. The old Corps rosters of the past were dominated by the same group of players, to assist continuity, trust, and chemistry throughout the team. On one hand, I can see the logic of DISC and roster manager Vincent Lovell. They don't want to make huge changes to NT operations, especially not this early into the new tenure. If the plan pans out, then you could see a new golden generation in the Grid Corps, a large group of players who work really well together and could dominate for years to come. On the other hand, hanging onto the same roster for too long is arguably what led to Averfel's downfall in the first place. Only time will tell how this bargain plays out.

The biggest roster change comes on the heel of Quinn Conrad's retirement. The veteran TE had been on the Corps for the last few seasons, but recently retired from play after last domestic season. Cavsar alum Jonathan Kimbrough has been tearing it up as advertised in the GLD, and with his skillset, he looks like he wants to take the mantle of "Best Drawkian Tight End" all for himself. He has big shoes to fill: the retired Rich Covington was one of the best receiving TE's in Drawkian history. Riley Hoyt (who will be sorely missed) was also a crucial piece. Both of these men retired several cycles ago, but the Corps has been searching for that key piece in the middle of the field since they left. Quinn Conrad was a good stopgap, but he was already aging when he got the starting NT role. Kimbrough promises to be The Man in that respect, and now he's expected to be the Grid Corps starter from week one. To fill the now-vacant roster spot, Lovell recruited the big-bodied Clay Holgunn, a solid choice to be second-string in this scheme.

In much less relevant news, Sadeg State alum and mid GLD quarterback Nick Parks was not invited back for this season. Instead, the recent Cavsar graduate Lane Proudfoot will be taking the position of Glorified Clipboard Holder - *ahem* - sorry, third-string QB. No doubt Proudfoot only accepted it to cross new nationalities off his fbucket list during road games. I like this move because it ignited a seethestorm from Sadeg State fans that raged for weeks. It was hilarious. As for its ramifications on this World Bowl run, it should amount to literally nothing. Unless Dustin Beck gets seriously injured, there's no chance Proudfoot gets anything but pity snaps in garbage time. The story of Proudfoot is pretty funny, but I will save that for another time.

Group Stage Preview


You know, I wanted to complain about being drawn into a Group of Death, but the more that I look at this World Bowl draw, the more I realize that it's just how the World Bowl operates now. It doesn't help that in a five-group format, our seventh-ranked Corps has to suffer in pot two, but that's just reaping what we've sown. The World Bowl has become a very condensed competition: though we have a reasonable amount of new blood and a solid core of returning nations, cycle-to-cycle nation retention has seemed to suffer. What we have now is a competition where the top two pots are incredibly dense with contenders, and then a very steep dropoff to the non-contenders.

Our group is one of the most difficult according to average rank, but nothing can beat the apparent gauntlet of Group C. However, most of the teams in Group C just seem like paper tigers to me. TJUN-ia, while highly ranked, is being helped by big group stage records despite little playoff success. Saint Kanye is a fearsome force as well, but they haven't come close to their success in World Bowl XLII. HUElavia haven't had a good playoff run ever, and Kriegiersien, while unfortunately having the potential for playoff chaos, is not a consistent enough team to be a threat. Meanwhile, our group is more rife with real contenders. Sort of.

We'll start with the newer nations. The Jovannic is the resident unranked nation, thought they do have prior World Bowl experience. They haven't had any major highlights in their history, and last participated in World Bowl XXXIX, where they won only three games. Theoretically, this should be a doormat team in our group. However, one of their three wins in XXXIX was 7-0 over Ko-oren ... the same team that beat us 6-3 later that cycle. So while this squad is nothing to write home about, we can't deny they could have potential for a surprising upset against a highly-ranked team. Knowing our luck, that'll be us. I predict we go 1-1 against The Jovannic.

The lowest ranked nation in our group is Arjunnagar, a nation which hasn't participated since World Bowl XLII (their first appearance). Not much is known about them, but they went 1-7 in that group stage and haven't returned to the scene since. I highly doubt their roster has any playmakers, and in theory, we should be beating them both home and away. I know it's easy to be pessimistic and predict a loss, but it just doesn't make sense here. We should be going 2-0 against this team.

From Ajunnagar's 42nd, we jump all the way to the 19th-ranked Quebec and Shingoryeo. The Grim Reapers have been around off-and-on for many cycles, and have never put it all the way together. I suspect their NT roster being comprised mostly of collegiate all-stars has something to do with it, but I'm not in charge of them. As for our chances against them this group stage, I think they have a definite chance to take a game off of us. I still think we'll sweep them, though. Only time will tell, but I'll put my neck on the line and predict a 2-0 series in our favor.

The pot three team in our group is none other than Abanhfleft. Quite honestly this is the best possible draw for us, because we own the Revolutionaries. Abanhfleft has only beaten the Grid Corps one time, and that was in a meaningless group stage match by a slim margin. Now, to be fair, we could easily end up recreating those exact circumstances in this group stage as well. With the way both our teams are performing right now, though? It should be a 2-0 sweep.

Jumping up to pot one, and we ended up drawing none other than the "undisputed" #1 team in Delaclava. I don't know where the FUCK they got the idea that this ranking was undisputed, because I don't think anybody believes the Phoenixes are the best team in World Bowl football. Sure, mathematically, they have earned the most ranking points over the last three cycles. This is helped enormously by the fact that Ranoria had a shitty group stage last cycle and proceeded to get bitched by us in the first round of the playoffs. There is so much parity among the upper echelon of the World Bowl right now, regardless of what the ranks say. Delaclava hasn't reached a World Bowl championship game since World Bowl XV (you read that right), which they also hosted. That doesn't scream #1 team to me. Anyway, they're still a good team and will obviously be hungry to beat us, because they're desperate for any sort of validation for their fraudulent ranking. I predict a 1-1 split, but I honestly think one of us will get a sweep (no way of telling who it will be, though).

Playoffs?


Most oddsmakers are pegging Drawkland (pause) to win 7.5 games this group stage. Now I know you're not shocked to see me be pessimistic about the situation, but I will be putting money on the under this cycle. I doubt we will sweep Delaclava, and I'm certain a lower-half nation will grab a win off of us, yet only two losses seems too few. The Grid Corps used to be a group stage monster that would usually slip out of the playoffs early, and recently we've flipped the script to have a clunker of a group stage followed by a clutch (read: heart-attack inducing) playoff run.

There's not telling how the still new-look Corps is going to operate going into this. Obviously all eyes will be on the Drawkland vs Delaclava matchups, as both of us have a lot to prove. Those games are in the innocuous 3rd and 8th matches of the group stage, so there will be no crazy last-matchday hype going into the games like in World Bowl XXXIX. There's also plenty of time to prepare for the games and recover from them regardless of result, so there's really no excuse. These games will simply be proof of which team is better. Barring strange upsets running amuck in the group, the more convincing team in the Drawk vs Dela series will win the group.

With the top three teams in each group making the playoffs, it's essentially unthinkable for the Grid Corps to miss the playoffs at this point. Now, never say never, as even a team like the mighty Net Corps can miss the playoffs, but the Grid Corps has been a lot more solid than the Net Corps was that cycle they missed. At this point it's not if we make the playoffs, it's where we'll land in the seeding and who we'll be playing. It's possible that we win the group, especially considering the fact that Delaclava sucks, but it's also possible we barely scrape by in a 2nd or, God forbid, 3rd position in the group.

It's impossible to predict how the Grid Corps will perform in a given cycle. Just when you think they're starting to resemble a dumpster full of trap grease, they pull a random playoff run out of their ass. Just when you think they're worldbeaters, they get shitcanned by some random team in the playoffs. Sometimes it feels like the way this team turns out is entirely random. Regardless, I feel it's worth mentioning that the Grid Corps has made it to the championship of the last two odd-numbered World Bowls, won third place in the third-most-recent odd-numbered Bowl, and that I'm slave to worthless stats.

I am glad that it is football season once again. I am excited to see the Grid Corps hopefully improve with this newer core of players. I am hoping that Dustin Beck will manage to win one more title soon so he can retire before he becomes dogwater. I am painfully aware that I will witness a heartbreaking loss with my own eyes in just a few weeks from now. I am stopping before I enter a downward spiral thinking about this team.

LA NATIONALE JUVEN DE GRIDIRON


Roster comments: Juven Gridiron is known for being particularly rough and being focused on the speed of the players, regardless of position. Any team playing La Nationale should prepare to play against players of medium to tall stature gifted with unnatural running speed. On the offence, quarter-back to wide receiver action is focused on really long throws that are short in height which will allow the wide receivers to outplay any defenders by using their speed to their advantadge. On the defence, whoever controls the ball should expect a couple players coming right at them with extreme speed to get the ball away from them. Juven players also exhibit a habit of talking trash in game and especially after victory or a great play, which helps a lot on the mental side of things. On the flip side, however, most players are not as physically strong which means any tanky player would get through most Juven players one-on-one. Also the talking trash habit can easily turn into toxicity too, so the players end up being very unlikeable. With that said, this squad gave its first try in the Olympic Gridiron Competition on which they did not manage to get through the group stages, despite their great efforts. They are looking on spicing things up in the World Bowl however, using a more offensive strategy that will utilise their running speed to the fullest.

Kriegiersien Gridiron Football National Team


To celebrate the Olympic silver medal (even though it was only a demonstration tournament), the team is now utterly clad in silver.
Image

After reaching the semis of the World Bowl 44 (losing against Ko-oren) and the final of the Olympics in Gridiron, losing to Chromatika, the dwarven team around their orcish star player Dudagog became legendary in Kriegiersien and got an immediate Wild Card for World Bowl 45.


Image

Aturim Deephides Stonecutter School

The school was opened by the legendary Aturim Deephide, a dwarven Master Stonecutter who wanted to share his skills with the young generation. It is at least a few hundred years old.
Blood Ball was a sport often played by dwarfs and only after Kriegiersien took over the lands where the dwarves lived, they came in contact with other sports. The even more ruthless and ruleless football variant Kriegiersien Football lost its appeal soon, but the Stonecutter School was one of the first to change to the international approved version, but without any major success outside of their region, before becoming the National team of Kriegiersien by accident, when they were the only ones to be able and interested to fill out the registration form.



The line-ups of dwarven Football teams are since the old times pretty simple. There are players who are defending and players who attack to get the ball over the line. In case of bad injuries players have to switch between roles.
One player is responsible for kicking the ball.

Dudagog, an Orcish Tight End and best Kriegiersien player of all times, had been forced to play for the squad and, even if still hated by the rest of the team, makes the difference.
Outside of international tournaments the dwarfs still refuse to let outsiders play for their team.



Coach:
Silly Deepdottar

Torit Bonebraker (Defense-Coordinator)
Darut Fastfoot (Offense Coordinator)
Barry Bonebender (Medic)

Defense

Loghot Giantchest
Krordraeth Duskfeet
Reirmoug Barbedsword
Strosdroick Minehand
Torernuth Smeltforge
Neldrolin Caskstone
Murarlug Flatbasher
Bhasuck Blazingflayer
Dwovrean Heavyflayer
Brakgreath Anvilfury
Bariznotalyn Deepcloak


Offense

Thromodrid Oregrip
Thatean Graygrog
Randit Trollbow
Tharsaic Whitbrewer

Stromdarlum Woldmane
Grokrol Wyvernfinger
Orurum Stormbrewer
Forsaek Longgranite
Norarfulim Bronzegrog
Butath Drakeriver
Dudagog

Kicker

Tungdil Bigfoot



The stadium of the stonecutters, the Hall of Stone was build for sports by the students themselves and is the envy of all Stadiums in Kriegiersien for its architecture. It got chosen for the national team matches.

Nickname: Boarcupines


Head Coach: Nabru RE'YEM
Age: 47 | Years as Head Coach: 1

The former Head Coach of two-time Avatarian Collegiate Sports Confederation National Champions, the Adirolf Gators, Nabru Re'yem was selected from a pool of fifteen collegiate and professional Coaches to command Gyatso-kai's first-ever National Gridiron team. Considered one of the most accomplished practitioners of the spread offence, Re'yem's teams at Bowling Blue, Hatu State, Adirolf, as well as his first professional team in Rev’ned all have run the spread, chiefly utilising a run-first variation, often tweaked to fit his offensive personnel; for example, Re'yem's first two years ad Adirolf skewed toward a drop-back passing attack lead by Risch Keal, while Alex Smith and Mit Wobet lead an option run-based spread. It would be under this offence that Re'yem would win twp ACSC titles, as well as becoming the first coach to lead a non-CBS conference team (Hatu State) to a CBS bowl and coaching a Shaoyin Trophy winner (Wobet) and graduating a player who became a number one overall pick in the Republic Gaan'shuk League (RGL) draft.

General Manager: SUZUKI Haru
Age: 67 | Years At Job: 1


The General Manger of the National Team, Suzuki Haru has had quite the experiences managing teams. First selected as the General Manager of FC Mando back in 1988, he has since bounced between two different sports in three nations; heading FC Mando from 1996-2001, then making the leap to RC United from 2001-2010, and since 2011, heading the Imami Dolphins organisation in the RGL. Announced as the National GM, Suzuki has been incredibly busy travelling around the Republics as well as abroad, seeking players from multiple gridiron leagues who possess Avatarian citizenship to play on the team.

Special Teams Cooridnator: NGUYEN Thomas
Age: 46 | Years At Job: 1


Not much is known is about Nguyen, save that he has been the secondary coach at Adirolf for the past two seasons, and the team has made a strong turn-around to have the #3 ranked secondary in the league when compared to their last-place position in the 2021.1 Season


Offensive Coordinator: YAMAHUCHI Qing
Age: 49 | Years At Job: 1


While most offensive coaches are out on the field during practices, giving players invaluable lessons thanks to years of experience, Yamahuchi is not given such a chance. With Re’yem’s almost-obsessive need to control everything at practice, Yamahuchi is left to call the plays during games and deal with the offensive lessons at team meeting... Poor guy...

Quaterbacks Coach: CHEN Takumi
Age: 49 | Years At Job: 1


Chen spent nearly fifteen years in Avatarian gridiron and gaan'shuk games as a spread quaterback, with all of the intangibles which made him great. The simple fact that he has such a wealth of knowledge at his disposal makes him probably one of the best QB coaches around to develop the still-young talents of Wobet and Notwen; both of whom are constantly criticized in the RGL for their ‘unique’ styles.

Running Backs Coach: SATO Yuudai
Age: 56 | Years At Job: 1


An impressive running back in the prime of his career, Sato has managed to piece together many prime combos in his years as Head Coach of Penoc State. By adding him to the national team, Re'yem hopes to bring the 'luck' Sato seems to naturally seep onto any team he has been a part of.

Receivers Coach: SHAO Liju
Age: 62 | Years At Job: 1


An old receiver who played in the days of the Pass Offence's prime, Shao has continued to impress the Management of the National Team in the three years as Receiver's Coach at the University of Imaim; given weak and less-than-average talented players, he has continued to develop a team which ranks in the Top 10 on Receiving throughout the RGL. Though, Receivers are only a part of the equation, and Shao has much work to be completed before the National Team is even considered a threat on the International stage...

Offensive Line Coach: YAMAHUCHI Qing
Age: 49 | Years At Job: 1


Taking a page from his college days, Re’yem assigned Yamahuchi has both Offensive Line Coach AND Offensive Coordinator. However, were has in the OffCo role Re’yem is constantly mucking around, Yamahuchi is more free to do his job at OLC; utilising the years of experience he has as being the Offensive Line Coach of three Supreme Bowl teams to help form a decent national team.


Defensive Coordinator: NAKAMURA Yoshi
Age: 42 | Years At Job: 1


Left to his own devices by Re'yem, Nakamura is in charge of all defensive play-calling. Having led the best defence in the RGL for the past seven years, Nakamura is the architect for the Boarcupine's flexible defence; one which the team hopes to not only slow down the momentum of any successful plays, but to outright stop them in their tracks.

Defensive Line Coach: KOIZUMI Hideyoshi
Age: 47 | Years At Job: 1


Having served on the defensive line of the RGL's top team for nearly fifteen years, Koizumi has accumulated much knowledge and experience when it comes to the defence for the Enceri Jets, which Re’yem hopes to bring to the Boarcupines.

Linebackers Coach: ALMEC Julien
Age: 37 | Years At Job: 1


Almec just recently retired from his record-setting career as a linebacker with the Yinduchengshi Maju; while he knows his position better than anyone in Gyatso-kai, he has yet to hold any real coaching job save Senior Lineback at Maju camps. Only time will tell us how great or how poor he is at passing on his knowledge.

Secondary Coach: NGUYEN Thomas
Age: 46 | Years At Job: 1


With so few players to handle, it would make little sense for the Boarcupines to hire an individual coach as opposed to simply utilising the available staff. As such, Nguyen pulls double-duty as both Secondary Coordinator and Secondary Coach.

Alternate ---------------- Home ---------------- Away





As the fifth-most common sport in the Avatarian Republics – after Ice Hockey, Football, Pro-Bending, and Collegiate Hockey – the development of the Republic Gridiron League has not been quite up to snuff when compared to the other dominant leagues in Gyatso-kai. As such, most RGL teams share facilities with their RPFL counterparts, or in the rare instance, have a dedicated facility or will have one in the future.

Image

Official Name: Stadia Capital
Local Name: The Stadia
Seating Capacitu: 78,050
Location: Beijing, Jing Prefecture, Earth Kingdom, Gyatso-kai
Games Hosted: Matchday 01, Matchday 03, Matchday 10
Located on the far western shores of Gyatso-kai, Beijing is one of the largest Earth Kingdom Cities in the nation. Taking its name from the bastion-like construction of Beijing, as well as its status as the capital of the fledgling Republics before the Unification, the Stadia Capital is primarily a football arena that will host multiple different sporting and entertainment events throughout the year. For the RGL, it serves as the home of the Beijing Ironclaws.

Given that Beijing is an Earth Kingdom City, fans in attendance will be given a crash course in Earth Kingdom traditions and life. Do not be surprised should you come across bending in your journey; unlike the egalitarian nature of Republic City and the territories of the United Republics, Earth Kingdom people take great pride to incorporate their natural bending talents into their everyday lives. From train-car systems that rely on gravity to come downhill and bending to move uphill, to the Pro-Bending League pre-season games that will be held at the Earthen Ring during the two matchdays, visitors from around the multi-verse will get a taste of the blending of the traditional and the modern that occurs throughout the Republics.

Image

Official Name: Zhou Imaim Field at BisonExpress Stadium
Local Name: 'Bison Bowl'
Seating Capacit:y 24,500
Location: Imaim City, Hajak’ai Province, Mandalore, Gyatso-kai
Games Hosted: Matchday 04, Matchday 07

Of the eighteen RGL teams, only five possess their own dedicated stadiums. One of those five is the Imaim Dolphins, who are one of the Elder Six – the six founding teams of the RGL. Located just a stone’s throw across the Kaowlu Bay from Nandikiang City, the waterfront city of Imaim is a trade hub for the Central Region of Gyatso-kai. As such, the city is bustling with activity – from the shallow water port of Port Ne’tra’piruun to the never-sleeping downtown district, Imaim is an outlier when it comes to Mandalorian cities in regard to their ‘metropolitan’ status.

Expect to see little in the traditional Mandalorian ways, and more of a fusion of modern Avatarian fashion with Mandalorian sensibilities. Think adding the Four Nations to a blender and having a Mando make the dish.

BisonExpress Stadium – so named for their sponsor – is a dedicated gridiron stadium, seating just under twenty-five-thousand fans of the Teal & Orange in lavish surroundings. Certainly not a bastion of sporting legends like those found in Kelita or Itakawai, Imaim has enjoyed some success as of late, with the Dolphins finding themselves in the playoffs as solid contenders. Expect to see far more fans in the home team jersey than the national team’s kit… though, with recent giveaways at events announcing their selection as a host stadium, that balance may shift slightly.





Team Overview


Names in GREEN are Starters.
Names in BLUE are Alternates.
Names in GOLD are Second Alternates / Situationals.
Names in STANDARD are Reserves.



Offence

Style: +3.0 out of +5.0
Primary Front: Spread Option
Overview: A team which showcases the speed and agility needed to effectively run a Spread Option style of play. Expect Wobet to pass the ball just as often as he runs it in. When under Notwen, you can expect just a bit more passing, but still, the offence will try and spread the defence wide and create perfect centre lanes for passing or rushing...

#15 - Mit WOBETTEAM CAPTAIN
Height: 191cm | Weight: 111kg | Age: 24 | College: University of Adirolf | Professional: Rev'ned Stallions


The starting quaterback and the Captain of the Boarcupines, Mit Wobet is one of the most prolific Avatarian players in the 21st Century. Holding multiple records in the ASCA's Southeastern Conference, Wobet eventually went on to lead the Adirolf Gators to back-to-back ACSC National Championships; 2017 and 2018. Wobet is known as a dual threat quaterback; one who as adept at rushing as he is at passing the football. With his unorthodox RGL skills, frequent demonstrations of his religious devotion, combined with his team's recent success, Wobet has attracted unprecedented praise, criticism, and attention from the sporting media and beyond.
Rating: A+ - Team Relationship: A+ - Morale: A+ - Form: A


#13 - Mac NOTWEN
Height: 196cm | Weight: 112kg | Age: 22 | College: University of Kibago | Professional: Linacaro Panthers


Much like his starting counterpart, Mac Notwen comes from a very prolific collegiate career; originally starting on the same team as Wobet in 2017, Notwen would end up transferring to Kibago so as to gain a starting position as opposed to back-up. He would lead Kibago to the 2020 Avatarian Collegiate Sports Confederation National Champions and then be drafted in the first round in the 2020 RGL Draft. Another double-threat, Notwen is more adept at passing, and is often brought in when the rush is not working out and Wobet is being shutdown on the run.
Rating: A - Team Relationship: A - Morale: B - Form: A


#23 - TACHIBANA Huang
Height: 182cm | Weight: 106kg | Age: 30 | College: University of Imaim | Professional: Rev'ned Stallions


In his very first professional run, Tachibana broke two defensive line tackles, six more running down the field for a 93-yard touchdown. Since then, he has continued to set multiple records season after season. Just last season, he set a team record for 180 yards in a game with ten carries and three touchdowns.
Rating: A - Team Relationship: B - Morale: A - Form: A


#35 - SHUI Jiamah
Height: 175cm | Weight: 97kg | Age: 26 | College: University of Omashu | Professional: Hitomori Hawks


Shui is a fragile speedster amongst full-sized trucks. Shui is only good in between the tackles so long as he has good blocks from the offensive lines. Running to the outside, or playing as more of a halfback, though, is a different tale. Shui is one of the fastest players on the offence, and if Shui gets free of the defence, few can catch him.
Rating: B - Team Relationship: B - Morale: B - Form: A


#37 - SATO Jirou
Height: 175cm | Weight: 90kg| Age: 25 | College: University of Kibago| Professional: Kamino Cloners


Another smaller running back, Sato lacks Tachibana's power through the middle of the field, however, he does possess enough speed to make it between the tackles. In addition, his strength is very respectable; which consider he spends his time at Kamino facing defensive men twice his size, yet he is still able to get the ball out is a feat on its own.
Rating: B- - Team Relationship: A - Morale: B - Form: C


#42 - LIN Shun
Height: 180cm | Weight: 102kg | Age: 25 | College: Penoc State University | Professional:Bralin Accipiters


Originally drafted to the Kyrimorut Troopers fresh out of Penoc State, Lin saw little success there. However, with the expansion of the RGL in 2019.3 , he soon found himself on the newest team in the league, the Bralin Accipiters. While his skills and morale leave much to be desired, his speed and form are incredibly strong; many suspect this is why he was brought onto the team. Given his size over Sato, expect to see Lin make more substitutions on the second line, while Larsen brings up front-line support.
Rating: B- - Team Relationship: B - Morale: C - Form: A


#46 - Re'spen LARSEN
Height: 188cm | Weight: 111kg | Age: 28| College: University of Omashu | Professional: Bralin Accipiters
**NOTE: Plays as Fullback**


Much like Lin, Larsen is much more the physical running back; with size, strength, and speed on his side, one can only imagine why Larsen was not on a higher line. It all comes down to morale and his relationship with the team; given his mentality, Larsen is a defeatist, one who is far more prone to lay down and give up then to get back up and fight... though with such a strong form, we can still expect to see him on the field at least twice a game. Also, given that he actually plays at the fullback position, anytime we see the Boarcupines shift from the Spread, expect to see Larsen right in the middle of it all.
Rating: C+ - Team Relationship: C - Morale: C - Form: B


#27 - HASHIMOTOIsamu
Height: 180cm| Weight: 91kg | Age: 24 | College: Roku Univesity | Professional: Kamino Cloners


Having only played two years of professional ball is not something uncommon on the Boarcupines. However, Hashimoto snuck onto the playing roster without anyone really noticing. While Hashimoto possesses some speed, some size, and decent hands, he is still a developing player out of college, though the signs point to a bright future.
Rating: C+ - Team Relationship: C - Morale: C - Form: A


#33 - YU Wei
Height: 180cm | Weight: 103kg| Age: 27 | College: Saigon City College | Professional: Yinuutki Jotuns


Having saved his chances with the national team thanks to a fantastic performance in the Supreme Bowl with the second-place Yinuutki Jotuns, Yu earns his place as a #4 running back held in reserve. Yu will rotate around with other running backs, or even may play inside-receiver on plays when his amazing speed can come into use. Many feel Yu should be placed into the Receiver Corps, yet Re'yem still keeps him in the Running Corps...
Rating: C+ - Team Relationship: C - Morale: B - Form: C


#40 - BAI Rikuto
Height: 184cm | Weight: 112kg | Age: 24 | College: Royal Earth University | Professional: Braslin Accipiters
**NOTE: Plays as Fullback**


After taking a year in-between college and his professional career to serve a tour of duty in Gaoling, Bai Rikuto makes the national team after just a single season of professional ball. Brought in mostly due to his experience running the spread at REU, Bai is not exactly a stand-out receiver, since his position at REU was first-line fullback. However, Re'yem hopes to see him develop as a strong running back in the national team in Michael VII.
Rating: C+ - Team Relationship: C - Morale: B - Form: C


#19 - Atin UTHAN
Height: 180cm | Weight: 83kg | Age: 24 | College: Hatsu State University | Professional: Rev'ned Stallions
***Note - First Choice Punt Returner, Second Choice Kick Returner ***


Drafted to the Stallions the season before the arrival of Webot, Atin Uthan was given just a year before the Stallions reverted back to his old college style. Since then, he has moved up the depth chart, finding himself in the first squad for the first time since his third season at Hatsu State. Coming in as a tremendously physical player, Uthan comes off of a close call in the Supreme Bowl for the RGL. Critical to the games he plays in due to his knack at making big plays and covering his zones, Uthan has made a habit in Rev'ned of making highlight-reel-worthy interceptions, or just ruining a perfect pass by knocking it into the ground.
Rating: A - Team Relationship: A - Morale: A - Form: A


#88 - A'den KATO
Height: 190cm | Weight: 107kg | Age: 24 | College: Hatsu State University | Professional: Itakawai Beroyas


A big-play receiver, Kato was a college teammate of Uthan, which is likely why he was picked for the national team opposite of him. While he has terrific hands, incredible speed and a kangaroo-like leaping prowess, Kato also is large enough and strong enough to be a true physical player, which you can see him from time-to-time excelling in pushing heavier defencemen back and back and back some more...
Rating: A - Team Relationship: A - Morale: A - Form: A


#87 - GANG Ru
Height: 190cm | Weight: 99kg | Age: 24 | College: Roku University | Professional: Kamino Cloners
***Note - Second Choice Punt Returner, Third Choice Kick Returner***


A player very similar to Kato in almost all areas, Gang Ru faces the challenges of size against the much larger defensive ends; the same height as Kato, Gang is about eight kilos lighter. He is somewhat quicker on the draw than Kato, which means he could end up with more time on the field. He stills needs to work on his form, which still leaves much to be desired, which surprises many as to his selection.
Rating: B - Team Relationship: B - Morale: A - Form: B


#18 - Arthit SOMCHAI
Height: 180cm | Weight: 85kg | Age: 24 | College: University of Omashu | Professional: Kamino Cloners


Another young receiver, Somchai was added to the team so as to provide depth to the veteran-filled reserves. With some big-play potential, Somchai made many pushes for the Cloners in the last half of the 202.1 Season, however, some argue his form leaves much to be desired....
Rating: B - Team Relationship: B - Morale: B - Form: C


#12 - GI Klahan Moon
Height: 182cm | Weight: 86kg | Age: 27 | College: University of Omashu | Professional: Itakawai Beroyas


A career wide receiver for the Beroyas, Gi is also the primary kick returner for the Boarcupines. Given his immense speed, few can stop him, let alone keep up with him. However, to gain such speed, he is not the biggest of men on the team. This lack of size has hampered his development through his career; as a result of a heavy hit in the RFC Playoffs, Gi missed the first half of the 2021.2 season.
Rating: B - Team Relationship: B - Morale: B - Form: A


#83 - QING Kikwan[/color]
Height: 187cm | Weight: 88kg | Age: 22 | College: University of the Southern Tribes | Professional: Kamino Cloners


The youngest player on the team, drafted in the first second round of the 2021.3 draft, Qing Kikwan comes in off of a stellar college career. However, this college career did not translate to a great professional career. Instead, it brought him from the first string of the UST Walruses to the third string of the Cloners. While his speed is impressive, his hands are just sub-par and his vision is not terrific. With time, Qing will develop into a great receiver... but that time is still to come.
Rating: C - Team Relationship: C - Morale: C - Form: B


#82 - PAM Shao
Height: 179cm | Weight: 84kg | Age: 27 | College: Penoc State University | Professional: Bralin Accipiters (2012.1-)


As a player who has moved around a bit, Pam has made the constant move from Mando teams to Mando teams to Mando teams. This continues to solidify his role as a quick runner with massive hands which make catching a silverbass look like picking up an ajai fruit. However, why he made it to the reserves of the Boarcupine no one can quite understand. Perhaps it is just a coincidence... perhaps it is to help develop the 24-years-old front two lines...

#14 - Bai'a ORTON
Height: 190cm | Weight: 90kg | Age: 25 | College:
Saigon City College | Professional: Outer Ring Riders


What does one expect from a man who has been out of college for two years and has already played for three teams? Nothing special here...

Height: 192cm | Weight: 114kg | Age: 28 | College: University of Kibago | Professional: Itakawai Beroyas


The number one draft pick of 2020.3, Fells is still playing for the same team that drafted him. A classic tightend, who simply knows his job and gets it done without any questions.

#81 - OIR'ASOR Dante
Height: 193cm| Weight: 113kg | Age: 27 | College:
University of Adirolf | Professional: Rev'ned Stallions


Very similar to his first-line counterpart, Oir’asor is another classic tightend. He gets the job done each and every time, though, you can expect a few slips in his reading ability from time to time. Luckily, he has experience --- both professional and collegiate --- with Wobet, so the two are able to interact very well.

#78 - Hakoda KUNAYAK
Height: 198cm | Weight: 142kg | Age: 25 | College: Roku University | Professional: Kyrimorut Troopers
**Note: Plays as Left Tackle**


Kunayak is a strong left tackle, who while at RU developed wonderfully in their run-first system. Drafted in the first round of the 2020.2 draft, he soon found himself in more of pass-protection role at Kyrimorut. Even with the Boarcupines, he is finding his niche; however, he is not finding it fast-enough. So, as always, rotation will see him swapped around with Clark when we see Notwen take the helm.

#75 - Sir'ch CLARK
Height: 196cm | Weight: 139kg | Age: 26 | College: Royal Earth University | Professional: Kamino Cloners
**Note: Plays as Left Tackle**


Another solid left tackle on the Boarcupines offensive line. Clark is equally as great as Kunayak, though, he is slightly more adapted to the Spread Offence utilised by the team. Expect to see him rotated around with Kunayak whenever Wobet is at the head.

#67 – Ma’jau QIPA’LO
Height: 194cm | Weight: 140 kg | Age: 22 | College: University of Adirolf | Professional: Rev'ned Stallions
**Note: Plays as Left Tackle**


A young gun fresh from a championship season with the Gators, Qipa’los is as adept at running with the Spread as any of the left tackles on the team. However, while his knowledge is incomparable, his experience is lacking, which is why Re'yem has him in the third slot. With time, he will be magnificent, but for now, he is just good.

#68 - Beane ZALES
Height: 193cm | Weight: 138kg| Age: 25 | College: Penoc State University | Professional: Itakawai Beroyas
**Note: Plays as Left Guard**


Zales is a ferocious blocker, which is great, considering how important guards are in stalling the defence to allow the time needed for the Spread to work.
Rating: A+ - Team Relationship: A - Morale: A - Form: A


# 73- Kalin KUPER
Height: 193cm | Weight: 137kg | Age: 29 | College: Northern University | Professional: Rev'ned Stallions
**Note: Plays as Left Guard**


A fierce competitor, honed by several high-value contest at Northern University and at Rev'ned, Kuper is not to be underestimated. The most experience left guard on the team, Kuper imparts his time-earned wisdom to the younger men on the line. He is not the best at the position, though, his experience does outrank his lack of form.

#65 - Kiya MIR’IM
Height: 190cm | Weight: 143kg | Age: 29| College: University of Adirolf | Professional: Kamino Cloners
**Note: Plays as Centre**


After serving four years with the Grand Army of the Republic, Mir’im has become an impressive presence on the field. A massive man, who has maintained his form and shape since graduating from Adirolf, he was drafted by the Cloners and has since developed into one hell of a steady hand for the offence there. He plays with the same mentality as many guards; this equates to one fine blocker who tends to enjoy taking tackles head-on.

#50 - MONGOYAK Tiquuvit
Height: 190cm | Weight: 138kg | Age: 24 | College: Hatsu State University | Professional: Kyrimoruty Troopers
**Note: Plays as Centre**


Another very capable blocker for the Boarcupines, Mongoyak brings youth to support the experience of Mir’im. Another massive man on the line who enjoys hitting people just a little too much.
Rating: B - Team Relationship: A - Morale: B - Form: B


#71 - Russ HOCHSTEIN
Height: 193cm | Weight: 138kg | Age: 36 | College: Saigon City College | Professional:, Hitomori Hawks
**Note: Plays as Right Guard**


The veteran of the Boarcupines, Hochstein has still managed to keep a foot on his younger competition. Still a very capable and aggressive guard, Hochstein still resembles his prime when he helped lead three teams to championship seasons; Itakawai in 2018.4, Rev’ned in 2019.2, and Hitomori in 2020.1 Though he is getting a little long in the tooth, he is still a terrifying man to face on the field.
Rating: A - Team Relationship: A - Morale: B - Form: A


#74 - NOONGWOOK Kai
Height: 200cm | Weight: 150kg | Age: 24 | College: University of Imaim | Professional: Itakawai Beroyas
**Note: Plays as Right Tackle**


Noongwook is a right tackle who is as good at pass protection as he is at run blocking. He garnishes the favour of Re'yem due to his love of playing and the love of doing his job well. Extremely devoted to the team, he was ejected from a college game when the opposition gave an illegal hit to his quaterback... and Noongwook felt it best to take off his helmet and bash it upside the hitter when he got up. One of the ASCA's best remembered games.

#76 – Yi’no HILLS
Height: 196cm | Weight: 139kg | Age: 27 | College: University of the Southern Tribes | Professional: Braslin Accipiters
**Note: Plays as Right Tackle**


Hills is a solid all-around player, but is not at the same level of talent as his compatriots. He fills in when needed, and is known from time to time to deliver a terrific performance, however, do not expect to see him outperform Noongwook, and Hills will remain in the second line of the right tackle position.

#72 - Nayr RISHAR
Height: 196cm | Weight: 136kg | Age: 26 | College: University of Omashu | Professional: Rev'ned Stallions
**Note: Plays as Right Tackle:**


A younger player who has seen much growth since his days at Omashu, Rishar is a very strong and big tackle, though he just lacks the talent of Noongwook or Hills. He fills in the thrid spot well, and expect to see him play every other game or so, or even when Noongwook needs rest mid-game.
Rating: B- - Team Relationship: B - Morale: C+ - Form: C+




Defence

Style: -1.0 out of -5.0
Primary Front: 4-3 defence
Overview: This defence is designed with a blitz-heavy approach in mind. While it is filled with many great talents, it is not the best aspect of the Boarcupines, and many see the Baptism of Iron as a means to test the men on the line. The secondary is comprised of the best players in the league, and as such, is an integral part of the team.

#96 - REIN’UN Ch’tim
Height: 193cm | Weight: 132kg | Age: 24 | College: University of Adiolf | Professional: Rev’ned Stallions
**Note: Plays as Right Tackle**


Slightly smaller than Leybunk on the left, Rein’un is the best defensive lineman playing for the Boarcupines. With his professional years spent running the 4-3, not to mention his entire college career under the same front, Rein’un knows what he is doing, and he does it very well. While he is no speed-demon, he is quick enough on his feet so as to pose a threat to inside-rushers, and he has more than once laid out a quarterback who underestimated him.
Rating: A - Team Relationship: A - Morale: B - Form: A


#77 - LEYBUNK Ri’bro
Height: 188cm | Weight: 139kg | Age: 28 | College: Adirolf State University | Professional: Enceri Jets
**Note: Plays as Left Tackle**


A terrific nose for passers and ball-carriers, Leybunk is a very capable tackle who fills the role of a run-stopper for the Boarcupines. With decent explosiveness off the line and having a knack for mucking the offensive line up just enough to stop any progress, Leybunk brings experience and charisma to any team he is on.
Rating: A - Team Relationship: A - Morale: A - Form: A


#98 - NAY’R Nemac
Height: 196cm | Weight: 138kg | Age: 27 | College: HAtsu State University | Professional: Taishen Tigers (2010.2-2011.3)
**Note: Plays as Left Tackle**


Nay’r is very efficient as a tackle, able to read the offence from the other side and know exactly who it is he needs to block and stall. Not really that terrific of a player, though his form is impeccable; likely the result of his collegiate days under a head coach who would drill the basics for hours...
Rating: B - Team Relationship: B - Morale: B - Form: A


#79 - MASTHO Cusmar
Height: 190cm | Weight: 143kg | Age: 26 | College: University of Adirolf | Professional: Kyrimorut Troopers
**Note: Plays as Right Tackle**


An explosive tackle, Mastho is someone who can cause serious damage on the inside. Though his form needs work, he is under the tutelage of his college coach, and as such, we can be sure to see him improve with time.
Rating: B - Team Relationship: A - Morale: B - Form: C


#91 - SREYA Ro’er
Height: 190cm | Weight: 124kg | Age: 26 | College: Royal Earth University | Professional: Rev’ned Stallions
**Note: Plays as Right Defensive End**


A sharp contrast to the quiet and polite Vilmerud, Sreya Ro’er is a stereotypical Mando; boisterous, energetic and amazingly intelligent. Known for constantly shuffling about prior to the snap, Sreya serves as a huge distraction on the line, drawing attention to himself and away from the play. Usually works pretty well, considering the amount of mando’a profanities he shouts.
Rating: A - Team Relationship: A - Morale: A - Form: A


#92 - VILMERUD Vis’el
Height: 198 cm | Weight: 110kg | Age: 25 | College: Ba Sing Se State University | Professional: Enceri Jets
**Note: Plays as Left Defensive End**


Vilmerud is the star player of the defensive line. Incredibly fast and stong, with the ability to make idiots out of most of his offensive counterparts, Vilmerud is as flexible as player as they come. With an impressive work ethic and the manners of a reform school graduate, Vilmerud is a bag of contradictions compared to his first-line counterpart, Sreya Ro’er.
Rating: A+ - Team Relationship: A+ - Morale: A+ - Form: A


#90 - TERHUN Son’ja
Height: 193cm | Weight: 122kg | Age: 28| College: University of Omashu | Professional: Lolosi Camelephants
**Note: Plays as Right Defensive End**


Siliga’s partner on the end, Terhun is a good player, even though he is still in need of work. Whereas Siliga has only played professionally for two years, it has been five years since Terhun was at UO, and they both are on par for development. It may be sometime until Terhan finds himself on the first line, but until then, he seems perfectly content playing second fiddle.
Rating: B - Team Relationship: A - Morale: B - Form: B


#95 – Ver’leas SILIGA
Height: 196cm | Weight: 122kg | Age: 25 | College: University of Adirolf | Professional: Republic Guardians (2011.4)
**Note: Plays as Left Defensive End**


Siliga is a solid, all-around defensive end who can play the run and pass solidly. At 25 years-of-age, he is still developing, so expecting a good deal of playing time is not likely. However, he is talented, so you can expect him to show when the time comes...
Rating: B - Team Relationship: B - Morale: B - Form: B


#97 – Rem’jay LAEB
Height: 190cm | Weight: 125kg | Age: 24 | College: University of the Southern Tribes | Professional: Hitomori Hawks


Playing at both left and right defensive ends, Laeb has learned a great deal in his professional career. While still a pass-rusher first, his run-stopping skills have greatly improved since his debut in 2011 for Hitomori.
Rating: C+ - Team Relationship: B - Morale: C - Form: A+


#58 - RELLIM Von
Height: 190cm | Weight: 109kg | Age: 22 | College: Saigon City College | Professional: Taishen Tigers
**Note: Plays as Left Linebacker**


Recruited straight out of SCC, Rellim distinguished himself in college as someone who should never be underestimated. He is most suited for attacking, moving forward to stop the run or contribute to the pass-rush, as opposed to working in coverage. That is why Ganhan is on the team...
Rating: A - Team Relationship: A - Morale: A - Form: B


#55 – Rilc’e AMSILLI
Height: 184cm | Weight: 110kg | Age: 29 | College: University of Imaim | Professional: Enceri Jets
**Note: Plays as Right Linebacker**


Following a three season hiatus in which he volunteered to aid the southern regions following the Concordian dissent, Amsilli returned to Enceri a renewed man. He can blitz harder than any man on the line, considering his size when compared to the other monsters who make up the defensive line. He contributes greatly to the pass-rush, and is able to cover short-routes during zone defence.
Rating: A - Team Relationship: A - Morale: A - Form: A


#52 - OBIOZOR Ril
Height: 193cm | Weight: 113kg | Age: 25 | College: Hatsu State University | Professional: Futoshi Saints
**Note: Plays as Right Linebacker**


Having played for three teams, Obiozor has some very interesting knowledge to contribute to the linebackers. He is highly intelligent, and even graduated from Hastu State with a 3.98 GPA and a degree in Particle Sciences. Surprising he chose to play get’shuk instead of winning a Noble Prize...
Rating: B+ - Team Relationship: A - Morale: B - Form: B


#57 - GANHAN Ri’om
Height: 190cm | Weight: 124kg | Age: 32 | College: University of Omashu| Professional: Hitomori Hawks
**Note: Plays as Left Linebacker**


Having two championship rings in his possession from his years in Kamino, Ganhan is still at the peak of his form. With his main strength in guarding the middle, he is still quite capable of carrying out other responsibilities, such as pass rushing and stopping the run with equal efficiency.
Rating: B+ - Team Relationship: A - Morale: C - Form: A


#59 - IWUH Nair
Height: 182cm | Weight: 108kg | Age: 27 | College: Keldabe State University | Professional: Itakawai Beroyas
**Note: Plays as Right Linebacker**


Another player whose development continues to this day, Iwuh would have found himself higher in the depth chart had he not had to compete against the likes of Amsilli and Obiozor. He does everything that the two players above him can do just as well, but his speed and knowledge of the game still need to improve before he can place higher.
Rating: B- - Team Relationship: B - Morale: C - Form: B


#53 - MEDMOHA Keim
Height: 190cm | Weight: 111kg | Age: 23 | College: University of Adirolf | Professional: Rev’ned Stallions
**Note: Plays as Left Linebacker**


Drafted right after the completion of his college season, Medmoha found a home in Rev’ned under his former coach, which is perhaps how he found his way into the National team. He is an average linebacker, nothing fancy or stand-outish about him.

#51 - SYAM Eoj’ka
Height: 180cm | Weight: 113kg | Age: 26 | College: University of Omashu | Professional: Taishen Tigers


Syam is a beast of a player; unimaginably strong, incredibly intelligent, and quick on the draw. Still developing as a player, Syam is solid in all of the physical categories of a player, yet it is simply his intelligence which sets him miles apart from his teammates.

#56 – Tean INGIRV
Height: 184cm | Weight: 109kg | Age: 23 | College: University of Adirolf | Professional: Itakawai Beroyas


A very capable inside linebacker, Ingirv’s main strength is in covering the middle, however, he is still very capable of pass rushing as well as stopping the run.

#24 - LEYIAB Cyr’oDEFENSIVE CAPTAIN
Height: 182cm | Weight: 88kg | Age: 33 | College: University of Adirolf | Professional: Hitomori Hawks
**Note: Plays as Left Cornerback**


The most experienced play-making corner available in Gyatso-kai, Ley’iab has the distinction of playing for just a single team in his ten year professional career: Whereas most players end up spending five to six years with a team, Ley’iab beats the odds. Even though he is high in age, he is very fast and has an instinctive knack for placing himself between the airborne ball and the intended receiver. His talent and experience makes him the ranking NCO of the Defence Corps, which many see him as more of a general than as a NCO.
Rating: A - Team Relationship: A - Morale: A - Form: A


#21 - MADOOGN Rean
Height: 178cm | Weight: 87kg | Age: 33 | College: Keldabe State University | Professional: Kamino Cloners
**Note: Plays as Right Cornerback**


Another seasoned cornerback, Madoogn comes out of Adirolf’s biggest rival at Keldabe State and, given his age, he played plenty of games opposite of Leyiab. As such, he knows his partner’s style very well and the two cornerbacks complement each other vividly.
Rating: A - Team Relationship: B - Morale: A - Form: A


#25 - RISHA Ris’ch
Height: 177cm | Weight: 86kg | Age: 22 | College: Penoc State University | Professional: Braslin Accipiters
**Note: Plays as Left Cornerback**


The youngest member of the cornerbacks, Risha graduated from Penoc State a semester early so as to qualify for the 2020.3 RGL Draft; finding his home in Braslin in the second round. Risha differs than the first-line cornerbacks in that he is more speed-geared, placing himself easily between the ball and the receiver. While he is not very consistent in getting the interception, he is consistent in keeping the opponent from gaining the first down.
Rating: B - Team Relationship: A - Morale: B - Form: B


#29 - REMOO Shuajo
Height: 178cm | Weight: 84kg | Age: 23 | College: Hatsu State University | Professional: Kamino Cloners
**Note: Plays as Right Cornerback**


Much like Risha, Remoo is a young freshly-drafted player. Not having played in the professional scene long enough to make any big differences in the games he has played. Even faster than Risha, Remoo can keep pace with the fastest and most agile of receivers and this plays well into the hands of the Boarcupines. Expect to see Remoo come out whenever the defence needs a speed boost.

#32 - TERCAR Onty
Height: 175cm | Weight: 79kg | Age: 25 | College: Adirolf State University | Professional: Kamino Cloners
**Note: Plays as Right Cornerback**


A second-line corner back on the Kamino Cloners behind first-string Remoo Shuajo, Tercar is just another solid corner in the line of the Boarcupines. He does a very good job in the secondary, even though he is fairly unremarkable.
Rating: B- - Team Relationship: B - Morale: C - Form: B


#22 - SYD’QUAN
Height: 175cm | Weight: 86kg | Age: 25 | College: Royal Earth University | Professional: Itakawai Beroyas


A mostly speed-based corner, Syd’Quan is not as physical as his compatriots. Due to his flexibility, he is not listed as a left or a right corner back, and he will often fill the void left by fatigue regardless of what side of the field he is running.
Rating: B - Team Relationship: C - Morale: B - Form: A


#30 - Vid'da TONBRU
Height: 188cm | Weight: 98kg | Age: 24 | College: University of Adirolf | Professional: Rev'ned Stallions
**Note: Plays as Strong Safety**


Coming from the Gators two championships teams, Tonbru is an exceptional player. As exceptional as he is, he is still one of the most under-rated safeties of the RGL. This is due to the fact that he is on one of the most prolific teams in the National Conference. Tonbru excels at coverage, but working on the fly has improved his contributions to the team, and he makes for a solid last-ditch tackle against a lose running back.

#28 - TERRAC Tonqui
Height: 184cm | Weight: 90kg | Age: 23 | College: Royal Earth University | Professional: Itakawai Beroyas
**Note: Plays as Free Safety**


Drafted in the fifth round of the 2020.2 RGL Draft, Terrac comes out of one of the premier educational establishments in Gyatso-kai; earning a 3.88 GPA and a degree in Philosophy, Terrac chose to pursue his sports passion. A solid all-around safety who is at his best when playing a responsibility. Terrac is able to shut down receivers and/or entire sections of the field with the utmost in competence, leaving his backfield partner --- Tonbru --- free to make the big plays.

Signed to the Braslin Accipiters without even being drafted, Re’om is a remarkable player. However, he is still too young to be able to play consistently, though his form is well defined.

#20 - KINSDAW Nai’r
Height: 182cm | Weight: 95kg | Age: 38| College: Saigon City College |
Professional: Beijing Ironclaws

**Note: Plays as Strong Safety**


The ‘old wolf’ on the line, brought in as an elder to educate the younger members of the defence. He is still a great player, though to aid the youth in development, Kinsdaw has taken a place on the third line. Quite a difference when compared to his ‘Golden Years’ with the Enceri Jets; winning four championships in five years in the early 2000s

#66 - TONPAX Nielo – SPECIAL TEAMS CAPTAIN
Height: 188cm | Weight: 122kg | Age: 34 | College: Northern University | Professional: Republic Guardians


The back-up long snapper, who was signed to the Guardians fresh out of college and undrafted. Since then, he joined the Guardians on two Supreme Bowl championships and then has helped the Stallions pull into contention before being traded back to the Guardians in 2020.1. Not much else to say... Accurate and consistent. Only second due to his age.

The most accurate kicker in the Republic Gaat'shuk League, Prater manages to make nearly 85% of his field goals from 45 yards or more. He has an impressive leg, which is in no doubt due to his time playing summer meshgeroya in a professional league. The coaches never mind, just so long as he doesn't let it interfere with his RGL duties.

An impressive punter who averages 46.2 yards a kick, Quittcol has been a player with some controversy around him since he first stepped onto a field; dealing with spousal issues when first drafted out of UO, and then his off-the-field antics which left many wondering if Quittcol would mature. It took a late-season trade from Imami to the more-structured Troopers of Kyrimorut for the ‘Untamed Beast of the Waterways’ to finally find his place.

Team Cassadaigua- World Bowl 45

Cassadaigua is a three-time World Bowl Champion, having won it in the 8th, 22nd, and 40th editions. However, the nation has not participated in the competition since World Bowl 41, due to the edict of the Queen Cassie II. It has been eight in-character years, and there are very few (but some) returnees from that team. The coaching staff then was all getting up there in age, so that has seen full turnover.

Another thing to note is that while Cassadagan teams in other sports are notoriously all-female, the football team has always been mixed gender with men placed on the line of scrimmage. The team uses traditional or mostly traditional numbering of players by position as OOCly the user is not a fan of linebackers wearing #3, etc.

Offensively, the team is not going to do anything all that crazy. Brittany Carrington is more of a pocket passer than a scrambler, but she will take off for an occasional run. Ideally, the team will be looking for a 50/50 split with passes and rushing attempts, but in reality, about 60% of the plays will be passing plays. Naturally, game situations will determine this. Four or even five receiver sets will be employed every now and then, but with the team likely an underdog in most games, trick plays will be scarce, at best.

Kohnhead presents the KNGT (Kohnhead National Gridiron Team) for the World Bowl XLI

Full Nation Name: The Galactic Empire of Kohnhead
Short Nation Name: Kohnhead
Trigramme: KHD
Team Nickname: The Brains
Colors: Red, White, and Blue
Record: 28-31
Appearance Number: 7
Best Result: Quarterfinals (World Bowl XLII)
Ranking: 12th

Team Info: It took four attempts for Kohnhead to finally make it past the Group Stage with Eric Dietrich at the helm for the first time. Longtime starter Jackson Watford went down early and the young Byron Joseph came in and made an immediate difference leading us all the way to the quarterfinals. The past two years have seen a bit of regression with a combined 10-10 record across the two and just a Round of 16 loss to Banija in terms of the postseason. The seat is not hot for Eric Dietrich but it's not quite as cold as it once was especially with the end of his contract looming in the not too distant future.

Coaching Staff:
Head Coach: Eric Dietrich, 47 years old (Ranoria)
The college football world was thrown into chaos four seasons ago when Eric Deitrich supposedly the heir apparent to head coach of the Richardson University team and leader of for what was a long time one of the best defenses in college football was fired after a horrible season. Kohnhead City putting up 51 points on a hapless Richardson defense was the final straw and Dietrich was unceremoniously released following that week 7 game. However this is a man with a long history of success who many expected to find a job quickly in the college world as a defensive coordinator for another school or maybe even a head coach for a lower level program. Instead Dietrich received no offers until the Kohnhead National Gridiron Team came calling offering him a massive five year deal to take over from Walker Sparks as our Head Coach with a large say in the roster and playcalling duties on the defensive side. All he did in his first WB at the helm was take us to the playoffs for the first time in our nation's history and then upset Squidroidia in the Round of 16. As mentioned previously, the past two years we've struggled a bit but many believe that Dietrich is the perfect man to take Kohnhead and put us in the elite tier of World Bowl teams and out of the mediocrity that we are currently stuck in.

Offensive Coordinator: Richie Bell, 42 years old
Richie Bell was the running backs coach at Kohnhead City University for their first two seasons in the NSCF where he helped turn Herman Whitworth into a superstar and has helped develop Chromatik Rowena Hastroff. It was an unexpected move when the team hired him to become the offensive coordinator with many claiming that this meant we would be focusing on the running game. No, Bell's biggeset strength is his versatility as he can scheme up a run heavy offense but he can also work with the quarterbacks and work on their passing skills. Given Deitrich's skills fall on the defensive side of things Bell will have an even more important job as he will be calling the plays offensively and will be top of the line in that regard.

Defensive Coordinator: Tim Shaw, 41 years old (Ranoria)
Tim Shaw was the Defensive Backs Coach at Richardson three seasons ago and while he was not let go like our new Head Coach he followed Dietrich to Kohnhead with an opportunity to become our defensive coordinator. Shaw is an up and coming coach and while it is a risk Kohnhead is banking on his chemistry with Dietrich as a big reason for defensive improvement.

Special Teams Coordinator: Tim Murphy, 55 years old
Murphy is the special teams coordinator, and kicking has always been a strength for the team. Special teams coverage is sometimes lacking but Murphy has improved the coverage immensely. The team is also good at returns and returners will constantly get near the 30 yard line on kickoff returns. Murphy was the only coordinator to return to the team following World Bowl XLI.

QBs Coach: Lindsey Walters, 42 years old
RBs Coach: Bart Jurytion, 51 years old
WRs Coach: Martha McTurner, 54 years old
TEs Coach: Marie Arthur, 68 years old
OL Coach: Jordan Detter, 60 years old

DL Coach: Margaret Harris, 64 years old
LB Coach: Thomas Harrington, 44 years old
DB Coach: Michael Reeds, 45 years old



Offensive Starters
(C) QB #1 Byron Joseph, 25 years old (Highport Hawks - Ranoria)
After a neck injury to the inconsistent Jackson Watford forced Byron Joseph into the action everything changed as Joseph was on fire before eventually cooling off although he still managed to lead us to the quarters. At only 24 years with a multitude of experience in big games whether it be playoff games in the RFL, playoff games in the World Bowl, or playoff games in the NSCF Joseph appears destined to have an amazing career. In Ranoria we've seen him go from a quarterback dependent on his legs to one who still is as dangerous as ever on the ground but has the arm talent up there although nowhere near the level of quarterbacks with elite arm strength. Joseph continues to prove he can do it under the brightlest lights having led the Highport Hawks to a championship in the RFL and is widely regarded as one of the top quarterbacks in Ranoria.

RB: #24 Herman Whitworth, 23 years old (Highport Hawks - Ranoria)
While Georgette Butler was the starter for Kohnhead's first two World Bowls, she was relegated to the bench for the third one as Kaitlan Deacon took take over as our starter. However following another dominant season at Kohnhead City University, Herman Whitworth was named the starting running back at the World Bowl and had his former RB Coach Richie Shaw calling the plays offensively. Whitworth is a bowling ball who you cannot hope to tackle but needs to improve in the pass catching game if he really wants to be a special player. His pass protection skills are already there and his biggest question mark has got to be his extensive injury history combined with his physical style of play which could limit him throughout the World Bowl. Whitworth joined Joseph in Highport and in their first season together all they did was go out and win the championship but he's coming off a season where he wasn't 100% with a hamstring injury which is a more than worrying sign for an injury prone running back.

WR: #17 Marco Polisson, 26 years old
Polisson is very young but has already proven he can be The Brains number one wide receiver. Polisson has the physical tools you look for in a WR 1 as he has an ability to go and get jump balls but also has a lot of speed and great RAC ability. Watford and Polisson have a good connection so it will be interesting to see what happens if Watford does not keep his starting spot. Polisson has a massive ego and wants the ball, something that they will have to work on. He's young and can be the premier receiver on the team for a long time and is a classic boundary receiver who can also be a target in the end zone.

WR: #6 William Carey, 23 years old (Ranoria City Falcons - Ranoria)
Carey was the #1 receiver for a very talented Swisston City receiving corps and offense as a whole. Carey possesses speed and can be a deep threat although he is by no means a burner. His best talents come with his route running but he is a perimeter receiver despite his small frame at 6' 0 and 174 pounds. Many still question his weight but Carey says he will dismiss those concerns and that it has yet to ever effect him. Carey was an instant upgrade at receiver over Albie Terry who will once again be on the bench. Carey was the first pick in the second round of a stacked 2029 RFL Draft Class and just two seasons into his career he also won a Championship and was a key part in the process.

WR: #15 Ezekial Edwards, 25 years old
Ezekial Edwards excelled in his two seasons in the NSCF for Kohnhead City operating out of the slot and now gets a chance to start for the National Team given our lack of skill at the position. Edwards missed World Bowl XLI after electing for offseason surgery in preparation for the NSCF season otherwise he might have been starting then. Edwards has chemistry with Byron Joseph and his biggest strength is his consistency with catching and almost always getting separation when running his routes. He's not the most explosive with the ball in his hands but when you need that first down he will come up with it.

TE: #86 Zachary Lewis, 22 years old (Aissa Crocodiles - Banija)
With his collegiate career now over, tight end Zachary Lewis joins the Brains at a much needed position taking over for the now retired Billy James. Lewis was a monster in his four years at NMU as part of the initial group of Kohnheadian recruits who went abroad and now are all on the World Bowl team. Lewis will rack up targets and is yet another target for Byron Joseph in this explosive Kohnheadian offense. He has decided that he would like to continue his journey professionally in Banija and it will be interesting to see how that ends up.

LT: #75 Peyton Whiteley, 25 years old
Peyton Whitely was the anchor of a good Kohnhead City protection a few seasons ago and now take over on either QB's blindside. She was the third blindside tackle in three years however hopefully the musical chairs appear to have stopped with Whitely who is a beast now and for the future. She has the right size and strength but Danielle Raynor is still there on the bench if she struggles with the weight of expectations placed on her. Whitely should be a staple for years to come of the offensive line.

LG: #73 Mildred Plumbing, 30 years old
Plumbing has been known as someone who was good at run blocking but struggled when it came to pass protection. She used to be a tackle but due to her size and struggles in pass protection she was moved inside where she has done a lot better and sort of hidden her weakness. Jordan Detter and Worthing have worked tirelessly to make her into a very good guard and I expect her to take the next step forward especially when Plumbing retires.

C: #62 Jonathon Jodan, 28 years old
Jodan is undersized for a center yet he has enough strength to hold his own in pass protection and is pretty good in run blocking. Jodan's biggest strength is his knowledge of the game and he is able to read what the defense is doing pre-snap and communicate it with the guy under center as well as the rest of the offensive line. He has a very good personality and is loved in the locker room by literally everyone.

RG: #79 Micheal Carter, 33 years old
Carter is the weak spot on the O-Line as he struggles in both pass protection and run blocking, has poor speed and athletiscsim, a low football IQ, poor technique, but the one bright spot is his size and strength. Unfortunately size and strength can only get you so far and he is known to give up pressures way too easily. He needs to be replaced sooner rather than later but as of right now there is no one capable enough to replace him.

(C) RT: #65 Bethany Crooks, 26 years old
Crooks was the tackle a couple of years ago at Kohnhead City before they were part of the NSCF and was completely dominant. This will be her sixth straight World Bowl starting despite her age. The plan at one point was to kick her over to the left side but she has stated she prefers the right side and does not want to undergo a transition. Despite being somewhat of a weak spot in World Bowl 39 she has developed into a complete strength and is a beast. The team has so much faith and trust in Crooks that they have even named her a captain despite her age because she has been starting for so long and has all the leadership traits and capabilities you look for.



Defensive Starters
RE: #98 Robert Lawrence, 22 years old (Highport Hawks - Ranoria)
Lawrence was a bit underrated coming out of High School and while KCU scooped him up, the expectations weren't that high. Lawrence however absolutely dominated during his collegiate year starting in his sophmore year when he first teamed up with Devin River. His position in this scheme is a bit different from what he played in college but Lawrence should have no problems.

DT: #97 Albie Snow, 23 years old
A former four year starter at KCU, Albie Snow has finally earned his spot as the starter over Firth and will add a lot to this team as the run-stuffer nose tackle who when asked to can also rush the passer. Snow will probably be heavily rotated along with the entirety of the defensive line but he is indeed the starter.

LE: #92 Josef Travis, 27 years old
After a good senior season for Kohnhead City University, Josef Travis took over as the left end and eased some of the pressure off of Espinosa who draws lots of double teams. Travis will also look to generate more pressure from this left end position than before although some think he'd be better suited at the EDGE position in place of Spears. It's possible that at World Bowl 44 he takes over in that position which would allow his pure pass rushing skillset to do wonders.

Right EDGE: #90 Levi Espinosa, 32 years old
Espinosa is the best pass rusher on the team. He also will sometimes (rarely) drop back into coverage, although he is not the best at doing that. Espinosa is a power rusher with great technique and a variety of power and finesse moves in his arsenal that he uses to get around offensive lineman. Espinosa is by far the best player on the defense and he anchors the pass rush, and run defense. He is 31 and is nearing the end of his prime.

(C) Left EDGE: #95 Rayyan Spears, 37 years old
On the opposite side of Espinosa sits Spears. Spears is lucky because all of the attention is on Espinosa so she can really thrive on the left side rushing the passer. She also drops off into coverage more frequently than Espinosa and is better at it although not by much. Spears is a good second edge rusher to have, but I doubt she could step up into that premier rusher role if Espinosa goes down. Spears' job could be in doubt especially if Travis is moved to the Edge position as may have thought he should be moved there. Spears has dealth with injuries in recent years but he says he's healthy and ready.

(C) MLB: #53 Phillip Haney, 26 years old
Haney is the young signal caller for the defense. He has very high potential and is already quite good. He is good at tackling and is very good in coverage although his speed at 4.6 is slower than what you want for the position. Haney is expected to step up as a leader in future years, and already is one. Although he is not one of two defensive captains, he get's the captain's patch because he's the captain on special teams with regular contributions on coverage.

MLB #49 Marcus Sandoval, 22 years old (Busukuma Suns - Banija)
At one point he was the #1 recruit in the country. He certainly lived up to the billing after committing to the prestigious University of Loyola-Istria in Banija and was a dominant force at linebacker and capped off his career by being named captain. He's a tackling machine with good speed who will stack it up in the stat sheet while also showing very good coverage instincts. Sandoval as the starter was always a question of when rather than if and he will now get his shot.

CB #24 Percy Whitehead, 35 years old
Whitehead is a big play machine and is the number one corner on the team. Whitehead is very aggressive as a corner back and will often get beat on simple double moves because of his ball hawk tendencies, but on the bright side he often comes up with key interceptions when you need it most. I would rather have a better number one corner but Whitehead is the guy you can count on to come up with a key interception if he's not getting roasted 10 yards behind his person because of a double move. Whitehead is also a good tackler which is important in stopping short passes from turning into big gains. Whitehead will shadow opposing teams best receivers all over the field because the defense plays man defense most of the time.

CB #30 Anne Boyer, 25 years old
Anne Boyer was given the number two corner spot and even though she had a down final season for Kohnhead City and many thought this spot should have gone to Zion Irving. Boyer however won this spot out in camp and should bring needed stability to the other side of the field. Boyer is a bit oversized for the position and thus lacks something in the speed department but has good reactions and instincts and is good in the mental department.

FS #23 Shane Holman, 31 years old
Holman is the deep center field safety who tries to limit the opposing team's big plays, and he's pretty good at it too. This allows Whitehead to play more aggressive as he knows Holman will usually be able to back him up if he gets roasted. Holman is a top three player on the defense and he knows it as he plays with poise and confidence.

(C) SS #27 Chris Molina, 39 years old
Molina is the guy you want on your team no matter what. Molina will play ever defensive snap of every game, and can play anywhere on the field. He can line up at linebacker, slot corner, outside corner, safety, or wherever you need him to be. Molina is a great leader on and off the field and someone teammates look up to. Despite being 389and with skills diminishing he's still an invaluable member of the team. I cannot say enough good things about him and neither can his teammates. The question continues to be after every World Bowl is this Molina's last and early indications say the 39 year old is planning retirement after this 45th World Bowl which is exactly what we thought last year and yet here he is again.



Offense
QB: #11 Jackson Watford, 30 years old
QB #7 Diego Rodriguez, 23 years old (Dietrich Dynamos - Ranoria)
Watford the former starter has been relegated to the bench in a move he apparently had lots and lots of problems with, it's quite possible Rodriguez serves as the top backup after showing his worth in three seasons with Swisston. Rodriguez was a 4th round draft pick in the RFL and still has high upside.

RB: #27 Elliot Roach, 22 years old (NA Dreadnaughts - Ranoria)
RB #26 Kaitlan Deacon, 24 years old
RB: #25 Georgette Butler, 33 years old
Georgette Butler will serve as the third down back given her abilities as a pass catcher outside of the backfield and she has that experience in big games if Deacon struggles considering she was the starter at the first two World Bowls. Deacon and Roach will be more power backs off the bench and Roach is expected to receive a large dosage alongside Herman Whitworth to relieve him of some of his extensive workload. Roach absolutely dominated the last three years for Richardson and was a top 10 pick in the RFL draft.

WR: #10 Kenneth Bradson, 38 years old
WR: #18 Albie Terry, 25 years old
WR: #13 Maggie Brown, 33 years old
Bradson is a deep threat who started the first two World Bowls but cannot stay healthy and is nothing like what he used to be, Terry is a perimeter receiver with decent upside and Brown started the first three World Bowls but is now just a decent backup for the slot.

TE #88 Tom Crouch, 34 years old
TE #83 Benny Devlin, 23 years old
TE #81 Evelyn Lang, 37 years old
While Crouch and Lang mainly serve as blocking tight ends who don't provide too much in the passing game (Crouch provides more), Devlin is more of the modern tight end but has been working on his blocking. The four tight ends on the roster are due to Kohnhead running a lot of 12 or even 13 personnel so they will all see the field. Lang has indicated she plans on retiring after this World Bowl.

OT #77 Nicholas Love, 27 years old
OT #71 Danielle Raynor, 22 years old
OG #68 Adrienne Gross, 36 years old
G/C #78 Kylo Friedman, 30 years old
Nicholas Love has been sent back to the bench where he will remain as a backup swing tackle, a very valuable piece to any roster. While he definitely has upside the two tackles ahead of him are just plainly better and he will probably stay as a backup for most of his career on the World Bowl team. Gross and Friedman really all don't have any upside with the former being 34 years of age and are mainly here for depth purposes. Danielle Raynor was a four year starter at KCU but probably doesn't have a future as a starter unless she switches inside to guard which she may do.

Defense
RE: #96 Brittany Yater, 31 years old
DT #93 Jakub Brush, 25 years old
DT: #91 Ellenor Firth, 36 years old
EDGE #51 Fox Middleton, 25 years old
EDGE #94 Bella Snider, 35 years old
Our pass rushing depth should get a lot of playing time as we love to rotate and we have some former starters on here who will provide some juice off the bench in Yater and Firth. Brush and Middleton are both 24 and still have some upside although they don't possess National Team starter upside.

LB #47 Sid Carlson, 24 years old
LB #50 David Decker, 25 years old
MLB #58 Lyla Barrera, 29 years old
While our starters at the linebacker position with Haney and Barrera are potentially the strength of our defense the depth was to put it mildly complete garbage a few years ago. However we entirely revamped our backups with two star linebackers for Swisston City from NSCF 24 who all graduated becoming our two backups all of whom have tremoundous upside but a difficult path to playing time. However they pale in comparison to the resume of the newest addition to the depth chart in former ULI captain and defensive star Marcus Sandoval the #1 recruit out of Kohnhead a few years back. Sandoval will see playing time as the third linebacker and projects to be a starter in the next 2-3 years, he is also planning on playing professionally in Banija.

CB #21 Zion Irving, 25 years old
CB #29 Rachel Gordon, 23 years old
C/S #48 Katie Sawyer, 22 years old
S #37 Roman Jimenez, 27 years old
S #32 Sophia Molloy, 32 years old
In terms of the corner depth, Irving and Gordon were both #1 starters for their teams over in the NSCF with Irving being the best slot corner in college football two seasons ago. Last season he switched outside despite his size and was decent but showed a lot of potential. One of them is most likely going to supplant Whitehead in a few years. Katie Sawyer was a swiss army knife for the Felswyr State University defense the past few years and they just won the NSCF championship but she never quite reached her upside. Jimenez plays like a third safety when that's required and he's still relatively young while Molloy is a depth piece.



Special Teams
K #4 Wanda Parkinson, 28 years old
P #1 Susan Welsh, 35 years old
LS #45 Mira Ballard, 33 years old

KR: Kenneth Bradson
PR: Kenneth Bradson

As stated earlier Special Teams is a strength of ours especially with Parkinson improving her accuracy in recent years. Bradson is the returner just like he has been and maybe now he can contribute more as he's not a full time starter.

STADIUM: Weststock Horseshoe

A horseshoe stadium with a grass field, the Weststock Horseshoe has played host to many classic football games throughout South Americanastanian history. Situated in an area of South Americanastan with a particularly unstable climate, "mud bowls" are not uncommon here. The mecca of South Americanastanian football

COACHING STAFF

HEAD COACH: Jack Wall, Age 64

An infamously "old-school" coach, Jack Wall has been coaching for longer than most players have been alive. He has made a habit of deliberately shunning analytics and making decisions based on his own analysis, for better or worse. His defenses are almost always a pain in an offense's ass and his offenses are downright confusing to even some of the smartest pundits. But hey, if it ain't broke...

OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR: A.J. Hoyt, Age 53

Brought into spark an already-poor offense crippled by disputes over compensation to SAFL teams during tournaments, A.J. Hoyt is forced to do what he can with what he's got. What he's got is a 30-year coaching resume, the being one of the few to win a High School and College football championship as a coach. Not only does this tournament serve as an audition for his Crashbone concept, it serves as one for a potential coaching gig in the SAFL for Hoyt.

DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR: Greg Micheals, Age 49

Greg Micheals is an ex-Linebacker and a major advocate of a rough playstyle that frequently treads the line between what is legal and what is not. His defenses are tough, even if extremely vulnerable to the deep ball and RPOs. A controversial selection to the national team after being suspended by the SAFL due to a scandal regarding his encouraging of his players to "Make sure their stars go out and stay out of the game", he seeks to prove his rehabilitation with the World Bowl.

SPECIAL TEAMS COORDINATOR: Craig Wall, Age 36

Craig, son of Jack, is one of the SAFL's most energetic coordinators, and is a favorite among his players. Often identified by the sheer energy and excitement he displays on the sidelines, he is consistently a fan and player favorite. His playcalling is not to be doubted either, often making shrewd risks and heisting possessions and points from his opponents.

PHILOSOPHIES

OFFENSIVE SCHEME: CRASHBONE
Also known as "Slotback I", the Crashbone is a scheme focusing on punching the ball up the defense's gut with a powerful running game, while keeping them on their toes with deep shots down the field.

DEFENSIVE SCHEME: 4-2 BOXCUTTER
A 4-2 front with an extra 2 outside linebackers just outside the tackle box. Makes use of run-stopping safeties to crash down on runs forced towards the inside.

STYLE MOD: -0.90

ROSTER

OFFENSE

QUARTERBACK

Will Hart, Age 35
203 Lbs|6'2"|#4|THROWS RIGHT
A 12-year veteran of the SAFL, Will Hart is many things, but fearful isn't one of them. Not afraid to lower his shoulder and eat hits, or sling it down the field behind the safeties.

Mick Hassel, Age 22
194 Lbs|6'0"|#9|THROWS RIGHT

Dick Lodsman, Age 28
219 Lbs|6'4"|#14|THROWS RIGHT


RUNNING BACK

Sean "Lightning" Forrester, Age 28
198 Lbs|6'1"|#22
The team's resident speed and receiving back, Sean Forrester exploits holes in defenses and does it well. Flashy, fast, and rapidly running out of favor in the Crashbone scheme.

Hakeem "Thunder" Okonkwo, Age 26
219 Lbs|6'4"|#33
A Kwakandoan-born power back who prefers to go through rather than around, Hakeem Okonkwo is the team's third down back and favorite out of the Crashbone.

Wally Kells, Age 23
204 Lbs|6'2"|#28

Potter Quinn, Age 24
198Lbs|5'9"|#38


FULLBACK

Holly "Jumbo" Warrick, Age 28
239 Lbs|6'6"|#46
The lovable big guy of the team, Jumbo Warrick is a fan favorite and a surprisingly athletic fullback. Lays down blocks and catches the occasional pass, but that's enough for him.

WIDE RECEIVER

Tanner Wesco, Age 24
181 Lbs|5'10"|#98
An undersized wide receiver, Wesco's speed and sure hands make him one of favorite targets. Does both kick and punt returns.

Mike Holt, Age 31
198 Lbs|6'3"|#82
The Ying to Wesco's Yang, Holt is an infamously dirty player and specializes in catching in traffic.

A.T. White, Age 34
208 Lbs|6'4"|#79
A grizzled veteran, who, despite diminishing physical skills, often uses his experience and intelligence to beat defenses and mentor the other receivers.

Tom Malhop, Age 20
199 Lbs|6'0"|#81
A star college wide receiver, Malhop was selected due to his raw talent and potential. Unfortunately, he lacks experience and football IQ, which can often lead to rookie mistakes. He's here to learn, and not much else.

Harry Parcell
183 Lbs|6'1"|#85

Wallo Mills
191 Lbs|6'3"|#88


TIGHT END

Quinn Larson
204 Lbs|6'2"|#67
A muscular, athletic, dual-purpose tight end. A reliable safety valve for Echavaria and bombastic run blocker.

Oscar Barley
229 Lbs|6'0"|#69
Brutal blocker and big hitter, Barley loves clearing the way for his running backs.

Ian Grantile
198 Lbs|5'11"|#66

Earl Dikeson
201 Lbs|6'2"|#63


OFFENSIVE LINE

J.C Denton, Age 27
229 Lbs|6'4"|#78|LEFT TACKLE
Would be a Right Tackle on any other team, but swapped sides due to blindside being on right. Quick and powerful run blocker. Really likes the Deus Ex games.

Jack Johnson, Age 27
287 Lbs|6'6"|#68|LEFT GUARD
Explosive and powerful run blocker, specializes in combo blocks, but often gets beat in pass pro when isolated.

Gary Plack, Age 23
207 Lbs|6'5"|#54|CENTER
An agile and quick Center, great at getting up the field and hitting the second level.

Will Patrick, Age 26
293 Lbs|6'3"|#52|RIGHT GUARD
Will Patrick does his job and does it well. 'Nuff said.

Ron Irleaman, Age 28
249 Lbs|6'2"|#59|RIGHT TACKLE
A quick, agile, and dirty right tackle with long arms. Knows how to get away with almost any penalty in the rulebook.

Dirk Kowitzki, Age 29
308 Lbs|6'3"|#64|INSIDE O-LINE

Luke Baillor, Age 28
283 Lbs|6'3"|#72|INSIDE O-LINE

Percy Wallen, Age 21
239 Lbs|6'5"|#73|TACKLE

Dan Haskell, Age 29
273 Lbs|6'3"|#53|TACKLE


DEFENSE - "THE RED MENACE"

DEFENSIVE LINE

Bill Wisniewski, Age 24
209 Lbs|6'2|#79|DEFENSIVE END
A first-generation immigrant, Wisniewski is the Bear's most formidable pass rusher, a perfect blend of agility and strength, if a bit lacking in the "understands English" department, which is liable to cause miscommunications.

Owen Franklin, Age 33
228 Lbs|6'3"|#92|DEFENSIVE TACKLE
A big run stopping defensive tackle, Owen Franklin doesn't do much more than clog gaps.

Thomas Killian, Age 29
214 Lbs|6'2|#94|DEFENSIVE TACKLE
A somewhat smaller run stopping defensive tackle, who can also pass rush if need be.

Walter Olzmauer, Age 27
203 Lbs|6'3|#69|DEFENSIVE END
A fast and agile defensive end, Olzmauer specializes in beating blockers around the outside.

Earl Micheals, Age 26
207 Lbs|6'1|#97|DEFENSIVE END

Jack Cranston, Age 31
203 Lbs|6'4|#78|DEFENSIVE END

Lance Ulstom, Age 23
221 Lbs|6'2|#89|DEFENSIVE TACKLE

Yanne Eckers. Age 26
218 Lbs|6'3|#87|DEFENSIVE TACKLE


LINEBACKERS

Thom "Hammer" Sommelsson, Age 27
213 Lbs|6'2"|#63|OUTSIDE LINEBACKER
A hard hitting linebacker who isn't afraid to take a couple hits so he can dish out his own. Fan favorite and subject of the popular chant "Bring down the hammer!"

Pete Warrick, Age 24
219 Lbs|6'5|#96|MIDDLE LINEBACKER
Warrick is the leader of the South Americanastanian defense, with a booming voice and great football mind. A true student of the game.

Micheal Levitsko, Age 23
231 Lbs|6'3"|#41|MIDDLE LINEBACKER
Warrick's right-hand man, Levitsko is known for his endurance and habit of throwing his entire body into hits. While the highlights are great, the lowlights of him flying by a running back are worse.

Red Matrikan, Age 22
197 Lbs|5'11"|#49|OUTSIDE LINEBACKER
Undersized and outshined by Sommelsson and Warrick, Matrikan is small, quick, and agile contrast to the rest of the defense. It can feel like he's everywhere on the field at once due to his ability to cover ground.

Earl Olsen, Age 36
193 Lbs|6'0"|#48|OUTSIDE LINEBACKER

Matt Camel, Age 30
195 Lbs|6'2"|#61|OUTSIDE LINEBACKER

Jack Mastel, Age 24
191 Lbs|6'1"|#99|MIDDLE LINEBACKER


DEFENSIVE BACKS

Ahmad Trianon, Age 25
194 Lbs|6'3"|#24|CORNERBACK
A tough cornerback who's not afraid to rough up receivers and plow into them as soon as the ball hits their hands.

Mack Johnson, Age 28
187 Lbs|6'2"|#29|CORNERBACK
A seasoned ballhawk and lockdown corner. Can put a receiver on an island, though questions about durability linger due to his size.

Erik Nicholson, Age 30
197 Lbs|6'1"|#37|STRONG SAFETY
A big strong safety who isn't afraid to come up and play the run. Has room to improve in the technique department.

Pat "Poker" Larson, Age 26
191 Lbs|6'3"|#39|FREE SAFETY
A smart and agile free safety. Great at bluffing and tricking quarterbacks, messing with reads and earning him the nickname "Poker".

Daniel Harris, Age 21
197 Lbs|6'0"|#21|CORNERBACK

Wally Jackson, Age 26
192 Lbs|6'1"|#25|CORNERBACK

Earl Garrinham, Age 32
199 Lbs|6'0"|#34|STRONG SAFETY

"BEYOND THE WALL"
Head Coach's Office, Football Offices, National Hall of Athletics


"Look, John, I understand that they won't be playing for your team, but we simply cannot afford to pay you extra compensation for their participation past salary coverage."

What a fucking bitch.

Jack Wall sat in his office, desperately trying to get the stone-faced representative to budge on his demands. But alas, the man did not so much as flinch.

"I understand, but the loss of these players from training camp does tangible harm to my client's ability to compete early in the season. They simply cannot loan players out without fair compensation."

Tangible? Fair? Bullshit.

4 teams. In a league of 24, all it took was four teams to have him by the balls. Granted, those 4 teams were offensive juggernauts who made hundreds of millions of dollars each year and supplied a large amount of the Bears' offensive firepower, but still, four teams.

"Their fair compensation is international exposure for their brand. Not to mention, playing against higher-level competition actually helps them in the regular season."

It was like a broken record, that.

2012:

"The booster club isn't happy with you not making enough appearances"

"Their reward for donating is being in the official club"


1993:

"Our sponsor, Spartan, doesn't like that the condom found in your sex scandal was their brand"

"Motherfucker, they should be happy with the exposure"


1981:

"That undrafted quarterback isn't happy with your salary offer"

"He's lucky to even be playing in the SAFL"


And it just didn't stop playing, did it?

"Look, we both know that my clients provide valuable players to your team, especially to the passing-"

"God so help me, I will run a flying wedge this entire tournament if you bring up the passing offense again."

Wall couldn't help but chuckle to himself. He did actually have a flying wedge playbook in his file cabinet.

"Anyways, my clients feel they are not being properly compensated for their services to this team."

The representative lifted a briefcase from the floor, attempting to haul it onto the desk. Wall watched as he attempted to haul the briefcase to the table, before opening it to reveal stacks upon stacks of legal papers. Wall immediately put up a hand.

"Stop. Get the fuck out of my office"

"Why?"

"Because if you don't, I'll call a defensive team meeting right outside this office."

The representative was visibly taken aback by this comment, but left all the same. Wall sat back in his chair, and went into deep thought. Taking out a copy of the team's roster, he began marking off names.

ECHAVARIA [X]

And more names.

HALMION [X]

And yet still more.

HARLOV [X]

Who could save this miserable offense? It's biggest stars gone, offensive coordinator all but forced to leave, led by backups and also-rans, and in desperate need of a hero, any hero?

Wall dialed a number into his phone.

"Hey, A.J., you interested in an opportunity for an SAFL gig?"

Like They Never Left:
Krauts Look To Reclaim Their Rightful Place Atop The Mountain


Image

Image
There is no doubt in the mind of any Ranorian that we're fielding the best team in the game. From a comically large offensive line to a defensive front with none other than Angelo Gordon coming off the bench, this team is stacked at almost every position. After winning back-to-back championships, bringing the World Bowl to Ranoria seemingly penciled them in as the first-ever team to earn the threepeat.

Instead, they hardly escaped the group stage before bowing out in the Round of 16 to Drawkland, the only team that's ever beaten John Garrett in the World Bowl Playoffs. It never benefits a team to dwell on their past success, but this team remains loaded and more than hungry enough to win a third championship.

I say they can win it all again. Everyone in that locker room agrees - and every fan watching at home expects it. But they aren't quite as vocal as they were prior to World Bowl 44. Raul Nieler isn't guaranteeing a title like he was last go round. No one emulating Darnell Sleight's "We will not lose, not once," line. No one's flashing their championship rings or player-exclusive merch.

"That was four years ago," Raul Nieler flatly denied any lingering thoughts of establishing a Ranorian dynasty, "I'm worried about having a sharp practice today and getting ready for Cassadaigua." But for those of us who aren't working on our selective memory, Ranoria's breakthrough in World Bowl 42 - and subsequently running through the World Bowl 43 playoffs - is fresh in our minds. Ranoria has always been considered a football powerhouse, but those two victories cemented us as the class of the world at the professional level - even if those guys over in Banija may have put themselves in the discussion now.

Becoming the first team since World Bowl 17 to go back-to-back is one thing, a tall order for even the most optimistic fan. Maintaining the type of consistency it takes to establish a true dynasty in the sport is a completely different deal. This team now has 17 new starters since their last championship, significant overhaul for a team that only let one of their playoff opponents come within a score over a two-cycle stretch. And those aren't no-name guys.

Darnell Sleight was a godsend at corner for Ranoria during his tenure as a true all-star level talent who showed stretches of being able to lock down some of the best receivers in the game. Angelo Gordon is arguably the best pass rusher in Ranorian history and for a time could lay claim to being the best in the world. And who could forget Johnny Farmer - the NSCF 17 Most Outstanding Player and a guy who was indisputably the best in the world at his position for a decade. All three of those guys are now coming off the bench for this team, and the offensive line features just one of their five starters from their World Bowl 43 campaign.

And hell, our superstar quarterback? Farmboy's encyclopedia of an injury history finally seems to be catching up with him. He's missed 13 games over the last four RFL seasons, and passed for just 241 yards a game in 2032, with 23 touchdowns to 11 picks in 13 contests. Those aren't just well below his production average, but marks the most interceptions he's tossed since 2026 even with the abbreviated season. The signs are becoming telling that arguably the best quarterback in the game is finally beginning to falter - if that's the case, you can just write this season off right now.

Even with that significant adversity in mind, this team will have a target on their back in every game they play, and as we saw last season - "Any given Sunday" still rings true.

So maybe the Krauts are being a little more reserved with their bold claims, but that doesn't mean I have to be. I don't care about your pre-season rankings. Delaclava at number one? Maybe when Taurus Wright sees the inside of a championship venue, we'll talk. The Krauts are the favorites to go all the way once again, and it's more than likely that their toughest opponent is going to come during the group stage. This isn't the team from World Bowl 44 that got upset again and again against teams that, on paper, had no business taking the field against them. They're going to face off against the best defense in the world twice, and they're going to take on Cassadaigua, a team that disrupted our first real shot at making a championship in World Bowl 40, as well. This team, regardless of those results, will be battle-hardened when the time comes to travel to Chromatika.

So don’t tell the Krauts, but they’re about to truly establish themselves as a dynasty.

Seriously, though, don’t mention it to them - I've got Angelo Gordon on speed dial if anyone jinxes it.

Now, we mentioned it in passing, but seriously - we've got some spicy matchups for this group stage. From opening up against a team that's had as big an impact on Ranorian football as anyone to fans all around the multiverse finally seeing their prayers answered as the greatest titans of gridiron football will finally clash in Ranoria and Ko-oren.



For starters: Cassadaigua

If you want a tldr, this post from almost a decade ago now explains the trauma that Cassadaigua team inflicted upon both the Ranorian and Banijan hype trains in the last two games of World Bowl 40.
Image
Image
Image
Image@DiddlyDooJonesonJr Gotta love Banijan and Ranorian fans thinking they're meeting in the final only for Cassadaigua to shut them both down. #WB40
Image


Yep. After the Krauts lost their star quarterback, the late Derek McNair, Cassadaigua completely stifled our offense in a 7-3 bruiser of a contest. They proceeded to route Banija's Isaka Jawara as well in a 6-3 victory, but really the impact of that game went far deeper than just a semifinal loss for a championship-caliber team.

Gridirion in Ranoria up until that point had been almost entirely male, with only Cold Hill University cornerback Clara North breaking through even to the collegiate ranks. But after seeing that game - where a physical Ranorian team was stuffed again and again by the all-female Dagan defense - it seemed like women across Ranoria realized "Oh, those guys aren't so tough after all," and started taking up the pigskin.

While that semifinal was still recent enough that it's mostly seen its effects in the college ranks, this Krauts team boasts both Astrid Verona and Angela Sauber, Richardson University graduates. Kristin Werther seems to be a promising corner for Kohnhead University with a shot to be a first round selection, and running back Gabriele Ziegler has been a human highlight reel at that level.

If anything, it's more talent to the pool for this squad. But Cassadaigua has had a large and long-lasting impact on the sport in Ranoria - it will be interesting to see how these two teams match up after a decade. Bonus points - it's a bit of a revenge game after the diamond Krauts fell in the 3PPO against the Phillies.

And of course, the Dragonflies. This is the matchup everyone's wanted to see since World Bowl 42. A Krauts team that eviscerated almost everyone they played in the postseason for two straight tournaments against the most feared unit in the multiverse in the Ko-oren defense. (Sorry, Chineze. Last season was insane for you, but we need a bit more sustained production than that). The Dragonflies vaunted defense guided them to 3 championships in 5 tries prior to the Krauts pulling a double - they are the reigning dynasty in the sport, and after for all our success, Farmboy and crew never had to go through them.

Like our Krauts, the Dragonflies boast several players who can make a legitimate claim to be the best in the world at their position. (No, we're not going to take the cop out and just say the entire defense), from guard Otho Tilcott, a transcendent corner in Herman Jennings, and so on. There could, possibly be playoff games against opponents as strong, but none stronger, than what we'll have to deal with twice in the group stage - how the two most successful teams in the world get put into the same group only heaven knows.

So game on. No one is looking past an enticing matchup against Cassadaigua, but the next one has been decades in the making - it'll be Krauts vs Dragonflies for the first time ever in the Karmin-Falce Superdome in week 2. And if you're not watching that, well, are you even a football fan?

Gabbing on Gridiron
with Dara Keane


WORLD BOWL XLV: PREVIEW


I’m not going to lie to any and all of you. Abanhfleft has been pretty poor when it comes to the gridiron, and I’m pretty sure that I can trace it back to that moment in the 42nd World Bowl where Abanhfleft, in true typical fashion, lost to Chromatika in the Round of 16. That’s always been the story of Abanhfleft, hasn’t it? Do well in the group stage then lose the very first game of the playoff round. It doesn’t matter who our opponent is, we’re not going to make it into the quarterfinals no matter what. This poor form of ours continued into the 43rd World Bowl, where after going through the groups with a 7-3 record, our Armored Revolutionaries just got body-slammed by the bloody Grid Corps of Drawkland. Remember those guys? Remember the times when Abanhfleft and Drawkland were the bloodiest of all rivals on the gridiron (not literally though; that would have been an absolute literal bloodbath)? Yeah, those were the days, but they’re long gone now. How can we remain a factor in the World Bowl challenge if we’re always going out in the Round of 16? Truly typical Abanhfleft, that.

And don’t even get me started on World Bowl XLIV! Frankly, I thought that that was one of the most pathetic performances that our Armored Revolutionaries have turned in for a while, and I’ve seen some pretty pathetic performances on the field before! It all started off with an embarrassing opening day defeat to Kavanis, and it’s all been downhill ever since. Follow that up with a 7-30 defeat to Banija and you’ve got a recipe for a disastrous campaign that’s dead in the water before it even got going. I mean, just look at some of the scores that happened in this tournament. Banija scored 68 points against us! 68 points! That’s just one point away from the funny sex number that everyone thinks is nice, but there’s nothing nice about that scoreline! It just shows the gulf in quality between the likes of Banija and us. It’s going to take a literal miracle for our Armored Revolutionaries to even get anywhere near the level of the Lions and the Grid Corps and even the Krauts of Ranoria. The hopes and dreams of an entire nation died when Banija beat us 68-28, and it’s going to take literal wizardry to be able to resurrect it.

But we’re going to have to get that Frankenstein magic going pretty please because the 45th World Bowl is now upon us, and for some reason the Fleftic people are getting excited once again. Don’t you idiots know that you’re only setting yourselves up for disappointment with all of the hype and high expectations that you’re putting on this team? Have you all even taken a look at the group that we’ve been put in? We have bloody Delaclava, Drawkland, and Quebec and Shingoryeo in Group E with us! And you expect the Armored Revolutionaries to make it through that? I would love to have some of whatever it is that you idiots are having to even think that we have a chance of surviving that group! Of course, it just had to be our luck that we’re going up against the best gridiron team, the 7th best gridiron team, and the 19th best gridiron team in the same bloody group! And don’t even count out either one of Arjunnagar or the Jovannic Empire! Remember Kavanis and what they did to us. All it takes is one loss to trip up our Armored Revolutionaries, and that’s our hopes for a second World Bowl victory down the drain.

Now I don’t mean to sound like a negative Nancy in all of this. But I’m just trying to keep it realistic and grounded. Of course I want us to win another World Bowl! Frankly, I think that it’s actually a long time coming. But is this the team that’s going to deliver us that long-coveted second World Bowl title? Probably not. Most definitely not. I still think that this team has some way to go before we can consider ourselves being anywhere near able to challenge for the title. It sucks, and it’s probably not what you guys want to hear, but I’m just being truthful to myself. I also don’t want to disappoint myself because of so many high expectations going into something that we actually might not have a chance. Better to keep expectations on the down low; that way, when the team inevitably falls flat on its face, we won’t be so surprised. But I’m pretty sure that they’ll find a way to make us say “holy fuck!” despite such low expectations. That’s just the Abanhfleft way, sadly. Cedric Colon, Cedric Colon, Cedric Colon…

Delaclava national football team


  • Two-time World Bowl champion (13 and 15); four-time third place (41, 42, 43, 44)
  • Four-time previous host (11, 15, 39, 43)
  • Undefeated champions of WB15
  • Ranked #1 in the World (second reign)
  • #3 in all-time Golden Bowl standings
  • Champion of demonstration event at IV Olympiad in Aeropag
  • Champion of Atlantian Oceania Bowl 5

Overview

The Phoenixes, in their second iteration, have come along from optimistic upstarts to weary, battle-tested, uncrowned champions. They're the best team in the world and yet no one else believes it. This team certainly does, yet they want to prove it with a trophy, not with a formula - but speaking of formulae, this squad believes they've finally found a winning one. But it's not come without some tweaks.

It'll no doubt send shockwaves through the world that Michael Willis now sits atop the quarterback depth chart. The reality is, Taurus Wright is a mobility-based quarterback and it appears coach Frank Newman feels more confident in Willis, who's in the thick of his prime now and whose passing has been more precise than ever. And don't discount Willis' ability to evade pressure and improvise either. And he of course has a very capable and accomplished backup behind him. The running back carousel continues as the young, speedy Wildemar Davis takes his turn. The best and deepest receiver corps in the world returns, led once again by Justin Vandaele and Andre Michel - arguably the coaching staff also feels Willis will be better able to take advantage of their talents. And don't forget the wild, mercurial tight end Robbie Hahn.

The defense gets some refreshing up front, with AO Bowl champion defensive end Kymani Warren joining tackles Prince Rose and Jake Allen. The linebacker corps has a very new look, consisting of Kendrick Diaz and Marcus Massot, with veterans Brent Miller and Luke Kennedy stepping away from the international game. Remarkably, a very capable secondary remains largely unchanged, with Tate Parker starting at safety for a fifth World Bowl and joined by Alison Silva, Patrick Catteau, and Luke Mussett. Parker has nothing on Kieran Conley, who is here for World Bowl #7, despite some inauspicious moments over the past few years.

The Delaclava Olympic Committee once again backs Frank Newman of the Mannheim Rockets to lead this squad, with the coaching staff remaining mainly unchanged. The biggest change is the transition at defensive coordinator from Nate Hines to Brandon Means of the Novick Cardinals. Newman takes a more conservative approach, trusting his defense to make stops instead of going for unfavorable fourth-down conversions, but Newman will also let his playmakers loose when the offense nears paydirt.

The Phoenixes tend to start strong, but can have trouble both in coming back from deficits and from "game management" with a small lead. But they have the mettle and the experience to hold on. For the most part, this isn't a team you're going to blow out of the water. In the past three World Bowls, they have only lost games to Banija, Ranoria, and Sarzonia, and those games largely show you're going to have to get tough and gritty to make it past the Phoenixes.

Defensive Formation: 4-3-3 (with some 4-4-2 and 3-4-4)
Style Modifier: +3 - pass-oriented, with a lot of option plays and play action, high-risk high-reward mentality

Footballers psyched for return,
by Chelsea Dufresne, Concord Heights Times


It went to overtime, but in the quarterfinals, Cassadaigua was not able to successfully defend their World Bowl 40 championship. Dejected, Cassadagan players left Urrheddiao in Chromatika talking about how they would be back. At that moment, there was no idea that Cassadagan players would not be permitted to return to the World Bowl, due to the Queen’s edict to remove many teams from international sports due to the governing bodies of those sports covering up differing levels of doping within their sports at the domestic level. It wasn’t seen as fair to the players at all, and essentially all of them complained. This led to a player’s strike in football (editors note: when the Concord Heights Times mentions football, we are talking about the game in which is contested in the World Bowl. That other sport, where a ball is kicked around is referenced by us as soccer), and then in basketball. The guilty parties were punished, with some executives serving some jail time. But the biggest sentences were from the players themselves.

During the last World Cup, soccer players began to band together with football players as well as those in other sports to try and convince Queen Cassie II to bring back the sports. That would not happen, but when Princess Brianna began to mention that she would bring back the teams, then Princess Cassie III also said that she would do so, keeping the topic from being part of the drive for public opinion in the succession argument. With Cassie III now the queen, she has been true to her word, bringing back the World Bowl and the World Cup of Hockey, and many believe that the International Basketball Championships will return as well. Eight years have now passed since the last time Cassadaigua played in the World Bowl, and while some are back, many players have been robbed of their opportunity to avenge the World Bowl 41 loss. It would have been scripted perfectly, with this World Bowl also being hosted by Chromatika, but is not a reality. Wide receiver Alexa Schulz was one of the most vocal protestors to bring back the World Bowl to Cassadaigua, but the now 38 year old is retired. Still, she told me that she is happy to see it. “Too late for me, too late for a lot of us. We had a great team in 40 that won it all, and a great team in 41 with many key players that could have been back in 42. But, we could not, for something that people in skirts did in the league office. There were some guilty players, but none of the guilty players were part of the World Bowl roster. It was a complete farce that we were punished like that. I’m happy some are getting the chance to go back, and glad for the generation of players that will be returning.”

All but one of the home games will be held in Concord Heights, and the matchday 3 game will be in New Lakeland for the west coast fans. The team is an underdog, having to go through the progressions of climbing the ladder and proving themselves internationally again. The group draw would be considered brutal if it was World Bowl 41, and if we were in against Ranoria and Ko-oren, but we are not where we were and will have two very tough games there. Ranoria, at home in Concord Heights, is the first opponent we will face as well. Fillies fans will remember beating them in the semifinals en route to the World Bowl 40 title. This time might not be pretty, but at least it’s a game. Because it’s a game we haven’t had a chance to see in far too long.

Chromatika Gridiron Football Team

Nickname: The Iron Legion
Head Coach: Eustace Hampton Jr., 63
Offensive Coordinator: Milo Jones-Smith, 51
Defensive Coordinator: Urga Jones, 42
Special Teams Coordinator: Niles Crescent, 47
World Rank: 3
Style Modifier: +1.5
Home Stadium: Henza Center, D'rea, Capital District, Chromatika (Cap. 66,530)


OFFENSE
Offensive Coordinator: Naia Curentino, Felswyr State University Firehawk
Offensive Philosophy: The Chromatik Iron Legion employs a possession-based philosophy, utilizing two backs, two receivers, and a tight end in an attempt to string together long drives that eat up a lot of the clock. With Sarai Gwenderyn now at the helm, they're becoming more of a finesse squad, and she's rearing to go.
Players: - Starters in Italics

Quarterbacks
#03 - Sarai Gwenderyn - 24 years old. Ranoria City Falcons (Ranoria). Quick, accurate thrower, with good field vision and a tendency of creating big plays. Offensive Captain. (Former FSU)
#18 - Jill Kieran - 29 years old. Chromia Cyan. A more traditional pocket passer with decent speed, prefers to throw deep or be on the edge looking to cause trouble.
#08 - Sheila Pantoja - 24 years old. Fermete Maulers. A Quarterback suited to the triple-option who can run the ball, hand it off, or make clutch throws. (Former STU)

Backs
#25 - Lana Rhodes - 23 years old. GFLB (Banija). A bulldozer of a back with low center of gravity that loves to run through contact.
#22 - Rowena Hastroff - 23 years old. Chromia Cyan. A speedster with lightning-fast first step that can blow past defenders.
#35 - Lashon Upshaw - 24 years old. Munich Thrashers (Ranoria). A bullish fullback who's made it a life goal to make linebackers and defensive backs miserable, getting to the second level on most blocks.
#38 - Kaytlyne Sellers - 23 years old. Swisston City University Army Knives (Kohnhead). An aggressive back that initiates contact, Sellers can catch would-be-tacklers off guard with a second level of speed.

Receivers
#11 - Alessandra Mio - 26 years old. Ranoria City Falcons (Ranoria). 6 ft 5 inches tall, has massive reach. A Quarterback needs to only get the ball near her, she'll do the rest. (Former FSU)
#18 - Kern Sayan - 32 years old. Chromia Cyan. 5 ft 11 inches, precise route-runner. Not very physically imposing.
#84 - Cameron Pills-Otts - 30 years old. Knetyohai Icebreaker. 5 ft 4 inches. Mostly used for end-arounds and screen passes, has great vision. Also returns punts.
#81 - Demitrius St. Pierre - 21 years old. Raynor University Rocket (Valanora). 6 ft 4 inches. A jack of all trades who makes plays at almost any position on the field.
#83 - Raoul Seen - 26 years old. Qet Lynx. 6 ft 3 inches. A new find in the CFL with a tendency of winning almost every jump ball.

Tight Ends
#88 - Niles Gwivern - 25 years old. Qet Lynx. 6 ft 5 inches tall, 260+ pounds. Can block, catch, do it all. An absolute unit. (Former FSU)
#97 - Ulrich Jefferson - 21 years old. Felswyr State University Firehawk. 6 ft 8 inches. More of a pure receiver than a blocker.

DEFENSE
Defensive Coordinator: Urga Jones, Staramara Angels
Assistant Coordinator: Kasen Harrowitz, Richardson University
Defensive Philosophy: The Iron Legion uses a Base 3-4, with pressing safeties that rely on cornerbacks to play on an island. It is those cornerbacks that will determine if the team succeeds. Chromatika is strong against the run and the long pass, but can be bested by intermediate or short passes. The majority of the players come from the NSCF ranks.
Players: Starters in Italics

Defensive Ends
#60 - Jill Lia - 25 years old - Staramara Angel. A pure speedy edge rusher who has an endless motor. (Former FSU)

#55 - Candace Ferrett - 23 years old - Cold Hill University Buffalo. An edge rusher with an endless motor who may be small in size but plays big.
#58 - Aubin Rouzet - 21 years old - Felswyr State Firehawk. A driven pass-rusher who can also drop back into coverage if the situation warrants it.

Outside Linebackers
#44 - Cara Setri - 29 years old - Staramara Angel. Loves to rush from the edge or drop into coverage, as is needed. (Former FSU)
#42 - Randy Mett - 33 years old - Brisara Juggernaut. More of a cover linebacker.
#54 - Nicole Manstrom - 22 years old - Felswyr State Firehawk. A lightning-fast blitzing specialist who makes her life hitting the backfield hard.
#49 - Odwin Freman - 28 years old - Alnio Pirate. Someone who has all the intangibles - but can get lost in the course of play.

Inside Linebackers
#59 - Mi-Hyeon Park - 24 years old - Feremete Maulers (Ranoria). Dictates the defense. Tackling machine. Decent coverage linebacker. Defensive Captain. (Former FSU)

#52 - Lauren Scott - 21 years old - Knetyohai Icebreaker. Skipped out on the NSCF experience altogether to go pro early, a raw talent.

Strong Safeties

#20 - Kera Small - 28 years old - Alnio Pirate. A player with solid fundamentals, Small overcommits at times.

#29 - Paul Mattieu - 25 years old - Dietrich Dynamos. 6 ft 3 inches. Plays a bit more aggressively for the ball. (Former FSU)

SPECIAL TEAMS
Special Teams Coordinator: Niles Crescent, Brisara Juggernaut
Assistant Coordinator: Vera James, Felswyr State University
Special Kicking Coach: Sara McAllister
Special Teams Philosophy: A kicker should never miss. Play for field position. Solid fundamentals. The Iron Legion doesn't do much trickery - but is very good at coverage and at kicking.
Players: - Starters in Italics

Kicker
#03 - Dwayne Markseon - 21 years old - Northern Moravica University Cougar (Banija). Having shown that he can be clutch with some range in his first two seasons with the Cougars, Markseon gets the call, having shown poise that is lacking at his age.
#16 - Lauren Schiavonne - 29 years old - Chromia City Cyan. Had the best season for a kicker ever in the CFL last season, going a perfect 33 of 33, including 10 of 10 from over 50 yards. If it wasn't for the talent factory that was the NSCF for Chromatika, she'd get the nod instead.

Punter
#12 - Nellie Katt - 23 years old - Ranoria City Falcons (Ranoria). Directional punter specializing in coffin corners. Not very good at long punts, but can drop them in. (Former FSU)
