I use my own custom playbook.  I have quite a good QB.

I forgot to add a link to the league's web site. A new updated site is under construction by rollntider(Commisioner). Tbird and myself are assistant commissioners.

Does MLF police playbooks for AI busters?

I have yet to find any AI busting plays in the game. Everything I have come across can be stopped with the proper defense. (Yeah like I should talk, I just gave up 70!)

Do you have an example or two? I'm sure Tbird and I would both be interested.

Or are you just stirring up trouble?

Me? Stir up trouble?  How dare you!



One QB had a fantastic TD/Int ratio, and in past leagues I have been in, that usually was something to watch out for.

Super high rushing average was another thing to watch.

Notes:

Is it possible to still have an expansion team for your next season. From what I can tell the U.S. and Canadian Conferences are a little off, if you would be okay with a team in the U.S. playing in the Canadian conference I would like to join (but if not, I can live with making an Canadian Franchise). If you would like to see the tenative idea for the franchise please visit www.sentries.blogspot.com . If you want to contact me please e-mail me at grandmarquis84@yahoo.com

Thank you,

We have started the playoffs.

We have one open team left. The Toronto Maple Leafs. The current Maple Leafs will be moved to Seattle, and the Team will become an expansion.(KInda like how Cleveland Browns retained their history with new ownership in the 90's) We are making the Maple Leafs a founding franchise since it appeared in PC gamer. The team cant be changed. So the team is open and currently league owned. If you want the team and dont mind that it cant be moved. Please send me a PM over at www.blindsideblitz.com/forums

Teams come open from time to time, so you can swap ownership when the event happens and move a team that is allowed to be moved. But we only have one vacant team now.

Thank you.

Conference Championship Game Results! - 2/9/2008 11:32:21 AM

Road warriors prevail in high scoring
MLF Conference Championship games.


Canadian Conference Championship in Edmonton, Alberta.
What started as a wild game in Edmonton turned into a rout for the red hot Winnipeg Storm. The Storm rushed their way on both sides of the ball to a 73 to 30 victory, their 5th straight. The Skullsmashers had beaten the Storm in both of their previous meetings this year.

The teams sprinted out of the gate to a first quarter score of Storm 21 - Skullsmashers 14. But the Skullsmashers could not stop the relentless rush of the Storm's pass rush, giving up 14 sacks in the game and never really getting their 2nd ranked passing game going.

In a career day Winnipeg HB Chrys had 636 rushing yards in 43 carries for an astounding 8 TDs. "They just give me the ball and I run. I don't even think about anything else" Chrys said after the game. Edmonton's Birden also had a fantastic outing with 221 yards and 3 TDs in a losing effort.

American Conference Championship in Chicago, Illinois.

In perhaps the biggest rivalry in the MLF the Wind hosted the Twisters in a rematch of last years Blitz Cup. Last year the wildcard Chicago team stunned the MLF in an upset of the heavily favored Tulsa. They have also beaten Tulsa twice already this year. But the Twisters were not afraid. They came in with a chip on their shoulder and their minds on revenge.

In what might have been one of the best first halves in the MLF this year the two offensive juggernauts played most of the first quarter scoreless until they started furiously trading scores in route to a Twisters 28 to 21 halftime lead over the Wind.

It was a battle of the steady offensive machine of Chicago vs. the lightning quick strikes of Tulsa. Midway through the 3rd quarter it was Tulsa 35 - Chicago 31. Then the wheels came of fell off for Chicago when they gave up 5 turnovers in about 7 minutes which lead to 35 Tulsa points. Chicago's league leading QB Vovak had thrown only 3 interceptions all year threw 3 interceptions in 3 minutes. "I don't know man. They were just better than us today." he was quote after the game. The final score was Tulsa 73, Chicago 45.


Blitz Cup II set


This is Tulsa's second straight year in the league championship game. They started the year 1-4 but have won 6 straight games by dominating their opponents. They were the 3rd seed in the American Conference with a 7-5 record.

The Storm have Winnipeg in a state of mixed emotion after announcing that the team was moving to Mobile, Alabama next season after a 3-6 start. Since then the Storm have ripped off 5 highly impressive victories in route to the championship game. They were the 3rd seed in the Canadian Conference with a 6-6 record.

The two teams have not faced each other this year and the early line out of Vegas has it as a "pick 'em" game. No doubt with both teams peaking at the end of the season that this could very well be a classic game.

A game for the ages!

Tulsa, Oklahoma - The Tulsa Twisters were once again hosting the Blitz Cup on their home field. Both Blitz Cup games in the MLF's short history have been played in Tulsa. Tulsa was defeated by Chicago in the first ever Blitz Cup and was looking for redemption in front of a full crowd of wild home town fans.

The game started with a bang when Winnipeg WR Zaxby returned the opening kickoff 92 for a touchdown putting up the favored Winnipeg Storm up 7 to 0 with just seconds gone in the game. The Twisters immediately responded with a 7 play 84 yard drive that ended with a 9 yard touchdown from Winlock to Block. The Storm then responded with a 50 yard field goal by Simpkins to make the score Storm 10 - Twisters 7 at the end of the first quarter.

Tulsa tied the game early in the second quarter at 10 with a 26 yard field goal by Mitkowski. The Storm took the ball on there own 20 and marched down the field with 10 play drive that resulted in a 7 yard TD pass from Arcea to Boultinghou. After a quick Tulsa series resulting in a punt, the Twisters Dedrick intercepted an Arcea pass at the 50 yard line which resulted in a field goal attempt of 55 yards by Mitkowski that fell inches short. The half ended with the score Winnipeg 17 - Tulsa 10.

The Twisters received the second half kick off and marched down the field in a well executed 9 play, 82 yard drive for a 1 yard pass to Blok for his second TD of the game, tying the score at 17. Tulsa had momentum on their side as they held the Storm to a quick 3 and out and scoring quickly on a 40 touchdown pass from Winlock to little used back Etter. The third quarter ended with the score Tulsa 24 - Winnipeg 17.

The Storm rallied back to tie the game at 24 early in the fourth quarter with Boultinghou's second touchdown reception of the game after a 9 play 81 yard drive. After a Tulsa 3 and out Winnipeg took a 27 to 24 lead with a long 50 yard field goal by Simpkins. Tulsa responded with a 5 play 76 yard drive to take the lead 31 to 27 on a Thompson 6 yard TD reception. With time running out in stadium of raucous Tulsa fans Winnipeg was down to what seemed to be their last hope when it was 4th down and 19 at their own 42 yard line with about three minutes left. Tulsa erupted in celebration when the Twisters intercepted the Arcea pass and was downed at the 45 yard line. Leading by 4, all Tulsa had to do now is run out the clock to claim their first ever MLF championship.

Surprisingly, Tulsa's Offensive coordinator Jackson called 4 straight pass plays moving the ball deep into Winnipeg’s territory until....... Tulsa's TE Blok, who would have been under consideration for the game's MVP award fumbled the ball with 1:01 left. As this teammates tried to console him the Storm took to the field one last time with but the faintest glimmer of hope. In a drive that was anything but pretty and included a 4th and 11 play the Storm somehow moved down the field until they were at the Twisters 9 yard line with only 3 seconds left in the game. Winnipeg's Chrys who had a solid game rushing the ball but was mostly held in check and had caught no passes somehow found a empty spot in the Twisters defense right on the goal line where Arcea hit him with a bullet pass and the Storm had pulled out the most dramatic victory in MLF history 34 to 31 with no time left on the clock and a stunned and silent Tulsa crowd.

It is unknown if the Storm will return to Winnipeg for a victory celebration or head straight to Mobile, Alabama, their home for next season. Tulsa will take very little time off before starting their quest to reach their 3rd straight Blitz Cup.

thanks for the kind words but right now it isnt all that stable. I have some personal issues i am dealing with. But the best advice I can give is this:
dont be an ass, people will ask you stupid questions from time to time, just answer them and move on, dont get upset over them. It happens.
Stay dedicated to the league. And always if you screw up, admit it. I made many of mistakes and will make more. Just put it out there, people understand and usually can live with it.
