  1. Hello EFL, as you may have seen, ECFA Predictions were processed today, and you can claim however much TPE you got by clicking on the Predictions button on your EFLO player page. However, the thing that we use to input predictions did not allow us to input the KRotY winner (Destiknee Willicams) for KRotY, so as a result, we have decided to give you all 3 free TPE because of this error, whether you did it or not! It can be claimed under the Giveaways button on your player page (it's called ECFA Predictions) and can be claimed until the end of this regular season (October 21). Thanks for your understanding and have a great day!

  2. This is just for shit and giggles, folks. Nothing to be taken too seriously here, I hope. Without further ado, here are your preseason power rankings. 8.) Seattle Predators Preseason Result: L 14-15 to Wisconsin Team AVG APE: 336.28 (8th) Seattle looked out of sorts in their preseason debut on the road against Wisconsin. When your signature ground game goes dead quiet for just 76 combined yards on 30 attempts among 4 ballcarriers, that's a bad omen of things to come. Twoson Fourside's regression may prove to be too much for the future Hall of Fame running back to overcome, and Tactique Marteau's short-game passing might eat up chunks of yards every now and then - it doesn't seem like the passing game is ready to carry the team at all. Their defense could have used a higher first-round pick this past offseason to bolster the unit, but when you're coming off a championship, you won't hear too many complaints. It's going to be a long season for the Predators. 7.) Los Angeles Reign Preseason Result: L 6-26 to Toronto Team AVG APE: 365.00 (7th) We all knew that Los Angeles was going to have a couple of rough rebuilding years as they opted to bare the cupboard in exchange for future assets. The first assets came in the mail through the S37 Entry Draft where the Reign were able to draft FS Stetson David, CB Blake Wilson, QB Rex Rider and RB Mustang Rushmore. With a few more picks coming on the horizon, this season will all be about giving these rookies maximum playing time and opportunities to stat-pad. In their preseason game, Rex Rider did not throw a single interception on 34 pass attempts and Stetson David even led the team with 13 tackles and one interception - this team will take all the good signs they can get. 6.) Wisconsin Brigade Preseason Result: W 15-14 vs. Seattle Team AVG APE: 603.69 (2nd) It seems rather unorthodox that a team ranked second in Team AVG APE would rank this low in the power rankings -- but it may be a matter of the team meeting the minimum on both sides of the ball quantity-wise along with a couple of top-heavy veterans skewering the results here. In stark contrast to their success from S28-S34 -- Wisconsin actually ran the ball more than they passed - rushing a total of 49 times compared to 30 pass attempts -- however, this offense only produced 5 field goals. It's going to be really interesting to see if newly signed running back Captain Cutthroat can keep up his 47-carry/game pace through the regular season. The defense still looks stout with linebackers Ahhh Specriggivi, Yalla The Biter and free safety Martilo Tactico leading the unit. 5.) San Francisco Frenzy Preseason Result: L 6-34 to Miami Team AVG APE: 526.86 (6th) San Francisco ranks ahead of Wisconsin largely on the basis of their ability to field an efficient passing attack. The team may have simply been a victim of bad luck in the preseason as Algren threw three interceptions against a respectable Miami Neptune secondary - which may be a sign that he'll miss his favorite wide receiver Nsikayesizwe Kolisi a lot more than we thought. The Frenzy's defensive unit were able to rack up 11 pass deflections in what was a busy day defending the passing lanes, but still got rung up for 469 total yards (412 passing). However, in a weak Western Conference - San Francisco could still somehow limp their way into the playoffs. 4.) Minnesota Frontier Preseason Result: L 17-34 to New York Team AVG APE: 643.07 (1st) Minnesota's preseason is an interesting case study for myself -- they were outgained by only 15 yards, yet lost by 17 points. When I went to examine the box score - the answer was quite simple. Three interceptions thrown by Minnesota's QB Michael Lunatia, all to future Hall of Fame CB Lemony Snicket of the Herd. This was also the first game for the Frontier in the post-Eden Empire II era, but they were able to replace him with running back Billy Bumper who finds himself in a familiar RBBC committee with Potato Salad. The defense actually looks solid, holding the vaunted Herd passing attack to just 265 yards and is going to be a scary bunch to pass against. The Frontier will need to try to figure out a way to better utilize star receiver D'Quan Gilbert if they're to take that next step toward a championship contender as opposed to just being the best of a weak conference. 3.) Toronto Skyhawks Preseason Result: W 26-6 over Los Angeles Team AVG APE: 564.57 (4th) It's crazy to think that only only last season's draft, we saw the Toronto Skyhawks select QB Martin Isaac II with the #1 overall draft pick, and now we be talking about the Toronto Skyhawks as a potential Top-3 team in the EFL. Toronto took care of business against Los Angeles, like they should be against rebuilding teams, and did so with an dynamic balanced attack (228 passing yards, 201 rushing yards). Curtis Taylor has finally returned to his original running back position and looked great doing so - the defense will be top-heavy and led by arguably the best hybrid defender in the game, Warren Grey who racked up a league-high 16 tackles in the preseason. They're going to need to bring their A-game if they want to be in the Top-2 of the East. 2.) New York Herd Preseason Result: W 34-17 vs. Minnesota Team AVG APE: 571.81 (3rd) After a disappointing end to their postseason run last season (why does that phrase sound like a broken tape recorder?) - New York acquired wide receiver N. Kolisi via a trade with San Francisco along with LB Harry Dillinger for three future draft picks in an obvious effort to compete for an immediate championship. The result? A convincing preseason victory over Minnesota in a potential S37 EFL Championship Game preview. It's going to be incredibly silly trying to stop all of TE Ragnar Jarvinen, WRs Kolisi along with Count Olaf and Dan Wilinsky III. Their defense should be respectable - but when you're playing New York, you're basically walking into a track meet and the only way to beat them is to either ice the running surface (while wearing ice skating blades) or beat them off the starting gun if you've got enough firepower. 1.) Miami Neptune Preseason Result: W 34-6 vs. San Francisco Team AVG APE: 544.06 (5th) Yeah, this sounds so freaking clinche, just like New York's postseason shortcomings - but the championship will always have to run through Miami for as long as that dadgumit GM Wheaties is still there. They actually outgained every other offense in the preseason and did so through the air (412 passing / 469 total yards). When you've got a Triple Crown threat at Trigger Colt, a saavy veteran in Brian Kirkland and newcomer Ayomide Ayodele along with Amelia Michigan providing depth at receiving - then there's also the underrated signing of Judoma Forscythe to round out the Neptune offense. Jeez. They've got a solid secondary too with Brian Meatball, rookie Lamar King, Inactive Heisman-Winner and Porter Buford to complement the solid linebackers. Okay, so when does Miami ever regress?

  3. S37 ECFA Power Rankings 8. Death Valley Rangers TPE levels, lack of personal, and other reasons leave the Rangers at the bottom of the power rankings. Yes, Quarterback Venice Cruz is still the man and can still play. But I still see the Rangers winning 2-5 games this year. 7. Biscayne Bay Pirates Biscayne Bay has moved up a spot y'all! They have a great HC who wants to see them go out and win. They recently dropped their QB for one on the transfer thread. RB Kacey Keys will be carrying this offense mark my words. See them winning 3-6 games this year. 6. Manchester Lookout Manchester was at the bottom but now with a great HC who has come in and has really started to make a change. Brian Harper switching to QB has really given the team some hope and with the addition of RB Wayne Jackson I see them winning 4-7 games this year. 5. Trenton Generals Trenton has really made it out of the mud. They continue to play well and even with QB Rex Rider leaving they have another upcoming great in QB Jaylen Johnson. Coach Beast knows what he is doing and he is going to show that Trenton isn't to be fucked with. See them winning 5-8 games this year. 4. Roswell Encounter Normally Roswell wouldn't be ranked so low, but with HC Adrest stepping down and with them losing a major player to the transfer thread, They have some regrouping to do. They still have a good team and have added a QB finally, Are they the same team tho? Have them winning 6-9 games this year 3. Savage City Wraiths A team that really was not a good team last year, their team was young. Now the team has developed into a very scary team with having 2 capped RB's at 199, a Quarterback with 150+ TPE, and overall 9 players above 100 TPE. This team will be the biggest surprise this year. Have them winning 7-10 games 2. Athens Carnage They're back? That's right. The reigning champions are still looking for blood. They lost a lot of talent but just reloaded with Eden Echo and Lance Swift IV, as long as coach Numbers is there they will always be in the conversation. Killian Rose won't be taking any prisoners either. Have them winning 8-11 games 1. Hades Creek Phalanx Oh lord, they done reloaded? Sigh. This team has leaped all the way to the top of the Power Rankings! They now have a great QB from the transfer thread and WR Big Chest Brown is itching to strike. Plus Freshman RB Arby Sutton. This Offense will be the best in the league. Have them winning 9-12 games

  4. Introduction Welcome to the EFL short for Elite Football League. The premier sim league to grow, and grind your future hall of famer. You will start by going to https://efl.simflow.io/ the portal that coexists with the forums, and a key part of this game. Once inside of EFLO (Nickname for the Portal.) you will locate the Create-A-Player button at the top left under the player tab. This is the path to designing your player with the vision you have in mind for them. Do you want to be DK Metcalf? Well then you'd go, and select Create-A-Player WR, and pick an archetype out of the four options that suits the abilities/work ethic you'd like your character to have. EFL allows you to create a player on both sides of the ball, allowing twice the fun. Both characters are different one being offensive, and one being defensive. It isn't necessary to have two characters, but if you stick around, and like it consider doing it as it helps the league as a whole by filling roster spots, and creating a healthier eco-system for everyone. Additionally it allows you to chase stats, and awards on two players. After character creation, you will enter a period of waiting. It will be short, but you need to be pitched to by the league's selection of Athletic Directors. Mandatorily they have to wait twelve hours allowing every athletic director to have a chance to pitch, and make his case even if you commit to them verbally upon creation, or whatever the case may be. After twelve hours you can get a contract, and sign with the school of your choice. Picking the School for You An important part of the player process is picking the right place for your player to play. This isn't solely on the player as stated above. You can look around in EFLO, and click the ECFA (College) index, and see which College may have a spot for your position, or if you just like the team that wins the most you may be more inclined to sign with them. You can stay into college for up to four years like real life, and chase awards. Do you want to be the greatest college player, or make the league earlier, and get in with the big dawgs? The choice is entirely up to you. After Joining a School After making a commitment to a school you will be given the opportunity to sign to their roster. Once you have accepted your contract, you will be invited to the locker room of your team. (A discord server typically.) In their you will be able to communicate your build's intentions, team desires, and whatever else you wish with your teammates. It's a good place to chat, network, and build connections. It's also a very good place to get hyped for the season, or the future of each other's players. Earning TPE TPE stands for total points earned. TPE is the primary factor when it comes to growing your player. It's the points put into your player so the higher the TPE Number, the better the player. When starting the game out you will earn points from doing tasks on the forum such as (articles, quotes, graphics), and they will apply to your weekly cap of 12/12. Every week you can log in, and make twelve points to progress your guy forward in his career. There are circumstances where you can circumvent the cap however such as training (offseason bonus), or other special themes week available in the offseason (Events Week/Media Week). This is called Uncapped TPE, and allows you to go past the cap after your 12 typically for around 18 to 20 points. Pictured, example of where to spend your TPE at to increase your character's abilities. Everybody has their own way of earning TPE they prefer. The writer, myself.. I like to do a Player Brand (short writing about your player's lifestyle/social media post, etc.), Graphic, Press conference to cap out for my twelve.. but I also take advantage of the seasonal ranking opportunity at any chance I get. (Seasonal opportunity = once a season. Do a ranking for 6 uncapped TPE.) APE If you've done some scrolling in EFLO, you'll see this number right next to TPE. It essentially means applied points earned. Once you hit a certain number of TPE your character will start to naturally regress as if they were aging. The hit won't be too bad to start out, and you can purchase certain things with your contract money to fight against it, and lower the regression rate with hopes of becoming an all-time great, or just riding it out for one last hurrah with your pro team. This won't happen for some years into your player's career so there's no reason to worry about this now- it's just something I wanted to include so you know the full scope of things to look out for. Capped VS Uncapped TPE Every player starts out at "capped" with the potential to earn 199 TPE. Base is 50, so if you play out a full season, and max earn the entire season you'll end up if you do all uncapped opportunities etc with the ability to uncap potentially in your first season. Uncapping is basically unlocking your player's full potential, but it will only allow you to play one full year in college after you do it, and be forced to declare for the EFL draft. If you earn any TPE over 199, it will push you into the next year's draft. So if you intend to play college, stay at 199. You cannot earn any TPE until you decide to uncap, so if you cap first year, and intend to play college all four you could uncap at the end of your player's third season, and go for a more dominant college run at upwards of 300ish tpe in his final collegiate season. Discord/Ending Notes The game is simulated using Draft Day Sports 2016. Games will be presented following a eight week schedule, and if you have any further inquiries, want further help, experience problems in EFLO/EFL, or just simply want to ask some questions- join the discord, and our community will surely help you as you start your path to greatness.

  5. Thank you everyone for tuning into the ECFA Week Two Presentation here on EFL Sports. Be sure to tune in next time for Week Three as the season shapes up unexpectedly with teams records all over the place, and nowhere near their projections. Savage City Wraiths for real? Athen's coming back to the Finals a third time? HCP, things not all great in a stacked offense after all? We have it all here.

  6. HALFTIME SCORES 7 - 10 The Lookout come to life in the second quarter, as Brian Harper scampers in for a 9-yard touchdown and Don Keigh hammers a short field goal with time running out for the lead! 10 - 7 Speaking of coming alive, the Wraiths offense begins to move! Dawson Zimmerman throws his first touchdown of the season, 26 yards to Albie Darforyou, and a last minute BKE FG puts the Wraiths up 3! 3 - 14 Roswell kicks a short field goal to get on the board, but Killian Rose tosses his second touchdown of the day to Sherman Moss and the defending champs go up two scores!

He came in and really gave a broken Skyhawk team so hope for the future. This man has nothing but greatness coming his way.

  16. Welcome to my objective (that is, entirely numbers-based) ranking of the ECFA recruiting classes for this season. Before we get into that, let me present a few objective ratings of this freshman class. Here they are, ranked by total TPE: 10. ATH WR Tyson White (86 TPE) @Lefty_S 9. ATH RB Sadie Adams (88 TPE) @sadie 8. HCP LB Rada Belov (89 TPE) @dustywilson22 7. SCW TE Jayson Prince (108 TPE) @Youngbuck 6. MAN WR Gabrijela Kazimira (109 TPE) @omgitshim T-4. ATH CB Stanley Yelnats (110 TPE) @Cornholio T-4. ATH RB Eden Echo (110 TPE) @McWolf 3. ATH KP Jimmy Hexadecimals (124 TPE) @124715 2. ATH RB Lance Swift VI (126 TPE) @Wally 1. HCP RB Arby Sutton (153 TPE) @CowboyinAmerica Sutton, one of just two redshirts on this list, effortlessly clears the rest of the freshman class and figures to reach the 199 TPE cap quickly in the season. Echo and Belov are the only RTPs on the list, showing that true players still largely rule the ECFA ranks. Athens, notably, owns six of the top ten spots. Here are the top few first-gen players, also ranked by total TPE: T-5. MAN RB Wayne Jackson (68 TPE) @Datboi69 T-5. MAN CB Triston Cluskey (68 TPE) @Datboi69 T-5. MAN WR Boris Trukov (68 TPE) @Comrade_cat T-5. SCW LB Maurice Alvarado III (68 TPE) @Kuesmo 4. DVR WR Paul Muad'Dib (74 TPE) @domffl 3. TRE KP Dude Buck (75 TPE) @TheDudeBuck 2. SCW RB John Brady (79 TPE) @John Brady 1. ATH RB Sadie Adams (88 TPE) @sadie All these players figure to play major and even starting roles in their freshman seasons, so make sure to keep an eye on this group! Now let's get into the team rankings. First, establishing a set of rules to help adjust the TPE number - call it adj. TPE - I'll use for these rankings: - players controlled by a team's AD do not count towards a team's total - RTP players count for half of their total TPE - first-gen earnings (that is, TPE over 50) count double - redshirt players receive a 25% penalty on their earnings (TPE over 50) These rules should help produce a more accurate picture of recruiting success than pure TPE. Let's get into the rankings! 8. Roswell Encounter (0 adj. TPE) The reigning ADotY Adrest recently handed over the position of Encounter AD to Gage, leaving the recruiting cupboards bare. But with the current strong state of the Encounter, it's likely Gage will be able to bring exciting new talent to Roswell. 7. Death Valley Rangers (98 adj. TPE) Freshman Class: WR Paul Muad'Dib (74 TPE) Not only did the Rangers add one of the most promising first gen users on the recruiting market, they also transferred in WR Thin Receiver to decisively fill a big need on the team. Depth may be an issue, but at least the passing game should be fun to watch. 6. Biscayne Bay Pirates (142 adj. TPE) Freshman Class: RB Kacey Keys (80 TPE), QB/WR Jasom Breeze Jr. (58 TPE) - 138 total TPE Biscayne Bay's biggest additions came in the transfer portal, as they landed both QB Frederick Frucker Jr. and LB Dexter Jackson Jr. Since I'm not counting transfers in this ranking, they earn a perhaps unfairly low spot on the list. Still, both Keys and last season's redshirt Breeze Jr. will play important roles this season and hopefully in the future too. 5. Hades Creek Phalanx (172 adj. TPE) Freshman Class: RB Arby Sutton (153 TPE), LB Rada Belov (89 TPE) - 242 total TPE Hades Creek is probably not at all worried about their freshman class. I mean, have you looked at their roster? It's stupid. Neither Sutton nor Belov will be tops at their respective positions this year, but after they graduate, uh, nine (!!!) players into the EFL both will be cornerstones for the Phalanx. 4. Savage City Wraiths (230 adj. TPE) Freshman Class: TE Jayson Prince (108 TPE), RB John Brady (79 TPE), WR Yula Barge (71 TPE), LB Maurice Alvarado III (68 TPE) - 326 total TPE The Wraiths disappointed last year, but a solid class of incoming freshmen look to reinforce the team. Brady and Alvarado are two exciting first-gen players that should be centerpieces on both the offense and defense in Savage City. 3. Trenton Generals (264 adj. TPE) Freshman Class: CB Carley Keys (80 TPE), KP Dude Buck (75 TPE), TE Nathan Claflin (67 TPE) - 222 total TPE It was a fun season for Trenton last season, and with another promising recruiting class in bound the Generals will look to continue their success. Buck and Claflin are two high-potential first-gen players that figure to start immediately for a high-powered offense, giving them plenty of opportunities to show the league their talents. 2. Manchester Lookout (367 adj. TPE) Freshman Class: WR Gabrijela Kazimira (109 TPE), RB Wayne Jackson (68 TPE), CB Triston Cluskey (68 TPE), WR Boris Trukov (68 TPE) - 313 total TPE Even despite a rough season last year, the Lookout have been able to bring in plenty of new talent to the team. Kazimira may be the shiny get in this class, but Jackson and Cluskey should both start from day one and get a great chance to develop with the team, and Trukov can work his way into the starting rotation fairly easily as well. If this group can stay dedicated, the future is bright in Manchester. 1. Athens Carnage (484 adj. TPE) Freshman Class: RB Lance Swift VI (126 TPE), KP Jimmy Hexadecimals (118 TPE), CB Stanley Yelnats (110 TPE), RB Eden Echo (110 TPE), RB Sadie Adams (88 TPE), WR Tyson White (86 TPE) - 638 total TPE Normally I'd think this would be bad luck, but I ranked Athens #1 in my ranking last season and it seemed to work, so I'm hoping for a repeat. Personally, I'm super excited about this recruiting class. We've got a lot of top-level talent to add to our team and to add to our LR, and also the highest earning first-gen user in RB Sadie Adams. Hopefully with these guys on board, the future of Athens football will be just as bright as the present. Thanks for reading! Let me know which freshman you're most excited to see on the field if you made it this far.

  17. My Season 37 EFL Power Rankings I didn’t do a power rankings last season, but I would have been both right and wrong. I probably would have put New York #1 and Minnesota #2, and during the regular season, both of those would have been solid picks. However, the playoffs are a different beast. Miami, who I probably would have put third due to an aging core, upset New York. And Seattle, who I probably would have had out of the playoffs, ended up winning the whole thing. All of that is to say: I have no idea what I’m doing here. But it’s fun to speculate anyway. Here’s my best guess for the EFL power rankings heading into the season, with a few holes and free agents left to be decided. 8. Los Angeles Reign: The rebuild is fully underway, and it’s working fairly well - particularly in the secondary. First round picks Stetson David and Blake Wilson will make for a strong defensive core of the future, and Rex Rider is a strong QB prospect. But with nobody for Rider to throw to, and very little in the linebacking corps, L.A. is still shooting for a number one pick. 7. Seattle Predators: Sigh. They’re really going to make me do this, huh? Look, the Predators overachieved relative to APE last season, and there’s always a chance that they’re going to do so again (particularly in a weaker West). But with no more Fourside, only four players above 350 APE (including zero in the secondary), and top players Marteau, Big and Norris being mostly MIA with respect to earning, I suppose I’m taking my chances putting them here. 6. Wisconsin Brigade: The good news: An aggressive FA market could net them players like linebacker Martillo Táctico and tight end Sphyrna Lewis. The bad news: If you have the $10M to win the bid on Táctico, it probably says something about your depth. The linebacking corps + Cutthroat’s playmaking will keep them in games, but Maple and the rookie Pikachu are still a bit too raw for me to consider them a real threat. 5. San Francisco Frenzy: They’ve made some trades over the offseason to stock up for the future. But the good news for San Francisco fans is, in a weaker West, they still have the pieces to contend. Algren may be really feeling his age, but Firpo has developed into a true #1 option. Moon is still around as the backbone of the secondary, with Makaratt looking solid as well. Ivanov and Backer are an above average LB duo. I don’t think they have the depth to be a title contender, but they’ll be in games. 4. Toronto Skyhawks: Luck of the draw doesn’t help them here - if the Skyhawks were in the West, I’d probably be calling them a playoff team. But regardless, I think this will be a much improved Skyhawks team from what we’ve seen in recent seasons. Grey, Kentucky and Taylor are a formidable backbone to a defense, Isaac’s looking like a future MVP candidate, and I really like the Dusty Wilson addition to the offense. I wouldn’t be shocked by a 8-10 win season. 3. Miami Neptune: By pure APE, the Skyhawks probably have the Neptune outpaced. But I know better than to count out Miami at this point. Carswell is a pretty washed up QB, but you don’t need much when you’re throwing to Colt and Kirkland. Snark has developed into an LBotY candidate, and Meatball’s gotten CBotY consideration. And what really sets them apart for me is depth: 12 players above 440 APE at current count. They’re always in contention, and I don’t see why that’d change now. 2. Minnesota Frontier: I’m very scared to jinx anything, especially after last season’s playoff collapse. But by pure talent, Minnesota has a contender. The secondary may be the best in the league with Mac Suibhne, Newsome and Dvorsky, re-signing Colt was clutch to shore up their front seven alongside Malinpa, and this could be the season Lunatia takes a leap to being a top-flight QB. Losing Empire hurts, but the rookie RB Bumper is a solid replacement. All the pieces are here - but can they put them all together for the first time? 1. New York Herd: The Herd probably think they should have had it last season. They very well could this year after a one season delay. Everett is probably the MVP favorite, given his bevy of weapons with Wilinsky, Kolisi and the still-dangerous veteran Olaf. The defense is aging, to be sure, but Snicket, Dillinger and Farmar can still get it done. Isaac in his second year really bolsters that secondary as well. The rest of the linebacking corps worries me a bit, but every team has holes - and the Herd have fewer to me than any other team in the league.

  19. @import url('https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Special+Elite&display=swap'); @import url('https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Cedarville+Cursive&display=swap'); Dear Reader, I have received several letters from curious readers wondering about why a certain unhelpful banker named Arthur Poe has started playing in the ECFA. I responded back to these readers begging them to stop reading my work and to find something more pleasant to read instead. But they have ignored my advice and continued sending me letters, so I have decided to put the speculation to rest. I will include an article down below that was recently published in the Daily Punctilio. The Daily Punctilio is a newspaper that is known for publishing many inaccurate articles and struggling to get basic facts correct. But I feel that they are better equipped than me to explain Mr. Poe's train of thought. ----- Local Banker Takes Up a Career of Football Readers of the Daily Punctilio may recognize the name Arthur Poe. Mr. Poe was a very competent banker who helped manage the case of the Baudelaire Orphans (now know as the Baudelaire Murderers after their murder of Count Omar). Now Poe is taking up a second career as a football player and it turns out this may actually be linked to the Baudelaire case. We have taken a statement from him about his reasons for joining the ECFA: "I have been hearing disturbing rumors that Count Olaf may actually be alive and playing football in the EFL. I believe these rumors to be incorrect as I was personally able to identify Count Olaf's dead body in the Village of Fowl Devotees after the Baudelaires were accused of murdering him. I also personally interviewed the EFL player named Count Olaf during his rookie season and was able to conclusively determine that he is a totally different person who simply happens to share the same name and physical appearance. However my supervisor at the bank recently brought up a disturbing possibility. What if the football player named Count Olaf lied to me? What if he is the same Count Olaf as the notorious villain? But this outcome made little sense to me. I am very skilled at detecting when people are lying to me and I do not think even a notorious villain like Count Olaf would be able to fool me. However, my supervisor is still mad at me for the times that Count Olaf managed to escape from my detection before and has insisted that I look in to the matter further. But there was a bigger issue with this theory. Count Olaf is dead. I identified his body myself and the Baudelaires are on the run for murdering him. However, I did some further research and stumbled upon a shocking revelation. A man named Lemony Snicket is also playing in the EFL. This is the same name as the author whose death was previously reported by the Daily Punctilio. This is very peculiar if two supposedly dead men are playing in the same football league. And this brought me to my new theory: is the EFL bringing people back from the dead to play football? This would mean that this league has developed the technology to revive people from death, which would be a major scientific breakthrough. If I was able to find this technology, I would be considered a hero and it might even get me a promotion at the bank. So for the time being, I have decided to push aside some of my work helping orphans at the bank in order to focus on the more important priority of investigating these rumors by launching a football career of my own so that I will be able to enter the EFL and take a closer look. Most likely I will determine that these rumors are false and that this is a totally different Count Olaf as I expected, but it is also possible that I could be the one who helps find a cure for death." These are inspiring words from such a prominent banker. We wish Mr. Poe well on his quest to play football and hopefully find a way to bring people back from the dead. Though we should mention that the Daily Punctilio previously reported that the notorious villain who has died was actually named Count Omar, so we have no reason to believe that he has any connection to the football player named Count Olaf. Nonetheless, we wish Poe success in his football career. He is off to a strong start with a performance of 1696 rushing yards and 15 rushing touchdowns on a 13-1 Roswell Encounter team in his freshman season in the ECFA. Arthur Poe will certainly be an interesting player to keep an eye on in the coming seasons. ----- For any readers who did not want to subject themselves to reading an article from the Daily Punctilio, I can summarize the basic message is that Mr. Poe is misguided and is unlikely to do anything useful in helping to bring about the arrest of Count Olaf. Mr. Poe means well, but a jar of mustard probably also means well and would probably do a better job of helping us to bring Count Olaf to justice. I will continue my own mission, but am continuing to make a frustrating lack of progress despite now playing on the same team as Count Olaf. And as for the readers in the audience, I can only hope that you will do your part by choosing to read a happier Player Brand next time instead. With all due respect, Lemony Snicket Lemony Snicket

It's a new season, and as you can see we have saw some players come and some players go. But last year we were a scared team who was young and dumb. The time for that is over. WE will be the only ones doing the scaring. We have evolved into a team that commands respect. We have GOTW against a tough team in the Athens Carnage, a tough team that won the championship last year. Let's start the year Savage yeah? Let's get it S37 Savage City Wraiths!

  35. Coming from a neighborhood filled with violence nothing came easy. From a young age, Keno was subject to seeing death and gangs. His father introduced him to the game of football and he soon fell in love. By his Freshman year he was playing for the Nashville Jayhawks. He played the Wide Reciever position and was quickly put on the bench. The team was filled with starpower to its root, the chances of him starting were slim to none. He rode the bench for the majority of his Freshman year, until his coach informed him that there was a corner back position opening and he encouraged him to switch. In just 2 games, Keno racked up 3 Interceptions including a Pick 6. It was clear coach made the right choice. By his Sophmore Year, his parents had divorced and he was going through a lot mentally. He began the first 2 games of the season with 4 dropped interceptions and was quickly shamed. Was his Freshman year a fluke? Quite possibly, but he turned it around. In the 3rd game of the season, the game everyone can agree was and will always be his best, Keno recorded a outrageous 4 Interceptions and 3 Pick Sixes. His team won 47-3. It only went up from there, with Keno establishing himself as a Ranked CB by the end of his Sophmore year finishing with 11 INTs. His Junior Year, and so many setbacks. His coach unexpectedly kicked him off of the team, reason was disclosed. He was forced to transfer schools and was deemed ineligible for the season, forcing him to sit out of the season and work on his game. While home, he witnessed his father die in an unexpected drive by shooting which left him devastated. He was unsure of what to do with his life. Would he continue to pursue the game that his father introduced him to...? By his Senior Year, he made his decision. He would play to honor his dad. For the new Memphis Sharks he was true lockdown. Only allowing 1 Cacth Per Game and racking up 6 INTs to go along with it. He was the true CB1, and again before the playoffs was struck with a setback. This time an suspension, he was, "seen" smoking weed on school campus and somehow was found with weed in his system. His year ended and many offers were pulled, where will he be left to go. Find out.

  36. Two amazing high-school prospects, and they just happened to share the last-name. Actually, they just happened to be identical twins. The Muncy Twins seemingly had everything going for them at some point in time, but eventually everything went into a downward spiral that it looks like neither of them will ever be able to escape. And why is that? What led to the eventually downfall of two possible elite talents in the EFL. Welcome to EFL 30 for 30. Ethan and Nathan Muncy out of highschool had prospects noticing them. They had practically everything you wanted. Girls, Scholarships, Stats, whatever. Ethan was throwing the balls, Nathan was catching them (until then he switched to a defensive player, but in hindsight that was an unimportant part to his career). They both went on to play for the same ECFA team, where this would start their eventually demise of problems. Reports came out that the Muncy Twins had "no work ethic, no desire to really even compete. All they want it is to hit on women and drink." and this would eventually catch up to them in some sort of fashion, of course. Being barely any TPE or really having any skill, they would go on the field and do absolutely nothing of productive manner for the team they played for, and although they remained there for the 4 seasons, it obviously became an easy scratch-off duo for EFL Scouts who didn't want to try and take a chance on the polarizing players that were the Muncy Twins. And honestly, who could blame them? There was no overall message that showed that either of them even cared to play football anymore, or maybe that passion was never even there. That's just another "What If" in a weird story of individuals. They've been in the EFL for a decent length now, but not too long, but there has never been any opportunity for either of them. They've simply tried to keep a job, but they've entered Free Agency multiple times now because no matter what, they cannot seem to get along with anyone in the locker room. Multiple allocations have started to circle around them about possible offenses they have, and hell at this point it wouldn't surprise if they have search warrants for their arrest, but we're just gonna try to look right on past something like that for my sake. The Muncy Twins will go on to live as the worst brother duo in the entire history of the EFL, and I do believe that cold-heartedly. Only one of them has a job, which is Nathan, who, let's be honest, is probably going to get cut at any point of time now because his talent simply is not there to compete with the overwhelming competition of the great EFL players out there. It's an unfortunate story that these two have, and their paths will more than likely never be fixed. A miracle would be needed for them to ever recover and come back in the league to be anywhere near a competent player, but it seems like a possible effort is being made from both of the brothers, and hopefully a career for them is still in the realms of a possibility.
