Well, the commissioner has heard your cries for mercy. To simplify things, I'm eliminating Rule #3. If you complete 5 consecutive unblocked passes, that's a goal, no shot required. String together as many sets of 5 as you can. To get possession, you'll need a successful block. Your rules, in layman's terms, are as follows.
- Pass to your teammates.
- Block the opposing team's passes.
- Get rid of the ball within a minute.
|Jersey Bourdélots||Guernsey Ormers||Alderney Sots|
|Spank||Hideo Nomo||Franklin Stubbs|
|Steve Sax||Karina||Steve K|
|Mr. F||Fred's Brim||Fernie V|
Each team will play each other twice. Wins count for 3 points, Draws count for 1 point, Losses count for nothing. The teams with the most points after all games are played will advance to the championship. In case of a tie, goal differential will be used.
