This is a battle that me and MGB did back at the start of January 2011 that I've meant to post for a long time. I finally was able to find all of the pictures and thought that given that the Superb Owl was yesterday, now would be a good time to post it. The battle in set in the future during the Superb Owl. As football became more and more violent, but as this improved viewership numbers and network ratings, The violence was actually encouraged. Eventually, points became incidental as the game became all about massacring the opposing team. Concussions soon became the least of everyone's worries as players donned flak vests and power armor and stormed onto the field with axes, chainsaws and assault rifles. I hope you enjoy reading this battle and I apologize in advance for some of the blurry pics, they were taken before I learned how to take better pictures with my camera.
