The question on the minds of many in the Old World has been, "What happened to the Fighting Cockerel Cup?" Now, breaking news just out of the Moot has revealed that most of the top Stunty Leeg officials have been arrested and charged with multiple infractions, including bribery, collusion, and falsifying food allowance claims. Even the seemingly untouchable Sipp Pigblatter was dethroned from his lofty position at the head of the Leeg. Details are scarce, but it is believed large bribes have become the norm to secure a Stunty Major, not the lest of which is the purported huge paid by the Goblins to host the Exploding Cup. It all came to a head when the player who was supposed to be the prize for the Exploding Cup champions, Hobgoblin Assassin Scarlath 'Back Scratcher' Scarly, ran off with the tournament prize money, the bribes, and half of the Drachenfels Coachmen's cheerleaders. At this point accusations began to fly, investigations were started, and Pigblatter's empire began to crumble.
Where does this leave the Stunty Leeg? Well, aside from missing the FCC this year, not much different than before. The Leeg has, and will likely always be, chaotic and mismanaged. An interim staff of Gnomes has been brought in to audit and restructure and the Stunty Cup
will push ahead. The prizes are presently unknown, and may be less than what they were in the past, but the glory of hoisting the trophy will still be the same.
So bring your team, and be ready for the madness that is the Stunty Cup
. Coming September 2nd to a pitch near you.
