    I took Grab because Danton was very fond of it on his DE team and I wanted to see how it works in practice.

    A Grab/Stand Firm (or Grab/Side-Step) player is great for setting up crowd pushes (especially when paired with a Frenzy piece), but I'm using this skill mostly to get rid of annoying side-stepers, of which there seems to be at least one in every team - and they tend to mark ball carriers a lot (or are ball carriers themselves).

    It also works pretty well with Jump Up, as the block after using Jump Up, is, well a block, not a blitz

    Two last matches of the season were pretty horrible for Cheap Girls (especially the last one, where a draw would be enough for 1st place finish). Lost both with zero TDs scored, zero completions and only 14 SPPs (2xMVP + 2xcas) earned across both games. Also, Killer Price got a -MA injury (Apo'ed from Dead). :(

    Finished second in the group. We'll see what happens next season, which will probably be the last one for this team, as my wife is increasingly pregnant and I am expecting our family to gain in numbers during season #16 :D. This likely means no time for Blood Bowl, at least temporarily, until situation stabilises somewhat.

    EDIT: Grab works pretty well against agility teams, but overall Stand Firm is probably a little bit more useful and I often regret not taking it.

    I will post bloodbowldigital screenshot sometime soon.
