This Week in Milford

Violent Retribution: The Milford Way Of Resolving Differences

Filed under: actual action, football, lessons learned, Milford Idiots — timbuys @ 8:00 am


So, I guess the refs don’t call taunting in the Valley Conference. Nevertheless, I suppose it’s good to see that whenever a girl is threatened, big strong men will come and save her. Wait, that’s a terrible lesson to learn. I’m not sure that it’s worse than giving your daughter a non-certified pre-owned Jeep Compass to drive but…

Is panel three a mid-week cliffhanger? As goes Milford, so goes the nation and all of that? Tune in tomorrow to find out!




  1. Well, this won’t escalate…

    I’m not being sarcastic, I’m pretty sure this won’t escalate even though it definitely would in real life. I’m not sure the officials are at this game.

  2. GT: I’m seriously wondering if Rubin has the slightest fucking idea about the concept of American Football, and how it’s supposed to be played? And are Milford players ever called for penalties? I mean like EVER? I do like how last week set it up that Heather was going to be some anonymous “one of the guys” with no special treatment to the point where they even changed her name and this week it’s like a bunch of worker bees protecting their queen…

    Let’s forget this strip and read some real-life stories that don’t suck:

    Was there ever any reason give as to why “H.E.” didn’t start playing earlier, given that girls playing football isn’t even a big deal anymore?

  4. Hey, what happened to Marty Moon’s smokin’ hot take on The Girl Tee? Was that just a cruel feint by Rubin?

  5. Great point, John S. Walters! We were led to believe there was “unwanted attention”, but we saw nothing but Marty in his “studio” reading the paper. C’mon Rubin, we need hot takes! We need unhinged Moon’s hot takes!

  6. You can’t knock the crap out of anyone in uniform? I thought that was the idea and appeal of football? It used to be. Jack Tatum is rolling over in his grave. If your alive Jack, I apologize.

  7. JT, speaking of Jacks: NT’s awkwardly splayed tackler is wearing #58, famously worn by someone who once suggested that quarterbacks should wear dresses. NT #58 appears to be grabbing his crotch in reply, whereupon The Secret Pelwecki has begun to flip the bird in P2.

  8. Oh, Brother, now we have 2/3 of the Hanson Brothers, when they’re in the off-season from the Charlestown Chiefs, taking matters into their own hands as a desperate attempt to spice up the frail plot. Steve Hanson must have been academically ineligible or he’d be in on the beatdown. Not that that would stop him, his being a goon, but Gil and Kaz were there to keep a hooligan in street clothes from joining in the fun. Awayyyyyyyy we go.

  9. What is this Milford obsession with vigilantism/getting even, where everyone is their own judge and jury? We see it every football season from coaches and/or players, Big Barda *broke* a dude’s jaw last year (and didn’t even sit out a game) and even this past baseball season was nothing but a five-month vigilante campaign against Barry Bader (granted he brought some of it on himself, but still)… Does legally blocking a linebacker on his duff really ‘send a message’? Do these two mooks think that linebacker isn’t going to hit Heather (or anyone else, for that matter) for the rest of the game? Shouldn’t Heather’s response (in true Milfordian Tradition) be “Thanks, but I can handle myself out there — You just worry about your role”??

    Shit like this gets old…

  10. Just a note to posters: If you include more than one or two links in your post, it will likely go into moderation. If that happens, your post won’t appear right away as, while I normally have a very flexible schedule, my employer generally doesn’t have much interest in me moderating posts during the day.

  11. The 3 tight end power sweep, like the Atlanta Falcons…

  12. T. Drew Hardin – Pelwecki’s flowing locks, Darwin’s dopey camera mugging from last season, and the general lack of thick glasses in this strip since Steve Luhm and Howard Gourwitz had me thinking of a different set of Hanson brothers

  13. First of all, guy on left should be talking to the LB on the ground, not to his own teammate. They finish each others sentence, which looks lame and obviously pre-arranged, like its a comic strip or something. (Oh yeah it is) I would call unnneccesary roughness on # 58 for going after a defenseless player (Heather) obviously without the ball. Then the next play would be clean as we dont see the context of the play, IE who had the ball and the point-of-attack. But if the ref policed the action as he should have, then there’s no need for retribution the next play.
