This Week in Milford

Milford is up Shit Creek

First of all – sorry for my delinquincy yesterday– combination of busy day and lack of motivation to do this storyline.. but I’m back today so here goes.

So here’s what we have so far:

  1. Tiki Jansen transfered from another school, played cornerback the first game, and is now the new safety, replacing ..?
  2. Sam Finn is the best punter but they cant find another long snapper so he’s it.
  3. Freddy Malouf was the punter the first game and is out, replaced by #4.
  4.  Mike Filion, who is also the starting QB and will give punting a try.
  5.  Joe Bolek, former competent punter somewhere who doesnt want to play but may try.

And we’re only in Week 2!!

So we may possibly have 3 different guys punt in 3 games, if Fillion is bad and Bolek suits up next week. And Punter # 4 would be Finn in Week 4; at this rate the game would be in November.

Anyone else roaming the hallways they can ask? Good God almighty. Its so laughable it makes me cry. They might as well put a huge sign on the wall:


Holy crap.

All this time Finn is the guy to do it but the dildos cant find another long snapper! Jesus, have the damn regular center snap during practice and you’re good to go. How much time are we gonna spend on this assinine situation? What the hell are they doing during practice? We already broached the idea of a soccer player helping out but its fallen on deaf ears. 3 morons sit in front of a computer and marvel at the new ‘software’ but they dont have a damn brain between them!

I’m figuring the final answer is, yep, Tiki Jansen. But god the taffy pull to get to it. 5 punters in 1 season! And they have so many other issues besides this one. If theyre anywhere near a solid team, the punter wouldnt matter much anyway.

To the strip: Love how Jansen the new safety is playing 50 yards behind everyone else. I guess Gil said defend the goal line no matter where everyone else is. Doh.

Another idea if Fillion is half decent at punting is trying a quick kick from the regular formation once in a while when theyre in 3rd and very long. But no way do they think of that one. It actually works most of the time because nobodys back that far on defense for the kick if theyre playing a normal dime.

I’m going out on a limb and saying Milford will have more punters then victories this year. Any takers?






  1. Hey Rob, does this mean I should go back and post the 10/5 strip for you?

  2. Freckles Filion weirds me out. Freckly kids went out of style when Mickey Rooney grew up Model A Mfnrdians, with their black hair, freckles & skull caps. should all back into the triffid field where they belong.

  3. Teenchy – tdrewhardin did the 10/5 strip and post yesterday. Nobody posted anything on 10/4 (Thursday) for whatever reason, so I put the 10/4 comic strip in with tdrews post so all the strips are up. You can add your own thoughts on the 10/5 strip if you want. Or write about the Thursday strip. .I dont know who regularly does Thursdays but the last 2 weeks it was tdrewhardin (just looked it up).I was just very tired Friday night and wasnt up to it. I guess we’re a little shorthanded. If todays strip was already up I wouldve just skipped the week. But I had more time today. Hope that was ok with you.

  4. No worries Rob. I had swapped Thursday and Wednesday with tdrew a few weeks ago so that he wouldn’t have to do back-to-back posts. I swapped a Saturday with him during the golf arc too. I was starting to think it wasn’t fair to the rest of my fellow bloggers that I got to wrap up each arc. I think it’d be a good idea for me to swap off Saturdays with you and Ned too as we get closer to the end of a season.

    On topic: this is the fourth different face we’ve seen on Filion. If only Gil and Kaz put as much care into their special teams as they did in chalking the school name into the end zone. If my own high school experience is any example, they probably pulled some players out of health class to do it for them.

  7. Getting back to the topic, Gil’s awful coaching couldn’t be displayed better than in panel three. Way to build the guy up before you send him in to the lions, Gil…

    Oh, and for those who have better things to do on a Sunday morning than google Tates Creek High, I am here to inform you that the Mudlarks are playing the Commodores.

  8. I’m betting that the other side of the sign in P1 is also blank.

  9. Or…… Gil could do what a lot of coaches are doing — go for it on fourth down except in very adverse circumstances. And if you have a very sucky punter (or no punter), the odds are even stronger in favor of going for it. And in this case, the Omniscient Narrator Box tells us that a drive has stalled, which means the Mudlarks must have decent field position. Don’t punt — go for it! What’s the worst that can happen? Marty Moon has a shitfit?

  10. […] He’s a safety! […]
