This Week in Milford

September 30, 2019

C’mon Zebra!

Filed under: actual action, Coach Kaz, football, Tilden — nedryerson @ 5:44 am


The word has spread through the Valley Conference. Milford has a hotshot running back named Chance Macy. Chance has a target on his back heading into the match at Tilden.

Detective Kaz is still working on an investigation into the full story behind Chance Macy, but for now it’s Coach Kaz looking out for Chance. Tilden players are taking aim at Chance, THUD!ing him and taking cheap shots. Oh the humanity.

I wonder if this is “too much”.

Are the teams in formation in panel 1? Is 53 of Tilden hanging around in Milford’s backfield? The Zebras are really not paying attention.


  1. Is this time for Chance to finally go psycho, or will that take a second dirty shot?

  2. Those Tilden bastards are bad dudes. How dare they harass our hero. How come his teammates don’t come to his defense? Maybe because he didn’t come to the party.

  3. P4: “…this your last warning coach….one more word outta’ you, and you’re gone…”

  4. The hot shot lawyer from Chicago can handle this.

  5. Wait, so Chance just fell over before panel 2? That looks less like a late hit and more like a cut block.

  6. #53 needs the Blind Side blocking treatment:

  7. Yelling “zebra” is the preferred way to guarantee you will not get a break on any close call. I’ve never seen a high school coach do it. You use the referee evaluation form instead.

    So, why is Chance getting gully-jumped? It has to be connected with Gil’s protective silence.

  8. With HD cameras just about everywhere, wouldn’t blatant cheap shots as depcited be brought up after the game? I’m seriously asking the question as at our high school likely had one camera watching the whole field and maybe a few folks with camcorders trained on their kids.

  9. Tomorrow, Chance goes batshit-berserk and violently twists 53’s helmet off and proceeds to beat him into a coma with it and then sez “…sorry, dude…I slipped…”

  10. There is precedent for something really violent like that happning with the Herc the Mauler story so…. stay tuned!
