DC Unveils New Recruits; FAFFA Signings; Surprise Trade Announcement

The Secret Is Out!
[ *  *  *  *  *  *  * ]
WASHINGTON, DC - DC's press room was a little more crowded than normal Wednesday evening, when the press gathered to welcome the DC Conspiracy's newest members to the roster following the conclusion of FAFFA on Tuesday night. DC brought out all of their FAFFA signees, including those who signed after Round 1. DC brought in quite a hall. Seated in order of when they were signed was DS Tony Stark, K Jose Cortez, OLDL Ranando Bush, OLDL Jordan Westin, OLDL Travis Jefferson, QB Jamarco Angermeier, RBLB Mark Blevins, WRDB Paris Schroeder, DS Preston Street, OLDL Josh Salas, QB Tommy Maddox, RBLB Jack Stones, WRDB Anthony McDaniel and WRLB Dexter Walters.

Owner/GM Adam Beyer first approached the podium from behind the row of players. Next to where he was seated is Head Coach Steve 'The Jerk' Martin.

Beyer: "Wow, what a difference a year makes. Around this time last year we were kind of bored; we didn't really play in FAFFA at all and just decided to concentrate on doing us. We did okay *crowd chuckles*. But we decided we can, and must do better. Washington needs some winners, and we're taking it upon ourselves to provide them. To borrow a term from our local political insiders we did a post-mortem after the Cup game and we reached a couple conclusions. One, we needed to improve some of our fundamentals- namely tackling. Two, while we had the talent to win the game we didn't have the experience Texas did, and we think that's what separated us. Texas was a great team who had been there before; we were a great team that hadn't been there before. So we decided to get back into free agency this year to inject some new blood and fix those areas.

Look to each side of me; there is more playing years assembled here than I've been alive. Multiple Cup games won and lost on this stage today. Obviously anyone who can math knows not everyone here can make the main roster, but everyone here can contribute to this team and in our minds will be considered part of our team, even if not on paper. When we get to camp we plan to leverage this experience and get our young guys to absorb every drop of it. In regards to our second area, I want to bring up a few of these gentlemen specifically. Jordan, Ranando and Jack, get up here."

*Westin, Bush and Stones each join Beyer at the podium*

Beyer: "We knew after some struggles with top running teams that we needed to get better control over the running game when we're on defense, which meant getting better tacklers. Our guys were great about flying to the ball, but weren't guaranteed to end the play there. These guys were some of the best tacklers in their positions available; these guys will end those plays. Bush is someone who should see plenty of time on the field right away. Jordan [Westin] is not quite on that level overall yet, but will be with the support we have around him. Jack [Stones] here is the future of our Running Back/Linebacker position and should seamlessly transition into the lineup as he grows and Corey [Palso] begins to need more rest time. We didn't get everyone we wanted, but we got a great roster assembled for training camp and are qui-

*Martin interrupts Beyer at the podium and shows him a message on his phone*

Beyer: "Ladies and gentlemen, this is as good of time as any to announce that we just confirmed a trade with the league office and our Cup opponents in Texas. One thing we did not fully do in FAFFA is bring in another top-quality WRDB. Well we fixed that. They aren't here tonight, but we are elated to welcome back former Conspirator WRDB Achilles Byron! Joining him will be OLDL Jon Hollingsworth, who continues to bring in the increased fundamental skills that we focused on improving. I don't know about you guys, but I can't wait for camp to start. Have a great night everyone."

*Beyer and Martin conferred as they left the stage. The assembled players began to disperse, some talking to the press, others with each other, and a couple left the room.*
