    Apparently, the headdresses are like team uniforms. And, since there are 2 guys to a side, I hope he covered him on what are the tactics.

    Also, nice that the ref has on a modern striped zebra shirt, just like modern football refs. LOL

    I learn something from AO again, Zebras swim very well!

    Did anyone notice that if the Ref doesn’t move after he drops or throws up the ball that both guys are in a good position to whack him and he will be out like a light and then no rules will be enforced. the lefty – righty bit .

    What is Oop standing on? He seems to be looking down on the other players from a high vantage point.

    “Hope he has his club.”

    This is going to be one of those times when Alley, Mr. Oop to the cognoscenti, CAN"T find his club. Every other time, when he really doesn’t need it, the club just pops into his hand seemly from nowhere. But, when he really, really needs it, it’s nowhere to be found! Odd, isn’t it?

    The second panel looks like a high school prank gone really bad!

    NightGaunt is rolling right along. How long will Oscar work at learning what’s necessary to control the dinos? A day? 3 maybe? Does Alley take his Club with him? Hope so, he’ll need it!

    Larry’s got us on pins and needles with Alley in a steel box.

    The Bender’s have Alley at a strange angle in comparison with the rest of the players. hmmm, to generate interest? Could be.

    Good eye, David.

    One of the first things I was taught in art school (about a 100 years ago, but I’ve not forgotten) is how to design a drawing in proper perspective. Bender-hell-U-broker seems to have thrown all the rules out the window. If he completed this drawing to include all of Oop’s figure, including the part outside the panel, Oop would stand about 18’ tall.

    the Benders did an AWFUL job in perspective…………. even a 4 year old would do a better job in perspective

    Alley looks basically like he was with Ooola and not in the playing pitch

    Good Morning Benders and all. Happy 1st day of Autumn.
    So Alley is on a team. He definitely will need to take charge
    as Ichik is on his side.

    One player has his “paddle” in his right hand, the other in the left. It appears that the ball will go to Alley no matter which one hits it, or the guy holding the ball will take a nasty hit to this head!

    Good catch on the Bart mask, I have a feeling that it was just by accident, the Benders aren’t usually that clever but who knows?
