GM Gravedigger arrives at the Scouting Combine, carrying an iPad and his cellphone. He nods at GM Kirk, finds a place to watch the action, and sits down, ready to take notes.

GM Franchise strolls into the Scouting Combine with a big grin on his face. He has his coaching staff in tow. He nods at Gooch, Digger, and Kirk before getting set up with his staff to watch the combine.

What's up everyone. Hopefully you all enjoyed vacations, long or short. Kirk, congrats on the run, it was a shame you couldn't pull it off.

GM TJ LOOKS TOWARDS THE FORMER APL TEAMS AND THEIR STAFFS

Welcome to the league gentlemen. Best of luck to you guys in your first seasons. I know I'm excited to see you  bring something to this league.

So, Franchise, not a bad offseason for you so far. I thought you'd have stopped jacking my roster after getting Christopher Allen, but you got Hunter too. Then Sullivan huh? What's next?

GM Franchise turns to GM TJ

"What's next? Right now next is the combine and then the draft. Let's see how much more chaos I can cause in the HIFL. I've already turned it upside down already, let's see what else I can make happen. Taking it one day at a time."

TJ, good seeing you too. At least someone from our division showed up for the Impact Bowl, I guess.

Don't suppose you plan on taking it any easier this season, do you?

...And Franchise, crazy stuff on Sullivan. Good on you, I guess.

Thanks Gravedigger. Good to know we have your support when you don't play us.

Hey, TSG, thanks. It was a helluva fight, but no, I'm not taking it easier. We got Seattle and Kansas City now, got to do the right thing and show them why the North West is the best.

BD, good to see you up and moving. Glad you're okay. When is your co-GM coming in? I'd like to talk about that potential deal.

Yeah, you got a point there. The new blood is going to make this even more interesting, to be honest. To be honest, I'm intrigued to see what Seattle does observe here at the combine, given we still don't know for sure who they're bringing from their APL squad to the HIFL.

GM TJ GETS UP AND WALKS OVER TO THE SEATTLE STAFF

Hey, Coach Graham, is it alright if I speak to Jerry, err, Coach Harris real quick? It's all kosher and won't take that long.

Hey, Jerry, wanted to congratulate you. I know you'd have probably wanted the OC spot in Oakland and we made a choice that wasn't you, which sucks. But I'm happy for you. I think you're going to do great in Seattle, Jerry.

A GIANT STRETCH LIMO ARRIVES TO ENTRANCE TO THE COMBINE. THE LIMO DRIVER GETS OUT AND OPENS THE DOOR, ALLOWING GM JON TO STEP OUT FOLLOWED BY THE DC COBRAS COACHING STAFF. HE TAKES A BREATH OF THE FRESH INDIANA AIR AND PROCEEDS INTO THE COMBINE. AS HE ENTERS INTO THE FACILITY, HE SHAKES MR. WILKINSONS HAND AND PROCEEDS TO THE GM AND COACHES AREA. HE GIVES A SUBTLE WAVE TO EVERYONE WHO HAS ALREADY ARRIVED BEFORE SETTING UP AT THE DESIGNATED DC COBRAS AREA.

A bit of an understated entrance there, Jon. I was expecting you to be carried in on the shoulders of DC fans or something. Congratulations on your second title. You're coming to my territory in the NE Division this season, though.

Eddie rolls in on a bike wearing his headphones. He parks it on a bike rack out front and chains it up. He pulls a banana and a granola bar out his pocket and resumes having breakfast as he enters the combine. With his satchel holding his paperwork and laptop hanging off his shoulder he's looking down at his cell phone and runs squarely into a mountain of a man. Eddie looks up as he notices GM Gravedigger. They exchange glares before breaking into cordial laughter. Eddie throws up a high five to GM digger and continues to the end of the field. Before he gets there he searches out GM Jon but notices GM Jon is already concentrating on his work and surrounded by his staff. GM Jon looks up as both men exchange nods. Eddie continues towards the back and sees his coaches are already there and set up ready to go. He approaches as he and his staff exchanges handshakes he begins to set up and gets to work.

GM Dazz makes his way into the combine with his coaches. He has a tablet in hand and a blutooth headset in his ear. He pauses on his way to the other GMs as Blitzer points something out to him. They seems to have a quick chat before Dazz moves on and leaves the coaches to do their thing.

Greetings gents. Congratulations on your second title Jon, an impressive achievement. I'm looking forward to going head to head this year. Same to you, Kirk. 16-0 is something else. Won't happen this year. So, have I missed anything good?
