Goblin teams are much like Orc teams, except without the orcs. In the absence of their bigger mates to beat up the opposition, goblins resort to secret weapons like chainsaws and bombs to try to level the odds. That these often backfire and do as much damage to goblin teams as to their opponents is all part of the fun.
Goblin teams are perhaps less competitive in the GITP league than usual, thanks to the scrupulous honesty of referees in the league, who refuse to take bribes not to send off goblin players caught committing fouls or smuggling secret weapons.
Goblin teams are one of the weakest and most challenging teams to play. Their players are cheap, weak and break easily. Goblins do, however, enjoy the biggest access to secret weapons and you will often see them deploying players with things from a chainsaw to a pogo stick. They also have the ability to employ two Trolls to help stiffen the team up on the line of scrimmage, as well as giving the threat of a one-turn touchdown.
As menioned, the Goblins are weak, have low armor and break easier than most players if you penetrate that armor. Their secret weapon players that are spotted are often seen on the pitch and tend to get sent off and Trolls aren't known for being reliable. They are fun to play, but are also difficult. Goblin teams are known for giving bribes to referees so they can keep their weapons on the pitch, but due to the referee guilds in the GITP league, are always turned back into the league and never accomplished. Luckily, players are cheap enough to be able to have a full bench of substitutes.
