There's no doubt that Commissioner Lorenz Laya favors a team in his own league. In fact, he is currently the head coach of the Verruckt Asylum Dwellers. Laya was part of the three championships they won in five years with the trio of Bosconovitch, Koch and Gasoldridge.

Minato Arisato’s declaration of the draft was prized by many. Though since he was Japanese, Laya wanted to select him with the 6th pick in the draft. The Five Thieves, however, had other plans. The Thieves stole Arisato away with the 4th pick. Furious at the announcement, Laya ordered that Five wouldn’t make the...
