Yes, the Castor Raiders neutered the Dogs, gelded the Colts, emasculated the Emus, caponated the Bantams,sterilized the Steers, fixed the Foxes and demasculinated the Devils. With "ugh their ugh eunuch way of thspeaking, ugh, after the ugh, games, ugh, on-air, ugh and to the ugh media", the Castor Raiders were a force to be reckoned with. The secret of their success is that none of them had ever been cut from the team!
