Poor Losers? You Bet!
3 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The sheriff of Nottingham thinks he has the two best archers in the area and wants to prove it. His ulterior motive is to damage the reputation of the outlaws, knock their reputation down with the common folk.

The sheriff makes a substantial wager with a certain friend (at least, he thinks so) because he knows this guy will go get Robin and maybe Little John to compete and wants them humiliated. He also knows the two guys he has - imported "guns" from another town, are considered the best in England. The sheriff promises "immunity" for the outlaws for the day but you know how good his word is.....no good. Robin is a little leery, and you can't blame him. Nonetheless, despite his band's objections, he goes.

You figure Robin will win the archery contest because.....well.....he's Robin..... but if the sheriff tries to capture him afterward, how will he and his pals (Little John and Friar Tuck, LJ being the other archer and FT coming along before the banquet!) get out of that jam? Tune in and find out!
