Mercury 2019: Round 18 - Team selections 3 months 6 days ago #1

Mercury
The second last game of the HomeNaway commences at Adelaide over this Friday night which means your team has to be submitted to this thread by 5:20pm 5:40pm WA time on Friday.



Round 18 - The Danger Round


So let us put aside two games: 391 v Hypen and Moppy v FunBeanMan. The latter as the result is inconsequential, the former because Hypen has disappeared and the Collusions will waltz their way to victory. And now for those games that matter; and boy, do they matter!

Biz v Blocker
WillsieAir is a game and points safely ensconced in the top four, but lose this week and that cushion is gone. Biz can shape the eight by shooting Blocker down and I reckon the Stars are just in the mood to do so.

The Colonel v Cookie
The Commandos are new to the DuFFLe this year and have been admirable in their inaugural efforts. Warm fuzzies, however, won’t cut it when the competition turns nasty and Cookie is just two points below the Colonel. If Cookie wins, the Ingredients are in the eight and the Commandos are out. High stakes indeed.

Slammo v FD
Slammen’s Men are in form. The Rashers have been a model of consistency so you can bet they will put up a solid score. Slammo has to not only be competitive, his team has to be superb to knock off FD’s Rashers. If Slammo wins, finals are assured. If FD wins, she locks in the double chance.

Straddo v Oos
Oos can beat Straddo. But will the Satin Knights score enough to defeat the Souls - probably not; but they could. If the Souls lose, they risk the chance of dropping out of the eight.

Polly v The Captain
The Jokers must not take the Hooley Dooley’s lightly. With a fit team, Polly has a side to defeat anyone and the Captain cannot afford to lose touch with the top four. A real danger game.

PK v Nelson
The Knight Riders cannot make it to the finals but they can bring down Nelson’s dreams. Nelson would dearly love to get the double-chance for the Glenmorangie DuFFLe Finals Series and to do so they better bring their A-Game otherwise the Riders will make them pay dearly for any underestimation.

Alvin v MattyT
This is mirror-image comment to PK v Nelson. The Buccaneers has to perform to defeat El Primero, because MattyT is not going to lay down for Alvin. To be fair, however, Nelson can afford to lose on of the remaining two games as they are safe in the top four.

My second last chance at pulling us up off the relative bottom of the ladder - I've got the blunderbus locked and loaded:

HOOLEY-DOOLEYS
Rnd 18

BACKS: D. TUCKER; B. MAYNARD.
MIDS: P. CRIPPS; B. HILL; MIKEY.
FWDS: J. BRUCE; T. PAPLEY
RICK: OL' BATTERED MAMMERYFORD

Int: A. BRAYSHAW; D. TALIA; C. WUNDERGARTENER; B. SMITH.

In all honesty I've checked out the team matchups, the game locations, the weather and the recent form of the players. In the end it's a crapshoot - pure cat lady intuition is all that it comes down to.

So, good luck and good hunting to all of you - especially FD4numbers, less so Capt Dazzlenuts and EXCLUDING that loudmouth yahoo Slammo.

As a kid I remember consistently hoping that Wiley Coyote would finally get that aggravating Roadrunner twit by his scrawny neck and kill him. It never happened and I
gave up on cartoons. Years later I began supporting Fremantle. Geezus - if there is a God in heaven looking over this game we all love, please let us thump those Eastern Swannies tomorrow and storm into an unbroken winning streak that takes us into the finals long enough to knock out those crosstown knobbers - after that, I couldn't care less.

Go Freo - just forget whatever RoLy says and win this game on Saturday.

I quite enjoy our head to head record Block so I'm happy to see it continue! I'll need it too as we're still a mathematical chance at finals and we'll keep that hope alive.

The 5 sides above us are 2 or less games ahead and with a healthy points for total, we only need them to drop 1 or 2 of the final 2 games. We'll be keeping the pressure on till the end (or until Block takes it away from us)!

SoS Superstars
B: Stack (tiger), Kelly (crow)
M: M Crouch (crow), Shiels (hawk), Murphy (blue)
F: Hawkins (cat), Mackay (blue)
R: Marshall (saint)
I: Viney (demon), Jones (demon), Aliir (swan), Weideman (demon)
Nathan: When did you get balls?
Simon: I've always had balls you've just never seen them.
Nathan: That's the gayest thing I've ever heard.
