Mercury 2019: Round 16 - Team Selections 3 weeks 1 day ago #1

Mercury
Round 16 commences Friday with Hawthorn v Collingwood at the MCG. Bouncedown is at 7:50pm so your team is to be submitted to this thread by 5.40pm WA time on Friday



With just four games of the HomeNaway remaining, Round 16 brings some crucial match-ups. But before we get to those, let's deal with the others. Polly hosts PK's Knight Riders down at Pickle Park and the unfathomable Hooley Dooleys have been in good form of late, so the Knights are going to be in trouble. Oos, too, is in a pickle as his satin Knights face the in-form-but-well-out-of-the-running Fungis. Home ground advantage will not save Oos.

The Buccaneers face off against the Colonel's Commandos. Alvin can ill afford to lose with so many quality sides sitting just below the Buccaneers on the ladder, and they face an in form Commandos. I think the Colonel will inflict a lot of damage and take the win. Similarly Straddo is in the eight but facing a well-credentialed team placed a few rungs below. El Primero will struggle to make the eight, but they can shape it. El Hombres will shake things up by defeating the Souls.

The Souls losing is music to Slammos ears as his Men really need some teams above them to falter. Unfortunately, the other part of the arrangement is for Slammen's Men to win, and that they cannot do this week. Blocker is too good. I think that The Captain will prove to be too good for 391's Collusions as well. This will lock in the Jokers for the finals and put the Collusions into a predicament.

Hypen has struggled lately and Cookie is very much hoping that the Pounders' woes continue. A win for the Ingredients this week will probably result in Cookie reclaiming a top eight spot. A top eight spot is a distant reward for the Stars, but one that will come sharply into focus if Biz can manage to defeat FD's Rashers. The Rashers have to get up to speed for Round16 as an average performance will see the Stars bringing home the bacon.

We end Round 16 with a real danger game. Nelson sits in fifth on the DuFFLe ladder and must keep winning to stay in the eight. Moppy, however, is dangerous. His Thundering Chooks have plenty of ability and are more than likely to cause a fair amount of movement on the rungs above.

The Souls are notoriously inconsistent so if you really don't want to help Slammen MattyT, the best thing would be to take chance out of it and name all your players out of position.

No self interest here, only trying to help =P^D

Alvin Prpl
Yep, I was just going to suggest playing your best midfielder in the ruck Matty, of course then you would have to fill that mid position, perhaps with one of your forwards etc....

Slammo is not going to be happy with you blokes!
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.

Slammo on a derby. Gaff-ie-y, Darling-ie-y, Sheed-ie-y, Hurn-ie-y.

Slime, one and all. This is your GF Slime-n, as you can't win the big one. And here it is again, for your viewing pleasure- last year's capitulation:

Willsie Aeroplane (195) defeated Slammen's Men (126.5) at Teh Blockerdrome

You don't want to be on the wrong side of an angry Slammo. I once heard that, ...

He killed three men in a bar, with just a pencil.
When the outlaw bikie gangs need to initiate a truce, they ask Slammo to organise it.
Slammo was Roger Ailes' favourite fixer.
When El Chapo needs help, he calls Slammo.

Seriously, don't poke the bear.

When the Boogeyman goes to sleep at night, he checks under his bed for Slammo.
