Round 19 commences with Collingwood hosting Richmond at the MCG this Friday evening at 7:50pm. This means your team is to be submitted to this thread on Friday by 5:40pm, WA time.




Complacency Is Not Inherited


Let us put aside the games that don’t matter much this week.
  • Hypen needs to finish on a good note and MattyT wants that very much too. Both squads have had a season to forget so a win in the final HomeNaway would bring just a glimmer of pride into one franchise. El Hombres to do just enough.
  • Now at the top of the DuFFLe Nelson is battling FD at Merton Place. If the Rashers lose, they still stay in the top four and if Nelson doesn’t salute the flag, the Dreamers will still play finals. The Rashers have struggled of late so I’m picking the Dreamers for Round 19.
  • Blocker is also secure at the top of the ladder and the outcome against Oos won’t matter. In any case, WillsieAir should be too strong for the Satin Knights.
  • The Captain also has a top four locked in and losing to Biz’s Stars will just dent the Jokers’ pride. Biz will pull out a big one, but not big enough to defeat the Captain.


Now for the games that really matter…

Polly v Straddo: If Straddo loses against the Hooley Dooley’s, the Souls probably have enough of an aggregate points score to hold off any slip out of the top eight but, geez, you wouldn’t want to take a chance in the last game before finals. The Souls would be stupid to underestimate the enigmatic Dooleys.

391 v Alvin: A loss to the Buccaneers will mean nothing, but a loss to the Collusions will probably see them fall out of the top eight. 391 needs to blow the Buccaneers out of the water.

The Colonel v Moptop: Another game where it matters nought to one team, but matters a great deal to the opposition. If the Chooks lose - oh well. If the Commandos lose, their slim chance of leap-frogging into the eight is gone in a puff of smoke.

Slammo v PurpleKit: Again… If PK loses, so what. If Slammo loses, his Men could miss the finals too.

FunBeanMan v Cookie: This is why Slammo, 391 and Straddo are worried. Cookie is most likely to have a good win against the Fungis and for them to play finals they need either Slammo or 391 to lose. There is another way in for the Ingredients to make their way into the eight; if Straddo loses and the Ingredients can make up fifteen points in aggregate score, they could overtake the losing Souls.

Straddo 2019: Round 19 - Team Selections 1 month 4 weeks ago #2

Straddo
I've always thought the fortunes of the souls closely followed those of the Dockers. What position were we in before the slide down the ladder started a few weeks back? Oh dear....

On the bright side, I think I should be safe in the coach of the year calculations.

I don't care about any other result. But this one. The working class Labor boys against the Matty T rich boys. This is the DuFFle's derby and blood will be spilt.

Bizkit 2019: Round 19 - Team Selections 1 month 3 weeks ago #9

Bizkit
I'm not going to sugar coat it, we're absolutely devastated to be missing out on a chance at the big one so early in the season. A finals position has effectively been a birthright for us over almost 2 decades in the DuFFLe and to have that taken away stings.

We have one game left to take out our frustration and hurt. We're gonna go big.

One more win required for the minor premiership but I still remember the Buccaneers last game against 391 resulted in a 1 point loss.
I'm not greedy, I'd be stoked with a 1 point win this time.

pollyanna 2019: Round 19 - Team Selections 1 month 3 weeks ago #13

pollyanna
Ok, here's how my season has gone - one example:

Brodie Smith (Adelaide) - for a while I've been searching around for a Crow that would assume the role of Jake Lever. My reasoning was simple - you don't change the way your defence is set up if it's going good, you just get someone to step up and fill the hole. Last year I thought it might be Jake Kelly, it wasn't. This year I reckoned on Brodie Smith - given his preseason form all the signs were there. But he was a spud, no other way of putting it - I tried him a few times but his best position seemed to be on the bench. Then Pike throws him on the forward wing and Mr Potato snags 31 disposals, 7 marks, 4 tackles and kicks 3 goals 1 behind. He played a blinder but he had earned his spud reputation by me.

Yeah, the whole bloody season has been like that - good players acting like spuds, spuds acting like Brownlow contenders right out of the blue, champions wimping out with a slight tag and inconsistent dunderheads putting on a show sitting on the pine.

I'm not alone this year, what a horror season.

THE DE-ROLLICKING ENIGMATIC POTATOHEADS

BACKS: TALIA; Angus BRAYSHAW.

Int: Brodie Potatohead Smith; Braydon Potatohead Maynard; Tom Potatohead Papley; Josh Spudnik Bruce.

All the best Straddo - always a good contest - and to everyone still hoping for a playoff berth. OH, EXCEPT SLAMMO!
