Mercury 2019: Finals Week #1 - Results 2 weeks 5 days ago #1

Mercury
Just a reminder, on Friday Sep 6 some of us will be at the Brass Monkey to watch whichever final is scheduled for that night and share a beverage or two. I’ll be there for bounce down.



Bowing Out


Farewell to…
  • The Colonel - mighty fine inaugural season
  • Slammo - always throwing 100% at the game
  • Polly - always pens something to keep us laughing
  • Hypen - Good to have you back, sir
  • PK - With luck, could have been so much better
  • Moppy - No one is taking the 2016 trophy off the Chooks
  • MattyT - The DuFFLe premiership proves so elusive


Congratulations to Blocker and The Captain who have taken out the Qualifying finals and will sit back and watch the Semis to see who they will face in the Preliminaries. Straddo Souls proved too good for the Commandos and Slam couldn’t muster enough points to defeat the impressive Dreamers.

In the Richmond Cup, 391 moves straight into the Cup Final whereas Cookie, FunBeanMan, Biz and Oos get to fight it out across the next two weeks.

Bizkit
God damn Oos, where was that in the regular season?!

The top 3 scorers for the round are from the Richmond cup. It may be the most competitive bottom finals in DuFFLe history.
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.

So I should’ve put one of my best defenders forward, one of my forwards in defence and left Dangerfield out altogether. How stupid of me!

Oh well, at least I have another week.... : /

PS Well done Captain!

Now if everyone left can just repeat their scores for the next few weeks, that'd be great.

Thanks for the game FD.
I only got over the line due to Danger only scoring 16 as a mid against Freo - insane, but I'll take it.

Good luck to the remaining finalists - I'll be sitting back watching and hoping I get a ruck back in 2 weeks time.

Oos - awesome score!

To the departing coaches thanks for the matches and banter throughout the year.
Hopefully see you at the Brass Monkey - I felt a bit shy about going last year, but brought along a mate had a really enjoyable evening. Hope to see a few of you there, especially you Slammo!

Congrats Blocker and the rest of the winners, commiserations to the losers especially those that were knocked out.

The Buccaneers were well down on form in that round but luckily have a second chance so hopefully will be back up for the next one.

Drinks at the Brass Monkey sounds good to me.

Sept 6th? I need a beer now!

Mercs - and the rest of you lot - are you up to a pint at the Brass Monkey this Friday night for the GWS v WeePoos match? The Yeti wants to meet you blokes (and FD 4 numbers) as well and he won't be around in September. Call it a warm-up before the end of season one.

How about it - you beaut this post if you're up for it and I'll let Yeti know.
