Breaking News
WillsieAir in Receivership

In 2010, Mr Blockerhall (CEO) came up with a plan to take on Bizkit's Superstars at its own game and much of the blame for WillsieAir's poor form following the advent of COVID-19 has been laid at the feet of Mr Blockerhall.

After the 2010 review, he pursued what he called his 'game change strategy' to take on Superstars with an aggressive push into securing ruckmen at the expense of midfielders and the millennial name change from the beloved Willsie Aeroplane to WillsieAir. He took the airline in a new direction which sparked an aggressive war with the Superstars unlike anything the DuFFLe had seen before.

Critics of Mr Blockerhall started saying that he did not build a well-balanced squad and the fight with Bizkit was going to end with whoever managed the statistics better - and no-one would beat the Superstars at that game. Mr Ooslumbird, a respected DuFFLe journalist said, "Look, stop trying to be like the Superstars because … the Superstars are great. You're never going to beat the Superstars at their own game".

When the announcement came this morning that WillsieAir had slipped into receivership, FD1016 immediately registered her interest in taking control of the ailing franchise. FD has a lot of experience in flying pigs and will be well-suited to refresh the once great brand that was Willsie Aeroplane.

In filing this story, we approached Mr Blockerhall for comment, but he had not replied by the time we went to print.

Bizkit 2020: Rounds 07/08 - Team Selection 1 week 2 days ago #2

Bizkit
The funny thing is, The Stars diverted from their midfield dominance strategy to focus more heavily on defense/attack the past few years like Blocker which has ruined the Stars.

We're finally back at the old strategy and coronaball is killing us now. A draft without Blocker taking all of our players was a blessing but this season is cursed.
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.

My big problem is I have to pick a side on Wednesday as Thursday sucks and I am away from any form of technology on that day.
May as well pick up the wooden spoon now (or NAGA as tthey say in golf.)

So Hg. If that bloke was bigger and more ugly, with a white beard, and less hair, he'd look like me. And with no lovely ladies around, of course.

So, I've spoken to the liquidator, drawn the support of the majority of the creditors, and am naming a side as part of a DOCA to bring the company back under administration, and ultimately trade my way out of this with skill, desire and the dedication and maturity of my squad. What's that? F#%%^#g Steele Sidebottom took an Uber and went on a tour of Melbourne's CoVID hotspots? THE [email protected]#%^#^g #$%% #$%% #^%[email protected]! @%$#^^# @&^&*&!

Great. Go on a trip out past Cue for a week, and get a draw with Biz with a robo-side. I guess at least I have a job.

Teh Willsies!

The Jokers bid a sad farewell to star back Jeremy Howe and interchange hopeful Luke Dunstan to LTI's.
Definitely a weaker squad with Ebert replacing Howe, and Dunkley gone for 6-8 weeks.
Hoping Selwood has a bunch of cheap possies in his 300th.

Jolly Jokers:
B: N Haynes, J McGovern
M: J Selwood, Shuey, Viney
F: Dixon, L Ryan
R: Gawn
I/C: J Kelly, J Lonie, B Ebert, B Ellis

Left out J Riewoldt
Injured/Not Selected: J Dunkley, P Ryder, B Preuss

Good luck all

Our best midfielder and forward are both out this week with whispers our ruckman could be joining them. This round is not looking good for the Stars. What it does do is give us the opportunity to try something different and I reckon this side could surprise on the weekend and bring a win or two home.

Sos Superstars
B: Docherty (blue), Aish (freo)
M: Gresham (saint), Dangerfield (cat), T Adams (pie)
F: T Walker (crow), J Elliott (pie)
R: Bellchambers (drug)
I: Jacobs (gws), Bruce (dog), Hopper (gws), J Martin (blue)
Left out: M King (saint) Roberton (saint), Z Merrett (drug), Bruest (hawk)
Nathan: When did you get balls?
