Sure: last night Straddo and I had one player each competing, both listed as midfielders - he had Lipinski (9 disposals) and I had you-know-who (who gathered 26 and was clearly bog).

That's a positive, for sure.

Naturally, Straddo wouldn't view that as a positive - each to their own.

The beer, company and wine was worth the effort last night.

Oh oh - Straddo's hitting back, 24 to Petracca. Let me check who his ruck is...Ladhams? Who? That Port newbie? Hang on, let me check his stats....HAHAHAHA, 6 in total. HAHAHA.

Man o man, I may be going ok this weekend - hey Strado, don't bother with a 150kms round trip to check on your score.

HAHAHA - I'm channelling Slammey this weekend.

Switching ruckman to the junior ruck playing against Maxy Gawn was a coaching masterstroke. At least in the sense of someone who has suffered a severe blood clot in the brain and can't think or make logical decisions.

I should have stuck with strategy number 1. When you're winning, let it ride!

Hope you lot had fun last night!

Not much to say from me except that due to my big day on the high seas on Thursday, not only did I miss the drinks but I didn't get my team in on time for the first time this year.
I'm pretty sure Fyfe will be back but he didn't even make it onto my bench.

Which is good news for Freo and the game on Sunday, he is bound to get 30+ disposals.

It was that big a day I even forgot what day it was.
Make that Wednesday.
Bloody Wednesday night games.

Not announcing teams until the day before is going to be a killer. It's hurt my side with the lack of notice a replacement ruckman was coming into the side and will hurt plenty of others over the 'festival of footy'. Is there a way we can delay the naming of teams or some parts of our sides that doesn't impact Merc's ability to grab all the teams/hand sides an advantage?
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.

Soundly annihilated.

Well played Poll.

Yeh team selections are going to be interesting going forward, I'm wondering if we don't need to specify a replacement for each position as there are many names talked about during the week that either get up or don't on match day.

That was really rough mate - one starter and three on the interchange ruled out before the start of the round. Good effort nonetheless, just rotten luck.
