What a fine finish to an absolutely shithouse 2nd half of the season! The pantskyle curse was shattered this weekend, as we cruised home to a well fought victory on home turf at Van Cortlandt over the valiant Roys by 20 points.
The win sees us return to finals for Season 26, as we secure 5th place on the ladder and a home elimination final next week here at Van Cortlandt Park.

In a memorable evening, our members and supporters invaded the ground late in the 4th quarter once word filtered through BigJoeD_ had secured the leading goalkicker award in scenes reminiscent of yesteryear.
With a best on ground performance, Joe finished with 7 goals on the day, taking out the award with 76 goals, 3 goals clear of eventual runner up okeydoke7. Joe is just the 2nd FRED medallist for the club, joining S21 winner Reginald Perrin.

zackah found a rich vein of form in a new found midfield role with 24 touches, 10 tackles and a goal. Ably supported on the wing by DapperJong also adding 24 touches and a goal and the mecurial pantskyle chipping in the ruck with 9 hitouts to go with his 22 disposals. Wooshette down back was instrumental in the win, as Roys FF Mooch was held goalless, murdered by the all-conquering #ironcurtains.
In what was a quiet week for both sides, this week’s thread was a particularly jovial affair, full of generic well meaning banter, even more generic retorts and of course the customary generic lols enjoyed with some of the true gentlemen and elder statesmen of the Sweet FA.
In case you missed it, TedDougChris found internet porn, there were two separate and unrelated references to SBS foreign movies and hand cream, Wooshette outed herself as the true source of the Wazza's curse and... Allikat!
With Big Joe’s outstanding year up front, not to mention @FreoFalcon’s dominant early season form in the ruck, we should see just rewards for our shithot start to year in the S26 All-SFA side. Being a rookie I am not 100% on the process but I believe there are nominations from each club so stay tuned for voting.
Thank **** for #thestreak saving our asses, as we return to finals for Season 26.
So we now head into a finals campaign in form, full of belief and free of the curse, let’s rip this finals series a new angus next week!
First Elimination Final: Coney Island Warriors vs East Side Hawks at Van Cortlandt Park
Get your votes in Wazzas
It's Video Game Round! With PAX Aus this weekend, what better way for the SFA to join in than with a themed week?
C'mon, Cloud_ said I could do this...
It's a league powerhouse against a struggling titan...
To say that the East Side Hawks have had an underwhelming season would be putting it mildly. They sit 10th on the ladder, with a 5-8 record, and the walls closing in on their season. Can Agent93 get his club back into the eight where they belong?
The Warriors got off to a flying start, but #TheStreak has long been broken, and Coney Island have been struggling for form. While they sit second on the ladder, could they be overestimating their own depth?
A season on the line, and a season for the taking...
VG Week Mascot Origins
Hawks: East Side's mascot is Flappy Bird, from the side scrolling game of the same name. Flappy Bird doesn't have much depth to his character, so I'll leave it to you to come up with a humourous biography.
Warriors: Coney Island's mascot is Link, from The Legend of Zelda series of adventure games. Link is a Kokiri elf who over his travels, becomes a screaming warrior who breaks everyone's pots and vases.
Players to Watch
The new co-host of the SFA game shows, The Jesus is on of the Hawks most prolific posters. Is Sunday going to see some more divine intervention?
With the burden of the captaincy now off his shoulders, Loons can bounce back to being one of the league's best posters. Is he ready to step up?
The current Fred Medal leader, Big Joe has more than lived up to his name at full-forward. Is he going to kick another bag this weekend?
While not the biggest name on the Warriors list, zackah is one of the most underrated. Will he finally break into the leagues elite?
