    Hey y'all.

    We've decided to introduce a pretty neat exercise in creativity after seeing how successful said activity is on other team boards- appointing aspiring wordsmiths and smartarses to our weekly game previews.

    So, without further preamble, the criteria is as follows:
    • Use this thread to sign up for any match you'd like to preview in the upcoming season. First in, best dressed, so if you want a specific match try and get in early.
    • There is no criteria to sign up, you don't have to have been a poster for a long time or have made a lot of posts, but just make sure you're in a position to write one when it's your week. If you can't do it when the time comes, let me, or one of the friendly mods (Allikat Tayl0r Seppo ) know and they will probably sort out a suitable punishment and/or replacement. I'll take the bulk of the responsibility for this venture so hassle me before the others if possible.
    • Have fun with the preview. Make it interesting, it doesn't have to be written under a certain guideline or include x,y,z- write it the way you want, use pictures, videos, whatever. A good dose of humour never hurts either.
    • This isn't a competition, but previews judged the best by your peers (most liked, how else do you quantify "best" on the internet :p) may or may not receive a shiny badge. Gotta incentivise it somehow and there's no incentive quite like a barely visible badge under your username. Awww yeah

    Lastly, credit to Quinz as my main inspiration, particularly the criteria which I blatantly copy'n'pasted with only a few tweaks. You're still a sub-human reprobate though.

    Ah well, could be worse. Could be the megaflog Reep or whatever he calls himself these days.

    Not too surprising that both Geelong games have been snapped up. I really hope Harry Reems gets on board for one of the derbies.
