Thanks for that.

I’m unlikely to spend much time on my computer between now and first bounce, so it goes up when it goes up 😉. Point me towards the scripture that says a game day thread has to be created game day ...
Don’t look at me. These are rules passed down over generations. RandB used to unlock the GAMEDAY thread just an hour or two before the bounce. Since then standards have been relaxed, Topkent reckons the game is vanilla, Vegan burgers are the rage, Trump is President. You do the math

At the moment at least, that seems a pretty smart time to fly out, given the team will be confined to the hotel until it’s time to head to the stadium. Too much sitting around isn’t ideal when you’ve got a game of footy at the end.

Ill happily use this as a reason why Goodwin should be fired after round 1if it all goes tits up tomorrow. So I like it from that perspective.

Yeah when they mentioned it in the freo game and why it couldve been why they started slow it makes sense.

I don't know , maybe watching the women come back from out of it might inspire them to never give up . We are a club , not just a team .

Hey Proper Gander and A11dAtP0w3R ... it’s game day.

what a rubbish start time tho, going to be a long wait
Among many other things, the Coronavirus is responsible for possibly the worst afl time slot ever seen.

Ah well, hoping the dees can show something this evening, we look fit and I reckon we're a strong chance if we're up and about early.

Big day. Bit nervous and the long wait doesn’t help.

Still, making the most of the last flourish of self isolated optimism before reality comes crashing down on us... ANB to kick 5.0 and OMac to keep Kennedy goalless.

Someone bring the game forward. I’m feeling better than I have for the past 6 weeks after recovering from flu of all things. But I can’t kill time by going out anywhere or doing anything. I don’t think I can survive reading BF all day while waiting

Also EAD Topkent and Pedantic.

Poor form paying out on veggie burgers when some st00pid carnivore gone done caused a global pandemic.

When was the last time a falafel caused the casino to close?!?!?!?
Only thing I'll pay is cauliflower wings, thought they were genuine dog shit but now I'm all about em
