The goal kicking competition was a tough gig in 2020 because we didn't kick any. Droves of posters were bundled out every week which merely added to fans' frustration at our annus horribilis.

Appropriately we finished the season with no winner. The last round seeing Coopers and Thetrader15 knocked out together as last ones standing, so into the Broom Closet they go. Competition naming rights on hold for now.

Current Reigning Champion: Nil

Hall of Fame: AdelaideFan14, Coopers, Hinkstuff, SugarShane, Dirty Bird, jenny61_99, AFC979810, ok.crows, Samcro24, Crowowowow, Crouch, El Doederino, Crouch again, Brenton Davy, SugarShane again, Redleg Crow, footy4ever, croweater 41

Broom Closet of Fame: johnnypanther, AFC979810, Glenno23, Brown_WOOLF, Tarasque36, DangerSloane, DD#23, Glenno23 again, Mattrox, Pilchard_Adams, Red mist, Coopers, Thetrader15

NB: Participants enter the 'Broom Closet' when there is no outright winner and all remaining participants bomb at the same time.

Rules

No rule changes for once. I had toyed with the idea of allowing posters to scrape through even if their selected player kicked a behind but I figured why prolong the inevitable.

Basic plot:
You have to pick an Adelaide goal kicker each week. If he kicks a goal you move on to the next round. If he doesn't you're out. Can't pick the same player twice. Last person left wins.

Selections: You make your selections in this thread. Your selection must be in by the first bounce. If you pick someone twice you're eliminated. You can change your selection right up until the first bounce if you get a late vibe.

Late changes: If your selected player is named in the 22 but is a late withdrawal then you get whoever comes in for him. For clarity, a late change is any change that occurs after the Thursday Night selection announcement (Or Friday Afternoon if it's a Sunday game). If there's more than one late change then I'll match up players alphabetically to work out who replaced who. If one change occurs on a Friday after teams are announced on Thursday, and a further change occurs on match day, we'll still apply the alphabetical rule.

Forgetting: If you forget - bad luck! You're out.

Tiebreaker: Gone. Had been keeping track of goals to use as a tie breaker in case all remaining participants bomb out in the same week. Too fiddly and time consuming. Have returned to the original rule where if the remaining participants all bow out at the same time and there is no outright winner, into the Broom Closet they go.

Latecomers: If you haven't entered by the first bounce of the Crows' Round 1 clash with Geelong then you can't play.

Immunity Card: If your player kicks the first goal of the game (the game, not just the Crows first goal) then you earn an Immunity Card. An Immunity Card can be used if your selected player fails to kick a goal. It's like a Get Out of Jail Free card.

Newish rule: If you select a player and they kick their first ever goal in AFL football you also earn an Immunity Card.

Fine Print Rule: If you forget to put a selection in one week but sneak through via an Immunity Card... then you will be allocated the Crows players with the lowest guernsey number who didn't kick a goal in that game. Just so that all players have made an equal number of selections.

Entries must be in by the first bounce of the Adelaide vs Geelong massacre.

Good luck all. Please add your selections below.

Oh sorry, I thought this was the "running inside 50m and blasting it through for a behind despite being under no pressure whatosever" competition

I'll change my pick of Mackay to Rowe
