Well we're back baby for the fourth and final comp of the year. Congratulations to leaper who managed to fall over the line in a competition noone seemed to want to actually win (aka every Freo vs Swans game in the last 5 years). Basic premise, pick who you think will kick a goal for the next game. More convoluted crap below.

Rules


Basic plot: You have to pick a Lions 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 by voting in the poll. Your selection must be in by the first bounce. You can only pick a player once during the comp, if you select the same person twice you will be 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. If there's more than one late change then I'll match up players alphabetically to work out who replaced who.

Tiebreaker: As the competition goes on I will count your goals. Eg if you pick Hipwood this week and he kicks 5 goals then those goals go against your name. If our final participants all bomb out at the same time then the winner is whoever has the most goals up until that point. If the remaining participants are also equal on goals then each of them will get 1 point if they got the highest goal kicker for that round. If we're still tied after then the winner will be determined by undergoing the Jack Redden challenge, where a ball will be kicked into your nether regions with the first one to kneel the loser.

Do I go McStay for a third time; that is the question...
My theory is that in week 1 you pick the least most likely player (if you know what I mean), because that way if you're eliminated you haven't wasted any extra time - so yes, McStay works (as did Robinson and Zorko for me in previous rounds).

Well this week saw a pretty large drop off in the first week with McCarthy, Robinson and Mcstay all not kicking a goal. In unrelated news Dylan12 was seen muttering "never again, never again" to himself somewhere in tasmania shortly after the game despite the win. We will be starting a new comp just for him next week where he will do his part for the lions and pick who will kick a goal for the opposition team. Below are those still in the game.

Apologies for the late timing. USA time difference it hampering me

I don’t see how I can’t not select Dan McStay in the next iteration of the comp whenever it may be; I’ve made my bed.

Well only one player going out this week, which given the score isn't really a shock. This week will be an interesting one, especially if geelong put the brakes on. Take a chance or play it safe?
