    Hello all, and welcome to my latest media venture: A Moment in Time. Each week I, Noobz0r, will read to you a story from SFA history. These will generally cover the league's most controversial and baffling moments, and will show how this place both has, and hasn't, changed.

    Now, I know what you're (cough Ant Bear) thinking. "Classic Noobz, starting a thread that he won't finish!" Well, firstly this isn't a daily post like my original historical media piece was. Secondly, I've already written 4 of them. So nuts to you.

    Each weekly segment will be split into two parts: My recounting of the story and, later in the week, a response by the players involved (if such a response is forthcoming).

    In order to cut own on post size, all quotes will be hidden in spoiler tags.

    If anyone can recall a controversial moment that they would like to see featured on this media piece, please hit me up via PM with a rundown of the posters involved and a rough guess at the season / round.

    Enjoy!

    The Deddy Stoush and the End of Juggs’ Captaincy

    Stanza One – Juggs’ Captaincy

    At the beginning of Season 15, Papa Juggs (then known as Juggalo Balla) officially took over the Mount Buller Demons captaincy from league heavyweight @EBIAC. EBIAC had checked out during the previous season, and Juggs (along with Eth) righted the ship and took the Demons to a Grand Final.

    So the Demons hit Season 15 with a heap of momentum; heavyweight posters such as Juggs, Eth, and Gus, and the continued rise of youngsters in Quivorir and Deddy.

    However, midway through the season, question marks began to arise over Juggs’ captaincy style. He was seen by many as being far too dogmatic and brash. There was initially controversy over his continual spouting about Deddy being a sure thing for the EKA in Season 14, and his constant criticism of the SFA establishment.

    However, the biggest hit to his reputation came when Gumbies legend winty kicked his way into the record books by becoming the leading goal kicker in SFA history. Juggs’ responded by accusing the Gumbies of going against the spirit of the competition by continuing to play their (admittedly inactive) club legend at full forward.

    Fall out can be seen in the following OP of a boncer34 thread, where public opinion began to turn against Juggs.


    However, Juggs still had the backing of the Demons, and the support of his lieutenants in Eth and Deddy. Whilst public opinion was against him, he still was safe in his position as Demons captain.

    That is until he managed to destroy Deddy’s enthusiasm for the club.

    Stanza Two – The Ruck Issue

    It was Round 13 of Season 15, and the Demons were coming off an absolutely thrilling 1 point win against the East Side Hawks. Quivorir starred with 22 touches in the ruck, and was the teams 4th most prolific poster (with 175 total posts through 13 rounds…). It was going to be hard to take the ruck spot off of him.

    Captain Juggs gave his thoughts on the game, and all hell broke loose.



    Whilst much of this conversation took place behind close doors, it seems that promising league youngster Deddy had been promised said ruck spot as a reward for his work so far that season.


    And what can only be described as the greatest sledging match between team mates in a team thread then took place:















    So it was, Deddy had left the team thread in a rage, and went straight into writing the following media piece.



    Talk about succinct eh?

    The Demons weren’t long behind in responding, however in an interesting turn of events, Eth was the one who instigated the thread. Was this a statement about where the Demons current leadership was sourced? Juggs was already under fire from around the league, did this indicate that his position as captain was also becoming untenable?



    As it turns out, this was merely wall papering over the cracks appearing in Juggs’ reign as captain. Literally 5 posts into the thread, beez chimed in and really broke it wide open. Did Deddy’s departure mean that there was more to Juggs’ current woes than it seemed?



    Stanza Three - Bye Bye Captaincy

    Juggs managed to see out the season, however this incident amongst others really had taken their toll on the combative poster. The league’s worst kept secret was that he would be leaving the position, and that it would be handed to Eth.



    However, there were still lingering doubts over his giving up of the captaincy. Many inside the club felt that his being the public face of the Demons was hurting their brand, many were disillusioned with the treatment of Deddy, and some other were considering leaving.

    This raised a very important question: was Juggs pushed? Itsmyshow certainly believed so, outlining it in his following media piece.

    Papa Juggs' career has since seen him take part in a campaign for league administrator, create and facilitate the first incarnation of the "Boys Club" in a pretty massive BigFooty PM, and since fade into a bit part poster for the East Side Hawks.

    His legacy sees him as a very divisive figure, one who is passionate and at times too headstrong. He has never backed down from what he believes in, and has been through several notable rivalries, particularly with boncer34 and okeydoke7.

    Juggs, thank you for one of the most entertaining exchanges in team thread history, and congratulations on a stellar career to date.

    Papa Juggs, do you disagree with how the Season 14 EKA medal finished?

    No melts required because this is genuinely a good thread :)

    Also for someone like me, a good chance to learn a bit more about the SFA as well.

    His career as a master troll would have created a fair bit of controversy methinks.
