    Where the clubs sit

    The Bombers -
    WWWLL - Currently 5th and guaranteed Finals

    With a win - will stay 5th as percentage won't move them up ladder
    With a loss - can slip to as far as 7th.

    What this means - not much as the Bombers have shown a club can win it all from a lower spot in the 8 come finals time.

    The Demons - WLLWL - Currently 10th

    With a win - And a Bears and Royals loss - can move to 8th
    With a loss - Will finish 10th as percentage is bad.

    What this means - The Demons leave to much in other teams hands. Their poor percentage means only a win and those 2 teams losing will work. Can they make finals - Yes, so they shouldn't give up yet.

    Match ups I would like to see - Lets be honest I only care about the Ruck contest

    Ruck -
    Matty411 vs DemonJim -

    matty had to bide his time due to KohPhi not admitting how bad a ruckman he was. (ok he had a lock on the Tarkyn_24 team of the week) - but my statement stands, his stamina to last a full season just wasn't there, and I had his measure.

    DemonJim is new to this position as well, either that or a very bad ruckman. Seriously though the Demons LG holds the Ruck position with contempt and has used 4 players in their this season.

    Players in the hunt for top 5 finishes in Stat catagories

    Bombers -
    NIL - this is a team that doesn't rely on individual efforts - As 2 x premiership team, they know what it takes to win a s a team. Maybe other teams need to take note.

    Of note - DT stat - The first Bomber on the list is Tony Lynn 15 at position 27 on 1094 points - This is in stark contrast of my team the Wonders who have 5 x players in the Top 20 in DT points.

    Demons -

    sante - 338 posessions - 3rd - 10 behind Tommycash - (hard to see him overtake him)
    166 kicks - 4th - 13 behind Blaze Storm
    172 Handballs - 4th - 16 behind Tommycash

    Yakker - 108 Tackles - 1st - 3 in front of Elton Johns Wig
    1296 DT points - 2nd - 60 points behind Blaze Storm (Needs SIM to do his work early - quite funny really so do I so I can overtake Blaze Storm in hitouts - joint prayer Yakker?)

    Bono Predicts

    [​IMG]
    Demons beat Bombers by 26 points - to still miss finals, Bombers to finish 6th

    Good luck to both sides this week

    Captains please remember to post the Official Team Sheets by 11.59pm Melbourne time on Thursday

    Bummers!! Hello my luvlies :D we meet again and the prestigious "Flathead of the week" award is up for grabs. BEEG grabbed the choccies last time we met. Can he go back to back? Will TheCoach16 make a run at the title, can KohPhi rise to the challenge, is it finally Tony Lynn 15 's time to be crowned with the most sought after award in the SFA or will Matty411 get the accolades he so richly deserves by being named The Flathead of the week?#FHOTW

    You gave up too easily. Typical Wonders Mindset. I persisted and fixed the issue because I am dedicated and wired for success.

    Not much, I had to put in a crappy GIF, compared to the brilliant one I had planned.

    What Yakker doesn't tell you is, this is not the GIF he was after.

    What is a Flathead award and why should I be honoured to receive it, and is it more prestigious than the EKA?

    Looking forward to the week, Demons.

    The EKA is a shit award that is meaningless because it is only awarded to kiss arse BC wannabes. (Just ask BEEG ). The FHOTW award is far more prestigious with previous winners such as fitzroybowiedog , Wooshette Frankston Rover. Shit, even BEEG won one.

    Give it your best shot Matty, I like the cut of your jib :thumbsu:

    I'm not new to Ruck, I played it for a whole season, somewhere.
    But this season I'm new to it. And been smashing it!
