    Season 26 Round 12

    East Side Hawks vs Roys FFC
    The powerhouse posting club of the competition comes up against the defending premiers in a match with both participants trying to consolidate their positions in the top 8. It will be a hard game to split, with their Round 1 clash being so close and at BJO, but a win for either side would be valuable insurance in a tight race for finals.

    The reverse fixture in Round 1 was Match of the Round and lived up to its billing, with the Roys edging it by 4 points after Noobz0r missed a running shot at goal in the dying seconds. The clubs are both sitting at 5-6, with the Roys' percentage of 99.91 superior to East Side's 96.86, but their recent form is anything but similar. The Hawks are somewhat in-form, winning 3 of their last 5 and their last two in a row, whilst the Roys have experienced a downward spiral after once being in the top 2 for several weeks. 1 win from the last 5 reflects their current form so on paper they go in as fairly heavy underdogs at Waverley Park.

    por_please_ya is coming off a great game in defence and midfield for the Hawks and there's been plenty of support for her from the likes of Agent93, The Jesus and spookism. After a shaky start, Noobz0r has settled in well at full forward, but arguably their best has been half back The Half Back. For the Roys, Mooch has won games off his own boot on multiple occasions from full forward but they rely on consistent contributions from the likes of TedDougChris, Broken and 3KZ is Football.

    Prediction
    Hawks by 39 points


    Captains, please post your official teamsheet by 11:59pm AEDT Thursday.

    I won some games off my own boot many seasons ago when I had a rare stint at full-forward, but this time I think you meant to type Mooch.

    Sneaky ****en effort posting at 4 in the morning. You slimebucket sneaking around the forum in the still of the night! Fortunately as I play for the Roys, I must therefore be very old and - apparently as the completely unfathomable trope goes - in bed early. Go on, explain it, you nightcrawler.

    Also, I am looking forward to the trip out to Waverley Park to meet the Hawks for a hit-out. They're a pretty consistently performing team over the seasons they've been in the top flight, and we rarely walk away unscathed. I remember a time, many yonks back, when we were traveling well, had the usual hiccups, then snuck into the finals at the eleventh hour. Then Eastside beat us by about 130 points in the Elimination Final. That still rankles.

    I am not sure of the personnel these days. I won't tag anyone in case they've moved elsewhere and it causes a kerfuffle. I will say that I am glad to be able to represent the Roys club in a pervyy fashion, kicking off proceedings and surprising even myself with a sparrow's fart visit to this thread while it is still relatively pristine and unsullied. I never come when you want me but I'm right on time. Well, in my case it's more like I never come when you want me because I have a disorder.

    The gorillas are traveling well, if our goal was to be essentially inches from lifeless by the end of the season. We would like to turn that around, and the Hawks are welcome to be a part of the upcoming revival.

    I will bring some footage from Sweet sometime in the next few days, assuming the server doesn't shit itself again like it did last week.

    Oh joy, a week of virtual wang waggling has been setup by the OP. Yay!

    I'm off to see if I can still get in to the Waverley Park scoreboard instead.

    I wouldn't normally consider you a hypocrite Broken but having a SmokeFree reference with an image of peak Selleck is pretty close.

    I'm glad you brought this up. The time for atonement is at hand Noobz0r. Nothing else matters than repaying the faith shown in you in round 1, in this particular week.

    No pressure mate.

    I dunno, I think vanders had a few that day as well. Basically anyone but Noobz should have taken that shot.

    That's also a good point. I know you're under pressure, but The Jesus hasn't been too flash in the ruck these past few weeks either. Marginal gains fellas. Small increments and we'll get there.

    Comfortably in the top 40% of rucks in the competition which makes my job security quite good.

    Hey, I'm the same re: full forwards. What gives Agent93?

    Quite rightly.

    You only need to be in the top 66% of things here to make the cut because the place panders to snowflakes.

    His form is shithouse. You cost us the game. We should all be taking example from The Half Back and his marking prowess. He is a sheer paragon of catch.

    Aye, nothing like the red hot thrill of a top-2 finals series. Bottom 10 are weaklings, not fit for licking the boots of the glorious.

    Hello Roys, long time, no see.

    Noobz, if you miss another game winner, you may as well clean out your locker.

    I think a final 5 is a solid maximum.

    It bemuses everyone how premiers sometimes win from 5th, 6th, etc. A bit of a running theme ... "don't finish first or second because they never win flags".

    So ... give them only 2 or 3 opponents in the final series! Seriously, how hard can this be? If you are minor premiers you should be able to hit the finals feeling that you are well placed if for no other reason than that there simply aren't many other teams left that are even permitted a shot at them.

    Additional advantages include clearing out the competition of the trash who have too small an attention span to stick around and find a way to be useful if half their season is spent knowing they won't be playing finals. Just leaves mostly proactives and removes the majority of spammers and shitposters.

    Hi ... not really that long ... :)

    Are you arguing for league contraction? Interesting, tell me more.
