Okay, we play Collingwood this week. They've cut it back to one round a week to get more participants, this week is a big one. They're second, we're 14th, but we're only a game and % out of the 8
I'll get in early.

******* Sidebottom, kills us EVERY. SINGLE. *******. TIME.

Since Stewart and Francis literally did nothing I propose:

J Stewart FP to OUT
A Francis BP to OUT
D Heppell Int to W
D Smith W to HFF
A McDonald-Tipungwuti OUT to FP
M Redman HFF to BP
J Stringer OUT to Int

M Gleeson - M Hurley - M Redman
A Saad - P Ambrose - J Ridley
D Heppell - A McGrath - Z Merrett
D Smith - J Daniher - C McKenna
O Fantasia - C Hooker - A McDonald-Tipungwuti
T Bellchambers - D Shiel - T Hird
J Stringer - M Hibberd

Thoughts?

I'd like to know more about how changes to stamp duty are going to affect my situation. Part way through buying a block of land and yet to have plans on a build, am i going to cop a double dose? Probably. Be just my luck. Not sure what to have for lunch probably leftover roast pork, would be the sensible thing to do. How much yogurt is too much for a toddler?

We lost, so I'm playing the kids apart from the few players who are top 20 in any statistical measures because it seems we're f’ed either way.

Everyone with fewer than 10 games (actual AFL) will get a game.

B: L Johnson - B Zerk-Thatcher - N Bryan
HB: A Saad - C McBride - M Redman
C: W Snelling - A McGrath - B Ham
HF: N Cahill - N Jones - J Begley
F: I Mosquito - N Gown - H Crauford
R: T Bellchambers - M Hibberd - T Hird
I: S Draper - R McQuillan

For all the complaining that would usually happen on a Thursday evening, the chopping and changing of the line-up in this thread makes the actual selectors look very very good. Leaving Stringer out on ANZAC Day... amazing.

So they cut the season short. We finished 17th. Stats wise:

Bellchambers had the 4th most hit outs in H/A, behind English, Naitanui and Lobb
McGrath finished 1st in disposals and handballs, a tie for 8th in kicks, 3rd in frees against and 14th in dreamteam

I'd expect them to be the only ones in contention for "All e-AFL" contention (if they do it), although I'd expect Nic Nat/English to be the two rucks, both finishing in the top 6 for touches as well as top 2 for hit outs.
