We're back!

Well done to Brenton Davy who won the first installment this season in a shootout against Pea Nut thanks to Lachlan Murphy's courageous mark and goal against the Bears.

Not only is the game back but - due to popular demand - Immunity Cards are back as well.

Feedback received: Why do you keep chopping and changing the rules all the time? Just pick a set and stick with them.
Never!


Current Reigning Champion: Brenton Davy

Hall of Fame: @AdelaideFan14, @Coopers, Hinkstuff, SugarShane, Dirty Bird, jenny61_99, AFC979810, ok.crows, Samcro24, Crowowowow, Crouch, El Doederino, Crouch, Brenton Davy

Broom Closet of Fame: johnnypanther, AFC979810, Glenno23, @Brown_WOOLF, Tarasque36, DangerSloane, DD#23, Glenno23 again, Mattrox, Pilchard_Adams, Red mist

NB: Participants enter the 'Broom Closet' when there is no outright winner and all remaining participants bomb at the same time.

Rules

Basic plot: You have to pick an Adelaide 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. Your selection must be in by the first bounce. If you pick someone twice you're 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. For clarity, a late change is any change that occurs after Thursday Night (Or Friday Afternoon if it's a Sunday game). If there's more than one late change then I'll match up players alphabetically to work out who replaced who. If one change occurs on a Friday after teams are announced on Thursday, and a further change occurs on match day, we'll still apply the alphabetical rule.

Forgetting: If you forget - bad luck! You're out.

Tiebreaker: Gone. Had been keeping track of goals to use as a tie breaker in case all remaining participants bomb out in the same week. Too fiddly and time consuming. Have returned to the original rule where if the remaining participants all bow out at the same time and there is no outright winner, into the Broom Closet they go.

Latecomers: If you haven't entered by the first bounce of the Crows' clash with West Coast then you can't play.

Immunity Card: If your player kicks the first goal of the game (the game, not just the Crows first goal) then you earn an Immunity Card. An Immunity Card can be used if your selected player fails to kick a goal. It's like a Get Out of Jail Free card.

Happy picking!
