Speaking of competition, it's FANTASY FOOTBALL TIME

The Goon Golden Spoon Draft League has been carried over, but teams need to rejoin, with the draft currently set to 6pm Saturday March 17, but that's movable.

Supercoach invite link here, currently a 10 team league.

At this point I only want to really see him play some games and dont expect him to make the impact we once hoped but he hasnt actually torn it again and is still a potential for JLT2.

AFL have announced no rule changes for this year.

2nd year in a row they've decided the 50m penalty for protected zone infringement is reasonable. Cool, cool cool.

It's currently a 12 team league, and I can take it as low as 4 and high as 18 teams, you won't be taking someone's spot

I mean, if Stringer is funneling all of his compulsions to act out and be a fuckwit into simply continuing to make himself look more and more a fuckwit, then I can probably get on board with it.

If you saw Atlas, the giant who holds the world on his shoulders, if you saw that he stood, blood running down his chest, his knees buckling, and the greater his effort the heavier the world bore down upon his shoulders - What would you tell him?

Nope. That dream ended with Bri davey doing her knee.

We've got a half strength team tonight too with Loynes injured in warm up, Brazzale, Harris, Gee and Hardiman all out too, we weren't going to win this one but gently caress me I hope we get a goal or three at least.

As a Melbourne supporter I consider myself something of an expert on thrashings and this is one of the worst Iíve seen.

At least Carlton are getting some effective tackles now, but they donít even look like scoring.

The umpiring has been shocking. I normally hate bagging the umps but bulldogs bias tonight.

Shierlaw should have gotten a kick 30m out for being held but it was ignored.

I think itís been bad both ways tbh. They seem to have more or less abandoned the calls for dragging it in that they were giving last week and itís resulting in a hell of a lot more ball ups

I had to leave before watching the last quarter, but itís one of those games where if you heard afterwards that the whole Carlton list had the flu youíd be like ďthat makes a bit more senseĒ

Lost count of how many times the dogs just kicked it into an empty forward line and by the time their player arrived they were multiple steps in front of the nearest opponent.

Felt sorry for the young blues tall forward, looked like she had a real tough time of it.

For some reason I had myself convinced that it was the Bulldogs who were missing a key player, and tipped accordingly.
