Good loving god you give it to two separate players for having lovely tattoos and don’t even mention Jake Stringer’s lion-belly? Shameful.

FootyTipping hasn't rolled over yet for some reason but if you were in it last year you should be automatically entered in it this year.

Brianna Davey is the new Carlton captain for 2018. Arnell is stepping down to be a vice captain along with Sarah Hosking.

I guess it makes sense, Arnell will be turn 32 at the end of the season and might retire this or next year. This gives Davey some more time as captain while arnell is also playing and can be in the leadership group. Arnell has been doing coaching courses last year so I guess she'll aim to be in the coaches box and also still do commentary work for the ABC.

was injured for 3 weeks, came back in, got a 6 week injury in the first quarter.

Also Jayden Hunt did an ACL

The worst part about injuries is the second your list changes by an out or inclusion, the game decides to automatically produce some disgusting selection-gore.

Hogan, both McDonalds and Lever on the bench, with Dean Kent lining up at Full Forward and Jack Viney at Full Back type stuff. Have to manually change it every time.

I hope to put together a more sane simulation thingamy for this year but it's kind of on the backburner at the moment.

The system itself is also going to change a little bit, there's this weird thing where average results (both median and mean) is closer than each teams' relative ratings so I'm trying to account for that as well. Kind of interesting but also really dry.

fwiw I actually think itís good when employees stand up to what they see as unreasonable requests from an employer and I donít see why it should be any different for footy players. Itís not like that time our players told the coaches they werenít doing time trials that day because they were hungover.

I've been told Kurt Tippett will be gone next week. Supposedly the official reason will be that his body is hosed but it's really because he's a lazy fuckhead and Longmire hates him.
