TooSerious

For those who take it way too seriously

Goldi sucks. Rookies suck. Parker is awesome and I got a 2160, which feels about par I reckon.

Guess we'll see when it opens. How'd you go?
So, the Dogs had more of it, but couldn't do the work up forward.

Surely both teams will be there deep in September, wonder if we'll see a rematch?
ORFFL Round 6 Preview:

We haven’t had anything ORFFL related for a couple of weeks. Not a lot of time put in to this so apologies in advance for its brevity and any errors and omissions.

Woy Woy Wizards 15 v Smiths Beach Seagulls 3

Not really a classic Friday night game to kick off the weekend. A strong start to the season for the ‘gulls sees them sitting nicely in 3rd place with a 4-1 record and they should be too strong for the 15th placed Wizards. Seagulls by 150

Bundalong Bullfrogs 18 v Coulta Couldabeens 8

Not a great year for the Bullfrogs so far sees them propping up the table. Having Big Ivan in the ruck is a relief, however the strong Richmond influence still pervades this team which is really not something to instill a great deal of confidence. They are hosting Coulta this week and who really knows which Coulta team is going to turn up. Having said that I can’t see them getting done this week, Coulta by 80.

Queenstown Quolls 13 v Mallacoota Magicians 6

I’m going for the upset here with the Quolls to get over the line by 15. A few ins over the last few weeks who whilst not being superstars have provided depth. Also, Jack Redden in the midfield for the Magicians, really, that’s nearly as bad as Aish as defence interchange.

Glenrowan Gunslingers 1 v Humpty Doo Hammerheads 10

Hard to see the Hammerheads bouncing back this week coming up against the table topping Gunslingers. Business as usual with the Glenrowan boys comfortably home by 200. All eyes starting to focus on the round 9 clash with the Savages.

Mt Buggery Disappointments 12 v Jimcumbilly Jackrabbits 9

After a 0-3 start the MBD boys have done a Melbourne and gone back to back to get themselves back in the mix. An important game here against the 9th placed Jackrabbits a classic 8 pointer if ever I have seen one. Goldstein v Martin in the ruck will go a long way in deciding this one. Jackrabbits by 22.

Warburton Wanderers...
There is a very rare phenomenon (well we don’t think it’s happened before) which is the theme of this week’s TipBetPro feature article – both the NRL and AFL minor premiers from 2015 sit bottom of their respective tables. For any NRL fans out there – we’ve taken a look at the fall from grace of the Roosters on our website (NRL Article). But here – we’ll be taking a look at the reasons behind the spectacular collapse of Fremantle.
Also see over for all our Round 6 tips.
Gosh, where does the week go? Thursday already!

Looks like we have some nice 1st gamers coming in, but it's at the expense of a few premiums and a couple of rookie backman.

Hopefully you manage to dodge the worst of it though!!

IN: Petracca, Gresham, Deledio, Davis, Prestia, Keays, Aliir*
OUT: Suckling, Lee, Fyfe, Rance, Lobbe, R. Gray, Wingard, Ruggles, Curnow

While the Adelaide Crows won't forget Patrick Dangerfield, they have proven they can cope without him. Having been awarded the Malcolm Blight Medal as the club's best and fairest, the midfielder took the decision to end his eight-year stay in Adelaide. He agreed a deal with the Geelong Cats that didn't come as a massive surprise after such a long-winded saga. The loss of their best player had convinced some that the Crows wouldn't be able to repeat their success of last year, when they made the finals after a two-year absence. With the new season under way, though, Adelaide have shown they are more than capable of making the top eight without the presence of Dangerfield.

Adelaide knew for a long time that 2015 was probably going to be the midfielder's last season with the Crows and that gave them time to plan for life without the three-time All Australian. Under the guidance of new head coach Don Pyke, Adelaide have more than just survived without their player of last season. They have started the new campaign in very encouraging fashion. Currently eighth in the ladder with three wins and two defeats, the Crows have looked solid, especially in a midfield that had been tipped to struggle without Dangerfield.
Ablett week 1, Docherty week2 – neither has quite lived up to the expectations of a Best Buy, maybe there is a bit of a curse going on here...

A lot of people will be hurting with the loss of Fyfe, so of course that’s what we will focus on this week.
(And yes, anyone who brought Rance in for JJ will be feeling a little bit sore too – but I don’t want to pick another defender)

Read over for our Best Buys this week…

This week was the week we remembered the fallen in ORFFA, and some players took that far too literally, with some very ordinary individual scores. However some other players took the ANZAC spirit to heart, and played with courage, valour and integrity truly befitting the occasion. A crowd of 7263 saw the Nuffers and the Spelunkers slug out a game for the ages, and coach Tracey finally popped a champagne cork with her first win of the season.

Gundagai Grasshoppers 1165 defeated the Marble Bar Misfits 998

Gundagai return to winning form taking care of a depleted Marble Bar outfit. Neale, Cripps, Adams and Rockliff combined for a very impressive 422 for the Hoppers in the guts, with Curnow, Mills and ‘The Package’ Stringer providing plenty of assistance. Grundy sucked in the ruck, but Phillips equally sucked for the misfits, tying Grundy's score with 54 points. The forward line of the Misfits was AWOL, with no player scoring over 70, whilst the man with a name built for the adult film industry, Orazio Fantasia, continued to show what a shrewd draft selection he was for Marble Bar, Gundagai are now in the lofty heights of mid table mediocrity.

Lovely Banks Lilacs 1087 defeated by Venus Bay Vultures 1225

Lovely Banks go down to the Vultures to go 0-5, but are showing plenty in the early rounds of this season. The Vultures had a doughnut which will leave a difficult conversation for Fitzy to have at the review meeting this afternoon. Rosa, Thompson, Duncan and Stanley lit it up for the Lilacs, but it was the midfield of the Vultures that won the game with tons from Parker and Greene (both 129), Gaff and Blair (both 102) icing the game early on. The Vultures rucks struggled, with Martin only getting 69 and Kreuzer doing stuff all for his 37. Fitzy might count himself lucky in this...
Oh Fyfe, you were my captain.

You led me to a 2048 and now you are gone.

Sigh.

How'd the rest of you go?

Puuuuuuuuuuuooooooooooooopppppppppppppoooooooooooollllllllllllllooooooooo !!!

The Hawks and Crows match was a beauty and this Anzac round has plenty of great matchups to come.

Good luck in your SC and fantasy footy comps, tipping and punting, long weekending and whatever elseing.

Rumours abound that Grimley is playing on Anzac day so be careful using him as your Captain loophole in case he is a a late in.

I am posting this on the iPad, so if anyone can add an Anzac day related pic I would be thankful - lest we forget !
