For those who take it way too seriously

Got the fright of my life this week, just after lockout, I got a call from a mate asking me if I knew that Port and the Suns had a bye this week.

Now, I *knew* that they didn't, but in that moment, my heart sunk. What, how could I have missed that I wondered? I'm gunna be swimming in donuts I

Anyways, it didn't take too long to cotton onto the fact that I was being wound up, but it did get me to thinking- with all the rookies missing thus far, it might be tough.

Thankfully, Nank should be back by then to cover for Witts/Butler, but with 4 trades remaining between now and then, it's probably time to consider your plans- then the actual byes behind them!

Anyways, onto this week. I actually had a good one this week, with a 2160. About 100 above par I reckon.

Captain Rocky lead the way beautifully with his 148, and some stud performances from Hanners, Witts and Yeo rounded it out. Thinking though that it might just about be time to cut WHE. He's made some good dollars, but his roller coaster ride is getting awful close to de-railing I reckon!

How'd you all go?
I feel like I'm saying this every week, but there are some nasty outs this week!

Annoying, there's not many ins to make up for it!

Chooks 1128 def by Battlers 1157

An unexpected loss sees the Foul Bay scratchers downing a pint of reality.
The young, rebuilding Battlers beat up on what is normally a stellar mid-field with Blakely tagging like a pimple-faced teenage nightfill. With Birdsville’s defence choking the cockadoodle out of the chooks forwards, an upset was looming. Finally, in what arguably summed up the Chooks weekend, Mumford blinded by flea dust, accidentally tackled team mate Libba and had him seeing stars like a bad Foghorn cartoon.

Spelunkers 1032 def by Hoppers 1228

In a season where the sophisticated interface that is ts leagues has flommoxed the most savvy campaigners, Bandit’s Troggs woke up to Groundhog Day. Bont (141) and BigBoy (125) played out of their skins but were no match for the slap-happy Hoppers.
Eternal patience and smart trading has snoz giggling like a fat, rich locust on Viagra. Rocky was down but Neale (124) and Adams (120) steadied the ship supported by a solid forward line turnout.

Welcome to the sunshine snoz, hopefully you left me some decent wine downstairs.

Packers 1079 def by Nuffers 1241

In what was billed to be a tight contest, the Nuffers snapped out of their celler-dwelling funk to bring the noise to a sleepy Freycinet outfit. The Nuffers engine room still spluttered along but Simmo and Charlie drooped a couple of circa 150s to carry the can. Sloane continues on his brownlow-fancied form at the Bay while ANB and Matera revert back to their historic mean. Under performance was the story of the match for the Packers as many an old dog fell flat with barely enough zip to lick the Nuffers boots.

Lilacs 1065 def by Vultures 1376

Throughout a weekend of mid-field mayhem, the flag favourites reinforced their strength across the board as they comfortably dismantled the Purple Haze. With a rock-solid defence lead by Doc (149) and killer forward set up (Yeo 150) the Vultures we able to quickly putty over the sub-par...
Man, this season hey? Another week, another horror! And it's only round 6!!

Nank, Rocky, Beams, Fyfe, Captain Dangerfield- it's been a disaster!

Heck, I had Doch's 149, Yeo's 150 and WHE's 125 and still barely cracked 2k.

Man, looking around the grounds, I might have even gotten above par with that rubbish!

What is going on this season!? :D Anyone do well this week?
Ok, this week is more like it.

Teams over the break.
Ok, so 2200 - 2300 seems to be about par this week. Not bad considering the carnage we've seen at the rookie level.

Stats will probably be late this evening as I won't get much of a chance to get on for the next few.

How have we all gone?
Round 4 was International moment of laughter day round in the ORFFA.
Read over for the review....
Think we can sum this up with a picture.

Teams over the break
I'm gunna open this post by making you all feel better about yourselves.


I can't remember scoring a worse score than that! Awful stuff!

Danger (C), Treloar's 72, Roughy's 53 and Watson's 44 the highlights, but there was a lot of players down on their usual form.

Not even Dahl could save my score!

Hopefully we see a few better scores in the comments :D
Ok, got another Thursday night game this week, so we get a team early.

Not too much to write about with the two teams playing, so we can take a little more time before deciding what to do with Gawn :D
