For those who take it way too seriously

Hi my name is Stripey and I have a trading problem... it's been two weeks since my last trade...

Anyway, courtesy of ROB's omission I officially ate my second donut of the year... a 2,400 saw me rise in the ranking 13 places, now up to 1,092 overall.

Main issue (apart from the obvious need for ROB to return) atm is the injury concern to Rohan Marshall but I have Jezza Cameron on the bench as cover so should be fine for another week.

How is everyone else faring?? Any chance ROB returns, I think Sauce wasnt too bad...
Due to time constraints AFL Teams are not posted this week but for SC the biggest news is ROB is not in the 22 with Cameron from WCE also missing.

Good luck for those of you in SC and ORFF* finals and also those chasing higher overall SC rankings.
Well, its been a long season and with only 3 weeks to go, its time to recap how the TS Trading Games comp is going.... After being the Top Dog for the majority of the season, my daughters team *cough* got overtaken last week and I've fallen further behind... I ran out of trades 3 weeks ago so will be interesting to see how my backup fares... I already have Luke Ryan on the bench and have carried Jelly as well... No more injuries please!!!

It would be good to put some names to some teams.... so pls add in the comments and let us know how many trades y'all have left!

ORFFA Fellowship Round

Fellowship Round is a chance for all of us to gather together in the wide white virtual void that is the world wide web (not to be confused with Antarctica, as our white void is far warmer and has far fewer penguins), raise a glass of something to our fellow ORFFA coaches and celebrate the fact that our love for fantasy football brings our lovely band of misfits together each week. All past and present ORFFA coaches are invited to party in the virtual void, with or without penguins.

I am not sure I have much love for fantasy football this year, my actual Supercoach side can go get stuffed, but there is always plenty of love for all in the ORFFA forums, penguins excluded.

What an exciting round! Terry’s mob had to have their game of the year to have a crack at the 8 and fell on their sword and it was over to Jen’s troops to play JC’s crew in a finals deciding match!! Likely one of the most exciting matches in ORFFA history was played in which the Lilacs got it done by a single point to beat the Battlers and lock in their position at 8th! Wow you simply cannot ask for better footy than that folks.

Listen up kiddies. Your regularly scheduled reviewer has lapsed into a post-holiday, work-trudgery semi-coma, so you got me instead.
I’m Mrs Walladge, the Goonies tuck shop head of catering.
Think of your stereotypical, 1980’s blue-rinsed, meek and mild, lovable home cook; now picture the exact opposite. I’m the straight-shooting, spade a spade, no fcuks given dragon-lady formerly of Starcourt Mall.
So, shut up, form and orderly queue and take your medicine.

For the uninitiated, here’s the award system I work to:

The Package award (a Double Crumbed Sausage Sanga with a Fruitbox on the side - the gold standard of lunch orders) – to the BOG, the complete game, the gun…you get it.

The Sunnyboy award – to the new kid on the block showing how it’s done.

The Sherbet Fountain award – to the blue-mooner shooting his metaphorical load all over the shop.

The Redskin/Chicco award (or any other PC-unfriendly treat you can think of) – to the bad form bunion in a cringeworthy performance.

Wagga Wagga Wombats 1239 def Whitsunday Warriors 1056

Warriors with a finals berth on the line. Trying to cut my lunch as the chief donut seller. No, you don’t!
Enter the wet sail Wombats to kick sand in everyone’s eyes.

Package – Lycett!
Sunnyboy – Rozee
Sherbie – Setterfield (I fell the need, the need for Teague)
Redskin – Roughead (see ball, get ball…in face)

Package – Boak!
Sunnyboy – Ben King (in the 2s)
Sherbie – JJK (7 straight if you don’t mind)
Redskin – Hitler-esque Tarrant

Marble Bar Misfits 1168 def by Iron Knob Codpieces 1188

Well no one said this game was fair, did they?
With an injury list to rival Collingwood, the Misfits gladly welcomed back Ryder and Weller. But, no matter how sweet it smells, puttying a gaping hole with honey is never a healthy fix.

Package – Daniel
Sunnyboy – Taranto (boy o boy, wowee)
Sherbie – Answerth
Redskin – Laverde

Package – Macrae
Sunnyboy – H Clark
Sherbie – Darling
Well, the finals are upon us if that's your thing... for me its not, I play for overall...

2,457 was good enough this weekend to see me rise 140 places to 1,169 overall... the Ryan injury my main concern...

How is your team tracking, is it all coming together like well laid plans do or is it a complete shemozzle, bouncing from one disaster to the next....
Teams to come... Hurn confirmed out again, more carnage on its way shortly.. :eek:

EDIT: Actually it's not too bad - Fyfe and Hately return... all is good in the world

ORFFA Round 15 – Bad Hair Round.

There were plenty of upsets in the AFL this week, but not very many in the ORFFA where most of the season defining matchups went the way of the favourite.

Warriors 1073 defeated by the Codpieces 1194

upload_2019-7-23_16-24-1.png VS upload_2019-7-23_16-24-17.png

The Cods continue their late season run whilst the Warriors stumbled to their 3rd loss in the last 4 rounds. Nett result had both teams hold their respective ladder positions.

For the Warriors JJ (Mr Bad hair himself) had a shocker with 36, Cameron belted out 134, Harmes managed 107 but the rest of the team mostly stayed out of his way, Callum Brown gets the coaches encouragement award.

For the Cods Macrae (120) and Darling (125) starred, Hunter Clark stuck his hand up to join the Misfits this offseason and Harbrow stunk.

Next up the Cods face a very unimposing task away against the Misfires whilst the Warriors visit the land of the Wombats in what should be a close if uninspiring contest.

Lilacs 1245 defeat the Wombats 1021

upload_2019-7-23_16-24-47.png VS upload_2019-7-23_16-24-59.png

Lilacs move within a game of the 8, and with a healthy points for will have genuine hopes of getting there, the Wombats run at finals has hit a hurdle with 2 losses on the trot and with only 2 rounds to go it’s now a bridge too far.

For the Lilacs Duncan (123) and Amon (102) looked impressive but it was more the fact that they had only one score under 60 that saw them run out easy winners, Gibbons onfield would have given him the RS nod this week, but being mostly shit for 16 games meant Bolton stole his thunder, nice little tabby that one..

The Wombats also had 2 tons, BSmith (127) went 50% over his average to prove what he is capable of whilst highlighting his savage Std Dev in the same play, Ed Curnow (116) is clearly in love with Teague and playing at the level he always seemed capable of, the rest, well mostly they arrived on time and...
Well, an interesting weekend - personally I got screwed over by the late Hurn out.. Had Logue available as cover but had already loopholed him to take Brodie Smith's score off the bench... oh well, sometimes I think I actually cost myself more points by trying to be too clever..

To support this, last week I reversed my planned trades on the Friday but forgot to fix my emergencies for looping... over the weekend i couldn't work out why my score was so poor but there it was Brodie Smith and his 98 sitting on the bench with no E...

My team scored 2,422 to move up to 1309 overall.. my daughters TG team (now tradeless) sits at 726 overall after a 2,448...

Anyway, enough about me... how did y'all fare this weekend...
