    Option 1, agree with @fresh @choppers
    everybody loves a grand final, the build up, the drama, the fallout!

    Would love a top 4....I didn’t think I’d be in with a chance this season but since I am I guess I better have an opinion.
    Option 1 for me if that is the go.
    Do we really need to play each other once? I’d like to play finals. Bit stiff if you finish 3rd by only marginal points.
    I’ll probs lose most my games coming home so my opinion means nothing really.
    Option 1
    Thanks

    Well the Coolgardie season is now officially shot.

    David Astbury has been sidelined for a long time, but atleast I had some quality defensive cover.
    Stefan Martin was having a shocker of a season before getting old-man back pain.
    Liam Duggan does a hamstring.
    James Sicily goes down with a 2021 season ending ACL.
    Jaeger O'Meara then breaks his hand.

    Meanwhile Orazio Fantasia has hardly been sighted all season.
    Jamie Macmillan goes home for the birth of his kid (can't hold that against him).

    Am I allowed to experiment as a coach, by playing players out of position to see how they fare (Seeing if Jayden Short would make a good full-forward, or if Ollie Wines has the ability to make it as a small ruckman)??? :p:p:p

    Why not? Beveridge decided Dunkley was a ruckman on the weekend and robbed him of 30 plus points. Seeing how the dogs played, he would have killed it if he was receiving the ball rather than flapping at it.

    @JPK the lock has been placed on Adelaide and Brisbane already and I can't move any of those players off the field, you need to unlock round 14 please.

    @walesy @Len are one of you able to help out with lockouts please. Looking specifically at the Adelaide and Brisbane players already being locked out...

    Hi mate, I've set your league to the last game for now, not sure if you are doing full rolling lockout but the rest are.

    I've messaged Les and asked him to change the Bris/Ade "fixture" to be the same date and time as the last game of the round.

    Hey guys, sorry for the absence. Im still here, just been busy with RL stuff (mainly work) and all SC stuff has taken a back seat.

    All good again and I am back.

    Whilst the Bunyips are struggling we are looking forward to some big recruits coming in (hopefully) as we look towards the 2021 draft.

    again, sorry lads.

    Marty

    High-level AFL talks are underway to shorten quarters and extend next year's season to 28 rounds, per @TomBrowne7 https://t.co/laxGKef4kp

    A permanent footy frenzy, shit I hope not!

    28 rounds! That'd be bonkers. First of all, that means each team has 11 repeat games, less so assuming byes. Secondly, that means that assuming a March 4 (Thursday Night FTW) start, there would still only be 26 weeks to get to September. NRL does 26 weeks with 24 rounds and 2 byes. To get 28 rounds, you'd have to start earlier or do more super rounds.

    @bryzza I think it was option 1 which is 1 v 2 at the end of 17 rounds so that we all played each other.
    If it was option 2 we would have already started the final series.

    @JPK is that correct?

    Correct. AFL round 18 will be the ORFFU Grand Final between Groote Eylandt @YAD69 and Nuytsland @bryzza
    Good luck to both coaches.
