    Iconic representations of the Avengers, to be updated over time..

    1st, because it's mine, new and an Avenger would drive one, it drives with a vengeance :p

    And a few randoms;
    The Avengerishness is evident in this one..

    Potentially future use but not letting anyone else have it anyway

    Round 1 vs the Virgins.
    We should be worried, but having taken advantage of a few virgins in our time feel the occasion won't overawe us.
    Squad yet to be finalised, but can already feel its innate awesome at some distance.

    Cockburn's cocky strut somewhat missing after being beaten up by a bunch of Useless Virgins, still some players were less shit than others, round 1 B&F votes below;

    5 Callan Ward - Stunned he was still there at pick 21, now captains 2 ORF clubs
    4 Adam Treloar - Our first pick kicks off the year in the style we hoped
    3 Marc Murphy - Injury concerns saw him slide to pick 117, so far so good
    2 Andrew Gaff - Possibly viewed as a reach pick at 44, but again so far so good
    1 Tom Sheridan - Pick 245 steps up to the plate and belts it out of the park
    -1 Heath Shaw - Don't pull that shit again buddy or you're playing NEAFL

    Ive heard a few people bagging Heath Shaw for his game on the weekend. What was so bad about it?
    I listened to most of the game on the radio and the commentators were raving about how well he was playing. So, Ive been surprised to see negative comments. What happened?

    30 disposals is a great start, 50%!!!!!!! De is shit, Zac Dawson would do better, his clanger count was 8! not sure that's ever been reached before... In the babes world of AFL fantasy he probably still looked good, but in SC terms he was beyond awful..

    Cockburn's rocky start continues, 0 and 2 was not anticipated

    Round 2 B&F results;

    5 Eddie Betts - At his best
    4 Scott Thompson - Dominant game, deserves 5, but nah
    3 Daisy Thomas - May be coming back to form, maybe just a flash in the pan
    3 Jack Martin - Great game from a kid who's been belted by injuries
    2 Kurt Tippett - Big dude looking good, might be playing in the Avenger's ruck next week
    1 Ed Curnow - Late in did well
    Honorable mention to Lachie Hunter with 119 in reserves

    5 Callan Ward, Eddie Betts
    4 Adam Treloar, Scott Thompson
    3 Marc Murphy, Daisy Thomas, Jack Martin
    2 Andrew Gaff, Kurt Tippett
    1 Tom Sheridan, Ed Curnow

    Cockburn slowly building a list to Avenge, that latest being Drouin who lifted from 1193 the week before to a huge 1488 on the back of a strong midfield performance, enough to see off the 1328 of the Avengers comfortably.

    Round 3 B&F results;
    5 Heath Shaw - About time you showed up!
    4 Garrick Ibbotson - Last man picked this week, rose to the challenge
    3 Callan Ward - Nuff said
    2 Eddie Betts - Proving small fwds can be fantasy relevant
    1 Adam Treloar - Looks shit in his new prison uniform, still goes ok though

    Tally
    8 Ward
    7 Betts
    5 Shaw, Treloar
    4 Thompson, Ibbotson
    3 Murphy, Thomas, Martin
    2 Gaff, Tippett
    1 Sheridan, Curnow

    Cockburn sit 0 and 4, the latest loss to the 29ers.
    Team selection committee is under serious scrutiny after managing to put only 1174 of the 1740 points the full Avengers squad scored on the park.

    Round 3 B&F results;
    5 Ward
    4 Gaff
    3 Betts
    2 Treloar
    1 Boyd

    Tally
    13 Ward
    10 Betts
    7 Treloar
    6 Gaff
    5 Shaw
    4 Thompson, Ibbotson
    3 Murphy, Thomas, Martin
    2 Tippett
    1 Sheridan, Curnow, Boyd

    Shit player of the month award goes to Lachie Hunter, named twice for scores of 79 and 66, benched twice and scores 119 and 124, not falling for it this week buddy.

    Cockburn sit 1 and 4, finally winning a game, though with no disrespect to the Woylies they drafted a team for the future, not last week.
    Team selection committee busy patting themselves on the back after harvesting 1357 of the 1768 points on offer, not sure why though, being less crap isn't the same as being awesome..

    Round 5 B&F results;
    5 Boyd - The old warhorse keeps on giving
    4 Treloar - Did ok in his jail pajamas
    3 Hunter - Responded to the whip well
    3 Gaff - Wasn't overly confident when drafting him, but he's been doing the job
    2 Thompson
    1 Ward

    Tally
    14 Ward
    11 Treloar
    10 Betts
    9 Gaff
    6 Thompson, Boyd
    5 Shaw
    4 Ibbotson
    3 Murphy, Thomas, Martin, Hunter
    2 Tippett
    1 Sheridan, Curnow

    Next week we play host to the Jan Juc Ducks, the water will be spiked and the beer warm

    Cockburn sit 2 and 4, beating a strong Jan Juc Ducks team 1508 to 1406 in a genuinely high scoring affair.
    The spiked water and warm beer trick could become a home ground tradition
    The entire squad scored a team record of 2013, let down by a couple of Dockers for who we will welcome any trade approach at the right time.

    Round 6 B&F results;
    5 Hunter - Has responded well to considered coaching of late, this week a huge 154
    4 Shaw - The yo yo was up this week, 143 a nice ROI
    3 Thomas - Unlucky to come third with 141
    2 Ward - Capitan my capitan
    1 Boyd - Delivering far beyond expectations
    0 Treloar - We still like him, a bit

    Tally
    16 Ward
    11 Treloar
    10 Betts
    9 Gaff, Shaw
    8 Hunter
    7 Boyd
    6 Thompson, Thomas
    4 Ibbotson
    3 Murphy, Martin
    2 Tippett
    1 Sheridan, Curnow

    Next week we visit Rutherglen, our favourite wine region, could be some serious headaches come Monday.

    @Len - happy to talk about Ibbo and/or Sheridan in the upcoming trade periods if that is who you were referring to above

    Much enjoyed the wine thanks @tyze1 a good time was had by all and we were fortunate to limp across the line..

    Round 7 B&F results;
    5 Boyd
    4 Ward
    3 Curnow
    2 Treloar
    1 Shaw

    Tally
    20 Ward
    13 Treloar
    12 Boyd
    10 Betts, Shaw
    9 Gaff
    8 Hunter
    6 Thompson, Thomas
    4 Ibbotson, Curnow
    3 Murphy, Martin
    2 Tippett
    1 Sheridan

    Next week we host the Butchers who will be looking to snap a losing streak and we look prime targets on last weeks insipid total.
    This is our Rivaly Round match, which originated when their manager @insider misappropriated Hopper and Keays in rapid succession when they had been clearly earmarked as Avengers.
