    Round 14 (AFL 17) … Bleak Week
    In the Southern Hemisphere, the third week of July is considered the Bleak Week. No better way to celebrate the cold, miserable Australian winter than chasing a bag of wind through the ankle-deep slush of a Tasmanian footy paddock. But for four of our teams Bleak Week has another meaning, we don’t want to be around these teams as husband and wife play against each other.

    Gundagai Grasshoppers v Mt Beauty Uglies
    Nunawading Nuffas v Foul Bay Chickens
    Waikikamoocow Incorrigibles v Wagga Wagga Wombats
    Whitsunday Warriors v Gariwerd Cockatoos
    Darraweit Guim Dirigibles v Lovely Banks Lilacs
    Wineglass Bay Packers v Marble Bar Misfits
    Charlies Opening Spelunkers v Venus Bay Vultures
    Birdsville Battlers v Larrikin Lagoon Lefties
    Cradle Mountain Devils v Iron Knob Codpieces

    Cradle Mountain’s provisional Round 14 (ORFFA) team

    In: D Zaharakis, S Grigg (subject to a fitness test)
    Out: L Shiels (hamstring), D Petrie (omitted)

    Def: N Vlastuin, L Spurr, J Lever, Z Jones (D McStay)
    Mid: S Pendlebury, D Zaharakis, J Gresham, B Kennedy (J Redden)
    Ruc: J Roughead
    Fwd: D Zorko, S Johnson, T Membrey, J Steele (D Petrie)
    Inter: S Grigg, S Gilbert (N Smith)

    I am going straight from work to Hisense Arena tomorrow night to watch the Australian Boomers vs the Pac 12 Allstars so have named a provisional full 15 man Devils team. Thursday night players are in bold. Depending on the AFL teams some minor changes might be made to the Cradle Mountain team before the start of the Friday night game.

    The experiment of Zorko in the midfield was very short-lived. As a team last round the Devils only just made the 1K mark and only had one player score a ton, barely with Pendles scoring exactly 100. We were hoping that Stevie J could turn the clock back a few years to 2013 when he was the highest averaging forward in the ORFFA with 117 points per game, instead he managed less than 40% of that output against Mount Beauty with a score of 44 in the role of F1. In an unprecedented turn of events such was Johnson’s level of disappointment with his own performance he offered full refunds to anyone that purchased tickets (whether by cash or credit) to the Stevie J show. Cradle Mountain are quite happy to continue riding the Stevie J rollercoaster – there have been a lot more highs than lows during the mercurial Stevie J’s time at the Devils, however Johnson has been banned indefinitely by the club from selling tickets to his show which his team-mates and a couple of Uglies players claimed was a Red Hot Chilli Peppers tribute and should have been titled One Hot Minute because that was about all he delivered against Mount Beauty.

    OOOHH big round! Ive been waiting for this week. Was so interesting that both family duels ended up in this round - we actually didnt intend for it

    ive named Cunningham as a FWD emergency, however Im likely to drop him prior to lockout if I can.

    @dmandrews I'll also be at Hisense for the Boomers game. Was there on Tuesday too. PM me if you want to catch up, let me know what time you'll be arriving :)

    As someone who watched Stevie live last weekend, he owes me and my family a refund :)

    Dirigibles' Thursday night players:

    DEF: e - Stratton
    MID: e - Hill
    Ruck - e - Ceglar

    Same logic as last week I guess. At least I've got emergencies covered if the selection table is as all over the shop as previous weekends.

    Gibson & Duryea down back
    Mitchell & Lewis in middle

    Lefties interim coach looked like losing the gig after the first week, when he managed to not name a full team, fortunately the named players responded well to the whip, this week's team looks like this;

    DEFENDER
    Josh Gibson, Taylor DURYEA, Nick Haynes, Tomas Bugg - Will Schofield
    MIDFIELDER
    Sam Mitchell, Jordan Lewis, Matt Priddis, Brendon Goddard - Jimmy Toumpas
    RUCK
    Todd Goldstein
    FORWARD
    Jay Schulz, Leigh Montagna, Tom Lynch, Josh Hill - Matthew Taberner
    INTERCHANGE
    Jake Lloyd. Josh Smith - Nick Suban
