    Np.

    Should probably do the fixtures too. That's done now.

    You would be smiling at my choice of opponent now thokash. However, don't forget who the freo coach is; RtB has a bit of history with "magical" late changes.

    Welp, think my matchup is over before it's half done. Oh well.

    Glamas and their Sydney players have set up a commanding lead against the Magicians too.

    I have live scores as:
    TAB 1222/13 vs MAL 891/10. Not over but Magicians will need some big scores to catch up to Glamas.
    SAR 782/8 vs POP 465/6. All over red rover

    Thanks for the update on your game port. The glamas certainly enjoyed the "derby" match. Against the magicians we might just have displayed a bit of magic of our own - stealing the goodies while the audience were distracted with RtB's antics.

    I missed Hodge's score in that calculation to that it makes much difference. Savages get 1450+ and Pyrite can't even make it to 1200.

    Glamas win by ~30 points as I have it so a 1 v 2 GF showdown.

    Now, I don't wanna pick sides or nothing, but I don't want to be typing out 5nsy this time next week, ok?

    Please.

    If it were to eventuate that I won my 5th ORFFL premiership on the weekend....that wouldn't be the name change I'd be requesting.

    Belly has had shoulder surgery, Buddy is in doubt. My plan is, to avoid embarrasment, not enter a team and hope @walesy does not activate the fixture meaning the glamas win as a result of the H&A fixtures. Simples. Anyone not on board with this?

    That was my plan also. Sadly, PL is the legendary fixture guy, and it looks like he's already done his thing!

    Good luck to both of you!

    I thought I broke the fixtures last time. :D

    Someone was quicker than me on updating the round deadline so should only get half the credit.

    So am I going to win by default?

    I'm not sure how I feel about that.

    I mean obviously I live for the contest, but the idea that I could strike such utter despair in the heart and mind of an opponent that they refuse to even turn up to an ORFFL Grand Final? Well, I suppose that has a certain appeal too.

    TBH, it's not you that "strike(s) such utter despair in the heart and mind of an opponent" but rather the inadequacies of my team. I'll enter a team (for what it is worth) but it is the disintegration of the glamas in the last week that has tortured me.

    Nineteen rounds of going OK, albeit without expecting to win the H&A series let alone get through to the finals and now - bugger. I thought I could improve this team to the point where in 2020 it would be very competitiive - so it is all a bit soon. Throw what you like at me 4nsy, but remember when the boot is on the other foot I'll have great pleasure in reminding you of your words. :p

    @graeme
    Your team performed admirably considering your injuries. Gowers and former Savage SlyPork pulling out scores they're not usually capable of, and Danger going completely off-tap. Glad to have you in the ORFFL and to see a team that's had three owners and has always shown promise win the minor premiership and a deep finals run.

    @walesy
    It's that time of year. Again. How do i do that username thingy?

    Well done 4nsy, too strong. Thank you for the generous comments and (finally a) welcome.

    The glamas will be back stronger and even more glamorous in 2019. When does trading start?
