Oh dear...

Will there be wailing and gnashing of teeth at the House of Ridge today? scratch

Both tacklers (Cross and Griffen) had one tackle each.

Fortunately, Higgins got a few but it makes for another interesting weekend.

Hmmm. Spoke too soon. My tackler has only had two. Shocked

An AFL weekend has many twists and turns.
Seriously, how many times have you gone to bed on Friday night thinking "I have this game covered/I am no chance" to sit in front of the stats on Sunday and think "I got smashed/I am still in this".

I recall a GCFFL grand final in 2007...Scott Lucas had started poorly...no hang on...I don't talk about Black Sunday anymore.

Yes. I agree.
But I think this year is different.
I have never experienced such enormous swings in my scores.
This weekend might be another where I will be lucky to score 300.
The reasons continue to baffle me.

I told you Gerry, its all about 'go to' and 'release' players.
Teams chop and change these guys. These are the guys who get 13 marks (and the associated high possessions) one week and then get 2 marks the next.

The only consistency is with the 'inside' predator type players who get their own ball. But they tend not to mark as much.

Those who rely on delivery or have 'outside' or sideways 'crab' tendencies, will be up and down.

Well one thing is for sure, after the truckers game earlier on this year, I dont take any win for granted on a Friday night. In that game I had 200+ AS points and still lost!

But man I would love a win against the Ridgies. I might be wrong but I dont think ive ever beaten Macca. Looking over our team sheets, neither team will post a convincing score. So if I get lucky enough to win it will be hardly anything to brag about.

My team is a joke.

I have ZERO chance in 2009, unless I can secure a trade or two that stabilises the ship.

At the moment I am not worthy of playing finals.

Your sitting 4th on the ladder, I would hardly say your team is a joke!

Add a marker and a tackler and your back in business.

I thought I would take this opportunity to really rub it in. Looks like a mighty upset with the Warthogs posting at present 359 with Brad Green possessions to come whilst the Maulers are on 320 with Nick Maxwell's marks to come.

So I'm calling it. Bring on the fat lady to do her last hurrah.

Tyson Edwards 115 AS and Cassisi with 83AS certainly helped the cause Razz

Stay tuned for the Annual Terriers Fire Smoulder Sale!

It all depends on how we go during the split round.
If we go well, I will delay the sale for a week.
If not, Round 13 will be it!
