How is this possible?

Post by Macca on Sun Mar 29, 2009 11:12 am

Ryan Griffen (my AS) and Daniel Cross (my tackler) were both very solid tacklers last year...cant remember the exact numbers but Cross would have been in the 4-5 bracket, Griffen the 3-4 bracket.

Neither player had A SINGLE GAME without a tackle.

Today they are both on 0 tackles well into third quarter.

How f***ed can this game be sometimes?


I am sure I will get showered with sympathy.

Just a discussion point I guess.

The fact that Cross hasnt had 1 tackle is a huge surpirse. I did a quick check and he avg 4.7 last year and never had a game where he didnt get at least 1. Still time I guess for him to get a few.

If it was me I would be trading his arse away as a lesson for the rest of your team. And cause im a nice guy I dont mind taking your left overs.

Can you not put him in tackles next week against Kangaroos?
In fact, leave him out altogether.
and Griff.

This is a mighty team.
I might be able to match you in possies and maybe allstar but the rest I will struggle with this week - particularly in goals.
It will require some judicious choices. confused

Sooo...I don't get it.
You had a great season last year. Lost one game I believe?
Every time you had a hole in your team, it was flexible enough for someone else to step e.g. in the above team any one of six players would be a successful all star.
You were looking good in the finals but just one week blew away your season - this was always likely to happen when our league gets to the prelim stage.

And yet you are not content!

You should be sitting on Mt Fuji contemplating the contortions the rest of us plebs have to go through just to get a decent team of 14 on the park.

Relax. Enjoy the ride.




Just don't wobble this week. Wink

No its frustrating.
I have won more games than anyone in the last two years, yet have no flags to show for the wins.
I know as well as anyone that the 'window' closes quick and that other teams are building as we speak.
I must get it right in 2009.

My season starts this week.

Macca, in Rnd 1 you would have beaten 5 of the 11 other teams and drawn with 1.

Its the luck of the draw sometimes. Chin up...you will be on top of the mountain next Sunday after beating the all mighty Terriers.
