2018 FF Original discussion thread


#2086

Make that 1500. My side does this every ■■■■■■ year!


#2087

Neela’s gonna be furious when he sees what Gaff’s done. His FF season is done.


#2088

Wowee, I’m going to make a semi final!


#2089

This is what makes trading so vital, those meh guys that don’t make your 18 become utterly keys to progressing deep into finals. Happy for @The_Mad_Bomber1 you took the risk and you’re reaping the rewards and that “old run down” Geary is dominating for you. I still think @wimmera1 can win it also, I just think you ran into a hot Allblack side.


#2090

Just saw it, what was he thinking?!?


#2091

Oh FFS.

This season is effed.

Gaff’s differential va depth ain’t gonna cut it.

Let’s see how far we can get now! :man_facepalming:t4:


#2092

I still think you can win it Neela, but I think the gap is now well and truly closed from the rest now.


#2093

Yep, definitely as wide open as it gets now.


#2094

Bad luck WOB, Deledio missing out on second half junk time and some out of the box scores from Sheppard, Johannisen and Atkins probably the difference.

Starting my Bulldogs 2016 run now


#2095

Well, drat.
Our lowest score since a round 13 bye week.

The team’s going out bush for some soul-searching.


#2096

At least I won something this week!!


#2097

Been an impressive season @fogdog. Well done. A month ago you were the last team I wanted to meet on finals. Some very bad luck with injuries eventually caught up with you.

#2100

Doesn’t look any better alphabetically.


#2101

Per the last few years, will the FA’s be on Thursday nights during finals?


#2102

Great question to ask 1 week into finals!


#2103

I literally just remembered, and went back to last years thread to have a look.


#2104

I am happy to change FA night to 9:00pm Thursday night AEST.


#2105

Hopefully Stanley comes back this week, would be handy to have him, Prestia and Cutler back, Cutler especially, need to sort the debacle that is my backline…
