Round 1: The honeymoon is over

Post by Actionman on Wed Mar 05, 2014 6:42 am

There's nothing like the damp smell of rotting wedding cake and diapers to get the blood flowing for a season of SHB.

Jaffa your team is looking as distraught and lifeless as your bank account must be about now - bloody expensive weddings....

Round 1 line ups definitely didn't go the way of the Targeryans with Mateo, Paulo, Jackson and Simms all startin from the interchange and injuries to O'Neill and Taufua keeping them out of the action - still with no Cronk - the Drags will fancy their chances. Even my two man back row of Fensom and Papalii should be too strong for Houston, Horo and Cordener.

10 years we've been at this shit now, and for 10 years both of us have made the finals. I'm gonna make it my mission to see you fail this year and become the also ran I know you are.

In other games:
I'm picking the Karruptas to lay waste to OA
Zooms to be too strong for Kings prep
LFB to just pip the hipsters who I'm picking to push for a finals spot this year
And the M&Ms to spray their candy juice all over the SHams

Prepare to get d-schooled Daniel-san.

Now I don't want to be too harsh on that special needs class of a team you've got there so I'll break it down into a 'positivity sandwich'.

You DO have a couple of genuinely good players there. I'm sure no one would say no to Inglis or Choc in their squad.

However...
The rest of your team is shit.
WAY too shit to win the comp this year.
And soon you'll have a baby and you'll probably never win it ever.
Shame.
And you don't actually suit hats.

But I hear Elijah Taylor is a quite a nice guy so you've got that going for you.

All home teams to win this weekend although the Ackerbattle should be close as will the Hipsters Balncas.

Your trash talk is about as entertaining and original as your groomsman speech Bingo, so I won't hear any shit about lifelessness.

I'm not super stoked with the Jaffas squad, happy to admit that. But your squad is essentially ACKA cast offs. You are the Adelaide Rams (look it up kids).

In fact, just as with life, you get all your best talent from raiding my previous squads. Don't call me the also ran, I'm the trailblazer, kiddo.

10 years is a long ass time, a lot has changed. You've found a woman that doesn't try to run through windows to avoid you, James has been nonsensical, disinterested, departed and returned again, Wiremu has had more terrible haircuts than all the Baldwin brothers combined, jasper has eaten all the pies then gone intercontinental on it, nick has simply fucked off and left, Timmah has posted more web links than YouTube itself, Pete has gone from raging against the machine to being the man behind the machine and almost driving it into the ground before even finishing the draft, Danny has been forced out of a thousand small time pubs, including embarrassingly from Hamilton, and Dreas and Dartschool, they, well....fuck knows what those degenerates have done....

But one thing that hasn't changed - I still know more about league than you do. You waste you energy trying to stop me, go for it. But as the dragons relocate for the umpteenth time, I will sit back at the ACKA and watch the glory days match on.

To quote a great man, I'm just better at life than you. Deal with it.

Tough run first up for the Blancas!! Hipsters actually looking like they have down a little bit of research this year and have put together a formidable team.

Still I just cant take the backrow combination of Hoffman, Rochow, T rex seriously. I think bunnies and roosters will be a low scoring affair removing maloney from the equation and I think the cowboys are going to pump the raiders!!!!!!!

Admittedly T_Rex is a bit of a hail mary, and will need to rediscover some form, but your back row doesn't exactly inspire fear either.

Plenty of points potential in my all-ethnic three quarter line, a back line so dark that even Lote Tuqiri is afraid of it.

I've moved big Sam Burgess into the back row, that should be enough to allay your concerns, the Hipsters by 6 first up.

What's the world come to, a bidding war over Michael Witt? I don't even need him but thought I'd take the punt on a 2nd kicker. Anyone need a half? Call me...

I'm also confused - is there a new scoring criteria for old useless nancyboys? I seriously doubt he would take the kicking tee.

Unrelated note

You've got to be kidding me !!
I didn't realise Ben would start puppeteering James' team so quickly!!

Brenton Lawrence for lame ass Zillman?

James you traded in your first round pick and rookie of the year last year for a guy who is struggling to make the first grade lineup at his club.

AND you already have about 5 fullbacks and five eighths???

Fucking SHENANIGANS

He's in Melbourne at the moment isn't he? Reason you woke up with a sore arse and $5 in your hand is that he was fucking your ass and wiping it on your curtains as a present. The $5 was a little bribe for your cheap self so you wouldn't tell.

OK then, I want to be a James to somebody's Ben. Well, not really, but you catch my drift. All i want is a shout out and recognition of my efforts when you beat Ben in the grand final, as that is the closest i will get to that happening.

My first round draft pick was SBW. Who's got a back up fullback/five eighth they want to trade? All offers considered

I thought because he now had a lovely, way too good for him missus that James wouldn't feel the need to be sodomised by Ben any more.

Ben, it was a good try and while it's always funny to show up James for being an idiot, you've been called out this time. Reverse the trade and let's go about our daily lives.

Yeah Ben, do the right thing. Have a moral compass. James, never trade with Ben. I've been playing this game since '04 and never has a possible trade with Ben been good for me. As such, I've not made a single trade. Period. The longevity of this competition is reliant on having competitive squads!

I've said it from the start. Don't make deals with the devil.

I guess the question is, after all the public backlash, is James still happy with the trade? If he is, then my opinion is it stands. I'm not defending Ben, but if I had scammed James, I wouldn't give a shit what anyone else says.

But, I wouldn't be a big enough cunt to steal tackles from an SHB baby.

James offered me a trade I said one of your draft forwards for Zillman - as I don't need him anymore with Milford and Johnson
- he chose Lawrence.

By the way zillman is the 3rd best non-kicking five-eighth in the comp an he's in the prime of his career. It's not like he's not getting a quality player. It's not Lachlan Coote for McCullogh or Pridis for Lafai or some of the other shockers we've had over the years. James is desperate for backs and he has a strong pack.

If James wants to offer me another trade I'll consider that, but not you muppets telling me to address my moral compass. When you guys would have accepted that trade too.

William zilliam achieved the last three of those with his knee second reonstruction (now up to three) by the time he was twenty one. He may not be forty but his knees are.

Tbf he was the sixth highest try scorer at the titans last year. Probably would have scored a couple more too, if he hadn't got injured. Again.

AND those other trades have no relevance. Idris for priddis was a bum for a bum. Coote for a-mac was a gun for a gun. Coote scored 15 4 pointers for me that year while macca would have languished on the bench behind luke. It was a beneficial to both parties. That's kinda how these things are meant to work. Way to taint the season before it's begun fellahs.

Mu I am surprised you had time to contribute to the forum between texty wexys to your misses...

We all know I know nothing about league but I do know i need a back. Ben Offered WAEREA-HARGREAVES (that was the first trade) and I declined and re offered with Lawrence - probably got double bluffed but it was a fair approach and I am a bigg enough man to accept it, notwithstanding I don't know the past performance of these players.

What didn't happen was any collusion and how dare you question my integrity. More time looking after your own team and less time worrying about others. If you don't want me back in the competition fine. I will walk right now, just say the words and it's done. Let's put it to a vote. I will resign right now by cutting all my players, playing TOA will essentially be a bye - although apparently it is already. I have started a new topic so place your votes... a no show vote constitutes a yes you want me to resign. 24 hours from now votes will be counted.

After the results are finalised then shut the fuck up and lets get on with the season you bunch of pussies.

Danny danny. I am sorry you don't understand, I forgot they don't teach interpretation at bar school - well they do but just dance interpretation for your little tricks with your cocktail glasses.

Danny, you are a deer that lives in a herd. It's a nice existence, you are safe from the roaming wolves who are trying to eat you as the number of other deer in your herd, just like you danny, means the probability of getting eaten is reduced. But it means, Danny, you eat dry, trodden on grass that all your thousands of deer, so called, mates have walked all over. Dry trodden on grass isn't good danny, it will do the job but it's not exciting, it's just existing. Is this the life you want to live? Like a fat little deer? Do you want to live in a herd where you sacrifice your mates for your own survival? YOu would be happy to see your mates die so you can live? Cos that's how a herd works.

I am a wolf danny. I live in a pack. In my pack we hunt cooperatively, running down large game, like you danny, and tearing it apart. We cooperate in caring for our  wounded and sick pack members as well as the young. We get to sleep in fresh grass that hasn't been trodden on and we don't sacrifice our mates so we as individuals live.

Your team, it's a herd. You might do well but you are nonetheless a herd. What kind of existence is that?  The Old Al is a pack, we are prepared to give everything up to secure our integrity and our pride even to the detriment of existence. You, danny, you can just keep munching on your dry, trodden on grass until one day, one day danny... i will come for you you fucking prick deer.

Priddis was never a bum and McCullogh for Coote - yeah what were you were saying about injury prone drop kick fullbacks.

This isn't even in the top 5 worst trades in SHB history.

O'neill for Gallen. Hayne for someone shit - there's plenty worse than this - James made the offer he wants a decent 5/8 because he has enough decent forwards let him make his own call.

James gets a five eighth who is a try scoring threat and gets back £120k which he desperately needs and he loses a prop whose form fell away dramatically at the end of last year and can still name a very strong forward pack - that's the long and short of it.

Does it help my team? yes - but why else does anyone else make a trade in the first place.

And now I need to find a back up half to cover zillman which isn't easy given the lack of players on the open market.
