    The Irish

    Strange place..... Ireland.... "AN IRISH woman who married the ghost of a 300-year-old pirate claims the couple have split up. Amanda Teague, 46, from Drogheda, Co. Louth, married the Haitian pirate named Jack earlier this year. The wedding to her ‘soulmate’ took place on board a boat in international waters off the Irish coast. However the Irish Mirror reports the couple have called it a day after less than a year." https://www.irishpost.com/news/irish-woman-married-ghost-300-year-old-pirate-says-split-162579

    Injury List - Season 2019

    If they have had off season surgery, then it's an interrupted pre-season. Fact.

    I've said it before and I'll repeat it here.......... I love seeing Fritta in the lead group with ANB and TMac. Taking an outstanding debut season to a new level ............ ?

    Frosty can be a weapon. The classic 80-100m players who can run away from any opposition and drive the ball long into the forward line. It doesn't have to be "lace out" just so long as the opposition are put under pressure and forced to defend in our forward line. Can't kick goals from anywhere else. If used tactically and strategically at the right times will make a huge difference to the game plan.

    100% ......... and I love this bit too: "Now running shoes off and footy boots on. The whole group have gone into a tight huddle in the middle. Someone has started up a chant and the whole group repeats the chant as one. Different phrases over and over. Finished by chanting I have no fear and jumping up and down on the spot. Incredible sense of commeraderie." Pre- Christmas when training is usually a hard grind with all the repeat running and fitness stuff, but it sounds like the boys are loving every minute of it. Not satisfied with top four, and champing at the bit to take the next step! Brilliant! I'm enjoying your "unexpected" visit to Melbourne as much as you seem to be It's Time. Many thanks for sharing!

    Training just finished. Dashing to the airport now. Can answer questions later. Will try to post some picks but will be of players running and kicking. Nothing special there.

    With the new kick in rules, I suspect Frosty will be kicking / running it in a lot for us from the goal square

    Heard Brendan McCartney.tell someone they are training really well. Gone up another level. Still some fine tuning to go but gone up a level.

    Bloody Hell. It’s near the end of a 2hr session. Frosty has gone down to a goal square in his own with a bag of balls. Wondered what he’s doing. He’s kicking torps that are almost hitting the bloody cross in the centre circle. One went off the side of his boot. We’ll call that the 2018 Prelim Finals kick. I’ll call the centre circle ones the 2019 GF kick.

    Injury List - Season 2019

    Sorry expert but I asked, interrupted pre season is where they are off legs and it impacts their fitness base The craft sessions etc are there to refine their skills, if we have 2nd and above year players who can't handball, kick or don't understand the game plan, then you need to ask why they are still on the list Most in the rehab wiil rejoin after Xmas with theif fitness base intact, which is the main aim of the preseason, to get miles into legs. Hence why James Harmes was worked over in the running last Friday to the point of dry retching and telling me that was the hardest running session he had done at the club, so not interrupted? Of course you wouldnt have seen that as you are safely sniping from a distance

    Supercoach: Most Expensive Players

    He's become their link man/designated kicker from defence...a lot of the footy goes through him so I'm guessing his stats are good for super coach... In real footy he's the one you tag now.

    NFL

    Steelers are now in real danger of missing the playoffs completely - final 3 games ... vs Pats, @ Saints, vs Cinci. Baltimore are looming large and even the Browns are a chance in the AFC North And the Pats almost certainly won't get to the 1 seed and may need to have to make-do with the 3 seed especially if they lose to Pittsburgh next week. They are at home to the Bills & Jets in their last 2 games so they still should win the AFC East. New England may be faced with having to win on the road twice during the playoffs if they drop 1 of their 3 remaining games and if Houston win out for the remainder of their regular season games - the Texans are @ Jets, @ Eagles and then vs Jacksonville. The Pats do have the tie-break advantage over Houston having beaten the Texans earlier in the season.

    Not long ago I had a six pack. They are all gone now. I may have to open another!

    For his price he won't have to score too high but it's gonna mostly depend on how much game time he'll get. Not much risk and he'll be in my team.

    Supercoach: Most Expensive Players

    True but the fact that we most likely (at least initially to see if it works) will play both ruckman may eat into Maxy's scores. Preuss will be well priced but he won't get as much time as Max so unless he hits the scoreboard his scores won't be high.

    With Max being the first and most picked last year, that new bloke we got I think will be a bargain and must have this year.
