    Footy’s here!!!!

    I love the desperado’s begging for last minute help.

    Monty, congrats on your efforts so far – awesome.

    To the rest of you punters, while every DT site in the country is crashing (except FF), enjoy the next few minutes before mayhem.

    Peace homes.

    this is my first year doing SC, and i’ve seen posts saying that the heraldsun website gets pretty busy, but this is crazy can anyone make changes to their team at all? I think I’m going to be stuck with quite a few players who wont play this week.

    Hey Monty.

    I think you got the last laugh on the “Cousins for round 1” saga after all!

    Monty – from New York City – many thanks for your blogs/insight/humor over the last few months leading up to that crazy 160 minutes last night, followed by Cousins torn hammy….poor bastard.

    As a newbie to this site, but not SC – I’m assuming that your around all season right to help us poor lost souls?

    Certainly some surprises at the selection table last night – had many coaches punching their computer screens – and that was before they tried to log onto SC – which basically fizzled out like a lame duck.

    No live SC scores this year it seems huh?
    I guess the AFL does wield the power by only promoting live DT scores…..or is this a Champion Data decision?

    Again thanks – could NEVER have put together an semi-decent without you.

    Best, SimonOz
