Well it’s a feeling of mixed emotions today. We are finished for the 2013 Dream Team season. No longer will we be able to watch our favourite premos and cheer every time they get a touch, nor can we yell at those players we love to hate. Our weekends will suddenly be filled with emptiness.

I’m really struggling to introduce this week. What do you call it? I’ll be honest with you, my patience is running extremely thin with DT. You would’ve had a better weekend with a Round 1 team full of rookies.

You have just got the bell. Onto the final lap of the 5km season marathon. Your teams legs are hurting, the lactic acid spread that is Jack Grimes consumes your squad. Those in the bottom half of the 8 find a second wind.

The regular DT season has come to an end and finals are finally here. However that doesn’t mean the shitstorm of late withdrawals and pure patheticness has stopped to gives us a sigh of relief. This weekend was dominated by some shock results. However fear not, there is no shock to my Sunday evening rage.

After going AWOL over the past couple of weeks, I’m glad to be back! Well in one sense I am. In another I have had to put up with a metric shit tonne of injuries, trade disasters and rubbish scores. Read on for the Sunday Knee Jerk.

Over the past few months I’ve been reading the comments, mostly people saying how they can’t wait until I copped the full wrath of the DT gods. Well guys, your time has come. Suffice to say that if you had some bad luck, I almost certainly had them as well.

It looked like the apocalypse was occurring on Sunday afternoon, the ever reliable Champion Data crashed! I tend to think it was a blessing in disguise… It saved fools like me with any Brisbane players the pain of flat lines longer than the last Ice Age. However the reality check that hit when the scores reappeared can only be shared by Charlie Sheen.

Hello and welcome to what I will name the PRAWOL (FYI, pronounced Pray-wol) week. What is that you ask? The Post Rookie AWOL week! They were terrible, what on Earth will we do once we trade JOM (Bye structure permitting).

The byes have arrived! We all thought this was going to be cataclysmic. A seismic event off the Richter scale. And for those unlucky ones, it was. Some may have even been placed in restraints as to halt them from flying all the way across the country to find Kennedy and deliver some carefully chosen words and a bag of cement!

Well I thought things were looking up. My team was coming together and those painful rookie scores were slowly filtering out of my side. So you can imagine my emotions as I look at my team carrying 2 scores below 40, WITH NO INJURIES! Brilliant. It’s time to knee-jerk!

Well… For most that weekend was a disaster. This is the place to be tonight. Forget bye planning, trade planning. Leave your worries behind. It’s time to vent.
