Prelim week is upon us! Are you still recovering from your Mad Monday after all the late outs over the weekend? Or did you have the week off to sit back and laugh at all of us peasants whining about Buddy? Last week was an absolute $hit of a week with late outs to Buddy, Michell and Griffin.

Round 15 came and went and could of been really good for you if you had Boyd as Captain, brought in Carrazzo and had Zorko on the field (who doesn’t?). but if you had Goddard and Spurr on your bench, copped Waters late out, put the C on Swan or Gazza, or had to play Campbell, you would of been spewing!
