    Apologies for not updating the Leaderboard for a few weeks. The good news is that after Round 21, Dusty still has a winning lead over Rance who is still 3 points ahead of Cotch. Following is Astbury, Lambert, Prestia, Grigg, Nankervis,  Riewoldt, and Nick Vlastuin rounding out the top 10.

    You heard it here first.

    We run a real risk of losing one of the best off-season recruits, Blake.

    Eade was a sacrificial lamb, that was the gist of Caro's article.
    Suns should finish above Carl and NM.
    Three positions above the Lions.

    Disappointing if Carcacella leaves @BigTigerCasey.
    Generally speaking, a new senior coach, say for example, Barker, would tend to bring in his own people as assistants.

    I hear it, but I don't believe it.

    Can't see why he'd leave the Tigers.

    Definite stayer. For sure. No doubt. Fait accompli.

    Maybe we could send Hardwick to the Suns for Gary Ablett and keeping Caracella. #creativetrades

    Solomon says he is shocked by the sacking of Eade. Certainly, a scapegoat.
    It will be interesting to see how many years Bolton and NM Scott have left in coaching.
    The Scott press conferences are extraordinary, not one single negative question from the media.

    Rope a dope was Ali taking lots of punches and tiring his opponent out then belting piss out of him when he was stuffed.
    Shake and bake...popcorn chicken, or Ricky Bobby.

    I am pleased WB lost.
    Provides a buffer for top four.
    We want Syd to lose vs Adel in round 22.
    We want WB to defeat PA in the same round.
    We need to win one of three.

    To your father, Bruce is like a comfy old cardigan put on to ease life's burden. Let him button up before each match.

    Hello @Vines.

    I have been castigated re my consistent calling for Bruce to be removed from the commentary roster so I will try to keep this civil. He gushes too much, calls players by nicknames and fawns over the past players sitting beside him. He turns his statements into questions looking for validation from those around him and fails to provide a counter voice to the group think that exists in the Ch7 commbox.

    Basically he has lost the separation required as a professional commentator and now sounds like an uber fan watching his fave player run around while sitting next to his previous fave player hoping they'll tell him how much they like his work. It's awful and I no longer listen to the TV commentators.

    Oh he's good isn't he ay? S I L K silk. Good call Duck, spot on Lingy. Ay?

    Best not get me started on Ling.

    The best one I heard last night was when two players with the same first initial of their surname combined he said, "The two w's ay?"
    WTF???

    Exactly - what's that got to do with anything? He's also struggling with his eyesight I think. Seems to call goals early that are points more than should be considered acceptable. Gets really excited too.

    You just get the feeling, if north can get the next goal, they're really in with a chance of getting a sniff.

    Oh he's a good kick, we know that. Poppy Ay?

    How about Luke Darcy talking to Matt Crouch and calling his brother, "Ben"?
