    Wouldn't hold my breath, noticed they've had no major sponsorship since the first year with Holden.
    No prizes for winning a round either

    Im guessing something like the Cowboys Premiership ring (as in for the fans not the players rings) which they were trying to sell for 2-300 or whatever it was.

    If the ring is like the NRL Players rings then thats okay. Whatever happened to that bloke who purchased Wolfmans ring on Ebay? lol!

    Just had a look at the ring mentioned, they look quite good. Still would prefer it to look like a super bowl ring but thats not happening.

    If you wear that ring around it would make a brilliant contraceptive.

    The "opening Friday" image was on renegades.

    Did they just grab it from the fanhub test site? Would explain why its not actually true if it was never something actually designed for the public

    have seen most guys are running 2/3 gun props in their sides

    any particular reason for this? Are the reduced interchanges leading people to think they can squeeze some extra minutes of the guns and some potential extra points? Lack of option so getting the big guns to start?

    I have been tweeking my side and with 1 GUN and 2 mid rangers with potential, my side has much better balance

    The Sportal one is sitting on my desk at work. If I could post a fucking picture I would Embarassed . They sent it to me as it was my address, so have to try to get it to arsenalbroncos or DK, whoever we wrok out was the winner. I think but am nt sure ab joined the SUG after it closed officially for KFP's Eliminator.

    My other option is to scratch my name into it and keep it Very Happy .

    In answer to your question, for $69 and engraved and sent across the country, I was happy with it. It's essentially a plaque and it's more the fact that it's official that makes it worth it.

    It could end up that traditional guns don't wind up playing many more minutes at all; and the props that normally play 35-40 wind up grabbing an extra 5 or 10. That would really throw the cat amongst the pigeons.

    i didn't mean the last line to sound so smug when i just re-read it lol "my side has much better balance"*
    *in comparision to my own previous side that was meant to read like...

    Woods with Ah Mau and Paulo in my current side, both the latter avgs were much higher than their season avgs in the last 8-10 rounds would hope they could continue that if they get those extra minutes
