    Absolutely. Well said. Lifeline Australia can be contacted at any time at 13 11 14 if anyone ever needs someone to talk to.

    Just read the news and I'm pretty torn up about it. Chester was one of the most talented vocalists I've ever heard and Linkin Park were a big part of my formulative music years.

    No idea until I saw this post Moose. Was never much of a LP fan but their influence on modern day music is undeniable. Seemed like a good guy, absolutely terrible and shocking news. We are seeing this more and more, just so sad.

    RIP mate. He will be singing a tune right now with the great man Chris Cornell.

    It's extra sad that he sang Hallelujah at Cornell's funeral. He must have been in a really bad place to see all that sadness from family and friends and yet still not be able to cope with his own depression.

    He thinks this because Young Onomatopoeia was named or QLD Cup but Scott wasn't.

    When I heard that I decided to put Scott into my 17 (over DWalker)

    SJ to Pearce with 70 BE leaves 2 trades (still have Merrin)

    Drop one of Jbrom Guth Cody (probably Jbrom or Cody)

    or save trade and play the 3 above. Pearce at home to Knights is so tempting

    No Friend means more kick metres although it does mean the service out of dummy half won't be as good. No Flash is probably worse for the Chooks defence than their attack. Watson's good in support play and can ball play so they shouldn't lose too much there. Cordner won't make much difference. They were missing more forwards plus Pearce in their last game and they still won albeit with Friend and Gordon.

    Friend kick metres this season with Pearce average something like 37m so not a huge amount to add

    There's really no point holding both SJ and Merrin.

    I don't want to veer off course from the Fantasy thread however mental health is just as important as physical health. People go to the gym to work on their physical health or do exercise at home/outdoors, mental health is just as important. I will update my original post with contact numbers for anyone who feels like they may be struggling or just need someone to talk to. Even if it helps just one single person it is worth it.

    If anyone on this forum needs or wants to have a chat or just needs to get something off their chest then send me a PM Very Happy

    I won't be holding for long but those 3 are not the worst in a 17 and if Pearce drops 15k with a score of 50 that could go a long way in the scheme of things.

    If you are planning on a trade that would need extra cash, hold off and take a punt on him dropping. There's nothing really wrong with playing all of the other three though. But if you don't have direct plans for the cash, you might as well trade. Yeah that extra money might come in handy, but it might not be needed also.

    Is Moga on a late season charge? 52 sitting in my NPRs after the very first game isn't ideal. He only scored 26 vs the Bulldogs in rd 5.

    Even if you are not sure what's going on in your head or you're confused... talk to someone.

    Yeah, Hybrid Theory was the first album I can remember going to the shops and having to sneak around to buy myself because mum wouldn't get it for me on her usual shop trip after hearing One Step Closer on rage (I believe her exact review was "noisy rubbish").

    Hybrid and the Collision Course collab with JayZ was pretty influential to my music as I was growing up - I know young ryno would have been pretty torn up this morning.
