2012 Player Countdown
#1
A Yellow and Black tradition is the yearly countdown to the Round 1 game against Carlton at the MCG. The countdown is usually run by RMel, but he is running low on time at the moment so is unable to do it. It doesn't mean we can't run one collectively as a community though. The legacy he started needs to live on!

So, with all that in mind and the launching of the advocates today it coincides well for the launch of the countdown next Tuesday Feb 7th!

The countdown will be a communal affair and I ask the members to post their thoughts on players on the corresponding countdown days. Together we can make this work! Advocates get your fingers poised on your keyboards, this is the perfect opportunity for you to pump up your player so he has a big year!

The countdown will begin on Feb 7th with Piva Wright days to go to Round One!

Hey Lisa, who is going to write the initial spiel? Can I suggest that the advocates get ready to post the opening comments for their sponsored player at the start of that day?

And everyone else get ready to cover when they forget.
If you're committed enough, you can make any story work.

I once told a woman I was Kevin Costner, and it worked because I believed it.

yeah, if they forget maybe you could work your magic TBR and write a few kind words? Smile

Yes! My favourite thread of the year. I shall get my papers on Houli together to kick off the last fortnight.

I'd be happy to take on the job as a backup if other members support it.

I have complete faith. You have my vote.

RMel should probably approve as well given it is his thread.

The general thought was that anyone can post the first one each day. The first one doesn't necassairly have to the best and most in depth either. It could simply be as an example -

There are only Dustin Martin (4) days to go until gameday! 4 sleeps! Go dusty Go. Arm bar to the chest! Take that Juddy!




And then other people can have their say.
