2010 Player Countdown
#1
Yes folks, it's back!

Almost time for the infamous RFC player countdown to the start of the season!

Starting next week we will have a daily player count down marking all the players on our list.

This year, however, I want to do things a little differently. It takes quite a bit of effort to come up with stats and stuff to say about each player. So rather than concentrating on that stuff (or leaving it to others Smile ) I thought this year I'd encourage the countdown for folks to post in this thread their hopes and aspirations for each player for season 2010. Perhaps reflect on how far they have come, and who can or should take the "next step" or perhaps see a new role bring out a different facet to their game.

Basically I'm going to throw it wide open to everyone!

Here, then, is the schedule for the player countdown:

Feb 2: #51 Nick Westhoff
Feb 3: #50 Relton Roberts
Feb 4: #49 Pat Contin
Feb 5: #48 Dylan Grimes
Feb 6: #47 Ben Nason
Feb 7: #46 Jeromey Webberley
Feb 8: #45 Robert Hicks
Feb 9: #44 Troy Taylor
Feb 10: #43 Matt Dea
Feb 11: #42 Jamie O'Reilly
Feb 12: #41 Nathan Foley
Feb 13: #40 Kelvin Moore
Feb 14: #39 David Astbury
Feb 15: #38 Ben Griffiths
Feb 16: #37 Jayden Post
Feb 17: #36 Dustin Martin
Feb 18: #35 Matthew White
Feb 19: #34 Andrew Browne
Feb 20: #33 David Gourdis
Feb 21: #32 Ben Cousins
Feb 22: #31 Adam Thomson
Feb 23: #30 Richard Tambling
Feb 24: #29 Tyrone Vickery
Feb 25: #28 Jake King
Feb 26: #27 Tom Hislop
Feb 27: #26 Robin Nahas
Feb 28: #25 Angus Graham
Mar 1: #24 Andrew Collins
Mar 2: #23 Daniel Jackson
Mar 3: #22 Alroy Gilligan
Mar 4: #21 Shane Tuck
Mar 5: #20 Mitch Morton
Mar 6: #19 Daniel Connors
Mar 7: #18 Alex Rance
Mar 8: #17 Chris Newman
Mar 9: #16 Luke McGuane
Mar 10: #15 Mitch Farmer
Mar 11: #14 Dean Polo
Mar 12: #13 Jordan McMahon
Mar 13:
Mar 14:
Mar 15: #10 Shane Edwards
Mar 16: #9 Trent Cotchin
Mar 17: #8 Jack Riewoldt
Mar 18:
Mar 19: #6 Graham Polak
Mar 20: #5 Troy Simmonds
Mar 21:
Mar 22: #3 Brett Deledio
Mar 23: #2 Will Thursfield
Mar 24: Damien Hardwick


I've decided to make this finish on March 24th with the coach on the day before our round 1 match to finish things more neatly and give a full day before people explode with tension for the first bounce Smile

I also decided to keep the breaks in there for jumper numbers unallocated this season because that will give a bit of "catch up" time, or breathers.. plus the #12/#11 "holes" fit nicely over a weekend! Smile

Hopefully this will be a fun thread again and I encourage everyone to post their thoughts on each player to represent our club in 2010!

Great work RMel.

Questions:

1. If the day ends, can you still talk about the player?
2. Is it all in the one thread or separate threads?


And great work with the dates Wink Jake King on my birthday. hehe

Thanks damo11! Smile My head is starting to swell (not a good look!)

To answer your questions:

1. Of course discussion can and does continue about players even after their "day" - in previous years some topics continued for days afterwards Smile

2. Yes, it's all in the one thread. That may get confusing for some, but it's always been run in the one thread. I can't imagine starting over 40 threads over the next 7 or so weeks. I know I post a lot, but that's a new one even for me! Big Grin
