Cow Talk โ€“ Round 23

Written by Father Dougal on August 23 2017

Small or Far Away, Father Dougal on Cows

Last week of the season. Rigorously structured number analysis takes time and will happen over the off season, so instead here are someย rigorously structured write-ups!


Hugh Greenwood

Best backup ever
Sad you were needed so much
Bright future ahead

James Parsons

You averaged fifty
Boring, dull, reliable
Somehow kept your job

Will Hoskin Elliot

No complaints at all
You scored points and made cash
Didn’t start with you

Dan Houston

A rather blah start
Seventy four average
after you came back

Daniel Butler

The obvious theme
Up and down like a yo yo
I already used

Lincoln McCarthy

A prodigal son
I liked and started with you
Bent me over, ooowwwwww…..

Jarrad Pickett

What a complete waste
No points, no cash, lost your place
Bugger me sensless

Kayne Turner

Lack of forward cows
I panicked and brought you in
What was I thinking?

Brett Eddy

You played just three games
I really screwed up forwards
Better luck next year


Again, 100% sure that no predictions will be wrong this week!

No matches next week, no Cow talk until next year. But, I just realized the week I agreed to write Thommo’s summary is finals week! Yargh!

Good luck everyone! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Witts wheres Witts?

    He was the best cow of all!

    Thanks Father for all your numbers, and more for your witty musings.

    Have a great sabbatical and see you next year.


  2. Father Dougal: accept no imitations. It’s been a pleasure to read your musings again this year FD. I’m very much looking forward to your Grand Final review!


  3. Great work again for the season FD. Sorry about the write-up this week, right when you were ready to relax!

    It’s a pity you can’t do some musing about life in general in the off-season. I’d read it!


    1. Thanks mate. I’m sure I’ll end up enjoying do the review, just didn’t connect it was the last one of the year. No Pressure ๐Ÿ™‚

      “Life in General” is a big topic. Not sure how to run the numbers on it……


  4. FD , as I noted in another thread , the most astute observation / topic all year , Money is gold , Trades are oxygen .
    Why didn’t we all listen ?


    1. Thanks mate. I’m wondering if I didn’t listen to myself! I thought I had, but I’m going to go back and review my trades after the season is done and see.

      Pretty likely to write a follow up of some kind next pre-season. The last third of this season was bloody awful for so many of us…..
