  1. Think the executive summary is a nice touch Motts. Tbh, it’s all any of really want to know from the MRP.

    How many do people think May will get? I reckon 4 or 5, probably 4.

    Does he still get an automatic week for bad behaviour chucked on?

  2. I think the base penalty will be 4 weeks + 1 week for bad record + 1 week for ruining Martin’s SC score and losing a league game for me + 1 week for knocking Rocky out last year (still haven’t got over it) + 1 week to make it an even number = 8 weeks
