The Off Season

Written by Motts on August 26 2010

How do you spend your weekends in the off season? Personally, the Spring Racing Carnival will take up a bit of my time in the short term. Beyond that I’ll keep a lazy eye on the cricket, get into the gym a little more, and maybe travel a bit now I don’t have a reason to be in Melbourne on the weekends.

What are your plans?

  1. Not sure how i’m going to get through next week. I think many of us will have withdrawal symptoms.

    Cricket eats up much of my summer (much to my partner’s chagrin). Much SuperCoach will be talked about during the summer months at the club.

  2. crotcheying black and white apparel while planning next years SC assault. i had a plan for this year to win the car which failed dismally, only got to the top 500 by round 11 and ran out of trades, so this will need revision, may actually aim a bit lower and see how I can go in the leagues next year.

  3. Speaking of the spring carnival, it consumes most of my time early on in the post football season perhaps you could rename the site Spring Carnival talk and those who are interested can discuss all things horse racing etc… just a very random and selfish thought!
    Apart from the nags (the wife’s and the horses) the golf clubs generally get a good solid workout!

    1. Using this site to discuss those of us that take horse racing too seriously is a great idea. Best Buys becomes Best Bets. Now that SC is over, I’ll certainly be focusing on the Spring Race carnival.

    2. Great idea Stevo – the HS ran a fantasy ‘Super Racing” game last year, I haven’t seen whether or not they intend to do so again this year.
      Maybe Motts can have a chat with his mates at HS?

      1. I too plan to lose all my money on the punt over spring. Why not get others advice and help me lose some more

  4. Cricket season is the equal of football season for me! Also, the UCI cycling championships are coming to Geelong at the end of September.

    Oh, and my first child will be born in a few months! I’m fairly certain I won’t have any trouble filling my time……

  5. I’ll be celebrating a Pies flag and getting ready to go back to back. 😉

    In addition, there is test match cricket to watch and a variety of beaches to sample.

  6. Immediately following this week I’ll be looking forward to watching the finals without worrying about whether my SC players are getting their hands on the pill or not, or worrying about my tips for the week – always a strange feeling after 22 rounds.

    Then it’s that strange time of the year when there’s no footy and no cricket and people start talking about horses . . . sorry guys but I just don’t get it (apart from the drinking part). That’s when I might decide to voluntarily spend some time outdoors after avoiding it for the last half year.

      1. Some big ones off Philip Island.

        Usually do a trade with the old man. I give him SC tips and he gives me tips for the Horses. I’ll post em’ here if your interested.

  7. Motts doesn’t mind using the site for Spring Carnival talk at all. We will of course need a disclaimer about the dangers of following whatever tips are posted. I was involved in the HS Spring Racing comp last year. Was TERRIBLE at it. But the experience did serve to strengthen my resolve to get better at it 🙂

    Just remembered that there is a SC Finals comp that gets run every year. Must admit, I’ve never gotten a lot out of it though.

      1. I thought it was only Dream Team that did a finals comp?

        The way that worked last year (with scores doubling each round) was kind of stupid and meant it was basically down to who had a good grand final game. Still, it’s better than no fantasy football…..

  8. I will be making a documentary. To make some money

    It will be called
    “Such is life”
    The troubled times of Juddylicious.

    In the documentary, like Bens, I will make excuses for all the things I have done wrong in my life. And then hope other people learn from it.
