In the preseason comp (the "CWPL Care Cup") you'll play the other two teams in your group once, then progress to the knockouts if you top your group.

We'll have another couple of trials after that's over, one round of which I may or may not half troll with nonsense (so don't rely on more than one real game after the preseason comp to finalise your eleven ;) )

I've decided I won't be mean enough to injure players in trials, so you might as well go ahead and use them to try and figure out who you're going to start with rather than resting guys to keep them fit.

I'll create a separate lineups threads with a template once I've settled on what format I want you to name lineups in over the next couple of days, but you can start thinking and discuss it now. Also ****-talk with the rest of your group about how they all suck. Hype.

You know they say that all teams are created equal, but you look at me and you look at morgieb and you can see that statement is not true. See, normally if you go one on one with another team, you got a 50/50 chance of winning. But I'm a genetic freak and I'm not normal! So you got a 25%, AT BEST, at beat me. Then you add Flem274* to the mix, your chances of winning drastic go down. See the 3 way to the Care Cup finals, you got a 33 1/3 chance of winning, but I, I got a 66 and 2/3 chance of winning, because Flem274* KNOWS he can't beat me and he's not even gonna try!

So morgieb, you take your 33 1/3 chance, minus my 25% chance and you got an 8 1/3 chance of making the Care Cup final. But then you take my 75% chance of winning, if we was to go one on one, and then add 66 2/3 per cents, I got 141 2/3 chance of making the Care Cup finals. See morgieb, the numbers don't lie, and they spell disaster for you at the Care Cup.

I've got no dramas with people posting lineups in here so we can bag out their crap teams as long as they all know they'll have to post them again in the format I demand later. :p

Lol @ Dan picking Kallis despite not even drafting him, and that batting order.
