All Things Considered

It has been a raucous year for the Auld League. From reprehensible imports to ‘suspended’ franchises, 2006 has understatedly been an undistinguished season. My Tabbies posted one of the worst campaigns in memory, an excruciatingly drawn-out exercise only tempered by the Boatmen’s self-ruination in the Eastern Final.

Legends retired, expired and perspired. A Commissioner was overthrown and rule oversights have muted what little particular enjoyment was left of the game.

A seven months I'd - all things considered - prefer to forget. Let’s hope this year’s Grey is worthy - I know I'll be getting shit-faced... just in case.
