With 4 wins from 7 games, Pythagoras 3FC has taken out the inaugural St Kilda 3 Sided Football trophy. Someone needs to come up with a more concise name for it. Perhaps the STK3SFT. Anyway, they are the champions despite, during the last few games of the season, missing star forward Trevor to immigration control.
The All Sartres came in a distant second with 2 wins, and the Geometers floundered on the bottom with just 1. Although, really, and completely objectively, there wasn’t much in it.
By the way, it’s important to note a few things. Firstly, the previous post alluded to the game played on 27 July being the penultimate of the winter season. Turns out it wasn’t. Nobody knows who to blame, but somehow a total of 7 games were played, and nobody really noticed.
Furthermore, Pythagoras officially won the premiership way back on 7 September, but I’d forgotten my wordpress log-in details and have only just remembered the very long and convoluted password which, at the time, I thought was ingenious but, as it happens, was way too clever for me to remember. So, you know, I had to go through all the rigmarole of ordering another password through the mail. After weeks of checking the letterbox, it turns out they meant email. The information superhighway continues to surprise and delight.
Stay tuned for an update, because there are 2 important things that have happened:
1. Referee Andrew F (who has, confusingly, decided to start playing and referring at the same time) has introduced a raft of new rules, inspired by the changes happening at international league headquarters in London. I won’t give the game away just yet (although those of you who played last weekend will have an inkling), but one of the major rule changes involves hands.
Huh, I might even create a new page on this blog outlining the rules. That’s a great idea, Dick. Thanks.
2. The first 2 games of the Spring season have been played, as well as a much derided 2 sided practice match. The reason these haven’t been reported yet? See the password debacle above.
Thanks for reading.
