It was my pleasure!

Below is a larger image of the Avatar, so the fine detail of the engraving can be appreciated.

Nice, as usual.

Bermi was also responsible for my avatar change a couple of months ago. He created a few different versions, I'll likely rotate through them throughout the year.

While I'm here I'll finally introduce myself. My names Jim and support Carlton. I'm on the wrong side of 50, 53 actually, married and have 2 daughters in their early 20's. Currently work in the finance industry as a Credit Assessor for one of the major banks. I've been in the industry for over 30 years and have worked in various roles during that time.
I love watching most sports and am a SuperCoach Fanatic, that was my original name I used before switching to Professor. My avatar is the Nutty Professor and I consider myself nutty by way of nutty moves and thoughts on my SuperCoach team. I have an old laptop that has passed it's expiry date so nowadays I do everything off my mobile. So Bye planning and strategy doesn't go well, I'm also not that good at it.

I'm here for the fun and interaction with this amazing community, who generously share their thoughts, time and run competitions for us all. I'm a simple person and don't strategise to win, I'm not great at formulas and spreadsheets working out breakevens etc. I am competitive, but take too many risks. It'll sink in one day. I love reading everyone's thoughts and apologise if I don't respond to others posts, as I'm generally time poor, whilst trying to get you the latest news/tweet.

My aim is to provide the community with the latest news first, as we know how late changes effect our teams and structures. I've taken a back seat this pre-season as many others have stepped up with information sharing. Other sports I have an interest in are listed as follows, NFL, BBL, IPL, AFL, new member of the Darts comp, enjoy horse racing and greyhounds, tennis, cricket. Love sitting on the couch all day watching four games of afl on a Saturday and Sunday, although my family isn't happy with me hogging the TV. I always say I'm working and there's prize money on the line lol. I get away with a fair bit.

This thread is an amazing read.

45 yr old from North Queensland. Work (if you can call it that) in a tool store in the Bowen Basin. Gives me plenty of time to watch sport/ play around with my teams. Wife/kids are very understanding at home as well, they ride the waves with me pretending to care. Love nearly every sport, if there is a comp going with a prize then I'm in. Fill in the rest of my time on the golf course.

Been playing Fantasy/Supercoach/Dreamteam for too many years to remember with varying success, amazing that I've only just stumbled across this group. Definitely wish I'd found it years earlier. The info on here is amazing, it hasn't taken me long to realise how far I've been starting behind the pack each season with the wealth of knowledge shared on here.

Have played as Barking Gheckos since I started, taking the name from my U/16 indoor cricket team. Avatar is the jersey I picked up fluking the round 1 win in NBL fantasy this season.

Great to be here and hopefully can add a little something when the time presents itself.

Ok been here for 9 years time to introduce myself. My name is Matt, 44 from Sth Australia. Have 2 kids 21 yr old boy and 14 yr old girl. Work as Manager for Gov Housing. Crows supporter, love fishing, Gym, gaming. When I was a kid my brother used to call me stupid names, one of which was munza, dont ask lol. Somehow it stuck over the years and I added the mad. Love watching AFL and live/breathe SC. Don't actually think I have watched a whole game of football for a long time as too busy looking at SC stats lol. Anyway great site and great people with a wealth of knowledge. May the SC gods be with you.

I should also add a big thanks to @Bermi ... love my avatar that he has given me ...

- Anyone who wants a unique avatar now should know who to get it touch with ...
- Be warned though .. only the best will do !!
- Very pedantic in his works :)
Thanks for that @Tails.

I really do enjoy doing computer graphics, and I love a challenge.
(It helps that I have a sophisticated graphics program, 'Photoshop' on my PC :)).

You are all welcome to message me with any graphic challenges you would like for your avatar, from a simple alteration to a new design.

Just by chance, I have come across what might be @wogitalia current office, I'm not sure. The discarded, worn out keypad in the rubbish bin might be a clue?

You'd be genuinely amazed how close that is...

The only difference is it's an old iMac sitting where that laptop is and the laptop is sitting on a chair to the left out of sight and of course the TV conveniently placed with a clean viewing angle between the iMac and the left screen.

Even have a second keyboard for when I'm writing in Russian because I can't touch type well in that language and need to look at the keyboard occasionally :LOL:

Not sure about the pee bottle either! Tea mug is true to form.

Only thing missing is the constantly open excel on one of the screens and I don't miss with the darts ;)
