Q: After a dominant performance at the AUDL Championship weekend, Raleigh seems to have shaken the monkey off its back. The O-line was particularly impressive – everyone played with the confidence of champions, each cutter was a throwing threat.

With the addition of Ryan Osgar, a disappointing regular season for PoNY, and an underwhelming performance from Machine thus far, it feels that this year Ring of Fire has a shot at the finals.

Is this the year Ring makes it out of semis? (I think so)

How does Ring match up against Sockeye? (pretty well, I think)
