Indigenous Round (Rd 9) Discussion

Round 9 is upon us and we’re in the middle of ‘Trade Season’ where we are busy downgrading players to upgrade others. So the question is how many trades do you have left now? Sounds like 14-15 is a common answer around the place. With 15 trading periods still left to go (yes, that many)… some of us might need to start being a little more conservative!

As the round progresses, make sure you let the world know how your team is traveling, who’s gunning it, who’s sucking and the all important late withdrawal and substitute news as it comes to hand.

Again, follow us on Twitter for all the latest (we’re Tweeting a lot these days)… @DTTALK, @WarnieDT, @CalvinDT and @RoyDT.

  • Bloody hell…what a final quarter by the mighty Pies.

    Shame Swan wasn’t so mighty :-(

    Krak stays in the team, Duncan is probably the one to go for Chappie

  • 18 goals in the second half v 2 in the first.. what did they do at half time ??

    • I’m guessing the words embarrasing and spuds were used :-)

    • maybe they were juiced up ???
      and I bet there are heaps of teams loving the fact that they picked swan as capt

  • dont know but it worked very well :o ontrack for a decent 2000 considering Frankling, Goodes and Poupolo are all playing pretty well

  • Picking a decent Captain this week would have been impossible. My highest scorers were Petrie then GODDARD! Had a bunch of players crack the ton, yet Swan doesn’t.

  • weekly winner will have montagna as captain

  • Feeling very inadequate not having Franklin in my team.

  • probs on track for 2050. What is par?

    • im on track for about 2250 to 2300 par would be 2200 to 2250 i reakon..

      • yeh im heading for a low 2300. I reckon the winner will get a high 2500

    • Id say over 2200 will be par this week (for the competetive teams anyway). I’m looking at over 2300 so far and seem to be going about the same as most ??

      • Competitive teams is right. I reckon there’s 1 other person in my league who will crack 2000, and I’m hoping for 2300. My friends are bad :D

    • I’m on track for at least 2200, hopefully 2250…and I reckon I’ll drop out of the top 1000 ranks even with that.

    • Tapscott, Swan (c), Bartel and Dr. Hibberd over Lower have killed me. I am a pretty competitive team was ranked 99 a couple of weeks ago but 1,911 last week has dropped me down to a ranking of 1,284

  • If Boyd, Higgins, Darling and Cox all get their averages I’ll make 2300 despite Rocky being subbed, Didak being the sub (So that’s effectively loosing a whole player), Swan as C and Bartel’s below par score. Amazing

  • was popeye subbed of?

  • Franklin is playing very well this game glad i got him now!

  • i’m heading for a 2200 including a 16 from Tapscott, 35 from McKernan, and below par scores by Swan, Pendlebury and Bartel.

    Backline was the problem for everyone before this week, now just about everyone is getting 100’s

  • is darling injured he has done nothing and is a foward and wce have kicked 5 goals already

  • what was i thinking tipping the bulldogs

  • Why on earth did I hold Higgins for 3 bloody weeks! Has done jack shit! Speaking of Jack, Darling has done jack all do. Boyd not going great either! Fucking hell

  • 2251 3 still playing Boyd, libba and darling hoping for 2400. How does this rate against others?

  • 2285 with Boyd, Cox and Darling still playing.. Hoping for 2420+

  • Seriously WTF Higgins…….better have an awesome last quarter like you did last time you played!

    Cox, Boyd going okay. So is Darling considering no goals scored by him

    • Oh come on Higgins subbed off! Little piece of shit. Rockliff subbed off, Didak sub, Higgins subbed off. Fucking hell. Stupid rule

  • Higgins subbed. Weak

  • Higgins being subbed just cost me a league game (Higins vs Libba +10 so was gonna lose anyway)

  • OMFG!!!! top spot in my league on the line, only 2 undefeated teams in my league….
    me- Higgins and Kerr
    V
    Libba + 55 point lead

    1 substitute later its all over!!!!!!!

    + i have Tapscott and my opponent doesn’t

  • Sorry boys but Higgins being subbed means I’m going to win most of my league games and the eliminater!

    I had him in my original team at the start of the year and turfed him out for Knights!

  • 2300 will be pretty common i rekon 9 people in destroy dttalk got 2100 +

    • i think 2300 would have but alot more common but for pathetic scores from the likes of didak(30), tapscott (16), higgins(29). at least one of these guys are owned by a fuck load of teams.

  • F**k you Higgins, you soft sack of SHIT. Will be lucky for 2100!! FMDT

    • im hoping he trips over during the week. he’ll probably break his arm or die.

  • FAARRRRKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!! The Stress!

    21 Point Win in the Eliminator I think! Phew! So tight. I had Boyd & 119 Points vs Cox & Darling. Soooooo Close!!!!

    Finished with 2284. Happy with that! Would have been nice to see 2300 though. Oh well!

  • Had Higgins last year and that was enough for me Why do you think they call him Missy Higgins, he’s a girl!

  • Oooooh, gutted!! One point off 2400 :P

  • 2329 which is 2300 plus Shaun friggen Higgens

    Ima call him Friggens from now on

    He has scored me a total of 119 points since I traded him in over a month ago

    Fair chance he turns into Leigh Montagna this week

    How can I be disappointed with 2329? But I am!

  • 2427 – never again, Duigan, Laidler, Lower, Jacobs, Heppell, N. Riewoldt had field days that probably won’t be repeated this year, so I’ll just bask in the glory while I can.

  • bloody unlucky too lose this guy pulled a 2309 from no where because he had shuey and lecras :/ robert murphy i hate you
