  • Team Name: Useless FC
    Round 17 Score: 2346
    Eliminator Status: No
    DT Studs: Everyone but particularly Petrie, Broughton and Lower.
    DT Duds: None
    On the Chopping Block: None. Team is finished. Premiums in all positions. Trades for injuries/Heath Shaw brainfarts only from here out.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Moved up into 700ish overall which isn’t bad considering after the first few weeks i was out to 16,000 odd. I left my run too late to have a crack at the car but I’ve got my sights set on a top 100 finish. Long shot but you never know, I’ve clawed my way back this far after all and I think I’m doing better with trades than most.

    Round 17 Score: 2301
    Eliminator Status: ACTIVE
    DT Studs: Lower, Petrie
    DT Duds: Rawlings
    On the Chopping Block: No one
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Cracked the top 100 – up to 93rd overall. Happy to get through my eliminator. Decision for this week is which forward to bench out of Rioli and n.volt. Also considering upgrading an extra backman, but the defenders seem so random i might just be better sitting with what I have.

  • Team Name: Evil Weevils
    Round 17 Score: 2026
    Eliminator Status: Long gone
    DT Studs: Lids (finally), Pedersen (damn good rook), Bart, Sylvia, Coxy, Pee-tree, Prestia
    DT Duds: B Smith(Adel, sub), JHowe(sub), GC Lynch (sucks)
    On the Chopping Block: BSmith, Lynch, I Smith (BE of 95…)
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Only just managed to scrape in the 2k mark, 2011 is over, so might as well use up the rest of my trades, see what happens – KAMIKAZE TIME!!!

  • Team Name: Norfolk ‘n Chance

    DT Duds: (-100) Pavlich, Goodes, B Harvey, Scotland, Enright, Z Smith, Adcock, Mzungu, Gamble
    On the Chopping Block: None this week
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Only 9 players who were sub-100 this week, who all are very capable of scoring over 100. A few more in the studs group and 2400 would have been quite easily achieved. Can’t complain though I guess!

  • Team Name: Devious FC
    Round 17 Score: 2310
    Eliminator Status: out long ago
    DT Studs: Lower, Petrie, Montagna, many premiums scored between 90-120 which was great
    DT Duds: Chapman and Stevie J
    On the Chopping Block: No one

    1 – Won all the league matches, including DT Talk Bombers. Now ranked 1,711 overall. Hope by year’s end to break top 1000, which I’ve never done.

    2 – Great trade to bring in Fyfe for Dawes, not so great to bring in Stevie J for Harvey (whom I thought would be a late withdrawal). But anyway, I have no Port players, so looking forward to another potentially high-scoring round (barring injuries or gambling-related withdrawals)…

    On the Chopping Block: time to milk howe for some cash

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: with the money from howe and what is in my bank trading bewick to abblet next week giving me an extra premium in every position

  • Yes unemployed im serious. I wouldn’t have posted it if I wasn’t.

    Is it a good trade??

    • Its simple, if thats the only problem you have and have a few trades left then do it, if its not your biggest problem then do something else, you will lose your dpp

    • Were you playing Higgins in your Mids?

      I wouldnt be trading out Higgins at this stage of the season. Maybe there is another upgrade that will be more valuable to you in the long run?

      I would keep the faith with Higgins at this late stage of the season, hard to tell with out knowing how many traes you have left and the make up of your team.


      The Unemployed

  • Cheers for that,

    I wont do it as I was thinking the same thing that I will lose my DPP.

    I have 3 trades left so I might hold off this week or I will downgrade Hibberd to Callinan if Playing then upgrade A. Krakourer to either Thomas or Ablett????

    I would have one trade left but would have Didak, I.Smith, Darling, Nicholson and Jacobs for cover for any LTI..

    Do u think that would be a risk 1 trade going into Finals…..

    • Its hard to say without seeing your complete team one trade is pushing it. I would hold off

  • Team Name: RedNBlack Attack
    Round 17 Score: 2158
    Eliminator Status: What???
    DT Studs: x11 with 100+
    DT Duds: Darling (long story read below), McEvoy, Chappy with 71.
    On the Chopping Block: 3 trades left and sitting tight (long story read below)
    FMDT…broke my own “don’t trade til Fri night” rule and traded Lower to Shaw on Thu night and we know the rest of that story…aaarrrggghhhh!
    Does it get any worse, well yes it does, I was tossing up between Broughts (low BE, tough run home, been consistent) and Shaw (low price and F@CK knows why else) and went for the cheaper “F@CK knows why else” option, as Sam would say,’ You IDIOT’!
    I was also considering a FWD upgrade with Darling to ROK, but went for the DEF upgrade instead arrrgghhhh!!!
    Does it get any worse, yes it does this stoopid move cost me 2 trades (5 now 3) and my best score for the year (currently 2170).

    On the bright side I have lost one game all year from 2 leagues so my 2nd season has been good, next year I might concentrate on not gambling on gamblers.
