  • I’m starting to regret my decision to get zorko! Any ideas as to when he will make the side? Please don’t tell me mid year :/

    • new years

    • I’m feeling the same

    • Why did you pick him? He’s not expected to return from injury for at least 2-3 weeks, as well as a couple of games in the reserves for match fitness so I’d have a guess and say that he’ll debut around round 7 or 8

    • Even though ever piece of advice was to not bring in Zorko. Only yourself to blame if you either have him, or even worse traded him in for 30 points.

      No sympathy.

    • He was listed as a test on the injury list this week, so whether he plays reserves this week remains to be seen. As has been stated, you’d think they’d give him a couple of weeks in the reserves to get some fitness up before playing, I’d expect around round 5 or so. Unless of course he is like Shiel, who came back in after playing half of a reserves game.

    • I reckon he will play in a couple of weeks the Lions will give him a run in the reserves so he gets some game time into him before make is debut in the senior team.

  • DT Relevant Info:

    ADCOCK and CARRAZZO both named in the guts
    REDDEN and ROBINSON both named in the forward pocket
    KREUZER and LEURENEBERGER both named full forward

    Not good news for some teams but Adcock and Carrazzo owners will be happy

    • Where they’re named means sh*t all.

    • Also dt relevant
      Chuck Norris doesn’t dial the wrong number.. You answer the wring phone

      Plus the real chuck Norris wouldn’t believe this te sheet all they are are 22 names

    • There have been team sheets with the starting sub named on field. Don’t take anything from this, other than they are named.

    • Rockliff isn’t fantasy relevant?

      • Yeah, he is but I was putting down DT relevant players named in positions that interested me.

        For the record, Golby, Hanley, Scotland, Murphy and Gibbs are also relevant

  • Last year Adcock averaged significantly less when Brown played, compared to when he didn’t. The stats where:

    12 games (Round 2-8, 18-24) with Brown: 96.92
    8 games (Round 1, Without Brown: 65.75

    Dunno if you can really read into that, but there certainly was two side to Adcock last year. Now that’s probably me hoping that it applies again this year and that I’m not missing out (I have Broughton instead), but I have a feeling that I may have made my first big mistake of 2012. Only time will tell though.

    • Edit:

      12 games (Round 2-8, 18-24) with Brown: 96.92
      8 games (Round 1, 9-12, 15-17) without Brown: 65.75

      • wiat, but he averages more when brown plays according to you!

      • That’s a real stutter you have going there, judging by your next few posts.

        Rnd 9-12 is when Adcock played with broken finger I believe.

    • really dude thanx for the info but dont be an idiot we can read it once.

    • Seriously dude you’ve said it a million times and your still making no sense!
      EPIC FAIL….

    • disregarding all that information as it makes NO sence

      • Lol, I only posted in once, but my computer must have had a freak out.

        I was simply saying that Adcock scored a lot less when Brown played as the averages show:

        12 games (Round 2-8, 18-24) without Brown: 96.92
        8 games (Round 1, 9-12, 15-17) with Brown: 65.75

        Sorry for the 3 posts guys, don’t know why it happened.

        Cheers.

  • blues to give lions a good ol fashioned reality burst like they did to the tiges last week. Blues by 6 goals+

  • Close sources (friend is Phil Davis’ cousin) tells me Adam Treloar is very close to playing but not this week. Expect him in the next couple of weeks. Could be my first downgrade :)

  • Anyone know why Magner has the bandaid? Can’t find him listed as an injury anywhere

    • hurt his ankle in a tackle last game he should be right to play. hes on my field :D

  • Banged his ankle up last week, Limped off and didn’t return. Will play subject to fitness test

  • Any info on how Adcock plays with and without Brown? Would love to know…

  • Interestingly these stats say adcock scored better WITH brown, while the multiple posters state the opposite.. Or are my beers talking?
    Ill have spam spam spam spam eggs and spam please

  • i have ass coach and it shows who is playin tonight, but on my mum’s team it dosen’t show who is playin,can anyone tell me why? thanks

    • Your mum probably doesn’t have assistant coach… my Dad doesn’t as he doesn’t take it as serious as me, despite being ranked higher.

      • but it has and index green if playin, red if suspended, bandaid if injured no bandaid on magner no green on golby

      • last year it worked for her and me and we both didn’t have ass coach

        • Yeah – that’s right… it is only on the Assistant Coach now. Last year it was brought to us free thanks to the Assistant Coach.

          Have you seriously bought it for your mums team too? If you have bought it and it isn’t working (obviously you must have some Brisbane or Carlton players to get dots on the ground) you should email Virtual Sports.

          Hot tip – it’s working for my team, but not for my Dad’s because I don’t have it on my Dad’s team. It only works for one email/login.

          • cheers warnie, yeah mum dosen’t have ass. coach so it looks like i have to get it for her, just makes it easier for her should have ass.coach for the pension. lol

          • I might just be a little immature but I keep reading how someone’s mum doesn’t have an ass coach…

            :-)

          • If your mum is in need of an ass coach, I can help out.

            Then again, I just saw the pension part…

    • LOL I have ass coach.

  • If Broughton spuds it again,

    In comes either Carazzo or Adcock (probably Carrots though)

    • Sounds like a great idea. Trade a defensive lock down player with potential to score big (Broughton) with either another defensive lock down player with potential to score big (Carrazo) or maybe a defensive lock down player with potential to score big (Adcock) based on 2 rounds of scores.

      I will give some advice now.

      If you have picked Broughton you are mad to trade him out now. Stick with it. He will get his 130’s and his 60’s. That is the way it goes. Picking another player with the same inconsistent scoring due to what role he will play week for week is not a great move. If you want consistency for a defender then Lids, Goddard, Scotland, Birchall maybe Hepp D is the way to go.

      • Or you could trade in H.Shaw too

      • Fair point Ridley

        Problem is I already have Birchall, Lids, Goddard already and im not sure I can ride the Broughton rollercoaster.

        Carazzo & Adcock both seem to be playing really well through the middle lately, I know its only been Round 1, but I think it may be a sign of things to come

        While Ballantyne is away Broughton might get a go in the mids, but what happens when Balla comes back?

        Broughton was named on the ball last week and then sucked eggs to a 59….

        • Who did Brisbane play last week? Melbourne. So how many small forwards that can destroy you do Melbourne have….. zero.

          Carlton played the Tigers. Carazzo went to Cotchin in the third quarter but he never really played a tight shut down role which he will against Black tonight and maybe a Swan/Pendles next week.

          People need to chill on Broughton. Didn’t anyone look at Freo’s draw before picking him. I thought it was common knowledge that Broughton always plays a tight defensive role on Stevie J. If O’Keefe plays this week you can expect the same.

          • +1 Great analysis Ridley.

          • Ridley SSSSSHHHHHHHH please, i want the impatient coaches out there to get rid of Broughts, whilst yes he will spud it up from time to time he will also win you that tight game when he blasts out those 120+ scores that he does pump out once the inpatient people trade him out.

            Other than that you are spot on in what you are saying about him. People have short memories though.

  • I noticed Adcock’s performances were better when Brown was out last year, I put this down to Adcock getting the Captaincy role while Browny was away injured. I’ve got Broughton and am seriously considering doing the switch this week to either Goddard or Adcock.

    I watched Adcock run a muck against the Dee’s at the MCG, he was running freely and looked to be very fit. Thing is, the 130pts was against the Dee’s too… But I guess you’ve still got to rack them up.

    Broughton out for:

    Goddard vs the Suns

    or

    Adcock without Brown and running through the middle?

    • Any thoughts would be greatly welcomed!

      • no one!

        wait till next week!

        • +1

          • J Brown will be back next week mate. So you will basicly be awapping Broughts 60 for Adcock’s 60.

            It is a long season mate and thats 1 trade that you will never get back. Stay patient and back your research.

    • I think you are correct Alex. Trade him this week and then with a bit of luck when Hudson misses in a couple of weeks you can trade him back in…..

      Didn’t you see the pre season where there were question marks over the role he will have this year due to Hudson and Longer to a lesser extent. The guy is a superstar. Stick with him now that you have him,.

  • If Redden stinks it up this week he is becoming Stanton or Watson me thinks.

    • Why is everyone so keen to sideways trade their premiums? If you thought they were a premium at the start of the year, 2 bad games doesn’t make them a bad pick.

  • All those interested Parker an almost certain starter this week…

  • Gents, & ladies.
    Who should I play, Goldby or Bugg?

  • Hi Guys, when does the full lock out come into effect??

  • Saturday??
