  • Just when i thought Horsely couldn’t be any better…

    He has the second highest points per minute of anyone in the league?!? That is a huge stat!

    Great read as usual!

  • Defs going Porps to Beams next week

  • thanks for the help

  • i like that Melbourne is ranked 19th in dreamteam scoring

  • How bad has Ellis been?!?!

    In his last 4:

    47 50 6 44

    If he wasn’t in a team destined to spend eternity in purgatory (the bottom 10), he would have been banished to VFL land yages ago.

    Can’t believe I held that chump so long

    • Seeing as though basically each score has been sub affected, they aren’t as bad as they seem. He was solid after coming on this weekend, I doubt he’ll be sub again.

    • If you think Dreamteam scores are a DIRECT reflection of ability, then you are sorely mistaken.

    • You’re a fool Brendan. Do you even watch the actual matches anymore? or do you just sit at your computer watching the points tally. Sad.

  • yet again you have delivered a wonderful article. Thanks for the contribution I look forward to reading it again next week and as the season unfolds.

    Regards, bradley

    Overall thoughts…?
    im concerned about my defence :/
    and suggestions on what i should do with swan and murphy..?
    should i get zorko or not..? personally im not sure :/

    rd 11: 12 players :/
    rd 12: 7 players
    rd 13: 11 players :/

    17 trades left
    $42,200 in salary atm

    • Defence: 5/10, but that’s pretty standard this year – First 4 are keepers, 5th is due for an upgrade in 3-4 rounds, and your last 4 have little job security

      You know that you’re going to get Zorko, so why even ask?

      • i have to trade out either swan or murphy, probably murphy is the option considering how long he is out for. i dont know who to trade in for murphy though.. :/
        i probably should trade one of my rookies coz than i get zorko and have more cash in the salary, but who to trade out of my team.. im not sure of :/

        • Catch ya later A Hall…

          • yeh thats wat ive thinking and wat im going to do..
            just got to bring in a premium in the mid for murphy, not sure who to bring in though..
            yehh ill be looking at trading 2 or 3 in rd 11 and hopefully thats all my trading for the byes..

        • you having 12 out in the first round will not be very good BUT it does help the other rounds…. i guess

          • yehh ill be looking at trading 2 or 3 in rd 11 and hopefully thats all my trading for the byes..

  • Who should I get for Murphy – Has tossed up A swallow, thompson, Ablett, Ebert…. ?? trying to make sure it fits into my bye structure.

    Getting rid of Milera > Zorko to free up up some cash

    Heppell v Suckling (even)
    Hargrave v Morris (win)
    Pendlebury v Swan/McDonald (win)
    Rockliff v Hayes (even)
    J.Selwood v Shiel (win)
    Jacobs v Cox (loss)
    Dangerfield v Chapman (even)
    Zorko v Beams (loss)
    D.Smith v Cameron (even)

    Thoughts? Should get a win…

    • Too early to call, he may trade, change bench players, players out, wait until Friday night.

  • Mitch Robbo could be an ok price to complete my fwdline in round 11… if only Hall comes back by then…
