Golden Stubby – Round 13

Voting is now open for the DT TALK Golden Stubby for Round 13. This coveted prize will be awarded to the player who excelled on the weekend, taking into account price, form, opponent and whatever else tickles your fancy!

This weeks nominations (collected by @WarnieDT through Twitter) are:

  • Tom Rockliff (141). Our boy! The man we sponsored this year delivered this week as many coaches jumped off him. Roy is massively happy and look our for the Rockwiz to dominate the second half of the season… 120+ average coming right up!
  • Dayne Zorko (120). Can he go back to back? We have what has been quoted as an uber-super-premo-rookie. What do you reckon? He is looking more and more our F7 keeper!
  • Pearce Hanley (134). The Irishman dominated the game and in a week where some of our big dog premium defenders were out, Hanley stepped up – especially coming off a putrid 34 last week!
  • Paul Chapman (118). An awesome score up at the SCG and notching up his 8th 100+ score of the year. He also has a 5 game average of well over 110. One of the best DTers going around and he’ll battle week in, week out for us.
  • Dayne Beams (117). Mini-Swanny has been an absolute beast of late. 155 last week was a big score to be pipped by Zorko (well deserved though). Maybe this is a good way to make up for it? Look back over his season and see how good he has been!
Honorable Mentions: Black Caviar – what a beautiful horse! Well played… we’ll have a Golden Keg made up in your honor!

  • You are trolling if you don’t pick Rockliff.

    • A lot of people are trolling then ay….

    • What? Rockliff?!

      Pfft… overrated..

      …on the other hand: The Zork!!!! Back-to-back, here we go!

    • No, he has been poor of late, a one of score when not many people own him isn’t great for most. Beams consistently smashing out huge scores for alot of DTer’s

      • Pretty sure that’s an argument for Rocky, not against.

        If a player scores awesome, and everyone has him, it is kind of irrelevant.

  • Rockliff. Got a bit worried with him but has shown last 2 weeks that’s he’s back! :). Almost traded him to Jobe last week, glad I didnt

  • Beamer 4 sure the new pig and most peoples captain

  • Yeh beams for me but easily could of gone with Rockliff

  • Rocky for me. Hopefully he can repeat his dominance in the second half of the year!

  • Chappy has been class since i brought him in.

  • ZORKO!!!!

    Rocky is overrated…..only scores well when they win and when they play shit teams

    • k.

      Scored 134 against Geelong earlier in the year.
      Last year he averaged 117 against top 8 opponents
      Averaged 115 when they lost.

      I can continue if you want.

      • He has scored 6 tons this year from 12 games so obviously not what u want from a premium mid

        4 have been when they dominated shit teams (Melb, GC, GWS, WB)

        Only decent games against good teams is Geel and Haw

        ….and who gives a shit about last year

    • Rocky owner’s finally have a reason to celebrate…LOL.

  • Jobe deserves a big mention for his 101 with a tight Crowley tag, not a huge score, but a huge effort from Watson to overcome the relentless marking from Gazza’s favourite player..

    My vote…ZORKO! 140 followed by 120…both perfectly timed during the bye rounds, the Brisbane number 15 is bloody legend! Congrats on the back to back gold stubbies mate! :D

  • Zorko for mine given Hargrave isn’t an option!

  • Voted Rocky.

    Should get an extra Golden Stubby for dropping so much value and making all the rookie coaches jump off him, and then a pack of beer nuts for dropping enough to make him an easy upgrade.

    Roy needs to pull some strings to make sure it goes to the right man.

    Lol at the people who voted Zorko. Clearly they don’t own Rocky/Beams/Chappy. Nubs.

    • At what point does Zorko earn your respect? after 5 tons in a row? 10 tons in a row? Seriously mate, you either didn’t get Zorko, or your team is SO AMAZING he’s been on your bench for the last four weeks? This is the second week you’ve played down Zorko’s score, 140 wasn’t good enough, now 120 the following week is not worthy of our votes either? And calling us ‘nubs’ for voting for him, are you for real…ROFL!

      • +1.
        And again with “clearly….” bs….ah some people’s egos!

        Sorry Beamer & Chappy……Zorko gets my vote again!

      • Like I said, if a player scores massive, and pretty much every man and his dog has him, what he scores doesn’t matter, as everyone gets the same score.

        Every team in the top 100 thousand will have Zorko, therefore his score is a non factor.

      • And yeah, I did get Zorko, just like every team that has logged in in the past 6 weeks (and even some of those teams that haven’t logged in since the first lockout), but you’re right, my team is SOOOO AMAZING.

        • It’s a pity about your modesty though, need’s serious work asap!

          So let me get this straight, according to you Zorko doesn’t deserve a stubby regardless of how well he scores, even if he was to get 165 (for arguements sake) you still wouldn’t vote for him because he’s a “nub” choice, everyone has him, it’s irrelevant right. So therefore, if there had been a vote when Buddy scored 204 you wouldn’t vote for him either because everyone has Buddy (most popular player in DT) therefore who cares about that 204, it’s pointless, better to go with Chappy scoring 133 instead as he’s unique, therefore his score is actually relevant….huh? I don’t really get your outlook Muffin-boy, your criteria for a vote seems to ignore outstanding performances like Zorko’s 140 last week in favour of’ ‘selected unique’s’ from your AMAZING team, so you can tell us all how amazingly clued in you are, but that’s just my take on it. I always wondered why that cat wears that silly hat, now it makes sense.

          • Sense & logic from Boomer. Zorko’s a first year AFL player, bringing a heap of game onfield & to DT. Who cares if he’s in everyone’s team?

        • So as i read you 100 thousand have Ablett or Swan so i guess their score is irrelevant.. Zorko comes along and Bang 140 120 so he does stand out a bit… Zorko for me this week..My team is sooooooo good lol

    • isn’t that why zorko’s in everyones team?

      CAUSE HE’S SUCH A GUN!!!!!!

    • Only a noob calls noobs “nubs” you noob. Zorko any day of the week.

  • Got 4 of the 5 nominees this week, but has to be Hanley because he is a pretty unique pick which helped me get up in my leagues this week!

  • Week of the Queenslanders

  • 6 Trades Left. 11K in the bank.

    Backs: Lids, Goddard, Waters, Johnson, Broughton, Birchall, Heppell (Darley & Shaw)

    Mids: Boyd, Jobe, Thompson, Swan, Mitchell, Pendles (Zorko & Williams)

    Rucks: Cox, Giles (Redden & Campbell)

    Fowards: Sidebottom, Lance, Chappy, Beams, Robinson, Danger, Dustin (Smedts & Dell’Ollio)

    Highest ranking for the year has been 43rd currently 608th but feeling good about the run home.

    • Likewise. Dusty is now my benchman that will provide able backup IF required. The Zorko has a whole lot of game.

  • Well im playing Zorko over Martin untill Martin can prove me wrong.

    • Zorko vs Martin isn’t even close. I have both and not only am I benching Martin, given a choice I would play Zorko ahead of Roughead and maybe even Priddis. This kid can flat out ball.

      • Haha, it’s scary how good he is! :D

        It will be interesting next pre season to see how many coaches select Zorko if he’s approx 400-450k and producing anything close to this form.

  • The Beamer. The Beam Box. Dayne Beams. My choice for the Golden Stubby this week. Zorko for a close second. The kid has been amazing.

    • Lovin Beamer too, tempted to make him captain next week. Went Zorko for the vote, but just over Beams. Weird how Swanny missed the cut, I guess 132 must be a boring pig score, lol.

  • Zorko the ‘magnificent’!

  • I don’t have Twatter so i couldn’t nominate…………….. But i’m not voting because there is no Beau Waters in the list.

    He got me over the line, and has my vote.

  • Zorko, apart from game 1 as sub he has been like Barlow, consistent and scores big

  • Has to be Zorko playing him as my 6th mid now ahead of the horse

  • DEF: Delidio, Goddard, Waters, Birchell, Hargrave, Darley, Sam Shaw, (Townsend, Spurr)

    MID: Swan, Ablett, Stanton, Boyd, Thompson, Beams, (Gibson, Sexton)

    RUCK: Cox, Giles, (Redden, Stephenson)

    FWD: Franklin, Sidebottom, Robinson, Dangerfield, Martin, Cloke, Zorko, (Pfierrier, Black)

    9 trades left and $256,900 in the bank.

    Thoughts on trades to complete my team??

    My thoughts are:
    Defence: 1 or 2 upgrades ( want to get in Carrazo and im not sure who else to put in. not sure who to trades out though)

    Mids: i would say complete. any thoughts if not??

    Rucks: maybe i get ivan maric ( id love to have him but sure how to get him main problem is having the cash)

    Fwds: Maybe complete. Should i upgrade or downgrade Pfierrier???

    Thoughts on all this?? would be great

  • What about Matt Rosa????

  • Rocky
    best debut for my team ever!
