‘Par’ – Round 16

This is based on the scores from the teams who are ranked in the top 5k overall and averaged out. We thought this gives the best indication of the ‘better’ teams so we can all gage our weekly efforts based on theirs. We think this number is about right… therfore ‘par’ for each round and will be posted here in DT TALK shortly after each round (thanks to Virtual Sports). There’s no point averaging the top 25k or everyone in the competition as some of these guys would probably forget to do their teams. So the top 5k average is the mark.

If you don’t think this is a fair indication, then ppffthhh. Take it for what it is.

For those (like me) who play that other silly game The SuperCoach ‘PAR’ was 2302pts

  • Came First in all my matches with a 2318!

  • Hating on suckling so much right now!

  • I climbed 143 spots to 3,742 with a 2202, so may be a tad lower.

  • No Nabzz you fool!
    Read it again

  • Hahah Nabzz big weekend mate? I scored 2314 and climbed up to 290th overall. Shitting myself, never been going this well.

  • 2296, sitting 20k aiming for top 10k or maybe even top 5k by years end. 600 points behind 10k. avg 2218 after the byes, better than anyone else in all of my leagues (bar 1)

  • scored exactly par! haha

  • Fuck yes still in eliminator!

    • Still in the eliminator, well done mate. :)

    • Good job me too. 2378 this week, rose to 2002. Happy to be doing this well.

    • lucky. last week drew my game which of course means the highest overall scorer goes through. I was 28775. Other guy was 28777 :(

  • For the sake of less bickering Warnie (and don’t worry I don’t have an issue, I’m too lazy to nominate on twitter, so I’m not even fussed who wins) How about just upping the nominations to 10?

    • Then it will be “make it 15” and so on. There can only be one winner, so a pool of 5 is easy. If you look across the voting each week, it is lucky if 3 players are even in the race for the win. This week looks like an exception thins far.

  • 2243. 2,225th overall. Jumped up around 200 spots this week.

  • Cannot believe Rosa has been overlooked yet again…..

  • Who would be the best to finish off my forward line?
    I am thinking Sexton – Couch then considering either Treloar to any fwd I haven’t got or 5fer to Zaha and downwards in price. I think I would actually prefer to keep 5fer and trade Treloar.

    Currently fwds look like;
    Sidebottom, Beams, Robinson, Franklin, S. Johnson, Treloar, Couch, Martin, Pfeiffer

    I really want to keep the mid/fwd aspect operational so these are the best options but the is also Gibson in the mids which could be used also.

    • 6 trades left, 126k in the bank.

      Sooooo many choices. Basically i could win my league with the moves I make with these.

      Might just grab Couch now or next week and sit tight ready to pounce for the next little while.

      • Sylvia is on fire. He’s back in the midfield and ahead of Magner and Couch.

        • I wouldn’t say Sylvia is ‘on fire’, although he is starting to find some form and could be a mediocre downgrade. Still needs to pump out a 120+ before you can consider him as a decent upgrade.

      • Whitecross seems to have turned the corner… averaging a shade under 92 and with his two most recent scores being 110 and 117. He can be a bit inconsistent though, and from what I can gather, doesn’t like playing in the wet… still, at $403K and with a BE of only 41, now could be the time to snaffle him up.

  • Who do you think will finish off the rest of the year with a higher average, Ablett or Swan?

  • Clairview royals. Im ranked 38k down to 30k

    Ranked 697 woth 2358 and a bad captain choice. Could have got 2400+ but happy as larry beating my 2 opponents and jumpin the ranks. Hoping for a sub 25k finish after being ranked 100kmidway through

  • 2,235 this weekend which saw me jump 246 places into 2,119th.

    Wish I could nail a captain choice… couldn’t miss at the start of the season, but have been

    • Oops, hit the ‘submit comment’ button by mistake. Talk about spudding up.

  • 2,235 this weekend which saw me jump 246 places into 2,119th.

    Wish I could nail a captain choice… couldn’t miss at the start of the season, but have been spudding up of late. Might just have to play it safe and leave the (c) on Swan for good.

  • 2060 won 4 of 5 league matches, i think the par score is unrealistic considering there are close to 300 000 participants and only the top 5000 (about 2.5%) are used to come up with the 2213, hardly anyone got to this total in any of my league games, you may have to include the “middle class” (say the top 75000) punters for this particular statistic i reckon.

  • Scored 2233 and still went up 21 spots from 850 to 829.

  • Scored 2339 to improve 125 spots to be 278th overall..

  • got 2097 with 3 donuts so i was pretty happy

  • stoked with my 2322 this week, especially since I had plenty of guns out, meaning I had to play Khunt, Spurr, Jarrad Redden, Gibson and Treloar on the field!

  • 2419, jumped 1150 spots from 2512 to 1362 and now sitting directly under calvin :)

  • Climbed 10000 spots to 24k. Very Happy with my score of 2354! Happy with Priddis, S.Selwood, Houli, Hurn, Jacobs and Johnson! After finishing in the top 500 last year, everything has gone wrong for me. But with a complete team now I am looking at a strong finish!

  • 2206 with Suckling sucking and Maric getting his mullet seviced. Could have been a huge week

  • Haha i got exactly par!!!

  • need some help, trade in ablett or swan??

  • 2258 including Wilkes’ 11 instead of Spurr’s 104. Could of been 2300+

    • Yeh…and I could be shagging a supermodel if I chose better looking parents…..

  • If you picked Spurr before lockout over someone playing you would either be psycich or one of the worst coaches in the league, so no point getting all FMDT over it

    What will be interesting, is if anyone picks Sam Shaw or Lee Spurr to start this week over an out of form premium.

    It is tempting though, here are some numbers from my defence: Hanley 64, Suckling 31, Adcock 63, Lake 67

    On the bench Shaw 84 (I think we have to remind ourselves it was against GWS in an absolute thrashing, and the last quarter there were a lot of position changes, including Shaw up forward) and Spurr 104

    Very tempting, but you have to show faith in your premiums and not react based on one week

    • no joke I versed someone with lee spurr (104) on field in front of marty clark (30) as emg!!!!


  • Who should i get as a ruckman…. Cox or Maric?

    • IMO Cox is starting to fire, so I would go Cox.

    • I’d say Cox because he has been a gun for years, and Maric has only been doing it for one year, so Cox is the safer option

  • fisher 18 and broughton 39 killed me 2100!

  • 2392!
    happy with my score this week hence the posting :)

    i moved up 15 hundred spots to 2381st

  • I only like this article when I score above par…

  • Have made alot of silly mistakes in my first dt year. Currently ranked around 38000th. Have learned alot though and look forward to breaking into the top 5000 next year.
