    Round 16 Score: 2222
    League Results: W W W W W
    Eliminator Status: Dead
    DT Studs: Carrazzo, Robinson, Watson, Baguley, Redden, Ablett(C), H.Shaw, S. Shaw, Beams, Pendlebury, Swan, Shaw, S.Johnson, Deledio, Zorko.
    DT Duds: M.Johnson, Cloke, Goodes, Maric.
    On the Chopping Block: Ryder, Waters.
    Trades this week: Either Ryder>Cox/Mcevoy/Jacobs or Waters>Scotland.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Fairly happy with the score considering Maric donut and 5 premiums on the bench. Finally got a captain choice right with Ablett.

    Could someone help me out please. Should I trade Ryder or Waters? Can only afford to trade 1… Thanks for your help!

    • who have you got to cover? depends on if you are relying on Redden or Campbell in the ruck Vs someone dudley in the backs. If you have Ellis/Morris/Shaw they look like playing out the season – not redden or campbell

      • I have Redden and Campbell for Ryder and Shaw, Spurr and Baguley for Waters. So I’ll trade Ryder, do you reckon I should go to Cox (could get rested), Mcevoy (won’t get rested and is Saints’ only ruckman) or Jacobs (could get rested and only ruckman)? Thanks heaps mate!

  • Question..If your Dream Team login is the same as previous seasons is there a way to check previous year rankings?

    • wish you could but no. Maybe AFL can do something for next year. Id like to know too

      • Yah, I think I finished around 10,000 last year, goal is to improve on that, but would like to check

        This year I think I’ll save a screen shot of my end result or something like that.

        I tried searching ‘Dream Team’ in my emails for the results emails, but only a few came up, so obviosly I have deleted most of those emails and can’t find the end of season one

    DT Duds: Suckling, Michael Johnson,

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: I got Suckling in this week only to have him do bugger all. Michael Johnson should have been on my bench instead of Spurr….

  • Team Name: tomtastic
    Round 16 Score: 2213
    League Results: WLL (losses cause of extreme unluckiness)
    Eliminator Status: out week ago
    DT Studs: Lids, Beams, Zorks, Gablett, Carrots, Boyd
    DT Duds: Cloke, Mackie (and Giles for not playing)
    On the Chopping Block: CLOKE IS A F***ING HACK OF A SACK
    Trades this week: thinking about downgrading Longer > another rookie ruckman freeing up some cash to do Adams > Murphy/Stanton maybe for a complete team leaving 2 trades left.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Would’ve won if it wasn’t for Mackie and Cloke and would’ve gotten 2400 if they did well and Giles played. I traded out Redden for Campbell expecting him to cover for Giles for when he wasn’t playing (again, extreme unluckiness).

    Thoughts on my trades this week? If I get Murphy in it would be in a couple of weeks when his BE is low and his price is low.

  • Team Name: Living the Dream
    Round 16 Score: One kick/mark off 2200
    League Results: WLWLW
    Eliminator Status: Eliminated
    DT Studs: Lids, Beams, Boyd, Captain GAJ
    DT Duds: Broughton (more like nought-ton) Smedts, Chappy
    On the Chopping Block: Broughton, Smedts, Giles
    Trades this week: None as yet, Broughton if he is dropped
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: To those people thinking of trading in Marc Murphy…when he was tagged (and rightly so after awesome early season form) he struggled big time which is part of the reason he is so cheap. With Judd surely out for a few weeks he will cop the number 1 tag – monitor him for another week or so at least. Don’t make the same mistake I did!

    On the Chopping Block: no one, but cant stand anymore of broughtons bullshit.
    Trades this week: none for the first time in ages
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: First, Broughton: NEVER AGAIN! As good as you have been for me the past couple years its too bad i dont have enough trades to trade him out (3)
    Secondly, priddis nearly won the game for me. Needed 30 odd points in a quarter of footy to win in a match i really wanted to win (bragging rights).

    DT Duds: Hargrave/Lake, Danger, Dusty and Buddy for giving me a forward donut.
    On the Chopping Block: Probably upgrade Ellis or Hargrave to Suckling in couple of weeks if affordable
    Trades this week: Straight swap Jacobs in for Giles – happy so far.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Highest weekly ranking ever, still well outside the top 5k though (sitting at 8,175 thanks to two dud rounds in the MBRs). Couldn’t decide between McEvoy or Jacobs but happy so far, super disappointed that I had a forward donut (Dusty+Buddy+Sexton), even with 80 more I would’ve made top 10 weekly.

    Studs: Mitchell, deledio, beams, spurr

    Duds: Ross Lyon – wtf? we all know that broughton is a fuc#&ng gun and is wasting his time playing in the forward pocket?….. Suckling- traded carazzo for him after he was injured at the start of the year and will not be picking him again. when he does score well it is usually when he junks it up in the last quarter after being on 20 at half time. he also seems to have a weird role now and spends a lot of time on the pine..

    Chopping block: probably no one just gona save trades.

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: keen to get some players back this week, hopefully broughton doesn’t get dropped!

    Vent/Brag/Whatever:Good solid round, devastated by the Tiger’s loss to the suns, Only made better by having a free bet on the Suns & collecting $450. As I thought this is the type of games the Tigers normally drop.

    On the Chopping Block: see above
    Trades this week: If I had enough spare trades I would be so happy to cull Broughton.

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Picked up another 250 places, into 2,119th overall. Can’t pick a captain to save myself… ST this week… happy enough with 110, but many others scored better. Moving the (c) back to Swan this week.

  • Team Name: Collingwho?
    Round 16 Score: 2,053 (with two donuts, and a bench full of premos)
    League Results: WLW
    Eliminator Status: Out a couple of rounds ago
    DT Studs: Lids, Carrots, Thompson, Ablett, Priddis, Beams, Zorko, Montagna
    DT Duds: Stanton, Chapman, Hall
    On the Chopping Block: Hall
    Trades this week: Hall to a rookie, Pfeiffer up to Goodes
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: One of the most frustrating weeks I’ve ever had in DT (including MBRs). Fell short by $5k to bring Goodes in through my preferred method. Then I lost a game in my most important league (all but ending top four hopes, but still comfortably in finals) by fourteen points. What made it more frustrating was the below.

    I needed just one of the many decisions/events below to go right to win:
    Captain Ablett instead of Thompson, I would have won.
    Playing Pfeiffer ahead of the sub affected Hall, I would have won
    Ivan Maric not being a late withdrawal and not being a donut, I would have won
    Tom Campbell not being dropped in the event of the above, I would have won
    If Mr. “Reliable” backup Mohr blayed and not meant a donut, I would have won
    Goddard or Martin playing, I would have won (Waters and Franklin forgiven as it’s an injury)
    Chapman not scoring 44 points below his average, I would have won

    ARGH. At least this week I’ll get Goodes in, and means Martin drops to being cover for the forwards and mids. Means I get rid of Hall too.

    Trades this week: None. LTIs only.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Lost in two leagues by 20 and 30 points. Matt Suckling gets anywhere near his average and i win. He won’t be gettign a Xmas card from me.

    On the Chopping Block: Nobody
    Trades this week: None
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Thommo and Porps might have scored well but their combined last quarter was pathetic, costing me my one loss in my most important league by 30 points. Spurr being a late inclusion Saturday was annoying too as I would’ve held off the Beau Waters trade. Nevermind.

    Trades this week: Gotta hold with only a handful left.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Licking my lips at price drops for Pendles and Murphy to swoop up in a week or two’s time.If Zorko continues his brilliant form, he’s predicted to hit the $500,000 mark. Would this be a first in dt history for a 1st yr player?
