    Eliminator Status: What is eliminator?
    DT Studs: Swan (C), Pendlebury and Ablett
    DT Duds: Townsend, Cloke, Dempsey, Robinson and Adcock
    On the Chopping Block: No one – Not enough trades (1)
    Trades this week: None
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Very disappointed with that score. Still managed to win my main league so pleased about that.

    DT Studs: Josh Jenkins, Dangerfield, Lids, Petrie, Bugggyy, Pendles, Scotland
    DT Duds: Darling, Boyd, Stanton, Dempsey, Saad (others that r lucky not to get a mention)

    DT Studs: Grimes, Swan, Ablett, Beams, Dangerfield
    DT Duds: Goddard, Boyd, Chapman
    On the Chopping Block: None
    Trades this week: None
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: I thought my score was reasonable this week, but found out after lockout that it was enough to sneak up to 3rd overall. I thought my season was shot after a Maric donut and some other poor scores last week, but am pretty happy to be 70 odd points back of the leader. I feel like I’ve made a few stupid trades that have cost me points this year, but I’m still in a very good position.
