    • I think the perfect week for that trade may have been Round 4, but a very nice score.

  • Team Name: The Shirtfronters
    Round 18 Score: 2,346
    League Results: L
    Eliminator Status: Pushing up daisies
    DT Studs: Most of my team
    DT Duds: Would it be harsh to put Stevie J in here?
    On the Chopping Block: Nobody
    Trades this week: None planned
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Scored 2,346 but lost my league match by 20 points! Have now dropped to 9th (oh my God, I’m Richmond!) and a big chance to miss out on DT Finals. I just can’t buy a trick; even made some risky trades this week to cover for 3 donuts. Still, happy with that score… especially with a donut AND a (1) from Stevie J.

    Overall rank is 2,556.

  • Team Name: Boyd’s Doggies
    Round 18 Score: 2232
    League Results: WW
    Eliminator Status: Out
    DT Studs: Almost everyone, but special mention to GAJ, Hayes, Waters and Treloar.
    DT Duds: Stevie J, Jacobs, Hanley & Lake.
    On the Chopping Block: Lake, Shaw or Bootsma
    Trades this week: Probably best to save trades at this stage of the game.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: In a week where only 5 players scored less than 90 (including a doughnut and a 1 from Stevie J, can’t be too unhappy with that score. Also regretting trading Gibson, would been a very handy price rise.

  • Team Name: Hillbilly Tigers
    Round 18 Score: 2329
    League Results: W / W / W / W / W
    Eliminator Status: What is Eliminator?
    DT Studs: Swan, Ablett, Cloke, Giles, Goddard, Treloar (Covering for Buddy) and Smith (Cover for Robinson)
    DT Duds: STEVE JOHNSON (I know he was KO’d after 5 seconds), Dempsey, Ward and Townsend (Cover for Darley/Shaw
    On the Chopping Block: No one, only have the one trade left
    Trades this week: ^^^^^^^^^^
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Highest ever score so pretty chuffed about that, espicially with a 1 from Stevie J and a 44 from Townsend. (Darley and Shaw on the bench0

  • Team Name: B4GN Raptors
    Round 18 Score: 2,095
    League Results: WWWWW
    Eliminator Status: Gone ages ago..
    DT Studs: GIBSON, Giles, Ablett and Goddard.
    DT Duds: Birchall, Johnson, Hanley and Boyd (Expected more from him).
    On the Chopping Block: Was going to be Giles, but after his performance this week, he lives for
    another week.
    Trades this week: Contemplating trading in Swan, as everyone seems to have him.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Not happy with my team this week. Premiums didn’t perform and copping a
    Robinson donut didn’t help. AND not to mention having Gibson outscore all but
    one of my midfielders whilst sitting on my bench!
