    Did anyone take the punt on Hutchings and put him on the field? Or am I the only one who went down that punt. Hoping for a huge 100 from him (probably won’t happen)

  • Avatar of Brett

    nic nat to beat cox and kennedy, and priddis under 98.5

  • Avatar of What the bejeebers

    if it wasn’t for all the back and forward carnage this week, I would have brought in Mark Hutchings, if he scores a sub 70-80, those who brought him will be laughing.

    • Avatar of mbrucie

      Yes, but it wasn’t this week people were worried about – it was the byes. Unless he smashes it tonight, I reckon he will make way for McGinnity NW.

  • Avatar of mbrucie

    Hoping for 612 between Lids, Pridda, JJK, Cox, Dusty and Vlas. Looks like beautiful conditions in the west, should be a good game.

  • Avatar of Albert Lloyd

    I like Masten over Deledio too, that seems good value to me.

    • Avatar of Simon

      Totally agree. Lots of profit taking for the agencies though… 1.88 for an even money chance? Get the fark outta here!

  • Avatar of Roos_rule27

    1543 with Selwood, Cotchin, Dusty, Vlastuin, Cox and JJK to come

    Hoping for 2100 :)

  • Avatar of mbrucie

    If I was having a punt I see value in Martin over Shuey, Houli over Grigg and LeCras under 78.5.

  • Avatar of Thollo

    Anyone fancy Martin under 40 so I get a league win? @EmeraldIllusion

  • Avatar of Hotties

    who will win: i need vlastuin to score over 73 points??
    i needa know!

    • Avatar of Adam

      hang on…ill just get my crystal ball

      be close mate but i rekon vlastuin is more than capable

  • Avatar of Justin

    Need Vlastuin to get within 30 points of Cotchin, could be close.

  • Avatar of Stange

    Crappers….really needed Hutchins to start as sub to have a shot this round.

  • Avatar of Birdy

    lecras should score more than his line i would think

  • Avatar of CAPTAINBLOOD17

    Got 99 problems and Cotch ain’t 1..

  • Avatar of jake

    need Nic Nat and Scott Selwood to play crap for a come from behind win.

  • Avatar of Stange

    I’m facing the crappiest round of 2013 so far – due to get smashed in eliminator, after four straight wins, and will lose all my league games.

    Looking for miracle +/- performances for 10 different players to come through in two salvageable league matches

    • Avatar of Simon

      I hear ya Capper, only a miracle (like last week – Birch 0, Jacobs 22 on Sunday) gets me thru this week. Despite “upgrading” rooks looking at losses across the board. This week can’t finish soon enough!

  • Avatar of Vince

    My first lucky week really, missed almost all the drama, SJ as captain probably my worst move…also fielded Gwilt over Terlich and Goodes, yeah yeah I know I shouldn’t even have Gwilt still, but oh well…

    1765 with Priddis, Nicnat, JJK, Dusty and Vlas…hoping Hutchings does well to make me some cash too…

  • Avatar of

    in an ideal world need jjk to kick seven, nicnat to smash it, dustin martin the best for richmond….

    • Avatar of

      im playing trent cotchin in my main league. he has himself and deledio. i have jjk and nicnat..jjk for seven!!!!!!!

  • Avatar of MASTER ROGO

    Need a big matches from Martin, Vlaustin, JJK, Priddis, Selwood and Cox to crack 2200 :)

  • Avatar of EmeraldIllusion

    1821 with Martin, Vlastuin, Cox and Kennedy to go. Anyone think I could hit 2200?

  • Avatar of Albert Lloyd

    JJK is AOK with me

  • Avatar of Albert Lloyd

    Told y’all Masten over Deledio was value.

    Anyone get on?

    • Avatar of Jarrad

      Wish I’d seen these bets earlier because I might’ve got on that one. It looked very tempting. I own Delidio in DT so it would’ve created a paradox in which the DT Gods would attempt to make Delidio score both really well, and really poorly, just because they wouldn’t want me to do well. Either that or just have Masten get injured straight away and Delids limp to a 60. Actually, that second scenario is much more likely.

  • Avatar of Jarrad

    If Hutchings had some JS he would be the real deal.

    I reckon Tom Mitchell will hold his spot in the Swans 22, so I probably wouldn’t go for Hutchings now anyway.

    PS Just putting it out there…is it too early to call Tom Mitchell the rookie pig? I think it’s quite fitting to be honest.

    • Avatar of Aidan

      I’m gonna jix him right now but do we have another Barlow?

      • Avatar of Jarrad

        I think so my friend. I often wonder whether Barlow would have greater DT output now if he hadn’t broken his leg. I suppose it would have to go down as a no right now because he is absolutely smashing it…but he still has slightly off weeks every now and then.

  • Avatar of Jarrad

    Is it a good time for the transition from Cox to Naitinui? I know I’m calling this very early, but I truly believe that Cox will struggle to score well now that Naitinui is back in the team, at full fitness and in form.

    If at any point once the byes are over I get to have a luxury sideways trade that isn’t the result of an injury, I reckon I might do that trade…of course, between now and then there will be plenty of time to see whether the trade is worth making.

  • Avatar of Jason

    Vlastuin you gun. I was watching the game and I thought he had hardly got the ball and then I look on here and I find out he has 6 tackles to qtr time! Way to boost up your score.

  • Avatar of Stange

    WTF Cox?

    All stats due to hitouts – Lazy bugger ever since Nic Nat took over as the number one ruck in the side

  • Avatar of Stange

    Why has Vlastuin’s score gone down from 34 to 30 between the quarter time?

  • Avatar of Albert Lloyd

    Yes Flossy. Boo Eags.

  • Avatar of Damien Wellington

    Early call Vlastuin for golden stubby :P

  • Avatar of Albert Lloyd

    Completely had it with LeCras.

  • Avatar of Ryan

    Dusty and Cotchin need to get going for me and the tigers!!

  • Avatar of Jason

    Lift Martin lift. I need another 72 from you or I’m out of the Eliminator

  • Avatar of Jarrad

    Ok, so my tipping competition has some silly extra features on it. This week is one of the five joker weeks where your tips are worth double. The competition also has the bonus point rule for a 9/9 week. I have 8/8 so far this wee with my tip for tonight being the Eagles.

    At approximately 7:37 pm EST I attempted to log in to change my tip to Richmond. My internet failed to load the page 3 times before it finally managed it at exactly 7:39 pm. I went straight to the tips and then hesitated, not realising that I needed to change now. Then I remembered something I saw on DT earlier this weekend about a guy who had changed his tips at the last minute and as a result, screwed up 2 tips that he would’ve otherwise got. I decided not to change.

    Fast forward just over an hour and I am absolutely kicking myself. I could’ve gained a 4 point bump in the tipping if I’d just ballsed up, That’s not to say that the game is over yet, but I just don’t rate the Eagles highly enough this year to be able to redeem this game.

  • Avatar of Jarrad

    Go home Hutchings, you’re drunk (on DT points). By that I mean I wish he wasn’t doing so well. It’s really undermining my outlook on my supposedly “master crafted” trades for this week.

    • Avatar of johnny

      These monday games really put me off. Stopped me from getting him in purely because of the fact there was no certainty he would be playing!

  • Avatar of Damo

    1 half of Lids, Vlastuin, Priddis, Kennedy and Cox to go, sitting on 2002. In a fair and ideal world, i would be looking at 2200, but are the DT Gods fair and ideal? Fat chance!

  • Avatar of Tom H

    Cmon Vlastuin and NicNat, chuck in another 30 points this last quarter!

  • Avatar of Albert Lloyd

    All LeCras does these days is spill contested marks or attempt to chase a player with the ball and fail miserably.

  • Avatar of Kevin

    OMFG, cotchin get the f**k off my team please, sick of ur shit performances week after week. Even hutchins is outscoring you for f**k sake.

    • Avatar of Big Feller

      Cotchin and Buddy are fast becoming the worst picks of DT13!!!

    • Avatar of Stange

      Yep, totally hear ya.

      While I’m glad I got rid of him after his 50 or 60 before he had a rest, I’m still pissed of I paid more than 570K for him at the start of the year, and lost money.

      I’ve learnt my lesson – he had a breakout year last year, and I shouldn’t have paid full price for a player following a breakout year.

  • Avatar of Albert Lloyd

    Well, Masten beat Lids as I predicted.
