Golden Stubby – Round 11

So usually I have to wait until the end of the round to tweet out for nominations for the weekly ‘Golden Stubby’. That all changed this week when a 2nd game rookie posted a massive 144 on Saturday, which even prompted calls from a number of people suggesting that we don’t even need to vote, just give him the Stubby. But in the interest of fairness to the democratic process which we at the Golden Stubby greatly respect, we will still have a vote!

So here are your nominations…

 

Bryce Gibbs 123 – After going down with an injury a few weeks a go. Gibbs found himself leaving a lot of backlines. This week he repaid the faith of all who kept him with a massive 123 against the Bombers.

 

Thomas Nicholls 113 – So Berger goes down and in comes Blicavs for some. Then carnage hits and Blicavs isn’t selected for the first round of the mbr’s! Enter Nicholls, looking like a very handy and capable replacement, plus pitching in with very decent scores at a rookie price! Well done to all who jumped on this gun!

 

Jackson Thurlow 81 – A lot of coaches this week (myself included) were forced to play Thurlow this week. Honestly I wasn’t expecting too much after hi last two scores of 55 and 29. Always happy to be proved wrong though! Thanks for the handy 81 Thurlow, here’s a Golden Stubby nomination!

 

Ryan O’Keefe 145 – An absolutely massive effort from ROK this week against the Crows in a week where DT points were at a premium. Also for those playing at home, helped push DT Talks own Roy over the 2000 score mark this week, along with…

 

Tom Mitchell 144 – Wasn’t this guy worth the wait? Drafted in 2011 but battled injuries since this father son draftee finally made his debut last week for a modest 98. Then decides this week to go into freaking BEAST MODE on the Crows with a huge 144! Which consisted of 31 disposals and 10 tackles! Well done if you jumped the gun on this rookie!

 

So who gets your vote?

  • Is there any point in having a vote?

  • Where is Macaffer two hundreds in a row ….

    • +1 for Macaffer and Ball!! I lost top position in 3 leagues because my opponents all jumped on Mitchell and i brought in Stanton after doing a downgrade the week before!! so i don’t really like Mitchell yet. lol

  • I’m hearing you Stegga – I bought in Stanton for Moloney and lost 3 league games by 5, 10 & 18 plus Dixon getting injured didnt help either :-/

  • Absolutely has to be Mitchell.

  • Mitchell will win but surely an honourable mention to Nicholls. To pull that out second game was huge and would have won the Stubby almost any other week

  • I voted Nicholls.

    0.96% ownership as opposed to Mitchell’s 15% or so. Not only did he make such an impact for the coaches that had him, the ones who didn’t were punished, with Daw/Blicavs both not making the cut, and forcing donuts on many of the coaches who didn’t pull the trigger.

    • Didn’t have any impact for me as I brought him in for this week. Beat both my premium rucks (Cox, Goldy) while sitting on the pine. Mitchell for me(even though I don’t have him), that’s HUGE for a rook, let alone his second game.

  • got all of them except Gibbs. Have to go O’keefe, simply cause he is a massive POD. But the rest of them all get big thankyous from me for stepping up

  • I reckon Longmire and Bluey McKenna and to a lesser extent Brendan McCartney and even Bucks deserve a Bronze stubby for holding back their rookies until the most useful time too
