Golden Stubby – Round 13 (MBR 3)

goldenstubbyaward

As the byes finish, we’ve got the all important Golden Stubby to award. Who deserves the big award for this week when so many of our big boys were out… or scoring poorly?

Josh J Kennedy – 131

After missing the first bye round with a calf injury and then having the bye himself last week, JJK owed us big time. He came out with his Flinstones run up and booted 5 goals to kick start this hideous bye round with a massive score.

Matthew Boyd – 152

Despite some of us being scared of his ‘Old Man Calves’, Boydy has been brilliant since his bye. He was the correct answer of a lot of those midfielders under $500K to pick up. 34 disposals and a beast of a score gets him a nomination.

Michael Barlow – 124

Calvin’s number one captain option was brilliant… up until he spent half of the last quarter on the sidelines with a knock to his head (fingers crossed his cheekbone is all good). He kicked the first goal of the game and then racked up 31 disposals. Awesome!

Jimmy Bartel – 125

We sweated on the team sheets as he was a “50-50″ chance to be playing this week after his little trip over the US to watch some NBA during his bye week. He flew up to Brisbane and dominated the game. 31 disposals and 10 marks helped him to the second highest score of the game.

Leigh Montagna – 146

Another ‘correct answer’ for a midfield upgrade is Leigh Montagna. He was awesome against the Demons, as a lot of us thought he’d be. The ‘Tags had a pretty tough week due to his involvement in the whole Steven Milne drama. What a way to respond.

Honorable mentions: Steve Johnson, Andrew Swallow, Dean Terlich, Dean Cox, Matthew Stokes, Mark Blicavs… ASH MCGRATH.. and some more – write them in the comments.

    matty barlow and ash mcgrath for me

  • Avatar of johnny fontane

    marc murphy for me. because his injury made me trade him for boyd instead of the planned ‘upgrade’ to birchall!

  • Avatar of JungleMuffin

    Micky B for me. Was given the C for 1 week only, and got the job done. It would have been even bigger if not for the injury.

  • Avatar of Daniel

    I vote Boyd, for teaching me a harsh lesson to trust my instincts instead of other’s advice. Reversed the Boyd trade in for Deledio instead.

    I think Terlich deserved a mention, for standing up when ‘premiums’ like Birchall, Burgoyne and Hanley are failing us miserably.

    • Avatar of jono

      +1 thinking last week of who to upgrade terlich to this week, but i got birchall,goodes and vlastuin to worry about first..

      • Avatar of Simon

        +1 more… Terlich was going to become Gibbs till this week. Birchall gets the chop instead.

        Great game by Boydy, showed us all there’s life in the old legs yet!

        +2
        Sorry Birch… I’ve been patient, but you’ve turned into a spud. Even J Webster got a better score.
        Thankfully have had Goddard, Hepp all season.
        Terlich was going to be Gibbs too.
        Now have gone Birch out Staker to backline & Daniher in.
        Vlastuin to Gibbs.

    Boyd…in and Captain….bargain at under $500k

    • Avatar of Simon

      He’s got Melbourne next week… hard to argue really.

      • Avatar of Dan

        Oh i meant for the week just gone…deserves the stubby this week for me. But yes certainly will challenge GAJ and Swanny for captain honours for Rd 14.

  • Avatar of Henry

    Meant to make Rhino Keefe my captain this week. Swore when I saw after the lockout that I missed – damned RESET button! Gritted my teeth and prepared to put up with the turkey I was left with. MATTY BOYD you beauty!!!!!

  • Avatar of feathers

    Boyd, back to his best. But I would have voted for Scott Selwood. Was awesome watching him running around holding one arm up and refusing to go off hurt and still manage to score another 60-70 points while injured.

  • Avatar of Kameron

    How about stokes 116

  • Avatar of Mighty_Legs_12

    No gig for a Terlich 100?

  • Avatar of Danny

    Good write up, but I am surprised my C wasnt in the group, R Griffen.

  • Avatar of Westozzie

    Boyd for me (had the C on him)
    Can’t get over he went into the wk end owned by 3%
    Well worth the risk if he is at a higher risk of getting injured

    • Avatar of Daniel

      I agree it was worth the risk, especially with 44 trades. Still kicking myself. Glad I grabbed him in Supercoach a couple of weeks ago however.

      • Avatar of Westozzie

        Yeah i got him a couple of weeks ago and loved all the talk on this site that he was too risky.. scared a few away and kept him as a good POD. gotta risk it to get the biscuit

        • Avatar of Daniel

          Especially when you’re ranked around 40,000 like I was :) Not much to lose. Supercoach is getting difficult now however with only a few trades left for the rest of the year.. means I might be stuck with Barlow’s broken jaw, who I traded in this week.. Ouch. Oh well, nice 306 on debut as Captain.

  • Avatar of Daniel

    Just noticed I have exactly the same weekly score & rank as Dunny in Supercoach. 1869, 3609.
    I’ve Caught up about 15,000 spots over the byes. In DT I think I’ve caught up about 10,000 (mid 30-thousands to mid-20 thousands).

    Guess it’s easier to gain big ground when you’re in a poor position. Can’t climb much if you’re already in the top 5K :)

  • Avatar of Daniel

    Think this must be the closest Golden Stubby race we’ve had all year!
    Less than 40 votes separating the top 3.

  • Avatar of skink

    It’s only close because so few people ‘took a chance’ on Boyd… picked him up two weeks ago for $53k less and 112, 152 so far. One of the better trades I’ve made this year.

    How can JJK win the stubby? Everyone has him so it is no benefit!

  • Avatar of James

    this is one of the closest golden stubbies of all time
    i remember last year i think zorko won by under 20 votes or so
