  • Virtual sports sites ( RDT and Supercoach) have been open for 2 hours! Maybe it is a Fantasy!

    • Might have something to do with no price changes to calculate for RDT and Supercoach…

      • It may also have something to do with their servers not being able to cope with the load…

        The service if you can call it that has been pitiful at best!!!

      • Still Full Lockout. It’s 1:47am. I’m going to bed.

    • Might be quite late until it is open because of the fact that’s it’s the first time they’ve had to calculate changes in price etc. Hopefully by mid-season everything will be more streamlined. Honestly I’m not surprised they’ve had so many issues this year.

      Surely Virtual Sports had issues when they first started? Anyway last week it was about 11pm WST, so like 2am AEST.

  • I went with the “greed is good” theme.

    Took Jobe out & put in Cotchin and loopholed him with Scooter as Vice and Captain respectively.

    Been growling at our four cats for the last four hours.

    I call it the CSW syndrome – coulda, shoulda, woulda.

    Coulda kept Jobe and shoulda had Pendles as Captain, then I woulda had 2,200 odd instead of 1,951.

    Ah well, there is always next week.

  • Maybe make that 2,100 odd – too sick to do the math.

    Duds: Birchall,Roughy,Dangerfield
    On the Chopping Block: Dangerfield, Birchall
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Very happy 2203, and sitting 210 overall. Playing 2 rookies on ground in def got me as many as my previous 2 midpricers there.

  • Swapping Mumford and Barlow for Cox and S.selwood at the last minute when realising they have got the Dees. Yeah good move idiot

  • Dangerfield and Birchall on the chopping block…gutsy call, especially after scoring 2203.

    Dangerfield had a slow start last year as well, just saying :)

    Duds: Cox, Birchall, Ablett, Cotchin, Caddy
    On the Chopping Block: Birchall, Enright
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Bit stiff to call a bloke a dud when he gets injured don’t you think? Enright is an out and out gun. Too bad I might have to trade him. And why oh why did I recruit Birchall? Friggin’ spud. Because I didn’t want to pay overs for McVeigh. His 89 looks pretty good to me now!
