  • Ill tell you why this game f*****g game Sh*ts me. You know those dots on top of a player usually green if they are playing and orange or red you cant really tell when they are not. Lachie hunter was not supposed to be playing so I was smart to take dane swans score of 122 with the vice and PUT THE C ON HUNTER who was a late inclusion and not only is a shithouse option to have captain he was the sub so now my captain has a grand toatal of 9 x2 and I lose all my leagues which I would have all won if he didn’t play. :'( I hate this game but the game hates me more!!!!! FMDT

  • Pretty stupid if ask me. U put a bloke who is emergency as captain ???? Silly move. U must make sure they are 100% not named at all. Lesson learnt I guess

  • Brad Ebert or Leigh Montagna???

  • Like how he complaining , but its his rookie mistake that most dream teamers would just not risk, not like swan banked a 180 or something. Just a solid 122 that ablett was always going to get close to or beat, why risk it with a emergency as captain. Just gotta wonder some times. U roll the rookie dice, u get rookie results.

    • no well thats what i was doing by putting the C on hunter that would mean taking his score you always take Vice score of upwards of 120 and I TRIED to do that but it ends biting me in the arse. “Why risk an emergency while playing”. In my mind (at the time) it wasn’t a risk it was actually a safe option what happened if gary ablett got injured and scored 2 points.

  • Close. I’d go Ebert. cause port going to win more games and Ebert is very consistent. Joey has a bigger cieling but has been known to be tagged out of it or go missing

  • how injured is martin?

  • When’s lockout over in fantasy ?

    • would have been about 11pm in Perth so that’s 1 am on the East Coast.

  • I want to down grade Langdon. Who should I get in?

    • Hallahan. Make money. He should get a guernsey for the next 2 weeks and be ripe for trading (if cows can be ripe) pre Round 9, Hawthorn’s bye round.

  • Highlight of the week, traded in Fasolo & Rockliff. Grand total 90 points and I lose by 38. This follows up having Xellis on field in Round 5 for his 2 and trading in Mumford in Round 4 for his 0.
    This week out: Rohan and (unfortunately) Langford. In Billings & Hallahan. I’m keeping Fasolo, hoping he’s OK after the bye. I hate the bye rounds – they force you into trades you don’t want to make so you can worship before the altar of Bye Structure!

  • Last week X Ellis on Field.
    This week it was Templeton.

  • i m thinking of offloading dunstan

  • Team Name: Cold War Vets
    Round 6 Scores:1919
    League Results: LW
    Studs: Abllet and Beams
    Duds: Where do I begin Rockliff, Martin, Chapman, Faslo
    On the Chopping Block: Cotchin time is running shot especially with the byes coming up
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: FMDT

  • Team Name: Bad Juju
    Round 6 Scores: 2006
    League Results: WWWL
    Studs: Beams, Swan, Pendles, Danger, Ablett,
    Duds: Jelwood, Swallow, Suckling, Griffiths, McVeigh, Jacobs, Sandi, Gunston, Dusty, J.Merret
    On the Chopping Block: Ellis, Dunstan, Griffiths, several others.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Another shit round with too many ‘premiums’ scoring 70-80. I dodged a lot of carnage (Fasolo, Hunter, etc) but failed to capitalise on it. All of my on field rookies did well, scoring over 70 with the exception of Griffiths. I need Mackie to return this week so I can get Griff or Langford back onto the bench.

  • Who is more of a priority to trade Tyson, T.Mitchell, Griffiths to S.Mitchell, Hickey, Ambrose, Suckling, Lloyd and Why?? Thanks

    • Whomever suits your bye structures. Richmond have R8 bye to perhaps Griffiths -> Sitch.

      • Griffiths to Mitchell and Tyson to Hallahan or Billings thoughts? I’m also fielding Hallahan or Billings if they get traded in. That leaves Tom Mitchell on my bench or on the ground losing money, but i might just keep him.

  • Team Name: TasmaniaDevils
    Round 6 Scores: 1889 (fantasy)
    League Results: WWWLWL
    Studs: HAHAHA not bloody many that’s for sure – K. Simpson, Treloar, Beams, Parker, Higgins
    Duds: Most of my team but will just put down the real disappointments – McVeigh, Swallow, Bugg, Tyson, Jacobs, Dusty, Fasolo
    On the Chopping Block: Uh so many trades to make with so little trades able to make. For this week I’m focusing on Bugg and Tyson/Fasolo
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: F@ck you fantasy, whenever I’m going good all of a sudden my team like to get injured omitted etc. Forced trades come out of no where. I’ve got trades planned for the next week all the time, but no I’m forced to make stupid trades that I don’t like or want. It’s bloody ridiculous.

  • Are there any rookie defenders under 200k with decent JS? I know Cutler is one, but he may be too expensive for me

  • when should i offload dunstan?
    Thoughts appreciated

  • Team Name: Lewo’s Legends
    Round 6 Score: 2087 (fantasy)
    League Results: WWWW (in 3 leagues)
    Studs: Mitchell, Ablett, Pendlebury, Cornes, Beams, Kolodjashnij, Boomer, Dangerfield and Parker
    Duds: McVeigh, Swallow, Enright, Suckling, Tyson, Sandi, H-Mac and Lloyd

    SPUDS: Leppitsch and Hardwick for my Cutler and Lloyd troubles, McVeigh, Dustin Martin, Jacobs, Enright, special mention to VS for not having a partial lockout on Friday which would have helped.
    On the Chopping Block: Impey, Cunningham, Polec, Griffiths, Langdon, Taylor, Rohan dunno who yet to get rid of yet, but I really need Zorko in my side
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Got beat by 2 absolute novices, furious with it, both had Marc Murphy as their M2/3 and all their PODS scored ok

  • which out of these possible trades should i make?
    cotchin to murphy
    x.ellis to hallahan
    cotchin to hannebery/fyfe/josh p. kennedy (this one probably best for my bye structure)

  • i need a premo foward with a round 9 bye!
