  • Team Name: Cazalywhitendiggers
    Round 17 Scores:2226
    League Results: W
    Studs: Not enough
    Duds: To many
    On the Chopping Block: Cloke to Goddard , Nroo to a K.Jack.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: I’ll be glad to have Rocky back in the team. Still improved overall from 308 to 277 despite the carnage.

  • Round 17 Scores: 2137
    League Results: W
    Studs: McVeigh, JPK, Jelwood, Zorko,Parker, S Martin, Dangerfield
    Duds: Hanley, Swallow, Pendles, Barlow (C), Swan, Sandi, D Martin, Gray, Duncan, Minson(Sure he scored ok, but he in the 70s for over 45 minutes and gave me an aneurism)
    On the Chopping Block: Suckling to… no idea, Swan to Jack
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Took JPK off captain about an hour before the lock out, that was a bad move. Kinda satisfied that this week was freaking awful and I still got over 2100, did move backwards in the overall ranking for the first time since R7 though.

    • And Zorko has possibly kept himself in my side as a permanent bench player. While Blaine Johnson needs to be whipped.

  • Team Name: Squire’s spuds

    On the Chopping Block: getting rid of lecras this week for dusty, then mcgovern next week for zaha and hopefully swanny the week after for JPK
    was on track for 2200 before my pies spudded it out :(

    still regretting getting in prestia over JPK a few weeks ago, he was averaged 80 for me …

    Duds: Priddis, Duncan, Jimmy, Dusty, Sandi
    On the Chopping Block: McGovern, A. Swallow, Hibberd
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Ward in the last game got me over the line by 20 points after being down all weekend in the top of the table clash. And to think I only brought him in to get through the bye rounds.

  • Team Name: ScareSyndicate

  • Team Name: Bloodbath N Beyond
    Round 17 Scores: 1982
    League Results: WWWWWWW
    Studs: Best on: Steve Johnson. mcveigh, Kelly, dal, Cotchin, sauce, haus
    Duds: SWAN! EBERT! Sandi, bartel, lecras,
    On the Chopping Block: McGovern, swan
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: yeah pretty shit!


    this week im not sure whether i should be upgrading either

    swan to jpk?
    mcgovern to dusty?
    lecras to dusty?

    which one will get me more points..swanny has be terrible lately but please help! :)

  • What happens this week with the split round in dt?

  • so not lecras?

    • mcgovern plays a key position either forward or defence. LeCras spends a decent amount of time in the midfield meaning more consistent and bigger scores. Get rid of mcgovern.

  • Round 17 Scores: 2150
    League Results:L, W
    Studs: McVeigh, Stevie J, JPK, Stefan, Parker, Danger
    Duds: Hanley, Pendles (C), Duncan, Martin, Gray
    On the Chopping Block: Derickx
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: JPK or Pendles all week were wrestling for captain. The Pirate convinced me:(. Oh Well.

  • Many thanks to my midfield for a wonderful experience. Only one (Selwood) scored a ton. Among the highlights were Pendlebury, traded in last thing on Friday and made captain (I had Johnson in all week but changed my mind just before lockout) – Pendles scored his season low. Swan scored his season low. Shenton, filling in for Rockliff, scored his season low thanks to the vest. Gaff scored 2 above his season low and Tyson had a bummer. My defence had only one ton (McVeigh) and was graced by Bartell (74) & Hanley (67) who were both traded in in the last 2 weeks. The result: a score of 1,976 and an overall ranking down from 901 (or thereabouts) last week to 1822 this week.

    Oh, and a special mention to Luke Dahlhaus who I traded in before Round 11 when he was averaging 98. Over the next 4 rounds he averaged 72, so I traded him out. In the 3 rounds since he has scored 102, 90 & 102. I think I will take up needle point embroidery instead!

  • Team Name: spoon winners 2k14

    League Results: W L W
    Studs: Dangerfield, Johnson (C), Kennedy, McVeigh, S.Martin
    Duds: Shenton, Swan, Hanley, Bartel, D.Swallow, Sandilands, Pendlebury
    On the Chopping Block: Swan
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Pretty satisfied with that score after deciding to keep Rocky and play Shenton this week. Think its time to put the pig out to pasture.

  • Team Name: Frenkiers Drerm Term
    Round 17 Scores: 2095

    Studs: Macrae, McVeigh, Danger, Stefan Martin, Jelwood and J Kelly
    Duds: Tex Walker
    On the Chopping Block: Tex Walker
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: I shouldn’t have gone for Barlow as captain. I will swap Tex for Rockliff via a Roy Maneuver.

    League Results: WW
    Studs: McVeigh,JPK,Stefan M,Lobbe,Danger,Boomer,Parker.

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Back into the top 1000 in RDT at 738th but slipped back to 344th in AF.

    Duds, Barlow(c) Westoff Bartel Pendles but I’ll forgive him

    On the Chopping Block: Swanny and Sandilands (for Rocky and Zaha via DPP magic)
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Through to the GF (yes, that’s right… GF) and will have sweet far call to do for the final 5 rounds of the year except pray my RDT team stays alive in Eliminator!

      • Whilst I’m here,

        Team Name: Gary’s beautiful brake foot
        Round 17 Scores: 2296
        League Results: Wins I’d assume, not really that worried (267 overall)
        Studs: Welcome to new team members NDS and Stevie J, and big ups to Matt Lobbe- you are so underrated and when the Berger is back you’ll be joined by your South Australian counterpart of the Sauce variety
        Duds: See Dane Swan’s post
        On the Chopping Block: I’d say Swan, but he’s handy midfield cover now (got Suckling and Zorko as back and forward cover respectively) so I’m looking at Claye Beams down to Morabito and potentially Sam Gibson up to Rocky after his rest
        Vent/Brag/Whatever: Leader is within 1000 points and I’ve got them in my sights!

  • Round 17 Score: 2265

  • Infact there is no way I’m bringing in Cotchin. Ebert survives just because Port will smash Melbourne to get back on track. Swanny to JPK and Suckers to Mitchell.

    My “Brave Move” of getting out both Ablett and Rocky for Duncan and Hanley for this weeks trades back fired. Should have stuck with my original plan for getting in either JPK or Steve J.
