    Duds : JPK, heppel,martin, Harvey
    Traded out Barlow and beams for selwood and Watson. Copped 3 donuts. Rohan filled in for Harvey and kersten scored 2 as cover
    For martin. I went into today 263 behind in my prelim with a 3 v 1 situation. I had parker (128) , mcviegh (113) and Nroo (121). He had Ben Griffith’s 58. I pulled a rabbit out to make GF after I’d conceded defeat last night.

  • 1698 in Real DT with 2 donuts, and Kersten(2), Murphy (24), Simpson (27), Sucking (18). Had no trades left this week with Dusty, Harvey, Beams and Barlow. Was underfeated all year and ranked in top 1000. Oh how things can turn to crap

  • Yer I was ranked 240 , 4 weeks ago.since then 7 donuts, sub par scores and injuries a galore. Now I’m 847 overall. Wheels are well and truly off. By the miracle chance I got into the GF. I held onto JPK and heppel hoping only 1 week. Martin back in. So hope only Harvey to trade and spare trade for Thursdays carnage lol. Still can’t believe 3 v 1 and 263 behind but get up. Glad I held faith in Nroo cause there is a lot of ppl now with their foot in mouth about him. As he has last 7 round average of 109.

  • Guys Zorko or Gray. Zorko has Geelong don’t tag much and Gray could get Crowley?

  • Team Name:Bloodbath N Beyond
    Round 22 Scores:2155
    League Finals Results:WWW
    Studs:TOBY GREENE!! rocky, ryder, zorko, mcviegh, parker
    Duds: swan, priddis, cotchin. pearce, pops kelly, bartel, sauce
    On the Chopping Block: Dal santo and Harvey for Jack and Ski
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: toby greene is a gun

  • Who to get out first Dal Santo or James Kelly?

    • I say… Hold both. NDS scored 90 against Adelaide and looks to have hit some form. I brought in Kelly 2 weeks ago for some stupid reason and is very very average. I have these two as well. NDS has Melbourne and Kelly has Brisbane @Simmonds. If you have something else to do, hold. If you have nothing else to do, trade Kelly, you can’t look past his crap form even though he is playing the lions @Simmonds.

    • Tough call. Dal Santo vs. Melbourne and Kelly vs. Brisbane. I would ditch whoever had more value. And what do you mean first? This is the last week.

  • Guys, just a quick tip who want to get a premo mid this week.
    Consider Lewis, has had an absolutely brilliant last month, 144, 156 and 108 in his last one against the cats who are his LEAST favourite team to score against. He is playing Collingwood. Macaffer is gone (no tagger), Beams is gone, Young is gone and Swan is gone. If you bring him in like me, he will get you 100+ maybe 135+.

    Consider the Eagles midfielders this week in Priddis, Gaff, Shuey and Masten. Although Priddis got a 79 (tagged by Cross) he will bounce back and IMO will score 130+. Gaff, Shuey and Masten are extreme PODS (owned by less than 2% of the comp and are all in brilliant form.

    Toby Greene. BEWARE:
    He has the Bulldogs and may be a chance to get tagged by Picken after his 118,127,126 and 165. Although, he could also go big, again!

    Just quickly, if you have any Geelong or North players that you want to trade… HOLD. They have Brisbane and another easy team.

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask me!

  • Will crowley goto boak or gray this week?

    • Who do you think? Who is more damaging?
      Definitely Gray. He is in brownlow contention and is in great form

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: lucky to score well this round, i brought in gibbs instead of greene (didnt believe the hype), but he still got 113 and i was rank 827 for the round, still 200 overall. hoping to hold on to a top 500 by seasons end.
