    Studs: Yeo Simpson Pendles Beams Heppell Goldy Nic Nat Martin Titch

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: As always, there’s always going to be something that goes wrong… At least I didn’t have any doughnuts- but trading Oxley and captaining Lewis really pissed me off. Just goes to show, just because a rookie has reached his B/E, doesn’t mean you should trade him!!

    On the Chopping Block: Rockliff > Wallis probably and Krakouer > Kavanagh (was very impressive)
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: overall 10 players over 100 and 6 other players on 90s. Rest played really poor like 40-50s.

  • Team Name: Joel’s Jaguars
    Round 10 Score: 2061
    Studs: D.Martin, T.Mitchell, Oxley
    Duds: Saad, Lewis, Newnes
    On the Chopping Block: Saad, Seedsman, Newnes, Vandenberg (If out)
    Actually glad Bontempelli was out. During the week was going to go Rocky to Dumont and Oxley to Seedsman! Instead went Rocky to Wallis and Bontempelli to Mitchell. Worked out to be a difference of over 100 points in my favour!
    Unfortunately now the players I want to trade out have round 12 or 13 byes and those I were going to trade did well this week.

    • i’m in the same boat. all the players i want out are rd12 and 13 byes… perhaps it’s time to upgrade cripps?

  • Team Name: Nick’s Ninjas
    Round 10 Scores: 2027
    Studs: Martin, other Martin, Oxley, Steven, Cripps, Enright
    Duds: GREENE, CEY, Saad, Newnes
    On the Chopping Block: Saad, Newnes, Vandenberg (if injured), Clark
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Needed a Rd13 bye premo and I ignore Ebert, Wines, Priddis, Treloar, Ward and pick up Greene and his F#$%ing 38!!!

  • Team Name: Wetdreamteam
    Round 10 Score: 2047
    Studs: Yeo,Higgins,Hodge,Pendles,Parker(C),Ebert,Goldy,Swan,Dusty,Titch
    Duds: Newnes,Saad,CEY,Amon,Belly,Dahlhaus,Vanders
    On the Chopping Block: Vanders,Saad,Belly,Newnes,CEY,Krak
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Oxley on the pine!!! Moved up a couple hundred spots to 1445 overall.

  • Put Jake Kelly on the field over Adam Oxley due to the risk of Oxley being dropped :(

  • Team Name: The Snouts
    Round 10 Scores: 2023
    Studs: Yeo, Heppell, Beams, Pendles, Priddis, Mumford, Swan, Martin, The Ox
    Duds: Bellchambers, CEY, Saad
    On the Chopping Block: Bellchambers will finally be dumped this round!
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Felt like my midfield fired for the first time all season. Ironically, it happens the round Lewis registers his lowest score. Not putting the C on him actually paid off.

  • Team name: The Hairy Men
    Round 10 Scores: 2212
    Studs: Everyone except the few duds
    Duds: Newnes, Ellis-Yolmen, Amon, Vandenberg
    On the Chopping Block: Ellis-Yolmen and Clark
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: 669th for the round got me shooting up the rankings :D

  • Team Name:Lawnmowers
    Round 10 Scores:2129
    Studs: Pendles, Parker, Beams, Titchell, Stef, Dusty, Swan, Simpson, Kolo, Ox and Barlow, Blicavs, Cripps, Grundy and Gray all being solid
    Duds: Newnes, Saad, CEY, VBerg (inj), McCarthy and maybe Dahlhaus
    On the Chopping Block: CEY, Krak
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Finally starting to put up some decent scores and move into the top 15k after my worst start ever, might consider bringing in Jelwood as he tends to have a huge second half of the season and has the R13 bye, happy overall except for seeing Juddy do a knee :(

  • Round 10 Scores: 2055
    Studs: Yeo, Parker, Steven, Cripps, Jacobs, Sartin, Dartin, Titchell, Swanny, Adelynch
    Duds: LEWIS (C) Newnes, Saad, Griffen (you lazy bastard), Amon, McCarthy
    On the Chopping Block: Krak, Kelly (lol).
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Solid week given the injury/demotion hell that was last week, had to field 5 rooks and chose to field Saad over Ox which cost me a spot in the top 1000, Other than Lewis and Newnes I can’t really say anyone went under the low end of what is expected of them, but not enough big scores to carry it above mediocrity. Sadly may need to double downgrade this week to afford Hodge next week, keeping me firmly in rookie hell despite likely having a full 18 and a spare or two.

  • Team Name: Ragnarok Returns
    Round 10 Scores: 2,011
    Studs: Ward, Martin, Mitchell
    Duds: Kelly, Saad, Ellis-Yolmen, Vandenberg, Ibbotsen
    On the Chopping Block: Suddenly a very long list – maybe Cox and Krakouer
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Genuinely bad week of coaching. Average defender score of 48.5. Regrets include downgrading Oxley (to benched Clurey) due to concern about Monday game and leaving Cripps emergency. Fell 93 places to 371.

  • Team Name: The Shirtfronters
    Round 10 Scores: 2,101
    Studs: Dusty, Hannebery, Titch, Pendles, Jelwood, Hodge
    Duds: Bellchambers (ugh), Saad, Vandenberg & his red vest
    On the Chopping Block: Saad, VDB, TBC
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: One of those weird weekends where my players either scored well or scored poorly… not many mid-range scores. Biggest brag at the moment is riding the Hannebery train. 3-round average of 128+. Tickets please..!!

  • Team Name: The Opposite
    Round 10 Scores:1839
    Studs: Mitchell, Martin, Swan, Pendlebury. Yeo
    Duds: Pearce, Leuenberger. Bellchambers, Saad, Gibson
    On the Chopping Block: Unfortunately – 12 players I want to get rid of. so many players, so few trades.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Yet another disappointing week. But a little better than what I expected. Traded and used DPP to get a full team on the park. Unfortunately meant playing Leunberger and Bellchambers. Typical of the season, I had Oxley on the bench. Simply – I hate my team.

  • Team Name: Superswans
    Round 10 Scores: 2011
    Studs:Pendles Beams Tichell Dusty Priddis KK Danger Swan Hodge (only in this week)
    Duds: Bellchambers (gone) Saad Ibbo McCarthy
    On the Chopping Block: Bellchambers finally gone Saad
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Pretty happy moved up 299 spots in overall to 3454 and won my league game by 2 points .. Yep 2 points hehehe … sitting 9-0 on top

  • Team name; killer bees
    score; 2145
    Heros; dusty, titch, ox, pendles, hep, taking a risk on brooksby on field
    Duds; saad, belly, vandenberg subbed

    Thoughts; 718 for round overall sees me fly up. Belly may live if vandenberg out but at moment rage trade for him feels great. Kelly to clurey and belly to ziebell might become vandenberg to ziebell come Thursday teams. Need 1 of belly vandenberg clark or glenn to play for 18

  • Team Name: Sanchos Hawks
    Round 10 Scores: 1961
    Studs: Ox, Pendles, Ebert, Nicnat, Swanny, Goddard, Dusty martin!!
    Duds: Ibbotson, Tarrant, Lewis(not really), Bellchambers, Vberg, Hogan.
    On the Chopping Block: Tarrant, Clark, Bellchambers, Vanders?
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Was looking at 2100 before sunday night… but oh well!
    Im not caring about byes this year so open to trade opinions
