    Studs: Hodge, Shaw, Colquhoun, Lewis, Pendles, Heppell, Beams(C), Sidey, Dusty, Gray
    Duds: Saad, Ox, Rich, Dahl
    On the Chopping Block: Cripps if he doesn’t play, Saad, Ox, Rich
    Overall Bye Ranking Change: Wasn’t that last week
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Great week of footy following the tragic news on Friday. I hope every game from now on is played with the same intensity from the players. I was going to take Gray’s 112 as C, but I forgot to move my VC to him. Almost a blessing in disguise seeing as my other players I was considering (Lewis, Pendles, Heppell, Beams) all racked them up!

  • Have the Geelong Adelaide scores been added yet?

    Also I had the c on a Geelong player, I assume that my emergency will count?

    • To clarify, the c was on Clark

      • because Clark wasn’t named, your emergency will come in, and whatever score your VC had will be doubled

        • I couldn’t make mine add up but what i think is happening:

          I had the VC on Parker, and the C on Clark – i am getting a captain’s score for parker.
          As Clark wasn’t named i am getting my emergency’s score for him
          I have Blivacs on the field and Krezuer as an emergency, it is taking Kreuzers score of 88
          Motlop is getting a 0 as I do not have an emergency

          I current have a score of 2213, It should be 231 with Motlop 90 and Blivacs 98 counted. It is complicated, i hope they have work this out tonight.

          • My final score shoud be 2313

          • so what should happen:
            Kreuzer as E is removed (-88) due to a ‘playing’ ruckman
            Blicavs is added on (+99) due to the ruling
            Motlop is added on (+90) due to the ruling

            you’ve then got a net increase of 101 from your current score

          • spot on @samdiatmh.

            My score was just updated to 2314!

  • Team Name: Soviet Selection
    Round 14 Scores: 2057 RDT
    Studs: Pendles, Goldy, Heps, D Martin, Gray, Picken, Macrae, Lewis (finally), Hodge, Parker
    Duds: Ox, Yeo, Nic Nat, Dahlhaus,
    On the Chopping Block: Ox, maybe Dahl
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Not many trades left, so probably going to have to deal with Dahl’s latest scores. Hopefully he lifts a little :/

  • Team Name:The Dawes are open
    Round 14 Scores:2123 AF
    Studs: Pendles, Martin, Steven (C), Hodge, Gray, Parker
    Duds: Goddard, Yeo, Ox, Ebert, Swan
    On the Chopping Block: Oxley/Saad

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Goddard’s 29 actually ended up being fortuitous for me as in my H2H my opponent had him as captain, very pleased, won by about 30 points.
    If I have stuck with Vandenberg this long is it worth trading him now?

  • Round 14 Scores: 2320
    Studs: Boyd, Pendles, Picken, Parker, JPK, Dusty, Lewis, Fyfe, Newnes, Gray, Mitchell
    Duds: McVeigh, Saad, Rich
    On the Chopping Block: Saad and Rich
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Best score for the year for me

  • Team Name: Telfs Team
    Round 14 Scores: 2300
    Studs: Boyd, Beams, Goldstein, Pendles, Martin
    Duds: Dahlhaus, McVeigh, Gibson
    On the Chopping Block: Dahlhaus, Gibson
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Gary Ablett is a beast

  • On my score they have actually added downie’s score as my emergency for Jacobs. will I get the extra 48 points for Jacobs average or will they use downie’s score. I need Jacobs average to beat my bro

    • They’ll add the difference between Downie’s score and Jacobs’ 99, so I think that’s 47.


    Round 14 Scores: 2074
    Studs: Pendles, Dusty, Heppell,
    Duds: Yeo, McVeigh, Ebert, Vince, Dahlhaus, SWAN CAPTAIN
    On the Chopping Block: Kmac, Rich, Oxley, Ibbo

  • Team Name: auxDT
    Round 14 Scores:2363
    Studs:Boyd, Pendles, Goldy, Dusty
    Duds: Dahlhaus
    On the Chopping Block:Hamling
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Disappointed by Dahl’s score, but he’s a premo and we gotta keep him.

  • At last, after a disaster of a season, a real score: 2191. Improved my overall by 5,900 and won my 5 league games. Sweating off for Rocky’s return: at $485k and a be of 71 he’s a high priority.

    And don’t tell me the Dons a right behind heard. Goddard & Dempsey with 11 possessions between them!!! They are about as much behind Hird as the Carlton players were behind Malthouse.

    • Didn’t you have a sulk a few weeks ago and quit the game?

      • Good memory! Yep but got over it. Struggling along now but will never completely escape the mess the first half of the season left me in.

    • Just saw my score after the Adelaide-Geelong update. I had only one player involved: CEY for whom I got 73 points. But my score was increased by only 33 points to 2224. But I’ve double checked and the scores add up, meaning the 2191 was out.

      • was Dumont an emergency?

        if so, that works out:
        Dumont taken out (-40)
        and CEY added in (+73)
        for a net gain of 33 points

  • 2440 as a whole my team went as best as it has all year. captained armitage which paid off

  • Team Name: Wolverines
    Round 14 Scores: 2372!
    Studs: JPK C!, Boyd, Pendles, Dusty, Armo, Lewis, Mundy, Newnes and Gray
    Duds: Dahlhaus, saad
    On the Chopping Block: Mccarthy and Kelly
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Went from ranking 21000 to 5000 in two weekly rankings of 102 and 94 so I’m pretty happy :)

  • Team Name: Bloodbath N Beyond
    Round 14 Scores: 2134, without thurlow score
    Studs: Pendles, Mundy, Beams, Lewis, JPK!!!!!!, Martin, Gray
    Duds: Haus, Ox, Saad
    On the Chopping Block: Ox
    Sad week of footy, all clubs payed their respect in their own way with the moment of silence in the circle, arm to arm. Great score this week, finding some form with bringing in Jpk for 301! Best trade i have done.

  • I’m interested to know, has there ever been a cancelled game before in AFL?

    Surely there must have been due to severe weather or some kind of tragedy similar to what happened this week?

    It seems so strange to me that the AFL didn’t know what to do about the situation and that all 3 fantasy formats don’t appear to have a standard protocol for this sort of situation.

    • confirmed, first time an AFL game has been cancelled!

      i’m also in Ultimate Footy league and we all copped zeros for crows/cats players

  • Round 14 Scores: 2277 If the score additions work as I expect
    Studs: Hodge, Mundy, Boyd, Lewis, Steven, Parker (Took his VC score, would have been Steven!), Neale, Griffen, Gray, Dusty, Titch
    Duds: Yeo, Ox, Nankervis (But not really, thanks for showing up big guy), Bont.
    On the Chopping Block: Ox to Rocky, then Daniel in for either Kav or Amon.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Pretty ok week, just need to get rid of that last rook spot and get Stef back.

  • Team Name: Koalas
    Round 14 Scores: 2222
    Studs: Mitchell, Martin, Gray, Armitage, Parker, Lewis, Hodge
    Duds: Ebert, Rich, Oxley
    On the Chopping Block: Rich, Oxley, Cripps, Ellis-Yolmen
    Overall Bye Ranking Change: N/A
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Traded in Ebert instead of Pendlebury & captained Adams instead of Armitage…could have been a lot better

  • Team Name: Ragnarok Returns
    Round 14 Scores: 2,119
    Studs: Pendlebury, Armitage, Martin
    Duds: Goddard, Tarrant, Saad
    On the Chopping Block: Dale, Dumont, Ellis-Yolmen, Saad, Tarrant
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Ranking slipped almost 100 before missing game scores updated. Must have been a very good round.

  • Score – 2474
    Studs – Hodge, Boyd, Mundy, Newnes, Stevn, Pendles, Beams, Parker, Martin, Mitchell, Gray
    Duds – Saad & the Bont
    Chopping Block – Saad, Schade, Cripps, Dumont, Kavanagh

    Took Parkers 112 as VC instead of backing Pendles or Jack Steven, could have hit the 2500

  • Team Name:The Silver Lining
    Round 14 Scores:2269
    Studs:Martin, Boyd, Lewis, Gray, Heppell, Mundy
    Duds: Rich, Cripps, Dumont -_-, Boston, Yeo
    On the Chopping Block: Cripps if he’s injured, Schade, Amon, Rich
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Alright round, shouldve fielded obrein over dumont and taken parkers vc…

  • My score hasn’t updated with the crows and cats players yet, showing 2063 whereas I add it up for 2207. Ah well, I’ll just wait, must be some manual corrections going on in the background.

    Anyway, what a big week, you guys have some monster scores. glad I backed in beams for C (133) over titch’s safe 105. Also Lewis is back baby! Other guns – picken, heppell, mundy, dusty, Parker

    Wtf – yeo, swan, bont, wines, ox

    • Warnie did tweet to add them up yourself if you were that keen
      otherwise, wait till tomorrow to find out

      We were also told that it would be late to unlock this week (probably not till morning), due to the ‘extras’ that the Geelong/Adelaide players received

      Don’t forget that the current ‘live’ score includes your emergencies, so don’t forget to take them off (if you have any)

      • Yep – grab a calculator. Add all scores in your 22 who played, then add on the Crows/Cats averaged. DO NOT include your emergencies unless you need to include them.

  • Who is this guy above me…. :O

  • So is Goldy perma-captain now or what?

    • those 3 straight 70s are a distant memory!

      considering the high scores all round, i am gutted i got stung with Swan as C

    • I’ve had him captain for back to back 135s!

      Up against Geelong this week and look what Gawn did to their weird ruck setup last time out…

  • Team Name: Penultimate Cabbage
    Round 14 Scores:2045 (without Jelwood atm)
    Studs: Parke, Gray, Beams
    Duds: McCarthy, Tarrent, McVeigh
    On the Chopping Block:McCarthy
    Overall Bye Ranking Change: +1500
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: McCarthy’s 21 for an entire game is too much to bear so will be gone. Still need to tidy up the backline

  • Team Name: Won4ColinNeverWill
    Round 14 Scores: 2122 (I think that now contains GEE/ADE)
    Studs: Newnes, Simpson, Lewis, Parker, Neale, Goldy (c), Dusty, Titchell, Gray, Greene, McKernan (solid effort for 2wk cover for Steff!)
    Duds: Ox, Saad, Rich, Bont, Dahl
    On the Chopping Block: Ox, Saad, Rich, Bont or Amon
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Toby Green 49pt at end Q1 – didn’t even double that but still a major upturn in his form. Bring on this week with $$$ to spend and then Steff to come back following week…

  • Got 6 trades left and 4 upgrades I want to do for 22 premos, hope the cash sitch works out for me!

    • What upgrades are you looking at? I have 4 trades left…

      • Shaw, Ablett, Pendles and 1 more fwd back premo off the top of my head.

        • Maaaaaaybe Picken instead of Shaw.

          See how they go this week.

          • Mmmmmm, Gary. Picken vs Shaw is a hard choice. Shaw has a lower BE so may be a safer bet? Either will do the job though.

  • Team Name: Western Bullfrogs
    Round 14 Scores: 2035
    Studs: Goldy, Pendles, Boyd, Mundy, Dusty, Gray
    Duds: Gibson, Rich, McCarthy, McDonald
    On the Chopping Block: Rich, McCarthy, McDonald
    Overall Bye Ranking Change: n/a
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: If my players could stop getting injured and suspended(looking at you buddy and sloany) I might finally be able to upgrade some rookies!

  • For elite who will average higher Tuohy or Colquhoun??

    Cheers boys

  • Team Name: Weeeeeagles
    Round 14 Scores: 2263
    Studs: Goldy (c), Boyd, Dusty, Beams, Picken, Neale, Gray, Parker
    Duds: McVeigh, Yeo
    On the Chopping Block: Dumont, Ox
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: After a horrible year finally a decent round, need to work GAJ, rocky and Lewis into my weak midfield in the next few weeks.

  • Big ups to Lachie Neale.

    Been nothing but amazeballs since I went the risky option and brought him in about 2 months ago.

  • Thinking Ox to Simpson. RDT with 4 trades left (yep…) so I’m unsure whether it’s even worth it. Yes/no?

  • Scored 2335 best score for the year Jack steven as C. Lots of studs not many duds (dalhaus, rich, Yeo) I am puzzled that I dropped 400 places? Please explain :(

  • 2089 RDT

    2351 Fantasy

    Not bad overall.
