    Studs: Hodge, Shaw, Oxley, Blics, Sidey, Sauce, Dahl, Devon
    Duds: Brodie Smith, Beams, Heppell, Priddis, McKernan
    On the Chopping Block: Was planning Ox and Colq, but might have to reassess and trade McK/Smith

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Donut in mid, could have cracked 2300, oh well. Kind of a shame GAJ went huge too because not many people had Goldy as C. Still awesome though.

  • Was Matthew Boyd injured? Missed the game

    Studs: Mundy, Enright, Rockliff, Jacobs, Ziebell
    Duds: Hibberd, Smith, Fyfe, Parker,
    On the Chopping Block: Hibberd, Smith, Colquhoun, Cripps
    Overall Bye Ranking Change: Dropped from 988 to 1476 :(
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Massively screwed up the Saad -> Smith trade, should have gone Malceski. I was 8k off doing Cripps -> Ablett this week :(

  • Round 16 Scores:2345
    Studs:GOLDY(c)!!!!!, Hodge,Mundy,Shaw,Armo,Boak,Lids,Goddard,Blicavs,Gray
    On the Chopping Block:Probably just downgrading 2 benchers.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever:highest score for the year and moved up 2000 spots into 5000th after my horrible start to the year.

  • H.Taylor or B.Smith for Heski

  • Team: Ddevils
    Score: 2330 (Fantasy)
    Studs: Ablett (c), Goldy, Oxley, Picken, Dahlhaus, Pendels, Goddard, Gawn, Gray, Swan, Bont, Lewis.
    Duds: Higgins, Newnes, Heppell, Parker, Leuenberger, McIntosh.
    Chopping block: McIntosh Berger,
    Don’t know whom yet.
    Another good score. Makes a huge difference getting the captain right. My choice of captain has been poor all year. Cost me a lot.
    Don’t know what to do with Gawn… Was going to get rid of him but took a punt again.. Might keep him for another week.

  • Score: 2250
    Studs: Hodge (C), Mundy, Steven, Rocky, Gaz, Neale, Jacobs, Gray
    Duds: Boyd, Yeo, Hibbo, Smith
    On the Chopping Block: While Adelynch is ok, Bartel is unmissable. Some rookie tweaking for the 20 odd k I’ll need
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: 2250 with two 40s and only 8 tons is pretty good, 10 in the 85-98 range, still kicking myself for taking the C off Gaz on Thursday, but Hodge got within 50 so I can’t feel too bad. Hibbo’s minor rise in form seems to be over, sadly leaving me with two backline failures to still work on.

  • Team Name: luke v has a big d
    Round 16 Scores: 2261
    Studs: Motlop, Dahlhaus, Ablett, Picken, Pendles, Rocky(C), Jacobs, Steven, Hodge, Gray
    Duds: Barlow, Selwood for getting reported because I had a donut, Fyfe
    On the Chopping Block: T.Lynch
    Overall Bye Ranking Change: Not a clue
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Traded Houli for Mal, and Stanton for Ablett and gained about 80 points & lots of $$

  • Score: 2453
    Studs: Goldy, Hodge, Stanton, Boak, Blicsavs.
    Duds: Rich, Sam Mitchell.
    Chopping Block: Rich and someone for Gaz.
    Vent: Traded Scott Thompson.

  • When is lockout finished?

  • Do I get rid of Adams-> rocky or HepD-> rocky??

    • If you already held Adams last week… Then I would hold for an extra week. He has been in great form, and Heppell is so inconsistent that he shouldn’t be in anyone’s final team

      • I will be 10k short of Ablett if I get rid of Heppell, that is the problem

  • Team Name: gethawked
    Round 16 Scores: 2075
    Studs: Dahl Motlop Gaz Hogan Rocky etc…
    Duds: Swan (c), Yeo B.Smith Kmac McKernan – everyone else
    On the Chopping Block: MCKERNAN
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Won my league! Jeez need to improve captain choices? Changed Gaz to Swan last minute… :(

    • Not sure about the everyone’s keenness to ditch McKernan. Are so many of you running him as an R2 or something?

      He’s a rookie, going against one of the very best ruckmen in the competition who is in massive form. What did you really expect? If you’re using him as a cashcow/R3+F7 swingman/Martin standin (as I am) then, well, he’ll be back to usual next week, and he’s got a couple price rises left in him.

      I mean, if you need the cash, well, ok, but I don’t see the point in ragetrading him.

  • Bartel or Eski more important this week?

    My D6 is fields.

    My F6 is Krak / Mckernan.
