    Studs: Rocky (C), Montanga, Goldy, Swanny, Mundy, Boyd, Jelwood
    Duds: Ellis (didn’t mind it as a crows fan however ;) ), KK, Armi was average
    On the Chopping Block:No one
    Overall Ranking Change:Went up 1707 spots just this round to 5856 overall
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Made top 4 in all my leagues so hoping for another good round this weekend, unsure if i should make any changes to my team before finals or not

    • You had all three players that got 155

      • Yeah how good!

        • Also turns out i got 2420, and my overall ranking is actually 5821
          Also Lambert on the chopping block and possibly Kreuzer (thoughts on that?)

          • If you can get Kreuz to either Martin/Goldstein (whichever you don’t have), that would be a winner of a trade

  • Team Name: Average Homeboys
    Round Score: 2315 (with a donut from natnui)
    Studs: Mundy, Swan!, Rocky (C), Pendles, Goddard, Gaff, Lewis, Dusty
    Duds: Ward, Gray, Kreuzer, Nic Nat
    On the Chopping Block: Nic Nat or Kreuzer to Goldy, Ward, Sloane
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Amazing round for me, had nic nat played could have got to 2400 but my condolences to him and his family

    • How can you dud Nic Nat?


      • Mate because it still affected my score, if you read what i said at the end, i still payed my respect

        • Still wouldn’t put him in the “duds”. Would have just left it at 2315 (with donut from Nic Nat)

  • Team Name: Jimbobs Baggins
    Round 19 Scores: 2104
    Studs: Mundy, Pendles, Lewis, Rockliff, Selwood, Jacobs, Swan, Motlop
    Duds: Cross, Malceski, McVeigh, Priddis, Parker, Harmes, NicNat, Gray
    On the Chopping Block: Cross, Malceski, NicNat
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Bloody Deledio out made me play Harmes for 32 and NicNat out on the eve of finals for a donut (sympathies to his mother however). Eski out Boyd in this week

  • Team Name: Nic-Nat-Noo
    Round 19 Scores: 2169 AF
    Studs: Mundy, Pendlebury, Selwood, Rockliff (C), ATKINS (on field for Fyfe), S.Jacobs, Swan, D.Martin
    Duds: Simpson, Malceski, Heppell, Armitage, McVeigh, Nankervis (on for McK), Gray
    On the Chopping Block: McKernan for Kreuzer, Malceski for Hannebery/Montagna
    Overall Bye Ranking Change: -17
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Ok week but still under par performers with Armo, HepD, Gray etc. Had to field Atkins who shot out a very good 75 for Fyfe (hope he is a POD now). I was going for 2200+ this wk until HepD didn’t ton up :(

  • Some of the scores I was delighted to field include…

    Kolodjashinj 65
    Malceski 60
    Yeo 47
    Ellis 69
    Parker 61
    Lambert 60

    How did everyone avoid a bad score like me? I dont get it

    • I didn’t, I had:
      Malceski 60
      Simpson 82
      Heppell 68
      Lambert 60
      Atkins 75 (a bit harsh under Fyfe circumstances)
      Nankervis (again, harsh under McK situation)
      Gray 80
      McVeigh 65

    • Well you’ve got three mid pricers in your def (Can’t judge myself, I have two), and rookie in your mids/forwards. So that’s only two premo duds.

      • Still, at least Heppell, Gray and McVeigh should’ve done better, at least 90.

        • Yeah that was to Robbie, you’ve only got the one midpricer there. McVeigh made me want to punch a wall.

    • Dont worry it happens to everyone
      I fielded Kolodjashinj, Ellis and Lambert also

  • Team Name:the mizfits
    Round 19 Scores:2376
    Studs: everyone except….
    Duds: YEO
    On the Chopping Block: YEO
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: best DT score of all time pretty stoked

  • Team Name: PorkSoda
    Round 19 Scores:2324
    Studs: Mundy, Edwards (if he didn’t get back in the side I was facing a donut), Selwood, Pendles, Lewis, Rocky, Stef Martin, Swan!!!, Martin, Goddard
    Duds: Heppell, Barlow, Malceski
    On the Chopping Block: With 161 grand in the bank I’ll be able to turn McKernan in to a a cheap r4 (doesn’t even need to be a playing ruck if griffin keeps his spot) then will turn Browne in to a premo defender.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: I got through the weekend with no injuries, so i can turn my last on field rookie in to a premo wooo. I think you can argue Smith and Malceski in my team are mid pricers by their average, so not a complete premo team, but it’s nice to have no rooks on field. Now i can concentrate on luxury trades

  • Team Name: Bendigo Brawler
    Round 19 Scores: 2315
    Studs: Rocky (C), Goldy, Boyd, Pendles, Selwood, Lewis, Swan, Dusty
    Duds: Malceski, Hamling, Parker, Lambert, Gray
    On the Chopping Block: Krakouer on to Reid, Clurey to Marsh, getting cash for next week.
    Overall Bye Ranking Change: +216 to 2319
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: did okay, pretty disappointed with parker.

  • Team name: The Beams Boys
    Round 19 Scores:2402
    Studs:Rocky (C), Jelwood, SMartin, Pendles, Swan, Lewis, Dusty, Boyd, Mundy
    Duds: McVeigh and Malceski (only players below 80 for me)
    On the Chopping Block: MALCESKI and Kreuz
    Overall Bye Ranking Change: +953 (3254)
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Buying in Ceski 3 weeks ago is going to haunt my sleep forever.

  • Team Name: Uptown Funkers(RDT)
    Round 19 Scores: 2296
    Studs: Rocky(C), Jelwood, Lewis, Goldy, Swan, Dusty, Goddard
    Duds: Yeo, Heppell, Parker, Barlow
    On the chopping block: only 2 trades left…
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: I finished 6th in the end and now I have to play the overall highest ranked player in our comp in the first final. Our league was a bit of a joke….

  • Team Name: AlreadyWon (Fantasy)
    Round 19 Scores: 2483
    Studs: Rocky(C), Goldy, Swanny, Greene, Goddard, Boyd, Mundy, Pendles, Lewis, Selwood, Dusty
    Duds: Parker, Barlow, Gray, Armo
    On the Chopping Block: Smith, Zaha
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: really happy with this leading into finals, puts me in the top 1k as well. Looking to make a double downgrade this week and bring in some guns.

  • Is it worth fielding A. Pearce to get Goldy for Kreuzer?

  • Team Name: WhackyWavingInflatableArmFlailingTubeMen
    Round 19 Scores: 2360
    Studs: Mundy, Boyd, Rocky (C), Jelwood, Green, Goldy, Swan,
    Duds: Hodge (poor by his standards), McVeigh, Yeo, Bennell
    On the Chopping Block: Campbell, Yeo
    Ranking Change: Moved up 516 spots to 2706
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: I had high hopes for my prized recruits in McVeigh and Bennel. I will be keeping faith for the first week of finals.

  • I had all three 155-scores in my RDT side. Ended up with 2440. Sadly, in one of my leagues, I didn’t make the final eight

  • Get rid of Smith or Hesk? leaning towards Heski as Smith has a slightly better run home and Heski costs more

    • Smith has the more achievable break even, averages better over the last 3 and last 5 rounds, so I’d keep Smith. If you have rookies left on your field i’d upgrade them first. If Smith and Malceski are your weakest players on field, then nice job on your team! :)

  • Lachie Neale was my captain for the 5th time this year this round and he didn’t let me down. Every round he has had the C he has scored 100+. :D

    p.s. I know Rocky scored better, but pls don’t hate on my parade. :P

  • Team Name: King of Australia
    Round 19 Scores: 2261

    On the Chopping Block: Everitt, Yeo, Dawson, even Parks
    Overall Bye Ranking Change: idk went up I guess
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Pretty happy, got 88k banked so I’ll probs downgrade Krak on fwd bench and bring in A mid premo

    Studs:Swan, Goldy
    Duds: McVeigh, Parker
    On the Chopping Block: Parker
    Ranking Change: not enough to even contend for anything
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: guy took a dive so his son could make finals…in a high $$ private league so have nothing to play for since not playing in the top 8

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Finished on top of my league ladder with a 15/0 record so pretty stoked with not dropping a single head to head match all year,, although i play a guy this week who is ranked 673 overall .. may be my first loss :(.. only beat him by 2 pts earlier

  • On the chopping block: yeo, ARMITAGE, Parker??

  • Not happy with the couple of people that had Nic Nat as a dud…… Had he played and scored 50 fair enough but the only dud around here is you for not having adequate cover. I realise it hurt your team but don’t blame him.
