  • Joel starts slowly but finishes kaboow.

  • Team Name: The Torpedo Punters
    Round 1 Scores: 2000
    Studs: Sheridan, Dea, Dangerfield, Ablett, Treloar, Hall, Kerridge, Wells.
    Duds: Harwood, Hannerbery (C), S.Martin, Gawn, D.Martin, Barlow, McDonald-Tip.
    On the Chopping Block: Harwood and McDonald-Tip
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: 2000 on the dot. Was yelling at the TV at Danger to get more touches, even though he had 43. At least I have reached the 2000 club. Rage trades will be Mcdonald-Tip to Papley and Harwood to Weitering.

  • Anyone know how serious robbos calf injury is?

  • I don’t have Houli, so am offering an unbiased opinion.

    I have seen him mentioned numerous times here as a dud.

    He scored 78 and had an average of roughly 87 last year. Sure he didn’t make that but he was a significant underperformer.

    All of you who expect him to get 100 every week need to reassess your expectation.

    Trade talk suggests if a player has one bad week they should be traded (especially premiums).


    • An average of 87 is pretty good for a defender. Houli will consistently get 75-90 every week and have a few big games throughout the year to push the average up. Its pretty much what he’s done for his whole career so far.

  • Team Name: Wymo’s Heroes
    Round 1 Scores: 1960
    League Results: W/W/W/W (considering myself very lucky)
    Studs: Shaw,Ablett,Neale,Hunter,Hall
    Duds: S.Martin,Gawn,Harwood,Hannebery,Cutler,Robinson
    On the Chopping Block: Still fairly happy with team. Might have to ditch Robbo.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Really should have been 2100 quite easily but my Brisbane players decided to spud it up and/or get injured. Cheers!

  • Team Name: FevsBingles
    Round 1 Scores: 1991
    League Results:
    Studs: Ablett (C), Viney, Macrae, Shaw, Hall, Rockliff, Duncan, Kerridge, Wells
    Duds: S Martin, Gawn, Harwood, Cutler, Robinson, Mills, Gresham, HOWE (I know it isn’t your fault)
    On The Chopping Block: Robinson to S Gray, Gresham to Hewett
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Took out Weitering 10 minutes before the Carlton vs Richmond game and put Howe in, even though there were whispers he wasn’t going to get a game, also took out S Gray and put in Robinson.
    Golden Stubby: Gary Ablett!

  • 2122 if you had simply saved a lot of time and just ripped off The Traders side from last week. 9x100s 3x90s 3x80s.

  • Team Name: The Western Starz

  • Round 1 Score: 2027

    Studs: Ablett, Danger, Titchell, Sheridan, Hall, T. Mackenzie, Wells, Kerridge
    Duds: Robinson, S Martin, Mills, Gresham, Luenberger, Gault
    Chopping Block: Robinson
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Traded in B Crouch for Zaharakis as a last second trade but overall not too much to complain about. Trading Robinson to S Gray and I’ll have to wait on teams for the other trade.

  • Same question on Mitch Robinson how bad is calf?

  • Surely wit Hodge out Howe will get gig this week? THOUGHTS – noting they lost

  • Thanks to the website I now have to start again and because I started my league everyone that is in it will also have to start again, thanks allot!

    Studs: Yeo, Lonergan, Dea, T.Mitchell, Dangerfield, Kerridge, S.Gray, Hall, Wells
    Duds: S.Martin, McDonald-Tip, Gawn, Selwood, Oliver, Selwood, Houli
    On the Chopping Block: Selwood and Gawn
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Really happy with Oliver and Mills’ first half, but they then died down and scored only around 10 points each in the second half. Also took out JJK for Selwood at the last minute and I was fuming after the Eagles game.
