  • I want to cry

    • I am crying.
      I ran out of bourbon and it’s the only thing that will fix this.
      Round 5 and signing off till next year.

  • Merrett will come good (maybe not this game, but eventually) but along with tom mitchell it shows why should never pay top dollar for someone in fantasy

    I look forward to picking him up for 500K again in a few weeks

    • I picked Zerrett up for 420k.
      Unfortunately I put the C on him.
      I must apologise to everyone for the jinx as I have not had a captain ton up this year :(

      • Same here, I’m currently hoping he can at least get to 50 so I get a ton at this stage.. Worrying. But he’ll bounce back

    • I’m looking at bringing in Barlow nice and cheaply next week. Fyfe out for 10 means he will be somewhat closer to his 2014 self.

      • Haha I had the same thoughts lachie, thinking he’ll get more time in the mid now

  • for Fyfe Sake was looking for a bigun with the C won’t get near 1900 Primo trade time AGAIN

  • Surely Fantasia will pick up either Midfield or Forward. He hasn’t been near the defensive 50 all day.

  • Was 1800 with Merrett (c) and Dea to play thinking im a sniff of 2100 now i’ll be lucky if i get 2000

  • I knew it, should of picked Papley as captain

  • Another loser in the rookie lottery!! Got about an extra 70pts on bench with Hartley still got a qtr to go!! Coulda been 2100+!!

  • I was looking at 2200 if Merrett decided to play today, but alas, approx 2050 is all I’m good for now. I was really looking forward to climbing up the ladder. At least Shaw, Neale, Wines, Gawn, Kent, Kerridge, Danger and Hanners all made the ton.

  • Need 4 more pts from Tippa and Dea to crack the 2100….will be barracking loudly.

    • Mistaken, actually needed 14 at the time, then on Dea’s adjusted stats at the end would have been 18. Finished with 2086. So easy to get carried away in Fantasy.

  • And THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is why you don’t pay 590k for a 3rd year player in the worst team in the competition.

    Lol @ the kneejerkers
