    Duds: DBJ, Collins, Tucker
    On the Chopping Block: DBJ, Wingard, Wagner
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Solid week for me despite envying those who held Barlow!

    Round 13 Scores: 2009 (AF)
    How many players: 21 (20, with Dea late out)
    Studs: Zorko, Rocky (c), Trengove, Bartel, Stef Martin, Gawn, Suckling
    Duds: Stewart, Harwood, Sam Reid
    On the Chopping Block: Libba, Dea, Currie
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: The real byes for me start next week!

    • Got exactly the same score (with different players obviously)
      How many will you be fielding next week?

  • Team Name: Bengal Tigers
    Round 13 Scores: 2056
    How many players: 21
    Studs: Barlow, M.Robbo, Gawn, Martin, Suckers, Rocky, Danger, Titch, Ruggles
    Duds: Reid, Collins, Harwood
    On the Chopping Block: Harwood, Dea, Collins
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: first late out of the year with Dea, have Ruggles as an emergency. <3 <3 <3

  • Team Name: Supersquids
    Round 13 Scores: 1876
    How many players: 19
    Studs: Shaw, Suckling, Danger, Mitchell, Rocky (c), Gawn, Martin, Merrett, Zorko all over 100.
    Duds: Robbie Gray, Tucker
    On the Chopping Block: Dea + Walla (Harwood if out)
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Dea as a late out would have hurt, as it would’ve counted Harwood’s score, however, I had Ruggles on the bench!

  • Team Name: I’m Not a Rapper
    Round 13 Scores: 1755 (AF)
    How many players: 20 (had 21 but Dea was LW)
    Studs: Shaw, Suckling, Danger, Titch, Neale, Barlow
    Duds: Goldy, Walters, lots of rooks with 50s and 60s
    On the Chopping Block: M.Adams, Hopper, Harwood
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Pretty bad considering I had 20 players, just had too many rooks not scoring well enough, probably my own fault though

    • 17 played for 1780pts. Dea out almost cost me a match up as my opponent also had him but had cover on the bench. Jeeeez… Close one. Fell to 1600 overall. A lot of almost full teams this week. Catch up week coming up!!

  • Round 13 Scores: 2136
    How many players:20
    Studs: Shaw, Hanley, Trengove, Vince, Titch, Rocky(C), Lewis, Gawn, Steph, Merrett, Barlow.
    Duds:Hanners, Hunter, Scully, Stewart, Reid.
    On the Chopping Block: Wagner
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: 2042 if you take away my two lowest (stewart +reid) Went from 600 into 220 overall. Good bye structure and am looking good.

  • Team Name: Crowboys
    Round 13 Scores: 1987
    How many players: 18 (17 with dea out)
    Studs: Danger, Rocky (C), Stef, Zorko, Titch, Shaw, Mcveigh, Gawn, Selwood, Mills
    Duds: Dea, Collins emerg
    On the Chopping Block: Dea
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: I had all 8 defenders playing, but Dea fielded. I chucked the E on collins instead of ruggles which screwed my hopes of reaching 2000. I still moved up to 750 in rankings from 1300 with only 18 players so I’m happy.

  • Team Name: true beavers
    Round 13 Scores: 1846
    How many players: 18
    Studs: robinson gawn parker rocky
    Duds: dunkley
    On the Chopping Block: dunkley
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: reasonable score – 2nd highest in my league. But of course I was against the highest on 1883 so will go backwards, but continuing to bring out the best in others. Most likely I will go from 12th to 14th on our ladder even though I have the highest scoring team overall in my league. And that’s why this game shits me.

  • Team Name: Ravalle
    Round 13 Scores: 1806 (AF)
    How many players: 19 – Byrne Jones (41) not counted.
    Studs:Shaw, Vince, Parker, Rocky(c), Lewis, Gawn, Merrett
    Duds: Byrne-Jones, Collins, Robbie Gray
    On the Chopping Block: Byrne Jones…
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Considering was expecting this to be by far my worst round of the byes I am not too unhappy…Dropped 324 spots to 1742 overall….Brought in Robbie Gray this week…expecting more than 76 in future!! Quite a few premos slightly down this week with quite a few 90s….Other than that cant complain..2 round 13 bye rookies to be traded this week…should have 22 playing next two rounds…

  • Team Name: Dusty’s Warriors
    Round 13 Scores: 1973 (moved up 5716 places to 14255)
    How many players: 21
    Studs: Danger (c), Barlow, Rocky, Gawn, T Mitchell, Coniglio, Neale, Merrett, Duncan & a special mention to Mills & Ruggles
    Duds: Harwood, Dunkley, Walters, Adams & Lycett for stupidity
    On the Chopping Block: Harwood, Walters or Dunkley
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Hard to phantom that a few weeks ago was struggling to score 1700 with 22 players yet get nearly 2000 from 18 – go figure.

  • Team Name: Tapdog’s Dees
    Round 13 Scores: 2056
    How many players: 20
    Studs:Shaw, vince, Bartel, Danger, Titch, Lewis, Rocky, Bont, Gawn, Merret, Barlow, Wells
    Duds: Frost, Collins, Reid
    On the Chopping Block: ??? Only upgrades
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Ruggles, Mills, Zaha all close to tonning up. Can’t really complain. Moved up over 3,700 spots to 4343:) Hoping to come out of the byes strong and win my leagues:)

    Duds: R.Gray
    On the Chopping Block: Harwood and Wagner in a down-up manoeuvre, which will hopefully get me Laird and a rookie.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Deliberately traded in a Round 13 bye player (Trent McKenzie, who I’m crossing my fingers over, but he looks a solid pick to improve scoring and price), to help my overall bye structure, so hopefully I’ll also be making ground in the next two weeks. Got a pretty par score, so take the ranking increase, and move on.
