  • DUNCAN AND BARTEL LOST ME MY PRELIM. Duncan has been my favourite player in my team this year. ever week gets the job done around 100 mark. I needed 40 points and he fked me over and bartel dont get me started.. i guess he decided not to play the second half.

    Couldnt even crack 2400 with stefan being the biggest culprit there

  • 2400 even

    Beat Mitch to square the ledger 1 all in 2016!

    Good Luck

  • Wanna upgrade Stef… Which ruck has the best remaining match ups, esp in round 23? Am thinking Grundy vs hawthorn? How do they go against ruckmen? Anyone know the weakest teams vs rucks?

  • Team Name: Lawnmowers
    Round 22 Scores:2429
    Finals Wk 2 Result: week off
    Studs:Rocky, parker, hanners, gawn, wines (7th 95+ score in a row), dusty, zorks, monty, dahl, vince,
    Duds: kerridge, steven, shaw, doch, goldy (didn’t watch much footy this w/e so dunno if any due to injury)
    On the Chopping Block: kerridge, see how the rest pull up
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: After a poor start to the year have managed to scrape to 5000… quite poor after finishing top 1k last year.

    Interesting thought: how many players do you still have from round 1? I have 9; Shaw, laird, danger, hanners, pendles, wines, gawn, dusty and kerridge

  • Name Mundy Mayniacs
    Score 2658
    Finals Week Off
    Studs Almost All
    Duds Everyone who supports the Eagles
    Chopping Block Whoever is rested next week
    Vent – I was chuffed with last weeks 12th highest weekly score.
    But I think I may be #1 this week. Don’t think I can claim the prize though.

  • Fantasy

    Started the round ranked 1665. Really want to finish inside top 1000 for the third year in a row.

    Scored 2412.

    Moved up 23 places.

    Going back to DT next year as just not getting rewarded for a good starting team.

    • I’m a bit behind you though close. My thinking is it’x better to be ranked 1640 in AF than 164 RDT.

      • Yeah definitely, but his point was there’s not enough reward for nailing a good starting squad.

        • I dunno I’m sitting 423 in fantasy and 79th in RDT, RDT i took a couple of “risks” I didnt in fantasy and it largely worked.

          SC i started with almost identical side to RDT and im only sitting 9k, but have have 2 weeks in top 200 and last week 324th, comes down to more than just starting side in all formats i reckon

  • Team Name: Spug
    Round 22 Scores: 2443
    Studs: Hodge, Laird, Vince, Rocky (C), Lewis, Martin, Zorko, Grundy, JPK
    Duds: Stef, Gibbs, Shaw
    On the Chopping Block: Yeo or Stef
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: My best score of all time!

  • I hate Tom Rockliff so much. (Disclaimer: I don’t actually hate him).

    I bought Tom Rockliff at the start of the year so he could be my “Go to” Captain.
    The two times I have had him as captain he has returned a score of 24 and 33. From this frustration I sold him and he was on my never again list, only to smash me ever since.

    This has been a pattern that has plagued me with Tom Rockliff ever since his breakout year.

    I also brought in Jack Stevens three weeks ago and have had him as captain only to return sub 70 scores each week.

    I have been completely undone by Captain scores this year.

    • No one should have Rocky on a never again list. Any player can go down with an injury – the guy is an absolute fantasy beast

      • +1. I didn’t put the (c) on rocky this week thinking he could put up one of those 70pt scores. Ouch! Z.merrett (c) still done well.

    • I had 6 STRAIGHT weeks my captain failed to reach 100 points.

      Good Luck

  • Best ruckman to get in ?
    Grundy or goldy??? Please help

  • Team Name: Keys for Success

    Duds: My whole defence (Doch, Simmo, Shaw, JJ, Howe, Pittard) & Membrey
    On the Chopping Block: Steven…maybe & trying to get Goldy for Grundy
    Massive props to one of my favourite players in the competition right now, Marcus Bontempelli. Had him since day dot. Scores of below 80 in all of his first 8 games, 7 of which were at Etihad, had me worried. But since then, he has been nothing but a machine. Had him captain this week over Danger and had paid off majorly.

    On the Chopping Block: naismith out for goldie. can’t afford grundy

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: up 90 spots to 351 overall. not bad considering this is first time i’ve played any version of DT since 2007. Back then i went 15-0 and made PF only to lose by 4 points due to 4 premiums being rested. Didn’t recover mentally until this year
