    Round 5 Scores:
    League Results: Win
    Studs: rocky, hampton, nank, steele, bont, touhy
    Duds: WHE, swallow, SPP, touk, johanissen, fyfe, kelly
    On the Chopping Block: SPP, touk
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: 5-0 to start the season. nothing better

  • Team Name: Bring The3 Pain
    Round 5 Scores: 2328
    League Results: WWWW
    Studs: Laird, Tuohy, Hampton, Otten, Danger, Rocky, Treloar, Beams, Dahlhaus, Martin, Steele, ANB, Nank
    Duds: Vivkers, Swallow, Riewoldt, WHE
    On the Chopping Block: WHE and maybe Swallow
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Jumped to 585 ranking from a bit out of 9,000. Nothing too bad to really say except for WHE poor first half. Watson made up for last week as well. Vickers had a decent rookie score so can’t complain. Adelaide boys really came through:)

    • lol, refresh to 613 and score of 2331:)

      • 613
        Harris’ Hero’s
        L Harris 10897 2274 2,179.4 12,675,000

        That is the details of ranking 613

        Seems different to Bring The3 Pain

    • I find it hard to believe u jumped that many placing with that score, when i got 2258 and jumped from 3570 to 2739. It would mean the difference between 9000 and 3750 was less than 70 points

  • Team Name: Lawyers Guns and Money
    Round 5 Scores: 2303
    League Results: WWWWW
    Studs: Zorko, Martin, Nank, Hampton, Beams, Rocky, T.Mitchell, Steele, Otten, ANB
    Duds: Fyfe, WHE (maybe harsh for a rook but still)
    On the Chopping Block: WHE, Roughy
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Took Zorks over Treloar to start the year. Been a win (just) but time to get Trel in now. Will upgrade Rough or WHE to him via DPP.

  • Team Name: Bruce’s Amigos
    Round 5 Scores: 2223
    League Results: LWW
    Studs: Treloar, Dahlhaus, Beams, Martin
    Duds: Spencer, Adams, Miller, SPP
    On the Chopping Block: SPP, Spencer
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Giving the C to Adams over Treloar…. ouch. Dropped 2400 in the rankings to 4400

  • Team Name: Taezers
    Round 5 Scores: 2358
    League Results: Wins
    Studs: Merrett, Rocky, Hampton, Otten, Treloar, Beams, Stef, Nank, Dahl, Titch, Laird, Danger
    Duds: Roughy, Fisher
    On the Chopping Block: Roughy
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Moved into top 20 (ranking still going up, but 17th last check), have a little bit of cash and might be able to upgrade Roughy to a fallen premo, or double downgrade to make some cash.

    • nice:)

    • Rank settled at 16th overall and just traded Roughy to Kade Simpson.

      Now just need a bit of luck and Newman, Preuss, Barrett & Balic all get games!

      • We all need that luck mate.

      • 16
        T Phillips 11109 2355 2,221.8 12,817,000

        Great work mate. Seems there is alot of people here wishing they had your team. Great work.

        • Cheers, I’ll share my secret with everyone… Guns and rookies.

          I picked who I thought were going to be the top players in every position at the start of the year regardless of price (Adams & Laird down back, Rocky, Danger, Merrett, Titch, Treloar, Beams in mid, Stef & Grundy in Ruck and Macrae & Dahl up Fwd.

          Nearly everyone else were rookies and the the only mid pricers we JOM, Roughy & Nank. Two of them are gone now and Nank will be after the byes because I need his FWD/Ruck cover.

          I’m only going to trade in players I think will be top 6-8 in their position, otherwise I double downgrade or sideways rookies.

          Mid Pricers almost always just give you headaches, even when you think they’re ‘Roses’ such as Swallow, JOM, Rough etc.

  • Team Name: know eye dear

    • As soon as I seen the rain I knew Hoski was in trouble. His game is based on his marks.even started to check near the end of the last quarter to see if he was a late out.

      BOYZ, Whats the crack with all you guys? :(

  • All was going well until Monday night. I was equal points with my opponent, I had ANB, Spencer, WHE and Adams vs Nank and Treloar. And I lost.

    The two trades I made this week were a total mare as well: Spencer and Nroo combined for 100 points. Shocking.

    Scored 2155 but it’s been the worst week for me so far with what could’ve been.

  • 2395 :)

  • Brad Crouch? Yes or No

    • Nah, go for a bona fide top 8 mid. They’re $100k more, but no hassles. If you can’t afford them, downgrade and make more cash while there are good rookies.

  • I am a proud Luke Shuey owner from round 1, don’t know whether he can be top 8 form is good though.

    Was staring down the barrel of a great score this week. Was on 1950 odd with Grundy, Pendles, Adams and WHE left before the game. Ended with 2235 due to all those guys well under performing. Ranked 3724. Our league (dt talk) must be up there with the strongest going around? I’m ranked around 300 in our league meaning we must hold a few positions in the top 2% range! Nice work everyone who’s up there at the moment. First year coach mistake maybe starting Pendles over Treloar Rd 1. He is on my chopping block this week anyone else think he may be carrying that Achilles from a while back or just poor form? . Good luck to everyone this week.

  • my score is 2316 in round 5 is quite good.

    currently sitting 33 overall team is Excalibur city

    my pick of treloar as captain this week really paid off.

    studs: Mitchell, Nank, Treloar,Laird, Otten, Hampton, Mitchell, M Crouch,Stef, Dal & Danger.

    Duds: Polsen & WHE.

    Thinking of trading WHE & Miles to A Black & R Gray (FWD)

    or M Hibbard (Nth) to EVW and upgrading Marchbark to Hodge

    Or Hibbard to EVW and Miles to Black which helps with structure and means i can play Black on field and Bench Polsen. or J Kennedy Harris

    and also means I can possible upgrade a ANB to Sloane, Selwood, Merrett, Zorko, Rockcliff for round 8 clash with Adelaide as he will only score about a 50 against them.

  • Team Name: Cheers Sweet & Thanks
    Round 5 Scores: 2129
