  • Team Name: UP AND GOING
    Round 12 Scores: 2061
    How many playing: 22
    League Results: WWW
    Duds: Steele, Adams, Gw, Hall, M Crouch
    On the Chopping Block: Z Jones, Myers
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: 2nd highest in my main league

  • Team Name: KangaHackz
    Round 12 Scores: 2003
    How many playing: 21
    League Results: W
    Studs: Newnes, Laird, Marchbank, Titch, JPK, S.Martin, B.Grundy, Heeney, Macrae Barratt, Beech
    Duds: Adams, Myers, Cousins, Greenwood, Burton
    On the Chopping Block: Myers, Preuss (if not named), Burton (R13 bye heavy)
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Think 2003, is about par this week but not sure, did okay, biggest issue is to either hld or trade burton? Fattned up but reliable like M’bank

  • Captaining Rocky cost me the game.

    • Same, along with Adams getting ~40 points lower than his average. I only lost by 15

      • Ouch. You had it worse than me then.

      • haha, got pittard in and I captained adams this week

        • Is that afl fantasy or dream team?

        • I don’t understand Adams’ bad score. This type of game is made for him. Close contest. Would have expected at least 10 tackles from him easily.

          • Watch a Collingwood game and you’ll get your answer.
            Distinct role change with the injury curse at the Pies.
            Need some grunt in the forward 50 and he’s pushing forward into that role for large chunks of each qtr !

  • Team Name: Fyfe for Fighting
    Round 12 Scores: 1979 at this stage
    How many playing: 20
    League Results: N/A
    Studs: Grundy, Zerrett, Titch, Newnes
    Duds: Pittard (got him in 3 weeks ago…), Z Jones, Steele, Cousins
    On the Chopping Block: R13 bye rookies and dead wood, Lloyd, Greenwood
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Guessing that is slightly under par with my rank going from 161 to 166. Maybe D. Lloyd to Buzza, Pittard/Z.Jones/Marchbank to J. Lloyd and the last trade a non R13 bye rookie so I can start the bankroll to get the Doctor

    • Oh and Barrett obviously stud

    • Feeling your Pittard pain brother.. did the same got him in with an avg of 90+ and in the last 3 weeks he has scored a total of 174 … so much for helping with my bye structure … going to trade him and happy to cop a donut just to get rid of him :(

      • Rage Trade 101. You won’t be doing that, at least this week anyway !

        • Hehe… I’ve gone Pittard to Ryan to free up cash for Hannan –> Buddy and Sandi –> Stef. Felt gooooooood, yeah baby

    • I’m looking good for next week. See ya.

    • Struggled hard this week but shaping up pretty good next week too. Should field 20/21 and don’t have many of the usual premo’s missing. 1780 dropped from 267 to 860 in ranking. Had 6 blokes under 60. And half of them were blokes capable of 100’s! Piss week! Pointing the finger at you z.jones. Lift or your done!

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: pretty happy with how my team is turning out
    Looking at Beams and Heeney this week with hopefully a cash cow

  • anyone considering trading burton this round? or is he good to keep?

    • Yeh I’m considering it, but I’ve also got Taranto, so it’s a toss up between those two. Depends who I can get to by trading either of those. Looking at someone < 540k if trade out Taranto, or < 630k for burton. Thoughts and suggestions?

  • 1987, I think. It’s hard to tell the way the website continually changes.
    It keeps giving me the league game from last week.

    • i encountered that problem… i think what i did to check is view league fixtures then individual matchups

  • 465 from my 2 rucks… Unprecedented!!
