  • stef martin cap x

  • Usually the scores in fantasy and super coach are pretty much close to being the same, but occasionally you get something like this: O’Meara: fantasy (78) super coach (45). Huh?

    • Different way of calculating scores obviously. O’Meara had shit effective disposals (46% I believe), which affected his SC score.

      • Pity fantasy doesn’t have the same captaincy options like SC does.
        I’d be having a good round if not for Tich.

  • Merrett getting tagged heavily today, keefe looking shit and jpk had a shocker = f*** off shags you know sweet piss all about fantasy

  • E v C
    The Essendon stats are underwhelming and the Blues are making a charge.
    bad bad bad

  • Goddard – lol!

  • So presumably you are saying you followed his advice so therefore know less?

  • Into every fantasy RD a little disappointment must fall.

  • Lowest score so far by a long way: the pig, Tich.

  • Is Ed Curnow the real deal

  • Mutch is not much good. Glad I avoided him.

    • He’s a rookie. He’s scored a 71 and a 66 to go with his 43 today. Hardly bad by rookie standards?

      Do you people only consider a player’s most recent score or what?

      • Mr Burns

        On these forums, pretty much. I remember everyone talking of trading Treloar after his score of 84…

      • No, I’ve picked my rookies pretty well. You can’t take them all, and I’m glad with the ones I passed on.

  • Oink oink, he’s back!

  • Gibbs is trash

  • Stef already up to 25 hitouts early in the second

  • Mr Burns

    God damn Toby Mclean. Really taking the shine of Captain Macrae.

  • Ed Philips or Brayden Ainsworth?

  • McRae is so good to watch when you have captained him. I’m in love

  • Is naughty naughton getting tagged????

  • Naughton rolled an ankle in the first quarter.

    • I’m expecting half of my team to go down with smallpox next weekend. That’s the only way things could get worse.

  • Ed Curnow… posts an awesome score, bur will miss at least a week for touching an umpire… moron.

  • Glad I didn’t captain Titch, however I still expected a bit more from Stef

  • Glad I Captained macrae. Good one I traded omeara for E Phillips. Bargain @170k. Richo said he was one of the clubs form players. Bugger I didn’t field thou lol. Next week.

  • I got Phillips as well. Will be fielding next week. Now to wait as people jump on that train lol. I also read what richo said about him. I traded bandfield to him.

  • Fooz

    For the record, the game between Freo and Saints was one of the worst games I’ve ever seen

  • Wow. I’ve shot nearly into top 500. Making huge ground on the comp. Gone up nearly 41,500 spots since round 1.

    I’m 1960 with treloar and Murray left.
    Be nice if I can hold top 1000 by tomoz night.

    Roll on tomoz night. I’ve got a wad of cash and bottomed out premos to buy lol.

  • I’m not bloody surprised titan. Your advice is either spot on or around the mark. I’ve taken a few things you said. Only one didn’t work that well but is not bad. It was getting crouch in 2 weeks ago (still got 106,97). But I traded Jacob’s to stef (heaps told me not to). Got taranto in 5 weeks ago, got macrae in after the dockers game. I took your advice on trading E Phillips in this week. Most importantly having macrae captain the last 3 weeks. It doesn’t really surprise me your rocketing through the rankings. I’m upto 3,000 now. So I’m content lol. I’m 2033 with Murray left. with So I guess a cheers is in order mate.

  • No worries mate. Happy to help. Wish I had of bloody fielded Phillips though lol. I had Mutch instead. Bit risky to have 1st gamer as starter. But he looks good…..Haha Yer the crouch situation didn’t go to plan. Although not terrible. But could of been alot better. Good score. Looks a hard round.

  • Calvin had a stat during the week about how if you’d captained Macrae over Titch the past few weeks you’d be 91 ahead. If you did it this week you can add nearly a hunj to that!

  • After watching the game live last night – Billings is my first trade after lockout. Patience has gone and he doesn’t look anything like a footballer. Hello Devon Smith

    • stop on I have billing and smith Billing going. I have a shit score although I had 8 score over a 100 I have 1850 with Kelly to play spewing

  • How did Brendan Ah Chee look? Scored alright and thinking of getting him in this week, but don’t know what his job security is like?

    • 62% time on ground probably suggests that if he continues playing similar TOG next week or 2 as they ease him back into things, he probably won’t score as well as 95

  • Worse bit for curnow owners. He gets a week but also round 12 bye.

  • Is Ronke worth the money? Figure that he will be 300k.

    • I’m guessing he’ll be under 290K – probably around 280-285K. But lets say he’s 300K – it’s less then the starting price of Christensen, which most people didn’t have an issue bringing in as a higher priced cash cow at the start of the year.

      • I guess it’s in relation to Ainsworth and E Phillips being substantially cheaper.

        • Will probably be around 300k but his breakeven will be crazy low. I would only get him if you’re fielding him. Could make another 150-200k and hasn’t done much wrong yet either.

          Really just depends on your setup as well, personally I wouldn’t sideways from a 360k rookie to a rookie 300k rookie.

  • My midfield might as well have not played this week. Titch captain, pendles late out replaced by mutch 43, Cripps, Parker, dusty, zerret, banfield and Kelly still to play. Absolute bullcrap

    • Yeah, agree regret not trading out Dusty 2 weeks ago, or last week. Probably will regret it again next week when I again fail to do the trade.

  • Not watching the game – is Dusty injured or is Jacobs tagging the crap out of him?

    • Definitely not injured.

      Likely a tag, but don’t know the extent of the tag. He seems to be scoring in short bursts, when he does extend his score – probably a result of occasional one-two handballs. He’s just not red hot at the moment. Last week he gave up a few goals to others he could have scored him self.

  • Coming into this game I had 15pts and dusty my OPPO and has cunico. Don’t think i am going to make it.

  • Dusty – easily my worst premo selection this year. Just don’t know what to do with him.

    • My Josh Kelly, Merrett, Dusty, Lyons and Billings picks have f**ked my season (if you can count Billings as a premo. smh)
