The knee-jerk is back for another year, this time in a slightly different format. We will be running Sunday evening just after the round has finished… when the juices of emotion are still fresh and our knee-jerk tendencies are exposed for all to see

This will be the last knee jerk for a while (Adzman is off traveling). Sorry this wasn’t posted when he sent it in, we were off having beers with Chopper for his engagement party. This is a classic edition of the Knee Jerk – especially for the trade stuff. Enjoy!

As a younger and somewhat slimmer Eddie McGuire would say at the start of every footy show; What-a-big-week-it-has-been-in-football! Well OK, it was a normal week; it just got big Friday at about 3pm when it was confirmed that Heateris a great DTer but an average thinker. I don’t actually mind him having a bet to be honest…but on Nick Maxwell to score a goal? First goal even?

My poor mate the mailman is desperately trying to conserve trades at the moment. Each Monday he says to me “I’m not trading this week”. I try and believe him and I actually think he believes it too, but then Friday rolls along and he comes out with the solid gold classic “Just one more and then I’m stopping”.

Last week’s trade addiction bombshell leads me onto the logical next DT issue. Everybody knows what makes DT fun. It’s trading! Wheeling and dealing, building a team of guns. It’s trying to find star players on the cheap and getting them into your team. But it begs the question- how can you keep it fun once you can’t trade anymore?

This weeks knee-jerk starts with a bombshell; I’ll never come out and say I’m the best DT’er there is, sure I’ve come in the top 300 the past few years but I’d expect no less for the amount of hours I put in. But there is one thing holding me back, one thing keeping me b-grade instead of elite. I’m addicted to trading.

All things were happy in my DT world; I’d been riding hard on the back of a green arrow thanks to a pair of 2200+’s and a pair of 2100+s. I’d slashed my ranking from a disappointing 10000 to a manageable 2000 and the team looked solid enough to continue its upward trajectory while the fly by nighters were going the other way.

A bit of a different knee-jerk this week. After what has been a torrid first half of the season I think its time to sit back on the rocking chair grab a beverage and reflect upon what has happened so far (I guess that is the complete opposite of a knee-jerk). So anyway who has starred? Who has bombed? Who has frustrated? Well its time to find out.

DT annoys me every time; if it was a girlfriend I’d have kicked her to the curb ages ago. It kind of reminds me of my golf game; I rock up to the first in front of the peanut gallery full of hope then slice my drive off into another postcode.

Welcome to the round 9 knee jerk. It comes this week at a time when my DT ship has finally righted itself after negotiating some stormy weather. I feel like Rocky Balboa in Moscow fighting Ivan Drago. I’ve taken all his punches in the middle rounds and I’m still standing. Now it’s my time to come out swinging, it’s Stallions time.
