The Power is OUT (and that’s a good thing): Round 18 Discussion

It is Round 18 and we are without our Port Adelaide players. Hopefully this means that you are playing your best 22 this weekend. There could be a few high scores floating around with the Pies taking on the Suns and the Cats ready to smoke the Tigers. As the round progresses, chat about it in the comments or in the DT TALK Chat Room! Good luck!

Make sure all of your Port Adelaide players on your bench… errr… maybe make sure that Ben Jacobs isn’t one of your emergencies (oh and Matthew Lobbe too).

Your best 22 is hopefully fielded this weekend. With most teams only without a couple of players through injury, we could be in for the highest scoring round of the year as a lot of teams are now set too.

As the round progresses, let us know in the comments about all things relevant to DT. Who is smashing it, who is sucking, vent your frustrations, brag… whatever! Mix it in there with who the subs are for those who want to know (follow us on Twitter as we try to let you know that all weekend too).

When you post your score, if you captain has played, count him as two players. For example you might have 10 players to play for 1121 points, but if one of those was your captain, it is 1121/11. Just gives everyone a better idea of what people are averaging per player.

Anyway, let’s get to it!

Co-captain of DT Talk since we started this thing in 2007. Best finish was 13th in 2009... that was a long time ago. Follow on Twitter: @WarnieDT

    What’s Cadel classified as? Didn’t realise so many have him in their teams. Dead weight going into finals I would imagine. Sideways trade to Andrew Bogut maybe?

    Wait a minute, this is still DT Talk isn’t it?

    These ain’t my shoes?

    14/1669 just quietly and that’s without Cadel! Heading for 2484 apparently.

    Still can’t find Cadel. Forward, mid or back? Anyone?

          Amazingly Mzungu is outscoring both put together at quarter time. The faster the game goes with them not doing much, better for me.

          Predictor has my opponent by 2 points.

            Half time: Fyfe 28, Pav 22.
            Now have Mzungu + 76 vs those two, and its looking a bit better for me, especially since it looks like Pav is carrying an injury.
            Not so good for you though, Randomdent..

    I know it’s highly unlikely but with Pav only on 2 at quarter time, what percentage would you give Cox scoring 57 more points than Pav? 10%? Or am I being too optimistic?

      Cox should be good for a very big score with no Sandi against him. Griffin has already had a small scare. Still seems unlikely though.

      You should be alright. 61 alone would nearly be enough for a quarter vs Pav and Fyfe the way they’re playing so far this game. But considering the Gu is outscoring the both of them as well as the 61 points you have you should be well safe.

        Both have the potential to explode with a few goals at any time though, which is my only real worry. If Eagles can pull ahead I’ll be right.

        I expected a lot more from Cox to be honest, given no Sandi and Griffin subbed out early…

    Ended up with 2379. Can’t complain, however, was heading and hoping for a bit more until SJ pulled out leaving me with Prestia’s 67 and Isaac Smith being sub and getting 25 also hurt. Other than that only Sylvia, Lower and Birchall underperformed as they were the only others below 90.
