FMDT: Round 3 Review

FMDT! With a lot of things going wrong, Round 3 was a headache for a lot of coaches. From those with Scott Pendlebury as Captain to those with Fyfe, Leuenberger injured early in their games to those without Gary Ablett as their captain to those sweating on Goodes and Lake at the tribunal… oh and to those who traded out Greg ‘109’ Broughton!

Before you start preparing for next week, it’s time to review your squad’s effort this weekend in the DT TALK Round Review. Every Sunday night when the last game finishes, jump on here and let the world know how you went!

Copy and paste the following in the comments and fill it in.

      Don’t sideways.

      Wait a round or 2 to downgrade some rookies and bring him in.

    Team Name: Gomzy’s Champs
    Round 3 Score: 2080
    League Results: WWWWW
    DT Studs: Garry Ablett (Absolute gun), Matthew Boyd, Mitch Robinson, Goddard, Lids,
    DT Duds: Sloane, Martin, Redden
    On the Chopping Block: Possibly Redden
    Round 3 trades: Redden to another Premo mid

    At the beginning of the week was thinking about how terrible my score was already looking and how much I was going to drop in rankings, ended up going from about the mid teens to 6000 :)

    Spewing about Fyfe, although not in my DT which is great but the fact that it will damage Fremantles success this year.

    So pissed off with an under performing midfield this week scoring a miserable 534.. (excluding Abletts additional 162)

    Wanting to possibly side trade Redden to another premo mid who has started well in terms of scoring, will wait until after the GC game this weekend and go from there, looking to pick up my main man Michael Barlow in about 1-2 weeks time when hes price drops further. Like mentioned on one of the previous articles maybe an ideal time to pick him up would be against the Suns?

    Sorry for the rambling, needed to vent. (:

    Team Name: GLC
    Round 3 Score: 1907
    League Results: LLWLL
    DT Studs: Garry Ablett.. NUFF SAID.. Also Robinson is just about the only other one
    DT Duds: Whole team minus Gablett, Robinson, Goddard, Delidio and rookies.. ESPECIALLY Shaw, Pendelbury, Rockliff, McEvoy, Zaharakis, Martin, poor Fyfe AND ME FOR TRADING OUT TROLLBY FOR JHONSON WHO THEN GETS 36 WHILE TROLLBY GETS A HALF DESCENT SCORE. FMDT
    On the Chopping Block: Fyfe, Shaw, McEvoy, Rockliff
    Round 3 trades: Fyfe to probably Whitecross and havent figured anything else out yet
    Worst score I have had in over two years, I can’t remember the last time I did this poorly. Whole team did shit except a couple of guys and my year is basically over. Worst of all I now owe my 50+ year old father $50 as I made a bet with him that he would not beat my score once this year (He is crap), and he beat me by 10 points this week.. FMDT

    Goddard –
    Suckling –
    Deledio –
    Buddy –
    Jelwood –
    Sidebumma –
    Sheil (scraped throughg enough with enough to justify my loyalty) –
    Giles (sidue to the confidence in hm unrepaid when deciding on bringing in Kruezer pre-lockout)mply

    DT Duds:
    Magner (unfair, but damaged my mids nonetheless) –
    Fyfe –
    Cornes( simply due to his high risk induction being slightly underwhelming) –
    Giles (due to the confidence in hm unrepaid when deciding on bringing in Kruezer pre-lockout)

    On the Chopping Block: Fyfe :'(

    Round 3 trades:
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Mids killed me, Fyfes injury cost the Minge the four points, losing patience fast with Selwood pulling 100’s when my smokies are mathcing, if not bettering his current average – Im looking at you Ward and Ziebell
