    Round 9 Score: 1907
    League Results: LLLWL
    Eliminator Status: Slayed by this disgusting score
    DT Studs: Sidebottom, Lids, Martin, Zorko and that is all
    DT Duds: CLOKE, Lake, Hargrave, Khunt, Thompson, Danger, Pendles, Horsely
    On the Chopping Block: No one
    Trades this week: none
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: I switched Bower out for Khunt because he was dropped. Then effing Ratten brings him in late and he scores 28 more than Khunt. Already hated Ratten, now I wouldn’t piss on him if he was on fire.

    Traded Lake in for Golby two weeks ago. SInce then Golby is averaging 99, Lake is averaging 79.

    Stupid game.

    DT Studs: Delidio, Waters, Ablett, Selwood, Barlow, Zorko (Bench), Giles, Stephenson (Bench), Sidebottom, Chapman, Martin, Treloar and why not, Franklin

    DT Duds: Hargrave, Heppell (Bench), Porplyzia

    On the Chopping Block: Ellis, Porplyzia, D. Smith, Coniglio

    Trades this week: nothing worth trading down to this round

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Chopping Block players will remain in the team until bye rounds, they are thanking their lucky stars I’m playing rationally and patiently this year. Happy to save the trades for when I need em. Besides I need Ellis to retun back above $200k so he’s ripe again but the others are ready.

    whats every1 thinking of gibbs think he can maintain 105+ the rest of season nowthat murphy is out. going to use as an upgrade from magner. speaking of magner i watched the game yesterday and he got quite a bit of possesion or is it whenever i look up from my laptop t look at the tele i see him with the ball? or did he give 8 free kicks away like buddy earlier in the year?
