‘Par’ – Round 12

This is based on the scores from the teams who are ranked in the top 5k overall and averaged out. We thought this gives the best indication of the ‘better’ teams so we can all gage our weekly efforts based on theirs.

This is based on the scores from the teams who are ranked in the top 5k overall and averaged out. We thought this gives the best indication of the ‘better’ teams so we can all gage our weekly efforts based on theirs. We think this number is about right… therfore ‘par’ for each round and will be posted here in DT TALK shortly after each round (thanks to Virtual Sports). There’s no point averaging the top 25k or everyone in the competition as some of these guys would probably forget to do their teams. So the top 5k average is the mark.

If you don’t think this is a fair indication, then ppffthhh. Take it for what it is.

For those who play that other silly game: The SuperCoach ‘PAR’ was 1968

    9 shots under par.

    If this was golf I would be stoked! haha but still pretty happy . Would have cracked 1900 (probably) if Hargrave played!!! But I guess this would be true for most people

      It depends on where you were ranked. On average, people in the top 5000 last week will go up or down depending on how much higher or lower you scored from 1833.

    Calm people – 1,833 would have given a rise to everyone outside the top 200 this round.

    The maintain level scores were:
    – 1839 to stay at 100 position,
    – 1822 to stay at 200 position.

    This ‘par’ is weighted towards the top end because the scores aren’t a uniform distribution even in the top 5000, they have a very long leading front.

    Would have been fuck knows how much ahead if Hargrave didn’t rape me.

    The 48 I missed from Big O thanks to a boozy Friday afternoon has cost me a spot in the top 250 :/

    I must be the only one who likes the way the bye rounds are this year compared to last years set up.
    & no it is not that I scored well but it it easier than having 2/3 teams a week having a bye over different weeks, i.e, a team having a bye then 4/9 weeks later having another.
    If next year every team has 2 bye’s with LTI’s how long will 24 trades last?
    Just look @ players going down so far this year, Carrazzo, Goodes, Fyfe, Gibblett, Hmack to name 5.
    I like the way this years MBR are with 24 trades, If it changes next year will need more trades or it will have more of a negative effect on DTmers as they will have more donuts & lose a bit more interest over the season compared this years MBR’s.

        I like the multibyes this year – makes it much more strategic on how you build your team to try and win those bye round games.
        Among all the peeps in my leagues, most are down to 5 to 8 trades now – it’s gonna be carnage when more injuries arrive!

    Went back 100 spots with 1777 had plenty of ultra premos on the bench, now sitting 303. Interestingly I jumped 450 spots in that other silly game in which I pretty much just take the piss and am now ranked 228, weird! MBRs have killed my shot at the car… oh well its a game of luck in the end of the day

    Thoughts on my team? All ideas, criticism etc all welcome
    $381,800 Left Over

    Lids, Goddard, Adcock, Enright, Clarke, Dempsey, Sam Shaw (Darley & Townsend)

    Swan, Pendlebury, Boyd, Mitchell, Ablett (Sexton & Williams)

    Cox, Giles (Stephenson & Redden)

    Johnson, Dangerfield, Franklin, Cloke, Martin, Zorko, Treloar (Pfieller & Devon Smith)

    Going to go Pfieller to Robinson next week and Sam Shaw to Carrazzo in 2 weeks then my team will be set I think. Pretty sure unless somebody come up with a better idea

    I’m hating the bye rounds, having a shocker with 200 below par each week.
    My teams finally set now and I punched some numbers based on all players lows, highs and average.
    I discovered my team has a range of 1280-3025 and now has an average of 2099.49
    This will have to be it for me as I have only two trades remaining.
    Just gotto avoid LTI’s and I’m sweet.

        Literally thought he would get about 50 as he wasn’t in great form and it was wet as hell in Perth on Thurs.

        Now I can only get 2 out of Beams, Ablett and Carazzo without doing another downgrade.

    Scored a 1901 and went up 94 places to 166, was thinking that i’d just hold or go down rather than go up a significant amount.

    I’m upgrading Bugg in r14, cash is not a factor, who would be best out of Shaw, Suckling, Broughton or Carrots.. I think Carrots due to his active role in the Carlton midfield…

        Swan, Stevie J, Carrots and Hepp/Fisher… if u want slightly cheaper defender. Fish will avg and be more consistant than Gravy not to mention unique.

        So that is Thompson and Carazzo vs. Swan and Hargrave – why type the other guys on both sides?

        The answer is Swan and Carazzo.
