‘Par’ – Round 16

Here we go again… PAR for Round 16 is here. Did you reach it for this week? Get in there and check out how this is calculated and post your score

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 (like me) who play that other silly game The SuperCoach ‘PAR’ was 2302pts

Get onto the Assistant Coach and SuperGold for more of these amazing facts

    I climbed 143 spots to 3,742 with a 2202, so may be a tad lower.

      probably a lot of spread in top 5k scores due to donuts or cover. i don’t get stats much but avg won’t necessarily be the halfway point of the top 5k. meh anyway

          143 spots from 3742 to 2202, you may want to re-do the maths.

            Don’t worry Nabzz, i think the education system is to blame. Teachers these day’s seem more concerned about Dream Team scores than nurturing the students with learning diffculties. Just another poor kid who’s slipped through the cracks!

    For the sake of less bickering Warnie (and don’t worry I don’t have an issue, I’m too lazy to nominate on twitter, so I’m not even fussed who wins) How about just upping the nominations to 10?

    • Warnie


      July 15, 2012 at 11:58 pm

      Then it will be “make it 15” and so on. There can only be one winner, so a pool of 5 is easy. If you look across the voting each week, it is lucky if 3 players are even in the race for the win. This week looks like an exception thins far.

    Who would be the best to finish off my forward line?
    I am thinking Sexton – Couch then considering either Treloar to any fwd I haven’t got or 5fer to Zaha and downwards in price. I think I would actually prefer to keep 5fer and trade Treloar.

    Currently fwds look like;
    Sidebottom, Beams, Robinson, Franklin, S. Johnson, Treloar, Couch, Martin, Pfeiffer

    I really want to keep the mid/fwd aspect operational so these are the best options but the is also Gibson in the mids which could be used also.

      6 trades left, 126k in the bank.

      Sooooo many choices. Basically i could win my league with the moves I make with these.

      Might just grab Couch now or next week and sit tight ready to pounce for the next little while.

        Sylvia is on fire. He’s back in the midfield and ahead of Magner and Couch.

          I wouldn’t say Sylvia is ‘on fire’, although he is starting to find some form and could be a mediocre downgrade. Still needs to pump out a 120+ before you can consider him as a decent upgrade.

        Whitecross seems to have turned the corner… averaging a shade under 92 and with his two most recent scores being 110 and 117. He can be a bit inconsistent though, and from what I can gather, doesn’t like playing in the wet… still, at $403K and with a BE of only 41, now could be the time to snaffle him up.

    2060 won 4 of 5 league matches, i think the par score is unrealistic considering there are close to 300 000 participants and only the top 5000 (about 2.5%) are used to come up with the 2213, hardly anyone got to this total in any of my league games, you may have to include the “middle class” (say the top 75000) punters for this particular statistic i reckon.

    If you picked Spurr before lockout over someone playing you would either be psycich or one of the worst coaches in the league, so no point getting all FMDT over it

    What will be interesting, is if anyone picks Sam Shaw or Lee Spurr to start this week over an out of form premium.

    It is tempting though, here are some numbers from my defence: Hanley 64, Suckling 31, Adcock 63, Lake 67

    On the bench Shaw 84 (I think we have to remind ourselves it was against GWS in an absolute thrashing, and the last quarter there were a lot of position changes, including Shaw up forward) and Spurr 104

    Very tempting, but you have to show faith in your premiums and not react based on one week

      I’d say Cox because he has been a gun for years, and Maric has only been doing it for one year, so Cox is the safer option
