Golden Stubby – Round 7

Golden Stubby nominations have been tallied! Who will you vote for?



Golden Stubby – Round 7


Every round I’ll be asking for your nominations on twitter for the player most deserving of this prestigious accolade. This isn’t necessarily the highest scoring players of the round. But the players who stepped up in a fantasy scoring aspect when you most needed them to. Whether it’s a highly paid premium who put in a massive effort to drag your team over the line in a head to head battle or a rookie priced player who stepped up and scored well above his expected average.

Lets have a looks at a few players who narrowly missed out.


Brett Delidio – 134 – The Richmond boys churned out quite a DT performance, Lids being the unlucky one to miss out here.

Majak Daw – 128 – Probably would of made the nominations easily if anyone actually had him on their field.

Gary Ablett Jnr – 134 – GAJ vs Melbourne wearing your captaincy? Enough said.

Garrick Ibbotson – 136 – Got quite a few nominations but all from the same person, sorry @MarkFromBacchus, it was a solid performance and will make you plenty of cash but wont get him a stubby nom just yet…


The Nominations are in!

Nick Vlastuin – 101 – Raising the bat for the first time in just his 3rd game, Vlastuin rewarded all coaches who brought him in on the bubble with a very handy score. With scores of 51, 78 and 101, lets hope this rising trend continues this week against Melbourne!


Patrick Dangerfield – 141 – Danger is continuing to punish all those who dropped him after his first 3 below par scores. Pumping out a massive score, has he become a POD for you?


Dustin Martin – 144 – Has Martin found his tank or not? This is his second 144 score for the year which rightly so deserves a nomination! He never took the foot off against Port and coaches will be hoping for a repeat this week against Melbourne.


Nick Riewoldt – 123 – It’s the NRoo of old! Using that massive tank to run his opponent up and down the ground whilst helping himself to 3 goals and a massive 13 marks. How long can we keep ignoring him?


Brandon Ellis – 128 – Really guys? Three Richmond players? This is one who I personally couldn’t leave out though having brought him in for a shade over $200k a couple of weeks ago. Has since averaged 99 points per game, included this weeks score which made him a lot of coaches highest scoring def for the round!

    Funny to see a few people claiming a “masterstroke” of having Daw on field. Then admitting after a bit of prodding that it’s only because they had Mumford injured.. in other words, pure luck!

    I vote Dangerfield, don’t have him but totally bias Crows supporter. Surprised Lynch wasn’t amongst the ‘narrowly missed’ players.

    Dangerfield for me. Not only is it wonderful to pick up these massive scores, but did you watch him play? He was in the same league as Ablett when he’s on fire. Absolutely stunning to watch!

    Just realised that Jack Steven got 145…wow! I traded him out this week to GAJ…obviously a good trade, but I could’ve traded out Hartlett instead :/ 108 points down the drain, but who’d have known. Very nice 2157 this week regardless (my highest total for the year so far).

      Hanley, Scotland, Goodes or Vlastuin, but I assume you already have Goodes and Vlastuin. Try a dpp swap perhaps? Blicavs to mid bench and bring in Daw, dpp swap so you can trade in Kerridge or Daw if you can. Upgrade targets would be Priddis, Buddy, Jobe, Danger, J Selwood (r12 bye).

    Dusty single handed gave me the upper hand in most of my league matchups, therefore he gets my vote

      I realise the stubby is more a weekly thing, but he’s been so consistent the whole season for a KPP. I mean, look at Buddy and Cloke…

    No majak????

    I had him on the field… Trading like crazy keeping 0’s from my defenders. Rioli goes down and moved cox into forward line to cover… Surprised more people weren’t in the same boat

    Any one think its a good idea to bring in Ellis for one of the port boys?

      Locked in the stevenson > ellis trade last week, and reversed my trades to bring in laird… absolutely devastating

    • Avatar


      May 14, 2013 at 10:03 am

      you would be losing money as Ellis should be about 300k this week… however not many good rookies coming through so may not have many better options

    • Avatar


      May 14, 2013 at 10:16 am

      I’m strongly considering the same. I reckon if he can avoid the vest and consistently average 80-90 then it would be a very good trade even if you’ve missed out last week. Personally I think he will and I’m very close to bring him in this week since I’m 30k short for Hanley. I do not like any of the rookie options (thurlow needs one more week) so if you can’t reach the top then bring ellis in. He has the potential to take you there whilst score solidly for you

      I’m likely bringing him in this week. His BE is very low (negative I think) and he’ll move you within striking distance of Gibbs in the next week or two (assuming Gibbs is back this week and you don’t already have him). I’m contemplating bringing in Laird (I know I’m a week late) as well for one last cash grab before going all out upgrade. His BE is -30 or so, and I think he is predicted by Assistant Coach to go up by about 40k this week. Assuming he’s named that is.

    I won’t because it’s just too risky, but someone with nads made of tungsten could put the C on Martin this week and rocket up the rankings if it comes off. It sure is tempting.

    Am I and DoubleA the only ones considering Martin for captain this week
    I am also considering Buddy as a roughy. I’m ranked low to mid 3000’s and trying to get a higher rank

      For a moment I thought that said you were considering trading Buddy to Roughead.

      Take a longer term view for your team. It’s only round 8 this weekend, so while things should be slowly clicking into place don’t be too focused on things that might get you a lot of points but have a risk of backfiring. You’re well placed in that you’re keeping in touch, but remember it’s not a sprint to the finish and consistent scoring is best over Heath Shaw type consistency.

      For example, with the exception of round 2, I haven’t had a weekly score ranked within the top 2000. Round 1 and Round 5 were terrible (27k+ and 41k+) but the rest have been weekly 2.4k-7.6k. Hardly earth shattering numbers individually (though I’m very happy with them), but add up to an overall of 516. So yeah, consistency is key!

    haha i had majak on the field! but if im starting him then it’s pretty easy to guess the state of the rest of my team. 90 from 3 port stooges, 50 from murph, gibbs out, swallow hurt. not a great week other than majak.

    What more could Vlossy have done? 23 disposals, 11 marks and a goal against Port. If he puts in a performance like that next week he could get 130 against the Dees. You expect big scores from blokes like Danger, Roo and Dusty, you don’t expect them from $141K rookies. A very deserving nominee and hopefully, a deserving winner too.

    Tom Lynch 165 DT and 10 goals 2 no nom??? Seriously you say its only GWS! Has anyone else kicked 10 against them? A joke.

      You’ll find that not many people had him in their team and he would result in coming last in the poll. That is of course if people vote for players that performed well in their team.
