      I don’t think it was a terrible call when you consider the wet weather and his Yo-Yo form, I don’t think many expected 110 but it was also a fairly high scoring fantasy game compared to late.. I held, but only because I have 2 trades and 2 injury clouds.

    I parted company with Cogs ages ago, so I missed the bullet there. Knew there was a good reason for showing him the door… (in hindsight).

      September 12, 2020 at 12:36 pm

      Not being rude but regardless of his scores in the lower league, we’re 3 weeks from Fantasy being over and they’re talking up fielding a first gamer vs players we already have a sample of. The traders are very informative but no one is always right

      • Warnie


        September 12, 2020 at 12:43 pm

        We talked about playing Brayshaw over Riccardi – as simple as that. What was wrong with the process there? Decimated midfield, gets a lot of his scores via tackles, has a Fantasy game about him.

        Funny thing is, Brayshaw’s 22 is more than what Riccardi will be getting coaches this week.

          September 12, 2020 at 2:00 pm

          I honestly didn’t listen to it, and went on what the above poster and others on forums have said. Obviously missed the context of the conversation which is lost a lot of the time when it’s 2nd or 3rd hand information – for that I put my hand up.

          I don’t disagree on Riccardi, he was moved on to my bench last week. To think that he was going to continue to score 80s and this old (now old) methodology that playing the crows automatically means a player will score well is not correct.

          Me saying you weren’t always right was not having a dig either, it’s a fact that no one is every going to be right – otherwise you 3 would be sitting 1,2,3. The point was don’t take everything as gospel and use your own judgement. As stated you and your team are very informative and myself and the rest of the community are thankful for that.

          Only other thing I will say is that the other point of my comment (which was probably lost as you thought I was having a go) was that no one (without being able to see the future) should at this time in the game be playing a 1st gamer on their field vs a player like Coleman just to pluck one example. On the bench I get the 170k player but not on the field, at this point in the season

      September 12, 2020 at 12:33 pm

      No confirmation yet. He went for scans on a low grade injury, he really wants to play and the club want him to play as they need to win but I’d say they’re leaving it as late as possible to decide, which doesn’t help the Fantasy community.

    I want to take Rocky’s score, he is my VC. The problem is, all of my allocated emergency bench players are playing or have played, except for my Ruck emergency (de Koning) and Utility (J Honey).

    If I put a Mid (Titch) in my utility position, and allocate him as emergency, will it take his score (while I put the C on non-playing Honey)? Or will it be overturned by my Mid emergency who has already played (H Brayshaw).

  18. Avatar


    September 12, 2020 at 11:18 pm

    To my understanding, the system would still take the lowest scoring Mid (playing) reserve, which in this case, unfortunately, would be H.Brayshaw.

    September 12, 2020 at 11:20 pm

    i’m pretty sure it will take the lowest score which will be Brayshaws 22, so no luck with that one. Tell me wrong any 1, I would love to be for dobbosfloggos benefit lol

    September 14, 2020 at 3:54 pm

    I have 165 and Greenwood vs Maynard, Crisp and Pendlebury. We both have Adams and Grundy.

    I also have a trade in hand.

    Would you let it ride and hope for bad games from his uniques? Or i could trade Adams to Treloar to give me another unique.

    Worth the risk?

    A late out of Grundy or Adams would really suit me

  28. Avatar


    September 14, 2020 at 5:23 pm

    Better to upgrade Greenwood, if you can, rather than sideways trade Adams to Treloar. Could you with DPP (and enough upgrade cash) get Greenwood to Pendlebury? That would give you a better edge.
