COVID-chaos, Dusty and Kelly replacements, five to go – Ep. 450

What a round that was! From the injuries to Dusty, Kelly and Darcy to the COVID isolating that needs to be done by Toby and Millsy, there wouldn’t be too many coaches who have no issues this week. We’re here to try and make some sense of it all. Try, that’s the operative word. Oh boy, here we go again! Let’s go!

    I traded Harmes for Mills, kept Whitfield on the bench, and have Darcy, Dusty & Kelly in my forward line. Any chance of some extra COVID trades Warnie?

    Oliver or Zorko?

    It’s no wonder that the AFL won’t let Geelong play at their home ground.

    With the Swines playing there recently, my brother reckons that they’ll have to fumigate the place.

      Stupid comment

      • Bill

        July 19, 2021 at 10:47 pm

        Have a coopers if you have no sense of humour, idiot.

        • Cooper

          July 20, 2021 at 7:14 am

          Lame humour. I like clever jokes.. & beer

          • Bill

            July 20, 2021 at 2:53 pm

            You’d be into toilet humour, more like it.

                Join the army, idiot. Then you can be Trooper Cooper. (Cooper… what a ridiculous name…)

  7. Justin Stitchup

    Any news on Josh Kelly? I will hold if only out a week or 2

    • Albo

      July 20, 2021 at 9:05 pm

      He will play.

  8. Scott Robertson

    July 19, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    Fantasy can be such a cruel game.

    Darcy, Dusty, Kelly, Ellis injured
    Mills, Greene out with covid
    All in one week

    This is me done for the year will see you all next year when hopefully i have better luck

    • Bill

      July 20, 2021 at 12:04 am

      Don’t blame you. Unless there’s some compensation made for isolating players I’ll probably drop out as well. It’s becoming a joke.

      • Ru Paul

        July 20, 2021 at 7:08 am

        Drama queens.

    • Glass half full

      July 20, 2021 at 7:26 am

      Darcy and Kelly are good chances to play.
      Dusty and Ellis are injured.
      Mills and Greene out for a week.
      Two trades plus bench should cover this. If not cop a donut and next week you’ve got some great players coming back in.
      Enough of the doom and gloom.

    • Bill

      July 20, 2021 at 9:25 am

      I’ll cop the injuries, but not players missing for Covid isolation. That is exceptional circumstances.

  11. Normy

    July 20, 2021 at 8:45 am

    Injuries are part of footy thatโ€™s why bench cover is so important throughout the season. Iโ€™ve got Dusty, Darcy, Kelly and Highmore with 300k in the bank so should be ok to cover and upgrade.

  12. Ando the brain dead barfly

    July 20, 2021 at 1:07 pm

    So now Lachie Neale leaves training with a shoulder complaint. Joisus!

    100% the colour orange was named after the fruit.

    Also tossing up between Danger, Salem, Hurn and Hunter as my next target(s). Thoughts on ranking them accordingly?

    • Aby Benny

      July 21, 2021 at 9:43 am

      Danger, Hurn (inj risk), Hunter, Salem. Hunter had a recent bad patch but should go back to scoring 90s.
