  1. Smashing everyone in the leagues… looking at 2100+ if Buddy goes according to form this afternoon.

    Especially happy with Foley, Boak, Grundy, Zmith and Trengove holding up in the face of a horror start.

    GAJ and Lynch in this week for Higgins and Tapscott.

    Matera and Harris are on the way out.

  6. 2,118 and 5 league wins. All the trading I’ve been doing has been working a treat. Problem is, I’m now addicted to 2 trades a week.

    I hear you Motts. I will be making a double trade next week for possibly Hodge or S Thompson then will keep the powder dry for a while.

    Not sure wether the score I got is going to make me slide or rise this week but I guess we will see.

    Disappointments this week were Adcock, Godd(F%#K YOU Dawson), Harris, Goodes, J Roo and N Roo.

    Will trade out Tappy and Harris and get Mzungu and Hodge/Thommo.

    Won 4/5 league matches this week mainly due to the great effort of my head honcho the Hedge Hog, bittersweet though. And tipped 7 this round missed out on Port :D.

    Had a win in my main league by 15 which I’m happy about…loving puopolo at the moment…happy with Broughton’s first ton and stevie j 7 goal bag……my opponent was the only team in the league that didnt have Goddard so that hurt but happy to take the four points ..

  11. 2148 / Bartel.

    Dissapointing: Goddard (excusable), Gibbs, Swan, Goodes, The Reiwoldt boys, Darling, Higgo and my captain choice.

    Happy times:
    Stefan Martin – A cow that keeps on giving. Averaging 86. Will be only 5k short of Heppell next week. Seriously!
    Lower, Grundy, Boyd, Judd, Selwood, Hodge, Zachary, and Buddy.

    5 wins too.

  12. 2150/Joelwood

    Judging by some of the other scores I’m seeing, I’ll take it!

    The Good: Lids, Broughton, S.Thompson (wow!), Juddington, Joelwood (C), Montags, Goldy, Buddy, Massive, Droopy, Pav

    The Bad: +cock, Chappy, Goodes, Roo

    The Ugly: Doi-gan, Darling

    The Couldabeens: Poo, Z.Smith

    On The Block: Doi-gan, Harris (strategic), WoodKrak (strategic)

    Won 3/3 leagues and the Hawks won so reasonably happy right now. The Dogs are travelling so bad right now they made Tom Murphy look good!

    Only 8 centurions is a concern. Big ups to Judd and Foley for their contributions. Motts, can you give Daniel Cross a mention in this week’s Chillers please? I paid a lot of money for him and he doesn’t seem to want to get out of the freezer.

  15. 2028. Very bad score, but considering I double downgraded this week to take full advantage of the cash cows and won 4/5 league matches to keep me in pretty good stead, I consider myself lucky. 560k to spend on upgrading ๐Ÿ™‚

    Happy considering Duigan, Goddard, Goodes, Swan and Darling.
    Plenty of low scores this week so hoping to climb back into top 10K.
    Didnโ€™t get Chapman into the team in favour of both Lynch and Jacobs.
    Jacobs scored more than Goddard; Lynch scored more than Goodes.
    Puopolo fattening nicely on the pine.
    Smith proves a worthy backup for the Sandman.
    Judd smashing it and the blues looking top four.
    Goddard all clear!
    Plenty of cash in the kitty for upgrades in the business end.
    Already decided one trade โ€“ Duigan > Mzungu.
    Didnโ€™t get Omened this weekend!

  17. Unfortunately Mzungu is a Fwd/Mid DPP Omen. Can’t get him in for Duigan, although I wish we could ๐Ÿ™ I also did the double Lynch/Jacobs downgrade this week and it paided off nicely.

  18. Anyone heard any news on Chance Bateman’s injury? I really hope it’s enough time to keep him out of the Hawks side (no bad intentions) so Isaac Smith can get a few games.

  19. 2141

    Happy with – Fisher, Shaw, Puopolo, Pendlebury, Boyd, Selwood (C), Petrie, Franklin, Knights, Didak (THANK GOD)

    Okay with – Goddard (only because he was carted off to hospital), Gibbs, Jacobs, Ablett, Cox, Pavlich, Yarran, Rioli

    Angry with – Batchelor, Swan, Harris, Fyfe

    Pretty good round considering the scores I am hearing for everyone else

    At 16,000 now. I am thinking I will probably go down to 12,000 odd. What do you think?

    Not too bad, seems to be a pretty slow scoring games. won 4/5 and would have won 5 if i had swallow on the field instead of harris

  21. Looking to replace McKernan for another DEF/FWD DPP to swap with Bob Murphy. What do people think of Grundy?
    Good option (Thumbs Up)
    Forget the DPP and get a Premium Fwd (Thumbs Down)

  22. 2337. Captain: Joel Selwood.
    Coming off the back of a 2481 last week I’m loving life right now!
    Bringing in Hodge this week proved a masterstroke ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. 2179. Happy considering 3 lowest scorers were Duigan, Harris and Darling combining for 112/3. They’ll be accepted on the odd occasion to have a dud game, but all at once is a bit harsh! 2 upgrades this week for me ๐Ÿ™‚

    0

    0
  24. 2176 but lots to think about with Libba, Matera and Harris stinking it up. Might be looking at a downgrade/upgrade this week with Mzunga in for Matera and possibly Harris up to GAJ.

  25. Hot Sh!t.
    Expecting to see the Poo in the BS Rookie Review this week. With a -36 BE and a 96 this week he should make another 50K and probably put him outside the BS Rookie scope (>200K).

  26. 2107/Joelwood

    Pretty average week all round with plenty of poor scores and not enough big ones to cover.

    Strap-on can join yesterdays list (Harris, Fyfe, Goodes, Chappy, Cotchin) for an early morning swim in the bay tommorow.

    Can Heater, Suckling, Pendles, Boyd, Jwood, Zmith, Bud and Dish please sit down with the rest of the lads and let them know how it’s done.

    Won two of three leagues but the loss was in the SC OG’s league (obviously the only one that matters). Went down by four points and gave up top spot to Crabby’s team. THUMBS DOWN ๐Ÿ™

    I’m afraid despite some ordinary efforts the coach is going to have to take responsibility for this one. Had Harris on the track when I could have had Didak’s 86. Knew it was coming the minute I benched him. He’s not really the kind of bloke to take that kind of lesson on the chin.

    Had enough of the Hawk playing on Sunday’s and having the lustre taken off the win by poor scores too.

  27. FFFFFUUUUUUUUUU!!!

    been on holiday in Borneo all week and couldn’t get reception!

  28. This week double downgrade

    Harris —> Mzungu
    Liberatore —> I.Smith (expecting him to play because of Chance Bateman injured – hoping)

    If Smith isnt playing i will upgrade. I am thinking to get lids because i only have one DPP mid/def in the mid with jacobs, so i need one more. But i also want Hodge and i only have 1 position left in mid.

    Get Hodge – thumbs up
    Get Lids – thumbs down

  29. thumbs up – if its alright to have only one DPP Mid/Def and its a rookie

    thumbs down – if you should at least have 2, especially one rookie and one star

    comment – if you think it doesnt matter if the DPP are rookies

  30. Have to admit I got a little excited when my opponents team on friday,
    I under-estimated his team, even though he had Judd on the bench, Sandy in ruck and Essendon on the field, he still came within 7 points of me.
    I finished 1970, Which is surprising given the performances of Adcock, Harris, Fyfe, J Riewoldt, Dangerfield & Matera (I was out of options up forward)
    I don’t mind Swan so much but I think I’ve become reliant on him to score..
    Goddard was playing damn well up until he went off, hope hes alright within a couple weeks.

    I guess the final reason I didn’t get that 2k this week were the players I left on the bench elsewhere in the field.
    My mistakes..
    Vickery over Smith
    Harris over Mzungu
    Cox as captain (Least I didn’t go Swan)

  31. !!! News Just In !!!
    My overall moved WAY higher than expected with my 2337 points from 1,109th to 190th in the world!!
    176th weekly ranking, and ironically 176 points off the $1,000 weekly prize. Am THAT stoked!

    On a sidenote….as you have overtaken me in the overalls I take back all previous well wishes.

  34. 2,111 – not a massive score, but enough to win me all 5 leagues. Nice feeling seeing those 5 green squares light up for the third week in a row! And Boak I knew you had it in you!!

  35. Some great results there guys!! Holding a spot in the top 1000 is definitely worth bragging about.

    Nowhere near that league but still couldn’t wait to tell someone (mrs doesn’t give a sh!t ๐Ÿ™‚ I went up 4294 places to 6472. As a first time SCer I’m happy with top 2%.

  36. Am willing to take the risk. Fairly strapped for cash(72,000) and already down to 10 trades. This would take my premium tally to 20, and count as a double upgrade.

    Liba – Burgoyne, Matera – Didak

    Thumbs up: Good trades
    Thumbs down: Bad trades

  38. Well, after having only 5, yes 5! players get over 100, I scraped in a 2,002, my lowest for the year.

    However, I managed to win 3 or my 4 leagues (going down to bloody Crawf by 50 odd points), but I did take a massive scalp in pinching a win over THE B.I.G. SEXY! :p

    Yeeee-haw (shoot guns in air)

  39. 2024/Boyd

    More let downs than upsides, but a shitty week is never far behind when you have a round like last week.

    Hodgey’s recruitment was payed back in full.

    Looking forward to bringing in swanny in the next few weeks, his BE is 155 so he should drop a little more next week although this talk about heading back to arizona is a worry.

  40. Finished up with 2264 which was enough to move me up 1900 spots to 1100 overall so reasonably happy. I made a few mistakes in bench selection but dem’s da breaks.

  41. 2128. Climbing up the overall rankings towards respectability. 10,239 overall now and if i keep up the good scores i’ll pass all those have crashed and burned and hopefully finish top 5000.

    Won 4 of 5 leagues including SCTalk league and another league where we are 17th league overall.

    Happy with: Selwood (with the double points too), Pendlebury (this is why i went the cheaper Pendles over the expensive Swan), Broughton (finally), Smith (stepped up with Sandi out) and my POD midfield (A Swallow, Mundy, Priddis).

    Thinking: no trades this week, may consider Libba to Tendai. Only have 12 left so need to be reserved in the month on June.

  42. Any more news on BJ?

    Was having a piss up at home and out of the corner of my eye I see him on the ground convulsing in the 1st qtr…almost ruined my night…im sure it ruined his!

    All i know is he was cleared of serious injury.

  43. 2012 and won 3 out of 3. Made two downgrade trades last week (Lynch and Jacobs in for Tapscott and McKernan) knowing I was playing 3 easybeats so wasn’t expecting a huge score. Also took a risk naming Buddy as captain, with his shite accuracy in front of goals but figured Lake wasn’t playing so he should have a field day. Then Lake was recalled after lockout, and although he’s not in form, it sent a shiver through me and Buddy did not have his day out as predicted.

    Disappointed with Dangerfield’s return of 44 (was he injured?) and Duigan’s 34. Matera’s 28 was pathetic, but you get that when playing the Cats.

    Will look at trading Matera and Harris out soon and will aim to bring in Daisy, Hodgey and/or Mzungu.

  44. 2022 doesnt sound like a lot but it was enough to give me 5 from 5 wins in my leagues so its all good. Ironically my DT team is pretty much the same but outscored SC with 2093 and also gave me 5 from 5 league wins.

  47. Two major dilemmas are Cross and Burgoyne – Eade has Cross in a tagging role which is killing his scores and Burgoyne is playing almost a decoy role and not having much influence at all

    I know the don’t trade prems rule, but if these two keep playing in their current team roles, I need to trade them to be any chance in my leagues

  48. 2208, I was very happy with Scott Thompson getting me 324 as captain ๐Ÿ™‚ I am the only one in my 5 leagues who has him ๐Ÿ™‚ anyone else other than me have him as captain?
