Monday Morning Review

Written by Motts on March 28 2011

After 6 months of planning, scheming, trading, changing, and then changing another 1,000 times, how did the boys go for you on the weekend? Give it to us in the following format:

Score –

Captain –

Happy with –

On the block –

Giving serious consideration to bringing in –

Tipped X winners –

(include the draw as a win)

Now for all you rookies out there, don’t go making any trades this morning. Player values won’t change until after their 3rd round of playing so if you were unhappy with a bloke’s score on the weekend give him at least until the end of R2 before you consign him to the scrap heap.

  1. Score – 2,143 won my two private leagues but lost my 3 SCT leagues inc a close loss to Roo Bloke and a thumping by TeamStillNeedsWork. Both hurt equally as much.

    Captain – Gibbs, should’ve listened to Deano and jumped on Cox.

    Happy with – Gibbs, Pendles, Cox, Sandi, Burgoyne, Lower, Rioli, Heppell, Krakouer and Goddard

    On the block – J Selwood will get a stern talking to today about running at the ball lip first but will probably survive. Dean Bailey will be blasted for making Petterd the sub. How good did he look when he eventually made it onto the field??

    Giving serious consideration to bringing in – ROK, Harry Taylor

    Tipped X winners – 5. Hearty congrats to YPWanderer for his 8.

  12. I predicted that ruck scores would go up this year with teams not resting rucking on the bench but up fwd – a great example of this was Cox last night who was cramping ’cause of the heat but due to their sub already being enacted he just camped himself in the fwd line.

    2 of the top 5 scores were rucks (Cox, Ryder)
    4 of the top 13 scores were rucks (Cox, Ryder, Sandi, Hille)
    8 ruckmen cracked the ton (Cox, Ryder, Sandi, Hille, Warnock, Mumford, Ottens, McEvoy)

    … to anyone who saved money by not selecting two out and out gun ruckmen, well all i can say is that i warned you pre-season that the rucks were more important in SC with the advent of the sub rule.

    … i strongly suggest that anyone with some spare cash and crappy ruck stocks reinvests there money in the next fortnight before the price rise

    Captain –Swan (who else??)

    Happy with – Decided to include Mckernan instead of Otten as Otten was supposedly the sub – paid off handsomely, Lower, Heppell, Tapscott, and Darling and Richardson were very nice off the pine.

    On the block – Only real problems were Selwood and Boak, but I’m keeping Selwood and Boak still got an 86 when his team was beaten by 75 points, so can’t ditch him because of that!

    Giving serious consideration to bringing in – Bartel’s clutch play impressed me, as did Cotchin

  16. I was nearly 200 points behind before the last game with cox and swallow to play and my opponent had waters. My two turned it on and got me over the line by 30 odd points. Now I never thought I’d say this but I love swallow ‘n’ big cox!!!

    N. Riewoldt (have a feelign that he is not going to live up to this years hype, there are some really good defenders getting around just to stop him),
    Goodes, Knights, Grimes and Most of all JOHNCOCK! (cost me a lot of money, to spud it up).
    Some usually very consistent scorers suprisingly didn’t fire and cost me a massive score

    Giving serious consideration to bringing in – As I’m sure everyone is now looking back going ‘I had them in my team, then took them out’ and bam, now you wish you had them! Mine are Dangerfield & Zaharakis. Who are you now wishing you could have back?

  37. I’m looking at my team for this week. At this stage, Otten (D), Duigan (D) & Richardson (F) will be dropped from the team to make way for Lower (D), D.Swallow (M) & Petrie (F).
    As it stands, I have no place for McKernan, Harris, Irons, Toy or Matera who will have to earn their place in HGL’s team.
    Is anybody going to rush their GC players in this week?

    Giving serious consideration to bringing in – Nil, lets watch the next two rounds first before jumping to conclusions. I’m already regretting taking Judd instead of Swan so I didn’t have the 2 Pie guns but at least there was no damage done this week.

  57. If you are going for overall and you have J Selwood, do you be agressive and trade him out for a premium that will play so you don’t lose ground?

    Also are the GC dynamic duo of Harris and Swallow automatic starters in the mids for SC? Or would you stick with at least A Krackouer?

  58. Anyone got any thoughts on Johncock?

    He spudded it up big time on the weekend with a disgraceful 41. needs 222 to break even, has a bye next week and i have a feeling that my gamble to try and have a unique might not have paid off, i think he’s going to get a forward tag each week.

    Got a great score in the first round (2375) and as i am now much closer to overall contention than i would have thought, i’m thinking about burning a trade early to get some consistent and maybe still slightly unique to have a crack at the big one (silly not to), anyone got any ideas? already have godd and gibbs and was thinking Enright or Newman?
