Motts Movers R2 – The Mids

Written by Motts on April 7 2010

OK lets start with the blokes who are dragging the chain:

Tom Scully ($179,200, 42.00) – ok I admit this could be a little controversial considering he’s only ever played 2 games of league football but his peers are all averaging over 50 and he was the #1 draft pick! He costs more than any other rookie – when you pay that kind of coin you expect a better output.

Andrew Walker ($268,700, 54.50) – The #2 pick of 2003 (behind A Cooney) looked shredded in the pre-season after training away from the main group for disciplinary reasons but while Coon has won a Chas and is dominating, Walks is plodding along with a 54 average. Pull your finger out, Walks!! The Blues need you!!

Justin Sherman ($483,300, 57.00) – Motts talked the Sherminator up pre-season and I’m sure he’ll come good eventually. Maybe a bit of Motts shaming is what he needs to turn it around.

Dishonourable mentions: Luke Ball (you guys woulda been onto me if I hadn’t at least mentioned him), Chris Masten, Dom Cassisi, and Bernie Vince (I told you he’d start slow!)

And those that have picked it up and are running with it:

Michael Barlow ($111,400, 145.00) – no-one has a better average. I think its fair to say we’ve all developed a bit of Man Love for Mr Barlow.

Travis Boak ($439,700, 126.00) – yes there are blokes with better averages than him but nearly all of them are $100k dearer. Has started the year in scintillating form.
Patrick Dangerfield ($332,700, 95.50) – feeling a little dopey right now for picking Ziebell over him. Great average for a great price. Wonder if his numbers will be affected as injured players start coming back.

Special mentions must go out to Kane Cornes (as much as it irks me), The Coon, Jason Davenport, and Jordie McKenzie (who? Look him up!)

OK I’m sure I haven’t got a complete list. Let us all know who I’ve missed.

  1. I’ve got Masten and I’m not too displeased with his output so far. He looks a likely type and has a good work ethic so I’m sticking with him.

  2. what about houla?? 5th in the forwards based on SC points. Worth a mention as everyone thinks he is a soft dud of a player, even most carlton supporters do. Averaging 110 and is priced at 400K

  3. Here a couple that you missed Motts:

    GAJ: been playing crap but still put up a couple of 120’s (wait till he he actually has a good game)

    D WELLS (had a poor start)
    S MITCHELL ( how can someone have 30 something possies and only score 60 odd?)

    1. Yeah I try to pick out the blokes you wouldn’t expect to see and/or the extraordinary performances. We all knew GAJ would be well over 100 and that Wells would be crap.

      Agree with you about Sammy Mitchell though. Watched his game on Sunday from the stands with Richo who has him in her team and she was loving how much of the ball he was getting. Couldn’t believe the discrepancy between his DT and SC scores. I didn’t think he was that ineffective with it.

      1. He got tagged by ling in the second half and only had one posses in the last quarter plus he had 7 clangers which didn’t help. He needs to score 177 to break even this week against the doggies.

  4. 2 rounds bit too early to judge form. most of these guys are one great/crap game away from reversing their ‘form’. Quality always come through in the end

    1. Agreed Will. The worry for me is the knee tendonitis in Tippett and the resurrection of Leuenberger which is clearly affecting Clarke’s stats.

  5. Kruz looks the goods. can’t believe his engine this season! I’d dump the big Tipp now, too many better options
