nab Cup – who you watching?

Written by Motts on February 10 2011

For me it’ll be the kids. Everyone knows who the guns are. What separates the good from the bad teams from the get-go is the rookie selection.

  2. Off topic (as usual)… just took the SCGold for a spin. I haven’t found anything really interesting yet.

    For most, I assume the predictor is a bit of a lure. However, I imagine it’s just using a random number generator of +/- 7% of average. Accordingly, those who think Sandilands is a good buy, wait until after round 4 where his price will have dropped 141k… yeah right! Goddard down 99k, Swan 73k… Anyone seeing a pattern?

    And now the obvious ones, Petrie up 216k, Knights 117k, Ottens 167k. So I won’t be hanging my Geelong beany on it.

  3. Ryan, Fox are showing the GWS & State Teams knockout matches, I think that may have caused your confusion.
    I’ll be watching cookies, and the Lions – don’t like their chances though…

  4. I think the mid-pricers will be the keys this year with the extra 4 trades to try and pick those that will improve by 15-20 PPG. If you can start with 12 keepers then you will need 20 trades for uggrades with 4 left for injury which is a bit light so if you can jag 2 mids as keepers then that will give you 8 for injury. My watchlist in nab are:
    Anthony
    Palmer
    McGlynn
    Brennan
    Higgins
    Hurley
    McLean
    Fyfe
    After being burnt by mids in ’09 with their lack of durability and last year going with a premium/rookie strategy, this year I think that a solid balance of the three types will be the key (along with Otten/Petrie)however I will be placing alot more emphasis on durability over potential this season.

  6. Few things to watch/follow:

    >> North. Obviously. Thinking of heading down the Highway next Sunday to watch the matches “down at Kardinia Park”.
    >> Lions: Kid from my cricket club is now at the Lions so will be watching their games to see if he plays and track how he goes. Feel duty bound to select him in my backline (Lester).
    >> Young guns: Heppell, Atley, Toy, Smith, Mzungu, Matera, et al. Not so much keen on seeing them play but seeing what their SuperCoach scoring potential is. Don’t care how well they play, just care about their scores.

  10. I’m interested in a NAB Cup round 1 match between Adelaide and Port Adelaide in the hope of unearthing a rookie listed player that may fill a role in my D10 or R4 position come round 16 when they are elevated to the senior list and one of my stars is out with a bye.

    I think i need help!!

  11. Blokes coming back from injuries are the ones to watch in my opinion.
    Chris Knights
    Andy Otten
    Mark Seaby
    Shaun Higgins
    Drew Petrie (if he’s playing?)
    Daniel Kerr
    And also blokes that changed to a new club during transfer week
    Everitt
    Sherman
    Vespremi
    Tarrant
    Cambell Brown
    Brennan
    Harbrow
    So yes, for me, a busy NAB cup!

  12. Thoughts from Nab cup last night.

    Melbourne – Grimes and Jamar continue to look good. Watts looks much better this year and Trengove showed moments of brilliance. Rookie Cook did a little as well
    Adelaide – Danger was everywhere and McKernan took some strong marks. I liked the look of Callinan and tackling ability. Thought little of Jacobs. Otten looked great. Tippet still useless.
    Port – Went missing.

    What did everyone else think?

  13. Starting to think Retzlaff at $110,200 could be bargain. With Fev looking unlikely, Retzlaff should get games and he’s got DPP which is always a bonus. Will definitely be keen to see what he produces this Friday night.
