Most Loved Player

Written by Motts on 5:33 pm, May 4 2011

On the back of Roo Bloke’s man-love for Boomer today I’ve put a poll together on the players we most love/most love to watch. Funnily enough, once I started putting in the options for it I discovered that a lot of these blokes are captains. I haven’t included past players to keep it succinct. So like George Thorogood said: Who Do You Love?

Motts Movers R6 – The Forwards

Written by Motts on 9:05 am, May 4 2011

Thrillers

Brent Harvey ($493,700, 129, 107.20, 90) – Remember last year when he scored 110 in the first game of the year and then 11 in his second at which point about 90% of the coaches who had him jumped off thinking his tired, old legs wouldn’t see him out another year? Over the next three weeks he slammed on 176, 109 and 110. Bit of déjà vu about 2011: he scored 64 in his first game of the year which I’m sure lead to more than few people trading him out again and since then has put up 102,

Motts Movers R6 – The Rucks

Written by Motts on 11:49 am, May 3 2011

Thrillers

Dean Cox ($484,900, 131, 126.6, 120) – Massive got it done again on the weekend continuing his superb form and rewarding all those that Vice Captained him. Still pretty cheap for a bloke with a 126 average if you’re not already on him.

Shane Mumford ($509,900, 159, 122.8, 43) – Spent Friday night giving Robert Warnock (67) a lesson on how to be a ruck.

Honourable mentions: Paddy Ryder & Will Minson

Chillers

Mitch Clark ($334,500, 34, 66.80, 124)

David Hille ($383,400, 66,

BS Rookie Review Round 6

Written by Big Sexy on 6:27 am, May 3 2011

My Top Five Rookie’s (<$200k) of the week:
1) L Thompson (Def 184k) Thompson took it to another level in his third game, and I know a of Supercoachers picked up Thomo last week before his first price hike. Well Thomo was stand out rookie of round six dominating the Crows half-back line…. He’s taller than he looks at 196cm, and his job security took a leap forward during the game when Phil Davis went down with a dislocated shoulder and ‘may’ be out for the season. Thompson has taken a step forward each week with 9, 19 and 20 possessions in each of his first 3 games… and most importantly scored 126 SC points on the weekend.

Motts Movers R6 – The Mids

Written by Motts on 5:10 pm, May 2 2011

Thrillers

Chris Judd ($507,700, 154, 114.17, 90) – Pretty hard not to put Juddy in here after a game he was compared to the best of all time in. Just can’t sanction a trade for him because he has a bye in R8 you’ll be benching him in R23 when you need him most. If you’ve got trades to burn though, $500k is EXTREMELY attractive for a player of Judd’s calibre.

Nick Dal Santo ($509,900, 150, 114.0, 118) – Tough to split Dal and Judd this week. In a game when so many of his cohorts were nowhere to be seen,

Motts Movers R6 – The Backs

Written by Motts on 12:27 pm, May 2 2011

Thrillers

Brett Deledio ($481,300, 119, 107.17, 116) – A 119 average over the last three rounds definitely puts this handy DPP at the top of the tree. Got some tough games ahead of him though: Freo, Dogs, and Dons before he’ll have a day out against Port and then have a week off in R11.

Heath Shaw ($450,200, 116, 102.67, 87) – Proving all the doubters wrong by averaging in the triple digits. Has the bye this week and then Geelong in R8 so I’d hold fire on him for the moment but after that he plays Adelaide,
