Players Under The Microscope – Geelong v North Melbourne

Written by Duck on 11:43 am, February 20 2010

It wasn’t until I’d started to review this game that i realised how few players i had from Geelong. Years gone by my team had at least 4 or 5 Cats, names like Ablett, Chapman,  Selwood, Bartel and Corey.

Now i look across my squad and see none of them ….. i think i need to do some rejigging in the coming days.

On the other hand, i rarely have players from North Melbourne, and this year no different. The only guy i had last year was Ziebell, and he’s currently not looking like getting a run.

Players Under The Microscope – Sydney v Carlton

Written by Duck on 12:30 pm, February 19 2010

Next game I’ll be looking at closely this weekend is the clash between Sydney and the Blues, i have very little interest in either team other than reviewing players performances …. unlike my mate Motts who is a one eyed Blue boy. I’ll barrack for the Blues in support of him.

So far i have these blokes listed in the starting 30 squad …. all are on notice and at risk of losing their positions if they don’t perform.

BACKS

T Kennelly – $320,700 and didn’t play last season

Biiiiiiirdman!

Written by Motts on 4:59 am, February 19 2010

In the name of research I flew into Adelaide yesterday and discovered in the local rag that there’s a big questionmark hanging over the head of Brett Burton. After the first NAB Cup game apparently he’s pulled up sore with swelling on the knee. If you’re like me and were seriously considering him for a spot in your frontline I’d advise you to think again.

Weekend Summary – Bulldogs v Brisbane

Written by Motts on 7:00 am, February 18 2010

One of the things separating Dream Team from Super Coach is that SC normalises its points so that the sum of the 2 teams points always equals the same number. I can’t remember off hand what that number is but check the Herald Sun on Saturday morning which will have the sum of the Saints and Pies scores. Add them together then compare them with the sum of the Blues and Swans scores on Sunday morning and you’ll see what I mean. The point that I’ve taken a long time in getting to is that the condition of the oval at a game like this one will have no bearing on the scores because at the end of the day everything is normalised.
