Leading Cam 172 – 123
Huge discrepancy between Rockliff’s DT and SC scores.
Similar discrepancy between Judd’s DT & SC scores.
Rocky gave away a few frees in the first quarter as well as two or three turnovers . . . his SC score was -5 at Quarter time and was never gonna come back from there given the Blues’ dominance over the rest of the match.
I thought the game was massively painful to watch. The lack of skill by both sides was evident and the complete mismanagement by the umpires was disgraceful. I just hope the rest of the round isn’t handled the same way by the umps. Treating players like primary school kids because of Baker’s indiscretions last week is hardly justifiable. The MRP sent a strong enough message . . . it doesn’t need to be repeated by the umps paying stupid frees which ruin the spectacle.
I agree with you, Mike. The umpires exerted far too much influence on that game. I’ve never seen a game where so many 50m penalties were paid.
I think it was something like 12 50s, ridiculous! They always go from one extreme to the other. Why cant they find the middle ground, and maybe, God forbid, use a bit of comon sense for a change.
Agreed Mike, it wasn’t much of a spectical, Carlton were shocking in the first quater, I picked them to win by 50 in my tipping comp, wasn’t looking good for a while, but in the end they came good, should pick up a few points on everyone in my comp as far as margins go.
232/2/GAJ. Good to see Betts have a couple of good games in a row. Carrazzo finally gave me a semi decent score. He hasn’t done shit since I traded him in a few weeks ago.
Juddy & Rocky
Juddy & Rocky.
Betts keeps getting better and better, and I might get him in my side next year.
Hodge, Buddy, Higgins, Gia and Hall tonight.
If what Mike said above is true I will be fearing GAJ’s score when he receives 10 Free kicks!
Judd and Gibbs. Fairly happy with their returns, both hit their respective yearly averages.
Not a bad start. Judd, Carrotts, Gibbs and Rocky. Also good to see Carrazzo get me a decent score again. Its been a little dry from him the last 5 weeks! If he can just get me 80-90 a game i’m happy.
167/3/GAJ !. Well not very happy about it, but I’ve got enough depth to win [Hille still on my bench]
Trailing Motts 172/2/GAJ
Really couldn’t ask for anything more….
3rd ton from Betts in a row. Disappointed Rockliff’s 3 FA really hurt his score.
Not a bad start, not a great start either.
Changes to Hawks
In: Carl Peterson
Out: Rick Ladson
Dam… Opponent now has a full team 🙁
So what’s the word on Jpod? Is he playing or will he be a late withdrawal?
Not sure as listed in Sunday Teams, Fitness Test??
Oh thank God!!
Saves me my donut!!! Now watch as Carl spuds it up.
Ditto. If I win by 49 I’ll be thanking him personally.
I was shattered when I saw Peterson playing…I was hoping you’d cop a donut…haha
Bought Carrazo in pretty happy considering he took Taylors place
561 / 7 / GAJ vs
Cam’s 465 / 5 / GAJ
Not impressed so far but managing to stay in front.
Not happy with Hall will look at an upgrade in a few weeks. Which Blonde fwd back then I wonder?
Happy with the 50 from CP as it would have been a 0. Gotta love the Rolly Polly comeback and one of my few significant increases!
Reasonably happy although Cooney has been disappointing of late.
591/6/NDS, there goes our final four chances.
Not necessarily, but probably more likely than unlikely.
621/7/GAJ. All my Doggies players a letdown. Gia, Gilbee, Cooney and Hall. Hodge for Brownlow!!
450/5/GAJ. Hall & Franklin (120 combined) have killed me.
Doggies let me down
Hall, Gia and Gilbee
Dogs let me down…..again; Hall, Gia and Higgins.
Hall will be out next week.
Below average scores from all – Hodge, Gilbee, Rocky and Higgins.
An article in today’s Geelong Advertiser says nothing about Pods’ likely omission.
“James Podsiadly must shoulder the main forward role after Cameron Mooney and Steve Johnson copped suspensions this week, further compounding the loss of Tom Hawkins”.
Surely Balme’s comments on SEN yesterday would have been acknowledged.
Judd & Hodge have done the business.
Harbrow, Gia & Rocky have underperformed.
The only reason why I traded SOS out this week was cos he got dropped and I didn’t have any back bench coverage, what a waste of a precious trade.
Tossed up between trading out Trengrove or Silvagni this week and went Trengrove, because of Freos run home. Just hope Silvagni gets a few more games towards the end of the season.
Darren, the guy I’m playing in the LoEC, has Mitch Banner on the bench. No (E) so he has no chance of getting his score. Ouch.
who is everyone gonna replace Barlow with
Me . . . I owe you all big time.
832 / 10 / GAJ
Continue to be unimpressed. That’s 3 midfielders in my team now that have failed to score 100s – Barlow, Pavlich and Cooney.
Thank-you and goodnight, Mr. Barlow. Rest up and we”ll see you next year.
Its a cruel, cruel game sometimes. 🙁
Sidebum’s out of tonight’s game.
Who the hell is Jarryd Blair??
a project player maybe.
mentioned him in the future SC guns post recently 🙂 Little bloke from Wonthaggi. I think he’ll go alright when he gets a consistent crack at it.
801/9/NDS, Pav was a big letdown.
Happy with Nic Nat – Jolly trade. Bad = Hall, Pav, Coon, Waters
Having a real stinker. But so is my 2nd placed opponent in my tough match who has 935/11/GAJ. Pods and Spazlich were supposed to be my points of difference but I might have to count on others.
1130 / 13 / GAJ
Looking like I’m going to lose all 3. Jolly was a good in for me this week but Tippett would have been an even better one. Hoping the footy gods smile upon me by frowning upon Bartel and Pods tomorrow.
You might get real lucky Motts as I wouldn’t be surprised if Jimmy is a late exclusion due to the “general soreness” of his arm and I think JPod may struggle against Thompson et al.
The word was J Pod out also. Desperately waiting on news of this
Don’t worry Motts Jolly will be better in the long run with no sub 20 point games.
SEN’s reputation for late changes is not great – remember GIA which was meant to be rolled gold?
Swan too, the only they got right was Barlow.
Balme is a liar. Final Teams – Pods is playing!!!
Geel – In: Simon Hogan Out: Cameron Ling
North In: Leigh Adams Out: Nathan Grima
Pretty happy as this includes Peterson, Henderson and Stevens filling in for Hurn, Brown and Gray.
BTW has anyone seen Gray lately? I’m starting to think he doesn’t exist anymore.
Pies ontop of the ladder!!!!!! That’s where we’ll be come Oct.
We can only get excited when we beat good teams and West Coast aint that.
Yeah but its the way you went about it HGLBCO. You couldn’t ask your boys to do a much better job than that – contrast that to how the Blues disposed of the Lions on Thursday.
Yeah, the Pies ticked all the boxes, and, played great footy last night. I’m a very happy Pie this morning, but, we need to execute our skills under the fiercest of pressure, and those tests are still to come, so for now, happy, but keeping a lid on it.
Ok I’ll put the lid back on. Team looks pretty settled, only change will be L Brown out & in Fraiser. I don’t like it but can see it happening.
Sidebottom will come back in, Medhurst if he can get the run & spring back & Fraser.
I think like Leon, Fraser is down a bit on form and confidence. We need these guys to be up and about. Fraser kicking a couple each week straightens us up and makes life easier for Dawes/Cloke and the crumbers. The fact that he kicked 4 in the 2’s last week is a step in the right direction.
I’m thereabouts with plenty of class and the captain to come.
Ling out, Pods and Chappy playing.
11:46a.m Post – It’s a draw PA! Still happy as Pods is playing.
Damn it. Ling and Grima out. No mention of Pods or Bartel.
You don’t have either of em?
no but I do
Same. Massive sigh of relief.
Im 1207/12/GAJ leading motts 1130/13/GAJ.
Motts needs Hunt, Kennelly and Selwood to outscore Fisher, Bartel, Martin and Chapman, plus another 77 points….
it looks like i might have this one…but will have to wait and see
Throwing in the towel, Cam. Well done.
Goddard/Gilbert/NDS to finish.
MY Opponent in my tough league is 2086 with Goddard to go. Jesus was her captain, so it’ll be a close finish.
Couldn’t give a flying fuck about my SC score . . . Richmond’s heart and fight in that win has me stoked for the boys. Best win in a decade for us.
Hate to rain on your parade cause from what i can gather it was a gutsy, club defining game, but …. the title of best win in a decade mustn’t have too many challengers when it comes to the Tiges.
Definitely a club going in the right direction (finally)
Rain on my parade? No chance, buddy.
Just couldn’t resist the Richmond jibe.
Seriously, i’m happy to see the Tiges off the bottom.
Can’t complain with a final score of 2178 and that’s with Skipper as my only ruck
2255, with krooz an accidental inclusion. dissapointed I missed my trades, had my eye on tippet, not so appealing after a 70k jump.
2320, Back on track after last weeks effort. Not sure who to bring in for Barlow after watching Ablett’s average performance.
A dismal 2052. Not a good sign when you score more in DT. Counted 15 of my 22 players who scored below their average. Failures all across the park. Forward line in tatters . . . Stuff it . . . Go Tiges!
2279 winning all three leagues.
Disappointed with Sydney as they would have given me 8/8 tips.
At this stage Montagna leads the race to come in for Barlow as Ablett’s performance was out of character suggesting the pressure is mounting.
2396, my highest ever score. Knocked over Motts, so im stoked. won all three leagues
You got lucky in DT Cam, thanks mainly to JayZ.
haha i dont care about DT
Nice comeback, nor do I that’s why I only have 2 trades left.
i have 3 in DT and 4 in SC lol
Won all 3. Not happy with Tadhg as has lost his $$$ value.
2412 – very pleased with that
2180, clear second on the ladder now, two games clear of fourth, two games behind the leader who’s averaging about 180 more than the next best 😀
2308 … 3 league wins …have to solve the Barlow situation 🙂
