  2. 2283/GAJ

    Thanks to a bit of good fortune, I’ve managed to get into the Top 4 in 4 of my leagues. Gee, I really feel like a dolt for trading in JPK for Watson, something that had to be done but still, it hurts.

  3. 2215/GAJ

    Worst score since the byes, but have been disciplined enough to hold onto 4 trades – and I’m going to need them.
    Finished top 2 in all 3 leagues – now the real stuff starts!

  5. 2129 / Gablett

    Another week of disappointment unfortunately. No offence to Mr Yablett but I’ve had him as Captain three times since trading him in and he hasn’t scored more than 116 each time. Just can’t catch a break with choice of captain lately. JPK has officially made the black list for next year and Gibbs isn’t far off either. Still made finals in 4/5 leagues but with no trades left, I’ll be surprised if I make it to any Prelims. Good luck to all!!

  6. Dismal 2236/Swan

    4/5 league wins but got smacked by 156 in LoEC1 by PK Strikers (well done Paul, way too good this week). Funny turn of events though, the top 3 in LoEC1 lost this round……….meaning I’ve taken out the minor premiership ๐Ÿ™‚

    Loads of premiums off the boil this round, bring on the SC finals!

  7. 2409/Jack

    Pretty good score, happy with my captain choice this week. Had a lot of under performers. 10 didnt crack the ton (6 of those scored under 77) while the likes of Pendles, Swan, GAJ failed to fire as big as they normally would. Some big scores from Jack (C), Rockliff, Fyfe, Cox, Hartlett, Harvey, Thompson helped balance it out and give me a good score. Would be nice to move up from 568 and get into the top 500.

  8. 2103 / GAJ. Lost all 5 league games & <5000 rank gone.

    Many, many villains. Priddis, Buddy, Goldie, Gibbs, MMurphy, JPKennedy, T.mitcell, Staker (on due to Priddis)
    Clisby, Rowe & Colq on pine did better than most.
    Hard week of training ahead & a few nervous players

  9. 2396/GAJ

    Pretty happy with most of my troops other than JPK and Mitchell who came in for Priddis and I had Viney sitting there on the bench…

    Guys currently ranked 601st overall..Do you think this score will see me climb up???? Some monster scores around the trraps this round ….

    I had Big Ivan, Crouch & Clisby on the bench.. Couldn’t decide between Crouch or Mitchell, so not too upset there.. Clisby is never going to start unless seriously needed, and Big Ivan needed to be on the pine..

  11. my H2H match up look good for me on paper but my unique players let me down, whilst our players in common all did well. Roughead, staker, mckenzie and mitchell all below par. might be time to upgrade mitchell to a premo……

  12. 2147/GAJ 4/5 League Wins.

    League Placings: 15th (6-11), 13th (7-10), 12th(7-10), 6th(11-6), 7th (10-7)

    What a weekend it was to round off the Season. My players swung from dismal to divine and everywhere in between. My trades were whittled down from 4 to three on Saturday morning, when I traded Nic Nat to Rioli, the biggest Dud of the week. Any of Lamb, Webster and Duffield outscored him; which I could’ve used to replace his score.

    Having said that, he wasn’t the only dud by far. Let’s get them listed.

    Dastardly Duds:

    Cyril Rioli.
    Lance Franklin
    Dayne Zorko
    Tom Mitchell
    Josh P Kennedy
    Brent Staker
    Dyson Hepell
    Trent McKenzie
    Bryce Gibbs
    Paul Duffield (E)

    Solid yet unspectacular:
    Jed Lamb (E)
    Jimmy Webster (E)
    Jimmy Bartel
    Joel Selwood
    Dustin Martin
    Gary Ablett (C)
    Scott Pendlebury
    Dane Swan
    Brett Deledio
    Brendon Goddard
    Pearce Hanley
    Ivan Maric

    Superstars:
    Tom Rockliff
    Dean Cox
    Trent Cotchin

    Hopefully Priddis and Nicholls will be back next week.

    In other news, Eaglet has missed out on a finals spot in SCTTL4 by .12%. When asked how it felt to come so close, Eaglet had this to say:

    “You know, It’s all my fault. I know it looks good to be on a four match winning streak, but it could’ve been five. I lost that match by just under a hundred with a forward line doughnut. I had Mayes 101 on the bench that day; but I didn’t get the E on him….”

    “But that’s just one mistake in the whole season.”

    “I lost my season that day…”

    Eaglet then wandered off, looking dejected. We hope he can pull himself together for the unprestigious minor finals.

    As for me, I’m facing 5 sudden death finals. I’ll feel lucky if I come through any of them with a win.

    Sorry to all of you who brought Rioli and or Franklin in this week. Good luck to you all next week.

  13. 2197. This ends the H&A season for me with a 6-0 run to propel me from 11th to 4th and sets up a clash with my arch rival Catta in LoEC! Will need to pull out all the stops this week to topple the minor premiers

  14. Hey all. Top two in both my leagues. Kept the faith and held onto Watson & Hanley. Three trades and 100K in the kitty. Now comes the decision, trade Terlich or Clisby. Can upgrade either if I trade out Nichols. Any ideas?? Ps. will never trust Heath Shaw enough to get him into my team.

  15. Yep, got him in for Goodes last week. Have Goddard, Heppel, Gibbs, Hanley, Terlich, Clisby & Thurlow. I like Thompson but his run home is pretty difficult.

    Lucky enough to take out the minor premiership in LoEC2 and SCT ALLTHEWAY
    Traded in Griffen and Goldy this week with mixed results. Had some big scores with Cotchin, Cox and Rocky and was able to loophole Clisby’s 101. Buddy, Gibbs and Mitchell all below par.
    Looking forward to finals and good luck to all!

  18. 2217/GAJ (VC Joelwood fail)

    Awful round with lots of poor scores … but amazingly I won my matches and got into the finals in all my leagues … only one not sudden death though.

    Second week in a row I have not made good captaincy choices … so really need this right next week with the elimination matches in particular!!

    VILLIANS: myself as coach for poor choices of captain and playing Staker.
    Heppell
    Shaw
    Gibbs (must be close to “never again” list for next year
    B Wilson (but rookie and doing well helping out the backline carnage)
    Mitchell
    Gaaaawwwnnn ( note to Melbourne … play him in the RUUUCCCCKKK please!!)
    Bartel
    BUDDY (seriously, WTF???!!!)
    Staker

    GOOD GUYS
    Goddard
    Ablett
    Pendles
    Swan
    Joelwood
    Dusty
    JJK

    HEROES
    Hanley – for coming back with pin in hand and getting me over the line!!
    Cotchin
    Fyfe
    Watson – back early and rewarded me for keeping the faith!
    Massive
    Boomer

    Can I win next week … onto the planning sheets, video reviews, whiteboards and team notes …
    BUDDY, GIBBS, HEPPELL, SHAW, NICNAT …. liiiifffffttttttt next week, or your contracts will be torn up!!!

  19. 2298/GAJ

    Failed with the Joelwood/GAJ captaincy loophole. Scotland’s 119 on the bench hurts with Heppell/Gibbs et al stinking it up. Tom Mitchell is a fraud. Was swanning (!) around on the bench for the last month tonning it up, but when it counted he put up a 48. Disgusting. Meanwhile it was too late to use Viney’s 97. Some big scores from Rocklift, SuperCox and Cotch, while Hartless was a pleasant surprise. JPK will be delisted from the 2014 squad. He is now playing only for 2013 premiership medals.

    Dropped 6 spots to 49. One trade left and hanging on to it for dear life.

    Finished with 3 top spots and a 6th (in LoEC2 despite finishing over 500 total points clear ๐Ÿ˜‰ ).

    Bring on the finals!!

    More importantly though, i made the 8 in all 5 leagues, albeit one of them was by the skin of my teeth.

    Now with 2 trades left do i hold on to them or do i downgrade one and get Beams in and hope i stay injury free for the rest of the year.

  21. 2218 despite not getting to my team before friday started, so had bartel on bench and joelwood captain. Luckily my expected plan b was gazza.

    Big duds were staker, mitchell and omeara, with terlich dissapointing. Bartel and hartlett in for staker and omeara would have got me another ton.

    Final league results 6th, 2nd, 2nd, 1st, 1st and a good platform for finals (if down to one trade and carrying 4-6 donuts).
    Nice to see hanley and danger back to ton up for me.

  22. 2174/GAJ made 4 out of 5 finals. My only claim to fame this week was tipping nine and getting the jackpot money at work.

  23. Better late then never.
    2303/GAJ
    1st in 3 leagues, 4th in another and 6th in SCT1 and vs Motts in elimination final!
    Big kudos go to Fyfe- first run after trading Swallow
    Danger, Hanley, Cox, Maric , Cotch, Rockcliff
    Those that need to pick up their socks come finals
    Westhoff- who im stuck with, Mitchell, JPK, and Gibbs.

    1 trade left to cover injuries. Was going to upgrade Mitchell and Westhoff but injuries blocked that idea, so will hope the team is good enough.

    Good luck for the finals everyone

  25. 2218 with a donut (thanks Ibbo, thanks a bunch). Still the highest in the league though.
    Scraped into 8th spot with 4 trades and 62k in the bank.
    Will be going Goodes to Dixon this week and looking at Mummy as a roughy for the run home.

  26. 2157 GAJ

    Ibbo & Priddis covered by Wilson & Murphy… sadly didn’t put the E on Clisby and slapped my forehead when I saw Creepy Crowley tagging Murphs!!

    Would’ve loved a crystal ball, even if it was just to pick the C!! Cotchin, Cox & Rockliff would’ve won me the game in my preferred league!! (We both had GAJ!!)

    Hartlett did well for me too, with a handful of tons from others, disappointed with everyone else and that’s a few prems too!!!

    Ended up finishing 7th on percentage in my preferred league, so can’t complain too much as that was my goal at the start of the season… now here’s hoping for some minor miracles to get me deep into the SC Finals!!! (With no trades left… I gonna need a whole lot of luck too!!)
