The Finals 2010

Written by Motts on August 2 2010

Well, here we are. All the trading, captaining, and emergencying you’ve done throughout the season has lead you to this point.

I finished 6th (10-5) in my primary comp after getting thumped by BS, 1st (13-2) in one of the SC comps so I now face PA in the first week of the finals and 5th in the League of Extraordinary Coaches (8-1-6).

A little disappointed I missed the 4 in 2 out of 3 (and I’m laying the blame with Waite, ROK, and Sandi) but I’m now focussing on the tough opponents I have in the first round.

How did you end up?

  1. absolute f**king shambles, worst score of the season cost me a place in the 8.

    Made Hodge my captain (Mr reliable my arse!) Fisher & carazzo got a combined score of 70 and sandi and jolly were shite.

    Scored 1864 and lost by 70 points, what a waste of the last 5 months!
    So pissed off! couldn’t give a f**k about the minors.

    well at least i’m off back to the UK for a month, so i can forget about AFL for a bit. laters.

        1. Finished 2nd in my league and have no trades left. Cant believe FEVOLA is only $150000 now. scored me a whole 1 point on the weekend!

    1. And I have one word for you, PA: EUOI. It means cry of Bacchic frenzy and its very handy if you ever get the Scrabble board out.

  2. Which of these midfielders should I bring in?
    I have about 590k to spend.

    Pendlebury, Chapman, Goodes, Didak

    1. I’d go Dids even tho he and his team are overrated. Pendles not consistent enough, Chapman could get rested/do a hammy any week between now and R22, and Goodesy has a pretty tough run home.

    2. Penders is 548k. avg 111.17 last 3 av 109.67 last 5 avg 118.60
      Didak is 530k avg 103.65 last 3 avg 127.00 last 5 avg 118.40 and is a DPP so it is Didak for me, although I have both in my team.

  3. 2091 got a donut from jPOD & lost 100 points by anointing Selwood instead of Swan.
    I lost to Sheedy by 20 points and dropped to 3rd in league #1.
    I suffered my first loss in league #2, but still finished a couple of games on top.
    I enjoyed a win in my tough league that is ranked 16th overall and missed the double chance by 0.82% finishing 5th.

    Still, Collingwood defeated Caaarlton twice this year 🙂 🙂 🙂

      1. It’s been a while since Sandi turned it on and Warnock scored 86 against Collingwood. If Sandi has run his race for the year, then maybe its time to go with the form line.

  4. 2066. I lost to my opponent by 23; A direct result of my benching of ROK over Henderson :(. I got lucky though and made 8th place due to another contender losing.

    2 trades remaining and one S Goodwin to deal with on the backline, possible upgrade in the forwardline as well depending on finances.

    Can’t believe I traded out Waters to Grundy two weeks ago, thats cost me about 160 points so far.

  5. I usually look at this site after being fairly happy with my score only to see just about everyone get a better score than me, but this week it’s different. I ended up with 2336 to jump from sixth to third after other results went my way, my second score over 2300 in a row and 557th for the round overall! Extremely pleased. 🙂

  6. 2304, with solid scores right across the park. Finished 2nd, 5th and 8th. All I need now is a gun defender and a gun forward.

          2. We will definitely have more leagues next year. Can’t guarantee I’ll be able to be in any more than 3 though – the HS haven’t exactly been co-operative of late.

  7. I was thinking about it this morning, thinking about the way my SC standards have lifted this season. I got 2144 this round (season avg is a touch above 2200) and i’m thinking how disappointed i am with this week’s result. Last year my pass mark was 2000 whereas i’m now seeing a pass as 2250ish. Thanks to sites like this.

    3 trades left and only a handful of cash to spend. Want to do some trades but i’m going to keep the gun in the holster for another week. Will be happy to see Bartel back this week.

  9. My team is full over pathetic under achievers!
    My scores have been pathetic of late and without a second chance in any of my leagues i can see myself out after this week. Just dont know what to do to change it.

    Hodge, Malceski, Gilbee, Gilbert, Enright, Broughton (Emg Webberley, Silvagni)
    Gablett, Goddard, M Murphy, Hayes, Boyd, Black (Emg Armstrong, Shuey)
    Sandi, McIntosh (Emg Warnock, Bass)
    Chapman, Goodes, ROK, Betts, Hall, Brown, Pods (Emg Watts, Hitchcock)

    Only have $5k in the bank and 1 trade which only leaves me with a sideways trade but I cant see any point. Think ill have to let these losers play and hope for the best. Very disapointed in how the season has panned out.

  12. Just missed out in both my “enhanced by gambling leagues” to finish 10th in both. I would have made it into the 8 in the big money league if I hadn’t of put Kennelly on the bench for Henderson.

    But seeing those leagues are ranked 97 and 23 I guess I can wear not quite getting there.

    Finished 3rd in my last league, after playing off for first in the last game, finishing just shy by 28 points.

    Will be using this site a lot more at the beginning of next year, trying to gain the extra 50 or so points a week I need to move up in my leagues.
