The Originals

Written by Schwarzwalder on July 24 2018

Freo Tragic would like to know how many players from your ‘Original’ line-up in Rd1 are still playing for your team today.  He asked us yesterday in the Polling Station.  (Let us know if you want to see something in particular at SCT this week!).

Here’s the results from Freo Tragic:

‘How many Players do you have from your “Original” round one line up?
We could also include current rank.

I would guess that those with the most “Originals” would also have the better rankings.

It would be interesting to see the result.

My current rank is 8936

I only have nine “Originals”

Laird / Hibberd / Doedee.

Titch / Cripps / Parker / Dusty*

Gawn

Mundy / Smith.

* I traded Dusty out R12 for Wines and back in for Treloar.’

How does your line-up compare to Freo Tragic?  Have you got more ‘Originals’ in your current team?

  1. I only have 8 of my originals

    Laird/Savage

    Titch/Cripps/Danger

    Gawn

    Smith/McLean

    It would seem picking a good team from the start is not my strong suit! Although some of my originals would still be in the team if not for injury (Fyfe, Sicily etc.)

    Walters and liam ryan were traded out due to injury and then brought back in.
    Sicily and fyfe wouldve remained in my team if not for injury but hibberd, billings, jack graham and scott lycett were moved on for better options!

  14. Thanks for indulging my experiment.

    Finding those starting Premiums that can score well, then choosing value upgrades that can also play out the season seems to be the key to having trades late.

    Saying all that if it wasn’t for some beer fuelled Thursday / Friday nights I would have a few more trades up my sleeve.

    Thanks again 🙂

  16. Ranked 10244/3 Trades Left/$401.4k ITB

    16 originals remain in the lineup.

    Laird, Yeo, Simpson, Keefe

    Mitchell, Danger, Oliver, Zerrett, Cogs, Dusty, Lambert

    Gawn, Nank, Olango

    D.Smith, L. Ryan*

    (*Ryan was traded out due to injury and brought back in once he returned)

    Pretty crazy to have that many still in. I held through some real sour patches in the beginning of the season with hopes to save trades and really build a bye/post-bye plan. Have burned through trades at a vicious rate to accomplish the mission. For once, I’m ‘Full Premo’ and hope to have D7/M7/F7 coverage once the trades are used up if all remains smooth for me.

      1. Thanks mate! Although I also started with Hibberd, Crouch, Kreuzer and Billings so I certainly had a few misses

        PS. We had a very close game in SCT nutbags this week. Was a nail biter for sure!

  20. 10. 11 if you count Olango. 12 if you also count Brandon Ellis, who started in my team, got himself banished after being crap, and then was welcomed back into the team because he was cheap and looked to have turned the corner (the results of this have been mixed at best, but at least he has given me an extra number that I have been able to use to cover injuries).

    Anyhow, without further ado:

    DEF: Laird, Ellis*, Keeffe

    MID: Mitchell, Cripps, Parker

    RUC: Gawn, Olango†

    FWD: Heeney, Deven Smith, McLean, Curnow

    Currently ranked 3418.

    9 Premo
    2 rookies
    Lloyd, Laird
    Cripps, Danger, Selwood, Parker
    Gawn (Cameron)
    Smith, Heeney (Keefe)

    Nic Nat & Fyfe were forced outs (& Siciliy, but wasn’t an original)

    Mills, O’Meara, Tuohy, Petracca, were originals who I thought might be premos but were moved on for various reasons.

    Now sitting comfortable with full premo (including Rocky & JK), only one rookie donut on the weekend and 3 trades and $100k.

    11 Forced changes for the season not good, but also some ordinary trades during the byes sees me sitting with 2 trades and a 14k ranking. Worse still my D7 (Fisher) only gets me $408k for a replacement.

    Ah well, as they say, There’s always next year!!
