    COX has just proven that I can’t pick a winning Captain to save myself. Definitely the difference between a good score and the shite I ended up with.
    Scraped through against 11th to finish top of the table with just 2 league losses for the year. I can feel a slip coming in the overall from 1761. Will I stay in the top 2000?

  3. 2104 / Swan

    Not the best round, but looking towards finals I am excited as to what might come:

    Broughton (58) – Sub-par
    Hurn (57) – Sub-par
    Pederson (22) – Sub-par + won’t be in team in finals
    Puopolo (58) – Sub-par + won’t be in team in finals

    O’Keefe (86) – Sub-par

    Cox (78) – Sub-par
    Smith (35) – Sub-par + won’t be in team in finals

    Fyfe (80) – Sub-par
    Rioli (75) – Sub-par
    Hurley (81) – Sub-par +won’t be in team in finals

    Okay so looking at an extra 400 points there at least, and I didn’t have that many stand out performances either, except for 3 people over 120 – Swan, Pendles and Thompson. Also not that great captain choice (my fault only).

    Really happy with Thompson, first really good score since I got him, but was expecting more watching the game. But anyway, that’s all from me, except for one thing:

    GO THE DONSSS!!!

    WOWIE!! What a finish! Defeated the Sneaky Russians by 1 point (!) and Roo Bloke’s Mob defeated Carl Spackler by 4 points allowing me to sneak into 4th! Lucky cos I had iSmith and Mzungu on the bench too.

    In my cash league however the team I needed to win fell 6 points short, so ended up 5th.

    Gold Medals to Judd (C), Swan, S.Thompson, Chappy, Goodesy and Darling with a 106!

    The following need to life for finals: Broughton, Montags, Zmith, JRoo, The Knife, Massive,

    This week now, the big questions have to be answered. 3 trades left.

  5. According to my maths I think I just got into the top 8 in the LoEC league by a bees stick from 11th and to top things off tipped all 8 winners for the round too :mrgreen:

  7. Catta’s Clan

    2538/Swanny……..only the 2nd time to ever break 2500 & I’ve now done it 2 weeks in a row……..finished in the top 4 of all 5 league’s & on top in 3.

    7/8 tips… missing on the lions in the last few minutes of their game.

    Hawks got over the line in a hard fought slog in Tassie, great week-end overall………bring on the SC finals!

  9. 2397 and had Massive as captain which has just proved to me that I should stick with this Theory “if Ablett not playing then pick Pendles”. When will I learn.

    Finished on top in all leagues I am in bar 1 which I finished 1 game back but had way superior percentage.

    1 trade left and unsure what to do. Must win 1st week so I don’t have to worry about my Geelong players.

  10. 2418.. Finished top in my league where I’m ranked 2nd overall and missed the 4 in the league where I’m ranked 1st overall, go figure. Just kept copping sides when they pulled scores out of their asses!

  11. 2187. Terrible score but has got me over the line in all five leagues. Captain choice so important! In my five leagues: not sure where I have ended up until lockout is over, though I will be outright second one game clear of my boss in one of them (yeah!!!)

  12. Got 2135.

    Finished 7th, 4th, 8th and 2nd in my leagues.
    The league I finished second in is hilarious. League average of 1,557 but I still managed to lose two matches as there are a couple of good coaches. But by average round score for individual team.. I am top; 120 points ahead of next! Should take the cup in that league anyhow!
    Other leagues may be an early exit… Just scraped in for 4th after defeating Crawf this week.
    For my first season not too bad, I’ll say!

  19. 2253/FLACCID COX

    *The Good: Swanny (136), Juddy (163), Chappy (142), Goodsy (139).
    *The Bad: N Roo (78), Kracka (67), Puopolo (58), S.Gilbert (70).
    The Ugly: Choosing Cox (78) over Swan in the Captaincy, Having I.Smith (99) on the bench.

    *Won 3 of 4 league games.
    *Top 8 in all leagues.
    *Top 4 in 3 of 4 leagues.

    Pretty impressed by rookies Mzunga (113) & I.Smith , great to see Didak grabbin 14 possies in the second half as the sub & J.Roo finally has a decent score (94).
    Excited bout SC finals with some important players comin back (hopefully)….Enright, R.Murphy, GAJ, Cooney.

    Now hurry up LOCKOUT….i wanna tinker with my team already! lol

  21. 2539. Late change in captain from Cox to Swan brought home the chocolates. Finished 1st in 4 leagues and 2nd in 1. 3 Trades to do some damage in finals and hopefully move into the top 10 overall come Rd 24. (53rd before the end of lockout). Enjoyed Mzungu’s 113 off the bench. Midfield all tonned up. Ablett, Enright & Sylvia to enter the side next week with a few unfortunates making way: Paul Duffield, Nick Riewoldt & Drew Petrie[bye] are all primed for the axe.

  22. Won 4/5 league games and a rare draw. Well, not so rare I guess, as it’s my 2nd of the season. Finished 4th, 2nd, 1st, 2nd & 1st in my five leagues. A big thankyou to all you guys who helped me get there with your advise, general comments and all the up/down polls thru out the year. Coundn’t have done it without you!

    Now c’mon lockout, just finish already. Have a feeling we may be waiting longer tonight as they finalise our finals draw.

  23. Lockout over, jumped up to 31st overall. Almost returned to my career high of 29th I was 5 weeks ago. Scored in the 2500s 3 weeks on the trot. How’s that for consistency!?

  24. Lockout over…

    Gained 147 places to 1614 ๐Ÿ˜† Ranked in top 0% (WTF?)

    I’m playing the bloke who beat me by 5 points back in Rd 9.
    Would have beaten him by 7 points this week!
    Should be a cracker of a final (1st v 4th)

    Happy with your finals draw?

  25. 2349/Swan

    It’s been a big weekend. Made the finals in 3 out of 4 leagues with a Richmond in SCT 16 Jets where Deano took my spot. Also managed to slip into 4th in 2 other leagues and held on to 6th in LoEC after a 1 point loss.

    I’ve got 3 trades up my sleeves with GAJ and boB Murphy to come back in. Lets hope Geelong and Pies don’t rest my players!

  26. Some nervous times ahead guys, with both Goodes & Droopy facing the MRP this week and Massive in doubt with an abdominal injury. Can cover Goodes with JRoo or Mzungu, but Doopy and Massive out are going to kill my rucks.

  27. OK actually I won 4/5, I thought I had won the last one, but anyway.

    * Strauss should have the bandage over his whole rectangle!
    * Pissed Conca only scored 3, can’t they play mercy on anything under 10? cursing I had Jacobs & I. Smith on the bench.
    *Broughton, Hurn and Puopolo were well underdone this week.

    Ended up finishing: 2nd, 3rd, 6th (SCT GIRLS- you’re all amazing!), 7th and 7th as well (have to play my “brother in law” first week of finals- well if I was married that’s what we would be).

    As for trades: now contemplating Sylvia to Bob Murphy. I need to bolster my FWD line. Also very poor bench cover in defence (Strauss, Cripps both injured and Tape). So perhaps looking at a def/mid tag team option for a little flexability. My FWD line: Pav, Buddy, N.Roo, J. Roo, A.Krak, Darling, I. Smith (Sylvia, Mzungu, Winmar). I could also swap Gibbs for Sammy Gilbert. Not sure I will do the latter trade this week though! 4 trades left.

  28. 2111/COX

    My worst score all year, not happy, but with 5 guns out it was expected.
    Welcoming Pav to the team this week and Jroo can hit the road. Hopefully a week for redemption.

  29. 2317/Massive, cant pick a captain this year to save my life.
    Won 3/5 leagues, finished 7th in SCT2.
    Other leagues finished 4th,2nd,7th and 2nd.
    overall ranked 20,313 with an average of 2169. Picked 6 as well.

  30. Thought I selected Stevie J as captain, only to check late last night it was Cox! Who had a stinker cause of injury, cost me my first loss of the season and top spot on the ladder! I now have to play my best mate in a 2nd vs 3rd battle!!

  31. S: 2147 OR: 7669 A: 2205.70
    Won 1 out of 5 games, but, I’m playing finals in all 5 leagues.
    3 x Top 4, 2 x Elimination Final.
    Finished 5th in SCT 2 & am looking forward to playing Herculian Blues.
    Finished 1st in SCT Jets, but will have to play well to beat Whodathunkit.

    Up to 782 in the overall rankings, hoping to get back in the top 500 minimum (need to make up 160 points over the last four rounds) by seasons end after making 150th in 09, but missing out last year.
    Finished top of my two minor leagues and second in LoEC. Not liking the words coming from Micky M about resting Pies players, but at least I only have two.

  33. Do the overall rankings continue on thru the finals? If not then I guess I have finished the year with an overall ranking of 2451 after being as low as 1030 and have an average of 2235.15. Will there be a SCT team of the year Big Sexy? Would be looking forward to seeing how you would pick it and what it would be based on ie finished ranking/ave or contribution to the site throughout the year. Either way it would be a fairly big job but a rewarding one at that.

  35. Ye gods who art in SC heaven,

    Giveth Sandi one more week of rest.
    Maketh Hurley sit out on the pine.
    Maketh the Hawks and Eagles fall out of their nest,
    But let Cox’s tummy be fine.

    Let Buddy and Droopy be free,
    And make sure Priddis plays.
    Maketh Hale back up for Petrie,
    And NRoo change his ways.

    Let Ablett come back and smash it,
    Cause I’m giving him the Big C!
    A fast recovery for Straussy,
    And don’t rest the Pies in the Granny.

    Omen.
