Thursday Chit Chat

Written by Motts on February 9 2012

Intra club matches, Daw, club training reports, the fact that Ratten has guaranteed a Blues Top 4 finish this year (and I thought I was bullish!), rookies….

Chat about whatever you like here.

  1. Not sure if this is new this year, think it is, if a player is selected in a team but scores a zero (e.g. does his hammy just after the bounce) you get the zero and you don’t get your emergency’s score

    Pretty sure in previous years I’ve been saved by the emergency

    Must remember not to select people who do their hammy

  2. How do you think this sort of team structure will go? Obviously rookies would change depending on NAB cup etc…
    BACKS:
    B. Goddard, B. Deledio, H. Shaw, G. Broughton, S. Hurn, M. Buntine, M. Clark
    B. Ellis, B. Smedts
    CENTRE:
    G. Ablett, M. Murphy. J. Selwood, S. Coniglio, K. Stevens, D. Zorko
    A. Treloar, B. Harvey (Bris)
    RUCK:
    S. Mumford, M. Kreuzer
    J. Giles, O. Stephenson
    FORWARDS:
    L. Franklin, M. Pavlich, D. Martin, J. Brown, J. Porplizia, A. Tomlinson, A. Saad
    D. Pfeiffer, T. Walsh (Syd)
    Some advice would be great.
    Only have B. Harvey as I like his background and he seems to be the most likely to play of the M/D which i really need.
    Cheers.

  3. Bad luck about Jamieson Mottsy.
    Looks like Juddy’s going to need more shoulder surgery.

  4. How are we people? 1 week til Nab!!! Woohooo
    2 quick things.
    Who of u has seen the tv series The Leauge? It’s about fantasy football in the us, if u are a die hard fantasy fan you will love it, and its funny as hell.
    Brings me to my 2nd question, anyone doing the SupercoachGold draft or done it in the past? Me and my mates are going to give it a crack, I think its a great way to put research to good use and have a unique team all season.

  5. Any inside word on the Roos’ intraclub?
    I’ve heard Sam Gibson is impressing although after what Scotty did to Richo and Pederson early last year I will be cautious.

  6. News from Geelong is Trav Varcoe will be back round one if anyone was looking at picking him. Injury is healing better then expected, good news for the cats.

  8. Whats everyones thoughts on Kieran Jack? A bit of a forgotten player, but i love him as a player and have a good feeling about him. At 438k i think he could be a better option than barlow but im not sure. Time will tell but i would love to hear someones view on Jack. Say if you had been to sydney training or something.

    Thanks guys!

  10. OK guys i have the spare change for either of these promising lads.

    Kane Lucas. Carlton boy have $100 on him to win rising star. Personally i rate my chances highly.

    OR

    Gary Rohan. Has red hair and every team needs a Ranga. Been talked up quite a bit and there is just something about him that i like very much.

    Please discuss.

  11. Cam Hitchcock has been placed on the LTI meaning Port can now upgrade 2 rookies with Cassisi on the veteran list.
    Good news for Pfeiffer and his owners.

  12. A possible “league only” part strategy became apparent today, if one was to focus on a “league win only” team then to basically sacrifice one bye round for the benifit of the other two, it may be possible to achieve this by making your team partly from R12 bye players (Pies, Bombers, Freo, Cats, Melb, Syd) …..so basically you score poorly for one round….. but can in turn choose as many of these guys as you so wish…

    Swan + Pendies + Shaw.
    StevieJ + Joelwood + Bartel + T West/O stephenson.
    Broughton, Duffield, PAV, Fyfe, 211, Barlow.
    Bolton, ROK, Goodes.
    (can’t think of a Demon or Bomber)

    Obviously stick to G&R, hopefully get lucky (no LTI and find a few keepers) have a few ripe Giant’s to milk before R11 and after R13 Upgrades can be anyone…

    Thoughts???

  14. Surely only a matter of time before big Dan archer gets a game! I reckon ferguson not to fare away either. Seb Ross played pretty well on Goddard. Daniel markworth saw a lot of the ball but I think he is still too small yet. Sippa has bulked up a bit. Winmar got concussed but he wil be ok. I love curren, he’s the number I wear on my footy jumper #43. I really hope he gets a game this yr.
