    With Bartel, Chapman and the donut, ill be enjoying wins all round!
    Not bad for a bloke who hasn’t had trades since round 16, with Shaw and Hibberd on the bench..

  2. 2471 which should make me smile but still not enough to win all my finals. If Bartel, Enright, Chapman and Stevie J all get subbed by Chris Scott i’ll be a happy fella.

    At least North’s slim finals chances are alive thanks to Richmond’s upset win.

  4. 2264 leaves me eliminated from 2 leagues, 2 wins in 2 other leagues and a loss in the 5th league that gets me the second chance. Down to 1 game next weekend and the week off in the other 2 with only Enright to be benched for Bob Murphy.

  5. 2439 was not good enough in the end for the Dirty Kelsos!

    Down by 61 points which can be directly attributed to lucking out with the captain choice this week despite Cyril Rioli’s unusual score.

    Grundy, JRoo, Mumford and Hurn did all they could but unfortunately Goodes and Thompson couldn’t replicate last week’s form.

    4/5 and a week off in all remaining leagues next week with Harvey and Petrie to come in!

    Nick Riewoldt will spend some time on the bench next week I think and Mark Harvey… THIS week is the time to rest Nat Fyfe!!!

  6. 2450 enough for wins in all 4 finals games. Brought, +cock, NRoo, Goodes all had schockers, but plenty of 150+ players. Now got week off & through to pre-lim in money league so big decision on whether to keep off the T button next week & preserve 4 trades. Ablett, Sandi, Leumburger & Goldstiene on the radar for trading in.

    Mixed bag. Comfotrtable win in my cash league, and a loss to the top team koits men in the LoEC. The difference was some ripping scores from Mitchell, iSmith and Delicious. They won’t be playing pathetic port this week. So 2 first semi’s next week. No rest for the lads.

    A few players need to pick themselves up next week: BJ, Broughton (I really mean that Harvey should stop being a d!ck), Jedcock (I really mean that Voss should stop being a d!ck), S.Thompson (won’t have a pink pig hanging off him against the witches hats), The Knife, Goodesy, Sylvia, and Roo. Chappy should also pick himself up for the Prelim in 2 weeks time, just in case.

    And win over the top team in DT’s SCT2, so a week off for the DT lads.

  8. 2347 joelwood some shocking scores this week with selwood at 12 points at qtr time I thought I was in a world of strife. had to make up heaps of points with lower duigan and z smith not even making 100 between them. Enough to win all three leagues though (just) and stoked don’t have to worry about my Geelong players next week. Once again……. Arn the Dons!!!!!

  10. 2310. Played 5 Qualifying Finals and only got over the line in 2 of them! Now going to have to navigate having Enright, Chapman & Johnson out this week (3 trades remaining).

    Selected Lower this week over Duffield, for him to score 10. Just going to bite the bullet and trade Lower this week as I can never get the selection right.

  11. I beat KBM with a bit of luck and some poor scores from Thompson and danger. Glad I got rid of danger early on in the season. 4 trades left and will hold off this week

  12. 2397 with Goodes (sigh)

    Captain choice and Hodge cost me the win against first in our pool. Thought he’d dominate my team so saved a ruck upgrade and played Lobbe. Only went down by 30 which was Hodge, captain choice or not upgrading Lobbe.

    2 trades left and have Griffin and Newman. I’m a little stuck between going to Fisher and saving a trade for a sideways (injury) or going Newman to Adcock and seeing what ruck options I have with the cash and Griffin……

    Happy though….. 4th in my first season in my league was good given the trades I blew early…..

  13. 2549/Swan with Z Smith…. Pretty stoked to earn the bye in my cash comp which also takes my Enright/Selwood issue off the table. Got a feeling it’s my best score for the year, so no complaints here.

  14. 2338 in the end.
    Thought I was up for 3 losses but clawed my way back. Results were mixed.
    Results in 5 leagues:
    * Won- now for Prelims! (boss’ league. Could very well meet him in the GF)
    * Won- Prelims again.
    * Drew (SCT girls)- off to 2nd semi final
    * Lost- season over
    * Won- another 2nd semi final

    Happy.

  15. Looking like i’ll be at full strength this week as i don’t have any Geelong players. Petrie and A Swallow are both back for me too so got some tinkering to do in terms of my final line-up. It’s early days but i’m thinking NRoo (vs Syd) may play as my emergency with Mzungu (vs NM) and Dangerfield (vs GC) likely to score more. Early days, lots of thinking to be done. Thinking of keeping my two trades for another week where i may sideways trade Gibbs (he’s in backline but may cunningly trade my def/mid into a fwd/mid).

  17. Oh Boy. Where do I start.
    Main League: lost to my mate who I had smashed not 2 weeks ago and he got ultimate revenge and beat me by 67 points. When I needed captain Selwood to stand and deliver he choked and served up strudel! an easy 115 would have got me over the line after a lot of other things went wrong but NOOOOOOOOO! Like to give a big raspberry to Swan/Cyril/Captain Buddy and Houli for my mates team.

    Other Leagues:……………Who cares. I just wanted to beat my mate.

    Now I have Selwood and Stevie riding the pine and 1 trade to make the difference between seeing the Bastard in the Grannie or commiting Hari Kiri in utter shame.

  18. 2387/Swan – Lost my cash league elimination (6 vs 7) to the highest score of the round in the league so am out of that league now, only consolation is my mate had Enright, Bartel and Stevie J and is unlikely to survive the next round. Won my public league qualifying by beating the team who hadn’t dropped a round, so at least happy about that, so I get the week off and can go and recruit from Geelong in a fortnight.

  19. I have a man crush. The iceberg is ironically in sizzling form at the moment avg. 122 from the last 6 oh and that includes a juicy 172 for this week. It is no coincidence that my team has avg. 2482 over the last 5.

  22. S: 2445 OR: 6932 AVG: 2217.10
    Am safely through to the Prelim final in 2 leagues, and won both Elimination Final battles, so it is 3 Semi-Final encounters this week for the Slaves.
    Was fortunate to record victories over Whodathunkit in the SCT 16 Jets and Herculean BlueS in SCT 3.
    Am potentially looking at a Grand Final encounter with Motts, as we both progressed through to Prelim in the brutal-at-the-top ‘Not Mucking Around’ league. I only scraped through my battle with Mrs Motts by a measly 18 pts, whilst Motts prevailed over his opponent by 24.
    Have a very tough Semi-Final this week in SCT 3 against Venom who thumped me a few weeks ago.
    Will play the winner of Dragenblade & PA’s Stack of Mediocrity in the Prelim in SCT 16 Jets.

  23. Lost all 5leagues with 2248, if I had Judd Captain Over Goddard (C, VC)
    I would’ve won 4/5, 2nd chance in all i think though.
    Goddard won’t get the C again.

  24. Playing for a spot in the prelims and against my arch rival I thought I needed a risk so I put goodes as captain. Bad choice. Lesson learnt.
    Going into the final game i was 110 up, we both had chappy and he had selwood. I thought it was over.
    Luckly I scrapped throu to win by 22.

  28. 2311 – Horrible round for me with poor bench and captain choices robbing me of 150+ points.

    Double-chance losses in Supercoach Battle, SCT 16 Jets and my cashola league. Luckily won my SCT1 Elimination final so I’m still alive and kicking in everything.

    Also lost double-chance DT games in Supercoach Battle (by 1 point!) and SCT2. Luckily won my Elimination final in ‘The Mistress’ so, again, I’m still alive and kicking in everything.

    A happy week winning all finals and looking forward to the rest of the finals. I have no Cats, Blues or Bombers so am hoping that forward planning brings good scores in the remaining finals.

  32. I’ve stuck with Hodgey the last 2 yrs. When he’s on, it’s very satisfying n rewarding, when he’s not, it makes my blood boil.. Guess u can put Goodes & Boyd in that catergory..
