Weekend Review – NAB Cup GF

Written by Motts on March 15 2010

Western Bulldogs
S Higgins – 105 pts, midfield/forward DPP, $472k. Pretty damn convincing.
B Hall – Gave you another 101 reasons to block his brain fades from your memory.
R Murphy – Tempted us all again with an 83. Just remind yourselves he only played 13 games last year and averaged 66.62.
A Cooney – If you pay $484k for a bloke you expect more than 77 pts. This is on the back of a 62, an 84 and a 60. You’d have to either be a Bulldogs supporter, a family member, or a ‘ranga to be game enough to pick him.
D Cross – Has performed pretty consistently this year but the 70 pts he had on this night was his worst game so far.
T Williams – Last 2 games have returned 63 and 55. At $228k that makes him worthy of backline consideration.
B Moles – Must be considered for your midfield bench. In order from his first game to last night’s has scored 68, 77, 45 & 50. Watch to see if he gets named for R1.

St Kilda
N Riewoldt – Took some amazing contested marks. 113 pts. Man love.
J Blake – Had one out of the box and scored 101. Played 22 games last year – if you’re injury averse why not consider him and his 75 average for $400k?
B Goddard – Worth every cent of his $613,600 price tag. 99.
N Dal Santo – If you’re not going to Ablettise your midfield, I reckon you’d be giving this guy some serious thought. Averages 115 but scored 95 on this occasion.
J Gram – His 85 was enough for me to make some room for him in my backline. Again.
L Montagna – Didn’t crack the ton in the preseason scoring only 84 here proving once and for all that he’s overpriced.
S Gilbert – Got posterised by BBB all night. Had 72 DT points but only 45 SC points underlining again why SC is a better comp that truly reflects the contributions of the players to team objectives.
S Fisher – Twisted a knee/ankle early in the game leading to a -8 score. Wait to see how he recovers this week before pulling the trigger on him.

  1. Oh Barry, you are such a tease. It may result in a huge hangover and a massive dose of regret but I am extremely tempted to try this bad boy. However, brain fades aside, he is old and may be susceptible to injury, especially with his previously dodgy knee.
    Even with the high probability of longer term pain, the promise of some short-term highjinks has me mightily conflicted.

  2. I am on the Big Bad Barry Bandwagon – as you said, if he performs well for the start of the season the worse he’ll cost me is a draft pick – and if one of my rookies on the bench is performing well then I could upgrade Barry to a premium forward.

  3. Picking Barry Hall in my forward line (at the expense of Johno Brown) gave me the extra cash to pick Luke Hodge in the guts. Win, win.

  6. Hey boys!
    Since we are getting close to the opening bounce maybe we can all assess each other’s teams on the Rate My Teams thread to save time and Mottsy’s credibility???
    Happy to assist, Deano

  10. To Barry or not to Barry, that is the question…

    I’ve been firmly against Bazzafying my team. He’s just been one of those blokes, like Didak or Fev, who I just don’t select. I remember too clearly one night in 1999 in Icon Bar on Flinders Lane when he was hanging about on the next table, drank 37 vodka and raspberries and almost knocked out my mate.

    But I feel myself slowly coming around…
