  1. Sums up my mood!
    [crawling back with tail between legs].
    Not sure I should “let it all out” ever again.
    Probably deserve to lose everything this week.
    Have Priddis & Murphy v Boyd +40.
    Down to the wire!

  2. I think I’ve had enough with burgoyne’s perennial mediocrity. Swan was disappointing as capt and Cross and Higgins are struggling. Otherwise I’m pretty happy with the squad this week.

  3. Higgins scores 21 before getting subbed off and I’ve got Petrie and his 123 glaring at me from my bench mouthing the words “you idiot”.

  7. My lowest scorer was dal santo with 78. Was losing all weekend and won both games! Very happy with 2456. Still making big changes though. About time my team all clicked together. ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. 2437 with 15 players getting a ton, only real let down was Bob Murphy’s 35, what the? Bob? and I had Dugans lazy 92 on the bench I could have used instead Bob. Oh, and Swan as C as well.

  12. 2446 with wins across the board.
    Would be happier if Cross would make me less so. He’s been a really disappointing POD.

    Definitely not shattered! The stars and planets aligned this week for The Phat Side, except for Ward who obviously didn’t get the memo! B@stard!

    My ol man’s team ended up with 2663! :-O B@stard!!

  15. 2377 / Swan.
    Higgins, Grundy, Swan and Bartel, hold your heads in shame.

    Also traded in Sandi for Petrie this week.
    Sandi: Scores 113 and is likely out for a month.
    Petrie: Scores 128 and will go up another 20 – 30 thousand.

    Spewin coz I played tapscott ahead of krakouer and higgens instead of libba and lost in 2/5 leagues, both within 50 points. My mate next to me here is dancing all round the room after learning he’s now undefeated in our $50 league and rubbing in my losses.

  17. 2238, Sandi as capitan. Not the highest score in my league but a win all the same.
    last weeks heroes let me down this week – Fisher & Shaw, also Swan & Enright scoring a few more would have been nice.

    Happy with the rest, the premiums did their thing and my rookies (in particular Lower and Heppell) held up their end.

  18. 2565/Pendles, best score I’ve had in SC, though it looks like there are a few fighting it out around the 2600 mark. Hopefully this will push my overall ranking into the top 5000!

  19. 2262 & I feel like killing myself!!!!!

    Trade out Lower this week for Heath Shaw….. That went well.

    Higgins back in……. That went well.

    Very disappointed, with drop from 1200 overall, fingers crossed not too much!

    And worst of all, I lost my first match ever in my work league! Went undefeated last year, and so far this year….. My trash talking is gonna catch up with me!

  20. 2316/Swan and back to a triple figure overall for me.

    Won two of three leagues though and if I have to get beaten then I’m happy for it to be Crawf (not really).

    Wouldn’t have thought a 2300+ score could feel so underwhelming but after watching the mighty Hawks smash the Rubber Duckies today there’s still a smile on this Fish’s face ๐Ÿ™‚

    The captaincy poll will be very interesting this coming week…Won’t be as one sided as the week that past I bet….

  23. 2446. Montagna as C did great -was close to giving C to Swan on his debut. Still happy with Swan over outgoing Higgins 21!!
    Bob Murphy is excused even though Lower was Emerg.
    Possible trades in: Lynch (GC), Kennedy (WC), Jacobs (port)
    Possible trades out: Tapscott & L.Thompson (or possibly C.Knights)
    NOTE to Bailey of Frys United in the Foreigners League – get your team into shape as Grimes, Watson (C) & Hale playing but Goddard & Enright doing nothing on the pine is bringing the excellent league average down. If you’ve lost interest pass the team to someone else.

    Stoked that Gilbert and Duffield scored well as i brang them in last week and 2 weeks ago, for a very cheap price.

  25. 2353 With Swan as Captain and Grundy and Shaw tanking. Had Heppel on the bench in favor of Libba – cost me 40 odd points but not enough to lose.

    Anybody got any thoughts on a trade down for Tapscott? I am no overly keen on Lynch – He is a young key position player, but the fact that Mzunga was only a sub has caused a bit of concern.

  26. 2358 Swan with the C.
    I think next week should show if there is promise with Mzungu. Coming back early from an injury there was no doubt they would be easing him in to things.
    So glad I traded Higgins and have avoided that sinking ship.
    Reasonably pleased with my performance but by the looks of it a lot of people did way better.

  27. 2437 with Sandi as El Capitan. Only 2 real disappointments were Higgins on the field and Petrie off it and the fact that Sandi went off 4 minutes into the last Q and could have had a much bigger score for me to double. Here’s hoping that the man mountain is not going to miss any games.

    (it looks as though my score is shit compared to the rest that have come up already. It doesn’t matter how good you think you are there are … oh say about 5000 this week who will be better)

  28. 2481. A career best for me from memory. Not often that your second lowest scoring player was Dane Swan. Had him as captain so it could have been a 2500+… should move closer to the top 1,000 now ๐Ÿ™‚ And the mighty tigers won! What a weekend!!

  32. 79th this week. 1191 overall. I’ll take it!

    After the dizzying heights of this weekend, not looking forward to next round. The only way is down. I feel sick already. ๐Ÿ™

    The old man came 10th. Well done old fella!

    Brought the “Great Man” in this week and made him skipper. Having a horrid run with the “C” since Massive in Rd 1 with Chappy the past couple of weeks. Not complaining though as won 4/5 leagues and ranked ~7000.

    The best news if anyone didn’t see it though was the result over here today. Sorry to rub salt in the wounds PA but that was as clinical a performance as I’ve seen in the AFL from a wooden spoon side last year to a prelim side last year ever.

    Happy with that, , ranked in the 6000’s now ๐Ÿ˜€

    Enright a let down again and ryder, goodesy as a POD captain didnt really work but my plan b was boyd so that wasnt a massive difference. Good to see swanny spud it up, saving me dollars for when i get him in 4 rounds.

    Matty Wright is a jet!

  35. Scored 2431 and rose 1200 odd spots to break into top 3000. (2988).
    The plan that I had in place will probably be screwed now as Tappy is hamstrung, Sandi is under a cloud and Missy pretty much just stank it up so bad that even Eade couldn’t stand to watch it anymore. I’ve got Dish as backup for Sandi but may have to do something in the forward line? Decisions decisions.

  36. 2311, Cox

    Ended up just about where I thought I might before the last 2 games last night. Glad I made the right choice for my Captain this week, Cox was my highest scorer, just past Lower (unbelievable! who’da thunk it?). Won all 5 leagues. Will have to find a replacement for Tappy, and hoping Bartel can raise hell against the Dees this week, possible Captain- wait and see later in the week.

    Tipped 6 to bring me to 51.

    Pretty happy, but lost one of my leagues.

    Tapscott and Swan as captain destroyed any hopes of 2500+

  40. 2473 and still managed to get smashed by over 150 points in one of my leagues! Tough gig.

    Dirty on Bob Murphy from stopping my realise my dream of a 2500+ score.

    On the upside, back into the top 8 in SCT2.

    Won 4 out 5 leagues, both SCT games despite having Lower on the bench, Mundy as captain and Tappy’s Twenty. Ranked 8,173 for the round and am creeping up on the top 20,000 @ 21,662. Am looking to turn Tappy into Buddy. Still alive in my DT eliminator and wish it was a part of Super Coach. What do you all think?
    Anyway, I got my top score of the year & I’m happy.
