Who’s on-the-nose in 2010?

Written by Big Sexy on April 21 2010

Well with the 2010 season well and truly under way, who do you think is the biggest stinker in 2010?   Here’s my top 3:

Number 3)  Kurt “Big-Bucks” Tippett has to be high on the list, after taking cash and long term contract to stay away from the GC, he’s looking more like he’s ready to retire in the GC with all the cash he just pocketed rather than play another decent game….. Tippett has dropped $124k and has a huge average of 35!!!!!  If you have him listed as a forward, I have two words for you ‘Trade Time’.  The only reason he wasn’t number 1 is that I’m cutting him some age-slack.

Number 2)  Ryan “Hangover” Hargrave was one of the SC Champions last season, whose scores scored high, along with his price tag.  This season, Hargrave is either hungover from their world beating NAB Cup victory, or hungover from his great season in 2009.  Either way, his price drop of $117k and his very average, average of 56 has landed him the number 2 position.

Drum roll…..

Number 1)  SC retard of 2010 so far is Sam “I must have done hammy to play this bad” Mitchell.  Now we all know Sammy is a gun footballer…. But his last 3 scores of 67, 59 and 64 are dismal for one of the premier midfielders in the comp.  His price has surprisingly only dropped $107k to $468, and only saved by his 107 in round 1.  Sam Mitchell gets the Round 4 raspberry from The BS!!!!! 

If you have any of these blokes…. Tippett I would trade, Hargrave I would wait another week or two before I pulled the trigger….. and Mitchell believe it or not I would hang on to, as I’m 100% confident he will turn it around if his hammy doesn’t snap or his heart muscle doesn’t twang.

Also, these are the blokes to watch if you want to pick up a bargain, particularly if you think they will turn it around, hence why I will be looking very closely a Mitchell and Goodes over the coming weeks.

Tell me what you think, who’s the biggest spastic in your team so far? 

I tried to not just pick on new kids or Ruckmen who have all had average starts (Big Sandy excluded).

  1. I have Mitchell and Im tempted to trade but will give him another week against the kangas UNLESS someone can convince me otherwise. Tippett was traded 2 weeks ago – thank god!

  4. Yeah I drop punted Tip Top (can we get that as an ironic nickname to match up against Nic Nac? Just sayin’…) early.

    Now I only have mild concerns in under-performance: Ziebell, T Cloke and even R Murphy (17 pts on the weekend? Fo’ real?)

  6. unfortunately i started the year with tip put, mitchell and ziebell. tip put is gawn now after carrying him for 3 weeks but haging on to mitch and jz. although their not setting the world alight, not sure their worth the trade yet either. mitchell especially i think ill back in. the hawks have had a tough draw so far with the exception of melb (when he got 107) so hopefully he can start to pick it up when the hawks start playing the richmonds of the world.

  7. I Culled Mitchy after his unexplainable effort against the pussies in round 2, he had over 30 touches and only scored a dismal 64. But then I went though his stats and notice had didn’t lay one tackle all day, didn’t get much contested poses and the clinger was his 7 clangers. I ended up trading him for Goddard and haven’t look back.

  8. Hey Wiz, I’d suggest if your going to dump ball, you either upgrade to swan/gaj/dal, or cash in and get a rookie. No point getting a 400k player who’s only gona give you 70-90.

  9. Waaa? Why Waite and Thorton to miss again?? Surely we need them against the Cats!!

    My biggest dissapointment this year so fat has been T Lockyer!! Had him last year and served me so well, thought he would be rock solid again but has been hopeless. Not even scoring well when Collingwood are thumping a team. Need to trade him but gonna give him another week!

  10. Motts,

    You say nice pick up for Pods but what are the Rookie elevation rules?
    Can anyone give me more info on this as Mitch Brown is back in 2-3 weeks & hence Pods cant play anymore games or can they swap him for Steven Motlop??

  11. Might be a noob question but if a player doesn’t play the last quarter like Mitchel, does there SC points go down or stay the same??
    And btw, Mitchel lost too much money now for me to trade him, gunna ride out the storm hoping breaks even in the coming weeks.

  12. i have both ball and mitchell in my midfield and wnat to get rid of both. I’m thinking about trading out ladson for schmitt to free up cash then get rid of either ball or mitchell for riscitelli. then the following week get rid of the other with the left over cash. should i trade out ball or mitchell with his dodgey hammy this week??? and is this overall a good or bad idea??

  15. Nope. so my idea is trade ladson for schmitt to free up cash. then i have like 650k to trade out ball for either (haven’t decided yet) Swan, Dal Santo, Murphey or Simpson. then next week trade mitchell for riscitelli or somebody better if i have spare cash

  18. As strange as it sounds, I traded out Ball for Sidebottom.. he is looking the goods and getting plenty of the pill, so with any luck his price will go up and also give me the points 😉
