  1. This is an interesting season for my Lions. Those Pies look mighty hungry still and we still lack the most essential type of player in this era, the big bodied explosive mid in the style of Dusty, Danger,De Goey… come to think of it maybe look under D in the draft box! Rayner plays that way but is too short. I also think that we’re just a little under par in the coaches box. Also I’m still having mares about that bounce in the last of the gf.. how you let Daicos and De goey go forward unchecked and at pace like that is still beyond me. Of all the players!!!! Best of luck for the season all and may your selections serve you well.


      1. Not if the fate of mankind depended on it Wighty!! I’m happy to let him deep six the Bombers hopes. Not my sc team this year either after I followed GD in last year. The horror


      2. Don’t the Doggies need a big bodied fwd at the moment?…… Oh wait, ….nuh, don’t worry about it, ……you’ve got to keep him now…..


  2. Does somebody know the “magic number” for this year?
    It will be very handy for planning sideways trades during early byes


      1. Thanks
        is this still the formula?
        Current price (divided by 4) (multiplied by 3) Plus (3game ave multiplied by magic number) divided by 4


      1. They stated shoulder assessment, was very quick though for him to be straight back out there


  3. Carlton were pathetic and it took great skill by the Lions to keep kicking it to them, dropping the ball and refusing to kick goals to get them over the line! Same old formulae by the bookies. Upset at the start of the round to destroy all the mullties and double up !


    1. Yeah. Ash.

      Standard CBA mix for the Lyons otherwise: Neale and Dunks up top, Cluggers chopping between OB and wing, Rayner in for a bit and Lyons on what would be Ash’s 3rd load.


  4. Can’t help but think round 0 has just helped everyone out of bad picks, myself included!
    Wonder if a double game round like BBL SC would of been more interesting. but we probably would of had an extreme case of cookie cutter teams.
