Score / Captain / Rank
Ugh, shocking. Just as my team was getting going RoMo and Bowes both down and out on 40s.
Going to cost me crucial trades to cover and set me back by 120~ points this week. Shame, because aside from Zerrett everyone else was pretty good – started Bont, Oliver and Laird, brought in Hall, RCD on field.
Not my year it seems, but great to see bAps and Emile still kicking ass, hats off Tony, Ross and king of the PODs Nato for seeing me off in our respective leagues and shout out to regulars Tom and Lisa for comfortably cracking 2240.
Enjoy your week, all.
Thought I was in a for fall in the rankings with Merret and Fyfe going well under average. Pleasantly surprised. Double upgrade this week to see if I can keep climbing.
Why do HH’s posts get so many thumbs down?
You’re probably imagining it.
Can say this week wasn’t too bad, but some of the rookies had a poor week an the field with 3 scoring between 40-50. 1 being Powell and looks like I’ll be saying goodbye to him this week.
I had a few cheapish premos with some 80’s this week but Merrett hurt with his 64 after coping a tag. Brodie Smith frustrated me with a 70 due to 8 turnovers which really hurt his score.
I can say I was extremely happy however with my Rd1 POD Hind finally making a large score of 127! Was also glad to see Daniel back scoring well as well as some rookies in Jordon and Flynn being around the tonne!
The way it seems this week is Dusty will finally make his way into the team after his previous low scores and lovely price drop. Unsure who else will make an entry though. Will be a bit of thought, that’s for sure!
2345 / Grundy / 10k (+5k)
Seems like a pretty big score this week considering the carnage with most teams. All POD’s fired – Jelly, Duncan, Brayshaw, Crisp fantastic. Got 400k to play with this week and 19 trades banked.
2204 / Gawn / 2353 (up 358)
Stuffed up my trades again but a good result anyway. Watching Jimmy Rowe rack up the touches was painful – never thought I’d be saying that today.
2211 / Gawn / 3179 ( up 562 )
8/8 League wins.
Very happy with my new recruits Poulter and RDC.
Looking at Clark and Kosi for Ridley and Dusty.
2293/Gawn/360 (up 307)
Feels good to go up the ranks with a double downgrade last week. Warner & Scott were my weak links this week and they are both going to be upgraded. So I’ll be have 3 Rookies on Field and Daniher who is scoring solidly 80+ lately.
2117/Gawn/6071 (down 789)
Won 7/10 leagues, slight drop in overall but still in top 100 of SCT group (just!).
Double downgrade this week to Poulter and Byrnes so pretty happy with that score. Holding on to Rowe and Kosi proved to be a good choice as they both made cash. Flynn at R3 was also a cash boost even if he doesn’t play another game.
Zerrett, CJ and Titch were my underperformers this week. Gawn as captain was not ideal but better than my VC Ziebell.
Ready for 1 or 2 upgrades next week with $330k in the bank.
2241 / Gawn / 18,962 (+31,413)
First week of winning all 10 league games so happy for the 1st time this season.
Could have been better if I’d fielded my double downgrades in Poulter & RCD instead of Powell & McNeil (traded out Rowe & Berry).
Unlikely to be trading this week as need to conserve my worrisome lack of trades, so hope my rookies can continue to increase in price ready for hopefully some upgrades come the byes.
Big drop of 2200 places this week is disappointing after slowly building into top 3000. Titch, Zerrett dudded, and looking like the CJ train is stopping.
Tex for Zorko was good, and Laird, Macrae and Gawn were ok , along with Jordan and Rowe again. Still have 21 trades so not throwing in the towel just yet.
horrid week. Lost in my league. Accidently forgot to put Poulter as emergency which costed me 66 points. Not happy. Still 19 trades left though and looking good as I have easy opponents for bye rounds. cheeky.
How do you see oppts that far ahead ?
I can only see three rounds in advance.
Absolutely horrible. 1,979 / Merret / 34,778 (Down 5,025)
Everything went wrong.
There’s always next week.
Zorko, Jelly, Brayshaw & Laird were the heavy lifters this week. Zerrett & CJ were the only real let downs, but there were a lot of others with just serviceable scores that added up to a just ok total. Still, managed to jump up 700 odd spots. Burning through trades like a 1970’s Cadillac through a tank of fuel though, and it doesn’t look like stopping this week
1930/Zerrett/Still in the top 30000
Anyone for tennis?……..
3 votes: Laird, Crisp, Ridley, May, Macrae, Walsh, Steele,, Jordon, Brayshaw, Grawndy, Zorko., Flynn
– 3 votes: Merrett, Mitchell, me for trading McGrath to Mitchell this week after McGrath has pissed me off since round 2. Powell, Ziebell, Impey, Warner, and myself for playing Scott and Mcreery ahead of Rowe.
Looking to send Warner out for Dusty this week. I’m tempted to turn Rowe into Heeney but have been burnt by Heeney too many times in the past. My other temptation is turning Kozi into Harmes, but that adds to May, Gawn, Jordon who I’ve already got from the Dees.
SC rule 101…..never trade premos sideways.
2180/Gawn/ 161 (down 14)
Stayed pretty much the same OA – Treloar, Mitchell and Merrett were under perfomers and feel Powell was mananged.
2279/Gawn/rank 2063, jumped up from 3213.
Double downgraded… cash in the bank for double upgrade this week.
2207 / Gawn / 386 (+23)
Nothing to write home about but happy to hold my overall rank after a double downgrade. Powell and Butts out this week for Steele and Dusty I think.
Slowly grinding my way up the ranks…
Got good cash gen and bye structure sooo hopefully that pays off in the long run but still a long way back.
2192 / Gawn / 214
Docherty, Satan and Walsh storming home on Sunday arvo really boosted the spirits.
Will look to bring in Dusty for a ridiculous $425k
2315 / Oliver / 27,343
Improved 40k in rank last 5 rounds – which tells you how I started -yuck!
Making traction, trying to hold on, but bleeding trades and haven’t looked at byes…..it’s only a game right?
2,222 / Gawn / 17.7k
After two shocking weeks (in which I dropped about 10k spots), this moved me in the right direction and I’m well positioned with 300k in the bank and 5 on-field rookies. Bring on the byes!
