(Our thanks to regular commenter and good mate kb for putting this together. If anyone has a good idea for an article let us know and we’ll happily have a look at it).

This is not a common term in fantasy footy circles (in fact, I just made it up) but the phenomenon that it describes is no stranger to us hapless coaches. Duck mentioned in an earlier blog that he was refusing to select Buddy Franklin because of past disappointments. Well, if Duck proceeds with this policy, he has the potential of suffering a double burn as per the (now) official definition:

The Double Burn: when a player you have been burnt by before and therefore refuse to pick,

Only The Brave

Who are the blokes you’re going to include in your team this year that you consider the biggest risks? I’m not talking about GAJ “coz his price is enormous and may drop”. I’m talking about blokes like Rusling, Kennelley, and Ladson with their history of injuries. Or maybe, like me, you’re prepared to roll the dice on Barry Hall’s ability to keep his cool.

Let me know your thoughts.

Weekend Review – Hawks v Dogs

Written by Motts on 7:16 am, March 1 2010

Hawthorn

S Mitchell – With a 111 he’s staked his claim as an elite middy you can’t ignore. Certainly put himself in front of Sewell who only had a 68.
J Kayler-Thompson – Rookies who score 95 will always get my attention. Shame we won’t get to see him again next week after the Hawks got thumped.
R Schoenmakers – this cheap defensive option managed a 66.
C Peterson – caught my eye with some flashy play in the 2nd and 3rd quarters. Came off in the 4th but not before scoring 62.
