2058 with Boyd and Dahlhaus still left.

Disappointed i didnt have ablett, and nick reiwoldt + goddard really let me down 🙁

A_OKeefe · 18/06/2012 at 06:17

Hargrave killed me. Won 4/5, but lost the 2nd most important league by about 30pts.

Steelo · 18/06/2012 at 06:19

Thanks for the opportunity to chat, Jock – another surprisingly good week with 6 donuts, wins in all leagues again to make it 2-for-2 in bye-time .. but next week will be a wipeout. Happy with NicNat and Scotland who set the tone for the weekend. Do you reckon 11 trades will be enough for the run home?

Snudz · 18/06/2012 at 06:20

5 BIG DT wins this week. Great to be back on the podium.

Lachie · 18/06/2012 at 06:21

Only have 8 trades left.

Gablett killed it, and Zorko my man dominated.

How many trades should people be sitting on ?

    Benny.. · 18/06/2012 at 08:20

    Shit iv got 7 left!

      kyle · 20/06/2012 at 05:47

      i got 3 :3

Paul · 18/06/2012 at 06:22

1494 before the results of Port against the Dogs.

My Nemesis did the VC Loop Hole on Me with Priddis and Smedts as the Captain.

I stuck with Gaz as the Big C and Happy with the Score.

Still went down, but in ok shape.

Thanks for all the hard work Jock.

As for "Molding the Clay" I hope he gets a full game soon.

Rossi · 18/06/2012 at 06:23

A solid 2208 with no Gaz!

Marc · 18/06/2012 at 06:39

1968 with 5 donuts. Had to play some benchers like Jenkins, Milera and Smith who only scored in the 30's. Almost pulled the partial lockout trick and had Priddis count as my C score. Lucky I didn't as Ablett tore it up. I'm 2 for 2 in league wins during the bye, which is good as I set up my side to tank round 13 to maximize my scores during rounds 11 and 12.

Hey Jock,

So many people complaining about the bye rounds but it has been fantastic for our leagues. I lost (2nd) playing 15th, but 4 out of the top 5 lost to bottom 6 teams. Keeping the others interested instead of having the same people winning each week. Scored 1731 (no GAJ) which was good enough for 4 out of 5.

    Dylan · 18/06/2012 at 09:23

    I hear ya! Last week I went down to a bottom 5 team, I was third. This week was my league leader's first loss, and my biggest rival had a loss (to his wife! Their teams are so similar…) which has allowed me to jump in to second place. Looking good for the run home though! 10 trades left, 450k in the bank, want to get waters in this week, playing the league leader this week, she is two games ahead, gotta claw one back! She has waters too though…

Jason · 18/06/2012 at 06:52

Finished on 2339 this week with only Rhyce Shaw out and Treloar scoring 7.

feltch · 18/06/2012 at 07:08

guy in my league scored 2668! can anyone beat that?

got 1849 won only one league but it was my most important one 😀

    Westy · 18/06/2012 at 07:57

    WOW!!!!! Hope they score some cash for that effort!

NigeyS · 18/06/2012 at 07:08

Top scored in my league this round with 2123. That included Treloar's 7 and a donut from Waters. Pity I took on 16th in my league, could have toppled a contender.

The big problem now is strategically using my remaining trades. I've only got 7.

Fitzy · 18/06/2012 at 07:11

2534 – set myself for this week and hope that not many others did. Bad captain choice in Cotchin – should have gone Nic Nat or Gaz. Sitting back and waitng now

    Marc · 18/06/2012 at 07:52

    Lordy, 2534 without Ablett as C is impressive. You could have probably won the round if you had him set as captain.

Doddy · 18/06/2012 at 07:31

With 5 big round ones and 5 leauge wins, i'm pretty happy with my 1900, and looking forward to next week when i will have coverage, no round 13 tank for this fella!!

Chris · 18/06/2012 at 07:37

Had VC as big cox and he scored 132 but forgot to change my captain to a non scoring player.. Had danger field as captain which sucked! If I changed my captain would've won 4/5 leagues but ended up losing by 13 points to 5th..

    Chris · 18/06/2012 at 07:39

    Boomer was a handy pick up this week!

Ben · 18/06/2012 at 07:50

2395 mate

    Jake · 18/06/2012 at 08:57

    quit braggin

John · 18/06/2012 at 07:52

Scored about 1950… not bad considering I only traded Mohr – S. Shaw and won the leagues I'm most interested in.

I'm more focused on the finals than the byes so it's smiles all-round

Rudders · 18/06/2012 at 07:59

My team Purple Dreams was ranked 40th overall before this week…had a very pleasing score of 2,349 ( Ablett and Nic Nat my 2 heroes ) and hoping that will be good enough to get back up near the top 10…I peaked at 3rd a few weeks ago…fingers crossed.

    Doddy · 18/06/2012 at 04:16

    Nice going, I’m still pretty green in this game but did get to the top 2500, but round 11 put me back. What ever your doing keep it up!!

      Rudders · 18/06/2012 at 20:33

      Thanks for that Doddy..I have been playing for many years now and obviously this is by best ever year. This community and Jock's podcast is not only witty and entertaining but very helpful. ( Thanks Jock, Higgo and Crouching ) Being in with a realistic chance of winning is not as much fun as you may think. It's nerve racking!! 🙂

      Rudders · 18/06/2012 at 20:34

      Update to my ranking…now ranked 5th GULP!!!

Chris · 18/06/2012 at 08:31

Will pendlebury and Heath shaw be right for next week

    Jake · 18/06/2012 at 08:56

    i second this will heath shaw and beau waters be right this week? and when is morris suppose to return

      Dylan · 18/06/2012 at 09:29

      Waters was suspended, so should play this weekend. Waiting to hear on Shaw as well

        Dylan · 18/06/2012 at 09:33

        And pendles. But I only have one spot left in my mid for a premium, and I think my whole league has pendles, so got my eyes on Nicky dal, even though pendlebury will probably score higher…

Dave · 18/06/2012 at 09:07

2020. Win in all 5 leagues. Top 4 in all.

How many trades do you think is best to set yourself up for a final run. Have 12 with 150k

Dylan · 18/06/2012 at 09:56

How are finals going to work this year? It looks like top eight as per usual, but what about bottom 10? Will the bottom two teams simply miss out? And its the top 4 that get the second chance, right? Or is it top two?

Matt · 18/06/2012 at 10:40

I had my second draw in my super coach career in my most important league

Fitzy · 18/06/2012 at 18:57

my 2534 got me 81st for the week. As I said above, my goal this year was to try and win a week. Bad captain choice probably made the difference as did bad games from N and J Riewoldt. It was worth a go as a strategym particularly with the bye rounds and all the sides like Collingwood, Geelong, Sydney,Ess out in the same week. Biggest mistake in the lead up was trading in Waters kast week for Scotland not realizing the suspension and that Scotland would be back this week. Only got 3 trades left now but at least my side is full amd fit. Next time
