THE STANDING ROOM Round 9

Published by Patch on

This is more of a sitting room this week.

We’re all sort of sat here, in stunned silence, unsure of what exactly is going on.

It’s a stunning performance from Meghan Markle on debut. She’s pulled out a 300 point debut, with seasoned veteran Queenie having a stinker and… I’ll just drop it. I don’t know anything about the royals, and the sooner we can elect Jack Macrae as our head of state the better.

I’m not just saying that because I picked him out at the start of the season as a top eight mid when most scoffed at me. I thought top eight was pushing it. I didn’t quite expect… well, this.


This will be a round of two scores: those who captained Macrae who are in line for a big one, and those who didn’t – and subsequently aren’t.

A lot of guns stinking it up this week – Gray, Coniglio, Menegola, Gablett, Fyfe – Nat mate, what’s going on here? – and, of course, it wouldn’t be a standing room without shouting at Jack Billings.

Even wunderkid Tim Kelly had a poor round, which is rough considering the performances he’s put in so far this season, but it stings a little bit more with Holman’s 120 on the bench, tantalisingly out of reach.

Aside from Holma, The Bud is back and he’s also BACK, Jake Lloyd is having a blinder, and so begins the two week contemplation of if we go to Rockliff.

How are you travelling, community?

Fyfe adding 40 in the last giving a bit of respectability to what could have been a very ugly score from the Great Man-Bunned One

Russty_

Hey guys, travelling pretty well actually this week, some nice surprises in my scores this week, as it stands, predicted for over 2300 fingers crossed, maybe I'm doing something right after all?…hahah..and Fyfe ended up not terrible which is a bonus, even though his team was.

Jack

I've been trying to think who D6 is for a while now but boy oh boy did they all stand up today.
Howe, Lloyd, Ryan…even Tuohy. Maybe 2 of these guys will be in top6
Fwiw I have top5 Laird, Yeo, Sicily, Simpson, Hurley

JugHead

He isnt fashionable this year, but I'd still throw Rance into that mix. Plenty will disagree.
Quietly scored over 90 5 times this year and hasn't dropped any absolute turds. Current price is 462k and ranked 8th best defender.
In 9-10% of teams and can ton up.

JugHead

8th by total points. 12th by average.

Jack

Agree Jughead, Rance should be in there too purely on the fact that he's been there before and has a big ceiling

Randomcliche2

Swing Sicily forward and take both Howe and Lloyd in that order. Not Tuohy, nor Savage who is on my team :-/. I agree with your other top 4.

Whatyasmokin

Agree based on current stains in the forward line, Sicily needs to be there and load up the defense with the proven reliables.

Finnius

So glad that I picked Jezza Howe at the start of the season. Top 6 defender last year and I was shocked that he had such a low ownership.

DANGER1VDUSTY2

The StKilda football side suck footballs! They don't play football, they play handball – disgusting losing brand of footy!

JohnDJ59

Going about the same as I have since round four, which is not very well, averaging 2,135 this year and that will be close to my weekends score, so far my best score is sitting on the bench and my best on field scores are by the two players I brought in this week Danger and Grundy, so looking at another wipeout of a weekend.

Sandyf62

I think most of us had Holman on the bench John, plus it's turning into a who has Macrae v who hasn't, the ones without him ie me will fall further behind.

JohnDJ59

Right on both counts Sandy, if we had still been able to have him as a fwd/mid like last year, he would have been my first picked in my fwds, but being only a mid, I had to pass, as I thought there were too many ahead of him as a pure midfielder. One of the few times I haven't had Holman on the field, but I brought Danger in this week, so that I would only have one rookie (Kelly) on field in the mids, bad timing on my part. Holman's 122 is still my best score at the moment, so annoying that I couldn't use it.

Sandyf62

Not as annoying as just bringing in Yeo to cover the loss of Hurley, who I have sitting on the bench, who I only brought in a few weeks back and I'm already low on trades due to trades to cover injures.

JohnDJ59

It all worked out in the end Sandy, Yeo scored you 113 pts, I will be getting him in for next weeks round, was thinking about him for this week, but decided I needed Danger first.

Stirlsy

Treloar the spud bring him in and sure enough he bombs.
I may as well have left JOM on the ground.
Or paid the extra 70k and taken Macrae, just paying 675k for a player in round 9 was thought to be a silly move now im felling a bit silly.

Whatyasmokin

Agree, especially as treloar was highly likely to bleed with a 150be. Ah well live and learn.

Patch

Of bloody course he has. Really rate him as a pick this year mate – he should reward you on the run home

nvol

If dusty doesn't score 120 this week I will be one depressed man.

theRealPod

He's due (overdue) for a big one. Big game today!

PeteB

Ed Phillips disappointing..is he still a downgrade option ? Definitely time to move on Finlayson & Murray for one up and one down.

DANGER1VDUSTY2

Yes (he's ok but nothing special) I brought him in this week. Midfields are being upgraded now anyway so he will only be a M10 who earns cash averaging 60's. Holman earned a reprieve at M9 so I will keep him longer now and Naughton/Murray hit the chopping block this week.

Whatyasmokin

68 Average is reasonable going into his third game. 49 is not the worst low a rookie has given this year and at 123k you cant expect any more than that realistically.

TRIGGA_HAPPY

Geez gettng smashed all kinds of silly this week.
Rooks on ground – killers
Traded out 200 points typical. Yeo better go huge 2mrw.
Once doodee made his break even Friday night knew i was in for a tough ride
There is always 2mrw. <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="😲" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.4/svg/1f632.svg"&gt;

Jeffrey

Who to Captain – Gawn or Titch?

Whatyasmokin

Gawn

Frank

Titch

theRealPod

Titch out of those two. Gawn up against Kruz today.. Personally I'm going Dusty, I reckon he'll smash it today.

Ahmad rubas

first bye next week hows everyone bye structure looking for main bye rounds

Patch

Important question here Ahmed! I've been keeping half an eye on the byes with trade ins – Cripps and Yeo headlining that, so i'm looking okay! How about you?

Ahmad rubas

well done on keeping half an eye on it cause i certainly havent been my current team has only 15 players for round 13 oops

Big L

Fyfe 5Rd Avg. 126 and toned up not to upset.

Big L

Kelly to rocky after ports bye

BlueBaggerJosh

Yep

Randomcliche2

Locked in.

Patch

I'm very excited by this prospect

Whatyasmokin

Hmmm

SC_Sixty6

Each week I grow to hate what Macrae is doing to SC. Not even GOAT Ablett did this in his prime. 174 3 round avg IS ridiculous because he doesn't deserve it…..not just because I didn't start him but purely the stats don't stack up.

The people that have him move ahead especially with VC and that's what makes it disappointing.

Two weeks time the smart people will make Kelly into Rocky and the people that need to make up ground will trade pods in to make a surge for the top tier. It's a long season so I hope for the that the top 10 fall from grace hard to make it interesting.

Moral of the story it's about Macrae this year for who did and didn't start him or have him. Another top 100 finish for myself and wow coming up and the difference in points between top ten and us is Macrae. Yuck.

Jack

A top 10 SC coach would have identified Macrae as a must have, not necessarily at the start of the year, but definitely after the Carlton game. Thats what separates the best from the next best it seems.

I didn't catch to much of the game Friday night but going of raw stats I'd say he had some game.
Has a player ever had 36 possessions and not a single clanger? 22 of his 36 were contested! Add to that 14 tackles. That is some game, you gave to admit

Sc_Wow

Those stats are incorrect though. Definitely didn’t have 14 tackles and they were very kind not giving him a Clanger

Help me

I watched the vast majority of this game and macrae was streets ahead of every one else on the ground… efficient, contested player who racks then up… doesn't kick backwards and tackles well
Im not surprised at his score and i certainly don't think he gets the love of cd as much as other players in the past
If danger or bomt had a game like that last yeah it would of been 200+

Sc_Wow

You’re delusional mate. He’s averaging more than Gaz and Danger in their prime. To say he has just as much influence on games as those guys did is ridiculous

Help me

I actually never said that mate, or maybe I wasn't clear enough in what I said… if danger was the one playing in that game and has those exact stats he woukd have scored 200+… we have all seen games were the numbers don't seem to add up but at the end of the day he was the most influential player on the ground and a night were there was points to go around
Am I for one second saying he is influencing games as much as ablett or danger in their prime, definitely not… I find it funny how you's are sour on 1 player who just so happens to be going apeshit in sc and you's don't have him
If danger does the same thing next week will you complain??? Highly unlikely

Sc_Wow

So you’re saying Macrae got under scored?

What I’m saying is he’s averaging more than a prime gaz and danger and I don’t think it’s deserved.
We can agree to disagree

Help me

It's quite clear what I'm saying mate…
I'm saying he was the best played on the ground and got a great score
You're saying he was over scored just like many in the past say bont and danger were… swings and round abouts

Do you think he will continue on with this scoring and finish with a higher average than gaz in his prime or danger last year??? I can't see it happening but if you do i suggest you find some coin for him otherwise the road to #1 has some serious traffic

Boris_Baconbeer

Totally agree with you Help! I think they missed a few stats. He was everywhere in everything. It was his team mates that kept turning it over not McCrazy.

zerowins

Simple answer is get him in and apply for a job at champion data if you believe those stats are incorrect and could do a better job yourself

Patch

We've seen Danger and Gaz go through periods where they've averaged 160-170 over three games, and they'vr both pulled in high 130s averages over a season.

Even Goddard and Deledio did back in the day.

He's had an easy run of games and conditions suited him to a T on Friday. As much as I hope he does, I don't think he keeps it up – as you've said, surely he can't.

I assume you won't look to bring him in unless his price drops?

PizzaSafety

Do you believe in the 9/11 conspiracy as well? You do realise they provide these stats to sides live during games and afterwards for money and CD guys with binoculars monitor the stats in every match. They might make the odd error but to suggest bias purely on stats in silly. Bont bias makes sense because the stats weren't there but they were for Macrae.

Breakthrough

Do you believe in what they tell you about 9/11? If you do then you're misinformed.

Dr Judy Wood

PizzaSafety
Errol

They can only give him points off how many stats the offical afl stats give hi

BVB21

I have to say I think this will be my last season of SuperCoach.

The scoring is ridiculous.

Macrae getting overscored.

Ronke 7 goals, 10 tackles , 120?

Even last night Webster was overscored massively.

Totally agree with wow too about what he said about macrae averaging more than GAJ and Dangerfield in their prime. It’s a joke.

Dangerfield is also getting massively overscored this year as well.

Sc_Wow

Yep just looked at Webster’s stats, doesn’t add up does it?
Feel like there is some sort of extra attention being given to players ‘inform’

DavidSA

I get annoyed with sc when this happens – example:
My Murray (DT 71 SC 56) vs My mates Geary (DT 63 SC 87)
Fun fact Geary (frees 0/4) "🤔
This is my problem Also Jelwood getting outscored by Stringer lmfao

JEL

Are you looking at the difference between SC & DT scoring?

Check out the rules section for each, SC has double the number of things it uses to award points, and a lot more options to score negative points.

Plus there are differences in the number of points awarded for the same thing, ie a goal in SC = 8pts while in DT = 6pts.
eg Geary in SC loses -4 pts for @ FA, while only -3 pts in DT.

There is no point comparing the 2 scores.

DavidSA

Nah was just pouring fuel on this fire

JEL

Why are people so upset about Ronke's score?
7 goals = 56 points
10 tackles = 40 points

That's all he did on the night.
The only extras are 2 kicks, 2 handballs and 2 marks + 3 clangers.

Seams 120 is pretty reasonable.

Whatyasmokin

They are upset with a scoring system they don't understand, happens year after year and people like me just bang my head against a wall.

theRealPod

A good tradesman doesn't blame the tools if a mistake is made.

Boris_Baconbeer

I cant help it. I have to ask. Was it bad luck not to have picked up McCrazy earlier or bad strategy?

Rivo

Which 3 are best to have on field today?

Pertacca, Fritsch, Higgins, Spargo?

theRealPod

Fritsch, Higgins, Spargo

Rivo

Higgins out, Spargo kept on the mid bench, has to take Henry’s 56. Kind of a nil all draw.

BoltonsBlues

1531 with NicNat, Titch, Dusty, Cripps, Fisher, Gawn, Sprago, Sicily, Fristch to go, hopefully the kids can belt out a decent score and the premos can return to their big scoring ways (looking at your Titch and Dusty)

Lloyd, Ryan and Macrae all coming in hot this week!

$338k for upgrades next week, liking the look of Tuohy for Finlayson or should i just go to uber premo in Simpson/Hurley/Yeo?

Stretch Marks

Yeo

Randomcliche2

I've ridden the toot Tuohy train before and it doesn't get you places fast. Go uber premo.

James

Put the C on Titch, Cripps or Gawn?

Randomcliche2

I went Gawn. Lowest downside risk for mine.

Patch

Titch for mine. Gawn's never gone massive against Kreuz before. Cripps not a bad choice though.

TOPHAWK1

No whispers on Nank yet community? The prick better play, or else I will get in my car and drive to Optus stadium to give the Nank a personal spray!!!

theRealPod

I still say he'll play. Nank is a Tank!!

Ja191

He’ll play th, soldo played in the vfl

TOPHAWK1

Thanks boys!!! Soldo didnt even make the trip across then! Nank the tank should play then. Still be nervously hovering around the late changes announcements at 1.20 pm Perth time mind you. Fingers crossed.

Boris_Baconbeer

The Crazy McCrazy poll.

Was it:
1. Bad luck not to have picked up McCrazy earlier?
2. A bad strategic decision not to have picked up McCrazy earlier?

VOTE NOW HAVE YOUR SAY!! 😀

I think it was a good move and I have been very lucky it is paying off.

Mick

I brought him in at $596k and was tossing up between he or Dusty. Got lucky. Hoped he keep the 115avg he had at the time, never dreamt he go so huge 4 weeks running. Likewise I watched the game and can’t agree with those who say he was over scored, had 25 contested posies, in pouring rain, at 72% eff. All the other mids who had high possession counts went around 50%. Kids a star, let him shine

theRealPod

You didn't vote. Which do you think, 1 or 2?

Boris_Baconbeer

Well if i had to choose, since I am one who did pick him up, I'd say I was lucky. So 1.

I had Crouch and had to swap to someone else. I chose Crazy over Oliver, Cripps and Zorko (So lucky). That was week 3. Chose because I wanted POD. Had to catch up from my worst start ever.

But I could have chosen a complete tard I suppose so wasn't a total random luck event.

theRealPod

You chose Macrae over Oliver & Cripps after Crouch went down, excellent selection.

BTW I vote 2. I don't have him and I only have myself to blame. The signs were there early and I did have him last year (sigh) so I knew he could go the next level. I guess listening to the advice on this site can have a detrimental result at times, chasing Dusty, Oliver etc. instead of the bleeeeeding obivous!

DavidSA

I would say 1) bad luck
Reason is history shows not to chase points in this case "a rare one" it was wrong not to chase points
It's not like he went crazy in his first 5 games and the 141 against the Blues was his 3rd score over 130 pts out of 6 games. After that his next 3 have been insane 189, 156, 177 – 100% of people would not have seen that coming.

Simple way to put it if he scored 149, 116, 137 he would not be talked about as much as he is now

theRealPod

Well said David.

DavidSA

Cheers mate

Patch

Well said mate. As someone who started him I'm pinching myself. Was expecting 115-120 average and a solid POD, not 174 over three rounds.

Argument to be made that people could have picked a soft run coming up but I'd be tickled pink if anyone expected the run to be quite this good

TOPHAWK1

Murray and T Kelly are the two rooks on the chopping block for me this week. It would give me close to a million bucks to go shopping. Looking at Ryan down back for Murray, and TKelly for ?? Any suggestions? It wont be Macrae……darnit. He will have to wait. Can afford Dustin Martin?

AuroraBorealis?!

You'd probably want to see him score very well against WCE before bringing him in, but then again its Dusty, so maybe you can just count on him turning his form around

TOPHAWK1

Exactly. Dusty is Dusty and he will come good alright. Going into today with a BE of 162 and even if he produces a modest score of around 100 today, I can snaffle him for $500K. That is a gift. Rocky straight after his bye at $375K is starting to look very tasty too.

AuroraBorealis?!

I didn't manage to catch the game yesterday because, well, f*ck watching port v GC in china. Can anyone tell me if Rockliff is looking the goods again? He scored pretty decently but did he look like the contested beast of old? Kelly to Rocky after his bye is looking enticing

theRealPod

nǐ hǎo. I was listening to the game was easy to get distracted. I have Robbie Gray so was frustrated.

Rocky is improving and at his price will be tempting but I can't go there with his injury history, look what happened with Lids.

AuroraBorealis?!

Yeah good call, ill wait to upgrade kelly to an actual premo i think

JugHead

His injury history is a worry, but he played 20 games last year which isnt bad.
I'm gunna find it hard to pass on him for two main reasons.
His potential scoring vs his current price looks very good.
He is very bye friendly, and the dpp will make him extra useful.
If he stays healthy he will be a cheap, good quality M9. Also, if it turns sour you only have 375k sitting on the bench. Some of the standard cows are approaching that price.

Derek

You are far too modest Patch. A lot like the great Jock Reynolds himself.

Sure you could sit here and remind everyone that you identified Macrae for a breakout year, and you had the guts to put that out there for all the world to mock and laugh at you, but no, you don’t need to do that. And you certainly don’t need to remind everyone of your rank based on starting with Macrae, because that isn’t the type of bloke you are. Your a humble ‘uman bean, and deserve all the akola, arkolad, accoladde…. recognitions that are coming to you from this great community.

Thanks Patch, thanks fellas.

Neil demons delight

Could'.t agree more Derek . I know of one other too who is well up and modest but one hell of. a player and the same deal with Macrae

Whatyasmokin

👍

Ando

Put the C on Oliver or Titch?

Ja191

Oliver, won’t get tagged and don’t seeing him going under 110 at worst. Still not confident in titch

Mick

with no Ed Curnow you’d think Oliver would be a lock for 120+

Beezneez

Ive gone Gawn opponents have Titch but no Oliver. Changing c to Oliver. Will Titch get the Robertson tag?

r_calve

maybe but robertson might not do mutch cos the umps are on to him after getting suspended for the 50th time

Beezneez

Changing Gawn to Oliver was a good move – NOT!

David

Is it silly to try to bring in Macrae before next round?

theRealPod

I would if I had the cash.

r_calve

he is will be way over 700k by the end of next roud so wait for him to get a bad score

KSinny

Vc Oliver, Cripps or Gawn? If my Vc doesnt produce should i stick the C on Titch or Dusty?

DavidSA

I like Olive VC and C Mitch

Derek

I like Oliver, but not sure how Viney will affect him. But it is Carlton.

Mike

Standing ovation billings standing ovation 21 touches and 1 goal and still cant get 80 omg . Xac dawaon scored better than you

Mike

ZAC

DavidSA

I'm having a POD spud week Shaw 54 and Mundy 83
Also Gray being fwd is a worry Rockliff looks relevant after his bye for cash gen, bye cover and bail out card for Billing owners.

DavidSA

can add Hogan to that list too by the looks of things. I'm going to my cave now

Steeeve

Had planned to bring in dusty for Kelly next week. If dusty doesn't produce a ton today it's very tempting to wait and grab rocky. Ride him through the byes.

DavidSA

Make coin picking Rockliff for the trade alone and also make up to 150k if he can keep pumping out 90-100 scores while scoring his trade mark 150 some time

JugHead

Agree. I was going to bring Dusty in for Kelly too. But I see Rocky as a higher priority, seeing as Dusty hasnt turned his form around yet. The people who have waited on Danger with the same approach haven't been burnt (yet).

Corey

Cripps or Gawn as captain today?

Trades

70 points + Simpson, Fritsch & Nank
Vs
Cripps, Hogan, Christensen & Higgins

DavidSA

Think your done bro

Trades

Should I trade Nank to Kruez or nic nat?

DavidSA

Nah no way would you sideways for league reasons

DavidSA

Btw strange things can happen, a spud score from Higgins or Christensen is possible

Trades

Indeed they do… He had no back-up won by 14

TommyC99

Gawn, Dusty or Titch captain community?

r_calve

gawn

DavidSA

Gawn out of those 3

BundyBear

Spargo or Higgins ? any suggestions ?

DavidSA

Spargo over Higgins because of the difference in degree of difficulty they face

BundyBear

Thankyou for the advice

r_calve

sparg will have a feast agianst carlton while higgins is playing te next best team

r_calve

should i upgrade tim kelly to danger this week

or murray to a better defender

BundyBear

I didnt start with Danger. Am gona wait another week for him. Just isnt doing it at the moment. His BE is slowly coming down though

Holty01

My captain choice was between Gawn Cripps and Titch. The way this game has started, i better hope Titch scores big.

Russty_

I went Oliver over Gawn, looking like a mistake so far, nothing can stop Gawny.

Ja191

except for that 50m penalty lol

theRealPod

You gotta be happy with Titch's 52 1st quarter?

AuroraBorealis?!

Hmm, looking like going Oliver over Gawn as C was a mistake.

DavidSA

yup made same mistake too

Whatyasmokin

Last two times they met Gawn racked up +10 hitouts over Kruezer. Was always likely to score reasonably Im not sure why people are so worried about Gawn in this game especially if anything Gawn is in similar form to 2016 and Kruz is underdone with a poor preseason etc.

PizzaSafety

Yeah and Kreuzer was never even that good of a tap ruckman last year, got less points from hitouts to advantage per game than Gawn did.

Beezneez

I changed the c from Gawn to Oliver at the last minute. Why don't I leave things the way they are and go with my first instinct. Oh well still 3 quarters to go. Gawn did slow down a little last week and Oliver picked up – here's hoping for my sake.

JugHead

T. Kelly. After his first ordinary score, when his whole team looked garbage, what do ppl think?

A. Time to trade him. Points and cash generation have been great, but he's done his job. Time to go.
or
B. Are you kidding? He will go back to scoring what he has all year and i can squeeze at least another 60k out of him yet.

Ahmad rubas

im leaning more towards B because i only have 6 premo mids at the moment so when i bring dusty in this week or next week i will need kelly to stay at m8 until his bye well thats the plan anyway

Ahmad rubas

i change my mind A didnt realise he would have a breakeven of 120

seen_burns

I'll be trading him, I don't have Dangerfield and trading Kelly is the easiest way to get him.

Boris_Baconbeer

A.

smart as s

Definitely B, best rookie of the season, one week of poor score is understandable and forgivable, roll on next week!

Redpill5

Cats have blues at home this week. Should bounce back.

DavidSA

anyone else see Gawn 55 down to 45 at the end of the 1st qtr. then gets 1 HO starting the 2nd qtr now is 42?

gator59

Yeah I seen that .. wtf

Whatyasmokin

Did the hitput get sharked? Thats negative 5 points.

Did he then score from a % like a shepherd or bump, maybe a tackle? Did he handball the ball? Was it contested? Was the kick or handball effective? What part of the ground was it in?

Ffs

DavidSA

I added the ? Because I'm watching the fanfooty sc scores while washing dishes. Ipad leaning on the kitchen window. Slap you in the face and knock you out, don't need to close a fist

Keenbutclueless

I think he gave away a double 50 metre penalty

Boris_Baconbeer

Speaking of Fanfooty. Anyone on pc using it?. Seems to be dishing out a lot of Malware last few days

BlueBaggerJosh

Fark u Hibberd, definitely out next week

Defying_Madness

Do something Oliver you shit

Steeeve

Happy with petracca so far today. Hope he can at least go back up in value before I trade him to a real premo.

sc tragic

Why the orange socks ?

BrownlowBoy

Higgins out for those with him onfield!

Ahmad rubas

damn have to take coffield 47 now

Crowboy94

Wish I had him MID instead of FWD would have got Holmans score!

DavidSA

Higgins a late out

Defying_Madness

First week this year I haven't gone Titch VC or C so expect a 200 point game

TheGreatBozza

Worth dropping Dusty to loop Holmans 120? I can field Higgins

Defying_Madness

Yes do it for sure

Yeahnahyeah

Well thats my season over. Dropped 150 ranks to 200ish last week and Captain Oliver should get me a score of around 2100 this week. can see myself dropping out of top 1000. gg boys

DavidSA

Kit Kat

Boris_Baconbeer

Anyone going to complain about Cripps getting 148 in a losing team with 3 clangers 71 % efficiency? Unlike McCrazy, probably not when they have him in their team.
;P Don't get too upset just stirrin.

JohnDJ59

I am since I don't have him and keep coming up against ones that do.

Boris_Baconbeer

Haha! 😀 I hope you have a good score anyway mate.

Holty01

In the end the points have to go somewhere. There is the same amount of points to give out every game. By the end of the match if there is 50 points to still give out, CD give it to who they feel are deserving. It would be so much easier if they evened it out over all players.

BrownlowBoy

Oliver played today with a broken finger. Supposed to have surgery this week.

Finnius

How good are injuries??? AHHHHUOPIfh;ns;abkgF"GKMS:D/vasgkln/vxzc., k'zdfgipjrnagio;edhlkhj9[oq-e

BadgerHoney7

So much for Nank being a late out, for those who traded him, I feel sorry for you, I said it all along.

dognino

That’s me, gotta stop listening to everyone who has the inside word.

Neil demons delight

'Yup he will be out didn't train '' 66

BadgerHoney7

Exactly NDD, Wow also stated this, was wrong and I challenged him but said still said he had inside news, I reckon if the coach doesn't say it, they're alright – coaches are pretty honest these days

Keenbutclueless

I traded him out. I did expect him to be a late out, based on the AFL website. Just the talk of it was enough to make me have a look. Came to the conclusion that even if he played, trading him down to Kreuzer and pocketing cash was a good move. Genuinely believe Kreuzer could match the top dogs on the way home. So, all in me. Whilst it hasn’t worked out well, I guess we won’t really know until the end of the season whether it was right or wrong. Feeling mightily p&&&ed off that’s it all gone pearshaped last two weeks – Crouch and Mutch last week, Lobb and Kreuzer this week. But will remain philosophical and try pick myself up for next emeeej.
