The Standing Room – Round 17

Published by Lekdog on

Well community we’ve had the best Friday night game you’ll ever see so we might as well pack up shop and never watch footy again.

I’ve had an ok start with my beloved Cripps going big…Selwood did not.

Who has let you down so far? And who has gone huge?

PS Billings and Daisy Thomas went big..I am an oracle.

Who should I trade out for Brad Lynch, Tim Smith or Giro?
Also trading out Ed Richards and want to bring in either Gray or Westhoff but still unsure on which

    Russty_ · 14/07/2018 at 15:47

    Tim Smith mate, Giro's still playing and Smith ain't, maybe Westy before Gray just.

PizzaSafety · 14/07/2018 at 14:01

Jack Billings will score big when his team dominates as he relies on others to get the ball

Audrey Horne · 14/07/2018 at 14:23

Too early to make the call on Mitchell’s vice captain score?

    hedski · 14/07/2018 at 14:56

    Lazy 110 at half time.

Ahmad rubas · 14/07/2018 at 14:35

par going to be 3000 this week with titch and gawn double ton plus cripps and danger 150+

    BlueBaggerJosh · 14/07/2018 at 15:14

    Titch making up for his 158 last week

      Audrey Horne · 14/07/2018 at 15:33

      He’s really slowed down though. Going to be a very late call whether you take his score or not.

        Russty_ · 14/07/2018 at 15:46

        On 133 now , he'd have to get to 150 + surely…I'd take that.

          Audrey Horne · 14/07/2018 at 15:53

          Agreed, it would be brave to roll the dice on Gawn after Danger, Cripps, and now Mitchell… but Gawn at the G vs the Dogs with a poor Roughead in the ruck.

            Russty_ · 14/07/2018 at 16:00

            Yeah agree Audrey, I have to take Gawn's now, well as VC anyway cause I passed on the other 3..fingers crossed he goes huuuge.

              Lazza · 15/07/2018 at 09:08


        Ahmad rubas · 14/07/2018 at 15:54

        He's slowed down but still going to go 160+

    Lazza · 14/07/2018 at 20:39

    I took his 158… Olango my C..

Nuggety · 14/07/2018 at 15:15

Good on you Lek! Serious shades of Jock showing through in your leadership of this great community, in more ways than one. I tip my hat.

    Lekdog · 15/07/2018 at 23:36

    Thanks brother, really appreciate it

BlueBaggerJosh · 14/07/2018 at 16:17

Have to take a 160 from Titch, don't go too big Gawn

Ahmad rubas · 14/07/2018 at 16:20

Titch 4-7 in 40+ disposal games for hawthorn
1-2 in 50+ disposal games

Russty_ · 14/07/2018 at 16:30

I like the way the Lions are improving their Footy, their young team is starting to gel together better and get the job done, good on em, nice achievement beating the Hawks, they must be doubting themselves a bit now.

    Finnius · 14/07/2018 at 16:35

    10 bucks on them to make the 8 next year would be a good bet. They play an exciting brand of football, have a solid defensive system in place and have genuine superstars on their roster. I hope they do well. The GABBA is a great ground when its packed out and the side is strong.

      Russty_ · 14/07/2018 at 17:52

      Reckon they could still do with a few more established stars in there too…Beams, Zorko and Martin ain't getting any younger..gotta admire their spirit though.

        Finnius · 14/07/2018 at 18:12

        Harris Andrews and Eric Hipwood at either end of the ground are elite for their age. Rayner, Mcluggage, Berry, and Witherden will all be guns in two or three years.

        Oh, and Daniel rich is also elite… @lekdog

          Russty_ · 14/07/2018 at 18:15

          Andrews was a revelation in his time this season before he went down, Hipwood's really coming along too..I thought he was hopeless but will be really good I think.

          Doc · 14/07/2018 at 20:04

          Start McLuggage next year, will be a beast

    Cobee Bear · 15/07/2018 at 10:40

    Charlie Cameron adds some x factor as well!!

BrownlowBoy · 14/07/2018 at 17:37

How did Michael Hibberd get so bad?

    Finnius · 14/07/2018 at 17:43

    Still a good player, just not SC relevant. Has been playing more lockdown all year. Lewis, Vince, and Salem are the rebounders off half-back it seems.

    Russty_ · 14/07/2018 at 17:45

    Hard to say mate, whether he's not jelling with the Dee's backline or Lever out has had an effect?…he used to be considered a premo defender, especially at the Bombers, it's not like he's old, he's 28, I can't explain it but I'm glad I didn't select him this year.
    I didn't go there because of his history of lower leg injuries but form has been his problem this year, maybe he's just lost the passion for footy.

      BrownlowBoy · 14/07/2018 at 18:14

      I started with him, and still haven't turfed him.

      I should of started Lynch over him.

    Lazza · 14/07/2018 at 20:37

    He was never that good … last year was an outlier … last year a good number of his points were from kick outs …

PizzaSafety · 14/07/2018 at 17:40

Will McLean rediscover his early season form? He's been one of my best picks for the year but seems to be fading.

    Russty_ · 14/07/2018 at 17:46

    Not sure…agree seems to be fading, maybe needs a rest?…maybe trading him out soon could be a good shark move?

      PizzaSafety · 14/07/2018 at 18:36

      I would think about it rusty if I wasn't down to 4 trades haha

        PizzaSafety · 14/07/2018 at 18:40

        Just had a good quarter too

        Russty_ · 14/07/2018 at 18:40

        Know the feeling mate…still might do it though if i can haha

BrownlowBoy · 14/07/2018 at 17:54

When was the last time Brisbane had a Friday night game?

They can't be any worse than Carlton.

    ZzZCalintZzZ · 14/07/2018 at 18:24

    Brissy are coming good for the next 5-6 years will make the 8 a few times

ZzZCalintZzZ · 14/07/2018 at 18:23

Brayshaw huh…

Finnius · 14/07/2018 at 18:24

Gawn is getting robbed. So dominant in the centre square but isn't getting nearly enough HO to advantage payed.

    Russty_ · 14/07/2018 at 18:29

    Should be 5 points scored each time.

Russty_ · 14/07/2018 at 18:28

Be nice if Gawny could have a 60 point last quarter…if not, Pendles or Grundy?..I need help!

AuroraBorealis?! · 14/07/2018 at 18:54

LIFT tommy

Tom · 14/07/2018 at 19:08

Take Gawns 130 odd or back in Pendles? Thinking take

    Finnius · 14/07/2018 at 19:10

    I'm probably gonna take it.

Pete · 14/07/2018 at 19:08

Do I stick with Fritsch’s 71 or back in ahern?

    Finnius · 14/07/2018 at 19:25

    Take it Pete.

Corey · 14/07/2018 at 20:15

Any chance of Dustin Martin using the ball well for once he’ll get 30 touches tonight for 60 SC points the way he is going

    Corey · 14/07/2018 at 20:38

    And the commentators will still laud his “brilliance”

BadgerHoney7 · 14/07/2018 at 20:42

dusty far out 5 clangers – kick the ball with pride mate

    BadgerHoney7 · 14/07/2018 at 20:44

    should be on 70

    Lazza · 14/07/2018 at 20:49

    Don’t worry, he has the shits with the umps now, so will go hard ..

Ja191 · 14/07/2018 at 21:35

why is whitfield always so underscored????

    BrownlowBoy · 14/07/2018 at 22:11

    Uncontested possessions probably

      Ja191 · 14/07/2018 at 22:54

      lloyd and simpson are both mainly uncontested and score very well. Didn't see the game but 150 to 106 at 71% de is a pretty big differential

Crow94 · 14/07/2018 at 22:08

Some underwhelming scores tonight…. looking at you J KELLY!

BadgerHoney7 · 14/07/2018 at 22:14

whats everyone projected – I am 2625.

    BlueBaggerJosh · 14/07/2018 at 22:26


    Ahmad rubas · 14/07/2018 at 22:35

    2239 hibberd petracca lobb 🙂

    AuroraBorealis?! · 14/07/2018 at 23:05

    I'm 2,514 unfortunately, still carrying 2 rookies on field and J.Kelly and T.Mac have been very underwhelming

    KSinny · 14/07/2018 at 23:07


    oliverfisher · 15/07/2018 at 01:33

    2,548, but could potentially push 2600, both JJK and Shuey are predicted to score around 70 but could go higher.

    Lazza · 15/07/2018 at 09:13

    SC really needs some polish doesn’t it… Olango projected to score 42… lol

AuroraBorealis?! · 14/07/2018 at 23:03

I'm playing someone who looped Titch's score with Olango and forgot to put the E on Gawn. Ouch!

    Holty01 · 14/07/2018 at 23:14

    I know the feeling. Did the same earlier in the season but with Stef Martin

      AuroraBorealis?! · 14/07/2018 at 23:16

      It's such a small lapse in concentration but it costs so much

        Connor · 15/07/2018 at 13:19

        I forgot to loop Gawn's VC score..

Ja191 · 14/07/2018 at 23:40

take gawn or risk grundy? Think I might just stick with the bearded one

    Derek · 15/07/2018 at 11:38

    I might take a punt on Grundy.

    Yeo is a sneaky option against a Collingwood midfield

      Finnius · 15/07/2018 at 14:11


        Derek · 15/07/2018 at 15:34

        Uh oh

PIES CAKEWALK 2018 · 15/07/2018 at 01:50

Dustin Martin is a turnover machine this season who no longer bothers tackling – does not stop the commentators drooling though!

Mark Fawcett · 15/07/2018 at 09:47

1,969 so far with a projection of 2,609. Have loopholed Dangerfield. Hogan's 123 sitting on the bench with no way to get him on the field as my emergency:( Some big scores from Dangerfield, Mitchell, Laird, Gawn, Cripps, Oliver and Stefan Martin. Still have Lloyd, Yeo, Rocky, Gray, Wingard, and Heeney to play. Lowest score is McDonalds 74 which I'll take any day. Hopefully, cement myself in top 100 after this round?

    The Ranger · 15/07/2018 at 10:33

    Nice Mark, gonna be some big scores this week.

    Derek · 15/07/2018 at 11:36

    You had Hogan on the bench? Must have a decent forward line. Would/could you make a trade to a donut player to get his score?

    I have Langdon on my bench, can’t get his 106 as my donut options have both already played and not worth a trade.

TOPHAWK1 · 15/07/2018 at 10:58

Sitting on 1601 points after loopholing Gawn's VC score. Still have Yeo, Ryan, Howe, Parker, S Higgins, Rockliff, Grundy, Wingard, de Goey and Heeney to play. Hopefully these 10 guys can get me another 1000 points. Will take 2600 any day of the week after so many "close but no cigar" scores this season. How is everybody else looking?

    Sc_Wow · 15/07/2018 at 11:23

    2034 with 6 left, I’ll take 2600 too

      TOPHAWK1 · 15/07/2018 at 11:55

      2600+ is the magic number. But it is SUNDAY. And we all know what Sundays often dish up. Turds. Not today please!

    Jace · 15/07/2018 at 11:31

    1960 with 6 to play

      TOPHAWK1 · 15/07/2018 at 11:56

      A few decent scores and 2600 is looking a possibility mate. Go well!!

    Derek · 15/07/2018 at 11:32

    this week has been good so far, but I have many playing today and anything could happen.

    Not happy with Gawn’s VC score, think I’ll roll dice with Grundy, although rucks have struggled against WCE to score. 139 is my VC city off this year, so Grundy it is. Yeo is a sneaky C as Collingwood give up a lot of points to opponent midfielders.

    Looking at 2650+

      TOPHAWK1 · 15/07/2018 at 12:01

      Playing you in the A graders league mate where I am dead set, stone cold, LAST. Despite being on opposite ends of the ladder, I might push the bunnies this week. It should be a very tight finish. Projected at 2644 with Grundy C. Going to take Gawn's VC score though. Should be a great battle. Cheers Derek.

    hedski · 15/07/2018 at 11:50

    I'm on 1711 from 14, Danger captain.
    Have Nic Nat, Yeo, Gaff, Heeney, JPK, Ryan, Walters and Gray to come.
    Will need some big scores to hit 2600, probably end up around 2500.

      TOPHAWK1 · 15/07/2018 at 12:04

      Got some beasts playing today mate. Yeo, Heeney, JPK, and Gray can all score 150's. If a couple of those blokes can do that, 2600 is still gettable. Cheers.

        hedski · 15/07/2018 at 12:11

        I hope so TH 👍

    Richard · 15/07/2018 at 12:59

    1742 with 9 to go

Finnius · 15/07/2018 at 11:45

Ok community – I am in a very tight league match up at the moment and I need some advice. My opponent had Cripps VC score which he is taking, whilst I had Gawn.

The final points of difference (if I take Gawn VC) are:

Howe Lloyd Neale vs Crisp Westhoff 135 points

Or I could captain Grundy to try and sneak a few more points, and then it would look like this:

Howe Lloyd Neale Grundy vs Crisp Westhoff 265 points

Either way it is going to be tight, but I am leaning towards option two. West Coast give a lot of points to ruckmen, Grundy has gone 130 + 8 times this year and it is at the MCG.


    Derek · 15/07/2018 at 12:09

    The Draft Doctor boys were saying that Ruckmen haven’t been doing well against WCE. Do you know any numbers to support either way?

      Finnius · 15/07/2018 at 12:18

      Sauce put up a 145 in round 15, and Tom Bellchamber a 120 odd the week before. Simpson did struggle against them last week, but I think Grundy's is a very different player to big dawson.

    TOPHAWK1 · 15/07/2018 at 12:14

    Geez! That is tight mate. I think if you go with option one, you are more likely to fall short. Your three against his 2 and his 135 pt lead will IMO opinion be too much to overhaul. With option 2, you have more of a chance albeit some additional risk being created. With option 2, it really comes down to Grundy. If Grundy scores a 140 as captain you are back in business. 280 points there, and then 110, 120, and 130 from your three players respectively, and you score a total of 640 points. You would then lead your opponent by 375 points. (640-265) Then Crisp and Westhoff would need to score 376 points between them to overhaul you. Ain't going to happen.

    Option 2 mate! Lock it in.

      Finnius · 15/07/2018 at 12:21

      Thanks Tophawk – I think I'm leaning that way. Risk v Reward its probably worth backing Grundy in. I might end up losing by 100 if he puts up a 90, but I think that otherwise I'd need one of my boys to go 160 in order to snake the win which is pretty unlikely.

      I think you gave me a bit too much of a headstart there though – he has Grundy as well so Crisp and Westhoff would only need to score 376 – 140 = 236, which is achievable but still less likely than the 220 if I took Gawn's score. Grundy only becomes a POD if I captain him.

      Still leaning towards option 2, its gonna be tight though!

        TOPHAWK1 · 15/07/2018 at 12:27

        Forgot about his Grundy score! I always overlook something when doing these analyses. Dont know why I bother sometimes. LOL That said, the same dynamics are still in play. Option 2 gives you more hope than option 1. Good luck mate!

          Derek · 15/07/2018 at 12:34

          I only just got Grundy last week, so haven’t really looked at his scores….. but he has been seriously good.

    Finnius · 15/07/2018 at 14:05

    Probably should have taken Gawn fml

Pod · 15/07/2018 at 12:39

Hello, community who should i bench out of Rockliff or Walters. Thinking Rocky as Walters playing at Home. Good Luck with the rest of the round community 🙂

    Ja191 · 15/07/2018 at 12:44

    yeah rocky. Floss is playing walters full forward for some dumb reason

Connor · 15/07/2018 at 13:17

Just realised i never looped Gawn…

    Finnius · 15/07/2018 at 13:25

    Who do you have as captain?

      Connor · 15/07/2018 at 14:23

      Gaff :/

Pod · 15/07/2018 at 13:52

Jacobs out good news for Parker, Heeny and JPK owners

Steeeve · 15/07/2018 at 14:19

Gaff's first-half disappearing act making me feel slightly better about going Fyfe to Josh Kelly.

Cobee Bear · 15/07/2018 at 14:32

Yeo 56 points at half time is a bit generous, even if he is in my team

Help me · 15/07/2018 at 14:58

Question, can look shuey for either Parker or rocky who wo ld you bench for the likely 110+

    Help me · 15/07/2018 at 14:58


      Cobee Bear · 15/07/2018 at 15:09

      loop parker

hedski · 15/07/2018 at 15:11

Ah crap. Looks like I will have NoTradesFaFoxAche with Nic Nat going down, I'll trade his arse at 9 o'clock tonight and be left with 1 trade, can't afford to get Grundy straight swap either.

    theRealPod · 15/07/2018 at 15:55

    Unlucky hedski, he was all over Grundy. Can you trade to Goldy?

      hedski · 15/07/2018 at 16:41

      I have JPK as well Pod….hope he's not too bad.
      Goldy was my first thought, if JPK is bad I'll go Grundy and whoever I can get in the mids.
      I hope it doesn't come to that.
      Has destroyed my round, will be lucky to crack 2300 now.

        JohnDJ59 · 15/07/2018 at 18:02

        Martin is going ok, nearly as well as Grundy.

        theRealPod · 16/07/2018 at 07:01

        Ouch and Rob Gray too!! That sucks big time. Hopefully Kennedy doesn't miss any games.

    Help me · 15/07/2018 at 19:58

    Low on trades this year like most bud.

    The Ranger · 16/07/2018 at 11:39

    I can't get to Grundy in one trade either Hedski, gonna have to be Goldy I think.
    Maybe change the team name to ShedLoadsOfTradesLeftHa next year? See if ya luck changes.

      hedski · 16/07/2018 at 13:06

      I thought I might have tempted fate with that name mate!!
      Only have $55k in the bank so can't go straight to Grundy/Goldy/Stef, best I can do is probably Sinclair.
      Not sure I want him, might burn T.Smith to Bayok for a loop/swing and go all out on Grundy.
      I like Goldy's run home in the finals though

Connor · 15/07/2018 at 15:33

Wow Grundy doesn't have to do anything and he will still ton up

Maverick_ · 15/07/2018 at 16:03

nicnat gone down! hmm hibberd looks to survive another week! dammit

BrownlowBoy · 15/07/2018 at 16:05

JPK also looks done for the day.

    TOPHAWK1 · 15/07/2018 at 16:11

    Looks like JPK has done his back. He is cooked. Nic Nat knee injury appears serious. What carnage.

      BrownlowBoy · 15/07/2018 at 16:27

      I'm gonna go early and say Nic Nat has done another ACL.

        Cobee Bear · 15/07/2018 at 16:35

        It looked medial

      hedski · 15/07/2018 at 16:38

      I have them both 😭

TOPHAWK1 · 15/07/2018 at 16:12

Higgins and Heeney good boys. Parker lift you lazy twat!!!

Holty01 · 15/07/2018 at 16:34

Was on target for 2700 but with kennedy going down it looks very doubtful

Rooey · 15/07/2018 at 16:54

Had no trades but was fairly confident as I have premo cover on every line except the ruck. With Nic nat out: rip my rank and chances of winning cash league. (Cmon Lavender get a game pls)

    Pod · 15/07/2018 at 18:16

    Olango plz

Pod · 15/07/2018 at 18:14

Robbie Grey, JPK and Nic NAT ALL INJURED TODAY WOW!!! Hope there all ok

    hedski · 15/07/2018 at 18:19

    ALL IN MY TEAM!!!!

      Holty01 · 15/07/2018 at 18:23

      I dont have Nic Nat but have the others. Was heading for 2700 until the injuries. Cant remember the last time or even if ive hit 2600 b4. Doubt ill get there again now

        HarryH76 · 15/07/2018 at 18:28

        Yep I was on track for 2727 until R Gray injury. But I get Pod's point BTW. We get wrapped up in SC scores but in the end, these guys are all injured which is more important. Talk of Nic Nat being out for a year. That would be terrible have to say!

          Holty01 · 15/07/2018 at 18:37

          Yeah just when he is getting back to his best. Lets hope its not another serious knee for him.

            hedski · 15/07/2018 at 18:45

            Opposite knee than he done last time, horrible luck if its a bad one.

    Richard · 15/07/2018 at 18:22

    Sunday carnage has struck.

    BlueBaggerJosh · 15/07/2018 at 18:24

    Paddy Ryder too

PizzaSafety · 15/07/2018 at 18:31

Was heading for close to 2700 til the Gray injury and Walters started playing deep forward not touching the ball, but Lachie Neale is looking good at the moment. Can't really complain, my sympathies go out to anyone who had at least 2 out of Gray, JPK and Nic Nat. Hope all those boys are okay as well

Defying_Madness · 15/07/2018 at 18:39

Luke Ryan is a bloody gun, he going huge today

    hedski · 15/07/2018 at 18:47

    He's a shining light for me today after Nic JPK and Gray going down. Walters only just going, how's he scoring so crap when freo are up and about?

      Defying_Madness · 15/07/2018 at 18:51

      Playing very deep forward hedski which is hurting his scores. Would help if he snags some goals in the last quarter.
      I feel for you having all 3 of them, with most coaches low on trades I hope you manage somehow. Good luck mate

        hedski · 15/07/2018 at 19:22

        Cheers DM, had some OK bench cover this week with Mihocek, Phillips, Ahern, Gyro and Guelfi all doing OK (McInerney just going), will allow me to hold JPK and Gray, might have to punt Nic

Audrey Horne · 15/07/2018 at 18:41

Luke Ryan might just save me from certain defeat in a must win league game. Looked unlikely when Nic Nat went down but my opponent has been hit with JPK and Gray.

    Cobee Bear · 15/07/2018 at 19:15

    Rockliff being played deep FWD saved me

Audrey Horne · 15/07/2018 at 18:48

FFS do something Walters.

Marty · 15/07/2018 at 19:17

Going to be some big scores this week. How did everyone fare?

    Crow94 · 15/07/2018 at 19:23

    2422. J Kennedy hurt big time!

    Top1000 · 15/07/2018 at 19:24

    2560 in the end.

    Defying_Madness · 15/07/2018 at 19:25

    2539 for me

    BrownlowBoy · 15/07/2018 at 19:26

    2310. Walters, Gray, Kennedy murdered me today.

    Russty_ · 15/07/2018 at 19:27

    Giday Marty, 2503 and the genius decision to Captain Pendles lol

      TOPHAWK1 · 15/07/2018 at 19:39

      Hi Russty. Pendles did not bring you the chocolates as C today. I had the same drama last week with Titch. He bought me boiled lollies. Happy to get a win over you today mate. You are one of the great stalwarts of the JR community and an Elite coach to boot. Hopefully plenty more battles to look forward to in the years ahead. In fact, we might meet again in the finals! ;-D Cheers Russty.

        Russty_ · 15/07/2018 at 19:45

        Thanks Hawk right back at ya mate, and great score this week 2639 is epic, and yeah hope to see you in the finals bud.

        Beezneez · 15/07/2018 at 20:10

        Im in the same league. 2541 and still got beaten. Robbie Gray didn't help. Even when I score well always seem to lose – 3 times by between 1-3 points. Trying to make the top eight has been frustrating.

          Russty_ · 15/07/2018 at 22:02

          That blows Beez, scoring 2541 and getting beaten!…not bloody fair that!…good score though mate, shows the level of talent we're up against.

      Marty · 15/07/2018 at 19:48

      Great effort. You are killing it lately.

      Help me · 15/07/2018 at 19:49

      Haha ouch, Abit dumb not taking VC score or ?

        Russty_ · 15/07/2018 at 19:52

        Yeah a bit dumb mate..passed on Danger, and then Titch, and then Gawn…so a bit dumb hahah, not unhappy though 🙂

          Help me · 15/07/2018 at 19:56

          High on life. You're amazing 🙂

    KSinny · 15/07/2018 at 19:28

    2462 with Kennedy and Gray

      Russty_ · 15/07/2018 at 19:31

      Bad luck looked like you were gonna thrash me, I had Gray too.

        KSinny · 15/07/2018 at 19:41

        Good job mate! Was going so well until the last 2 games. 😥

    TOPHAWK1 · 15/07/2018 at 19:30

    2639 for me at the final siren.

      Derek · 15/07/2018 at 19:45

      Good score TH. You dodged all the Sunday carnage

      Baby boX · 15/07/2018 at 19:45

      No villains for you then. Luck f#!k

      Marty · 15/07/2018 at 19:49

      Awesome score TH.

      The Ranger · 15/07/2018 at 20:00

      Great score TH, nice one.

      hedski · 15/07/2018 at 20:43

      HUGE TOPPA 👍

    TBone_9 · 15/07/2018 at 19:32

    2526 with Gray and Walters

    BadgerHoney7 · 15/07/2018 at 19:33

    2401 – Walters, Gray, NicNat, TMac all killed me – don't know what I will do with Gray as I have to trade NicNat then save my trades – hopefully Gray can miraculously return or Tim Smith or Battle plays – lets pray.

    Daniel · 15/07/2018 at 19:37

    2324 after a 2583 last week, thanks to walters, gray and nicnat

      Russty_ · 15/07/2018 at 22:04

      Harsh week Dan, maybe hold Gray but Nicnat has to be traded, hopefully you have a few.

    The Ranger · 15/07/2018 at 19:42

    Shocking Sunday. 2500+ turned into a 2378.

      Randomcliche2 · 16/07/2018 at 12:35

      Identical to me, Nic Nat Gray Walters #wherearemytrades

    Ahmad rubas · 15/07/2018 at 19:43

    2436 first 2400+ score of the season. Spuds were hibberd petracca and lobb only positive is I avoided the injury carnage

    Number #1 · 15/07/2018 at 19:44

    2560. Not very happy with it either tbh. Will slide out of top 10

      Marty · 15/07/2018 at 19:52

      Tough taskmaster!

    Sc_Wow · 15/07/2018 at 19:51


      Help me · 15/07/2018 at 19:57


      Russty_ · 15/07/2018 at 20:11

      Well done Wow, great score.

    Marty · 15/07/2018 at 19:52

    2582 for me this week with Gray's 37. Almost traded Ryan's a$$ this week but he redeemed himself.

      Russty_ · 15/07/2018 at 20:02

      Well done Marty, great score..lucky you kept Ryan indeed.

    Willymack1234 · 15/07/2018 at 19:55

    2622 for me

    JohnDJ59 · 15/07/2018 at 19:58

    2550 my best score for the year, won 8/10 of my league games.

      Russty_ · 15/07/2018 at 20:06

      Noice John, good time of the year to peak mate.

        JohnDJ59 · 15/07/2018 at 20:22

        Thanks Russty, I could have been gone even bigger, if I hadn't taken the VC off Titch, but was happy with big Max score, since it was only the second time I've put the VC or C on him this year and we know what happened the first time.

    neil demons delight · 15/07/2018 at 19:59

    Some mighty scores Toppa 2636 GREAT score mate as was Russty Gator's 2587 but that's his par 2597 for NDD

      Russty_ · 15/07/2018 at 20:07

      Beauty Neil!…big one mate, where's Gator lately, haven't seen him around for awhile.

        neil demons delight · 15/07/2018 at 21:55

        No mate he will pop up now it's settled down a little

    Holty01 · 15/07/2018 at 20:09

    2546 with JPK and Gray. Not having these and Nic Nat will be the difference between a ok score and a huge score

    HarryH76 · 15/07/2018 at 20:22

    Could have been amazing if for Gray getting injured. Can't complain about 2620 though 🙂

    BlueBaggerJosh · 15/07/2018 at 20:26


    mmmbutch · 15/07/2018 at 20:28

    2624. Very happy

    Dogsdik · 15/07/2018 at 20:55

    2488 jpk and walters. Vc’d danget

    Sandyf62 · 16/07/2018 at 00:15

    2546, my best ever score, even managed to beat Dnt worry b Trigga in Titch To Scatch. 18 v 3, so anything is possible.

      JohnDJ59 · 16/07/2018 at 14:41

      Well done Sandy, I'm in that position in a few of my leagues and have managed to still pull off some wins against the top four teams, just goes to show that you have to keep at it, unlike some last placed teams that have given it away.

    NoLanguage · 16/07/2018 at 07:09

    2562 with Walters and Gray. Will take that

    SamuraiPizzaCat · 16/07/2018 at 10:58

    2478 for me, a few big scores, and a lot of average scores Simpson, Kelly, Rocky, Menegola, Walters… pretty happy with that though.

AuroraBorealis?! · 15/07/2018 at 19:31

2436 for me this week per scaling, not bad considering I had Nic Nat and grays injury effected scores. How did everyone else do?

neil demons delight · 15/07/2018 at 19:53

whoever said luck plays no part in this game doesn't know sheat 2597 so pretty happy Bad luck Hedski with the 3 injuries ,kills you

    Beezneez · 15/07/2018 at 20:17

    Hey Neil you beat me in GnR by 56. Good luck may have been different if Gray hadn't gone down- just when Wrinkley started playing him in the guts.

      neil demons delight · 15/07/2018 at 21:49

      maybe some luck there my friend

    hedski · 15/07/2018 at 20:49

    Cheers Neil, haven't even checked my score yet I'm so salty. Will have a look now.

      hedski · 15/07/2018 at 20:53

      2329. Crap.

Russty_ · 15/07/2018 at 19:59

Been out buying crap from Bunnings all day so didn't see any games, so what happened with Nicnat, JPK and Gray today guys?..what kind of injuries and how bad did they look?

    BrownlowBoy · 15/07/2018 at 20:00

    Nic Nat knee – doesn't seem good.
    JPK back – was getting a rub on the ground, couldn't even get up on his own, had to be helped up by a few trainers.
    Gray – KO'D in a big tackle. Was out cold.

      Russty_ · 15/07/2018 at 20:09

      Crap!..sounds like some bad ones there!..Gray should only miss one ay? Bummer about Nicnat, hoped he'd get through a season for a change.

      Marty · 15/07/2018 at 20:13

      They think Nic Nat has ruptured his ACL on his right knee.

    Claire · 15/07/2018 at 20:01

    Nice Nat season done.

    Jpk back spasms.

    Gray concussed, nyhius will get 3 weeks.

    Sc_Wow · 15/07/2018 at 20:02

    Get a snag?

      Russty_ · 15/07/2018 at 20:10

      Nah the smell was wafting through the gigantic warehouse all day though…kinda gross lol

    Holty01 · 15/07/2018 at 20:03

    Gray KO'd in tackle. Might miss a week.
    JPK did his lower back in an attempt to tackle. Didnt look like much but seemed to be in a lot of pain.
    Nic Nat………. i just wish him all the best. He went down holding his knee

    Jace · 15/07/2018 at 20:16

    2567 my highest score ever!!!

    TOPHAWK1 · 15/07/2018 at 20:21

    Nic Nat has injured his "good knee". Early reports are indicating it is not looking to flash. Praying for him. Grundy hates Nic Nat.
    JPK has done something to his back. He was in agony and might be some soft tissue damage.
    Robbie Gray's head was used as a bowling ball by a Nyhuis tackle. Looked out for the count and was badly concussed. He will miss one if not 2. The tackler is looking at a 2 to 3 week holiday for his efforts.

Ahmad rubas · 15/07/2018 at 20:52

just realised round 17 was last round with thursday night footy back to friday night from round 18 onwards

    Russty_ · 15/07/2018 at 21:56

    About blood time Ahmad, Thursday night Footy sucks..have to think more during the week!

Mark Fawcett · 15/07/2018 at 21:14

Well, moved up 4 spots to 99:) Downside is managed a score of 2,496 with Hogan's 123 on the bench whilst had Gray's injury score of 37, oh well:).

    Russty_ · 15/07/2018 at 21:55

    Bummer Mark but good score anyway mate, I advised you to Bench Hoges this week cause of his rollercoaster like scoring tendencies but it was for someone else wasn't it?…hey mate on the brightside, you have him there for backup this week while Robbie has a rest.
    Gray wrecked a lot of out potential scores this week, hope he's only out for one.

      Mark · 16/07/2018 at 09:35

      lol, yep, I actually did take your advice there mate, haha:) Oh well, what can you do? An unfortunate event which could have happened to anyone. Could have been worse and been a season-ending injury like Nic Nat's. 5 trades still left so not stressing. In my AFL Fantasy draft team had Kruezer as my ruck on 11 only:)!!! Ceglar's 60 something was looking better. Maybe need an option if a player is concussed within the first quarter or something you automatically get your emergencies score? Don't know how it would work exactly, maybe in league teams, Probably too much for overall standings as everyone is in the same boat with luck:)

    Lekdog · 15/07/2018 at 23:38

    Nice! Keep gunning mate!

    theRealPod · 16/07/2018 at 06:56

    Nice Mark, top 100 is uber elite!!

Russty_ · 15/07/2018 at 23:11

Ben Brown is the best kicker of Goals in the AFL I believe, he's a testament to sticking to your pre-shot routine, no matter how quirky it may be or how fk'd up his red hair is lol.
He walks in from 85 metres but most of the time, manages to get the ultimate job done, and that's rare these days, for a goal kicker to actually be reliable.
I reckon the red curly haired bastard is a revelation, and might even pick him in my SC team next year…sillier things have been done 🙂

    neil demons delight · 16/07/2018 at 06:37

    Tom McDONALD is not too bad russty

    theRealPod · 16/07/2018 at 06:55

    Tim Membrey.. a man you can rely on.

    Jack · 16/07/2018 at 16:29

    Josh Caddy too

oliverfisher · 15/07/2018 at 23:54

2518 this week. I'm hoping to bring in a D7 in a week or two to loop with Witherden. The plan is to trade out T Smith and swing Sicily forward, leaving me 381k to spend. Would Houli be the best option the week after this? With R Gray probably out for this week, it would mean I need to field Billing, JJK and Ahern, which worries me, but I should be able to get Houli for another 20k cheaper if I wait one week.

Full team is
LLoyd, Simpson, Yeo, Laird, Sicily, Savage (Witherden, Heron)
Mitchell, Cripps, Oliver, Kelly, Zorko, Parker, Coniglio, Shuey (Fyfe, Daniels, Murphy)
Gawn, Martin (McInerney)
Heeney, Gray, McLean, Billings, JJK, Robinson (T Smith, Ahern)

TIGESB2B · 16/07/2018 at 00:08

JPK and Gray in my team.

Testing123 · 16/07/2018 at 08:59

So, I’ve got 4 trades left, $80k in the bank. Playing for cash league only and can make finals without trading next two rounds… But I’m one short of premium in the fwd line. With two trades I could accumulate $640k. Should I pull the pin on anyone this week or not?

    pigjumpprusik · 16/07/2018 at 10:10

    Wait till round 20. If you can make finals, no need to trade unless you're aiming for a top 4 spot. Don't want to be in a situation where premium's are injured for finals and you can't trade them and only have rookie cover

TheGreatBozza · 16/07/2018 at 12:53

Scored a 2442 with Pendles, Kelly, Walters, Simpson & Gray subpar. Stayed ranked at 1390, looking to finish in the top 1000 by end of the year.

Ia have 7 trades and $0, any good moves to make?

D – Simpson, Yeo, Laird, Sicily, Howe, Savage (Richards, Austin)
M – Mitchell, Cripps, Danger, Pendles, Beams, Kelly, Cogs, Dusty (Ahern, Giro, Dawson)
R – Gawn, Grundy (Hayes)
F – Westhoff, Heeney. D.Smith, Gray, McClean, Walters (De Goey, Smith)

I'm wanting a D6/D7 to some-what complete my team.

Option 1 is going T.Smith to a rookie DEF/FWD swing, then Richards to one of McDonald, Ryan or Webster
Option 2 is to go Austin down to a rookie and Richards up to Brayshaw, Crisp or Hurley


    Derek · 16/07/2018 at 13:52

    only worry about your bench once you are 100% happy with your onfield players.

    is there anyone in your current starting 22 who you could upgrade to a better player?

      TheGreatBozza · 16/07/2018 at 15:05

      The candidates would be Savage, Pendles, Walters & Gray, but I feel like some of those moves are a bit sideways. Pendles showed he can still pull out the big scores, while I really don't trust too many FWD premiums to offload McLean or Gray too.

Marty · 16/07/2018 at 17:54

You need Lloyd in your backline at some stage or you are losing places to those teams above you. Savage to Lloyd but you might need to downgrade Richards to someone like O'Riordan to make more cash.

r_calve · 16/07/2018 at 18:27

if deledio is back should i trade him in or go for the chad

    Audrey Horne · 16/07/2018 at 18:39

    Take a very brave person to look at Deledio ever again. Great pod but I’d be more tempted with his teammate Greene.

    Derek · 16/07/2018 at 19:25

    He won’t get any midfield time, GWS midfield at full strength. Get someone who is in the guts.

    Russty_ · 16/07/2018 at 21:47

    Reckon the Chad is in pretty good form of late, 3 round av of 111, Deledio's old and unreliable.

BrownlowBoy · 16/07/2018 at 19:28

I called it,

Nic Nat has done another ACL.

Absolutely gutted for him. He's one of my favourite players to watch when he's up and running.

Such a cruel blow, yet another year we won't see the powers of Nic Nat.

Here's hoping for a speedy recovery.

    Audrey Horne · 16/07/2018 at 19:37

    Never nice to hear about such a serious injury. Think he’ll become Stef Martin in my team this week.

    BlueBaggerJosh · 16/07/2018 at 20:04

    Lycett one for next year?

      BrownlowBoy · 16/07/2018 at 20:20

      Reckon Gawn and Sean Darcy will be very popular.

    Russty_ · 16/07/2018 at 21:33

    Terrible news, such a shame, hope we still get to see him play again next year.

    neil demons delight · 16/07/2018 at 22:05

    He will come back I'm sure. David Swartz did three and came back successfully lets hope he does

Richard · 16/07/2018 at 20:20

Good to see Sam McClure getting put back in his place on talking footy.

AuroraBorealis?! · 16/07/2018 at 21:06

I'm in need of a bit of advice here community, I have 4 trades left, i am still 2 players short of full premo, and I have nic nat. I have 191k in the bank that i was planning on using for upgrades, but should i use that money on upgrading to Grundy? If i do that it'll leave me with 38k, 3 trades and 2 rookies playing on field. Or is it better to upgrade to stef martin at 555k and keep 100k+ in the bank? Obviously Grundy is in the top 2 rucks for this year, but is he 60k+ better than Stef martin? Or would that extra money serve me better if i put it toward my upgrades?

Cheers, AB

    TBone_9 · 16/07/2018 at 21:30

    Hey AB, what is your team looking like other than Nic Nat? Trading him is a must, but going under 3 trades is scary with the amount of injuries that have occurred so far this year! Cheers mate

      AuroraBorealis?! · 16/07/2018 at 23:39

      DEF: K.Simpson, E.Yeo, R.Laird, J.Sicily, L.Ryan, B.Mihocek (T.Duman, J.Ridley)

      MID: T.Mitchell, P.Cripps, P.Dangerfield, A.Gaff, Z.Merrett, C.Oliver, J.Kelly, M.Crouch (C.Spargo, W.Powell, D.Barry

      RUCK: M.Gawn, N.Naitanui (T.Olango)

      FWD: I.Heeney, D.Smith, R.Gray, T.Mcdonald, T.Mclean, P.Ahern (T.Smith, L.Keefe)

      Yeah 3 trades is probably not going to get me over the line for the rest of the season, i tried trading super aggressively this year in order to get to full premo quicker, but because of injuries and poor decisions i'm now behind on both trades and players.

    Russty_ · 16/07/2018 at 21:32

    Hey AB, bad luck with Nicnat mate, that's a tragedy for the Footy world losing him again, I think if I were in your situation, I'd get Martin in, and then hold on for dear life, you might have to leave your 2 rooks on field cause you will probably need those 3 remaining trades for inevitable injuries, what a year it's been!

      AuroraBorealis?! · 16/07/2018 at 23:41

      Cheers for the response Russty, i think it'll be a case of trade to Stef and clench. This year has been an absolute embarrassment so far and will be the only season in which i've failed to reach full premo

        Russty_ · 17/07/2018 at 00:23

        Nah no need for embarrassment mate, injuries have been a shocker this year, many will be in the same boat.

dontblushbaby · 17/07/2018 at 12:27

Sicily out for 6 weeks with a wrist injury

    Blueth · 17/07/2018 at 12:51

    good news for those with trades left

    neil demons delight · 17/07/2018 at 12:53

    welcome T MCD

    PeteB · 17/07/2018 at 18:51

    Far out. Think I’ll go to Jack Crisp which will leave me 3 trades. Injury trades only for the next few weeks. Hopefully I will still have those trades for the finals.
