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.

Josh

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_

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

PizzaSafety

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

Audrey Horne

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

hedski

Lazy 110 at half time.

Ahmad rubas

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

BlueBaggerJosh

Titch making up for his 158 last week

Audrey Horne

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

Russty_

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

Audrey Horne

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_

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

Bummer!

Ahmad rubas

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

Lazza

I took his 158… Olango my C..

Nuggety

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.

BlueBaggerJosh

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

Ahmad rubas

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

Russty_

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

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_

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

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…

Russty_

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

Start McLuggage next year, will be a beast

Cobee Bear

Charlie Cameron adds some x factor as well!!

BrownlowBoy

How did Michael Hibberd get so bad?

Finnius

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_

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

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

I should of started Lynch over him.

Lazza

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

PizzaSafety

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

Russty_

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

PizzaSafety

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

PizzaSafety

Just had a good quarter too

Russty_

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

BrownlowBoy

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

They can't be any worse than Carlton.

ZzZCalintZzZ

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

ZzZCalintZzZ

Brayshaw huh…

Finnius

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

Russty_

Should be 5 points scored each time.

Russty_

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

AuroraBorealis?!

LIFT tommy

Tom

Take Gawns 130 odd or back in Pendles? Thinking take

Finnius

I'm probably gonna take it.

Pete

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

Finnius

Take it Pete.

Corey

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

And the commentators will still laud his “brilliance”

BadgerHoney7

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

BadgerHoney7

should be on 70

Lazza

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

Ja191

why is whitfield always so underscored????

BrownlowBoy

Uncontested possessions probably

Ja191

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

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

BadgerHoney7

whats everyone projected – I am 2625.

BlueBaggerJosh

2613

Ahmad rubas

2239 hibberd petracca lobb 🙂

AuroraBorealis?!

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

KSinny

2694

oliverfisher

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

Lazza

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

AuroraBorealis?!

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

Holty01

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

AuroraBorealis?!

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

Connor

I forgot to loop Gawn's VC score..

Ja191

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

Derek

I might take a punt on Grundy.

Yeo is a sneaky option against a Collingwood midfield

Finnius

oops

Derek

Uh oh

PIES CAKEWALK 2018

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

Mark Fawcett

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

Nice Mark, gonna be some big scores this week.

Derek

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

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

2034 with 6 left, I’ll take 2600 too

TOPHAWK1

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

Jace

1960 with 6 to play

TOPHAWK1

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

Derek

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

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

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

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

I hope so TH 👍

Richard

1742 with 9 to go

Finnius

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.

Thoughts?

Derek

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

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

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

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

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

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

Finnius

Probably should have taken Gawn fml

Pod

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

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

Connor

Just realised i never looped Gawn…

Finnius

Who do you have as captain?

Connor

Gaff :/

Pod

Jacobs out good news for Parker, Heeny and JPK owners

Steeeve

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

Cobee Bear

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

Help me

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

Help me

Loop

Cobee Bear

loop parker

hedski

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

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

hedski

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

Martin is going ok, nearly as well as Grundy.

theRealPod

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

Help me

Low on trades this year like most bud.

The Ranger

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

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

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

Maverick_

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

BrownlowBoy

JPK also looks done for the day.

TOPHAWK1

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

BrownlowBoy

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

Cobee Bear

It looked medial

hedski

I have them both 😭

TOPHAWK1

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

Holty01

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

Rooey

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

Olango plz

Pod

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

hedski

ALL IN MY TEAM!!!!

Holty01

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

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

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

hedski

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

Richard

Sunday carnage has struck.

BlueBaggerJosh

Paddy Ryder too

PizzaSafety

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

Luke Ryan is a bloody gun, he going huge today

hedski

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

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

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

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

Rockliff being played deep FWD saved me

Audrey Horne

FFS do something Walters.

Marty

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

Crow94

2422. J Kennedy hurt big time!

Top1000

2560 in the end.

Defying_Madness

2539 for me

BrownlowBoy

2310. Walters, Gray, Kennedy murdered me today.

Russty_

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

TOPHAWK1

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_

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

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_

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

Great effort. You are killing it lately.

Help me

Haha ouch, Abit dumb not taking VC score or ?

Russty_

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

Help me

High on life. You're amazing 🙂

KSinny

2462 with Kennedy and Gray

Russty_

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

KSinny

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

TOPHAWK1

2639 for me at the final siren.

Derek

Good score TH. You dodged all the Sunday carnage

Baby boX

No villains for you then. Luck f#!k

Marty

Awesome score TH.

The Ranger

Great score TH, nice one.

hedski

HUGE TOPPA 👍

TBone_9

2526 with Gray and Walters

BadgerHoney7

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

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

Russty_

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

The Ranger

Shocking Sunday. 2500+ turned into a 2378.

Randomcliche2

Identical to me, Nic Nat Gray Walters #wherearemytrades

Ahmad rubas

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

Number #1

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

Marty

Tough taskmaster!

Sc_Wow

2610

Help me

BS

Russty_

Well done Wow, great score.

Marty

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

Russty_

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

Willymack1234

2622 for me

JohnDJ59

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

Russty_

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

JohnDJ59

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

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

Russty_

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

neil demons delight

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

Holty01

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

HarryH76

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

BlueBaggerJosh

2550

mmmbutch

2624. Very happy

Dogsdik

2488 jpk and walters. Vc’d danget

Sandyf62

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

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

2562 with Walters and Gray. Will take that

SamuraiPizzaCat

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

AuroraBorealis?!

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

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

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

maybe some luck there my friend

hedski

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

hedski

2329. Crap.

Russty_

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

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_

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

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

Claire

Nice Nat season done.

Jpk back spasms.

Gray concussed, nyhius will get 3 weeks.

Sc_Wow

Get a snag?

Russty_

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

Holty01

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

2567 my highest score ever!!!

TOPHAWK1

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.
