Are you Lynnsane? 

Would you prefer to drop short? 

Bravo, will we get a Tye? 

Or are you in the who Carey’s camp? 

Max might go well but make sure Joe doesn’t burn you 

There is sure to weather for all 

Will we have a white night or a Whiteman? 

A slam dunk? 

Ash might make a ton and turn the match.

Alright! I made a team, can someone explain to me how this thing works?

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/12/2018 at 14:00

    Lek in a nutshell.

    Try to get a team on the park each week as at least one team generally has a bye and if you are lucky you might have a couple of blokes who play twice- normally a good capt choice who scores double points same as AFL

    3 trades each week helps and DPP is your friend.

    Other than that hope your players score a few runs or take a few wickets.

    One is guaranteed to drop a turd on a regular basis.

    Enjoy

BrownlowBoy · 21/12/2018 at 13:08

Tye bowled rubbish when playing for Australia
Back to BBL you'd think he'd be able to take at least one wicket per game but no… seems like he has been figured out and might not be as dangerous as he once was. Hopefully he can snare some wickets in his second game, otherwise my captain score is looking very poor.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/12/2018 at 13:55

    Could be worse mate took a bit of gamble on qadir.

    They would have to be two of the worst half trackers i have ever seen. Haven't seen him play b4 but he was ordinary.

    One more game to redeem or it is tell ya story walking pal on sunday

    Got wrong spinner on ground
    Should have started sandeep

    Sangha warming the pine at the other end..

    Always the way …😬

    JEL · 21/12/2018 at 23:47

    Put the VC on Khan, and backed Tye as C. The way it's looking he will struggle to get in 2 games (doubled) what Khan did in one.

    I've got so many spuds I'm looking to start a potato farm.

      Russty_ · 21/12/2018 at 23:52

      Don't worry about it Jolly Jels, still 58 games to go mate…this one is really a marathon.

        JEL · 22/12/2018 at 23:34

        Yep, just trying to get to grips with it.

        I am enjoying the 3 trades each and every week.
        Some starters won't be making it to Rd2!!

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/12/2018 at 15:22

Patto is out Saturday

Russty_ · 21/12/2018 at 20:51

Hey Trigga, Lek, great work getting this thread going cheers fellas, nice intro Trigga, this Sangha kid is something else ay?..why isn't he playing for australia already…I played him on the park luckily, had a few other turdy scores though.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/12/2018 at 20:57

    Thanks Rust

    Thought i better go with make sure Joe doesnt burn you instead of the Joe playing tonight. 🤣

    Will be moving sangha on ground rd 2
    What a waste a ton on the pine.

    Sheesh but yeah kid can bat
    Carey looked sharp straight out of the gate

      Russty_ · 21/12/2018 at 20:59

      Hell yeah mate, Carey was unreal, and although you didn't get Sangha's score, you won't have to shell out extra for next time cause I think he'll go up a fair bit ay?…I had pattinson on the pine with 87

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/12/2018 at 21:09

        Decided against patto as wanted to give him a couple of games to see how he pulled up.

        As he is going to a wedding on Sat and will miss with the next two byes figure will just grab him rd 4.

          Russty_ · 21/12/2018 at 22:24

          Hey Trig, if you select a Captain who's playing twice in a round do you get double points for both their games or not?

            JEL · 21/12/2018 at 23:52

            From the FAQ: You can change your captain and vice captain as often as you like, up until the time that your currently selected captain's (or vice captain's) FIRST match has started for the upcoming round. At this point, your selection is locked in for the round and cannot be changed.

            As you can't change him, I'd expect to get double for both games.

              Russty_ · 21/12/2018 at 23:56

              Cheers Jolly…thanks mate…guess I'll find out after this week 🙂

            TRIGGA_HAPPY · 22/12/2018 at 17:53

            Yep * 2
            Always a good idea to pick a bloke with the double

Russty_ · 21/12/2018 at 22:41

How about this Sams guy?…will have to bring in this week, even at his higher price than week 1, he looks good.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 22/12/2018 at 08:39

    I think he is part cat
    Used all his 9 lives

    NEIL demons delight · 22/12/2018 at 12:12

    hI Russty /Trigg Sams was good BBL 7 that's why I got him in and you will need some Thunder players soon . wouldn't go super big on Adelaide this week as we will need sixers as well. Great intro TRIGG will sort out the problems Sangers a must now as is Labby cheers boys good luck tough gig BBL NDD

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 22/12/2018 at 15:51

      Pretty even first 4 rounds got about 3 in each with the heat boys to be shown the door rd 2

AuroraBorealis?! · 22/12/2018 at 19:54

Is there a three round delay before prices change in this or is it immediate?

    Russty_ · 22/12/2018 at 20:09

    Hey AB, it's from the first week in this game..it's all in the rules if you click on the question mark on the left.

Russty_ · 22/12/2018 at 20:16

Hey Neil you're killing it this week mate, I'm doing ok, but have 3 dragging my score down, Whiteman who is a complete spud, 19 for 2 games, Qadir who scored 5 and then got dropped for the second game, my backup score for his game miss was Pope with 3 lol, and Henriques who made 2 with the bat and then didn't bowl or field because of injury.
Being a novice at this I'm not too unhappy, I still picked, Short, Sangha, Carey, Agar and Khan..and some half decent rookies..much to learn, it's fun though.

    NEIL demons delight · 22/12/2018 at 20:30

    Lot of luck mate but you have to stick to your game plan No good dumping Franklin after 2 games.Its the same here you nabbed some good ones bud. As you say lots of fun

      Russty_ · 22/12/2018 at 20:36

      Hey Neil, do you have to do whatever it takes to get a full squad on the field each week, even if it means dumping a good player?
      EG: Dumping a player with a bye coming up to get the cash to get another good player?

      P.S, what's usually a strong score for a week mate?

        NEIL demons delight · 22/12/2018 at 22:36

        that's right Russty but you should have a strategy and don't waiver regardless of good or bad scores Last year 50 per player which means 600 plus your DGP's i.e.BH and SCORCHERS .In my case 7 around 950 Unlike AFL more goes haywire .like rain ,last minute dumpings Test players and little time to fix it. It's a tough gig mate far harder than AFL cheers Russty

BrownlowBoy · 23/12/2018 at 09:26

What trades have people got planned?

I'm thinking gotta get Short in for his double game next week, do we go get him this week or wait until next week?

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/12/2018 at 10:04

    Trading qadir (5) yipee and lynn

    Tale of the tape
    7 and 5 on ground for two players 180 wasted on the bench for two players

    Started darcy class is class…

      BrownlowBoy · 23/12/2018 at 10:13

      How many double gamers you got Trig?

      Personally I'm thinking Tye, Lynn, McCullum to Abbott in preparation for next week, Sangha and Carey.

      Will give me only 3 double gamers though… maybe should bring in Neser instead of Abbott?

        BrownlowBoy · 23/12/2018 at 11:31

        On second thought, going Tye, Lynn, McCullum to Carey, Short (Adel) and Neser/Laughlin

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/12/2018 at 22:35

        4 traded in short for mccullum

    NEIL demons delight · 23/12/2018 at 11:24

    Hi B B Getting SHORT in for next week sounds good but he does have 2 byes round 4 and 7 I am opting for the Adelaide version.

      BrownlowBoy · 23/12/2018 at 11:33

      G'day NDD, yeah I've done the same! Adelaide Short also bowls a bit which will be handy!

      What other inclusions are you making this week, and how many double gamers have you managed to get on the park?

      I've managed to get 5 now.

        NEIL demons delight · 23/12/2018 at 13:38

        I got 7 this week and tossing up whether 3 or 4 then go big with sixers. Hurricanes are a trap but Short does offer captain s choice.

          BrownlowBoy · 23/12/2018 at 15:10

          How did you manage 7 strikers?

            NEIL demons delight · 23/12/2018 at 16:27

            Sorry B B 3 HEAT 4 scorchers Thought you mean't last week which we are still in so next week Strikers play the Gades which is tonite SUNDAY so we must be in next week already HELP

    Finnius · 23/12/2018 at 12:24

    im hoping he drops a bit in price and so can pick him up for a little bit cheaper next round. Even if he gets a 40 odd will drop 10-20k.

Finnius · 23/12/2018 at 12:23

I've started well fellas – 8 heat/scorchers players means I pumped out a 1107 and jumped to rank 316. Willey and Denly the villains for me. Lynn, Rahman, and burns to joffra, mcdermott, and Ingram (hurricanes for the double game in round 3). I have 4 strikers for the double (Captain Carey, Stanlake, Rashid and Ingram).

I think Matt Short could be a good option as well – bowling and batting in the top 4. Ingram is a bit cheaper though and goes at a good strike rate. I need the cash to bring in DARCY Short next round for the 'canes' double. Will then have 3 hurricanes and 4 sixers.

I'm planning ahead to make sure I always have as many players playing twice as possible. Having 36 trades helps as well!

I'm getting into the big bash fantasy this season. There's a little bit more luck in it than AFL though. Good luck everyone taking part 🙂

    NEIL demons delight · 23/12/2018 at 13:58

    Well done to you Finnius mighty score and to Russty Trgg TOPPA and Saint GATOR Gat and myself were complete rubbish last year but learn't a lot keep it up gator. I still think this game helps with the main one. It teaches discipline It would be so easy to grab Short but that doesn't fit my plan.. 1107 is tops mate and to have those 4 strikers and 7 sixers/canes is first class you will be right up there. I was 100 less and have 4 strikers also but SHORT in lieu of Stanlake The next week I have 5 sixers and 2 canes, my reason being the canes have 2 imminent byes. Keep it going son NDD

      gator59 · 23/12/2018 at 14:40

      well done neil you're flying after round 1 but it does help to have some sort of plan in place and then it's all luck from there.. good luck mate

Russty_ · 23/12/2018 at 20:22

Nice work from Weatherald running out Carey by 18 metres…thanks for that!..hopefully Carey can get a few catches and or stumpings, quite a few of us have the C on Carey…should've went with Kahn I think.

    AuroraBorealis?! · 23/12/2018 at 20:24

    Yeah looks like kahn might have been the better choice, although if Carey goes huge in the other game this round it'll be fine

      Russty_ · 23/12/2018 at 20:28

      For sure AB, at least we have the chance of 10 points for the catch and 15 for a stumping still from Carey this game, and hopefully a buttload of runs in the second game 🙂

    Finnius · 23/12/2018 at 20:53

    i had the c on him rusty… Thought with the glovework he'd be slightly better than rashid. Ingram over short hurts as well.

      NEIL demons delight · 24/12/2018 at 11:40

      gedday fellas Thanks to White telling us they put an extra leftie in to combat Khan I changed to Carey Still that wont be the last time you back the wrong guy. Not going to deviate from the game plan hopefully will teach me about A F L game plan PRESERVE TRADES AT ALL COSTS Carey may still do O K feel a bit like Derek at present cant pick a captain NDD

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 24/12/2018 at 17:41

        You are not alone there NDD though best thing about a capt with the double is he gets another shot

        Trading system this year is start with a few players on the double in the first 4 weeks and trade bye or under performers 1, 2, 3.

        1 – plays this week
        2 – plays next week
        3 – plays in two weeks

        Nailed em this week

        Short – striker
        Archer
        Ferguson.

        Sometimes you get a bit of luck and things turn out your way…

        Sometimes. 😏

          NEIL demons delight · 25/12/2018 at 11:28

          Correct me if I am wrong Trigg but last year you won the cup and I won the VFL trophy and both were whitewashes where they virtually rolled over. Trouble is near the tail it starts to impinge on A F L and that's our main game JLT is thereabouts training rookies there is a lot to absorb and BBL suffers Pity cause I rather enjoy the challenge Another thing about the game is to nail the cash cows early NDD

        Russty_ · 24/12/2018 at 19:04

        Hey Neil, yep picked the wrong one but dem's the breaks, Bravo has been a real spud for me too, he's gone next week for sure.

          NEIL demons delight · 25/12/2018 at 11:19

          The FLYING FINN is right maybe it applies to both shorts any way I came up a little short.

Finnius · 24/12/2018 at 16:59

Not starting with short looks like a mistake right about now…

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 24/12/2018 at 17:14

AuroraBorealis?! · 24/12/2018 at 17:12

Ben Dunk is looking like a spud

    BrownlowBoy · 25/12/2018 at 10:40

    He is hot trash I dunno who I suggested it to but I told someone he wasn't good.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 25/12/2018 at 14:21

      I was hoping that he'd score decently because he would be high up the order this season

        BrownlowBoy · 26/12/2018 at 08:52

        He was opening last year as well and did nothing. Stars are useless.

Russty_ · 26/12/2018 at 18:23

Hey guys, will you hold Carey next week or trade him out? (Strikers and Heat have a bye next week).
Could bring Butler in for him or attend to more important issues, Philippe could cover for Carey.
Don't know much about BBL…Is it better to trade good players to get a stronger team on the park that week or save them for the week after their bye?..that being said, I fully intend to field a full team.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 26/12/2018 at 18:39

    Hey mate. The way I roll in BBL is class is class.
    So will keep (pun?) Carey till round 7 with phillippe to get first crack. If bombs will sub butler for carey.

    I sorta work with the next level down with my trades so.will be looking at trading weatherald to huges.

    As i told NDD my plan is 1,2,3 this year …

    But that is just me.

    Different strokes. Different strategies.

      Russty_ · 26/12/2018 at 18:55

      Hi Trig thanks mate, yeah I think class is class too, agree with you on that one although trades don't seem to be as valuable in the BBL, guess I'll learn my lesson at the end of the season depending on where I end up, at the moment I don't know whether to go for it or hang onto my good ones, with the result of losing games…lol, it's a tough one this gig, thanks again.

      Is it most important to have as many guys playing double games in the current week?

        NEIL demons delight · 27/12/2018 at 00:05

        You are right Russty Its a hard call but I think I will dump d short when he has his bye to get AHMED and Watson then get him back The trick is to get him back being nearly 300k must have a kitty Its a learning curve mate NDD

Lekdog · 26/12/2018 at 19:05

        If you see this Neil, my advice is to make an IntenseDebate account and comment through that. For some reason the filters don't like you at the moment?!?!

          neil demons delight · 28/12/2018 at 11:20

          Think I am ok now and my supercoach account is back to normal Big thanks to Lek and Russty It's only a game but we enjoy it Russty I will delete those jokes as they come but for your interest I met the guy who sends them to me 20 years back having a punch up over a girl Silly me he is 200 cm but he seen my demon hat and we became great mates till this day. Turns out he played CHF in the 1964 Granny for Melbourne got dropped and never heard of again. He lives next to Harrison house opposite the G and the older players still communicate especially TODD V. the interesting thing is I was told Pruesse will be your next cox. He will take the forward ruck and has been killing Max Gawn at training. You can back it in Maxy will have a few holidays when they play interstate. Grundy and Nank for me thanks again fellas.NDD

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/12/2018 at 08:28

    Had 5 this round
    Sometimes the double chance isnt all its cracked up to be.

    They do get another shot but they would need to improve one helluva lot.

    Took a risk and whacked the VC on denly as he was due

    That worked well 🙄

    Darcy is da man.

      TOPHAWK1 · 28/12/2018 at 19:14

      Hi Trigga. I am going Darcy Short captain as well. Picked two dud captains in the first two rounds so third time lucky. (Or else) Took a punt tonight and bought in Fawad Ahmed from the the Thunder. The Thunder have no byes and a double header next round. The Hurricanes chasing might get Fahwad into the game. Great start by you and Demons delight and you in the State of Origin league. There are a few amateurs in there but most coaches are dead serious. Should be a great battle. Cheers mate.

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 28/12/2018 at 21:42

        Cheers thanks for invite hawk.

        Brought in wade at 6.30 tonight

        Will replace carey as keeper rd 7.

        U know me mate. Not worth doing unless it is done properly. 😁

          TOPHAWK1 · 28/12/2018 at 23:21

          Love your work mate!

      Russty_ · 29/12/2018 at 18:45

      Hey Trigs, get Darcy in the Aussie side opening the batting in the next test I say…Finch unfortunately just ain't up to it.

Big fact hunt · 28/12/2018 at 07:20

Just to help a little if you are organised correctly you can loophole your captain and vice captain. For this to work you need to keep two non players on the bench for one line preferable bye players.

neil demons delight · 28/12/2018 at 11:43

trying intense account here's hoping

Russty_ · 29/12/2018 at 18:23

It's a shame the Australian Test Team doesn't have more guys like Pat Cummins in their squad, they are looking seriously not good enough at the moment, get some Big Bash players in there I say.

    TOPHAWK1 · 29/12/2018 at 18:47

    Yeah. Australia's current batting line up is brittle as my grandmas's bones. I reckon Finch needs to go. Mathew Wade needs to come in and play as a batsman. Hughes and Khawaja to open, then S Marsh at 3, Wade (4), Head (5) Mitch Marsh (6) and Paine at 7.

      Russty_ · 29/12/2018 at 19:12

      Agree Finch has to go Trigs…just doesn't have the technique necessary for Test Cricket…If he's a slogger he should've stayed a slogger, like Warner was when he first got into the Test squad. I don't think Paine should even be in there let alone Keeper, ( and especially Captain), his keeping and batting is a bit ordinary, he doesn't move his feet enough, dives too much..(keeping)..misses too many chances, and his batting isn't really good enough for national level.

    Rick Grimes · 29/12/2018 at 20:33

    Top order just not prepared to bat time. India showed how to do it, was boring but effective. Aus either unwilling, or unable to grind it out.

TOPHAWK1 · 29/12/2018 at 18:54

Denly, Edwards, and Phillipe better pull their fingers out with the bat shortly. All 3 bloody pathetic in the first game. The same goes for owners of Daniel Hughes and Moises Henriques. Another two passengers.

    Russty_ · 29/12/2018 at 19:09

    Yeah I had Edwards and Philipe in from the start, Everyone keeps saying how talented Edwards is but he keeps getting out in dumb ways, hope the young fellas can turn it around tonight.

Russty_ · 29/12/2018 at 19:16

Another dumb dismissal for Edwards…I've lost patience with him…he's gone next round.

    TOPHAWK1 · 29/12/2018 at 19:20

    Yep. He Edwards is getting punted. No runs, not making cash. Fark off. Praying Denly can keep going.

      Russty_ · 29/12/2018 at 19:28

      Bad luck mate, Denly's a gonner.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 29/12/2018 at 19:29

Putrid Sixers!

    Russty_ · 29/12/2018 at 19:32

    I guess if a state has 2 teams one of them has to suck! 7 overs for 30…that's a bit sad.

    Russty_ · 29/12/2018 at 22:03

    Pretty bad…smelly Renegades even worse!

Rick Grimes · 29/12/2018 at 20:31

Christian is worth having for catches alone. Looking forward to seeing Harvey bat. He's a talent.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 30/12/2018 at 14:07

    Edwards harvey trade looks to be a good one.

    Time for a sixers cull

    Denly, edwards and henriques i reckon will all be shown the door.

    Off with their heads … ⚔😖

WTFoxtrot_58 · 30/12/2018 at 16:32

This game is doing my head in.

    Russty_ · 30/12/2018 at 21:26

    Your'e doing alright this week in my league mate,..pretty solid side, maybe just get rid of dunk.

neil demons delight · 30/12/2018 at 22:12

bad luck mate probably wont see this

BrownlowBoy · 31/12/2018 at 08:41

Short, Wade, Edwards to Sams, Buttler and Sangha this week!

    dontblushbaby · 31/12/2018 at 12:34

    I was lucky to already have Sams and Butler , bought back Lynn and Khan with Sangha , I can afford to put Short on the bench for this week.

    TOPHAWK1 · 31/12/2018 at 17:59

    I have Buttler and Sangha already. Just need Sams. I punted Willey, Faulkner, and Wade and had just enough cash to grab Sams, Zampa, and Mc Kenzie Harvey. These trades enabled me to keep Darcy Short on the bench.

    Russty_ · 31/12/2018 at 18:21

    I'm bringing wade in this week..lol, wanted to secure him before he increases too much, also brought Mckenzie Harvey in, looks like he has potential to be a cow.

TOPHAWK1 · 31/12/2018 at 18:00

Who are we going for as captain this week? Buttler or Sams? Bloody tough call. Buttler could go big at the Adelaide oval with those short offside and square leg boundaries. Thoughts?

    dontblushbaby · 31/12/2018 at 18:14

    The Butler did it , at least I hope he does

    Russty_ · 31/12/2018 at 18:17

    Hey Hawk, Yeah Buttler looks in blistering form…hope Sangha does some good things this week too.

gator59 · 31/12/2018 at 18:36

What if Sams runs through the Strikers and they need feck all to win … Butler goes cheaply for 5

    dontblushbaby · 31/12/2018 at 18:50

    So your POD is Sams ?

    Russty_ · 31/12/2018 at 18:53

    Hey Gat….then Buttler will get 3 catches lol, plus a stumping… points and still make runs.
    I reckon Buttler or Sams would be good Caps.

      gator59 · 31/12/2018 at 18:55

      Yep either one russty

Russty_ · 31/12/2018 at 20:23

Hey Neil, nice work keeping the faith with Ingram, he really came through for you tonight 🙂

    neil demons delight · 31/12/2018 at 20:51

    wish I could reply

    neil demons delight · 01/01/2019 at 11:32

    Hey Russty revived an intense debate account from way back Lets see if it works My comments only last a few mins 11 32 now

      Lekdog · 01/01/2019 at 20:27

      Hey mate, I can see your comment, it is still getting hit by the spam filter which is frustrating…might be the device you're on? I'll keep an eye on things and unspam you each time!

BrownlowBoy · 01/01/2019 at 10:04

Sams as C worked a treat.

My opinion – always go a bowler over a batsmen, if the batsmen won't bowl at all.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 01/01/2019 at 12:23

HAPPY NEW YEAR ONE AND ALL!!

2019 MAY JUST BE MIGHTY FINE.

    Russty_ · 01/01/2019 at 20:20

    Happy New Year Trigg..and everyone else, good day to just chill and watch a few games of Cricket:)

    Happy New Year mate!

    neil demons delight · 01/01/2019 at 22:44

    Happy new year boys Having a great tussle with both Tophawk and DBB might come down to captains choice

    TOPHAWK1 · 01/01/2019 at 23:23

    Happy new year mate! Chasing Demons delight in the BBL State of Origin 2 League round 4 match up tonight. A nice fight but he will prevail. I just like to keep him honest for the 2019 AFL Supercoach season. Bring it on!
    TH

      neil demons delight · 02/01/2019 at 07:02

      You certainly are keeping me honest Down to the wire tophawk

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 02/01/2019 at 22:41

Ahhhhh! Coulda, shoulda but didnt 😖

Plan was simple.
VC on butler if goes alright first game C on wade with carey on the bench. Part 2 worked perfect.
But i blame bbl for putting a game on new years eve.

After a few sherbies who has time to concentrate on BBL?
VC was on butler but the C remained on khan!
First game locked in.

First and last time i start sanga.
2 and 4 on ground. Henriques and turner on the pine. 6 on ground 170 on bench.

Just cant pick it this year.

Oh well trade, Reload and have another crack.

Kudos if you brought lynn straight back in.

Do we reckon khan will miss at least the next 2-3?

    neil demons delight · 02/01/2019 at 22:56

    Interesting trigg Who was going to get the c

    Russty_ · 03/01/2019 at 01:05

    News reports say he's lining up against the renegades, and might not return home at all. Thought he would've at least missed one game for the funeral, but maybe things are different in his culture.
    P.S, you still beat me even with the bunged Captain choice lol, well done, that Fawad dude really came through for ya…and that Cartright is getting booted for me.

TOPHAWK1 · 02/01/2019 at 23:05

Congrats Neil! A well deserved victory. I threw everything at you and the kitchen sink to boot. Not even Ashton Turner could have saved me tonight. Still have Darcy Short. May we meet again at the pointy end of the BBL season. Cheers mate.

    neil demons delight · 03/01/2019 at 00:54

    thanks mate great contest short/shin/harper for khan phillipe/ Lam

    Russty_ · 03/01/2019 at 16:47

    Hey Hawk, I'm sure he'd answer you if he could but he keeps getting locked out of here and can't post, been happening for weeks now.

BrownlowBoy · 03/01/2019 at 08:57

Interesting week this week with no double games – means the VC and C loophole will be vital.

Probably means my trades will be centred around next weeks double gamers.

OUT: Khan (if he goes home), Willey, Sandeep (has left to play in a different comp) for Lynn, McCullum and Nabi.

    Russty_ · 03/01/2019 at 16:44

    Hey BB, are you purposefully having 2 non playing players on the bench so you can do the loophole thing?..cause it's only the lowest score you get on the bench. is it better to have non playing players on the bench?… cause all mine are playing bar 1, I thought it was better to try and make money off the rookies.cheers.

      BrownlowBoy · 04/01/2019 at 09:38

      Every one of my players is playing. I decided to go Sandeep and Sams to Nabi and Christian. VC on Khan. If Khan scored well (which he did), I'll trade Willey to a guy named Devcich who plays for the Thunder who will be playing from round 7 onwards when Root and Buttler leave for international duties. Then that gives me a loophole for this week to get Khan's score, whilst also saving me a trade in round 7 to bring someone else in instead as I will already have Devcich.

        Russty_ · 04/01/2019 at 20:14

        Sounds like you've thought it through mate, too complicated for me…I'm just trying to learn the ropes this year 🙂

          BrownlowBoy · 06/01/2019 at 08:17

          It is complicated but I just spend a bit of time trying to plan ahead! Hopefully helps in the long run! I'm set up nicely this week for the Heat and Gades double, with Christian, Nabi, Harvey, Bryant, Patto already in my side and looking to bring in Lynn, Ur Rahman and whoever else I can snare

Russty_ · 03/01/2019 at 18:42

I know this might seem overly critical to some people but after watching the Test match today, I don't think the Aussie Bowlers bowled very well at all today, all the quicks bowled too short and wide, all day and Lyon bowler mostly a legside line, that new guy Marnus, was just all over the place, probably due to nerves.
Hazelwood got the first wicket with a good length ball, one of the few bowled for the whole day.
His second wicket was a rank short legside ball, resulting in Kohli getting caught behind.
Lyon got his only wicket after getting slogged and then it was one slog too many…caught at long on.
Starc had an unusually rearing ball after bowling short yet again…lucky I think.
Marnus, was all over the shop, dragging them down and bowling full tosses.

In a game where the Aussies had to win to prevent India winning the series, it seems like a really undisciplined, lame effort.
Why didn't the Captain or Coach intervene during the day and tell the bowlers to tighten up their lines, or change them completely?

I think the selectors should've changed up their pace attack and tried some new blood, keep Cummins in, but maybe try Pattinson and Meredith …couldn't have done any worse than the old guard did today.
At 4 for 304, India are in a very strong position…we will lose or draw this Test match if we're lucky, which means we lose the series.

The Bowler's discipline today was shoddy, like they didn't care all that much…pretty sad to witness.

Changes need to be made.

    Russty_ · 03/01/2019 at 20:34

    Beuller?..Beuller?…ah I give up…no one cares about Cricket…lol

      dontblushbaby · 03/01/2019 at 22:59

      Just read this Russty, I agree with everything you say, and to back it up the Aussies may go through the series without a LBW wicket !

        Russty_ · 03/01/2019 at 23:20

        Hi DBB, not surprised mate when they can't seem to bowl at the stumps, how could there be any more pressure than bowling at the stumps?…mind boggling..even Lyon isn't utilising his skills, every ball was ending up on the legside, easy for a half decent batsman to play away to the on side for runs.
        We need Bowlers like Glenn Mcgrath, who may not be superfast but know how to home in on the pegs.

neil demons delight · 04/01/2019 at 12:25

Once again posting to see if I am out of solitary lonely here with 66.Told Russty that BBL involves more luck than talent If Billings misses from a metre out early doors he has time to kick 5 but if Short with the C is bowled by Lehmann with a rank hop then good bye . As there are only 11 players you cannot carry 3 BAD LUCK calls It puts you off by 2 -3 hundred and adios league games and a slide by thousands in rank.. Contrary to opinion luck plays a huge part in BBL. cheers boys NDD

neil demons delight · 04/01/2019 at 14:13

The Doc reckons he will be back stronger next year Maybe he should play a year for the mighty Phillip island doggies NDD

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 04/01/2019 at 17:11

This round will sort out our teams and how we r travelling.

No byes, no doubles how it should be!

Traded short to sams last round which worked out ok.

Took a gamble and brought in curran and bravo rather than short and a $100k player.

Will see who scores more tonight. 🙈😱

Also going wade as capt. He is in career form and is striking them as clean as anyone

And of course i traded huges this week – 😤
Never fails…..

    Russty_ · 04/01/2019 at 20:45

    Hey Trigg, yeah I hear ya…not knowing a lot about this BBL game, I find myself chasing points lol, but that's ok, just busting my cherry, Curran did ok with the bat, if he takes 3 for, you've got a damn good score tonight.
    BTW I traded Bravo out just before he started scoring points haha

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 04/01/2019 at 21:56

      Whoops.

      Someone once said class is class

      Wise man. Shoulda listened.
      Though if Bravo scores well might break even.

        Russty_ · 04/01/2019 at 22:01

        Pretty happy with Darcy as Captain tonight though…he came through again.

neil demons delight · 04/01/2019 at 20:44

Russty_ · 05/01/2019 at 18:54

Can't believe Darcy Short didn't make the One Day International squad to play India …Finch and the 2 Marsh's get selected ahead of him..3 batsmen out of form, oh well, may as well top off the season with a loss in that as well lol.

    dontblushbaby · 05/01/2019 at 19:25

    They have no idea, they say they pick on form ?

      Russty_ · 05/01/2019 at 20:09

      More like who you know rather than what you've done I'd say DBB.

    WTFoxtrot_58 · 05/01/2019 at 19:58

    I heard Finch is buying into Krispy Kremes…

      Russty_ · 05/01/2019 at 20:13

      Bummer mate, any way you can live stream it?

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 05/01/2019 at 20:10

    I dropped him from my team as I thought he would be a cert to play for Aust.

    Now have to work out a way to bring him back in tomorrow as wont miss any bbl now.

      Russty_ · 05/01/2019 at 20:15

      Unreal isn't it Trig?…I would've thought he'd be a lock, but Finch is in…and Captain?…wtf

      WTFoxtrot_58 · 05/01/2019 at 20:38

      Round 7 bye for the Canes

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 05/01/2019 at 21:15

        Nice one WT.

        didn't take that into account as thought darcy would be playing the one dayers.

        Something to think about now.
        On the double round 8.

    neil demons delight · 05/01/2019 at 20:19

    And he is a decent bowler too

WTFoxtrot_58 · 05/01/2019 at 19:57

No Big Bash on free to air in country SA….disappointing.

    Russty_ · 05/01/2019 at 21:06

    Hey WTF, could you get the Foxtel app to live stream?…much cheaper than a monthly Foxtel subscription, same with the AFL.

WTFoxtrot_58 · 05/01/2019 at 21:26

Thanks Russty
But give Rupert nothing…that's my motto.
I'll take the night off.

    Russty_ · 06/01/2019 at 01:23

    Fair enough mate, understand your passion, unfortunately, that fat phuck has the stranglehold on all foxtel hd and 4K sport now. Footy and Cricket.

Russty_ · 05/01/2019 at 22:38

Glad I got rid or shitewright last week.

Russty_ · 05/01/2019 at 23:48

Kudos to Mitchell Johnson for having a go at commentating but wow, his on air personality is totally different to what his bowling personality was…lol.
I thought he was gonna bore me to death, lucky Heals and Mel Smith were there to keep it half interesting.
Mitch is just a soft spoken teddy bear…with a moustache.

WTFoxtrot_58 · 06/01/2019 at 10:18

When do the one day squad disappear R6 or R7?

TOPHAWK1 · 06/01/2019 at 15:09

Hi guys. I own Stoinis and Maxwell. Both have been selected in the national ODI side. Does anybody know if both players will be pulled out of the Stars Wednesday game? 9-1-2018. Stars play again on Friday 11-1 which is the day before the first ODI against India. If they are both pulled for Wednesday game, both will have to be punted this round. If they play Wednesday, it would only give them 2 full recovery days before the first ODI, so my instinct says they will miss both games. Be great to find out today if possible as I need to trade in Heat and Renegade players who play before the Stars game. Season defining stuff!!! Any intel would be greatly appreciated.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/01/2019 at 15:29

    Go with your gut hawk.

    I have the opposite problem as i punted short and lynn thinking it was a given they would be selected as also have carey and butler so didnt want too many outs in the one round.

    Now have to find a wsy to bring them in.

    At least carey plays tonight so early enough to be selected b4 odi duties.

      TOPHAWK1 · 06/01/2019 at 15:46

      Thanks Trigga. I reckon they will not play on Wednesday. The Stars are playing in Perth too. Maxwell and Stoinis will not travel west and will join the Australian ODI team in Sydney instead. That is what I think will happen. So my issue is Denly, and Buttler playing their last game this round before departing for England duties and Maxwell and Stoinis most likely gone as of now. I think I might punt Denly today, and Stoinis, and Maxwell tomorrow before the Renegades and Heat games. Good luck this round Trigga!

    Russty_ · 06/01/2019 at 18:50

    Hey Hawk, haven't found out conclusively cause they don't really say, but i had Stoinis and punted him, with the first ODI on the 12th I'd think they wouldn't want their selected squad to risk any injury in a BBL game.

      TOPHAWK1 · 06/01/2019 at 19:42

      I agree mate. The fact that they have to travel to Perth is even more reason the selectors will say no way hose. Maxy and Marcus, you are going to Sydney instead!

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/01/2019 at 21:44

    Hawk.
    I read today that the odi players in the bbl wont play in the bbl after the 8th.

    So if u havent already trade, trade the stars.

gator59 · 06/01/2019 at 16:37

Does anyone know if Rashid Khan is playing for the Strikers tonight or has he gone home to be with his family

    Russty_ · 06/01/2019 at 18:46

    Hey Col, he's going to stay here and play every game at the request of his family, he's going to try and get back home during their round 8 bye week.

      gator59 · 06/01/2019 at 19:14

      Thanks Russty … Great that I don't have to trade out any players this round

        Russty_ · 06/01/2019 at 19:16

        No probs mate, good luck for this round.

BrownlowBoy · 06/01/2019 at 19:18

Carey gone for 1… another run out. Anyone unlucky to have him?

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 06/01/2019 at 19:36

    How many is that so far for Carey ?
    3? 4?

    Must hate batting with weatharld

      TOPHAWK1 · 06/01/2019 at 19:45

      Dont have Carey. But I think that is 3 run outs for Carey now. Poor bugger. I had him when he was run out the first time and had the C on him. Glad I am not suffering this time!

    Russty_ · 06/01/2019 at 19:57

    punted him for Buttler before the rd 3 bye, glad i didn't get him back in..very unlucky, Guy I'm playing this week has him bad luck there jolly.

    AuroraBorealis?! · 06/01/2019 at 20:55

    Yeah i have him, unlucky

Russty_ · 06/01/2019 at 20:04

Was tossing up between getting Weatherald in today, he's still cheap and seems to be in great form…probs should've but only want to target mostly DPPs…lol already on 70 points.
Sucks a bit how they don't award any bonus points to batsmen who score a 50…that should be worth an extra 10 points I reckon.

Russty_ · 06/01/2019 at 22:10

Sixers won that easily, I reckon Khan should've come on way earlier, to get some quick wickets, and slow the scoring, pressure was largely off by the time he had his spell..Shitey captaincy.

neil demons delight · 06/01/2019 at 22:41

YES I AM BACK Thanks for your efforts LEK and I agree the sites welfare comes first Happy new year folks Russty and GAT must be sick of me and my emails and texts Thanks fellas. It was getting a bit too much in solitary— .66 is bad company. I was worried the real stuff might not even happen The forum's help and banter in a big part in AFL supercoach Whilst BBL fills a void AFL is better and rewards skill and research more Some great games being played out and TRIGG you and me are going to go to the wire Shame about SHORT though That happens a lot in BBL GOOD TO BE BACK NDD woo haa

    gator59 · 07/01/2019 at 13:41

    Great to see you back mate and hope your dreams come true in 2019

      neil demons delight · 07/01/2019 at 15:54

      Better chance than the Saints mate Remember this time 2 years back ,we were saying how they would play for a finals berth.Your team is annoying with the constant bad calls Big Boy was bad enough but why isn't Pruese there or Kelly . though you do have a few Ned Kellys on the board. good luck to your mob mate NDD

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/01/2019 at 13:50

    I reckon you have me covered NDD

    Good to have u back mate

      neil demons delight · 07/01/2019 at 16:06

      Thanks great to be back mate Believe me when this site functions well it kills the one I went to .except in that short period there were no trolls or spam. One thing that was good and has been brought up here recently is they had all the squads as they dropped . No more Gator asking if KHAN was to be included .or Toppa with Maxwell . good luck no hang on I am playing you see you in the finals cheers NDD

    Russty_ · 07/01/2019 at 17:13

    Hey big Neil, good to see you mate, yeah I agree, supercoach isn't much fun without a bunch of knowledgeable like minded people to talk about it with, makes it much more fun and helps out with your team if you don't have time for research or need some wise opinions from long time players.
    Cheers to Lek too for sorting it out and the new format looks great. 🙂

      neil demons delight · 07/01/2019 at 19:02

      thanks for your efforts too interacting with LEK Looks great give credit there has mummy done his hammy?

        Russty_ · 07/01/2019 at 19:10

        Yeah low grade Hammy strain, returns to training late January…missing the 1st 2 games anyway so should be right…are you starting him?

          no GRUNDY/GOLDY

BrownlowBoy · 07/01/2019 at 11:42

Hopefully Nabi performs this week! Been a bit inconsistent so fingers crossed. Brought him in last week and he crapped himself so hopefully this week?

How many double gamers do people have this week?
I've currently got 8 onfield, so hoping for a big week, even though double gamers doesn't always ensure big points!

Took a risk, brought in Baz McCullum. Horribly out of form but super cheap – thought it was worth the punt.

Lynn (C), McCullum, Ur Rahman, Patto, Bryant, Christian, Nabi, Shinwari

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/01/2019 at 13:54

    8 BB that's large.
    Ive gone the other way filling my team with proven performers as tried the loading for byes method but sometimes they score single digits both games so the proven would have been the better option.

      BrownlowBoy · 07/01/2019 at 17:41

      Yeah could pay off or could bite me, just reckon 2 bites at the cherry is better than 1!

        neil demons delight · 07/01/2019 at 19:03

        whats your team name BB

          BrownlowBoy · 07/01/2019 at 19:39

          Jesus Gilchrist

    Russty_ · 07/01/2019 at 17:08

    Hey BB, got 5 here but leaving 1 out this week..so just the 4 onfield.

neil demons delight · 07/01/2019 at 15:46

couldn't agree more about Baz. At the very least a bargain benchie and must be remembered he has played fewer games and is a fallen prem,not a rising avo type who may or may not get there Good call B B Hope I am not playing you NDD

    BrownlowBoy · 07/01/2019 at 17:43

    G'day Neil!

    Yeah I looked and was surprised to see how cheap he is. His break even is around 30 so hoping the double game round gets him into some form. For someone with his credentials, thought it would be a crime to not bring him in.

      neil demons delight · 07/01/2019 at 19:06

      Shh BB though I think it sticks out Your maths is spot on I thought high 20's as a cut off

Russty_ · 07/01/2019 at 17:05

No probs mate and good to see you back!…liking the new format, looks good 🙂

Russty_ · 07/01/2019 at 19:27

Onya Wade!…hope short can do something.
UUUrgh!…this week's a bust for me already.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/01/2019 at 19:37

Was always gonna happen

Cant take a trick this season

Hurricanes are cane toads in the gades

AuroraBorealis?! · 07/01/2019 at 21:34

When you trade in Lynn for his double and forget to captain him. It's ok though, i've got the C on Short, he's bound to make at least 50 against a hapless renegades side! ……oh sorry whats that? He's out for 2…. great

    Russty_ · 08/01/2019 at 20:57

    That's rough AB, hey what's your Team name btw? You won't be the only one who chose the wrong Captain this week, mine's not looking too good either.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 09/01/2019 at 22:34

      Mines Scorpions Russty, and i agree, this week looks like a rough one for a lot of teams.

        Russty_ · 09/01/2019 at 22:56

        I'm sitting on Cutting as captain, 6 so far with a washed out game, no runs and no bowling, hoping he has a blinder in the second game haha.
        I was this far — away from whacking the C on Lynn too. doh.

neil demons delight · 08/01/2019 at 07:14

Only my opinion but both Wade and Short are proven guns at the short form Wouldn't be to concerned ,after all Canes are the best team in it

    Russty_ · 08/01/2019 at 18:05

    Hey mate, yeah I won't be trading em but they sure wrecked my score this week..can be a bit of a yoyo this game lol.

      neil demons delight · 08/01/2019 at 18:22

      would you trade Billings if he ever played a bad game

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 08/01/2019 at 18:36

        Wouldn't have him in my team 🙉

        Russty_ · 08/01/2019 at 19:27

        Didn't have a problem with that last year haha

neil demons delight · 08/01/2019 at 19:32

Lynn is the key to all my leagues .like TRIGG in ORIGIN He plays well I lose Surprised no one has Sams

    Russty_ · 08/01/2019 at 20:16

    Mate, just out of interest…why didn't you put the C on a double gamer this week?

      neil demons delight · 09/01/2019 at 01:54

      I had Cristian 5 min before the bounce Checked who was captain in my leagues and only Trigg didn't have Short so I went with Short`Second time I have done that.. Seperates the corn from the chaff

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 09/01/2019 at 09:42

        Musta been 3 minutes b4 game.
        I brought in short. 🙄

        Was going to go nabi, lynn and murjeeeb
        But after watching short destroy my team rd 5, thought had to have him.

        Only saving grace – had the vc on him. Phew.

          neil demons delight · 09/01/2019 at 13:21

          Sorry mate should have clarified it. All my leagues except your good self had short as CAPTAIN. I doubt changing from Christian will be the difference but it has cost me 50 points so far How the hell did you get him anyway

            TRIGGA HAPPY · 09/01/2019 at 13:33

            Ahh I see.

            Had to trade ahmed which really didnt want to do but needed to find some cash.

            Figured patto could move off the bench at b4-5 and traded in green.

            With some key bowlers on odi duties for the scorchers may get a gig.

            If not can use as vc loop as scorchers play late next couple of weeks.

            Butler to short as he leaves bbl.next week anyways.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 08/01/2019 at 21:40

    I got him mate.

    Reckon i got about 7-8 keepers from here on in.
    Will back them in to outscore rookies on a double.

    Will trade and mix and match the bye players with the doubles moving forward.

    Nice work bringing in Baz.

Russty_ · 08/01/2019 at 20:08

Good move if you brought Baz Mcullum in this week..looking like a big one.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 08/01/2019 at 21:24

    As the song goes

    The heat is on!

neil demons delight · 09/01/2019 at 02:43

Yes Russty I had McCULLUM and last nights shortened game just proves why BBL supercoach is a game of luck and unlike AFL doesn't reward dedicated coaches. A lucky toss got me McCullum's score yet when the game was shortened Thunder bats and Heat bowlers got sweet F/A — NOT FAIR in my book Thunder bowlers and Heat bats (the one's who have already scored) should be adjusted accordingly .BBL is a fun game for leagues only not rank. A level fields fantasy game like A F L rewards talent, dedication and research unlike BBL which doesn't and relies on a lucky bat call. I feel for the leaders who had thunder BATS and Heat BOWLERS That's the reason why you don't have the J R top footy rankers playing It's a waste of their efforts but still a bit of fun before the real stuff Cheers NDD

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 09/01/2019 at 09:36

    True dat
    Too hard and too much luck involved to have a serious crack at rank.

    As a top run scorer can get a belta of a ball early ie short this round or a bowler can either get belted early or pick up a couple of cheapies late.

    Good to see patto back and steaming in

    But it is fun to go hth with the lads

    Baby bash brother looks like a chip off the old block. 😁

      neil demons delight · 09/01/2019 at 11:53

      But really TRIGG Patto was on fire and you no doubt lost points Also do forget price movements are affected also Patto will go south and McCULLUM north

BrownlowBoy · 09/01/2019 at 09:21

Had all 3 of the Heat top order, after brining in Lynn C and punting on Baz McCullum.

The vital part of this was the Heat batting first.

Sometimes you get lucky, so I'm happy I'm on this side of it for a change.

    neil demons delight · 09/01/2019 at 11:47

    One of the earlier rounds I was also on the right side BB and this round had McCullum so can't complain . but in a cash league I would. If the THUNDER only bat for 5 overs and the game was decided on those equivalent 5 overs then so should supercoach Reduce all players in the first innings to 5 overs that means = give them one quarter of their supercoach score LYNN would be 45 as captain. I really believe people like TRIGG would agree this is fair GIVE ME MY BAT AND BALL I;M GOING HOME

      BrownlowBoy · 09/01/2019 at 12:01

      Well considering Watson wanted to go off the ground I'm not sure we can complain! The umpire was happy to stay out there but Watto was already walking off. It isn't really fair but guess it's the same as if a player gets injured in footy to some degree. Not fair if a player gets knocked out with a sling tackle at the first centre bounce and scores nothing. Guess SC expect you to sub them onto bench prior to the game if you're worried about being rained out.

      That's why I waited until last minute to bring in McCullum and captain Lynn, as the Heat were batting first, I knew they would score all their points would be scored before the rain got there

        neil demons delight · 09/01/2019 at 13:13

        Point taken and that shows wisdom to wait for the call ,however Selwood would have the opportunity to avoid the tackle Patto Rahman and co. didn't . As you say it isn't fair BB

          BrownlowBoy · 09/01/2019 at 13:43

          I just don't see a way of avoiding it. Like say Patto didn't get a bowl at all, and he got given his average as his score for the round, would that be fair? He may average 10 for the round but could of taken 5 wickets and scored 100+, or he could average 60 and get given his average, but if the game were to be played he could get carted and take no wickets and go for 40 runs.

          Just don't see how it could work personally, it's not fair but then again it's not fair for everyone – which I guess makes it fair?

            neil demons delight · 11/01/2019 at 04:30

            wow amazing score well done B B

              BrownlowBoy · 11/01/2019 at 09:42

              Thanks NDD!

              Ranked 215 for the round, and 1100 overall which I'm chuffed with.

    Russty_ · 11/01/2019 at 00:34

    Great score this week Tom, you smashed it out of the park!..turned out to be a good strategy loading up.

    Shinwari was a real bonus for you.

      BrownlowBoy · 12/01/2019 at 09:34

      G'day Rusty,

      Yes Shinwari was huge!

      As were the bash brothers and baby bash!

      Biggest let downs were Curran and Buttler but can't complain.

Russty_ · 09/01/2019 at 21:42

Can't wait to see Will Pucovski debut in the Srilankan Tests, hope he does well, the Aussies need to rebuild their batting lineup, if he gets some decent scores he could keep his spot.
Marnus looked allright too in the last Test before he got out…hope he stays in there.
Team should be bolstered when the cheaty brothers return but with the Marshes, Handscome and Finch dropped, we need some youth in the side.
At least with Marnus, Harris, Pucovski and Renshaw in there, there might be some hope for the future..bowling overhaul next!
Disappointing Australian selectors chose the same bowling lineup as the Indian series, I reckon some new blokes deserve a chance.
I'd like to see what Pukovski could do in the Ashes Tour.

    neil demons delight · 10/01/2019 at 07:05

    Great to see some youth in there Russty just like when Punter started. Tremain could have been blooded and rest Starc. The new guy who bowls a bit of leg is worth keeping also Love watching the sei lankins my best mates are sri lankins and wonderful happy people who love their cricket. It takes them a while to get to know aussie ways though and all of my friends now follow one AFL team — Collingwood —Where did I go wrong NDD

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 10/01/2019 at 22:27

Geez just eeked out a W there NDD.
Good contest.
Harper and Baz made it close!

    TOPHAWK1 · 11/01/2019 at 18:18

    Good win Trigga!! Neil too good for me the week before. Getting decent scores, but every week I cop a high scoring player. Zodiarc this week. Might have a chance!! 🙂

BrownlowBoy · 11/01/2019 at 08:58

1049 for me last round.

Not sure whether to load up on Strikers, or prepare for Darcy Short and Matt Wade next week, with the Canes not having a bye after this round, they will stay in my team the whole tournament.

BrownlowBoy · 11/01/2019 at 11:13

Tommy Mitchell gone to hospital with what is thought to be a broken leg!

    BrownlowBoy · 11/01/2019 at 12:28

    Update gone for the season. Won't see him until 2020

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 11/01/2019 at 19:41

      Shocking news that.

      Always like to watch the best strutt their stuff.

      Thoughts r with you Titch.

      Double break. Tough road back.

      Best of luck …

        Russty_ · 11/01/2019 at 20:32

        What a bummer, not getting to see the champ play this year, hope he recovers 100%, but it'll take a lot of time and effort.

neil demons delight · 11/01/2019 at 15:47

Terrible luck

WTFoxtrot_58 · 11/01/2019 at 18:11

Does anyone know why Kane Richardson didn't play second rebels game last round? ?

    BrownlowBoy · 12/01/2019 at 09:32

    Injury

Russty_ · 11/01/2019 at 20:30

Bravo had a good spell…lol
If you had him you lost 2 points in the Striker's innings.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 11/01/2019 at 21:23

    Gulbis be a nice fill in why the stars are away a to odi

    Might have a look next round 😉

      Russty_ · 11/01/2019 at 21:28

      Hey Trigga, yeah I almost did, but then looked at his history..probably should've though.

      BrownlowBoy · 12/01/2019 at 09:32

      It's a trap TH don't pick Gulbis please.

neil demons delight · 12/01/2019 at 18:27

Tough decision whether to Sacrifice BOYCE and S'OK for LYNN and Henriques Lynn has to be in your team Henri is decent cover ,whereas S'OK is also a must have and Boyce a bit better than Henri. Playing BB who has Lynn but Boyce has a double coming up Toss of the coin NDD

    Russty_ · 13/01/2019 at 23:20

    Boyce redeemed himself a bit with the bat for you tonight Neil..hope SOK does well for you…Lynn would've been handy though.

      neil demons delight · 14/01/2019 at 00:20

      just keep getting it wrong but the plan was for Boyces double coming up ONLY a game

dontblushbaby · 12/01/2019 at 19:16

J.Pattinson ruled out for the rest of the BBL with another injury, he can't take a trick poor Patto

    neil demons delight · 12/01/2019 at 19:49

    Rotten luck for him

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 12/01/2019 at 23:06

    bowled really well the other day until it was washed out.

    just not a body built for the rigours of fast bowling.

    looked like he did something in the last game will need to trade away again.

    Russty_ · 13/01/2019 at 23:16

    Could've used those extra points about now, might be getting offloaded to Gulbis next round.

BrownlowBoy · 13/01/2019 at 15:11

Imagine if Australia had a spinner like Khan… my god he's a genius

    Russty_ · 13/01/2019 at 15:27

    Hey BB, I reckon Cricket Australia should pay for his whole family to immigrate out here to become a citizen and play for us..apparently he has 7 brothers who all bowl legspin too!

AuroraBorealis?! · 13/01/2019 at 16:06

How long is Alex Carey out for international duty? Is it worth trading him?

    Russty_ · 13/01/2019 at 16:17

    Hi AB, ODI's this Tues and then Friday, then Strikers have a bye so the next Strikers game isn't until the 21st.

      AuroraBorealis?! · 13/01/2019 at 20:33

    Hahah, he's a stud Trig!…glad I kept him in and on the field too..he's a jet.

    Aaah he's out!…what a bummer, I needed another 30 points from him..great knock though.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 13/01/2019 at 21:35

Look out.

Russty_ · 13/01/2019 at 23:13

Come on Tommy Curran and Moises, need some wickets from you blokes tonight!…Need 100 points or so out of both of you in the 2nd innings…hope you read this in the break….LOL

neil demons delight · 14/01/2019 at 00:00

Don't mind losing to a few champs like Trigg and BROWNLOW BOY but get really peed off with people like Toppas opponent who has really just chucked it in mid season As Trigg said when he filled the second last spot ' you know me I always have a go'. .Pity others can't take a leaf out of his book or leave the spot to someone who will try to the death/ Congrats go to my opponent BB JESUS GILCHRIST beat me badly REALLY knows his cricket NDD

    Russty_ · 14/01/2019 at 00:07

    Know what you mean Neil, in my 2 leagues there is nuggety chargers and fighting bundogs who have given up and couldn't give a rat's ass…shame cause someone who wanted to be there could've been there.
    Also, it ruins the League results for everyone when one person couldn't give a shit.

      neil demons delight · 14/01/2019 at 00:18

      It gets worse as JLT and preseason takes over. Last year was GATOR and my first crack at BBL like you this year and we were crap unlike you .You are doing well, but we tried to the end even last year, tradeless and going backwards we kept going Why even put your name down.

        Russty_ · 14/01/2019 at 00:25

        Only answer I Can give to that question is Neil…no one knows what anyone else is going through in their life…and why they do what they do…maybe in future, if possible only invite trusted finishers of the game.

        Meant to say Nuggety Chuckers before too…given up.

    Russty_ · 14/01/2019 at 00:17

    Did allright this week Neil, one and one…not bad, you're pretty good at this thing.

      neil demons delight · 14/01/2019 at 00:38

      I was comprehensively beaten by BB this week but i'll be back . Should have traded SOK to Lynn earlier today when I could have Thems the breaks

    BrownlowBoy · 14/01/2019 at 09:09

    Think I'm just getting lucky Neil to be honest.

    I watch a few matches here and there, look at breakevens and read some stuff but nothing major.

      neil demons delight · 14/01/2019 at 11:15

      I think you are selling yourself short BB. Some of your moves were brilliant and after last week .Thank god I don't play you again only in finals if I make it. Great moves by BB 1. bringing in a bowler NESER
      2 Head .how you did that at 200k who knows
      3 Keeping RAHMAN when you had to dump a few Heat boys after having loads last week. Was my first to go
      4 Loading up on HEAT/GADES last week and cracking a beauty only bettered by this extroadinary effort this week.
      Enjoy the tributes BB you deserve it cheers NDD

        BrownlowBoy · 14/01/2019 at 14:44

        I just try and plan ahead!

        This week I'm thinking of trading one of my best players in Tommy Curran.

        Has a monster break even (157) and his price tag allows me to grab all 3 of Wade, Short and Archer.

        Out: Head, Neser, Curran.
        In: Short, Wade, Archer

        I was originally trying to trade Head, Neser and Ingram but couldn't afford those big 3 above, and was fiddling with Short, McDermott and Archer or Short, Wade and Bailey so I'm a little unsure if trading Curran will be worth it – but he is going to lose cash so it kinda makes sense to trade him, considering Ingram and Neser both have low break evens.

        I managed to get Head in, after giving Nabi the flick. Had Nabi for his double and even that was almost unbearable, he doesn't seem to be in any form.

        I will say getting McCullum so cheaply before his double has been brilliant, very chuffed with that one.

        Next week's problem is getting rid of Patto – probably going to Gurney from the Renegades as they have another double!

          BrownlowBoy · 14/01/2019 at 15:09

          Actually scratch that.

          Out: Head, Curran, Patto
          In: Wade, Short, Archer

          Decided to keep Neser as he has another double coming up.

          Next week: Henriques to Gurney. Sixers don't have any doubles so I'm cutting Curran and Henriques from my team.

            neil demons delight · 14/01/2019 at 16:39

            Sounds a silly question BB but where do you find all that info breakevens etc. Sydney sixers are a liability at present and I looked at curran also .but settled on SOK. WEATHER INGRAM and SOK TO lynn botha wade good luck bud Has SOK a big breakeven?

            TRIGGA_HAPPY · 14/01/2019 at 18:38

            Smashing it BB.

            keep it up. 😎

      Russty_ · 14/01/2019 at 18:11

      Don't sell yourself short mate, you're understanding the formula and trading accordingly…I'm learning the ropes this year, only just found out trades are unlimited in the finals lol,.
      What I've learnt so far is you can't remain attached to anyone, when they have to go, they have to go to make sure you get the win that week.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 14/01/2019 at 00:15

Looks like Ash may turn the match!

Impressive 50.

There's the ton in SC. 😁

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 14/01/2019 at 15:03

Question without notice.

What do we think the chances r that Turner gets called up for 2nd or 3rd ODI?

Currently have the legend in my team and want to make some changes to bring in canes tonight but not sure if should use 3 trades leaving me short if turner gets a call up.

With khan on the pine and green on the pine will mean if turner leaves will have to take greens score (if Plays?)

Bit of a biatch scorcers dont play till Friday.🙄

Little help??

Bloody Trav going cheaply in his second dig has left me $4k shy of a straight swap for short.

    BrownlowBoy · 14/01/2019 at 16:02

    No idea sorry TH!

    You wouldn't think they would change a winning formula?

    neil demons delight · 14/01/2019 at 16:31

    THAT'S what makes it hard but could happen anytime good luck I would look at my leagues and opponents then make a call but rank is different happy days mate

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 14/01/2019 at 18:14

      Kept one up my sleeve last round as thought patto may miss (didnt think it would be rest of bbl but) so will only bring in 2 gaders and leave one for turner just in case.

      Never going rank NDD too much luck in this caper

    Russty_ · 14/01/2019 at 18:13

    Hi Trig, I just reckon do what ya gotta do to win this week, you can always trade him back in, I'm sure many blokes have traded the same bloke out and back in a few times in past seasons.

gator59 · 14/01/2019 at 16:36

Renegades are the BBL equal to the Saints in the afl… Fast becoming to having none of them in your side even if they have a double header.. Only exception is maybe Christian and even he's been doing SFA of late

    neil demons delight · 14/01/2019 at 17:00

    one of my mates joked about KHAN being an AFL PLAYER maybe the saints?

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 14/01/2019 at 18:21

    Yep said that a couple of weeks back.
    Double games dont necessarily mean big scores esp rooks.

    Gurney went ok.
    Probably get a gig next round.

hedski · 14/01/2019 at 21:01

Hey fellas, been a bit busy to comment much lately, on holidays now, sweet.
How bloody good is D'arcy???
Up against Gator and BB this week, need a win after going down to NDD, Trigga and DBBaby last round.
Brought in Wade, Faulkner and Joffra for their doubles so hopefully they get a few wickets tonight.
9 days to go til SC opens, woo hoo. 👍

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 14/01/2019 at 21:42

    Darcy born to play this game.

    Enjoy the break hedski.
    Lining up a coupla frothies?

      hedski · 14/01/2019 at 21:56

      Yeah mate, plowing into a couple of bday brews as we speak.

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 14/01/2019 at 22:03

        HAPPY birthday mate 🎂🍻 from HAPPY.

    neil demons delight · 14/01/2019 at 21:55

    Happy New Year in the year of the demon Hedski. No one has mentioned Kelly as yet What do you think Hedski Pricey but a talent no doubt NDD

      hedski · 15/01/2019 at 09:59

      Gday Neil, I take it you mean Josh at GWS?
      He came into my team when Titch went down, current mids are Macrae, Kelly, Cripps, Clarry and Miles.

        neil demons delight · 15/01/2019 at 12:36

        Actually not KEELY the CAT. I am disregarding his price and treating him as a premo.i had him all last year and no regrets ,This kid can play but is he as good as Kelly THEGIANT I think he is close NDD

          hedski · 15/01/2019 at 13:05

          Ah yes Timmy, on the radar but not sure if I'll start him, I think you will need Danger and Menagola in your fwds at some stage this year, 3 cats might be pushing it but could happen after the byes.

    Russty_ · 15/01/2019 at 18:07

    Hey hedski good to see you mate, hope you had a good birthday and happy new year too 🙂
    9 days!..woohoo can't wait, gotta remember too, once it opens team picker disappears..I remember that happening last year, this year I'm taking pics of my team lol

      hedski · 16/01/2019 at 11:07

      Cheers Russty 👍

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 14/01/2019 at 21:30

Short heading for the double ton.

Hope you had the C around his neck 😏

    dontblushbaby · 14/01/2019 at 22:11

    Yep, like most , however when looking at my leagues some haven't ?

      Russty_ · 15/01/2019 at 17:50

      Yep…I'm dumb..lol, thought I'd go against the pack this week, that went well! haha

        WTFoxtrot_58 · 15/01/2019 at 18:19

        If Gotch had held onto that chance you'd be laughing Russty. Short is a unit though.
        I had a sneaky in Meredith that paid a great dividend. Hope he repeats it in their second game. Slowly coming to grips with this format and it really is hit or miss..

          Russty_ · 15/01/2019 at 18:27

          Thanks wtf was thinking the same thing, keeper needed to be a bit taller haha, I think i chose the worst Canes player to put the C on too…Faulkner, didn't bat, no wickets…bad moustache

        neil demons delight · 15/01/2019 at 19:49

        Just a bit unlucky mate A few games back Short got bowled by a howler early, A bowler can get belted early by McCullum /Lynn and be 0 for 30 then come back at the death and get 3 wickets It's luck NDD

neil demons delight · 15/01/2019 at 19:43

Those like Russty, sorry mate, who are crying out for test changes and putting LYNN and SHORT forward ,are sadly IMO, mistaken. These guys barely make their state teams (Short recently dropped from WA) and not representing in ODI'S. As long as you have good hand to eye co- ordination and a good slog ,then 20/20 is not a problem , Different story with KHAN though and maybe RAHMAN.. That's why the Marsh bros are always in front of SHORT and LYNN and should be. ALAN BORDER and IAN CHAPPELL would have been stars at this game. They both played rep. baseball and their co-ordination tops. As much as we need top order batsmen Short and Lynn are not the answer Sorry fellas only my opinion NDD

    Russty_ · 15/01/2019 at 22:47

    Hey bud I was more talking about Short getting a go in the ODI squad rather than the test team, (Over Finch maybe)?.. never mentioned Lynn…Finch is horribly out of form…not sure why he's Captain.
    I do think the bowling needs a bit of a shake up in the test squad though, why not give Stark a rest?… who has been averaging crap and bowling quite loose and give Meredith a run, doesn't seem to bowl as much leg side and short crap as Stark does..and Khan would be brilliant in there too, a leggy and an offy would be good stuff.
    C.A just needs to fork out the cash for his 28 family members to immigrate out here lol

neil demons delight · 16/01/2019 at 07:49

Yeah Finchy needs to regain that form .Meredith has got to be considered surely.I was more thinking odi.s rather than tests when considering short and lynn. I would still have a Maxwell in front of them for the world cup . but it's only an opinion cheers mate

Russty_ · 17/01/2019 at 22:29

What the hell's going on with the scores from tonight's match?…says all my players didn't play!…lol

    neil demons delight · 17/01/2019 at 22:36

    Game called off Russty lights blown like the st Kilda game long ago remember

      Russty_ · 17/01/2019 at 22:54

      Ok cheers mate, so we don't get any scores from tonight?…I thought last time the game got called we still got the scores already scored?…oh well.

        JEL · 18/01/2019 at 01:55

        Both teams need to bat at least 5 overs.
        Last time twhen it was rained out, both passed the minimum overs so they could use the DLS to work out a winner.
        This time the Heat only batted for 3 overs, so game was abandoned.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 17/01/2019 at 22:50

    be a crime if u were going for overall and had a team full of thunder and heat!

    Unless they play again be like having 3 teams with a bye

    Was close to bringing in baz too , phew.

    Sometimes the sun shines …..

      Russty_ · 17/01/2019 at 22:55

      Hahah yeah Trig, kinda glad I didn't bring him in either…although ,my score would've sucked anyway this week.

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 17/01/2019 at 22:58

        be spewing if u had Watto!

          Russty_ · 17/01/2019 at 23:10

          Yeah for sure right!?

      neil demons delight · 17/01/2019 at 23:03

      Bet it happens. Should play it again like the StKilda -Essendon game Still reckon Essendon cheated in the replay next night. They made changes including bringing Hird in. .Watto wanted to continue this time bowling spin only. There is something no quite right about cricket fantasy, doesn't really work. People with Watson should feel hard done by,whereas the last one the batting first innings counted. Strange

neil demons delight · 17/01/2019 at 22:39

Lucky for those with no thunder or heat players .Wouldn't be many though. game of luck

    Russty_ · 17/01/2019 at 22:56

    What a joke with those lights…they obviously don't have backup measures in place.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 17/01/2019 at 22:57

    3 for me

    a couple of poor souls had lynn as C in leagues.

    though one had lynn as C and short as VC so swings and roundabouts.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 18/01/2019 at 10:18

    ol mate= Mark Waugh! with Lynn as C be spewing but it is actually right as he went out b4 the lights fiasco

BrownlowBoy · 18/01/2019 at 09:59

I had 5 Heat/Thunder players last night… safe to say I wasn't a happy camper. No bench cover due to it being filled with Strikers.

Lynn, McCullum, Bryant, Mujeeb, Devcich.

I looked this morning and some scores seem to have been allocated whilst others received a DNP (Did Not Play) next to their name… strange.

Only bad thing about the scores being allocated is the impact on every player's breakeven. Low scores = lots of cash lost

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 18/01/2019 at 10:01

Looks like u get the score up till when the lights went out

    BrownlowBoy · 18/01/2019 at 10:08

    That kinda helps but also doesn't help me.

    I get more points instead of only having 6 scoring players but will impact breakevens.

Russty_ · 18/01/2019 at 20:32

Watching the one dayer…sheesh how did Maxwell drop Dhoni?…what a sitter,and on a duck FFS!… and then he gets a clear inside edge caught and not out…this review shit should be abolished I reckon, limited reviews by the teams I mean, the Umpire should be able to review whenever they're not sure, stuff the team reviews.
If it's shown to be clearly out on TV as it was with Dhoni's edge then it should be given out!..Aussies appealed but the Umpire wasn't interested, another human error…possibly altering a whole series' result….and now India will win the series…done!

neil demons delight · 18/01/2019 at 22:09

Is the ODI on the way out Russty. No. 1 is always test but T 20 appears to have taken over one dayers .I find the middle bit boring. .Imagine if THE BIG BASH brought in COLLINGWOOD . Hate to say it but all facets of the game would be better. Would they be the Collingwood Champs or Chumps

    Russty_ · 18/01/2019 at 22:16

    Hey Neil yeah could be mate, what an injustice that last game was, Dhoni should've been out, not winning the series for India, anyways, I reckon a T-30 format could replace one dayers quite easily without too much loss of revenue, one dayers take too long and can be very boring when it's a one sided result.

      neil demons delight · 18/01/2019 at 23:19

      remember the original pom's one It was 40 overs but agree 30 overs is even better

Russty_ · 19/01/2019 at 22:16

Hey guys, well done if you brought Richo and or Stoinis in this week, huge games for both of them, I noticed quite a few guys brought in extra Gades players who didn't do so well, me being one of them…Guerney..bit of a spud tonight lol, think I still have a lot to learn about BBL Fantasy.

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 19/01/2019 at 22:54

    Went a week early on stonis as still using my 123 method.

    HAPPY with that one. 😁

      neil demons delight · 19/01/2019 at 23:42

      Hope you do ROB by 100 Trigg Puts me on top also playing Russty about even eh RUST. Not a whole lot of time to make changes and I missed my last by 10 secs. Wanted cooper for AVO rust See how I would have gone in the 2nd inn. Settled on Whiteman for next week good luck boys Been looking at your 123 method Trigg sort of a poor mans Shake and Fake a very poor man —me . Wonder where Shake is — Russty make sure you don't miss Trigg.s AFL league, you only just missed out last year. The league isn't the elite Shake's CAZALY league is that but the league is full of the right guys -triers and forum guys who comment , get in both mate and Agraders Cheers boys and go TRIGG YOU CAN DO IT NDD

        TRIGGA_HAPPY · 20/01/2019 at 11:44

        Cheers mate

        123 works well most weeks.

        Tossed up betweeen richo. Nabi or.Christiansen as my gade.

        Went christo as bats and bowls. Been in pretty good form.

        Hopefully punches out a big one 2nd game. 🤞
        Like faulkner did 2nd game.

        Bit of fun over summer

          neil demons delight · 20/01/2019 at 14:47

          You've always liked Christiansen but don't think he bats well enough or bowls good but plays ok footy.Confuses us but summer fun yes

    BrownlowBoy · 20/01/2019 at 18:55

    I could of gone Richo and had 4 Gades this week (already have Christian, Harper and brought in Gurney for cash reasons) but brought in Stoinis instead. Can't complain, had a -99 breakeven or something ridiculous so he's gonna make roughly 85k this week!

    Handscomb was my other in, didn't pay off but again low break even and preparing for next round. Will allow me to bring in 3 Scorchers next week and have 5 players for the double game round nest week.

    C on Christian isn't looking too great at the moment but oh well better than my other renegades in Harper and Gurney.

      Russty_ · 20/01/2019 at 19:04

      Decent planning BB…yeah bummer about Christian was over 100 points with his E.R rate bonus until he bowled his last 2 overs and got smooshed..looks like I've missed the boat on Getting Stoinis back in then..bloody cricket.

        BrownlowBoy · 21/01/2019 at 08:52

        Yeah I didn't watch the game, checked scores and was happy with him, checked back later and he had dropped significantly which was a let down.

        You may have to trade Short to Stoinis next week, and the week after trade Stoinis back to Short as Stoinis will have the bye and Short the double game

          Russty_ · 21/01/2019 at 14:59

          Cheers mate I might do that…knowing my luck though short will get 180 again…lol

            BrownlowBoy · 22/01/2019 at 09:02

            Otherwise Khan Rusty.
            After last night, Khan will likely drop under 200k, and should have another drop if you choose to trade him to Stoinis. Then the week after you may be able to bring in Khan cheaply! You would have to check breakevens though.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 21/01/2019 at 22:09

How awesome was that!!!

Best batting combo on the planet at the mo.

Dont think i saw a false shot between them.

Saw off khan without casuality then picked em off.

Brilliant batting.

Will take some catching. Think they may have one mitt on the 🏆 already

neil demons delight · 21/01/2019 at 22:26

Great effort. Wade must be stiff not to be in test team.great effort by you too Trigg

    Russty_ · 23/01/2019 at 20:01

    Hi Neil, I was disappointed not to see Pucovski given a go against Srilanka, they've opted for Joe Burns instead, If Pucovski had done well in those two tests, he could've been a chance for the Ashes.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/01/2019 at 09:37

just a reminder for those of us still playing along at home….

the first game of round 10 kicks off at 2.45pm today.!!!

then there is another game tonight.

just a heads up – not much turnaround.,

    neil demons delight · 23/01/2019 at 12:09

    thx mate appreciated Thought you had him for a moment

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/01/2019 at 12:55

      yeah richo as C the difference

      that and lynn and khan making 18 between them

      thems the breaks

    hedski · 23/01/2019 at 17:53

    Traded Khan to Stoinis and made him captain with about 20 seconds to spare this arvo, happy days.

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/01/2019 at 17:55

      Very happy days

      He gun. 😁

      Bravo! Bravo.

      Russty_ · 23/01/2019 at 19:59

      Well done mate just got in there in time!…I brought Stoinis in this week too but at the expense of Darcy..reckon you'll still kick my butt though.

    JEL · 23/01/2019 at 20:55

    Noooooo, Shuffled the team at the last minute to get Stoinis in and to make him C, but ran out of time to swap him on field.
    So not only don't I have the C on him, I've got him sitting as a sub.

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/01/2019 at 21:48

      As they say on SPEED

      Oh darn or something along those lines

      Might have to trade in a non player on field as his score will be worth getting this round.

        JEL · 23/01/2019 at 23:13

        Need to have 2 non players, one on field, and the other as sub to make sure his score gets counted.
        Moot point as I had to use 3 trades to make it happen, so none left this round.

        I think I said Oh darn a number of times.( or something similar)

          Russty_ · 24/01/2019 at 00:06

          Bad luck Jels, sometimes life gets in the way mate, I actually thought you might've given up on your team when I saw Stoinis on your bench..it's a bit of a cunnova game really lol

Russty_ · 23/01/2019 at 21:58

Hooray!….I had Phillipe on the bench and Gulbis on the field…hooray!!!!

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 23/01/2019 at 22:18

    Dont think too many would have him on the field.

    Was impressive tonight with a bit of luck.

    Alas he also warmed the bench for me

    But did get the moses – bravo trade spot on

      Russty_ · 24/01/2019 at 00:09

      True mate, I think this was his "breakout game" !…looked very good with some confidence thrown in.

    neil demons delight · 23/01/2019 at 22:28

    tossing between philipe and harper went wrong way again

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 24/01/2019 at 23:07

Thank you Harper for your services.

You have been great and gone from rookie priced to over $100k.

But when you are faced with a gift of a straight swap infact you got $2k change for Shaun Marsh you gotta take it

Gotta luv that.

    Russty_ · 25/01/2019 at 21:09

    Well done mate, I chose his 50 grand more expensive spud brother…I'm good at this game!…yeah

      neil demons delight · 25/01/2019 at 21:30

      me too rusty and whiteman both injured bring on the footy didn't realise Marsh was available checked the site for info ,trigg always posts close to the start but forgot about the next page of posts and missed his marsh post. always happens

        Russty_ · 25/01/2019 at 21:39

        What kinda sours me on the BBL is Neil, is that you can't build a good team and keep it, you always have to change it just to keep up with the Jones's and win that week, doing this has made my team suffer losses I normally wouldn't have.
        It's a non stop trade fest to get as many bodies on the park for the double game….not as enjoyable as supercoach afl.
        Not sure if I'll play again…will have to think about it.

          TRIGGA_HAPPY · 26/01/2019 at 08:09

          Yeah alot diff to afl.
          Different mindset.

          Hoping to crack the 1000.mark this round.

          Next round there is a chance i may have 11 doubles depending on trades!

          Just gotta decide if i bench Stonis but if trade 11 * 2.

            neil demons delight · 26/01/2019 at 12:54

            We all try that Trigg and it doesn't always come off Like having Bailey on the double and doesn't bat. The leaders will be weighing up their 11 choices vs players like Sams SOK Richo and Watto. TOUGH game that doesn't reward effort and research unlike A F L but fills the void as long as we keep going .Last year remember we both won our G F in walkovers not good — I would have much preferred to play you in the no 1 and have a contest than win the magoos in a walkover see you in the Happy Place NDD not sure of your last line Please explain?

              TRIGGA_HAPPY · 27/01/2019 at 09:51

              If I bench Stonis next round will have 10 with the double game.
              Trade Stonis as the stars have the bye will be 11 players so the whole team who plays twice.

                neil demons delight · 27/01/2019 at 11:22

                hard to get back and one less star I am trying to keep him but it does give you the better options. WADE instead of Bailey for instance

Russty_ · 25/01/2019 at 21:35

Just finished watching the Test, shame Paine didn't open the bowling with Cummins and Richardson, Stark just bowls loose crap a lot of the time, Paddy Cummins gets a wicket with a pearler on his last ball and the last ball of the day…brilliant!…we could've had 3 for if Paine didn't insist on opening with Stark, Paine needs to go I think, got a golden today, not pulling his weight and his Captaincy decisions aren't too flash either.

Russty_ · 26/01/2019 at 18:02

You can tell that this Srilankan Test "series"…( 2 games) is just a warmup for the Aussie squad to flog an International team and gain a bit of confidence before they face a formidable opponent in England with the Ashes.
Glad they found out that the best opening bowling attack is Cummins and Richardson, not Stark or Hazelwood, those 2 need to be dropped..even if Hazelwood wasn't injured.
The best thing about any test team is their unpredictability, and Stark and Hazelwood ain't that!…look what Bumrah did to us this year…a tearaway unpredictable fast bowler tore our batting attack apart.
We need to model our test team on India…they know what's going on.

    Gav · 26/01/2019 at 22:54

    disagree, best thing about any test team is being predictably disciplined. think glenn mcgrath or purjara. you know exactly what they are going to do but because they do it well each time they are made for test cricket. if you want to be Mr Unpredictable it's T20 or 50/50 for you.

    bumrah knows that by bowling his slower ball yorker two times a test match. that's the max you can do.

neil demons delight · 26/01/2019 at 18:12

don't forget the batting though. One sparrow doesn't make a spring

hedski · 27/01/2019 at 21:35

Holy crap BBoy, you're up for a massive score this week!

neil demons delight · 28/01/2019 at 06:54

            Who would you put on field this round out of Gurney (Ave 40-scored 15 last round) or Gilkes (played 1 game for 74)?
            Leaning to Gilkes because he bats and keeps.

WTFoxtrot_58 · 28/01/2019 at 22:04

Melbourne Renegades or the Rusty Gates??

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 29/01/2019 at 11:22

Well that was a long points fest.

You know there r some big scores out there when you score just short of 1400 and still get beaten in hawks league!

Needed phillipes 158 sitting on the pine. 🙄

Happy to finally break through the 1k barrier. 😄

Earlish game today. Kicks off at 4.
3 teams on the double.
Will probably trade Stonis as may be swapping colours for whites.

    hedski · 29/01/2019 at 14:59

    I traded him out with the view to get him back next round, 8 double game players for me this week.

neil demons delight · 29/01/2019 at 15:48

Reverse changes not working and cant change Meridith to archer Lots of funny things happen in this game still fun

    hedski · 29/01/2019 at 15:50

    That sucks still 10 mins till kickoff, should work.

      neil demons delight · 29/01/2019 at 15:56

      doesn't Turners on

        neil demons delight · 29/01/2019 at 16:02

        Playing Trigg 1 vs 2 could be the difference Been trying for 20 mins thems the breaks but things like that happen a lot would be mighty p…sed off if you were in the running

      neil demons delight · 29/01/2019 at 16:26

      sucks even worse when archer nabs 2 in his first over I hate this game

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 29/01/2019 at 20:22

What happened to Meredith?

Just logged on and a donut.

Did they drop him?
Surely not.

As for carey that has to be a record for run outs in bbl history surely.

Sheesh.

    hedski · 29/01/2019 at 20:28

    Meredith is crook Trig, Carey can't run for shit (just got him in), poor Neil tried to reverse trades and get Archer in for Meredith before the game and it wouldn't let him.

      neil demons delight · 29/01/2019 at 20:43

      I am playing you too hedski but I suppose its only fair that I couldn't reverse now that trigg had him also. hope archer does nothing. Got into draft

        hedski · 30/01/2019 at 20:03

        Looks like I stuffed up too Neil, forgot to check if Gilkes was playing (he's not), I could have put Sangha on field, now I'll get Edwards 20 if Sangha beats it.

          neil demons delight · 30/01/2019 at 20:21

          Happens loads. I have lost close to 1000 points Time limits between games is deadly. Not a game for rank only leagues. ,but it would be good if I could beat your good self and Trigg You both put in and luck beats you cheers mate NDD

            TRIGGA_HAPPY · 30/01/2019 at 20:53

            100%
            Just here to take on the lads.

            Time to light up the night gurns

          TRIGGA_HAPPY · 30/01/2019 at 20:51

          5% chance sanga scores more 😝

            hedski · 30/01/2019 at 22:30

            I should have just played Gurney instead of getting fancy!
            Dropped 64 points…ha.

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 29/01/2019 at 20:47

      Bugger working no time to check teams
      Over to u gurns

      Geez heat were cold – crap scores

      Adv NDD

neil demons delight · 02/02/2019 at 08:34

Trigg has a big game coming up in ORIGIN/Needs to beat Warney to progress to 4. Hedski that non reverse with Meridith cost me 134 points but had no effect on leagues still lost either way Congrats to both you and Trigg Hopefully we have another date before the real stuff Cheers boys NDD

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 04/02/2019 at 10:03

    Gonna be close mate.
    Bravo did me no favours through stoked with my Marsh to Maxwell trade.

      neil demons delight · 04/02/2019 at 15:31

      Went with Maxwell and Bravo myself.instead of Stoinis and O'Connell Get Stoinis thisweek NDD

neil demons delight · 05/02/2019 at 08:37

Forgot to captain Hardie and missed on Maxwell's ton that
s 1200 avoidable points errors You have to be on the ball this game

TOPHAWK1 · 07/02/2019 at 21:23

Riley Meredith is bowling some serious dross!!! WOW. 3 free hits, and 2 wides that ended up in boundaries. A lazy 23 off that over. Hehehehehe

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/02/2019 at 22:17

    As the cameraman says

    Bowling rileeeyyyy

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/02/2019 at 22:40

    Jump in the happy place league hawk

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 07/02/2019 at 22:16

Ok so what happened to rahmen and faulkner?

Donuts for both.
This has been one loooong round.
Why was it dragged out so much? Not even any double up this rounds.

    neil demons delight · 08/02/2019 at 07:33

    happens too often Trigg.The only break I got was to get Turners score.. Hedski is doing well could win it

      TRIGGA_HAPPY · 08/02/2019 at 10:29

      At least I knocked off Warnie. 😉

      Which was as good thing considering I played him in 3 out of 5 leagues.

neil demons delight · 08/02/2019 at 12:25

Good to see regulars HEDSKI TRIGG TOM join myself for RUSSTYS inaugural league BASHARAMA Good luck fellas NDD

    Russty_ · 08/02/2019 at 21:17

    Well done lads, should be a great Finals series for you blokes, down the ole ladder for me my first season but I learned how it all works now and will come back stronger next season, cheers .

      neil demons delight · 09/02/2019 at 07:36

      you did well Russty Gator and myself were way below you in our first year. It's hard to maintain interest when footy starts and just so much unavoidable bad luck can occur. Just a fill in fun game against mates for me. Footy's here woohoo go dees and good luck to your Saints Russty NDD

        Russty_ · 09/02/2019 at 19:22

        Cheers mate, didn't help that I got back from my trip yesterday 10 minutes before the game and had to make some flash trades lol, didn't realise Nesser Ingram and Faulkner weren't playing either haha, it might still work out..playing Gator this week.
        Good luck to your mighty Dees Neil, my second team after the spuds I barrack for.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 08/02/2019 at 23:25

In thought wadeshort were impressive
But that was a master class.
Cleanest ball striking ever.

neil demons delight · 08/02/2019 at 23:30

WOW That was some batting by the heat

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 09/02/2019 at 23:15

Gotta luv a sneaky pod

Luv ya work patty

    neil demons delight · 09/02/2019 at 23:39

    great move Trigg but I feel Warnie might bring you down in Origin best of luck though

hedski · 10/02/2019 at 15:30

Well bringing Dunk in a week before his double was the worst trade I've made this season.
What a nuffy.

neil demons delight · 10/02/2019 at 17:59

Trigg very stiff in ORIGIN tophawk's 4 point loss to Kings was enough but what a year for you mate , as you said to Tophawk at the start, 'you know me never give up' and that's true even if it's the inferior code of fantasy.Still could meet you in RUSSTYS league where Tom and Hedski are our opponents and one other league so good luck , no chrissy card for TOPHAWK cheers NDD one lousy four would have done it — to the shed

    TRIGGA_HAPPY · 10/02/2019 at 21:34

    Yep thought the cummins pod was the winning move but turned maxys blinder off zampa was the difference as gave zampa 20 extra points. Good score but. Well played BB.

Russty_ · 14/02/2019 at 18:09

Hey Lads, good luck and all the best for the finals, may the best team win..wish I was there with you but didn't make the 8 in both my Leagues so I'll be an interested spectator . 🙂
Who's your pick for the Big Bash Title this year?

    hedski · 14/02/2019 at 19:32

    Hard to go past Hobart Russty but I'll be going for my Renegades, we're overdue.

      Russty_ · 14/02/2019 at 22:14

      Hobart's posted a very gettable target Hed so Stars could win this one if they keep it together.

hedski · 14/02/2019 at 19:57

Hurricanes in trouble

    Russty_ · 14/02/2019 at 22:14

    154 probably not enough I'd think.

TRIGGA_HAPPY · 15/02/2019 at 18:55

Big chance to be an all Melb granny.

    hedski · 15/02/2019 at 20:54

    Renegades have some batting to do Trigga, not sure how I'm still 50 points in front of you, pain in the neck that it doesn't show your opponent on game day.
    Trust Richardson not to get a wicket when I put him captain, should have taken Short's 57!!!

      Russty_ · 15/02/2019 at 22:42

      Yeah I was thinking that too Hed, sucks cause I can't see how you guys are going..guess I'll have to hear about it afterwards, looking like a close finish tonight!!

        hedski · 15/02/2019 at 23:05

        I think I won unless Trig had a vc and sub score to add.
        Go the Gades!!!!

    Russty_ · 15/02/2019 at 22:57

    All MELB it is!

    neil demons delight · 15/02/2019 at 23:08

    congrats to BB and hedski mighty year fellas well deserved. just didnt have enough coin for christian thats the difference. see you all next year NDD

      Russty_ · 15/02/2019 at 23:29

      Bad luck buddy…How did the scores go down?…can't see anything as a layman

        neil demons delight · 16/02/2019 at 10:16

        yeah thats the problem dumb BB got me in the last overs but i also couldnt see it.just short of Christian and had to take a billings instead haha

TOPHAWK1 · 15/02/2019 at 23:10

Hi Trigga!

Melbourne BBL Grand final dance locked. Love it. Should be a rippa!

The Tophawks get one back. BANG!

AuroraBorealis?! · 15/02/2019 at 23:13

All melbourne final this year! Any renegades fans here, i'm gonna try and get tickets to the game, anybody else going?

    Russty_ · 15/02/2019 at 23:30

    Wish I could AB but I'm 6000km away

      AuroraBorealis?! · 16/02/2019 at 21:24

      Where abouts are you Russty?

    hedski · 16/02/2019 at 08:28

    I'm on the Gades AB, can't make it to the game tho, will be cracking a few frothies and watching on the box.

      neil demons delight · 16/02/2019 at 10:13

      cheering you on too Hedski pity we cant see the run down completely spoils it good luck bud

        hedski · 16/02/2019 at 10:38

        Cheers NDD, I'm not sure who to put on field in the decider between White/Handscomb batting (leaning to Handscomb cos he's keeping.
        Also not sure who to leave out bowling out of Bravo/Lamichanne/Zampa.
        Tough choices…

      AuroraBorealis?! · 16/02/2019 at 21:23

      Sounds like a plan Hedski

JEL · 19/02/2019 at 20:55

Well thats BBL SC done and dusted for the year.
My first go at it and there are mixed feelings
Pros-
I like cricket and SC always adds extra interest.
Opportunity for lots of trading.
Cons-
Need to micro-manage your team, more so than the AFL version.
Harder to get info on who is in & out
