Panic Room | Round 15

Published by Fozdaddy on

My god it’s good to be past the byes. This doesn’t mean we’re not panicking though. Panicking is doubled in the run home, NO EXCUSES!

PANIC ROOM LIVE FROM 6PM AEST HERE

Newz you can Uze

Samson Ryan (RUC $117.3k) will make his debut on Friday night alongside a number of tall Tigers. Dion Prestia will also return, with Josh Caddy and Daniel Rioli dropped. Rowan Marshall, Daniel McKenzie, Tim Membrey and Seb Ross all return for the Saints, while Jack Bytel and Hunter Clark miss through injury, while Paul Hunter, Nick Coffield and Jack Lonie were dropped.

Taylor Adams makes his return to the Pies, as does Brodie Grundy. Mason Cox comes back after an extended absence, with Jordan De Goey, Max Lynch and Darcy Moore all out for a plethora of different reasons. Nat Fyfe, Griffin Logue, Sam Switkowski, Matt Taberner and Nathan Wilson return for Fremantle. Brett Bewley has been dropped, as has Reece Conca, Mitch Crowden, Taylin Duman and Joel Western.

Will Phillips will replace his rookie teammate Tom Powell in the North Melbourne lineup, while Ben Ainsworth, Josh Corbett and Jeremy Sharp come in for a true Saturday afternoon blockbuster in Tasmania. Can’t wait to see Gold Coast have zero fans there, and Tassie come out in droves. Chris Burgess, Lachie Weller and David Swallow will miss the clash.

Dylan Williams will make his debut for Port Adelaide, replacing Lachie Jones. Todd Marshall comes in for Peter Ladhams, while Robbie Gray will miss with his knee injury. Kaiden Brand and Errol Gulden return for Sydney, with Logan McDonald dropped and Sam Wicks suspended.

Alec Waterman returns for Ned Cahill in the Bombers clash with Melbourne. Jack Viney will also make his first appearance in a while, with Sam Weideman dropped. Still no love for Ben Brown 🙁

Jarman Impey has injured his ankle and will likely have surgery that will put him out for the year. Trade if you have him, either this week or next week. Denver Grainger-Barrass has been named to debut, and no other changes have been made just yet. James Worpel is likely to come into the side. No changes yet for GWS, but Shane Mumford, Brent Daniels and Tanner Bruhn have been named in the squad of 25.

Harry Edwards has been dropped, as has Luke Foley and Xavier O’Neill. WTF WCE??? Tim Kelly, Jeremy McGovern, Jack Petruccelle, Brad Shepperd, Nathan Vardy and Luke Shuey have been named in the squad. Riley Garcia may return for the Bulldogs, as he was named in the squad of 25. 

Zac Fisher, Luke Parks and friend of the pod Marc Pittonet have come out of the Blues lineup through injury and omission, with Matt Cottrell, Josh Honey, Marc Murphy, Sam Petrevski-Seton, Lachie Plowman and Lochie O’Brien named in the 25. Josh Worrell has been omitted for Adelaide, with Luke Brown, Jackson Hately, Elliott Himmelberg and Nick Murray in the squad.

When a price breaks, it don’t Breakeven

What am I s’posed to do, when Imma lose some cash from holding you:

  • 240 – Luke McDonald
  • 185 – Clayton Oliver
  • 159 – Cam Guthrie
  • 152 – Jack Macrae
  • 150 – Brodie Grundy

What am I s’posed to say, when you’re making coin by scoring okay:

  • -100 – Ned Reeves
  • -91 – Luke Edwards
  • -57 – Josh Treacy
  • -56 – Luke Foley
  • -40 – Jai Newcombe

Does anyone know if the scans Bolton had during the week were precautionary/follow up, or was there something more to it?

https://twitter.com/7NewsMelbourne/status/1407260418569949186

Lekdog

Not sure Joe, I’m hoping he’s fine!

Nadonis

Surely just a follow-up on the wrist / hand? I’m about to bring him in so hope he’s okay!

Joe_T

Geez I really hope so, I cannot afford to bring in another premo in the fwd line only for him to be rested or reinjure something!

Well done to them who have made it this far, especially a couple of teams who are ranked on the wrong side of 20k and have managed to survive this long.
thanks fellas.

Lazza

Fairly sure it was just a check to see that it had knitted properly..

ST1974

Trades – Options
L Jones to Briggs and Poulter to Pendlebury or
Poulter to Edwards and L Jones to Aliir or Houston
L Jones to Edwards (via A Fyfe DPP) and Poulter to Hind or Greene (via Brockman DPP) and start Byrnes on field.
L Jones to Briggs and Poulter to Edwards and use cash next week or week after to bring in Danger and Whitfield.
Either option leaves me with 8 trades.
Any thoughts or advice much appreciated.

Hedski

I like option 4, Danger and Whitfield

ST1974

Thanks Heidski. I am just worried that it leaves me with too many rookies.

FearTheBeard

Panic is setting in. Any help appreciated community.

Moore and Impey have to go. Carnage year for me. 5 trades left.

Grundy is coming back in next 2 weeks.

Do I go Moore to Haynes to help the bank? Named at CHB ?

Maynard? Whitfield? Daniels? Houston? Worth ponying up the extra 100k? I have CCJ on the bench so he would be Impeys perm replacement unless dropped/fattened up to a sale.

Hedski

Hard to say without seeing your team FTB

Fearthebeard

Short, Ridley, laird, mills, Stewart, moore (gotta go), Murphy, sharp

Bont, macre, Oliver, Merrett, Walsh, titch, Brayshaw, dusty, Bianca, Brockton, maceae

Gawn, reeves, Nuffie (this is where I’m moving ccj up this week and he will become Grundy in a week or 2

Zorko, ziebell, Bolton, tex, Heeney, impey, madden.

Fearthebeard

Also have swings everywhere Bianca can go up to d. Already got Murphy as cover.

Bianca cover mid.

Can swing madden up from forward to d to.

Can move guys like dusty down to forward too

Hedski

So you have $880k-ish between Moore/Impey plus whatever bank?
Could swing Dusty fwd and go cheap on Pendles and see what you have left? If you go Haynes as well would leave you some decent bank but I dont trust Haynes personally.

Fearthebeard

Yep might do that. Then can make a decision on defender for moore next week and play Bianca or Murphy this week?

FearTheBeard

Only concern now is this.

5 trades. If I do this weeks moves it leaves me with 3 and Moore to go. + Grundy needs to come in.

Can’t work as say Moore goes for similar price (becomes 2 trades)

I’m about 50k in bank with CCJ.

Long way off Grundy.

FearTheBeard

Only other thing is I cop this week with no partner for Gawn (reeves dropped)

If I do impey & moore for Haynes & Pendles I can then dump Reeves with CCJ at some stage for Grund yprobably as I have 103k banked + CCJ at 300kish after his week. Need 200k from reeves.

FearTheBeard

Or don’t touch haynes and hope 1 of madden, bianco and murphy can play d6 for rest of year LOL.

Derek

Madden looked ok. Should improve and hold his spot.

Who is your R3? And where is CCJ?

Hedski

Cheers Fozz! Panic time people!!!
Like many I have the Impey problem to deal with this week (or next).
I will be using him to get a R2 (maybe), need some help with my options, team is.
Def.
Stewart Laird Whitfield (Bianco)
Short Ridley May (Madden)
Mid.
Bont Steele Merrett (Duke Nukem)
Lyons Wines Taranto (Bramble)
Brayshaw Cripps (A.Fyfe)
Ruck
Gawn CCJ (Reeves)
Fwd
Zorko Ziebell Dusty (Treacey)
Hawkins Heeney Langford (IMPEY)
$121k in the bank.
Option 1 – 1 trade, Impey to ROB, not sold on him but I like saving a trade instead of using 2.
Option 2 – Impey to Chugg, swing CCJ fwd and trade Treacey to Grundy, leaves Reeves to cover, hopefully he gets some games (can do this next week and bank a bit of coin from Treacey).
Option 3 – Impey to Chugg, Reeves to Hodor Darcy (POD and leaves me with Treacey/CCJ as R3/F7 cover).
Option 4 – Hedski, you have 4 trades left d!ckhead…..HOLD AND WAIT (still have Impey to deal with).
Sorry for the essay fellas, any help appreciated.

Hedski

Forgot to add if i get Chugg he will allow a swing with Madden and a loop with CCJ/Heeney etc

Hedski

Oh crap, or I could go Impey to Briggs this week, wait a week and then go Treacey to Grundy…
This is doing my faaarking head in!

holty01

I’m holding off on trading Impey for a week. I have 3 I’m looking at bringing into my team and all have big BE. But I do have Waterman/Briggs as my f6 so can use Impey as my loop. You really don’t want 2 trades left with 9 rounds to go but it does mean you get Grundy which sounds great.

Hedski

I know, Grundy just so tempting, I stuffed up trading him out for Reeves the day before he was a late out when I could have held off and done my trades a different way that week.
Good luck in JR Mega League this week Holty!

FearTheBeard

exact same thing I did. Biting me now.

demonsdelight

thought you would be watching replays of 89 Dion . They look top heavy to me forward of center. Back to your team – 4 is the go cause that’s what i am doing ,unless you have a decent bank cheers mate NDD

Russty_

Hodor would be a nice Pod mate, his numbers are pretty good this season too.

Derek

Have think about Impey to Marshall next week

Saints said they will manage his TOG for the first few weeks

He can swing into R2 and only cost you 1 trade

You can still get Grundy and swing Marshall forward later

Hedski

I really like this Derek cheers mate.

JugHead

Nearly had a heart attack………AFL site news…..star saint midfielder late late out………
Jack……………………Billings….aint playing

Russty_

Oh yeah and than you thought. It’s only Billings lol, can understand the worry though, Steele is the only star in that team.

TRIGGA HAPPY

Geez with the meatball back bolton pushed out and up fwd. Having a quiet night not being in the guts.

Russty_

Yeah I noticed that, doesn’t help that the Saints are playing half decently, I’m sure they’ll find some new and interesting way to lose the game though.
Usually it’s by kicking 3 goals 28

TRIGGA HAPPY

Your saints looking ok rust. Taking it right up to them. Higgins and king must have practiced their goal kickin during the bye.

Russty_

I’m keeping the fingers crossed mate, it would be a highlight of the season to beat the Tigers.

demonsdelight

They had a special on Stkilda jumpers at wonthaggi big W today. Reckon i seen Tracca there .Maybe he is out there somewhere Definitely not your run of the mill saints team . Hope they win for the old fella at colac NDD

Russty_

Hey mate, of Tracca was buying a discount Saints jumper maybe he’d be interested in a trade?…We’ll offer up Kent, you can have him back lol

demonsdelight

You had your chance mate Carlin wasn’t too bad anyway Hope i spelt it right rassty. Where’s David nowadays mate

Russty_

Don’t know about David mate, he was pretty damning of Highmore though, Tommy seems to be going ok these days, all he needed was a decent opportunity.

demonsdelight

do they know the song though

gator59

Haha

Pman

Am low on trades (6) and can probably only take one of Edwards or Briggs. I like Edwards as he can score well and Briggs because he will give me a DEF/FWD swing with Madden so both are appealing but who has the best long term job security? Is Briggs likely to go out as soon as Mummy is back and can Edwards hold his place with the WC midfield depth? Any thoughts?

Cotch

both of them low on job security and will only be on your bench plus with only 6 trades left you wont be fence painting or upgrading them so go with the DPP

Pman

Good Points and I’ll strongly consider doing no trades at all this week as still have rookies with a bit more fat to be made too.

Russty_

Hey Pman, I think Mummy said at the start of the season that he’d probably only play 6 or so games, he’s played 7..and he’s about 48, I’d think they’d be trying to get games into Briggs and Flynn because they’ll both need to be there for next year.
Not sure if Edwards gets the same opportunities with Yeo, Kelly and Shuey back now.
This was on the Foxsports website too….
Greater Western Sydney has opted to keep the Kieren Briggs and Matt Flynn setup in its side, overlooking veteran Shane Mumford who was fit to return after injury.

Pman

Good food for thought too as I just assumed Mummy wasn’t 100% this week. The swing set Briggs gives me will help too and Edwards probably needs to play a blinder every week to keep his spot.

Cotch

That Shane Edwards is a gun footballer he kicked as many goals in 2 minutes as the rest of the tigers kicked in 3 quarters

Russty_

Tigers with a very uncharacteristic performance, they might rue this when they’re trying to get in the top 8.

Cotch

They can only play as good as the opposition lets them. Pig out on the reports on afl website tomorrow morning because after that it will all about the bombers and how they’re in the 8 and for something completely the same we might even get a profile write up on all of the bombers young players 🙂

Cotch

Ryder/Marshall the best ruck duo in the AFL if they can both play every game for the rest of the year saints will win a couple of finals. There might be individual rucks who are better but when combined they dominate the ruck all over the ground. Dunstan most under rated player at saints imo

Derek

That was a tough game to watch

Also had VC on Steele was only think keeping me interested

gator59

Alot of scaling up to do Derek.. 170 odd points to go around and thinking Steele will get a good chunk of it

demonsdelight

What your p’s and q’s tonight cobber could be an angry person lurking I watched all the game and your mob are ordinary compared to the top few so where does that leave the tiges,pretenders in my book Take the win and enjoy Gat

gator59

Tiges are gone i think.. But we’re just as likely to come out next week and get a 100 point drubbing

Russty_

Oh yeah Col, never under-estimate how shit the Saints can be from one week to the next, wouldn’t be surprised if the Pies beat us by 10 goals next week.

Derek

Turns out 7/10 my opponents had VC on Steele as well.

Cotch

I can’t believe that short scored more than highmore whats going on there Tommy has to be in line for best first year defender this decade surely

Russty_

No it should be best new defender of the century, and that includes the next 79 years 😉

Cotch

Ouch for the tiges 1st gamer Ryan 1 hitout for -1 supercoach LOL.
The really funny thing is that he’s the future of the clubs ruck department

Russty_

Speaking of outstanding Rookie performances, Conolly played 30% game time, had 11 possessions and only scored 18 points. With 7 marks and 81% efficiency, you’d think he would’ve scored better than that.

PeteB

Bloody Highmore. Held on to him all year until 2 rounds ago !

holty01

Same

Bob Butter

Take Highmores 91 or back in Haynes against the Hawks? Thinking of going with Haynes but I’m torn

Derek

Take 91.

Kat

I’d take the 91

Winko

Captains & Vice captain selections can be costly if you get them wrong this time of the season, what are people’s thoughts for this round. I’ve Gawn Miller & Gone as capt. What are thoughts on other options?

TRIGGA HAPPY

Is Brockman an emergecy this week or has he been dropped completely? Have ccj with the E on the bench so dont want brocks to play.
Had a look on hawks website and they havent listed the E’s.
Little help?

TRIGGA HAPPY

Kewl. Found it on hs website. Not named. 👍

Keenbutclueless

Not an E according to AFL website. It lists Greaves, Cousins, Burgoyne and Nash

TRIGGA HAPPY

👍

jel

If you want to be 100% certain, Box hill play at 1pm today and he is listed to play for them.

Derek

Burgoyne will be the sub. Will get him to 399 games

ST1974

Trying to decide at this stage in the season whether it is worth to bring in both Briggs and Edwards this week. It would leave me with 8 trades, however it would enable me to bring in both Danger and Whitfield (or Short) next week.
Also, who is everyone going with in terms of VC and C. At this stage I am going with Gawn (VC) and J Kelly (C), however, I am very tempted to put the VC on Ziebel against GC and putting the C on Gawn. Thoughts?

Hedski

I went with Lyons VC (119), have the C on Wines vs Swans.
I am not the person to be talking to about trades, I have 4.

Derek

Kelly was pretty sore last week. Probably still effected.

gawn C for me

ST1974

Thank you Hedski and Derek. I might go the VC on Wines and the C on Gawn.

Kat

I was Steele VC into Bont C and have taken Steeles score. I had to have someone in the first 2 games so I had a non playing loop. Tossed up btw Zorko and Steele for VC and as usual picked the wrong one but Steeles 130 ish is still OK. Not being greedy and risking Bont

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Had the VC on Steele and the C on Bont as well Kat. I had thought about Grundy and Clarry for my VC/C, since I had both Reeves and Impey that could be used as a loop, but wanted to have a VC in a early game and Steele has been in good form the last month or so.

Derek

I had VC on Steele, but decided to give C to Oliver. Give him strength

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Could end up about the same Derek, or at least get close.

S C tragic

Yikes, what a rd. replacing Gray,Impey, Powell managed L Jones gone thank god for Highmore. So may decisions so few trades. At this stage other seasons still had 14/15 trades, this year injuries form slumps suspensions. I think I’m in the right room PANIC IT IS.

Shake n bake

need to start one Newcombe bramble or Bianco?

Hedski

Bianco

David C

Fyfe is a late out. Still in 9% of teams.

Russty_

Rough break for anyone starting McCreery on field, he got injured on zero points.

Wtf

So guys here’s a wuestion for you all.
Port v Sydney game early in the second quarter
Rozee clearly threw the ball but not pinged by the umpires, does that still count as a handball??

Wtf

question

Tiggytrain

Take CCJs 67 or roll the dice on weightman v west coast? Weightman averages 73.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

65+ is usually the cut off score for a rookie. I’d be happy with it, Also depends on how you are going in your league games, do you need to roll the dice Weightman scores more.

Lazza

Lazza with a couple of “rookie” errors this week … didn’t know that Frederick was playing, so lost my Capt loophole .. meant to trade Impey to a MID before Pies/Freo game via DPP .. so, instead of having a MID premo on field I’ve got Weightman up FWD with Impey still on the bench and no FWD available that I want to trade to. Will be the difference in some games .. look like losing all leagues now 🙄

Maverick

I am feeling your pain lazza.
All week id penciled in doing my last upgrade LJones too Nick Haynes. went too do it and the port Adelaide game started! Got busy with the young family & I missed the trade now Hayne will be 40k dearer next week. Thankfully I had Murphy with the E (72 pts) but still hurts!
I needed to do Hayne this week to upgrade Impey to danger next.

cotch

James Jordon could miss the rest of the season and still win the rising star. All of the other nominees have played 1 or 2 good games and really struggled in the rest but Jordon has played well in almost every game.

PeteB

Hanging on to him until the very last upgrade

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I probably won’t end up winning, but happy to see that I can at least take it up to two of the best players in Holty and Trigga.

TRIGGA HAPPY

Gonna be close mate.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Yes, too close to call at the moment with six unique players still to go. When I saw I was up against you Trigga, I thought there goes my finals chances in ”The Rat Pack” league, but at least I still have a chance and I’m not getting blown away.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I just looked at the match ups at quarter time in the GWS v Haw game, you have me, I needed to be ahead before the Eagles v Bulldogs game, not going to happen.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Things can change in a quarter of football, going better now, thanks to Whitfield and Titch, not sure it will be enough though, since my Bont/Weightman v Macrae/Daniel has me at a disadvantage.

holty01

How we all going community?

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Currently on 1,486 hoping to get close to my best score of the season (2,356).Still have premiums Titch, Whitfield, Bont, Walsh, Laird and rookies Briggs and Weightman to come, plus my Steele VC score to kick in. Should win 50% of my league games.

Derek

i think you have me covered.

I still have Gray, i missed the cut-off time to trade him out and had to take Madden’s score. Hopefully Gray becomes Grundy next week

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I have our game down as a win Derek, the fact I still have the 132 score from VC Steele to come should get me over the line.

Hedski

Going to be a close match in JR mega league Holty, think you might pip me.
1811 with Cripps Whitfield Taranto Laird and Bont to go.
Wines as captain this week was a miserable failure.

JugHead

Still 7 left and projecting around 2250. Did well through the byes, but I think 2250 would see me slide a bit this week. Just inside the top 1000, and that score wont cut it.

TOPHAWK

1440 with 9 to come. Hoping for 2250-2300. Below par after bring in Shai Bolton this week. Lets call that a brainfade. LOL

TRIGGA HAPPY

Meatball back impacted his mid time. Tiges were putrid. He was just one of many who had a bad night. Will bounce back.

Dontblushbabbie

Projected 2449, had the VC on Steele

Cotch

Who is the best captain choice?
Bont against Eagles in Perth. Do eagles tag?
Kelly against Hawks at the G
Mitchell against Giants at the G. He’ll be smothered by DeBoer wont he?
Laird against Blues at Marvel. Blues are really bad at stopping running mids I think

Rover

Curnow tags a bit
Supposed to be raining in Perth
De Boer will be on Tich
And Jelly is probably a little injured
Hope this helps

Cotch

Bont normally goes well in the wet?

Cotch

Ooops. I went to Ikea in Richmond and I got hypnotized by the yoga pants cameltoe parade for so long that I missed the opportunity to take the C off Kelly and put it on Bont. At the current pace Bont will beat kellys score before 1/2 time

TRIGGA HAPPY

Going on form. Bont or laird. Alabama will probably attach himself to Jelly.

Tiger

Carlton needs to win so I think Curnow will tag Laird. The weather in Perth is abit of a worry too. Thinking Macrae might go a little better in the wet than Bont.

Cotch

Dear oh dear the AFL make me chuckle with their love of the bombers. Here are a couple of lines from the afl match reports of the Melbourne versus essendon.
For those that didn’t watch the game there were actually Melbourne players on the ground and Melbourne led the game for more than 80% of the time, no Melbourne players were beaten by their opponents and Essendon never looked liked winning.

“Melbourne showed it could match the fantastic football”

“Nothing was easy as Demons responded… to overcome an in form and fired up bombers outfit”

“Essendon could feel hard done by”

“The Bombers claimed three successive majors on either side of the first change to convert unwavering pressure into scoring opportunities, holding the Demons goalless for well over a quarter of football in the meantime.”

“Essendon’s improving youngsters…. were keen to show that a maturity is developing within their game and steadied from the disappointment to hang tough until deep in the final quarter.” NO MENTION OF JORDON!

“You had to admire Harrison Jones’ remarkable ability to get the ball from his hands to his feet so quickly. Last week’s NAB AFL Rising Star nominee collected the ball on the goal line and, within an instant and the one motion, had the ball on his boot before it had managed to trickle through for a behind.”
I’ve never seen more hype over a behind can’t wait for the AFL to change ‘Goal of the Year’ to ‘Score of the Year’ so that Harry can get a trophy 🙂

Cotch

The AFL seem to think that if you don’t change the rules every year the game is going backwards (but their rules changes are usually bad) so I’ve come up with a rule change that will actually make the game better.

If the ball goes betwen the 2 big posts it’s a goal if it goes between the big and little posts its a point, if the ball bounces back into play after hitting a post its play on. It shouldn’t matter if it scrapes the post.

That will stop a lot of the wasted time for score reviews.

Russty_

Well done to all those Captaining Bont today…looks like he’s going LARGE 🙂

demonsdelight

did u have him mate

Russty_

Nah not me Neil, I took Steele’s score.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Had the C on Bont, but decided to not be greedy and take the 132 from VC Steele. I’ve missed out on so many points from playing it safe and being happy with 125-135 scores from my VC, only for my original C to go 25+ points better.

Russty_

Hey John, yeah it’s hard though, whenever ya get greedy it tends to bite ya on the bum.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

That is true Russty and the main reason I take those scores from my VC. It’s just frustrating when the original C goes large, but Bont might help me get over the line in a few games, so I should just be happy he is doing well.

Kat

Looks like you did the right thing John. Bont has slowed down a bit the second half and although he will still score well it may not be too much more than Steeles score. I had the same Vc/V and took Steeles score as well

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Yes, I think Bont and Macrae swapped places as far as scoring goes in the second half, so just the usual 20-25 score difference between my VC and C.

One Touch Wonder

Needed a SHARK MOVE so put C on Laird this week

Russty_

He’s going alright for you otw, just ticked over a ton.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Well done OTW, that could win you a few games this round. Laird had scored well in four of his last five games and was a good POD for the C.

Cotch

LOL @ Cripps -1 in the 1st qrtr I hope Carlton didn’t offer him a payrise to resign and I bet the bombers reckon that they dodged a bullet by him rejecting their 1.2 mil p/year over 3 years offer

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

The battle for the final three spots in the top 8 of ”Up There Cazaly” and ”The Rat Pack”is going to go down to the wire with up to six teams a chance to finish in the 6-8 positions.

Shake n bake

Have won 5 straight now in my league John l was 17th 6 weeks ago. The only good thing l still have 11 trades left after so many injuries. Only used 5 over last 4 weeks. Also nice score you got this week.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

That’s a huge move up the ladder Shake and having that many trades up your sleeve will give you a big advantage over teams like me who will just have to hold trades for the next few weeks. Well done on your score as well Shake, very happy with my 2,469 managed to win 10/10 league games and still a chance for a few finals. Getting a win over Holty who was 2nd in Cazaly and Trigga who was 1st in Rat Pack was the highlight. I thought Trigga had me, but just got over the line by 7pts. The next closest was against you in TheSonsOfAnarchy, if it hadn’t been for Bont’s big score I think you would have had me covered.

TRIGGA HAPPY

Well done mate got me by 7 with bont the difference, that and Heeney being outscored by Briggs FFFS. Thought Macrae might get me over the line. He went close. You know when u get beaten with a score of 2462 that is some serious opposition. See u in the finals. We shall meet again.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Thanks Trigga, I didn’t think I was a chance until Whitfield and Titch got going. At half time in the Eagles/Bulldogs game I thought I might have it won, then in the second half Bont stopped and Macrae was coming, so yes a very close call. I really needed that win to stay in contention for the finals, if I had lost, it would have been all over red rover, at least you are safely entrenched in the top four, so the loss didn’t really effect you.

TRIGGA HAPPY

👏

1 trade this week
Poulter to Danger. 👍

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Nice.

Derek

I lost both this week. Really needed a win. Got Shake in a couple of do or die matches next week

Cripps will be gone from my team next week. I might be competitive

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I know there were other things to fix up Derek, but I would have traded Cripps out before some of our mid rookies.

derek

i was going to and then he had a decent score. fools gold i tell ya.

Rick Grimes

Hoping for some fixture chaos and extra trades!!

PeteB

Is Impey confirmed out for the season yet ? With trades so low I really can’t afford to be trading out players who might come back in two weeks.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I think he’s out for the season, we will need to trade him out.

PeteB

Sounds like it. I’ve been burnt a couple of times this year trading out players only to have them return a couple of weeks earlier than expected.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I’m holding for one more week just to be sure, plus I have four players that I am interested in to replace him, so need another week to see how they go before I decide.

PeteB

I’m bringing in Danger this week. Just a matter of whether it’s for Impey or a rookie.

PeteB

Aargh I see he’s officially listed for the season. I guess that’s my decision made. Bugger !!

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Yes saw that, Impey will have to go now.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Bloody hell, I just looked at who I am up against next round and it doesn’t get any easier. I’m playing Trigga, Holty and Shake again, just in different leagues. So you will all have a chance to pay me back for this round.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I should add, I’m also playing Hedski in ”TheSonsOfAnarchy” league where he is sitting in 2nd spot, so it could be a tough round ahead.

Good luck bud, you have some fine opponents there.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Yes, not sure I will be able to repeat my performance for a second week running, so expecting the worst, plus teams will be improving by trading, while I’ll be holding for another week.
