Cheat Sheet – Round 12

Published by Statty Matty on

Morning Community. The bye rounds are upon us … my least favourite time of the SC season, in particular the first bye round. I struggle to find advice for you because I’m either recommending someone who won’t play this week, or will miss a game in the next 2 weeks.

And there are literally no players on the bubble this week, so all the targets are at the more premo end of the list, barring a couple.

So there are a couple of rules for this week which you all need to understand …

Rule #1 – “try not to trade at all”. If you can get by without trading, that’s a good thing. Only trade out of necessity.

Rule #2 – “If you have to trade, make sure it helps your other bye rounds”. I’ve been preaching at you for weeks to have a detailed plan and stick to it. If your plan involves a Trade Boost for Round 13, and you still need to bank some extra cash this week, go right ahead. This strategy was key in previous years when we only had 3 trades per bye. Downgrading a week early to hold extra cash was key. It still is, but to a lesser extent with the extra trade.

I don’t have much more to offer you this week, coaches. Just stick to the plan, and cross your fingers that the Footy Gods bless your team this week.

Stewart or Dawson as last defender lads?

Joe_T

It having Dawsons dpp isnt something that’s of benefit to your side, go Stewart

Russty_

I think it’s gotta be Stewart, a defender capable of scores like that is rare.

Joe_T

Anyone want to try put these rookies in order of JS?

1. Butler
2. Owens
3. Parnell
4. Wehr

Rick Grimes

Owens.

demonsdelight

rick nailed it Owens but I got a feeling Cleary might play a lot

Russty_

Just not yet it seems, Butler seems to be holding his spot but doesn’t score much.

Derek

The hawks are going to rotate their young fellas during the year. Butler is getting a run now, Ward & Maginness will be back later and Long is sure to get a game soon. They will want more games from Callow as well, future gun.

demonsdelight

not a reliable s/c team a line thru the hawks

Paul

I don’t know anything about Adelaide players, but I see they have Butts and Brown missing from the backline just for this week, so Parnell would need to do something pretty special to keep his spot, you’d think.

demonsdelight

He did look classy against weaker opposition

Rick Grimes

Tim English career scores against Cats: 65, 54, 77.

Russty_

Relevant info Rick, looks like the Cats are his boogeyman.

demonsdelight

Turned out to be spot on info .kudos to Rick

JR SURVIVOR – FINAL ELIMINATIONS

Round 11 saw the final eliminations before the merger into the Champion of Champions Group.

There were only eliminations from Divisions 1, 2, 7 & 8 this week (everyone remaining in the other divisions are all through to the merger)

What Is A Bender (Div 8) was able to use their immunity necklace this week and survive. This meant the ‘people’s hero’, Highway Dads is the unlucky team eliminated as a result. Highway Dads was ranked 40,513 overall, but was still surviving, giving hope to all the other teams struggling this year. bad luck Cam.

We also lost our 2021 Champion, Holt (Div 7). It was a magnificent defence of his title but just found himself in a hot division at the end.

ELIMINATIONS

The following teams have been eliminated this week

Div 1: The Try Agains. & BorisBumblebees (8pts from safely)
Div 2: Oliver ‘Nother, flyers & Tophawks
Div 7: Nowyoucanseeme, Point Nank Range & Holt
Div 8: Athletico Dothraki, Highway Dads & FunkHouser

All remaining teams in all 9 Divisions will now progress to the champion of Champions Group to be played after the byes.

I will make a list of all the remaining teams later in the week and the Group Code to join. The qualified teams will have until the start of Round 15 to join the group and battle to become the ultimate survivor.

thanks fellas.

Kat

Good luck to all those teams left. Great effort to still be alive

demonsdelight
