Panic Room | BYE WEEK 1

Published by Fozdaddy on

Well.

We’ve arrived.

Most teams have spent the past six weeks preparing for the next month of football.

But you’re locking yourselves into the panic room, because you’ve done zero planning.

That’s okay, come to papa.

Let’s work through this together.

Newz you can Uze

Firstly, elephant in the room. Six sides will miss games this week.

GWS, Port Adelaide, Richmond, St Kilda, Carlton and Essendon players will not take the field, to play either the real or fantasy football.

The good news is that you can use your bye players as loopholes, as they are not locked out until the final game of the round. So if you have, say, Greg Clark playing Saturday and Robbie McComb on Friday night, you can see if McComb drops a 70 and then swap Clark onto the bench for Mitch Owens. Same goes for captains.

The Western Bulldogs have brought back Bailey Smith after he missed last week with illness. He’s a good player at Marvel Stadium, so expect him to be a good scorer. Jordan Sweet was dropped from the Dogs, so Tim English will ruck by himself against Mark Blicavs and Rhys Stanley, who was brought back from his ankle injury.

Patrick Parnell will make his debut for Adelaide. The baby-faced killer(?) was drafted in last year’s mid-season draft. Taylor Walker also returns. Shannon Hurn will play for West Coast, while Jeremy McGovern doesn’t go out despite being subbed out last week on 37.

There is literally no SuperCoach news from Gold Coast v North Melbourne, and will probably be as boring a game as this paragraph on it. Hopefully Touk Miller scores 300 points.

Melbourne has swung the axe after its first loss of the season. Steven May goes out with injury, but Toby Bedford, Jake Melksham, Trent Rivers and Sam Weideman were dropped. Christian Salem returns, which could impact Jake Bowey, while Adam Tomlinson, Ed Langdon, Tom McDonald and James Harmes all come in as well.

Matt Roberts was dropped after scoring 8 on debut, so better than Mitch Owens but also it stunk pretty bad.

Ned Reeves is back to provide some relief for Hawks’ ruck stocks, while Jaeger O’Meara and Jack Gunston are both set to return. Collingwood have not made any changes.

I love having the best game of the round on a Sunday afternoon… Heath Chapman won’t play for the Dockers, with Ethan Hughes and Lloyd Meek coming in alongside Bailey Banfield, while Hugh McCluggage has returned to the Lions side at the expense of Callum Ah Chee.

When a heart break, it don’t breakeven

What am I s’posed to do, when the best part of me is owning you?

-77 Joel Jeffrey

-72 Luke Strnadica

-67 Luke Cleary

-18 Rhylee West

-18 Jake Soligo

What am I s’posed to say, when I’m losing cash when I have you stay?

204 Christian Salem

173 Touk Miller

171 Dayne Zorko

170 Tom Hickey

168 Jeremy McGovern

(My team’s) Falling to piecessssss, yeah

Oh Captain my Captain

Out of all the Bulldogs, Marcus Bontempelli has the best history against Geelong. His previous two scores were 143 and 122, while Jack Macrae and Josh Dunkley (both great players and could score well) haven’t cracked the ton against them in recent times. Tim English had a great game last week and is a solo ruck, but Geelong has not conceded more than 110 points to a ruck outside of Reilly O’Brien, who only rucked against Mark Blicavs and Shannon Neale. Rhys Stanley is back for the Cats, so one to contemplate.

Rory Laird against West Coast could go large. His previous two scores are 120 and 104, and has dropped below 100 once this season. Touk Miller has good history against North Melbourne, with 131, 123 and 110 his previous three. He hasn’t been his usual self in recent weeks, so careful on that. But hopefully he goes large.

Clayton Oliver is in roaring form at the moment. His history against the Swans is also good (125, 130) and he typically gets up for big games. Christian Petracca was sick last week, Goodwin said he’s feeling great now, but I’d want to give him a miss as a captain. Max Gawn v Tom Hickey might be good, he’s scored 112, 150 and 113 in his last three against the Swans.

Lachie Neale is up against his old side. Last time he played them (2020), he scored 171. He could go huge back in Perth.

Hey guys,
So the lack of rookies is proving to be a massive pain in the bum for me this week. I’m desperate to get English in but can’t do that without downgrading SDK. Is it worth getting parnell this week purely to free up cash? My last bye round is looking good atm so he wont be required i reckon, and it means i’ll go from 17 to 18 playing players this week after bringing them in. What do you reckon?

TommyC99

Is carroll/Hamilton to Butler worth it? I have 15 trades left after my first 3 trades this week. Should have 18 playing this week and got 16 before trades next week

Russty_

Not sure if Butler is worth getting in, maybe wait for Owens next week if Carroll/Hamilton not named.

Kat

English is still to pass Stewarts score and its nearly 3/4 time, what a great trade-in

Russty_

I can confirm he’s passed Stewart’s score, just not Khamis’s yet 😉
This is how English should’ve scored last week really, after 5 weeks off.

Last edited 25 days ago by Russty_
Kat

I think the only positive is he scored more than Smith, who was another trade option and will be out for a few weeks after that head butt and my other trade option in Stewart, so could be worse!!!!!!

Russty_

English will be fine Kat and is a good trade in, maybe the rust caught up with him a bit this week. Smith for me is not a midfield keeper yet.
Stewart is just bad luck for those that had him or brought him in.
I didn’t get English or Stewart this week but wanted to sell the farm to get them.
Two weeks in a row I haven’t traded yet so that’s good for me cause I traded hard up until now.

Lazza

Same, would have liked to bring one of those in.. but like you I have used more trades than usual… so not planning to trade this week… with only 16 on field the Stewart and English scores helps me somewhat as does those who had the V on Dunkley or Macrae .. leaves me with a chance in the important money league games.
Currently have Laird into Oliver for V/C.

Russty_

Hey mate, B.O.M says wet in Adelaide today, not sure how Laird goes in the wet but I’m changing to Neale, maybe Sicily

Derek

Sicily is a good call

Lazza

Cheers Russty. Laird is my VC, so not a huge risk with only playing the West Coast Eaglets… and he’s going ok so far.. (I missed the kickoff anyways)

Russty_

Going better now after that late goal Laz, will you take that score?

Lazza

136 🤔.. given recent history, I should.. though having only 16 players I was hoping for 160+…. Probably not worth risking it for an extra 24 pts.
Not sure if Oliver v Syd, or Neale back @ Freo or Sicily v Pies will get there ..

Russty_

Terrible luck for Stewart owners this week, was looking like going big again before the concussion.

holty01

😭

Derek

Only reason I didn’t get him last week was my round 13 had too many bye players.
I guess he will drop in price a bit now

Russty_

Yep for sure, works out well for us I guess, sucks a big one for those who brought him in this week. How much do you think he’ll cost after this week?

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

He should get to about 550k by round 15.

Russty_

Thanks for that John, I’ll be looking to bring him in before round 14

Last edited 25 days ago by Russty_
JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I’ll wait for the price drop, don’t have a lot of cash and there aren’t a lot of good rookies on the bubble. Might do McComb>Owens next week, but that’s about it.

Russty_

Yeah Owens for me too next week, maybe Wehr too if he gets named.

Rick Grimes

English has a dire record v Cats. I did warn people. Against athletic rucks/talls, he can be negated. Plays GWS next tho, should be back to best.

Rick Grimes

Unless GWS put extra work into him.

Russty_

Did well to get 80 really, the goal helped a lot, wasn’t looking good for most of the game.

Derek

I can’t believe he got 80. Was on 59 when he got the free kick and goal and took him to 76.

spent a lot of time in bench rather than resting forward.

I decided to get Darcy instead of English

Russty_

Yeah maybe the lack of fitness for being out for 5 caught up with him?
Darcy ay…good luck with him, looked good last week and the week before, you just need him to stay out there.

Derek

I’ve got a few trades up my sleeve, might even jump back on Grundy when he is back.

never had Darcy but he is a fav to watch so happy to give him a run

Rick Grimes

How many weeks for Baz? Looked bad and he didn’t miss. 3-4?

Lazza

Depends on how they grade impact … if it’s medium he gets 3 weeks, 2 weeks with early plea.
If they grade it low then 2 and 1.
If they grade it High then he’s off to the Tribunal.

holty01

I think the outcome will play a big part. Tuohy played on so maybe 2 weeks. If he split him open, well different story.

Rick Grimes

Can’t see less than 2 weeks. They was clearly damage to Tuohy’s forehead. Cant have that, need to set an example. Smith was probably a trade anyway, not scoring well.

ST1974

I have 18 on the field this week but only 17 next week. Is it worth trading Hamilton or Rioli Jnr to Butler (Haw) to give me an extra scorer on the field this week and 18 on the field next week or should I hold fire and wait to see what happens next week. At this stage my plan next week is to downgrade one of Stephens, Khamis, Soligo or Rosas and upgrade De Koning.
Appreciate any thoughts or advice.

Russty_

I’d probably hold and assess next week who gets named, Khamis had a decent score and was even doing some backup ruck work.
My goal from here besides getting as close to full premo as possible is to have a full bench of playing rookies (or better than rookies), and only one definite donut for looping.

Lazza

The good thing about bye rounds is that if you take your VC score early you can flip it on the last couple of games if you need extra points to win your key league.
I’ve taken Laird’s 136 at this point but have Neale and Sicily up my sleeve ..
Bl00dy Touk is unreadable..

Russty_

I think other teams have been tagging Touk lately, but when he’s left to run amok he can go huge. Well done those with the C on Touk this week 🙂

Kat

I at last got a good C score with Touk as my C but still close in most of my league matches

Russty_

Nice one Kat, glad you’re doing well, I had mine on Neale but changed it to Oliver late, now he’s being tagged by Rowbum, hopefully he breaks him and does what the redheaded boofheaded gun can do 🙂

Kat

Oliver is going OK, will be a serviceable score for you hopefully but big Maxxy is the one at the moment. Pretty sure Shake has him as C

Shake n bake

Yeah was always going with Gawn. Ladhams a tad small hickey out was also hoping he would kick a goal or 2, got 3.

demonsdelight

yesterday’s hero was huge

Shake n bake

Hope it gets me a few wins. Only have 18 scoring players this week

joe444

Here’s a hypothetical: if there were a rookie defender GUARANTEED to play every game of season from now on, worth $193,000 and with a BE of -2, who is averaging in the 60s, would you pick him at D8?

Just asking because, apart from being a rookie, I just described Jed Bews.

joe444

(correction: his three round average is 41, but his BE is now -5 after last night (64 score))

Russty_

If you can afford it and the rest of your team’s already set?…that’s like something you do with 5 or 6 weeks to go and you’re buying insurance players for the inevitable disasters that strike at finals time.

Derek

I noticed him a couple of weeks ago as bye cover, but R13 bye didn’t help.

won’t make much cash, doesn’t have DPP, pass.

Lazza

Rosas contribution most welcome .. go boy

Russty_

The Kid’s got some talent ay?….how about that pickup and goal he did.

Lazza

Looks like he’ll be a keeper for GC .. might se some cash gen finally .. very tight t the moment …. Might have to run to R18 before hitting full premo .. otherwise it’s a loophole strategy

Russty_

I don’t mind still having Dekoning and Paddy McCartin, they seem to be getting better and better. Maybe they’re not just monetary objects to be traded out.

Lazza

Paddy’s 95 tonight has him in my team for a while yet… I’ve been looping him and De Koning all season …

Derek

My plan was to turn him into Hewett next week. Maybe.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Keeping both, saving trades.

Lazza

Is McCartin headed for a 73 ???

Russty_

If he gets cleaned up heavily by one of his own players, he will lol
Maybe DeKoning and Paddy are Brothers from another Mother?

Lazza

Hahaa.. they’re joined somewhere along the chain for sure

Russty_

That “yesterday’s hero” Gawn is going ok after one quarter on 55 points.
Some people just can’t help putting their foot in their mouth.

Kat

I’m happy having him in my team

Lazza

If not for Gawn, the Swans would have won by 5 goals.. great game … McInerney’s last 10 mins was sensational and PaddyM was brilliant

Lazza

A lazy 100+ At half time for today’s hero .. 💪

Russty_

English, Witts, Darcy, Preuss are the clear top 4 rucks this year. Preuss is unreliable for playing every week and Darcy is fragile but they are both a lot better than John Paul Youngs 1970’s chart topper ‘Yesterdays Hero’ when they are on the field
Sorry but I don’t need any fragile players in my team this time of year.
For you to say that Darcy is a better pick than Gawn even though you admit he’s a fragile player is just plain bad advice.
Witts has been good and proved to be durable and high scoring.
Preuss is no lock either, and is “unreliable for playing every week” according to you but scores well when he’s on field but coach seems to have no problem dropping him and playing Flynn.
It’s quite clear to me you don’t really know what you’re talking about, and you’re quite happy to administer bad advice to people, probably because you’re trying to sabotage the site. Hopefully, you’re not successful.

demonsdelight

doubt i have seen a more dominant ruck performance than ‘yesterdays hero’ MAX GAWN Surely he gets his 6th A A and captaincy ,if David doesn’t judge it that is

Derek

I had the C on him, but just before the Suns game changed to Miller. Oh well.

Russty_

Not a bad consolation prize there mate! haha

demonsdelight

why do you always just beat me commenting mate lol Yes I think ”foot in the mouth’ was way off ‘Gawn easily no.1 and I will captain him’ trouble is mate I didn’t take my own advice ,Clarry will do .Swans were easily the better team and will be hard to toss especially with Buddy Dees have a ton of work now starting with their non existing talls . 2 browns were hopeless Mcdonald Hibbert and rivers will help Ndd

Russty_

yeah I had to check your side mate I thought you said somewhere he was your C this week, Oliver’s still ok though, was pretty happy to have yesterday’s hero in my side LOL

demonsdelight

cameron is doing ok early days though

Russty_

Sure is, Sidebum looking ok too, maybe an option?

demonsdelight

not for mine lets you down solid but not for s/c

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Well done Rick having the VC on Max in our ”Holy Grail” league game, you got me my 3pts. I could keep the C on Neale, but happy to take the VC 134 from Oliver. Was looking at 5 wins, 2 losses, 3 in doubt, early, but after tonights games that will now be 3 wins, 6 losses, I in doubt.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

1 in doubt.

ST1974

Should I take Oliver’s score as Captain or stick with Neale. Currently predicted to win 3 out of my four leagues if I take Oliver’s score and would only win the fourth is Neale ripped out a score similar to what he did last time against Freemantle or what big Maxy did last night.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

I’d take the 3/4. What if Neale gets injured in the first quarter, you could then end up losing one of the three that you would have won with Oliver.

demonsdelight

mcgragh for the dees first pick ? no thanks offer it to the dogs for Bruce

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Traded Daicos>Jeffrey after saying I would keep him for his def/mid swing and now SuperCoach Mumma only needs him to score 87 to win our match up. I think my close games are currently running at 6 won, 12 lost.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Wow, it won’t even be close with Daicos on 65 at half time.

Russty_

Tough to get the league wins mate with so many good coaches around. Makes it more enjoyable though rather than just entering public leagues where half the coaches give up.

demonsdelight

even last year when we were both 35k we kept going Rust is mcdonald a slim chance now for D6?

Russty_

For me?…I’d probably prefer Dawson but he’s not a bad option if money is an issue.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

The annoying part is I didn’t really need to trade Daicos>Jeffrey, it was purely to get some cash in the bank for an upgrade that I might not even do next week.

Russty_

Jeffery did ok though, it’s always painful when your trade out has a blinder the very next game. I traded out Butters and then he scored 130 lol

Derek

I’ve been trying to hold Daicos as my D7/M9, plus get me through the byes. Today was a nice return to good scores.

demonsdelight

Cameron playing great but comes up against ‘yesterday’s hero’ next week

Russty_

Hopefully he still goes ok Neil, he does plenty of other good things around the ground besides taps.

Lazza

Need Neale and Brodie to score a combined 156 to win money league… I could bring in a 3rd player to guarantee the win 🤔

Russty_

You should get there easy Laz, Neale needs to get a move on a bit

Lazza

Easy in the end … was happy beating 18 with 16 players. Only won 2 though, lost all but one by less than 100.. 17 would have done it .. might have 18 on the park this week without trading again …

Derek

Brodie will do that by himself

Lazza

Almost did 💪

Derek

Traded Darcy in this week. Didn’t really need to, but Khamis only scored 43 and I only had min 18.

Darcy on 40 at 3/4 time.

Russty_

I think Meek stole all his points.

Shake n bake

He definitely did. I only had 18. But at least l didn’t trade. McDonald was my sad point, Gawn capt high point.

Derek

I didn’t even know Meek was playing

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

With Darcy going badly, I have a chance to win a game I thought I would lose.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

All up happy with this bye round, looking like I will win 5/10, with one 3pt loss. Happy I took the 134 from VC Oliver, was tempted to go with Neale to try and win two close games, but decided it wasn’t worth it. The only thing I stuffed up was trading out Daicos after saying I would be keeping him as a D6/D7-M8/M9 swing.

TRIGGA HAPPY

Nah u had to pull the trigga on daicos mate. Was struggling lately. Maxed rookie to a premo no brainer. Like all of us, needed the cash. Who saw that coming?? Glad u did though as got me over the line in the happy place. 😉

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Yes, 30 points, I started our match up as a one in doubt, but last night I marked it down as a loss. I downgraded Daicos to Jeffrey for the cash. The extra 49 points would have won me four more games. But you are right Trigga had to be done, had a BE of 90, scored under 70 last three games, the figures said trade.

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

27 points after scaling.

demonsdelight

played you 3 times trig and the last few minutes was going to get fredericks to f u up Would have got me there plus Holty beat me by 1pt It meant a lower return for 13 and 14 Who knows if a move is right or wrong time will tell At least now i get 2 prems for next week whereas i would have only 1 plus fred Congrats mate bloody good games NDD

TRIGGA HAPPY

That would have been an incredible ballsy move to bring in Fredrick. Considering he hadn’t really touched the ball first half and was on around 10-15 pts. Big second half.

demonsdelight

I was thinking you would write that when my hand was hovering but I checked the leagues you and Holty were in and a loss kept me well in .You were lucky but the season is full of those stories.I dont know how i even got close to you great tussles though Trigg

TRIGGA HAPPY

Byes always a raffle mate esp first round

Kat

Won 7/10 this week with lots of close matches so reasonably happy. Trading Daicos to English did not help but is a positive trade for the future I hope. Macdonald was my low score as expected however my POD’s in Petracca and Jackson let me down with lower than normal scores. Have trades to upgrade this week but not much rookie cash generation to do a one up, one down. Might have to trade one of McCartin, Hinge or Dekoning this week however they all still have some cash to make. Trades may depend on whether Pruess is named to play or not. Hope everyone else was happy with their week.

Derek

Headed into Sunday looking at maybe 2100+. Mitchell, Neal & especially Darcy were below expectations and managed only 1991. Won 9/10 leagues and moved up 5k in rankings.

Moved C from Gawn to Miller at the last minute, was feeling pretty happy with that move until Max went nuts, oh well.

Highly Commended awards go to: Libba (123), McCartin (95) & Daicos (113).

Daniel continues to be an ‘almost’, having one big half every week.

Disappointments were: Dunkley (66), Petracca (70) & Darcy (59). Just bought Darcy in this week, he must have been crook.

Round 13 is my weakest bye round, stopped me getting Stewart, Bont or Laird. Stewart will be my last defender upgrade in a couple of weeks after a little price drop, Bont looks to be carrying a shoulder injury, Titch to Laird after his bye.

demonsdelight

I think most would have R 13 as the weakest bye Derek Darcy Trac and Duncs will all come good but Trac is the weakest Compared to Oliver Trac is way behind His d/e is poor Viney and Clarry were the same last year and Choco worked miracles with both If he improves Trac he will be an absolute gun not now though

Derek

i fell into a trap of getting Trac just prior to the WCE and North games. He did good but they don’t play them every week.

I have a few trades up my sleeve, might do a sideways after the byes

Russty_

1991’s good Derek, would’ve been huge if the Meek didn’t inherit the points! lol
I’m having to field 5 rookies this week so that sucks!

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

Well done on your score and wins Kat, getting over 1,900 and 7/10 wins during the bye rounds is a very good result.

Kat

Thanks John Getting my C (Miller) right for a change helped although Maxxy would have been better

JohnDJ59.Black Flag

HaHa, can’t be greedy Kat. Getting the VC/C right is so important, it can set the round up for either a plus or negative result. I’ve done alright with my VC choices so far. Only had to pick a C four times, but have missed out on some massive scores for the C, Max being a case in point.

Russty_

Hi Kat well done getting 7 wins, I managed 10 this week with 2017, Oliver as C not Gawny unfortunately, I am up against you twice this week so good luck, maybe it’ll be a double draw lol
Not sure what trades to do yet this week but want to get Owens and or Wehr if named, want to be able to afford English and Stewart in the next few weeks…am hesitant to offload Dekoning and or McCartin, they’re going so well now. I have a few iffy players though like Rioli and Pendles has gone to crap not playing back anymore. Both might need to be replaced.

Kat

Another top score Russty, you are certainly having a great year and right up there amongst it with your ranking. Think I will have my work cut out for me this week but fingers crossed I give you a run for your money. You have got me every time so far this year.

Russty_

Sorry about that mate haha, I am having a bit of a charmed year (82% wins so far) I’m sure it’ll be close as I’m not making any big moves this week and will have a few rooks on the field.

Kat

Dont be sorry, ejoy your success. I am in a bit of a dilemma this week re trades. Need to start winning a few matches so I can finish top 8 in my leagues but my rookies still have money to make or haven’t made much at all and really should just hold.

Russty_

Best way you can get to top 8 Kat is to have trades left towards the end to beef your scores up and ascend on the ladder. I think a lot of coaches are trying to finish their sides a bit too early and might fall away when they have no trades left. I went pretty hard early so that I have to abstain from trading for about 5 weeks total, already did 2 last 2 weeks so 3 to go.

Derek

MID-SEASON DRAFT

I’m running a Mid-season Draft again this year.

I don’t know how to re-start last years, so I’ve had to set one up from scratch.

Mid Season Draft – Code 786184

8 teams

4/5/1/4 (5 bench)

Starting Round 15, Play everyone ONCE.

Top 4 finals (2 week finals – round 22 & 23)

*****WINNER TO RECIEVE A SUPERCOACH CHAMPIONSHIP RING******

Priority goes to those who were in it last year (NDD, do you remember ?)

Please reply if you want to join.

DRAFT NIGHT – 8PM, 20/6/22.

If you are playing, make sure you can be there for Draft night, makes it hard to be competitive relying on automatic picks.

thanks fellas

demonsdelight

joined Derek It’s the only league I didn’t keep records on Great chance to win something for the alsorans NDD

Derek

do you know if there is a JR code to use to get the ring? i have my eye on it

demonsdelight

Lek will let us know I think it was Jock Reynolds from memoryWho played off last year was it us ?

Shake n bake

I’ve joined

Derek

great Shake. Its much easier to draft midseason, we know who the players to target and who are playing well.

Shake n bake

Maybe!

gator59

All you need is Mills, Hill and the others that get the pill

gator59

I’m in Derek

demonsdelight

Shake is always tough so i am really happy i have someone easy

gator59

Derek is tough to beat old timer so bring your A game NDD

Derek

i do like my draft. Every player is a POD

gator59

And no stealing McCluggage like you did last year by hacking into my side

demonsdelight

All good no idea what your talking about but couple of aspros get to bed and watch the 2021 grand final Remember one of them probably not

TEAMJP

Hi Derek, never played draft – would love to have a crack! I don’t want to take someone’s spot though. Let me know if there is a spot available?
cheers
JP

Derek

Join up JP. I can always make it a 10 team if needed.

do a few mock drafts if you can, get the feeling for how it works. Being there on draft night is really important, depending on what other players are doing and who they are drafting will effect who you get.

draft order is usually done random (i might think of a better way before draft night)

TEAMJP

Cool – thanks Derek, I’m in!!

demonsdelight

May out of dees side boozy nite

Derek

May has been missing the last 6 quarters. Melbourne have lost the last 6 quarters. A coincidence?

David C

May has a colourful history with alcohol going right back to his Suns days in 2014. On an end of season trip to the US Campbell Brown broke his jaw. It ended Brown’s career and the whole story was never revealed as Brown was paid out his contract by the Suns.

demonsdelight

unfortunately he picked the wrong one again ,however they are the best of friends and thankfully there will be no line in the sand taking sides thing happening.. The club will offer the owner a better apology and pay for the damages to the property Melksham is purely a depth player and will be delisted , one would think , but May should keep his opinions to himself .

Russty_

With what May said to Melksham if they were mates It sounds like he was just taking the pish but I wasn’t there, maybe Melksham is a bit sensitive about the subject and had a few too many and is a bit of an angry boy? or…May wasn’t joking and was being nasty about the fact that Jake missed out on the GF side.
Either way it should never have come to blows in a Restaurant.

demonsdelight

Apparently according to Gawn that’s false it was more that he was selfish trying to get to 200 denying Turner and Laurie a game .Bye the way Turner could come in but give him a miss — out when May is back I think you are right Russt they are mates and it just got worse Happens with booze That jud clarke is quick and good I had him in my first team may take Rioli’s place Keep it going mate cheering for you

Russty_

Oh cheers mate I’m just playing week to week, no expectations, might struggle a bit this week, could have 3 potential rookies getting dropped, so that wasn’t in the plans. Hate to waste trades replacing dropped rookies with new rookies who will also be dropped lol

demonsdelight

Melksham is a former golden gloves boxer who is regarded as the afl’s best boxer by a long way and he didn’t play in melbournes premiership last year and that says it all.Ideal for Collingwood just hoping Max can glue it all together far from over this

trev

Melksham may have floored May with one punch but surely won’t get to 200 There are young players there such as Turner and Laurie that must be given a chance in front of him. Both have good form .

demonsdelight

played his 200 against freo
