PODCAST | Unscrewing The Lid, Just A Little Bit

Published by Lekdog on

The Boys are Back in Town, this town that requires boys to be in them, and back in it the boys certainly are.

Damo tried to work out how lids work, Patch forgets what a Brad Ebert is and how it works and Lek is once again tempted by several hundred mid-priced options when the sensible decision is right there – it’s RIGHT THERE, Lek, just take it. 

Who am I kidding, he doesn’t read these descriptions. 

The boys also discuss players coming off their byes, who to bring in as a downgrade and if we can bring in non-playing players yet.

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

Jrussell2

I’ll join the draft if there’s a spot!

Lek Could you leave a code for Derek to purchase my ring for winning his mid year draft Thanks Lek And such a great pod One of the best NDD

Derek

i secretly really want a ring, but couldn’t just get one without winning something. have to run my own draft league to win it.

best thing will be to wait to see who win it (if it isn’t me) and when i order it put the mailing address to the winner.

I think the code gets free delivery

Westy

If I make 4 trades this week, my team will look like this for Round 14 (with up to 20 available in Round 13 if Teakle me Elmo is included).
D – Sicily, Crisp, Hewitt, Sinclair, Short, McCartin (Wehr, Durdin)
M – Neale, Cripps, Walsh, Keays, Miller, Macrae, Oliver, Petracca (Clark, Owens, Carroll)
R – Gawn, Pruess (Teakle)
F – English, Dunkley, Brodie, Parker, Butters, Coniglio (Rosas, Butler).
It’s almost full premo (after a fashion). Would love to bring in Stewart for McCartin, but only have $120k on the bench. (The other option would be to bring in a Merrett instead of Walsh, and see how much extra that would bring in for next week after the bye).

Russty_

Nice looking side Westy, how many trades remaining if you do 4 this week?

Westy

9 left, which really brings it down to injury fixes after that.

Derek

Merrett offers too much value. Will help you get Stewart in a couple of weeks when his price drops.

Westy

Bringing in Merrett meant I only needed 3 trades to bring in Preuss and Merrett, but now Hayes has been cut and we don’t know yet if Preuss is going to play. Oh the humanity!

Lock key

could say it has plenty of merit

Lazza

Hayes and MRioli out … there’s two that might just screw my R13.

Russty_

Could do Rioli to Clarke I guess but that’s always risky, watched Judson’s highlights and he still looks like a boy. Looks like a good goalsneak but those types are real hit and miss with the scoring. Wonder if Hayes comes back in next week, read somewhere he was ill this week. If I could get one more week out of him next week, that’d be handy.

Lazza

3 more outs … now I can’t get 18.. gonna just sit it out .. save trades cos they’ll be hasty and short term ..

Russty_

I probably shouldn’t have but I got Judson in, I had Hayes, Rioli, McDonald and Carroll all out in one week. ..bloody nightmare, didn’t want to trade much, maybe Owens but his JS looks shaky with Hunter Clark and Billings ready to go, got him in anyway lol, also got Merrett so did 3 when I was planning to maybe do 1 or 2 with Wehr but I think Wehr might not make the 22.

Kat

You have the Midas touch Russty. Clarke going really well for you. And here I was thinking I may have had a chance against you haha

Russty_

He’ll probably do a M.Rioli and score a 7 next week Kat, are you gonna replace McDonald?…then you should get the win.

Kat

Trades depend on whether Wehr gets a game. McDonald may get the sub yet and who knows if he gets on then. Quite a few of my rookies now have questionable job security and McDonald seems to have a week off every now and again and then is back in so has been handy although is not a big scorer. Waiting til tomorrow night to make final decision. Was hoping to do Wehr and Sinclair in but may have to go Gresham in forward line or maybe sit tight and fingers crossed.

Russty_

Re: McDonald I could’ve traded him or Maurice out but McDonald has been rather inconsistent and low scoring and was worth 30 grand more than Rioli and I think Rioli will get another chance, probably when Judson scores a 7 cause he “needs a rest” lol
I don’t like Wehr’s chances of getting a game this week but forgive me if I’m wrong…this week’s ins in defence for the Giants are Haynes, Kennedy, Stein and Whitfield! That’s 4 lads who may or may not be better than Wehr.

David C

Wow, some people trading out Dunkley … desperate times indeed.

Russty_

Sounds like a bit of a blockhead idea lol, think they’d be better off just taking the hit this week rather than trading out solid premos.

JR SURVIVOR CHAMPIONS DIVISION

the final eliminations occurred in round 11, therefore if you are still in a JR Survivor Division, that means you have SURVIVED to be part of the merger into the Champion of Champions Division

Eliminations will start from ROUND 15

Depending on how many teams get the memo and jump into the Champions Group will ultimately determine how many eliminations we have each week until there are the FINAL 4 remaining for the Grand Final in Round 23.

thanks fellas

Russty_

Thanks Derek, good luck to all!…Jeez there’s a few in there haha

demonsdelight

Wasn’t Fugg nuggles DIon.s team HEDski?

Russty_

Yep mate it is, wonder why he didn’t post this year or let us know about the Draft side.

Shake n bake

When l think about it, he would have let us know at least once I’m sure. To me something just doesn’t seem right. But hopefully I’m wrong

Russty_

Maybe it’s a bit like Holty’s situation, he’s just too busy to do it coz of work or whatever and or maybe one of his kids is doing it under his name but doesn’t care about posting here.

Derek

Never to busy to attend to SC. Just need to cross out a few hours every day in my diary only challenge I have is who to charge the time to

demonsdelight

IN Lek’s words ‘he’s a beautiful human being’ and I miss his posts just like Pieman The General and lately David SS even though he doesn’t rate Gawn or Stewart
