NAB Cup: Round 4 Live Chat

This is the most important round of the NAB Cup and NAB Challenge before the real stuff starts. No, not because it’s the Grand Final, but because it’s the last hit out for clubs ahead of Round One. Traditionally clubs play pretty close to their best 22. Chat up anything related to the games here!

This weekends NAB Cup and NAB Challenge games are the last practice matches for our Dream Team players before the real stuff starts in a fortnight.

Be on the lookout in the following games for what the teams end up being and who is missing out. Clubs will probably work with the new substitute rule in these games, so keep an eye on who might start off with the green vests on (and who spends a bit of time riding the pine).

If you’re getting to any games, write a bit of a review in the comments or shoot through an email (go to the contact page). Let us know who might suffer from TOG. That info helps for guys like Brett Deledio who was subbed off at half time last week. Taking that into consideration, his score of 49 was awesome!

I’ve been following the games on Twitter. The @FantasyFreako has given us a few scores throughout games. So stay tuned to him. We’ll be at the Hawks v Demons game tonight. I’ll try to tweet some stuff on our @DTTALK account. We are in a corporate box with free beer, so maybe that might be more important.

    Leon Davis, Yarran, and Robbie Gray (i didnt get burnt last year btw)

    • jb

      March 13, 2011 at 12:02 pm

      do u have knights ? nat fyfe is a good option at this price dpp aswell

  2. lions_23

    March 13, 2011 at 12:29 pm

    Stevie J or Shuan Higgins?

    • SD

      March 13, 2011 at 5:45 pm

      stevei j, been burnt by higgins the last 2 years

  3. J-eezy

    March 13, 2011 at 12:54 pm

    Mcglynn or Higgins.

    Cox and Jolly plus 77k or Cox plus Sandi with around 15k ( as I will dwongrade someone else)

    • sylvinator

      March 13, 2011 at 1:27 pm

      Jolly has never averaged above 85, and no reason to believe that suddenly after 11 years he’s going to.

      Jolly predicted average= 83
      Sandilands predicted average= 97

      That’s 15 points to game * 22= 330 points over the season.

      go Sandilands

      • TheAussieDigger

        March 14, 2011 at 11:08 am

        Last year after the pies used brown instead of fraser Jolly started averaging closer to 100 but is cheaper than that

    • Iamlegend

      March 13, 2011 at 2:03 pm

      what about ryder?

      he is the best young ruckmen in footy.

      he will keep improving, jolly, cox and sandi are at their peaks.

  4. mini freo

    March 13, 2011 at 1:31 pm

    For my 4th mid spot
    Fyfe, Cotchin, Plamer or Kennedy?????
    I like Fyfe because he is cheap and has DPP and will fill Mzungu’s DPP that i lost with his injury. But in saying that I want the highest scorer possible.

    • Iamlegend

      March 13, 2011 at 1:58 pm

      I have palmer in my 5th spot.

    • jb

      March 13, 2011 at 4:56 pm

      palmer i have him as my third mid

  5. swanlow36

    March 13, 2011 at 1:36 pm

    Hate the sub rule as it will affect Dream Team scoring in 2011.

    • richo_rocks

      March 13, 2011 at 1:46 pm

      well as long as it effects everyone equally it doesn’t really matter

      • Iamlegend

        March 13, 2011 at 6:03 pm

        and if youre players are good enough they won’t be subbed.

  6. afeElite

    March 13, 2011 at 1:44 pm

    Since the Mzungu injury it has thrown a lot of people and made them rethink their strucutre. From what I’ve read on the site, people are going with Swallow, Harris Krak and Hibberd or Heppell (usually one in the backline). And they are tossing up for expensive rookie mids:
    -Gaff, Polec and Conca
    Then they are tossing up between cheaper rookie mids:
    -Atley, Irons, Liberatore, Wallis and Bewick
    Am I right on this assumption? or I’m just analysing too much and its not correct haha?
    Also who are people going for as their expensive rookies (other than Swallow, Harris, Krak) and who are they going for as their cheaper rookies (other than Hibberd or Heppell).

    • SD

      March 13, 2011 at 5:49 pm

      all of those expensive/chaeper rookies mentioned i have

  11. Assasins

    March 13, 2011 at 5:55 pm

    Anyone else reckon that chap dog is too expensive?? should i get rid of him? i already have pav too but am thinking about buddy and or goodes

    • Benatration

      March 13, 2011 at 6:00 pm

      Chapman is injured anyway

    • Iamlegend

      March 13, 2011 at 6:00 pm

      no hes worth it as long as his injurys don’t stop him.

      • Assasins

        March 13, 2011 at 10:12 pm

        goodes or buddy or pav? …..gonna choose 2 out of these 3

  12. Warnie


    March 13, 2011 at 6:04 pm

    Apparently Luenberger has now gone down with a knee (know nothing more than that)…

    • Benatration

      March 13, 2011 at 6:08 pm

      His back in the huddle and doing some shuttle runs lads. Must have been just a knock. But from all reprts it looked serious!

      • Big Lance

        March 13, 2011 at 6:26 pm

        That would be great for Mitch Clark and Broc Mcauley, not great for the Luen obviously.

        • Iamlegend

          March 13, 2011 at 6:32 pm

          at least no one has him……….

          whats the score?

  13. SD

    March 13, 2011 at 6:24 pm

    sandilands/gamble or jolly/knights ?

  14. stray

    March 13, 2011 at 6:36 pm

    • Shaun Dawgs

      March 13, 2011 at 8:00 pm


  15. bingo bango

    March 13, 2011 at 8:32 pm

    Does anyone have any info why Prestia didn’t play? Also thoughts on whether he is in there best 22? Prestia now vital as only decent dpp fwd/mid rookie left!?!? (p.s. i dont rate Isaac Smith)

    GCS were thrashed today Iamlegend, and the possession count was really one sided in favour of the Lions.
    It makes you wonder how they will make any cash for us if the opposition has the ball all day. Getting a few of the senior blokes back in the defense will help.

    Toy and Coad looked lost today. Hunt was reading the play well and led Clarke to the ball more then once. He dropped off at the end after Stanley cleaned him up with friendly fire.

    Dixon was the pick of the forwards along with Matera who looked sharp

    The mids were well beaten all day with no one really standing out. They rotated a different bunch of players at every centre bounce it seemed. When Stanley went in he tagged someone every time. Lock got a fair bit of the ball in the 2nd half

    Warnie, Luenberger looked really sore with his knee

    Sam Day came off with his arm in a sling and it looked pretty bad

    Sam Isles was sitting right behind me so I asked him how he is going. He had a hip operation over Xmas and is still not quite right. He played in the 2’s yesterday but he reckons his back pulled up a bit sore. He is not playing next week, but reckons he will have another run the week after and is 50 / 50 for round 1

    McKenzie hurt his knee last week. Again hoping for round 1

    The trainers said they are hoping to get 12 games out of the younger blokes – maybe even a few more if they are holding up alright.

    Thats about all – I hope it helps


    • Iamlegend

      March 13, 2011 at 11:04 pm

      thanks for the report!

      I thought GC would have put up a better fight then that.

      you know your stuff!

      • Iamlegend

        March 13, 2011 at 11:06 pm

        lucky for you to be sitting behind Iles

  17. swazza

    March 13, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    f**kin mzungu. Is Issac Smith worth a bench spot??

  18. swazza

    March 13, 2011 at 8:53 pm

    Do many coaches here have charlie dixon. I feel like he is almost a look and load.

  19. grazza82

    March 14, 2011 at 2:48 am

    Whats yr thoughts guys?

    S.Tuck,A.Swallow,D.Thomas,K.Jack,Mundy,L.Anthony or a cheaper mid.

    I have 410,000 left for a mid

    I currently have Boyd,Boak,Montagna,Stanton,Simpson and on th bench :Pittard,Atley and Hibberd.

    Appreciate the opinions guys and gals :)

    • Jase123

      March 15, 2011 at 7:09 pm

      I would get Swallow or maybe Mundy…
      Good luck mate

  20. Jase123

    March 15, 2011 at 7:08 pm

    Hey guys,

    I got $105,000 left for a midfielder – for a substitute.
    Was wondering if Isaac Smith(Haw) , or Simpkin (Geel)?
    Or if there are any other suggestions….

    Looking forward to the season

  21. Jase123

    March 15, 2011 at 7:16 pm
