AFL Dream Team Round 8 Discussion

We are locked and loaded for Round 8! You beauty! So, what trades have you decided on? Who is your captain? Make sure you chat about your team and the games over the weekend in the comments and stay up to date with the late withdrawals and the substitutes for the round.

Here we go for Round 8! It will be a massive round with the big one starting tonight with the Magpies v the Cats. The blockbuster at the ‘G will see only one team stay undefeated this season. My money is on Geelong, fingers crossed they get up! But Swanny racks up a few!

Let us know how you are going this week in the comments and any news we might need to know – such as late withdrawals and substitutes.

We will be tweeting all weekend, so make sure you follow @DTTALK, @WarnieDT, @CalvinDT and @RoyDT for all the latest.

Also, what trades have you done?

        what happend to him ?

        • Chartreuse

          May 15, 2011 at 3:12 pm

          Delids? Was tagged…starting to get a bit of it now though thankfully.

    GodDUD will be warming the bench next week if he is still in the team at all.

      It’s getting beyond a joke, right?

      I’ll suck it up and stick with him, but not because I’m happy!

        May 15, 2011 at 4:51 pm

        to all those ppl who said i was a retard for trading goddard for shaw you can suck shit cause goddard sucked again and shaw racked up another ton. Goddard has dropped over 100k in price. He once ‘was’ a gun but no longer ‘is’. Ppl work out the difference between the words was and is!!!

        • Chartreuse

          May 15, 2011 at 5:16 pm

          Great move…I should have done the same, but had to get rid of Broughton first who has SPUDDED it up even more. Both disasters that have fked up my DT this year, though the comfort with GodDUD is that just about every other team had him too.

      • DT Tragic

        May 15, 2011 at 5:51 pm

        I started with Pendles in my team instead of Swan as my C choice. With Swan smashing the first 3 rounds and Goddard doing sh*t I did the almighty out Goddard in Swan. The thinking was I would get Goddard back in when he bottomed out. He was looking to lose about 90k so it was as good as watching cows get fatter. Is it even worth it now that Goddard is doing SO sh*t?

  3. Benatration

    May 15, 2011 at 3:33 pm

    Gram will be so cheap in a few weeks! Once he gets back in form he could be a very hadny target in the backline

  4. The Fallen

    May 15, 2011 at 3:33 pm

    thanks Sam Mitchell, Goddard and Gram I could’ve just got your score through Gary Ablett you f*cking spuds!!

    brought hodge in this week happy there
    happy with all my hawks franklin,suckling,hodge
    my saints on the other hand……

    • jb

      May 15, 2011 at 3:57 pm

      problem with hodge is he going to be as good as say swan, pendles, selwood, boyd, ablett and watson ???? he does get tagged alot !!

      • Benatration

        May 15, 2011 at 4:01 pm

        yeah……he will probaley average mid 90s to early 100s from here on in. 105 average is the least you want from 6th mid. And Hodge has never averaged that in a season

      • stray

        May 15, 2011 at 4:01 pm

        i watched him last week could see he was coming back to his best and he was so cheap only cost me 50something k to upgrade curnow. pendles and watson(maybe someone else due to finals bye) over the next 2 maybe 3 weeks teams finally coming together

  8. TheAussieDigger

    May 15, 2011 at 3:50 pm

    Was initially down about Shaw doing well after not picking him. That was until Suckling did even better.

    Bloody Goddard…

  9. jb

    May 15, 2011 at 3:55 pm

    were hawks playing keepy off ? 11 tons compared to 1 ???? now breust looks like a good downgrade target too to make my life even more complicated !!! puopulo, smith, hibberd, lynch, jacobs and bruest all in the next 2 weeks.. i need to have 3 trades available a week not 2.. ATM my thinking is puopulo and smith this week, lynch and bruest next week than hibberd and jacobs week after.. dont really want to pay an extra 30 to 40 k for hibberd and jacobs but i want all 6 so it seems like the best plan of attack..

    • Gerryboy

      May 15, 2011 at 4:04 pm

      don’t be greedy!!

    • leetrevor81

      May 15, 2011 at 4:08 pm

      If half the team scores over 100 though, wouldn’t a 70 be the equivilant to a 40-50 in a lower scoring game?

      • Benatration

        May 15, 2011 at 4:16 pm

        Top 20 Hawks players (Only 22, these 2 got injured) averaged 98.35 DT points today!
        Top 16 Hawks players averaged 109.8 DT

        There’s gotta be a few records broken by that

  10. leetrevor81

    May 15, 2011 at 4:06 pm

    I nearly had a heart attatck when I saw my eliminator opponent was over 1700 and beating me by over 100 then checked and saw that he has no one playing in the last 2 games.

    Huge sigh of relief!

  11. Benatration

    May 15, 2011 at 4:21 pm

    Another shit week….another week were I wont crack 2000. Havent cracked that for weeks now!

    • Kuruki

      I feel your pain. It seemed oh so easy for the first month.

    May 15, 2011 at 4:34 pm

    BREAKING NEWS!!!!!!! DANIEL KERR OUT!!!!!!!!!!

    • Benatration

      May 15, 2011 at 4:44 pm

      Not as if anyone actually has Kerr tho so this effect no-one

      • leetrevor81

        May 15, 2011 at 5:05 pm

        I haven’t got him but in the comments a lot of people seemed to be interested in his good form. So a few may of traded him in this week.


    May 15, 2011 at 4:53 pm

    Didn’t watch the hawks game, but logged on to see my boy sammy mitch on 61. Because I saw hodge had a beauty, can i assume that my boy sammy mitch was tagged?

    • Brappinalong

      May 15, 2011 at 6:13 pm

      Correct,copped the hard Jones tag.

  14. jarrydg

    May 15, 2011 at 5:07 pm

    1676 from 18 played still have cox, fyfe and lower to go. But i put kerr in my team and he is a late change. fml
    Thinking of trading goddard his scores are very average.

  15. albertproudftw

    May 15, 2011 at 5:15 pm

    not sure whether im going very badly or my opponents r dominating… predicted 2049 currently on 1704/17 but there seems to be a few doing very well.. hopefully Rioli comes back next week need his points. Jono brown anyone? thinking might get him after he has played 3 rds so can have a look and most likely price drop from the 1st game

    cmon, tipped west coast!

    for last midfield spot would you go j.watson, j.selwood, s.mitchell

    for last forward spot would you go b.franklin or c.sylvia


    • Gerryboy

      May 15, 2011 at 5:40 pm

      Watson has the bye Rd 24 so will need to be traded, Geelong the bye in Rd 22 so if your team wins your first final and your in the top 4 you’ll get the bye the follwing week, Mitchell plays GC in Rd 24…..toss up between Selwood and Mitchell

    • Grazza

      May 15, 2011 at 7:33 pm

      I’d definitely be going Selwood. 4 out of 5 his last games over 120 and cheaper than Mitchell. Mitchell fell way short of his BE this week and his 61 today is going to see a big BE for the next few weeks. Should be a fair bit cheaper in 3 or 4 weeks while Selwood’s only going to be getting more expensive.

    May 15, 2011 at 6:07 pm

    1867 with Cox, Sandi, Fyfe, Pavlich, Darling and Lower still playing (half time)

    • Gerryboy

  26. rider
