Calvin’s Captains – Rd. 10
Welcome to Calvin’s Captains for Rd. 10. Here you will find the greatest advice in the land for picking you DT captain with stats you’ll only find here in pirate land. Oh man, do I have some crackers for you this week. So stop looking at my groovy picture there and check it out.
Montag-nah This Week
What a call… Montagna’s 151 last week was a great call by the Irish pirate and even better for those who followed my ‘tweet’ (@CalvinDT) and cashed in on him getting the most disposals paying $4.25. Anyway, stay clear of him this week as he plays the Dockers and with previous scores of 65 and 95 against them in 2010, and a poor record at Patersons Playground, it’s time to pass on old Monty again.
Boom Boom Boyd
Matthew Boyd managed 102 last week from 32d in a flogging out west. That’s a pretty good effort! He plays the Hawks this week and he loves it against them!! With previous scores of 121 and 154 in 2010 and 128 in 2009, Boyd will go boom boom this week. Boyd will lead from the front this week (as he tried last week) to try and keep the Doggies in 2011 season. He averages 120 at Etihad in his last 3 games there this year and will be awesome again this week. I’m tipping Boyd for 125 this week from 35d. “Why 35d?” you may ask. We’ll in his last 3 games against the Hawks, he has had exactly 35d in all his last 3 games. Now there’s a stat!
Judas Vs Geelong
Righteo, little harsh on the little master there but this game will be wicked for DT fans. Stay with me on this ok.. surely Geelong will win, and win with ease. This means that the Cats will feast on many DT points this week and this is why.
Let’s look at the last 2 games this year when the Suns lost. In Rd. 6 the Bombers beat them and in that game 8 Essendon players cracked the 100+ with the top 5 scorers averaging a huge 122pts each. In the Rd. 8 game against the Crows the story was very similar with 9 Crows cracking 100+ with their top 5 scorers averaging 127pts each! My point here is obvious… I have great stats and the Cats will score millions of points this week and will be awesome.
Take guys like Joel Selwood for example. He has averaged 122 in his last 3 games this year with a low of just 121 in his last 4. Then you can look at the likes of Chapman, Bartel and Stevie J, these guys will be awesome this week just to name a few. Trust me, it’s a dead set no brainer and if you like scoring DT points, listen to me. Clicking Joel as your captain this week is a mega super great call.
Don’t be a Doubter
Can you believe what I have been hearing this week?
Swan is past it… He’s not capable of the 120+ scores he used to get… He’s fat … He’s Warnie’s love child… He’s injured… Never clicking him captain again…
You ungrateful, uneducated %#&kheads. Are you serious? Are you seriously doubting Dane Swan, the greatest DT player over the last few years because he has had a few poor games. Ok, maybe the days of ‘I just go Swan every week’ is out the window as there are great options every week and Swanny is after all human. But this slump is keeping my ‘captain selecting’ job security pretty safe. Doubters beware!!!
This week Swan plays the Eagles and if he is ever going to bounce back… it has to be this week! The Eagles are Swan’s favourite team to play when it comes to scoring DT points and with scores of 161, 158, 133, 158 coming in his last 4 games against them, you can now see why? During this period, Swan has averaged 37d a game on the Eagles and has a low of 99 in his last 7 games against them. In 2009, Swan had another form slump where he had 79 and a 97. The week after that he had 158 and amazingly enough it was against the Eagles. So as I said, doubters beware.
Ha ha right – I’m not a doubter, I just think that Selwood will score more. In fact, pencil Selwood in for something around the 140 mark. My top 3 will all crack the 125+ mark I believe and are up there with the safest bets for the year so far. Pendles and Chapman will be good too, but my top 3 there are going to be ridiculously good!
Good luck and I’ll see you back in here next week. Arrgggg
