    • Samsa

      February 29, 2012 at 4:11 pm

      + Morabito for anyone who didn’t know.

    • eeepobreci

      February 29, 2012 at 4:17 pm

      Doesn’t matter, does it?
      Could be worth 50cents each, but not worth 2 trades tho!

  9. tkol

    February 29, 2012 at 4:33 pm

    The way the scoring is shown in that Freako letter is a crock!
    Absolutely discard it & wait for next week’s letter!

    • adzman

      exactley………… its just speculation!

        What compensation pick do you think Bastinac is worth TKOL? Hate north btw.

    • PurpleArmy

      February 29, 2012 at 8:15 pm

      Freako says he’s doing this all nab cup not just round 1 (says in the big speech bubble). Probably just gonna skip through it quickly now until the season starts :(

  10. mtooler

    February 29, 2012 at 4:37 pm

    Everyone ignore Freako lock in the porpoise, ignore Grimes injury too, he’ll be fine, lock him in. :)

    • Zan

      February 29, 2012 at 4:41 pm

      and lock J.brown, porp and deledio ;)

    Thanks Freako.

    Oh, and there are three spots left in DT Boak 661642.

    Looks like I’m not the only one to pick Arnot (RIC) to average 250 this year

    • HSVKing

      February 29, 2012 at 4:54 pm

      Hmmm I was thinking this. 7 minutes for 257 points, that’s unbelievable!

      Was wondering who #1 was, then realised it was a screw up.

      • giants

        February 29, 2012 at 6:17 pm

        It’s not a screw up. He scored 18 points in 7 minutes. If you extrapolate that to 100 minutes (like they did with every other player) you get a ridiculously inflated 257.

        Does that make it an accurate reflection of how he performed or how he’s set to go for the rest of the year? Of course not, just one of those strange statistical anomolies you get with a tiny sample size..

        • portetdaspet

          February 29, 2012 at 9:05 pm

          That is what the formula used here comes up with, but there is clearly a problem with the formula. Since when have we got extra points for players playing less minutes. The fact that He only played 7 minutes is a clear sign he’s no where near their best 22. It’s a bit disappointing that Freako uses such flawed calculations. It may improve with more games, but I’d Arnot doesn’t play again it’s going to be hard to knock him out of top spot. My number 1 on numbers: Z. Skinner.

          • giants

            February 29, 2012 at 9:35 pm

            @portetdaspet Yeah, I agree (posted the same thing later on in this thread). Hopefully they fix that, because it’s kinda useless as it is.

          • Magpie28

            February 29, 2012 at 11:52 pm

            You’re welcome to ignore it, but it’s hardly useless info… just make sure you compare apples with apples and not oranges.

            As always, love your work Freako!

      Sounds like another Pat Contin to me. Comes out and goes nuts in the NAB and then is never seen again.

    I love you Freako!

    Mummy or McEvoy? Tough call.

      McEvoy. Cox ahead of both though! EASILY…

    Jebus has returned with his bible.

    Lets see how many have you converted with those figures.

  17. giants

    February 29, 2012 at 6:18 pm

    I would’ve preferred they’d just put the raw scores up, rather than multiplying them to produce full game stats. They don’t translate properly.

    • Magpie28

      February 29, 2012 at 11:54 pm

      The AFL website has the actual scores if you want them. Freako has the points per minute scores if you want them. Freako’s simply catering to a different market.

    February 29, 2012 at 6:45 pm

    Freako you magnificent bastard!

    I always love this, yes the numbers are to be taken with a grain of salt for NAB, but for you newbies out there, treat this like gold.

    Being a stats man…it is close to my porn.

    Always an interesting read. So ticked off with Grimes injuring his shoulder, both as a DT fanatic and a Melbourne die hard :'(

  22. goatus_oqueef

    Wowsers! lock in Arnot!

    • Magpie28

      February 29, 2012 at 11:56 pm

      Let’s see if his % ownership goes up on the strength of Freako’s data ;)

    Arnot Schwarznegger!!!!!!!

    Hey guys any chance of an article profiing the best tacklers in the competition. Given that a tackle carries high points these players often present good value, like a Redden, for example.

    432520 if you like your games tight.

  24. Lenny

    February 29, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    Freako, as Rainman said, “you magnificent bastard!”. Always love reading your rave… stats… DT is a stats game. Pity the fool who doesn’t read it for consideration, especially from round 1.

    • Magpie28

    Thanks Freako…always appreciate the opening highlight and the player comments along with the stats.

    Jamar was not on my radar.

    Top work Freako as always, but I see a little Hawthorn influence in the Richmond Banner
