Predicted Subs With SUB-MARINE

Last week I, the Marine got off to a flying start, infiltrating enemy lines and picking off subs at will. As the weekend went on, I found myself fatiguing and caught in some crossfire, leaving with a disappointing 6 for. So this week I’m bringing in the heavy artillery.

Last week I, the Marine got off to a flying start, infiltrating enemy lines and picking off subs at will. As the weekend went on, I found myself fatiguing and caught in some crossfire, leaving with a disappointing 6 for. This week my most relevant benching is Clay Smith, who plays the Tigers and given his high scoring rate per minute, looks a better option on the ground than many of the GWS boys vs West Coast. Personally I want him on my ground this week over Sheil, but Clay has been vested in 100% of games so far with 50% game time. Last week the Dogs named Dickson (Green) last on the bench, this week that spot was saved for Smithy.

    As probably the only person to not trade him in this week, Im secretly hoping Milera stays on the bench forever!

    • Garry's Boardshorts

      April 13, 2012 at 11:15 am

      I doubt most ppl would get Milera! He is this years T Lynch and we all know it!

    Here’s a question for you sub-marine, what chance will duffeld be a sub. I’ve got ellis and bugg on the bench and i have a sneaking suspicion that duffeld will be shit whether hes sub or not, he may not even play!?!

    • The Seamen

      April 13, 2012 at 10:37 am

      Yea hes named but I have the same worry that he could be subbed. Also was thinking of trading milera in for smedts who has the better job security. I think milera due to a heap of Geelong players that are coming back?

    • monkeybumcheeks

      April 13, 2012 at 1:42 pm

      No chance mate, the vest is Mundys for sure just easing him back like Barlow.

      • The Seamen

        April 13, 2012 at 3:18 pm

        Yea I hope so

        • Jorn

          April 13, 2012 at 8:00 pm

          Thanks for your help guys, as for your choice @the seamen, pick whichever will make you the most cash, sorry that it wont be much help since lockout is already in affect but unfortunalty this is the earliest i could reply

    do you think smith is a definite sub even though its ace cordy 1st game this year, and if he is sub how many points is he likely to get.

    • RLGriffin

      April 13, 2012 at 1:10 pm

      Also, what numbers will win this weeks power ball?

    • giants

      April 13, 2012 at 2:00 pm

      I don’t think they’ll use Ayce as a sub, the sub vest is really more suited to smaller players who can come on and make an impact. Cordy would be more likely to get the red vest I think.

    Inclined to chose O’Brien over Harwood.

    • SlightHawk

      April 13, 2012 at 2:48 pm

      your mate Smedts not playing

      • giants

        April 13, 2012 at 4:33 pm

        I had a feeling that might happen when Guthrie was named in his spot in the back pocket.

    April 13, 2012 at 12:37 pm

    Curnow as the Carlton sub? Don’t you think it’s more likely that Lucas will be the sub?

  12. Hook

    April 13, 2012 at 12:40 pm

    I hope your right and Milera is the sub. I have stuck with Ledger and I really hope he gets a full game.

  13. Weegles

    April 13, 2012 at 12:54 pm

    Who should i put on the field?
    Defence: Bugg or Marty Clarke
    Midfield: Greene or shiel

    Thanks in advance.

    • MickyC

      April 13, 2012 at 1:42 pm

    April 13, 2012 at 1:10 pm

    Should be Marric for Richmond, not Maric ;)

    Mundy is a dead set certainty for the green (sorta like warmie then :P )

      i would be against bringing porpoise in at this stage. very injury prone. most people would be using him as a mid-price cash cow not a keeper as you can’t expect a full season from him. reconsider another rookie who’s worth less and will rise quicker rather than take a chance on bringing him in this week, him bumming his shoulder and you burning 2 trades on him. kennedy, smith, cameron, milera, hampton there are a plethora of options which will prove a better choice. rhys stanley and motlop are other options.

      i’d probably try to ride shaw out. maxy’s back this week so you should see a better score.

      • The Man

        April 13, 2012 at 3:31 pm

        Shaw has been playing on the wing so i actually think Maxwell being back would affect him much it depends if the opposition wants to keep tagging him

    • BOOMER

      April 13, 2012 at 3:04 pm

      He has a good point, you need to be nicer to your mum.

      April 13, 2012 at 3:22 pm

      hazza44 = chappo44 LOCKED!

    i’m pretty concerned about ledger being the sub again or getting subbed and shiel being underdone decisions decisions, jmac why did you have to be all big man on campus and get suspended you were on the committee god damn it.

  22. Stu

    April 13, 2012 at 2:19 pm

    Kind of in a 50/50 now with Parker. I was sure he’d get a nice run at it this week but now I’m not so sure.

    Fortunately I’m going to destroy my direct opponent , so I’m thinking I might just wait to see if he does get vested.

  23. Adam

    April 13, 2012 at 2:47 pm

    Clay Smith is playing the Tigers? Am I stoned, or is it everyone else?

    • giants

      April 13, 2012 at 4:35 pm

      Nice pick up Adam. Fact check fail on Sub Marine’s part.

  24. Ethan

    April 13, 2012 at 2:47 pm

    I reckon Djerkurra is a big chance to start sub..
    With Clay replacing him half way through the third.
    Smith 60 odd points

  25. Justin

    April 13, 2012 at 3:41 pm

    I think Milera has player well enough to avoid the vest. And Tape is a key defender he definitely won’t be vested, I’d say Aaron Hall in the box seat there.

  26. ozpokerpro

    April 13, 2012 at 6:23 pm

    SUB-MARINE lmao that’s funny , wonder what he speaks like???

  27. Justin

    April 13, 2012 at 6:26 pm

    Sinclair and Duigan the subs. 1/2 Roy.

  28. Corey

    April 13, 2012 at 6:47 pm

    Quickly change Curnow to Duigan, Roy. No-one will know aha
