Round Review

Here piggy piggy: Round 14 Review

Roy and Warnie went against Calvin and went with Swanny as their #1 captain choice… ultimately, that is what cost Calvin the Green Vest! Anyway… how good is it to be a Dream Team coach this weekend? Thumping scores, full squads… and not too much carnage! With a lot of coaches well over 2300 for the round, it’s definitely one for Fantasy Pigs!

Before you start preparing for next week, it’s time to review your squad’s effort this weekend in the DT TALK Round Review. Every Sunday night when the last game finishes, jump on here and let the world know how you went!

Copy and paste the following in the comments and fill it in.

        Ok then dip shit.. 2513 ablett as captain. Interested to know if that cost weekly prize

        • Uncle Fester

          July 1, 2012 at 8:41 pm

          doubt it. Surely someone will get 2600+. Wouldn’t be surprised with higher.

          Man no need to call someone a dip shit over a game…Point is we are human your not going to get EVERY decision right.

          Obviously you got a lot of decisions right to get the score you got. Don’t stress, you played well

  5. leetrevor81

    July 1, 2012 at 8:40 pm

    Team Name: Leeroy’s Team
    Round 14 Score: 2029
    League Results: WL
    Eliminator Status: Out a long time ago
    DT Studs: Porps, Smedts (compared to thier normal) Martin, Swan, Lids, Franklin, Beams, Sam Gibson (on the bench, may be considered as my 6th mid ahead of Van Berlo)
    DT Duds: Van Berlo (8, concussed) S Shaw (29) There are no more CLEAR duds, just lots of premiums scoring 20 odd points lower than they should

    Trades this week: Orren to Campbell, then Darley to Carrazzo (I’ll either have only just enough money or be a couple hundred dollars short…fingers crossed!)


    Bad week compared to everyone else. Pendles out, Chapman out, Van Berlo 8 and out concussed…Van Berlo hasn’t been the best selection, but he averaged 120 in his last 5 last year so I thought he might be a good unique pick. Sam Gibson may get a spot ahead of him, although it is risky making him my 6th mid based on one score so I may see if he can do it two weeks in a row first.

    If I can’t afford Carrazzo this week I will be quite dissapointed….I nearly got in Hanley instead of waiting for Carrazzo, and Hanley got a big ton. So if I can’t afford Carrazzo, I can’t even go Hanley cause Hanley’s price will rise and make him also out of reach

    Despite the poor score big positives are Porps form, which gives me depth as an 8th forward. Smedts looked good from what I saw, and if he gets another full game and plays well his job security might be quite good to add even more depth to my forward line.
    If Gibson can average around 90 for the rest of the year that also gives me good depth for the year.

    Next week if all goes well I have Pendles back, Chapman back and Carrazzo on the field instead of Sam Shaw. So if all goes well I should be up there with all the big scores…I hope

    Thinking about trading Giles to Pyke, then upgrading to another gun.


    • leetrevor81

      July 1, 2012 at 8:54 pm

      How about downgrading one of your rookie ruckmans that aren’t getting a game such as Orren Stephenson or Jarrad Redden to Tom Campbell from the bulldogs, then using THAT money to upgrade a mid

      Do you think Pyke is going to average 80+ for the rest of the year and play every game?

    DT Studs: 15 players over 100 (plus Gibson on the bench), plus a 99 and 98.

    DT Duds: Zorko, Heppell, Goddard, Dangerfield (although their scores weren’t terrible)

    On the Chopping Block: Team pretty much finished, so will hold

    Trades this week: None this week, only four trades left.

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: My best score. Ranked 9th for the week, which was great to see my team in the rankings list. Would love to upgrade Giles and get one more premo forward to use Zorko as backup but trades are too low. Will save them for the carnage. Only 50 odd points off the highest score for the week!
