    Round 6 trades: Grimes-Heppell/Gibbs, Hoff-Daisy, Stevenson/pittard/Heath-Vlaustium, Stanton-Premium
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: My score got me ranked 89,530 for the week and too 10,395 overall. 2 weeks ago i was ranked 1910 and very happy with my team, and before the backline carnage i had my 2 trades done and my team was looking very good but backline carnage happened. Everything that could happened did to me. Grimes,Stanton (C), The shit port rookies came up with this week. Hindsight is a beautiful thing and when i look back on this week it has probably defined my season. If i took a donut in the backline and kept heppell and not got birch and traded the hoff to stevie J i would of scored 50 more and made my team better. sorry for my rant but fmdt

      Kudos to all those who did trade Westhoff to Stevie J and took a donut. Most people tend to think cover donuts first and then worry about other stuff. I think with the Hoff->Johnson trade there was every reason to expect a $60k turnaround, which was definitely a viable option to for an expected 50pt loss.

      I didn’t have the Hoff so thankfully wasn’t a decision I had to make.

    DT Studs: Goddard, Shaw, O’Meara, Cox
    DT Duds: Hartlett, Terlich, Stevenson, Deledio, Franklin, Byrnes
    On the Chopping Block: 90% of the team
    Round 6 trades: Stevenson to Vlaustin & Hartlett back to Gibbs
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Drop overall ranking by 6k and f***ing Hartlett doesn’t even get his B/E of 44!!!!!!

    Team name: Westcoast Warriors
    Round 6 Score: 1787
    League Results: L L W W W
    DT Studs: Bartel, Pendelbury, O’Meara, Cox, Goddard
    DT Duds: Pretty much everyone else
    On the chopping block: Wines, Jacobs
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Horrible week, but we are all in the same boat. Trade plans are Wines to Hodge and Jaoobs to Stevie J using Cox as a DPP. Wines’s BE is 84, so I think his rise in DT is over. Hodge will serve me well in the future, I am confident of this. Hoping to get back to a 2100+ score this week.

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: I fortunately missed the majority of the backline carnage over the weekend, so I was able to post a decent score.

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Was stunned with defense carnage this weekend, but even more so to see my team had elevated 4,500 positions to 3,400 overall, despite not cracking the 2,000 point barrier.

      Oh, and should have mentioned Brandon Ellis… brought him in this weekend on a bit of a whim, and very happy with his 85 point return.

    Round 6 Score: 1957
    League Results: WWW
    DT Studs: Hibberd, Bartel, Scooter, Murphy.
    DT Duds: Port Adelaide X 4, and most of all Hartlett because I paid good money for him and he stunk.
    On the Chopping Block: Wait and see when teams come out, but Hoff obviously and need to upgrade Moloney too.
    Round 6 trades: At the last minute, I sideways traded Gibbs for Hibberd, and I upgraded Dwyer to Hartlett.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: A terrible week for most people given that my pathetic 1957 allowed me to stay in the Top 5 overall.

      Moloney’s BE is only 56, so he should go up so can hold this upgrade till next for say a Priddis….

    On the Chopping Block: Hoff for Daisy Thomas and upgrade Mullet to Dangerfield still thinking to hold Wines – high BE of 84, but wait till next week & upgrade him to Priddis
    Round 6 trades: Traded in Hartlett for Gibbs and Vlastuin for Pittard….would’ve been happy to take Gibbs’ 0 rather than seeing Hartlett not even reach his BE!!!
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: How good is the Jagermeister!!!

    Round 6 trades: Brought in Birchall for Gibbs (eesh) and Vlastuin for Pittard
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Did bad like many others, am hoping Hepp D is out for less time than Gibbs. Thinking I might go Monfries (i KNEW i shouldn’t have brought in that hack) to Black (NM) and upgrade Dwyer to Priddis.
