Oh, Jesus: Finals Week 1 Review

There wouldn’t have been too many DT Talk readers willing to chair Gary Ablett off the ground on Saturday night. He managed just 64 points and put a dent in the scores for many of us who backed him in as captain.


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

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: have climbed 600 positions in last 6 weeks up to 413 overall, had some luck on the way but don’t see why so many people are complaining that it can’t be done.

    League Results: LWW
    Finals Positions: out of main ($$) comp lost by 11 pts because of Bartel, in semis in other two

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Gutted. Another season wasted. Working on my EPL Dream Team now, anyone wants to join my league the id code is 922417.

    Team Name: Peyton’s Place
    Round 20 Score:2,172
    League Results: WWW
    Finals Positions: 3xPrelims
    Eliminator Status: out in Round 9
    DT Studs: J.Selwood, Goddard, Hibberd, Rocky, Ricky Hendo
    DT Duds: Ablett of course, Bartel, Gibbs, Mundy, Cloke, JJK, Leuey, Heater (bench)
    On the Chopping Block: JJK to Mayne, Heater to Ellis
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Thankfully all my opponents also had Ablett as Captain! Have next week off to play around with team a bit. Mayne’s 3 and 5 round form hard to ignore with an easy run home and JJK’s corresponding tough run. Heater was always short term and it’s he out to Ellis or Scotland, likely the former. Plenty of cash so well set up for leagues, shame about leaving overall run way to late to be respectable. Aiming now for top 15,000 by years end since I’m rising about 3K every week.

    On the Chopping Block: Bartel and JJK are looking on the block. not sure if Kennedy can sustain his form
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: I had a tough game finishing 4th and playing top spot. we only had 5PODs between us (3 backmen) and all my PODs scored 90+ and Watson outscoring Beams at 120k cheaper was icing on the cake. Happy with Enright, Hendo, Hanley, Watson and Nroo.

    Why on earth is Jimmy Bartel scoring so poorly. I haven’t been seeing the cats games but can someone please answer me that! Also Gibbs is a dud… sick of him!
