    When you’re 140 points up and your opponents only unique left is Crisp…

    Yep Crisp came out and scored 147. The fantasy curse strikes again

    Round 8 Scores: 2066
    League Results: Win
    Studs: Ronke, Smith, Macrae, Lloyd
    Duds: Mitchell, Gibbs, Merrett, Petracca
    On the Chopping Block: Petracca, Gibbs, Rookies
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Will look at doing a double upgrade this week as I have 490K in the bank and will look to get rid of Waterman and Petracca, to the likes of McLean, Menegola, Heeney, Gray. Will just depend on matchups and $$$

    Fortunate to have Macrae (C), Crisp and others who scored well. 2240 for the round.

      Gee that’s a good score Maggie. Should really jump up in the rankings big time.

      • Maggie

        May 13, 2018 at 6:12 pm

        Thanks David, Yes up to 2681 – pretty happy with that, seeing as I got off to a slow start …

      • St guns

        May 14, 2018 at 12:54 pm

    My score was too crappy to even mention. I’m going backwards in this competition.
    After the first round I just outside the top 300. Now I’m 11,000th.

    • St guns

      May 13, 2018 at 8:52 pm

        First round 20,000th – now 47,000th. Hold my beer.

    • Chatta

      May 13, 2018 at 9:05 pm

      Feel your pain as I was ranked 189 after round 1 as thought YESSSS for once I have nailed all the rookies (except Tim Kelly – soon traded him in) and picked all the right premo’s. Now ranked 9665 and headed south at a rapid rate :(

    • gf

      May 13, 2018 at 9:46 pm

      Cheers, fella’s. I feel your pain too. Next year for all of us, eh?

  11. Champion

    May 13, 2018 at 7:04 pm

    It’s actually unbeliable, first 6 rounds I was ranked about 500-2000, last week dropped to 7000 and this week I dropped another 8000 spots. My team is actually pretty good but I have been shafted by fantasy. My season’s gone it seems

    • lizard-of-oz

      May 13, 2018 at 8:08 pm

      I feel the same.
      Best start ever…downhill starting RD2.

        May 15, 2018 at 9:19 am

        First time in 4 years I’m not in the top 1000. Currently 24k +.

      Has been playing the Docherty loose back role in recent weeks so may not be a bad option.

    Duds: Savage, Titch
    On the Chopping Block: Naughton (through no fault of his own), Crowden
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Despite having 10 tons, none of them were high, with 8 of them between 100 and 111 (thanks Bont and Devon for your 117s). Not having Macrae is my main problem … that I do not intend to fix.

  14. Dazed

    May 13, 2018 at 7:33 pm

    Is this crazy?
    Banfield > Ainsworth
    Gibbs > Macrae

    • Chatta

      May 13, 2018 at 9:01 pm

      Yes – Ainsworth will only be there for a couple of weeks at best. Better to get Ed Phillips as he has better JS. Gibbs will average 110+ and possibly end up a top 10 mid so why would you trade him out??

    On the Chopping Block: few of the freo rookies.
    If only Titch wasnt my captain. Trying to bring in Mccrae. Jumped up 15000 places to be ranked about 8000 now.

    • David C

      May 14, 2018 at 8:57 am

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Getting very frustrated with a team that fluctuates between top 3000 and top 50k

  18. Gawn For A Quick Nank

    May 13, 2018 at 9:22 pm

    Tossed and turned between having stef martin or macrae before lockout, picked stef for a unique and got raped. 84 point turnover meant i scored 2085 instead of 2160. gutted. still moved up the rankings tho, now at 1800 (was at 3090)

    • David C

      May 14, 2018 at 9:01 am

      You would have only scored 42 more, not 84.

    Duds: TITCH DUSTY Zerrett & Acres
    On the Chopping Block: Might be time to upgrade Acres to a more solid premo i think
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: I didnt listen to the warning about Titch probably having a shit week this week & left the C on him.. Bringing in Zorko was a good move.

      May 14, 2018 at 4:56 pm

      Hey Andy,
      I heard from a pretty reliable source that you somehow cheated to get a win in Euman’s draft league on the weekend. Any truth to this?

    On the Chopping Block: Maxxed out rookies. 1 down, JOM up.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Round 8 Rank: 2792 jumped my team up 8000 places to 15000. Crikey.

    Studs: mcrae (c), yeo, zorko, cogs, stef, gawn, entire fwd line
    Duds: zerrett, seedsman, titch although his low score helped overall, banfield
    On the chopping block: barry and naughton to phillips and ronke via dpp
    Vent/brag/whatever: after round 1 was ranked 25k, improved every week now im at 1935 overall. Bringing in mcrae once mcrouch went down in round 2 has completely changed my season

  27. Euman


    May 14, 2018 at 1:48 pm

    is Macrae must have? i have under-performing mids, Martin, Merrett, Beams,Lyons, and dare i say it Titch even, as well as Billings – is it worth trading one of these to macae or just suck it up?

    • andyjh

      May 14, 2018 at 2:30 pm

      Euman, if u can get him in do it! I cant afford him atm.. wish i could

    On the Chopping Block: Looking at getting rid of Omeara and Banfield, most likely to Phillips and through Spargo DPP to Devon Smith or Robbo
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: pretty happy from going 1,400 to 699 in ranks
