Agree. And it happens often. So and so, is playing weak team sometimes means they dominate, sometimes means they don't have to play at their peak. It's a bit of a raffle. I hoped he went huge, but I wasn't surprised when he didn't.
Gawn, Petracca and Oliver to combine for 1000 points between RD9 and RD10 ;):unsure:

Some random thoughts:

Hately no SC relevance but has worked his way into the game well and worked very hard in bith directions, hope he gets a sustained run.

Held off on Berry > Oliver this week to have the option Macrae / Oliver next week and it will likely cost me all cash leagues

> Percentage play is to just maintain upgrade cadence, on balance

Docherty one of those really good stories in footy, good to see a decent bloke get some success and continuity after what he’s been through.

Had written Tex Walker off completely two years ago, but his late career revival has been ultra-impressive.

Jordan Dawson: I think I love you 😍

Hope your rounds are going well 👌

Remember that most were setting their expectations at around 150 or 160 minimum and heavily considering risking a 144 since Neale going massive was a sure thing and it was highly improbable he would score 123.
Then the fail is with peoples expectations, not Neale. Not sure why people were getting such crazy expectations. The greats like Neale are great because they play their best when their team needs it, not against the easy beats.

Correct. The game is far more enjoyable when expectations are tempered.
