Pretty over SC this week. It is a complete and utter crapshoot this year. Very difficult to try to balance for the big variations that are happening.

Laird last night is a good example - his score blew every other score in that game away, he played in a losing team... You have him then you get a big boost on others, you don't, well your week is closer to being screwed. In contrast, a poor score becomes very poor and means you get further behind from week to week.
Do agree but it was a pretty insane game Laird played to be fair. 139DT as well in a shortened game, if you adjust that for full game time I think it goes to 174DT

Yeah it's a tough slog atm, but tell me something that isn't in this Covid19 life we find ourselves caught up in. FFS all i want to do is go snowboarding and I can't really even leave the state let alone Country, sick of it!

I can hardly even leave the house with our restrictions here in Vic, so it could always be worse.

Chin up mate. There are people a lot worse off than you.......me for example.

I have Laird so I’ve got your back in quartets this week. You might need to have mine next week.

Thanks B2D. It has been a hell of a week for personal reasons (working 10 hour days at home while trying to look after two little kids) but a **** SC round and probably missing out on a bunch of league finals certainly hasn't helped my mood very much.

Was trading in Fyfe all day. Last 30 minutes my overthinking conspired to make me switch to Brayshaw. Theory was Fyfe probably gets rested at some point and likely gets stuck up forward for long periods. Watched Brayshaw closely lately and always seems to be around the ball. Also trying different things this year.

After 1st quarter looked a dunce
After 2nd quarter looked a genius
After 3rd quarter looked neutral
After 4th quarter I feel sick

This game always finds a way to whack you. Seems like Andy was on the bench most of the second half.

Yep, did the same trade and also got Haynes. Two sideways trades for 134 points, plus all the lost cash. Probably will only be up 80 odd points over playing Geo and Egg.

There isn't an emote that properly shows how I am feeling right now.

Sicly... After getting killed by opponents in Rounds 6-8 who all owned him. I traded him in as he looked a must have. He was avg 148 in those 3 rounds.... After trading in the spud, he avg's 78 for me in the next 3 games and goes and does his knee.

Sick of this bad luck, exact same thing happened with Fyfe... Kills it to start the season after the restart, looks a must have... I trade hm in and he does his hamstring the first game I have him.

Non stop injuries and bad luck for me this season.

oh well, you could be the man that finally got sick of waiting for NicNat to go up in value and did the always planned upgrade of NicNat to Gawn prior to Round 9…

Gawn goes 87, 107 and then misses 2 matches
NicNat goes 146, bye, 129 and 153

That's rough too mate. Certainly sucks doesn't it.

The moves look so good at the time, You look to really be improving your team... then it all backfires.

Nick Haynes

Sicily goes down so I trade him to Zwill who went 112, 105, 111 coming back from injury. He then scores 94, 70, 66 when Haynes scores 97, 96 and 139. Zwill misses and I use all my cash ($0 left) to trade him to Haynes, gaining 29 points by pushing Oscar McInerney's 65 out of best idea.

Then Zwill is back the week after and outscores Haynes 101-46 by 55 points.
