Wowee 138 post byes with a low of 116. Perfect timing for me as that’s when I brought him in.

He's been cheaper than his starting price all season.... so never really a bad time to buy him.... he was below $600k between rnd 7-14 in peak upgrade period, kinda disappointing as a Macrae starter... but loving the back to back 150s. I knew this was possible at any point in the season so glad not to worry about when it was going to happen and if I'd have the cash to get him in.

@BigRuss I think made the call he'd be recognised as best player in the AFL this season... it's not likely to happen this season but he is on track to nail the best mid in SC! Next stop operation Grundy!

Thanks for that @Connoisseur.
Cripps did score 126 Rd1 against RIC this year.
Hmmm, his stats are not exactly saying 'pick me'.

A nuisance for coaches contemplating giving Cripps the captaincy is that with his record against the Tigers and recent form he would be a better choice for a VC rather than a C due to his inability since Rd9 to score consistently with 5/9 below 100 and 2/9 120+.

With the severe weather approaching, I'm avoiding any wet weather games and choosing Marvel Stadium. With that said, Macrae to cop a tag this week, give Dunkley a spell. Dunkley into Fyfe, hoping I don't have to use Fyfe's score due to Steele tag.

Regarding wet weather games, RIC play in the wet very well, especially, recently in form, Dusty Martin. If you have Dusty, maybe worth some thought.

Thanks Bermi, no I don't have Dusty , but he is in great form atm. With the weather, you may get heaps of contested footy, but a few clangers too. So trying to avoid this round.

Anyone considering putting the VC on Oliver tomorrow? Weather's looking nasty meaning a ton of stoppages and a lot of clearances.

As an aside does SC scoring take the conditions into account - ie. lowering the bar a little on "effective" disposals and the distance required for a long kick to a contests?

I don't think so, but that usually takes care of itself in the case of all games eventually scaling to 3300 points. I remember one game years ago, before the scaling was done during the game and where the conditions were abysmal, where all the players finished the game below 90 (because of such a poor quality disposal game), but then scaling happened and there were a couple of players in the 120s. So in a way, SC scoring does take the conditions into account, but it's not a conscious effort by CD to 'give' more points. I don't know if that makes any sense or not, I feel like I'm rambling sweet nothings at this point :ROFLMAO:
