Happy with 2274 considering Ellis spudded it up.

Great win by the Saints Scott. It reminded me of what they were like at their peak a few years ago, huge amounts of tackling pressure and hunger for the ball.

But with speed and quick movement of the ball. It's taken a few weeks for it to click but it finally has. Pretty excited to be honest, we have some genuine stars coming through.

I am making fat stacks from all my rookies apart from Ellis, a couple more weeks for them to reach their cliff and it is going to be a trade bonanza.

In one of my leagues where everybody except myself and another consistently score 2100+, most teams have around 10 players in common. IMO, that's fucking boring. Make your own team don't just pick the same stars as everybody else :\

Cloke, S Selwood, Robinson and Waite spudding it up this week hurt me lots

Although i'm just outside the eight in this league, i'm pretty happy with how my team's looking atm.

Sitting on my hands the next few weeks and saving trades for the bye round carnage.

Really liking the lack of zac dawson in my backline, lake and clark have turned out to be golden as cheap mid-pricers and will probably end up keepers (or really late trades). Bugg's probably close to hitting his ceiling, but smedts and ellis should continue to rise, especially if they can avoid the vest.

Magner/Shiel should be ripe to upgrade to a murphy/watson/jk3 before the bye, same goes for milera and kennedy in the forwards. Porps has been handy as a cheapie up front but hasn't been setting the world on fire of late - not a top trade priority yet though.

Anyone else get on taylor adams last week? Seemed to get lost in all the horsley fapping that was going on. Averaging 80+ as a forward. gold.

I already had Horsley, bought in Adams last week. Solid gold.

No, I honestly think it's lame. Obviously there's a bit incentive for people to use all those players, but it seems like they just built their teams based on the guides that were around, kind of as if they take it a bit too seriously. But I guess a lot of you are the same around here.

+1 on Adams. Doing nicely

I've traded out Ellis & Bugg this week for Thompson & Brennan. Will do a couple of upgrades next week and should nearly be set

No shit, but try and win using a team that you selected yourself rather than just using an all star team that somebody else picked based on stats.

That's why in high school sports you alternate who picks players so that you get balanced teams.

My goal was actually get get myself back into footy, which has worked. Couldn't care less if I win or lose (all the stuff I say in here is in jest, just to make some lols).

Derp the reason people here know who to pick (and more importantly who not to pick) isn't because we listen to the muppets at the herald sun. In my first year playing i made some horrible selections, you quickly realise that if your team consists of gumbleton, kepler bradley and daniel motlop you're going to have a bad time. Filling your team with sub par players will always give you sub par results...where's the fun in that? The reason people play this game is for the challenge of creating a better team than everyone else. You can't achieve this by simply subscribing to the herd mentality.

No two teams will be identical (i have no mathematical evidence for this). In the majority of matches i've played this year there have been more 'unique' players than those 'common to both teams'. Everyone has their own opinions of who will be the value for money / top line scorers at the start of the year. If I selected my team at the start of the year according to the 'experts' i'd have 100 players in my team and a salary cap resembling carlton circa 2000.

There are plenty of players who will score at the premium level. Selecting which one do this consistently at the cheapest possible price is the challenge. While past performances give some indication, no-one knows who the bolters and sliders of the competition will be. If you had told me at the start of the year stanton would be the highest supercoach scorer (by over 100) in the league after seven rounds, i'd have bronxed cheered you like an essendon supporter. The game is pretty much one risk/reward decision after another.

Another challenge is deciding which 'strategy' to use. Do you go with just a rookie-premium mix? Or fill your team with mid-price players you believe to be undervalued? Where do you spend your cash? Do you load up in the midfield and go thin in the backs and forwards? Two premium ruckmen or none?

The game's mix of strategy and luck is what makes it so enjoyable. Don't ignore the first, and hope like hell the second doesn't ignore you.

I agree 100% with your post mate. My initial point was that in that one league it seems like they all have the same 10 elites in common.

Your team must be unstoppable with your scintillating average of 1691 and Zac Dawson consistently averaging 57.

Stevie J. He's more likely to pull out a big score out of the two of them.

That said I wouldn't choose either of them

I've reversed my trades so I have a full team Ellis is staying but I've upgraded Bugg to Goddard instead of Thompson.... for now.
