    My team has well and truly let me down this week.

    Knew I should have gone with my gut instead of looking at price tag.

    I haven't even checked my eliminator since finding out my opponent was our Russell Crowe.
    Heading for sometihng like 950 for the week if Surgess gets his average.

    Will be able to see the first half of the game tonight as well which will be nice.

    At 944... With S.Burgess to play. Like many, hoping for my first 1k of the year. 

    Gallen, James and Tedesco were disappointing. But Barba and Merrin were outstanding. Barba could have had 5 tries...

    Didn't get a chance to watch the dragons tigers yesterday. Any reason why jdb played 80? Injury related or just general dragons unpredictability? I noticed host didn't play, maybe that was a reason

    Yes but everyone already knows that NZ loves him, I have a Warriors jersey with Tamou's name taped over Hurrell's after he was thrown out.

    I am sure that if you went to a match in Auckland you would find alot of people do the same

    Yea since the replacement was on his debut and the Dragons were losing i guess he kept his best team on for as long as he could resulting in JDB playing 80 mins

    who did you pick bmoz over?

    I would like to add my 2c worth of saying it was a bad move







    I have Gordon in my team, no trades left for the year and ranked amongst the people who may have not logged in since round 12........ Cant touch this
    I traded Semi - Tedesco and Norman - Bmoz. Problem? I fail to see how that is a bad trade as that is all I can afford. Please explain?

    I did say whoever wins the Eliminator will have consistent high scores.

    Did you know Keisha Castle-Hughes was born in Australia?
    Gonna have to photoshop her out of Whale Rider. Maybe stick Tem Morrison's face over hers.

    I must of been drunk Saturday night. I somehow thought I was going to beat Panda H2H. He's going to monster me. He was even good enough to offer me an Avatar bet if Teddy beat his average.

    We all have regrets mate, it's how you react to them that matters.  Drop me a line if you need to talk.

    Yeah I thought you would be free of your QLD avatar after the Tigers game. Surprised Tedesco didnt score above his average vs the Dragons.

    What's the problem with Bmoz?
    He is a boom bust type player so will probably score 60 next week followed by another 20.
    Still averages at 40 in the end.

    I realize that the opposition doesn't play a huge part but it was the Cowboys in Townsville.
    Same thing I mentioned halves scoring poor when playing the sharks (They get targeted by Ennis/Lewis). Sometimes attacking players just don't score well against decent defence.

    Anyways all in hindsight now, could probably afford most WFB/CTR players in the game at 408k but
    sometimes you need to gamble on a player.

    My backs look like this, hindsight is to go Barba over Aitken but sometimes you don't get it right and it's a gamble. Keeps things interesting and still don't know how he fits into my side next week.

    Do you go Barba next week who relies entirely on attacking stats or a more 'reliable' player with great base stats (Fending + offloads)

    Leilua (68), JBird (63)
    Aitken (55) Munster (60) CWalker (?)

    NPR - Barba (74) Gutherson (46)

    End of the day you can't really bag someone out for making a trade or a decision, as long as they own it
