    LOL I'm not sure how I feel about this sheep thing. I mean, winning it means that you're the most generic poster in the group....

    Just on Radley playing up on that flight imo he thought ok the nrl phucked me over so I'm going phuck  the nrl over by creating bad press for the nrl. Fair enough he may not of thought this but this is what I would do.

    I think it's more likely he's a loose cunt who does stupid shit. Not like it's the first time he's done dumb shit off the field.

    Will be keeping an eye on what happens with the Fri/Sat/Sun Sydney games.
    Already had one case turn up in VIC and one in NZ. Fair to say there's a good chance there'll be cases going to games if they're on with crowds.

I guess it’s a lesson that you’re always the one who should make the final decision.

    I'd like to let this go through the keeper (but I really can't)

    The forum hasn't made any decisions - the forum is simply a collection of players who have had varying levels of success.
    All players are capable of making good and bad decisions - that being said, there are a lot of knowledgeable players on here who have had sustained successful seasons on the basis of making more good decisions than bad.

    Trades like Averillo often need to be taken in context. Some players needed to trade in a Centre to field 17, I for instance had lost Lodge and someone else that week as well and was short a mid. I would've persevered with Averillo (the 29 the previous week wasn't that bad) but he looked the best option to trade. I'd suggest most teams that traded him were doing it in context rather than out of luxury.

    Most people on the forum advocated buying Turbo.
    Personally, I was anti trading in Turbo, largely due to his injury history, a perceived likelihood that he might be a slow starter returning back from multiple injuries, and he was only seven games from the Round 13 bye - so I felt with a 40-50 average he wouldn't return enough value to justify the trade.
    I stand by my reasoning in that first instance. The error for me, was that I didn't see his first few games for Manly - which likely would've given me reason to re-assess the original decision.
    It's often not always the first decision that is the error, but the failure to re-assess with new information - knowing when to stick solid vs when to realise you made an error of judgement.

    I think you can probably glean with the rest of those examples that there is usually legitimate reasoning behind any opinions expressed here, but no-one claims to be able to see the future, and any player can have a surprising and unexpected season.

    This is kind of the whole thing from my point of view. Good or bad decisions, getting every decision right in this game would need Nostradamus himself on the forum. You can gauge a lot of decisions on past performances, watching the games, stats, the eye test and gut feel, but at the end of the day, no one knows because we don't have a Stewie Griffin time machine, a car that goes through time once it hits 88mph or a phone booth that can also teleport us through time depending on what phone number you dial.

    We definitely are an echo chamber at times and it's showed when player percentages sometimes don't reflect the hype on here. We are all here cause we love the game and love shooting the breeze talking fantasy. No one ever puts a gun to anyones head and forces a trade and while I've been a victim in the past getting caught up in the hype when my gut tells me otherwise on a player, you can't blame anyone but yourself. As tiger says, a lot needs to be put into context. And a lot of hindsight might make some trades look bad, most of the time, reasonings behind the trade were still totally logical and valid. It sometimes just doesn't go your way.

    I didn't want anything to do with Turbo, and while hindsight says picking him up at 500K was a game changer, I still stand by my reasonings for skipping him. His game has upped itself with TB's, more attacking plays it seems and just more involvement. I didn't see any of that coming from his history.

    End of the day, there are players on here that are elite and are elite every year, and I wouldn't be playing fantasy at all if this forum didn't exist, true story.

    this 100%. When ever a group of people talk about a common interest there will always be some commonality. . If you look at rogues / RNGD, they were all off Teddy and all started with Latrell Mitchell. In saying this, i am sure if MTB posted his whole team people would 100% copy it.

    50+ average for the 5 rounds before he got dropped the first time - don't see this being a bad decision by any means

    As it stands today for those who know Sydney or have access to a map if you drew an arc from just east of Stadium Australia to south of the airport those people are essentially in lock down but we aren't using that word.

    Bulldogs game goes ahead ( just)
    Tigers game you wouldn't hold at Leichhardt
    Penrith remains unaffected

    In all reality with cases appearing in Parramatta over the last few days the next expansion would encompass Stadium Australia and Bluebet and it will be a race to get out.

    That's 120+ points more than Averillo managed over the same period (not to mention +124k).

    I'm not sure I'll ever regret starting with a guy that makes me that sort of money in 5 weeks. I regret Kevvy breaking him though...

    Most over rated centre in the game. Has 4 maybe 5 good games all year. 3 for QLD and 1-2 Australia.

    Lady at Coles said "we are not meant to supply masks to the public" when i kindly asked if I could have one of the blue standard masks from that box over there. As I had totally forgotten. I said ok ill go to Woollies, and on the way asked a lass in an ANZ bank and she was more than obliging to give me a mask! Bonza !
