    It should be relatively easy to get a full team on the field in the Rd 13 bye.
    16 & 19 are a bit trickier.

    Round 16 is the problematic round for me atm.
    Round 13 is pretty easy to put a team together for, just make sure you trade with purpose over the next few weeks.
    I'm having to forego some cash cow targets in light of more appropriate bye targets.

    Do we think they get their act together and put in all of the updates today to enable a quick lockout tomorrow night?

    24 points owed to me, would be nice to see that added on.

    NRL should of taken a game off somewhere else and put it on tonight.

    The rise of Sipley has come at an opportune time with the suspension of Haas, I should be able to get him in as well as one of Teddy/Manu later this week

Add to that I'm going to be 1 or 2k either way on making the trade I want and all I can say is roll on Wednesday morning.

    As in 1 or 2k under ?

    I gave up worrying about updates etc. last year and it's been pretty refreshing. I figure it doesn't really make a significant difference anyway (with the exception of close H2H matches) with everyone impacted to various degrees.

    Also gave up looking at live scoring while the matches are on and found that you enjoy it heaps more when you aren't counting TB's and arguing about whether Billy McFuck deserved a TS or not.

    Probably not for everyone but given that you don't have any control over what happens you might as well enjoy the footy.

    Started the round off not too bad at 608/12c, but a few fires starting to appear now. Turbo is a must trade next week. Was hoping to hold Uto/Carty a bit longer but that's going to be tough. Haas out means I need a MID or I'm playing Couchman, and trading Uto means I need 2 of the bastards.

    Have 3 Storm players, so thinking I need to trade 1-2 of them now, ideally to a MID that plays round 13 and it's pretty slim pickings:

    JDB - probably the best potential but trash human that I don't want near my team.
    Lawrie - Priced at his average. Has a low score in him but could do worse.

    Ale - Already have 2 warriors and don't really want a 3rd before their bye in R12, but like watching him play and think there's a decent chance he holds his spot over Bunty when Barnett comes back in. That's the only threat to his spot, right? Would cause me MID issues during their bye though.
    Tohu/Jazz - Too much $ to carry through their bye.

    Tapine - Always thought I'd get him pre R13, but don't think it's time yet.
    Horse - I think he's my preference of this bunch. Ricky scares me, but he's looked good the last 2 weeks. Can see 70 mins continuing for a ~50 average at much cheaper than Tapine.

    Cheese - No R13, but think he's reasonably likely to average ~40 with the minutes he's getting lately.

    Anyone else you guys would be considering?

    I find it funny that if Latrell was playing like Turbo has been recently, people would be fucking ripping the shit out of him.

    Yeah, I agree with this approach, but I still think Billy needs to get his TS
    Also Bula had a beautiful escape from in goal which didn't get awarded Shocked

    I still get frustrated when one of my players is part of a dissallowed try (DFifita try assist this round) or gets dudded by a team mate, I'm looking at you Robert Mad

    100% Robert Jennings plays Fantasy and his H2H matchup owned the Hammer.

    I can`t remember the last time I saw a player that just didn`t want to score.

    Uncle Wayne will have him running laps after that one.

    I have a 174 point lead in my H2H grudge match in my cash league this weekend. he has Grant, Munster and SJ to my Loiero along our unique players left. It is going to be tight I think. I though I had it won when he played Host but playing Turbo cancelled it out a bit.

    EDIT: he has Bird as well, I might be done.

    Yeah but huge difference as to why .. one is attitude or is he up for it, the other clearly hindered physically.
