    Hahahah. Say the line Rob...

    More concerned at this point that people don't actually watch the games (or don't understand what they're watching).

    Dragons are bad, 5-15 is clearly bad, but they try hard and only 6 defeats are 13+.

    Not like we're getting blown away. There's no fantasy attacking bonanza every week. Ask the Garrick and DCE captainers two weeks ago.

    Not like Tigers get blown away most weeks either. Bulldogs feel like the sketchiest team if you want to believe in matchups. They've just managed to win more close ones.

    Or Roosters have the same number of 13+ defeats as Dragons. So Captain Milford.

    Didn't disappoint, one of the best ones yet

    Kiraz is in a horrible Dogs team, up against a rampaging Knights team, and Edwards is up against the team he scored 98 against last time (and they're even worse now). Not to mention Manly concede as many tries down their left as on the rest of the field combined.

    I bought Edwards in R7 for 734K since then he's lost 233K and averaged 42... Not really Elite fullback numbers... He can yeet himself out of my team!

    Now watch him score 120

    One trade left and have a sudden death game against a better team than mine so will have to trade Robson to someone at 600k or under. Have no idea who it will be but might have to be a boom or bust kind of player.

    One trade left and can straight swap Penis for Garrick (also have Hopgood so short for final round). Think I may have to pull the trigger or else I could be stuck money wise having a decent centre for the final round.

    I reckon you make that decision when you have to....what if one of your top tier guns go down?

    Fair points. I suppose I’d rather be a centre short than a genuine gun short

    I dunno, did you also watch SummerSlam over the weekend and mark out when LA Knight won the battle royal?

    Nah, ageing myself but more of a up-to-early-2000s  guy. Coliseum home videos (and any other tapes I could find)  and magazines, then the very early days of Pay TV and Internet with WWF v WCW at its peak

    Do occasionally watch some AEW on their YouTubes. WWE has too many cuts for this old man.

    The match btw is Bret Hart v Bob Backlind I quit match, WrestleMania XI. You can tell it’s that specific match because of the mic and the refs unusual shoes (because it was Roddy Piper)

    Is it worth watching? I've never watched the earlier stuff. First introduction for me was Undertaker, Stone Cold, HHH and that era. Only recently come back to it and really enjoying it.

    Agree with AEW being a good product though. MJF and Adam Cole are an incredible combo.

    Not gonna lie, Matterson sucked during the late Origin period but I'm almost glad he did now because not as many jumped on him, and with the Eels Rd 27 bye he's a tough one to grab unless you're H2H. Anyone else in that awkward to buy but great if you have them bracket? Marzhew comes to mind.

    Was on my radar for R19 but opted against it as didn't want both him and Hopgood out R27 knowing I'd be low or no trades

    Good buy if you have a lot of trades (which most don't)

    Can see the NRL getting to a point where they say ' Fuck it,  this high contact situation is beyond our capabilities, and just make a rule change to lower the point of contact.

    It won't totally eliminate the problem , but make it a bit easier for them.
