nice score @redbull, mine, not so much.

I’m really not sure where the past 2 weeks have come from. But I’m very happy to take it. Fingers crossed it’s somewhat sustainable.

400+ points difference from last round to this round. That’s a fair swing. Probably due in large measure to our kids - Martin, NWM and Weddle all tonned up, but that obviously isn’t happening every week. We’re quite volatile.

Coleman got subbed out. Not sure what the issue was. We seem to be copping an injury or suspension every week, it’s just a constant shuffling of players.

If we can field a full strength side we can do some damage I think. Against anyone. But equally, there’s no guarantee we even make the 8 .

And I somehow need to reprogramme my brain to “The Bench-ish” , because every single week we make mistakes with the lineup, and can’t find the focus to look at FA’s.


About that, does anyone have any tips for using the bench to find FA? I find it a bloody slog. I filter to say R10, sort by score and go through, but yikes

I think there is a ‘Players’ tab where you can get a full list of every player per club. I look to see if they’re assigned to a team already. If not, they’re a FA…

I’ve been wrecked at the selection table. How tough are we being on the donut policy this season because figuring out who is available for selection and has been picked irl is an absolute pain in the arse tbh

I have three rucks playing this week, what is this sorcery?


okay, I see how you can use that. The stats page on the other hands…What am I missing here?

I was also taking a bit of interest in luke foley until I found out he was a middle aged politician:

Also, there is also some sort of automatic classifier in the descriptions but its well broken, and calls everyone “tacklers”, before reeling off some nonsense statistics. ChatGPT would do a better job.


Tested this:

This is the statistical averages of Zach Merrett, in the AFL (Australian Rules Football league):

0 1 16 12 4 6 0 1 1 6 3 4

He averages 16 kicks, 12 handballs etc. What sort of footballer would you classify him as?

ChatGPT Answer:

Based on the statistical averages you provided for Zach Merrett in the AFL, he can be classified as a midfielder.

Here’s a breakdown of the statistical categories:

  • Kicks: 16 average kicks per game indicate that he is actively involved in initiating plays by kicking the ball.
  • Handballs: 12 average handballs per game suggest that he also participates in distributing the ball through hand passes, which is common for midfielders.
  • Marks: 4 average marks per game imply that he is capable of catching the ball after it has been kicked by another player, showcasing his ability to position himself well and provide an option for his teammates.
  • Tackles: 6 average tackles per game demonstrate his defensive capabilities and willingness to apply pressure on opponents to regain possession.
  • Hitouts: 0 average hitouts per game suggest that he is not primarily involved in ruck contests, which are typically performed by taller players.
  • Frees For: 1 average free kick received per game indicates that he attracts fouls from opponents, possibly due to his skill and ability to draw fouls.
  • Frees Against: 1 average free kick conceded per game shows that he commits fouls himself, although this number is relatively low.
  • Inside 50s: 6 average inside 50s per game signify his involvement in delivering the ball into his team’s forward 50-meter area, which is crucial for creating scoring opportunities.
  • Rebound 50s: 3 average rebound 50s per game suggest that he is also involved in defensive actions to repel opposition attacks, showing his versatility.
  • Clearances: 4 average clearances per game imply his effectiveness in gaining possession of the ball and initiating his team’s attacks.
  • Clangers: 0 average clangers per game indicate that he makes minimal mistakes, such as turnovers or poor decision-making, highlighting his skill and composure.

Based on these statistics, Zach Merrett appears to be a well-rounded midfielder who excels in both offensive and defensive aspects of the game. He possesses good kicking and handballing skills, contributes defensively through tackles, and is involved in generating scoring opportunities as well as defensive efforts.


That’s awesome. Can you get a write up of how Team Bix is performing?
