Sucks more for Essendon, I’ve thought Fanta our most important player for a couple of years. I’ll happily lose in FF if we can get a win at the G.


#943

Both my Geelong players are late outs. Will remove any conflict while watching the game.


#944

All emergency adjustments made.


#945

Best score for my team in ages!

Good to see Stef Martin finally back amongst the points.


#946

Well done @Come_Back_Hirdy too good. That Danger score sunk me bad.


#947

Was given an absolute football lesson this week by @The_Melkman

Well played sir.


#948

Finally!

Yeah, I was very lucky with Dangerfield being hampered and a few of your other guns being well down on their averages. Would have preferred that Danger’s injury had helped Essendon get over the line but I’ll take this win


#949

Too good, @Birch19 . Well done mate.


#950

Cheers mate. Going to have to do something about that forward line though.

Some absolute cracking matchups this weekend. Any number of the matches could have taken the Match of the Round billing. One of @fogdog or @Maxx will break their BBFFL#2 duck this weekend.

For those that may be concerned about the progress of my team this season and my efforts or contribution to the league, I can assure you all I am going above and beyond to make this team competitive.

Some perspective…

I currently have 16 players out of the 32 on my list unavailable to play this week. Of the 16 that were named, two of them are on the extended bench. I potentially will play 4 short.

It’s round 8 and I’ve already made 14 changes through FA, which I’m guessing is close to a record.

The problem in this league which unless you’re a cellar dweller you wouldn’t appreciate, is that each week you can only top up with 40-50 averaging spuds. This is because anyone that comes onto the market that is half decent gets snapped up by a coach that doesn’t regularly utilize FA cause they’re side doesn’t need it!!

Now I’m in a position where I have to consider dropping a keeper, or potential future FF gun to pick up one of the leftover fodder that will improve my side by 35 points.

I don’t enjoy losing, but I wouldn’t imagine many sides would win without all of:

Tom Mitchell
Taylor Adams
Sam Jacobs
Alex Rance
Lance Franklin
Richard Douglas
Jack Riewoldt
Tom Jonas
Tom Barrass
Aaron Young
Jarryd Roughead
Lachie Henderson

Then I have Mosquito and Golds who I believe will end up as FF gold one day.

Leaving me Lukas Webb as my only FA option to drop yet I brought him in a couple of weeks ago as he’s on the verge of a recall after dominating in the VFL.

More than willing for anyone to suggest how I could be doing a better job!


#958

Can’t speak for anyone else, but I wasn’t concerned in the slightest. Sometimes you just get screwed.


#959

Yep, pure bad luck , Fog.

At full strength, your list is more than competitive. And no one can cover for 50% of the list being unavailable. You won’t find any rumblings or disgruntled talk from other coaches about how you’re travelling, imo.


#960

Some game by oliver, balances out the monster Grundy game.


#961

Marchbank finally finds some scoring form and I leave him on the bench, lol.

Giving the Wez juggernaut a run for his money, though.
