It’s a very barren looking free agents pool.


#1043

Sure is. Unfortunately it means I play three short too.


#1044

I might have a mid or two available come trade time.


#1045

I was shocked that I was able to pick up a playing R just now.


#1046

I mulled the idea over myself. But it would have meant given up a player I rate more highly. It will be interesting to see how he goes.


#1047

Yeah I considered it, but rolled the dice on Preuss getting some games

Ouch


#1050

Was looking at my data today - you have lost the last 3 which equals your longest ever losing streak - think it’s 5 times you have done it now. So if @Aceman can get the job done he will help you set a new unwanted record.


#1051

Season fell in a heap so quickly!


#1052

The mere mention of matching the Bulls undefeated season was enough to send most of your squad into a scoring coma.


#1053

I’m done.


#1054

Daniel Wells rewarding me with drafting and keeping him until Round 10. 63 points in a quarter and half. I wonder how many points he has left in his season.


#1055

Oh no you didn’t… Wells off with a knee injury.


#1056

About 2 more points by the looks of things.


#1057

To be fair it was 4 more points.

Given its his knee I suspect its probably career done.


#1058

Clarke got a C because they made assumption fit their heat map evidence, even though the reality was different to what they assumed.

Obviously there was a bit of a buzz about Clarke’s job tagging Higgins so there is one game they know he’s played midfield. However his 4 games before being dropped were as a forward with midfield rotations…which actually works in his favour as UF only had him as a back, so the more possessions he gets in the F50 the better to prove he isn’t playing back…and given we know he played mid last round…then this data suddenly makes a lot of sense - he must’ve been playing midfield then too.

The greater distance between assumed position and assigned position makes things easier as there is less chance of getting pesky possessions in an area that will confuse them, which is only how I can assume they haven’t figured out that players who don’t receive any midfield rotations aren’t midfielders yet, despite having data from almost every single game to make a call from.


#1059

Jack Macrae is a shadow of his 2018 scoring self at the moment. Really need him to start pumping out 120 plus scores again.


#1060

Damn it’s nice to have Langford back in, played 5 games this year and only once been below 70. Given how crap most of my forwardline has been, he’s pretty much my messiah :P.

Caddy coming into some form doesn’t hurt either.


#1061

@cafegerat’s Carlton and St Kilda players turning it on and laying down a score to chase. Jarryd Lyons will have to play well to get the Bulls home.
