Anyone got a screenshot of winners start side?
I don't but this article is interesting.

Some cliffs:

“I wanted to save as many trades as I could at the start of the year, that was the main plan.”

And the plan paid off with Cook having two trades up his sleeve heading into the final round, turning Bulldog Toby McLean (66) into Geelong’s Tom Hawkins (144).

“I got Jack Macrae in after he came back from his hammy, I got (Lance) Franklin in and he came good and I got Lachie Neale in for the last three rounds and I think he pumped out three 130s.

But Cook believed it was dodging early season injuries and poor form of premiums was crucial to his success.

“I think it was more the ones I didn’t have, I didn’t have the Jack Billings or the Hibberds,” he said.

Is there anyone here who finished top1k that started with both Hibberd and Billings? :think:
I didn’t start with Hibberd.

However I did start with Billings, Petracca, Corey Ellis and Corey Maynard.

The winner must have saved a heap of trades along the way if he still had two left going into the final round.

You would have been filthy with that decision! It was completely absurd
Yep but I checked out of the AFL ages ago.
Doesn't effect me or our flag chances much. Just makes it all the more sweeter when we win it.

Im mostly just here for the puppies, melts, lols and of course SC

December I think.

If you bought SC Gold then you will have early access to the team picker in December as well. :moustache::thumbsu:

I am suffering withdrawal symptoms from not trading. :eek:

Feel like a druggie needing his next hit. LOL! :p:thumbsu:

Same. It's been only a few weeks since SC finished and I'm missing this forum already. :(

So anyways I had an idea the other day. Based on the SC Finals format from a few years ago

Grand Final SC
Choose 11 players from the two competing GF teams
NO salary cap!

DEF, DEF, DEF
MID, MID, MID, MID
RUC
FWD, FWD, FWD

(positions as per 2018 SC)

Capt score x 3
VC score x 2

Do NOT post your selected team here. (I don't trust you kents to not cheat by editing your posts)

PM your selected players to me AFTER GF teams are named on the Thursday

Highest score wins this cool trophy. So who want to play? :moustache:
(I'll start a new fred if there's enough interest)
