Continuing to tumble - hmm.
Down to 8.4k overall.
Down to 8.4k overall.
You could go gangbusters throughout the bye period and catch up quickly.
Martin and Whitfield this week and then then 4/4/4 route is worth considering, I reckon.
After tumbling 7,500 spots last week .....thought Preuss out would help me recover some ranking to launch 2nd half of the season LOL
It was my midfield that caused the stumble .....it is the midfield that yet again, is an anchor holding back my destiny
Touk Touk Cripps Neale Macrae Laird .....I can put any "cheap" player on field to get these scores, you keep churning out ....you putrid excuses for SC Players !!
Neale (C) and Gawn in a week I needed to capitalise on Preuss out ......what a disaster !!!!!!
Witts is now more expensive than Gawn .....WTF !!

Kelly, Curtis, Baldwin and CMac are killing you, as is having to field Martin, McCartin AND Rioli. You'll likely have to trade SDK and McCartin at this rate, too and find rookies to sustain you - Stephens and Wehr could find a nice juicy JS role over the next little while, they have both shown plenty with limited exposure. Cleary looks good, but JS awful, with Duryea almost ready.Akin to my performance on the weekend, with 4 of my past 5 weeks being putrid.
8 premos in total - Doc/Brayshaw/Gawn/Touk/Cripps/Neale/Macrae/Laird all failed for me.
Every time I bring in a premo instead of improving, my team seems to get shitter, super frustrating and makes absolutely no sense. This week I brought in Laird as a replacement for Steele, who is probably the most reliable and consistent MID on offer - and he somehow scores like shite the week I bring him in?! Thankfully my other new recruit in Sinclair (replacement for Whitfield) managed a decent score.
Oh, and I can't forget Butters who I held up until 2 weeks ago and persisted with, yet scores back to back tons the week after I trade him. This season can seriously get in the bin.
Meanwhile someone in my league has a team full of midpricers and is ranked just outside of the Top 1k.
17 trades and 4 upgrades to go, and yet my team is scoring like I have 10+ upgrades to go. I'll bring in another in Parker this week, and no doubt my team will find a way to s**t the bed. How hard is it for all of my premos to fire off in one week?

Putting the silly stuff aside for a sec, I feel your pain. (Post side if you like, never hurts to have another set of eyes run over the lineup.)gutsroy your eternal optimism is unequalled on this board, and I think this is one of the qualities of your character that we all hold most dear.
It's also occasionally unwarranted and as much as I wish that a "good old-fashioned care bear stare" could fix my team, those rays of love offer as much hope as Andrew Bolt trying to reimagine reality in a world that despises Andrew Bolt.
I love you brother, but we're going to let this one go, okay? No shame.
