PIEMAN RESULTS round 22 v GWS

Only nine goals today. Normally that means we've been comprehensively flogged. Not today though. In a game that makes chess played by snail mail look exciting we somehow fell over the line and live to fight another week (or maybe just a few hours if Carlton win tonight).

The game did provide one footy first though. More of that below...

Carryover Teams and Pieman Substitutes

There were 23 carryover teams today but only three subs were required:
Jeff 1975 got Naughton (8) as sub for Bruce​
TedDougChris got Weightman (9) as sub for Garcia​
weltschmerz got Baz Smith (25) as sub for Bruce​

The KELVIN

This week I'm awarding a Gold Kelvin! 🥇

It goes to ScragCity for a perfect score. And no, I'm not scragging you, folks, it really was him. The maximum possible was 254 points for picking 3x Williams and 2x Dale and that's exactly what Scrag did. He more than doubled his nearest competitor. That was SayerTheCreator (121) and then dish licker (117) was in third spot.

Now before you all fall down to your knees in stunned adulation of this feat I should point out that Scrag took out that combination in Round 11 and he has let it carry over for the next 10 games. In that time it has earned him the following scores:
21268(bye)66660066000254

The 212 was legit too. Williams kicked 2 goals in that game and Dale kicked 1, just like today. Eerie! 😯

The first five placegetters this week were all carryover teams. The average score was 53.1 but that was skewed upwards by Scrag's day out. The median score was only 47. Nobody got the 20 point bonus.

The PIEMAN Leaderboard

As this week's Pieman results go to air it's not even clear whether we will still be in the finals hunt in Rd 23 (Carlton trail Melbourne 22-30 at half time) but the likelihood is that there will be only one WB game left to decide who will be the Pieman for 2022. And it has come down to a VERY close race with three strong contenders and maybe a couple of long shots still in the running.

The big lead that Foxman98 had a few weeks ago has been whittled down to 15 points over the 2019 Pieman winner Snarls Barkley. That's less than a Josh Dunkley goal in his possible farewell game for the club. Also in the running is the 2018 Pieman winner X_box_X who is only 55 points behind the leader.

Others still with a chance, even if it's only one game to go, are long time leader TiAn_ (122 behind), ScottyDogg (139), Sharkey66 (159) and maybe chez_ferret (171) and LordC (177) ... but they'd want to have a pretty big week!

RandomDog registered only 20 this week and looks consigned to the wooden spoon once again. Ahh, but life's a lottery anyway, eh?

Pieman Payer of the Week

It was Baileys all round at Marvel today with Bailey Williams getting the PPotW from Bailey Dale and Bailey Smith in fourth place (just behind Bailey Liberatore).

Pieman Player of the Year

Cody Weightman looks to have this sewn up.

Secret Selections

Just a reminder to the top few on the leaderboard ... you might want to keep your selections confidential this week so that your rivals can't make tactical selections that cover yours.

If so, feel free to PM me your selections instead of posting them here. All the other rules still apply. I will announce your selections here as soon as possible AFTER the start of the game when entries have closed.
