Sorry fellas, just stopping by for a rant!

F U Mummy for putting your knee through Josh Kelly’s face. The Kent not getting up this game has cost me a semi final as my Kent of an opponent traded him to Matt Crouch. While I held him for my 2 prelims.

If the Kent doesn’t get up for Melbourne I will be back again to vent.



Have a great day everyone.

rd 14:
double downgrade to get Jelly, he scores 70 and gets KO'd

rd 15:
doesn't play

rd 16:
not playing, so I might trade him out


You can't make this sh*t up
Jelly to MCrouch for a cool 148

See kids, we all make mistakes, it's how you fix them that counts
except I blew 4 trades on this Jelly adventure and now I only have 1 trade left, so I'm going to be posting in here next week when 4 of my players are dropped/rested/injured

Jack Martin what a pretender.

I've owned this kent for 3 weeks after he pulled out a 144 from his arse only for him to serve up garbage scores. To top it all off the campaigner goes and gets himself injured. 😡

Will probably trade him to the Chad now cause I'm a poor kent. 😄

My last six premo trade-ins of the season (all made over the last 3 weeks or so, some were sideways for byes):

Ridley: 2/3 under 100 after only four under 100 all year. sh*t.
Saad: Tossed up a delightful 66 this week, but ok the last two. Average-sh*t
Martin: 63, 72, 36. sh*t and dead.
Coniglio: Two scores in the 70s. sh*t.
Brayshaw: Rougheaded back in for a 63. Better this week.
Berry: Came out firing with a 141, followed by a 48 and is now dead.

Argument could be feasibly be made that I picked the absolute worst option in the price range for 5/6 of those :rainbow:

EDIT: Oh, and along with Martin and Berry, I own Doch and Spudkin and am the proud holder of zero trades for prelim round.

I also STUPIDLY ignored my head telling me to go to a 117k M/F donut and traded Coleman, now with Tobe back alive I have no VC loop next week, my only non playing spuds are Xerri and McGovern (who will be traded out) and both play in game 1 of R18. I’m currently trying to decide whether to go super Premo and keep a rookie on field with a loophole option or two solid premo’s for R18.

Playing Docherty and Simpkin over Watson 90\Sholl 110, and Rivers 107\Shoenberg 97.

Cost me a few a prelims due to it. :(

Yeah trading him in after Rd2 is one of my biggest regrets of this year, along with trading out Brayshaw after Rd1 before he had a breakout premo year.

Trading Dangerfield to Fyfe prior to the game Fyfe did his hammy was another doozy.

My Top10 season 2020 regrets. :fire::$:fire:

1) Starting the season with 5 perma-doughnuts: BJ Williams, Dev Robertson, Mitch Hibberd, Conroy & Cavarra. (I only expected Conroy to be a perma-doughnut at the time) I traded Hibbo out after a few rounds for zero profit a week before he played his 1st game. 56k in combined cash gen from the other 4 who remained on my bench all season. How I managed to *cough* "complete" my team by Rd13 will remain one of life's great mysteries.

2) Starting the season with Fort at F6. Originally I had Curtis Taylor in this spot and $200k+ in the Bank (something I do every year) but instead I used up nearly every dollar just before Rd1 lockout on this spud instead. Severely compromising which rookies I could afford to start with (see above)

3) Starting with spud Ceglar thinking he'd be good for a 90+ ave F6 being a KoTD ruck and all whilst providing ruck cover at some stage.

4) Trading out Andrew Brayshaw > Chad Wingard in Rd2.

5) Trading Fort (dropped) > break-out 'SP' Ben Long in Rd2 (for 42 points)

6) Rage trading "mistake" Ben Long > Sturt in Rd3 (for 11 points and injured)

7) Sideways trading Whitfield > Fyfe in Rd4 after Whitfield was injured only for Fyfe to only last 1/2 a game before also getting injured forcing another sideways trade.

8) Upgrading Serong > Gus Brayshaw in Rd13 (chasing previous few high scores) for a return of 2 meh scores and a season ending injury.

9) Upgrading SP Thurlow > Harris Andrews in Rd 15 only for Andrews to last 1/2 a game before succumbing to a season ending injury.

10) Captaining Neale in Rd13 for 72x2


Yet despite all these hilarious missteps and clownschool moves, I'm somehow Ranked 889 overall with 1 Rd to play and a slim chance for a 3rd consecutive Top1k finish. Big shoutout to the 150k+ Ghost-ship teams & WaynesWorld19 for making this possible. :)
