TooSerious

For those who take it way too seriously

Round 17.
Lots of big changes this week, some are fantasy relevant.

Hopefully everyone is pretty much fully upgraded now and just tinkering on the run home.

Good luck to everyone for round 17

Teams are over the break....
330 from Danger, a 142 from Docherty, 129 from Goldie and a rebound from Fyfe with a 139.

You'd think that there would be some big scores out there, but damn, 60 from Dahl, 61 from Treloar, 73 from Hanners, 74 from Dusty and a whole other assortment of bunk has made for quite the bi-polar score.

Still, surely someone avoided the kajillion bullets out their this week?

How'd we all go?
Greenwood out.

Booooooo

Ins and outs over the break

Wineglass Bay Packers 1107 defeated Charlies Opening Spelunkers 946

I finally got my tanking strategy sorted this week, lining up Stephen Hill to munch on a donut. Not that him playing would have helped as Tracey took me on a wonderful cruise around Wineglass Bay… in 40 foot seas. Safe to say dinner didn’t stay down for long. Sandlands going down again will be an ongoing concern for the Packers, but the Ranga Lynch up forward struck some form.

My learnings from this game : Ginger is an average cure for seasickness, Sean Darcy is going to be a beast and if you are going to throw on Tracey’s boat make sure you face downwind.


Lovely Banks Lilacs 1145 defeated Gundagai Grasshoppers 1120
Jen came out and told sNoZ to get stuffed with a great win at Lovely Banks in arctic conditions. After king hitting Callum Mills behind play with a heat bag scented with lavender, it was an average performance across the board that got the Lilacs over the line with only one ton coming from The Hoff. The Hoppers had Neale, Cripps, Martin and Grundy ton up, but the rest were spuds.

My learnings from this game: Lavender is a great alternative treatment for headaches, Snoz’s team are going to be inconsistent for another season yet


Whitsunday Warriors 1106 defeated Nunawading Nuffers 1038
Terry quaffed his Tom Yum as the big General went bang again for his second ton in as many weeks to put Andy’s Nuffers to the sword and keep his team in the race for a Top 8 spot. The decision by the Nuffers cheerleaders to wear Ski Jackets did not go down well given the tropical climate, with Tory Dickson especially failing to fire up.

My learnings from this game: Patton is scary when on fire, Terry and Andy both need a ruckman, and Andy needs to check if he is playing home or away before he does the cheer leaders costume selection.


Foul...
Big win for Captain Danger this week.

Small loss for those of us that benched Nank for the Greenwood score

Huge loss for those who held onto Sandilands.

Where did you rate this week?

Man oh man, I nearly had a huge week this week, if it wasn't for the Fyfe shaped donut leaving me with a 2306.

No bad at all.

Loved Greenwood coming in for the again-missing Steele. And Danger coming out from his injury cloud to put up a 145 was just delightful.

How'd you all do?
Cousins out. Damnit Cousins!

Having attempted to push through a move to his native Adelaide at the end of last season, there were some who felt we might not see Bryce Gibbs performing at his very best this year. Well, it's fair to say that those doubters have been proven wrong after 13 rounds of the 2017 campaign. Following a very impressive start to the season, the Carlton man produced what may well end up being the best performance of his career as the Blues defeated the Suns.

The midfielder's showing won't have gone unnoticed, and teams around the AFL - especially in Adelaide - will all be well aware that the price for Gibbs could well have increased. For fantasy managers, the Blues have been a decent side to tap into for point-scorers despite their relative struggles throughout the first 13 rounds of the year. As well as Gibbs, Marc Murphy and Sam Docherty have also been prolific for fantasy owners this season but it was the Adelaide-born midfielder who stole the show against the Suns.
The byes are finally in the rear view mirror, and the stretch into the finals has properly begun.

Hopefully your team is in a position where you can hold onto your trades until the finals, or if you're still in the hunt for the overall, in the hunt for the overall.

Scorewise I did alright, I think, particularly with the Steele-induced-donut, but it was irrelevant for my cash league, cause the other guy was proper unprepared for it. 11 Byes on the field kinda unprepared.

Teeheehee.

Structure wise, I have 10 trades, $100k in the bank and still need to upgrade SPP. Not sure where the dollars for that is going to come from though. :D

How you guys shaping up?
