    Not sure pip. Bit distracted.

    We were lucky to win. Doggies play badly up north in the humidity

    You caught me by 1 this weekend, stupid Eagles should have won, they played well, got in front then dozed off letting the Saints back in front, after that it was an arm wrestle & the game could easily have gone either way. A good game to watch appart from the Eagles taking a nap, its a good thing I wasn't holding anything at the time, the TV may have been in danger...

    On a sad note, I didn't win my fantasy grand final & I lost the other 3 finals, 2 of which were elimination finals. I pretty much knew I wasn't a big chance to win this week, 4 weeks ago I had 6 players sitting on my bench & I was moving along comfortably, looking strong, then every week since my team has had injuries & suspensions, so that I went into this round (even after making the 2 allotted trades each week) with a bench full of injured or suspended players & no one left as emergencies...
    I had ubber premium player Pat Dangerfield sitting on my bench this week, costing over 700k he represents about 6% of my team worth & has been a consistent scorer, alongside him I had one of the ruckmen I had playing last week on the bench injured & I had to trade the other ruckman I had playing last week so I could bring in an uninjured ruckman & I had not choice but to play the emergency ruckman I have who I knew would score low(and he did).
    My luck in the last month in fantasy has been atrocious to say the least, however I am not too disheartened, thisis my rookie year as a fantasy coach & I made finals in all 4 leagues I took part in, plus the gand final in one & I am still in with a chance in another of making the grand final. With all things considered I'd call this year a success, even if I don't make it to or win the grand final in my remaining league, I always considered this year to be a bit of a practise run & next year I'll have a better idea of what I'm doing.
    Oh & yeah my team in AFL Fantasy is called : The Dancing Pandas :panda:

    Still only one dud tip this round - but three more games to go - Doubt I will topple Noe from the lofty heights at the top of his gilded ladder. :violin:

    You missed a game, I tipped a "perfect" round 9/9 :D
    If I can do that for 2 more weeks I might get my average/round up to 6, where I expect it to be but I doubt that will happen this year :(

    I won my fantasy football final this week, so made it to the prelims, if I win this week I go into the grand final next week.
    Looking at the other team this week, the sides look pretty even " on paper" however this is before trades have been made & if they have $ to spend on trades I may have a tougher match up. I'm hoping they don't have the $ to spend on trades & are in the same boat $-wise that I am in, careful use of the 2 available trades could be the difference between a win or loss this week :sweating:

    2 weeks left. Still a chance. You have outdone yourself for a first year tipper that didn't actually watch a game, pippi.

    If you do finish second, I'll find a little something to send you. So you don't cover second place when that is you lol

    I know! was tempted to suggest a meet up but too much going on in my life to commit to the game - I reckon it will be a win - the crowd will cheer them on :h:

    It sold out ages ago.

    I'm not big on going to the footy with other people. I much prefer solitude so I can concentrate
