New Rules for 2012 – Reversible trades

Jock is alive and kicking for AFL Supercoach 2012 and AFL Dreamteam 2012Thanks for the early support of the Jock Reynolds Supercoach / Dreamteam Community Folks. Really ticker warming stuff and there is a real buzz about at the moment.

There is some breaking news on a change in trading rules in 2012 that has just come to our attention. We have all done it early in our career. You’ve had your eye on a gun for a few weeks and suddenly there is a window of opportunity for you to trade him into you team at a bargain rate. You get the rush of blood and trade him in early in the week before teams are even named for the upcoming round. The player then slips on his bathmat while flossing his teeth and whooshka – late withdrawal – trade wasted – season stuffed.

With this rule change (labelled the “Heath Shaw” rule after the gambling balls up that left many of us smashing our heads against dashboards on the way home from work on that fateful Friday in 2011) it looks as if you will now be able to reverse any trades that you have made midweek every round right up until lockout.

Now for purists such as myself the need to rely on such a rule to safeguard against such a novice mistake seems pointless and cheap. However if we are going to get the kids involved in this great game at a grassroots level this may have legs….

What are your thoughts on the new rule?

    Perfect…when I buy a pair of shoes, I don't wait until 5 min before store close to buy them with putting them on. I try them on early, see how they fit, shop around. No different to DT players…I love it.
