PODCAST….for the people by the people…love it

Dee

Anzac Day Podcast…. Go Bombers!

Love this community

This will make the podcast even better!!

Vinny

I know the injury risk. But can Daniel wells be a very sneaky POD?

Hooksjpg

no

whatyasmokin

Mid only, 547K. Not with his injury history.

Top Gun

Serious burnman..related to Higgins and Dawson.

Jasen

Someone please shout out TRELOAR in the Podcast!!! Big Score 141 increased his avg by 9 points to 105!!

whatyasmokin

Was great to watch, and I hope it is a lesson to those that traded him out!

Redd

WHE and SPP might be time to cull

oldmate65

Yeah great call, I will be looking to get rid of both of them this week

Steeeve

No boak more mid time for spp achievable break even

Redd

Stoked i picked up Tom Williamson this week nice 81 on the bubble

Beezneez

Was going to be my only trade all week but didn't go through with it. Only upside is that I saved a trade and probably would have used Williamson's score instead of Hamptons. That bird probably has flown now. Tried to work out why my original comment was deleted by the Administrator and realized I should have used the word "peeved" instead of the other word starting with "p" when describing my feelings after the Carlton game.

Tommy

Time to ditch Jaeger and make some $$$
Is Zac Fisher the best quality rookie on the bubble this week?

whatyasmokin

Should be playing for Carlton which is in rebuild phase.

whatyasmokin

Should be the best quality due to JS, at a rebuilding club.

Fixed*

Babo

I did that last rd for Sloane… payed a top price BUT sometimes you get what you pay for.

ian

there is simply no other choice this week

poloko48

Watch out for Myers in a few weeks, had great comeback game in magoos apparently.

ian

Yes he did…will be perfect downgrade for any number of fat cows shortly

John

LOL at everyone that brought in Yo-Yo, Matera & Murphy #chasingpoints

whatyasmokin

The community tried to steer people in the right direction ๐Ÿ™‚

Wedge

Actually matera was just for dollars

John StClaire

Yep, i traded him in too. This week he'll hopefully raise by another 40k and get upgraded next week. Worth it this year due to the lack of rookies. I think anyway.

Weasel

The SC gods set their traps (Yeo, Murph) and I couldn't help myself.

Cpt Pugwash

Oh Pendles.. why are you looking dis-interested and hurting our SC teams.

Tells your injured, tell us your playing shit cos you don't like your coach and want him sack asap.

Or, just get your shit together.

SF4

Pendles will bounce back, every year people say that he is injured and then he returns to form the week after. He will still be a top mid.

whatyasmokin

Yep

Geist

Not sure if he’s injured but I believe he is expecting his first child some time very soon, might be a bit distracted with that. Hope all is well on the home front.

Derek

Significant

Paulio

thoughts on Jezza Cameron for a pod, will be reasonably cheap, and i know he had one massive score this week bur he seems to be getting solid scores at a good consistency over the rounds.

hedski

Bus. Chase. Flat face. 39 pts next week.
Maybe…

whatyasmokin

Not sure. GWS will get a lot of pill up forward. But I like Lynch over him. (Wait till after bye)

What about Toby Greene?

Bruce Paperclips

Also keeping an eye on him. Is playing up the ground more with Patton and Lobb stay at home. A speculative pick for certain but if you have some other solid contributors up forward he could be a great POD!

Josh

Like it. It's not chasing the bus as he has potential to keep averaging around 90-100 for the season just like buddy and JJK in previous seasons. Even if he averages 90 for the season is a good pick up forward. Power forward in a top 4 side lots of marks and kicks lock him in

Ben

boys blake hardwick on bubble worth a downgrade?

whatyasmokin

Not sure I trust Hawks to play rookies with lack of wins. Would take Fisher?

Randomcliche2

played well, good decisions, good kick and liked to kick….playing the hawks style, which I think Clarko will like…. but Birch/Hendo risk to role…

Hinch

My favourite community.
Have a bit of a long-winded problem, but will try and keep it short and simple.
My rucks are Ryder/Hickey and Witts……..
I have Nank in my forward line.
Should I be looking to get rid of either Ryder or Hickey? Maybe bring Nank into my rucks and get a premo forward? Or Witts good enough for on field ruck??
Would love your opinion community!

Top Gun

Keep Witts. Nank the tank you can either move into the ruck or leave in the forward line (my preference) and downgrade Ryder to a rookie. This money you can use to upgrade Hickey to Martin (who should be the number one ruckman)

He Man

What do we do with Swallow? BE is 94. I can't see him getting that. But don't really have any cash to get someone decent? Maybe a downgrade? Zzz

whatyasmokin

Fisher.

SF4

I'm trading him to Hanners this week. Hes gotta go.

whatyasmokin

Good move mate, Sydney vs Carlton.

Danners

I can see him get that, hold if possible

Babo

I may just hold Swallow untill he escapes his poor score from the calculations.. Maybe there is more cash to be made trading out another with a lower celing than Swallow. He has shown he can do the 100+. Just may take till post byes to inflate his stock value enough.

Northerner

If he scores 70 by the following week he'll be back at his current price. I think there's more left in him personally

Bitta

Who's the best forward option to get in other than Macrae, Dahl and Nick Riewoldt? need to give roughy the boot and have 140k to upgrade.

whatyasmokin

Greene.

redherringfc

I'm looking at Kennedy, Buddy and Greene. I remember Greene fell away at the end of last year, so i'm not too sure on him. Buddy seems like excellent value at the moment, Kennedy is a bit more pricey, but he plays in round 11, which is a big plus for me. The $483000 question is do you have Nank? if he's in your ruck, swing him forward and bring in the best ruck.

Bitta

No i'm without the nank, should i get him?

SF4

Nank looks like the best option, jump on.

Jkoel

Lynch is very underrated and has shown good form so far this season. He will be less inconsistent than buddy or Kennedy

Bitta

ill definitely look at lynch after his round 9 bye, dont wanna get him in before that. cheers

sandni836

Do i pull the trigger on D. Swallow for an upgrade to C. Oliver? or give swallow more of a chance to regain tons?

whatyasmokin

He's a dead weight.

SF4

Get rid of him

kim

yes get rid of swallow, but you missed the boat on oliver I think. Not sure he will outscore hanners from here on out. I have oliver and traded in hanners this week. Might be worth a punt on oliver given he is still cheaper than hsnners, but hanners has had a few seasons now of averaging 110+ and oliver is only in his 2nd year. Just some food for thought. Both have the same round 11 bye which makes it easier, just one is cheaper and at the moment scoring more than the other, can he keep it up all season, that is my only knock on oliver at the moment. Future gun of the comp though for sure!

Jayden

Hannerbery worth bringing into my team? Starting to provide some better scores. Also how is Aaron Blacks job security looking?

whatyasmokin

Like both moves, could be too early on Black although he had a really good game and should line up. Tempted to go early here for WHE.

SF4

Hanners at 540k is a bargain.
Watch Black this week and see how he goes.

Danners

Hannebery is worth bringing into your team. Black has average JS since he had a big week last week

Josh

Swans are cooked be a good effort for him to finish top 8 mid from here. Risk v Reward pick

TheScacman

If you havent got him already, Treloar is in the same price bracket and you'd be crazy to miss him at the 550K range

oldmate65

Boy oh Boy, Michael Hibberd on his return putting up 124, by no means should anyone trade him in. But I will certainly be keeping a close eye on him over the next few weeks.

whatyasmokin

Could be that cheap backline POD………….

jimmy

going risky this week doing these trades help my structures

SPP ——-> Mcnise
Pickett ——> Witts

Lachy

way too late on witts

whatyasmokin

No good.

Danners

Wait a week and look at Tippett instead

SF4

Too late on Witts.
Watch McNiece this week, too early to get him in.

Adrian Neems

Ok community can l get some feedback.

I had the Yeo Yeo from the start and has appreciated $69k…he was always a trade up pick to a premo, l just merely took a punt as l know in previous years he has a purple patch Has Freo at home this week, l am so undecided in what to do, but with Freo coming good and he's playing in defence, he could have a cracker this week, l'll hold and cop the flack for having him in my team (from the start)

But he's gone after this weeks game. I'm learning not to rage trade fom earlier years, have 27 trades left, am thinking that l might go

1. Swallow (has north this week, but is going to lose $11k, might get out now) to Fisher
2. SPP might hold for one more week, has had three average weeks, will still appreciate $10k and plays Brisbane. If he's not dropped will hold one more week.

If l do this l will have 26 trades and $348k in cash.

I think Robbie Gray is going to go nuts the next few weeks, l want to bring him in, but l know he can have poor patches as well. Any thoughts on Robbie Gray community.

whatyasmokin

Don't like his forward move. Avoid for now, especially with the round 9 bye.

Danners

You could hold Swallow another week. He can get to 94, he's just had a few niggles the last week. Maybe get Fisher in for another rookie

whatyasmokin

Ok so I take that back about Gray, he is scoring great up forward haha.

Still would grab him round 10, for a round 11+ player of course

NoLanguage

Had Robbie from the start – been up and down I would hold off till after his bye.

Derek

Gray has some problems with his groins. That is main reason he is playing more as s forward. He is doing very well, but I would be worried about his injury and missing a few weeks and posting a few poor scores.

He was high on my watchlist as a round 10 trade after his bye, but I'm going to cross him off. Good luck to anyone who takes the risk.

Jasw

Is Roughy > Buddy and Hampton > Shaw good trades? Thnx community

whatyasmokin

Roughy I would trade, No way you should trade Hampton on a 12 BE, he will make a good amount of cash now after his 100.

Jasw

Thank You rough it is

Derek

Have a look at hawks draw for next 4 weeks before you dump Roughie

Mike

Derek do you have him and are you keeping him? Or would you hold him if you did? I'm going Swallow to Fisher than Roughy to Macrae but not sure now

Derek

i don't have roughie (i do have Cyril).

i'm a big hawks fan.

I always said that Roughie will take a few games to get going, but will finish the year strong.

he has actually gone up in price a bit.

He looked ok on the weekend, he just needs to find his place in the team.

Hawks have Saints, Mel, Lions, Collingwood next 4……

whatyasmokin

You miss rookies with good job security you are stuffed mate.

Mike

Derek do you have him and would you hold him? Im going Swallow to Fisher and then Roughy to Macrae but now Im not so sure cause roughy could score well

whatyasmokin

Then you will miss a mid rookie from a rebuilding side that seems to have good job security.

All for what? Maybe an 80-110 out of Roughy, he won't even go up in value.

If it wasn't a hawks player Derek would be saying trade haha

HarryO

whose the better downgrade target of polson or balic up fwd??
& is WHE on the chopping block with a BE of 70?

whatyasmokin

Yep WHE should go, not scoring enough. If you have a mid/fwd rook you could swing them forward and grab Fisher on the bubble.

HarryO

yeah looking to down grade JOM to fisher
& possibly WHE too polson or balic… cant decide which. maybe balic if named and polson the following week when back from suspension

whatyasmokin

I'd wait and get black in the forward line but each to their own.

Beezneez

+1

whatyasmokin

Pull the trigger on JOM > Fisher I reckon at least.

Gameofsloanes

I say no to Black
Think Parsons takes Black's spot when he comes back from suspension. He is more versatile

Martin

Anyone going early on marchank his be is obviously achievable i thinks it 30 or 40 odd points but I'm looking trying to get a full premo team ASAP!!! Thoughts?

whatyasmokin

Nobody else to cull? Print your team I have the BE's

HarryO

keep him . as long as his making cash hold… give him another week an get shaw if u dont already?

Westy

I brought in Spencer and had Murphy. Do we have a likely injury duration for both of them?

In defense of Spencer he still got 41 in under half a game so he was running above his breakeven. iInjury notwithstanding it wasn't a bad move.

So do I bring in Martin to the rucks and bring a likely lad on the bubble into the mids?

whatyasmokin

Murphy is likely to play. Spencer will not.

Yes great move on Martin, and bring in Mid rookie Fisher I think.

redherringfc

Thinks he's 6-7 weeks. Might still get a few games before/if Gawn comes back.

Tony

With respect, Spencer wasn't such a great move – he would have cost the same after this week and we all got to see him play again. Not saying we could have predicted the injury of course, but the possibility of injury is yet another reason why you should try not to go early (on 1-gamers).

SF4

Yep, Spencer is out for 7 odd. Needs surgery.

ChasingFinals17

Murphy is up for selection this week apparently, probably won't score what he has the opening rounds due to he might be abut sore

The BONT

What happened to M.Murphy injury wise

whatyasmokin

Is likely to play next week.

TRIGGER HAPPY

I see everyone is talking about upgrading SPP or Marchbank or WHE but they all played this week and will probably hit their BE.

Surely the more pressing issue is to upgrade a non playing rookie to someone getting a game to generate some cash generation?
Or was I the only one who had a bench start of Rd 5 consisting of:

Tarranto, Eddy, Hannan, Barrett, Hibberd, and Newman? And Pickett but at least he played.

Might have to pod this one.

whatyasmokin

I ditched SPP last week for JPK, didn't go awesome but he only dropped 10K.

Main reason was I strengthened my mid and had GHS who I held for two weeks come back and reward me with a 102 at M8 (Beams M7 100)

WHE is going this week with a 69 BE he just doesn't get into the nitty gritty enough, and it won't be easy vs Geelong.

I'm seriously thinking about WHE>Black as long as he is named. I don't advise to do this move as it could backfire.

SPS>Fisher for cash too.

whatyasmokin

Marchbank has a low BE of 34 and is a big hold.

Can hold SPP too on a 41 BE.

Derek

I thought Marchback had his best game. He will be ok for a few more weeks. Carlton backline will be seeing plenty of the ball

WHE has set a new benchmark for seagulling!

Rocksta

Fair call TH. I have all of Eddy,Barrett, Hibberd and Newman on the bench, as well as Cameron whom I now do not think will get a game antime soon.
In contrast, I think Newman and Barrett will play soon, if not this week. The other guys just aren't worth enough to use a trade on, and even if you accept that, we are still only going to be trading to guys whom we hope will have decent JS ( Fisher, Hardwick, Black).
I think it's better to cash in the Rookies whom are worth more and nearing cash generation exhaustion. At least in that case, you'll have more in the bank in the case that the Fishers, Harwick's and Blacks of this world don't work out, not to mention getting more premo's on field quicker.
My two bobs worth anyhow.

Adrian Neems

this is a good point, l am considering two options trading m.hibberd to fisher at least this way fisher is playing and on the bubble…or should l go pickett to balic…as l think picket is exhausted….even though he has a low be….as the ball in carlton's forward line….who knows.

argh…help whats the better way to go.

Derek

If they play, they stay!

Rocksta

I had planned this week to cull SPP and WHE and bring in Grundy ( via Nank forward swing) and Fisher.
My concern however is the fact Bucks brought Cox into the side. Given our impotency up front, I think he will continue to play him for a while longer ( Even though he had a fairly ordinary game today).This invariably will effect Grundy due to sharing ruck duties from time to time, as it did today.
Thoughts?

cjbravo

Downgrade SPP to Fisher and upgrade Roughy to Stef Martin?

Cheers

whatyasmokin

Would do that trade for sure. Roughy 100 odd BE I think.

SPP (BE 41) could make more but have to move on fisher, and SPP looks like a crap cash cow honestly.

Rocksta

Sounds good to me

red5

Thanks for tips the last few weeks community
I got my best result. Top 1 %

whatyasmokin

Congrats

Derek

1% overall or this last week?

red5

just last week

Rivo

Roughy & SPP & Swallow. Which 2 to trade out? If I take our Roughy & Swallow…

Looking closely at the fallen premo like Dusty & Treloar.

Considering Oliver, Macrae, Dusty, Wines, Gray, Treloar & a Rookie suggestion?

Rivo

Any suggestions?

Mich

Probably missed your chance with oliver. Couldnt go wrong with anyone else on the list. Treloars price is the best value at the moment
Fisher is the only rookie im considering this week

Derek

McCrae and Trelor are best 22. Not sure about the rest.

Steeeve

Balics chances of a return?

Daniel Z

Even if he gets back in, he still plays for Ross. Likely to be in and out because Ross does not know how to develop young talent.
He did it at St. Kilda and he's doing it at Freo.

VayJiney26

Since you won't say it I will F.U.R.L. Give Ball lick a go.

Beady Eye

I could have sworn Ross dropped a bunch of old blokes and replaced them with kids a few weeks back, and that Freo haven't lost since.

But forget all that, it gets in the way of the popular narrative…

whatyasmokin

Agree

Cpt Pugwash

Taranto OUT – Ballick IN (with a bit of luck)
SPP OUT – Parsons IN (gone early)

I've looked at my other rookies and in 2-3 weeks they'll be cherry ripe. Hence early move on Parsons.

Taranto won't make much more either, so Ballick In.

I have other slow growth rookies with not enough cash generation to top up the coffers.

I'm going Macrae,Greene and Franklin who has easy games coming up.

I'm top 800 with 29 Trades- It's time to move.

Be Brave Community. Don't Wait! Shop Early!

Adrian Neems

hey mate your doing much better than me, just wondering why your bringing in parsons while he is still out suspended, not shitting on your strategy just wondering why is all mate.

Cpt Pugwash

Hey Neems,

My other rookies are on the slow burn. It's more about timing, if I don't pull the trigger now, then I'll have about 5-6 players peaking at the same time and others coming down enough to buy-in.

Also, I'm now prepared to lose a little cash for extra points i.e Buddy who I think will smash it for the next few weeks against weaker opposition and the return of other key swans.

Can't keep dropping behind.

Granted, there are other rookies on the bubble who have presented themselves this week (Fisher and Hardwick).

Derek

If Myers named, very tempting to get on early.

whatyasmokin

Don't like the parsons trade.

Balic if named and Fisher would be better.

kim

Very brave mate, could be fool hardy though as parsons is no certainty to be back in next week. Reckon balic will be back in this week. I would not go parsons this week personally, why not fisher instead on the bubble this week?

John

who needs to go first? taranto, SPP, Barret, eddy, parfitt, or marchank i have 160k and i would like to bring in Hubberd so i was thinking taranto to hibberd via mcGgrath…. sorry if this makes no sense ๐Ÿ™‚

Derek

If they play, they stay

kim

No way I would go hibberd this week, he has just come back from injury and was out all last year. Injury trap for mine. Wait a week to if he can actually back it up first.

Holty

Its time to trade out whe and roughy. Just need to select a fallen premo or stef martin. Either way, will be happy

Rocksta

Stef is bloody expensive at the moment. If your current rucks are doing okay, I'd wait for a poor game so price goes down, but this may take a while given his BE is 95 this week ( his lowest score of the year so far is 98).
Treloar at $558K is a steal. You saw today what he can do.BE is 113.
Hanners is starting to warm up and at $540K, he too is a steal. I fully expect Hanners and Treloar to average 110 to 115 for the rest of the season.

VayJiney26

Couldn't agree more. Handonberries gets the handshake this week and Pendles in a couple of weeks if his price is right.

Choice

Hepper at 510k too

Choice

Heppel

Dean Billman

I'm doing the same, bringing in Jack Macrae and Z. Fisher.

boourns

What do people think of Aidyn Johnson from port?

Powerage

He won't be a regular mate

Juzzy

Something aint right with Pendles.

2nd week in a row he has been sitting on the pine when the game is there to be won. In years gone by on Anzac Day he would have been at the coal face of every last quarter contest. Injury ? Problems with the coach ? Who's to know ..

I know I will get shouted down for this but I am contemplating dumping him for Fisher/Balic and the bounty that will give me to fix other lines.

I never dump premos and surely won't be bold enough to go through with this move but something aint right …

Holty

All i know is im licking my lips with pendles. Welcome to my team in a couple of weeks mr dependlebury

Rocksta

I agree with Holty but I also agree with you. He hasn't looked the same since being benched in the third qtr last week. I'm a pies Supporter and Pendles has carried injuries on a couple of occasions over the past few seasons. That said, he is still usually in the 90's. I haven't seen him play as bad as he did today for many a year.Hopefully common sense prevails and Bucks rests him this week to get over whatever it is that he is carrying. It can't be a form slump…………he diesn't have those.
I definitely however wouldn't trade him. He'll be back to averaging 120 plus in no time.

Juzzy

Hope so Rocksta.
Don't like that he denied an injury last week and again today. What's the point of that ?
Something doesn't smell right.

Rocksta

Yea, agreed.
You'd think Bucks would jump at the chance of highlighting an injury to Pendles so as to deflect from why we are playing so Shite.
He definitely didn't look right today, that's for sure.

Derek

Wells took a lot of centre bounces. Pendles and Adams pushed out

Big G

I think they are grooming Treloar to be the number one midfielder. Pendles still a champion, but makes sense for others to share the duties of being main act.

Rocksta

Stef is bloody expensive at the moment. If your current rucks are doing okay, I'd wait for a poor game so price goes down, but this may take a while given his BE is 95 this week ( his lowest score of the year so far is 98).
Treloar at $558K is a steal. You saw today what he can do.BE is 113.
Hanners is starting to warm up and at $540K, he too is a steal. I fully expect Hanners and Treloar to average 110 to 115 for the rest of the season.

Rocksta

Sorry, post was in reply to Holty above. Just reposted in the right place.

poloko48

Kieren Jack has been confirmed out for next week, might see Robbie Fox back?

Danners

Fox has been demoted to the rookie list unfortunately, surely Newman comes back

Derek

he has to.

Keenbutclueless

Might be Florent

Haze

Have $28k in the bank and 27 trades… Time get rid of Roughie (along with everyone else it seems!). Do we think Nank will be a top 6 forward by year end? or do I look at Buddy, JK or Lynch from Gold Coast. Much prefer the smaller mid type forwards for consistency and already have Dalh and Greene?

Rocksta

Nank is a Ruckman, and a solo ruck at that. The others are traditional forwards. Nank will score more consistently than them, even though the others will go real big from time to time.
I'd take the consistency anyday, and yes, I think Nank will be a top 6 forward this year. He is currently averaging 112.6

Finnius123

I like Nank – also has that coveted rd 12 bye

Adrian Neems

ok so l think l am going to sit tight for one more week and give Swallow, SPP and WHE another chance at a stay of execution.

I have M.Hibberd on the bench, and didn't care if he sat there and got splinters, but now that Fisher is on the bubble only seems to make senses that l make this trade….thoughts community is this a good idea.

I have Picket and Eddy on the bench in the forward line…l want to hold Eddy, and Pickett whilst doing shit, l think will keep playing and be is low…is it worth going to Balic if he gets up from cough* injury and is picked…in the derby this weekend. Kind of hoping he doesn't get picked, so l can pick him up the following week…

Currently have 27 trades $132k cash. What do you the community think>>>???help needed lol

John James

M.Hibberd has to go and now you have a good reason to do it,''Fisher'' at least he will be making some cash.I have the same problem with Pickett and Eddy on my bench as well,if Balic get's picked he will be coming in for Eddy,since the way Port are playing I can't see him getting a game for a while.

Top Gun

Only keep M.Hibberd if you are using him like I am as a Loophole Tarzan (Swingman) …..ahhhhhh ahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!

Juzzy

Yeah. Forwards are a bit of a guess this year.

Like Nank as a top 6. I am trying to figure out how to get Macrae in. He might fit your parameters.

Juzzy

Sorry, in response to Haze

Haze

Thanks Juzzy and Rocksta. Agree, should get more consistency out of Nank than the key forwards. i did like macrae at the start of year but went Dahl instead as didn't think I should have both. Hindsight! Thinking will try get Nank first as can see his price increasing more than macrae in the next few rounds. Agree?

Juzzy

As late as it seems (cash wise) I reckon that's a good move.

Be sure you think he is a keeper. Don't forget the big blonde bugger from the Saints as an option.

Haze

I do have a soft spot for blondes…I tend to group Nick in the "key forwards" basket with buddy, jk, lynch etc. whether this is fair or not, who knows. probably convinced macrae is a keeper b4 Nank which is why my first question – is Nank gonna be top 6? Ahhh forwards, always giving us grief. Haven't even worked out how to get Adams in my backline yet! Am on top of my league at the moment so no need to panic just yet. With fisher our best rookie def on the bubble, who is the best forward downgrade target? Balic if named?

Rocksta

I reckon Parsons. Showed a bit of talent against the Hawks and has a bit of mongrul. I reckon Chris Scott will like that.
I'll be bringing him in Rd 7 after his suspension if named. Straight swap Parfitt for Parsons.

Rocksta

That trade should nett around $130K as well.

Daniel Z

My forwards are a steaming pile of garbage this year.
Did some quick math – for round 5, they combined to net me a massive 379 points…

I've got Nank and agree he'll be top 6. I am also looking at Macrae for an u/g.

Nank's in my ruck at the moment, may switch that up with my trades this round – looking at WHE / Roughy out, so could swing Nank forward and upgrade in the ruck if I don't go with Macrae (downgrade up front or mids – if the swing set works).

THE SALTSHAKERS

2340 moved into 677th overall, 28 trades (only used 2 on butler & newman), still have jom & swallow

Not sure what to do with them? id rather upgrade them both, so thinking of holding as ive held them this long. Dont see fisher as must have

Rocksta

Agreed,
But you should be giving me advice, not the other way round.
Congrats on your great season so far.

Derek

Well done. Great rank, you need to trade for points now. If Swallow and JOM are named you keep them, they will score better than the rookies. If not named -JOM, trade him.

Finnius123

Nice stuff – I would be trading for points now. Paint the fence with JOM & swallow – both not gonna be keepers or make any more real dosh.

Derek

but if named, i would hold them. Having a JOM and/or Swallow on field instead of rookies will score better points

I'm sorry but I disagree. Say Zach merrett and SPP on field will score about 140-240 . Swallow and omeara combined can score anything from 80-200. What is the better deal there?

Top Gun

Swallow to Fisher, JOM to premium mid (Sloane ranger?) or whoever you can afford and you think can be a top 10 mid.

Sloane way too expensive

As my Dad said to me today….."trades are like follicles son…..HOLD onto them for as long as you can, a thinning trade balance cannot comb over the bald spots on your team score sheet".

Wise words from a wise man, on an important day, where stories are told and should be heeded.

As a bald man I regard this as politcally incorrect.

I shall sue you in good time Sir. ๐Ÿ™‚

Maybe there is a direct correlation between my lack of hair and my lack of trades later in the season?

Derek

Beautiful stuff!

Top Gun

I am a tradeaholic. It's a boring week when you don't trade. Lol.

Does RDT update players to the new DPP's?

Finnius123

Nope – I wish!

TigerMAN

Anyone with Higgins holding or keeping?

Juzzy

Yep.
As much as it hurts gonna hold.

JuddWarneLoveChild

Missy was great in round 1 and simply awesome in round 2. Severe drop for the 2 weeks combined with having this week off, suggest he got injured in R3. Reckon you've got to keep him too see if he recovers that early fine form.

Swans2012

Hold

Adrian Neems

advise please community, with parsons suspensed, does his price not move until he plays again, do the donuts from being suspended affect their price.?

TigerMAN

No, It only counts if the player actually is named and makes the field. He Should be a nice target if he is named after suspension. then you should consider trading him in

Booma

No. Scores & averages are only affected by games played.

Adrian Neems

that's what l thought, but read above that someone is trading him in this week….? Couldn't see why…but eh smarter people and higher ranked than me,….just thought l may have missed a trick.

Choice

Thoughts on Roberton? been killing it

Finnius123

Similar to Yeo – you have already missed his major price hike so no harm in having another couple of looks at him before bringing him in. Only purchase if you reckon he will be a top 6 backman. At the moment I have Lloyd and JJ ahead of him with the same bye round – could be a good POD but would wait a few weeks before pulling the trigger.

Top Gun

I like him as a surprise top 10 backman and POD.

Only 3 rookies on a decent BE bubble
Zac Fisher MID $117,300 BE -57
Blake Hardwick FWD $134,900 BE -49
Harley Balic MID – FWD $123,900 BE -39
I'm leaning towards Fisher to Pickett
