G’day Community,

Only two days in and I already feel like I need a stiff drink.

Had Kreuzer and Lambert…Kreuz concerns me, Lambert not so much. He was a spud for a half but still got over 70, his points will come.

The big one is Zerrett, what a nightmare that is for coaches. Any doctors out there? Medical or psychological? Patch needs some help.

Alright, here’s what I want to talk about

  1. Injuries, what’s your backup plan?
  2. Last minute changes, you making any?
  3. VC/C if you didn’t go Dusty or Cripps, who you got? (I’m going Fyfe into a Geelong/Melbourne player I reckon)
  4. Anyone going to any games this weekend, let’s fill a bay and yell Tony Olango’s name on repeat

Lot’s of love, Lekdog

I have Zerrett and Danger. Do I bring someone in for Danger and then burn a trade by trading Zerrett to Danger next week? All of a sudden my pod Zerrett seems Ike a bad idea.

TheGreatBozza
Guest
TheGreatBozza

Is Zerrett going to be out next week? I don’t like the idea of burning a trade this early on, unless Zerrett is going to miss 2+ weeks

Thoughts on downgrading Danger to Armitage then when Zerrett drops go from Armo to Zerrett? (plan to bring back danger asap)

VC on T.Mitchell, C on either Bont or Kelly

TheGreatBozza
Guest
TheGreatBozza

Don’t like Danger to Armo. Too big a drop off. I like the logic of using a mid pricer to get a cheap Zerret, but is there another way you can do it?

Will
Guest
Will

How cheap will Zerret get? lets say he comes out and averages 110 for the next 4 weeks..

TheGreatBozza
Guest
TheGreatBozza

Not 100% on the maths and breakevens; but I’d assume he could go down past 500k

Anon
Guest
Anon

Shouldn't go down too much if his next two scores are big, the 19 will only be in his price calculations for 1 week as it's a 3 round rolling average .

Daniel
Guest
Daniel

That's not even close – because it was in round 1, like Anon says, it only counts in his rolling average for one price change.
For him to get under 500k, he'd have to put out three consecutive 70s to dip under 500k. Most likely, he returns and puts up two 100s, and he would then be around 545k.

Defying_Madness
Guest
Defying_Madness

and I doubt anyone would be able to afford him at round 3 so he likely goes back up in price.

Round 1 score is only in 1 price movement. It's not going to make him crash in price at all. Second score of the season is far more important

Fritsch and Ryan for me. Going by JLT form Fritsch well do ok and will be a big cash cow at low price. Ryan was ok at JLT showed a promising sign, good for bench cover.

TheGreatBozza
Guest
TheGreatBozza

Can someone call me crazy for considering Mason Cox as a Krooz cover? My options are:

1. Olango to English; losing loophole option. Keep Bundy and Greene up forward
2. Olango to Hayes (DPP and loop option). Then go Bundy to Cox, Greene down to Billings (need to do it to free up cap space)

Thoughts? Krooz has me in a pickle already

Mike
Guest
Mike

I’d go English before Cox, $300k is expensive bench cover.

TheGreatBozza
Guest
TheGreatBozza

Cox would be F5 over Christensen, and cover Krooz for a week or 2

INPieman
Guest
INPieman

If you've got 50k in your bank I'd consider Olango & Bundy out for English & Cox. Plenty of DPP flexibility & both might keep playing. Having said that I can't see either English or Cox being good scorers. The top 13 rucks last year Av 18 games each. So the cover could be useful down the track as well

TheGreatBozza
Guest
TheGreatBozza

I’d have to drop a Mitchell to kelly or Pendles to Parker to fit Cox and English. I like my mid structure though. Tough calls to be made

TheGreatBozza
Guest
TheGreatBozza

I also think cox has much better scoring potential than english

AuroraBorealis?!
Guest
AuroraBorealis?!

For me the best option there is Billings, jumped from an avg of 74.9 in 2016 to an avg of 92.7 in 2017. Looks to be on an upward trend and should get a decent amount of midfield minutes.

LuskinStar
Guest
LuskinStar

I always start Zerritt but this year went Oliver instead. Happy with that choice at the moment. Also have Kreuz and Danger. Both have surprising low ownership so I don’t want to give up potential no 1s who are pods too soon. Will give Danger 3 weeks. Anyone heard how bad Kreuz is?

Knaggerz
Guest
Knaggerz

Are Walters and Sicily the real deal? Feel like traps

Russty_
Guest
Russty_

Could both be but you never know with speculative picks, Walters can go big and will be more in the midfield, Sicily finished strong last year but can be over-emotional and a bit floggy.

Westy
Guest
Westy

Sicily scored well last night. I picked Roughy instead. 🙁

Starkingdom
Guest
Starkingdom

Sicily had 5 clangers and still scored 125 thanks to his 84 DE%. If you don't have him now you got to get him in before his price rise. Looks like a top 6 defender to me.

DacZawson
Guest
DacZawson

I'm so tempted by Fogarty's scoring potential with his tackling pressure but JS is a problem

Starkingdom
Guest
Starkingdom

He's a last minute upgrade from the rookie list so the signs are there. He's 191cm and 87kg and at 21 yrs old seems like a very good inclusion. His tackling and accurate kicking will (hopefully) see him stay the distance. Last years 2 games weren't flash but it was his first season and coming from a different format of the game you'd expect him to take some time to adapt. "In early 2017, O’Connor was upgraded to Geelong’s senior list. Mark’s form in the VFL was highly promising as he displayed great improvement in his newly adopted game. His… Read more »

BrownlowBoy
Guest
BrownlowBoy

Did nothing last year. Scored 28 and 35 in his two games. Geelong have too much depth for him to be a regular. The likes of Danger, Henderson, Scooter Selwood, Murdoch, Cockatoo, McCarthy, Buzza, Crameri all gonna be rotating through the team at some point.

DacZawson
Guest
DacZawson

BB what rookie would you be taking in the midfield then?
I've already got Brayshaw, Banfield, Holman, Barry, Kelly and Finlayson down back

BrownlowBoy
Guest
BrownlowBoy

I had Garlett in there. Could always swing Finlayson into the mids and grab Naughton if you don't have him. Otherwise Clark/LDU is an option.

DacZawson
Guest
DacZawson

Yeah I think I may go Clark and then if Garlett seems worth a corrective trade pre-Round 3 than I'll trade Clark down.

Henderson the only defensive player out of those you mentioned. So much talent still to be included in the Cats lineup, looking good!

I'm thinking Banfield plays first so i'm putting the E on him and Holman and Brayshaw on field. If Banfield scores well will leave Dangerfield on the field. If not, will put Kelly on field. In your case, Barry plays first so I would put the E on him.

Am thinking of swapping Danger for coniglio, keeping the cash and hopefully bringing danger back by round 5-6. Should see a nice rise in price by cogs and let me assess how danger is tracking before spending 745k, allowing for a price drop or if he's killing it bring him straight back in. Would love some thoughts on this as I'm still unsure.

Hmm this makes things interesting I have been tempted by him all pre season thinkin his a mid-fwd now even more so as a pure mid.. but I’d have to lose kelly or Mitchell in the guts. I can see Duncan Selwood n danger all helping with points not stealing them like ppl say. Thoughts?

Post_MaSloane
Guest
Post_MaSloane

They are all beasts, and will still all score well. Duncan didn't go below 90 after round 7, and 100 after round 15. We all know Danger and Ablett are the two best Supercoach scorers of the last decade. Duncan plays well off a wing, but where he is real damaging is as a run-with player getting clearances out of the square. Of course a run-with player is still handy on the wing, but with the decrease in midfield time we could see Duncans score drop by 5 points a game, taking him out of the top 10 mids. The… Read more »

INPieman

He's not playing all season in the midfield. He's 33 & now as injury prone as they come. He's past being that player. When he plays forward he's a menacing headache for any team. He will split his time between the two. That is when he plays

Post_MaSloane

I’m starting to move back to the idea of starting with Dangerfield this week. 5 mins before Thursday’s game I traded Danger to Dusty, with the idea of keeping $100k in bank to trade Dusty back to Danger in round 2 or 3. I had already decided I couldn’t have both Danger and Dusty because of my Round 14 bye problem. I have Fyfe, Parker, Heeney, Laird, Mills & Billings with R14 bye. It is obvious if this was later in year you wouldn’t waste 2 trades to trade him out and back for missing one week, but it is… Read more »

I think the main concern with Gray is that he'll need to be replaced by a bench rookie twice before the byes. I think it'd be okay if we had some decent forward rookies but there's every chance someone like a Ryan or Giles-Langdon could average 40.
I'd be leaning more towards Wingard or Dixon if you were to go a Port forward

Derek
Guest
Derek

Don’t like any other Port Forwards.

Gray wasn’t high on my list, I was just looking at upgrade possibilities

I did think about Billings to Hogan and Mills to Hibberd.

Borko
Guest
Borko

Derek, I actually like your strategy of switching Danger to Dusty (I think we need to start at least one of them). If you also have Mitchell you could try your luck without Dangerfield and re-assess in a few weeks (would help your bye situation). I didn't make the switch so feel I need to hold Danger as I don't want to be chasing both of them during the season.

pod
Guest

Say you trade in TMitch or Ablett for Danger and you chuck the VC / C on him and he scores 150-160 which obviously doubles, then it becomes a good option.

RUCK: Gawn, Nat (Olango)

Should I go LDU/Clarke for O'connor? Olango for English or another idea?
Would love some best ideas. Thanks

Lloyd named on a wing. Mighty tempting to start him over hibberd at D2. Thoughts? Defence is where to take the risks this season

Post_MaSloane

Post_MaSloane

For me, defence is the place where I'm not going too risky. The forward line is so hard to pick the top 8, that any pick outside of buddy or Heeney is basically a risky pick. Therefore my plan is to lock down a big chunk of my backline, with Hurley, Laird, Hibberd and Savage all in my starting team. I would pick Hibberd over Lloyd, Hibberd is the general down back whereas Lloyd will get impacted heavily with McVeigh in the team. Check out Lloyd's scores with and without McVeigh. However, Lloyd still represents value and is likely to… Read more »

I really like it mate! If Libba and Coniglio are locked in, I would probably use the war chest to upgrade Bonner to a premo who you think will end the year in the top 8. Who you think that will be is up to you

We only have 30 trades, and while there is a lot of value to be had, you can't rely purely on value picks and you still want to get as close to your round 23 team as you possibly can. Trades are golden

Maverick
Guest

Thanks mate.
I have been flirting with bonner to savage or sicily for a stronger D3 or venables to sicily at f5. Probably can’t go to wrong with either. Should save me a trade down the track like you mentioned they are priceless.

Should I put Naughton on bench and get Riley bonner or keep naugton on field and get O'Connor Geelong

Sicily or lobb at f5?
Upgrading either Langdon or venables to one.

Dogs

Derek
Guest

Have a quick look at GWS draw and who Lobb is up against. Except for Sandi in round 4, but he will score well around ground, he has chance to start very well and get some good match fitness and decent scores.

I have Petracca at F4 and Lobb F5

I would go Petracca ahead of Lobb

How does the community feel about Tim English? Low scoring potential but could worth it for ruck cover.

Maverick
Guest

Tempting but his got a low scoring potential. I like having the loophole of olango (& banking 30k) with all my other rookies playing though. Probably a lot of ppl in this boat. Just depend on what suits your structure and game plan.

Derek

I’m really surprised he is playing. Dogs have Roughie, Campbell, Schat, Boyd and Tregrove all ahead of him.

He must have really improved over the pre season

Did he play any JLT?

Johno

Lobb or McLean?

McLean seems expensive to me. I think he will do ok, if he gets more midfield time he will do a bit better than his price.

Are any of the expensive rookies worth it?

How many are people starting with.

I have None.

I did have Naughton until O’Conner was named.

So far Dow and Fogarty have been underwhelming.

Right now there are just enough cheap rookies to fill the rookie places.

BVC article was outstanding plus the piece in the second JR magazine on Cash Generation taking about how cheap rookies make more cash, make me keep away.

The only one I have is Brayshaw. He could possibly avg 80-85 and be worth $400,000 in no time.

Defying_Madness

Defying_Madness

I only have Naughton currently because I am only 2 defenders deep in the backline. I like Brayshaw but he just costs a lot of money so I will likely pass.

Derek
Guest
Derek

Unfortunately I didn’t see Brayshaw play in JLT. Do not sure what he can do.

I saw Naughton play, he is a tall key defender! Played ok but he will be a very slow burn.

Brayshaw's much better than Naughton I reckon, he already looks the full package..can do it all.

Juzzy

Only have Naughton Derek. Agree, slow burn, but good job security and looks like a decent intercept mark.

Don't have him but am very interested to watch LDU despite his crap JLT. Terry Wallace reckons he was a cut above all in the last draft. Think I might have just enough cash to get him as a corrective trade if he lives up to the hype.

Petracca or Sicily?!

Derek
Guest
Derek

Have a look at Melb draw. Quite SC friendly.

Viney won’t be playing for a while. Lewis will be playing in defence this year.

There is room in guts for Petracca and he has Max tapping it down.

Sicily will have some great games and some very poor ones. It will depend on the opponent making him accountable. If he is forced to man up he will score 30’s because he isn’t a natural defender. He wants the easy intercepts and long kicks. Too risky for me, but as a hawks fan I want him to do well.

Could trade English down to Olango and see who you can get for O'Connor?

Defying_Madness
Guest
Defying_Madness

yeah but then if Kreuzer only misses 1-2 weeks I am screwed as I will have no cover.
I was looking at Luke ryan to Cox leaving me with a lot of cash to go Zerret to Danger next week.
Now with having so many rookies who are not playing and barely any options I am unsure.

BrownlowBoy
Guest
BrownlowBoy

Could also just leave O'Connor and hope he plays?

Defying_Madness

I could but I don't feel comfortable with both Ahern and O'Connor who could end up as donuts. Might need to find a way to fork out the cash for Brayshaw but nothing seems great to me.

hedski
Guest
hedski

Can't make up my mind on the Kreuzer conundrum.
Do I wait for next week and assess, possibly trade him out or bring in Flynn (DPP) for Olango and slot Cox into f5 for Bundy to provide cover?
I kind of like the idea of being able to cover Kreuz/Gawn if they miss a week instead of sideways trading them, Kreuzer looked like going big before the injury, can't find any news yet on how bad it is.
I have the cash to make the move and still have $100k change.

Defying_Madness
Guest
Defying_Madness

Yeah I am stuck with the same dilemma. If I trade Ryan to Cox via Sicily I have cover for my ruck and I have enough cash so I can upgrade Zerret to Danger next week.
A really tough choice

Hey Hed, I reckon do that..Coxy could turn out to be ok, Christensen could reinjure his shoulder anytime, then you can wait on Kruez and hope he's ok within 2.

Agree Russty wait but I would give PEDERSON a lot of thought J S will be good for 8 weeks. I traded Kruz for Nank minutes to go . have a dead set Guns n Rookies set up best 2 def best 6 mids cept martin gawn/ nank and two best forwards p only two midpricers flog SICILY and LAMBERT but MY 16 rookies need to make 200 each will take time

Hey Neil yeah Cam will do well without T-Mac taking points, I had him last year and he turned out to be a nice pod. I'm a bit more midpriced madness than you in my squad, I have about 6 of the buggers…no risk, no reward hah.

I'm going the Cox route. Figure we need to make the most of the unlimited trades and save a trade on kruze of you also have Merritt. Gives an easy route to danger for those of us that took him out.

Marty

Cox is a burn man…i'd evaluate the extent of Kreuzers injury…plenty of good options if you don't want to take the risk (Goldy, Witts, Martin, etc). Just using a valuable trade you might need later on

Well here it goes, tear this team a new one peoples..

Def: Hurley, Laird, Simpson, Naughton, Doedee, Finlayson, (Murray,Murphy)
Mid: Mitchell, Martin, Kelly, Fyfe, Armitage, Brayshaw, Kelly, Holman, (Dangerfield, Banfield, Barry)
Ruck: Gawn, Goldstein, (Olango)
Fwd: Franklin, Boak, Petracca, Christensen, Rayner, Fritsch, (Waterman, Garlett)

76k left as of RD 1

Im kicking myself over the Murphy pick, Reckon that might be his first and last for a while, will go Coffield/more solid pick as corrective if needed. No DPP available in any position yet, but i personally have no drama with that.

Derek

I'm seeing a lot of SC players in disarray concerning what to do with Danger. Can't believe many actually sideway trading with premos that may be a good upgrade option down the track and then taking them out again for Danger that's 2 trade wasted. If you hadn't planned this situation, suck it up and stick with Danger for this 1 round. I'm confident as Scott he'll play next week. Danger may not score big when he comes back, but will save you a trade or two and still have that option target to get a premo later on. As… Read more »

john
Guest
john

I think those like myself who didn't choose danger in the initial squad are hoping that he has a lower output than what he did last year for the first couple of games he plays, and banking on that he will drop 60-70k, and a player like coniglio for instance will average around 100. that means that in the first 5 rounds you break even on points between the 2 players, yet gain 110K in cash for 1 trade. thats my thoughts anyway

SCdonkey
Guest
SCdonkey

The thing is you'll need a couple of plans if going down that path. What happens if the player selected is pumping 110+ are they gonna cull that player for Danger. 1 trade will be wasted and may miss out on that player scoring, if they don't do the trade and Danger starts pumping huge score they'll be tearing their hair out on how to get him back in.

Defying_Madness
Guest
Defying_Madness

Sure if Kreuzer misses 2+ we trade him out but if it is only 1-2 I am not taking donuts. Cox/English are necessary in case it is only 1-2 weeks

SCdonkey
Guest
SCdonkey

I'm guessing you're sacrificing Lobb for Cox/English. What were your plan with Lobb or expecting him to score for you? I'm guessing you picked Lobb for scoring output. Now you're banking on Cox purely to cover Kreuzer for two weeks, then what after? I know a few people who had groin injury and they played basketball in Center position and they weren't right for a few a weeks.

Holman and Brayshaw currently on field – Barry on bench because he is in the same game as Banfield. 2. trade to L Keeffe, swap with Finlayson to mids, and take Doedee's 87. Next week, trade back Keeffe to Danger or Dusty if Dangerfield doesn't play. This way I can have a look at the Port/Freo game before assessing my options and can wait till Sunday to… Read more »

Option 1 I think, not worth burning a trade chasing a few extra points in week 1, I'm holding Danger as Leagues don't start until round 3.
Depends on what your priority is I guess, I like winning Leagues, rank comes second for me and is a pipe dream for all but 1 of us.

Option 2: Classic case of chasing points and wasting trades. Just cop it the chin mate and forget Doedee score. Good luck with that, if you pick this option.

Thoughts on which midfield set up I should go with

2. Danger, Kelly, Zorko, Merrett, Bont/Parker – 51K/83K

Appreciate any thoughts/advice.

Keeffe or o’connor? I know both aren’t playing. Feel like O’Connor more likely to play, but Keeffe can switch with Sicily in the forward

And is English worth the spend? If so, do I put him at R3 or F8. If I put him in the fwd, I could only swap Giles – Langdon out. Got kruezer so English might come in handy

Better to put him in the ruck as it saves you a trade in the long run if you use him as cover when your R3 doesn't have DPP.

For anyone wondering what to do with O'Connor, what I've done is sub a fwd premo into the guts (in my case Mundy) and bring in a west coast rookie (I brought in venables)

1. I haven't actually planned for any injuries as my concern was on whether I should have Danger in my team at all given he's missing Round 1.

Russty_

Ideally, you'd wanna end up with both though DM.

Defying_Madness

Yeah I am starting with both in my team

Caleb

Yeah I have danger Mitchell kelly/oliver Fyfe. Wish I could fit both in also

Tom Bell looks to be one of those JLT hype picks. Spudding it up

Russty_

For sure..I thought Christensen looked the same but he's coming good.

Glad I’m a year older and wiser. Last year I’d of been sucked into the bell hype

Roberton is looking the go to off half back for the Saints, can already feel the rage trade coming for Savage.. I’ll be smart give him a game and a half to show me more

BrownlowBoy

He started cold in the JLT then came home strong. Hope for your sake he comes home strong.

How is that even possible?!!
Imagine if you had Merrett and Zorko…

Kyle
Guest
Kyle

Imagine having zerrett zorko and kreuzer like me…and lets not forget im holding danger…in for a HUGE round 1

Atleast the decision to take neale over fyfe looks alright atm

SirSamuel016

At least he has double digits now?… The pain and the stench of the big turd is unbearable for me.

And Brayshaw, and Ryan, I have all 3 yay!

Fisherdan

Brayshaw! Top scorer 5 mins to go in the 1st quarter!

BrownlowBoy

Fyfe struggling early. But good for Brayshaw and Banfield, both started well.

Spuds4sale

uurrgh Zorko

Spuds4sale

Spuds4sale

it's between him and Mcartin for low score. I have em both

Rick Grimes

I've brought Oliver in guys. So far other late ins for me include Zerrett and Zorko. You've been warned

Maverick

I’d just done the same, Trade reversed. Thanks for the heads up rick!

FearTheBeard

LOL.

I just did Danger/Oliver…

Do I reverse LOL.

The Chef
Guest
The Chef

Was tossing up Kreuzer & Savage or Hibberd & Ryder…

I definitely did not choose the correct option.

Randomcliche2
Guest
Randomcliche2

Just imagine if you'd gone Ryder and Kreuzer

Spuds4ever
Guest
Spuds4ever

I wonder how many had Kreuz, Merrett, Zorko plus rookies murphy and Barry on field

Randomcliche2
Guest
Randomcliche2

Kreuz + Libba + Naughton on field 50k'th here

BrownlowBoy
Guest
BrownlowBoy

Fyfe VC not looking promising

JohnDJ59
Guest
JohnDJ59

Clark & Barry are going as well as Murphy did.

Derek
Guest
Derek

The hype around Bonnar looks correct.

I’m going keep O’Conner in defence and $160k in the bank. Next couple of weeks I might have to trade out any of my dud cheap rookies to Bonnar. Have Garlett in mids so I can trade any of my forward, mid or defence rookies and get Bonnar.

GreendaleFC
Guest
GreendaleFC

Yeah I'm already looking at how I can swap into Bonner next week. If he keeps playing like he did in the first half he will make a huge amount of money.

Defying_Madness
Guest
Defying_Madness

I have no way to get him in now. Chose Brayshaw over Bonner

Russty_
Guest
Russty_

Angus?

WoW_Trevor
Guest
WoW_Trevor

How are you tracking Russty? McCartin, Zorko combined didn't score as much as an average rookie. That sort of ruined me.

neil demons delight
Guest
neil demons delight

ASK him about the saints Trev 6 tons from irrelevant StKilda time for a rethink

WoW_Trevor
Guest
WoW_Trevor

I had 3 of them Steven and Billings plus Spud McCartin instead of Garlett

Russty_
Guest
Russty_

Nice effort getting Jack for $500k Trev, I'm jealous, should've backed him in!
Told ya Paddy would dish up some 40's, I went Christensen instead, but I just flipped a coin really.

Russty_
Guest
Russty_

Hey Trev, 996 from 11, not great but not terrible, had Fogarty, Brayshaw and Christensen's spuddy scores in there, and disappointing Armitage after quarter time..T-Mitch as Captain. Glad I picked Billings, Bonner and Ryan.

WoW_Trevor
Guest
WoW_Trevor

Yeah I got Banfields instead of Brayshaws and took Holman off for TKelly not a brilliant round here

Defying_Madness

Watching him closely, there will be a few rookies will go after round 2.

AuroraBorealis?!
Guest
AuroraBorealis?!

I've got 130k spare Derek, will be looking to potentially upgrade Naughton after rd 2

Derek
Guest
Derek

I could have got naughtin when o’conner Not named, but would have cash to trade any other rookie, only naughton.

This way, via O’Connor and Garlett I can trade ANY of my cheap rookies from any line.

Might be Barry the way he is going

AuroraBorealis?!
Guest
AuroraBorealis?!

I wish i had the same freedom in that regard. I suppose i could go parker down to Cogs and keep the extra cash. Trading Keefe to bonner next round sounds enticing.

WoW_Trevor
Guest
WoW_Trevor

If I drop Zorko for Curnow I can turn murphy into Bonner. The week after I'll turn McCartin into Marchbank
Then get Zorko back after round 5 for 150k cheaper

neil demons delight
Guest
neil demons delight

sounds brilliant mate sorry but gonna steal it

WoW_Trevor
Guest
WoW_Trevor

no worries mate if you've got the line flexibility may as well exploit it straight away. How are you going? Wish that I had have gotten Hogan instead of McCarting but I was holding cash to upgrade Zorko to Danger for week 3. That plan is gone

neil demons delight

Hey community,
Was Zorko copping a hard tag today? Or was his spudliness just having a shocker?

Blaknight
Guest
Blaknight

Hard tag. I was at the game. Great signs for the lions…. Is it me or are St.Kilda fans complete flogs? To me they are worse than Collingflog fans

David C

Nah we get 30 and I've usually used 4 before the price rise and never ran out yet

Rick Grimes

Zorko might have to go. Can't avcept this level of spud.

Ja191

I can see him going 150 next week, had an absolute shocker

SirSamuel016
Guest
SirSamuel016

I wouldn't burn a trade like that, he's just had a major stain of the pants this week. Watch him bounce back well next week.

what is an acceptable score for an onfield mid rookie ?

AuroraBorealis?!

i'd take anything 65+ from a rookie Richard.

I have 36k in the bank which i will use to go Weitering to Marchbank.
Should i hold Sicily and Kreuzer even though i got rid of Keefe for Murphy
or
use the money to go Sicily to petracca now then next week trade Kreuzer down to whatever ruckman and use that cash to do the weitering trade.
Thoughts?

Defying_Madness
Guest
Defying_Madness

Kreuzer could still play, he is a tough guy. I might have just talked myself into believing this to maintain my sanity

BlueBaggerJosh

Round 1 Carnage, early tradings for sure. Lucky i had plan for this situation.

Rocky is blowing cobwebs or he's just done going towards his time.

TommyC99

Kelly or titch C?

AuroraBorealis?!
Guest
AuroraBorealis?!

As a collingwood fan i think Titch will score very well. It'll be a good old fashioned game of midfield v midfield and it should be good for points.

Derek
Guest
Derek

TMitch.

WoW_Trevor
Guest
WoW_Trevor

I'd go TMitch but, I swapped Kelly for Zorko today

AuroraBorealis?!
Guest
AuroraBorealis?!

I've got the C on Fyfe this week. Fingers crossed he can get going otherwise my season may be in trouble.

WoW_Trevor
Guest
WoW_Trevor

864 from 8 includes Zorko and McCartin.
TMitch, Bont, Gawn, Hibberd, Heeney, Buddy, Petracca plus rookies to play
Cripps, Laird, Steven, Billings, all going 130+ helps

Kruezer & Ryder going Down is making me second guess goldy… should I go down to Nicnat and bank 50k?
