PODCAST | It’s Time For Culling

Published by Patch on

Some of us have been doing it for a few weeks, but Patch has declared it: it’s Open Season on rookies, and time to begin culling like mad and upgrading like CRAZY. So, Lek and Patch look at which ones to cull and which ones we can leave to fatten and who you should be targeting with said cashola.

We also answer a few community questions and ask the terrifying question… should you trade out Dangerfield? (The answer is absolutely not you mad lads but at least listen to our logic behind it).

What are your trades this week?

Patch

We're definitely not late due to the two of us watching any worldwide phenomenon television show involving dragons and kings and queens and stuff. I don't know why you'd even suggest such a thing.

Russty_

You know it's on at 11 am your time right?..I guess I'm just lucky being able to watch it then if I want lol
I'm either doing 2 trades, or no trades this week..hard to bloody say yet.
Trade out Dangerfield?…umm nah don't reckon I will…that's just rampant silly-ness.

Streaker

Gonna cull 2 rookies this week and bring in 2 more cash cows so I can build my cash up for a raid of premo's. Thoughts please.

Answerth
Hately
Corbett ( someone nobody is talking about)

Holty01

All good options. I guess we just have to wait for team selections and hopefully that will make the decision for us

COREYSC

exactly right mate, I'll be looking at Butters to Hatley if Hatley doesn't play Butters to Fyfe my other trade will be Petruccelle to Corbett

Daz

Not sure about the the double downgrade, do any of these rookies have good JS? I would look at Hately because his B/E is so negative that he will make enough money in few games to justify but there is nothing I hate more than a 175k rookie languishing on the bench.

Streaker

Haven't got enough cash to geab Fyfe this week but with a double down grade can get him next neek or Whitfield. I won't upgrade for the sake of upgrading to a player who wo
Won't be top 6 or 8 in their position.

Diggers

Wanting to cash out on Petrucelle or Parker, but what not really any worthwhile fwd/mid newbies to bring in (Setterfield on mid bench DPP)??
Will D Moore (Hawks) get ongoing games?

Phatman

I’d be holding Parker for a bit longer mate, his BE is only 12

Streaker

Corbett will have good job security I reckon

Mick

Sitting about 2000, need a mid for $563,000 or less to plug a hole in mids, thinking Mundy, 1 percent owned, Fred going ok, low break even, as not convinced other mids in this price range that I haven’t got will be certain top 10 mids, got Fyfe Neale macrea Cripps Walsh Oliver m crouch. Can move forward when time suits as good chance to be top 8 forward. Good move or stupid

SC_Kev7

Few names to consider, Mick. Cunnington, Pendles, Gaff

Swans2012

I like gaff

DEE

Pendles

Tofa

I like Cunnington, avg of 113 and less than 2% owned plus he's North so he still makes points when his team stinks it up

Derek

Blakely will be back this week for Freo. Will effect Mundy

DEE

Good morning community, could someone please tell me Ziebell’s BE…. Thank you.

Cam_H

34 :O)

DEE

Cheers

Yep

Is it safe to say that O’brien Can hold R2 and we can trade Goldstein to a premo on another line?
I’m thinking of getting Neale (using a second rookie downgrade trade)

DRay

What will you do when Jacobs comes back? You're better to wait until Jacobs returns, cash out RO'B then, and use the cash to upgrade to Gawn or Grundy, depending on who you don't have.

Yep

I would downgrade a rookie then upgrade o'brien to Grundy… got Gawn.

redherringfc

I think you’re plan is ok. It seems a waste having such scoring sitting on your bench. When is Jacobs due back?

How much will Neale outscore the rookie you upgrade by? this should be a good chunk more than the difference between Goldy and ROB. Plucking numbers out of thin air, you’ll probably be 30 points a week better off. And it really only costs you the trade that you would use to upgrade Goldy to Grundy later anyway.

Derek

Blakely will be back this week. Will effect Mundy and Walters in the midfield

nat fyfe

does libba have to go? or do we hold?

KSinny

I'm very tempted to trade but not 100% sure

The Ranger

Same here Sinny, if he moves back to the mids and Dunkley goes back forward then he's worth holding.
Hard to know what the Dogs midfield make up is from week to week at the moment.

SC_Kev7

Consider what rookies you have that need to be culled and do that first. Libba on field over a rook is a better option.

Brn

True. But we have come to a defining point where libba is going to drop lots of cash. Cant afford to risk seeing more low scores from him imo. Upgrade to fyfe for me.

Brn

Its either keep libba for a long time or lose him now

Tofa

Yeah I'm gonna move Butters and Libba out for Answerth and Bont. there's other options I could lose like Petrucceli or Clark but Libba will lose the most coin

COREYSC

Butters to Hatley (if Hately isn't named Butters to Fyfe)
Petrucelle to Corbett
Leaves me with 667K in the bank to begin upgrade season

Stacky23

out of dunkley, daniel, cameron or walters who should i grab
refuse to touch mundy after trading him out rd 3 πŸ™

Sana

Daniel

Holty01

Any of them except Walters.

Derek

Walters will be pushed forward when Blakely is back

hedski

Collins and Butters most likely to get the chop this week for me.

Mr_Pink_

Gibbons and Drew for me – if rookies permit will do double downgrade this week… Probably need one rookie with a bit more cash behind them (Drew) to free up options for next week… one premium defender and one premium midfielder in… should have the cash for Ryan and Macrae

Hold Fire

Wines out for a month, should mean Drew goes back into the middle for large minutes again.

Sam_01

2126 for me this round moving me up 440 spots to rank 1114 overall
Will be looking at libba and Petrucelle out then Boak and Answerth in, allows me to have stack on field instead of Parker/Petrucelle. 125k in the bank, hopefully looking at a walsh to josh kelly direct swap the week after

JMor

Hey man,
Boak has the first bye and is around his peak price so I would consider trading him in R13,

Not sure what other FWD's you have but IMO both Jezza Cameron & C Daniels are both excellent value, should be top 6 and low ownership so will get you up the ranks.

Good luck for the rest of the season

Sam_01

Hey mate I did consider this but I reckon Boak will have a blinder in the show down and back it up with another solid showing against GC the week after I’ll be looking at grabbing Daniels as my last fwd after his bye leaving me with
Boak, danger, kelly, heeney, Dunkley, Daniels

Murray

Who is best premo mid of the 4 below to get in this week and why, taking into account:
current price,
ave,
BE,
price ceiling and
scoring potential for the rest of the season ?

Pendlebury, bontempelli, gaff or McRae?

Hazey

Gaff

Murray

any reason for Gaff Haze

Hazey

Super consistent…. But I'm playing both DT and SC this year for cash, so maybe he's more DT relevant looking at it

Daz

if his bye wasn't shit would be on gaff like a rash, going along ok, good price, if the eagles get there mojo back gaff will avg 110 easy.

Sana

Pendles? Surrounded by too many other premo mids, good lately though… ultra low BE
Bont? Good BE, but can dip below at times
Gaff? Great price and BE, crap Bye
Macrae? Highest Ceiling, Good price for what he's capable of, crap BE

Bont might tick all the boxes, but feel not having Macrae could hurt at some point. One of those two. Gaff after his Bye and Pendles not for mine.

Murray

Thanks sana

Hazey

Tanking Rd13 is coming in to consideration here!

Hodgey

Any suggestions for a clear newbie?

24 trades – 713k in the bank

DEF: Lloyd, Williams, Smith, Hanley, Duursma, Scrimshaw (Ridley, Rotham)

MIDS: Cripps, Macrae, Fyfe, Coniglio, B Crouch, Walsh, Constable, Ross (Gibbons, Atkins, Hayes)

RUCK: Gawn, ROB (Lycett)

FWDS: Dangerfield, Kelly, Rozee, Drew, Petrucelle, Parker (Setterfield, Burgess)

I get that I'm holding too much cash and have a lot of mid priced players rather than the GnR strat.

Sana

Need to bolster that forward line I reckon. Daniel or Marshall in? and Petrucelle with a BE of 59 is about cooked I reckon.

Sana

PS. If you've got considerable testicular fortitude, Josh Dunkley could be a goer if he gets to keep playing midfield… and Westhoff is dirt cheap for decent returns the last two weeks… Round 12 byes handy too (as with Daniel and Marshall)

Derek

Ridley to Bines (via Burgess)

This will give you a Def/Fwd swing set – Rozee/Burgess. Burgess hand for rookie loopholes forward and defence.

Also gives you a Fwd/Ruc swing set – Lycett/Bines. Let’s you put Lycett on field in forward line but still gives you tuck cover. Port have a great run of games and Lycett will be more than handy.

Also adds to your war chest

Second trade can by Gibbons to Boak (via Setterfield). Boat is a must have with Ports run of games.

Also gives you a Mid/fed swing set

Hodgey

Thanks Derek

Nifty

Not dangerous with 4 Port players in forward line?

Derek

2 are only rookies. Rozee and Drew will be gone by r12.

Port have the showdown this week and then Suns, Hawks and Saints before the bye. Not bad.

If you look at Ports run after their bye, very good. After Fremantle, they have 5 of the next 6 at Adelaide Oval. They should go ok.

Sana

Agree on Boak and Ports run – can’t argue with his form. Not sure on bringing in Bines to go with Rotham and Burgess as non playing rookies. Lots of cash now, what about later? Many swings and loops though!

Derek

Hodgey has still got 24 trades, using one to get over $400k off the bench is ok.

Even when he trades in Grundy to replace ROB he would be wise to keep Lycett as ruck cover and eventually end up at F7

Bines offers the best VC option at R3

Sana

Yeah the Bines move gets things moving. I’m with ya, sold!

Hodgey

So if I were to bring in Boak now, it'd be wise to trade Rozee/Drew out prior to the bye?

Otherwise, would an option be to bring in Daniel/Cameron now and bring Boak in after his bye?

Thanks for all the help Derek et al

Derek

News that Wines will miss a month is great for Rozee and Drew.

Boak is a must have, so the longer we leave it the more we fall behind.

Round 12 bye shouldn’t be a problem, fielding 18 that round looks easy.

Cameron is going well, has a nice draw but I’m worried about his shoulder, clearly carrying it and not sure getting him this far from season end is good. GWS run over the last month of season is insane and he will be a must have then especially if the Colman is close.

Daniel is playing super. I listen to game on radio and all I heard was Daniel Daniel Daniel. The only thing I’m looking at is JJ’s role in team. He hasn’t effected Daniel yet, but that could change now JJ has got a bit more fitness

Hodgey

Giving me a lot to consider mate.

Any thoughts on Marshall over Daniel if that's the case with JJ coming into form?

Daz

Mate I started Bsmith, Zwilliams, dmoore, libba, bcrouch, trockliff and sitting 50th overall, nothing wrong with some mid priced madness this year until it all comes falling down like a house of cards haha.

Tofa

I'd ditch Petrucceli and Gibbons for Daniel and Neale. leaves u with $104k in the bank and ups ur scoring over 100 points.

silversovereign

I agree with everything Derek said except that Lycett is a keeper. Keeping Lycett this week might give you good fwd cover this week particularly if danger is a late out but I would be looking to trade him up to a premium fwd ASAP after this week.

Hodgey

I suspect I'll be moving Lycett on down the track, but happy to keep him in for this week to get the rookies upgraded

Derek

What do you do if/when Grundy or Gawn miss a week?

Hodgey

Touche

Russty_

Hi Hodgey, not sure why you still have Hanley or Ridley, and Rotham at all, backline's a bit of a trainwreck (no offence).
Fwd line's not as bad but not far behind.
Derek's suggestion on getting Bines in is valid to get Lycett fwd, and then I'd address one of your defenders rather than bringing a fwd in, and trade for the next few weeks too, you've got problems to fix.

Hodgey

That would be a first timer error I reckon – too focused on trying to generate cash (by trading in rotham) rather than bringing in premiums.

Upgrading defence is on the radar with Ryan and Laird being my targets. Forward line seems to be the aim this week first though

Daz

Long time listener, dont comment all that often, bit stuck..Libba/ gibbons to bont/hately or scrimshaw/drew to bont/answerth? want a pod-ish player and rookie with J/S, looking to the byes so can improve on rank.

…Real question I should ask is Libba actually playing a different role? haven't watch the dogs last two games and looking for some insight from doggies supporters? Is he attending less centre bounces? Because I think if his role is the same you hold him? mayb?

Brn

Dunkley has taken his role. He also appeared to be doing some tagging (badly). Who knows what he will be doing next week

Brn

And with the high BE he has become too much of a risk for me

Tofa

I'd love for you guys to do a tiny segment on PODs, since this week probably proved that going with the crowd's premiums means my team stinks when everybody else's does. So is the whole point the fact that a team with enough pods has resilience against the popular mids having rubbish weeks? (Assuming you've still got top 6-10 guys in each part of the field)

Russty_

Looks like Danger's a chance to miss, he said it's going to be a late call whether he plays or not.

Holty01

Not good when he plays Sunday. Hard to put a plan in place if he pulls out just b4 the game.

Russty_

You're not wrong mate, still waiting on his scan results though..I might have to field Balta if he doesn't get up.

Shake_n_bake

Only me but don’t think he gets up.

Russty_

Tend to agree Shake, no need for them to risk him if he's not 100%

COREYSC

Unbreakable!

Rick Grimes

Might take a punt on Dunkley. They'd be fools not to continue to run him through the guts. Big ceiling.

Ken

Bevo always changes the team…tread with caution.. just look at how he changed libbas role

TRIGGA_HAPPY

1 of the 7

JohnDJ59

Had him from the start, if he stays in the mids he will be a top six fwd.

DavidC

They are fools, that's the problem.

redherringfc

He’s a prick who cost me my unbeaten status in a league, going down by 3.

If you want someone who has the potential to do that to opposing supercoach players then I guess he’s not too bad.

Derek

I’d love it if Cats rested Gaz this week

Dash

85 K – Seeking your best two trades this week. Double down or up and down

Laird, Whitfield, D Moore, Sicily, Duursma, Collins (Clark, Burgess)
Macrae, Cripps, Fyfe, Neale, Libba, Walsh, Butters, Atkins, (Hayes, Scott, Gibbons)
Gawn, Grundy, (Bines)
Danger, Heeney, Boak, Drew, Petrucelle, Parker (Setterfield, Balta)

Brn

Offer some suggestions?

Brn

Well obviously your fwd line is in trouble. Usually I would say you need to get petrol and parker off the field asap. But at the same time, playing butters and atkins in the midfield is probobly worse. Trade 1 up and 1 down for sure. Butters and petrol out seem the best trades. Would look at trying to get fyfe for butters, and corbett for petrol. The other option is answerth (mid) for butters, and petrol to kelly, daniel, and dunkley respectively. Although I like Dunkley as a pod considering what we know he can do. Good luck

Russty_

Hi Dash I think you need to start getting rid of some of those rookies but you can't do much with 85k.
Maybe double down and make some cash for upgrades next week.
Butters is done for cash generation, as is Petrucelle and Gibbons probably, Collins is shite, Scott is dead in the water as is Burgess.
Maybe get Answerth and Hately if they're named or Corbett fwd.
It's tough especially if you miss rookies like Ross, Stack, Baker etc who are scoring well.

Dash

Yes missed all the Richmond guys. Caught napping. It was the week where it was hard to make the decisions early. Oh well.
Have to start again somewhere. Thanks for the advice.

Russty_

Know what ya mean..I only got Ross out of those 3, can make a real diff to your season but keep fighting on.

TOPHAWK1

Got the paint brush out this week. The fence looks jaded and needs a coat of paint. Thinking of punting Libba and Clark for Answerth and Macrae. Great swingset opened with Duursma and Macrae nice value at $581K. (BE still high 149) I am not sure what the hell Bevo is doing with Dunkley and Libba, but Macrae will stay in the guts, because he will. Thoughts?

Russty_

Hi TH, pretty good trades there I think, if I was doing similar I think I'd go for Bont over Jack the way Bont's going, but both are top notch picks.
I'm thinking about sticking with Libba a bit longer to see what happens.

TOPHAWK1

Hi Russsty! I was $2800 bucks short to get the Bont. Had I had the coin I would have taken Bontempelli. Still, Macrae is smart buying at his current price whilst I have the chance. Next week he might be $10K cheaper but who cares. The way Beveridge is buggering Libba around (playing forward) he may well drop $30K next week. Then this opportunity is lost. Unless there are big surprises when teams drop on Thursday, I reckon these are two decent trades.

Russty_

In that case mate, yes perfect trades..bummer about that shortfall but either are solid as.
Worried Libba will drop cash for me but I'm doing something else this week which takes priority.
Danger is now in the mids with Ross backing him up lol
I'm actually pretty happy with how my side's starting to look and I'm scoring better now after my shite-filled start to the year.

P.S also, Macrae could drop a 170 next week and start going up again so good timing.

Holty01

πŸ‘

Frigate

Trying to work that out – looked it up on Urban Dictionary – not appropriate to post.

Russty_

It has a different meaning in regards to Supercoach mate, get your mind out of the gutter, lol

TommyC99

Hey TH,

Like the trades mate, i'm contemplating doing similar except im thinking Boak or Fyfe. Only thing stopping me is Hately. Rookies would usually be a priority but with Libba expected to drop large amounts of Cash this would be the week to do it

Derek

Are you talking about the Chad? He could repeat 2018.

Russty_

I'm not going near him unless he shows some solid consistent numbers, why were his team mates having a go at him?…laziness…lack of defensive pressure?

Lazza

I heard it was for kicking to the wrong position and not adhering to team rules of giving off to a player with eyes forward.

Twilightingale

If he plays as a pure mid like he did for Port towards the end of last year,trade for him in a heartbeat. Just not SC relevant playing deep forward.

Jimmyp

Need little help here. Culling and upgrading mid for either Bont or Fyfe (he always frustrates with injury or suspension)?? I already have Macrae for what it's worth
Cheers

Russty_

Hey Jimmy, I wouldn't worry about the fear of Fyfe getting injured or whatever, he's tough, Bont is also a good choice, both are great for avoiding round 13 bye outs.

The Haze

Top of the table clash this week so need a league win to stay up there and get a game up….24 trades left – $162k in the bank

Need to field strongest side possible. Gotta cull rookies. Was thinking scrimshaw and butters to go….but trying to work out who I need? Thinking a premium mid and maybe Hately?

DEF: Laird, Williams, Smith, Duursma, Hore, Answerth (Scrimshaw, Clark)

MIDS: Cripps, Fyfe, Oliver, Coniglio, Walsh, Stack, Constable, Drew, (Atkins, Scott, Butters)

RUCK: Gawn, Grundy (Sweet)

FWDS: Boak, Dangerfield, Heeney, Dunkley, Marshall, Rozee (Petruccelli, Setterfield)

Russty_

Hey Haze, maybe time to stop depending on rookies so much in your def and mid lines, you need some solid premos in your mids for sure.

The Haze

Yep agreed. Have stuck with them while I've been winning games but feel their lives are coming to an end! Butters and scrimshaw first in firing line. Keen to get Neale but thinking with a BE of 131 might be worth waiting? Like the look of Ryan in defence or do you think Lloyd is a safer bet?

Gainsy

A few for this week.. westhoffffff, bont, pendels, kelly, old man mundy

redherringfc

Neale is averaging 132, so a break even of 131 is par for the course.

Steeeve

Not sold on Corbett. Sick of slow burners. If Hateley and Answerth are picked they're in my team. I'll keep my bad forward rookies if I have to. Eventually I'll just upgrade them by downgrading rookies on other lines.

Robb

Trading Walsh out this week for Fyfe downgrading another rookie or Answerth

If Hately is named should he be my priority over getting in Fyfe ?

silversovereign

No mate. Get fyfe while you can. Hately has poor security, might only get one more game for a while.

JMor

Hately's 85 & 90 are what you can expect from him though. He was one of my few rookies I was eyeing off for a mid-season debut (including Cavarra & Corbett both due to perceived strong js).

Don't trade in Hately in at your own risk, when he pumps out another 100 this week you'll be questioning why you didn't trade in a rookie who's score 95, 85 and 100 in consecutive weeks.

Maal
ROB14

Dropping Drew and Collins this week…
Want to bring in a forward and back premo
Which back out of Hurn, Sicily or Ryan?
And forward from Daniel, mundy or Cameron?
Interested in what you guys think?

silversovereign

Wines and Ebert out should be good for drew this week. Hurn will probably be most consistent. GWS have an easy draw so Cameron could be worth a punt. I normally steer clear of exclusive forwards but he is tempting me.

Gainsy

Hurn. Mundy.

ROB14

Think I will keep Drew with the loss of Wines and Ebert, gonna get rid of Collins and Petruccelle for Sicily and Daniel…

DavidC

Wow, Liverpool just beat Barcelona 4-0 to reach the Champions League final.

The Ranger

Derek

Shake_n_bake

Was in Liverpool when they won it last time in 2005. Will be there again this year maybe a sign. Up the reds <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="πŸ”΄" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/11.2.0/svg/1f534.svg"><img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="βšͺ️" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/11.2.0/svg/26aa.svg"&gt;

DavidC

Fox sports has a link to the team signing "You'll never walk alone" with the crowd after the game. Unreal.

DavidC

Wines out for a month.

Binga

Thoughts on Walsh & Clark out to Fyfe and Answerth?

KSinny

Wouldn't be culling Walsh till the byes

Binga

Walsh has breakeven of 97.

redherringfc

If he hits his projected scores his break even will drop back to the 60’s for a few weeks. He’s a good chance to add another 50k or more and keep getting you 90 to 100 points a week.

Gunner

Keep Walsh through the byes

Richard

Do it. Walsh has done his job.

Binga

Instead of Fyfe I could go Caleb Daniel

Gainsy

Week or 2 early for the outs. A week late on fyfe and right time for answerth… mixed bag there.

RealDealNeale

23 trades & 38k bank:

B – Hurn Whitfield Williams Smith Moore Hore (Duursma Clark)
M – Neale Cripps Oliver Brayshaw Rocky Libba B.Crouch Atkins (Gibbons Scott Hayes)
R – Grundy ROB (Bines)
F – Danger Kelly DeGoey Dunkley Lycett Drew (Schultz Setterfield)

Which move?
A – Clark & Libba > Answerth & Bont
B – Clark & Gibbons > Answerth & Hately
C – Clark & Lycett > Answerth & Cameron
D – other?

Gunner

Prefer B of the options

Gainsy

Am looking at A so thats some support for that option

JohnDJ59

Option B if both Answerth and Hately are named, but option A is the best.

Derek

Don’t like Hately’s JS.

I’d just go Clark to Answerth.

Hold your trades

Gunner

Kade Simpson (out for another 2 weeks – hamstring) – keep or trade?

22 trades left. I've earmarked one trade for a FWD upgrade this week –
Petrucelle + cash > Daniel or Kelly, yet to decide.

Shall I use the other trade on a Simpson replacement?

Cheers!

Gainsy

If youve kept him all this time it might be better to just suck it up and trade up rookies to premos in other spots

Beezneez

I'm bringing in Fyfe this week but the only way I can do it is with one of the following trades:

Option 1: Gibbons to Answerth/Hately & Constable
to Fyfe.
Option 2: Petrucelle to Answerth via D Moore
& Gibbons to Fyfe.
Option 3: Gibbons to Answerth def via Duursma to
mids and then trade Duursma for Fyfe.

Cons:
Option 1: Like Constable's output if he's playing
although Fyfe will score better. Have
Walsh, Stack, Ross, Hayes and, if traded,
Hately/Answerth.

Option2: Lose my dpp swing with Moore and
Burgess which has been ultra helpful
(Moore for Whitfield and possibly
Dangerfield this week). Have no fwd/mid
swing.

Option 3: Think Duursma (d5 or 6) provides good
backup atm. Also have Hore, Lockhart
and currently Burgess.

Guess another option would be Petrucelle to Larkey and then Gibbons to Fyfe. This would probably be the most ideal option but Larkey's 40 last week doesn't install me with confidence but then the JS of Answerth and Hately are questionable but with their performances they shouldn't be.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Beezneez

Option 3 above should just be Duursma to Answerth and Gibbons to Fyfe. My bad getting carried away with dpp swings.

JohnDJ59

I like option two, Petrucelle is ready to be traded as is Gibbons. If Constable isn't named for this weekends game, option one.

Beezneez

Thanks JohnDJ. Constable not playing would make it easier but we could have the doubt over late in/out with Danger. Team selection will be the key.

JohnDJ59

That's just it Beez, if Danger misses, Constable would have to play.

Tommo09

Corbett or Answerth?
If they are named

Ja191

Anseworth. Corbett is a forward at gold coast

The Ranger

If it's a straight choice then Answerth but I'm not seeing a lot of fwd rookies coming thru and Corbett would seem to have reasonable JS.

Shake_n_bake

RIP Lou black n white thru & thru. 😞

Whitchyyy

Thinking of going Clarke and Butters down to Answerth and Hately instead of painting the fence. No decent rookies will be on the bubble next week, and we have been given two rookies who seem to be capable scorers and should make decent coin before the byes, assuming they get named this week and keep their spots. Anyone else thinking the same?

Yeahnah

I've got the same idea, except Corbett and Answerth for Scrimshaw and Petrucelle. Looking at the rookies that played their first game last week, the pickings are very slim. Going double downgrade this week allows for double upgrade next week.

Gainsy

Not looking at hately as much as answ but i like the thought

JohnDJ59

Hi Whitchyyy, If both Answerth and Hately are named they will be hard to pass up, I kind of hope only one is as I really need to upgrade my midfield, since I started really shallow there due to there being so many good rookies and went deep in the fwd line.

BrownlowBoy

If both named both will be coming into my team.

The Ranger

Bit worried about Hatelys job security, Kelly and Whitfield are still to come back in.

Maverick_

If hately can be named with both whitfield and kelly's return weekend. lock!
I missed stack and baker worrying about there JS not making the same mistake here

Nozzy

Is it worth getting rid of Drew in order to get in Fyfe seeing as Wines is out?

Gainsy

No

TommyC99

Which 2 trades are more important this week?

1. Scrimshaw – answerth
2 gibbons – hately (could do answerth instead)
3. Libba – Fyfe/boak
4. Petrucelle – Corbett

Gainsy

1 2 4 3

Maverick_

if hatelys named
1234

if not
1342

Lazza

We need 3 trades this week … problem is beyond this week it’s hard to see where the next downgrades are coming from. Do not miss any downgrades .. so any of 1,2 or 4 ahead of 3.

Gibbs

Tossing up my forward Trade in this week, at the moment locked in on Caleb daniel but unsure about Boak. Is he worth the extra 80 k it would cost to get him in? Averaging 118 can he keep it up, or will he likely finish closer to 110?

Derek

Boak will average more than 100 from here on. That will put him in top 6 forwards. Only decision is when to get him. He is probably at his max price so you don’t need to get him this week or even before his bye. But after Crows he has Suns, Hawks and Saints. I’ll want those points

Gainsy

Anyone looking at Menegola?

TommyC99

I would be if he didnt have the round 13 bye

14.9k left anything i cn do to imprive my team ranked 50k overall

Gainsy

2 or 3 good rookies on the bubble this week. Have you thought about trading out a rookie that has almost peaked in price and bringing 1 or 2 of the bubble rookies?

Derek

Clarke and Petruuclle out

Corner and Answorth in.

Build up your war chest

If Whitfield and Josh Kelly come back this week, and Hately is still named, who's job would he be taking to stay in the side long enough to make good money?

Dan

It's a good question.
It also makes me wonder if Hately is named and Josh Kelly isn't, should we still trade in Hately? Or will his j/s be too risky?

Jezzaa

Cant offord Boak but undesicive on Cameron,C.Daniel or Mundy??

Any thoughts?

Russty_

Daniel's on a pretty good run, I might wait and see if Boak has a bad game or 2 and drops in price.

Gainsy

Oldman mundy for me.

Derek

Blakely will be back this week, will hurt Mundy

Brn

Suckling back will hurt Daniel. I like Mundy best

Russty_

Maybe but not so sure Brn, Daniel and Suckling played together in the 1st 4 rounds and Daniel still averaged 103.

Gainsy

From talking to a few weekend warrior mates one theory is that the 6-6-6 rule favours some older blokes… something about outsmarting and not just having to be gut running all the time… might be the rise of the 30+ year olds

Braz

Any keepers under 550k right now?

Russty_

Which line are you talking about Braz?

Gainsy

Ryan, rich (if you rate him), McLoving mcgovern
CalebD, mundy, kelly, dangerfield, heeney, dunkley
Pendles, s.congoline, oliver, shuey (if), rocky (if)…..
I mean theres a host of others too.

FeverVFX

Need a bit of help with my current team

D: Whitfield, Smith, Witherden, Hore, Duursma, Scrimshaw (Clark, Ainsworth)
M: Cripps, Treloar, Fyfe, M Crouch, Parker, Rockliff, Walsh, Drew (Atkins, gibbons, Hayes)
R: Grundy, Goldstein (O’Brien)
F: Danger, Kelly, Billings, Dahlhaus, Moore, Baker (Bolton, Wicks)

Used 1 trade which was trading liberatore to Ainsworth and I’ve now got 350k in the bank to spend $$$

Derek

I would trade Clark before Libba

FeverVFX

Went clark to Ainsworth then Libba to macrae so I reckon they are good trades

Cindy

Thinking of off loading Libba but undecided on who to get Neale, Boak or the Bont I can afford them or us there someone else that would be better suited.

FeverVFX

Macrae or Oliver maybe?

Ktfg

What are your thoughts on Libba? Upgrade or hold?

Maverick_

If both named I’m looking to double down too answerth/hately from two fat cows. If only one is named though I’ll paint the fence libba to Fyfe/bont. His job role has changed

Ktfg

Yeah that's what I was thinking. Going up to bont
