Whether you choose a loophole or not, it is always good to consider which club(s) offers the best loophole options for the year, in case you decide at the last minute you want one. As last year proved, Tony Olango was worth his weight in gold; and he was a big unit! The table below shows all clubs’ Sunday fixtures, Round by Round, for the AFL season 2019. Those highlighted in yellow indicate that they were also the FINAL game played that week.
This year it appears that the most appropriate team for your loophole is Fremantle. For those Rounds that Fremantle are not playing on a Sunday, they are either playing the last game on the Saturday night (3), or give you numerous (4+ teams) and favourable (eg 1+ of COL, MEL, HAW, WBD) options with daylight to spare (ie sufficient time to address your C/VC options). There are just two rounds where this is not the case. Rounds 11 and 17 offer limited options and these are:
– RD 11 – NTH or RIC players only (not ideal), and
– RD 17 – COL or WCE players only (better options)
Obviously the Rd23 fixture times and dates are not confirmed until much later in the year, but I hope you agree this is pretty much as good as it gets. Especially when you consider there are two loophole options at the basement price AND with DPP (offering you added flexibility at the trading table). They are:
Tobe WATSON (DEF/MID), $102 400 &
Jason CARTER (DEF/MID), $102 400
Unfortunately, Lloyd MEEK (RUC) is priced at $123 900 this year.
Would be interested to hear if my fellow Coaches have differing opinions on this………..
