Just the one trade over the weekend: Dan Butler to James Stewart. I very nearly wielded my ‘Executive Power’ and brought in Rance for Otten. I held back though, due to our Top6DEF poll before the season. Rance was about 8th on the list with just a fifth of the vote, so I let it slide.
We still had a decent weekend. The TEAM picked up 8/10 League wins and moved up nearly 5000 spots in the Rankings. Plus we still have 20 trades and $183k in the bank (very handy!). Our TEAM as it now stands………
OK, Coaches…….we’re up early again this week for two reasons. Rd10 starts on Thursday night at the Cattery & we need to adjust the TEAM for the Bye Rounds. As it stands right now, we are missing 13-4-10 players from the upcoming Bye Rounds (plus Eddy, Strnadica & Balic). Long story short……we need a few extra bodies on-field for that first Bye week (next week – Rd11) if possible.
My first instinct would be downgrading Balic to D.Lloyd/Greenwood & upgrading Marchbank to next best DEF premium (with a Rd12/13 Bye). Or downgrade Marchbank (maybe to McInnes?) and bring in Joel Selwood for Balic. Do they sound like decent options? You tell me…….anyone can make a suggestion in the comments below. Your trade ideas will be rated by the Coaching Staff (Thumbs UP/DOWN) and we should have new polls available by Wednesday night. So let’s hear those ideas of yours………
** UPDATE on 24.5.17 at 7.30pm **
Well, Coaches……..as is often the case, a surprise has caught us off-guard. Sandilands will miss this week and we need to cover him with Nankervis in the Ruck. It’s going to be a mad dash between teams being announced and the Lockout coming into effect on Thursday night. So I might need to wield some ‘executive power’ this week. I just need to know which direction we’re going in. And I could do with some of your trade ideas as a guide………….
And the usual Captains Poll……….
Thank you and good luck, Coaches!
