BS Rookie Review Round 2

by Big Sexy on April 11, 2012

My Top Five Rookie’s (<$200k) of the week:

1)    J Giles (Ruck 126k) In short – if you don’t have him, get him, NOW!  (Scores: 88 and 100)

2)    J Magner (Mid 94k) Again, if you don’t have him, get him….. NOW!

The bargain of the year has scored 104 and 90 in the first two rounds respectively.  He’s a 23yo mature age recruit which is gold when it come to SC.  Magner is a hard nut, an antagoniser and can play the game, so get on board if you aren’t already.

3)    A Kennedy (Mid/Fwd 113k) Kennedy has the dual position bonus and was one of the stand-out rookies for GWS on debut picking up 28 disposals, and backed it up in round two with another 23 disposals scoring 104 and 67 in his first two hit-outs.  He turns 20 this year so is slightly mature age, and was recruited from the Western Jets.

4)    T Milera (Fwd 124k) Ok, so his first up matches were against Port and the Suns so hard to get a real gauge on his ability, but the numbers don’t lie.  Milera has had 17 and 15 disposals in his first two runs which resulted in very solid scores of 85 and 86 means his price is set to rise.  So whilst I’m not particularly convinced he’s the next big thing, I am toying with bringing him in for Pfeiffer who’s giving me doughnuts on the pine depending on who’s named this week.

5)    T Mohr (Def 124k) or Bugg (Def 113k)  After a little internal debating as to which one of these GWS defenders to give a mention on the honor board, I’ve decided to split the difference and put them both up.  Mohr has had 16 and 10 disposals in the first two weeks respectively, followed by scores of 86 and 49.  Where as Bugg has had 27 and 18 disposals in the first two weeks respectively which resulted in scores of 88 and 57.  My advice to you:  If you are looking for defender and don’t have one of these, then get the other one.

Macdonald is a keeper if you have him…. if not, wait two more weeks until he serves out his suspension and plays his second game.

I don’t really rate Dickson or Paine…. but not sure if everyone has same view on that one.

Also, I did want to through it out there that I saw Smedts live on Monday and he has genuine pace, and showed som real dash. He has a great kicking style and i think will be a really good player. He was caught unaware a couple of times, but for a second game rook, that will happen and he will learn from it. His scores haven’t set the world on fire, and I don’t have him in my team but I think he is the real-deal and if he stays fit and will play plenty of games this year.

Scott apparently loves him as well BS…I agree with above

Dickson is a big unit that was much better this week in less than a quarter…Apparently he is a dead eye dick in front of goals ( although he missed a sitter against WCE). VFL mature aged player… He’ll also get better and keep playing imo( doggies need goalkickers)…

Morris with a healthy 75 looks lively after a poorer round 1 ..That Morris to Mohr trade looks like a bit of a waste( very popular rd1) Mohr still better value yes but is it worth a trade?????

the argument you use is that buddy gives out more free’s than he gets which is fine if it had any relevance to the fact that all the free’s he receives are soft. they brought in the chopping arm rule to stop players tugging on arms not accidental contact during a marking contest… #YOUKNOWBUDDYGOTSOFTFREES

If you check my first comment Socksy you’ll see that with the use of the technical term “tiggy touchwood” I am readily admitting there was nothing in the three free kicks on the weekend. They were the kind of horrible “technically correct” decisions that can kill good games of footy when you start focusing on the umpires.

None of that changes the fact that Buddy has a terrible record with the umpires and my gears get pretty quickly ground when people jump on any opportunity to try to bring down a champion.

What we should be focusing on is Joel Selwood’s continued cheating that has now cost an honest footballer a week in the game.

Who are your other FWD rookies. If you’ve got someone you’re not happy with there then move Smith forward and get the Magnet in. Or just do the straight trade. Either way, get the Magnet. A potential keeper at that price is a must have IMO.

Hey everybody :D
Long time reader, first time posting. Just like to thank all of you for your tips through pre-season.
I’m a bit stuck at the moment. I picked up Hall (GCS) and he has been a bit of a let down (55, 30)
So I want to trade him for a more promising rookie forward before the prices change this round.
At the moment I’m thinking of bringing in either A Kennedy (GWS) or T Milera (STK). Also note that I also have D Smith in my forward line up,
Thumbs up: Milera > Hall
Thumbs down: D Smith > Hall

I like your first trade but Ledger is out for me Davo. I was hoping he would get time v the Suns but it was not to be. I have been tossing up whether to bring in M.Clarke, or Greene or Milera. I decided against having 5 ‘rookies’ in the backline. I think Green is a good option but I like the idea of having flexibility with a F/M in the middle. I think Milera’s scores are solid and JS seems ok plus he plays the Dogs and Dees in the next month.

So my trade this week: Ledger to Milera (Fyfe into the middle)

Guys another good supercoach site is Jock Reynolds. Jock’s mantra is…to trade sideways is to burn a trade.

Worth keeping in mind.

A bit off topic and bias as yes, I am a Geelong supporter… But come on, when you watch Joel Selwood attack the ball, Head first, over the ball… He’s a man possessed and he’s a little gem and sure he’ll lift your arms to get some head high contact, but fuck if the kids willing to take some hits to the head for a kick of the football, he’s got some determination and balls… I love the way he goes about the field and his attack at the ball, and shit just give him a brownlow ’cause he deserves it more than some tattoo covered drug addict #MANCRUSH

Adjust and tinker only where *absolutely* needed at first- at the max 3-4 trades in the first 5/8 rounds- hold fire as much as you can. Wait for the bloody injuries or suspensions, they WILL come. Also keep an eagle eye out for who is in your opponents’ teams. I don’t think there is a hard and fast rule to trading, each season is different and you just want to minimize damage to your original team. Sometimes this does mean trading out under performing premiums, sometimes it means an initial swap to the ‘right’ rooks you missed. During the middle of the season you will find players where their form is too good to argue with. Same goes towards the end of the season as teams get more desperate for finals. Then there are the coaches resting players- likely to happen in the multi bye rounds and the final round or two ala Hawks last year and pies midseason trip to Arizona. Good luck -it can be very frustrating but good things come to those who wait. The fact we don’t get many trades is what makes it hard but also rewarding when you do make the right decision and stick to your gut feelings.

Decided that Milera isn’t worth a trade, Hall and Dickson can earn me there 150 K then I can give them the flick.
With 1 trade already done, is it worth trading Yagmoor out, say for Mohr?

Thumbs up – Definitely ! he is king potato, what made you select him?

Thumbs down – No way, a trade isn’t worth a player who will make you 150 K.

Is it just a coincidence or are all the teams doing well in these first 2 rounds just have the 1 premium and 3 rookies in their rucks? Seems to be paying off for them which is annoying as I went the set and forget strategy and it is backfiring, as Giles is scoring as well as any other ruckman.

Got a mate whose team is firing with 4 rookie rucks. Giles and Redden are doing well and he’s had all that extra cash to splash elsewhere. Seriously, he could leave his team as is and still win most leagues. Scary!!

Couldnt help it , A. wanted to grab some cash, B.Feel that Scotland is distracted , and Dusty is having his second year blues.
Traded out Scotland from DEF, and took Burgoyne from my MID to DEF.
Traded out Dusty (MID)
Then traded in Mastern into MID and Stanton into MID.
Hopefully Lyon will make Barlow a sub again this week and his price will drop and I will replace him with Luke Parker next week.Will put my cue i the rack after that and trade only when necessary.
WC playing GWS and ESS playing GC so both new recruits should score well.

I could be wrong but I think he said it kinda as a joke seeing as dusty was still good last year but not doing so well at the moment, meaning he has his 2nd year blues this year not as in he’s in his second year but he’s form is down.

L. Brown out for A. Kennedy.

I’m tempted to get Milera at Dickson’s expense. But I have cripps and he’s starting on the field whereas Milera is named on bench, so I’m not really sold on Milera cos I’m guessing the St. Kilda rates Cripps ahead of Milera, and his 1st two opponents weren’t hard for him to play on.
