  1. There seems to be a lot of injuries. Don’t think this sub rule is working if it’s designed to reduce injuries.


  2. luke thompson in for otten still a good trade, and probably will do it.
    any thoughts on trading gilbert for anyone?


  3. Kinda happy that Cam Bruce is now injured. I like to stick by two rules:
    1 – If I pick a premium and I’ve made a bad call, I stick by the guy. Too few trades to be using them to change premiums.
    2 – I don’t use a trade on an injury unless it is reported to be at least 4 weeks.

    Rule 1 has forced me to stick by Bruce, rule 2 now gives me an out. If only he hadn’t lost all that cash…


  4. Heppell’s B/E is 55.
    If he gets his usual 70-90 he will probably only go up say another $10-20k. Is it worth waiting another week to upgrade/downgrade him. Or is he even a keeper?
    THUMBS UP- Stick with him. He’s averaging 91.
    THUMBS DOWN- Upgrade/Downgrade him this week.


  5. Looking through the premium forwards to upgrade and it is extremely slim pickings, lowest choice evr in SC:
    I have Goodes, Franklin, Nick Riewoldt and Pavlich.
    (Going for league)
    Chapman- Bye in finals
    Harvey- Bye in finals
    Steve Johnson- Bye in finals
    Cloke- Inconsistent
    Grundy- Inconsistent
    O’Keefe- Inconsistent
    Dawes- Inconsistent

    Fyfe is the only one that looks to be worth the money. However, how are we sure if he’s consistent enough? Is it just some hot form?
    Jack Riewoldt is another that looks good, but just because of his price. He too could be labelled inconsistent.
    Didak will be a bargain in weeks to come, but right now stay away.

    Because of the limited options, is it worth picking up a Chapman or Harvey and then trading them out come finals?


  6. Anybody have any news on when we can expect Ben Jacobs to play? He was highly regarded before his illness.


  7. Mundy as midfield keeper anyone? Only in 10,000 teams, surely with sandilands putting it down his throat like Nixon to duthie you can’t go wrong?


  8. okay, I want everyone to comment on this

    which cash cows are now keepers, which we should keep and then milk, and which to get rid of now??



  9. keepers

    calcium providers
    z smith
    gold coast rookies



  10. Have Rioli, Yarran & Higgins. Riolo & Yarran should b ok but am hearing groin problems for Higgins & given his past amd worried about him being out and also worried about him carrying an injury and not playing to his potential when he returns.
    Higgins to Fyfe (was going to go Chappy but dont want to have to trade out a premium during league finals)
    then next week upgrading Swallow to Swan / perhaps Mundy as a POD
    Have 471k in the bank at the moment

    Any thoughts?


  11. Looking to trade one of Higgins or Rioli this week to avoid a doughnut and to keep in the mix for my league.

    Thinking Rioli at the moment just because he will probably he out more.
    What do you guys think of
    Duigan -> Thompson
    Rioli -> Chapman?

    Thumbs up Yes
    Thumbs up No


  12. What’s everyone doing with Duigan?
    According to fanfooty his BE is 94…
    Should we trade him out now, or wait a week as he won’t go down to much and we’ll have more of an idea on rookies (Hibberd, Jacobs etc.)

    Thumbs up, trade him this round.

    Thumbs down, holding him for a week or so.


  13. hopefully jacobs or puopolo have a good first 2 weeks. will be a great downgrade target for toy and will bank a lazy 110,000 ๐Ÿ™‚
