GAJ Injury Concerns

Written by Duck on April 23 2012

While we wait on news regarding Gary Ablett, who faces scans for a possible posterior cruciate ligament injury, I thought I’d throw it out there and see what everyone’s thinking.

If he looks like missing 2 to 3 weeks or more, what are you going to do with him?

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

  1. I’ll be trading as his history of playing with injuries isn’t great. He wouldn’t keep up his average when he came back, which means he’ll drop in price before he gets better again

  2. 2 weeks or less keeping……..
    5 weeks or more trading …..
    The dilemma sits somewhere in the middle for me….

  4. i’ll only trade him if its really long term or something around 4 or 5+ weeks, he’s just to good to trade out, it would be a waste of trades (1 to trade out + 1 to trade in= 2 trades wasted) i’ve already used a fair few, so i don’t want to waste anymore, will wait until further news on him before i make a decision

  5. He could be out for 10 weeks and I would still keep him. But 2-3 is manageable. Depends if u going league or overall. I’ve worked out my next 3 league games are easily winnable. I going keep the best player of the decade!

  6. Will hang onto him, with Fyfe and Dempsey still in my team along with some other underperformers such as Martin have too many problems across the board to be trading him out at this point in time

  7. The SC Gods always provide one hot topic of conversation for each week.

    into Rnd 3 – Broughton
    into Rnd 4 – Fyfe
    into Rnd 5 – Ablett

    how will it be next week??

  8. Not sure about the Captain. Might make Watson, Pendlebury or Swan VC and then make a decision. Selwood has been doing well. He seems to thrive on the Geelong captaincy. Maybe he will do better with the Catattack captaincy. Still, there is every chance that he might get his head knocked off. Come on GAJ, we need a permacaptain, surely you can play this week?

  9. One of the most well pronounced rules of SC rings true yet again!

    Do not sideways trade a premium unless they have a Long Term Injury (LTI).

    Rd 3: Broughton > Dempsey/Birchall
    Rd 4: Birchall/Fyfe/Shaw > Carrazzo, Mumford > Sandilands

    I’m sure there will be people who have done all three of these trades.

  10. Ablett —> Treloar this week

    Magner —> Pendlebury next week

    Rookie —> Downgrade (maybe Neale)
    Rookie —> Ablett

    How does that sound? Maybe even a couple of hundred grand to go with that!

  11. I gave ya the thumbs up Ollie. It’s TRADE GAJ for me! Can’t afford to have all those ‘points’ on the bench for 3 weeks…what if it stretches out to 4 or 5 weeks?! Have $350k in the bank. Swap GAJ for Prem Mid, then when GAJ returns, do a double cash cow, (one up to Gaj- one down). Trade early! Trade aggressive!

  12. Heres a thought, why risk GAJ, he still has a good 3-4 years left in him, no need to rush him back, its not like they are gonna play finals this year.
    Personally I think he will come back against gws,

    Give Horsley a run!

  13. Why worry about Ablett ? Isn’t he “The son of God” and isn’t it just after Easter ? He will rise and play again !!!

  14. This might actually improve Gibbs scores? He has had a sluggish start, at least if he is tagging he will stay in the midfield.

  15. My new mantra “he’s fine… Ohm… Mmm… He’s fine..”
    2-3 I can deal with… anything more and well cya later.

    He’s staying in my team (albeit shouting captains orders from the sidelines).

    Will consider some of my saints boys VS. Melbourne this week to step in. Thinking Goddard at this stage for the big C.

    Hurry up Lippy we miss you already.

  16. guys dont panic. by now you should be settled on your premiums and rookies.

    dont go chasing shadows. keep the rookies until the average points per game is lower than their break even score. then they are nearing their peak $$ amount.

    i still think ablett is keen to get back after just 1 week. his preparation and recovery skills are second to no-one. if it is at possible to get back in a week, then gary can.

  17. To all the others sharing my predicament…..
    Keep Ablett and hope he just has 1 week off?
    Will Stanton (my obvious replacement for GAJ) score 140+ vs Pies?
    Is J-Mac a must buy (All my other rookies are making me stacks of cash already) !?

    Which option would you do?

    Which option would you do?
    Ablett + S.Reid –> Stanton + Dahlhous/Tippett (Im sick of Reid)
    Ablett + Shiel/Magner –> Stanton + Barlow (2 almost Premium mids)
    Shiel/Magner + Reid –> J-Mac + Dahlhous (Make some $$$)
    Sit tight on Ablett and just get J-mac in
    ————————————————————————————————

    Deledio, Suckling, M.Clarke, Hombsch, S.Morris, Dempsey (Bower, Ellis)
    Gazza, S.Thompson, S.Selwood, JPKennedy, Masten, Magner (Shiel, C.Smith)
    Sandi, Hale (Giles, Redden)
    Franklin, Dangerfield, Porplyzia, Goodes, D.Martin, Fyfe, Reid (Kennedy, Hall)

    20 trades left….
    $110k cash spare…

  18. Am I wrong but isn’t the idea of SC to build your $$$ up so your team is worth the most it can be. Using your trades to buy and sell into the best team players you can buy.

    Everyone has been talking about selling GAJ for Pendles/ Murphy or Judd. I’m trading GAJ for Mcdonald. Holding onto the $620k and watching JM bounce in price by around $200-250k in 2/3 weeks. Even though its two trades surely thats worth the coin???

    Fact is Mcdonald will make more cash in the next 3/4 weeks it may be worth the swap to him get the cash and then rebuy Gazza. He won’t got up nearly as much as Mcdonald will and you’ll be holding at least some decent points.

    No chance he’ll be rested either he’s already had two weeks off!

  19. I can see that – I agree $100k is normally my min too.
    Will need to do a bit more research into GAJ injury and amount of games out.

    Thanks – good feedback DS
