Motts Movers R4 – The Forwards

Written by Motts on April 20 2010

OK by now everyone knows about James Podsiadly. Big Sexy’s mentioned him, Duck mentioned him months ago and then reminded us that he did today, he’s been in the papers, on the Monday night talkies, Christ you’d think he knocked off Carl Williams. So I’m not going to mention him again but if you need a forward this week, GET PODS!
The blokes you should be looking to trade for him if you have them are:

T Lockyer ($420,300, 67.5) – Was very good last year – I know because I had him. Finished the season with a 93 average. Has virtually dropped $38k 2 weeks in a row. Is it time to stick a fork in him?

T Hawkins ($323,800, 58.0) – This spot could have been taken by either Tommy or Tippy. Tomahawk got it because of the uncertainty in this punter’s mind of his future at Geelong now that J-Pod is up and about in the forward line.

M Hahn ($357,700, 60.75) – We never expected too much from Mitch but his price was calculated on last season’s 73 average. The 33 he scored up north last week dropped his price another $22k. If you’re on him, get off now!

Tippett (again!), Gumbleton, Ballantyne, M Williams, L Brown and Porplyzia all came into consideration for this section this week.

The blokes you should be hanging onto for dear life:

R Houlihan ($450,500, 104.0) – I refute all allegations of favouritism here because he has the 5th highest average of all Forwards right now. The names in front of him are Brown, Chapman, O’Keefe, and Pavlich. Fair old company to be in. Shocking month ahead though with the Cats, Pies and Saints to come.

D Thomas ($435,300, 100.25) – I scoffed when I saw him in Richo’s team at the start of the year. I mean, after all, he’s always promised so much and delivered so little. Well, he’s like my local Thai place these days, baby: delivering on a weekly basis. Last week’s 132 was brilliant. Wish I’d seen it. Was at the game but with all the free drinks Bobcat was pouring down my throat I got a little boisterous. Not angry boisterous. Fun boisterous. Either way I wasn’t watching the footy. His next 3 games are all at the G against Essendon, Carlton and North. Expect to see that average rise.

Eddie Betts ($415,700, 96.5) – Carlton’s 4th highest goalkicker has managed 6.11 in the first four rounds – can you imagine what he’d be scoring if he was just able to convert a couple more of those goals? Has missed the ton just once so far this year which means at this price that you have to consider him (although admittedly he does have a tough few rounds coming up).

Other players I thought were great this week were Chapman, Pav, and Brennan. If you’ve already got Pods, get on Rockliff.

  1. Currently hurting from the ‘double burn’ effect of last year having Betts and Thomas, and then avoiding them this time round.

  2. Are we all agreed that both Pods and Rockliff are equally safe bets to play enough games and score enough points? I have neither yet (damn) but I’m not going to use 2 trades to get BOTH of them. Can anyone argue for any difference between them?

  3. Murph’s score of 19 puts him in the gun this week, he’s only saving grace was his 130 against the Maggies in round 1. In he’s last 3 games he has only managed 58 ppg, quite disappointing for my liking and it’s going to be a toss up between him and Hally for my Rocky trade.

  4. PS if I had done that last week, I would have smashed the chick in my secondary league who beat me by 23 points 🙁
    yeah, I’m a little bitter, and not exactly the smartest thing I ever wrote… ‘ummm like….if I’d made this perfect trade last week, I would have got like a higher score’

  5. I know that Rocky and PODS are the latest fad (given this week’s pricew increase) however I’d still like them to have some decent length of tenure before comparing them to Peterson and Duncan who’ve shown scoring ability over four rounds. What does everyone think about the four’s job stability???
