Break Evens

Written by Motts on 9:30 am, April 28 2011

Received an email from first year coach, Dazza, this morning:

“Can you give me a heads up on the whole break even thing. I am trying to work when the best time/ price is to start upgrading the rookies is it when their break even is high/low or about even.”

For the benefit of all coaches I thought I’d share my response.

A player’s BE is the score he has to get in the next game to stay at his current value. Looking at Alan Didak as an example, his price this week is $412,700.

Rookie Review Round 5

Written by Big Sexy on 6:07 am, April 27 2011

Apologies for the short write-up due to combination of a short footy week, a SC league Bye week and I’m back at work having had a few weeks off and in catch-up mode. Anyway, I thought I’d rush this info out for anyone looking at rookie trades before Thursdays game.
My Top Five Rookie’s (<$200k) of the week:
1) B Matera (Fwd 192k) Scored 127, average 71.
2) B McCauley (Ruck 91k) Scored 88, played just the two.
3) J Polec (Mid 168k) Scored 81, also just played the two.
4) L Thompson (Def 103k) Scored 78.

Hawthorn v Geelong

Written by Duck on 11:44 am, April 26 2011

Last game of what feels like a massively long round of footy. Who’s your money on today and who will you be watching?

I’ve got 5 players remaining and have tipped the Hawks to get up, which will give me 6 out of 7 if they do …. come one the Hawks!

Its a little unrelated but I’d just like to wish all our readers a very happy 5 days off (and Easter if you’re of a religious persuasion).

I truly hope all your teams go bananas this weekend!

Thanks to all of you for continuing to come back to the site. We value each and every one of you.
