  4. This is doing my head in. Rioli or Martyn and why? I’m leaning towards Martyn but he has a tough first five games, but when I go Rioli I think of injuries and how he will get rested later on. Your thoughts please.

  6. Will the captaincies handed to Swallow, Trengove & Grimes increase their chances of making your team? How many captains do you have now?

  7. Thoughts on Darren Pheiffer from Port?? Previously listed with Carlton and the Crows, and apparently burned it up in SANFL last couple of years. $126k, worth a shot??

  8. A very rough team so far
    DEF: Goddard, Deledio, Broughton, Adcock, Lake, Stratton, M.Clarke (Smedts, Morris)
    MID: Ablett, Mitchell, Hayes, Christensen, Wingard, Treloar (Kavanagh, McDonald)
    RUCK: Leunenberger, Renouf (Giles, Stephenson)
    FOR: Franklin, Fyfe, Gray, McGlynn, J.Brown, Porplyzia, Zorko (Saad, Walsh)
    As I said very rough. Thoughts and opinions? I have $220k left in the bank so what are some good downgrade and upgrade options?

  9. Motts, I’m now going with grimes on the back line but trengrove has a bye with Pendles, swan and selwood all who I’m considering. Swallow is an option but I’ve left the round 11 teams as my upgrade options after the bye. I hope that makes sense because I tend to confuse myself. 🙂

  10. RATE MY CURRENT SC TEAM:
    633K STILL IN BANK

    BACKS: B GODDARD, B DELEDIO, M SUCKLING, B LAKE, M CLARKE,T MOHR (W SIERAKOWSKI, L BROWN)

    MIDS: G ABLETT, S MITCHELL, J SELWOOD, M BARLOW, L HAYES, D PFEIFFER (D SHIEL, T MITCHELL)

    RUCKS: T WEST, H MCINTOSH ( J GILES, T DERICKX)

    FORWARDS: N FYFE, D MARTIN, P DANGERFIELD, J BUTCHER, A SAAD, D ZORKO, A TRELOAR ( B SMEDTS, J LAMB)

    SUGGESTIONS??
    I am aware i have gone pretty cheap in the forwards, but i believe that there are a few that will play consistently and grow in value.
    i dont know about T WEST either, i originally had D COX but realised that i can save some money and get west because he will play due to Ottens retiring and Vardys injury

  12. Does anybody know how to use the watchlist this year? I know that if if click on a player you can add them to it, but how do you view your watchlist? Am I missing something obvious?

  13. Saad – Gimme the goss. Hearing that he could get a lot of time in the Saints forward line but know nothing of his history.

  14. Question: who do u guys think will be our next captain? Thumbs up Goddard Thumbs down N.Roo. Any other thoughts in comments. Interesting article in the Hun today apparently, I’m off to buy it now. Apparently they want an aggressive brand of attacking footy without he pure need for barking orders.

  15. Would help keep Goddard but I dont know his character. Leads by example but can he talk the talk? N Roo is proven in the role but I think he would “blossom” without the responsibility. SO Lets say Hayes/Joe (whomever has the better public Speaking suite), this year, Goddard VC moving into C at the end of the season. Loved Lenny’s TV stuff during last year. Think he would aquit well.

  16. One of the most painful decisions im going through this year is:

    Barlow, Hayes or Cooney? I reckon i have changed my mind about 50 times – but i definitely want one of them. Nicky Dal is a certainty for me – so that might be enough for me to not take Lenny because of the bye; Barlow – new coach & structures so always hesitant; and Cooney is just the worst of the lot so im hesitant to pick him up too. Im thinking if i take Lenny i’ll upgrade him later in the year so the bye may not even affect me much, but i still cant make up my damn mind!!!

    Thoughts??

  19. BEST PLAYER TO ELECT AS CAPTAIN FOR THIS YEAR?
    ABLETT DUE TO EFFECTIVENESS AND SHEAR NUMBER OF POZZIES?
    MITCHELL DUE TO HIS INSANE ABILITY TO BE NEAR THE BALL ALL THE TIME?
    A RUCKMAN?
    FYFE? BREAKOUT YEAR PERHAPS?

  28. Question for any bulldogs people here.

    Will Dale Morris being out of the side for the first few months of the season open up a chance for Talia to get some games?

    Will be interesting to see how that backline sets up this year.

  29. ” It will be assisted by the return of Ben Stratton and Stephen Gilham from injury and also hopefully the emergence of Jarrad Boumann, who’s another tall defender that can give some assistance”

    Sounds like hawk recruit boumann might be a good upgrade target during the year.

  31. This is the team as it stands, upgrade plans include pendles and buddy (hopefully they cop a little price degradation), thoughts and criticisms:
    Def: Scotland, Deledio, H Shaw, C Enright, Clarke, Ellis, Mohr (L Brown, C Heath)
    Mid: Ablett, Murphy, Priddis, Swallow, Hayes, K Stevens (J McDonald, T Mitchell)
    Ruck: Naitanui, Kreuzer (Stephenson, Giles)
    Forwards: Rioli, D Martin, J Brown, A Christensen, G Rohan, A Treloar, T Walsh (Smedts and Zorko)
    Probably taking a chance on some smokeys in the forward line and crossing fingers for MID to carry them. All feedback welcome. Mick
