The Riewoldt Trade

Written by Motts on April 12 2010

Looks like Roo is going to be out for significantly more than 3 weeks. You can’t afford to leave him on the bench so who are you going to bring in for him?

Should the TEAM use a 2nd trade this week?

    1. Its a bit early in the week to be trading, scratch. Values don’t change between now and Friday. Why you getting in so early?

  1. I’m actually considering trading for Rockliff (depending on if he gets named this week) and then using the banked cash to upgrade a midfielder next week after the values of the rooks I have in the guts go up again.

  2. Brownie is clearly the best choice and also his price is still alright .Or you could go for a cheaper player such as Dangerfield or Murphy and bank a little cash for later.

    1. You’re not alone Scratcher. I have a massive trading problem too. My shrink suggested I get on to Dream Team first thing on a Monday morning and make my trades there. That way my SC team (which I care much more about) goes unscathed til later in the week. Give a try, works for me!

      1. I’m on the same program. Made 2 DT trades this morning, ditto last Monday morning.

        As for ROO……I am thinking about this potentially audacious trade

        Roo/Gia for Chappy & Grundy or Rioli or
        Roo/Med for Grundy & Rioli

        I’ve used 3 trades and think I can use this situation to increase my overall points, gain another 100pt averge. Then I can use the remaining 15 on upgrades/injuries.

        1. That’s a lot of trades early! Very risky.

          I’ve been caught out previously. You think it’s enough to cover. You say to yourself, no trades for the next 3 weeks. Then another key player goes down the next week, and you’re constantly stuck with rookies and out of form players on the park. It’s a slippery slope!

          1. I don’t disagree with you, Brad. I have one enforced change, the other is an idea that may or may not be beneficial. I am considering my options and may go a Roo for Chapman/JB/Rioli or Grundy trade. There is plenty of time before selection.

    2. a bloke in our leaguue traded Harvey out for Reiwolt & made him his captain. That will be hard to beat for “Bad Trade Of The Year”.
      Hey there’s an idea….Motts, how about setting up that catagory on here?

  4. drew petire is coming back this week i had him last year and was very good to me that will still leave me with a good amount of cash for later…

  5. Got JB last week, in the get Tippett outta here fiasco. Now confused on who the best option would be. I like the idea of putting in Rioli / Grundy / Ballentyne and pocketing cash for a Midfield upgrade. But I think I need a safe consistant performer as I already have HAll and Franklin .. So Pavlich or Chapman..?

    So confused..

  7. Dangerfield cleared of neck fracture April 12, 2010 – 11:01AM

    Adelaide young gun Patrick Dangerfield will have further scans on an injured neck but has been cleared of fractures.

    Dangerfield spent Sunday night in a Melbourne hospital after being crunched in a gang tackle as the Crows lost to the Demons at the MCG.

    The 20-year-old has been cleared of any fractures to his neck by initial CT scans but will have further scans on Monday, the Crows said.

    Adelaide will also assess the extent of injuries to key trio Nathan Bock (hamstring), Kurt Tippett (ankle) and Trent Hentschel (knee) on Monday after all were hurt during the Melbourne loss

    1. The neck is a very bad injury to have and I am speaking from experience. It affects your whole body! I will be trading him. In my opinion he will suffer from this all year.

        1. i dont see how thats a problem? Higgins is more a midfielder hall is basically the only go to forward murphy fits in just fine…its worked for me so far…the bulldogs are going to have more better days then bad ones so i dont see it bein a prob

  8. I’m thinking about trading Roo for a mid-priced FWD (probably Rioli or Buddy) then upgrading Masten for ROK as a MID/FWD so I can use him as an MPP with Ziebell.

    Still not sure how much emphasis to put on the MPP thang. Got all week to think about it, I guess.

  9. Volt and Dangerfield Out?

    Which Options is best? (dream team prices)

    Brennan / Ballantyne + 51,500 cash
    Brennan / Grundy + 19,000 cash
    PAV / Ballantybe + 19,400 cash
    Rioli / Grundy + 37,100 cash
    Boomer / Ballantyne
    Boomer / Grundy

    Too many options…

  10. BAH- people i want to trade this week ๐Ÿ™‚ / have a huge concern about

    Waite.
    Stanton.
    Roo.
    Bock.
    (seaby crap but will keep)
    and i am absolutely shitting myself i didnt do waite + bock to malceski + brown last week but kept 2 trades free….
    oh well, at least gray is back

    the most likely trades i think will involve Bock or Stanton or Roo

    Stanton good start to season, worried about two below 90 scores
    Stanton + Roo -> Rioli/Brennan + Judd + ?

    Bock + Stanton -> Malceski + Judd?

    Roo + Bock -> Malceski / Rioli?

    1. I didnt want to trade for brown ultimately because he is not very good at port and will come down in future and i like saving trades, and malceski is sorta injury prone…

  12. I’m most likely going Roo for RoK.
    But I’m not sure if I should make two trades again this week.
    Really wanna trade Campbell Brown for Malceski despite losing 48k on it.
    Also undecided whether to trade Buchanan for Peterson to make a ton of cash and strengthen my lacking forwards.
    Or Crowley for Bastinac to gain cash too.
    Which one do you guys think? Or should I just make the one trade?

  13. Already got ROK and Big Jono Brown so I was leaning towards Chapman then I saw the Pavalator get his Dockers over the line so now I am unsure…
    Don’t have any Collingwood players in my side so could also go for a Didak or Davis which would give a little extra cash in the bank….

  14. Magoo I think you should be fine getting murphy both he and higgins play more as mids and are both capable of picking up plenty of ball around the ground with stealing points off each other.

  15. Think I’ll hold off on trading Rooey and putting on one my bench players this week, that way I might be able to pick up a high scoring player who just had a bad game and get them at a cheaper price.

    1. thats what im might do aswell, i will be doing an in depth analysi of my rd1 opponents and i will weigh up my options. I’m thing of trading Rooey for Goodes, who has already lost 38k this week. his breakeven this week is 163 and i dont see that happening so i think i will wait another week. i will see though, might change my mind

  16. Should I hold off on trading Mitchell for Ablett? I’ve got the money to do it without using any other trades. I’d usually keep Mitchell because he is a premium, but I’m up against my mate first up who’s ranked in the early 600’s overall, he’s got no Ablett and there would be nothing better if I could shut him up early in the year.

    0

    0
    1. SC doesn’t reward a player who kicks it less than 40m to a contest. I’ve been scratching my head at how Mitchell can have so many disposals but not rack up the big scores and I reckon that might be the reason why. Having seen the Hawks’ last 2 matches I can certainly vouch for him being the king of the short chip.

      0

      1. He also turns it over a lot, which kills his scoring i think his had around 15 clangers in his last 2 games.

  18. im thinking of doing something a little diffrent

    trade riewoldt for fev
    and then trade medurst for cyril rioli

    i think that fev will pull out some big performance seeing that all the attention is on jono brown and you just cant see medurst getting the big points you rarely see him when you watch a collingwood game and fev has already gone down 50 thousand.

    the other option is not to trade anyone i already have a average of 2239
    and the person that im playin this week has a sub 2100 average and im pretty confident that i will come up with a win

    that is wat is going through my head at the moment wat is your opinion

    0

    0
    1. Reiwoltd is a premium, swap him for another premium. that is someone who will average 100+, not miss games and be in the top 10 forwards by years end. Medders will make money at some point – keep. Rioli in the same bracket as higgins chapman – they miss games.

      0

      1. well then the obviouse choice is brown but i dont really want to get brown everyone is going to get him
        how much money do you think medurst will make

        1. if the pies get on a roll against bottom 8 teams he can easy get to 450k. Goodes Pav ROK Brown all good choices over the long run

          1. Pump
            not sure where the love for Medders comes from as the only season he’s averaged over 61 is 2008 with 88 (his current BE.) Can’t see him getting anywhere near 450K as this will take three consecutive good scores. More likely Mick will lose patience and play McAffer IMO.

  22. should i trade out Roo for didak (already have ROK, Brown, Higgins, Harvey) then use that money to trade out Tippett from my ruck for Kreuzer? or i could swap Roo for Cyril then Tippett for Sandilands.
    my feelings are didak will be more consistent then cyril.
    advice would be great

    1. Cryril is a tackling machine which scores big in SC and can kick a bag now and then and Sandilands is Sandilands enough said.

  25. I was all ready to jump on Heath Grundy to try and grab some cash for the Tippett trade in the rucks to Sandilands but with the sharp decline in Tippett’s price I’m left in a little bit of a quandry. Using some form of SC logic I’ve come up with the following…

    Scenario 1:

    I trade in Jared Brennan for Riewoldt given that his price did not rise and will rise next week given that he maintains his current 111 average against the Dogs, a team that he generally goes well against and gain a possible premium forward in the process but could be a risk with the week suspension just served.

    Scenario 2:

    I trade in Grundy, Murphy, Rioli, Riemers or anyone else around the 400,000-425,000 mark and take a bigger risk assuming that these guys will continue their current form and avoid injuries well into the season.

    This of course ties in with a Tippett trade in my ruck division.

    If I go with Scenario 1 the Tippett trade is wide open given the ruck division’s prices as it gives me a choice of Kruezer, Jamar, Ottens…and about 10 others if I trade this week

    BUT

    if I hold off trading him and use Warnock off the bench for one week (Tippett’s price won’t decline any further and Robbie is due for a big one) I would be able to afford Dean Cox when his price drops the required $25000 next week who appears to be on the improve after a slow start to the season.

    Scenario 2 means I could trade Cox or Drew Petrie in this week for Tippett and gain a premium ruckman (albeit with Cox being due for another price decrease) or DPP in the process.

    Gut feeling tells me to go with Scenario 1. Would anyone in their right mind think trading in Cox next week to offset Tippett would be a good idea? And better yet does anyone have idea what he’d need to score to avoid dropping a further $25000 this weekend?

    Can the Blues Cruise please shed some objective (as possible) light on the potential of a Roo>Waite trade – particularly on your opinion as to how he’s going as I’m fully aware of the risk.

    Cheers

    1. Waite is going terribly, Deano. I’m even considering shipping him off if he doesn’t put up a ton soon. I’d wait until you see a good score from him before jumping on. How’s that for objective?

  27. Has there been any official count as to how many tears the Roo boy shed after the hammy went? Maybe this will give us a hint as to the weeks out when we compare them with the shoulder reco and his breakup with the Neighbours chic?

  28. I’m contemplating trading Riewoldt out for Carl Peterson, then trading Shuey for Daniel Cross to even out the differences in points scores. It’s basically trading Riewoldt for Daniel Cross and Shuey for Peterson, so maybe a waste of two trades? I just don’t knowโ€ฆ will make up my mind on Fridayโ€ฆ

    I already have Brown, Chapman, Franklin (lets hope he gets off), BBBH, Murphy, etc in my forward line. O’Keefe is my alternative.

    1. Can you afford to use 2 trades this week, I can understand your theory (if only Rooey was a DPP) but your going to need them at the end of the season. If you can then go for it.

  29. Yeah, I used two trades LAST week to cash in on the pre-Round 3 prices of both Maguire and Malceski, but of course I never planned on Riewoldt doing his bloody hammy. So inconsiderate of him!

    I might do Riewoldt for O’Keefe just to save on the one trade.

    Arghhhhโ€ฆ decisions!

  30. hey everyone,

    who would you trade for roo and dangerfield.

    I was thinking of trading roo for cyril rioli then trading dangerfield for higgins whats everyone’s thoughts on the trades???

    After this my forward line would be: Brown, ROK, Chapman, Higgins, Rioli, Grundy and Ziebell

    i have $300 left over

    0

    0
  31. i’m liking the Rioli option for roo
    but not 100% percent sure with higgins
    hes looking pretty good so far, but will he contine
    to post an average of around 100 for the rest of the
    season.

    0

  32. yep i think i’ll go for him the only other guy i was considering was harvey but i think higgins will be alot more consistent ๐Ÿ™‚

    Higgins: IN

  33. i traded roo, for r okeefe, i feel safe with rok, while brown was tempting, tho
    also traded gray from port, to get rioli

  34. Hi all, I’m considering 2 possible trades. Any comments appreciated.

    1. Riewoldt ->Peterson & Martin->GAJ
    Was always going to get GAJ in at some stage and the money from Riewoldt allows that now. Will stop me agonising over a captain every week too. Already have Bartell,J Selwood,Barlow,Gibbs,Mitchell so mids would be pretty sorted. 3 cats but 3 of the next 4 are at skilled so they should do very well.
    Forwards would need a bit of work later. Would have JB, ROK, Ballantyne, Hall, Gian, Ziebell, Peterson, Hitchcock, Gumb.
    Defense all good, Ruck a shambles.

    2. Riewoldt -> Rioli/Higgins/Brennan
    Only uses 1 trade and can save the money to upgrade to GAJ in the next few weeks. Hes looking good atm though. Dont look like he will drop much in price anytime soon.

    Trying to incorporate a trade downgrade of roo with an upgrade for M Clarke to Sandi which eliminates alot of the options for the former. I know you’ve traded him for crooze however my first SC rule is don’t trade a premium unless its an LTI. Are you convinced the Clarke success story from last year was an aberration due to rucking alone or is he trying to find his niche and will get back to 100+ ave?

  36. I’d like to put one out there that three weeks age would have had considerable merit but now sounds silly enough that he wasn’t considered in the ballot above.
    Robbie Gray
    I know the potential pitfalls of back related hamstring injury however given the medicos have insisted on three rounds out, I think the upside of a breakout player in the midfield and proven goalkicker is worth considering.
    UR thoughts???

    1. I’m bringing in Robbie Gray off the bench to replace Reiwolt, which saves a trade… Riewolts hamstring is good timing – especially now that Gray is fit and ready – and I don’t really see any standout premiums to bring in (I already have Brown, ROK and Chapman … and Hall)… So if I am going to trade this week it will be to replace Reiwolt with either Peterson or Rockcliff.

      Is it a good SC strategy to keep 750K+ in the bank for a rainy day?

      1. Cam
        Depends whether you’re looking at winning the car or your league. For the former, I’m advised that a policy of an increase of 15PPG should be used for each trade but with the latter it depends on who you’re playing after Rd 3 as th GF win is the pinnacle.

        1. Spooner

          No Duncan or Rohan but I am employing the 6 rookies in the midfield strategy (2 on the bench) for premium upgrades at the end of the year. (Barlow, Bastinac, Morabito, Jetta, Moles, Howlett)… All except Howlett (Bombers) are playing – Mitch Duncan looks impressive as a forward and I was considering Rohan but he didnt get a gurnsey in round 1…

          Deano

          I’m looking at the car not my league opponents from week to week… and so am prepared to take a few risks in that respect…

          I’m a bit of a novice so what does PPG mean? Points per game, I suppose… So each player traded in should bring an increase of 15 points per game on average? Am I on the right track here?

          This seems to mean that bringing in a rookie for Reiwolt – which will lose points in the short term – breaks with that policy…

          It can only work later on when upgrading a rookie who has gone from around 100,000 to around 300,000 to a premium…

          So that’s where cash in the bank comes in handy, which was my original question…

          I suspect there a lot of good rookies around this year (mids and forwards) and so this long-term strategy will do well later in the year… and I’m already on about 2100 average per round

          0

          0
          1. Makes sense Cam – I was thinking you could bring in a premium MID for Roo if you had a mid/fwd rookie on your midfield bench, but absent that I’d suggest you proceed with the Peterson trade and save your biscuits. You’ve decided to carry Gray this far – I’d give him a run and if his injury fails you have the money to make him a Higgins next week.

            0

            0
  37. Mids:
    Bartel, Dal Santo, Barlow, Swan, Gram, Martin (Trengove, Shuey)
    Fwds:
    Brown, Riewoldt, Higgins, Ballantyne, S. Johnson, Giansiracusa, Walker (Hitchcock, Gumbleton)

    I’m thinking Voldt for Rioli and Trengove for ROK.

    PS In case you’re wondering, the Medhurst question earlier tonight was for my dreamteam – this site provides way better comments than any dreamteam sites I’ve found!
    PPS If freakin Stevie J and Gia would fire I’d be a happier man!

    1. Spoons
      I’m no expert however consider the following:
      Roo is a premium and you’re downgrading to a pot. prem. with only one other uber in the side;
      You already have a solid MF and trading up Trengove prior to his capacity (he may even prove to be a keeper by Rd8) is wasting your preseason good selections.
      Would suggest you trade roo for ROK in the FWD line as there are plenty of MF upgrades just waiting for the rookie capacity prices to be reached.
      WRT Medders, doesn’t matter whether its SC or DT – neither give high points for hanging off a contest, getting the easy pill and then murdering it.

      1. All good points, thanks Deano. I’m basically locked on Roo for ROK, but also thinkin I can chuck ROK in the mid and therefore jump on the Riolio bandwagon for Trengove to catch his early price rise. Would mean Rioli starts on the field for Martin (I would guess ~30 points per game). You’re probably right though, ride the Trengove train for another station or two…

  38. What about Kyle Reimers? Over 100K cheaper than Cyril, kick goals and tackles. HIs average is good and his value will definitely go up. Just a thought, i can’t shake Cyrils injury from my mind, can’t help but think he might be a bit fragile?

  41. Been tossing and turning on this one since 8:50pm last Friday Night, finally after all the pros and cons I can’t look a gift horse in it’s mouth. Reg Grundy has been on fire avg 112 ppg and should continue with his hot streak even if his value has gone up by @ $50k His value should continue rising for a few more rounds, I reckon. It also leaves me with a extra $170k sitting in the kitty for a few upgrades down the road.

  42. Down to either Delish or Gray which will allow me to upgrade Clarke to Sandi and have some spare cash for the first rookie upgrade.
    Leaning to the former after last week’s free movement showing from Rolly and worried about the back related hammy issue.

The Riewoldt Trade

Written by Motts on

Looks like Roo is going to be out for significantly more than 3 weeks. You can’t afford to leave him on the bench so who are you going to bring in for him?

Should the TEAM use a 2nd trade this week?

  1. I’m actually considering trading for Rockliff (depending on if he gets named this week) and then using the banked cash to upgrade a midfielder next week after the values of the rooks I have in the guts go up again.

  2. Brownie is clearly the best choice and also his price is still alright .Or you could go for a cheaper player such as Dangerfield or Murphy and bank a little cash for later.

  5. Got JB last week, in the get Tippett outta here fiasco. Now confused on who the best option would be. I like the idea of putting in Rioli / Grundy / Ballentyne and pocketing cash for a Midfield upgrade. But I think I need a safe consistant performer as I already have HAll and Franklin .. So Pavlich or Chapman..?

    So confused..

  7. Dangerfield cleared of neck fracture April 12, 2010 – 11:01AM

    Adelaide young gun Patrick Dangerfield will have further scans on an injured neck but has been cleared of fractures.

    Dangerfield spent Sunday night in a Melbourne hospital after being crunched in a gang tackle as the Crows lost to the Demons at the MCG.

    The 20-year-old has been cleared of any fractures to his neck by initial CT scans but will have further scans on Monday, the Crows said.

    Adelaide will also assess the extent of injuries to key trio Nathan Bock (hamstring), Kurt Tippett (ankle) and Trent Hentschel (knee) on Monday after all were hurt during the Melbourne loss

  8. I’m thinking about trading Roo for a mid-priced FWD (probably Rioli or Buddy) then upgrading Masten for ROK as a MID/FWD so I can use him as an MPP with Ziebell.

    Still not sure how much emphasis to put on the MPP thang. Got all week to think about it, I guess.

    PAV / Ballantybe + 19,400 cash
    Rioli / Grundy + 37,100 cash
    Boomer / Ballantyne

  10. BAH- people i want to trade this week ๐Ÿ™‚ / have a huge concern about

    Waite.
    Stanton.
    Roo.
    Bock.
    (seaby crap but will keep)
    and i am absolutely shitting myself i didnt do waite + bock to malceski + brown last week but kept 2 trades free….
    oh well, at least gray is back

    the most likely trades i think will involve Bock or Stanton or Roo

    Stanton good start to season, worried about two below 90 scores
    Stanton + Roo -> Rioli/Brennan + Judd + ?

    Bock + Stanton -> Malceski + Judd?

    Roo + Bock -> Malceski / Rioli?

  12. I’m most likely going Roo for RoK.
    But I’m not sure if I should make two trades again this week.
    Really wanna trade Campbell Brown for Malceski despite losing 48k on it.
    Also undecided whether to trade Buchanan for Peterson to make a ton of cash and strengthen my lacking forwards.
    Or Crowley for Bastinac to gain cash too.
    Which one do you guys think? Or should I just make the one trade?

  13. Already got ROK and Big Jono Brown so I was leaning towards Chapman then I saw the Pavalator get his Dockers over the line so now I am unsure…
    Don’t have any Collingwood players in my side so could also go for a Didak or Davis which would give a little extra cash in the bank….

  14. Magoo I think you should be fine getting murphy both he and higgins play more as mids and are both capable of picking up plenty of ball around the ground with stealing points off each other.

  15. Think I’ll hold off on trading Rooey and putting on one my bench players this week, that way I might be able to pick up a high scoring player who just had a bad game and get them at a cheaper price.

  16. Should I hold off on trading Mitchell for Ablett? I’ve got the money to do it without using any other trades. I’d usually keep Mitchell because he is a premium, but I’m up against my mate first up who’s ranked in the early 600’s overall, he’s got no Ablett and there would be nothing better if I could shut him up early in the year.

  18. im thinking of doing something a little diffrent

    trade riewoldt for fev
    and then trade medurst for cyril rioli

    i think that fev will pull out some big performance seeing that all the attention is on jono brown and you just cant see medurst getting the big points you rarely see him when you watch a collingwood game and fev has already gone down 50 thousand.

    the other option is not to trade anyone i already have a average of 2239
    and the person that im playin this week has a sub 2100 average and im pretty confident that i will come up with a win

    that is wat is going through my head at the moment wat is your opinion

  19. listen this is how it goes riewoldt for brown
    and medhurst for boomer harvey

  22. should i trade out Roo for didak (already have ROK, Brown, Higgins, Harvey) then use that money to trade out Tippett from my ruck for Kreuzer? or i could swap Roo for Cyril then Tippett for Sandilands.
    my feelings are didak will be more consistent then cyril.
    advice would be great

  25. I was all ready to jump on Heath Grundy to try and grab some cash for the Tippett trade in the rucks to Sandilands but with the sharp decline in Tippett’s price I’m left in a little bit of a quandry. Using some form of SC logic I’ve come up with the following…

    Scenario 1:

    I trade in Jared Brennan for Riewoldt given that his price did not rise and will rise next week given that he maintains his current 111 average against the Dogs, a team that he generally goes well against and gain a possible premium forward in the process but could be a risk with the week suspension just served.

    Scenario 2:

    I trade in Grundy, Murphy, Rioli, Riemers or anyone else around the 400,000-425,000 mark and take a bigger risk assuming that these guys will continue their current form and avoid injuries well into the season.

    This of course ties in with a Tippett trade in my ruck division.

    If I go with Scenario 1 the Tippett trade is wide open given the ruck division’s prices as it gives me a choice of Kruezer, Jamar, Ottens…and about 10 others if I trade this week

    BUT

    if I hold off trading him and use Warnock off the bench for one week (Tippett’s price won’t decline any further and Robbie is due for a big one) I would be able to afford Dean Cox when his price drops the required $25000 next week who appears to be on the improve after a slow start to the season.

    Scenario 2 means I could trade Cox or Drew Petrie in this week for Tippett and gain a premium ruckman (albeit with Cox being due for another price decrease) or DPP in the process.

    Gut feeling tells me to go with Scenario 1. Would anyone in their right mind think trading in Cox next week to offset Tippett would be a good idea? And better yet does anyone have idea what he’d need to score to avoid dropping a further $25000 this weekend?

    Can the Blues Cruise please shed some objective (as possible) light on the potential of a Roo>Waite trade – particularly on your opinion as to how he’s going as I’m fully aware of the risk.

    Cheers

  27. Has there been any official count as to how many tears the Roo boy shed after the hammy went? Maybe this will give us a hint as to the weeks out when we compare them with the shoulder reco and his breakup with the Neighbours chic?

  28. I’m contemplating trading Riewoldt out for Carl Peterson, then trading Shuey for Daniel Cross to even out the differences in points scores. It’s basically trading Riewoldt for Daniel Cross and Shuey for Peterson, so maybe a waste of two trades? I just don’t knowโ€ฆ will make up my mind on Fridayโ€ฆ

    I already have Brown, Chapman, Franklin (lets hope he gets off), BBBH, Murphy, etc in my forward line. O’Keefe is my alternative.

  29. Yeah, I used two trades LAST week to cash in on the pre-Round 3 prices of both Maguire and Malceski, but of course I never planned on Riewoldt doing his bloody hammy. So inconsiderate of him!

    I might do Riewoldt for O’Keefe just to save on the one trade.

    Arghhhhโ€ฆ decisions!

    After this my forward line would be: Brown, ROK, Chapman, Higgins, Rioli, Grundy and Ziebell

    i have $300 left over

  31. i’m liking the Rioli option for roo
    but not 100% percent sure with higgins
    hes looking pretty good so far, but will he contine
    to post an average of around 100 for the rest of the
    season.

  32. yep i think i’ll go for him the only other guy i was considering was harvey but i think higgins will be alot more consistent ๐Ÿ™‚

    Dangerfield: OUT

    Higgins: IN

  34. Hi all, I’m considering 2 possible trades. Any comments appreciated.

    1. Riewoldt ->Peterson & Martin->GAJ
    Was always going to get GAJ in at some stage and the money from Riewoldt allows that now. Will stop me agonising over a captain every week too. Already have Bartell,J Selwood,Barlow,Gibbs,Mitchell so mids would be pretty sorted. 3 cats but 3 of the next 4 are at skilled so they should do very well.
    Forwards would need a bit of work later. Would have JB, ROK, Ballantyne, Hall, Gian, Ziebell, Peterson, Hitchcock, Gumb.
    Defense all good, Ruck a shambles.

    2. Riewoldt -> Rioli/Higgins/Brennan
    Only uses 1 trade and can save the money to upgrade to GAJ in the next few weeks. Hes looking good atm though. Dont look like he will drop much in price anytime soon.

    Trying to incorporate a trade downgrade of roo with an upgrade for M Clarke to Sandi which eliminates alot of the options for the former. I know you’ve traded him for crooze however my first SC rule is don’t trade a premium unless its an LTI. Are you convinced the Clarke success story from last year was an aberration due to rucking alone or is he trying to find his niche and will get back to 100+ ave?

  36. I’d like to put one out there that three weeks age would have had considerable merit but now sounds silly enough that he wasn’t considered in the ballot above.
    Robbie Gray
    I know the potential pitfalls of back related hamstring injury however given the medicos have insisted on three rounds out, I think the upside of a breakout player in the midfield and proven goalkicker is worth considering.
    UR thoughts???

  37. Mids:
    Bartel, Dal Santo, Barlow, Swan, Gram, Martin (Trengove, Shuey)
    Fwds:
    Brown, Riewoldt, Higgins, Ballantyne, S. Johnson, Giansiracusa, Walker (Hitchcock, Gumbleton)

    I’m thinking Voldt for Rioli and Trengove for ROK.

    PS In case you’re wondering, the Medhurst question earlier tonight was for my dreamteam – this site provides way better comments than any dreamteam sites I’ve found!
    PPS If freakin Stevie J and Gia would fire I’d be a happier man!

  38. What about Kyle Reimers? Over 100K cheaper than Cyril, kick goals and tackles. HIs average is good and his value will definitely go up. Just a thought, i can’t shake Cyrils injury from my mind, can’t help but think he might be a bit fragile?

  41. Been tossing and turning on this one since 8:50pm last Friday Night, finally after all the pros and cons I can’t look a gift horse in it’s mouth. Reg Grundy has been on fire avg 112 ppg and should continue with his hot streak even if his value has gone up by @ $50k His value should continue rising for a few more rounds, I reckon. It also leaves me with a extra $170k sitting in the kitty for a few upgrades down the road.

  42. Down to either Delish or Gray which will allow me to upgrade Clarke to Sandi and have some spare cash for the first rookie upgrade.
    Leaning to the former after last week’s free movement showing from Rolly and worried about the back related hammy issue.
