This is one of the darkest days in the TEAM‘s short history. We had an absolute Barry Crocker last week, scrambling to just 1290 pts from 16 players. Just to highlight the current predicament of the TEAM, we are currently sitting in only ONE Top8 from TEN leagues………..
(League #10 – 15th)
With no great consensus on trading options last week, I had to make a few executive decisions. Since our cash generation is suffering a touch, I decided to get a few warm bodies on the field in Austin (STK) & Mihocek (COL). The TEAM as it currently stands……….
At first glance it would seem like we had 18 players to choose from this week…….but we need to take into account Laird (injury), Duman (form), Fogarty (form), Barry (form), Olango (loophole) & Walters (suspension)…….another rough week coming up.
Nearly time for a Hail Mary pass otherwise we’re destined for mediocrity in 2018. I’m open to all trade suggestions at this stage, Coaches. There’s a bit of cash in the bank……get creative……think outside the box……if the Coaching Staff approves (Thumb UP/DOWN) then we’ll put it to a vote after teams are announced (any Port/Dogs players need to be added before Thursday night). Let’s hear it, Coaches…………

I was a little slow on the up-take this week with the short turnaround 😉 Are there any Port/Dogs players that we HAVE to trade in before the game starts tonight? If you don’t think so, simply answer NO in the following poll. I’ll only bring a player in if there is a clear majority. Otherwise, the regular poll will be up later tonight. Thanks, Coaches!
Does the TEAM need to bring in any Port/Dogs players today?
- YES (55%, 22 Votes)

**UPDATE on 15/6/18 at 9am**
Apologies for making changes to the TEAM last night but selections forced my hand a little (and there’s only that one hour to act). Due to his popularity in our poll yesterday, I brought in Robbie Gray to our FWD line who performed admirably with 120-odd.
Official changes were Spargo, Fogarty & Duman OUT for L.Ryan, Giro & Robbie Gray IN. Even with those changes, we’re still only on 16 player for the Round…….the Byes have not been kind to us!!
That makes the choice of Captain even more important. Please vote below for your choice………..
Thank you, Coaches!
