** POST HAS BEEN UPDATED – POLLS HAVE BEEN ADDED, GET YOUR VOTES IN!!! ** (14.4.16, 7.40pm)
If you’re reading this, then you are part of the TEAM. Up to 300 Coaches have been consistently voting on our TEAM polls, shaping it to the formidable line-up it is today.
Rd3 Score – 2301
Overall Ranking – 4682
League Wins – 5 / 10
Remaining Trades – 28
Remaining Cash – $114 100
Trade History –
Rd2: Tom Rockliff to Luke Parker & Michael Barlow to Jason Johannisen (via DPP)
We may have dropped a touch in the Rankings but it’s nothing to panic about. We’re only 140-odd points away from the Top1000. When I look at the TEAM right now, I don’t see many problem areas. Our midfield rookies in Menadue, Gresham and Dunkley worry me a little, but I’m not in a rush to trade them out this week given the lack of rookie options ‘on the bubble’.
As far as backlines go, I think ours is fairly stable and the Cash Cows there simply need more time. Our midfield is strong. We have five of the best midfielders going around at the minute (plus Libba). While our rucks will miss Goldy for the year (or most of it), Gawn and S.Martin have started reasonably well and should both be right up there in the Top3 Rucks for 2016. Forward line looks a bit risky now with so many rookies but their job security looks fairly stable.
I’ll keep it short and sweet this week. I see no need to trade with THE TEAM before Rd4. My opinion may change after teams are announced on Thursday night but I’d HOLD for now.
If you have any trade suggestions, please place the name of the player (ONLY!) in the comments below. Now that the thumbs are working properly again, we’ll let them decide. T/U for TRADE, T/D for HOLD. If anyone is to be traded out (will need min. 50 thumbs considering the overall number of Coaches involved), then we’ll put it to a poll on Thursday night. Be sure to check back on the post again after 8pm on Thursday night for our regular polls (emergencies, Captain and so on). Thank you, Coaches!
UPDATE (14.4.16, 7.40pm)
Judging by the reactions below, HOLDING trades is the way to go this week. I agree, they’ll come in handy later on and we can cover comfortably for this week.
Given the reaction to Motts’ suggestion in comments, I’ve moved Adams to the forward line and Kerridge into the midfield. It’s left us with a few Emergency Loophole options. Now there are a few slight adjustments to make. Please vote on all of the following six polls (regardless how you may have voted on certain polls). Thank you, Coaches!!
Josh Dunkley (WBD) can be used as Emergency Loophole until Saturday night so we get a look at Ryan Davis’ score ahead of Callum Mills……..
Since Lincoln McCarthy (GEE) has been (unluckily) omitted, we can use him as Emergency Loophole for the Friday night game with Connor Menadue (RICH)……….
Should we automatically give Matt Priddis (WCE) the VC on Friday night against Richmond?
Regardless of your previous answer, who would you place as C for Rd4?
If we can use the Captains Loophole…………..
Thanks again, Coaches!!
