Cow Talk R20 –>21

Small or Far Away, Father Dougal on Cows

Hi Everybody!

This is going to be the last Cow Talk of the season. We’re at the point where predictions really don’t matter. If I think of anything clever-like I’ll go ahead and write it up, but, at this point I think my brain wants to watch footy and drink beer without having to, well, think.  Plus, I can’t even get the hamster to contribute even for Pumpkin seeds! So, time to put my imaginary interlocutor into “The Box” where he can wat for next season.

The, the box? Um, maybe not the Box, please not the Bo…..

Right, so all wrapped up. Aside from the Cow requested last week, which are below.

Oh, Matt asked about the value of rookie corrective trades and really corrective trades in general. That is a great question. I’ve written a bit about it before, but I have never done a proper analysis. I’m gonna at least take a shot over the off season. I never seem to have much luck at big projects during the season, but maybe I can figure a way to figure that out before we care again. 











Dodgy Advice:  Hamsters make great pets, as long as you don’t teach them about Supercoach.


Remember the Cow Talk guarantee: “All predictions wrong or triple your money back!”  (Offer not valid if money is actually involved.)

I am time-zonally challenged.  When Cow Talk goes live I’m probably asleep, so replies from me may take a while.

Thanks for reading!

  1. Another consideration with rookie corrective trades, is that after R2 we’re less likely to need ‘must have’ rookies than almost any other part of the season, as our side is already half-full with cows. Sure it’s nice to have them all, but with plenty of cash coming from multiple cows, can you afford to skip a Jordan or Powell type?

    The flip-side is you get greater compounded benefit from a trade in R2, than having a luxury trade in R23.

    Anyway, love your work FD – the most unique reading across all SC each week. Thanks for your incredible generosity again this year.
