Byes? – Who cares with all the injuries you say?! Well, it is culling season, so these files will help your choices!
Here’s the latest versions of the Bye Planner files for your enjoyment / use / research folks, with data complete and accurate as of completion of round 9. There’s a couple of newbie rookies like Florenca now included on the site and here.
Your key tabs on the file(s) are the “Planner tab”, “Player Data tab” and for your ease, there are separate tabs listing out all the players in each position and rookies. I have also updated the Season Draw tab and updated the grid reference looking at clubs who are best to hold an NPR from, for looping – though with all the injuries that may not be an issue!
Yes folks, if you haven’t used these files before, you do need Microsoft Excel – sorry if you don’t have it. If you haven’t used the files before, refer to the attached Word document for some instructions. I have listed the players with negative BE’s in red and also those having played 2 games in red. HINT – you can check these out on the Player Data & other tabs by using the filters at the top of each column to check whatever stat you want. I will update these files again at least once more before the byes so that you have as much current data on all players in the weeks I update them.
Has everyone’s strategy changed now with all the injuries / outs? Will you be aiming to get to full premo by the end of the bye rounds … or holding rookies beyond the byes? Who on earth qualify as “guns” now in the FWD line – I’m looking at you Butters and Cogs!?
Help out the community with your thoughts folks and generate a discussion on the thread below!
And just a word of caution from myself after last weeks disastrous trade in of Rioli – after all of these many years of SC it appears that I still have not learnt some basic things – so take heed with your trade choices coming up:
When choosing rookies, no matter how good their BE’s are and first two scores … always consider carefully if their role is SMALL FORWARD … AND they are making an appearance mid-season. They are not first choice (they would have started Rnd1!) and that role is traditionally a poor scoring role … particularly in a strong team like Tigers
I knew this myself and picked Hamilton as my main choice (he had lots of other factors better too!) … but before the match started, and with over 51,000 trading in Rioli I asked for comments and a thumbs poll … and reversed Hamilton – DUH! It cost me dollars, and Rioli will not earn money … or maybe even play again … he was that pathetic if you didn’t watch the game!
So – by all means, ask for thoughts or thumbs, read all of our articles on the site – there are some great minds and writers, who put all of their time in for free!
BUT – at the end of the day do two things: 1. Go with you gut!! Your first choice is usually right I have learnt! 2. Make the decision yourself, regardless of the advice you chase … and refer to the first point!! (and don’t trade in small forwards!!!)
