Rd9Sam Murray (COL) & Jack Henry (GEE) OUT for Jason Ridley (ESS) & Kade Simpson (CAR) IN

Rd10 – Tim Kelly (GEE) & Jack Billings (STK) OUT for Tim Smith (MEL) & Michael Walters (FRE) IN

Rd11 – J.Ridley (ESS) & L.Keefe (GWS) OUT for Logan Austin (STK) & Brody Mihocek (COL) IN

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…………

 

**UPDATE on 14/6/18 at 1pm**

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?

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………..

  1. Dark days, Call for out of left field predictions….

    Barry < Giro ( slow burn ) only $102k risk!
    Spargo < Wingard ( dpp ) has 6 games at AO remaining where his average is around 87 from 5 already in 2018
    Guelfi < Gray

    Cheers Catta

  2. Look like we’ll struggle to field 18 again depending if Fogarty and Duman play.
    Fritsch to Gray/Westhoff
    Fogarty to Giro
    Spargo to Gaff

    Rockliff and JJK are other cheap speculative options.

  3. Why on God’s green Earth would we have traded out Lachie Keefe last week at $157k?? Surely he was only in the team to swing with Sicily and now it’s gone. Staggering…

    Anyway, I’d hold Fritch, Guelfi and Smith for various reasons. Trade Barry and Spargo out. One down, one up. I don’t care who for, maybe Giro then you’ve got 600+k for a premo on any line we choose. Maybe a poll on which line needs an upgrade the most?

    1. I take full responsibility for that one. Normally I wouldn’t have made that move but our cash generation is almost stagnant and Austin is sure to get over $300k in a hurry……

  4. Its death or glory…..

    Guelfi to Westhoff

    If all our mids play then Fritsch to Wingard
    Otherwise whichever mid doesnt play to Wingard

    We just gotta get pts this week…nothing else matters or season slips away.

    Cant see how we can get Boak or Gray as well, but wouldn’t be dissappointed to see these dudes in instead of Wingard either.

  5. Fritsch looks like an F6/7 and Guelfi still has money to make for THE TEAM, so
    OUT: Spargo and two unnamed this week of Barry, Fogarty and Duman . If two of them are named (that would be amazing, but I doubt it) then Guelfi has to be the third to go!

    ITB = 299.4
    Spargo = 238
    Fogarty = 234
    Duman = 198
    TOTAL = 969.4 (have less if Barry goes)

    IN:
    L Ryan (WCE) via Walters to MID and benched (spare spot) 194
    Rockliff 384 (due a decent run)
    Wingard 375 (DPP and cheap as)

    Not sure I like it myself even, but given our predicament …
    next week can target Oliver / TMac and Ahern and then
    the other + J Smith + + the rest of the bloody Dees!! 😉

    1. Or similar to this could do…

      OUT- Fogarty, Barry, Spargo
      Swing Walters into MID

      IN- Ryan, Giro, Gaff

      Leaves $102,400 in the bank

  6. This is very conflicting. In the one league that the Team has made the top 8 for we are playing against me this week!

  9. Is Fyfe at risk of attracting a Curnow tag? Thus makes him not a best VC option?

    If that is the case then Titch into Danger
