Stay tuned to DT TALK this week for all of the great AFL Dream Team advice you could ever need in this important price change week!


  • Chop chop… 2146 this week.

    Out with 2 rage trades (Broughton & Golby) welcome aboard Goddard & Clarke. (Had the G man until 1 day before lock out and got rid of him… FMDT)! I can rest easy knowing that this is all reversible.

  • Team Name: The Bluebaggers
    Round 2 Score: 2088
    DT Studs: Goddard,Deledio,Boyd,Giles,Kreuzer
    DT Duds: Shaw,Martin,Hall,Pavlich,Goodes,Franklin
    On the Chopping Block: Gilbert,Montagna,Martin,Pavlich,Shaw
    Round 3 trades: Wingard for Newnes and Pfefier for Milera
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Combination of Giles and Kreuzer Total 198 points 443,800 spent

  • Only piece of advice I can give is that the aim of the game is to have 22 guns on the field come finals time.

    If your trading a Gun for a Gun, a mid for a mid or a rook for a rook, your team is not advancing, it’s staying right where it was the week before. Less 2 trades.

    I’d only be trading out non playing rookie’s for playing rookie’s right now.

    • So the money you get to keep by sideways to a better rookie could be lost by keeping an under achieving gun? Not really good advice IMO. Now is the only time in the season its ok to do any of that sort of stuff.

  • Team name: hawrys haws
    Round 2 score: 1832
    DT studs: Ablett, boyd, s selwood, cox, darling
    DT duds: Golby, duffield, palmer, broughton, Taylor
    On the chopping block: duffield, broughton, taylor, palmer, golby
    Round 3 trades: Rockliff for stevens, hunt for malceski
    Vent/brag/whatever: Defence let me down big time, hopefully the two freo boys can pull it together.

  • Team Name:warhogs
    Round 2 Score:2320
    DT Studs:goddard,lids,ablett,pendles,shuey
    DT Duds:SHAW,buddy
    On the Chopping Block:SHAW
    Round 3 trades:shaw for birchall or carrots??
    Vent/Brag/Whatever:73 overall this week not bad for 2 year player

  • How do you reverse trade on Ipod / iphone. Im in the USA now and traded Enight for Birchall and what to reverse and dont know how

    • Are you sure you want to go back to Enright?

    • From memory you can’t do it through the App – just log in to the website via safari, hit the undo button then back to the app. Slightly annoying but not overly difficult.

  • Team Name: The SelwoodEffect

    Round 2 Score: 2120

    DT Studs: Gary Ablett! Goddard, Deledio, Boyd, Magner, J Selwood (Half time injury and still scored a ton!)

    DT Duds: No one really

    On the Chopping Block: No one

    Round 3 trades: Not making any

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Geelong won! Enough said

  • Team Name: Innocent Criminals
    Round 2 Score: 2,190
    Rank: 1,631
    DT Studs: Goddard, Delids, Gaz Jr, Magnus Magnusson, Chappy, Nick Voldt
    DT Duds: Broughton
    On the Chopping Block: possibly Broughton, but need to have a bit more of a think about it. The other day someone made a good point that if Broughton is a D7 then may as well keep him and work around him.
    Round 3 trades: Broughton to Dempsey will be popular this week, but I like to run my own race. Will probably tweak the rookies with one – maybe two – trades.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Geelong Cats 92. Hawthorn 90.

  • Team Name: Blues Booze Kreuz
    Round 2 Score: 2215
    DT Studs: Pendlebury, Ablett, Mitchell, Watson, Deledio
    DT Duds: Bugg, Ellis, Martin
    On the chopping block: Ledger for Greene, Hall for Milera

  • Team Name: Chooks Rooks
    Round 2 Score: 2084
    DT Studs: Deledio, Goodard, Waters, Hargrave
    DT Duds: Martin, Shaw, Pendlebury(C), MUMFORD
    On the Chopping Block: Mumford
    Round 3 trades: N/A
    Mumford you should have rung me, or relationship is on ice.
    Heath Shaw, when Maxy, Reid and Taz come back in and you stop being a defender and start being a DT defender, you better be ready to go.
    Conilgio, i wanna see more from you, consistancy is not good in the 50’s.
    Barlow, keep the vest for nest week im eyeing you down at a hard to resist price and after half time scores, but is it only because your fresh or because your the inaugrial golden stubby winner.

  • I wish S.Selwood was DPP. He is this years Lecras.

    Is 3 tigers in defence too much? Had Lids 3 years running then bypassed him this year. Now look at him!

    Enright->Lids, Shaw->Farknose.

  • Team Name: Team Punishment
    Round 2 Score: 2,146
    DT Duds: Mummy
    On the Chopping Block: none
    Round 3 trades: none
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: WTF Mummy = 0 … o the pain

  • Team Name: AFL Monkeys

    Score: 2084

    DT Studs: Magnet, Watson, Ablett, Goddard, Swan, Lids, Giles, Cox , Kreuzer, Dempsey, Hargrave

    DT Duds: Shaw, Callinan, Trollby, Buddy, Smith

    Chopping Block: Callinan

    Round 3 Trades: None

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: My unique pick in Watson paid off. Magner will be my 6th mid. Ablett captain for the rest of the year. Supercoach score 2366. :)

  • Score: dsappointingi 2059

    Studs: Gods, lids, gablett

    Duds: Broughton, shaw, golby, rockliff, Buddy, Martin

    Trades: Broughton>waters and golby>heppell

    Vent/brag/whatever: too many dud scores, disappointed with my score

  • Team Name: Missing In Action
    Round 2 Score: 2211 (ranked 4565 for the week, 6870 overall)
    DT Studs: Watson, Goddard, Deledio, Ablett, Ryder, Magner, Dempsey
    DT Duds: Rockliff, Shaw, Broughton, Martin, Buddy
    On the Chopping Block: No-one. Well, maybe broughton but plan on keeping the trigger finger firmly in the pocket.
    Round 3 trades: If anything, pfeiffer > greene and broughton > birchall.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Pretty happy with my first couple of rounds given I have put bugger all time into my team this year. Round one saw some pretty poor team selection by me, Round two was a lot better. Smedts over Hall would have netted me 10 points. Ellis scored more than half my backline but I never would have played him over my mid’s/premiums. So far my plan to leave Goodes & Swan for a mid season upgrade is looking good. Swanny may not even make it in this year considering my current mids are Ablett, Pendles, Watson, Boyd, Rocky and Magner. Really only 5-6 players tops in my current lineup that need to be upgraded, others just need to pick up their game.

  • Team Name:
    Round 2 Score: 2137
    DT Studs: Goddard, Deledio, Ablett, Pendles, Boyd, Magner, Giles.
    DT Duds: Broughton, A. Hall, Buddy.

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Swan’s got nothing!

  • Team Name: ShadowEagles

    Chopping block- Cogs for green and Dickson for Milera

    Vent- Bloody Forwards scored 535points and none of them broke the ton. Between Goodes, Fyfe, Martin, Buddy and Dangerfield you would be hoping for 2- 4 every week

  • Team Name: Chooka’s XXII

    Round 2 Score: 2131

    Overall Rank: 765

    DT Studs: Ablett, Pendlebury, Waters, Redden (BL)

    DT Duds: Broughton, Martin

    On the Chopping Block: Broughton. Watched the whole game and he just didn’t even look like he wanted to go near the footy, yet i still can’t decide if i want him out

    Round 3 trades: Undecided but unlikely

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Cannot believe i jumped off Bartel and Josh P. Kennedy this year. Anyway, go the roos!

  • Team Name: Kenny’s Kings

  • Is trading Dangerfield to Brad Ebert a good trade/ bad trade??

  • Is trading Dangerfield to Ebert a good trade/ bad trade??

  • Team Name: This Is Mine

    Round 2 Score: 2097

    DT Studs: Goddard, Deledio, Ablett,

    DT Duds: Callinan,

    On the Chopping Block: Callinan

    Round 3 trades: Wilkes(St.K) for Bugg, Callinan for Fasolo

    Amazing what a little research can do for the season, averaged 1700 last season, looking good so far.

  • Team Name: Sheeeen’s Dream Team
    Round 2 Score: 2133
    DT Studs: Goddard, Deledio, Waters, Ablett, Magner, Giles
    DT Duds: Palmer, Hale, Grimes
    On the Chopping Block: Grimes, Palmer
    Round 3 trades: Grimes + Palmer –> Hurn + Brad Ebert, leaving me with $0
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Strongly considering trading Hale, but having a 5th ruck option means I wont have to burn a trade on that come the byes…

  • Can someone give me an update/an understanding on what is happening with Xavier Ellis?

  • Team Name: Nick’s Neurosis
    Round 2 Score: Bad week, 1,988 :\
    DT Studs: Goddard, Deledio, Boyd, GAJ, Magner, Giles
    DT Duds: Palmer, Parker, Hale, Mumford, Franklin, A.Hall
    On the Chopping Block: Mumford, Broughton, Parker, Palmer…
    Round 3 trades: Mumford -> Ryder, Parker -> A.Kennedy – Leaving me $264k.

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Not happy with Franklin but he shall pick up, everyone has him anyway. Very bad choice in A.Hall/S.Kerridge bench forwards…
    Want to get Stanton in this week, but I simply don’t have enough money even if I drop Parker and Palmer… Maybe next week depending upon how Palmer goes.
    Might grab Greene depending upon my thoughts through the week, both him and Kennedy are great cash cows.
    Keeping Hale in hopes he picks up a bit then can save me a donut come rounds 11-13…

  • Team Name: Passies Papadums
    Round 2 Score: 2239
    DT Studs: Gaz, Delids, Goddard, Lake, Hargrave, Magner, pretty much everyone did there part!
    DT Duds: Bugg, Coniglio (weren’t shocking scores but scored poorly compared to the rest of the team)
    On the Chopping Block: T Dickson, maybe Hall.
    Round 3 trades: I’m thinking T Dickson to Kennedy or Milera, who has better job security? I have a feeling Sheeds may shuffle a few youngsters around now.
    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Good week, wish I had Gaz captain, Pendles did well but Gaz was simply amazing!
