  • Another great watch lads!
    Warnie, I have the same problem as you with the 4 backs however if your anything like me I was able to put Pittard and Heppell on the back bench, moved Goodes into midfield bench (dpp).
    Leaving me with Gibbs to Hartlett and Hoff to Stevie J.
    Back pain won’t be forcing me to donut this week;)

    • Nice. That is a win. Everyone will be in different positions. I’ll definitely have to pull two trades – Goodes and Gibbs most likely – to avoid donuts, but still leaves me with no bench. OUCH!

  • well done boys good show

  • Nurofen reference is gold.

  • Heppell not playing? Ohh my god, I was going to trade him in. Damn. Who should I trade in instead? Watson or Stanton then?

    • Watson is at a good price, go him.

      • thankyou for your reply warnie. the other idea i had was that i already had 4 premo def. if i downgrade gibbs to a rookie such as terlich or vlastuin, that would leave me with 3 premo def. terlich, i believe still has value and maybe wait a week on vlastuin (can always trade goodes> valstuin next week).

        then, westhoff>cox dpp, gawn in ruck. purely for cash generation and as i didn’t have heppell yet i can still get rid of westhoff in time.

  • I’ve been smashed by the backline carnage this week with 4 players out. I managed to minimise the damage down to 1 donut without trading out Heppell or Gibbs and I managed to get rid of Westhoff as well… While I’m not happy about it I think it could have turned out a lot worse for me.

  • Though I may incur two donuts for the next two weeks, I am going to stick to my “master plan” and have faith in the depth of the rest if my team. If I pump out 2000+ scores over the two weeks, then it will all be worth it :D

  • Good show boys. I enjoy watching this more than the footy show!

    • Haha. The Footy Show has lost it’s charm for me… it’s about time a network had a fun, fan based show like… er, DT Talk?! ;)

  • Popular twitter question: “Do i jump of the Hoff?”- mentioned as a luxury trade in light of the backs carnage earlyier in the show, but not entirely me thinks….if you trade out Hoff, and rotate in a FWD; trade in Hartlett into mids, and then rotate Heppell or Goodes to the MID bench.

    • For sure… but I think this year a lot of people aren’t linked up with DPP, and if they are… it’s a Dwyer or a Neade who you wouldn’t be overly confident on playing on your ground. But in a week like this, beggers can’t be choosers! We did mention DPP magic to help solve problems in the show.

      Good plan, though.

  • Not sure if I can ask this here but Harry Taylor or Andrew makie . Taylor’s last 3 are 100+ is this likely to continue?

    • His role as a DEF to FWD switch was tried last year, and I think in the NAB cup, so it seems to be something Geelong are keen on this as a impact play.
      Also note that Hawkings didn’t play last week, and Stokes is now playing as a rover, so there was a need to get Taylor in the forward line. Note sure what will happen when Geelong change their FWD structure again, but as long as Taylor is playing forwards, he’s worth it.

  • Good work guys, always enjoy the show

  • My Def: Goddard, Gibbs(injured), Duffield, Hibberd, Goodes, Stevenson (Pittard, Terlich)
    So i’m getting Hartlett this week for either Gibbs or Goodes, i don’t know whether to turn goodes into Hartlett, and downgrade one of my other rookies, or turn Gibbs into Hartlett and downgrade Goodes
    Goodes is definetly going this week and i’m unsure whether to trade Gibbs or keep him on my bench
    Thoughts plz???

  • Can someone tell me how to move more than one player when trading?

    I want to trade Westoff out by brining in a defender but i cant seem to find out how to do a double DPP unless the defender i bring in is also a mid as then i’ll have to sub them after the trade.

    i want to trade Westoff, move Mayes foward, Goodes mid and then get in Hanley.. but it wont let me.

    also anyone rate Heath Shaw as a defender over hartlett, Hanley and Burgoyne?

  • I’m just enquiring about the back issue. I have to start two rookies out of Terlich, Saunders and Vlastuin. Also trading out Brett Goodes, who would you trade him to already have Hartlett, can’t afford Birchall don’t want to get Scotland because then I would have two Carlton in my backline, also don’t want to get Hibberd as I would have three Essendon in my backline. So who would you go for out of the likes of Shaw, waters, Burgoyne you know…

  • Hi guys,
    First of all, great show, gave me a few new ideas, i.e. Heath Shaw.

    A couple of issues though, number one is that I wanted Scotland from the start of this round, but I waited to see if he was selected, and he’s an emergency! (or listed as one). Do you think he is likely to be selected as one? I’m not sure if I can take the risk?

    Also, do you think Heath Shaw will average as much as Burgoyne, who I had and then reversed? I’m not sold on Burgoyne, and I would prefer a carlton player to replace Gibbs, but I don’t know whether he is going to play.

    Any thoughts would be much appreciated,
    Cheers

  • ive got heppell, gibbs, pittard, goodes and fyfe. dont know wether to make two trades in the backline and then put fyfe on bench for dwyer and have everyone playing or to trade fyfe to someone like sidebottom and trade gibbs to hanley and have one zero on the field.

    I want to make my team better in the long run and dont want to stuff it up for just one round and unsure which to go with.

    thoughts?

  • Who should I play???

    Neade
    Mcaffer
    Dwyer
    HELP

    • Yeah same dilemma here, but I think Dwyer has a higher ceiling then Macaffer, plus it should be in collingwood’s forward line more, and macaffer has been playing in the backline recently.

      Also, you can see whether he is going to be the sub or not…

    • Neade. He’s the most consistent.

      • That is true, if you want a solid 60, get neade or macaffer, but there is the risk that neade will be the sub, he is that kind of player.

        Meanwhile, I would rather take the chance of getting 5 less points and knowing someone is going to play, with the chance that they might score a 75+, as Dwyer has done on (two?) occasions

  • Who would you play on field =

    Kommer or Dwyer or Matt Jones???

    • MJ is consistent, Dwyer is a bit hit and miss, but Kommer, this week against GWS should easily get 70+. If he wasn’t playing GWS, I would go MJ

  • Gibbs > Hanley, Fyfe > J Selwood

    or

    Gibbs > Dixon, Fyfe > A Swallow
