  • Great Job Warnie, but strongly disagree with some of your advice; Jolly is a great choice, over a long-term period. Jolly hasn’t had one bad score since he has come back from injury. As for Kreuzer and Roughead, I would easily take Kreuzer for a lot less $, and will score more consistently. A few weeks back I asked if I should get Bernie Vince and you insisted not to and I am regretting that. That’s just my opinion. Otherwise, keep up the good work.

    • Jolly – I personally don’t see him averaging more than 80, and at a stretch 85, for the year, Roughead will be around 90-95. Jolly has been scoring pretty well, with a couple of tons, but he is an old man now. I think you’re not going to get a lot of value from him. But of course, that’s my opinion.

      Kreuzer v Roughead… well, that is a bit closer. I picked Kreuzer at the start of the year and was quite happy with him before his injury. Again, he will probably be 85 average at best, but yes, consistent… but I’d have him all day over Jolly. I still have Roughead over him though.

      Finally… Bernie Vince. He’s been pretty good since returning to the team. I didn’t predict that. But can you blame me for saying not to go him? Please. He had scores of 42, 50 and then a 52 with a vest and then was dropped. Hmm! Yeah, I’d recommend for people to pick him up!

      My advice… back your gut! Don’t listen to hacks like me! ;)

      • I appreciate your opinions. I agree Jolly is getting older, but again, so is Cox! Anyhow, I do understand why you said no to Bernie Vince, due to those shocking scores – should of gone with my gut!

        In a similar situation I was telling all my mates to jump on Boak at the beginning of the year as an up and comer, then at the last minute changed him to David Swallow, worst mistake of my DT career. Boak goes boom and there still only continues to be one good Swallow in the AFL.

        As for Roughead, I am still not sure what everyone sees in him, I thought he was always that semi-useless non-premium forward that teams have, to occupy a key defender – think Q.Lynch or Dawes when he played at Collingwood, or even Tom Hawkins circa 2009-2010. He is not a primary ruckman or Full-forward so I hate to come to terms with bringing him in, he never truly was a premium so that might be it, maybe his high scores are due to Buddy’s form drop?

        Anyway, I somewhat agree with Kreuzer having a 80-85 average, I think it would be a lot more if it wasn’t for his thumb – he is still taping it up right? When I had a 100% fit Kreuzer to start off the year I was loving it, but now with a busted thumb I can see less of an output… Less goals and ruck taps…

        On that, will Kreuzer be rucking with that busted thumb or will he sit in the forward line the whole game?

        Again, much appreciated, thanks Warnie!

  • Thanks for you advice Warnie. Im still torn between Boyd and StevieJ, especially since Geelong have an easy run coming up with Gold Coast, GWS and Brisbane. Not sure when his price will drop. I guess non-Ablett owners have the same dilemma – thank god i got him from he start.

    Shame that the dream team talk segment on 91.3 is no longer. Its great having a sports radio station in Perth but giving James Farron the heave-ho along with the segment is crap. Surely there must be thousands of others that listen to that podcast?
