It’s only round one, but… – Ep. 73

Phew! Round 1 is over and for some it was a good one, while others are keen to get into their trades ahead of the next lockout. Roy, Calvin and Warnie have just switched off AFL Live Pass on the iPad and have sat down to record the hits and misses of the opening round.

  • nice work again guys!

  • Best start I’ve ever had with 2270 (45th overall) thanks to you boys. (Roy) hahah

  • Love all the hate Sidey coped in the podcast. Most deserved after starting my season off with yet another forced premo mid trade.

  • Havent had a chance to listen as yet, but ….. Daniel Howe to benefit from Hodgey breaking his arm?

  • I think Calvin and I had similar team
    I feel your pain mate… A lot of disappointment for my squad
    Steel
    Harwood
    Howe
    Tippa
    sheil
    Cripps
    M crouch possible suspension??
    Traded out danger for Selwood after last weeks podcast :-(
    Gawn and Jacobs as my ruck combo hurt a bit
    And Adams as Captain

  • Hi Gents

    Very Very funny podcast – i’m still laughing :)
    It’s only round one but nothing ever changes…. Destroy dominant and poor old Calvin what can one say!
    Plus 3 – Aaron Hall (continues to pump those 100+ scores
    Negative 3 – Harwood (should have gone Dea as he’ll always get a game)
    Good luck next week

  • I had ablett as captain, was always going to have a big one against the bombers… And sheridan got 116 due to the ball basically always in freo’s defense

  • Do you think I should drop Toby Greene yet, if I trade Jacobs for Hickey then I’ll be able to upgrade to someone like Parker or Dangerfield

    • What would trading Jacobs for Hickey achieve though?

      Jacobs is coming up against the ruckman that Hickey just smashed and he is a far better ruckman.
