      Not only a “1st” but an insult to match.

    Good to see big 211 should be right either this or next week, however disappointing to see Tapscott was “test” last week and finds himself back on here and Matera has made no progress by the look of it…eating a donut or 2 up forward this week…BUGGER!!!

    Sandi a 80/20 chance of playing according to interview on Perth news… Pav gonna play(just to put an end to ppl saying he won’t)
    I thought barts would have to rest, I thought after a concussion it was mandatory to sit out a week or some shit?

      No they just can’t come back on the field that game…

      It is NFL where they have to miss the next week

    I heard Sandi was 50/50, I would love for him to sit it out for another week after trading him out last week. Planning on getting Sandi back in round 18 so he would have played 2 or 3 games by then, but that seems an eternity away now! Ah well, fingers crossed we’ll be right….

      What a waste of a trade… Trade a prem out an then back in???

        not if he had smith. Would have freed up heaps of cash and probably avoided donut and the possibility of more with Sandi looking unlikely for the cox bye at that stage

          McEvoy is a monster, I’d be tempted to trade him in instead of Sandi, Sandi might take games to get back in form and McEvoy looks a lot more mobile around the ground. 4 big tons in his last 6 games too with a 140 against the Pies.

            Leunberger looks the goods to with 3 tons out of last 4, Kruze too but he has the bye of course.

    Unlikely for the eAgles bye… Pfft… IMO it’s a waste of a trade…

        +1, Seen this posted multiple times on the same article not to mention this post being mentioned in the comments of every article I have read this week.

        “Thoughts for other upgrade targets…”

        Why dont you do some research and watch a few games and then suggest who you were planning on upgrading to. Its the business end of the season and people don’t want their exact trades copied by someone. People want to differentiate their teams to give them the edge and score more points.

        e.g “what are your thoughts on trading player x to player y in the backline” (maybe give some analysis or your thought process). Rather than cookie cutting everyone elses trades, ask for the peoples opinions on the players you want to bring in. Posting the same trades over and over is not only repitive but fucking annoying.

        Do them trades if they are both named on team sheet. Also whats your ranking?

          +2 So sick of this dude spamming every single article, his ranking would be shithouse!!

            June 22, 2011 at 4:00 pm

            Thats why I want to know his ranking because I bet without DT talk it would be in the 100,000 area.

    How many times have you posted this same question this week? At least three.

    Sounds like three fantastic trades you have there and you should win the car.

    If you’re looking for upgrade targets, click on the trade button marked “T” under any player.

    Then select available players based on either round score; average; or price. Generally speaking, a higher average means an upgrade target.

    These upgrade targets could include players like Shaw or Fisher in the backs: Murphy or Ablett (you know him yeah?) in the midfield; or perhaps Chapman or Franklin in the forward line.

    Do it now so you won’t miss the bus to school!

    Gold coast – Jake Crawford – 1 week

    If I’m not mistaken, there was quite a bit of hype about this guy pre-season…
    Does anyone have any info on him?

    Big Tommy Derickx listed on the injury list I see. Where has this guy been?? Just curious coz I picked him up as my 4th ruck as I thought he may pick up a few games due to being mature age and Richmond not having the best rucks. But I spose Browne is playing 2 well for him 2 get a look in now..
