Ep 002: Mad Monday Podcast ahead of Round 11

After a promising debut last week (thanks for the #2 overall on the iTunes podcast charts!), we are back ready to back it up as we play our bubble game, in DT terms. What a better week to prove ourselves before our price rise than with this heading into the all important bye rounds.

We are back for the second DT TALK Mad Monday Podcast. Last week we were overwhelmed by the support – we even sat at number two on the overall Australian iTunes podcast charts… not bad to be sitting ahead of Hamish and Andy and others. Thanks heaps for listening. Subscribe now in iTunes and feel free to give us a rating and comment.

This Mad Monday we talk about:

  • Around the grounds
  • +3 votes, -3 votes
  • Bye discussion
  • Trade targets and what we’re doing
  • Our best (and worst) trade weeks of the year

    Loving these Monday Podcasts. What would be the better option?

    Downgrade TWO fattened cash cow rookies to T.Mitchell & K.Martin and then Upgrade to two premiums the week after


    Downgrade ONE rookie and upgrade to one premium?


    PS. Go Dazza Jolly!

    Never has a Sunday/Monday trade looked so tantalising on paper. Kommer and Wines to T. Mitchell and Bartel. With cash to spare! Now if only I could get rid of Scotland and some round 13 mids it will be outstanding. I may attempt to DPP my way around it :D

      Yeah, on the fence about Scotland, i’ll see how he goes against decent opposition this week… I think he plays better and is rested less against better teams

      And reality strikes: I still have Lonergan. Looks like that dream is over. Unless…

        You know what, I don’t even care. I’m still making that trade because it is just too good to pass up. I should still have 18 players for this week as long as there isn’t carnage at the selection table, so I’m just gonna go for it and then probably reverse trades Thursday when the AFL coaches have their revenge.

    Worst week
    ROUND 5
    OUT Blicavs ($160,400) IN Mayes ($152,200)
    OUT Stevenson ($194,900) IN Birchall ($518,400)

    Stevenson came back in and scored 82 while I keep pittard who hasn’t been seen since, Birchall has now dropped 140K.
    Wish I also kept Blicavs as I got Hannath’s score on the wek-end (10)

    Round 6 I made my Worst and Best trade
    ROUND 6
    OUT Whitfield ($270,300) IN Hartlett ($458,000)
    OUT Gibbs ($451,100) IN Ellis ($217,000)

      mate I went blicavs to gawn, blicavs got 22 the rd before I kicked him out and since hes gone over 80 every week whereas gawn has gone 60, 40, 20 then dropped.

    Loving the Monday podcasts! Helps the clueless (i.e. me) overachieve that little bit more.

    I’ve got a few terrible trades:
    Traded out Roughy in Rnd 1…became Kreuzer, then Leuenberger and now I have to offload him for Goldstein, should have just stuck with him!
    Got in Viney over Jones in Rnd 2
    JPK out for Birchall, has average about 62 since coming for about a 105 price…
    Lastly, Lonergan in for Stevenson when I had Kerridge in all week and changed, and we all know what happened there.
    A few good ones:
    Karnezis for Dwyer in Rnd 3, Dwyer’s been great for a rookie so far
    Heath out for Priddis, who has done a great job so far in my lineup

    Great work loving these. Sound quality way better than last week also ;)

    Same score as Calvin. Dismal! Looking to go big this week and make it back.

      Haha – cheers – we took some advice (thanks mate)… rather than having it on a table, I went a nice fabric ottoman! Boom! HAha. Could still be better, but hopefully it’s listenable!

    Best Week

    ROUND 8
    Stevenson to Vlastuin
    Heath to Priddis

    Forgot who I got Priddis in but I’m sure I did some DPP magic and got him in who is consistent for me in my mids since bringing him in. Also Vlastuin even though he had already risen in price has been great since bringing him in! WIN.

    ROUND 9
    Chapman to Franklin
    Wines to Watson

    Cashed in on Wines to a premium in Watson and got rid of Chapman for Franklin at his lowest price while making close to 100k and getting a score of 108 from Franklin upon trading him in, while Chapman still hasn’t come back. WIN.

    Round 7
    Fyfe to Dangerfield
    Westhoff to Daw

    Cashed in on Westhoff a week late and got in Daw who scored 128 the same week… On my bench eh but still made cash and only took 3 k to upgrade to Danger who has outperformed fyfe thus far since I did the trade so it’s a semi-win.

    Worst Week

    ROUND 6
    Pittard – Birchall
    Whitfield – Seirakowski

    Birchall shitted me off with his lowly score on return and yet to crack the ton since I brought him in at 526k! Strongly looking to trade him out after scoring a 78 against a lowly Melbourne side. You do not pay premium dollar for a guy who gave in a high score of 81 for you without getting angry at him! Whitfield for Seirakowski wasn’t that bad as it was just to gain me some cash but Seirakowski missing a few weeks while on the bubble did limit me in making some cash off him.
