    General Note, DTLive Chat has some opinions.

    Especially North fans forgetting the fact that they are in the same boat as Hawthorn, not necessarily effort wise, but ladder wise. And adding to this, Rioli is not overrated, and dont judge one quarter of football, and immediately think about trades and getting certain footballers in (Burton).

      All in all, its just friendly football banter…but some people think fantasy football stats means they are brilliant in the real AFL sport.

    Vent/Brag/Whatever: Moved from 9000 to 2300 so first world problems, but to score only two midfield tons from Danger, Gaff, Fyfe, Parker, Titch, Beams, Murph and ANB grates.

    Copped Hampton and Roughy like many, but a special mention to Houston on the bench with his 82 admirably covering Phillips late out.

        How do you figure that?
        Preuss 60% chance in my opinion this week to be dropped now mason wood is now getting back to peak fitness to go forward and Goldstein back to his best, Ben brown will help Goldstein

        And by me bringing in jake spencer will make me $100k in the next 5 weeks and he has 12 weeks of football ahead of him and if they need another ruckman it will be max king who I have also got, and by putting Nankervis forward puts Brett eddy and dan butler on my bench which generates cash, well maybe not eddy but definitely butler. So I think it’s pretty smart but each to their own opinion

    First trade is already Roughead – 150k Rook. For next trade which one should I look at doing ?

    A) SPP – Lloyd via Adams DPP
    B) Hampton – Lloyd
    C) SPP – Yeo

    Can afford anyone up to 590k thoughts ??

    • FevsBingles


      April 17, 2017 at 7:31 pm

      Not the right place to be posting this, but I’d be going either A or B mate.

      I’ve taken SPP out, still in two minds about my second trade.

    April 17, 2017 at 7:28 pm

    The only rookies who scored over 50+ over the round are over 200 grand. We are in desperate need of some debuts this week, at the moment I don’t see the point of trading. Wasting a trade to make maybe less than 50 grand and have someone with lower job security just not worth it in my opinion

    Parsons would be decent but looks like he will miss games

    • FevsBingles


      April 17, 2017 at 7:34 pm

      Yeah I’ve taken Powell-Pepper out, but I’m also in two minds about that as Port have Carlton this weekend and if not dropped he should make some coin for sure, undecided and in two minds about the second trade also.

    Can’t complain tho, back to 513 overall

    • FevsBingles


      April 17, 2017 at 7:32 pm

      I’d be very tempted to leave Barrett on bench, has an excellent break even and surely won’t be long until he’s back in the side again, will make some good coin mate, agree with SPP though for sure.

      • FevsBingles


        April 17, 2017 at 7:35 pm

        Mind you, does have Carlton this weekend, so will make some coin and should score 50+ if not dropped.
