      Balic mate. Reasoning: You know he has a negative break even, you know he will make you money regardless of future selections. Mutimer might not make you much at all, and could be out next week.

      Personally I think Mutimer will get 2-3 games but I’d rather go someone who you’ve had a look at before and who is guaranteed to make you money.

    Going Pickett and Swallow to Black and Jamie Elliott. I’m considering them both upgrades really based on past scores, yet I still pocket a little money for next week.

    The other option is bringing in Balic instead of Elliott and having about $300k for next week. I’m cautious of the detrimental effect of a double downgrade to rookies hence going Elliott to take over the role of cash cow as I move WHE, Houston etc on in coming weeks.

    Thoughts?

          Agreed, if I had the option I’d be benching Otten this week. 60 odd score incoming probably. Unfortunately I have to field him.

          Hampton and Newman safer.

    My trades this week have effectively come down to a cash vs points argument.

    I have newman marchbank and Hampton making cash. I just dont have them all on the field.

    So essentially its

    1. Black vs Newman on field for points value.

    2. Black vs EVW for cash making potential.

    Which is more important 1 or 2?

    • Avatar

      stoo

      April 28, 2017 at 6:51 pm

      2. Base it on what you know. Black will go up more than EVW no matter what they both score. For this week at least!

      Who knows who scores more out of Newman and Black?

        Im in same boat Powerade. I dont want to take huge risks to try and crawl back though. I need to get my teams cash making potential back on track.

        Recent trades in of Swallow, Polson, Fisher have pretty much ruined my season as Already had a bad start (Gawn, Steven, and shit back structure with Shaw).

      It’ll be 2 down to 1 imo, unless Toby’s record is bad enough to add on another.

      Watching in real time you can see he tries to punch the ball first and collects Daniel afterwards.
      Considering Lewis’s off the ball punch that broke a jaw was considered 2 and this one was on the ball that is probably far.

      Macrae probably cops a fine at worst for his hit.
