    DEF: Laird, Lloyd, Ryan, Murray, Coffield, Finlyason (Doedee, Murphy)
    MID: Mitchell, Fyfe, Coniglio, Merrett, Whitfield, JOM, Kelly, Holman (Banfield, Barry)
    RUCK: Martin, Gawn (McInerey, Cameron)
    FWD: Billings, Heeney, Smith, Taranto, English, Guelifi (Giles-Langdon, Crowden)

    Cash: $132k

    Thoughts on trades:
    1.) Holman to Mutch and Coffield (Via Whitfield) to McLean who will play in the forawrds with Crowden in the mids with Banfield on field. Only leaves $1k for next week.

    or

    2.) Holman to Mutch and Barry to Spargo leaving $344k for next week.

    Option 1 only leaves $1k for next week, so do I try and get Ronke or Spargo instead of upgrading, thanks legends

      I like option 2, unless youre willing to give barry one more chance (he doesnt deserve one) I would double downgrade. Also as coffield is name i think he will flush out that 21 score and get to 450k like doedee, murray, and finlayson will

        Not sure how secure Keefe’s spot is. But they got plenty of injuries and Keefe got better as the game wore on. I was bloody stoked with a 76. He was only 29@half time. Plus there was heaps of awful players for the giants. Il be upgrading finlayson or omeara next week. He still rose a bit in price and Whitfield dropped a bit. So that looks the obvious choice.

      Was that ‘shape up or shit out’? And I needed a low priced rookie 2nd trade to allow me Taranto: Shitley.

      And as for Diggerz post below; it rubs salt in the wound all the more because it is provided with all the usefulness of hindsight. Do a search of the posts and no warning against Shipley of that kind before the match (even with his slow start last week).

      Cameron’s evaluation was also shite “His pre-season was really rock-solid and then he played a couple of JLT games that probably surprised us” he said. “He’s been in good form at NEAFL level and he’s been an emergency the last few weeks, so he thoroughly deserves his opportunity.”

      That quality of shite evaluation probably explains the reality checking shite dished up by GWS last night.

      I love learning the hard way . . . makes me feel like I’m in the guts of Life!

        I reckon you’re better double downgrading than settling for a rookie who’s shown nothing when decent, but slightly more expensive, ones are available. Sacrificing long-term cash generation for 20-50 points is not worth it.

    I thought he wasn’t relevant Shipley . But I looked up and surprisingly 6.5% own him. He was covering for a week or 2 for a injury and will be out next week. Especially after that display.

      Wow. There was Mutch or Worpel. I’m stunned at 6.5%. Wow.

        Plugger

        May 5, 2018 at 11:50 am

        I wanted Taranto but it left me with 186k for the second trade. Mutch and Worpel unavailable with that coin (and I tried hard for Mutch): it’s not always a strong optional choice one makes, in foresight, it can be a weak forced choice. So the 6.5% (surprises me too) maybe due to the need for a quick and nasty fix for the main trade move for the given week.

        The thing is, despite Shipley’s slow start last week he was again selected, in a team with supposed class (I use the word advisedly given GWs’ un-classy effort at the Cattery), he was, from the perspective of foresight just a weak choice for those with limited options: the price I have paid for Taranto!

        With Hindsight (and perhaps arguably also foresight), I would have been better off to have kept with my original low cost rookie McInerny (who I had immediately prior to switching to Shitley) with some DPP dancing. But even McInerny, using foresight, has JS issues, even though he wouldn’t be expected to dish up a “6” from 71% GT unless KO’ed.

        Live and learn . . .

          We all had trading reasons to get in Shipley, however, I never watched his JLT form and you can take what Calvin says as face value. The bottom line its just a game.
          After last nights performance, I am reluctant to take on any GWS players further more!

        One of the main reasons I got Bont in was bc of easy matchups vs suns and lions these two weeks so I would be assured I would have made some good money even if I had to trade him. Now one of those weeks is gone and it doesn’t seem very worth it anymore.
