    Why are so many people looking to trade out B. Crouch? He went 109, 109, 128 before being whacked in the nose and sitting out nearly a whole quarter. Looks the fittest he’s ever been. Surely there are more problems to handle then trading him out…

          “Crows midfielder Brad Crouch suffered a suspected broken nose in the game but should be fine to play next week.”

          He’s too tough to sook over a little broken nose.

      I’m looking at something like Setters to rookie and Smith > Laird.

      You can switch burgess fwd if you want to get a def rookie (Rotham or if Lockart named).

      The fwd/def rookies arent amazing though, unless a nice one is named this week.

      I’m umming and ahhing about getting Ross in for Gibbons.

      Ultimately teamsheets will make the decision easier

      If you’re playing Setters in field and that’s all you can get to, it works. You won’t make much cash off him but should get a solid 60

    1. Crisp/Williams –> Zak Jones/Heeney (via DPP)

    2. Crisp/Setterfield –>Zak Jones/Newnes

    3. Hold Crisp???

    thinking Zak Jones – seems underpriced and the role looks good. Can’t get to Laird without meaning the second trade needs to be down to a rookie.

    Trading out Parker and holding Setterfield. I am fairly convinced that trading in Ross for Parker (DPP Setterfield) and Hore for Burgees will make more money in the long run. Will consider trading Setterfield next week if there are any decent rookies. Not liking Parkers break even at the moment.

    Playing the waiting game here… 6k in the bank currently need to build up a salary for a push on a unique premium in form (ie: Neale,bont)

    Do I go:
    Zac Williams>scrimshaw
    Gibbons>Ross

    Gives me 174k in the bank so I can hopefully do another downgrade next week then upgrade for cousins, Brodie Smith, Matt Parker or howe.

    D: Whitfield, LLllloyd, B Smith, Williams, Duursma, Scrimshaw (Clark, Lockhart)

    F: Danger, Kelly, Heeney, Worps, Drew, Parker (Petrucelle, Burgess)

    1) Clark + Parker > Rookie DEF + Caleb Daniels
    2) Mumford + Treloar > Grundy + C Daniels = structure change.
    3) Drew + Parker > Daniels + FWD Rookie

    I seem to be stuck on Daniels. Must be due to his imminent DPP…!

    Assuming I do bring in Caleb Daniel, and I’ve looked at it and liked it – it does mean that a rookie will have to play on the ground.

    MID: MaCrae, Brayshaw, Conigs, Rocky, Libba, Walsh, Butters, Constable (Scott, Stack)

    181k in the bank.

    Initial thoughts are betweem:
    Duurs/Burgess -> Hore (traded him out last week FFS)
    Scott -> Ross
    Balta -> a dirty sponge
    Setters -> possibly a premo

      How about Scott or Butters to Ross and Setters to Premo. Wouldn’t trade Duursma yet unless he’s rested.

      Trade Clark to Rotham or another 200k rookie play Scrimshaw on field.
      Then will leave you with 250k to either upgrade Parker, Drew or Duursma.
