      honestly, don’t think Grundy’s 85 will look too bad compared to those who have the C on Gawn, currently on 23 at half time! So glad I change the C to Merret before the game.

        85 isn’t a disaster i reckon taranto goes about 120, still, so much planning then such a simple thing.

    So pissed with Essendon’s performance, and Gawn and Grundy. Gawn can’t stay, can he? Downgrade to WItts, Draper or cheap defender (Sholl or Jiath) through DPP of McEvoy. Or am I being too reactionary???

      Kind of torn to what to do. As much as everyone is saying rucks are doomed and Gawn needs to go, really want to hold him and get more than one week of data. Use early trades to get any rookies I missed.

        Puds you are correct. Premium rucks may be doomed but we all need to field 2 rucks each week. Until you trade them you have not lost money. Get to round 6 and the first lot of DPP’s with 30 playing players each week and then you can make decisions. I missed Rowe so he will be the trade that I will need to possibly rectify but getting 30 starters next week will remain my priority. If the total of your players scores exceeds their breakevens for the week you are not going backwards is you have avoided injuries and r2 selection dramas. If you have managed that task then you can indulge in so called luxury trades. Just my views Puds.

          For me though, I haven’t missed out on a rookie yet. So can I downgrade Gawn to an uber premo in Macrae knowing that I have a more reliable captain option. If Max doesn’t get 110+ against a rookie then that’s poor

            Bit premature on the rucks I reckon, Meek was excellent in a ruck tag roll, especially early on, Grundy got double teamed by a much improved English and his nemesis Steph. Both smashed the opposition in hit outs and there seems to be plenty of throw ins and ball ups, their midfields got smashed though so I wonder if that had something to do with it….

    I’m pretty happy with my team so far and think I can work with it.

    The exceptions are: taking Gawn for captain instead of Macrae; selecting O.Henry instead of J.Rowe (that is a certain trade); and taking Jordon Clark and De Goey (although they could improve).

    So you reckon that premium rucks are a thing of the past?

      I think by the end of the season Grawndy is still the goal, Clark was fine, had 80 supercoach which matched his actual output to my eye from what I watched, plenty of worse players at Geelong so should hold his spot and at his price even 54 is not a disaster. DeGoey did exactly as expected, not enough when compared to clark etc thanks to the extra $180k he cost, get the real Dusty, not this cheap and vastly inferior Chinese knock off homebrand version, the extra $110k (more now) was always going to win out long term, but has already paid off short term too. Maybe swap to Caldwell, he looked really good, for a guy with less than 15 games under his belt.

    There is simply nothing like fantasy to create a true sense of reality. Good scores sitting on the bench. Risky picks that performed and risky picks that didn’t. Premium picks that performed and premium picks that were, underwhelming at best. Incorrect captain choice (my call) and your best mate making a good choice resulting in him being able to remind you for the next week what a total idiot you were as often as he wishes until round two. Currently he his being considerate. Just 23. Make that 25! Grrrrrr. Lol and just 3 games left in the round. Yet we keep playing. You have to love the game!!

    So how’s everyone’s opening round going? I have 10 to play still, think I’ll bank between 2000-2100 with an extra 120 or so, maybe more, lost to poor on field rook choices (Got Gulden though, my “play rooks with interesting names” rule paid off for Errol) and my TBC captain stuff up.

    Pretty ok with this, will see how it ends up I guess but barring a couple of doughnuts I suspect it will be far from one of my traditional rank 50k out to 120k or so efforts. May the fantasy gods smile on you.
