    Seeing you could Trade players in up until the day b4 the game was good for me as Sunday morning I looked at my side and I had Toranto in my side but I Traded out Toranto and brought Tyson in to make a bit of cash and I also had Pearce on my backline so then I had 378K left. The reason I done that was because I wanted to bring Williams into my Backline. So I’ve made 2 Trades and have Zacy in my backline. That was one game now I have Mr Williams for the rest of the year

      I agree and it was a Trade I had to make if I wanted Williams

        Plus I have been waiting for Tyson to play. The other week I saw a clip on the Nth sight with Noble saying he likes Tyson, and that was in my thoughts

    Oscard McDonald the sub scored 56 and lost $86K to a new price of $224K. Ummm, pretty sure there is something wrong here.

    Should I downgrade Rowell to Sholl or Heppell?

      I would bring in Sholl only because I think he could make more money. Heppell better player but with Adelaides young side I think I would choose Sholl. Just remember what Selby said its not about how the player scored its about who the player comes up against and look how the Lion’s scored.

      Warnie brings him up (49 min mark) and they talk about him for a minute or more.

    I regret everything

    So, I had both Danger and Rowell. Living the dream.

    Current trade sits at:
    Danger > Stephenson
    Rowell > Caldwell (Moved Caldwell to forward and Braeden Campbell to Mid).

    Sholl or Caldwell I guess is my major question. 300k in the bank for the inevitable problem next week.

    Hi all,

    Have 350 in the bank thinking Rowell to dusty and DeGoey to Rowe any thoughts, will put another 300 in the bank

      Hi Owen I don’t think it’s a good move having 650k in the bank when that money could be earning points on field. Rowell to Dusty ok but surely you can turn Degoey into something decent. If not swapping rookies around for other rookies would be better

        Thanks Pow, think your right. Will go with the Dusty trade and look for another upgrade maybe De Goey to a Dunkley, if the current rooks keep playing
