    1) Rowe -> Atu (and maybe field, otherwise F Macrae)
    2) Highmore -> RCD (bench) or
    3) H Jones -> Frederick (bench)

    What happened to the Friday night show which was on Facebook??
    The revealing of the teams with the ins&outs and the reaction of you three was quite funny

      Time is a massive factor. We’re doing more content than ever, so something had to give – especially on a Friday night!! Hopefully now that this is on a Thursday night while there are no Thurs games, it can be current. We are fairly active on social.

      Just so you’re not missing out, here’s our schedule for AFL website stuff.

      Brockman to Farrar. Daniel is priced at 82 and should outperform that from here on

      April 30, 2021 at 3:49 pm

      Only as a last resort, but based on his game last week id say there is a pretty high chance he’ll be dropped this week.

    is andy brayshaw a good pod going down from dunkley?
    lets me go lycett to gawn next week, then gulden up to another fallen premo, rather than zeibell who doesnt let me get to gawn next week. Dont think his runs gonna last forever.
    rank 12k so i have to do something different

    DeGoey -> Farrar and Goulden -> Andrew Brayshaw
    T. Phillips -> Poulter and DeGoey or Goulden -> Jack Macrae

    really not sure which way to go on this

    J. Hunt to Treloar OR J. Rowe to Bolton?!

    Rowe a chance to get rested this week or next and Hunt playing the Kangaroos, BUT it’s Treloar……..

      April 30, 2021 at 12:46 pm

      Or Rowe out for Sean Darcy?

      Averaging 99 over the last 3 including 2 100+ games, and can swing him to R2 when it’s time to offload Flynn

        April 30, 2021 at 3:52 pm

        Seeing Brice on Twitter mentioned Flynn is named as starting Ruck in the VFL sort of answers my question. Rowe out and Darcy in it is..

        Treloar, or another underpriced premo, will have to wait another week at least…….

      • Belly


        April 30, 2021 at 4:11 pm

        I think Rowe gets rested this week and its sounding like Mummy is in so might mean Flynn gets a rest which will screw a lot of people plans, thankfully we will know tonight.
        I was thinking could Darcy be an option to allow me to keep Flynn but if he gets rested for more than a week then it’s going to be slow going with any further cash generation, so for $190k it might be worth a shot until the byes, he has the R14 so helps in that regard.
        You’ll just be nervy 24/7 that he doesnt get injured… Freo also play most of their games on a Sunday until the byes which isnt ideal.

          Darcy managed 23points against NicNat last year….

    Petracca & Steele god options for Dunkley & Macrae? Both low ownership and top 8 mids. Pretty expensive though. Thoughts

    Flynn out /time to panic.

    • Belly


      April 30, 2021 at 7:22 pm

      Total PIA.
      It’s not viable to keep him as R2 imo now, I’m hitting the bullet and going up to Grundy and hopefully forgetting about my Rucks for the rest of the year.
      Was already going Dunks to Treloar so 2 good ins, just means I will miss trading out a dud rook to Farrar and wont have a stack of cash to go another dud rook up to Ridley next week.
      Or having written that maybe I’ll hit reverse trade…

    Not sure if this is the place to post this question but this Round I wanted to bring in a Bulldog mid as I the only dog in my team is A Scott. This week I brought in Treloar. After watching the game last night against the Tigers does anyone else think that Treloar didn’t look right. He scored 100 but one stage he ran to far without bouncing the ball -3 so he lost 6 points there and at one stage he ran towards goal after Bruce took the mark. Bruce kicked the ball to Treloar but his mark was spoilt. I thought Treloar was a more reliable player. C MON DukxNutz
