    Mitchell such a good player being wasted at this gross of a hawthorn team sorry to hawk fans but that hawks team is nothing compared to that 3peat team. Mitchell should look else where a team that is even looks like having a heart and soul and wants to crack a top 8 maybe Bombers? since they were trying to get Dunkley but fell through.

      we don’t want and will not take titch. have shiel, dasher, zez, mcgrath, langers, cadlwell, perkins who I would all rather at a centre bounce than titch. remember, we are supposed to be in the bottom 4, and we still don’t want to chase a premiership when we aren’t ready. plus will get a good midfielder at the draft this year. no point getting tich

        What a joke. The only one you’d arguably have ahead of Titch at a centre bounce is Merrett. Let’s not talk rubbish now. Nearly fell over at the mention of Langford, Caldwell and Perkins.

          dunno what your on about mate. parish is easily better than titch, he actually does damage and makes things happen unlike titch who gets 50 disposals and does nothing with them. Coming from a pies fan i dont think that essendon need titch, nor would titch make them any better.

            Well said Toby. Titch also doesn’t fit the age profile of the rest of the group.

    pendlebury or houston?

    • Bill

      June 7, 2021 at 7:19 pm

      Pendles is carrying an injury, and Houston we have a problem.

          depends if pendles continues his half back role which he seems to score well or houston if he isnt injured

    Why can’t we treat it like Richmond and West Coast are on the bye for this round? Their scores aren’t counted this week and give players from these two teams their average scores for next week. Keep trades to 3 as per usual. Simples

    There was talk of Richmond and west coast having their byes rnd 14 last week. Therefore an extra trade this week and an extra trade next week seems more than fair. Of course different coaches will be advantaged by different forms of assistance or compensation but an extra trade seems fair.

    • Vinny

      June 7, 2021 at 9:28 pm

      Or no compensation at all. After all we’re all in the same boat.

    So how many players is everyone expecting on field R14? Everything going perfect I’ll have 19 but in reality if I manage 17 scorers I’ll be happy.

    • Marc Russell

      Id like to know how many if any extra trades we get for RD 14 before doing this weeks
      That game being shifted lopsided my structure, if we get 4 trades i should be able to get 18
