Cash cow culling! Chop Grundy and Rowell? Who are the best of the new DPPs? – Ep. 506

PODCAST: It’s moving season with some big trades happening over the next couple of weeks.

We’re five rounds down and the teams at the top are looking pretty good … while we try to play catch up! It’s time to start making your move with some upgrades and downgrades which can be helped by the new DPPs that have dropped in the game. There’s plenty to get through as there are more heads on the copping block than points that bloody Sicily scored in the first quarter. Let’s do this!

    Holding Grundy as I need to fix up my on field mid rookies at M7 & M8 first..

    In that sense, should I upgrade Ward to Steele/Miller/Macrae, or target value like Crisp/Guthrie/Titch/Duncan, allowing me some extra $$ for future weks??

    thoughts on mcinerney? I think great value but no ones talking about him

    Noah Anderson has gone past Rowell, who has an outside game which Rowell does not have.

    NOW, see how good it is listening to these 2 blokes without big mouth Calvin who gives wrong info most of the time.

      I’d listen to Cal just for his comedic value. I bet good average finishing position is higher than yours.

    I wouldn’t be bringing in Tom Mitchell.
    Geelong can be crap side on occasions.
    Every opposing team will still be shutting Tom down.

      Crap side on occasions? It’s far more often than that.

        Well, they beat Brisbane last week, so they’re not crap all of the time- just dreadful when you least expect it.

        It comes from having a coach who thinks he’s Alastair Clarkson, when he’s just a bum who should have been told to pack his bags years ago. Piss off, Scott!

          Bailey smith or jack crisp this week? Crisp plan would be hodl until bowey fattens and have that extra 100k or so for future use. I think the score similar this week

            I went Crisp too.
