    Who’s job security is better? Carroll or Mccomb? Who is the better pick this week?

      McComb. I would be worried about Carroll’s JS when Hewett returns. Even if he does hold, his role will change and scoring will dry up.

    Do we bite the bullet and trade Hewett, or give him one last week?

      We need more news first either way to make a decent decision. The only decent report was Mitch Clery’s initial news on the possibility of of him missing last week’s game. It’s been dark ever since. I’d hate to go one way on this for it to bite me back the following week.

      Rumor going around is round 10

    Hey guys trade help please :)


    Connor McDonald > McComb
    Tim English > Taranto


    Hold English
    McDonald > Carroll
    Xerri > Parker


    Xerri > McComb
    JHF > Cripps/Miller
    Would have to play Dixon/Durdin to cover Tim English.

      I think B would be best mate. You’ve already held English for this long, you might as well ride it out.

        Good chance to be back to next week; can imagine the scenario they didn’t pick him this week because of the trip to Adelaide + off a short break.

          Carlton are playing at Marvel which is in Melbourne.

    Hey Cal why don’t you ever mention C Serong in your Trades. You guys were telling everyone before the start of the year he ticks all box’s but I haven’t heard you guys mention his name since. And on M Crouch who would have a player in there side that has been missing for over a year through injury. Only the people who listen to you. I think it was after Rnd 2 or 3 you told everyone to Trade out Gawn for Pruess. Hows that going? Ow and you told everyone its time to Trade out Rowell. Hows that going? I’m not silly enough to follow all those suggestions because I know my footy but these poor kids look up to you and follow the advice you give them because you call yourself an expert. No wonder your ranked well

      Moot mentioning Serong at this point – had five games and only produced one ton with 3 60s; Also maintaining TOG slightly on the low side – his best being 81%. He’s not a target for most people now.

      M Crouch was 30% discount to start the year not bad for a proven fantasy player to start with. Just wondering if U have Sicdog in your side missed a whole year off footy through injury only fools would of started with him in there side Cripps last 2 season have been absolutely dog shit hope U didn’t start with him this year. Witts/Pruess weren’t options either with the amount of footy they missed W.Brodie couldn’t get a game at GC no way he was great pick to start the year with. My advice in don’t listen to the podcast mate if they give such bad advice.

    Callum Mills, you all talk him up but do you have him in your teams? BE of 80 I would assume he is a must have.
    Hewett (I have him as a Mid) to Mills?

    Who scores more this week?
    Stengle vs GWS or C.Curnow vs Radelaide

    • Type0negative

      May 7, 2022 at 12:53 pm

      Curnow would be a worthwhile pick.
      I don’t get why Carlton handball so often.
      If they kicked it more, Harry would kick 100 and
      Curnow 60-70+

  8. Double Parked

    May 6, 2022 at 4:53 pm

    Hewett -> Rozee or Jack Hayes -> Mccomb

    • Phteven

      May 6, 2022 at 5:07 pm

      Seeing that my nickname is Combdog, i suggest you get McComb!!
