    Cleary or Khamis? Khamis might have better JS but Cleary might have more consistent high scores.

      Keen to hear from any Bulldogs supporters on this too. I don’t mind paying slightly more for Khamis if he’s more likely to hang around

    Macrae then, for reasons only known to him decided to put the C on Gawn!

    I think S Bolton is the new Player that will/Should become popular now that Dusty has had a few games. Plus Bolton has scored well over the last 3 Rounds. Week before last I Traded in Zorko. Last week it was out of O’Meara and Serong and I choice to bring in O’Meara. This week its out of Serong or Bolton. Seeing Serong suites my BYE structure he might come in. Only if no BYE’s GRrrrrrrr

    GWS will be the wait and see. Will there be changes in positional play with the new coach?

    Their season is about dead, so will we see some change?

    I always adjust my team to their dollar value, in list view.
    Sicdog started as a risky D6 and has risen over time to be a handy D3..
    Sh*tfield and Sinclair were in a race to the bottom.
    Sinclair has steadied. See how he rises in the absence of Steele.
    Sh*tfield has fallen into the abyss..
    I threw in a cheap flashlight after him,
    see if he can find his was out against the Eagles.

      May 17, 2022 at 5:53 pm

    Do I go Steele to Mills, Trac or BCrouch now that Steele is out and he will be no1 in their midfield? Leaves me some more coin to upgrade cash cows.
