More ruck woes, defender trades, possible DPPs, rookie crisis – Ep. 588

Calvin’s captains get a rocket, the new DPPs that will land next week are looked at, the sub rule is covered and trading strategy with a lack of rookies coming through is discussed.

Episode guide

4:00 – Calvin was happy with Warnie’s phonecall telling him about Jarrod Witts being a late out and getting Tim English for 145.

Doc – gone
Day – gone

Can already foresee Ginbey rested, Wilmot dropped, and Nick Daicos is gonna pull a hammy in training guaranteed.

2 or more original glazed donuts this week

Personally thought ROHAN was way worse than the DAY incident. Won’t be surprised if they appeal the DAY incident. No damage to the opponent, was not a violent motion, took him to ground arms pinned yes but well executed tackle it seemed.

MRO and inconsistent/irrational decisions.

Warnie
You’ve got a huge input within the AFL fantasy world
Any chance you could influence those in charge to move forward the new DPP this week with all the carnage especially in the back line 😳
Take one look at the leader Ben’s side whose in a world of trouble
Doc and Day out with some of the rest no certainty to play Ginbey Fahey Bergman and Wilmot he could have only two players – Dawson and Daicos 😳
This truly proves this game is 90% luck and 10% skill
Good luck to everyone especially Ben

It’s strange how the more that good players are prepared for bad luck ahead of time, the less they fall mercy to it.

Part of the skill is having contingency plans in place. Then there’s continually rotating rookies who aren’t playing already, or scoring poorly and likely to be dropped, instead of luxury trading premiums sideways in the first month etc, or chasing scores from previous weeks.

I had had 4 omissions to the midfield last week, plus Constable already out. Still fielded a full 22, with multiple Emergency options in all positions. Is that bad luck, good luck, or good preparation?

Hoping someone can confirm the changes to DPP. Is it 4 games that a player needs to be eligible for DPP change? So even with Day being out, he’s still good to go for being a DPP mid now also?

Keen to upgrade Worpel this week. Not enough to get to Serong. Are Warner / Wood decent options?
