    Re: Round 8 trades

    So with NicNat out, I'm strongly considering a double down this week. English to OMc and Banfield to Spargo.

    Starting the round with $307k in the bank already, those moves leave me with an absurd amount of cash ($627k) but I can then get (Oliver/Crouch) and (Simmo/Hurley) next week and enough left over to get Gray post Rd 10.

    Re: Round 8 trades

    What's your reasoning behind that one Wheedus? Is English likely to be dropped this week?

    Building a warchest like that sounds good in theory, but if you run into an injury or two you might have to put the plans to the side. I think facilitating an upgrade when possible is always the best option.

    Re: Round 8 trades

    Are you guys talking RDT for those BE's?

    My mate at work is off to a flyer (top 10 rdt) so he bought the RDT gold, and the BE's for Fin (57) and Doedee (63) in that are quite different from what tooserious has. If those BE's are SC related, then carry on.

    I am thinking i will hold both Fin and Doedee this week, probably move on one of banfield or brayshaw for spargo, then i could move raynor to Crouch. I also like the idea of moving English to Mcinerney, but i need to upgrade this week and i don't want to miss spargo who is looking close to a must have.

    I will back Finlayson into outscoring what banfield/brayshaw would be putting out now that he will hopefully move back to defence.

    Pretty much building the war chest and taking a punt that OMc represents slightly better cover than English. If English is rested then it's decision made easy but he's maxed out so I was going to trade at some point over the coming weeks anyway. Oliver has some more cash to lose and I'm happy to wear a small increase on Crouch to get another look at him.

    Strong claim on twitter that Nank is being rested this week.

    Yeah fair. If English is rested, 100% seems the right way to go with Spargo looking too good to pass up also. Was just reading Trengrove had a good game in the VFL on the weekend so sounds like it might eventuate.

    Buddy out again this week.
    Held him this long may as well keep holding

    Vindicates my decision to trade

    Wish I'd brought in JPK over Zerrett last week. He loves the slop. Friday night going to be diabolical in Melbourne.

    Longmire added there was no guarantee Franklin would be fit to return to the side next week for their home Saturday night clash with Fremantle.

    Any chance Walters makes a miraculous recovery?
    This post was more than likely SC based.
    If in doubt, assume it was.

    I've done great holding these 1 week injuries, with Kelly going to 6 weeks and Lance heading to 3 at least.

    Yeah pleased I traded Kelly and Buddy so far, but it's making me think about next year and not picking players from team's where the coach's are vague/dodgy (Leon Cameron mainly lol)

    Nank still in the team as it currently stands. Wonder if he will be named and then just a late out if at all. Also wondering where these rumours are coming from, the critic in me thinks its been started by SC Nicnat owners.
    Only ever talking SC

    Yeah not a reliable source, Soldo named on extended bench not sure if he had been in the emergencies in previous rounds
