Trade hard now, or forever hold your trades
This year I am using the pre season to use up as many trades as I can in a hope the novilty wares off by the season proper.
Hello, my name is Roy and I’m a tradaholic. Ok, so that is the first step in my recovery after 3 years of hard core trading that has left me on the brink of a DT breakdown and strained many of my relationships over that period. The second step is to pull trades left right and centre in the pre season, so hopefully I will not have the urge so early in the season. My trades at this stage of the year can be prompted by a rumour, a bad pre season game, a good pre season game or even form on the track like Shaun Hampson picking up Megan Gale earned him a look (for 2 seconds until I remembered that is the only time he has scored something good).
Here is a rough list of my “INS” and “OUTS” over the weekend for one reason or another, for better or worse. There were other minor changes for money sake between players who are rostered for the NAB this weekend that I wont bother mentioning because they are irrelevant at this stage.
Issac Smith (Haw, Fwd)- Two uninspiring scores saw Smith get the arse for a while
Bachar Houli (Rich, Mid)- Too soft to pull the boots on
Cameron Bruce (Haw, Def)- Love Brucey but see above
Nick Lower (Freo, Def)- Could be a regular player for a bargain price, after 2 x 10 possession games.
Patty Dangerfield (adel, Mid/Fwd)- Liked the look of him in the middle. Seemed to have a new found hunger/confidence.
Jack Grimes (Melb, Def)- Swapped him and Bruce around for the 11th time. He was captain backline and his team mates looked for him at every opportunity. I enjoyed the way he kicked for himself multiple times from full back.
What changes did you make?
