Perspective

A bit of perspective is needed this week. There is hysteria all over the place about jumping on and off players before the price rise/fall. These are trades we are burning people! You did your research so trust in it. If you bought shares in BHP and they dropped a few dollars in the first two weeks would you quickly sell them off? Not likely.

A bit of perspective is needed this week. There is hysteria all over the place about jumping on and off players before the price rise/fall. These are trades we are burning people! You did your research so trust in it. If you bought shares in BHP and they dropped a few dollars in the first two weeks would you quickly sell them off? Not likely. There are ups and downs, that’s DT, the game we play. But there is one constant… There are 24 trades and once they are gone they are gone. As Roy said earlier, you’ll need a reason to trade, do you have one?

I just want to highlight the fortunes of two players, one has been called a spud and everyone wants to jump off and the other is being called the new king. Their prices are different, ill grant that but their seasons have been quite closely matched and they have been quite similar in scoring potential.

Week 1

Andrew Krakour compiles a nice 96 before being subbed for the last quarter.

Rhys Palmer receives a heavy knock before regaining composure to compile 55 before being subbed during a 3rd quarter in which he had already amassed 11 possessions.

One could argue Palmer was on his way to getting a nice score and Krak was already there.

Week 2

Andrew Krakour comes on for the last quarter and quickly amasses 48

Rhys Palmer also come on around the same time and compiles a quick fire 53

Whether or not they scored so quickly because they were fresh is irrelevant, they both have shown they can find it and score well.

The new sub rule is a lot of things but there is one thing about it that I think we can bank on. Players wont (I hope) be subs for more than one or two weeks in a row. It will ruin their match fitness and put said player behind the eight ball. With that being said I think both of these players can look forward to playing a full game this week.

Palmers B.E of 121 may be just out of reach but I’ll back him to get around the ton.

As I said earlier these guys have had similar seasons so why one is a spud and one is not is beyond me. (Remember Krak would be around the same price if he didn’t have the jail discount) If I had palmer I’d be waiting a few more weeks before offloading. It might be frustrating now but wait until he plays a full game at least! He has proven he can average over 80 for a few seasons; trust your pick for another few weeks. If you need to trade use this week to consolidate your rookies and get some nice cash flow happening.  Unless you have a former bulldog who went to Sydney…
