    So how do we think goodes will go Saturday night Worth putting a big C on him

    • PurpleArmy (aka Space Goats)

      March 22, 2012 at 10:01 pm

      prob be the biggest scorer for Sydney, Mumford could also be a good one

      Malceski on the wing looks juicy too

      • Alex's All Stars

        March 23, 2012 at 3:19 am

        Cheski looks very tasty, so tasty I’ve brought him into my side.
        NAB Cup stats for Cheski look good too.

        Anyone else notice that Rhys Shaw isn’t listed?
        Does anyone know why?

    Should i stick with Steve Clifton put him on the bench just hope he gets a opportunity or get in a definite rookie that will play rd 1?

    • MrCharisma

      March 22, 2012 at 10:05 pm

      Get a rookie starting round 1 mate. Gotta get those $$ rolling ASAP

  3. shadowboxer89

    March 22, 2012 at 9:52 pm

    does anyone think Steve Clifton will play he is emergency or should i trade him in a for a certain rookie that will play rd 1?

    • jAckeNatoR

      March 22, 2012 at 9:58 pm

      he will play at some stage this year so if ur keen to wait its up to you but i’d trade him out

    • Magpie28

      March 22, 2012 at 10:14 pm

      Sheedy is foxing… he’s known to do this. Shiels is fools gold, but Clifton’s the real deal

  4. jAckeNatoR

    March 22, 2012 at 9:52 pm

    bugg or mohr??

      Why no love for Homebush?

  5. MrCharisma

    March 22, 2012 at 9:56 pm

    Looks like a straight swap from Miles to Shiel

  6. podsidaisY

    March 22, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    DT TALK Heppell – 296841 – just a few spots left!

      I’m in! Get around it

  7. MrCharisma

    March 22, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    Start Shiel or JMac?

    • Magpie28

      March 22, 2012 at 10:08 pm

      You’ve answered your own question there

    Fellas –

    Delidio and Sloane


    Mackie and Watson


    • MrCharisma

      March 22, 2012 at 10:27 pm

      Watson and Deledio =)

    • MrCharisma

      March 22, 2012 at 10:28 pm

      Although Mackie might score well with Geelong’s injuries and retired players so I’d lean towards option 2 imo

    March 22, 2012 at 10:10 pm

    Question: If a GWS or Swans player is selected as an emergency can that be changed after they play? Also vice-versa.

    • Magpie28

      March 22, 2012 at 10:12 pm

      No… and vice versa

      • Parallel Andy

        March 22, 2012 at 10:15 pm

        Thanks mate

        • Magpie28

          March 22, 2012 at 10:42 pm

          You know it makes sense

  10. MrCharisma

    March 22, 2012 at 10:23 pm

    Is anyone else struggling to find any decent rookies this year?

    • Magpie28

      March 22, 2012 at 10:48 pm

      Can I get an Aaaaamen?!

      Looking for a good rookie mid/def DPP – basically gave up

  11. KGENE

    March 22, 2012 at 10:47 pm

    508098 is the code for a league if you have adopted GWS as your second team – your first sydney team. Get on the GIANTS!!

  12. swanlow36

    March 22, 2012 at 10:54 pm

    Two spots left in 771761- only if you finished in the top 1000.

    March 22, 2012 at 11:15 pm

    had one more league left to fill so join guys 926723 :)

  14. James

    March 22, 2012 at 11:33 pm

    Adam Kennedy there to plug a gap in defence, or a genuine small defender? It’s sort of him vs Jeremy Cameron for my final GWS forward (already have Devon Smith there).

    Heath Shaw Or G.Birchill Lads? looking for consistency

    • Nick

      March 23, 2012 at 3:02 am

      historically birchall is more consistent. But shaw sometimes plays more of a shut down role which lessens his DT potential

  16. Nick

    March 23, 2012 at 3:00 am

    interesting not many people have picked Luke Shuey, think he could have a solid year and average 90+ pretty easily

  17. Geoff

    March 23, 2012 at 3:52 am

    Anyone read the article with Sydney rotate ruckmen?
    Surely that’s the other two, not Mumsy?

  18. marigoldman

    March 23, 2012 at 11:21 am

    Lots of you looking for another league to join so here’s another:
    Motley DT Crue – 219774

    when are our dreamteam fixtures released?

    • Austin

      March 24, 2012 at 6:10 pm

      End of round 1.
