    What order to get in: Rockliff, Cox, Stokes and why??

      June 13, 2013 at 5:17 pm

      Stokes, Rocky then Cox. Rocky and Stokes in their prime whereas Cox is ageing

      Hi can anyone help me do this trade in Dreamteam as it’s not allowing me.

      I’m trading out a Midfielder,
      then moving a Ruck/Mid to Mid
      then moving a Forw/Ruck to Ruck
      then moving a Defender/Forw to Forward
      and trying to trade a Defender in.

      The pricing is Ok but it doesn’t give me these options in trade Wiz.

      rockliff, stokes, cox


    June 13, 2013 at 4:08 pm

    Are these some good trades? Terlich to Duffield and Evans to Hrovat. this leaves me with 400k for next week.

    Any point waiting for Blicavs to make another jump in price ? Or should I trade Nicholls for him this week (as opposed to Currie) and take the 170,000

    • Seamus

      June 13, 2013 at 7:00 pm

      blicavs BE is still negative so id keep him for a couple more weeks. he should get to ~$330000 if he gets 70’s which is quite reasonable to expect

    June 13, 2013 at 6:14 pm

    Good trades
    Dwyer to daniher
    Terlich to birchall
    Leaves me with over 100k to upgrade laird next week to avoid a doughnut

    DEF: B. Goddard, D. Heppell, N. Malceski, B. Gibbs, N. Vlaustin, D. Terlich (J. Pittard, J. Thurlow)

    CASH LEFT: $2,000

    Would love some thoughts on what trades I should do this week. Was going to go Blicavs to Nichols, but not sure what the other trade should be as I am not looking good for round 13. I was considering going Terlich to Hanley and hope that pittard plays next week so that I can field 18.

    RUCK: kreuzer, rowe (cox, blicavs)

    FWD: bartel, martin, rockliff, mcaffer, dwyer, staker (johnson, kennedy)

    Have 17 definite starters with hrovat, dwyer likey starters making it 19. Also pretty sure im going to go rowe > nicholls as my first trade this week giving me 20 likely starters for this week unless anyone can suggest a better trade for me.

    I’m stuck what to do with my second trade this week and would appreciate any suggestions or thoughts. I should have 17 starters next week not including any trades this week. Have a big rivalry match next week against my cousin and wouldnt mind knocking him off.

    • bomber_tom

      June 13, 2013 at 8:08 pm

      Rowe > Nicholls is good, I recommend upgrading Crouch.

      • Adam

        June 13, 2013 at 8:12 pm

        yee was my thoughts too. wat do you think of going rowe > nicholls and crouch > ellis (via a defender dpp)?

    DEF: Goddard, Heppell, Hanley, Birchall, Gibbs, Vlaustin (*Terlich, *Thurlow)
    MID: GAJ, Swan, Pendles, Waston, Moloney, O’Meara, Neade, *Evans (*T.Mitchell, *Priddis)
    RUC: Kreuzer, Leuenberger (Cox, Gawn)
    FWD: Martin, Rocky, Staker, Dwyer, Macaffer, *Bartel (*SJ, *JJK)


    I’m stuck.

    Moloney > Barlow/Ellis with Vlaustin MID via DPP?
    Leuenberger/Neade > Nicholls with Cox FWD via DPP?

    1) Do you think Ellis will be the sub? If so I will go Barlow, but if not, Ellis’s price rise is too tempting.
    2) Is it wise to keep Leuey in the ruck or will Nicholls give pretty much the same results. Leuey has a pretty high BE, coming off injury and starting at FF, but leaves me with 17 players. On that note, if Nicholls is my emergency in the ruck, do I get his points or only if one of Kreuzer or Leuey don’t play?

    • bomber_tom

      June 13, 2013 at 8:11 pm

      Nice trades, stick with em :)

      What do you think of mine, Evans and Matt Jones out and Barlow and Cornes in

      • stimpy

        June 13, 2013 at 8:29 pm

        yeah nice,good trades…my midfield atm,swan pendle,ablett,watson,barlow,Smitchell,cotchin,Tmitchell(evans,priddis)…

    June 13, 2013 at 8:13 pm

    With berger being named, it opens up other options for me as im not gonna trade him lol

    keeping in mind my rd 13 is on shaky ground

    evans/naismith (my 89ker ruck lol, NEVER thought id trade him) > barlow/nicholls
    evans/blicavs (do i really need 2 bench rucks, like wtf lol) > barlow/nicholls
    jjk/terlich > barlow/duffman < gets me instant points!! who knows jjk may not even play next week :/

    just unsure if i need nicholls with cos/berger/blitz….how important is he lolz ??

    thoughts would be appreciated

    June 13, 2013 at 8:56 pm

    What are the chances of hrovat being sub? Should i reverse changes and get another rook that has had another rnd11 bye if their is any?

    • bomber_tom

      June 13, 2013 at 9:16 pm

      I say 3/1 on him being the sub.

        • Jason

          June 13, 2013 at 10:08 pm

          I don’t reckon he’ll be the sub because he isn’t that type and the Bulldogs would want to be trying to get as much game time as possible into him. Hrovat is more of a contested ball king type rather than a player who can break the lines.

  19. Billy

    June 13, 2013 at 9:37 pm

    Goddard, Birchall, Gibbs, Ellis, Vlastuin, Staker (Terlich, Thurlow)
    Ablett, Swan, Pendles, Watson, Danger, Omeara, Fyfe, Goodes (Mitchell, Martin)
    Burger, Nicholls (Cox, Blicavs)
    Bartel, Martin, Rockliff, Buddy, Macaffer, Rowe (Kennedy, LeCras)

    Trades made: Ohailpin-nicholls, Evans-Martin

    gday guys just need a quick hand in deciding trades this week. Like a lot of ooaches i have reversed the trade of Burger to Nicholls. instead i opted for ohailpin to nicholls for some cash generation later on while holding onto a low break even blicavs and back early from injury burger.

    double downgrading this week frees up $300k for barlow next week

    any thoughts would be much appreciated! thanks guys!

    • Billy

      June 13, 2013 at 9:43 pm

      martin or hrovat was my question!

      • inthefog

        June 13, 2013 at 10:13 pm

        I’d imagine Hrovat has more JS. I prefer my rookies to be playing for bottom teams.

  20. Deeyon

    June 13, 2013 at 10:25 pm

    As a Richmond supporter I really don’t think Ellis would play this week if they were going to give him the vest.

    With that in mind;

    I went Blicavs > Nicholls

    Pittard > Ellis

    I have reluctantly missed out on Hrovat, but I think Ellis and he should make the same amount of money this week and Ellis will be one of my best 6 defenders for the rest of the season I would imagine.

    Any thoughts are super appreciated

    Scores of (112,80,82,81,75,85,114)
    Only in 2.84% of teams! and priced at $392 900
    Good trade for Terlich/Vlastuin next week or the week after?

  23. Charlie Sheen

    June 13, 2013 at 11:48 pm

    Is it worth holding Viney and Pittard this week? Considering I already have 19 named, and they will come in handy if they play next week.

    Current team =

    DEF: Goddard, Heppel, Gibbs, Scotland, Goodes, (Terlich, Thurlow, Pittard)
    MID: Ablett, Swan, Watson, Stanton, Fyfe, O’Mera, Vlastuin (S.Selwood, Priddis, Viney)
    RUC: Roughead, Nicholls (Naitanui, Gawn)
    FWD: Martin, Franklin, Macaffer, Dwyer, Staker (Stevie J, Cox, JJK)

    Can’t decide what to do..
    Hrovat will be coming in somehow, I’d like to get Martin also but think it will screw me over for round 13..
    Thinking Scotland>Ellis for my second trade but he might get the vest..

    Any suggestions?

    Mild dilemma this week!

    Do I go:

    Option 1 – Gwilt to Boyd (via Gibbs DPP) and Evans to Minson (Blicavs DPP)

    Option 2 – Gwilt to Boyd and Evans to Barlow

    Both options I have the same number of players on the field this week and next. The latter will mean I have Cox / Nicholls as my best ruck combo though.

    Advice much appreciated.

    • qwert

      June 14, 2013 at 4:30 pm

      option 2
      barlow will score more then minson,nicholls will be gc suns primary ruck so he has a possibility of scoring well so having him as r2 isn’t to bad

    or any other thoughts?

      crouch to boyd

    $534,000 in the bank

    *Players with bye this week

    I have 17 players available to play.

    I was going to trade in Hrovat but hes not playing, so these are my trade thoughts.

    Dixon to Duffield

    For my second trade i either upgrade again and go Evans to Barlow or i downgrade Evans, but i’m not sure who would downgrade to. other option is i trade someone else. if i go Evans to Barlow it would leave me between $150,00 – $200,000 in the bank. Again not sure where to downgrade if i decide to do that to get cash and than trade barlow in nxt week.

    Thoughts on my team and trades?? anyother trade thoughts??
