    Thought there was an expectation that Cripps wouldn't be subbed this year, or am I wrong in assuming that. I was hoping for more bang for my buck. :(

    Me too, he was slightly better for 3/4 than he was for 1/4 last year. Did you expect a money back guarantee. If he doesnt work out take the cash after three weeks and get Soemeone else.

    A few questions on Geary's game on the weekend.

    77pts, with 23 touches. What sort of role did he play? What is his job security looking like, and do you think he can keep up that level of form/DT scoring?

    Thanks.

    I've got Geary. Off a poor / injury riddled year last year he's pretty fit.
    Run and carry out of the back line.
    Could be job security issues when Gram recovers from his hamstring or if Cripps improves.

    Stanley or Milera who will score better and who has better job security?

    What do you guys think about Nick Riewoldt, always takes a lot of marks per game and if he can start kicking goals he could get back to his best.

    Milera has had a really great start, would like to hear from saints supporters about his job security once schneider comes back in, has he done enough to cement himself in the 22, (or the 21+1 as it were)

    If Milera keeps going like this, or better, I fully expect he'll keep his spot, as his kicking and speed are so good, as well as his ability to get out of traffic easily. We've been looking for someone like him for years (the reason we drafted Andrew Lovett- thanks for that!).

    As for Stanley, he looks to be improving by the week and if that continues I expect he'll be in the team for most of the year. His ruckwork is also very good when he's able to get a run up, as he has a leap like Nic Nat and Paddy Ryder, which gives him a big advantage.

    Thats an interesting thought. I didn't really think about. I was pretty set on milera if he had good job security as he is going to rise the most (at current rate) of the forwards i don't have. But the gap between them in this regard is in fact quite minimal. I might have to go with milera in the end due to cap restraints im running it pretty tight but its something to think about.

    Thoughts on Geary please, pretty good preseason, seems to be getting plenty of it. Can he keep it up? I jumped on Gilbert in his breakout year in round 3 and I'm hoping for a repeat.

    Was also wondering about Geary, guys. Moreso for Super Coach.

    I think he'll stay in the team, I am more concerned what happens once Gram and Clarke :D come back into the team. I dont like making trades this early but if he is going to score 75+ and at 200k looks pretty decent.

    bit of a silly question, really, are you asking if one of game's best CHF of the the last ten years is a good investment after he had a shocker of a season last year, and seems to be getting back into form?

    although seriously, he has had knee issues for the past couple of seasons, and could be a bit of a gamble, but I'm happy to have him in my team. he scored over 100 in round 1 when i personally thought he played average, and dominated last week, although that was against gold coast, so i don't know how much you can read into that

    You probably aren't gonna get a lot of unbiased opinions here mate, but I started with him and see him as a definite premium

    I was silly enough to have him on the field this week with Cripps, how that hurt.

    I am going to persist with him because I think he can play 10-15 games this season averaging about 50-75 points

    But I think I will trade Cripps, only because he is more expensive and less of a cash cow

    I like your points and am seriously considering Stanley. Do you think he'll rack up enough possessions for DT? He's convincing me more so for SC at this stage.

    Damn if only you could do 3 trades a round. Bring in both of them!
