Do you think C.Smith has better job security/vest avoidance than, say, Port's Wingard?

Will Dickson Get the Green vest alot this year?
Wingard is a better kick, he's playing in a struggling team and will probably get more game time, but he's also more expensive than Smith. Your call
Too early to tell. Promising scores in the NAB cup, but whether he'll keep his spot is anyone's guess. Oh and BTW....
Captain Pendlebury FTW!!!
I wouldn't think so, maybe a chance at being subbed off rather than starting with it.
Ckay Smith seemed to get limited game time during the NAB? was this just rotation or will he continue to get subbed alot? he was killing it until 3qt?
Lake is on most SuperCoach's trade button.
I want to keep the faith with Lake.... should i? lol
Unless your others are worse might as well sit him on the bench and wait another round.
I didnt see him play dont know if he just had a bad day or is having a bad decade. Also have Dickson will trade both out in the coming weeks if a miracle doesn't happen.
Lake did OK this week and I resisted the urge to trade him. I think he will only improve, especially when Marko takes the backline role and gives Lake the opportunity to run out with the ball.
Big leap from last week for Lake and Markovic. Markovic finished yesterday with 78 while Lake finished with 95.
Ryan Hargrave, He landed awkwardly on his leg late in the last quarter.
Is he going to be fine for next week?
Club said on Twitter last night that he was fine.
Where is Howard's injury at time wise out of the club ?
Thanks in advance.
Where does Dickson sit in the Doggies' structure going forward?
3 or 4 weeks.
Being very unsettled atm, I don't think there is much certainty around our forward structure. I can't see him moving into the midfield a whole lot this year, so if he plays, he will play predominantly as a forward.
Definitely hasn't cemented a spot in the 22 yet, but 2 early games is a good sign I guess.
Will he continue to be at high risk of the sub vest?
As an outsider I see the Doggies as having a weakness in the forward line, and it's got me buggered why players like Grant and Dickson are starting as your subs. Either you need them there or you don't!
It's been questioned by us as well. You'd think a midfielder would be a better sub.
I'd say yes, he'd be in danger of being sub quite a bit. Forward line is easily our biggest weakness, so that would lead to him getting a fair bit of opportunity. If he doesn't perform for a full game though, the sub vest could very likely come. Doesn't have a huge tank atm, so I would worry about his ability to play a full game out at a high level.
Some help would be much appreciated. Wanted C.Smith before the season started, opted out due to a few opinions from this board (ie, his disposal eff, etc..). I have Cameron who i am going to trade out and am wanting C.Smith in (can do this via dpp trade).
Is Clay still a good option to trade in? Does he have decent job security? Would T.Greene from GWS be a better option? Any opinions on who is more likely to get more games would be appreciated heaps. Also i have T.Dickson and am very surprised he he was dropped this week. Only came on in the last qtr last week and scored 39? Hasn't had much of a chance. Thanks.
Will Dickson struggle to get back into the team?
He'll have tough competition for his spot - unfortunate for your team and mine - and may not get a regular game. Keep him for now and use this week's trades to replace underperforming guns with promising rookies. Also about Clay Smith, his r1 score was boosted by 4 goals, which was a one off. He could be dropped in the next few weeks.
If you can get Greene in I would, Smith could be sub quite often as well as be in and out of the team. If you can get Greene in before this weekend you will also get more of a price rise with that player.
Thank u very much. I can get both in & my heart wants both but worried what you just said about his job security.
You would think that the Bullies would be willing to try anything ATM.
Can anyone see him as a potential fix in the forward line soon? \
If we keep going like we are, I'd imagine he will get another shot soon. Was playing pretty well for Willi on the weekend, before he was pulled out and went to Etihad.
