Just saw the notification that lockout has lifted

Haven’t looked at breakevens yet but going by how shit some of my players scored and how well other players I don’t own did, initial reactionary trades are...

Dunkley > Viney
B.Smith > Howe
Cavarra > Bewley

C.Taylor to bench Bewley on field.

Roberton, Cerra, Cumming and Brayshaw survive another week (months/year).

Unlikely the season goes ahead any time soon but it’s somewhat enjoyable tinkering around with the team again, especially with the 3 trades.

Wondered if it was worth a hypothetical trades thread.
Apart from the odd few, everyone kinda sucked, the 16min quarters sucked, no crowds sucked...So I don't feel as ragey towards as many individuals as I usually would.

Some players (English) were so bad, they couldn't possibly be that bad again.

In theory if we get 3 trades I can do:
Dunkley/Whitfield/Jacobs -> Viney/Wingard/Grundy.

But then I feel sick just looking at that. There's a reason I picked the left hand side and not right.

I still think left options should ourscore the right 99 times out of 100 and yet they got absolutely pantsed in R1.

As Benny boy would say, such is life.

I thought Dunkley's role looked ok in round 1, and that the Bulldogs just had a rubbish game. Whitfield I'm less confident in, since he won't get to junk it up, and with Taranto likely back for R2. Sauce to Grundy is swapping cash generation for points. Do you have another underperformer to upgrade?

FWIW, I'm planning to keep Dunkley and Sauce, and am thinking about trading Whitfield to Wingard or Bewley.

(Also, I reckon that returning best 22 players are going to force a stack of the common rookies out - so R2 trades might end up being about patching holes rather than upgrades.)

Yup Dunks will outscore Viney for sure
Jacobs is fine. What's your current r1/r2?
