Think I'm going to go mid price madness too.

I want to try something different this year and not have such a cookie cutter team.

So what are we thinking fellas out of Rocky v Sheed?

Who is the pick of the 2 and why? :think:

Anyone brought in Rockwiz on the basis of the JLT blinder alone?
Sort of. But more on the fact he's looking fit and done a preseason this year. No wines or Wingard helps a little. 666 rule should create space around the ball a bit for him also. It's the year of the bull in SC.

Guess from the ROI perspective, a rookie clearly comes out on top and enables rookie + topliner vs two midprice speculators.
But the 2* midpricer thing is based on pricing / output mismatch you're exploiting, so you might get 100 + 90 for 2*375 blokes vs 115 + 60 for a 620k gun + 130k rook.
You make less cash for an upgrade, say 80k vs 140k on paper, but with the price decay of the topliner you go, you'll pay less to bring in your premo upgrade than those locking in a topliner at top dollar rd1.
Heaps of factors, bla bla bla, but makes sense.
The one thing I do wonder is if that means not surging to the line late in the year because you've got blokes you kept and saved trades on but give you that bit less output on the run home vs those going G'n'R?
That certainly ended up being the case for me late, late last year. Not jumping on in form fwds like Dunkley and Hawkins for instance because I was forced to use my remaining trades on LTI's while crabs like Boak and Rocky remained on-field well past their used by date.

This is my favourite thread. I feel so at home. My team as of yesterday had 11 juicy mid pricers.

I wish rookies in supercoach were priced higher to encourage coaches to pick mid pricers in their teams for cash generation. Would open up loads more players for selection, and I'd find it really enjoyable.

Why were Gresham's scores pretty rubbish in the JLT? Not getting time in the midfield? Interrupted pre-season? TOG?

By all reports at the end of last year, he was going to be part of their midfield rotations. Is this no longer the case?
Whisper it quietly around our way, but he was given plenty of looks in the mids in the jlt, but didn't do very well....

In my team over Ridley. Done nothing wrong this preseason, in Carltons best in all 3 trial games
No way!

He does 2 Judd like things a game and goes missing.

Does not like to play through injury either and will play predominately forward.
