Sitting at 701/8

I am okay, I am okay, I am okay! Slowly rocking back and forth...

Grundy, very disappointing with the VC, Another score like that and I won't hesitate to trade him (I know he is a premo but not ruining my season running someone at top dollar who isn't performing when I can trade him away and if he comes good, then re-assess then.)

Balta stunk it up but on the pine so not as worried, the rest of the rookies have been good to okay and fielded the right ones so far.

Now the questions
1. Who to captain? Gawn, Oliver or Fyfe. Leaning towards Fyfe but really not confident.

2. Who to field out of Scott & Butters?

3. To take Sloane or Matt Crouch? Had Crouch nearly all pre-season but Sloane is at a tasty price for potential output and currently sitting in my side.

Any pearls of wisdom oh wise ones of our great (future plentiful puppy posted) land?
Butters, Jack Steele or Brayshaw, agree and same boat with Grundy ,although dont know if it's good moneyball to trade him back in.

Brayshaw is good and I feel a pretty safe option at his price. but feel Steele is primed for a big season and the Saints will lean on him heavily to produce, I would lean towards Brayshaw and watch Steele...

I hear what you are saying but too many seasons I have gone down the path of backing in premos for them to spit in my face and struggle for large chunks... I know Grundy is more likely to come good than not but if Goldstein for example (or any other ruck) starts out on fire, it makes perfect sense to me to maximise your money value at the expense of 1 or 2 trades... we all know he will be in the top group come years end bar injury.

Yes trades are an extremely valuable asset, however cash generation, protection and maximization is key to all future success with trades... just something to consider.

I really like Fyfe against North (has an insane record against them) but he also now has Darcy & Lobb rather than Lurch tapping down his throat and Goldstein looks in good touch... just feel it is one of those rounds where nothing is quite what it seems. Gawn vs Lycett seems a good choice but I thought the exact same with Grundy vs Stanley. Oliver is the only other capable choice IMO.

So to answer no idea!!! Just want a solid score around what Cripps got (not overly greedy)...
I think Gawn said Lycett was his toughest opponent last year. I’ve decided to take the Cripps VC.

Yes, there's nothing wrong with an early correction trade ,I'm considering Newman as well.I'm putting the C on Fyfe.

Yep feeling Fyfe again now after doing some research on how he starts seasons and Gawn saying Lycett was his toughest opponent last season... watch this blow up in my face 🔥🔥🔥
