Have $10k in the bank.
Have avoided all carnage.
But I do have 3 rookies not playing. Flynn, Highmore, and A.Fyfe. That is one too many, especially with A.Scott and McNeil on my mid bench.

1st option
Is a simple cash grab, and donut removal worthwhile in this instance?
J.Clark > L.Jones
A.Fyfe > Bergman (via Campbell)
Choice to play Waterman/Rowe/Bergman at F6 over J.Clark in MIDS (via Campbell after trades) only structural change.

PROS
+$133k
Get extra player generating cash.
Only 2 non playing rookies (Flynn, Highmore).

CONS
2 trades gone

2nd option
Strengthen F6 and get decent D6
J.Clark > Chapman (via Campbell and Cox)
A.Fyfe > L.Jones
Allows me to play N.Cox at F6, with Waterman/Rowe on the bench. Chapman becomes D6 (L.Jones/Highmore).

PROS
Strong at F6 and D6
+$40k
Get extra player generating cash.
Only 2 non playing rookies (Flynn, Highmore).

CONS
Less cash gained for the 2 trades lost.
Miss out on Bergman.

QUESTIONS
Too early on L.Jones?
Too late on Chapman?
Will Bergman generate $150k?
Has J.Clark stalled, or will I miss more cash by trading him out?

Cheers guys.

You both agree that Clark has stalled.
You both agree that L.Jones is too early.
You both agree that Bergman is poo and won't make $150k
Split on Chapman!

Leaning towards the 2nd option....
Sorry i think Clark has more to give, especially with north this week. One more decent score this week and he’s away.

Finally went with the second, and clearly better of my two options.

Basically works out as ....

May>Grundy (premo to SP)
Meek>Jones (likely maxed out cow to new cash cow)

Both seem considerable upgrades.

The other option was to bring in Ridley and Jones for May and Parks, but that would have left the same potential doughnut problem in the ruck. Also Grundy is unlikely to get any cheaper while Ridley is very expensive and nearing his peak price. He threw in some very low scores at the end of last year and would only need to repeat one or two of those efforts for his price to drop considerably. Add to that, Meek is unlikely to make much more cash, or even play in the near future so trading him to Jones is a legitimate rookie downgrade, while trading the $102k Parks to Jones would just be a rookie correction.
Good trades bruz, Grundy is still a good back up Captain option

FFS been wanting to get Ridley all week and now reading back the last couple pages might have convinced me to choose a cheaper premo like Bowes or Houston...the cash savings might come in handy I guess. Still not sure what to do.

Traded Dow and Campbell to Waterman and Bergman.

Glad I got rid of Dow given he's the sub tonight

Glad I got rid of Campbell given that he didn't get anywhere near his BE today

Second trade this week after Clark got dropped, Clark to L.Jones a week earlier than planned. Risky but I reckon Clark will be the sub so good chance he comes on and doesn't make his BE.

$360K in the bank for the first upgrade next week 😻
