Initial Team for 2017

(https://i.gyazo.com/5f8bff5b8b088ec642b7a198fb9db235.png)

Stayed clear of Dayne Beams because I think too much risk at that price.  may change mind though based on JLT.  Gone heavy in mids.

12 Keepers (14 if Ryder and Roughy reach previous highs)

Feel free to comment

Interesting selection of Sandilands in DT - opens up cash for a 6th keeper status mid, like it in SC, but not so sure in DT. Love the structure, same as mine bar the Sandi selection

Sitting Team til JLT

(https://i.gyazo.com/517c38de37346cd7038b1db6db8f28e1.png)

A few changes from first team but comfortable with them. Also comfortable with structure,

Went for Montagna in defence as he is said to be reverting back to running through mids.

Swapped Sloane for Beams and Swallow may pay off.

Brought in Stef Martin to second ruck and hoping he can get back to 2015 form.

Plenty of scope for manouuvering with rookies as well. Treating Swallow as a rookie at that price so may be in starting team or not.

Also have 48k left.

Picket to Houston

Hibberd to Newman on cards for next week if he continues to score well.

If he doesn't lose cash I would hold O'Meara. There will probably be a couple of downgrade options next week and you have the flexibility to swing players around to downgrade. Then you can start cashing out.

What to do this week Hold or Trade?  Stewart the only real worry but will have to keep for the slow burn as he has only made minimal cash and options are more than him anyway.
 
So think I will hold for a week and assess next week.

Backfired this week with WHE going large and Selwood tagged out of it.  Hopefully just a blimp.


(https://i.gyazo.com/3334d8df521017fd428758973176893c.png)

Just wondering what trades this week.
 
Options under consideration
a) Parfit to Black/Parsons
b) Parfitt and Butler to Black and Parsons if both named
c) Parfitt to Black/Parsons  and Marchbank to Docherty/Simpson. Do I risk Simpson with only 7.5% ownership or go Doc?
d) Parfitt to Black/Parsons and Butler to Yeo/Dahlhaus  Looking at this one if Nank gets a suspension
Title: Re: Ringos 2017 Diary
Post by: Mat0369 on May 01, 2017, 01:29:47 PM
I'm thinking this has to be the week for a double downgrade or you have to sit tight until Myers is on the bubble. It will set you up to upgrade Hampton next week
Title: Re: Ringos 2017 Diary
Post by: Ringo on May 03, 2017, 08:06:44 PM
With Beams out thinking this trade Parfitt to Black/Parsons whoever is named and Beams to Sloane. If neither named then a rethink.

Thinking is with Beams having quad trouble may be more than 2 weeks. Quad injuries are usually hard to discern return time. Remember Sauce Merrett had one that stretched to 8 weeks,

So Sloane will probably not be cheaper than he is now so time to get on.

Will give me a midfield of Merrett. Mitchell, Rocky, Sloane, Danger, Jelwood. Murphy, GHS with SPP emergency.

22 Trades remaining

Rd 7 Trades:

Both very costly this week especially with Sloane as Captain.

Rd 7 Team:
Adams, Laird, Roberton, Otten, Marchbank. Hampton (Stewart, Newman)
Rockliff, T Mitchell, Z Merrett, Sloane, M Murphy, Jelwood, Danger, SPP (Barrett, GHS, Pickett)
Martin, Sandilands, (Strandica)
Macrae, Franklin, Steele, Butler, Balic, Parsons (Nankervis, Eddy)

Obviously have to wait on teams but also wondering what trades to do:
Hampton to McNiece if named or Berry
2nd trade depends on whether Parsons dropped or not and thinking forr Bye Purposes Butler to Yeo or Otten to Tuohy,
Also may consider double down to look at TJ Lynch, Ebert and dare I say his name Dixon after the Bye.

Tempted to play GHS on Ground over SPP. Do I keep C on Sloane as no doubt will be hurting after his performance or go with Rocky where his last 2 scores at Aurora Stadium have been 156 and 96.
Title: Re: Ringos 2017 Diary
Post by: Mat0369 on May 08, 2017, 02:29:07 PM
The 96 he was tagging Sam Mitchell and copped a suspension from memory. If you're worried about byes I think you have to take McNiece over Berry as well.

Title: Re: Ringos 2017 Diary
Post by: Ringo on May 08, 2017, 03:52:59 PM
McNiece according to injury site was rested So hopefully will make a few $$$$. Berry and remember I am biased is currently in best 22 with his position to lose. Coaches are impressed with him and see leadership potential in him so that is a strong start,

Post by: Ringo on May 10, 2017, 07:59:15 AM
Played on the ball last week, Week previously run with Ebert and prior to that was running on the wing. So basically giving him various tasks each week to improve his skills.

Bye Structure 18/22/22 Prems 10/13/11

Need to wait on Rocky and then need to decide whether to bench or trade him.
 

Otten, GHS,Butler, Parsons, Pickett and maybe Marchbank all getting close or at ceiling.  Need to wait on teams to decide trades and whether to trade or not.


Title: Re: Ringos 2017 Diary
Post by: Ringo on May 18, 2017, 09:05:15 PM
OK have made these trades -

GHS (dropped) to Myers
Butler to Hugh Greenwood (Early but saves a donut) - Leaves me a healthy $370k for upgrades.

Otten named forward so he stays and Pickett sits on bench. Have defence and forward cover but no mid coverage.  If Myers not named will review.

Have Marchbank as e in dffence with Otten and Berry on field.

Rd 9 Trades:

GHS to Myers ok

Not a lot of bad this week only Yeo, Franklin and Macrae as prems not up to scratch.

Rd 10 trades
Marchbank to Harbrow (Could have used Otten but Otten with better bye kept and will review)
Parsons to Wingard.

Leaving Rd 10 Team as and colour coding for byes: Black rd 9 Green Rd 11, Orange Rd 12, Navy Rd 13
Def: Harbrow,  Roberton, Newan, Berry, Stewart (e) Adams, Laird, Otten (e)
Mid: SPP Murphy, Barrett, Rockliff (e) Pickett (e),Danger, Jelwood, Titchell, Zerrett, Sloane, Myers (e)
Ruck: Martin, Sandi, Strnadica (e)
Fwd: Wingard, Eddy (e) Macrae, Franklin, Steele, Yeo, Nankervis, Greenwood (e)

Bye structure sound and manageable but as we know injuries can effect this. If Rocky still out after his bye will trade to Zorko.

As I see it to complete team barring luxury trades need 2 defenders, 1 mid assuming Rocky returns with Rucks and Forawrds ok. With 16 trades left say 6 to finalise leaving 10 for injury and luxury upgrades.

You could go Berry>Schaz a week early. It seems a pretty safe trade for this week at least. I think if Schaz gets dropped next week it's not the end of the world looking at your structure. The other option is Perryman who is on the bubble and grabbing Schaz next week for Stewart. That's unless you have enough bank to upgrade him next week.
