You love a 'Dimma' gambit - trading out an overpriced player that is seen as a must have (mods can move this question to that thread if it's better there).
The question is: How far overpriced compared to what a player will score for the remainder of the season is a good point for trading them out? Does a players 'Captainability' effect this?
I'll probably get pilloried for this, but if Neale goes big against the Dons this week he could be nearly $700k by R6 or 7. I'm considering trading him down to a slow starting premo and unlocking nearly 200k of value, which is enough to upgrade a rookie straight from the bench to another premo, perhaps on the forward line.
Two for the price of one, without culling a high-scoring on-field rookie... how much does Neale need to drop in price to make trading him back in after his bye worth the hassle?
What are your plans for Darling and English?
Darling I know as a KPP we usually have to enjoy the ride and he could come out and kick 6 this week.
English just seems to be fair and not making any cash.
I have no idea what to do with them.
My gut feel is that he has proven to be very good for the Saints and has won a spot in the team. Looking at his stats, i would be amazed if they found a way to omit him. If the Saints play Longer and Marshall i have no idea what his scoring would be like (less hit outs but possibly more time forward), but boy he's had a great start to the season.
I read the info in the link, and while bits of it made sense, bits of it went over my head, too.
Not a problem for you though, I'm sure, kak.
Sisyphus is probably my favourite mythological character.
I like Camus' take on it, and his resignation to his fate.
Nothing to complain about, just get to the bottom of the hill, and start pushing the rock ......... again!
Daedalus as in Daedalus of the labyrinth and father of Icarus, as in playing on not flying to close to the sun, the most recent example of which being Clive Waterhouse?
(I suppose it’s not going to be Daedelus Fitzpatrick, who patrolled at halfback for Tooleybuc-Manangatang in the Central Murray for 35 games in 1982-3 and set a record for intercept possessions in a single season which stands to thus day.)
Having gotten this far, I have no idea what I have just written, but am very much looking forward to the analysis. It is great of you to share your thoughts the way you do
