      Bloody Roos - I have Bonar, Taylor and Xerri... and no indication if any of them will play off the extended bench.

      With 17 games the thinking seems to be to go for more mid-pricers as there's less time to gain cash. Anyone looking at Isaac Cummings' preseason and considering adding him in alongside Roberton?

      I hate when this happens with rookies btw - clearly everyone's now gonna have Brander, Brown, McInerney, Pickett, Green, Rowell, probably Georgiades... not much variation.
      The only thing would be if you're gonna stretch for BZ or Noble.

      Am I mad to be thinking I'll take a risk with Cavarra? He's named, which is better than the doubt with the Roos players. With 30 trades there can at least be corrections next week.

      Cavarra's last 2 seasons worth state league form and mature body would have him in front of fringe first year players. He did have injuries in 2019 but I think otherwise has had good durability. The 2020 prospectus was a big wrap.

      I am quite surprised that he has made the cut for R1 ahead based on what I saw at the intra-club game a few weeks ago where he was almost invisible.

      Lipinski is out with delayed concussion from Marsh2 and McLean and Richards have been demoted to emergencies. Any of those three players could easily replace him in the 22 , with Lipinski in particular likely to be back pretty soon.

      I’m hating the new format and drop down banners.

      I complained weeks ago.

      Cabarets was all the talk this time last year!

      The popup in the lower right corner to the match centre is highly annoying and I haven't found a way to make it go away yet.

      I got an email newsletter from FoxSport with the proper team lists including emergencies

      Last decsion made was between Noble,T.Brown, $200k vs McAsey, D.Smith $5k. Went with the rookies too mainly have some flexibility with trades going forward but I really don't like leaving so much money in the bank.
