    Good argument!
    There have been a few fantasy guns on decline for various reasons...
    Farah, Surgess, J Graham, Skywalker...
    It's good to have things mixed up a bit.
    And it's good to see the new guns on the rise

    hehe Cameron's Myth

    beginning of the end. I hate to be the one the say it.

    I am starting to doubt my trade in for him though. If Lichaa really is back to 80 minutes, well then I know I have traded him out after advising others not to, but he is a lot bloody cheaper and could end up averaging similar. What a humble pie eating week it would be to trade Lichaa back in and Maloney.

    If you are considering trading CS9 then this is the week to do it. Otherwise you hold and hope.
    So in the end my one trade this week will be an upgrade. CS9> macca. Need a stable Captain.

    Haven't changed my trades since yesterday I'm currently running the gauntlet with Adam Reynolds haha! 

    Smith - ARey
    Carty - Edwards

    $229,000 bank and lets me put Kikau into my scoring reserves!

    Edwards is up for debate though, might chuck MBye there and bank some more $$$

    Mbye is goalkicking, and doing some general play kicking so he has a pretty decent floor, and we all know he can go mahooosive

    Cameron Smith is back to general play kicking this week and back to goal scoring next week. Everyone trading him out will be good for me. I am sticking by my rule, he will average 60 by the end of the year.

    Turbo will be playing. Thank god he is playing Sunday, he will be a late inclusion. TPJ will also be named!!

    This is the logic I used to hear quite a bit with respect to he stock market. It seems like it's the same thing here.

    With stocks the key question to ask was, has anything changed since you bought the stock? If not then your rationale for buying initially should hold and therefore the stock was not a sell. On the other hand if things had changed then the argument was a poor one because selling now could mitigate even greater losses.

    So the question is, have things changed with Smith or not? Non Smith owner here, but I think they have - in fact I think things started changing for Smith last year!

    The difference between fantasy and the stock market is

    The stock market doesn't give you limited trades. You can dump as many falling stocks as you want and pick them up again cheaply without restriction.

    The stock market never ends. You'd behave differently if you had to cash in all your stocks every September and start again with a completely new set of stocks each March

    I cant believe Im considering it.

    I expect so

    I think a common halves situation is Doueihi, Croker, Cartwright + 1 gun.

    Don't want to play Doueihi/Croker/Cartwright so have to bring in someone to start - and Maloney is a cheap option.

    Merrin -> JFH & cartwright -> maloney is firming for me.

    Puts a bit of cash in the bank too.

    Means playing maloney, at least for a little while

    Giving me the shits though because it feels like the two trades aremt really improving my team.

    Also fear griffin is gonna fuck me on merrin/jfh

    I'd go DCE. He's the dominant half & won't have to share points like B. Hunt will with Widdop. Also DCE is the gk, will get more kick metres & plays round 13.

    I'm holding him one more week because I have bigger fish to fry. Hopefully he snags a 50+ though!

    VSDT I have given him the boot for JTurbo

    Eels have had 3 out of 4 games on hot arvos. Have also just been shit in general. Too shit that its hurting his scores. At least, this is what im telling myself.

    The one night game he scored 51 with -14 in negatives

    You're definitely playing with fire & all your creating is a problem that will require another trade to fix. I don't think you should trade him in.
