Yeah I'm tempted. I think MS summed it well. He ticks the boxes of primary playmaker, primary kicker and goal kicker, talented ball runner and averaging very well with a high ceiling, dpp and plays rd17 (and passes the eye test )
Also plays for the bulldogs who don't win many games so bound to come unstuck at some stage. If that happens at the end of year, great play. If it happens in a couple of weeks, wasted trade. It's a lot of funds to risk on a bulldogs half. that said, I have the funds. I can do fitzgibbon to Averillo on top of my other trades no problem.
I'm not one to care about POD's either, but.....a lot of the leaders have him, got him cheap and now I get to pay full price (overs?) for the same scores going forward. It might be better for me to pick a different "gun" and hope that flannagan or lewis find their way back into the team especially with the dogs tough immediate draw and historic shittiness.
Feels like one of those calls where you get fucked either way.
Currently fighting this same battle in my head. I've said for months I can't pay what he costs, knowing I had him earlier on for a couple of dollars, but here we are now and I'm seriously considering forking out an insane amount of money for him.
On another note, is anyone at all considering Tevaga? Doesn't seem to be anything concrete on how long Egan will be out for, but is there any interest?
I am interested in Tevaga and Talakai but thinking they can probably both wait a week for more clarity.
