    Well, that's easier for White Lightning because he was going to sell him.

    I think I have to bite the bullet and bring in Tago. I think I was wrong, and it's possible he averages 45+ with his strong base (very involved) and he plays round 13. Gunna cost me an extra 80-100k on starting, but if he averages 45+ he's probably gunna make another 100k anyway.

    Might wait a week on Starling, and get Tago and Thompson this week. Starling next.

    Thoughts? Don't want to compound my error and stubbornly refuse to get Tago, but if my logic is wrong I could use the wake up call. Cheers

    I think getting Tago in is a good trade

    Doing the same. My biggest fantasy flaw is stubbornly refusing to pick up a player who keeps gunning it, just because I passed them over at a cheaper price...

    Might trade Fermor back in. Was stupid to trade him out, even though it was for Yeo. Went from 0 trades to;

    Tualagi and Bully to Fermor and Leo.

    Tago reminds me of everyone rushing for Bradman Best a few years back on the back. After everyone rushed to trade him in on the back of a 65 and 87 he peaked 100k higher and averaged 36. Despite playing in a good team Tago is still a centre that probably projects long term to score similar to a Brian Kelly/Reimis Smith type. Great if you started with him but he doesn't have the talent of a Jack Bird/Joey Manu/Kotoni Staggs to average into the 40s

    But this is a centre...traditionally a lot of score volatility in that position even for the gun centres.

    Every chance Tago has just had two of his ceiling games, with a lot of ball going down his side on both attack and defense? Cleary return may even that out.

    I don't think it's a trade you would look back on and massively regret by any means as he will make money and he will be a solid starter each week but I'm not sure the sample size is there to think he averages mid 40s, Momo averaged about 38 last year, Crichton has been around that the last two years. Just personally feel I have missed the boat and value saving the trade now more than getting him. We shall see how that goes Neutral

    Yes and no, she is almost 2 but I thought we can get so invested in digital that its nice to switch off too and do something physical/constructive so this was my outlet
    Also if Footy (fantasy and IRL) is your only thing and it goes to shit, then your escapism/outlet is gone with it
    So my advice is to try new things, take a night off or make some time outside of online to do something fun

    Anyways hopefully she takes an interest in painting/board games as something we can share other than Sharks/Jets games (Haha she has the sharkies chant sorted at the behest of her mother and grandfather)
    Don't get me wrong I still enjoy this game but it can take over a bit, so this year is a bit more light hearted/relaxed
    I mention this as advice for others too, which is why I shared

    End of the day this is just a game, get involved in the social aspect/meet up too as it can give you an entire different perspective to the next time the online persona comments
    The same with how comments can be misinterpreted via the tone being written down here
    I don't hate anyone here, sometimes I might be simply challenging your thought process or perhaps think outside your box
    Or frustrated a little at you as the potential to be a better fantasy player is there, but you need to take feedback onboard, take a breath and then make a decision. Probably helps you IRL as well

    More mentor than player now, getting too old haha
    Well said Boozecluez.
    By the way the Fantasy theme is strong with this one.
    Were you a D&D geek as a teenager? 
    I have many fond memories of staying up till all hours over the weekend with my three best mates playing D&D and talking shite.

    Mmm. Now you're getting close to talking me out of the trade. I do have Burton and Bird in my centres already, so don't really need another one in my 17...

    Like most, I had Tago all pre-season, mainly because he looked like a quality footballer in his short stints last year. Nothing I've seen so far suggests that view was a mistake.

    Who are you likely to move Crichton too should be remain on the bench MS?

    I’m thinking of going DWalker and build that Cleary bank balance up

    It’s not sideways I don’t think, could be a 10 point gap between them week to week. Tough trade to make though when not making money from it

    Don't forget the DPP...with all the cheap edges teetering on the 'edge' of failure he's not a bad back up to have on the bench...disclaimer is that I brought him in last week to avoid falling victim to my similar hold out tendencies

    Lock your screen and swing it 90 degrees and it won't be sideways (honestly Starling will make some $$ for you and Clark will do what he has been doing)

    I'm going either Mahoney or Crichton to Starling with that trade. If Crichton is benched he goes, if he starts Mahoney goes
