So with news teams can start training tomorrow on a scale of 1 - 10 how excited are you?

I can tell you that I for one am really missing it. I was sitting out the back on Sunday by the fire with a beer and it really hit me for the first time not having the footy on the radio.

I'm missing it.
Pretty happy that there is now less than 4 weeks to the first game.

Does anybody know how team announcements will work? Are they still just going to announce on a Thursday per usual?

Not sure if the hubs mean teams won’t need to be announced that early.

Yeah no idea sorry mate. I just assumed it would stay the same, but NFI really.

Haven’t heard specifically, assume it remains as normal. One change that has been confirmed is that final teams are announced 60 mins before the bounce now, rather than 90
 

alrighty then

I understand the hesitancy with all going on around him, but is anyone considering Jack Steven if he gets named this week?

A lot of us had him in our team until he wasn't named in Rd. 1 and then pivoted. Thoughts?

I’d rather wait until he’s on the bubble personally, just in case. Also I don’t have any pressing need to lose any of my forwards. He’s risky but his price reflects that.

Too risky for me even at his price.

Will be interesting to follow how he turns out this season.

Also,I know that players who played in Rd. 1 will go up after this rd, but am I correct in saying that we have until after rd. 3 to bring in guys like Bennell, Stephen Hill, Darcy Cameron, Trent Rivers who are playing/could play their first game this week?

Yep.
Price increases after two games rather than the three of previous years.

Ah shit ok, so they will all be on the bubble next week if they are named.

If we want to make the call on a couple of midpricers (viney/howe/etc) this week, then I think we will miss out on some of these guys.

Maybe.
I want to see how they perform before I bring in any of them.
Will Cameron get another game if Cox is available? Will Bennell or Hill be any good and stay injuury-free? How many games will Rivers get?

I'll probably be happy to wait out one price rise if I'm uncertain.
The first price rise shouldn't be unbearable. It's the first two combined two will cost.
E.G.
Rowell if he continues to score 80s will go up: $36,600; $45,200; $32,900; $24,500
Pickett if he continues to score 94s: $63,400; $78,600; $57,700; $42,800
T Brown if he scores 64s: $36,400; $45,100; $33,00; $24,500

I'd have thought so ...

Surely not for players who play their first game this week? Or are all players changing all year based on 2 weeks scores?

All change after they have played two games.
So players who play their first game this week won't have a price change until after rnd.3.
