    LOCKED. Nearly certain to improve on last year's score and it could easily be 20ppg with the right role.

    I didn't see Broughton sequal last year, just heard about how much it stunk up the place.

    I am willing to give it a go this year, I have a little more opportunity to get to the cinema and I think it might be worth the visit.

    Cheers.

    Haven't given a thought to not starting with him personally. Any player who you think will score more than they're priced at is an automatic win.

    Regardless of anyone elses thoughts that is a ringing endorsement (and makes me want to change my vote from unlikely to watch). Or maybe even likely!

    Well personally I have never actually had Broughton in my side, it's all good and well to hear everyone else's problems with him but I believe this makes it a lot easier for me to put him in my side, with the odd chance of a nuts season. There was only 1 problem but now its moved up too two.

    Problem 1: Jack Grimes, this bloke is also one that's burnt others but never me. He is $30,500 more than Broughton but also is really hyped up to have a stella season. I love the way he goes about his footy, he may be injury prone but I think he will be less risky than Broughton. The real question is whether the extra dough will be worth it.

    Problem 2: Brent Staker, probably one of the most selected players in SC 2013. Cheap and easily a cash cow, having him makes Broughton a lot more tempting because of the DPP swapping. When I heard about this new 6 week injury I was more worried about Rd 1. I thought deeper and am getting worried about Staker's age and injury woes. If he is wrapped in cotton wool and misses a few games here and there it could really upset his value. On top of this it's thrown another reason against picking up Broughton, Staker may not stay in the side very long, than Broughton repeating his SPUD status. Is it worth the risk?

    Unless I get some strong persuading coming foward, i believe Grimes is for me.

    Well...... I guess Grimes is possibly slightly less of an injury risk, but only slightly! Yes, he cranked out 21 games last year, but against that his career game counts read as: 1, 11, 14, 6, 21. Couple that with reports that his pre-season has already had 2 or 3 niggle/injury setbacks, and it sounds like you are just tossing up between which poison is better to kill your SC season, Broughton, Staker or Grimes.
    (OK, a little bit over the top, but I just wanted to use the analogy! )
    We're goin' to need a bigger boat...

    Every chance Broughton will become number 2 in the midfield pecking order at GC......his ball winning ability when given a crack in the guts is unquestionable. He has a historical ceiling of nearly 100, and is sure to be motivated by his move of clubs. Yeah he is an injury risk but with the extra 6 trades I think Broughton is a risk worth taking.

    Hi Cunning, welcome aboard. Let's hope we don't get any visits from Mr W. A. Spooner!
    Broughton's ceiling is actually considerably higher than 100.
    He has cracked the ton against 11 different teams, with a high score of 159 against Carlton.
    He also has 5 teams he has a career average greater than 100 against, and interestingly, Carlton isn't one of them!
    (Bris, Haw, Port, Syd and GC)

    Cheers Rowsus!

    I meant season average ceiling of 99 in his debut year.....obviously he has been able to smash out some monster scores when on the rare occassions he has been called upon to play midfield. I am risk averse, especially regarding players and durability, but I feel the potential reward here outweighs the inherent risk.....that risk having been dulled by the extra trades available this year. I also like that he will almost never be tagged while GAJ is in the side and as such, given the opportunity, cant see why he wouldnt post a career high average this year.

    Selection criteria aside, do you think he'll usurp Bennell as the number 2 Mid? Bennell is looking pretty good, and I'm not 100% sure, but I think Bennell might have Broughton covered on both speed and tank.

    Fair point re Bennell......the way that kid is coming on he would probably be #2 as it stands today. Still, Broughton SHOULD be afforded more midfield opportunities than he had last year, and should be spurred on by his rejection (if you believe the rumours) by Ross Lyon. Not many defenders can average 93 over a 4 year period.....even fewer who have been starved of roles conducive to high scoring for a good portion of that time. Can't see him not lifting his average to at least that 93.....the risk is that he has a bad run of scores then gets injured....but considering his upside and the trade situation I almost think not taking him is the riskier option TBH.

    If we had 20 midfielders instead of just 10 to fit in our squad I would be squeezing Bennell into my team. Kid looks a beauty!

    I love watching Mr B rack up cheap possies. I think Playing for GC he will see a lot of the ball down back. No Ross Lyon equals a yes for me.

    He has already said that the half-back sweeper role is his to lose, so I don't see him playing as the number 2 mid. I can see him averaging 90-95 in this position, but he will get tagged out of some games. His inclusion is more likely to see Stanley and McKenzie move up the ground imo.

    Funny you mention McKenzie, at an awkward price this year but a bit more natural improvement this season and a possible DPP DEF/MID in 2014 an he is really on my radar.
