ROUND 16 DISCUSSION

Filed in My Supercoach Team, Supercoach by on July 13, 2013 • views: 1194

The heavy artillery from Collingwood went BANG Friday night.

Dangerfield looks as if he is in a bit of strife with his shoulder. Played the game out  Friday night and did his coaches proud. I love him. There Ive bloody said it.

Plenty of discussion around loopholes and captains buzzing around, lets get the discussion started… whats on your mind this weekend?

    Hi Jock
    Long term reader, first time commenter. Love the work from you and the boys.
    How bad is Dangers shoulder? Do you think he will miss games?
    Thanks

    • jockreynolds says:

      Great to have you mate! Looked like a 2 weeker to me – its a matter of wether he'll push through it. Either way his output will be negatively effected as I see it. They really should have subbed him last night – thought it was wreckless leaving him out there – precious cargo

      • ShinbonerSpirit says:

        AFL website suggests it looks like a 3 week recovery. Fortunately for him (and us) it was a only a sprain. Sanderson considered subbing him out until the club doctor convinced him it wouldn't aggravate the injury further.

      • Don't Argue says:

        Thanks Jock
        I've got Watson as well, so have some tough decisions to make. Tempted to trade Jobe for Mundy and keep Danger on the bench for a few weeks and hope he comes good for finals.

    • Jack says:

      He looked pretty good when he plucked that cracking overhead mark in the last quarter. Adelaide has a 9 day break before it's next game so, pending scans, he could be a chance to play. I'm in the same boat with Watson already in the JR Bungalow awaiting trade week so here's hoping he gets back quickly.

  2. Jamie says:

    I put Dangerfield on bench incase he did what happened last night, now have the choice of leaving Vlastuin on the ground or using the loophole to keep Danger's 70 pts. What would you do guys?

    • ShinbonerSpirit says:

      Wow! How did you see that coming?? I'd keep the 70. Vlastuin has been downright pathetic recently.

      • Jamie K says:

        My only 2 non playing bench players both play Sat arvo so didn't have any other options. Had Pendles as VC (my crystal ball has been good to me so far!). Thanks for the opinion!

  3. Jamie says:

    Just putting it out there, Pendlebury is as much of a lock each year as Gablett is.

  4. Fabian says:

    VC on Swan… opponent has it on Pendles. Argh! Gonna have to stick the C on Gaz and hope he puts out a massive one!.

    I think Jobe and Danger's injuries showed us the importance of holding on to trades.

  5. Jamie says:

    Staker is a pretty good bench warmer to have. If he keeps scoring the way he does you would nearly be happy to keep him. I would hold off Franklin, he has been disappointing, and I don't think he will be playing.

  6. Kewgie says:

    Does Ablett play well after a break? Or take Swan's VC score of 126?

  7. Josh Thomas made the sub after being named. Trade to Sam Mitchell.

    Danger does his shoulder and limps through the game, while my league opponent has Swan AND Pendles! O'Meara left on my bench.

    Likely Buddy won't play. Think this week will be a bad one…

  8. Jake says:

    Hey community! Should i go buddy to stevie j?

    • Jamie K says:

      I did Jake, although, I had 10 trades left before this round, Hanley in for Watson (Vlastuin into midfield bench), & Franklin out for Stevie J. Hoping he can punch out a 150 odd against the Dees!

      • Jake says:

        yeah, i'm leaning toward it especially with buddy scoring poorly against some of the teams he will play in sc finals!

  9. Sam says:

    Scored alright with Shaw, Swan, Pendlebury and Dangerfield.

    I hope Rowe can get a good score because franklin is out.

    Should I keep Jacobs score of 83 or go with Nicholls????

  10. cotchandmurph says:

    i moved the vc off pendels and put it on swan, now i need gazza to score big

  11. glen says:

    ok how does this loophole thing work? got ablett c pendles vc

    • Bruds says:

      put the captain on a player not playing and have a player that is playing as emergency to get their score and pendles will become captain.

      • glen says:

        ok think i've got it thanks bruds

        • Bruds says:

          good stuff glen! an example would be to put C on thurlow in the backline and have a defender like heppell as emergency and then heppell's score will count but not become captain and pendles will give you 306!!

    • cotchandmurph says:

      ok glen, if you have a non playing player like viney or currie, put them on the field and make them captian, then, say if you use viney, put tom mitchell on the bench as emerg and wait for the magic to happen

      • glen says:

        put naismith (syd) on gawn (melb) off c is on naismith is that ok?

        • Bruds says:

          beautiful, have gawn as emergency if you were planning on playing him to get his score and you're set!

          • glen says:

            thanks for your help…pity i didn't find this page at the start of the season…might be sitting higher than 4th good luck e1 that helped for the rest of the season

  12. Bruds says:

    Hey community! I had shaw as emergency last night and am using his score but am wondering if i should swap goodes for heppell, mckenzie or hartlett, any thoughts?

    • jockreynolds says:

      I reckon Heppell. Reckon he'll lift in Jobe's absence, plenty of midfield time, and aside from that the best pick of those three

      • Bruds says:

        cheers jock!, i have heppell, goddard, shaw, hartlett, mckenzie and gibbs on at the moment, hopefully goodes who is sitting on the pine doesn't pull out another 111 like last week!

  13. glen says:

    ok how does this loophole thing work? got ablett c pendles vc

    • jockreynolds says:

      Gday there mate. Whack a player on the field who is definitely not playing, and whack the C on him. You'll then get your VC's score. Just make sure you have an emergency covering your dummy captain ;)

  14. Jeff says:

    I've got Watson and Dangerfield, haven't made any trades yet this round (5 left). Was thinking of going Watson to Selwood/ Jack this week, but do you think I should hold off trading until next week to assess the situation with Dangerfield?

    • Bruds says:

      hey jeff, i picked up selwood this week for watson, selwood has scored well against the sides he has in finals and should have a monster game against the demonds! Jack's finals run is probably harder and he hasn't has as bigger scores against some of the teams he plays again as well as being more expensive. But with limited trades you have to assess if you can afford to wait the extra week?

      • Jeff says:

        Thanks for the advice, think I'll pull the trigger on Selwood. My team is set so these last 5 trades were for injuries, might as well use them if I need to!

        • Bruds says:

          to ease your conscience even if selwood doesn't go nuts today, he has scored 140, 163, 135 against north, sydney and brisbane who he plays again this year, 2 of which in finals!

  15. LukeKilner says:

    Why are people still asking how the Bloody Loophole works??? What round are we in?? Ridiculous…

    • jockreynolds says:

      Gday there Luke – mate – one of the good things about this joint is people can ask a question without worrying about having the mickey taken out of them. Let's get behind everyone in here young, small, tall, beginner, expert – all part of the fun old mate ;)

      • BestCoastEagles says:

        Well said Captain, wise words indeed i definitely won't use the loophole while you are our Captain. A Million cheers mate. Hope JR BRUMBY FC done ok this week champ.

  16. Garry says:

    community shall i put the C on ablett, johnson or selwood

  17. Josh says:

    Hi Community,Who is likely to be out for longer between Dangerfield and Watson, I'm tempted to trade out Dangerfield because of his price and keep Watson on the bench with T.Mitchell to cover up untill he is ready to play.

    • ShinbonerSpirit says:

      I'd probably say Watson. That was a clean break whereas Dangerfield managed to finish the game.

    • jockreynolds says:

      I'd say Watson might be out longer, but Danger's shoulder could be a drama for the rest of the season wether he's playing or not

      • Super_Freak says:

        I hope Danger recovers, I traded him in this week. I'm confident he will perform when he returns. The guy is a machine, played most of the game with one arm and still got 70sc point

  18. CloneMan says:

    Should I take Witts score of 83 or go with Nicholls?

  19. Luke says:

    Jock / community shall i bring in stevie j or mitchell from hawks matey

  20. Adam says:

    Should i sub off o’meara for crouch who scored 93? I have a feeling o’meara will do well against the tigers but not sure!

    • Bruds says:

      that has got to be the tightest call i have ever seen! even if you get it wrong, the difference will only be a matter of a few points :) o'meara has beaten 93 6/14 games this year so maybe just go with the 93

    • Sam says:

      Take the 93

  21. Sam says:

    Take Swans 126 or continue with either Stevie J or Ablett?

    • @HJ_Mitch says:

      I'm in the same boat. I reckon a bird in the hand is better than two in the bush. I'm going to stick with Swan's score, especially when it looks like it going to be wet for most of the afternoon in Geelong.

  22. jake says:

    take pendleburys 153 or give the C to StevieJ/Ablett? pls help

  23. Joe says:

    community shall i go stevie j geelong or barlow from freo im doing my head in lol

  24. Jono says:

    Ive been lucky this year with not picking both Watson and Danger so i have no worries about injuries with that!!
    Im tossing up between puting the captain on Gablett and thinking he's gonna pull a massive score out or keep pendles score with the loophole!! any thoughts?
    ALSO WHEN IS JOE DANIHER AND CURRIE GONNA GET THERE CHANCE???

    • ShinbonerSpirit says:

      Keep Pendles' score. Daniher should be in and out of the lineup across the remainder of the season. Currie doesn't look like displacing Goldstein/Daw any time soon.

    • Super_Freak says:

      Bit late for reply so this is for future reference, but I would never pass on a 150+ score.

  25. ShinbonerSpirit says:

    SJ's disposal efficiency not looking good at all…

  26. ACDC says:

    I wonder what the ratio is of players playing in long sleeve shirts, to how badly they score that game. (Hartlett I'm looking at you)

    • Super_Freak says:

      I dont think it matters what guernsey hartlett wears, he just continues to disappoint

  27. David says:

    Gaz vs Richmond or Kennedy vs GWS?

  28. Craig says:

    Guys, what's the score I should settle for with Stevie. J and not change to Ablett?

    • ShinbonerSpirit says:

      His SC score might not look too good with his disposal efficiency, but I'd bank a 130.

  29. Cujo says:

    Sounds like I should lock in Gazza and keep Stevie in the VC jumper.
    Thoughts?

  30. ShinbonerSpirit says:

    Who will score fewer points: Nic Nat or Cox?

  31. Jose' says:

    Quick question guys
    Nicholls just got a 112 . Do i take his score over Minson or Cox??

    • cotchandmurph says:

      take nicholls score, i missed out but if you have a chance do it

    • dan says:

      take the 112

    • Super_Freak says:

      I would definately take his 121. Toss up who to replace though.

    • ShinbonerSpirit says:

      Minson plays an Essendon side lacking in a top class bona fide in-form Ruckman (I don't think Bellchambers up forward counts). Cox is playing Sandilands. I'd probably go with Minson on the field, but it's hard to split the two. And I can't help but feel that Cox will go bang in the derby.

  32. JB says:

    Why do some teams have 2 Emergency for the same position? Which score counts?

  33. Guest says:

    Who will score more points: Minson or Cox? Used emergency loophole on nicholls

  34. Guest says:

    Do we know what' the diagnosis is for swallow? Hand injury? Will he miss weeks?

  35. Dan says:

    Lads what do you think of the punt of Tom Mitchell on field as opposed to Matt Priddis?
    Tom Mitchell playing the giants should kick a bag where as Matt Priddis may get crowley'd without the likes of Shuey or Kerr to cop the tag.

    • Super_Freak says:

      You could be on to something there. Most of Priddis' scores are consistently 95-110, and with a tag that could drop sigificantly. Mitchell is almost a certainty to crack 100 against the giants.

    • Michael says:

      Great observation Dan, have just locked that in!

  36. Michael says:

    Had SJ as VC but missed my chance to get the C off GAJ – end result 46 points down the drain!

  37. Super_Freak says:

    I'm devastated community. Finally brought in Danger this week and he gets injured. Crouch will be emergency so not a total catastrophe, as he is cranking out reasonable scores atm.

    Anyone else feeling my pain?

    • ShinbonerSpirit says:

      Happened to me with Birchall (40 points plus injury) and Watson (24 points plus injury) in the last three weeks.

  38. ShinbonerSpirit says:

    Finally, a decision of mine that did not go catastrophically wrong. Picking Jelwood over Mitchell and Montagna looks the goods so far. Sitting on 1778 from 15 with Captain SJ.

    • Super_Freak says:

      Looks like you needed a bit of luck after Birchall & Watson. I'm 1421 from 13, captain on Griffen. Projected around 2500. Should definately be my best round. Good to finally see most of our premiums performing.

    • BestCoastEagles says:

      Had the same problem with Watson, got J. Selwood in as well worked out nice. Got Dangerman dramas now but will hold that little gem. Managed 2448 with my Wet Toast Contingent letting me down BIG TIME. Will take that everyday of the week.

  39. duck18 says:

    I 'm a North supporter and they absolutely do my head in

    • ShinbonerSpirit says:

      Hear, hear! You'd think after Richmond last week…

      • duck18 says:

        how can you smash Richmond last week,be up by 32 points this week and lose? It's happened 5 or 6 times this year we get 30 or 40 pts in front then BANG! we blow up………bloody chokers mate I'm over it

  40. Sam says:

    1960/16 looking to have a monstrous week! Chose Nichols over Jacobs :) tom lee gave me good bench cover for buddy, clisby did the job for duffield..

    Should I go Mitchell or pridis though, pridis may get crowleyd

    • Sam says:

      Also, can I trade Jacobs to a rookie ruckman, running with cox and Nichols for the rest of the year? Ten upgrading else where.. Jacobs has scored lower then nicols nearly every week

    • duck18 says:

      wow with a score like that you may take out the Nissan prize. I would go Mitchell theres a chance Priddis will get Crowley and as you know he is the tagger from hell

  41. Michael says:

    What's par score for this week folks?
    Currently 1552/13, GAJ as capt (stuffed up – had SJ as VC but didn't get C off GAJ in time), proj score 2446, T Mitchell, JPK, Heppell, Ibbotson, NicNat, Cox, JJK, Goddard, B Goodes to come. 100 average from now will get me to 2452. Crucial game is the derby – could either be massive or disastrous I reckon!

  42. JD_Cereal says:

    Myself and my opponent both have Gaz as captain, although I'm using the loophople and he isn't. I'm only forecast to win by 20 points, should I leave the VC on him or take a punt on Griffen?

  43. gish says:

    Was planning on trading Watson for Jack today but now thinking I should have gone with Selwood. Should I still make the trade or hold out until next week and grab Joel? Can cover Watson with Mitchell today.

  44. @Jacko2128 says:

    will tom mitchel get more than 93? tossing up between playin him or taking crouch's score??

  45. Darby's Dashers says:

    Used the Ruck loophole with Nichols and VCR with pendles. Goldstein had a stinker

  46. Osh says:

    Worst thing I did this week was forgetting to put Tom. Mitchell on for Jaeger.

  47. Michael says:

    Tommy Mitchell you little ripper! Put him on instead of Priddis thanks to a fellow community member's advice – can't see Priddis getting 113+ against Crowley today! Projected score now 2461, currently 1772/15.

  48. Michael says:

    Finished on 2413 – highest SC score ever!
    Projected score was 2384 – so first time in ages I'm in front!
    Winners (scored more than projected): Rocky (BOG: +67), Staker (+33), Hanley (+28), Pendles (+24), Roughead (+22), Goodes (+21), Heppell (+13),Titch (+13), Ibbotson (+12), SJ (+10), JPK (+2).
    Losers: Gibbs (WOG: -35 on projected), Cox (-31), JJK (-28), Jimmy B (-26), NicNat (-24), GAJ (-18), Walker (-18), BJ (-11), Cloke (-11), Ellis (-10), Swan (-4).

    • cotchandmurph says:

      well done mate. great to see. You wont belive me but i scored 2414

      • Michael says:

        nice work mate, shoulda coulda woulda I know, but forgot to take C off GAJ with VC on SJ – so lost 46 points there! Also had Nicholls' 121 on the pine – swap that with Cox and there's another 51 points – so all going spectacularly well could've got 2510!

  49. cotchandmurph says:

    This was the first week i think where i had a player in every game

  50. Matteo says:

    2407 jock.

  51. SCaddict says:

    Had an excellent round in both codes with 2544 in SC and 2323 in DT to win all 6 league matches.

    Will have my fingers crossed that Stevie J escapes MRP attention on Monday but otherwise managed to escape the carnage this weekend!

    • ShinbonerSpirit says:

      Nice score! No Dangerfield?

      • SCaddict says:

        Yes SS managed to dodge that one thankfully. Had Watson last weekend though so feel sorry for those who have both.

    • BestCoastEagles says:

      Have Dangerman & Stevie J, i will light a candle for Stevie and pray to the Footy God's and hope he does the Harry Houdini

  52. ShinbonerSpirit says:

    Limped to a 2479, with the pathetic performance of Cox.

    • BestCoastEagles says:

      I am a West Coast supporter so i got double whacked with JJK, Cox, Nic Nat and Priddis a well as losing to Freo .

      • ShinbonerSpirit says:

        Tough luck mate. I had Priddis too, but subbed Nic Nat out for Nicholls.

        • BestCoastEagles says:

          Cheers Shinboner, i suppose you wouldn't be feeling the best either after the Kangas last quarter. Oh well i will have a nice ale to sooth my emotions

    • cotchandmurph says:

      yes, it was disapointing

  53. BestCoastEagles says:

    Well done to the Community that cranked out the big scores this week 2400+. To the rest there is always next week. Exiting times leading to the Finals. Just need to control my Trade Finger for a week or two and she will be apples

  54. Dimmawit says:

    2467 for me. Carrying Terlich. Sitting 3rd overall. Hopefully hold top 5.

  55. Champ says:

    2546.. Benched Cox & Priddis(156) & Played Mitchell & Nicholls(234) = 78 pts.. Woohoo… Dropped to 303 after 2 ordinary weeks, could go back up a little now??

  56. Kewgie says:

    Won in my main league by 3 points!

    Marc Murphy has crushed me, down almost 50k this week. Had since the start and seems like I will have to deal with him till the end.

  57. Turner says:

    Ok get rid of terlich or no?
    It’ was already driving me mad, wanted to swap to Hanley preRD16
    Now looking for immediate bang into action for r17,
    Can I trust terlich for a bit more yet…

    I have shaw,Goddard,Gibbs,hartlet,goodes terlich
    and clisby/oxley(staker fwdbench to cover buddy)
    – Hanley is cheapest for value but thinking hibbard now 444k or eski with massive roof and good for 90
    – Thompson is big p0d in league

    Any help appreciated cheers SCT community
    Need a big 3 week push for the 8!!

  58. Ozzie says:

    in some serious trouble in the backline!

    sitting birchall on the bench still have vlaustin and terlich on field, team complete everywhere else with 4 trades left!
    do i..
    trade out terlich high b/e this week and gonna leak some cash?
    trade out birchall for premo and put vlaustin on bench? keep in mind the 4 trades left.
    out of contention for overall prize but first in semi serious league and 4th in serious league, thinking of holding on to the trades for finals? what you think!?!

    • Skintip says:

      Vlastuin is done for the season I reckon and terlich is slowing but they are both parts of their teams and will still play. Birchall is a waste and perfect to upgrade to finish your defense, and it will leave solid bench cover also.

      Ive got three trades left which are for sideway injury trades over the next 7 weeks.
