  1. TOPHAWK1 says:

    HURLEY! You little RIPPA! Grabbed him in a moment of impulse and undisciplined madness. Bloody glad I did!!

  2. Combotron says:

    Treloar 4 zorko? Have 8 trades left. Lost patience with hanners and treloar. Hanners to selwood next week.

    • TheGreatBozza says:

      Bit sideways peronsally, where are you ranked? If near the top then go for it to

      • Combotron says:

        Just playing cash league this year but frustrated by treloar and he will only drop more cash this week. My opponent has zorko and not treloar as well.

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      Don't fall for Zorko. He may not provide as much as you'd hope

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      I am giving both Hanners and Treloar one more game to show something. If both go big great, if one goes big and one spuds, then its goodbye spud and hello Jelwood next week. Straight switch. If both spud be very angry, (I will be) pick the worst of the two spuds and replace with Jellwood next week. Use the other spud as a loophole slave in the meantime until the spud improves or hatch a plan to dump him later. Hope it helps!

    • Cogla13 says:

      Richmond said they will put some time into Zorko so expect a tag or run with role.


    Keep Jack Stevens 96 or roll the dice on Hannebery?

    • TheGreatBozza says:

      That's a tough one. I'd say if your playing leagues, suss out your opponent and who he has. If playing for rank then roll the dice, not going to move up with 90's

      • Combotron says:

        Gotta back hannebury in…but jeez he has been rubbish this year

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      96 is still a very valid score. I'd take it

  4. TheGreatBozza says:

    I've narrowed down my FWD upgrade to three:

    Buddy, Yeo or Paddy?

  5. Tyruddanaut says:

    Wellllllllllllllll…………………… I had a choice. A choice of giant proportions that would decide which road I took. Both the roads seemed fair, but the advertisement of one chose where I would lead. Left was Jelwood and right was Hurley. I hope I chose the right path but after last nights game I'm not so sure

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Well, that just proves my position down to a tee without me even realising it. I am no leftie do gooder, which now explains why I went Hurley last night! The pick to the right. Don't stress though mate, Jelwood will not disappoint. If Treloar or Hanners (My two premo liabilities) screw up this round, Jelwood will be the replacement. One straight switch.No questions asked. Cheers

  6. Pieman says:

    Take Josh Battles score or roll the dice on Greenwood?

    • davo says:

      Take the 8

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Stellar effort that by Battle. A goal and 8 SC. I'd take that. Greenwood is just rubbish………………………………………………………………..

      Now you know I am just being snide right? Hehehehe…………..

  7. Pieman says:

    I want to remind the community that I am the only recognised supercoach writer that identified Ben Long as rookie star. No other writer on any website identified him as a genuine star except me. If you want original highly valuable information on supercoach look me up.

  8. Choice says:

    Must win needed, trade in Ryder or Yeo for Hannan.
    Play Greenwood over Nank or Franklin (Plays sh*t against GWS)?
    Hannebery for Jelwood, Newman for Laird (not sure how he'll go against tough opposition)

  9. Ben says:

    Who wins fellas
    Jelwood, trealor, rance, lynch.
    Kelly, Neale, Newman, greenwood.

  10. undypuncher says:

    Who should i start ryan from frwo or johanison

    • TheGreatBozza says:


    • Derek says:

      JJ. Biggs and Bob back for dogs will be a different defence structure. JJ should get some room to move

      • Tibor says:

        I just went the mad gamble of bringing JJ in to free up cash to go from SPP to Jellwood. JJ fall has been huge surely now with contract sorted he can get back to decent footy

  11. TheBenchmark25 says:

    How many trades has everyone got left?
    I've got 5 left and will save them for as long as I don't have injuries. So lately I haven't done any research and there's not much I can do but watch on
    8 trades from here would have been perfect

  12. TheGreatBozza says:

    Nank, Lynch, Greenwood

    Who should I drop to F7?

  13. hedski says:

    Go the digs…

  14. Derek says:

    What time are the games on tonight? Crazy time zones!

  15. Stirlsy says:

    What's Melbournes weather like?

    • Jim_bob321 says:

      Sunny, little bit cloudy, not too windy, cold
      Perfect weather

  16. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    After billings Stirling effort last night I have to field either witherden or Ryan.
    Good thing I had the E on billings just had a feeling.
    so thinking witherden. .
    whaddya reckon?
    Other option is shaz but reckon witherden will score more.
    can't loop as only loop is cousins who plays early.
    Was gonna loop with billings but saint spuds last night.

  17. Derek says:

    Darcy or Greenwood?

    I have Darcy at R2 and Greenwood F7. Was going to loop Greenwood with Nank who plays Sunday. But not sure how Darcy will go this week, should do ok against WCE, just worried he is getting tired.

    Only have damm Cameron as my R3 so have to decide now. Can swing Ryder to R2.

    I can't see much difference between Darcy and Greenwood, so I'd prefer to have the loophole option

    • INPieman says:

      With Lycett out I think Darcy will get a lot of tap outs

      • Derek says:

        R2 is my last upgrade. Darcy and Parsons to Gawn and rookie. Still need a bit of cash out of both of them.

        And no FA with 60seconds to go please. Darcy lost 12 pts last week, it would have been more if Goldy kicked the winning goal.

    • Stirlsy says:

      Rain in Perth today but forecast is better tomoz Derek no rain forecast Sunday mainly cloudy 17

  18. hedski says:

    Mackie and Scoota out for cats (damn), Z.Guthrie and Simpson in.
    Pain in the arse for those who've held Scoota.

  19. INPieman says:

    Scooter is a late out

    • TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

      Must all have footy alerts eh?
      Saved me in more than one occasion

  20. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    Scooter a late out 4 cats.

  21. Borko says:

    adams v simpson for final DEF upgrade … simpson 35k more but scored 85 in 2nd half last week without cripps!

  22. Derek says:

    I'm guessing that Dangerfield could be the most VC'd player ever today.

    Is there anyone who won't VC danger?

    • ahmad rubas says:

      he did score under 100 last time against hawthorn

      • Stirlsy says:

        Was flying till Roughy got him in ribs… everyone going Doc with the C has a very poor avg v the Doggies BEWARE.

        • Defying_Madness says:

          Noticed that also, Kreuzer will be my captain over Doch if Danger fails.

      • Derek says:

        The Hawks will be up for this game, they always are against the cats, but same can be said for the cats.

    • Tophawk1 says:

      My 8 year old son Jack. He VC'd zerrett. Greedy little bugger reckons 120 is crap. He has the C on Damger. LOL VC on Danger and going into the Doc as C for me.

    • Don't Blush Baby says:

      Agree,and I'm one of them , but now scooter is out some coaches playing for league spots for the top 4 and are behind may opt for Mitch

      • Derek says:

        Good point. Cats would have sent Scotter to TMitch for certain. Blicavs will get the job now.

    • Keenbutclueless says:

      Are you going Danger as VC Derek, or going a Higgo contrarian move with Pendles?

    • Russty_ says:

      I was gonna go Danger into Doch Derek, but just before the game whacked the C on worries about any loopholey crap happening now 🙂

    • hedski says:

      Might take Dangers 141

  23. Bells says:

    So glad I brought in Scooter – he's been dynamite for me.
    Is that 4 weeks out, three onfield now all up now?
    Ironically by not playing (and probably dropping ten grand if he did) I might be able to offload him for his brother.
    Probably have to swing Greenwood into the mids now in-case Ablett misses again (another great selection).

    • Stirlsy says:

      Scooter was always a risk with his injury history, it screamed stay away but heaps got sucked into him.

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      I'm sort of praying Jelwood goes large so many people can't get him and I'll get an advantage because I got him at his cheapest

  24. BrownlowBoy says:

    I did mention Hurley last week! Glad he didn't let me down.

  25. Jim says:

    I need help quick! Parsons to Gawn to allow me to loophole Greenwood with Lynch/Nank, or just wait another week?! Was planning on waiting a week but now I'm torn.

    • ahmad rubas says:

      how many trades you have left?

      • Jim says:

        4, it's risky but the way I see it I'm going to need to upgrade my final ruck spot eventually

        • ahmad rubas says:

          id go for it

          • Jim says:

            I just missed lockout, if Gawn goes massive and Lynch spuds it up I'm going to regret not asking about this earlier. Thanks for the advice though buddy!

  26. Jim_bob321 says:

    Dangerfield injured…. omg

  27. INPieman says:

    Danger!!! Noooooo

  28. Tyruddanaut says:


  29. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    Danger carried off with a leg injury

  30. Don't Blush Baby says:

    Everyones got him, I just feel for the man himself

  31. Jim_bob321 says:

    Now time to think of captain options..
    Zorko… Docherty… Bont.?

  32. Jim_bob321 says:


  33. Tyruddanaut says:

    Thank the supercoach gods he's back

  34. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Why does DANGER always get bloody injured against Hawthorn!!!! Its incredible. Happens year in and year out. Does my friggin head in!

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Maybe that fit of rage has steeled him. Looks like he is back on. Hope it stays that way………

  35. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    Can't keep a good man down.

  36. Ja191 says:


  37. GloryDays90 says:

    Sigh of relief. Danger is back!

  38. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    Looks like my strategy of "lock danger as C every week" has backfired

  39. GloryDays90 says:

    Nope… he just went down into the rooms again

  40. BlueNath says:

    I predict 100 for Danger only today. What are your predictions?

  41. Joshua says:

    Lucky I vced Danger, spewing I waited a week on Titchell, he is gonna be expensive big time

    • manolaki says:

      I did the same. Was going to take him this week but thought the cats would hold him to a low score.

  42. GloryDays90 says:

    Now i know how Jelwood owners who put the C on him a few weeks back felt :(. Should have VC Danger….

  43. Juzzy says:

    Didn't Roughy get Danger last time out too ??

    He seems to be the only player in the comp who can stop the great man.

  44. Jim_bob321 says:

    Danger still tearing it up

  45. Russty_ says:

    Danger 68…what was everyone worried about? lol

    • INPieman says:

      Not bad for a bloke on one leg playing in the goal square

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Its a bloody miracle. If Cam Guthrie didnt get mothballed because of a headknock, Danger probably would have sat out the second half. Will probably play the game out in the goal square. Concerned about Danger missing a few weeks mind you.

  46. leedy says:

    Dear Community – Robbie Gray FFS, is it OK to think about killing someone provided you don't act on it? There is still a grassy knoll at Adelaide oval, I may be the shadowy figure on it.

  47. Defying_Madness says:

    Guess the Hawks are destined to lose today. Umpiring has been as bad as I have ever seen it. Most of Geelong's goals have been gifted. Expect some free kicks for Hawthorns defenders in the second half to balance out the free kick count.

    • Tibor says:

      If Hawthorn get raped by the umpires in every game for the next decade you'll still be well and truly in front from the past six or seven years, nobody is interested in your sooking

      • Defying_Madness says:

        Great logic, just because Hawks have had success the umpires are allowed to be shit?

        • Tibor says:

          I was suggesting the hawks may have enjoyed a nice run from the umpires over an extended period mate. They certainly earned their success but they had a good go. A large number of us don't shed a tear when a few bad ones don't go your way.

          Your inability to cop it sweet when you get the grubby end of the stick is pretty p155 weak

          • Defying_Madness says:

            It isn't just this game, it's been all year in multiple games with varying teams. What frustrates me is that the coaches and players can be strutinised because they are paid to perform however when it comes to the umpires say one bad word and you are crucified. Umpires should be put under the heat when they ruin games.

  48. Tommo09 says:


  49. Defying_Madness says:

    Razor Ray vs the Hawks. Who will win?

  50. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Danger's new position- Full Forward. Kicking goals at will. What a freak.

  51. Rocksta says:

    Titch you fkn magnificent beast!!!!!

  52. Don't Blush Baby says:

    Jelwood not scoring well, 6 clangers don't help

  53. Tyruddanaut says:

    Dangerfield: Takes two steps

  54. GloryDays90 says:


  55. BrownlowBoy says:

    Dangerfield, have my children. You can also take me home again this year.

  56. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Danger has left Titch in the rear vision mirror and almost out of sight…..who would have thought….

  57. Rick Grimes says:

    It's very nice to bank that Danger VC but everyone has him. The boys will be seperated from the men the day he fails. Could be waiting a while, mind.

    • Derek says:

      Decided not to put VC on danger. Was feeling good at quarter time. The lad is good

  58. Tyruddanaut says:

    They absolutely are. From a non-bias perspective, (Carlton supporter), he's giving away everything at every opportunity

  59. Defying_Madness says:

    It's pretty obvious, most of the Cats goals have been off soft or nonexistent frees.

  60. Stirlsy says:

    Moves Strnadica onto ground, just stand there son and dont do a thing… here have this C

  61. hedski says:

    Woo hoo. Fckn go cats, take that again Smith you front running can't kick a goal prick.

    • Derek says:

      bit harsh mate

    • Defying_Madness says:

      Better team lost the game

    • Ruddigar says:

      Good call didn't want a bar of taking another set shot

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Cats have probably killed off the Hawks season. Gonna be hard to make the eight now. Such is life. At least Danger delivered a masterclass today with Jelwood going to be cheap as chips next week after going sub 100 this arvo.

      • Defying_Madness says:

        I will be disgusted with myself next week when I go from Parsons to Selwood. If we nail some more recruits in the off season we could be back up there again next year. Some of the young guys look promising

        • Derek says:

          It would have been very interesting if the Hawks managed to win that one.

          Hang up the boots now

  62. Jim_bob321 says:

    Still can't believe we are taking Danger's captain score after all that…

    • The_Bird says:

      Are we? its a tricky score….I probably will just to give the bloke the kudos he deserves…amazing effort…if only he kicked that last one

  63. The_Bird says:

    I have had 160+ for more weeks than I can count thanks to Doc, Danger and Kruze

    • Don't Blush Baby says:

      I'll take Dangers score, but I wouldn't be surprised if Teen Wolf goes large after some good form last week and also signing on again.

  64. Derek_2018 says:

    Another weekend of regretting not having Dangerfield and Docherty in my team.

  65. manolaki says:

    Another great round. Goldy has started my trend of poor scores. And waiting a week more for Titch was not a great idea either. How much will Mitchell be next week? Over $600k I am guessing

    • Joshua says:

      Yep, now I have to decide to trade Greenwood (or Lynch) to Jelwood or Titchell. Have 300k in the bank but I might need all the money I can get for upcoming carnage in finals.

  66. manolaki says:

    Is Bolton playing for the Tigers?

  67. Thomas says:

    What should i take from Lynch to keep his score over Witherden?

  68. Beezneez says:

    Just doubled his score from 8 to 16 in the last couple of minutes. At least my opponent has Grundy to match him atm.

  69. Joshua says:

    Who to keep at F6 out of Lynch and Greenwood? Other will be going to Jelwood or Titch. Thinking Lynch out as he has Port in round 23 (scored 29 last time)

    • leedy says:

      Suggest you allow raw emotion to dictate your decision and have a Lynching Party

  70. red5 says:

    me too

  71. guest says:

    So… Reiwoldts 84 or roll the dice on Greenwood?

  72. Russty_ says:

    Anyone know what happened with North's Hibberd today..7 points, did he get hurt or just super-spud it?

  73. Derek says:

    i was talking up the Port boys all week, Hoff or Wingard and in the end did nothing! Greenwood to Wingard next week

  74. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    Patch poison strikes again!
    Jezza out.
    What r the chances?
    Too funny except if u r poor old patch.

  75. Ja191 says:

    cameron late out with hammy for gws

  76. Tyruddanaut says:

    I had doubts. But it looks like I shouldn't have. So far I have had 5 players play with 4 above 100 Danger C and Jelwood 96

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      I spoke too soon. With 5 players in the GC v CM game only one is en route to ton up

  77. Don't Blush Baby says:

    Suns by 6 points atm and down to 2 on the bench for the 2nd half, seriously the Pies should win , if they don't ????

  78. Russty_ says:

    At least Adams isn't crappin his Daks again today, go large young man!

  79. Rick Grimes says:

    What score do we take on Lynch. I'm thinking anything over 75?

  80. Tim says:

    thanks to everyone who told me to get rid of Ablett last week because he was buggered

    • Nick says:

      We're here for advice, whether you take that advice is your own choice.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Is it time to take out the little violin is it?

      Mate, you hit that trade button. Your call, your decisions, your consequences.

      Trade wisely.

    • Derek says:

      Depends who you got instead.

      I traded Gaz to Docherty. Very happy

      • Russty_ says:

        Can't go wrong with that really, or Gaz to Danger or Titch, whining about it though, makes ya look like a whiney lil biatch..Tim.

  81. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Treloar delivers!!

    Well, well well. What a nice surprise. Your head is off the chopping block…….for now.

    Now, over to you Hanners……. Do me proud mate!

    Mate, dont fark it up. I am not in a forgiving mood. Deliver a tonne or I will drop you like a sack of scheit for Jelwood.

  82. Defying_Madness says:

    Might be time to trade out Pendles?

  83. GloryDays90 says:

    Bloody Pendles! Wont be starting him next year… starting to lose his supercoach touch.

  84. Defying_Madness says:

    Should I take Scharenbergs score, or I can loophole Greenwood into Witherden with some nice DPP swaps.

  85. BrownlowBoy says:

    Pieman! Ablett coming back into your team?

  86. Russty_ says:

    Gazza!… injured every second week bastard!…kinda wish I had ya…or not?…lol, not sure.

    You are a talented, little bald bastard though.

  87. Joshua says:

    Next week Lynch to Jelwood, Greenwood will be holding down F6

  88. Trats1999 says:

    Jeremy Cameron late out

  89. hedski says:

    Glad I looped him Pie.

  90. Billioux says:

    Evening all, I find it incredulous that people bitch and whinge about the advice/opinions offer here when it doesn't quite work out. Please give me a spell! That is what SC is all about.. Opinions.. I pumped up B Ebert about 6 weeks ago and i also said nothing good comes from injury prone 290K rookies (scooter). I was chastised big time after Scooter's first 2 weeks. Fair enough. I am not writing this to "told you so" Quite the contrary. I am no guru and have made plenty of blues this year but have backed my thoughts. The moral here i guess is the more opinions/thoughts etc on this forum the better i reckon however at the end of the day it is your keyboard and your team.

    • Russty_ says:

      Well said mate, people that whine about.."someone else making them do something"…probably whine about a lot of things in life, that are their own call.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Correct! This is a forum to talk and discuss SC. At the end of the day, all coaches make decisions, whether good or bad.

      If good, that's great! If bad, cop it on the chin.

      I am with you on this mate.

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      It has taken me a while to realize my gut is more important than everyone else's

      • Russty_ says:

        Yeah right?…there sure isn't any exact science to this caper, guts, luck, research, and timing all play a part.

  91. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Heath Shaw is getting frost bite. 4 SC points at quarter time, with 1 disposal. Not good enough! Even with Zac Williams playing!

  92. Finnius123 says:

    Newman to adams next week

  93. Russty_ says:

    Gawny is looking like a bit of a…shadow of his former Beard!…glad I didn't believe the hype a few weeks back and get him in at all costs…he hasn't shown much yet, so far, a bit of a worry for the beardless ones owners.

  94. Finnius123 says:

    Greenwood is carving up with only 55% TOG

  95. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Max Gawn. WTF? You shave off your beard, and now you play like this? If you have any skeletons in the closet that we need to know about, feel free to let the community know..

    • Russty_ says:

      I got the feeling from his interviews, when he was killing it, that at the time, his motivation was to be "the best ruckman in the competition"..I think his motivation has waned now, that he's probably making big money, probably thinks he can just cruise.

      He won't be Melbourne's number 1 ruckman with that attitude for long.

    • Defying_Madness says:

      Might be wasting trades but I am considering trading Gawn to Martin or Mummy who are currently cheap. Can't be fielding crap like this and I don't have time to wait until he gets his beard back together

      • Russty_ says:

        If you can do that without running out mate, I'd do it, something is terribly wrong with Gawn.

        • Defying_Madness says:

          Have 5 currently, and Parsons to Selwood is locked next week but I am playing for rank so might have to pull the trigger

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        A beard like that takes years to grow back. Watch Stef Martin tomorrow, without Archie Smith. If he tonnes up, straight switch.

    • Billioux says:

      Yep. I fell for him too,luckly loop holed. Hopefully we get something out of him in weeks to come..As for tonight bye bye hipster max hello mad max..

    • Top Gun says:

      Perhaps he needs more games to come good? He was out a long time.

  96. Defying_Madness says:

    Witts to Gawn looking like the stupidest trade I have ever made…

    • Russty_ says:

      You were just trying to get ahead…no way to forsee that kind of spudding from the former best ruck in the comp.

  97. GloryDays90 says:

    Max Gawn was a shocking trade in 🙁 what a flop!

  98. Russty_ says:

    Bloody glad I played Greenwood and benched Pederson this week, Pederson's gone this week coming, from my side.

    • GloryDays90 says:

      Least you didnt trade in Gawn… he is flopping big time

    • manolaki says:

      question is do you take greenwood's score or take a punt on nank?

      • Russty_ says:

        Have to take Greenwood's score, and Nank's cause I have Pederson as emergency…who has scored sweet FK all.

    I have been screaming from the rooftops all year that Sloane can not handle the tag. It is on show again tonight.

    • Russty_ says:

      Yeah for sure Hawk…the guy is a wimp as I stated in my deleted comment lol

  100. Defying_Madness says:

    Someone gave Hanners a drink at half time look at him go

    • Russty_ says:

      If I was his Coach I'd make sure he had a few shots ready to go. at half time… they do after game drunk tests these days?…lol

  101. Russty_ says:

    Kieren Jack could be a handy midfielder if you're desperately short on cash, his 3 round average after this game will probably be around 100. and at about 420 k

  102. Joshua says:

    Heath and Hanners might still have some life in them yet.

  103. Jim_bob321 says:

    What is up with Greenwoods TOG

    • Defying_Madness says:

      Imagine how good he will be when he builds his tank

    • Stirlsy says:

      Simple answer is he is a late comer to our game, the Crows have been staggered by his development, he wasn't expected to be playing in the first, so they are taking there time with him and treating him like a first year rookie despite his age.
      This guy is a freak iv watched him closely and some of the things iv seen him do is just freakish, gun in the making as early as next year.

  104. Defying_Madness says:

    RIP sloane

  105. Jim_bob321 says:

    One question community…
    I've currently put Strnadica in my forward line.. loopholing Wallis and Greenwood.
    If Greenwood does not achieve 80's+ I will swap Strnadica with Wallis and I currently have VC on Danger, thus having C on Strnadica
    So if Strnadica is on my bench with the Captaincy on him would Danger's captain score be counted?
    Cheers community

    • Russty_ says:

      The C can't be on anyone who's on the bench mate. Try it, and you'll see.

      • Jim_bob321 says:


        • Russty_ says:

          The C, has to be on someone who's on-field, but not actually playing, for you to be able to get Danger's score.

          It's not possible to have the C on a bench player.

    • manolaki says:

      to take danger's score put the C on strnadica and put him on the field
      if you want to avoid greenwood's score you should make sure you dont have him as an emergency or on the field
      you can have both wallis score plus danger as VC via non playing C
      from what i have understood from your question

  106. Don't Blush Baby says:

    MAX ??

  107. manolaki says:

    Not trading in Mitchell – thumbs down
    Not trading in Gawn – thumbs up
    Keeping Newman for an extra round – thumbs down

  108. manolaki says:

    What has Greene done since 1st quarter time?

  109. manolaki says:

    If Heath Shaw continues this form I will keep him and trade Newman. The Newman cash will be handy for someone like Mitchel and Dusty for the run home

  110. Cheeky Nando's says:

    Forgot to loop Danger with Maynard, thought I'd be cutting it close after work but in the end I was just knackered, so my question is WHO DO I CAPTAIN!?? Options include – Doc, Simmo, Rance, Dahl, Macrae and JJK.


  111. Russty_ says:

    Kinda wish I'd traded Pederson out this week now…with this week's shite-sucking score he'll probably drop 40 grand and be worth sweet fk all….should still be able to move him out for selwood this week though, with a 30k loss of cash…..ah well cest la vie.

    • JohndJames says:

      Russty you should have traded Pedo out two weeks ago,after Maxy came back,his scoring was always going to go down after that,plus with Hogan just coming back in the writing was on the wall.Also I know everyone is getting stuck into Max,but give him some slack,he is playing with a stuffed back,he can hardly bend over,which is why I didn't trade him in.

  112. Russty_ says:

    They could both be keepers yet mate.

  113. Finnius123 says:

    Tex you can honestly f#$! off as soon as I trade you you bang out a couple of big tons in a row

    • Russty_ says:

      No matter which way you look at it mate, he's always an inconsistent spud…just be happy that he's gone.

  114. Deeboss says:

    Anyone have Ablett as captain this week?

    • johnno2908 says:

      Until about 30 minutes after danger looked dead, yes. Glad Danger came back on, but would have been good for some different captains scores this week!

  115. manolaki says:

    Anyone taking Greenwood's score of 70 that is using him as loophole?

    I have Nank on field at the moment and Greenwood on bench. Something tells me Nank will get the 70 easily

  116. Deeboss says:

    70 is good….

  117. ahmad rubas says:

    mumford strnadica (c loophole danger score) emg gawn

    forwards dahlaus macrae buddy steele nank greene emg stewart

    would it be smart to swap nank and strnadica?

  118. hedski says:

    Well my big fat sausage slaying Mummy has finally come to the party.
    Interesting situation now community, play Nank or B.Hill???
    Opponents all have Nank, Brad has backed out 88,90,100,130 last 4 weeks. I guess that kinda answers itself. Maybe. Sorta.

    • hedski says:

      And I bet Howe (65) and Newman (64) get outscored by my bench (Ryan/Witherden).
      Bunch of pricks.

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      I'd go with Hilly. It's a risk either way but Hill is a POD

  119. Defying_Madness says:

    How is everyone else travelling this week?
    I am sitting on 1751 with Doc, Kreuzer, Nank, Macrae, Dahl, Yeo and Rance.
    Could have been an insane week if Gawn, Pendles and Greenwood had tonned up but apart from that been a very good round.
    There is sure to be some carnage tomorrow

  120. dazandbaz says:

    who should i captain, doc or dusty

  121. Tyruddanaut says:

    I was looking at the fixtures and ladder and decided that I would predict the final ladder (assuming no major injuries occur). So here you are and if you need an explanation for a ranking e.g. You're an angry St. Kilda fan, then just ask for my reasoning
    1. Adelaide
    2. Geelong
    3. Gws*
    4. Melbourne*
    5. Port^
    6. Sydney^
    7. Essendon•
    8. West coast•
    9. Richmond•
    10. St kilda•
    11. Hawks
    12. Western bulldogs
    13. Fremantle
    14. Collingwood~
    15. Gold Coast~
    16. Carlton~
    17. North Melbourne+
    18. Brisbane+
    ^ / + / • / * / ~ Subject to percentage

    • GloryDays90 says:

      Sydney and Richmond will finish higher

      • Tyruddanaut says:

        Sydney: Predicted finish 5-1
        Loss to Adelaide
        Port percentage 22.9 higher
        Port pred. Finish 4-2
        Loss to Adelaide, St. Kilda/Melbourne

        Richmond: Pred finish 4-3
        Loss to GWS, St. Kilda, Hawks
        Very subject to percentage
        Pred ladder 8-10

    • Defying_Madness says:

      Melbourne will struggle to make the 8 considering there next few weeks and their injuries. They lack midfield depth and it was exposed today. Also Richmond have debatable the easiest run home, so I would pretty much lock them in the 8. Swans should also make top 4.

      • Tyruddanaut says:

        Swans must win against Adelaide to make top 4. Other major deciding games include Melbourne vs Port; Port win, they are top 4. Melbourne win, they have to play GWS
        If Melbourne lose to GWS then top 4 is based on percentage
        If Port lose then: Port vs Adelaide (AO)
        If Port win then they are top 5 confirmed. Adelaide win Sydney still have a chance

        • Defying_Madness says:

          Adelaide won't make the top 4 also. I don't see them winning many games until the year ends

    • Derek says:

      Adelaide and GWS have got toughest run home of the teams in the 8.

      Adelaide won't make top 4, and GWS might struggle to make top 8.

      • INPieman says:

        Big call Derek

      • GloryDays90 says:

        Adelaide will make top 4 you idiot…

        • Derek says:

          Have s close look at the draw.Adelaide still long way to go to get top 4

          Where GWS not playing well enough

      • Tyruddanaut says:

        Adelaide must only win 3 games to be in top 4 those are Collingwood, West Coast and Essendon

        GWS can win min. 4 games to be in top 8 assuming Essendon or West Coast win all their games.
        Important games:
        Richmond vs GWS
        GWS vs Freo
        GWS vs Melbourne
        Dogs vs GWS
        GWS vs West Coast

      • Defying_Madness says:

        I have to agree with Derek on this one. My ladder had GWS and Adelaide versing each other on an elimination final

    • JohndJames says:

      I'm a Dees fan and after looking at our draw and injuries I will be happy if we end up in 8th spot,both Port and Sydney will end up above us as should Richmond.

    • manolaki says:

      my thoughts…
      melbourne and essendon wont make the 8
      richmond and saints to replace them
      sydney will finish higher
      gws will finish lower
      hawks may replace eagles
      geelong adelaide and sydney to finish 1-2-3

      • Defying_Madness says:

        Hawks need to win every game to make finals this season. I think we have no chance of playing finals this year however am looking forward to next year

        • Derek says:

          Yesterday loss hurt. Not just cause it was the cats, and that the Hawks were better team, but it finished the Hawks season.

          TMitch the recruit of the season. Hawks done it again

          • Tibor says:

            That's a bit thoughtless Derek, how are Jaeger and Tyrone going to feel about that comment?

            • Defying_Madness says:

              Omeara will be ready to go soon thanks for asking.

            • ProTravo says:

              I don't think anyone cares how Tyrone feels. Clarko gave him enough games to show something.
              Sometimes a spud is just a spud.

              • Tibor says:

                Tyrone is still important because he takes attention away from what a foolish trade omeara is

      • Tyruddanaut says:

        I have Essendon, Richmond and St. Kilda on percentage so very subject to change
        Melbourne will win a min. 4 games
        V Coll
        V Lions
        V St Kilda
        V North

        Sydney winning all their games will get them there. It's other games that will set them in top 4
        Port vs Melbourne (Melbourne must win)
        Port vs Adelaide (Adelaide W)
        Melbourne vs GWS (GWS W)
        GWS vs Richmond (Richmond W)
        GWS vs Geelong (Geelong win)

        • Tibor says:

          As a demon I love your faith but don't share your confidence. Injuries have made top 4 out of the question. Gawn and Hogan are back but still some way off their best. Getting better certainly and quite a few good players still to return. They have done remarkably well all considered and should still make the eight but probably can't do more than that.

          A few Melbourne supporters like to compare us to the 2016 doggies. The 2015 doggies is probably a more reasonable comparison and be happy with that.

          Hope for a better injury run next year because it would be hard to imagine worse

    • BlueNath says:

      Richmond are not pretenders anymore. You have them way off

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Here is my final AFL ladder-

      1- Geelong
      2- Adelaide
      3- GWS
      4- Sydney
      5- Port Adelaide
      6- Richmond
      7- Melbourne
      8- Essendon
      9- West Coast
      10- Western Bulldogs
      11- St Kilda
      12- Fremantle
      13- Hawthorn
      14- Collingwood
      15- Gold Coast
      16- Carlton
      17- North Melbourne
      18- Brisbane

      • Tyruddanaut says:

        Richmond at 6 important games
        Melbourne va Port (Port won)
        Melbourne vs GWS (GWS win)
        Richmond vs Hawthorn (Richmond win)

        Sydney winning all their games will get them there. It's other games that will set them in top 4
        Port vs Melbourne (Melbourne must win)
        Port vs Adelaide (Adelaide W)
        Melbourne vs GWS (GWS W)
        GWS vs Richmond (Richmond W)
        GWS vs Geelong (Geelong win)

      • Tommo09 says:

        I am a Swans fan and we will probably lose 2 more games at least
        Adelaide and Geelong away will be tough games
        Hawthorn in Melbourne will be tough also

      • Ruddigar says:

        You might be being a little optimistic about Hawthorn. Never mind at least you'll get a nice early draft pick…………………..Hang on a minute The Saints will get the nice early draft pick….

        • Defying_Madness says:

          And they will pick up another dud with that pick. What is your point. Hawks are 10th on my end of season ladder

  122. INPieman says:

    Gawn Newman Pendles Howe Lynch rubbish. And that's so far! Oh boy

    • johnno2908 says:

      Pendles, Lynch and Howe are becoming an issue.

      • INPieman says:

        Not enough trades to get rid of the turds. Pendles hit the wall earlier than anticipated

    • Beezneez says:

      I have Newman, Pendles and Lynch. Lynch is the biggest stain – either scores really low or, occasionally (very), will pump out a high ton. Would have been better off keeping WHE. Should have replaced him with Josh Thomas who was on my bench. The last fwd spot has been a worry all year. IMO the only alternative is to take Franklin's yo -yo scores for about another $50K but trades are at a premium.

  123. Deeboss says:

    1800 with Bont, Dahl, Macrae, Doch, Yeo and Nankervis to come… 2390 Projection.

  124. BlueNath says:

    I was going to loophole Sloane and put Lloyd at D6 and Newman to D7. But in my infanite wisdom at the last moment, I moved Lloyd to M9 to loophole him instead and left Newman at D6 (and Sloane back on the park). Arrrgh! Plus Gawn is killing me!!

    However, some others are back firing and I'm predicted to get 2371 at this stage so can't be too upset I guess.

  125. Brett says:

    Hoping someone can help with a loophole query.. if I have both Parsons & Strnadica as fwd emergencies if I bring Strnadica on field for Nankervis & whack the C him to get Dangers 140 as capt will I cop Parsons 34 or Nanks score? Ie Do they take highest scoring emerg in fwd line or lowest?

  126. Deeboss says:

    Around what rank do you reckon you should be to have a decent crack or have any chance at winning the 50K? I'm ranked just under 7K, is it still possible from here or am I dreaming? LOL

    • Pman says:

      You are dreaming. I'm ranked around 6000 and are NO chance to win the $50K but I'm all about winning cash leagues and aim to make top 10,000 every season.

      • patrick365 says:

        What is a cash league exactly and how do you get into them? *asking for a friend*

        • Tyruddanaut says:

          You need to make them with mates and have a gamble on them. The winner gets the cash mostly but sometimes it's runners up too and sometimes the wooden spoon. You have toorganise it yourself

    • Iamme says:

      I'm currently sitting at 1640 in the rankings and 1647 pts behind the leader in order to catch him I'll need to out score him by 235 for the last 7 weeks….no chance. Deeboss is right just conserve your trades and try to win your league.

      • Iamme says:

        Sorry I meant Pman is right.

      • Skinny McThin says:

        Unless those in front of you have used all of their trades and some key players get injured, then you'll win easily.

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      Maximum 250 at this point

    • Rocksta says:

      You're dreaming.

      • Deeboss says:

        thanks community although still gonna aim for the highest rank possible, I'm all about ranks rather than leagues…

  127. Two Dogs says:

    TECHNICAL QUERY – if I have two playing emergencies on the same line, and a non playin Jeremy Cameron on the ground, will I get the highest or lowest score of the two emergencies?

  128. Tibor says:

    Fair bit of panic around Gawn. Not going to buy into it personally. I'm playing to win a league rather than overall ranking so for me it is fairly predictable that a 208 cm ruck man who misses such a huge block of footy won't just come straight back and resume an All Australian standard. Continuity of footy is so important to plenty of players and even more so for big blokes be they ruckman or key forwards. He actually looked pretty good in patches last night especially his ruck work early on. Looked absolutely cooked towards the end . If you waited and brought him in It might be smart to stick fat now because in a few weeks time with a bit of footy in him he could be your SuperCoach finals trump card…

  129. Tyruddanaut says:

    1927/17 and en route for 2427

  130. Shake n bake says:

    Hope Doch goes ok for today Derek. Rolled the dice with Pendels as VC and you traded out Ablett for Dock last week!

    • Derek says:

      It has been a tough year, as a result we start doing desperate things.

      Docherty will be 100% midfield today. Not sure if that is good or great.

  131. manolaki says:

    Just realised Nank is playing CHF rather than R. How much do you think it will affect his output

    • Rocksta says:

      Not sure,
      But lets face it………Nank isn't a good tap ruckman, and Soldo can ONLY play as a ruckman as he is one dimensional.
      I'm interested to see how it pans out, as Nank is a good mark around the ground, but not sure that will translate to being a good marking forward option.
      I'm sure they"ll boyh play in the ruck though. My gut feel is that Nank will score poorly today.

  132. Skinny McThin says:

    Par 2400?

    • Pitch 72 says:

      Why, is that what you scored Skinny..

      • Skinny McThin says:

        Not yet but the 'predicted' range in my league is from 2350 to 2519 so I'm guessing that 2400 will be about par.
        I've answered your borderline troll question so if you're not going to answer mine STFU

    • JohndJames says:

      Looks about right,going to beat my 2370 from last week,which was my best score of the season,might even break through the 2400.

  133. jimmy_raiders says:

    Current score is 1970 with Dusty, Bont, Dahl, Doch and Kreuzer to come. Hoping for another good day of scores!

  134. big mac says:

    c on dusty or doch?

  135. Deeboss says:


  136. Stirlsy says:

    Nank starting Full FWD don't sound good. 28secs for first goal this could be ugly.

  137. SCdonkey says:

    Demmit!! Didn't make it, was gonna trade JJ to Zorko. Ah well hopefully JJ goes big today.

  138. Ben says:

    Nank barely in fwd

    • Don't Blush Baby says:

      Has 34 pts atm , he can where he likes if he keeps that up

    • Holty says:

      Might have something to do with the fact i bought him into my team 1hr ago for Cripps

  139. Jim_bob321 says:

    Hello Dayne Zorko?

  140. DZ THE GREAT says:

    Was going to trade in Dusty,Rocky or Zorko this week , I'm only playing for leagues, couldn't make up my mind ,glad I saved my powder

  141. GloryDays90 says:

    FML Zorko back to flopping again!

  142. Defying_Madness says:

    I guess taking Greenwoods score over fielding Witherden was a bad move. Already nearly beaten his score

  143. Joshua says:

    Witherden is stuck on my bench 🙁

  144. Ahmad Rubas says:

    Why did I chuck the E on greenwood instead of witherden

  145. DacZawson says:

    At what score would you take Witherden over Bont?

    • manolaki says:

      The way he has been playing…95.

      I have a feeling he will go large though and push out a 140 today.

  146. Defying_Madness says:

    Yeo out hello Parsons……

  147. Jim_bob321 says:

    OMG Yeo out and Wallis is just sitting on the bench……………..

  148. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    I need to get some forward cover ASAP, i was looking at a good score this weekend until yeo was a late out

  149. Shake n bake says:

    Yeo out

  150. manolaki says:

    Is Rockliff alive?

  151. James T says:

    hey guys, in a crucial clash right now that's going down to the wire. Got Yeo apparently with a late out, only got eddy and Bolton on the fwd bench with greenwood and Deluca-Cardillo as my only swings in the midfield. Is there any way I can avoid this loss I will take if I get a 0 for Yeo?

  152. SCdonkey says:

    Meh!! Thought i avoided Lynch 58 point, now that Yeo is out. Lynch will be my lowest scoring player so far.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Dusty is a gun alright. I knew when I traded him in I would not have any issues. Got the E on Witherden so will grab the 110 for Yeo. Happy days. Lynch is my only dud score so far this week. Mind you, Bontempelli looks like he is having an absolute shocker. If I can get 2400+ from here I will be happy. Cheers Doncs

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      You want to shoot Dusty in the arm and you love wotherdens balls?

  153. TheGreatBozza says:

    When you grab Yeo over Buddy this week #FMSC

  154. hedski says:

    That'll learn me for trying to be clever, got Nank sitting useless on the bench about to ton up and now I'll have to take Lynch's spud score for Yeo. D'oh.

    • Defying_Madness says:

      Better than Parsons 32 I have to take while I have Witherden sitting on the bench

      • hedski says:

        Yeah I'm looking at Witherden on my def bench well outscoring Rance, Howe and Newman.
        Stringer has done a String so there goes my draft stars team this week.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Not ideal mate. But hey, sh1t happens

  155. Joshua says:

    Yeo out means a donut with a 110 (Witherden) sitting on the bench, bloody hell.

    • GloryDays90 says:

      In the same boat mate. Sounds like Yeo need a Tea spoon of cement and harden the f#ck up!

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Ouch…..Got the E on Witherden. So will grab his 110 for s0ftc0ck Yeo. How come you didn't whack the E on him mate? Witherden is capable of producing decent scores.

      • Joshua says:

        Can't switch due to the lateness of the game. Did have the E on him.

  156. Joshua says:

    anyone wanna talk me in/out of tipping freo?

  157. BrownlowBoy says:

    What is wrong with Dahlhaus.

  158. TOPHAWK1 says:

    WTF is going on with Dahlhaus???? Seriously, the bloke is playing like a gaylord. Lift FFS.

  159. Skinny McThin says:

    F*ck Off late outs.
    Pendle, witherden, Darcy on bench with Yeo at F1 and no way to re-arrange

  160. Steeeve says:

    So next season can we start with Gawn at $520k and Nic Nat at $475k? Very good value for starting rucks!

    • Derek says:

      Next year, won't be spending much on rucks. The number of stoppages is reducing every week. Average this week will be under 70. Teams are playing on at all costs and the umps letting them go. Plus deliberate out of bounds.

      Clubs will go with smaller nimble rucks and we will see very few lone wolf rucks.

      Need to find another Witts type for next year

      • DZ THE GREAT says:

        Kruezer ?

      • Jack Dyer says:

        Always worth their weight in gold if they are not one trick wonders. Must win hit outs, take contested marks and kick at least a few goals.

        A good man will always beat a good little man

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      I won't play Nic Nat next year. I know what a year off can do now

    • manolaki says:

      How about O'Meera next year

      • Tibor says:

        Putting JOM or a Daniel Wells into your SuperCoach team is a tiny little look into the mindset of the football clubs that have recruited them.

        They get paid plenty then they don't play nearly enough. Once in a blue moon they show glimpses of their great talent but it really provides bugger all in terms of club success.

        My absolute favourite part is when the clubs are staggered and can't believe their misfortune when these blokes are injured and unavailable. Who could possible have predicted these blokes would do what they did every year at their old club.

  161. Defying_Madness says:

    Is it a bad idea to consider bringing in Fyfe next week over Selwood? Traded Fyfe out a while ago to Kreuzer but it looks Fyfe may be fit again. The trade would be Parsons to Fyfe

    • Tibor says:

      Fyfe does look the goods again but the Ross factor should not be forgotten. Selwood is a star the early finish from the big hit a few weeks back knocked his price way down and he hasn't been himself since, I will be backing him to bounce back because he is a genuine hard bastard, gets close to the best run from the umps in the history of football too so that doesn't hurt

  162. Derek says:

    Fine player

  163. Thomas says:

    Due to Yeo being a late out, meaning i had to take Lynch's score, I need Neale to score 125 for me to win my main league. Based on his second halves last couple of weeks, i'm not liking my chances…

  164. Don't Blush Baby says:

    I need Teen Wolf to score approx 135 ,start howling !

  165. Defying_Madness says:

    Heard on the news Pendles might be injured. This explains the turds he dished out recently

    • Jose says:

      I think the finger injury happened just yesterday so it only explains 1 turd

  166. Iamme says:

    I'm happy with this week. 2388 including Rocky & Sloane spudding it up, also had to take Harwick's 55 as Yeo was a late out.

  167. MyHighestScore says:

    Finished with 2503! Happy as Larry this week

  168. BomberNoremac says:

    2504 for me and whatever Neale scores in the last minute or two. Par???? Seems to bug scores this week

    • Northerner says:

      With the late outs I suspect mid to high 2300s to be par

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      That is above par alright, Wayyy above par. Excellent score. Great stuff

      • BomberNoremac says:

        Ranked 27 so hoping to climb a bit finished on 2509

        • TOPHAWK1 says:

          PAR for you is an Eagle, or perhaps an Albatross for most of us. 😉

          I reckon you will creep further up the rankings after the reset in the next hour or two. Probably find yourself inside the top 20 IMO. (Hopefully I will be inside the top 3000- happy)

          Good luck in the chase for the $50K.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Top 20 alright. 11th if you dont mind! Knocking on the door to crack the top 10.

      • BomberNoremac says:

        Very happy with that. Top hawk what do you think of these moves Ainsworth and Ryan to Kreuz by drop Ryder to forward and then pick up a cheap rookie either that freo bloke or a heap mid/fwd dpp so I can swing greenwood as cover

    • Russty_ says:

      I got 2288 and only dropped 272 spots so 2500 is way above par this week, well done.

  169. Defying_Madness says:

    Finished on 2369 this week which is unfortunate. Today was full of carnage with the Yeo late out forcing me to take Parsons 32. Gawn, Dahl, Greenwood and Rance also did me no favors while Witherden sits on the bench.
    How did everyone else go this week?

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      2483 for me this round. Nice to bounce back after my mediocre 2224 effort last week.

    • JohndJames says:

      2404,my top score of the year,also had to use Parsons score for Yeo like most others,won my eight league games and look like making the finals in seven of them.

    • manolaki says:

      Disappointing 2326 with Yeo out and the low scores of Newman Goldy Rocky Dahl Greenwood and Darcy with Witherden on the bench. Still won league games but not much impact on overall ranking

    • The Ranger says:

      2343 and lost 4 out of 5 league games.
      Lost one of them by 1pt.

  170. The BONT says:

    2457 this week for me probably just par. I saw Yeo was a late out so went with a tade to kennedy

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Good score. Well above par. Happy with my total of 2483. We will hopefully jump a few places in the rankings this week.

    • Pman says:

      Better than par I would think.

  171. Pman says:

    2374 and losing Yeo and copping Parsons rubbish score of 32 cost me 2400+, I'm guessing 2300 is a paer score this week?

  172. Joshua says:

    Just scraped 2400 this week, proud considering Withers was stuck on bench and Yeo out meant s donut. Could've easily been 2550, oh well.

    • Joshua says:

      Whoops counted wrong, 2301 could have been 2450, still par I think

  173. CaptKaOs says:

    The medical reports this week will be very interesting. It could be the perfect storm.
    Danger, Pendles (injury). Sloane (concussion). Dusty (possible mrp). And does anyone know why Yeo didn't play?

  174. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    Stuff u parsons u useless [email protected]
    3 weeks scored 70-90 on my bench not needed
    The one time I need u as cover as yeo was a late out (cheers for that) u score a putrid [email protected]@[email protected]@#@@#!! FFS.
    Get the hell outta my team trading as soon as SC opens at 9!
    Lost my league by 7. Parsons u turd.

    • manolaki says:

      I know the feeling. He scored 19 in round 7 and I lost my top two encounter by 32 points and ruined my unbeaten streak

    • Russty_ says:

      Hey mate, bad luck there….I had Hibberd covering for Yeo…lol, got his huge 7 points 🙂

    • Defying_Madness says:

      He is out of my team this week for sure, I don't care if wips out 100 next week I will still be happy. The question is whether I should bring in Fyfe or Jelwood.

  175. SCathiest says:

    Had the E on Witherdens 109 on the bench with no way to loophole.
    Then Yeo was a late out. Yeehaaaaa!

    • Joshua says:

      Same. Did they even say why Yeo was out? Couldn't be stuffed playing?

    • Monkey says:

      And some of the guys say that not much luck comes into SC – that it is about getting your initial picks right, get to premium quickly blah, blah, blah. I know. My opponent also had Yeo out.

  176. Shake n bake says:

    2425 this week but have to say my rucks Jakobs 60 goldy 61 who didnt have a touch in the last qtr can get stuffed!!!

    • TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

      Parsons can get stuffed
      Not to mention big max gawn cold

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Very nice score Shake.

      Rucks have been a friggin nightmare this year. All over the place. I started with Stefan Martin, Nankervis, Stradnica and Sandi. Still have the first 3, and replaced Sandi with Ryder months ago. I just flip flop these guys around in my side week in week out to try and keep the points coming in. Now that Ryder has an ankle problem, I can see my strategy potentially being tested to the max next week.

      I am a happy chappy with a 2483. Time to have a bourbon and stress about next week, next week. Cheers

      • Shake n bake says:

        Im still at work!! Ive got Ryder fwd and brought Goldy in for Sandi straight after Nths bye rd. ohwell!! Awesome score thou Hawk.

  177. redherringfc says:

    Everything bad i said about Yeo all year I take back. The guy just won me two league matchups.

    Almost makes up for the horrors he put me through last year.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Hehehehe. Got Witherden's score did ya? Me too.

      Isn't it nice to have an E player tonne up and then the last onfield player (Yeo) in the round a late withdrawal. 109 SC points for doing nothing, AND not stressing about Yeo's performance during the match.

      Thank you SC gods. I do appreciate it!

  178. Jim_bob321 says:

    Greenwood to Jelwood anyone?

    • Pman says:

      I'm going Berry to Jelwood as Greenwood still has cash to make and is capable of 100's and may even be a M9 or F7 keeper.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Not going Jelwood this week. Time to sit on my trades. Jelwood will still be great value the following week after his 96 yesterday.

    • Joshua says:

      Probably lynch to Jelwood for me depending on Jelwoods break even, otherwise will wait and see if Greenwood is a viable F6 for another week.

    • manolaki says:

      Thinking about it. But might go Newman or Berry to Jelwood. Also want Mitchell so will need to see what happens

  179. Will says:

    Hey community, who would you pick out of Jelwood and Ebert?

  180. Russty_ says:

    So, just got home, why was Yeo the late withdrawl?…I had him in the mids and got Hibberd's 7 as the replacement…YAY!..still got 2288 but could've been so much better !

    • Deeboss says:

      hip hip hoooray!!

    • Defying_Madness says:

      minor leg injury from last weeks game apparently

    • JohndJames says:

      You must have had someone better to have the E on in your mids Russty.

      • Russty_ says:

        No unfortunately, I had Brown, Cousins and Hibberd.

        • JohndJames says:

          That's not good Russty,you really need at least one good player on your bench,I have SPP and Witherden as my back up in the mids,Cousins being the non playing one,it's my fwd bench that is crap,with Parsons as my only playing one.

          • Russty_ says:

            Cheers John, yeah I've rectified it now, got rid of Pederson for Selwood and Pickett out for Josh Thomas so, my bench looks better now With Ryan/Scharenberg….Greenwood, Cousins, Hibberd…..Thomas and Brown..oh and Soldo lol

            • JohndJames says:

              That's much better,both backs are good,same as mine,Greenwood for the mids and Thomas for the fwds.If I had enough trades I'd be looking at Josh Thomas as well.PS you still had Pickett ?

              • Russty_ says:

                Hahah yeah mate and Brown, who hasn't made me a dollar, wanted to conserve trades for the run home but am using 2 this week, leaves me with 5 ..hope that's enough, how you travelling mate, how's the rank going?

                • JohndJames says:

                  Hi Russty,posted my best score for the year this round of 2404,moved on up 1522 places to 5883 and won all my leagues,even beat the Phantom,which I was rapt about,looking at making seven of my eight league finals,so happy with that,not so much my trades left though,which are only 4,burned too many trades trying to keep up the cash generation.

                  • Russty_ says:

                    That's a nice move up the ladder this week, 5883's very respectable, considering there are over 205000 playing, and 7 out of 8 Leagues finals should be fun for ya, I'm probably gonna get into 8 out of 10 of mine, being in the top 6 or higher in those 8 leagues.
                    4 trades not too bad, although you need to be careful, can you last until the finals start before making any more? 4 should get you through to your Grand Final if you can hold out till finals start in 3 weeks.

                    • JohndJames says:

                      You are going along nicely as well Russty with your 8 out of 10 finals bound,I might have to make one more trade before then,since I have no Ruck cover,still have Sandy,didn't get Darcy,so if either Ryder or Nank are injured I'll have to replace them,probably with Kreuzer.

                    • Russty_ says:

                      Cheers John, that's tough having Sandi $438 k sitting on your bench, I'd be tempted to trade him out for a cheapo and bank the cash so you can go bang bang in the finals if you want to….chances are, you'll have to anyway at some point.

                    • JohndJames says:

                      Was looking to do just that Russty,with Darcy two weeks ago,but with trades low,decided not to,so Sandy will just sit on the bench,being used as a C loophole until Ryder or Nank are going to miss games,then I will trade him out for Kreuzer or Gawn,if he comes good.

                    • JohndJames says:

                      I'm thinking of trading out Parsons for Kreuzer,move Ryder to the fwds and have Kreuzer in the Ruck.Uses most of my cash but gives me cover in the Ruck,and Greenwood as my E in the fwds instead of Parsons.

  181. BlueNath says:

    I can't believe Danger (if he plays) is projected to score 158 and still lose $!! (BE = 162)

    • Joshua says:

      Might smash that, if he plays. By any chance do you know Jelwood break even? Footywire hasn't updated.

      • BlueNath says:

        Yep, BE of 55. He is projected to score 79 this week and jump by $10,500. But surely he'll score more than 79! He'll go three figures for sure so will jump at least 20k this week

      • Russty_ says:

        55 this week Josh, he'll start going up in $ again after this week.

      • TRIGGA_HAPPY says:


    • BomberNoremac says:

      He is priced at 784k though which is huge

    • GloryDays90 says:

      He wont play….

  182. Pete says:

    So did anyone predict Fyfe's return to form ? How could he have pumped out averages in the 80s for nearly ten rounds and suddenly start to pump out big scores in the last 2 rounds ?

    • Whitey says:

      Finally over his inury.

    • BlueNath says:

      Looks fit again. Moving freely. Will be a lot of people now going Fyfe over Jelwood this week

    • Iamme says:

      Cause he's been carrying an injury, I think he is well and truly over that now though Pete

      • Pete says:

        Damn it ! Offloaded him for Cripps last week than went to Zorko. Wasted 2 trades !!

    • Deeboss says:

      predict the unpredictable…

    • JohndJames says:

      Had Fyfe from the start as a keeper,didn't have high expectations for him so I just kept him,was still going to be a good M8.

    • Whatyasmokin says:

      Well he wouldve gone to selwood this week, great comeback now I may have to wait a week on Myers to go up.

  183. The BONT says:

    is it too risky to trade Rance to Hurly with only 3 trades left

    • Joshua says:


    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      I have both. Very happy.

    • Whatyasmokin says:

      Will bite you bigtime.

    • Rocksta says:


    • Russty_ says:

      Rance is still averaging 89 Bont, with 3 trades left you've gotta try to be patient mate and hold on for a few weeks, finals in 3 weeks..and you'll need trades to get through.

      Rance's last 3 scores before his last 2 poxy scores were 109, 115 and 113 so have faith he'll come good.

  184. Joshua says:

    Lynch to Jelwood, Greenwood at F6 then upgrade later if need be a good trade?

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      I like it.

      Depends on how many trades you have left however. If you have 5 or more, then do it. If you have 4 or less, wait a week and reconsider.


  185. Pete says:

    Offloading either Sloane or Heppell this week for Jelwood. Which one should go ?

    • BomberNoremac says:

      Sloane surely has to come good

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Heppell out for Jelwood. Easy.

    • Whatyasmokin says:

      Not a big fan of either move but I guess heppell.

    • Rocksta says:

      I wouldn't make either trade at this stage of the season, unless you are full keeper and have at least 5 trades left. It is a Luxury trade.

  186. Deeboss says:

    anyone clicking the trade button on Sloane this week? Sloane to Zerret this week is very arousing….

  187. BomberNoremac says:

    what do you think of these moves Ainsworth and Ryan/ scharenberg to Kreuz by dpp Ryder to forward and then pick up a cheap rookie either that freo defence bloke or a cheap mid/fwd dpp so I can swing greenwood as cover. Would make we true full premi with greenwood and witherden as main cover and ability to switch both across lines. Thoughts?

  188. garfield_da_cat says:

    Anyone know what Jelwoods breakeven will be going into rd 18?

  189. Cpt Pugwash says:

    Any sites up with the BE's?

  190. ahmad rubas says:

    anyone know where to find what teams score well in supercoach?

    • IntheNickofTime says:

      Go to Rankings, it'll automatically be sorted by total score for the year. You can also sort by their score for this round. Have a look at their starting 22.

      • ahmad rubas says:

        i meant afl teams like st kilda etc like which afl team score well in supercoach ahaha. Thanks for trying to help tho i should of been more specific lol 🙂

        • Ja191 says:

          um I guess you could go on fanfooty and click on different games and it will have a stat of which team had more supercoach points (how they were distributed). May take a while but it the only thing I can think of

    • Cpt says:

      Go to ranking on SC

  191. Rocksta says:

    What happened to Mitchell Hibberd and how long is he likely out for?

  192. Goat says:

    I can't resist mountford to jelwood to make my M9. Gives me a perma loop occupied by
    Sloane next week. Amy thoughts?

    • Rocksta says:

      If you are full keeper, and have the trades, go for it.

      • Goat says:

        Thanks. Not quite full premo but who are the best forwards right now? Keep getting 60 in my full premo mids….

        • Russty_ says:

          Buddy, Macrae, Heeney doing ok lately mate, who do you have?'s bloody frustrating (so called) premo's scores lately.

    • Russty_ says:

      Selwood ain't gonna be any cheaper than this week for sure!

      • Goat says:

        Thanks Rusty. Yeah I have Macrae and could add Buddy or Heeney for Parsons on my bench. Just can't decide who. Timing is everything in SC and I am weighing up trades vs form. Only 6 left and have to make them count.

  193. Chief says:

    Can't decide on last mid spot out of Dusty, Merrett or Neale?

  194. red5 says:

    How do people rate Toby McLean FWD $ 459,000?
    108.0 3 Rd Avg
    96.0 5 Rd Avg
    BE 36
    It's either Parsons to McLean for last FWD or
    Parson to Young then Stewart to Heeney

  195. neil Demons Delight says:

    Franklin has become a must have now .Gone are his on field dramas fairly consistent though be prepared for a 60.and horse wont rest him Down side is he is far from a pod.. Hurley is another developing nicely in my case better than Tuohy or Howe . Captains choice and vc particularly looping all important now. for what its worth my top four Geelong gws Sydney port Adelaide on per centage cheers

    • Monkey says:

      It is interesting to note the various flavours of the month. A couple of weeks ago it was Gawn and now those who believed the rants jumped on him but he is a spud.

  196. ProTravo says:

    Is Rockliff done? Anyone think he could bounce back?

    • INPieman says:

      Debating whether to trade him or bench him. Only 14 touches yesterday. Rubbish

      • ProTravo says:

        He has a good record against the Blues and they're playing at the Gabba.
        Might give him one more week before i blow anymore trades.

    • manolaki says:

      He better bounce back. I brought him in, he got 147 or 148, didn't play 4 rounds, and has been scoring terribly since. Paid top dollar for him so will lost a bit trading him out now

      • ProTravo says:

        I got him in at the same time Manolaki.
        Sideways traded Hanners who was at 600k at the time and didn't think he could maintain it.
        Seems I was doomed either way.

    • TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

      Be a handy cheap m9 to being in come finals.

    • Whatyasmokin says:


  197. Benjamin B says:

    I Am full premo (Counting Nank in FWD as premo) – i wanna bring in Heeney this week.

    Goo idea? will leave me with 4 trades left

    • manolaki says:

      Hold mate – 4 trades not much left
      Unless you are going for overall glory

    • Whitey says:

      I'm down to 3 trades, I agree with mano that we are both short in trades but if you have good DDP cover over the ground you can take the risk. Are you trading Nank to him or a rookie? If it's a rookie I say go for it but if its for Nank I wouldn't bother.

  198. Horry3 says:

    Shaw seems to have a revival. I have seven trades but am thinking of swapping Newman to Shaw instead of using two trades and grabbing Hurley. But, if I did that, who is who is a cheap back if I trade Schanerberg?
    Worth it?

    • manolaki says:

      Shaw has improved. Not scoring like he used to but if he can keep getting 90+ that's good enough for me

  199. HairyHead says:

    Shaw seems to have had a revival. I have seven trades but am thinking of swapping Newman to Shaw or should I consider Roberton.

  200. manolaki says:

    Any Danger news?

    • ProTravo says:

      Should be fine. If there was any real injury concern Geelong wouldn't have risked putting him back on the ground, even as a forward.
      The hobble was mostly for the cameras.

  201. Whitey says:

    Firstly, cheers to all the advice and comments over the past month. With the communities help I have been steadily rising in the ranks.

    Moving on Rance this week. I can either swap LLoyd into the def and get Selwood or straight swap for Hurley. Thoughts?

    Thanks in advance.

  202. Frank says:

    Tom Rockcliff!!!!

    I just need to vent!!!

    That is all.

  203. Muftamu says:

    At last I have found a way of getting Docherty by trading Parsons to Young, WB, who will get more games, plus one of my poor performing backs. Now, Doc, don't do a hammie, right!

  204. rory says:

    what does every think about blakely, he the real deal, becuase his 3 round average is 121 and other than one 78, he hasnt gone below 98 in 8 weeks. your thoughts please?

    • neil Demons Delight says:

      good move rory except whose coaching him

    • ProTravo says:

      I will be locking him in for next year. Should be a defender and will only get better.

  205. BigBuggars says:

    F'n late outs at the end of the round. Needed the win to get into the 8 in very competitive league. Final match up of the weekend is Yeo vs Ryan and I'm already marginally ahead (playing against the only person in SC that doesn't have Yeo). Instead of cruising to victory, end up with Parsons 32 points and scraping in for a draw. Now in 9th and 6 points behind. :o(

  206. Bbbbbenny says:

    Just knocked off work at the recycling plant and have noticed some discussion about trading out Newman who has been ok but I also need to strengthen one D6 and eventually/maybe Greenwood my F6
    Docherty – $645K @ 120. High of 153, low of 91.
    Hurley – $544 @ 102 but last 3 @ 116. High of 133, low of 73.
    I am probably the only Carlton supporter who doesn't have Doc!! Very tempting but I could do with the extra $100K+ by trading in Hurley.
    Jock and other wise heads, what do you think? Going for league.

    • rory says:

      doch might drop in price this week and hurley has a low breakeven and he is unique so probs go with hurley

    • neil Demons Delight says:

      The money could be invaluable this time of year and Hurley not only good of recent but consistent Go for hurley

  207. neil Demons Delight says:

    Very tempted to shift YEO to mids and go with Buddy or heeney

  208. rory says:

    who should i swap out pendles and sloane for, maybe neale, dusty, ablett, even blakely as a pod

  209. Faceplant says:

    I think I am about to break one of my SC golden rules this week by trading in Young from my mighty Dogs after only he has played ONE and not two games which will enable me to get Docherty. I saw the Doggies game and I think Young will not be a flash in the pan and be a handy bench player or am I seeing him through Rose coloured glasses? Anyone care to comment?
