PODCAST: LYCETT AND FORGET

SCOTT LYCETT. The name on everyone’s lips. Kev wrote him up today and there is no doubt your R2 selection will make you and break you in season 2018.

Lekdog and Patch discuss Lycett and other West Coast selections alongside players from Richmond, St Kilda, Sydney and the Doggies.

They also have a gander at some of the JLT significant games from the week before.

They also announce the winner of the AFL team suit for our favourite POD that went up on Facebook!

How are your teams shaping up, community? What do you want to see next week now team reviews are through? Are you throwing yourself to the Dogs on Lycett?

As always, keep your eyes peeled on the site for more content going up every day – and let us know what you want to see!

  1. Finnius says:

    Hey boys – loving the work as always! It is getting better every week :)))

  2. Patch says:

    Apologies again for being late this week – Lek and I were both beset by a whole bunch of time constraints, technical difficulties and Other Life Things™.

  3. Finnius says:

    Who would we rather – Cripps and 105k or Crouch and 33k?

    • Patch says:

      Depends on what the 105k becomes. If it's just loose change, I'd wager Crouch will score more and thus (Higgo taught me that word) should be picked.

      If the 100k turns a 350k defender into Heath Shaw, take Cripps.

    • Russty_ says:

      Cripps has averaged over 100 once in his 4 years..all I remember about him having picked him probably 3 of those years is…disappointment.

      • Tucker says:

        He started 2015 as a 200k rookie and averaged 96, amazing return
        The next year he was a solid premium mid at 107 with an insane 2nd half to the year
        Last year was the only disappointment with his injuries limiting him to 15 games and a 25 in his last game pulling his average down.
        You're selling him well short, he's a LOCK

    • Captain Risky says:

      Cripps biggest selling point is the round 12 bye. Crouch, Danger, Dusty, Fyfe all round 14.

  4. Kyle says:

    Does anyone else have doubts over dusty backing up his 119 average? Ik you are backing him lek but i am along the same thinking as patch. So many marking him in as a guaranteed top 8 mid but i am not sold. His one and only year averaging 110+ and i cant imagine richmond having another dream run like last year. Will his scores drop off this year? I think they may. So for me i will be leaving him out of the starting side and wait for byes to reasess

    • Russty_ says:

      He always seems to drop off at some point in the season Kyle, I picked him up for sub 500k last year…I'm not starting with him, but definitely want to finish with him.

    • Captain Risky says:

      8 scores over 130 last year. Started with 159 against Carlton…
      Like most he will be cheaper at some stage, but will you have the $, or will you have more pressing trade issues?

    • DustyCut says:

      Might sound a bit one-eyed as a Richmond supporter, but I reckon he will. It's a different game in the pre-season, but once the real thing starts, watch the Tiger's midfielders look for him on the outside, or see Dusty go in 3 on 1 and sneak a handpass to a teammate (or go full Nelson Muntz, Wildcats style). He also played some amazing footy in the highest of pressure situations. He just plays footy, and like Danger, he looks a class above everyone out there. Watch him match or go better than 2017 this year.

    • DunNuthin says:

      Yes Kyle for a number of statistical reasons and no 'I reckon' reasons.

  5. Post_MaSloane says:

    Armitage in the mids, Lycett and Forget… It's becoming Madman Moe's Pressure Cooker! (I like it!)

    • Russty_ says:

      Armo in the mids isn't so madman, if he stays ambulatory, Lycett probably is though…he's just as injury prone as Nicnat and Vardy.

  6. ZerrettForPM says:

    Sicily or Armitage?

    • Finnius says:

      Sicily is a keeper whereas Armitage is a stepping stone. It all depends on the structure of your team, however I would be leaning towards Sicily.

    • Patch says:

      Sicily for mine.

      Also VOTE 1 ZERRETT

  7. CheekyNandos7 says:

    Armitage or the Jaeger Bomb? Really what I'm asking is do you choose the guy with bung groins or the kid with knees that are shot to hell?

    • Derek says:

      I’ve had JOM all preseason. After JLT2 I’m starting to think Armitage. Based on his numbers a couple of years ago. He has done it before, we are yet to see what JOM can do

    • The Ranger says:

      I've had JOM all preseason but I'm starting to think I might go pure GnR in the mids

    • Patch says:

      Did you not listen to my rant? NO. MID. PRICERS.

      Except Armitage. But also not Armitage.

  8. Carl says:

    So I know that Lek has a full scale man crush on Cripps, as do I for the record even as a saints man. But will he get the 110ave needed to make him a top 10mid? I can see him getting low 100’s just don’t know about 110.

    • The Ranger says:

      I think he might need this year and another pre season under his belt before he hits full beast mode Carl so I'm holding off for now.
      Jeez he looks good tho…

  9. Jason says:

    I won't be having any Lyars in my team. Hehe get it?

  10. Whats up Doc says:

    Thoughts on the team anyone
    DEF- Shaw, Langdon, Salem, Marchbank, Doedee, Finlayson
    MID- Dusty, Oliver, Merret, Shuey, Aaron Hall, Blakely, LUD, Holman
    RUCK- Simpson, Lycett
    FWD- Menegola, Heeney, Greene, Billings, Lambert, Ahern

    • ZerrettForPM says:

      Guessing your team name is RiskyBusiness

      • Whats up Doc says:

        ahaha no although it would fit the team perfectly, but the team is once again, "Whats up Doc" do love myself a POD team

        • gator59 says:

          Good luck with that side Doc.. Just remember there's no booby prizes in SC

  11. Clueless says:

    Shuey to be tagged and Menegola to not have as much mid time.

  12. redgumwon says:

    If any of you guys are interested I've got some places left in my classic league. The code is 128042

  13. Jimdawg says:

    Not a fan of Lekdog sucking off the blues. Not giving the saints much credit although they were poor, will beat the blues during the year.
    Armitage lock. Bont over Cripps too

  14. IntelDesign says:

    What's the go on cash leagues guys? This must be the quietest period I've come across yet. There's usually someone who advertises for players. Are people losing interest?

    • Finnius says:

      I would be keen to enter as well, but cannot be bothered organising…

      • IntelDesign says:

        Thanks for the response guys. At least some people are keen. Most leagues must have organized early doors. It's probably gonna be a mad scramble from here on in.

    • SW Roosters XXX says:

      I am also keen for a cash league.. put a post up a few weeks ago on a thread, but didn't get much traction……..

    • Heaps Dinkum says:

      I was in one last year from this site, would be keen again.

  15. StevoRivo says:

    Nice Podcast lads. Plenty of relevance.

    To Lycett or not? I have 2 teams, one with and one without.
    It’s a big call & I can hear the fear in Lek & Patch today.

    Shaw or Sicily into D4 if I take the punt, or roll back to Ryder & Naughton.

    Here is the team with Lycett….

    D: Yeo, Laird, Hibberd, Shaw, Doedee, Finlayson (Murphy, Mihocek);
    M: Danger, Titch, Dusty, Fyfe, Cripps, Cogs, Brodie, T.Kelly (Garlett, Holman, Barry);
    R: Gawn, Lycett (Cameron);
    F: Heeney, Billing’s, Smith, Christensen, Rioli (WC), Fritsch, (Ryan, Ahern).

    I’m certain many of you have better starting teams but 2 questions based on this set up…..

    1. Ryder & Naughton or Lycett & Shaw?
    2. Brodie at M7 or LDU?

    Thanks Community!

    • Carl says:

      Brodie > LDU for sure either way.

      I’m having a similar dilemma as well….to Lycett or not to Lycett that is the question!!

  16. Ja191 says:

    news in naninsmith ruptured his ACL at training hmmmmm

  17. Keenbutclueless says:

    Darcy Cameron just became very relevant as an R3 with Naismith going down. Having some cover at R3 possibly strengthens the case for Lycett, as your hand is not forced into an immediate double trade if he goes down.

    • INPieman says:

      Let's see if he's named round 1. In the last JLT game Towers was backing up

      • DustyCut says:

        im going in without Lycett, at the moment Stef Martin and Maxy Gawn. Very easy to bring in Lycett if he impresses and Gawn goes down/Martin shares ruck

    • Russty_ says:

      Sinclair has an ankle injury too…anyone know how bad it is?

  18. Laird Lad Donuts says:

    Changed the team about 4976 times so far but I think this will be the team closest to my final
    DEF- Lloyd, Savage, Lmac, Coffield, Doedee, Finlayson
    MID- Titch, Kelly, Fyfe, Bontempelli, Coniglio, A Brayshaw, LDU, Holman
    RUCK- Lycett, Simpson
    FWD- Billings, McLean, Papley, D Smith, Petracca, Sicily

    • Ja191 says:

      find a way to get gawn in the ruck

    • Josephine Tymms says:

      Try again p

    • Finnius says:

      Picking your top 6 forwards all at once is a terrible idea – I know we can't trust the rookies but we can't really trust the premos. There will be a breakout and someone who drops that you will want to pick up later. Go Papley and petracca to rookies and get gawn and Kreuzer in the ruck.

      • gordo29 says:

        Isn’t he aloud to do something different?

        • ZerrettForPM says:

          no he's mute.

        • Laird Lad Donuts says:

          thankyou! really wanted to do something different to everyone else this year to push myself foward in the rankings, also got almost 600k in the bank for upgrades ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Laird Lad Donuts says:

        600K in the bank will hopefully allow me to upgrade my defence quicker than most and I wanted to try fit as many mid and defence rookies as i can as i see most value in those lines

      • Laird Lad Donuts says:

        also finnius whilst that is probably the safest idea and thankyou, I dont think its such a terrible idea, Simpson and Lycett are in there to make some quick cash while lobb, nic nat and vardy are out, and i have been watching petracca and papley since the end of last year and like what i see, more cash in the bank too

    • Doughboy says:

      I like it LLD!……..McLean, Savage and no Dusty, is just the changes i was tinkering with

      • Laird Lad Donuts says:

        Thanks heaps! Few boys in my team im pretty keen on McLean Papley Sicily Lmac Savage all have to start for me

  19. Blaknight says:

    Witherden or Shaw?

    • Clueless says:

      Shaw

    • Starkingdom says:

      I would go Witherden. Forget his turd game in the JLT, you know he can play.

    • Lazza says:

      Neither. Shaw too slow, Witherden awkward price.. if that’s your price range better options in Lloyd, Tuohy and Savage. I have none of these though … would rather have Sicily. If you have him already then Lloyd…

  20. Paul V says:

    Would love you thoughts here.

    Sicily/Lycett/Coniglio
    OR
    Sicily/Jack Graham/Stef Martin
    OR
    Coffield/Coniglio/Stef Martin (this option means Laird/Hibberd/Rampe only premiums in DEF.)

  21. Frizzy fruit says:

    With Naismith out, the stocks of Cameron round 14 bye will soar, esp if you have Kreuzer round 12 bye and Gawn round 13 bye

  22. StevoRivo says:

    Ryder & Naughton (D4) or
    Lycett & Shaw (D4)

  23. gator59 says:

    Who do you think will average more Ryder or Shaw and there's your answer

    • StevoRivo says:

      Thanks Gator, that’s a line ball call. They should run close 100 avg. The question ties my broader question on Lycett to boost D4, hope Lycett makes cash and upgrade to Ryder later (after his bye). See my earlier post further up this chain.

      • gator59 says:

        My take on your side is 3 premos down back .. 5 premos in mids strengthen the fwds and ditch lycett and get kruz in .. hope this helps you

        • StevoRivo says:

          Ok will have a play around. Kruz & Gawn going to drain cash. Might be tough call.

          • gator59 says:

            only way to go mate … you may think your losing a premo but in reality you will be gaining imho… who ever u pick will average around the same .. no need for upgrading and having nightmares over your ruck department

    • Lazza says:

      Is Patch handing out tablets!!! What are you guys on to be even thinking about Shaw.
      Ryder will outscore Shaw by more than 20 points. Ryder is Top 20 overall. Shaw wasn’t anywhere near the top 100 last year. Closer to 150 than 100.

  24. gator59 says:

    Ok guys i'm opening up another league called…. Fish'n'Cripps …. This a private league… Just let me know your name, team name and where you finished last year and i'll review and consider who stays and who goes… Code is……486097…. this is my last and final league

  25. ILove PatrickCripps says:

    Anyone else planning to start all of Mitchell, Dusty and Danger in their team?

  26. Maverick says:

    chasing some advice please
    MID option 1 : 5 uber premiums & 3 rookies like dow, brayshaw and banfield

    MID Option 2: 5 premiums, coniglio & brayshaw + banfield

    really want option 1 to work for the $$ to spend elsewhere but love the coniglio pick for points.

    • Finnius says:

      I would go option one as I back the mid rookies more than any others

    • Carl says:

      If you’re picking Coniglio you’re banking he’ll go 110ave and therefore be a top10 mid. Otherwise it’s pointless because you’ll have to trade him out. So option 1, as finnius said there are plenty of good mid rookies this year

  27. Steve says:

    Probably the safest rendition of my team so far. Most likely the smartest way to start my team, but I keep getting awful mid-priced thoughts in my head.

    Any thoughts so far?

    B: Laird, Hibberd, Lloyd, Coffield, Doedee, Finlayson (Murray, Mirra)
    M: Danger, Mitchell, Crouch, Merrett, Fyfe, Coniglio, Dow, Banfield (Kelly, Garlett, Holman)
    F: Heeney, Billings, McLean, Stephenson, Ahern, Fritsch (Ballendan, Ryan)

    58k left

    • Tibor says:

      The rewards are there Those of us who grabbed Oliver at a bit over 300 last year are still laughing. Why grab a premium unless you are absolutely sure or a rookie just because he gets picked for round 1 every time. Have a crack at picking the break out player….

      • neil Demons Delight says:

        TIBOR quite right I had OLIVER and I will give another MELKSHAM

        • Tibor says:

          Thoughts on Petracca Neil, I was pretty bullish on him but he is not super cheap. Hogan is cheap if he gets a decent run he could be the break out…options at West Coast too for blokes getting better roles in the absence of Mitchell and Priddis, Redden maybe.

          I like a bit of mid price madness without it we all end up with teams that are too similar and boring….

        • Shake_n_Bake_ says:

          Hey Neil, Did you drop out of Up There Cazaly? Hope you can make it back in Buddy 212948 just incase you lost league no!

      • The_Blacksheep says:

        Parish is a real chance to break out this year. Mid time is guaranteed, its just a matter of how much??

    • neil Demons Delight says:

      rucks?

  28. Mongoose says:

    Of course. And naturally they will drop in price but the problem is: who will you have to sell to buy back in.

  29. TherealCutto says:

    Thanks for picking up the slack fella's. Keep up the great work

  30. Finnius says:

    Cripps and Dusty or Clayton and Crouch?

  31. Rick Grimes says:

    Nanscrevis locked after tonight. Looks to be going to another level. 100+ ave and undervalued.

  32. Tyruddanaut says:

    Supercoach Team of the Week:

    Def: Rampe, Savage, Hibberd, Marchbank, Langdon, Shaw

    Mid: Redden, Fyfe, Shuey, Gaff, Coniglio, Steven, Neal-Bullen, JP Kennedy

    Ruck: Gawn, Martin

    Fwd: Franklin, Caddy, Melksham, D. Smith, Lynch (GC), Harmes

    Total Score: 2903

  33. GloryDays90 says:

    Is anyone else considering Nank this year? Could be a POD

  34. Ben says:

    DEF: Laird, Hibberd, Simpson, Coffield, Naugton, Finlayson (Doedee, Watson)

    MID: Danger, Titch, Kelly, Fyfe, Shuey, Armitage, A.Brayshaw, Banfield (Kelly, Holman, Barry)

    RUC: Martin, Gawn (Olango)

    FWD: Buddy, Walters, D.Smith, Sicily, Stephenson, Fritsch (Ryan, Ahern)

    Any feed back would be appreciated, still very tempted to take lycett at R2, push sicily down back and grab someone like toby mclean up forward.

    • Laird Lad Donuts says:

      Really like it ben, solid defence and some really good pods, buddy walters and shuey look like excellent picks to me

  35. Skinny McThin says:

    Excuse me for repeating myself but I like the look of my own voice.
    What is the advice that you are giving on Lycett?
    Are you suggesting that an average of 80 for 12-weeks is good enough for our R2? Or are you suggesting that we should pay 277k for our R3 so that we can make 150K over 12-weeks?
    Are you guys on crack?

    • Carl says:

      People are suggesting Lycett for R2 and Cameron for R3. The idea that Lycett has ave 80 before and Is a chance to improve that as a sole ruckman

      • Skinny McThin says:

        He's averaged a lot injuries before to Carl, they have another bloke at the eagles who can ruck Nack Knitanewy or something. He's only a little bit broken atmo should be fixed soon surely not more than 8-weeks from now. The of course they also have Mcinnes and that Mcgovern bloke so, if you think Lycett will ever be sole ruck you're all on crack.

        • ZerrettForPM says:

          We don't think Lycett will be a sole ruck all season. Only for 5-9 weeks hopefully. We want him to go up a bit in cash, whilst also ideally scoring around that 80-90 mark. As soon as Ryder's bye is over bam.

  36. Larry says:

    Any thoughts welcome

    Def, Laird. Hibberd. Simpson. Sicily. Naughton. Doedee………..Finlayson. Murphy

    Mids. Danger. Dusty. Titch. Fyfe. Whitfield. JOM. Dow. Barry………..Banfield. Ballard. Holman

    Ruck. Gawn. Lycett…………..Cameron

    Fwd. Heeny. Dev Smith. Petracca. Hogan. Bolton. Keefe……….Garlett. Ryan

    Very little left over, Rookiecan change. Accept the risky mid price fwd set up but am very keen on both the Hogan and Petracca mix. Not sure on Keefe but like the swing with Sicily

    • Carl says:

      Love the Whitfield pick – fairly big POD there.
      If you’re stuck on Hogan then sure but I disagree personally. He’s a key fwd that’s where he’ll play a lot of the year.

      I would downgrade JOM to T.Kelly and use the cash to upgrade one of your mid pricer’s to a premo, I would upgrade Hogan.

      I’d also swing Sicily fwd, ditch Keeffe (he’s only good for a 50ave) and bring in Coffield/Mihocheck/Mirra in defense

      • Larry says:

        Thanks for the reply, hadn't looked seriously at the names you've thrown up but will.

        Stuck on Hogan is probably the best description just feel price is huge unders if this bloke gets a half decent run. A lot of my team is just the big four plus the same rookies most others have so a bit of a gamble here and there is almost a must

  37. David E says:

    Def – Laird, P.Hanley, Hibberd (Melb), O'Shea, Keefe , Doedee (Murray, Cummins)

    Mid – Titch, Danger, Fyfe, THE Zorko,J Kelly, Ahern, Dow, Holman (Barry, Worpel, T Kelly)

    Rucks – Gawn,Sandilands (Cameron)

    Fwd – Heeney, J Kennedy, Smith, Barlow, Higgins , Rioli (Ryan, Fritsch)

  38. Tyler says:

    Anyone reckon Kruuezer will back up 2017 and finish top 2? My current structure is banking on him to do it. If people think he won't who do you think top 2 will be?

    • Big G says:

      Can't believe he is not more heavily selected. Keep it on the low-down….

  39. Big G says:

    Some discussions on forward options please. Is Buddy a better option than Heeney? Are Devon Smith or Toby McLean really solid F3 options? Thoughts on Toby Greene being a top 5 forward by average by season's end?

    • Post_MaSloane says:

      I would say Buddy would score more than Heeney, but it will be a rollercoaster of ups and downs. I think you could do a lot worse than Smith and McLean, I'd say they'd be good for a 90 average. Toby Greene may be top 5 forwards, but surely you wouldn't ruin the integrity of your team by selecting such a flog

      • Lenny says:

        Yep he is a super flog and that can't be ignored. Having said that we picked Goddard for years. Toby toss bag might be just too good to ignore.

        Can you have both Toby and Sicily in the same team? Where does it end.? The short answer is Riewoldt . Bottom line maybe just one flog and leave it there….

    • Bells says:

      Buddy will be the number 1 fwd this year. Heeney could go either way – Hewett is ready for more midfeld time and looks a bit quicker this preseason (Swans REALLY need a bit of pace). Papley is going to get more mid time as he is a bloody good extractor. It just might be Heeney that has the price dip this year, not Buddy.

  40. PeterL says:

    Thoughts Anyone, i'm fairly settled my main concern is FWD but need to confirm which rookies will play in Rnd1
    Def – Laird, Hibberd (Melb), Sicily, Marchbank, Naughton, Doedee (Murray, Mirra)

    Mid – Martin, Titch, Fyfe, THE Bont, Cripps, Heeney, Libba, Brayshaw(Freo) (Barry, J Garlett, Holman)

    Rucks – Gawn,Sauce (Hayes)

    Fwd – Dahlhaus, Lobb, Stringer, Fogarty, Higgins, Ahern (Ryan, Fritsch)

    • ZerrettForPM says:

      FWD line may be shaky this season. I recommend perhaps starting Sicily there instead and invest in another defender rookie like Finlayson.

    • Bells says:

      So many risks in your team that can derail your season.
      Bont, Heeney, Libba, Lobb, Stringer, Marchbank.
      I've gone with teams like this before. Never again.
      Heeney should be fwd or not at all. If Lobb makes it back for round 1 then I bet he starts fwd, not as the ruck – in which case avoid. WIll be a good pick if he plays as number one ruck though. Until that is proven consider Heeney to fwd, Lobb out and get another rookie into the mids.
      Stringer?? Why?

  41. Blaknight says:

    Pretty happy with my team at its current.

    Thoughts / Opinions

    DEF: Laird, Hibberd, Savage, Shaw, Doedee, Murray (Keefe, Mirra)
    MID: Danger, Titch, Oliver, Crouch, Fyfe, Brayshaw (Freo), Dow, Banfield (Garlett, Kelly, Holman)
    RUCK: Martin, Gawn (Olango)
    FWD: Heeney, Walters, McLean, Christensen, Ahern, Rioli (Dear, Ryan)

    Still not sold on McLean. Was Dalhaus about 5mins ago. Stuggling with that 3rd FWD choice.

    30k remaining

    • ToughBretts says:

      I'd trade Mclean into Sicily and use the cash to turn one of Shaw or Savage into Hibberd/Yeo

    • Tyler says:

      Devon smith f3?

      • Blaknight says:

        Yeah it's McLean v Smith v Petracca ATM..

        • D_I_L_D_O_R says:

          I've sided with you and gone Mclean, think he will get alot of mid time as the others rotate forward, look at his natural progression from his first 3 years, only needs another 10% and he's a top 10 fwd. Also have D.Smith based on his role. Petracca a bit overated IMO

  42. Jimmy says:

    Hi community, I’ve seen a lot of you guys select some cheap rookies for your bench and in an ideal world, the cheaper the better if they play. What gives u the confidence they will play though? I’ve seen Doedoe, Fritsch etc. I’m more inclined to pay a bit more and get Alir Alir for example because I’m confident he will play most games and is an expensive rookie price. Would love to get everyone’s thoughts

    • Derek says:

      Cheap rookies will make cash faster. Helps get to full premium faster

      A $123k rookie who scores 60, will go up in price a lot more than a $190k rookie who scores 60. A lot more.

    • Marty says:

      Alir Alir injured isn't he?

      • Bells says:

        Certainly is and far from a certain best 22 player at this stage despite being talked up in the preseason. Could end up playing ruck this year, in which case he'll be a REALLY interesting player.
        Cameron starting ruck tomorrow as he's the only one not injured.

  43. Browncow says:

    I think it is the year of the high priced rookie Jimmy. Lots of options in the 150-200 bracket. Might be worth checking out Naughton and Coffield before Alir if you haven’t already.

    • Jimmy says:

      Yeah already have them both and needed another one. Also going with Byrne from the blues

      • Browncow says:

        Definitely a year to think outside the box. I don’t mind Byrne. Was in pretty good form before he did his knee and seemed to be able to find the ball. Food for thought.

    As a legitimate pod? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
    That is me officially out. I tried to stay on but jock had thought me enough to leave this community 'new'
    Farewell

  45. Surferboi says:

    Liking the podcasts fellas! Can we discuss Degoey? If he keeps his nose clean, surely a top 6 contender. Played very well at the end of last season and will get more time in the mids. Lock in my team of starts round 1

  46. Corey says:

    Am I Crazy?
    Forward Line
    Walters, Pertracca, Caddy, D.Smith, Ahern, Ryan,
    Garlett, Poholke

    • Derek says:

      That might be a serious case of MM.

      I don’t mind the occasional midpricer, but I much prefer the Fallen Premium type midpricer than the Gut-feeling one.

      Was Walters ever “premium”?

    • Russty_ says:

      Hi Corey, just say no to Caddy mate..he's too up and down..mostly down.
      I'd punt Ahern too, Fritsch might be a better option.

    • DunNuthin says:

      Not crazy corey somebody has to lose

  47. Derek says:

    The more I change my team, the more Guns n rookie it is becoming.

    Only have 2 midpricers in team, Shaw D3 and Devon F4. Although Some would argue they are both premiums!

    JOM and Armitage, Barlow, Coniglio and Lycett are other Midpricers who have been in and out of my team.

    I’ve not had a good history with Midpricers unless they have been true Fallen Premium. Shaw fits that category well. Armitage and Coniglio are close to fallen premiums and should be considered at their prices. Devon I’m not sure about, he is a popular pick but yet to reach a premium status. If a good rookie option appears in the forward line he could make way for Armitage or Coniglio in the guts.

    Ryder still there but the Round 10 bye still hurts my head. Cox at F5 might be a solution with a DPP at R3.

    Current Team.

    Laird, Lloyd, Shaw, Coffied, Doedee, Finlayson. (Mirra, Mihocek)

    Dangerfield, Dusty, Fyfe, TMitch, MCrouch, Brayshaw, Barry, Banfield (Kelly, Spargo, Holman)

    Ryder, Gawn (Cameron)

    Franklin, Heeney, Billings, Devon Smith, Christensen, Venables (Ryan, Garlett)

    • Big G says:

      Big call with Ryder. Nice forward line – how sold on Devon Smith are you? Personally I love going big (6 premos) in the midfield because I know that is where the points come from but I like how you have 5 great premo mids.
      .

      • Derek says:

        Not a big fan of Devon. Liked a few games he played at GWS last year but then would go missing.

    • dontblushbaby says:

      Derek, mate ,you weren't going to start with TMitch ,what changed your mind ? also no Barlow – you were big on him ?
      Personally I liked your other team that you posted elsewhere where you had a definite 13 keepers , not sure about Lloyd,Shaw ect will be top 6.
      Please don't take offence as I value you your commentary on everything Supercoach
      PS – l'll post my team shortly and I will welcome you reply , Cheers and Good Luck

      • Derek says:

        I had JOM from the start, thinking he would be taking points from TMitch. Didn’t see enough out of JOM to keep him in my team or to suggest he will affect TMitch.

        Lloyd is probably my least favourite choice. He is there in his value, probably should be $500k, but I’m not a fan. Hibberd is too expensive, Shaw might not be there after tomorrow’s game or he could be locked in

        Thanks for the feedback, appreciate it.

        • Derek says:

          Oliver did look good tonight with Gawn in ruck

          • dontblushbaby says:

            Agree on Oliver looking good but he gave away 4 free kicks and had 7 clangers with 19 bloody handballs ,but still had 98 SC Points, not sure if this is a coincidence with Max in the Ruck, please someone show some stats with Max n Oliver playing together ,Cheers

    • Russty_ says:

      Hey Derek, I like your squad, Petracca might be one to consider over Smith or even Heeney, Trac could have a big year, and he's not returning from anything bad, like injuries or bad form, looks like he's getting into his stride.
      Guns n Rookies or Midpriced madness can both end up flopping, the rookies have to play if you have a bunch of em..and score decently. I like a good balance somewhere in between GNR and Midpriced madness lol
      Mirra being 'rested' this week, not sure what that means.
      Will Barry, Banfield, Spargo, Venables and Garlett start round 1?…not sure, Garlett is injured, don't know much about the others.

  48. Defying_Madness says:

    Fritsch is looking very good, hopefully he gets named round 1 to lessen the lack of rookies in the forward line

  49. Brett says:

    Love playing sc but live in Sydney as a Collingwood supporter I’m on my pat interested in joining a league with people who share my enthusiasm..been playing for 4 years improving each year best finish 12000’s would love a start

  50. LUKE says:

    Greene + T Mitchell or Papley + Danger ???

    • Russty_ says:

      Find a way to get Greene and Danger if you are keen on Greene, expect a few suspensions during the season though.

      • dontblushbaby says:

        I believe you will see a different Tobias Greene this year, new 6 year contract and they have demanded leadership from him, he's in my team and I predict he will be the highest priced FWD this year ,

  51. LUKE says:

    Oliver + Hogan or Fyfe + Petracca ???

  52. dontblushbaby says:

    Yeo, Laird, Lloyd, Naughton, Dooday, Finlayson,Mihochek ,Mirra
    Danger, Dusty, TMitch, Kelly, Fyfe, Armo, Banfield, T.Kelly, Holman, Dow, Barry
    Gawn, Simpson, Cameron
    Heeney, Greene, Barlow, Smith, Christensen ,Fritsch, Garlett, Ryan

    Would love to have Coniglio, JOM, Hanley in my team, still might

    12 keepers IMO, obviously everything is subject to change

  53. dontblushbaby says:

    Tracca was good tonight, 104 SC points with 15 CP's , not in my current team ,but might be

  54. Nick says:

    What is everyone’s thoughts on Dawson as R2?

    • Derek says:

      If plays Round 1 I’d pick him ahead of Lycett who has Vardy and NicNat to compete with

      • D_I_L_D_O_R says:

        Even with Lobb due back in the first few rounds?

        • Derek says:

          Simpson looks like a ruck. Big strong and slow.

          Lobb looks like he will struggle with the weekly battle in the ruck.

          Could be Simpson gets first crack, with a midfield like GWS even i’d Manage a few hits to advantage, I can see him doing ok and holding the first ruck spot.

          Lycett will be second behind NicNat

  55. Bells says:

    Nice podcast fellas.
    Has NicNat had another setback? I thought he's due back in early rounds and Lycett surely goes out. Plan totally destroyed.

  56. David E says:

    Def – Laird, P.Hanley, Hibberd (Melb), O'Shea, Keefe , Doedee (Murray, Cummins)

  57. Bravis Toak says:

    Hey all, is there a Jock Reynolds Group code yet?

  58. Jim says:

    I’m struggling with rookies this year and really want to boost up the rankings this year
    Any help please guys?

    • GloryDays90 says:

      Keep and eye on the weekend because ones that play this week may be in the team come round 1,here are some to consider:

      Ruck: Cameron, English
      FWD: Garlett, Ryan, Fritsch, Rayner

  59. Gigs says:

    was the Simpson reference a cryptic message? #8?

  60. Will says:

    Petracca and Armo or Coniglio and Christensen?

  61. Northernsoul74 says:

    Only half time but Aaron Naughton looks locked for round 1 in the Dogs line up.

  62. Dean says:

    Hi community, just set up a competitive league, top 5% or above is ideal.
    Comment with your team name below if you have joined.

    League Code: 601986

    Good luck to all

  63. THE SALTSHAKER says:

    DEF: Laird, Hibberd, Sicily, Murray, Doedee, OShea (Finlayson, Naughton)

    MID: Danger* Titch, Dusty, Crouch, Fyfe, JOM, Armitage, Brayshaw (Banfield, T.Kelly, Barry)

  64. BundyBear says:

    Howdy people. If you would like to join a league then feel free to join mine. Code is 206330. Unlike some people on here, I dont ask that you are good or bad. Or if you ranked high last year. Who cares. We all try our best. So feel free to join . Thankyou

    • Russty_ says:

      Nice one Bundy, good attitude mate, maybe ask that peeps who join intend to finish the season though..nothing worse than flake outers.

      • BundyBear says:

        I do agree with that. Some people just seem to give up once it becomes harder. But then some people give up for different reasons. All we can hope for is that people dont give up. Yes it becomes more challenging as the season goes on. But hey, Thats what its all sbout.

  65. Blueth says:

    What is with the Lycett boner on this forum?
    IIRC Jock tried to convince us that this was a good idea a few years ago. Was not.
    Pick players that are good at footy.

  66. Tony says:

    Title should read Forget Lycett!!!!!

  67. belly button fluff says:

    is 11 keepers too few?

    • belly button fluff says:

      Well it's 10 actually. But I have Weitering, Coniglio, and D.Smith. I'm predicting one of these will also become a keeper.

  68. ChewyOnYa says:

    Would appreciate any and all the opinions i could get:

    Back: Laird, Hibberd, Savage, Naughton, Doedee, Murray, (Finlayson, Keefe)
    Mids: Dusty, Titch, Kelly, Zerrett, Fyfe, Cripps, Brayshaw, Barry (Banfield, Kelly, Holman)
    Ruck: Gawn, Lycett (Cameron)
    Forwads: Billings, Lambert, Smith, Sicily, Bel, Fritsch (Fogarty, Ryan)

    26K in the bank and need some help with biggest concerns over Lycett, Lambert and Bell

    Cheers Boys!

  69. Nate says:

    Might be time to move away from using the Jock Reynolds name guys…or maybe some new hosts? It's just not working. The page is still good for discussion but the podcast is horrendous. Just my opinion.
