The Standing Room | Round 7

Filed in Supercoach, Supercoach 2018 by on 05/05/2018 • views: 6174

Well community, Geelong v GWS was a bit pox wasn’t it?

Pull up a stool and grab a beer, let’s chat.

My summary of the night is as follows:

Kelly, Henry, Selwood = Good

Gongigliog = Bad

Dangerfield with a 108 = Cheap Soon But Injured Maybe?

Finlayson = Running Out Of Gas

 

Let’s talk trades and VC/C.

I’ll be taking Selwood’s 135 myself.

 

UPDATE: BONT OUT!!!

    DEF: Laird, Lloyd, Hibberd, Murray, Finlayson, Doedee

    (Murphy, Mirra)

    MID: Fyfe, Martin, Cripps, Titch, Danger, Kelly, CEY, Holman (Brayshaw, Banfield, Barry)

    R: Nic Nat, Gawn (English)

    F: Heeney, McLean, Sicily, Billings, Stephenson, Fritsch

    (Higgins, Ryan)

    plan on doing trade (1) Banfield > Zerrett

    Trade (2) OPTIONS Murphy > Cole

    Billings > Dev Smith

    Holman/brayshaw > Spargo

    Hold

    Open to ideas (320k bank)

  2. benodonohue says:

    I’ve got the VC on Mitchell for today and C on Gawn for Sunday’s game. If needed I will use olango ruck loop straight after hawks game depending on Mitchell performance today. Agree, Finlayson will be traded out of mine during the week..

    • Ahmad rubas says:

      Yeah seems like best thing to do titch into Gawn I wish hadn't put the VC on danger hopefully titch does well as my C

    • Derek says:

      Doing the same.

    • NoLanguage says:

      Titch 127. Gotta roll with big Max surely?

      • benodonohue says:

        Yeah mate, counting on Gawny tomorrow with the C… Hickey’s not far from hopeless so would expect atleast Titch’s 127 +

  3. theRealPod says:

    Henry was awesome last night. The new Harry Taylor?

    What to do with T Kelly. Eventually trade him to a top 8 mid or keep him as a M9. I'm thinking up to a nice pod after the bye.

    Dangerfield is definitely carrying a small injury or two. He is improving but with Gaz to return will he stay in the fwd line? If you haven't already got the man, he will be damn cheap soon.

    • Ahmad rubas says:

      I think Kelly should be M8 until your forwards defence and rucks are full premo

      • JEL says:

        Agreed, he will be staying as my M8 until the rest of the team is sorted.
        Hopefully he stays intact and doesn't get injured or have a slump.

  4. Mr.Brightside says:

    Higgins or Holman on field ?,can't loop already doing it with Henry

    • Ahmad rubas says:

      I'd back Holman in bounce back with 80+

    • Beezneez says:

      Have to make the same choice but throw Spargo and Crowden into the mix. Thinking Holman to bounce back – don't like the fact that he is named on the bench whereas Crowden is named on the ball. Spargo may be the one. as well. Wish I had a loop in the mids but I haven't. Don't think Holman will be tagging cos Bont is out.

  5. Eric_the_Red says:

    Should I trade buddy to mundy to make it a 5 premium forward line, or trade buddy to Bont to make it a 6 premium mid?

  6. elliot says:

    should've had the emergency on Langdon last night :/ stupidly had him on field with curnow on bench could have maybe loopholed fritsch :/

  7. Ahmad rubas says:

    Laird Hurley hibberd finlayson doedee cole (Murray coffield)
    Danger titch Fyfe Cripps coniglio telly banfield Holman (jelly dow brayshaw)
    Gawn Goldstein (olango)
    Heeney smith petracca billings Higgins Langdon (fritsch crowden)
    25 trades 76k
    Would the best move be double downgrade next week then bring in dusty round 9?

  8. Octa says:

    Any news on Petracca re his training test this morning?

  9. One Touch Wonder says:

    The SHARK MOVE has been made. Ultimate POD. Only in 1532 teams. Delayed start to the season. Last two scores of 95 and 127. Might go 150+ this week. Will easily be in the top 10 forwards for the year. Same price as Sicily but in better team and a better player.

    • Junka says:

      Yeh, who?

    • Troy says:

      Tom Lynch? lol not in a better team and not better than Sicily

      • Troy says:

        Also, who cares about top 10 forwards, you want the top 6 forwards and Tom Lynch won't even be in the top 10, let alone top 6

        • One Touch Wonder says:

          Thanks for your input Troy. Very insightful. It is Tom Lynch. Not the handsome one.

          • Phil says:

            Good luck OTW, I don't mind hearing your SHARKMOVE. Robbie Gray as a pod move, sounds obvious now but you did get a bit of backlash at the time.
            That's the thing about sharkmoves, they are not popular at the time otherwise everyone would do.it. good luck with Lynch, I ain't going there but I do rate him as a player

          • Troy says:

            How's that POD workin' for ya?

            • One Touch Wonder says:

              Great. I will let you know in 16 weeks. It is idiot comments like that Troy that not only show how heartless you are to fellow community members, but also indicates your lack of SuperCoach knowledge.

              • BadgerHoney7 says:

                risky moves are invaluable in supercoach, however in saying that tom lynch is not better than sicily at all. sicily has now scored 125,61,110,123,145. that's uber premium scoring and he is honestly in contention for AA.

  10. Rick says:

    Christensen – Sicily
    Bonner – Cole

    or

    Banfield – Merrett and combination of one of the above?

  11. Hoot says:

    With Bont out who from WBD will likely move field positions?

  12. Simon says:

    Bontempelli a late out- this is the week from hell

  13. Mike says:

    Hey guys! How should I use my 2 trades for this week? I have 300k leftover and 25 trades for the season.

    DEF: Laird Yeo Doedee Murray Naughton Richards (Mirra Murphy)
    MID: Titch Dusty Fyfe Bontempelli Cripps Parker Kelly* Finlayson* (Holman Banfield Coffield)
    RUCK: Gawn Nank (Olango)
    FWD: Heeney Smith Sicily Petracca Billings Fritsch (Langdon Guelfi)

  14. Marty says:

    vc and c – Mitchell into Gawn

  15. Marty says:

    Bombers v Hawks – only change is Henderson out for Cousins.

  16. sc tragic says:

    Supercoach the game that keeps on giving….

  17. Pete says:

    Hey guys take Selwood score 135?
    Or go Gawn, dusty, mitchel?

  18. TommyC99 says:

    I know I just asked this in the panic room, but Titch or Gawn C?

    • BloodyFranklin says:

      Gawn IMO.

    • Frozen water bomber says:

      I chose gawn too, but with my luck so far this week it wouldnt surprise me if he gets 50. Cogs and merrett killed me

  19. hedski says:

    Geez Crossley from the suns looks a willing type, and McLean is a tough bugger, that hit would have hurt.

  20. HumanBob says:

    Another nightmare round for me. Bont a late out, had gileslangdon onfield instead of Henry and now there's talk that Heeney might be a late scratching which will mean putting Garlett onfield

    • Russty_ says:

      What's the problem with Heeney Bob?

      • HumanBob says:

        Not sure Russty I heard on radio that somebody had seen him leaving a scan clinic in coogee.
        I haven't head anything more about it though

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      What’s the source for the Heeney news

    • BlueBaggerJosh says:

      Heeney late out will work in my favour lol, Henry emergency

    • Russty_ says:

      No late changes in the Swans, Heeney is playing.

  21. Russty_ says:

    Merrett off to a flyer on 7 points at quarter time, T-Mitch is being tagged by Heppell, not working too well so far haha

  22. Tyruddanaut says:

    Lift Merrett and Smith!!!
    Like, now

  23. HumanBob says:

    Wow big Max's last 3 against the saints make me worry about giving him the C. 96, 128, 56 ave only 93

    • Russty_ says:

      Just had a look at that 56 point game Bob, Gawn had 16 disposals, 19 hitouts, 5 frees against and 5 clangers, whilst Pederson was best on ground for the Dees.
      I wouldn't worry about Gawny.

  24. HumanBob says:

    What's gonna happen if Floggard goes to Flogily in the 2nd half? I'm predicting a massive black hole will open and all of the flogs in the crowd will be sucked into it along with anybody from Heraldsun

    • Russty_ says:

      Lol, I'm ok with that, as long as Sicily emerges once it's all sucked itself up it's own hole.

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      If it gets Sicily Supercoach points then sure

  25. Tyruddanaut says:

    Ooh… is OLango to Crossley in two weeks a bad trade?

    • HumanBob says:

      Not if he keeps this up. It'll give me the cash to turn Stef into Grundy and also great bye cover

  26. DavidSA says:

    Holman I'm glad you are making cash but damn you for looking like a 90+ score πŸ˜₯ On my bench lol

  27. INPieman says:

    Who had balls big enough to put Holman onfield

  28. HumanBob says:

    Bomber Hawks should be free-to-air. I got sucked in by the Newslimited/foxtel now scam and now have to pay $40 p/month to HS and $40 p/month to Foxtel if I want to watch the footy. If I hadn't signed up to heraldsuns' FREE foxtel now offer I'd be a lot better off. Sly HS mongrels made their subscription fee slightly less than VCAT case costs. So that if you want to standup for your rights to watch footy you'll be worse off.
    The make Goddard and Sicily look like 1st choice for your best man.

  29. allen says:

    anyone know what dangers price and b/e will be around this week?

  30. DavidSA says:

    How Stringer gets a game over Guelfi is beyond me
    He was let go by the Dogs for a reason

    • Defying_Madness says:

      Guelfi was rested, should be back next week

    • Crowboy94 says:

      Guelfi being out this week gave me a loop to get Henry's 115 πŸ™‚ so thanks Essendon haha

    • theRealPod says:

      What a dud he is. I can't believe he was once All Australian. He should be dropped to the magoos so the rookies can play.

  31. Tyruddanaut says:

    Naughton Loophole, check.

  32. allen says:

    who to field out of banfield, brayshaw or d.fogarty (ade)
    with botempelli out i need to put one on the field. my opponent in my cash laegue have similiar players and he has banfield on field. looking like i wont get up unless i take a risk.. thinking of putting brayshaw on field..

    or… will fogarty go alright against carlton?

  33. Defying_Madness says:

    Naughton to Bonner has to be one of my greatest trades 😭

  34. Holty01 says:

    Wow. Decided to put Roughy on the bench and keep fisher onfield to get henrys score. Looks like Roughy is finally going to score something respectible.

  35. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Traded in Macrae 😍, should've put the C on him, Backing Gawn to go nuts on Saints though.

    • BlueBaggerJosh says:

      My god he might hit the double ton

    • hedski says:

      He is killing it Josh, great trade in πŸ‘

    • DavidSA says:

      I brought in McLean happy I did he too is feasting on this joke of a club. Fwd line when buddy comes back

      Gray, Heeney, McLean, Mundy, Franklin

    • Rick Grimes says:

      I'm envious. It Was him or Cripps this week. Looks like I got it wrong. I was saving last mid spot for danger but might go Macrae instead.

      • BlueBaggerJosh says:

        I have both, don't think you could go wrong with either. Agree with your last point, I started Danger and kinda regretting it. Could've had an extra 100k in the team with same if not better scoring output,

  36. Defying_Madness says:

    Macrae the new danger? He is looking like a must have

  37. INPieman says:

    JOM you prick. But I'm happy with his replacement

  38. Ja191 says:

    hmmm do I take the mitchel vc if he makes 120 before the west coast game starts?

    • DavidSA says:

      Unless it's over 130 don't take it
      Gawn might not have great scores against Saints but he is red hot atm and the Saints are just a shadow compared to previous seasons.

      Gawn for me if Titch not 130+

    • Ahmad rubas says:

      I'd take it I think he will 130 by end of the match

    • Russty_ says:

      Just hit 120, better do it quick

    • INPieman says:

      126 with 2 mins to go is good enough

  39. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    Zerrett cannot handle a tag, i think this is a lesson i can take into the following seasons: NO MIDGETS (apart from Titch)

  40. HumanBob says:

    Zach Merrett might be the cheapest bombers Merrett in a week or two. Talk about an overated player he was shut down by a learner.
    Commiserations to anybody who forgot that players drop massive amounts in price because they're spuds not because theyre bargains. A fallen premo is just an overpriced spud by another name.

    Still a bit angry about getting scammed by Heraldscum so everybody is copping it from me, sorry. Not sorry to Merrett though

    • DavidSA says:

      Slow down
      Look at his 2 seasons b4 this one and take note he had one game knocked out early which was the real catalyst to his drop in price. I will acknowledge though he is not handeling the tag yet in his career

    • Crowboy94 says:

      He was shit because everyone traded him in this week! Like you Moron!

  41. hedski says:

    Shout out to my new recruits this week, well done Jelwood and Good Toby, 270 odd points between you, bloody great work fellas.

    • Russty_ says:

      Nice work hedski, reckon I'll be grabbing good Toby next week..or Joe Daniher, just kidding πŸ™‚

  42. Ben says:

    Pretty happy with trading Sicily in this week

    • Derek says:

      I bet you are. I’m just happy the Hawks beat the Bombers. The logical thing was to get him, but I just couldn’t. I Might regret it.

      Not as much as I regret trading TKelly to Dangerfield. Wouldn’t mind that one over.

      • Frozen water bomber says:

        Dont worry derek not the only one, i had him all week and 10 mins before last nights game reversed my trades, he had to go big because i did that

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Traded in Sicily as well. Bloody stoked. But my joy may be short lived IF he decides to have another brain explosion. Bloke is a gun when playing.

    • Westy says:

      Me too. Yep, he may be a flog, but he's our flog.

  43. TheGreatBozza says:

    Wow Macrae! Didn’t see such a high ceiling on him. Well done to all that jumped on

    What are the thoughts on taking Titchells 127? Gawn would be my C option. I’m going to take Holmans 67 over Banfield

    • Unagi_Don says:

      Didn't see the high ceiling on Macrae?! – starts the season with four out six matches 120, 142, 131, 141 and now the 189. An accumulator, good kick to handball ratio, high tackle numbers = the most SC-friendly combo. Still don't understand how he was a POD in 6% of teams after round 6.

      Gotta put it down to the Dogs being a minnow club, plus over-shadowed by the magnetism of the Bont.

      Also, lessons from the past would suggest be smart/conservative and take the 127 (that's what I'm doing). Gawn's 3-round average against the Saints is 93, and feel like the saints aren't just lie back and think of England tmrw – it's a big game for them.

      • TheGreatBozza says:

        Yep ill be the first to admit I got Macrae wrong. Will look to bring him in post bye, hopefully with his price coming back to 600k (hoping but doubtful at this point)

        I’m locking in Titch too. Solid captains score

  44. Jim_bob321 says:

    Thinking Gawn C but want a nice POD C….
    Cripps…. fyfe… laird.. simmo

  45. DavidSA says:

    WesthOFF tonight

    • theRealPod says:

      No surprises with Ryder back. Port should of rested Ryder for one more week, they were playing good footy with previous structure.

  46. TOPHAWK1 says:

    I am taking Titches VC score. 127 will do after trading in Sicily today. Not going to be greedy and risk Gawn having an off day. 400 points with Sicily debut score is gold. Time to consolidate.

  47. Justin says:

    Anyone like Cripps as Captain instead of keeping it on Titch or going Fyfe/Dusty????

    • Dermin8r says:

      I had him as my Captain last week, he is capable of some big scores

  48. Holty01 says:

    My decision making this week has been horrible. ZGL on field instead of Henry. Put Roughy on the bench to loop Henrys score and Roughy tons up. Then decided if Naughton scores 70 plus id have him on field instead of Cole. Oh well, at least Henry and Cole are making me money

    • Frozen water bomber says:

      I know he tonned up but why on earth do you have roughead? Not sure of his average but surely not your smartest move (not poking fun, i have billings)

      • Multi_ says:

        In fairness to Holly he was a good starting price and with him swinging through Ruck and mid should be averaging higher. I seriously considered him when picking my team

      • Holty01 says:

        He has been very underwhelming. He has been a very good sc scorer in the past. I was hoping he would get back to his best this year. Will hold however and hope he can repay the faith.

        • Frozen water bomber says:

          Yeah thats fair enough i guess, only reason i asked is because he burnt me badly last year!

  49. Tyruddanaut says:

    Naughton:
    52 HT
    75 FT

    Cole:
    57 HT

    I hope I didn’t do the wrong Loophole with Naughton

  50. John says:

    Do I keep Titch’s score or put the C on Gawn or Fyfe?

    • Ja191 says:

      i'd play it safe and take it John. I don't see gawn/fyfe scoring over 150 so you're only really gaining 40 points with chances of injury/off games

    • Baggy Pants says:

      Play it safe if Gawn or Fyfe score 150 you only gain 23 points. Its not 46 as some people think.

      • Beaver says:

        wrong bro

      • BadgerHoney7 says:

        so – the maths here, titch 127+ 127 = 254, gawn/fyfe 150+150 = 300.
        300-254 = 46
        am I right or am I right

        • redherringfc says:

          Try this

          127 +127+ 150 = 404
          150 + 150 + 127 = 427

          427-404 = 23

          You need to actually count your non captain’s score in your calculations.

          I think we might need a 3rd option.

          • Russty_ says:

            Nice one…so based on that, you'd definitely take titch's I think, unless you need a Hail Mary.

  51. Westy says:

    Brought in Sicily – woot.
    Brought in Merrett – no woot.
    Winners so far – Macrae, Sicily, Henry, T Kelly
    I'm even happy with Keeffe's first game.

  52. JugHead says:

    Who scores higher, Murray or Duman?

  53. Defying_Madness says:

    Happy I brought in Yeo this week, now I just need Simpson to go big as well

  54. BiggySc says:

    Had the vc on Macrae and worked some loophole magic with Jack Henry. Things are looking up this round! (Touch wood)

  55. Holty01 says:

    Ive been saying if Kennedy gets the tag by jacobs and scores 90 plus, im bringing him in. 27 at quarter time not bad at all

    • Russty_ says:

      Yeah he's killing it!, they're both over 50 with 10 mins to go in the second.

    • BlueBaggerJosh says:

      Kelly is my m8, what situation are you in Holty? Have 2 spots to fill? Don't think Kelly-JPK is worth the trade

      • HumanBob says:

        Loop them?

      • Holty01 says:

        Jpk will be my M7
        Danger will be my last upgrade if he starts improving. If all works out Kelly will stay M9
        Mids are at present
        Titch
        Cripps
        Oliver
        Pendles
        Cogs
        Fyfe

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      You'd think Parker has the Jacobs tag the way he is playing. Turning into a right royal SPUD.

    • HumanBob says:

      Yeah I think I might get him, I don't care if I have to loop him with Kelly. He's a better buy than Merrett

  56. Russty_ says:

    Looking ominous for Carlton, they are getting smoked on all lines.

    • HumanBob says:

      Poor Seedsman can't get a touch, on the bench on the few occasions the ball crosses half way.
      Jenkins on track for 190+

      • Russty_ says:

        Seed's goin ok, on 22, probably get his usual 90 or so..maybe the Blues feel a bit emasculated in their light grey onesy pyjamas.

        • HumanBob says:

          We are the Navy LightGrays the old dark navy light greys, classy song.
          Paddy Dow might pay off for anyone stingy enough to have kept him

          • Russty_ says:

            Hehe good song..yeah Dow's looking ok, 42000 coaches still have him too..unbelieveable

          • Ahmad rubas says:

            Yeah I'm one of those that have kept Dow. Going alright now with a breakeven of 14 and 50 with 66% gametime at half time. Could keep him till his bye

            • HumanBob says:

              I admire your confidence in him Ahmad, there's no doubting his ability but for supercoach he's amongst the worst midfield rookie options. If I'd had him I would have traded him down to Higgins for the DPP alone considering this years forward carnage

              • Ahmad rubas says:

                Yeah I agree that he isnt a good SuperCoach option only reason I started him was I panicked when brodie wasn't named in the Gold Coast squad and picked dow over Barry due to Carlton bias πŸ™‚ as for Higgins I brought him in for Murphy via coffield and was pleasantly surprised when mirra and guelfi got dropped/rested considering it seemed like he had the worst job security of the 3

                • HumanBob says:

                  Pleasant suprises in SC are few and far between mate make sure that you take advantage of it

        • HumanBob says:

          Heeney isn't doing much, perhaps the visit to the coogee clinic did happen?

    • HumanBob says:

      Kreuz will be really cheap after his bye at this rate. Might be able to swap him with Crossley

      • HumanBob says:

        Just checked. Kreuz averaging 73 b.e was 176 and he got 63. If he'd scored 74 he would have dropped 46k to 497k. If he ave 80 between now and his bye he'll be about 400k nut I reckon he'll get 1 (bombers NW) or maybe 2 more games @ 60-70 then be rested until after the week after the bye. Have a look for a week then and if he's better get him for sub 400k

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Carlton fighting hard Russty. Just 16 points down 4 minutes from half time.

      • Russty_ says:

        Yeah mate good to see, much better effort there in the second Q…hate boring games where one side gets flogged, like watching stkilda every week.

  57. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Parker……..mate you better produce something in the second half, or you will become my first sideways trade this season. Giving me the absolute shits!!!

    • dontblushbaby says:

      I was looking at him as a fallen premo to trade in, but a pass now

  58. nickgonzalez771 says:

    Hating myself for picking up Cripps instead of Macrae this week. The only two in my sight and I picked wrong πŸ™ having Zerrett and Whitfield doesn't help either!

  59. Neverweaken says:

    Cant take Titch VC score cos everyone played tonight. All good, I will loophole with Armitage. Who is playing!! Hope Gawn goes big tomorrow

  60. DavidSA says:

    thank goodness Heeney getting into it when it matters

  61. JugHead says:

    That boy Garlett. He shit……….

  62. Russty_ says:

    Bloody North Melbourne!…ruining my perfect tips, can't believe Sydney let that happen.

  63. DavidSA says:

    Crazy they let Titch go

  64. DavidSA says:

    think Macrae and Crouch are πŸ’ for pick ups

  65. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    shouldve traded in JPK over macrae! Will be about 470k anyone looking for a bargain buy, Macrae on the other hand might reach 700k the way he's going

  66. Crowboy94 says:

    JPK is definitely getting considered this week!

  67. prizza says:

    Hey trippers, should i take 66 for brayshaw ????? could mean a big win for me . Thx in advance

  68. Corey says:

    At what stage does Sicily become an option again

    • BlueBaggerJosh says:

      now, will probably be trading him in for finlayson

    • Unagi_Don says:

      ASAP

      He is an absolute gun. Great intercept mark, pretty much only disposes the ball by foot, great disp. efficiency and metres gained. Surely 2 early season suspensions force the tail between his legs and incentivises him to repress some of his floggy-ness. Fingers-f***in-crossed.

      I like him in my forward line given how inconsistent and injury prone the FWDs are this season.

    • theRealPod says:

      If his 145 yesterday hasn't convinced you nothing will.

    • HumanBob says:

      Last Thursday

  69. prizza says:

    He dickhead for life, can play though

  70. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    Took a chance brought him in this week

  71. neil demons delight says:

    crouch and JPK next week bang bang

  72. TBone_9 says:

    Could take a gamble by trading Howe in for Murray this week, but I would only be able to afford Oliver next week if he scored less than 118 points against St Kilda tommorow. Should I take this risk, in order to get to full premium quicker? Cheers lads

    • TheBenchmark25 says:

      If Howe and Oliver are in your plan I'd take the risk
      Worst case scenario is a double downgrade where there should be a few good rookies next week

    • theRealPod says:

      I'm getting Howe in over the next week or two and probably using Murray to do it, so yeah I like the move TBone.

      • TBone_9 says:

        Cheers guys, because the Collingwood game doesn’t start until the Melbourne game gets to about half time, I’ll wait until then to see how Clarry’s doing before I make my decision. Just can’t ignore Howe’s price and love the idea of only being 5 away from full premo!

        • TheGreatBozza says:

          I’m considering it too! I had toyed with Richards to Howe but thought I’d give Richards another shot. That has come back to bite me already!

          • TBone_9 says:

            Sorry to hear Bozza! Red Richards should still have some money to make I feel though. You looking at making any upgrades this coming week? Or just double downs?

            • TheGreatBozza says:

              If I grab Howe this week, I’ll pronably double down next given some decent rookie options

    • Russty_ says:

      I did that this week Tbone, Howe is very nicely priced and probably won't be so bargain priced again, and Murray's scores starting to get mediocre.

      • TBone_9 says:

        Yeah that’s kinda how I’m feeling Russty. Oliver is someone I missed out on last year though and as a Dees fan I can’t let him slip away from me this year too. He’s my number 1 priority right now (Macrae joint top priority now too)

        • Russty_ says:

          He's well priced at the moment, I paid full price for him ..like you said,keep an eye on him, if he's getting tagged and only 40-50 at half time you could be right, knowing Richo, he'll keep tagging him even though they're already losing by 10 goals.

  73. theRealPod says:

    After Macrae smashing it and a few league opponents with the VC on him, I need to strike back with a massive C score. Who do you think out of Gawn, Dusty, Fyfe or Oliver?

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Gawn

      • Derek says:

        Gawn is the one who can get you home

        What is weather like?

        • theRealPod says:

          Your right. Dusty not showing enough, Fyfe not playing home and Oliver not near his early form. Go you big bearded beautiful beast.

          Nice day here, light wind.

  74. David says:

    Is Macrae a must have this year?

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Starting to look that way. I am bringing in McLean next week after snaffling Sicily this week. After that, Macrae, Dusty, and Matt Crouch are probably the last 3 I will look at to complete the midfield. McLean and Macrae both have the handy bye as well.

      • David says:

        Yeah good plan. I think I'm gonna try to bring in Danger in the next couple of weeks and then for my final mid spot I will probably trade TK to Macrae after Macrae has had his bye.

    • Lazza says:

      With a third of the season gone, the odds are yes… not too many as consistent..

    • Derek says:

      I didn’t think he would be top 8, but he will be very close. Obviously he and McLean did very well without the Bont. I didn’t believe McLean would be this good, now he is expensive.

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        Still not too bad Derek. Had a BE of 122 going into this week. Probably still around $525K. I am grabbing him this week.

  75. KSinny says:

    Who to C out of Fyfe, Gawn, Oliver and Dusty??

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      I was going to grab Titch's VC score yesterday. But then I had a moment of wanton greed. I changed my mind and am going Gawn C against the Saints. Let's hope the supercoach gods got up on the right side of the bed this morning.

      • Derek says:

        I have a 139 VC cut off this year. Tmitch didn’t make it. I’ll go with Gawn. For some reason Max has struggled against Hickey. That wasn’t the 2018 version of Max.

        • TOPHAWK1 says:

          My cut off sits around 140 as well. I am comfortable Gawn can match Titches score of 127 and can IMO go a fair bit bigger if he is on song.

  76. Sam says:

    Is Billings to Mundy worth a trade? I have 24 trades left.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Its a sideways trade but Billings has been so bad I can understand you wanting to pull the trigger on him. I have Billings too. The thing is, Billings is young and fit. There is still a good possibility he will get better once he gets a bit of confidence back. Mundy is getting pretty long in the tooth and may faulter at some stage through either injury or a form slump. I think it is a risky play myself. Perhaps have another look at Billings today against the Dees, and see how Mundy handles the tiger heat in Melbourne this arvo mate. Just my take though.

      • theRealPod says:

        Agree with Hawk ☝. He's likely to hit form starting today.

  77. Steeeve says:

    Any worthwhile defensive downgrades looming? Finlayson looking plump and maybe Murray too. At least one should probably go down to a rookie

  78. Shaun says:

    Is holding on to toby green a dumb move he is listed as 1 to 2 weeks away.please need some help on this one cheers lads.

    • Derek says:

      Has to go.

    • theRealPod says:

      I would be concerned about him getting back to his best for awhile. Even when he returns needs to regain fitness. I'd get rid of him asap.

  79. Tiger says:

    Who to field? Fritsch or Higgins. Thanks.

    • WithAllDueRespect says:

      Same thought myself. Always decide by highest average. Fritsch's 90 last week increased his a bit. Higgins two goals in one enhanced his.

    • theRealPod says:

      I'd go the Fritz after last werk, he showed some talent. Higgins good too.. toss a coin

  80. Rocksta says:

    Talk anout a great debut! I brought Sicily into my team this week and am stoked.
    He may be a flog, but fk me can the boy play!
    Matt Crouch looks ripe for the picking next week

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Aint it grand! Did the same. Let's hope he can control his temper from here. McLean coming in this week. Happy days!

    • theRealPod says:

      His price before yesterday was what sealed it for me, an absolute bargain. We all need bench cover just in case, fingers crossed his focus is on his game.

      • Finnius says:

        There was a moment yesterday when a player fell on top of him and tried to wind him up, grabbing his collar and that. Sicily just smiled, pushed him off and rolled away. That showed to me where his mind is at now. He knows he is a great player and extremely important to the team, and I think that we will see a Sicily in the future that is much more focused on the game and performing well for his team.

        I hope so anyways!

    • SC_Donkey says:

      Yep! Dem Sicily punished me with his 145 of picking Mundy over him. Now I'm thinking if he's still worth bringing in next round or stick with my plan.

  81. Mr.Brightside says:

    Is Tracca definitely playing ? Need to put Higgins in if he’s out, I’m looping Henry in already ,Thanks

  82. BadgerHoney7 says:

    Cotchin late OUT

    • Tiger says:

      Really. Thought Richmond my use this as a chance to rest him. Hmmm had the C on Gawn but now Dusty a good chance of going big as I think he'll play more midfield. Thoughts?

      • theRealPod says:

        Good one Tiger. I had Dusty as C last week and he disappointed but had little mid time. Do we trust him? Nice day at the G could smash out a massive one.

    • theRealPod says:

      Dockers a chance without him. Fyfe and Neale could dominate the clearances with Sandy spoon feeding.

    • Neverweaken says:

      Thinking about it. Cant loophole Titch so Gawn, Fyfe or Dusty.

  83. Neverweaken says:

    Just bought Spargo in for Banfield. Swapped him with tracca in the mid. so if Tracca doesnt play i get Holmans score. And allows me to either double upgrade or one up one down next week.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      I like it. I have traded out Banfield for Spargo as well. If Petracca does miss, he goes on the mid bench and Spargo gets a run onfield in the forward line. I call it risk management. Hehe

    • Russty_ says:

      Hope Spargo goes well for ya…I'll be picking him up next week if he has a good one today πŸ™‚
      I have Hogan and Tracca, not sure if either will be late outs, so I did the same with Trac, into the mids swing with Higgins..fingers crossed.

  84. simon says:

    with Cotchin out do we think dusty c? had it on Gawn all week.. could also go Fyfe?

    • Russty_ says:

      I wouldn''t risk it..(Dusty).he's had 3 good scores and 3 crap ones.

  85. BrownlowBoy says:

    Banfield onfield over Higgins ahhhhhhh

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Why BB? It's a Tigers home game. Dockers were always going to find it tough. Hopefully Banfield will produce something better from here for you.

      • BrownlowBoy says:

        I did have him onfield, then I reversed my changes so he went back to the bench and I forgot to change him back. I realised with a couple of mins before lockout but thought Banfield might have done okay for himself since he'd be playing in the middle.

        • TOPHAWK1 says:

          I have done that by accident plenty of time too. Sometimes it actually works out better. But the way the Dockers are playing, perhaps not today.

    • Finnius says:

      looking like a great trade out at this stage.

      • BrownlowBoy says:

        I planned on trading him out next week anyway, just wish he didn't like a stain in my side as a goodbye.

  86. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Mundy on 4 SC at quarter time. This is why you do not touch long in the tooth players.

    • Russty_ says:

      I think he's almost ready to be embalmed

    • SC_Donkey says:

      This has to be my first bad decision for the yearπŸ˜”πŸ˜“Mundy over Sicily. Just want this round end now and look forward for next week.

  87. Octa says:

    Petracca and Fritsch both playing – whew!

  88. Russty_ says:

    St Kilda v Melbourne at Etihad, 3.20pm AEST

    NO LATE CHANGES

    FINAL INTERCHANGES
    St Kilda: J.Steele, H.Clark, D.Armitage, N.Coffield
    Melbourne: J.Harmes, C.Spargo, B.Vince, B.Fritsch

  89. BadgerHoney7 says:

    Dusty, you have been robbed their I tell you what – 4 behinds with 8 mins left in the last.

  90. INPieman says:

    What the hell is wrong with Dusty. Surely he's playing injured

  91. Tyruddanaut says:

    Dusty and Brayshaw, keep it up!
    Higgins slow down, show me why I chose Guelfi

  92. cashcows says:

    I messed up.
    Was supposed to change C from Martin to Gawn but forgot as I was playing chicken with my h2h who also had it on Martin.
    He's swapped to Gawn what I assume was last minute.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      When he saw that you had not changed the C from Martin to Gawn after the first bounce, he would have had over 2 hours to change it to Gawn. He can still change his mind now and put it on Oliver or Grundy etc if he had them.

      • cashcows says:

        Yeah, main takeaway was that he ain't rolling with martin and it's looking like it'll swing in his favour.
        richmond putting freo to the sword. Going to be a lot of richmond players with tons i reckon and I think martin will be at the bottom end of that, or he'll take the foot of the pedal.

        • Russty_ says:

          Jeez he better get his foot back on the pedal again soon, Freo could still win this game, and dusty's barely touched it in the third

  93. DavidSA says:

    Mundy 90 -130 against Richmond every game since 2014 and he is bending over saying no no no I don't need lube

  94. Steeeve says:

    In my cash league, my opponent was just behind going into today. Had the C on Fyfe. I had mine on Gawn. Checked again, and they changed theirs to Gawn at the last minute! Example 10000000 of why you shouldn't match captains when you're narrowly losing — back your judgement.

  95. Russty_ says:

    Jeez this one game is gonna sink my ship this week I think, I have Martin(56), Nank(50), Higgins(48) and Ryan(38) onfield, what a collectively spuddy performance at 3/4 time.

    • DavidSA says:

      Awful game

    • HunanBob says:

      You should have read the article on Hangovers at FSC earlier this year Russty. The stats proved that it would happen.
      I might be able to get Danger and Dusty for Fisher and Seedsman + $200k in a couple of weeks

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      I think I just lost all my league games from not having the C on Gawn.

      • hedski says:

        Yeah I got ya John. πŸ‘

        • JohnDJ59 says:

          Which is your team hedski ? I've decided being in ten leagues is too many to keep track of, should have kept to my eight max.

          • hedski says:

            Playing you in Magnificent 7 mate.

            • JohnDJ59 says:

              Just had a look, you are killing me hedski, not even close, at least I'm in with a chance against derek in 'The Rat Pack'

      • Russty_ says:

        Gotta trust your own bearded wonder John.

        • JohnDJ59 says:

          I had it on him till Titch's score reached 120, then just took the gamble, which hasn't paid off.

          • Defying_Madness says:

            Its only probably 20 points you made the right call

          • HumanBob says:

            I had it on Fyffe until earler today John so Max better at least double his halftime score

  96. Crowboy94 says:

    Spud Sunday is back! Freo and Richmond you are SH#T

  97. BrownlowBoy says:

    How has Jordan Lewis gained hair.

  98. DavidSA says:

    Rich v Freo game is so shit there is still 270 sc pts up for grabs with 10 mins left

  99. hedski says:

    Captain Maxy on fire early.

  100. Russty_ says:

    Gawn on 44 already!! WOW..go you bearded bugger.

    • DavidSA says:

      whats the record highest 3 round avg?

      151, 168, looking at 150+ again

  101. Defying_Madness says:

    I hate you Billings, oh well he will probably score 60 next week

    • hedski says:

      He'll be lucky to get 60 today DM, if I hadn't been plagued by injuries I would have necked him by now.

  102. Doc says:

    If someone gets a free paid to them (like Gawn just did) do they get points for the free for even if their team takes the advantage?

    • Russty_ says:

      Hey Doc, a free kick for = 4 points mate.

    • Derek says:

      You get points for how you get the ball (possession) and then how you get rid of it (disposal). A FA is a possession but not a disposal

  103. Ahmad rubas says:

    please gawn be gentle im sorry for backing in tom mitchell

  104. Blueth says:

    anyone NOT got the 'C' on Gawn?
    You'd be annoyed at this stage

    • Holty01 says:

      Thats a tough one to answer. The argument could be the reason they dont is because they picked their vc well. The others who have Gawn as their C are lucky because they made a poor choice with their vc selection. I had Titch so took his score. My opponent picked Danger who would of been disappointed with his score. Now he is probably thinking Danger is an absolute legend.

      • DavidSA says:

        I had VC on Titch but continued to C Gawn because of no risk of losing league game

  105. Holty01 says:

    Damn. Regretting Titch having a good game as ive taken the c off Gawn. Looks like he is about to go huge

  106. Finnius says:

    Who traded kane Lambert? 3 x 120s in the last 4 weeks. Billings looking good today as well. Just goes to show you have to back your premos in unless there is a clear role change (like Hibberd)

    • Ja191 says:

      billings will end up below 60 he's so frustrating to watch

    • nickgonzalez771 says:

      Traded Lambert for Dusty. Such regret, never thought I would have to say that!

    • HumanBob says:

      three 70's and a 49 in 7-games with an ave of 84.5 cost $475k Hopefully not too many started him
      I rated McLean, Sicily, Robinson, Acres, Boak, Petracca, Wallis and Taranto as better 'stepping stone' FWD/Mids than Laaaambeeert

    • Sheball says:

      Hibberd has been ok the last couple of weeks. (After I traded him out)…

  107. johnno2908 says:

    What happens with Fritsch’s mark and effective kick near end of first quarter. It’s not on the stat sheet at all?

    • DavidSA says:

      It will get fixed up
      Mundy was 44 pts at the end of the game but they gave him a free against when he got a contested mark and finished with 53 pts

  108. DavidSA says:

    I think one of Savage or Webster is a valid D6 option
    Saints are getting pounded all year

    • nickgonzalez771 says:

      I was definitely looking at Webster, plenty of opportunity for them to get their hands on the ball eh?

      • DavidSA says:

        Agree the Saints defence are under the pump every game I can't see Savage or Webster getting them -75 scores too often and will post 90+ consistently

  109. Russty_ says:

    Petracca you faacca and Fritsch you bitsch…move yer asses in the second half or one of you is gone next week..looking at you trac.

    • DavidSA says:

      Spargo looking nice

    • Mambo Rock says:

      Petracca looks like Tarzan, plays like Jane. He looks the goods, promises so much but he is not and won’t be a star. A bit like Watts. So disappointing. I am sick of giving him chances

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      The Dees probably shouldn't have played him this week Russty. I was expecting him to be a late out.

    • HumanBob says:

      I might get Hogan for my F6/7 looper with Buddy

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      Fritsch is still a good bench option though Russty, plus going on his 90 last week, he can still be trusted to put on the field if you have to due to injuries.

      • Russty_ says:

        Yeah John, he's going better than Mr sorefinger, what a letdown he's been..he's not quite there yet

  110. TOPHAWK1 says:

    My two usual spudsters are at it again. Billings and Petracca. One is going to McLean next week. Who will it be? The prick who scores the least SC points in the second half. Winner stays, loser condemned to the scrapheap. SIMPLE! Who says Supercoach is hard?

    • hedski says:

      Unfortunately I'll have to hold Billings because he's fit (and shit), if I can upgrade him after byes I will but not sure I'll have that luxury the way injuries are going.

    • Neverweaken says:

      Wish Petracca didnt play. Then i would get Holmans 70. Glad I picked up Spargo though

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        Got Spargo too. Just wish I had put Spargo on the field and Petracca on the bench. It is not looking good for that fraud. Barring a miraculous 4th quarter, he will be replaced by McLean next week. Had a gutful.

        • Russty_ says:

          I'm with ya there mate..sore finger or not, he shouldn't have played if he wasn't right, it's more about the way he's played, frees against, clangers, abusing the ump…general unco-ness.

    • Rocksta says:

      I’m with ya. Those 2 have done my head in all season and my patience is finally exhausted. I only started Tracca because of all the BS preseason about him playing midfield and being fotter than ever.
      I hate sideways trades but those 2 cost me points every week.
      Now just need to decide on which one goes

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        Unless he pull something out of the hat in the last quarter, Petracca will be sent packing. Then I just have Billings to deal with.

  111. Marty says:

    Billings has no confidence at the moment. I would be dropping him to the magoos until he shows more aggression on the ball.

  112. Steeeve says:

    Think I'd prefer a donut than a piddly score (and lost cash) from Petracca. He might become Ronke next week. Anyone think Robke will get a few more games?

    • Russty_ says:

      Have to wait and see until what happens when Buddy gets back Steve

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Keep an eye on that Flynn Appleby from Collingwood. Looking really good again today. He might be a straight switch for Lachie Murphy if he does not get picked next week.

      • Steeeve says:

        Hmm would love to add Appleby. Not sure if for Murphy or Finlayson…

  113. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    So happy Hibberd finally repaying the faith, Billings though, I have no words.

  114. DavidSA says:

    1st 57pts
    2nd 20 pts
    3rd 26 pts

    Gawn on 103 with 4th to go looks like it's not much more than Titch

  115. Defying_Madness says:

    Appleby and Spargo from the rookies next week. Might have to wait a week on Crouch because it doesn't look like there is much after this week

    • DavidSA says:

      If you have 17-18 keepers at this stage you be mad to not double downgrade to those 2 b4 the byes

      • Hayden says:

        I'd be waiting on Appleby, with Langdon set to come back. I'd think would be a straight swap.

  116. Ja191 says:

    hmm could hibberd be an upgrade option for someone like a finlayson? looks to be hitting some form

  117. Justin says:

    What to do with Savage… Real disappointment even when Saints are always getting smashed

    • DavidSA says:

      Umm keep him D6 mate he is not that bad at all this year 95 avg b4 this game and should still score 75-80

  118. HarryH says:

    Ok Billings is officially the worst player in the AFL right now

    • BrownlowBoy says:

      Going to Spargo next week.

      • Russty_ says:

        Spargo's a little ripper, will make heaps of cash.

        • TOPHAWK1 says:

          Did you get him this week Russty? I went early. Got to keep the cash making machine keep turning over. Might look at Appleby next week down back. Especially if Mirra and Murphy fail to make the cut again.

          • Russty_ says:

            Nah mate, thought I'd do the safe thing and wait, definitely coming in next week.
            Only prob now is I have Christensen and Petracca I want gone…who ever scores highest this week, stays haha

            • TOPHAWK1 says:

              Looks like Christensen dodges another bullet!! He wasnt so lucky in my team. Got punted for mr angry. Christensen has been OK without being spectacular. Petracca is getting the fark out of my side this week. I am sick of looking at THAT greasy head of his. LOL

              • Russty_ says:

                Hehe, I think he might be a bit of a flog too…owns 2 Staffies that fight, that's how the dumbass got bitten trying to break up the psycho mongrels.

              • Russty_ says:

                Wish I would've traded his spudly ass last week, has been in the 40's for ages, useless mutt.

            • belly button fluff says:

              wasn't going to get Gray till after his bye. But the way tracca is going it is probably ok to miss one week of Gray and take a rookie score. Tracca so shlop (shlop= Jewish runny sh*t fyi) I will prolly still score 3 times more over the next couple of weeks..

    • belly button fluff says:

      tracca is fighting him for that title.

  119. JohnDJ59 says:

    After a average weekend, still going to win four of my leagues, three in doubt and three lost, well done Russty and hedski you were two of my three loses.

    • Russty_ says:

      Hey John, our's isn't over yet mate, Pendles could still go big in the second half and you could overtake me.

    • hedski says:

      Cheers John I need some mojo, looking at @2300 which sadly will be my best score so far this year…..

      • JohnDJ59 says:

        Hey Russty and hedski, happy to help you guys out, my season is going from bad to worse, just about had it at the moment and one of my wins just turned into a one point lose due to Pendles getting injured, who I just brought in this week, sums up my season so far.

        • Russty_ says:

          That's harsh mate, just bad luck there, thought he was gonna be ok after he came back on but then he went off again, might have to punt him if he's out for 2 weeks plus.

          • JohnDJ59 says:

            I should have known better than to bring in one of the old men, AFL is no place for old men any more, need to stick with the younger guns.

  120. SC_Donkey says:

    Hibbo repaying the faithful, keep it up you good thing!!

    • Neverweaken says:

      Ha. Maybe get him and Zorko next week. Or him and JJK. If Zorko tons up again then get him

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Yes Doncs. Very pleased I kept him as well. At least he is one bloke which is coming good. Same cant be said for Petracca and Billings. Petracca is going for McLean. Sorry that you ended up going Mundy over Sicily this week. I just felt Sicily against the bombers after a week off was the way to go. His super low BE also tempted me. Long way to go mate. Sicily could have another brain snap next week.

      • SC_Donkey says:

        Can't pick em all right mate, definitely had to keep Hibbo there was no point of wasting a trade on him and the damage he did was too great. Just had to hope he was gonna turn it around seeing it was only 5 rounds in the season.

        Mundy over Sicily may only be this week, I'll just cope it in chin. Next round might be the way round at least i don't have to worry of Sicily loosing temper.

  121. Rocksta says:

    I need 67 off Stef Martin in the second half to crack 2300.
    I’ll take that given I had Petracca and Giles-Langdon on field. What do you reckon is par this week?

  122. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Let's see if he can back up next week. If he can, it will throw a few spanners into the works for coaches!!

    • Russty_ says:

      Whoops, didn't realise someone had replied, yeah think Zork needs to do it at least 2 weeks in a row.

  123. Finnius says:

    My league match is going down to the wire. Who wins – Howe + 35 points or Stephenson + Murray?

    • Russty_ says:

      Hoping Howe can lift a bit and knock out a big one in the second half too Finn.

  124. Defying_Madness says:

    Does the community think 2302 is above par? Also how have you guys gone this week?

    • Russty_ says:

      I'm still going DM but I think you've done well, reckon par might be about 2200-2250 this week.

    • Finnius says:

      I'm having a pretty big week this week DM. Projected 2385 but probably will end up 2350. If I fielded Henry It would be huge!! In most of my leagues 2225-2250 seems like a good score.

      • Russty_ says:

        Well done Finn, that's pretty huge for this week, you'll move up nicely with that score.

    • Holty01 says:

      I think ill be around that with missing about 100 points on the pine. Should be a reasonable score.

    • DavidSA says:

      2220 with Murray to go currently on 44 nearing the end of the 3rd

      Coniglio (yet we all have him) but Mundy killed me today

    • hedski says:

      Looking at 2300ish, first year player in my work cashy has cracked 2500, shouldn't have helped him with his rookies and how to loophole!

    • Crowboy94 says:

      Think 2250 to 2300 will be par. I'm looking at close to 2400. Shame Billings is so crap! And trading Lambert weeks ago and Hibberd is annoying…..

  125. Holty01 says:

    Damn. Pendles looked like going huge. Any news as to why he is on the bench?

    • Russty_ says:

      Something with his foot, but he's back on now so hopefully not serious.

  126. Tom says:

    What to do with Petracca and Billings??

  127. Finnius says:

    Pendles out! definitely an upgrade target in two weeks or so

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      That sums up my season right there, just brought Pendles in this week, going from bad to worse.

  128. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    Dont tell me zorko has actually remembered how to play footy?

    • Finnius says:

      Going hugeeeeeee. Imagine having traded him this week.

    • AuroraBorealis?! says:

      Zorko's ability was never in question, he just gets shut down by the tag.

      • Justin says:

        Definitely going Holman to Zorko

        • AuroraBorealis?! says:

          You can do with your team what you please Justin, but theres no point trading in a midfielder that will drop 40's every second game when they're tagged, regardless of value.

    • Crowboy94 says:

      No tag! Will go crap next week

      • Justin says:

        Who can tag from the doggies… look at his next few rounds before you talk… my gosh absolute wasteman

        • Crowboy94 says:

          See if he can play 3 good games in a row before jumping on TROLL

    • Holty01 says:

      Nice work Trigga you got me in our league game. Think it would of been an exciting match if Pendles played that 2nd half.

      • TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

        Yeah u sure would have mate.
        dusty is giving me the sh1ts.
        Was smashing it when i didnt have him as soon as i traded him in been mediocre at best.
        Happy with the banfield to spargo and naughton to sicily additions this week.
        Gawn is on another level. Just dominating.
        Viney back next week. HTA to go up even more.

        • Holty01 says:

          Yeah its exciting times for Gawn. Massive scoring potential. Dusty and Danger just seem to be going through the motions. Both clubs seem to be stronger and these 2 just dont seem to be relied upon as heavily

    • The Ranger says:

      Didi anyone get JPK and Zorko this week?!

  129. TOPHAWK1 says:

    What did Zorko have for breakfast this morning? Gee wizz. Playing an absolute blinder after 5 previous spud efforts. Is he back on the radar community? He will be cheap as mullet in a tackle shop.

    • Holty01 says:

      No tag on him. There will be 16 coaches ringing Buckley and giving him a blasting this week for allowing him to get back into form.

    • hedski says:

      Maybe some of those Cheat Bix ya got there TH? Ha ha, got over the line against ya this week bit I think your still on the right side of the ledger in our battles mate. πŸ‘πŸΊ

  130. Crowboy94 says:

    Watch everyone jump on Zorko this coming week.. he will get tagged again next week. Collingwood dont really tag.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Wont be looking at him at this stage. Let's see if he can back up next week against the Dogs in Melbourne.

      • The Ranger says:

        If he was still a DPP I'd be looking at him for the fwd line but he 'aint coming anywhere near my mids.

    • HumanBob says:

      Apparently Sidebum was tagging him today Crowboy. If he's found a way of breaking the tag it'd be a good trade in he only like $5

  131. DavidSA says:

    Murray played way better than the score he got

  132. Finnius says:

    I hate stephenson. If he doesn't kick that sealer I win my league game by about 5 points. AHHFHFHGNFPUJ:ALM>[email protected]!!#14$%&!

  133. Rocksta says:

    2285 this week. I reckon that’s about par.

  134. TOPHAWK1 says:

    So, what did we end up with folks?

    I finished on 2241.

    With Billings and Petracca spudding AGAIN.

    Will take it after ditching Christo for Sicily and going early on Spargo this round. I cant wait to pi-ss Tracca out of my team tonight! Weed out the spuds one by one.

    • Russty_ says:

      2230 with Petracca, Christensen and Ryan spudding it, among others everyone had, suspect par will be higher than that this week.

    • Crowboy94 says:

      2390, lost one of my leagues by 2 points.

      • gator59 says:

        Is that you in The JR Faihful Crowboy… If it is a great battle mate

        • Crowboy94 says:

          Yeah mate. First week I have had a really good score and you get me by 2 Haha! Was a great one. Both pretty unlucky to go under 2400!

          • gator59 says:

            yeah mate thought we were going to go well over 2400

            • Russty_ says:

              Well done Col..was gonna comment on that match, and how close it looked, you guys had the same prediction of 2421 at one stage.

              • gator59 says:

                Thanks Russty it was always going to be a tight one

                • Russty_ says:

                  Let us know how your ranking is going after this week clicks over mate.

                  • Crowboy94 says:

                    I'm sure Gator is doing better than me in ranking Haha I'm just sitting out of the top 50k atm…. not having a great year

                  • gator59 says:

                    Will do mate .. not sure where I'll end up mate due to the slow start THANKS TASSIE

                  • gator59 says:

                    Rank is now 4,130 Russty… Up 7,000 from last week.. Not to bad considering I was in the 30,000's a couple of weeks ago after the horrifying start thanks to the trip to Tassie

      • Russty_ says:

        Pretty hard done by losing by 2 and scoring 2390, well done this week.

    • DavidSA says:

      2296 Mundy 53 and Waiting on Franklin to come back pretty plz

    • Holty01 says:

      2260 with Roughy on the bench and Pendles going down. Could of been better but that is like most peoples weeks. Biggest wins were bringing in Sicily and going Cole over Duman

    • HumanBob says:

      2314 with Langdon-42, Fisher-55, Cogs-64, Bont late out and Buddy on Bench and I genuinely took the C off Fyffe this morning aargghh!

      • Russty_ says:

        Considering all that Bob, you did bloody well mate πŸ™‚

        • HumanBob says:

          Thanks Russty but even if Bont and Buddy had pkayed I would have still got Cogs and Fishers scores

    • Beezneez says:

      2315 3rd highest scorer in GNR league but got beaten by highest scorer who jumped about 5 places to me dropping 5 places. Got beaten by 3 by you last week Hawk and by Russty by 1 earlier. Bout time my luck changed in that league. Opponent having Selwood and Henry in the first match helped. So glad I traded Billings for McLean though.

    • BVB21 says:

      2402. Hoping to move into the top 100.

      Still have a few question marks on a few players.

      Savage is inconsistent

      Parker have been very disappointing after a strong start

      Nankervis not good enough for a keeper

      • Russty_ says:

        Savage is inconsistent, and also got hurt in the last TVC15, better keep an eye on that.

    • TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

      Pretty much a case of mccrae owners v non mccrae owners.
      Good and gr8 score.
      Mccrae v Dusty 100 pts.

      • Russty_ says:

        Well done smokin my butt this week Trigga…thought I had a chance there for awhile but turns out I was just dreamin lol

    • The Ranger says:

      2261. Witherden and Cogs turned a good week into an average one.
      Good week of fence painting ahead.

    • SloanedogBillionaire says:

      2418

    • Dogs says:

      Started today with a projected 2460, but some spudly scores had me finishing with 2304.

      • belly button fluff says:

        same as me dogs. today sucked and i think im going to fly to traccas house and bite his other nine fingers the prick.

    • hedski says:

      2299, got the bikkies in 9/10 leagues.

  135. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    2179, Holman to Spargo and Crowden to Mutch are my plans this week

  136. BadgerHoney7 says:

    2245 with Billings, Christensen, Zerrett.

  137. Maverick_ says:

    2346.
    hows that fare this round?

  138. Marty says:

    2363 (capt Gawn – after changing vc from MaCrae to Titch) hoping to move closer to the top 1000. Fyfe, MaCrae, Titch, McLean, Sicily thank you, Billings my concern. Spargo looks a likely edition to my team and Crouch.

    • Russty_ says:

      Good stuff Marty, nice score this week..should move you on and upwards nicely.

    • Rocksta says:

      Great Score. Well Done

    • Marty says:

      Cheers guys. Good rookie scores helps. Zerrett will annoy many like me who underperformed after bringing him in. Saints however annoys me more… no system and few skills. On the positive side, Nathan Freeman picked up 30+ possessions in the 2's.

    • gator59 says:

      Good stuff there Marty

  139. Not happy Sam says:

    Just traded out Zorko after three out of six rounds of 46 or less. He just scored 164.
    Fuuuaaaaaarkk I'm so mad right now

  140. BadgerHoney7 says:

    Billings only plays well when Saints are playing well – I was their at the game and I will be totally honest thought he played better than what his SuperCoach output displayed. Contested well and hunted (showed when he contested an easy mark of Gawns) and also had a bit of a role change, playing on the wing rarely seeing him in the fwd 50,

    • Marty says:

      Badger,
      I watched the game as a saints supporter and I thought he pulled out on one specific marking contest and skirted around packs, not in and under. He picked up a few late possessions but to me he is not a man in great form.

    • Russty_ says:

      He should play well again then in about 2023…after we sack our Coach and do a complete rebuild again.

      • BadgerHoney7 says:

        I agree we're in strife, no heart and really no pride. We go at the ball 50% everytime its on the ground. And that goal kicking, has anyone actually seen Dixon down at the club? If Freeman doesn't play soon I'll take nothing away from the 2018 season, had 31 on the wknd.

        • Russty_ says:

          It's a sad state of affairs Badger, as a long time supporter, I'm ashamed of what we're dishing up every week, and Richo just doesn't seem to be either able to make the hard decisions as to who needs to stay or go, or doesn't want to deal with the realities of how they're actually playing every week, a lot of the blame needs to go onto the recruiting staff.
          Radical solutions are sometimes required for dire situations, a complete change in the philosophy of all things that have been in the past.
          Who exactly is responsible for most of our players ending up as mediocre?…and how many players with big potential end up mediocre because they're trapped in that failure of a system?

        • Marty says:

          Dixon lol hasn't that worked a treat? Maybe we should get Matthew Richardson or Levis Casboult to be our next kicking coach.

  141. Slow Mobiles says:

    One for the Site Admin: Why don't all articles appear on the mobile site when they're first published to the desktop site? (EG, The Standing Room still doesn't show, at 7:30pm Sunday, on the mobile site).

    • Josh says:

      Have this problem too, reloading the page seems to fix it for me

    • Russty_ says:

      Gotta keep refreshing before you post anything Slow…it's just a quirk of the site. Actually click on home and then refresh.

  142. gator59 says:

    2392 this week.. Spewin I took the VC off McCrae and put it on Danger thinking it was going to be really wet in Ballarat….Oh well thems the breaks

    • Marty says:

      Nice score gator.

      • gator59 says:

        Cheers Marty… How did you fare mate

        • Marty says:

          End up 2361 after scaling.

          Overall 1141, some 500+ points behind the leader. As we know it's a long season…i think i was ranked 149 this time last year and capitulated to 800s.

          Luck plays a big part.

    • NEILDEMONSDELIGHT says:

      what happened to Tracca GAT did you dump him for McRAE masterstroke if you did

      • Russty_ says:

        Well done you too Neil, good score this week mate.

      • gator59 says:

        Had to get rid of him Neil.. A week out and not performing to what I thought he would mate

        • NEILDEMONSDELIGHT says:

          can the dees play your mob every week Hate to rub it in but Dixon has to go. Have they got any one coming on besides the hamstring kid

          • gator59 says:

            I don't think so neil … The cupboard is pretty bare down Moorabin way due to shocking draft picks over the years

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Brilliant score Gator. My 2239 was OK, but I need to crank it up to that 2400 type scores from here. Still have plenty of trades.

      • gator59 says:

        I'm sure you'll get there Toppa.. Just gotta pick the right ones which is pretty hard to do and hope they perform

  143. Pod says:

    Dont know why everyone is suprised by Zorkos score http://www.afl.com.au/news/2018-05-01/zorko-looks… Zorko this week can out and said this

  144. Bells says:

    Pretty happy I brought in McRae and put the C on him at the last minute. Won me a couple of match ups I otherwise wouldn't have gotten close in.

  145. BrownlowBoy says:

    Supercoach open

  146. Russty_ says:

    I actually made up 603 places this week with 2230 so par must've been about 2200, well done to all the blokes who went big this week, you must've moved up a bunch of spots.

  147. Sc_Wow says:

    29th overall
    Road to #1

    • Russty_ says:

      Nice one Wow, you're definitely a threat!…where's your protoge 666 lately?…you blokes both killed it this week.
      Both of you have been quiet this week, I reckon it's bragging time! hahaa

      • Sc_Wow says:

        We had a busy weekend.
        Always here for advice though, you go alright this week?

        • Russty_ says:

          Not particularly…2230, but still gained 603 spots and am sitting at 5929, not ideal but not terrible. won 6 out of 10 leagues.

      • SC_Sixty6 says:

        Yeh we here Russty! Into it this week. No bragging for me yet. Wow is due though!

    • BrownlowBoy says:

      Well down Wow! How many trades do you have left mate?

      • Sc_Wow says:

        In the position I’m in trading aggressively.
        I’ll be full premo before byes and plan to have 7 trades spare for injuries

        • BrownlowBoy says:

          Impressive.

        • TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

          Thats a must early if u r within a shot.
          Gotta go hard or go home.

        • English mf says:

          he asked how many trades have you got?

          • SC_Sixty6 says:

            He said 7 trades left for injuries…..does it matter if he has 29 or 16 trades? No. He will have 7 left for injuries.

            • just answer says:

              oh ok still not answering the question really is it?

              • Sc_Wow says:

                There is no point in answering that question, it’s irrelevant. People have to trade more than others depending on their position. I’ll be full premo and have 7 trades left. Except I’ll do it quicker than more conservative people

                • just answer says:

                  whatever, you must of traded twice every single week if you are that embarrassed to answer and keep dodging the question.

                  • Sc_Wow says:

                    You’re irrelevant too mate how about making a profile? You’re wrong in your assumption.
                    How’s your rank feel like sharing every detail of your team?

                    • just answer says:

                      i asked how many trades not your tax file number, didn't realise it was so personal. You are more than happy to share your supposed good rank yet you cannot reveal your team name or how many trades you have left. good luck when you run out of trades flog

                    • Sc_Wow says:

                      You don’t rate a rank of 29? Haha
                      As I said 7 trades after full premo. Have fun sitting on your trades and 20k rank… Flog πŸ‘πŸΌ

                    • SC_Sixty6 says:

                      His team name was been shared plenty of times. Listen!!!!!

    • TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

      Still walking wow.
      Gr8 effort.

    • Marty says:

      Awesome rank

    • Crowboy94 says:

      Well done mate! I went up 19 thousand spots on the weekend which has helped me get closer to beating my rank last year.

    • TheGreatBozza says:

      Nice work. I've been happy with my top 2000 ranking by playing it safe, but I think the aggressive approach has got you in a good position to attack #1

    • SC_Donkey says:

      Good JobπŸ‘ can't say much about where I'm at. Couple wrong choices, hopefully it's just this week. Fell back in the pack after this week hoovering around with top 6k rankings. Keep up the good work, hehe I will accept the defeat and your bragging rights when you finish top 10 at end of season.

      • SC_Sixty6 says:

        I'd say top 100 you should accept defeat. I did talk about our credentials in the first few days I arrived on this site full time. Understandably alot were haters and thought we were trolls but actions speak louder than words right? Walking the walk !

        • SC_Donkey says:

          πŸ˜…πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

          • SC_Sixty6 says:

            No need for tears Donkey. Just listen and learn for next year mate.

            • SC_Donkey says:

              HahahaπŸ˜…πŸ˜‚πŸ€£
              Like i saik b4 and say it again. Shut it until you won that $50K

              • SC_Sixty6 says:

                Abit aggressive Donkey. Will hold you to you conceding defeat when Wow finishes not only top 10 but takes it out.

                Ill shut it when you finish top 1000, being very generous! Although you will never even achieve that type of finish.

        You’re an angry little fella aren’t ya

      • Russty_ says:

        Try reading the initial post where it says Ranked 29th…and work backwards from there…genius, just in case you're a complete abusive moron, go to the rankings page and scroll down to position 29 lol.

  148. BadgerHoney7 says:

    Do I go Christensen to Gray other than trading Fritsch and Henry?

    • Russty_ says:

      Yeah reckon so Badger, Christensen is a piece of crap, was 70 at the end and got scaled down to 61….FK him!

      • BadgerHoney7 says:

        Yep, B/E of 73 whereas Henry is -15 and Fritsch is 6, much more worth, especially when both scored more them him – unfortunately still have Billings – hopefully he can turn it around for SuperCoach and Sainters fans!!

  149. Justin says:

    Is it worthwhile to trade in Macrae from Finlayson or to Mclean due to Macrae's 30 BE???
    Cheers community

  150. SC_Sixty6 says:

    2354 for the week
    762 overall.

    I miss SW Rooster.

    • Russty_ says:

      Well done 66, you improved over 1000 spots this week?…just let him go mate, he's probably realised by now his backline philosophy didn't work out too well.

      • SC_Sixty6 says:

        Yeh mate went up 1000 spots. Was spewing Walters went down with a 17 last week or I would have been inside 1k. But I'm here now so steady rise! 16 weeks to go top 100 here we come again!

    • SCblowie says:

      flog factor high here

      • Russty_ says:

        Yep, sure is, the flog is the one without the identity, who follows people around via internet forums with abuse.

  151. BrownlowBoy says:

    Is the general consensus to double downgrade this week?

    • KSinny says:

      A Downgrade and an Upgrade for me

    • BadgerHoney7 says:

      been doing two trades a week for the last couple or so, its just one of those years.

    • Finnius says:

      I'm painting the fence

    • Crowboy94 says:

      Yep double downgrade then bang bang next week.

      • Sc_Wow says:

        I’m going 1 up 1 down, same the week after. I’ll still have two premos in my team, but will have an extra week of premo scoring

        • Ahmad rubas says:

          Will there be any good rookies available in round 9? I haven't looked into it properly but general consensus seems to be that round 8 has some really strong rookies and the amount of debuts is slowing down

          • Sc_Wow says:

            There is still quite a lot of rookies debuting, and by that stage you don’t need them to have a huge role. Planning to feild an almost full premo side by that stage

            • Ahmad rubas says:

              fair enough good luck and hope you keep rising up the rankings

    • Russty_ says:

      I did a double douchebag fence paint..lol, Chistensen and Petracca out for Spargo and Mclean.

    • redherringfc says:

      One up, one down this week.

      But I do need to check who’s coming through next week to make sure I can repeat it next week as well.

  152. Westy says:

    2325 this week. Very happy with that.

    • Russty_ says:

      Noice effort Westy, solid score.

      • Westy says:

        Thanks Russty, up from approx. 8,000 to approx. 4,300.

        • Russty_ says:

          Better than me…I'm hanging around in the top 6000 but not improving much lately….gotta chop some heads off haha

  153. BoltonsBlues says:

    Trac to Flogly and Coffield to Spargo this week, time to start painting my fence to keepers.
    No more trades till the byes, hopefully Ryan, Lloyd and Fisher can increase their scoring output from now on.
    Doedee, Finlayson and Murray all have achieveable BEs, they should be good until the byes
    TKelly looking very good to keep his spot in most teams until the end of the year, kid is a jet no doubt

  154. BadgerHoney7 says:

    need a couple of mid/fwd rookies to come through this week, freeman and ahern pls.

  155. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    Holman to Oliver and either Parker to M.Crouch (i hate sideways trading but i want Crouch in my side and if i were to keep parker i'd have 5 mids with a rd 14 bye) or Finlayson down to Appleby. Which option do you guys suggest? What trades is everyone making this week?

  156. Rocksta says:

    Ended up with 2383 in the end. As I thought, that score was around par, as I only improved 15 places in the rankings to 201 overall. Tracca and having Giles-Langdon on field killed me this week.Need a big one next week to try and sneak into the top 150.
    Good luck to all next week.

    • BadgerHoney7 says:

      i tell ya what i could deal with some 2383 scores here and there

    • Rocksta says:

      Sorry guys, mean’t to say 2283. That was around par as only improved 15 places in overall rankings. 2383 would have me well and truly within the top 100.

      • Russty_ says:

        That's actually well above par Rocksta, I scored 2230 and improved 600 odd spots, it all depends on where you are currently as to what par is or not…it's not a definite, it's dependant on where you stand, the higher your'e ranked, the harder it is to move up.

        • Rocksta says:

          Cheers Russty. On a positive note, there’s bugger all between 201 and the top 100. I have Tracca and Billings though which is a large problem. I sat Billings on the bench to get Henry’s score.
          Wanted to bring in Crouch next week but the mid rookies are doing okay ( I have Higgins and Spargo). May upgrade Finlayson to Yeo instead.

  157. Willymack1234 says:

    Either go holman to Mutch and brayshaw to crouch or Holman to Mutch and Finlayson to Sicily, thoughts?

  158. Defying_Madness says:

    Anyone know the breakevens of Danger and Crouch? Cheers

  159. Tyruddanaut says:

    Few questions…

    Is JPK the real deal? Or is it better to get Dusty in a few weeks to finish my mids?

    Same thing with Howe? Is he worth it?

    Are there any value options for Forwards this round? Or future rounds?

    • Defying_Madness says:

      Last year I had the choice of a bottomed out Hanners vs a 500k Dusty. Take a guess which one I chose and how it turned out. Lock in Dusty he will turn it around

    • TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

      I really like wood had him in my presrason team.

      He is alot like curnow and grabbed his chance with both hands on the weekend

      Has a great set of hands.

      Will give him.another week could be a sneaky f6.

    • redherringfc says:

      I got talked out of jpk last week and ended up getting oliver.

      While disappointed I missed his 152, I don’t see him being a top 8 mid over the rest of the year.

      I’ve gone Crouch this week. Last 2 mid spots are for Dusty when his price bottoms out and Mitchell after his bye.

      I haven’t looked into Howe, but I’ll consider him when upgrading my backs.

      As for your 3rd question, Buddy should become good value in a few weeks, especially if he has a quiet return game.

    • redherringfc says:

      jjk is 407k and projected to slide to around 360k in the coming weeks.

      He averaged in the 90’s last year and is capable of huge scores. If you want value then he might be the man.

    • TheGreatBozza says:

      I brought in Howe last week for Murray. While it was only a +20 odd points I'm still happy with the trade. I think he can definitely be a top 6 defender

    • r_calve says:

      for a forward go for sicily

  160. Davo says:

    Webster might be a popular trade in this week.

  161. Finnius says:

    Crouch v JPK… what is everyone going this week?

    • BoltonsBlues says:

      Neither and it’s a luxury or is it?
      Tictch, Dusty, Fyfe, Cripps, McCrae, Cogs, Zerret, TKelly
      Who can make way right now for one of them?

    • Marty says:

      Crouch

  162. Doc says:

    INPieman (or any other pie supporters) what's Appleby's job security like? Is he likely to hold his spot or should I look elsewhere for a downgrade?

    • The Ranger says:

      The Apple Boy has looked ok Doc but I would expect him to drop out when either Reid or Langdon come back.

  163. Crowboy94 says:

    What do people think of Mitch Robinson? And should we be closer to finishing MIDS or FWD first?

    • Marty says:

      Mids tend to score more so I always concentrate on them first. Depends where your needs lie though.

      • Crowboy94 says:

        Laird, Simpson, McGovern, Doedee, Murray, Naughton( Murphy, Duman)

        Danger, Titch, Cripps, Fyfe, Merrett, MaCrae, Kelly, Finlayson (Holman, Brayshaw, Barry)

        Heeney, McLean, Sicily, Billings, Fritsch, Henry ( Guelfi, Higgins)

        22 trades, 156k

        • BoltonsBlues says:

          Brayshaw down to Spargo
          Doedee/Murray/Naughton/Fristch up to a premo if I was you

          • Crowboy94 says:

            Finlayson has a huge break even though?

            • BoltonsBlues says:

              80 which he can achieve.
              They got pumped by a Cats team who needed to smash them to show they aren’t push overs like last week.
              He was swung forward where there were no goal kickers and the ball wasn’t going there, he won’t be a the main forward this week and could get his 80 odd be

        • redherringfc says:

          I’d look to bring in one more premo mid first, keeping Kelly on field. Then your mids are set, until one of your final upgrades.

        • Marty says:

          I would go Holman to Spargo, Finlayson to Crouch leaving you 216k for next week's trades.

    • Sc_Wow says:

      I’ve got 7 deep in mids, and with Kelly playing well you have to leave it at that.
      You should look to get a mid in but then really start to upgrade other lines quickly. Rookies have been scoring well to date but they will get tired.
      After this week of trading I’ll have 4 premo defenders (dodee and Naughton fielded) 7 premo mids (Kelly fielded) and 4 premo fwds. Rookie fwds have held their own this year. Everyone was pretty worried at the start of the season

  164. Fearthebeard says:

    Best rookies this week?

    Got spargo locked. Not sure who else?

    Appleby? Ronke? Munch?

    • Rocksta says:

      Good question. I have the same dilemma.
      Appleby had a few clangers tonight but showed a bit for the most part. I’ll probably go with him

      • TheGreatBozza says:

        I'd worry about Appleby's JS with Maynard & Langdon out of the side. I've loved the way Apples is playing but I think the others are just ahead of him

    • Lachie says:

      Ronke if named.

    • The Ranger says:

      At this stage of the season I place even more emphasis on JS and we'll all have differing opinions on that but for me it would be Mutch, Ronke, Appleby.

    • Marty says:

      Ronke

    • r_calve says:

      james worpel looks very good but didnt get much of a run in the second game, burt has better JS than mutch

  165. Crowboy94 says:

    Laird, Simpson, McGovern, Doedee, Murray, Naughton( Murphy, Duman) 

    Danger, Titch, Cripps, Fyfe, Merrett, MaCrae, Kelly, Finlayson (Holman, Brayshaw, Barry) 

    Heeney, McLean, Sicily, Billings, Fritsch, Henry ( Guelfi, Higgins) 

    22 trades, 156k

    Some help is needed guys. Not sure where to upgrade first….

    Probably need to cull finlayson and Holman

    • SC_Sixty6 says:

      Finlayson needs to go.

    • Defying_Madness says:

      Murray down to Ronke and Finlayson down to Spargo. Not looking like there will be many rookies in the future (could be proven wrong when the team sheets come out) so take advantage of the ones present while you can. Next week you can go bang and bring in whichever 2 premiums you like.

      • Crowboy94 says:

        Ill keep Murray for one more week. Downgrade Holman and Finlayson to Spargo and Ronke. Leaves me with 550k to go bang bang next week

        • Defying_Madness says:

          yeah that works as well, not sure what Murray's BE is as I traded him out last week. I will be making the same trades as you this week I think

          • Crowboy94 says:

            He has a BE of 63 which he should get tbh. Holman on the other hand may not get his which is also 63

            • Whatyasmokin says:

              I reckon Murray is done, hes made you 200k, and onky has one good score vs Carlton. Holmans 32 will be out of his calculations soon and if he gets another 70+ he will make more cash.

    • zerowins says:

      As painful as it is i would trade billings instead of finlayson. Billings has a breakeven of 122

  166. Daz says:

    In an interesting predicament, started with no danger, titch or dusty. All bout the sell high buy low, so last 2 weeks brought in zerrett n Selwood , based on my strategy I go JPK this week. Already got Fyfe, Cripps, conigs. I feel titch is must have but are danger and dusty must haves?both look underdone or perhaps a victim of 'forward time' there drop off I attribute to going from 60,000 rank to 7,000 in 3 weeks.

    • Dazzler says:

      I think you are kidding yourself.

    • Ahmad rubas says:

      I think dusty titch are defintely must have every week they do well that's 60% of the competition that is getting points that you aren't getting. Trust me I know how that feels didn't start with dusty or titch and only brought titch this week and still waiting for dusty to drop in price after north match. I think you can get away without danger for now but if he starts getting more midfield time he will he must have to. Zerret jelwood jpk may offer great value but your playing for points so value sometimes has to be sacrificed

  167. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Double downgrade (Holman-Spargo, Crowden-Mutch)
    Or
    Paint the fence (Holman-Spargo, Finlayson to Sicily)
    ?

  168. yaboyazza says:

    2113, sadly.

    Traded bont to dusty two weeks ago and he hasn't cracked the tonne since, was tossing up between him and macrae, safe to say I made the wrong decision.
    Didn't sell Billings and he served up a 58.
    Held Petracca through injury just for him to score 40.
    Lost to my arch rival by 45.

    Safe to say, not my greatest week.

    • Goat says:

      You have an arch rival? Wow – wheee can I get one of those?

    • Westy says:

      You got 100 points more out of Danger than Bont this week, so that's a partial win!

  169. Ahmad rubas says:

    So finlayson has a huge breakeven. What are people doing with him this week trading or
    Holding? I like the idea of keeping him a little longer due to his DPP but also don't want to leak cash so may have to cull him this week

    • Holty01 says:

      Trading. Couple of ok rookies on the bubble and some undervalued premiums. Great time to trade.

      • Ahmad rubas says:

        Yeah should probably trade him was hoping to keep him through the byes but looks to have peaked in price

    • Russty_ says:

      I think he's done Ahmad….was good while he lasted but has turned into a 60 every week guy. AKA….cash him in while he's still worth a pinch of shit.

      • Ahmad rubas says:

        Yeah his scoring is down compared to what it was so instead of holding till the byes probably best to cut him off at his highest price

        • Beezneez says:

          Looks like i will have to trade him out because of his price in order to get M Crouch or Oliver in 2 trades. I would have preferred someone else because I keep looking at his two tons and believe he is a capable player. Maybe he is going off the boil but his score would have been better on the weekend if his goal kicking had been better. Wouldn't surprise me if he tons up again but I'm happy having Murray, Naughton and Doedee atm. Hopefully, Appleby is named.. .

  170. Josh says:

    Not entirely sure what to do this week for the first time this season as far as trades go. Considering Holman down to K.Mutch and bringing in Danger next week for Kelly?

    Here's my team with 211K in the bank

    Laird, Yeo, Simpson, Sicily, Doedee, Finlayson (Richards, Murphy)

    Fyfe, Cripps, Mitchell, Martin, Oliver, Merrett, Kelly, L.Fogarty (Holman, Garlett, Barry)

    Gawn, Naitanui

    Gray, Heeney, McLean, Smith, Frisch, Guelfi (Giles-Langdon, Spargo)

  171. Crowboy94 says:

    Follow with others by getting in Gray or go with a POD like Robinson?

    • seen_burns says:

      Think Robinson has taken more of a Tom Rockliff role in the lions team, so he might actually be a good option?

    • Whatyasmokin says:

      Cant compare those two honestly. Gray after hus bye though.

  172. seen_burns says:

    Thoughts on Jack Darling, has been scoring well but is a key fwd.

  173. DavidSA says:

    Just to help the community see the rooks in compact form instead of constantly searching

    Ready

    Finlayson BE 86 (75 scores 5/7 100 scores 2)
    Fogarty BE 68 (75 scores 3/7 100 scores 0)
    Doedee BE 64 (75 scores 5/7 100 scores 2)
    Holman BE 63 (75 scores 4/7 100 scores 0)
    Murray BE 63 (75 scores 4/7 100 scores 0)
    Banfield BE 61 (75 scores 0/7)

    Not ready!

    Kelly BE 18 (75 scores 6/7 100 scores 4) gun
    Know who else is not ready…. MY MUM!

    • Defying_Madness says:

      Not sure if Holman or Banfield should be traded out first. Fremantle have the Saints at home so some of these freo rookies could have big games

      • DavidSA says:

        Just putting a list up there can't keep them all in race to full prem so added the 75 and 100 scores to scope who is worth holding and who is worth trading. It's all up to choice

      • Brady says:

        Holmans 33 will fall out very soon so provided he scores okay he doesnt exactly need to be traded yet.

    • Russty_ says:

      Cheers for the list Dave, you been watching regular show mate?..lol

  174. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Billings or Finlayson to Sicily?

    • Ja191 says:

      Billings, I see finlayson hitting his break even and billings scoring less than a rookie

    • INPieman says:

      Billing's is SC poison. Dispose of him immediately

  175. Gav says:

    Should I get Danger, Dusty, Macrae or Crouch in this week. Macrae has the low break even, Crouch is good value atm, or bite the bullet and get Danger or Dusty even though they have the higher break even.

    • redherringfc says:

      All 4 are going to be up at the pointy end come seasons end, so I’d say go with Crouch now as he is the cheapest of the 4 and the cheapest he’s going to be.

      Over the next couple of weeks look to bring in Danger and Dusty when you can afford them and idealy when they have bottomed out in price.

      Macrae is getting too expensive and will probably come back under 600k at some point.

      But my team is a pile of crap, so maybe my advice isn’t worth taking.

    • Brady says:

      Crouch projected to go up only 7k this week so dont stress you can get him next week if you have others to fix.

  176. allen says:

    hmmm.. double downgrade
    finlayson and banfield to spargo and ronke leaving 545K in the warchest to go bang bang next week

    or
    finlayson and banfield to titch and spurge leaving 81K..

    not looking like a heap of rookies coming through soon so unsure..

  177. KSinny says:

    Thoughts on Finlayson to Yeo and Billings to Ronke? Leaves me with $338k in the bank.

    • DavidSA says:

      Billings scoring like a rookie anyway so I think they are good trades

  178. Morry says:

    Banfield to Spargo and Holman to Kennedy or McLean? Not sure which?

  179. Andy says:

    Sicily, Yeo or Hurley this week?

  180. SC_Sixty6 says:

    If anyone held Kelly for some strange reason after my info was given out he should play this week!

    • redherringfc says:

      Ah, the bearer of good news.

      And yes, it was a strange reason why I’ve held him.

      At least he might end up being an excellent pod, as most serious players have nearly filled their mids.

    • SCblowie says:

      I did flog monster

  181. Brady says:

    Time to rack billings off I think.
    Who to upgrade him too though?
    Gray, Scicily or Mclean?

    • DavidSA says:

      Mclean out of those 3 his BE is 56 and will cost you 20-30k more if you wait 1 more week

  182. Will says:

    Are we holding Petracca?

    • redherringfc says:

      I am, hope he can hit some kind of form some time soon.

      I’ve got bigger fish to fry.

    • Whatyasmokin says:

      If I had him Id ditch him pronto.

  183. zerowins says:

    Whos a better target. Oliver or crouch

    • DavidSA says:

      Oliver more pts but how many 3,4,5,6 more a week?
      Crouch good value also and hits the 115-130 range every 2nd week when he gets going

      • The Ranger says:

        I think you'd want both eventually but Melb have a nice run of games coming up.

      • Beezneez says:

        I want both but Crouch represents better value and, for me, means using one less trade to get him in. Oliver may now have to be an injury trade in. My last post was deleted – should have used the word peeved (about not getting in Oliver last year) instead of the other word starting with p.

  184. DavidSA says:

    Liard, Sicily, Simpson, Hurn, Shaw, Murray

    Mitchell, Cripps, Martin, Jelwood, Oliver, Cogs, Kelly, Spargo

    Gawn, Palm Tree

    Gray, McLean, Heeney, Franklin, Mundy, Fritsch

    307k left
    Next week The Rat To mid premo swinging Higgins into fwd line.

    • DavidSA says:

      I would love to have Macrae but is it pts missed and if he goes back to 115 avg for rest of year <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="πŸ€”" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.4/svg/1f914.svg"&gt; His price will be insane after next week and by then the ship has set sail.

      I went Banfield to Spargo and Doedee to Hurn
      I can do Banfied to Spargo and Holman to Macrae but leaves me with hardly any cash left

    • The Ranger says:

      Looking good David.

  185. Steeeve says:

    I'm holding Finlayson one more week then will turn him into Simmo. Would have done it this week but my two trades will be used to bring in Spargo and Crouch. Hoping Finlayson can at least pump out a 70 — won't lose much cash that way.

  186. INPieman says:

    Your sperm would be worth a fortune on the open market

  187. Sc_Wow says:

    You get around crowboy

  188. NEIL DEMONS DELIGHT says:

    Spargo aside I don't see a lot of permanent rookies about Might be wise to upgrade to a better performing dearer option I will be going Murray and Doodee to either SIMMO or HOWE and COLE who was an excellent junior and good bench option later whereas a cheaper rookie wont be there NDD

    • DavidSA says:

      Yup it's drying up at this stage

    • INPieman says:

      The only decent rook in the immediate future is Spargo. Hence why I picked up Cole last week. Think he's got good JS. Will be interested to see if Eagles holds his spot

      • DavidSA says:

        Shuey down helps a bunch
        Yeo midfield Cole slots right into defence no problem

    • Holty01 says:

      Not a bad idea. That was my biggest concern last week with the defenders. If you didnt downgrade any of thos defenders to cole or duman, i think you will be in trouble unless you swap them for premos.

  189. Fearthebeard says:

    Who is the best defender besides laird guys?

    Tossing up Simpson yeo even flogily?

  190. Noah says:

    Should i option 1: trade banfield for spargo and finlayson to sicily?
    Option 2 banfield to spargo and billings to sicily or other?

    Jack Billings.. You make me sick!!

    • INPieman says:

      Feels good trading him. Get it done

      • Mystic_Mac says:

        Yep I have to agree Pieman. Enough is enough

        • INPieman says:

          Trade him to Spargo. At least he can score

          • Mystic_Mac says:

            Went early on Spargo last week which turned out okay. Going to trade hard now and roll the dice. Nothing to lose at this point haha!

  192. Doc says:

    Billings to Spargo and Finlayson to Yeo leaving $240k

    OR

    Finlayson to Ronke/Spargo via Sicily DPP and Holman to Spargo/Mutch leaving $538k in the bank to bring in Crouch/Dusty and Yeo/Simmo next week

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      I think we need to get the rookies as they present themselves, so the second option.Having said that I wouldn't blame you if you traded out Billings.

  193. nick says:

    If you had a chance to pick up any midfielder this week, who would it be?
    Currently have Danger, Dusty, Fyfe, Mitch, Cogs, Merrett, Kelly and Brayshaw

    • Ja191 says:

      macrae or matt crouch if you wanted someone cheaper

    • BrownlowBoy says:

      Oliver

    • SC_Donkey says:

      Currently have
      Danger, Titch, Oliver, Fyfe, Cripps and Pendle
      Like to get Macrea i think the boat has sailed away, so I'm taken Crouch this week and Dusty next or I'll just run with TKelly at M8 until his bye and see who are my option then for that last mid spot.

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      JPK, McLean, Gibbs, Redden, Crouch

    • r_calve says:

      wait another week and cogs will be cheap or get crouch

  194. BeenHereBefore says:

    Billings -> Spargo
    Finlayson -> Mclean

  195. Noah says:

    Should I

    option 1: trade banfield for spargo and billings for sicily

    option 2 banfield to spargo and finlayson to sicily/howe

    option 3 billings to spargo and finlayson to sicly/other

    • Tyruddanaut says:

      Finlayson has to go. Howe, Hurn and Sicily all look quality.
      If you do option 2 with Howe, we would have the same trades but I’ve already got Sicily so probably go for Sicily.

  196. Tyruddanaut says:

    NIC NAT BANNED!

    1 match suspension for carelessness

    • DavidSA says:

      Copping the donut I'm out of the running anyway after last 2 rounds

      • Tyruddanaut says:

        IM considering copping it, too. I can still do a double upgrade next week if I get a premium this week and I don’t like spare cash

      • SC_Sixty6 says:

        I think everyone should be getting on Twitter and abuse Michael Christian for being an absolute flog and no common sense bringing our game into disrepute.

        His Twitter is @Chrissto_21

        • Mr Pink says:

          Michael Christian is starting to lose credibility… suspends Nic-Nat for a rough push in the back… happily lets Steele Sidebottom go for a sling tackle on Fisher where he has arms pinned and hits his head on the turf… no concussion he says… ever hear of a delayed concussion muppet…?

    • Marty says:

      And Hogan didn't get fined for acting. Haha! I hear Neighbours has called him.

  197. SC_Sixty6 says:

    Eagle's WILL challenge NIC NAT ban. He can't get a week for that. A free kick, which is what was awarded is all that was needed. He wasn't concussed so the AFL need to grow a pair and stop being pu55ies!

    Get in the gym Amon you weak prick!

  198. DavidSA says:

    This new MRP is more twisted than ever
    So Hogan is cleared for staging because the replay vision shows head high force off the ball but Carlisle not even a fine. Hawkins facing 1 week for touching an umpires hand lmfao. Then there was Chad Cornes getting banned for 1 match πŸ˜‚

  199. pod says:

    WTF is the difference between Nic Nats rnd1 Tackle http://m.westcoasteagles.com.au/video/2018-03-25/… absolute discrase Dan Christian

    • pod says:

      I get the Sydney one wasn't in the back but he got suspended because of the head high contact not for in the back

  200. r_calve says:

    im double downgrading holman and billings, who should i bring in out of worpel, spargo and mutch

  201. Hayden says:

    This week I'm upgrading Finlayson – Simpson and Banfield – Spargo. Was planning to go Holman – M Crouch but M Crouch BE is still 96, and likely to drop again, whilst Finlayson will struggle to hit 86. Spargo will make bank.

    • DavidSA says:

      Matt Crouch last 3 against Port 126, 88, 139

      That 88 he scored was from 32 disposals 21 kicks 11 handballs 5 marks 5 tackles but his efficiency was bit down and 3 FA

    Hi JR Supercoach Community,
    Loving reading all the banter, and picking up tips. 1st year I have taken on SC, in a league with some mates big time bragging rights on the table. So far so good and am undefeated – thinking it could be luck, hence turning to the people that know for some advice.

    Team is below so far, would love some suggestions for next moves
    21 Trades $10K (spent the warchest on McLean/Sicily upgrade last week)

    Laird / Hurley / Sicily / Savage / Doedee / Murray (Naughton / Murphy)

    Danger / Titch / Dusty / Fyfe / Coniglio / J Lyons / T Kelly / Finlayson (Holman, Brayshaw, Barry)

    Gawn / Nankervis (Olango)

    Heeney / McLean / D Smith / Petracca / Fritsch / J Henry (Guelfi / Z Langdon)

    Happy to be agressive on trades for the next 2-3 weeks.
    Thinking the ones to cull at the moment would be J Lyons / Petracca / Finlayson / Murry / Doedee (in terms of from the field)

    I like the look of M Crouch, Macrae, Howe, Yeo, Robbie Gray to bring in at some point.

    Thinking M Crouch and Spargo this week.

    Any thoughts opinions appreciated.

    • DavidSA says:

      Bang on the money with your 2 trade in selections.
      Finlayson is ripe Holeman, Doedee and Murray are also on the curve.
      I would advise to keep 1 of Murray or Doedee for the long stretch if you can when you have 6 premo defenders. Will be handy bench cover.

      Question in advance is there something wrong with Lyons? I would make him last corrective after you have full 22 field premiums if you have to

      • BNich says:

        Thanks for the comments. I also agree with the Lyons comment, would likely be last on the block at the moment even though couple of off weeks, still has ability to get a decent score.
        I fall short by $2.6K with the Finlayson/Holeman to M Crouch/Spargo option.
        Don't think with the DPP I have, that there is another option to get that combo in this week. Going to have to give this some more thought

    • SCblowie says:

      R Gray groins good again. Playing high midfield minutes. Nothing wrong with M Crouch either both guns.

      • Russty_ says:

        Oh so you're splitting your time from being a complete abusive flog troll, and giving advice to guys on their teams?..Maybe pish off back to your playstation…and resume abusing people there for not being good enough in your online loser match.
