THE STANDING ROOM Round 8

I told you.

I told you all. Essendon would lose to Carlton.

It was always going to happen. We’re tripe. They’re out bogey side. They were always going to win.

And they did. They bloody well did. We’re hopeless. We’re lost. We’re devoid of soul. Much like my Supercoach team in years gone by… and the months to come, no doubt.

However – the weekend of Supercoach is all that matters now. Those of us whose teams don’t suck pretend it doesn’t matter, and we live vocariously through fantasy football.

In said fantasy football:

  • Sicily – has to be in the discussion as essential, regardless of how much of a flog he is.
  • BENJAMIN RONKE. Holy moly. Kicked Spargo to the kerb in terms of price rises.
  • Elliot Yeo looks essential down back for those who don’t have him.
  • Robert the Gray is Good At Football (trademark Lekdog Inc.)
  • Is The Showdown the best rivalry in footy?

I’m personally watching every single move made by Jack Macrae after good mate Jedders – who has ruined everything he touched this season – brought him in.

I am. I hate what I have become. But my side is loving it.

How are you travelling this round, community?

    Good old Stnading Room, rough day for Essendon supporters ay Patch?

  2. Russty_ says:

    Not sure what to make out of this week so far?…some blokes went awesome, some were complete Potatoes..typical week haha
    Essendon are good compared to St-Kilda this year Patchy.

  3. Crowboy94 says:

    Naughton gone… looks like a grand total of 1 from him this week..

  4. Demonlover84 says:

    Gonna be a rough week…at least captain Gawn and Oliver killing it make up slightly for poor returns from Titch and Zerret…as well as Trac, taking Spargo over Ronke and fielding Spargo over Fritsch, going Hurn over Yeo to save cash..😫😫😫

    Surely Zerret and Trac have to go??

    • StevoRivo says:

      I brought in Zerret last week. What a πŸ’© call. Straight to M9 pine. Same for Tracca. Awful.

    • AlbertonOval says:

      I rage traded Zerrett last week. I was trying to be patient but he left one too many floaters in my pool this season

    • b_sh3p says:

      Haha I had Ronke all week and followed the crowd last minute to bring in Spargo 😣 also had him on field and Fritsch on the pine. Thankfully got rid of Trac

  5. StevoRivo says:

    Some seriously rubbish scores in my team so far, mixed in with some goodies-

    Bad – Petrappa, Spargo, Doedee, Titch, Holman, Garlett;
    Good – Gawn (C), Cripps, Sicily, Cogs, Smith.

    Thinking par will be 2200. Lots of rooks heading to the slaughter yard now. Yes I went Spargo over Ronke also. πŸ™„

  6. BrownlowBoy says:

    Macrae killing it once again.

  7. BVB21 says:

    Projected 2480.

    Gawn captain, Oliver, Parker, Gray, Ronke, Yeo, Cripps, Simpson, Devon Smith, Simpson, Sicily scoring 100+

    141st overall so hoping to move inside top 50.

    Only problem is macrae going to score 200 and don’t have him lol

  8. Russty_ says:

    Here's some great news for Naughton owners….including me…

    Players who are actually named and in the starting 22 for any match AND score a 0 for any reason, will NOT be replaced by an emergency. Their 0 score will also have an effect on their value, being recorded as having played a game.

    Eeeh…I give up!

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      Hardly any of my opponents have him on the field like I do, another wipeout of a weekend, not worried about how many trades I have left now, wont be playing finals anyway.

  9. JohnDJ59 says:

    Already know what my trades will be next week. Doedee to Yeo and Naughton to Simmo. Might as well, my season is a bust anyway.

  10. Defying_Madness says:

    I will be going early on Phillips next week I think, he is the best of all the options

  11. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    What a second half by 50 shades!
    Pretty much single handlely won the game.
    McCrae on another level this year nearly tonned up at half time.
    Billings also on another level but not in a good way
    Big gawny taking it to the max and just destroying anyone is his way
    And the blues finally got to kruez to victory and sing the song after 263 days. I think there were more inside than outside the circle.
    Bombers bombed again in a world of pain.

  12. Defying_Madness says:

    Luke Ryan you bloody gun. Keep going son 76 at half time

  13. Lazza says:

    Took the easiest money ever pre-season .. mate bet the bombers would win the flag … I’m in fits of laughter, every freakin week, I think I won’t take his money due to the joy and 23 weeks of entertainment and gut busting.. Dogggies and Tigers set up so many fools ..

  14. KSinny says:

    was going pretty well until Naughton decided to get 1 and then get injured

  15. Daisy says:

    Ok, what's going on with Daisy…. new role down back? 4 tons in a row now.

    • Patch says:

      Please don't ask that Question – I don't want to have to answer it.

      Surely in the same boat as Deledio in being too injury prone to select

      • BlueBaggerJosh says:

        Lol I picked Deledio might as well add Thomas to the bench, Fritsch and Henry tons have saved my ass tho hopefully the old man is back this week

  16. HarryH says:

    Ok it's really easy to decide with Billings now….. he's gone down so much he's not worth trading. So he becomes F7. You just hold and leave him there in case of injury. Well done to those who saw the writing on the wall early and got rid of him. The positive (ha!) is he might play 22 games. (Ok I'm grasping at straws here).

  17. Tommo says:

    Where is the DELETE TEAM button?

  18. Defying_Madness says:

    Don't think I have gotten a single captain call correct since round 1. First time I went with Fyfe as well. Next week I am looking at Gawn for the first time as captain so a warning in advance beware community

  19. hedski says:

    Pretty happy with the big "O Mac" in for English, 80 points covers dog dog nicely (plus $160k in the kicker).
    God I hate Billings, would have traded him if Nic wasn't out.

  20. Derek says:

    Fritsch looked fantastic today. Played on the wing and was everywhere. I will happy have him st F4 ahead of Billings and Petracca.

  21. Russty_ says:

    Membrey, what a useless spud, couldn't kick a clutch Goal if his life depended on it.

    • Crowboy94 says:

      What are you looking at this week now mate? Been a complete disaster for me…

      • Russty_ says:

        Same here…maybe 2150 if I'm lucky, no thanks to Naughton's unfortunate 0

        • Crowboy94 says:

          I'll be lucky to get 2100… projected 2080 atm…. thankfully I have McLean, MaCrae and had Gawn as C

          • Russty_ says:

            Bit of a soul sucking week with that Naughton business…I had Ryan there finish well so maybe a bit better than expected, had Gawny C too, and a lot of guys had Fyfe this week, nice one getting Macrae, don't think I can afford him for awhile.

  22. BoltonsBlues says:

    JMac with the big C this week, I love that human
    Fristch done awesome, I caught some of the game and he looked to be spending a bit of time in the midfield, look for his scoring to stay consistent if so.

    And of course, my bloody blue baggers!!!!! Up the blue boys!!!!

  23. Patch says:

    1901 with Macrae C and Naughton onfield.

    Four players to go – Kelly, Henry, Murray and Dangerfield. Surely I get 300 from those four?

    • Russty_ says:

      Easy I reckon Patch, probably 350-ish, well done.

    • Finnius says:

      Up against you in the SC Elites league patch. Naughton out has given me a shot – C on Macrae was huge for you though. I need 373 from Higgins, Dusty, Jeremy Howe and Grundy to get up, as all of your uniques have played. Hopefully should get home and up around 2260-70.

      I think you are still on track for 2220-30 which is still a decent score this week.

      • Patch says:

        Formidable list of uniques… except for Dusty's 20-point first half! Still a chance if Jeza and Grundy fire but Dusty is laying a massive turd in the beds of owners mate!

    • Sc_Wow says:

      I’m around the 1888 mark with the same players as you to go with one difference, dusty vs Murray.
      I too had the naughty score, hope a few copped it

      • Defying_Madness says:

        Yeah I am in a similar position as well 1892 with Dusty, Grundy, Kelly and Henry to go. Didn't have Naughton but Finlay, Doedee and Spargo hurt me. Merret is killing me as well

      • Wedge says:

        Having naughton on the field feels as bad as trading in ronke

      • Jack says:

        Hi Wow. My captain scored 156 points this week. Now do you understand what I mean by having Titch VC doesn't matter. Anyway, good luck with your team….Hopefully you don't fall too many places with that score, there's gonna be some monsters

        • Sc_Wow says:

          Yeah if your original sentence had of made sense I wouldn’t of said anything.
          Sure I’ll still be well ahead of you champ πŸ‘πŸΌ

    • DANGER1VDUSTY2 says:

      Patch – Merrett and Petracca suck footballs!!!

  24. Steeeve says:

    Didn't trade in Ronke because I refused to go early on Fritsch. He repaid the faith today. Gawn and Oliver dominated again too.
    Aside from that this round is terrible for Supercoach but GO THE PEARRRRRRR

  25. Daniel says:

    Who wins this matchup?

    Dangerfield/Selwood +45 point lead
    VS
    Dusty/Nankervis/Henry

  26. DANGER1VDUSTY2 says:

    Any cheap rookies to bring in next week?

    0 from nicnat & 0 from naughton = game over man, game over!
    Petracca and Merrett suck footballs!

    In PREMO MID and someone cheap.
    Out any 2 of about 5 duds I have.

  27. TheGreatBozza says:

    Not having Macrae is gonna see my ranking drop. Billings and Naughton hurting too.

    The only positive this round was passing on upgrading this week (nearly brought in Crouch over Macrae) to bring in THE RONKE

    Got some aggressive trading over the byes to push towards the top

  28. Phil says:

    No worthwhile rookies to downgrade to next week, might be a good week for a sideways. Rory Lobb for anyone with Billings or Petracca?

  29. INPieman says:

    NOUGHTon lived up to his name. What a headache. And we are not exactly flush with trade down options. Maybe Lockie Keefe. Swing could be handy with Flogicily. Doedee & Finlayson have hit the rookie wall

    • TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

      Have a feeling murray could join the rookie wall club today.
      Gotta upgrade them but cant do them all at once.
      Who goes first?
      Thinking probably finlayson.
      One of them may get a rest next week so would make the decision for us.

    • neil DEMONS DELIGHT says:

      I am going early on PHIILLIPS and TOM MCDONALD for old time's sake. Leaves the rucks vulnerable with nank surely rested but will cop a doughnut .Structure more important

    • HarryH says:

      As is often the way, rookies all hit the wall at once. Naughton, Finlayson, Doedee all need to go and Murray probably not far behind. Meanwhile Billings can't get a kick in a cattleyard but for some reason I'm determined to keep him. As I see it, English to Crossley is a must next week, particularly for bye ruck coverage. So based on that, Naughton has to be the one to go next week and Finlayson may lose more cash but the benefit of Crossley outweighs a small loss for mine. Interested in people's thoughts on best back upgrade. Already have Laird and Sicily. My targets are either Webster, Yeo or Howe. Hurley just got a 66 so he can wait a couple of weeks as his price drops.

    • Patch says:

      Willl be heavily discussed on the pod, Pieman. Initial feeling is Doedee might have longer than Finlayson and Naughton but changes need to be made down back.

      • hedski says:

        I'll be watching Murray very closely today, will be doing a double upgrade, two of Finlayson, Doedee and Murray depending on what other carnage I have (and Billings, bloody Billings).

  30. neil DEMONS DELIGHT says:

    Hi Trigg I am the opposite. I Think Murray is the best of the trio and could go huge today. The woods gave up plenty for him. I really feel for the. Naughton owners I had Jelwood and Lloyd last years Don't mind being beaten by a better coach but that's tough as was NIC NAC cheers N D D

  31. gator59 says:

    Due to the lack of premo performing forwards I have put my faith in the rookies and is paying dividends atm

    Playing 3 on field the last 2 weeks and I don't think it's hurting any more than having billshit and pertrappa

    • StevoRivo says:

      Hi Gator. I would consider benching Petrappa & Bill πŸ’© while trying to upgrade the rooks before the byes. Park the loss on the pine. Look to the likes of Yeo, Simmo, Ryan, Webster. There are a lot of us in a similar position this weekend. The SC Gods are not happy…

      • gator59 says:

        Hi stevo.. Just saying what I have got on field …. I don't have Billshit and never will, flicked petrappa a few weeks ago
        With under performing premo fwds I'm happy to field 3 rookies atm that's getting the job done

  32. StevoRivo says:

    Struggling on 1455 with 6 to play. Took a risk punting NicNat to Grundy, but copped the Naughton donut 🍩.

    Hoping for 2100 with Dusty, Danger, Grundy, Lambert, Kelly & Murray to play.

    Carnage everywhere. What does everyone think will be par this week?

  33. Holty01 says:

    Go you mighty Blues. Premiers in 2027

  34. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Hi Community!

    Another Sunday morning rolls around and wolfing down those bacon and eggs and shaking my head at all the carnage thrown at me yesterday.

    Here we go: Naughton- donut, Billings-54, Doedee- 56 Zerrett- 79 Tmitch-72 Hibberd – 78 and Heeney- 78. Nank possibly rested would add yet another donut.

    1730 with Danger, Murray, Henry, Kelly, and (hopefully) Nank to play. If all the stars align will still end up with 2200. Amazing given the turds listed above. In fact, I am feeling pretty good about where things are heading. Traded in Oliver, Sicily, and McLean premos over the last 3 weeks. (Goodbye Petracca, Christensen, and Bonner). The new three premo amigos pumped out 110, 143, and 115 respectively this week. Traded in Spargo (early), Ronke, and Guelfi over that same period. The cash generation will continue unhindered.

    This week I am looking at: Bilings- OUT Keeffe- IN (Keeffe not setting world on fire but I like his rucking duties and should help his JS. Keeffe opens up swingset with Sicily).
    Naughton/Doedee- OUT Yeo IN.

    Those two trades would leave with 19 trades, with 4 gun premos replacing most liabilities in my team.

    Going into round 9 it would leave my side looking like this:

    BACK- Laird, Yeo, Sicily, Hibberd, Murray, Doedee (Mirra, Murphy)

    MID- Dangerfield, Fyfe, Tmitch, Oliver, Cripps, Parker, Zerrett, T Kelly (Spargo, Holman, Crowden)

    RUCK- Gawn, Nankervis (Olango)

    FORWARD- Heeney, McLean, D.Smith, Ronke, Henry, ZGL (Guelfi, Keeffe)

    It would leave me 6 short from being full premo. Still probably have to side trade one midfield premo (Zerrett) for Dusty and chase Macrae, get Hurley and Howe/Webster/Simmo to finish backline, and then get Gray, Hogan, and perhaps Buddy to finish the forward line.

    Still a lot of work to do, but not giving this 2018 SC caper away just yet! Cheers

    • neil DEMONS DELIGHT says:

      Hi toppa looks like you are going to need lots of coin Macrae ,hurley ,gray and Dusty are very expensive and Hogan buddy and Howe all over 500k almost 4 mill ..wow mate need a lot of fattening cows Good luck there.. I would love macrae dusty and gray but will settle for crouch walters and Tom McDonald Sure wont win it but might snag some leagues good luck mate (except today)

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        Thanks Neil. Yeah, I probably need rookies on steroids to be able to get all of those on my wish list, but hopefully will be able to snag some of them. Just have to be patient and hope for a few price drops. Hurley is a good example. He had a shocker yesterday with only 66 and already had a BE of 126. After 97 last week, his BE will probably be high again this week. With a bit of luck I will be able to grab him for around $510K in a few weeks.

        • DavidSA says:

          That's the spirit mate! I'm having a sh*t round too along with round 4 and 6 poor scores but next week I have Nic back and 2 premiums coming in. Will have 19 prems <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="🦈" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.4/svg/1f988.svg"&gt;

          • neil DEMONS DELIGHT says:

            maybe have a run yourself David couldn't do any worse than Billings. 19 is impressive

            • DavidSA says:

              I'm 5"11 Billings is 6"1 and looks like a midget on T.V lol
              Maybe I will be stuck in fwd pocket like him but I would show a lot more energy every contest

              • neil DEMONS DELIGHT says:

                I played local footy way back and a teammate got called up for STH MELBOURNE Lou Richards dubbed him Zorrow .Good looking rooster great scholar had everything but if you're there robby I married the best looker at our school and am still with her WHY NOT still think you're better than billings though David who next week? any chance

  35. Multi_ says:

    Naughton Jesus Christ

  36. SC_Sixty6 says:

    With NIC NAT being wrongfully suspended I was never going to take a donut. Nooooo way. If I had i would have copped 2 donuts this week. Bloody naughton!

  37. JugHead says:

    Final teams just listed for the Norf / Richmond game on the afl website. No late changes.
    Nank still playing. WHEW!

  38. DavidSA says:

    VC on Cogs who could have gone huge but I recall 2 FA in the first 90 seconds of the 2nd that killed him and went quiet because of it. Rolled Lady Luck on Hogan for C and he played like a lady in the first half. Eating my Nic donut

    Tried something different but it hardly works for the better

  39. Boris_Baconbeer says:

    What will be a good score and par this week I wonder?

  40. neil DEMONS DELIGHT says:

    Unless soldo was used as a goal post he didn't play against north resies..

  41. hedski says:

    Get a bloody kick Dusty.

  42. Keenbutclueless says:

    Brought in Mutch instead of Ronke because I wanted Spargo on the ground. Ended up with Langdon and Spargo on field for 99 points. Could have had Ronke and Fritsch on field for 218 points. I think after that game Mutch may lose his spot, just to rub salt into the wounds.
    I am projected to get 2218, which will be par. But feeling flat not to at least have had Fritsch on instead of Langdon. Shouldn’t allow SC to dictate my mood so much. But it is what it is.

    • Davo says:

      haha funny how much happier I feel when my supercoach side is doing well, also strange how you still go for your sc players against your own team that you are a member of, just can't do it out loud at the game live.

  43. Ja191 says:

    dependlebury late out

  44. Steeeve says:

    Dusty staying cheap (getting cheaper) will allow me to fix my backline which currently has Finlayson and Naughton on the field. Thanks Dusty!

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Absolutely brilliant. Jacobs will be out of the way now, and will be cherry ripe for the picking in a few weeks. I have the same problems down back as you. Have Naughton, Doedee, Murray, Mirra and Murphy. Thinking of going the double upgrade. Naughton and Doedee out and Tom McDonald and Jake Lloyd in.

  45. Patch says:

    Pendlebury OUT. Dusty on STUFF ALL with four minutes to play in the second. Sunday finds a way to screw us even with only two games

  46. TOPHAWK1 says:

    DUSTY? Are you OK mate? Hmmm, I think you have caught that bug that is going around. ……I think it's called Jacobitis. Can certainly knock you around. Look after yourself mate.

  47. Marty says:

    FF dusty 19 pts in one half.

  48. Marty says:

    I was 1998 with Dusty Higgins and Murray to go thinking I would be mid to late 2200s. Now much lower.

  49. Holty01 says:

    Mcgovern out made me have to use Naughton. Now Pendles out means i have to use Spargos score. It is a cruel game. Be very lucky to reach 2100 now

    • JugHead says:

      Yep. But this round is leaving turds across all lines. Will take a very good (or lucky) team to dodge all the bullets this week.

  50. DavidSA says:

    Remember when he used to be called Dustbin? We need you now in the last qtr!!!

  51. JugHead says:

    Will be interesting to see how much time Danger spends forward today with Gaz back.

  52. hedski says:

    Settling in with a coupla cans to watch cats v pies, good luck INP and Shake, should be a cracker.
    GO CATTAS

  53. redherringfc says:

    Need a few more of Dusty’s high fend offs to get pinged. If he stays around 50 I’m a chance in a couple of leagues.

  54. Defying_Madness says:

    Sorry grundy owners I went nic nat to grundy. I hate this game

  55. DavidSA says:

    The Rat robbed of an insane boundary line mark

  56. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    Useless as tits on a bull dusty or an ashtray on a motorbike.

    U have been pathetic last 4 weeks. Giving me an average of 88 since i brought you in for kelly.
    Man wish doc brown was here would love that trade again!!

    Nearly no longer supercoach relevant.
    Dusty is crusty.

    Capt cotch superb.

  57. Finnius says:

    So glad I started Hery over Ronke!11!!!1! Grundy having a shocker as well. Dusty and Higgins hopeless. Thought I had avoided most of the carnage this week but a shocking Sunday at the moment. Need Howe, Grundy and Murray to get 219 to win my cashie. Just like last week I thought that I would be easily home, but may be close with grundy on 25 at HT….

  58. JohnDJ59 says:

    My lowest score this season has been 2,026 in round 4, might be lucky to just beat it this weekend after Naughton went down and Pendles didn't get up for the game today, please let me know if any of you are going as bad.

  59. SC_Sixty6 says:

    You're welcome to the Grundy owners!

  60. Shake_n_Bake_ says:

    Think l might leave this game early! 1 goal in a half if footy is not what l payed up for. Noway out of the game but my sons under 10 soccer game this morning had more goals! P.s championship data robbing Selwood hes bog at the half.

  61. Montana man says:

    I find it interesting reading about ‘Good/bad’ luck regarding SC. The so called experts who don’t have bad luck with injuries, late outs etc claim that it is due to their superior initial selection and management. Someone even divided luck, selection and management into segments.
    You CANNOT do well if you have bad luck. Luck is at least 50% SC IMO.

    • HumanBob says:

      Closer to 75% luck for those in the top 25,000 at bye time

    • Boris_Baconbeer says:

      Yeah almost true except I picked wietering at the start of the year. That means i'm 100% shyte. I think for everyone else your quite correct. πŸ˜€

    • TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

      Ive said it a few times

      Lady luck she will have her say and play her part

    • Sc_Wow says:

      Yep I’m going to auto select my team next year and hope luck is on my side!!!! 75% luck? Give me a break

    • Derek says:

      There is an element of luck, especially with injuries to fit players who have no injury history.

      But even with that happening, in isolation it is bad luck for those who had Naughton on field this week, but over the course of the season there would be 30-50 injuries to players with no injury history. The law of averages say it will happen to everyone a few times every year. It evens itself out. It is how the good players prepare for this and how they then deal with it sets them apart.

      Some people believe they get hit harder than others, but that is usually because they have picked higher risk players.

      Everyone will have a few hard luck stories, it evens itself out over time. Don’t go looking for bad luck by getting injury and suspension risk players

    • prizza says:

      Without a doubt, wow has gone early with trades so we will see if that is skill or impatience.

      • Sc_Wow says:

        Gone early to get premos in. 4 off full premo

        • Rascal says:

          You obviously have been going through your trades so hopefully when you get more injuries you don’t run out of trades at round 20!

        • BVB21 says:

          Wow you have more patience then me mate.

          You give such great advice but no one listens and they just blame their bad luck lol.

          Sure it’s bad luck if Naughton goes down with a 0 (that happened to wow btw so he isn’t immune to bad luck)

          You need a little luck to win but if you don’t finish top 1% you need to look at what you are doing wrong.

          Listen to the top players like wow who give away great advice for free!

          • Sc_Wow says:

            Haha cheers glad some people can appreciate it.

            Reflects on your rank too mate, we will be the ‘lucky’ ones up the top come season end

            • Russty_ says:

              Reckon Luck plays some part but so also do wise starting choices, avoiding injury prone players, old farts, etc…we get 30 trades so a lot of the bad luck can be traded out of our sides, injuries are an unknown quantity though and can stuff anyone's week up…still, if you have trades left you can trade em out lol.

              • Boris_Baconbeer says:

                Hang on a little minute here guys/everyone. Firstly you do have to play well. But Like poker; black jack or any similar game you have to play right, and luck is a big factor as well. Second when we are dealing with statistics of 200 000 people or entries per year in the game, of course there is going to be a high probability that a few of that 200 000 will be lucky year after year and a few will be unlucky year after year. It would be very unusual for this not to happen. We could even expect this to happen with high probability if everyone did auto select at the start of every season for one person to be in the top 1% for a number of years. Flip a coin fifty times, I guarantee you will never flip heads then tails then heads then tails perfectly alternating through all fifty flips. Statistics show you would even be more likely to get two runs of five in a row each fifty flips.
                Once again I'm not saying anyone is a bad player, and it's all luck, or questioning IQs. Just don't upset the supercoach luck gods fellas or they will smite you. πŸ˜€

    • Wedge says:

      The most important part with injuries to players is how lucky you are when they strike. An injury early in the game costs you league wins and money where's an injury mid week or very late in the game isn't as costly and more manageable

  62. Defying_Madness says:

    Anyone bringing in Menegola next week? I think I will be, should have bottomed out

  63. SC_Sixty6 says:

    66 point qtr from Grundy! Ironic?

  64. sc tragic says:

    What is the problem with Dusty, he is an expensive spectator at the moment.

  65. BrownlowBoy says:

    Welcome back Dangerfield

  66. Finnius says:

    Scale Howe/Grundy up one point please champion data! Need it to beat Patch.

  67. neil DEMONS DELIGHT says:

    Not many here would have seen POLLY FARMER Those that have will notice RATUGALEA looks and plays like him Big arse and tucked in jumper Good if he plays as well HEDSKI might have seen him 1963 was his last year by memory

  68. Sc_Wow says:

    Dangerfield saving a week from hell. Can’t wait for trade time

  69. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    Any idea what par is this week? Ended up with only 2150 which is disappointing, like a lot of people the Naughton donut hurt me.

  70. TOPHAWK1 says:

    2169 this week. Won 8 out of 10 leagues. Starting to get rolling. A big congrats to Neil (Demon's Delight) who rolled me again after beating me a few weeks ago as well. 2325. Seriously good score mate! Won 2 of my match ups by 2 and 1 point respectively. Got lucky. Despite all the carnage, my side just manages to hang in. Time for two defensive premo upgrades this week. Cant bloody wait!

    • gator59 says:

      Great stuff Toppa,, I think you may have me to blame me a bit for NDD's score.. He rang me the other day and I talked him into getting Howe when he wanted to get Hurn…. A bloody good score from him though.. He would've creamed me this week too by 50 points

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        Thanks NOT Gator! Just kidding. Even had he had not listened to your great advice and gone for Hurn, I would still have been pumped. Good stuff on your 2275 this week too. Way above PAR.

        • gator59 says:

          Thanks mate,, your starting to put together a good side.. Just a bit stiff with Naughton

          • hedski says:

            Yeah ya got me by 200 odd Gator, my year from hell just keeps Rollin along.

            • gator59 says:

              You'll come good mate,, Have faith in what you're doing ……. LTI'S have decimated a lot of us… After a bad start and a good 3 weeks with aggressive trading I have come from 35,000 down to 1900 plus more upgrades this week to come

              We just gotta bite the bullet and trade who you think will get the job done.. Plus get rid of who is not performing

              YOU CAN DO IT HEDSKI.. I have faith in you mate

              • hedski says:

                Double upgrade this week Gator, Doedee and Finlayson out, Simmo and Howe in.
                Still have Billings to deal with but I'll have to hold him for now, probably loop him with a rookie. πŸ‘

    • neil DEMONS DELIGHT says:

      Thanks loads mate won 10 leagues like last week always good to snare a win against quality opposition as I told shake TOMMY McDonald this week Your teams gonna look amazing next week like GATOR's its all about getting them at the right price

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        I hear ya! I am going Tom Mc Donald as an upgrade instead of Keeffe. Sicily swing secured and another premo up forward. He will be the cheaper version of Hogan!!

    • Russty_ says:

      Well done hawk, that's a decent score this week considering all the let downs and zeros, did you move up a bit in the ranks?

  71. Holty01 says:

    Surprisingly hit 2084 with mcgovern and Pendles out and having to take Naughton and Spargo as their replacements. This will hurt the overall rank i would think.
    Going to be upgrading plenty the next few weeks

  72. Shake_n_Bake_ says:

    The good is played Derek in 3 leagues this weekend!! Even with Naughtons doughnut just got over the line. Didn’t realise he doesn’t have Kelly, did you move him on Derek? Neil to good and Tophawk just to good. And Hedski Cats well done πŸ‘

    • Defying_Madness says:

      He moved him on to Danger a couple weeks back

      • Derek says:

        brought in Danger a few weeks ago as my 8th premium mid, couldn’t leave Kelly on bench. I think Kelly out scored Danger the next 3 weeks. If had time over I would have waited.

        Having Billings and Petracca instead of McLean and Sicily has cost me dearly.

        I thought Lycett might have done bit better and got me home. Well played, deserved it with the Naughton donut

        • Shake_n_Bake_ says:

          I brought in Danger two weeks ago could av waited aswell but did get $109k discount. Both Billings and tracca killing us both Derek. I think this week l might go early on Phillips.

          • Defying_Madness says:

            I reckon a lot will go early on Phillips. Don't need him to make much cash just need him to play. Not sure what I should be doing about Danger. Kelly is probably the way to getting him in I might wait another week then get him.

            • smart as s says:

              from what i saw today, danger's score was inflated and undeserved. He looks still injured when trying to force himself into some contests. Remember when he ghost tackled nobody and fell on his face. Thinks he got a stat for it lol.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Thanks Shake. Its been a while since I tasted victory against you. Derek moved T Kelly on about 3 weeks ago and missed picking up Sicily and McLean as well.

    • hedski says:

      Cheers Shake, happy with cats, my sc team killing me tho.

  73. Steeeve says:

    I have 370k. Enough to upgrade Naughton and Finlayson I wonder? Really hope so…

    • redherringfc says:

      You’ll want some bargains.

      Guessing Naughton will drop to around 270 and Finlayson about 340, so you’ll probably have less than a million.

      I’m thinking of holding Naughton for a week as he won’t lose any money, unlike 80% of my team.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Definately. Naughton will still be $295K as his BE was only 28, and Finlayson will drop a little to $345K. As such, you will have over $1 million to spend on 2 premos. ($500K per premo). Enjoy!!

    • ATeam12345 says:

      get in Touhey and an uber

  74. neil DEMONS DELIGHT says:

    Yeah thanks SHAKE Don't get much opportunity to say it but a good score 2325 I think and like last week 10 league wins Love to score in Triggs and YOURS mate CAZALY —- TOMMY MC DONALD this week just to get away from the norm also he looks good cheers NDD

    • gator59 says:

      Great score Neil.. I bet you're happy I talked you into getting Howe over Hurn

      • neil DEMONS DELIGHT says:

        YES and for talking me out of BILLINGS. Help me out again gator The great TOM MCDONALD comes in this week I expect criticism particularly with now 8 dees but they are all good SPARGO and Fritsch are cows BUT WHO can tell me GAWN OLIVER HOGAN HIBBERD and the great tommy mc are not good enough. but mate I want to bring a saint in The young lad forget his name but he looked good very good , actually the team looked good just cant kick cheers mate you had a big score too mate 2nd in a row

        • gator59 says:

          Cheers mate.. I see T Mac as a valid pick.. I know it seems a lot of dees but if they are performing as good as they are I don't see a problem… You may have a bad week through their bye round though……… Ed Phillips is the saint you are talking about.. He looked good but you know my view on saints players… He may make you some cash though which would come in very handy for an upgrade

      • neil DEMONS DELIGHT says:

        thanks mate and for BILLINGS TOO

    • Lazza says:

      Excellent score neil… congrats, took me down too (The Rat Pack) though I was happy with my 2191 given Naughty, Merrett and having Walters and Buddy on the bench..

      • neil DEMONS DELIGHT says:

        Sorry lazza I have walters too kept him /.Was going to trade him to macrae 2 weeks back but the kid can play so got CRIPPS instead GREAT LEAGUE the rat pack be good to win that one also cheers mate NDD

        • Lazza says:

          A very good league indeed .. I bought Macrae last week for Finlayson … I think I started my trading too late to keep the pace .. seems you and others are a week or two ahead of me getting the premos on the pitch. .. still have 23 trades, so hopefully during the bye weeks I can pull it back somewhat … only can afford one premo trade-up this week (Yeo or Simpson) so may go early on Phillips to ensure a premo trade-up each week.

      • neil DEMONS DELIGHT says:

        thanks LAZZA I moved Buddy on But kept Walters

    • Russty_ says:

      Nice score this week Neil amongst all the carnage, I still managed 2189, with Naughton 0, won 9 out of 10 leagues and moved up 1670 spots, so pretty happy considering.

  75. JugHead says:

    Has Danger just told us he is ready to be selected this week for those that still dont have him?

  76. smart as s says:

    Gaff has ruined my most disposal multis for some weeks now. This guy keeps getting the pill but his score doesnt reflect that. Free agent year end player, me think its time to get him in and include him in all my multis from now on.

  77. SC_Sixty_6 says:

    Nothing worse then having Naughton on the field. His b/e will skyrocket and unfortunately cost me my cash league game

  78. Defying_Madness says:

    Wow 2219 was top 2% this week. Lots of people struggled it looks like

  79. FearTheBeard says:

    Webster or Simpson?

  80. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Webster, Tmac or Hurn?

  81. Defying_Madness says:

    Grundy into Gawn sounds juicy for captaincy this week

  82. DavidSA says:

    Ratugolea > Dangerfield via (swing Higgins)
    Doedee > Yeo
    Feels great

  83. Tyruddanaut says:

    Naughton –> Mundy
    Doedee –> Webster

    Double up!

  84. DavidSA says:

    Laird, Sicily, Simpson, Yeo, Shaw, Murray
    Mitchell, Oliver, Cripps, Danger, Selwood, Martin, Coniglio, Kelly
    Gawn, Nic
    Gray, McLean, Heeney, Hogan, Mundy, Fritsch

    Hurley Fyfe top of the shopping list

  85. Sc_Wow says:

    36th overall now.
    Road to #1 continues

    Great to see some solid rankings from some JR community members

  86. BrownlowBoy says:

    Dayne Zorko a 98% chance to reach his BE of -9 on footywire!

  87. TommyC99 says:

    Wanting to pick up Simmo or Crouch as they have probably bottomed out. Doing this means i have to go early on a rookie

    Crouch and Cummings (already have Keeffe)
    or
    Simmo and Phillips

    Both these trades leave me with very minimal cash left over

  88. Ahmad rubas says:

    How bad was naughton injury? Is he likely to get up this week or is he a must trade out

  89. Noah says:

    Who are some good forward upgrades this week?

    • Russty_ says:

      Tom McDonald looks pretty good, still nicely priced, depends on what your fwd line is now though I guess.

      • Whatyasmokin says:

        Decent value I suppose, but still a risk not to be a top forward, one big score vs gold coast is all on his resume this year.

        McClean is actually not bad value give or take 20-50k and looks certain to be top 6, Heeney bottoming out soon, Sicily, Robbie Gray and that leaves two spots.

        Key position forwards look risky this year more than ever. I will have Hogan seeing as I started with him and hes been pretty consistent.

        Leaves one spot Id call Menegolas. Only way id go with mcdonald would be a def/fwd swingset with sicily.

    • Defying_Madness says:

      Menegola

  90. Jimmy says:

    L.Keefe's JS? i need to trade naughton out now i guess

    • HumanBob says:

      He's virtually valueless Jimmy.
      A super aggressive points chasing strategy would be to make 2 trades
      1.- get either sicily or Tmac up fron't
      2. trade naughton move sicily/tmac back shift a mid/fwd into fwd and get either philips or a dpp rookie looper

      Obviously I'm assuming a bank balance of 200k+ and a fat fwd rook

  91. Laird Lad Donuts says:

    Looking to upgrade my defence this week, my last spot upgrade is locked in by Laird (pretty unreal my team name is Laird Lad Donuts and I don't even have the kid in my team!)
    So far this is my Defence
    Sicily, Yeo, Hurley, Savage, Murray, Naughton

    Out of Howe and Simmo, who is the better option?

    • Russty_ says:

      I brought Howe in last week and am pretty happy about it, I got him for 463 k and his 3 round average is now 121.3.

      • Laird Lad Donuts says:

        Cheery rusty, Really stuck between the 2, thinking Simmo for more consistency and Howe for a bit higher ceiling. Still finding it difficult to split the 2

  92. HumanBob says:

    I've made 10 trades which is about 4-less than usual for this stage πŸ™‚
    Pre price increase
    1 Brayshaw > Garlett- for xtra trade flexi +$
    2 Zork > Cogs For points and $
    3 McCartin > Fisher – For points and $
    Post 1st price increase
    4 Ryan > Henry -injury forced
    5 Holman > Oliver – planned
    6 Billings > McLean – correction
    7 Petracca > Sicily – Correction
    8 Hibberd > Yeo – Correction
    9 Banfield > Spargo – $
    10 Murray > Ronke via sicily swing

    None of these have burnt me so I'm planning 2 more this week.
    At this early stage I've decided on Doedee > Webster and Henry > Darling.
    I did want to get TMac but the $ increase for both Webster and Darling will be significantly more than the $ increase for TMAC. so I will cash in Finlayson and Garlett for TMac and Philips next week.

    I'm alerting the community of my pending actions because my Karma is good this year and I recently boosted the my Karma credits by running over 3 rabbits and a feral cat. This boost to my Karma credits is almost guaranteed to result in Darling and Webster finishing top-5 in their position from this point on.

    To you coaches that have heaps of bad luck with your trades/upgrades "Don't be jumping on this one" all your negative Karma balance will be enough to tip the scales against me. Maybe kill a feral animal or two before making anymore trades

    • Russty_ says:

      If the 3 Rabbits and a Ferral Cat were having an inter-species orgy at the time then I'd say your Karma's ok because that's just wrong, those furry little preverts deserved to be splaterred πŸ™‚

      • HumanBob says:

        hahaha No Russty they were not sexpots they were all Lone Wolf terrorists, exterminated thanks to a privately funded resistance

  93. Defying_Madness says:

    Anyone looking at their team and wondering where the cash is going to come from?

    I am in desperate need of Mirra, Murphy and Guelfi getting games soon

  94. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Doedee' time is up, Finlayson will be gone next week
    Crowden and Doedee out-Phillips and T mac in
    Or
    Henry and Doedee out- Phillips and Yeo in

    • Defying_Madness says:

      Get the Yo Yo in before it bounces back up in price. The bye also helps

      • BlueBaggerJosh says:

        Hmm could swing Sicily back and get McLean, who do you think is more of a priority? I'm leaning towards McLean with a lower be than Yeo. Could also get Gray but I'm waiting until after the bye to cash in Fritsch for him.

  95. Marty says:

    2218 with a poor choice of captain (again – sighs) instead of Gawn or McCrae. Just over 800 overall and starting to rise. Haven't got Danger yet but have to decide whether the defence needs work or time to get Danger. Who would've thought after round 8 I still wouldn't have Danger.

  96. StevoRivo says:

    Rage trade brewing….

    Naughton & Petrappa to..

    1. Webster & Ronke
    2. McLean & Appleby
    3. Simmo & Ronke

  97. Jordan says:

    Brayshaw and Holman to zorko and Ainsworth( and get danger next week by trading Tim Kelly)
    Or
    Banfield and Holman to danger and ed Phillips (and not be able to get another mid premo next week)?

    Thoughts?

  98. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    Banfield > Phillips and Doedee > Simpson for me this week. What trades are we all planning?

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      Doedee > Yeo and Naughton > Simpson.

      • Russty_ says:

        Noice John, doing the same but with Doodoo, and Finshiteson.

        • Defying_Madness says:

          I brought those two in a couple of weeks ago for Murray and Billings I think. Solid trades for both of you

          • Russty_ says:

            Cheers DM, well done..thought Finlayson was worth hanging on to but with mid to low 60's scores the last 3 weeks, he's done and needs to go now, pretty solid trades there from you this week, Phillips has been a nice surprise, could give you a good leg up on the field.

            • Defying_Madness says:

              Crossing my fingers that I have no injuries over the next few weeks as most of my trades are planned out. Danger next Hurley the week after and then Gray. Starting to get worried about how I will be funding these trades though. With regards to Finlayson I still own him but with the lack of downgrade options I think I will just have to hold him until I am ready to get Hurley. He will bleed a bit of cash and it will hurt but I don't have much of a choice. I feel like it would be hard to drop Phillips after his first game and the way the saints are tracking, so I feel safe going early on him. Looks like he could be a solid player for you guys in the future. Cheers

            • JohnDJ59 says:

              Hi Russty, thought about Finlayson, but I have him in my mids at the moment, yes I still have two rookies in there and wanted to get my defence sorted, still not sure who will be my last upgrade there. Will be getting Danger in next week when I go 1 up 1 down. Still tempted to hold on to Finlayson, I like his dpp.

    • Defying_Madness says:

      Holman/Brayshaw to Phillips and Doedee to Menegola

  99. Phil says:

    Doedee/Finlayson to Yeo is a no brainer, leaves me 61k, in which I can go;
    1.Petracca to Lobb (get rid of that stain forever)
    2.Brayshaw to Phillips. Frees up some money to go after Danger possibly next week. However, going early on Phillips maybe risky for me as I already did this with Worpel. (I could go Cumming instead)
    Option 1 or 2 folks?

  100. Phil says:

    Option 3, just the 1 trade (Yeo)

  101. SC_Sixty6 says:

    #584 climbing each week. Not happy with a few performers. 1 up 1 down again this week. Hopefully the injury rot stops.

  102. TIGESB2B says:

    Hibberd, Savage, JPK, Gibbs …, oh and did I mention DIXON? Dick son!!!!

  103. DavidSA says:

    Can see the drama continues on this site. Not worth my time being here the amount of sh*t talk is for the banter rooms on SC not here. Community dying flapping tarp flown away I think weeks ago I'm going back home to my west ends in the fridge. Last thing I expected was skirts on the sacred Reynolds page

    May as well compare dik size

  104. Whatyasmokin says:

    D.Lloyd and Finlayson out for Danger and Oliver via Higgins swing forward. Big points increase me thinks.

  105. Steeeve says:

    Want to double upgrade Naughton/Finlayson but thinking I'll wait a week and pick up Hurley for Finlayson. Can't afford it this week but Hurley should drop in price. Don't drop a 40 and screw me Finlayson!!

  106. TommyC99 says:

    Seems like all the defense rookies are on the chopping block. Naughton, Murray, Findlayson (in my mids) and Doedee all have high BEs and need to be culled. Which 2 need to go?

    • Crowboy94 says:

      Finlayson and Doedee. Murray can still get his BE this week and Naughton wont play so wont drop in price.

    • Derek says:

      There are no good downgrades in defence, so you need these boys to be upgraded to keepers.

      Are your keepers cheap enough to bring in? Do you even know who they are? Are they round 12 bye (Yeo) and should wait until round 13?

      I got rid of Murray last week for Yeo.

      Still have Doedee and Finlayson. They are both able to score 80’s and can wait as I have a serious problem at F6 that needs to be fixed. Not to mention Billing’s and Petracca.

      I’m happy to hold Finlayson and Doedee for a few more weeks if needed and buy my keeper defenders when they are ready.

      • Crowboy94 says:

        Finlayson and Doedee are stuffed mate. They will stay around 60 to 70 now.

        • Derek says:

          But I have Crowden, Garlet, Langdon, Spargo as my F6 options. None have the ability to score over 50. That has to be my next upgrade.

          • Sc_Wow says:

            The problem is picking an f6 too haha. Buddy and Walters will be good value, they just need to play a few games first

            • Defying_Madness says:

              Yeah I am in a similar position. 2 forwards spots left, can swing Sicily forward though to make it 5. One of these spots is for Gray after his bye and he other goes to Buddy or Walters not sure which one I want though

    • Lazza says:

      What Crowboy said is spot on ..

  107. Noah says:

    Webster or Yeo?

  108. BadgerHoney7 says:

    I would rather not talk about my score and how it affected my rankings.

    • gator59 says:

      OK then , So how is your day going then….. lol

    • Derek says:

      The community are here for you.

      Are you worse than 14,378th?

      No-one else cares, but we do. Tell us, it will make you feel better. Then you can start your rebuild and get back in the game.

      • BadgerHoney7 says:

        Last 2 weeks ranked 3k then down to 7k then again down to 17k, injuries and suspensions have ruined my team (Walters, NicNat, Sicily) as well as bringing in Zerrett two weeks ago then he goes and scores two 70s, Dusty 3 weeks in a row under 100 with 66 this week, than that bloke named Billings. Time to rebuild now.

  109. hedski says:

    Doedee and Finlayson out.
    Simmo and Howe in.
    Bang bang.
    Will hold Murray a bit longer.

  110. Swans2012 says:

    I'm trying not to I really really am but zorko for 459k as a high ceilinged future m9, welcome zorko the remagnificent.

    • Derek says:

      Didn’t he look good. Was all happy and smiling

      • DavidSA says:

        I might be more crazy than that lol
        Thinking of getting Rocky after his bye. Low end midpricer will be handy cash gen and all bye rounds cover if he plays to even 75% of his best footy

        • HarryH says:

          I know. If he pulls out another 100ish score this week I'll be tempted too. But he did it to me last year and it killed me. So I told myself never again.

          Yet here we are

        • Lazza says:

          Hey David, I didn't see the game … what made the difference for Rocky? Was it a new role, players out or just getting back fitness and confidence? or all the above..

          • DavidSA says:

            Lazza Hinkley kept Rockliff where he belongs – on the ball and they used Gray as a fwd 70% of the game. A trend I hope that will stay after it was very effective for Port. Ryder back and a kick up the arse might have cured him

          • Jace says:

            He played only in the midfield witch is good with Robbie Gray playing in the forward line

        • Swans2012 says:

          He's on my list too David, one more decent score this week and him and zorko might share the m8/9 duties

    • Defying_Madness says:

      Expect the Hawks to tag him this week will be the big test

  111. SC_Sixty6 says:

    How is HumanBob feeling today? Got a bit drunk last night and saw his regretful comments! Hence all the deleted comments.

    • DavidSA says:

      Ever heard of the saying "takes 2 to tango"?
      I think one of them should have just stopped replying and I mean probably the sober one

      • Sc_Wow says:

        Always my fault hey Dave?
        Can’t win

        • DavidSA says:

          Wow I'm not having a go at you nor am I saying it's your fault. You are always on the defensive hence what you just said to me. Just stating a fact that it takes 2 to be in a arguement.

          • Sc_Wow says:

            Just frustrating, trying to put out a positive comment to the community and there is always one bloke that needs to have a dig.

            • DavidSA says:

              I know mate… just ignore it man and march onward
              Checked your team and can see you got a good plan for that aweful 14 bye

              • DavidSA says:

                What do you think is better ins this week
                Fyfe and Hurn
                Danger and Yeo
                Been torn on this all of last night

                • SC_Sixty6 says:

                  Danger/Yeo

                  • DavidSA says:

                    Yeah I'm leaning that way ty 66 πŸ‘

                    • SC_Sixty6 says:

                      I actually don't believe you didn't start Fyfe. Each to their own.

                    • DavidSA says:

                      I think it's because I did not have him last year after that 2016 injury mess 2017 looked like his ceiling was cut off but this season if I knew he would be in Brownlow form of course it's a no brainer with his starting price. Will admit I'm gutted I did not start with him. Chose Martin lol

                • Ricardo says:

                  Fyfe/Hurn. Not convinced Yeo is premo quality

                  • Yeahnahyeah says:

                    1 score under 94 all year? 🧐

                  • Neverweaken says:

                    Yeo before Hurn

                  • Whatyasmokin says:

                    Hes a yo yo but average has been good as of last year iirc, hes a must have in defense this year I reckon.

                    History also says Hurn wont keep up this average. Tooth length a possible problem too, although hes resilient ill admit.

                    • DavidSA says:

                      Smokin Hurn keeps looking at me lol but yeah if he drops he will be 430k-450k easy pick up. Yeo 1 shocker game but his ceiling is as good as any and seems to have cured the yo yo effect

                    • Whatyasmokin says:

                      Yep looking at his record, he's never averaged this much. Tom Mac a better gamble I reckon. Lloyd, Sicily, Ryan, Laird, Simpson. Theres a decent 6.

                      Sorry one of sicily/tmac up forward. Yeo slots in.

                    • DavidSA says:

                      Tmac with his instant form has become a contender

                      Mine now is Laird, Sicily, Simpson, Yeo, Shaw. Will get Hurley in when he bottoms out around the 470k

    • NEIL DEMONS DELIGHT says:

      Really no need for the first comment to humanbob Drop it one of you or both what ever whoever you are wow. Be a tad humble and people will respect your obvious talents Mostaccio and Glenn (addicts anOn) were well up last year and not a braggard remark— earn some respect wow On FSC that very first comment would have been deleted because it incites what follows I can guarantee you you wouldn't have done any of this crap there .3 REGULARS had the power to vito

      • Sc_Wow says:

        Are you referring to the one where I congratulated members of the community for ranking well? And simply stated my rank? I’m really unsure as to how that was provoking an argument.
        I received a comment in return that served no purpose other than to bring negativity to my post.

        I recognised people were getting upset and taking my remarks as bragging and I have dialed it right back. I guess some people just look for ways to get upset

        • Whatyasmokin says:

          Theres nothing wrong with celebrating good scores, too many have tall poppy syndrome.

          That saying the way it is delivered is obviously everything, not saying you didn't deliver it respectfully and cant even be bothered looking at the post lol.

          A general comment but people who are aggravated or frustrated with their supercoach team dont vent on the site its poor form. Again delivery of the frustration is key though and many do it in a good, quite humorous fashion.

        • NEIL demons delight says:

          Got me confused why wow replied to DAVID anyway when 66 wrote it NOT THE SAME PERSON HEY

      • Whatyasmokin says:

        Agree the comment by 66 was not called for. It doesn't add anything, isnt on topic of supercoach and should be deleted.

        • Da_Boysh says:

          everyone gets way too triggered over nothing. be polite and don't be too sensitive so we can all focus on what is important….. SC

          • Whatyasmokin says:

            Exactly mate.

            • NEIL demons delight says:

              We had an overseas troll on FANTASY SUPERCOACH who kept changing his tag so everytime he appeared with his foul remarks it only took 3 hits of the report button by 3 respected posters and he was gone .A phone hook up and GONSKI. If it was on this site I would have made that call because at present that first remark incites 50 bad boring posts. A bit of respect and humour is all that's warranted NDD

  112. KSinny says:

    Do I need to trade naughton now? Or should should Doedee and Finlayson go first?

  113. Da_Boysh says:

    I have questions for the community it has been a confusing week;

    Are people trading out Dusty and why

    Are people trading out Merrett and why

    Is it too late to jump on Ronke

    Is Danger now a must have

    Thank you all!

    • KSinny says:

      Dusty will come good
      Zerret will come good
      Too late for Ronke
      Maybe wait another week on Danger of you can

    • Moosehead says:

      No. He will come good
      Yes. Still learning how to handle a tag
      Yes. Jumped $90K and won’t kick seven again
      Danger always has been.
      However, if you have 24 trades do what yo7 like.

      • Da_Boysh says:

        I agree with you guys on everything.. but I am in two minds about Merrett. he has had long enough to show whether he can handle the tag. do you really think he will come good?

        • Hayden says:

          I'm holding until the byes. Right now, I'm fixing my defensive rookies and upgrading there. Once I get full premo, I plan to sideways a few like Merrett if underperforming still. I know I could be getting a better premium now but cash in my rookies whilst their plump.

    • Neverweaken says:

      To late for Ronke unless you think he will be your F6/7
      I felt Dusty got injured late in I think the Melbourne game. Hasnt been the same since. I really think they should rest him but while Dusty at 75% sucks for supercoach Dusty at 75% is still good for tiges. I'm a Richmond supporter. Dusty did nothing Sunday except for a tap to Cotchin for a goal and a 50mtr pass to Caddy for a goal. We win by 10 points
      Don't know why people traded in Merrett.
      Danger seems to be better. Round 14 bye is the only problem for me. Hopefully he stays around the 100-110 point mark til then and I get him after

      • Whatyasmokin says:

        You dont know why people traded in Merrett………the kid has only averaged 110 the last two years, and is only 22 years old. Do I need to say anymore? The kid is a gun.

        Anyway I started with him but holding not a problem, will end up M9 if he has to.

  114. Neverweaken says:

    Goodbye Doedee and Finlayson and hello TMac and Oliver
    Next week Yeo/Danger and Phillips for Murray and Jaeger/Holman
    Hello Robbie Gray R11 and possibly Boak
    Savage has til round 14 to improve and hopefully Armitage can at least get back to 60s then bye bye r14

    Of course before then injuries, sickness, suspensions (AFL and club) players getting rested and lets throw in a sacked coach will destroy all those plans

  115. Mystic_Mac says:

    Glad I held Billings.

  116. KSinny says:

    Thoughts on Doedee and Finlayson to Yeo and Webster? leaves me with one Premo to go in Defence, one in the mid and unfortunaly still 3 in the fowardline

  117. Defying_Madness says:

    Who goes first Brayshaw or Holman. Leaning towards Brayshaw but he looked a lot better last week and if he cleans up his efficient he could get a decent score soon. Holman has ceiling and plays through the byes though and the rest should do him good. Thoughts?

    • INPieman says:

      A bloke that could play through the byes is very handy. Seems to be cemented into the team

      • Whatyasmokin says:

        Yeah Holman playing for what is likely his last chance at AFL after being at the blues. Id expect Brayshaw to be rested later on in the year, that saying he does seem pretty AFL ready. Their stats arent far off each other either.

  118. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    Due to a few injury/corrective trades i'm 5 players off full premo with 18 players remaining. Slightly worrying, but assuming everything goes to plan, i use 10 trades to upgrade my last 5 rookies (1 up 1 down) and then i have 8 trades left for injuries for the rest of the season, which i feel is doable. That being said, the SC gods tend to smite those who assume. So after this weeks trades, how many players off full premium are we all, and how many trades do we have remaining?

    • The Ranger says:

      5 off. 20 trades left.
      Still weighing up whether to get the roller and tray out this week

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      Most people are going better than me, seem to have spent most of my trades on injures ( Crouch, Ryan, Walters ) and corrective (Billings, Hibberd, Petracca ) trades, so only have 16 trades left and 7 players off full premo. Still need D5, D6, M7, M8, F4, F5, F6. Since I won't be playing finals for the first time in my five years of playing, I'm not to worried, last year I was full premo by round 16 and didn't score under 2,370 for the rest of the season, plus I still had 6 trades left come finals time.

  119. INPieman says:

    Jeremy Howe off for scans on his hammy

  120. poloko48 says:

    Is it really to late for Ronke? Still due to make at least $100K maybe more, he's a tackling machine and the Swans will keep him in the side as long as he keeps the pressure up. Are there any other viable rookie fwd options?

  121. Steeeve says:

    Thoughts on Rance at D6?

  122. Doc_1 says:

    Is petracca any use as a M9/F7 swing, or not even worth keeping him for that. Just my sure I’ll grt anything trading him out?

  123. Dermin8r says:

    Is Lachlan Murphy ever going to play again for Adelaide or is it time to move him on for another rookie DEF?
