Round 10 SuperCoach Panic Room

They’re here!!!

We get a soft introduction to our impending doom in the coming weeks with only Port Adelaide and Gold Coast given a week off after their AFL-funded junket to China. Robert the Gray, The Hoff, Riley Bonner, Dom Barry, and Nick Holman are the popular guys (above 10% ownership) that we’ll need to find cover for this week. Some round 10 bye round rules:

  • *crickets chirp*

There are none. This week will be just like any other except there are two teams less. No best 18. No three trades. However, all Port / GC players will be locked in at 4:40 Sunday (the time of Freo v North) so you can use these guys as captain / emergency loophole players. Patch will be putting a dollar into the “Can you loop Gold Coast and Port players” jar every time the question is asked on Twitter to fund the end of season trip, which is a good way of tricking into getting him to pay for something he was going to anyway.

Can we talk about Jackson Macrae real quick? I’m a non-owner (and Patch is, he sends out group emails every hour reminding us). I haven’t seen this level of SuperCoach-ing since before Sir Gazzlington’s shoulders fell off. He had no right to score 177 in those conditions on Friday yet here we are. Oh, and, he’s 23 years old. TWENTY-THREE. We’re not worthy! We’re not worthy!

I do enjoy roasting Patch each week in the Panic Room, but I need to give him and Lek some credit with what they’ve done with the podcast in three or so months. After a rocky start they’re both really finding their feet at this level. Barron’s reserve report will take on extra significance in the coming weeks. Bulk outs may mean going early on a rookie or two so you need to know what you’re getting. Get around some good ol’ fashioned captaincy chinwagging this week right here and Damo continues to mine the depths of SuperCoach to uncover more diamonds in his cheat sheet.

THE NEWS

The big news this week has been AFL’s decision to accept laundry bags full of cash in exchange for naming rights to Etihad stadium, now to be known as Marvel stadium from September 1st. Twitter has, of course, taken the news the only way it knows how.

But I digress, huge amount of team news to get through. For tonight, tagger and noted pest Levi Greenwood gets a recall from from whatever bush league footy team he was playing for to try and curb the influence of Jack Macrae. Ben Reid and Josh Daicos are also ins for Fasolo, Wells, and Sam Murray (ouch #1). The Dogs have also made three changes, dropping Mitch Wallis after 10 tackles last weekend, but handing a club debut to Josh Schache.

During the week the Saints took the unusual step of fingering their middle tier players. The players reported back saying that much like the senior players on the team, they couldn’t find the goal either. It hasn’t had the desired effect (whatever that may be) as they’ve made five changes, Nick Coffield and Rowan Marshall have been dropped, as has David Armitage. There’s a bunch of ins that have no relevance at all, except for a debut for Logan Austin (DEF – 159.7k). The Tigers have made three changes themselves, Jack Higgins straight back in is the most notable. Callum Moore (FWD – 133k) has been rewarded for strong VFL form. The Swans will debut Ryley Stoddart (DEF – 117.3k) but have lost Callum Mills for their clash against Brisbane after he “tripped and fell” and broke his foot. Sure you did, Callum. I can’t help but feel this is somehow Jordan de Goey’s dogs’ fault. Brisbane go in unchanged. The Cats will welcome back Esava and Brandan Parfitt for the clash against Carlton, as well as debuting Jemaine Jones (FWD – 123.9k). No Scott Selwood for this game. Marc Murphy is out again for the Blues, but they get back the Curnow brothers. Jarrod Garlett has been dropped. Josh Kelly has been found, alive and well, but hoooo boy, Jeremy Finlayson (ouch #2) has been dropped and if you went premature on Cumming see a doctor and he’s been dropped too. Lachie Keeffe is also on the cutting room floor. Jono Patton is back. The Bombers are swapping Dylan Clarke with Andrew McGrath.

On Sunday, the Hawks have added James Frawley and Jaegar among 6 changes. James Worpel and Kaiden Brand are confirmed outs so far. The Eagles have no confirmed outs yet, however they’ve named Jarrod Brander (DEF / FWD – 148.8k) and Matthew Allen (FWD – 123.9k) on an extended bench. Brayden Ainsworth is a chance to play his second game. Elliot Yeo has been… named but I’m not confident that he’ll play. Matt Crouch has been named to play Melbourne in one of four potential changes. Reilly O’Brien could shake things up a bit if he plays. TMac has been named for Melbourne. Watch for a late out here, I doubt any risks will be taken with his troublesome foot. The Dees have four potential changes too, but none that’ll force you into a donut. For the final game of the week, both Freo have North have named five new faces with only one confirmed out. For Freo, that’s Mitch Crowden. For North, it’s Majak Daw. Stefan Giro (MID – 102.4k) was exciting to watch in the AFLX, Damo says he’ll play so it’s Damo’s fault if he doesn’t. Not much SuperCoach significance elsewhere, unless you’re still hanging onto LDU, he’s been named on an extended bench.

THE HOUSE OF EVIL

It’s like opening the cupboard the day before pay day this week. A few packs of 2 minute noodles and a can of baked beans will have to do. Ed Phillips is your only hope for high cash gen this week thanks to his 87 in round 8.

Rookies playing their second game this week: Tim Smith (91 in his first game), Jordan Ridley (76), Brayden Ainsworth (66), Bailey Rice (55), Tim Mohr (68), and Mitch Lewis (39). So maybe wait a week to jump on the best option.

These guys come with a free frogurt (that’s good!)

-61 – Ed Phillips*

-5 – Myles Poholke

-1 – Tom McCartin*

3 – Matt Eagles

These premiums contain potassium benzoate (that’s bad!)

Gaz – 179

Adam Treloar – 167

Josh Kelly – 165

Michael Walters – 157

Pendles – 157

Nat Fyfe – 156

Jelwood – 153

Cal Sinclair – 145

James Sicily – 138

Rory Laird – 137

SMOOTH KEVY’S LOCK OF THE WEEK

If by some miracle you’re not completely stuffed for the round 14 bye, there’s a couple of Swans you need to add to your watchlist. The Swans have Brisbane (A), Carlton (H), and St. Kilda (A) in a dream run over the next three weeks, then West Coast at home before their bye. Isaac Heeney has dropped below 500k for the first time this year and has 6 tons from 9 games for an average of 103. His b.e heading into this round is 118. While on the high side Isaac has passed that mark twice this season with scores of 120 and 123.

Buddy Franklin is averaging 104.3 this year and is another under 500k. While his b.e of 136 suggests you could get him cheaper in the coming weeks. there’s this…

A word of caution regarding his heel, he played 75% last week against Freo, whereas his usual TOG% this year is mid to high 90’s. Is he 100% fit?

HEY NOW, YOU’RE A DRAFTSTAR

The Lions “clawed” (sorry) their way off the bottom of the ladder last week with a 56 point “mauling” (sorry, again) of Hawthorn. They’re back at home this week against the 5th placed Swans. Despite their opposing ends of the ladder, I’m hoping to see a competitive game. Our overlords at Fantasy Insider have fired up the Lineup Cruncher for this week, giving us this ideal lineup:

 

My take:

RUCK

I’ve got other plans for my cash this week so Oscar McInerney gets a gig. The Swans typically struggle against big key forwards, giving up 100+ scores to Westhoff, Hawkins, and Tex so far this year. While McInerney doesn’t come close to fitting into that sort of company, standing 204cm and weighing in at 103kg makes him difficult to move out of the way.

FWD

The crowds will flock to Buddy and rightly so. He’s kicked 16 goals in his last 3 vs the Lions. Last time out he kicked 8 goals on his way to 133DS. Brisbane give up the most amount of points in the comp to small/medium forwards this year. I’d love to fire up Ronkey Kong! but his price is heading a bit too far north for mine. Tom Papley as a MID / FWD can go into my mids, and I’ll take Will Hayward.

MIDS

Brisbane absolutely leak points to opposition midfielders. Luke Parker got back on the horse with Buddy returning last week. Isaac Heeney hasn’t hit the higher gears we all know he has, but 13k is a good price for his potential upside. We know Cam Rayner has the talent but it hasn’t all clicked for him as yet. If Brisbane are to win this one it’ll need to be a shootout, hopefully this is his week to get on the end of a few.

DEF

While I’m hoping for some competitive footy, I don’t think it will be. Sydney will overwhelm a young Brisbane outfit. Some Brisbane running backs will be popular targets. Harris Andrews is going to see a lot of the ball coming his way if he gets the job on Buddy. He’s scored 80’s these past two weeks so nabbing him at under 10k is a good get. Tom Cutler is averaging 24 touches and 10 marks these past two weeks. I suspect he’ll see a lot of action as well. Jake Lloyd is in crazy touch right now, the only way you can afford him is by fading Buddy (or by doing something stupid in your mids). I don’t mind this play if you think Buddy will falter as he’ll be highly owned.

My lineup:

Good luck this week, Community. Some backline carnage is giving us an early taste of what the upcoming byes rounds can do to your team. It’s not too late to prepare your team to get through it.

  1. Connor says:

    What are the communities thoughts on grabbing J. Lloyd at his low price with a B/E of 4 instead of Yeo who is potentially under an injury could – can then trade Lloyd or someone else down to Yeo after his RD 12 bye???
    Thoughts very much appreciated

    • AFC1886 says:

      Worst case scenerio you bring in Yeo this week and he doesn't play he will still end up being a top 6 defender
      In the short term Lloyd is the better option but Yeo is better in the long run
      If you're desperate for a league win bring in Lloyd if not I'd go Yeo

    • Jack says:

      Depends how many defender spots you have left. If only 1 bring in Yeo and ignore breakevens.
      If more, I can see merit in bringing in Lloyd now as he has his bye 2 rounds after Yeo. You could then get Yeo after his bye to complete your backline.

    • DavidC says:

      Wasting trades.

    • RockJeynolds says:

      I hope that you got Lloyd and are going to keep him?

  2. Ken says:

    Matt crouch? Or go for Rockliff next week?

    If I get Rockliff, that means I can afford yeo

  3. Rob says:

    Need some thoughts on these options community. Bye structure is fine, basically unsure of how essential the rookies are. Any help would be much appreciated!
    1. Yeo and Phillips (Buddy and Ridley/ T.Smith next week)
    2. Buddy and Ridley (Yeo and T.Smith next week)

  4. AFC1886 says:

    Currently have a 0 in defense, do I trade to Finlayson to Yeo hoping he plays or just cop the donut and trade T Kelly to Dangerfield?

  5. Jack says:

    I can trade out Henry or Murray
    If I keep Henry his breakeven is 87 so likely to lose $, however I could loophole Henry into Spargo & Rice into Murphy (if he plays)
    If I keep Murray, I don't lose any money but can't loophole fwds or defs.
    What's more important, the loop or the loot?

  6. Dodge says:

    Need to bring in a one gamer due to the backline carnage this week. Which one – Ridley or Rice?

    Not worried about scoring ability. Its purely about job security as they'll sit at D7/8 as cover (full DEF after my other trade this week).

    Rice a slight advantage re: bye structure but no good if he's not playing, hence JS the priority.

    • Jack says:

      Rice has better job security. I'm picking him over Ridley even though scoring potential does matter to me as they will have to be D6 until Yeo has his bye and comes in

  7. Nick says:

    Community, thoughts on best option to upgrade from Murray out of
    1. T Mac
    2. Howe
    3. Loyde
    4. Webster

    Cheers,

  8. Jack says:

    Top5 defenders looked very obvious all year hut I feel there's been a bit of shakeup.
    Lloyd, Howe, Ryan and McDonald are definitely throwing theirs names into the mix.
    Whereas 2 of the guys I had in there you'd have to consider giving them a miss if you dont have them

    Simpson: has been down a little. Taggers? Has Dale Thomas taken his role/points?

    Hurley: He has had the intercepting defender role as his own the last 2 seasons and his scores has reflected this. However, another All-Australian defender has gone back there now (Hooker) and played that position beautifully last week. Does Hurley automatically get that spot back, or does he become more accountable?

  9. Richie Porte says:

    Right then, Kelly or Henry for Phillips
    Trade Murray or Naughton first. Naughton 1-2 weeks away

  10. Kyle says:

    Thoughts on rice ??

  11. Brady says:

    DEF – Laird, Dodee, Murray, Finlayson, Cole, Mirra (Hurley & Duman)

    Murray and Finlayson out.
    Got Lloyd & Ridley in. Hurley hopefully back in next week aswell to strengthen the defense up. Cole potentionally to yeo/scicily/webster/Simpson very soon. Got 330k in bank after this weeks trades.
    Backline carnage this week.

    Does Lloyd continue his form? He burnt me last year..

  12. Jim says:

    Is it more essential to trade Henry (87 BE) out this week (say for a Ridley) OR to get Phillips in? Can only do one or the other.

  13. Yeahnahyeah says:

    Who has the best chance of being recalled next week out of Coffield, Finlayson, Murray?

  14. Help says:

    Any suggestions? got 17 trades and $193k.

    DEF: Laird Yeo slicly Simpson, Doedee, Murray ( naughton, Murphy)

    MID: Fyfe Cripps Titch Martin Cogs Crouch T.Kelly Holman (brodie coffield Barry)

    RUCK: Gawn Nic nat (Cameron)

    FWD: McLean Smith Heeney keefe Fritsch Spargo (Ahern Crowden)

  15. Shake_n_Bake says:

    Am l the only one considering trading Kelly to Phillips???

  16. Holmesy says:

    D.Barry or A.Brayshaw to phillips??
    more cash made from brayshaw trade but he gives me bye coverage.
    Barry won't get his spot back anytime soon

  17. TheGreatBozza says:

    Thoughts on English > Phillips? Only other viable option to bring in Phillips is to downgrade Billings or Kelly.
    English was supposed to be ruck cover for the byes but he won't be back for a while.

    Other trade will be offloading Finlayson depending on how Richards goes tonight (loophole with Finlayson)

  18. Corza says:

    Hi Community
    I need advice on who to downgrade Naughton to this week?

    • SC_Kev7 says:

      I’d hold, Corzo. If it’s to avoid a donut, the Community likes Rice’s js more than Ridley

      • Russty_ says:

        Ridley would be stiff to get dropped next week though even if he has a shocker this week, he had 25 disposals and 7 tackles in his first game.
        Depends on if he has to make way for Hurley though I guess.

  19. red5 says:

    Thoughts on trading Sam Murray up to Shannon Hurn.

  20. KSinny says:

    Yeo confirmed as playing

  21. KSinny says:

    Lloyd or Howe? Convince me of one Community.

    • Valens_FC says:

      Howe's game is built on intercept marking and a high kick to handball ratio. Fundamentally, he is a more SC scoring orientated player. If you're talking this week, there's also the risk of what Mills' injury does to Lloyd's role. Howe for mine.

  22. Jack Macrae says:

    Levi who?

    • gator59 says:

      Levi Deadwood!!!

      • neil demons delight says:

        Hi Gat With Murphy and Keefe out are you changing your trades ,.you still can swing Sicily I guess Doesn't get any easier in THE MAGNIFICENT 7 Last week got creamed by you this week Trigg Wish I could play the saints I might win Cheers NDD

  23. Rocksta_ says:

    If Yeo gets on the Plane I reckon he’s definitely playing.
    Flight’s aren’t good for injuries due to the pressure which promotes swelling.

  24. Banga says:

    Ridley or Rice? Obviously not ideal but need to pick up one of them

  25. theRealPod says:

    Does anyone have info on the debutante Stoddard? I know he's quick and only 18.

  26. AFC1886 says:

    Lachlan Murphy omitted!!

  27. Defying_Madness says:

    Mirra looking the goods for cash, got a game again

  28. simon says:

    with the doggies now having boyd, schache and dickson in the forward line, do we think bontempelli will be left with even more midfield time now.. highly considering the vc on him this week with schache in..

    or should i just leave it vs danger, c titch as its hard to go wrong there

  29. BadgerHoney7 says:

    Went Murray to Appleby a couple of weeks ago – very happy

  30. theRealPod says:

    If you're thinking of bringing in Yeo this week consider his avg. of 60.2 vs Hawks with a high score of 92, and his recent injury problem.

    • Marty says:

      Some of those scores would have been before he was given midfield time and they just shut his run out of defence.

    • Ahmad rubas says:

      ended up going dusty vc and rice instead of yeo and phillips if yeo stays under the ton and drops in price a little before his bye that would be perfect

      • theRealPod says:

        Going off his avg vs Hawks it's a good move. Good luck with Dusty today. I've gone Danger VC into Fyfe C (for now).

        • Ahmad rubas says:

          im going dusty into danger this week should work out. if i were you i would avoid fyfe C could cop the jacobs tag

          • theRealPod says:

            Jacobs could go to Neale. It's hard to ignore Fyfe's avg vs Roos of 120 and his last three scores 139, 126 in 2017 and a 141 in 2016. Of course I'm hoping Danger makes all this irrelevant.

            • Ahmad rubas says:

              Yeah I agree I think danger will go off and won't need to worry and yeah he could go to Neale plus it will be much harder to tag Fyfe compared to neale. Either way I hope Fyfe does well for you as C if danger doesn't go off somehow

  31. BadgerHoney7 says:

    Murphy not playing for those who might cop a 0 – unhappy he has been dropped – need that $$$ generation

  32. Jack says:

    I've got the best midfield in the country.
    Macrae, Danger, Martin, Titch, Cripps, Oliver, Fyfe & Kelly.
    Any ideas who to bring in for last spot Kelly? Maybe his namesake?

  33. Gem says:

    Option 1 – Trade Murray, Sub Sicily back, Sub Petracca Fwd, Get in Phillips
    Then Henry or Brayshaw to a FWD or MID like Buddy or Lloyd
    Option 2 – Trade Henry, Sub Petracca Fwd, Get in Phillips
    Trade Murray to Lloyd
    I'm just not sure what to do with the Byes and trades this week. Greatly appreciate your advice.
    Got 67K in bank.

    DEF: Laird, Simpson, Shaw, Yeo, Doedee, Cole, (Murray, L Murphy)
    MID: Fyfe, Danger, Titch, Dusty, Cogs, T Kelly, Petracca, Brayshaw (Barry, Holman, Spargo)
    RUC: Gawn, NicNat (Olango)
    FWD: Heeney, Maclean, Sicily, D Smith, Billings, Fritsch (Guelfi, Henry)

  34. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    Do I trade duman/murphy to rice to avoid a donut? Playing my dad in leagues this week so my pride is on the line. Logically it’s a bad idea but I want to

  35. Gav says:

    Cop zero or trade Murray to crisp?

  36. Octa says:

    Is it worth while getting Mirra in for Murray. Job security?

  37. Beezneez says:

    I've just traded Murray for Ryan which gives me Laird, Yeo, Sicily, Ryan, Doedee and Appleby on field with Hurley and Murphy on the bench in defence. In the forward line I have three rookies in Higgins, Guelfi and ZGL on field (also Heeney, McLean, D Smith) with Gray and Keeffe on the bench. I am toying with the idea of trading Hurley to Lloyd/Webster/ Simpson which would mean swapping Sicily with Keeffe and only playing two rooks fwd. Is it worth the move? If I don't do this trade, I will proceed with Crowden to Phillips for cash generation. Hurley may be back next week.

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      Looks like you don't have to worry about a donut Beezneez, so the only reason to trade out Hurley would be you think Lloyd will out score him from here or he might be out for longer than we thought, it has been happening this year. If none of those reasons then trade out Crowden to Phillips, at least you have that choice.

  38. neil demons delight says:

    Great job KEV a must for all coaches. Yes mate the podcasts started embarrassing to all but have got better each week.Now they are a must . too..A lot of coaches will suffer with little or no def. cover.It pays to keep an eye on future cover and valuable dpp.. Keep up the good work Kev Cheers NDD

  39. TheGreatBozza says:

    Any last minute tips? 23 trades and 50k bank

    B – Laird, Howe, Sicily, Savage, Doedee, Finlayson (Richards, Murphy)
    M – Titch, Dusty, Danger, Fyfe, Cripps, Pendles, Cogs, Kelly (Higgins, Holman, Spargo)
    R – Gawn, Grundy (Hayes)
    F – Walters, McLean, Smith, Billings, Fritsch, Ronke (English, ZGL)

    Option 1
    English to Phillips
    Finlayson to Yeo if Richards (loop) is poor

    Option 2
    Hold English, swing Hayes Fwd as a fwd loop.
    Drop Kelly/Billings for Phillips
    Same as above regarding Finlayson

    Option 1 or 2?? Thoughts?

  40. Clarky says:

    Yeo, Luke Ryan or Lloyd?

  41. r_calve says:

    anyone reckon i should go Murray to crisp as a POD

    • Macca says:

      Yep I reckon part of the reason Murray is in the two’s is crisp is running defender taking runs and delivering upfield….and he is delivering much much better.

  42. cashcows says:

    Going with:
    Kelly + Henry -> Phillips + Lloyd

    Holding onto Brayshaw who has the lower BE between him and Henry
    Copping a donut in defence with Murphy, Hurley and Duman.
    Yeo could make it worse as well.

  43. Fox says:

    Naughton and Brayshaw to Rice and Dusty?

  44. hawksman23 says:

    gday community, could really use some help with my side, as i am playing a mate in leagues it is important i get the W.
    DEF – laird, yeo, ryan, hibberd, doedee, murray {mirra, oshea}
    MID – fyfe, danger, cripps, mitchell, oliver, dusty, gibbs, kelly {phillips, barry, coffield}
    RUC – Gawn, Nic Nat {olango}
    FWD – Mclean, Heeney, smith, billings, fritsch, spargo {higgins, ryan}
    thoughts are to somehow get howe in for murray, unsure how to do it though with no cash in bank
    18 trades left, any ideas?

    • Russty_ says:

      It's risky but you could trade Billings ( shit) to Tim Smith( 91 last week) and then get Howe for Murray, then loophole Higgins with Smith/ Ryan.
      Why do you still have Ryan?

      • hawksman23 says:

        have been loopholing billings with one of the rooks with him and it hasnt been that much of a liabililty with him in. shit me he might even return back sokn and make me cash

        • Russty_ says:

          Ryan's still 4 to 6 weeks away from returning, a lot of guys will be trading him back in if he resumes his good previous form though.

  45. Diney says:

    What is Stoddard’s job security like. When the Swans select a player they generally give him a decent go. Might his JS be better with Mills out?

  46. Dav says:

    Any chance of Nank being a late out?

  47. Jarryd says:

    Who would you rather have on field out of these two combos:

    1) Michael Walters, Tim Kelly and Fritsch

    2) Michael Walters, Fritsch and Ronke

  48. Gem says:

    Cripps or Oliver. Don't have either

  49. Joe T says:

    Bring Dusty in this week and pass on Ed Phillips? Or bring in Phillips now and get Dusty next week? Latter option means if someone gets injured this week I may have to skip Dusty all together or just ignore the injured player.

  50. JIMMY says:

    Gaff or Martin this Week and next week Westhoff or R Gray

    • Ja191 says:

      if its your m7 i'd pick up gaff and wait til dusty hits some form to bring him in for m8, if its m8 grab dusty. Not too sold on robbie with rockliff in the side

    • theRealPod says:

      Who would of thought such a question would be put to the community? I would grab Dusty before the game today.

  51. TommyC99 says:

    Yeo or Luke Ryan?

  52. neil demonsdelight says:

    the bulldogs said they wanted to go small in the forwards so they dropped Wallis for Sache. .ah really doggies

  53. Rivo says:

    Love the Friday Panic Room Kev!

    Early carnage in the backline just a taste of what’s to come through the byes. Praying that Yeo plays as I’ve had to make 2 trades just to get 6 defenders on the park.

    Keeping Murray over Finlayson & Naughton. Just think he has a touch more currency over the other 2 & might even be good bench cover.

  54. muz says:

    simpson or ryan please

  55. MEK says:

    Should i downgrade Kelly this week to Phillips ED that is or should i upgraghed him to Dusty or Gaff

  56. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Going Billings to Tim Smith early, then Murray straight up to Howe. Howe has that round 13 bye which is strategically important. Lloyd and Ryan who I was looking at for better value have the dreaded round 14 bye. My policy for the next 3 weeks is no round 14 bye players shall be traded into my team. Period. Next week Crowden straight up to Rocky. Holman and Rocky to hopefully pump out the important points during the byes. That leaves me with 16 trades approaching the byes and 4 away from full premo. VC Danger into Gawn this week. Good luck all!

    • Russty_ says:

      Good one Hawk, yep good call, no rd 14 players in…there are plenty of good choices available from the other bye rounds. good luck mate.

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        Thanks Russty. Billings just had to go this week. One less round 14 bye flog player to worry about. Hibbo get's a stay of execution purely because he has the round 13 bye. I am a believer your season is defined during the byes. Screw up and it's all over. Go well mate!

        • Russty_ says:

          Understandable mate, Billings has turned into a trainwreck and is only damaging teams keeping him, hopefully Timmy Smith kicks ass again this week and ends up making you some points and moola, he's named as CHF so they must have some confidence in him!

          • Whatyasmokin says:

            Did quick research on him and like his story, his stats although small sample size show good pressure and of course a few hitouts that can be sc gold if to advantage.

    • neil demonsdelight says:

      Going the same toppa danger into gawn.Timmy could prove to be a great choice

  57. Arnold says:

    URGENT: Ridley or Rice?

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      If you are like most coaches and have a lot of players with the round 14 byes, then you better choose Ridley. Has the round 13 bye. Rice has the round 14 bye. Why bring him in and potentially compound your problems during round 14? Just my take. Good luck mate.

    • SamuraiPizzaCat says:

      Ridley

  58. MEK says:

    ED PHILLIPS OR MISS HIM AND GET GAFF

  59. Nadonis says:

    Murray to ridley locked in as first trade, slight dilemma for the second. $345k to spend after this.

    1- Hibberd to Dangerfield via Finalyson DPP (no bench cover for Yeo who could be a late out)

    2- Finlayson to Gaff (price and byes), stuck with Hibberd til after his bye, but bench cover for Yeo if needed

  60. Marty says:

    Yeo or Howe?

  61. Gem says:

    Last Minute trades?
    DEF: Laird, Simpson, Shaw, Yeo, Doedee, Cole, (Murray, L Murphy)
    MID: Fyfe, Danger, Titch, Dusty, Cogs, T Kelly, Petracca, Brayshaw (Barry, Holman, Spargo)
    RUC: Gawn, NicNat (Olango)
    FWD: Heeney, Maclean, Sicily, D Smith, Billings, Fritsch (Guelfi, Henry)

  62. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Have sufficient numbers across all byes but is Round 12:16 'premos', Round 13:17 'premos' and round 14:15 'premo's decent? Was contemplating trading in Andrews over Ryan to even it up at 16 premos per bye but I like Ryan much more as a keeper pick.

  63. Murray says:

    Anyone noticed some annoying adverts on fan footy. I have an an iPad and this ad keeps popping up covers the whole screen. Anyone know how to get rid of it, first time I have ever come across this

  64. AFC1886 says:

    Macrae loves a cheap possession doesn’t he?!?

  65. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Heard a bit of talk about him, Anyone take the punt on Scharenberg? Looking solid so far

  66. HumanBob says:

    My SC luck just wont stop! potential onfield 50 in def but Ed Richards almost hits his ave by half time to maybe pull me from the fire again.
    Bloody hell Ed has got himself another 3-weeks on my bench, he'll go 100+ no worries. I

  67. Russty_ says:

    So much for Macrae being tagged by Greenwood, more fake news, Pendles is playing on him, and they're pretty much cancelling eachother out, both going ok so far..at half time.

  68. Shake_n_Bake_ says:

    Bullshit home game at Etihad against dogs! If we have to play a home game there give us an interstate club. 🤬

  69. Defying_Madness says:

    Watching the Bulldogs makes me remember The Bont is just as overrated as 'The Package'.

  70. Finnius says:

    Ed Richards on fire!!

    • Russty_ says:

      Do you have him Finn?…his head looks like it's on fire lol

    • HumanBob says:

      14,000 very happy supercoaches tonight thanks to Ed in a weekend of def carnage.
      The down side is that I also have Bont

      • Russty_ says:

        Know how ya feel Bob…I have Howe, hoping he can salvage something in the last…45 so far ugh!

        • JohnDJ59 says:

          My great season continues as I changed my mind about who to bring in, was going with Lloyd and Ryan, changed my mind, went with Howe and Lloyd, sorry to all the Howe owners.

          • Russty_ says:

            Reckon you accidentally disturbed an ancient indian burial ground John, that would explain your year so far…it's a curse.

          • gator59 says:

            Thanks JD another one you've jinxed… lol

            • JohnDJ59 says:

              The worst thing is I've never been a big Howe fan, in SC that is, never had him in my team, but he seemed to be scoring well and I wanted a POD Howe was 5.6%, which is why I was looking at Ryan 3.1%, but then I looked at my byes which I don't normally do and as everyone has been saying rd 14 was not looking good, Howe was playing, Ryan wasn't. I shouldn't have worried about it.

          • Sandyf62 says:

            Hey JD I brought in Lloyd and Ryan put Finlayson and Murray on the bench and put Richards on the field, so something went right for me for a change. You should always stick to your plan unless something happens that you have to change it. A lot of people might have been getting Phillips in but then had to change that due to what happened in defence, but that's not what you did, you changed players when there was no reason to and going on your post you didn't even rate Howe in the first place so why bring him in.

            • JohnDJ59 says:

              Hey Sandy I mainly did it after looking at the byes and rd14, but I shouldn't have worried, since my rd13 is just as bad, rd 12 no worries. I've never worried about the byes before, reckon they can look after themselves and should just get the players you want, I didn't do that this time round, I let the byes influence my decision, so another lesson learnt.

        • HumanBob says:

          Lol I dodged a bullett there as well. I was going to trade finlayson to Howe but I started cooking dinner before making the trade and forgot all about it until 3 minutes before the bounce, I hit the 'Team' menu item and got logged out, logged back in to blank screen until 2min mark of first qrtr. Sooo lucky with richards as my D7

          • JohnDJ59 says:

            Good one Bob, see luck does play a part in SC to all those who say it doesn't, I saw Sandy said in a post she had Richards, so she will be happy as well.

            • HumanBob says:

              I reckon that its mostly luck John. Getting the balance right between potential for good luck and potential for bad luck with your starting team is where the skill comes into it

          • Russty_ says:

            Worked out good for you in that regard this week Bob, except for the Bont part.

            • HumanBob says:

              Yeah Bont didn't want to be there tonight. He'll be a bargain after his bye for those lucky sods that didn't start him

              • SC_Sixty6 says:

                Wouldn't pick up bont even when he is cheap. Rather a treloar. Gets alot of it, it's just a matter of if he uses it and kicks goals. Bont doesn't rack em up. Not a fan apart from being CD second love child.

  71. BShiiite says:

    Macrae free kick UNBELIEVABLE greenwood great tackle

    CD love him, umpires love him can't win

  72. TBone_9 says:

    Just brought Howe in for Murray over Ryan and he’s delivering this shit 🙁 lift mate!

    • Marty says:

      Think i dodged that bullet. Sharenberg and Crisp taking points away from him

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      Did the same, changed my mind just before the bounce. Note to self, never change your mind just before the start of a game.

    • Russty_ says:

      Howe will be right mate, just a slow game..betcha he tons it next week.

      • TBone_9 says:

        Yeah looks like that!

        Mate, had Ryan locked in but freaked out thinking about only having 13 odd players for round 14 bye! Reversed trades with 2 mins before lockout and went with Howe

        Yeah I hope so Russty! Paid a premium for him but I have faith he will bounce back 🙂

    • Dingus says:

      That'd be my fault, brought him in after agonizing over it with him & lloyd, can bet ur left nut lloyd will go BANG now…fmscl

  73. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    For everyone with the vc on Macrae, who are you captaining?

  74. Jacko says:

    Just walked in from the movies. Is Howe injured?

  75. KSinny says:

    Wish I'd stuck with Lloyd instead of Howe…

  76. Finnius says:

    Grundy with the VC and Mclean carving up as well! AND Macrae didn't get 160. Crossley gets his first run with the armband.

    Would have been an incredible start if Howe didn't spud it up. 5 round average of 113 he was always going to crash down to earth. Still happy I started him though.

  77. SamuraiPizzaCat says:

    Thank you captain Grundy

  78. JugHead says:

    Finger hovered over the trade button to bring in Bont all week. Went Howe instead to patch up the defence.
    You know you're going badly when BOTH of your premo choices would have been crap.

  79. The BONT says:

    Iv got danger as VC and my opponent has Grundy as VC. Im crying on the inside

  80. Sc_Wow says:

    727k well spent?

  81. Russty_ says:

    152…thank you Mr Grundy!

  82. Crowboy94 says:

    Glad I got Crisp over Howe!

  83. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Giles Langdon or T.Smith on field?

  84. Rivo says:

    Grundy VC. Welcome to the Captains Lounge Mr.Olango. 👨‍✈️

  85. ATeam12345 says:

    Finlayson to Lloyd or Yeo, Henry to Phillips via Spargo
    or
    Henry to Franklin, Finlayson to Ridley

  86. Gem says:

    1 trade left for a Premo. Can get a DEF, MID, or FWD. Have 270K
    Trade out T Kelly, Henry or Brayshaw – which one?
    Trade in Lloyd, Cripps, Oliver or Buddy – which one?

    BTW 21 Contested by Grundy is a brilliant effort. Don't have him, but great effort

  87. Mark says:

    Take Treloars 133 as VC or risk Mitchell?

  88. BrownlowBoy says:

    Murray dropped on form according to Bucks

  89. Noah says:

    Luckily i got Lloyd instead of Howe!

  90. Jeffrey says:

    Which 2 to field out of Henry, Guelfi, Fritsch?

  91. Stupid Coach says:

    Should I put the VC on Cripps, Danger or Dusty. Gawn has the C.

  92. Pman says:

    Painting the fence with Murray to Ridley and was set on upgrading Finlayson to Lloyd but now that Mills is out for the year I'm worried what that might mean for his scoring and are now giving serious thought too Webster of St Kilda. Prior to his last two huge weeks Lloyd had scored sub 100 scores for 6 consecutive weeks wheres Webster has scored under 100 on only one occasion this year and is a POD selection (2.5% of teams). Thoughts on who is a better selection and why?

  93. Daniel says:

    Which 2 should I play onfield out of Guelfi, Billings, ZGL + Spargo?

  94. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    one of Doedee and Kelly will be out of my side next week, whoever spuds it up this weekend. Doedee will be going to Jonas/Boak and Kelly to Treloar/Oliver. They are both tied for rookie of the year in my eyes but you cant hold on to them forever or your side will stagnate.

    • Russty_ says:

      It's been great to be able to hang onto them this long though, I still have em both too, but next week one of them goes, unless there's a nice 100 there.

      • JohnDJ59 says:

        I was looking at my team and after a double upgrade this weekend and no cash to speak of left, trading out Kelly is going to be my only option if I want to do a 1 down 1 up and not 2 down.

        • neil demonsdelight says:

          You certainly have had your share of bad luck JOHN .Hopefully it will turn around soon NDD

          • JohnDJ59 says:

            Yea thanks Neil, its just all come to a head this round with the outs and injuries and then bringing in the wrong player after changing my mind, I need to do a 1 up 1 down in the backline next week, with the two donuts sitting there, annoying really since I wanted to get Smith in next week.

  95. Nick says:

    Who will score more out of Mirra,Henry or ZGL?

  96. The Ranger says:

    Good Toby is really good isn't he?

  97. TheGreatBozza says:

    Went Howe over Grundy for VC which has backfired, but luckily Ed Richards showed up:

    Should I back in Danger as captain?

  98. KKP says:

    Could I please get some advice on who to bring in for Finlayson

    Ryan, Webster or Lloyd

    Currently have Laird, Yeo and Simpson as premiums

    Cheers

  99. TommyC99 says:

    So the bye rounds are just around the corner, and every decision we make has to have the byes in mind. Here’s my current structure in terms of premos playing.

    Round 12: 12 premos playing
    Round 13: 12 premos playing
    Round 14: 10 premos playing

    Those numbers include Mills who I’m trading out. Do I go Ryan, Lloyd or Yeo?

    • Sc_Wow says:

      You seem short every round my minimum is 16

    • Ahmad rubas says:

      round 12 15 premos
      round 13 9 premos
      round 14 12 premos
      as you can see i havent planned well. if i were you i would go with yeo as round 12 bye is better than round 14 bye and excluding byes i think he is the best option of the 3.

    • Marcus says:

      Confused how we are meant to have 16 premos play each round when at best you would have maybe 20 premos in your whole team

    • neil demonsdelight says:

      I have 14 14 14.which is a tad low Boak and Rocky will help. I have a choice of culling FRITSCH and COLE or SHAW and BARRY Think I may keep Fritsch and Cole Any thoughts WoW

      • Sc_Wow says:

        I’d keep the other two, fritz has been on a good run but have to remember he’s a rookie. Look at Finlay and Murray

        • NEIL Demons Delight says:

          thanks for your learned advice would you keep Shaw/ barry because shaw is an almost keeper or because FRITZ/COLE being rooks will spud up. NDD

    • Blaknight says:

      I'm sitting with 13, 15 & 12. this includes Rocky coming in this week.

      This is my current team.

      DEF: Laird, Yeo, Sicily, Lloyd, McGovern, Cole (Cumings, Keeffe)
      MID: Fyfe, Danger, Mitchell, Oliver, Selwood, Zorko, Martin, Kelly (Brayshaw, Barry, Phillips)
      RUCK: Gawn, Martin (Olango)
      FWD: McClean, Darling, Walters, Fritsch, Spargo, Fogarty (Deledio, Garlet)

      18 trades $47,800 remaining

      This weeks trades I'll attempt a double upgrade (well 1 sideways and 1 up)
      1. Kelly to Rocky thats a lock!

      I was going to bring in Howe however he is now projected to loose $5kish this week after last nights spudism. If i bring him in for round 14 he's projected to drop to mid $490's. Thats even with him averaging 100 rounds 11 and 12 due to that spud 59 in his 3 round rolling average.

      I'll attempt to bring in Boak now. It all depends if Kelly makes his BE and increases his value and Fritsch going huge. I'll doubt this will happen and i'll have to paint the fence.

      God i love SC!

    • redherringfc says:

      Try to pick up Yeo for round 13, after his bye.

    • Gem says:

      I have to get one Premo this week in any line. Who would you get for which Bye is better?
      R12 – 12
      R13 – 13
      R14 – 12

    • Russty_ says:

      Forget premos playing i'll be happy if I can get 18 warm bodies on the field in 13 and 14.

  100. Holty01 says:

    Ive been planning on bringing in Laird all week but now thinking of holding off for a few weeks and bring in Franklin instead. Both have big B/E but Sydneys next few weeks look very sc friendly for Franklin.

    • theRealPod says:

      Hey Holty. Do you have Heeney? If you don't I would definitely grab Buddy.

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      Laird should have been your first picked defender, what were you thinking Holty.

      • Holty01 says:

        He has ended up being my big mistake this year John. Thought he was over priced, he has been injury prone in the past and honestly did not think he would be averaging 112 at this point in the season.

        • JohnDJ59 says:

          I looked at the backs at the start and he was the only one I could pick with any confidence,he was my second picked last year, the other two I went with, Hibbo (spud) and Mills (injured) didn't work out as well. Then to make matters worse I traded Hibbo to Hurley, who then got himself injured.

      • Sandyf62 says:

        There was Laird, then maybe three others, Yeo, Hurley, Lloyd, then the rest.

  101. TOPHAWK1 says:

    So, traded in Jeremy Howe and has started with a giant turd………. But that is OK. McLean and Sicily started with big tonnes after trading them in earlier. That is just the law of averages at work. That is what you get with Howe, a high standard deviation scoring wise. 125 one week, then 60, comes out with a 130 the week after etc etc. Come the byes, Howe will be the saviour as other coaches who are trading in Ryan, Lloyd, etc this week will be shuffling deck chairs around on the titanic come round 14.

    • Sc_Wow says:

      Not if people have planned. I know 66 has Laird Ryan Lloyd but will still have plenty of premos rd14

    • Jack says:

      I bought in Howe too, even though I preferred Lloyd but was influenced by the bye. But, the way I see it Lloyd, Howe & Ryan will all average roughly 95 from here on so don't think either decision will pay/lose huge dividends unless if one gets injured, which you can't predict.

      • DavidSA says:

        I know what hawk is talking about though…
        I have:
        3 premo defenders out r12
        2 premo defenders out r13
        1 premo defender out r14

        Midfield is overall the hardest to avoid anything less than 3 premo out r14

  102. Kane says:

    K. Simpson, Top 6 Defender? If so, Would you pick him up at the moment at $487k? Does anyone have he's BE for me please?

    • Ahmad rubas says:

      119

    • redherringfc says:

      He’ll be close to top 6.

      BE is 119 this week and the same next week. Projected to be about 100 both weeks, so he might drop a bit more over the next 2 weeks.

      I’ll be having a look at him after his bye.

      • Kane says:

        Yeah ok, Fair call. Just a bit light on in the defence. Have potential 500k to spend on an upgrade. Might just hold, Although i have Finlayson which is bleeding out. What would you recommend with him?

        • redherringfc says:

          I’ve held him this week.

          There’s a chance he might just be rested and if so, he could come back with some decent scores.

          If he’s not named next week I’ll probably trade him out. If he is named next week, I’ll probably hold for a few more weeks.

  103. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    Thoughts.
    Vc dusty today or
    Titch 2mrw?
    Just gotta be in my toes tomorrow if go Titch.

    Fell dusty could turn into a tackling beast today.

  104. Kane says:

    Mcrae VC didn't work out. I'm projected to lose my head to head by about 80points. My opponent is C Gawn. Who should i put the big C on? Danger, Titch, Oliver, Cripps, Fyfe, Martin and Gawn?

    • DavidSA says:

      Yeo will be tagging Titch I believe – a run with role – "if Yeo plays"
      Fyfe will struggle to produce a big score I think.
      Don't trust Oliver anymore he is a good player but does not have that uber elite ceiling it seems.
      Cripps or Danger for me if to go against Gawn but I like Gawn the most out of all of them sorry to say

      • Kane says:

        I was afraid you would say that. Haha yeah i like Gawn the most also. Thanks for your advice, Much appreciated.

      • Kane says:

        Adding to what you said actually, Hutchings normally does a tagging role also. He is a better suit for size on titch imo. To be honest i think Yeo might have a bit of a run with role on I. Smith.

    • Russty_ says:

      I reckon Cripps Kane, agree with Dave with his reasoning, Fyfe maybe copping the Jacobs tag too.

    • Lazza says:

      Projections are generally crap.. don’t make a panic call…

      • Kane says:

        Yeah, To be honest. I was comparing the two teams. And not being biased, I still think my teams is better 😉 even thought he's projected to win.

    • Jack says:

      When it doubt go with average. Gawn for me, him and Grundy haven't had a bad game yet so I'd be confident putting the C on them anytime unless they are playing each other, Sandi or NicNat

  105. SC_Sixty6 says:

    All this talk about danger is due! Sure you want to convince yourself he's the best option for VC or C but I stopped putting it on him after rd 3 because he's just not into it this year. Under done and their ruck stocks are just plain rubbish. I'd expectt him after the bye to come out and smash some monster scores.

    If they smash the blues then don't expect a big score apart from the blokes that kill it in the first qtr. You want nice tight contested footy. Fizzer of a game later today

    • Jack says:

      Very logical advice there 66, think I'll slap it on the bearded one then

      • SC_Sixty6 says:

        Smart. Jacob's is so out of form it isn't funny and I can see the demons doing in the crows this week. Hope not but wouldn't surprise me.

    • Russty_ says:

      Tigers Saints game soon should be a ripper and a close one!…nah i'm just kidding myself, the only question in that game is, will they win by 50 or 100 points..lol
      Danger's been a pain this year, like an annoying relative you want to tell to pish off but can't cause they're family.

      • NEIL Demons Delight says:

        there could be a big in for the Saints Russty.. On the grape vine GATOR'S come out of retirement. .I reckon you and gat would do alright at the bookends NDD

    • DavidSA says:

      I said it before 66 that Dangerfields honeymoon period with the Cats is over… the cats also along with crap rucks also has crap rebounding defenders compared to the two years before

    • Bob says:

      I hear he's playing in the ruck today.

      • SC_Sixty6 says:

        Chris Scott is a Muppet and wouldn't surprise me. He's playing ruck. Rover. FF and kicking out from full back.

        • Russty_ says:

          ..and meanwhile, Geelong are the worst clearance side in the comp!..Danger needs to be pure mid..period, and Hawkins needs to do his job for a change, cats should ditch that spud for a reliable tall forward, he's just making up numbers most of the time, has maybe 1 good game in 10

          • Doc says:

            Read a herald sun article saying in his Brownlow year he played 80/20 mid/fwd. this year it's 60/40 which means he isn't getting any continuity during the game which I think affects his scores. He's also kicked less goals in the same amount of rounds this year compared to the Brownlow year.

    • Bob says:

      Wrong again! Fake News King.

  106. Gem says:

    I have to get one Premo this week in any line. Who would you get for the Bye structure?
    R12 – 12
    R13 – 13
    R14 – 12

  107. flogga says:

    is luke ryan worth it? im thinking of getting him or lloyd. ryan is tasty being 60k cheaper but is he good enough?

  108. theRealPod says:

    Good to see Menadue back on the MCG. Ah the memories..

  109. TheGreatBozza says:

    Seems most defenders not named Rory Laird will drop a poo game every now and then. I’m still confident Howe will average well and balance out the odd poor game with the big 120+

  110. Jack says:

    Any rookie priced ruckmen look like getting a game soon?
    Thinking I might struggle with cash generation through the byes a little, but I do have McInnerly milking away nicely @R3

    Mason Cox got off from his front on contact with Clownhead Johannisen with a $2000 fine, they realised he's just a big clumsy dufus.

    Tom Bellchambers, Rhys Stanley, Zac Smith, Callum Sinclair, Rory Lobb, Tom Hickey, Jordan Roughead, Tim English (arguably better than Sam Jacobs and Todd Goldstein at the moment too)

  118. Sage says:

    Ed Philips matching Dusty at half-time. We would have all expected this if we'd read the 'Hangover' article earlier in the preseason

  119. TOPHAWK1 says:

    That buffoon Billings is up to his old tricks again. Wait for it……..18SC at half time. Thank fark I punted his sorry arrse out of my side this week. What a sack sheit that bloke is.

  120. Marty says:

    Billings 18 pts to half time FML

  121. BadgerHoney7 says:

    Billings and Dusty OUCHHHHHH

  122. Shake_n_Bake_ says:

    Wow cant believe its come for me to start Henry over Billings!!

  123. Shake_n_Bake_ says:

    Might pick up Dusty after rd 14 as my M9!

  124. BrownlowBoy says:

    Dear Jack,

    I'm not even mad anymore. I paid over 500,000 for you at the beginning of the year, thinking you could deliver a 90+ average. Boy was I wrong. I expected you to be running through the midfield, pushing forward and kicking goals on that left boot of yours.

    Despite others trading you, I have kept faith. I stuck by you when you left spud score after spud score in my side, thinking you could turn it around. With an opening round score of 133, I thought you could take me to Supercoach glory. You led me to believe you were a premium. I had the choice between you and Toby McLean, if only I could turn back time. Every week, I've had hope. Hope, that you will turn it around. Hope that you will remember how to kick, and hope that you would not leave a massive dump in my team.

    Jack, you are absolutely useless. Soft, Scared and S***.

    I think it's time we went out separate ways.

    Regards, BB

    • theRealPod says:

      Has he got a Twitter account? Send that to him.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      I feel for you BB. I ran out of patience this week. Got rid of the snapper head. Turned him into Timothy Smith to salvage some meagre cash. I can now move on with peace of mind without that turd stinking the place out every week. Perhaps you should do the same, turn him into Austin or Smith this week. Wipe the crap off your hands and get it over and done with. Good luck BB.

      • BrownlowBoy says:

        Jeez TH, I was so close to sending him down to a rookie. Held because I don't want to go early on rookies. Might go to Buddy next week.

    • Marty says:

      The problem is every week I want to get rid of him, another problem, or a better option to improve the team happens. Your time will come BILLINGS, your time will come (insert evil laugh!)

  125. Sc_Wow says:

    Wonder what billings will be priced at next year

  126. Gem says:

    Buddy or Lloyd this week?

  127. Jack says:

    I have a rule where I don't pick premiums if I don't know what they look like.
    Is it time I either a) changed that rule, or
    b) googled Webster to see what he looks like.

  128. BrownlowBoy says:

    Rice seems like a good trade in option next week.

  129. allen says:

    nearly half stkildas list starts with the letter j I reckon, got 6 jacks playing today… that aught to be confusing

  130. DavidSA says:

    lots of SC points up for grabs with 3 players out early in the TigesvSaints game

  131. Russty_ says:

    What do ya reckon guys..who'll go better this week out of Guelfi and Spargo..can't use Higgin's score as he sucks!

  132. BadgerHoney7 says:

    billings what on earth was that snap

  133. BadgerHoney7 says:

    austin looks nice

  134. Russty_ says:

    Logan Austin's going pretty well at 3/4 time
    18 disposals..4 contested
    7 marks
    4 rebound 50's
    3 tackles
    7 one percenters
    1 clanger
    95%TOG
    88 SC points
    Pretty impressive, if he can back that up next week, he'll be a good pickup.

    • HumanBob says:

      That's a brilliant effort for 160k 3rd gamer Russty and, comes along just when I'm looking to cashout some def rookies. It looks suspiciously like more good luck for me.

      • Russty_ says:

        Hey Bob, he actually played 11 games in 2016 for Port too…only averaged 47 though..so not technically a rookie.
        I'll be keeping an eye on him next week, as I'm sure a lot of peeps will.

  135. Russty_ says:

    Good news everyone!…Billings has surpassed his 3 round average of 56, he's on 58 now and just took a mark and got a kick, could end up in the 60's..possibly 70's. 😉

  136. Connor says:

    Can't help but feel Champion Data have become revese-biased towards Jack Billings..
    Just took a Mark + Effective kick + another Goal Assist for only +5 SC in a tight game – makes sense…

  137. Neverweaken says:

    What happened to Reiwoldt? Might have to jump back on Caddy again. Even though I have tattooed on my brain Caddy Never again!!

  138. TommyC99 says:

    Field Guelfi or Henry?

  139. Tyruddanaut says:

    How many points do you get for an uncontested tackle?

  140. BadgerHoney7 says:

    so had Dusty as VC – who do I chuck the C on. Danger v Blues, Titch v WCE or Gawn v Sauce Jacobs

  141. TommyC99 says:

    Take Billings 70 or go Henry?

  142. Finnius says:

    Take phillips 57 or go spargo?

  143. DavidSA says:

    ummm Witherden?

  144. Defying_Madness says:

    Might have been a tad wrong about Lloyd. Urgh this hurts I have Laird, Yeo, Simpson, Sicily, Ryan in defence and the last slot is for Hurley.
    Might have to move Sicily forward and pass on Gray or Walters.

  145. Nuggety says:

    Should I take 68 from Rice or field Mirra?

  146. BloodyFranklin says:

    Ronke>Buddy

  147. Shake_n_Bake_ says:

    Congrats to Heeney 2nd qtr 5 touches 2 goals 1 contested mark no clearances = 61pts 🙂

  148. Russty_ says:

    Wonder if Witherden's trying to play through an injury ?…he's really stinking it up lately, the last few weeks.

  149. Noah says:

    Gawn or Danger Captian?

  150. Jack says:

    Don't wanna sound bitter but I started with Jake Lloyd last year and was always disappointed how his SC scoring would always be lower than his DT. Whilst he was getting alot of the ball I put it down to uncontested footy.
    But these last 2 weeks something different has happened. His SC is huge compared to DT. So what's he doing differently? Cos, he has always been a good accumulator that uses it pretty well.

  151. hedski says:

    Hmmm, Guelfi or ZGL at F6 tonight??

  152. HumanBob says:

    Good
    McLean, Richards, Webster, Steven, Stef, Heeney
    Bad
    Bont, Buddy,

  153. SC_Sixty6 says:

    Gray out for Robinson was in the end a shark move! Rocky taking too many points off gray. Satisfied!

  154. SC_Sixty6 says:

    Feel sorry for the people that took the advice about Sinclair. Forget who mentioned it but against the top ruckman he really is useless. Especially around the ground. Not to mention a shocking bye.

  155. BadgerHoney7 says:

    Will Danger get tagged by Curnow??? Is that the only risk with chucking Danger C

  156. HumanBob says:

    8,000 with Robbo will be very happy

  157. Tyruddanaut says:

    Ed Phillips (57) or Andy Brayshaw?

  158. Defying_Madness says:

    Bugger off Henry

  159. Keenbutclueless says:

    Didn’t see the Lions game. I saw on AFL Fantasy that Andrews scored 44. In SC a 91. Surprising difference. Anyone see the game? Thoughts?

    • seen_burns says:

      Done alot of spoils, and was influential down back

    • Russty_ says:

      The difference is, in Sc it matters what they do with the ball once they get a hold of it…that other game is a joke.

      • AndyP says:

        Crap rusty nail. People like you who have nothing to do except watch/comment on footy whereby others have a life over the weekend. The beauty of DT is that you pick you team for the weekend and leave it. SC is dying. Look at the stats. 450+K a handful of years ago and now less than 200K. Understand. Do you get it?

        • Russty_ says:

          AFL Fantasy is a different game from DT , different scoring system, I've got plenty to do by the way.
          I'm ranked 1400 or something in AFL Fantasy out of 135000, and I'm not even trying, and my team is shit lol.
          Maybe confirm what game you're even talking about before you go online and start abusing someone about it.
          You seem to have nothing else to do on a weekend except attack people online for their opinions…maybe you need to get a life?

        • DavidC says:

          DT has only got 12K players???

  160. Russty_ says:

    Tim Kelly 2 points in the first quarter yeah!
    Get a move on spud.

  161. HumanBob says:

    TKelly to a non-playing DPP might have been a great trade 2 point qrtr from my M8 he might struggle to match Bont. Oh well almost everybody has him on field

    • SC_Sixty6 says:

      Oh no! You didn't keep Kelly surely Bobby? Was gonna lose cash….he had to go. Silly mistake. Oh well I guess you can't fluke a darling trade every week. Bugger.

      • HumanBob says:

        I don't need to trade in a Darling every week, I've had a different rookie tonning up for the past 4 weeks and the other prems that I bought in apart from Darling are Webster, Yeo and Sicily. I kid around and say that I'm lucky but the truth is I'm better at this game than you are.

        • SC_Sixty6 says:

          Hahahhaa. Flog city you are. Jesus turn it up. No body likes you arrogant prick.

          • HumanBob says:

            You're an abusive little man when your true value is exposed aren't you Troll? You hold yourself out to be an expert but the only actual advice that you've posted has all been rubbish you don't contribute anything to this community other than vitriol, fake news, obvious dribble, and crap advice. these are a some of your rare comments that aren't a direct attack on somebody else”get rid of stephenson he wont generate cash or points.”=C2=A0 -He's since increased by 130k had 4×80+ and a 113 ” Fritsch isn't getting a game anytime soon”. – He played the following week and has 85+ three times and increased by 140k since your advice”Keep hibberd you'd be silly to trade him” enough said”Nank is definitely going to be a late out” “I would get danger in now. His BE is 154 and…..he will only lose around 10k…..”=C2=A0 -He's since lost about 100k “WARNING!!!!=C2=A0 Sicily! His avg may look good but think about whe= n he misses what your cover will be and how many points you'll be missing out on without a reliable player”. – You are advising against getting Sicily? I also found your predicted top 12 defenders list from a couple of weeks ago Laird, Simpson,Yeo, Hurley all pretty safe cookie cutter selections then you have Rance, Savage, Hibberd,Ryan, McGovern, Hurn, Lloyd, Howe It doesn't matter if you think nobody likes me loser, at least I'm trolling fake news and bad advice.

            • SC_Sixty6 says:

              Bla bla bla. Quoting me out of context buddy. Clearly some of my posts are messing around but you can't deviate from your approach in life. Mr serious. #1 I'll call you from now on. Or I should refer to you as Roosters brother. Both sound like each other. Huge posts for what? Your own egotistical pleasure. Pointless!

              • HumanBob says:

                No. The huge post was to remind you that you have no value to this community and most of us would like you to go somewhere else

                • SC_Sixty6 says:

                  • HumanBob says:

                    That maybe be true but my handful of quotes and support Trump your Truckloads of abuse and bad advice. I'm sure everybody will be a lot happier when you realise that you are hated at this website

            • theRealPod says:

              It does get boring HB. I stopped reading his 'tips' awhile back.

              • HumanBob says:

                But he gets so upset so quickly when he's treated in kind. I find it hilarious and can't help but give him a poke every now and again to set him off.

          • RockJeynolds says:

            If you run a Poll I'm confident that you'd find out that you are the one that nobody likes. You're troll go away FFS

            • Russty_ says:

              No one likes nameless, accountless trolls either Rock, you only ever seem to show up when you want to attack someone or take someone's side.
              I'm not taking anyone's side, it's just an observation I've noticed.

              • RockJeynolds says:

                There is no such thing as a Jock Reynolds account so we are all accountless Russty_
                I'm sure Russty_is the name on your birth certificate otherwise calling me nameless would be hypocritical, borderline trollish.

                I was just supporting one of the few who has stood up to that troll.
                Weren't you banned from the site for trolling with him? Feels like you're doing it again, maybe you were banned because you and him had the same ISP?

                • Russty_ says:

                  People with accounts aren't accountless Rock, and they're accountable for their comments/ trolling, whatever they choose to do because there's a record everyone can view.
                  Russty is the name on my Birth certificate actually, I'm not ashamed of posting in my own name, or having a registered intense debate account.
                  I was blocked from the site for a few days for expressing my true feelings towards a whole group of gutless no name / account trolls who were attacking registered members..en masse, it was a result of auto flagging certain words unacceptable on this site. Fair enough , I accept that, but I wasn't banned by anyone in Admin.
                  And as for your last ditch effort at discrediting me…no I've never impersonated anyone or had the same ISP as anyone else, I've only ever been myself with one account.
                  How about you?

                  • SC_Sixty6 says:

                    Don't worry about him Russty. He epitomises nameless and troll just by looking at his name and his negativity towards me.

                    Doesn't have his own identity so shames Jock Reynolds name by replacing the J&R around the wrong way.

    • Russty_ says:

      You two need to agree to disagree on everything and just avoid eachother if possible, and not bait eachother.
      Just for the sake of keeping a relative peace, best thing you could do is rival eachother and let the results of that do the talking.
      The final winner is the winner of the shit slinging festival for this year lol

      • SC_Sixty6 says:

        I've tamed it down Russty but this flog thinks he's god's gift to women. Posts to the community asking questions and then dismisses everything and talks negatively about people's responses. He actually reminds me of rooster. Deadset flog. Talks like he is #1 yet I'm pretty positive he's over 600 points behind #1.

    • SC_Sixty6 says:

      I'm sorry about your OCD Bobby. No need to take your anger out over innocent posts. We know your never wrong, just ask yourself.

    • Wedge says:

      Tkelly to rocky would've been better than to a non player

  162. Shake_n_Bake_ says:

    cashed in on Kelly this week for Phillips very early but so far not bad.

  163. Russty_ says:

    That's a shame for Ratatouille…he was looking like a decent player too..and backup Ruckman.

  164. cashcows says:

    Good: Traded out Kelly
    Bad: Traded out Henry

  165. Holty01 says:

    Just one of these seasons.
    I bought in Franklin today and traded out Henry for him.

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      You're doing as well as me Holty. On paper it was a good trade, although I had been saying to people to wait a week on Buddy.

  166. Shake_n_Bake_ says:

    Started Henry over Gulify Danger as vc need as many pts l can accumulate! All the teams im playing are flying.

  167. Defying_Madness says:

    6 frees against Cripps are you kidding me?

  168. Keenbutclueless says:

    No guts no glory. Was looking at Kreuzer as a sneakily VC choice. Went safety first with Danger. Will probably end up ok. But far more exciting when you nail a speculative pick!

  169. Ja191 says:

    goddamn smith is a tackling machine

  170. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Taranto looking like another spud score, served me well, think I'll have to hold him and probably treat him as a premo

  171. Defying_Madness says:

    Sorry for ruining Cripps community

  172. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    Does anybody else find that any game (regardless of score or margin) played at spotless is incredibly dull and boring? Maybe its the lack of crowd but i always hate watching games played there

  173. Defying_Madness says:

    Guelfi absolutely robbed had a huge last quarter and got like 10 points

  174. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Danger VC. Locked and loaded. Hello Olango!

    Now, Guelfi and ZGL are still making cash and scoring points!

  175. BadgerHoney7 says:

    Shaw, Simmo, Smith, Danger – huge
    Zerrett, Cripps – average
    Tim Kelly – poor

  176. Crowboy94 says:

    I swear SC is the only thing keeping me interested in AFL. Game tonight was terrible, skill and umpiring.

  177. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    Rookie revenge.🙊
    Boy oh boy wowee!!

    Last week traded doodee scored 91
    Last week traded holman scored 119
    This week traded henry scored 100

    Mind you did allow me to bring in yeo and lloyd. So not all bad and hopefully pays off in the long run…

    So if my form is anything to go by kelly is a motza to go large next week. 🙄

  178. Defying_Madness says:

    Going huge this week on 1436 with Titch, Yeo, Sicily, Mirra, Oliver, Gawn, Spargo, Fritsch, Laird, Ryan and Fyfe left to go. Hoping I can push 2500+
    How is everyone else going?

  179. Ahmad rubas says:

    take dow score of 72 over spargo?

  180. JohnDJ59 says:

    What do people think of Heppell as a M8 POD.

    • Russty_ says:

      He's going alright John, would prefer Gaff though.

      • JohnDJ59 says:

        Hey Russty, at the moment my top 7 mids are Titch, Fyfe, Danger, Oliver, Dusty, Cogs, Pendles, so one POD there in Pendles, I did have Bont or Crouch down for M8 , but Bont is a bit up and down and Crouch a bit injury prone atm, also had Heppell on the watchlist for a bit of a laugh, but he seems to be going alright scoring around the 95 – 110, a bit like Pendles really.

  181. Rocksta_ says:

    Is everybody going well this week? I’m projected to get over 2520 so am thinking there’s a lot of good scores out there?

  182. Jeffrey says:

    Take Dangers VC score or roll the dice on Fyfe

  183. BoltonsBlues says:

    Best 2 trades for the year for me, Finlayson and Kelly out for Danger and Simpson, gotta risk it for the biscuit, but the bullet and traded Kelly out and it may prove to be a good move, 1395 with 9 and C left, hopefully can improve my 873 rank

    • SC_Sixty6 says:

      Just had a look at your team Bolton! I only saw 8 left to play with gawn C. Anywho it must of been a trade you did this week.

      Would you believe it that 25 SC points seperate 160 spots……you are 25 points ahead of me. Crazy.

      • BoltonsBlues says:

        I don’t know what you can see but I moved Gray to the field in place of Spargo so I can get Henry’s 100
        1295 before Henry with 10 players left
        1395 after Henry with 9 players left
        Sicily, NicNat, Laird, Ryan Titch, Doedee, Fristch, Gawn(C), Fyfe left to play

        873 ranking leaves me 700odd points behind the leader, the byes can change the whole landscape of the game, good luck!

        • SC_Sixty6 says:

          Nice in for a good score then. I'm 1380 with 9 premo and 2 rookie to go. We have gawn, fyfe, Sicily, Titch, Laird, Ryan the same. Then I have 4 premo and 2 rook as well.

  184. deeman says:

    Heath Shaw's role an absolute fantasy footy wet dream tonight
    Playing loose man in defence all night and must've played on from about 10 kick-ins!!!

  185. SC_Sixty6 says:

    There's your answer as to Smith being a keeper…..

  186. TheGreatBozza says:

    ZGL is just being spared the axe next week.
    More than likely going Finlayson and Kelly to Rockliff and Simpson. Will help with the later byes where I’m cutting it fine

  187. Octa says:

    Earlier, I made a positive comment about Dreamteam and it was deleted – hmmm. SC insecurity! What about freedom of speech?

    • Russty_ says:

      I doubt if these guys deleted it Octa, you can talk about whatever fantasy game floats your boat here, unless there was swearing or some kind of politically incorrect shit in there?
      Try re-wording it, sometimes it gets auto-deleted for no reason.

  188. Stupid Coach says:

    Do I take Danger's VC score or stick with Gawn as captain?

    Do I take Phillips score of 57 or take a punt with Spargo?

  189. DANGER1VDUSTY2 says:

    LOSER AFL COACHES ARE KILLING THESE GAMES!!!
    Unless its a close game most of the games have been boring. Handball happy garbage and no one down the ground to kick the ball to except the opposition for a direct turnover. Clowns at the AFL will no doubt make more rule changes to try and combat the LOW SCORING.
    Supercoach and betting is the only reason to watch most of these games.

  190. Optimist says:

    My Kelly to Franklin trade got me an extra 3 points. BOOM BABY!

  191. TIGESB2B says:

    Alright! Just put the E on C. Dixon to get a better score than my playing E, Ratugolea!!

  192. nvol says:

    1401 from 8 played – projected to get around 2550

  193. Simon says:

    If I put Robbie gray on field, and put Spargo on my bench. Then put the captain on gray.. will I get Spargos score, keeping in mind for some reason I had keefe as emergency also and he didn’t play so got a 0, I will still get Spargo emergency will I?

  194. JugHead says:

    Went to the Geelong v Carlton game last night. The preseason hype about the cats midfield is a long time ago. There are bright spots, but sorry cats fans, our premiership window is firmly shut.

    • theRealPod says:

      Hey JugHead, it's only mid season and the Cats won while playing ordinary footy. Bombers loss had me worried but the Bombers won again v GWS so shows form can go through up and down patches. Glass half full. When the whips are cracking towards end of season I wouldn't worry as the cream will rise to the top.

      • BrownlowBoy says:

        I was there too. We looked garbage. Look at the Bulldogs season. Played 4 good games in a row come finals time and won the flag. It's such an even year this year, anyone can knock off anyone.

        • theRealPod says:

          Footy in general is garbage atm. All this defensive crap is ruining it for the spectators. I'm not usually a rule change kind of guy but I wouldn't complain if something was done to eradicate the rolling maul game.

          I'm still confident the Cats can challenge this season, with so much talent available (sad about Ratugolea going down) we only have to find our mojo to be contenders. It'd be nice to have a decent ruck option to feed Danger, Selwood and Gaz, which would of course give Hawkins, Menzel and co. better delivery. Also our backline could do with Hendo back. Go Cats.

  195. Sully321 says:

    do i take kelly's 57 or go with spargo?

  196. Derek says:

    This week seems to be going ok for most. I can see some massive scores building for some. However, There is plenty of SC relevant players playing today. I hope we are still smiling at the end of the day. Good luck everyone.

  197. Jack says:

    Any Geelong fans want to enlighten me on the chances of Ryan Abbott replacing Ratulegua with Rhys Stanley becoming more of a fwd/2nd ruck?
    I rookie ruck playing during the byes would be great, especially from that bye round and I'm starting to lose faith on Darcy Cameron being named.
    PS: I wish Ratulegua all the best in his recovery in what looked a horrific injury.

  198. Whitey says:

    Hahaha, story of my season. Held Billings for so long (stupid), finally gave up and moved early on Franklin(needed to do other trades next week), and the Billings out scores him by 10. No one to blame but myself. Love this game, lol.

    • Jack says:

      It's a long season though, sometimes you have to have a look at the big picture. Billings had to go, and Buddy should be a top6 forward from here on in you would think.

  199. Sam_01 says:

      Your choice Sam but a 68 is not bad. Mirra will see a lot of the ball today, not sure how he'll handle the big WC forwards. I have Mirra so hoping he ton's up.

    • redherringfc says:

      68 is pretty good, but if by “real close head to head” you mean, “I’m just behind” then roll the dice and go with Mirra.

      Does your opponent have Mirra? Again, if you’re in front then just match. If just behind, take the 68.

      All but 1 of Mirras scores are over 70.

  200. Ja191 says:

    No late changes yeo’s in if anyone was wondering

  201. BrownlowBoy says:

    Yeo is not a late out and is playing.

  202. Fearthebeard says:

    Can someone just confirm for me as I’m in tight game.

    Vc in danger. If I put Gawn on bench as emergency and c on suns crossley I get danger as captain and gawn as emergency?

  203. BadgerHoney7 says:

    need yeo and nic nat to lift, happy with all my hawks players (titch, jom, sicily)

  204. Steeeve says:

    No standing room this week? I have been sitting and panicking all weekend long!

  205. BrownlowBoy says:

    The Seed is out.

  206. Steeeve says:

    Crows playing like a team of Billingses

  207. Corey says:

    Take Phillips 59 or field Brayshaw

  208. DavidSA says:

    Hogan back to life!

  209. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    On what universe can doodee be the top scorer at half time?

    Gawn is squishing sauce, giving him a bath with just about every hitout going to a team mates advantage. Bog closely followed by lever.

    The "bull" looks good in his second game looks right at home with the big boys.

    Liking the look of your demons NDD. look sharp, b sharp.

  210. Russty_ says:

    Apparently Fyfe is getting tagged by Jacobs..50 points in the first, what a gun!

  211. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Traded Henry and Hibberd this week :/, at least my trade ins T.Smith and Luke Ryan are doing alright. Also, went with C Gawn over Fyfe because I was scared of the tag, they are almost matched in score two quarters apart! Has Jacobs started on Neale? Surely he rolls onto Fyfe? Did it last week with Ward and Shiel.

  212. Defying_Madness says:

    Urgh I fielded Spargo over T Smith

  213. JohnDJ59 says:

    Call out to Hedski and TopHawk, we had a good battle in Rat Pack and Guns and Rookies, my two donuts really stuffed me up, I was surprised I got that close.

    • hedski says:

      Cheers JD, looking like my best score for the year, haven't cracked 2300 so far (having a mare of a year also). Pretty happy with my Luke Ryan inclusion this week, on 80 at half time.
      Those donuts suck mate, you'll bounce back 👍

      • JohnDJ59 says:

        You are looking good Hedski, you would have beaten me even if I hadn't had the donuts, I guess I should have been more to the point in the post it was really just TopHawk I was close with, that could end up a draw.

    • Lazza says:

      Black Flag ? Great score (so far) with 2 donuts.. well clear of me with a healthy squad.. though I will be booking some in for heart scan this week !!!

      • JohnDJ59 says:

        Hey Lazza what is your team called, I'm only winning three of my league games, so I should be able to find it.

        • Russty_ says:

          Hey John, I think it's Raw Tigers..Larry, Lazza 🙂

          • JohnDJ59 says:

            Yes just found him, he's in Rat Pack as well, so I'm not actually playing him.

          • Lazza says:

            Hey guys, yeh Raw Tigers .. finished much better than I thought .. still lost .. but clocked up 465 points with my last 3 players to land on 2305. Weird thing is I’m doing ok in my cash leagues … seems it’s my turn to be that annoying player who gets the wins on the back of others ‘down’ weeks.
            Still haven’t gotten over 2014 in one league where I had the 2nd highest number of points and didn’t even make the 8. There were 6 weeks where I had the 2nd highest score for the round and lost …
            My turn 🙂

  214. BadgerHoney7 says:

    so I chucked gawn with the C, who is on 90 at 3qt time (not too bad) oh wait fyfe is only 15 points behind him at Quarter time

    • nickgonzalez771 says:

      If it makes you feel any better I took the C off Fyfe and put it on Gawn this morning, and my trades really didn't work out (not terrible, but not great) choosing to get rid of Henry and Murphy for L Ryan and Phillips when I could have gotten rid of T Kelly instead and grabbed Lloyd.

      • hedski says:

        Ryan's looking the goods Nick, 80 at the half.

        • nickgonzalez771 says:

          Thank god for that, still looking to get Lloyd in ASAP though. Mostly kicking myself at the cash that will still be made on Henry and the cash lost by Kelly. Hindsight is always 20/20 and this is definitely not the end of the world! Thanks for the update Hedski. Still on track for 2300 I hope.

  215. HumanBob says:

    I'm probably due some bad luck.5:24 and I've just found out that Seedsman ended his season in the warmup today, probably a bit late to make a corrective trade. Oh well they're the perils of a supercoach who also has a life, I'll still do OK and remain well within the required rank.

  216. Holty01 says:

    as a Carlton supporter im actually excited going to work tomorrow. After copping it from Crow supporters last week for Carltons effort, payback will be grand

    • Russty_ says:

      Yeah what a shellacking!…not much energy out of the Crows today, look like they don't wanna be there.

    • Whatyasmokin says:

      Yet Carlton only managed 45 points themselves but I spose that's a win around there.

      • Ahmad rubas says:

        we dominated geelong without our captain and a top 3 player in our very young list im defintely happy with the performance

        • Whatyasmokin says:

          Fair enough to be happy, but no you guys lost by 6 goals that isnt dominated. Both teams are average this year. Crows also have a fair few injuries lol. Walker, Sloane, B Crouch, Knight, McGovern, Seed, Smith and it probably goes on. Im not making excuses the crows performance was poor. But theres a difference between accepting or glorifying losses that's not a winning culture and gloating either way is poor form, as the crows fans did to Holty in the first place, its pathetic and not the sort of thing I'd do personally. Cheers.

          • Ahmad rubas says:

            maybe dominated is too far but we defintely were the better team and im not accepting the losses just happy to see the effort shown by the players and the good performance. i dont mind the gloating if its done in good taste but yeah i agree with you no need for it and to be fair adelaide have had the worst run with injuries in the competition this season

  217. BrownlowBoy says:

    Fritsch may just be a keeper.

  218. BrownlowBoy says:

    Tim Smith to be heavily traded in next week!

  219. Bells says:

    Macrae you fat lazy campaigner. How am I supposed to win a supercoach round if your captain scores don't cover for my otherwise shitty selections?

  220. Rocksta_ says:

    I need 55 from Fyfe in the second half to hit 2500.
    How’s everybody else going this week?

  221. JohnDJ59 says:

    Changing my mind at the last moment and trading in Howe instead of Ryan, just because of bloody round 14 is really hurting right now.

    • Whatyasmokin says:

      Too many let one round dictate their decisions for a whole season, doesn't make sense to me.

      • JohnDJ59 says:

        I agree smokin, it's never worried me before, not sure why it did this time around, I normally just go after the players I want and don't even look at the bye rounds.

    • Sandyf62 says:

      A real bad call there JD, you missed out on a nice price rise and a lot more points, It may hurt me come the byes, but I'm just getting in who I think will be better for my team in the long run. The Long Run by the Eagles is now playing.

    • Sandyf62 says:

      Hey JD I noticed you changed your avatar to keep the faith, not a bad idea, think about that next time you even start thinking about changing your mind on a trade at the last moment.

      • JohnDJ59 says:

        Hey Sandy, you don't have to dig it in, I'm cross enough with myself as it is, just looking at Howe in my team instead of Ryan, is making me feel sick.

  222. Finnius says:

    Michael walters to be the most traded in player this week. Hurts my POD but glad he has had one good week before everyone jumps on.

  223. Connor says:

    Plan was to bring in Walters next week – looking like going close to his huge B/E as well – but now T.Smith has come out and scored well twice so my question is – do I skip on Bailey Rice and grab Smith and Walters, or double downgrade, lose some points but build that warchest for Walters and Danger the week after???

  224. Tyruddanaut says:

    Two of Dusty, Simpson and Walters in for me next week

  225. Sam_01 says:

    How we looking everyone 2359 with Fyfe to play should climb me a good Few ranks might clear 2500 this week!

  226. Marty says:

    Walters will get close to his BE of 157. Pity but he will still be a cheap option for those people who don't have him.

  227. Holty01 says:

    Just looked at my league match and im 159 ahead of my opponent with 1 to play. Thought i had it won until i looked at fanfooty and saw what Walters is on. You got to be joking me

  228. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    need Ryan and Fyfe to combine for 292 to reach the magical 2500 (have only reached it once in my 3 years of playing this wonderful game) which isn't looking out of the equation at this point.

  229. BadgerHoney7 says:

    2454 with a last quarter to go – come on Walters and Fyfe bring it home!!!

  230. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    A bit going on in the happy place

    I am playing pieman we both have fyfe i have ryan.
    About 35 behind.
    Both will go close to 2500.
    Might be just short.

    Cmon Ryan big qtr mate!

    • INPieman says:

      Close battle. Sorry my man

      • TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

        Yep Ryan gave u a run for your money
        A couple of nice scores – your man grundy was just enough to get u the chockies.

        Both with Gray sitting on the pine. Noice.😁

        • INPieman says:

          Let's hope Gray heads back to the guts. Did some numbers when Nic Nat got suspended & worked out Grundy was a good addition as a top liner. Recently he reminds me of Dean Cox. And he's getting better

  231. Davo says:

    Got Smith early, so I can risk getting Rockliff for Kelly to go through the byes and get best def rookie which I think might be Rice this week.

  232. Rocksta_ says:

    You could put Jesus Christ on Fyfe and he wouldn’t be able to stop him.

  233. theRealPod says:

    Highlight of the day? Fyfe & Walters, the Dees big win? Not for me.. Captain Underpants at Marvel stadium!

  234. hedski says:

    Ah crap just knocked off my last beer and there's still half a qtr left.
    I hate dry-watching footy.

  235. Rocksta_ says:

    I reckon par is around 2350 this week. I’ve seen a lot of big scores floating around.
    Might make Fyfe ‘perma-cap’ after this week (I’ll even loophole him in his bye round)

  236. BadgerHoney7 says:

    scored 2512 – how did everyone else go?

  237. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    fareout if i had fyfe C wouldve had 2600+, not gonna complain with a 2500 though lol. Should see my rank of 2500 go up a bit.

  238. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    Bit under par with 2,300 this week, but i beat my dad in my cash league, so no complaints here! How did everyone else do?

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      2294 for me this week. Not unhappy, without being excited. Will lose most of my leagues this week, but my side is bye ready with an almost full bench of rookies playing going into the byes. The Tophawks are building nicely.

  239. Marty says:

    I feel like a failure with only 2468…

  240. Rivo says:

    Stoked with 2400 & 4/4 league wins. Though I’m seeing some big scores around 2500. What’s likely to be par this round?

  241. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Fritsch to Walters and Kelly to Pendlebury
    Or
    Taranto (don't see premo output with Kelly back) to Walters and Kelly to any mid not Danger, Macrae, Fyfe, Dusty, Titch, Cripps and Cogs.
    ?

  242. Ahmad rubas says:

    kelly down to 401k

  243. INPieman says:

    Too many f*ck wits on this site these days. Hence why I am rarely interested. 66 & wow & the rest of the negative wan*kers go get some appropriate medication. You are no better than anyone. This was a site for help & fun discussion. Now it's populated by too many tools who think they are some sort of god. Lek & Patch do something about your site. It's shit & full of keyboard warriors without faces

    • BrownlowBoy says:

      Agree Pieman, how'd you go this week mate?

      • INPieman says:

        Not too bad 2485. You BB? At least your a good bloke. Never seen anything but constructive advice from you. And that's what a MANAGED community should be about. Take note administrators. SOMEONE needs to speak up!

        • BrownlowBoy says:

          Just ticked over 2400 with Robbie Gray sitting on the pine. Happy with that, considering my previous form.

          Cheers for the compliment, just trying my best to help the community. I know I'm not the best Supercoacher but I give it a crack. Jock and the community have given me so much wisdom and advice over my time here, just try to give some back if I can.

    • zerowins says:

      Never a truer word spoken

    • Ham says:

      Biggest truth I’ve ever heard

    • SC_Sixty_6 says:

      Well said

    • Sc_Wow says:

      Where was this comment last week after the huge post having a dig at me by the community. Double standards are a joke

    • dontblushbaby says:

      Agree Pieman , we need each post validated of who's posting what and that it matches their email address to the site

    • SC_Sixty6 says:

      Get off it pieman. Last week a huge negative post directed at wow was posted….was apparently called banter……didn't see you then cause you're too busy on your knees when it's ppl you like. Double standards.

      Also stop whinging and grow some balls. This isn't your site and you don't call the shots.

      • neil demonsdelight says:

        Listen Pieman is a respected member of this forum and has been nothing but good for us all. IT would do you well to remember this . right he doesn't call the shots What about it LEK as Kennedy once said DO SOMETHING

      • DavidSA says:

        Why do you keep telling everyone to grow some?

        • SC_Sixty6 says:

          Because people are sensitive Dave. And the double standards here make me sick.

          We come in and talked the talk and have walked the walk so far. Sure if we spoke sh*t with no substance I can understand. But that isn't the case.

      • INPieman says:

        66 take a look in the mirror. Your an angry man with many personal issues. There is no need to take that out on people looking for friendly advice. Seriously go & sort yourself out

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Agreed Pieman. I noticed you have been posting on here less recently. It was me that had a "crack" at SC Wow last week which resulted in a 75 message thread. Let's see if the talkers can in fact become walkers. If not, they are subject to the mercy of long term posters on this site.

      • Sc_Wow says:

        Hawk you’re no where close to being a walker so not sure why you’re talking. I’ll cop it from ppl better than me but a guy with a 7k rank is a joke

        • Valens_FC says:

          Seriously mate this routine of “your rank is so low you’re a joke” is way past use by date. A rank doesn’t define a person and doesn’t make them any less entitled to an opinion.

          I Like your SC insights and I appreciate you sharing your team’s fortunes but I think you need to consider a different way of engaging with people you don’t agree with. So many different ways you could have reacted to Hawk’s post last week.

      • Sc_Wow says:

        Actually make that just inside the top 10k lol

      • INPieman says:

        Yeah TH. Glad you did. Just another tool tyring to make himself feel better by having a crack at people. The site needs a no flog policy. I'm sure 66 & Wow (we are amazing) are real named Toby & James

    • Dogsdik says:

      Well said Pieman. I’ve always read helpful and constructive advice from you on this site the past couple of years. I’ve had to read alot of yellow dick syndrome this year.

    • BadgerHoney7 says:

      well spoken pieman, at least theres one bloke that is able to speak his mind. plus you always give CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM not just NEGATIVE and non helpful feedback, like some do

    • theRealPod says:

      Well said INP and good on ya for speaking up.

    • Marty says:

      I agree Pieman. Constructive advice is required without egotism and insecurity. No one is better than anyone else and really only one person has bragging rights; the person taking the 50k home. We want to grow the site with informative opinions and make everyone feel welcome.

    • The Flying Dutchman says:

      100% agree – I'm not a regular poster but a regular reader, but this year I have hardly bothered to post for the very reason Pieman outlined.

      • INPieman says:

        No worries guys. I've had it with the trolls. I have young children & have concern with cyber bullying & the detriment it will cause families in the future. It needs to be a bigger issue. And it needs to happen NOW!

    • Valens_FC says:

      Agree with sentiment but think a bit harsh on Lek and Patch…. they have made efforts to support all the community including engaging with wow and 66. I’m also sure this ain’t their full time job, not realistic that they monitor every comment.

      But couldn’t agree more that the belittling of others because of their rank or because they’ve got a few whacky selections in their teams is totally unnecessary.

      Differences in teams, all the weird and wonderful strategies that everyone here employs is what makes the site great. A sad day when a less experienced coach or one on a bad run feels that instead of getting help and support here, they are going to get mocked and abused. It’s only a game ffs.

      • INPieman says:

        If you want to sell advertising Valens you need to make sure your audience is well scoped. Who would want to shell out dollars in this environment. Pay attention to your market before you try to sell it

    • Boris_Baconbeer says:

      And we want more beer!

    • Connor says:

      Have noticed that a few of the regulars of years past have disappeared this year – largely since the comments section turned to shit. Time to clean it up IMO

    • Matho says:

      Completely agree Pieman. That is one reason SC is dying.

  244. Score says:

    Someone, somewhere has got the biggest score we've seen in supercoach ever.

    I got 2416 but I feel like there will be 2500s this week

    2286 with hurley and gray out and a donut on field, not bad all things considered.

    Hey Neil, l played you in 3 leagues this weekend l got over the line by 47 thanks to L Ryan! Im sure you would be happy with your Demons thou!

    • neil demonsdelight says:

      just about to write to congratulate yourself and TRIGG who I also played more than once Both got me well done to you both and you are right dees looking good.Hard decisions this week might take Wow's advice and keep SHAW. Wow certainly knows his fantasy .Hard to go past Smith he's a real find Got to make the finals in Cazaly and Happy Place but you two are making it hard cheers fellas and thanks for the competition going to make me go harder cheers NDD

      • Shake_n_Bake_ says:

        Only 1st loss in Cazaly Neil im the one that need the wins! I think there were 6 teams over 2500 in my league very tuff competition. Should see Cazaly go up l think. Im looking at Smith & Rice this week.

      • TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

        Thanks NDD.

        Planning a couple of big moves next couple of weeks.

        Glad i went early on the bull
        He will be great over the byes.

        • Browncow says:

          Thought I had a sniff with Gray missing from your team. The Bull and Ryan put paid to that! Very nice score in the end.

          • TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

            Thanks mate

            Its the pods that can make or break ya.

            Like most community leagues cazaly has some fierce competitors and some crazy strong teams.
            Ranked 44 says it all …

  248. Nick says:

    Who should i trade in? Westhoff/Rice or Sicily/Smith.

  249. Pod says:

    Cant believe cripps scored 97, what a beast with 7 FK against and 11 clangers = 4*7=24 and 4+11=44 could have been 68 points higher wow must have next year 100%

  250. JohnDJ59 says:

    I was going to do a 1 up 1 down this coming week, but won't be able to afford it now, so thinking a double downgrade, either Rice and Smith and have a donut in defence next week or Rice and Ridley and no donut but less cash generation.

    • BrownlowBoy says:

      Where is the donut coming from john?

      • JohnDJ59 says:

        Hi BB, I was assuming that since I had two donuts in defence this weekend, if I only brought in one defender I would still have one donut, but if Hurley finally plays next week I should be alright only bringing in one defender, but I still wouldn't have any cover in defence.

  251. DavidSA says:

    So it's finally happened
    The whole community has turned on Wow and 66
    I am staying nueltral and taking no sides in this
    It would be stupid of me to say anything against them
    My rank is not good enough for Wow for him to bother and I don't have the genetics to grow some balls for 66 to put in his mouth

  252. Nick says:

    Go early on Austin? How does he look onfield?

  253. Defying_Madness says:

    What’s Dangers BE at? Think I have to wait until his bye and hope he doesn’t increase a lot. Also rice or Ridley?

  254. SC_Sixty6 says:

    Lockout is over. Where are we all ranked?

  255. Sc_Wow says:

    Tophawk ended up with 2285 and a new ranking of 9916

    Move over mate, you are slowing down and you are being overtaken.

    The silence is deafening………….

  256. Brissy bombers says:

    Ranked third for the round with 2671.. stoked!!! But oh what could have been….
    Moved up from 1700th to 405th as well. After a slow start I'm in a good spot at the minute

  257. DavidSA says:

    feels good to chop off dead wood
    Murphy to Rice
    Barry to Rockliff

    • Whatyasmokin says:

      I'm grabbing Rocky and Walters for a Paltry 800 odd grand. Scoring potential is huge and Rocky will go to M9 if necessary!

  258. HumanBob says:

    Wow Luck just can't keep it's sticky nose out of my supercoach this year. With a donut, Bont, Kelly and Fisher I expected to have my worst round of the year and rank below 100,000 for the week and maybe drop 5,000 in overall rankings but no. More heroic efforts from rookies blunted the damage, sc 66 will be heartbroken.
    Round rank was only 47,366 but I only dropped 1116 places overall.
    Having already made up 30,000 ranking places once this season I'm feeling quite relieved, I'll make up those places over the byes.

    • Sc_Wow says:

      Only 1116 places!? Weren’t you giving it to me for dropping 8 places? Lol
      Like you I can jump right back up there. Good luck to you

  259. KSinny says:

    Guys I have 17 trades left atm should I..

    1. Trade Kelly to Tim Smith via DPP and then Henry to Walter's leaving me with $338k.

    Or

    2. Trade Henry to Smith and Kelly to Danger leaving me with $146k.

  260. Laird Lad Donuts says:

    Picked up Macrae very early in the year and thinking of going macrae-danger and pocketing the 100 odd k… Hear me out first!
    Dangerfield finally showing some form and surprisingly has only gone under 100 once this year, Now before anyone goes on and says "you are only trading macrae out because he scored 102 this week" thats not it at all, To me danger and macrae should average very similarly for the end of this season, If i don't trade macrae down to danger i won't be able to get danger in this year at all which is pretty scary to think about. What does the community think?

  261. Noah says:

    Tim Kelly to t Smith. then ZGL to walters or any other forward suggestions?

  262. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    Moved up a few spots this week

    Gawn may actually break all records and punch out a double ton this week!

  264. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Hi community!

    SC wow slipped again this week from 123 to 181, and myself from 7877 to 9916. If you look closer at those stats, Wow actually fell 58% on week prior and the Tophawks slipped less than 20% this week. Keep things in perspective community! The season has not even hit the byes yet!

      Do you really have to stoop down to his level mate? You are better than that

        If you’re going to dish it out you have to take it. You put yourself on the supercoach pedestal along with your flog mate.

          Spot on mate, re read your first sentence. Surley it can go two ways?

            It can go two ways Wow but Northernsoul74 has been on this site for years and never had an argument with anyone.
            You seem to like numbers and stats. I would urge you to look over all the articles and posts from the start of the year and see if you can observe any common denominators wherever you find an argument or point of heated debate.
            It seems to me and many others that you and Sixty are always at the centre of those arguments and it's that which a lot of us find frustrating.
            If you can find a way to lose the aggressive tone to what you post I think you'll find that this site is very welcoming to all kinds of people.
            We just don't want to have to trawl thru a load of arguments to find the info we need.
            You'll prob find a way to take offence from this but you'll find I won't get in to an argument with you no matter what you write. You could learn from that example.

              Yeah and I get that ranger I started really aggressive and I backed right off. Then I had blokes like bob and hawk writing posts that served no purpose other than to diss me. Something I had never done. And everyone from the community got around those negative comments which has changed my opinion on a lot of the members on this site. I think people need to have a look at what they are saying and they will see they are being a tad hypocritical.
              I’ll go back to backing off, however I expect the attacks from others to continue, and for the support of the attacks to continue
