Round 12 SuperCoach Panic Room

Ugh. The less said about that round the better

Round 12 gives us our first taste of the 2018 byes (unlike that fake bye round where everyone scored 2400+). Four teams are having a rest: Carlton, Hawthorn, Western Bulldogs, and West Coast. This week your best 18 onfield players make up your score for the round, so if you’ve got a full forward line of 6 players your forward line emergency score won’t count.

The lack of relevant round 12 rookies should make this week pretty easy to get 18 on the park, but we’ll be hurting on the premium end with popular picks Tom Mitchell, James Sicily, Crippa, Elliot Yeo, Kade Simpson, Nic Nat, Toby McLean, and Jack Macrae all having a rest. Did you think the SuperCoach overlords would make things easy for us? Did you? Hahahaha, oh my dear reader, of course not. We’ve been dealt further blows which I’ll discuss further below.

But first, currently sitting number #1 in the charts for most half baked introduction to a podcast ever, the Lekdog and Patchy SHOWWWWWW spew forth more SuperCoach gold this week than you can poke spew covered stick at. Barron continues his quest to provide you with the best SuperCoach rookie article in the land. No premo’s and no captain choices make Patch something something this weeks Captain McCaptainface, and Damo continues to find relevance in a round where all our premiums are gone in this weeks cheat sheet.


So, yeah, those “further blows” I alluded to? It’s more one crushing defeat after another until you just wish Flanders was dead. Poor Ben Higgins will be relying to Kelly and Holman to lead his midfield this week.

Let’s break down the carnage, one game at a time. Dusty kicks off the Round of DeathTM as he has buggered off to NZ when we need him most. Jack Graham has been dropped and in come Castagna and Anthony Miles for his first crack in 2018. The Power are replacing Jack Hombsch with Jasper Pittard.

Not much happening at GMHBA stadium this weekend with the Cats unchanged and the Roos replacing an injured Jed Anderson with Cameron “Don’t mess with the” Zurhaar. Stephen Coniglio hasn’t shaken off the affects of concussion in time and is replaced in the side by Matt de Boer for GWS’ clash with Gold Coast. Aaron Hall is out for 3 months and still no Jarryd Lyons for the Suns. Stephen May will miss as well. The Saints have finally DROPPED Jack Billings. Nick Coffield is one of four ins. Bailey Rice and Logan Austin have survived the cut. The Swans will have Tom Papley back but there’s not much else happening from a SuperCoach standpoint.

On Sunday, Mitch Robinson was a sneaky trade in target for a few people but he’s out because he surprisingly didn’t belt someone, just busted his toe. There’s a possible debut on the cards for Brandon Starcevich (MID – 126.3k). Essendon have lost Zaha and Jordan “The Riddler” Ridley for the clash. They’ve added 7 to their squad, Dylan Clarke is on an extended bench and will play his second game if he makes the cut. Out west, I bloody told Nat Fyfe to whip off the shirt to avoid suspension and look what happens?! He’s gone for a week. Sandipants is straight back in. The Crows will be banning Patrick Wilson (MID / FWD – 105.4k) from bringing his own footy to the SANFL game this week, hopefully he can replicate his form at senior level. Tex is back. Oh, and *checks notes* some guy called Rory Laird will also miss. Providing the cherry on top of what promises to be a very trying round. 

Hey! A positive. Jeremy Howe is back for the Queen’s b’day / Freeze MND game on Monday. In a round where we’ll need our premo’s to step up you can lock in a 50 from Jeremy this week. Sam Murray has made the extended bench. For the Dees, Tim Smith will go down in rookie burn man folklore. 91, 102, 26, dropped. Get in the bin, Timothy! Jake Lever is out injured and there’s a possible debut for Harrison Petty (DEF – 117.3k)

** Melbourne v Collingwood **

The Dees have replaced the injured Jake Lever and omitted Tim Smith for Cam Pedersen and Joel Smith. For the Pies, Flynn Appleby is unlucky I reckon, replaced by the returning Jeremy Howe. 


Logan Austin is the pick of the rookies this week but make sure you’re not too round 14 rookie heavy before jumping on. If you’re after a cash grab, Jacob Heron may be your best bet. He’s had his bye, is the cheapest possible rookie price, and will likely sit there at D7 or D8 slowly making you cash. I’ve excluded players having their bye this week.

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

-102 – Logan Austin*

-48 – Callum Moore*

-32 – Jamaine Jones*

-27 – Jacob Heron*

0 – Josh Daicos*

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

189 – Jack Riewoldt

168 – Sandipants

157 – Brad Ebert

151 – Robbie Gray

150 – Michael Hurley

145 – Lachie Neale

141 – Jake Lloyd

141 – The Hoff

136 – Big Maxy

133 – Josh Kelly


We’re right on the cusp of upgrade season as we aim to have a full team of premiums post byes. I’ve given the lock gets a break this week to dive into a selection that we should think twice about before getting him into our teams.


Robert The Gray is averaging a tidy 108.4SC so far this year, ranked second overall amongst forwards based on average (behind Tom McDonald). In fact, he is the only “pure” forward (not a DPP) averaging more than 100 this year. I know what you’re thinking, “Kev you flog, why wouldn’t we be trying to get this guy into our team?” The answer? Thomas bloody Rockliff.

By his own admission, Rocky wasn’t ready for the start of the season. A calf injury before round 5 followed by two weeks in the SANFL to find some touch saw him return to senior team in round 8 where he tallied 31 disposals. Below is a table of Gray’s form from round 2-4 when Rocky was being awful vs rounds 8-11 when Rocky returned to being a (sort of) midfield pig.

Gray v Rocky – Round 2-4 (Averages)

Gray v Rocky – Round 8-11 (Averages)

You could look at that and see Gray’s numbers are way down, but his average goals are way up, so he’s still a safe pick. A 95 average is nothing to sneeze at in a year of meh forwards. Breaking it down further, he kicked 6 v Adelaide for 122SC and 4 against the Hawks for 96SC. In the game against Gold Coast where he went goalless? 67SC.

There’s also this. Which, yeah, that’s not great. Like, at all.


Another year, another snub to Queen Lizzy’s big birthday bash. I heard they’ll be attaching kegs to the fountains outside of Kensington Palace this year. No matter, Draftstars is hosting another yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge 100k contest on Monday. I’ll be back over the weekend to give you all the team news from Melbourne and Collingwood plus a run down of this game. 

Monday footy is good and all, but it really prolongs our suffering for this week. Looking forward to getting some round 12 premo’s in my team. Fantasy Insider are the best in the business and they’ve updated the lineup cruncher to give us this ideal lineup for tomorrow.

My take:


Interestingly, Fantasy Insider are fading both Gawn and Grundy and instead stacking the midfield. The battle is something I’m really looking forward too, giving me a solid reason to watch a Collingwood match. From a Draftstars perspective, Big Maxy is priced at almost 2k cheaper than Grundy. The Dees are yet to give up a 100+ score to an opposition ruck. The highest being Tom Hickey’s 89 back in round 7.

With a lack of cheapies it’s a difficult slate, but I can’t bring myself not to include one of Gawn or Grundy.


Some fantastic options here at the top end, namely Angus Brayshaw, Jack Crisp, and Jeremy Howe. However, both teams are pretty good at limiting the impact of running defenders. Neville Jetta was super last week with 24 possessions and 9 marks so I’m hoping he can back it up. Michael Hibberd has 80’s for the past two weeks, the absence of Jake Lever could see him get a slight bump. 


Expect to see him huge midfield games from the elites. It’s reflected in the pricing with 5 options over 15k. You could make a solid case for any but I like Tom Phillips right now. He’s running hot and has a three game average of 128. When Jake Melksham finds the big sticks good things usually follow. The Pies have a bunch of mid / fwds priced around the 9k mark. Daniel Wells, Josh Daicos, and Jaidyn Stephenson could all have good days. They could also tank horribly.


Not many at the top end excite me so I’ll pay down at this position. Cam Pedersen is named on the pine, but if he slots into the role vacated by Tim Smith and Sam Weideman before him, he’ll be a great value pick at 8.2k. The mid / fwds I suggested above can slot in here.

My lineup:


Good luck this week, Community. We’re in for a tough week. Assume the position to make things as comfortable as possible.

    What’s herons JS like? Because I’ve got no idea what’s the go with Gold Coast

  2. BrownlowBoy says:

    Upon further analysis of my team, I have come to the conclusion that the poo jogger has left a few of his gifts in my Supercoach team this week.

  3. Gem says:

    166K – 16 Trades – Really appreciating your trade advice this week. Not sure what's the best moves this week
    DEF: Laird, Simpson, Shaw, L Murphy, Doedee, Sicily, (Cole, Yeo)
    MID: Rockliff, Danger, Spargo, E Phillips, Cogs, Petracca, Brayshaw, Holman (Fyfe, Titch, Dusty)
    RUC: Gawn, NicNat (Olango)
    FWD: Heeney, Maclean, Buddy, D Smith, Guelfi, Fritsch (Billings, T Smith)

  4. DavidSA says:

    Nothing but a peanut

  5. Corey says:

    I have 14 players this week if Murray doesn’t
    Play on Monday is it worth making three trades to have 17 and save face on rank or forget about this week I have 18 Trades Left
    I was looking at
    Barry to Ahern
    Billings to Gray

  6. Derek says:

    I said I wasn’t going to PANIC until the Panic Room was here, with it’s padded walls, blunt objects and cuddly kittens.

    Now it’s time to officially panic. I feel so much better.

    • Dougie says:

      What are you going to do. Ahern in surely!

    • Derek says:

      Feeling better now.

      Finlayson, Garlett & Billings – OUT

      Happy about those 3

      Austin, Brodie & Buddy – IN

      Only way I can have 18 this week and then get 18 next week (r14 no problems) without getting rid of a premium this week.

      What are thoughts on Brodie getting a few games?

      • BrownlowBoy says:

        What are your thoughts on Brodie?

        Was tagging Selwood last week, didn't do a very good job of it.

        He was in my team at the start of the year, is he worth bringing in you think Derek?

        • Derek says:

          i saw him in plenty of pre-season teams, and i didn't realise that he had played so few games this year. shows how much attention i give the Suns.

          poor barlow broke his jaw last week

      • JugHead says:

        I don't know why he shouldn't.
        1.The suns have a long injury list with a lot of players out for multiple weeks.
        2. He's a high draft pick they should want to get some AFL games into.
        3. They are out of finals contention. If he spuds it up, its not like it really matters (in non SC terms). Perfect time to blood some kids.

      • Jack says:

        Heron instead of Austin in my humble opinion derek

  7. Steeeve says:

    I'm taking Heron over Austin. I don't need the cash gen I need a warm body and as much warchest in my team right now as possible. Out goes Mirra despite a negative break even.
    Considering Dusty out to Walters. Then Walters can swing forward for whoever sucks the most out of Petracca or Curnow.

  8. DavidSA says:

    What's people's thoughts on Laird

    Reckon he will avg 110 rest of year?
    I personally don't and would not be surprised the Crows don't risk him next week.

    Scary times

    • The King says:

      Would average anywhere between 95-110, likely will finish the no 1 averaging defender. I won't be worrying about him

    • Jack says:

      He is the only undisputed king of his line….at least till Docherty returns

    • Derek says:

      he is pretty good. for such a little bloke, he gets alot of his own footy.

      the only reason you would go without him is for not having him is the POD. that usually ends bad

    • SC_Sixty6 says:

      Avg 110 for the rest of the year? Since when has a defender averaged 110 period? Who cares what he scores as long as he's fit after his bye. Which he will be.

      He won't be rusty either. They have rehabilitation programs for these injuries. Rusty is the last thing that will happen with a jet like laird.

      Trade him at your peril… dusty is a different story because mids have plenty of options.

      Just sit down and have a beer Dave. Your mind is wondering and it's not coming across very smart.

      Cheers. WE ARE ONE!

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      I'm keeping him, no point trading him out just because of the byes.

  9. iLoveNMFC says:

    Triple downgrade rookies to field 18 or trade Dusty to Walters/Oliver?
    Cheers community.

  10. WhySoSerious says:

    What is the community doing with Tim Smith and Ridley? Not playing this week, bye next week and no guarantees to play again after round 13.Time to cut our losses and bank the cash or do you hold?

  11. Estim says:

    Smiths gone but Ridley is injured and Worsfold likes him.

  12. BingoBangoJingoJango says:

    Thoughts on these trades community?
    Richards, Barry, Keffe

    Franklin, Tom Mcdonald, Mihocek

  13. Jarryd says:

    Been saving trades all year knowing something was gonna bite me in the ass. Ranked around 5K, thought I would finally take a few risks to jump up the ladder.
    OUT: Cripps, L. Murphy
    IN: M. Duncan, Austin
    Leaves me with 16 trades and 550K in the bank, with Cripps back in for M8 in a couple of weeks once he bottoms out
    Any thoughts appreciated fellas, GL this week

  14. Alferton says:

    Thoughts please.

    Who to trade out first Mirra or Dom Barry?

    Thank you.

  15. Alferton says:

    Help please.
    Trade options:

    Option 1: in McDonald, & Austin. Leaves 13 trades and 18 on field this week
    Option 2: Menegola , Austin & Heron. Leaves 12 trades and 19 on the field this week
    Option 3 Menegola & Heron
    Option 4:McDonald & Heron

    Thank you.

  16. DavidC says:

    Sandilands is out if anyone still has him.

  17. Jim_bob321 says:

    Hi community,
    In a bit of a pickle this round and don't know who to get.
    Tossing up between Mitch Duncan or Tom McDonald (will put him in defense during the byes)

  18. Jesse says:

    I have 540k & 16 trades.
    My team is as follows. Would love any advice!

    Def: laird, Hurley, Sicily Webster hibberd rice (naughton murphy)

    Mid: danger dusty mitchell Fyfe oliver cogs westhoff Holman (Phillips spargo brayshaw)

    Ruck: Gawn & nicnat (olango)

    Fwd: heeney McLean D.smith fritsch ronke guelfi (T.smith Henry)

    Fwd line is light but will swing hoff fwd when the times right & grab two premo mids… feel like I am sittting okay with cash and trades. Everyone put ya two bob in please.

  19. TheGreatBozza says:

    D: Laird, Howe, Savage, Doedee, Murphy, Simpson (Sicily, Richards)
    M: Danger, Pendles, Holman, Higgins, Spargo, E.Philips, Fyfe, Cogs (Mitchell, Cripps, Dusty)
    R: Gawn, Grundy (Hayes)
    F: Smith, Watlers, Fritsch, Ronke, ZGL, Billings (McLean, Smith)

    At the moment I'm looking at Billings > Heeney
    Richards > Austin…

    My only concern is leaving me thin for R14 (only 16 on field subject to injuries)

  20. Steeeve says:

    Anyone else trading out Tim Smith already? I wanted to get rid of Spargo. But Smith is out and I need warm bodies. Smith to Gray gives me 18.
    Also trading Mirra this week (instead of Lachlan Murphy) so I will have 18.

    Two blokes with negative breakevens both traded out. That's gotta give the SC gods a special tingle.

  21. John says:

    Is it worth trading Dusty to someone like Clayton Oliver? Or should I just hold?

  22. Thinktoomuch says:

    Am I insane???????
    A lot jumped on rocky last week and I laughed in me froffy thinking what fools when he spat out another turd.
    5 days later and 7k more I’m thinking of jumping on to save a few donuts
    Please say a few harsh words to slap me back to earth

    • Havin a crack says:

      Is he a valuable m9 after these byes?

    • Steeeve says:

      He will tag Cotchin this week and score maybe 70.

    • Sc_Wow says:

      Think of the fun you will have laughing in your froffy again tonight after you don't bring him in

      • Havin a crack says:

        Do ya’s think many will have the funds and trades to have a semi pro or at least a 1/2 decent d7, m9 and f7 come sc finals?

        • HumanBob says:

          I'll be using Seedsman as my D7 and or M10 emergency post byes.
          I'll probably use JJK for F7 and I might be able to keep jack steven as M9.

          My team is ranked about 27millionth so I reckon a few others will also have decent bench coverage for the run home

    • SamuraiPizzaCat says:

      I brought him in last week and still think it was a good move for bye coverage and potential hold as M9, or even M8 if he picks up, despite his crappy 41.

    • BlueBaggerJosh says:

      bring miller in if you want a bye saviour, i am considering him or a discounted ablett.

      • Havin a crack says:

        Even tho I’ve got the cash now I don’t think I wanna spend 490k on a m9 if he’s not dpp.
        I’m really considering rocky to save my sorry ass through the byes and hopefully finds abit of form so I can loop him.
        Panic panic panic

    • redherringfc says:

      If i didn’t get him last week I’d definitely jump on board this week. His tagging was awful, it shouldn’t happen again.

      Jjk next week is the only other seriously underpriced player to consider (in my half drunk opinion)

    • prizza says:

      Tagged after half time, mitchell was 109 halftime finished high 130s , they might use him as tagger from here on , hope not but he can half 13 tackles and a couple of possies and still get a hungy

  23. Defying_Madness says:

    Hey community not sure what to do this week, selections really hurt me

    DEF: Laird, Simpson, Yeo, Sicily, Ryan, Ridley (Murphy, Keefe)

    MID: Fyfe, Oliver, Cripps, Coniglio, Martin, Titch, Merret, Walters (Barry, Phillips, Holman)

    RUC: Grundy, Gawn (Olango)

    FWD: Heeney, McLean, Menegola, D Smith, Fritsch, Guelfi (Spargo, T Smith)

    I have 68,100 in the bank and 12 trades


  24. SCWars94 says:

    Trades this week:

    Spargo to Ahern
    Murphy to Heron
    Billings to Boak

  25. FFC says:

    Fyfe – 4th most traded out player this week…??

  26. Nick says:

    ATTENTION! Im in Serious need of Advice

    If you had to pick one…..

    Decisions based off predicted form, cash rise and job security. I don't care about bye coverage as i don't have any other players during Mihoceks round 13 bye


  27. Tyruddanaut says:


    I have already traded Dusty to Oliver and Barry to Ahern, so now I should be good for all bye rounds. Although R13 is looking scary, my forward line has Lobb, Guelfi, Keeffe, Fritsch, Smith. My midfield has Gonigliog, Oliver, Zerrett, Phillips and Ahern. I have Gawn and OLango and need to do all my upgrades next week if I want good bye rounds

  28. Jim_bob321 says:

    What does the community think about Jared Polec?

  29. Condi says:

    What’s everyone’s thoughts on JS for Callum Moore and Jermain Jones?

  30. RonkeyDonkey says:

    Anyone who trades me out be warned! A 12 goal 50 disposal 400 tackle performance is coming tomorrow! I will score you 1800.

  31. Steve says:

    Trades this week

    Richards to Heron
    T.Smith. to Ahern
    Mutch. to Dangerfield

  32. DavidSA says:

    anyone rate Pendles..
    Super low price a gift or for a reason.

    100.2 now
    run home?

    Will be interesting

  33. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    bringing in a discounted mid this week so i can trade Ed curnow and JJK in next week. Should i go miller or ablett?
    Miller allows me to field 18 for the next two bye rounds but gary ablett at 487k looks tempting despite the bye.

    • DavidSA says:

      Mate im doing similar

      Going JJK and Gaff

      • BlueBaggerJosh says:

        saw you mentioned pendles above, redid the math and i could field 18 if i went pendles instead of ablett (i did want phillips but will be short of cash next week to get a good mid premo in like ed) Pendles or Miller, dont have long to decide now.

        • DavidSA says:

          Pendlebury although does not have the ceiling he used to is still one of the most consistent players going around. He can't do worse than what he has done already this year is my view

  34. BeenHereBefore says:

    Is richards to heron worth it? Fielding 18 this week.

  35. TommyC99 says:

    So gone Findlayson – Austin with my first trade, leaving me with 354k and 12 trades. Got Keeffe, Billings Ridley, T Smith and Dusty on the chopping block. These are my trade ideas.

    Billings – Buddy
    Keeffe/Ridley/Tim Smith – Heron
    Dusty – Oliver

    Which trafes di you reckon please guys?

    • fyfemywife says:

      I wouldnt trade Martin out, hes cheap as chips and surely hell be freshened up after his break to come back and pump out some big scores again

    • Derek says:

      im doing Finlayson to Austin, Billings to Buddy. Holding Dusty and Cogs.

      you still have to hold your premiums, at least until after the byes and see how many trades you have

  36. Bells says:

    Thanks for summing up my SC year T Smith. Your 26 then droppe since I bought you in perfectly encapsulates the joy I've had this year. Dusty, Laird and Fyfe…well everyone has them so….

    To plagarise a golf joke…."Why do they call it Supercoach?"…"Because the words S**T and F**K were already taken".

  37. Waydo says:

    Heron or Austin and why?

    • Jack says:

      Heron because at this stage of the year whoever you choose will likely be in your team all year (so you don't get the trade out price/profit) so starting price and job security are what matter most and I believe Heron beats him on both points

    • Randomcliche2 says:

      Good arguments to the contrary, but I'm going for the quick cash grab on Austin #risky.

    • Russty_ says:

      Honestly Waydo…I'd say neither…not worth a trade either of them.

      • JohnDJ59 says:

        I didn't get either Russty, we really need to nail the last rookies in our side and Heron scoring isn't great and Austin JS is no good by the sound of it. I do have a problem though in that I only have 69k in cash and am still 5 off from full premo, so will have to be patient.

  38. Doc_1 says:

    Brayshaw to Buddy
    English to Jones (means I field both Jones and Brayshaw) and get Buddy next week.

    Logic tells me take Brayshaw/Jones scores and hope Buddy doesn’t reach break even (110) and I get him slightly cheaper, but just have that feeling he could go large against the saints.

    • The King says:

      I'm bringing Buddy in this week, gut feel is a big game against the Saints. Kennedy kicked 6 last week, Buddy has every chance to as well

  39. fyfemywife says:

    Spargo to Heeney
    Naughton to Login Austin


  40. KingWinter7 says:

    What’s the go with Mirra?
    Trade him or Murphy to Austin need players this week

    Leaning towards trading Mirra cause even though -10 breakeven he’s not playing unlike Murphy

    Got Fyfe, Laird, Coniglio, Billings, Smith all out and that’s not including bye players rip

  41. TommyC99 says:

    is Heron worth the trade? Will give me 16 on field (absolute carnage). If so, can trade out Keeffe, Ridley or Tim Smith?

  42. Kale says:

    any one able to tell me if its wet in adelaide?? i might VC the hoff before i C danger tomorrow… i Have limited options this round :/ i dont trust gawn unfortunately

  43. jesse says:

    Ronke or Henry to R.Gray?? i need more premium power across my byes so time to upgrade

  44. Kale says:

    Dusty just a one weeker or they let him have 3 weeks off ?! if he misses the nxt he has the bye R14… on the fence about trading.

  45. Bells says:

    Was looking to trade Dusty for a wam body on a three week loan… there is NOBODY worth having at Port or GC.
    if only Ahern had had his bye…

  46. Rabbits16 says:

    i need to see a psychologist

  47. TommyC99 says:

    Buddy, Gray or hoff?

  48. Rooey says:

    why am i considering shaun higgins? looking past my favoritism, 104.2 five round avg, 1% ownership and 105 avg if you minus his injury affected score (62, concussion start of 3rd) . Roos have undergone a renaissance this year and Higgins has been a key contributor.

    • Russty_ says:

      Hey Rooey, he doesn't seem to be the burnman he has been in the past now, could be a nice pod with the Roos doing well this year.

  49. Jimmy says:

    Should I trade in Buddy and Heron instead of Hoff and Austin if it means that I can upgrade Nank to Grundy after Grundy has had his bye

    • redherringfc says:

      It seems sound.

      Hoff is overpriced this round. Buddy is unders and has the Saints. There are concerns over Austin’s JS. Nank to Grundy will be a huge plus.

  50. Russty_ says:

    Hey guys, is Laird a definite out or still a chance to play?

  51. Murray says:

    Hogan or Walters?

  52. KSinny says:

    Thoughts on my trades this week..

    Dusty to Gray
    Keefe to Austin

    Doing this leaves me with 13 trades 104k in the bank and 18 on field this week, also getting Gray means I have one player to worry about during the byes.

  53. Russty_ says:

    I'm not doing any trades this week..unless something else happens, have 18 starting and 19 if Howe plays…sorry guys.

    • SC_Sixty6 says:

      You are an absolute jet Russty.

    • Defying_Madness says:

      Must feel nice Russty.
      Good stuff

    • Lazza says:

      I’m not trading either.. would totally screw my plans .. so copping 2 donuts. But should be fairly competitive over the next 2 rounds. With 17 trades this might seem crazy, but I only have 2 rookies in the frame and both have good coin to make .. wasting a trade on Heron for 44 points and net zero $$$ gain is insane..

      • Russty_ says:

        Hey Lazza, yeah don't think Heron's worth a trade either, will get Ahern pre round 14 and Mihocek if he scores ok and keeps his gig with Reid due back, I've got 16 left and want to hang on to em as long as possible..and don't really care about the bye results.

        • Defying_Madness says:

          Russty mate, assuming you have Dusty and are keeping him?
          Not sure whether to keep him myself

          • Russty_ says:

            Yeah I think I will DM, I paid 656K for the spud and I want my money's worth!..he went to crap as soon as I bought him but he always usually turns it around and finishes strongly. There are some tempting replacement options though, Phillips, Menegola, Beams, Zorko, Gazza..but probably not Gazza lol.
            Trust your instinct mate, I'm not worrying about the byes too much as a general rule.
            Martin to Danger's a good call mate as I read you ask before.

        • Lazza says:

          I’m with ya… if both get through I’m on them..
          DM, I’m holding Martin.. even thru to R15.. he will pay..(I only bought him last week).

          • Derek says:

            If you are trading Martin, wouldn’t you want to get someone who has already had their bye. Not many to choose from, so you just hold him

    • JEL says:

      Nice work.
      I see we're H-2-H in Oceans 14.

      Hoping I can manage my trades to end up close to full premo at the end of the byes.

  54. Gem says:

    Trade Out – T Smith or L Murphy. I guess keep the one that's still playing.
    I can swing Sicily FWD and Get Heron or Austin.
    Which would you do?

    • Gem says:

      Oh and I only have 15 on field before any trades this week.

      • Murray says:

        Gem, I would go to Austin, and I would trade smith. You will likely need every warm body on the park this round. But it depends on your opponent. If you think you can win your league match, trade Murphy

        • Gem says:

          Hi Murray, was thinking Heron is 50K cheaper and could play through the byes.
          Austin would go up quite a bit this week though.
          I think I could win, but now sure on hanging onto Murphy or Smith

        • Gem says:

          Just realised I can only do L Murphy – Austin to get R Gray. T Smith won't get me enough $
          But, T Smith – Heron allows me to get R Gray

  55. Ahmad rubas says:

    Laird hibberd Hurley doedee rice cumming (Sicily cole)
    Danger dusty Kelly Fyfe coniglio rocky coffield Higgins (titch Cripps Dow)
    Gawn Goldstein (olango)
    Heeney smith petracca lobb spargo fritsch (billings smith)
    17 trades left 205k
    I'm thinking billings to gray and Dow to Brodie thoughts?

  56. JugHead says:

    Is Gray a top 6 fwd?

  57. Gem says:

    Trade Out – T Smith or L Murphy. I guess keep the one that's still playing.

  58. TommyC99 says:

    Thoughts on Heron?

  59. Dav says:

    Buddy or Hogan

    • redherringfc says:

      I think Buddy. If it’s this week,

      I’d struggle to bring in a player for 1 week then let him have a week off, although if my matchups are tight come Monday I’ll probably get Tmac in for Smith.

    • DANGER1VDUSTY2 says:

      Hogan for me as I have plenty of players playing next week already when he has the bye. Franklin has the R14 bye so he does not suit me. Scoring wise take your pick.

  60. jeff says:

    keep or trade hibberd?

    • DANGER1VDUSTY2 says:

      Honestly if you have held him this long just keep him (BE 76 this week) until Hurley comes down in price or do it for a Sicily or Simpson type next week or Yeo in 2 weeks.

    • Jack says:

      At least keep him to see how he goes without Lever, he has bottomed out now anyway

  61. cashcows says:

    Keeffe or Murphy to Heron?

    Keeffe seems obvious but 1 trade for 50k seems steep.
    Already burned one going Barry to Smith the other week.
    Going keeffe would mean moving sicily up forward.

  62. SC_Sixty6 says:

    I'm expecting a solid 64 from Gray tonight. 85% time up fwd. Tigers will bring the heat !

  63. MEK says:



  64. DANGER1VDUSTY2 says:

    Dusty Martin sucks footballs!
    Just Traded him to J.Hogan BE32 (via DPP) and it feels real good.
    I now have 18 playing this week.
    Martin will miss the next 3 matches and I don't have enough players for R14 at the moment anyway so it was an easy call really.

  65. prizza says:

    Just remember this week is not just a one off, injuries are going to happen every week from here on end even after the byes, its as much a certainty as the mighty maggies on monday.

  66. jeff says:

    T-Mac or Beams? Or who else is good value for money right now?

  67. Zak says:

    Moore or Jermaine?

  68. hedski says:

    Ahh, what to do with Murphy????
    A) Hold, cop his crap scores, maybe lose some cash, trade to Mihocek if named round 14.
    B) Go early on Mihocek and cross fingers, bank cash.
    C) Trade to Heron, cross fingers, bank cash.
    Doin my head in fellas cheers.

  69. Sc_Wow says:

    Big week fellas hope you’ve all planned well

  70. Ben says:

    thoughts on murray to hurley?

  71. prizza says:

    Hey Jeff for what its worth i rekon hogan is enjoying his footy , such a contrast to last year for obvious reasons and i think he is on the verge of something with his mindset the way it is now

  72. Nuggety says:

    Not trading. 21 on field if Howe plays. Reckon I'm gonna regret not picking up Austin though. Just not worth the risk of a precious trade if he flops like Smith did..

  73. Shake_n_Bake_ says:

    Ok with your trades how many players are starting in your teams this week?? I made1 trade and have 19 playing.

  74. Holty01 says:

    Damn. Just come back from a few days away with no reception to see the carnage. Thankfully noone of interest playing tonight for SC otherwise would of been stuffed.

  75. TheGreatBozza says:

    Is trading Dusty too shortsighted? Can just field a weak 18 this week. My R14 bye is a struggle but I’m not keen on losing so much value on dusty

    • Russty_ says:

      Maybe Bozza, time passes quickly mate and if he turns his form around, as he usually does second half of the season it could be regrettable trading him out..won't know until the benefit of hindsight though 🙂

  76. BadgerHoney7 says:

    the umpires uniform is hurting my eyes

    • DANGER1VDUSTY2 says:

      Damn Skippy on that call!
      These morons need to be 1 color – top, shorts, socks and no writing/advertising

    • DANGER1VDUSTY2 says:

      Didn't put the hand up to nominate (Ruck contest) what a garbage rule.
      The idiots at the AFL are clueless morons.
      Screw nominating, the umpire should throw the ball up quicker – first in 1 from each team and if the ruckman is to slow getting to the contest too bad. If another player then interferes (3rd man up) free kick then.

    • Russty_ says:

      Maybe they're part time Hare Krisnas?

    • Slappin Sammy Newman says:

      CHEMIST WAREHOUSE on the jumper, You can't make this crap up. They are on medication let me give you the tip.

  77. Russty_ says:

    Go Jacky Higgo 36 at quarter time…I'll take that any day, keep going you little bugger.

  78. Holty01 says:

    I know Gray is very good in the forward line but surely Hinkley must realise they are a much better side with Gray running through the midfield more often

  79. Shake_n_Bake_ says:

    Gray 2 handballs 1 tackle 19 pts Boak 4 kicks 2handballs 2 marks 6pts WTF??! !

  80. Defying_Madness says:

    Looks like a cheap Westhoff over a cheap Gray for me next week

  81. BrownlowBoy says:


  82. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    For anyone with doubts about JJK, Wingard and Dixon look good tonight both at the 360-370k mark and averaged 90+ last year. Wingard pure midfield so far

  83. TommyC99 says:

    Decided to reverse Billings – buddy trade in bring in Hoff with 2mim left before bounce. And then whacked the VC on him. To say I’m happy is an understatement!

  84. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Rocky is tagging Cotchin! NOT……….. 47 SC at half time. Good boy.

  85. Shake_n_Bake_ says:

    I nearly give up on championship data scoring Gray 4 handballs no marks 1 tackle and a goal is worth nearly 50pts at half time!!

  86. redherringfc says:

    Decent quarter from Rocky.

    He doesn’t have the snout in the trough yet, but he’s sniffing around it.

  87. Jeff says:

    Can I not reverse my trades now if the players involved havnt played?

  88. JugHead says:

    Nank, you have done ok. But when Grundy has had his bye, Im not gunna miss ya.

  89. BadgerHoney7 says:

    miles could be a nice mid downgrade if he keeps playing like this, will struggle with dusty back though

  90. Lazza says:

    Corruption in SC. Gray is getting smashed by Grimes, has 6 disposals, 1 kick and 1 goal and sits on 46 points .. joke.. At least Grimes is rewarded with 62..

  91. HumanBob says:

    I might give Chad a go. Every year he seems to have a run of shocking games and then redeems himself with some match winners. 6-tons for the year is his low since being a grownup (12 is his high) so, by the stats he will ton up in more than half of the remaining games and 2 of them will be 120+

    • Sc_Wow says:

      Where was this logic when I was explaining the Jjk situation

    • BlueBaggerJosh says:

      Chad or JJK will be an interesting debate, both proven premos who have had their bye. JJK's role is clear however, don't know where these Wingard mid minutes have come from, seems very random

      • HumanBob says:

        Chaos theory is Port midfield strategy. makes it hard for opposition coaches to plan a mid defence when you don't know who'll be in there and what role they might have.
        That said JJK is an on field option without Darling Chad is a risky loopholer at best

      • Sc_Wow says:

        Feeding his ego I’d say, he’s had plenty of it but no where near as damaging as gray in the mids

        • DavidSA says:

          Wingard said he knows his form is not up to the standard it should be.
          Hinkley is giving him the extra push by putting him on ball rather than his real position where he has stunk it up for a long time now.

    • hedski says:

      Don't let Patch learn your address if you get the Chad.

  92. DavidSA says:

    Bloody hell
    Beers for everyone
    Only a Friday night and sooks all round

    • Russty_ says:

      I know right?…not much any of us can do about the way it gets scored.
      Did you get another Carton Dave?…:)

    • Lazza says:

      I’m on the Red, just saw Gray score an excellent point .. should get 9 points for that ( (I’m buying Gray next week) 😜

      • HumanBob says:

        He was robbed of a goal assist when he deliberately let the ball slip through his fingers to hit his shoulder at the precise angle to rebound to a teamate who was able to deliver to another team mate in the open. with 3-minutes to go.
        Only half of his 'fumbles' scored more than 4-points yet all 16 of them resulted in a clear possession and attacking disposal for a team mate. That was as close to a 300 SC game as I have ever seen

        • Dublin dude says:

          You obviously haven’t got Gray you tosser. Give credit where it is due. Never play footy? Probably a net baller.

          • SC_Sixty6 says:

            Spot on Dublin.

          • Lazza says:

            Don’t be a [email protected] Dubby boy.. no need for name calling .. Gray gets due credit and many of us, who have played a higher grade of footy than you, have Gray on our radar.. he was always a post bye option, but not this week .. he was never going to reach his BE .. CD did their best, but corrected their first half exuberance to give him his due score.. he was beaten in almost every contest in the first half .. didn’t deserve his head start..

    • HumanBob says:

      Wher's the beer you promised me Dave?

  93. Sc_Wow says:

    Gray getting robbed

  94. HumanBob says:

    How the hell is Gray on 84 with those stats and a couple of gift no effort goals?

    • MrsMoore says:

      Callum got 60 for more possessions at a greater de with same amount goals

    • Sc_Wow says:

      Because he’s good. You watching or just looking at stats?

      • Shake_n_Bake_ says:

        He’s fantastic Wow, can you explain to me then how 4 handballs no marks and 1 goal = 47 half time points + no handballs resulted in goal. Im all ears.

      • The Swede says:

        Agree Wow and Sixty. Some of these blokes don’t understand footy.

        • Lazza says:

          Off course a Swede would know … no mistaking Gray is easily one of the best players in the comp … but regardless of his pressure acts he was beaten in almost every contest in the first half.. that should be a negative not a zero..

          There is a reason the AFL coaches ignore many of the CD stats.

    • SC_Sixty6 says:

      Lots of pressure acts and very clean.

      • Lazza says:

        I think the Champion Data has been monitoring this site.. I thought Gray’s 2nd half was better than his first … they’ve reined him in to a score more reflecting his game … and good for those of us looking to pick him up this week at a lower price .. 😁

  95. HumanBob says:

    SPP must have put his hand up the skirt of somebody at Champion data. 7 cp and 5 clearances total BS

  96. BrownlowBoy says:

    "We don't talk to each other like that"
    "You need to calm down"

    Classic Razor Ray

  97. HumanBob says:

    Did anybody trade in Caddy thinking that he'd score even better without Dusty? I nearly did.

  98. SCWars94 says:


  99. prizza says:

    Rocky still a bad choice , top effort will get better, creates for wines etc absolute bulldog half fit

  100. Ahmad rubas says:

    is cumming to austin a bad trade?

    • Randomcliche2 says:

      People are questioning is JS, but I've always found players scoring well get picked. Even Horse had to pick Newman last year and he clearly doesn't like picking him. Hoping he doesn't go all Tim Smith on me.

      • Ahmad rubas says:

        I like Austin as a pick just unsure if cumming will get a game anytime soon. If he somehow gets a game soon and makes money I'd rather hold but may need to make the trade if it's unlikely he returns before the end of the season

  101. noah says:

    Gawn or Danger as Captian as im going away for the weekekend?

  102. SC_Sixty6 says:

    Including Rocky's 100 tonight his avg is 64. Pointless trade getting someone in with huge injury risk and someone that won't be top 8 mid with his low 17 score and all his other terrible scores. Wasted trade.

    59 avg before tonight….. quality premo!

    • Marcus says:

      Previous scores are history, no point considering them
      For his price and scoring potential, is a solid m8 turned m9

    • Valens_FC says:

      I don’t have him but I don’t think referencing averages in this round is the right angle. Any port or Gold Coast player bought in this round is an extra game up and that won’t be reflected in averages.

      I like the rocky move better this week than last… not just a hindsight comment about his scores, but a nice 3 game home stand for port and an extra game through the byes. There is some logic to it imo.

    • Rick Grimes says:

      Previous scores are completely meaningless. Hes averaged 100 for people who got him this week. Same argument about scores and injury history also apply to JJK.

  103. Sc_Wow says:

    World Cup soon. Will be a good break from this crap season of AFL

  104. Rex says:

    Genius decision trading in Rockliff gentlemen! If he scores 100 against the reigning premiers imagine what he'll score against the cellar dwellers?? The sky's the limit with Rocky!! And he won't go missing in the bye rounds like the other so-called premuims. So happy right now 😉

  105. theRealPod says:

    Danger and Ben Brown (edit) seem to have a little bet going for today's game. Who can score the most SC points wins. Also, Danger has been playing with a sore back !! No friggin wonder the best player in the comp has been below par (source for all info: Harry Taylor). Might be a wise move to VC Danger today : )

  106. Stupid Coach says:

    Playing with 19 this week. I am down to 14 trades so thinking of not making any trades and hoping it gets me across the line in my league matches. Planning to trade Doedee and Henry next week when they have their byes. However now I am not sure whether I should trade Keefe (useful swing with Sicily) to Heron/ Logan or Smith to Ahern (or other fwd rookie to give me one extra player on the field. Should I pull the trigger or hold fire.

    • Jack says:

      I wouldn't. 19 is pretty good for this week and you don't make enough coin from trading Keefe (also lose the Sicily flexibility)
      If you had 20 with Heron he would most likely be bottom 2 so score wouldn't count. Ahern looks a must-have but wait till after his bye if you can (Henry to Ahern looks good pre rd14)

  107. Savant says:

    Danger is my VC. If he scores well, can I put any bye player on the ground as my captain with a player, say Parker playing tonight on the bench as my E.
    Second year SC but not sure of bye rounds procedure.

  108. Crow94 says:

    So sad that this site has gone from being one of the best around last year to one of the worst. All because of a couple of certain people……..

    It used to be a site where everyone helped one another and was fun. Now its just people getting back at eachother and stooping to the levels of these people….

  109. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Hi Community!

    Its bye time and it's a time of stress and fear. But, it is also a time of opportunity if you have planned for them.

    With Holman and Rocky running around in my midfield it has really helped me with with those unwelcome and untimely omissions such as Fyfe, Laird, Cogs, T Smith, Dusty, etc etc. It is important to continue to use your trades smartly and continue to push to get to full premo. It is crucial IMO to keep the game moving forward.

    I am considering pulling 2 trades this week. (currently have 16) I am going early on Ahern (Slightly risky but appears to have decent JS) to raise some fast cash and extra warm body this week. The fact that Crowden has failed to make the cut AGAIN this week means he is carted off to the abattoir. Crowden- OUT and Ahern- IN.

    I am pulling one premo upgrade this week. I can not touch Guelfi, ZGL, Holman, Doedee as they all still have super low BE's and have a lot more cash to make and the fact that they are warm bodies too. I am also leaving Murphy and Ronke alone purely because they are playing this week and will not lose much cash if any, despite their higher BE's. So that leaves me with Keeffe and Mirra as my two sacrificial lamb options. I have $556K in the warchest. Keeffe with his swingability with Sicily survives the cut.
    Mirra- OUT and Luke Ryan- IN

    It is time for Ryan to shine. I am going to back him in to deliver. He has that round 14 bye, but I can cover him as I will still field at least 18 during round 14.
    Back line now: Laird, Yeo, Howe, Sicily, Ryan, and Hurley (in 2 weeks for Doedee). Hibbo likely to turn into Tmac forward via Keefe DPP swing. Back line finished.

    Then next week, the culling will start in earnest with many of the rookies getting closer to maxing out in price. Next week JJK is on my hit list. Mihochek also closely on my watchlist.

    Hoping to pull 4-5 more trades in the next 2 weeks to head into the run home with 9-10 trades and full premo. (Rocky M9)

    Will need a bit of luck to pull off my plans but so far so good. (Touch wood) Good luck community!

    • Rex says:

      A great luxury to be able to trade in the player you want (Ryan) No doubt Rockliff has made this possible. Strap in your seats folks, the pig has returned!

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        Absolutely. Rocky has given me some decent options now. Very pleased to see him on the ball tonning up again! A few more please. Cheers mate.

        • Sc_Wow says:

          Mate he’s been on the ball for weeks, one ok score for a premo. Sit down. You’re miles behind in points and premo upgrades so stop going on like you’ve got some master plan. Save some cash to ditch that ruckman too

        • Rex says:

          If he can ton up against the reigning premiers something tells me he has probably got a few more in him. His tog will go up as he works his way back to full fitness as well. On top of all this, he has got quite the reputation for finishing seasons like a freight train. Get on board while you can, this freight train is express to Round 23 from here on!!!!

    • SC_Sixty6 says:

      It's time for Ryan to shine? Lol. Does a beam of light shine out your ass so he can see the way to 120+ avg? He's been performing all year so don't act like when you get him he's going perform just on that note.

      JJK bandwagoner. It seems your at least 2 weeks behind everyone with your moves TH.

  110. SC_Sixty6 says:

    Perfect example majority of people here can learn from SCWars mistake (aka crow)

    Goodluck for rest of the weekend guys. Cheers. WE ARE ONE!

  111. JugHead says:

    Last year there was a player of undoubted quality with a lousy injury history.
    He'd never averaged over 100 in a season, but was clearly capable of it.
    I just couldnt select him on the basis of his injury history, even though he played nearly all of 2016, carrying injuries and not playing to his full potential. I think he had a post season operation in 2016, then fronted up for 2017.
    Some people just looked at his ability and selected him anyway. His body held together and he repaid them in spades……. Kreuzer.

    Fast forward a year, there are similarities with Rocky. I don't blame anyone for NOT selecting him based on his injury history, but-
    Don't doubt his scoring ability. He has averaged over 100 plenty of times, and not much under that when playing hurt.
    He came into the season underdone after a 2017 post season operation and it showed. Consequently his price dropped a long way for a player of his ability. After this week you will still pick him up for less than 400k.
    And there is still room for his game time to come up as his match fitness builds.
    Power recruited him for the engine room, nowhere else. He will be around the ball a lot and might feel he has a point to prove at a new club with a slow start to the season.

    I wanted another look at him last night. Next week he comes into my team as the perfect mid/fwd swing man to plug holes late in the season. Could it blow up in my face? Sure. But I'm prepared to take the punt his arms and legs don't fall off.
    I'm not too worried about his scoring ability given his history and his current role.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Good stuff mate! You nailed that post. Rocky looked really sharp last night. He is starting to look ominous. I traded him in 2 weeks ago at $375K. Bargain of the season IMO. And boy have I copped flak for it since. After last night's tonne the flak has kind of lifted a bit. I wonder why? Stoked having him during all 3 byes. Risk vs reward. Plenty of rewards on offer with Rocky. Hope he serves you well too next week. Cheers mate.

    • SC_Sixty6 says:

      Didn't realize he was mid/fwd swing. What a bargain!

      TH you act like you are the only coach that brought him in. Get off it. I agree with the bargain of the season part……77avg. You get what you pay for. 😉

    • Sc_Wow says:

      Played injured last year and if you look at his post bye record it was horrible. The guy has scored a 17 this year. Can’t just ignore that stuff. Yeah he’s scored well in the past but so has hanners and no one talks about him. If you ever watched him in Brisbane you would be able to agree that he’s is miles off what he was back then

    • prizza says:

      Like the post , some are good at what they do and rocky can still be sc relevant even when its obvious he has been banged up.
      It is great to see the pressure he is applying because it means lots of tackles, which in turn means the longer you do the hard stuff the closer you are to hitting form again.
      Another one i may take the chance with will be ablett after his bye, he and rocky are pretty handy at this game and if they hold up well risk versus reward.

    • JugHead says:

      Few things I need to clarify.
      I'm not expecting him to turn back the clock 5 years and start scoring 130+
      But I can see him averaging 110, and for less than 400k that is value. In his current role, if he stays fit I can't see why not.
      A few people will be running the microscope over Gaz for the same reason. Higher price, but potential value.
      By the end of the season, lots of us will have m7/8 types not averaging any better than 110. At the minute, there are 8 mids averaging above 110. But its a long way to go yet. And I don't have a crystal ball.
      66, you are correct, he is not dpp in SC. My bad.
      I didnt mention his value as bye coverage. Two reasons. First, if you didnt bring him in already, for bye purposes, he only has two more useful weeks. Second, I don't believe in bringing in 400k players to help you for 2 weeks, then drag you down for the rest of the season. You bring him in to strengthen your team for the rest of the season, or you pass on him completely.

    I've Traded T Smith to L Austin already.
    Would you trade out Billings and to who or hold?

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Lose Billings. Its now or never. If you have a lot of cash you can get JJK early so he is ready to go next week. Looks like you will win your league anyway. So set your self up for next week! Just an idea. Good luck Gem!

    • SC_LEGEND2018 says:

      Go for it mate. Billings needs to go

  113. TheGreatBozza says:

    Billions to Austin
    Spargo to premo mid or fwd? I’m thinking Treloar, Kelly, Crouch, McDonald

  114. The Ranger says:

    Maths is a fuc*ker isn't it?

  115. Billy says:

    Is Laird likely to play next week or not?

  116. theRealPod says:

    CARN THE CATTERS.. Danger 145+, Gaz 200

  117. Soothsayer says:

    Hard reading this thread today. I miss Jock, Higgo and the Crouching one.

    • SC_Sixty6 says:

      I agree mate. These loose units like PIE, TH,, Rick, Russty, Rabbit that abuse and threaten people is disgusting. I'd get along so well with the old boys.

  118. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Gawn locked in as C, might go a pod vc in Heeney or someone else other than Danger,

  119. HeathLegend says:

    Currently looking to trade Mitch Robinson

    Option 1: Bring in Duncan which will give me a strong 19 this week and play with only 16 players in rd 14

    Option 2: Bring E Curnow in early, play with 18 this round but gives me a stronger 17 in rd 14

    Is the Jacobs tag something Duncan could end up with today. Is he a legit M7 or M8 option. Thoughts guys?

  120. dontblushbaby says:

    When will the teams for Monday be finalised please ? Whilst Mihocek has been named at CHB I'm concerned with the Pies extended bench eg Howe coming back he might be dropped ? thoughts anyone

  121. Connor says:

    Any Collingwood supporters – has J. Crisp's role changed at all?? Why is he averaging so much more over the past few? Does Howe back impact him at all…

  122. red5 says:

    Mitch Robinson out for 3
    Trade or Keep?

  123. KSinny says:

    Can everyone stop arguing and just get along?…. Please

  124. Nuggety says:

    Who has Jacobs gone to?

  125. Defying_Madness says:

    Brought in Danger this week and chucked the VC on him so expect a stinker

  126. Pauly Walnuts says:

    Who out of Kade Simpson or Heath Shaw would you trade in ? Shaw costs 38k less with BE of only 39, however I feel Simpson is more consistent ,already have LLoyd,Laird,Yeo, Ryan, Brayshaw, please help

    danger spending a lot of time forward

  129. Rex says:

    This article has gone into meltdown!!! To think all this come from a porkchop falsely accusing a member of being racist for saying Dusty was in NZ. Let's all get back to the game, yeah?

  130. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Paul Ahern looking very solid. 40 SC at half time. Keep going you good thing!

  131. Tyruddanaut says:

    The commentators needn’t to shut up about paddy Dangerfield.
    ‘He’s fantastic as a forward’
    He’s playing no as a deep forward, who hasn’t scored with higher than 55% accuracy in the past 4 years. He’s kicked 2.2, one of them off a free kick which wasn’t deserved.

    Finally, he has worse accuracy than the player nutourious for having the worst aim in the AFL… Levi Casboult

  132. Rick Grimes says:

    Anyone bring Ablett in this week? Kudos I'd you did. Throw back to yesteryear.

  133. Help me says:

    Might have to add another player with huge injury risk but proven massive scoring, Tribute to the crouching one

    After his bye welcome my team Garyyyyyyyyyy ablett son!!! He come my gym, I kick him in nuts and break foot
    Massive ball sack

    • Jack says:

      Haha nice one. Is it just me or was Robbie Gray Wayno's hot tip like every second week. Might have to bring in Robbie too, just for Wayno's sake….a successful businessman like himself would sure to know a good bargain when he sees one!

  134. Shake_n_Bake_ says:

    You definitely have to have your players in your team start well with championship data Danger 5 touches last 4 mins 7 pts even Higgins goal only scored 4 pts.

  135. Rick Grimes says:

    Is Tom Stewart approaching premo? He might make it to my d6 post bye. Reckon he'll be a solid SC player for a few years to come.

    • AuroraBorealis?! says:

      I was watching him quite closely at the start of the season, he seems a little inconsistent atm but i think next year he's one to definitely look at starting

    • Nuggety says:

      Could be defenders so fickle..a month ago Witherden was looking good now wondering if he needs to be upgraded. Stewart looked very good today.

  136. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Take Higgins 123 or go Gawn and hope he goes 150?

  137. Jack says:

    Come up a little short with my VC.
    My options for C are Buddy, Gawn or Grundy? I'm leaning towards Gawn but with no confidence

    • Nuggety says:

      Gawn for me, the look on his face when Neale Daniher addressed the players was telling. Neale said why not you, why not now? If Gawn wasn't steeled for the clash Grundy he was after that I reckon.. Since seeing that I changed my Monday tip to the dees.

  138. Defying_Madness says:

    Heron and holman on a combined 0 points

    • johnno2908 says:

      Yep, not looking good. I don’t quite get what constitutes a tackle. I’ve seen Heron lay at least 1 proper tackle, if not 2. Yet given none.

      • Defying_Madness says:

        Now they are at 40 combined. I hope they keep going strong

      • Jack says:

        I think the tackle has to result in a turn over or a ballup. So if a player lays a tackle, but the opponent still lays it off to a tesmmate, then the tackle is not counted. I could be wrong though.

  139. SC-hack says:

    Is it worth trading Mira out for either Rice or Logan? Worried that Mirra may come back, with is low BE, and also worried about the JS of the 2 Saints
    The alternative is Mirra out for Walters via various DPP moves- although worried about bring in a premium who hasn't had their bye yet

    (Overall, I'm just worried)

  140. Sc_Wow says:

    Anyone watching? How does Will Brodie look?

  141. BadgerHoney7 says:

    so I'm happy guessing u lads didn't read my comment earlier in the week about respect, this is what've I'm saying 4-5 comment chains with more than 10 comments and they're not about footy – one was 26 and one was 56!!! srsly can we all just mind our own business and not gang up/bully on others or against each other, it'd be nice to see some constructive criticism for once rather than what I've read of racial allegations and sexual assault allegations??? seriously, calling someone a women beater is disgusting and not even knowing who they're.

    • Sc_Wow says:

      When they say they have no problem dog shooting people is it really that far of a stretch? I know people that have been effected by that and I think its disgusting to threat someone with that kind of behaviour. You choose to ignore that though mate.

      This place is great but the one-sidedness is insane.

      Anyway over all that shit, hoping the irrelevant people will ignore me now and that I can talk to people on here that have some idea.

      • BadgerHoney7 says:

        i actually didn't see that – I didn't choose to ignore at all, all I'm saying is RESPECT. respect for one and other, respect for OUR community stuff like the dog shooting but also racial allegations and sexual allegations can really hurt someone if not careful

        • Sc_Wow says:

          I agree with you Badger, someone who wasn't in a stable frame of mind would be struggling with the amount of crap I've copped

  142. TheGreatBozza says:

    Who’s everyone’s captain choice now? I’m thinking Gawn considering Danger didn’t step up

  143. SC_Sixty6 says:

    Ablett was my second choice this week to come in…..didn't pick him because he's injury prone and you just have to be smart about selections. Learning from previous years goes a long way.

    He did look good though. Anyone here bring him in?

  144. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Anyone thinking of trading in Ben Ainsworth? Getting plenty of mid time and has gone to a new level. Looking really good. Will still be below sub $400K next week.

    • Rick Grimes says:

      Talented player. 5 game average will be 90odd after tonight. Be a huge POD.

      • JugHead says:

        His recent scores vs his price caught my eye during the week.
        But I can't see him generating a ton of cash or being a top 6 fwd this year. Happy for him to prove me wrong.
        Not sure how much mid time he gets when injured suns start coming back either.
        He is on a good run of form for sure, but still sub premo, so not for me.
        I think from now on you just want rolled gold premos or cash generating rookies.
        I make an exception for Rocky based on his proven ability to score well over 100.

        This is my last post. Jock wouldn't want to hear this, but don't forget its just a game you lot. Have fun and keep your perspective.

    • seen_burns says:

      Played footy with him in as a junior and at Gippy power, GUN.

  145. Rick Grimes says:

    Just remember guys, don't feed the animals.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      True. Just could not help myself. That opportunity I had to take. Bags Rocky as a premo dud pick and in the same breath talks up Gazza who is 6 years older and if anything, even more injury prone. Hehehehehe. That was my parting shot to the BS artist.

  146. Brock says:

    I need help deciding on who to bring in out of Hogan and Buddy.

    If I bring in Buddy I'll have 20 playing in rd 13 (15 premos) and 18 playing in rd 14 (15 premos). However if I bring in Hogan I'll have 19 playing in rd 13 (14 premos) and 19 playing in rd 14 (16 premos).

    Please help!!

  147. Steve says:

    What are everyone's Captain this week, after Dangers 100, l was thinking maybe Heeney or Parker tonight over Gawn

  148. prizza says:

    Dont feed the animals lol , its all that happens, and when they have a crack back every one starts sooking
    Nobody to get personal and its all fun , cant see the problem.
    harden up

  149. prizza says:

    Cal ward has turned out to be a nice little replacement for dusty and nice pod , finally got something right.

  150. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    Traded in J.Kelly this week, happy with that decision so far

  151. Corey says:

    What will the Par score be this week? 1500?

  152. BrownlowBoy says:

    Is Josh Kelly back? Or are the Suns just that terrible?

  153. johnno says:

    Hey community, is a trade from Coffield to Austin worth it, or hold? Cheers all

  154. Rick Grimes says:

    Saints need Billings back…

  155. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Saints have reached a tipping point. Richardson deserves to get SACKED. If Freo lose to Adelaide tomorrow, Lyon deserves to get SACKED also. BANG BANG.

  156. Neverweaken says:

    VC Heeney looking good. Only cos I had no other options before the Melb game

  157. TOPHAWK1 says:

    If I was the St Kilda board, this is how I would deal with Richardson.

    "Hi Allan. Thank you for coming in this morning. Myself and other members of the board appreciate your coaching tenacity. Your "on bench" coaching tactics against Sydney were commendable. However, in light of the final result, a unanimous decision has been made to release you from your current contract. This is a really tough period for the St Kilda Football Club and the board now will seek new coaching options. On behalf of the board and myself, we would like to thank you for your service and wish you well in the future".


    • Finnius says:

      It isn't Richo's fault. You can't just chuck the coach under the bus. The players are average. Get rid of the list manager and those below him, as well as half the so-called leadership team. Richo can't be blamed for his players not wanting it.

      • Marty says:

        After going to the game i do place the blame on Richo. StKilda players do not know where to run, when to man up or have any structure whatsoever. When StKilda have the ball the spread and spots Swans run to are coherent and decisive. They have organisation and are well drilled. The worst part was watching Buddy kick for goal and the Saints player on the mark turned to face the goal instead of putting his hands high in the air and Buddy played on snuck 5 more metres and had a shot at goal. StKilda are shambolic and the buck has to stop with the coach. Remember when StKilda and Melbourne were on equal pegging in terms of the next teams to watch. Agree that some players are young, list management and recruiting also take some blame but players should know their role and work hard around their space. StKilda players don't work hard and are outnumbered all over the ground.

    • prizza says:

      Young inexperienced side being monstered by a very good side at home,

    • prizza says:

      Away even

  158. BrownlowBoy says:

    This may be my worst score ever this week.

    • BrownlowBoy says:

      I did say the poo jogger had left his mark on my team prior to the round starting.

      Update: He owns my team now.

      • Randomcliche2 says:

        Some special scores this week mate. I'm looking at 3 50 odd scores from tonight's match alone. I'm 'lucky' 2 trades and I got 18 on the park.

        • BrownlowBoy says:

          I only used 1 this week. Got 19 playing so better than some. I have a few 50's and even some below that at the moment.

          Don't think it's over with Murphy to come.

  159. HarryH76 says:

    Ok so strategy has been to bring in JJK next week. Particularly with Darling injured, seems a good choice. I know he was cheaper a week ago but it didn't work for me.

    But geez I'm finding it hard to not consider Buddy. I never start with him, but seem to bring him in every year around the byes with success. He just looks super dangerous. For the byes, JJK makes more sense. But have to think long term…. Buddy might be the man! Thoughts?

  160. Johnny says:

    Am so close to bringing in D.Beams. i think he can set the 2nd half of the season alight! only thing stopping me is his bye nek week

    • Rick Grimes says:

      Agree. Looks in a good space now without the captaincy pressure. I'll look at him post bye but wouldn't blame you for going early.

    • Maverick_ says:

      Am tossing up between beams myself or curnow next week. Both can be fantastic pods and bag 110+ from here on Johnny

  161. TheGreatBozza says:

    Damn Heeney is looking good. Might have to pay up for him after his bye. Keeps pumping out tons

  162. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Ronke is maxing out in price. Looks like he will turn into JJK next week.

    • SC_Sixty6 says:

        Mate enoughs enough, we get it, you're better than all of us and foresee things before everyone else… Time to give it a rest

        • SC_Sixty6 says:

          Connor I suggest you go read Hawks and davidSA posts recently. I was posting fine during the week but they keep jumping in with insults…..they don't move on.

          • Connor says:

            I do understand where you are coming from – everything has gotten far too personal however at some point you've gotta stand up and just let them have their fun

          • Finnius says:

            So don't bite back. LEave it alone! I value your advice but surely you have to recognise that comments like that are unnecessary. Make a suggestion don't frame it as absolutely right. There is no need to be a [email protected]#. THis comment isn't just for you either. Everyone arking up JUST LEAVE IT ALONE NO ONE GIVES A [email protected]#[email protected]

            • Russty_ says:

              Mate, look at the posts above you, 66's first one and then his second one, he instigated the negative shit/ abuse…in the first one and then tries to blame it on someone else in the second one. This is what they do, never take responsibility for their own behaviour.
              This crap never used to happen here until they / he rolled up.
              BTW, you'll never be able to tell an egomaniac to not frame their advice as absolutely right…they don't know how to do that.

              • Crow94 says:

                We all agree mate. Just not much we can do about it. The admin need to sort this out, but i doubt it will happen… for now we just need to move on and get on with what we are all on here for. The bastard that is the SC season.

  163. BrownlowBoy says:

    Anyone know if Pieman has twitter?

  164. Marcus says:

    Austin was looking like “Tim Smith the return” for a bit there
    Just needs to hold his spot 1 more week and should be a nice 280k to maybe even trade to Mihocek

  165. Ahmad rubas says:

    anyone know how bad lobb injury was?

    • Russty_ says:

      Hey Ahmad, I read that he copped a nasty blow to his ribs and was taken to Hospital, check the reports next week but if it's broken ribs he'll be out for weeks so maybe better to up or downgrade him next week.

      • Ahmad rubas says:

        Damn got him 3 weeks ago scored a nice ton last week then bang injured again hopefully it's not too bad and I can hold

        • Sc_Wow says:

          Gws have a history of being conservative which doesn’t help. I bet cog passed all tests, but they thought what’s the point. They have the lions rd 14 so wouldn’t expect them to rush anyone back for that

          • Ahmad rubas says:

            Yeah I know how conservative they are after holding Kelly for 6 weeks ideally would hold lobb cause I'm playing for leagues but also planning to go bang bang next two rounds to field 18 and full premo side

            • Jack says:

              How many trades you got left Ahmad? I've got a feeling it's quite a few if you've held Kelly. If so, I'd trade (especially if struggling to field 18) I don't think Lobb has been the pick we all hoped he would be.
              Plenty of good cheap options in forward line, consider Buddy or Kennedy
              Even holding Fritsch (assuming you have him still) might be a better option than Lobb

              • Ahmad rubas says:

                16 trades but most likely going to use 6 trades next two weeks then hold onto 10 trades for rest of the year. I want to keep lobb because I think he is a solid pick if fit but will probably get rid if I struggle for 18 as for fritsch not a keeper for me need the cash from him but I really like the Kennedy pick over buddy due to the bye.

  166. DEES NUTS R BIG says:

    How many trades do people have left?
    How many upgrades until full premo?
    How much $$$ in the piggy?

    I have 3 upgrades to go with 11 trades and 430k in the piggy.
    1 trade next week to make another 200+k.
    week after = triple upgrade and full premo with 7 trades left.

    • Rick Grimes says:

      I'm down to 11 trades. Realistically need 4 upgrades as don't see Nank as being a season keeper. But I'm hoping Fritz can sit at f6 for a while. He's putting out keeper numbers at present. My SC bank balance mirroring my real one…

    • Ahmad rubas says:

      16 trades 3 away from fake premo side and 169k in the bank

      • Jack says:

        Haha Fake premo side, I love it Ahmad…..At least you have plenty of trades to turn some of those fakies into real ones!

        • Ahmad rubas says:

          i have more trades than the average team i think but also more fake premos than the average team as well unfortunately
          hows your team going mate?

    • Sc_Wow says:

      2 off full premo 9 trades left should have 6 left for injuries. Will be tight but will be a fun ride (that’s what she said)

    • SC_Sixty6 says:

      9 trades 2 off full premo. Can't wait to see a full premo team hit the park for the last 9 rounds!!!

      • Finnius says:

        what is your team name SC_Sixty6?

      11 trades, 3 off full premo after trading Dusty this week. 220k in the kitty.

      Will be full premo before rd 14.

    Took a huge risk and put the big C on Heeney. Had that feeling Saints wouldn't be able to match up on him. Fingers crossed the rest of this round goes to plan.

    Buddy with the awkward VC score (127).

    What do we think community, lock it in or roll the dice with big Maxy as C??

  170. sc tragic says:

    Anyone having problems with their gameday/team page in HS? I haven't been able to access either since yesterday am. Wanted to change captain dammit couldn't get in still can't. Everything else on comp. OK.

  171. Jack says:

    Essendon and Brisbane both don't tag right?

  172. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Hi community! Josh Kelly is back with a vengeance. Pumped out a majestic 146 SC points. Going into the match with a BE of 133, he is started to rise in price again. Will cost you just above $550K after his bye. Now that is what I call value for money. I have one spot left to fill in my midfield (Rocky M9) If you consider that Macrae still sets you back around $700K, it makes Kelly's price tag look very attractive. I do not have either Macrae or Kelly. As it sits right now, Kelly is ahead purely because of his price. Macrae may come in at the end of the season if a premo midfielder goes down with injury or due to poor performance. How good was that banana kick goal on the run last night!! Sublime goal by Kelly.

    • Ahmad rubas says:

      yeah watched the game as he was my captain and that goal was amazing didnt even realise it was kelly until the replay

    • SC_Sixty6 says:

      He was my #1 in this week. Juicy 146. Mmmmm

    • Holty01 says:

      Certainly value Hawk. Not for me though as already full in the mids.

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        You are laughing being full mid premo already Holty. If you have a midfielder go down (Hope it does not happen) the Kelly would be a perfect corrective trade option. Good luck for the rest of the round mate.

        • Holty01 says:

          It would really depend what u consider full premo though mate. My mids are
          Im sure Kelly will average more then a couple of these but not worth the trade imo

    • SamuraiPizzaCat says:

      Yep I'll be looking at both Macrae and Kelly as round 14 trade in options. Leaning towards Kelly for the same reasons you mentioned. Although Macrae should drop in price a bit too.

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        You are right there on Macrae. I think his BE is now over 200. Definately wait for a few weeks to watch his price level out. Cant wait to be full premo and have these byes out of the way. The best time of the year are usually the last 8 rounds of the season. Cheers SPC

        • JEL says:

          Got Macrae, looking at Kelly for my final Mid.

          Just so you don't get tooo enthused, there are 6 more Thursday games to go this year including the next 2 weeks… Oh my!

    • BadgerHoney7 says:

      jom – kelly, definitely taking that

  173. CJay says:

    Is Spargo to T McDonald are good trade ?
    By waiting until R14 I get a look tomorrow to see If there is a role change with Lever out.
    Wait and see or just do it?

    • Finnius says:

      I have done it CJay. Spargo maxing out and TMac has been looking so good in that role that I don't think Goody would dare change it.

      I'd just do it. I assume McDonald has a low be? I don't believe they will move him he is playing too well, even if they did I reckon there is a chance he would score better in the backline. He is a athlete and a half and won't play lock down, that's his brothers role

  174. Defying_Madness says:

    Do we still trust Hurley to bounce back after the bye?
    The plan was to always upgrade to him after the bye when he was cheap but is he even top 6 anymore.
    Maybe he is still carrying an injury and the bye will do him good

  175. BrownlowBoy says:

    Anyone watching Redman?

    • BadgerHoney7 says:

      can't say i am – but is looking good by sc scoring – 113 k defender could be useful for a downgrade if someone needs him

  176. BrownlowBoy says:

    Spewing if you brought Beams in.

  177. BadgerHoney7 says:

    zerrett + dev smith + goofy thanku veryyyy much

  178. Jack says:

    Anyone know why Witherdens scores have been so low lately? Role change or 2nd year blues?

  179. Defying_Madness says:

    Guelfi Merret and Smith saving my week from hell

  180. Rick Grimes says:

    Gee, Harris Andrews has been killing it of late will have a 5 round average of 110 odd after today, low of 91. Wasn't on my radar but is another one to add to the mix.

  181. Finnius says:

    great pick of Harris Andrews Rusty! He has been on fire in recent weeks. Surprised no one is talking about him tbh… looking at his scores over the last two months he has been incredible.

  182. Defying_Madness says:

    anyone see the smith injury?

  183. BrownlowBoy says:

    Duman out

  184. Defying_Madness says:

    I think I might chuck the captain on Walters

  185. dontblushbaby says:

    Neale having a fitness test

  186. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Duman out stuffs everything up, not only do I have 17 on field this week, next week I had planned to get Ed curnow and JJK in with Dumans price rise being a key factor, bloody hell.

    • Russty_ says:

      Bummer Josh, I just thought stuff it and just traded Duman out to Mihocek…if Nuihis or whatever his name is does well today, Duman might not get back in anyway.

      • BlueBaggerJosh says:

        traded in Mihocek for Mirra. Might have to get a bit creative with DPP or hope Murphy pulls an 80 out of his arse lol

  187. Ben says:

    Having duman out is a killer

  188. BrownlowBoy says:

    53 touches and 3 goals for Jack Billings in the 2's

  189. Sc_Wow says:

    Apparently a certain saints player had 53 touches and 3 goals in the vfl today

  190. Ja191 says:

    are freo seriously playing walters full forward??

  191. hedski says:

    Should have cashed Murphy in, looks like he's going to lose $ now. 😭

    • finnigin says:

      Gee its hard to see how anyone can score so low, out of his depth i think hed

    • Keenbutclueless says:

      Is a pain in my heart to have him onfield last week and this week. If he survives another week, might even be needed again next week. Sums up the season really.

    • Rabbits16 says:

      happy i held onto Mr Doedee though

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Looks like the prick is turning into Mihochek next week. Useless spud.

    • Marty says:

      I have him too. All players counting this week. Taking the good with the bad. What is worse is a play you traded out traded back in and he spuds it for a premo. Mr Crouch I'm talking to you!!!!!

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        Crouch was terrible today. With a BE of 106 and his 68 today, he will leak even more valuable cash. His BE next week wont make for pretty reading either. Probably best to hold him with his bye coming up. He might come back big after his rest in round 15. I feel your pain though Marty.

      • JohnDJ59 says:

        I did the same, out round three after his injury, looked like he was travelling alright since he came back, so trade him back in this week, my rookies did better.

    • Beezneez says:

      Traded him to Austin. Was never going to be a big scorer. Tom Lynch and Rory Laird back puts his position in doubt. Gallucci may even be preferred and when Riley Knight comes back would think he's definitely gone. Waiting to see Mihocek and trading in round 14 would be the way to go imo.

  192. Blueth says:

    I hate you Lachlan Murphy

  193. Pete says:

    Is doedee too good to trade out?

  194. BadgerHoney7 says:

    don't they say you half the amount they get in the vfl to compare to afl level – 26 touches and 2 goals for billings – why couldn't you do that at afl level.

  195. Finnius says:

    Do something Matt Crouch.

  196. BadgerHoney7 says:

    does anyone know what supercoach points billings would've tallied too, surely would've had to been huge

  197. Defying_Madness says:

    Walters will get a holiday ffs

  198. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Time for a holiday!! Walters. What a moron.

  199. BadgerHoney7 says:

    phew games have started nothing else can go wrong this week – nup walters on report

  200. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Byes bloody ripping us a new one on all levels, selection issues, premo injuries and now walters looks like he is gonna get weeks. Bloody hell looks like im not gonna be fielding 18 for any of the byes.

  201. Crow94 says:

    Walters looking at a 2 week holiday.

  202. Sc_Wow says:

    Glad I didn't bring Walters in.

  203. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    projected 1654 which includes Mihocek projected 97, not looking good. Hopefully Gawn goes 150+, cmon mate i know you can do it

  204. PeteB says:

    Gawn or Grundy as Captain ??

  205. ToughBretts says:

    What kind of score would win this round? Sitting on 1786 from 18 with Gawn, hibberd and Fritsch set to replace a 42, 57 and 61

  206. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    How does M.Crouch only get 68 points from 25 disposals at %72 efficiency? Sure he only had 6 CP's but only 2 clangers and no FA, surely thats an 85+ game

  207. SC_Sixty6 says:

    What is the communities thoughts on the Gawn Vs Grundy dual tomorrow? I think they will both tonne up but it's a matter of picking the right one.

    After taking VC off Kelly to danger I can guarantee I'll stuff up my cap choice. Grundy or Gawn for cap?

  208. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Clayton Oliver or Max Gawn for Captain tomorrow. What do you reckon community?

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      I've gone with Oliver, but I could also go with either Gawn or Grundy. I should win 9/10 this week, the only close one is against Russty in Chatter Boxes and he has the C on Grundy.

    • SC_Sixty6 says:

      Oliver in good form but pies will get pendles to go to him. Not hard tag but pendles will nullify him I think. Both rucks will be in it all day. Tough game.

    • Marty says:

      Gawn. No one can tag Gawn but others can tag Oliver. It also depends which midfield gets on top. Pies with Pendles, Treloar and Sidebum might have the advantage.

    • Russty_ says:

      Sorry Hawk, in relation to your original question, I reckon I agree with Marty…Oliver could be tagged but Gawny is in a Duel with an equally good Ruckman and the best one will win but I reckon they'll both score well.

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      After looking at the stats, I'd say Big Maxy for the C. The Dees have played five games at the G so far this year, Max has gone over100 in each game. Oliver has three over 100, the two that he didn't ton up in were against North and Carlton, both times he was tagged and Pendles will probably go to him tomorrow. I'm expecting a 120 from Maxy and a 90-110 from Clarry, depending how the tag goes.

  209. Dale says:

    Thinking of going spargo to either j.hogan or T.McDonald before tomorrows game.
    whose going to finish the season stronger..

    • Russty_ says:

      I've had Hogan since round 3 Dale but T-Mac has been a revelation this year…JJK could have a great finish too but I think T-Mac is more a solid choice now, depends on your money situation of course, JJK could also flourish back into form now Darling is out for another 3 to 5 weeks.
      Consider also JJK plays next week and the week after and no Melb players play next week.

    • The King says:

      I prefer Hogan to McDonald. McDonald seems like an 80-90 player when he doesn't kick a bag, very small sample size but his only games over 90 this year are when he kicks 4+ goals, which is unlikely to happen week in week out

    • theRealPod says:

      Both good options imo. I had a look at both of them before bringing in Hogan, only because I saved a few bucks.

  210. Dale says:

    Or do i be patient and grab a JJK after his bye this week…

  211. Marcus says:

    What are we thinking par is looking like?
    Im going to be around the 1650 range I think

  212. smart as s says:

    prize and position does not matter, which one would you rather have in your team, devon smith or hurley?

  213. Jack says:

    I'm down by 28 points, I have Howe he has McDonald. All other players are the same, neither of us have used C yet. Is it worth changing it to Grundy (we both have Gawn) or should I back in Howe against his old club?

  214. stevo says:

    Whoever is doing this to the thread, get some help , seriously. You need professional help, good luck.

  215. Sc_Wow says:

    Not sure why someone is making all these comments that have clearly been put in the past the most recent. Everyone took a huge step forward yesterday. Let’s not ruin that

  216. INPieman says:

    What a week to bring Walters in. Played forward, shat the bed & will get rubbed out. Just adds further misery to the round from hell

  217. Marty says:

    Yep Pieman. I wasn't convinced so I left it a week but could have easily brought him in with his cheap price. Cruel game.Let's hope he only gets a week.

  218. Lekdog says:

    Help me community, bearded freak or man child for captain?

  219. dontblushbaby says:

    Does anyone have the SC points on last time Gawn & Grundy played each other please ? I've got the C on Grundy atm

  220. Hawks says:

    Is Sicily better being used as a forward or a defender?

    I am close to full premo, but just cant decide where Sicily should play.

    • Beezneez says:

      I've had him forward since round one. I'm bringing in TMac to use as a fwd/mid swing. Think def players are easier to pick than forwards so that's where I prefer him. Did put him in the def once by swinging with Keeffe when I had injury hit the bacline.

    • JEL says:

      He's currently the 3rd best DEF and the 5th best FWD going on averages.

      I'd stick him in DEF if possible as there are more higher scoring options FWD.

  221. Sc_Wow says:

    Why is no one talking about the best ruckman playing today? I’m chucking the C on Mason ‘big telescopic’ Cox

  222. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    Think i might chuck the C on Treloar today, although its been switching between Gawn, Oliver and him all weekend. Might have to put their names into a randomizer and pick whoever is selected

  223. BundyBear says:

    Im thinking of putting the C on my captain today. Just to be differnent

    • AuroraBorealis?! says:

      I like it Bundy, a shark move like that is exactly what you need to push you up the rankings

      • BundyBear says:

        I play SC because its challenging. I am not good at it but I try. I dont think I have ever got above the 20.000 mark. If my team decided to play as a team on the same week it could be different. But only half the team plays well on any given week. The other half plays good on the alternate week .

  224. Jack says:

    It's been a long ride but I've finally got Grundy in my team and he is captain straight away.
    After Round 2 I realised he was top2 ruck but couldn't justify getting him in until Lycett (who has been solid) reached Max price. Sandi & Gawn, then the bye, straight after that he's in I thought. Sandi out made a mess of that plan.
    Things change in this game, my R3 (McInnerly) has reached Max price, has the same bye as Grundy and the carnage of this week, meant I made the trade.
    1.7mill is the spend of my current rucks, albeit just until byes are gone, must be some sort of record. Gawn/Grundy/Lycett

  225. Mr_Pink_ says:

    Some food for thought… Shaun Higgins
    Without his concussed Hawks game averaging 107 (current average 101). In 1% of teams. Pick him up for 500k post bye. North should be playing for finals and he has very few taking points (Ziebell forward). But here's the most tempting bit – his Supercoach finals opponents read Lions, Dogs, Crows, Saints. Not sure there's an easier set of teams to play against atm. I know he's been a burn man in the past but gee he has looked good at times this year. What do people think?

  226. Jason says:

    Petracca and 39 points vs Oliver…. who wins??

  227. Ahmad rubas says:

    Gawn less than 140 please

  228. nickgonzalez771 says:

    I'm just going to say it – I love Mason Cox. Not ever going to be the best player but what he does well he does really well. Good on the big fella.

    • Russty_ says:

      He'll only get better Nick…will be pretty handy for the Pies having such a giant in the fwd line when he gets more consistent.

  229. Shake_n_Bake_ says:

    Wells l dont want to see you in black n white again.

  230. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    well, looks like mihocek instead of heron was the wrong decision. probably gonna score less points and will be lucky not to get dropped if he doesnt lift

  231. Defying_Madness says:

    Walters given 1 week

  232. Connor says:

    Walters 1 week is a joke – exact same punishment as Fyfe from this week??? Surely if Fyfe's was graded as intentional-low impact then Walters has to be intentional-medium/high impact with intent to hurt… cannot believe the inconsistency of ONE MAN!!!

  233. Defying_Madness says:

    Fritsch to JJK, Gray or Hoff is very tempting next week

  234. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    that'll teach me to go against the community, left a 123 on the table for gawn.

  235. BrownlowBoy says:

    Are Melbourne in any danger of coming 3rd man up over Cox?

  236. FallenPremo says:

    everything bad that happened before Fridays first bounce left me with 17 players PLUS I had more than a few scores below 50 including at least 1 who had a 99 ave from 12 before this round. Forgot to trade Finlayson and Cogs before the lockout so panic traded Richards to Mihocek and put the C on Max.
    How long until the preseason comp starts?

  237. Connor says:

    If I hear a single Collingwood supporter complain about the umpires today I might go to jail.

  238. Crow94 says:

    Cant wait for this week to be over… what a f#cking disaster!

  239. Finnius says:

    Like if you went C on Gawn fml. I was so close to backing Clarry in as well.

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      Had it on Clarry until last night, then looked at my opponents and seven had the C on Gawn, two on Clarry and one on Grundy, so played it safe, wrong call, now I could lose two close games by a point or two. Just lost in Guns and Rookies by a point, he had Oliver as C.

    • Defying_Madness says:

      Went on Grundy here so not much better

    • Steeeve says:

      I was choosing between Clarry and Crouch. No Sandi made me choose Crouch. Sigh

  240. BoringBill says:

    Degoey looking great and with a d.e in the 50's he can only get better from a SC perspective. He might be a better gamble than dusty for the back half

  241. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    I'm actually really impressed with the pies this week, if we can continue playing like this i think we're in for a chance at a sneaky 8th place finish

    • Jack says:

      I would shocked if Pies didn't finish top 8. I reckon their a top4 sneaky finish. They've stood up in every big game this year

      • Ja191 says:

        played 10/12 games in Melbourne with the 2 overstate – a good win over adelaide and a tight win over brisbane. Would like to see them win overstate before I'd go that far

  242. Marty says:

    Tom McDonald might be a welcome edition to my team

  243. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    1530 pre scaling, could've been 1610 (still not the best score lol) if I took my vc. How did everybody else go?

  244. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    Any idea what par is this week? I ended up with 1715 which i think is slightly above, going off what ive seen

  245. KSinny says:

    Ended up with 1516…. How'd everyone else go?

  246. Marty says:

    What could have been type week. A few dud scores from premos and usual rookie scores. Scored 1622 which might see me drop slightly but I'm happy with that score in a difficult week. How did we all go this week?

  247. Jack says:

    Anyone mathematicians know what Fritsch breakeven and price will be?

  248. DavidSA says:

    Jelwood, Shaw, Howe, Walters & Hogan 🤢

  249. Moosehead says:

    I cannot work out why so many SCers placed their C on Gawn or Grundy when the two best rucks were opposing each other. Dumb. What’s wrong with a decent midfielder?
    I went to the game. Melbourne looked liked pretenders and Collingwood may make top 4.

    • Connor says:

      You only have to look back a few years to one of the great ruck duels – Gawn V Goldy. Both scored 170ish!

    • Sc_Wow says:

      Pull your head in moose, the bloke hasn’t gone below 97 all year. No need to shame other coaches. What you score this week?

    • Marty says:

      They scored well early on but wore each other out. Fast game meant they were tired in the last quarter.

    • SC_Sixty6 says:

      Remember Gawn Vs Goldy a couple years ago? Both 170……ease up. Woulda been better had you posted this before the game. No body likes a post in hindsight.

      • Moosehead says:

        I did post it as a warning/consideration. I have them both. I said it was crazy to C these guys, and yes, I remember the Gawn and Goldy dual cos I had Goldy as C. Note: Go midfielders 90% of the time for VC/C

  250. Neverweaken says:

    Was looking at Hogan for R14. Maybe a R15 pickup now Hello JJK R14

  251. Pauly Walnuts says:

    Has anyone else who has Spargo on field only to see him on the bench when you go into Gameday ? which makes his score not added in the final total ??
    I've gone in and out of the site but no change

  252. redherringfc says:

    Shall we start the J Smith conversation now?

    He was on fire in his 1st game last year, something like 20 points in 13 minutes. Looked great early today as well.

    I’ll have a serious think about him, even next week, if I need to get some $$ to upgrade 2 players. I baulked at Austin because of his js, now i’m worried about Mihocek after today’s effort. Smith might be my go to man.

    • Ja191 says:

      Read that as JR smith the spud hahaha. Main issue with him is injury. If he can stay on the park will be very appealing with that def/mid swing

  253. BoltonsBlues says:

    1530 and ranked 392, thats about to fall quicker then those Melbourne supporters that thought they were premiership contenders this year

    What a disaster week, but it can only get better (Hopefully)

  254. redherringfc says:

    Looking forward to the end of lockout.

    I think i’ll be able to go 3 up this week, getting Yeo, Simpson and JJK. Only 1 mid to go if I can get this done this week.

  255. Sc_Wow says:

    Back upto 121 yewwwwwww
    Congrats to patch on your 35 rank

  256. SC_Sixty6 says:

    #261 now. Jumped up 430 ranking spots. Good work Patch on 35 rank mate.

    This week I'll have 16 premos playing so hoping to crack the top 100 this week with a huge score.

    How did everyone go? Lockout is open.

  257. Ahmad rubas says:

    average score of 2087 how?

  258. BrownlowBoy says:

    Who we bringing in this week?

  259. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Wingard and Curnow or JJK and Gaff?

  260. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    ranked 1500, if i kept the VC score of Higgins instead of going Gawn i would be inside the 1k :(. Lesson learnt

  261. Laird Lad Donuts says:

    Redman? 113k defender for essendon, anyone know anything about him?
    Need to go early on a rookie and looking at him first

    • Marty says:

      Looks impressive.

    • redherringfc says:

      Joel Smith from Melbourne looks good.

      He scored really well in the 1st game of last season until he was injured mid way through the 1st quarter. Was a dud when he returned last year, but again today was very impressive, especially early on.

      But it’s a risk this week as he has his bye and you’d be trusting he is named for at least the following 2 weeks to get any money out him.

  262. Crow94 says:

    Team is currently:

    Any advice is welcome guys!

    Laird, Yeo, Simpson, Crisp, McGovern, Heron (Duman, Keefe)

    Dangerfield, MaCrae, Fyfe, Mitchell, Crouch, Merrett, Holman (Ahern, Barry, Phillips)

    Gawn, Nank (Cameron)

    Heeney, Sicily, Westhoff, McLean, Boak, Fritsch (Guelfi, Smith)

    11 trades and 240k

    • Marty says:

      Depends what suits your structure. Fritsch to Giro via Ahern and Smith to TMac, or Buddy if you want to save money. If you go TMac still gives you around $184k left

      • Crow94 says:

        Im actually thinking of getting JJk for guelfi this week. Think be will have a good second half of the year

        • Marty says:

          Agree and he is cheap. He has 92, 97, 93 last 3 years. Depends if there is someone who can beat that. I will do the usual, toss up 30 players in my head and come back to the original one I chose.

    • redherringfc says:

      I’d be going Fritsch to jjk or buddy. I’d also look at guelfi for a gun defender by swinging keeffe forward. If you don’t have enough money hopefully you can do it by cashing in one of the duds, such as Barry or Smith.

      Then you only have 1 upgrade to go and Oliver seems the choice after his bye.

      • Crow94 says:

        Thanks mate. Will be playing around with my team until teams are named. Have come up with some decent trades so far leaving me with over 120k in the bank still. Could also swing Sicily back which would finish my backline.

  263. PeteB says:

    Geez…so Ahern gets 57 and Mihocek gets 36. Are either of them worth the downgrade this week? I’ve got to get rid of Murphy and it looks like Spargo and Ronke have maxed out.

  264. JEL says:

    Bye Bye Hibberd, the experiment has been a failure.

  265. Keenbutclueless says:

    My only joy from this week is to trade out two more rookies and bring in Yeo. Next week 2 more out and bring in Treloar Will leave me as close to full premium as I am likely to get. Will be stuck with Hibberd, Zerrett, Lambert and Lobb, so not far away from genuine premium. Zerrett is not the worst M8 and Kambert is almost a F6. With only 8 trades left after next week, I might have to live with them.

  266. KSinny says:

    Josh Kennedy or Wingard for Tim Smith this week?

  267. Sam_01 says:

    Boys I’ve had to go for some rather aggressive trading and due to unfortunate rookie timings and supply and me stuffing up my swing set I’ve had to burn a trade or so more than I’d hoped for but I’ll be coming out of the byes with a full pre o squad 5 trades up my sleeve how’s everyone else looking ?
    Slipped 800 spots to 2000th after only fielding 16 this week and putting up 1450

    • Crow94 says:

      If i bring in JJK and another premo this week i will have 1 rookie left to upgrade with 9 trades left

    • KSinny says:

      If I get JJK this week I'll have 2 rookies left to upgrade and 11 trades.

      • Sam_01 says:

        Nice, Im gonna go early on Austin and rice next week I think will save my skin for that bye round and also lets me finnish my team trading Phillips up to josh kelly I reckon leaves me with 50k in the bank and the 5 trades annoying because I will have to keep savage as d6 will need to hold the 5 for injury

  268. DavidSA says:


  269. Marcus says:

    Awful week for rookies, only really Brodie( whose expensive) and Giro (who has bye next week) on bubble

  270. Michael says:

    Bontempeli and tom McDonald
    Josh Kelly/cripps and Toby McLean?

    I like option one but option two is safer…

  271. Jeffrey says:

    Is Jimmy Webster a top 6 defender?

  272. BeenHereBefore says:

    Looking to bring in 2 premos this week. Want Yeo and cripps but both have large break evens. Is it worth waiting?

    • Sam_01 says:

      How many trades you got and how far are you off premo? And will it compromise your bye structure

      • BeenHereBefore says:

        13 trades left
        Helps my bye structure since theyre both playing
        5 off premo – not considering hibberd as premo for obvious reasons

        • Sam_01 says:

          They are both guns, since you are still a while off full premo might be worth waiting a week if you can do saving cash will let you get there quicker but I guess it depends on your rookie stocks, both great picks though!

  273. Steeeve says:
