Round 13 SuperCoach Panic Room

Bye round 2: Electric Boogaloo

If the sequel is rarely as good as the original, it’s going to take something epic to wash the stain that was round 12 out of our minds / underwear. I really don’t want to imagine how much worse that week can get. On some level we knew it was going to be awful but the four teams having their bye, premiums outs, and premiums just straight up sucking created the perfect storm of suckiness. I’ve seen premo’s suck before but they were the suckiest bunch of sucks that ever sucked.

(actual scenes from Jock HQ over the weekend)

One thousand five hundred was a good score this week. ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED. Let’s just forget about that week, sweep it under the rug and let’s keep on going. Premiums are entitled to being sucky from time to time. Let there be a thousand blossoms bloom, as far as I’m concerned. But I ain’t spendin’ any time on it, because in the mean time, we’ve got a STACK of fantasy relevant options that will get us through these byes.

Before we get to that, Damo has been roped in to this weeks podcast with Patch and Lek to try and make sense of this bye malarky. Join Barron as he does a whip around on who is dominating at reserves level. The return of Thursday night footy has seen the return of Patch’s uncontrolled rage in this weeks Captain McCaptainface, and Damo cuts through the confusion to bring us another edition of the cheat sheet.

THE NEWS

For the 1% of teams that took a punt on Tom Jonas will be disappointed, he’s out with a hammy tonight in the only bit of SuperCoach relevant news. Fire up Ryder in Draftstars because the Dogs have dropped Jordan Roughead. Jack Watts is another to feel the cold, sharp blade of the selectors. The footy community is hoping the returning Todd Marshall has a blinder, and Lindsay Thomas is back to do something stupid.

Liam Ryan is back the Eagles tomorrow night in one of four changes. At almost 200k I would struggle to justify bringing him in despite his -85 breakeven. Midfielders Luke Shuey and Chris Masten are fit, and Jarrod Brander (148.8k DEF / FWD) gets his debut as expected. Not much happening in the outs column, although Tom Barrass would’ve gone to Buddy. For the Swans, Jarrad McVeigh is out and Daniel Robinson omitted for Allir Aliir and Kieran Jack.

On Saturday, Freo welcomes back Sandi and Nat Fyfe for game 150. Apeness and Giro have kept their spots. Walters is the notable out with suspensions. The Blues have done some things that won’t matter for you. Jarryd Lyons is back for the Suns as they take on the Saints. On the flip side they’ve dropped Jacob Heron and Will Brodie (whyy???). Nick Coffield is the main out at the Saints that will worry you, but fear not, Jack Billings is back baby! Billy Longer replaces Tom Hickey in the ruck. The Hawks haven’t done much for Silk Burgoyne’s game 350, replacing Tim O’Brien with Will Langford. For the Crows, still no Rory Laird and popular rookies Lachie Murphy and DFog have been dropped. Patrick Wilson (105.4k MID / FWD) is confirmed starter.

On Sunday we have just the one game, Geelong vs Richmond. The Tiges have gone BANG and have brought back Dusty and Jack Graham. Premiership hero and future father of my children Danielson Rioli will make his season debut. Ivan Soldo, Corey Ellis, and Ryan Garthwaite (123.9k DEF) have also been added to the squad. Confirmed outs are Menapoo and Anthony Miles. At Geelong, Aaron Black is the only confirmed out after his knee resembled the TwistiesTM I’m eating right now. They’ve added some names but none of them are exciting.

THE HOUSE OF EVIL

Our top 3 rookies on the bubble all have their bye this week. Brody Mihocek (-71), Paul Ahern (-66), and Sam Taylor (-45). If you need to go early on one of them, Paul Ahern would be my pick. It leaves us with only two bubble boys this week, but be careful, check you’re not trading yourself into a round 14 corner before bringing them in.

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

-85 – Liam Ryan

-41 – Michael Apeness*

-40 – Stefan Giro*

On the horizon

Mason Redman (1 game – BYE this week)

Joel Smith (1 game – BYE this week)

Josh Battle (1 game)

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

219 – Jack Macrae

194 – Paddy Cripps

175 – Luke Shuey

171 – Sandipants

170 – Caddyshack

167 – Trent Cotchin

154 – Bont

154 – Danger

146 – Jake Lloyd

146 – Elliot Yeo

143 – Jimmy Webster

142 – Toby McLean

SMOOTH KEVY’S LOCK OF THE WEEK

Before hitting that trade button we ask ourselves, “Will this player finish a top 8-10 player in their position.” We are in luck this week with folks, with the four teams coming off the round 12 bye there’s players on all lines you can target. In brackets I’ve include their current positional ranking based on average.

DEF: James Sicily (3rd), Kade Simpson (4th), Elliot Yeo (7th), Shannon Hurn (8th)

MID: Jack Macrae (1st), Tom Mitchell (2nd), Ed Curnow (6th), Crippa (7th), Andrew Gaff (10th)

RUCK: Nic Nat (4th), Ben McEvoy (6th)

FWD: Toby McLean (2nd)

Whoever you target this week will be on a needs basis, but upgrading the defence and midfield look particularly juicy and I like both Ed Curnow and Andrew Gaff this week. At this point I like to target players on winning teams that have a good chance of playing finals, so for that reason, Andrew Gaff is my lock of the week. 

HEY NOW, YOU’RE A DRAFTSTAR

Ugh, actually, Patch is right (don’t tell him I said that). Thursday night footy suuuuuuucks. In my efforts to get this baby out before the bounce tonight the lineup cruncher hasn’t updated as yet so I’ll update this tomorrow with a look at the Swans v Eagles clash. 1st v 3rd. Can Eagles play away from home? Will Buddy kick 8 again? Will there be a third, yet to be decided metaphorical question? Stay tuned.

Okay, here we go. The absolute lads at Fantasy Insider have given us this ideal lineup for West Coast v Sydney:

My take:

Straight up, I’m taking advantage of the two 5k guys tonight. I like the prospects of Brander more so than Allir, but it enables me to stock up elsewhere.

RUCK

I’d only bother with Sinclair or Nic Nat tonight. In round 1 Nic Nat won the Draftstars battle 113 v 106. It’s worth mentioning Sinclair has kicked 5 goals in his past two and will head forward to create problems for a West Coast defence that will have their hands full with Buddy, that said, I don’t think you’ll lose a lot by taking the slightly cheaper option. 

DEF

Gun and rook will be a popular play in defence. There’s a bunch of players that are in the 8-10k range that don’t excite me at all. Jarrad McVeigh out leaves a rebounding hole and I’m all over Jake Lloyd here. Dane Rampe could also see a bump if you’re feeling creative.

Word of warning regarding JGov, he averages 57 away from Optus stadium this year. Avoid.

FWD

I suspect Buddy will be highly owned tonight. In the past Tom Barrass has gone to him but he’s out for this game. Buddy monstered the Eagles in round 1 with 8 goals and 151DS points. As always, Sydney’s fleet of small forwards are in play: Ronke, Papley, Hayward. Though they seem to take turns in having a big game and I always pick the wrong one!

MID

If you’ve followed me so far then Andrew Gaff is too pricy tonight, he’ll likely get some attention from Hewett as well. If West Coast are going to be a chance for this then their mids need to step up massively. Luke Shuey returns and is a bargain at 11.5k. I love Jack Redden’s price and is ceiling is high when he gets it all together. Luke Parker dominated the game between these two in round 1. Finally, Dom Sheed has had a good month, dropping under 80 once. His price is nothing special, but I prefer him over other 10k options.

My lineup:

That’s it for this week. Bloody proud of you lot. Six coaches from the JR Group inside the top 100. Keep it going!

    Wingard, 31d 8 tackles $375k

  2. TommyC99 says:

    Great write up as usual Kev!
    Which option pls community
    Wingard
    JJK
    Gray – only leaves 161k next week
    Gunston

  3. SC_Sixty6 says:

    Boy oh boy wowee this week was looking good….not so much anymore!

    How many are people fielding?

  4. iLoveNMFC says:

    Who to get community,
    Liam Ryan, Josh Battle or Charlie Ballard?
    JS? Scoring Potential? Bye Structure?

  5. Marty says:

    If LRyan plays like he did earlier in the year he will make some serious money. His high ceiling is the drawback

  6. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    OUT: Fritsch, ZGL, Murphy

    IN: Giro, Wingard, Curnow

    Doedee only rookie left who will be upgraded next week to Yeo/Mclean or Andrews if i'm feeling PODish

  7. Dale says:

    R.Gray , JJK, Hogan, Wingard
    please rate on avg to seasons end!
    gray plays sooon & wingard :/

  8. Gem says:

    Which rookies need to go first out of Doedee, L Murphy, Holman, Fritsch, Guelfi, T Cole, Brayshaw
    Which rookie to bring in out of Giro, L Ryan Cheers

  9. Sc_Wow says:

    Mclean done

  10. cashcows says:

    D.Fog + Murphy + T.Smith -> Giro + Ahern + Liam Ryan
    Gets me to 17 on field with 80k and 13 trades left.

    Next week Brayshaw + Higgins to mid premo and I'll be left with 1 upgrade left but probably fielding the same number in what should have been the only bye round that gave us trouble.

  11. Defying_Madness says:

    Please keep going Wingard. SAVE MY YEAR PLEASE

  12. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    quiet start vc macrae, nice 1st quarter from wingard keep it up.

  13. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    Im panicking and im off…. 😬
    The driver of the karma bus is a dead set psycho!!
    Doesn't relent, no reprieve.
    Got hit by it last week by saying:
    "Ive been lucky with players I have traded in its the rookies I trade out who go on to score a ton after i trade them"
    Karma bus knocked me off my feet brought in ridley and smith rd 11 to cover rd 14. Out rd 12. That and a heap of other non bye premos missing.
    So thought geez need coverage for the byes esp def brought in heron over michocek and Walters rd 12.
    Getting back to my feet not only does the karma bus knock me over again this rd it backs over the remaining corpse 5 times.
    Heron, phillips, murphy, walters, laird.
    FFS.
    What is the point of planning for byes and cover??
    So no trades this week no point.
    The guys i want to complete my team have the bye this week.
    So retiring into my cave until the byes are over.
    Good luck.

    • Russty_ says:

      Can be a cruel cunnova game mate…hence sometimes the philosophy, FK the Byes applies, depends on why you play I guess, but trades remaining is a big factor in finishing off the season.

    • Lekdog says:

      Here for you mate

    • The Ranger says:

      If its any consolation Trigga you still managed to beat me in two leagues last week!
      Fourteen payers and the vc on Macrae for me this week….so far it's going really well!!!!

    • Casper says:

      And having the Thursday night game means if you rage-traded at the start of the week (like I did) and then were filled with regret once the teams were named, you're screwed and can't reverse anything…… 🙁

  14. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Might have to consider trading Boak, really suffering with the plethora of mids now running through at port. Only player in my team suffering in form but I'm very low on trades.

  15. dontblushbaby says:

    The Bont going big, the 2 MCS are an issue though , Ollie a consider for a final Mid

  16. sc_damage says:

    Hung on to Ryan this whole time and he’s back to help me through the byes

  17. BrownlowBoy says:

    Macrae done

  18. Defying_Madness says:

    MACRAE DONE

  19. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Macrae might be done, AH FARRRRRRRRRRRRRKKKKKKKKKKKKKK

  20. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    SERENITY NOW!!!

  21. Marty says:

    Doggies are certainly not playing for Beveridge, themselves or their supporters

  22. Rick Grimes says:

    Rocky smashing it. He's Back!

  23. SC_Sixty6 says:

    I wish Macrae with a speedy recovery…..

  24. Crow94 says:

    I give up! F#ck you supercoach…. Macrae injured is the last straw…

  25. Corey says:

    Macrae not playing yet he’s gone up another three points here he’s just that good!

  26. Steeeve says:

    Gray nowhere near it in the third what's he doing?

  27. Marty says:

    Bont v Port atm

  28. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Tom Rockliff and Chad Wingard. You little beauties!!

  29. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Wingard looks majestic running through the midfield.

  30. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Everyone with Macrae including myself, if he has strained the string, could be out for 3-4 weeks.
    If this is the case, we all trading or holding?

  31. DavidSA says:

    The Hoff gets pts for fun when he gets going

  32. Rex says:

    The Rocky Train is Rocking!!!!!! Toot toot!!!!

  33. Finnius says:

    Incoming the first shocker of the round… Toby can you get to 50 please?

  34. Keenbutclueless says:

    Gotta say the Rocky debate was one of the most interesting and passionate and intriguing questions. Like many, the to and fro on this site pushed me back and forth. From an initial Rocky adopter, to accepting the argument that for those with too few trades, getting a legit premium was better. So I took Dusty. Who then promptly missed his first week in 4 Seasons. It was only ever going to be settled in hindsight, and it was a shame that the debate crossed the line and became personal a few times. Full kudos to those that went with him, and commiserations to those of us who missed the boat. Such is SC.

    • SC_Kev7 says:

      There’s no argument he’s an absolute jet, Keen. Only need to look at his years carrying Brisbane to see that. At Port, his scores are reliant on the whims of Ken. I can see it now, SC grand final and Ken plays him as a tagger. I just can’t trust him

    • The Ranger says:

      I think the only time that we'll be able to say if it was a good trade in or not is at the end of the season Keen.
      What looks like a good trade one week can look like a bad trade the next and vice versa.
      He looked good tho eh? Rating high on the arousal curve.

  35. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Ed curnow, Cripps, Fyfe or Titch for the C?

  36. Sc_Wow says:

    If only port could play the wounded dogs every week. GRAY looking good as usual, couple of other players taking advantage of the situation and scoring well tonight

  37. Corey says:

    Macrae update 43 to 46 to 49 turning into a good score (still more than McLean)🤬

  38. SC_Sixty6 says:

    Since Macrae has been off he has amassed 9 points…..maybe he took a shit?

  39. Rex says:

    To all the gentlemen that bagged Rocky (even though we made 50k from Kelly) is it time to say you might have got it wrong? Or should I not hold my breath? zzzzzzzzzzzzz

    • Keenbutclueless says:

      Didn’t bag him, but didn’t pick him. Yup I got it wrong

    • SC_Sixty6 says:

      A scar is a permanent marking that can't be removed……that is what rocky has done to alot of SCers. The scars never go away so neither do people's opinions on him.

    • Ricardo says:

      Averaging 80 for all Port games this year so I don't think I got that one wrong.

    • Lazza says:

      I can’t recall bagging the choice of Rocky, just offered some cautionary advice .. so far so good. And he didn’t exactly smash his BE, so will still be at an attractive price for those who missed the cheaper buy price and are willing to forego his injury history..
      Mind you, with so many premos going down this year Rocky could be as safe a bet as any… we nearly lost Bont last night too.. he was a bees donger from doing real damage to his knee… slighter hyper-extension.. hope he doesn’t come up sore.

    • Lazza says:

      One other thing to note before we all run off and beat ourselves up … Tim Kelly has continued to outscore Rocky since the trade.

  40. Holty01 says:

    Nice work to those who picked up Rocky and Wingard.

  41. BrownlowBoy says:

    Lekdog had the VC on Rocky!

  42. TheGreatBozza says:

    Well done to the Rocky owners. I was scared off by his game against the Hawks but he looks in good nick.

    The question is will he continue to dominate against better opponents?

  43. Noah says:

    Cripps or Curnow VC?

  44. TheGreatBozza says:

    My second point, can’t believe I wasted my VC on McLean. Got caught up doing AFL Fantasy I forgot I could’ve looped Fyfe on Saturday!! Anyway do we think Titch is the best C option?

  45. BrownlowBoy says:

    Hoff seems to cop it from the umps. A lot of soft frees against.

  46. Marty says:

    McCrae McLean ….another tough round awaits.

  47. Swans2012 says:

    The good and the bad for me after one game…. the good, vc'ed rocky and happy to take a 127, hopefully at some point they will let him play his natural game and he'll go bananas. Looks like he is running around trying not to offend his new team mates by getting too much footy

    the bad… bought in McLean this week instead of wingard….I tossed and turned on it and ended up locking in McLean as he was the missing "lock" in my forward line despite his high be…ahh well good luck to those of you who went with wingard, well played

    • TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

      Nice job on the VC swans.
      The good for me ?? Listen for the crickets. I guess having 50 shades and watching him play footy. <img draggable="false" class="emoji" alt="😁" src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.4/svg/1f601.svg"&gt;
      The bad? How long ya got? 💤🙄

      • Swans2012 says:

        I feel it trigg, tough couple of rounds, I won't lie I smashed an 1812 or something last week despite the carnage, but I'm not immune this week, needed one of Murphy/laird to play to get to 18 after 3 trades this week, so it looks like it'll be 17.

        And Robbie really is still under appreciated I think, he is a flat out jet…

  48. Keenbutclueless says:

    shame about McLean’s 52. But if you offered me 272 for Gray, McLean and Richards, I reckon I would have taken it.

  49. Sc_Wow says:

    Oh well onto better things!
    The World Cup is here!!!
    C’mon ENGLAND!!!!! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

    • SC_Sixty6 says:

      Sorry wow. It's out of 4 teams that I'm backing. Germany/France/Argentina/Belgium.

      • Rex says:

        Spain has a better team than Belguim. It's just that the Belguim players play in England so they get more exposure. They won't win

      • James says:

        Belgium have no back up plan and poor cohesion, I think they'll disappoint yet again
        France is still pretty raw but could do something

        It's between Brazil and Germany for mine, could see Uruguay making a sneaky push to the semis with Spain

    • AuroraBorealis?! says:

      I'll be supporting the socceroos until we get knocked out of groups, and then its up Belgium!

  50. WoW_Trevor says:

    There are some who claim to be experts after the fact and never stop telling us when they are first to report news from an alternative source here although, they often claim to be the source. Conversely there are those who are experts before the fact but never promote themselves even after it has been proven on multiple occaisions.
    Neil Demons Delight belongs in the latter category.
    In February this year Neil wrote a rookie article in which he stated that the best 3 rookie Defenders for 2018 would be Tom DoeDee, Ed Richards and Aaron Naughton. Think about it folks FEBRUARY and he nailed the best rookie defs.
    As it got closer to round 1 everybody jumped on Doedee Naughton but Richards was ignored by most.
    Like Doedee and Naughton Ed Richards will play every game if fit and his scoring will take a dramatic upswing due to a new mid/fwd role.
    Well done Neil it takes genuine knowledge and true guts to put it on the line in February and get it right.

    Neil also touted Fritsch and both Smiths along with TMac and Hogan.
    You are a genuine expert Neil well done mate.

  51. Swans2012 says:

    geese unlucky for some is rough trigger lol a real bad number. To think we thought the byes were under control a week and a half ago now this!

    • Shake_n_Bake_ says:

      I went Gunston Swan 100k cheaper than McLean. Dont have McLean so its time l had to look for a pod. Hawks have a great run in so hope 100 avg from here. McLean to probably drop 35k this week lets see if he can turn it around im sure he will.

      • The Ranger says:

        I'm playing you in the JR Faithful Shake, you can mark that one down as a W mate.

      • Swans2012 says:

        Good call shake, if he was a defender I'd be all over gunston but reckon McLean should average 105-110 from here, and promised myself I wouldn't tight arse myself out of the certainty top 5 players on each line like I do every year! Doesn't seem to be working for me though lol

  52. TommyC99 says:

    Pretty happy with my 3 port boys in Rocky, gray and Hoff. All cracking the 110+ barrier. Maclean disappointing but almost all of SuperCoach would have him anyway so not too bad.

  53. Lekdog says:

    If I see anymore petty arguing, I’m blocking you all.

    • AuroraBorealis?! says:

      Good to see you stepping in Lek. On a side-note, i was wondering if its possible to make it so only people with intensedebate accounts can post comments? This would greatly reduce trolling on the site.

    • Holty01 says:

      Like it Lek. Lets hope this all stops before anymore leave this great site

    • Rick Grimes says:

      Authoritative Lek is sexy. I like it….a lot.

    • neil demons delight says:

      trigs right take control have a look at how often regulars comment if at all NDD

    • smart as s says:

      Am sure if the two donuts make a fantasy website for themselves, it could quite work for them as they seem to be fantasy fanatics and are available 24 hrs a day for comments and provide their views which are sometimes inappropriate. Its not surprising they are good at this game as their commitment is unquestionable. Thats the least I could suggest for them as it saddens me that the jock reynolds community is dominated by a few individuals or by a single individual with multiple accounts, sc teams and virtual profiles and personalities.

    • Pitch72 says:

      Nice job mate, show some leadership and give these nuffies the ass.

    • SC_Sixty6 says:

      Perfect!!! No more stabs from members.

      I think anyone without an intense debate account that plays up needs to be blocked. No questions asked. Too many nuffies randomly popping up.

  54. TRIGGA_HAPPY says:

    👍👍👍👍👍👍

    Need to take CONTROL lek!!
    The regulars are sick of it with some already signing off and disappearing from this once great community.

  55. Trades says:

    Is this too crazy?
    Murphy to Sicily
    Guelfi to Billings
    Leaves me with 1k
    Would get me 18 on field

  56. Alferton says:

    Help please
    Who to bring in Charlie Curnow or JJK.
    Thank you.

  57. Damo says:

    Ed Curnow or Cripppa for VC?

  58. Jambo says:

    Shaking my head still at tonight’s injuries.
    Well, so what?! Such is life. Lost McLean and Macrae to injury? So what?!? It’s all apart of the game. The roll of the dice. When difficulty arises, will I see opportunity or will I see defeat? Opportunity, duh!!

  59. DEES NUTS R BIG says:

    This is a real football site, no comments about boring sawka folks!
    Enjoy Rocky getting a 70 odd next week, he is fools gold. He will have a few good scores but the dud games will equal an ordinary average overall.

  60. Down Doggies Down says:

    Anyone know Macrae's new price and new breakeven?
    Is he still worth getting in a couple of weeks, would be my final upgrade in the mids? (will finish D6 and F6 next week)

  61. TBone_9 says:

    Should I be trading out Guelfi or Spargo for an upgrade this week? For F6 should I trade in JJK or Gunston as a POD? Cheers guys 🙂

  62. Keenbutclueless says:

    Had Treloar pencilled in as my last mid to bring in next week. But Bont is looking tempting. No doubt will change back and forth multiple times next week.

  63. JohnDJ59 says:

    Out of the Bont and R.Gray, who would make the better trade in next week. Both would be finishing my mids and fwds. Once I did one of these trades it will be a while before I can get the other one in.

    • Lekdog says:

      Gray next week, gonna have a lot of mids to choose from including Kelly, Oliver and Treloar. If you wait another week you can grab any mid you want

      • JohnDJ59 says:

        Thanks Lekdog, that was my original plan, then I started thinking about my mids and the fact I've had the Bont on my watchlist all season, but like you said there are a lot of mids to choose from.

        • Defying_Madness says:

          Bont doesnt make top 10 so I wouldn't pick

          • JohnDJ59 says:

            Things can change though DM, I traded in Pendles round 7, when he was av 109 and in the top 10 mids, he hasn't scored over 100 since, so what they have done so far doesn't mean they will keep doing it.

  64. Rick Grimes says:

    Forgot to take the vc off Gray from last week. 121 is in that wishywashy zone. Take it or have a crack on Mitch, Fyfe or even Dustyballs?

  65. red5 says:

    I'd like to get Jake Lloyd or Jimmy Webster but can't quite afford them
    What do people think about Tom Stewart for a D6?
    Thinking Ed Phillips to Stefan Giro and Michael Hibberd to Tom Stewart

  66. Trades says:

    Coffield to Sicily
    Fritsch to Gunston
    Hawks have an amazing run home

  67. nick says:

    Community, thoughts on S Hurn from WC??

  68. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Thinking of going Fyfe as my VC this week for the reasons below;

    1- Should be stunned back into action after watching the kids win it for Freo last week.
    2- Sandi is back. Should receive plenty of taps from the big giant.
    3- Playing his 150th game for Freo. Surely he will be fired up for this one.
    4- Playing against Carlton who are not travelling too well at the moment.

    If he cannot do the business this week, there must be something seriously wrong with the bloke.

  69. Trades says:

    If you can bring in any defender this week, who would it be?

  70. Sc_Wow says:

    Luke Beveridge on Jack Macrea

    "He felt like he could probably still go but we had to sit him down. We didn't want to lose him for 6-8 (weeks) we may lose him for two or three as it is," he said

    I apologise if this doesn’t turn out to be true

    • neil demons delight says:

      if its three is it wise to run with him or trade him NDD

    • Doc says:

      Surely he's a trade? Bring in someone like Josh Kelly and you get an extra $100k and someone that will probably average a little bit more than Macrae until the end of the year?

      • Ja191 says:

        you'd be pretty mad to trade him out he's still the highest averaging player in the comp and reports have said it's minor only see him out for 1-2

        • Doc says:

          I understand that but I don't think he'll score 135+ for the rest of the year. I also think he'd only be good for a 105+ average from here on whereas Kelly I think could go 115+. That's 10 points a game more as well as banking approximately 100k

    • Lekdog says:

      What’s the bet they say he just needs a week and then we don’t see him for another three?

  71. Maverick_ says:

    Should I dump fritsch to JJK or hold my nerve and reassess .. I have 17 warm bodies onfield. But not sure about JJKs output just want to get my 18 players.
    Current forwards consist of gray heeney McLean westhoff ronke fritsch (Henry T.smith)

  72. Justin says:

    Do we think the addition of Shuey will help or hinder gaff? Trying to decide whether to trade in him or Curnow.

    • Sharknado says:

      I'm of the belief it'll hinder him, knowing Shuey will return has been the main reason in me not picking up gaff in recent weeks

    • Sc_Wow says:

      He has scored in a similar fashion pre shuey injury and post. Gaff is an outside player shuey more inside. I can't see if effecting him too much but who knows

    • Lekdog says:

      I don’t have him but Curnow seems to be performing despite who is and isn’t in the side, if you have questions over WCE I’d just back in Ed

  73. Gem says:

    195K – 15 Trades Just needing some advice of whether to trade or hold this week. I've got 18 at the moment. Still 3 trades for the week
    Have missed this week's boat for the Port players. Thanks for your advice.
    DEF: Laird, Simpson, Austin, Doedee, Yeo, T Cole (Shaw, L Murphy)
    MID: Rockliff, Danger, Fyfe, Dusty, Titch, Holman, Petracca, Brayshaw, (Spargo, E Phillips, Cogs)
    RUC: Gawn, NicNat (Olango)
    FWD: Heeney, Maclean, Sicily, Buddy, D Smith, Billings, (Guelfi, Fritsch)

  74. KSinny says:

    Spargo – Giro
    Murphy – Brander
    Fritsch – Buddy

    Leaves me with 246k, 10 Trades and 19 playing this week.

  75. Millie Mutt says:

    WCE’s are sure to go overboard on stopping Buddy from causing havoc like he did in round one. I have Buddy and Heeney but I’m VCing Heeney and Cing Titch. I was lucky last week Cing Josh Kelly hopefully my luck continues this week because I have only 18 players on field but only 11 premiums.

  76. TBone_9 says:

    For my third trade this week I’m tossing up between trading Nank to Nic Nat, Kreuz or McEvoy. McEvoy has a great run in, for finals and doesn’t come up against Gawn, Grundy or Nic Nat for the rest of the year. Just a thought

  77. Rabbits16 says:

    Will Higgins & L Murphy be named to play?

  78. Da_Boysh says:

    whats going on with Laird? i need him to get 18

  79. neil demons delight says:

    Maybe this site would do better with some positive opposition from TREV .The unpoliced crap has driven a lot away Lek has done well in all ways except ridding us of the rubbish trolls .and unnecessary arguments. Didn't happen on his site and a lot of people like me would support both settling with the better controlled site . It's up to Lek to improve the control as he did so well with the podcasts ,which are now really good and funny ,and the articles which are first class .Damo and Kev are something special and must reads .Come on mate you Patch and the crew can do it just like the podcasts NDD

  80. jjj says:

    De Goey or buddy? If De Goey gets mid time surely he is a lock to be top 6 avg forward. Is buddy still an injury risk?

    Need help, have to decide tonight. I assume consensus is that JJK is to big a risk for to small reward?

    • Ja191 says:

      That’s a big if but if he does is a very good pick. He’s great in the midfield but the coach plays him up forward as a weapon. See this with other elite midfielders including grey,danger,dusty eg good for getting wins but bad for supercoach

    • redherringfc says:

      Buddy. If De Goey gets mid time Buddy will come close to matching his scores anyway.

  81. Daniel says:

    Which set of trades should get me the most points from this round onwards, as I only have 16 playing this week?

    1.Spargo to Giro + Hibberd to Yeo
    2.Spargo to Battle + Hibberd to Hurn
    3.Philips to Giro + Hibberd to Yeo
    4.Philips to Battle + Hibberd to Hurn

  82. TheGreatBozza says:

    Will have 14 trades left and 19 playing after using my 2 this week. Which option is better:

    1. Phillips to Giro
    Murphy to Ryan (Sicily DPP)
    238k bank to target a FWD and DEF premo (last spots)

    2. Philips to Giro
    Murphy to JJK
    38k bank

    3. Phillips to Giro
    Ronke to Heeney / Franklin
    Compromises R14 with 16 at the moment

  83. neil demons delight says:

    Trev's site FANTASY SUPER COACH is back up .FSC is exactly what we need ,. As I said we can support both or one . Not necessarily entirely wow's fault here as he was baited a lot but enough's enough FSC will be troll free guaranteed let's hope JR gets the message see you on FSC NDD

  84. prizza says:

    Hey all seventeen warm bodies ( up to now ) giro is inviting but not sure about security, thinking about trading the pig or murray ? thoughts thx in advance.

  85. Josh says:

    Should I get rid of Brayshaw or Holman this week?
    I feel like Holman is more likely to leak cash but he offers me an extra man on field next week

    • Jack says:

      Brayshaw, because of the extra man next week you spoke of….Holman won't leak much, if any

    • redherringfc says:

      Agree with Jack. Brayshaw is good for a 60 week in, week out. But he’s as good as maxed out. Holman should go ok this week against the Saints.

      Even though the Saints will win and Billings will get 150.

  86. Borko says:

    Gaff vs Curnow … been on gaff all week but thinking of doing the switch. Curnow has a higher ceiling and gets more contested possessions and tackles (i.e. inside mid). Gaff just doesn't miss games, is in a good team and has been ultra consistent … but it just doesn't feel right! Am i on the right track?

  87. Sammy says:

    Should I trade Frisch or Walters to Gaff?

  88. Wingards says:

    Walters to buddy, last fwd gives 18?

  89. Gem says:

    Spargo – Giro
    L Murphy – Ahern, a week early

    Good trades?

  90. Holty01 says:

    Wtf. Been trying for 5min to put ryan on field and hasnt allowed me. Now lock out.

  91. BadgerHoney7 says:

    heeney is going to be a deadset GUN!

  92. HumanBob says:

    Alir Alir looks to have an excellent SC role

  93. Ahmad rubas says:

    thoughts on fritsch and coffield to simmo and giro? hopefully these 2 trades are winners after going spargo to liam ryan

  94. Steeeve says:

    Good news: got rid of petracca.
    Bad news: brought in JJK

  95. BrownlowBoy says:

    Lift Gaff

  96. pigjumpprusik says:

    Anyone considering Witherden @ 374k? Has upside and is cheap, good for a d6/d7. Any Brisbane supporters here who could comment

    • seen_burns says:

      I'll consider him after RD 14, just want to see another game from him, the only downside with him is that because he's only 19-20 years old once he starts having a bad game he goes into his shell and scores horribly.

  97. Marty says:

    How much is Buddy being looked after by the umps. Absolutely bs

  98. Nobby says:

    What a week to bring Hurn in….

  99. Murray says:

    Can I just ask a question about the bye rules. Even if I have 16 Players on the field includes 8 mids on the ground but I want to bring in Giro but he will be on the bench. Giros score won't be included in the 18 scores because he is not on the field, even if a reserve

  100. BadgerHoney7 says:

    buddy franklin is the most protected specie in the afl smh

    • Bells says:

      Sucko all WC fans. It's all downhill from here.
      Buddy gets every free he gives away called. Only half the ones on him ever are.

    • Randomcliche2 says:

      Nah mate, there are some Geelong players who get that award I reckon. Watched buddy cop plenty or rubbish unrewarded while giving away a fair few frees. Individual games can be a bit yeo-yeo…

  101. Willymack1234 says:

    Spuddy is an ultra flog

  102. BrownlowBoy says:

    Yeoooooooo

  103. Defying_Madness says:

    YEOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO you star

  104. DavidSA says:

    AFL plz stop ruining AFL

  105. Ja191 says:

    Vc on heeney was looking good til quarter time, c on titch or Fyfe?

    • Randomcliche2 says:

      Titch lower variance I'm guessing. Fyfe interestingly has a low predicted score, but I'm expecting a big performance post suspension, I just wouldn't bet on it. Go Titch.

  106. Urghh says:

    So mad not bringing in yeo

  107. Ahmad rubas says:

    Off topic question but was the Russia Saudi Arabia game on tv this morning or did people have to stream it?

    • Jack says:

      It was on TV. SBS show a few games free to air, usually 1 per night. 4am tonight Spain vs Portugal & Australia game 8pm tomorrow night.

  108. hedski says:

    Yeo was going to be my last upgrade next week.
    Think I'll be about $5k short since it looks like he has made his b/e tonight.
    Shit that's frustrating.

  109. Corey says:

    My Best Trade Of the Year so far sadly it’s in round 13 Murray to Yeo

  110. Marty says:

    Well four umpires doesn't work. It just means they make more decisions, which means more mistakes.

    • theRealPod says:

      The only good reason to have so many umpires on the field is if the AFL decides to initiate zones, maybe that's the plan !?!

  111. Rex says:

    It's so peaceful in here when JJK scores like a dud…..oops Lol

  112. Finnius says:

    I guess you get what you deserve when you bring in a KPP before they have played a game… thanks for your 2 points jarrod Brander – please just get a game next week.

    • Randomcliche2 says:

      25 points is not going to make it as 19th man…. I hope….now lets see if the other first gamer can outscore him…. #fingerscrossed

    • Holty01 says:

      Yeah tough week to bring in rookies mate. All that were on the bubble had the bye

      • Randomcliche2 says:

        Just scrambling to put together some cashola…and players bought in this bloke to give him 2 cracks at decent score…. Mr $105,400 only gets one week. I'm kinda hoping they turn into floating donuts post byes. Both are DPP… Bubbles are only relevant in terms of availability of being cheap now… most should be hitting full premo v soon.

  113. Marcus says:

    If you had to go one this week, would you go J Smith or Redman?

    • Russty_ says:

      Hard to choose Marcus, both looked really good, if I had to choose I'd go Smith cause the dpp is handy and he's a little bit more proven than Redman.

      • Marcus says:

        Thanks Russty!
        Very concerned i'm going to be short next week, so doing trade this week basically gives me 4 trades to cover donuts

  114. Daniel says:

    Nailed my trades this week, guelfi/hibberd out for yeo and wingard, hopefully giro can do the same tomorrow to make up for my 2 donuts onfield this week thanks to laird and walters

  115. George S says:

    Can I ask what you're thoughts are on Guelfi & E.Phillips to Simpson & Ballard? Wraps on Ballard are high, and they seem to be happy to play him, though so far scoring hasn't been the best- like his DPP too.

    • theRealPod says:

      Ballard had a tough debut assignment vs the Swans, they must have a high opinion of him to put that on him. I think he looks ok and will be much better for the experience.

    • Holty01 says:

      Honestly would be holding both unless u going for rank and u dont have 18. Both still have money to make and goofy has been scoring well of late

  116. Steeeve says:

    JJK looking set for my F7. Fritsch to Walters for 50k should finish my forward line in a few weeks.

    • HumanBob says:

      That's what I was planning steeve but after tonight I think that I should have kept Fritsch as F7 and ignored JJK, who limped off and may miss next week

  117. Randomcliche2 says:

    Laird 1% ownership down last week. 1.5% down this week.
    Dusty down 13% last week, up 1.5% this week.

    I would have thought Laird would have dropped a bit more last week, given he was a chance out this week as well.

    I'm confused. Dusty ownership up leading into bye….perhaps people think he's cheap and will bust it a new one….Just interesting that people won't sacrifice their team to avoid a bye….cleaver really.

  118. Stupid Coach says:

    I put the VC on Heeney which was looking good at half time but finished on 97. Who do I go with as Captain out of Cripps, Titch, Dusty or Danger. Leaning towards Titch to match my opponent.

  119. Grahame Lebroy says:

    So glad I didn't get Kennedy from West Coast in. Injury prone and too inconsistent over last 2 years.
    You would be patting yourself on the back like some were last week then copping a 48 the next. No thanks

  120. TheGreatBozza says:

    Who’s the better trade out for Giro? Phillips since he’s missing two weeks but he still has money to make

    Or ZGL, since he’s worth more and nearly maxed out

  121. red5 says:

    Trade out Phillips or Spargo to Giro?
    Phillips has a bit more money to make but not sure if he'll get to play.

    • theRealPod says:

      I had the same line of thought last night and decided to go Phillips to Giro. Phillips will probably play again but Spargo is starting to improve and has DPP advantage, just hope he continues to get games otherwise can be used as a non playing loop.

    • Ja191 says:

      I still feel like phillips has better js, I’d be trading out spargo

    • Marcus says:

      I went Phillips to Giro as it gives me another player in round 14 (presuming spargo doesnt get dropped)

  122. Pod says:

    Where's the muppets who said after rockys 40 he was a bad trad in option last month 98,100,40,100,127 and is injury prone. Then bragged about there JJK master stroke because JJK got 122 last week then 47 this week and 79 before his 122 and at the end of last nights game he hobbled off with a injury.

  123. Wingards says:

    Trade out Spargo to Giro,
    Or go Lobb to C Curnow, would put 18 on the park?

  124. SRC says:

    Any love for Ablett @ 513k?

    • Lekdog says:

      I love him as an option BUT is the risk worth it? Has missed a few matches already, Geelong won't be afraid to sit him for games and has the bye next week.

      I'd be willing to wait until after his bye to assess and risk the $30k he might jump this week

    • Jack says:

      The ultimate risk vs reward. It depends on your situation if the risk is worth it. If your playing for rank and you're rank is 200-2000 why not take the risk. Or if playing for league and your team is about the 4th-8th best team, go for it

    • Ja191 says:

      much prefer others at similar prices. He's so bloody good but the odds of him lasting the season aren't too flash. At 450k he would have been the risk

    • theRealPod says:

      I love GAJ and will consider after the Cats bye. As long as a decent M9 is available for cover, he might just be the ultimate POD at the pointy end of the season.

    • pigjumpprusik says:

      Only if you have good cover at M9, or have enough trades to trade him out. Gun, but highest injury risk of any prem mid

  125. Jim_bob321 says:

    anyone like Ed Curnow C?
    Likes freo and want a POD captain
    cheers

  126. Rick Grimes says:

    First I forget to take the vc off Gray. 122, kind of works out. But then I forget to take the C off Heeney. 98, not so good. Lesson, don't drink and supercoach.

  127. Defying_Madness says:

    I may have put the VC on Crippa instead of Fyfe…

  128. Holty01 says:

    Oops took the vc off Fyfe and put it on Cripps 5min before the bounce

  129. Mr_Pink_ says:

    There's some shades of Fitzroy '96 about this current Carlton team…

    • Jack says:

      Relax people. This was happening to Fitzroy 96 every single week. Carltons last game was against flag favourites Sydney and they were up at half time (lost by respectable 30 points)
      Fitzroys entire list had probably 2 players other teams would want (Chris Johnson & Matt Primus) Carltons would have Cripps, Kruezer, Murphy, Curnow x2, Weitering, Petrevski-Seton, Dow, McKay, O'Brien, Docherty etc who would walk into another club easily.

      • zerowins says:

        As a one of the best 18 clubs in the country you are grasping at straws if you think 30 points is a respectable loss

        • Randomcliche2 says:

          Each to their own strategy. People think too much about the present year. Carlton will be fine. GWS, even GCS had some very respectable 60 point losses. At least one of those teams is now competitive.

  130. Holty01 says:

    And to think i seriously thought Carlton had a chance today. It sux being a Carlton supporter. 😭

  131. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    What do carlton do from this point? Is it a case of waiting for their young players to mature or is a rebuild in order? They look seriously awful

    • Tibor says:

      Hard to find any positive but wait til Bolton'spress conference and he will explain why it's all sunshine and rainbows…

    • Jack says:

      They are in a real build. Bolton has already said this

      • AuroraBorealis?! says:

        Haven't they been in a rebuild for the past 8 years?

        • Ahmad rubas says:

          only past 3 years we have been in a rebuild the time under mick wasnt a rebuild even though we were horrible rebuild has only started since bolton took over

      • Tibor says:

        Jack they've got Kreuzer Cripps the Curnows Simpson and they had about five blokes get rising star nominations last year, this is not a rebuild it's a disaster

    • Randomcliche2 says:

      I think with Gibbs, Henderson, even Touhy going out generally for trades over the last 3 years, they are in very strong rebuild. Probably Doch being out is causing serious carnage as well. Need to show something soon though. I think what Silvagni did with the giants was smart and he's doing for CFC as well.

  132. Sc_Wow says:

    Lachie Neale you jet!

  133. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    C on Curnow, Fyfe tearing him a new one. If he hits 110 I'll be content. Fyfe is going to go big though, 160 is my prediction

  134. Keenbutclueless says:

    Changing circumstances push you in directions you don’t want to take sometimes. Simple plan – bring in Yeo thus week. Laird and Murphy out, so only 16. Change plans. Hibberd also our, but can’t afford Yeo, so Hurn and Simpson come in. The two combined won’t reach Yeo’s score. Frustrating game. At least I VC’d Fyfe!

  135. Ja191 says:

    any hopes of ross resting fyfe up in the last haha rip not putting the vc on him

  136. DavidSA says:

    Simpson what a qtr!

  137. Shake_n_Bake_ says:

    Cripps works so hard for his pts!!

  138. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Fyfe has come back to life!!! Kaboom!! Tasty VC after last week's Gawn C disaster.

  139. Alferton says:

    Question.
    I have VC on Fyfe want to take his score. Do I just put the C on any player who I have on the field from the bye teams?
    Thank you.

  140. redherringfc says:

    My apologies to everyone I told to trade out Brayshaw. It was only 80 odd, but I kept saying he always scores 60.

    When teams dropped I needed every player who was named and could still only get 17 this week.

    I guess I accidentally threw in a Red Herring on that one.

  141. Ben says:

    Do I just put the captain on any player with the bye on the field to get fyfes vc score

  142. Crow94 says:

    MaCrae out for 3-4 weeks. What are people doing that have him?
    Im trading, cant afford to have someone that expensive sitting for a month.

  143. Sc_Wow says:

    Webster down the tunnel into the rooms

  144. DavidSA says:

    Billings halfway to his season avg already

  145. DavidSA says:

    Man I feel bad for the Macrae + Webster owners!
    Things like this is why we needed 20 playing minimum but nearly all of us getting exposed in the byes from rested player carnage

  146. Defying_Madness says:

    In hindsight Ballard wasn't my smartest trade in

  147. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    another horrible score coming my way, webster, macrae, crappy c choice. Curse the byes ive had enough. Running out of trades i dont know what to do anymore

  148. DavidSA says:

    atleast webster is gonna beat witts…. your playing vs longer…

  154. Mccaptainface says:

    Need some help!!! Do I take grays 121 or risk it on titch? If titch goes big it will cost me if a league if I don’t captain him, I’ll also lose if I put titch captain and he scores under 90. Need help!!! Advice??

  155. Marty says:

    Saints are f**king useless.

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      An absolute joke. Even with Billings playing better, they just look all at sea. I am afraid Allen Richardson's job will be in jeopardy if we do not see an improved second half.

    • Crow94 says:

      Richardson is a d#ckhead! After all the crap with Billings, now he plays him in the guts…

  156. redherringfc says:

    are they only playing half a game this evening?

    Billings on 60 = one of his best scores for the season.

  157. dognino says:

    I’ve never had the opportunity to loophole during the byes, this week I have 19 on field with a full midfield including Brayshaw on the bench with an E . Can I get his score by putting Higgins on the bench and a non player on field? Only problem I see is I’ll still have 18 total on field , so I might miss out on both Higgins and Brayshaw scores if I try it.

    • Swans2012 says:

      Pretty sure it works as per normal….99%sure

    • redherringfc says:

      If Brayshaw is an emergency who is used (ie replacing a bye player) he’ll be counted.

      can you put a mid (higgins is dpp i think) forward or back swapping a bye dpp? Then you’ll have you’re best 18 out of everyone.

      • dognino says:

        No all of my mid/fwd swings have played already, Edit. and I have 6 in the forwards haha. It’s a shame cos I think Higgins will outscore JJK , but I can’t pass up an 80 odd from Brayshaw.

  158. TOPHAWK1 says:

    Rice is cooked. And the carnage continues…….

  159. gator59 says:

    Patch's players going down like nine pins… Mcrae, Webster and now Rice

  168. Ahmad rubas says:

    Does anyone know how many points the match winning goal get?

    • Richard says:

      I reckon he got 20-25 points for that goal

      • Shake_n_Bake_ says:

        But then they take it off other players scores. Billings was 111 went back down to 100 Holman 92 went down to 84. Thats why championship data is all wrong. Why did they go down??? Did nothing to be deducted.

        • pigjumpprusik says:

          3300 points allocated towards each game. Those extra points Gresh got need to come from somewhere. Champion data isn't wrong, just standardized so every game has equal value.

    Gunston in defence taking plenty of points away from Sicily. Perhaps we should be looking to bring in Gunston?

  172. Defying_Madness says:

    SICILY!!!

  173. KSinny says:

    Sicily's a Gun!!, a flog but still a Gun!!!

  174. Shake_n_Bake_ says:

    Needed a pod so got in Gunston this week for Guelfi. I liked the Hawks run home. Only 1 game.

  175. Crow94 says:

    Bloody French Diving Team!

  176. Ben says:

    What score is everyone looking at

  177. SC_Sixty6 says:

    One game to go how is everyone looking this week? Dodge the injuries?

    I'm looking at 1840ish which I'd say is on par.

  178. KSinny says:

    How's everyone going? I'm 1662 with Danger, Nank and Higgins.

  179. theRealPod says:

    Big Sauce Jacobs looked alright last night vs an ok opponent. Very cheap atm but can he continue to improve?

  180. SC_Sixty6 says:

    With the hawks having three tough games for the remainder of the season, Gunstan looks to be perfect pod selection. Shout out to Wow for picking this up last Sunday morning.

  181. sc tragic says:

    I'm sure Billings was that kid in THE OMEN. now grown up what a crock you are Billings & Richo too for playing you out of position.

  182. KSinny says:

    Need a big game from Danger today

  183. Sc_Wow says:

    I’ll be looking at 1600 cya rank

  184. BrownlowBoy says:

    Who we thinking will win today?

  185. OTW says:

    I’m 190 behind my opponent and the only difference is I have Dangerfield.
    I have VC on Fyfe.
    Danger unlikely to get 190, but if I put the C on him, how much does he need to get for me to win. Not good at maths.

  186. Sc_Wow says:

    Seems to be less posts this week, but definitely a lot more positive energy. Looks like Leks post did the job, keep it up community!

    • SC_Sixty6 says:

      Yeh it's really good to see Lek stepping in and stop all the 'dog shots' can finally give our two cents with less spamming from the trolls and haters.

      Good work community!

    • neil demons delight says:

      It is good to see less nonsense wow. With the resurrection of FANTASY SUPERCOACH by wow TREV. it can only make both sites better.Could well be a battle of the WOW's. . Both wow.s offer such quality advice. Looking forward to it Maybe that's why there are less posts. They have migrated to the original wow Cheers NDD

  187. DavidC says:

    A late change from the CATS. Now why doesn't that surprise me?

  188. JohnDJ59 says:

    If you could only chose one out of Yeo and Gray, who would you trade in to your team.

  189. Rabbits16 says:

    will Melbournes T. Smith be back, he is listed as 'test' under the injury list? WOuld like to get a few more price rises out of him otherwise he will go for Ahern

  190. KSinny says:

    Footy not on TV? VFL on instead

  191. Ja191 says:

    danger playing full forward hope that guy didnt c him

  192. Finnius says:

    thank god I traded Dusty.

  193. Sc_Wow says:

    If Danger doesn’t go big this week he’s gone, sick of him

  194. DavidSA says:

    Martin not the same at all this year compared to last

  195. Ahmad rubas says:

    Need dusty to score 95+ to win a match thought it was a certain win

  196. Connor says:

    Alright someone wanna explain how despite having 3 clangers and only 2 effective disposals Dusty is still on 11SC?? Had absolutely no impact as well

  197. Steeeve says:

    I had three unique "premos" this week versus only one for my opponent. JJK, Charlie Curnow and now Dusty. My opponent's one premo plus rookies is going to wipe the floor with me.
    Not sure whether to stick fat or just blow through my trades to bugger off the underperformers.

  198. Finnius says:

    Surely Danger will be fwd eligible next year

  199. pigjumpprusik says:

    Dusty should've just stayed in NZ for another week

  200. Sc_Wow says:

    Dusty got paid and doesn’t give a sh&t now. So glad I traded him to Neale

  201. Willymack1234 says:

    I’ll be upgrading dusty over kelly at this rate

  202. DavidSA says:

    Lol Jelwood 10 touches for 13pts in the 2nd

  203. Connor says:

    I will never understand why coaches insist on playing the best midfielders in the game in the forward line – Dangerfield is 10x better out of the midfield and will probably kicked just as many, if not more goals! Scott should take a look at how Ross Lyon plays Fyfe…

    • Defying_Madness says:

      probably because geelong are stacked on midfielders that can only play in the midfield and danger is one of the only ones who can play a different position well

    • BrownlowBoy says:

      Because he is making Rance accountable. Danger playing forward allows Hawkins the match up on the first gamer.
      Please watch the game and you'll understand.

      • Connor says:

        Not just in terms of today BB, and not just Dangerfield (Dusty in earlier rounds too) – but when they are down surely you put your best man on the ball?

        • BrownlowBoy says:

          I'm not sure. Both are brilliant one on one.
          Maybe they back their mids and just playing them both forward makes the forward line much more dangerous?

  204. JohnDJ59 says:

    Seeing a huge difference in the scores in my ten leagues, a range between 1400 to 1950. I will be getting just under the middle of that range with a 1650.

  205. Connor says:

    Correct me if I'm wrong but did Dusty just get 20 for that goal!?! Went from 66 to 85

  206. DavidSA says:

    1848/17 before final scaling

    How everyone else finish?

  207. JohnDJ59 says:

    1663 for me this weekend, just beating my 1661 from last weekend, won 4/10 compared to 7/10 last weekend. Are people just as consistent or are your scores a big difference from last weekends bye.

  208. Marty says:

    The toilet was blocked; I checked the pipes and found a few turds dropped by injured players McLean 52 McCrae and the biggest blockage and one that really hurt, Webster's 13 (damn only having 18 players). Rookies didn't help the flow with Austin 54, Ryan 45 and Giro 66 which meant that I needed a bigger plunger. Fortunately, Mitchell 136, Simpson 123, Yo Yo 144, Gray 121, Sicily 115 and the fabulous and should-have-been dual Brownlow medallist Fyfe is Life with his 154 flushed out the system totally to give a disappointing 1797. Now with trades running out and me away in Central Australia all week, I have some decisions to make tonight.

    How did we all go?

  209. Bells says:

    Why did Ablett's score stop at about half time? Game not televised here.
    Do I need to get rid of Dusty?
    1822 for the round and a couple of much needed league wins. Might make finals yet.

    • Hawks says:

      I would hang on to Dusty. He is capable of anything in the 2nd half of the season.

      Not sure regarding Ablett, didn't see the game either

  210. neil demons delight says:

    Congrats Shake got me again you are making a habit of it son .Also Jambak and the appropriately named Long Live Jock Have to settle for around 1816 Cheers NDD

  211. Marty says:

    Anyone keen on Rance? Three tons in a row makes me sit up and notice as well as being a cheap option . Should be around $468k.

    • pigjumpprusik says:

      I would rather Hurley at $460k, but Rance is an ok option

    • Hawks says:

      No, I am not interested in any key forwards or key defenders.

      Rance can play a great game and score poorly in SC, because he doesn't have to take possession to be effective.

      Relies heavily on intercept marks, but some teams will just avoid kicking to a contest that he is part of. Like Hawthorn did last night with Roughead on Talia, they just didn't go to that contest unless nothing else was available.

      • Marty says:

        Agree but his worst score this season is 74. Always has a great efficiency rate.

      • pigjumpprusik says:

        Disagree

        Players like Andrews, McDonald, Buddy, Hogan, Darling (pre injury) are all near the top of their positions. Can't put a blanket over all key position players and rule them out

    • Willymack1234 says:

      I wouldn't pick Rance just on flog factor alone

    • hedski says:

      Alex "Hernandez" Rance will not be coming near my team.

  212. AuroraBorealis?! says:

    What was par this week? Ended up with 1615 from 15 players which im happy with

  213. SC_Sixty6 says:

    League games shouldn't be played through the byes….not that I care for leagues but it's a bad representation of where your team is at.

    A bloke second in one of my leagues (I'm 1st) scored 1587….and he won. Haha. Meanwhile I score 1820 and lose to a 1900.

    Moral of this story is overall is the only way to go. Shows consistency and not pot luck with random fixture.

    • Facts says:

      Byes can also distinguish the smart planners and pro active thinkers my guy… I think there’s a little sour grape you’ve eaten because you lost… I don’t like the byes in case you’re wondering but just because you score higher than someone in a diff match up and you lose that can happen in any week

    • Lazza says:

      I have the third highest number of points in one of those public leagues and sitting 16th… go figure…
      my average possie is 6th across the other leagues, and I have a 1st and a 2nd where I’m 200 points shy of the highest point scorers.. luck of the draw…

    • pigjumpprusik says:

      Agree! Our draft league is no games during the byes, a lot better

    • JEL says:

      Don't think it's a feature of the byes.
      Happens other weeks also where you just luck out.

    • RobDog says:

      Agree 66, only time of the year that a 17th/18th placed team can and often does beat a top 4 team, it's annoying.

  214. TheBenchmark25 says:

    2033 just had enough players to field 18 playing on field
    Bought the Bont and yeo in this week

  215. Sc_Wow says:

    1935 projected this week bring it on

  216. Sharknado says:

    Gray or McDonald to go full premo? Cashed up so McDonald at a premium price isn't a concern- purely unsure about who will average more from here on and am wondering if TMac has "used up" his big scores already

  217. KSinny says:

    Ronke – Ahern
    Brayshaw/Higgins – J.Kelly/Treloar
    Nank – Grundy

    Leaves me with 23k, 7 trades and 21 playing this week. Also will have 1 more defender and fwd rookie to upgrade.

  218. Cpt says:

    2020 Pts (Thanks Fyfe)

    Combined 97 points not used in best 18 on-field (McLean – 52, Ryan – 45)

    New Rank 1151

  219. Marcus says:

    McDonald this week or wait a week and get Lloyd?
    For my last premo spot

  220. BlueBaggerJosh says:

    Macrae-Oliver
    Phillips-Joel Smith
    Doedee-Yeo

    team is complete. Webster (injury) and Boak (form) my only issues, dont ask me how many trades left though or you will trigger me.

  221. FearTheBeard says:

    Community. I really need some insight here.

    My plans are shot now. Was going for Macrae & Walters as my final to upgrades. Now Macraes gone I've got 150k more to spend in the forwards final spot. Cash is no longer any issue.

    Please help me complete my spots here :

    Current midfield is : Danger, Fyfe, Titch, Oliver, Cripps, Martin, Coniglio :

    Forward is : Buddy, Heeney, Gray, McLean, Smith :

    NOTE : I have Sicily & McDonald in the D.

    I'm looking at Kelly (concerned if his groin is right?) Bont (concerned now Macrae is gone does he get more attention/pro could get more ball?) Curnow (concerned with him & Cripps)

    Do I go for Neale? Trealor perhaps? Selwood?

    Forwards wise I'm looking at Westhoff? Menegola? Hogan or Walters?

    I am thinking Westhoff or Walters just as they seem more consistent?

    HELP ME PLEASEEEEEE LOL. Thought I had it all mapped out till Macrae went down 😐

    • redherringfc says:

      I wouldn’t go past Kelly as your mid.

      As for your forwards, I’m in a similar position. Hogan and Walters don’t seem reliable enough for me. I’m leaning towards Westhoff, but I might find the extra $$ to get McDonald instead.

      • FearTheBeard says:

        Thanks for taking the time to reply.

        I am right now trading in Trealor & Westhoff though only for the moment (already reversed Kelly in a moment ago LOL)

        As you can see doing my head in! I am not able to split them between Trealor & Kelly. What makes you think that? I know he went huge last game though issue is Cogs was out and he could still be carrying some groin concerns or is that all past him? I'm not a huge Trealor fan personally though he is scoring rather well and consistently. Pies going alright too…

        My logic was look at the upcoming draw to which it appears Pies have a slightly softer draw for Trealor? Ditto for Westhoff.

        The logic in Westhoff seems to be more for reliability & stability (touch wood). The McDonald option would be done though he is locked in my d with Sicily. I looked up there and theres no one I would get besides Lloyd or Webster (injury concern now). I would rather get Westhoff in instead of Lloyd I think (defense has McDonald, Laird, Sicily, Simpson, Yeo)

    • Defying_Madness says:

      Treloar and Menegola for me.
      Keep the extra cash for a rainy day when you have an injury

    • Randomcliche2 says:

      Fwd. Menegola over Walters over all other KPFs.
      Mid. Kelly, over the butcher, with JPK and Wines being other serious options. Wines playing for contract, yeah Dusty I know it can make you do good things uh?

      • FearTheBeard says:

        Menegola over Westhoff?

        Kelly I am starting to lean towards again. Not going near Wines or JPK both burnt me before.

        • Wingards says:

          Can’t Swing Sicily fwd, get best defender there is left, plus treloar/Neale,

        • randomcliche2 says:

          Hopefully Kelly will be fine, but consider he may have a reduced fitness base because of the injury, I wouldn't expect last year's output, a little short of that is still very good.

          Yes, I reckon you're chasing points/hoping for another 140+ score to get his average up. Menegola has risks with the addition of Gaz to the mids this year, but I reckon he'll be more consistent.

          • FearTheBeard says:

            I think the same with Kelly. Just concerned how fit he is? Plus with Cogs in the lineup he hasn't pulled the 140+ score yet.

            I don't have any Pies mids and despite Trealor having the butcher issue he still has been consistent this year?

            Liking Westhoff over Menegola I think. I am toying with Lloyd in the d and shifting Siciliy or McDonald into the F's as I have both in D.

            Thoughts?

    • Sc_Wow says:

      Your efforts are worse than a childs Give up loser

  222. Connor says:

    Scored 1661 this week from 15 players. Very salty that injuries and omissions have forced me to have 15 both weeks so far – all my planning (and my season) down the drain

  223. Willymack1234 says:

    To give Dusty the boot or not?

  224. Defying_Madness says:

    Need Ridley, Heron or Smith to play this week to field 18. What are my chances?

  225. Bells says:

    FMDSC ! Lost 70k on McCrae, and ruined my triple swoop on Fyfe, McDonald and Ward.
    I'm not trusting a hammy injury on McCrae – surely 3 weeks. They may as well tank from here and get the draft pick.

  226. Ahmad rubas says:

    Who should I bring in to finish off my defence? I'm looking at two options McDonald or yeo?

  227. DavidSA says:

    950 pts is the gap between rank 1 and 200 already!
    831 pts between 1 and 100

    Such has been the bye rounds… coaches who have been able to field 18-20 first 2 of the 3 byes are steam rolling ahead

    • Sc_Wow says:

      Number 1 has it in the bag

      • DavidSA says:

        i reckon only 3 guys are in the race
        Guy who is 1st now has a huge edge though

      • TOPHAWK1 says:

        No way Wow!

        Far too early too call despite his 400 point lead.

        What if he is down to half a dozen trades and cops a few untimely injuries in the next 10 weeks? That 400 point lead will evaporate like water in the Sahara Desert within a week or two.

        Just my take mate.

      • Marty says:

        Next week i think he only has 16 players

      • SC_Sixty6 says:

        Mate you don't know sh!t about supercoach 4-years and never had an end of season rank above 25,000. You pre-bye heros are poison to serious supercoaches stop giving advice to people you troll

      • JockReynolds says:

        What would you know paedo? Your best ever end of season rank was 25,370 something, you're pitiful at this game

    • Marcus says:

      If you look at Number 1's team he has 15 playing this week pre trades (and that includes Brodie and T. Smith)
      So fair chance he drifts back to the pack this week

    • TOPHAWK1 says:

      Spot on David. The gun players are climbing rank because of smart planning, trading, and a bit of luck with injuries. The issue with some of these top leaders such as the current number 1 ranked coach "Throbbing Hotspurs", is that despite their current success, they may have "burnt the candle at both ends" trade wise to get into this mid season position. What if Robert only has 4 trades left? I can already see that he will not be fielding a full side next week. He will be using a few more trades to cover this week. Long long way to go. Nobody has this gig in the bag until the fat lady sings.

      • DavidSA says:

        yeah good point. Need 6 trades left absolutely minimum after byes

        • Sc_Wow says:

          Says who? Winner a few years back ran out of them pretty early I think it’s these rules that hold most back

          • DavidSA says:

            Says people who need them but run out Wow…..
            You don't think coaches who have been in the race for 16, 17 maybe 18 rounds are left burnt and out of the race with no trades?

            • Sc_Wow says:

              But it’s been proven you don’t need 6 as an absolute minimum?
              Just giving hope to those who have less

              • DavidSA says:

                Wow I'm understanding what you are saying. Understand I'm not setting a rule. It's setting a safety net. If I were in the top 3 right now I would feel inclined to trade every time a premium gets a 2+ week injury. Or use 1-2 trades as correctives to increase potential scoring output

                If you have 5 or less trades after byes and are in the hunt for the grand prize need huge amounts of luck from that point onwards

          • Help me says:

            I agree wow, im pretty sure the people right at the top are all being aggressive and taking it on… I don't seem to remember hearing of anyone using there last couple of trades to get the win

            • DavidSA says:

              missing the point Help me
              It's rather that you don't hear about the ones who are out of trades with 4 or 5 rounds to go

            • Sc_Wow says:

              Yep you’ve got it mate. Maybe for leagues but I don’t play for that. If you’re full premo with decent cover 4-5 trades is fine. If it’s not then you’d have been unlucky enough to not win it anyways

              • Jacob says:

                How is your ranking wow? Ive been a bit inactive last few weeks, are you still up there mate?

              • MrGoodCoach says:

                You have made a lot of beginner mistakes already wow and burned trades like you have 2 every week. with your current team and I reckon maybe 8 trades left at the most you're a non-relevant competitor from this point forward.
                You are NOT a person to be offering advice on supercoach. what's this your 4th year? and your highest ever rank at the end of a season is 22,000+

        • Randomcliche2 says:

          No way David, 6 is a luxury in my case. I'm already full premo plus JJ on the bench. Next week I'll be full premo plus JJ and Petracca on bench. I will have 2 trades left after that. I am comfortable running many weeks late in season with the trade criteria being season ending injury. I will run Petracca or JJ in place of injuries and loop them in when not.

          Team post next weeks trade (*'d):
          Laird* Lloyd, Yeo, Simpson, Howe, Savage (JJ, FD)
          Titch, Fyfe, Oliver, Cripps, Cogs, Zerrett, Rocky, Danger (FD, FD, Petracca)
          Gawn, Nic Nat (Donut that doesn't float)
          Gray, Heeney, Menegola, Walters, Sicily, Smith (FD, FD)

          There are many ways to structure a team, use trades and creating hard rules leaves you exposed to alternative strategies. I wish everyone obeyed your rules. 😛

          • DavidSA says:

            hmm will be full premo with Mundy as swing with 6 trades left.
            I will corrective Shaw leaves me with 5.

            Way the season is going I wish you well

            • SC_Sixty6 says:

              Some fresh smart input you can digest Dave!

              • DavidSA says:

                What is your problem now?

                Originally this trades left is in regards to the players who can win the grand prize. Wether or not the coaches in the race have had 1,2,3,4 injuries and 1 or 2 correctives to add to it. I would back a player who has 6 trades left 200pts behind the person with 4 left and leads the pack after byes.

                Comes down to how you got to where you are with how many trades used

                • SC_Sixty6 says:

                  ??? Never any problem Dave!

                  Randomcliche has just brought up some valid points that you can digest. A few smart posts that I agree with.

                  I still love you Davey boy! Even after Lol the names you called me 😀 water under the bridge. 😘

                  • DavidSA says:

                    Mate after reading a few pages of your intense debate profile it's easy to see that you have no idea at all about this game. You are a beginner makinging beginner mistakes and the bluff/bully others into making the same beginner mistakes.
                    This year will be the first year ever that the JockReynolds site is swamped with coaches saying that they've had there best year ever due to advice in the comments.
                    Instead they'll be going to mSCpaige or similar and complaining that advice in the JockReynolds comments gave them their worst year ever.

            • Randomcliche2 says:

              Thanks for the well wishes…. I'm chasing someone with about 500 points head start on me…. we've got about 7/8 differences in our premos, not sure it's even going to be close.

      • neil demons delight says:

        That's true TOPPA but 2 years back the winner ran out very early and even last year he was way down. Depends on your team DPPs M9 F7 and D7 are crucial. With these in place and with points in the can anything can happen. NDD

  228. Martin Mase says:

    To get Gunston in to complete my forwards I need to trade Doedee and select either Smith, but worried about his injury history and JS or Redman, who is cheaper and who may get only a couple of more games.
    Neil or any other Dee supporters, what do you think?

    • Randomcliche2 says:

      You should be getting close to full premo and not looking to play rookies anymore. Therefore selection and $ post bye rounds shouldn't be that important, more important is DPP status to flick better players around to cover outs. Just remember what you are trying to achieve post byes… not a melb supporter so I won't comment on JS between the two.

    • neil demons delight says:

      Gedday martin I rate both Smiths and both are in my team. Tim will come back as Pederson will go and Tim is fully fit. Don't worry about the other smith variety they love him .Frost will be selected depending on match ups but not at Joel's expense. and if you are searching for that elusive rookie that you must have early check out QUINTON NARKLE a bold call but I said the same about OLIVER and that is the kid's going be a star later .Should get a gig shortly cheers NDD

      • Jacob says:

        Narkle looks good neil, but really going to struggle to get into the cats teams with all the returning players. Jones is ahead of him and cant get a game. Would be surprised if narkle plays this season. Could be a good pick next season!

        • neil demons delight says:

          T.his kid reminds me of Barry Cable he is selfless a great kick and hunts the ball ,never gives up. will debut early maybe this week Big call I know but it's been years since I seen a lad with his potential could end up better than all the recruits this year NDD

      • Martin Mace says:

        Thanks Neil and others

  229. DavidSA says:

    Question to the community

    Do you think with the bye rounds and how clubs approach them lately we should have:
    1) best 16 instead of 18 moving forward?
    2) keep best 18 and increase trades to 4 instead of 3 for the byes?
    3) leave it

    • Doc says:

      3 trades is good enough I reckon but best 16 would be better as it gives more room for more competitive scores across leagues given injuries and omissions.

    • Help me says:

      Leave it… I don't even mind the idea of keeping best 22, that way it kind of nullifys them a little

    • Randomcliche2 says:

      I like it as is. Gives two clear strategies at the beginning of the season. 1) overall, try and maximise scores across the 3 rounds; 2) look at your opponents across those byes and structure your trades accordingly. Players get rested and suspended. It's part of the gift of the SC gods. Last year I caught a bolt of lighting from SC god by the name of Jarred Harbrow. FMD killed my entire strategy, but thems the breaks.

      People who want to do both strategies are going to suffer a bit under these rules, but I'd argue your strategy is already compromised trying to do both as they are very different objectives.

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      Best 16, getting 18 on the field is way to hard, either that or they increase the total trades to 33.

  230. Randomcliche2 says:

    What is the most amount of money lost in a round? $73.6k has gotta be up there…. (His BE is up there too but shy of Zerritt's theoretical rnd 2 this year)

  231. WoW_Trevor says:

    Gotcha. Thanks for the followable trail you goose expect a visit from a uniformed officer this week

  232. Jacob says:

    Scored over 2000 this week, couldnt believe it! What do people think was a par score?

  233. Maverick_ says:

    Rocky is still 400k had 100 and 120.
    looks to have a nice job role.
    two key factors to get him pre byes were his $$$ and bye coverage…
    now only one of them points is relveant do we keep looking elsewhere or he worth a go…

    • SC_Sixty6 says:

      I'm waiting for him to break down with some form of injury plus he isn't a top 8 mid so no point.

      If he avgs 100 from here on in good on the guys that rolled the dice but I can assure you my 8 mids are 105+ avg

    • Sc_Wow says:

      Are you still here troll? GO away nobody likes you

    • Randomcliche2 says:

      Yep, still gets a 50/105 point head start on rnd 14 bye players. Rocky is a definite consideration, I rate enough to get 110 from here out but he comes with higher variance than JPK, Oliver, Wines and perhaps Kelly.

  234. What_Bear says:

    Hi community,

    Time to move on the Nank. I can afford Grundy, but will take all my cash, so Martin, Nic Nait and Kreuzer look like my best options. Wondering if the community could rate them for me.
    Is Grundy worth possibly missing out on my last upgrade?

    Thanks In advance

    • Jacob says:

      Get grundy mate, you wont regret it!

    • Marcus says:

      Comes down to what combo you think will average more
      Grundy (125 av) + your current player
      Or Martin/krus/nicnat (100-105 av) + your last upgrade

    • TBone_9 says:

      Hey Bear, currently tossing up over the same thing. For me it’s if I get Grundy I may only have 10-20k to upgrade Fritsch with, while if I get Stef I will have 90-100k to upgrade to any forward with. Comes down to which pair you think will average more. Spare coin in the kitty could become really handy too if let’s say Dusty needs an upgrade in the next few weeks. I say grab Stef mate, the extra coin could be very precious

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      I'd go with Martin, then you can get Buddy or Gray as well.

    • Shake_n_Bake says:

      go Goldy, has not gone under 100 in his last 4 games. doesnt play Port or Melb in run home. has the bulldogs twice. Saints last game & is avg 113 last 3 games.

  235. TBone_9 says:

    Hey lads, not a great score of 1675 this week, but with only 16 players playing I’ll take it. Doedee, Henry and Nank to Hurley, Ahern and Stef Martin locked in. Next week A. Brayshaw to Cripps and Fritsch to Buddy/Gray. Then will have 9 trades left and am at full premo. How’s everyone else doing in terms of premos on field and trades? 🙂

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      That's bloody good TBone, having 9 trades left is a bonus, last year I had 6 left after getting to so called full premo at round 16 and I did alright. This year not so great, still have 4 rookies on field and only 6 trades left after burning through the trades like paper and fire due to too many corrective/injury trades. In hindsight had a better starting team last year, so could afford to be more patient with my trading. Scored a 1663 this weekend after a 1661 last weekend, it's just way too hard to get 18 on the park.

      • TBone_9 says:

        Cheers DJ, trades are so precious and injuries this year have just been ridiculous. Consistent scoring over the last two weeks though at least! How many are you looking to get on the park this week mate? So bloody tough, if I’m lucky I’ll have 17 playing

        • JohnDJ59 says:

          Hey TBone you're right about trades being precious, I'm usually better at conserving them, but this year they seem to have just slipped through my fingers. Only looking at 14 on the park this week, if all my rookies get a gig and Cogs gets up, I might do one upgrade and one downgrade to finish my backline, so that would get me to 16,but then that will be it, will have to be content with one rookie in the mids, Holman/Banfield and two in the fwds, Fritsch/Guelfi, holding down the fort.

    • Sc_Wow says:

      That was worse than a begginers score TBone you should hook up with Jess and quit supercoach because you are both terrible

    • Randomcliche2 says:

      Mate, disregard the abuse.

      Full premo + 1 + $130k + 3 trades. Fritch upgrade next week. Then sit back and watch.

      • TBone_9 says:

        All good mate, doesn’t bother me.

        Nice Cliche, perfect time to upgrade Fritsch I’m thinking. Who you looking to upgrade him to?

        • Randomcliche2 says:

          The baby faced assassin joins this week. LairdyMcLairdface, the bringer of much pain across the opening rounds for non-owners, comes in next after his 3 week holiday 🙂 as I took a gamble against him with my opening team. Overall the gamble did no pay off.

  236. Jess says:

    How will I go this week?
    *Targeted team for this round

    Yeo, simpson, siciliy, hurn, hurley, mihohek

    Mitchell, oliver, treloar, cripps, zorko, coniglio, merrett, rocky

    Gawn, Grundy

    Mcdonald, Gray, Mclean, Westhoff, j cameron, Fritch

    Good chance to win weekly?

  237. Sc_Wow says:

    Hey Lek looks like the trolls are back again. It’s good that no one is responding because I think what they are doing is pathetic. I had a quick look at Neil’s friends website last night and it looks like a similar thing is happening over there but in a more serious way. People’s emails are apparently getting accessed, and just because we’ve had a few disagreements in the past 66 and I are getting the blame. Now I know you guys can check where the posts are coming from and could 100% confirm that this is not us. I think anyone pretending to be someone else should have their IP address banned, or for the people trying to access emails something more serious. Enough is enough

  238. Dordi says:

    who do i trade as my last upgrade?
    bont, oliver, kelly or cripps

  239. neil demons delight says:

    quite right John and The Tim variety also .His 26 was injury related keep him.He is value to the dees as a back up ruck .Will play as early as this week Cheers NDD

  240. FearTheBeard says:

    Thoughts on this one guys.

    Purely as cover.

    Would you take Redman if it allowed you to keep Philips over Barry for cover?

    OR

    Would you got for Joel Smith and lose Phillips and keep Barry (will also have Austin for cover in D and Ahern & Giro in mids)

    ????????

  241. SCDemon says:

    Gday Community,

    Laird, Sicily, McDonald, Yeo, Simpson, Hurley
    (Smith, Mihochek)

    Fyfe, Mitchell, Cripps, Dusty, Danger, Coniglio, Merrett, Oliver
    (Ahern, Higgins, Coffield)

    Gawn, Nicnat (English)

    McLean, Gray, Walters, Heeney, Hogan, Menegola
    (Fritsch, Keeffe)

    This will be my final team next week and will only leave me 4 trades and $0.

    My 3 questions :

    Is it worth burning 1 more trade & straight swapping english to Cox – is he better coverage, will English come back? Would have to do this week due to funds.

    Wait for Macrae instead of Danger? Or anyone else for roughly the same price?

    Worth saving a trade & keeping Doedee on field? (Traded for hurley this week to field 18)

    Cheers
    SCD

    • Sharknado says:

      Unsure about English situation, sorry can't help you there.
      Macrae will be out for a month and then take another 1-2 weeks to fall in price nicely, I'd get a premo mid in now (would look at Kelly- I back GWS to finish very strong and he'll be a big part of that for mine) and leave Macrae as a a bonus/injury cover option come finals time. Danger also has his bye this week while Kelly doesn't, that's an extra 100 or so points from Kelly already.
      I'd get Hurley in and try hit full premo right now, you could wait 3 weeks and get Webster uber cheap but I'd go Hurley then reconsider for Webster if/when the inevitable injury to screw everything up happens .

      • SCDemon says:

        Cheers shark,

        Yeah i reckon I'll stick with Hurley.
        Have already done my 3 trades this week bringing in mihochek, ahern & hurley
        (Pending teams)
        Next week will bring in smith & last mid upgrade, leaving me with 4 trades after that.
        Kind of dark on Kelly as i started him and had to use 1 trade on him already!

        • Sharknado says:

          Hahaha very fair then to not be keen on Kelly, I ended up not trading him at the start and got screwed over for those 6 rounds but am hoping I get some compensation from him to end the season. 4 trades should be enough to close out the season too with a bit of luck, looks a solid team

  242. Crow94 says:

    Hey Guys, advice on my team would be fantastic!

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

    Mitchell, Fyfe, Dangerfield, Kelly, Crouch, Merrett, Holman (Ahern, Phillips, Giro)

    Gawn, Nankervis (Cameron)

    Heeney, McLean, Westhoff, Boak, Fritsch, JJK (Smith, Keefe)

    8 trades and 294k

    • FearTheBeard says:

      My two cents is I'd look to upgrade Holman asap.

    • DavidSA says:

      I'm sure 66 will help you. He stays sc related all the time, he highly rates having 2 trades left with 6 donut rooks on bench after the byes.
      You have too many trades left in a season that has poor options If none at all for def/mid swing ruck/fwd swing. Lots of soft tissue injuries this year and a weak MRP too. Not to mention Premo's will get rested rounds 21 & 22.

      • Crow94 says:

        Why do you have to bring this crap? If anything you are just as bad as the trolls atm.
        I asked for advice on my team not whining about other people…..
        And i dont have too many trades if anything I dont have enough….

        • Sc_Wow says:

          Team looks good crow, rate your crisp pick highly well done there.
          Just look for an upgrade for Holman but you could wait a week if you need and choose anyone

          • Crow94 says:

            Thanks Wow
            Yeah looking at upgrading him next week
            Just hope i dont get too many injuries over coming weeks after having to trade MaCrae to Kelly this week

          • SkinnyMcThin says:

            I remember you and 66 from SCPaige a couple of years ago. You did exactly the same thing there that you're doing here impersonating other members at the start to turn people against them and bragging about how great your rank was every week until the byes. Then you both finished outside the top 30,000 and disappeared back down your troll-hole.
            You're a joke

          • Sc_Wow says:

            Neil I’ve read all that stuff on the other site. Looks like someone is pretending to be Trev too. All this pretending to be each other stuff is pathetic. And it’s ridiculous that I’m copping the blame. I’m no computer hacker. And I would never do something like that

          • Randomcliche2 says:

            Nah a continuation of from last night looks legit

        • Jones says:

          Think that was Daves point about trades left and 66 brushing it aside. Shame that he brought you into it to prove a point. Getting tired of sifting through this site for the real supercoach talk.

      • Randomcliche2 says:

        Mate I was being serious about having 2 trades left next round. I'm not saying its perfect but its a real option. I'm not playing leagues only rank. Very different strategies. Do us fav and don't bait please.

    • Sharknado says:

      I'd go Holman to Oliver, and then potentially Phillips to Joel Smith to get cash up to try go Nank to Grundy. Would consider going McGovern to Webster in a few weeks too once his price drops and also make a profit!

      • Crow94 says:

        Yeah im considering trading Holman after the byes. I may have to hold Nank the way this year is going with injuries etc. Gov i wont trade because i like him as a POD and he hasnt scored that bad all year. But if he goes crap then i agree trading to Webster in a few weeks would work.

        • Sharknado says:

          Yep very valid points, agreed on Nank and not a bad call on having McGovern as a pod either. Crisp move is very good too to echo Wow. Do you think you'll hold Fritsch? I'm not sure whether I want to use a trade to upgrade him or not

        • Lazza says:

          Holman to Oliver is good advice, but if cash is a problem, consider Ward.

    • redherringfc says:

      You’re only 2 away from full premium. you can probably get there this week by trading out Fritsch, Holman and the rookie with next highest price. Bringing in Mihocek or Battle (although he has a bye) or Joel Smith, although his extra $$ might mean you can’t get there.

      Holman to Oliver, as Sharknado says, is a good trade. You could go Fritsch to McDonald if you can make the money otherwise Fritsch to Hurley via Sicily.

      If you can’t get there this week you could wait a week for Dusty instead of Oliver.

      This gives you 3 guys who have had their byes. I know Holman and Fritsh might have money to be made, but I think it’s worth trading them early if it’s gets you to full premium earlier.

      After that you have 5 trades. I’d use 1 to make some dollars when the time is right and then either sit tight or go for broke and upgrade the players who aren’t quite cutting it.

    • JohnDJ59 says:

      You only have seven named in the mids, who is your other player?

    • Holty01 says:

      Hi Crow.
      Team looks solid. Would be looking to move Holman on after the byes and complete your midfield. Fritsch you could potentially hold for longer as he is still scoring well. If you are interested in league finals, upgrade him just b4 the finals. Nank is a tough one however. Although he will score ok, you will be losing a lot of points there in the rucks. So i would personally move on Holman and Nank 1st and upgrade them. That will leave you with either 5 or 6 trades left. Then id try and hold until finals unless major injuries happen.

    • Randomcliche2 says:

      Oliver, Hurley , Walters would be full premo plus one. With dpp swing across def mid fwd. I think you should trade nank to kruz this week. Try work that over 3 weeks.

  243. Sc_Wow says:

    Well it looks like people are going at great lengths to pretend to be me. I’m sure Lek can see the IP addresses and they’ll be gone soon. FYI it is not me sending all of those rude comments

    • Narcissist says:

      The admin of the fantasy supercoach site seems pretty sure you tried to use Russtys avatar and email. Sounds like you’ve been caught out.

      • Sc_Wow says:

        And like it said on that site mate it wasn’t me. I’m usually the first one to get the blame for everything. The people that can see the IP adressss will confirm this. There is no way I’d ever do something like that. Someone’s doing it to me too, but again apparently I’m the number one suspect. It’s a joke I’ve been all for people getting account so this is limited. People like you need to have a look at yourself

            • Narcissist says:

              From the outside getting an account seems to be the worst thing you can do. It’s those that have accounts that are having their identity and emails used.
              The JR admins and Fantasy Supercoach admins should share info to find out what is going on. Something very dodgy and very concerning that “someone” has access to user accounts email addresses and is using them to impersonate.

              • Sc_Wow says:

                Yeah I 100% agree narcissistic. I’ve changed my own email address to an old account as I don’t want mine being accessed. It is also disappointing that I get accused for crap like that though. I’m sure if they work together it will be clear I’ve got nothing to do with any kind of hacking

              • neil demons delight says:

  244. The Ranger says:

    Need some advice this week. 10 trades and 50K.
    Team is currently…

    Laird, Yeo, Simpson, Lloyd, Sicily, Witherden – Ridley, Duman
    Fyfe, Danger, Titch, Macrae, Oliver, Crouch, Cogs, Taranto – Coffield, Phillips, Ahearn
    Gawn, NicNat – Olango
    Heeney, Maclean, Westhoff, Walters, D.Smith, Wingard – T.Smith, Keefe

    Tempted by Macrae, Coffield, Phillips OUT – Dusty, R.Gray, J.Smith IN which then gives me Taranto and Wingard to play with at M8/9/F7.
    Or do I just go Macrae – Kelly and hold fire on other trades?

    • redherringfc says:

      Obviously trade out Macrae. I’d go Kelly this week.

      I’d then look at Taranto. He hasn’t scored over 100 for a long time, has a 3 round ave of low 70s. There’s no need to try and swing/loophole a player who doesn’t have a decent ceiling. I’d trade him, put Westhoff to mids this week and bring in McDonald. Or swing Sicily forward for Hurley.

      Maybe bring in a cheap rookie to get money for next week

      Next week trade out a forward rookie (or back by using Keefe) put the Hoff up front again and bring in the best mid you want/can afford.

  245. Sc_Wow says:

    What are Macrea owners doing? If trading, who to?

  246. Jones says:

    Kelly or Curnow

  247. Dice_real says:

    Who will score more points from now till season's end?
    Savage or Wingard

    • Jace says:

      I have both, but i think if wingard can stay in the midfield which is big if and i hope he doe's.
      He will out score savage from here on.

  248. Andy says:

    Who should i bring in as last DEF upgrade?
    Have – Yeo, Laird, Simpson, Savage and Sicily

  249. Jim_bob321 says:

    Worth trading Savage to Andrews…?

  250. FearTheBeard says:

    Lloyd or Westhoff?

    • Holty01 says:

      Id go Lloyd. I still dont like Westhoff but he continues to prove me wrong.

      • FearTheBeard says:

        Thanks mate. I haven't seen much of Lloyd. It's going to take some moving round with depth to make it happen. Worth it? I see he had a huge 170+ game. Take that out is he really worth it over Westhoff who is a simple trade for a scrub not playing 😐

        • Holty01 says:

          Who is currently ur D6 and M6? That might help you make the decision.
          Otherwise look at must haves on each line. If you are missing any, id get them first. These are only my opinions and im sure some will disagree but here they are
          Defense id say
          Laird
          YEO
          Simpson
          Sicily

          Forwards
          Heeney
          Gray
          Mclean
          McDonald
          Franklin

          • FearTheBeard says:

            Hey Holty.

            My current d is McDonald, Yeo, Laird, Sicily, Simpson, Savage

            Forwards is Heeney, Franklin, Gray, McLean, D Smith….

            I can go for Lloyd by cutting a player off the bench who will actually play and be handy cover (Austin) or I can get rid off someone like Garlett who won't play and is no cover and get Westhoff….

        • Ja191 says:

          luckily traded in lloyd the week he scored 170, Rate him very highly. Watching his games with sydney's play style of kicking it around the back he goes loose man and is elite with his kicking. Wouldn't be suprised if he averaged 105-110 from here on out.

  251. Steve says:

    For my final midfielder who do i bring in?

    I have 611K

    midfield consists of Danger, Cripps, Fyfe, Mitchell, Treloar, Oliver and Merret.

    Anyone know if Devon Smith is likely to play this week. He went off late in his last game and ic d his groin/quad area. Not listed as injured. Anyone got the inside word?

    Alright trolls you win. I’m done this place is a joke

    Sick of the trolls and the plain stupidity of some people. Have fun, and maybe one day you can realise how unwelcoming you’ve all been

      Mate just ignore them. You've stuck around this long might as well stay. Pretty sure the admins will block him soon enough as well. If others can't see he's obviously a troll by not having an account then it's their fault for believing it.

    Gosh, this place has gone feral. Miss the vibe we had last year. Not blaming the new gang, their efforts have been outstanding. But the community spirit has gone, sadly.

      Dead right Grimey, this site must stay afloat by how many hits or comments are made, otherwise these deadbeats would have been banned long ago. No one wants advice, even if its good, from a smartass..
