Jock Reynolds Fantasy Footy Podcast – pre round 4

Published by Jock on

Supercoach podcast round 4

Dangerfield looks as if he’ll be a juicy trade in target in a week or two. So does Roughhead. Maybe your Matty Pavliches or your Duffields. This is the thought process of the Fantasy Footy elite at this stage of the season folks.

You see its not necessarily your starting team that defines you as a fantasy footballer. Its how you ply your trade when it comes to mid season trading. Will you get caught up in a sideways trading frenzy? Or will you sit back and start to strategically map out your path to a team full of premium players?

Hope your team did well on the weekend folks! Would love to hear your stories from the weekend’s fantasy footy and also your plans for round 4.

Enjoy the show.

What are your thoughts on Luke Hodge Jock? Considering the following:

Pav > Leuy (Cox forward)
Whitfield > Hodge

No doubt he has potential, but the knee is a worry. Looked excellent today.

    Dashmasha · 15/04/2013 at 00:48

    He had corrective surgery on it, he was eased back into the team, and he says he feels fit. After he was best on ground against the Pies, he said he feels great. I must jump on Hodge, he will produce every week. In my opinion. He will make premium

Matt · 14/04/2013 at 23:07

Had kreuzer, varcoe, O'Meara, crouch, zorko and pittard all on my field. Just can't catch a break at the start of the season

    Josh · 15/04/2013 at 12:37

    Kreuzer and Vacoe destroyed me this week. Lost 3 games because of those two injuries. All you can do is move on, you should have enough cash trading both of them to get Westoff (cant believe i just said that, where has his form come from, hasnt scored below 100 and is still only 400k) and Luenberger, whos averaging 97 off 2 games so hasnt changed from 300K.

      Josh · 15/04/2013 at 12:39

      If you cant afford both, Sam Rowe is a good grab at 115k averaging 71 off 2 games.

        Matt · 15/04/2013 at 21:49

        yeh don't trust westhoff at maintaining it but I am going with leuy. considering rowe

    jockreynolds · 18/04/2013 at 13:35

    Hang in there Matty- the supercoach gods are a fickle mob and your luck will turn mate

tension · 14/04/2013 at 23:11

Really need some of my premiums to start playing like they are premiums. It is hurting my score: Not to name (Pav) names…

No choice but to keep the faith though, picked for a reason, now have to stick with him. The only way is up surely.

    pdid · 15/04/2013 at 11:41

    why you would even consider Pav in the first place @ 593k is beyond me

Dish · 14/04/2013 at 23:29

i had Kreuzer, O'merea instead of Viney, Dixon and L.Brown so to end up with 1990 was expected yet bloody painful!
Ok any word on how long Dixon (GCS) might out for?
Just Traded Kreuzer for Lemb so i hope the ruck curse stops…

Marc · 14/04/2013 at 23:30

Good stuff guys, good to know about the 3 week averages, makes planning upgrades a bit easier as you know after a premium has a stinker it opens the door for a few weeks for his price to go down a bit (or at least stay static) and to upgrade to him. Top stuff.

Looks like the Captain loophole worked perfectly for me this week with putting the VC on Cox and banking the 171.

Tex may have managed to give himself 1 more week, but he needs to cut out the cute stuff, stop playing for frees and play with that mongrel style that makes him great. BE is 145, so he's got 1 more price drop coming up for him.

Also thinking of making Mundy my first upgrade. Good first round, but scores in the 80's and 90's aren't doing much good. Will keep his price static, but I picked him on the prospect of scoring 100+. The bad scores from Selwood and Watson this week are awesome for me as that'll bring their prices down a fair bit in a few weeks.

    jockreynolds · 18/04/2013 at 13:36

    Warmed my heart to see the Watson score in particular mate – I've got him earmarked as an early midfield upgrade target and can't wait to stuff him in

Jake · 14/04/2013 at 23:52

gday jock ripping podcast, just wondering about nathan bock and where he is at for the 2013 supercoach season?

Jakekuyper · 14/04/2013 at 23:55

No mention on westhoff??!! That man has dominated the forward line for 3 weeks!! Zorko the shit stick is out for westhoff!! Crouch has it right about zorks… BURNMAN

    EvansZ23 · 15/04/2013 at 10:11

    i agree jakekuyper he has the highest average

bob · 14/04/2013 at 23:57

hi everyone,
2425 this week so very happy but only concern is zac smith. charlie dixon seems to be taking alot of points off him, so thinking of downgrading him to a rowe or sinclair but would leave cox and 3 rookies in the rucks. or upgrade him to a prem such as mcevoy but would only leave me with 99,000 or swap him with leunenberger.

also is justin westhoff (500K) worth trading in, negative breakeven, projected to reach 600k in a couple of weeks but has played relatively week teams (gws, mel) and could score less in upcoming weeks with north, richmond, carl, geel to come

Fabian · 14/04/2013 at 23:57

Love ya work guys.

Stray thought regarding hutchins the GC rookie defender.

Surprisingly the defenders have been pretty reliable, with most popular premiums and mid prices averaging well and the rookies looking to keep going up in price.

I'm thinking of swinging goodes into my midfield and trading out super sub kane Mitchell, freeing up a spot in my defense for hutchins.

Happy with my defenders and mids ( although would like a bit more from Mundy), not so much fwd line. Injury to Varcoe means one trade burnt. Zorko unimpressive but I want to give him one more chance.Looking to trade in sinclair, lecras and hutchins with only two trades. Time for some planning

Tom · 15/04/2013 at 00:04

do i keep rich and shuey? and dangerfield has dropped so much… and zorko and varcoe… help?

    Tom · 15/04/2013 at 00:15

    i have the money to trade danger to a premium. just dont want to see him lose me to much more$$$

      Terry · 15/04/2013 at 11:48

      Don't worry about Danger, you picked him at the start of the season for a reason. He will come good, don't worry about his value.
      Zorko looks injured, and i'd get him out. JJK/Bartel look good bets.
      Shuey couldn't get a good score v Melb, so he doesn't look to be a keeper.
      Rich can't deal with a tag, so looks like he should go too.

      Your priorities should be Varcoe to a rookie (Sinclair/Rowe)
      Then Shuey to a JPK or even a watson.
      Rich shouldn't hemorrhage as much cash as Shuey.

      Hope this helps

        Tom · 15/04/2013 at 14:12

        thanks terry helped heaps

    Sean · 15/04/2013 at 09:08

    I’m in the exact same sitution with almost all of those players!! Biggest bullshit start to the season!! At this stage, varcoe is a straight out. I can kill two birds with one stone here as the money I get from varcoe to a rookie can give me enough to go shuey to JPK or Watson or pretty much anyone. As for danger, watch hodge over the next week, if he produces what he did on the weekend, downgrade danger to Hodge and you’ll get enough cash to upgrade zorko if needed.

      Tom · 15/04/2013 at 18:10

      yep true sean

    EvansZ23 · 15/04/2013 at 10:27

    I've gone from Danger to JPK and Zorko to the other kennedy in the forward line

      Tom · 15/04/2013 at 11:16

      yeah varcoe is gone for sinclair then swing him with rowe into the forward line. not sure about my second trade. I think danger has to stay otherwis i have lost a lot of money however another significant price drop to come this week. atleast rich showed some promise and zorko is perhaps a lower priority. which leavs me with shuey who cant even crack the ton against melbourne….. has to go!!

clayton · 15/04/2013 at 00:06

Suban > Hutchins
Varcoe > Franklin.
What do you think jocky? Was hoping suban to continue his round 1 form after it looked like he was going to play mainly in the midfield but I got sucked in and it didnt pay off!

    Jonno · 15/04/2013 at 17:35

    sounds good

footyinme · 15/04/2013 at 00:15

I traded in Liberatore what happened to him? onl 42 sc points.
what the???

    Smittzzy · 15/04/2013 at 13:58

    He's 20 years old, your dreaming if you think he could of held 100+ output the whole year

Nick · 15/04/2013 at 00:15

I have 2 major injuries Paton and kruzer and two players who I thought was going to play every game in Aaron siposs and Patrick karnises I have Rowe to back kruzer but I have Maccfa and Dwyer on the bench and since Maccfa didn’t play I got a donut I was thinking of puting Rowe in for kruzer and trading Paton for lecras and siposs for a bargan but I am unsure what player. Help please

    Jack · 15/04/2013 at 07:50

    Use sentences

Dashmasha · 15/04/2013 at 00:44

Should I dump K.Mitchell (the SUB every week for Port) for Luke Hodge before he goes up in price next week?

I need to off load Roughead and Pavshit, should I trade down Pavlich for LeCras before HIS price rises? or Roughead to Luenberger before HIS price rises…

I'm a novice, but going very well. Scored 2355 last round.

    THE SALTSHAKERS · 15/04/2013 at 11:42

    yes mitchell back on rookie list for salter

throttlefinger · 15/04/2013 at 00:56

Need fwd and def help. Have $185,900 in reserves

Wright, S for Gibbs
Jetta for Kennedy (even though I have Varcoe)

Good or shitte?

    throttlefinger · 15/04/2013 at 01:30

    Disregard. Took your podcast advice. Traded Varcoe for Sinclair. Wright for Gibbs. More money in the bucket. Thanks Jocko!

Dashmasha · 15/04/2013 at 01:52

IN REGARDS to Pavlich, another point to consider. Fremantle play Hawthorn. Ryan Shoenmakers has trouble with big gorilla forwards, Pav might find some form against him. But if the Hawks bring in Brian Lake, which I think they might, then Pav will more than likely be shut down completely, because the best spoiler in the game, Josh Gibson will branch of his man and superman-punch the crapola out of the incoming ball into Fremantle's forward 50. I reckon Pav will have another stinker, if the Hawks bring in Brian Lake and the way the Hawks defense work together to kill the ball coming in. Pavshit traded to Mark Lecras from the clan Lecras for me (who is on the bubble), maybe… hmmm

    pdid · 15/04/2013 at 11:52

    Schoenmakers has only had a problem with Cloke so far this season. Pav is in career worst form, I think Guerra could shut him down on the weekend, lol.

      Smittzzy · 15/04/2013 at 14:00

      Yeah Shoenmakers destoryed Tom Hawkins.

Tim · 15/04/2013 at 02:34

Nice work again with Podcast fellas! Would love a bit of advice here.

DEF: Goddard, Hanley, Gibbs – Goodes, Stevenson, Pittard (Brown, Terlich)

MID: Pendles, Kennedy, Mitchell, Deledio, Swallow – Wines, Stevens, Viney (O'meara , Crouch)

Ruck: Bellchambers, Leuenberger (Rowe, Blicavs)

FWD: Cox, Bartel, Rockliff, Mayne, Kennedy, Neade (Karnezis, Macaffer)

$169,000 in the bank and sitting in the top 700 overall.

I sat on Karnezis last round as he wasn't named (no price change) and made more important trades, so he's at the top of my list this week. My first thought was to trade Bellchambers to Sinclair to make a heap of cash, swing Cox into the ruck and upgrade Karni to a premium Fwd. That would leave me around $250 – $300k, but if Ryder is suspended for a few weeks is it better to hold on Bellchambers with less chance of dodgy scores?

I'm liking the first option at the moment but would love to hear any ideas. Cheers!

    @LMcleanWatson · 15/04/2013 at 02:43

    You're up pretty late, watching Chelsea or something?

    I'd sit on Belch until Ryder is back, unless David Hille is named. Otherwise I'd definitely consider using your option.

      Tim · 15/04/2013 at 14:41

      Nah, no soccer in my world. I stick to the real stuff 😉

      The more I think about it, Bellchambers has to go. Better off suring up the rucks and he's up against McEvoy this week. Could barely break even and I reckon he'll only hit big against the lesser teams. Thanks for the feedback mate

        jel · 15/04/2013 at 19:12

        What about Bell out, Cox to ruck, and bring in Lance?

        Then Karny for Sinclair?

          Cam · 15/04/2013 at 21:53

          Definitely considered that and still am. Would leave me with $188,000 which is a bit short of what I would like but without any other worries it may be worth it!

      Tim · 15/04/2013 at 16:07

      As a dons supporter, I'd have no doubt that Hille will play if Ryder is out.

Jamie · 15/04/2013 at 05:38

do i trade shuey?

    jockreynolds · 18/04/2013 at 13:38

    Great question Jamie. A very awkward one. On the one hand I feel its likely that he will find form over the next month or so. On the other he can be used as a very handy stepping stone up to a Watson or a Danger or a Pendles… I'm keeping him for now but must say im tempted to show him the door

Dan · 15/04/2013 at 05:57

should i trade zorko and bring in martin?

    jockreynolds · 18/04/2013 at 13:38

    I'm a bit of an old purist Dan – I say you stick with the bloke now. However.. Dusty does look a good prospect at his price so can see both sides

Gillie · 15/04/2013 at 08:03

I'm thinking trade Zorko down to Rowe then Vlauistuin to Hanley for Brisbane?! Thoughts??

    Terry · 15/04/2013 at 11:36

    good trade

      Gillie · 15/04/2013 at 17:26


    jake7 · 15/04/2013 at 11:38

    Yes, rowe and Hanley will be increasing in price over next few rounds. i dont think vlastuin can break into the strong tigers line up yet, and zorko the magnificent is not being so magnificent

Mitch · 15/04/2013 at 08:07

Liberatore omg I traded him in

    EvansZ23 · 15/04/2013 at 10:34


Dish · 15/04/2013 at 09:02

Yet Another Awesome Podcast gents!
Had another listen this morning, more Biff-o than a VFL round!

Libba…. i would hold onto him, first quite game this year, was tagged up in a big way. He will come back against the crows this week.

    Dashmasha · 15/04/2013 at 15:42

    Don't know, it takes time to learn how to play well with a tag. I think Libba will be shut down more often and with Boyd coming back in soon….. I glad I didn't get in Libba

Rob · 15/04/2013 at 09:29

guys and girls, what's our opinions on westhoff, walker and martin as trade in options for zorko? walker's defensive role has him seeing a lot more of the ball and looks great too. We all know about martin but is this the yr he finally becomes elite and westhoff the obvious surprise here so far, can he hold this level of play?
Like many of you I'm not waiting on zorko, too pricey to gamble on, so what do we think is the best option going forward? (Pun intended)

    Terry · 15/04/2013 at 11:34

    I agree: GET ZORKO OUT.
    who do you go?
    Let's look at options vs their opponents.
    Westhoff: 100 v Melb, 163 v GWS, 150 v Adelaide. ALL wins.
    Walker: 137 v Rich, 70 v Pies, 137 v Geelong. ALL losses.
    Dusty: 85 v Carl, 92 v StK, 150 v Dogs. ALL wins.

    I feel while Westhoff has been the surprise packet, his form has been great, but weaker defenses. Shulz obviously gets Defender 1. What's his form going to be against the better sides of the comp?

    Walker is getting a more defensive role, a bit of mid time, and has played better teams. He has potential. But isn't proven. Not to mention DPP eligible.

    Oh Dusty… he is a gun. Explosive potential, but big fade-out risk. When he is on, he is on. While his scores have been mediocre before this week, when he plays 4 quarters, he dominates. Building his tank, 4 pre-seasons behind him and should have fewer low-output games. DPP eligible. The safest bet IMO out of the 3.

    Dusty> Westhoff > Walker IMO.

    but I could be wrong 🙂

    Hope this helps.

Ben · 15/04/2013 at 10:05

Hey guys
I'm thinking of trading out Dangerfield and I'll pick him up later for cheaper
Is it worth bringing goddard into the midfield and bringing in Hanley in the backline


    Terry · 15/04/2013 at 11:15

    You should back your premuims in mate.
    We do have more trades this year, but its a race to prem out your team!
    I would definitely bring Hanley in, but try to make cash from midpricers or rookies… Look at Danger's next few games… He's sure to pick back up.

Tina · 15/04/2013 at 10:18

Shuey out Teen Wolf Fyfe in
Zorko out Martin in

What do you think

I hate sideways trades, but this is something that I have to do?

    SCaddict · 15/04/2013 at 12:48

    There are certainly worse sideways trades than that. It would probably be better if you traded one up and one down, if you can, or both down to generate cash in waiting for premium upgrades in the next 2-3 weeks.

    However TW and Dusty look to be players in form so don't blame you for wanting them in your side.

EvansZ23 · 15/04/2013 at 10:19

Can i get some advice on my team
Gibbs, Goddard, Gibbs, Hartlett, Duffield, Stevenson BENCH Pittard, Vlastuin.

Pendlebury, JPK, GAJ, Watson, Wines, Viney, O'meara, Crouch BENCH Kommer, Stevens.

Jacobs, Blicavs BENCH Witts, Currie.

Westhoff, Kennedy, Rockliff, Lewis, Dwyer, Neade, Rowe, Macaffer

    EvansZ23 · 15/04/2013 at 10:30

    with 648,300 in the bank

      EPR · 15/04/2013 at 10:35

      Gibbs, Goddard, Gibbs?

        EvansZ23 · 15/04/2013 at 11:47

        i mean gibbs , goddard, goodes

          EPR · 15/04/2013 at 11:53

          Good one mate

      Terry · 15/04/2013 at 11:02

      648,000 in the bank is way too much cash to hold… that could be in your team gaining money, or more importantly points!!
      I'd consider upping your rucks, you could go a witts/currie to Benny Mac, or Cox.
      Maybe a Vlastuin to Hanley..
      Macaffer to Bartel..
      But to get my point across, you're robbing yourself of points matey.

        EvansZ23 · 15/04/2013 at 11:46

        cheers in post-round three i did the trades
        dangerfield- JPK
        Zorko- Kennedy
        i dont have enough trades!
        and next week i will probably trade vlasuin for hanley and blicavs to leue in ruck

          EvansZ23 · 15/04/2013 at 11:49

          no i meant currie for luey

    Sam · 15/04/2013 at 11:50

    Beast team for that much cash in the bank, maybe go Witts for Luenberger and then upgrade Macaffer to Martin?

EPR · 15/04/2013 at 10:23

I need to get out Zac Smith and I've got a heap of cash from previous downgrades. Do i go to Leuenburger or go straight to a premium?

If so, who is the best premium ruck option?

    Terry · 15/04/2013 at 11:09

    I like Cox (no dog dog), or Big Ben – He is tearing it up!
    If you dont have the cash, go luey – he looks good for the price

    Dish · 15/04/2013 at 11:14

    Leuen is in good form and will make plenty of money, Best Prem ruck atm is Ivan Maric (IMHO) scores of 112,106,120 lost 9k only due to lose 1k next time.
    Or Cox, he is just on fire more FF than ruck though.

James · 15/04/2013 at 10:48

Hey Jock,

How does a Varcoe to Sam Mayes and Roughead to Leuenberger trade sound? I will have $315,000 left over.

Or do I do they same trade but get Ivan Maric instead of Leuenberger?


    Rob · 15/04/2013 at 11:18

    get leuy and save money for midfield upgrades

    Marc · 15/04/2013 at 19:35

    Agree with Rob, Leuy will make enough $ (provided he stays healthy) to where you could cheaply upgrade him again should you wish. Having the extra $300K means you've already banked a rookie upgrade in 4-5 weeks time, or a midprice upgrade now if you're impatient.

      James · 15/04/2013 at 19:54

      Yeah I think I'll go with that. Good advice.

      Thanks guys.

Michael · 15/04/2013 at 11:21

Varcoe for J Kennedy west coast anyone's thoughts on that? Bearing in mind I do have Shuey LeCras and cox is it safe to have 4 from the same team!

    Marc · 15/04/2013 at 19:37

    I have 3 WC and 4 Port guys, it's fine I reckon. It's looking like at most 2-3 of them will be premium keepers, so it's all about scores and cash generation. If they provide you with either or both of those things then it's not a problem for me.

Beardzilla · 15/04/2013 at 11:34

Been my best year of SC so far.

Have only one under-performer that I'm pretty keen to do a straight up sideways trade for… P. Duffield, not the worst, but could be so much better…

Who (in your opinion) would be the safest trade option H. Hartlett, D. Heppel or J. Geary?

Or should I trade down for someone like C. Heath?

(My current DEF: P. Hanley. B. Goddard, B. Gibbs, B. Goodes, J. Pittard, P. Duffield, L. Stevenson, D. Terlich)


    chandanrajdb · 15/04/2013 at 11:44

    If you really want to trade out P Duffield…would probably be going to G Birchall…..safest of safest option i think…..

    Terry · 15/04/2013 at 11:57

    Birchall. But i would'nt sideways trade mate… Always trade up or down.
    I'd keep Duffield, but if you are dead set on trading i'd go to Hutchins (Maximum cash gen)
    Then go to Birch in a few when the cows fatten 🙂

chandanrajdb · 15/04/2013 at 11:37

Hello Community,

Very poor round for me this week scored only 2118 SC points……L Brown (ADL) and T Varcoe let me down big time….was ranked 3342 before 3rd round and now jumped down to 8703…..really disappointed……

Made couple of trades last week…

Trade 1 was Karnezis to J Neade
Trade 2 was J Russell to L Brown….(was tossing up between L Brown & H Campbell)….eventually went for L Brown……which I think was terrible mistake……should have gone for H Campbell….anyways mistakes happen…..

Have got $483,000 in the bank currently…..


This week I need to do couple of trades, see options below,


OUT: Varcoe IN Leuenberger (by swapping Roughie to FWD)
OUT: Macaffer IN C Sinclair

Will be left with $456,000 after the above trades…..


OUT: Roughead IN: leuenberger
OUT: Zorko IN: C Sinclair
Will be left with $1,065,000…….


OUT: Zorko IN: Westhoff (or any other premium FWD's Need suggestions)
OUT: Varcoe IN: Leuenberger (by swinging Roughie to FWD)
Will be left with $$428,100…..


OUT: Roughead IN: Leuenberger
OUT: Varcoe IN: Westhoff (or any other premium FWD's Need suggestions)
Will be left with $446,300….


OUT: Roughead IN: Leuenberger
OUT: Varcoe IN: Buddy
Will be left with $357,900….

Community, I need help very badly……please help……
Any Comments or suggestions, would be highly appreciated……


    Terry · 15/04/2013 at 12:08

    Hi Raj.

    Priorities from the above ..
    1 – Varcoe
    2 – Zorko (i never really rated him as a top 10 fwd option)
    3 – Orange Roughie (not in top 10 either)
    4 – Macaffer
    Dangerfield should stay.

    I'm a firm believer in NO sideways trades (unless LTI), and no more than 50k in the kitty. You want the cash in the team gaining money and points.

    Zorko – Sinclair/Rowe
    Varcoe – Buddy/Bartel/Cox

    If you have enough, go both to Premiums – seeing you have the cash.

      chandanrajdb · 15/04/2013 at 12:32

      Hi Terry,

      Thanks for your reply above mate….

      Zorko to Sinclair ?… i have already got Rowe in my team….how about Leuenberger?

      I dont have Leuenberger in my team….need to bring him in by some means….

      At the moment i have gone with Option 3 as per my above comment…..which is
      OUT: Zorko IN Leuenberger….
      OUT: Varcoe IN Westhoff….what do you think…..or do i need go for Buddy….as i have already got Bartel and Cox……if i go for Buddy i will be left with $360,000…

      Thanks mate….

        @OnlyOn4Footy · 15/04/2013 at 14:21

        I'm still unconvinced on Westhoff. He has monstered the weaker defenses of GWS and an under-par adelaide… He didnt do that great v Melb.

        Buddy's BE is in the 90's so he may rise in price, but his scoring is pretty erratic. Still a good option though.
        Leuy is a good bet . he will AVG 95-105 this year i think.

        I still think you need to pour your cash back into your team. 360k is way too much to be sitting in the coffers.


          chandanrajdb · 15/04/2013 at 16:20

          Hi Guys,

          Terry, much appreciated for your comment above mate, but still not sure, see below for my team structure and couple of options….

          I am shattered with my 3rd round score…..very disappointed really…..and I need help very badly….PLEASE HELP…..

          Please see below my current team,

          DEF: Goddard, Gibbs, Heppell – Goodes, Stevenson, Pittard (Brown, Terlich)

          MID: Pendles, Gazza, Dangerfield, Fyfe, Moloney – Wines, O’Meara, Viney (Matt Jones (MEL), Kommer)

          Ruck: Cox, Roughead (Rowe, Blicavs)

          FWD: Bartel, Rockliff, Zorko, Josh J Kennedy, Dwyer, Neade (Varcoe, Macaffer)

          $483,900 in the bank and currently ranked 8703 overall

          I am thinking of making couple of trades this week and please see below for the options……

          OPTION – 1: Will be left with $339,700 in the bank
          OUT: Zorko IN: Leuenberger (By swinging Roughie to FWD)
          OUT: Varcoe IN: Buddy

          OPTION – 2: Will be left with $306,400
          OUT: Zorko IN: Leuenberger
          OUT: L Brown IN: G Birchall or P Hanley (Which one do you reckon?)

          OPTION – 3: Will be left with only $18,900 in the bank
          OUT: Zorko IN: Buddy
          OUT: L Brown IN: G Birchall

          Which option do I need to be using………….

          I would really appreciate for any suggestion or comments…..

          Thanks Guys,

            @emhoy · 15/04/2013 at 17:56

            I also got burned by L Brown log way to go so don't give up

            I would go option 2 and go Birchall and am also giving L Brown the flick

jake7 · 15/04/2013 at 11:53

Hey guys I got 2349 this round which is alright, but still need a bit of cleaning up to do with my team.

DEF: Hanley, Gibbs, Goddard – Goodes, Pittard, Stevenson (Heath, Terlich)

MID: Gazza, Pendles, J.P.Kennedy, Cotchin, Moloney, Wines, Viney, K. Stevens (O'Meara, K. Mitchell)

RUCKS: Maric, Leuenberger (Blicavs, Currie)

FWD: Cox, Buddy, Rockliff, J.J Kennedy, Dwyer, Neade (Maccafer, Karnezis)

252,900 in the bank, which i am quite happy about.

Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated, especially on what to do with Karny and K. Mitchell as both have the potential to be Subs, week in, week out.

    chandanrajdb · 15/04/2013 at 12:04

    OUT K Mitchell IN: B Crouch
    OUT Karnezis or B MaCaffer IN: S Rowe
    K Mitchell will be dropped back to rookie list… per the news at herald sun website….

      jake7 · 15/04/2013 at 14:50

      Are you serious? Back onto the rookie list? Thanks for the heads up

    Terry · 15/04/2013 at 12:18

    Hi Jake7,
    With your cash in the bank, you could drop Karny to Sinclair/Rowe and up Macaffer to Westhoff/Dusty (i'd prefer Bartel, but you don't quite have enough cash.

      jake7 · 15/04/2013 at 14:52

      Ok.. thanks for the reply. Interesting, do you think the Hoff is going to keep his form? Looks amazing opening 3 rounds

Joel · 15/04/2013 at 12:00

Roughead to Leuenberger ??

    jake7 · 15/04/2013 at 14:53

    Yes, that would be a good trade, as roughead will go down and leuy up. And you can free up some cash for an upgrade, which is a bonus

Cezza · 15/04/2013 at 12:07

already done my two bloody trades, Jock!

Had enough of Tuck, traded him for JP Kennedy

Also traded Zorko out for Pendlebury

should be good moves in the long run!

team changa · 15/04/2013 at 12:26

any point still going for cash generation? shuey for rowe? leaving 820k

    SCaddict · 15/04/2013 at 12:54

    Yes cash generation is still a very desirable goal post Rd 3 and Shuey to Rowe would be a decent trade downwards to that end.

Jono · 15/04/2013 at 12:40

Possible trades for this round
Varcoe > Crouch
Varcoe > Hutchins
Which one do you think would be the better choice?

    EPR · 15/04/2013 at 15:15

    Hutchins, 2 solid scores of 78 and 80 against quality shows he can match it.

Pete · 15/04/2013 at 12:52

Hey community, would appreciate your feedback on the best trade options for me at the moment:

$180,100 in the bank

DEF: Hanley, Gibbs, Goddard, Goodes, Pittard, Stevenson, (C. Heath, L. Brown)

MID: Ablett, Swan, Selwood, JPK, Fyfe, Wines, Viney, O'Meara, (M. Jones, MK. Mitchell)

RUCK: Jacobs, Leuenberger (Blicavs, Currie)

FWD: Cox, Rockliff, Martin, J. Kennedy, Zorko, Neade, (Dwyer, Macaffer)

Thoughts on the following options:

Zorko > Rowe
L. Brown > Hutchins

Both Rowe and Hutchins due for big price increases, and I can slide Rowe across for Currie later on. Poor score for Brown in defence, but his price will still go up – not sure on this one…

Zorko > Rowe
K Mitchell > B Crouch

Mitchell looks to be a permanent sub option – I reckon Hinkley likes injecting his pace.

Currie > Rowe
Zorko > Sideways trade to someone like Bartel or Franklin?

Is there another option I'm overlooking? I'm leaning towards Option 1 because of cash generation, but the risk is a lower scoring team on the field…

    CHRIS · 15/04/2013 at 22:07

    currie to rowe or sinclair (WCE)
    brown to terlich or hutchins
    mitchell to crouch

SCaddict · 15/04/2013 at 12:58

My team is now thankfully spud free after cutting loose Zorko and Karny last night. Good riddance you are now someone else's problem!

Can just sit pretty for a few rounds now and watch the cows fatten nicely!

    Heytman · 16/04/2013 at 10:35

    Hey mate, after some advice:
    Currently got Varcoe and Zorko in fwds and Roughead in my ruck.
    Varcoe is my no.1 priority so I've swung Roughead into the forwards and traded in Luenerger.
    I'm not sure what to do with Zorko and Roughead. I'm leaning towards leaving them for one more week. I have Daw sitting on the bench in my rucks and was thinking of trading him to Rowe.

      SCaddict · 16/04/2013 at 20:46

      Definitely get Rowe in this week. However I'd actually hang on to Daw as I reckon it won't be too long before he gets an opportunity especially if North keep struggling.

      So I would discard either Zorko or Roughy depending on who you feel least confident about. I reckon both players have question marks hanging over them in terms of whether they can return to their scoring averages of last year.

      This will generate over $450K in cash which you will find invaluable over the next few weeks as you begin to upgrade rookie cash cows to premiums.

        Heytman · 16/04/2013 at 22:58

        Cheers! Great advice.
        I'm quite unsure as to which to trade out. They both have very similar breakevens which makes it difficult.
        I'm leaning more towards Zorko because of this 'niggling injury' and because he's also has an easier run of games than Roughead, in my opinion, and yet still scored low.

          SCaddict · 16/04/2013 at 23:23

          Yes tend to agree with you and would probably move on Zorko first. Whether it's because he's dealing with an injury or opposition are paying more attention to him this year or Vossy has changed his role he doesn't look like the guy who leapt on to the scene last season.

          Of course there's no guarantee he won't go for 130 this weekend but you have to weigh up the risks based on the information at hand.

          Roughy's forward ruck swing capabilities also has some value although I have my doubts about his 2013 SC scoring output levels too.

    Rocksta · 16/04/2013 at 21:04

    I also cut loose Zorko last Night, but upgraded to Buddy. I'm happy with the trade and like you I will also hold my fire for the next 2 Rounds, unless am hit with Injury or suspension. I have heaps of cash cows, but am only left with $90K after that trade. To improve this I will be looking at a downgrade target in 3 weeks in the ruck or forward line, when I think Blicavs will peak ( can swing Rowe into Ruck bench).
    Thoughts SCaddict?

      SCaddict · 16/04/2013 at 21:45

      I considered bringing in Buddy but at this stage I'm going with Monfries. Although I doubt Buddy will drop in price any further Monfries should increase in value more over the next few weeks. I was keen on starting the season with Monfries but went with LeCras instead.

      But I've liked what I've seen from Gus the with 3 opening tonnes albeit against questionable opposition so that's why he's probably coming in this week instead of Buddy. Still pretty good value at $410K imo.

      Plan to bring in Buddy in 2-3 weeks once one of my cash cow rookies has tripled in value. Have $600K in the bank but there's no rush here.

      I agree with your sentiments on Blicavs. It's hard to see him scoring much over 60 so his value should plateau soon. But myself personally I will only cash him out if another rookie ruck is on the bubble such as Witts, Currie or Daw or if I'm directly upgrading to a premium ruck.

        Rocksta · 16/04/2013 at 21:58

        Thanks SCaddict.

Jim · 15/04/2013 at 13:38

Thoughts on:

Kreuzer to Sinclair (Then put Cox into ruck, Rowe to FWD)

and then

Neade to Buddy (choosing either Macaffer or Rowe to be on field depending)

Matt · 15/04/2013 at 13:45

Do you think it is too late to jump on wines. Could trade k Mitchell for him?

    Jim · 15/04/2013 at 13:47

    Definitely NOT too late.

    Marc · 15/04/2013 at 19:39

    This week might be your last chance to get him at a good price. Get him now if you can.

Jimmy · 15/04/2013 at 13:53

After trading out Varcoe this week for sinclair so i can do the ruck forward swing with sam rowe i have already used 5 trades. after this week should i hold onto my trades for a few weeks so i dont burn them all?
Trades so far:
OUTVarcoe ($257,400) INSinclair ($112,200)
OUTMitchell ($126,200) INRockliff ($520,500)
OUTWalker ($536,000) INDwyer ($96,200)
OUTWatts ($460,100) INPearce ($458,800)
OUTEmbley ($283,600) INWines ($169,500)

    Marc · 15/04/2013 at 19:40

    Yea, i'd probably hold off until the cash cows fatten up a bit for the moment. Never know when injuries will strike too, so you don't want to be burning a ton of trades early in the year.

      John · 15/04/2013 at 21:43

      DO NOT get wines now! his price should only go down from here!

        Cezza · 16/04/2013 at 17:12

        yeah, mate…thats good reasoning right there…scored +100 pts round 1, had ashocking round 2, scored 120+ pts round 3…How the hell do you think he will go down in rpice? he has cemented his spot in the midfield!!!!

    AndrewS · 16/04/2013 at 19:28

    Hey guys, read the trade rules. You've got 2 every week and they don't accumulate.

artful_dodger · 15/04/2013 at 13:55

What do you think about trading out Shuey, swinging Heppell into the mid and picking up Birchall in defence?

Also how about trading Zorko for Westoff? Am I going a little sideways maybe?

    Tim · 15/04/2013 at 15:09

    Tough one mate. I have neither of them but I reckon they're both a strong chance to come good. Wouldn't be the worst move though. I'm not sold on Westoff yet…wouldn't be suprised if scores mainly 90's for the rest of the season

Alex · 15/04/2013 at 14:06

Is Varcoe to Sinclair and Maccaffer to Leunberger a waste of trades? That would mean I have 3 rookie rucks (Blicavs,Sinclair and Rowe in FWD line), is that a bit of a risk?

@yvraith · 15/04/2013 at 14:17

After much internal debate I decided to go with the following:
H. Shaw > J. Hutchins
D. Currie > Leuenberger
Leaving me a nice bank balance of $404.8K

Which leaves my side like this.
Def: Hanley, Gibbs, Goddard, Heppell, Pittard, Hutchins, Stevenson & Terlich
Mid: GAJ, Watson, Swan, Maloney, Wingard, Wines, B. Goodes, Viney, O'Meara & Kommer
Ruck: Maric, Leuenberger, Rowe & Blicavs
Fwds: Cox, JJ Kennedy, Rockliff, Lecras, Zorko, Neade, Dwyer & Macaffer

My reason for dropping H. Shaw, is that he is about to drop in price (due to his massive 51!) he really struggles when tagged & I don't think my defensive rookies are quite ripe to be cut from the vine just yet.
Plus if the projections on the prices are accurate, I should make about 100k in the move, when you combine the estimated drop of Shaw & rise of Hutchins.

    Joshau · 15/04/2013 at 15:10

    Leuenberger looks to be a very important selection this year – i wish I'd put my balls on the line for him in round 1 when he didn't get selected rather than going for Roughead! Leuey for sure.

Andrew · 15/04/2013 at 14:36

Looking for some advice from any seasoned veterans of the supercoach community!!

I chose to leave Karny and Varcoe in my side before round 3 as I seen my priorities lying elsewhere at that stage… It's come time to cut loose those blokes obviously but I'm looking for confirmation as to whether or not my current corrective trades are the right ones to make…

Karny out – Mayes in
Varcoe out – Westhoff in

I chose to do the first trade for obvious reasons and got Westhoff in from the cash I already had in the bank. I've got $217 k left in the kitty at this point so I'm feeling that the trade up was a reasonable move to make, especially given that Westhoff is off to a flyer and still going to generate cash post round 4. Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated community.

Tim · 15/04/2013 at 14:50

Thoughts on Sinclair? He looks good but I'm thinking he'll be straight out in 4-5 weeks when Nic Nat comes back. Could make some decent cash in the next month though

    ionnie · 15/04/2013 at 18:41

    I reckon – traded zork the dork for him and used the spare cash upgrading currie to berger

Rhys · 15/04/2013 at 15:00

Hey guys,
Stuck with Toby Greene for long enough, 47 on the weekend, don’t care if he comes out and gets 160 against melbourne, doesn’t deserve a spot in my team anymore.. And I think it’s time to jump on wines..
Greene to wines
Dud bench ruckman to luenberger to push cox forward adding to my forward line and rucks seems like a good trade.. Agree?

Was joking, Greene scores 160 this weekend I’ll be as angry as jock was with crouching one last night!

Joshau · 15/04/2013 at 15:07

DEF: Goddard, Gibbs, Heppell, Pittard, Stevenson, B Goodes, (Terlich, Docherty)
MID: GAJ, JPK, Watson, Dangerfield, Rich, Wines, O'Meara, Neade, (Viney, K Mitchell)
RUC: Jacobs, Leuenberger (Blicavs, Daw)
FWD: Cox, Rockliff, JJK, Zorko, Dwyer, Rowe (Karnezis, Macaffer)

There's obviously several spots that need solutions, but I've ranked my priorities as ditching "Zorko the piece of feces on a stick" and getting in a bubble boy.

Considering the killer recommendation of Zorko>Hanley, and perhaps Hutchins in for Docherty, leaving me with $434,700.

I'm ploughing through trades, but I'll have to deal with K Mitchell and Karny next week. What do you think?

    Joshau · 15/04/2013 at 15:26

    Alternative bubble boy would be K Mitchell>Crouch.

      JJFYZZ · 15/04/2013 at 16:27

      That's what I'm doing this week.

      KMichell to Crouch
      Karnezis to Rowe.

      Leaves me with a war chest of $667,700

      Sitting at 702. Ave of 2325

        ABC · 16/04/2013 at 10:13

        Holy crap!

        That is one well chosen team there my friend. How many trades do you have left?

Dan · 15/04/2013 at 15:40

Hello Community,

Need some help have some options.
OUT: Zorko IN: Monfries

OUT: Varcoe IN: S. Rowe

OUT: K. Mitchell IN: Moloney

Which 2 do i go for? Help is much appreciated

John · 15/04/2013 at 15:43

Is there any midfield rookies that have played 2 games apart from B. Crouch?

Dave2008 · 15/04/2013 at 15:47

Three players in the gun for me Zorko Mitchell and Daw. Thinking Zorko for Franklin Mitchell for Crouch and Daw for Rowe. Which two this week? Crouch and Rowe both on the bubble and Zorko has a big be and Buddy just 90.

    chandanrajdb · 15/04/2013 at 16:27

    1. Zorko to Buddy
    2. Daw to Rowe – this is because Rowe's JS has gone up after Kruezer getting injured and also hoping Rowe will get more Ruck time and eventually get big scores……..its only my opinion though…..

      Dave2008 · 15/04/2013 at 17:46

      So leave Mitchell at the moment? Crouch is on the bubble but Rowe is a priority I agree with Kruezer out and hardly any rookie rucks playing. I guess there will be other chances to move Mitchell

        chandanrajdb · 15/04/2013 at 20:33

        Hi Dave,

        News about K Mitchell is that he is listed back to rookie list… i would probably go for the below two trades,

        OUT: K Mitchell IN: B Crouch
        OUT: Zorko IN: Rowe

        Generate some cash and then upgrade to some premium next week if you have to…..

tim · 15/04/2013 at 16:30

Hey Jock bit of help would be appreciated.

Westhoff, the real deal?

Connor · 15/04/2013 at 16:38

OUT: zorko & shuey
IN: Kennedy (WCE) & birchall

Good trades? Any other suggestions greatly appreciated

    Jerry · 15/04/2013 at 17:23

    sound very good

Jerry · 15/04/2013 at 16:41

Which 2 of the following should I get IN:

Franklin, Cox, Leuenberger, Bartel.

    footyinme · 15/04/2013 at 16:48

    Franklin and Berger

    Big boy · 15/04/2013 at 18:07

    leuey, Cox

    chandanrajdb · 15/04/2013 at 20:36

    Cox and Leuenberger……..WCE have got some reasonably easy next 6 rounds…..and hope Cox would be good in those games……

    Leuenberger will average at about 90 to 100 this year and will generate some good cash and he is on the bubble……..

Eugene · 15/04/2013 at 16:54

Do you guys reckon now is the right time to get Buddy into my team?
SC Gold predicts that his price will rise for the next 2 games and will only drop to around $588,000 before Round 8.

    Eugene · 15/04/2013 at 16:59

    Btw, my forward line consists of:

    Cox, Bartel, JJK, Rockliff, Dwyer, Neade (Macaffer, Karn)

chris · 15/04/2013 at 17:02

the zorko – hanley trade is a beauty!!
what do you think of my team jock?

DEF: hanley, birchall, goddard, duffield, goodes, pittard, stevenson, terlich
MID: GAJ, pendles, hannebery, rockliff, viney, omeara, crouch, kommer, k.mitchell
RUCK: jacobs, mumford, rowe, currie
FWD: cox, kennedy, martin, franklin, neade, macaffer, dwyer, lee

$237,900 in the bank
used 5 trades now and don't look like using any trades for a while. might jump on a selwood or dangerfield when they go down a bit in the next 3 weeks and upgrade one of my rookies.

    Eugene · 15/04/2013 at 18:09

    missing a mid

      Chris · 15/04/2013 at 18:34

      And Gibbs in mid * thanks 🙂

steve · 15/04/2013 at 17:11

Do you think Varcoe to leuenburger is a good trade? and also shuey to moloney or hanley?

Sam89 · 15/04/2013 at 17:11

Will Nathan Fyfe keep up his magnificence of 100 points or more each week for the whole footy year? please guys chuck me an answer

    Jerry · 15/04/2013 at 17:27

    i reckon he'll average somewhere around 115. Gun.

    Nanna · 15/04/2013 at 21:44

    the hawks will smash him this week!

    Steely · 16/04/2013 at 23:30

    Gun, will average at least 110 for the yr, just not sure he can go 22 rounds injury free!

Jonno · 15/04/2013 at 17:34

I need to make about 4 trades this week… but im probably gonna make these:

Zorko and Roughead OUT for Cox/Bartel/Martin and Franklin. Then next week i'll trade out Blicavs who'll be around 200k to Leuenberger who'll be around 360k.

Sound good?

Cold Ass Honky · 15/04/2013 at 17:35

4,126th at the moment. Not hugely happy, been cursed by poor decisions i.e who to start on ground, Dangerfield's average performances etc.

Team as it stands is (4,400 left over):

Def: Gibbs, Goddard, Heppell, Goodes, Pittard, Stevenson (Terlich, Frost)

Mid: Pendlebury, Kennedy, Ablett, Deledio, Mundy, Dangerfield, Viney, O'Meara (Kommer, Jones)

Ruck: Maric, Leuenberger (Blicavs, Currie)

Fwd: Cox, Bartel, Kennedy, Rockliff, Dwyer, Neade (Karnezis, Macaffer)

Trade ideas (not including variations) I've thought of so far:
OUT: Dangerfield, Karnezis IN: Moloney, Monfries
OUT: Kommer, Karnezis IN: Wines, Rowe
OUT: Dangerfield, Karnezis IN: Rowe, ANYONE (can afford any player with this cash).

Thoughts community?
Cheers in advance

    @emhoy · 15/04/2013 at 18:01

    Your team looks nicely set up. I would go Danger out for Wines and Karnezis for Rowe, This gives you cash so you can make some upgrades round 5 and 6. This is the strategy I have gone with and I am ranked 4,568 and have $680,000 in bank.

      Cold Ass Honky · 17/04/2013 at 13:44

      Ended up going downgrading Danger to Wines, but upping Karnezis to Buddy.

Jimmy · 15/04/2013 at 17:41

Hi everyone. Just wondering would trading Varcoe for Jake stringer be a good pick? Stringer did kick 5 goals in the VFL. If he plays i think he would be a lock. With that money that I get who should I trade Kreuzer for? I am thinking Goldstein (but then would have goldy and Leueberger in ruck and North Melbourne vs Brisbane this week) Not convinced on Sam Jacobs and adelaide. Ben McEvoy or Ivan Maric?

Would love some feedback. Thankyou!

    Marc · 15/04/2013 at 19:46

    McEvoy is looking like the best option there. Jacobs has been playing shit but still scoring in the 100's so thats a plus at least.

Johno · 15/04/2013 at 18:09

hey guys.
just wondering if it's too late to go to ollie wines of the power?
thinking sideways from varcoe, thoughts?

    EPR · 15/04/2013 at 19:13

    Not too late, jump on him!

Tim · 15/04/2013 at 18:32

Yeah stringer could go alright if he plays but there's already Sam Mayes at a similar price who should keep gettting games at the Lions. I wouldn't worry too much about Goldy vs Luey. Ruck vs Ruck will happen during the year either way and if you look at some stats it doesn't really effect the scoring much. I think Goldy and Jacobs are good picks at that price. McEvoy and Maric will keep pumping out the scores, just gotta fork out the extra cash.

Cam · 15/04/2013 at 18:42

Ryder out for 4 weeks. I was keen on giving Bellchambers the flick but having second thoughts now. Thoughts?

Scott · 15/04/2013 at 18:50

DEF: goddard, gibbs, heppell, duffield, goodes, pittard, stevenson, terlich
MID: ablett, pendlebury, kennedy, sidebottom, dangerfield, moloney, wines, o'meara, viney, k.mitchell
RUC: leuenberger, rowe, witts, currie
FWD: cox, rockliff, zorko, kennedy, neade, dwyer, macaffer, kerridge

$490,800 in the bank

NEED some help please community, im so stuck on what to do!

i am pretty set on getting rid of zorko, and i have heard that k.mitchell is back on the rookie list.. so i was thinking:

OUT: Zorko
IN: Franklin OR Westhoff OR D.Martin OR Riewoldt

OUT: K.Mitchell
IN: Crouch
OR swing goodes into the MID and get IN: Birchall OR Burgoyne

if i chose franklin and burgoyne i would still have $150,500

    Loggo · 15/04/2013 at 20:10

    OUT: Zorko
    IN: Armfield

    OUT: K.Mitchell
    IN: Melksham

    CHRIS · 16/04/2013 at 01:42

    currie to sinclair
    mitchell to crouch
    B4 R5 kerridge to mayes
    need to earn more cash over next few rounds

Josh · 15/04/2013 at 19:27

matt jones or sam mayes?

Pierre Martin Johane · 15/04/2013 at 20:32

should i trade out Kommer (suspended for 2 rounds) and Varcoe (injured – should come back around round 5) or just keep them on my bench and hope that the rest of my team will play? I was thinking if i did this then i could make cash on other trades rather than having to deal with Varcoe and Kommer. Is this idea completely stupid or is it a good idea??? Please be honest and tell me what you think

    Cold Ass Honky · 15/04/2013 at 20:53

    Varcoe will be out 3 months

    John · 16/04/2013 at 10:38

    I am thinking the same things this week. I think Varcoe will be out for more than a couple but could be wrong so was looking for the bubble and it suited me to go with Rowe who should go up after playing his third game this week and also gives me some coverage for Ryder who is out for 3. On the Kommer side of things I was thinking a straight swap for Crouch who is also on the bubble.

John · 15/04/2013 at 20:35

Varcoe to Mayes or Leuenberger?

Sam · 15/04/2013 at 20:42

Another awesome podcast gents!!!
Thoughts on my team???

DEF: Gibbs, Goddard, Heppell, Duffield, Goodes, Pittard (Stevenson, Terlich)

MID: GAJ, Pendles, Dangerfield, Shuey, Fyfe, Stevens, Wines, O'Meara (Viney, Crouch)

RUC: Jacobs, Luenberger (Rowe, Currie)

FWD: Cox, Rockliff, Walker, Monfries, Kennedy, Dwyer (Neade, Macaffer)

10,900k and 26 trades left…
Cheers for any advice 🙂

Tom · 15/04/2013 at 20:44

Ok so i have no idea what i should do this week:

DEF: Goddard, Gibbs, Heppell, Atley, Goodes, Terlich (Stevenson, Pittard)

MID: Pendles, JPK, Deledio, Dangerfield, Fyfe, Wines, O'meara, Viney (Crouch, Mitchell)

RUC: Jacobs, Rowe (Blicavs, Daw)

FWD: Cox, Rockliff, Kennedy, LeCras, Dwyer, Neade (Varcoe, Macaffer)
$637.5k left in the bank


-Atley –> Hanley/Birchall/Roberton/Rookie?
-Varcoe –> The Hoff/Monfries/Other?
-Dangerfield –> Wingard/S.Mitchell/Swallow/Watson?
-Blicavs –> Leuenberger?

    Dave · 15/04/2013 at 21:01

    I'd take Varcoe Out, move Rowe to forwards, Leuy in and upgrade Atley to Hanley (before his price gets ridiculously high).

    Leave Dangerfield and aim to bring your rookies/midpricers up to Premiums over the next few weeks, using that big pile of cash you've got.

    Dan · 15/04/2013 at 21:40

    for atley i would go birchall
    for varcoe i would go monfries
    for dangerfield mitchell
    for blicavs definantly luenberger
    all these players that i have named i have in my side and i would also reccomend luke hodge who has scored like a gun consider him cheap due to injuries

    CHRIS · 16/04/2013 at 01:02

Tim · 15/04/2013 at 20:59

Please help community!!
Who should I downgrade too for Ryder?
I have been think Leuenberger and monfries but I’m not sure which one! and if you guys have any other opinions can u please say
Thank you community

James · 15/04/2013 at 21:25

Hey Jock is this your email
[email protected]

Trying to sort out your own folder for my email

Matt · 15/04/2013 at 21:36

got my man hodgey in anybody else considering him?

Craig · 15/04/2013 at 21:59

For those contemplating ditching Dangerfield I dont see the logic. At worst he is good enough for M8 position. He may drop in price but our premiums are not picked for cash generation. That’s what the rookies are for. Injury is the only reason to get rid of a gun. We need to get our side full of premiums as quick as possible. A sideways trade does nothing but delay that. Just my 2 cents.

    Rocksta · 15/04/2013 at 22:08

    Fully agree, but am going to have the bite the Bullet on a sideways trade for Zorko in my Forward Line. It is clear that unfortunately he isnt a lock.

      Cam · 15/04/2013 at 22:17

      Agree mate. If it's going to re-stabilize the team then I wouldn't think twice about it. Can't just sit there and watch a player keep dropping in price with average scores

        Rocksta · 15/04/2013 at 22:22

        Dusty or Bartell or Robbo?

          Craig · 15/04/2013 at 23:05

          I recon Dusty out of those. Zorko is a tricky one I have him too. If I trade him I am going against what I said above though. I am going to hold him. In the past I would have traded him but not this year. I am sticking to my plan. I have a feeling this one might bit me in the bum though.

            Rocksta · 15/04/2013 at 23:31

            Craig, I agree with you about sideways trading and as such have been agonizing about the decision all night. But I am just very sceptical about holding Zorko as a lock. He's only played 19 games of AFL Footy and the reality is I never should have put him in over Bartell in the first place. His tackle count is well down so far and that was one of the main reasons he always seemed to get a decent score week in week out last year.Dusty really hasnt been that bad this year. He only played a half of footy in the first 2 games but absolutely blitzed on the weekend. His BE is 35 so worst case scenario it will be quite a while before he goes back below his starting price. Havent made up my mind 100% yet but Zorko just seems a long way off it at present.

              Craig · 16/04/2013 at 17:57

              Yep Zorko does not look anywhere near as good as last year and looks like dropping some coin. He may be the exception but I am still going to hold. I know in the past as soon as I have off loaded one of my original premiums they smash it the next round. At worst he could be a very handy F7 bench for me. Especially with his DPP.

                Rocksta · 16/04/2013 at 19:33

                To get rid of the sideways trade dilemma, I have decided to upgrade him to Buddy. It will still leave me with $90K in the Bank.

spinnerau1 · 15/04/2013 at 22:05

Evening all!
What a shocking start to SC I’ve had!!

A miserable 1843 in a league whos average is only 2034 and the highest score was 2347.
I feel like Im the Melbourne Demons of my League!! The culprits for this poor excuse of a score are:

DEF: Goddard, Heppell, B. Goodes, L. Stevenson, Shaw, Trelich (Frost, Vlastuin)

MID: Pendles, Gazza, Gibbs, Swan, Dangerfield, Omeara, Dwyer, Crouch, (Viney, Kommer)

RUCKS: Bellchambers, Roughead (Rowe, Currie)

FWD: Cox, Varcoe, Rockliff, Neade, Zorko, LeCras (Macaffer, Lee)

$188,600 left
I’m at a loss as to where to go.

My goal is to win my league ($300 for the winner…no 50 grand but still good for a 25 buck outlay!!)

I know I have some good players and rookies that will help me pick up more premium players as the season rolls on but im worried about inconsistency.

Im pretty sure im going to trade Varcoe out for Kennedy. Should I be worried about my Rucks?

Suggestions would be HUUUUUGELY appreciated, as always.

Thanks guys!

    Rocksta · 15/04/2013 at 22:19

    I reckon downgrade Roughead to Luey to generate more cash, but you need to do it this week as Luey should go up approx $50K this week. The varcoe trade is a hard one as it will cost you plenty to upgrade to Kennedy( he went up $75K this week – you should have done it last week). That said, you need to get him out as he will be out for up to 3 months. At least downgrading Roughy to Luey will more than cover the outlay from varcoe to Kennedy. leaving you with more in the bank than you started with.

    Dave · 15/04/2013 at 22:53

    Varcoe out for Mayes from bris had 71 first game highly rated
    Roughie for luey
    Zorko for cloke
    Other than that your side is pretty solid just a bad week stick with it.

    FotherMucker · 18/04/2013 at 19:52

    I have a very similar team and share your heartache – most other weeks we would be languishing in an oasis of bliss but we have been hammered unmercifully with too many of these players. I am saying your Mids are A1, backs A2, and in the forwards you at least have to deal with Varcoe.Keep LeCras.I am sticking with Zorko – I think he will lift his output as Rockliff, Redden, Rich, Black, start rolling properly. He should get back his starting price with some bigger numbers. Aim for some decent ruck stocks 'cause I think that's a critical weakness – spend your cash and upgrade a ruck. Good luck.

Rocksta · 15/04/2013 at 22:05

Just heard that Kane Mitchell has been put back on to The Rookie List and won't be eligible again for elevation until mid season.
Also, Zorko has played approximately 20 Games of AFL Footy. I just cant see how he is a Lock, and quite Frankly have lost patience with Him. I hate Sideways trades as I see them as a waste, but I think that's better than keeping a so called Lock whom isn't good enough/seasoned enough to rely on as a lock.
Any Thoughts?

    John · 16/04/2013 at 17:57

    im picking up Monfries. good start and 410k

Charlie · 15/04/2013 at 22:35

Hey guys, Kane Mitchel has been put back on the rookie list I hear? I have 2 major worries in zorko and roughead with 300k in the bank. I think I will stick with zorko for now, but I was thinking of trading roughead put for leuy and then upgrading Kane Mitchel to a Luke hodge or a David Hanneberry while they are still at a reasonable price? Let me know what you guys think, would be greatly appreciated!

Dave2008 · 15/04/2013 at 22:47

Thinking this week Zorko our for Buddy or Mitchell out for Crouch and Daw out for Rowe. Buddy has a reasonable be of around 90, Zorko will lose more money and Rowe is on the bubble and Daw not getting a game. That and Kreuzers injury mean Rowe is an astute trade in this week I think.

David · 15/04/2013 at 22:59

Any ideas in who i can replace zorko with in my forward line??

Michael · 15/04/2013 at 23:15

I am tempted to trade Zorko for Franklin as I have a decent amount of money in the bank after I trade J.Roughead for Leuey, good idea? Or will Franklins price drop more?

    dannyboy · 15/04/2013 at 23:28

    buddys BE is at 93, he has scored 116 and 121 last 2 weeks. its fair to say he wont drop to much more at all mate, get him in i say. i wish i had a choice that easy.

      Michael · 15/04/2013 at 23:53


    Eugene · 16/04/2013 at 11:37

    Yes I am faced with the same thing but for me, I will be trading Karn to Buddy.

dannyboy · 15/04/2013 at 23:44

im finding it hard to justify dropping zorko for dusty, tigers have a hard 3 games coming up. monfries is another option but im currently fielding 4 port players with one on the bench which might make it to many. daisy thomas is one to look at but i wanna give him one more week to prove himself. i can afford bartel but that leaves $800 in the bank and his consistancy worries me a bit. same story with big saint nick, i love this game but bloody hell its stressfull, im sure there is many in this situation so any thoughts from anyone will be much appreciated

    Rocksta · 15/04/2013 at 23:50

    I have the same Dilemma. Just cant justify keeping Zorko in as a Lock, and if I trade him will probably go for Dusty (BE 35). Zorko for Bartell is just too much of a cost turn around and the only reason he scored that 140+ 2 weeks ago is becasue he kicked the winning Goal.

jaffhammer · 16/04/2013 at 02:29

I need to drop Watts this week. Unfortunately I missed the Pierce Hanley and Charlie Dixon trains so have decided on a defensive rookie on the bubble. Should I go with Dean Terlich or Jack Hutchins?

My other problem is Jamie Cripps, I chose him as a POD and because of a depleted West Coast midfield, but he is getting the vest and the injury list is shortening. Do I give him more time or trade him out? If so, is it too late to to jump on Chad Wingard or Aaron Mullet? Or should I go with my gut and take the impressive rookie Sam Mayes so I can sell someone like Josh Kennedy (WC), throw Sam forward and buy an out of form premium like Dangerfield in a few weeks?

Thanks for your help!

A Wiser Man · 16/04/2013 at 05:57

Great podcast as usual, Jock!

I'm down to 27 trades (rookie fix-ups, LTIs). Which of the following should I do this week?

1: Karne > Rowe
Varcoe > Cotchin using Dwyer DPP

2: Karne > Rowe
Daw > Sinclair

Is it worth the two trades to get rid of an LTI and Karne? My thoughts are that those trades are justified if I'm bringing in my first midfield upgrade already.

    @Da_Mad_Irishman · 16/04/2013 at 13:35

    I like your first option best – BRING IN A PREMIUM

      A Wiser Man · 16/04/2013 at 16:41

      Thanks buddy!

        Jack · 16/04/2013 at 19:04

Shannan · 16/04/2013 at 06:36

Hey guys! I nearly scored 2100 last week but I had Ollie Wines on the bench and O’Meara on the field which cost me!

Just swapped out Dangerfield for Pendlebury and Roughead for Cox! Should be raking in some more points now haha!

    @Da_Mad_Irishman · 16/04/2013 at 13:33

    Roughead to Cox = good
    Dangerfield to Pendlebury = sideways – not sure you will get the value you expect from this trade

David · 16/04/2013 at 07:34

Hey guys, just wondering, who should I trade in for varcoe? Callum sinclair or sam mayes?

    @Da_Mad_Irishman · 16/04/2013 at 13:31

    if you can wait a week on Mayers – but if thats not possible I like Mayes better than Sinclair

Tom · 16/04/2013 at 07:44


    pdid · 16/04/2013 at 08:44

    I would go Birchall. Proven consistency. Personal favourite in defence.

    Rocksta · 16/04/2013 at 19:35

    Either. Both Guns

Elijah · 16/04/2013 at 08:52

Hi Guys

Any value in Varcoe to Chris Knights?

    @Da_Mad_Irishman · 16/04/2013 at 13:29

    The only value been knights is currently playing – Vest worry and best 22 worry could mean he isn't playing for that long and don't see him pumping out big scores either

    Better options out there for me – Varcoe to Rowe if you don't have him

Joel · 16/04/2013 at 10:38

Roughead to Luenberger
Zorko to Franklin
278,400 left in cap
Good trades?

    @Da_Mad_Irishman · 16/04/2013 at 13:27

    Like Luenberger, unsure on Franklin. Who else is in your forward line ??

    Rocksta · 16/04/2013 at 19:59

    Good trades, and still plenty of cash left over. I would do it

THESALTSHAKERS · 16/04/2013 at 12:21

Prior to round 3 got rid of Houli for some cash towards Leuy's bubble this week I was thinking the Port players can score – and he hits 100+ (awesome!) besides the Port defenders and O'Meara having a low score I did ok.

So…JOCK and community need some feedback my team!!!

Sitting 3071

I have $312k in bank and definiately getting in Leuy. My first thought is OPTION 1 – but Since Hodge scored well I have OPTION 2 – and so the players in (BOLD) is there for OPTION 2 which might give you an idea of the structure.

DEF: Gibbs, Goddard, Grimes, Goodes, Stevenson, Pittard –Terlich Brown

MID: GAJ, Pendles, JPK, Swanny, Wines, Viney, OMeara, Kommer — (GRAY) Varcoe

RUCKS: Goldy, Rowe — (BLICAVS) Currie

Buddy, Cox, Rocky, Bartel, Kennedy, Dwyer — Mcaff, Neade

OPTION 1 (SAFETY) Currie > Leuy $120k left
Gray is sniffing selection should I wait give him 2 games then make a call might be able to stick with and then grab someone bottoming out around time of his bubble?

It will allow me to make more coin off Blicavs and use only 1 trade on Currie who is doing nothing with dislocated finger & Nths 1 ruck policy. This leaves me with $112k in the bank and should give me the coin to go into Luke Ball from Pies

OPTION 2 (AGGRESSIVE) Blicavs > Leuy & Gray > Hodge 17K left

This can only happen this week cos of Hodges bubble.

PROS: I but i dont see many potential premiums of Hodgeys scoring ability bottom to 450k? Dont see many downgrade ruck options from Blicavs on horizon.

CONS: it could be crippling if Hodge gets inj again / rollercoaster but it will cost me Blicavs $$$ from ripening properly and will mean Currie still sitting there on a dill pickle. Put Gray into my side expecting maybe a round 2 or 3 return and saving a trade. He is sniffing but so far its costing me points do I now burn that trade that I had up my sleeve? May not get chance to get on Hodge again without a couple of trades to do so.

Won't have any free coin for Luke Balls return.


Only my 3rd year of SC – should i be aggressive or play the safe game? Some decent feedback analysis from some experienced coachs/minds would be welcomed lads

    THESALTSHAKERS · 16/04/2013 at 12:24

    *excuse the typos (didn't proof read)

    @Da_Mad_Irishman · 16/04/2013 at 13:23

    Goodday The Salt Shakers,

    First up, Great Team !! you've done well with your initial picks.

    Trading is always going to come down to the persons gut feeling regarding the players he is looking to bring in. I dare say that your gut is telling you be aggressive. On this front I wouldn't be too concerned waiting on Blicavs to reach his peak and see no problem off loading him now – will rise maybe 35k this week and 25k the next so you're not really missing out on that much cash. Again I wouldn't worry about Currie either. If anything happenes to Goldy then he'll come in and you still have a ruck option. I like having him there providing me with a Captain Loop hole every week.
    The only aspect I'd be concerned about is Hodge. Is a gun but an injury worry. That will have to be your call – No guts no Glory

      THESALTSHAKERS · 16/04/2013 at 18:16

      Cheers Mick – the no guts no glory is deafening in my ears! I feel its a little too late to jump on a wingard, moloney or mullet that really had to be last week. I know Hodgeys injury prone and it is a concern. Am hoping he can do a Juddy in 2011 returning from injury, play like he hasn't skipped a beat and last out the season. So might have to roll the dice. Not really much of a midprice risk taker and it cost me in my first year missing out on Petrie's rise, and last year not getting on Hayes. Any inside word on Gray offering value at that price? After Hinkleys article on him hitting 25 pos 3 goals in SANFL prior to round 1 was expecting a rnd 2 or 3 return. Named in extended bench last week in an improving side with some real belief formulating will he slot straight back in – he's even more inj prone than Hodge haha but $150k cheaper – thoughts?

spinnerau1 · 16/04/2013 at 12:41

G'day all!

Well i took "Rocksta's" advice……..Roughie out, Luey in and Varcoe is out for Kennedy. Hope this adds some much needed points to the woeful 1843 of last round! Hoping of course that the prems that didnt fire will do so this week.

These moves have given me $276,500 in the kitty so im sort of happy with that. "sort of" as part of me thinks that thats a hell of a lot sitting doing nothing right now, but a larger part of me is is happy to keep it for when the cash cow(s) are eady to sell!

anyway, what do you guys think?

@Da_Mad_Irishman · 16/04/2013 at 13:12

best options by far – lock those changes in – with that 276k you will actually be able to start upgrades next week if you like .. you'll turn that 1843 into 2200 in no time

    spinnerau1 · 16/04/2013 at 14:35

    Thanks irish! This is why I love this site……plenty of great advice and honest opinions!! 🙂

Eugene · 16/04/2013 at 14:03

Is now the right time to get Buddy into my team?
SC Gold predicts that his price will rise for the next 2 games and will only drop to around $588,000 before Round 8.
My forward line already consists of:

Cox, Bartel, JJK, Rockliff, Dwyer, Neade (Macaffer, Karn)

Any input much appreciated, cheers!

    THESALTSHAKERS · 16/04/2013 at 18:29

    Yeah might be a good time – with his rolling 3 game avg his last two games seem to have got him over the first 3 rounds and should carry him through 4 and 5 unless he has a shocker. They had him up the ground and around the stoppages early and he made a difference with his pace breaking the lines against Pies. His only concern was he had the toughest 7 game start to the season out of anyone over $600k (unlike Premiers Sydney who had GWS, GCS, NM – which needs to be looked at for 2014) he's got through 3 of them with a small price drop and Hawks seem to be flying, so yeah come round 8 its gravy. Now might be the time – your fwd line would be identical to mine. I feel pretty solid with mine currently

      Eugene · 16/04/2013 at 20:17

      Cheers mate, what a solid answer! Who should I trade out for Buddy? Mac or Karn?

    Jonno · 16/04/2013 at 19:53

    dont listen to anything SC Gold tells you! His B/E is around 80 so im getting him in this week

I have 26 trades left with $91,300 in my salary cap. so could anyone please offer some motives and/or advice on what I should do in terms of trading etc.

    THESALTSHAKERS · 16/04/2013 at 18:49

    Not sure what the sitch is with Kane Mitchell is he or isn't off the rookie list/allowed to play? Im hearing mid year before he can? Not sure? you'll need to check on sources for an accurate call. You could possibly turn him into Brad Crouch on the bubble then Kommer (out for 2 weeks) into Wines who could be $400k by the time Kommer returns. Doesn't hurt when Hinkley is comparing Wines to Selwood in terms of guts in the contests and one of the best first year players he's seen. Might be a bit of a silly trade to many? Then again if he does a Barlow and continue with 100s you'll be bleeding if your not on him – I had the chance to get on Zorko last year even after his bubble but chose Cloke instead feeling I'd missed the party bus and Cloke would turn it around big mistake! After that I'd sit for a bit….

    Nanna · 16/04/2013 at 14:56

    wait for your rookies to appreciate in value and consider getting the extra premiums across your lines. or you may want to look at switching a couple of your non-performing rookies to enhance wait will come in eg wines? or mayes?

      Sam89 · 16/04/2013 at 15:41

      cheers "nanna" i keep that in mind

    THESALTSHAKERS · 16/04/2013 at 18:50

    Not sure what the sitch is with Kane Mitchell is he or isn't off the rookie list/allowed to play? Im hearing mid year before he can? Not sure? you'll need to check on sources for an accurate call. You could possibly turn him into Brad Crouch on the bubble then Kommer (out for 2 weeks) into Wines who could be $400k by the time Kommer returns. Doesn't hurt when Hinkley is comparing Wines to Selwood in terms of guts in the contests and one of the best first year players he's seen. Might be a bit of a silly trade to many? Then again if he does a Barlow and continue with 100s you'll be bleeding if your not on him – I had the chance to get on Zorko last year even after his bubble but chose Cloke instead feeling I'd missed the party bus and Cloke would turn it around big mistake! After that I'd sit for a bit….

Tom.H · 16/04/2013 at 15:20

Went Atley –> Birchall then Daw–> Leuenberger

Will leave Varcoe on the bench and most likely trade him to Mayes next week


    SupercoachSlayer101 · 17/04/2013 at 19:19

    yeah sounds good but maybe go for a dwyer or neade over mayes

    @TheDishD · 18/04/2013 at 10:27

    good trades, but yes id be looking at dwyer/neade over mayes too, mayes has only had one good game, at least watch him for another week before pulling the trigger on him.

Les · 16/04/2013 at 16:00

I need some help
I am thinking trading out koby stevens for chad wingard. I have the cash to do it straight. Chad wingard is expected to go up 62 thousand and they are playing gold coast. he is also expected to reach 490k by seasons end

Callum · 16/04/2013 at 16:14

Really wanted to bring in a premium this week but couldn't find space.

Karnezis~ Rowe
Zorko~ Leunberger (swing cox forward)
left with $554,600, I figured that money will help for later in the season to upgrade the rookies. Any thoughts?

    Sam89 · 16/04/2013 at 16:57

    consider wingard from port, hayes from birsbane, and/or hutchins from gold coast

    dannyboy · 16/04/2013 at 21:14

    how do you swap zorko for luenberger by swinging cox forward? it doesnt make sense to me

      dannyboy · 16/04/2013 at 21:24

      omg i just figured out what you mean i had no idea you could do that have you always been able to do it???

        Callum · 17/04/2013 at 15:45

        since last year

@TheDishD · 16/04/2013 at 17:40

Carlton FC confirm that Kreuzer will only be out for 3-4 weeks instead of 8 weeks

Michael · 16/04/2013 at 18:01

Hi folks, great feedback everyone, give yourselves a big pat on the back!
Here's some options I'm considering this week:

1. Zorks – Luey, Shuey – Hodge $267,800 left, projected 2146
2. H.Shaw – Hutchins, Currie – Luey $257,700 left, projected 2212
3. Zorks – Luey, H.Shaw – Hutchins $636,300 left, projected 2130 (then get Buddy next week)
4. Zorks – Luey, Shuey – Buddy $138,700 left, projected 2156

Leaning towards either 3 or 4 at this stage, what do you guys think? Or if you have other ideas (apart from Westhoff – I think he'll drop considerably), thanks!

    Browny1 · 16/04/2013 at 19:50

    I reckon number 3 mate. Get buddy next week

    CHRIS · 16/04/2013 at 20:24

    sell shuey move zorko to mid buy rowe or sinclair
    currie to leuenberger

John · 16/04/2013 at 18:05

Hi guys,

i have 3 possible trades

Zorko for Monfries

K. Mitchell for Cotchin

Varcoe for Rowe

please respond as i need help!

    Eugene · 16/04/2013 at 20:20

    Varcoe for Rowe is a solid trade, not sure about Zorko to Monfries though

    CHRIS · 16/04/2013 at 20:27

    varcoe for rowe or sinclair
    mitchell for crouch or B4 R5 mayes

Ben · 16/04/2013 at 18:09

I need a good, consistent forward under 600k. Don't want Buddy. I was thinking about maybe Rockliff or Bartel. What are your thoughts?

    Browny1 · 16/04/2013 at 19:51


      Ben · 16/04/2013 at 20:26

      thnx man. i'm trusting you. Btw, what makes you say rockliff?

        Browny1 · 16/04/2013 at 20:36

        Yes rocky had a quiet game but jock and the team all think he's a lock and cheaper than Bartel. Also, the only reason Bartel got over 140 2 weeks a go is because he kicked the winning goal. Won't happen every week and reckon rocky will be top 5 forward by the end of the year – he almost is now

Michael · 16/04/2013 at 18:36

FYI all, rookie 2 gamers on the bubble this week:

Hutchins (DEF) $115,900 BE -100 Proj +$77,600
Rowe (FWD/RUC) $115,900 BE -77 Proj +$66K
Crouch (MID) $115,900 BE -70 Proj +$61,500
Sinclair (RUC) $112,200 BE -59 Proj +$53,500
Terlich (DEF) $109,500 BE -57 Proj +$51,500
Frost (DEF) $96,200 BE -57 Proj +$50,400
Merrett (MID) $137,000 BE -52 Proj +$43,300
Macaffer (FWD) $128,000 BE -32 Proj +$36,200

Hope that helps with picking some cows this week!

Michael Robbinson · 16/04/2013 at 18:43

Hello Dream Team / Super Coach community!

What are your thoughts on this double trade
Kommer – OUT and B Crouch – IN.
Varcoe – OUT and Rowe moves to the forward line and Leuenberger – IN.

Are these Good or Bad trades? Or can you think of some better players to trade out and in?


    Eugne · 16/04/2013 at 20:19

    I am liking the second trade, bring in Leuey!

    CHRIS · 16/04/2013 at 20:31


Train · 16/04/2013 at 20:03

Does anyone know when Nic Nat is due back?

James · 16/04/2013 at 20:43

rockliff, westoff or bartel?

    Sam · 16/04/2013 at 21:11

    Rockliff! Absolute lockkkkk!!!

      James · 16/04/2013 at 21:22

      thanks man

Jon · 16/04/2013 at 21:15

ok so I have $197,200 left and i wanna put "Shuey on foot" so who do I replace him with?

My mids are – Ablett, Pendles,Dangerfield, Liberatore, Wines, Viney, Kommer, Omeara and Varcoe

Thanks in advance

    vinny mac · 17/04/2013 at 01:52

    perhaps varcoe to crouch, then viney to shuey?

      Jon · 17/04/2013 at 20:28

      I mean trade out Shuey but thanks about Varcoe – Crouch

Sam · 16/04/2013 at 21:16

I have 10.900k left in the bank,
And I want to get rid of Walker before his price drops again (BE = 167). Who for
Martin (BE = 57) or Westoff (BE = -9)??? This is clearly the only week I could afford one of them…

    James · 16/04/2013 at 21:25

    Taylor or Andrew?

      Ben · 16/04/2013 at 21:28

      Experts say that the in form player is the go for pick, which in this case is westhoff. He is also playing the gold coast. However, martin can be explosive and with a game against collingwood, he could rack in big points. That's all i have to say. Hope i helped.

Jon · 16/04/2013 at 21:17

ok so I have $197,200 left and i wanna put "Shuey on foot" so who do I replace him with?

Jon · 16/04/2013 at 21:18

ok so I have $197,200 left and i wanna put "Shuey on foot" so who do I replace him with?

I have ablett, pendles, danger, liberatore, wines, omeara, kommer, varcoe and viney.

    James · 16/04/2013 at 21:21

    Varcoe's injured and Kommer's suspended for two weeks.

Matt · 16/04/2013 at 22:52

I think i am in need of some help. Here is my current team:

Defenders: Birchall, Gibbs, Goddard, Goodes, Thompson, Pittard (Heath and Terlich
Midfielders: Kennedy, Fyfe, Selwood, Swan, Dangerfield, Maloney, Viney (Crouch and K Mitchell)

Rucks: Maric and Jamar (Currie and Rowe)

Forwards: Franklin, Westhoff, JJ Kennedy, Dwyer, Neade and Zorko (Macaffer and Kerridge)

I am thinking getting rid of Jamar, Dangerfield and Zorko any suggestions on who i should get in for them, any other comments on my team would be appreciated.

    Simma · 16/04/2013 at 22:56

    I'd ditch Jamar for Leuenberger and upgrade Zorko to an elite FWD. Danger should come good, but may be good will only be averaging 105 or so? Who knows…

      Simma · 16/04/2013 at 22:57

      105 is still a decent average but far from what we all expected

        THE SALTSHAKERS · 16/04/2013 at 23:24

        yeah jamar > leuy

        zorko > cox

        gives you ruck cover with rowe if any rests/ inj and if cox goes down trade to anyone you wont find too many rucks avg 100-110ppg like leuy or fwds avg 110 like cox

          THE SALTSHAKERS · 16/04/2013 at 23:25

          *like leuy @ 300k

          Matt · 16/04/2013 at 23:27

          will only have 598K after trading jamar to leuy and zorko, so i was thinking either bartel, N or J Reiwoldt or Rockliff? any other suggestions or are one of those alright?

            Eugene · 17/04/2013 at 09:25

            Toss between Bartel and Rockliff but I'd go Rockliff, he will score big very soon!

          Matt · 16/04/2013 at 23:33

          will only have 598K, meaning i was thinking bartel, N or J Reiwoldt or Rockliff, any other suggestions?

            vinny mac · 17/04/2013 at 02:00


uditha · 17/04/2013 at 08:38

HI guys

thinking of upgrading K mitchell to Dusty martin and sub him with dwyer to play in my fwd line. what do u think guys.


Stan · 17/04/2013 at 09:26

Could you please explain the captains loophole,not getting the gist of it????

    ABC · 17/04/2013 at 09:50

    If you have a non-playing player (npp) in your team then you can stick the VC on someone playing in a game before the team that your npp plays for.
    If you like your VCs score then put your npp on the field as captain and name an emergency on the corresponding position's bench and you'll get your VCs score!

crunch · 17/04/2013 at 11:56

hey jocko
love your work chiefo
here is my team:
B: Goddard, Gibbs, Hurn, Goodes, Stevenson, Brown (Terlich, Docherty)
M: Ablett, Deledio, Fyfe, Priddis, Steven, Wines, Viney, O'Meara (Hill, Rampe)
R: Jacobs, Rowe (Blicavs, Currie)
F: Cox, Bartel, Kennedy, Rockliff, Franklin, Dwyer (Neade, Macaffer)

left with 27 trades and 485,400 in the bank
looking at getting in leuey and hutcho for rampe and docherty respectively
what do you think? would leave me with 25 trades and 280,500 in the bank

also curious about docherty and curries propsects? will they be blooded anytime soon?

Cold Ass Honky · 17/04/2013 at 13:46

Plenty of solid loophole options this week:

JPK v Cats
Buddy v Freo
Maric v depleted Collingwood ruck stocks
Deledio v Pies

Who would i be best going with?

    Eugene · 17/04/2013 at 13:54

    JPK as VC then Pendles as C, that would be what I'm gonna do…

      Cold Ass Honky · 17/04/2013 at 14:07

      Oops forgot to add that i have Pendles. Solid idea mate

Scott · 17/04/2013 at 15:27

OUT: Zorko
In: D.Martin

OUT: Kerridge
IN: Westhoff

would this be good trades, or stupid?

i dont have Crouch so im not sure if i should get him or do the above trades… both martin and westhoff should almost certainly go up in price next week also..

i do have a hard game this week too and i need to win! haha

    Scott · 17/04/2013 at 15:29

    i do also have K.Mitchell in my midfield reserves so could trade him for crouch

    P.S. with the above trades i would still have $115 000 in the kitty…

    (playing DT not SC)

      Callum · 17/04/2013 at 15:52

      If you have kerridge keep him, I think he will be a good cash generator mid season. Definitely get rid of K.mitchell, crouch is probably your best idea.

team changa · 17/04/2013 at 15:38

roughhead out for rowe?

Callum · 17/04/2013 at 15:49

got rid of bennel last week and brought in parker. I had wingard all week then about 5 mins before sydneys game i thought wingards form wont last, but as it seems i was wrong. Anyway would a roughead/zorko to martin be a good trade, i know it's sideways but i am downgrading karnezis to rowe or maybe leunberger. OR roughead/ zorko to leunberger?

    Callum · 17/04/2013 at 16:01

    Or keep zorko and roughead get rid of karnezis for rowe and trade currie for leunberger. this way i keep the ability to swap roughead/rowe into the ruck for cox?

John · 17/04/2013 at 17:40

Tough week this week but some things have forced my trading hands.

K. Mitchell to B. Crouch – was going to do this with Kommer but with Mitchel back on the rookie list and unlikely to play it is better to hope that Kommer will come back in after 2 weeks off suspended.

T. Varcoe to S. Rowe. On the bubble and leaves me hanging on to Paddy Ryder until his return in 3 weeks.

Overall this leaves my team light on for emergencies for a few weeks but I can't see any other better options.

SammyC · 17/04/2013 at 18:04

ok im just not getting a good vibe from Dane Swan for some reason. I don't know why? I have 2 options in terms of double trades with Dane:



If anyone says "yes", who should I pick up? cos if I do trade pend swan ill have $735,900 to use. and if i trade pend Whitfield at the same time ill have $962,600 to use.


PLUS i heard Gary Ablett might be out this week. Is that true? If its true,

SHOULD I DOUBLE TRADE GARY ABLETT AND DANE SWAN? cos by trade pending them at the same time ill have $1,454,700 to use. Who should I pick up peoples?

So basically I do want some cash left over in my salary cap e.g $150,00 or $200,000


    James · 17/04/2013 at 18:09

    Why would you trade out ablett and swan

    Ben · 17/04/2013 at 18:09

    Don't trade your gun players out, even if they've started poorly. If it's true that ablett is out, then you might want to trade him, however, you should look to get good consistent low-medium price players who you can trade in for another player later in the season.

      SammyC · 17/04/2013 at 18:20

      Well james the reason why I would trade ablett cos his right hand is bad shape meaning on the news last night he couldn't shake hands (he was shaking with his left hand) I saw the footage

        James · 17/04/2013 at 18:24

        your choice sammy

Saltysalts · 17/04/2013 at 18:16

Advice needed!!

What are people's thoughts on Hodge?

I have a feeling he will attract more attention and correspondingly suffer supercoach-wise now that he has proven himself as a game changer. On the other hand he is a proven premium in the past and is dirt cheap right now and on the bubble.

Is it worth me trading him in and being left with $9k, or stuff him and trade in crouch and bank the $343k for later?

    CHRIS · 17/04/2013 at 19:16


Tim · 17/04/2013 at 18:16

Hello community

How are my trades looking this week

Trade 1 Out: Varcoe In: Rowe

Trade 2 Out: Ryder In: Leuenberger

With a big $642,000 left in the kitty

Is this a good amount left in the bank

And do the trades sound good??

    Callum · 17/04/2013 at 19:17

    Very good idea!

Dan · 17/04/2013 at 18:32

Do you believe it is worth trading 6 times in 3 weeks (24 left) to get rid of problems like zorko and karnezis. Currently debating whether to make 1 or more trades even though it goes against my previous strategies. Thoughts??

    Tim · 17/04/2013 at 18:50

    Well in my opinion I think it is worth it but I think you should use the extra trades for getting the right rookies so you can earn more cash and then when that’s done you can start doing the corrective trades, but if you absolutely have to do a corrective trade by injury, suspension or just terrible form then do the corrective trade.

    Cheers, Tim

Tom · 17/04/2013 at 18:37

Who should i put captain and vice-captain out of:
cotchin(vs coll)
swan(vs rich)
watson(vs stk)
fyfe(vs haw)
moloney(vs nm)

Chris · 17/04/2013 at 19:10

Got one spot left in my midfield. Who do i pick and leave out? O'meara vs Viney.

    Tim · 17/04/2013 at 20:01

    I would pick O’meara because Melbourne might do some changes in the team because they are playing so bad so he might not play his usual posititon.
    So in my opinion I would choose O’meara over viney

      Chris · 17/04/2013 at 21:20


Gedransom · 17/04/2013 at 19:53

Trading Kanye Mitchell out and have around $630,000 to upgrade him.
Have all of the prime rookies already.
Any tips who to pick up?
Or do I wait a week and risk a loss to see what premiums drop further in price?
Was thinking of picking up Hodge at the bargain price of $459,000 which left $230,000 in the kitty.

    Tim · 17/04/2013 at 20:08

    I wouldn’t think about getting hodge just yet because you never know if he will do his knee again plus I think if u get a Kennedy he will get more consistent score than hogde.

    Cheers Tin

      Gedransom · 17/04/2013 at 20:24

      Already have Kennedy and Pendlebury.
      Was also thinking about Dustin Martin in that price range maybe going to crack through the glass roof consistently.

    footyinme · 17/04/2013 at 20:23

    Wait for swan to drop another 20k round 4, he will be sitting at 624k then after.
    Deledio has proved himself I think to be just as good as Cotchin.

Brad · 17/04/2013 at 20:35

Will Ablett play this weekend? If he doesn't what should us supercoachs do with Ablett?

    footyinme · 17/04/2013 at 20:47

    He should be playing read it in today's paper and if he doesn't he would only miss a game. Highly doubt it though

    @TheDishD · 18/04/2013 at 10:23

    "Despite being named as "test" on this weeks injury list, Gary Ablett is in full training today with the suns, showing no signs of discomfort. He will line up this week."
    i would bet that he plays and as footyinme says if he doesn't it would be only for a week.

      jockreynolds · 18/04/2013 at 13:41

      Hope he bloody plays lads 🙂

        Scott · 18/04/2013 at 19:14

        jock, if he does play do you think we should maybe give him a rest with the captains armband and give it to someone like pendlebury?

ollie · 18/04/2013 at 01:51

What trades should i make this week, my current team is

Backs:Gibbs,Heppell,Hartlett, Grimes, Goodes, Pittard,(Stevenson,terlich)

Mids: Kennedy, Shuey, Gaff, Fyfe, Moloney, Rich, Viney, Wines,(O'meara,Stevens)


Forwards: Rockcliff, Cox, Martin, Kennedy, Dwyer, Neade,(Macaffer, Karnesiz)

I was thinking of going Currie to Rowe and then trading down Karnesiz to either Maye or Sinclair.

    ollie · 18/04/2013 at 01:52

    and i have about 500,000 in the bank

    @TheDishD · 18/04/2013 at 10:20

    Currie >Rowe
    Karnesiz> Sinclair
    Maye i would hold off for one more week, he has only played one round, best to see how he is after another game, esp against Nth's

Darren · 18/04/2013 at 08:46

hi guys

what do u think about dustin martin?? is it too early jump on him.

    Eugene · 18/04/2013 at 12:43

    He looked mighty good against the Doggies last week but see how he goes against the Pies this week.
    However, with a B/E of only 35 this week, he is almost certainly gonna increase in price.

      jockreynolds · 18/04/2013 at 13:41

      Great stuff Eugene and Dazzling. Love that breakeven… I've gone Ryder > Dusty with Paddys suspension

Billy · 18/04/2013 at 09:03

Trading Patton for Sam Rowe to bank some cash and get another DP player in the mix

umming and arring about whether to upgrade one of the rookie mids (O'Meara, Dwyer, Viney etc) to Hodge. Is it too early to be upgrading these guys? Got the money to do it but may be wiser to hold the trade and the coin, plus Hodge has another game to play before a pay rise may come

decisions decisions!!!!

    Darren · 18/04/2013 at 09:36

    hold!!! its too early to upgrade. still dont trust hodgys knee

SupercoachSlayer101 · 18/04/2013 at 09:06

This is my side with 2 trades to make this week
Back- Gibbs, Goddard, Goodes, Hartlett, Duffield, Stevenson BENCH Pittard, Vlastuin.

Mid- Pendlebury, Ablett, Watson, Wines, Dangerfield, VIney, O'meara, Crouch BENCH Kommer and Stevens

Ruck- Jacobs, Blicavs BENCH currie, Witts

Fwd- Westhoff, Rockliff, Lewis, Dwyer, Neade, Zorko ( the Great) BENCH Macaffer and Rowe
SALARY CAP: $600,000
Im considering trading out dangerfield, and zorko for JPK and Kennedy (WCE) or WItts and Vlastuin for Hanley and Leuey
or any other trades u guys were thinking i should do
and which of those trades i should do first

    @TheDishD · 18/04/2013 at 10:18

    next week id go Duffield/Vlastin>hanely/hutchins

Billy · 18/04/2013 at 09:43

Trading Patton for Sam Rowe to bank some cash and get another DP player in the mix

thinking of upgrading one of the rookie mids (O'Meara, Dwyer, Viney etc) to Hodge. maybe should hold for a week and see how Hodge goes, also good to save a trade (i always blow too many at the start of the season)

decisions decisions!!!

    @TheDishD · 18/04/2013 at 10:14

    Just my .2, id hold on Hodge for one more week, the rookies will still go up in value.

Just a question Jocko,

On the dreamteam format i Have 2 trades this week i dont need to use, Have all the rookies. have my opponent covered easily

Is it worth trading out ablett for this week for hodge / then reversing them again next week, thus collecting money on hodge and dodging the ablett price drop

    Gday there Paddy.. great question. It always makes me nervous when you talk about these trade out and then back in antics.. however… if you look back at both past winners over the last 2 years both of them have pulled that Manouver. One with GAJ and one with Sandilands… not for me.. but there ya go

Spifflicator · 18/04/2013 at 13:40

My FWD line stinks like an old Jock Strap!!

Roughy, Pav, Rockliff, Wright, Neade, Rowe, Macaffer, Karnezis.

I also have Jenkins and Cox in the Ruck.

Which two spuds do I send to the chip factory? Roughy n Pav are in the gun, possibly for Dusty & Hoff, or I could bring Maric into the ruck and swing Cox fwd. and jump on Dusty.

Whatddya reckon?

SupercoachSlayer101 · 18/04/2013 at 14:44

Def- Gibbs, Goddard, Goodes, Hartlett, Duffield, Stevenson/ Pittard, Vlastuin

Mids- Pendles, GAJ, Watson, Wines, Dangerman, O'meara, Viney, Crouch/ Kommer, Stevens

Rucks- Jacobs, Blicavs/ Witts, Currie

Fwds- the Hoff, Rockliff, Lewis, Dwyer, Neade, Zorko the Magnificent/ Macaffer, Rowe

600,000 left in the bank

any suggested trades?

    Spifflicator · 18/04/2013 at 14:56

    Zorko >Cox/Buddy if you want to avoid bleeding cash, or maybe if both Vlastuin & Macaffer aren’t picked then you might need to look elsewhere for a cow (Sinclair/Hutchins/Terlich), but seriously you dont really need to do anything!

    I’m jealous!

Callum · 18/04/2013 at 15:43

Roughed to leunberrger or Martin? Or probably not but maybe this but Zorko instead of roughy?

    Eugene · 18/04/2013 at 16:16

    Definitely get Leuy in, most probably with Roughie.
    Zorko for Martin then?

cacketry · 18/04/2013 at 16:35

can only trade 1 out this week: Karnezis or Kane mitchell?

Adrian Campanaro · 18/04/2013 at 18:01

This is what I think I got trade this week.
K Lucas –> O Wines (mid)

Pittard –> Pearce Hanley
Pittard –> J Hutchins

I want to get Westoff in there as well.

At the moment I have 450K in the back to buy 2 premins next week after a huge rise.

Tom · 18/04/2013 at 18:36

Who should i put captain and vice-captain out of:
cotchin(vs coll)
swan(vs rich)
watson(vs stk)
fyfe(vs haw)
moloney(vs nm)

Anth · 18/04/2013 at 18:47

Is there anyone worth downgrading Varcoe too, considering I have all the major rookies already?

    Simma · 18/04/2013 at 19:55

    Sam Mayes for the lions playing his 2nd game this week and named on the field. Voss likes him

Scott · 18/04/2013 at 19:22

Who to TRADE:
D.Martin or Westhoff? Both will be going up in price this week

Also who to PLAY this week:
Pittard or Stevenson or Terlich?
O'Meara or Viney or Crouch?

Cheers lads

    Jonah · 19/04/2013 at 17:23

    None of them… I would get Bartell if you don't have him….
    and id play pittard and o'meara

Sully · 18/04/2013 at 19:27

Varcoe out for any foward who?

And got roughead hold or trade if Trade who for?

Callum · 18/04/2013 at 19:27

Hey Jocko,

If i trade out danger swing goddard,gibs or heppel in to the mids, should i bring in hutchins or hanley? Upside of bringing in hutchins: will rise more money and in 2 weeks i can bring back danger a much lower price. Upside of bringing in hanley: Have a very good premium down back and wont use a trade later on for danger( I could bring danger back in for someone else in my mid, maybe moloney once he get's to his highest price and still keep hanley?). Any Thoughts, love to hear them!

Jack · 18/04/2013 at 19:53

Thoughts on Bellchambers without Ryder there? Do I sit for a one week or trade in Goldy/Jacobs?

Michael · 18/04/2013 at 20:39

Anyone else having trouble accessing their Supercoach team? Can't get on laptop or thru SC App on my mobile – wtf?

Poison Ivy · 18/04/2013 at 20:43

Ok, need help! Really want to bring in Pendles, but should I? I currently have Ablett, Kennedy, Swan, Dangerfield and the usual rookies. Is there others I should be considering???? Money not a problem.

    Simma · 18/04/2013 at 21:00

    I've took Pendles from the start, without Ablett or Swan. Absolute gun but I reckon he might be a bit off the pace this week with a hip problem last game. Cotchin,Watson?

Adrian Campanaro · 18/04/2013 at 22:37


I have 450K in bank.

Gibbs Goddard Goodes Duffield Pittard Stevenson Bench: Terlich, Vlastuin
Kennedy Ablett Swan Murphy Dangerfield Viney O'Meara Lucas Bench: Crouch, Kane Mitchell
Jacobs Rowe Bench: Witts, Currie
Cox Bartel Kennedy Franklin Dwyer Neade Bench: Macaffer, Kerridge

I would love to get Hutchins, O Wines, Pearce Hanley or Westoff.
Or shall I spend the money on a premium.

Liam · 19/04/2013 at 12:19

Cloke or Westhoff?

    cashcows · 19/04/2013 at 16:30

    cloke for mine

cashcows · 19/04/2013 at 16:22

currie> rowe

leaves me with 25 trades and 450k in the bank

    cashcows · 19/04/2013 at 16:22

    Yes or no?

    sully · 19/04/2013 at 16:29

    looks good

sully · 19/04/2013 at 16:31

who to bring in bartel or buddy

    Tom · 19/04/2013 at 18:03

    bartel out of those two, however rockliff would be a really good pick as well.

Pete · 19/04/2013 at 17:12

Hey fellas, is Neade likely to get vested this week with Gray and Cassisi back?

NomNom · 19/04/2013 at 17:17

Crouch or Stevens on the field? Crouch named on the ball but Stevens has proven a lot more so far….. ?

Scott · 19/04/2013 at 18:02

Majak Daw or Sam Rowe on the field?

google business model ppt · 20/04/2013 at 00:51

Good day! I just want to give a huge thumbs up for the nice information you could have right here on this post.
I might be coming again to your weblog for extra soon.

@yvraith · 20/04/2013 at 09:01

My only problem is who to name emergency in my Forward Line, out of Dwyer, Neade & Zorko.
Currently I have Neade as the Emergency.

But any thoughts on this would be great.

jel · 20/04/2013 at 11:12

Woot, Selwood for Captain's loophole 🙂
Almost chose Kennedy, glad to have one finally fall my way

team changa · 21/04/2013 at 09:07

finance express albury · 23/04/2013 at 13:29
