Monday Poll – do we wield the AXE on Brett Goodes

Published by Jock on

Brett Goodes - GONE?

Brett Goodes has been one of the best defense rookies in the history of Supercoach and/or Dreamteam. 

He has appreciated by $203,100 and is now priced at $331,300 Supercoach dollars. Most have him penned in as somewhat of a keeper, to become a possible 5th defender in the back end of the year… but with suspension a very real possibility does all this change for you?

What will you do with Brett Goodes?

Say Brett Goodes gets 2 or 3 weeks... what do you do with him?

I think there is a bug with the voting, each time i go to vote it spits me to another page with your pic n the middle??


all good must have been me, it worked this time 🙂


happened to me as well


I got it too. I mean, I like Jock and all, but that pic of his mug popping up gave me a bit of a fright!


Keeping him Jock…if he is suspended for a long time I can trade out one of my rookie mids like Evans and sit Goodes on my midfield bench when upgrading Stevenson to Heath Shaw next week.

When Goodes returns I can see his value going beyond $400,000k


Having problems voting as well


keep in supercoach, trade in dream team


Will keep him this week. Will trade him out next week to a much cheaper rookie if he gets 3 weeks. His performance wasn't great this week. If he gets 2 weeks he comes back in round 8 and then WB will be playing GC so could get high numbers.


Good pick up regarding the Bulldogs schedule


bryce gibbs might miss with a hammy strain


The Blues have pretty much ruled him out for at least one week:

So plenty of pain in our defence especially with Pittard, Stevenson, Goodesy and Duffman all with question marks over them.

Also Hutchins and Docherty starting subs on the weekend and Vlastuin off to a quiet start.


It is time to start getting the backline settled by upgrading those players as their job security has become a little shaky, especially the Port boys who will both be gone for me by next week.


Goodesy was goneskies in my team as soon as trading resumed last night. Needed to harvest one cash cow in the middle anyway so he became the logical choice over Wines, O'meara and Koby.

Upgraded to Watson and am not looking back…


Who did you downgrade Goodes to? Docherty?


Used some of the war chest to go straight from Goodesy (who was in my midfield) to Watson who looks to have bottomed out at $611K.

It also gives me an extra C and VC option and quite timely with the Dons taking on GWS this weekend.


Watson will go berserk against the GWS this week 😉 Good trade.


what is more important? Either:

Get docherty in for stevenson and dwyer out for stevie J OR

Stevenson/Goodes out for Dixon ?


Dwyer > StevieJ
Stevenson JS is looking good with Trengove out for 6 with foot, Pittard might have GS again this week
Goodes could get 3 if he does he might be worth tradind out for Dixson


i might wait a couple rounds to pick the best defender, as i have hartlett goddard heppell and duffield. what do u think?


Might be best, even to wait till team line ups on Thurs, getting Stevie j would be the main, looks like you have good line-up in defence to sit for a week or two


thanks mate, thoughts on docherty?


Doc's looked very good for his short time on the field, cheap and could make lots of coin, only things to keep in mind, Lions have a tough draw for the next couple of weeks, good chance that Doc's could get the vest more often than not, but might be worth the risk as a short term cash cow.. just my .2


Whats the word on Dixon, I see he's killing it but can he keep it up? Hearing reports he's playing like a beast, haven't had the opportunity to watch any of his games but he keeps scoring and booting goals. Whats the low down….


Dixson is playing like a gun, form looks very soild, only thing is if he can stay injury free, he is a good option as he plays both Def and Fwd postions (def only in SC)


I'm not sold on any of the downgrade options on the bubble this week. Goodes would be a good target for an upgrade … to a premium midfielder. But surely it will all depend on what happens Thursday night with the Port defence and Luke Brown at Adelaide (who is in my team) and how much cover we need?

Cold Pies

i just think that this week there is higher priority cash cows to dispose of with gibbs out for a week as well…thinking pittard and stevenson on chopping block. Big question i have is given that everyones forward line is probably the weakest line do we fill that up first?


Gone for mine. I am downgrading because I don’t have the cash unless I downgrade on my Walker trade. If you’ve got the cash and don’t have a Hartlett or someone like that, could be a perfect chance to nab ’em.


Yeah gonna see how long he's gone for first – if its 2 then might hold as he will be champing at the bit upon return, and has proved as reliable a defender as any of the premiums


who should i pick heath scotland, hartlett, andrew walker or heat shaw

G unit



walker for sure




Don't think I can afford to have Gibbs and Goodes on bench with the hope of all those Port back rookies playing. Not many solid downgrade options either. So I've traded out Goodes and Blicavs for Hartlett and Steve J with some spare cash. Might be a mistake getting rid of Goodes this early but it does feel good getting 2 solid premiums for it.


Depends on your priorities for mine. If the long term strategy holds then I'll be hanging on to him. Have gone blicavs out for gawn, and viney out for paparone. Made 150k on the downgrades and set for another quick 100k+ pickup when they mature.

With wines and o'meara set to peak in the next 2 or 3 weeks this cash plus the war chest will see swan, ablest and murthy come in.

Meaning midfield will look like: swan, ablett, peddles, Watson, Sam Mitchell, cotchin, j Kennedy (Sydney), murphy, with basic bench cover with crouch and paparone.

Other lines to be the focus after that..


Will Duffield Play this round Jock?


Taking him out for Laird. After Adelaide and Sydney in the next two, Hawthorn have a dream run of GWS, GC and MELB. I'm using the Goodes -> Laird cash to upgrade Stevenson to Birchall and Neade/Dwyer to Buddy after the sydney game (this week's prices should be out of their system by then).

Andy Mac

Evening All. Love this forum and been lurking for while but now in trouble and after advice.

I have Gibbs, Goodes, Chapman, T Walker, Pittard, Crouch. Which 2 would you be looking at changing this week? Cheers in advance.


T Walker must go ACL confirmed. Suggest go to Roo or Buddy. I’d also consider Goodes to Docherty. Docherty has looked very capable


Mind you, Docherty started as a Sub last week, so buyer beware. Depends on whether you're intending to use him on the bench as cover, or actually going to start on the field.


If you can hold on Walker, Buddy's price will be tasty in a couple.


So Goodes is off 2 games.
Trade or hold?


Yes Goodes gets two. Teen Wolf and Glass also rubbed out for a week.

I'm going wooshka myself but I can certainly understand other coaches benching him until he returns for Rd 8.


Looking to trade Tom Hawkins out as he hasn't been performing.. Andrew walker or zorko?mand do you reckon the trade is worth it r should I hold onto him?


tom Hawkins is struggling to score this year, agreed. and it looks like that will continue as harry taylor is stealing his glory and is in great form.

personally I would go with zorko as he has the potential to attract higher scores e then walker.. one immediate benefit of walker is carlton have some easier games coming up like gcs.

both are in good form, so tough yes but zorko for mine


Not sure who to go with out of d. martin or stevie J… Im leaning towards stevie j because his 160 will sit in his 3-week average for a bit, plus the easy draw, AND the extra midfield time, and the great round 12 bye, but I think he has already reached his peak and his 160 is most likely a one-off, and it doesn't seem clear what his future will hold. martin however has plenty of room for improvement, and is looking in fantastic form with an easier draw than geelong. im kind of torn, so any help would be appreciated 🙂


Yes if I was starting afresh I would probably go Stevie J even though I have Dusty in my own team. As much as I would like to get in Stevie J myself I have other trade priorities including Jobe this week and probably Daisy and Priddo in the coming weeks.

But don't think you can go wrong with Stevie J there.


okay then I'm going with Stevie J here, thanks heaps mate!!


whacked in dean terlich for goodes and traded ollie wines for trent cotchin


ur cashing in wines way too early


I am turning Wines into Watson if all my port rookies are ok down back. I don't think its to early to cash in Wines.


I have kept Goodes and actually got rid of Gibbs, my defence is Birchall, Hartlett, Heppell, Goddard, Docherty and Stevenson this week with Goodes and Pittard on bench.

Traded Up then Traded down

Gibbs > Docherty and Jolly > Hartlett

I feel bad for a lot of people who have Walker, Jacobs, Gibbs, Fyfe and Goodes in the same team as I did a month ago.


What about viney-hartlett rioli-kerridge left with 74'100 only two premiums in forward line PLEASE HELP !!!!!


I have Fyfe, Goodes, Pittard, Duffield, Luke Brown and Gibbs. FMSC FMSC FMSC


Definitely keep Goodes as long as you have other players to take his place. He has a break even of -16.


Not sure what to do with Goodes. Really want to trade him as I have Gibbs also who will be sitting on my bench with Terlich taking over for a couple of weeks. My other emergency defender is Frost who will most likely not play unless he is a late inclusion. This will give me a doughnut in my defence which I dont want. I am thinking of downgrading Goodes, but I have plenty of cash to upgrade him to any premium in the defence possible. What should I do?


Depends who you've got in your side. Goodes to Shaw is a pretty good option…


I'm in a similiar predicament – I've opted to keep Gibbs (1 week out – prem back DPP – good run this year) and upgrade goodes to Dixon – I've got hutchins (sub GC last rnd) Pittard (out) Stevenson (in because pittard dropped) and Brown (crows – poor form, possible sub.) So I'm trading out Brown (maybe hutchins) for terlich. Those 2 have the highest BE and Terlich is in -BE. I'm banking on both port players getting in. Also I'm going to trade goodes back in later.

I do have 2nd thoughts when considering gibss BE (130) but I've decided I'd just trade him in again so I'm saving the trade. And that's the thing really – save trades on 1-2 out week premiums and look cover through upgrades. In theory it will produce a stronger team in the long run.

Cold Pies

Hmmm….maybe ill go gibbs+goodes=hanley+hartlett


I swung Goodes into my mid a few weeks back, so won't cop a donut with gibbs and potentially pittard to miss. My priority this week will be to get rid of hutchins. Sub last week has given him a BE of 42. Need to get him out. Also thinking blitz to gawn


Downgrading him.. and upgrading moloney to a gazza. But who to downgrade too? Frost, laird and docherty all options but which one?


laird or docherty i reckon

Tommy Gun

Frost may be looking at more games in the near future with Toovey doing an ACL


I'm going with Laird. Docherty looks like a sub choice over Brisbane's horror 8-week run.


Currently averaging more than some premiums and has better JS then any other back rookie. The rest should do him good and then he's got Gold Coast, the Saints and Port Adelaide before the bye rounds. Should ton up for those three and be almost a straight swap to a premium. Not sure why everyone's trading.


lovely stuff Mac


Current trades:
DangerTo docherty
MacafferTo Watson
23 trades left after these
$226k in the war chest after these trades.
How do they sound? Decided to keep jacobs, hell come good and im not a big fan of gawn and he plays for the dees.


Sorry 21 trades left after those trades not 23


In other words Danger to Watson and Macaffer to Docherty. The first one is sideways but the second is ok.


I would really love to keep Goodes but I have:

Gibbs/Goodes/Pittard/Stevenson/Duffield/Priddis/Fyfe/Crouch in my team at the moment so surely one of them has to go…


If Goodes was anymore than 2 weeks I may have made the trade, but I'll sit tight. I know that Winderlich is risky with injuries but at $246k it's bloody tempting to trade him in for Chris Mayne who is playing well but averaging less than I hoped for. Makes a nice $190k. I'm a dons fan and I have little doubt that there will be more tons to come if he stays on the park.

Or is it better to stick with Mayne or even make a premium upgrade for under $100k? Thoughts?


Anyone else have Gibbs goodes duffield pittard all in their backlines last week… I did. #struggling


What is the community's thoughts on Harry Taylor from the cats? Good upgrade target? Scored well last 3 weeks but will he keep it up? Atm tossing up between him, Shaw and Dixon.

Have gibbs,goddard and Birch. Not sold on Hartlett.


I'm in the same boat and really considering Taylor. He's been shifted forward a bit at times this season and has dominated, but will he keep up those scores if forward time dries up? I would have said Hartlett last week ( glad I made that trade) but now he's getting pricey for a non- proven scorer. Shaw is looking like the safe bet, but would love to hear some more thoughts on Taylor! If you want a consistent scorer, Hibberd will score 90-110 most weeks in my opinion.


Rivers out for a while so I think Harry will be down back predominantly while he's out.


Thinking Viney out, and grabbing Gray.
Scored 73 coming on with the vest, on the bubble, could be a smokey!

Also looking to loose Hutchins, trade up or down??

Will need to hide Goodes, Gibbs & Fyfe somewhere.


His "bubble" you speak of is a BE of 90. Even if he scores 100 he'll barely go up. I'll wait another week I reckon


Hmm, good point.
May be best to wait.


who is the best option out of birchall, shaw, hartlett, or hanley?


i like Shaw


Goodes to docherty
Dwyer to Watson




Keeping him. Have a paper thin backline I need to bulk up with prems. And his b/e is deliciously low. To slaughter by R8.


Out of the three port defenders (pittard, Stevenson and Heath) which one should I be getting out first? I’m thinking of cutting Stevenson, pittard then Heath in that order, thoughts?


Trading Goodes right now is crazy talk IMHO. He has a BE of 8 with an average of 94. It's only 2 weeks and you have emergencies….. Use them


The thing is that we don't have emergencies. Pittard and Stevenson aren't consistently playing anymore genius.


"Aren't consistently playing" yeah, righto. Pittard has missed 1 with GS, Stevenson hasn't missed a game. Genius…


Got 26 trades left should I downgrade Terlich to Docherty and use extra cash to upgrade Fyfe to Watson I need a answer!!! And what is wrong with Pitaard ready for next week?


i have fyfe and i aint choppin him, i have terlich and i aint choppin this early either. dunno about pittard, im thinkin about choppin him for docherty but im gonna wait til the teams are out rather than stress all week, i got gibbs to. lotta people got problems this week


Cox for martin? maybe even jacobs for martin?


Jacobs for Martin. Cox is too good.


Is it worth getting Watson this week as he faces GWS. Got enough money to upgrade him from Fyfe?




No way Osh thats a classic sideways kneejerk trade. Fyfe has the capacity to score almost the same as ol Watto.
Fyfe 1 week – bench him mate and get Watto with a down/upgrade with your rookies when they are ready.


Cheers Jaso clearly noted. Only my second year playing SC!!!


Hey guys trade out Moloney for Zharkarakis


I trades goodes for docherty and mullet out for josh Kennedy (syd) * was about $5000 short to get Watson
