Yeah Jocky! Love your form!


what are yr thoughts on getting rid of westhoff for andrew walker


I was thinking dwyer for walker and wines for cornes or steve j thoughts on that??? Or stick with one premium and bring in another rookie??


Luke Brown and Koby Stevens out for Dale Thomas and Colquhon?


This week, i've done Wines to Vlastuin, and then Dwyer to Daisy.

Leaves me with 160k, next week, can cash in on Matty Jones for Priddis, then downgrade Stevenson or Neade to Staker or the likes. The next week i can then bring in a premo for whichever of the two i didnt trade. At that stage, i will only have 3 rooks on field, Stevenson or Neade, Goodes, and O'meara. The latter two i consider near-keepers.

Sound like a plan?

I'm stumped with who to trade out this week though. Matt Jones with a score of 70 will increase 20k, Wines with a score of 84 will go up 8k. Jones plays GC this week though, so the question is, do i keep wines to use on field this week, and end up likely 12k worse off, or do i flip him and put jones on field?

Thanks peeps

ps. Not trading Stevenson this week, as it will cause a probable doughnut, as i have Frost, Goodes and Saunders (likely to be emergency) on the backline bench.


Thanks Jock! You're a champion


Totally agree…Dixon and Gibbs out this week swayed me to downgrade K.Stevens to Vlast and Neade to Thomas, so I can swing Vlast into the defence to cover a doughnut. Ollie to a gun next week : )


How does a Koby Stevens to Ben Kennedy and Oliver Wines to Patrick Dangerfield sound?

I still have both Heath and Stevenson in the backline but have Fyfe, Crouch in the midfield so if I don't trade Stevens I'll have a zero scoring player in the middle.



Good stuff James. very similar to my trades for the week. Looks like both Stevens and Wines are near maxed out, so getting Dangerfield and another guy to generate cash looks like a winner.


What should I do with Heath and Stevenson? Any rookie backline player coming up next week?

I really want to get either Dale Thomas or Buddy Franklin.


get pittard out with no salary cap space so need to bring in vlaustin or clarke
or do i bring out gibbs for shaw?


Selling Goodes for Vlaustin and then bringing in the "Raging Bull" Patrick Dangerfield for Koby Stevens. Next week, selling Rowe/Dwyer and trading Wines for Selwood/Cotching/Watson type.

I've taken a bit of advice from Jock on this video, I think I'm better off spending my $ and trades on upgrading rookies than fixing premium players (in my case Sam Jacobs), who aren't firing at the moment. Seems like the best course of action.


I need rowe to be in the fwd line when i trade him out, so the only way i can do that without having a premium on the bench is trade jacobs for hannath. I will then use the money to go dwyer to thomas with still 200k left, which i will use to probably downgrade heath and upgrade one of my fwd rookies to a premium in the middle, maybe priddis. So i need to get rid of jacobs for that reason, but even if i didn't have the rowe problem i would still trade because he is going to down at this rate to sub 400k, so it is better to downgrade now, even if it means a chance to downgrade rookie instead.


thoughts on dwyer to mitchell and jenkins to thomas?


Whos a better person to trade in for Cotchin?
Stevie J or Dangerfield? i cant decide


i'd go for danger


Why are you trading Cotchin? Dump him on the bench, surely you have enough cover. And then the next round he will repay you with solid scores (see 144 against Freo at Patersons)


Agree Jake…..Just bench him! Talk about wasting a trade!


Who to put on the field out of Ben Kennedy or Brent Macaffer?


get pittard out with no salary cap space so need to bring in vlaustin or clarke
or do i bring out gibbs for shaw?


Would you trade Stevenson or Heath?


heath has a higher break even


Tricky one, I have the same problem looking to trade one of them for Vlastuin. I think Stevenson has more point scoring potential but Heath seems to have better js. I am leaning towards trading Heath due to his higher be


Thanks Gilly. I agree and also trading in Vlastuin


Hey community,
Im really confused on who to get, Laird or Vlas? I know laird is on extended sunday bench, but if he retains his spot tmr, do i go with rory or Tigger?


i reckon vlas


word is cotchin is out with a knee. Anybody in the community know how bad the injury is?


Arghh selection headaches.

Before trading I have 3 non players in the DEF and MIDS being

Pittard, Gibbs, Goodes
Cotchin, Fyfe, Crouch

Thinking Pittard to Vlastuin and Crouch to Daisy, However, how long is cotch rumored to be out for??

If crouch comes back next week, he could go up another 100k in a few weeks, where as if cotch is out for 3-4, he is not doing anything for me.

Don't want to sideways trade but slightly tempted…


Thoughts on trading in Steve Johnson or Dangerfield? I can do both easily. Which do you guys think is a better trade in?


Dollar for dollar probably Danger.


Whats the go on Ryder????? he didn't get selected 🙁 🙁 🙁 after winning the game for Essendon in his last game!! i have held him for this long and now i have to wait??? James Hird you peptide induced twat!


Calm down! essendon have a surplus of talls, none can be dropped


Hird can lick my surplus haha


He'll play.


Jock my lad, click on the option down the bottom that says keep the current colour scheme and don't show me this message again if you want that bloody pop up to go away 😉


Wayno still takin' the mickey, funny as hell

Don't do it

Surely gotta keep your powder dry this week unless you really need to trade. Much juicier options than Lazy Thomas over the next week. Don't push the trade button unless you really have to. That's my advice to all SC'ers!


Spot on don't do it! Much better options next week. I have 27 trades left and sitting 66th overall. Only the insane will trade this week….or the teams that have to as have too many donuts!


Only trading this week because my backline has been decimated. Getting in another premium a bit earlier than planned, that's all.


Hey guys I have simple question … A, Walker or J, Kieren ?!

Not a simple answer ? .. or si it?!

Cheers for your help


J, Kieren? that's just sad.


Thanks for anothe rgreat video Jock. Love you and love the help form the community.

Taken your advice on premiums and I'm leaving Jacobs alone (for now).

Koby out. Dwyer in to the mids.Daisy into the Fwds
A McGrath out for J Clarke (Bris) on the bubble.




Is J Carke's JS is good enough to bring him in?…


Good point and something I need to think about (although he was just going to sit on the bench.

I may look at Vlaustin


Thinking this week is setup for a structural mixup. Have no links yet in team for mid fwd ruc fwd etc. therefore cot chin to a walker. Rowe and cox swap to trade Rowe to Hannath. Next week majak to roughy. Thoughts?

I'm tryin

Any opinion on my two trades this week, only did them for cash generation and a donut in me midfield, went cotch & wines out for daisy & k Simpson, is this fair considering both in’s are at rock bottom & wines has nealy peaked. ( disappointed to get rid of cotch, but have to fill a side right?)


Do you have anyone on the bench to cover Cotch?!


Rowe for hannath
Stevenson for clarke




Great video Jock, do you think Crozier will be getting the vest this week against Collingwood?


should I get rid of westhoff or stick with him?


I'd be tempted to cash him out as Port's draw gets a lot tougher over the next few weeks with the Blues and Cats to come. So many great players you could trade him out for at his current price before it continues to dip.

Nonetheless you still have to weigh up whether using a trade on him is worth it compared to upgrading a rookie to a premium instead. Perhaps you can do both if you have the war chest available.

I'm tryin

Na lookin at a donut if I hold cotch fife or crouch, but crouch doesn’t leave me any cash


Who is in your other lines for swings?
Maybe pull the trigger on crouch, then move blicavs or a backman in the middle then bring in hannath or vlastuin?


although vlasty is a mid anyway…so straight swap if you dont already have him


hayden crozier vs aaron black?
all advice will be graetly appreciated!


There hasn't been much talk about Luke Hodge this week and a helluva lot about Dale Thomas. Hodgey has a BE of 63 and a projected price rise of $17K, whilst Daisy admittedly has a lower BE but also a lower projected price rise. I know that Daisy is at his absolute lowest price, and I know the projections are just that, projections, but my gut tells me that Hodgey is a better pick this week. Additionally, Hawthorn has the three bye teams in a row after this round.

…but maybe it's because Hodgey was a great pickup three weeks ago, and everyone else already jumped on.


thoughts on the young jackson thurlow at the cats as a downgrade from pittard for bench cover? said to be very promising. What do you think Jock?


Hey jockstrap, just noticed Charlie Dixon copped the bandaid on SC, whats happening there? thought he was good to go, any insight?


C'mon a bit of respect for the great man. To answer your question he just wasn't able to overcome that ankle injury to the Suns liking in time for Sunday's game. Strong chance to play next week I reckon so I wouldn't be trading him.

Looks like the Big Mummy will also miss this weekend according to the late mail.

Cerkez Ismet

LOL Brad Johnson calls him Jockstrap!!


Not cool! Gibbs and Dixon on the bench. Wondering if it's worth trading one now…


I would definitely hang on to Dixon as I'm reasonably confident that ankle will come right by next week. He was tentatively named this week so it can't have been too bad.

Gibbs is a tougher one. Once I heard he had hammy issues I traded him out straight away last week for Shaw for the same money. If he was guaranteed to be back next week I would keep him but who would know?? Ah the little joys of Supercoach!


Yeah I feel like I should hang on to both! I reckon they'll both be back next week. Got cover, so no doughnuts at least. One of those weeks where all you can do is pray that the rookies go berzerk!


I had to trade Gibbs, Goodes, or Dixon to cover a doughnut. I originally chose Goodes, but changed my mind to Gibbs for the same reasons as SCaddict above.


who to play on field out of kerridge, neade and dwyer?


neade for me


who's the better buy? crozier or black?


two options here
option 1: out pittard in vlaustin
option 2: out gibbs in shaw

thought would be appreciated thanks community


option 1 would give me cash for priddis next week so i'm leaning to option 1


I would agree with that. Option 1 should earn enough cash to offset (and more) how much Shaw will go up.


Is it better to trade rowe for thomas or dwyer to thomas? Dwyer has a small chance in goign up but a decent chance in going down, but rowe is going no where. Need some help here.


I'd say Rowe because he's not playing this week and he's unlikely to play again in the short term especially since he didn't get recalled due to Waite's absence as well as Kreuzer being back.


If I was brave enough to trade out Dixon or Gibbs for Shaw, who goes?


who should i trade in rory laird or justin clarke?


Will there be time to change the vice captain from Swallow to Pendles if need be?
