Have you been Birchalled? Team talk round 13

Published by Jock on

Your Supercoach Mob

Birchall subbed off during the 3rd quarter with a crook knee without even reaching 40. Not a nice way to kick off the round community!

Take something from the fact that if you have him his break even was only 34ish so his price will still rise a bit. That’ll be a good thing if it turns out he has a long termer and we need to use that cash to go sideways to some other defender. Defense is a bastard of a thing this season make no mistake about that.

Enough of that rot – how is your team looking? It’s the last of the bye weekends – thank buggery for that. With most of the heavy Supercoach and Dreamteam hitters out it could be a week where captain selection is the difference between winning and losing.

You on fire this week.. or in struggle street?


SMH · 21/06/2013 at 22:22

I want to shoot myself for ever buying Birchall. He has been nothing but useless since I got him and has lost me over 160k… oh well, i guess thats fantasy footy for ya!

Other then that, big Coxy and Kennedy have been absolute stars!

@OssieTerron · 21/06/2013 at 22:27

Birchall is dead to me… Getting on the Scotland train… Wooowoo

    footyinme · 21/06/2013 at 22:51

    Calm down

    Indris · 24/06/2013 at 03:30

    Get scotland at your own peril!! He is too old and not much better than the Birch!!

Remy · 21/06/2013 at 22:30

Oh well

@emhoy · 21/06/2013 at 22:32

He was injured I got him last week so will not right him off yetHe was injured I got him last week so will not right him off yet

Dave Ruddick · 21/06/2013 at 22:35

Got him in this week and he was super cheap…not at all worried…it looked like a minor injury. He will still average 95-100 for the rest of the season.. For $ 415,800 he was a bargain.

    Boozer · 23/06/2013 at 22:58

    I fell for the juicy BE traded him in for instant burn!

footyinme · 21/06/2013 at 22:47

Not worried mate a tick over 25 percent of people have him and I feel that there will be more chaos to come in any direction.
He did score 40 for bugger all disposals so that's a positive for me, plus injury looks minor.

Sully · 21/06/2013 at 22:53

Very disappointed about birch just brought him in this week!

nic Nat only got 114 so who should I put the big C on out of:
or stevie J

    footyinme · 21/06/2013 at 23:06


Josh · 21/06/2013 at 22:56

I was tossing up between Birchall and Hanley, I went with my gut feeling and chose Hanley. My mobs doing well so far this week with Kennedy (125), Cox (115), Naitanui (114) and Franklin (97)

jake · 21/06/2013 at 22:59

jock ive got the VC on Natinui at he moment, should i use his 115 or keep C on Fyfe

    Azza · 21/06/2013 at 23:05

    I've got the same debacle only might go with Lids as captain. Not sure coz 115 is solid.

    Nolan · 21/06/2013 at 23:16

    Got the same issue. Gonna chuck the C on Deledio tomorrow me thinks 🙂

SCaddict · 21/06/2013 at 23:01

Yes with the Birch red vest an already nasty weekend just got a little nastier. Can feel quite a slide in the rankings coming up. The Thurlow omission did me no favours either.

willeefto · 21/06/2013 at 23:05

438 with 4 completed. Pretty happy thus far. I had J.J.Kennedy, Naitanui, Priddis and Buddy.

Westy · 21/06/2013 at 23:06

I've gone the Captain loophole. Had the big V on Roughead for an easy 145 points. Docherty onto the pine and Gibbs onto the field with the C.
So far this weekend, Hodge 102, Roughy (290), NicNat 102, Priddis 114, Cox 115, Kennedy 125 & Franklin 97. All topped the ton except the new member for GWS.

    Westy · 22/06/2013 at 10:33

    Oops I mixed up NicNat and Priddis. It must have been the hair!

      Westy · 22/06/2013 at 10:35

      800 points (945 points with captains loophole) for 7 completed. Burchall's poor week should augur well for picking him up in a couple of week's time.

    rob · 23/06/2013 at 13:36

    well done with the roughy C score! i was dissapointed with jpk for mine!

Azza · 21/06/2013 at 23:09

My teams gone well so far, NicNat, Cox, Roughy, JJK, Buddy to help get me to 636.

Unfortunately brought in Birchall this week for Terlich….ruins the above but oh we'll, at least he won't leak money

Sully · 21/06/2013 at 23:09

738 with 7 players used they were: birch, roughead, buddy, Kennedy, nic Nat, cox, priddis

Nick Kongos · 21/06/2013 at 23:30

Picked up birchall 5mins before start for thurlow……at least he will make me $40!!!!!

tony · 21/06/2013 at 23:35

Bloody hell Birchall.. costing me my game!!
anyways fellas who do I whack the big C on this week
cotchin selwood or nat fyfe of the fremantle footy club?

Liam · 21/06/2013 at 23:42

Good start to the round 553 from 5 with Kennedy, Cox, Priddis, Nic Nat and Buddy. Just want to know your thoughts on Nick Riewoldt captain this week. Himself and Nick Dal's 250th and playing Melbourne so hoping for maybe 120+. Other options would be to take Nic Nat's score of 114 as he is VC or could go J.Selwood, Fyfe, A.Swallow or Mundy?

Saltysalts · 22/06/2013 at 00:15

Great start 601 from 5

Question for you all: do i burn a trade (k mitchell -> hrovat) for the sake of having 15 on the park? Selections have been very unkind to me!

My goal is rank. I would still have 11 trades left after this. Currently ranked 413 thanks to you all out there in the JR community!

woodman · 22/06/2013 at 00:22

Just traded Birchall in this week. Oh well thats the way it goes. Hopefully he will bounce back soon.

Fabian · 22/06/2013 at 00:31

VC on Kennedy. First time I've actually made a decent selection. Lucky I have 19 onfield, so hopefully Birch's score is the lowest.

Papaneri · 22/06/2013 at 00:38

Got birch this week & to top it off I have hurn….what a shocking start to this terrible week.

I have Rowe captain & josh Kennedy emergency. I will get jk's score yes?

    Tyler · 22/06/2013 at 03:25

    If you leave Rowe as captain yes you will get Kennedys score unless you put the captain onto another player who is playing this week.

dela · 22/06/2013 at 01:11

Birch very disappointing. On a completely unrelated note, if you had to chose b/w 2 rucks big willy minson or todd goldstein?

    Saltysalts · 22/06/2013 at 08:44

    Goldstein for mine. Solidified himself this year. Not sure whether Minson will keep on cranking out tons in the second half, probably will though. I would just say goldstein is a more reliable pick.

Rick · 22/06/2013 at 06:22

I had 3 backmen playing this and 2 were subbed with injury last night, Birchall and Hurn. Great start

Daniel · 22/06/2013 at 08:39

Had Kennedy, priddis, cox, and then there was birchall letting the team down! Going to put vc and jpk but not sure whether to put c on cotchin or Barlow, but NM have multiple taggers. Advice be great thanks

cam · 22/06/2013 at 10:26

who is a good forward less then 420k???

    footyinme · 22/06/2013 at 13:29

    Jack Riewoldt

Jordan · 22/06/2013 at 12:50

Birchall is killing me mate! Last week getting 100 was a first in a while.

Using the captain loophole on tommy Mitchell. That could get me over the line this week if he has a huge game.

Super_Freak · 22/06/2013 at 14:56

Could be in for a good one this week. 614pts from 5 played last night. Go Roughy. Have O'keefe, JPK, mitchell, and Hartlett playin atm. All doing well except Hartlett.

Glad I traded in Ellis instead of Birchall yesterday, but that could come back to bite me over the coming weeks. Birchall did look OK last night until he was subbed.

footyinme · 22/06/2013 at 14:59

Have VC on JPK will I get his score as Captain if I leave the C on say Ablett who I have on the field. I ask this because I have not done this loop hole in the bye round yet.
I also have 18 players who will score for this round.

    Chumpy · 22/06/2013 at 15:58

    yep that will work

Osh · 22/06/2013 at 20:41

Who's a better option to put the C on:
Barlow or Fyfe or Stevie J???

    NICK · 22/06/2013 at 20:51

    stevie j put the c on but that's a hard one both teams playing weak teams

NICK · 22/06/2013 at 20:50

so far been screwed by birchel and also been conned into getting brett dellido by jock of all people who said he would be the right person to get should stuck with my gut and went with joel selwood he is a better player then dildo and can get a tag away oh well next wekk get rid of brett bring in selwood as brett cant handle a tag man why do I listen to jock

    FrontPocket · 22/06/2013 at 22:01

    Deledio is a star, what's your deal?

      NICK · 22/06/2013 at 22:29

      my deal is Richmond players are no good only Richmond supporters will think they are good and selwood flogs deledio all over the field he is the package sorry but dids I should have went with my gut I never ever pick dids becoase he is no good and next sesson no Richmond players like cocth and dids come on they cant score over 100 its been weeks since cotch scored 100 and get rid of vlastin he is running out of gas

        Tyler · 23/06/2013 at 04:18

        Wow , you sound like a 5 year old ,
        I would put my faith on Deledio over Joel , Joel has been average this season and I have both of them , Deledio has been the better player overall .Look at the stas
        Deledio : Avg : 113 , top 3 biggest scores : 163 , 141 , 140
        Selwood : Avg : 107 , top 3 biggest scores : 163 , 140, 147
        Deledio has been more consistent . If you're having a sook by not backing your judgement , why didn't you just do it ? Jock gives advice , he doesn't know how the players will score exactly so quit sooking .
        You should've done the loop and put the vice on Deledio and put the C on a player with the bye so you could put the C on Selwood after Deledios match .
        Deledio had 25 touches tonight mate , Picken had just 6 , I don't know what you expect but that's a pretty good night at the office for someone who was being tagged .
        And haha , So Vlastuin scores one bad game and we should trade him ? so every player who scores well then has an off game we should get rid off ? joke of a bloke dude.

          throttlefinger · 23/06/2013 at 04:39

          Will say that Vlaustin may be ripe for an uptrade. Way he played today and they way Newman and Houli went at it, may be good to trade as his value will start to go down. Would be surprised if he hit a ton more than twice the rest of the season.

      Super_Freak · 23/06/2013 at 15:45

      Have to agree with you FP. I traded in Lids, Dusty & Ellis this week. I'm confident they will keep performing all year. This week I reckon they fell victim to the trend this year of players scoring lower against poorer sides. Most players seem to lift and score more points against better sides.

        Super_Freak · 23/06/2013 at 15:46

        I just wish I had put the C on Griffen. The guy is a machine!

NICK · 22/06/2013 at 21:07

still cant belive I got delido instead of joel selwood listeing to jock again instead of going with mmy gut dids cant handle a tag selwood can oh well going have anther bad score thos wekk just have to hope cotch and dids turn it on the second half

    FrontPocket · 22/06/2013 at 22:05


      Balls · 22/06/2013 at 23:15


    throttlefinger · 23/06/2013 at 04:38

    I got Lids as well. Only thing I will say to that is today the Tiges showed they don't need Lids to score big to win. It was a group win. Think that may loosen things up for him. He's too much of a baller. He'll be back with 120+ next week.

Chumpy · 22/06/2013 at 21:35

Vlastuin, Goodes, and Old Man Cornesy letting me down today for sure to add to the Birchall pain

Rocksta · 22/06/2013 at 23:41

Birchall and Hartlett are killing me, week in week out. Also, I brought Cotchin in this week for Vlastuin. Is that a good trade or a bad Upgrade? Cotchin is down on form and really struggling, but Vlastuin has definitely peaked ( BE this week of over 70 and he scored 31). I also traded Crouch for Hrovat. I watched the game tonight and quite frankly Hrovat simply will not be played if he plays with that lack of intensity. He's only on my bench but from what I saw tonight, he's a long way off it.

Rocksta · 22/06/2013 at 23:53

If they had a medal for the biggest 'Burn Man', and the season ended after this Round, whom would win it: Birchall, Hartlett, Sauce, or Zorko ? ( or other?)

    throttlefinger · 23/06/2013 at 04:35

    Hmmm. I'd go Zorko followed closely by Brichall. Zorko hasn't underperformed most of the season. Couple bright spots. Birchall shined bright early then got tagged and struggled. Started to show form last week. Hope injury is minor.

    And I still have Zorko…Jock keeps convincing me to keep.

    FrontPocket · 24/06/2013 at 12:38

    … and I've got all four of them. Hurrah for me!

Pete · 23/06/2013 at 09:13

Birchall is dead to me, burn man of the year for sure!

John · 23/06/2013 at 10:07

This was the round I planned to have a shocker and my predicted score of 1745 is pretty much on the money. Not concerned though as is the last bye round and from next week my team will almost be set with all my best players coming back in.

Liam Fitzgerald · 23/06/2013 at 10:30

Good trade if Cotchin was who you wanted. Vlastuin time to go. Only reason I held ontohim was to trade out sheuy as worried about bigger money loss with him. Pity about cotchin’s score. Ah well ablett is back next week. And with couch to hrovst its about the money to get in a premium so after this week shouldn’t be a concern

    Liam Fitzgerald · 23/06/2013 at 10:32

    This was a reply to ro chairs rocksta. Sorry phone typing messed me around

Mr_Consistent · 23/06/2013 at 10:52

I just hope that all you Birchall Baggers are aware that he was hurt in the first 10 minutes of the game and was unable to run around the paddock with his usual zest. He was labelled by Alastair Clarkson in the press conference after as "Courageous" as he stayed on long enough so the sub could have a bigger effect on the game.

    pie.of.god · 23/06/2013 at 12:31

    agreed….too harsh. Birch to bounce back next week against brassy with another 118!!!!!! p.s. i picked him up @ round 6 or something when he peaked and lost teh 160'000 too, he'll be sweet

Richard · 23/06/2013 at 11:36

Barlow or Fyfe for captain? Or do I keep Nic Nat's 114 VC score?

    SCaddict · 23/06/2013 at 12:13

    It's been a weekend of low scores (unless you have Roughy or Griffen) so I would probably bank Nic Nat's 114. I discarded JPK's score of 107 as VC and went with Lids as C but that obviously backfired.

    Having the bye round from hell as I kind of expected after dominating in the first two byes. Just two more games and these blasted byes are behind us!

      footyinme · 23/06/2013 at 16:40

      Yeah I reckon 1800 this week would be a good score for those who might score over 1900 this week followed by strong scores the 2 weeks before will be loving it.

Anton · 23/06/2013 at 12:06

All people crying about "JOCK THE LEGENDS" advice should give themselves a uppercut. It's advice grow some balls and learn to make a couple of decisions yourselves and have a bit of respect for the great one.

    Super_Freak · 23/06/2013 at 15:51

    Nicely said Anton. Jock and this great community are here for a bit of advice and a lot of laughs. Keep up the good work Jock & Co.

tony · 23/06/2013 at 12:43

Guys really need some advice, had Cotchin as vice but only the 86,
Who would you put captain out of Goldstein, Selwood or Fyfe?

    footyinme · 23/06/2013 at 14:59


footyinme · 23/06/2013 at 14:56

No Mundy geez
Don't have him though ouch!

    Kimbo · 23/06/2013 at 15:22

    Yeah Jock must be in freefall in the rankings again. In addition to Mundy think he also has Hanners, McEvoy, Birchall, Webster and Vlastuin who all stunk it up this weekend.

      footyinme · 23/06/2013 at 16:38

      We're gonna here about I reckon haha

        footyinme · 23/06/2013 at 16:38

        I'm not doing that well myself though projected for 1730

      Balls · 24/06/2013 at 02:42

      Webster's a born skunk, I'll give him a couple of more weeks.

footyinme · 23/06/2013 at 19:54

1745 for me damn it!
Had Lids as C oh well, would have only topped around 1800 this week anyway.

@The_IronSock · 23/06/2013 at 19:56

No, but I did get Rockliffed.

Joshau · 23/06/2013 at 20:18

I got Birchalled and Vlastuined. But I expected it from Vlaustin…considering that, I'm actually pretty happy with my 1691 from 17! (only going for a league win of course)

@Jacko2128 · 23/06/2013 at 20:29

1743 from 17 not too shabby yeah? Mundy killed me

Chumpy · 23/06/2013 at 20:33

Managed to scrape 1843 thanks to a good game from the Fyfe, as well as putting the C on Joel Selwood today paid off

Osh · 23/06/2013 at 22:24

Got Tom Mitchell and O' Meara. Who should I put as my 8th mid?

Osh · 23/06/2013 at 22:26

I got Birchalled, Vlustained, Hrovated and Pittarded!!!

davo · 24/06/2013 at 02:35


Pete · 24/06/2013 at 09:39

Goodbye Birchall and Hanley, hopeless DT defenders

Hello Goddard and Ibbo

david · 24/06/2013 at 11:41

What do you guys think of Bachar Houli as a POD in defense?

Johnny · 24/06/2013 at 13:54

Ouch lost by 20 points this week and had Birchall to blame….very annoyed!!

Fitzy · 24/06/2013 at 16:17

Is it possible to be elated and shattered at the same time?
My wife's team scored 2191 this week (a carefully planned assault on the difficult bye round when a lot of the guns were sidelined. A good score, with lake being her lowest included score with 82pts (birchall, goodes, vlastuin and hanley were the lower scores)
She ummed and ahhed about trading in griffen for swallow however decided against it.
End result 2nd overall for the round. Best ever weekly result for either of us, but one spot off the $1000k. I am not looking forward to seeing how much she got beaten by.

    SCaddict · 24/06/2013 at 19:40

    2191 is a monster score for that round. Surprised someone else was able to best that. Anneliese was unlucky to miss out on the grand.

Pete · 24/06/2013 at 18:45


Benny · 26/06/2013 at 07:34

birchall out for four weeks
