    jockreynolds · 10/08/2013 at 10:16

    You're a hell of a good man Best Coast – your input and your fierce commitment to assisting others in this community is inspiring to myself and to all and for that I thank you son. Thanks for the congratulations mate – we're bloody proud of what we're building here – even prouder through of the ripping vibe among the comments and the helpful nature of folk in this joint. Better stop. Tearing up a bit. LOve ya mate.

      BestCoastEagles · 10/08/2013 at 10:30

      Kind words Captain, i am totally over the moon and proud to be a part of the best football community in the modern World. Love back at ya Jock

bigfella · 10/08/2013 at 10:02

Hey boys thinking priddis is gunna get the flick today.
who out of watson selwood or griff takes the cake? money is not an issue i want points.
barlow even could get the call up…
cheers big rigs.

    BestCoastEagles · 10/08/2013 at 10:05

    Griifen for me, i am flicking Priddis to Watson next week as i have no Cyril Ash left.

    ShinbonerSpirit · 10/08/2013 at 10:22

    Points? Griffen and Watson will average similarly over the next few weeks. I give the edge to Griff.

    jockreynolds · 10/08/2013 at 10:24

    Yes no more being in Griffin denial for me. He's found consistency in his game and we could be looking a new long term super premium option in the Griff

      BestCoastEagles · 10/08/2013 at 10:33

      Still kicking myself over Griff Dog, the little man in the back of the scone was always saying to me this can't last. How wrong you were Little man.

    davidzita1 · 10/08/2013 at 14:23

    Griffen mate, proven this isn't just a purple patch, this is his new standard, bring him in

john · 10/08/2013 at 10:06

jock who to get rid of staker for? can get anyone in the mid or fwd: in the mid ive got pendles, ablett, selwood, jpk, rockliff, priddis and watson

in fwd ive got bartel, jarryd roughead, lewis, josh kennedy, staker (want to trade) , and rowe

who to get stake for?

    throttlefinger · 10/08/2013 at 10:11

    Martin would be a good choice.

    jockreynolds · 10/08/2013 at 10:17

    Yes agree with the throttle… The Man They Call Dustin is evolving. Get on.

    davidzita1 · 10/08/2013 at 14:24

    Stevie J mate, great run of games at Simmonds, all those suspensions have ensured he's rested

Ionnie · 10/08/2013 at 10:09

Need some advice, was going to fine tune the mids and dump JPK for Jobe who i reckon is going to pump out a few good scores but now wondering if i should dump Priddis instead (m8) is he right or not? I have T Mitchell on the bench as cover i guess..

    BestCoastEagles · 10/08/2013 at 10:15

    If you have held on to JPK so far i would keep him. Priddis to Watson Better as i am doing that next week. I have JPK as well the moment he flick him he will go "BANG"

      throttlefinger · 10/08/2013 at 10:19

      JPK hasn't stressed me as much as Zorko, but he's clearly in second. Think this is a gut call. Watson I would say is more likely to go ton this round. Who does your opponent have? If he has JPK and not Jobe, I might jump on that. Finals is trying to get that POD edge.

        Ionnie · 10/08/2013 at 11:43

        Both opponents have JPK and we're neck n neck so gonna flick him for the POD and hope like hell he doesnt go BANG and the frizzy headed one does! He had a low score last up against the pies so heres hoping!
        Cheers guys good luck for the round

    davidzita1 · 10/08/2013 at 12:28

    Got to get rid of Priddis, under injury cloud, JPK for all his faults this year still has the ability to produce some ripper scores

throttlefinger · 10/08/2013 at 10:09

Rolling dice making Crouch M6 instead of Mitchell (who is my opponent's M6). Hope Mundy doesn't pull a soreness.

    jockreynolds · 10/08/2013 at 10:17

    Best of luck Throttle!

    BestCoastEagles · 10/08/2013 at 10:18

    Good move i have watched Crouch play footy for years and he is a gun. In the next few years he will be a Super Premo.

Richard · 10/08/2013 at 10:17

I have to play either Tom Mitchell or O'Meara. Who would you go with?

    ShinbonerSpirit · 10/08/2013 at 10:21

    Better fixture? O'Meara. Better player? O'Meara. Jaeger all the way!

    jockreynolds · 10/08/2013 at 10:22

    I reckon the J Bomb against Melbourne RIchard – could be the way to go

    BestCoastEagles · 10/08/2013 at 10:24

    Toss of the coin Richard, i would pick O'Meara v Dees. But having said that i will be a smashing contest with the Pies V Swans mid's so many great players on both sides. I don't think Titch will cope a tag this week.

      throttlefinger · 10/08/2013 at 10:31

      Agree with BCE that Mitch won't get tag. But think KJack and O'Keefe (and possibly JPK) will go big before Tommy Boy. Regardless, Dees are a sad sack and the deflated mood from losing to GWS will continue against the Suns. Think J Bomb goes ton for certain.

    Richard · 10/08/2013 at 11:57

    Thanks folks. O'Meara it is. You are absolute champ, Jock.

Eefto · 10/08/2013 at 10:28

How are you going Jock, are you gonna win your first final? I am a massive chance with my opponent having 2 donuts

    jockreynolds · 10/08/2013 at 10:29

    Gday there Eefto – you got a gig on last Wednesday's video mate did you see? Mate – I finished 8th in the Premier League – not the best season for the Brumby this year but looking good in the consolation finals

    BestCoastEagles · 10/08/2013 at 10:39

    Donuts are popping up everywhere and they aren't sugar coated. So much carnage this year. Hope you have a good win Eefto

Tylo · 10/08/2013 at 10:53

Any news on whether Swanny and Pendles will play tonight? Have they flown up yet? With Priddis and Mundy under clouds, it could be carnage with 2 or 3 late outs.

    BestCoastEagles · 10/08/2013 at 11:00

    Swan & Pendles have gone to Sydney and should play. I will be in more trouble than the early settlers if the are out's as i have both with Priddis. Mundy and Priddis are doubtful from what i am hearing from the West.

      throttlefinger · 10/08/2013 at 11:39

      Swan + Pendles + Mundy out = bourbon round

Sam · 10/08/2013 at 11:07

Missing Buddy and Kruezer
Have to play Rowe and Staker
Also have underperforming mids like
JPK, Mundy and Priddis

ShinbonerSpirit · 10/08/2013 at 11:12

Forgot to mention it earlier, but loving the new Twitter integration, Jock!

gmack · 10/08/2013 at 11:21

Gday everyone, im locked in a QF battle with an arch rival and im in a bit of a panic. Hes predicted to edge me according to SC Gold. I got 426k and 3 trades left. Thinking Jaeger to Griffen DEFINITE and Nic Nat to A. Walker OR Thurlow to Dixon. Smart moves?

    throttlefinger · 10/08/2013 at 11:28

    Get Griffen FOR SURE. Walker is a good bet but Martin would be better. Playing like a crazed banshee. Who does your opponent have? Would look for PODs.

      gmack · 10/08/2013 at 12:05

      Thanks throttle. Have got Martin which is a good thing. I could do Nic Nat to def of my choice and move staker fwd. Would leave enuf to trade mitchel next week to anyone. Dixon playing melbourne, starting fwd is it too risky? Heater playing the swans could get the ball?

        throttlefinger · 10/08/2013 at 12:18

        Dixon has certainly came back strong. Impressed with the way he's gone apeshit while going weekend at bernies on us. So no, not too risky. And a strong move from Staker, who I'm afraid I still have and feel hitting a 100 is in his rearview. Good luck, gmack!

    Skintip · 10/08/2013 at 23:16

    SC GOLD??? Thats for hacks- a bit of cheating it is- has SC GOLD chosen your whole team for you?

    It was always my belief that any team you play that uses SC Gold should have an icon next to their name saying they use SC GOLD. Fantasy footy is a free game yet people pay to help choose their team?? I just dont get it.

    Its called SC, yet all I here is people asking "who should I trade", "who should I put on the field" and "should I bench such and such". I just dont get it!!!

    This site is awesome coz it gives opinions and hints etc, but the aim of the game is to CHOOSE AND COACH YOUR OWN TEAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have never asked what should I do with my team once in 3 years- why? Coz I am the coach. Thats my opinion thats all.

    I mean wheres the glory if someone tells you to get Jelwood and he fires up and gets massive scores? There is no glory coz you didnt make the decision yourself.

    Anyway, SC GOLD should be totally seperate from players like me- and maybe they can use some of the subscription fee for prizes for a SC GOLD competition.

    If you need the herald sun to give you all the stats and suggest your players to you- well, its just not cricket

Aaron · 10/08/2013 at 11:22

I didn’t watch the game last night Jock but I must say I’m a little disappointed with Big Boys score I brought him in only a few weeks ago and thought he may have got the better of Hale. Are we gonna see a 110+ score from him in the finals?

P.S I’m pushing towards the top 1k so thank you sir!

Jason · 10/08/2013 at 11:37

Hi everyone, Need to upgrade Staker, forwards are currently: Rockliff, martin, walker, bartel, zorko and staker. Going to trade nicholls down to grundy to free up some cash, but who is my best trade in option out of stevie j (opponent has him), pavlich or boomer harvey (both make a good POD). Thoughts?

    throttlefinger · 10/08/2013 at 11:49

    Cox looked inspired last week. Don't know if he can dupe that effort. Like Pavlich but he may be knocking off some rust after being out 3 games. Boomer…hmmm, very risky. Could go Boom or Blap. Stevie J is a beast and he's only going to be hitting it harder each round.. Even though opponent has Stevie J, would get him. Good luck!

    Aaron · 10/08/2013 at 11:58

    I reckon Boomer will get tagged and he does not like a tag. Stevie J is your best option but if your after a POD have a look at Matthew de Boer he could be one of the Freo players that really takes advantage of this brilliant run home they have.

    Pav over Boomer for me.

Jason · 10/08/2013 at 11:52

Thanks, I already have Cox in my ruck

Nick · 10/08/2013 at 11:52

i have 2 trades left in a Qualifing Final

Should i trade Nic-Nat to Ivan Maric or play B.Grundy?

    davidzita1 · 10/08/2013 at 12:34

    Depends on whether you're projected to win or not.
    If not, Nic-Nat to Sandilands if you've got the cash, otherwise bring in Maric.

      Nick · 10/08/2013 at 13:38

      its to close to call

Richard · 10/08/2013 at 12:02

Back again. With Buddy out, I have to play one of Staker or Zorko. Also with Ibbotson out, I have to play Clisby or Blayne Wilson. Finished 5th and in a very tight match. Any thoughts PLEASE!!

    throttlefinger · 10/08/2013 at 12:30

    This is a gut call. I have all of them…and, unfortunately, have to play them all. If I had to choose, I'd go Clisby and Zorko. Like what the Dee Boy Deffer did last week. Should some grit and ball hunger. Zorko…ugh. Well, I think he has the potential to go 120+. Staker no such feeling. Either could lay a curry farty egg.

    Know I've handed a thirsty man an empty beer can…but that's my 2 cents.

      Richard · 10/08/2013 at 12:50

      Still no clearer but at least I had a good laugh! Just can't bring myself to trust Zorko. Opponent has Staker in but no Zorko. May play safe on Staker and rely on others?

        throttlefinger · 10/08/2013 at 12:57

        Depends what kind of fight you're in. Keeping pace or trying to make ground. Keeping pace than match and hope for the best. Making up ground then go for POD. But I hear ya, I won't rest my finals on Zorko's shoulders.

    ShinbonerSpirit · 10/08/2013 at 13:15

    I don't like to watch Melbourne games (I have better things to do with my life) so I can't say too much about how Clisby plays. But I really like Bilson as a player, and his scores seem consistent enough. I'd probably go with him. Agree with throttle regarding Staker/Zorko.

d-mac3276 · 10/08/2013 at 12:02

Got 220k in the bank but got Buddy and Kreuz out.
Only got Grundy for cover on the bench and Sylvia on the bench for Buddy

My trades were going to be T Mitch and Jaeger out for 2 of Watson/Fyfe/Griffen/Jack
but now these outs have turned that all upside down

What ppl think should i go sideways with Kreuz to big Will and get one of the mids for T Mitch/O Meara or somehow get rid of Sylvia

    davidzita1 · 10/08/2013 at 12:32

    Get Minson in, trade up Mitchell or O'Meara to one of those 4. Sylvia will be right against Gold Coast this week

      d-mac3276 · 10/08/2013 at 12:49

      Yeah i thought he'd be alright against GWS last week and he stunk it up, bit of a worry.
      But yeah going Kreuz to big Will and sticking with Jaeger against the Dees and going T Mitch out for probably Griffen although Curnow might go to him who done the job on Gaz a couple of weeks back

        ShinbonerSpirit · 10/08/2013 at 13:17

        Yeah, they tagged the hell out of him. Don't think GC will resort to heavy tagging. They already have this game in the bag.

Scott · 10/08/2013 at 12:14

Can you reverse a trade after the round has started? I haven't had any players play yet

    d-mac3276 · 10/08/2013 at 12:22

    Nah you can't reverse a trade once its started but you can trade still. Just make sure its the trade you want as once you hit the button thats it

      Scott · 10/08/2013 at 12:26

      Awesome thanks for that!

Zimmer · 10/08/2013 at 12:17

Traded Priddis to S. Mitchell before last night's game. Happy with the result.

Wondering whether to trade Mayes for Scotland (swinging Staker to fwd bench).

Still have Zorko too, but just shy cashwise of being able to bring in a decent forward.

Otherwise I could hold off. Any advice?

    Zimmer · 10/08/2013 at 12:45

    Just done a bit of research:

    Could trade Zorko to Stokes in the fwd line, or to Ryder or Maric in the Rucks.

    Any advice Jock. Anyone. Appreciate it.

davidzita1 · 10/08/2013 at 12:30

Mayes to Scotland a good move in my opinion, as long as you'll still have a trade/s after that, if it's your last, save it instead

    Zimmer · 10/08/2013 at 12:47

    Yeah, have 3 trades left, so will have 2 for the rest of the finals.

Bob · 10/08/2013 at 12:52

J.selwood or griffen??

    ShinbonerSpirit · 10/08/2013 at 13:06


    EDIT: In hindsight, I may have been wrong…

    cotchandmurph · 14/08/2013 at 08:54

    Selwood easy

JB · 10/08/2013 at 13:25

Who to put on the field Gibbs or Ellis?

    davidzita1 · 10/08/2013 at 14:19


    EDIT: In hindsight, I may have been wrong…

    JS7 · 10/08/2013 at 15:56

    Ellis lol.

    ShinbonerSpirit · 10/08/2013 at 16:06

    I hope you chose Ellis.

    JB · 10/08/2013 at 16:25

    Ellis on field woop woop dilemma Gibbs / Shaw / Clisby which one on the field?

      ShinbonerSpirit · 10/08/2013 at 16:43

      Heath Shaw? If so, him. And congrats with Ellis.

        JB · 10/08/2013 at 21:46

        Clisby is looking a lot better right now oh well you win some and lose some

JS7 · 10/08/2013 at 14:13

Rockliff on fire.

davidzita1 · 10/08/2013 at 14:29

Fellas, have loophole going with Griffen, what score should I settle for given Gaz is playing 250th against Melbourne?

    ShinbonerSpirit · 10/08/2013 at 15:03


    JS7 · 10/08/2013 at 15:56

    Same here.

    I think settle for anything over 125.

JS7 · 10/08/2013 at 16:46

Matthew Lobbe with the equal third most hitouts ever: 59.

    ShinbonerSpirit · 10/08/2013 at 17:01

    In Geelong's defence, they have almost all their ruckmen out. But great job by Lobbe nonetheless.

JS7 · 10/08/2013 at 16:48

Selwood 152 – nice if you have him as VC.

julz · 10/08/2013 at 16:49

Take selwoods 152 for vc loophole ir stick with gaz?

    Watto · 10/08/2013 at 16:57

    Why wouldn't you take it. Take 150 everyday of the week even gazz's 250 th against melbourne.

    ShinbonerSpirit · 10/08/2013 at 17:00

    Don't think twice about it. Take Jelwood's score.

    Watto · 10/08/2013 at 17:01

    It's been upped to 160. Should be no questions weather to keep it.

dan · 10/08/2013 at 16:53

im thinking selwood as C , what do you think

    ShinbonerSpirit · 10/08/2013 at 17:00

    If Scott, no. If you loopholed Joel, of course.

    Pedro · 10/08/2013 at 17:03

    Selwood for sure mate

ShinbonerSpirit · 10/08/2013 at 16:53

Curnow on Cooney and Cachia on Libba.

JS7 · 10/08/2013 at 17:09

Griffin getting a heap of ball, hasn't been effective, one out on the full, one into the man on the mark and missed an easy set shot from the hotspot.

Tom · 10/08/2013 at 17:20

Should I keep the C on Ablett, or take the VC score of Selwood (160) and run?

    JS7 · 10/08/2013 at 17:30

    VC on Selwood.

    Take 160 to the bank.

    davidzita1 · 10/08/2013 at 17:57

    Ablett. Vs Melbourne. At Metricon. Gary's 250th.

    You make the call mate

      Tom · 10/08/2013 at 21:48

      Thank God i didn't listen to you!

        davidzita1 · 10/08/2013 at 22:00

        Sorry mate, thought Gaz would turn it on for such a big game, not turn it off!!

    ShinbonerSpirit · 10/08/2013 at 19:33

    Selwood. Selwood. Selwood. You cannot throw away a potential 320 points.

DDogYo · 10/08/2013 at 17:36

got a question
If you have 2 emergency in the same spot like two ruck emergency do I get a higher score

DDogYo · 10/08/2013 at 17:38

Do iget the higher score or the lower score

    JS7 · 10/08/2013 at 17:44


JS7 · 10/08/2013 at 17:51

Griffin only on 30 at half time.

    ShinbonerSpirit · 10/08/2013 at 19:30

    98 point second half!

jack · 10/08/2013 at 17:56

G'day everyone,
Taking Selwoods 160 as vice captain loophole, and putting K. Martin on field as captain. This means i have Priddis on bench replacing Martins zero. Will Priddis play? If he is a late out i will be risking a donut. Should i make Tom Mitchell as emergency and play him over Priddis, just to remove risk of a Priddis donut?
Thanks alot!

    MATT · 10/08/2013 at 18:47

    i would

Jeremy · 10/08/2013 at 17:59

Scotland getting robbed because Waite has dropped it literally every time he's kicked it to him… Annoying.

Happy about using the loop on Jelwood though! Knowing my luck, Gaz will score even more against my beloved dees though

Eagler · 10/08/2013 at 18:56

Hey guys,
I need to play either Mitchell or Crouch on field. My head and my gut are at odds with each other about who to choose.

nick · 10/08/2013 at 20:50

found out something never ever to put the c on gary abblett for rest of the year joel selwood will get it what a joke gaz is against Melbourne and only scored 46 at halftime selwood had 95 at half time against port don't care what people think of this gaz should never be given the cap

    JOHNAA · 10/08/2013 at 21:56

    Get out

    BestCoastEagles · 11/08/2013 at 10:29

    SORRY to say Nick, but you might need VIAGRA eye drop's to have a good hard look at yourself

nick · 10/08/2013 at 21:06

one more thing the gold coast players were saying abblett is the best player in the leage I choke on that selwood would have be one of the best players in the leage I reckon this year he is he cant even give you a decent score on dream team or supercoach

    ShinbonerSpirit · 10/08/2013 at 21:31

    I hope you realise he's averaging almost 140 this year. Ignore him at your own peril.

    Anthony · 10/08/2013 at 22:51

    To be fair, it is not entirely Ablett's fault he was badly injured at around three quarter time and may not play for a few weeks.

davidzita1 · 10/08/2013 at 22:13

Nick, this comment you have just made is farcical.

Gary Ablett has dropped below 100 once, now probably twice, this season and the first time he did he scored 99.

Joel Selwood has dropped below 100 six times, with one of his scores being 54.

Don't mistake this for hate because I'm a huge fan of Joel Selwood and huge fan of Gaz.

But DON'T question Gary Ablett, because he is clearly THE BEST PLAYER IN THE LEAGUE, both AFL, Supercoach and Dream Team.

JS7 · 10/08/2013 at 22:22

Ablett 67.

Pendlbury: 156.

Watto · 10/08/2013 at 22:26

What the bajesus is Ablett doing. I went the whole season without him and bought him in after his 175 and he is just cruising along getting very average scores. What's the deal? Injured, can't be bothered. Take out his 170 and he has been averaging less than 105 since he scored 140 against essendon.

    Mike · 10/08/2013 at 22:48

    Gary Ablett injured his right hand at around three quarter time. It looks pretty bad and he could miss the next two weeks. Not good.

    guest · 11/08/2013 at 12:09

    just because he is not getting good scores in super coach, is no reflection of him "not being bothered"….one would think……hope…..

nick · 10/08/2013 at 22:34

think by naming abblett cap is going coast me a lost this weekend what a loser cant even score over 70 against mel should named selwood

    John · 10/08/2013 at 22:55

    Yeah I agree. Ablett went at that ball like a bull and now we have to possibly trade him out because he was being so reckless

dave · 10/08/2013 at 22:43

does captians loophole not work in finals?

It is so frustating for all of the dream team coaches out there now that we have to deal with Gary Ablett's injury!

ShinbonerSpirit · 10/08/2013 at 22:48

Everyone's going to jump off Ablett next week, and he will score 190. It always works that way.

    BestCoastEagles · 11/08/2013 at 09:08

    Agreed Shinboner !!. The amount of people panicking about the great one (GAJ). They can jump of at there peril all that will do is end in more tears. Good luck to the Roo Boys today

Chicken · 10/08/2013 at 22:51

Should I take Pendlebury's 150 or gamble with Barlow vs GWS

    throttlefinger · 10/08/2013 at 22:58

    C'mon, dude. 150 is SC gold. And it's for certain. No guessing. Unless you're losing and your opponent had Pendles…take…it…now!

      BestCoastEagles · 11/08/2013 at 09:00

      Agreed !!

    fundoginthehouse · 10/08/2013 at 23:02

    similiar issue – I put the VC on Ablett, now I have to choose between Barlow and Fyfe for Cap. If you can, hold of on your decision as long as possible, otherwise take the bird in hand, he's cleared 130 and thats usuallly a good rule to follow.

    BestCoastEagles · 11/08/2013 at 08:58

    Really !!!!. Keep it mate, unless you are greedy and all that can do is end in tears. If you are losing and need to send the Hail Mary out maybe. Rule of thumb 130+ is a keeper.

    ShinbonerSpirit · 11/08/2013 at 10:26

    Take the 150. Gambling on Barlow will only end badly.

throttlefinger · 10/08/2013 at 23:08

Opponent looped Selwood. I had Gazza. 152 points I need to make up against 4 POD players. Not likely. Finals…such a cruel mistress.

    BestCoastEagles · 11/08/2013 at 08:51

    Feel your pain throttlefinger, i myself looped Selwood and if he didn't score at least 140+ (Normally 130+) i would have gone GAJ. Was so confident that GAJ in his 250 against Dees at home that he would have gone big. I have been burnt so many times on the Loop this year. There will be some low scores this week. Good Luck Mate

      throttlefinger · 11/08/2013 at 09:20

      Thanks BCE. But I'm toast. Relying on Mundy, Ryder, Crouch and your boy Wilson against Myers, JJK and Barlow. Tall order. Going to hit the bourbon and ginger and hope it can get me a win.

        BestCoastEagles · 11/08/2013 at 09:35

        A couple of stiff Bourbs always a great remedy for Supercoach pain.

    ShinbonerSpirit · 11/08/2013 at 10:28

    Yep, same thing happened to me. I'm playing the community's very own Chandanraj, and I was projected to win until Gazza happened. Can't make up that deficit with three uniques.

dave · 11/08/2013 at 00:34

supercoach isnt letting me change captain from franklin argh!!!!

    BestCoastEagles · 11/08/2013 at 08:43

    Because his team have all ready played Dave. Rookie Mistake if you Captain looped with your C in the first game. Everybody has made that blunder at least once. Hope you can recover Dave

Mick · 11/08/2013 at 08:23

I'm 5 points behind the ladder leader, he captained GAJ, I put the VC on him. My options to captain today are
Who would you choose?

    Tom · 11/08/2013 at 08:43

    Easily Fyfe!

    BestCoastEagles · 11/08/2013 at 08:52

    I don't think it matter's who. All will beat GAJ score. I would go Fyfe at home against GWS

    throttlefinger · 11/08/2013 at 09:21

    Fyfe. At home and has been playing big. He will go big. But like BCE commented, pretty sure each will go ton or beat Gazza un-Gazza score.

    Brian · 11/08/2013 at 11:39

    Well done Mick. Reading all the dumb negative posts about Gazza, they should be playing him the way you have.

John · 11/08/2013 at 10:33


Mick · 11/08/2013 at 12:30

The community has spoken….Fyfe it is. Fingers crossed no late outs!

ABC · 11/08/2013 at 12:58

3 trades left and in an elimination final.

Opponent has 145 + Heppell and I have Cox, Nic Nat and Barlow.

T/U- Back myself in (I’ll need the trades later on)
T/D – Trade Nic Nat to Pav?

    Tom · 11/08/2013 at 12:59

    Nic Nat to Pav. No point losing the final and have 3 trades not used

    ABC · 11/08/2013 at 13:03

    Or maybe Mayne?

    fundoginthehouse · 11/08/2013 at 15:03

    dont trade unless you have to – so wait until freo game and trade Pav if you must – he should be fit ready to go

Will · 11/08/2013 at 13:09

fyfe or barlow. Fyfe has greater abilty to get those 130s but barlow has not dropped below 100 since round 6

adam v · 11/08/2013 at 16:30

come on fyfe get me 250 as captain

    ShinbonerSpirit · 11/08/2013 at 18:10

    At this rate he'll be lucky to pass Ablett.

JB · 11/08/2013 at 16:41

2 Trades left how can I improve this team and give some firepower?

Thoughts greatly appreciated …

DEF: Goddard, Shaw, Gibbs, Enright, Hartlett, Hanley (Ellis, Clisby)
MID: Ablett, Swan, Pendlebury, JPK, Selwood, Shuey, S Johnson, Fyfe (T. Mitchell, Zorko)
Ruck: Cox, Leuenberger (Nicholls, Mc Bean)
FWD: Franklin, Roughead, Rockliff, A. Walker, JJK, Staker (Rowe, Daniher)

    ShinbonerSpirit · 11/08/2013 at 16:54

    Staker/Rowe to Dustin Martin would be great! Then hold that last trade for injuries. If you're feeling a bit ballsy, JPK to Watson would be a definite improvement.

ShinbonerSpirit · 11/08/2013 at 19:01

Duffield's been completely ripped off. Racking up the numbers (including a goal) and still in the 60s.

nick · 11/08/2013 at 19:18

I lost by 40 poimts all becoase I put the c on horrible abblett and not super selwood or Watson oh well should win next weel

@emhoy · 11/08/2013 at 19:45

2341 Selwood as captain and Mayne as my last trade today has got me over the line in 3 of my 4 finals. I lost one final by 5 pts but have double chance so not to bad.

ShinbonerSpirit · 11/08/2013 at 19:47

2308 with Ablett as captain. Going to do Nic Nat to Mayne next week with my final trade if NN isn't back. Ruing what could've been a 2400+ score if Ablett had a half-decent game.

    @emhoy · 11/08/2013 at 19:49

    I did nit nat to Mayne today as stakers 79 I did not think was enough for me to win. Can't believe mayne got 130.

    davidzita1 · 11/08/2013 at 21:00

    At least there are a huge number of people who would've made Gaz captain as well

    chandanrajdb · 12/08/2013 at 10:07

    Bad Luck ShinbonerSpirit………bad C & VC choice had made your team loose against my team……anyways good luck in the other leagues mate…..your team is very very solid……………

    I am thinking of doing no trades this week……won 5/5 leagues I am in…..and have got 1 elimination final this week in the same league you got knocked off…….

    Have got Nic Nat in my team as well…..and I dont think he will be back this season…….so thinking of trading him…..have got 3 options mate which one do you reckon is a good one…..

    Option – 1:
    OUT: Nic Nat……..IN: Dusty……
    Option – 2:
    OUT:Nic Nat…….IN:Will Minson
    Option – 3:
    OUT:Nic Nat….IN:Chris Mayne

    What are your thoughts……..

    Its even this year win/loss between us……you won against me in the league stage and I won against you in the finals!!!…….


      ShinbonerSpirit · 12/08/2013 at 17:00

      Dusty for sure mate. Always good to have players who play a vital free-running role in a team truly contending for the premiership.

        chandanrajdb · 12/08/2013 at 17:06

        Thanks mate…..will see how my opponents team looks like on Friday and the projected scores…….if I feel I have a chance of beating him without doing any trades then I will hold on to the trade if not I will decide to trade or not during the rolling lockout……before WCE and Richmond plays…….

        That's it I will be looking to bring in Dusty into my team as my final trade…..if not this week, next week for sure…..

        Thanks for you comments above mate…….much appreciated…….and all the best for you in other leagues…….


storm · 11/08/2013 at 20:16

money no problem i have the week off i do not want to pick revolt because of that knee
thanks for your time guys

    Chicken · 11/08/2013 at 23:09

    Don't trade out Bartel. He played the first half deep in defence, where the action wasn't occurring. He scored a majority of his 61 in the last quarter.
    Keep him this week and see how he goes.

    storm · 13/08/2013 at 11:02

    thanks for your help Chicken

Anonymous · 11/08/2013 at 20:25

Final trades:

OUT Shuey IN Griffin
OUT Franklin IN Watson

Advice please

    davidzita1 · 11/08/2013 at 21:00

    Great trades, but if Buddy is named wouldn't trade him

Damien · 11/08/2013 at 21:08

Hi guys im looking to trade Tom mitchell for my 8th mildfield spot although i dont have much cash in the bank

The best of my options are

Gibbs, DanielRich, Marc Murphy, Scott thompson, Stanton, and maybe even Brock Maclean

Help would be very much appreciated thanks

    James · 11/08/2013 at 21:29

    Bryce Gibbs or Marc Murphy.

      Damien · 11/08/2013 at 21:33

      Yeh they are the 2 im heading towards

Watto · 11/08/2013 at 21:08

Why is everyone raving on about a point of difference. There is no point picking up a player who will average less just because he is a point of difference. If you picked up Ricky Henderson over say Goddard then you have created a point if difference for the opposition who has the better player and you have lost points. I beleive people should be striving to make the best team possible no matter how many people own them.
If you think Ricky will avergae more the the rest of the year then bring him in. Just make the decision because you think he will average more points not because on 4% of people own him.

Obviously if calculated risks need to be taken then look for a POD, but just don't pick a player because he's unique.
That's just my opinion anyway.

    Damien · 11/08/2013 at 21:17

    Agreed watto !

    Skintip · 11/08/2013 at 23:06


    Rocksta · 13/08/2013 at 23:11

    IMO, a POD should only be a player that has performed well all year but isn't that popular e.g Montagna,Sloane etc.

Jack · 11/08/2013 at 21:36

How do 2 Essendon defenders score 130 and 122 Supercoach points when West Coast did that big a demolition job on them – smashing them that badly that they doubled their score? Yeah, I'm sookin' after going down by 3 measly points in my first qualifying final. Gives me a chance to take revenge on an opponent who knocked me off earlier in the year when Grimes got injured early .. and then on to meet my arch-nemisis in the prelim!! Did I mention I was ROBBED!! Damn plum rolling Fantasy Gods!!

    Chicken · 11/08/2013 at 23:01

    Those two essendon defenders were pretty much in every play and racked up heaps of possessions.
    Hibbered 30 at 80% effiecency and Goddard 27 at 78%
    Hibberd had 22 kicks and 8 marks
    Goddard 18 kicks, 10 marks and 3 goals…

      Jack · 12/08/2013 at 15:38

      I know Chicken. Unfortunately social media doesn't transfer emotion .. it was a sarcastic comment made in jest after getting done by 3 points – funnily enough by an opponents called Chicken Chasers .. LOL!!

nick · 11/08/2013 at 23:52

made Ashley smith to Enright and blitz man to mummy he is probably a inform ruckman at the moment think he is rucking back to his best nearly its going be interesting this week for me as I am playing someone who has 12 players the same as me just have to pick the right person in cap as I know she will go gazz and I will go joel selwood this week he will kill the eagles

Lochie · 12/08/2013 at 10:27

Is Terlich worth having on the field or should I upgrade Clisby so Terlich can be on the bench?
T/U: Hold Terlich
T/D: Upgrade Clisby

Jack · 12/08/2013 at 15:41

As all games are must win from here on in, bringing in an upgrade should be the way to go. If you have a non-player on the bench you can then maybe loop-hole Terlich.
