Matt · 11/08/2013 at 21:48

Jock do you think it is a wise move to go to Chris Mayne who is on fire with a simple 3 games coming for Lance Franklin who is on the injury list as 1-2, plus his an ultimate POD?

    The Old Dylan · 11/08/2013 at 21:50

    Do it! A move like that could win you a flag!

      Matt · 11/08/2013 at 21:53

      Cheers for the input Dylan

    Eefto · 11/08/2013 at 21:59

    Dont do it! A move like this could lose you a flag!

    Jobe watson · 12/08/2013 at 00:11

    well i did see mr dank after i got injured and he really helped me off my feet, he's been like a father to me.
    Btw dad if you could make my lunch tomorrow morning that would be great, the healthy natural vitamins that i took before the game today are making me a bit tired and i could do with a little sleep in

    Daniel · 12/08/2013 at 10:41

    Have a look at Dustin Martin too, although seems alright

Tommo · 11/08/2013 at 21:53

through to prelims in all leagues with 350 000 and three trades,last minute decision not to trade priddis payed off, just want Nichols back and i will be set.

    Jobe watson · 11/08/2013 at 22:48

    priddo may have won the match but i won the battle of supercoach points

Will · 11/08/2013 at 21:54

people are saying that ablett could be out for the rest of the season. Who do people think is the best trade in for him?

    Remy · 11/08/2013 at 22:00

    No no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no no…….

    ShinbonerSpirit · 12/08/2013 at 17:03

    Nah mate, they're pulling your leg.

    BestCoastEagles · 14/08/2013 at 10:58

    People throwing smoke bomb's. Don't stress Will, i think all will be OK

Joe Carnegie · 11/08/2013 at 21:57

Hey guys me again (probably sick of me asking for help now LOL)

still need help with trades and such (its my first year playing supercoach – into round 2 of finals) I have 187k in the bank with 5 trades left.

B] Goddard, Hibberd, Heppell, GIbbs, Hanley, Shaw (Docherty, Colquhoun)
M] Ablett, Pendles, Swan, Selwood, Fyfe, T.Mitchell, JPK, Barlow (M. Grigg, L.hunter)
R] Goldstein, Pyke (Grundy, currie)
F] Cox, Rockliff, JJK, Franklin, Johnson, Tom Lee (Macaffer, Atkins)

Once again all advice is much appreciated, good luck for the rest of finals guys!


    Will · 11/08/2013 at 22:15

    you defs need to pyke and lee off the field. maybe trade lee for mayne, reiwolt or bartel. Although bartel has been poor lately. Pyke is a bit difficult because of his price so im not sure about him.

    throttlefinger · 11/08/2013 at 22:30

    Nice team, Joe. Would say areas worth upgrading are Mitchell and your forwards (i.e. too many position fwds). Would try to get Martin in on Forwards. Maybe for Buddy…not sure depth of injury but regardless he has proven not to be reliable. Dusty boy is.

    If you were to upgrade Mitchell, Rory Sloane might not be a bad POD given your budget. Looked fantastic. Last three rounds= 97, 122, 180. As gang said, easy finals road from here on out.

    My first year as well and I didn't practice trade discipline that you did. Lesson the hard way, eh? Good luck, Joe.

    Jobe watson · 11/08/2013 at 22:46

    mitchell has really dropped off the last couple of weeks, you have a decent amount of cash to bring me in and still upgrade lee or mccaffer to someone half decent

      Skintip · 11/08/2013 at 22:53

      Loving your lil pep talk Jobe. And totally agree- but hows the shoulder going? You gonna be able to smash out scores for next few weeks?

      sleepy · 12/08/2013 at 20:57

      Yeah right and I'm Batman. Jobe Watson doesn't blow his own trumpet.

    Daniel · 12/08/2013 at 10:43

    Macaffer to L.Johnston
    T.Lee/R.Atkins to premo forward

    @noahcavanagh · 12/08/2013 at 18:57

    trade pyke to a good ruckmen who can get at least 80 for the finals and get rid of tom mitchell for sam mitchell who is cheap

    Joe Carnegie · 12/08/2013 at 20:42

    thanks for the advice everyone i really do appreciate it haha

    Just need to clarify something,
    what do you reckon is best i do for example what daniel said to trade macaffer and get some cash really appealed to me as it would give me enough to either get A) any forward B)any mid

    and if i were to trade out pyke i could put cox in the ruck and also get a forward but then still have tommy mitch

Remy · 11/08/2013 at 21:59

Wasn't Ibbotson meant to play, or was he never named in the Freo squad?

    dustin · 11/08/2013 at 22:37

    pulled out last minute just before the squad of 22 was announced

    Jobe watson · 11/08/2013 at 22:41

    wasn't on the team sheet on friday including emgs

    Devilz · 12/08/2013 at 16:16

    He was my captain – a winning captain

Damien · 11/08/2013 at 22:25

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, Daniel Rich, Marc Murphy, Scott thompson, Brent Stanton, and maybe even Brock Maclean

Help would be very much appreciated thanks

    dustin · 11/08/2013 at 22:41

    rioli or marc murphy (spending less will give you inconsistent scores)

    Ads · 12/08/2013 at 10:28

    Seeing as you don’t have much cash consider Harley Bennell 123,& 122 in last 2 weeks 446,00 or deledio

      Damien · 12/08/2013 at 16:22

      Thanks guys
      I would love to get bennel but im 9 K off and already have deledio

        Ads · 15/08/2013 at 09:42

        Then Sharrod Wellingham at 407,000 is a good option with DPP as well. He has been in good form the last 3 weeks.

        sleepy · 16/08/2013 at 10:42

        Sounds like you have around $437K. Kane Cornes at $436,500 worth considering and he is averaging 104. Last round 101

    Daniel · 12/08/2013 at 10:40

    Marc Murphy or Scott Thompson. More Scott Thompson, easier run home.

Jacko2128 · 11/08/2013 at 23:01

Forward line is :
Rockliff, roughy, jjk, zorko, steve j, buddy.

Wanting to trade zorko for a good POD, can get anyone! Or should i upgrade stake/ duffield down back?
2 trades left

    Chicken · 11/08/2013 at 23:21

    Do you have enough cash to upgrade Zorko to Mayne?

    If not consider Walters, Bartel, J. Grant, Wellingham, Darling, Bruest or Tippett.

    Westy · 12/08/2013 at 15:13

    If you have a Ruck/Fwd switch, how about bringing Lobbe into the rucks, and one of the rucks to the fwd line.

    Sleepy · 12/08/2013 at 21:03

    Motlop at 458k averaging 124 over last 3 games

      ShinbonerSpirit · 12/08/2013 at 21:55

      This. Great POD. Racking up the possessions!

    BestCoastEagles · 14/08/2013 at 13:19

    POD are great but not at the expense of Premiums if you pick a Premo POD fantastic . Would be looking at Dustbin Martin if if was i

big fella · 11/08/2013 at 23:40

have enough $$ to upgrade tom mitchell to anyone, I dont have any of: Pendles, Beams, Griffen, Watson, or Dangerfield, who will finish off the most strongly? Any other absolute preimum mids I'm missing? cheers lads

    Remy · 12/08/2013 at 07:37

    One of Pendles, Griffen or Danger for mine big fella.

    Daniel · 12/08/2013 at 10:38


    jockreynolds · 12/08/2013 at 13:04

    Pendles all the way big fella

big fella · 11/08/2013 at 23:59

will be my last trade of the season next week (fingers crossed no injuries this week), so price does not matter.

Remy · 12/08/2013 at 07:17

Josh J Kennedy to Matthew Pavlich? Good POD?

    Watto · 12/08/2013 at 07:41

    Only entertain if you have dustin Martin, Rockcliff, Stevie J.

    jockreynolds · 12/08/2013 at 13:04

    Not absolutely convinced Pav will rock into good form till finals

    Watto · 12/08/2013 at 16:14

    Maybe may be a good one though.

      Watto · 12/08/2013 at 20:23


        Remy · 13/08/2013 at 20:43

        My FWD line is Dusty, Roughy, Kennedy, Stevie J, Buddy, Motlop (Macaffer, Daniher)
        My opponent has JJK and I want to get rid of him ASAP.
        I can afford anyone under 460k….

          sleepy · 16/08/2013 at 10:51

          Best options IMO Grant $401K averaging 103 over last 3 games, Tippett $452K ave 108 last 3 and Motlop $458K ave 124 over last 3. All great POD's as all own by less than 5% of coaches

    BestCoastEagles · 14/08/2013 at 17:36

    I am hoping JJK gets spoon feed for the Coleman. Need something out of this forgettable season.

Watto · 12/08/2013 at 07:38

I have Franklin, Cloke, Kennedy in my forward line and Ryder on the bench and I was murdered. Only have two trades left what do I do. I do t have Martin and can afford him but I want to have enough trades. Who should go? Or should I hold.?

    Watto · 12/08/2013 at 07:39

    I want to keep Ryder because of his ruck/fwd combo with Rowe.

    jockreynolds · 12/08/2013 at 13:03

    Personally – comes down to your opponent. How do you measure up against him/her? Reckon you have things covered? If there's any doubt and you face sudden death I would trade your arse off this weekend and try to get through to the Prelim

      Watto · 12/08/2013 at 16:44

      I reckon I will trade. Do you have any idea who I should get rid of. Ill get rid of franklin if not back in but out of cloke and Kennedy who will score more this year? Just wondering how you rate Haw, West C and Norths defence against the big men compared to Gee, Coll and adelaides.

    Daniel · 16/08/2013 at 10:50

    Cloke to Martin. Cloke is too inconsistent

cotchandmurph · 12/08/2013 at 09:46

what is wrong with JPK, he just cant get near the ball, at least lids is starting to find more of the ball and break the tag

    jockreynolds · 12/08/2013 at 13:02

    What a disapointment JPK has been in the back end of the season. Strongly suspect he has been carrying – big chance of being rested over the next 3.

    ShinbonerSpirit · 12/08/2013 at 17:06

    Also opting to handball rather than kick way too many times.

    Alan · 13/08/2013 at 13:06

    Completely agree, I have had him since the start of the year and though he was a player that could have taken another big step forward. Now his almost a liability and has dropped to much in value to trade. Was half thinking of trading him to Watson, though Kennedy does have Saints and Hawks coming which he generally scores well against. Bit torn on this one… What do you guys think trade or keep……

      SCaddict · 13/08/2013 at 17:36

      Reckon you have to hang on to him but trade him if he gets rested.

Jay · 12/08/2013 at 10:18

Great podcast as usual!! Also fantastic interview with John – wish both John and Mick the Mad Irishman all the best for the next 3 rounds!!! Good luck lads!

I've got through this week and have got a week-off…..The only concern I'm having is have only 1 trade left and wondering whether to use it up this week or keep for next week?

My thoughts for the last trade…..I have 2 options…

Trade out T. Mitchell.
Option 1) Straight swap to Jobe Watson
Option 2) Put Stevie J/Rocky in the MID and bring in Chris Mayne

Any suggestions?

    Tim Watson · 12/08/2013 at 12:16

    My son's been in good form the past couple of weeks, and is cheap as chips.

      sleepy · 12/08/2013 at 21:14

      Batman again my prodige Robin is coming along just fine too. LOL

    jockreynolds · 12/08/2013 at 13:01

    Gday there Jay – glad you liked the show. Would definitely save that trade if you have the week off no doubts there.

      Jay · 12/08/2013 at 14:06

      Cheers Jock! Will hold that trade till the Elimination Final

Daniel · 12/08/2013 at 10:27

G'day community. Great podcast Jock and the crew! I didn't go boomer last week and it paid off, as he probably would have lost a qualifying final for me but my other league I lost in the qualifying final. I have thought of 4 options for trading this week. I only have one trade left and $250000 in the bank (which I probably won't use it all)
Option 1-Straight swap Mayes/ A.Black for D.Martin/or another forward
Option 2-Trade T.Mitchell for D.Martin/another forward so I can switch player some mid/forward in my mid (switch Mayes to mid)
Option 3-Trade T.Mitchell for R.Henderson (switch mayes to mid) so I can switch in def to mid (staker) and mid to forward.
Option 4-Don't do anything
Advice would be great thanks

    Jay · 12/08/2013 at 11:02

    Depends on a couple of things……if you are using T Mitchell as M9, then i would definitely trade him out first – put Mayes into M9 and bring in a Fwd – Dusty is a good choice – hasn't scored under 102 for last 5 rounds with a 5 wk average of 113, so would be a good choice…

    However, if you've got T Mitchell on field playing in your Midfield – the I would look to upgrade him to a premo Mid – either Fyfe/Barlow/Swan if you've got enough coin…..if not then Watson/Mundy/Deledio would be good choices as well..

chandanrajdb · 12/08/2013 at 11:49

Hello Community…..

Won 5/5 finals matches this week……and into Prelims in 4/5 leagues……will be playing one game in elimination finals this week…….got 1 trade left…….i was thinking of doing the trade last week from Nic Nat to Boomer……I didn't do it and held on to the trade, probably the best thing i have done so far this season…..Joel Selwood as VC saved me from doing the trade as well got the win in all my leagues……..

My Team, Team Name: "TITANS"

DEF: Goddard, Heppell, Hartlett, Gibbs, H Shaw, D Terlich, G Birchall, X Richards

MID: Gazza, Pendles, Swan, Barlow, Dangerfield, Fyfe, JPK, J Selwood, T Mitchell, M Blicavs

RUCKS: T Goldstein, D Cox, T Nicholls, J Hannath

FWDS: J Roughead, T Rockliff, JJK, J Bartel, Steve J, Nic Nat, B Staker, J Daniher

I was thinking of doing the below trade…….may be this week or next week…..

OUT: Nic Nat…..

Option – 1: Dusty Martin
Option – 2: Chris Mayne
Option – 3: Will Minson
Option – 4: Andrew Walker
Option – 5: Boomer Harvey

Which option do I need to consider strongly…..and what do you guys think……I personally tending towards Option 1 or 3……..

Thoughts Please…..


    udi · 12/08/2013 at 12:20

    3 but why do u trade this week???

    Daniel · 12/08/2013 at 12:32


    jockreynolds · 12/08/2013 at 12:59

    Gday there Raj – great season mate. Absolutely positively completely and utterly reckon you hold onto that trade till the eve of the prelims – and pull the trigger then. Otherwise and all things being this way come prelim time – Dusty

      chandanrajdb · 12/08/2013 at 13:10

      Thanks Jock for your comments above…….much appreciated……will be holding that trade this week…….and yes this season has gone really really well for me……being a 2nd year player of SC……and also being ranked 641 overall……quite amazing actually…….

      Love this community…..Jock……keep the good work guys……….


    BestCoastEagles · 14/08/2013 at 13:33

    Congratulations on a stellar season Raj, i would go Dusty or move Cox forward and slot Big Will in the Ruck when you do trade. Best of luck for the remainder of the season mate

      chandanrajdb · 14/08/2013 at 16:48

      Thanks BCE for your comments……I read all your comments in the community mate……most of the time the advice you provide are spot on……some times i have considered your opinions given to other people's querries…… are doing a great job with your comments in this community mate…..keep up the good work mate……

      And regarding my issue in selecting Will Minson and Dustin… have actually made my decision to go for Dusty a bit harder by giving me 2 options…….I just want a player who people think will score more in the remaining 3 games of the season……..I think I will not be doing any trades this week mate……next it will be either Dusty or Will Minson……

      Target for me will be to finish off the season in the top 500……..Hopefully I will achieve that…….and win in atleast couple of leagues……will be a very satisfied SC year 2013 for me……very very happy……And would like to thank all the people involed in this community for making the JR community a very very special community for the SC'ers…….

      Cheers mate,

        BestCoastEagles · 14/08/2013 at 19:13

        Cheers For the kind words & feedback really appreciate that Raj. My advice is merely giving people fuel to think about different options. Sometimes we have made our mind up and just need reassurance that we are on the right track. For me i like getting people thinking. At the end of the day a little research & a sprinkle of luck makes a Supercoach grand. I am glad i have made your choice harder, that way your thinking outside the square. You will make the right call when needed and travel to Supercoach victory.
        Cheers Mate.

Tim Watson · 12/08/2013 at 12:11

I personally would not trade at all this week, but if you have to I think option 3 is the best.

jag · 12/08/2013 at 12:31

only have 2 trades left, getting rid of zorko, 51k in the bank, who should i get?

    jockreynolds · 12/08/2013 at 13:00

    What options are you kicking around mate?

    BestCoastEagles · 14/08/2013 at 13:30

    You are limited to who you can bring in with that amount of ca$h. Zorkonator can still smack out 150+. I think you might of left your run to late to flick him unless you burn two trades.

Ryan · 12/08/2013 at 13:35

Should I keep Kennedy and Cloke? I have 3 trades left and 65k in the bank. I have a week off (I'm in the prelims) and my other FWDs are Dusty, Bartel, Rockliff and Johnson. I will hold a trade this week but would you look to get one of them out? And for who would you trade for?

    Watto · 12/08/2013 at 18:39

    Mayne. Soft draw and doesn't need a whole lot of the pill to get points. Just 18 touches got him 130. He did have 11 tackles though.

    Daniel · 13/08/2013 at 14:46

    Cloke is a lot more inconsistent than jjk, maybe bring in cox or take the punt on Ricky Henderson/Chris Mayne, A.Walker if you can afford him.

Westy · 12/08/2013 at 15:04

Jock, Nicnat has been taking up space on the pine. Any love for Lobbe as a POD?

    ShinbonerSpirit · 12/08/2013 at 17:04

    Lobbe could be interesting, but let's face it: He isn't going to get that many hitouts every game.

    Watto · 12/08/2013 at 18:37

    Unless you are in an awful position and need to take risk like that to survive its not worth it. Don't go chucking in a player just because he a POD. Look at roughead and even Jacobs and sandakan ss before I reckon and look higher if you have the cash. if you can trade in a forward look for Mayne.

    Joey Joe Joe · 12/08/2013 at 20:21

    Lobbe had one good game…. don't chase points already booked. 3 tons in a year does not make a good gamble.

      ShinbonerSpirit · 12/08/2013 at 21:57

      Can't remember the specifics, but I'm pretty sure he had another surprisingly good game not too long ago. But you make a good point nonetheless.

        BestCoastEagles · 14/08/2013 at 17:26

        127 v St Kilda round 17

    BestCoastEagles · 14/08/2013 at 13:11

    Great game against Geelong, has GC next and then Blues & Dockers. can't see him doing that against Kreuz , Warnock & Sandi Balls, Clarke they will slaughter him. Agree with Watto Joe Joe Joe & Shinboner. To big a gamble for mine that said gambling is what finals are about. Good luck with your endeavours

James D · 12/08/2013 at 15:28

Def, Goddard, Heppel, Shaw, GIbbs, Mckenise, Clisby, goodes, thrulow
Mid, Ablet, Pendles, Swan, Selwood, Fyfe, Cotchin, Barlow,dangerfield, mitchael, martin
Ruck, Jacobs, rowe, nicols, mcbean
Fwd: Martin , rockcliff, bartel, franklin, nic nat, roughy, staker, lee,

Thoughts guys!

    Jack · 12/08/2013 at 17:10

    Roughy into the ruck for Rowe. Try and trade Staker for Stevie J or Andrew Walker.

    Trade Brett Goodes for Pearce Hanley. Good team otherwise.

ShinbonerSpirit · 12/08/2013 at 17:03

Cheers for the shout out Jock! Great podcast as usual!

    jockreynolds · 12/08/2013 at 19:27

    Welcome Shinboner – loving your input mate

    throttlefinger · 13/08/2013 at 20:42

    Appreciate the shoutout as well, Big J!

    BestCoastEagles · 14/08/2013 at 17:23

    Agreed !!

Jack · 12/08/2013 at 17:20

I bloody picked him, Wayno!

    Mr Selfridge · 13/08/2013 at 17:36

    bloody wayno making stupid decisions with his f'ed up crybaby voice

    BestCoastEagles · 14/08/2013 at 08:55

    Suggestions only lads, Wayno has done a superlative job this season for the Community. Sometimes we have to get lost in the grey matter and figure our own problem's out. All is not lost on Boomber.

      Favalinko · 14/08/2013 at 12:09

      listen to the communities advice, dissect the advice then go with your gut for the GUT NEVER LIES

Watto · 12/08/2013 at 18:35

What are the chances for the following players to return. Thurlow,Ibbotson (need one as clisby is gone).
Kreuzer, Nicholls (need both hopefully cause Ryder is out)
Any info in greatly appreciated

    Jono · 14/08/2013 at 07:09

    Thurlow played in the vfl last weekend and got best on ground so look for a possible return but with geelongs team it would be hard to get in

John Boy · 12/08/2013 at 18:47

Hey fellas, would love to hear your thoughts on burning my last 2 trades this week to get IN Dusty & Hanley for Lecras & Staker.

It would leave me no trades but I’m playing in all 5 leagues this week so I thought I may as well bite the bullet and go for it

    BestCoastEagles · 14/08/2013 at 08:50

    Finals time is the time to roll the dice. check your opponent and see what he has. You might be able yo beat them using one trade and saving one. If not by all means pull the trigger Those trades you have mentioned are winners John Boy

Ed.. · 12/08/2013 at 18:50

Hey Jock just wondering should i trade out Tom Mitchell (only have 2 trades left)
and if so who for i can get players like m.murphy, k.cornes, h.bennel or b.stanton but im leaning toward cornes could please help cheers

    Jobe Watson Is Back · 13/08/2013 at 17:30

    use both trades to get me in

    BestCoastEagles · 14/08/2013 at 17:22

    G'Day Ed, all depends on your situation in your league and your opponent. I would give Mitchell one more go around as he has Saints this week. Players you have mentioned are not doing that much better Titch anyway. If needed double trade for a Premium. Remember it's last dance last chance from here on in.

Dazza · 12/08/2013 at 18:53

team as follows guys. apprecaiate your help

Goddard. Hanley, Heppell, Thompson, Shaw, Staker ( Clisby, Webster )
GAJ, Pendles, Danger, Lids, Priddis, Barlow, Selwood, O'Meara ( Mitchell, Crouch )
Goldstein, Minson ( Hall, Currie )
Roughy, Bartel, Dusty, Rockliff, JJK, Cox ( Daniher, Kennedy )

2 trades, $183k

Thinking O'Meara/Mitchell to Swan and maybe get rid of Heppell for Dixon

Appreciate thoughts from the great minds….

    Favalinko · 12/08/2013 at 21:08

    little bit weak in def Dazza with Staker on ground and Clisby out for 3 weeks. I would upgrade Clisby for Dixon would leave Staker on bench which should leave enough coin for Omeara to S Mitchell or a Delido leaving you with Mitchellson on bench

      Favalinko · 12/08/2013 at 21:13

      sorry you have Lids maybe Watson

    Watto · 13/08/2013 at 16:13

    Don't do the second trade unless you have to, at least see How friday night goes but do the first.

    BestCoastEagles · 14/08/2013 at 17:13

    Mitchell to Swan Winner. Heppel to Dixon not so

JS7 · 12/08/2013 at 19:08

Clisby and Ryder both suspended – damn it.

    ShinbonerSpirit · 12/08/2013 at 21:59

    That suspension might actually come as a relief to Clisby. Fremantle is going to maul Melbourne.

      Mr Selfridge · 13/08/2013 at 17:31

      i have neither and that is all that matters with this issue, it is all about ME

@Jacko2128 · 12/08/2013 at 19:19

Get J. Grant In for mitchell OR Bob murphy for staker/Duffield?


Do both these trades?

    Wayno · 12/08/2013 at 20:50

    i;d go Bob Murphy. Im a doggies fan and im loving Grant's form but unfortunately it could turn around any second now. Doubt he'll keep up scoring for the next 3 weeks

    ShinbonerSpirit · 12/08/2013 at 20:55

    Staker out, Murphy in. Duffield too cheap to bother trading out now.

Wayno · 12/08/2013 at 20:08

Richie Douglas or Deledio?

    mr realist · 13/08/2013 at 17:29

    dougie is a gun, lids is a bum

    Chicken · 13/08/2013 at 18:47

    With Dangerfield back, Douglas is a better pick (it means Douglas won't get tagged)

    BestCoastEagles · 14/08/2013 at 08:41

    Deledio is starting to find the pig skin and running into a little form, hence he would be my pick out of the two.

    Favalinko · 14/08/2013 at 12:00

    Lids for me. GWS next

Jeepers · 12/08/2013 at 21:27

Hey Jock, just dropped my guts. 1 trade left . Into the prelims

Eagler · 12/08/2013 at 23:33

Laying here thinking about Friday night. Looks like I’ll be in a battle. Thinking of putting the VC on Swan. I reckon Pendles will be closely followed. Am I drunk or does this make sense?

    Favalinko · 13/08/2013 at 12:37

    makes sense to me that's what I will be doing

    Daniel · 13/08/2013 at 14:54

    Hawthorn doesn't really have a tagger. Pendlebury VC

    BestCoastEagles · 14/08/2013 at 17:08

    Pendles VC this week for me.

G Unit · 13/08/2013 at 00:03

Jock, I am afraid that someone sprouted a few weeks ago on the show has proven to be an Ultimate Burnman! Trent McKenzie. I have the second highest points in my main league, but due to a couple of bad games ended up in an elimination and thankyou to Trent for helping eject me straight off to 2014 season.
I tried to masterstroke Winderlich on for JJK as a point of difference and was celebrating early as he torched them; then he torched his string and my chances were dashed. Shout out for Boomer Harvey sticking the knife into me on the way out the door, Wayno looking in your direction mate!

    Really · 13/08/2013 at 10:21

    You make your own selections Unit.

      Skippa · 14/08/2013 at 08:09

      Very funny G UNit, enjoyed reading that!

        Favalinko · 14/08/2013 at 11:55

        Some days are diamonds some days are stones. Bad luck G Unit least you had the plums and had a go. Boomers been great this year unfortunately had a bad one last week. Pick yourself up learn from this year and always go with your gut, for the GUT NEVER LIES

          G unit · 14/08/2013 at 12:31

          @Favalinko. It's all about the Gut mate, like how before round one my gut told me switch Roughead to Bartel ( I did not and thus missed his lightning start to season) whilst I then traded out roughead early. It has been a horrible season in that regard, had an itchy trigger finger and off-loaded a few I should not have. However Boomer was the standout Forward pick (whom I did not have) except for D.Martin, went Boomer as my gut does not enjoy neck tats. He will probably drop a 120 this week though, I still like him. Has anyone else been shattered after off-loading Burger and Mumford due to "long term" injuries only to see them run home at 110+ ?

      G unit · 14/08/2013 at 12:26

      Yes, I Really do make my own selections. Thanks for that piece of advice you masterful wordsmith.

        Favalinko · 14/08/2013 at 12:49

        yer hear you with Roughie traded him out for Burger which I am fortunate enough to still have but traded Roughie back 2 weeks ago. learned a lesson there don't trade out prems .Had Zorko aswell but traded him to Rockcliff which is paying off now. Some you win some you loose which makes SC all that more exiting. All the best for the rest of the season and beyond

    BestCoastEagles · 14/08/2013 at 17:11

    Time for Mad Monday G.

Jeepers · 13/08/2013 at 17:14

Hey Jock, just dropped me guts again. It’s a bit of a stinker, much like the call by Wayno regarding Boomer

    Mark · 13/08/2013 at 19:29

    Wah wah

    BestCoastEagles · 14/08/2013 at 08:34

    As long as you did not follow through Jeepers, give Wayno a bit of grace as he has tried his heart of the greater good of the community and got it correct on many occasions. All is not lost on Boomer he will bounce back.

    jockreynolds · 14/08/2013 at 12:04

    Jeepers – you're on fire on the back end of the pant department!

Lochie · 13/08/2013 at 21:00

Who to get in the backline?
T/U: Malceski
T/D: Harry Taylor
My backline is: Hanley, Shaw, Heppell, Houli ‘Traded in player’ (Clisby, Wilson)
I don’t want to get Goddard because my opponent has him so I am looking for a POD. I can get anyone so comment any other suggestions. Thanks.

    throttlefinger · 13/08/2013 at 21:23

    Both are solid and steady. Thompson is another to consider. Playing top teams in finals so you know he'll be getting much action. All three have something to play for so you're going to get good scores, either way. If I had my pick, would go with Mad Malceski. Swans should be coming out fighting mad after Pies depantsing.

    Rocksta · 13/08/2013 at 23:17

    Houli is a POD is he not Lochie?
    Don't want too many as it will leave you exposed, especially given Goddards average.
    I'd go Goddard

    BestCoastEagles · 14/08/2013 at 08:29

    Goddard is solid, he will be a POD for your opponent and a superb one at that. Me personally i would take Goddard.

      Lochie · 14/08/2013 at 09:18

      Thanks guys. Goddard it is.

cam · 13/08/2013 at 22:28

what is happening with kreuser???

    Rocksta · 13/08/2013 at 22:59

    He's likely back this week.
    Considering the Blues are still a chance for the 8 if Essendon gets docked points, or are banned from finals, I reckon he's a certainty.

    jockreynolds · 14/08/2013 at 12:03

    I'm banking on him coming back in Cam! I need the big bugger to come in and perform

    BestCoastEagles · 14/08/2013 at 17:03

    Word on the street the Big Kid will be named the week.

Rocksta · 13/08/2013 at 22:53

I cannot understand why everybody keeps talking about trading in Murphy?
He hasn't scored well all year, cannot handle a tag, and with Juddy and Carazzo now out for the season he will get even more heat.
Yea he's cheap, but considering into second week of finals, so what

    cotchandmurph · 14/08/2013 at 08:57

    He is a premium midfielder, he is my m9 and im happy what he has been doing in the past month, everyone struggles with the crowley tag, and he got 25 possies last week

    BestCoastEagles · 14/08/2013 at 10:37

    I agree Rocksta, Murph is cooked i think the Captaincy might have been a bad choice in hindsight. He is cheap for a very good reason would only suggest him to the coaches with very limited Ca$h, you never know he could still have some sting in the tail.

Gilly · 14/08/2013 at 09:43

I've got 167k and 3 trades and have my head spinning with options so looking for some assistance.

Have Titchell as mid 8 with Crouch on bench.

Is it worth burning a trade to flick Clisby to generate cash which would then let me get Jelwood or Swan?

Or save the trade and go to either J.Watson, R.Douglas or maybe J. McVeigh?

Other thought is to upgrade Staker to Ellis or Hartlett. Staker's run home isn't too bad bad don't think he can score as highly as Ellis/Hartlett.

I have 1 elimination final that I should win the others will be tight. Depending on which options I go would leave me with 1 trade and 20-40k for the prelim if I make it through.


    Daniel · 14/08/2013 at 11:54

    Might as well get rid of Clisby as he won't play the rest of the year, and probably get Selwood.

BestCoastEagles · 14/08/2013 at 10:33

Thanks for the shout out Master JOCK !! Football is like life – it requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work, sacrifice, dedication and respect for your team. Supercoach finals are heating up and the hard decisions are to be made. A few people are having a crack at Wayno on his Hot Tip Boomer, Wayno has been a fantastic asset to the community for the best part of the year. This fantastic site gives us the ability to express our concerns & feelings on all topics (Supercoach & Dreamteam). Us as Supercoach punter's in the end make the decisions ourselves. Let's all rally around each other for the greater of the community and close out the Finals with a winning attitude. All the best fellow Coaches

    Ryan · 14/08/2013 at 10:46

    Spot on BCE and well said.

      Favalinko · 14/08/2013 at 12:24

      Here here BCE . We must remember thou some coaches will be doing it tough this week and asking themselves where did they go wrong. they will be having all sorts of emotions going on and it is easy to blame someone else for their mistakes. They need to have the plums to make their own decisions

    jockreynolds · 14/08/2013 at 12:02

    Majestic statement BestCoast. Majestic. Completely agree with you mate

Ryan · 14/08/2013 at 10:52

I want to trade Gibbs as he has squirrel gripped me for the last time ever. My defence is (Goddard, Heppel, Hanley, Shaw, Taylor, Gibbs & Laird Webster) thoughts will be greatly received. Thanks in advance community.

    Daniel · 14/08/2013 at 11:52

    Only if you have about 3+ trades left. If you do, Mckenzie, Scott D Thompson are players you should consider.

    BestCoastEagles · 14/08/2013 at 16:59

    Have Gibbs as well Ryan, he just does not look interested at the moment. He had a tagging role for a couple of weeks so his score have been down. At the moment he could not get a kick in a stampede. Hope that changes in a hurry. I would stick fast unless you have trades to burn

    PWL · 15/08/2013 at 11:37

    Hold! Gibbs should play MID this week with Judd out

      Ryan · 16/08/2013 at 18:30

      Thanks PWL & BCE going to hold gibbs.

cotchandmurph · 14/08/2013 at 12:46

Hey Jock: my rucks are now Goldstein and roughhead, with Nicholls and currie on the pine, i used to have Kreuzer and Nic Nat, which combo is better. and im worried since both my old rucks got injured my current rucks will, any advice

    Daniel · 14/08/2013 at 15:15

    Wait a week

    BestCoastEagles · 14/08/2013 at 16:54

    Hold this week Aaron, reassess next week never know what is around the Supercoach Corner (Injuries & Resting)

      Favalinko · 14/08/2013 at 17:16

      Your bench is week definitely HOLD, your in the prelim that's your advantage don't take that away from yourself

Watto · 14/08/2013 at 16:05

I would trade on of the kennedy's in a weeks time for maybe Watson,danger or trade in Mayne in the forward line.also think about picking up kreuzer for macevoy but wait a week to trade.

Watto · 14/08/2013 at 16:08

What do you reckon community. Mayne or Martin. I don't care about pod, just who will score more for the remainder of the year

    BestCoastEagles · 14/08/2013 at 16:33

    Dustbin Martin. last 6 week Ave is 109 projected next three weeks, 109, 113, 113 Mayne. last 6 week Ave 103 projected next three weeks 113, 113, 102. . Having said that if it was me Dustbin Martin. Hope this is of some help. Good luck Watto

      Favalinko · 14/08/2013 at 17:18

      Dusty for mine. had him all year and not disappointed

Donald A · 14/08/2013 at 16:25

B) Shaw, Hanley, Gibbs, Goddard, Heppel, Ibbotson (Clisby Thurlow)
M) Ablett, JPK, S.Mitchell, Cotchin, Selwood, Swan, Mundy, Priddis (Mitchell Martin)
R) Minson Goldstein (Witts, Currie)
F) Walker, Harvey, Johnson, Martin, Rockliff, Kennedy (Neade, Daniher)

Have 2 trades left with 50k in the bank, am going for the league win but have to win this week to make the prelim. Should I back my team in and save the trades? Or make an adjustment?
Any help would be greatly appreciated guys!!:)

    BestCoastEagles · 14/08/2013 at 16:43

    Check your opponents team first as it's do or die from hear on in. If you aren't confident i would double trade for Pendlebury or Griffen for your Mid's. Apart from that your team looks good Donald. You have a couple of player that have been down like JPK & Gibbs, hopefully they can turn it around as i have them both in my squad. All the best Donald

      Favalinko · 14/08/2013 at 17:23

      ? mark on Priddas quad again maybe trade him for Pendles and maybe keep a trade up your sleeve if you can

Joe Carnegie · 14/08/2013 at 16:58

still unsure as to what to do – anyone got some tips

(my team is in the above comment, just search for Joe Carnegie)
Appreciate it lads!!!!

Darren · 14/08/2013 at 17:16

I still have 5 trades and a week off. Ideally I'd like to do one trade this week. I normally do my trades Saturday's or Sunday's. BUT I fear If I don't trade before the first kick off on Friday night, I will loose my trade because I have a week off.
Can someone tell me the rules about this.

    BestCoastEagles · 14/08/2013 at 19:25

    Great restraint having 5 Golden trades left. Having a week off you can still trade as normal the rules remain the same, all that happens is you are not playing anyone. So trade until your heart is content. All the best Darren

Favalinko · 14/08/2013 at 17:30

I would trade LEE out for DUSTY and upgrade your ruck but you may need to downgrade to get some more CA$H to do that

Rocksta · 14/08/2013 at 19:43

Thanks Community , and Jock and the Lads for all your help this year ( my second in SC). I'm in the pre-lims of all my 3 leagues ( one which carries an $1800 first prize).
Problem: I don't have any trades left.
This is compounded by the fact that I went the Duffman as a part of my last 2 trades last week as a POD in defence.
Positives: I do have good bench cover with the Luxury of being able to start Buddy as my forward line emergency ( to expose the loophole if he scores well). I did this as the Hawks play in the first game of the round this week and rd 23, and the third game in Rd 22. This gives me great flexibility in my Forward line and mids with emergency loopholes and DPP interchanges.
I am however at the mercy of The Duffman………………..Is he ever going to come good this season?

    PWL · 15/08/2013 at 11:38

    I'm with you Rocksta…. I had initially planned to trade him out but who in their right mind would trade out a bloke about to play against Melbourne?!?!!?

Rocksta · 14/08/2013 at 19:47

Forgot to mention, I also have JJK and as WC play in the first game of Rd 22, I'll start him as the emergency, with Buddy on the field.
I must say though, I really wish I could take 1 of my sideways trades back, as would have been great to have 1 more trade up my sleeve going into prelims.
So, is The Duffman going to get me home as a POD?

Watto · 14/08/2013 at 21:23

Ibbotson, Kreuzer, Nicholls, Franklin all listed as test and I have all three with the likes of Ryder and Clisby out. How do you think out of those four will line up this week?

    Rocksta · 14/08/2013 at 22:19

    Watto, I reckon all the 4 mentioned will line up this week.
    You will know tomorrow anyhow.

liam · 15/08/2013 at 16:15

hi everyone, loving the chat and excitement that the finals brings. i have 1 trade left and can afford to bring in any midfielder depending on trading out Mitchell or Hrovat. trading out Mitchell means i can afford Pendelbury or Selwood but Hrovat will give me most other midfielders as well as leaving coverage on the bench of Mitchell in case someone goes down with injury etc. I had thought of going one of the swans midfielders for a point of difference because the other teams i my finals don't seem to have them. any help appreciated, Liam

PWL · 15/08/2013 at 16:38


Fantasy friends i am thinking of moving on both the JK's this week, talk me out of it if you will!! I have 4 trades left and 230k in the bank

JPK to Pendles
JJK to Mayne/Bartel

Thoughts appreciated

    Daniel · 16/08/2013 at 10:47

    JPK to Pendlebury
    JJK to Bartel

@Jacko2128 · 15/08/2013 at 17:27

Tossing up between getting dusty martin OR steve motlop??

Is motlop a better option as he is in ripper form and is a POD?

Cash not an issue and last trade.

    Daniel · 16/08/2013 at 10:47

    Dustin Martin

nick · 17/08/2013 at 17:54
