  1. Swans says:

    Only Looking at Impey and crouch this game

    • throttlefinger says:

      Those two for sure. Lobbe and Big Sauce I'm interesting in for R2. Solo rucks so plenty of time to breakout. Far for certain but one of them may be a nice sleeper pick.

      • McClungeMagnet says:

        Also interested in jarman Impy and weather he could take jake needed spot come round one.

  2. Grufflez says:

    Eyes on Impey & Polec.
    Interested in seeing how they use Hendo.
    I read an article that stated Polec ''himself'' his admitted to only being able to do about 40% of the preseason training…does he have the fittness required for R1…watching closely

    • Swans says:

      I don’t even know if there midfield has a spot for him. Much better players around that ark that should get games e.g michie, Dunstan

  3. Kevan says:

    Inerested to see how they use Angus Graham with Jacobs playing.

    • McClungeMagnet says:

      I'm pretty sure santo said they would only ever go in with one ruckman in any given match.

  4. Jono says:

    At the moment I have Goldy & Lobbe at the Ruck, very keen to see on how Lobbe & Jacobs play tonight. Might possibly have them two as an R1 & R2 combo.

    • SCaddict says:

      Lobbe is a late withdrawl unfortunately. Jacobs should play though.

      • Jono says:

        Well that’s a bummer! I might have see how he plays next game then. But still keen on how Jacobs play if he’s worth a shot.

  5. scooter says:

    Interested in Sam Shaw currently my d5 should have no problems bein in the best 22 and was averagI g 70 ish in 2012

  6. Rosco says:

    Does anyone know why why Brad Crouch is not playing? SC smokey in my opinion. Hope their just easing him into the season and it's not in jury related.

    • Rosco – He had an achillies injury complaint before Christmas, so he was a week or so behind on his pre-season schedule. He'll play in the Carlton match next week.

  7. Jake says:

    What's the go with lewis taylor

  8. Jordan says:

    Hey guys can I have some thoughts on my team.







    51,000 left in the bank.
    Places where I should save/spend $$$
    Players I should ditch/pick up

    All criticism welcome

    • Footy in me says:

      Not sure about McEvoy and man everyone has that back line that's all 🙂

      • Judd says:

        I'm thinking of taking the punt on McEvoy also, if he stays fit. Hawthorn will be a top team again this year there is no denying that, and if your the number 1 ruckman in a top team he SHOULD atleast score decently, hopefully. Then eventually upgrade Grundy to a premium making big Ben R2.

        That's my plan today anyway, probably change my mind by tomorrow.

      • Philbya01 says:

        Nearly my back line except you've got nine players.

    • Swans says:

      1 to many defenders

    • favalinko says:

      to many bye 8 players in mids also only 1 premium ruck in rnd 8 if bench players don't play

    • Grufflez says:

      Team looks solid but Broomhead/Taylor are injured and won't play R1
      Personally i don't like M.Murphy and think he will average 105 ish..not a cash cow and not a keeper for mine.

  9. Callum says:

    Got my eye closely fixed on impey, Matt crouch and Mitch grigg

  10. Leon says:

    hard to tell with port players as the experience is coming out early, Flynn looks not bad, like newtown. Not sold on polec yet, seems slow

  11. George says:

    Do you guys reckon Murphy's score from yesterday was what we can expect from him this year or was he not trying because it's nab challenge and can he still become a premium this year?

    • WombatsFC says:

      Based on yesterdays efforts when Blues really wanted to win and the game was in the balance Smurph went missing big time. I reckon he wanted to be anywhere but on the footy field 498k might be too much to pay for him.

    • SCaddict says:

      I reckon he's a fairly safe bet from the standpoint that he's not going to lose you any money. Whether he can return to the elite status of 2011 I'm not so sure.

      Oppositions have kind of wised up that if you put him under a lot of physical pressure and beat him up a little his performance suffers. Also with Juddy no longer the top dog in town means he cops the brunt of the opposition's defensive attention.

      But if he's fit and healthy he's still a fairly solid pick who should should get you at least 100-110 a game. Would want to see a better showing in NAB 2 though with other players like Ziebel and NDS putting up their hands yesterday for not much more moulah.

    • McClungeMagnet says:

      You have to assume he was just cuising. Judd didn't cop much attention last year so his absence shouldn't matter.

      • SCaddict says:

        Yeah that's precisely my point MCM. Juddy wasn't the man last year and as such Smurph copped the main tag and his scoring suffered. Also opponents worked him over which probably contributed to his injuries that were impact related and not soft tissue related.

        Back in 2011 when Smurf had his highest output Juddy had just come off a Brownlow and was still the marked man.

        I still think he will be a very good premium scorer but just not assuming he will return to elite status as many people believe will automatically happen. He's in my team right now but by no means a lock at this stage.

    • Grant says:

      TBH I had murphy up until yesterday and put a line thru him. I have grave concerns over his ability to match it with the bigger stronger mids. I reckon malthouse does too. Great player when running on the outside with carlton playing that high speed clearance game but that went with Ratten.

  12. Jordan says:

    Sorry no D.Swallow in line up mistake

  13. Pies2014 says:

    Does anybody know how to log out?lol

  14. NutSack says:

    Power had way tooo many first timers so the game was irrelevant. Its hard for a rookie to shine if everyone else in the team are rookies also. That said Clurey did well score wise.

  15. McClungeMagnet says:

    Matt crouches dream team points by quarter. Lacks the tank 50 in first half 28 in second. With interchange cap that is a problem. Seemed to have an influx of touches early in quarter also. Racked lots of the contested pill, tackled well, liked to handball. Tompson and B Crouch out though.
    Impy: Showed improvement, despite playing on betts later in the match as a learning experience I expect. All10 of his touches were kicks.
    Polec: Got lots of the ball but wasn't overly impressed. Big third quarter swayed his stats.

    Q1. Q2. Q3. Q4. Total
    M.Crouch 2129171178
    J.Impey 312101843
    J.Polec 17 11 42 17 87

    • @HeiroDAB says:

      Doubt matt crouch will play until end of year. Unless god forbid there is an injury to the top tier, or sam kerridge under performs!

  18. Billy says:

    David Mackay is one to watch

  19. derek says:

    i liked the look of the Irishman – Flynn. Hardly had a game of AFL in his life, but has a big body and might turn into a good footballer. Keep an eye on him later in year. Plus is is only $102k

  20. Duncan says:

    What is Everyones Thoughts on Paul Stewart I think he could be a great POD buy this season!
    He Is only $245,900
    Not just that but with a full Preseason!
    He also looked good today scoring 94

  21. throttlefinger says:

    Nice write-up, Barron. Especially at the park. Well done.

    Not sold on Jacobs. Looked good in 1st. Not enough to slot at R2.

    That said, Matt Crouch may not get R1 call but will get in soon. Probably not to worst idea to slot in on bench from the get.

  22. Derek says:

    I thought Sam Colquhoun had a pretty good game. I had him in my team at end of last year and he did alright.
    Awkward price at $293k, but has DEF/MID DDP, had the vest a bit last year. I think he will be in Ports Best 22 this year and worth considering.

  23. CowboysCowards says:

    Luke Thompson is an interesting one. Good 2012 then injured last year. Back to $123k and appears to have been ok vs port. Didn’t see game. Thoughts anyone?

    • Derek says:

      What scores did he get in 2012?

      • CowboysCowards says:

        Small error there. He averaged 65 in 11 games in 2011. Thought it was 2012. Anyway since that post have seen the Henderson has gone down for the season. If fit and we'll Luke thompson could potentially fill the "void" the the great jock reynolds likes us to look for. Will watch but pod rookie and some food for thought.

  24. Mearzy says:

    Hey guys, just found out Ricky Henderson is out for most of the season. He fractured his leg at the end of training after being tackled apparently.

    ” goes the old joke, “And don’t tell me ‘eat right and exercise’ – I did that for a whole day and it
    doesn’t work. Though poorly conditioned people have lost some weight and
    gained some energy using a pedometer, this plan should
    still be considered as simply a launching pad to higher planes of exercise,
    such as cardio classes, inlline skating, martial arts, jogging, race-walking,
    hill-walking, hiking, cycling and use of cardio equipment.
