flesh-for-fantasy-150x150G’day community,

Well, here we are. It’s back. The 2014 premiership season is upon us and I couldn’t be more excited. While it was an enjoyable summer watching Australia give the English a bath in the cricket, it is time to really switch on and enter footy mode.




Months of hard work and dedication, watching all those NAB Challenge games (which sometimes got the better of ol’ Crim here) will come to the fore when Collingwood and Fremantle kick off the 2014 AFL fantasy season.

The return edition of “Flesh for Fantasy” will be split over two weeks. This week we’ll be looking at the players worth getting and worth ignoring in the first group of games. Next week, the same again before returning to its original format for round 2.

This edition will also be different in that because we’re all well aware of the players we must have, I’ve given a couple of PODs worth considering. If you want to jump ahead of the pack early on, you side must be different to everyone elses, ie Mick the Mad Irishman’s SuperCoach team.

Alrighty, let’s get back into it.


Aaron Sandilands (FRE) RUCK– $310,700 SC

  • Next 5 games: COLL (A), GWS (H), HAW (A), ESS (H), SYD (A)
  • 2013 Average: 64

99.9% of sides will already have him, which in that case, ignore what I’m about to say. But if you don’t, I’m here to tell you to snap out of it and get him in. The big fella looks back and his pre-season has been phenomenal, scoring 92 and 156. If you read more into his pre-season, he has not been eased into the season like some have expected. He wasn’t rested at any point, which is a surprise because many, including myself, thought Ross the Boss was going to take a September approach with Sandi – do whatever was necessary to get him to September, even if it included rests. He also was given a contract extension until the end of 2015, and if showed signs of his body ready to cave in, they would’ve held off and assessed at the end of the year.

Looking ahead to his next run of games, he is likely to come up against Grundy or Hudson round 1, Mumford and GWS round 2, McEvoy who isn’t the best tap ruck going around in round 3, Patty Ryder and a rookie in Fraser Thurlow round 4, and MykePyke round 5. They are certainly not your Goldsteins, NicNats or Minsons of the world. He is a serious chance to go BIG early and really get that value up. If you’re not convinced now, you’ll never be.

Jarryd McVeigh (SYD) DEF/MID– $572,500 SC

  • Next 5 games: GWS (A), COLL (H), ADEL (A), NM (H), FRE (A)
  • 2013 Average: 106

The position of D1, for mine anyway, has come down to a battle of 2. Jimmy Bartel would’ve started in a lot of teams early on, but after a majority of time in Geelong’s forward half of the ground, he has dropped out of calculation. This has left us with Mitchell and McVeigh. I’m going with McVeigh here for a number of reasons. Last season, he absolutely smashed his opponents off halfback, with Champion Data ranking him as having the 4th biggest disposal differential in the league. He also won 29% of his disposals in the defensive 50, which means he still got plenty of it in the midfield.

I believe McVeigh also has greater scope to shake the tag. If the opposition coaches decide to shut him out of the game, John Longmire has the luxury of sending him into the midfield, where he’ll be complimenting the likes of Kennedy, Hannebery, O’Keefe, Jack, Parker and Mitchell. Where do you start if you’re a tagger? Against his first 5 opponents last season, he scored 143 v GWS, 150 v Collingwood, 105 v Adelaide, 123 v North and 105 v Fremantle. If form against opposition is anything to go by, he’ll start this season with a bang. Must have.

Jamie Elliot (COLL) FWD– $390,600 SC

  • Next 5 games: FRE (H), SYD (A), GEE (H), RICH (A), NM (H)
  • 2013 Average: 72.2

Before you smash me into tomorrow about Jamie Elliot, just hear me out. If you’re looking for a POD option up forward (and you’ve got plums the size of basketballs), Jamie Elliot could be a worthwhile punt. So far this pre-season he has scored 90 (62% TOG) and 87 (87% TOG). Against Geelong he gathered 17 touches and 9 tackles and 6 I50s, and against Richmond collected 18 touches, 7 marks and 3 I50s. His pre-season form has been exception and having just come out of the “second year blues”, he puts his hand up to be a “breakout” contender.

Elliot was ranked 2nd at the club for marks and when he was involved in the play, Collingwood scored 47% of the time, 2nd to any teammate behind Cloke (stats via Champion Data). Like I said before, you’ll need to a gutsy individual to consider Elliot, but high risk, high reward. He is a breakout candidate and the ultimate POD.

Adam Treloar (GWS) MID – $469,500 SC

  • Next 5 games: SYD (H), STK (A), MELB (H), WBD (H), ADEL (A)
  • 2013 Average: 87

Another potential POD worth looking at is Adam Treloar. One that slips under the radar when GWS kids are discussed, he is one of many ready to go the next level. In a year where many of their kids were feeling the impact of AFL footy, Treloar took his game to another level – averaging 24 touches a game. This pre-season he has shown signs of stepping it up AGAIN, collecting 23 touches and 6 tackles against Sydney (89 SC points in 72% TOG), and then 32 touches, 9 marks, 6 tackles and 4 I50s against St Kilda (113 SC points in 78% TOG).

This year his game will be complimented even more by having Shane Mumford in the ruck to help him and the GWS midfield get first hands on the footy. The first 5 games for GWS are of help, with games against St Kilda, Melbourne and Western Bulldogs. While he is awkward that that price, Treloar is definitely one to consider if you’re looking to go outside the box – which will you need to do to separate yourself from the pack early on.


Matthew Pavlich (FRE) FWD – $437,500 SC

  • Next 5 games: COLL (A), GWS (H), HAW (A), ESS (H), SYD (A)
  • 2013 Average: 81

Unlike the Sandiman, Matthew Pavlich has had a different pre-season. He certainly hasn’t started the pre-season with a bang and could be feeling the effects of a delayed start. He has only managed to score 52 and 75 from just an average of 59% TOG. He is definitely someone Ross will manage through the early stages of the year.

However, don’t rule him out just yet. Come the end of the bye rounds, with significant footy under his belt and discounted value, I believe Pav could be a goer. Fremantle will also ramp it up a gear in the latter stages of the year and Pav could benefit. Definitely worth keeping on the radar, but avoid for now.

Rhyce Shaw (SYD) DEF – $299,400 SC

  • Next 5 games: COLL (A), GWS (H), HAW (A), ESS (H), SYD (A)
  • 2013 Average: 61

I’ve seen many sides entertain the idea of selecting Rhyce Shaw this season given his discount value, but I’m here to tell you no. Please do not touch him. You’re going to do yourself no favours and will backfire. Here’s why.

The last 3 seasons (MINUS 2013) he has averaged 72, 76 and 70. His best season average was 95 back in 2009. 5 years go. Now, factor in that he is coming off a knee reco and is 32. While his pre-season form has been solid, you could get players like Webster (for less) or Suckling (for slightly more) who will do just as good job and has greater upside. I personally wouldn’t entertain idea of Rhyce Shaw. If he does well, good on him, but if he continues to show his pre-ACL injury form, good luck.

Brodie Grundy (COLL) RUCK – $363,C00 SC

  • Next 5 games: FRE (H), SYD (A), GEE (H), RICH (A), NM (H)
  • 2013 Average: 75

The buzz R2 in the early stages of pre-season, many have jumped off the Grundy train and have started chasing after the Sandilands express…and for good reason. I think it is safe to assume Brodie has not had the best of pre-seasons to date. He was ok against Geelong (12 touches, 23 HOs, 83% TOG, 71 SC), but was left frustrated against Richmond and showed signs of pressure being Pies new number 1 (5 touches, 17 HOs, 55% TOG, 16 SC).

The Herald Sun today are claiming that Ben Hudson is a chance to be elevated and given first crack at Sandilands. This is probably in the best interests of Collingwood because I fear Grundy will be decimated by Sandilands. I don’t think he is ready to take the reigns as Collingwood’s number 1, but will probably be forced to shouldered most of their ruckload this year. Don’t ,make him shoulder your SuperCoach ruck load.


Usually I give the SuperCoach punters the key breakeven scores for the round so coaches can see if their players of potential players are going up in value or going down. Because I’ve got no scores to work with, I’m going to give you the top 10 SuperCoach averages for the NAB Challenge from those who feature in this round’s group of games.

  • Gary Ablett (GCS) 158
  • Brett Deledio (RICH) 123
  • Aaron Sandilands (FRE) 116
  • Scott Pendlebury (COLL) 115
  • Tom Mitchell (SYD) 114
  • Nat Fyfe (FRE) 113
  • Nick Malceski (SYD) 106
  • Jared Polec (PORT) 104
  • Jarryd McVeigh (SYD)/Dayne Beams (COLL) 103
  • Brad Ebert (PORT)/Michael Barlow (FRE) 102


Next week I’ll be kicking off this season’s edition of Pub Talk, where the best SuperCoach questions for the week will be posted and answered in Flesh For Fantasy. So make sure you tweet them in at @Mr_Crimmins and it could feature in the article.

Good luck this week community. Hope all the hard work you guys have put in for the season will see big scores and plenty of success. Make sure you tweet me at @Mr_Crimmins or comment below any last minute questions you may have.

Mr Crimmins.


Luke · 13/03/2014 at 18:02

Your timing is impeccable mr crimmins. I am just looking for a pod midfielder with $500k to spend.
Treloar fits the bill. He will now be my m6. Nothing to lose. Thankyou

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:57

    No worries Luke, all the best!

    Billy · 14/03/2014 at 14:15

    Sportsbets fantasy comp doesn’t have many entrants and with $50, 000 in prize money its worth putting a team in. Take a look here – http://aflne.ws/SBfantasyfooty

      K'noath · 14/03/2014 at 18:55

      Just put one in. Thanks. Worth a shot even if its DT scoring and no rolling lockouts

SamuelScoach · 13/03/2014 at 18:11

Don't rule out Pav,

As John Bruyn says Pav will be this years Riewoldt

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:58

    I reckon Pav will be a serious trade in option down the track. Keeping watch on his price, but his early form has scared me off

Callum · 13/03/2014 at 18:11

Great article mate, quick question, I have 625k to spend on M2 and I am very unsure as who to pick. A round 10 bye suits best and I probably couldn't afford to have another round 8 bye player in there, tossing up between: Cotchin, Libba, Watson, Fyfe, Rockliff, Kennedy and possibly but extremely unlikely Keiran Jack. Which one of those do you think is going to score best, forget about price rise and price drops, this person needs to stay in my team all season, so it's just about their scores. BTW my M1 is Gazza.


    The_Darwin_Ducks · 13/03/2014 at 18:30

    Libba or Cotchin for mine

    Matt · 13/03/2014 at 18:51

    Purely based on scoring potential, as you said, I'd go Jobe Watson. Might be down to my little man crush on him, but he's just an absolute machine.

    After him, I'd probably say Liberatore.

    Logic · 13/03/2014 at 19:42

    Should have lilbba and Watson sets up for the byes and keepers all year!

    Bailey · 13/03/2014 at 19:57

    I’d go Rockliff (and am) because after Vossy got sacked he averaged 129 for the rest of the year.

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:57

    Watson is the safe bet, but at value I really like Cotchin. If his calf is nothing major, could explode this year

Matt · 13/03/2014 at 18:23

Renouf's elevation to senior list has got me a tad worried about having the Lobbe & Sandi ruck combo.

Thoughts? Is Lobbe still a valid pick?

    Callum · 13/03/2014 at 18:26

    If he is named round 1, then don't pick lobbe, change him to a jacobs or a ryder or a mcevoy

      K'noath · 14/03/2014 at 18:56

      Renouf isn't named in round 1 and won't be named unless lobbe goes down. Renouf just security with Redden going down on long term injury list. Lobbe will solo-ruck 90% of the time. If you liked Lobbe before this news then stick with it

Zach · 13/03/2014 at 18:31

Whats POD? -.-

    The_Darwin_Ducks · 13/03/2014 at 18:36

    Point of Difference

    Matt · 13/03/2014 at 18:42

    Point of Difference – a player that isnt in many teams, basically.

      Zach · 13/03/2014 at 19:06

      thanks guys!

      GeneralSoreness · 14/03/2014 at 10:01

      Not James Podsiadly ??? 😉

    rumplestilkskin · 13/03/2014 at 23:02

    pay on delivery.

Shaneoo88 · 13/03/2014 at 18:34

What do you think is a good amount of left over cash to have starting this season?

    The_Darwin_Ducks · 13/03/2014 at 18:36

    50,000 ish

      Logic · 13/03/2014 at 19:41

      Exactly the amount you don't win if you don't spend ya cash.

        LukTon · 13/03/2014 at 20:47

        I reckon there is no 'good amount' of cash to end up with once you lock in your team. I would say instead, do you expect that you will need to do some corrective trades in the first 2 rounds?

        I am going in with $50,000 left in the kitty, not by design, but I am happy to let it sit there rather than spending it for the sake of it. My reasoning – I am unsure of a couple of spots (eg. rookies that play next week & Tom Derickx, a couple of midpricers that could go either way, sticking with Brodie Grundy *sigh*). I feel it is advantageous to have this $50,000 sit so that when I do my corrective trades, I have a little more freedom to choose the best suited players if they are a little more expensive.

        I would say, if you are unsure of your team, don't be afraid to go in with a bit of money in the bank – your investment may pay off if your initial stock turns sour!

          K'noath · 14/03/2014 at 18:59

          I agree. For me its just the split round 1 firstly. I have 100k in kitty leading into second week. Leading into week two I'd imagine it would be less than 30k

            K'noath · 14/03/2014 at 19:00

            Just to clarify. 100k left in kitty for second week of round 1. Less than 30k (could be zero) before round 2

    Matt · 13/03/2014 at 22:57


The_Darwin_Ducks · 13/03/2014 at 18:35

Great article Crimmo!!
I'm looking to get jared mcveigh in now over mitchell

my team stands now as



Derrickx/nankervis (depending on whos named)


Thoughts appreciated and sorry if this is the wrong article to post but any help will be much loved

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:56

    I like this side, but be careful with your forward line. Going in with both Rohan and JKH is risky. Might be better to send one of your premiums to Murphy/Thomas and using $$$ to send Rohan to a premium/Higgins

      Jono · 14/03/2014 at 16:11

      I agree totally and I have gone rohan to Higgins

      Thanks Mr crimmins

The_Darwin_Ducks · 13/03/2014 at 18:37


Matt · 13/03/2014 at 18:44

OK, Lobbe's getting the boot after Renouf's elevation and selection. Who would you guys take instead of him? Cant afford the really expensive guys.

Leuenberger, Kreuzer, NicNat, McEvoy, Pyke, Mumford?

Advice would be appreciated 🙂

    Callum · 13/03/2014 at 18:47

    Pyke looks tempting now without a second ruck for him to share it with, could be avery good pick

      Dools · 13/03/2014 at 20:43

      McEvoy Matt, if i thought for 1 moment Dog dog was good I would pick Nic Nat too

        Matt · 13/03/2014 at 23:07

        hmmmmmmm had Pyke in there due to him being the sole ruckman, but now you've got me thinking about McEvoy. At this stage i might go McEvoy…

    Dolner · 13/03/2014 at 21:10

    Renouf is a scalloped dutch cream and will be out of the side as soon a you can say…something

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:55

    I'm going Nic Nat for long term, but McEvoy is a safe bet

    SCdonkey · 14/03/2014 at 14:02

    I'm still not convinced with McEvoy as being solely no.1 ruck for the Hawks, In NAB challenge Hale has took a chunk of Hitouts in NAB1 and in NAB2 he took a bit of it too. What's to say Roughy might also get a bit of hitouts up forward.

    K'noath · 14/03/2014 at 19:01

    don't panick on renouf. He's purely insurance should Lobbe go down as well. Stick with him if you liked him before this announcment

Shaneoo88 · 13/03/2014 at 19:03

I feel my team is settled.

Mitchell, Hibberd, Swallow, McDonald, Clurey, Lagdon, Langford, Cutler
Ablett, Pendlebury, Watson, Beams, Thomas, Aish, Polec, Dunstan, Ellie, Crouch
Mindson, Ryder, Sandiman, King
Dangerman, Martin, Roughy, Caddy, Rohan, Billings, Impey, JK-Harris

    THE SALTSHAKER · 13/03/2014 at 20:11

    You must have some cash left over

      zimmerbd · 13/03/2014 at 22:07

      Most of the left over cash gone on the rucks. Much too much to be spending on that line, especially with Sandi on the bench. Put Sandi on the ground (if you want him) and get rid of Ryder or Minson, and spend the extra cash upgrading rookies in fwd and backline. Otherwise, get rid of Sandi.
      I get the thought behind it, (I think), covering your bases, but no point having three potentially premium rucks, or that much money on the bench on any line.

        Shaneoo88 · 14/03/2014 at 12:14

        Taken your advice. Ditched Minson, will keep Ryder unless Nic Nat is named.

    GeneralSoreness · 14/03/2014 at 12:17

    No Murphy? Use some of the $$ overspent in your rucks to get Murphy.

    Jimmy · 14/03/2014 at 16:45

    Put Sandi in your starting team and trade out Ryder or MInson for Derickx or Currie
    Trade Billings for Higgins
    Get in another back premium like Hodge,Enright or Hanley

Kenny Powers · 13/03/2014 at 19:06

I guess Richie Douglas (Crows) has Jamie Elliot in his side .. his plums are bigger than basketballs at the moment .. poor bugger!!

Clutters · 13/03/2014 at 19:06

Harry Cunningham (MID $123,900) named on field for Swans. Any punters?

    Matt · 13/03/2014 at 19:10

    I would, but there are just way too many MID rookies who I rate ahead of him.

      Wattsieesq · 13/03/2014 at 19:41

      Agree with Matt. HC to wear the vest a bit to begin with.

    spider · 13/03/2014 at 19:25

    He's name on the bench I think … surely vest risk

      Logic · 13/03/2014 at 19:39


    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:54

    He's on my bench

    SCdonkey · 14/03/2014 at 14:07

    On my bench, hoping he gets 5 good games before the bye rounds.

    GeneralSoreness · 14/03/2014 at 15:11

    On my bench, cant ignore form and chance given to him.

Brooke · 13/03/2014 at 19:15

So it looks like pike has got the job for Sydney but who has the job for Geelong?

I Like Pie · 13/03/2014 at 19:27

Who do I not pick out of Aish, Polec, Michie, ellis, Dunstan and Crouch. Only have room for 5 of these

    Clutters · 13/03/2014 at 19:32

    Aish out. too expensive. But just get Polec in and wait until next week to decide.

    Logic · 13/03/2014 at 19:38

    Cut the list down to crouch and aish. See who's named next week the rest will play.

      Joe · 13/03/2014 at 20:24

      Defenitly Keep Ellis, has had great games through preseason, in there best 22, really looks the goods for a great year.

        Dools · 13/03/2014 at 20:46

        Whole heartedly agree Joe, Definate starter for rnd 1

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:54

    Crouch, might be a while off

    SCdonkey · 14/03/2014 at 14:10

    I'd look for JS like dunstan is surely to play all season, Polec, Aish, Ellis and Michie.

Wattsieesq · 13/03/2014 at 19:29

Bennell not named. More mid time for GAJ and Swallow?

    throttlefinger · 13/03/2014 at 21:26

    Hey Wattsie! Think that will be the case. So if one was leaning towards either Pendles or Gaz…

      Wattsieesq · 13/03/2014 at 23:42

      You'd say Pendles because Swallow is taking GAJ mid time lol.

      I'm considering bringing Swallow in, but I have enough mid pricers as it is. If he goes ok, I may bring him in post bye. Good luck for the season ahead.

        throttlefinger · 14/03/2014 at 00:36

        Haha. Leaning that way with Pendles.

        Best of luck to you, my man. Good to see you back in the mix.

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:53

    Yup, and give GCS start the year, I'd go with Gaz over Pendles

So clurey and Langdon named! Do we leave put the gun Langford??? Thoughts?

    Kev · 13/03/2014 at 21:19

    Langdon will go once Ben Reid gets back

      zimmerbd · 14/03/2014 at 10:41

      When is Reld back?

      benisbill · 14/03/2014 at 10:43

      Langdon is a half back flanker, Reid is a key defender come second tall forward.

      Apples and oranges.

Jack · 13/03/2014 at 19:47

Do i pick Webster and Gunston with 3k left or a rookie defender and roughead with 40 k left thoughts would be appreciated

    Leon · 13/03/2014 at 19:57

    would love to hear this answer, in same boat

    I Like Pie · 13/03/2014 at 20:02

    id go roughie and rookie, clurey and Langdon both named this week and are cheap, roughie is a gun

    Dools · 13/03/2014 at 20:50

    Hi Jack the 40K is a tempting mistress…Thats 40K to help correct errors and we will all have them so I thinking keep the coin mate. Never mind whom you have left out. with the money and they preform result is the same pre Rnd 3 so save the coin.

    Avzmo · 13/03/2014 at 21:48

    I feel like both are up for good years (Gunston & Roughie), I feel like Gunston may average 10-15 points lower which is definetely reflected in his score, and there are plenty of good cheap defensive rookies out there that may be worth grabbing.

    Out of these two, Roughie & Clurey/Langdon for me

      Jack · 14/03/2014 at 07:26

      Thanks alot!! That's what I'm going to do now really appreciate it

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:52

    Roughy and rookie defender for mine, Gunston will get greater attention this year which may impact scoring

    K'noath · 14/03/2014 at 19:03

    Webster/Gunston. More $$$ making here with higher combined output

Ryan · 13/03/2014 at 19:50

Watson, Fyfe, Mundy or Jack?

    Jai · 13/03/2014 at 21:02

    Jack, Watson, Fyfe, Mundy in that order

    judd0 · 14/03/2014 at 15:20

    Watson or Fyfe.

Leon · 13/03/2014 at 19:59

cotchin or lids? I worry about the calf for cotch. Or do I go with libba (not sure with macrea also on field). Help!! So pick one; cotch, lids or libba

    THE SALTSHAKER · 13/03/2014 at 20:13

    depends on your bye structure

      Dools · 13/03/2014 at 20:55

      Disagree SALT, pick whom you like 8 rounds of AFL is a LONG long time but thats just my take mate. I would be picking a team member that can score in advesrity so all picks from Leon are valid It come down to personal choice…Me I would go Libba but he is not in my team

        throttlefinger · 13/03/2014 at 21:28

        What an awesome swarm of info, Dools! Thought you'd be taking one off given the whiskycognacfest.

        I like Lids. Silent killer. Sharp in NAB and always a beast out of the box. Very highly considering him. Like Libba because the things he does well, earns big SC points. Goals are only cherries on top…doesn't need them to go 110+.

    Jesse · 13/03/2014 at 20:26

    probably get in libba, with cotchins calf and lids head, i wouldnt be going for him

    Avzmo · 13/03/2014 at 21:46

    I like Cotchin, I've been let down too many times in the past by Deledio who is susceptible to the tag, more often then not Cotchin just plays through it and still posts a healthy score. I remember last year depending on Lids for good scores and he would post 60s and even a score in the 30s if I'm not mistaken. From a premo midfielder, you want a little more consistency then that.

    Azza · 13/03/2014 at 23:14


Jimmy · 13/03/2014 at 20:12

Dom Tyson or a rookie like Ellis, Aish or someone else.
Also Is Dunstan a first teamer for St Kilda

    Avzmo · 13/03/2014 at 21:45

    Dunstan is definetely playing round 1 and for the whole year for Saints.

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:51

    Dunstan a LOCK, and I'd go Polec over all 3. If you already have, Ellis for mine

JB · 13/03/2014 at 20:26

Thoughts on Lemmens?

    Logic · 13/03/2014 at 20:37

    Plenty of cheepies ahead of him

    Doggiesfan · 13/03/2014 at 20:38

    He is a mid in SC better options e.g ellis polec michie, Dunstan

    throttlefinger · 13/03/2014 at 21:29

    Definite POD in the rook area. Not sure if he's going to bear as much fruit as the others. Chances slim, JB.

    give the poor kid a hand

    Avzmo · 13/03/2014 at 21:43

    My personal thoughts are this:

    Backline and midfield are decent.

    Thurlow has not yet been elevated ,perhaps at looking at geting in Max King for the captain loophole?

    I am waiting till the bye round to think about Lance Franklin, hes sown nothing in the pre-season besides by causing doubt, there are so many good options between 420k and 470k that I would pick ahead of Franklin (Eg: Zorko, Grey, Mitchell, Dahlhaus, Gunston, Parker) and then if Franklin is in fine form come the bye rounds, I'll look to bring him in then.

      Jesse · 14/03/2014 at 10:03

      Thanks for that Avzmo, you bloody ripper.

james · 13/03/2014 at 20:35

My team is set,

Expect for, Cotchin or rockcliff..?!

PLEASE give me your opinions guys

    Doggiesfan · 13/03/2014 at 20:36

      Ablett, murphy, beams, thomas, aish, polec, ellis, dustan, crouch,

        Saints2014 · 13/03/2014 at 20:42

        Is this squirrel

          squirrel yes nick

          THomas M4 BAHAHAHAHAAHA

            Avzmo · 13/03/2014 at 21:39

            Thomas will be M5 with the addition of Rockliff or Cotchin, the question that he is asking above. Still in my side my midpricer is M6, each to there own however. I have both Rockliff and Cotchin in my side, they are both guns.

    Logic · 13/03/2014 at 22:33


    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:50

    Cotchin purely on price

Bailey · 13/03/2014 at 20:35

Where do I go to see all the elevated rookies?

    Avzmo · 13/03/2014 at 21:34

    I have also been looking for a list, the best you can do if you are curious is check the team lists on each teams websites. They will have senior and rookie lists so you can see if your rookie has been elevated or not.

      Bailey · 14/03/2014 at 16:50

      Ok thanks mate

Mitch · 13/03/2014 at 20:36

Hi everyone

Is mitch duncan a good selection as a POD or is bernie vince a better option help pleasee ?

Thanks 🙂

    Avzmo · 13/03/2014 at 21:33

    I think you would struggle to find Mitch Duncan in 1 team in 200, Vince will be slightly more prevalent. I feel Vince is more of a sure thing, but if you are a gambler, you could go with Duncan if you really want the POD.

    For me though Vince is more of a certainty and I would pick him over Duncan 9 times out of 10.

      Mitch · 13/03/2014 at 21:58

      Okay thanks so much

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:50

    I like Duncan A LOT, but Vince is the safer bet

Bmac · 13/03/2014 at 20:37

Thoughts on Tom Nicholls, a bit of a POD? currently got sauce jacobs but looking for a POD

    Avzmo · 13/03/2014 at 21:32

    I originally thought that he may be a good POD as well, but over the pre-season he struggled immensely. I'm not sure if he may have a little of the second year blues…

    We know he is getting surrounded by increasingly better midfielders but I'm not sure hes necessarily SC relevant yet. If you are looking around that price range, Mumford has looked good for GWS and Ryder may also be an option?

    Swans2014 · 13/03/2014 at 23:11

    Nothing adds up why to pick him.
    1. Smith will be back
    2. 2nd year blues (possibly)
    3. Not a full preseason

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:49

    Not a fan at price, Zac Smith return might impact scoring

james · 13/03/2014 at 20:38

My team is set,

Caddy or Elliot

    SCBEAST · 13/03/2014 at 20:48

    eliot he will avg 95

    Dools · 13/03/2014 at 21:00

    Hi James …Your team is not set…You asked a question Caddy or Elliot so you have locked 29 What happens if the community tells you nothing…Who would you pick a DPP or Elliot????? Over to you mate…

    Avzmo · 13/03/2014 at 21:30

    Are you comparing apples with oranges? Your talking about 60k+ in price differential, thats like saying Cotchin or Dal Santo?

    I feel like Caddy is well worth the money, I feel like he'll have a massive price rise this year and will average 85+.

    Elliot may well average a few points more, but he does cost 60k+ more. You may also want to consider that the probability is that neither of these players will be in your team at year end. If thats the case, would you want to sacrifice 5-10 points a round average to get maybe 50k more in price rises?

    Food for thought….

Hawks2014 · 13/03/2014 at 20:39

Hey community, just want to know what your strategy is going into the round with the split round

Liam · 13/03/2014 at 20:43

Hello community,
Was hoping to get some opinions on the following;

Which two of these three defenders would you choose?
Hanley, Enright and Hiberrd

Who is your preffered M3?
J.Watson, Barlow, K.Jack, JPK, Libba or Cotchin

Best R1 option?
McEvoy, Jacobs, Pyke or Lobbe

Who is your F3?

Just thought id ask for the communities thoughts, any feedback greatly appreciated.

    Josh · 13/03/2014 at 22:12

    Enright & Hanley, Libba, McEvoy, mine is Parker atm

    Wattsieesq · 13/03/2014 at 22:24

    Hi Liam,

    I'd have Enright and Hibberd, but Hibberd is injured, so I'd be careful to pick him.

    My M3 is Barlow at the moment.

    Neither of those is my R1 but given the choice I'd say big boy

    Titch is my F3.

    Good luck for the season


    Logic · 13/03/2014 at 22:37

    Enright, lilbba because Watson at m2, Jacobs for value think he will equal mcevoy still got doubts about lobbe even though he is a tackle machine, wingard

Samuel · 13/03/2014 at 20:49

Hey community, was hoping to get some opinions on the following:
I have pav F4 and luenberger ruck. No pendles but I have rockliff. I am a massive sweat dog btw

    Wattsieesq · 13/03/2014 at 22:26

    Are you looking for validation from these selections? If you are you shouldn't. Go with your gut. If you've been doing the research then trust your judgement.

    Goodluck for the season.


    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:48

    Balls on the line stuff. Pav I reckon will start slow but work into it. Leuey is due to dominate comp, and Rocky is a chance to score BIG this year

Sully321 · 13/03/2014 at 21:03

      Thanks mitch

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:47

    I like it Sully! Zorko risky but if he returns to 2013, oh boy!!

      Sully321 · 14/03/2014 at 16:29

      Thanks mr crimmins and SCdonkey, the only thing I am a little concerned is my ruck bench your thoughts?

    SCdonkey · 14/03/2014 at 15:07

    Nice looking side Sully. Very safe, i see you've only taken Sandi, Zorko and Higgins as your risks with $38K in the kitty for corrective trade, I think you've naileed it.

Swans2014 · 13/03/2014 at 21:06

G'day there community, thoughts on Jackson Macrae. Got him in there atm but having second thoughts. Any thoghts

    Ocker · 13/03/2014 at 21:33

    Very seriously considered him and was in my team for a long time but I changed my mind and have stuck with Lachie Whitfield. Last years No1 draft pick 100% fit and firing, Had great preseason and they need him and he will provide. Don't think second year blues will bother this bloke he is a gun.
    Make your own decision on that one it is tough.

    Cheers and good luck.

    Avzmo · 13/03/2014 at 21:50

    I have him in my side, and he is in there ahead of Dale Thomas, he is a gun and I think a great POD. I'd put $100 on him outscoring D Thomas this year, unless an injury or something hampers Macrae's efforts

      Ocker · 13/03/2014 at 22:08

      Well said Avzmo, I don't like Thomas this year until he has played at least 2 full games. The only worry I have is what players were missing when Macrae scored well. eg, Griffen and more.

Jye · 13/03/2014 at 21:06

Hey there Gents, got a league that needs filling: 965674
Would love it if any of you guys joined, cheers

    throttlefinger · 13/03/2014 at 21:44

    Right on, Jye.

      Jye · 13/03/2014 at 22:17

      Thanks for joining mate! Should be a great year. Unfortunately just missed out on joining the league code you posted on Crouching's team reveal.

        throttlefinger · 13/03/2014 at 22:32

        I missed out on SCaddict's league too the same way. Hard part about living in NYC. Always a step behind the footy action.

          Jye · 13/03/2014 at 22:52

          Yeah that must be bloody hard. Do you still manage to watch the games though?

            throttlefinger · 13/03/2014 at 23:03

            Friday's and last games on Sat and Sun are easiest. Wake up at 4:30am (which I do already) and watch. Other games I usually watch on replay. If it's a good game I'll sleep for 3 hours then watch. Occasionally I'll have some fellow footy buddies over to watch a game if it's at 11pm game. Or watch a reply game at normal evening time.

            Rolling lockouts are the hardest. Have to set 2 different alarms. Missed one of Gazza's scores because I forgot to move my loop. Lost 50 points. Lesson learned, Jye.

              Jye · 13/03/2014 at 23:10

              I love the dedication, throttle. Great to see that the footy culture is over there in NYC.

              That's super rough, mate. Haha that's it, lesson learned and all the stronger for it this year. All the best, hope it's a good one

                throttlefinger · 13/03/2014 at 23:19

                Same to you, Jye. Look forward to doing battle!

      Great stuff, Duncan!

Mebois · 13/03/2014 at 21:10

Hi guys, it has been a frustrating pre-season and i have changed my team countless times but here it is,

Team Name: Mebois

Salary: $85,800

DEF: Mitchell, Enright, Swallow, B. Smith, Mcdonald, Langford (K. Kolod…, Langdon)
MID: Selwood, Rockliff, Libba, Cotchin, Beams, Tyson, Polec, Ellis (Cunningham, Crouch)
RUC: Jacobs, Sandilands (Derickx, King)
FWD: Danger, Franklin, Titchell, Gunston, Caddy, Mcdonough (JKH, Thurlow)

break down of selections.

DEF: mitchell and enright.no brainer. swallow is POD and last 7 games last year averaged 108 playing trough mid so could break out. brodie smith could breakout aswell and will probably replace ricky henderson. mcddonald landford and langdon are only good rookies. i have chosen kolo because he fits my structure and i think alot of people will trade down to him so i can play langford for 1 game.

MID: selwood will be top 5, rockliff libba and cotchin could go top 10, beams is a bargain, tyson, polec, ellis have great js and can score well, cunningham and crouch are cheapish and can score well.

Ruc: i think jacobs will not return to 2012 form but he wont be as bad as 2013, i think he will be close to 2012, sandi is no brainer, derickx is only decent rookie ruck pretty much and king is for loophole.

FWD: danger is no brainer, franklin is too cheap, mitchell was a mature aged rookie and i think he wont cop a tag with the team sydney has and has js, gunston will be a bigger part of the hawthorn fwd line with no franlin, caddy will brakeout hopefully, mcdonough jkh and thurlow are best rookie fwds.

thank you

    Josh · 13/03/2014 at 22:15

    Dunstan instead of Cunningham

    Logic · 13/03/2014 at 22:38

    Delete start again, you can't be that lucky

    Sarah · 14/03/2014 at 07:44

    I love it! I think it's a great team and that's a killer midfield!!

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:46

    Great side Mebois, might be a touch light on in def but thats where you'll make some coin. I like it

      Mebois · 14/03/2014 at 16:58

      thanks guys. i really dont like the d2 options and i think enright is that player though.

Cooper · 13/03/2014 at 21:14

Liam · 13/03/2014 at 21:18

Just wondering if A.Georgiou is still on the rookie list like he is now can he play senior footy?

    zimmerbd · 13/03/2014 at 22:23

    No, he can't play senior footy if he remains on the rookie list. However, I believe they can upgrade him to the main list any time before team submission next Thursday. Just a waiting game.

    Anyone else, correct me if I'm wrong.

      @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:45

      Nah you're spot on Zimmer. Aiden Reilly will go to LTI for Georgiou I assume

        K'noath · 14/03/2014 at 19:05

        Either King (ruck) or Georgio will get upgraded at some point (hopefully before r1 w2. If you have both then the other will be good Capt loophole

Dogs · 13/03/2014 at 21:20

So what are people's thoughts on locking in bench rookies?

For the defence Clurey and Langdon named on field , is it worth locking both in now in case there are no others next week, or just 1 and hope georgiou or Langford get a gig.

Midfield, I'm set, pretty sure all my rookies will get a game

Rucks- no rookies named so no options than to wait and hope thurlow gets a run.

Forwards , no else but McDonough named, although he's on the bench and will probably get the vest, guess I will lock him in though as there will not be much on off next week either?.

Thoughts, what are your plans ?

fourbells · 13/03/2014 at 21:25

The database is currently down for maintenance. Please try again shortly. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Gonna see a lot of problems this year

    Ocker · 13/03/2014 at 21:45

    Which database are you talking about? mine works fine. But agree there will be problems this year.

Avzmo · 13/03/2014 at 21:25

So with the lockout fast approaching, does anyone have a run down of what rookies might be selected in the second week?

I currently have the folllowing rookies in my side, all of which I am confident will be playing in round 1, and hopefully for a while after that.

DEF: McDonald, Clirey, Langdon
MID: Michie, Polec, Ellis, Dunstan
RUC: Derickx (King – but he is my loophole, so bankng on him not getting a game)
FWD: Rohan, Kennedy-Harris, Impey

I have got a few rookies from the first four games just so that I have the assurance that they will play.

In defence I'm unsure to whether Georgiou will be elevated, and Langford may be named but can't be sure. I know Clurey will probably play until at least when Carlisle comes back so I'm happy with that, and also it appears that Langdon has cemented a spot in the side.

All four of my midfield rookies are guns in the making and will play round 1, barring any strange circumstances. And there are definetely plenty of midfield rookies who will get plenty of playing time this year, if only some had FWD status as well.

Derickx I thin has it over Nankervis and Naismith at this stage, also Thurlow hasn't been elevated, and not sure what Curries job security is like with Majak hanging around. Not aware of any other great up and coming rookies at RUCK who will be getting a few games early in the season.

In the forward line there is a problem just because of the lack of forward rookies this year. Jarman Impey has been playing solid and is playing round 1, while Rohan isn't really a rookie but is rookie priced, and I'm confident he will avoid the vest at Sydney. Kennedy-Harris was the best of a bad bunc of forward rookies, and I'm hopeful he will get a game early on, Jock seems to like this kid and I can understand why, but I never know what kind of transitional rules Roosy will bring in at Melbourne and play some rookies, and may want more to come up through the VFL.

If anyone has any further information on rookies please post below, but otherwise, hope I may have helped some people with their rookie selections.

    Dogs · 13/03/2014 at 22:29

    Same questions I have. I think derickx has been named as emergency, so there are no rookie rucks named this week , makes me happy in my choice of Pylke as R1 tho.

    I think I'm going to lock in 1of either clurey or Langdon in defence, and McDonough in forwards, leaving a space in each hoping georgiou /Langford def and JKH forward to fill the other 2 spots

Ocker · 13/03/2014 at 21:26

Nick Maxwell predicted Jamie Elliot to be a star early After a great preseason and I tend to agree with him. Has been in my team from the start as a POD so you can all jump on now or wait 2 weeks and waste a trade. By the way I am a Richmond man but really like this kid. I just wish he would get rid of the orange show off boots.

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:44

    Agreed Ocker, he is a big POD and looks to be playing a high HF/mid role given how many times he's pumping ball I50.

Billy · 13/03/2014 at 21:48

What are peoples thoughts on Clinton Young? Good POD and cheep. Will play most games if he stays fit and doesn't injure himself.

    Ocker · 13/03/2014 at 21:50

    You have said it yourself Billy, Risky up to you if you want to take the gamble.

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:39

    Not cheap enough to be considered for mine. Missed A LOT of footy

oliverfisher · 13/03/2014 at 21:55

Vince and Fasalo


M. Wright and Tyson, then upgrade georgiou to Laidler

Do people think Laidler will keep his spot this year?

    Avzmo · 13/03/2014 at 22:09

    Playing round 1 is definetely a good start for him, i didn't know if he would be top 22 material, if he can play well he will stay in, its on his shoulders now.

    SCaddict · 14/03/2014 at 02:04

    I think it's his spot to lose. Horse really seems to rate him and has been impressed by his preseason so he should get a decent run in the early part of the season.

    However if he has a couple of ineffective games or his opponents get off the leash then the Swans do have alternative avenues. Alex Johnson is waiting in the wings and will play reserve footy this weekend.

    Reid and LRT can also play in defence if Laidler can't hold his own. Tippett and Goodes will have to be squeezed back in to the side at some point soon too. And not sure what is going on with ROK either so he may win his spot back as well.

    So overall would say Laidler's JS is reasonable but far from assured.

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:38

    Wright and Tyson now Fas isn't in side

JB · 13/03/2014 at 22:07

Thoughts on M Crouch will he get game early?

    Ocker · 13/03/2014 at 22:25

    Sanderson said before NAB Challenge that he would not play the Couch brothers together. We can only hope that he has changed his mind. Brad did not start last year until round 2 played till round 4 and then didn't play again until round 11.
    I believe he is sure to get plenty of games and they have a lot of injuries as well. He is locked in my team whether he plays round 1 or not.


Oliver Queen · 13/03/2014 at 22:11

Thoughts on coniglio?
Had 48% game time with an average of 67 with scores of 89 and 91. Does start seasons well

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:37

    Interesting, another breakout candidate at GWS?

Shard · 13/03/2014 at 22:25

Is it too risky to have both Caddy AND Elliot in the forwardline?

    hmmmmm · 13/03/2014 at 22:33


    Ocker · 13/03/2014 at 22:37

    Depends on your structure and available funds. But I would certainly consider both, Rookies could be hard to find. Structure of team and forward planning are the keys this year depending on whether you want to win league or the money.

Frank · 13/03/2014 at 22:27

Rockliff or Cotchin?

    zimmerbd · 13/03/2014 at 22:31

    1.What's your bye structure like? Rockliff 10, Cotchin 8.

    2. I'm a bit worried about Cotchin's calf too. It's a niggly injury. Having said that, watching him in the first half against Essendon, he looked primed. It's a tricky one.

    Take those two elements into consideration, and see what you come up with.

    (Edit: just noticed there's a discussion above re. these two players. More opinions there.)

    Ocker · 13/03/2014 at 22:34

    Cotchin only for the fact that he is under price. Rockliff may not get the midfield time everybody expects and is too pricey in my opinion.


Tom · 13/03/2014 at 22:33

I’ve had Ben Cunnington in my team since last year, is this a bad decision. My miss are:

Ablett, Libba, Rockliff, Cunnington, Beams, Michie, Polec, Ellis (Dunstan, Langdon)

If cunnington is a bad decision, who is a better option for the M4 position around the same price? (500k)

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:37

    I don't think Cunningtom is a bad call. Ultimate POD, down pecking order at North, clearance king, may get a run in next week's Flesh

Michael · 13/03/2014 at 22:33

Here's my latest version, keen on everyone's thoughts:

DEF: McVeigh (MID), SMitchell (MID), Enright, Suckling, McDonald, Cameron (Clurey (E), Langdon (MID))
MID: GAJ, Fyfe, JJK, Murph, Beams, Daisy, Polec, XEllis (Dunstan (E), Cunningham)
RUC: Pyke, King (C) (Sandy (E), Derickx)
FWD: Danger (MID), Martin (MID), Titch (MID), Caddy (MID), Higgins, Rohan (McDonough, Kennedy-Harris (E))

Decided I couldn't do without Danger so made room for him, got rid of Dixon & Turlow as have decided that Sandy doesn't need back up, put in Titch and Derickx in their places. Hoping Cunningham can be the Titch of 2014 for the Swans! Cameron from GC named in line up so taking a punt on him, don't know a lot about him though. This team will pretty much be locked in for me I think. Other rookies will def get game time.

    Michael · 13/03/2014 at 22:59

    By the way, using King as C loophole with VC on Beams as POD – if Beams scores 130+ will keep as is, if less than 130 will put C on GAJ.

Kerrigan · 13/03/2014 at 22:48

Risky back line Mick but otherwise pretty good. Any opinions/criticises of my team will be greatly appreciated.
Backs: Mitchell, Hanley, Simpson, hurn, Webster, McDonald, Langford & clurey
Mids: rockliff, liberatore, cotchin, murphy, beams, Ellis, polec, dunstan, michie & Langdon
Rucks: Ryder, sandi, derickx & thurlow
Fwds: danger, Martin, gunston, dalhaus, Higgins, rohan, impey & ken Harris

Risky no ablett or pendles but both will face Crowley straight up and I just can’t justify nearly $700k on 1 player. I have doubts on murphy whether he can handle the tag. Ryder will be shipped off as soon as I build a bank. Gunston and dalhaus are risky but risk = reward. These 2 both have big massive ceilings.

    Michael · 13/03/2014 at 23:02

    like Simpson & Hurn in DEF, nice POD there. Going in without either GAJ or Pendles a bit risky as you said, how do you plan on bringing them in? Are you going for league or $50K? I'm going the latter so needed to have one of them straight away or risk needing to come from too far back.

Wattsieesq · 13/03/2014 at 23:12

Inside the final 24 hours before lockout and I'm becoming delusional. Considering burnman Higgins. Please fly kick me Crouching One.


    Ocker · 13/03/2014 at 23:23

    Consider yourself fly kicked, Better options and security than that. Do you want me to sing you a song?

      Wattsieesq · 13/03/2014 at 23:37

      Thanks Ocker, I needed that. Please go ahead and sing me burnman song. Welcome.

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:36

    I'm considering him too now…Going cold on Rohan…

    SCdonkey · 14/03/2014 at 14:31

    Yeah, I've gone with Higgins over Rohan as my F6

    GeneralSoreness · 14/03/2014 at 14:48

    Higgins is a LOCK!

Ocker · 13/03/2014 at 23:25

Sure Jock will sing along too.

Henster · 13/03/2014 at 23:30

is there any reason why no one appears to have Nick Reiwoldt in their side given the easy draw that the saints have early

    Ocker · 13/03/2014 at 23:36

    The only reason I can think of is lack of delivery, but he will be all over the ground and saints are favorites for the wooden spoon. Have given plenty of thought but I will wait at least 2 games and make a corrective trade if I am wrong. Too pricey. Looking at season long term.


      Dale · 13/03/2014 at 23:47

      Agreed, wait and see. But I waited all last year and missed the boat.

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:35

    Proven player I know, but he's a key forward in his 30s. He said himself that he'll be managed through the year and with finals no chance for the Saints, he may not play 22 games

Dale · 13/03/2014 at 23:46

I know there’s a glut there but I’m struggling to pick between T Mitchell, Dahlhouse and Zorko… Which one?? Any one better at the price?

    Ocker · 14/03/2014 at 00:16

    Out of the three I would go with Mitchell, But in saying that I have neither. Caddy, Elliot. Depends on who you already have in your forward line and whether you are going for league win or the money

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:35

    Tom Mitchell for mine, going on pre-season form the kid doesn't know what 2nd year blues look like. Zorko worries me

Osh · 14/03/2014 at 00:05

Should I go for Kade Simpson or Corey Enright

    Ocker · 14/03/2014 at 00:31

    Interesting question. Couple of years age difference so both getting on a bit like me. Do not have either in my team at the moment and simpson could be a good POD but Enright has a better Standard Deviation and slightly better average and price.


      Osh · 14/03/2014 at 09:15

      Thanks for that

    Osh · 14/03/2014 at 09:17

    If he is should I go for Hanley or kade simpson

      Osh · 14/03/2014 at 09:41

      That's for Hibberd

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:34

    Enright for mine. Consistent as they come

Roo Boys · 14/03/2014 at 00:12

Big day ahead! Home work done, team settled, ready for the rolling lock out! Pendles, Beams and Sandi up tomorrow night for the opener. Thorw the C on Sandi tomorrow for a wager Few other boys to watch closely over the first half of the first round, hand ready at the trade button for the next few weeks ahead!

Thanks to Jock and the Boys, worth your weight in gold fellas. Love the team reveals, mixed bag this year but thats what makes this competition so great!

All the best lads, hope you have a top season!

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:33

    Good luck Roo Boys, can't wait for tonight. Sandilands to go ape s**t on Grundy, the poor kid is in a world of trouble. A lot putting the VC on Sandy, but given form the C is more than justified.

      SCdonkey · 14/03/2014 at 14:43

      Q Lynch named as Emergency, what are the chances the Pies will put him in to go up against Sandi to ease a bit of pressure off Grundy. How will Sandi score affect it, if this happens. I'm worried if it affects him a lot as I was thinking of using him for that VC Loophole via King.

        Roo Boys · 14/03/2014 at 14:59

        VC will be a smarter choice, and play the loop hole if he has a big night. I think the pre-season excitement got the better of me wanting to put the C on him straight up!

The Mullet · 14/03/2014 at 00:22

arghhhhhhhhhhhhh…..19hrs to first lockout…………………………………arghhhhhhhhhhhhh……running around in circles………………rethinking my whole team………………… arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…… sorry……….going for a cold shower………and a cheech & chong size….arghhhhhhhhhhhh…….18hrs 55min to lockout………..

    Ocker · 14/03/2014 at 00:37

    Settle down Mullet, Have a hair cut and put it downstairs. Do not panic everyone is here to help. We are still trying to talk Higginbothom out of taking Higgins. And you think you have a problem. Ha Ha. Let's sing a song and go for a walk and talk.

Cozza · 14/03/2014 at 01:10

Any thought on Martin over Franklin?

I have $180k left in kitty and forwards are Dangerfield, Franklin, Parker, Caddy, Higgins and Rohan (int Taylor & Kennedy-Harris). This is my weakest line – happy with the rest of my team, but also fairly confident with Caddy and Higgins scoring well and generating some good cash.

Best to spend the extra $60k to upgrade Franklin?

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:32

    I do. Franklin is a key forward and I worry that he'll pump out 150 one week, then 80 the next. Martin, despite me not being his biggest fan, will be more consistent now Dimma will be playing off HB more often. Can also kick goals too.

Big G · 14/03/2014 at 01:10

Looking to fill 7 spots – 365912

All the best for the season!

scooter · 14/03/2014 at 04:32

If georgiou does get upgraded for Riley being put on th lti do you think he will increase in price enough before Riley gets back

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:31

    I do, he'll have a crazy low breakeven coming off the rookie list.

Bundybear · 14/03/2014 at 05:33

6 spots still available in the league. Feel free to join. Join code 923402. Thankyou

throttlefinger · 14/03/2014 at 07:25

Top notch lead-off F4F, Mr. C!

McV insights are sure to shake Mitchell from some D1 spots. (and yes, I may be applying the 3rd person).

Treloar has been tempting but think he's a year away from being a staple of every SC line. This year the ride won't be as bumpy, but will be bumpy. See how he's holding up post R10.

Look forward to the pub talk coming back! And good luck with your team.

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:30

    Thanks for the feedback, Throttle. Agree RE Treloar, he'll average 90+ this year. Reckon if you're going in with Vince, might be worth considering Treloar instead.

    Cannot wait for Pub Talk too, reckon it'll be bigger than last year

DJ1985 · 14/03/2014 at 07:38

Caddy or Pavlich

And thoughts on B.Griffiths as D5

    Garglesnarf FC · 14/03/2014 at 08:45

    That is one heck of price difference to do a comparison! Here’s my take, If its for D3/4, then Pav as he will likely score higher. If its for D5 then Caddy as its cash generation.

    I have both Pav at D4, Caddy at D5 but I am iffy on Caddy and may downgrade him to a rookie if a tasty one pops up next week.

      Garglesnarf FC · 14/03/2014 at 08:47

      of course I meant F4 and F5, too much time staring at screens.. too tired… need more coffee…..

        DJ1985 · 14/03/2014 at 09:18



        It is for F5

        Will leave me with Danger/Martin/Roughy/Mitchell/(Pav or Caddy)/Rohan (Kennedy Harris/Some other rookie)

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:29

    Caddy and no on Griffins

Garglesnarf FC · 14/03/2014 at 08:22

Is Clay worth considering as D8 instead of the yet to be upgraded Georgiou? Will he continue to get game time or is he a major vest candidate?

    PJ8 · 14/03/2014 at 09:31

    It's a hard one…

    Pick a rookie just cause they are named this week, or take a risk and go for a player who you hope to play next week.

    I don't know a lot about Clay Cameron but by the looks he is named at CHB and key position backs don't normally score well. But he will make you money and a score of 50 is better than a 0 if Georgiou dosen't play.

Osh · 14/03/2014 at 09:15

Is Hibberd still injured?

    PJ8 · 14/03/2014 at 09:28

    Yes on the most recent injury list it says out for 3 more weeks.

      Osh · 14/03/2014 at 09:38

      Who do I replace him with

        PJ8 · 14/03/2014 at 09:41

        Who do you already have? and how much to spend?

se4no · 14/03/2014 at 09:18

Haven't seen one bit of talk about Texas…

Texas Walker $299,500 !! Bargain!! THOUGHTS??

    PJ8 · 14/03/2014 at 09:26

    Not due to play until approx mid-season.

      Derek · 14/03/2014 at 10:13

      might see him play before round 8, maybe?

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:27

    Still a fair way off. Good downgrade option though later

PJ8 · 14/03/2014 at 09:26

Which one to play on the ground?

Langdon or Clurey?

    jimbotraralgon · 14/03/2014 at 09:58

    for what it is worth, I have decided on Langdon.

    for some reason I think he has more job security although I can't base this on any hard facts

    Derek · 14/03/2014 at 10:12

    Langdon. DPP.

    Sarah · 14/03/2014 at 11:20

    I'm steering clear of Clurey. Looks like he's cover for Carlisle.

Yoshi · 14/03/2014 at 09:27

If I’m looking to cash in on my rookies later on to make a bit of cash, is 7 starting rookies to many?? Thoughts would be appreciated

    Derek · 14/03/2014 at 10:11

    last year I had a mad amount of rookies. By the end of the season my team value was massive and I did very well in the leagues, BUT my overall rank was poor. Too many rookies wont give you good score, but will give you cash. what do you want?

      Yoshi · 14/03/2014 at 11:55

      by the end of the year did you end up with majority of premiums?

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:28

    2-3 for mid, then maybe 1-2 for backline/forward. So maybe 5-6 probably ideal number.

Osh · 14/03/2014 at 09:39

Tom Mitchell or Dwayne Zorko

    PJ8 · 14/03/2014 at 09:41


    jimbotraralgon · 14/03/2014 at 09:56


      Wattsieesq · 14/03/2014 at 12:10

      Dwayne? Never heard of him lol


    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:26


Ryan · 14/03/2014 at 09:39

Caddy or M. Wright?

    PJ8 · 14/03/2014 at 09:41


    jimbotraralgon · 14/03/2014 at 09:56

    also agree caddy

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:26


jimbotraralgon · 14/03/2014 at 09:42

so can anyone help me with F7 and 8?

I have McDonough and JKH and I think they are both big vest candidates.

What are other people doing?

    Donotello · 14/03/2014 at 09:56

    Some Options:
    Higgins, Rohan
    Caddy, Rohan
    Wright, Rohan

    If you got more cash:
    Caddy Higgins

    Accept you will need to trade higgins when he hurts himself, and just enjoy the points until he evetually does then trade ass off.

      jimbotraralgon · 14/03/2014 at 10:04

      thanks mate,

      unfortunately, I dont have that much money to have wright and Rohan sitting on the bench.

      need F7 and F8 to total on more than about $280k.

        chandanrajdb · 14/03/2014 at 11:44

        Have you got G Rohan…..Good JS and will increase in price slowly, since he is not a good SC scorer…..McDonough i am not sure on this guy, reason is he might be out of the team once Jake King comes back and also looks more likely a vest candidate……..IMO…..

        ATM i have got G Rohan and JKH on my bench……


    Derek · 14/03/2014 at 10:09

    i'm going to stay with Taylor. I like that he has the DPP and he will get plenty of games. not convinced on the other contenders as long term players

      jimbotraralgon · 14/03/2014 at 11:20

      cheers Derek.

      After talking to a mate at work and your great feedback, I think I might flip back to Lewis Taylor and wait out his injury.

      Actually thinking of doing the same with KK up back? try and save the trade that everyone will need to make to get him in once he starts playing. Hopefully I can get enough coverage out of Langdon up back and JKH up forward till KK and Taylor return from injury.

      is this folly?

    Dogs · 14/03/2014 at 10:19

    I have McDonough and JKH for now, waiting to see who gets named next week

    Ruck rookies have me worried since I'm rolling with sandi R2 , hopefully someone gets a run next week , and 95% of the population will be in the same position anyway

Donotello · 14/03/2014 at 09:50

Who do you think will be the following players of 2014: My guesses below, feel free to join in!

The Patrick Karnisis (dissapointment after strong NAB): Luke Webster

The Jaguar Omeara (high scoring rookie): James Aish

The Gary Ablett (Highest Scoring): if not Ablett again, Rockliffe.

The Charlie Dixon (Always hurt, misses many games,dies): Higgins

The Bret Goodes(Mature Age Recruit Gun): Jared Polec

The Libba (midpricer turned premium): Jasper Pittard

The Bryce Gibbs (Burnman): Marc Murphy

The Dan Curry (Everyone has, never plays): Dan Curry again.

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:26

    hahahah brilliant list, pretty much spot on. I'm gonna go Pendlebury for Gaz Award. Spot on about Webster though, I've got him but has a big Patty K feel about him

Fourbells · 14/03/2014 at 10:01

Wright, Caddy, Dalhaus. What are the best 2 with maximum scoring. Thoughts would be appreciated

    jimbotraralgon · 14/03/2014 at 10:05

    will be close but in order…caddy, wright, dalhaus IMO

    chandanrajdb · 14/03/2014 at 11:48


    Dahlhaus > Caddy > Wright……


    GeneralSoreness · 14/03/2014 at 11:50

    Wright, Caddy, Dalhaus imo.

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:25

    Wright and Caddy

Derek · 14/03/2014 at 10:20

I have decided to go for Quality, 24 carrot gold, not mess around.

INS: Pendelbury, StevieJ, McVeigh, Jacobs, Franklin

OUTS: Martin, Murphy, Enright, HMac, Kennedy

    Garglesnarf FC · 14/03/2014 at 10:28

    Enright is THE most consistent backman over the past 5-6 years, and therefore the lowest risk. Ignore him at your peril.

      Derek · 14/03/2014 at 10:36

      would you have Enright or McVeigh?

        Garglesnarf FC · 14/03/2014 at 11:11

        Enright, proven track record over McVeighs one good season. Historically only Goddard and Enright have been able to rank in the top 10 defenders two seasons in a row.

          @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:24

          +1, and Enright is 70k cheaper. I've got both, but make sure Enright was in

    Dogs · 14/03/2014 at 10:34

    Guts telling me franklin is gonna be a dud for at least the first half of the season, I hope my guts wrong as I'm a Sydney supporter

      Derek · 14/03/2014 at 10:38

      I'm a hawk supporter and I suffered with him in my team for most of last year. I think the move to the swans will be the best thing for him.

      Pauly · 14/03/2014 at 10:38

      Agreed Dogs woof woof

Pauly xx · 14/03/2014 at 10:38

Fellas how are we boys, thinking about old mate chrissie masten, cheers boys

    Jai · 14/03/2014 at 11:18

    i locked him in as a POD for this season last August. get him in

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:24

    I really liked what I saw in NAB Challenge. Goal kicking mid, will be POD. Worth considering

Derek · 14/03/2014 at 10:39

StevieJ has 4.39% ownership. POD

Nishy · 14/03/2014 at 10:41

Gday Boys, having a rucks problem, who do I go as R1 big boy mcevoy, mumford, lobbe, pyke, ledenguber,?
Cheers Boys love the podcast its bloody inspirational brings tears to my eyes watching you lads develop into grown men, ive been playing this game for 25 years and Iove it. Jock mate would love to have you and crouching over for dinner one time cheers guys love your work.

Bellahawks · 14/03/2014 at 10:45

Love the work, always insightful! 152471 if anyone still looking to join an additional league.

89k · 14/03/2014 at 11:24

Ellis or Robertson boys? I was quite confident in Ellis but then this Robertson kid has popped up outta nowhere. What's the deal?


Josh · 14/03/2014 at 11:49

DEF: J.McVeigh, P.Hanley, D.Swallow, M.Suckling, J.Webster,L.McDonald, – T.Langdon, T.Clurrley
MID: T.Rockliff, T.Libertore, T.Cotchin, M.Murphy, D.Beams, J.Aish, J.Polec L.Dunstan – M.Crouch, L.Taylor
RUC: M.Lobbe, A.Sandilands – F.Thurlow, M.King
FWD: P.Dangerfield, D.Martin, C.Dxon, T.Mitchell, J.Caddy, G.Rohan – J.Kennedy-Harris, J.Impey

Looking to upgrade Murphy to GAJ after round 8, L.Taylor is on bench only because of FWbackup for SandiD/Mid so I can bring Caddy/Mitchell into Mid, Dixon is in FWD only as backup to Sandilands

Thoughts would be great thanks…

    matthewjsampson · 14/03/2014 at 12:51

    I like the set up with all the swing players, but I think you'll regret not starting with GAJ or Pendles.

    How much cash do you have left? Could you downgrade an Aish and upgrade Rockliff?

      @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:23


      Josh · 14/03/2014 at 17:08

      Got $200,000 in the bank

GeneralSoreness · 14/03/2014 at 11:53

Clurey or Langdon – why?

Thanks in advance.

    PJ8 · 14/03/2014 at 12:10

    I can see Langdon being more of a running half backer so I'd go him. Clurey seems to be replacing the injured Carlisle which is more of a lock down role

      89k · 14/03/2014 at 12:36

      But will Langdon get the same opportunity as Clurey?

        @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:23

        I'd go Clurey because unsure if Langdon will be in side once likes of Reid and Fasolo come back. Clurey I can see hanging round for a bit longer

cuddlz88 · 14/03/2014 at 11:57

Webster or laidler????

    GeneralSoreness · 14/03/2014 at 12:05

    Webster has a bigger upside imo.

      PJ8 · 14/03/2014 at 12:08

      I'd go Webster. Should get a bit of Mid time. Laidler will be restricted deep down back

PJ8 · 14/03/2014 at 12:04

Libba or Cotchin?

Don't care about byes, just want the best scoring one…

    GeneralSoreness · 14/03/2014 at 12:14

    Very tough, both jets. Libba will stay mid whilst Cotch likely to rest forward with Dusty doing sweep half back role. Libba for me as a clearance and tacking machine wont have a bad score. Cotch may go large on some days but i expect Libba will have higher year end average.

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:22

    Cotchin worries me with his calf, but I"d go him over Libba. Want one more season from Libba before he locks himself in my side for next 10 years

PJ8 · 14/03/2014 at 12:04

Also Wingard or Roughead

    GeneralSoreness · 14/03/2014 at 12:10

    I would have to go wingard of the two, but thats only because I have a no Key Forward policy at seasons start. I dont have either in my team, both wait and see prospects imo.

      @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:21

      Im with Soreness, Wingard purely on no key forwards. Also WIngard is clutch so he'll be scoring big late in games

    Derek · 14/03/2014 at 13:09

    really good team….until I got to M Wright. seriously…I like it a lot.

      Lee Underwood · 14/03/2014 at 14:15

      Who would put in Wright spot

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:20

    I like this side a lot. Might be a bit too much cash spent on both Ablett and Pendles, might be worth dropping one day and investing elsewhere. For other than that, quality side

Nishy · 14/03/2014 at 12:23

Gday Boys, having a rucks problem, who do I go as R1 big boy mcevoy, mumford, lobbe, pyke, ledenguber,?
Cheers Boys love the podcast its bloody inspirational brings tears to my eyes watching you lads develop into grown men, ive been playing this game for 25 years and Iove it. Jock mate would love to have you and crouching over for dinner one time cheers guys love your work.

    GeneralSoreness · 14/03/2014 at 12:25

    All reasonable choices McEvoy, Burgers and Lobbe all favoured over Pyke and Mummy however they would be a POD.

    Adam · 14/03/2014 at 12:26


      @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:19

      Yeah from that group McEvoy for mine

cuddlz88 · 14/03/2014 at 12:46

Webster or laidler????

artful_dodger · 14/03/2014 at 12:59

Any thoughts on my current team? Thanks in advance

McVeigh, Mitchell, Hanley, Webster, McDonald, Georgiou (Clurey, Langdon)

Ablett, Fyfe, Cotchin, Pestia, Beams, Tyson, Aish, Dunstan (Cunningham, Robertson)

McEvoy, Sandilands (Thurlow, King)

Dangerfield, Martin, Wingard, Parker, Caddy, Rohan (JKH, Impey)

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:59

    I like this, especially pick of Presita. POD pick. Forwardline sound, back line has potential to make money. Looking good

      artful_dodger · 14/03/2014 at 15:03

      Thanks Crimmo, am I missing out not having Polec?

Daniel · 14/03/2014 at 13:03

I was waiting for rookies to be named, now that they have, I have a grand total of $0.00 left to spend with all playing rookies. Is having 0$ to start the season stupid? or is having playing rookies a priority over the 20 odd thousand id save?

goodluck for the season!

    @Mr_Crimmins · 14/03/2014 at 13:18

    Having $0 is not stupid at all. Many will be in similar boat given the lack of mid/rookie priced player in def/fwd. Plenty of opportunities will present itself to make $$$ as the year goes on

    SC Legend. · 14/03/2014 at 13:19

    Hahahah, that is funny man!
    I wouldn't be too fussed about it, although it is ideal to atleast have some money left.
    However, if all your rookies are playing you're going to have cash cows becoming nice and plump and ready for culling with the first lot of byes which you can easily make money back 🙂
    Good luck for the season man.

    PJ8 · 14/03/2014 at 13:19

    The only reason you would want a little bit in the bank is for correction trades. If you think you will not need correction trades I wouldn't worry.

DJ1985 · 14/03/2014 at 13:27

Webster or B.Grifiiths?

dannyyboyy · 14/03/2014 at 15:06

im a bit nervous about picking fyfe. should i be? potential knee injury, he might get pulled out at the last minute knowing ross.also possible contract talks for the year after damo piped up about him on the footy show(remember hawthon has a lot of cash left for a gun inclusion during the next trade period). is barlow, watson or rocky a better option? ive had fyfe in for a while now but with the game approaching he is making me nervous. what to do, what to do…

    judd0 · 14/03/2014 at 15:36

    He is a bloody jet Dannyboy. I think you might be over thinking it.
    I personally have had him in and out of my side all pre season.
    I've been wrong before but I think he is a great selection at a reasonable price.
    But go with your gut, if you cant sleep because he's in there. Get him out.

LMD · 14/03/2014 at 15:32

Few hours away now fellas! GIDDY UP!

DEF: McVeigh, Hanley, Enright, Swallow, Webster, L.McDonald (Clurey, Georgiou)

MID: GAJ, Pendles, Rockliff, Beams, Daisy, Aish, Polec, X.Ellis (Dunstan, M.Crouch)

RUCK: Lobbe, Sandilands (Thurlow, King)

FWD: Dangerfield, D.Martin, Wingard, T.Mitchell, Rohan, Mcdonough (Merrett, Kennedy-Harris)

BANK: $31,700

any other suggestions for a FWD rookie? would have 150k to spend instead of merrett..

Good Luck all!

Dogs · 14/03/2014 at 15:32

Final shuffle, managed to get shuey in for Thomas which makes me a bit happier.

Def- cookie cutter
Mcveigh, Mitchell, enright, suckling, Webster, McDonald, ( Langdon, Langford)

Ablett, Barlow , Libba, beams, shuey, polec, michie, dunstan, ( Ellis , Cunningham)

Pylke , sandi ( thurlow , king)

Danger, roughie , Mitchell, m. Wright, caddy, Rohan ( McDonough, JKH)

I feel I have a couple of PODS in there who should score well

Ken · 14/03/2014 at 15:47

What's peoples thoughts on Chappi ? If a no go, what would be the next best pick for the money he is on ?

    Derek · 14/03/2014 at 17:03

    he is in my team. he will score big points. however as soon as he looks like getting a rest, he is gone, hopefully he has put on $100k.

matthew · 14/03/2014 at 16:02

can you please give me advice on which combo to pick
dangerfield/ t mitchel
martin/ roughead

Liam · 14/03/2014 at 16:23

Bit of help here fellas
T.Langdon or A.Georgiou?

Josh · 14/03/2014 at 16:29

Are you an office worker, not a sportsman? Are you a bit of a fantasy football flog? Then the Office Flogs league wants YOU: League code 903342

Gary · 14/03/2014 at 16:51

Thoughts on my team community?

DEF: Mitchell, Swallow, Suckling, Bugg, McDonald (Langford, Georgiou)
MID: Watson, Rockliff, Liberatore, Cotchin, Beams, Treloar, Michie, Polec (Dunstan, Crouch)
RUCK: Goldstein, Sandilands (Derickx, Thurlow)
FWD: Dangerfield, Martin, Dahlhaus, Caddy, Higgins, Rohan (JKH, Impey)

Would love some feedback. Dahlhaus or Mitchell?

    Super_Freak · 14/03/2014 at 19:06

    Pretty sound, but you need Gaz or Pendles, or Both.

    Sarah · 17/03/2014 at 12:43

    I hope you stuck to your guns with Treloar. Awesome pick!

Danners16 · 14/03/2014 at 16:58

Hey fellas, need to pick 2 of these 3. Who do I pick? Luke Shuey or Marc Murphy or Dale Thomas?

    SCdonkey · 14/03/2014 at 17:05

    If I had to pick out 2 of the 3 I'd choose Shuey and Smurfet not keen on starting with Daisy. Though none of them are in my team, just can't find a spot for any of them.

      Danners16 · 14/03/2014 at 17:10


LA5 · 14/03/2014 at 17:11

Have 12 spots left in the league if anyone wants to join.

league code 552559

Billy · 14/03/2014 at 17:14

Who would people choose Aish and Crouch or Ellis and Crouch. What about Cunningham will he wear the vest?

Shard · 14/03/2014 at 17:26

Thoughts on Daw? I’m thinking of putting him in as my F5 so that there’s a ruck/fwd swingif sandi messes up

    throttlefinger · 14/03/2014 at 19:35

    Big risk. Coming back from knee injury. Definitely a test drive before buying.

Ryan · 14/03/2014 at 17:27

Dahlhaus, Mitchell or Gunston?

    Super_Freak · 14/03/2014 at 18:53

    Reckon they are all gonna have stellar years. Can't go wrong with any of them!

medadsson · 14/03/2014 at 17:59

    Super_Freak · 14/03/2014 at 18:39


    throttlefinger · 14/03/2014 at 19:36

    Danger and Mitchell. More because Danger is the most SC formidable person in the fwd line this year. You can not NOT have him.

Give It A Go · 14/03/2014 at 19:07

Lach · 15/03/2014 at 13:02

So guys I have Langhorn on my bench, do u think I should swap him onto the field instead of Webster or McDonald after last nights performance?

Lach · 15/03/2014 at 13:04

Langdon I mean

Ronny · 16/03/2014 at 10:12

Zorko or M Wright? Got my head in a spin. Thanks boys

Jottie · 19/03/2014 at 09:03

Thoughts on jed Lamb guys? gave me a donut this week… is he going to play?

    PJ8 · 19/03/2014 at 09:52

    Shouldn't of been picked in Supercoach teams. A lot of money spent to be not playing.
