The weekend chin wag

Published by Jock on

Jock Reynolds - The Father of Fantasy

Let’s get stuck into the issues of the weekend.

What are your pain points? What are you happy with? What’s driving you to drink and what’s your final team looking like?

I’ll start off my saying that – after it was all said and done – my team ended up close enough to a GUNS AND ROOKIES outfit.

Remember if you have some questions or observations about the weekend – hit the red bar over there and leave us a voice message for the podcast on Sunday night.

Let’s get stuck in – what’s on your mind community?

1900 with 5 left jock!

neil the nail

lies

SC Legend.

Not necessarily, been some solid scores on the weekend with Pendlebury, Bartel, Ablett, Swallow, Sandi, Fyfe, Danger, Wingard, all popular picks and scoring well. Even rookies, Laidler, Langdon and Polec have performed.

Well done Cam, unless proven otherwise, 1900 for 17 is very solid round one performance.

cam

Thanks sc legend I have Mitchell suckling McDonald ellis and Dunstan left.

max von muffman

1238 with 9 left… el capitan yet to play

SamuelScoach

Impossible, 1238/9 is 136.5 and only seven or so players have gotten above 136

max von muffman

You probably got the maths wrong SamuelScoach…. 1238 / 13 is the actual math… thus… 95.23 is my average.

9 yet to play means that 13 have played. (Excluding emergencies of course)

rob

Im rolling on 1778 with 8 left lowest scores are 81 82 with caddy n mcveigh. Happy with that score lads.. big thanks to chappy. Ryder n swallow with some real nice value scores.

rob

My mistake 1747. Mainly rookies left tho. Got the hawks boys mitchell suckling langdon n jkh michie ellis webster + my man priddis. Mr reliable. Jobe went beserk. 3 bombers in chappy. Ryder. Jobe. Hope im pushing 2400 2450. Best score ive gotten if so. Pot luck. But im chuffed!! Come on lads finish it strong! !!

Dee

Hahahaha….. Samuelcoach you tool.

Super_Freak

Well done Cam!

SCdonkey

I'm sitting on 1900 (if I decide to take Beams score) at the moments with 5 yet to play 2 Premos, 2 Mid pricer and 1 Rookie. But if I don't take Beams score then I am sitting on 1764 Cap still to play.

Chris

2231 with scott selwood to go.

Matt

Tossing up between Merrett, Kennedy-Harris and L. Taylor for my F-6 spot and also tossing up between Currie and Thurlow for my R-4 spot. Your thoughts Father of Fantasy??

Super_Freak

I have 2 of the 3 named as my FWD bench. All good choices. None of the rookie rucks are playing. Currie is probably a R3, and someone like King for R4 as a loophole.

Chenzo_89_

Lewis Taylor or Zac Merret up forward?

GarglesnarfFC

JKH has better JS than the other two. Same can be said of Currie over Thurlow, however Thurlow makes a good floating donut option for the Captains loophole.

boneman

Aish, Mitchie, Dunstan. I have them all, I need to start one of them.

Also, Langford or Georgiou for the E in my defence?

Harrison

Langford easily

Luxy

If you were to be a serious contender for the SC prize, what would be the ideal 1st Rd score in order for you to be competitive?

SC Legend.

I'd say atleast 2,300 – 2,400 with high individual scores being polled this week.

At the moment I'm on 1,413 for 12. I'm hoping for 2,300 I reckon! Still got some solid players to come.

Luxy

Thanks for your time in getting back to me SC

GarglesnarfFC

1439 from 12. Miss of the week is Langdon.

Cheese

Higgins or L Taylor for F6???

SC Legend.

Higgins for me.
Taylor for you? Personal preference, either one probably takes big kahunas. Taylor is cheaper though!

SCdonkey

Higgins would best if you want higher score. Taylor if you cash generation. You choose what is your goal?

SC Legend.

1512 for 12 at the moment, looking solid.

Pains:
– Having Buddy instead of Mitchell/Parker/Wingard. REGRETS.
– Not having Bartel, Selwood, Pendlebury or Swallow.
– Not having Langdon at all,.. last minute trade out.

Wins:
– Everyone in mid scoring over 100 and team structure still looking solid.

No trades are being taken in the first couple of rounds for my team, sticking to the structure this year.
Corrective trades are tempting, one may be necessary end of round two before prices change, but all the trades will be needed for a solid premium team by end of season.

SC Legend.

*1,413 for 12.

Dools

Hi SC 1610 from 12 ATM but still deciding on Nicky Del or Watson Esp after Wife of James has re-opened old wounds 24h B4 the bounce…Hmmmmm

Super_Freak

That's a descent score from 12 Dools. Have a lot of your premiums played?

JP

I’ve got 2 genuine dilemma’s community and need some help…

1. I’ve got Nic-Nat as R1 with no named emergencies – as he’s on the extended bench do I switch him for a Leuey or hold firm, any insight into whether he’ll play?

2. Langford looks a ripe rookie prospect, named in the mids – any Hawks fans know what his JS is like? Shall I switch out suckling and make some dollar bills?

Thanks!

SC Legend.

You would have big kahunas looking in Nic Nat JP. However, great POD if it pays off! I'm sticking tight with Leuy, he will be top 2 ruck by end of the year. Mark my words.

Langford, in my opinion, good job security as he is taking over Shiels role as a tagger. However, how do taggers normally go in the Supercoach scoring department? Hmmm,. better options for my team.

Suckling is made of dollar bills.

Super_Freak

Have to agree SCL. I'm hoping Langford will continue his tagging role, as I have Shiels in the guts, not usually good for SC scores though.

Can't go wrong with Leuey, he's a consistent performer. NN is still a concern and a bit pricey for mine. I went with big Sauce and couldn't be happier after last night.

JP

Thanks guys just made the switch – even though NN is now green lit on the interchange bet his injury concerns are just too risky

Big Janks

I made the switch to Cox. His early season schedule (and the eagles easing in NN) made the decision for me over Leuy who has a really tough first 8 games for the Lions and Big Ben as I'm just not sure if they will vest him similar to Bailey last year (I know they were keeping him fresh given his inj history- but the Hawks love to bring on run in the 4th quarter of games).

Cox obviously costs more and is 32 years old. But I think that outweighs the points made above. Tough call but it looks like NN will be cheap as chips come Rd 4/5.

Jimmy

Tyson,Michie,Ellis,Dunstan which 2 onfield. Langford,McDonald,Webster which 2 onfield

Josh

Tyson and Dunstan
Webster and I'd go Langford

Darcy

Dunstan and ellis for mine, ellia will be another polec so long as his bodys right.

Would be going Mcdonald and Webster on field, no point having spare $$ on the bench.

Josh

Michie, Ellis or McDonald

tony

be watching Langford as he is supposed to be starting in thick of it…see if his nuggety frame has any skills and racks up good poss and extract to support…

Captain joc

That’s how mine is starting to look like today to jock
One last question Langford,suckling or McDonald I’ve got 2 spots left

THE SALTSHAKER

get rid of suckling unless you think will avg 90+ for year better off making cash of rookie who avg 60-70 could be save $200 make $200 by the bye rnds = $400k

Captain joc

Yeah that’s what I was thinking as it’s a lot safer going Langford over suckling

THE SALTSHAKER

Have decided to hold off mcdonald gives me options to trade clurey or georgiou to him or KK if JS becomes an issue or daisy down to him opening up DPP. No use having him sit on my bench at that price

THE SALTSHAKER

If KK plays next week teams with mcdonald and laidler will have issues $$ wise, mckenna wants him to play early with their easy draw

Dools

No issue for me mate KK s price changes R4 whilst the other two are generating cash, so I have till R6 to make up my mind on KK

beamsmeupscotty

1924 with Mitchell, Webster, McDonald, Michie, Hickey and Higgins to come.
Only real disappointment so far has been McVeigh not having a blinder against GWS. Started 6 midfield premos, going to pay dividends until the byes

ollie

1232 from 10 so far, captain played. I am reasonable happy with that.

A little unsure of my m10, Taylor or go for a possible P.O.D with Shred. He is named but thinking he might be subbed, the kid can definitely play though.

Dogs

With rookies being named my team has ended up looking a lot closer to guns and rookies also, except for the forward line with titch, wright, caddy. This has also allowed me to free up some cash , enough so to upgrade Thomas to a premium if need be or whatever issues may arise before R2.

So far 1627 from 15 played, C on gazz. 3 players so far to not beat their break even, in danger, Thomas and mcveigh. Danger and mcveigh I have no issue with, I'm kicking myself for putting Thomas back in the team , he just looked like white crusty dog poo . May wait and see how people perform R2 , if treloar can back it up I will trade him in for Thomas , unless I get impulsive and do it earlier,lol

Alex

I'm 1505 with 13 played happy with that

Dave2008

Gday community ,

B: McVeigh Mitchell Handley D Swallow Clurey ( Langdon Georgio)
C Ablett J Kennedy Beams Murphy Thomas X Ellis Polec L Taylor Dunstan McDonald
R Jacobs Sandilands (Thurlow Currie)
F Martin Dangerfield Buddy Caddy Higgins Rohan (Impey Kennedy –Harris)

Questions are Suckling is he a lock or is it better to get Georgio for cash generation? L Taylor from Brisbane worth his spot with dpp? Or better to get Aish or MIchie or Tyson in ? LEaves with me with 343 k in the bank. Too much so where to spend it and how much to keep?

Thanks for any comments.

Autofelatio

G'day there fellas, been struggling to find a suitable replacement for Matt Crouch at m10. For some reason I am completely stumped as to what to do and I must turn to the community for help. I've essentially used up my entire salary cap so have been looking at Lewis Taylor and any other possible player at that price. However, would it be a better idea to say turn Rockliff into Priddis, pocket the extra 50K and take someone like Xavier Ellis. Thoughts?, any other ideas are more than welcome.

rob

Id say thats a very wise option. Probs score more n make more cash

Beard

1830 with Sam Mitchell, Pearce Hanley, Matt Suckling, , Will Langford, Tom Liberatore, Luke Dunstan to come.

My only real question is now with Langford and Langdon starting is McDonald overuse for a bench player at 180k+

Is there another rookie to look at in defenders so I can pump another 80k into upgrading Rohan…

Jack

Which ONE of these rookie ruckmen has the best JOB SECURITY for the WHOLE SEASON?

– Daniel Currie (NTH)
– Fraser Thurlow (ESS)
– Max King (MEL)
– Toby Nankervis (SYD)

Your thoughts would greatly appreciated.

Zach

None….. but in order probably Nankervis (2nd to Pyke), Thurlow (until Bellchambers gets back), Currie then King.

rhino

NANKERVIS is third n Sydney's list DERICKX is second.

Danno

Currie. Thurlow missed the boat when they elevated Ambrose and showed there hand.

Joel

Sheed or Dunstan
Luey or cox?

Autofelatio

Dunstan and Leuy, although cox will still perform you will save 50k on Leuy and he'll average just as much if not more i reckon

Super_Freak

Pretty Happy Jock. Went with a strong Midprice team this season for a change, and so far it'g going OK. 1398 from 12. Captain Played.

Wright gets plenty of it, just needs to improve his DE. Caddy will improve every week. If he didn't gift that goal to Bartel or Selwood (cant remember who it was) in the final term, he probably would have cracked the ton.

I'm gambling on Shiels breaking out this season. Have him in the guts, and if Langdon takes Tagging duties, I reckon he'll be a real POD.

Pittard had an average round, gonna give him one more week. Have Sauce in R1, smashed it last night, reckon he's in for a good one.

My only regret was downgrading Titch to Caddy and upgrading Swallow to McVeigh. Reckon McVeigh will come good, just should have trusted my gut with Swallow. If Pittard puts up another stinker next week I'll be doing my best to turn him into Swallow before his price skyrockets!

Jye

Great call on Shiels, I'm thinking the same.
If Daisy has another stinky week I'll most likely trade him to either Shiels or Macrae.

Jai

I reckon the Caddy/McVeigh combo was the right one still mate.

I think theyll score more than T Mitchell and Swallow combined. You watch – Swallow will back up the next couple of weeks with a 60 and a 70

Cheese

Lamgford or mcdonald????

Autofelatio

Mcdonald

Michael

mcdonald

Jack

Who to pick out of Thurlow, Currie or King in terms the entire season (not just round 1)?

Your thoughts please?

Autofelatio

Currie imo, North are looking for a third tall I read somewhere (don't quote me though), he's also a gun just cant break into the side atm but is high on the list for the North rookies.

Jack

Ok thanks Autofelatio, you confirmed what I thought my gut feeling was trying to tell me.

Really appreciate it.

Autofelatio

no worries anytime

max von muffman

I agree with Currie… Goldie will need some resting and Currie is the best option to help out apparently… as well as doing some forward work.

So I've heard.

Dale

Godly hurt tonight!

Ben

Jamie Bennel for something different?

Michael

are you high? definitely someone different

Jordan

not a fan of "players of difference" – just choose good quality players … THAT'S IT.

supercoach/fantasy/dreamteam isn't about who has the most unique team – its about scoring as many points as you can .. SIMPLE.

Ocker

Can I please have some of what you are smoking?.

Cheese

Langford or webster?????

Michael

CHOOSING BETWEEN Langford OR Webster = CHOOSING BETWEEN Potentially big scores OR near certain job security.

for me, I would choose Langford because I think although his job security isn't going to be certain; he will earn you cash FAST.

Jazza

1870/ 6 left capt played…what are best forward and ruck rookies to go in with

@jstorm311

1570 with 7 left to play. Bloody Langdon on bench & Clurey on field doesn't help, but looking at a half decent score to start with.

Hazey

1455/12 here with a headache about who to bring in for Crouch.

For some reason my brain stopped working last week and I traded out JKH from Melbourne for Impey. Thinking that L.Taylor's DP could be beneficial next week if I need to dump a fwd rookie.

Taking a punt on Nic-Nat, Ziebell and A.Black this year and hoping they turn out well!

Autofelatio

I'm in the exact same predicament Hazey, Taylor looks like the guy to go as Brisbane wouldn't have named him without confidence in his ability seeing as he didn't play any preseason games I don't think. But, still a decent sized conundrum that I can't work out for the life of me. (considering putting in Priddis for Rocky as I can then bring in Ellis but that move doesn't feel right…)

Liam

Templeton, Honeychurch, Lewis Taylor or Wanganeen for M8???

Lee Underwood

1666 with 7 to play. S Mitchell. P Hanley. M Suckling. J Webster. D tyson. X Ellis. B McEvoy. Hope they all score well to get me over 2200.

Danno

I've got Suckling and Langford in starting team and having second thoughts. With extra $45K I'd have around $358K if I drop Suckiling but who would be a good mid pricer in his place (I already have Langdon, McDonald and Georgiou.

Autofelatio

Personally I'd keep Suckling, however Jimmy Webster seems like a nice pick at 240k if you really want to get rid of him. Would leave you with a fair bit left to use elsewhere (around 110k) but atm I can't see anyone around that 350k mark in the defence that's worth it, apart from Suckling Pig anyway.

Tim Darbyshire

1700 with 9 players left!! The Dashers looking solid so far!!

rhino

OH really? Name your side then.

Tim Darbyshire

Make that 7 to play!

rhino

Ok, that is realistic, that is a very good score so far, well done

rhino

Hey guys, is Lewis Taylor a big chance to start as sub

Autofelatio

Don't think so but if he does it doesn't matter as it should only be for this week so he can be eased into senior footy. He's a gun and will definitely make you some nice cash and post some nice scores if you need him

Dools

Any love for Stanton out there?????

throttlefinger

Yeah, it's catty-corner to my bungy hole. Burned me too much last year. Toenails falls off when tagged. Strong when left alone.

Dools

Hahahahaa Just dippein' me toe in the water mate …. Calm down LOL

Tim Darbyshire

Def: Mcveigh, Mitchell, Enright, suckling, McDonald,geogeiou

Mids: GAJ,pendles, cotch,murphy,beams,Polec, Ellis, dunstan

Ruck: goldy, sandi

Forwards: danger, dusty, wingaurd, t.mitchell, Rohan, Impey

Emerancey not look like being used!

Wattsieesq

Merrett with the vest. Sign of season to come? Change to Honeychurch or is he in the same position?

Wattsieesq

Just checked. Honeychurch is an emergency. I'll have to stick with zach

throttlefinger

Ryder or Cox? Having trouble deciding.

Ryder strong when solo ruck and price is nice. Cox is a SC behemoth yet NicNat in will play more ruck and less forward?

Thoughts?

Shinboner

Probably a bit late, but at the time, I probably would have said Cox. Ryder not looking too bad though. Will play against a Goldstein hampered by a sore wrist.

Hawkaz

shoulder*

Shinboner

My bad. Looked like a bad wrist at the time.

Big Janks

I made the switch to Cox. His early season schedule (and the eagles easing in NN) made the decision for me over Leuy who has a really tough first 8 games for the Lions and Big Ben as I'm just not sure if they will vest him similar to Bailey last year (I know they were keeping him fresh given his inj history- but the Hawks love to bring on run in the 4th quarter of games).

throttlefinger

Ended up switching to Ryder, Biggie J. Allowed me to get Jobe and Tyson. Thought Paddy did a little better than score indicated but will take it.

taylorwoof

Jobe!!!!! That was glorious.

Chris Hamilton

What sort of cash should we be looking to retain in the bank? $900 with Tyson as M10 or $45,100 with michie??

Tim Darbyshire

Chris I have $43,000 in the bank. Weather or no I am right only time will tell?

Super_Freak

Wouldn't worry about the cash. If you can afford Tyson, I would pick him!

Brad

NEED HELP! not sure if I should go with Langford or suckling. could make a lot more money of Langford thinking that they will both average around 60-70??
Also dahlhaus and zorko? will they average 95-100 this year??

Dale

I am taking a punt on Dahlhouse, fingers crossed as downgraded Watson to get him and caddy in.

Marcus J

1629 with 8 left to play and had the captain on ablett (after a last minute switch, originally had him vc and selwood C.. Burning!!!)

Z.MERRITT STARTING AS SUB PEOPLE

Gold Rush

1647 with 7 to go, 3 Prems, 2 Rook, 1 Wook & 1 Mid pricer Hickey, Dumbest move was to select Jamie Elliot, Not impressed with Thomas & Clurey and I reckon Hickey is going to knock Elliot from the dumbest move perch. Got the bucks too do some correction trades and will be doing so in the first 2 rounds.

Shinboner

Ripping start by Cunnington and Chapman. Hell knows I need the boost after Pittard's woeful performance.

Super_Freak

Yeah Pittard fair stunk it up, had high hopes. Only had McD and Merret last night. McD a bit disappointing too!

sckingg

need two to start on the field out of aish, michie, dunstan, or ellis? thoughts would be very appreciated

Blueprime

M & E

crabb

Glad I stuck with Jobe all preseason.

Shinboner

Would've been a lock in my team was it not for ASADA.

Autofelatio

Exactly the same as me Shinboner, that and using up all my salary cap haha

David

McDonald not finding much pill.

5 disposals for 16 SC points half time

GarglesnarfFC

None of the Kangas finding the pill as the Bombers won't share it! Only 5 Kangas in top 20 possession winners and none in top 10. Bombers are looking VERY SC relevant!

cyril is the man

If the bombers play this boring hands off chip the ball 20 metres all the time, i'll be bringing in heppell I reckon.

Marcus J

North just got killed all over the park. i wouldn't be worrying too much if you have a north player in your squad.

canman1306

1395 Mitchell Hanley Suckling Mcdonald Langford Watson Aish Ellis Ryder Higgins cores to add on Hoping for 2300

Westy

1608 from 15. Go the Son of Tim!

SCdonkey

Friday Night Footy
My mighty Roos was not so mighty, were up against the high flying Boomers who was untouchables. Jobe Watson played like he was possessed racking up 25 Touches by half time. Goldstein was down at the first quarter with compliments from Ryder's knee. The Boomers controlled the game lead at every quarter, 10 players above 20 Possessions Watson 38 Touches and Heppell 37 Touches were the leaders, as to Roos only had 4 lousy players with over 20 possessions J Mcmillan 23 Touches.
J Watson was running free collecting 38 Touches, 9 Marks, 8 Clearances, 6 inside 50s and 2 Goals. D Heppell 37 Touches, and 16 Marks, C Hooker 26 Touches and 16 Marks, B Goddard was brilliant had 26 Touches, 5 Clearances, 6 Tackles, 7 inside 50s and booted 3 Goals. P Chapman was excellent until he came off the last quarter with ankle injury, had plenty of the pill 21 Touches, 8 inside 50s and 4 Goals. P Ryder went up against Goldstein and had the better of him collecting 11 Touches, 34 Hit-outs and a Goal.

I was disgusted and filthy how my Mighty Roos performed at every aspect of the game, flat and bloody disappointing. Can not even be bothered to write up any stats from this game. J Macmillan, A Mullet, N Dal Santo, L Thomas and L Adams who came in as a Sub collect 17 Touches, 10'Marks and 3 Rebounds were the only positives.
Very Disappointing

Must watch list
The Boomers
B Goddard
D Heppell
P Ryder
J Daniher
C Hooker
B Howlett

The Roos at your peril
L Thomas
J Macmillan
N Dal Santo
A Mullet

Shinboner

I'd throw Cunnington into the positives too. Concussion, but finished the game solidly.

Wattsieesq

I tipped the bombers, so happy they won. They have been fast starters over the past few seasons. Let's see if it can be sustained this year. BTW not a bombers fan at all.

SCdonkey

I think i was that upset, couldn't even get the Bombers word right lol. But it was a great on game on their behalf. Now can't sleep, thinking about what Scott is gonna do next week up against The Dogs.

Wattsieesq

lol. The roos were competitive in patches. They just fell away before half time and then in the last. The last quarter fades have been par for the course as far as the roos are concerned.

Wattsieesq

From a SC perspective, having Goldie injured is a blow. I know he played the game out but his ruckwork and score says he may have a spell. I have currie at R3, so hopefully he'll get some time. From his pre season form it looks like he'll need it. He's sure to be a slow moving cash cow. All roos mids were woeful as you said. Ziebell in particular. 47 smh

SCdonkey

You're not wrong there Wattsie. Good thing I didn't start with Goldie was gonna wait for his price to go down and I think its going to, if he plays next week carrying an injury and going up against Minson most likely he'll get managed and Currie should be called in as an R2 if Goldie is not 100% fit. For Supercoach and Roos supporters sake Scott better pick Currie over Majak.

Jim from Gippsland

if currie comes in next week there's my first trade in the rucks….thurlow to currie….

thinking I will make 5 for the year….#earlyprediction

SCdonkey

Right, right shinboner Cunnington did ok. But expected more from him, Ziebell, Pietre, Goldy should've dominated Ryder, Harvey did some silly decisions, Bastinac, Atley and Thompson these guys did not perform as they should have. And why was Jobe free to run around like he did. What was Scott looking at? I'm sure Jobe wasn't invisble.

SCdonkey

Ah Relevant Jock, Yes Jock! Wayno was right on the money about Goddard if only he still had DPP, I bet he would have been a popular pick. I'll be looking at getting him in my team before the byes Jock. As for my mighty Roos, ASHAMED Jock, I was utterly disgusted. I thought after kicking the last 3 Goals at quarter time to stay in touch, they would've kicked a gear in the 2nd quarter. But stalled and never got going. Pathetic performance all over the ground.

SCdonkey

sitting on 1900 with S Mitchell, Libba, Macrae, Ellis and Higgins to play. I'd be lucky to get 2300 Points.

NutSack

so far the number ranked person in afl fantasy DT is on 2490

not bad round 1!!

medadsson

DT is for movie goers. Supercoach is for those who read books (or at least know how to)!

shane

1197, captain used (sandy)

12 left to play including seven premiums. Didnt start with ablett or pendles, went Watson instead.

So far 4 points up on Ablett, LOL. Gaj 140 x 2 = 280 + Sandy 127 = 407
Sandy 127 x 2 = 254 + Watson 157 = 411

shane

correct, thats 1178 unless I later have to prove myself, lol.

No standouts so far barring watson, beams and sandilands, but steady scores from guys like polec, K. simspon, danger and martin have all helped, along with leaving mcdonald as emergency.

Super_Freak

Do you reckon his numbers will improve Jock? He's the only Roo I have, but he was on the park, had Langdon on pine like many others. Probably swap them next week, just not real comfy having that many dollars sitting on the bench this early on.

SCdonkey

I'd stick with him freak, McD showed a glimpse of brilliance last night. Like what Jock said, and I think McD was just a bit of an eager beaver at the start.

Super_Freak

Ta Jock, might stick him on the pine this week and see how Langdon goes. He seems to be a fair ball magnet!

Jim from Gippsland

took a while to adjust to the extra pace and intensity of the game vs the bubble gum NAB cup stuff.

now he knows what is required he will be better for it. should get his average up around 75 to 80 for year I am thinking

john

1916 with 5 left. Shame I had to leave Langdon on the bench as an emergency

Shannan

1489 with 7 to play, including captain Roughy! Traded out Watson yesterday morning, massive screw up!

DOM

1902 with four to play….. suckling, Michie, Dunstan & Hanley.

Dale

That’s the problem with this stupid year long split round…. Too much time to second guess yourself!!!

@klavo25

Kept McDonald on the bench last night 🙂

14/1640

Mitchell Hodge/Hanley Langford
Libba Tyson Michie/Dunstan
Hickey
Higgins

Willing to cop a 70 from Hickey knowing Currie will be playing next week.

2400-2500 a possibility this week!

nechke33

1651 with 8 to come.
Mitchell, McEvoy, Roughnuts, Liberatore.
Higgins
Michie, Ellis and Dunstan

Sarah

1808 with 7 still to play.

Still to come are Mitchell, Hanley, Langford, Michie, Ellis, Dunstan and Higgins.

Dools

Your leading the way Sarah …Keep it goin'n mate

Daz

need to of michie, aish and ellis on the field. I tink dunstan should be locked but I am not sure about the other two. Help!

Sarah

Personally, I’d leave Aish off the field. He has the harder game against the hawks.

Boydo

Missed out on Laidler. Defence structure has that I play two rookie on field. I have McDonald Langdon Langford and Georgous. Do I need to get Laidler in as a priority for round two or leave it for another week?

Presty

1400 with 8 left plus

I started Kieran jack not knowing he wasn't named (was on a plane when that news came out 🙁 )

have james aish and Xavier ellis wondering who to put the emergency button on?

@klavo25

Ellis… Both will score mid 70s

Presty

was thinking as much cheers bro

Swans2012

1683 with 8 to come,pretty happy although seems like the upper end of par in a high scoring first round!

Pieman1978

I think you’ll need 2300+ to stay in touch. Wouldn’t be surprised if the round high score is 2550+

Jim from Gippsland

agree

Pieman1978

1748 with 7 to go. Brought Waston in yesterday for Libba. Wrapt

Sarah

Me too!!!

Pieman1978

Nice to see the ladies getting into SC Sarah. How’s the rest of your team travelling

Sarah

I love it!! I'm sitting on 1808 with 7 to go!

zimmerbd

Nice score.

Emma

1738 with 7 to go
Mitchell, suckling, webster, michie, ellis, dahlhaus and higgins

Jim from Gippsland

staring down a huge score there Emma, good stuff

Dools

Second that Jimbo ..Well done Emma

Donavan

1469 with 9 on ground players to come (including Mitchell, Hanley, Webster, Tyson, McEvoy, Roughead).

Hoping to score around 2200+ particularly if the Hawks dominate the Lions.

choppy

1674 after 16 played, got done by dixon getting concussed and made the gut wrenching decision of trading watson to jpk at the last minute. Question is, will jpk stop this garbage of scoring like a champion for 1 half, then going to sleep fot the rest of the game??……took the punt on him getting back to that 120+ form

Jye

Hey lads, who should I put on the park out of Dunstan and Ellis?

Jim from Gippsland

I would go Ellis purely due to being at subi.

Jim from Gippsland

1853 with 5 to play.

Mitchell, suckling, shiels, Xman and Higgins.

If things go OK might just breach 2200. No major corrective trades identified as yet but I will be looking at Daisy's next game. First order of business will be getting Watson into the mid by the looks of last nights game.

Thinking of downgrading Shiels to Tyson and pocketing $130k just to get the 'Get Jobe Watson' fund going.

And if the great Shaun Higgins experiment fails, he will turn into say Lewis Taylor and bingo, one new Jobe Watson.

Theories are wonderful aren't they. Pity they never find their way to execution.

WombatsFC

Hi Jim, I deduce from your lust for Jobe that Joel and Nathan are already in your squad.

Emma

North put zero pressure on Dons, Dons have Hawks, Blues and Freo I can't see Watson being allowed to run around on his own for the next 3 matches

Jim from Gippsland

good point emma.

He will certainly need to back up again next week. Question is – Will Watson be in the top 10 mids for the year…..thinking yes. so maybe get him in ASAP. Depends if Daisy and Shiels look like making cash or just sit there. If they are marching upwards then they need to be moved on and a new strategy used. Ideally Watson and Matt Crouch debuting in round 3 as the plan B.

Jim from Gippsland

hey wombat.

if joel is joel sellwood then no, I don't have him but I can't get him till after the bye due to round 8 bye issues.

Have to admit, you have me on Nathan……Nathan who? I think I might have missed the joke?

Super_Freak

I'm tipping Wombat is talking about Nat Fyfe. Gun also. I'n not gonna get too excited over Jobe just yet. His past history is littered with massive scores like last night as well as a lot of average ones too. As Emma said, he won't get it as easy most weeks as he did last night.

Dools

Hi Lads and Lassie's ..On Jobe I wish I had him (For the Score) but he has proven himself yet again so well done to those of you who picked him. To the rest of us who don't . It is only round 1
I went with Nicky Dal scored 98 in an insipid preformance by North so he is LOCKED Imagine the output if North actually show up!!!!

Super_Freak

Such a surprising effort by the Roos, or lack off. I tipped them to win and they just didn't get out of second gear.

Jockloveshafting

Why lead every spud on mate that your picking all these wookies and smokey picks than LAST MINUTE change your team to GUNS out fit with rookies and talk crap on podcast and show dummy teams etc NOT COOLLLLLLL

choppy

Jock just offers guidance mate, cant rely on him to pick your whole team for you.

Super_Freak

Ease up!

Plenty of us enjoy the comedy of the Podcasts and the general banter about teams on this site. You don't have to listen to the podcasts or contribute to the community if you don't like what you see or hear.

WombatsFC

Idiot.

Neil

Mate, Simple solution pick your own team like everyone else in the community did. We are super fortunate to have Jock and the crew giving us so much guidance.

Eagle

You are obviously a moron with not SC experience.
Team lists determine who we choose in our sides.
Rolling lockout meant we were changing our sides all week
THe majority now will have Langdon and Laidler as they were named on the field first up.
When Polec and Swallow scored well and then Langford was named on the field options changed and dictated new possibilities. I dropped Suckling ,Hodge and Webster and freed up 200k for upgrading Daisy to Jobe.
Jock does a fantastic job but like all super coaches we pick our final teams on the run as they are named and depending on early scores and gambles.
Sounds like you don't have a clue fool.

Josh

1770 from 15 with 7 still to play, I am happy so far as I got a chance to crack the 2400. Which two should I start on the field out of Michie, Ellis, Dunstan? Thanks

Sarah

Haha, your guess is as good as mine there!!

WombatsFC

Hahaha I suppose the rest of your team was picked by the community for you as well?

Josh

Not really what makes you think that? I am just a bit nervous as this will be my first crack at getting 2400+ and I don't want to stuff it up. I am leaning towards Ellis and Michie but I just wanted some confirmation. My team wasn't picked by the community as I spent a lot of time researching and I stayed away from players that had a lot of hype from the community like D.Thomas which so far has proven to be a success. I also chose some players that most of the people on hear wouldn't choose like Higgins and Watson. I am not trying to start an argument but I just wanted to prove my point as I spent a lot of time into making my team. Josh

WombatsFC

Josh if I was heading towards 2400 in round 1 I wouldn't be asking anybody anything! Your choices to this point must have been outstanding and I wouldn't be stuffing it up by asking for outside input.
Which 7 are still to play?

Jimmy

Shoosh Wombat everyone else is asking very similar questions…

Dools

Hey Wombats, How is your team working out????

WombatsFC

It depends on when I look at it Dools. Like you I am a fan of life enhancing substances and sometimes my perspective can be somewhat obtuse.
However, despite making stupid decisions like McVeigh & Boomer it's looking ok 1699 with Mitchell, Hodge, Webster, Langford Tyson, XEllis,and Higgins yet to play. Should finish in 2100-2200 ballpark

Josh

I still have Mitchel, liberatore, Webster, higgins, Ellis, Kennedy-Harris (who might get changed) and Michie to play. If Mitchell and liberatore go big and the others get around the 80 mark I am a chance to get to 2400 but realistically I will probably get around 2300.

Dools

OMFG you went Higgins, Nice output buddy I wont tell Wayno you have the H in your team too LOL. Just so you know I'm watching Tyson like a …opps I nearly said Hawk but I 'm watching him

Jack

Tossing up between Leuenberger and McEvoy as my R1 who should i pick? Thoughts would be appreciated

choppy

Im going with berger personally, reckon hes got plenty of improvement in him

Jack

Thanks!! Thats what I'm going to do now

Ocker

Leuenhamandeggenberger for mine.

Cheers.

Shinboner

Leuey for mine, but only just. McEvoy is one of the better ruckmen around the ground, but isn't exactly the greatest tap ruckman in the league. When your ruckman has an off day in terms of disposals, you'd like to see him boost his score with hitouts – this is where his game lacks I reckon.

Michael

need 2 out of tyson, taylor and aish for mids.

Any thoughts?

Super_Freak

Tyson & Aish if you have the cash.

WombatsFC

Depends on if you want onfield points, quick cash, or interchangeability between the lines.

michael

was thinking tyson on the ground and aish or taylor on the bench. aish seems expensive for a bench player, but think has better JS and point scoring ability than taylor

LA5

Tyson and Taylor

Presty

ive got Langford on the bench in def and suckling on field im itching towards subbing (scratch scratch)

any thoughts

Mebois

1704/16 with captain

studs: pendles, swallow, sandi, beams, cotchin, polec, danger, caddy, titchell, enright, jacobs. langdon

duds: franklin, lmac

Tweeners: B. Smith, mcdonough.

so far i am satisfied with my team so far, hoping i can get 2200+.i have mitchell, rockliff, libba, gunston, dunstan, tyson left to play.

i will see how buddy goes for one more week and if he does crap again ii will be looking at pav or chappy (if he has no more hammys).

Shinboner

Try not to sideways trade. You did the preseason research for a reason. Stick to your guns and don't butcher your team structure over one game.

Mebois

i know but we picked some players with risk and with risk comes dangerous possibilities, so i am just preparing for the worst.

Lord Relton Roberts

Picked Ziebell to break out this year… safe to say im a little scared community 🙁 haha

Super_Freak

Early days yet, but I'd be a little concerned too. Not convinced he'll ever take that step to elite level everyone is hoping for!

Shinboner

See the statistics mate! Scott said it himself, we just weren't getting our hands on the pill. Contested footy, usually our strong suit, was down and we gave guys like Goddard, Heppell and Jobe a free run at the footy. It was no-touch footy and that should be rectified very soon. And when it does, Dal Santo, Cunnington, Swallow and Ziebell will experience increased SC productivity across the board. Still confident he'll rise, stick to your guns.

Dools

Agreeded Shinboner Del Santos is LOCKED, has it all and Left foot kicking from the Arc for a team lifting goal Beautiful, So glad I stuck with him and as stupid as it sounds he was replacement for Jobe (as posted above) It would be nice to have Jobes score but Nicky Dal scoring 98 in losing side Awesome prospect. By the time Zieball was put onto Watson he had 20 touch's Way to late . Coach will never miss that again Roo's to win the next 6 he is filhty and he should be.

Shinboner

I've got Cunnington myself, and I'm stoked he managed to score 92 despite coming off concussed for almost a quarter.

bbb

Honeychurch out who's next best option Taylor from brisbane

Shinboner

Take a look at Wanganeen. Has been decent in preseason and with Whitecross out for an extended period of time, he might rack up enough games to give him a decent boost in value. *EDIT* Ignore that, he's copped the vest.

Maenads

I have Taylor M10. Best option? I hope so.

Ocker

I put Taylor in the mids even though he got vest. (Good Player and will get games) If you want a forward look at O'brien Hawks.

Cheers.

skindog

1402 with 10 to play, not goin well damn it, Mitchell Hanley Sukling Webster Langford Dunstan Ellis McEvoy Higgins and JK Harris to come!!!

zimmerbd

Taylor starts as sub for Lions, Wanganeen for Hawks.

Maenads

2 spots left, who to put on the turf Suckling, Webster or Langford.?

LA5

Who should I have in the team this is a urgent decision.

M.Suckling or J.Webster

L.Taylor or X.Ellis

I'd really appreciate the advice.

zimmerbd

Suckling and Ellis.

LA5

Thank you so much for your advice it really helped.

David

1438 / 12 played captain score from Sandilands and 2 sub 100's from T.Mitch 93 and L.McDonald 48

Have Hodge,Mitchell and Roughead coming up hope these 3 avg 95+ between them this game.

David

Oh and Caddy 81

zimmerbd

Is Michie too much cash to have sitting on the bench?

I've got Polec, Ellis, Dunstan, Michie M9 at the moment. Thinking of downgrading one and trying to upgrade a JKH on the forward line. Any advice?

Rat

Don't think it will mean too much as michie will hopefully be one of the best rookies this season.
Personally my Mid bench rookies are Ellis and Michie and I would much rather spend the extra money for an 75+ averaging rookie rather than a 50 averaging rookie.

zimmerbd

Thanks for that. Bit of a crises of confidence at the moment.

LA5

I reckon you still got to have Michie in the team because he'll make money and he has pretty good job security in the long run.

Rat

stick with taylor or take a punt on JKH will be the decision a lot of coaches will be deliberating

Super_Freak

Thanks SCD. Hoping my Lions don't get touched up too badly this arvo. Just about to settle in, and watch the game!

SCdonkey

Your Welcome Freak. I have taken a Punt on Mitchell as my Captain opted not to take Beams score. High risk, High reward! Hope I made the right decision.

Big Janks

Hopefully he picks up in the 2nd half! I would like Gunston to pull his head out…

WombatsFC

Ouch!

SCdonkey

Big OUCH! If only I knew he was going to be the tagger on Rockliff.

Super_Freak

Yeah I have both of them, didn't have the C on either though. Langford didn't seem to be tagging, and played pretty well. Bit concerning if Mitchell is going to play that role each week.

Glad I backed in Shiels, reckon he's in for a good year!
