PODCAST: The Silence of the Lambs

Published by Jock on

Supercoach 2014 preseason podcast

Another weekend of drama.

Mumford, Dahlhaus, Wingard, Hanley, Goddard, Leuenberger, Caddy, Rohan, Webster, our forward rookies and other spuds made round 4 one to forget for many.

And we look towards Round 5 with one eye on these issues – but another one on the fattening spring lambs that we will begin to harvest for their cash within the next few weeks.

Enjoy the show community – would love to see what your trade plans are for the next few weeks in the comments below.

First 🙂

    WombatsFC · 13/04/2014 at 22:02

    Your mum must be proud.

    Jarrad · 13/04/2014 at 22:25

    Pretty sure Noah is in first, just saying. Probably want to work on that.

      WombatsFC · 13/04/2014 at 23:18

      Crikey Jarrad I haven't even read a bible or been to church but I'm pretty sure the Christians don't think Noah came first; unless Noah was a kiwi and a sheep was the virgin mother.

        Jarrad · 14/04/2014 at 01:52

        Its not my fault the bloke in 1st place is Noah, lets face it, hes had time to perfect his art….on the ark.

Billy · 13/04/2014 at 22:06

trading out Thomas for Crouch.

    rob · 13/04/2014 at 22:09

    Thank god. . Never been big on daisy

    WombatsFC · 13/04/2014 at 22:45

    Great idea get another onfield midfield rookie who'll deliver rollercoaster scores. Replace him with something better eg Wines Macrae

      Shinboner · 13/04/2014 at 23:07

      I think Macrae will begin the plateau at 500k, so at this point, might be a little late to jump on cash generation wise.

        WombatsFC · 13/04/2014 at 23:10

        Hi Shinboner, I agree that he might plateau (geez this place is articulate) around 500k but I think the almost guaranteed 100+pts each week is more valuable than 50k and 'a possible ton'.

          Shinboner · 13/04/2014 at 23:20

          Valid argument, mate. I've definitely enjoyed having him on my team this season – one less thing to worry about. Great player, he is. The Bulldogs really struck gold with the 2012 draft! Macrae, Stringer, Hunter and Hrovat.

Emma · 13/04/2014 at 22:08

I love you guys, always a great pick me up Sunday after a shocking round

I will be going Webster to Crouch via mid swing non player I was using
Second trade will be Impey to Fasolo

    matt · 13/04/2014 at 22:47

    yeah agreed with that, will be a money making investment

Vasu · 13/04/2014 at 22:08

I am thinking of trading Tom Mitchell and Berne Vince this week or impey. Should I and if I do who would be good trade in options?

    WombatsFC · 13/04/2014 at 22:46

    I'd dump Mitchell for Macrae, actually thats my plan atmo

    may · 13/04/2014 at 22:48

    hold i reckon, one or two mofe weeks of mitchel doing this trade him out

    Jacob · 14/04/2014 at 09:05

    Tom Mitchell to Fasolo and Vince to Watson Selwood or Pendles.depending on your bank.

      Vasu · 15/04/2014 at 11:43

      Will fasolo be consistent though?

Mitch · 13/04/2014 at 22:09

What a terrible week! Got burnt by nearly my whole team!

    Dion · 13/04/2014 at 22:25

    Feeling those burn marks…. Ironic that the ultimate burn man Higgins was a saviour in the ultimate burn round.

KadeK is a jet · 13/04/2014 at 22:09

Great Podcast once again! These are the ng trades I am going for at the moment.

Trade 1: J. Caddy (Geelong) out Sam Lloyd (Richmond) in
X. Ellis (West Coast) out Sam Gray (Port Adelaide

Trade 2: J. Caddy (Geelong) out Sam Loyd (Richmond) in
Out any Rookies for example Langdon and bring in premiums..

Trade 3: J. Caddy (Geelong) out Parker or Rioli or another Forward premium in.
X.Ellis (west Coast) out Sam Gray in.

It is simple do I build up my cash or use trades to bring in premiums. Thanks to all that help.

Thanks for the help Community any advice accepted! Keep up the Good work Jock & Co. Loving it!!!!!

    Jake · 13/04/2014 at 22:22

    Mate Xavier Ellis still has some cash to make and gray has played just 1 game, maybe hold untill next week

      Kev · 13/04/2014 at 22:36

      Gray’s JS probably isn’t the best either. Wingard to come back in.

      With the way forward rookies have been this year I’m giving Lloyd another week to see that he’s not a flash in the pan. 3 goals and 22 posses is bloody promising though!

        Shinboner · 13/04/2014 at 23:08

        Mature-aged too!

    WombatsFC · 13/04/2014 at 22:53

    Hi THUMPER fan
    Trade 1 is a week too early. You trade arse off make money this week.
    Trade 2 makes $ and sense but I wouldn't expect more than 70 from Lloydy; I had him at F6 this week and was amazed that they left him alone for so long. But hey 70 is better than Caddy or Titchell.
    Trade 3 why not just beef up your mids with a Wines or Matt thomas these guys will give 100 every week and an extra 100 over the next 5

    may · 13/04/2014 at 22:53

    wait a week on lloyd,

    KadeK is a jet · 14/04/2014 at 11:55

    Thanks for the help. Will definitely trade out Caddy! But will wait till the end of the week to decide that. Don't think I'll make a second trade as my team is looking stronger than ever (or everyone else's is looking weaker due to mummy and co.) Just want to know what is going on with Nic Nat, will he play, why did he get subbed?????

Tom · 13/04/2014 at 22:10

how many trades have people used already?

    Mitch · 13/04/2014 at 22:11

              Donut King · 14/04/2014 at 19:02

              That was nice

    piewood1 · 13/04/2014 at 22:26

    if I get rid of Daisy for crouch & JKH for Fasolo that will leave me with 24 trades but most importantly 484k in the warchest to trade up to premiums during & after the bye rounds.

      Mick · 13/04/2014 at 22:53

      only way i will trade daisy is if his shoulder is stuffed

    WombatsFC · 13/04/2014 at 22:54

    All that I'm allowed. I trade arse off make points and $

      BundyBear · 13/04/2014 at 23:12

      LOL. Like ur thinking. I do the same cause i have to unfortunatly

    Lord Relton Roberts · 14/04/2014 at 11:00

    6 by the end of this week 🙁

    had luey hanley clurey rohan and ziebell who i am/was sorta forced to trade bloody rough start

medadsson · 13/04/2014 at 22:11

How ironic that Sandilands may well be the last ruckman standing!

    Mick · 13/04/2014 at 22:52

    hahaha i hear ya..i also have the "too risky" Hmac who is slowly building in value…ohhh i just remembered that sandi could be up for a striking charge for a high hit on travis colyer…fingers crossed..mind you i have hale in fwd line

    WombatsFC · 13/04/2014 at 22:55

    Mate that the second relevant and in context use of the word ironic in 10-minutes any yanks on here(throttle) will be having conniptions.

    Birdman · 13/04/2014 at 23:13

    Who would have thought Sandi and Sauce Jacobs would have been the most reliable tucks YTD??? 

      Sleepy · 14/04/2014 at 07:37

      I had Sandi as Captain this week thinking he would absolutely smash em, with the logic of no recognised Essendon rucks, home ground and Freo would bounce back big time after their debarcle last week. I was right on 2 counts but not the one the that actually mattered the most. Oh well it keeps it all interesting.

Big Dogs · 13/04/2014 at 22:14

Hanley to Swallow and Rohan to Lloyd. What you all think? Pretty standard trades but ya gotta do what ya gotta do. Any other option n opinions appreciated

    may · 13/04/2014 at 22:49

    hanley to jaensh majke more money,

    Mick · 13/04/2014 at 22:54

    Hanley tweeted he is hoping to get up for next weekend

      Birdman · 13/04/2014 at 23:16

      Thanks that news has probably just saved me a trade

      WombatsFC · 13/04/2014 at 23:19

      He meant get out of bed to watch the game on TV.

      Shinboner · 14/04/2014 at 00:11

      They've got the Thursday game, so that looks unlikely.

        SCaddict · 14/04/2014 at 01:45

        Reckon they'd be crazy to risk him on such a short turnaround even if it's just a strain.

    WombatsFC · 13/04/2014 at 22:58

    Swallow yes Lloyd no despite what the drunken Jock says Fasolo is the must trade in forward this week. If he was a first year mid rookie at that price and with that ave after 2-games we'd all be falling over ourselves to trade him in. But he's not, he's a mature aged proven high scorer. Hello Captain obvious.

      Mick · 13/04/2014 at 23:16

      100% spot on wombats! already traded rohan in for him

    Cozza · 13/04/2014 at 23:02

    Like the Hanley to Swallow trade – Swallow is top defender atm, but still fairly risky as he has not proven himself over a season yet. Hibberd and Simpson are safer trades, but I'd probably go Swallow if you don't have him already.

    Hold a week on Lloyd – see what he does next week before settling on him.

canman1306 · 13/04/2014 at 22:14

If I keep hanley and Mumford for the Next few weeks I will cop a Donut is it Worth doing that?
I reckon this wees trades are locked in unless something out of the ordinary.
Aish-> Crouch JKH->Fasolo

    throttlefinger · 13/04/2014 at 22:19

    Think so. I'm going to suffer through Mummy being out with the hopes Currie will get at least ONE FRACKIN game.

      canman1306 · 13/04/2014 at 22:30

      Haven't even got Currie Stuck with Bloody Fraser THurlow

        WombatsFC · 13/04/2014 at 23:03

        HayMac had his worst ever but he was against the forest that westcoast field each week so you expect a low one. Make some money get some points, conceding a donut for one week to wait for an injured player is ok 2-weeks or more is crazy.
        A donut is really a minus and if you get a donut in a position that you could have a 100pts player it takes 10-weeks of 110 scores to make up for it.

        throttlefinger · 13/04/2014 at 23:09

        Reconsidered after listening to podcast, Canman. I've known very few players to come back from knee surgery that quickly, especially carrying the load Mummy is. 3 weeks out for sure.

        This will be my 3rd ruck trade. All injury motivated. So it be…so I do.

    Mick · 13/04/2014 at 22:57

    Depends what your going for…league or the whole thing…….i think curry got dumped cause of the crap weather

      Birdman · 13/04/2014 at 23:20

      I agree Nth seem to be happy with the two ruck combo
      ATM but the weather in Sydney was not suited to too many talls.Currie back next week.

    WombatsFC · 13/04/2014 at 22:59

    C'mon Canman you that its suicide to hold onto them. You trade arse off win game.

    Cozza · 13/04/2014 at 23:05

    I'm going Aish > Crouch as well this week, but with Mummy out a couple of weeks at least, I would suggest getting another ruck in to cover his donut. You are missing 80-100 by not getting someone like Sauce in. I would hold on the JKH atm – he has a BE of 7 this week so may make a tiny bit of money next week, and can then bring Lloyd in for him if he proves himself again next week.

mick · 13/04/2014 at 22:16

hanley to hibberd or jeasnsch and 100k?

    Tom · 13/04/2014 at 22:27


      matt · 13/04/2014 at 22:36

      thanks tom

    WombatsFC · 13/04/2014 at 23:05

    I agree with Tom. I traded Clurey for him just before the bounce he's the perfect D5

Geoff · 13/04/2014 at 22:19

Leuy -> ????

Caddy -> fasolo


    matt · 13/04/2014 at 22:50

    leuy to jacobs

      Geoff · 13/04/2014 at 23:39

      Jacobs. I’ll do the math. Bloody hope I can afford him!!

      Is fasolo a viable trade? Or mid price trap?

        K'noath · 14/04/2014 at 12:38

        Trap. Wait one more week for Caddy>Lloyd instead. Get Jacobs now

    Sleepy · 14/04/2014 at 22:25

    Here is one to throw in. Luey to West as West is now solo ruckman at Brisbane and has average in the 80's while sharing the load with Luey. Around the same price too.

      WombatsFC · 15/04/2014 at 11:50

      Good Call.

Fabian · 13/04/2014 at 22:19

Can't wait to listen to this on the drive to work tomorrow. I've had my lowest score in about 3 years scoring below 2000. I've scored higher in DT then SC 🙁 and I've dropped over 10'00 places in rankings. Forced to trade caddy to Rioli after seein caddy as sub (was either him, parker or merret, happy with choice). Ultimate carnage with Luey and Hanley injured, Cotch/Buddy/Tmitchell 65 and under, on field rookies below 60! Arghh 🙁 Thought I was on track this year community, now I want to walk back to the trench and cry.

At least Fyfe returns for me this week and the risky mid price picks in Higgins/Wright/Suckling are paying off.

    may · 13/04/2014 at 22:50

    im hearing you mate

    Mick · 13/04/2014 at 23:00

    I made up 10,000…so a week is a long time mate…stick with it

Jarrad · 13/04/2014 at 22:21

So happy i didnt jump off Goldstein after he had that iffy shoulder injury, would have went straight to Mummy otherwise which would have caused even more headaches.

    matt · 13/04/2014 at 22:50

    smart move

William · 13/04/2014 at 22:25

Who to bring to forward line? I'm bloody sick of Franklin and Rohan, already brought in Fasolo and who else? I've got $432,600

    matt · 13/04/2014 at 22:51

    jackson merret looks good to make quickish money, and have saints next week

      WombatsFC · 13/04/2014 at 23:12

      Hi Matt, IMO he wont ave much more than 70 for rest of year; do you really want to pay 360k+ for 70 points?

        Shinboner · 13/04/2014 at 23:27

        I'm going to have to disagree, mate. Merrett's second half fadeaway shouldn't dictate expectations of him. He was as strong as ever in the first! Bomber loves the bloke – he wouldn't stop jabbering on about him in the preseason. At that price, you're probably not going to get a better option. Having said that, I wouldn't recommend a midpricer for William. Go straight down to Sam Lloyd and use the funds elsewhere.

    Simon · 13/04/2014 at 23:01

    rohan to lloyd will be a popular trade

    Mick · 13/04/2014 at 23:03

    Its starting to be hard to resist Nick Riewoldt

      Shinboner · 13/04/2014 at 23:13

      My thoughts exactly.

      WombatsFC · 13/04/2014 at 23:32

      Yeah Boomer is getting the arse real soon for Nikkers. Just after I get rid of Titchell

        Shinboner · 13/04/2014 at 23:36

        Boomer has always been pretty average against Sydney. Wouldn't read too much into it.

          WombatsFC · 13/04/2014 at 23:43

          I can't handle the roller coaster last week would've been a stinker also if not for his last qrtr I reckon I should take the cash and get someone who's reliable week in week out

      Azmataz · 14/04/2014 at 03:19

      Yeah I'm bringing Reiwoldt in this week. Its just gotta be done

    WombatsFC · 13/04/2014 at 23:06


    Bellybuttonfluff · 13/04/2014 at 23:29

    Hearin ya… Franklin giving me the sloppy runs too. But think maybe best to hold him. Will have to come good. No one kicked straight to him all game and was wet. Send Rohan rowing up shyt creek.

Danners16 · 13/04/2014 at 22:29

Hey guys, had a terrible week like many after a good start
Def-S.Mitchell, P.Hanley, D.Swallow, M.Jaensch, T.Langdon, L.McDonald (J.Laidler, A.Georgiou)
Mid-G.Ablett, D.Beams, L.Shuey, M.Murphy, D.Tyson, L.Dunstan, J.Polec, X.Ellis (J.Kelly, H.Cunningham)
Ruck-S.Jacobs, A.Sandilands (T.Derickx, F.Thurlow)
Fwd-P.Dangerfield, N.Riewoldt, D.Martin, L.Parker, D.Zorko, J.Caddy (L.Taylor, J.Impey)
$140,500 in the bank
What do I do?
Thoughts would be great thanks

    Kev · 13/04/2014 at 22:43

    Injury concern with Hanley. Wait until later in the week to see how many he'll miss.

    For mine, caddy has to go. That 20-odd with be in his system now for a few weeks and he was already struggling with a b.e/ave. I like your forward set up, you could go down to someone like fasolo or grab another 450kish player to round out your forward line, Your call

    matt, · 13/04/2014 at 22:52

    hanley to okeefe/hibberd/simpson

    maybe get swan in your team in the next few weeks for dunstan/ellis

    yesIdohavebacon · 14/04/2014 at 01:03

    caddy > lloyd

    langdon or georgiou > guthrie
    or murphy > jelwood/pendles for vc/c loop

Tom · 13/04/2014 at 22:35


    matt · 13/04/2014 at 22:42

    hold wait for griffin, swan, okeefe are in the price bracket

pfft · 13/04/2014 at 22:43

What's the bloody story with reverse trades this season? I grabbed Currie for some Mummy cover, he was named on the ground all week, then half an hour before the game I see he's a late out. "No worries" I think, simply hit "reverse" and swap him back for Holmes (Stk rookie who wasn't going to play) as I'm well up and will cop the donut. But no, the reverse trade option is not available… so wtf is going on? The bloody reverse trade was introduced last season for this very situation (last minute outs), absolute joke SC.

    Bellybuttonfluff · 13/04/2014 at 23:34

    Reverse don't work after 1st game. Found that out myself after trade in laidler then not play.

    sputnik · 14/04/2014 at 01:16

    you can only reverse trade up until the first bounce of the round- not each game. after that there is no reverse trade. once the round has officially started there is no reversing fullstop.

      pfft · 14/04/2014 at 10:06

      well that is utter bs, last season we were able to reverse up until the start of any game.

    David · 14/04/2014 at 10:56

    I did the same hickey to mummy then found out couldn't reverse even thou St Kilda haven't played….think that's so wrong!!!!!

    Jason · 14/04/2014 at 11:19

    I did the same thing …. i traded out McEvoy to Mumford before the Carlton v Melbourne game and an hour later find out that Mumford was out …..knew i couldnt reverse trade but i think it should be allowed especially if the player you bring in is a late withdrawal compared to not being picked at all ……

WombatsFC · 13/04/2014 at 22:43

Well done gentlemen that was definitely worth the wait.
The Hansel and Gretel analogy should be saved for future generations as an example of how reading a seemingly non-football story can transform your team into supercoach champions.

Josh · 13/04/2014 at 22:48

thoughts on having lewis taylor as an F6? don't see any good forward options for caddy so im thinking of swapping caddy to mid with lewis taylor and caddy down to matt crouch?

    haydyn · 13/04/2014 at 22:55

    yeh npow thats smart thinking

Tracy · 13/04/2014 at 22:49

Thinking of trading out Hanley and Daisy to get Ablett and then Laidler.. thoughts?

    jack · 13/04/2014 at 23:12

    do whatever to get ablettt in

    Azmataz · 14/04/2014 at 03:11

    Do it

pfft · 13/04/2014 at 22:59

What's this podcast talk on bringing in Crouch when Sam Gray just had a 104 in his first game?

    Cozza · 13/04/2014 at 23:13

    S Gray is not on the bubble yet – still has a week to go for his price rise. If he performs well, can bring Gray in next week. Crouch is on the bubble, so will never get him this cheap again.

    Michael · 13/04/2014 at 23:14

    Wait another game for Gray as he won’t go up in price until he’s played 3 games. Also you get another game to see if he’s the real deal. He may have a stinker and not get picked again afterwards, thereby wasting a trade. Also what happens if he’s injured 2nd game? Again a wasted trade. Should always wait until after 2nd game for rookies – golden rule.

      Mick · 13/04/2014 at 23:26

      I agree…it will be either lloyd or gray next week…apparently lloyd racked up 30 for port magpies last weekend so does have potential

    WombatsFC · 13/04/2014 at 23:30

    Fair question pfft, Crouch aint gonna bring much more than 70pts to the table so he's bench material at best and then you have to hope you don't need him.
    The only Crows we should be lookin at this week are Sauce and Jeansch

Thomas · 13/04/2014 at 23:06

Daisy –> Crouch
Impey –> Hoff / Rough / Breust ?????????????????????????????????????
who would average more from here on out? thinking breust, want your opinions in this matter, fwd: danger, dust, parker, cyril, higgins, taylor, impey, ambrose

    Daniel · 14/04/2014 at 02:12

    Bruest, does it all and has gone up a level this year.

JB · 13/04/2014 at 23:07

Hanley to who?

S Mitchell, Hodge, K Simpson thoughts …

    jack · 13/04/2014 at 23:12

    definitly mitchell mate, like the look of scotty thompson from north as a pod

    Cozza · 13/04/2014 at 23:12

    Mitchell, then Simpson, then Hodge

    Jason · 14/04/2014 at 11:22

    If you want to generate some cash keep in mind Frawley ….

Hey Jock
On my question i asked in the podcast.
What if i could trade JKH to Crouch?

throttlefinger · 13/04/2014 at 23:15

Solid as always gents. Wish Jock was in a better state, but I had a tough weekend as well so understand.

Mummy will be gone more than 2 weeks. Knee surgery recovery for giants (pun intended) take a little longer. Don't recoup as fast, especially on load bearing parts.

Between Caddy and Webster as 2nd out. Strong lean towards Caddy as he will continue to bleed money. Going to spend savings and go up instead of down. Either Parker, Westoff or Wingard. Thoughts?

    WombatsFC · 13/04/2014 at 23:28

    Hi Throttle, I feel for ya mate you copped a caning from that slut lady luck. Dump Caddy should be philosophy followed by all who have him.
    As far as luck is concerned sometimes you have to say "c'mon bitch give it your best shot" and then pull something from behind the sofa. Perhaps it will be your preseason research with big asterisk's next to a bloke who hasn't been mentioned since the round 1 teams were announced and who poses a significant risk, but hey Boomer, Titchell and Caddy have all stunk it up at least twice already this season so this forgotten name on the crumpled paper can't do any worse. Ladyluck will see your actions and say "Hmm.. you man you have balls" and she'll smile at you and show a little more thigh.

      throttlefinger · 13/04/2014 at 23:44

      Yeah, I'll need to see a lot of flank, my good friend. Thanks for the words. Lethal in their wisdom as always.

      You know, there's a tendency in this caper to focus on the stains than the successes. Sure Webster was horrible and Caddy disappointed again. But Houli stepped up big and Higgins went ton. So some risks paid off some did not. And injuries, well, those are just part of the game and you have to live with it.

      Sometimes you have to take a step back and look at the whole picture to really gain true perspective. And you have given me that, my man. Thanks.

      So goodbye Caddy and Mummy. And hello Round 5. Beware because you have a freight train that has no intention of slowing down coming your way.

        WombatsFC · 13/04/2014 at 23:54

        Great philosophy throttle, everyone suffered so lets stop feeling sorry for ourselves. Our prospective cash cows may have droppped a 'steamin james hird' on our fwd line but there is a flower growing through it.

          throttlefinger · 14/04/2014 at 00:08

          Thanks buddy. Hate having to drop a third ruck but injuries are killing me. Should've stuck fat with Wright instead of Caddy. Live and learn.

            WombatsFC · 14/04/2014 at 00:21

            Yeah I went Wright for Zorko 2 weeks ago when I really wanted to go Caddy for Zorko but I was sucked in by Jock and the 'general consensus'.

            I'm seriously thinking about accepting fault and turning Titch back into wright because as you know I TRADED CADDY FOR LLOYD, (and advised all on this forum that they do the same) BEFORE the first bounce so, I don't need to trade him in.

              throttlefinger · 14/04/2014 at 00:28

              We should've went against the grain, Womby. Threw on some Powerage, cranked Riff Raff and smiled awhiled to next round.

              In fact, next time in a rut, I suggest we both have Bon and the boys on when we talk trades.

                WombatsFC · 14/04/2014 at 00:43

                Powerage is my favourite album. Up to my neck was my final pre-game song for more than 10-years ("up to my neck in wishing that this dick wasn't mine" is effing brilliant) and Downpayment Blues is Bon at his poetic best "..feelin' like a papercup floating down a storm drain" is a great analagy for how most coaches feel after this weekend.

                  throttlefinger · 14/04/2014 at 00:51

                  Bon is by far my favorite lead singer and probably one of my favorite songwriters. Oozes rock top to bottom.

                    WombatsFC · 14/04/2014 at 01:04

                    IMO the greatest rock singer/songwriter of all time, and I proudly wear the scars of defending that opinion through the late 80's and early 90's; along with the scars I earned when AC/DC fans trashed Eaglehawk Town Hall in the late 70's after they'd had RocknRoll banned from the Bendigo Town Hall on their previous tour. They were also kicked out of Mildura and 'banned from the city limits' on the tour that included the Eaglehawk concert.
                    I copped another scar at the first concert in Melbourne after Bon died; the last concert with Bon at Melbourne Myer Music had rock music banned from the venue and the Back in Black tour was the first time it was allowed back, big issue with fans breaking down fences to get in rolling brawls etc rock banned from venue again. LOL.

                    WombatsFC · 14/04/2014 at 01:11

                    I reckon that AC/DC also introduced what is now known as Punk Rock with Powerage tracks 'Kicked in the teeth' and 'Up to My Neck'
                    AND the very first Rapp song was not written by Bob Dylan it was penned years earlier by Bon Scott 'R.I.P' off Dirty Deeds

                WombatsFC · 14/04/2014 at 00:49

                The 'If You Want Blood' version of Riff Raff is my preferred version but I'm a sucker for the youngs goin nuts.

                  Dave2008 · 14/04/2014 at 05:21

                  Have to agree that early ACDC was classic rock Bullet to Bite On, Gone Shootin etc cant get enough of those kind of tracks. There was no one like Bon and there never will be. Didnt have the trappings of fame and just a legend. I mean walking to the gig through the crowd wearing just a pair of jeans and then to be photographed doing so. The VH1 Behind the Music special is essential viewing. Totally distracted me from my trade thoughts but great work!

        WombatsFC · 14/04/2014 at 00:00

        I know your mob love the Cryptic crosswords so, When the first young brother and a mate decided to have a second crack they called themselves after this Essendon forward.

          throttlefinger · 14/04/2014 at 00:05

          Having an "Ambrose"?

            WombatsFC · 14/04/2014 at 00:08

            Harry Vanda George Young 'Flash in the Pan' late 70's. I reckon Merret is a

              WombatsFC · 14/04/2014 at 00:12

              A 'Flash in the Pan' is a gold rush term referring to the dashed high hopes gold-panners had when they saw a flash in the pan, only to later learn it was the sun reflecting off quartz crystal or iron pyrites

              throttlefinger · 14/04/2014 at 00:12

              Power producers, ha! Love the AC/DC ref.

                WombatsFC · 14/04/2014 at 00:22

                Yeah I should have said "The oldest young brother"

            WombatsFC · 14/04/2014 at 00:25

            Try another.
            The new name for the Carlton Football Club is shared by the oldest young brothers first band.

              throttlefinger · 14/04/2014 at 00:30


              Don't think I've heard any of their stuff. Any good? Or just interesting to hear what point A sounded like?

              Kind of like Billy Joel's metal band Attila before he struck out solo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L7s8PHnCTGI

                WombatsFC · 14/04/2014 at 00:46

                I might have history wrong but I meant george young and harry vanda's 'The Easybeats' 1960's Friday on my mind.

                  throttlefinger · 14/04/2014 at 00:50

                  Have to hunt that out. Love obscure 60s/70s rock. Use to do a radio show that was mostly that type of music.

                    WombatsFC · 14/04/2014 at 01:17

                    Friday on my mind was released in the late 1960's during Beatlemania and the legend is that Paul McCartney heard the track on the radio whilst in a limousine on the way home from Heathrow airport. Apparently he told the driver to find a telephone box he then called the radio station and demanded that they play the track again immediately or risk never playing a Beatles song again.

                    WombatsFC · 14/04/2014 at 01:27

                    Easy to see hear 'young type' riff. The singer Stevie Wright OD'd a few years back but had a massive 1970's hit with "Evie parts 1,2,3" George and Harry were instrumental in that also.

                    throttlefinger · 14/04/2014 at 01:42


                    Wow. Will have to seek out.

    sputnik · 14/04/2014 at 01:19

    i heard it wasnt surgery as such. more just an open and drain. i dont think it was like anything was damaged or repaired. just a little bit of exploratory surgey maybe.

      throttlefinger · 14/04/2014 at 01:42

      Yeah, it seems light yet 3 weeks total to recoup and his shoulder has been nagging him. Might just be best to cut bait, Sputnik. I'd rather deal with now then have a donut for 3 weeks.

        SCaddict · 14/04/2014 at 02:17

        Yeah has to go for mine unless he makes a miracle recovery this week. Sort of thing that can go from 1-2 to 2-3 to 3-4 weeks before you know it.

        Geez mate not having a great run with Ryder, Lids and now Mummy. Of course Currie had to be a late out to top things off for you.

        Please don't trade in Sauce Jacobs, who I have, or he may be next!

        I'm still battling away 35,000 odd but I'm 2-0 in the prestigious Throttledome woohoo! 🙂

          throttlefinger · 14/04/2014 at 02:29

          Yeah, you and Wombats are slaying in the Tdome. 15th in my own league?!?! Yes, this won't stand. Predict the house I will win this week!

          Settle your nerves, SCaddict, I'm not going to trade in Sauce. Going another way so I can upgrade Caddy. Most likely to Pav. Next 3 of 5 games in Perth.

          Currie was the final pop in the plums for sure. Frustrating last couple rounds but mostly things not in my control. Can't get too wracked. Only in-season blemish is trading out Wright instead of Caddy. Went against gut. Lesson learned. Soldier on.

            chandanrajdb · 14/04/2014 at 10:55


            Just a thought….is anyone giving any thought on ROUND 8 BYES…….the players we are looking to bring in (M Crouch, A Fasolo, S Lloyd) all have ROUND 8 BYES……Not sure whether we do consider this or not……thoughts community…..

            TF….I am in your league as well mate…..Team name "TITANS"…sitting on top of the league ladder………going pretty well at the moment…..scored 2257 and pushed the overall rank to 538…..woo hoo…..still a long way to go though……

            Didn't do any trades last week as well…….going all right at the moment…..26 trades left….not sure on the bringing in RD8 bye players though…….which will have a significant impact with respect to overall rankings…..

            My thoughts on that is….i will only be trading out J Caddy to A Fasolo (both have RD 8 bye) wouldn't change in terms no. of players out during RD 8 bye with this trade…..this is the one trade which is absolutely confirmed this week…..enough of CADDY….lesson learnt is NEVER PICK the fringe players from CATS team…..ONLY PICK THE GUNS of the cats team like J Selwwod, Stevie J, Enright, Mackie etc……they have got too much of depth….you cant predict what they do week in week out…..every week it will be bit different with the team structure…..based on so many reason…….AND YES I AM A CATS FAN…..

            And regarding bringing in M Crouch…..seriously….the questions raises regarding the RD 8 bye….what do we do…..and yes next week to bring in S Lloys (RD 8 Bye player as well)…..

            IMO…..some has to raise this issue…..or is it an issue?…..

            COMMUNITY……need all the opinions / comments / thoughts……


              Josh · 14/04/2014 at 13:56

              Structure will be key for your side as you are so highly ranked. Don't bring in round 8 bye rookies. Go with your gut.

              throttlefinger · 14/04/2014 at 19:07

              If you're going for the 50K, which you are Raj, then Rd 8 byes should be a top of mind now. I am not. Ranked 17K. Going for league wins. So not as big of concern. OK with going in a little in R8. Hoping other competitors that week do as well.

              Caddy. Ugh. Made a bad decision keeping him in instead of Wright. Needs to go this week. Either going up or down. Really depends if I'm going to stick with Mummy or not. 50/50 on that at this point.

              Raj, you're kicking ass in leagues and rank. Keep rawkin it, my man!

                chandanrajdb · 14/04/2014 at 21:19

                Hey TF,

                Thanks for your comments mate…..I don't think that you are out of the race mate….not yet IMO…..still lot of time left in this season……


                  throttlefinger · 14/04/2014 at 21:25

                  Appreciate the supportive words but don't think there's ever been anyone who was ranked 17,000 who rallied to win SC. Have not given up on putting the best team out there but safe to say mathematically out of contention.

                  Is Caddy your only concern? If so, kudos to you, sir.

                    chandanrajdb · 14/04/2014 at 21:35

                    Have you seen my team???

                    You can see it…Team Name TITANS….and I am in your league "Throttledome"

                    My problem at the moment is Caddy and couple of FWD rookies. I am not too worried with the rookies (Impey & JKH) because there is still time to bring in Lloyd next week to one of those rookies.

                    DEF is bit week but will wait till my rookies fatten up instead of just trading for the sake of it….no point in doing the trades when the bye rounds are just around the corner unless you got some serious injury issues in your team….my approach is simple…..set a value to every trade you make…..just don't make the trade to chase the points….one down and one up….seems to work everytime….2nd year (proper) in supercoach and learnt a lot last year mate…..had no trades after RD 19 last year…but still finished within top 600 overall last year….all credit goes to JR community…..great community….


                    throttlefinger · 14/04/2014 at 21:45

                    Yeah, I think you're being a bit hard on your team. It is pretty damn strong, esp the backline. Mine is deteriorating, due to miscall on Webster and Roos switching Dunn to forward line (did well first two round in back).

                    And your forward line is the same. Trouble areas are mostly your benches, which in reality is not that significant of a problem.

                    But appreciate the encouraging words. And agree would not be doing good at all if not for the community. Hands down best fantasy footy site out there.

Michael · 13/04/2014 at 23:16

Downgrading Murph to Crouch – thoughts?

    throttlefinger · 13/04/2014 at 23:30

    I'd wait. Especially since Judd is coming back. Too good of a player. If not better 90+ in next two against WCE and Dogs, might unload…because will get the human glove when they play Pies after.

      Michael · 14/04/2014 at 17:42

      when's Judd back?

        throttlefinger · 14/04/2014 at 19:10

        Talk is they may bring him back this week.

    Autofelatio · 13/04/2014 at 23:32

    Don't move Murphy to Crouch, surely there are some better candidates in your. The Smurph has only had a bad 2 weeks I believe but is proven and will strike back. Keep the faith you picked him for a reason!

      WombatsFC · 13/04/2014 at 23:35

      This mans name might suggest that he never spends anytime watching footy but his words are genuine wisdom.

    WombatsFC · 13/04/2014 at 23:34

    My true thoughts shouldn't be published so, no.

    Mick · 13/04/2014 at 23:37

    never trade a prem unless its a LTI

      Rocksta · 14/04/2014 at 01:41

      Smurfett IS NOT a premium.

    SCaddict · 14/04/2014 at 01:15

    Reckon you have to hold on to Murphmellow. You have to take the bad with the good. Think people expected too much from him.

    He's no longer an elite scorer in my view, with Juddy no longer the kingpin to take opposition attention away from him, but should still get you an average around 95 which aint dreadful for $500K.

      sputnik · 14/04/2014 at 01:42

      yeh, murphy aint that soft. him and cotchin got mugged by a marshmellow last night but they walked away from it, a little battered and bruised, but they survived.

Autofelatio · 13/04/2014 at 23:36

Hmm i must say I haven't been too annoyed by JKH, he's only had one full AFL game apart from the one NAB challenge game. The more full games he gets the better he should score, and I feel he'll eventually provide you with not a lot but an ok amount of cash. Loved that analogy with Hansel Jock you beautiful beast of a man.

Jack · 13/04/2014 at 23:38

Hey community,
It's been great to be apart of this place but I just can't deal with it anymore. After 10 scores below 60, scoring my lowest score for 4 seasons of 1860 I have decided to hang up my boots for now and wait until next year if I have recovered in time. I have had enough seeing other teams pulling scores out of nowhere amd finally buddy can get f*****.

    Mick · 13/04/2014 at 23:41

    haahahaha thats the attitude!

    WombatsFC · 13/04/2014 at 23:48

    See ya Jack, don't let the door hit your arse on the way out.

    SCaddict · 14/04/2014 at 01:10

    C'mon mate Higgo got 1872 and is not packing in the towel just yet. There's a long way to go and still league glory at stake. It was the round from hell for most of us.

    It's how we deal with adversity that defines us.

    sputnik · 14/04/2014 at 01:32

    the question is- how many sideways trades have you done? how close to your original team is your team at the moment? most people feel that way coz they keep chasing last weeks score but never can. maybe instead of giving up just dont trade for a few weeks then come back. maybe just focus on bringing in crouch and fasaol this week, lloyd and gray next week and before you know it you have 500K to play with.

    Also heres one MAJOR tip!!! Dont compare yourself to the top 1000 teams. Many of them overtrade early and end up plummeting down the ranks later on after wasteful trades, and alot lose their finals aswell. And plus the reality is only one person can win it- and thats all based on luck of your starting team.

    People who started with all of wright, jaensch, merret, macrae, higgins in their team were pretty lucky coz none are that great- just have potential. And we all have a couple of them- but some seem to have started with most of them. I guess a little skill involved but more luck coz NAB means nothing usually.

    Plus all the risky players you dont really want in your team. Mummy, Hodge, Franklin, Chappy, Rioli, Lecras, Higgins, Sandi, SJ- theyre all gonna miss weeks. Just luck so far that Sandi hasnt gone down and higgins either. And rioli. His hammy will pop, Franklin will get suspended and so will SJ, hodge always misses weeks and so does mummy.

    The supercoach devil is reigning this week but dont let him get you down!!!

      The Ranger · 14/04/2014 at 01:35

      Nicely put Sputnik, it's early days….

      sputnik · 14/04/2014 at 01:35

      Just my opinion so but dont give up mate.

    Azmataz · 14/04/2014 at 03:03

    Take a teaspoon of cement and harden up Jack. It can only get better mate! Chin up

Matt · 13/04/2014 at 23:42

Would love to get in Sam Lloyd, Sam Gray, Matt Crouch, Fasolo & maybe Pat Cripps in the coming weeks.

So im thinking this week go Daisy Thomas >> Crouch & JKH/Impey (depending on breakevens) >> Fasolo,
then next week take my pick of two out of Gray, Lloyd & Cripps after seeing them for another week.

Thoughts community?

    MightyDonsFC · 13/04/2014 at 23:46

    Gray doesn't have good JS

    WombatsFC · 13/04/2014 at 23:49

    If you trade Gaz you can have em all and 100k to spend on TV snacks.

MightyDonsFC · 13/04/2014 at 23:45

Patrick Cripps JS? Thinking of bringing him in for michie

Phil · 13/04/2014 at 23:58

bruest roughed or westhoff?

    yesIdohavebacon · 14/04/2014 at 01:15

    HOFFF!!, if only to make watching his hangers that little bit sweeter…

Scythe · 14/04/2014 at 00:02

Dale "I play like a daisy" Thomas
Josh "Let me carry your bag sir, as I am good for nothing else" Caddy
Tom "I should have picked Luke Parker" Mitchell

Who are the two biggest priorities to give the flick? One will become Crouch, one will become a premium. Have Lewis Taylor in the mids, so he can be swung forward.

    SCaddict · 14/04/2014 at 00:49

    I'd say Caddy first and then Daisy right behind him. Relieved I've already dumped both myself and Round 4 certainly didn't throw up anything to make me regret it. 100% pure burn men through and through. Perfect trade bait for Crouch and Fasolo/LLoyd.

    Would give Titch at least one more week to turn things around.

      sputnik · 14/04/2014 at 01:34

      Id keep Daisy coz he looks the goods. Caddy was sub today and will be lucky to get 3 tons out of him, and Titchell was subbed out last week, played pretty average all year and wouldnt be surprised if he was rested or vested next week.

    Josh · 14/04/2014 at 14:09

    Hahaha the Tom Mitchell one is the best!

Adam · 14/04/2014 at 00:22

Goddard, dunstan, Kelly, dunstan or polec to give the flick to crouch

So I can afford carthy to fa solo?

    SCaddict · 14/04/2014 at 00:55

    May as well be BJ with the busted adductors. If he plays next week (which looks iffy) he will likely be restricted to some degree and his output probably curtailed, plus you'll be running the risk of him being subbed again and losing a bundle more cash.

    Those rookies will continue to appreciate so I'd cull the lame bull rather than the fattening calves unless the medical reports say he's absolutely 100% recovered and fully trains during the week, and only then might I think about keeping him. Groins are tricky injuries.

    Azmataz · 14/04/2014 at 02:55

    Goddard. Hes gone for ages

Dogs · 14/04/2014 at 00:30

Wish I had 5 trades this week, I'd reset my whole forward line and get rid of Rohan, caddy, titch, danger, JKH.

Got rid wright 2 weeks ago and kicking myself it should have been caddy, and my coin toss at the start of the season of titch over Parker FMSC

    Azmataz · 14/04/2014 at 02:54

    Yeah Im getting rid of Titch this week. Upgrading to Nick Reiwoldt. Sick of sub 100 scores.

Sulzeer · 14/04/2014 at 00:55

Big Drew Petrie. signs of life in the big fella this week, breakeven of 129 this week, not saying he will get there but could go bloody close, having a bit of spare coin around, is it too early to go caddy to Big Drew or should I wait a week? 414k is super cheap, would be upgrading to a premium at a midpricer price…

    Josh · 14/04/2014 at 14:11

    what about cloke, his output must pick up at some stage

      Sulzeer · 15/04/2014 at 09:07

Do I trade Hanely to Jaensch.? Or should i hold on Hanely and play Langdon on the Ground.?

    WombatsFC · 14/04/2014 at 01:34

    I think it depends on what you do with the $ you make from the Hanley to Jeansch deal. IMO Jaensch is the equivalent to Walker when he finally found a high possession role; everybody doubted that it would continue as he pumped out ton after ton so, I reckon pts for pts it's a good trade. But unless you use the extra $ to cover a hole elsewhere it's not a good trade and you should get suckling instead.

      Bray · 14/04/2014 at 01:41

      Thanks mate, already have suckling. Any other thoughts.?

Will Eefting · 14/04/2014 at 01:25

Im a bit worried community, going from Mumford to big sauce Jacobs could be just jumping from problem to problem. Lets remember Jacobs started well last year with three 100's in the first four matches – and went on to average a dismal 85 for the whole year. Also, Minson and Goldstein have flown under the radar this year. They were the two best ruckman last year average approximately 113.5 points and it would be a easy swap to either of them.

Mumford undertook a minor (very minor) surgery at approximately 4:57pm on Saturday afternoon. Leon Cameron, coach of Greater Western Sydney, clearly stated that he will miss maybe one or two weeks. NOT FOUR. I implore to the community to hold Mumford if you have Currie, Derickx or Nakervis (Who I suspect will get a game this weekend due to Derickx shittiness).

But, what on earth are we to do with Jimmy Webster?

    WombatsFC · 14/04/2014 at 01:30

    Cash converters will give you $20 for Jimmy.

SCaddict · 14/04/2014 at 01:27

As a Swans supporter I'm not entirely surprised by Mummy going down again. Has never played more than 19 games in a season.

But was strange to hear in the press conference immediately after Rd 3, where he dominated, say that he was feeling healthy and his knees had never felt better. Then just 7 days later his knees have blown up and having minor surgery.

    Rocksta · 14/04/2014 at 02:03

    Hey SC, what are your thoughts on Titch down to Fas?
    Titch is not a premium so I figure I may as well take the $230K on offer.


      SCaddict · 14/04/2014 at 02:26

      Well I'm keeping the faith for now Rocksta. Partly because I have other fish to fry, namely upgrading Webster to someone who actually knows how to find the footy….like lets see….Swallow! as well as getting young Crouchy into my side.

      Don't blame those who punt him though. Has had a pretty disappointing couple of weeks and Fasolo's BE does beckon. If you don't have other trade priorities then it has to be looked at. Certainly if he gets dropped or starts inheriting the green vest then it will be a tough ask to carry him.

    throttlefinger · 14/04/2014 at 02:15

    I remember the press bit as well. And the game he just played before that he was playing like a man possessed.

    While I know the surgery is minor, being out 3 weeks total with a R3 who is not getting any PT is not good. Can't do 3 rounds of donuts.

Scott · 14/04/2014 at 01:32

I wouldn’t be too hasty on Merrett for what is one bad half, out of 8 halves he’s played this year.
Essendon were well beaten mid/fwd, for first time this season.

My money is on this to be the exception rather than the rule.
There’s a lot of heat rising atm, best not to be making rage trades/decisions on players on a Sunday night.

The Ranger · 14/04/2014 at 01:40

Well that was an arse of a week…
All was ticking along nicely but this week I'm gonna have to trade to stay in the game.
Whats the thoughts on HMac? Will he last?
And I know Llyod looked ok but how's his job security?
This week could be crucial to a lot of peoples seasons methinks.

Rocksta · 14/04/2014 at 01:46

What to do with Nic Nat?
He simply cannot be fit with these sorts of scores.
He's bleeding money profusely and will soon reach the point of no return, if he hasn't already.

    SCaddict · 14/04/2014 at 02:42

    Not a great spot to be with NicNat that's for sure. As painful as it will be think you have to cut your losses there and make a move now whilst you still can.

    Sauce looks the best alternative right now if you can extend yourself maybe through that Titch trade you are considering or perhaps by bringing in Crouch if you don't already have him.

    Azmataz · 14/04/2014 at 02:49

    Get rid of him. Trade to Sauce, which is what I did instead of jumping on the Mummy train…who has missed a game already. He gets solid 110s each week and is more consistent that NicNat. Too much competition in the WC ruck division now.

Kane · 14/04/2014 at 01:55

Im going daisy to matt Thomas this week. I don’t care that he has made most of his cash he scores 100 every week i was going to do it when matt was on the bubble every one is like stick with daisy… no its time to get off. At a 6k difference matt Thomas is the superior Thomas and will still make more cash and net you more points.

I lucked out last week with longer getting a game when mumford withdrew last minute so hopefully he will play till the big man is back.

    SCaddict · 14/04/2014 at 02:52

    Yes good riddance to Daisy. No where close to producing anything even semi respectable against the worst team over the past decade.

    Eventually he will "get there" assuming the body holds together but is a Supercoach pariah as far as our interests go.

    I was making the case here to get rid of him of last week but many folk were still clinging to the hope of a Daisy tonne against the Dees, well what excuses are we left with now hey! I brought in Kelly last week who made $50K (and likely $50K again this week according to the projection) and outscored Daisy whilst he did it.

    I'd personally downgrade him to Crouch if you don't have him already but if you truly believe the other Thomas will maintain a tonne average then go with it, for whatever it takes to leave Daisy in your dust I say!

Jarrad · 14/04/2014 at 01:57

Will most likely go Tyson>Crouch this week. BE of 38 and a reduced output over the last couple of weeks has me worried.

Most likely Rohan>Lloyd next week(yes i have Rohan, yes i know im a muppet). Heres hoping Rohan can make his BE of 54 thi…..HAHAHAHAHAHAH i couldnt even finish that sentence, hes not getting anywhere near 54.

Already jumped on the Fasolo train last week, was no option with all the fwd rooks very shaky.

Dogs · 14/04/2014 at 02:00

Jock must have had way too many beers, recommending to trade out polec, who for mine is averaging more than any of my other rookies and still has a negative BE, but sit on JKH and not corrective trade him out for someone who can make money

    SCaddict · 14/04/2014 at 03:11

    I agree with Jock that Crouch should be the priority trade in target this week. Daisy would be the perfect candidate for the job but if you don't have him or for some god forsaken reason want to hang on to him the vexing question then becomes which or your prized rookie cash cows make way for young Matty.

    I'll probably be offloading Ellis myself as don't think he has quite the tonne up capacities of Tyson, Dunstan and Polec but it's a tricky one and there's a decent chance you'll get it wrong in hindsight.

      Dogs · 14/04/2014 at 15:05

      I have to get rid of caddy and Rohan, they are going backwards and losing money when 1 was supposed to be a quick upgrade option and the other a money generating rookie. I don't have any swing men in the mids to move forward so I'm going to have to miss out on crouch, if I didn't have such a poor performing fwd line I would have traded out Tyson for crouch, as tysons BE is up to nearly 40 now and his scores are dropping every week

        bob · 14/04/2014 at 22:03


          what · 14/04/2014 at 22:06

    WombatsFC · 15/04/2014 at 11:53

    Yeah Jock was Smashed and obviously not coping with low rank of his team; maybe he's trying to get others to pull the ludicrous trade of a Polec, Tyson etc to Crouch.
    Crouch = M10 scoring 70's
    Fasolo = F6 scoring 80-100

    In a season where forwards have been harder to find than an honest politician Fasolo is the obvious choice.

Azmataz · 14/04/2014 at 02:45

I am thinking of sorting my forwards out this week. Sick of getting the rubbish score of either JKH, Impey or Taylor. However, i am still going to wait until they make a bit more cash.
Daisy hasn't broke 100 in his first 4 games, and neither has T Mitchell, so am going to swing Taylor to the mid bench and bring in Fasolo and Nick Reiwoldt.
Any thoughts? I am pretty happy with an extra rookie being on the park in the mids, and think that the fwds have to be sorted first.

Adam · 14/04/2014 at 03:23

I've made 2 trades every week so far dammit FMSC

My original team was so bad…..

JB · 14/04/2014 at 05:38

Jaensch, Macrae, J Merrett, M Thomas, D Swallow are the Brendon Ellis of 2014 so far, thoughts on the next crop to look out for …

    yes I do hav bacon · 14/04/2014 at 09:53

    Brandon Ellis may be the next Brandon Ellis.

Callum · 14/04/2014 at 06:55

G’day guys. I’ve got 595k if I trade daisy out of my team. I am already definitely going caddy to Fasolo so I’m wondering whether to get Matt crouch for daisy or a non round 8 bye premo(e.g Watson, treloar, macrae, fyfe, wines and a few others in that sort of region, need some thoughts on who to get as a premo) So should I get crouch or premo? I’m leaning towards crouch

    Cam_H · 14/04/2014 at 14:39

    I've done the same trade and in almost exactly 'the same boat' as your situation Callum.

    I'm tearing through trades faster than I want, so I'm probably going to hang on to Dale Thomas and see what happens with the rookies (specifically, Port's Sam Gray) next week. Thomas isn't (yet) bleeding cash and (arguably) has the potential to score better than he's done so far, but with that said, I can't see +$60,000 happening too quickly through his efforts as you can with a host of other players.

    Anyway – interested to hear of the community's thought's on Callum's question. :O)

      Wattsieesq · 14/04/2014 at 16:02

      The key to SC is to get to a full complement of premiums as soon as possible. Will trading down to crouch and then to a premium get you there quicker than trading straight to a premium?

    chandanrajdb · 14/04/2014 at 16:14

    OUT: Caddy & Daisy

    IN: Fasolo & Watson / Fyfe / Rockliff – make a call b/w these guys……go for the proven premium in your mid…..instead of going to likes of Macrae / Treloar etc….and again use one more trade to get a premium….

    Just my thoughts…..


Sarah · 14/04/2014 at 08:00

OMG, what a week!!! Managed to catch the Mumford out in time and traded him for Jacobs. Thank god I did because my only real backup was Currie and then he was pulled out pre-game as well.

This week's trades are locked in:
Michie to Crouch
Caddy to Riewoldt!!!

Luke · 14/04/2014 at 08:12

Who is the 2 most important to trade out
I have Rohan (on the bench), Mumford, Hanley and Michie

    Kev · 14/04/2014 at 09:15

    Hanley – injury report pending
    Michie – plenty on mid rookies playing and making cash – crouch is an option. Michie wasn't all that great anyway

    Beady Eye · 14/04/2014 at 12:20

    I'd say Mummy as it's unlikely you have a backup ruck.

    So long as you're not missing out on a cash cow about to rise, you should be able to stash any of the other three on the bench without too much damage.

    But Rohan should probably be the next priority, as no one wants a burning red turd in their jocks.

JX20 · 14/04/2014 at 08:46

1. Caddy is nothing more than a tease. 4th season should be your break-out year, not a sub!! He teases when he comes on as sub and gets 9 possessions in 30 mins etc. Starts games and turns everything over. Can't win.
2. Every time I start Dunstan he fails, every time he's on my bench he stars. Can't win.
3. The only week my opposition has had Buddy was when he got his 130. Can't win.
4. I needed Currie, Buddy, Rohan and Dunstan to get me 105 (combined) to win my comp. Didn't win….

    KadeK is a jet · 14/04/2014 at 12:08

    unlucky! always next week though! I am sick of Caddy too!

    Beady Eye · 14/04/2014 at 12:18

    So what are you doing with Dunstan this week? Give the rest of us a heads up 😉

BC · 14/04/2014 at 08:58

Rohan his boat up the shyt creek, and caddy sHACK must be gone this week. Can’t take anymore burns! Are fasolo man, and Ambrose good trade downs?

    BC · 14/04/2014 at 09:22

    Like what kev says…. Suckling pig may not be a keeper, but for now he is doing ok, so surely you’ve got other spots to fix before his!

      Branks · 14/04/2014 at 09:41

      Of course. Looking to bring in Crouch this week.

    Kristofor · 14/04/2014 at 11:34

Thoughts on Mumford to Goldstein/Minson


    Branks · 14/04/2014 at 09:44

    You should probably hold onto Mumford as the Age is reporting that he will miss only two matches. Link is below:

      Tom · 14/04/2014 at 09:49

      Except I have Thurlow as my ruck rookie

    Kristofor · 14/04/2014 at 11:34

    Hold Mummy.. he's a short term out it seems.

Bluey · 14/04/2014 at 09:41

No market for my forward line lambs – Caddy, JKH, Impey, McDonut, Rohan etc… The vet is on his way over with his shotty to put them (and me) out of our misery. I'll blame El Nino again rather than my notoriously poor SC track record for their ribs showing.

mrfosak · 14/04/2014 at 10:26

Ellis or Aish to Crouch or too early?

    Kev · 14/04/2014 at 11:34

    Bit early. Ellis has a b.e of 10 this week

    tysb · 14/04/2014 at 11:59

    Got him too..
    I'm gonna hold.. Can't get much worse?

Got Tyson,Polec and Dunstan on field

and Crouch on the bench what should I do?

Will Crouch still make cash?

Traded Hanley out for Swallow

Traded Rohan out for Sam Llyod

What should I do? thoughts appreciated

Thanks Ty

    KadeK is a jet · 14/04/2014 at 12:01

    Crouch will make plenty of cash, Those two trades seem good.

      tysb · 14/04/2014 at 12:27

      Will his price go up (Make cash) While he is still on the bench?

        Josh · 14/04/2014 at 14:49


    Kristofor · 14/04/2014 at 15:24

    I'll probably make the same Hanley trade this week.
    I have caddy. Lloyd and Fasolo replacements I'm considering.

tysb · 14/04/2014 at 10:59

Just came up with this idea….

Trade Dom Tyson out for Sam Gray put him on the bench for next week

Swap Crouch in for Tyson

Trade Hanley out for Swallow

Then next week trade Rohan out for Sam Llyod

Got 300k still left and can upgrade anyone!!!

Thoughts would be appreciated Cheers Ty

    BlakeyP · 14/04/2014 at 15:20

    Hey Mate

    S Gray JS is questionable at best maybe Cripps for Carlton is a better option. But wait till next week cause Tyson will go up when both Gray and Cripps price will not change.

    I dont know what you time lay out for Byes is like but your second two trades will be trading in two round 8 players and you already have Crouch by the looks of it. Like the Llyod trade will be doin something similar myself if he plays well this week. But with the Hanley trade maybe pick up someone like Simpson or Hibberd who dont have the round out bye and then pick up Swallow after his Bye.

    Just my 2 cents

      BlakeyP · 14/04/2014 at 15:38

      *Team (not time)
      *8 (not out)

      sorry bout the typing

        tysb · 14/04/2014 at 16:05

        Or should I get suckling for hanley then start upgrading to premiums when byes start

          BlakeyP · 14/04/2014 at 17:04

          Suckling is a good price so if you need the money he would be ok but I think he may only av 80-90 for rest of the year and my not be a keeper. Hibberd is a proven prem and a keeper bar injury.

          So if ya need the extra $ yes but if ya want security I would go hibberd.

      tysb · 14/04/2014 at 16:02

      Thanks very appreciated just got Hibberd into my team now I do not think swallow can put up the consistency that Hibberd maintains

      Thanks Ty

Hazmatt · 14/04/2014 at 11:19

Woeful round of 1819 after being in top 1000 overall after RD 2.

Traded in Mummy and copped the donut with no bench cover.

Also had Hanley, Titchell, Tyson, Dunstan, Caddy, Murphy, Daisy, Langdon stink it up.

Don't really want to trade out Mummy straight away, depends on time out.

Will probably do the common trades of Caddy -> Fasolo, Daisy -> Crouch. Need to generate the cash that I wasted on Mummy.

Fitzy · 14/04/2014 at 11:19

who should I trade out for Fasolo? ive got Danger, zorko, titch, Wingard, Dusty, Caddy, JKH, taylor.
Probably gonna go with Caddy as hes spudding it up and it will gain me about 100k

    MightyDonsFC · 14/04/2014 at 11:31

    Double Sideways. Not keen on either to be honest. I'd have anotherlook at Lloyd maybe him for Caddy next week.

MightyDonsFC · 14/04/2014 at 11:31

Bring in Hampton, suckling, adcock or any other defender 440k<

Damo · 14/04/2014 at 11:41

Matty Wright or Mackay?

    tysb · 14/04/2014 at 11:56

    Wright because of there easy run

    Would you mind leaving some feedback on my previous comments

      Cam_H · 14/04/2014 at 16:30

      Wright by a whisker. Wright has dual position eligibility, and for what it's worth Wright's average over the last four years is about 10 points higher than Mackay's.

KadeK is a jet · 14/04/2014 at 11:42

What is the best trades everyone has made so far. Mine would have to be Daisy too Macrae last week!!!!

    tysb · 14/04/2014 at 11:53

      Macrae hasn't been crap, he's kicking Swans butt but a couple of hundred points already.

        Mebois · 15/04/2014 at 12:37

        i meant my trades.

Haze · 14/04/2014 at 11:53

Can i get some advice with which trades to make! Cheers

DEF: Swallow, Mitchell, Mcveigh, Suckling, Mcdonald, Webster ( Langdon, Gergiou)

MID: Ablett, Beams, Libba, Dal Santo, Daisy, Tyson, Polec, Dunstan ( Aish, Crouch)

RUCK: Mumford, Sandilands ( Derickx, Currie)

FWD: Dangerfield, Parker, Zorko, Buddy, Caddy, Kennedy-Harris ( Impey, McDonough)

I feel like my biggest problems are in the forward, as in Caddy as priority and then the rookies and Buddy. also not going well with daisy and webster… possibly caddy to fassolo and then Daisy to macrae?

    Rescued Pieman · 14/04/2014 at 12:46

    I think you need to cull Mumford. Could be out for a while. JKH on the ground is a problem. Maybe McDonough who isnt playing into a Fasolo or Lloyd

Bread n Butter · 14/04/2014 at 11:54

Hi fellas – appreciate your thoughts on this trade:
OUT Daisy, IN m crouch
OUT caddy, IN N Riewoldt

And would still have around $300k in the warchest.


    Philthy · 14/04/2014 at 13:31

    Makes Money, Makes Points, Makes Sense

    wes · 15/04/2014 at 07:34

    Agreed – if you can do those trades and still have spare $$, then no brainer. Only possible consideration is that Saints have Essendon, Lions, Hawks and Carlton in next 4 weeks. 2 of 4 are difficult games, and Nick could get hamstrung on them. His 1 poor score this year was against a top team (under 100), so get him by all means, but keep reality in mind when he plays bombers and hawks and don't react too much to those scores… hang onto him for Lions and Carlton games.

Ripper_Roo · 14/04/2014 at 11:56

Hey Community,
Fantastic work on the podcast again, troops!

Have a dilemma in choosing which trades make sense. These are my painpoints:
– D. Thomas
– S. Mumford
– Josh J Kennedy
– T. Mitchell
– J. Caddy

I have 150k in the bank (value lost by danger, martin and mcveigh have reduced my cash cow rewards :S )

Assuming Mummy is a 2+ weeks out, I'm looking at Sauce or HMac.

Which other trade should I make? I'm leaking value across my forward line (except for Higgins!).

Would love the community's help with which trade should I make.

T1: Thomas to Mccrae
T2: Thomas to Kelly
T3: JJK to Fasolo
T4: JJK to Petrie
T5: Caddy to Fasolo
T6: Mitchell to Fasolo
T7: Mitchell to Parker
T8: Other suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

    Ripper_Roo · 14/04/2014 at 12:01

    Small edition –

    If Mumford is out for only 2 weeks, which second trade would you all recommend. Thanks.

    Ripper_Roo · 14/04/2014 at 12:10

    Sorry again! Worth adding that I already have M. Crouch in my squad.

      George · 14/04/2014 at 14:29


    wes · 15/04/2014 at 07:37

    I'd ditch Tom Mitchell. is losing $$ each week with a different role.
    And I wouldn't go for a swans player as a swap just yet… swans got freo next week, and I don't expect any swans player to score well this round.
    Maybe make some cash and do a Mitchell to sam Lloyd swap this week??

Sam · 14/04/2014 at 12:05

what to do with webster have 20k in the bank and 29 trades?

    Flacid Jaff · 16/04/2014 at 10:56

    Rule 1: Don't trade a player whose average is greater than his break-even!
    He WILL score 40s and he WILL score 80s. Wait till he strings together a couple of 70-80s then trade him out at his peak!

Tom · 14/04/2014 at 12:33

Daisy –> Bartel
Langdon –> Crouch

Just a thought….is anyone giving any thought on ROUND 8 BYES…….the players we are looking to bring in (M Crouch, A Fasolo, S Lloyd) all have ROUND 8 BYES……Not sure whether we do consider this or not……thoughts community…..

26 trades left….not sure on the bringing in RD8 bye players though…….which will have a significant impact with respect to overall rankings…..

My thoughts….I may only be trading out J Caddy to A Fasolo (both have RD 8 bye) wouldn't change in terms of no. of players out during RD 8 bye with this trade…..this is the one trade which is absolutely confirmed this week…..enough of CADDY….lesson learnt is NEVER PICK the fringe / potential breakout / 2nd or 3rd year players from CATS team…..ONLY PICK THE GUNS of the cats team like J Selwwod, Stevie J, Enright, Mackie etc……they have got too much of depth….you cant predict what they do week in week out…..every week it will be bit different with the team structure based on so many reason…….AND YES I AM A CATS FAN…..

And regarding bringing in M Crouch…..seriously….the questions raises regarding the RD 8 bye….what do we do…..and yes next week to bring in S Lloyd (RD 8 Bye player as well)…..

May be S Gray to consider when he is bubble….only if I think his JS is good by considering Wingard and Monfries will come into Port Adelaide team……

IMO…..some has to raise this issue…..or is it an issue?…..

COMMUNITY……need all the opinions / comments / thoughts……


    MightyDonsFC · 14/04/2014 at 13:12

    All good ideas…..agree with most of them…….but why all the ellipses?

      chandanrajdb · 14/04/2014 at 14:10

      Thanks for your comment above mate…..what do you mean by ellipses????


        MightyDonsFC · 14/04/2014 at 17:36

        The dots between your words

          Dools · 14/04/2014 at 19:57

          I think….It's for us (The community to take the hint) and fill in the……unfinished……thoughts???Maybe LOL Nice rank….. Raj…..

          chandanrajdb · 14/04/2014 at 21:14

          Mate I am used to that when I am commenting or posting a question…..just like i did here…..

          I will try to minimize it in my future comments….


            Rocksta · 14/04/2014 at 21:20


            do whateva you like with your comments mate.

            after all, they are your comments……..!

Josh · 14/04/2014 at 13:02

cloke is going to end up cheaper than a packet of arnotts biscuits!

Ben · 14/04/2014 at 13:17

Two questions here
1) does anyone know how long Hanley is out for?

2) who should I trade tom Mitchell for?, have danger, zorko, dusty, fasolo and taylor already.

    Bray · 14/04/2014 at 14:18

    I think Luke Parker would be a good swap for Mitchell, or maybe Breust or maybe Gunston, or possibly matty wright, I would go Parker tho.

      Ben · 15/04/2014 at 13:15

      Thanks mate I've gone for breust, still may swap for Parker but breust little bit cheaper and higher average

    wes · 15/04/2014 at 07:38

    why not swap Mitchell for Higgins or merrett?
    reckon danger is going to come good next couple of rounds… just warming up now

Bob McBob · 14/04/2014 at 13:17

What is everyone's thoughts on Josh Jenkins?

Buffman · 14/04/2014 at 13:23


I have Caddy and T.Mitchell poisoning my FWD line (Rohan and JK in subs) at the moment but I also have B.Vince in the MID with a BE of around 100 this week.

Right now my priority is fixing the FWD line so I plan to downgrade Caddy to Fasolo.

My question is: Should I fix my FWD rookies (Rohan and JKH) or capitalise on Jobe Watsons price drop and upgrade B.Vince to him (leaving me pretty much $0 in the warchest)?

Be patient with B.Vince while my midfield is performing well?
Renovate the FWDs where I'm leaking points and cash.,,?

    Wattsieesq · 14/04/2014 at 18:03

    Hey Buffman,

    Jobe has a BE of 148 this week so is likely to drop further. Something to consider.


Beady Eye · 14/04/2014 at 13:29

Curious about the community's thoughts on Matty Jaensch.

If this just a flash in the pan to start the season, or is his current production (or close to) sustainable?

    Buffman · 14/04/2014 at 13:37

    I actually think he will drop off eventually. But then again he is proving to be a defender that can find space and the ball. Crows won by 90+ points which suggests the ball was in their forward half a lot of the time and Jaensch still managed to get 100+

    Derek · 14/04/2014 at 17:37

    it doesn't matter, we have missed him, he too expensive now. look elsewhere, there will be others

      Beady Eye · 14/04/2014 at 17:46

      Well it does matter, because if he's stepped up to legit premium/keeper status then he's still great value at $414K and a solid $80-100K cheaper than most other top defenders.

      Entirely different question to whether or not he's still a cash cow (in which case I'd agree with you that his time has passed).

Jimmy · 14/04/2014 at 13:31

My FWD line Danger Dusty Parker Titchell Merret Zorko (Higgins Taylor). Thinking of ditching Titchell don’t know what’s wrong with him that game at the weekend should have been right up his street, and bringing in Fas or Lloyd and using the cash to upgrade Webster to Mitchell or Tyson to Rockliffe

The Filth · 14/04/2014 at 13:34


Who to bring in for Hanley?

Current backline: Mitchell, Swallow, McVeigh, (Hanley), McDonald, Langford, Langdon, Georgio.

K Simpson – consistent – handy for the round 8 bye
Jaensch – scoring well but will it continue? – True premo? – will get 100k cash in the deal though
Hooker – been consistent but key position player.
Frawley / Mackie?
Suckling – is he a premo? Too many Hawks? Again will get cash in hand.
Dont have any spare cash to consider Bartel.
Rookie – eg KK – probably not at this stage – should be getting premos in.

Currently ranked 1233 – don't want to stuff up. Still have 27 trades.
Probably tossing up between Jaensch and Simpson..


    Jimmy · 14/04/2014 at 13:47

    Jaensch has had a role change so could sustain these scores. Simpson would be who I would choose though think he will be more consistent and average higher by the end of the year.

      The Filth · 14/04/2014 at 13:59

      Thanks Jimmy..

Neilsy · 14/04/2014 at 13:39

Got sucked into Webster like siposs last year from stkilda supporters on this site.Never again,Webster has to go down as the worst selection of the year.Spud

    Jimmy · 14/04/2014 at 13:42


    WombatsFC · 15/04/2014 at 17:09

    Yep Higgins presented the BurnMan Vest to him last week.

    Flacid Jaff · 16/04/2014 at 10:48

    I'm holding!
    Last week was a shocker for him, yes, but he should ralley and it looks like the ball will be in the StKilda back half a lot this season.
    I trade wih a rule of never flicking off a player whose average is greater than his break-even!

    [barring a month+ long injury or trading for form rookies on the bubble]

Danny · 14/04/2014 at 13:45

Hey Guys
Is Caddy to Higgins sideways or up grade.
Higgins has a BE of 2, and I think he will hold a mid 80 ave. We all know what Caddy is doing.

    matthewjsampson · 14/04/2014 at 14:14

    You're going to need to trade Higgins out again anyway though. A waste of a trade for mine. There is better cash generation options down the line to solve the Caddy problem

    mick · 14/04/2014 at 14:44

    its a bit sideways but iam thinking the same trade

    Jimmy · 14/04/2014 at 14:53

    Higgins looks the goods but Fasolo will probs make more money quickly. I had Higgins at F7 and now ditched Titchell and put him at F6. Depends if you are looking for cash or a keeper. At this point I can see Higgins occupying F6 all year.

    Azza · 15/04/2014 at 20:17

    Sideways! Go down to Fasolo instead

Philthy · 14/04/2014 at 13:52

Hi Community,

Hanley swing to MID leaves me playing Suckling, Mitchell, Enright, Langdon, McDonald and Laidler on field

Looking at:

Hanley to Crouch for Cash Gen and upgrade Daisy to JSelwood which banks me 100k

OR set my FWD line

Hanley to Crouch, JKH to Zorko which banks me 75k

Does anyone see Zorko benefitting more from the BRIS injuries? If i trade him in he becomes F6

    Derek · 14/04/2014 at 17:32

    Zorko plays for Brisbane, that is his main problem, shit team.

Caz · 14/04/2014 at 14:04

Hi guys I need some help. Last week I traded out leunberger for mumford, and now mumford looks like he will miss a couple of weeks. I also have Hanley who is injured and dale thomas in the midfield. Any thoughts on what trades I should do this week. Was thinking mumford to Jacobs and Hanley to jaench but both are round 8 bye players. Please help

    Jimmy · 14/04/2014 at 14:59

    Have you got S.Mitchell he is cheapish ATM with BE of 52. Had Jacobs since R1 and he’s looked far better than last year so far, I think he still offers value.

      Caz · 14/04/2014 at 15:27

      Already got Mitchell may just have to get Jacobs and jaench. Not much choice really.

    chandanrajdb · 14/04/2014 at 16:30

    I would hold on to Mummy and cop a donut for a week mate..if he is not named in the team next week then yes i will be thinking of offloading him to Jacobs….if you are only concerned with the league win….if not yup i will pull the pin on him to Jacobs…..

    Hanley has to go….this is easy, but make sure you go for a proven premo from him….do not get sucked in by another midpricer…yes Jaensch is in good form, but how long do you think the opposition teams will let hime run free….if he keeps up his work like the way he is currently, surely at some point there will be a FWD tagger on to him and who knows what happens then?…..

    Just my thoughts,


    Derek · 14/04/2014 at 17:31

    I feel your pain.

    Last week I traded Guthrie to Hanley

    I just have enough cash to go to McVeigh this week.

    wes · 15/04/2014 at 07:40

    if you are just going to change back to mummy afterwards, and you can bare it, keep him.

matthewjsampson · 14/04/2014 at 14:13

Gday community. My burns are sore and my faith is low. Underperformers across the board and I can feel my patience draining by the second. Would love some input from the community as to where you think I should head with my basket case of a team.

Here’s the stains in my underwear below:

Defenders: McVeigh, Suckling, Mitchell, Langdon, Enright, Georgiou, Webster
Midfielders: Ablett, Beams, Liberatore, Murphy, Cotchin, Dunstan, Tyson, Ellis, Polec, Crouch
Rucks: Sandilands, Jacobs, Derrickx Thurlow
Forwards: Zorko, Martin, Dangerfield, Mitchell, Caddy, Taylor, Impey, Kennedy-Harris

My first thoughts are to rage trade Caddy out to Fasolo, but I’m not sure. Should we wait and bring in Gray or Lloyd? Fasolo would only be a step ladder, so it could be a waste of a trade and there is probably more cash to be made from a rookie.

Im not sure what to do with the likes of Zorko, Mitchell, Libba Murphy or Cotchin. Im not sure these burns will ever heal.

And what do we do with ol’ Jim Webster?

    Neilsy · 14/04/2014 at 14:53

    Ask jock what to do with Webster

    Derek · 14/04/2014 at 17:29

    your team isn't that bad! let the cash cows fatten and use the Bye weeks to trade them into fallen premiums. I don't think you need to trade at all this week.

    Webster is cheap, but doing his job. Still will make you some cash. Saints have a round 10 bye so you might have to wait until round 9 to cull.

      Neilsy · 14/04/2014 at 19:28

      Webster is definately not doing his job.Even if I had all my players injured he is getting traded this week

oliverfisher · 14/04/2014 at 14:13

I've had the season from hell so far,
Ryder, Hickey, Hurn, Dahlaus,Currie, S Mitchell and Hanley being injured or late outs.
Shuey and Fyfe suspended and maybe Sandi this week
Plus spuds like Caddy, Rohan, Sheed, JKH, Cotchin,T Mitchell and Webster.
Despite this i should have a few back this week and it can hopefully only get better from here, now is when you need to dig deep and back your team to bounce back.

mick · 14/04/2014 at 14:42

hi all supercoach addicts backs mcveigh simpson janesch suckling langdon langford georgio clurey mids abblett sellwood watson beams libba polec dunstun ellis couch cunningham rucks sandi jacobs currie king fwds danger zorko martin buddy mitchell caddy impey jkharris what to do any advice please only 24 trades left currently in 2700 possy

    Cam_H · 14/04/2014 at 15:27


    Nice team. Just planting a seed for consideration;

    Josh Caddy (Gee) + Tom Mitchell (Syd) out
    Luke Breust (Haw) and Tom Williams (WBD) in + $56,000

    Breust 'could' end up in your final forward line, and Williams is on the bubble and has a break-even of -41.

    Jimmy · 14/04/2014 at 15:42

    Personally I think you need to ship out Caddy to Fasolo or Lloyd and then upgrade buddy to NRoo. Your FwD line is a bit of a concern in a money making sense, unfortunately the rookies you picked aren’t performing at this stage. And I’m not sure if Cunningham Georgiou and Clurey have much more to give either.

      Cam_H · 14/04/2014 at 16:06

      Yes – Fasolo would work really well, and not much more expensive than Williams.

        Cam_H · 14/04/2014 at 18:46

        (Apologies for replying to myself … where's the 'edit' button on this forum???)

        Bear in mind that Fasolo has the Round 8 bye.

          Mebois · 14/04/2014 at 18:49

          if you had an account you can edit your comment.

Tommykwr · 14/04/2014 at 14:46

Had a shocker week this week. Many injuries
Thoughts on trades this week, thinking
: Hanley for jaensch and
Caddy for breust/riewoldt/ forward premium
Also not sure what to do with Cotchin and libba
Thoughts anyone?

    dean · 14/04/2014 at 15:27

    I did Caddy to Reiwoldt as soon as i heard caddy was out, paid off for me so far, Id hold on cotch and libba.

      JX20 · 14/04/2014 at 18:59

      Libba is boom (150) or bust around 80ish. Have to take the good with the bad with him.
      Cotch should get 5 frees this week.
      Hold on both.

Jimmy · 14/04/2014 at 15:03

N.Roo lock and leave. Don’t know about Libba as I’ve never paid much attention to him. Wouldn’t think Cotchin would get assaulted every week and I’m keeping until his bye.

Luke · 14/04/2014 at 15:10

Anyone heard anything about Ambrose? Don’t want to burn a trade to get him out if he will be getting game time soon

    joshpapworth · 15/04/2014 at 13:12

    i think he will be back this week or next

    i would trade maybe for lloyd

    Cameron · 15/04/2014 at 16:55

    Hopefully he'll be back this week, then you can go BANG BANG trade to Lloyd when he hits the bubble and Ambrose rises

Dean · 14/04/2014 at 15:33

G'day community. I'm in a bit of a delemor as to who I trade out, to bring in CROUCH.
I have these players who have a Break Even of: AISH +14, McDONALD -1, POLEC -1, ELLIS -2 and DUNSTAN -38 So out of these cash cows I would automatically chose AISH as he has a positive Break Even.

However im actually thinking of trading out COTCHIN who is bleeding cash and more importantly he seems to be carrying some kind of injury and then bringing in CROUCH for COTCHIN.
If I do this it will give me $403,000 in the bank after I also trade out HANLEY for BARTEL.

Jock or the community your thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Jimmy · 14/04/2014 at 15:56

    Keep Cotchin.

    chandanrajdb · 14/04/2014 at 16:19

    NEVER trade a premium player from your team…..will be a waste of trade IMO…….

    Its not like you have to get Crouch……if you wait for one more week and look how P Cripps from Carlton scores in his 2nd match this week and you can go for AISH to Cripps…..this means you can make some more money from Aish and also bringing a Non round 8 bye player……this is what I am thinking of doing next week…..instead of jumping on Crouch without giving any thoughts to Round 8 Bye……this is only required if you are going for Overall ranks……if not then get on the Crouch train….by trading out Aish…..

    Just my thoughts….


      Dean · 14/04/2014 at 17:34

      Thanks Raj. I wish I had a chance at overall but unfortunately there is no chance for me to go Overall as im ranked 38,000 odd. I'll look to trade out AISH at this point.

      I totally understand trading out a Premium is a waist of trade if its a sideways trade. My concern is Cotchin doesn't look right at all, I wouldn't consider it a waist of a trade when downgrading a premium to a rookie. Although he has a break even of 108 so I guess he is worth keeping for at least another week.

      Thanks again mate

        chandanrajdb · 14/04/2014 at 21:47


        Cotchin will come good this week….he was tagged hardly and ruthlessly by the Macaffer…. think we need to start considering any star in our supercoach team when playing against Collingwood from now….reason the "THE MACCA FACTOR" has risen to level on par with "CROWLEY" factor….

        Cotchin IMO is not injured…it was "MACCA FACTOR" on the weekend…….

        as you have said above wait for a week…he will be good this week against Lions…..


        WombatsFC · 15/04/2014 at 11:43

        Hi Dean
        I totally agree with Raj, Cotchin will post 125+ this week and, he's not injured it was the disgustingly ugly tactics of Macaffer. Macaffer isn't a Crowley, Macs tagging is based on the theory that umps miss most holding and smothering a player OFF the ball. I also don't think many other teams will Mac get away with all of his off the ball cheating and the umps are now very aware that the quiet and polite Macaffer is actually the football equivalent of a Houso in a dark alley with an iron bar.
        Raj is top of the table in the Throttledome so I'd take notice of what he says.

    Derek · 14/04/2014 at 17:20

    keep premiums.

    Lisa · 14/04/2014 at 17:54

    Hi Dean,
    I was thinking of doing the exact same thing. It will leave me with $450k in the bank. Next week I will trade impey to Lloyd, which will net me another $55,300 and leave me with $505k to upgrade with. It means I will have to have 4 of either polec, dunstan, x ellis, tyson, aish or crouch on the ground, but only for one week. Then i read everyone's comments, so I too guess i better hold cotch.

      Dean · 14/04/2014 at 18:10

      Lisa considering Cotchin Break Even is only 108 and there playing Brisbane next week it makes sense keeping him for at least 1 more week, if he does nothing in round 5 then he has to go because he isn't right, I personally think it's a groin issue.

      If your going to bring in CROUCH then trade out AISH as he will generate you less cash, although in saying that, if your season is anything like mine then AISH will probably score 100 plus. lol

    lostlarrikin · 14/04/2014 at 19:57

    SC Gold BEs are a bit off.
    Actual – Aish +24, McD +11, Polec +11, Ellis +10, Dunstan -25

    Agree that not a given that Crouch is needed, that said, Aish may not make too much more with a 24 BE

canman1306 · 14/04/2014 at 15:39

Giants reporting Mummy to miss 1 week is it worth keeping hi and copping a donut for just 1 week?
Aish -> Crouch is locked in for me
Don't know whether to Trade Mummy or Hanley with the other trade

    Bob McBob · 14/04/2014 at 15:46

    Technically, it will still be 2 weeks of donuts due to the bye

      Bob McBob · 14/04/2014 at 16:56

      Actually it's a 9 day break, not the bye

    chandanrajdb · 14/04/2014 at 16:25

    I would HOLD on to MUMMY mate…..just got to ride with it…..if he is not named in the team next week, I will then be thinking of pull the pin on him……

    Hanley is certain that he will miss min 3 weeks and max of 6 weeks……he has to go…..IMO…


    canman1306 · 14/04/2014 at 18:49

    I reckon my NO. Priority is trading Aish/Ellis -> Crouch
    But whether I trade Hanley or Mummy as my other Trade will be a hard Choice

Jag · 14/04/2014 at 15:43

Heard Hanley might be missing a longer period of time, was thinking a Hanley to jaensch trade, would anyone advise? and cotchin, he’s killing me, should I hold on this or trade?

    canman1306 · 14/04/2014 at 15:48

    Keep your Premos they will pull through

    chandanrajdb · 14/04/2014 at 16:22

    Hanley to a proven premo, like S Mitchell, J Bartel, J Macveigh, K Simpson etc…..

    HOLD COTCHIN…..will be a waste of trade IMO….he will come good for sure….he is a GUN……

    Just my Thoughts…..


    Derek · 14/04/2014 at 17:18

    Hanley to McVeigh, Mitchell or Bartel. You shouldn't need to much cash for any of them. jaensch too expensive now.

    Keep Cotchin, he is a gun. Got a very heavy tag last game (was disgusting what Caffa was allowed to do) he will pay you back if you keep him

    joshpapworth · 15/04/2014 at 13:10

    hold cotchin

tysb · 14/04/2014 at 15:55

Have got Dunstan,Polec and Tyson who should I put on bench for crouch or should I just leave it

    Bray · 14/04/2014 at 16:10

    Leave it mate

    joshpapworth · 15/04/2014 at 13:09

    yeah i would leave it

    tyson should get close to 100
    dunstan should definatley get more than 55
    polec is averaging around 95
    and you dont know that crouch will continue getting 80's and above

Bray · 14/04/2014 at 16:10

Hoping that Hanley will only be out for a week or two, so I was thinking holding him and moving him to the bench for Langdon, so I can get rid of Dale Thomas, I’m thinking trading Polec down to gray, move him to the bench for crouch,and using the extra 268 in the bank to upgrade Dale Thomas, what do you guys think.? and who should I get in for Thomas.?

    Mozz · 14/04/2014 at 16:34

    Don't get Gray yet, he's only had one game and his job security isn't the best. Polec still has a negative break even so his price will still go up. My thoughts are to leave Polec for another 1-2 weeks, that way you'll probably trade him out at about 350-70k instead of 300k. Also Gray might end up being a dud, don't run after last weeks scores.
    Leave Thomas for another week
    Leave Polec
    Don't get Gray just yet

    Tommykwr · 14/04/2014 at 16:38

    Agree with Mozz on holding polec. Should have good job security and earn more cash

    Dean · 14/04/2014 at 17:14

    Agree with Mozz Regarding DO NOT TRADE out POLEC that it just crazy as his Break Even is -1 so he projected to go up $37,000 after round 5 and by round 8 he is projected to be worth $400,000 so that's when you should be looking to trade out POLEC especially this year as there are not many cash cows.
    Also worth noting out of most of the cash cows we do have in the midfield such as POLEC, ELLIS, DUNSTAN, LANGDON, AISH McDONALD I would say that out of ALL those players I just mentioned POLEC is the only player in that bunch that could end up being a potential keeper, who may make it to PREMIUM status.
    Unless you are fortunate enough and one of the selected few who paid up big to have a player like MACRAE in your side who is looking like a GUN and a definite premium at the moment.

    However I can totally understand trading out Daisy Thomas who has a average of 74 and a Break Even of +61 to bring in someone like CROUCH and generate $247,000 cash by doing so, not to mention the money CROUCH will generate in 4 to 6 weeks by doing this trade. To be honest I will be advising a good friend of mine to be making this trade.

    Good Luck with your decision mate.

tysb · 14/04/2014 at 16:16

I traded hanley out for the pig suckling instead of swallow because he should make me some cash

What is your thoughts community!?

    Mozz · 14/04/2014 at 16:31

    That's a great idea. Suckling should produce some good solid scores and still at a really cheap price. GET SUCKLING

    KadeK is a jet · 14/04/2014 at 18:34

    Yeah but Swallow should stay their the whole year. whereas suckling will probably go soon! Tough call.

    Josh · 15/04/2014 at 14:31

    I'm trading Hanley out for Swallow: it's an injury trade – keeper for a keeper.

    Rescued Pieman · 15/04/2014 at 16:55

    Gday tysb. Hanley is only out for 2. Grade 1 hammy, good news, bench for mine.

Cal · 14/04/2014 at 16:40

should I hold or trade daisy….with judd coming back in the carlton boys may lift

    Tomawhawk · 15/04/2014 at 10:00

    I reckon get rid of the bloke. He's been given enough time to prove otherwise.

spadgewang · 14/04/2014 at 16:51

Hey there community, a bit relieved to see quite a few fellow coach's getting burned with injuries, late changes and worst of all non reverse trades for injured( and named ) late withdrawals. So what do i do now, do have some cash thinking daisy for J Selwood and have honeychurch to trade for either Lloyd, gray or take big rooy and bring in crouch or even Bartell. Thoiughts ???

Cyril · 14/04/2014 at 16:54

Is it too early to get getting rid of guys like dunstan, polec, aish, ellis, tyson to make coin on your crouch? These guys still have cash generating.

    Derek · 14/04/2014 at 17:10

    let them fatten some more. the round 8 byes are not far away

    Beady Eye · 14/04/2014 at 17:13

    Tyson is the only one I'd possibly look at… BE of 38 this week and 62 the week after, which (unless he starts smashing out tons again) is starting to get close to cull numbers.

    pat · 14/04/2014 at 20:07

    mate let them make all your $$$ then trade them to cheap premiums, Griffen, Swan ext..

@Armige · 14/04/2014 at 17:35

Hanley down to Suckling, putting Langdon into the defence and trading out Georgiou for Crouch.

    Beady Eye · 14/04/2014 at 19:28


tysb · 14/04/2014 at 18:20

Is it too late to get on board with macrae?!

Thinking of getting him next week!

    medadsson · 15/04/2014 at 18:47

    The only reason you would pick him up now is that you believe him to be a keeper (too late for making money and if you had him would you sell him off, no way I suspect). With that in mind he offers exceptional value for money and has not looked like skipping a beat all year including a very strong pre season. May attract more attention but I believe opposition teams would more likely target Griffiths, Liberatore and perhaps Boyd before hard tagging Macrae. If you have the cash why not upgrade I say. I am!!! Can't believe I teetered on him or Daisy at seasons start, Grrrrgh.

matty d · 14/04/2014 at 18:35

is it time to get rid of mitchel?

    josh · 14/04/2014 at 22:44

    yes, possibly to danger if you dont have him already or go to sam lloyd and pocket some cash $$

    WombatsFC · 15/04/2014 at 11:46

    Definitely take him out the back and give him a lead earplug.

WombatsFC · 14/04/2014 at 18:35

Hi Community,
I'm dumping Tom Mitchell this week and I would appreciate your opinions on the following options
a). Macrae and put either Polec, Tyson or Dunstan on bench
b). Suckling and put Langdon on midfield bench
c). Hooker and put Langdon on midfield bench
d). Merrett and put either Higgins, Fasolo or Sam Lloyd on the bench
e). MCrouch and leave all of Polec, Tyson and Dunstan on field

    throttlefinger · 14/04/2014 at 19:12

    E and B are the most attractive of that bunch. If forced to pick one, E.

      WombatsFC · 15/04/2014 at 11:26

      Thanks Throttle. The Great Pretender (Mad Mick) reckons he's gunna giive up on his 10-years old single game plan and allow the players to "Just play footy". Against the Doggies. This means he wont run three taggers through the middle and could also mean that Boyd, Griff and Macrae all go 150+ this weekend.
      I suppose I'll have to wait until 10 minutes before Thursday bounce and then go on instinct.
      In a much more important story either Angus or Malcom is very sick and the 40th Anniversary Tour may not go ahead, in fact he's so ill that they may never record again.

        throttlefinger · 15/04/2014 at 20:19

        Whaaaa?!?!? No way. I'll have to spend my work day digging up info on that. Hope it's a minor set back. Given records and touring, hope he'll be able to the latter. Former has enough to keep me satiated until I'm swimming with the worms.

        Blues are a mess yet I think that's a good response by Mick. They need a big switch up, especially attitudinally. See what happens.

        throttlefinger · 16/04/2014 at 04:22

        To the great man on hopes of a speedy recover…some singled out brilliance.

          WombatsFC · 16/04/2014 at 13:03

          Thanks mate. My long eloquent response was deleted by the administrator.

            throttlefinger · 16/04/2014 at 19:30

            Man, that happens to you a lot.

    Mick · 14/04/2014 at 20:08

    A or b…they both are looking like keepers

      WombatsFC · 15/04/2014 at 11:20

      Thanks Mick. My main concern is having two 100pts players on the mid bench and then also having a 50-80pt player in fwd and backline; it seems like a waste.

    lostlarrikin · 14/04/2014 at 22:53

    Actually looking at Hooker myself.
    A big beneficiary of the Dons possession game.

      WombatsFC · 15/04/2014 at 11:17

      Thanks lost one. I also like the look of him too but he will reduce my bank to about $900.00 whereas Suckling will leave me with 79k and Merret would leave me 93K.
      I've gone Impey to Fasolo this week already and, I'm planning to get Sam Gray and/or Cripps next week and cash in another two maxed out rooks.
      I might go with Suckling because the downside (if he's injured early) isn't as bad as Hooker and hooker wont increase by much more than 10k if he tons up.

    Dogs · 15/04/2014 at 00:29

    Wish I could drop titch this week, but caddy and Rohan are more urgent. I'm hoping that titches worst is now behind him and I can spend a couple weeks on rookies plumping up . In saying that I've just traded Lloyd in for Rohan and I'm contemplating starting Lloyd and putting titch on the pine .

    In your case tho I like the suckling option, he looks like he is really starting to get in the swing of things, and at this stage he is looking like becoming my end game F6 .

      WombatsFC · 15/04/2014 at 11:30

      Thanks Dogs yeah Sucker could be a good F6 and that's my dilemma cos Hooker is also a good F6 and is a bit more consistent so far. The Suck has gone sub 80 twice (50% of games so far) and Langdon was matching him on ave until last weeks 122.

        Wattsieesq · 15/04/2014 at 20:19

        As a Hawks supported and someone who has Suckiling, those 80 games were at the start of the year. He has improved game on game. I don't think he'll keep on pumping out tons weekly as his role will change with Lake and Stratton coming back but he's a keeper.

    chandanrajdb · 15/04/2014 at 12:31

    Hi Wombats,

    Have you been considering Pavlich….seems like he is coming to form and is still cheap @439k (approx) if Tom Mitchell is in your FWD….i dont like any of the options above mate….TBH…reasons,

    I know Pavlich is a KPP but he is proven SC scorer…..and dont see any reasons y he wouldn't average 90-100 points this season……Freo good team and will win many matches another thing to consider in SC……

    IMO…Just go for a keeper who will be on Field till end of the season…..instead of downgrading to a rookie and then upgrading him to someone else or even going for a midpricer and then upgrading him if he drops off……

    Just my thoughts…..


      WombatsFC · 15/04/2014 at 13:59

      Thanks Raj, I was looking at Pav but was hoping to get better value for money at this time of year I already made the ultimate Fwd trade mistake by going Wright to Zorko before the increase when I should have gone Titch or Caddy to Zork.
      I'm definitely dumping Titch this week swans will probably drop him anyway, but I'm still undecided on who to bring in for him.

    WombatsFC · 15/04/2014 at 22:32

    I ended up gettin Rocky.

Derek · 14/04/2014 at 18:38

with Leuenberger going down, who else do Brisbane have in their rucking stocks? Will West be the #1 ruckman. is he an option to replace?

    Ocker · 14/04/2014 at 18:52

    Archie Smith was a rare shining light for the Lions in the NEAFL on the weekend.
    May get a game depends on whether they need another ruck or just use West.

Donut King · 14/04/2014 at 19:07

Community I have figured out the answer to the Jimmy Webster problem.
I will reveal this highly sought after piece of fantasy gold after someone replies.

    Billy · 14/04/2014 at 19:22

    ok what is it?

    Donut King · 14/04/2014 at 19:30

    Two Words
    Sam Docherty
    Priced at $286K it may not be a downgrade but with the limited options down back it is acceptable.
    Outstanding VFL form over the last to few weeks, will almost certainly be included in the squad to take on the Doggies this weekend. With Carlton's crap form and midfield ability he will get a lot of game time and will live up to the hype that was thrust upon him when he was drafted.
    Either hold Webster for this week and watch Docherty rake in the scores from now on.

      Beady Eye · 14/04/2014 at 19:37

      Well there'll be plenty of ball in Carlton's backline, so good call DK.

      Any vest danger you reckon?

        Donut King · 14/04/2014 at 20:07

        Don't think so BE, Mick seems to rather a midfielder to take the green vest. Tom bell, Nick Graham are both likely vests for this week. I guess we'll wait and see.

      Jimmy · 14/04/2014 at 21:20

      Interesting. I had Docherty locked in all preseason, really like him as a player and should be a high scorer.

Beady Eye · 14/04/2014 at 19:35

Early days, but assuming they're all named, who gets to ride the midfield bench next to Lewie Taylor?

Crouching Jnr

Normally I'd say young Crouching, but the kid is ball magnet and plays a bunch of other kids from GWS this week.

hey guys, great podcast once again jock !!!
everyone is saying get matt crouch in and i will do but who for out of these blokes: Daisy, Tyson, Dunstan?? also have impey but he is doing nothing, who do i trade him to please??

    Dee · 14/04/2014 at 20:07

    Aish if you have him….

Tomscoach · 14/04/2014 at 20:21

Thoughts of buddy 454k down to Fasolo 213k and then
Aish 256k up to Oliver Wines 474k

    @Armige · 14/04/2014 at 21:17

    As long as you think Wines will be a keeper until years end?
    Will he be in the top 10 Mids at years end, I don't think so.

      Kevan · 15/04/2014 at 09:48

      I went Buddy to Fasolo and then Webster to Swallow. Happy with that one.

        Hugh · 15/04/2014 at 14:55

        trading out buddy after he just scored 130, and in the wet when he was given none of the ball you are gonna trade out a premo? Dont know about that Kev

Gab · 14/04/2014 at 21:09

guys what are we doing with jimmy webster?? need help!!!

Swans2012 · 14/04/2014 at 21:24

Ranked 765, only used 2 trades do far. Have Hanley to deal with and I am ANTI trading out/sidewaysing premos, so presuming its a 1-2weeker I’m holding Hanley. Going to go down Tyson to crouch and up georgio to jaensch. Jaensch essentially covers Hanley and then when he’s back I’m only playing one rook down back. I know it’s a little early on Tyson but I’d rather do one up one down than one sideways. And jaensch has a dream run over the next three to prove himself a premo which I think he will. Not to mention there are no other defenders @ 400kish that even might be keepers IMO.

    Swans2012 · 14/04/2014 at 21:30

    Meant to say appreciate everyone’s thoughts?!?

      MightyDonsFC · 14/04/2014 at 21:43

      I'd look at Hampton, same story as jaensch with the position change

        Swans2012 · 14/04/2014 at 21:57

        Interesting…. Thanks for the heads up, I just don’t trust GWS players yet though….

          MightyDonsFC · 14/04/2014 at 22:17

          He's their rebounding defender and is never likely to cop a tag thanks to treloar, ward, coniglio etc

          MightyDonsFC · 14/04/2014 at 22:17

          Also offers a POD

    Cyril · 14/04/2014 at 21:40

    I’m thinking of Tyson to crouch as well. This will allow me to get rid of stinking caddy. Should I turn him into reiwoldt?

Jag · 14/04/2014 at 21:26

how long is hanley projected to be out for?

    Rocksta · 14/04/2014 at 21:35

    I heard 2 weeks on AFL 360

      Josh · 15/04/2014 at 14:36

      Brisbane today: "Pearce Hanley has a grade-one hamstring tear and will also be out of action for a fortnight."
      I think it's probably going to be more like 3 weeks. Sayonara Hanley.

Gary · 14/04/2014 at 21:32

Hi community,
I will be trading out Hanley this week, should i also trade out Bernie Vince to a premo such as pendles or selwood/stevie j?

    Rocksta · 14/04/2014 at 21:37


Rocksta · 14/04/2014 at 21:34

I have Nic Nat and Titch.

Do they both get the boot this week?

Don't like sideways trades so it will be Nic Nat to Hickey and Titch to Fas.


    MightyDonsFC · 14/04/2014 at 21:43

    Assuming you have Sandi, I'd bring in sauce

Collingwood Fan · 14/04/2014 at 22:09

Should I trade Gary Abblet or Swan

    pat · 15/04/2014 at 09:51

    ablett, not performing

      Donut King · 15/04/2014 at 10:10


        Wattsieesq · 15/04/2014 at 12:35

        Get rid of GAJ. What a stain.

        Pat · 15/04/2014 at 14:40


          Crowmagnon · 15/04/2014 at 16:11

          So glad I dumped him after round 1.

Pete · 14/04/2014 at 22:11

Balls of Steel worked

Cotchin out for Matty Crouch

Harvested Tyson and upgraded to Macrae, Mumford to Jacobs for a couple of weeks

    wes · 15/04/2014 at 07:55

    Cotchin should have a field day against Lions though this week… thoughts?
    like the other trades though…

      Pete · 15/04/2014 at 21:15

      Hey Wes,

      Cotchin may have a field day, but also has been flat and loves putting in 80 a week, the rookies do the same, so doing a rolling upgrade strategy.

      Play fantasy so trades are different, but cotchin to crouch worked and made money, first upgrade complete, next week will go rookie to Sam Mitchell to finish backline off.

      Although these bloody rucks are causing a massive headache.

      Did Sandy get weeks for his cheap high hit?

MightyDonsFC · 14/04/2014 at 22:16

Who's on your watchlist to bring in for your cash cows? Mine include


    Swans2014 · 14/04/2014 at 22:43

    I like the Adcock thought. I have had him most years except for this year and always give you a solid 80 or 90. Terrible start to the year for him but seems to be finding some form now. Not for me at this stage yet as there are still your Jaensch Hampton types who are averaging much more than him. How are you planing to bring him in?

      MightyDonsFC · 15/04/2014 at 09:37

      Got a bit of $ leftover, so probably a straight swap from Langdon to adcock given that Langdon gets up around 300k and adcock stays low 400k. Whoever has more form going into the byes out of swan and griffen will be put in my team. Petrie incredibly consistent average in past seasons, maybe looking at Fasolo out for him.

    Dogs · 14/04/2014 at 22:52

    Selwood,watson, fyfe would finish off my mids, bartel, Hanley to cap off back line, N. Roo , and still up in the air over other forwards, maybe bruest if he keeps his form.

    wes · 15/04/2014 at 07:54

    I got Macrae, Merrett, Brad Hill as all hig mid-pricers, but who are scoring well abv avg. these blokes are all scoring over 85 DT pts a game, and are stil underpriced in that forum for their output. Heck – Macrae is priced at around 87 pts / game, but has an avg of 117 after first 4… why the hell can I not fit him in my own team????
    Nahas will increase in value too.
    Isaac Smith has proved very consistent too… And Swan should come up in $$ too

    Beady Eye · 15/04/2014 at 09:37

    Joelwood first and foremost, before his price cracks $700K.

    After that Griffen, Watson, Jack, Pavlich, Rioli, and Dog Dog.

    Donut King · 15/04/2014 at 10:17

    Definitely cannot forget Gary Rohan and Jay Kennedy-Harris. Both proven premiums and have more scoring potential than Josh Bootsma and Levi Casboult combined.

Jimmy · 14/04/2014 at 22:23

Thoughts on Broadbent,if you take out his first game where he was sub he is avg 95

    MightyDonsFC · 15/04/2014 at 09:38

    Like the look of him a lot, never likely to get a tag, will be between him and adcock for my d6

gabb · 14/04/2014 at 22:42

lads when is ambrose back please?

    WombatsFC · 15/04/2014 at 11:49

    Doesn't really matter you're bleeding points by having him and if you don't have him he shouldn't be on your radar unless he's named on the field and you need a new F10. One good game against Carlton and 5-minutes of luck in his first game isn't enough to warrant an on field position in SC.

      gabb · 15/04/2014 at 14:58

      so ambrose is back soon…..

Donavan · 14/04/2014 at 23:14

Had a SC challenges present themselvesthis week, and I would appreciate some feedback fom the community.

Going for league wins, and have tough opposition this week, currently sitting 1-1, after scoring 2385 & 1747 with the same line-up.

Thinking of doing 2 trades in the forward-line
Jeremy Cameron & Josh Caddy for Dustin Martin & Sam Lloyd

Other forward line members include Dangerfield, Buddy, Roughead, Rohan, Taylor & Ambrose.

I will sit Rohan on the bench with either Taylor or Ambrose.

I also have Mumford and Hanley, but have some coverage (Derickx & Webster/Georgiou).

Should I be trading Mumford or Hanley this week instead, or both, although they will not leak cash, but will leak points.

    Derek · 15/04/2014 at 09:59

    Hanley has to go. The question is do you wait another week and get some of the premium defenders a bit cheaper.

    Birchell at $469k is cheap

Lachie · 14/04/2014 at 23:56

Tyson to crouch
murphy to ablett

    Bob McBob · 15/04/2014 at 00:15

    Looks a good trade

    WombatsFC · 15/04/2014 at 11:35


    Azza · 15/04/2014 at 20:33

    Yes – definitely need to get Abz in!

DanJ · 15/04/2014 at 00:41

So for those idiots (namely myself) who decided to ignore all advice and go without Ablett, when should we look to bring him in? I could trade out Hanley for a premo defender, and get the early cull on Matt Thomas or Dyson to bring in Gary (I kept 250K in the bank).

My instincts are telling me to be a stubborn old bastard and hold. Fatten up these calves so I can drain as much cash as possible, as was my initial plan. Surely Gary has got to loose value soon…. right?

    wes · 15/04/2014 at 07:46

    What are your other options besides GAJ? Stevie J – is he more expensive on SC format that DT?
    I got Ablett at the start, so hard to comment. Last week I took captaincy off GAJ and went for Cornes (cos he was up against Lions and GAJ was on hawks). I figured hawks would manage him, and I would lose out if I kept GAJ as captain… NUP… GAJ went on to score as he normally does.
    Cornes was a bit flukey on my part. But who else is there you can rely on that much?
    Pendles maybe?
    Cannot see GAJ losing too much value from here on – so are you saving $$ now and missing out on points?

    Beady Eye · 15/04/2014 at 09:34

    I think the only safe way to go when you don't have Ablett is to load up on the other super-premiums (Pendles, Selwood, maybe Watson, maybe Riewoldt this year) to compensate and give yourself multiple reliable captaincy options.

    I'm in the safe boat as a non-Ablett owner, so I've got 3/4 of the above and am bringing the last one in next week.

    Derek · 15/04/2014 at 09:52

    Ablett plays Melbourne and GWS next two weeks! get him in, he won't get any cheaper

    DanJ · 18/04/2014 at 04:34

    Thanks for your input guys. I decided to upgrade Marc Murphy to Ablett, as you pointed out wes, What's the point in saving cash now and missing out on points!

Adam · 15/04/2014 at 03:11

I'm going Goddard down to crouch and carthy up to fasolo. Thoughts?

vinnymac · 15/04/2014 at 09:25

Hanley to Suckling, Thomas to Wines.
I'm sticking with Webster and Dahlhaus for one more week.

Brett · 15/04/2014 at 09:40

Backs: Swallow, Simpson, McVeigh, Mitchell, McDonald, Langdon (Kolodjashnij, Langford)

Mid: Ablett, Selwood , Beams, Liberatore, Cotchin, Tyson, Polec, Dunstan (Ellis, Crouch)

Ruck: Sandi, Hickey (Derickx, Currie)

Forward: Breust, Dangerfield, Martin, Mitchell, Higgins, L Taylor (Impey, JKH)

Does anyone recommended an upgrade downgrade I could do? Was considering Tyson down to maybe a Cripps (not sure on JS), then using the 170,000 for upgrading someone? Or I could make Ellis – Cripps, but that ruins my money making ability, and then making Tyson a premium forward (Robbie Gray) by subbing Taylor in to the midfield? I feel that would finish off my forward line, cause I think Higgins might be a keeper. Also what about Tom Mitchell?

    Derek · 15/04/2014 at 09:49

    that is a good team. I would wait a couple of weeks before the cull

MightyDonsFC · 15/04/2014 at 09:41

Should I keep webster or laidler?

    Brett · 15/04/2014 at 09:44

    Laidler, Webster is a spud and laidler making more money. But Webster probably has better Job Security

    Derek · 15/04/2014 at 09:47

    Webster is in a bad team, but his job security is much better. i'd keep Webster

    gary · 15/04/2014 at 09:56

    laidler will get dropped in a few weeks mark my words

      MightyDonsFC · 15/04/2014 at 12:55

      Leaning towards keeping jimmy, but only because laidler will get dropped 🙁

Pat · 15/04/2014 at 09:59

do we need to get M. Crouch in really badly? is it worth trading crouch in for Polec, Port have wce and geelong to come – tough !!!
also trade or hold hanley?

    Fourbells · 15/04/2014 at 13:01

    Couch is our next money maker. Hold Polec and if you have Ellis or Tyson, trade them instead
    I am holding Hanley as he will be in my final six defenders and don't want to waste a trade later on

      Pat · 15/04/2014 at 14:28

      cheers 4bells

Cyril · 15/04/2014 at 10:02

I would be getting rid of Tyson before polec

Antonio · 15/04/2014 at 10:02

Ok community – I’m sold on my first trade

Hanley –> Suckling

Solves the problem and generates some good $$$

Second trade is a real debate. Would like both Fasolo and Crouch in, but as always can only take one.

Crouch would have to come in via a rookie as already booted Daisy a couple of weeks ago. Aish and Ellis my prime candidates. Have Dunstan, Polec and Tyson on field.

Option 1: Aish/Ellis –> Crouch (miss Fasolo and pick up Lloyd next week for Caddy)
Option 2: Caddy –> Fasolo (miss out on Crouch)

Sitting on $423k after the Hanley –> Suckling pig trade, so will have plenty cash to throw around when it comes to upgrade time.


    Michael · 15/04/2014 at 10:14

    Ellis has. a -2 breakeven, Tyson’s is 50. Keep that in mind.

    Derek · 15/04/2014 at 10:29

    long term I would be looking at Birchell instead of Suckling. Birchell is only $469k in the cheap premium catergory. Suckling won't be a premium (this year) and you will probably be looking at using another trade later in year to upgrade him

tysb · 15/04/2014 at 10:09

Defence: Jaensch , Hibberd, McVeigh, Mitchell , McDonald , Enright, C – Bench Georgiou, A + Fuller, M

Midfielders: Ablett , Pendlebury , Beams, D , Watson , Shiels , Tyson , Dunstan , Polec – Bench Crouch, M + Robertson, N

Rucks: Sandilands , Jacobs – Bench Currie + Thurlow

Forwards: Merret, Martin , Zorko , Higgins , Danger , Sam Llyod – Bench JHK + Honeychurch

Trades I made this week:

Hanley out for Hibberd

Rohan out for Sam Llyod

Whats your thoughts on my team community?

Scored 2174 RDT in top 6% last week

Cheers Ty

JX20 · 15/04/2014 at 10:11

Value the thoughts of this great community.

Option 1. Caddy to Fasolo allows Bugg to Scott D Thompson
Option 2. Caddy to Lloyd allows Webster to Scott D Thompson

Remaining backs Swallow, Smitch, LMac, Thumper, Langdon, Mike Georgiou. I need some quality & worried about Enright being nursed along by the cats .

    Spiro · 15/04/2014 at 10:24

    i like Caddy to Fasolo but i would go Webster or Bugg to Jaensch as he has a BE of 29 and has scored over 100 in all his games

tysb · 15/04/2014 at 10:14

Defence: Jaensch , Suckling , McVeigh, Mitchell , McDonald , Enright, C – Bench Georgiou, A + Fuller, M

Midfielders: Ablett , Pendlebury , Beams, D , Watson , Shiels , Tyson , Dunstan , Polec – Bench Crouch, M + Robertson, N

Rucks: Sandilands , Jacobs – Bench Currie + Thurlow

Trades I made this week:

Hanley out for Suckling

    Derek · 15/04/2014 at 10:35

    I wouldn't go Suckling. he is not a premium and you will need to trade him out later in the year. Look at birchell for $469k, he is a proven premium.

    Hold Rohan and see if he is selected in team this week. I still think he can be a great cash cow if he avoids the vest.

      tysb · 15/04/2014 at 10:47

      Can not trust Rohan how about Hibberd plus the bye rounds!!!!

    sputnik · 15/04/2014 at 21:05

    suckling is a keepe

Derek · 15/04/2014 at 10:14

Stratton will be back for the Hawks this week and Lake the following week. This will change the defence of the hawks completely. I have noticed that birchell has been spending a lot more time deep in defence as a "tall" instead of his normal half-back running game. once Stratton and Lake is back, Birchell will go back to his running ways and rack up some big SC points.

Birchell is $469k with a BE of 71. You won't get him any cheaper.

Trade Hanley to Birchell and get $50k change.

Michael · 15/04/2014 at 10:15

Does Patrick Cripps have a good job security?

    MightyDonsFC · 15/04/2014 at 13:13

    Wanted to know the same thing, worried about it because juddy is coming back this week

      Beady Eye · 15/04/2014 at 14:46

      A loss this week and surely even Mick would have to realise they're not playing finals and it's time to play the kids.

      Cross your fingers for a Doggies win.

Spiro · 15/04/2014 at 10:20

thinking of going Jimmy webster to Matt Jaensch and Josh caddy to Alex fasolo and having 120k in the bank thoughts?

    MightyDonsFC · 15/04/2014 at 13:21

    Sounds good

tysb · 15/04/2014 at 10:48

Llyod or Fasalo?!

    chandanrajdb · 15/04/2014 at 12:36

    if you are looking bring in one of those this week, I'd definitely be going with Fasolo. If you can wait a week and see how Lloyd goes in his 2nd match and also he needs to be in the team to play his 3rd game to bring him in to the team…..Need to make sure he has got a decent job security……


      tysb · 15/04/2014 at 12:49

      The think I am worrying about Sam Llyod is not having him this round and his price going up by 60-100k

        MightyDonsFC · 15/04/2014 at 13:13

        He's not on the bubble till next round

tysb · 15/04/2014 at 10:49

Hanley out for who?!

    Jordan · 15/04/2014 at 11:00

    suckling or swallow if your looking around same price.
    I think I will go to thumpa though as I have got both hanley, swallow and mitchell and there are no other premiums putting their hands up in the backline

      tysb · 15/04/2014 at 12:14

      who is thumpa

        Sana · 15/04/2014 at 12:22


        MightyDonsFC · 15/04/2014 at 12:53

        If you like being a little bit risky have a look at broadbent, Hampton and adcock

      BlakeyP · 15/04/2014 at 12:30

      Simpson from Carlton is doing okay while they are playing sh*t so he will only get better while they do.

      Just my 2 cents

    Fourbells · 15/04/2014 at 12:56

    Do you need to trade Hanley out or do you have a Langford type sitting on the bench that you can use.
    He might be out for only 1-2 weeks

      tysb · 15/04/2014 at 13:00

      Unfortunately I dont have Langford on the bench

Daz · 15/04/2014 at 11:02

Will 3 hawks be one too many in the backline? Am entertaining the Ideo of Birchall in for hanley with suckling and mitchell already in my team. Thoughts?

    Cyril · 15/04/2014 at 12:48

    I’ve currently got Mitchell, Suckling pig and Langford

    Derek · 15/04/2014 at 13:13

    If you were to have a lot of players from the one team, it might as well be the Hawks 🙂

    They have a round 9 BYE.

    They will score more SC points than most other teams.

    Suckling is not a premium and at some point during the year you will have to trade him out. Birchell is a premium keeper and is only $469k. get him in

      Pat · 15/04/2014 at 14:31

      why do you not think suckling is a premium derek?

      Daz · 15/04/2014 at 20:16

      thanks mate

Sana · 15/04/2014 at 11:19

Can't see any discussion on Buddy? 130 followed by a 29. Would you keep him?

    Derek · 15/04/2014 at 13:15

    if you watched the game on Sunday, you would understand why he only scored 29. his effort was very good, it was just that north Melb didn't allow the swans any clean ball to deliver to him. it was wet and slippery. if you have him, you keep him and don't worry about the price drop. if you don't have him, wait a couple of weeks and you will get him cheap.

Michael · 15/04/2014 at 11:42

Thoughts on Matt De Boer as a POD? Looking the goods so far and is averaging 9 tackles, so probably won’t get below 70.

    Beady Eye · 15/04/2014 at 12:33

    He also gets the defensive forward role a lot, which keeps his scores down. Wouldn't touch in SC, these scores won't last.

Guest · 15/04/2014 at 11:51

Is it a good idea to trade Lloyd this week?

    MightyDonsFC · 15/04/2014 at 12:52

    Wait 1 if you can

    Dogs · 15/04/2014 at 13:31

    I will be, only because I'm bringing him in for Rohan, who won't make his BE and lose more cash

      Derek · 15/04/2014 at 19:09

      Rohan can still be a cash cow. If he can avoid the vest, keep him and don't burn trade

tysb · 15/04/2014 at 12:21

Sam Llyod or Alex Fasalo!?!

    Beady Eye · 15/04/2014 at 12:38

    Didn't you already say (repeatedly) that you traded Rohan to Lloyd?

      tysb · 15/04/2014 at 12:45

      I am not 100% sure about Llyod may be beginners luck ; )

    Derek · 15/04/2014 at 13:18

    Richmond have Round 8 BYE.

    After Brisbane this week, they have the HAWKS and the CATS.

joshpapworth · 15/04/2014 at 13:06

ok so… here are my duds for this round

t. mitchell

i have 50 k in the bank and
was thinking of bringing in jaensch for hanly and some how lloyd
what are your thoughts

    MightyDonsFC · 15/04/2014 at 13:12

    Lloyd isn't on the bubble until next week, so I'd wait and see how he does against the lions this Thursday

    Derek · 15/04/2014 at 13:19

    Langford scored 70SC. wouldn't call that a dud.

      joshpapworth · 15/04/2014 at 20:42

      well its not a great score but probably will keep langford

joshpapworth · 15/04/2014 at 13:07

do i get rid of mitchell or franklin?

    MightyDonsFC · 15/04/2014 at 13:11

    I'm led to believe that titch is playing a lot more down forward instead of in the guts, which is obviously having an impact on his sc scores. You chose buddy for a reason, gotta cop the 30/40 and then rejoice when he gets 130/140

Jack · 15/04/2014 at 13:35

I know everyone is getting in Matty Crouch for the likes of Tyson/Ellis/Aish…. But my gut is telling me to hold. I don't have Aish so all my Mid rooks still have Neg B/e's except Tyson. I reckon Tyson will continue punching out 90's so I'm just not sure if it's worth getting Matty Crouch in this week when these guys still have cash to make? There will be more Mid rookies on the horizon with the likes of Cripps/Gray so my gut is telling me to sit tight. Would love the communities thoughts.

    Bellybuttonfluff · 15/04/2014 at 13:57

    I am thinking along the same lines. Waiting extra week see how gray goes also Tyson gets another good score ( possibly). Crouch has round 8 bye so may not fatten in time. Gray round 9 which is good if trading out Tyson in my case with more outs in round 8 and round 10 than in round 9.

    AKKA · 15/04/2014 at 15:37


Derek · 15/04/2014 at 13:36

How far away is Bock? I hear he played a full game in the NEAL on Saturday.

    Derek · 15/04/2014 at 13:39

    Zac Smith should return Round 9 for the Suns. Word is he could almost play now, but because he is on the long term injury list he can't play until round 9.

      josh · 15/04/2014 at 14:34

      is zac smith cheap, could be an option later on in the year

Tomscoach · 15/04/2014 at 14:01

Hey guys. Wondering what trades to do. I have 5k and 26 trades left. I scores 2289 so I am pretty happy with my team. I am thinking of going Aish to Fasolo via Taylor. Thoughts?

Donut_King · 15/04/2014 at 14:50

Hi community, this is the week where I make my first trades and I need your help.
Here's my team:
Defence: S Mitchell, J McVeigh, D Swallow, M Suckling, L McDonald, T Langdon, J Webster, A Georgiou
Midfield: G Ablett, S Pendlebury, D Beams, T Liberatore, J Polec, L Dunstan, X Ellis, J Aish, M Crouch, L Taylor
Rucks: A Sandilands, M Lobbe, D Currie, T Derickx
Forward: P Dangerfield, D Martin, L Franklin, M Wright, T Mitchell, J Caddy, G Rohan, J Kennedy-Harris
Almost definitely locked in the move from Caddy to Fasolo to generate some cash $. But what are the community's thoughts on the other improvements, downgrades etc. that need to be made.

    Beady Eye · 15/04/2014 at 15:06

    At first glance it's your forward line that is letting you down – virtually every one of them is underperforming. This is where I'd focus your upgrades. Defence and mids look sorted, plenty of cows to cull… maybe overspent slightly on your bench rucks, given their JS is little better than bottom-priced options. Reckon it might be time to move on from Lobbe, monitor for any fallen premiums (Goldy, Dog Dog) as upgrade options. One option would be to make a call on one of your forwards and trade them for Lloyd, giving you enough to upgrade another midpricer to a Riewoldt type. Depends on how you feel about more of a Guns & Rookies look.

      Donut King · 15/04/2014 at 15:12

      Thanks for your input

Pat · 15/04/2014 at 15:00

who would we rather keep, TYSON or DAISY?? one of them 2 is moving to matt crouch and i need your help to decide community!!!

    Beady Eye · 15/04/2014 at 15:27

    Tyson's had 3 good scores to 1 bad.

    Daisy's had maybe 1 good (if you're generous) to 3 bad. And he costs more. And he plays for the worst team in the comp.

      Pat · 15/04/2014 at 21:47

      Good on ya beady eye !!!!

tysb · 15/04/2014 at 15:21

Defence: Jaensch , Swallow , McVeigh, Mitchell , McDonald , Enright, C – Bench Georgiou, A + Fuller, M

Midfielders: Ablett , Pendlebury , Beams, D , Watson , Shiels , Tyson , Dunstan , Polec – Bench Crouch, M + Robertson, N

Rucks: Sandilands , Jacobs – Bench Currie + Thurlow

Forwards: Merret, Martin , Zorko , Higgins , Danger , Sam Llyod – Bench JHK + Honeychurch

Hows my team looking Let me know

Any positives or negitives

    The Filth · 15/04/2014 at 17:54

    Not bad, how many trades do you have left?

      tysb · 15/04/2014 at 19:37

      23 Trades RDT

        The Filth · 15/04/2014 at 22:01

        Trading like a madman – ideally you still need to get 1 premium in defense, 4 mids and 3 forwards. Best also to keep 4 trades for finals.
        You also have several non playing rookies on the bench. Trades are gold.

    Michael · 15/04/2014 at 18:43

    shield out for a montj

      tysb · 15/04/2014 at 19:37

      Who is Montj

        Bob McBob · 15/04/2014 at 19:44

        He tried to say Liam Shiels is out for a month

Dave2008 · 15/04/2014 at 15:41

Im thinking like a lot of others who have Hanley this week to trade and also get rid of Rohan. I have Clurey sitting on the bench but I can use himself Langdon and Laidler at this point so he isnt my biggest concern. Apart from the fact that he isnt generating cash.
B: McVeigh Mitchell Handley D Swallow Suckling Laidler ( Langdon Clurey)
C Ablett J Kennedy Beams Murphy Thomas X Ellis Polec Dunstan (Taylor McDonald)
R Jacobs Sandilands (Thurlow Currie)
F Martin Dangerfield Buddy Zorko Higgins Rohan (Impey Kennedy –Harris)

Option A; Rohan and Hanley out for Fasolo switch McDonald to defense and bring in Crouch. 370 k for upgrades
Option B: Rohan and Hanley for Fasolo and a defender 488 k or less but lose DPP mid/for which can help during byes.

Jag · 15/04/2014 at 16:17

want to go hanley to jaensch, too late for this?
if so, due to hanley's injury, who should i bring in for him?
already got the likes of swallow and suckling

    Rescued Pieman · 15/04/2014 at 16:57

    Gday Jag, Hanley to only miss 2. Grade 1 Hammy, put him on the pine, youll want him back later. Unless you have 29-30 trades.

      Beady Eye · 15/04/2014 at 17:16

      If you go with the official line then yes, only 2 weeks out. Could potentially return in the NEAFL to test out the hamstring though, given the Lions aren't going anywhere this year.

        Derek · 15/04/2014 at 17:22

        Brisbane have a Round 10 BYE, so he would have been perfect to cover for the earlier BYE rounds. If he won't be playing Round 8, he needs to go.

          The Filth · 15/04/2014 at 18:58

          Agreed Derek, I am bringing in K Simpson – premo for premo. Simpson playing R8 too. I'm happy to bring Hanley back in later. The low score in his last game will hopefully shave a few $$$ of his trade price.

            Derek · 15/04/2014 at 19:07

            im thinking Birchell. Will save $50k from the trade as well, Hawks have a Round 9 BYE, won't get birch any cheaper than this. Lake and stratten will be back this week (or next) and this will free up Birchell to go running and collect lots of sweet SC points

              Pat · 15/04/2014 at 21:46

              i love that idea derek, i have mitchell and suckling already, should i trade out hanley for birchall and have 3 hawks??

              The Filth · 15/04/2014 at 22:05

              Do you think Suckling is taking points off Birchall?

          Derek · 15/04/2014 at 23:30

          If anything, I think Hill has been taking points from Birchell. Birchell has been playing deep because of Stratten and Lake not playing. The hawks have had Cheny and sprangher as the talls, so Birchell has needed to go back and help. Hill has been running the ball out of defence, this will be bit bells job

          Derek · 15/04/2014 at 23:42

          You can never have enough hawks:)

Joel · 15/04/2014 at 16:47

Im loving the fact people are trading out titch, hopefully he becomes a POD very soon

    Bob McBob · 15/04/2014 at 16:50

    He won't be a good POD if he continues to score like this

Kristofor · 15/04/2014 at 17:14

I'm going to suck it up and hold Hanley.
He's been good the last few weeks and only out for a couple weeks…
Should be good enough to make my final team.

    Derek · 15/04/2014 at 17:23

    I'm as mean as a cut snake. I traded Hanley in last week and traded Guthrie out.

Derek · 15/04/2014 at 17:52

Let your cash cows fatten. Don't rush to get in Crouch or LLoyd or fasolo if you have to axe a cash cow that still has some cash to be made.

There are always the next batch of rookies making their debute, so if you miss out there will be others.

Word is that Moribito (FRE) is very close, Bock (SUNS) had a full game in the NEAL, Docherty (CARL) is very close, O'Rourke (GWS) has been one of the best for GWS seconds and must be very close, Harvey (PORT) has been playing well but might struggle to get a game, Cutler (BRIS) was the sub on the weekend, but may fill Hanley's role, Honeychurch (WB) has done everything asked and should be in line for selection this week.

Danners16 · 15/04/2014 at 19:13

Hey guys thoughts on Curtly Hampton as a replacement for Pearce Hanley, I'm sick of him getting injured all the time.

    Swans2014 · 15/04/2014 at 19:18

    Go Matt Jaensch.

      Danners16 · 15/04/2014 at 19:30

      Already got Jaensch, I would have gotten him over Hampton first though

        MightyDonsFC · 15/04/2014 at 19:48

        I like the looks of the kid, also consider broadbent and adcock

        Jimmy · 15/04/2014 at 21:39

        I’ve gone Broadbent I feel he will be in my Def at the end if the season.

    WombatsFC · 15/04/2014 at 21:42

    What's the rest of your backline, we're not her to play "Guess who I haven't got?"

Tom · 15/04/2014 at 19:49

Fwd line issues!!! Any help to my weak fwd line would be appreciated
Danger, Martin, Mitchell, Caddy, Higgins, Rohan, BENCH – Impey, JKH
Thinking I will give Mitchell one more week, although he is frustrating the hell outta me. Wanting to get Rohan and Caddy out ASAP!!!
Unsure who to go Fasolo or Lloyd for Rohan
I have $135,000 in the bank, this effects my next trade
What should I do?

tysb · 15/04/2014 at 19:53

Need Help ASAP

Hanley out for 2-3 Weeks

Shiels out for 1 month

I have got Rohan wanting to trade to Sam Llyod…. will Llyods price go up this week in RDT

So please tell me the best two trades out of the ones I say or your opinions!?

A. Hanley to David Swallow and Shiels to Macrae or Bradley Hill (Which one out of Macrae or Bradley Hill)

B. Hanley to Suckling and Shiels to someone worth around 520k or Hanley to a rookie cash cow hows price will go up skyhigh so then I can afford someone like Joel Selwood or Tom Rockliff

B. Rohan to Sam Llyod and Shiels to rookie cash cow whos price will go up this week have already got Dunstan,Crouch,Tyson,Polec anyone else!!!

C. Rohan to Sam Llyod and then swap crouch on field for shiels and then get Swallow for Hanley

Any other plans or ideas let me know!!!

Cheers Ty

    The Filth · 15/04/2014 at 22:07

    Geez tsyb – you should get your own blog…every time you have a change of mind you post it!

      Pat · 16/04/2014 at 14:21

      so true Filth !!!!

joshpapworth · 15/04/2014 at 20:45

what do i do with sheils

    cyril · 15/04/2014 at 20:48

    I would go to crouch

      joshpapworth · 15/04/2014 at 20:51

      already got crouch on my bench and also polec on bench

    Jimmy · 15/04/2014 at 21:51

    Upgrade, don’t sideways trade him

      joshpapworth · 16/04/2014 at 09:28

      who can i upgrade to
      could i possibly downgrade get some cash
      then put the rookie on the bench and bring ellis into the side?

cyril · 15/04/2014 at 20:55

Here's my side.

Swallow, Suckling, Mitchell, Enright, McDonald, Langford (Georgio, Clurey

Ablett, Pendles, Libba, Beams, M.Thomas, Tyson, Polec, Dunstan, (Ellis, Kelly)

Sandi, Mcevoy (Derrickx, Thurlow)

Danger, Martin, Mitchell, Franklin, Caddy, Rohan (Ambrose, JHK)

My forward line is obviously in big trouble. I'm happy to give Mitchell and Buddy more time. Im banking on Mcevoy coming back in as predicted. I'm thinking of possibly getting in Crouch for Tyson which will make me enough to turn Caddy into Reiwoldt

any suggestions?

    Jimmy · 15/04/2014 at 21:49

    How much money have you got. Caddy to Fasolo probs. leave Tyson he’s still got some money to make bringing crouch in isn’t your priority.Maybe then upgrade franklin or Mitchell to N.Roo. Next week sort out the others in your FWDs

      Cyril · 15/04/2014 at 22:42

      I’ve got 174k in the kitty

        Jimmy · 15/04/2014 at 23:28

        I feel your pain, leading into the season that FWD line looked good for points and making money. At least Rohan and JKH are playing Ambrose on the other hand was 10 secs from being subbed off and IMO if fit won’t make the team most weeks. Caddy needs to go as that sub score will affect him now,Fasolo is on the bubble and is well liked by Buckly, bringing him in will give you someone who should score and give you about $120k. So now you have $290 – 300k And 2 underperforming players, your call I don’t want the blame if you cull the wrong one.

Steve · 15/04/2014 at 21:22

Hey community, keep up the great support to usall. Should I hold mummy guys.. Or trade for Jacobs.

    Pat · 15/04/2014 at 21:43

    trade to sauce mate

    WombatsFC · 15/04/2014 at 21:48

    Hi Steve,
    Check his injury history and make a decision based on the likely scenario.
    Fluid in a knee isn't a major issue in itself and it can be drained every second week if required but, it is often a cloaking symptom of a more serious condition. Mummy's knees carry a lot of weight and the way he was throwing himself around before he had the drain is probably why he needed it. I doubt that he'll be able to change his game style.
    Join the dots your answer is there.

      Jimmy · 15/04/2014 at 21:50


      Steve · 16/04/2014 at 07:48

      Thank you so much for the reply. Awesome thoughts. Wanted him as a keeper from the onset. May re think. Trade to Jacobs see how he goes and then consider upgrade in bye round if enough made

        Jimmy · 16/04/2014 at 11:25

        mummy is showing 3-4 weeks on the GWS site now.

          steve · 16/04/2014 at 17:58

          jimmy – yeh done deal see ya mummy (shame) thought he was excellent. have to delay major plans another week 🙁

Pat · 15/04/2014 at 21:52

guys, do we REALLY need to get matt crouch in, is it a necessity if we already have the likes of polec, dunstan, tyson and so on, do we need him or can we save a trade and not jump on him??

    Jimmy · 15/04/2014 at 22:06

    Nope,plenty more will come along. If your rooks are making money leave them alone. I think Tyson will score better this week he got the carrot at the weekend and terrible weather the week before.

      WombatsFC · 15/04/2014 at 22:28


WombatsFC · 15/04/2014 at 22:03

With Wingard and Monfries to come back into the Port side over the next 2 weeks how safe is Sam Gray?

Wingard will be back this week so either Gray or Young will be dropped and Monfries is due back the following week which means another player will have to be dropped.
You'd expect Gray to make the cut this week but will he be the Sub? Likely.
If Gray does play and isn't sub I think team balance would dictate that he be omitted to make way for Monfries the following week.
All this means that you could end up holding on to him for a month (ala Patrick-Relton Roberts-Ambrose) if you bring him in this week.

    Jimmy · 15/04/2014 at 22:07

    Wait on gray and Lloyd 1 week isn’t going to tell the whole story.

      WombatsFC · 15/04/2014 at 22:27

      My point was that even if Gray knocks out another 80+ his position isn't assured.

        Cyril · 15/04/2014 at 22:43


        Jimmy · 15/04/2014 at 23:10

        Yeop agreed. I was trying to reaffirm to anyone reading that waiting on these two is advisable as both are not guaranteed to stay in their respective teams for very long.

Daniel · 16/04/2014 at 00:34

Have Hanley, Mummy, Caddy, Webster, Rohan and Buddy. Which 2 get the chop this week?

    Jimmy · 16/04/2014 at 10:58

    Don’t really know where to start with this one. Can you cover Hanley? If so I’d chop Caddy and Mummy. Webster will still make some money JS high. I’m actually upgrading him this week to cover Hanley. Rohan and Buddy will play and could get points. I’m over Caddy though and a could be sub again, last game on Monday would be annoying. Without seeing what other players or what rookies you’ve got to cover I’m just guessing.

HiltonKid · 16/04/2014 at 09:57

Have Got Hanley , Shiels and Rohan

So what I have done is brang in David Swallow for Shiels in the midfield

Then I swapped Swallow to Defense and Hanley to my Midfield bench

I put Matt Crouch on field who was on my bench

Then I can bring Hanley back when he has recovered from his injury


Any other ideas let me know


    Jimmy · 16/04/2014 at 10:50

    Sounds good, I’ve kept Hanley by taking Titchell down to Fasolo and Webster up to Broadbent. I was planning other trades but had to cover Hanley.

Tomawhawk · 16/04/2014 at 11:25

Hi guys,

Call me crazy but should I hold onto Daisy? I figure with a BE of 60 which I think he can make that against the dogs. It just came through that Mummy could potentially be out for 3-4 weeks plus I have Caddy so I figure I have higher priorities. I already have Crouch as well.

What are your thoughts team?


    pat · 16/04/2014 at 14:23

    yer mate, hold onto daisy, he is versing the dogs so fingers crossed he hits his BE and then trade him to a fallen premium when the byes come round

Roy Boy · 16/04/2014 at 14:32

guys heres my side
BACK: McVeigh, Suckling, mitchell, Hanley, mac and Webster (Georgio and Langford)
RUCKS: Sandi, Pyke (Dericks, king)
FORWARDS: dUSTY, DANGER, buddy, parker, taylor, JKH (Ambrose, Impey)

Where to start, would adore some quality feedback from you all
Cheers !!!!

Flowzion · 16/04/2014 at 21:55

traded Mummy for Jacobs and downgraded Daisy spudling Thomas to Sam Gray. Starting the trade machine up Early. Bringing in S.Mitchell and N.Riewoldt for one of my young backs and mid price fwds respectively. Bold move, or simply crazy?

Most likely you didn’t know that it’s not always
a bad idea to snack late at night. Following some debating
I resolved to go forward and purchase the program so I
could give it an straightforward attempt and read it with an open up
mind. If you want fat burning while you are at rest, doing high intensity interval
training where you go all out for a certain period of time
and alternate it with a short rest.
