Hey guys, love the podcasts. I would love your thoughts on two trading options I’ve got this week. The first being TYSON & HANLEY to CROUCH & SIMPSON.
The second is TYSON & ROHAN to CROUCH & FASOLO – this would mean Hanley is stuck in my backline for another week (I’ve got Webster on the pine atm), and it means Fasolo is a forward starter which I need with L.Taylor, Ambrose, JKH & Rohan (atm).
Leaning towards option 2 with the idea of bringing in someone for Hanley next week, cheers fellas would love any advice.

Jye

Confused as to why you want to trade Tyson? Hold.

cam

Seems to me you should be trading oyt your forward bench before anything! Rohan and JKH now! Tyson hasnt mooed loud enough yet.

log

thoughts on having 4 rookies in the mid? daisy to crouch. polec,dunstan,tyson then choose out of ellis, aish and crouch to play mid 8. thoughts?

SamuelScoach

yes, lots of cash will be generated, so upgrade to premos after the byes asap

log

sweet thanks mate. thomas to crouch, rohan ro fasolo 280k in the bank 26 trades left. very nice!

SamuelScoach

Really want to pick up Lloyd as a rookie fwd, but concerned about the fwd r8 bye players, already have Danger, Martin and ill be picking up Fasolo this week, but 3 is enough, with lloyd in there I, and many others will have 4 r8 bye fwds and on top of the 4-5 r8 bye mids that is not acceptable. Lloyd needs a great score this week as the week 2 score is used for 2 breakevens but his great 131 is only in 1 break even, if he gets a 40 tommorow he will have a nice BE for next week, but the week after's BE will be not so good as the BE will not use his 131 but the 40 and what ever he will be after that. I'm holding for now, nothing less than 65 for me to bring him in,

THE SALTSHAKERS

It will be based on 3 game rolling avg 131 + 40 + ??? lets say 70 = 241/3 = 80ppg avg he is priced at 21ppg so will make good coin first week

THE SALTSHAKERS

At that price no risk really

THE SALTSHAKERS

also might be 2 downgrade targets on bubble next week

Philthy

I've had enough of Daisy, GOOOOOONNNEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hanley to MID bench, McDonald to starting BACK

Daisy to Crouch (who i don't really want…… but)

Impey to Pav, BOOOOOMMMMM!!!

Forward line locked away, Hanley ready to swing BACK when McD hits top $$ to trade for fallen MID premo, i love you community, this podcast is my religion and Jock you are my idol

Adam

That flexible team sounds real nice, I traded my swingers out of mid round 2 🙁

Adam

Isn't Hanley only out for a week or 2?
And how long is Goddard out? Afl site isn't working

SamuelScoach

Goddard has injured his adductor and is expected to return round 6-7

Hanley has injured his hamstring and is expected to return round 8-9

According to herald sun supercoach gold ^

Derek

Brisbane have round 10 bye, I would’nt be surprised to see Hanley out until after bye

WombatsFC

Agreed Derek if they can't get him on the track until round 8-9 that surely wont risk him before the bye.
Or will they? Queenslanders are the sharpest knives in the drawer and they'll probably think its ok to bring him back early because the bye will give him time recover if it breaks again.

Donut King

Jock I know you were keen on a one Josh Caddyhack and Jimmy Webster. What would you do/ have you done with them? Traded or held we want to know and I speak for the whole community, a lot of which own both, when I say this.

Please help!

Daniel

Caddy massive BE so trade this week. He was meant to be a quick stepping stone to a premo, so if u can turn him into a bruest etc and then maybe get crouch in to cover cost. If u got Macdonald in mids you could effectively trade webster for crouch, and as jock would say, solving 2 probs stimulantaneously! Then can worry about Lloyd next week.

Rooster tails

I pulled the trigger on Caddy. I dropped Aish and brought Crouch on to my bench. Banked 140k then straight swapped CaddySlack for big Pav. Still got drama with Mummy but I dont want to use a trade to get him out cos I used one to get him in after round 1. I might hold him for one more week and hopefully his situation is made a little clearer to us then I can decide what im going to do with him. A waste as he was aiming to be a top ruck option this year

Donut_King

Ok Jock. What would you recommend I do instead of moving on from that pair?
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
Thanks 🙂

Fabian

I had a trigger happy finger and moved Caddy on to Rioli when I saw he was starting as sub. I'm worried Caddy could continue to be sub and both bleed cash and not score well. As for Webster, I'd suggest to hold unless you've got the cash to upgrade him.

Derek

Caddy won’t be sub this week. Cats will rest one of their big boys and play Caddy against the Hawks to com at the fast ball movement

Will

Alright community, what should I do, I'm either going to downgrade Cunningham for Matt Crouch, producing 89k OR should I downgrade Caddy to Fasolo generating aprox 90k. Cunningham's BE is 10 so he will most likely go up in price and Caddy's BE is something like 94 so he will go down this week. What should I do!

Philthy

Cunningham, have you got a trade plan for Lloyd if he busts out another big score?? Tiges have dropped Vickery…. Caddy's potential minor loss may be insignificant if Lloyd is going to outscore Fasolo which i think he might

Jack

If you have a dual position FWD/MID in your midfield you could swap them with caddy, trade caddy down to crouch and if Sam Lloyd or Sam Gray have decent games on the weekend, for next weeks trades you can take out one of your midfield rookies eg Xavier Ellis, Dom Tyson swap back the FWD/MID back to your midfield and trade in Sam Gray or Sam Lloyd in your forward line

James

Thanks for answering my questions about daisy – crouch, THANKS CHAMP

Fabian

Love the work of the community in the podcast.
Like a lot of people I'm up shit creek with the fallen lions.
Thinking of the following trades:

Hanley to => Mitchell/Simpson/Broadbent/Murphy/Picken
Luenberger to => Lobbe,Minson, Nic Nat or Jacobs

For the bye rounds, I need to trade to players with the round 9 bye. Gut told me not to start Mitchell (which looked great when he got injured) and I am still weary of him. Very interested in one of the doggy boys as a bit of a consitent P.O.D
As for the rucks, Jacobs seems the only logical choice but he has the dreaded round 8 bye. Is it too drastic to take a punt on Lobbe? Also think Dog Dog is about 2 weeks from going nuts so considering trading to him now, rather than wanting to burn another trade to get him.

Ideally I'd love to hold Hanley and trade out Clurey who is doint nothing and won't do anything, but I can't see any player in DEF under 350K worth getting as a cash cow. Are there any community??

Keep up the good work.

The Garbo

Trent West could be a real interesting ruck option to replace looey on your side – will make some money and put up decent scores that you could potentially cope with.

Kolodazni will make SOME cash in def.

Lobbe doesnt look like he'll live up to the pre season hype. Sauce could be the best fit as there isnt a whole heap of risk picking him besides your rd 8 bye issue.

pleb

Looking for a sanity check on my actions this week please guys.

Hanley – Entire defensive line should play this week excluding him. What's the point in having depth if I flick premiums the second they suffer injury. Holding.

Outs
Caddy and thomas + $672,800
Ins
Fasolo and Crouch – $330,900

Somewhat sideways trading to players with higher growth potential and most importantly puts an extra $341,900 into the kitty.

So when my MID cows start to top out (Polec, Aish, Dunstan, Tyson) I should be in a position to make one of them literally any player in the league I want or potentially upgrade two of them to mis $500K+ premiums.

is there any way I can not make these trades?

Philthy

Happy to bench Hanley (I am also), are you going for league wins or overall?

I'd really only trade Caddy in this situation but I think everyone is way to quick to jump on Fasolo, false idol me thinks

Thomas won't burn a huge hole, you will be able to cash a MID or 2 soon for a Morabito or alike and up Daisy to a fallen premo, same for Caddy

In short, at least they are playing and if this is your only problem i would hold and see what Lloyd does

pleb

Going for league. In an extremely competitive league where making finals will be a challenge. 2-0 thus far, but have a very tough 4 game run starting next week.

Thanks for the input, gives me a bit to think about.

Agree on the Fasolo part. Don't expect him to be banging out 100s every week but think there's an easy 100K+ in him and probably fine to fit into lower Forward position or bench long term if need be.

Philthy

If you pull the trigger on Fas, the sooner you get him to F7 the better, good luck!!

scan

How mant trades have people used already?

log

4. including 2 this week.

throttlefinger

Too damn many, Scan.

PJay

5

james

i know you said no to caddy to fasolo..

What if we have JKH and Rohan.. who do we trade in for them

Dan

Hold this week, look at Sam Llyod next week, also a few other rookies playing their first this week so look at them in two weeks time as well. If you haven't already, bring in Crouch and upgrade Caddy if possible.

Derek

It’s a pitty Lions play first. Won’t be able to hold off doing the Hanley trade by seeing what the bench boys can do first. Same problem next week bris play Friday. Going to have to bite bullet and trade Hanley to Britchell

throttlefinger

Beautiful. Some brilliance to listen to at work that will drown out the office nonsense. Well done.

Considering not moving Webster as well. Have CCameron so using him as a loop between Webby and Langford. Caddy, will wait another week and see what pops up. Lloyd looking like best bet, but may go upstream for a bigger fish.

SCaddict

Have you decided what you are doing with Mummy TF?

throttlefinger

Dealing with him next week, SCaddict. Not enough this week to go to Jacobs. Hope to wait then decide between him and Minson.

Plan can go south if Currie is a no go. Asking the SC gods to grant me this one favor…JUST ONE!

Tom

that song was possibly the weirdest thing I have ever heard

Beady Eye

Some people need to know their limitations. Not everyone is the voice of their generation like Higgo.

confused

why is matt crouch such a priority when there's rookies looking to score better such as Lloyd and Gray. Are we not better to hold off a week and then take our pick next week with potentially higher outputting rookies generating more cash? i mean crouch is not even really scoring that great…..
or is there something i am missing?

Philthy

Good to cash in for now if it buys you out of other problems…

MightyDonsFC

Crouch got 45 in half a game and 80 in a full one. Gray and Lloyd will have to prove that last week wasn't a fluke this weekend to be considered for my team

Beady Eye

Because Lloyd is a small forward who won't kick 3 every week, and Gray (while not traditionally a small forward from what I've heard) is also playing that role by necessity. Just look at JKH for how small forwards can score. Young Crouching on the other hand, averaged 38 touches a game in the TAC and is a ball magnet of the highest order. With Van Berlo and brother Brad out injured, there's also midfield time up for grab, so he's far more likely to continue pumping out decent scores. That's what you're missing 😉

rob

Lloyd isnt a "small fwd" hes quite tall!!

The Garbo

Lloyd was on track for another big game – racking up the ball. Then he took a big clash to the head and didnt look right for the remainder of the game. He looks to be a good buy imo

Adam

Is Hanley worth holding?

If not, should I swap him for swallow rather than trading carthy to fasolo?

SCaddict

It's a hard call and you could go either way on Hanley but I would probably move him on if I had him.

I'll be upgrading Webster to Swallow this week even though it may not be the most bye friendly maneuver. He's just playing too darn well not to have him in your team and the Suns draw is really quite favourable now. He's tonned up every round so far which is more than anyone can ask from a defender.

So Hanley to Swallow looks fine to me Adam.

Dogs

I have been very tempted to trade this week with caddy,Rohan, JKH in my forward line. I just can't bring myself to trade caddy down tho, so my thoughts were to trade Ellis to crouch and then caddy to bruest. But looking at it money wise Ellis is still predicted to earn more than caddy will drop, so will probly hold my trades and hope caddy doesn't get the vest again. Next week Rohan to Lloyd, then I can focus on the bye trading

Philthy

great call! can't see those trades netting you enough extra points to warrant them, at this stage be happy you have fit players!!! HOLD!!

Dogs

Haha, fit players this round, I've had my struggles so far with enright,Mitchell , rockliff missing games and effecting my scores as well as Barlow,michie as injury trades . Trying to be sensible after falling for the zorko hype and trading out wright instead of caddy then.

Give It A Go

Hi community, going through trades like it's fashion, Have had to trade Ryder-Mummy traded Webster-Jaensch, Hodge (didn't know how long he was out for) to Zorko and so and so from the forces above!!, Now I still have Caddy, Mitchell,Daisy,Mummy and Shiels, going to have to keep Caddy, Daisy and Mitchell, need to trade Mummy for Jacobs and Sheils for Crouch at least this will generate some cash for Caddy and Mitchell that are not generating cash at the moment, well you never know this could be the round for Daisy, Caddy and Mitchell to shine, thank you, the gods of supercoach,. just when I need you i'll say a little prayer, come on ladsssssss you can do it, it's TIME TO SHINE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Josh

hey guys, whats your thoughts on robbie gray? thinking of trading caddy out for someone but not too sure about fasolo

MightyDonsFC

Big fan, will go big in the next few weeks to cover for monfries

Dan

good little pick up, but don't expect output like last week when port thrashed brisbane, I'm a port man and I think he's looking at 80-90 for the rest of the season, however, like Dons said, until monfries comes back he's likely to get a few more touches and maybe slot an extra one or two

Daniel

I have Hanley, Mummy, Caddy, Webster, Rohan, Buddy. I'm finally going with Aish to Crouch before Bris play tomoz, then if Currie named I'll hold onto Mummy, and go Caddy to Bruest. Then next week Mummy to Jacobs and Rohan to Lloyd. Trade ass off!

JackoFC

G'day supercoachers, very tough week for all hope everyone's persevering
got a few problems of myself, would love everyone's opinion on these

Alrighty community, which trade (or 2) are of MOST PRIORITY this week

1. luenburger
2. hanley
3. Rohan (to lloyd)
4. T Mitchell (Pav?)
5. J Kennedy Harris (to bloody anyone)
6. upgrade cash cow

* spud Rohan & JKH not starting, but do have lewis taylor on field up fwd

SCaddict

I see 1 and 2 as your priorities. You can then deal with that annoying forward line next week.

Blueprime

1 & 2

wes

I'd want to get rid of Mitchell… has cost me far too much coin, not performing and up against freo this week… so do we think he is anywhere near maintaining this at all?
I'd say 1 & 3 if you can bear to hang onto Hanley
if not, 1&2 like the others say.

tim

so if no key position forwards in our team, who would be the ideal possible forward line???

Kev

Danger, Dusty, Breust, Parker, Gray, ??

Beady Eye

Wingard, Chapman, Rioli, Zorko, Pinch Me Harvey.

Cozza

Mick makes a compelling argument for Pav in his article yesterday. Based on that I would be including Pav in my forwards.

My ideal forwards at the moment would be Danger, Dusty, Parker, Pav, Chappy (if he can stay on the park) and Zorko (hesitantly).

skate or die

jock you're a legend

Daniel

Just putting my 2 cents in. People talking about downgrading Caddy to Fasalo/Lloyd should reconsider. He has a high BE so he must go, but he was orgininally intended as a quick upgrade to a premo, so if you have the coin, or make it by getting Crouch in, upgrade Caddy to Breust Zorko Rioli etc. Then watch Lloyd for a week and get rid of Rohan for him next week. One less trade goin straight to premo rather than side stepping to Fasalo then another trade to a premo later down the track.

Ocker

That is fine if you have money in the bank.

mango

Mitchell to Pav, Breust, Gunston or Westhoff? Looking for a bit of a POD so wanting to avoid Roughy.

wes

HI Mango
Mitchell to anyone sounds good at the mo. I'd go breust or gunston simply because they are smaller players, likely to garner more touches midfield. and flip a coin between the two.
Pav will rise in price I believe, with a low break even, but you'd be looking for a keeper here.

Adam

On the AFL site it says god dares 1-2 weeks, should I hold, or will he still underperformance with a nagging groin injury?

Daniel

Bomber doesnt mind resting his senior players early on.

Adam

So watons Js is low?

Ocker

Watson does not have an injury.

WombatsFC

God dares to put an ugly head like that on a good footballer.

Rescued Pieman

Nick Robertson named in the ball community. Jock talked him up all preseason. I like his job security short term & could be invaluable in round 8. If you can avoid pulling the trigger on crouch this could be your man .

HiltonKid

Lucky I had him sitting on my bench with Matt Crouch and will Crouch play?

Rescued Pieman

Community keep your eyes on Darcy Gardiner playing his first game for the Lions tonight. Could be a very handy round 7 trade in when Langdon McDonald & Thumper have the bye. Cash & points in round 8!

Azmataz

Great podcast Jock! Cheers mate. Crouch is coming in now. Daisy gone. Not sure whether I'll get Fasolo now..Lloyd can wait another week. Was going to chop Tichell but now having second thoughts..

Rescued Pieman

Gday Azmataz ive got Buddy & Tichell, both stinkng it up. Hang on till the byes I'd suggest & then make the call.

wes

What are people's thoughts on when to get Swan back into team – and who would you trade out to get him in?
If I had enough cash it would be Polec to Swan – but when?
Appreciate your thoughts – I am becoming much better at this game because of this site and the whole community – thanks all!!!!!!

Dan

I don't have SC gold but I imagine Swanny is still on the way down, and Polec still has a bit of money left in him, I'd start to target your fallen premos during or after the bye rounds.

Harrison

trades:
caddy–fasolo
titch–pav

Azmataz

Looks a bit sideways there mate. I am hoping Fasolo will be playing a Shaw like role fom here on out – so I have brought him in for Impey. But yeah Caddy does need to go.

Not sure about Titch to Pav. Is there another way of getting Pav in?

Colin

SOMEONE HELP THESE ARE MY TRADES THIS WEEK IF I TRADE 25 LEFT

HANLEY OUT JAENSCH IN

ROHAN OUT FASLO IN THOUGHTS

Beady Eye

BOTH LOOK GOOD

Kristofor

LOOKS GOOD. CAPITALS ARE IMPORTANT!

Luke

What is a more important trade to make this week
Mumford to Jacobs
Rohan to Fasolo

Adam

MY TRADES FOR DIS WEEK;

mumford out – jacobs in
hunter out – fasolo in

Shaun

Should I trade D. Thomas for Matty Crouch??? And how about Caddy for Fasolo or hold??

Beady Eye

Full steam ahead on both of those.

Shaun

Thanks mate!! Or would I be better off waiting untill loydd next week for caddy?

Bill

lloyd

Beady Eye

I've opted for Lloyd over Fasolo myself.

Cheaper (therefore more profit to be made) and one of the shining lights for a rubbish Tigers team, so has likely locked himself into that spot for a few weeks.

Fasolo's still a good option but he's learning a new role, so maybe a down game brings his JS into question. If he keeps racking it up he may attract Heath Shaw's old forward tag. Brown, Dwyer, Seedsman and Sinclair all coming back in the next couple of weeks also.

Bill

Thanks mate!! Greatly appreciated. You guys are awesome!!

Flacid Jaff

I'm making these exact trades as well mate!
GO for it!

Bill

Thanks mate!!!

Forbesy

Community, I was a smart one who didn't start with Danger in my forward line because of his slow starts to the season but i do have buddy. Is it a sidways trade if i give buddy the flick next week for danger as buddy is a massive turd in my forward line. thanks.

Flacid Jaff

Wait till round 9 or 10 if you can mate, Danger will be at his price trough and you'll avoid a zero through the byes!

Adel bye rd 8, Syd bye rd 10

Forbesy

Didn't even think of that, cheers mate!

Gab

decca keep your head up, all you need to do is try to beat Gab in the GF!!

sammyd

what about marc murphy

Will

what about marc murphy?

Azmataz

HOLD!

BSeries

Caddy predicted to go down to 270-280k. Fasolo Predicted to rise to 270k. Just remember if you hold Caddy and trade next week to a Lloyd, you will still pocket 70k more than going to Fasolo this week.

canman1306

Hey Fellas
Thoughts on Will Minson as a Replacement for Mummy
He is Bye Frendly and has an awesome Ruck Draw coming up of Carlton, Adelaide, Esendon and Melbourne
Should Dominate the Hitouts in these Games
Thoughts?

Azmataz

Sounds good, and he is a bit of a bargain at the moment. I reckon do it.

Bland

Is it worth trading Pyke to Jacobs?

canman1306

Do not Sideways

Dolp

Daisy Out, Hanley to midfield bench, Jaensch In
Thoughts?

Dan

That's exactly what I did with Shiels, bit unsure of myself though. You should make some money off Jaensch but not too sure if he can maintain the form he's in. Also the early bye is a concern, however the crows do have a soft run up to the draw and they're coming off the back of their big win over the saints.
I'd say go with your gut mate, depends how many trades you are willing to burn because you might require a corrective sideways doozy down the road with Jaensch.

HiltonKid

Good idea stick with it I have got Rohan,Shiels and Hanley and what I did is get swallow in for Shiels swapped Swallow into defence and Hanley onto midfield bench and luckliy I had Matt Crouch onto field for Hanley… this allowed me to get Sam Llyod this week for Rohan.

HiltonKid

Joel Selwood or Tom Rockliff looking to bring them in for Hanley next week

Spiro

Selwood

Beady Eye

Joelwood. Moved into the Ablett/Pendlebury class.

Dan

Opinions on Jaensch?

Azmataz

I'm not jumping on the Jaensch train. Not proven and could end up like the Charlie Dixon last year (smashing out 100s then as soon as I trade him in – gone injured..)

But yeah – everyone seems to be jumping on, I'm keeping well clear..

Dave

G'day community. 2 trades this week. First is Mummy to Jacobs. Second trade is where I need some advice…

I'm going to trade out Caddy. I'll have enough money to take Pav/Gunston or similar, or could take Fasolo for the cash. The Mummy trade means I'll miss out on a cash grab such as Thomas->Crouch this week. Next week I plan on doing Impey->Lloyd (which won't make much cash) and Thomas (or a peaked rookie) ->Robertson/Gray. After that I'm worried about a lack of downgrade options leading into the byes, so the extra money from Fasolo could be very useful.

Is it more important to get another keeper in early and need one less trade later, or make some more cash while I've got the chance?

Thanks for any help

Dan

I reckon you might as well hold Caddy for one more week, offload Thomas for Crouch and make some profit, then upgrade Caddy next week and see if the likes of Lloyd and Gray are consistent enough to earn a spot in your side.

Dogs

All the SC gold BEs changed over night? This changes my trading strategy if the new ones are correct

Jai

I noticed that… Dom Tysons BE went from 49 to 38??

Jai

And now its 52 and all the mid rookies went from – BE’s to + BE’s…

Beady Eye

Now showing as 52. All over the shop.

Dogs

Yep, polec , Ellis, Langford, McDonald all had – BEs now they are +

Juzzk1d

Hey Guys need some much needed advice.

Currently ranked 170, feel like I'm doing pretty well and want to continue doing so. My current team is:

DEFENDERS:
Swallow, Jaensch, McVeigh, Suckling, Mitchell, McDonald [Laidler, Georgiou]

MIDFIELDERS:
Ablett, Pendlebury, Beams, Polec, Rockliff, Dunstan, Tyson, Dale, Thomas [Landon,Crouch]

RUCKS:
Sandilands, Jacobs [Currie, King]

Forwards:
D, Martin, J, Merrett, Dangerfield, Wright, Higgins, Fasolo [L,Taylor, JKH]

I Just traded out Hanley to Jaensch which banked me quite a bit, and I'm now thinking of downgrading Dale Thomas to S, Gray from Port. Thomas breakeven is at 77 and don't think he will reach that, so I was thinking of trading him out and banking some $ and then starting Matt Crouch.

If that's the case my $ in the bank will be at $388,800 which I think puts me in a good spot in buying fallen premiums in the next few weeks.

Thoughts guys?

Rescued Pieman

Also like the look of gray from port, but I’d have a look at him for another week & also Nick Robertson. I’d give daisy another week. Cheers

lostlarrikin

Id be thinking a daisy upgrade if you have the $.
Maybe to Wines

WombatsFC

Like your gunna listen to our advice.
I reckon you're just bragging at your ranking of 170 although, I'm damned if I can workout how that squad could be ranked 170 I just don't see the points. Unless you've traded Mummy and a couple of ultra high scorers already.

Donut_King

Thoughts on Cam Guthrie as a POD?

Jai

What do you reckon he is capable of averaging from here on in?

Tani

Not a lot. If he keeps getting the tagging role.

Marcus J

ive had him from the start, was close to moving him on last week then he spat out a 125 so ill hold the faith, when he tagging he'll prob only average 80 but if he gets a free run at it then he can spit tons

Bob McBob

With Taylor Hunt back, Guthrie will spend more time in defence

Kristofor

Tough call for me this week…

Keen on getting rid of Cameron Clay (injured/not scoring well anyway), Webster (not scoring), Caddy (vest prone?)

Unsure about Hanley (have cover). Would LIKE to hold him.

Keen on obtaining (In order of preference and up for debate): Swallow, Jaensch, Fasolo and Lloyd.. about 70k in the bank.

Choose one of the following double trades.

A: IN Swallow OUT Webster // IN Lloyd OUT Caddy

B: IN Jaensch OUT Webster // IN Fasolo OUT Caddy

C: In Jaensch OUT Clay // IN Lloyd OUT Caddy (Webster on bench hoping he goes up in value eventually)

D: In Swallow OUT Hanley // IN Fasolo OUT Caddy

E: Other suggestion.

Those are probably in order for me… but I’ve reverse traded about 37 times so far…

lostlarrikin

D.

markstar9

hey guys!!! I've got mike pike in ruck, if i make any trade this week…im thinking pyke to sauce jacobs – bit of a sideways but what do you reckon??

rob

Super sideways man. My thoughts anyway.

The Garbo

a unique option could have been, pyke to west – pocket 100k and surely west will eventually avg 80ish with no looey for quite awhile.
On a side note Derickx seems to be eating into pykes output – could be worrying

Tani

My team ATM

DEF: MIchel, McVeigh, Swallow, Jench, Langford, Langdon Bench: Grifith, Hanley
MIDS: Abblett, Watson, Cotchin, Beams, Liba, Tyson, Polec Dunstan Bench: Ellis, M Crouch
Ruck: Sardi, Hickey Bench: Mummy, Currie
FWD: Martin, Zorko, Titchell, Merret, Pavlova, Lloyd Bench: S Frost, Ambrose

Decided to hold mummy and hanley. Traded in Lloyd and M crouch this week for Rohan and Georgiou (Swung langdon to def to cover hanley). Counting on Mithell and Hickey playing.

Comments welcomed and appreciated.

Rescued Pieman

I’m keeping Hanley as well. If he’s only out for 2 & you trade him you might regret it. But only if you have cover.. The Sam Mitchell thing is a worry. Monday game so could be a late out. So if I was you I’d keep a trade up your sleeve this week in case of Monday carnage. If hate to have Mitchell & Hanley in the pine & 5 rookies

Weasel

Some advice on whether this has merit pls.
Daisy traded out to Jaensch (allowing Hanley to be moved to mids)
Hanley sits on bench for this week with either Polec, Dunstan, Tyson or Crouch as company
Impey to Fasolo/Lloyd.
Next week can trade Hanley to a Griffen etc.

Pat

hey guys, if i have crouch on the bench, he still goes up price doesnt he?
also could you please tell me which one to have on the bench: Tyson, Polec, Dunstan or Crouch? Cheers

canman1306

Yeah no matter where they are in your team the Prices always Fluctuate

canman1306

Despite the AFL website listing Mumford yesterday as a 3-4 week return on their injury list, the Giants have announced he will miss a maximum of only two games.

rosco_peco

"The Doc says: Hunt is in doubt with scans to determine the severity of his knee injury. Mumford had a knee arthroscopy to alleviate chronic soreness and swelling, which isn't a good sign. The club says he will miss 1-2 weeks but he will likely need 3-4 to be back to proper mobility. – 16/4"

BeagzBoyz

definitely holding on mumford. Too good to be trading out then back in after the byes when he's scoring 120's

Lol

is there any reason trading in crouch, if he is just gonna sit on the bench?

Beady Eye

He still generates you cash, regardless of whether he's on field or not, which is his primary purpose.

rosco_peco

Agreed. He's gonna make you a lot of cash on field or not. I'm looking to play him on field, who else do you have in the guts?

Kenny Powers

the TURD BROTHERS .. absolute classic Jock!!!

HiltonKid

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

Midfielders: Ablett , Pendlebury , Beams, D , Watson , Matt Crouch , Tyson , Dunstan , Polec – Bench Crouch, Hanley + 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

Besides the non-playing rookies on my bench….

lostlarrikin

3 mid bench?

Yes need more cash generation on bench overall

WombatsFC

Your weekly scores should tell you better than any of us can whether or not you have a good team.
I see a few cautions starting with Enright who will average about 10pts below last year, 4 on field rookies in the middle and Merrett up front.
Also non-playing bench players cost you about $50k p/week each whilst there are a heap of fat little cows around

oliverfisher

Thinking of going Caddy to Pav or Rioli this week. Not sure what i should do with hickey and Hanley. Here is my current team.

Backs: Mitchell, Swallow, Jaensch, Mcdonald, Webster, Langdon ( Laidler, Hanley)

Mids: Rockliff, Shuey, Beams, Cotchin, Fyfe, Polec, Tyson, Dustan ( Ellis, Sheed)

Rucks: Sandilands, Hickey ( Currie, Thurlow)

Forwards: Martin, Zorko, Mitchell, Higgins, Caddy, Fasalo (dahlhaus, JKH)

Thoughts on who i should trade out, i have 188,800 in the bank

rosco_peco

Injuries first mate

MightyDonsFC

Someone else who has shuey 🙂

WombatsFC

Caddy & Mitchell

JJM

Titch to Reiwaldt if had $188K in the bank, that would be the trade I'd make.

THE SALTSHAKERS

Dane Swans tweet of Billy Brownless (from last nights footy show) up now for retweeting –

Tazboy

What do we think about Steven May (GCS) for Hanley. He's only 390K and averging 94 (which is same as McVeigh)?

Bob McBob

Remember May is a key position player, it is risky and maybe not worth it at the moment. You may need to trade May out of your team at the end of the year anyway

Beady Eye

His average is also inflated by the122 against Freo in the wet, after getting on the end of a lot of scrappy kicks into the forward line.

Scythe

If I trade Daisy for Crouch, ill be able to upgrade Caddy to any forward under 570k.
Options include: Wingard, Roughead, Westhoff, Breust, Rioli. Harvey etc.

Wouldn't mind Westhoff as a POD (3% ownership), though I'm worried about Port's upcoming draw

Thoughts?

If Tom Mitchell isn't named, then I will likely do Daisy and Mitchell for Fasolo and Watson/Fyfe

Haze

Caddy>Fassolo

Daisy>Treloar

Thoughts???

Haze

For my two trades this week

Scythe

If you're limited cash-wise, maybe have a look at Nathan Jones. Only about 480k IIRC

rosco_peco

I like Caddy to Fasolo as much as Jock loves a beer!
Daisy to Macrae maybe?

Daz

Treloar is a good POD, but personally Id go Joey Kennedy who is around the same price as I think we've missed the boat with Treloar.

Derek

Kennedy scored 120 last week when most other swans couldn't get 70

Sana

Looking at bringin in another premium forward. To keep long term who would you choose from Breust, Parker, Westhoff or Roughead? (or any other recommendations/POD's around that price?)

Sana

Martin or Pavlich even?

Derek

out of that 4, there is only one who is a premium. Roughie!

Scythe

Definitely would argue that Westhoff is a premium now.

Shaun

Do you guys think Caddy will be the sub??

Bob McBob

Probably not, but he will still fall in price unless he tons up

Beady Eye

Geez, wouldn't that be a laugh at the expense of all those (still) advocating for holding another week!

Derek

no, cats will need all the run they can get.

Rowdy

what are peoples thoughts on Crouch v Cripps (carl)

Scythe

Crouch > Cripps

Scythe

Wouldn't touch any Carlton players with a barge pole

rosco_peco

Cripps will be great but with Carltons form I'm not interested. Crouch with the Crows up coming fixture looks great!

rosco_peco

Mumford to Jacobs pretty straight forward, but Thomas or Cunningham to Crouch?

Beady Eye

Thomas – BE is greater than his average, time to go.

lostlarrikin

agree, bye bye cotton-pickin flowering flower!

@NambyLad

Everywhere I go, it seems like no one is considering Cox in the rucks?

Hasn't missed a game in 4 years.

Has averaged 107+ in the last 3 years including a 122 average in 2011.

Doesn't stuff up bye structures like Jacobs/Goldstein do.

Has potential to post mammoth scores. For example, 171, 149, 158 last year. A pair of 141's, 149 and a huge 215 in 2012.

And he hasn't played as bad as everyone is saying this year so far despite his average being down. Sure, he got a measly 63 against the Dees, but the 77 against the Cats can be excused because the Eagles kicked NO goals in 3 quarters, and I can pretty much assure that wont happen again. I doubt any ruckman could get close to 100 with their team being smashed like that.

And the "he's getting old" argument just doesn't work. I've said that to myself in the last 3 years but every year he just keeps going. He might be 32, but last year he was 31, and the year before that he was 30.

Bob McBob

Probably look elsewhere as now the Eagles play up to 3 ruckmen in their team. (Cox, Nic-Nat, Sinclair/Lycett)

Beady Eye

THIS is why people are bypassing Cox, and people like me who have him are contemplating trading him out at some point.

He gets, at best, half of West Coast's hitouts with Naitaniu and one of Sinclair/Lycett splitting time with him in the ruck. Given he's closer to the end than the start of his career and the others mentioned represent the future for the Eagles, there's less reason for the coaches to play him there at the expense of blooding their younger rucks.

WombatsFC

Everybody considering Cox should read Beady Eye's comment.

Derek

you are right, but he is just expensive for what you get now.

Dom

Thoughts on Nick Riewoldt?

Bob McBob

if you have the cash, get hum

Bob McBob

*him

james

daisy to crouch, hanley to …, ben mceovy to jacobs, jkh/rohan to fasolo/llyod/william.

what two should i do jock

Anth

Hey all..

Hanley to Suckling or to Jaensch? I don't have Swallow, but I need the cash to upgrade Rohan to Fasolo.

WombatsFC

I've had enough of religious groups imposing their strange beliefs and rules on footy fans and denying us a game on the chocolate rabbits birthday. Send them back to the dark ages or wherever it is that they come from and play some footy.

Wattsieesq

Chocolate rabbit birthday is Sunday. We get games that day too. Win for all.

WombatsFC

Thanks for the headsup Wattsie, I would've looked like a right fool if I turned up for his party tomorrow.
I appreciate that the Royal Childrens Hospital Appeal is a very worthy cause and I understand having a holiday so that fundraisers don't have to take a day off work, but why dont they play footy?
Surely the increased traffic of a footy crowd would increase the amount of money collected by the only traffic light collectors we should ever give money too.

Wattsieesq

No worries mate. Don't want you looking like a goose when you clearly are a wombat.

You'll get your wish in a years time. You can then sit back and watch classics like North v Blues, Dogs v Lions and or Dees v Giants while chowing down on choc eggs.

Tonystigers

Have Grundy in ruck, have used no trades this week and have the cash to upgrade to Jacobs. Is it worthwhile?

Bob McBob

yes

Jn101

Option 1: Mumford> Jacobs & Caddy> Fassolo +$350,400 in bank

Option 2: Mumford> Jacobs & Daisy> Treloar + $79,200 in bank

Option 3: Mumford> Jacobs & daisy> Macrae + $193,400 in bank

Option 4: daisy> Macrae & caddy> Fassolo + $198,700 in bank

Option 5: Daisy> treloar & caddy> Fassolo + $84,500 in bank

JJM

Mumford >Jacobs & Daisy>Premo

Bob McBob

Option 1

chandanrajdb

Option 1 definitely……now that Caddy is out for 2 months with a broken leg……trade him out now……

Cheers,
Raj…..

Jn101

Cheers guys! Would Lloyd or Fassolo be the better option? As Fassolo could potentially be another problem and llyod could’ve had a one off for his first

ilikepie

thinking of trading d.thomas to d.swallow. thoughts?

The Garbo

not a bad move. Daisy looks disinterested in playing or putting his body on the line to rack up the possessions. You need to boot him and swallow is having a great season to date

chandanrajdb

Hello Community,

Breaking News…..

CADDY OUT FOR 2 MONTHS WITH A BROKEN LEG…..TRADE TRADE TRADE……FASOLO / LLOYD….

JJM

Thats it I had it. I think I better go to the bottle shop drink my sorrow away.

Shaun

What do I do!! 3 options and I need to pick 2!!
Caddy to Fasolo
D.Thomas to Crouch
Rohan to Lloyd
Please help guys!! Which two??

WombatsFC

Caddy & Rohan and Mitchell have been dropped. so your decision is made for you.

Shaun

So don’t worry about the potential coin loss with Crouch??

chandanrajdb

Caddy to Fasolo

D Thomas to Crouch

Only if you are not concerned with rd 8 bye…..

Rohan is not playing this week and will not loose any money…you can watch Lloyd for one more week and can make sure he is selected in the team for his very important 3rd game and bring him in for rohan next week….

Just my thoughts….

Cheers,
Raj…..

MightyDonsFC

1 3

james

Corey Enright?

Ill

Bob McBob

Mumford
Tom Mitchell
Josh Caddy

WombatsFC

All three Caddy & Rohan have been dropped and Mumford is broken.

MightyDonsFC

Caddy broke his foot

BeagzBoyz

Billy

rohan, impey or JKH.

MightyDonsFC

JKH if he's not sub

MightyDonsFC

Rohan is out

chandanrajdb

JKH if he is not SUB…..or you can use Rohan for emergency loophole….between JKH and Impey

MightyDonsFC

Bontempelli and O'Rourke named!!!

The Garbo

Was really hoping that bonte would be held on the sidelines for another 2-4 weeks. Wouldve done wonders to help my team

Tommykwr

What order will these players score?
Polec, aish, Tyson, Ellis, Dunstan
And Tom Williams or Lewis taylor

chandanrajdb

I am going with Tyson, Dunstan, Polec….BENCH Ellis and Aish…

Cheers,
Raj….

WombatsFC

Serious doubt that Crouch will play he's named 6th on a 7 man bench with 3 to be ommitted. If he plays I reckon he'll be sub

sputnik

I knew Titch would get dropped. Carnage

sputnik

So glad i dumped caddy last week. now to deal with mummy, hanley and titch who will all be out for 4 weeks. Damn!!!!!!!!!!

Azmataz

Is Titch out for 4 weeks?

BeagzBoyz
