The Easter weekend chinwag

Published by Jock on

Jock Reynolds - The Father of FantasyGood Friday? Worst bloody Friday of the footy season for mine.

Thank Christ for the Bonbeach Sharks v Edi-Asp Grand Final replay down at Shark Park yesterday. Sharks couldn’t get across the line but that was besides the point. Wayno and I had a great day watching FOOTY. Not bloody Soccer. Not bloody Rugby. FOOTY.

Fix this rubbish Andrew or Gillon or whoever is calling the bloody shots these days. A ridiculous state of affairs. If I know something about the old JC – its that he would have been next to Wayno and I with his mates yesterday as well.

 

**PODCASTΒ MONDAYΒ NIGHT THIS WEEKEND FOLKS**

Had a ripper arvo at Shark Park Good Friday with Wayno.

Had a ripper arvo at Shark Park Good Friday with Wayno.

Enough of that. Onto more important matters –

How are we all travelling this round so far? What are the trade issues you’re mulling over? How is your team getting on?

Michie > Robertson

Impey > Fasolo

I’m very conscious of the round 8 bye, and that if why I elected not to bring in Crouch. Also, I think Robertson has decent job security with Rich out, only boosted by a strong performance on Thursday. Quite simply, I want Fasolo on my field getting me 80s instead of Impey’s 30s. Was super tempted to get Lloyd a week early and save 100k, but I think Fasolo will prove to be the better choice after Lloyd scored only ~55 and IMO will get dropped soon.

Next week, if all goes well;

Tyson > Gray

Langdon > Frawley

Thoughts?

Kev

To be fair on Lloyd he copped a pretty big hit late in the second and didn't recover well. Was on 42 at half time. Recorded 6 tackles as well.

Frawley is an interesting one. Never been fantasy relevant and will likely shift back once the dees get some of their tall forwards on the park

David

I actually disagree on Frawley and think he will play just as well, if not better, in defence. Roos’ high possession plan means he is getting more uncontested marks, possessions and effective kicks than ever. In just his second year, Frawley avg’d ~80 points as a half back flanker and was named all australian. Since then, he was played as a key defender, but I’m thinking and hoping he continues his role off the flank for the rest of the year.

Brewy

Thinking of Tyson -crouch ,rohan-Parker/Pavlich thought??

canman1306

Anyone considering Patty Cripps n the bubble I definitely know I am.

JX20

Same. Looks a ripper and wins his own ball. He’s a big handballer in close which hopefully helps with DE. JS looks sound.

Shaun

Amen

Dools

G'day Jock , Glad one of had some footy to watch. So I live my Friday thru you and Wayno…..I was so bored.
I put Sauce in me Ruc's for Mummy but I'm a bit gun shy on Fasolo as he would be another round 8 bye player. So I'm leaning towards Pav or even Chappy for Matt Rosa putting Caddyshack in the Mids on the pine. Also was thinking of Webster Out for Grimmes, I think Webster is safe this week as Fwd. line is a real headache.
Even Jackson Macrea for Tyson is floating thru the ol' noggin mate.
I'm looking forward to the Pies North game, I will listen to the call on Trip MMM I think North in a close upset win
Hope your long weekend goes well mate

throttlefinger

Nice move to Sauce. Going to keep Mummy for another week. Didn't have the coin to get BS in there. Oh well.

Hoping Pendles delivers big tonight. Would love a nice plump 150+ to help boost Currie's score. Ugggggh.

Dools

I have Currie on the pine mate still have $440 k in the bank but I made a cardinal error last week I meesing around with trades and some how I locked Pizzaboy Paperone in my team Not Happy So I'm being extra cautious this week and from here on in as quite a few in the community inc myself have been caught out!
Thatsaid I have Pendles as my VC also but I think North will roll them, But he is an Awesome player. Last weeks shocker is behind me looking forward to some Footy this weekend Thank God! LOL Good Friday is gone ……

throttlefinger

Really think roos are going to roll? Still a bit unsteady of a bunch. Pies have looked strong in their games. Can see them winning by 16+.

Yeah, the SC gods have not been kind to ol' Throttle. But rebounding and moving forward in high gear without the brakes. My confidence needs 2200+, man. Just been crushing the last few. Not gonna lie to ya, Dools.

WombatsFC

Happy Chololate Eve Throttle I hope you've got the eggs sorted for the kids.

I gotta laugh when I look back to pre-round 1 and read the condemnation of my Sandi/HayMac ruck combo from various members, "it's too risky Wombats" and "you'll have to trade at least one of em before round 5 Wombats" "it's suicide Wombats". Yes, the community crucified poor old Hamish but, Wombats still haven't traded in the ruck. A plethora of injuries in the backline is the only reason the Wombats are languishing in the bottom half of the top 1% and now that most of my 1st choice defenders are playing and I've managed to squeeze 6-premo's into my midfield we can start our assault.

throttlefinger

To quote a great man, your mum must be proud.

WombatsFC

Lol. Modesty is a sin

Yawn

So is performing the roll of a clown without getting the pay packet that accompanies it, but you seem to get away with it so more power to you!!

Fabian

Happy Easter to the community. Took a gamble and went Luey to Nic Nat and Ambrose to Lloyd. Tmitchell being out stung a bit with only JKH and AMbrose on the bench. needed to trade lloyd in early just for coverage. hope it pays of and he can me some cash before round 8. Needed a round 9 ruckman and was tossing up between Lobbe/Minson/Mcevoy and Nic Nat. No risk, no reward…. haven't taken a trick so far this season with hanley/luey/hurn/fyfe, so surely it's time to turn things around

Kev

The boffins at supercoach need to look at a reverse trades button for use all week. Makes sense if the traded in/out players haven't played yet. Sacrificed X. Ellis for cash to upgrade Caddy to Pav, but the got hit on the Friday with Hunter dropped. Trades gone and now facing a donut

Azmataz

Well Ellis got a whopping 2 SC points so you didnt miss out on much there!

Remy

Hi community, unfortunately I believe Matt Crouch is likely to recieve the vest.

Emma

If he is the sub would you still trade him in

Jake

Yes even if he can get a 30-50 from the sub vest ill take it on my bench

matt

ill take 104 from him on the field

Shaun

Thoughts and Pav everyone??

throttlefinger

Love Pav. Was going to slot him because 3 out of the next 5 are at Paterson. He's at the same amount Cloke was before he went apeshit. Could be this year's version of it. Would highly consider. May try to bring in next week for Caddy (using him as loop this week).

Shaun

Thanks mate!!! Would you be worries about rest later in the year or is it to far way to even start considering??

throttlefinger

Only if they were a lock and it was a meaningless game. In other words, maybe during SC finals but not before. He doesn't have a nagging injury, but yes, he's older and injuries come easier. But he's an elite key forward.

Also, by the time his value goes way up, you have the option to trade for someone else. Much like Dimma did last year with Cloke.

Shaun

Okay thanks heaps mate!! Appreciate your words!!

SCaddict

Just traded in Pav for Titch myself. Was going to give Titch another week or two to turn his form around but the omission/sore ankle this round was the final straw.

Vacillated between Pav, Parker, Breust, Fasolo and even the Hoff but the ole champ looks to have found some decent form in the past fortnight and represents pretty decent value sub $450K.

throttlefinger

Of the bunch you mentioned, I'd swing to Pav too, SCaddict. Price and big score potential the highest, especially given the games before the byes. Could help offset the R8 outs as well.

Will be trying to bring him in next week for Caddy.

SCaddict

Should be the perfect use for the Cadfish! He turned out not to be who we thought he would be in 2014 and now the busted foot has taken all the guesswork out of how much longer coaches persisted with him.

Shame you can't swing this move this week but I'm aware of all the other fires you have to put out this round.

WombatsFC

Hi SCAddict, I hope you got through a football-less friday without too much trauma. With the rampant inconsistency of forwards this year I went Titch for Rocky. I couldn't see the sense in getting another premo fwd when the 4 I have are like Jekyll and Hyde. It meant I had to put Lloydy at F6 and Fasolo at F5 this week but I reckon Danger is just about to realise that preseason is over so I might grab hold him for next week

SCaddict

Yes managed to survive a Friday without footy if only just. About to head off to a mate's place soon to catch the Swans Freo clash.

Bringing in Rocky is never a bad play. Will make Wombats even more formidable than it already was.

Remy

Who would be your number 1 trade in option for Lachie Hunter?
Just heard the news, can afford anyone below 370k.

Shaun

Do you have Fasolo?

throttlefinger

Is he out injured or form? Would say Fasolo but he's value is high enough that you could upgrade. Consider that as well.

Sleepy

Can I be bold and suggest one that's gone under the radar. Tom Williams from Western Dogs. $189,900 and on the bubble to rise $39,000 this week and a -33 BE. Averaging 73. He has been around a while now so has the experience.

WombatsFC

Hiya Sleepy, yeah I noticed him amongst the options of cash cows. The only concern with Tom is that he's rather fragile. He's the sort of bloke that could break an ankle putting his boots on. Yes he'll make some $ early but it's high risk, sort of like investing your hard earned in a Geelong Building society in the 80's Fantastic returns but likely to evaporate overnight.

JX20

Liked what I saw with Tom Cutler Thursday night with his 89 pts. On the bubble 117K as a defender. Is he worth considering for say a Webster? JS?

The Regular

Did cutler wear the vest with his first score of 19?

MightyDonsFC

Yes

Sleepy

He wore vest but came on early 2nd quarter when Lionberger went down

throttlefinger

Considering the same JX20. Unless Webster goes 80+ this round, he's out for Cutler. Looked very strong and poised for a rook.

George

92 for Webster throttle

throttlefinger

Yep George. Lives to play another round on the team

WombatsFC

Absolutely JX. Most of that 89 on Thursday came after halftime I think he was on 27 or similar at half time and he'd been practically invisible with the other rooki Gradiner getting all the points. I think Leppa switched roles between them at half time and I reckon Tom will stay in that role until Hanley comes back.

throttlefinger

Keeping Webster. Looked good. Really turned it up in 2nd half when team was making push. Not sure if worth blooding when he's just starting to make you money. Would hold trading Webster. Look elsewhere.

I may trade Cutler for Langdon. His engine is taking a hit like Tyson's. Plus need some upgrade cash for Caddy.

Gray

Imply or Kennedy-Harris to Williams
Or
Daisy to crouch?
Please help

InsideInfo

I think people who are trading daisy now are doing a big mistake…he has at least 50k left on his value to go up. And i would probally trade impey as he has gone up for cash and has a higher breakeven this week than JKH

InsideInfo

Thoughts on Mumford to Goldstein or Mumford to Minson (i dont want jacobs or mcevoy) who would you choose?

BeagzBoyz

Hold mummy if you have coverage

Azmataz

Jacobs

Chris

A couple of correctional trades for me this week with a double downgrade next week.
Webster/T.Mitchell to Macrae/Fasolo

Tim

Should I take Cotchins 134 VC or stick wit Ablett C???

Bill

Ablett!

BeagzBoyz

take the 134. not worth the risk for an extra 15 points

Donut_King

extra 60 points

JX20

Gazza loves the G. Last 3 games there 149 v Hawks, 152 v Melb, 155 v Pies. It's his castle.

Tim

Thanks guys

Rosco

Should I start Polec or Ellis? Polec prob higher ceiling but Ellis playing at home.

Bill

Polec!

SCaddict

It's in that flip a coin territory really.

FWIW I'm fielding Polec myself but there was a lot of eeny, meeny, miny, moe going on with that decision. πŸ™‚

Bill

Who to start out of: Langdon, Langford and KOLO?

throttlefinger

Given past scores, I'd say Langdon. Langford and Thumper haven't gone ton yet. Can't see them doing it this round either.

Bill

Thanks Throttle!!

Wattsieesq

Hey mate. I've got you this week in one of the leagues you are in. Good luck

throttlefinger

Same to you, Wattsie! Not looking good so you may have an easy week.

Emma

I will have to pass on Fasolo, will go TMitch to Parker and Webster to Crouch via dpp.

SCaddict

Looks good Emma.

Think it's a smarter move to swap Titch for another premo than a quick cash grab on Fasolo that will likely require another trade or two down the road, along with a Rd8 bye headache to boot.

WombatsFC

Hi Emma, Do you really need to get Crouch this week? Very high probability that he'll be sub and his predicted 50k increase will be a 20k increase. Have another look at your options maybe instead of Parker you can get a genuine Premo in the middle.

Emma

My issue is I have JKH , Impey and Ambrose as F6,7,8. I need to trade webster to crouch for cash to bring in Parker today.

Jn101

Who should I play on field?

Langdon or Webster?

And 3 out of polec, Dunstan, Tyson and crouch

SCaddict

I'd go the first 3 rookie mids especially with the risk that Crouch could conceivably get the green vest on Sunday.

I'd roll with Langdon although unfortunately I will have to field both myself. Was planning to upgrade Webster this week but other trade priorities have come to the fore. Here's hoping he can register at least 50 this round.

WombatsFC

Not Crouch

WombatsFC

I couldn't agree more Jock.I firmly believe that if they had have had footy in Chocolatalia 2,000 years ago they wouldn't have started nailing people to bits of wood on their days off.

The Mullet

I'm in two minds for my last trade this week. My fwd line is Dusty, Dangerfield, Roughy, Zorko, Higgins, Caddy (Rohan, JKH) @70k in the bank.

Option 1- Rohan out for Fasolo in. Fasolo comes onto the field, Caddy to the pine until next week when I trade him out.
Option 2- Daisy out to generate a little extra cash, move Caddy to the mids (means I have to take Aish's 55 emergency score for him) and bring Pav into the forward line.

I'd appreciate input from anyone

dannyyboyy

is it worth chopping tyson for crouch? i think its time to start making some cash for upgrades. i know crouch might cop the vest but i still think it could be worth it.

Scythe

No way Tyson should be cut yet. Will still average 90-95. Could easily get to 450k whilst providing good scoring, with unquestionable JS.

No idea why people are giving him the chop

dannyyboyy

reason being he has the worst BE. and now is the time to start chopping rookies for cash to start upgrading the team to premo players. even tho he is going to average 90-95 thats not the reason he is in my team. he is in there to make me quick cash so i can upgrade to premiums. one thing ive learnt from this game is dont get to attatched to a rookie. because of his high BE it means he will go up a lot slower, while other players are still making more cash quicker. tyson to crouch will net me 210k, aish will be worth about 280k next week so aish to probably gray will net me about another 178k. 210 plus 178 plus 33(in my bank now) = 421k in the bank. that means i can either cull another rookie, maybe to lloyd after he plays his 2 games, or swap a on field rookie, langdon to a swallow or the likes. this is the reason i think its worth chopping tyson for crouch, even if he gets the vest he will be on my bench and i will be on the improve.

Scythe

I see what you're saying. But the reality is, Crouch is likely (by all accounts) to be the sub this week, and, if he is, he won't go up by much if he puts in 20-25 odd.

Tyson at the moment is not averaging much less than a premium, and he can be your slow-burner for a couple of weeks. I would prioritise chopping the likes of Polec (if you have him) over the coming weeks, as they'll appreciate quicker for 1-2 weeks until Tyson's 50 gets out of his BE calculations.

Polec has his bye before Tyson too. Tyson's r10 bye means you should upgrade him at the end of r9, as he will likely be over 400k by then, and he would have given you some healthy scores in the meantime.

Just food for thought, make of it what you will.

dannyyboyy

yeah what your saying makes sense to, but im still of the opinion that i want to start chopping earlier than that. its what i did last year and it seemed to work well, i even wasted a few sideways trades and still had more than enough come the end of the year, 30 trades is way to many in my opinion.

Scythe

Even if Daisy plays, would it be worth chucking Josh Kelly on the field instead?

Pots

Any news on how long T.Mitchell is out? All reports I have found state TBC.
Deciding whether to trade to Pav/Gunston.

Scythe

Even if he is healthy next week, I don't know if he is a walk-up start. Might be made to earn his place through the reserves. I went Roughead for Mitchell. Other good options are Pav (as you mentioned), Zorko if you don't have him, Parker (although I'm not too keen at this price), Westhoff (port have a rough draw though) and Robbie Gray (pod).

I wouldn't go Gunston, probably wont average any more than 85 for the season

Pots

Thanks Scythe. The finger is itchy and have been seriously looking at Pav. Three of next five at PS. Titch to drop, Pav to increase. Will make upgrading Titch harder. I have used 4 trades so far including one this round. Will leave with 25 trades. Have $459,100 to spend.

Scythe

With 459k I don't think you can go past Pav then.

I made the silly, silly mistake of trading Pav out for Zorko after round two. They'll average similar, just a wasted trade as I though Pav was past it. I was wrong. Pav should fetch you at least 95 for the rest of the year.

Just be wary of Ross Lyon's tendency to rest players

Scythe

That all being said, Robbie Gray (444k) is not a bad option. Averaging 95, has averaged 90+ before, and seems to be over his injuries. Round 9 bye is helpful too.

Only issue is, (as I mentioned earlier) Port's draw. Eagles, Cats, Giants, Dockers, Hawks next 5. Three of those are in Adelaide though. Only in 2% of teams

Scythe

Gee I'll take the biscuits on the Robbie Gray call after that performance!

canman1306

I went Parker he has looked great so far

Brendan

Who should i play on field in my backline?
Tom Langdon or Luke McDonald?
I have been going Langdon for the past few weeks

Scythe

Tough one, but I'd lean towards McDonald. Just think he is the better player

mitch's magicians

Pav for Dustbin next week for sure.

glenn

Dustbin is the most over rated player in sc and the AFL. Year in, year out. Can never understand why I pick him. Any comments

medadsson

Bordering on overrated. Although he usually averages around 100. Frustrating player and does tend to fade right out of games. While we are on the subject of over rated what do you think about Dangerfield? Spewing I picked him at his pre season price. To me, this year for Dangerfield is looking like one of those, "I am leaving the club at the end of the year anyway" years! Wouldn't mind betting he goes.

WombatsFC

Top of the over rated list this year is Boomarrggh.

rollercoaster

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE PROVIDE A LINK TO THE FINAL TEAMS INCLUDING BENCHES.

Its suaturday, the games are about to start and the AFL website still has all the teams with 7 on the bench.

Please wheres there a link to lists with interchanges and emergencies that are updated.

Thanks in advance

Ocker
GarryOwen

Mitchell > Parker
Daisy > Crouch

Filthy as I had Parker all pre-season and changed last minute so this is the excuse I need to bring him back as Mitch has been pooh.

I'm not sure Daisy is 100% fit with that should and with the higher BE, the time is right to cut my losses here and I think Crouch will be of similar SC quality as Ellis, Dunstan Ellis etc.. and his JS is pretty strong so happy to take the cash.

Anyone have any other options other than the above…

Cheers

GarryOwen

Sputnik

RE Dustin Martin- the only reason people pick Dustin martin in their teams is because he always has and always will get Dustbin stats. In the real world dustin martin is a flog and isnt that great a footballer.

As always he waits til the game is over and then gets stats. Thursday perfect example like every other game he plays. When the margin is close Dustin disappears then lo and behold Richmond put the game away and here comes dusty. Pathetic, boring and so repetitive to watch. same old same old with dusty.

And he doesnt love richmond or the richmond jumper its quite obvious to see. Until tht tigers have the balls to drop dustin to the VFL for a week this is going to go on and on and on. He's lazy with a bad attitude and thats it.

Derek

I agree. But at the start of the season there wasnt much choice in forward line. Had to have him

Your wrong

Dustin kicked the sealer against the blues mate! Margin was only 12!!

Mattyboy

Time to go Daisy Thomas. Can downgrade to Crouch but worried about a vest and rd 8 bye. Have the cash to go to Macrae or Ollie, thinking Ollie for points and to help through the byes. Absolutely love the big quadzilla fella…thoughts community?

rollercoaster

Can I ask why people care about the bye rounds?

Is is for overall only or the leagues?

I am going for league wins and rather than spreading players across 3 weeks I am sabotaging round 8 and am happy to lose it because my team will most likely win rounds 9 and 10. Rather guarentee winning 2 bye rounds than risking all 3.

I have most of my team out round 8-
Pendles, GAJ, Beams, Jelwood, Cotchin, Jaensch, Martin, Swallow, Crouch, Jacobs, LMac, Langdon, M Wright, Fasolo, Bartel, and next week bringing in Danger and Swanny.

My team will have donuts round 8 but then hopefully theres late outs and many donuts for all other teams round 9 and 10.

What are others doing?

medadsson

Agreed, I am only bothered with leagues. Who wants to be an April premier anyway πŸ™‚

Wes

I'm with you two! For exact same reasons…

Cyril

Fallen premiums cloke and swan dominating this game

WombatsFC

Fasolo is really turning it on too. Everybody should have by now anyway so he wont help me now that Boomaaarrrggh is my POD premo. Should've downgraded him to Cloke or swan

Scythe

Fasolo you magnificent bastard!

Wattsieesq

+1 on that. Magic.

dannyyboyy

fasolo for rohan was my first trade this week, was lookin at it last week and wanted to give him one more week to prove and prove he did! 27 trades left still plenty in the bank

Cyril

Big game = boomer missing again.

Shinboner

Absolutely soft, no-touch, bruise-free footy. Embarrassing stuff. Disgraceful. Boomer either turning it over or putting another bloke under the pump (improved as game went on). Lindsay Thomas doesn't want to get his jumper dirty. Currie is completely immobile – terrible decision by Brad Scott. Everyone is scared of Cloke. No run, no creativity, no balls. Shanked kicks, wasted opportunities. We're not Carlton. Ridiculous!

Emma

I picked north what the hell pathetic performance they played like the blues (I am blues supporter :()

WombatsFC

My condolences shinboner; as a blues supporter I know how painful it is to see players choose not to make the contest. I can't help but think that is what happens when recruiters prioritise tall players who can run fast in preference to blokes who can play footy. Diesel Williams is a perfect example of a star footballer who was originally sent back to the country (by Carlton) for not being an athlete. In todays system he wouldn't even get to draft camp.

Cyril

Would he be exposed in today’s footy though. Those types of players aren’t really around any more

WombatsFC

Yes at 50y.o. he might struggle but as a 20y.o. he wouldn't have a problem.

rollercoaster

so whats new shinboner? did you really think your list is top 4 or top 6? i mean really? no of course not. therefore you can only hope to be one of 6 teams fighting for 7th and 8th place. Realities a nasty B!t%h!

Shinboner

Did you watch our spirited performance against Sydney last week? The same Sydney who are defeating Fremantle right now? Now, THAT, was the sort of effort you want to see. I don't mind seeing a spirited defeat. But that was unacceptable. Only a handful of players put in a four-quarter shift.

And just for the record, yes, I do believe we have a top 6 list. The best full-back in the league bar none, a potential AA ruckman, a key forward who has competed in the Coleman for much of the last few years and a core midfield group of Swallow, NDS, Cunnington, Wells and Ziebell. Not a bad setup.

throttlefinger

Was truly mindboggling watching them, Shinboner. Not the team who played the week before. Sticking with Nahas would've been the smarter move (from SC standpoint glad he didn't as Currie was my R2). Only one looking like he was trying to give it an honest go was Cunnington. Even he looked like a shade of his former self.

Give some credit to the Pies (hate saying that). They were more focused and intense. Never stopped the pressure or attack. And your boys will bounce back. Too much talent to lay down.

Shinboner

Yep, fair play to the Pies. Great defensive pressure across the entirety of the game. Good signs from the younger Magpies too. We're lucky they didn't have their kicking boots on.

SCaddict

A completely different team to the one that rolled my Swannies last weekend.

The ups and downs of AFL footy. Will have a tough rebound test at Freo next week too.

Mark

Hey community,
should i trade out Bernie Vince this week or hold? I have 25 trades left

Emma

Great not trading in Fasolo is looking brilliant, Come on Parker and Buddy πŸ™

Sputnik

Lucky you dont have Ellis on the field. Or crap players like Watson, Merrett, Wingard and Martin destroying your team πŸ™

Aidan

Which three of the five should I start on the field?
Polec, Dunstan, Tyson, X.Ellis, J.Kelly

Aaron

Tyson

Shinboner

Dunstan, Polec and a toss-up between Tyson (opponents beginning to lock down on him now) and Kelly. Probably leaning towards Kelly, considering the Crows' injury-affected midfield.

rollercoaster

do yourself a favour- DO NOT start tyson. he wont score over 80 anymore. he as hit the wall already.

Aaron

Community, do we bring in Dane Swan next week? Bargain priced but does have the round 8 bye.

Cyril

Or cloke at the cheap price?

@klavo25

9/800 wrapt about getting on flying solo 5 mins before lockout for clurey πŸ™‚

MightyDonsFC

Not getting swan, already have Pendles and beams in my mids. Will look at Goddard and Griffen

Nick

Hey everyone

Would like to no your thoughts on Dane Rampe from Sydney. Got 111 today and have been watching his progress seems like he could be a good prospect. I have 400k in the bank and he is. Only 330k and is he has been getting scores around 70 and got 103 last week so he could be a good trade for someone like Langdon or Webster who are not proforming to well would love to know your thoughts

Thanks

MightyDonsFC

Do you think he will be in the top 15 defenders by the end of the year?

Nick

Are you talking about Rampe

Nick

Yeah it’s a possibility I reckon because he is cheaper than players who are 500k he is worth it. I think an average of 85-90 which is better than someone like Langdon

MightyDonsFC

Don't see him averaging that, I think if you bring him in you will just end up moving him on so I'd advise against it.

Nick

Thanks for advice just another quick question I have 400k in the bank I want to trade out Langdon for someone like Mitchell or should I get someone like jeansch about 150k cheaper and get rid of daisy for someone like macrae if rhinos plays a bad game. Even maybe a Dane swan. Thinking if daisy plays a good game the. I might hold and wait for someone like griffin or swan at a cheaper price thanks for your advice much appreciated

MightyDonsFC

I'd wait to get rid of daisy but I think you've missed the macrae boat, maybe for a griffen or Goddard. I can justify langdon to jaensch, also look at adcock.

MightyDonsFC

Kept jimmy webster…on the bench ;(

throttlefinger

Man that's rough, MD. Got lucky and looped him with Cameron. Hope he can keep 80+ average. Give us a little love for sticking fat with him, right?

Donut_King

Same

MightyDonsFC

Only needs 13 disposals to get around the 80-90 mark with his de, don't get why people were moving him on

rollercoaster

hahaha carnage again- and still people are averaging over 2300!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lets see- who have we got this week?

Crappy rookies- langdon, lmac, taylor, dunstan, xellis, impey, lloyd, aish,

then your other pitiful players- cornes, wines, wingard, watson, merrett, sselwood, martin, mthomas,

and sooo many more. I can sense many fantasy sides will be ghost ships that wont be logging in any more.

plus subs are destroying these fantasy games now. somehow theyre gonna have to bring in a rule where 2 lowest scoring players scores get dropped coz there aint no skill in chosing your line up- its all luck.

or just make every round like bye round and only have top 18 scoring players scores count.

tension head

I like it. I like it alot. while we on the subject of improvement. I think we should all have one wildcard we can play through out the year. meaning when we decide to use our wildcard we can make as many trades as we like for that round. so if u wanna blow 10 of your 30 trades in one week its up to you. anything that adds another element of strategy is a good thing imo

Andrew

I agree with subs rule I had 4 players subbed out this week and score was decimated. is that a record? Is there any way you can use an emergency if they score higher than a subbed out player? I thought matt Thomas being subbed out was ridiculous.

crabb

Community, can't decide, Daisy or Tyson on field?

Devan

Isn’t daisy injured? Either way I would play Tyson

crabb

Not sure, might be. On the team sheet though.

Just figured he's either been smacked around by Mick and will turn up with a 100+ game, or he will be slapped the vest by Mick in the hope of him working harder to gain a starting spot. If there's even suspicion of the later, i'm inclined to go Tyson.

Jake

take derickx score of 39 or trade mummy to jacobs and make 100k

i have 24 trades left

Donut_King

Jacobs

Gold Rush

Thanks for the Churros X. Ellis.

Nick

What happened to Ellis why did he only score 2

throttlefinger

Twisted his ankle on a three leaf clover.

Rescued Pieman

Lol throttle. Can’t believe he made it to round 5. That sort of injury for Ellis means 2 seasons probably

tension head

any idea how long he’ll be out?

CashCows

Long enough for me to go whooshka…your gone!

Gold Rush

Me too, don't care how long he is out for as his services are now considered surplus to requirements.

CashCows

can't believe nicnats 107….1430 from 14 with capt gaz still to come predicting 2400…come on!!!

Cameron

Anyone taking Pendleburys 128?

HiltonKid

Who are people bringing in this round??

MightyDonsFC

Cripps/Robertson and Lloyd for Dunstan and McDonut

Leighroy

Ellis and Tyson out, flipper and r8 prem in

HiltonKid

Anyone on the bubble who is a must get this round???

Donut_King

Crouch

HiltonKid

Already got Crouch anyone else?!?!

Rescued Pieman

Wait till next week Robertson & cutler on the bubble. Good JS

HiltonKid

Had Robertson sitting on my bench all through pre-season and put him on field and got 71 RDT points for me pretty happy…..

Rescued Pieman

Maybe Lloyd & cutler next week. Great patience with Robertson. Trade saved

Shinboner

Same here. Forgot why I decided to keep him.

Rescued Pieman

985 from 12. Spuds galore. Could be back in the psych ward soon! Take Beams score or go with GAJ?

Leighroy

I would go with Ablett

Dools

Go with GAJ mate rips it apart at the G

Dave

Trade or hold mummy?

SCaddict

I'd go Sauce myself but then again I would say that starting Rd1 with him.

Has proven to be quite durable in recent seasons and Mummy's return date is perhaps a little cloudy. Those knees have been an ongoing problem for him.

HiltonKid

Which two should I trade this week let me know!!!!

Hanley for Joel Selwood (Hanley on mid Bench)

Enright for Birchall or Cale Hooker (Which one) ( Someone else and who) Have got Mitchell,Swallow,Jaensch, Mcdonald and Mc Veigh!

Other option!!!

Higgins to Pav (Should I keep higgins)

Merret to Chapman or Parker

Please let me know!!!

Any other ideas

Cheers

Brad

Why do you want to trade Enright?

HiltonKid

Injury problems and not performing….

MightyDonsFC

Hanley trade seems good, if enright still has injury problems then I'd trade him to birchall, wouldn't trade Higgins or merrett just yet.

Brad

Essendon lost! πŸ™‚

MightyDonsFC

Don't blame the boys, battled gastro and the flu all week on top of a six day turnaround. Anyways freo lost too so it's pretty obvious that the previous game had an influence on this one.

Brad

Go swans!!!! Haha I feel ya

Brad

Your not saying that the swans won because freo weren't at their best! It was the bystander contested game I've seen this year so far!

Brad

Best*

MightyDonsFC

Just saying both looked tired from the previous game, although I didn't watch much of the Sydney freo game

Leighroy

Trading enright is a sideways trade. I try an avoid these trades, when you selected enright you knew what you were going to get. Other then his injury against brisbane his delivered what is expected from him

Donut_King

Anyone else counting on Gaz firing out a 400?

Rescued Pieman

Yep. Hope he has 70 possies & kicks 12, by half time

SCaddict

Just so long as he puts on a typical Gaz showing and isn't a late withdrawl I'll be happy enough.

Have Ellis sitting on the pine with a big fat E and just 2pts in his pocket!

Dools

Same here SCaddict, I missed the call but the rumour mill is spiting out calf injury for a whopping 2 Points

WombatsFC

Ankle was getting strapped pretty heavily before they decided to sub him. Apparently he tripped over the 50m arc.

Dools

I was told he stepped on the field and wandered thru the banner and that's when it all fell apart! at least he is not decapitated but a score of 2 makes me think there are plenty out there who will gladly raffle off the rights to decapitate him ….Sad, At least he won't lose to much value but he is the Next Sacrificial lamb on the KrakenKats Alter….along with Dustbin Dunstan So next week its on like Donkey Kong

Bundybear

LOL only 400? I need him to score at least 1200 points

MightyDonsFC

1520/15 captain dependlebury played. Still got swallow, jaensch, smurph, Libba, birchall, bartel and danger to come.

GOSWANNNNNNNIES

Essendon lost πŸ™‚

MightyDonsFC

Chocolate will numb the pain

Rescued Pieman

Ellis 2. That’s a Turd burger with the lot. I feel for anyone who had him on the ground. Except my league opponents. I hear he tripped on a rogue blade of grass. You can’t polish a turd.

Derek

I traded him onto the field in place of Dunstan 10 mins before the game started. That hurt.

Sputnik

LOL

Dogs

So much spud right now, 1155from 14 played.

7 have scored 99 or higher

7 have scored 61 or lower

JX20

If only Jack Billings wasn’t at that awkward pick 3 price! Oozes class and unfortunately on the bubble after round 1 sub score too.

Cyril

How much will Ellis price be affected by this round?

WombatsFC

His b.e was only 11 so not much

SCaddict

Just a few thousand at most.

Scythe

Will take credit for my Robbie Gray call from yesterday. In the most humble way possible, of course!

πŸ˜‰

Scythe

Shame I didn't have the plums to bring him in though

MightyDonsFC

Been talking him up since round 3, was always gonna go big with no monfries and Wingard still hurt

Scythe

1065/11, captain and a fair amount of premo's to come.

Cotchin, Fasolo, McVeigh, Beams, Sandilands, Zorko, Polec all ticks so far.

Langdon, McDonald, Dunstan on field hurts a bit, but there's always going to be some negatives.

Jason

Anyone know if Dale Thomas is playing today ? ….Have heard he is in doubt …..

I have Ellis as (E) and he scored a 2 ….. Thinking i might have to swap Thomas for Crouch seeing they start before the teams are finalised for the doggies v blues game …..

Marcus J

1082 / 12 captain on GAJ
matt thomas and dunstan let me down, they be close to harvesting soon

thank god i got fasolo in

SCaddict

Well Matty Crouch aint the sub this week so some us can pull the trigger on him a little more comfortably now.

Only wish I traded Eliis for him but hindsight is a wonderful thing.

dannyyboyy

haha so do we all with ellis, im still tossing up trading tyson for crouch for the cash but gettin pretty close to the game now if im still iffy ill hold, thoughts? its been drivin me bonkers

favalinko

depends on your $ needs, the bye rounds are a comin. Any other cows you can cull

dannyyboyy

lock out i held

Derek

I enjoyed the game yesterday, had franklin, Pav, Kennedy and sandi.

Derek

Cotchin 134 or go Ablett as C?

favalinko

I would take the 134 to the bank

The benchmark!

I’m in the same vote. Ill should stick with cotchin but my balls are too big not to take on a left against Melbourne.

The benchmark!

To take on ablett against Melbourne *

The benchmark!

Got to risk it to get the biscuit and it payed off πŸ™‚ looking at a mammoth score

Shinboner

Take the 134.

Derek

I went with Gazza.

Rescued Pieman

To those that traded Danger in the last few weeks. Oops oops oops. 101 at half time suggests that was very very silly

David

Hey community,
by the time i woke up today i missed the lockout to bring Matt Crouch in. Should i get him in next week, even though he has the round 8 bye, or have i missed the boat with him?

Graham

Same here but through my own stupidity not sleep!
Would love to hear people's thoughts on this as I'm now looking at either Crouch after his price rise or Robertson/Cripps/Gray on the bubble and with better bye rounds (leaning towards the latter)

Dools

DangerMouse playing like a rampaging Bull 5 Goals early in the Third and 18 possies . At Last some one in the Fwds repaying faith

Shinboner

If the score review system fails to overrule that clear Suns deflection, then it has no use in this game. Get rid of it. Waste of time.

Rescued Pieman

Couldn’t agree more. Shocking decision

Sputnik

yeah it seems the camera for goalline reviews mounted at richmond station is just a bit too far away πŸ™‚

MightyDonsFC

Hahaha those who traded out danger, big mistake

piewood1

1204/13 – thank you Paddy Danger for softening the blow in what looks like another carnage round.

Rescued Pieman

Imagine how the 1000’s who traded him feel. Wish I had him as captain. Anyone that did well done

Kristofor

Been waiting on a score like that from Danger. Glad I held him.

SCaddict

Yes I think it was the reason many of us started with him to feast on the Crows rounds 4-7, even though we perhaps expected a slow start in the first 3 rounds.

Derek

Crouch injury, anyone hear how bad it is?

SCaddict

Don't think it's too much to worry about. Looked like bit of a strain or cramp. Hopefully it was one of those precautionary red vests.

Will have to wait for confirmation from a medical report though.

Sarah

Last vision I saw he was getting a rub down from the physio so it doesn't look to be a strain, more a cramp.

Caz

Hey guys thoughts on cale hooker from the dons, 4 tons out of 5 games.

Kev

Upgrade target. Assured role
