PODCAST: Round 7 Community Night podcast

Published by Jock on

Supercoach 2014 preseason podcast

Plenty of outs community!

And plenty of issues to pick through as a community as we plow head first into a big arse weekend of the game that we love.

Buddy, Fasolo, Hanley, Robbie Gray, Will Langford and Lukey Dunstan head the lists of outs – as some of us look to insert some premium silk into our midfields.

Lets rips right into it folks and lets rip the pre round issues apart like wild pigs in the comments.

Barron Von Crow pays a visit this week – click here to have a gander at the planner he mentions in this week’s show.

* Note – I say in the show that Robbie Gray is OUT. He isn’t – its Sam Gray. My apologies. I might have Alzheimers disease but at least I don’t have Alzheimers disease



BCHawks · 01/05/2014 at 21:54

Can't wait to listen to this thanks Jock!

    jockreynolds · 01/05/2014 at 21:57

    Very welcome BC! Hope the podcast lifts you just that little bit closer to fantasy supermacy mate

Tom · 01/05/2014 at 21:56

the carnage has already begun

Luke · 01/05/2014 at 22:03

Jock what are your thoughts on hallahan and bringing in some of the one week old price rise rookies such as cutler or Robertson, is there still enough value

Sleepy · 01/05/2014 at 22:04

Hi Jock I think you will find it is Sam Gray out, not Robbie. Cheers Ol' Mate

    jockreynolds · 01/05/2014 at 22:39

    Ahhhhh stuff me you're right mate. Just put a little note up in the show notes. Im gettin old! Thanks for the heads up

      Ocker · 03/05/2014 at 03:49

      You are only as old as the woman you feel Jock.


Eli · 01/05/2014 at 22:09

So Keen for the podcast Jock!!!
I Love the work keep up the good stuff
Nothing makes me happier then tuning in each week,
Highlight of my week!

Will · 01/05/2014 at 22:14

Alright, Great Podcast Jock and community. I'm using two trades this week which consist of Dunstan – Hallahan or O'Rourke and then Langford for Premium Backman. I can easily afford anyone in the backline so everyone's an option. The problem is, I don't know who. I'm thinking Mcveigh, Bartel, Hibberd or Simpson. Who am I going with lads?

    GarglesnarfFC · 02/05/2014 at 06:44

    McVeigh or Hibberd for mine

@johnson_tragic · 01/05/2014 at 22:15

This year is has been a tough one but nothing better than Jock's wisdom to guide us back on track.

Nick · 01/05/2014 at 22:21

Hey jock got fasolo in my forward line thinking putting him on the bench and getting Kennedy Harris on the ground or I have 240 k upgrade fasolo to Parker or pavlich or I can upgrade Dunstan to someone like Watson or downgrade Dunstan to halyhan and get even more case

    Dom · 01/05/2014 at 22:47

    Depends on how you're going in the league, if you need more wins go for the upgrade and if you're in the top 5, downgrade even more

      Nick · 01/05/2014 at 22:51

      Ok thanks i reckon hold on fasolo get some more cash from him and then upgrade him to someone like Parker or pav licht just I got to think about th byes cause rounds 8 and 9 I am sitting on 18 for each so my trades will be important

Todd · 01/05/2014 at 22:28

Hey community, who is the best forward premium to bring in for buddy this week and also should I get Priddis or Watson in my team

    Tom · 02/05/2014 at 07:14


Dools · 01/05/2014 at 22:35

Has this started yet or has my computer died?_

MightyDonsFC · 01/05/2014 at 22:35

G'day fellas, back with my midfield edition of TATh. None of them will be your top tier of players, but should push the elite bracket. Wanted to include ward but Crimmo already covered him.

Brad Ebert: $549,600, Avg. 111.3, BE 105, HS 129 LS 87 Bye rd 9
Accumulates disposals, kicks goals, is a tackling machine, comes 3rd man in for hitouts and plays for a team in Adelaide. Sound like someone most of us have? Brad Ebert has started the year in fine form, averaging 24.8 disposals, just under a goal a game, 3.5 clearances, 6.5 tackles, 5.1 I50's and just under 2 hitouts. He is never likely to attract a tag due to Hartlett, Boak and Wines also tearing it up in the Port Adelaide midfield and likes to kick rather than handball. Another major attribute for Ebert is his durability. 2010 22 games 2011 21 games 2012 22 games 2013 22 games. Since his move to Port Ebert has flourished and looms as a brilliant POD for your team (owned by 1,622 teams).

Predicted average: Late 100's

Luke Shuey: $523,400, Avg. 105.8, BE 108, HS 137 LS 75 (subbed off) Bye rd 9
Not gonna hide it, I'm a massive fan of Shuey. He's quick, wins a lot of contested ball, good at tackles and clearances and kicks goals. Take out his sub affected game he's averaging 114 sc points. With it he's averaging 24 disposals, 3.2 tackles, 6 clearances and 4.8 I50's per game. Normally when teams play the Eagles, the tag goes to Gaff, so that shouldn't be too much of a problem. Has Cox, Natanui and Priddis feeding him and has got 28 disposals in his past two games. The only knock I have on Shuey is that he's had an easy draw, so the onus is on him to keep it up.

Predicted average: Low 100's

Jaeger O'Meara: $501,500, Avg. 104.7, BE 99, HS 129 LS 75 Bye rd 9
Touted by many as the next big thing, Jaegar has started the season in fine fantasy form. Has established himself in the midfield with Gaz and Prestia and should keep improving throughout the year. So far has averaged 21.1 disposals, half a goal, 7 tackles, 4.3 clearances, 5.2 I50's. Taggers won't go near him because of Gaz, Prestia and Swallow. Jaegar will only increase his average as the year goes on. Another one of those beauties that kick instead of handball, played 2 hard games 1medium and 3 easy ones to kick off 2014. Hasn't succumbed to 2nd year blues, actually he's done quite the opposite, should be a nice POD coming out of the byes and I'll be having a good look at him.

Predicted average: Mid 100's

I'll try to get the forwards edition up a couple hours before the Carlton Collingwood game.

    jockreynolds · 01/05/2014 at 22:38


    Tman · 01/05/2014 at 23:04

    Good work mate. Much appreciated. Tell u wat though jaegar maybe had the better of wines last year, but wineys got him covered so far in 2014.

    throttlefinger · 02/05/2014 at 03:08

    Really nice MD. You're killing it today, my man!

    Just a couple niggling points: Jaegar is a R8 bye. And "late 100s" I assume you mean "low". Would be awesome if Ebert's points showed up tardy after the round to push my score higher!

      MightyDonsFC · 02/05/2014 at 06:36

      Thanks TF. Just saw now that I listed jaegar as rd 9, my bad. When I say late 100's I mean 107-109 and mid 100's 104-106.

        throttlefinger · 02/05/2014 at 07:45

        I figured that, my man. Was just twisting your tit.

        Again, magnificent job. Your reports have been rocking like Manowar.

        matt · 02/05/2014 at 10:29

        i reckon you mightydons should ask jock for a job

    Jambo · 02/05/2014 at 13:11

    Great stuff indeed. What about Robbie Gray? He is in career-best form and a mid-fwd swinger. Another one to consider.

canman1306 · 01/05/2014 at 22:39

Simpson or Hibberd
Simpson supports my byes

    throttlefinger · 02/05/2014 at 07:46

    Support your byes. Make the future canman happy.

    Got to do the same myself. Can't bring in Hibberd now so Simpson will be next round.

Jesse · 01/05/2014 at 22:41

Majestic as usual jock great podcast

Dom · 01/05/2014 at 22:41

Is Matty Wright someone to keep or upgrade?

    Bruce · 02/05/2014 at 00:22


    Jambo · 02/05/2014 at 13:13

    Upgrade. Matty Wright, I think has peaked SuperCoach-wise. Maybe upgrade to either Riewoldt or a premium midfielder (bye in rd 10), depending on your structure.

canman1306 · 01/05/2014 at 22:42

Wheres TAT Lately?

Gary · 01/05/2014 at 22:47

Defenders: Swallow, Mitchell, Suckling, Langdon
McDonald, Enright, (Webster, Georgiou)
Midfielders: Ablett, Pendlebury, D.Beams, Dangerfield, Polec,
Tyson, M.Thomas, J.Kelly, (Dunstan, Robertson)
Rucks: Sandilands, Mumford
(Currie, Thurlow)
Forwards: Zorko, Parker, Pavlich, Martin
Higgins, JKH, (Fasolo, Lloyd)

I've got $351,500 in the war chest. I'm happy to cop a donut in the rucks. I'm thinking of downgrading Suckling to Cutler.

Any suggestions would be appreciated

    Kev · 02/05/2014 at 10:11

    Your mids are looking very light on, Gary. I'd consider upgrading one of Thomas or Tyson. Or you could upgrade Higgins, swing Danger forward and grab a mid. A lot of cheap mid options e.g. Watson, Cotchin, Shuey etc

      Gary · 02/05/2014 at 10:24

      Upgrade Higgins to Ward & Suckling to Cutler?

    Jambo · 02/05/2014 at 13:19

    Defenders and Midfielders are quite weak. Please consider trading Langdon and M. Thomas. Bring in two premium defenders and swing Mitchell into your midfield.

Tim · 01/05/2014 at 22:53

How long is Fasolo out for?

    Gab · 01/05/2014 at 22:55

    this week plus his bye next round

      Tim · 01/05/2014 at 23:07


Tman · 01/05/2014 at 22:58

YEAYYY cant wait to listen to podcast. Get a chance in the next hour.

Holy molee … the outs have got me a spot of bother. A definite spanner in the works for my bye round trade plans.

Desperate for some help here.non playing players below.

def: hanley, grifith and langford

mids: ellis

ruck: mummy, hickey currie

forwards: mitchell and ambrose bith emmergencies.

Dont know where to start now. Def and ruck might be the go. Hanleys missed too many weeks already. Not keen on keeping him. We all know how carry mummy for a week or two went.

my bye outs are rd 10 heavy at the moment. Jock/community please help.

Michael · 01/05/2014 at 23:05

Thoughts on these trades
Def A.Georgiou to T.Cutler and J.Impey to J.Billings?

Any other suggestions??

    Rocksta · 01/05/2014 at 23:11

    Waste of Trades Michael IMO.

    Trading from Rookie to Rookie should only be done for significant cash generation.

    For Example, if you traded Dunstan down to a Hallahan or O’Rourke, you would generate almost $200k to use for upgrades in other areas.

      Dools · 01/05/2014 at 23:41

      Hi Micheal A . Georgiou is a bench cover player keep. Good JS and is improving not score wise but is a fixture down back KEEP

        throttlefinger · 02/05/2014 at 03:14

        Agree with the esteemed Dools.

        Similar if you have JKH in your forward line. Let him earn on the pine. He's cover. When he gets nice and plump downgrade for some moola and another bench cover.

    GarglesnarfFC · 02/05/2014 at 09:13

    I tend to agree with everyone else on this, dont blow trades on this type of sideways stuff. If Cutler was about to go up $60k then maybe.

    This week is about either generating cash prior to round 9 or upgrading to a fallen premium with cash already generated.

teambob · 01/05/2014 at 23:13

did you mean sam grey? i thought ports only change was sam grey out for monfries? and if robbie grey IS out, that throws yet another spanner in the works of my team… need more then bog to cover these holes!

    teambob · 01/05/2014 at 23:20

    i need to learn to read the fine print. at least thats one less problem to worry about.

      Dools · 01/05/2014 at 23:26

      Mate your good Sam is out not Robbie

Marty · 01/05/2014 at 23:17

Just traded fas for Petrie
And Tyson for murphy

Is this a mistake or am I heading in the right direction I'm planning to trade out some rookies later to up grade my back line
Def: bartel janesch mcveigh Mitchell suckling klod
Mid: ablett pendels cotchin dangerfield polec aish robertson
Ruck: sandy Jacobs
Fwd: roughy zorko Parker Martin Petrie taylor

Suggestions would be greatly appreciated….

    rob · 02/05/2014 at 19:43

    Same trade ins.. as me leys hope petrie n murphy are good picks.. I think there is great value in both.. I went dunstan-murph a lil reluctantly as im not a huge Murphy fan. N impey to dunstan. Happy I didnt jump on fasolo even tho he was looking good. Gomna be an interesting weekend.

Harry · 01/05/2014 at 23:39

Anyone heard the word (other than the bird….) on Hickey? I see a tweet from Fantasy Footy saying he's out for 6-8 weeks but the Saints website says he'll be tested next week. I can't find anything to corroborate 6-8 weeks online….. unless anyone knows anything?

    Gilly · 02/05/2014 at 06:42

    someone said earlier that on the Saints web site he was listed as 6-8 weeks but that was removed and the test next week put up instead

Captain joc · 01/05/2014 at 23:47

So my planned trades were

Dunstan to Watson

McDonald to ebert via langdons dpp

But Mitchell not being named( I’m happy to loophole Taylor and JKH) Langford being out and Matt Thomas back

But If I do the above trades I would be stuck with cutler( chance of being sub) or georgiou score( not scoring well)

Comments appreciated

I have 516k in the bank

I could trade out Langford and Thomas for Watson and ebert or maybe just a backman?

    chandanrajdb · 02/05/2014 at 08:31

    Hi Captain,

    I am in the same boat mate…..Do we hold on to trades or do just one trade and bring in either premo DEF or MID not sure…….Premo Def i am thinking of is Hibberd and Premo MID I am thinking of is Watson…by trading out L Dunston…..and definitely 1 trade i am thinking of…..and hoping Langford will be back next week…..if not then there will be some issues of getting 18 on field players……Just not sure what to do…..

    And yes I am ranked well enough and I am keeping my hopes of going for the overall glory alive at the moment…..but one bad trade will stuff it up…..lack of experience in SC is killing me…..there are so many things in my mind right now especially regarding bringing in the Essendon players (ASADA report, infraction notice to players etc etc…..)

    I have got $557k in the bank and have got 22 trades left……not so sure what do I do…..need some strong advice from the community in regards to going forward in this competition……


      The Ranger · 02/05/2014 at 10:56

      I'm in only my third year of playing this game mate but what little experience I have tells me that if you're not sure about trading…don't. However, if you're in a good pos overall you've got to concentrate on getting 18 players on the park thru the byes. And yep, I'm feeling the same way about the Essendon players. Bit wary of them at the moment….
      Good luck fella!

      Rocksta · 02/05/2014 at 11:15

      Hi Raj.

      I've only made 1 trade this week……….Dunstan to Watson. Still leaves me with around $65K in the bank.

      I know what you are saying about Essendon players but I don't think anybody can afford to worry about that.

      Trade to complement your structures, and around the byes. That's all any of us can really control.

        Captain joc · 02/05/2014 at 12:46

        Hey raj I don’t think they would sanction any ease don players till after the season
        Yeah I’m in the top 1,000 so I wanna keep up my ranking I was thinking 2 upgrades so that I can gain ground on people higher than me
        I’m gonna trade Langford as I will need him to play next week and I was thinking of trading Matt Thomas just to get the money to bring in ebert n Watson

BeagzBoyz · 02/05/2014 at 00:37

Heading into round 7 with a team that's starting to get close to the full premium i'm aiming for. I've just gone Luke i'm all Dunstan —> Mitch "hold my hand" Hallahan Fassolo —>; Doll house And the team's looking like this with 21 trades remaining: Hibberd, Bartel, McVeigh, Mitchell, Laidler, Suckling (Maccas, Clurey) Ablett, Beams, JPK, Fyfe, Aish, Langdon, Bennel (hallahan, Robertson) Sandi, Mummy (currie, smith) Danger, Parker, Westhoff, Roughead, Kennedy, Dahlhaus (Impey, ambrose) Thoughts? I may have shot myself in the foot by not trading out mumford but I couldn't justify trading him out when I know we'll all be panicking to get him back in once he starts pumping out the 120's in a couple of weeks.

wolfey · 02/05/2014 at 01:01

Well the Supercoach Gods have thrown another challenge at me this week with Hanley and Fasolo both OUT.

I have 600,000 in the cap to spend and can do 1 of 2 things.

1/ Improve my forward line to bring in Cyril for Rohan and Trade Dunstan out for Mcveigh allowing Mid/Def swing set.

2/ Hope I can hold off until the byes and then bring in premo's such as Pendles Watson then for cashcows/mid pricers.

things to consider:

I sit between 9-12 on my Ladders

My forward line is weak with JKH at F4 Impey at F5 and Lloyd at F6 however Dangerfield Martin and Parker are in their as well

-Cyril would boost my forward line no doubt but will he have more of an effect than what Pendleburry will have in a couple of rounds??? The joy of supercoach! hahahah.

Thank you to anyone who gives me some feedback

    Captain joc · 02/05/2014 at 01:06

    Mate you gotta look at the points difference between who you have on field and who your thinking of bringing in if def do a trade in the fwd line and I like the mcveigh trade swing Hanley into Mids then?

      wolfey · 02/05/2014 at 09:35

      So do you think I hold on for the byes? or grab McVeigh and leave Cyril????

        Captain joc · 02/05/2014 at 12:41

        Well I’d grab a fwd for sure mcveigh is a good player so do both trades

shallots · 02/05/2014 at 02:36

ohh welll- goodbye to SC for me for this year. My mate was saying it is all about luck and skill and at first didnt believe him but now i DO… it is all luck.

From playing last week with a full team to this week with 30% of my team dropped. And that comes down to bad luck- not bad skill. But anyway I know heaps have dropped off fantasy games this year and I am now done too. Seeya later all.

PS My team this week- OUT – Fasolo, Langford, Hickey, Dunstan, Hanley, Gray, Franklin, Gleeson, Griffiths, Titch, Mummy, Boyd and with big chance of LMac, JKH, Taylor, Crouch and Suckling being vested I CANNER BEEF HOOKED ANYMORE> goodluck all

    Remy · 02/05/2014 at 06:29

    You're jocking?!

    GeneralSoreness · 02/05/2014 at 12:20

    Does your mate think that Poker is luck as well?

    SC has elements of luck but at the end of the day its has more to do with pre season research and what you do with the cards your dealt during the season that makes the difference.

    For a game that is as you say "just luck" there must be some really "lucky" people out there as they keep finishing at or near the top!

    Whilst I can see that you are taking a massive hit this week, next week might deal you a different hand! Keep your hand in the game and Ante up!

    I can see from your outs list that you will have at least 2 donuts, make 2 trades then you have a full team, might not be the premo team but is a team nonetheless.

Remy · 02/05/2014 at 06:52

Hi everyone, I'd love some help with these trade options:
Buddy~Wingard/Dahlhaus/Goodes (who's already lost 40k)
And Yarran~???
Can afford anyone <330k
Also, out of Wingard, Dahl and Goodes who do you think is the best AFL Fantasy scorer?
Thanks for the advice in advance.

    teambob · 02/05/2014 at 07:09

    dahl is scoring best atm. goods will keep going down one would think after being the sub first game, bit id watch for a couple weeks first. wingard also gone down a fair bit, im thinking of bringing him in after the byes, if he finds form.

John · 02/05/2014 at 07:47

Ruck problems this week amongst others. Hickey to who community?

Dog dog looks appealing at his price but injury has crippled him.

Goldstein also low but round 8 bye and has not looked that good this year possibly carrying an injury me thinks.

Sauce or minson leave me with not much cash for next weeks round 8 bye trading frenzy.

I really need a keeper in the ruck so any thoughts would be appreciated.


    yesIdohavebacon · 03/05/2014 at 13:43

    lobbe is cheap and fit and number 1 ruck, could be a good gamble.

GarglesnarfFC · 02/05/2014 at 09:09

Nice podcast Jock & community! I really enjoy the Thursday wisdoms, however I found the idea of doing nothing on the forward line intriguing.

My FWD line is a real Dogs breakfast with outs everywhere;

Danger NReiwoldt Pav Buddy Fasolo JKH Bench Lloyd & GfR and $258,800 in bank, with 21 trades left.

My options are to do nothing, double up, or 1up 1down.


1 – Sit tight cop donut trade down Dunstan instead to build warchest by $200k

2 – Trade Buddy>Wingard and Fas to Parker (or Jobe via a swingman) leaving $40k ($5k) in bank

3 – Buddy>Wingard, and Fas>Hallahan (Taylor as swing) $438 in bank

4 – Buddy>Wingard, Dunstan >Hallahan and stick Fas and GfR on the pine. $428 in bank


Which of the 4 sounds best to you guys??

    Wattsieesq · 02/05/2014 at 10:38

    I like trading buddy out so option 1 is out. I'd go option 4 and set your self up for brining in R8 premos in R9

    Roadkill Warrior · 02/05/2014 at 10:42

    Option 5 – Buddy>Wingard and nothing else. You still have a kitty of $200k and can trade down/up next week when Jobe is even cheaper.

Jimmy · 02/05/2014 at 09:27

My rucks are Sandi, Mumford, Hicky and curry. ive had hicky since the start and he has gone up 63k so far. im a bit stuffed this week because mumford, hicky and currie are out. is there a cheap ruckman that i should trade in for hicky to avoid the doughnut or should i just deal with it and trade hicky out later when he has gone up more in price and there is a cheap ruckman on the cards.
Thanks from Jimmys Juggernauts

    GarglesnarfFC · 02/05/2014 at 09:40

    What cash do you have in the kitty and how many trades left?

    Derickx is the only cheapie I can think of at $186k, he might fit the bill for Hickey. Puts about 50-70 pts on the tanle and $180k in your kick.

      Jimmy · 02/05/2014 at 10:05

      171k in the kitty with 21 trades left

LJB · 02/05/2014 at 09:30

Trading out Dunstan this wk to either Watson or Griffin. Sunday nights podcast was all about getting on Griffin and Thursdays is all about Watson.
Who should I get?

    Tom · 02/05/2014 at 09:52

    Watson I'd go

    Beady Eye · 02/05/2014 at 11:19

    Depends on whether you think Griffen is coming into top form and can beat up on the weak opposition in the next few weeks. He'll need to be to hit his BE's: 117, 153, 129, 100 over the next month.

    I'm looking to Jobe first myself, will then reassess Griff after his bye.

Spud · 02/05/2014 at 09:39

I'm looking at Dunstan to Ward this week. Tasty price


    GarglesnarfFC · 02/05/2014 at 09:41

    Thinking about him as well Spud, at the moment preferring Jobe but Callan would give me someone to cheer for at tomorrows game 🙂

Tom · 02/05/2014 at 09:52

Thoughts on bringing in Dahl / Zorko for Impey / Higgins to strengthen my weak forward line

Cam · 02/05/2014 at 09:52

Enright to Hibberd? Looks to push me to 18 playing for Rd8 and get's rid of the big stain in my backline that's hemorrhaging cash. Still have 24 trades and about $700k in the warchest so pretty comfortable with the trade from that side of things.

    Beady Eye · 02/05/2014 at 11:15

    Made the same trade myself. Consistency's not there for Mr Standard Deviation this year.

billy jones · 02/05/2014 at 10:24

i am looking to bring in jobe watson this week for dunstan i have 150k in the bank and i am getting rid of xavier ellis on the bench for someone so i can afford watson BUT who do i get on the midfield bench? hallahan will most likely be sub either him or hartung and with hartungs great endurance and speed i doubt it will be him and o'rouke will be pushed out so who is there and why? help is needed here guys thanks 🙂

    Pat · 02/05/2014 at 11:20

    if its someone who is just gonna sit on the bench, look for moribito, i know he has done his knee 3 times, but he will be in the freo team in the next coming weeks

    Gilly · 02/05/2014 at 14:38

    History suggests that the new player will wear the green vest (Hartung). So if you are looking to trade I think Hallahan is safe for this week. Not sure on his long term js though

    OutKast · 03/05/2014 at 08:07

    I was looking at moving on Suckling with his high BE, so now considering Hanley which would activate Langdon as emergency. Anyone know if Hanley is just a one weeker or something longer? All I can find is ‘back’. It’s a bit risky I think

      OutKast · 03/05/2014 at 08:09

      Apologies replied to wrong post. Stupid iPhone…

    Benno_S · 03/05/2014 at 12:30

    What about Salem from melb. Looked good even though was the sub. Reckon the spot is his to lose.

darcy · 02/05/2014 at 10:38

cristian salem guys thoughts on his job security and scoring output jump on or not?

    Beady Eye · 02/05/2014 at 11:14

    Give him another week and see if he can shake the vest.

    High scoring potential given what he showed in limited time last week; just need to see if he'll get the opportunity to do more.

matt · 02/05/2014 at 10:44

thoughts on petrie for mitchel thinking unique and surely pertrie cant get much worse

    Bellybuttonfluff · 02/05/2014 at 11:58

    Petrie after bye is what i'm thinking.

      matt · 02/05/2014 at 13:24

      yeah im a big fan of that, trade up impey and maybe taylor to him

      Derek · 02/05/2014 at 17:24

      yeah, i'm waiting until after Bye

Bellybuttonfluff · 02/05/2014 at 11:00

Hey all. What would you do in my position? Currently sitting 188 overall. This is my make or break decision. I am thinking of keeping buddy while everyone is dumping. But trading faz> rioli . This is my forward line.
Danger, wright, Dustin, zorko, buddy, faz , jkh, ambrose.
Would keep faz but have bye worries. No swingers from mids either. Do I dump buddy also and get wingard. Have just enough to do both faz and bud to rioli and wing, but would prefer to do only one trade this week. See what's going on need week. Gotta funny feeling there will be some shocks next week.

    matt · 02/05/2014 at 11:17

    maybe get a more consistant daulhaus or robbie gray? instead of rioli,
    keep faz get rid of buddy,

      Bellybuttonfluff · 02/05/2014 at 12:05

      Would love to keep faz but if one has to go in forward because of round 8 byes it looks like it will have to be him. Unless ambrose is still a donut next week. Yeah will keep faz till next week then can trade ambrose for a player if he still donuts. So I guess your right buddy has to go.
      What a bugger he has been to me. Wonder how he'll go against hawks.

        Derek · 02/05/2014 at 17:23

        i'm holding onto Buddy. I think this week off is good for him, Carry a niggle since round 3 has effected his scores. This will get him right for some big scores against the strong clubs. Also need him for round 8 & 9 bye weeks.

Pete · 02/05/2014 at 11:03

Hi Community – I'm thinking of trading out Daisy for Nick Roberston to build the war chest in readiness for the bye rounds. Is this sound? Daisy only seems to be pumping out 80-odd scores, and Flipper has the potential to average ~75 and fatten nicely. Thoughts?

    Beady Eye · 02/05/2014 at 11:13

    Can't see any reason why not. Ride the wave with Flipper!

Litt Up · 02/05/2014 at 12:12

Thoughts on my trades?
Dunstan > Flipper to bank some cash for the coming weeks
im not sure who to trade in for buddy, my gut is telling me either Gray or Dalhaus but I'm also looking at Rioli, Wingard & Pav

    luke goldstien · 02/05/2014 at 13:42

    gray for sure without a doubt super consistent port are coming along nicely which means he will be getting ball alot then more then a loosing team and hits the scoreboard for extra points lock him in mate

Mebois · 02/05/2014 at 12:35

i have an issue here people, my defence is a complete crisis and it is effecting my whole team.

Swallow, bartel, smith, enroght, kolo, lmac.

i have 7 out of 8 players out in the rnd 8 bye,i may keep a few donuts during rnd 8 so that it wont annoy me during the other weeks. thoguh i want to get rid of some of the under perfomers like smith and enright, but i want to bring in jobe, i have 224k.

trade options are:

dunstan> hallahan
these two trades would leave me with 327k

but if i were to bring in jobe i would have to to this week i couldnt upgrade enright or smith, so should i just not get jobe.

    matt · 02/05/2014 at 13:18

    enright would be the 1st priority to get out,
    and maybe smith to a mcveigh

      Mebois · 02/05/2014 at 13:53

      so should i do enright AND smith to hibberd and mcveigh

matthewjsampson · 02/05/2014 at 12:47

Bit of a complicated week of trades for me community.

Booted Suckling Pig for Watson via Langdon's DPP and went wooshka from Dunstan to Wingard through Zorko's DPP.

Mids are now 1 away from full premo, forwards 2 away and defence 3. Opened up some swing sets for the byes and hopefully I'll come reach round 11 at full premo!

Still have $197,200 in the war chest too after going double downs last week

    matt · 02/05/2014 at 13:19

    you could wait a few weeks on wingard then swoop when hes around 380-400k

BCHawks · 02/05/2014 at 13:23

Griffen or Mundy?

    matt · 02/05/2014 at 13:28

    id go mundy for consistancy, but griffen for a higher ceiling

      BCHawks · 02/05/2014 at 13:35

      thanks still unsure what to do.

        Hez · 02/05/2014 at 16:34

        Be aware that Ross Lyon likes to rest his players, so Griffen would be the better option

          Sarah · 02/05/2014 at 17:10

          Yeah but Freo aren't in the position they were in last year… he may not have the luxury of resting stars.

matt · 02/05/2014 at 13:29

gergiuo to cutler
or dunstan to cutler using DPP

    Dools · 02/05/2014 at 14:09

    dunstan to cutler if you have to mate

      Derek · 02/05/2014 at 17:16

      neither. I would hold onto your trade. can't see either adding anything to your team.

Dale · 02/05/2014 at 13:46

I need a big move this week and can’t decide between Watson, Murphy or Zorko for keepers. As many of you already have these guys, what does your experience suggest I should do? Is Zorkos DPP egelebility and price make him a better gain than Watson or Murph?

    Sarah · 02/05/2014 at 17:13

    I already have Watson, but I'd be taking Zorko ahead of Murphy and will do exactly that when the time is right. There aren't many good forward, and he's a midfielder that you can put in the forward line… which for me makes him a better trade target than Murphy.

    Derek · 02/05/2014 at 17:16

    I had Watson from week 1. I think he will be in top 8 midfielders at the end of the year. I don't see either Zorko or Murphy being there. At the start of the year I may have been temped to go Zorko or Murphy because their price was significantly lower than Watson's, but now there isn't that reason. Watson!

OzSonic · 02/05/2014 at 13:56

Emergency loopholing Langdon/Georgiou with Langford so I'll keep him this week.
Emergency loopholing JKH/Lloyd with Rohan so I'll keep him as well (better be on the ball with that though)
Loopholing Beams tonight with Thurlow.

It's a loophole fest and I need to!

Looking at going like this.

Buddy > Zorko
Fasolo > Billings or just keep. Leaning towards Billings though. Thoughts?

    Dale · 02/05/2014 at 15:15

    The Zorko-Billings combo seems to work well for forward fixes and I have Swallow yo move back to fill a McDobald trade out too. Still not sure wether a Watson and rookie trade is better than Zorko- billings and wether nacD or Swallow is better to trade out.

Captain joc · 02/05/2014 at 14:07

Shaun Burgoyne or Michael hibberd?
Shaun Burgoyne 101 avg 119 BE rd9 bye 130 high score 72 low score 484k
Michael hibberd 103 avg 80 BE rd10 bye 124 high score 84 low score 525k
Who wins?

    Gilly · 02/05/2014 at 14:47

    Captain, I think if you have the coin go to Hibberd.

    I am a Hawks fan but Burgoyne is not a consistent fantasy player, 2009-2013 he avg 81, 100, 80, 82, 85 he is a fantastic role player. Great for Supercoach when the Hawks need a spark and they put him in the guts but will often spend a game on the half back flank and score 70.

    Hibberd looks to have taken that next step 2011-2013 avg'd 74, 74, 96. and a solid start to this year. I was going to start with him this year but the pre season hammy put me off. I would like to bring him in but not sure it is the right time for me to do it.

    Good luck

      Derek · 02/05/2014 at 17:13

      I agree, also a hawks Fan. Hawks defence at the start of this year was a shadow of what it will be rest of year. We had cheny and Spangher back there holding the fort! Hodge did the tough work (I saw him marking HMac) and Burgoyne was used to clear the ball out of defence. With Stratton, lake and Shoey back, the whole backline will change.

    chandanrajdb · 02/05/2014 at 15:30

    Hibberd mate….i have to agree with Gilly here…..

      Dools · 02/05/2014 at 16:47

      Hey lads have a look at Kade Simpson. tell me what you reckon???

        chandanrajdb · 02/05/2014 at 16:57

        Round 9 Bye…I think i have too many DEF players in RD 9 bye not good….may be after his bye i will be bringing him myself…..That is the only reason I am not considering him bringing in to my team……

        S Mitchell, W Langford, M Suckling……currently in my team…..obviously 2 off them will be gone after RD8……but do not want another Premo sitting on the bench during rd 9…..wait for one more week and bring him in….

        IMO…..I will be happy with the following 6 Premo DEF'ers in my team….

        S Mitchell, M Hibberd, K Simpson, S Swallow, J Bartel, J MaCveigh…..

        In my current team I have got…..S Mitchell, D Swallow, J MaCveigh…..Thinking of bringing in M Hibberd this week and after rd 8 bye Bartel and after rd9 bye Simpson…..thats my plan hopefully works….which should complete my DEF with Premos……

        Thoughts would be appreciated…….


          Captain joc · 02/05/2014 at 18:28

          If he drops abit in price he will be all over my radar next week dools as I personally don’t think hibberd is worth the price tag

            chandanrajdb · 02/05/2014 at 18:32

            Thoughts on the trades below mate….

            OUT: M Thomas & L McDonald
            IN: J Watson & M Hibberd
            $186,000 left in the warchest


          Captain joc · 02/05/2014 at 18:57

          Solid improvement on your side with those trades

            chandanrajdb · 02/05/2014 at 19:03

            Are you doing any trades this week mate??

          Captain joc · 02/05/2014 at 19:44

          Yeah mate mine are more complicated tho I’ve got Langdon with the Emg tonight if he goes well ill trade out m.thomas and Dunstan, if not I’ll swing McDonald into the back line and trade out m.thomas and Langford for jobe Watson and I’m thinking of brad ebert but not 100% on who in the Mids
          Looking to go BANG BANG!!

      Azmataz · 02/05/2014 at 22:37

      Hibberd through and through

Simon T · 02/05/2014 at 14:44


Need your thoughts on the following. Trying to fix up my defence and rucks and make the most amount of cash but finding the options available very limited.

1) Cameron (GC) to Cutler (Bris) leaves $141,500 in the bank
2) Mummy to West with the hope of getting Mummy back after Round 9 bye which leaves me more cash or Currie to Derrickx but leaves me with less – only $112,900.

Any thoughts/suggestions would be much appreciated.

Kruzey · 02/05/2014 at 15:14

Pavlich, Parker, or Dalhouse?

    Litt up · 02/05/2014 at 15:34

    Parker mate

Todd · 02/05/2014 at 15:49

Guys not sure what to do this week.
Should I;

1) get rid of buddy and dunstan for r gray and priddis. 100k left in war chest

2) get rid of buddy and dunstan for r gray and hallahan. 500k in war chest going into the byes.

If I go with option 2 I will be able to get pendles and selwood in after the round 8 bye but will suffer in these next two weeks.

    Bellybuttonfluff · 02/05/2014 at 16:38


    Derek · 02/05/2014 at 17:08

    I am going to hold off on both this week. I probably wouldn't have played Dunstan on ground anyway against the hawks, so not missing anything there, plus his price won't drop this week.

    I have Buddy, I am actually glad they are resting him. He has been carrying a niggle in that knee for a couple of weeks, so I prefer he has a rest and gets it right so he can pump out some 100+ scores when fit. It would have been nice have him smash the Lions though. Swans have a round 10 Bye, will be important to have him for rounds 8 & 9.

Danny · 02/05/2014 at 16:24

Will Ambrose play this week????
How is the better cash cow

N Robertson (bris MID) 3 games
P Ambrose (ess FWD) 2 games

    Danny · 02/05/2014 at 16:27

    **Who is better better cash cow?

    (stupid fat fingers can't type)

      Bellybuttonfluff · 02/05/2014 at 16:36

      Ambrose better cash cow but only emergency so Robbo better.

Dools · 02/05/2014 at 16:50

Hey community, I have downgraded a Premium and brought in Hannebery – Madness?

    chandanrajdb · 02/05/2014 at 17:01

    Hey Dools,

    I think Hannebery is too inconsistent in my opinion…..

    Anyways good luck with that trade…..who know it may pay off…..but doing a sideways trade not worth at this time of the season…….


    Philthy · 02/05/2014 at 17:28

    who is premo? sounds mad…..

      Dools · 02/05/2014 at 17:45

      NICK Del Santos AVG 114 , MADNESS? Round 8 bye for a around 10 bye as I have GAJ, Pendles, and Beams (From Rnd 1) Nick was a Solid member of the team but he is now part of the Garden by the shed …. Just like Dusty…. next week

        Philthy · 02/05/2014 at 18:06

        if you dedicate a future trade to Hanners then i can see your logic

        Cam_H · 02/05/2014 at 18:23

        After losing sleep over the fate of Dustin Martin, I've walked him out to the shed, looked at his stupid haircut and fugly neck ink, taken into account the Round 8 Bye and abysmal record of Richmond versus Geelong over recent years, and decided to release him to a better life on another plane of existence. Welcome Mr. Billings – one week late, but "meh".

        SCAddict can give me a rousing "I told you so!" when Dusty tonnes-up this week!

          SCaddict · 02/05/2014 at 19:08

          Nah mate I'd never say that. Dusty's given me a few sleepless nights the past month too. I may rue not dumping him this weekend but have other trades I'd rather make right now.

          I'm clutching on to the hope that the re-injection of some of their talent this week lifts the Tiges out of their torpour and improves Dusty's performance as a byproduct.

          But you have to listen to your own gut. If I knew what the right play was every time I wouldn't be sitting ranked 11,771 ha ha.

        Danners16 · 02/05/2014 at 19:57

        Why the heck did you do N.Dal Santo to D.Hannebery, absolutely stupid

          Dools · 02/05/2014 at 21:06

          I have played with the figure again Danners, and You are right Del Santo stays but Hannebery is still in.

Philthy · 02/05/2014 at 17:27

I have both Buddy and Hanley, who does the community think will score higher for rest of season? i'm only trading 1 out this week

    MightyDonsFC · 02/05/2014 at 18:23

    Keep hanley, kick out buddy

Dan · 02/05/2014 at 17:32

Do I trade or hold Fasolo?

Josh · 02/05/2014 at 17:52

Hey guys, your thoughts on this trade strategy, with an eye on covering round 8.
This week –
Fasolo to Dahlhaus
Tyson to Robertson

Next week –
McDonald to Hibberd
Dunstan to Hallahan

    Philthy · 02/05/2014 at 18:07

    looks good

Jesse · 02/05/2014 at 17:55

Ward or Priddis?

    Philthy · 02/05/2014 at 18:06

    priddis, Giants will run out of steam

    Todd · 02/05/2014 at 18:16

    Priddis easily. He has averaged 110+ for the past two seasons if u take away his concussion effected games. Is also a lot more consistent

    Danners16 · 02/05/2014 at 19:41


Sully321 · 02/05/2014 at 18:14

Hi community,
I need either a down grade option in my midfield for Dunstan or a downgrade option in the fwd line for martin

    Danners16 · 02/05/2014 at 19:51

    Don't dump D.Martin, he will get back up, for Dunstan, he might have not played a game but yet but I like the look of B.Acres, starting on the wing so you have no sub worries and is in a team where he will get a lot of games

    Derek · 02/05/2014 at 23:09

    Keep Martin

Bob McBob · 02/05/2014 at 18:18

Cyril Rioli or Dayne Zorko. Which is the better pick.

I already brought in Dahlhaus and next week I will bring in Wingard.

    Danners16 · 02/05/2014 at 19:41

    Cyril Rioli, has the Round 9 bye which there aren't too many players out in the bye

MightyDonsFC · 02/05/2014 at 18:21

Hey guys, sorry for being late on the post, an unexpected footy training was held and I was forced to attend. Anyways, enough of that and let's get into my forwards edition of TATh.

Dayne Zorko: $459,200, Avg. 103.7, BE 65, HS 161 LS 46 Bye rd 10
Apart from his 46, where he received a massive knock and didn't look the same after it, Zorko has gotten off to a ripping start to the season. So far he's averaged 25 disposals, half a goal, 6.2 tackles, 4.3 clearances and 4 I50's per game. Zorko had a rubbish fantasy foot year in 2013, which was mainly due to Voss using him as a forward. However, Leppa has come in and stuck Zorko straight back into the guts, which is brilliant news for us. Underpriced with a tiny BE, this week would be ideal to being Zorko in. He's already played Port, Hawks, and Geelong so he has an easier run coming into the second half of the season. Won't get a tag, due to Hanley, Adcock and Rockliff being in the same side. Looks to be back on track to finish in the top 10 forwards and is nearly a must for your team.

Predicted average: 102-105

Luke Dahlhaus: $460,800, Avg. 102, BE 24, HS 128 LS 59 Bye rd 9
It seems that his dreads had been weighing him down in previous years because he looks a new player in 2014. So far he's averaged 23.6 disposals, 1.2 goals, 5 tackles, 2.8 clearances and 2.4 I50's per game. Like Zorko, extended midfield time and elite disposal efficency has made Dahlhaus' scores something to take notice of. Also like Zorko, you will want to bring him in this week, if not you'll be facing a 490k investment for next week. Won't cop a tag due to Murphy, Griffen, Boyd, Macrae, Libba and even Higgins. I see a steady output from Dahlhaus for the remainder of the season, with a stinker and some 120's here and there.

Predicted average: 97-100

Robbie Gray: 500k, Avg, 102.8, BE 62, HS 139 LS 78 Bye rd 9
Had this bloody beauty since the start. Likened to Gaz in his junior days, it was just a matter of time before Gray started to make the forward to midfield transition. This season he's averaged 21.2 disposals, 2 goals, 2.2 tackles, 3.2 clearances and 2.8 I50's per game. Like the other two, Gray is benefiting of much more midfield time this season. His goal kicking and goal kicking ability has been taken to a new level this season. However, what I've been most impressed about so far has been Robbie's consistency. A low score of JUST 78! He also shouldn't cop a tag due to Boak and Hartlett. I predict that Robbie Gray will be in the top 4 scoring forwards by the end of the year so try to get him in your side when he goes <500k.

Predicted average: 106-109

Thanks for reading, special mention to Luke Parker who's also been amazing for Sydney so far this season and should be one to look at for your teams.

    Dan · 02/05/2014 at 19:10

    Which of the three would you recommend?

      MightyDonsFC · 02/05/2014 at 19:31

      Depends on your bye situation. I'd rank them 1 Gray 2 Zorko 3 Dahlhaus

    Cam_H · 02/05/2014 at 19:11

    Once again … thumbs up MightyDons! Good on you for deliberating on one of the great conundrums of the week.

    As a Crows man I'd like to wish Robbie Gray …. agonising pain …. pustules …. 1,0000 cuts – especially that bit near your thumb nail … and all that jazz, but he does seem to be a decent buy-in. My Lord, it's been difficult to look at Jared Polac in my team week-after-week and being unable to slit his throat … maybe Round 10 .. mahah … Mwahaha!!!

    Rioli's the other 'gun' in the pack I guess. 'Iffy' ability to stay on the park, but well worth a look.

    Thanks again!

    Danners16 · 02/05/2014 at 19:37

    Great stuff MightyDonsFC, you might need to start up your own website with a few mates or keep doing what you're doing

    dognino · 02/05/2014 at 21:41

    What are people's thoughts on Jamie Elliot from collingwood? 101 avg so far , $475k and the pies leading goal kicker so far. Currently on 86 points at not quite 3/4 time in this game

      john snow · 02/05/2014 at 21:44

      I like him. had him in my team all preseason and then got rid of him. same with brad hill…. then took in Savage at the last minute as my mid, mid-pricer.

        dognino · 02/05/2014 at 21:55

        He would've been a great pickup at the start of the season for $390k….and I chose caddy

todd · 02/05/2014 at 18:23

Hey community,
I need to get rid of either buddy or t Mitchell to avoid a 0. Personally I want to keep Mitchell as I think he will come back into the team after this week after building up form in the senfl and will also produce more consistent output.

    Danners16 · 02/05/2014 at 19:40

    Buddy needs to go, too inconsistent, maybe go to a Chad Wingard

Josh · 02/05/2014 at 18:49

hey guys, stuck with fasolo and ambrose on my bench, is it worth holding or trading patrick ambrose?

    Cam_H · 02/05/2014 at 18:56

    I guess that depends on the quality of your F5 and F6. I personally would hold Ambrose if I could afford to keep him on the bench.

    SCaddict · 02/05/2014 at 19:12

    Would wait until an appealing forward rookie is on the bubble first.

    Who knows….if the Dons lose this week Bomber may shake up the team and bring Ambrose back in. You never know.

    Danners16 · 02/05/2014 at 19:39

    Keep them both, Ambrose is a good player for the Captain loophole

    Derek · 02/05/2014 at 23:05

    Hold. Cash to be made when he plays. Not many other options.

Michael · 02/05/2014 at 19:16

Hey community, trades for this week:
1. Dunstan out, Pendles in (I know, R8 bye but I want to grab points and I've got 3 trades next week to cover R8)
2. Langford out, Swallow in (again R8 as above)

Team now:
DEF: Swallow / McVeigh / SMitch / Suckling / McDonald / Enright / Langdon / Cameron
MID: GAJ / Pendles / Beams / Murph / JJK / Polec / Fyfe / Crouch / Taylor / Robertson
RUC: Sandy / Pyke / Derickx / KIng
FWD: Danger / Zorko / Pav / Dusty / Higgins / Lloyd / JKH / Ambrose

Have only $3.6K left but the best DEF and 2nd best MID – thoughts? Right move?

Thanks guys

    Michael · 02/05/2014 at 19:17

    BTW going for $50K and about 20K so need to make moves now before it's too late!

      Danners16 · 02/05/2014 at 19:39

      Looks alright, good trades if you can afford to do them with the byes

    SCdonkey · 02/05/2014 at 23:27

    Hope you didnt make that Langford to Swallow trade. You'd be kicking yourself now, if you did.

      Ocker · 02/05/2014 at 23:38

      Why would you be kicking yourself Donkey?

        SCdonkey · 02/05/2014 at 23:44

        Must be late for me. Got mixed up with Langdon. Hahaha my bad. Now I'm kicking myself.

          Ocker · 02/05/2014 at 23:46

          Can be confusing can't it Heeey, OR He Haw.

      Michael · 02/05/2014 at 23:45

      You’re not confusing Langford with Langdon are you?

        SCdonkey · 02/05/2014 at 23:48

        I was mate. I was! Feeling like a real donkey now!

Gary · 02/05/2014 at 19:34

Hey everyone,

quick question, hibberd. j.mcveigh, k.simpson or m.johnson for fasolo?

    Captain joc · 02/05/2014 at 19:39


    Danners16 · 02/05/2014 at 19:54

    Hibberd if you can afford him

    Azmataz · 02/05/2014 at 22:36

    Hibberd I reckon is the most reliable and consistent

The Regular · 02/05/2014 at 19:38

1.impey listed on ground away v gws
2. jkh away to adelaide on ic
3. Lloyd away to geelong on ic

Who would you play?

    Wattsieesq · 02/05/2014 at 22:44


Sean · 02/05/2014 at 19:43

Last minute decision: R.Gray or L.Dahlhaus?

    Brad · 02/05/2014 at 21:05

    Gray won't get as high scores as he's getting due to monfries coming back and pushing wingard back up the field. But 'not as high' doesn't mean high, I would think he will still average 100 if not very close!

    Had Dalhaus at the start of the year then traded him out the round that he didn't play because I had other non playing players in my fwd line. If you've watched a few of he's games he DOES NOT STOP RUNNING AND TRYING, I LOVE HIM, and this year will be his breakout season guaranteed!

    As of choosing I'd get both!

      Azza · 02/05/2014 at 22:31

      Robbie Gray I reckon mate.

      My two trades this week hae been Fasolo and Titchell out. Robbie Gray and Hibberd in (via Sam Day swing).

      Hopefully it pays off…I don't reckon Monfries injection will affect his scores that much..

BCHawks · 02/05/2014 at 19:59

I had Dangerfield as VC but when I just checked then it was set to Beams. I am annoyed and I now reckon that he will have a huge score.

    Ocker · 02/05/2014 at 23:52

    Would not worry too much, Dangerfield does not have great scores against Melbourne. I went Beams myself but GAJ was always going to be captain.


dognino · 02/05/2014 at 20:51

Decision made and it's not even half time yet, keep Langdon as D6 and get rid of enright next round

Brad · 02/05/2014 at 20:57

My decisions were great this round as of half time!!! Kept Langdon and put on field and got Murphy in! 🙂

    Ocker · 02/05/2014 at 23:56

    Why consider parting with Langdon with a break even of 22? He will go up $44,000 this week now.
    Glad you made the right decision..


Michael · 02/05/2014 at 20:59

Langdon on 79 at halftime. Had him as E, will now swap McDonald for Cameron and use E loophole successfully for the first time ever! Woohoo!

    Brad · 02/05/2014 at 21:06

    What does murph have?

      dognino · 02/05/2014 at 21:28

      Only on 45 at half time

    Michael · 03/05/2014 at 14:29

    SC gods bite back – Sammy Mitchell subbed out on 8pts!

Michael · 02/05/2014 at 21:49

Langdon 108 at 3/4 time.
Other notables:
Beams 84
Pendles 82
Cloke 81
Swan 62
Murph 62
Daisy 53

Wattsieesq · 02/05/2014 at 22:48

Langdon's 128 was fantastic. Had him on field, so stoked about that. After the 90 he scored last week, he looks like he'll reach $400k in a few rounds time. He and Polec will be my last culls.

    MightyDonsFC · 02/05/2014 at 22:51

    Same here

      Ocker · 03/05/2014 at 00:00

      Byes and this weeks game for me might dictate hanging on to Polec. Or going Pendles, Selwood.
      Langdon has to stay now but will see how McDonald goes.


        throttlefinger · 03/05/2014 at 05:52

        Need a R8 out for my 18 and Lukey boy looks like the pick of the lot. Unless he goes 95+, we're going to the shed next week.

          Wattsieesq · 03/05/2014 at 08:56

          I'm with you TF. Crouch and LMac are my only R8 rooks and Crouch hasn't had the time to mature yet. I'm in the same boat as you and I'll be making that trade next week.

    throttlefinger · 03/05/2014 at 05:51

    Agree. Or may just stay as my D6. Form is looking really strong. And he's playing with top confidence.

      Wattsieesq · 03/05/2014 at 08:58

      Brave call to make him D6 as he's been patchy at the start of the year. It's not unheard of as people had Terlich (sp?) as their D6 at the end of last year.

        throttlefinger · 03/05/2014 at 09:21

        Very true, Wattsie. And if he plays he did today, he could be this year's Terlich. Only a few defs rook, mid or prem have not been patchy. My team McV, Houli, Dunn have all been up and down. Anyone who can go 125 in their 7th game is definitely in the running to earn a permanent spot on team Throttle.

          Wattsieesq · 03/05/2014 at 10:47

          Agreed. Bar Polec, all rooks have been patchy. Only Gaz, Pendles, and Beems have been punching out tons all year so anything is possible regarding keepers.

Derek · 02/05/2014 at 23:01

I’m surprised there was an actual increase this week in the number of people who owned Langdon. I guess with Langford not playing everyone kept him and we are all smiling tonight.

I had him as E but will now put Langford on field to get the points

    Wattsieesq · 02/05/2014 at 23:38

    That is surprising his ownership rose given his price. I'm not surprised people held on to him. Low BE after pumping out 90 last week, he had a couple more weeks to ripen. With today's score that BE will be decreasing and holding time longer.

    Ocker · 03/05/2014 at 00:07

    Not sure about an actual increase in who owns Langdon but he is now going up about $44,000 and will have a BE of about -28


      Captain joc · 03/05/2014 at 01:23

      How do you figure that out Coker?

        Captain joc · 03/05/2014 at 01:24


          Ocker · 03/05/2014 at 02:38

          Last 2 Scores and price along with this weeks score multiplied by the magic number. Captain.


            Ocker · 03/05/2014 at 02:46

            Do you want a copy of my spreadsheet and calculator Captain.
            NOT Futuristic But realistic. (Lets see if I am right but confident I am)
            Jock can put it on site for all to see and download if he wants too, I will update every week. (No microphone so cant do it myself)


              Wattsieesq · 03/05/2014 at 09:01

              Is this the formula you use Ocker?

              ((Price/5350) * 3) – Their last two scores.


                Michael · 03/05/2014 at 14:41

                so Langdon's BE next week will be (($263400/5350)*3) – 90 – 128 = -70?

                  Wattsieesq · 03/05/2014 at 16:30

                  No. You are using his past price, not the price updated for the128. Also, I'm not sure if the magic number of 5350 is correct. It was the magic number in 2013, but I'm not sure if it has changed in 2014. That's why I was asking Ocker if it is the one he uses.

                Ocker · 04/05/2014 at 00:24

                Wattsie, The current figure is 4979


                Ocker · 04/05/2014 at 00:44

                Wattsie yes that is the formula I use for B/E

                Price Change Formula:

                Sum previous three rounds /3 *4979 -Current Price /4


                  Wattsieesq · 04/05/2014 at 16:58

                  Thanks Ocker

Derek · 02/05/2014 at 23:02

Should I take Dasiy’s score of 64, or play Cunningham?

    Ocker · 03/05/2014 at 00:14

    If you can find a coin, Flip It.
    Your problem is minor. Looking at stats I would say 64 in the bank is better than the unknown.


      Ocker · 03/05/2014 at 00:25

      By the way I am taking Buckley's 65 over what Lewis Taylor may score.


Donut_King · 03/05/2014 at 00:37

A lot of us didn't have the trust in Langdon to churn out a 125+ and now that thats happened we have a dilemma. I can trade out Dunstan and then use McDonald's DPP to swing him into the midfield and then have the opportunity to trade in a defender. You see i have the E on Langdon but everyone on my team is playing so the question remain; is it necessary to trade in a player that isn't playing this week to loophole Langdon's 128? I know a lot of the community is stick in this same situation and just want your thoughts. Thanks guys 🙂

    dognino · 03/05/2014 at 00:48

    Waste of a trade IMO unless you still have Langford on the bench, trade out dunstan , swing lmac into the mids, put Langford on field and trade in a cutler or such onto the bench.

      Ocker · 03/05/2014 at 00:55

      Seems like a silly thought just to get Langdon's score you are wasting a trade and chasing points for one week, Show your team and there maybe something more constructive you can do to get him on the field.


      Ocker · 03/05/2014 at 00:59

      Are you going for a League win, Overall and how much in the bank?


        Captain joc · 03/05/2014 at 01:22

        If you do do it get a def/mid swing man like j.hunt from Melbourne I don’t recommend it tho

          Danny · 03/05/2014 at 01:55

          Really only if you trade in Hanley, imo. Otherwise why waste a trade

    OutKast · 03/05/2014 at 08:12

    I was looking at moving on Suckling with his high BE, so now considering Hanley which would activate Langdon as emergency. Anyone know if Hanley is just a one weeker or something longer? All I can find is ‘back’. It’s a bit risky I think

      Frase_77 · 03/05/2014 at 09:19

      Exactly what I’m looking at doing.
      Have my concerns too.

Captain joc · 03/05/2014 at 03:23

M.thomas to fyfe or sloane or stevie j ? Or stick with original plan and go ebert I’m just not sure if I see ebert in my final team decisions decisions

Need someone who will be in my final midfield plus help me get through the byes

    Captain joc · 03/05/2014 at 03:26

    P.S. I’m already trading Dunstan to Watson
    And have a current midfield of Ablett, pendlebury, beams, liberatore, crouch, polec, m.thomas, McDonald, Robertson, dunstan( becoming watson)

      Ocker · 03/05/2014 at 03:46

      Yes too many in round 8, Watson and Rockliff or Josh Kennedy (Swans) Luke Parker if you don't have him. Seems like you are going for Overall win,.
      Watson I have had from start of year, Looking to get Jelwood and Pendles after bye.
      Good Luck.

      Ocker · 03/05/2014 at 04:00

      At best Ebert might make a mid 8 but for mine not in best 15 mids at end of season.


        Captain joc · 03/05/2014 at 09:49

        Thanks mate I’ll hold off on rockliff he has a big B/E
        I’m thinking fyfe or kennedy
        Yes ongoing for overall I will be picking up noël wood after the bye too and maybe one of sloane or swan

          Mebois · 03/05/2014 at 11:33

          you should consider boyd, he has been awesome this year and he dosent look like he will slow down soon, or maybe consider griffen, ward and boak (gonna go big today. i can feel it)

          Captain joc · 03/05/2014 at 13:34

          I think Boyd is a tad too expensive I don’t believe Griffen will get back up to his last year standard ward has a tough draw and boak will get tagged alot

Ocker · 03/05/2014 at 03:43

Yes too many in round 8, Watson and Rockliff or Josh Kennedy (Swans) Luke Parker if you don't have him. Seems like you are going for Overall win,.
Watson I have had from start of year, Looking to get Jelwood and Pendles after bye.
Good Luck.


    Derek · 03/05/2014 at 11:33

    Yep. I have two spots in midfield reserved for Selwood and pendels

Sully321 · 03/05/2014 at 11:50

Aish or crouch on the field using Langdon loophole

    Benno_S · 03/05/2014 at 12:16

    My dilemma is aish, polac or maybe dustin Martin. Suggestions please!!! I'm leaning towards aish but can he pull out another 100+?

      Sully321 · 03/05/2014 at 12:36

      Out of those aish and polec I'd probably go with aish on the bench due to port playing gws

Shaun · 03/05/2014 at 11:52

Need some help please!!!

Good trades??

Ellis- Hallahan and Dunstan-Cutler or Gardiner??

    Derek · 03/05/2014 at 12:42

    I would hold this week. Neither trade really improves your team.

Barry · 03/05/2014 at 11:56

Hey community,

I'm trading out Dunstan and can get any player from the def,mid or fwd lines. I am leaning towards getting a midfielder in but want one that does not have a rd 8 bye and one that will finish in the top 15 midfielders this year. Which player should i look to get in this week? I already have ablett, beams, jpk and jobe as my premos

    Benno_S · 03/05/2014 at 12:12

    Nathan jones. Only 2 scores under 120. Currently 9th ranked midfielder. Pod only owned by 2% of teams

BundyBear · 03/05/2014 at 12:14

Howdy Community. Need a hand making up my mind. Have Loyd and JKH. which one of the two should I put on the paddock?

    Benno_S · 03/05/2014 at 12:24

    I'm going to wait and see if jkh is the sub. If not, he's on the ground as Loyd might get the vest.

      BundyBear · 03/05/2014 at 12:26

      Thankyou for that. makes sense to me

simon · 03/05/2014 at 12:58

Tom Mitchell….. What are the chances he will be upgraded from the Emergency list?

    Wattsieesq · 03/05/2014 at 16:31


cudz · 03/05/2014 at 13:04

Webster or mcdonald on field???

Sully321 · 03/05/2014 at 13:49

Aish, crouch or polec on the bench

    Michael · 03/05/2014 at 14:59

    hope you've got Polec on field, 51 pts at quarter time…

Michael · 03/05/2014 at 14:30

Sam Mitchell subbed out injured on 8pts – the SC gods bite back after Langdon's 128 last night.

    Michael · 03/05/2014 at 14:43

    first reports are a calf injury, so at least 2-3 weeks minimum I'd say given he's been subbed.

      Michael · 03/05/2014 at 14:44

      given Hawks have R9 bye I'd say he won't be back until R10 at earliest, so minimum 3 weeks.

Barry · 03/05/2014 at 14:51

Hello everybody. who out of Dangerfield, Watson or JPK should i use the vc loophole on this week? My opponent doesn't have any of these players.

MightyDonsFC · 03/05/2014 at 15:38

Langdon to mitchell in a few weeks

Michael · 03/05/2014 at 15:38

Polec on 81 at halftime.

MightyDonsFC · 03/05/2014 at 15:39

Salem is melbournes sub

dognino · 03/05/2014 at 17:56

Just once I'd like to get within 100 points of my projected score, pre round was projected for 2300 . Now I'll be lucky to make 2100 with Mitchell, reiwoldt, treloar and wingard dropping 200 between them

BCHawks · 03/05/2014 at 19:24

Switched Ambrose on field for Martin and I am taking JKH score.

    Rocksta · 03/05/2014 at 23:39

    Like everyone else

      BCHawks · 04/05/2014 at 07:17

      I should of done Zorko instead. I doubt that Matin will get less than 59.

Danners16 · 03/05/2014 at 19:58

It seems that the Supercoach gods don't like me these past few weeks, S.Mitchell, M.Jaensch, N.Jones, N.Riewoldt don't know what else is going to happen, R.Griffen to score like 70 or less? Hope it changes

    dognino · 03/05/2014 at 21:00

    It seems the supercoach gods thought it was planning too far ahead and have decided to take Mitchell and pyke so far this round , I have 5 players now who have dropped about 250 points from their projected score, added onto the fact that my league opponent has 4 players who have combined for 150 points more than their projection. Pre game projection had me on about 2300 and the win by nearly 200 points, I'm now going to be lucky to make 2100 , that's even with Langdon, polec and JKH scores, and a league loss by about 150-200 points. Awesome

Brad · 03/05/2014 at 21:02

As soon as Pyke has his first good half for the year….. Pulls a hammy! REALLY NOT HAPPY :{

derek · 03/05/2014 at 22:55

Drat!. tried to be clever and had Archie Smith on field for cap loophole, but forgot to put E on HMac. Bad mistake.

piewood1 · 03/05/2014 at 23:17

Supercoach gods are treating me ok 1307/14 gazza as captain, tons from unlikely sources Tyson, Landon & Burnman Higgins certainly helps.

    BundyBear · 04/05/2014 at 13:40

    I think there are worse burnmen then Higgins this year.

tyzsb · 03/05/2014 at 23:51

Biggest sh#t sandwich this week so far……

Jaensch , Mitchell, JHK on bench, Merret subbed, Wingard a pathetic 70, Zorko 68 and Jobe Watson 88….

Glass half empty · 03/05/2014 at 23:59

Brought Callan Ward & Breust in this week and had some luck with JKH and Langdon with the loophole . There has to be a catch though…SC gods surely have something up their sleeve for Sunday.

Captain joc · 04/05/2014 at 01:15


Injuries to Mitchell, pyke and jaensch aren’t to bad as I was planning on trading (jaensch and pyke) anyway and with Mitchell 50% have him so not too bad

I’ve got a dilemma I’ve got the E on Robertson (scores 89) now I could take that or I could trade m.thomas to fyfe like I planned too?

    Bruce · 04/05/2014 at 02:22

    m. thomas may not start which will help.

      Captain joc · 04/05/2014 at 02:27

      M Thomas isn’t starting his an emergency for the tigers

Adam · 04/05/2014 at 05:23

Oh man, I didn't check the teams and now goddards on the bench

I feel so stupid :/

Shaun · 04/05/2014 at 10:30

Did enright get tagged last week vs Port Adelaide?? Could someone please inform me!

    themightyroos · 04/05/2014 at 11:55

    no he didn't, just couldn't find the ball.

      Shaun · 04/05/2014 at 11:57

      Okay thanks! I’m going for overall round win as I think I have a chance! Can trade Luke McDonald to any defender who should it be??? Enright, Scott Thompson, Michael Johnson?? Or keep KOLO on field?

        Shaun · 04/05/2014 at 12:01

        Now Luke McDonald is sub!! Should I trade??

          SCaddict · 04/05/2014 at 12:07

          Yes he will only lose value unless there is an early Kangas injury so trade him if you have a good trade target available.

          Unfortunately I've burnt both my trades this round so will just have to cop the cash hit.

            Bill · 04/05/2014 at 12:13

            Jimmy Bartel, Enright, Scott Thompson, Michael Johnson??? Who do you believe??

              Tom.H · 04/05/2014 at 12:15


              SCaddict · 04/05/2014 at 12:18

              I'd pick who best fits your team's overall bye structure. All those are good selections although I'm personally not keen on Enright who's out of form and many coaches are dumping right now.

              Still he could bounce back this game as the Cats normally perform well against the Tiges.

Shaun · 04/05/2014 at 13:08

Ok thanks heaps guys!!

Captain joc · 04/05/2014 at 13:31

Was gonna go Thomas to fyfe but McDonald being sub has made my decision

McDonald to fyfe it is

dognino · 04/05/2014 at 19:24

Another dismal score of 2090 , big thanks to reiwoldt, Mitchell, McDonald, merret for their combined 77 points . Pike going down adds another dose of awesomeness but hell at least he still scored better than his last 2 weeks .

Michael · 04/05/2014 at 19:41

Finished with 2334, not bad but I think scores will be high this round so will be interesting to see my position – currently around the 20K mark, hoping this will put me around the 15K mark. Letdowns were injuries to SMitch & Pyke, with Pav, Zorko & Swallow (damn, just traded him in this week!) down as well.

My BE results (actual score minus BE):
JKH +132
Robertson +122
Polec +107
Langdon +106
MCrouch +92
Danger +74
Murph +72
Derickx +65
Sandy +55

BCHawks · 04/05/2014 at 20:35

I think I am one of the only people to get a lower score this week than last week. Still can't complain with 2232.

The Regular · 04/05/2014 at 20:45

My defensive risk of georgiou Mcdonald and Cutler on ground burnt my butt.

Lowest score of year after a double upgrade, filthy stinking game that it is. lol 2151

john snow · 04/05/2014 at 20:52

2062. Reiwoldt, Cutler, Georgio, Mitchell for 103!!! Could have been an ok score if these four had a crack

Bill · 04/05/2014 at 20:53

What score do you guys think will win the weekly prize??

    MightyDonsFC · 04/05/2014 at 21:06

    Around 2600

      Matt · 04/05/2014 at 21:07

      no way, what has been the highest score this year???

        MightyDonsFC · 04/05/2014 at 21:19

        Not sure, this rounds HS was 2642 so it's gotta be up there

          Matt · 04/05/2014 at 21:21

          wow thats a huge score, i thought i did alright with 2356 this week !!

            MightyDonsFC · 04/05/2014 at 21:30

            Great score! Planned any trades this week?

              Matt · 04/05/2014 at 21:41

              Thanks a lot mighty!!
              i have a stack load of midfielders out this week including Gaz, Dal Santo, Beams, Cotchin and M. crouch so im thinking langdon to become Jobe Watson, but im waiting for the podcast to give me some other aspects to look at.
              What about you MD??

                MightyDonsFC · 04/05/2014 at 21:50

                I'd hold onto langdon for now still value to be made. For the moment I'm going
                Could change depending on podcast and how severe jaensch's injury is.

                  Matt · 04/05/2014 at 21:56

                  ah yer sounds solid, i dont have either of those boys, so you would recommend holding langdon for a while until he makes enough money?
                  Also what are oyur thoughts on suckling, i have him but is it time to upgrade him this week?

                    Michael · 04/05/2014 at 22:13

                    I'd hold on Suckling at least until after next game against Swans, they have the bye after that so if he doesn't make BE (74) then offload him for a R8 premo such as Bartel or Swallow next week if you have $$$.

Derek · 04/05/2014 at 20:55

I had a shocker. Capped off by not putting E on HMac. 2220 way off the pace.

Ocker · 04/05/2014 at 21:03

I had an ordinary week with Mitchell 9, McDonald 12, Zorko 59, Watson & Swallow 80. But I did get 2329 after being predicted to get 2500.

MightyDonsFC · 04/05/2014 at 21:03

2282, Zorko, Webster, Jaensch and Merrett amongst the spuds

Pat · 04/05/2014 at 21:25

what time do we reckon the podcast will be out tonight?

    Brandon2416 · 04/05/2014 at 21:39

    Hopefully soon

Michael · 04/05/2014 at 21:55

Trade idea this week –
Sam Mitchell to Schoenmakers to free up some cash to punt Pyke for Big Boy – sound trade?
Only had $3K in the bank as I did double upgrade last week!
No other def rookies worth looking at that will help me with the bye this week.
Schooey should be a nice little cash cow anyway, could even be a D5 or D6 keeper the way things are going!
