PODCAST: One bye to go you ripper

Published by Jock on

Supercoach 2014 podcastWe’re nearly there community

We have just one more bye to navigate and then we’re footloose and fancy free for the rest of the fantasy footy season.

We have a whole stack of rookies who have a round 10 bye so part of the drama this week will be choosing the right boys to take out to slaughter. The other big challenge for all of us is trading the right premiums into our team.

Tune in as Higgo, The Crouching One and Wayno help guide the community through the remainder of this bye period.

How’s your team holding up through the byes community? Let’s get stuck into this weeks podcast.

thoughts on trades this week community
have 19 trades left with 330k in the bank
Option A: Aish -> Stevie J (currently have 5 premos in middle which are selwood, pendels, ablett, libba and beams)
Option B: Higgins -> Boomer, Dahlhaus or wait a week on parker (currently have 4 premos in the fwd danger, roughy, zorko and gray)
Option C: Cutler -> Hurn (thought popped into mind when I saw Fantasy Freakos tweet)
cheers community.

Burnman

Zorko is not a premium – he is getting traded this week bloody burnman. Stevie J will drop in price

henry

had gastro.

Neilsy

Zorko the c?nt

Kris

Steve J got hit with a 1 week suspension.

Jontyone

Looking forward to the podcast and Crouching one!
Thoughts on
Cunnigham>Hartung
Flipper>Cameron
Not sure about the last trade will have around 300k and have suckling, Ambrose and
Who I want to get rid of

Ben

One more week for the suckling pig jock, then I think bring in mcveigh. Suckling BE is only 67. That way you have another body on the field this week, save a trade and get in a proven supercoach veteran for next week

Dinkum Davo

But Simpsons be is 61…
Who is better Simpson or walker?

Pots

Ambrose still has plenty of cash to make with a negative BE.

Pots

Sorry, low BE. Looking at older stats.

Daniel

His BE is 20

lostlarrikin

3 trades, the two you mentioned plus Jocks suggestion

Michael

This week's trade options:

1. Robertson out, Hartung in
JKH out, Harvey in.
$7.4K left

2. Robertson out, Hartung in
JKH out, Wingard in.
$100.1 K left

3. Robertson out, Hartung in
JKH out, Matera in.
$121.5 K left

1, 2 or 3? Or others I haven't considered? Currently have $109.3K in the bank.

Also, sitting around the 4,300th mark – am I still in the running for $50K or too far out? Currently 1,247 points behind leader, means I need an extra 100 points per round extra on average, which sounds a lot, but I know the current leaders will probably run out of trades, so injuries could play a part.

Thanks for your input fellow Jocksters!

Michael

Leaning towards 3 at the moment – Matera might just be a nice POD….maybe not now though…

Kev

Matera could be a huge POD, only in 1.68% of teams. Looking at his stats though he doesn't get a huge amount of the pill, a true small forward. His scores are very reliant on goals kicked (a la, jamie elliott…)

All that said, I think you're still in with a shot for 50k. Need to make a few left of field choices and this has a better than even chance of coming off

wes

I like option 2… not sure how consistent Wingard has been as not on my radar.
My first thought was option 1 actually, as am keen to get boomer onboard myself. But if Wingard has gone ok consistency wise… the 100K difference between he and boomer is tempting to keep

I cannot see Matera being consistent enough… though tempting after the weekend's efforts.

Billy

if you are looking for points then option 1 would surely be youe best bet. Boomer is very consistent plus the odd 150+ like this week. Chad is good but for some reason SC hates him and i cant see him getting anywhere near boomer each week

MightyDonsFC

Boomer isn't consistent!

WombatsFC

Consistently up and down

Sleepy

Hello Jock and community I am bewildered. Can someone please explain the supercoach scoring system? I thought it was based on what you do with the ball. Abletts stats were 127 with disposal efficiency of 70.3 and gets 184 supercoach points. In the same game Newnes stats 130 with disposal efficiency of 82.8 and gets 115 supercoach points. I just don't get it. This not a bitch I don't have either in my team.

SCaddict

So many more stats go into SC scores than DT…goal assists, I50s, clearances, clangers, contested marks, marks I50, intercept marks, handball receives the list goes on and on.

Still I agree some scores do leave you scratching your head at times. I guess at the end of the day we just have to trust the Champion Data boys just like we trust our GP or better half. Ok maybe that isn't such a great idea! ๐Ÿ™‚

LukTon

On top of SC's vast range of disposal/possession/scoring types, it also weights them on how influential they were on the result of the game.

For example, let's use the Gold Coast game from the weekend. Why did Gary Ablett score so high and Newnes score much lower? This can be discovered when taking into account the first quarter of the game.

Gold Coast burst out to an early lead, and St Kilda never threatened to catch up. SC would determine that the game was won and lost in the first quarter, probably after Gold Coast were ahead by 4 or 5 goals. All player scores in this part of the game would have been scaled up dramatically, and vase versa for the rest of the game. Who was on fire in that all important first quarter: Newnes or Ablett?

DT does not take this in to account; all stats in the dying stages of a game count for the same, even if the match is on the line, or was well and truly over like in the Gold Coast – St Kilda game.

Hope this helps as well!

Lord Relton Roberts

there are a hell of a lot of other statistics involved in supercoach scoring (e.g. whether marks are from opposition kicks or team mates, whether the ball was in contention, handball recieves… etc)

MightyDonsFC

Jack Steven or Michael Barlow?

throttlefinger

Barlow seems a bit injury prone. Two years running. Deadly kicker but think Fyfe is the baller on Freo. Stevens getting it done on a subpar team. Plus Montagna always going to get the harder tag.

Kev

Neither. Both have the bye this week. Steven just starting to get back into it after his injury lay off. Personally I'd look beyond these two

The Ranger

Why only those two?
There's quite a few other options at that price.

lostlarrikin

Avoiding freo prems where possible, been burnt by Lyin resting policy before

Kris

Steven

oliverfisher

Thinking
Dunstan, Zorko, JKH out
Selwood, Wingard and Cameron in

Or should i look to get rid of Sheed and bring in Hartung?

MightyDonsFC

Why zorko out? He had gastro give him a break

Matt

Exactly, i'm going to be holding onto Zorko. He should come back strong after the bye

oliverfisher

didn't realise he had gastro, thanks for the info. Will probably keep him now

headING-UP

Lock that in Oliver

Alex

Pretty stoked you used my Ross Lyon quote Jock, happy to help mate.

Lord Relton Roberts

what do we think of hartung??
or even this cameron shenton guy running of half back for sainters (got 19 players already so its not imperative that shento plays this week)

Michael

I'd wait a week with Shenton, see if named after bye round. Also Saints have tough run over next 3 weeks with Collingwood, Geelong, Port, then West Coast after that – very tough on rookies, that run of games!

Pots

Wright out for Parker or Dahlhaus?

Michael

Parker for sure, I'll be looking to get him in post bye.

Pots

Playing bottom team and bye is not an issue

SCaddict

Then I'd go 'Peter' Parker for sure.

@TheNoLanguage

Parker

The Regular

I brought in acres this week and from early reports he is looking like a dead m10 (hopefully for not out too long)

What are the communities thoughts on Cameron Shenton opening up dpp mid/fwd at m9

Michael

yep looking at him too, but after bye.

joshpapworth

saw him today he is getting scans tomorrow thinks he may be out with ligement damage for 4 weeks

neil the nail

hello community, in dire help here, dont know who to trade in, either swallow or jaensch???
thoughts appreciated

Crackin

Like swallow looks like a must have in the back line jaensch’s price is arousing

Kev

swallow

WombatsFC

Both. I reckon Jeansch is a keeper for D6 and Swallow at 4 or 5

joshpapworth

depends if money no problem get swallow he will avg better
but jaensch still 95-100 avg for rest of the year

Jackson

I'd go with swallow, but jaensch is a definitely good option if you wanna save a bit of coin

rob

Supercoach paige are good for qtr by qtr scores. Then info isnt timed well and generally is too late or stating the obvious. Jocks team are far more entertaining. Ahead of the game and much more thoroughly researched stats and a much wiser community!!! Love the podcasts jock!

@TheNoLanguage

Ok Community. Finally the last week of trade carnage and here we go. Any input/advice would be amazing.
As it stands my team:

B – Swallow, Hibberd (B), R.Shaw (B), Jaensch, Suckling, McDonald (Georgiou (B), Gardiner(B))
M – Ablett, Pendles, Beams, McVeigh (B), Watson (B), Cotchin, Crouch, Taylor (B) (Hallahan, Acres (B))
R – Sandi (B), Lobbe (Derickx (B), Thurlow)
F – Danger, Boomer, Pavlich (B), Wingard, Zorko (B), Fasolo (JKH (B), Lloyd)

Immediate concerns are how to navigate the backline carnage. To upgrade Suckling or do I pull the trigger on Shaw (with the bye) who has made 120k?
Will Lobbe play this week and if not, do I upgrade to a Goldstein or Sauce?

Trades I am thinking this week are:
R.Shaw > J.Bartel
Lobbe > Goldstein
JKH > Cameron
Leaves me with 18 on field if Fasolo gets up. Would appreciate some community TLC!

The Mullet

IMO Goldy is pretty good value at the moment, but I'd hold off ruck trades if possible. You can bet that the week after you trade out Lobbe, Sandilands will get injured or be rested in preparation for the finals.

Scott

I wouldn’t be suprised if the only game Sandi misses this year is Rd 23.

Depends on your trades left but if you feel that if Lobbe needs to go and you have a discounted premium you think will return to premium scoring, I’d say go for it!

Holty

It seems you are struggling to get 18 on the park so I would wait 1 more week with Lobbe as he shuld be playing this week. If I was you, I wouldn't get rid of anyone playing this week.

@TheNoLanguage

Thanks Holty. Might hold off on Lobbe but if he doesn't get up with the calf Goldy comes in!

Crackin

Thoughts on jaensch running out the season with a 100 avg?

dean

I doubted him from the start after he tonned up 3 times. but he kept on doing it. so i dont know but he came back on weekend and scored 98 see him as a pretty solid pick tbh

Scott

Should never have listened to the 3 to 4 weeks injury prognosis, traded him to Burgoyne. Now want to go back, thinking Langdon to Jaensch. Live and learn, trade wasted.
He’s a back line clearance player and for a 110k ave at sub $400k, he’s a bargain, doh!

WombatsFC

I feel your pain Scott I made the same Jaensch to Burgoyne trade based on the 3-weeks out with broken ribs story. I'm gonna get him back this week for Langford or George. Jaensch the perfect D6 although he did struggle the week before his injury

joshpapworth

i shld never got rid of landon

SCaddict

Not personally a believer myself. If you got on him early on all well and good but wouldn't be falling over myself to get him in now.

Would be looking at the likes or Bartel, Walker, Hibberd, Swallow etc instead.

Kris

The difference is +100k though. And not a big gap in scoring potential.

Dean

Yea i Myself have yet to rid of Old McDonald, Im thinking it would be a nice upgrade to do Mcdonald to Jaench for a cheap + good scoring output upgrade.

neil the nail

hello community, in dire help here, dont know who to trade in, either swallow or jaensch???

Matt

Get Swallow

Matt

What do you guys think of Bews from Geelong and his job security?

Cozza

I would be concerned about his JS. Chris Scott likes to give his rookies a brief taste of AFL footy then bring in another rookie for a taste. Unless they are a standout in every game they play, unlikely Scotty will play him enough to generate enough cash.

I will be waiting until he is named for his 3rd game before bringing him in.

Rocksta

Agreed.
If you go through the list of juniors Scotty has played this year, most rarely get more than 2-3 games in a row.
I think bringing him in this week is very risky.

Scott

This is really a tough call, depends on whether he’s your D9 or a spec D10, who may be back later this year and provide some scores and/or cash. Take the risk and carry him? What other option would you consider as a def downgrade option this week?
Esp for those like me pursuing an upgrade/downgrade combo each week to make their premo squad.!

The Ranger

Bloody gold Jock.
I was in danger of over exciting before the arousal curve but now I'm confident I'll hold off for a while longer.

@TheNoLanguage

Anyone looking at Sam Docherty from the Blues? Averaged 80 first two games and priced at 285k.

SCaddict

Too late in the game to be considering mid-pricers in my view.

Should only be downgrading to rookies or upgrading to premos at this advanced stage of proceedings, unless you still have 20 plus trades and feel up for a midseason speculative dabble.

joshpapworth

agreed

wes

If there are no rookies on the watch-list, then maybe. But surely there are cheaper options out there to make a buck on and give same points output

Daniel

I'm thinking Hanley to Docherty and Crouch to Selwood. Hmm?

SCaddict

I wouldn't burn off Hanley for a risky midpricer. Is there anyone else you could cull to get Jelwood in? JKH perhaps?

Scott

Totally agree, it’s round 9 of 23, Hanley’s had his injury problems and his team has been struggling.
Let’s not forget Hanley is a proven scorer, give the chance he will score well.
If you have him, hang tough, ask yourself why so many SCers have him on their watch list.

SCaddict

Indeed he's on my watch list too. I'm still waiting for the Kolo Kidd to fully ripen and then I may be able to do a straight swap with Hanley in a few more weeks.

Voila a $197K rookie turns straight into a proven premo defender!

WombatsFC

Hanley started to struggle last year when he got a tag, the second 2-thirds of the season his average was under 87 after being at 113 after the first 8-games. This year he is getting a shutdown player on him almost every week and his scores have suffered.
The only reason for keeping him now would be if you don't have any trades left.

tyzsb

Trades this week

Swap Zorko into midfield and Wingard into forward then…

Robertson to Billy Hartaung

Zorko to Rory Sloane or Joel Selwood (Which one?)

JKH to Tex Walker with 50k in the bank and 10 trades left with easy opponents in my league coming up meaning leaving trades for that round….

Would appreciate any advice!!!

Derek

How far away is Bock?

Kev

Played a few games in the NEAFL and is getting through okay, he was close this week but held back once again.

I'd take this as a solid sign he will be carefully managed throughout the year and won't be stringing a lot of games together. Will likely play a key position and for 200k, I'd be waiting until his third game unless you're absolutely desperate for cash

Deadly

Did not play in the two's this week due to leg problems so unfortunately we may have to give him wide berth this year?

Anthony

Hi guys so im thinking really hard who to trade out and who to get in. I got 3 trades to do this week please help :L
B – McVeigh, Swallow, Burgoyne, Bartel, Kolodjashnij, Cutler, ( Flynn, D Fuller, M)
M- Ablett, Watson, Beams, Johnson J, Fyfe, Rockliff, Dunstan, Crouch (Acres, Spina. A)
R – Sandilands Grundy (Currie, Nankervis)
F- Dangerfield, Martin, Roughead, lloyd, Merrett, Z, Fasolo (Ambrose, Honeychurch)

Was thinking of bringing in Charlie Cameron but mainly struggling on Foward line

Anthony

as i got $314,400 in the bank

The Regular

dunstan to selwood

yes I do hav bacon

Agree
Then add crouch to shenton
and Grundy to minson

Next week ambrose to Cameron
Merret to tex

Anthony

What about hurtung?

yes I do hav bacon

Hartung might be good if you need players on the field this week but I like shentons DP edgell ability, maybe Lloyd to shents in a couple of weeks?

The Mullet

Great ideas once again from Jock, Higgo and Crouching, backed up by solid reasoning. But sometimes when I'm studying my team and planning trades I think…….well geez…….I wonder what Jock would do here. He made it clear that Buddy should not be considered. But I found this bloke in my team who I reckon has topped out. He would be a straight swap……Higgins. Hmmmmm.
As far as generating cash, I think we are slaughtering a few good rookies too early. Some of the cash cows really are cows with guns http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIvndWcMuAM that can stay a while longer yet.

Rocksta

JKH to Cameron, and Crouch to Jelwood.
Had $130K in the bank which allowed this to happen.
No more Rookies left in the mids to spud up the place………………I'm feeling better already.
This weeks events have set me on a rampage to cull every on field Rookie in my team within the next 3 weeks.

Emmanuel

Sticky situation for me. Have wasted too many trades already on dud rookies and injuries. Only 14 left. Is that low for this time of the season?

26k in the bank at the moment.

I’ve got Cyril on the bench. It was either him or Parker earlier. Chose wrong. Did the same with Dixon and Franklin. I wanted Parker but he has the bye this week so looking at R. Gray. Need to make some cash elsewhere.

I have Dunstan and Roberston in the middle that I want to get rid of and bring in Selwood. I can’t go one and one down for Selwood. Other option is Polec to Selwood and Roberston or Dunstan to Hartung.

Any ideas?

Scott

14 trades may be low if you still have 5 or more premiums to complete your team, considering injuries, etc.
Think Franklin will benefit from Swans completed backline, hold.
Dixon is getting ruck time, but his injury prone and seems the coach wants him as a key fwd, hold for now.
Rioli & hamstrings are long term relationships, best fwd to trade.
Pole has the best JS & scoring ability, so would suggest a DG & UG on the other too.

Scott

Re Franklin, completed forward line, doh!

Emmanuel

I am 9 premiums from completing my team. But that is being harsh. I have a few players that I don’t consider premium but could be borderline.

I have already removed Dixon and Franklin when they got injured.

Need to get Selwood in somehow.

I have a feeling I won’t be finishing with 18 premiums on the park come season end…

Scott

Percentage of teams who actually do complete will be interesting.
I’ve got 9 trades left and am 2 short, could burn another 3 trades and I’m there but need to preserve trades. Maybe see how far I can go with Langdon.

Emmanuel

You’ve done well if you’re only 2 short. You had luck with injuries? I tend to trade out injured players than hold onto them which burns trades. Such as Dixon, Fasolo, Franklin and Mitchell. I could have had three more trades. Cyril will cost me another one.

I also got rid of Tyson, JKH too early and made the mistake of including Michie and McDonough earlier.

Steven

Thoughts on S.Hurn?

SCaddict

Yeah there's a reason his name rhymes with burn! ๐Ÿ™‚

Do yourself a favour and don't get sucked in. Far too injury prone in recent times. Also only averaged over 90 once in the past five years to be that SC relevant in terms of premo defenders imho.

Jackson

There's a LOT more reliable defenders out there. Walker, bartel, mcveigh and the likes if you can afford them. The risk of a body part falling off during a game and giving you another 7 is significantly less with them!

Flacid Jaff

I like him.
He's cheap and will roam around more this season because of WC's recruiting of other rebounding defenders. Has a killer boot so they will look to get the ball in his hands so he can drill it inside 50 to the forwards, which is big SC points! ONLY get him if you think he'll be a top 10 defender! I think he will. Hurn will finish up a D6 or D7 for me, depending on how I finish up trade/money wise!

Cameron

Defender Rookies? Bews looks to be the only option, my defence is set, just need to downgrade Suckling to a rookie(preferably one that will play). Any future prospects?

The Regular

I’m in same boat. Someone just needs to tell me Jed Bews Is nailed on! He isn’t though is he? ๐Ÿ™

Gold Coast Blues

I made a guts move and brought him in this week without even playing a game. Paid off, just hope he at least gets to 3 games. He looked OK – I think he will play.

Kev

Discussion above re: bews. JS is shaky as geelong youngsters get a taste of senior footy for a few games then go back out and another gets his shot.

Wait until he is on the bubble

Garglesnarf FC

Cats have the Kolodashnij twin and Schroder to also come in as they are both killing it in the VFL. Christensen is also due back round 11. Do not expect Bews to play more than another 2 games, and you wont be disappointed. If does you can be pleasantly surprised.

Kris

cheers for the info lad! was keeping a keen eye on bews

Captain joc

@ crouching one

Boomer Harvey 120k cheaper then gray? Are you sure crouching one

R.Gray 541k

B.Harvey 517k

Fly kick yourself out of it mate

Captain joc

100*

Azmataz

Great podcast guys! Very funny and entertaining.

I am moving on Dunstan, Polec and JKH for Cameron, Selwood and one other. Only have $405k left and can get in a mid or fwd. I am thinking of getting in a bargain fwd this week, such as a Buddy or Reiwoldt (despite them having their bye). Any suggestions?

djb

one word….tex!!!!!!

se4no

not yet… give him another week to prove he's fit for it!

Kev

Agree. Arousing stats though. His price won't be moving for another week

piewood1

Tough round! No Rocky & very little Zorko…. still I thought after last week that 1860 would be a good score, as last round 1744 got me 8918 position for the week. I lost my league match by 14 & finished 67,535 this week also dropped from 6,319 to 9501 in the overall rankings & will be a player short this week LOL

Tom.H

I think i'm in big trouble…. only have 12 trades left…..
Am 1 player away from having a full premo team so idk where I really stand. Hoping to now go into hibernation and only use another 6 trades up until finals

Garglesnarf FC

Assuming you need 2 trades to get full premo (1up, 1down) then you are in a great position as you dont need to do anything except the odd downgrade to build warchest or injury trade.

I am very envious, I have 14 left and only 19 premo.

Pat

what do we think of the following

Dunstan > Selwood
JKH > Wingard
M.Crouch > Hartung

Is there any other forwards that i should look at. Already have Danger, Dusty, Dalhous, Parker
Cheers

BCHawks

if you have the money go Gray instead of Wingard, other than that your trades are fine.

The Mullet

I agree with BC on Wingard. I like him, but I want to see a solid upturn in form before I bring him in.

Pat

Thanks for all the input guys !!
ive decided to go the same trades but JKH> Gray

BCHawks

my biggest regrets this year so far are trading out Landon and Tyson to early.

The Mullet

Its an easy trap to fall into, especially when they look like they have topped out , and then kick on again. I've got a feeling in my gut that Polec could do the same thing and make another 50k. But when you see a premo at their lowest price for the year, somebody worth lotsa $ has to get led to the slaughterhouse. Sorry Polec, I think you have more upside, but as they said in The Godfather….. "its not personal, its just business"

Kris

Im there with you with Tyson. Nerves got the better of me

Gold Coast Blues

Absolutely filthy this week. My own fault, but I did not know you couldn't reverse trades of players who hadn't played yet once the first game has been played. So on Friday, while mucking around with structures, I bought Dixon in for Higgins who obviously wasn't playing. In my mind – I wanted Boomer. Stuck with the Dixon trade now and he looks bloody stinking. Jock fetch me a beer please and Crouching, please fly kick Dixon in to shape, for at least one more week before I have to burn a trade to rid my team of him. Kick Boomer for going big and making me feel worse too.

The Filth

Take it from me.
It’s okay being ‘absolutely filthy’….or even plain Filthy.

SCaddict

Yeah even Wayno has got caught out on that ole 'can't reverse trades' chestnut.

At least Dixon can give you some ruck cover if you have a DPP rookie on your ruck bench. Now that you have him I think you have to stick fat and hope he comes good.

Boomer is very up and down and can suck folk in when he hits one of his purple patches, only to disappear a few weeks later. Scores can be as volatile as a KPP.

Kangas were also beating up on the dismal Lions operating with a skeleton crew on the weekend that allowed him to get off the chain.

Cyril

Could I get some opinions on my side pls

Enright, suckling, bartel,

Swallow Cutler, Langford. Georgio, Cutler

Ablett. Pendles. Libba. Beams

Selwood. Polec. Tyson. Dunstan. Acres. Robertson

Mcevoy. Sandilands. Derrickx. Thurlow

Buddy. Danger. N reiwoldt

Fasolo. Martin. Jhk. Ambrose. Lloyd

Have 445k in the bank. My thoughts this week are Jhk to Cameron

Then dunstan to sloane

Maybe only use two trades. Then suckling to mcveigh next week

Thoughts appreciated

Kev

Few too many starting rooks at this stage of the game. Plenty of money in the bank so I'd be looking at going bang bang.

Dunstan up to Sloane is handy, then maybe a JKH to premium (Parker, Gray, Dahl etc)

Cameron will be on the bubble next week, as will Shenton from the saints. Few downgrade options to get your cash up again

Cyril

Thanks. Kev. That was my plan. Problem is, if I go dunstan to sloane that leaves me under 500 k to spend on a forward upgrade. Can’t afford a gray, Harvey, Parker etc. closest to anything decent is bruest

I can go dunstan to omeara and then Jhk to gray? Then I can’t upgrade suckling next week though. He should still make money next week anyways

WombatsFC

Wingard is about 40k cheaper than Bruest and Port might increase the amount of time he spends in the middle over the back half of the season. IMO that's more upside than Bruest. Jaensch is also as cheap as he will get and was pumping out regoular 110+ in defense before getting injured. Cutler to Jaensch is a good use of your cash.

john snow

thanks for that wombat, Im thinking of just going Dunstan to Sloane and then JHK to Wingard and saving a trade. Then next week I can get a premium backline player like Mcveigh

Mike

Did anyone see wtf happened with Salem ? How did he go from 25-45 in a quarter to 31 for a whole game!? Screwed me right up. Running out of cash now with only Langford, Cutler to cull. Need a bargain mid to happen soon.

pieofgod

Cameron Shenton…avg 73…99 v GCS yesterday. Bye this round so maybe hold till next week unless you have enough NON blue dots on the field then jump on

WombatsFC

Hartung should be named and probably play a full game in the middle, half of hawks squad is in hospital. 117k they don't come much cheaper

Kris

Greetings community. My puzzler is about to break so would love to hear some thoughts.

My goal is to trade Trent west and also get in jelwood (he’s too cheap to ignore).

THOUGH ruck options aren’t to great. Sauce would be my first option BUT it will leave me 20k ish short of trading kelly to jelwood.

Which leaves options of McEvoy Goldy cox and lobbe. BUT none instill too much confidence in me.

Thoughts?

Kris

Was also planning on using all three trades and trading laidler to jaensch

pieofgod

Downgrade Laidler –> Maybe Nth Def J Tippett…should free up cash for Sauce+Jelwood

Kris

Cheers pie! I’m on the same page as you regarding removing laidler.

Kris

Latest thought,

West>Sauce
Kelly>jelwood
Dunstan>jaensch via McDonald)

Team now looks like
Def—> Hanley, hooker, jaensch, Simpson, swallow, McVeigh, (laidler langdon)
Mid—> gablett libba pendles beams macrae polec jelwood McDonald (m crouch Taylor)
Ruc—> Sandi Jacobs (Currie thurlow)
Fwd—> danger dahlhaus dusty zorko fasolo SLloyd (ambrose JKH)

30k I’m bank…. And plans to upgrade jkh next week to someone like nroo or lecras

Captain joc

Goldy and mcevoy I would have a look at I brough goldy in last week as he has some very easy games for the rest of the season

Kris

Cheers Boss!
But are you not concerned with goldy going up against minson and sauce in the first two rounds of finals (rd 21+22)?

Jacob

Thoughts on Sandilands. Ross said hed definately be rested either side if bye and probably later in the year. Thinking of going Sandi to minson to save a doughnut this week and probably later in the year.

Kev

Saving a one week donut for a bloke averaging 117? You're mad! Keep on riding him until his turf toe comes back

Cyril

I think he will definitely get a rest. That’s why I will b keeping Derickx on the pine to take up the slack. Scoring ok and increasing in value slowly

Agree with Cyril. If you have enough to cover 18 for bye I wouldn't trade Sandi out until he is not named, even then I would be reluctant to do so given Freo's run home. Sandi is blitzing and does not look like slowing down. Yes they may tactically rest him but I bet that will be much deeper into season depending upon final 4 chances etc as he has bye for a rest this week. Also don't forget he will get a two week break in the round that is spread over two weeks in late July.

Thoughts on Le Cras, community? Rubbed out for this week, but was getting a lot of mid time before his arm break/suspension. Too injury prone, maybe?

Kris

Him playing mid gives a higher ceiling. But we Dont have a lot to go by. The three full games he’s played have been vs gws melb and wbd.
That said he’s already had his yearly injury and would be a solid pod in your fwd line.
I know next week I will be seriously considering him or Nroo to be upgraded from JKH.

Kris

Latest thought,

West>Sauce
Kelly>jelwood
Dunstan>jaensch via McDonald)

Team now looks like
Def—> Hanley, hooker, jaensch, Simpson, swallow, McVeigh, (laidler langdon)
Mid—> gablett libba pendles beams macrae polec jelwood McDonald (m crouch Taylor)
Ruc—> Sandi Jacobs (Currie thurlow)
Fwd—> danger dahlhaus dusty zorko fasolo SLloyd (ambrose JKH)

30k I’m bank…. And plans to upgrade jkh next week to someone like nroo or lecras

Hey guys what are people thoughts on Cameron Shenton? Scored 99 and is on the bubble could be a good downgrade option next week.

Kris

has bye this week. Only consider him next round. But he does look alright for a cheapie this far into the season. And should have decent JS

julz

My forward line looks like a disaster zone, kinda glad Bris and saints have the bye this week so i don’t have to watch Zorko the Craptastic and NRoo stink it up once again!
What’s everyone else doing with these 2, bearing in mind I bought both of them at quite a high price?

Take 'em to Cash Converters you might be able to swap them for a Gameboy

Cheers LMD – definitely some food for thought

Sydney, North and Adelaide players all look like good options all of a sudden

Not bad- but arent finals played over 4 weeks not 3?

shallots

Just a note- You have put BRIS v GEEL rnd 23 but GEEL v ADL rnd 23 and ADL v STK rnd 23

Higgo please ask your mum to choose the song next week, this weeks one was rubbish.

Hi Guys,

I’ve still got T Mitchell on my bench. I finally decided to get rid of him and he pulls out a bloody 64 touch game in the NEAFL. Do you reckon he’s worth holding until after the buy?

Cheers

Nifty

You got rid of him or he's on your Bench?

Eagler

I’ve culled him but thinking about reversing the trade.

Cyril

I’d b giving him one last chance after a game like that if I were u

Mike

Got rid of him myself last round. I was thinking he was a big vest risk coming back in and high BE. Not sure wtf Jack was the sub last week?? Cunningham hasn’t been doing much, must be doing forward tags cause he hasn’t found the footy, but doesn’t get dropped. Mitchell will get plenty of games you’d think, but that’s a lot of cash on the bench if he’s not picked week by week. Mind you if anyone goes out injured I’ll think about jumping back on.

shallots

as crouching would say PI' HI' O' or pi55 him off as we would say ๐Ÿ™‚

He is too slow, too selfish and just has the wrong attitude for the Sydney style. You just have to watch him and see why he got vested AND then rested the next week. I called it back at the time and traded him out. He needs another club coz if Sydney havent been able to straighten his attitude he'll be stuck in the 2nds for a long time.

It’s really important we didn’t over excite on the arousal curve….lol
