BCHawks · 29/05/2014 at 21:54

Can't wait to listen to this so excited!

Tommy · 29/05/2014 at 21:56

Superb effort Jock mate!

Tommy · 29/05/2014 at 22:00

Swan or Goddard or Priddis as m8? Thoughts

    scano · 29/05/2014 at 22:07

    Goddard or Swan

    BlueBallsFC · 29/05/2014 at 22:07


      Matt · 29/05/2014 at 23:08

      Yeah Goddard

    OldOcker · 30/05/2014 at 00:34

    If you are looking to trade one of them in this week I would be looking at either Priddis or Goddard as both have a breakeven in the 50's
    Swan has a B/E of 146 and may well come down further in price.

Ray · 29/05/2014 at 22:13

Should I get Watson or Goddard for polec

    BCHawks · 29/05/2014 at 22:14


      Matt · 29/05/2014 at 23:09

      Toss a coin mate

    OldOcker · 30/05/2014 at 00:30


    Jambo · 30/05/2014 at 10:48

    Goddard. Better value.

Mitch · 29/05/2014 at 22:20

Hey community,
Looking to move Josh Kelly on this week, wondering who you would pick out of Cameron Shenton and Kane Mitchell?

    Jambo · 30/05/2014 at 10:49

    Shenton, his job security is better than Mitchell.

Remy · 29/05/2014 at 22:24

Langford to Jaensch? Or save the trade. 15 trades left.
What do you think?

    OldOcker · 30/05/2014 at 00:51

    Not a Jaensch fan and Langford has been used to tag but still has achievable B/E of 43.
    I would be saving that trade and see what both players do this week. You need to be looking at a top 8 defender and I don't think Jaensch is in that category.

    Cam · 30/05/2014 at 16:26

    Hold. Aim higher than Jaensch.

      Azmataz · 30/05/2014 at 19:30

      I agree. If you don't have Jaensch yet, don't get him in – you can do better.
      If you have him – hold onto him as he is good enough.

GarglesnarfFC · 29/05/2014 at 22:55

Save, hawks have GWS this week. However, with a new coach at Hawthorn for the year all Hawks will need watching as some will benefit, some won't and some won't change.

    Jezz · 30/05/2014 at 10:17

    For the year?
    You're simply trolling now…

      Stumped · 30/05/2014 at 11:00

      I don't believe Gargles is trolling.

      Clarko might be out for quite some time based on what his syndrome rquires for recovery

      GarglesnarfFC · 30/05/2014 at 16:56

      Not at all Jezz. I have had this syndrome and it took me 4-6 months to get over it. I find it bizarre that everyone expects him back in a few weeks. Stress is a major trigger for it, and given what an AFL coach goes through I find it hard to believe that he can make a full recovery before September without making himself sick again.

      So don't be surprised if he is not back as coach in any match day capacity this year.

        Captain joc · 01/06/2014 at 02:16

        I was listening to a radio station and they were talking to a doctor about his condition saying it could take anywhere between 3 months and 2 years to recover from it I wouldn’t be surprised if all in all he never coaches again

Branks · 29/05/2014 at 23:04

Is Queen Elizabeth going to join the sunday podcast Jock?

    Branks · 29/05/2014 at 23:05

    this sunday podcast

Donavan · 29/05/2014 at 23:09

Shenton/Lewis Taylor/Hartung/Ambrose

Which 2 do e think will score the best this week?

2 will start, and 2 will be benched.

    OldOcker · 30/05/2014 at 00:23

    Lewis Taylor and Shenton.

      Remy · 30/05/2014 at 09:59

      I'd say play Hartung.

      I can see him getting a lot of free space (as he did against the Saints)
      From what I've seen Hartung plays well when there's a lot of space for him to move.

      I reckon put the E on one of Shenton or Taylor (as they play before Hartung)

        Azmataz · 30/05/2014 at 19:31

        Shenton and Taylor. Hartung is highly likely to get the vest.

    Donavan · 30/05/2014 at 23:07

    Thanks for the feedback gents.

    I started ambrose, with Shenton (Emerg), and have just switch S.Lloyd on for Ambrose to take advantage of Shentons 100points.

    I am leaning towards starting Taylor as my M8, with Hartung (Emerg) – vest is an issue because I think they will give Simpkin a full game. Dont have the loophole luxury in the mids, as Acres has already collected his zero.

      Azmataz · 31/05/2014 at 06:27

      Damn I wish did the same. I have Shenton's 100 on the bench as an emergency – made a last minute swap with bloody Taylor..Oh well..

Paul · 29/05/2014 at 23:52

Thoughts on Kane Mitchell? Job Security?

    Donavan · 29/05/2014 at 23:56

    I'd prefer my job security, and I work in the automotive industry.

    That means – not secure, wouldnt go near him.

    OldOcker · 30/05/2014 at 00:25

    Too risky for mine in a very good team.

    wes · 30/05/2014 at 07:56

    Dom Cassisi (knee), Angus Monfries (ankle) and Hamish Hartlett (suspended) all out of the side.
    Paul Stewart, Andrew Moore and Jake Neade come into the side.

    Considering this news, I differ in opinion to the above. as an M8 depending on your circumstances I reckon he may be a goer as opposed to other options.
    Will he last whole year – maybe not. None of the above are long term injuries. But he is there long enough to make some $$ off him still

      Azmataz · 30/05/2014 at 19:32

      Pass. Too much to pay for someone who has low JS

Daniel · 30/05/2014 at 00:42

I'm trading Polec to Shenton and Langdon to Simpson. Then enough cash to go Taylor to Parker next week.

    OldOcker · 30/05/2014 at 00:58

    Hi Daniel, Sound trading mate, Taylor may well be worth keeping a little longer after Parker's score tonight, Taylor has a low B/E of 3.
    Parker's B/E next week will be about 113. (Lost about $3,000 in value tonight.)

dognino · 30/05/2014 at 01:00

Read a post a week or two ago that someone was looking for the stats interface to check players history.

If you go to the 2014 game strategy tab up top, there is a thread " higgenater is back" inside is a link to the stats interface tool.


    OldOcker · 30/05/2014 at 01:42

    Hi dognino, Yes I think that was Wombat FC. I will let him know when I see him online.


Captain joc · 30/05/2014 at 01:12

Got walker, cutler and georgiou in my backline was originally gonna trade Langdon to Shenton but looks like I will cop a donut that way could swing swallow or Langdon into and somehow get shenton thoughts?

    OldOcker · 30/05/2014 at 01:50

    Ouch Captain, I have a similar problem and may have to cop a doughnut which hurts. I don''t have a midfield-defender swing in the middle. I still have Tom Clurey because I didn't want to waste a trade to get rid of him.
    If you can swing someone back to cover I would be doing that to get Shenton.

      Captain joc · 30/05/2014 at 02:45

      Well my plan was Langdon to shenton, Higgins to buddy
      Then next Langford to premo fwd and have about 100k leftover but I’ve already done the Higgins to buddy trade I could do cutler to shenton via swallow and then next week Langdon to fwd premo with no money leftover after that and only have to upgrade one mid

        OldOcker · 30/05/2014 at 13:26

        That sounds very good to me mate, Go for it.

julz · 30/05/2014 at 01:48

Wondering what people’s thoughts were on Buddy tonight? I only got to see a bit of first quarter, how much impact did he have really? I see Buddy ended up eith 4.3 and tonned up in SC but figured that wouldn’t have been hard to do seeing sydney poleaxed geelong.

Is Buddy now worth looking at getting in, will go up 50k though probably. Obviously this wk was the best to get Buddy price-wise personally i avoided him as wasn’t convinced and i already have NRoo and Zorko spudding it in fwd line. Now having 2nd thoughts re: Buddy even for a fwd loophole option down the track (BTW i havent had buddy in my team

at all this year)


Just wondering other people’s opinions

    dognino · 30/05/2014 at 02:01

    He played a pretty good game, made a lot of contests. still a big risk tho as kurt 'made of glass' tippet could go down at any stage with an injury and then buddy will get double teamed by defenders again, and cats had a pretty weak back line tonight

    wes · 30/05/2014 at 08:00

    I want to know if you got him in before lock out?
    He played great so are you crying or happy??

      julz · 30/05/2014 at 10:48

      Nah wes i didn’t get him have planned to do a double downgrade while there r rookies on the horizon.
      SC website was down last night anyway after teams dropped thank god for the app on my phone only just managed to get bews into my team, fat lot of good that did with his huge score!
      Might have to look at buddy next week pretty much a straight swap from Higgins but worried i could b going from one burnman to another (although Higgins has repaid the faith so far)

        wes · 30/05/2014 at 12:33

        My trades this week were going to be Macrae and Higgins out for SHenton and Luke Parker and a lot of $$.
        I changed my mind and went Macrae and G Rohan out for same pair without the cash influx.
        Boy am I happy so far. Luke Parker vs Buddy… I'd take parker… solid as scorer.
        I looked at doggies run over next 5 and apart from say dahl and libba, I just seek pts and $$ leaking… esp from macrae and Higgins.
        But I will cop Higgins this week, seeing as he is set to play more a def into off role. Might help his scoring stay reasonably the same.
        maybe Higgins to buddy for me too next week. but I am smitten by swans players at the moment.

Lance · 30/05/2014 at 04:20

Which of the three of Polec, Fasolo, Sam Lloyd to trade out for Shenton?

    wes · 30/05/2014 at 07:58

    I'd go Lloyd – he seems real out of favour.
    I think at least for this week you can keep Polec in with injuries there and his output should be around BE level and you won't lose on him.

      Azmataz · 30/05/2014 at 19:34

      I would go Polec – more money! If Lloyd is on your bench at the moment, I wouldn't worry too much about moving him on. I am holding onto him HOPING that he gets another crack soon. Same goes with Acres.

      If he is on your field though, yeah move him on.

      I would wait and see how Fasolo goes against the Saints.

Josh · 30/05/2014 at 06:21

I ent Kennedy Harris for lecras good trade????

    Matt · 30/05/2014 at 22:02

    Smart move getting rid of JKH. Can see LeCras as a high midpricer/low premium. I would prefer Watts 35k cheaper and a breakeven of 22.

      Azmataz · 31/05/2014 at 06:33

      For $420k you can do a lot better than Le Cras. You can get Wingard for $436k, Pavfor $434k, Dixon $421k, Nick Reiwoldt $399k, Buddy $430 odd k.

Jarrod05 · 30/05/2014 at 07:20

Need help, down grading Aish! Was thinking Shenton or K. Mitchell for pod? Thoughts?

    wes · 30/05/2014 at 07:59

    Shenton if you can cope with it score wise.

    OldOcker · 30/05/2014 at 14:18

    Cameron Shenton.

      Azmataz · 30/05/2014 at 19:35

      Shenton – more cash and better job security

Jarrod05 · 30/05/2014 at 07:24

I’d trade polec! High break even and has prob reached his max.

    Azmataz · 30/05/2014 at 19:36

    Polec is gone for Rocky

Maso · 30/05/2014 at 07:52

Great podcast jock and some very good wisdom from the community,
Trying to decide if i should go Tex this week to sit at F6

    Maso · 30/05/2014 at 07:54

    My forwards – Danger,Dusty,Wingard,Pav,Buddy then rookies – impey,ambrose,cameron

      Remy · 30/05/2014 at 09:40

      Impey needs to go.
      Don't see how you can go wrong with Tex.
      Best FWD option for his price.

        Captain joc · 30/05/2014 at 11:20

        Look for a cheaper rookie?

    OldOcker · 30/05/2014 at 14:45

    Hi Maso, I am going to use Tex as my F7 emergency loophole player at his price, He may well act as an F6 for a week or two.
    Shenton is the other option to generate some cash.

Remy · 30/05/2014 at 09:36

Who should I put captain out of:
Pendles, Watson, Beams, Cotchin, Libba and Goddard?
(Already used VC on Bartel)
Thanks community

    Donavan · 30/05/2014 at 09:54

    I would select Libba or Beams, most likely Libba.

    julz · 30/05/2014 at 10:50

    I would go pendles or beams vs a weaker SK side (sorry jock)
    Libba could get Crowleyed altho he will most likely go to griff

      Azmataz · 30/05/2014 at 18:17

      I would go Pendles, he has an awesome record against the Saints

matthewjsampson · 30/05/2014 at 12:17

Should I play L. Taylor or Shenton on ground this week?

    hmmmmm · 30/05/2014 at 12:31

    taylor, hes getting into form

      Itchy Nuts Pieman · 30/05/2014 at 12:56

      Back to back 80's L Taylor is the man

hmmmmm · 30/05/2014 at 12:30

trade shuey to ward or hold?

    Azmataz · 30/05/2014 at 18:18

    Hold. Too sideways there mate and GWS are back to shite again

Simon T · 30/05/2014 at 13:10

Hi Community

Desperately need some help!!!. Currently starring at two donuts in DEF with J Tippett and Cutler both out but also want to trade Dunstan or Acres. Popular pick seems to be Shenton (St K) as he is cheap and a FWD/MID but would prefer to use the trade to pick up Wingard or Goddard instead if I can find the cash. Missed out on Bews last night (possibly a blessing with a score of 29) but now don't know who to trade Tippett out for with only $90k available and 16 trades left.

Any help/advice greatly appreciated.

    Gold Coast Blues · 30/05/2014 at 13:28

    are any of these players on your field or just bench?

    OldOcker · 30/05/2014 at 15:05

    Do you have any def/mid players in your midfield, It is hard to help without knowing your team structure.
    Are Tippet and Cutler both on field players for you to have 2 doughnuts?

      OldOcker · 30/05/2014 at 15:22

      There is not much in defense but if you wanted to take a gamble on Brodie Martin (ADE) he has a B/E -21
      make sure he is playing first. He is on the extended bench but has played last 2 games.
      Cutler – Brodie Martin.
      Dunstan – Wingard.
      This will leave you $12,100 in the bank.

Gilly · 30/05/2014 at 13:23

Anyone know much about Zach Obrien who is playing his first game for Brisbane this week? 23 year old that played 12 games for the Essendon reserves last year. Only $102k could be pretty helpful if his is any good.

    Mungos Men · 30/05/2014 at 15:22

    is a gun played with him last year can find the footy, and tackles hard!

      Gilly · 30/05/2014 at 15:47

      Cheers Mungos. Hope he goes well.

Gold Coast Blues · 30/05/2014 at 13:27

Made another dud move yesterday – traded R.Shaw out for M.Johnson. Should have traded Langdon out and kept Shaw a little longer. Then he goes and makes it worse with a 118.

    Derek · 30/05/2014 at 16:56

    Johnson a good trade in though. Will do very well with Freo's next 8 games

Michael · 30/05/2014 at 13:48

Any thoughts on a defender upgrade? My backline is McVeigh, Bartel, Simpson, Swallow, Langdon, Langford, Georgiou and Tippet. Thinking of Hibberd or Hanley. Thoughts on them or any other suggestions?

    Captain joc · 30/05/2014 at 14:29


    Cam · 30/05/2014 at 16:19

    Hibberd, hands down. He's only been scoring 90s of late so his price is ok and hopefully he'll be back up at 100-110s soon if Essendon can start playing some half-decent football

    Derek · 30/05/2014 at 16:56

    Hanley is cheap. If you are short on cash, I would get him

    Azmataz · 30/05/2014 at 18:20

    Definiely Hibberd mate. He is solid

simplyred · 30/05/2014 at 14:05

jimmy cassidy never rode Makybe Diva.
Stick to fantasy footy jock

    Derek · 30/05/2014 at 16:55

    yeah… but it was funny!

CJay · 30/05/2014 at 14:41

Shenton looks a good trade in option but who to slaughter?
A: Aish
B: M. Crouch
Thoughts community ?

    Cam · 30/05/2014 at 16:17

    Aish's BE is 85 and Crouch's is 79. I'd be more inclined to cull Crouch first considering how they're scoring at the moment.

      Azmataz · 30/05/2014 at 19:39

      Get rid of Crouch mate he is not even named

Pots · 30/05/2014 at 15:27

Love some advise from the community.
Is K. Simpson (OUT Polec via DPP) worth getting in this week for a full BAC or shall I get in Dahlhuas for the non playing S Lloyd? Still have Taylor, Ambrose,Lloyd and Cameron to plump up in FWD

    chandanrajdb · 30/05/2014 at 15:32

    Dahlhuas for Lloyd looks good IMO…..Polec playing against Melbourne this week and St Kilda next week he will not leak cash too much…and will have a solid output…..

    Lloyd on the other hand not sure whether he comes back into the team?

    Simpson is a good pick but bit overs IMO…


    OldOcker · 30/05/2014 at 16:25

    Hi Pots, It appears that you need to strengthen your forward line and Dahlhaus will do that but has a B/E of 125 this week, Which means he might come down a little in price. He is a keeper and a solid choice.
    Simpson has a B/E of 49 and is a solid choice also, He may seem a little bit overs in price but his price should go up again next week. Will be top 6 defender in my opinion.
    Depends on whether you are happy with your current back-line or not but I would be leaning towards fixing the forward line first with too many rookies on the ground.

      Derek · 30/05/2014 at 16:53

      Simpson over priced, and will get more attention in future weeks, not sure if he has proven himself as a keeper yet

        OldOcker · 30/05/2014 at 17:11

        Not proven as a keeper yet?
        2011 Average 94.5 Last 3rd of season 106.7
        2012 Average 93.7 Last 3rd of season 97.0
        2013 Average 95.1 Last 3rd of season 107.7
        Simpson has always been listed as a mid-fielder but is now a defender this season.
        Yes he may get more attention but good players handle that he seems to have done that for a while.

      Pots · 30/05/2014 at 17:43

      Was going to go the FWD option but I think I may go with Simpson now since Langford is now out. Can't afford the 0.

        OldOcker · 30/05/2014 at 17:49

        Hope it all works out for you mate.

    Pots · 30/05/2014 at 18:21

    I should state that only two of these rookies are on the ground.

Sully321 · 30/05/2014 at 15:58

Which two should I put in out of JKH, impey, Lloyd and Charlie Cameron?

    Sarah · 30/05/2014 at 16:06

    Whichever two aren't named as the sub when the games start! Likely to be JKH and Cameron. Lloyd isn't named to play.

    OldOcker · 30/05/2014 at 16:50

    With Lloyd not playing you can use the loophole on the others.

julz · 30/05/2014 at 16:09

Who to field out of Lennon, Charlie Cameron and Ambrose?

    Azmataz · 30/05/2014 at 18:26


tension head · 30/05/2014 at 16:21

anyone else read jocks email in jocks voice? lol, im guessing im not the only one

tension head · 30/05/2014 at 16:34

anyone else read jocks email in jocks voice? lol, im guessing im not the only one. I even threw in a few “y’knows”

David · 30/05/2014 at 16:47

Guys im thinking about off loading Ablett and swinging in swallow from my defence, the trading Ablett to Jensch?
That will give me 514k to double upgrade my shocking forward line to a Zorko or N.Reiwoldt and Parker to finish my forward line.

    Azmataz · 30/05/2014 at 18:27

    Dude that is crazy

    Shinboner · 30/05/2014 at 19:45

    Terrible, terrible move. You're losing about 50-60 points and a surefire lock-in captain for a 20-30 point/week increase in the forward line.

    BeagzBoyz · 30/05/2014 at 23:21

    Should have done it last week if you were going to. Could have made some money off it as well with gazza going to drop 50-75k in the next week or two. Only issue is the captaincy but if you have solid mid fielders then may as well do it

James · 30/05/2014 at 17:32

Best Forward Premo's?

    Matt · 30/05/2014 at 22:17

    Dangerfield, Robbie Gray, Boomer Harvey, Lukey Parker. Dont count out Dustin Martin and Jack Riewoldt with very low BE of 38 and 30.

      Azmataz · 31/05/2014 at 06:27

      Do not go for Jack Reiwoldt. You will get 50's

dognino · 30/05/2014 at 17:33

Thursday night footy is killing my SC decisions

    OldOcker · 30/05/2014 at 17:40

    Thursday's and Monday's as well are a right royal pain in the seat of my pants, Nearly as bad as byes.

Lewis · 30/05/2014 at 17:46

Hey community, was going to do polec to pendles and impey to shenton, but with enright, j. tippett and now langford out in my backline i am staring at a donut. I have about 200k in the kitty and have 5 premo defenders already playing this week. I cant swing in anyone from the mids. Should i trade out langford and if so do i stick with getting pendles in or leave him for another week and get in shenton?

    Derek · 30/05/2014 at 17:55

    is Langford out?

      Lewis · 30/05/2014 at 18:00

      omitted and named on the emergencies mate. its on the afl website "rd 11 full teams"

        Captain joc · 30/05/2014 at 18:09

        Get shenton and upgrade langford

          Lewis · 30/05/2014 at 18:15

          My current backline is k. simpson, hibberd, bartel, swalow, hanley and enright. who should i get in?

      Derek · 30/05/2014 at 18:11

      I have Walker, Aylett, Webster and now Langford in DEF all not playing.

        Captain joc · 30/05/2014 at 19:39

        What about jaensch then you can loophole between jaensch and enright

          Leighroy · 31/05/2014 at 01:04

          A lot of people in this position I have walker, enright, Langford and cutler. Traded out cutler for bews on Thursday and now thinking of trading Langford to janech. It would mean I have Langdon on the bench next week but could move him on and shift cash to another line just not sure who to downgrade to. Can’t really loop hole as enright has played, and, trades would just allow you to avoid a donut

    Azmataz · 30/05/2014 at 18:29

    I would be inclined to cop the donut and stick with plan A. Both Pendles and Shenton are must haves

      Lewis · 30/05/2014 at 18:38

      how do you think pendles will go with swan out? will he still score more than polec against melbourne?

        Azmataz · 30/05/2014 at 18:59

        Absolutely. I reckon he will score BETTER with Swan being out. I would say 95% chance that Pendles will outscore Polec.

Brandon2416 · 30/05/2014 at 17:48

taylor or hurting on field?

    Azmataz · 30/05/2014 at 19:40

    Taylor. Hartung has a high likelihood of getting the vest

John · 30/05/2014 at 17:56

best fwd premium

    Azmataz · 30/05/2014 at 19:00

    In order: Danger, Robbie Gray, Parker, Boomer Harvey, Dusty, Dahlhaus

      Shinboner · 30/05/2014 at 19:43

      Would place Dahl before Boomer and Dusty.

Derek · 30/05/2014 at 17:57

i'm worried that Langdon will get Vest tonight!

    OldOcker · 30/05/2014 at 18:06

    Good chance looking at bench.

    MightyDonsFC · 30/05/2014 at 18:31

    Seeds man is the sub

      dognino · 30/05/2014 at 18:37

      Langdon named on the wing

        Leighroy · 31/05/2014 at 00:58

        Maxwell injury adds to job security and fasolo playing forward. With those in mind the question is “is Langdon a keeper” I believe the answer is really up to the individual and how many trades people have burnt on injuries during the year

Roo Boy · 30/05/2014 at 18:04

Strongly considering Jack Steven! Great PoD if he comes good? Or do I need to have a good hard look in the mirror??

    Azmataz · 30/05/2014 at 19:02

    A major gamble mate but might just come off! I have took a gamble bringing in Rockliff for Polec this week despite Rocky having a poor record against Carlton. I also found that Rocky seems to score WAY better when playing for a losing team, so have took the punt.

    Trust your gut.

      Roo Boy · 30/05/2014 at 20:55

      Thanks Azmataz! Rocky is a gun and should reward your faith.

      I rolled the dice with him, will make or break me. Gambling on him coming good for the remainder of the season

George · 30/05/2014 at 18:12

Langford out, now gonna get a 0 in defense because I can't reverse trades, great!

    Leighroy · 31/05/2014 at 00:53

    I have cutler, enright, walker and Langford so I feel your pain. I traded cutler for bews but also need to trade Langford now as he may not be in boltons plans and may have peaked in price. I wanted to get shenton in but unfortunately missed this week. Might downgrade Langford to Martin as with a full side my d6 is Langdon. I can use the cash to upgrade a mid next week or the week after. Good luck

MightyDonsFC · 30/05/2014 at 18:32

Dane Swan OUT

James · 30/05/2014 at 18:44

robbie gray in?

    scano · 30/05/2014 at 18:57

    gray most consistent and in a good side

James · 30/05/2014 at 18:45

dahlhaus in?

    Azmataz · 30/05/2014 at 19:03


      Captain joc · 30/05/2014 at 19:37

      Yes go for Dahlhaus he is consistent

    Shinboner · 30/05/2014 at 19:41


James · 30/05/2014 at 18:45

brent harvey in?

    Azmataz · 30/05/2014 at 19:03


    Tommykwr · 30/05/2014 at 19:10

    Got him in last week should score well
    Worth the upgrade I think

James · 30/05/2014 at 18:46

bruest in?

    Azmataz · 30/05/2014 at 19:04

    Hell no

    Tommykwr · 30/05/2014 at 19:08

    No way

    James · 30/05/2014 at 19:31

    not bruest i meant gunston

      Azmataz · 30/05/2014 at 19:41

      Still a No

James · 30/05/2014 at 18:46

wingard in?

    Azmataz · 30/05/2014 at 19:04

    Maybe – not convinced

    Tommykwr · 30/05/2014 at 19:09

    I would get him in cheap and should average around 90-100 from here on

    Shinboner · 30/05/2014 at 19:41

    Only if he kicks a bag a game, it seems.

      Azmataz · 30/05/2014 at 19:42

      Yeah he needs to kick 3 or 4 goals to break 100. I would rather go bloody Nick Reiwoldt

James · 30/05/2014 at 18:49

libba, pendles , fyfe, griffen, watson or heppel

    scano · 30/05/2014 at 18:57


    Azmataz · 30/05/2014 at 19:06

    In this order – Pendles, Libba, Watson, Griffen, Fyfe, Heppel.

    I can just see Fyfe missing games along the way, and is too expensive. Griffen is a bargain but there are so many better options for a bit more cash in my opinion.

    OldOcker · 30/05/2014 at 19:08

    Yeah all in. Pendles VC.

    Shinboner · 30/05/2014 at 19:51


scano · 30/05/2014 at 18:56

thoughts on Hanley?

    Tommykwr · 30/05/2014 at 19:10

    I wouldn't trade him in
    Can't we him scoring as well as the opening rounds

      Azmataz · 30/05/2014 at 19:44

      Risky trade. No for me but I can see the upside. Will be a rollercoaster ride – a bit like Zorko

    Shinboner · 30/05/2014 at 19:49

    Just brought him in! He's getting his hands on the pill, and the bye has given him time to recuperate. He will explode any week now.

Donavan · 30/05/2014 at 19:38

Rare situation his week, wondering if anyone else has encountered it.

Playing agains a team with 22 on-field different players to my team. Zero common players on the field.

    Shinboner · 30/05/2014 at 19:50

    Never encountered that myself, with most teams having Sandi, Beams, Swallow and Gazza. 22 uniques will definitely keep things interesting for you.

      Wattsieesq · 31/05/2014 at 00:17

      Very rare. I am up against someone this week and we have 1 in common. No as good as one but its the lowest I've gone up against.

James · 30/05/2014 at 19:46

best forward upgrade option..

    Glorin · 30/05/2014 at 20:36

    Dunstall or Lockett. If you have the $ go Ablett snr.

Antonio · 30/05/2014 at 22:41

Do I take Beams 126 or keep C on Ablett?

    Tim · 30/05/2014 at 22:48

    Wondering the same thing. Think I will take the 126.

    Donavan · 30/05/2014 at 23:15

    Back in Ablett, he had his poor game for the decade last week, he will be out for vengence.

      Wattsieesq · 31/05/2014 at 00:19

      Gaz for me. I backed in Pendles last week as he hit 150. I wouldn't loophole under 150 when I have Gaz on field.

        Azmataz · 31/05/2014 at 01:15

        C on Abz or Danger

Drew · 30/05/2014 at 23:13

Do i take Derick's 75 or play S.Hampson, i'm worried that with Maric back, hampson will start to drop off

    Donavan · 30/05/2014 at 23:31

    Play Hampson. He should score at least 60 even if Maric takes the bulk of the work load, but with Maric first game back, Hampson may get more opportunity than next week when Maric has a run under his belt.

      Captain joc · 31/05/2014 at 00:37

      I’d take the 75

        Azmataz · 31/05/2014 at 06:22

        I'd take the 75

Donavan · 30/05/2014 at 23:17

How much will Shenton go up in value? $70k?

    Captain joc · 31/05/2014 at 00:37

    He will go up to 220k

      Leighroy · 31/05/2014 at 00:45

      Yeah I wanted to get him in but have cutler, walker, enright and Langford in my back line. Traded out cutler for bews but now need to trade out Langford to avoid the donut. I’m thinking janech as I have $129k plus langfords price

        Captain joc · 31/05/2014 at 02:37

        Hurn if you have too

          Leighroy · 31/05/2014 at 10:05

          The other option which I like a lot more now is Langford to Brodie Martin nets me cash to upgrade fasolo or crouch to a prem midfielder and swing dustin Martin into forward line if fasolo is culled. When my back line is fit it leaves me with mcveigh, swallow, bartel, walker, enright, and Langdon. I think this is better then having to downgrade again in my back line in weeks to come

Drew · 31/05/2014 at 00:37

Who should i put the vc on this week out of:
Watson, D.Martin, Zorko, Danger or Ablett?

    Azmataz · 31/05/2014 at 06:25

    The VC? Ablett or Danger. Do you have that luxury? Who would you put the C on if it doesn't come off and who is your loop hole player?

Sam · 31/05/2014 at 00:57

I have to trade out langford this week and i already have a full premo backline, who should i get in out of jaensch, s.thompson and s.hurn?

    Captain joc · 31/05/2014 at 02:33

    If you have a full premo backline then why do you need to trade Langford out?

      Sam · 31/05/2014 at 03:08

      if i dont ill have a donut as enright isnt playing and my d8 – fuller isn't playing as well as langford

        Captain joc · 31/05/2014 at 03:24

        Maybe do a downgrade then?

          Leighroy · 31/05/2014 at 10:09

          I agree downgrade and swing the cash to another line, Brodie Martin is really the only downgrade defender I can find. I there anyone else that I’m missing?

Hussler · 31/05/2014 at 08:22

Who's best to trade in for jkh ?? Bruest, rgray, dalhaus ??? Can afford any of these three.

    BCHawks · 31/05/2014 at 09:23

    I'd go Gray personally. He has played very well this year, so has Dalhaus though so either would be good. You should also consider Wingard if you don't have him.

BCHawks · 31/05/2014 at 09:44

So how much will Pendlebury got up this week with his 118 as I look to get him in next week and also should I take Beams 126 or back Gazza in?

    OldOcker · 31/05/2014 at 12:34

    Pendles will go up about $8,500 with a new B/E of about 112 next week.
    I have Beams VC but I am going to back GAJ as I always do.

      BCHawks · 31/05/2014 at 12:43

      thanks mate I think that I will back him in and I should be able to afford Pendles next week.

GarglesnarfFC · 31/05/2014 at 10:15

Have used Lloyd on the field to loophole Fasolos 95. Now reading that Dangerfield is quite likely to be a late withdrawal tomorrow. Do I swap Ambrose back on to the field for Lloyd or leave it and risk a donut from Paddy D?

    chandanrajdb · 31/05/2014 at 11:33

    Hi GFC,

    Dangerfield will play mate….just saw tweet about him saying he trained yesterday at 100%….

    I have an issue this week, Langford out means I will have to cop a donut this week….which I do not want since I am going for overall…..have 1 trade left for this week and $201k in the warchest…considering trading Langford out to a premium def….who do you think I need to be considering,

    At the moment I am considering….
    1. Hanley
    2. M Johnson from freo, if I trade him in I will have literally 0 money in the warchest….and also by looking at his past seasons averages he hasn't averaged more than 90…..???
    3. G Birchall…..bit up and down this season….but based on the stats and past season averages he has averaged 90 – 98……

    Or is there anyone else I should be considering???

    Comments / thoughts/ suggestions would be much appreciated…..

    Thank you….


      Donavan · 31/05/2014 at 15:16

      I like Johnson. Think he will average 100 or more for the rest of the season.

      Bichalls role will change when all of the other hawk defenders return.

      GarglesnarfFC · 31/05/2014 at 18:20

      Hey Raj, sorry not to reply earlier but have been out having a life away from SC for the day.

      First up it isn't a disaster to have a donut for a week, so don't feel you HAVE to burn a trade, especially if you only have 1 left. Langford will be back sooner rather than later, even with a new coach. However, if you feel you have to trade then Johnson at Freo is a solid pick. Scores consistently and has a butter soft draw for 9 weeks.

    Donavan · 31/05/2014 at 16:21

    Have you got anyway of switching Dangerfield to the midfield where you probably have emergency coverage?

    I have just done this.

      GarglesnarfFC · 31/05/2014 at 18:22

      Not in SC. Have done this in DT, using Wright as a swingman to cover his out if req.

      Will leave Ambrose on the bench. Even if he plays he is a likely sub candidate and might score stuff all. I will take the 95.

scano · 31/05/2014 at 10:29

How many trades to people have?

    BCHawks · 31/05/2014 at 10:43

    I only have 11 left.

dannyyboyy · 31/05/2014 at 11:14

is kade simpson to expensive?

    BCHawks · 31/05/2014 at 11:24

    not the way he is playing.

      dannyyboyy · 31/05/2014 at 11:39

      got a donut in the backs if i dont upgrade langford. was originally thinkin bartel or mcveigh but they have played already. i dont have simpson either. might have to bite the bullet and pull the trigger. somehow i dont think those puns should go together…thanks BC

    chandanrajdb · 31/05/2014 at 11:37

    IMO yes…..priced to average around 113 points per game…..if you think he will average 113 for the rest of the season then go for him…..


      dannyyboyy · 31/05/2014 at 11:51

      im in need of a defender and the other options dont jump out at me. burgoyne hibberd and johnson are the others that ive been considering. but simpsons output should be better so im thinkin it might be worth the cash. its reminding me of last year when i spent heaps on hartlett and he burned me, but he was only a kid and simpson is an "old campaigner". what do u thik i should do?

        chandanrajdb · 31/05/2014 at 12:44

        I have hibberd….and happy with him……Simpson vs hibberd hard one…..both will be in the top 10 def by season end IMO….Simpson bit overpriced, in saying that if ur not concerned with the money then go for Simpson for sure got a higher ceiling and a low BE as well…..

        Hope this helps….


Jono · 31/05/2014 at 11:20

Nice score from Shenton last night and have him as my emergency. I can loophole him by trading Polec to Simpson via McDonald to the midfield. Is Simpson too expensive at 567k? I've already got the other must-have defenders. Or would it be better to keep Polec and trade to a cheap midfield premium in the following weeks? Thanks for your suggestions community.

    chandanrajdb · 31/05/2014 at 11:41

    I wanted to bring Simpson in as well but held on to polec considering Port' s next 2 matches against Melbourne and st kilda…….Polec will produce a solid output and will not leak too much of cash….after 2 rounds u consider ur options in midfield or defence….

    And yes Simpson is bit overpriced….IMO…


      Michael · 31/05/2014 at 15:11

      Polec needs a good 2nd half, only on about 28 at 1/2time. Also has something happened to Wingard? On 6pts at 1/2time!!

chandanrajdb · 31/05/2014 at 11:43

Hello community,

I have an issue this week, Langford out means I will have to cop a donut this week….which I do not want since I am going for overall…..have 1 trade left for this week and $201k in the warchest…considering trading Langford out to a premium def….who do you think I need to be considering,

At the moment I am considering….
1. Hanley
2. M Johnson from freo, if I trade him in I will have literally 0 money in the warchest….and also by looking at his past seasons averages he hasn't averaged more than 90…..???
3. G Birchall…..bit up and down this season….but based on the stats and past season averages he has averaged 90 – 98……

Or is there anyone else I should be considering???

Comments / thoughts/ suggestions would be much appreciated…..

Thank you….


    simon · 31/05/2014 at 11:55

    Raj… I'm in a similar situation. I have McVeigh, swallow & barrel as my main premiums BUT am now considering dropping Langford for ????? Simpson surely cant maintain 140+ thus will drop to low 500k in coming weeks so im holding out. Im Considering Burgoyne. He is cheaper and is showing reasonable consistency. plus GWS this week.

    other options. ?

    dannyyboyy · 31/05/2014 at 12:23

    im in the same boat with 333k in the bank. im torn between simpson and burgoyne now, but leaning towards simpson still. burgoyne is 57k cheaper with an average over 100 which is decent for a back though, i just dont know how consistant he can be over the rest of the year, which is why i think simpson might still be the better option, even though he is overpriced by about 30k. just my thoughts

      chandanrajdb · 31/05/2014 at 12:41

      If u have the cash and if u don't need the warchest for any other upgrades in ur team then go for Simpson…he is definitely a top 5 defender for the year……for some reason I don't like Burgoyne…..


    OldOcker · 31/05/2014 at 12:46

    This is the answer I gave to a previous question to someone that said Simpson is Not proven as a keeper yet?
    2011 Average 94.5 Last 3rd of season 106.7
    2012 Average 93.7 Last 3rd of season 97.0
    2013 Average 95.1 Last 3rd of season 107.7
    Simpson has always been listed as a mid-fielder but is now a defender this season.
    Yes he may get more attention but good players handle that he seems to have done that for a while.

    I do not have Simpson in my team at the moment but I do have Burgoyne who I am very happy with, He is a gun. Was looking to get Simpson myself this week but outs have forced me to defer for a week unfortunately.

      chandanrajdb · 31/05/2014 at 12:51

      I haven't said that Simpson is not a keeper mate…..he is absolutely a keeper…….

      Given my circumstances and based on my warchest I cannot afford Simpson…..

      I seeking communities help in regards to a premium def under $500k…..who do u think I need to be strongly considering……


        OldOcker · 31/05/2014 at 12:57

        Sorry mate I hit the wrong reply I will have a look at stats and prices for you be back with a reply in a couple of minutes.

        OldOcker · 31/05/2014 at 13:06

        Grant Birchall seems to be the best option under $500k in my opinion if you have to have someone this week. I myself went Andrew Walker who is not playing this week but I have cover with KoloJAZknee.

          chandanrajdb · 31/05/2014 at 13:19

          Thanks Ocker,

          My current def

          J MaCveigh, M Hibberd, J Bartel, A Walker, D Swallow, T Langdon, W Langford, T Cutler…


            OldOcker · 31/05/2014 at 13:21

            No problem mate I hope you are keeping that ranking up there.

simon · 31/05/2014 at 11:57

I think so. 520k is fair

John · 31/05/2014 at 12:10

Best upgrade from Polec who hasn't played… Already have Watson, NDS, Gaz and Libba. Price no issue

    Wes · 01/06/2014 at 08:37

    Rocky. Super premo! Good run of games coming up too.

Sac · 31/05/2014 at 13:21

I want to possibility loophole Shentons' 100 (FWD Emg) but have Danger, Martin, Roughy, R Grey and Chappy to choose from in my fwdline. Does anyone think Chappy will have 100+? Roughy was my first thought but Hawks play GWS which lately have been exciting the arousal curves of opposition fwd's

    OldOcker · 31/05/2014 at 13:28

    You have only mentioned 5 forwards?
    Dangerfield could possibly be a late out as well so your decision might be made for you.
    The arousal droop is getting a bit slack and worn out.

Branks · 31/05/2014 at 14:14

Is it a good idea to make Priddis captain this week? As he has averaged 136 over his last 3 against North Melbourne.

    OldOcker · 31/05/2014 at 14:22

    Who have you got as VC?

      Branks · 31/05/2014 at 17:35

      Franklin. Scored a good 108, but definitely not captain worthy.

Benno_S · 31/05/2014 at 15:17

Alright, here's my dilemma. Going for league win with 75k in the bank. Sitting 11th, one game out of the 8, playing top spot. Thought I had him covered until his choices of cloke and buddy have got him in the box seat.

I'm not far away from premium but my forward line has Lloyd, ambrose and and Charlie Cameron being bench and f6. Toying with the idea of bringing in big tex for Lloyd in the hope of scraping an extra 50-60 points to get me across the line. Is this just craziness?

    Donavan · 31/05/2014 at 16:34

    Never trade for a league win, unless it is in a finals game. Remember your team is your team, don't be swayed by opposition, particularly this early in the season.

    derek · 31/05/2014 at 20:54

    Tex is ok, what about Petrie?

    Benno_S · 01/06/2014 at 09:07

    Thanks for the thoughts guys. Think I'll hold out this round and reset myself for next week. Bit like Geelong!

Can't take this anymore this year, ever since round 1 i have been raped by injuries suspensions and – 30 scores in every round. Now to continue this trend Wingard joins my party from hell!

Here's a list of players that were in my team start of season, during and now:


    OldOcker · 31/05/2014 at 16:33

    David, Chin up mate there is still the league win.
    Money for the highest score of the week.
    AND your own pride and determination to see the season out.
    NEVER give up mate.

    dognino · 31/05/2014 at 16:41

    I'll see your list and raise

    Have 6 donuts sitting on my benches and 2 on field right now with

      dognino · 31/05/2014 at 23:58

      How could I forget, also started with Rohan, McDonough and Barlow too.

Hazey · 31/05/2014 at 17:03

Pretty happy with bringing in Mackie over a premium mid for Polec :-/

piewood1 · 31/05/2014 at 19:59

1165 / 10……Just scored 669 from 5 players in the Brisbane v Carlton game Rocky 182, Zorko 131, Hanley 98, Murphy 156 & 102 from Docherty…….I'm stoked!

    Jottie · 31/05/2014 at 20:51

    Nice mate! Goes to show , stick to your premiums! Your faith in them just paid off!!

      piewood1 · 31/05/2014 at 21:54

      Only premos I got rid of were S.Mitchell due to injury & this week his namesake Tom coz I got tired of his no-selction. when they are both back & start to show something, I figure I can always buy them back at a cheaper price.

michael · 31/05/2014 at 19:59

Zorko the magnificent – YES!!

    taylorwoof · 01/06/2014 at 01:27

    The 12 is now long forgotten. Glad i stuck fat.

derek · 31/05/2014 at 20:53

i'm playing against someone predicted to score 2682!!!.

    piewood1 · 31/05/2014 at 21:58

    Wow that's huge!!!….2 questions so hows things going for you? & are they on target for that score?

      Derek · 31/05/2014 at 22:54

      Nah, nowhere near that.
      He had rocky, Cloke, Murphy, malceski, Zorko.

    Jottie · 31/05/2014 at 22:54

    I'm playing I against you in raj's league mate obviously not that bloke your doing well, I'm proven performers I have been a bit unlucky I had win gard and enright wit no cover for cutler πŸ™

    Liam · 01/06/2014 at 12:49

    Im playing someone who is predicted to beat me and they dont even have Gaz or pendles???!!! Go figure

Kenny Powers · 31/05/2014 at 22:16

How can Hibberd get 91% DE when he has had 5 clangers from 23 possies? Propeller Heads again ..

MightyDonsFC · 31/05/2014 at 22:57

Up a bit too late last night, thought I put the C on smurph only to find out it was on gray. With walker out I accidentally fielded clurey instead of bews and to cap it all off Charlie Cameron appeared on my field when I though ambrose was starting πŸ™

    Wes · 01/06/2014 at 08:33

    Interested to know your score then once round is done

      MightyDonsFC · 01/06/2014 at 19:56

      2347, not too bad but not great by any stretch

taylorwoof · 01/06/2014 at 01:27

Tom Rockliff STAR!

That is all.

BCHawks · 01/06/2014 at 11:47

Still deciding whether or not to take Beams score or back Gazza.

Aaron · 01/06/2014 at 12:22

Danger or ablett captain?

Liam · 01/06/2014 at 12:33

Another Wayno's hot tip (wingard) bites the dust! Interesting to see now if Shenton is cursed and who Wayno puts the mock on in tonights podcast!! (please don't kill barlow for me wayno!!!)

    Itchy Nuts Pieman · 01/06/2014 at 12:47

    Bit harsh on Wayno. Last 2 Wingard scored 98 & 100. He got KO’d yesterday. Shenton backed by his 99 with 100. I’d say the tips have been excellent. I’m shattered I didn’t get in Shenton!

      Liam · 01/06/2014 at 14:59

      Just a gee up Itchy, carrying on from my post last week!! As am i mate, but there is light at the end of the tunnel – zac obrien!!

Brent · 01/06/2014 at 12:44

Guys quick ablett or danger as the big C

    Itchy Nuts Pieman · 01/06/2014 at 12:49

    I’m contemplating the same thing! Good case for either. Suns have no one to play on danger. If he didn’t get crunched last week I’d probably go danger

      Brent · 01/06/2014 at 12:52

      Wouldn't he have recovered by now though?

Simon · 01/06/2014 at 13:58

Not Sam Jacobs

dognino · 01/06/2014 at 15:20

YESSSS! Late change Lewis out, Langford back in. 1 less donut to worry about

    GarglesnarfFC · 01/06/2014 at 19:42

    And he scored 90+! Bonus!

      dognino · 01/06/2014 at 20:01

      Yep, win win

piewood1 · 01/06/2014 at 16:15

1877 / 15 with Libba, Burnman Higgins, Pav, Sandi, Burgoyne, Langford & Boomer Harvey…..So hoping for a score of around 2500.

    The Mullet · 01/06/2014 at 17:08

    I've got a feeling there will be some big scores this week. I wonder what par will be. Could be one of those weeks you need 2350+ just to stop going backwards.

MightyDonsFC · 01/06/2014 at 17:23

Jacobs and West this weekend. Lord have mercy on Lobbe!

piewood1 · 01/06/2014 at 17:25

So far I have 10 tons a 99 two 98s an 88 & a 71 which is my lowest score so far.

    RooBoy · 01/06/2014 at 18:07

    13 tons, 99, 98, 96, 95, 92, lowest is 88. Burgoyne, Mumford, Harvey still in play.

    dognino · 01/06/2014 at 20:01

    I ended up with 2250, with a donut in the ruck and wingards 10.

    10 tons, 6 in the 90's , 3 in the 70's and 2 in the 60's

piewood1 · 01/06/2014 at 18:17

Wow! looks like you will win the top spot of the week then….well done

    RooBoy · 01/06/2014 at 18:26

    2332 with those 3 left. Don't know about top spot!
    Reckon there will be some big scores but in with a chance I s'pose.

      The Filth · 01/06/2014 at 20:16

      Nice score – good luck RooBoy!

The Filth · 01/06/2014 at 20:16

Final score 2416 – thanks to the late change for Langford, glad I didn't have to take Bews score….
Not bad considering I didn't have any of the 'monster' scores of Cloke, Rockliff, Taylor Walker etc.
Hopefully good enough to keep me in the top 100.

piewood1 · 01/06/2014 at 20:30

Looks like a higher than usual scoring round I have 2468 with Harvey to go. RooBoy must be on target for well over 2600

    RooBoy · 01/06/2014 at 22:34

    Guys, what's the highest score for the car so far?
    I finished with a 2642.
