Jock Reynolds - The Father of Fantasy

Something different tonight Community.

Our leader. Our figurehead. A shining light in an often difficult winter solstice is not well.

However the community marches on – and this week we will be “mixing things up a bit”. We have inserted links into the comments below which, when clicked, will play back audio files of our community musing upon trade options, and providing wisdom in the lead up to a crucial round 15.

As Jock would say “Let us rip Round 15 a new one”. Take heed also that Flesh For Fantasy has been deployed for the evening. Also, in case you have missed it, the extended hour long monthly donors podcast is available here.

Now. Let us do what we do best and deploy wisdom. The idea is to listen to the comments, and to join in on the discussion in the thread beneath each question.

Thank you Community.

A message from Big Ben – CALM DOWN COMMUNITY

    Dave Ruddick · 26/06/2014 at 20:44

    Very wise words from Big Ben…we can build ourselves up into a lather trading in players will nilly….there is no need…remember there will be inevitable injuries to deal with. Trading in players NOT on the bubble is a recipe for disaster…PATIENCE.

jockreynolds · 26/06/2014 at 18:59

Sam with a Rhys Shaw dilemma:

    Donavan · 26/06/2014 at 19:43

    Malceski is a great option.

    Itchy Nuts Pieman · 26/06/2014 at 19:59

    Had Malcheski all year. Hit the sweet spot on my arousel curve! Playing super footy

    Dave Ruddick · 26/06/2014 at 20:45

    Sam…I reckon go to Scott Thompson from the Kangas…I reckon he is about to go BANG and will be a neat POD.

jockreynolds · 26/06/2014 at 19:00

Timmo – imploring the community to consider some POD's:

    Dave Ruddick · 26/06/2014 at 20:48

    Brilliant wisdom from Timmo I reckon. There are so manner "unfashionable" players scoring big. Take a chance on a guy like Callun Ward for example. Love the Prestia pick Timmo.

      Rayza Ray · 27/06/2014 at 23:56

      Hold on Prestia for the moment… Only 70 against the Hawkers last match, bit pricey at the moment I will go bang when price dips.

    James Sykes · 27/06/2014 at 09:10

    I like the idea of POD provided they are returning comparable points to the more popular choice.

    no point going Barlow as the POD if you are giving up JPK to your opposition = – 15 pts.

    POD are good but not just for the sake of it. Sometimes you actually need to 'check' your opposition and match their selection if it is a top 8 pick.

jockreynolds · 26/06/2014 at 19:01

Robbo is scratching his chin about what to do about Marc Murphy:

    Donavan · 26/06/2014 at 19:45

    Murphy will play, hold off trades.

    Dave Ruddick · 26/06/2014 at 20:54

    you gotta hold him I reckon Robbo. He has average 111 for the season and has done his job. I reckon he will play every game from here so I think a sideways trade would be a real waste. If you wanted to downgrade him thats also a very risky move in my book. HOLD!!! I notice Zac O'Brien isn't playing this week which does leave you vulnerable. The other possibility is to trade him move a Bartel or McVeigh into your mids and bring in another Gun backman. Just a thought, but I still reckon Murphy will come up roses for you.

      Robbo · 26/06/2014 at 22:08

      Thanks boys. It's quite a conundrum. Going for overall position and very high up there at the moment. Have swung shenton into the mids this week to cover for a possible late out by murphy and H'church comes onto the fwd bench. Means I have to play Ambrose this week and not enough cash to get Robbie Gray or Boomer until next week at the earliest..

        Robbo · 26/06/2014 at 22:23

        Other option is to bring in Miles and Kersten this week for Ambrose and Hartung… Would certainly rest easy if Murphy was a late out however is it a waste having somebody like miles worth so much on the bench if going for overall…

          James Sykes · 27/06/2014 at 09:17

          Hey Robbo.

          In the exact same boat. Got Murphy and with Acres and Obrien on the bench.

          Just got to hold I think. He almost played and pulled out before any major injury. I think he will play.

          I would only trade if you have more than 7 trades and have enough cash to go straight to one of the top few of Gaz, Pendles, Rocky and JPK in 1 trade.

          If you have those 4 covered already…..may luck be a lady….

jockreynolds · 26/06/2014 at 19:02

LekDog is thinking about pulling the pin on Dane Bloody Swan. And a warning on Scott D Thompson:

    Dave Ruddick · 26/06/2014 at 20:58

    Swan to Pendles is good move I reckon particularly as you are already full-premo. On SDT, interestingly he avearged over 100 from round 15 last year so surely he can average 90-95 this year at least…as a D5 or D6 I reckon he is a top option for the price.

      Lekdog · 26/06/2014 at 21:01

      Thanks for the feedback!

    Big Ben · 26/06/2014 at 22:51

    I agree with ya Lekdog, swan to peddles would be a good move and I am also cautioning people off Thompson, just can't see him being a top 8 mid by end of season

      Sleepy · 27/06/2014 at 11:15

      HI BB I think LekDog and Dave are referring to Scott Thompson if defence for the Roos and you are referring to Scott Thompson from the crows?

jockreynolds · 26/06/2014 at 19:03

Jessie – "we have hit the crossroads. Step UP.. or Step DOWN. Showing great spirit:

    Matt Nish · 26/06/2014 at 19:23

    great stuff jesse keep it up

    Donavan · 26/06/2014 at 19:49

    This should be playing in everyones eyes just before hitting the trade button, Step up or Step down. Inspirational.

      Donavan · 26/06/2014 at 19:49


    Dave Ruddick · 26/06/2014 at 21:00

    PUMPED by this inspirational speech!!

jockreynolds · 26/06/2014 at 19:04

Jackson is having a good hard look at his backline options:

    Donavan · 26/06/2014 at 19:52

    Malceski or Shaw, Id go Malceski. Keep Boomer, good run, he scores huge when playing in a winning team.

jockreynolds · 26/06/2014 at 19:05

Chris.. thinking about where he should go with Tommy Langdon:

jockreynolds · 26/06/2014 at 19:17

HJ – with a suggestion for Jock, and also a very crisp piece of advice:

    Mango Trouser · 26/06/2014 at 19:23

    Not too keen on Libba captain with Griffin out.

      @HJ_Mitch · 26/06/2014 at 19:35

      Roos will not tag an inside player, Mango – history shows that. He will probably tag McCrae.

        The Garbo · 26/06/2014 at 20:10

        And no Cross and McKenzie, the dees main taggers. So Aiden Riley will prob get the job as tagger and most likely will go to MaCrae – But I'm hoping MaCrae should break the tag.

Danners16 · 26/06/2014 at 19:19

Good stuff fellas, interesting to listen to! I am just wondering what I do with Ryan Griffen since he is out, I have $150,000 in the bank. Who is the best player to bring in for him? Thanks

    @HJ_Mitch · 26/06/2014 at 19:39

    For $600K, I don't think you can go past Dayne Beams @ $578,600 or Nat Fyfe @ $573,400

    Donavan · 26/06/2014 at 19:54

    Nat Fyfe or NDS

      scano · 26/06/2014 at 20:07

      will fyfe be rested though? want to bring him but not sure

        Hazey · 26/06/2014 at 20:38

        Is it too dangerous to have both Barlow n Fyfe?

        Can affoerd any mid to trade out Griffen.

          Donavan · 26/06/2014 at 21:38

          I dont see the danger in having 2 top players from the same team. With no more byes, I just dont see the danger.

          I have had Pendlebury and Beams from the start, and that has worked a treat.

          Very difficult for any team to stop Fyfe and Barlow, and I dont think either will be rested.

        Kev · 26/06/2014 at 21:29

        Don't understand not bringing in fyfe because he could be rested. Every player is a chance to get rested.

        Donavan · 26/06/2014 at 21:35

        Freo will be in a dog fight for a top 4 position this year, it is going to be super tight from 1 to 5/6. No team in the top 5-6 will be resting players.

scano · 26/06/2014 at 19:20

I can get in Rockliff to finish my side but will be using all my money, is it better to go for someone a bit cheaper like gray/sloane and save a bit of cash to use on under performing premiums or injured players come end of season?

    enternamehere · 26/06/2014 at 19:26

    will face crowley in sc finals

      SamuelScoach · 26/06/2014 at 19:29

      rocky got 158 vs crowley only last week

        Mitch · 26/06/2014 at 20:39

        Crowley played on Rocky only last quarter in that game. Went to Hanley and wiped him off the ground. I reckon he'll go to Hanley again or Zorko (depending on who is in form) then possibly Rocky if he beats one of the former early doors..

    Danners16 · 26/06/2014 at 19:38

    Finals run-Adelaide, Collingwood (Macaffer?), Fremantle (Crowley?), Geelong (Guthrie?) players in brackets are the ones who could be tagging him, compared to D.Prestia and R.Sloane, Rockliff has it much tougher and they won't be the ones tagged and they also have good finals runs.

paul · 26/06/2014 at 19:23

malceski or hurn?

    Lekdog · 26/06/2014 at 19:29

    If you missed out on hurn when he was cheap the safer option is malceski. But with glass gone hurn had stepped up and I fell he has a higher sealing than malceski, saves a bit of cash too. However with shaw out malceski may start to score really highly again. Flip of the coin really. Malceski for mine, gets injured less than hurn.

      paul · 26/06/2014 at 19:32

      thanks for the advice, think i'm leaning towards malecski at the moment but we'll see

john fitzgerald · 26/06/2014 at 19:24

will honeychurch be sub?

    Need advice · 26/06/2014 at 19:46

    Reckon thats a pretty good bet

    Donavan · 26/06/2014 at 19:57

    I would think so. But he will be a player, and if your putting him on the bench this week, I wouldnt worry, because he will play full games and score well very soon.

    The_Darwin_Ducks · 26/06/2014 at 20:09

    On the AFL website he is placed in the forward pocket so there is a fair chance that he won't have the green vest

TOM · 26/06/2014 at 19:25

Thoughts on Langdon to Heath Shaw?

    Lekdog · 26/06/2014 at 19:30

    I like it, if I wasn’t full premo id pick him up

      Derek · 26/06/2014 at 21:24

      Don’t like GWS next few games

    Need Advice · 26/06/2014 at 19:47

    Get it done, Langdon will bleed cash over next 2 wks.

      Dylan · 27/06/2014 at 18:33

      I’ve gone Langdon to hibberd, going with my gut!

jockreynolds · 26/06/2014 at 19:35

The great Pieman has just deployed some trade tips:

Jojo · 26/06/2014 at 19:37

Have Langdon, need one more upgrade in mids, should I bring bartel in? Or should I bring a mid in?

    Donavan · 26/06/2014 at 20:00

    How much do you have to spend. I would go Barlow, Fyfe or NDS before bringing in Bartel.

      Jojo · 26/06/2014 at 21:26

      65k in the bank. Those 3 are mids, in that scenario I have to keep Langdon (Def)

    Kristofor · 27/06/2014 at 13:48

    In the exact same boat.
    Was tossing up between Thompson of Roos and Enright..
    Have gone with Thompson.
    Hibberd was just out of reach but under an injury cloud.
    Janench another option if you don't have him.

Need Advice · 26/06/2014 at 19:45

def – Bartel, Swallow, McVeigh, Janesch, Suckers & Enright (Langford, Cutler)

mid – gazza, pendles, jpk, beams, rocky, steven J, selwood & hanley (Honeychurch & Dunstan)

I want to complete my mids and swap hanley to defence and bring in Fyfe before he skyrockets in price again and it then becomes difficult to get him in my team.

Trades :

Langford to Z Jones

Suckers/Janesch/Enright swap into mid for Hanely then trade to Fyfe.

Which one of those 3 do the community vote to trade out. Have 10 trades left and want to sure up top 4 this wk v rival top 4 teams.

    Donavan · 26/06/2014 at 20:05

    I would go Janesch to Fyfe.

    Enright is just hitting form, and Suckling will get more freedom to play closer to the mids as Hawks backline players return. Stratton back this week, Gibson still to come.

Mike · 26/06/2014 at 19:45

thoughts on ben browns JS??`

    Matt · 27/06/2014 at 22:38

    Very little, in a team with Goldy, Currie, Majak and pinch-hitting Petrie if he strings a couple of bad ones he will be gone

john fitzgerald · 26/06/2014 at 19:50

honeychurch or ben brown?

    Donavan · 26/06/2014 at 20:05

    Honeychurch – he is quality, and will shine in the Bulldogs team.

    scano · 26/06/2014 at 20:06

    honeychurch will probably get the vest a lot
    not sure about their JS though

      Derek · 26/06/2014 at 21:27

      I thought Dogs had a permanent green vest

        Sleepy · 27/06/2014 at 11:26

        Gianseracusa?(re the vest) is out for two weeks so I would hold off on Honeychurch til Gia comes back and HC is on the bubble

      Garglesnarf FC · 27/06/2014 at 13:28

      He is not listed on the bench, so he won’t get the green vest this week. No guarantees that he won’t get the red one however.

        deadly · 27/06/2014 at 15:17

        Doesn't mean anything.

    OzSonic · 26/06/2014 at 20:07

    Honey. Only because I think he has better JS.

scano · 26/06/2014 at 20:05

do we need money going into finals or is it alright to spend all our money now?

    Donavan · 26/06/2014 at 20:10

    Firstly you need to make the finals, so no point missing out with cash in the bank.

    Secondly if you are at full premo by finals time (which should be a given), then you will need very little to cash because whoever you trade will be high priced.

      Kev · 26/06/2014 at 21:42

      Brilliant advice mate. No point being tight with funds now if you are fighting for a spot in the 8. Get the best player you can

Woody · 26/06/2014 at 20:10

Need advice on my team,
Def: McVeigh, Bartel, Thompson, Hanley, Jaunsch, Langdon (Bews, Aylett)
Mid: Ablett, Pendlebury, Kennedy, Beams, Murphy, Selwood, Johnson, Shenton (O'Brian, Acres)
Rck: Sandilands, Goldstein (Currie, King)
Fwds: Dangerfield, Zorko, Martin, Wingard, Pavlich, Dalhlous (Ambrose, Cameron)

6 trades left with about 190,000 in the kitty.

    Kev · 26/06/2014 at 21:43

    Are you thinking of trading this week, Woody? Outline your plans and you'll get some proper feedback

      Woody · 26/06/2014 at 22:35

      Yeah i was thinking of trading Langdon.

        Dylan · 27/06/2014 at 18:35

        What options are you thinking?

The_Darwin_Ducks · 26/06/2014 at 20:14

My midfield currently stands as
Ablett, Libba, Selwood, Beams, Rockliff, Cotchin, Stevie J, Shenton (McDonald, Acres)

I'm wondering whether Shenton or McDonald are the better upgrade option?
I can afford any midfielder and the first option is Pendles but do I try and go for a cheaper POD so I can save some cash for finals? Who do you think are the other must have midfielders?

    Liam · 26/06/2014 at 20:36

    Get on Pendlebury. Pod no value if Pendlebury scoring higher which he should. Also in finals you would just sideways trade to another premium if necessary. For mine at that upper price you might consider jpk who has a good finals run

    Jimmy Columbine · 26/06/2014 at 20:19

      @Rem_Wah · 26/06/2014 at 20:36

      Jimmy. 4 trades. 9 rounds. If injuries strike….
      Anyways, your team is looking great; being full premo (except N Roo and maybe Zorko)
      In terms of options, just hold your trades.

john snow · 26/06/2014 at 20:21

farking Mcevoy…… What a sizeable stain in my underpants…. 5 goals and BOG in the twos and still no game

    julz · 26/06/2014 at 20:46

    Yeah feel yr pain john, bloody Bolton the stand in hawks coach is single handedly screwing my SC team, no Langford, hallahan and Mcevoy for weeks!!
    What are u doing with the Big Boy aka Big Turd, I’m gonna trade him just not sure if I will sub S Martin in from forward to ruck 2 , can then straight swap for Parker. Or buy a gun ruck, will involve 2 trades then due to lack of funds! Only 7 trades left.
    Can anyone else help us out with ideas?!

      john snow · 26/06/2014 at 21:02

      I figure he was best on last week with 5 goals, maybe one more run in the twos and he'll be back in. I don't like wasting trades on rucks especially this late in the year.

      I'm going to sub Martin into the R2 position from my forward line. Just means I have to play Ambrose on the field which isn't ideal. I've waited this long for him to get back in, if he's out next week he's gone I think. Too much money sitting on the bench

        Donavan · 26/06/2014 at 21:43

        Watch the entire Casey Scorpions v Box Hill match last Saturday. Langford & McEvoy were the best 2 players. Both unlucky not to be named.

Davo · 26/06/2014 at 20:25

I an considering trading McDonald to Miles as M9. Solid backup with potential to rise a fair bit in price. My side is close to full premium, going well in my leagues, however have only 6 trades left. Not looking to trade again until just before finals.
Thoughts community??

    Donavan · 26/06/2014 at 21:47

    Tough call.

    Like the trade, but with just 6 trades remaining i would hold onto trades, unless you have quality swinging players through each of the lines (Def-Mid, Mid-Fwd, Ruck-Fwd), as that flexibility is probably worth 2 extra trades.

James · 26/06/2014 at 20:40

Hi Community,

Should I trade in Chad Wingard, Rioli or Zorko for Impey or save some cash next week so that I'm able to afford Brent Harvey?


    BCHawks · 26/06/2014 at 20:58

    I'd go Wingard.

Matt · 26/06/2014 at 20:58

The teams are in, my team is:
Bartel, Simpson, Birchall, Jaensch, Suckling, Langford (McDonald, Bews)
Ablett, Selwood, Beams, Murphy, Griffen, Thomas, Dunstan, Aish (Taylor, J.Martin)
Sandilands, Cox (Derickx, Ceglar)
Dangerfield, D.Martin, Parker, Zorko, Roughead, Wingard (Ambrose, Cameron)

I have 10 trades left and $69,200 in the bank. Dont really want to make more than 1 trade a week giving me around 5 trades for finals.
But I'm in need for some help. Suggestions community?

    Hazey · 26/06/2014 at 21:27

    Got some work to do in the mids there Matt! Griffen down to Miles to generate cash or Griffen to someone like Stevie J?

      Hazey · 26/06/2014 at 21:35

      Actually… Derickx to a cheapbruck like Brown then one of yr rookie Mids to an elite mid would be the way to go perhaps?

      Uses 2 trades but I really think you nneed to muscle up in there!

        Matt · 26/06/2014 at 22:07

        Which rookie should I consider upgrading and which elite should i bring in?

          Hazey · 26/06/2014 at 22:24

          Brown or Thurlow maybe as rookie rucks, then Fyfe, JPK, Boomer, Rocky or Libba maybe? Sloane if yr short of cash.

            Matt · 26/06/2014 at 22:30

            Which midfielder would I pull the trigger on to get the elite?

          Sleepy · 27/06/2014 at 11:34

          Which Thomas do you have in MID? Daisy or Matt

            Matt · 27/06/2014 at 16:26


scano · 26/06/2014 at 21:06

should we bring in Fyfe? worried he might be rested

    Caz · 27/06/2014 at 01:07

    Don't think many freo players will be rested as there is a split round in round 18 and they will get a rest then. Freo will also want to make top 2 for a home final so will want to win as many games as possible.

bogga · 26/06/2014 at 21:09

Birchall or Hibberd? Langdon has served well but must be flicked

    MightyDonsFC · 26/06/2014 at 21:22

    As much as it pains me to say, birchall just

      Derek · 26/06/2014 at 21:30

      Stratten back this week for hawks. Birchell won’t need to play as a tall. Will get back to his run and kick. Good pick

        bogga · 27/06/2014 at 19:20

        Yeah, I agree. Thanks for the advice lads

Dean · 26/06/2014 at 21:14

Rockcliff or Kennedy this week for Griffen, will pick up the other next week anyhow, just wanting to know who is more chance of hitting BE

    Hazey · 26/06/2014 at 21:28

    Sloane is a cheaper option also, uber consistent wothcI think 4 scores >120 n none less than 80.

      Dean · 26/06/2014 at 21:42

      Yea i like Sloane as a player for sure, but i think coming to end of year, with 2 slots left in MID, and plenty of cash, id rather grab the best of the best

        Hazey · 26/06/2014 at 22:03

        In that case maybe Kennedy. Rocky is a beast but playing a lone hand at times which ‘might’ wear him down. Role change now possible with Brown gone too?

HiltonKid · 26/06/2014 at 21:47

Kersten or Honeychurch on field???!

    big aggots · 26/06/2014 at 21:52

    Cats play tomorrow. If Kersten avoids the vest (which he should) then have him on the field. Church mouse looks like the sub with Gia out.

    Donavan · 26/06/2014 at 21:56

    Is your F8 playing? You maybe able to loophole with Kersten playing Friday night.

Donavan · 26/06/2014 at 21:50

No trades this week.

Just 1 simple discission to make.

Who should be my F6 – Zorko or McGovern (no loophole available)

The other will be Fwd Emerg.

    big aggots · 27/06/2014 at 10:54

    Zorko averages 104 at the Gabba this year, 76 on the road.
    McGovern faces Freo who apply the blowtorch to young players.
    Zorko for mine

      Donavan · 27/06/2014 at 18:56

      Thanks aggots,

      Your analysis has won me over.

Hazey · 26/06/2014 at 22:21

Zorko down to Miles, pocket $100k then final upgrade of Shenton to Parker then in 2 weeks final mid upgradevwith Miles moving to M9…..crazy talk?

Would leave me with 4 trades.

    Donavan · 26/06/2014 at 22:26

    Keep Zorko, surely the Lions can not play as bad as they did last week, again this season.

    I would hold onto trades, unless you will miss the finals. If you are looking at missing the finals then trade Shenton to Miles.

      Hazey · 26/06/2014 at 22:39

      Thanks for the sanity check bro, must be the mad heat out here making me go troppo! The old trade finger sure loves itching.

      Had a peek at the Freo draw too and couldn’t go past Fyfe. If they restbtjem, hopefully it’s Barlow one week, Teen Wolf the next.

    Kristofor · 27/06/2014 at 14:45

    Zorko is hurting me too.. but no choice but to hold really.. him blasting out a 150 after I've traded him out would be the end of me.

Cratzy · 27/06/2014 at 00:11

Stop trading hazey. You are losing to plot man.

    Hazey · 27/06/2014 at 08:52

    It’s the best part about the game… Lucky I’m not a trader in real life. I’d either be broke or living it hard Wolf of Wall street style!

mike · 27/06/2014 at 07:09

There’s good chances of double dipping this week. Tonight J Selwood VC loophole. (Ablett VC and Libba C a good option also). Sat Stef emergency – If tons up Charles Cameron subbed in for Dauhlhaus. If Shenton (e) tons up Saturday, Acres in for Kanewick (pod). Happy coaching!!

    Tinnies · 27/06/2014 at 19:07

    Going Ablett and Libba myself.

    Paul · 28/06/2014 at 11:53

    …but Shenton and Acres play for the same team so you won't be able to bring Acres on after that game!

Blake · 27/06/2014 at 07:18

JPK or Fyfe + 50k

    Donavan · 27/06/2014 at 08:39

    JPK for me

    Derek · 27/06/2014 at 08:55

    JPK is SC gold.

    Hazey · 27/06/2014 at 08:56

    If it’s yr last spot JPK. If u have 2 spots get Fyfe this week (Freo ridiculously good run coming up) n JPK asap.

      blake · 27/06/2014 at 16:22

      cheers guys!

    big aggots · 27/06/2014 at 10:58

    Both gold but Fyfe for mine with the 50K change.
    Fyfe BE 60 odd, he won't be this cheap again. JPK has a 150 BE and might be able to get him later.

TOM · 27/06/2014 at 07:19

Thoughts on langdon to hooker

    Mozz · 27/06/2014 at 07:59

    don't like that trade: very inconsistent player hooker is. You want to be getting a premo for Langdon

    Derek · 27/06/2014 at 08:54

    sideways trade to me. similar output.

Bob · 27/06/2014 at 07:28

What is ben browns job security like?

    Garglesnarf FC · 27/06/2014 at 10:18

    It’s just OK. He performed well enough as a forward to give him another week, but with Majak doing well in the twos I think Brown is always going to be one bad game away from being dropped.

      deadly · 27/06/2014 at 15:19

      And Currie might get another run too when back from injury?

Shaun · 27/06/2014 at 07:44

Thoughts on Scott d Thompson??? Seriously considering for D6 position!!

    Kristofor · 27/06/2014 at 13:52

    I've done exactly that. Langdon out for Thompson… he's a bit of a gamble.. should get at least 70's-80's with potential of high scores now and then.

      Shaun · 27/06/2014 at 18:06

      Yeah thanks mate!

Mozz · 27/06/2014 at 08:43

My trades for the week:

Ambrose –> Kersten for some cash generation

Trade out Acres (MID), swing langdon into the MID and then trade in Hibberd in DEF.

Do people think that this is a good idea? I know that Langdon will bleed cash but i don't see when else i could open up the DEF/MID swing set. He will be on the bench aswell so does him bleeding cash reall matter?
Cheers community ๐Ÿ™‚

    Derek · 27/06/2014 at 08:53

    if you have the cash to go straight Langdon >> Hibberd I would do that.

    Keeping a trade is just as good as having a swingset.

    Ambrose still has a low BE and might go up a bit more. Kersten has only played 1 game, so you can watch him for another week. You might like the look of Honeychurch better than Kersten.

    Kristofor · 27/06/2014 at 13:55

    I'm waiting another week to watch Kersten.. will bring him in for Shenton or Taylor (Bris) next week if he scores reasonably.

Mebois · 27/06/2014 at 08:54

hi guys, im finding it difficult this week. have 9 trades left with 241k left in the bank.

DEF: hibberd, swallow, mcveigh, bartel, b. smith, hanley (kolo, langford)
MID: ablett, pendlebury, beams, libba, sloane, cotchin, langdon, shenton (hallahan, acres)
RUC: sandilands, jacobs (currie, thurlow)
FWD: danger, gunston, pav, wingard, tex, s. martin (mcgovern, cameron)

stuck on ideas, want to trade langdon to a premo mid but can only afford 611k. thoughts.

    Hazey · 27/06/2014 at 09:14


      Mebois · 27/06/2014 at 09:30

      thinking prestia, selwood, and greenwood but he may be too risky.

    M Honeychurch · 27/06/2014 at 09:30

    Shenton to Parker instead?

      Mebois · 27/06/2014 at 09:34

      shenton can still make a bit of cash but langdon will fall at a rapid rate so he is my main concern

        Garglesnarf FC · 27/06/2014 at 10:09

        Having an M/D in your mids is precious at this time of year and while he might drop a little this week, he generally scores more points than Shenton and will make a superb M9 come finals.

        I would keep him and concentrate on adding two premo mids. Shenton to Parker is a good move, as it keeps you flexible across every line. JSelwood would be solid as well.

        When McGovern finishes fattening he can provide your final cash upgrade via either Langford or Kolo.

Mofoburger · 27/06/2014 at 08:54

Will Sammy Lloyd play???

    Sleepy · 27/06/2014 at 11:42

    Hey Mofo Lloyd listed as emergency so could be close to getting a recall

    Mitchell · 27/06/2014 at 13:37

    Traded him out last week. heard he wasn't going too well in the 2's

Derek · 27/06/2014 at 09:28

need to upgrade Daisy Thomas. Have $516k to spend on someone. NDS is $518k.

any suggestions.

    Tombe · 27/06/2014 at 09:56

    Probs Stevie J but is a risk

      Azmataz · 29/06/2014 at 05:51

      Andrew Swallow will be a good POD and has a good run home.

big aggots · 27/06/2014 at 11:11

Awkward price. Do you need swingsets? Hodge, Hanley, Burgoyne (defs) wait for Sam Mitchell etc. Parker, Wingard (fwds). Otherwise I still think Harley Bennell is a 560K stock. He just needs continuity and after Collingwood, they do have a soft draw heading home. Some risk with it but plenty of upside.

MightyDonsFC · 27/06/2014 at 11:25

Cotchin, Lids, Joey, Steven, Wingard, Shuey, Ziebell, Hibberd, Stanton or any other bloke under $464 800?

big aggots · 27/06/2014 at 11:25

My backline is ordinary and costing me games – McV, Swallow, Hibberd, Simpson, LMac, Langdon (BMartin, Georgiou)
9 trades but only 41K.
Short of robbing a bank, I was thinking of something even more dangerous.
Minson to Ben Brown makes 387K. I can swing Stef Martin into rucks as R2 via Thurlow. (Sandi R1)
This cash would allow Langdon to Bartel this week. Then LMac to Malceski or others next week.
Is this crazy?

    MightyDonsFC · 27/06/2014 at 11:26

    Do you have Derickx or ambrose?

      big aggots · 27/06/2014 at 12:02

      No Derickx or Ambrose
      Team is:
      McV, Swall, Simp, Hibb, Langdon, LMac (BMartin, Georgiou)
      Abl, Pend, Libba, Jelwood, Beams, Stev J, Danger, Cotch (Miles, O'Rourke (loop))
      Minson, Sandi (Thurlow, Currie)
      Boomer, Parker, Breust, Buddy, Zorko, Motlop (Stef Martin, Cameron)

        Derek · 27/06/2014 at 13:13

        Miles is to much cash on bench. Downgrade him to honeychurch. You might need SMartin when Freo play Saints and Sandi is rested (100% chance of that).

          Hazey · 27/06/2014 at 14:35

          Go crazy and downgrade Cotchin n put Miles in at M8 while he fattens then upgrade Langdon or McD to a premo!

          You’ll not lose any scoring power n make enough cash from the downgrade n Miles price rising for a few weeks for prob 3 premo upgrades!

          PS – I have undiagnosed CTD (Compulsive Trades Disease) and cannot be held liable for any bad outcomes!

RooBoy · 27/06/2014 at 11:52

Hi Community,

I’d really like some help this week, am stuck whether to trade (if so who?) or not.

DEF: Bartel, McVeigh, Swallow, Jaensch, Burgoyne, H Shaw (Langford, Laidler)

MID: Ablett, Pendlebury, Rocky, Beams, Selwood, Murphy, Stevie J, Goddard (Hallahan, Acres)

Rucks: Sandi, Mumford(Derickz, Thurlow)

FWD: Harvey, Danger, D Martin, Zorko, Franklin, S Martin (Ambrose, Shenton)

Have 6 trades left with $19K in the bank, any thoughts hugely appreciated!

    Garglesnarf FC · 27/06/2014 at 12:46

    Like BA says, do nothing. Jump on a cash cow either next week or the week after just to give you cash in the bank for trades down the track.

      Azmataz · 29/06/2014 at 05:58

      Solid looking team there mate. If you were to trade out anyone, I would move on Jaensch for Malceski. But yeah definitely do a cash grab, like Shenton to honeychurch or Dericx to Brown. You might need cover in the mids though, so maybe cull Hallahan instead. Where are you ranked?

    Derek · 27/06/2014 at 13:06

    Good team. only thing I would do is cash grab Derickx to have some money in your war chest for the run home.

    RooBoy · 27/06/2014 at 13:23

    Thanks guys, pretty much what I was thinking too.
    Will probably wait a week on the Derickz to Brown to have another look at him (pretty happy Derickz not named as he won't drop in price).
    Can also wait a week on Zac Jones to get a look a Max Warren from North or Dan McStay from Brissie.

big aggots · 27/06/2014 at 12:07

RooBoy, that's a pretty good setup you've thrown together. I wouldn't trade unless you want to generate $$$.
If you want 1 trade Derickz to Brown, Langford to Zak Jones or Hallahan to Honeychurch for mid cover.
Save some trades for Jaensch to Sam Mitchell down the track.

Mitchell · 27/06/2014 at 13:15

What to do with Kade Simpson????

    SCaddict · 27/06/2014 at 13:31

    Keep him of course. Just hit a flat spot but will bounce back sooner rather than later, maybe even this Sunday against the old foe.

      Mitchell · 27/06/2014 at 13:32

      I'll stick fat with him cheers

        Azmataz · 29/06/2014 at 05:59

        Yeah Hold for sure

Jarrod05 · 27/06/2014 at 13:20

Hey community! Is it worth getting boomer Harvey? Or is he too expensive? What other options do you recommend?


    SCaddict · 27/06/2014 at 13:32

    Paying too much of a premium right now I think. Parker is better value if you don't already have him. An absolute steal at $485K for a player averaging a tonne and still improving week to week.

    Kristofor · 27/06/2014 at 13:54

    Stoked I got on him at his basement price… but now he costs too much.. better options for his coin.

      Azmataz · 29/06/2014 at 05:59

      Not at that prce. Wait until he drops a bit – that 70 will drop his price (finally!) I am going to jump on at some stage.

Nick · 27/06/2014 at 13:31

Hey Guys,
JUst after some advice whether to hold trades until next week (have a certain win this round) and what i should plan for trades next week. worried about my lack of bench cover!

DEF: Bartel, McVeigh, Swallow, Burgoyne, Hanley, Hurn (Georgiou, Tippett)

MID: Ablett, Beams, Selwood, Dal Santo, Stevie J, Wines, Vince, Shenton (Hallahan, Acres)

Rucks: Sandilands, Jacobs (Derickx, Currie)

FWD: D Martin, Danger, Breust, Zorko, Wingard, LeCras (Ambrose, Cameron)

6 trades left with $25,600 in the bank
Thoughts are much appreciated!

    Mozz · 27/06/2014 at 14:36

    I would definitely hold onto trades this week. Your team is 1 away from full premo so there's not much to worry about!
    If you're going to be in the finals as number 5-8, you would want 6 trades left
    If you're going to be in the finals as number 1-4, you would want 4 trades left

    The only trade I can see (assuming there are no injuries) is an upgrade of Shenton. Maybe in 2 weeks you could downgrade Hallahan to Honeychurch and then upgrade Shenton to a premo and VOILA! Your team is finished

    big aggots · 27/06/2014 at 14:58

    Hallahan to Honeychurch next week? Bench cover and approx $200K for last 5 trades.
    I'd also look at swapping Shenton with D'Field this week – then loophole Shenton with Ambrose as Cameron is still missing.

    Nick · 27/06/2014 at 17:04

    cheers for the feedback guys! i should be top 4 for the finals. unfortunately ill be overseas for the finals… so looking at using all trades before then!

      Azmataz · 29/06/2014 at 06:01

      You can still get on the Net overseas Nick! I think you should go Hallahan to Honeychurch. No mid bench cover is a bit dangerous…

Mitchell · 27/06/2014 at 13:34

Would it be stupid to downgrade Marc Murphy to Anthony Miles to make cash for finals time
8 trades and 100k in the bank at the moment and a ruck and a forward spot away from full premium

    SCaddict · 27/06/2014 at 13:55

    Not a trade I would personally recommend particularly as Miles has already jumped $75K. Due for a quiet one too as surely oppositions will afford him more attention soon.

    Think you are better off trying to make cash out of the likes of a Kersten, Brown, Honeychurch and maybe even Zak Jones and hang on to Smurf in the process.

      Mozz · 27/06/2014 at 14:31

      agreed. Don't go Smurf –> Miles. Hold your trades where possble

        Azmataz · 29/06/2014 at 06:02

        Definite No

Jarrod05 · 27/06/2014 at 14:06

Thanks Cadd, yeah I’ve had Parker since the start of the year. I am leaning toward maybe Wingard or LeCras??? Thoughts?

Samuelscoach · 27/06/2014 at 14:17

Thoughts on bringing in marc murphy?

    Itchy Nuts Pieman · 27/06/2014 at 14:48

    The late hammy problem last week has me worried

skateordie · 27/06/2014 at 15:04

community.. Rockliff or B Harvey and 100,000? Pushing Dangerfield from mid to forward opening up a spot in the mid. Keep in mind my forward line still has a rookie on the field while my mid with one of these options is at full premium.

Mozz · 27/06/2014 at 15:19

Hibberd, H.Shaw or Duffield? Have 45 mins to make a trade so would love someone's help quickly!!

Jarrod05 · 27/06/2014 at 15:25


John · 27/06/2014 at 15:25

Hey everyone
Do i trade kane mitchell to cotchin which gives me enough cash to do ambrose to nick riewold next week
Or do i trade kane mitchell to stevie j, bartel, or dal santo but keep ambrose
Help pleaase

    MightyDonsFC · 27/06/2014 at 17:56

    Don't bring in Nroo!

    Rhubarb · 27/06/2014 at 18:28

    Consider K Mitchell to Wingard (30k cheaper than Cotchin) this week then look at Ambrose to a scoring mid next week by swinging Wingard forward. If you have the trades to downgrade another cash cow, you might be able to stretch to a fallen premo like S Johnson.

Rowdy · 27/06/2014 at 15:34

down to my last mid spot, already have Ablett Pendlebury Libba Jelwood Sloane Priddis and Beams so i was thinking either JPK Ward Rock or Fyfe.What are peoples thoughts or is there someone else i should consider?i have enough cash to get anybody also have 10 trades left

    Rhubarb · 27/06/2014 at 18:41

    Solid Midfield Rowdy. If worried about further POD then Ward or JPK, otherwise Fyfe. Without knowing the rest of your team, Parker or even R Gray next week after a further price drop might help open a swing set and save a bit of $ for later.

Matt · 27/06/2014 at 15:52

Hey Community,
My team is as follows:
DEF: Bartel, Swallow, Malceski, Burgoyne, Hibberd, Enright (Cutler, Georgiou)
MID: Ablett, Pendlebury, Kennedy, Selwood, Beams, Rockcliff, Goddard, Griffen (Hartung, Acres)
Ruck: Jacobs, NicNat (Derickx, King)
FWD: Danger, Martin, Zorko, Dahlhaus, Wingard, Ambrose (Fasolo, Shenton)

I have 9 trades and $25k in bank.

I'm thinking this week Derickx to B.Brown to free up much needed cash and then Griffen to Barlow to cover a donut. Leaves me with $142K
Then next week Hartung to Honeychurch (or swing Shenton to mids and get Kersten) and Fasolo to Parker. Leaves me with $50k and 5 trades for finals.
Also leaves me a little short with bench cover in Backline and Rucks but I can live with that for now.
Thoughts, recommendations please…

Nik · 27/06/2014 at 16:10

With only 7 trades left should I trade Langdon for Mcveigh? Or trade cutler to enright therefore having good cover on the bench in Langdon when he comes back?

James · 27/06/2014 at 16:12

What to do with Mceovy ?

Matt · 27/06/2014 at 16:35

Best trade in for Derickx? Already have Sandilands and Cox, so not looking for anything special.

    TOM · 27/06/2014 at 17:07

    archie smith

      Matt · 27/06/2014 at 17:28

      Preferably someone who will play

    Derek · 27/06/2014 at 18:28

    Sandi will be rested for the Freo game against Saints. He won't want to travel to Melbourne on a 6 day break. that is round 18. Get your team ready for that if you are keeping Sandi

Simon T · 27/06/2014 at 17:15

12 trades left but need to keep winning to make the finals. Want to trade out Langdon. Should I trade him out for Thompson (NM) or Jaench (ADEL) who are potential premiums or should I trade him to Zac Jones (SYD) to generate a lot of cash which would help with future trades but not sure about his job security or score potential.

Any comments/thoughts/advice, greatly appreciated Community.

Michael · 27/06/2014 at 17:37

Thoughts on Acres-HChurch.
Gives me mid backup (also have O'Brien but not named) + another mid-fwd swing which will make it easier to trade Taylor up to final mid premo.
Only have 5 trades left after this though, should I wait until after next week to give HChurch a couple of runs?
Final mid premo next week will leave me 3 trades and 1 fwd away from full premo.

    George · 27/06/2014 at 20:04

    You'll be VERY low on trades by the end of it. If you want to really contend league finals I would hold off until he is on the bubble, and only then trade him in if he strings a few decent scores together, avoids the green vest and ends up with a really low breakeven.

MightyDonsFC · 27/06/2014 at 17:57

Trent cotchin or jack ziebell? Both have relatively easy finals run, could I bank on ziebell finding some consistency or cotchins consistent 85+

    big aggots · 27/06/2014 at 18:38

    Cotchin MDFC. Got it 30 times last week and could've turned the corner.

Cjay · 27/06/2014 at 18:21

How many times has Ports Impey had the green vest and what the chances for this week?

    Ollie · 27/06/2014 at 18:28

    hasn't been sub yet from memory and i think port will go with sam gray as sub

      Cjay · 27/06/2014 at 18:30

      Thanks Ollie seen plenty of low scores and assumed they may have been sub affected

    big aggots · 27/06/2014 at 18:40

    Definitely had it against Cats as I needed 20 for a league win and he got 12…..

      dannyyboyy · 27/06/2014 at 19:03

      ouch! with a BE of 9 this week i hope he goes ok, im aiming to trade him next week for kersten. hopefuly he has played enough games by now that he wont get vested to often but who knows. if u have another option to put on the field maybe go with that

    Jokers Wild · 28/06/2014 at 00:24

    Twice (Round 6 & Round 7) but I wouldn't expect him to get it this week.

Ollie · 27/06/2014 at 18:25

Gday Jock
What do i do with langdon because he’s got to go however i can only get a defender for him.

Any thoughts?


dannyyboyy · 27/06/2014 at 18:27

i have 609k to spend and i can get a mid or forward upgrade, due to lots of swing players. im thinkin gray or parker up forward, or a barlow or goddard for the mid. gray or parker is price dependant, but will spend the lot if i can get the right mid. what do u guys reakon?

    dannyyboyy · 27/06/2014 at 20:24

    i went gray, the trade feels like the right move. im happy, for now.

Crowmagnon · 27/06/2014 at 18:31

I'm considering Hurn. Am I the only one?

Derek · 27/06/2014 at 18:42

Big Ben will play this week. Will be a late inclusion.

He is named as an emergency! he is ready to go, they are just playing games.

    Derek · 27/06/2014 at 18:44

    Moribito also named as an emergency, don't be surprised to see him get named.

      Dustin · 30/06/2014 at 15:47

      I was hoping you were right but both ddnt even play!

Shaun · 27/06/2014 at 18:55

Thoughts on Scott D Thompson as a D6??

Baggy Pants · 27/06/2014 at 19:06

First time on the forum thanks for all the great words of wisdom Jock Higgo Crouching and the rest of the crew, and of course thanks to the community. What's the communities thoughts on either Grant Birchall or Shaun Burgoyne as a replacement for Langdon

jkj · 27/06/2014 at 19:29

max warren js please!!

chandanrajdb · 27/06/2014 at 21:21

Hello Community,

I am ranked 137 overall and got 5 trades left……1 rookie (C Shenton) still left on the ground in the midfield but got $315,000 in the bank….I can do just use one trade and trade shenton to any player mentioned below…..need serious and genuine comments regarding who to bring in…..would really appreciate community’s thoughts on this trade……

1. JPK
2. T Rockliff
3. B Harvey
4. N Fyfe
5. L Parker

I need help…seriously need the community’s thoughts on this trade……

Obviously I can afford all the players mentioned above if I trade Shenton out……


    Mathew · 27/06/2014 at 21:44

    JPK great run in a great team that is very consistant and also a POD in 10% of teams.
    Good luck

    OldOcker · 27/06/2014 at 22:41

    Get back to you later tonight mate I will study the stats to give you my best opinion.

    Cheers bloke.

      chandanrajdb · 27/06/2014 at 22:45

      Thanks mate…..Very much appreciated…..appreciate your wisdom here….

      Common community……need some real wisdom this week……


    Cam_H · 27/06/2014 at 22:43


    Envious of your position, and wish you all the best as you hunt down that $50,000!

    Is a Fwd/Mid of any value to you, or is a Mid 'specialist' OK?

    Enviable position to be in – well done Raj!
    Price or BE's aren't relevant to you, so JPK all the way. He's a contested pill beast, team's winning, last 13 games all over 100. Is reliable even on quieter days and can post 150's when planets align. *sighs* Tossed up between him and Cotchin many frustrating weeks back….

    DJT · 28/06/2014 at 01:19

    If last trade JPK 100% but with 4 trades left you want some cash so your able to sideways trade to anyone (Just my thoughts)

    OldOcker · 28/06/2014 at 01:48

    Hi Raj, Great job with the ranking mate, I am back with an opinion because this is a tough call for your final decision.
    I know you have put up your team a few times mate but I am assuming you have GAJ, Pendles, Liber.
    Unless you need that mid/fwd swing I would be looking at JPK or Rocky.
    Most of the early leading teams had JPK from game one.

    Looking at the last 7 games of the season ave for the last 3 years.

    Josh P Kennedy:
    2011 96.7 Season Average 96.1
    2012 127.1 " 120.2
    2013 96.7 " 105.4
    2014 ? Current Average 121.1

    Tom Rockliff:
    2011 129.6 Season Average 113.6
    2012 76 " 97.3
    2013 129.4 " 109.7
    2014 ? Current Average 123.3

    Very tough call to make between these 2 players and I would like to have them both. My gut call would be Rocky only because I was dissapointed in JPK last year.
    BUT: This is your call and good luck with it.
    Parker is a must have in the forward line in my opinion.
    Harvey can be very inconsistent in his scoring when you need him most.
    Fyfe on stats compared to JPK and Rocky does not stack up at the end of the season.
    If you want the stats for the last 3 years in excel format Drop an email to "[email protected]" Just put in the subject heading "Ocker Said" I will make sure you get them.. This also breaks down the season into thirds to give you an idea as to how players start and finish the season.

    Cheers Mate and great job on the ranking would love to see you win it mate.

      chandanrajdb · 29/06/2014 at 11:11

      Hi Ocker,

      Thanks for your wisdom and stats above mate much appreciated……I went with the safe option and traded Shenton to JPK….and I am very happy with his debut in my team…..


        OldOcker · 29/06/2014 at 15:48

        Good onya mate the decision was yours,
        I wish you all the best, you are a very important part of the community mate, keep up the good work and never give up mate.


James · 27/06/2014 at 22:27


Take Ambrose's 53 or go with Impey?


    big aggots · 27/06/2014 at 22:35

    Hard one. Not sure Impey would go much higher even without the vest.

    OldOcker · 28/06/2014 at 01:07

    Hi James, Impey has only beaten that score on 4 occasions in ten games. The odds of him getting better are slim I would take it.
    But if you are confident of a win this week the risk could be worthwhile.


OldOcker · 27/06/2014 at 22:30

What a bloody grouse game of footy to watch tonight. Great to see the Geelong blokes with Chappy after the game, Has to be one of the best I have seen this year. I don't have Foxtel.

Hope all went well with Super-Coach.

Cheers Everyone.

michael · 27/06/2014 at 22:33

Anyone else not getting score updates through Footy Star tonight?

    Cam_H · 27/06/2014 at 22:45

    No scores tonight pour moi either … problems with their staff travelling to the game apparently.

Billy · 27/06/2014 at 22:51

Take selwood 138 for captain. or keep the C on Gaz??

    LJB · 27/06/2014 at 23:06

    Face the same dilemma, the bloke I'm playing and I both have gazz as captain.

    DJT · 27/06/2014 at 23:14

    I'd bank 276 for one player any day

      David · 28/06/2014 at 00:56

      Thats Ablets average so yeah take the score

    PJay · 28/06/2014 at 09:35

    Gary vs Hawthorn in Launceston? Hawks haven't lost there in last 9 visits. They beat the suns by 99 points in round 4, but GAJ still had 35 possessions. I have the same decision, my opponent has GAJ so may just play it safe.

big aggots · 27/06/2014 at 23:07

Steven Motlop wound back from 104 post siren to 98 despite 2 match winning goals in the 4th. Must be related to Robbie Gray.

    David · 28/06/2014 at 01:01

    lol i hear you mate, think its time to update the scoring mechanics in SC the threshold needs to go now surely. No justice to a player who has X factor or dominating in a game sometimes. Then i see players who pick up cheap possies who score as good or better when there's no pressure on them or breaking the game open. Just marki then kick or handball no tackles or frees for to boost the individual score, then they ton up? What a joke

      michael · 28/06/2014 at 13:27

      I agree – Heppell’s 40 possies deserved more surely!

Caz · 28/06/2014 at 00:54

Hi guys, birchell or malceski for Langdon. Thnx.

    OldOcker · 28/06/2014 at 02:05


Benno_S · 28/06/2014 at 08:57

Thoughts on taking selwood's vc score of 138 or stick with the little master?

    BCHawks · 28/06/2014 at 09:31

    I would take anything over 130 so definitely take it. Even if Ablett does score big and gets 150 you are only loosing 12 points.

      Pjay · 28/06/2014 at 10:38

      x 2 = 24 points

        Thomas · 28/06/2014 at 10:56

        No. Wrong.
        138×2 = 276 + 150 = 426
        150×2 = 300 + 138 = 438

          Pjay · 28/06/2014 at 11:15

          Wow, that must be a magic trick! I never was good at maths. Thanks for that, I'm going to take Selwoods 138 for captain now.

            BundyBear · 28/06/2014 at 16:34

            Hmmm bad move

              DJT · 28/06/2014 at 23:50

              All that maths for nothing… Seriously community no more loop holes on vice captain…
              Big fat "C" on Gazza and it ain't moving off him for the rest of the season!!!

The benchmark · 28/06/2014 at 09:31

It’s probably been covered but did anyone else trade a decent ruck man (gold member for me) and downgrade them to b.brown and play Martin as there 2nd ruck man?

    big aggots · 28/06/2014 at 11:10

    I toyed with that idea all week. If Brown plays well and Martin keeps scoring, it's still an option as Minson hasn't set the world on fire and I need the cash.

Tim Cahill · 28/06/2014 at 10:03

Would like to pick the brain of the community regarding my position with Tom Langdon. I have him, 7 trades and 50k in the bank. I think I have 3 options:

1. Upgrade to with Jaensch, S Thompson or Bob Murphy. They seem to be the only options around that 420k price range.
2. Downgrade to Zak Jones or Mitch Brown. with the plan of upgrading a non-playing bench (Georgiou) into either Simpson or S Mitchell in the future.
3. Hold.

I'm a bit lost on this one, could go either way to be honest so would definitely appreciate some assistance from the community.

    Cam_H · 28/06/2014 at 16:12


    I'm in a similar spot; only 6 trades but a bigger warchest. Not sure on the right move myself, but I've opted to hold (and could consider bringing Sam Mitchell back in depending on how all that pans out). Best of luck with whatever you choose.

      Tim Cahill · 29/06/2014 at 09:32

      Thanks Cam. Thinking I'll hold as well, provided he's not a late withdrawal. I've got a close league match that I need to win so might have to trade to ensure the win!

BCHawks · 28/06/2014 at 12:09

Jock just revealed his trade. Balls of Steel!

Chris · 28/06/2014 at 12:52

Who to loophole

I have Taylor walker on my bench as F7 and a non scoring whereas the other,

Therefore I can loophole pretty much any Player who I think mightn’t score well, then I get to choose whether I keep his score or pick walker over him..

Who would you loophole out of:

Danger field, Martin, zorko, roughead or Martin

Basically it is either zorko or Martin,

I’m leaning towards zorko as he had put some ordinary scores of late

Chris · 28/06/2014 at 12:53

    DJT · 28/06/2014 at 23:57

    Vintage zorko… When you back him in he lets you down and as soon as you give up on him… BANG!

David · 28/06/2014 at 16:15

Why did Birchall get subbed ?
He was doing awesome late in the 3rd and early last in the last quater.

Tommykwr · 28/06/2014 at 16:44

Do I take abletts 157 or keep libba as captain

    Jayden · 28/06/2014 at 17:11

    In the same boat, however for me to take it, need to take sucklings 70 over either malcheski or mcveigh.

      Jayden · 28/06/2014 at 17:12

      Disregard that, still got currie and lobbe ๐Ÿ™‚

    OldOcker · 28/06/2014 at 20:17

    I think I might take GAJ's score and loophole Currie with Sandi.

    The Vampire · 29/06/2014 at 00:00

    hmmmm lets see- if libba gets 170 your total overall gain is 13 points? hmmmmm

    Libba wont get 170.

Ryan · 28/06/2014 at 17:18

Howdy community, took a punt and put the VC on dusty, didn't pay off. Not 100% sure who to make the captain this week. Kennedy vs gws, Libba vs dees or pendles vs blues?
Thanks guys

    OldOcker · 28/06/2014 at 20:19

    Hi Ryan, In my opinion Liber without a doubt.
    I had GAJ as VC into Liber C But I am naturally going to take GAJ score.


      Ryan · 28/06/2014 at 23:01

      Cheers mate, will take a punt on libba

        Patsy · 28/06/2014 at 23:04

        The thing with Libba is that even when he doesn't touch the ball, he tackles like crazy!! And points for tackles are concrete, not dependent on efficiency. Good choice

James · 28/06/2014 at 18:06

Should i take Shenton's 74 or take the punt on Tex Walker?

    DJT · 28/06/2014 at 23:46

    You got Shenton in because his a cash cow, you got Tex in for his scoring capabilities for his price so back your gut in and back Tex in to score higher then Shenton

piewood1 · 28/06/2014 at 18:42

1008/ 7 – so far 7 players & seven tons…..put the vice on Ablett & will take his 157.

The Filth · 28/06/2014 at 23:07

1966 pts with six to play – Jacobs, R Gray, Pendles, Beams, Simpson and Danger.

Lions players made up for their poor scores last week..

    The Filth · 28/06/2014 at 23:21

    Oops – SEVEN to play – how could I forget Libba…

piewood1 · 28/06/2014 at 23:46

2049 with 5 to go – Pendles, Libba, Beams, Smurph & Danger

NutSack · 28/06/2014 at 23:57

Finally heading for a score ABOVE projection. Taken long enough. Currently on 2197 with Beams, Minson, Gray and Wingard to come. Hoping for 2800 but will be happy with 2550.

PS my opponent who is top of the league will get a rude shock when he sees C M Crouch is gonna pump me out 277 : )

VC on GAJ 157 + loophole on Taylor 120 = M Crouch my highest scoring player ๐Ÿ™‚


Horse · 29/06/2014 at 00:13

1814 from 15 with Liberatore (C), Pendles, Beams, A Walker, Lobbe, Danger & Jaensch to come. The top round score of 2720 will be smashed this week surely?

    SCaddict · 29/06/2014 at 03:37

    I'm on track for around 2750 so yes there will be some truly monstrous scores this round.

    The Filth · 29/06/2014 at 15:54

    Hope you were able to change Libba as captain….

Anthony · 29/06/2014 at 03:07

Pearce Hanley, and Stefan Martin really really proud of them this week even zorko

    Anthony · 29/06/2014 at 03:10

    with 2048 6 more to play Tex,Chad,K.Mitchell,Danger,Simpson and Beams surely i have a chance going for the $$$

      SCaddict · 29/06/2014 at 12:07

      Wouldn't get your hopes up. 2650 will be around par this week which means there will be some buggers who get close to 3,000!

Donavan · 29/06/2014 at 08:43

2075 from 17. Still have Pendles, Beams, Gray, Dangerfield and Dahlhaus to play.

Hoping for at least 2600, maybe 2700.

Breaking new ground' as best prior to this week was 2456.

Tim Cahill · 29/06/2014 at 09:38

On 1861 from 14, with Libba, Pendles, Beams, Danger, Jacobs, Dahlhaus, T Walker and Langdon to play.

My personal best is somewhere in the high 2400s so looking to smash that this round!!!

Rick Grimes · 29/06/2014 at 09:58

1910 with Jacobs, Sloan, Libba, Danger, Gray, Beams, Simpson. Could go massive.

Wattsieesq · 29/06/2014 at 10:50

Sounds like everyone is doing fantastic this round. Great stuff.

Itchy Nuts Pieman · 29/06/2014 at 10:50

2000 with Pendles, beams, m murphy, Darlhaus, danger & Jacobs. Hoping for 2600+

Mangrove Jack · 29/06/2014 at 12:36

2027 with Beams, Boyd, Jacobs, Dangerfield, Murphy and Gray. Hoping for 2600 which will be my best

Loc6 · 29/06/2014 at 13:11

Should I take Taylor's 120 by trading Polec to a cheap mid/fwd player or save the trade and see what Polec gets.

Going for league win.

Any advice would be appreciated.

dannyyboyy · 29/06/2014 at 14:48

2093 with 6 left to play, simpson, lobbe, gray, pendles, beams and danger. its a big round for a lot of people im looking at 2600+

piewood1 · 29/06/2014 at 15:13

Libba????……only 8 disposals in 3 Quarters!

Adam · 29/06/2014 at 15:13

Libbas on my shopping list in a couple of weeks

OldOcker · 29/06/2014 at 15:56

I am going to win my main league this week which puts me in the top four of all five leagues this week.

The Filth · 29/06/2014 at 17:58

Langdon out – Late change for the Pies FYI for those who have him…

Big Ben · 29/06/2014 at 21:27

Might just crack 2600 myself this week boys, hot dog
