    Ben · 01/04/2015 at 22:27

    Newton is a tad overpriced I'd look for a cheaper option and use the cash elsewhere

      steve · 01/04/2015 at 22:29

      You kidding? The bloke averaged 68 from 55% game time

        jimbo · 01/04/2015 at 22:38

        Thinking the same.
        Overpriced???

          schmit · 01/04/2015 at 22:44

          surely he'll get a first round gig? any chance of the vest though? who would be a suitable replacement?

            jimbo · 01/04/2015 at 22:48

            No chance of vest for me.

    Kel · 02/04/2015 at 08:14

    just wondering can anyone help regarding how sc does not show you which players you have saved as emergencies or captain is this just happening to me

      Ron · 04/04/2015 at 12:46

      It is hard to see – but the background colour does change. Doesn't have C or VC or E like last year

    Tofor · 02/04/2015 at 13:59

    I've gone with Sheed instead of Newton.
    Tough call though.
    I want to pick Anderson (huge Hawks fan), but just think he'll get lots of vest and struggle to get into the 22..?

    Wllys Guns · 02/04/2015 at 16:43

    MIDS need more premos.

maka · 01/04/2015 at 22:07

Thoughts on Geary or Ibbotson?

    @TylerCArmstrong · 01/04/2015 at 22:10

    Tossing up between defensive mid pricers also Maka, I'm liking Ibbo, Henderson and KK. But Geary… hmm idk, very risky and unproven. Would probably steer clear.

      maka · 01/04/2015 at 22:31

      Ibbo spare in defense you think?
      Or 3rd man lockdown?

        geoff_SCgod · 01/04/2015 at 22:41

        @Maka

        Hendo or T.Hunt could be a good option if you like.

        I'm falling for Geary though, because of how much the ball might stay there every week.

          samenglish · 01/04/2015 at 22:49

          Very good call Geoffy Boy lovin your thinking mate

            geoff_SCgod · 01/04/2015 at 22:55

            The community does big things to your imagination in Supercoach.
            Cheers mate.

          demon · 01/04/2015 at 23:59

          not sold on that theory, how many melbourne, gws, saints defenders have been big scorers the last 3 years?
          not many that I can think of!!!

            Ben · 02/04/2015 at 06:24

            L. Dunn for melb had a purple run last season

              maka · 02/04/2015 at 08:14

              LEKD0G mentioned Colin Garland. He has little chance going big every year, but sometimes he does have that purple patch as you said Ben with L.Dunn. Both give you spud scores. Not worth it. You really might actually have to wait and see about each of Ibbo's and Geary's Role.
              Uncertainty about Ibbo's.
              Unsure about Geary's too.

        @TylerCArmstrong · 01/04/2015 at 22:47

        I think he will play spare man in defence, and if i'm right will average 85+

          maka · 01/04/2015 at 22:49

          Good to have the re-assurance.

          Will the Freo defenders ever become fit though?

    SCaddict · 01/04/2015 at 22:29

    Both have shown ceilings that are much higher than their 2015 pricing so there is undeniable value there if they can play the first 6 or 7 games when you can look to upgrade them to dipping defensive guns.

    There is even a slight chance they could be keepers but more likely to be a stepping stone to a Malceski or Simpson.

      jimbo · 01/04/2015 at 22:37

      I think Geary could avg. 80-85 due to Saints getting a lot of the ball in the back-line. He can be a good ball user.
      I'm struggling on this decision.

        Jimi · 01/04/2015 at 23:00

        Feel your pain buddy, I've even gone as far to consider Laird and Bugg in the mix for my D4 equation, but for some unquantifiable reason my gut just keeps going to Geary.

        There's no logic to it, but that's who I'm going. If it all blows up in my face, he won't be the first to burn me.

          jimbo · 01/04/2015 at 23:05

          Ibbo – 50 odd points in an half – less then 20 points the next half (In 1 of his NABs.)
          Second half he played as a KPD (Key Position Defender)
          1st half he roamed free.

          High Risk = High Reward.

          Jarryn Geary.
          Looked solid through NAB – but thats only NAB.
          Saints could have a 1000 touches every game considering how their list looks at its current state.

          Again
          High Risk = High reward.

    maka · 01/04/2015 at 22:44

    cheers guys!

    Anymore thoughts please?

      vinnymac · 02/04/2015 at 12:37

      Ibbotson. I’m still not too sure who will take command in defense for the saints in this testing time for them.

Hangingforthelockout · 01/04/2015 at 22:11

Only have $3,700 left… Any suggestions welcome, obviously, rookies are subject to change as the teams are named

DEF: H. Shaw, M.Johnson, Newnes, Lumumba, B. Goodes, A. Saad (Goddard, Mcintosh)
MID: Ablett, Pendles, Fyfe, Beams, Griffin, Cripps, Heeney, Elllis-Yolmen (J. Anderson, T. Miller, Lambert)
RUCK: Goldstein, Maric (Read)
FWD: Gray, Martin, Swan, Salem, Clark, Tarrant (Lonie, Lamb)

    Jack · 02/04/2015 at 16:08

    I love this.

    Slatsy · 02/04/2015 at 17:26

    Seeing lots of similarities to my side

    Out: Johnson lamumba pendles Anderson Maric tarrant
    In: malceski Higgins jelwood vandenberg nicnat hogan

Samuel · 01/04/2015 at 22:25

who has better job security… Jed Anderson or Aaron Vandenberg?

    Ben · 01/04/2015 at 22:28

    Anderson at minute only because VDB hasn’t been promoted as yet.

    Anderson is a big sub risk though

    steve · 01/04/2015 at 22:30

    Anderson will cop the vest most of the games he plays

Ben · 01/04/2015 at 22:26

Might sound stupid but do I run with:

Def: Goodes
Mids: Ablett, Pendles, Fyfe, Selwood, Beams

Or

Def: Hibberd/Higgins
Mids: 4 of the above 5 mids + Griffen

    Ben · 01/04/2015 at 22:28

    Depends on how deep your backline is

    @TylerCArmstrong · 01/04/2015 at 23:13

    If the Goodes option goes down to d5 then that.

      Ben · 02/04/2015 at 07:05

      Goodes at D4

        Tyler · 02/04/2015 at 08:54

        Go with the 2nd one then griffin should do well and go higgins I reckon.

    @TylerCArmstrong · 02/04/2015 at 16:32

    2nd option then

jimmydowland · 01/04/2015 at 22:27

only have 6k left, please give thoughts!! should i have goodes in there ?? maybe remove cockatoo down to a lower rookie to get goodes??

Def: Shaw, newnes, hibered, ibboston, brown, mcintosh, hambling, saad
mid:ablett, sellwood,beams, kennedy, griffen, cripps, cockatoo, ellis-yolmon, heeney, miller, vanderburg
ruck: maric, minson, o'brien
forwards: gray, martin, shaw, bellchambers, salem, clark, hogan, lamb

please community !

    SCaddict · 01/04/2015 at 23:08

    If Goodes is named it's pretty hard to look past him given his 2013 production.

    I would just temper expectations a little as it's probably unlikely he'll soar to anywhere near $500K ever again.

PreviouslyOnLost · 01/04/2015 at 22:27

Some tough decisions before round 1;

The Prince or Burn Man (Higgins)?
Danger, Griffin, Wines or McRae?
Dusty, Bennel or Floggard?
Henderson, Ibbotson or Langdon?
Cripps or Sheed?
Shaw or Hibbered?

Been chopping and changing between these blokes… at least i still have another few days =]

Been loving this preseason, better then ever! (although I miss the Nab challenge worksheets).

    PreviouslyOnLost · 01/04/2015 at 22:40

    than* (face palm for rushing)

    Luviboy1 · 02/04/2015 at 09:12

    -Prince
    -Griffo
    -Dusty
    -Hendo
    -Cripps
    -Heater

    vinnymac · 02/04/2015 at 12:42

    -Burn man
    -Wines
    -Dusty
    -Ibbotson
    -Cripps
    -Shaw

Jimi · 01/04/2015 at 22:27

Thoughts or Laird or Bugg?

    jimbo · 01/04/2015 at 22:35

    Bugg might not tag…
    Could be POD greatness

      Jimi · 01/04/2015 at 22:40

      Both averaged in the 80's in NAB. Just need them to get me to the byes. Don't know much about either, can any Adelaide/GWS fans out there give me some insight?

        Mike · 02/04/2015 at 00:19

        GWS fans??

        SCaddict · 02/04/2015 at 00:51

        I know Mad Mick started with Bugg but I think he admitted in hindsight that was a horrendous decision. Still 2015 is a brand new season and the kid is likely to improve.

    t-Mitch · 01/04/2015 at 22:55

    No

      Jimi · 01/04/2015 at 23:02

      Cheers mate. It's a last minute act of desperation.

Seb · 01/04/2015 at 22:30

Is anybody still starting lambert now that he's been named emergency?

    Jimi · 01/04/2015 at 22:34

    Nope dropped him.

    LEKD0G · 01/04/2015 at 22:34

    I'll likely hold onto him

    jockreynolds · 01/04/2015 at 22:35

    I will mate

      jimbo · 01/04/2015 at 22:39

      Love your work Jock. Keep that up!

        jockreynolds · 01/04/2015 at 22:51

        thanks Jimbo!! Love this joint mate

          maka · 01/04/2015 at 22:56

          Cheers also for giving us the PODCAST tonight.
          Re-assuring.

      CJay · 01/04/2015 at 22:45

      Big thanks Jock. get plenty of zzzzz tonight mate you have earned it.

    Rocksta · 01/04/2015 at 22:35

    I am!

    Make sure you've got a bit of money left over in case you need to change your other Forward line bench player if he also doesn't get named

    SCaddict · 01/04/2015 at 22:51

    A no for me if Tarrant is named onfield at CHB tomorrow.

      Rawkus11 · 02/04/2015 at 13:08

      Tarrant's a REAL chance of getting his arse in my fwd line!

    T-mitch · 01/04/2015 at 23:17

    Hold, mate will be a late in for Newman and if not will be playing before too long

    Throttlefinger · 02/04/2015 at 04:59

    Hold. Will definitely play sooner than later.

    Tyler · 02/04/2015 at 08:56

    I still need him for the Mid/Fwd swing so I'm keeping him

Rocksta · 01/04/2015 at 22:39

Just finished my team for the 200th and LAST time, subject to Rookie's being named.

Pumped!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bring it on!

Andrew · 01/04/2015 at 22:39

Jed Adcock? Thoughts… I have him in atm, but thinking maybe I should swap him to a KK or someone similar?

    Rocksta · 01/04/2015 at 22:44

    I think with Pearce Hanley injured, he will come into his own. Adcock is a very good footballer.

    SCaddict · 01/04/2015 at 22:57

    Yeah I guess who out of Adcock or Rich will excel in the Hanley void is the $50K question. Perhaps they both will to some degree.

Rocksta · 01/04/2015 at 22:40

Have 14 genuine Keepers, and still have $50K in the bank. Really happy with my Final Team.

Crabb · 01/04/2015 at 22:44

i've picked higgins, jock – sorry mate

matty D · 01/04/2015 at 22:45

Simpson, Shaw, Newnes, KK, Goodes, Saad (Hamling, Mcintosh)

Fyfe, selwood, Heppell, Danger, Griffen, Cripps, Heeny, CEY, (Vanderberg, Smith, Miller)

Mumford, Bellechambers, (Cox)

Gray, Lids, Martin, Swan, Salem, Clark (hogan, steel or playing rookie)

Think im more excited than a kid on christmas eve
Let the season Begin

The Ranger · 01/04/2015 at 22:48

Hilarious and informative as ever Jock, good luck for the season.

dylan · 01/04/2015 at 22:48

hibberd or brodie smith?? as D2

    Rocksta · 01/04/2015 at 22:53

    Have the exact same problem!

    I've gone with Hibberd, but think that Brodie Smith could get into the Mid 500's this year.

    He was a first round draft pick and is still on the up!

    CJay · 01/04/2015 at 22:53

    I have Hibberd at D2. Good selection for mine but MIick the MDI hasn't spent the $ on him though.

    shake n bake · 02/04/2015 at 09:13

    none gibbson!

    Cozza · 02/04/2015 at 18:00

    Hibberd for me – has a slow end to last year, so think he is underpriced. May be a game or two to hit his straps, but a proved performer in the backs.

keg · 01/04/2015 at 22:48

I’d love some thoughts guys. I’m in a bit of a headspin:

Currently I have Gibson as d1, then newness and lumumba

But I’m wondering if I should get rid of Gibson for a rookie, run with newnes and lumumba as d1 & 2, this would allow me to upgrade a mid rookie to griffen at m6 (or even Parker at m6 if I also Downgrade maric to nic Nat)

I just can’t decide if it’s too much to pay or if I’ll regret not doing it (especially Parker)

Can you guys pleeeeeease tell me what you think??

    Rowan · 01/04/2015 at 23:04

    Go with the option that will leave you with the most players you’ll be happy to keep for SC finals.

    Just depends who you believe will be good enough to keep

      Keg · 02/04/2015 at 00:05

      Good advice, thanks mate.

      This is why I’m leaning towards keeping my current team. As much as I’d love Parker, I would have to give up Gibson and maric to get him. I’m not too sure Nic nat will be a keeper. I’ll just have to look for a way to bring in Parker as time goes by
      Thanks mate, you’ve helped me see a bit of clarity.

      Good luck for the year!

    T-mitch · 01/04/2015 at 23:16

    This time of year we have to go with our gut, if you can’t back yourself you can’t back anyone. Stick with your guns and good luck

      Keg · 02/04/2015 at 00:07

      Cheers mate. I loved my team at 8 this morning, yet somehow started to convince myself I needed to tinker with it. That’s it- I’m done!

      Thanks for your input

    medadsson · 02/04/2015 at 00:11

    That would be a very thin defence indeed. Personally I lean a little to what Higgo is preaching in defence. I am going with four keepers (he is advocating 5) but 2? That sure would be backing yourself in, big plum stuff. Good luck with whatever you choose. I like you first choice best.

@GOODO71 · 01/04/2015 at 22:51

Hi all,
Thanks to all the Jock Reynolds crew and community for their help in moulding and shaping the final make-up of I LIKE IT ROUGH. Appreciate any last minute thoughts.

DEF : Shaw, Newnes, Higgins, KK, Goodes, McIntosh (Oxley, Saad)
MID : GAJ, Fyfe, Beams, JPK, Griffen, Cripps, Anderson, Heeney, (CEY, Vandenberg, Miller)
RUC : Mummy, Nic Nat (Read)
FWD : Gray, Martin, Swan, TBC, Salem, Clark (Lonie, Lambert)

Good luck to all in 2015

maka · 01/04/2015 at 22:54

Thoughts on Malceski to Hibbo? or any defender? (besides Ibbo, Goodes, Ox, Simmo, Newnes)

Or hold on to Eski?
My team looks balanced, with him there though.

    Rocksta · 01/04/2015 at 23:03

    If it feels good to you, go with it!

    I just changed Hibberd back to Brodie Smith because it feels better to me!

    Need to back yourself in this game!

      Cozza · 02/04/2015 at 18:02

      Like Malceski > Hibbo for the reasons Jock said in the podcast – too much uncertainty around Malceski's role in a team of up and coming guns.

Jacob · 01/04/2015 at 22:54

Think i've finally decided on my team. Thoughts??

Def: Shaw, Newnes, Higgins, Kolodjashnij, McIntosh, Saad (Oxley, Hamling)

Mid: Ablett, Fyfe, Parker, Dangerfield, Griffen, Swan, Cripps, CEY (Anderson, Heeney, Miller)

Ruc: Maric, Naitanui (Cox)

Fwd: Gray, Bartell, Martin, Salem, Clarke, Hogan (Tarrant, Lonie)

    Redgumwon · 02/04/2015 at 13:36

    You might want one more premium in defence. But each to their own

    Cozza · 02/04/2015 at 18:04

    Love it – great team. Only though is whether you swap swan to forwards and replace Lonie with a mid rookie like Vandenberg is he is named – thinking Vandenberg is likely to generate more cash than Lonie.

Tom · 01/04/2015 at 22:58

Wallis said today in a q&a that he will no longer tag.

Locked!

    T-mitch · 01/04/2015 at 23:14

    Had him in since Libba went down, let’s hope it pays off for us

Rowan · 01/04/2015 at 22:58

Just to double-double check.

We can make unlimited trades right through the weekend?? (Obviously with players locked in at first bounce in their game)

    Rocksta · 01/04/2015 at 23:00

    Correct

t-Mitch · 01/04/2015 at 23:01

Going on with a mid pricer on each line community
Back- newnes
Mid- Wallis
Ruck- tbc
Fwd- swan

Two will be kept and two as stepping stones

Happy with my line up this year, I’ll be going for the top prize along with everyone here, been a long preseason but let’s get into it!!

Best of luck guys!!!

T_Mitch

    Keg · 02/04/2015 at 00:16

    Good luck mate.

    It sure has been a long pre-season. I reckon I’ve put more hours into this year than ever before, which has really only led to me being more confused than ever before!

    I reckon there are 30 guys i would like.

    Cheers

Damon · 01/04/2015 at 23:05

G’Day community! Thoughts on my team would be greatly appreciated!
D: Shaw, Taylor, Newnes, Kolodjashnij, Goodes, McIntosh (Hamling, Saad)
M: Fyfe, Selwood, Parker, Dangerfield, Griffen, Rich, Cripps, Ellis-Yolmen (Heeney, Freeman, Miller)
R: Maric, Bellchambers (Cox)
F: Gray, Martin, Dahlhaus, Swan, Salem, Clark (Hogan, Lambert)
Cheers, Damon.

    Ageneral3 · 02/04/2015 at 11:16

    I agree, no Ablettsen.

DaNeediest · 01/04/2015 at 23:10

What's the deal with t.hunt? Don't know much about him, is he named in the guts for a tagging role or something? Can we run with him and Goodes in defence or is that too risky?

    T-mitch · 01/04/2015 at 23:13

    Stay right away, whatever it is he does is not SuperCoach relevant

Josh · 01/04/2015 at 23:18

thoughts on parker vs dangerfield?

    scrofl · 02/04/2015 at 00:30

    Parker will be more consistent and score better. Also won't cop a tag, unlike Danger.

    bobby · 02/04/2015 at 09:22

    Parker

Dean · 01/04/2015 at 23:19

I had HIBBERD in defence as a lock and forget if the ASADA went in there way which it did, but LEKDOG is suggesting to NOT go in with any Essendon players due to not having a pre-season.

Now im not sure what to do. Your advice would be greatly appreciated.

SCOTLAND THE BRAVE · 01/04/2015 at 23:21

Lambert not in tigers side, are we picking someone else or sticking fat?

    T-mitch · 01/04/2015 at 23:25

    Sticking with him for a couple of reasons
    1. I think he will be a late inclusion for Newman
    2. If that’s not the case we have seen enough from him to say he will play before too long and to take him out now and trade him in later, you will be trading out a rookie who’s price has not peaked which is not good, we all want to keep our rookies until there price has reached as high as it can

      SCOTLAND THE BRAVE · 01/04/2015 at 23:27

      Agree also he is my switch between fwd and mid

      Northerner · 02/04/2015 at 06:47

      But your mid pricer in your defense could be fat when he's on the bubble! I plan to use that strategy. Better to have price appreciating. If he's not named, he's only coming into my side when on the bubble

    SCaddict · 01/04/2015 at 23:27

    Community appears fairly divided on this one.

    A lot will depend on what happens with team sheets tomorrow I'd say, as coaches consider their options.

    Keg · 02/04/2015 at 00:24

    Keeping him

    Reckon he’ll play at least 10 games this year, and I don’t want to burn a trade to bring him in. He still may well play tomorrow night too I reckon

    shake n bake · 02/04/2015 at 09:22

    silly to keep him, just say tigers win well & they keep pretty much the same team the week after bar injuries. That would then 2 weeks without him while if you went with someone else after rd 2 they would be already on the bubble!

BeerIsYum · 01/04/2015 at 23:25

Option of upgrading Swallow to Ablett if he's going off his tits

    Motsy · 01/04/2015 at 23:42

    250k is too much in the chest mate, I would say get Ablett now (if you're an ablett type) or upgrade elsewhere.

PHIL · 01/04/2015 at 23:33

Do we find a new rookie to replace lambert???
Or back the kid in??

    medadsson · 02/04/2015 at 00:05

    I am leaving him out of initial 30 as I believe he will make a good trade down target.

    OldOcker · 02/04/2015 at 00:27

    Jaden McGrath (fwd) is going to play for the Lions this week I have just heard.

    Sarah · 02/04/2015 at 10:04

    Risky backline but I looooove your midfield. Wishing I could fit Parker in myself but he doesn't fit into my structure at this stage. Good luck, with that backline, you'll need it!!!

Mitch · 01/04/2015 at 23:52

Hey guys just need advice on which way I should go with having Simpson, Burgoyne and luenberger or m Johnson yarran and minson cheers πŸ™‚

    medadsson · 02/04/2015 at 00:02

    Minson is far more durable and a lone ruckman. I like Johnson who's role is to sweep across backline, takes many intercept marks. Never been a fan of Yarran, Supercoach wise, promises plenty but has never really delivered. The more I think about it though, if you have ruck cover Simpson, Burgoyne and Luey probably way to go. That'd be my choice.

    scrofl · 02/04/2015 at 00:20

    I'd steer clear of Burgs and Lueuy personally, so go the second option.

luke · 02/04/2015 at 00:02

thoughts on clancee pearce

    SCaddict · 02/04/2015 at 00:16

    Didn't show enough in the NAB to get our supercoach juices flowing. Could have a breakout season but is a speculative pick at best. Group thought is that Goodes is a better option if named and save $30K in the process.

      medadsson · 02/04/2015 at 00:29

      Ross mentioned the T word on Monday night. Said he would be a good match up on Boak. Like him but if he tags, too risky.

      luke · 02/04/2015 at 00:51

      what about ibbo

        SCaddict · 02/04/2015 at 01:03

        I like Ibbo much more and in fact he's in my team as it presently stands alongside Goodes.

        At least he's shown he can average well over 90 at AFL level but he's had a helluva time staying on the park so big questions over his durability and role in 2015.

        Of course he's $100K more than Goodesy which is a significant consideration too for those deciding between the two. On the flip side I believe firmly that Ibbo is in Freo's best 22 when fit but Goodesy I'm not quite as convinced on his JS although reckon it'll be pretty decent nonetheless if he gets named tomorrow.

medadsson · 02/04/2015 at 00:03

Greetings, kicked off another league if anyone interested. 518031. Thought this the best place to get dedicated coaches πŸ™‚

Is Wallis a lock now?

    T-mitch · 02/04/2015 at 00:18

    Wouldn’t say a lock, needs to show a lot of improvement but that being said I’ll be rolling the dice

scrofl · 02/04/2015 at 00:24

Would love some thoughts/opinions community!

DEF: Shaw, Newnes, Lumumba
Goodes, Brown, McIntosh (Hamling, Saad)

    T-mitch · 02/04/2015 at 00:28

    Hell no

      mike · 02/04/2015 at 01:04

      I’ve become what I hate. The bloke who posts stuff before listening to the podcast. I’ll put it down to the stress of the night.

        Throttlefinger · 02/04/2015 at 05:01

        It happens. Especially since FOOTY SEASON STARTS TOMORROW!!!!!

    SCaddict · 02/04/2015 at 00:32

    Not if there are perceived better options as he really showed bugger all in the preseason although it appears Mick really rates the kid starting him on the HFF or so it would appear.

    But if enough of Miller, Anderson, Heeney, Vandenberg, Krakoeur, Cockatoo etc don't get named tomorrow we may be forced to look at him.

      Kev · 02/04/2015 at 08:27

      Won't teams for Saturday games be named on Friday night?

        david · 02/04/2015 at 09:31

        no thur

        SCaddict · 02/04/2015 at 13:40

        I believe this is the team announcement schedule for Rd1.

        Thursday – the Wednesday night beforehand
        Saturday – as per usual on the Thursday night
        Sunday – squads of 25 are named on the Thursday night beforehand, with the squads trimmed to 22 on Friday evening
        Monday – squads of 25 are named on the Thursday night beforehand, with the squads trimmed to 22 on Saturday evening

Tim GG · 02/04/2015 at 00:26

With the breaking news hitting:

TBC (F4) + Anderson (MBench) vs Wallis (M7) + Rookie (FBench)? – might be a bit hard to answer with no team showing, can add my lines if that helps.

Swan vs The Bont vs TBC at F4? (rucks are goldy + flute)

    mike · 02/04/2015 at 00:43

    Higgo ! Showing some form with the tonsils sir.

marcus · 02/04/2015 at 00:33

please help me, any feedback

shaw newnes higgins hunt mclntosh saad (hamling goddard)

bartel roughead swan bellchambers hogan lamb (daniel, lambert)

    Kev · 02/04/2015 at 08:25

    Not a fan of Hunt scoring potential. Will be used as a run with player as the Tigers don't have that type of bloke (calling Grigg a tagger is an insult to all the great taggers in the game). Love the Lycett pick, if you can find 20k to turn Roughy into Dusty you're golden I reckon

luke · 02/04/2015 at 00:55

clancee pearce, brett goodes or gerrick ibbotson

    Kev · 02/04/2015 at 08:21

    Goodes, Ibbo, daylight, Pearce

Tommyurds · 02/04/2015 at 00:55

Hey guys just would like some opinions on a choice between beams/Neale or Lewis/A. Swallow. One a premo and the other likely a trade for premo later on in the piece…. Cheers guys

    mike · 02/04/2015 at 01:06

    Toss a coin with those choices. Each one a solid premo and a guy who should up his average.
    Beams Neale for me.

kyle · 02/04/2015 at 01:10

is jed anderson going to get the green vest if plays?

    SCaddict · 02/04/2015 at 01:14

    Decent chance although no way of knowing for sure until Easter Monday which is far from ideal obviously.

    Still needs to get named in the 22 in the first place before we even worry about potential vests as the Hawks have great depth as we know.

      Kev · 02/04/2015 at 08:21

      I see him as burst player really. Fourth quarter fresh legs so could find himself in the snot vest more often than not.

    Tofor · 02/04/2015 at 15:29

    I'd say so. Highly likely

Phil · 02/04/2015 at 01:42

I'm pretty set on my team which is unusual for this time of year. Collingwood could throw a spanner in the works with selection though.

If Oxley isn't named I'll have to consider changing my structure to add a premo defender for a forward. If Karnezis is named i will even more strongly consider it. If Freeman is named I'll take him but at least that won't change my structure. Then there's N.Brown too

Dougie · 02/04/2015 at 01:55

Good morning! Dedicated Supercoacher with a league which needs to be filled 773106! Bring on another exciting year! All the best with your side in ’15!

marcus · 02/04/2015 at 01:57

am i crazy for considering sandilands? lots of hit outs to advantage, POD?

    SCaddict · 02/04/2015 at 03:09

    Hard to justify his selection given his age and injury history when compared to say Goldylock for the same money.

    He served us well last season when initially priced in the bargain bin but I think we've all moved on in 2015.

Levi · 02/04/2015 at 03:24

McIntosh locked in defence anyone?

    Kev · 02/04/2015 at 08:11

    I reckon if you looked at every community team reveal for the last few weeks he's been in there. Named on the wing last night. So yeah, popular choice

Trevor · 02/04/2015 at 06:52

join my league filling fast 782643

Rick Grimes · 02/04/2015 at 07:04

I've been running Bennell as F3 for a while now. Am I safer to go with Martin. He seems to be a lock in a lot of teams. Similar average last year, which one is going to take it to a higher level?

    Kev · 02/04/2015 at 08:13

    Back your gut, Rick. Stay strong and don't worry what everyone else is doing.

    zeesus · 02/04/2015 at 09:48

    I have gone Bennell. Get a bit of POD in ya!

Bill · 02/04/2015 at 07:05

Any tips on my team would be appreciated. Would like to move TBC to the fwd line and put NicNat at R2. Would also like to bring in Lumumba if poss for maybe Ibbotson.

My team:
DEF: Shaw, Hibberd, Newnes, Ibbotson, Goodes, mcIntosh (Saad, Goddard)

MID: Ablett, Fyfe, Gray, Griffin, Wells, Van Berlo, Cripps, Anderson (Heeney, CEY, Krakour)

RUCK: Goldstein, TBC (King)

FWD: Bartell, Martin, Bennell, Swan, Salem, Clarke (Karnezis, Hogan)

Obviously King will go for a dpp ruck if TBC goes forward. Also Karnezis, Krakour, Goddard may switch to other rookies.

Thanks guys.

    Bill · 02/04/2015 at 07:06

    Sorry $151,600 left in the bank.

    jimbo · 02/04/2015 at 08:15

    Wells or Griff to an Uber Premium.
    Lacking in the Midfield.
    Looks a solid team.

    Kev · 02/04/2015 at 08:17

    Take your own advice Bill and switch TBC forward and change those rooks. While you're at it switch Gray forward and get a super premo in M3. Use that 150k to further bolster your mid line

    Tomgustygem · 02/04/2015 at 10:40

    Van berlo hasn’t shown his scoring capability in the NAB games. Either look at newton or sheed that will score more points or down grade hime to a rook, run with 2 rooks on the field and theres another 100k to bolster your wells types.

    Bill · 02/04/2015 at 14:14

    OK. Have made some changes, and think I'm pretty set.

    DEF: Shaw, Hibberd, Lumumba, Ibbotson, Goodes, McIntosh (Saad, Hamling)

    MID: Ablett, Fyfe, Gray, Griffin, Heppell, Sheed, Cripps, Anderson (Heeney, CEY, Krakour)

    RUCK: Goldstein, Naitanui (O'Brien)

    FWD: Bartell, Martin, Swan, TBC, Salem, Clarke (Lamb (WCE), Hogan)

    Bank: $9,500

    Kev · 02/04/2015 at 08:18

    Looks alright, Sean. Obviously sacrificed your forward line a bit in favour of stronger mids, but if that's your strategy then good luck for the year mate

    jimbo · 02/04/2015 at 08:19

    Midfield needs a Gaz/Rocky for walkover captain every week.
    RUC: Natanui down to Burger. Your rucks looks the strongest position.
    FWD line lacking depth. TBC in FWD line is a risk (I know of the DPP strategy)
    DEF: H.Taylor will give you some spud scores. It depends on what role he will play, but against Hawks you would think he'll play a lockdown role.

      Ageneral3 · 02/04/2015 at 11:18

      Agreed, walked over to stream, no ablett, but need Rocky or Priddis bro.

Adam · 02/04/2015 at 08:36

Long term supercoach player who has a few points of difference this year … Have taken gaz for as long as I can remember but happy to punt his early season price given disrupted pre season … With the changes in ruck scoring I have adjusted accordingly … Big breakout contenders Duncan and neale who I think can avg 120 this year with a 20point jump …

how much cash should u have in the bank

    CJay · 02/04/2015 at 09:24

    As little as possible as $'s in the war chest round 1 wont help with cash generation.

    Kev · 02/04/2015 at 09:39

    No magic number there, Corey. Personally I'm a fan of picking the best team that I can and I worry about the "warchest" a bit later on

        i think he will play he played all nab cup i think ill get him

SCOTLAND THE BRAVE · 02/04/2015 at 09:05

Hate this waiting! Looked at my team which I thought was settled really want Martin in fwd line but couldn’t afford him with current structure but now realised can go pendles to fyfe and bennell to Martin with very little left in the kit. Thoughts? Now I’m bloody torn!

    eatemalive · 02/04/2015 at 09:15

    If you are thinking of doing it, do it ! But I''m not making any further changes until the teams are released, good luck

is anyone going to pick mitch wallis?
and is bontempelli a good pick?

    Rick Grimes · 02/04/2015 at 09:32

    Plenty liking Wallis, especially since he has stated he won't be tagging. Should benefit the most by Libba's absence. I don't really see Bont going top 6 forward this year, but he's far from a bad pick. Wallis I see as being a good calculated punt.

      Rick Grimes · 02/04/2015 at 09:33

      FYI, I don't have either but have slotted them in a few times (among pretty much every other player on the face of the planet).

        Matthew · 02/04/2015 at 09:36

        thanks should i replace bonts for bellchambers or hogan?

          Rick Grimes · 02/04/2015 at 12:51

          Is Bont your F4? If he is there would certainly be a case for taking a punt on TBC and using the extra cash elsewhere. If he's your F3, I wouldn't go that light. But that's just me, I'm willing to take a couple of punts early on but go by the motto, "You can't win SC in the first round, but you can lose it".

Jake · 02/04/2015 at 09:42

Neale and R. Murphy or

Griffen and Higgins

    zeesus · 02/04/2015 at 09:47

    Everyone is going to say Griffin and Higgins. I think Neale could have a breakout year and be a great POD. I rate murph as well. Be brave!

Jim · 02/04/2015 at 09:46

scott pendulbury, joel selwood, dayne beams priddis, steele side who would be the best option?

    zeesus · 02/04/2015 at 09:54

    pendles! twice under 100 last year. twice under 110.

      Petters · 02/04/2015 at 11:58

      Beams, Selwood

      Pendles Steele, Priddis

      Tough year for collingwood and Pendles will see plenty of attention. I'm a big fan of his but for his price better options who will score similar.

      Beams and Selwood is much of a muchness both will guarantee 120+ a week if i was selecting them I'd go Selwood but that because i'm a cats man

      Steele is a big chance to have a good year, won't get same attention as Pendles and with Beams gone he's the next best.

      Priddis is solid but I don't expect anything more than mid 100's from him this year

zeesus · 02/04/2015 at 09:46

Mitch Hallahan. I have him but Jock just gave me the real heebie-jeebies talking about playing mid-pricers. Will he score better or worse with GAJ around? I really rate him after watching him at Hawks and in the NAB. Opinions?

    Mike · 02/04/2015 at 10:34

    The drums have really gone quiet on him, maybe he’s a great shark move.
    Is it down to him or Touk Miller for a spot?
    I decided on Cripps given he’s 100,000 cheaper and should average about the same.

      zeesus · 02/04/2015 at 10:36

      Yeah I have Cripps. Wondering if i should play them both. I find it hard to believe that Touk would get a spot over Hallahan.

        Petters · 02/04/2015 at 11:36

        Better options for that price Rich, Wells, Newton all similar or cheaper and will get same output. Hallahan will play but given GC mid is stacked with guns GAJ, Prestia, Jagear, Swallow i don't see him getting the same output versus the other options

          zeesus · 02/04/2015 at 11:59

          But Lions mid is stacked with guns too now.. Beams, Rocky, Hanley, Martin, Zorko… How come everyone is betting Rich will have a cracker but not Hallahan. I think being surrounded by guns helps these guys out.

            Thedon4 · 02/04/2015 at 12:05

            Zeesus, rich is playing as an attacking back flanker and is doing the lockouts wich could mean an extra 10-20 points a game

              zeesus · 02/04/2015 at 15:27

              Cheers

    Kashie99 · 02/04/2015 at 10:41

    Hi Chi Chi,

    Firstly, you probably need to get Ablett in somehow. I would drop Walker from fwd and get another rookie in there, e.g Move Lambert into fwd and pick up Ablett
    Secondly, drop Rohan from backline, cos he is a big burnman, and pick up McIntosh from richmond. Has been named on wing for tonights game
    Thirdly, your rookies are really good. can't fault them at all. Only thing i would do is put Salem on ground for Hogan, cos i think Salem will score higher then Hogan.

      Chi Chi · 02/04/2015 at 11:17

      Thanks for your help. I've taken on your tips

    TTJ · 02/04/2015 at 11:15

    You need some Super Premiums in the Midfield

    IMO something like this might make your team look a bit stronger.

    Out Rohan in McIntosh
    Out Walker, Swan Forward, Fyfe Mid
    Out Membrey in Lamb
    Out Goddard in N Brown
    Out Ryder in Bellchambers
    Out Vandenberg in Cripps
    Out Rich in Ablett

Matt · 02/04/2015 at 10:06

Thoughts would be really appreciated!

Over 100k left.

Just a few Q's.

Maric or Minson?

Do I need Pendlebury?

Oxley or Brown?

Cheers and good luck!

    Petters · 02/04/2015 at 12:02

    Minson > Maric (Ivan is too prone to injury for me and i expect Minson to be back to AA best this year)

    Pendles is not for me at this stage, better options at similar or lower price and i reckon he'll drop by bye rounds and can get him cheaper there

    Brown > Oxley (simply put Brown has more job security particularly with Keeffe now out Oxley has to contend with Langdon, Seedsman & Marley)

Corza · 02/04/2015 at 10:09

Join 322763 fill it up quick

Dean · 02/04/2015 at 10:12

Lamb or Lonie

    Jacob · 02/04/2015 at 10:21

    Reckon Lonie. Hes JS might be a bit better (I expect him to play at least 15 games). Plus his Scoring output is more reliable being a smaller fowards who might get the odd look in the middle.

      Mike · 02/04/2015 at 10:31

      A small forward in a team that won’t score much?
      Also isn’t he a fly weight?
      Just what I’ve read. I’m tossing up between the two myself.

corey · 02/04/2015 at 10:14

is it risky lining up with goodes, mcintosh and saad in the backline?

    Kashie99 · 02/04/2015 at 10:43

    i don't think so and hope not cos i'm doing same thing!

    Rick Grimes · 02/04/2015 at 13:01

    It's the way I'm going.

Max · 02/04/2015 at 10:14

Thoughts on my team?

Simpson, Shaw, Newnes, KK, Goodes, Saad, Hamling, McIntosh
Ablett, Fyfe, Selwood, Beams, Parker, Cripps, Heeney, Vandenberg, Ellis-Yolmen, Miller, Steele
Maric, Goldstein, Read
Gray, Martin, Swan, Salem, Clark, Hogan, Lamb, Lambert

Was trying to squeeze TBC up forward but don't know how to. Thoughts?

    Jacob · 02/04/2015 at 10:19

    A possibility is to downgrade Selwood to Swallow or Griffen to get the $$ for TBC.

      Phil · 02/04/2015 at 11:39

      Ablett to Griffen. Lambert to TBC.

        Max · 02/04/2015 at 12:16

        Why would I get rid of Gaz?

          Rick Grimes · 02/04/2015 at 13:06

          I wouldn't. Feel really good about Gaz. He monsters Melbourne. So worst case scenario they rest him 4th quarter, well he's probably racked up 120 by then anyways. And who is to say they'll be in a position to do that. I'm sticking with GAJ come hell or high water.

Trab Pukcip · 02/04/2015 at 10:18

Hi Guys

Love some feedback on this most important day (apart from the ablett no ablett debate ) πŸ™‚ !

Mid: Fyfe, Selwood, Sloane, Kennedy, Wines, Griffin, Cripps, Ellis Yolmen, (heenie, Anderson, Miller)

Cheers Trab

frog · 02/04/2015 at 10:35

Higgins , James Kelly (Cats) or Newnes?
Hugh Goddard or Kamdyn McIntosh?
Jed Anderson or P Cripps?
Bartel or BJ Goddard?

Feedback appreciated

    Petters · 02/04/2015 at 11:32

    Newnes over Kelly just (caveat by saying Kelly will spend more time in the middle this year meaning he has a chance to score, Newnes is in just about everyone's side so you would be limiting your losses there)

    McIntosh > Goddard

    Cripps > Anderson

    Bartel > Goddard

      Phil · 02/04/2015 at 11:36

      Exactly what Petters said

    Rick Grimes · 02/04/2015 at 13:11

    I'm not going Newnes as a POD. I think people are looking for the David Swallow of this year and I just don't see Newnes being that. He's certainly not a bad pick, but I will be hoping he has a pooser – sorry guys.

corey · 02/04/2015 at 10:40

Jack Steven, Sam mitchell, Chris judd, lachie neale opinions plz

    Petters · 02/04/2015 at 11:30

    SM, Judd, Neale, Steven in that order

    Steven will see the tag, Neale is a breakout contender but still behind Fyfe, Barlow, Mundy in mid pecking order, Judd is on his last legs but always capable and Sam Mitchell is just something else and will always get the pill

lolattack · 02/04/2015 at 10:43

newton or sheed?
ibbotson or kolodjashnij?
gibson or simpson?

    Luviboy1 · 02/04/2015 at 11:09

    -Sheed
    -Thumper
    -Simmo

Matt · 02/04/2015 at 10:44

Todd goldstein, will minson ivan maric or nic nat?

    northernsoul74 · 02/04/2015 at 11:28

    Dollar for dollar hard to look passed Goldy.

    Luviboy1 · 02/04/2015 at 11:35

    If you're picking one out of them Goldy.

    Petters · 02/04/2015 at 11:37

    Goldy, Nic Nat, Minson, Maric in that order

    Hazza_08 · 02/04/2015 at 12:30

    Goldy>Maric>minson>Nic Nat. Depends on how much u have/willing to spend

    Rick Grimes · 02/04/2015 at 13:13

    Goldy & Nicnat. Gives you one mr reliable and one with a massive ceiling. But to be fair, you wouldn't lose much going with any of them. They all have merit, so trust your gut.

    Redgumwon · 02/04/2015 at 16:48

    I like Goldy & Maric but just couldn't make it work dollar wise for me. So I went Maric Nic Nat. Get Goldy & Maric as they will play the sol ruckman in their sides

BackYardPunter · 02/04/2015 at 10:55

Great podcast great site love it . After a couple of seasons off due major SC frustration and countless preliminary final fade outs I’m back. With great aid from JR. I’ve compiled a team hoping to finally brake the PF blues and become an elite SCer Community suggestions would be awesome

Backs: Hodge, Enright, Johnson, McDonald, Geary, McIntosh. Brown, Dalgleish

Mids: Parker, Dangerfied, Shuey, Duncan, Wells, Rich, Cripps, Ellis-Yomen. Miller, Anderson, Kavanagh

Rucks: Goldstein Maric O’Brein

Fwds: Grey Franklin Martin Bellchambers Clark Tarrant hogan Loine

Going with experience down back until the good Defs stand out. And looking trade in elite Mids once there price drop slightly. Back up ruck in the Fwd set up should be enough cover fingers crossed with Tarrant they love him down there good cash cow same with wells and rich be looking to upgrade FWDs through the year

    kevwal · 02/04/2015 at 13:08

    BYP, no GAZ/Fyfe/Pendels/Jelwood/Rockliff, who will all finish in to 8 midifelders, too many trades and too much money to get them all in, plus, you will be very light on for points generation for several rounds.

Petters · 02/04/2015 at 10:57

Community we're almost there…9 hours to go until SC kicks off for 2015.

Pretty settled on my team but wouldn't mind any feedback or suggestions you've got/

Def- B Smith, H Shaw, Newnes, Ibbotson, Brown, Saad (Hamling, McIntosh)

Mid- Ablett, Fyfe, Parker, Danger, Griff, Cripps, Heeney, Ellis Yolmen (Vandenberg, Touk Miller, Krakouer)

Ruck- Minson, Nic Nat (Read)

Fwd- Grey, Bartel, Goddard, Swan, Clark, Salem (Hogan, Lambert)

Backline is where my worries are, might be too thin

Any thoughts or suggestions welcome.

Good luck this season everyone

    Rick Grimes · 02/04/2015 at 13:21

    I don't see a problem wit the backline. Plenty are going with a 3-3 structure (with Newnes as D3), you've gone 3-1-2, so all good. McIntosh has been named on field, so it's whether you take a bird in the hand or two in the bush by starting him.

    The only concern for me is the number of rookies in the guts and the risk of a green vest. Option is to go to F3 up top and take a punt on a Wallis, Wells or Rich to pad out the mids. But I say go with what feels right.

    Redgumwon · 02/04/2015 at 16:45

    Just move McIntosh onto the ground, unless he is sub and move Brown to the bench. It's a good side

      Petters · 02/04/2015 at 17:04

      Compared to this team, which is better?

      Def- Smith, Shaw, Newnes, Ibbo, Goodes, Brown (McIntosh, Saad)

      Mid- GAJ, Fyfe, Parker, Danger, Griff, Rich, Cripps, Ellis Yolmen (Heeney, Vandenberg, T Miller)

      Ruc- Minson, Nic Nat

      Fwd- Grey, Bartel, Swan, Clark, Salem, Hogan (Lamb, Lambert)

      Tossing up the two teams as they both have different pros and cons

Keano · 02/04/2015 at 11:00

My FINAL TEAM! please share your thoughts.
Got 44k left.

Backline: Shaw, Taylor, Newnes, KK, Mcintosh, Saad (Oxley, Hamling)

jimmydowland · 02/04/2015 at 11:22

thoughts on cockatoo??? will play… but is he too expensive?? whats a better option

    Petters · 02/04/2015 at 11:29

    Will play but not sure of his output versus price, chance to go big but also chance to go average.

    Heeney, Miller, Lang, Ellis-Yolmen, Cripps all better options of lower, similar or higher price

    northernsoul74 · 02/04/2015 at 11:30

    Wait and see who is named tonight. We may be forced to start him if not much else. He'll get games but the view was that he's a vest candidate. Hawthorn first up is a big ask for a rookie.

Liam · 02/04/2015 at 11:23

Would it be criminal to play swan at M6 instead of F3? I could then play bennell at F3 with salem, clark and hogan taking up F4-6. If swan doesnt live up to expectations then i could free up some cash and make a corrective trade to either Rich, Wallis or perhaps Wells

    Petters · 02/04/2015 at 12:12

    I'd be more concerned with Bennell, he always threatens to go big but ends up fizzing out. Having said that back yourself in and go with what you feel is best. The way i see it I'd rather have a team i like with players i enjoy watching than a team that everyone else has.

Question · 02/04/2015 at 11:23

Can someone clear something up for me?

Are you able to change your team after tonight game (of course except for the rich and carlton players) with no penalties?

    Tulendeena · 02/04/2015 at 11:28

    Yes, it does not count towards your 30 trades until the conclusion of round 1

    Luviboy1 · 02/04/2015 at 11:29

    Correct.

    Petters · 02/04/2015 at 11:38

    Yes, rolling lockout means that as each games starts those players you have selected from that team are locked into your team

Chi Chi · 02/04/2015 at 11:23

Beams or Rockliff?

    Tulendeena · 02/04/2015 at 11:28

    Beams

    Petters · 02/04/2015 at 11:37

    Beams just beacuse he is an absolute jet and with no fwd targets i reckon rocky is going to be spending a bit of time there this year

    Phil · 02/04/2015 at 11:53

    Rocky, unless if u really need the cash

Bobby · 02/04/2015 at 11:26

      Thedon4 · 02/04/2015 at 11:59

      So did I but found out yesterday he has recovered and is fit for round 1

        Bobby · 02/04/2015 at 12:18

      Great minds think alike ay demon ahah

Thedon4 · 02/04/2015 at 11:58

Hey guys, was just wondering on your thoughts on my team.

Def-newnes, lumumba, Higgins, rampe, hamling, saad (dalgleish, mcintosh

Mid-ablett, pendlebury, fyfe, selwood, griffin, andrew swallow, cripps, CEY (Anderson, heeney, miller)

Ruck-goldstein, bellchambers (cox)

Forward- gray, bartel, Martin, Salem, Clark, hogan (lonie, lambert)

Thinking of having Krakour instead of Anderson and priddis instead of fyfe to free up the money to get Hibberd or shaw in for rampe.

    Petters · 02/04/2015 at 12:15

    Too light in the backline for mine…

    I'd downgrade Swallow for Rich and then upgrade Rampe and Higgins to a Shaw and Hibberd

    Your mid is strong but remember some of those guys are going to drop in price and can be picked up later for cheaper.

    Redgumwon · 02/04/2015 at 16:18

    No upgrade for Lonie at St Kilda

Corey · 02/04/2015 at 12:10

Anyone have any idea on when the full team line-ups come out? Want to lock down my rookies already

    eatemalive · 02/04/2015 at 15:18

    5

Last minute jitters · 02/04/2015 at 12:11

Have selwood and Newton with Griffen at m5, just not sold on Newton replicating nab scores against full strength midfields.. Considering, probably stupidly, down grading selwood to Sean and upgrading Newton to lumumba with the intensional of moving them to their respective dual position when upgrading forward and Defense rookies for mids… Is this madness and a waste of time?

    derek · 02/04/2015 at 12:34

    at his price, he is very tempting, I can see him going 100+

Ryan · 02/04/2015 at 12:14

Thoughts would be GREATLY appreciated

DEF: Hibberd, Taylor, Lumumba, McDonald, Henderson, McIntosh (Hamling, Saad)
MID: Ablett, Boak, Dangerfield, Wines, Griffin, Rich, Cripps, Ellis-Yolmen (Anderson, Heeney, Miller)
RUCK: Goldstein, NicNat (Read)
FWD: Gray, Martin, Adams, Bellchambers, Salem, Clark (Hogan, Lambert)

    Frank · 02/04/2015 at 15:05

    Lot of players are I think are risky…. McDonald, Henderson, Bellchambers.

Yoeyy · 02/04/2015 at 12:23

Yep he is

Yoeyy · 02/04/2015 at 12:24

Yep he is !

    SCOTLAND THE BRAVE · 02/04/2015 at 12:35

    If u have Cox as your loophole change him to read as Cox plays early so will generally play before your C whereas read plays later in the round so can put the c on him if your VC goes off. Ie Read plays Easter Monday so you can put your vc pretty much on anyone and if they go bang whack your c on read. Ie Rd 2 Cox plays be able to whereas read after.

      SCOTLAND THE BRAVE · 02/04/2015 at 12:36

      Stupid auto correct should read before Ablett

jason · 02/04/2015 at 12:24

hey guys cant decide

Neale maric lonie vs cripps belly dusty

Redd · 02/04/2015 at 12:27

Fyfe Selwood Beams Priddis Lewis

Or

GAJ Rockliff Sloane Sidebum Swallow

    Petters · 02/04/2015 at 15:41

    I'd go a hybrid if you can afford- GAJ Fyfe, Sloane, Lewis

bob n · 02/04/2015 at 12:27

ibbotson/parker or higgins/stevens

    vinnymac · 02/04/2015 at 12:52

Thomas · 02/04/2015 at 12:29

Harry Taylor or Shaun Higgins, thoughts???

    vinnymac · 02/04/2015 at 12:50

    I’m going with Taylor. Both can ton it up but Taylor is less likely to break down.

Hazza_08 · 02/04/2015 at 12:29

I'm with ya Jock. The pants won't be able to take another 6 sub 60 scores for a 410k defender like last year.

Yoeyy · 02/04/2015 at 12:31

Yep

Elliot · 02/04/2015 at 12:43

Hey guys i have 4 melbourne players in my starting 22
Lumumba, newton, salem, hogan what should i do ?

lolattack · 02/04/2015 at 12:46

pendlebury or selwood? or anyone else around the same price?

    Elliot · 02/04/2015 at 12:47

    Selwood for sure

    SCaddict · 02/04/2015 at 15:21

    Dependlebury for me.

    Jelwood will often have one down month where you can pick him up in the bargain bin. Last year it was late April when he had 3 sub 100 scores in a row.

Dingo · 02/04/2015 at 12:48

Think I am set but appreciate some feedback. Feel my back line is weak and worried about not having tbc or Lycett in Fwd line to cover ruck area but only have $700 left

Simpson, Shaw, Newnes, Brown, McIntosh, Saad (Oxley, Hamling)

Ablett, Pendlbury, Fyfe, Beams, Lewis, Rich, Newton, Cripps (CEY, Freeman, Lambert)

Goldstein, Maric (Read)

Gray, Bartel, Swan, Salem, Clark, Hogan (Daniel, Lamb)

    Tofor · 02/04/2015 at 15:00

    Get Ablett later (his price will drop). Go for a Kennedy, or Lewis or something.. use cash to upgrade a rookie defender to Goodes IMO.
    Good luck Dingo!

Luke · 02/04/2015 at 12:53

Here we go, boys and girls

Open for your critique, this season have gone extremely different to any other year, but a little unsure there is any value for the midfield and think I will be able to buy players I want cheaper then their starting price

B: Shaw Newnes Lumumba Geary Goodes McIntosh saad/hamling

M: Fyfe Dangerfield Griffen Gray D.Martin Swan CEY cripps Heeney/Anderson/smith

R: Mumford Nic Nat

F: Deleido Franklin Bontempelli Cameron Salem Clark Steele/Hogan

plan is to trade into the midfield and sub into the forward as I think there is more value pick in the fwd this year

Good luck to all in season 2015

    Rick · 02/04/2015 at 14:46

    Gray, Martin and Swan in the same midfield. No No No. Those guys are meant for your foward line. Never put a dual position player in the midfield!!!! Midfielders are meant for the midfield to bump up huge scores and dual positions are a gift and you must not waste the gift on a already blossoming midfield. Goodluck.

Tyler · 02/04/2015 at 12:54

‘A player from the suns (who wishes not to bd named) says that Gary Ablett is ‘likely’ to end in the vest as Gold Coast manage his comeback load.’

Just another reason not to pick him just yet.

    Dig Dug · 02/04/2015 at 13:03

    source?

      Tyler · 02/04/2015 at 13:28

      I saw it on SuperCoach Paige on facebook. Not the most reliable source and probably is only trying to stir people up so I think everyone should make up their own minds

    BundyBear · 02/04/2015 at 13:10

    Ahhh. trying to confuse people. people not wishing to be named when they make statements usually have no idea. Because if they did they would name themselves. I dont trust un named sources

    SCaddict · 02/04/2015 at 15:25

    It's not just about round 1 for Gaz. If you don't have him from the start it will be very tricky to get him in the first 7 or 8 rounds even if he drops $50K to $100K which is no guarantee of even happening.

    And as Mad Mick said you don't want to miss out on those monster scores on say round 3 or 4 or perhaps it could even be round 1 against the Dees.

Josh · 02/04/2015 at 12:59

I’m just trying to decide on a few players, feedback would be much appreciated

Patrick Ryder
seeing so he isn’t going to be banned, usually at the start of the year he starts well also he said that his “love for footy is greater” after his move to pa I was wondering if he was a good option in the forward line to use dpp

Also Brendan goddard
Will he be consistent this year?

Jack Steven is another one
Will he be consistent?
Cheers

BundyBear · 02/04/2015 at 13:06

Anyone have an opinion on Johnathon Ceglar from Hawthorn. Always seems to be thereabouts. Just interested what the community thinks.

    derek · 02/04/2015 at 14:37

    just not cheap enough. I think he will keep his place at the hawks, maybe end up as the #1 ruck. But he needs to be cheaper than he is to consider.

Hotplates · 02/04/2015 at 13:10

Hi Community, hoping you could please help me out with some thoughts on my side:

RUC: Goldstein, NicNat (Read)
FWD: Bartel, Martin, Swan, Salem, Clark, Hogan (Lonie, Krakouer)

Any help much appreciated!

    Hotplates · 02/04/2015 at 13:19

    Actually gone with Lumumba instead of Higgins.

    Luviboy1 · 02/04/2015 at 13:22

    Pretty generic team, but that seems to be the go for a lot of people. Not many POD's, nothing that really sets it apart from other sides. Solid team nonetheless. Wish you good luck.

Matt · 02/04/2015 at 13:10

whos the best replacement for pendles?

    Luviboy1 · 02/04/2015 at 13:19

    Jelwood, Fyfe or Beama.

The Roughnuts · 02/04/2015 at 13:14

if you were to choose 1 of – S Mitchell, J Stevens, C Judd or A Swallow who would it be?

    Luviboy1 · 02/04/2015 at 13:18

    In order of preference: Judd, Swallow, Mitchell, Stevens.

    shezza · 02/04/2015 at 14:02

    I’d go Stevens Swallow and wouldn’t even consider the other two. Imo, Neale is better value than Mitchell and Judd

    The Roughnuts · 02/04/2015 at 14:18

    not sold on Neale. I have gone Swallow for the moment. It will all hinge on teams being announced tonight and seeing If I need to make some tweaks to my defence which will require cash.

Matt · 02/04/2015 at 13:16

Why is no one picking tom bellchambers? is he a worth pick?

    Luviboy1 · 02/04/2015 at 13:18

    I assure you I know multiple people picking TBC. All depends on whether you want ruck back up I guess. Personally hes not my type and Im not confident in him. Go with your gut mate.

    SCaddict · 02/04/2015 at 15:29

    If named as should be a mere formality he's a certainty in Addicts.

    His deplorable injury record would put off some but so was the case with Sandi heading into 2014. Others may be concerned with how the ruck duties could be shared with Giles that could affect his ceiling but all up there appears to be fantastic value there post Ryder.

    Marco_Polo94 · 02/04/2015 at 17:34

    He's in my team as R2 unless Giles is named as well. As the number 1 ruck i see him scoring just as much as other premium rucks.

Luviboy1 · 02/04/2015 at 13:17

Is starting Mummy and Goldy in ruck, too heavy? I had 120,000 extra cash and I was happy with other areas, so I upgraded Minson to Mummy

    The Roughnuts · 02/04/2015 at 13:42

    I have both of Mummy & Goldy. Mummy will score massive points early could be a perfect Captain option in the early rounds.

      Luviboy1 · 02/04/2015 at 13:43

      Already got the C on him haha.

    shezza · 02/04/2015 at 14:03

    I have same rucks and have C on Mumford. I have been thinking of downgrading to Maric as he will ton it up against Wood tonight

    Tofor · 02/04/2015 at 14:57

    I've got the same too. Almost went Jacobs Mummy, but had just enough cash to stick with Golden Mummy combo. Can't go wrong really, I'm probably going to put the C on Mumford.

Anth · 02/04/2015 at 13:23

Newnes and Dangerfield

OR

Lumumba and Jobe Watson

    Luviboy1 · 02/04/2015 at 13:27

    Newnes and Danger

    zeesus · 02/04/2015 at 15:39

    Newnes and Danger

Jim · 02/04/2015 at 13:24

jesse hogan or tom bellchambers to start at F4?

Andy Bull · 02/04/2015 at 13:27

Nerves are starting to kick in. Would love some feedback on my team (which is constantly changing – GAJ has just been removed).

DEF: Shaw, Newnes, Lumumba, Thumper, Goodes, Saad (McIntosh, Hamling)
MID: Pendles, Fyfe, Beames, Slone, Parker, Cripps, Heeney, Ellis Yol, (Anderson, Lambert)
RUCK: Goldstein, TBC (Cox)
FWD: Grey, Martin, Bennell, Swan, Salem, Clarke (Hogan, Lamb).

Cheers

Phil · 02/04/2015 at 13:35

Josh Kennedy or Luke Parker?

Has Parker ever been tagged? Because we know Kennedy can handle it pretty well
Parker is cheaper and had a better second half of the year
Both are extremely durable.
Who do you reckon? Who's more likely to get tagged?

    Luviboy1 · 02/04/2015 at 13:37

    Both are good options. Like for like. Id go with Parker tho.

    @emhoy · 02/04/2015 at 13:37

    I have both, JPK is the safer pick but I reckon Parker will outscore JPK this year and could be top 5 mid.

      Luviboy1 · 02/04/2015 at 13:40

      *will be top 5 mid πŸ˜‰

    SCaddict · 02/04/2015 at 15:36

    Both JPK and Parker are very tough to effectively tag given how much inside footy they play similar to Beams, Rocky, Pendles etc.

    More attractive for opposition coaches to sit a player on say a Hannebery, Jack or McVeigh instead and limit outside run.

    I still believe the sky is the limit for Parker so he's my pick. If you take out the grand final where let's face it the Swans didn't even show up he averaged a whopping 128 in his last 7 weeks up until and including the prelim. That would've priced him at about $688K for that period!

Declan · 02/04/2015 at 13:46

Maric or minson?
Selwood or beams?
Any help would be appreciated

Jim · 02/04/2015 at 13:56

brendon goddard, jimmy bartel, lance franklin, bennel, roughead or bontempelli which one should i start?

    Tim Darbyshire · 02/04/2015 at 14:00

    I go with goddard or Bartel. Or both!!

Tofor · 02/04/2015 at 14:03

Hey all, would appreciate your comments.
I think I've chopped and changed my side about 68 times…
Still a bit unsure on a few rookies, but this looks like it will be my side heading into tonights opener?
Any late tweaks you'd recommend?

DEF: Shaw, Newnes, Lumumbra, Goodes, N Brown, McIntosh (Hamling, Saad)
MID: Fyfe, Kennedy, Lewis, Parker, Griffin, Rich, Cripps, Sheed (Heeney, Ellis-Yolmen, Miller)
RUC: Mumford, Goldstein (Cox for RUC/FWD)
FWD: Gray, Martin, Swan, Bellchambers, Salem, Clark (Hogan, Lamb)

Would love feedback/ advice.

Andy Bull · 02/04/2015 at 14:05

Boak, Danger or Watson as M5 (alongside Pendles, Fyfe, Slone and Parker).

Adrian · 02/04/2015 at 14:05

bontempelli or tex walker??

    zeesus · 02/04/2015 at 15:38

    tex. POD!

Blake · 02/04/2015 at 14:07

Here is my dilemma do i go

OPT 1. KK & Well/rich
or
OPT 2. mcintosh/JPK

opt 2. adds another set and forget to the line up who can stay for the year
opt 1. allows me to have two players which will generate coin while there price reaches the mid 400k mark quicker thus making is less expensive to trade up in both line to e.g. and prem def and say an ablett mid season?

torn between this all day any comment would be appreciated.

    Blake · 02/04/2015 at 15:17

    wells/rich/wallis *

    Blake · 02/04/2015 at 16:16

    anyone?

      Dools · 02/04/2015 at 16:37

      Hi Blake,
      Without seeing you team and it's structure this is very hard to give advice but KK is an excellent pick JPK is a great POD and will continue to score 115s AVG
      Wells Not a fan
      Rich NOT a FAN

        Blake · 02/04/2015 at 16:59

        thanks heaps mate if its helps and have any other advice for my team as it standsit with OPT 2 is this:

        Back: simpson, shaw, newnes, goodes, mcintosh, saad
        mid: fyfe, selwood, beams, JPK, lewis, griffin, cripps, ellis-yolmen
        ruck: goldy, maric
        foward: bartel, martin, swam, salem, clark, hogan

          Dools · 02/04/2015 at 17:51

          Simpson is a good player but not in my team.
          Shaw has not completed a season since 2007. Will he break lose because of the inclusion of Malcheki? I do not think so
          Newnes is in everyones team but not in my team
          Midfield is good enough to get away with it I have 5 of your players
          Rucks are the same
          Hogan I have gone cold on maybe look Lamb or Daniels???
          No GAJ means you need Gray to my way of thinking in the Fwd line
          Blake back yourself mate … If you have a plan and you think it a goer Do it !!!
          All the Best mate and don't be shy on letting us know how you went
          Cheers

            Blake · 02/04/2015 at 18:03

            thanks for taking the time to comment champ really appreciate it having no GAJ is a concern of mine and was the main cause of this post due the fact if i have those two midpricers (option 1) it will be much easier and quicker to bring him in as appose to trying to upgrade a rookie at say 300k

Adsy · 02/04/2015 at 14:08

Good luck to all the teams this year. A lot of similar teams with some small PODs so I'll put mine up for a look, with some questions:

B: Shaw, Newnes, Lumumba, Ibbotson, Goodes, N.Brown (McIntosh, Saad)
M: Fyfe, Beams, Parker, Griffen, Wines, Rich, Cripps, Heeney (Ellis-Yolmen, Lambert, Krakouer)
R: Goldstein, Maric (Cox)
F: Gray, Martin, Swan, Bellchambers, Salem, M.Clark (Hogan, T.Lamb)

Notes:
1. Mid selection policy risky, no GAJ or Pendles but willing to upgrade my underperformers to them if circumstances permit. Top 5 all hopefully are keepers though.
2. Using the Bellchambers/Cox ruck swing if needed, but hopefully the boys stay on track.
3. Tossed up for two weeks about Dusty Martin vs Jimmy Bartel (liked Bartels game against Adelaide NAB 1 and had him for years) but hopefully Martin has a consistently great year.
4. Sold by Jock re: Ibbotson, rest of backline fairly community-same decisions.

Any possible changes, or things people think I should consider? Rookies will be reassessed later today. Cheers!

    Tofor · 02/04/2015 at 14:55

    Insanely similar to my team. We have one difference in defence, four in mid and one in ruc otherwise identical… forward lines the same ha ha.
    I also considered the same points as you.. but have opted not to go with Ibbo.

      Adsy · 02/04/2015 at 15:20

      Great minds think alike! I only went Ibbo after the podcast: have had KK, Henderson from Adelaide, Geary and even Harry Taylor in on a different structure, but this looks like the way I'll go at this stage, barring a major meltdown at the selection table this arvo.
      My POD this year is going to be in the premo mids, instead of trying to pick a POD from the mid pricers which is generally hit and miss. At least I know they are pretty proven, and I can always move up without being stuck in mid-limbo when they decrease. I just need to be on the ball and do it early enough. Lets see I guess!

    Tofor · 02/04/2015 at 16:36

    Yep, sound logic!
    It's all a bit of a lottery who you pick, but setting yourself up with a good plan/structure always helps.
    Good luck for the season mate.

The Roughnuts · 02/04/2015 at 14:19

            Mainly GnR although I do have TBC at R2 and going for a midprice heaven or hell strategy in defence ($2.2M spend) for much the same reasons as Jock.

derek · 02/04/2015 at 14:45

I am seeing more teams today with bellchambers in it. I even played with my team and found that you can almost for the same price have Lueyberger and Bellchambers OR Mummy.

Having Leuy and Bell you can use the loophole (RUC or FWD) and you should get some good cash increase. I'm thinking Bell could increase $120k and Leuy maybe $80k, that is $200k, where I think Mummy is full priced.

problem I see, and this is the general problem with having to many Midpricer, TRADES. Now it is easy to say that you can trade them out and pick up fallen premiums, but this depends on a suitable cash cow to be culled and a suitable bubble rookie to get on, plus there isn't problems elsewhere with injury etc.

I'm sticking to guns and rookies, my only midpricer is going to be T Cloke, that is my shark move for the year.

    kevwal · 02/04/2015 at 17:48

    Agreed Derek. Just can't bring myself to rely on either hoping the midpricers become keepers or, the midpricers generate enough cash to get the premo in. That said, Higgins stood out with the research and NAB, he will generate points and rise in value pre-byes, then he gets the flick, don't care, he could be averaging 120, don't care, he goes pre-byes. IF he lasts that long. The other thirteen are keepers.

Danners16 · 02/04/2015 at 14:49

Hey guys, just looking to make some minor changes to my team before lockout. Which 3 should I go with?
Hodge, J.Steven, J.Hogan/T.Lamb
OR
B.Goodes, L.Parker, Bellchambers
Thoughts would be great thanks
Good luck to everyone this season as well

    Mike · 02/04/2015 at 18:34

    Goodes Parker Bell should make you heaps of cash.
    Hodge would be good if he lasts the distance – good pod as not many are going with him due to age.

Pete · 02/04/2015 at 14:53

Looking forward to seeing Ablett up forward kicking goals

Tommy · 02/04/2015 at 15:01

Who to put on field? McIntosh or Saad and Tyson or Clark. Worried Frawley or Gibson might keep Clark quiet

    zeesus · 02/04/2015 at 15:36

    McIntosh and Tyson

      derek · 02/04/2015 at 16:52

Thoughts on kade simpson

    dognino · 02/04/2015 at 16:03

    Should play 22 and avg 90-95, like the last 7 years

    shezza · 02/04/2015 at 16:04

    He is in my side. His scores fluctuate but to me, he is another midfielder and plays on wing and no one goes near him. He averages 25+ possessions and only games he has missed the past few years was when Wellingham knocked him out. He is very durable and blokes like Murphy, Gibbs will get tagged before him imo

    derek · 02/04/2015 at 16:54

    love him, put him in your team

Ben · 02/04/2015 at 15:53

      Named fourth on subs bench. Worried about the vest?

Matt · 02/04/2015 at 16:02

Would anyone go Tarrant over Hogan?

    Matt · 02/04/2015 at 16:06

    or both?

      Mike · 02/04/2015 at 18:32

      Tarrant if he was named.

    SCaddict · 02/04/2015 at 16:14

    I'm running right now with both but will make a final decision once all the teams are announced in a couple of hours.

      Luviboy1 · 02/04/2015 at 16:24

      Tarrant on field and Hogan bench? Room for only one.

        SCaddict · 02/04/2015 at 16:39

        If you only have 1 spot to fill i still think you have to pick Hogan first as his JS seems golden. Reckon Tarrant's JS is pretty decent too but there's a little more uncertainty there.

        That said it wouldn't surprise me if Tarrant slightly surpassed Hogan's average for the season as young key forwards can often struggle in their first few years at AFL level, even the highly lauded ones.

    Phil · 02/04/2015 at 16:31

    Im very keen on having both on the bench so much so I traded out Kennedy for Parker to fund it. Went against one of my golden rules of never sacrifice cash on the field to make cash off the field but people have been talking up Parker so much they've got me convinced. I don't like Lamb, Lonie or Daniel too much

Community thoughts on Brodie Smith vs Michael Hibberd?

Both good options but Hibbs lack of pre season has me leaning towards Smith

    Luviboy1 · 02/04/2015 at 16:22

    Smith, think he could be a solid mid 500's player this year.

@SeanySamp · 02/04/2015 at 16:17

Ripping podcast fellas!
I think this is a common dilemma: choose 2 out of Gray, Bartel and Martin, focusing on value and not just point scoring.
I can see Bartel going 105+ with a midfield role, and Martin the same with continued growth. But bloody hell Gray looks nice sitting there.

    Luviboy1 · 02/04/2015 at 16:21

    Gray, because hes a gun, and Bartel, because hes also a gun.

      @SeanySamp · 02/04/2015 at 16:34

      Martin is also a gun. My head's gonna explode soon

    shezza · 02/04/2015 at 16:27

    They are my three premiums forwards: Gray, Bartel and Martin

      @SeanySamp · 02/04/2015 at 16:35

      Yeah I'd love to do that, but I've gone a 3/3 structure up forward, and Swan is locked in.

I have Goldstein locked at R1 but my R2 is constantly changing between the mullet, nic nat and TBC. At this stage i have big Ivan but i have a feeling i should be starting this season with nic nat. Thoughts community?

    Brillsy21 · 02/04/2015 at 16:45

    what about minson?

    Adsy · 02/04/2015 at 16:54

    I've gone with Ivan due to consistency, time on ground and (touch wood) hopefully injury free year. Nic Nat not far behind but with Lycett back up who knows, at least we used to know output based on the NN/Big Cox duo. I've also got TBC up forward as injury cover, so got a bit each way there.

    cow roll · 02/04/2015 at 17:53

    Mullet. A fully fit NN is still unpredictable, lacks ball awareness and his team is a bit messy at the moment.

Garryowen · 02/04/2015 at 16:37

Back: Shaw, Gibson, Hibbard, Newnes, Goodes, McIntosh (Saad & Hamlin)

Mid: GAJ, Pendles, Fyfe, Lewis, Cripps, Newton, CEY, Heeney (Vandenburg, Anderson & Miler)

Ruck: Maric & Nic Nat (Read)

Fwd: Gray, Bartel, Swan, TBC, Salem, Clark (Hogan & Lamb)

$123k in the bank. Where could I spend that money. Loathe to upgrade a rookie to mid pricer…

Tim · 02/04/2015 at 16:49

Looks like my team set subject to final team selections:
Def: Shaw, Gibson, Newnes, Lumumba, McIntosh, Hamling (Oxley, Saad)
Mids: Fyfe, Selwood, Priddis, Dangerfield, Griffin, Rich, Cripps, Vandenberg (Ellis-Yolmen, Miller, Lambert)
Rucks: Blicavs, Lycett (Read)
Fwds: Gray, Bartel, Martin, Swan, Salem, Clark (Hogan, Lamb)

    derek · 02/04/2015 at 16:57

    first team I have seen with Blicavs, what made you pick him?????

    Tofor · 02/04/2015 at 17:42

    Not bad! Rucks made my eyes bleed though. Otherwise solid!

@SeanySamp · 02/04/2015 at 16:51

I'm over-thinking – need the community's help.
Kolo/Swallow/Franklin vs
Ibbo/Swallow/Gray vs
Kolo/Ward/Bont?

    Cyril is Delicious · 02/04/2015 at 16:54

    I would go the second option, can’t really look past Robbie Gray

    shezza · 02/04/2015 at 16:58

    I reckon Kk will average most out of your options
    I reckon Gray will average most out of your options
    I reckon Ward will average more than Swallow

    @SeanySamp · 02/04/2015 at 17:18

    Cheers guys.

james · 02/04/2015 at 16:55

Brodie smith, kade simpson, michael hibbered or luke hodege thoughts?

    SCaddict · 02/04/2015 at 16:59

    Kade I would trust most out of that bunch especially given his iron man durability only missing 3 games in 9 years!

    But I reckon all 4 have decent claims at being a top 6 defender for the season.

    Fluff · 02/04/2015 at 17:00

    Simpson

    shezza · 02/04/2015 at 17:01

    Simpson plays higher up the ground, Smith more effective, Hodge just a dead set gun.
    I have Simpson. I am waiting to see what role Smith will have with new coach. I reckon Henderson is the one to watch this year

    Tofor · 02/04/2015 at 17:42

    Love Hodge! Just too risky.. durability a huge concern.

Fluff · 02/04/2015 at 16:57

Wines & peddles v priddis & Parker

    shezza · 02/04/2015 at 16:59

    Pendles and Parker

      Fluff · 02/04/2015 at 17:23

      Can't exact money situation.

    cow roll · 02/04/2015 at 17:44

    2

Petters · 02/04/2015 at 16:59

B Goodes & Rich or Hamling & Goddard?

Couple of other trades that would need to be made but that's the overall position it would give me.

Thoughts?

    SammyC · 02/04/2015 at 17:14

    the 1st option mate

Josh · 02/04/2015 at 17:09

Heeney or Elis-Yolmen on the ground
And
Hamling or Mcintosh on the ground

    FootyFanatic · 02/04/2015 at 17:10

    Ellis-Yolmen and Mcintosh. (Assuming neither start as sub)

      dognino · 02/04/2015 at 17:13

      Agreed

    Josh · 02/04/2015 at 17:19

    Cheers

Jimmy · 02/04/2015 at 17:09

Thoughts on my team guys?

DEFS: K simpson, h shaw, newenes, lumbumba, goodes, mcintosh (n brown, saad)

Please can i have some suggestion about improving the team? should i start saad or mcintosh at D6?

    Tofor · 02/04/2015 at 17:43

    I've got McIntosh as D7.. scared about his Job Security though! Surely N Brown will play.. though may score a 30… (I've got him too)

SammyC · 02/04/2015 at 17:13

need one to choose either pendles or rockliff? who should i pick up?

thoughts please πŸ™‚

    Luviboy1 · 02/04/2015 at 17:18

    Pendles

    Mike · 02/04/2015 at 18:37

    Rocky – Beams to cop the tag maybe.

Jimmy · 02/04/2015 at 17:15

joel selwood or dayne beams?

    Luviboy1 · 02/04/2015 at 17:17

    Beama

    cow roll · 02/04/2015 at 17:47

    Shelly

    Bonters · 03/04/2015 at 17:01

    Joel maybe just. Can't go wrong with either

Andy · 02/04/2015 at 17:15

Three spots left, competitive players only 284674

alex · 02/04/2015 at 17:16

why are people picking danger

    FootyFanatic · 02/04/2015 at 17:35

    Because he is a gun, averaged 118 a couple years back

Bobby · 02/04/2015 at 17:19

D.swan, B.goodes
or
D.heppell, N.krakouer

    Luviboy1 · 02/04/2015 at 17:21

    Swan and Goodes

    kevwal · 02/04/2015 at 17:53

    Krakouer not elevated off the rookie list

derek · 02/04/2015 at 17:21

Zac Dawson or Gary Rohan???

    cow roll · 02/04/2015 at 17:46

    Here in the west, we call Zac Dawson the potato.

      derek · 02/04/2015 at 17:57

      why?

        cow roll · 02/04/2015 at 21:39

        Coz he rolls around and does not much else. Makes a lot of mistakes as well. Don't know what Lyon see in him.

    kevwal · 02/04/2015 at 17:54

    I needed that Derek, thanks for the break in the head spins.

      derek · 02/04/2015 at 17:57

      I don't know how the Hawks let Zac go!!!!

    Sully321 · 02/04/2015 at 18:01

    Don't like either to be honest got any other options?

Sully321 · 02/04/2015 at 17:23

Danger, boak or wines?

DEF: Simpson, Shaw, Newnes, Goodes, McIntosh, Saad (Oxley, Hamling)

MIDS: Ablett, Pendlebury, Fyfe, JPK, Griffin, Cripps, Cockatoo, Heeney (Vandenberg, EC-Y, Miller)

RUCS: Goldy, Nic Nat (read)

FWDS: Gray, Bartell, Martin, Swan, Cloke, Hogan (Lonie, Lamb)

Have I gone too heavy in forwards and too weak in defence?

    Liam · 02/04/2015 at 17:45

    It looks solid derek, but how confident are you having two on field rookies down back? I've played with the idea of two on field rookies down back, but often find myself downgrading bartel or swan for an ibbotson or bewick in defence. Just go with your gut feel mate

Dyl · 02/04/2015 at 17:39

Any recommended changes? Honest thoughts please

DEF: Shaw, Gibson, Newnes, Ibbotson, Goodes, Saad (Brown, McIntosh)
MID: Ablett, Fyfe, Watson, Griffen, Swallow, Cripps, Heeney, Ellis-Yolmen (Miller, Lambert, Vandenburg)
RUC: Goldstein, Naitanui (Cox)
FWD: Gray, Martin, Swan, Bellchambers, Clark, Salem (Saad, Hogan)

$100,000 left in the bank, thinking of using Bellchambers just incase Naitanui breaks down

Marco_Polo94 · 02/04/2015 at 17:40

Bloody hell I'm keen for tonight.

Pendles, Maric, rookie defender. Or Parker, Bellchambers, Taylor at D2 taking me to D5?

Cozza · 02/04/2015 at 17:56

Hi Community,

Help is needed please!!

Team is:
Backs – Shaw, Hibberd, Newnes, Ibbotson, Goodes, McIntosh (Hamling, Saad)
Mids – Ablett, Fyfe, Sloane, Lewis, Swallow, Rich, Cripps, Heeney (Vandenberg, CEY, Miller)
Rucks – Maric, NicNat (Read)
Forwards – Gray, Martin, Swan, Salem, Clark, Hogan (Daniel, Lamb).

Rookies subject to being named and $36k left over.

Stocked with this team. However, been thinking about Jock's comments regarding bringing in a backup ruck. Tossing up bringing TBC into the forward line, switching Gray to the Mids and either doing a straight swap for Rich (leaving $70k to maybe upgrade ibbo) or Swallow>TBA leaving me with $234k in the bank I can use to maybe upgrade a forward (which will be looking thin with TBC at F3).

Any advice greatly appreciated! Thanks Community

Petters · 02/04/2015 at 18:00

Bartel or Martin?

and go…

    Cyril is Delicious · 02/04/2015 at 18:22

    I have gone Bartel

    Mike · 02/04/2015 at 18:31

    Both

      Petters · 02/04/2015 at 18:48

      Over Swan?

Theme · 02/04/2015 at 18:03

Few spots left in the league. 504651

Cozza · 02/04/2015 at 18:11

Few spots left in 547652 as well if anyone wants to join

cow roll · 02/04/2015 at 18:17

Danger or Bartel?

Dean · 02/04/2015 at 18:18

Are you guys having problems logging into supercoach?

    kevwal · 02/04/2015 at 18:21

    Not yet Dean

    Mike · 02/04/2015 at 18:39

    Its slow. Everyone on atm.

    BTW Vandenberg named fourth on subs. Ahhh the dreaded vest looms.

Tree · 02/04/2015 at 18:37

Goddard or Bartel for F2?

jimbo · 02/04/2015 at 18:39

GEARY OR IBBO URGENT

    dognino · 02/04/2015 at 18:58

    Not really urgent, you still get free trades up until the last game on monday

Mike · 02/04/2015 at 18:44

Mitchell named as emergency for Syd. There goes that former lock.
They didn’t learn from the GF!? Too many outside players, not enough grunt.

Dr Spock · 02/04/2015 at 19:59

Hey community, seeking some advice before final lockout:

Option 1:
Harry Taylor & Jesse Hogan

OR

Geary & Bellchambers

Started out with Guns n Rookies strategy but getting too nervous about having no ruck backup so thinking option 2 at this stage, even though it’s too extra mid-pricers

Luke · 04/04/2015 at 11:15

Lumumba & Goodes
Or
KK & Ibbo?

shezza · 04/04/2015 at 11:30

I have done more trading, i will find out around 430pm if it is going to backfire on me. I’ve traded out Gaj and Goodes and put in JPK and Geary. Syd have a great last month in their fixture and could allow me to get big points towards the end and if I’m out of the running of $50K, I will win all of my leagues. If Gaj turns it on, i might eat humble pie and trade Martin out for Gaj and downgrade either Geary or Henderson.

    shezza · 04/04/2015 at 11:35

    My other mids are: JPK Parker Fyfe Beams Griffen. Cripps krakouer
    Emg: vandenberg heeney anderson

    I deliberately didn’t pick top 3 priced midd in Ablett (do feel with no pre season surely he has to go down in value???he’ll probably now get 180 today and I’ll eat my hat!!) Pendlebury – think Coll will struggle this year and he may go down in value and Rockliff. Can see him going more forward this year with Robbo, Beams and Bundy

Tree · 04/04/2015 at 16:18

Is Goddard in defence with holding on to or should I get another rookie in? Already have: saad, mckintosh and hamling. Any input is appreciated.

Dave2008 · 04/04/2015 at 17:52

A SWALLOW or R Griffen ?

Dave2008 · 04/04/2015 at 18:06
