It took a call in from an old mate of the community night podcast to remind me of an undeniable fact. When a Great King falls – the way is left clear for another Great man to take his place.

It’s a podcast about priority at the trade table. A podcast about reflection on greatness.. and anticipation of greatness to come. But mostly its a podcast about making sound Supercoach selections in the lead up to round 3.

Beauty!!

NVB > Krak in a few weeks people, golden trade.

    Jye · 16/04/2015 at 22:52

    Krak hasn't cemented his spot yet, but lets hope so

BCHawks · 16/04/2015 at 22:13

Hi Jock I couldn't get a message in tonight but was wondering if you could help me out . I was stupid enough to trade in Leuy last week and now am not sure what to do with him these are my 2 options
A) Leuy to Bont via TBC
B) Pendles to Shiels and Leuy to Goldy

    LEKD0G · 16/04/2015 at 22:17

    Dear god hold pendles. luey to bont

      BCHawks · 16/04/2015 at 22:21

      Thanks Lek worried a bit about Pendles injury but will hold him.

mysterycannon · 16/04/2015 at 22:14

Some Supercoach wisdoms to keep me company on the drive to work tomorrow! Cheers Jock!

Johnny · 16/04/2015 at 22:15

Rejoice, here come the rookies

Goldie · 16/04/2015 at 22:20

Need guidance community – are people trading out Kane lambert? With him out I've got no bench cover in my forward line. Should I bring in Jayden McGrath or Jack Lonie? (Already have Salem, hogan, Clark)

Leaning towards McGrath, although having Lonie works out better in terms of bye structures.

Josh · 16/04/2015 at 22:20

I am looking to trade Tom Lamb to either Van Berlo (as id swtich Krak to the fwds) or Jayden Mcgrath?

CashCows · 16/04/2015 at 22:21

So problems just like most..any help would be fanbloodytastic

I have GAJ and S.Selwood with pendles and cripps ( hopefully these fellas will get up) and 68k warchest 30 trades

I was thinking maybe a double down of GAJ/SSelwood to Vandenburg/Hogan with a DPP swing, this would only be for cash generation but burns a couple of trades.

The next would be to keep structures to a fyfe or sloane (ablett) and rich/ NVB/Vandenburg (SSelwood)
or possibly go something like fyfe and mundy?

My mid setup is GAJ,JPK,Pendles,Lewis,Griffin,SSelwood,Cripps,CEY,Heeney, J.Nelson, T.miller?

Any thoughts would be great..

    mysterycannon · 16/04/2015 at 22:26

    Jeez, thats a tough one…

    I like the idea of getting both rookies, but realistically, I don't think you can go without Fyfe's points if you only have VDB's points in comparison. I'd do Fyfe and a rookie if it was me…

    jack · 16/04/2015 at 22:48

    Trade Ablett for Fyfe and Selwood to vanderberg and pocket cash

      CashCows · 16/04/2015 at 23:01

      Yes I think this could be the option, the only other plan is bench ablett , move selwood to vburg and move lamb to hogan, then go fyfe next week as he will only go up a few grand?

        CashCows · 16/04/2015 at 23:10

        or trade miller/lamb to vburg/hogan, then trade selwood/ablett next week?

    CashCows · 17/04/2015 at 00:13

    Ok I think i will go, ablett/selwood out, swing r.gray mid trade in hogan/vburg. (i think too valuable not to have both should make 250-300k)

    I then have 977k in the kitty plus netting ~150k next week (hoges and vandy), then move lamb/miller on next week, swing gray back the middle then i have miller/nelson plus money 13-20k to bring in fyfe/mundy or sloane/mundy and have rookies that can fattened properly..

    what a hurdle!

    shane · 17/04/2015 at 12:28

    Dont know how sound this theory is, but being rnd 3 leaves huge opportunity for you to get both rookies this week and pocket the cash and next week or week after you bring in a selwood type or a couple of fallen forwards. Id allow for a loss of 60 points per premium, per week. So for 120 points you might save 2-300k

Jake · 16/04/2015 at 22:21

G'day community!
Was hoping somebody could help me out, I've got Touk Miller on my bench, but have the money to trade him out for Van Berlo. Do you think its worth it?

Cheers, Jake

    mysterycannon · 16/04/2015 at 22:24

    If you've nothing else pressing, I think it's a solid move. Van Berlo will make more money in next few games than Miller looks like he'll make all season.

      Lach · 16/04/2015 at 23:29

      Thinking of the same trade, looks pretty solid to me atm

      Spifflicator · 17/04/2015 at 07:14

      Miller is at least getting games, and I reckon he will pick up as the season goes along. All he needs is one 80+ and he's making plenty, but for those desperate to get in VanBerlo go for it!

Harry. B · 16/04/2015 at 22:23

Thanks Jock.
Ablett to Sloane, Danger or Treloar?

    cam · 16/04/2015 at 22:38

    Sloane

      CashCows · 16/04/2015 at 23:21

      Sloane or JPK or Fyfe (but you probably already have him)

cam · 16/04/2015 at 22:24

I want to bring in nvb and McCarthy, but I can only do 1 as I had to trade Ablett out. Which trade should I do

Miller/cripps out for nvb or

Lambert out for McCarthy

If the nvb trade who should I trade out cripps or miller?

    randomcliche · 16/04/2015 at 23:15

    B/w Miller, Cripps and Wells I traded out Miller. I think we've seen enough from Miller….not yet seen enough from Cripps.

Connor · 16/04/2015 at 22:24

Here is my thinking…

THIS WEEK – G. Ablett > D. Rich + B. Goodes > K. McIntosh

NEXT WEEK – P. Cripps > Premium Midfielder

I think that Rich can make around 150k for me and he has a fantastic BE!!

Thoughts???

    cam · 16/04/2015 at 22:30

    At first I was shocked but I saw Ur plan for next.
    I like this move a lot.
    But what if cripps comes out and scores 100 what would u do then?

      Connor · 16/04/2015 at 23:21

      Then I wait for his BE to level out then use the cash to upgrade

    Jimi · 17/04/2015 at 00:47

    I've done Ablett > NVB + B Goodes > Oxley – all my rookies are now set.

    Next: Miller > Sloan + Geary > Smith/Docherty

    Needless to say I think this is a great move and you should do similar.

harry · 16/04/2015 at 22:27

Wisdom needed Jock! Currently I DO NOT have Bont. The only way I can get him in as I am going Ablett to Sloane (No cash flow) is swapping Bont to Swan. I could also upgrade Mitch Wallis to Bont but I love the bastard to much!

Is it worth is or should I give him a miss?

    mysterycannon · 16/04/2015 at 22:30

    Either you've a split personality, or you're using a selection of fake names?!

      Jarrod · 16/04/2015 at 22:32

      Haha my brother posted a question above. I forgot to change the name!

    cam · 16/04/2015 at 22:37

    Give him a miss mate, he will be good but not worth restructuring to get him

Jarrod · 16/04/2015 at 22:28

Wisdom needed Jock! Currently I DO NOT have Bont. The only way I can get him in as I am going Ablett to Sloane (No cash flow) is swapping Bont to Swan. I could also upgrade Mitch Wallis to Bont but I love the bastard to much!

    mysterycannon · 16/04/2015 at 22:34

    Don't ship Swan. Be a shame to ship Wallis before he makes money too. If they're your only too options, I would give Bont a miss and see how he goes over next few tougher matches.

    If you want him enough, would Ablett to Bont and use cash next week ruin your structures too much?

      dean · 17/04/2015 at 01:12

      I agree, i am a doggies fan, and would really would have loved to be able to get the bont into my team, but if he doesnt fit your structure, or you have to break structure just to get him in, its not worth it, look at corrective trades this week, jump on those rookies you miseed out on.

Nathan · 16/04/2015 at 22:41

So S.Selwood is my only trade this week and I jumped onto Bont. After listening to the Podcast, a seed of doubt has been planted in my mind. So who are some good options around 440k (MID and FWD, have Lambert to swing).

    CashCows · 16/04/2015 at 23:38

    Mids:
    D.Rich $348
    NVB $215
    Ziebell $449 (NDS is out so could go even better)
    Neale $468

    FWD
    Higgins $410 (FWD/DEF swing)
    The Pav $459
    McGovern $443 (fwd/def swing holding wce back line together)
    Betts $426 ( nice POD)
    Texas $438

Kieran · 16/04/2015 at 22:45

Thoughts on keeping Cripps instead of a sideways to NVB? Saves a trade and his JS still looks good and better if the Blues were to keep on their word of 'Rebuilding'.
Thanks community!

    cam · 16/04/2015 at 22:47

    Same problem mate, only also have miller so I might be trading him to nvb

    Philip · 16/04/2015 at 22:53

    I’m keeping him mainly because i need 1 trade for Ablett and one for Lambert , Cripps named this week and won’t lose money as it’s only his 2nd game shame to miss NVB on the bubble though.

      Swans2012 · 16/04/2015 at 23:22

      I reckon cripps will go ok

Philip · 16/04/2015 at 22:46

Ablett to Sloane.Lambert to Honeychurch or Hogan not sure which, any help?

    cam · 16/04/2015 at 22:48

    I would go hogan, will play every week

      Philip · 16/04/2015 at 22:57

      Thanks Cam think I’ll go that way.

Michael · 16/04/2015 at 22:49

Need our help

Looking at Hamling to Oxley…… What do you think?

    nolo · 16/04/2015 at 23:13

    No brainer. Oxley is in the best 21.

    Leighroy · 16/04/2015 at 23:31

    Snap no brainer

The Ranger · 16/04/2015 at 22:59

Jock, need ya help mate, Hogan or Vandenberg as an up grade?

    randomcliche · 16/04/2015 at 23:47

    Assuming you've an Ablett esk trade to make as well, otherwise I'd say both. Both have rippin' break evens (only 10 difference in favour of Vandenberg) so your right to have questions. I'd suggest that the vest risk on Vandenberg is enough to tip it such that if its a field spot I'd say Hogan and a bench spot Vandenberg.

Flanno24 · 16/04/2015 at 23:04

Goddard > Oxley
Cripps > NVB
or
Goodes > Oxley
Miller > NVB
Thoughts?

    Leighroy · 16/04/2015 at 23:32

    Goddard to oxley and save the second trade

    curt · 16/04/2015 at 23:33

    If have cash hold goodes on bench. Goddard onto oxley and miller to nvb and enjoy the ride on the gravy train 🙂

throttlefinger · 16/04/2015 at 23:07

Whatever you were drinking Jock, send me 2 cases of it!

Epic effort from the community and the FOF!

olo · 16/04/2015 at 23:13

Luke · 16/04/2015 at 23:22

Got some spare cash from the Gaz trade and want to premo my def line asap! So…

Goodes to Rance, Murphey or someone else? Looking for season top 5 def keeper!

    Luviboy1 · 17/04/2015 at 07:48

    Mike · 16/04/2015 at 23:32

    By the time I scroll to the bottom of your team, I’ve forgotten who was at the top.

      olo · 17/04/2015 at 00:08

      The team isn't anything fancy,

    CashCows · 17/04/2015 at 00:06

    nope don't thinkso….hold em!

    Donavan · 17/04/2015 at 00:07

    You need to get McIntosh into your defence.

      CashCows · 17/04/2015 at 00:44

      Yes he does..great pick up, drop Clancee of the overflow

        gillie44 · 17/04/2015 at 18:41

        I got him and had him from the start

          gillie44 · 17/04/2015 at 18:44

          must of forgot to put him in defence and also heath shaw

    mick · 17/04/2015 at 12:35

    just give up

Marco_Polo94 · 16/04/2015 at 23:27

Have lambert and miller. 1 trade left. Miller -> NVB, or swing lambert to the midfield and bring in McGrath? Could afford McCarthy and Dickson if I wanted but worried I'm getting sucked in by the doggies start. Cheers lads

    Bruds · 17/04/2015 at 01:23

    NVB!!!
    i'm doing miller to him and won't look back
    trust a proven player and ex captain over people who've played a couple of games

Canny the Manny · 16/04/2015 at 23:58

For those with Josh Gibson down back for the hawks or those considering bringing him in, just be wary that with Frawley's injury, Joshy Gibson will most likely give up his loose man down back role therefore his high scores. Just something to consider.

    Dean Billman · 17/04/2015 at 03:27

    I've got Gibson and I'm thinking that too mate.

Josh · 17/04/2015 at 00:04

Hey guys, I currently have ablett and I do not have hogan at the moment. What’s the best option at the moment? Thinking of going ablett -> NVB for cash generation and Tom lamb to hogan. Just worried about losing a premo, so my other option is to go ablett -> sloane? What are your opinions? Thanks lads

    Marco_Polo94 · 17/04/2015 at 00:11

    As stated in numerous articles over the week, you selected Gary as a super premium elite keeper who will knock out captains scores. Therefore I think you should be looking to bring in someone who will knock out big tons week after week. You could follow most and go Fyfe and Sloane and JPK who are all fantastic options. Or you could be a bit riskier and hope shiels form continues or a Dangerfield or a wines type. Messing with your structures if you replace Gary with NVB in my opinion.

      Spifflicator · 17/04/2015 at 07:18

      Agreed. If you can get in one of Sloane or Fyfe this week you should.

Ryan K · 17/04/2015 at 00:07

Lonie or McGrath?

    Bruds · 17/04/2015 at 01:24

    Apples and oranges Ryan
    I'm going for neither because they won't go up by enough to warrant a trade to bring them in and then one to upgrade him as well later on

Caz · 17/04/2015 at 00:14

Hi jock and community, think I will be going 2 trades this week which will be goodes down to Oxley and ablett down to either lewis or jpk. Would love your thoughts out of lewis or jpk as I already have fyfe sloane and pendles. Thnx guys.

    Luviboy1 · 17/04/2015 at 07:46

    Both completely valid options, but at a toss of a coin, I'd go JPK.

@RyanRhino14 · 17/04/2015 at 00:17

I'll be trading Ablett to Sloane because I think Sloane might average 125 from now until the byes and Lambert to Van Berlo using my Bont swing (sorry Jock for going against your advice last week) because I think Van Berlo will score and make more money than Lonie. I think everyone should always look at when the person they're trading out and trading in play, if the person you're trading in (Sloane and Van Berlo) is playing before the person you're trading out (Ablett, Lambert) I suggest you wait until the final teams come in so you know the person you're trading in isn't a late out because there might not be something worse than trading someone in before the first game starts which is when you can't reverse and then they're a late out. It happened to me last year with Mummy

Cam · 17/04/2015 at 00:22

Best option for leuy?

    Cam · 17/04/2015 at 00:38

    Btw I already have goldy

      Luviboy1 · 17/04/2015 at 07:45

      Nic Nat.

Cozza · 17/04/2015 at 00:30

Would the best option be to trade Wells to a Wallis or NVB (on field) or trade Lamb to McGrath (on the bench)?

    Jimi · 17/04/2015 at 00:53

    NVB, cheap, easy draw, solid scoring, will make a ton of cash and great JS.

Jimi · 17/04/2015 at 00:53

NVB, cheap, easy draw, solid scoring, will make a ton of cash and great JS.

Donavan · 17/04/2015 at 00:58

What is a trade worth?

I am trading Ablett to Fyfe with my first trade this week.

Question is do I use the second trade to upgrade Miller to NVB? Miller is currently on the bench, and I can't see that changing, NVB would also be on the bench or a loophole score at best. So it's not about the points. I don't consider NVB a keeper, and he would be traded out around the byes (or earlier).

But NVB will probably make at least $150k more than Miller, but will take 2 trades (1 to get him in, and 1to upgrade him), that's 1 more trade than if I just traded out Miller later.

Is a trade worth more than $150k?

Help please, and I know that an extra $150k would mean getting to premium team earlier.

    Spifflicator · 17/04/2015 at 07:21

    Miller will end up making at least $120k bye round11, more if he can chuck at least one 80odd in there. So in you're If he's not on field I can't see the value, so save the trade.

Dan · 17/04/2015 at 01:20

Could go A.Swallow to NVB. Swallow due to bleed cash and was picked to make a quick 50-80K.

Jono · 17/04/2015 at 02:12

Mind went blank with all this info….. Gone Gazza > vandenberg and lambert > hogan to correct all rooks.

600k in the kitty. Not sure if this is a waste of a trade having so much money in the till instead of going a super premo but I feel it’s more important getting the rookies right which they hopefully should be now. :/

    Jono · 17/04/2015 at 02:17

    Am I nuts?

    Spifflicator · 17/04/2015 at 07:25

    Get a premo in this week. There will still be rookies to pick up next week, so you don't need every single one of the current crop this week. Get in Fyfe or Sloane.

Ollie · 17/04/2015 at 02:26

Need to dump Tyson and S Selwood this week.

Currently tossing up between bring in Sloane and Van Berlo, other option would be Rich and one of Jack/Dangerfield/wines/Shiel/Mundy. Leaning towards the first option at the moment.

    Hazey · 17/04/2015 at 07:07

    I looked at Sloane & NVB also, but left me with 3 Crows in the mids. Prob doesn’t matter as eventually 2 will be moved on I guess.

Jack · 17/04/2015 at 05:39

Any one trading like me

Ablett to van berlo
Goodes to oxley

Then use cash to upgrade miller next week to Fyfe type?

Hazey · 17/04/2015 at 06:36

e flicked Gaz for Swan (will move fwd next week) and upgraded Hamming to Rory Laird….

But it just doesn’t feel quite right…

T/U – keep Swanny he’ll be a top 10 fwd and Hamling is nowhere near a game
T/D – Gaz to Wines, Touk Miller to NVB?

shezza · 17/04/2015 at 06:39

I have traded, then reversed trades at least 10 times this week. I have traded Beams down to Van Berlo and traded Lamb to Swan and have $93k left. This leaves me with 4 premium mids but strengthens my forwards and these are my first trades. I figure, i will get Rockliff, Ablett Pendles after mid season as my rookies will hopefully appreciated over $300-$350k. Thoughts???

    shezza · 17/04/2015 at 06:41

    My prem mids are: Fyfe JPK Parker Griffen
    My prem fwds are: Gray Martin Bartel Swan – aim to get Franklin in soon which leaves one spot for best performing fwd around mid season break.

      Swans2012 · 17/04/2015 at 07:12

      I’ve got the same sort of problem… Worried about weakening my midfield too much by bringing in van berlo (who would be m6 with rookies filling out the last 2 spots). Personally I’d hold beams, will be top 10 mid….

        shezza · 17/04/2015 at 09:47

        The only thing is my fwd emg are lamd and krak/lambert and only have 3 prem fwds. Van berlo will only get 70-80 but i plan to trade him in a few weeks for a selwood who will drop in value

Liamlane · 17/04/2015 at 06:53

Who should I trade Ablett for Fyfe or the bom

    Spifflicator · 17/04/2015 at 07:27

    Fyfe or Sloane either would be excellent.

Adsy · 17/04/2015 at 07:10

Rookie corrections:
B: McIntosh Saad Goodes N.Brown
M: CEY Heeney Miller Cripps Lambert
R: M.Cox
F: Salem Clark Hogan Lamb
I have 2 trades, don't really have any issues in prems due to bypassing GAJ at start of season so just wanting to get the right cash rookies in so I can upgrade my mid pricers ASAP. Any must haves on the bubble? Any must trade outs? Can I hold Lambert and Lamb if they aren't playing or are they first out? Hold Cripps for one more week or flick? NVB or VBerg in, or both? Help much appreciated!!

    T.J · 17/04/2015 at 07:24

    I would say you need Vandenberg in and probably NVB

    Favalinko u Beauty · 17/04/2015 at 09:16

    Lambert out Vanderberg in

    mrfosak · 17/04/2015 at 09:38

    Vandenberg for Lambert, Oxley into def for either Goodes or Brown.

Swans2012 · 17/04/2015 at 07:16

Wells to van berlo, luenberger to Franklin next week or

Wells to bont, luenberger to b smith next week

Feel as though Franklin might explode but option 2 gives defence keeper and possible forward keeper…..I just don’t know, leaning to no. 2 thoughts???

    Luviboy1 · 17/04/2015 at 07:40

    If you're willing to take a risk with Bont, go for number 2.

T.J · 17/04/2015 at 07:24

I have Ablett, Brett Goodes, Cripps and Miller I'm looking to get rid of.

This trade is definitely happening. Ablett to JPK. The Rest I'm unsure of.

Brett Goodes to Hamling or Goddard? Already have Oxley, Saad, McIntosh

Cripps to NVB. Reason? Cripps got dropped and hasn't proven himself. NVB has been a proven performer, in a winning team, and should make cash quickly. This will still leave me with over 100k to hopefully upgrade KK next week.

Miller to NVB. This trade will not leave me with much cash left.

Patrick · 17/04/2015 at 07:45

Guys bontempelli will kill them, he is much better then macrae who averaged 100 in his second season, plus you can pick him fwd

    Kev · 17/04/2015 at 08:32

    Just not sold on him yet. Proven he can beat up weaker teams. He should get more attention over the next 3 weeks against the Hawks, Crows, Sydney (a). Will judge him then

      I N Pieman · 17/04/2015 at 08:40

      Completely agree Kev. If he tears the Hawks swans & crows apart I’ll take my hat off to him. They are 3 teams that if they see a big threat will move heaven & earth to stop him. And they plenty of options to do so. Will be interesting. I smell a trap.

Kevin · 17/04/2015 at 07:56

Hey community! I am more focused on playing for league win than overall rank. I know everyone has being saying and in articles over the week, you selected Ablett as a super premium elite keeper. Therefore we should be looking to bring in someone who will knock out big tons week after week ex Sloane or JPK. I have a different idea. What do you think of these trades:

Ablett to Van Berlo
Tom Lamb to Jaden McGrath

Then next week, if one of Miller, Cripps or Newton spuds it up this week and their break even is high. I’ll trade one of them to a Sloane or JPK. As Sloan or JPK prices won’t increase as much next week then the cheaper bubble boys would be. This grants me more cash generation for the long run for the league win. Thoughts community

    Kevin · 17/04/2015 at 07:57

    I’ve got no injuries or suspensions and have all the right rookies needed in all lines

      Jules · 17/04/2015 at 10:30

      Depends if you think you’ve got your league opponents covered this week. By trading NVB in this wk let’s say he scores 85 (could be less), Sloane or JPK likely to score 110plus that’s a lot of points you’re giving away. Plus the latter two are captain potential or VC loophole.
      Personally I’ve toyed with Ablett down to a cheapo for cash gen but if you’re just gonna use this cash in wks to come to get a premo mid you may as well get them this week. Like you I’ve got all the other good rookies, but no NVB and a few spuds like Cripps and Miller. These should still make some cash though eventually.
      If you’re desperate to have NVB I’d trade one of your 3 other rookies for him this wk but you could also just hold.

cam · 17/04/2015 at 07:58

What is a higher priority, trading luey or getting my forward rookie bench right. i have lambert and lamb and looking to bring in lonie or mcgrath

    Josh · 17/04/2015 at 10:21

    Get the fwd bench in order and have someone ready to step up. Probably Lamb to Lonie, but I'm also looking at McGrath right now – not certain that Krak will have the rolled gold job security in a few weeks as everyone hopes.

Rocky · 17/04/2015 at 08:06

Hey everyone

Thoughts on gaz to either lewis or shiel ??

Let me know what yous think ! Thanks !

    Kev · 17/04/2015 at 08:17

    Lewis

    Rick Grimes · 17/04/2015 at 08:17

    Lewis is the proven premium. Shiel has killed it against weakfish opposition. He shouldn't get the tag and GWS are pretty competitive, so there is every chance he'll maintain a high average. I'm really tempted but am going to hold for another week, if Beams stinks it up it may be a straight swap.

Mike · 17/04/2015 at 08:40

Laird, Savage or Shenton?

    Hazey · 17/04/2015 at 14:41

    I’m looking at Laird

    Swans2012 · 17/04/2015 at 14:49

    Savage, huge meters gained numbers means he’s the man at the saints imo

Kev · 17/04/2015 at 08:43

Keep Goodes, low b/e an is a warm body. Oxley/Mac/Saad are the only options down back.

Cripps wasn't dropped, had a back niggle last week. Was only 3 weeks ago that he racked up 32 touches against the Cats in nab 3. Keep faith. NVB isn't killing it, a wasted trade when you're just gonna trade NVB again down the track.

John · 17/04/2015 at 08:44

thoughts of going dayne beams down to NVB?

    Brillsy21 · 17/04/2015 at 09:18

    Beams should come good soon, only trade if your using the money for something wise 😛

    Dee · 17/04/2015 at 11:07

    What’s wrong with Beams?

MangroveJack · 17/04/2015 at 09:31

G'day Jock and community,

GAJ > Sloane and KLambert > Heeney

Hanging with BGoodes/Jaksch/Cripps/Miller on the benches this week due to the above trades, and then looking next week to re-assess the rookie situation and possibly look to go Rich > JPK or similar.

Matt · 17/04/2015 at 09:40

I've got Goodes, Brown and Hamling in my DEF. Want to get Oxley in. What would you do?

    I N Pieman · 17/04/2015 at 09:43

    Personally I’d keep brown & Goodes as insurance/backup & trade Hamling to Oxley & put him on the ground

    Matt · 17/04/2015 at 09:44

    I've also got Miller and Lambert who I'm keen to move on.

MJordan · 17/04/2015 at 09:54

Guys first time posting after much reading and your expert opinions are defs needed!!

Have GAJ and Cockatoo. I have Fyfe, Pendles, Sloane
These are my options
1. Ablett > Heppell/ Cockatoo > Rich
2. Ablett > JPK/ Cockatoo > NVB
3. Ablett > Bont / Cockatoo > NVB
Am I missing any other rookies that are cheaper than NVB that can make me cash I have Vandenberg, CEY, Heeney, Miller, Cripps.

Thoughts??

    judd0 · 17/04/2015 at 13:07

    Option 2 mate, JPK should be a solid keeper. You have the other solid midfield rookies so NVB is a good pick.
    I like Heppell I'm an essendon man, but not sure if he is a keeper yet. If you get in JPK this week you can always get in Heppell later in the season when we have more of an idea how he is going to go this season.

Hinch · 17/04/2015 at 10:09

Jock, Legends of this wonderful community

1 spot in my midfield and 4 players to choose from; Vandenberg, Heeney, P. Cripps and Touk Miller
Who gets the nod?

Cheers guys

    MJordan · 17/04/2015 at 12:08

    Had the same dilemma am going with Heeney v GWS the others have tough games. I know GWS are 2 from 2 although Sydney will give them a reality check this week

Brillsy21 · 17/04/2015 at 10:09

How do you loophole your forwards as im not sure who to field out of Lonie and Clark

Josh · 17/04/2015 at 10:20

Tom Lamb. Fwd $117 and trapped on one game.

Time to take him to the slaughter? What is the word on his job security now that he's played one and missed two? Is he the next Relton? 2015's answer to Tom Clurey? I'm tempted to cut Lamb and bring in McGrath (already having Lonie, Hogan, Salem and Mitch Clark). What do people from the West know about Lamb?

Anth · 17/04/2015 at 10:20

Is it worth trading Tom Lamb to someone like a Jack Lonie?

    Anth · 17/04/2015 at 10:23

    Or Jaiden McGrath even?

      Ageneral3 · 17/04/2015 at 11:19

      YES!

        Ageneral3 · 17/04/2015 at 11:20

        I am Loony for Lonie – lock it in.

    Riley · 17/04/2015 at 16:48

    NO HOLD,

    Lamb will play plenty of games this season, Having a staggering price appreciation will only benefit your team.

Agent 57 · 17/04/2015 at 10:21

G’day community

This is the first time I’ve ever posted something on the Internet. This community seems an awesome place to start.

Do you reckon Will Minson is a season long keeper? With the new ruck rules, I’m not sure whether Minso does enough around the field not to be plopping out average scores on a regular basis. I can see his value dropping and maintaining around a low to mid $400000 meaning that it would be harder to upgrade to a Goldstein type who might maintain a mid $500000 value and regularly chip in with consistently good scores.

What do you reckon? Upgrade to a Goldstein while there isn’t too big a difference in price. Rucks are complete bastards to figure out this year.

Anyway best of luck for the weekend community.

    Brook · 17/04/2015 at 10:51

    I am trading him out this weekend … Don’t think he is a keeper … Go to Goldy if u can

    Tofor · 17/04/2015 at 11:03

    Hi Agent 57!
    Welcome. Couldn’t agree more, this is a great community for any SC enthusiast!
    Yes, its apparent that new rule changes regarding hitouts have the potential to negatively impact ruck scores. In my opinion, I think the phobia in selecting proven premium rucks has been overstated. I opted to go for a set and forget combo in Goldstein and Mumford. They may bleed a little cash, but I still expect them to average over 100, and find they are still value as I expect them to outscore the next level of Rucks (Maric and Mins on) by 20+. Goldy has pulled a 100 and a 154 and Mumford a 96 and 108. Still not bad given the ruck doom saying!
    IMO it’s worth getting Goldy.

3. votes · 17/04/2015 at 10:24

Should I consider trading Cockatoo to Van berlo or hold a few more weeks and if he is performing poorly, trade down to Krakour

Jayden · 17/04/2015 at 10:25

I have Goldy and Minson in the ruck and TBC up forward, should I bring TBC into ruck and trade Minson for Robbie Gray?

Also took a chance on Troy Menzel at start, 87 excited me, 23 frightened me. Should I get him out or hold another week and trade out goddard for oxley?

Cheers

    Josh · 17/04/2015 at 11:59

    Yeah….but no. Same as me, but I'm holding the TBC switch for now.

Ruffles · 17/04/2015 at 10:38

Hi community,

I've got Lumumba and don't see him making enough $$ or scoring enough to be a keeper. I'm thinking either Docherty (have a feeling he'll be reasonably consistent and score enough to be a keeper) or I've got enough for Brodie Smith, who looks to have at least picked up where he left off last year, not to mention Adelaide's draw and their form. Thoughts?

Tuk · 17/04/2015 at 10:41

Hi guys. Thoughts on who to trade out between Cripps and Newton?

    Gordo · 17/04/2015 at 10:54

    I think Cripps has better js

Gordo · 17/04/2015 at 10:54

Newton to vanberlo? And Is it worth trading lamb to McGrath or lonie in the fwds currently my last bench spot there

Brillsy21 · 17/04/2015 at 10:59

Cripps to NVB or hold??

    Dee · 17/04/2015 at 11:08

    Hold.

    Tofor · 17/04/2015 at 11:25

    Hold

    Josh · 17/04/2015 at 11:57

    Wait and see

    Locked and Loaded · 17/04/2015 at 12:16

    I see your haste in not wanting to miss out on NVB but Cripps must be held I'll be trading out Cockatoo for NVB if that helps

Ageneral3 · 17/04/2015 at 11:22

Great solo show. I am Loony for Lonie, no brainer.
Also, The Bont will run on and score well in 2015, only Langford can shut him down, unfortunately – He will.

Pom · 17/04/2015 at 11:36

Cracking Podcast as always. What do you reckon of getting in A. Rance or T. Mcdonald + 100k in the bank? Rance premo but mcdonald make coin?

    Josh · 17/04/2015 at 11:55

    McDonald

You BloodyRippa · 17/04/2015 at 11:38

My two bobs worth for this week……with all that Ablett cash to spend…..don't waste it on spuds or splash it around on players who are at the top of their form after 2 games. The money you spend this week (and the trade you use) to get someone like Taylor Hunt will look terrible in a few weeks time.
Focus on this….. what do I want my midfield to look like come round 18. Will you need some cash in the bank to get Rockliff and Ablett in later? Replace Ablett ONLY with another rolled gold mid who is good value at the moment. Bontempelli? As Jock said in the podcast…. he is young. What kind of shape will he be in at the end of the season? This week you can get Jordan Lewis for well under 600k. Next week you might get Selwood for under 600k. These guys are hardened warriors who will be delivering at the business end of the season. Grab one like this and pocket the change. Its a better long term move.

SideBySidebottom · 17/04/2015 at 11:42

Cockatoo to van Berlo or Goodes to Oxley.

    Josh · 17/04/2015 at 11:54

    Coq au Vin

      MJordan · 17/04/2015 at 12:10

      I'm letting the Cocky fly free this week!

Josh · 17/04/2015 at 11:52

Gaz to Sloane & Goodes to McDonald
or
Gaz to Sloane & Lambert to Hogan

    Zak · 17/04/2015 at 12:27

    You probably wouldn't want to miss out on Hogan.

      Gordo · 17/04/2015 at 14:02

      Option 2

Mister_Spock · 17/04/2015 at 12:08

This is doing my head in community!

I'm thinking Bont is a keeper – F6 worse case. Has a great run in SC finals against weak opposition that he has scored well against in the past. Yes, high risk in terms of second year blues and future tagging, but great reward!

Struggling though to fit him in, it's basically coming down to:

1. Gaz to Dangerfield and Miller to Bont
OR
2. Gaz to Sloane and save a trade. Wait for Miller and other rooks to fatten, then bring Bont in as a premo if he proves to be legit. Miller has been pretty poor over first two weeks but still low breakeven, and could be a slow burner that still makes me $150K.

Thoughts?

    Jules · 17/04/2015 at 13:47

    Depends if u think Danger will be consistent enough and in top mids at end of year or close enough to it.
    I’m torn on Bont too as i agree at worst he could be F6. I was gonna trade Lids for Bont but have enough cash to go to JPK via switch so will prob do that and wait and see on Bont.

matt · 17/04/2015 at 12:19

hey guys.

struggling with a decision to make

goodes to oxley

or

lambert to van berlo

already got cripps and think he needs another crack..
and was oxleys game last week a one off.

what do you guys think

and goodes was on my bench anyway so oxley will be too

    Jules · 17/04/2015 at 13:38

    As per podcast get rid of yr injury worries first ie Lambert.

vinnymac · 17/04/2015 at 12:20

Who will score more up to the byes? Goodes and Zorko? Or Docherty and Bontempelli?

    Jules · 17/04/2015 at 13:37

    Prob option 2. Goodes (assuming you mean Brett) a vest risk. Zorko can be very up and down

Zak · 17/04/2015 at 12:25

Two trades this week are:
Lambert to Lonie & Wells to Shiel
or
Lambert to Lonie & Wells to Rich.

If I go to Shiel I will have 1k in the bank, but I don't know if I'm shooting myself in the foot
by not having rich to make cash. Shiel would almost be a keeper if I picked him.

    Jules · 17/04/2015 at 13:35

    Have you got NVB might make more cash than Rich. I’m personally not 100% sold on Shiell.

matt · 17/04/2015 at 12:31

sloane or kennedy

shane · 17/04/2015 at 12:39

Thoughts plz? Have Goodes and Hamling, only rook I need is Oxley. Also only have Lambert as a trade out option and looking NVB. Already have 150k so I could go hamling to oxley and still lambert to nvb. But thinking Goodes for the extra cash so I can jump on a Fallin. Option 3 is probly Goodes to oxley and leave lambert there, missi.g NVB but will have 250k and possibly a TBC to Jelwood after 1 week.

    judd0 · 17/04/2015 at 13:04

    If you can get Hamling to Oxley and Lambert to NVB they would be solid trades.
    Hamling isn't getting a game and lambert is out for a while and I can't see him getting straight back into the side anyway.
    Your better off getting rid of Hamling and Lambert rather than Goodes, Goodes still has a chance of playing, they do not.

      shane · 17/04/2015 at 14:01

      Thanks mate, that does feel like the best option. The thought on Goodes is unlikely to make even 100k, so I can take the cash now and use hamling as a backline loophole (not adverse to using this strategy, currently ranked in top 2% with a juicy looking team) Im a doggies supporter and can see hamling getting 6-10 games this year starting in about a month. He is only an injury to Talia or similar away from cracking the 21. performing well in the VFL.

MoshedPotatoes · 17/04/2015 at 12:40

The beauty of starting the year with Fyfe, Sloane, Lewis instead of Ablett or Rockliff, Pendles i still have a moderate heart rate and can focus on more genius/stupid moves this week like my decision to bench Hogan and play Lonie

    Zak · 17/04/2015 at 12:52

    Thinking the same thing.

      MoshedPotatoes · 17/04/2015 at 12:57

      Hopefully the crows spank the dees and it pays off. cant see Hogan going much bigger than Lonie this week either way.

jahn · 17/04/2015 at 12:43

Would anyone else start oxley over ibbotson this week ?? Thinking oxley could go big again against the saints and ibbotson will get an average score against WC

    Jules · 17/04/2015 at 13:32

    Can you loophole oxley fri night game. Ive got both these players also but no loop unless Goodes out. Im backing Ibbo in but not confidently.

      jahn · 17/04/2015 at 14:59

      No loophole option unfortunately but I'm leaning toward Oxley for now

jimmydowland · 17/04/2015 at 12:44

thoughts on lamb to mcgrath or lonie?

    Gordo · 17/04/2015 at 13:57

    I’m thinking the same

C.BeamsDidntGetAxed? · 17/04/2015 at 12:50

Salem or Hogan on the ground??? Was thinking of loop holing one or the other on the bench as emergency if they score 80+ Lamb goes onto the ground Mitch Clarke onto the bench and hope he doesn't kick a bag against GC.

    MoshedPotatoes · 17/04/2015 at 12:58

    i benched Hogan for Lonie, There will be plenty of ball in the backline for Salem to get though keep him on.

Riley · 17/04/2015 at 13:28

Gooday Community!

Wondering who should cop the VC out of Sloane, Danger, Gray, Swan or Dusty?

Need two on field in my defence out of McIntosh, Oxley and Saad.

Need two on field in my forwards out of Clark, Salem and Hogan.

Cheers For All Thoughts! 🙂

X man · 17/04/2015 at 13:36

who to bring in for Clancy of the Overflow (or underpants)?? he really stinks.

matt3032 · 17/04/2015 at 13:36

Hi community and hello Jock "THE DON" Reynolds.
Looking for some guidance plz peeps. Ablett & Lambert = Lewis & Rich or the Bont & Van Berlo and $300,000 left in the war chest. Already have Fyfe, J Selwood, Sloane, Pends, Griffen and all major rookies in the guts

    Riley · 17/04/2015 at 16:43

    Lewis and Rich.

    Consider JPK at 612k if you have enough cash.

      matt3032 · 17/04/2015 at 22:58

      Thnx riley went that way. didnt have quite enough for JPK. so glad l did, the bont probably out now

JRod · 17/04/2015 at 13:57

Ablett to Sloane. What a great fixture Adelaide have first half of the season, time to get onboard.
Have all the obvious rookies but worried about Wells, already having injury niggles rnd2.
Thoughts on trading Wells to Rich/NVB purely for cash generation or just ride out wells until first opportunity to upgrade?

Gordo · 17/04/2015 at 13:57

Hold lamb or trade him to McGrath or lonie

Josh · 17/04/2015 at 14:31

Hi guys just needing a few different points of view.
1) I have Krakouer as a MID and looking to maybe use a trade where I take Tom Lamb out for VanBerlo (and put Krakouer up fwd)
OR
2) I keep Krakouer as a mid and look to trade Tom Lamb out for McGrath.
My head tells me VanBerlo as he has job security and higher scores per round but also it changes my structure slightly through bringing Krak up fwd.
I already have the FWD and MID rookies that you "need" just tossing up between these 2 options.
Help please?

    Riley · 17/04/2015 at 16:46

    Personally I would take option 1. Ex Captain and plenty of experience in NVB over a handful of games in McGrath. Reckon NVB will peak at higher price and will always avoid the snot vest.

      Josh · 17/04/2015 at 23:36

      Thanks mate, totally agree. I will bring in NVB as a starter for tomorrow as its a wet Adelaide oval vs Melbourne!

Sana · 17/04/2015 at 15:26

Is a Lamb or Lambert to Lonie or McGrath even trade worthy? Obviously the latter are going to increase in value, but how much, enough to warrant a trade? What do peeps think?

Jay · 17/04/2015 at 15:33

Hey fellas

Looking forward to this week!

What’s everyone thoughts

The Bont or Shiel?

    T.J · 17/04/2015 at 16:14

    Read every second comment above. Most of them are about the Bont… You would be picking Shiel as a keeper… remember that.

Kevin · 17/04/2015 at 16:30

Hey Guys

Apart from Ablett to Sloane

Should I trade Bewick for Oxley or trade out Deledio for The Bont

Cheers 🙂

Dee · 17/04/2015 at 17:03

Beauty!

Hazey · 17/04/2015 at 17:11

Ablett to Sloane, Wells to Swan (with move to fwd line in 1-2 weeks).

Does this make sense? Uncertainty over Well’s Achilles and BS saying he needs to be 100% or no game. Allows me to get Swan in before a price rise and will strengthen fwds next week where I am only going to F2 with Premo’s atm.

Conor · 17/04/2015 at 19:45

I signed up for intense debate but for some reason when ever I post it doesn't go though, I press submit and everything and I refresh the page comment isn't there.

Anyone had this same problem? or does anyone no how to fix it
