The Standing Room – Round 4

Published by Jock on

G’day Community! Welcome to The Standing Room for round 4.

A place to chew the Supercoach fat about the round in progress. How are we all getting on – what are the dilemmas you’re facing for the rest of the round – and as we move towards a critical round 5?

Jack Newnes is providing a headache early but the pain is eased by Hogan and vandenBerg scoring tons on Friday night.

Remember to take a minute to think about all the people who have sacrificed for their country this ANZAC weekend community.

Jack Newnes………………………

Alex

Is a muppet. What were we all thinking???

PJay

We weren't……………………….!

hosedawg

Question, if i put higgins on my bench in the defence as emergency.
Would he cover robbie gray for instance in my forward line?
Due to the fact higgins is FWD/DEF??
Thoughts be much appreciated

Ben

I feel like a muppet for having newnes in my team, though i made up for it by putting cripps on the field and not on the bench last minute

Lazy_Simmo

promised myself wouldn't buy into hype machines this season. Newnes leaving big brown stains..

Stickman

Higgins will need to be in your forward line to cover Gray

@t_woof

His work rate was superb vs Collingwood last weekend. I was confident he would score well v Carlton, but i was wrong.

Perhaps his work rate was a little too good, and hence why he was given a "run with" role on Murphy…..oh well…..as Jock has mentioned in the heading….the pain subsides when you look at Hogan, Vanders & Cripps scores.

Jesse.

Ripper weekend of football ahead. After another solid peroformounce do you see tom McDonald as being a reliable option? Thanks jock

Derek

He is becoming the Terlich of 2 years ago

@Rem_Wah

Jack Newnes isn't showing all that much again… Seems to have taken up a tagging role on Murphy this time – Not looking good 🙁

Redgumwon

Jack Newnes is last years Jimmy Webster. Lots of hype about both and both not delivering much

Bog rat

Haha & Karnizis the year before that

Arthur

Considering breaking many a SC rule & going a sideways trade, is trading out Griffin to Watson smart or silly?

Epidemick

History says silly. Watson great pick up but premiums should now come from trading mid pricers and rookies or injured premiums. Not warm bodies who can improve.

@t_woof

Hope you held Arthur.

Brook

KK or Adam saad onfield? Have kmac’s 42 and looping oxley

I N Pieman

Newnes is useless

@emhoy

Looking like Newnes to Hibberd next week should only cost $50K and I reckon Hibberd will end up top 8 back

Derek

Newnes has made 4 tackles. How many points for a tackle?

Derek

Everyone has Newnes. It will be interesting what people decide to do with him. I got KK and Ibbotson as well. Wait for premiums to fall

@emhoy

Hibberd is falling I reckon after today it will be his lowest price for a while unless he comes out and smashes a 120 🙂

Ben

hibberd 140 today

@t_woof

Agree Derek, will be very interesting what coaches do with him.

Top defenders yet to be set in stone. Could easily be trading in another problem if trade in a defender with a relatively unproven record. I have him…..not sure what i'll do yet. His B/E may be the deciding factor.

SideBySidebottom

If we hold Newnes at D6 and he is our last upgrade the result should be reasonable.

dognino

Newnes is a massive turd in my backline , second worst average of my 8 defenders, only in front of brown

Crowls

Geez I would love to have that problem mate. Unfortunately I have KK and Goodes in front of the line.

Tyler

Cripps with 11 handballs and 2 kicks at the half… Hopefully he can get a 70-80

dognino

Cripps already on 109 at 3/4 time

Pavos

Where do you find this out?

dognino

Live HQ, it's a $3 a week subscription to the advertiser/ herald sun

SideBySidebottom

If you subscribe to Foxtel you can get live SuperCoach scores.

Booma

How you get the live scores with foxtel subscription SBS??

SideBySidebottom

This would be a lot easier if I had a memory. I set this up two years ago so and I'm automatically logged in on the laptop and iPhone. Luckily my partner's iPad is a SuperCoach virgin (hehehehe) (she's glaring at me) so I'll go through the process and give instructions.

Type "live supercoach scores" into a search engine (in this case safari).
Select the third option "Fox Sports| SuperFooty Live HQ".
The home page has a red band with the following options" AFL | Latest News | Fixture | Teams | TV Shows | SC News| Live HQ | Ladder| Forum | Supercoach | Video | TV "
Select "Supercoach"
Under the " LOG IN" box tap on "become a member".
Scroll down to the two columns titled "Digital subscription" and "Foxtel Customer".
Tap the "Check Eligibilty" box.
Good Luck from there 🙂

Phew.

Ben

loving that i never traded cripps out round 1, like so many did

Josh

Yeah same
How good is it!!

TOM

Not sure who to VC and C out of this bunch. Using the VC loophole.

Swan, Fyfe, Beams, JPK, Selwood, Goldstein (only becuase versing Geelong who have no ruckman. My gut says VC on Swanny because he is a beast on ANZAC day but not sure who to put the C on if he fails.

Dustbin Feltchers

can someone explain how alex rance gets towelled up by the new Ox Hogan…but still manages 90 sc points?? 40 dt points??

dognino

Every one at champion data has him in their office league teams. Only explanation I can see

Dustbin Feltchers

yep..spot on dognino..cheers

@t_woof

Rort.

Charlesy

I mentioned this yesterday mate. 10 possessions at 80% means he got 90 for 8 possessions and 3 tackles. It’s rubbish

I N Pieman

Cripps tonnes up before 3/4 time. Lovely

Derek

How is Newnes going

dognino

Newnes 42 ! 3 mins into the last

anthonyc12

If you have Newnes (which I do), you would probably prefer to not know how he is going

dognino

I'm making a rule for 2016 now, don't listen to jock re saints players.

Marco_Polo94

ahahahahah

Marco_Polo94

newnes is a dilemma i really didn't want. I have enough problems elsewhere

Northernsoul74

Webster last year, Newnes this year. So many of us sucked in.

shezza

Stinks and must be in contention to be traded next week.he has tagged most, if not all weeks

Bog rat

Do I smell a rage trade ?

@t_woof

Bless him INP!

172, incredible.

Dingo

Want to trade Goodes and Kolo to Smith and a rookie but not sure what rookie to go. Thoughts please???

Mac

What about trade Kolo to Kelly (Geel) and hold Goodes to see how the defensive rookies look like after this round? Goodes wont lose money because he got dropped.

Tyler

Glad I loopholed Cripps

T.J

Kelly or Birchell for Kade Kolo

Scott

Birchall

Westy

If I had the E on Cripps before the game, and move Gray onto the field and move Heeney to the bench, will I get Cripps' points?

T.J

yes

shezza

Yes

Westy

Seems like a plan then!

@Rem_Wah

You will, absolutely

dognino

Will be interesting to see the scaling after the saints v blues, 30 secs left in the game and still just under 3000 points allocated so far, which should mean for some big up scaling

dognino

Cripps scaled from 150 up to 172. Massive

TheCompletePackage

What's the latest on Bontempelli. Will he play? Loop holing Gray and Hogan with Bont currently on the ground has me worried.

T.J

Cripps 150!!!!

Westy

Boom – must hurt for those people who traded him out in the first 3 weeks.

Derek

150 before scaling, I rekon 162 after scaling!

Vic City

I'm sorry I ever doubted you Crippsy!

T.J

Seems a fair few people have Kolo and are looking to trade him. Look at Kelly. He will run through the middle more since Jimmy has gone down and should average around 90. Anyone else agree?

Adsy

With conditions and everything the way they are in Melb at the moment, would it be wise to bring in a Watson or a Heppell into your side this week? Watson would like it contested, and at 570k and in only 7% of teams, would be worth it? Can he last out the season and be a keeper? (barring injury of course). Need to get rid of Wines, and tossing up whether to do it now or next week? Any tips from the pros?

FootyFanatic

Don't bring in a player who you think will go big just for this week, choose a player who you think will be a top 10 mid come seasons end

BundyBear

Watched a lot of people trade out Cripps the last few weeks . Glad i stuck with him

T.J

Will rain affect Swan's score?

Pavos

Yes but he will kill it

Pavos

Who should I chuck the VC on: Swan, Fyfe, Parker?

I N Pieman

CRIPPS 172. Wow

Ben

=(
im stuck with cripps and vanderberg on as my subs with no loop holes available

fml

nearly 300 points down the drain

Mike

Seriously!? LMAO. You put Cripps on the bench when he was playing Saints?
Got VanB on the bench myself and thought that was bad, but to have both would seriously hurt.
No doubt Heeney will score 35 and make us both cringe even more.

Brillsy21

Same :(((

dognino

I'll be taking lonies 84 too, keep lamb for another week and get another look at krak and Tarrant this week

SideBySidebottom

Tarrant's an injury bomb.

eatemalive

I have Vanders & Cripper ,my decision is do I go with NVB or Heeney on the field, I have a feeling that Heeney might get vested either before or during the game which will make my decision easier, but if he doesn't I'm leaning towards NVB anyway. Thoughts anyone ?

Luke

Heeney's a lock in their best 21, absolutely no chance of a sub, (unless an injury happens)

Michael

…and the SC gods strike again!

Mike

Surely Heeney won’t back up last week’s score. He needed 3 goals to score that much. He won’t kick 3 every week, but I sure hope I’m wrong. GO SWANS!

Totally crying I picked Savage for Goodes before last week. I guess this is why sideways trading midpricers is bad.

Brett

your spot on, though with goodes price & be , his more rookie priced grr ! feel your pain !!

Northernsoul74

If I could rage trade Newnes now I would. Sunday night he is gone.

Brett

*ruck epidemic*

after seeing wood & longer bust out massive scores, bellchambers looks like he should hit the scoreboard well…. its gotta be probably that mummy can go large or wishful thinking ?

mummy > goldy ?

eatemalive

I also have Maric who had 124 last night, I'm sticking with Mummy as its GWS v Suns.

Pitch

Newnes……. pfffft, sucked in bad :-(, thanklfully just about everyone else has him. just goes to show – never pick players from shite sides. (rookies and gaj aside).

Luke

I was one of the few people who traded out Cripps after rd1 when he was a late out. Given that he scored a 172 and that it will remain in his 3 round average for the next couple of rounds, would it be a good idea to trade him back in, as he will make plenty of cash now?
(He would be about 285-295k next week)

Pavos

Mate you got rid of him! You can’t burn 2 trades I’m sorry but you’ll have 2 suffer

Phil

It's a good question. There's every chance he could still make you 200k to justify the trade.

cow roll

That's justifiable

Spanghers and mash

Hi community, hope everyone’s having a good weekend.

I had Lonie(84points) as my emergency so should I loophole him with Gray and put Mitch Clark on my bench?

I personally can’t see Clark getting much more than 84

Mike

I’d take that score if I were you. I reckon Geelong will get done tomorrow.

Spanghers and mash

Yeah I think I'll take it. Thanks for the input mike.

Tulendeena

Oxley subbed out…

Pavos

The ox has been subbed off! Does anyone know what he got?

Baggy Pants

41 points i think, my back line has been hopeless this week so far

Pavos

Well that’s a point behind Mcintosh and also yet to be allocated.

Baggy Pants

The gift, Oxley, Newnes, McIntosh grand total 201

Pavos

I started saad so fingers crossed!

Luviboy1

Same boat mate….

SideBySidebottom

That's how it goes with rookies and mid priced players.

Crowls

cmon, I got 330 for the WHOLE backline yesterday and still scored 2139. This year I cannot get over 2150. Hopefully next week.

Tyler

Is seedsman in the pies best 22 now?

Pavos

Seeds man was out injury he’s been in our best 22 for years. (I’m a die hard pies supporter)

Northernsoul74

Yep,Seedsman is in their best 22 whenever he is fit. I guess a lot will be looking at Newnes to Seedsman trade.

SideBySidebottom

With Heritier Lumumba (translation: Prince of the dashing, high knees turnover) gone, Seedsman is the logical marking, line breaking, kick it to one of our guys replacement.

Tom

Who do i put the Captain on Fyfe or Sloane?

3. votes

trade or hold Will Minson? was dropped and not sure if he is a keeper

Luviboy1

Upgrade to Goldy if you dont have him. As for downgrading, someone like a Nic Nat could be a sound option, not too much down there though, wouldnt be going near the cheap ruck types ie. Smith, Blicavs, Grundy.

Dean

Not taking Swan's score, so I have a decision to make. Who to put the C on?

I have Fyfe, JPK, Parker, Selwood, Goldstein.

Someone help?

Luviboy1

Parker needs to go big one of these days. He was on the road to a 140 on his first match then he got crunched. I think hell go big tonight, but I don't have the plums to chuck the C on him. Safe option would be Fyfe or Selwood.

cow roll

Selwood. Weather is windy in Perth.

Jack

Swanny failed as a VC. Who should i trust with the C out of Sloane and Fyfe?

Nuggety

I reckon Sloan mate

Luviboy1

Im going with Sloane, purely due to the fact that I dont have Fyfe.

cow roll

It's cold and windy in the west. I think Fyfe might have a scrappy game. Sloane looks like the better C option or Goldy

Nuggety

For the v on Pendles with a score of 119. Take it or roll the dice? C options yet to play are fyfe and selwood….

Northernsoul74

Gamble

Nuggety

Yeah could be right opponent has the v on fyfe can afford to wait and see how he goes then punt on selwood if need be.

James

Captain Selwood, Fyfe or Sloane?

Jack

Should i captain Selwood or Fyfe?

Luviboy1

Fyfe.

Tyler

Selwood

Selwood plays very well in the wet and wind, while fyfe does well, but not as good as selwood usually

Tyler

Should I put the C on Buddy?

Tom

Not against Freo.

Winter

I have Vandenberg as an emergency on my bench who scored 109, so if i sub on Jed Anderson who isn't playing for Heeney i should get Vandenberg's points right?
And also if i make Heeney an emergency aswell who's points would be awarded? Because Anderson isn't playing

Wombat

Q1. Yes
Q2. Whoever scores LOWEST unless you need both in which case you get both scores

Winter

So you would suggest to take the emergency of Heeney because all my other midfielders are playing?

dannyyboyy

yes, because if heeney doesnt outscore vandenberg then u will get his points. if he does outscore him you will still only get vandenbergs points.

Dondeal

No way, keep emergency on Vandenberg and take the guaranteed 109. As good as he is I highly doubt Heeney is going outscore 109 against Freo. Big risk for arguably very little chance of reward.

dannyyboyy

yeah i meant take yes as in take it off heeney, i think i said it a bit confusingly tho

Winter

Captain Lewis or Fyfe?

Pitch

bloody grrrrrifen, spudding it up again, half way 2nd qtr 20pts, hopefully has an impact 2nd half, otherwise gonski!!!!

dognino

Just had a purple patch and on 45 now

@Blue5ive

Halfway through the 3rd Griffen on 87

Tom

finish with 110

Winter

Who would you put on the field out of Clark or Krakouer?

Derek

Clarke

3. votes

Hold Cockatoo or trade down to Krakour? I will use my 2 trades next week on newnes and maybe griffen so if going to pull trigger needs to be now and have 28 trades left

dannyyboyy

maybe pull the trigger with that, i have both newns and griff and i am considering dumping newns but im holding griff for a bit, i just dont think he is worth jumping off just yet. i hate wasting early sideways trades

im in the same boat with krak tho, i want to make the trade this week in case i need to make 2 moves next week and am still undecided

dannyyboyy

Should i go lamb for krak tonight or hold til next week?

dognino

I'm holding for now, was thinking about an early trade when Gray was omitted , but now that Lonie scored an 84 I'll take that to cover Gray and get one more look at krak and Tarrant , just to make sure they are named for their 3rd game

dannyyboyy

yeah your right im holding and taking lonies score.

sean

does newnes have to go this week?

Pavos

Im afraid so.

Newnes—->Brodie Smith

Tyler

if you dont have that much cash maybe newnes -> malcheski?

Luke

trading one under performing player for an even worse under performing player who's in arguably career worse form and no signs he'll turn it around.. interesting

SCaddict

Yes as much as we've tried to convince ourselves he'll come good there's no way he'll be anywhere near a top 6 defender this season and may not even make us any cash which is pretty disappointing given all the group think buzz in the preseason. He's certainly no David Swallow circa 2014 as many were hoping.

If Brodie Smith has another strong showing tomorrow then he firms heavily as the defensive premo of choice if he hasn't already. Hibbo also looks like he is finally finding some form if you want to save some coin although given the unreliable nature of defenders this season he's no sure thing either.

Mike

I was CONVINCED Hawks would flog Port tonight, was even thinking of putting money on for the win. Lucky I gave up gambling on sports.

I’d love to get rid of Bellchambers for Krak this week. But no ruck cover then.

Derek

Port weren’t celebrating to much after game. Hawks superior team.

carlashirley90

Griffen 113 Vc not taking that

Going with Beams as C
Others I could use is Goldy or Danger but I'm not sure now, Fyfe I was worried to use him as C but he started well lol

Hazey

Would you take Lonie’s 81 or risk it with Mitch Clark?

marcus

take the 81

@t_woof

If you would be happy with Mitch Clark scoring 81, then you should take it.

SCaddict

Cats could get badly rolled by the Roos which could spell trouble for Cats power forwards and their fantasy scores so I'd take Lonie's 81 without batting an eyelid.

Unfortunately I have to roll the dice on Clark myself so I'll have my fingers crossed that he can defy my lowish expectation.

dognino

Rage trade Parker to krakour, newnes to a premo defender. Bank some cash before they both drop below $400k .

SCaddict

I'm sure you won't be the Lone Ranger there mate. Both these guys are testing the very limits of our Supercoach sanity ha ha.

dognino

Hey SC are you addicts anonymous in the Choo 4 twenty Choo league?

SCaddict

Yeah that's me alright and my feeble score of 1941. It's a humbling game at times but at least there is always next week. 🙂

dognino

Sure is a humbling game. we actually just played each other, didn't realise it was you. It's an honour mate, been taking in your advice for the last 2 seasons .

I've cooled down a bit now, think I have to stick fat with Parker, otherwise I'd be making trades every week with under performers at the moment. I really want to get krak and Tarrant in tho, but only have lamb as an option to trade out.

What The Deuce!!

Parker's second half was fantastic. Hold fire. He's a premo for a reason and will definitely come good.

JB

Which rookie to trade OUT round 5:
Clark
Heaney
Nelson
NVB
McIntosh
N Brown

IN
Krakouer
Tarrant

Thoughts …

SCaddict

Reckon it's too early to harvest any of those guys. If you are really impatient then perhaps Heeney could go given that 7 will haunt his rolling average and immediate cash generation potential for the next 3 weeks.

However I'll be holding him as eventually he'll probably still make us at least $200K by the byes. He will just take a few more weeks than the other rookie cash cows to mature.

We don't know what rookies will be coming down the road so we really need to maximise the cash we get from the current crop because if you don't there will be plenty of other coaches who do.

the sprinkler

easy- heeney. he got injured and subbed out and relies on scoring goals for his points. to me thats not good enough.

Tulendeena

Looks like I'm forced to go TBC to krak just to get rid of stinking newnes T_T

Mike

Tring to resist exact same trades. I know the week I do, one of my rucks goes down.

SideBySidebottom

That's it.

Tom

Parker on 20 at HT

SCaddict

Go straight to an elite if you can. I jumped off him this week for Fyfe and obviously reasonably satisfied that I shelled out the extra $110K to make that happen.

If you go to another $500K type player there's too much risk of Parks coming good and your replacement disappointing.

But if you get a Fyfe/Jelwood/Sloane type you are unlikely to get yourself into too much trouble. If you don't have the cash then any of Kraks, Vanders or Cripps look great if you don't have any of these mandatory cash cows.

Tom

who to trade parker to?

Otherwise you may just have to hold firm with him and hope he starts pumping out those tons we all know he is capable of, preferably sooner rather than later.

Riley

Oxley subbed off.. Heeney scores 7… Supercoach Gods looking over us today ;(

Pavos

But Oxley Out scored Mcintosh.

Antonio

What should I do with Minson?

SCaddict

Think you have to trade him as who knows when he'll be back after getting dropped by Bevo. It's not like he set the Supercoach world on fire when he was playing so you would only likely lose cash on him whenever he gets back in the side anyway.

At this point in the weekend Goldy is the obvious answer (if you don't already have him) otherwise Blicavs could be worth considering as an interim move until the ruck waters eventually settle as they're still a little muddy right now.

Ethan

this is where you needed that bellchambers in the fwd line and swing your mason cox/tom read into the fwd line

Gold Rush

Mince Minson son!!!!

FootyFanatic

How on earth does Rioli out score Lewis when
Lewis gets 92 SC points – 20 handballs, 16 kicks, 8 marks, 4 tackles at 66% disposal efficiency
Rioli gets 96 SC points – 7 handballs, 9 kicks, 4 marks, 3 tackles and 2 goals at 62% disposal efficiency

And to rub it in even more Rance scores 90 SC off 10 disposals!?!?!?
Supercoach can be so frustrating at times

Hazey

It’s fair enough that there’s a little variation in the ‘worth’ of possessions, but it has started out a bit ridiculous this year with little obvious logic.

Lewis has been stiffed 2 wks in a row.

Dustbin Feltchers

yep..gives me the irits too..luke parker was on 20 at half time..lifts dramatically and gets his team back to a winning chance…gets 80 dt for 76 sc points…do contested possessions (10) count for nothing??!!!

carlashirley90

I have noticed that players this year who score well in 1st half ride the SC point train even if they go qiuet
But Rance ???????????????????? I ?????????????????? Dont ????????????????? Have ????????????????? A ??????????????? Clue

Vince the quince

I am quiting super coach as I have a dream team as well. There is to much cheating going on at champion data it's beyond a joke. Ablett 100+ in the first round prime example

Tony

Frankly, this is the elephant in the SuperCoach room: there is no independent verification of the scores – we all have to take Champion Data's numbers without being able to do the calculations to check. In a competition of this size and profile, that's ridiculous.

The problem is that they certainly miss things. Lewis was credited with no Score Assists last week, but he had at least one where he passed to a teammate who marked close to goal and goaled (and I only saw a bit over a quarter). The Rioli v Lewis one quoted above is a perfect example of why they should put out the full spreadsheet for it to be checked. It is beyond illogical to conclude that Cyril was more effective than Lewis today.

SCaddict

Yes although we may say that defenders and rucks are very fickle this season, nothing is more fickle than the SC secret squirrel scoring system. Each weekend it seems like there are way too many scores that leave one confounded and bewildered.

As flawed and as basic as the Real Dream Team scoring system is at least it's clear for all to validate and verify.

Derek

Even though Port and Freo got the 4 points tonight, I think I know who the best two teams are.

carlashirley90

Okay serious question take Griffens 113
Or
Roll the dice on Beams, Danger or Goldy?

My Vc threshold is 120 so am thinking 113 is good enough with so many promo's scoring low this week so far.

Donavan

I think is a choice of 2.

Take the 113 or put the captaincy on Goldy. I wouldn't trust Danger or Beams to out-score 113.

Luke

Answered your own question, if your threshold is 120, don't take anything under it. Out of the three, i'd pick Danger, could dominate against the doggies who don't really tag and should be an easy win for Adel

Juzzy

Goldy monstered the Lions against Stef Martin and Leuenberger.
What might he do against the Cats poor rucks ??

Pavos

Whip it on Goldy, Blicavs won't have a chance.

dannyyboyy

yeah id go danger or goldy, my cap score cutoff is 130, i like to roll the dice with my skipper and it usually pays off

Matt

Absolute carnage in my squad. Shaw, Lumumba, Parker, Mcintosh, Neale. 1160 from 14. Still have Beams, Rich, Taylor, Sloane, Walker, Clarke, Goldy and CEY. Who to chuck C on?

Luke

Sloane without a doubt!

Matt

Soundest option ay.

TOPHAWK1

Whack it on Mr consistent Sloane. He is my C. Very confident he will deliver the chocolates against the dogs today.

Mike

Bartel f****d me last week, Heeney did it to me this week. Was looking good for a league win before I checked his 7!
It’s prob my punishment for turning off the game when the Swans were down about 50-8 in the second. I just got too mad Mitchell wasn’t playing.

Steve

I STILL have jimmy bartel in my fwd line and need to trade this week to avoid a donut, I want to get a top 6 forward in that is playing tomorrow? I have enough money to get anyone in, who should i get in that will play tomorrow out of Boomer Harvey, Zorko the Magnificent, The Bont or Dahlhaus?

Tyler

I like Dalhaus and Zorko here. I think Zorko is a bit of a better choice but he spuds it up every once in a while

I N Pieman

Those with Cripps on field Heeney on the pine & Fyfe with the vc stand as one & fist pump like never before! Yeah baby!

SCaddict

Sounds like someone without any Sunday players otherwise it might be a little foolhardy to provoke the Supercoach gods like that mid round. 🙂

B-T

F**k yes and Vandy loop

shezza

That is me. My bench for mids are: Anderson, Lambert (both not playing) and Heeney – emg.

I have: Sloane,

Tyler

1971 with Smith, Goldy, Clark and CEY to play

carlashirley90

Had Vc on Griffen if he had a good start whoa! But alas 113
Had Cripps and Vandenburg on field Heeney on bench
Got CEY to play in guts still with Danger and Beams
Higgens, Smith and J.Kelly down back
Naitinui and Goldy
Zorko and Clarke

On 1159 from 12 captain still to play or take Griffs score….

B-T

113 could sway me to take a punt

Ben

Cripps, Vandenburg and Hogan on the field, fyfe bringing some 145 love, with heppel as VC =)

looking good with
Bont
Beams
Zorko
Selwood
Sloan
Motlop and Nic Nat to go

Ryan

In the same boat as you, Heppell bringing the goods this season 😀

Ethan

Another sub par peformance by parker, there were a few good signs from him in the second half but he's still far from his best. what should we do, is a trade neccisary to stop that cash loss?

I got rid him prior to the round for Fyfe partly because I was anticipating another substandard score @ Freo and partly because Fyfe is a must have I mistakenly didn't start with.

It was bit of a sliding doors moment in round 1 when Parks got KOd by Buddy on 35 touches at 3QTR time and ever since then he has lost the polish in his game.

Eventually he will come good, I have no doubt, it's just a case of how long and how much rankings pain you can tolerate between now and then. One positive is at least the Swans draw is pretty decent now right up to the byes and that he had a solid second half tonight.

I nearly got rid of him this round but after this week the Swans have a good draw so I hung on to him. For those who traded him this week it might be a win, but after that it's win, win, win for the those that hang on to him.

I have itchy ball sack..shall I scratch them or teabag the Mrs.

dannyyboyy

when in a situation like this think, what would crouching one do? dunk away son!

Juzzy

Cripps might be the new set and forget captain until GAJ gets back 🙂
Funny how things change ….

Rick Grimes

Think I can hit 2300 which should be a solid score. Lucked out with Cripps on field and Heeney off. Ibbottson even came to the party. Parker is marked for attention this week.

@t_woof

Nice one Rick!!!

Wheels

I traded out MINSON and brought in LOBBE for a POD.
LOBBE got 61

Kill me now

Pnorkle900 was in top 3%. dunno after this horrid round. SC gods still bringing death and destruction since the fallen elder god has been killed (ablett)

Dean

Stuffed up the loophole so can't get Fyfe's score. Who to put it on now? Selwood, Beams, Goldy?

Rick Grimes

Selwood

SideBySidebottom

Goldstein.

Newnes. Shaw. Neale. WHAT HAPPENED??? Newnes was used in a tagging role, so that’s not good for future scoring, and I didn’t see the gws or freo matches, so if someone could shed some light on those two that would be great. I’m experiencing some deja vu, as last week I traded in Dylan Shiel only for him to score 52, but then he responded this round with 140. Fingers crossed the same happens with Neale next week (I traded him in this round).

Anyway, I had the VC on Dane Swan, who scored only 91, and I HAD the C on Fyfe only to take it off him just before his match. And then he scores 145. I have Rich, Clark, Selwood, Goldstein, Higgins and CEY to play, so who should I put as captain? I don’t really trust Clark, Higgins or CEY to outscore 91 and I don’t think Rick’s ceiling is as high as you’d want from a captain, so it’s out of Selwood and Goldstein. Who should I choose?

Mike

Goldy. Selwood will be knackered after his effort last week, Goldy will have a tap fest against the Cats and North will win.

TOPHAWK1

Take a punt and whack it on Goldy. If he feels good today against the cats he will run riot.. Geelong have serious ruckman issues. Blicavs is more an on baller than a ruckman. Rhys Stanley is probably their main ruck option and he was pretty ordinary against the Gold Coast last week.

The safe option is oviously Selwood. Goldy could pump out 160 today. Its risk vs reward here.

Your call!

Cheers

Frank

Agree with Tophawk… Goldy's average playing down at Geelong is very low but he doesn't have great opposition today. He could score anywhere between 80-160. Selwood will get attention but he is Joel Selwood so 100-140 you would expect. Tough call really. Good luck.

Ethan

neale just didnt get into it. that 170 last round was due to him playing a weak midfield. so against sydney, he kinda struggled to match hannerbry,jack,jpk
Shaw didnt see much of the ball cause it would never come to him. Gold coast were that rubbish.
Newnes hold another week, we're nto sure of his role atm. if he's tagging then he needs a up/downgrade. if not then hold

TOPHAWK1

I was not going to use any trades this week but I was forced to make one trade at the last minute last night.

As this round has progressed I have realised that my backline needs some serious work this week. I had Tom Lamb in my forward line which I needed to fix as well. As I need 2 trades this week for corrections to my backline, This forced my hand to fix the Lamb problem last night.
Lamb: out
Krakouer: in
Then moved krakouer to the mid with gray moving back forward and on the field. This still enabled me to secure Hogan's points as he was on my bench as an emergency.

Krakouer comes out and scores 82 SC points.

Now I can concentrate on getting a viable replacement for that Snapperhead Newnes. He was sheit again yesterday and he has to go. Any suggestions for a good double defensive trade? Nathan Brown and Newnes have to go this week.

Cheers

Leighroy

Hi community need some advise.

I’m currently going to get a 0 in the forward line. Was going to trade lamb to krackour but after leaving the footy yesterday and going out to dinner just missed getting the trade done.

Was now thinking lamb to tarrant and Anderson to krackour next week.

I don’t have the cash to go straight from lamb to tarrant but will if I also trade goods to Andrews from brisbane.

Not sure on his job security and haven’t seen him play.

Any advise??

Ethan

with leuy back im not sure if andrews will come back to feature after round 4. Watch closely in today's game to see if he has an impact.

TOPHAWK1

Concerned about Harris Andrews. Still very early days for him. I would definately want to see what he does today before even considering to trade him in. No problem with Lamb to Tarrant, but if you do not have enough cash to make this one switch, then for the sake of potentially wasting a trade it might be worth wearing a donut mate.

Hope this helps.

Jdogg

I am a lions supporter and can tell you Andrews is only a stop gap. We will have Clay back in two and there are a few others in the 2nds right alongside him. No JS for mine

Joey Joe Joe

Not sure about that – I think Harris is replacing Close in the KPP forward role. Given Close is out for the season, may be better JS than you think. Lions season is a stinker, so Leppa will probably want to continue blooding the kids as well

SCaddict

There is an undeniable risk in picking Tarrant this round on the back of just one game. He wasn't in the Kangas 22 for the first couple of games which had me scratching my head given how good a preseason he had.

However if he has another decent game today you'd have to think he'd solidify a spot in their side at least in the short term.

No question Kraks would've been the better choice but Tarrant could prove worth the risk especially if you are facing an onfield donut this weekend.

SideBySidebottom

The issue with Tarrant is his propensity to suffer injury rather than ability.

Ethan

If you got cash in the bank, definitly upgrade newnes to a fallen premium

Pavos

Taylor Walker is going to get 170 I can just feel it.

Walker is playing at Etihad where he averages 110, against Jordan Roughead the young defender who let Jarryd roughpill kick 7. Etihad will have it's roof up so no wind or rain and With Danger and Sloane getting 40 touches a piece (while smashing Liam Picken), it will make it a blow out to Adelaide and the delivery to Tex will be great. Walker price will be at 480k if he gets a captains knock of about 160+.

So why am I writing all this because Dustin Martins BE will be sitting at 110-120 these coming weeks and I suspect his price will bottom out at 490k, therefore a 10k warchest will mean the stepping stone is complete and you will reap the rewards of Dusty 2nd half of the year.

Significant? I think yes community.

Cheers, PAVOS

Matt

I absolutely love your thinking. I too reckon Tex will belt out a 160 which is why Im having dilemmas as who to set as Captain. Him or Sloane? Im also going to jump on Dusty once he drops to sub 500.

Bontemgasmic

Dusty's price is going north not south

current 3 week average is 111 which is higher than his current price

BundyBear

Taylor has had his big score for the year. kennedy will kick 13

Brillsy21

Lol Tex Walker 170
