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 πŸ™

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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.
