PODCAST: Stick to your structures

Published by Jock on

Supercoach 2015Robust constitutions.

That’s what we require community as we focus with laser like precision on building a team full of top end premiums as quickly as we possibly can.
And that takes discipline. That takes patience. That means at times letting a bloke who is soiling the underpant of your team STAY in your team while you attend to the priority of building a robust structure.
Enjoy the show folks.
  • Thanks to Trent from Sheeva’s Spartans for joining to chat about his ball breaking season – 20th overall before round 5 now hanging in there at 37th. Here he is on the twitter: https://twitter.com/rangarangdo

Ryan

Hey community, have 410k in the bank, thinking Bellchambers to ryder, keeps the ruck cover intact and has looked good with lobbe playing. And Walters from freo to ziebell who is now 389k. Averaging 100 if you take the 4 out of his scores. Good trades or ziebell too much of a risk? Thanks guys

jack

I like the ziebell one , only the one bad score due to him being a idiot

Swans2012

I like Ziebell, not sold on the Ryder trade only because it seems a fairly big spend for a relatively minor increase in point scoring potential…
Belch to average 70-80, Ryder 90-100.

Just_Genetics

i say still with bell till after the bye rounds as in the third bye round wce nm port and gws the home of some of the best rucks in the comp are on a bye

Jackybluch

What to do with Judd ? Keep or trade?

Bye Week

hold him

zeesus

I have had Ziebell in the past. He is pretty consistent with his 80-90 scores. You are simplifying things by removing his score of 4. If you break it down he has actually scored: 89, 80, 4, 150 and 82.
Yes he will have some big games but they will be few and far between. You will get 80s from this bloke. And he is priced accordingly.

Swans2012

80-90 with the occasional big one may still = 100 which is a win.

zeesus

For a midfielder? You honestly believe you can find better.

demon

not the mention the niggling injuries and suspensions, I'd stay clear

Swans2012

For a mid fwd future f7/m9 loophole @ 390k with the ability to go 150. Wouldn’t consider as a mid but as a fwd 100 is likely top 8 by year end. That’s IF he averages 100, which my gut says he might

Swans2012

I think your forgetting he’s mid fwd this year

Ryan

Yeah, as a fwd i forgot to mention

Brad

My team is f*****! Bring on next year

I’m sick of underperformance promos!

KJU FC

Rockliff priced at $579k with a BE of 290…

boy oh boy woweeee

Ryan

Looking like he could drop to 450k

Swans2012

Might be able to downgrade Cripps to Rockliff in a fortnight!

Just_Genetics

thats the plan!

Spifflicator

Will drop another $200k over 3 games!

@t_woof

No worries BT.

@thecowza

Dropped 130k that has to be a supercoach record?

tom

should I upgrade Mcintosh to Enright or someone else under 500k or sideways Griffen to the Bont?

Dylan

You should still be able to earn some coin from McIntosh, while I would expect Enright to come down a little. Try to hold a couple of weeks, but take a look at the break evens and make a call from there

Just_Genetics

id wait till next week to trade griffen out as both rockliff and sloan are set to drop and could do a sideways trade for one of them

Wheels1987

hold on the DEF line upgrades.
money to be made elsewhere

Harrison

25 trades 120,700 cash. Carnage round. Current rank 10,841. Only scared 2196
Duds: shaw, saad, oxley, fyfe, pendles, CEY, gray, vandenberg, cripps, miller, goldstein, nicnat, martin, tarrant bont, lonie, swan
Spuds: smith, simpson, newnes, lewis, griffen, krak, hogan, salem
Injuries: Smith (is he injured?) wallis, lewis (not injured i know but geez wizz i expect 4), Salem (?? subbed), Clark
Holding the premos, starting to upgrade rookies soon
Hahahah "i need a premo"

Poloko48

Doing a lot better than most Harry old son – 2196 is a decent enough score. Good ranking this early too.
Interested in some of your spuds – a few rookies there, can't expect gold every week from them, they are there to make you $$$, a big score is simply a bonus. Good luck!

Harrison

thanks Poloko48, i agree with you about the spuds. Yes im asking too much from those melbourne boys against freo. Does anyone know when Wallis will be back have been holding him. Is salem injured? How many weeks will Lewis get? soo many questions to be answered

Just_Genetics

wallis should be back in 2 weeks salem is not injured and lewis should get 3 + weeks

Robert

Hey community!

Quick question.

I have 240k in the bank and would like to get rid of Griffen, Kade simpson or Newnes

In my opinion i think they are under preforming plus a big BE.

Would like to try and get Fyfe or Pendels in.

Any suggestions?

Ryan

Griffine to pendles/fyfe for mine, defenders too unpredictable at the minute

Ethan

simmo would/could be the top 8 defenders in the this season

Spifflicator

He looked awful on Friday, I would stay away from him for now.

BT

don't trade griffen unless is to pendles or fyfe, maybe wait for rockliff.
Keep simpson and newnes, high chance they'll outscore whoever you bring in for them

Just_Genetics

id say keep all till next week unless it is to fyfe or pendles – as next week sload is set to drop and so is rockliff could be a sideways trade to either of them

Wheels1987

HOLD ALL
find another way to get pendles and fyfe, even if you have to wait

Pumper

Trade Salem for either Mckenzie orGlenn from GC who scored over 100 in his first game
then Trade either Hogan or Clark to Barlow?

Ryan

the rule is wait till the rookies are on the bubble, but if you're confident they will keep a spot in the team and a productive role, by all means trade in Glenn. Think he will be a popular selection next week

BT

with gold coast's injury list, glenn should atleast play until the bye, big bodied tough player, what gc need

Wheels1987

right now i would be looking at McKenzie.
Hold one more week on Glenn. McKenzie has more job security then Glenn

In a perfect world you would be holding on both until they play 2 games but for cash generation and Salems bigger BE i would go McKenzie

Bob

What team does McKenzie play for?

Wheels1987

St.Kilda

@themisfitsSC

mcintosh 100 first round remember, just hold on glenn

Dee

Agreed….

tom

do we trade griffen?

Ryan

I'm starting to think maybe we do

judd0

Did you listen to the podcast?

Just_Genetics

the podcast isnt always right

Just_Genetics

id say wait on him till next week when sloan and rock drop

jacob

I’m pulling the trigger on Griff to pendled this week. I’ve persevered with Griff for the past 2 seasons and I’m sick of what appears to be a lack of effort. Don’t think he’s worth holding onto.

Wheels1987

no

PreviouslyOnLost

needed a bit more from salem and a bit less from robbie gray… only about 10k shy of the straight swap 🙁

judd0

Should be able to get in next week as long as gray doesn't go over 120.

Nicholas

Hey Community,
Thinking of newnes to a rokkie and griffen to pendle is this a good move community and which rookie would i bring in. I currently have 50k in the bank.

Nicholas

instead of pendle i could even go mundy or thompson. Thoughts?

Ryan

Mckenzie from saints debuted today, looked ok, would like to see him play again before bringing him in though

TOPHAWK1

Ahhhh I like him…Wecome!!

A def/mid swinger is gold running into the byes.

Nicholas

Ok thanks jock

Wheels1987

hold newnes

Brilksy21

Who to trade Lewis to. Already have Pendels, Fyfe, Parker as premos in the guts

Ryan

Hannebery looking very good mate

Mark

I was considering Hannebery very strongly in the pre season. Went with wines instead (FMSC). I'd get on him straight away. Hes looking very nice.

Traderlyf

liking ebert

Canny the Manny

JPK

Just_Genetics

id try hold him for 1 round if i could to get sloan in next week when he drops another 40k

Wheels1987

hold Lewis if you can

Tofor

Hold Lewis. Only 2 weeks, and should score well enough on return to be a keeper.

tom

Harry Taylor, Corey Enright or Grant Birchall?

looking to bring one of these three into my team.

do we think they will be in the top 8 defenders come end of the year?

midzy

birchall

Poloko48

Have had him from the start – the way def has been this year you need your tried and true locked in.

Redgumwon

Enright or Taylor

BT

flip a coin, to early to tell

shake n bake

Birchall

Wheels1987

I have TAYLOR
he is a gun

but upgrade FWD and DEF lines 1st

noob

Have a few problems with the team. I believe it is to late to ditch lumumba, newnes and parker so i'm unfortunately going to keep them. Depending on injuries i'm going to be trading out some rookies.

NVB went down in $$$ this week he needs to go. Also Ben Newton looks done. Have 400k in the bank.

current midfield looks like this… Fyfe, Sloane, Beams, Parker, Steven, CEY, Krak, Vandenberg, (Heeney, newton, NVB)

Also have 26 trades left.

Cheers community.

Ryan

Nvb to pendles looks like a good move

Derek

Pendbury, get him in now

SideBySidebottom

It's never too late to ditch Lumumba.

Wheels1987

n00b
bring in Pendles and McKenzie
for NVB and Newton

Caz

Hi community, I have both sloane and lewis do I trade one of these 2 and bench the other as I want to get rid of griffin or keep both and use rookies as coverage. Please help.

Ryan

3 or more weeks and I'd get rid of Lewis, wait and see with sloanes injury

TOPHAWK1

Sleep on it.

We will know more next week.

Griffin is the guy that is holding teams back IMO.

He is OUT

Caz

I agree griffin is killing me.

Wheels1987

hold both

Jamie

Slipped down to 119 overall which was a bit disappointing. Had 2227 this week with a couple of wrong selections on the field and Sloane cost me a 2300+ score.

Have Hodge as well and will most likely hold as I'm guessing 2-3 weeks?

Am thinking of bringing in some premiums this week in Bob Murphy for Goodes (so I have coverage for Hodge) and Rich for Mundy as he just isn't scoring anymore.

Hopefully can get back into the top 100 next week!

Cheers Jock

Jamie

A brain fade that I'm confident will never happen again, and he's far too good to get rid of.

Getting to the fun part of the season now!

Derek

Swallow was concussed by stratton’s hit.

Hodge might get 1 week, same Lewis

Girdle

One week each? You having a laugh?

Mitch

Should be 1 each but knowing what footy is like these days..

Wheels1987

hodgy is gone
but hold if possible
DEF line is as reliable as a woman telling ya she will be ready in 5 minutes.
Use rookies as bench cover for Hodge. any more than 3 weeks suspension get him out

Danners16

Great stuff Jamie! In your position, I probably wouldn't fall for the Mundy trap. Could save yourself some cash by going to a Priddis, Dangerfield, JPK who are proven cheap premiums. If you want a POD Steven and B.Ellis could provide you with some value.

Davo

Can you explain the term POD

Charlesy

Point of difference mate

Jamie

I've heard people say Mundy is a smokey for the Brownlow this year. You don't think he can keep it up?

Wheels1987

yes
he has always been really good but almost too consistant, never breaking a 110+ point game
has taken it up a level this season.
problem is when he plays well, so does FYFE so l would be holding my bets. if FYFE gets suspended then i will be betting on Mundy

Connor

G’Day All,

I know it’s a straight swap but should I go:

J. Newnes > T. McDonald

Or I can Upgrade/Downgrade. Pure and simple, I am not happy with his performance…

Thoughts?

Danners16

The trade I did last week, I did my research and it is a good trade. I believe he can be a premo this season

BT

current form yes, however very risky, mcdonald surely can't maintain a 110 average, where newnes can't be any worse and has to improve

Wheels1987

sideways trade
avoid

@dimSIMpson

2014 Average;
Kicks: 11.1
Handballs: 8.7
Disp. 19.9
Marks: 5.5
Tackles: 3.8
Frees against: 1.0

2015
Kicks: 11
Handballs: 8.4
Disp: 19.4
Marks 6.6
Tackles: 3.0
Frees against: 2.4

Easy to see the frees against are the difference between last year and this year. He'll only cost you another 25k before he bottoms out in the next few weeks. Bit more discipline (coach will get stuck in) and his disposals back up to 85-90 (Like Sunday) you'll see him scoring what we were hoping. No real downside now! Might as well see if he improves to the byes?

dejong

heeny and rich out, in comes JPK and some rookie(average of 103) forget his name
now got 16 keepers, dependiong on injury

Danners16

Wait a week on JPK

Sarah

Why wait? JPK's BE is only 104. He shouldn't drop much, if at all! The game is about points, not just money. For the sake of maybe $5k if he scores only 90… I'd get him in… and am getting him in this week!

BT

solid, perfect time to get JPK

Wheels1987

Your talking about Glenn from Gold Coast.
JPK good pickup
Hold Heeney if you can, maybe swap out Salem instead, Heeney still got coin to make

mcleal10

Who's the captain for loophole this week folks? Might go Goldy again or Pendles

BT

pendles is a genuine captain option, goldy isn't

Rawkus11

Pendles for sure!

Poloko48

Only 1 trade this week – Lamb to Mundy via MID/FWD swing with Krak.
In only 4% of teams could be a good POD to Fyfe, he's only averaging just under 5pts less per game but is $64.6K cheaper.
BE of 93 means he will only keep going up in price, currently #2 ranked overall behind Fyfe.
Have never really considered him in the past but it seems like this is his year.
What do you all think?

Harrison

Havent looked much into Mundy but gee wizz he looks good atm. Not sure what role he is playing you'll have to ask freo supporters. Im not sure he can keep it up be he is a very god POD. i like your thinking

Derek

He is over-achieving. I doubt he will keep it going.

If you are thinking about Mundy, it means you haven’t been tormented by Ross Lyon.

I could see the glint in Ross’s eye today, he is 5-0 and already thinking about resting his gun players. Beware with all Freo players

Danners16

Too much for Mundy, if he is not going to be your captain, take a look at Jack Steven if you don't have him. $100k cheaper, only gone under 100 once so far

Wheels1987

just be aware that there is ALOT of falling premos
If you have SC GOld go to the market watch and see who is cold.
Mundy is awesome, but so is value

Damian

This is such a noob question, but how do you trade Lamb who doesn't have DPP eligibility, for a MID via a single trade?

Scott

Trade out Lamb and switch a DPP Mid/Fwd into your fwd line, then trade in a mid.

Damian

Never mind. Found out via the help:

DUAL POSITION PLAYER TRADES – You'll now have more flexibility with how you trade, by being able to move dual position players within your team during the trading process – without having to have a 'matching' dual position player in the other position. For example, you may:
a) elect to trade out a Forward who is not a dual position player.
b) If you have a Defender who is also a Forward, you may substitute them into the Forward spot left vacant by the player you elected to trade out.
c) You'll now have a vacant Defender spot on your team.
d) In effect, you are therefore trading out a Forward for trading in a Defender.

Thanks for the suggestion and making me look into it.

Derek

With so many rookies still fattening, do we wait until they are plump, or do we go early on some of them?

Fallen premiums, who are at their bottom this week?

Goddard looks at low point, who else?

Derek

Won’t have enough trades (only two each week) to sell cash cows and get fallen premiums. I’m thinking players with a big war best will have a big advantage over the next 3 or 4 weeks as premiums hit their low prices

Swans2012

I think it’s a year for aggressive trading. Especially with Rockliff now almost a free hit top 8 mid

Swans2012

looking at Ziebell for Salem this week, will be f5 for now but eventually m9f7 loophole fodder. At $390k is cheap!

Ryan

I'm bringing him in for Walters, will only cost me 23k for a guy who, apart from the 4, is averaging 100

judd0

I think I'll double downgrade next week if Glenn and Mackenzie play there 2nd game and are named for there third.
Probably trade out Salem and Mcintosh.

Wheels1987

Salem is a def out this week.

the rest i would hold for another week

Josh

Newnes to Mckenzie then Vandenberg to Pendlebury?

Danners16

Good trade

BT

hold on mckenzie, wait atleast another week, poor j/s and sub risk

Swans2012

Hold on vandy, scoring well and more $$$ to make

Jess

Are there any downgrade targets at all this week community? With some DPP's I can downgrade anywhere.

Traderlyf

yeahh id like to know whos on the bubble

Danners16

Glenn, McKenzie, Boekhorst, Hams, Webb, Karnezis, Kelly, McInnes are all good cheap options

Cozza

Not a whole lot this week that you probably haven't already got in your teams. Lowest BEs this week are:
Tarrant -55
Cripps -37
Webb -36
Lonie -31
Krakour -30
Picken -26
T Miller -26
N Brown -20
McInnes -16
M Clark -13
Duggan -12
J Kelly -10

McInnes is the only one of these that has only played 2 games – prices at $123,900 with avg of 45. A couple of good rookie could be up next week though – J Glenn scored 103 and is priced at $120k, McKenzie scored 63 and is $117k

BT

no viable downgrades

Poloko48

Priddis might be the one this week, BE 109 av 96 $535.2K (-$71K)
Or JPK, BE 104 av 108 $547.1K (-$65K)
Mundy still cheap for his average, BE of 93 av 126 $593.2K
Selwood, Beams, Ward, Nathan Jones, Boomer, Parker in a few weeks will be ripe.
Barlow might be a nice POD although it looks like Neale, Fyfe & Mundy are taking some of his points away.

BT

I'm personally getting JPK this week.
I started with Priddis last season but don't think i'll go near him this year.
I rate Mundy but think its to late to get on him, most likely finishing the year averaging 105-110 and completely unrealistic for him to keep up a 126 average.
Barlow playing a lot less in centre bounces and more of a half forward role and once Rockliff returns to form,
Beams could be a nice upgrade target. S
elwood, Parker are good, Boomer and Ward probably not.

hope that helps

Girdle

I’m with BT, ship has sailed on Mundy. He has his good streaks but always ends up around a 105 avg. Would rather look at a fallen premo like JPK or Dangerfield if you want one this week. Nathan Jones can’t stay down for too long either, usually comes good

Simo

Gday community….midfield was a train wreck this week. My backs outshone most of them.
Currently have Fyfe, Sloanne, Lewis, Parker, Griffen and the usual rookies most people have. Any suggestions???…Lewis could cause a few headaches pending how many weeks he gets…..Parker and Griffen are starting to wear a little thin

Traderlyf

i think youd have to hold on most of them, theyve lost too much money to trade out and we can only hope they hit form soon… im in the same vote

chris

thoughts on these trades

griffen to JPK
salem to goddard

Danners16

Good, could wait a week on JPK

BT

got a b/e of 104, probably won't go down anymore

min0008

Trading Van Berlo to Josh Glenn and Salem to Goddard

Simo

Had Glenn on my watchlist this week…scored well anyone see the game…what role did he play???

TOPHAWK1

Hi community,

Flog 1- Griffin (Too much baggage)
Flog 2- Newnes (Too much expectation)
Flog 3- Walker (Too much pressure as captain)

Danners16

Cull 2, 3 Griffen doesn't necessarily need to come out yet and he has the most 100s out of the three of them

Youngster

I have all these of these blokes and this week it's Walker to JPK when I swing Gray back into the FWD line. The way I see it, Tex needs to be emergency loopholed because he's all over the place and no certainty to outscore some of my rookies and is definitely not a top 6 forward this year (I don't care how high his ceiling is). And wouldn't it be good to trade Griffen to a real performer… but I can't justify the trade at this stage.

James

Is stefan Martin a viable option?
If not who do the community reckon will be the top 2 rucks this year?

Danners16

He would be a good option. Could be him and Goldstein as the two top rucks

BT

is leunberger stays out of the team, he'll probably be the best ruck

Traderlyf

Option 1-
Bellchambers -> S Martin
Salem -> Mccines

Option 2 –
Salem -> Mcinnes
Sheed -> Pendles

BT

option 2, but is McInnes really a good downgrade option???

Traderlyf

could put krak up forward and get josh glenn but dont want to trade him in until his 3rd game

BT

if Mcinnis is a key forward (i think, don't follow West Coast), Glenn would comfortably outscore him and has pretty good JS given Gold Coast's injury list. Safer to wait a week. Salem won't lose money this week and if he does;t play, he'll be a good loophole option.

Traderlyf

yeah good point, cheers

Chefs Arsse fc

Did I read that correctly?? We need to get the premis in as quickly as possible but we require patience???

SideBySidebottom

Upgrade rookies that have peaked in price to premiums as quickly as possible but be patient with under performing premiums already in your team,

Big Boy McEvoy

PSA: Everyone knows that Rockliff will be cheap as chips in a month or so, but keep an eye on Stevie J. In a few weeks trading Ellis-Yolmen and Cripps to Rockliff and Stevie J should end up in making money. Worst comes to worst, would be a pretty handy M9 if his form doesn't turn around.

derek

Steven Johnson is not a top 10 mid fielder anymore.

mcleal10

Doesn't have to be. If his price reaches near 400k, he could easily jump in price from a couple of good scores. Going from a immature rookie to a proven player in SJ for a cheap transfer is decent. Sometimes it's better to go with risks and achieve those POD players coming into byes.

Wheels1987

oh boy oh wow wee

Ethan

Salem To Goddard or Dalhhaus
or should i wait later cause it uses up all the war chest money

AMERICANMAGPIE1

That's tough? Goddard has the DPP is probably why i would go with him.

Davo

What’s DPP mean anyone?

Ryan

Dual position Player, can play in fwd line or mid, comes in handy when trading

Girdle

On what we’ve seen till now, I’d go with Dahlhaus. Seems to finally have some consistency about him. Think he’ll finish ahead of Goddard on points this year.

@dimSIMpson

Look at Goddard's career, Averaged 100+ EVERY YEAR (bar #2, hampered by injury).

Go with what you know.

Girdle

Like most coaches I’ve had Goddard in just about every season (including last year as MID only). Right now though, I have Dahlhaus ahead of him. He has profited most from Griffen’s departure and Libba’s absence. Looking at the Dogs fixture, it also opens up nicely for them. Can’t see why Dahlhaus can’t continue on. Man’s entitled to his opinion.

SideBySidebottom

Dahlhaus is reflective of the Bulldogs early performances, If you think the team can continue to perform at this level then lock him in.

Girdle

It’s not uncommon for a young team like this to exceed expectations. When Hinkley took over at Port, no one expected much there. Two years later, they’re a big chance to finish top four. Bulldogs are this year’s surprise team.

Traderlyf

would salem to picken (via krak) but worth the trade? picken is sky rocketing in price and could even be a M8 at the end of the year plus a POD

Traderlyf

wait picken is defence…

Swans2012

I haven’t looked at him until now but certainly looks viable on his last two games which have seen a rocket up in possessions and score. Has he been let loose in the middle or something? Can someone fill in the gaps? Maybe playing Mitch Wallis role while he is out?

Girdle

Had a couple “spike” games, don’t get sucked in there.

mcleal10

Whos the best forward option for upgrade? Im heavily contemplating going to Dahlhaus or Franklin. Who else?

Traderlyf

im guessing you have gray, swan, martin

derek

I'm going with goddard

@dimSIMpson

G.O.D.D.A.R.D.

Antonio

What to do with Minson?

Traderlyf

downgrade to grundy/blicavs?

judd0

I'm in the same boat and I'm quite torn.
Don't know whether to do what Traderlyf suggested or not

Wheels1987

i traded him to Lobbe 2 weeks ago
would have been better to hold and take the donut.
FML

Scott

I traded him to Grundy last week, wait for the teams and keep him if he gets picked, I don't know how he went in the VFL, but I do know that Cordy got subbed

Peter

What's everyone's thoughts, Salem up to Benell or Goddard?

derek

Salem to goddard is my trade this week

Alex

Both the Josh Kennedys have the exact same score.

Jack

Newnes is done. He's no good! Who is the best bet in defence? T.McDonald, Bob Murphy, Rance, Hooker or Houli (POD)?

AMERICANMAGPIE1

I dumped Newnes for Houli

AMERICANMAGPIE1

I already have Murphy

BT

sounds like your chasing points

Juzzy

Newnes scored 72. He can stay for the moment.
I can't see anyone obvious to dump him for. I hope to upgrade my backline starting with the rookies up.
If you are hellbent on trading him check out Harry Taylor.

Girdle

You people picked a player with an 81 avg from last year. He scored 72 on the weekend, is that so bad? He’s talked about as if he starred with a 110+ avg last season. Deal with any underperforming rookies first. Backline is unpredictable anyway, which reliable scorer simply has to come in for Newnes?

derek

he didn't play that bad. He had a quiet last term. holding until the byes.

Mike

Savage has been way worse. He’s out!
I got Savage about 4 weeks ago, he had a 5 game average (including end of last year) of about 93. Since I got him his average be lucky to hit 60 culminating in last week’s 30.
Might be chasing more points bringing in Houli but other than McDonald I don’t see who else I could bring in.

Jambo

How about Brodie Smith, he's 451k at the moment. Hibberd is cheap too.

Jayden

What to do with Bellchambers

Ethan

hold
unless he's in your ruck then do a down up trade.
but if he's in the fwd, then you have some flexibility

SCaddict

He seems to be steadily improving each game as he builds up his match fitness base. If he can get us 75-80 each week I'd be more than happy to keep him til the byes and maybe upgrade him to a Sauce Jacobs in Rd12.

Mighty_Hondo

TBS will be a good trade up for a premo midfielder in due course. In the meantime will also cover current rucks and not lose any signifcant money although he has Freo this week so hit-outs might be tough. I've still got Lambert sitting in the mid…When the time is right I will drop TBC, move Lambert down to the Fwd and trade up the Belch for a premo mid..At least that's the plan at the moment. Lambert is proving useful to swap in a fdw/mid whilst Lewis is on holiday for 2 weeks. Hoping Lewis will come back highly motivated and kick arse.

Girdle

He’s not making cash, he’s not providing much cover And his ceiling Iis about 83. Upgrade to Martin or Blicavs (assuming you already have Goldy), they seem to have profited most from new scoring system

Girdle

Or Ryder! Champion Data gave him 95 pts from seven touches and three goals. Explain that one to Jordan Lewis owners.

Gold Rush

Jesus, Kelly tore himself a new one!!!!

Ollie

Thinking of going with 2 trades this week,

Van Berlo and Salem out, Goddard and Priddis in. As jock said priddis seems to fly under the radar a bit and is usually very consistent.

derek

good trades.

SCaddict

Sounds good Ollie. Looking at the same trades although upgrading to Hanners instead of Pridda.

Brett

Grundy or Blicavs? I think Goldstein has become too expensive, so its out of these two.

scrofl

Definitely Blicavs. Grundy's scores will drop significantly when Witts comes back into the team to share the workload.

mcleal10

Blicavs is one hell of a player. Go him.

Johnny

What do we do with Goodes & Newton?

Sam

What to do with Rohan bewick in defence, don’t know why I picked him to start with but he is stinking it up nd looks to be on the outer as sub.

Thinking either

->bewick to Houli

->bewick to macdonald

Thoughts? Any better options?

@TheNoLanguage

Houli will be a top 6 mid I'd go him

Luviboy1

My current spuds are: Walker, Parker, Newnes and Lumumba. Who gets dropped? Didnt start with Fyfe (silly me), and I would like to get him in this week.

On another note is Daniel Rich ready to be slaughtered?

mcleal10

I'd hold all. You should definitely be looking for a way to sneak in Fyfe. If you have a slippery DPP that you can swing, I'd try that.
Daniel Rich to Rockliff in a week or so would be the most suitable option. If you can't find a way to get Fyfe in, go Rich to Fyfe and then wait to get Rockliff in via rookie. Also, If you want to be impatient like most of us, trade a Newnes or Lumumba to a trusty Defender like McDonald or Murphy.

Jack

Trading out Lycett, who is the best ruck to bring in? Can afford all except Goldy.
Options are: Martin, Blicavs, Grundy, Mumford, Ryder, Jacobs.
Thoughts?

Traderlyf

martin

Sean

Who is the best ruck to bring in out of:
Blicavs, Grundy, Mumford, Ryder, Jacobs
Thoughts?

Ethan

my pick would be blicavs. followed by ryder depedning if you have bellchambers for the swing

jimmy

What is going on with Brodie Smith?

SCaddict

Getting nice and cheap for those who don't have him is what's going on! Should be sub $400K in another fortnight.

Just one of many afflicted by 'curse of the premo defender' this season.

nathan

Bringing in jpk and goldy this week using most of my warchest
But next week out goes mcintosh and Salem
Both should make B/E this week and have a high one next week that will stretch them
Both downgrades
Both
