The Standing Room – Round 7

Published by Jock on

11083867_809215515841934_9018198388225981870_nG’day community and welcome to the standing room!

North and Essendon have gone head to head and everyone with Goldy as VC will be looking for a new captain, who do you have as VC/C?
Hibberd stunk it up again and Boomer Harvey represents some value now (most effective kick in 2014 according to Champion Data).

Sit down, grab a drink and let’s talk Supercoach!

@Whiteeey

I have no bench cover this week so a late out and I'm stuffed! Anyone else in the same boat as me?!

Jambo

Same here mate but that’s beyond our control. Best of luck this weekend.

@Whiteeey

Good luck to you too mate!

Mighty_Hondo

Yes same boat… Goodbye Mr Chipps was a sad movie, but not as sad as the late goodbye of Mr Cripps in SC this week,

Hamish

I had goddard as VC. Do I take the 114 or roll dice on Fyfe,Grey, Selwood, Pendles? Cheers

Steve

I wouldn’t take less than 130 from a vc. I’d wake the c on fyffe

@Whiteeey

It's always safer to take what you have, but all four of those blokes could easily outscore 114!

r2d2

I have vc on Goddard too , while happy with his score , it not enough really , about 20 short ,, has too be fyfe

Steve

Amy word on Cripps. Heard he might not play

Jambo

Not verified from a reliable source though.
I expect him to play. However, I suspect McGovern may not play as it is pouring over here in Perth. If I am not mistaken, the Eagles may not risk the chance of aggravation his sore calf.

Hamish

It looks very likely he will be a late out, luckily I do have cover.

Vince the quince

Yeh he didn't play he was a late out

r2d2

TBC needs to go !

Jambo

Who to though?

Dustbin Feltchers

TBC was traded out for T Mitchellson last night before the bounce…i couldnt take another lousy 60!!…

SideBySidebottom

Hold him if he's F6 as ruck cover, otherwise upgrade. Hird said on Crunch Time this morning that he's been playing with a small fracture behind his knee which has been hampering his performance, Apparently he should be over it now or soon or something.

BundyBear

LOL yeah ur right. Or something. I have TBC. After this week he will become ruck cover. I thought Hird once said that player welfare comes before everything. Does that mean that injuries have nothing to do with welfare. If I had know he was carrying an injury I would never of got him. Anyway it is what it is

Liam

Hogan or Clark on the field??

Andy

I would say Clarke mate. Hogan will have Frawley to deal with

Redgumwon

I'm going with Clark as well. The Hawthorn defence is very handy and can double team very well. I don't think Hogan will get much opportunity with two or three hawks hanging off him

Derek

If Clark plays

Box

Hogan OUT!

SideBySidebottom

The General has made your decision for you.

Andy

Who is the best replacement for sloan? I have Fyfe and Pendles. Cheers for the advice

@Whiteeey

I'm waiting a week or two to bring in Rockliff…

Keep an eye on JPK, Priddis, Selwood! 🙂

Derek

The 0 comes out of Rockys ace age after next week, so many people will be getting him next week.

They are playing Port this week, I can see Cornes tagging him like he did to SMitchell and Sloane. Rocky could score low this week and allow us to wait a week.

The week after Essendon they are at home to Saints, I think he will join my team then

Motsy

Anyone else see that article about pendles having a shoulder reconstruction over the break??

Andy

Yeah! Best kept secret in AFL history

SideBySidebottom

I thought it was common knowledge that he'd had shoulder surgery and was not involved in contact training right up to the NAB Challenge matches. His scores in those matches were less than inspiring. I was contemplating not having him in my starting side but by round one eve he was in.

Derek

How does Priddis go in the wet?

SideBySidebottom

Priddis goes in any weather,

Derek

Going Cripps to Priddis

SideBySidebottom

I'm planning on keeping Cripps. If he's my last upgrade after the byes to Ablett or Bartel and can continue to score 90 to 100 in the meantime I'll be happy.

Ethan

against richmond last year in the torrential rain, he had 18 tackles and 30 possesions

BasilZempilas

About 200

Craig

Unbelievable foresight! Well guessed fella.

Andy

Who is more reliable JPK or Mundy?

Andy

And does anyone think Armatige can keep his current form ?

Derek

Mundy is coached by Ross Lyon!!

Freo putting wins in the bank, look for some players having a rest

Derek

McKenzie has avoided the best. Might get a run on my field.

Have to cover Simpson

Derek

Vest

Jambo

I think he also avoided the best today (;

Redgumwon

Just got a phone call from my brother and he said on the radio they said Hogan out Pedersen in

Redgumwon

Confirmed Hogan out

Jon Ralph ✔ @RalphyHeraldSun

Jesse Hogan out for Dees. Should have withdrawn him after the warmup. Might have cost them a few grand but this will cost them 4000 fans!

Redgumwon

FOX FOOTY LIVE ✔ @FOXFootyLive

Hogan OUT of @melbournefc side with general soreness, replaced by Pederson.
Smith (ill) replaced by Simpkin for @HawthornFC. #AFLHawksDees

Derek

Hogan out

McKenzie in

markstar9

What do you guys reckon about taking Gray as captain over fyfe? Everyone will have fyfe as captain, but either gray or boak against the lions as a bit of a POD? Doggies have been travelling reasonably well this seasons to say the least… I reckon port will smash the lions harder than the dockers will! What do you guys reckon? 🙂

Andy

Thats what ive done mate

Bailey

Me too

Luke

Jesse Hogan OUT with "general soreness"

Jimbo

IN: D McKenzie

OUT: K McIntosh or A Vendenberg?

Redgumwon

McIntosh out IMHO but it would depend on your team balance

SideBySidebottom

I've traded him into the midfield for defence swing.

Daniel

Who should i put the vc on out of griffen, jpk, the bont or fyfe? can put the c on pendles or gray after due to having lambert?

SideBySidebottom

Fyfe would make the timing tight. If that's a concern then JPK.

Aaron

Has anyone got a good source stating cripps may be a late out?

Derek

I was tossing up between Cripps or Vandenberg who should be culled this week.

Thinking Cripps now. His massive round 3 score drops out of his average after this week, so his BE will be huge next week.

His SC score last week I thought was inflated.

Swans2012

Cripps a much better on field option in my opinion Than vandy, his 100 should at least keep his $$$ the same or climbing for the next couple. Vandy gets the chop first imo although I’m keeping both for now…

SideBySidebottom

The Footy Alert app will let us know before the game.

luke

Not sure whether to field McKenzie in defence or have him as emergency for cripps. 15 mins to decide

T.J.M

Lonie and Smith subbed with concussion. Not a good weekend so far

cow roll

tell me about it 🙁
both may end up with single digit scores.

Paule

lonie is on 3. I got him as my E

T.J.M

Salem done a hamstring.

The Bont

This isn't even funny anymore. Salem and Lonie both subbed out early with injuries. So many fkn injuries this year it's killing me

Wazza

This is the weekned from hell.

the death doctor

ROUND 7 UPDATE

Lonie – concussion – 4DT
Riewoldt – concussion – 26DT *straight to hospital after sickening clash
Salem – hamstring – 12DT
B Smith – concussion – 8DT
Cripps – possible late out
I Smith – LATE OUT
J Hogan – LATE OUT
J Geary – LATE OUT

the death doctor

Cripps -LATE OUT

Kev

Add in some popular rookie choices
DMac – 35SC
Lever – 37SC
VBerg – 36SC

Meanwhile Melbourne get flogged by 105 points and McDonald scores 120. Go figure

Jambo

I am SO glad I brought in Fyfe this week for Sloane after today.

Tyler

Maybe this Concussion will make smith go back to how he was playing before his first one…

SideBySidebottom

Cripps out.

Rick Grimes

Morrrhahaha. Have to laugh or I’ll cry. Donut in midfield.

Rick Grimes

Think SCHQ should retrospectively make this a best 18 scorers round.

Swans2012

Agreed

Jambo

You could cry then laugh or laugh til you cry.

Derek

Cripps out. Who should I put on field, Clark (geel) or Krakour?

Swans2012

I’ve gone Clark, tough call

Derek

Might go Krak. Clark might even miss game

Swans2012

It’s possible, I’ll be keeping an eye on the late outs

T.J.M

Trade cripps to either Shiel or Priddis or hold?

Tyler

Priddis

Brillsy21

I have Lewis, CEY and Glenn on my bench who I traded in this round. I also have cripps. Do I take the doughnut or trade out glenn?
If so, who too?

Rick Grimes

McKenzie is a spud. Probably got less points than NickyRoo and he’s been unconscious for the last hour.

AMERICANMAGPIE1

lol

Paule

McKenzie on 35 Riewoldt on 21 late in the last

Kev

Seen 3 games from the bloke in his first year of footy. Expecting 100's Rick?

AMERICANMAGPIE1

McKenzie a disappointment

Ben

what did you expect from him?

Jim

Cripps to Ebert, Priddis,Neale,Shiel or hold

AMERICANMAGPIE1

Priddis

T.J.M

CRIPPS to Titch?

dognino

Boy oh boy, don't think I can watch any more footy this weekend. On 240 SC points from 6 played. With all the late outs so far I'm down to zero bench cover, Tarrant the only respectable score so far smith, Mckenzie, lever, labumba, vandenberg ……just eeew.

dognino

And Tom McDonald still carving it up…..originally was bringing him in this round, but then there were a few outs I had to cover which meant I couldn't afford him and decided to bring lever in a round early

AMERICANMAGPIE1

Dude dont feel bad a lot of people are in the same boat! Everyone traded in McKenzie if they didnt already have him so alot of people copped a crap score from him! Including me…..but his 35 was better than a donut….something better than nothing!

Sully321

Take Jacobs' 125 as captain or put c on either pendles, fyfe or JPK?

AMERICANMAGPIE1

Think you should got with Fyfe or Pendels think they will score more than 125?

AMERICANMAGPIE1

Probably Pendels I like his match up over Fyfes

Sully321

Do Bulldogs have a tater this year? Haven't watched many dogs games this year

Tyler

I would take Jacob's' score, it's a very good score and if any of those players score more it probably won't be by much, and it's a good chance they won't outscore him

Alex

507 from six played, got lumba, venders,Parker,Clark,shaw,griffin, nic nat and miller to come tonight. Thoughts

Alex

*lumumba

the sprinkler

thoughts? ya faaked- just like alot of us. 2100 looking like a good top 3000 score atm.

just need fyfe to pump out a good 190-270 as C to be saved from an over the barrel crack bashin.

PS JR- DMac a worker-like-head-over-the-ball-type-player…… hmmmm??

sc freckle puncher

KNOCK KNOCK?
whos there?
THE SC FRECKLE PUNCHER?
the sc freckle puncher who?
JUST SHOW ME YOUR TEAM, BEND OVER THAT KEG AND ILL SHOW YOU. CONSIDER YOUR SELF PUNCHED

Baggy Pants

Griffin stinking it up again Mumford 70, Coniglio 70, Docherty 53 points at half time

Tophawk

Whats news. Griffin, barring a decent second half will be departing for Tom Rockliff next week. At least I will have peace of mind. Griffen scores a tonne, then a spud, a tonne, another spud etc Just too friggin inconsistent.

Jambo

Griffen got subbed in the third quarter with a minor knee injury. I think I will officially name today as ‘Black Saturday’ for SuperCoach.

Pat

thoughts on JPK as captain? Or should I just keep it as Fyfe?

AMERICANMAGPIE1

Stay with Fyfe….better matchup

Poloko48

McGovern OUT – the carnage continues!

Poloko48

Lynch & Russell OUT for GCS.

AMERICANMAGPIE1

Starting to think Jeremy Cameron should be on my side….I almost took him last week! Think its time?

Westy

Based on results this week, I think we'd all just about have done better with Jeremy CLARKSON!

AMERICANMAGPIE1

For Sure!!!!

Booma

Had Cameron at start of season, he stunk it up for 4 rounds so I traded him to Bontempeli… Has gone over the tonne the last 2 weeks 🙁

sc freckle puncher

SHOW ME YOUR TEAM HEEEEYYYYYYYYYYY—- GRIFFEN SUBBED hehehehehe hahahahahaha oooaaahhhh hahahahahaha

BasilZempilas

Griffen subbed out

Pom

Did a sneaky vice captain on T mcdonald and he busted out a 124. Take it or go pendles or fyfe?

Pat

Take. 120+ is easily good enough

AMERICANMAGPIE1

No way go with Pendels!!! He will score 150 tomorrow

AMERICANMAGPIE1

Pendels plays the tigers!!!! Go with Pendels!!!!!

Pom

Or gray vs lions?

Paule

Griffen subbed out on 48 ffs what a week

Josh

Why was he subbed?

Tophawk

What a brutal round this is. More late outs for tonight's matches. Mc Govern is a late out for the eagles. Mc Govern on the bench for either N Brown or K Mac Intosh. All my benches are close to fully stretched!!! Hanging on by the skin of my teeth to avoid a donut. LOL

AMERICANMAGPIE1

Go with either its a coin toss!

Tophawk

I will sleep on it tonight. LOL

Tyler

K mac

David Knowles

Hear’s to next year ty stupid fkn round of football ontop of stupid fkn start leading up to this carnage, goodbye fairwell good riddance lol

Josh

Sloane, Ellis yolmen, saad already out..

cripps late out

Salem, Griffen injured

Mckenzie 30 vandenburg 30

And we aren’t even finished yet

I’m scared community

Any support is welcome during this tough stage.

AMERICANMAGPIE1

Be afraid be very afraid!

Derek

Pretty happy with Vandenberg to Priddis trade.

Glenn

Yep, did the same, loving it

David Knowles

75 percent of teams will never reach full premo now. The teams who have some how dodged most if not all bullets are in the box seat now

Tophawk

So that means 25% will!

The glass is quarter full………or empty David?

Any suggestions to the community?

BasilZempilas

Priddis a lazy 91 points halfway through the second

Derek

100+ in a half of footy for my new team member. Go Priddis.

Bluetackle

Happy to have the vc on the prid go for the double ton son

Derek

118SC at half time for Priddis

Derek

Miller has a lazy 51 at half time. Need every point we can get this week
