PODCAST: A Critical Season Crossroads

Published by Jock on

Supercoach 2015This is the part of the season that will make you. Or break you community.

We’ve endured another horrific weekend of late outs and ordinary performances by key players. Most have endured a donut or two. We’ve all taken our fair share of body blows. We’re battle weary. Some are flagging.
But this is the period of the season where the STRONG emerge my friends! And we have a STACK to get through with some absolutely delicious trade in options this week.

Fellas, How much cash should be in the chest coming into byes soon?

john

i have 641k

Ethan

way to much to have right now. Theres 4 rounds left till byes, so its best to spend at least 3/4 of that cash and bring in some fallen premiums

Ben

Surely you're doing a double upgrade this week?

Luke

i have 110 k with my changes, 180 K without, but im not sure if that is enough

PreviouslyOnLost

I would have a look at who you would like to bring into your side around the byes, and then have a look at what price they are likely to be at a particular round (which you can see via supercoach gold). Also have a look at what price some of your rookies will be at that price and calculate the difference. From there, plan around how you will get the cash to make those trades.

If going for league, then just put cash in the bank as you can and upgrade players when they bottom out and trade down rookies at their fullest price

If going for overall rank, then try to upgrade as quick as possible, might mean that you need to slaughter rookies early or grab fallen premos a week early.

@KingWinter7

I got 11k lol

Liam

Out: Fyfe
In: Bootsma

Josh

Solid

mcleal10

I concur

OldOcker

Not sure about Bootsma yet.

Derek

I would wait on Zac Dawson

Westy

Or Relton Roberts

Wheels1987

good trade
POD

Josh

Vandenburg To priddis or Parker?

And what happened to Salem and Griffen

Are they injured and out for any time?

If so should I get rid of Griffen because I have sloane sitting on the pine as well

Also is lever a valid option?

Thanks

Daniel

I’ve been looking for the same answers

mcleal10

Salem did his hammy. Now is the perfect time to chop him. Griffen is under clouds but still isn't showing promise.
Lever is an option, but could be under the vest this week. I'd consider trading straight swap with Griffen or Sloane to a Priddis or Parker.
You could do an old trade down to trade up with Griffen.

Danny

Don't thnk he's a vest candidate, not the right style

Derek

There was a Crows defender did a knee. That should give Lever better JS

Ben

Jaensch is a running half back where lever is a key position defender, completly different roles

Josh

But if Salem is out I don’t think I need to trade him
I will only trade him if he is going to lose me money
I’m just worried about Griffen
Will he play this week?

Ambidisasterous Dave

Agree. Not only that, whoever you bring in is either not playing or will have a bye in round 12 or 13. Get your bye structure right, trade in round 11 bye premos after r11, before r12 and r12 premos after r12, before r13 starts

Ambidisasterous Dave

Griffen red vest precautionary, wait for teams to come out, I reckon he’ll play

Ethan

should i get on rockliff if i sacrifice CEY

mcleal10

Its an option but Yolmen will be back for round 9. If the trade is only misfortunate, then it will be a bad one since Yolmen has shown more consistency.

Ethan

my midfield is decently loaded atm with cripps and yoleman being my m7 and m8.
this is my team http://gyazo.com/00b7765e48431d858445b1f1037ba653
i want mcdonald in asap but i fall short
which rookies could i go to to get in mcdonald

scrofl

With a team looking that good, I'm guessing you've used a lot of trades already. I'd skip over Rockliff this week and save your trades til the byes.

Luke

You guys are nuts, rocky at $450k and you don't recommend bringing him in? He is straight in, no questions asked

People traded and declined to bring in Parker 2 weeks ago, that has already came back to hurt

Ethan

used 8 so far. Ill potentially bring in rocky in round 12 since i have so many gun midfielders missing that round

Avzmo

This team looks impressive, but I realise my team has more $ value, so I feel like by trading a few rookies I will be at the same point. Wouldn't have thought looking at someone elses team would have made me so happy.

@KingWinter7

CEY to Lever/Pearce then upgrade Oxley to McDonald

OldOcker

Coach has said that CEY will be playing next week.

Wheels1987

hold CEY
but get rocky

tom

is rockliff ready to bring in?

dean

If you cant fit him in next week id grab him, but im going to wait one more week, possible he wont hit breakeven, and even if he does he wont go up to much.

Jimi

I'd put the house on him hitting BE (79) this week. This will be his lowest price but it won't break the bank to bring him in next round if you have other priorities.

nathan

High score of 97 might wait a week and fix other issues

TheCompletePackage

Agreed. I want to see some decent runs on the board first.

Wheels1987

yes
BE of less than 80

Liam

is lever a good downgrade option?

@KingWinter7

I'm jumping on

Jacob

Don't think so TBH. Young key defender who will struggle to average much above 50. Think that 97 was a one off thing. Plus hes not cheap at 160k.

Wheels1987

yes

Avzmo

I'm avoiding him, not many key position players can make money. JS is good though.

Tom

through DPP I am going Griffen to Lever and N Brown to Rance leaving me with 150k

is this smart?

or do I hold Griffen and get rid of vandenberg for Lever.

only have 70 k in the bank so cant go vandenberg to rocky…

thoughts???

@KingWinter7

Hold Griffen and trade down Vandenberg instead

Jimi

It all depends on how bad Griffin's injury is. If it's nothing serious I'd prioritise trading out VDB.

Sang

Love your work Crouching One. Anyone have thoughts on Giants' Devon Smith as an option @ 507K?

Bog rat

Shhhh, don't tell anyone

OldOcker

Smith is overpriced with an average of 97.7 $507,700 with a b/e of 138.

Hazey

Have been keeping an eye on him n waiting for a couple of bad games to bring him back down to value.

Buddy could be an option this week.

Derma147

Cripps or rich out for Rockliff

TheCompletePackage

Rich out…..rich out…..rich out and touch somebody.

scrofl

Neither for mine. With Rocky back in the Lions side, Rich should escape the tag and run rampant. And Cripps is outscoring half our midfielders anyway.

@lewiswgrant

Enter text right here!

clkla

I have Vandenberg, Griffen, Brown, Hogan, Oxley and 60k

what do I do?

@KingWinter7

I'm in the same boat and with McIntosh along with 11k to get me through….

@KingWinter7

I went Oxley down to Lever and Vandenberg up to Joel Selwood if your interested

Charlesy

Similar King. Looking at Oxley for lever and vandenberg out for Parker

Dean

King it would pay to wait another week on Selwood if you can as his break even is 125

judd0

Oxley to Lever is the obvious downgrade then upgrade Vandenberg to whomever you want perhaps Rockliff or Parker

Ambidisasterous Dave

Vdb and Oxley have the highest be’s so will lose the most cash, they are the priority to trade out

L. Gibbs

was thinking Ryan Griffen to Dayne Beams or to Matt Priddas and The gift lumumba to not sure in defence have 493 k to spend?

Danny

If you are feeling lucky Thurlow from is in their best 22 & knocked out 3 100s in a row.

Youngy_

I really like Beams as a option

mcleal10

Is it time to go Maric? I'm stuck with Nic Nat's poor scoring and am tempted to get my rucks straight. I know rucks are risky when it comes to trading but it could pay off.

Charlesy

I brought in mummy to join Goldy last week and very happy

@RyanRhino14

Why would you get rid of Maric when he's averaging 103 and is the number 3 ruck and why are people telling you it's not a bad idea?????????

judd0

He asked if it was time to bring in Maric for Nic Nat, not get rid of him.

Wheels1987

hold nic nat
im a tigers fan and Maric is suspect for a few shite games.

nic nat hasnt played alot of footy over last couple of years.. give him time. he will score 200 sometime soon

Redgumwon

I'm not sure if you have ruck cover or not? I'd hold until you get an injury to one of your ruckmen and trade up then. You'd only be burning a trade otherwise and you would really kick yourself if the new ruckman went down soon after you got him with injury

Wrong in the head

Similar problem for me so have gone creative. Blicavs (MID/RUC) and H. Goddard (FWD/DEF) in as part of a Hogan and Vandenberg trade.

1. I can loophole Goddard if Clark goes large tonight.

2. Blicavs is certainly performing better than Nic Nat and the only reason I didn't do a sideways this week is that West Coast have St Kilda and Natanui may just deliver. If he does then great but if he hits his AVG again then next week i will drop him and use the cash to bring in another MID premo and put Blicavs in the RUC

Its a risk reward type of strategy but my season has been running that way so far so im may as well continue that way.

Luke

vandenberg or salem out?

Wheels1987

both

Ambidisasterous Dave

Agree both

Nick

Hi community,
Just wondering if griffin will be out with his injury should I move him along or hold

Jimmy

Got geary, griffen, and salem what do I do with these boys

@KingWinter7

Griffen keep for the moment. Salem has to go. Haven't heard enough on Geary to decide yet

haydn

Is Dayne Beams a good option. He has been doing well (I think)

the brew king

Ive had him all year and apart from his first few rounds I've been pretty happy. that being said if you have the extra cash id be looking at priddis or JPK (if you don't have him already).

SideBySidebottom

Over his past four seasons he's averaged 101, 123, 102 and 116. He's 25 years old and averaging 109 so far this year. A few weeks ago some considered (and some acted on) trading him out due to poor performance.

Swans2012

I think he’ll be top 8, about 5th I reckon

Wheels1987

Beams is awesome, but look for rocky this week

Alister14

How many trades do we have left??

Alister14

Or how many should we?

mcleal10

I'm only on 22 at the moment.

SideBySidebottom

21.

Ben

No correct answer. How many long term injuries have you had? Overall ranking or league only? As long as you haven't wasted any on sideways trades, you've got enough trades left.

craig

23

Stickman

Higgo suggested last week to go into the byes with 20 trades, in saying that I currently have 23.

Jimi

20 before trading this round.

judd0

22 after this week

Wheels1987

i just used my 2 this week
i have 20 left

jimmydowland

hold hibberd?

JMG

I’m going to. Lost too much cash and you can guarantee the minute you trade him out he will start pulling out tons. This happened to me last year!

Wheels1987

you have too
dont want to lock in such a big loss

mcleal10

I am. I'd only consider trading down defence once everything else looks fine.

bombers94

Anyone know if harley bennel will play next week ?

Cozza

Depends how hard he celebrates the loss tonight

Ben

Hahajahahahaha

TRIGGER HAPPY

+1

Wheels1987

nah mate
he will be out on the pingaz

@t_woof

Good podcast lads.

Been a very tough round. Good to have a few laughs at the end of it….sometimes you can only laugh.

1916 with one 0. My rank is free falling, was mid 200's, tick outside 1000 on Friday, now in 5K's.

Rapt i get Lewis back, but worried that you mentioned Bennell and weeks…..please tell me no, no, no, no!! Already have Hodge & Sloane on the pine. Can't sideways any premiums, as won't hit full premium.

Looking at VandenBerg > Treloar 490K this week.
Take out Treloar's one flop of 48 when his entire team were putrid @ Subiaco v WCE, and he's averaging 113. Has dropped about 80-90K from starting cost.

Enjoy the week ahead everyone.

Sang

Yep think Treloar has upside at a nice price.
I went Shiel last week and am pleased so far.
Giants and Dogs are on the up.

Stickman

Wondering if there is much value in fallen premiums at the moment. Rockliff, Barlow and Dom Tyson are expected to continue falling and Gibbs, Stevie J and Nathan Jones have showed next to nothing to bother consideration. I am thinking at looking at a JPK or Beams who have still lost money but are both around that 570k. Thoughts?
Cheers Community

@KingWinter7

I'm going to Joel Selwood. Only 532k with a BE of 126 and always kills it against the blues so very achievable

Jimi

Rockliff, no brainer. This will be his bottom price, yet to hit his stride since a terrible start to the year. Nothing but upside with him IMO.

SideBySidebottom

Rockliff and Barlow are the only two fallen premiums on that list. Either of them are worth consideration or conservatively JPK and Beams are solid.

Wheels1987

get rocky

TyS

Do I use two trades to get Rocky? Was 7k off going Brayshaw up to Rocky grrr…… Would leave me with 200k in the bank going Oxley to Lever. 18 trades left after doing those trades ouchhh injuries….. Would there be any other rookie options on the bubble (any position)

Wheels1987

to get rocky you need to make 2 trades
sorry to say
i would advise to hold Ox, but in your case u need to Eff him off. bring in the raging bull

Traderlyf

is i time for oxley to go with his 90 BE? He is playing GC so its possible he could reach it

@KingWinter7

He's averaging 82 with a BE of 95. Time to move on, I'm going to Lever

Jimi

If your going to move him on then now is best the time. unfortunately due to injuries I have other priorities this week. Considering his average, the dearth of defensive downgrade options and the sheer number of trades I've used due to serious injuries to premos, I'm tempted to hold onto Oxley (and Saad) for the season.

Wheels1987

im holding

david

I really think he will go very close this week to his BE…keep

Simon

Oxley to Mitchell and Lonie to Parker. Good move?

General Soreness

Solid trades.

min0008

Oxley to Lever and Vandenberg to Franklin or Treloar?

@KingWinter7

I'm doing the same and getting Jelwood

Wheels1987

Treloar over Frankin. MID scoring output always beats FWD scores over the season

@KingWinter7

My Supercoach team so far:

15 Keepers (Shaw, Smith, Simpson. Fyfe, Pendles, JPK, Lewis, Selwood. Goldstein, Maric. Gray, Bont, Swanny, Dusty, Goddard)
2 Mids/Maybe Keepers (Newnes. Griffen)
5 On-field Rookies (Saad, Lever. Krak. Tarrant, Clark)
8 Bench Rookies (McIntosh, Brown. McKenzie, Glenn, Anderson. Read. Hogan, Lambert)

Thoughts on the structure at this time in the year?

TylerC.A

Guys. You all may think I'm crazy but I'm not sure Rockliff can sustain last years form and end up a top 8 mid, thus I don't think I will be bringing him in. What are your thoughts?

OldOcker

Totally agree with you Tyler, I would like to see one decent score before wasting a trade I can't afford.

Ben

Extremely unlikely he'll average what he did last season but you can safely assume a 105+ average at the minimum from here on out. At 450k what more do you want? Season long averages he won't be a top 8 mid but from round 8 onwards he has every chance to be one. There's no risk at bringing him in at that price.

Ben

It's similar to Tom Mitchell last week. The scoring potential and massive upside is there and there that cheap if they do fire and score what there capable of, it'll really hurt you not picking them at there basement price.

Jimi

I'd be a lot more comfortable if he'd punched out 100+ this week, but I think he'll just gather steam once he can get a run of games. I'm in for him, you won't get him cheaper.

demon

If you look at his stats from the last 2 years he's started slow and come home like a steam train 2nd half of the year

TylerC.A

Thanks for all the feedback. Hmm not sure, I'll definitely wait this week to see how he goes.

Swans2012

as everyone has said its all about the value, i think the lowest he’ll average from here is 105 which for 450k is a no brainier for m8 at worst.

SideBySidebottom

Don't underestimate the effect of his recent concussion. It'll take him about three weeks to fully recover. There are other examples this year where post concussion scores had coaches frustrated with their player's output. Luke Parker is a prime example. I'm sure his coaches are now glad they held him. 90s at this stage for Rocky should turn to 120s when he's right.

Wheels1987

you have big ball to not get him.

many players did not start with GOD

and they had a win.

by not getting Rocky you may set yaself apart from the pack.

but thats a very big MAY

i say BRING IN THE RAGING BULL

Ben

Everyone's thoughts on Ziebell? If you exclude the 4 against Port, he's averaging 103 for the season which is the same as Goddard but 100k cheaper.
When it feels like every week, different popular SC picks get suspended / injured / rested, is it to risky to pick someone like Ziebell who has a higher suspension / injury chance compared to others?

Hazey

As a mad Roo’s supporter, I’d live to bring him in, but just can’t trust him not to commit kamikaze!

Hazey

Literally… I would live! I’d love him too!

General Soreness

If you exclude his 4 you might as well exclude his 150 which shows he is a 90 average player at best.

Ziebell also likes to run into things with his head.

Swans2012

Yep risk vs reward, I took him a fortnight ago for 390k, averaging 94 without the 150 and the 5. But really the only average that matters is the one from when you pick him onwards, for 390k he will be my perfect f7m9 loophole by seasons end, although I’ve got a vision of him averaging 105 for the rest of the year.

ThatDamnRascal

Starting to lock my team away. So careful thought is going into who to bring in.
Outs will be Vandenberg(has peaked) and Griffin( had enough of his inconsistent performances)
Think Lever has some good coin to make coming into the round 11 bye So I can cull a mid and flick Saad/Mckenzie into the middle.
Already have the likes of Pendles, Fyfe, Watson, Lewis
Leaves me with plenty of cash to grab
Priddis – You would think he's top 8 Mids this year,
Parker- Finally found form and looks to build on that.
Rockliff- Is he really a must?
Armitage- He's been very consistent
Shiel – Keeps getting the job done.

So many to choose from

Ben

I’ll be shocked if vandenberg reaches his b/e and griffen just has to go asap.

Paying peak price for priddis and armitage and lowest price for rockliff and parker. All should be similar scoring and personally wouldnt be able to justify spending an extra 150k on armitage or priddis instead of rockliff. Look at the byes of all the players and pick accordingly. With pendles/fyfe/jobe may be tough to add parker to that aswell with all same bye round

Adam

Is it stupid to trade jack lonie to kane lampert purely for his dpp and captain loophole ability? Lonies going to fall heaps with that 3, no rookies coming through and full premo fwd line.

Deadly

You think Lambert will come back in at some stage

BKW

Nope not stupid – you think lambert will get games in the back half of the season – Jack Steele is another option but it sounds like Lonie won’t play this week so I would delay trading him as he won’t loose any money this week

General Soreness

Armitage over $600K – avoid you are buying in at top of price.
The rest are fine selections.

Dan

May hold this week. Some rookies will drop a bit (Oxley, Vandenberg, Lonie) but then so may the premos who I intend to bring in.

James

Is it too late for Titch? Had other priorities last week but he seems the real deal

VDB -> Titch

Oxley -> Rocky (via dpp)

General Soreness

Solid trades James.

carlashirley90

Not too late for titch at all but this would be last chance for sure if you are keen

Rick Grimes

Don't see why it's last chance. Plenty picked up Goddard at $500k+. If Titch is a top 6 forward, I'll pick him up at whatever price he's at when it suits my structures. I'm not a price sensitive consumer.

Swans2012

Picking right more important than picking cheap

Jimi

Picking both is best. I'm in the same boat as OP and getting Tmitch this round.

Swans2012

Your right my last four trades have been McDonald and Ziebell 2 weeks ago, and t Mitch and d Mac this week! All cheap and all ticks so far…..definately not too late for t Mitch, will struggle to score less than 85 on a bad day.

SideBySidebottom

Same for me. Cash generation from rookies is on track and I've chartered out my trades for a fully upgraded team. I'll make a decision on Mitchell and McDonald after the byes. I'd rather pay more with a solid track record than go earlier for a bargain and endure a nervous wait. If funds were tight things might be different.

Jack

I have rookies such as
Lonie, vdb, n brown, heeney, Ellis yolmen, Mcintosh

They are all peaking do not know wether to cull them or one up and one down

General Soreness

CEY likely to return. All will need to go at some stage but culling to bubble boys is preferable. VDB would be the first on the block for mine.

jim

cold dom tyson be one to look to bring in for vandenberg?

General Soreness

nope plenty of better options around Jim

Tom

who to get rid of for Lever?

Oxley, Griffen (DPP), V-Berg (DPP) ??

General Soreness

Not Griffen. Either of the other two fine.

Rob

BACK: Shaw, simpson, newnes, lumumba, Oxley,Saad ( mckintosh and hamling)
Mid: Fyfe, selwood, Gray, D.Mckenzie, Kennedy, Shiel, Cripps, Vanderberg( CEY, Krak, Blakely)
Ruck: Ryder, Nicnat( read)
FWD: Roughy, Martin, Bont, Hogan, Franklin,Tarrant( Lonie and lambert)

I have 250K to spend

Not sure if I want to get in Rock this week.

Any suggestions?

General Soreness

You dont have Pendles, I would consider fixing that and getting Rocky in.

Liam

I have Saad, Oxley and Mckezie on field with only Brown as Bench cover

im thinking of swinging mckenzie into the mids and trading vandenberg or Griffen to Lever then upgrading Brown to someone like Rance. Is there something else I should do?

Maybe Oxley down to lever?

General Soreness

Sounds fine Liam but Vandy down to lever preferred.

@Rem_Wah

If you could have a bad week, I had it.
Scored 1725, blasting my ranking from 7,000 ovr to 35,000.
B. Smith, Salem, Z. Smith, Vandenberg, McIntosh, Selwood (chose him over Priddis at the last second and put him captain), Clark, Cripps on field, Ibbotson, Griffen, McKenzie. I could go on….

nathan

Great podcast once again lads

I’ve lost my marbles on griffen now

can’t have him in my side any longer so he’s out for treloar

Now I just need a rookie to build some bank balance as I’m now at 17k

Does Oxley have anymore money to make?

Or mckintoch, saad, CEY, Salem,Clark or lonie

They are the one to go

Whos the one that needs to go?

General Soreness

Oxley average below BE, can go this week. CEY likely to return. Salem injured needs to go. McIntosh can wait a week so can Clark. Saad will return.

derek

shame that CEY and Saad didn't play this week, that would have got them closer to culling. need to hold them as more cash to be made.

Oxley is ready to go. salem already gone.

nathan

The only good the about CEY and saad missing is the fact they can be the last traded out

But yeah Oxley looks like the one that needs to go
Like I said before treloar looks like a viable selection with lever from the crows which leaves a bit of cash
Or I could bring in rocky
Not sold in rocky yet for this year
Hasn’t gotten over 100 yet

Jay

Agreed Rocky isn't near his best yet, but not too far off – the possessions will come soon enough. The thing that has got me excited is last two games, he is averaging 9 tackles per game. He is working hard when he doesn't have the ball and with Bombers/Saints/Giants as the next three for the Lions, Rocky may not be less than 500k for too long!!

nathan

Hmmmmm nuch to ponder
Because if i bring rocky in i can also bring docerty in too
Saves downgrading
I just see a lot of upside to treloar
But with the money of a couple of rookies i might miss out on too
koke lever or strech if he can not be sub
The inly good thing is i only need one mid if i dont trade griff but he needs to go
So if i bring treloar in this week can being rocky in next
Hmmmmmmm

nathan

And both are way unders

Travis

Hi, my team is Travisty currently 6th overall, says I've won a voucher up top?

General Soreness

6th overall Travis, majestic mate, well done.

Hazey

Huge Thumbs Up bro

derek

keep it going!

Show us your team.

brook

as steve bracks would say, well done!

Swans2012

Killing it Travis!

Donut

Need to get rid of Salem, lumumba, vandenberg. Have 641k so I can afford anyone who should I get?
Pendles, JPK, priddis, rocky? Have 22 trades left.

Defence: shaw, newnes, Oxley, KMAC, Dmac, Goodes (brown, saad)

Mid: Fyfe, beams, Gray, Parker, Ebert, lumumba, vandenberg, jack Steven (CEY, heeney, Glenn)

Ruck; Maric, Nic Nat (read)

Fwd: swan, titch, Martin, TBC, Tarrant, Salem (Clark, krak)

General Soreness

You should get all four, how and when is up to you, but all 4 should make your side.

Ben Bretel

2296 boys now ranking around 2000th

Leon

Players I'm thinking of trading: Mcintosh, Smith, Griffen, Clark.
Who needs to go first? Or should i just hold all?
I only have 20 trades.
Please help out with trade options or if you think I should hold.
Thanks

derek

Smith and griffin are long term premos. That may still come good.

McIntosh & Clark were only cash cows, they need to be culled.

joe

thoughts on lewis taylor only about 300000 played up the ground the last two weeks had 22 and 28 disposals and 70 and 92 supercoach points could be bargain if he can average 90.

General Soreness

now is not the time to bring in mid pricers unless you think they can be keepers.

Tyler

My team so far would love some thoughts

Der – t McDonald , h shaw , h Taylor , j newnes , a saad , t hunt (k Macintosh and b Goodes )

Mid – n Fyfe , d Shiel , d beams , p dangerfield , j Selwood , t miller , c Ellis yolmen , t Rockliff ( d Mckenzie , j Glenn , m dick )

Ruck – t Goldstein , t Bellchambers ( r obrien )

Fwd – d swan , b Goddard , r Gray , l franklin , m bontempelli , r Tarrant ( m Clark , t lamb )

Mr chan

Good team mate except for Bellchambers.leaking points bad

SideBySidebottom

He cost $300k and is averaging 69 points. He may not be performing as well as we would like but he's certainly not leaking points. Having said that I prefer him at F6 than R2.

BKW

He is leaking points because many other coaches have solid second rucks (I have goldy/maric for example)

So you’re loosing 30-40 points a week by having Tom I. Your team (at least he isn’t loosing cash but he has to go, been playing injured)

Mr chan

That's rightBK,
I got him out after round 3 and happy ever since

General Soreness

Great podcast as always gents, always gets my Monday morning off to a good start.

Rocky in – may just break all time trade in records.

Jimi

Rocky in not even in the top 5 trades this week according to SC Gold – utter madness!

Jimi

Yeah ignore that I was looking at the "Players Traded In – Not In My Team" table 🙂

Rick Grimes

Anyone know how bad Lonie's head-smacking was? Is he likely to play this week?

Really need Saad and Cripps back this week. The cupboard looked very bare without them.

CEY still another week away?

RobDog

Read that CEY and Cripps likely starters this round.

SuperCoach Kid

Back – Shaw, Tmac, Taylor, Oxley, Prince, Saad (Mcintosh, Hamling)
Mids – Fyfe, Pendles, Selwood, Rich, Griffen, Lewis, Miller, Mitchell (VDB, Yolmen, McKenzie)
Rucks -Goldy, TBC (Cox)
Forward – Gray, Martin, Walker, Salem, Tarrant, Clark (Krakour, Lonie)

235k in the bank

2 options

1- Salem and Griffen > Goddard and Rocky (minimal cash left over)
2 – Salem and VDB > Lever and Rocky (more cash left over)

if anyone has any other options, help a brother out xox

I have similar problems. I am thinking this week it is more important to get TBC out and a decent R2 into my team. Either Sauce, Mummy, Maric.

I think I can wait a week for rocky, but TBC is just not getting it done like I hoped.

SuperCoach Kid

i first picked TBC hoping for an 70-80 average throughout the year, hes at 68 right now, which isnt great, but i think there is more important postions i can upgrade on before i look at my ruck stocks

Tophawk

I have Goldy, Maric and Bellchambers. I am not really pleased with TBC's output either, but I will keep him until the completion of round 13. Maric has the bye in round 11, TBC round 12 and Goldy rnd 13. No donuts in my ruck during the byes barring injuries. To me TBC is strategically significant for another 6 weeks. He will spend a fair bit of time on the pine next month, but I can live with that.

Cheers

Dont have enough cash to go Salem -> Goddard and VDB -> Rocky? that would be the ideal upgrades…..I personally am looking to hold Griffen at this stage..

Another option: Oxley -> Lever/Pearce, VDB -> Rocky. Put Salem on the bench (a little risky as no fwd bench cover), but this will build up your warchest even more, then next week you can go bang bang on Salem -> fallen premo fwd (or Goddard) or a premo mid (via Mitchell DPP). You should still have enough to then upgrade either of Clark/Lonie in the FWDs or McIntosh/Saad/Prince in the BACs

SuperCoach Kid

im about 100k short on your first option
but your 2nd leaves me 335k.

only problem is –
Saad – may or may not play (along with players under performing – Prince, Taylor)
Lever – Hit and miss (again, along with players under performing ^)
no forward bench cover

with 335 in the bank, i can cash in on Salem and get Dale (JS is a problem though)
then upgrade 1 player to a premo (who ever is maxed out in price after next week)

Perfect ointment for the wounds of this round, gents!

Can't stand Griff. Glad we got him in our side but doing squat all on my SC team.

Oxley to Tmac
Griff to Rockliff (sideways yet Rocky will come correct and hit the 130s in no time)

If there is to be a low point to my season, I'm hoping this round was it. Onward and upward!

Jimi

Hey Throtts, as a GWS fan, what's you're feel on Treloar? (I'm not trying to be lazy, I just haven't had the opportunity to see GWS play much this year).

AMERICANMAGPIE1

I have Treloar and I think he's good option!

throttlefinger

Agree. Especially at the price!

throttlefinger

Not a lot not to like about Treloar, Jimi. Good with the ball and his kicking seems to have gone up a notch. Ward, Griff and Shiels will always get more attention. He may get the odd 80 but he's repay you with 120+.

Can see him averaging 105. Won't be top 10 but could be an excellent POD M8.

Jimi

Cheers Throtts.

Tophawk

Griffin out for Rockliff and Lumumba out for Picken. Both have round 11 byes which balances my side nicely. 9, 10 and 11 out respectively over the 3 byes.

Priddis, Parker, B Smith and Franklin will have to be looked at later.

Luke

Don't trade those boys, you will regret it
