Patch’s Panic Room – Round 8

Published by Patch on

Patch - Supercoach Panic Room Master

Ellis-Yolmen, miss. Heeney, gawn. Saad. Miss. Hogan. Late out. Cripps. Late out. Clark. 53. Lever 38. vandenBerg. 37. McKenzie. 31. Salem. 16. LONIE. JACK LONE. THREE. THREE WHOLE POINTS.

I spent Sunday night in the foetal position, weeping softly into my pillow.

But you know the carnage. You lived it. We all lived it. We’re all in this together, community. Let’s try and survive it.


There is a lot of good news this week; but as always we do not escape unscathed.

The good news is Cam Ellis-Yolman, Adam Saad, Patrick Cripps Jesse Hogan, Jordan Lewis, Ollie Wines, Josh Kelly, Kade Simpson and The Sidebum are all BACK. This will give a lot of teams a lot of relief this week, after a few weeks of unabated carnage.

In bad news, Christian Salem will miss 2-3 weeks with a hamstring twinge that saw him subbed out for a measly 16 points. Josh Glenn from the Suns has also not been named, while Dom Sheed from West Coast will miss a week or two with a fractured hand. With a breakeven of 32 he still has cash to make, but it’d be within reason to give him the chop.

Ryan Griffin will play for GWS this week, which is bad news for those of us with him. He’s been rotating good scores with bad, but as Lek said this week in his video, he’s not the same player he was. He will lose cash over the next few weeks with his 116 BE. Consider trading if you can.

All the gents concussed on the weekend will miss, with Jack Lonie, Nick Riewoldt and Brodie Smith to all miss. Lonie can go, and doubts surround Riewoldt’s return, but you’d have to hold Smith – everyone will have him in a few weeks and he’s lost too much cash to ditch now.

Matthew Jaensch will miss the rest of the season after doing his knee. While bad news for those with him and are now forced to trade him, it opens a spot for popular rookie Jake Lever, who is on the bubble with a breakeven of -38.

North Melbourne captain Andrew Swallow has been rested this week, due to be back in a week or two.

Mitch Duncan will miss three months with a broken foot. While very, very few teams have him, he has been integral to the Geelong midfield and will leave a hole. This hole could be filled by a huge number of players rotated through there; Jake Kelly, Andrew Mackie coming back, or Stevie J could float through the middle. It could be a young player like Corey Gregson, Stevie Motlop or others. Watch this space.

If I’ve missed anyone, let us know. I’ve struggled to get out of the foetal position this week and haven’t had as much time as I’d like to peruse the news.


The Patch-Up has been shut down this week as the pun is well passed its use-by date and should be ashamed of itself. However, the weekly wisdoms, from Barron von Crow’s brilliant (as always) in his scouting report to the Dex Files on Jack Zeibell, to Lek’s video to the podcasts, will have you covered.


Eddie Murphys

-67 – Josh Glenn*
-38 – Jake Lever
-28 – Harry Schade
-16 – Nathan Krakouer
-13 – Dan McKenzie
31 – Matt Priddis

*not playing this week

Dan Aykroyds

184 – Scott Pendlebury
163 – Rory Sloane
155 – David Mundy
152 – Dan Hannebury


Let’s get straight into it.


Saad slots straight back into the #1 spot, while Lever should fill the role of Jaensch. Kelly looks to be the sub, while McKenzie has scared me off after last week’s 30-odd.



You’ve got to look at Cripps as the only promising player in a poor Carlton side. Ellis-Yolman back is lovely, while Miller has been consistent.


RU- actually, nevermind.



That’s it from me community. Under the pump this week so I’ve done the essentials and had to cut down on the flair, but I should be back in full swing next week, with a revived patch-up and more extensive look ahead to the byes.

I’ll do my best try and flit around in the comments when I can, community. But until next week, good luck, and may the Supercoach gods have mercy on us all.


chris · 22/05/2015 at 15:32

Jock, where would brett goodes slip in relative to the othr defensive rookies?

    Tyler · 22/05/2015 at 15:56

    I would say he would be about on-par with Lever

    baggyizzle · 22/05/2015 at 16:52

    I wouldn't be trading him in or out at this stage.

    Tylo · 23/05/2015 at 13:43

    Be wary of the vest

Jarrod · 22/05/2015 at 15:36

Thoughts on Vandenberg and Salem to Lever and Treloar or Priddis? Which one of Priddis and Treloar?

    Wattsieesq · 22/05/2015 at 15:54

    I started with Priddis and although he started slow, his production in the last 3 weeks has been trouser swelling. He's up around his average from last year, but still under the price paid for him at the start of the year. Treloar is up and down and not proven like Priddis.

    Tyler · 22/05/2015 at 15:56

    Good trades if you have the cash. And Priddis

    wombat · 22/05/2015 at 16:20

    Thatta boy….chase last weeks points!!

jason · 22/05/2015 at 15:40

who to get rid of… oxley or mcintosh?

    Someeone Else · 22/05/2015 at 15:49

    IMO Oxley, his BE is higher and with Lever on the bubble and with good JS its time to cut him. McIntosh could be the upgrade target for Smith when he returns..

      jason · 22/05/2015 at 15:50

      yeah its a tough one, because i am ranked 300th atm..
      so wondering weather mcintosh can score similarly to oxley for a couple of rounds..

        mattforrest8 · 22/05/2015 at 16:06

        no, go mcintosh. my philosophy is get rid of the players that are going to score lower. This week for me it was a question of either Lumumba or Rich out, and I chose Lumumba as Rich is more likely to score a ton. Easy way to decide who to trade this way, unless you have a player with a huge breakeven against a player with a negative. however, both these players have a realistic chance of making their breakevens this week.

    Tyler · 22/05/2015 at 15:58

    Ox is at the top of his price cycle while Kmac still has a week or so of going up. If you have to play one of them though get rid of Kmac and keep Oxley for now

      jason · 22/05/2015 at 16:06

      atm, i'm leading towards ox. i think that both him and mcintosh will score similarly from now (i hope).. gonna run the risk for this week anyway and play goodes on the ground, then next week upgrade to brodie smith

Ryan · 22/05/2015 at 15:42

Is T.Mithcell a top 6 forward?
whats everyones thought on his output from here on??

    baggyizzle · 22/05/2015 at 16:14

    I feel that Tom Mitchell was worth the risk last week. 460k is too much of a risk on him – Youve missed the boat.

    I got him in and feel that if he doesn't hold his spot I at least would make a quick 100k to upgrade to a Roughie

    Kev · 22/05/2015 at 16:21

    JS will always hang over him so it depends if you want to take the punt or not. 460k for his current output is a bargain though. Looking ahead, Swans have a great draw over the next 2 months, playing hawks twice and port as the only teams of note

    Holty · 22/05/2015 at 17:22

    I think most will agree he is capaple of finishing top 6. Problem is, and as Lek pointed out, will he be in Sydneys best 22 by seasons end? I grabbed him last week and was happy but that is the only concern for him.

Glenn · 22/05/2015 at 15:42

Any Adelaide watchers, does Lever play pure Key Position? or does he work off his opponent a bit?

    Tyler · 22/05/2015 at 15:54

    I think he is playing as the 3rd tall in defence, and hopefully he doesn't play on Jeremy Cameron or Cam McCarthy too much.

lol · 22/05/2015 at 15:48

Brown to Docherty
V-Berg to Lever


Vberg to Lever
Hogan to Rocky?

if I do the first one I will have to field either brown or Lever for a week

    Crowmagnon · 22/05/2015 at 17:48

    The second one.

tomp · 22/05/2015 at 15:48

do we think Bailey Dale has good job security? starting on field this week

my trades depend a heap on whether or not I downgrade next week.

Hally · 22/05/2015 at 15:49

Thinking of bringing in Dayne Beams instead of Rockliff this week, thoughts?

    Redgumwon · 23/05/2015 at 12:41

    I like it I'm thinking of bring in both

      DonkeyCock · 23/05/2015 at 22:34

      crazy, get rocky unless he has a stinker this week… then wait.
      you've missed beams already, there's some real value just sitting around the mid 450k's at the moment.
      round 10 onwards the big boys come out to play!

Wattsieesq · 22/05/2015 at 15:50

Question for the community. I'm punting Oxley. Do I go down to Lever or up to Hiberrd? I'm going for overall rank.

    Kev · 22/05/2015 at 16:25

    If you're chasing overall Watts chase the points and go Hibbo

      JMG · 22/05/2015 at 16:38

      Hibberd been ordinary but as I’ve owned him from start hoping he comes good. Have u got TMac, I’d get him if not

Barney · 22/05/2015 at 15:51

Hi Patch. What’s your thoughts on Stevie J this week????

    wombat · 22/05/2015 at 16:19

    What’s your thoughts on pointless articles?

      Barney · 22/05/2015 at 16:20

      Had a bad Wombat???

      Hungry Hawk · 22/05/2015 at 23:46

      You're an asset Wombat. What do you actually positively contribute to this community?

    Mister_Spock · 22/05/2015 at 16:45

    Thinking about him too. Will get his break even this week, but will struggle to crack the ton against Carlton too – only done it once in his career.

Joe · 22/05/2015 at 15:52

What’s everyone’s thoughts on yeo and McGovern??

    Traderlyf · 22/05/2015 at 16:13

    i got yeo in this week, his named in the guts as well 😀

      Beady Eye · 22/05/2015 at 18:45

      Not worried the return of Selwood will affect his role?

Girdle · 22/05/2015 at 15:53

I’m just posting so American Magpie can shout his critique at me.

    Timmy · 22/05/2015 at 16:49

    Ha Ha

      AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 23/05/2015 at 01:06

      LOL pathetic….thought Jock site was cool …….guess not??? Just a bunch of thugs!!!! Just opinion.

        Budstar · 23/05/2015 at 02:21

        ^^^ are you serious, it just so happens your the most opinionated on here!! So many of your comments on here are ridiculous, telling people 'are you high' which is unwarranted and uncalled for. Your my nomination for 'tool of the week' this week. Just an opinion

        Girdle · 24/05/2015 at 07:42

        Magpie, there’s a difference between constructive criticism of others’ selections and just plain mockery. We don’t all share your opinion on every player. How boring would it be if we all had the same team? Just tone it down a touch when giving advice. Thanks Champ

baggyizzle · 22/05/2015 at 15:57

I can't get into the Rockliff Hype

Don't get me wrong, I am looking to get him in the next couple of weeks but everyone has this assumption that he is a must this week.

Hasn't broken a ton yet (i know he's been injured and knocked out cold) BE of 79, I think he will average low 100's.

Plenty of other mids that i'd suggest getting in this week over him. Or improve a different line, Rookie mids are doing great guns

    Tyler · 22/05/2015 at 16:04

    Many people agree with you. But you simply can't ignore the fact he was over 700k at the start of the year. I will be holding off till next week at least, just because I think my rookies can still outscore him this week and I don't see any point to having him on the bench

      Kev · 22/05/2015 at 16:32

      Can see both sides of the coin here.

      Think back to the start of the year and most coaches would have ether had him in their initial team or had a plan to bring him in after a price drop. He's not at 100% fitness yet but has bottomed out in price (maybe dropping another 10-15k). Can grab him for VBerg this week who is gonna bleed cash while that 37 stays in his system, happy to hold Rocky for now and accept a few sub 100 scores and if the SC Gods are kind, he'll get back to pumping out the Ablett-esque scores after the byes

      Jarryd · 22/05/2015 at 16:42

      I'm in the same boat he hasn't proved yet that he can crack the ton this year especially with the talent that is in that midfield now. If he comes out and hits 120 this week he only goes up 10k and I can handle that knowing that his output is still at the premium level

    SCaddict · 22/05/2015 at 17:46

    Yes Parker is the bigger priority for me this week.

    But if Rocky bangs out a 120 plus this weekend I'll be counting down the seconds until Supercoach reopens for business on Sunday night ha ha.

Mathew · 22/05/2015 at 15:59

Love this article.

Where does Andrews rate in defense since he is a defender not a forward in SC?

Andy · 22/05/2015 at 16:02

How is everyones trade numbers going ? I have 19 left after bringing in T.Mac and Rocky this week

Mac · 22/05/2015 at 16:03

Not sold on Lever. Thoughts on trading in Dale a week early?

    Mathew · 22/05/2015 at 16:09

    Brave move considering if he gets dropped it will hurt you. Always be careful when pulling this type of move.

    Ben · 22/05/2015 at 16:28

    After trading Glenn in a week early, just don't do it. Unless its a high profile rookie, maybe, but for a player i've never heard off in Dale before this week, way to risky.

      Jimbo · 22/05/2015 at 16:41

      Good call Ben. The Community would be wise in going back to NAB challenge and look to which rookies played well and also have a look back over Barron Von Crows preseason rookie watch articles.

        Girdle · 24/05/2015 at 09:03

        Are the rookie articles limited only to pre-season?

Liam · 22/05/2015 at 16:14

Need your help community.
Rocky or docherty???
Thinking of bringing in Rocky after his bye.

    Ben · 22/05/2015 at 19:51

    Rocky > Docherty

wombat · 22/05/2015 at 16:17


    WombatsFC · 23/05/2015 at 11:03

    Dude get a new name or a new attitude.

Mac · 22/05/2015 at 16:17

Dom Tyson out of Melbourne Squad, does this mean we should hold Vandenberg becuase he will see more midfield time?

    Tyler · 22/05/2015 at 17:10

    He may get more midfield time, but until that 37 gets outta his price cycle, he won't make much and tyson will be back soon anyway. Should be the first player out of your team this week

r2d2 · 22/05/2015 at 16:22

Current mid ….. Fyfe Pendles Lewis danger Parker Griffen Cripps CEY (vandenberg Krak lambert ) just vandenberg out for lever for me (via Mckenzie or saad )…… Could bring in another premo def but want to conserve trades … But not sure ! Thoughts ?

Jonesy · 22/05/2015 at 16:23

Start Oxley or Saad on field?

    Tyler · 22/05/2015 at 17:11


r2d2 · 22/05/2015 at 16:24

Like look of Amon too …. But high sub risk ,, kid can play , could get him early ….ballsy but very dangerous

    Tyler · 22/05/2015 at 17:17

    Not ballsy. Silly more like it at the moment. Good chance to be dropped in the next few weeks and even if he isn't he will probably still get subbed

Tom · 22/05/2015 at 16:30

Looking at two trades this week!

Lumumba —> Bob Murphy
Vandy —> Rocky

Only 19 Trades left is a worry tho, I'm playing for league wins and this week i'm up against the top of the table!

Cheers Tom

Shayne · 22/05/2015 at 16:32

If i was to trade out 1 of Lumumba or Oxley for lever who should it be?

    Ben · 22/05/2015 at 19:51

    I wouldn't trade either for Lever

Dan · 22/05/2015 at 16:34

Who should start on my field, Saad or Ellis-Yolmen?

    Francis · 22/05/2015 at 16:50

    You can't play both? I would go Ellis-Yolmen

Riley · 22/05/2015 at 16:36

Anyone worth a look at in defence? Trading out lumumba this week!

    jason · 22/05/2015 at 16:47

    wait a couple of weeks for brodie smith..

      jason · 22/05/2015 at 16:48

      or luke hodge next week

Jimbo · 22/05/2015 at 16:37

any validity in keeping Judd. I initially picked him as bloke I thought could average 105 and get me to the byes or just beyond and then upgrade him to a solid fallen premo. Is Judd to a Rocky to sideways?

    JMG · 22/05/2015 at 16:41

    I’d rather up a rookie to Rocky and worry about Judd later. I’ve got Griffen like many others who us crap but holding until byes and hoping he pump out a reasonable score til then (please SC Gods please!!)

    SCaddict · 22/05/2015 at 17:31

    Hard to see Juddy in most teams best 8 mids so if he's your optimal trade bait to bring in Rocky right now I wouldn't hesitate myself.

    Like Griffen it just hasn't worked out as many hoped so it's probably healthiest to end the relationship sooner rather than later and just move on to a proven elite.

    Saying all that Juddy does have a very gettable BE of 77 tonight so if you have other issues to deal with this round you could put that move on the back burner for a week or two.

jarryd · 22/05/2015 at 16:39

who is the most necessary premium to get in this week

    Francis · 22/05/2015 at 16:51


    SCaddict · 22/05/2015 at 17:29

    Parker or Rocky.

    If you have TBC then he could be worth upgrading this week as there's a good selection of ruck premos at bargain prices right now.

JMG · 22/05/2015 at 16:44

Thanks for the article Patch I enjoy reading each week. Well done last week for giving everyone the heads up of Cripps and Hogan late outs, you did this before many other websites!
My query is I can emergency loophole Clark and Cripps tonight but should I bother?

    JMG · 22/05/2015 at 16:45

    Or just put em straight on ground. Choosing 2 out of Cripps, CEY or Miller on ground in mids, Clark v Bellchambers for fwd

      Tyler · 22/05/2015 at 17:19

      If you can loophole them, go for it. If you do it properly it is always worth it

Mister_Spock · 22/05/2015 at 16:49

After some last minute advice Community.

I've got the option of trading out either Ryan Griffen for either T Mitchell, Kieren Jack OR Rory Sloane to Adam Treloar.

Both will be essentially sideways trades and I would really like to hold on to Sloane, but he's still looking like being out for at least 3 more weeks. Every man and his dog either has or will be getting in Titch, so thinking Jack and Treloar are PODs, but also pretty risky…

tomp · 22/05/2015 at 16:55

is it dumb to hold onto Vandenberg?

    Juzzy · 23/05/2015 at 00:11

    Not dumb at all. I will probably trade him this round but if I had a better option I would keep him.
    He has the round 13 bye and I am getting flashbacks to Dom Tyson last year…
    Maybe I will keep him ….

      Poloko48 · 24/05/2015 at 18:37

      Juzzy you're flashbacks are very accurate – a nice 131 from VDB, unfortunately traded him out last week for Treloar, I guess time will tell but possibly not my best move….

Sam · 22/05/2015 at 17:06

If we were to upgrade oxaly. Who should we upgrade to? It can be anyone

Liam · 22/05/2015 at 17:07

Vandenberg out Lever in community? via Saad swing from def to mid

    John_Q_Smith · 22/05/2015 at 17:16

    I like it if you don't have the coin to upgrade Vanders instead. He needs to go this week and Lever has pretty decent job security although he might not have the scoring potential of some of the gun rookies so far this year.

      Liam · 22/05/2015 at 17:19

      Only 96k so not enough cash to upgrade, however i could go B.Smith to lever then upgrade vandenberg?

        John_Q_Smith · 22/05/2015 at 17:53

        I think you have to hold onto Smith as everyone will have him after his round 11 bye and you are locking in a massive loss trading him out now. I think going Vanders to Lever this week is the safe bet with a mind to maybe fix some other holes in your side with the extra coin or keeping it for round 12 and going for a multiple upgrade.

        Crowmagnon · 22/05/2015 at 17:57

        Don't trade Smith out. half of supercoaches will be getting him IN soon. I'm looking forward to downgrading Oxley to him in a couple of weeks.

John_Q_Smith · 22/05/2015 at 17:19

Any Tigers fans with an ear to the ground on when Lambert will be back (AFL website saying round 10 or 12) and whether he will slot straight back into the team? I'm in the awkward situation of having Lever already and not enough cash to get rid of Vanders to a Rocky-type so a downgrade to Lambert could fix a lot of problems. All I need is him playing by round 12 (that bye week is tricky) and have all the bench cover I could possibly want currently and really wouldn't mind a loophole option.

    Tylo · 23/05/2015 at 13:52

    Wont slot straight back in, battling with 5-6 other players for only 2 spots so will need to show some form first.

Paule · 22/05/2015 at 17:30

ok community do I go Vandenberg / Hogan to Rockyand and hair hat priddus or get Parker insted of Pridus?
What r your thoughts?

    Crowmagnon · 22/05/2015 at 17:59

    Parker is better value at the moment.

Paule · 22/05/2015 at 17:33

oh and patch I see you have named Tippet in the fwd line, did you mean Tarrant?
PS great write up mate Thanks

Spooners · 22/05/2015 at 17:34

Betts or Goddard for Hogan, who would be the better option?

    Paule · 22/05/2015 at 17:36

    i would go goddard, I dont think eddie can keep going like this all year. Goddard is a proven SC champion

      I N Pieman · 22/05/2015 at 17:43

      Agree Paule. I’d see Betts as someone you’d need to trade again

    SCaddict · 22/05/2015 at 17:58

    Probably Goddard as Eddie's purple patch could dry up at any point.

    But frankly you are paying substantial overs for both of these guys so I'd actually conserve your cash and bring in someone who is discounted right now like a Buddy or Ziebell or alternatively upgrade a mid to either a Parker, Rocky or Stevie J type.

    Making your dollar go as far as humanly possible is often key to Supercoach success.

Mitch · 22/05/2015 at 17:44

Guys need help!!!

Team is
backs – shaw oxley newnes kolojasni (however you spell it) mcintosh, saad, n. brown hamling
mids – fyfe, pendles, beams, selwood, parker, griffen, mller, cripps, vanbenberg, yolmen, mckenzie,
rucks – goldy, maric
fwds – swan, goddard, d.martin, gray, tarrant, krakour, salem, m.clark

with only 60k in the bank i need to cull someone to make some cash for a upgrade which im really unsure on
looking to bring in rocky in a week or 2 when he shows a decent score

Cant make up my mind if Lever is the real deal?
24 trades left


    Mitch · 22/05/2015 at 17:46

    Was thinking vandenberg out, swing saad to mids then get lever but like having saad in defense

      John_Q_Smith · 22/05/2015 at 18:01

      I think that Vanders must go this week and Lever is the only real option unless you really want to put your plums on the table and do something like trade in a Stretch (pending selection), Dale or Amon (again, pending selection). I can see why you want to keep Saad down back but you could use the extra cash to do something like Brown and Vanders out for Lever and Rockliff.

Nicholas · 22/05/2015 at 17:46

Hey Community I have a dilemma this week with only scoring a 2,101 last week and I currently have 21 trades.
Here is my team, not sure what to do this week.
Back- Shaw, Taylor, Oxley, Ibbotson, McIntosh, McKenzie (Lever, Hamling)
Mid- Fyfe, Priddis, Selwood, Griffen, Lewis, Miller, Cripps, Krakouer (Vandenberg, Saad, Ellis-Yolmen)
Ruck- Goldstein, Naitanui ( Read)
Forward- Swan, Goddard, Gray, Martin, Franklin, Tarrant ( Hogan, Clark)
I am currently ranked 8,879 and would really appreciate any advice what to do this week.
Was thinking of Rocky or Parker this week but I only have a lousy $150,300 in the bank.
Thinking of going vand to rockliffe and oxley to a rookie via dpp to generate some cash.This leaves me with 260k for double upgrade next week. Which rookie would i bring inlooking at dale from wstb and ellis from richmond. I could even downgrade hogan or ibbotson instead if its better to keep oxley.
Thanks for your help.

    Paule · 22/05/2015 at 18:32

    Ive got the same rookies as you except in def, I got rid of Vandenberger and hogan this week as they have no more cash to make. Im keeping Oxley this week because I believe he will score ok. Id definitely go Vandenberg to Rocky and maybe Hogan to McInnes. West coast are playing the saints and he should score well.
    Good luck mate hope it helps

      Nicholas · 22/05/2015 at 18:45

      mabe i will go to leslie not sure about his js

    Nicholas · 22/05/2015 at 19:12

Adsy · 22/05/2015 at 17:55

What's more important this week? (Rank 1800 overall)
1. Side/upgrading Griffen for ?? (can you give me a name under 600k?) and VBerg > Lever (DPP)
2. Oxley > Lever and Vberg > Rocky

So basically I'm tossing up whether to keep Oxley and hope he comes somewhere close to his BE so I don't lose coin, but then miss out on Lever, making Oxley an upgrade rather than a downgrade in coming weeks. OR keep Griffen who I've had a gutful of and lock in Rocky at possibly his lowest price, leaving more money for maybe a McDonald>Oxley next week perhaps. Any suggestions? Cheers!

    Adsy · 22/05/2015 at 17:59

    Sorry I don't miss out on Lever in Option 1, but no one else seems to jump out in the next week or two down back for a downgrade anyway.

      Tyler · 22/05/2015 at 19:05

      How many trades do you have?

        Adsy · 22/05/2015 at 19:14

        23 at the moment. Gotta continue to trade with my team. Lots of cash cows I need to cull. About 90k in the bank.

          Tyler · 22/05/2015 at 19:47

          Yeah ok well I would go option 1. Griffin imo has to go now. He is like an under performing under performing premo. Yes the worst is probably behind him, but I don't see him getting heaps better. Trade him out for a player like Parker, Selwood or another under performing premo. See if you can get Rocky next week or wait till byes, and cull some rooks

        Adsy · 22/05/2015 at 19:42

        23 trades. Late decision but ended up going for Option 1, and sidegraded Griffen for Rocky, along with VBerg to Lever. Makes me some important coin for next couple of upgrades. Hope it doesn't bite me!

          Dean · 24/05/2015 at 20:22

          It bite you VERY hard trading out Griffen. So did trading out Vandenberg for another rookie, especially a high priced rookie at that.

          How ever most including myself who traded out vanderberg for a premo such as Rockliff or Parker, I chose to go Parker as his B/E was ridiculously low, his price will now be close to when he started so im not concerned about making this trade.

          I was also going to trade out Oxley for Lever but chose against that as defence is very volatile this year, choosing to keep Oxley might be a FANTASTIC decision over time as defence players are scoring all over the place apart from Shaw & McDonald if you were lucky enough to chose him from the start…

Donavan · 22/05/2015 at 17:57

Like the communities opinion-

OUT – Vandenberg & Oxley IN – Tom McDonald & Dale (and gain a fwd/mid swing set)


No trade this week.

If no trade then Vandenberg is on the bench, so points gain will be McDonald over Oxley.

medadsson · 22/05/2015 at 18:00

Hi community. Can anyone tell me what is Nathan Krakouers' status? Has he been elevated off rookie list for a LTI or if he is still a rookie isn't he limited to a certain number of games? Would appreciate any advice.

    Tylo · 23/05/2015 at 13:54

    Elevated for Polec I believe.

Glorin · 22/05/2015 at 18:00

Mumford, Jacobs or Maric ?

    Donavan · 22/05/2015 at 18:08

    Maric – starting to put some scores together, and with the return of Deledio & form return of Cothin, I think he and the Tigers can put together a good block of games.

      Glorin · 22/05/2015 at 18:16

      Thanks Donavan.

      Was leaning that way. Love Mummy, but know its only a matter of time before he as some time out and Jacobs, just not sure.

Jacko · 22/05/2015 at 18:01

Do I trade swallow?

    Donavan · 22/05/2015 at 18:05

    Yes, I dont see him being a top 10 mid, or increasing in value considerably, there are better cheaply priced options that can be had.

Liam · 22/05/2015 at 18:09

Looking ahead to byes, is it the top 18 scorers for each bye round that count towards your overall score?

    medadsson · 22/05/2015 at 18:20

    Yes Liam, top 18 regardless of position but I believe must be placed on field or emergency.

      Liam · 22/05/2015 at 18:52

      Cheers mate

Luke · 22/05/2015 at 18:24

Will be keeping Salem this week, allows the loophole of clark and hogan. Feel Clark could go big tonight against a very average Carlton team. Could also put out another 50ish score and go missing for a half.

ThatDamnRascal · 22/05/2015 at 18:28

Tonight's game I'm looking to Loophole Cripps and Clark using Heeney and Lambert if they don't fire can replace with krakour and Tarrant to take their place.
Good luck all may the supercoach gods me with you all this round

MOC · 22/05/2015 at 18:34

Franklin… YES OR NO?!?

    Tyler · 22/05/2015 at 19:21


      Donavan · 22/05/2015 at 19:37

      Yes, but next week

        MOC · 22/05/2015 at 19:38

        He seems to play well against hawthorn though which is why I was getting him this week

          Poloko48 · 24/05/2015 at 18:41

          Gee I really hope you didn't end up getting him in!

    Tophawk · 24/05/2015 at 20:27

    Nahhh… He is too busy with Jesinta at the moment. Please call back later………LOL

    I am staying away from him, UNTIL he puts out a decent performance. We are still waiting and a third of the season has gone.

YellowNBlack · 22/05/2015 at 18:38

hi all,

really need help to decide wether to trade or not??

thinking of TBC to Parker.. is it worth losing the ruck cover?

would leave me $119k and 21 trades..

appreciate any help!


    Glorin · 22/05/2015 at 19:17

    Do it. Adding a premo with cash left over. To easy.

    Donavan · 22/05/2015 at 19:41

    Definately do it. Parker will give you extra points over your M8 every week, whereas you may not need back-up, and if so probably only once, and you may be able to trade around it.

      YellowNBlack · 23/05/2015 at 12:07

      thanks guys appreciate the advice!

Mitch · 22/05/2015 at 18:45

Vandenberg out for who?

Team is
backs – shaw oxley newnes kolojasni (however you spell it) mcintosh, saad, n. brown hamling
mids – fyfe, pendles, beams, selwood, parker, griffen, mller, cripps, vanbenberg, yolmen, mckenzie,
rucks – goldy, maric
fwds – swan, goddard, d.martin, gray, tarrant, krakour, salem, m.clark

    Tyler · 22/05/2015 at 19:26

    How much cash do you have?

      Mitch · 22/05/2015 at 19:30


        Tyler · 22/05/2015 at 19:37

        The best thing you could do for your team right now is go vandenberg to lever, and make some cash for another upgrade later on. Not really anyone worth picking up under 380 that isn't a rookie.

          Mitch · 22/05/2015 at 19:40

          Switch who to mids?

            Tyler · 22/05/2015 at 20:01

            Probably Mcintosh and try and swing him back to defence in the next few rounds

Nicholas · 22/05/2015 at 19:06

start miller or cey on field?

    Donavan · 22/05/2015 at 19:42

    I am going Miller, only because CEY is back from injury. Miller has also been scoring well in recent weeks.

    Nicholas · 22/05/2015 at 19:47


Simon Temple · 22/05/2015 at 19:07

Good evening Community. Great work Patch, love the short, short version. Looking to trade out Lonie but not sure who to bring in. Thinking about McInnes or Dale but he has only played one game and is a big risk. The other trade I am thinking is Van Berlo to Rocky or Parker. Leaning towards Parker but will leave me nothing in the salary cap. Thoughts?

    medadsson · 22/05/2015 at 19:12

    I'd go Parker (have Parker). Whilst Rockliff has had bad luck with injuries that have affected his scores he, from a Supercoach perspective, now has to contend with Beams and others not previously at Brisbane. With Parker, after a slow start he is continuing on from last year in much the same team Supercoach wise. Rockliff is great value and is surely tempting and you certainly wouldnt lose money on him at his current price.

Tophawk · 22/05/2015 at 19:13

Who do put on field this round between Miller and Saad? Any suggestions?


    Tyler · 22/05/2015 at 19:29

    Miller. Has had some very good scores with all gold coast's injuries

Tophawk · 22/05/2015 at 19:14

Sorry! Meant Miller or Krakouer.

    FUAFSAH1 · 23/05/2015 at 00:52

    You are a fcking retard fggt!!!!

Liam · 22/05/2015 at 19:15

Anyone starting Mitch Clark tonight?

    Tyler · 22/05/2015 at 19:30

    I'm loopholing him, much safer but hope he pulls out a good one

      AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 22/05/2015 at 19:48

      I'm loopholing too

Dave · 22/05/2015 at 19:17

Is Joel selwood likely to be a top 8 midfielder from here on out? Thinking of getting him in for vandenberg

    Ben · 22/05/2015 at 19:50

    Every chance to be one, value at his price

    Derek · 22/05/2015 at 21:50

    100% top 8 midfielder

    Glorin · 22/05/2015 at 22:49

    I have had him from the start and his lack of points so far is really starting to give me the sh1ts. On past record he is value. On this year I would be looking elsewhere.

Don · 22/05/2015 at 19:18

Is it worth having both JPK and parker?

    Tyler · 22/05/2015 at 19:34

    The only reason not to have them both is because they both have a round 12 bye. Otherwise, go for it! They are both very good players and they both score very well, week in week out.

    Ben · 22/05/2015 at 19:48

    why not, both guns

    SCaddict · 22/05/2015 at 22:42

    Only if you like winning Supercoach games!

Ryan · 22/05/2015 at 19:23

vandenberg > rockliff
griffen > t.mitchell


vandenberg > parker/priddis
salem > b.dale or just the one trade above

    Ben · 22/05/2015 at 19:49

    vandenberg to rockliff only.

Stoner · 22/05/2015 at 19:34

any suggestions on Robbie Tarrant, how much cash does he have left to make?

    Ben · 22/05/2015 at 19:48

    hoping to keep him until his round 13 bye

    SCaddict · 22/05/2015 at 22:41

    Probably at least another $50K-$75K to be made so would hang on for at least another fortnight if not to his bye as Ben suggested.

Glenn · 22/05/2015 at 19:37

Krakouer or Clark on the field???? can't decide

    Ben · 22/05/2015 at 19:48


Nicholas · 22/05/2015 at 19:51

Hey Community I have a dilemma this week with only scoring a 2,101 last week and I currently have 21 trades.
Here is my team, not sure what to do this week.
Back- Shaw, Taylor, Oxley, Ibbotson, McIntosh, McKenzie (Lever, Hamling)
Mid- Fyfe, Priddis, Selwood, Griffen, Lewis, Miller, Cripps, Krakouer (Vandenberg, Saad, Ellis-Yolmen)
Ruck- Goldstein, Naitanui ( Read)
Forward- Swan, Goddard, Gray, Martin, Franklin, Tarrant ( Hogan, Clark)
I am currently ranked 8,879 and would really appreciate any advice what to do this week.
Was thinking of Rocky or Parker this week but I only have a lousy $150,300 in the bank.
Thinking of going vand to rockliffe and oxley to a rookie via dpp to generate some cash.This leaves me with 260k for double upgrade next week. Which rookie would i bring inlooking at LESLIE FROM GC and ellis from richmond. I could even downgrade hogan or ibbotson instead if its better to keep oxley.
Thanks for your help.

    Ethan · 22/05/2015 at 23:11

    corey ellis has some shady js on his hands

Tophawk · 22/05/2015 at 20:21

Aaahhhhh yes. Clarkie off to a very nice start!!

Even doing some ruckwork in the centre. Good boy. Keep it up mate!

    FUAFSAH1 · 23/05/2015 at 00:53

    No DUH good observation!!! Fcking tard!!! Thanks for the info not like we couldn't have looked it up!! Genius!

      FUAFSAH1 · 23/05/2015 at 00:54

      @ tomhawk fcking thinks he knows it all!!!

        FUAFSAH1 · 23/05/2015 at 00:55

        what a fcking D'Bag!!!

brook · 22/05/2015 at 21:25

is lever likely to lose his spot when brodie smith come back in? all the players who went out in R6 (when lever came in) are now back in the side, except richard douglas and he plays a completely different position.

Derek · 22/05/2015 at 21:52

Rocky is playing injured. Huge risk. He will score ok but don’t think there are any huge scores. Not going to get him until he is over his framed ribs.

    Paul Walnuts · 22/05/2015 at 21:57

    Playing injured and scoring 90+, look what happened to Parker after a few weeks after concussion – The biggest bargain in SC History !!

      Derek · 22/05/2015 at 22:18

      I’m interested in getting Rocky because he is cheap, but only for that reason.

    FootyFanatic · 22/05/2015 at 22:21

    Yes he may be playing injured, but he has still laid 18 tackles over the last two weeks which shows he's not backing away from the contest.

    Dean · 24/05/2015 at 20:41

    Is 130+ enough mate…lol

TheCompletePackage · 22/05/2015 at 22:17

Thinking of bringing Cornes in this week. Thoughts?

    Derek · 22/05/2015 at 22:37

    Might be worth a punt, either him of maybe Zac Dawson

    Liam · 22/05/2015 at 22:50

    Would wait til next week mate

    Crowmagnon · 22/05/2015 at 23:00


Derek · 22/05/2015 at 22:34

Very happy with Simpson tonight

    Ben · 23/05/2015 at 02:29

    I'm sure you were also happy with him the past few weeks aswell

      Rick Grimes · 23/05/2015 at 04:24

      Them grapes look sour.

Sam · 22/05/2015 at 22:35

Take Clarke's 90 or go with krakour or hogan?

    Crowmagnon · 22/05/2015 at 23:11

    Take the points and run.

Connor · 22/05/2015 at 22:49

What’s the big deal with T. Mac?? I assume this is Trent McKenzie? Hasn’t and doesn’t look like hitting the ton so why is everyone suggesting to get him in?

    Glenn · 22/05/2015 at 22:50

    Tom McDonald mate Tom McDonald

    AMERICANMAGPIE1 · 22/05/2015 at 23:05

    Flip a coin

Ethan · 22/05/2015 at 23:07

clark's 90, tarrant or CEY

The Ranger · 22/05/2015 at 23:11

Clark got 89.
Loophole him in for Tarrant or Krak or not?

Paul · 22/05/2015 at 23:31

Tool of the week 'AmericanMagpie'

    dognino · 23/05/2015 at 00:20

    NO WAY!!! That's a ridiculous nomination !!! I'll just add some question marks into my random YELLING too???

    FUAFSAH1 · 23/05/2015 at 00:57

    Skippy of the year PAUL!!!

Donavan · 22/05/2015 at 23:31

Gotta love the loophole.

Loopholing Simpson & Clark, leaving Cripps on the pine.

JDP · 22/05/2015 at 23:41

VDB to Ellis for coin a good trade or keep him????

Youngy5 · 23/05/2015 at 00:07

Buddy or the Bont?

    SCaddict · 23/05/2015 at 00:42

    Buddy would be my selection. Have the Blues and Suns coming up shortly and looks busting at the seams to deliver that monster score we all know he is capable of.

    QWERT · 23/05/2015 at 08:45


BundyBear · 23/05/2015 at 01:04

Breaking news. Rocky is a late out

    Tom · 23/05/2015 at 02:07

    Where did you hear that from?

      Rick Grimes · 23/05/2015 at 04:26

      Think he’s pulling your (Matthew) dick.

    cow roll · 23/05/2015 at 05:24

    been on the rum again hey Bundy?

    Crowmagnon · 23/05/2015 at 07:06

    Must have missed that 1am press conference.

Pieman74 · 23/05/2015 at 08:17

Lonie to Mc Innes and Van Berlo to Rocky


Sloane to Parker/JPK

Don’t have enough cash to trade Van Berlo to Parker

    Pieman74 · 23/05/2015 at 08:31

    What are the community’s thoughts about Kieren Jack as a POD to Rocky, Parker or JPK?

    QWERT · 23/05/2015 at 08:44

    Sloane to Parker….Rocky in a few weeks

QWERT · 23/05/2015 at 08:40

Hi all,

Very torn as to what to do…
Current backs: Gibson, Hibberd, Lumumba, Oxley, Mcintosh, saad, brown, mckenzie
Mids: Fyfe, pendles, lewis, beams, kennedy parker, cripps, ellisyolmen, miller, vandenberg.

Not sure whether to go Vandenberg to Shaw and mcintosh to lever
oxley to lever and vandenberg to priddis (or someone else in rd 13 for byes)

Any thoughts? Backline is pretty weak but would be last chance to get on Priddis

Ashley J · 23/05/2015 at 08:48

Krak or Robbie Tarrant on field?

QWERT · 23/05/2015 at 08:50


Mac · 23/05/2015 at 09:16

Take Clarks points or risk Hogan?

    Ashley J · 23/05/2015 at 09:37

    Take Clark

    QWERT · 23/05/2015 at 09:46

    Definitely take Clark's points

    CashCows · 23/05/2015 at 09:46

    Clark 89 or Tarrant?

Ashley J · 23/05/2015 at 09:37

Should I play Griffen or CEY?

    CashCows · 23/05/2015 at 09:51

    This was one of the reasons i said bye bye to griffen this week as the only place for him was on the bench

QWERT · 23/05/2015 at 09:46


CashCows · 23/05/2015 at 09:52

Thoughts on Mckenzie, Lever or Mcintosh on field ?? Also happy to see Kade pump out a decent score !

And should i take Clarks 89 or go with Tarrant

Jordo · 23/05/2015 at 10:10

Cripps points or krak?

    CashCows · 23/05/2015 at 10:32

    roll the dice on krak

Jack · 23/05/2015 at 10:15

Yeo or Birchall

    Ben · 23/05/2015 at 18:52


luke · 23/05/2015 at 10:30

Very happy with the 89 from clark as loophole. Now can put Salem on ground and have Fyfe as VC into Robbie Gray as C.

ATeam12345 · 23/05/2015 at 11:19

TBC or Tarrant on ground?

    carlashirley90 · 23/05/2015 at 11:43

    That's a tough one and its hard to say how Tarrent will go as I feel Freo will destroy Nth Melbourne but could be good for Tarrent ( many in 50's ) to deal with. But Tarrent most definantly can't be a floating defender and the real question is TBC avg 68 vs Tarrent

    I say this because TBC has been ultra consistent around the 65-75 range
    For me I think TBC to be safe

carlashirley90 · 23/05/2015 at 11:21

Every round I see the same questions about rookie scores should I take them? Or risk someone else…

If a forward or back rookie scores over 80 it's a no brainer to take that score

Personally I'm still happy with a 65-70 score from them but over 80 is real good

    CashCows · 23/05/2015 at 11:50

    It isn't always a no brainer, different opinions and views of the community, help reinforce or change a decision…personally i would not be happy with a 65-70 and even an 89 is touch and go against a player who has had a tons over geel and port..although averaging 78 over the last three

      carlashirley90 · 23/05/2015 at 12:24

      What rookie players do you have then down back and up forward that you expect to score over 80 every week then may I ask. It is a no brainer to take 80+ scores from rookies unless in the midfield, I understand if your team is in a losing position you need to take a punt on some one else but surely your not saying 80+ up forward or down back for rookies is average

      Example Clarke 89 last night, will people choose to loophole the score or risk Hogan or Tarrent to score better?
      Even if they do it won't be much better and if they don't it will be far less I reckon

brook · 23/05/2015 at 11:27

where is josh glenn this week? next week?

    TheCompletePackage · 23/05/2015 at 22:31

    What are you….a stalker?

carlashirley90 · 23/05/2015 at 11:31

brought in Treloar and Rockliff this week for TBC and Vanenberg, hope it pays off
What I expect from these two selections is 110+ for the rest of the year

How good is Blicavs 50 odd games and looking like a jet. It's a shame that Nic Nat and Blicavs share the same bye round.

Nic Nat can't find the pill enough and can't mark the ball this year, still avg 84 though for little impact is an upside?

    Tophawk · 23/05/2015 at 12:35

    Blicavs is a gun alright. I have Maric and Goldy as my main rucks and TBC as my back up. Each ruckman has the bye in a different round which is ideal. Blicavs is on my wish list, but probably next year.

      carlashirley90 · 23/05/2015 at 12:41

      Maric coming real good now hey good selections Goldy and Maric

Mac · 23/05/2015 at 12:03

Vandenberg to Treloar and have 100k over or go to Priddis and have literally nothing in the bank?

    carlashirley90 · 23/05/2015 at 12:20

    Saving money and still getting bang for buck is the aim of the game

      Mac · 23/05/2015 at 12:27

      So treloar? Will he be close to top 10 mid by season end though?

        carlashirley90 · 23/05/2015 at 12:35

        Not sure mate but I think Treloar and Priddis are of the same ilk (SuperCoach wise) and last week was a one off feast for Priddis
        Like my above comment I do believe Treloar can hit 110 for the rest of the year same as Priddis but saving 100k in the process is huge

        Can use that 100k on Tarrent or Oxely next week or bye round to get another fallen premium

          Poloko48 · 24/05/2015 at 18:47

          exactly what I've done carla, not the greatest start from Treloar but hoping for better!

Alex · 23/05/2015 at 12:28

Mcintosh or D MACKENZIE on field

    Tophawk · 23/05/2015 at 12:29

    hmmm. Tricky one. My gut says K Mac. D Mac was very poor last week and therefore slightly riskier option.


    Redgumwon · 23/05/2015 at 12:54

    McIntosh I think out of those two

Redgumwon · 23/05/2015 at 12:45

Just wondering what you guys think of these trades. Last night I traded out Cripps for Rocky. I've got Sloane on the bench injured and who knows for how long. I was going to hold him but now I'm thinking of trading. I have 21 trades left at the moment. I have $50,000 in cash. I'm thinking of trading Sloane for Beams and I will be left with 20 trades and $1,500 in cash. I'd love to hear what you guys have to say?

Derek · 23/05/2015 at 13:01

Via DPP and loopholes, I have to put 4 of the following on the field.









Any suggestions.

It’s great having so many players to chose from this week

    Mac · 23/05/2015 at 13:08

    Cloke, Saad, Miller, CEY/Krak

    Ben · 23/05/2015 at 13:11

    Miller, Ellis-Yolmen, Saad and Cloke. I'd avoid Lever, Mckenzie and Tarrant on field.

      Derek · 23/05/2015 at 13:28

      I only need 3.
      Going with Saad, Cloke but tossing up between CEY and Miller

        Redgumwon · 23/05/2015 at 13:29

        Miller he's been on fire of late

    Redgumwon · 23/05/2015 at 13:29

    Whoops put it in the wrong place. I'd go with Saad, Krak, Miller, CEY I'm thinking

    Doc2Drej · 23/05/2015 at 13:56

    Tarrant, Krak, CEY, Saad

Redgumwon · 23/05/2015 at 13:13

Saad, Krak, Miller, CEY I'm thinking

Mark · 23/05/2015 at 13:34

Dmac or Lever on field?
Which two on field out of griffen, miller and cey?
Pendles or fyfe as vc?
Who should score more points out f tarrant and hogan?

    Redgumwon · 23/05/2015 at 13:47

    Who is your captain?
    Griffen on
    Flip the coin on Hogan and Tarrant I'm not sure but would go with Tarrrant

Redgumwon · 23/05/2015 at 13:38

Who is your captain?
Griffen on
Flip the coin on Hogan and Tarrant I'm not sure but would go with Tarrrant

Doc2Drej · 23/05/2015 at 13:54

Traded out Vandenberg and Griffen this week for Parker and Rockliff. Last week I traded out Hogan, leaving me still with Salem, Clark, Tarrant, Krak, CEY, Saad, Brown, Oxley, Goodes and Heeney as the fattened rookies still in my team, along with mid-pricera such as Newnes, Higgins, Rich, Judd and Mitchell. The rest of my team is bench players like McKenzie, O’Brien and Lambert and premos like Shaw, Fyfe, Pendles, Shiel, Neale, Parker, Selwood, Rockliff, Goldy, Maric, Swan and Dusty.

I’ll look to trade out juddy next week and cull a cash cow depending on the rookies available.


Paul · 23/05/2015 at 14:57

Touk miller or daniel rich on field?

Mac · 23/05/2015 at 15:18

Yeah well Treloar is going terrible.

    Ben · 23/05/2015 at 18:54

    yeah 35 touches is a shit game, great comment

return of the v · 23/05/2015 at 16:34

Just want to get the size of my kahuna's out there Jock. Gone for Oxley to Lambert this week. 300k in the bank to upgrade to Cripps to Selwood and Ellis-Yolman to Beams next week. Bruyn manouvere people!!!

    Dean · 24/05/2015 at 20:51

    Ballsy move that didn't pay off at ALL as Selwood will be the next Rockliff not to mention injury…

medadsson · 23/05/2015 at 16:39

Supercoach Scores WCE v St Kilda??? Been sceptical for a long time about how reflective the Supercoach scoring is of a game result. St Kilda has amassed 1598 and WCE 1584 yet WCE has comprehensively beaten the Saints 131 to 78. Had a look at some of the stats. St Kilda with 18 scoring shots amassed 51 Score Assists. WCE with 31 scoring shots just 18? I also have a problem with tackles attracting too many points, Fair enough if a tackle ends in a turnover or free kick but I think it is commonly accepted that the team generally well beaten on the day lays more tackles as they are chasing the team with the ball. St Kilda had 87 recorded tackles to WCE 69. Yes I know the old argment will be 'go play DT or AFL Fantasy' if you want a stat driven game. No, I just want a scoring system that is a little more realistic which is not what it appears Supercoach has delivered on this occasion (and many others). Got the stats off Fox AFL site. Scores may change a little yet but sorry, they are BS. Update: Final scores WCE 1661 to St Kilda 1639. Hardly reflective.

    demon · 23/05/2015 at 17:00

    that's 51 clangers mate, they had 14 score assists

      medadsson · 23/05/2015 at 17:57

      Thanks demon, my mistake. Still scratching my head at overall scores but guess just will have to accept it.

        demon · 23/05/2015 at 18:01

        yeah I hear ya, eagles ahead on virtually every stat, and having 8 more goals and 15 less clangers you'd think they'd score a lot more than 22 extra

          TheCompletePackage · 23/05/2015 at 22:51

          Agreed…there are many instances that have me scratching my head. e.g. in R4 J Riewoldt gets over 100 sc points after scoring 0.4 – a full fwd whose job it is to score goals misses all (at least 4) of his shots on goal, the Tigers lose to Melbourne, and he's deemed to have had a big positive impact on the game. Go figure.

Barney · 23/05/2015 at 16:54

Nearly traded Griffen-glad I didn’t. 116 sc points before scaling.Oh that’s right it’s his on week-1 good then 1 bad

Tophawk · 23/05/2015 at 17:09

Wow. Pendles has come out smoking! 57 Fantasy and 47 SC points at quarter time. Got the V on him this week. Lets hope he can go really big today.

    Derek · 23/05/2015 at 17:30

    Raines tagging him in second Qtr. Gone quiet

      Tophawk · 23/05/2015 at 18:44

      Back big time in the third! Raines can only hold him for so long. 101 SC

Davo · 23/05/2015 at 17:11

should i take dangers 130? iv got C on fyfe so does my opponent. opponent has VC on pendles

    Tophawk · 23/05/2015 at 17:15

    Wait to see what Pendles ends up with. If he keeps up his scoring today he may go 160-170 SC points. If this happens, dont take the 130 and hope Fyfe goes huge as well tonight. That be the only chance you would have of getting on top of your opponent as he will obviously take pendles score. On the other hand, if Pendles falls asleep and ends up with around 100SC points, then you might take the 130 and run.

    Tough call. Cheers

      Davo · 23/05/2015 at 18:37

      100 at 3qrt time ill wait and see

Mitch · 23/05/2015 at 17:20

How does the loophole work?
Clark was my sub
Do I put salem on the ground and take Tarrant out and wait till end of round for Clark's score to count?

    Tulendeena · 23/05/2015 at 17:24


    If you substitute salem onto the ground for tarrant, you will get clark's score after Tarrant plays
    just make sure Tarrant is not emergency as well

Alex · 23/05/2015 at 17:43

Sidearse looking good, priddis doing well, pendles red hot, franklin might go to town, with only 2 trades next week what to do?

BundyBear · 23/05/2015 at 18:02

C on Lewis or Parker or Fyfe ?

    Tophawk · 23/05/2015 at 18:41


KKP · 23/05/2015 at 18:19

Who to trade Swallow out for community:
Mundy Hannaberry Lewis Mitchell Watson Rockliff
Need help guys

    Davo · 23/05/2015 at 18:38


    Tophawk · 23/05/2015 at 18:41

    Luke Parker. At $516K, still very good value.

Mick · 23/05/2015 at 18:39

what's pendles on?

    Tophawk · 23/05/2015 at 18:40

    114 Fantasy and 101 Supercoach

    KKP · 23/05/2015 at 18:46


Youngy5 · 23/05/2015 at 18:46

If Pendles scores 150 + is it worth me trading in a nonplaying rookie, because I have the vc on him and My 2 non playing players Read and Hugh Goddard have already played?

Maybe trading vandenberg down to Josh Glenn, just to cash in Pendles points?

    Ben · 23/05/2015 at 18:54

    waste of a trade

    Tophawk · 23/05/2015 at 18:55

    That is extremely dangerous and short sighted IMO. Are you prepared to use a trade to capture perhaps an additional 100 points?

    I would only contemplate this move if you do not have a non playing rookie who is simply being rested this week. (general soreness etc) and he is a target by other Supercoach players as well. There is no real guarantee Glenn will be picked next week or for the foreseeable future for that matter.

    Tread carefully here Youngy!


Tony · 23/05/2015 at 18:54

Does anybody know swans score ? Thanks

    Tophawk · 23/05/2015 at 18:58

    115 Fantasy and 80 SC points. Looks like a few clangers has cost him badly in Supercoach.

    KKP · 23/05/2015 at 18:58


tomp · 23/05/2015 at 19:06

priddis as Captain or take a chance on Fyfe?

    tomp · 23/05/2015 at 19:06

    priddis scored 130

JDP · 23/05/2015 at 19:11

Rockliff or Parker

cow roll · 23/05/2015 at 19:13

wha's peddle's score?

    House · 23/05/2015 at 19:15

    127 still got more points to add!

    cow roll · 23/05/2015 at 19:16


House · 23/05/2015 at 19:14

Do u take pendels as skipper??????????

    cow roll · 23/05/2015 at 19:22

    the weather is very nice in perth, Do you think Fyfe's team mates can overrun their NM oppositions? if yes, then take Ped's score.
    I want Peds to get above 140 before i take his score but i'm a risk taker.

      House · 23/05/2015 at 19:27

      Too late cow roll. i have taken Pendels already. Only had Heeney(left to put as captain). Im not being greedy this week. good luck to you with Fyfe (but not too much).

Ben Bretel · 23/05/2015 at 19:41

ahaha laughing at everyone who traded griffen

    Tophawk · 23/05/2015 at 20:34

    I did.

    Traded Griffin out for Parker.

    Ohh well, Parkie is only 75 SC points at half time. But hey, you get that dont u. LOL

Mick · 23/05/2015 at 20:24

Whats Fyfe on?

    Tophawk · 23/05/2015 at 20:36

    Not one of his better starts to a game. Late in the second, Fyfe is on 43 SC points.

    Tophawk · 23/05/2015 at 20:52

    Fyfe is coming good. 68 SC points at half time.

    Vince the quince · 24/05/2015 at 00:04

    Meth and coke apparently Crowley is his dealer

Tophawk · 23/05/2015 at 20:31

What the hell is going on with Buddy? I dont have him, but it looks like he has taken his "eye off the ball"…….I wonder why? LOL

    BundyBear · 23/05/2015 at 21:04

    My opposition has franklin. so as far as I am concerned franklin is doing well. LOL

      Kev · 24/05/2015 at 10:31

      Credit to Chip Frawley though

NickyV · 23/05/2015 at 21:24

Buddy, 27 at 3 QT and Goldstein less than 20 during the 3 Q! I have them both!

Tulendeena · 23/05/2015 at 22:16

46 Goldy Tarrant 34 unscaled

well well well…

Stickman · 23/05/2015 at 22:28

Forgot to take pendles vc score. Lucky Fyfe scored well. Still lost points though.

Derek · 23/05/2015 at 22:43

I’m pretty happy with my Defence this week,

Simpson 149

KK 110

Ibbotson 90

Newnes 92

Shaw 91

Saad 84

Currently on 2040 with Gray, Goddard & dusty to play

    holty · 23/05/2015 at 22:57

    good score and great defense. i was looking great until goldy and tarrant happened. still 1435/14/fyfe is still quite reasonable

    dognino · 23/05/2015 at 23:46

    Nice one Derek . 1809 for me , with Gray, rocky,beams, bontempelli and mcintosh to go. Fingers crossed I can finally break the 2100, haven't been able to get over it this season.

iamme · 23/05/2015 at 23:10

Tarrant and Goldy really messed things up tonight but 1734/18 with Gray,Goddard, Zorko and Rockcliff capt…. risky I know but he is capable of pulling a 160 or 170 so imo worth the gamble.

    Kev · 24/05/2015 at 10:30

    Capable yes, but he's not at full fitness. Gray a better choice IMO

chris · 23/05/2015 at 23:21

so this is the first year that i've been ranked highly (339th overall), usually a bit lower than that..
around about what score this round would i need do you think to maintain or improve ranks..?

currently sitting on 1634 with beams, goddard, lumumba, rance, gray and martin to play.. thoughts?

    Derek · 24/05/2015 at 08:47

    you will need to be around 2400 this week to hold your ranking

      Swans2012 · 24/05/2015 at 10:01

      I reckon your being a bit harsh Derek, I think 2300 will hold position or maybe even move up a bit, goldy and Tarrant would have dragged a lot of scores down.

        Derek · 24/05/2015 at 12:58

        There has been some good scores and not many poor. Maybe need 2350 if ranked in top 1,000 to hold position.

        I need 120 each from Gray, dusty and Goddard to get 2400

          BundyBear · 24/05/2015 at 13:25

          I think about 2343 should do it

            Derek · 24/05/2015 at 16:53

            Goddard only managed 76. Lucky to get much over 2340 now

Locked and Loaded · 23/05/2015 at 23:24

Take Fyfe’s 128 or use Gray as captain. If I take Fyfe I’ll be 29 behind opponent with an extra player to play?

    Phil · 24/05/2015 at 11:33

    Unless if your extra player is Relton Roberts take Fyfes score

      Locked and Loaded · 24/05/2015 at 12:38

      Lol cheers pal

TheCompletePackage · 23/05/2015 at 23:29

Goldy 44….just what I've been waiting for.

    Timmy · 24/05/2015 at 08:49

    Held off on him this week and it has paid off. BE of 148. I wonder what he is going to drop in price. Would love to get him around 500k

      Kev · 24/05/2015 at 10:28

      Will drop to 534k with a b.e of 173 next week according to fanfooty

        Timmy · 24/05/2015 at 12:42

        Nice. 40k drop. He should bounce back next week with a good score but will definitely hold off an extra week with a break even that high.

      Timmy · 24/05/2015 at 12:44

      I was so close to bringing him in. And then I saw his average of 77 v Freo.

    Swans2012 · 24/05/2015 at 09:55

    Yep licking lips

Jambo · 23/05/2015 at 23:58

I’m currently sitting at 1762 with Gray, Zorko, TMac, Krak and Maric. We shall see what happens…

    Jambo · 24/05/2015 at 00:09

    Correction, I sit at 1769

Brett · 24/05/2015 at 01:43

G’day community … thinking of upgrading t hunt as the punt hasn’t paid off !! Whom would you suggest or the order of t mac , houli and rance ?

Cheers for help

    Tyler · 24/05/2015 at 07:54

    Tmac, Houli, Rance

    Tophawk · 24/05/2015 at 09:50

    T Mac, then Houli and Rance. With the byes looking a lot of coaches need a few more guys out in round 11 to balance out the players for round 12 and 13. If you are in that situation, you could look at Sam Docherty or Liam picken. Blues and Dogs have byes in round 11.


Tophawk · 24/05/2015 at 09:47

Goldy (44) and Tarrant (36) had shockers last night. Just goes to show Sandi is not a spent force. I dont think Goldy had one "tap to advantage" last night. He will bounce back I reckon, and he will be 100K cheaper in the next week or two. Looks like Tarrant is going to spend next week on the pine so he can have a long hard think about that effort last night.

    Kev · 24/05/2015 at 10:24

    Tarrant won't last much longer in my team, regardless of last nights performance. Made 180k from him and with Lonie also facing the axe, might use him to upgrade first rather than Clark

Shane · 24/05/2015 at 11:42

With $266,900 in the kitty there’s a chance I can afford pendles and rance next week using cripps and lumumba! Fingers crossed.

Dave · 24/05/2015 at 13:40

Those who told us not to pick up Tom Rockliff…

    Damo · 24/05/2015 at 13:43

    My plan all week was to bring him in! I went Parker instead thinking Rockliff would score 90-100 this week, maybe increase $10000 and I'd pick him up next week. D'oh!

      Rick Grimes · 24/05/2015 at 14:44

      He will still be a bargain even if he scores 150. And you’ll be buying with confidence rather than taking a wild punt.

        Locked and Loaded · 24/05/2015 at 20:51

        Wild punt?? Choose words carefully. Rocky could never be a wild punt

    dognino · 24/05/2015 at 13:48

    Ssshhhhh, there's still 3 qtrs left. Don't jinx him.

      Paul Walnuts · 24/05/2015 at 14:45

      73 SC Points at Half Time !

        Hazey · 24/05/2015 at 16:15

        Final score?

          dognino · 24/05/2015 at 16:31


Redgumwon · 24/05/2015 at 14:37

Hi guys and girls I've got two questions to ask the crew.

Should I leave Hogan on the ground or sub in Salem and take Clarks 89?

On the ground Vandenberg or Mitch Wallis?

    dognino · 24/05/2015 at 14:46

    I took clarks score over Tarrant, which paid off .so would recommend the same , if you'd be happy with 89 from hogan , then take the runs on the board.

    Wallis over VDB , purely for the reason Wallis will be in a winning team .

      Redgumwon · 24/05/2015 at 14:51

      Thanks for the comments dognino I'll be taking Clark and have moved Salem onto the ground. I've also used the Captain's loophole to make Fyfe Captain. I was going to go with Gray but the 256 Fyfe made looks to good to refuse.

      I think there might be an upset and Melbourne might beat the doggies today. My thinking is that the dogs have had a few hard physical games on the young bodies.

        Dave · 24/05/2015 at 17:23

        VDB going big

          Derek · 24/05/2015 at 17:26

          105 at 3/4 time

          Who has him on their field?

            Redgumwon · 24/05/2015 at 18:03

            I went with Vandenberg on the ground but left out Hogan for Clark. Hogan is going to be a gun for Melbourne

              dognino · 24/05/2015 at 18:48

              Sorry red, some bad advice from me there. Glad you went vandy on field .

                Tophawk · 24/05/2015 at 19:09

                Wrong on both counts. Dees big winners and Vandenberg the big winner. It happens mate.

                Thats part of footy, and keeps us coming back.

                  dognino · 24/05/2015 at 20:33

                  Yep, cost me $10 too,lol

                Redgumwon · 24/05/2015 at 19:25

                No problem Dognino I just wanted to see what other thought. I needed Salem on the ground to use the loophole and make Fyfe my captain in the end.

          Tophawk · 24/05/2015 at 19:07


          How does 131 SC points sound. Still have him and will keep him!!

            Redgumwon · 24/05/2015 at 19:24

            Me too I think the guy can find the footy and Melbourne played some quality sides the last few weeks

Derek · 24/05/2015 at 18:05

Will Minson red carded today in VFL. Might miss 7 weeks

    Redgumwon · 24/05/2015 at 18:13

    Witnesses at the game have said there wasn't to much in it. There is a write up at the AFL site.

    Tophawk · 24/05/2015 at 19:05

    Not too much in it. Probably will get a couple of weeks as making contact with an umpire is deemed very serious, thus the reason he will get a suspension.

    Ben · 24/05/2015 at 19:35

    one of the Port players in the SANFL got 3 for the same thing

    Tyler · 24/05/2015 at 19:41

    Shouldn't matter to anyone playing sc anyway, if you had him you hopefully would've traded him out

Traded in rocky this week, took clarks 89 and benched Tarrant, but my best decision was putting labumba on the bench , all my rookies have scored more than him. Unfortunately I have to keep him until the byes .

Poloko48 · 24/05/2015 at 19:02

Krak subbed out on 34pts.
With about 15mins to go Gray on 97, Maric 107, which puts me at 2170 total.

Tophawk · 24/05/2015 at 19:03

Tom Rockliff is a buy this week!! Scored 120 this week. $o points above his break even. Will probably rise by 8K which does not worry me at all. I am very confident now is the time to grab him. Vandenberg had a blinder today. He scored 131 today. I was planning to do the straight switch for Rockliff. Not so sure now. Might have to be Touk Miller now.

Tulendeena · 24/05/2015 at 19:25

2104 this week

wonder what par will be, I'm guessing around 2200

    Derek · 24/05/2015 at 19:31

    2349 for me

      Tophawk · 24/05/2015 at 19:59

      Fantastic score! That is way above par.

      The last 2 weeks my scores have been a bit below par, not because of captain selections, but by leaving the wrong guys on the bench.

      This week,

      Tarrant on field and Hogan on the bench. Cost: 74 points.
      Cam Ellis Yolmen on field and Vandenberg on bench. Cost: 72 points.

      TOTAL COST for these two decisions: a whopping 146 points. Get those right and my score would have been around 2230 this week. But hey, thats life.

      That said, my side is very well balanced now. An even spread of players for the byes, at this stage few trades required during byes (Be nice to me supercoach gods) and only one trade required this week. Touk Miller out and Tom Rockliff in. That will leave me with 20 trades.

      Cheers Derek

    Tophawk · 24/05/2015 at 19:32

    I got 2100 as well. About 100 below par. If I had Vandenberg and Hogan on the field it would have been above par. Its bloody frustrating but at least I still have these cash cows and made me more cash this week. They will both get a game next week. LOL


    Tyler · 24/05/2015 at 19:44

    I started the round with a 149 from simpson and then got a 171 from Steven, then all downhill from there, ended with a poor 2129

    Davo · 24/05/2015 at 19:47

    was looking at 2300 untill lumumba goldstien tarrant bellchambers

    Liam · 24/05/2015 at 20:05

    I scored 2274 with Tarrant on and hogan on the bench.

    Pretty happy with my score though

    Crowmagnon · 24/05/2015 at 20:26


    dognino · 24/05/2015 at 20:29

    2248 for me, and my first score over 2100 this season, been very consistently averaging 2060

SCDonkey · 24/05/2015 at 19:42

I am doing double upgrade this week.

Which two should I get?

Priddis Rocky and Lewis

I have 390K in the warchest.

    Derek · 24/05/2015 at 19:45

    I’m tossing up between Rocky for my mid or Delidio up forward

      SCDonkey · 24/05/2015 at 20:20

      Looking to get him after bye rounds. Bye round is just around the corner.

    Tyler · 24/05/2015 at 19:53

    Rocky and Priddis

      SCDonkey · 24/05/2015 at 20:16

      Yeah I am leaning towards Rocky and Priddis. Rocky is cheap as chips at the moment. Priddis is ridiculously consistent.

        Locked and Loaded · 24/05/2015 at 20:49

        Looks like waiting for Rocky after bye rounds means losing a fair few amount of points. Trade him in now!!

          SCDonkey · 24/05/2015 at 22:47

          For sure I am upgrading 2 this week. It will complete my Mids Ruc and Fwd line up before the bye rounds. My back line I’m not so worried about it for now. Will concentrate on that after the byes.

          Pretty happy how my team is travelling at the moment was Ranked around 60K in round 4 now have jumped to 20K.

          SCDonkey · 24/05/2015 at 22:55

          Oh… i was referring to getting Lids after the byes can’t fit him in my structure at the moment. Rocky and Priddis will be in my team this week.

Alex · 24/05/2015 at 19:47

Had five scores sub 50 2003 total abysmal

Tyler · 24/05/2015 at 19:52

Couple of dud scores in my team this week, Buddy 47, Goldy 44, tarrant 36, then the rookies playing below par with CEY 59, Miller 63, Mcintosh 52 and krak 37.

Rob · 24/05/2015 at 19:57

Hey community!

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

With 200k in the bank who should I bring in?

Danners16 · 24/05/2015 at 20:04

Well, I had a great week this week, Schade-33, Tarrant-34, Goldstein-44, Krak-38, Bont-42, Miller-63, 8 players scored over 100 to finish up with 1975. There goes my top 1000 ranking, I doubt anyone could do worse than that

    Tophawk · 24/05/2015 at 20:20

    Damn!! Thats harsh. My condolences.

    If its any consolation I had Tarrant, Goldy, Bont and Miller on field as well. AND Hogan and Vandenberg on the bench. LOL

    As such, I ended up with 2081 this week.

    Next week has gotta be a whole damn lot better.


      Danners16 · 24/05/2015 at 20:38

      Thanks, I will have B.Smith, L.Hodge, I will probably bring in Rockliff next week so I should do a lot better

Liam · 24/05/2015 at 20:07

Scored 2274 this week with tarrant on instead of Hogan.

What did everyone else get??

    Donavan · 24/05/2015 at 20:34

    2225 for me.

    Traded in McDonald for Oxley, of coarse Oxley out scored McDonald this week, also traded out Vandenberg, Murphy's law.

    Looking to trade in Rocky & Hibberd next week, just a warning to others thinking the same.

    Derek · 24/05/2015 at 21:07

    Scored 2349 which was 246th for the week and jumped me to 116th overall
    Pretty happy

      Liam · 24/05/2015 at 21:13

      Great work derek, ripper score

        Derek · 24/05/2015 at 21:52

        Thanks. And that is with Cloke in my team from round 1

Ben · 24/05/2015 at 20:21

Anyone think Yeo will cop a week? Traded him in for Saad. Stoked with his 111 but definitely don't want brown or macintosh on field next week.

    dognino · 24/05/2015 at 20:30

    Looked pretty soft, if he has a good record I think he'll be right.

Tophawk · 24/05/2015 at 20:57

Who is going Patrick Cripps for Tom Rockliff this week?

Could this be the perfect switch this week? I am seriously looking at it.

    Derek · 24/05/2015 at 21:22

    That’s me. Just have enough cash for the one trade

    Redgumwon · 24/05/2015 at 21:26

    I did it this weekend. I'd be doing it if I were you

carlashirley90 · 24/05/2015 at 21:12

2161 middle of the pack I reckon and had crappy scores from Pittard Franklin Zorko and Goldy

I'm wrapped I benched Tarrent for Hogan and my Treloar and Rockliff trade in's this week were good enough so far.

Poloko48 · 24/05/2015 at 21:14

Scored 2210 this week, my only trade this week will be Lumumba out, swing DMac into def, bring in Rockliff.
My midfield is now complete with Fyfe, Pendles, Priddis, JPK, Treloar, Parker, SMitch & Rockliff.
Only leaves me with $25K in the bank + 17 trades, will have to now wait until the byes to fix my def & fwd lines.

Full team:

DEF: Enright, Oxley, Newnes (MID), Saad (MID), KMac (MID), Lever (Goodes, Goddard (FWD))
MID: Fyfe, Pendles, Priddis, JPK, Treloar, Parker, SMitch, Rockliff (CEY, Krak (FWD), Anderson)
RUC: Goldy, Maric (Read (FWD))
FWD: Gray (MID), Swan (MID), Bennell (MID), Bont (MID), Hogan, Clark (Tarrant, Lamb)

Current ranking 29,254 overall, have jumped from 63,000 at R4 so hoping this improvement can continue!
Aiming for top 10K or better, currently 1,467pts from the lead and 351pts away from top 10K.

    Derek · 24/05/2015 at 21:26

    I started with SMitch, he has been very good. He isn’t a keeper as he hardly scores over 120. Will hold him for now but will trade him to Gaz when he comes bavk

    Tophawk · 24/05/2015 at 21:34

    Not bad Poloko!

    Ur seriously flying up in the rankings. I am ranked 10,774 overall and have been floating between 15,000 and 5,000 since the start of the season.

    You do need to watch your trades. Only 17 trades left with 25K in the kitty is a concern. You also seem to be a little out of whack with your players "out" during the byes. Only 8 out in round 11, which is great that round, but will bite you in the Ar?se in round 12 and 13.


Locked and Loaded · 24/05/2015 at 21:36

No real downgrade options presenting themselves again next week… Does SC allow us to apply for loans??
