Ashley J · 28/05/2015 at 21:45

Should I be trading Lonie out this round? Can only downgrade

    Mac · 28/05/2015 at 21:49

    Dale looks the best option, will avoid starting with the vest this week too (possibly be subbed off), not sure about his scoring output, rookie choices are scarce.

    Ben · 28/05/2015 at 21:52

    No forward rookies to bring in. Dale if desperate but questionable JS and high sub chance.

    Jackybluch · 28/05/2015 at 22:49

    should i start hamling or mckenzie?

      Ben · 28/05/2015 at 22:51

      Mckenzie has a good chance of not playing. Wait until finalised teams tomorrow arvo.

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 11:15

    hold Lonie until the Bye
    no good downgrade option

Mac · 28/05/2015 at 21:46

Hey community, saw Grant Birchall hobble off the field Saturday night, looked really sore, I know he is subdue to tests, but does anyone know a possible time frame? cheers

    Chicko · 28/05/2015 at 21:52

    Mate he'll be fine don't sweat it. A true supercoacher would never doubt a superstar like Birch.

      Mac · 28/05/2015 at 22:06

      Just wanting to know a time frame on his injury..

      T-mitch · 29/05/2015 at 01:53

      Oh yeah, how many games he missed this year?

    Ben · 28/05/2015 at 21:53

    Should be back next week. No need to risk him against Gold Coast.

    r2d2 · 28/05/2015 at 23:06

    Out this week isn’t he ?

Matt · 28/05/2015 at 21:49

Need to downgrade Tarrant or Miller this week to be able to upgrade to Rockliff.

Who is a better option out of Dale and Menadue?

    Ben · 28/05/2015 at 21:54

    Dale, but both aren't good options.

    OldOcker · 29/05/2015 at 03:13

    I do not like either option. I am going Karl Amon, Has played 2 sub affected games but is named on ground this week.
    Hopefully he will play through the byes at least. Kane Cornes retiring and injuries could see him play 5 or 6 games.
    I will change my mind if he is made sub before I do my planned trade.

      Jdogg · 29/05/2015 at 06:56

      I have downgraded to Lambert. Might be a few weeks away but he should walk straight in.

    Danners16 · 29/05/2015 at 10:15

    Tarrant-Menadue, heard rumors that Hardwick wants to run his young boys around a bit more

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 11:16

    dont get sucked into these trades this week

Jack · 28/05/2015 at 21:50

Deledio or dalhaus?

    Scotty · 28/05/2015 at 21:55

    I don't think Deledio is a great option due to the chance he'll get injured/rested.
    I also think Dahlhaus will have more consistent scoring.
    But when Deledio goes big, he goes BIG

    Ben · 28/05/2015 at 21:55

    Dahlhaus: Safer pick, less upside,
    Deledio: Much better player, injury risk / could be managed.

    Danners16 · 29/05/2015 at 10:14

    Dahlhaus, cheaper and is one of the highest averaging forwards I believe

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 11:16

    take a punt on lids injury woes being behind him, or wait until after his bye

the sprinkler · 28/05/2015 at 21:51

Hey Higgo- we most certainly need another Shaun Higgins song for the second third/half of the season. I thought it was on the cards when you took control of the music last week.

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 11:17

    no crass in the song please
    keep it clean for all the Mothers

Alex · 28/05/2015 at 21:53

Kade Simpson and Dayne beams?

    Alex · 28/05/2015 at 21:54

    Top 6 top 8

      derek · 29/05/2015 at 09:40

      I think both are just outside the top 6/8. But their price reflects that.

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 11:17


Luke · 28/05/2015 at 21:55

lonie or mcintosh out?

    Dean · 28/05/2015 at 23:02

    Lonie without a doubt mate, he has a break even of 100 compared to McIntosh's break even which is 43. Lonie will drop at least $20k you would think. McIntosh should still make you money.

    Hope this helps…

      Luke · 29/05/2015 at 08:47

      cheers heaps dean

    Danners16 · 29/05/2015 at 10:14

    Lonie, higher breakeven

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 11:17

    Lonie over Kmac
    however no good downgrade options

Charlie · 28/05/2015 at 21:59

Is it worth bringing in someone like Hugh Goddard or Steele for Lonie as they are guaranteed games soon? I need to get rid of lonie this week

    Ben · 28/05/2015 at 22:03

    Neither a guaranteed games any time soon! Steele would be playing for almost any other team but with GWS's midfield, there's no room for him and if he plays, lock him in for the sub. Theres a few players above Goddard and will take a lot of injuries for him to get a game.

      Derek · 28/05/2015 at 22:16

      I wouldnt bring either in until named.

    SCaddict · 28/05/2015 at 23:33

    I wouldn't be in a hurry to move Lonie on. Yes he has a sizable BE this week and next but that is artificially elevated due to being KO'd in the first minutes of his last game. Once that 3 has cycled through his pricing he'll be back to making you cash again.

    He is also a live body with excellent JS and decent scoring potential which is especially crucial during the bye period. So I wouldn't be trading him out for someone with flaky or non existent JS and/or limited scoring ability.

      OldOcker · 29/05/2015 at 03:17

      Totally agree Addict. I am still holding him at this stage.

      Dan · 29/05/2015 at 03:31


      @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 11:18

      well written piece of literature

Sorellos · 28/05/2015 at 22:08

might chuck a vice captain on tommy mitchell, thoughts ?

    Phil · 28/05/2015 at 23:11

    I like it. One thing I've noticed about Carlton (ever since Round 1 when Dusty, Lids, Cotchin struggled while Hunt, McIntosh smashed it) they're a obviously a bad team but they do have good taggers. So it seems the oppositions first string midfielders don't usually smash it, but the second string (which is what I'd class Titch as in this strong midfield) midfielders do.

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 11:18


    dont spoil it mate!!!!

Charlesy · 28/05/2015 at 22:14

Parker vc to smash the blues and if not Lewis v Gold Coast! I reckon I’ve got it covered this week.

Harry · 28/05/2015 at 22:15

What do you reckon on Ryder fellas? Out this week with Achilles injury and has struggled to score well recently.
Cop a donut this week or trade to a Blicavs, Mummy or Goldy?

    Ben · 28/05/2015 at 22:23

    Trade to avoid a donut. Cant really split Martin, Blicavs, Mumford, Jacobs. Don't trade Goldstein in with a b/e around 170

      Phil · 28/05/2015 at 23:15

      If it's to save a donut I wouldn't care to much about break evens, you need the guy now. So to me Goldstein, followed by Blicavs would be the best value for money. I wouldn't pick Mumford unless if you have backup.

    SCaddict · 28/05/2015 at 23:42

    Yeah ship him off immediately as that achilles could linger even when he comes back and curtail his scoring ceiling throughout the season.

    Plus not sure he'll be a consistent premium point scorer even if fully fit, playing primarily up forward with Lobbe getting the bulk of the ruck minutes.

    So an easy trade for mine especially if you already have the cash to go straight to one of the premier rucks.

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 11:19

    i brought in him a coulpe of week ago into FWD for RUC cover
    need to hold i think

    structure wise he is vital

Jacko1998 · 28/05/2015 at 22:15

Lumumba >> K. Simpson done bang! increasing scoring capacity greatly. H2H only

    SideBySidebottom · 28/05/2015 at 22:47

    Solid trade. Never consider Lumumba ever again.

      hedski · 28/05/2015 at 23:32


        Jdogg · 29/05/2015 at 08:26


          derek · 29/05/2015 at 09:39

          you must feel very clean now, having got rid of him from your team.

            Deadly · 29/05/2015 at 09:41

            I've still got the dirty blighter and will hang on for round 12, but after then let the cleansing begin

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 11:20

    I have the Prince

    He is killing my team

    but he has put a spell on me

    i cant trade him out

Nicholas · 28/05/2015 at 22:15

Hey community,
Just wondering what i should do this week i have 260k and a potential double upgrade. I could go ibbo to tmac and cripps to parker. Wondering what you guys would think is my best bet this week. I have 19 trades and not happy with defence right now.

Def- shaw, taylor, saad,ibbo, mcintosh, lever( leslie, hamling)
Mid- fyfe, priddis, selwood, grifen, lewis, rockliffe, miller, cripps (cey, krak, d mckenz)
Ruck- goldy, nic nat (read)
Foward- gray, martin, franklin, goddard,swan, tarrant ( hogan,clark)

here is my bye structure:

Round 11- lever, rocky, cripps, lewis, martin, kmcintosh, hamling, cey-8 players out
Round 12- swan, goddard, fyfe, ibbo, miller, saad, leslie, franklin, dmac-9 players out
Round 13- selwood, clark, taylor, griffen, shaw, priddis, Hogan, krak, gold, Tarrant, nic nat, gray, read- 13 players out
i want to fix up round 13 but not sure how
Thanks for your help and time

    Derek · 28/05/2015 at 22:20

    Simpson much better option than TMac. Keep ibbotson, he’s doing ok

      Nicholas · 28/05/2015 at 23:24

      what about just cripps to parker?

    Luke · 28/05/2015 at 22:28

    tmac has proven he is one of the best defence supercoach options, and you have quite a few cash cows with the round 13 bye which im sure youd be looking to cull before rd13, so he could potentially fit your bye structure

    cripps on the other hand, id be looking to hold onto, the reward should heavily out weigh the risk this round, as a hugely undermanned carlton midfield will result in a big game on the youngster, with a bit more cash to make before the byes as well,

    Danners16 · 29/05/2015 at 10:13

    Those trades sound good, could get a couple more round 12 bye mids if you wanted to

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 11:21

    wait for Tmac post bye

    u MUST get your MID FWD and RUC full premo and leave DEF to last

James · 28/05/2015 at 22:19

Hey Community,

Should I put Mitch Clarke or Robbie Tarrant on the field?


    Ben · 28/05/2015 at 22:23


    The Bont · 28/05/2015 at 22:54

    I'd go Tarrant as the safer pick.

    Ignoring last week where Freo destroyed North (players like Goldstein even scored 44) he's scored 78 three weeks in a row, so you can confidently expect a score around there. Clark on the other hand could give you a 90 or a 40.

    derek · 29/05/2015 at 09:37

    Clark doesn't seem to get much of the pill, but seems to get an ok SC score every week. I don't think clark has actually had a good game this year, so when he does I can see him going 95+. WCE are lacking some height in defence, so it might be this week.

@boltie_monster · 28/05/2015 at 22:20

Is kade simpson someone we should be looking to bring into defence this round as it the cheapest he will be. His rd 11 bye should not affect. Thoughts?

    Phil · 28/05/2015 at 23:19

    A guy with a ceiling of 150, as proven last week, is a must have in our defence imo. His durability makes him moreso.

      Donavan · 28/05/2015 at 23:28

      Agree, but durability – he was out the previous week injured.

        Girdle · 29/05/2015 at 05:41

        Two weeks!

          derek · 29/05/2015 at 09:34

          he had hardly missed a game for the last 3 years before he missed those two week.

          I have him since round 1 and always though him as a year long keeper. now he is cheaper.

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 11:22

    Upgrade your FWD MID and RUC lines first

Luke · 28/05/2015 at 22:22

community, ive got two premium spots left for my mid, and one of them is going to rocky, whether it is this week or after his bye. the other spot is going to either lewis, sidebottom or parker. if it is parker or sidey, i'll bring one of them in this week, and then snag rocky after his bye at around 520K. but if its lewis, ill trade in rocky this week, and pick up lewis after his rd 11 bye. would love to hear your thoughts about both ideas, right now leaning towards parker

    Ben · 28/05/2015 at 22:26

    I'm bringing Rockliff in the week and then one of Lewis or Beams after the bye. If i could, i'd love to get Sidebottom, no one has him and every chance to be a top 8 mid, just costs a lot more than the others.

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 11:30

    watch sidebum to his bye

    post bye could be POD of the year

Jacko · 28/05/2015 at 22:25

Cripps upgrade or Tarrant upgrade ?

    The Bont · 28/05/2015 at 22:54

    neither but if you must I'd go Tarrant

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 11:30

    hold both this week
    unless u need rocky then trade cripp for rocky, otherwise HOLD

Donavan · 28/05/2015 at 22:28

Which one of the following mids should I have on the field, no loophole available-

Saad (GCS)


    Crouching Elephant · 28/05/2015 at 22:32


    Hazey · 29/05/2015 at 08:57

    Isn’t CEY suspended or did I imagine I heard Jock say it?

      Hazey · 29/05/2015 at 09:11

      Seems I imagined it! :-/

    derek · 29/05/2015 at 09:32

    I would normally say Saad, but they are up against a pretty good team this week. Crows have freo, so by elimination I would go with krak who are playing Melbourne.

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 11:32

    Cannot see why u wouldnt have Saad in your DEF line and have Krak in your FWD line

    Krak has melb this week and coming of a stinker against the tigers needs to lift or face the chopping block

Matty · 28/05/2015 at 22:29

Ive still got Zorko. Community wanna know what to do with him. I want to hold him, knowing his potential to score mega highs in the 160s. I always knew there was the risk of him scoring sub 60s, which are trash but he was there for his good weeks. I don't want to cement his 120k loss and with Brisbane looking slightly getting things back together, and Rocky back in the team, his scoring output i believe will be on the up. I realise his midfield minutes are more limited this year compared to last, so Brisbanes forward time is what Zorko is relying on a lot more. Stumped on what to do. Playing round12, which seems like the worst of the byes, so even with the potential to flop is a good prospect to hold.

    Gryffindor · 29/05/2015 at 00:14

    Hold till after rd 12, i completely agree with him potentially improving form with rocky back and brisbane player better

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 11:32

    i stopped reading after the first sentence

    HOLD Zorko the Magnificent

@GOODO71 · 28/05/2015 at 22:39

Community, looking for thoughts on Jake Lever. I know he's now priced just over $200k, but suits my plans through to the end of the byes. Averaging 69 with a breakeven of 13, and job security looks okay with injuries to Adelaide defenders.

    Chung · 28/05/2015 at 22:52

    Too expensive

    Gryffindor · 29/05/2015 at 00:13

    Missed the boat on Lever, he'll have to play on a good freo forward this week and won't score much

    Timmy · 29/05/2015 at 09:24

    If you bring him now in you'll probably need to ride him through to the end of the year as bench cover. Otherwise it will cost you a second trade to offload him

    derek · 29/05/2015 at 09:29


    Danners16 · 29/05/2015 at 10:12

    Hamling is a good option, he should your plans. Round 11 bye, should have similar job security to Lever

      beezneez · 29/05/2015 at 11:10


    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 11:33

    you have missed him in my opinion
    do not get him now

Mike · 28/05/2015 at 22:42

Hey Community,

Couple of questions,

1) Karl Amon. Without Cornes is he in the best 22? Desperate for a downgrade option (doesn't matter where) and I think Amon is the best pick. I like Biggs but way to expensive.

2) Is Bellchambers to Brooksby (GC ruck rookie) a viable trade? On the surface, it sounds stupid but Brooksby could realistically outscore Bellchambers and actually go up in value unlike Bellchambers. The fact that Dixon, Lynch and Nicholls are playing and they chose him over Zac Smith could mean ok JS.

Cheers and good luck for the weekend.

    @GOODO71 · 28/05/2015 at 23:15

    Would steer clear of bringing in Brooksby without having played a game. Yes, he might outscore TBC, but in terms of making you any money, why not wait the 2 games and get a look at the guy before making the call. If Bellchambers scores his average over the next 2 games, he's only gonna drop around $7k – $8k. Seems a fair price to pay for 2 games worth of information on Brooksby.

      Danners16 · 29/05/2015 at 10:11

      Agree with @GOODO71, if Brooksby can hold his spot in the next few weeks, it probably would be worth trading TBC down to him

    derek · 29/05/2015 at 09:28

    I would nominate that as the boldest Shark move of the year.

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 11:34

    Give Amon another week
    wont go up in value too much this week

    Brooksby is not a good option at this stage. They have SMITH and Nicholls
    you will find Brooksby is getting a game as a reward for good reserves form. dont expect him to keep his spot

      Lukas · 29/05/2015 at 13:56

      Smith doesn't look like getting a game any time soon. Nicholls no 1 ruck and even Brooksby getting a game over him.

psyrick · 28/05/2015 at 22:42

If people have the cash for it, should people be looking to upgrade Miller to Rocky instead of Cripps? Touk Miller has 3 tough games in Hawks, Swans and Dockers until the bye. Cripps will only have to play 2, and will be a lone force in the midfield. With the standard rookies, Cripps can be upgraded by downgrading McKintosh or Tarrant in the first bye round. Then you can focus on upgrading Saad or Oxley in round 12.

I definitely will be, it really suits my bye plans, but I was wondering what other peoples thoughts are about this option.

    Donavan · 28/05/2015 at 22:53

    I would move Miller before Cripps to get Rocky.

    Deadly · 29/05/2015 at 09:45

    Do it

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 11:51

    you have a good plan

    i like it

    Westy · 29/05/2015 at 16:48

    I did this.

Peter Dickinbotham · 28/05/2015 at 22:49

For round 11/12/13, are players who have a bye locked out at the start of the round or at the end? If it's at the end, can loophole everywhere.

    Mark · 28/05/2015 at 23:57

    There locked out at the start mate.

    CashCows · 29/05/2015 at 01:17

    Dont need to loophole. Top 18 scoring.

      Rolling The Dice · 29/05/2015 at 15:56

      Looks like I'll have a loophole option round 13 in the mid. Only getting donuts from Goldy and Nic Nat.

Dave · 28/05/2015 at 22:50

Is anyone considering Michael Hurley down back??

    Gryffindor · 29/05/2015 at 00:11

    Has been too inconsistent in seasons past and i don't think he'll score well when he has to play on good key forwards
    Wait for half back flankers and def/mid players to hit form

    OldOcker · 29/05/2015 at 03:30

    Hurley was switched to defence late last year and averaged over 100 playing there.
    He is playing solely in defence this year and has done very well now that he has more experience playing there.
    Yes I do have him in my team as one of my POD defenders for the year and I am happy with his consistency.
    4 games over 100 with a 96.8 average is pretty good for a defender.

    Girdle · 29/05/2015 at 05:44

    If Rocky wasn't so cheap this week and Selwood next week, then I'd look to get him in. But midfield premos have priority right now

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 12:05

    good option but i strictly follow the rule that you need to get your FWD RUC MID lines first

    demon · 29/05/2015 at 12:47

    brought him in for the prince a while back and couldn't be happier, he's playing some real good footy

Jackybluch · 28/05/2015 at 22:56

Thoughts on hamling starting or mckenzie

    Gryffindor · 29/05/2015 at 00:10

    Mckenzie has Brisbane so should score 60+
    Hamling is 194cm tall so won't gather much pill and most likely play a key defensive roll and not score much

Harry · 28/05/2015 at 22:56

Will golsteins form change around soon?? Or should I look to move on?

    Dean · 28/05/2015 at 23:59

    Is this a serious question? If so then you MUST hold Goldy he will be in the top 5

    Gryffindor · 29/05/2015 at 00:09

    Hold, he had one bad week and if you take that out he's been the best scoring ruck for the year

    Deadly · 29/05/2015 at 09:46

    I'm getting him in next week, so I'll take him off your hands.

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 12:09

    every player has a bad week

HoneyBrown · 28/05/2015 at 23:00

Hey Community,

Thinking of upgrading either Oxley/Saad to Simpson/Hibberd

And Cripps to Barlow/Lewis/Selwood

Any advice would be appreciated


    Donavan · 28/05/2015 at 23:31

    Oxley & Saad both have some cash to make, if you can trade someone else either Hibberd or Simpson are good options.

    I gather you have already got Rocky, if not his a priority. I like Lewis the best of the 3 you name.

    Gryffindor · 29/05/2015 at 00:08

    I wouldn't trade oxley or saad because they're both in good form and have money to make, wait till their byes to trade to a premo
    If you are definitely going to Simpson will score more than Hibberd

    If you don't think Cripps will do well against Sydney with no murphy, judd, gibbs then Lewis would be best out of those 3, will destroy Gold Cost

    derek · 29/05/2015 at 09:10

    Oxley to Simpson

    Cripps to Selwood

    Danners16 · 29/05/2015 at 10:09

    Oxley-Simpson, Cripps-Selwood are good trades

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 12:10

    hold ox and saad

    Rolling The Dice · 29/05/2015 at 16:09

    I would hold off trading Cripps. Carrazzo is a possible out and I reckon Cripps will ton up.

    I wouldn't trade Saad or Oxley either. Wait till their byes

      Rolling The Dice · 29/05/2015 at 16:12


r2d2 · 28/05/2015 at 23:10

Trade Cripps or tArrant to get rocky ?

    @GOODO71 · 28/05/2015 at 23:28

    Personally, I'm going Salem to Rocky (via Grey to FWD) this week, but I do also have Cripps and Tarrant in my team.
    I think Cripps has more scoring upside than Tarrant. Cripps has a breakeven of 86, which he has reached in 4 of his 6 games this year, and the 2 times he's missed were in his rd 1 debut and last week's massacre vs Geelong. I know Carlton are gonna get beaten up again tomorrow night, but no Judd, Murphy or Gibbs means somebody from Carlton has to score some points.
    So if you've gotta move one of these guys for Rocky, I vote Tarrant.

    Donavan · 28/05/2015 at 23:32

    Tarrant to Rocky. Cripps will score better than Tarrant, and this game is about points foremost.

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 12:11


@RyanRhino14 · 28/05/2015 at 23:25

I wasn't going to do any trades this week because I only have 20 trades remaining but I'm considering trading Heeney to Amon this week for the extra cash

    Gryffindor · 29/05/2015 at 00:17

    i can't see amon scoing much even with a full game and will be a subbed off risk and future starting sub risk.
    I'd hold and wait for Glenn to return from injury who looks like he can gather some pill

    OldOcker · 29/05/2015 at 03:45

    I am looking to bring Amon in this week as I am painting the fence and don't like other options.
    He may be vested off but he is currently on ground and with Polec injured for a few more weeks and Kane retiring I think he will be given games for enough weeks to make some cash and play through the byes.
    I will change my mind if he is vested before I trade.

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 12:11

    If you havent gotten rid of Heeney by now then hold.
    Amon is not the best option.
    Consider a high risk move like Heeney to Steele
    i have 20 trades left and i am holding hopefully to r11

Murray · 28/05/2015 at 23:36

Hi community,
Just wondering your thoughts on these trades

Out Cripps and Bont
In franklin and Rockliff


Out Heeney and Tarrant
In Rockliff and brooksby

In either trade, I will get Rockliff but with Syd playing Carlton Friday, is the temptation to get buddy because he might score big. To get him though, have to give up two very good players in Cripps and Bont

Which is the best option community

    Gryffindor · 29/05/2015 at 00:19

    Don't trade the bont or cripps, i think both will score well this week
    Tarrant i can see starting to score 50-60 and his start of the season was a fluke so i'd go option 2 but not sure about brooksby if he'll stay in the team

    derek · 29/05/2015 at 09:08

    wait a few more weeks for Buddy. He is playing injured, after the bye he should be better and look out for the big Buffalo Bounce.

    If you wait will get him cheaper.

      murray · 29/05/2015 at 09:13

      thanks Derek
      i think your right

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 12:12

    Why would you get rid of the Bont?
    im assuming you brought him into your team with a trade..
    then your going to trade him out

    then most likely trade him back in when he bottoms out in price post bye

    justy hold him mate

Jim · 28/05/2015 at 23:37

Yep, I reckon hold Big Willy. He'll be absolutely raring to go this week – had to endure the absolute farce that is the VFL tribunal this week and playing GWS and that Ryan Griffen + Callan Ward scum on the weekend.

I'm just gonna say it… can see him going wild and scoring 120

@BrandonMing19 · 28/05/2015 at 23:57

Trade Cripps, Ellis Yolmen or Krakouer for Rockliff?

    Gryffindor · 29/05/2015 at 00:20

    If you have to trade i'd almost lean towards Ellis Yolmen
    He has Fremantle so won't score big whereas Cripps is carltons best mid this week and Krakour had one bad week and still has tonnes of cash to make

      @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 12:16


ThatDamnRascal · 29/05/2015 at 01:03

Outs Cripps and Oxley. Both pretty much at their fattened peak
Ins : Blicavs and Rocky. Now have Gold and Blicavs as the two rucks for the rest of the season swinging TBC into the fwd line
18 trades going into the byes wont make any trades until then. 5 – 7 players until full premo. Only trouble right now is 14k in the warchest.

    Jambo · 29/05/2015 at 09:48

    I'd hold Cripps as I think he has a little more to offer. You've done very well to being 5-7 players until full premium. I'm 4 off going full premium.

      ThatDamnRascal · 29/05/2015 at 15:39

      He's the only rookie that will allow me to get both trades done plus has a pretty high BE and is playing Sydney not St Kilda so can't see him hitting that 172. Only two that need to prove their worth are Pittard and Griffin

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 12:17

    get rocky
    avoid Blicavs

    save your trades for bye rounds

      ThatDamnRascal · 29/05/2015 at 15:40

      Don't plan on trading rd11 so trades are pretty safe. In two minds about Blicavs now lol

        @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 15:42

        i would avoid Blicavs
        you dont want to chase points. i really think you should watch him until after his bye. he wont go up in price too much and you will have more data on him.

Travis · 29/05/2015 at 02:04

Hi jock. In keeping up with the spirit of the community I noticed a little tension between Higgs and Crouching. To alleviate the pressure I’d like to suggest they both sit down together, grab some pop corn and watch the “Country sisters” on the YouTube. Fits Higgs love of step dance with crouching’s love of bottom. Welcome.

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 12:18


    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 12:18

    or get Higgo to take community night podcast on his own so there is no CRASS behaviour.. keep Mother Higginbotham happy

Caz · 29/05/2015 at 04:01

Hi community, what are your thoughts on miller down to mitch Wallis. Only frees up 50k but taking Wallis injury affected score out he is averaging just over 90. Bulldogs have a nice run coming up could be a perfect stepping stone to a ultra premo. Thoughts? Thnx

    Gryffindor · 29/05/2015 at 04:27

    i can see him making 200k so good move in my books

    Girdle · 29/05/2015 at 06:01

    When you move Miller on, it should only be for a top 10 midfielder. And Wallis is not in top 10.

    derek · 29/05/2015 at 09:03

    I would say that is almost sideways trade, Miller can produce near 90SC output as well.

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 12:20

    sideways trade

    wait post bye and see how wallis goes

Evan · 29/05/2015 at 05:05

Hi community, two major issues with my team at the moment are TBC at R2 and Lumumba in defense….only have $32k in the bank…do I ride these 2 to the byes or gamble on Dale/Amon this week to get the cash to bring in a Blicavs/Jacobs/Martin??

    derek · 29/05/2015 at 09:02

    TBC has to go, he is costing you points, plus the guys you will replace him with are increasing in price (except Goldy). If you are going for rank you need to find a way to get him out this week. if you are going for league wins, you can wait a bit.

      Evan · 29/05/2015 at 09:37

      Yep, agree I need to get TBC out….just can't come decide how to generate the cash required to upgrade…any thoughts?? team below..
      D – Shaw, Mcdonald, Newnes, Saad, Oxley, Lumumba (lever, mcintosh)
      M – Fyfe, Pendles, Neale, JPK, Griff, Cripps, CEY, Rocky (krakour, mckenzie, anderson)
      R – Goldy, TBC (read)
      F – Gray, Martin, Swan, Higgins, Mitchel, Bont (tarrant, clarke)

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 12:20

    hold and hold

    do not trade out

    wait for their byes

Tony · 29/05/2015 at 07:03

G'day community,
Want to get an overall feel for the bye rounds. Time is up I feel for Ben Newton and Robbie Tarrant but there's slim pickings for rookies to bring in. Is it worth trading the 2 out to setup a bit of a war chest come the bye rounds, or risk it and hold all trades until the bye rounds and go from there? Caught in 2 minds

    Jambo · 29/05/2015 at 09:50

    I reckon wait one or two weeks and maybe pick up Keegan Brooksby cheap.

    Danners16 · 29/05/2015 at 10:08

    Building a warchest is a good idea

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 12:21

    just hold this week mate see what the SC landscape digs up

Jackie · 29/05/2015 at 08:14

Def- shaw, ibbo, lumumba, newnes, oxley,saad,(k mac, lever)

Mid- fyfe, selwood, jpk, rockliff, parker, danger, griffin, cripps,(vandenberg, cey, mckenzie)

Ruck- goldy, nic nat

Fwd- swan, gray, martin, clark, TBC, krak,(tarrant, lambert)

Got 22 trades left and 120k in the bank, was thinking of downgrading TBC, but concerned about the lack of fwd rookies

Thoughts on what I should do would be well appreciated!

    derek · 29/05/2015 at 08:56

    who are you going to get as your last midfield spot? Gaz, pendlebury.

      Jackie · 29/05/2015 at 15:33

      Yeah pendles mate

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 12:22

    hold this week mate and go gang busters through the bye rounds

    you will be looking to get Pendles after his bye then your team is set up

    Hold for Ryders price to bottom out and go TBC to ryder post bye

jesseSPANNER · 29/05/2015 at 08:28

Anyone else considering Titch as a VC option tonight? Wants to really cement his place in the Swans midfield and there will be plenty of ball available in the guts. May find it an easy way to make a name. I'm leaning towards Parker but a bit of food for thought

    Tofor · 29/05/2015 at 12:04

    I've got Parker, Kennedy and Mitchell. Tough choice on the VC!

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 12:23

    you need to SHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    lets keep this on the D/L please

jack · 29/05/2015 at 08:54

Midfield Rookie Downgrade options for J Lloyd??

    Danners16 · 29/05/2015 at 10:04

    Menadue, Dumont, Dawson, Amon are all good options

      jack · 29/05/2015 at 11:26

      Thanks mate even though your a c#unt

        jack · 29/05/2015 at 11:31

        sorry that was my school mate

          @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 12:23

          Dude…. not cool

murray · 29/05/2015 at 09:02

Unfortunately I have TBC as R2. What are your views on Jake spencer ruck from melb?? Only 344K ave91 last game 115.

thinking of trading TBC for him, using Spencer to rise in value up to his round13 bye, then trade him for a premo like Jacobs, Mumford or Maric who I think will fall in price again over the next 4-5 weeks. I just cant see TBC going up, in fact is likely to start bleeding cash.

Is this sound SC strategy? what do you all think?

    Glorin · 29/05/2015 at 09:25

    Is goldy your r1? If not wait for him to drop.

      murray · 29/05/2015 at 09:45

      goldy is R1

    Deadly · 29/05/2015 at 09:52

    Spencer was rucking against Ayce Cordy, it won't be that easy again. Don't see much upside over TBC tbh

murray · 29/05/2015 at 09:10

Hi community,
Just wondering your thoughts on these trades

Out Cripps and Bont
In franklin and Rockliff


Out Heeney and Tarrant
In Rockliff and brooksby

In either trade, I will get Rockliff but with Syd playing Carlton Friday, is the temptation to get buddy because he might score big and he be traded in as keeper. To get him though, have to give up two very good players in Cripps and Bont

Which is the best option community

    jesseSPANNER · 29/05/2015 at 09:30

    Dang. I spent ages typing that message but i swore haha!

    Basically. I wouldn't sideways to Buddy from Bont. Bont will be a great m6 at the end of year so HOLD. Im personally waiting for Buds to string some 100+ together to warrant his place. Plus the rd12 bye will be a killer if you have 1 or 2 of Titch, JPK, Parker or Hanners if you throw Buddy into the mix. Maybe a post-bye bye-in?

    As for Rocky, do you need to do a secondary trade in order to get him? Id get rid of Cripps for him but check your rd 11 bye structure. May be worth holding off a few weeks

      murray · 29/05/2015 at 09:45

      Hi Jesse
      Yes I do need to do a secondary trade to get Rockliff. I would love to get him this week if I can. Cripps, I believe has a bit more mileage in him yet, so I think I will keep him and also he might go alright in a decimated carlton midfield.

      My other option is to trade out brown and CEY and bring in rocky and say Glenn. However CEY will also have a bit more in him yet so I should keep him, that is why I thought of Tarrant to trade out.

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 12:24

    hold bont
    get rocky

Hazey · 29/05/2015 at 09:12

Dreamt that the new Kolo at G Town tonned up on debut if anyone has the cajones to trust me!

    Nuggety · 29/05/2015 at 10:32

    Is this like when u dreamt cey was suspended mate? Lol

      Hazey · 29/05/2015 at 15:16

      Haha…. Must’ve been! I swear I heard Jock say he was suspended in the Poddy!

      I am entertaining my Mother In Law out here in Timor-Leste this week, so it’s call sorts of crazy! She’s on some herbal cigarette sh*te and keeps dropping bombs in the car that’d make a dog gag!

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 12:25



luke · 29/05/2015 at 09:17

Thinking of culling Oxley this week, and I'm still holding Sloane. Considering a Oxley to hibberd almost certainly. What about a Sloane to shiels? Or any another round 13 premium around the 550 mark?

    Jambo · 29/05/2015 at 09:52

    Hibberd has cracked the ton twice this year. I would avoid. I would also avoid Shiels. I would hold Sloane if you can. I looks like you don't need to trade this week.

    Deadly · 29/05/2015 at 09:55

    Sloane will be back in R10 or R12 so he will only miss 1 or 2 more matches. I know he will go down in price initially but he is a keeper so his price is not as important as saving one trade.

    Sloane is another fallen star I plan to bring in, along with Goldy.

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 12:26

    Hold Ox
    If you have held Sloan this long just keep him mate

      Luke · 29/05/2015 at 14:57

      Ok, will do. Sitting 2nd in my league at the moment, and about 9000 overall after a pretty average first few weeks. Annoyingly, started with both Parker and Beams who both have had slow starts, and Gary who I traded to Sloane….
      If no to Oxley and Sloane(thought he was sill 4 weeks away) to Hibberd and Shiel, then what about a Salem to Franklin move? Would also need to trade McIntosh to someone cheap in the backline. Have Hamling already, maybe Kolo?(Geelong variant)
      Currently have 22 trades and keep getting 2100-2200 most weeks. Looking to get that up to 2300 sooner rather than later.

        @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 15:00

        Salem to Franklin is a great trade
        i prefer FWD MID players in my FWD line but Buddy is about to go BANG i rekon.

        I traded Ablett to Sloan too. very painful move

          Luke · 29/05/2015 at 15:05

          Salem to Franklin and McIntosh to Kolo it is. McIntosh was on bench anyway. Projected 2317, not that I believe it lol.

Sarah · 29/05/2015 at 09:18

While I respect your thoughts on Cripps Jock, I will still be trading him out this week. My gut feel is that he won't make his breakeven against the Swans. I'm sorry to say it, but the Swans midfield is significantly better than the Saints midfield which he scored 172 against. I can see him having a hard time of it with Murphy, Gibbs and Judd all out.
Cripps, you've been great, but it's time to go!

    Tophawk · 29/05/2015 at 10:16

    I agree with you. Cripps has been superb and despite the fact he might have a decent game against the Swans, superstar Tom Rockliff at 465 K is the guy that will replace Crippsy. Logic and common sense should prevail here. Both Carlton and Brisbane both have the bye in round 11. Therefore, by bringing in Rocky for Cripps, there is no net negative impact on your teams structure going into the round 11 bye. For me, this trade ticks all the boxes.

      Sarah · 29/05/2015 at 11:07

      Exaclty, by trading to another round 11 bye player there is no negative impact to my teams bye structure. I already have Rockliff so I'm looking at Dahlhaus and Deledio to bring into my forward line. Leaning towards Dahlaus just because of the injury uncertainty surrounding Deledio. I'd rather have a premium round 11 bye player than a rookie round 11 bye player for the next 2 rounds.

    I N Pieman · 29/05/2015 at 10:21

    Good points Sarah. Wish I could get rid of him this week but it’s time to move Judd on. Will probably loop CRIPPS. Might role the dice on Buddy as well.

      Sarah · 29/05/2015 at 11:08

      I'm thinking of putting the VC on Buddy too. The only thing holding me back is talk of him having a sore ankle. Is he capable of a Captain's score with a sore ankle???

        I N Pieman · 29/05/2015 at 11:18

        I was thinking the same Sarah. Could kick a bag & score really well. With Fyfe back up its worth the risk

          derek · 29/05/2015 at 12:20

          JPK for VC. he will quietly collect 30+ mainly contested and before anyone notices he will be 140SC

          Tag will go to Parker and hanaberry

            Sarah · 29/05/2015 at 12:49

            I'm tossing up between Franklin, JPK and Gray. Franklin has a dodgy ankle, JPK can tend to go missing against average sides and Gray may get the Vince tag… I wish Pendles was playing an early game!!

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 12:28

    depends who you are bringing in for him. unless your getting a proven elite player try and hold one more week

      Sarah · 29/05/2015 at 12:32

      Already have Rocky so thinking a POD in Dahlhaus or Deledio. Needs to be a round 11 bye player.

        @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 12:35

        i like Lids
        such a gun

        Get Lids

        did i mention i like Lids?

          Sarah · 29/05/2015 at 12:46

          Lol, yeah you did mention that you liked Lids!! I'm kinda leaning towards Dahlhaus though as I'm a bit put off by the coach saying Lids was a week-to-week prospect. Also think he's more of a tag risk. I like Dahlhaus. The Bont and Macrae get tagged before he does and he's spending more time in the midfield these days. He's also a POD, in just 4.4% of teams and averaging 106.

Danners16 · 29/05/2015 at 10:06

Good to see that Will "skinflute" Minson is happy on his flute again Jock! I will be one of those people this week trying to make a push on overall ranking by doing Miller-Rockliff, and Tarrant-Menadue by swinging players.

Youngy · 29/05/2015 at 10:25

which rookie out for Rocky? Vandy, Krakour, Miller or Cripps or even Tarrant, Clark or hogan.

and which rookie is the best option to trade in I was looking at Dale but I feel Amon is a better option possibly?

I can pick fwd or Mid due to swing set

thoughts community?

    brook · 29/05/2015 at 10:34

    i have the same dilemma … leaning toward amon but he is at leadt a week behind glenn in cash generation due to subaffected scores. IF glenn plays next week he will have more $ upside UNLESS Amon scores around 80-90 this week and follows up with 50-70 scores. For me it is amon v R10 rookie as i will bring glenn in next week anyway … assuming he plays (injury report was encouraging but u never really know) … ideally i would like to hold but i need the cash to grab rocky. as usual, its a conundrum but thats why we love this game!

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 12:29


    but avoid any rookies this week

Locked and Loaded · 29/05/2015 at 10:27

Last chance to still get Parker at great value… JUMP ON!!

Locked and Loaded · 29/05/2015 at 10:51

Sorry Jock but Sydney will absolutely destroy Carlton tonight a yelp will not even be heard

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 12:30

    This game tonight will definitely be banned from Red Tube – what is about to happen to Carlton will be likened to some very explicit and hardcore materials

      Locked and Loaded · 29/05/2015 at 15:01


Jono · 29/05/2015 at 11:09

Community which of these two trades???
1. Lonie to Simpson via DPP and swing Higgins forward
2. Lonie to Amon via DPP and swing Bennel forward. That leaves me enough cash to trade TBC to Sauce Jacobs/Mummy

Leaves me with 20 trades. Leaning to trade 2 as TBC is killing me…thoughts appreciated!

BigDropKick · 29/05/2015 at 11:14

Trying the Loop on Cripps tonight ( first time , want to make sure I'm doing it right ) …. do I put Cripps as Emergency , put Lambert on Field . If Cripps goes well leave him there , If not do I put Ellis-Yolmen on field and Lambert back on on bench ?

While I have you …. which one on Field ?
Hogan , Krak or Clark

Thanks !

    nathan · 29/05/2015 at 12:27

    Gday guys

    I have ryder as my f5 atm
    What do I do?
    Injured and not scoring well
    Is it worth just holding him or moving him out?

    JMG · 29/05/2015 at 12:45

    Yes that’s the correct way to loophole.
    I’d field Hogan or Clark

    Sarah · 29/05/2015 at 12:54

    Correct with the loophole.
    I'd also field Hogan over Krak and Clark.

      Great thanks Sarah and JMG

Which do you think is the best trade to get Rocky. I am a little short of cash to do my preferred trade of T.Adams , so It's either:

option 1:
Cripps to Rocky

only uses one trade but sorry to get rid of Cripps.

Option 2:

C Smith to B Dale (Adams DPP).
T Adams to Rocky.

Leaves me with weak forward line of Swan, D Martin, Bont, Tarrant, Clark, Lonie, Salem and Dale (until I trade in R. Gray later).

    Sarah · 29/05/2015 at 11:30

    Option 1 without any regrets

      beezneez · 29/05/2015 at 11:37

      Thanks Sarah – I will go that way.

      Trading Vandenberg last week didn't help my thinking.

        Sarah · 29/05/2015 at 11:52

        And sometimes that'll happen. I traded Vandenberg last week too!! You can't predict something like that.

I have ryder and my f5 atm
Do I offload or bench?
It’s an injury the lingers around for a while

@wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 12:32

Maybe non of those trades
Hold TBS to the bye rounds
Avoid Amon, not proven yet
upgrade your RUC post bye

save your trades and go BANG BANG BANG BANG BANG BANG BANG BANG BANG like in backseat of Sonata throgh the bye rounds

@wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 12:34

Public Service Anouncement.

Do not Trade out the Bont
Do not bring in these raw, untrustworthy Rookies
Do not trade out Goldstein
Do not be scared to hold trades

Lets just sit back, relax, put our feet up, have a beer, turn the TV on and watch some Supercoach Gold with the knowledge that we have saved our trades and watch our teams flourish.

    JMG · 29/05/2015 at 12:47

    Thanks mate think I needed that wake up call.

    Mitch · 29/05/2015 at 13:02

    So your saying I shouldn’t trade in Rocky? Everyone has a different sitch

      @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 13:28

      thanks for the heads up

    "Do not bring in these raw, untrustworthy Rookies"

    QUOTE "Consider a high risk move like Heeney to Steele"

    A non playing rookie to a rookie that MIGHT get a game does not make sense.
    I am painting the fence this week to get in a gun that makes my bye structure look really good.
    Karl Amon just like any rookie appears to me that he may get games even though he has been vested in his first 2 games.
    This week he is named on field and without Kane Cornes and with Polec being injured for another 5 or 6 weeks appears like a valid selection considering what is available. Amon did okay in the nab cup and has the round 13 bye as well which helps get through the other byes.
    Everybody is in a different situation and part of my plan was to trade one gun in this week.
    We all have different opinions too I suppose and this is mine.

Beerz09 · 29/05/2015 at 13:23

Deledio or Bennell ?

    @wheels_1987 · 29/05/2015 at 13:35


Vic City · 29/05/2015 at 13:38

Still have Salem and Goodes, better to hold until there are better rookie options in a couple weeks?

Beerz09 · 29/05/2015 at 13:53

How many outs should we have going into round 11 bye? should we look for balance – same number of players out each bye round ?

    Locked and Loaded · 29/05/2015 at 15:02

    Personally I'm writing off round 12. and will try and make up points in 11 & 13

lolattack · 29/05/2015 at 15:48

t miller -> amon
lonie -> dahlhaus

t/u good idea
t/d bad idea

Rick · 29/05/2015 at 16:30

Will Joel Hamling keep his place in the wb side in the coming weeks?

Thomas · 29/05/2015 at 17:05

Is it too late to get Tom Mcdonald in your team????

jack · 29/05/2015 at 17:40

Who should i get in my forward line for 509,000. Most of the better options are more of course

Mitch · 29/05/2015 at 17:52

Cripps to rockliff this week with 190k left 22 trades
Buddy priority this week or Dahlause worth a look? Out for Miller or Tarrant or hold this week?

jimmydowland · 29/05/2015 at 19:30
