Patch’s Panic Room – Round 14

Published by Patch on

Patch - Supercoach Panic Room MasterOnce again, we have hit the end of the Supercoach week and find ourselves with absolute carnage. We have huge outs. Sloane, Franklin, Bennel, Roughead, and more, but compared to the next three names they are laughably insignificant.


I can’t put it any better than Seeker. Or Chicko, for that matter, whose use of words at a time when they failed most – myself included – was astounding. Or Lek, or Dex, or any of the 240 commenters on the final Sunday Podcast. While it makes me unbelievably sad to write the words “last Sunday Podcast”, the outpouring from the community has been touching for Jock, Higgo and Crouching, and everyone else involved here. Because that’s what this place is about – the community. You, reading this now, are why this place exists. So, while thanking the boys for four years of exemplary service to the game of Supercoach, our Sunday evenings and for – personally – reminding me to laugh at times when laughter was the last thing on my mind, I also want to thank YOU, community, on behalf of us all here. You are why we are here. Every comment, every view, every tweet… you are what make this place bloody special. And we will keep going, keep soldiering on, because you are here. It is a pleasure – no, a privilege – to be here. The wheels keep turning. The tide keeps flowing. The sun keeps rising.

I’m getting emotional so I’m going to go eat some Tim Tams. Lots of them.


Right. Every piece of chocolate in my house has been devoured. I feel better. A little bit. Now, I have a confession to make. I have six trades left. I will not reach full premium. My side this year has been wracked by injury – fourteen trade worthy injuries, plus weekly niggles – but it is still inexcusable. And Crouching One let me know about it this week. He will send me to Pyanmar on Sunday night to learn the way of the jungle. I will learn to cage fight and how to properly fly-kick flogs out of my side – something I have failed to do with Ryan Griffin and Jasper Pittard this year. The timing is almost as bad as my side is, I know, but Crouching wasn’t having a bar of it. So, as a precursor to The News, I have been dropped (or, more accurately, drop kicked) for two weeks to find some form.


There are many different types of sadness. There is the sadness you feel when you reach the last Tim Tam in the packet. The sadness you feel when your favourite podcast announces it will finish. That was all put into perspective this morning with the news of Phil Walsh’s death in Adelaide this morning. That is a bigger type of sadness. A numbing type. And with that sadness reverberating through the football world, I’d like to send my heart out to everyone impacted by Walshy’s death.

What it means for Supercoach – I don’t know. The game has been canceled, and rightly so – who could play football under these conditions? It hardly matters what happens to our Supercoach sides when a giant of the game – who has spent time at half the clubs in the league – is killed. Nonetheless, if anything is announced I’ll try and let you know.


Now to the actual news, the news that dictates how terribly our sides will be doing this week. The Supercoach Gods were obviously as distraught as we were about the podcast this week, and as such dropped absolute carnage – again – on our sides.

Rory Sloane has broken his jaw. Again. He will be out for a month minimum, more realistically six weeks. A kick in the teeth for those of us who have traded him in only a week or two ago. Some have wasted seven trades between Tom Rockliff (who is a 50/50 for this week) and Sloane alone. Trade him to a premo. I’ve gone a straight swap to JPK.

Suspensions – if you’ll pardon the pun – have whacked us right in the face this week. Lance Franklin and Kurt Tippet will miss a week each (although I consider Buddy very lucky to get only one), and Mr Fix-It in the ruck, Stef Martin, will miss two weeks. I wouldn’t be surprised if I see him in Pyanmar with one of Crouching’s rum cans stuck in unmentionable places. Unless you have more than 12 trades, hold all three.

The news on Stef Martin makes news of Essendon’s Jake Carlisle six week ankle injury pertinent, as it will have a large impact on their structure. Indication so far is that Shaun McKernan will continue in the ruck, which will be good for his scores, while Michael Hurley will play forward, which will be bad for his. McKernan is relevant this week as the poor man’s Max Gawn – solid ruck cover and a possible F6 or 7. I reckon Gawn will average 90, and McKernan 80 from here on out; provided both play in the ruck. Both good pick-ups, especially with Stef Martin down, but I will be picking McKernan as I am poor.

Jarryd Roughead will also miss Hawthorn’s match against Collingwood after having a melanoma removed from his lip. I’m wishing him all the best, because cancer is a rather terrifying prospect. At this stage, it’s not known how long he’ll miss, but it shouldn’t be more than two. It is listed as “indefinite” though.

Gary Ablett returns this week – hopefully ending the #GazWatch hashtag. He will replace Harley Bennell in the side, who had pictures of him with the wrong things up his nose surface in the media. Plenty of cracking jokes to be made here, but I won’t speed after the quick laughs. I’m much more meth-odical than that. In other, totally unrelated news, I’m sending someone to see if Josh Glenn has actually been up Harley Bennel’s nose this whole time. I’ll get back to you tomorrow on that one.

Geelong veterans Jimmy Bartel and James Kelly are due to return this week, but Mitch Clark is still a week or two off returning. Time for him to go, and #BartelWatch begins to see how far he drops in price and if he can be snaffled cheaply.

Jack Reiwoldt wasn’t seen at Richmond’s training this morning, prompting rumours that he will miss. No more information than that is available, but if it becomes so, we’ll let you know.

And finally, Sydney young gun Tom Mitchell has been named on the bench. Surely Dean Towers will be sub, surely… surely…

I’ll be back tomorrow morning with the rest of the team news, so make sure you pop in! Unfortunately, I won’t be around the comments tonight or much of tomorrow, which is frustrating, but as someone said to me this week, “sometimes life gets in the way”.


Sam Docherty has done a hammy and will miss a few weeks. Hold him.Paul Seedsman has been dropped, alongside Bailey Dale and Lukas Webb. Pearce Hanley has strained a hamstring and will miss against Fremantle. Carlton tagger Andrew Carrazzo has been sidelined with a toe problem.

Cyril Rioli is back into the Hawthorn side this week, Hugh Goddard has been named on an extended bench again and Caleb Daniel has finally been named for his first game. Jake Lever and Ricky Henderson have been named, but as mentioned the Cats-Crows game is still up in the air following Phil Walsh’s death.


I’ve briefly Gawn over my thoughts of the ruck situation (geddit?) in the news. Both are valuable buys. If you can get Gawn, do so, but don’t discount Shaun McKernan as I think his job security is much better at Essendon.


But I’m going to look into who should replace the Sloane Ranger this week.

If you have buckets of cash, a) I am incredibly envious and b) get yourself the best damn premium your money can buy. Paddy Dangerfield. Dan Hannebury. Dayne Beams. Matt Priddis. Leigh Montagna. Brett Deledio and his dodgy Achilles. One of them. Poke a stick in the general direction of that list and pick whichever one you hit (but personally I’d go with Danger, Beams or Montagna).

If you’re like me and you’re too poor to do anything, Josh P Kennedy or Joel Selwood are who you’d want to look at, or possible Boomer Harvey or my pick of the week Chad ‘The Chad’ Wingard at 510k. Averaged 110 over his last 3 and 100 over his last 5. In the midfield. And even better, I don’t have him so can’t curse him for you!


Breakevens are slowly losing their relevance as our teams solidify, but Trading Places will stay for a while longer.

Dan Aykroyds

231 – G. Ablett
231 – J. Bartel
188 – P. Hanley
167 – R. Gray
163 – T. Mitchell
156 – P. Dangerfield
144 – D. Martin

Eddie Murphys

-67 – J. Glenn
-51 – T. McLean
-39 – S. Colquhoun
-38 – T. Broomhead
-33 – K. Brooksby
-20 – M. Gawn
-8 – J. Lever
-7 – S. McKernan
-6 – A. Boston
-4 – K. Lambert

The rookie rumble is no longer around now we’re all at… “full” …premium, and hopefully we won’t need it until next season!

It’s carnage this week and they’ve only named one team. And we’ve call 18 sides worth of carnage to deal with, too. It’s going to be a long weekend, community, and not the good sort of long weekend. Supercoach winter is here. Bunker down. Conserve trades. Remember the good times. And to Jock, Higgo and Crouching, again we thank you.



Joel · 02/07/2015 at 17:12

cam ellis yolmen, jack steele or alex boston as M8 this week?

last rookie trade to upgrade next week due to so many injuries.
ranked 400th so want to get this one right as i've gone the wrong captain/emergency many weeks

    derek · 02/07/2015 at 18:08

    can you loophole with a non-player?

      Joel · 02/07/2015 at 18:12

      no, have jed anderson as 3rd bench player who plays before all.

        Donavan · 02/07/2015 at 19:42

        Think I would go Steele, Boston as EMERG.

    SuperCoachMan · 02/07/2015 at 21:12

    I'd go CEY, no way he is going to be sub this week and with sloane out it means more midfield time for him

MOC · 02/07/2015 at 17:25

who should I get out of Hannebery, Beams or Parker? Got enough for all

    Zak · 02/07/2015 at 17:36

    I would go beams. There are so many swans players to share points, but Hannebery has seemed to come out on top of them all this year.

    scrofl · 02/07/2015 at 17:42

    Beams would be more consistent of those three.

Zak · 02/07/2015 at 17:26

I was gonna go

Sloane to JPK and Oxley to Murphy or Yeo

But I have had a change of heart and am considering going oxley to smith and Sloane to dangerfield.

I will then be full premium.

I think smith is only a step away from getting his disposal efficiency right.

Is this a stupid move community?

    MOC · 02/07/2015 at 17:30

    Either of the two is a great trade. I would lean towards the second option as Dangerfield destroys when Sloane doesn't play

    Donavan · 02/07/2015 at 17:35

    Like the move given the ability for Dangerfield to increase his output when Sloan is out.

    Agree that Smith is getting better with each game, getting the ball, now just needs to use it better.

    Zak · 02/07/2015 at 17:38

    Thanks guys
    That makes me feel a bit more at ease going with smith.

      Motsy · 03/07/2015 at 18:37

      God I hope you didnt go with danger/smith!!

    scrofl · 02/07/2015 at 17:43

    The second option is much better, imo. Danger should score better now that Sloane isnt taking points from him, and Smith will be back to his best soon.

    derek · 02/07/2015 at 18:09

    sensational trades.

    Dangerfield is expensive but with no Sloane, he will go massive

Jacko · 02/07/2015 at 17:31

I have 7 trades and enough to trade Sloane for someone worth 500k and only like boak. or do I do I burn two and get anyone ?

    derek · 02/07/2015 at 18:09

    trade up. Don't stuff around with maybes at this time of the year. Go hard.

Tiger · 02/07/2015 at 17:31

Joel. Try the loophole as emergency on one of those 3 and you can see what they score whoever plays first and then put your non playing mid on the ground. if you have a non playing midfielder.

    Joel · 02/07/2015 at 17:37

    can't loophole the mids this week unfortunately as i have jed anderson playing before all of them

      derek · 02/07/2015 at 18:10

      that is why I'm trading in Payne this week. saints DPP. saints play 7 sundays.

        Joel · 02/07/2015 at 18:12

        traded in hugh goddard, allows DPP with higgins, ie covers buddy this week

Nathan · 02/07/2015 at 17:32

How many trades should we have?

    judd0 · 02/07/2015 at 17:51

    I've got 10 and I think that is good, but I think as long as your full premium and you have atleast 7 I think thats good.

      Tyler · 02/07/2015 at 18:45

      Haha… I’ve got 6 and yet to get full premo

    Ethan · 02/07/2015 at 19:09

    in between the range of 11 and 7

    Youngy · 02/07/2015 at 21:15

    Anywhere above 7

HallOfFamer · 02/07/2015 at 17:37

Have 35k in the bank, if Titch for whatever reason gets sub who should I trade him to? Already have Grey, Goddard, Dahlhaus, Dusty and Swan

    Mac · 02/07/2015 at 17:52

    Boomer Harvey

    Simon · 02/07/2015 at 18:12

    Titch not starting sub

    judd0 · 02/07/2015 at 18:21

    Have a look at wingard, in good form of late.
    Otherwise go down to Zorko make some cash and he is a solid F6.

    Tyler · 02/07/2015 at 20:11

    Gary Rohan got subbed but it seems JPK takes points away from Titch and vice versa, so when JPK has a good one like tonight titch doesn't play as well

mcleal10 · 02/07/2015 at 17:37

What do I do with Bennelllll??

    judd0 · 02/07/2015 at 17:56

    Get rid of him, he won't be playing anytime soon I wouldn't think.

    Youngy · 02/07/2015 at 21:14

    Well I wouldn't be holding him that's for sure

Mark · 02/07/2015 at 17:52

Hey guys, just wanting to get some ideas of what I should do this week:
Backs: Higgins, Taylor, Lumumba, Ibbotson, Newnes, Oxley (Saad, Hamling)

Mids: Fyfe, J P Kennedy, Pendelbury, Selwood, Griffen, Rich, Rockliff, Cripps (McKenzie, Steele, Ellis- Yolman)

Rucks: Minson, Leuenberger (Read)

Forwards: Martin, Swan, Mitchell, Dahalhaus, Tarrent, Lonie (H.Goddard, Lambert

I know its a pretty ordinary team. Any advice would be fantastic.
Have 19 Trades and $956 in the bank.

    HopeIdowell · 02/07/2015 at 21:57

    Your team isn't too bad, especially considering you have 19 trades left. Rucks are your first priority, Minson has a break even of 139 and Leuenberger of 11. Get Minson out. You could take a huge risk and get Gawn for $410,000, or go ultra premo and get Goldstein for 593,000. Personally I think you need to take a few risks. Get Gawn for Minson. I also think this week you should get Lumumba out, move McKenzie down back and get Neal-Bullen in the mids. This will leave you with $326,000 in the bank.

    Next week you can look at trading out two more rookies and/or Leuenberger/Rich (my guess is you want to keep Rockliff), to trade in a premium.

Mac · 02/07/2015 at 17:52


Shaw, Hodge, Murphy, Simpson, Gibson, Newnes, Hamling, Pearce
Fyfe, Beams, Priddis, Parker, Selwood, Treloar, JPK, Rockliff, Lambert, Steele, Dumont
Goldstein, Maric, Read
Gray, Martin, Swan, Franklin, Dahlhaus, Lonie, McLean, Goddard

Was thinking going Dumont to a rookie like Neal-Bullen? then going Lonie to Harvey/Zorko. Thoughts?

    HopeIdowell · 02/07/2015 at 22:04

    You need to say how much money you have in the bank, ad how many trades are left. Lonie still has cash left in him though, and it sounds like Dumont might play out the season. It could be a good week to hold off on trades, depending on how many you have left.

John · 02/07/2015 at 17:56

Considering Naitanui as VC. Has an average of 124 against the dees and is in ripping form as of late. Thoughts?

    Donavan · 02/07/2015 at 18:16

    Worth a try. Will probably score well, and Im guessing Fyfe is Captain.

      Swans2012 · 02/07/2015 at 22:27

      Id be a little cautious as big maxy Gawn has been going well for the dees!

    dognino · 02/07/2015 at 23:34

    I'm doing the same, Nic Nat VC , into Fyfe

Harry · 02/07/2015 at 18:01

Have martin gray edwards dalhaus and swan in forward line and can get anyone as F6. thoughts on who I should get?

    Mac · 02/07/2015 at 18:06

    Harvey, Zorko, Riewoldt.

    mcleal10 · 02/07/2015 at 18:07

    Goddard or lids

      Donavan · 02/07/2015 at 18:24

      Goddard, Lids still likely to get re-injured at some stage.

Simon · 02/07/2015 at 18:14

In a pickle… Firstly I have 6 trades left. Do I keep rough or trade him? My bench cover would be Tarrant for him.
Next do I keep Oxley or trade Oxley? Other defenders for d6 are hamling or lever. Is it worth keeping rough and trade Oxley and Tarrant for Hannebery and lambert.

    Donavan · 02/07/2015 at 18:23

    With 5 trades remaining I think you need to hold both Roughead & Oxley.

    Think Roughead is only missing one game, and Oxley is worth keeping whilst he is still performing.

      Tyler · 02/07/2015 at 20:13

      People are saying 2-3 weeks for Roughy

Donavan · 02/07/2015 at 18:17

Thinking of going Franklin to Dahlhaus.

I have 10 trades remaining, and am full premo.

Thoughts please.

    Glorin · 02/07/2015 at 19:13

    No if you have cover. Bigger ceiling on Franklin.

tom · 02/07/2015 at 18:18

Is Neal-Bullen a good rookie option? Already have Steele and Lambet?

Nat Fyfe · 02/07/2015 at 18:22

Hey Community

Thoughts on my team and plan?

7 trades and 90k in the bank

Def: Shaw, Gibbo, Ox, Simpson, Hooker, Smith (Lever, Hamling)

Mid: Fyfe, Pendles, Danger, Beams, Wines, Sloane, JPK, Hodge (Boston, Lambert, Amon)

Ruc: Goldy, Nic Nat (Cox)

Fwd: Gray, Swan, Martin, Buddy, Goddard, Bont (Steele, Lamb)

This week I will look to trade Sloane to Parker so after this week I will have 6 trades and nothing in the bank.

After this I will look to trade in Ablett for Oxley via Hodge when Ablett's price goes down and to get the cash to afford this I will downgrade Lever.

This will leave me with 4 trades for any LTI and for any luxury upgrades if I'm lucky enough.


    Deadly · 03/07/2015 at 13:33

    Ablett 600k + Rookie 102k = Ox 400k + Lever 300k. You are going to need everything go your way over the next 3 weeks to afford

Tony · 02/07/2015 at 18:22

Hey Guys who do you think to make vc Parker Pendles or Goldstein

    luke · 02/07/2015 at 18:42

    Goldy then parker for mine. Pendles only 2 scores above 130 for the season. Goldy has 5 scores above 130 and a 128 and is playing gold coast. Parker averaging 129(if you take out his 59) over his last 7 games with 3 games of 130 or more.

Donavan · 02/07/2015 at 18:26

Who to put on the field at D6, Brodie Smith or Adam Saad?

I have no loophole available.

hey · 02/07/2015 at 18:26

thoughts on Marc Murphy?

    Donavan · 02/07/2015 at 18:28

    Got him in 2 weeks ago, he is playing well under John Barker's coaching, and Kruezers return.

    Definately worth consideration.

    mcleal10 · 03/07/2015 at 13:31


Mitch · 02/07/2015 at 18:35

Sloane for Hanners, Danger, Priddis???
350k in bank, 11 trades with 1 defender spot to fill

    Mitch · 02/07/2015 at 18:35

    Jpk too

      Donavan · 02/07/2015 at 18:40

      Priddis or Danger, but Id go Priddis

    Youngy · 02/07/2015 at 18:49

    JPK, wont be seeing him cheaper than he is for the rest of the season

tom · 02/07/2015 at 18:35

what should i do with docherty?

    BundyBear · 02/07/2015 at 18:45

    I got Docherty. Moving him out, Just not sure who to get back in his place

    Tophawk · 04/07/2015 at 22:46

    Hold hold hold

Tommy · 02/07/2015 at 18:36

Thoughts on Dumont to Maynard? He's named this week, and he has DEF/MID DPP with is priceless. Even if he doesn't get a game, it allows me to Swing Hodge back and into the midfield. Good choice? Or should I get a rookie on the bubble like Neal-Bullen?

    @KingWinter7 · 02/07/2015 at 18:47

    Preferably i'd go to Neal-Bullen.
    Collingwood have a few to come in Reid, Greenwood, Grundy, Goldsack etc…

    Jeff · 02/07/2015 at 18:48

    Maynard was named this week

Mark · 02/07/2015 at 18:37

Thoughts on Jobe Watson, Travis Boak, Brent Harvey,

or any other under 510k

    Tommy · 02/07/2015 at 18:41

    Harvey is a good option. I'm bringing him into my forward line this week

    Liam · 02/07/2015 at 18:48


    Youngy · 02/07/2015 at 19:10

    JPK if you already have him I would probably go Harvey, he's got his 400th game in a couple of weeks and could go big!

      BundyBear · 03/07/2015 at 01:25


@KingWinter7 · 02/07/2015 at 18:45

Best downgrade option for DMac? Presumably the one with the best job security

Neal-Bullen (Melb), Edwards (Ess) or McLean (WB).

And best VC option? With the C locked in on Fyfe

Pendles, Gray, Dusty, Armitage, Goldy

Youngy · 02/07/2015 at 18:47

Do I bring in Mckernal or Gawn to cover Franklin this week or just put Steele on field??

And which defender to I bring in for Oxley already have Shaw, Higgins, Newnes, Simpson and Smith! Can afford anyone, but am also looking for value at the same time.

Here is my team! 12 trades left and 250k in bank!

    @KingWinter7 · 02/07/2015 at 18:52

    Keep Buddy and put Steele on field. Upgrade Oxley to Hodge

    Tyler · 02/07/2015 at 20:17

    Pfft if I had 12 trades and 250k I would be getting rid of griffo ASAP

      Youngy · 02/07/2015 at 21:12

      I have faith in Griffen…

      What if he comes good? I'll see how he goes this week

        BundyBear · 03/07/2015 at 01:24

        What if LOLOLOL . yeah maybe he will, maybe he wont. I dont have Griffen for that very reason. No certanty to do anything

          Youngy · 04/07/2015 at 08:46

          Your gut is all you can trust in this game.

    RollingTheDice · 03/07/2015 at 00:05

    I'd trade Oxley, switch Mckenzie to back line and get an ultra premo mid. That way you can use both mid and def loophole options and should get more points from a gun mid like Priddis/Danger over Hodge/Houli who have similar BE's.

    Keep Buddy, play Steele.

min0008 · 02/07/2015 at 18:53

Who to start on the field out of Hamling, Lever or Pearce? I'm thinking Hamling

    @KingWinter7 · 02/07/2015 at 18:57

    I have the same problem. I'm going Lever

    hedski · 02/07/2015 at 19:32

    I’m going hamling

Harry · 02/07/2015 at 18:56

Montagne or parker

    Youngy · 02/07/2015 at 19:05

    Probably Parker, but both good options

YellowNBlack · 02/07/2015 at 18:58

hi all,

could really use some help on what do.. team is:

H Shaw, C Enright, K Simpson, B Smith, A Oxley, J Hamling Bench A Perce, J Lever

N Fyfe, S Pendlebury, P Dangerfield, J Selwood, J Kennedy, B Ellis, J Newnes, P Cripps Bench A Boston, T Dumont, K Lambert

T Goldstein, I Maric Bench R O'Brien

D Swan, R Gray, D Martin, B Goddard, L Dalhaus, T Mitchell Bench J Steele, S Higgins

already made one trade this week did sloane to dangerfield

have 8 trades left and only $22.5K (after 1 trade this round).

i really want to get Higgins on ground in the backline but not sure who to chop or even if i swap him to the mids i would need to bench Newnes or Cripps.

any help would be greatly appreciated as i cannot decide what to do.

thanks community

    HopeIdowell · 02/07/2015 at 23:41

    A good trade to make, but you can wait until just before the game, especially considering they are on the same team.

    You can't swap Higgins into the mids, only the backs.

    Sell Oxley, move Higgins into the backline. Move Steele into the forwardline and buy Neal-Bullen. This should leave you with 317000.

      RollingTheDice · 03/07/2015 at 00:31

      Seeing as you currently have all your players playing, I'd consider trading Oxley to a strategic doughnut in Payne (102k mid/fwd). This frees up cash to make moves next week and a constant loophole option for the rest of year. Higgins will also be in your back line.

Donavan · 02/07/2015 at 19:00

Shark Move or Insanity

Out – Maric & Lonie
In – Kreuzer & Zorko

Also Zorko or Rioli or any other forward under $454k. Already have Motlop & Gunston.


    Youngy · 02/07/2015 at 19:04

    If it works…. Hats off to ya mate!

KJU FC · 02/07/2015 at 19:01

VC on Priddis? Up against Melbourne this week

Last time he versed a weaker side he ended up scoring a lazy 196

not sure whether to go him or Hannebery

    Youngy · 02/07/2015 at 19:05

    I'd put the VC on Priddis

    judd0 · 02/07/2015 at 20:51

    Melbourne tag well though, but he is a beast, I did consider this move also.
    I've put the VC on Goldy and C on Fyfe.

      BundyBear · 03/07/2015 at 01:23

      Hmmm good question. Hasnt Vince been tagging the crap out of every good midfielder ? Priddid is a gun though

ryan · 02/07/2015 at 19:02

who to trade for sloane?


    ryan · 02/07/2015 at 19:10

    help someone quickly!!!

      YellowNBlack · 02/07/2015 at 19:18

      out of those 4 i would pick hannebury.. but if you can afford danger that would be best

        Donavan · 02/07/2015 at 19:45

        Hanners or Armitage

Mitch · 02/07/2015 at 19:02

Kennedy or Hanners for rest of the year?

    Donavan · 02/07/2015 at 19:46


    Youngy · 02/07/2015 at 21:11

    Kennedy, he is much better value for his price! might be replying to late haha

    BundyBear · 03/07/2015 at 01:21


Youngy · 02/07/2015 at 19:03

IN: Ablett

Anyone else excited to see the God up and about?

    matt · 02/07/2015 at 21:32

    l bet the god squad are. will be like Moses returning from the desert. just in time too. looked like evil was starting to prevail at the suns

      BundyBear · 03/07/2015 at 01:21

      Im waiting a week or two before I get him. His shoulder will be a target. Besides that my team has been going well without him. He wont make his BE this week, so he is sure to go down in value. But thats just my opinion

papa · 02/07/2015 at 19:08


    BundyBear · 03/07/2015 at 01:19

    Bit hard when u only get 2 trades

      Tyler · 03/07/2015 at 11:15

      I think papa was just talking about the general in's of the AFL and not trading in sc

Mark · 02/07/2015 at 19:27

Hey guys, just wanting to get some ideas of what I should do this week:
Backs: Higgins, Taylor, Lumumba, Ibbotson, Newnes, Oxley (Saad, Hamling)

Mids: Fyfe, J P Kennedy, Pendelbury, Selwood, Griffen, Rich, Rockliff, Cripps (McKenzie, Steele, Ellis- Yolman)

Rucks: Minson, Leuenberger (Read)

Forwards: Martin, Swan, Mitchell, Dahalhaus, Tarrent, Lonie (H.Goddard, Lambert

I know its a pretty ordinary team. Any advice would be fantastic.
Have 19 Trades and $956 in the bank.

    Donavan · 02/07/2015 at 19:34

    Leuenberger and Ellis-Yolman to Sandilands & Dangerfield would be my first 2 trades.

    judd0 · 02/07/2015 at 20:49

    It's not that bad a side man, make 2 upgrades this weekend and 2 next and you'll have a very solid side.

    Derek · 02/07/2015 at 22:36

    Oxley to Higgens or McGovern. This will give you a complete Swing set. DPP fed/def via HGoddard.

hedski · 02/07/2015 at 19:34

Parker vc. Goldy cap.

    Donavan · 02/07/2015 at 19:37

    Guessing you dont have Fyfe

      Tyler · 02/07/2015 at 20:20

      Goldy is putting up scores almost as good as fyfes, plus goldy is up against the suns

      hedski · 02/07/2015 at 21:34

      Bang on

    Youngy · 02/07/2015 at 21:10


Tophawk · 02/07/2015 at 19:37

Traded Sloane out for JPK this week. At 479K that is a bargain IMO.

    Derek · 02/07/2015 at 19:48

    Not fair. I had JPK from start. Now everyone can afford him

      Tophawk · 02/07/2015 at 20:10

      Lets hope he becomes un affordable fast.

      If tonight is any indication, you have to be happy.


      Tyler · 02/07/2015 at 20:20

      I traded him in when he was around 540k, and I thought he was cheap then!

Gold Rush · 02/07/2015 at 19:38

Spewin Bennell out, just luv watching him break through the lines, rip snorta of a bloke I hear.

    Donavan · 02/07/2015 at 19:47

    Suck it up GR

    Tyler · 02/07/2015 at 20:21


    BundyBear · 03/07/2015 at 01:18


Derek · 02/07/2015 at 19:49

Brought in Parker this week and promoted him straight to VC

    Tophawk · 02/07/2015 at 20:15

    Steady start by Parker. In my team also. The guy is a machine. Could be a good VC option tonite. In hindsight, right now Kennedy would be a great option too. 😉

    Would not be surprised if Parker finishes top of the heap tonight

Tophawk · 02/07/2015 at 20:30

JPK is putting on a clinic!!

Just a lazy 101 SC points at half time. That is incredible with another half to play.

After bringing in this week I am a real happy chappy!

    Derek · 02/07/2015 at 21:11

    I opened the batting this week with Parker & JPK and Gray at first drop. Happy to half time

      Youngy · 02/07/2015 at 22:22

      Look's like you are off to a good start, hopefully you can climb back up the ranks Derek!

      Also opened the batting tonight with the same trio.

        Derek · 02/07/2015 at 22:27

        Yep. 3 for 375 at stumps on the first day. Happy with that.

        My middle order of Pendlebury, swan, SMitchell and Cloke I’m a bit worried about. I can loophole big Cloke and might make him 12th man.

          Deadly · 03/07/2015 at 13:37

          3/407 but probably rain overnight and turn Adelaide into Headingly.

      Jambo · 03/07/2015 at 10:29

      I opened up the week with Kieran Jack and Luke Parker. 2 for 285! Oh yeah.

    Youngy · 02/07/2015 at 21:16

    Finally he is coming good!

    Hope he is in ya team Tophawk

      Tophawk · 02/07/2015 at 22:10

      He is in my side Youngy. Dont you worry about that!

Youngy · 02/07/2015 at 21:09

Damn… Why did I take the VC off JPK and put it on Pendles WHY!

    BundyBear · 03/07/2015 at 01:18

    Hmmm good question. I dont know. Why did you do that ?

    Jambo · 03/07/2015 at 11:21

    Why are you complaining? Pendles is every chance is score that or more.

    If JPK had've scored poorly, you would feel quite chuffed.

    Tyler · 03/07/2015 at 22:40

    Hahaha paid off big time mate! Take 172 every day of the week

    Jambo · 04/07/2015 at 07:14

    Youngy, 184 for Pendles. I told you it would work out. Well done mate.

      Youngy · 04/07/2015 at 19:49

      Haha, Thanks mate, can't believe you called that

        Jambo · 04/07/2015 at 20:26

        Neither can I. It’s hilarious. Haha

matt · 02/07/2015 at 21:17

SCaddict · 02/07/2015 at 22:07

Nice to see Titch back to tonning up even with the run with role.

    Derek · 02/07/2015 at 22:22

    He did well. At 1/2 time I thought he was looking at under 80

    Youngy · 02/07/2015 at 22:25

    His 9 tackles definitely helped

    Swans2012 · 03/07/2015 at 07:05

    yep was a bit nervous at quater time but did it easy in the end, really good unselfish performance. That’ll be enough to get horse off his back as well, lock him in for the rest of the season

BundyBear · 02/07/2015 at 22:19

Have the VC on Hanneberry. I want to take his score. Have Sloane on the bench. If i put Sloane on the field and put the C on him and put Lewis on the bench and make him my emergency. Will I get Hanneberries score as captain ? and Lewis score cause he is my emergency ? Just checking to see if Im doing this right. Thx for any advice

    Derek · 02/07/2015 at 22:23

    You got it. But why you keeping Sloane?

      HopeIdowell · 02/07/2015 at 22:43

      Yep, not trading out Sloane is money not gaining you points. Get rid of him.

        BundyBear · 02/07/2015 at 22:45

        Im using sloane to get abblet next week or the week after.

      BundyBear · 02/07/2015 at 22:47

      I have a full team this week. just kept him so I could get Ablett next week or the week after. wanted to save as many trades as possible. only have 6 left

        Swans2012 · 03/07/2015 at 07:08

        I’m with you, unfortunately I decided to keep Wallis and Cripps for a couple with the same plan in mind, except I’ll be taking rocky and Ablett. The unfortunate part is I had jpk locked in all week, ahh well I reckon rocky will out score him in the long run….

HopeIdowell · 02/07/2015 at 22:23

Backs: Shaw, Higgins, Newness, Simpson, Saad, Hamling (Pearce, Beasly)

Mids: Fyfe, Dangerfield, Priddis, Pendlebury, Blicavs, Montagna,Cripps, Ellis-Yolman (Heeney, Boston, Robinson)

Rucks: Goldstein, Maric (Read)

Fwds: Martin, Dahlhaus, Swan, Gray, Goddard, Deledio (Hogan, Lonie)

Bank: $23,200 Trades: 11

Looking to trade out Hogan for McKernan. This will give me swing ruck cover in case one of my rucks are injured, even though I lose a little money as he is more expensive, though it looks like he will play out the season.

Also looking to trade out Cripps for Beams, he is expensive, and there is a risk his output will drop once Rockliff returns, but I see Brissy putting Rockliff in the Forward line for much of the time to reduce the impact on his ribs.

My other option is to trade out Cripps, move Goddard into the midfield (for now) and trade in Gawn as my swing Ruck. Does anyone think he can keep his form up? I could then also trade out Hogan and in either Lambert or Steele and have 350,000/360,000 in the bank. Both players are DP and I would move into the midfield sooner rather than later.

    Derek · 02/07/2015 at 22:30

    Don’t worry about ruck cover. Trade if one of your rucks gets injured. Waste now. Just keep that trade until you need it.

      HopeIdowell · 02/07/2015 at 22:54

      Good point. Still need to trade this round to get another premium in. I am lacking 2 in the mids and two down back. I have decided to worry about the mids now as backs seem to seesaw more than other positions.

      So, either Lambert or Steele in for Hogan? Both are DP. If I trade out one of them and then Ellis-Yolman, I can trade in Beams, and have 30,000-20,000 left.

      Ward is another mid I have been looking at, but he hasn't been getting much love, do you know why?

        Donavan · 02/07/2015 at 23:03

        I like Hogan & CEY out for Steele & Beams.

        I think that is solid trading

        I wouldnt be stressed about moving Cripps, he has been playing very well in recent months.

        Agree you dont need to have a ruck back-up. With Blicavs in the midfield, if either of your rucks went down, surely you would move Blicavs into the ruck, and grab another midfielder.

          HopeIdowell · 02/07/2015 at 23:52

          I like the trades as well.. I am still curious as the to lack of love regarding Ward, he seems to doing well, but lacking backers.

          Cripps has been awesome, and you make a great point about keeping him as a back up mid if Blicavs needs to be used as a back up ruck.

Klopp · 02/07/2015 at 22:47

Anyone know if you can reverse trades in rolling lockout? I brought in McLean for this round but now want to bring in Gawn instead. Can this be done?

    judd0 · 02/07/2015 at 22:50

    Nah mate unfortunately you can't reverse trades once the round has started.

      HopeIdowell · 02/07/2015 at 22:59

      Yeah. If none of the trades you are looking at making have the first game of the round, you should always wait.

nick · 02/07/2015 at 23:11

Hi community,
Does anyone now who much JPK will go up this week?

    coutinho · 02/07/2015 at 23:47

    His breakeven's 133 and he got 143, shouldn't be going up by too much. Reckon he'll be around the 490K-495K mark

    coutinho · 02/07/2015 at 23:49

    disregard my previous post, that was the josh kennedy from west coast 🙁
    JPK's actual breakeven is 74, so he'll be around 510-520K then

      BundyBear · 03/07/2015 at 01:15

      Whats wrong with JPK from the eagles ?

    SCaddict · 02/07/2015 at 23:50

    Roughly $30K so at around $510K next week he will still be reasonable value for those yet to jump aboard the JPK Express.

Tom · 03/07/2015 at 02:06

Thoughts on trading McKernan in as a forward/ruck bench cover

    Dave2008 · 03/07/2015 at 04:31

    I was thinking the same but now not too sure. I’m getting Gray in next week as last F then will need another defender and at least two midfielders. So its either Gawn via Martin for CEY or downgrade but I might need an upgrade to win league game. Ruck back up not needed? So what to do ???

    13 trades 97k

Shocking news to wake to. Rest In Peace Phil Walsh. Deepest sympathies to his family, friends, and all at Adelaide Crows. Best wishes to his wife still being treated by doctors. #WeFlyAsOne It's a scary world we live in

Mac · 03/07/2015 at 09:22

Sad news waking up and hearing that Phil Walsh has been murdered by his own son. Tragic. I hope his family and especially his wife is ok because she has been hospitalised.I don't think they will end up playing the game. They should give both teams 2 points, and I don't care about Supercoach points. If we are caring about what they will do with SC points, we need to have a damn hard look at ourselves. RIP Phil Walsh.

    hedski · 03/07/2015 at 09:27

    Agreed. RIP.

    Derek · 03/07/2015 at 09:49

    All games should be called off this week.

      carlashirley90 · 03/07/2015 at 10:01

      True true should the Adelaide vs Geelong game is not to be played then this round of SC should be shafted completely. If they can't do that then they should actually look into scoring the Adelaide and Geelong players to their respective avg. AFL has no choice but to draw the game I reckon, can't stuff in a game missed around the fixture.

      Being a Crows fan from age 7 just can't give a stuff about SuperCoach right now

I N Pieman · 03/07/2015 at 09:40

RIP Phil Walsh. Unbelievable

carlashirley90 · 03/07/2015 at 10:03

RIP Walsh and my heart goes out to his wife I mean that is not easy to get your mind around losing your family all together

iamme · 03/07/2015 at 10:15

Wow Shocking news! I think the rest of the round should be canceled out of respect for Phil Walsh. you got to wonder how the Crows will be able to play football at all for quite some time.

RIP Phil Walsh

Jambo · 03/07/2015 at 10:16

I just heard of Phil Walsh's murder. He is one of many around the world who passed away or killed by another. I believe the saddest thing about it is that his son murdered him. Once his son realised what he's done, he will feel sick and numb. Let's not get angry with thePhil Walsh's son, he is just another brother of the family of humankind.

Thoughts and prayers with the Walsh family and Adelaide football Club right now.

Wattsieesq · 03/07/2015 at 10:40

Absolutely tragic news about Phil Walsh. Rest in peace. A great character of football, taken too soon.

Luke · 03/07/2015 at 10:55

kavanagh, maynard or boekhurst on field?

    Kev · 03/07/2015 at 14:43

    Loophole if you can

Luke · 03/07/2015 at 10:57

i hope its not in bad taste to ask for sc advice on such a tragic morning^

    derek · 03/07/2015 at 11:40

    I think it might be Luke. don't think you will get much help today

Trent · 03/07/2015 at 11:00

Should i trade out B.Dale for Steele this week or not?

R.I.P Phil Walsh

    @AusSports84 · 03/07/2015 at 11:12

    Only if you need to play him on field
    RIP PW

@AusSports84 · 03/07/2015 at 11:11

If the Crows vs Cats game is cancelled this weekend, I wonder what happens to those SC players?

    derek · 03/07/2015 at 11:41

    there is no way the AFL will make the crows players play footy this weekend.

      LongJimmy · 03/07/2015 at 12:32

      Yeah let the players decide what is ok

David · 03/07/2015 at 11:15

i stated that the players in those teams should be scored by the players average for the year so far that is if the game is scrapped.
Fairest way to resolve this i think

    Kev · 03/07/2015 at 14:42

    I don't think so, David. Donuts for all or maybe they'll go with best 18 scorers

      I N Pieman · 03/07/2015 at 14:47

      I agree Kev. We are used to & coming off the bye rounds. Almost every team would have players from at least one of those sides. Best 18

        David · 03/07/2015 at 15:32

        best 18 is not a fair outcome at all for other coaches who strategically traded players through the bye rounds for close to full premium teams. It is not difficult for SC to appoint scores to the players that were listed for the game before getting cancelled.
        And the type of points to its fairest degree is the players avg score to date…..

          Patch · 03/07/2015 at 18:02

          As seen today mate, life isn't always fair.

Sarah · 03/07/2015 at 12:06

In a total state of disbelief and shock this morning. RIP Phil Walsh. Such a sudden and tragic end. You'll be deeply missed mate. Even though I never met you, as a crows supporter it's hit hard and I'm utterly devastated. My thoughts and prayers are with your family and those close to you.

derek · 03/07/2015 at 14:03

Cats v Crows game has been cancelled. 2 Pts each.

David · 03/07/2015 at 14:25

Players to get there av in sc. R.I.P Phill Walsh.

    Johno · 03/07/2015 at 14:42

    I presume that only includes players named in the 22 yesterday. i.e not Sloanedog??

      David · 03/07/2015 at 14:46


    Brett · 03/07/2015 at 14:52

    Where did you get this from?

    Frank · 03/07/2015 at 15:03

    I'm using Read for captain's loophole. Will he get a 0 being his season average or a non playing donut?

    Timmmy · 03/07/2015 at 15:05

    Fairest solution I suppose. The guy I'm planning has the C on O'Reilly so I hope that means he loses his C 🙂

    randomcliche · 03/07/2015 at 15:10

    I don’t think you know what you are talking about given the conversation on Twitter. See @petejank from virtual sports.

    Dean · 03/07/2015 at 15:23

    David where did you get this info from?

    David · 03/07/2015 at 17:05

    They released that’s what they are doing on afl fantasy and sc will release it will be doing the same soon.

KJU FC · 03/07/2015 at 14:28

good decision to call the game off.

It wouldve been asking for a lot from the players to get themselves up and ready to go to war without their leader.

I hope Adelaide or Geelong dont miss out on finals by 2 premiership points though.

RIP Phil Walsh.

    judd0 · 03/07/2015 at 15:35

    Similarly I hope they don't make the finals by 2 points.
    RIP Phil Walsh

I couldn't believe what I heard this morning, it was a shock to my system. A tragedy like this just goes to show how serious Mental awareness really is, we often overlook the seriousness of it.

I feel numb and shocked.

    Dean · 03/07/2015 at 15:07

    RIP Welshy

unscrupulous playa · 03/07/2015 at 15:14

What a tragic situation. Very dumbfounded when I heard the news on the radio waking up.

SC wise there will be no points for the Crows and Cats players so I am taking the chance to get rid of Jelwood and Betts. Wasn't going to trade this week but need to take advantage of the situation.

As cruel as that sounds SC will go on until the rest of the season and there is no point throwing it away to be "sensitive" to this unfortunate incident.

Very unlucky for those who have been near the pointy end of the SC leadboard and will be affected by this.

    randomcliche · 03/07/2015 at 15:18

    I’m holding fire till I hear from @petejank via Twitter.
    Your ruthlessly

      unscrupulous playa · 03/07/2015 at 15:25

      who's that?

      and whats he gonna do about it?

      it is quite obvious according to SC rules (which offers prize money and has a license for this) that a player who does not play scores ZERO.

      there is NO way they will give players a SEASON AVGE as a score- as this is illegal and akin to making up or fixing results which is not allowed where prize money is on offer.

      If anything other than donuts are given I would be very surprised and a few would be outraged if it affected their standing in the competition.

        Baggyizzle · 03/07/2015 at 15:29

        If you are going to through around that its illegal to give them 0 please reference your statements. I don't interpret this as 'fixing results' but rather finding a fair and reasonable outcome.

        My money is on them finding a system which is fair and reasonable – I look forward to reading your court transcript when you take them to court to sue.

          derek · 03/07/2015 at 15:34

          i'll have 2 donuts and I've already made my trades this week to bring in Parker. I could have traded differently and had no donuts. oh well. more important things to worry about.

          the bare shoulda · 03/07/2015 at 15:45

          who said anything about giving 0 is illegal

        randomcliche · 03/07/2015 at 15:33

        I don’t disagree, but there is contact law and the maximum of equity and I don’t presume to know how the two will interact in this case.

          Baggyizzle · 03/07/2015 at 15:43

          Well done, you've done Contract law and Equity law. I would say that Supercoach delegates the power to Champion Data to allocate the points as deemed fit, fair and reasonable in the circumstances would be to make this another bye week or average over season/3/5.

          Again, if you are going to make bold statements saying its Illegal (in breach) for them to do that, reference something.

            the bare shoulda · 03/07/2015 at 16:06

            read beachball comment lower.

            its a competition- with money- and a license- and clear cut rules. it's not its own entity like the AFL so cant just decide to give out points the same way the AFL can decide to make a game a draw. Just wait and see what happens if the Cats or Crows miss top 4 or top 8 by only 2 points. It would be considered fixing or influencing the outcome if SC just decided to make up artificial scores that aren't based on real world performances. Donuts with emergencies would be the correct outcome. If players aren't named to play the you need emergencies. No Cats or Crows players will be named to play Sunday so they get donuts. Quite simple.

        Youvegotnoclue! · 03/07/2015 at 15:34

        I think you're getting a little ahead of yourself buddy. Let's wait until there is an official announcement as we are just speculating our asses off otherwise.

        It's a very unusual situation to say the least and the game's custodians are formulating a solution as we speak.

          the bare shoulda · 03/07/2015 at 15:47

          hey mate if dane swan died this week and didn't play ya think they would give him any points ya goose? so how the hell do you think they are going to make-up or invent an outcome in this sitch other than zero points? you don't play in SC you don't score- simple

            The One Ring · 03/07/2015 at 15:59

            one player vs 2 teams missing is a little different. Try comparing apples with apples, instead of logic with your goose brained thinking.

            Youvegotnoclue! · 03/07/2015 at 16:19

            Not sure who made you king of Supercoach ruledom all of a sudden. Think your ego is writing cheques your body can't cash.

            Let's just wait until someone who actually knows what they are talking about announces something officially, as amusing as it is to read you waffling out of your ass in the mean time.

      The One Ring · 03/07/2015 at 15:44

      unscruplous playa only halfway fair thing to do is give any Adelaide and Geelong players their predicted scores. Just b/c your crappy team is clearly minus any Adelaide or Geelong players. I'm in contention for the top prize and holding Dangerfield, Laird and Blicavs… so go and stick your CAPSLOCK where the sun don't shine spud.

        BundyBear · 03/07/2015 at 15:51

        Thats enough kids. be nice

        Gareth · 03/07/2015 at 15:53

        Turning the round into a bye round would avoid legal challenges (e.g. someone could challenge that unfair scores were given) and be more fairer than giving out doughnuts. Hope the right decision is met.

          Timmmy · 03/07/2015 at 16:10

          Yeah donuts counted but round treated like a bye round (top 18 player scores only) is the fairest solution.

            The One Ring · 03/07/2015 at 16:22

            nope that is not a fair solution at all. I'm already missing Buddy plus 2 Adelaide players and 1 Geelong player, so how is that at all fair? The AFL have already announced that –

            "The following rules will apply for AFL Fantasy for this game.

            – All Adelaide and Geelong players listed to play this weekend will be awarded their season average;"

            So no reason why this should not be the case for SC.

        TruthHurts · 04/07/2015 at 21:11

        WAS in contention 😉

cozza · 03/07/2015 at 15:18

Has there been any official word on what is happening to SC or fantasy points from the Adelaide/Geelong game? A lot of theories going around, but does anyone know anything official?

    Jillo · 03/07/2015 at 15:20

    Keep your eye on @petejank

    There will likely be an official announcement in the next few hours.

      BundyBear · 03/07/2015 at 15:52

      I dont have or know how to use twitter. So how would I find out what they are doing ?

        David · 03/07/2015 at 16:01

        more to the point "so how would i know you don't have or know how to use twitter" sit back and have beer mate

          BundyBear · 03/07/2015 at 16:14

          Ahh good question. You dont know but I do. Having a Bundy instead of a beer. maybe a few

            David · 03/07/2015 at 16:46

            Bundy even better 🙂

David · 03/07/2015 at 15:51

top 3 supercoach teams by total rank all have 2 players from the cancelled game and the consist of Dangerfield, Selwood, Blicavs and Laird damn!!

KJU FC · 03/07/2015 at 15:57

Afl fantasy just posted this on facebook

"Statement on AFL Fantasy for round 14:
The following rules will apply for AFL Fantasy for this game.
– All Adelaide and Geelong players listed to play this weekend will be awarded their season average;
– Any new players (who have not played previously) will be awarded points in line with their break-even score;
– Throughout the weekend, Geelong and Adelaide players will appear as ‘DNP’, until the points are awarded at the end of the round (not during the game as per normal);
– Lock out will be lifted slightly later than usual on Sunday night."

surely this means that supercoach will do the same

I know there is much bigger things to worry about but just letting everyone know.

    BundyBear · 03/07/2015 at 16:08

    Im thinking that if a player doesnt play he dont get a score, Happens every other game. I know the circumstances are not normal. but normal rules must apply I think

    David · 03/07/2015 at 16:08

    said this should happen right from the start, how is any other decision more fair than this c'mon comen sense is needed but my Dad always said that you should never rely on others sense as it may not be comen place.

      BundyBear · 03/07/2015 at 16:12

      I for one agree with you David. I have bench cover. So will put my crows players on the bench this weekend

        David · 03/07/2015 at 16:18

        yep i have Danger and Smith with bench cover so be it….

beachball jolly · 03/07/2015 at 16:01

Authorised under ACT Permit No. TP15/00148 This is an official license where all rules etc have to be lodged and stated before the permit is granted.

Anyone arguing legal stuff and making up outcomes give up already.

SC rules state quite clearly how points are scored and determined. If your onfield player scores 0 then only relevant selected emergencies will score points

    Baggyizzle · 03/07/2015 at 16:22

    Well then, making it another bye round with best 18-20 seems like the most effective way. Then the 0's can be handed out as per the rules and SC players aren't that affected.

      Gareth · 03/07/2015 at 16:27

      Agree that is the fairest option, particularly for those in the top percentage.

BundyBear · 03/07/2015 at 16:06

WOW complicated stuff. Glad i got bench cover. Only got Danger and Smith from the crows

Paul Walnuts · 03/07/2015 at 16:12

I have J.Lever – ave is 70 with a BE – 8

    cozza · 03/07/2015 at 16:23

    Apparently for fantasy the player prices will not be changing for next week, so BEs remain the same. We'll see if SC is any different or not.

David · 03/07/2015 at 16:15

I don't care what they do about points right now still feeling sick about this as many others would most definitely would be feeling RIP Walsh

Dean · 03/07/2015 at 16:54

David you started the rumor by saying and I quote:- "i stated that the players in those teams should be scored by the players average for the year so far that is if the game is scrapped.
Fairest way to resolve this i think" END QUOTE

David you then posted another separate post saying and I quote again :- "Players to get there av in sc. R.I.P Phill Walsh"

For what its worth, I agree that receiving the players average will be most fair, otherwise it will mean players listed will score nothing and making it your top 18 such as a bye round doesn't seem fair at all – especially for those who are chasing the $50,000 because they had no time to plan for it, like they did with the bye rounds.

However is saying this, please do not post things when its quite evident nothing is clear yet regarding what's going to happen with Adelaide & Geelong Supercoach scores. Your sending mixed messages mate which isn't right.

    David · 03/07/2015 at 19:01

    O.o i think there were 2 other David's leaving comments lol, i am the one who is just wanting to reach out to Walsh and his family

Dools · 03/07/2015 at 17:10

So I'm hearing the argument correctly ….Some want the Byes to be re-introduced.. Not Fair…Bye rounds where Round X to Y.. Some want Player projected scores… Not Fair…( I have had players playing below their projected score all season JPK, Griffen etc) Some want player Averages to be used … Not Fair….(A players Avg is determined by playing)
I have no idea what this outcome will mean…but lets not forget a man who was important to his family, friends and AFL was killed today
I'm sure the SC rules will be assessed by a legal team and then applied across the board.

    Gareth · 03/07/2015 at 17:23

    Surely for those close to the top it would be more fairer to have the top 18/20 players counted this round as opposed to the situation where many free fall a heap of places due to be given a heap of doughnuts. As someone said, this is about two whole teams, not one player so unprecedented action is required. Whatever the outcome, I hope action is fast because this is starting to distract from the tragic issue at hand.

    Dean · 03/07/2015 at 17:53

    Here Here Dools well said mate.

      tom · 03/07/2015 at 17:56

      do you even english? sick of your comments

OldOcker · 03/07/2015 at 17:23

Top 18 scores as per bye rounds.

RIP Phil Walsh.

    Tyler · 03/07/2015 at 17:30

    Fairest (and most logical) way to do it.

    RIP Walshy

    Dools · 03/07/2015 at 17:40

    Thanks for the update Ock

    Tofor · 03/07/2015 at 17:46

    Thanks for the update.
    Bit of a suprise, thought they'd go with averages.. or even doughnuts (bad luck on the players that can't play? As when they are injured)
    It is what it is.
    RIP Phil Walsh.

      derek · 03/07/2015 at 18:01

      I would have been happy with averages. I have 8 players from Cats & Crows in my team. I can field 20 players, but that includes Lambert, HGoddard & Steele. Oh Well.

        Donavan · 03/07/2015 at 18:19

        Im happy with this resolution. I dont think introducing players receiving points for not gathering possessions would be good, they needed to be treated as non-playing.

        Will be interesting to see what happens next week, as I would imagine next week will be just as difficult as this week with the funeral service, and what is sure to be a full-explanation to what has triggered this sad event.

        Just goes to show, nothing in life should be taken for granted. Wishs & blessings with the Walsh family, and the Adelaide football club.

        Youngy · 03/07/2015 at 21:16

        8 wow, only 1 for me (not counting Read)

      No worries mate just thought I would clear up the theories ASAP.
      Great tribute and Article mate.
      Just not in SC mode today as if this week was not already sad enough.

      RIP Phil Walsh.

    BundyBear · 03/07/2015 at 18:39

    Thanks Ocker

    The One Ring · 03/07/2015 at 18:45

    In contention for the top prize, reverting to the bye rules is a cop out. The other fantasy comps are going with season averages. I feel ripped off, Buddy already on the bench now lose Blicavs, Laird and Danger, SC can get stuffed.

      Nuggety · 04/07/2015 at 00:47

      I hear you mate but gotta remember why

Barney · 03/07/2015 at 18:10

Bugger my projected score was 2407 with only Brodie Smith -who I could have replaced with Hamling. But I think the best 18 is the fair way to go though

Dave · 03/07/2015 at 18:11

So what happens to players I have on the bench that played last night eg Krak. I have more than 18 playing still without the adel cats players. l have krak as emg was goin to use loophole. will I get to use his score or only the 18 on field 1st?

    judd0 · 03/07/2015 at 18:16

    If Krak's score is in the top 18 scores and you have someone not playing in the FWD line you will get his score.
    It's the same as the byes.

    Derek · 03/07/2015 at 19:31

    Need to have E on him and have a non player on field

Connor · 03/07/2015 at 18:16

Approximately how much will Hannebery go up in value? 20-30K?

    OldOcker · 03/07/2015 at 19:12

    Roughly $7,000

      Connor · 03/07/2015 at 19:56

      Cheers mate

Dean · 03/07/2015 at 18:21

Thanks for the update OldOcker much appreciated mate.

Not a fair resolution especially for those fighting for the $50k, I think giving the average score of the starting 22 only would have been a much better solution, it makes it fair and equitable for all. This way those who have more Geelong & Adelaide players will suffer.

However considering the circumstances, we should all be grateful regardless.

Good luck to ALL this week. God Bless & RIP Walshy.

    nick · 05/07/2015 at 14:24

    I have harry taylor in the back line then big sauce in the ruck tom hawkings no bench as franklin got suspended so hope they do give me the points still crap had sit selwood on the pine and play a rookie he scored 90 not to bad I guess

Favalinko U Beauty · 03/07/2015 at 18:27

Words fail me now, such a sad day. RIP Phil Walsh

Nick · 03/07/2015 at 18:38

What to do with the likes of Karnezis and Dale? Want to downgrade but wont get much cash???

boulder strap · 03/07/2015 at 18:40

well- that news has just saved me 2 trades!!!!!!!!!

wont trade til next week now as I have 22 on ground.

Tony · 03/07/2015 at 19:02

Just my 2 cents worth community,
This is a hugely sad and crappy incident.
The average for Crows and Cats theory as well as
The Bye round theory both advantage and disadvantage
Certain teams depending on your team make up and who you had on bench.
The fairest way is to call the whole round off, award both teams 2 points for a draw and move on to next week.
I realize this works better for outright rank rather than leagues, but it’s never going to be black or white.
At least this is just a game and we all get to wake up tomorrow and live our lives !

darkest hr · 03/07/2015 at 19:08

glad I found out now. was going to trade grundy out but now it gives an extra week for his injury. hope hes back next week.

oh yeah- and the bye round system really isn't fair for those who traded in say danger or blics or any of the players. just unlucky I spose. should have just stuck with the rules and given donuts

OzSonic · 03/07/2015 at 19:13

News today has really soured this round, such horrible news. Got Sloan sitting there and was going to switch to Danger. Thinking of swinging him to a FWD and swapping him for McKernan or just switch him with Lambert. Banking some serious cash doing this, bank would have around $600K with McKernan trade around $700K+ with Lambert. 11 trades, cash and about 3 spots to fill. Should I go this way or swap Sloan out for a premo now.

Matt · 03/07/2015 at 19:32

Should allow us to reverse trades in this situation. The two trades I made last night are now pointless.

mcleal10 · 03/07/2015 at 19:41

So should I be holding Bennell now since only the top 18 count? I was originally thinking of swapping in Goddard but by holding Bennell could possibly play next week

    Dean · 03/07/2015 at 20:45

    Hold him, as long as you have 18+ players thats all you need to worry about. Even if it wasn't why would you consider trading out Bennell for Goddard, thats absurd. Bennell has a average of 99 and Goddard has a average of 100..

    Massive waist of a trade in my opinion even if Adelaide & Geelong were playing. If you were considering a change from Bennell to Fyfe, Beams, Priddis, Pendles or Dangerfield then I understand.

      mcleal10 · 03/07/2015 at 21:05

      Are you living under a rock? Bennell isn't injured he is under suspicion for illicit drugs hence he could be out for a very long time. The club decided to rest him the week for health precautions and for him to concentrate on his personal life.

      Therefore, a simple trade to Goddard could be beneficial..

        Josh · 03/07/2015 at 21:14

        I would make the trade if I was you, even if Bennell plays after this round I can't see him being able to perform at his best with the many distractions that will come from this

          TRIGGER HAPPY · 06/07/2015 at 21:40

          Hope u didnt pull the trigger. 30 for BJ ouch. RIP PW.

John · 03/07/2015 at 19:43

Priddis or Beams?

tom · 03/07/2015 at 20:54

I have 8 trades left and still need to upgrade my D6 with no cash.

Do I do one downgrade and upgrade to Brodie Smith or do I use 2 downgrades and upgrade to one of the top 6 defenders?

Josh · 03/07/2015 at 21:08

Does the captains loophole work the same as normal in the 'best 18' style? And if so will the emergency score still count as an onfield score? Thanks

Jambo · 03/07/2015 at 21:14

FYI at half-time of PIes v Hawks:
Lewis 71, Pendles 84, Sidebottom 75, Burgoyne 59, Gibson 25, Shiels 60 and Sam Mitchell 39.

      Had Sammy all year. Very happy

luke · 03/07/2015 at 21:33

Was concerned about emergency loophole not working so looked up the rules. Looks like it is fine to loophole Steele into Boston tomorrow.

From the rules: If you have further available players in any position during these multi-bye rounds, you may set Emergencies for those positions as usual. Emergencies will continue to replace non-starting players in your Starting 22 with the usual rules, in the same position (including any ‘bye’ player that you may have left in your Starting 22) and their score will only count if it is in your Best 18.

Tyler · 03/07/2015 at 21:39

Pendles has cracked the ton already. I forgot who it was that swapped their VC from JPK to Pendles, but whoever it was it may not be that bad

    Jambo · 03/07/2015 at 21:55

    Pendles is 125 at 3QT.

    hedski · 03/07/2015 at 21:57

    Reckon it was youngy tyler was about to post something bout that

      Youngy · 04/07/2015 at 08:41

      Yep feeling pretty good right now, think I might go delete that comment.

    jace · 03/07/2015 at 22:31

    glad i put the vc on pendles. I think i might take that over fyfe.

      Jambo · 03/07/2015 at 22:33

      I would take 172 any day.

Derek · 03/07/2015 at 22:38

If Cloke could kick better than 1.4 I’d be killing it

    hedski · 03/07/2015 at 22:46

    Who’s the better kick do ya reckon derek?
    cloke or jesse white? Ha ha.
    2 weeks in a row he’s pretty much lost game for pies…

      Derek · 03/07/2015 at 23:52

      I’m glad I’m not a Pies fan and have to put with them

        hedski · 03/07/2015 at 23:57

        Yep. Always good for ammo against pies mates.
        Especially j.white lately.

Dean · 03/07/2015 at 22:43

Na don't be crazy dont take the 173 VC, put it on someone else like Fyfe…. Having a captain score 150+ is far and few between since GAJ done his shoulder.

    Jambo · 04/07/2015 at 07:10

    I disagree. CD increased Pendles’ score from 172 to 184. If you had vc on him lock it in.

      Dean · 04/07/2015 at 17:51

      It was a joke mate, didn't you read everything I said "Having a captain score 150+ is far and few between since GAJ done his shoulder"

      Off course you would take a VC 172, 184 or anything around the 120 mark MUST be taken. Otherwise its greed and many people have been caught out by being greedy.

        Jambo · 04/07/2015 at 20:33

        Oh okay. I get it. Tell me about it, it’s like watching “Deal or No Deal”, people getting greedy than losing it.

Jonno · 03/07/2015 at 22:46

Hi community.

I have a dilemma.

I have the v on Pendles and the c on fyfe. Pendles looks to have scored big this week and I’m wanting to pocket his score so this is the situation; everyone on field will potentially score. I have the e on Robinson which he has scored 0.

Now if I bring sloane dog on field and put the c on him and then take Griffen off and put another e on him, what score will be accepted? Bearing in mind there will be 2 players on the bench with the emergency. Please help.

    hedski · 03/07/2015 at 22:53

    I think that will work jonno. Best score from emerg’s will count in your top 18 and you’ll pocket pendles points.
    (I could be wrong. Sry)

      Jonno · 03/07/2015 at 22:54

      Thanks hedski. I hope it does. :/

    Derek · 03/07/2015 at 23:50

    Yep. Well done

@chillburn · 03/07/2015 at 23:11

Traded in jpk (143) and pendlebury (173) as vc this week. Best weekly trades i've ever done

    hedski · 03/07/2015 at 23:17

    Got pendles last week (think he’s ended up on 184).
    Missed JPK this week by 2k 🙁

    Dean · 03/07/2015 at 23:50

    What is your score so far and how many players have played. Thats a bloody awesome couple of trades and a blinder to have the VC on Pendles.

    I had pendles from day 1 but u got him cheap. I'm on 858 after 7 played but no captain played yet. Going VC on Priddis & C on Fyfe.

      @chillburn · 05/07/2015 at 19:49

      I ended up with 2193

    I N Pieman · 04/07/2015 at 08:21

    Brilliant trades chill. Timing impeccable

Dean · 03/07/2015 at 23:16

Jonno if you had the VC on Pendles he is locked in as your player, as long as you have your C on a non playing player such as Sloane then you will DEFIANTLY get pendles double points.

This round is to be treated exactly the same way as a bye round. During the bye rounds most of us used the loophole or put the C on a player who had there bye that round in order to receive the points from our VC.

Here is a link explaining what is happening this round:

Hope this helps mate.

    Dean · 03/07/2015 at 23:35

    Ok if u have 2 emergencies in your midfield lets say, you will score the lowest of the two emergency scores only if they were named to play.

    If you have 2 non players on the field and have 2 emergency selected in your midfield for example, then you will receive both those emergency cores.

    If you have the emergency on a non playing player and if you also chose the emergency on a playing player then you will receive the emergency players points that plays. The only time you don't get the points for a emergency is if you chose a player who is playing, lets say for example Moore from Collingwood tonight was your emergency and if he didn't get called in to play, then your stuck with his 0 score, just as a example.

Dean · 03/07/2015 at 23:45

If Robinson wasn't named to play and you had the emergency on him then that emergency doesn't matter. Your Griffen emergency will be valid.

I should of just wrote this rather then try explain it all. Hope I didn't confuse you mate…

Well done for having Pendles as your VC.

    Jonno · 04/07/2015 at 01:37

    Was absolutely lost but this comment definatly helps. Awesome thanks Dean!

      Dean · 04/07/2015 at 17:55

      Welcome good luck mate.

Derek · 03/07/2015 at 23:58

I can only field 20 on field this week, and 1 of them have to be Hamling and Another has to be one of either Steel, Lambert or HGoddard. Any suggestions.

Had already made my trades on Thursday otherwise I could have fielded 22. Oh well.

    hedski · 04/07/2015 at 00:06

    Ive taken Steele over lambert (left lambert fwd emerg, steele in guts on ground)
    Loopholed maynard tonight only got 51 so will play the bun over him.
    Am playing hamling also.
    Missing Taylor Smith Lever Danger Jelwood Docherty and Stef :'(
    Still got 20 but not lookin flash.

      Tyler · 04/07/2015 at 00:38

      Wouldn’t be too confident with all the gold coast rookies anymore, as the inclusions of swallow and gazza may hurt their scores

    Swans2012 · 04/07/2015 at 11:03

    Yep, just one of those things derek, I’m missing danger, jelwood, smith, Jacobs and lever (who would’ve been loopholed). So a pretty big blow 4 top 22 premos out, top 18 scoring seems to favour those with less adelaide and Geelong players but it is what it is, pretty sure it’ll cost me my spot in the top 100. Like always hindsight is a wonderful thing, if we’d known we could’ve traded differently.

    But anyway I’m not complaining, there is more important things in life than supercoach. rip P.W

Murray · 04/07/2015 at 08:14

Hi community hoping you can clarify something about this top 18 score format.

I have Pendlebury as VC. To get is double score can I put the C on a non player on the field eg dale or even an adelaide or Geel player?

Thanks and good luck this weekend

    I N Pieman · 04/07/2015 at 08:25

    Yes you can muzza. Either of those options will deliver you that monster captain score. Was planning to last minute vc Pendles but things were busy with my kids & I missed out. Oh well

    I N Pieman · 04/07/2015 at 08:30

    vc on nic nat or Goldy people’s?

      Crowmagnon · 04/07/2015 at 08:37

      The first time I ever used the loophole many moons ago, Nic Nat gave me a 340. Take a gamble INP, it's only a VC.

        I N Pieman · 04/07/2015 at 08:42

        Leaning that way crow. 3 of his last 4 have been monsterous. But Goldy seems to like his 154’s. Think he’s had that exact score 3 times

          Crowmagnon · 04/07/2015 at 08:50

          Had Goldy all year. VC'd him a few times. Playing Suns too. #firstworldproblems 🙂

            Crowmagnon · 04/07/2015 at 22:28

            err… hope you went Goldy.

      Youngy · 04/07/2015 at 08:43

      I'd be going Goldy

        hedski · 04/07/2015 at 10:49

        Yeah same had parker vc and hoping goldy will smash he’s 110.

Gareth · 04/07/2015 at 08:48

Had the VC on Pendels – Josh Glenn will finally come in handy now!!

return of the v · 04/07/2015 at 09:13

Wondering if anyone has an idea on how long bennell will be out for. I can trade him to picken to make my defence full premo but i do love him in my forward line. Tom Mitchell comes on ground if i trade bennell out.

    Tyler · 04/07/2015 at 11:46

    no-one knows when he will be back, could be out for the rest of the year if the suns/afl see fit

Andy · 04/07/2015 at 09:25

Hi community,

I have 20 players this week with Sloane on the bench. I’m thinking of trading him but only have $551,000. I’m thinking of getting in Neale. Thoughts? Should I do a downgrade/upgrade to get a Beame/Priddis etc or just hold altogether?

I have 8 trades left and and full premium (if you call Grundy a promo). Thanks.

    I N Pieman · 04/07/2015 at 09:50

    In the same boat Andy. Was going to trade Sloane this week. Sidebum similar price next week & a nice pod to ponder. Gaz on the horizon as well

Mac · 04/07/2015 at 09:28

Neal-Bullen a good option?

    I N Pieman · 04/07/2015 at 09:51

    3 goals for 65 points only is a concern. I wouldn’t

      Mac · 04/07/2015 at 12:03

      Is that sarcasm? Or are you serious?

        wayno1313 · 04/07/2015 at 14:59

        He is serious. He is not a great option

Barney · 04/07/2015 at 10:58

Had the vc on Parker – 110. So who do you think for capt Goldy or Fyfe???

    CoachDamo · 04/07/2015 at 11:29

    Have to go with Fyfe as Captain. I've gone Goldy as VC and Fyfe as C.

    Youngy · 04/07/2015 at 19:58


tommy · 04/07/2015 at 12:06

Best rookie mid option apart from steele and lambert?

Mac · 04/07/2015 at 12:22

With best 18 on field for this round, do emergency loophole players count or do they have to be on the bye. I'm loopholing Dumont and Lambert with Selwood but not sure if my emergency's score will count?

    hedski · 04/07/2015 at 12:34

    I think normally if you have two emergencies on same line you get lowest score but maybe top scores count over byes? More confused?!

hedski · 04/07/2015 at 13:06

Macintosh tigers sub

fair aggit crack · 04/07/2015 at 13:10

WTF is with SC???? The rules state clearly bye rounds 11-13 and non players get 0 points…. so WTF is going on with 18 players or the same as a bye round this week?????????? I brought in Blicavs and Dangerfield——- AND CANT REVERSE TRADES….. THATS CORRUPT….. both the players I traded for Blics and Danger were going UP in value so not only do I lose 2 trades, Ive lost cash AND 2 onfield players.

That's BS changing rules halfway through the season and round—- should have been fair and made the round void.

    hedski · 04/07/2015 at 13:29

    Lifes not fair mate.
    It’s only sc.

      jeffers · 04/07/2015 at 13:44

      LOL- yeah so if someone rights off your car tonight or steals your car tonight make sure you don't care OK. I mean lifes not fair right? What a stupid faaken comment hedski. One might accept that comment in relation to acts of nature or freak accidents but not where clear and calculated descisions have been made. LOL according to your theory either your life is perfect or totally faaked. So when your boss says to stay back and do 15hrs unpaid overtime don't complain OK buddy. LOL lifes not fair. And don't ever whinge if you get a speeding fine for being 3k's over the limit OK buddy..infact coz life aint fair never vent your frustration for anything OK. Couldn't agree more with fair aggit. round should have been void to avoid the slightest advantage or disadvantage to anyone. Just so hedski understands- 100 points overall can be the difference of over 100 places overall

        hedski · 04/07/2015 at 13:51

        Nice rant dickhead

          Dekker · 04/07/2015 at 14:38

          LOL youre the biggest whinger on the site hedski. chill ya flog.

            hedski · 04/07/2015 at 14:49

            Dont reckon I’ve whinged about much dekker.
            200k+ players in same boat.
            as said above just a game.

              CarlaShirly · 04/07/2015 at 17:34

              But that is just the point 200k players are not in the same boat, example Derek has 6 bye players now like others who have 4-6 players from Adelaide and Geelong it just does not make it fair SC wise.

              please understand that, that's all for i would normally stay out of comments like these

                hedski · 04/07/2015 at 17:48

                I have 5 out myself.
                It is just the way it is unfortunately.
                Not tryin to argue.
                Best outcome for a terrible situation.

      Youngy · 04/07/2015 at 19:53

      Couldn't agree more Hedski! Life isn't fair

      Well said

        hedski · 04/07/2015 at 20:22

        Cheers mate. Like I said just a game. But what a fun one ay?
        Big goldy got job done today.

    Tyler · 04/07/2015 at 14:22

    Show some respect mate

      Youngy · 04/07/2015 at 19:57


    dognino · 04/07/2015 at 17:01

    So you would have rather got donuts for blitz and danger instead? Best 18 is the fairest possible solution to an unprecedented situation

    Dean · 04/07/2015 at 17:31

    The AFL and the likes of fantasy footy all had to make prompt dissensions, due to an absolute TRAGEDY.
    When making trades it's ALWAYS best to wait until the teams have been finalised, which generally happens 90 minutes before each game.
    I learnt this the hard way, many times I made my trades early, to later find they have been a late withdrawal, it happens every week.

    Regardless of the decisions Fantasy Footy made, whether they treat it as bye round, or a Void round, or each player receives there Average score, it's impossible to make everyone happy, you can NEVER please everyone

    If there was no game played on Thursday, im almost certain that ALL fantasy footy platforms would have made this round a VOID round, however because the round had already started prior to the TRAGIC indecent that happen early Friday morning, then they really had NO other option but to treat this as a BYE round.

    Considering the circumstances and how both the AFL and ALL fantasy footy handled the situation in such short notice, both the AFL and fantasy footy have done exceptionally well.

    Don't be ungrateful, consider yourself lucky, your still with us mate.

    Juzzy · 04/07/2015 at 23:22

    Maybe relax, go for a walk, hug your kids, family or friends.

Jimmy · 04/07/2015 at 13:56

Need a good rookie downgrade option! Already have Lambert and Steele please!

    Timmy · 04/07/2015 at 19:32

    Don't we all. [email protected] I hope Laverde and Hugh Goddard get a game soon. Slim pickings at present.

    Mke · 04/07/2015 at 19:53

    Geeze that new bloke for Gold Coast with the beard today looked good. You should jump on him.

    Timmy · 04/07/2015 at 22:02

    Daniel WB. Played well in a half a game tonight.

i am your father · 04/07/2015 at 15:02

Watson? what you guys reckon

    return of the v · 04/07/2015 at 15:29

    peptides have worn off,look elsewhere i suggest

      Locked and Loaded · 05/07/2015 at 21:48

      Stupid comment

        CoachDamo · 06/07/2015 at 11:55

        I agree – hilarious stuff Paul, you should write that down and use it again.

        He doesn't look right, I'd assume he's carrying an injury. He's cheap but I wouldn't consider him this year.

xav · 04/07/2015 at 16:53

Been wrecked by the 'bye' Selwood Sloane danger lever Brodie smith blitzavs
To of my league playing tenth and going to loose miserably

dognino · 04/07/2015 at 17:03

I reckon there are gonna be some huge scores this round. Lots of premos are tonning up , and those lucky enough to have the VC on Pendles (not me) . Still sitting on 1215 from 11 , with no C score yet. Going VC on Nic Nat and C on Fyfe .

jjj · 04/07/2015 at 18:07

Thoughts on Marc Murphy from Sloane

    hedski · 04/07/2015 at 19:05

    Been killin it why not?
    Good pod

Bluetackle · 04/07/2015 at 19:11

Gaz is back baby sloane to gaz bang bang

    Mike · 04/07/2015 at 19:47

    If you have the 250 to spare, then yes.

dannyyboyy · 04/07/2015 at 19:12

All eyes on gary. Welcome back mate you are a star.

Timmy · 04/07/2015 at 19:31

Should I take Goldy's 150 as VC or leave the C with Zac Dawson?

    Riley · 04/07/2015 at 19:41

    Without a doubt go with Zac, he is ripe for a good score!

    Youngy · 04/07/2015 at 19:52

    I'd be leaving the C on Dawson

    Gold Rush · 04/07/2015 at 20:05

    Go with your gut and go the Zacman

    dogdogsnutsack · 04/07/2015 at 23:27

    yes to both questions

Tophawk · 04/07/2015 at 20:31

Whacked the VC on Goldstein. 148SC points.

With all the premo mega scores this week,(Pendles 184, JPK 143, Gray 123)

I am gonna take Goldy's points Fyfey. You will probably pump out 200+ tomorrow in revenge, but greed often gets punished!

    @mysterycannon · 05/07/2015 at 11:58

    As a Parker VCer, I hope you're right about Fyfe. Have watched JPK, Pendles and Goldy all pass by without me putting the VC or C on them. Hope I don't regret it…

Dee · 04/07/2015 at 21:12

1 has to go…. Bout, Titch or Buddy. Choose!

    Dee · 04/07/2015 at 21:55


    Donavan · 04/07/2015 at 22:40


    dogdogsnutsack · 04/07/2015 at 23:28

    titch. he isnt g'teed top 22

Dee · 04/07/2015 at 21:25

What scores will I get for Dangerfield, Selwood and Brodie Smith this week? Blue light on them… don’t tell me I need emergencies to cover them, because I only have Steele to cover for Selwood and Dangerfield. Would appreciate it if someone cleared this up for me…. Thanks community!

    Tulendeena · 04/07/2015 at 21:32

    It's a bye round, top 18 scores count

    Adelaide and Geelong players will get a 0

      Dee · 04/07/2015 at 21:54

      thanks champ…. appreciate it. 2K a good score this week I suppose….

Youngy · 04/07/2015 at 22:00

If I have Nic Nat on my bencb with the E and 0 on field, his score will count in the top 18 assuming he scores in the top 18?

Emergency scores still count in bye rounds? Just making sure!


    Donavan · 04/07/2015 at 22:38

    Yes, it will count

Tulendeena · 04/07/2015 at 22:23

A 58 from Dahlhaus is extremely dissapointing after 27 points in 2 minutes

    Tophawk · 04/07/2015 at 22:34

    Yes .

    It took him another 118 minutes to double that.

    Not goodenough

      Derek · 04/07/2015 at 23:32

      He actually spent a lot of time on the ball. Just one of those nights

    Timmy · 05/07/2015 at 09:55

    Yeah trade him out. No good

    @mysterycannon · 05/07/2015 at 11:54

    Yeah, very disappointing score. He was around the ball – seemed to be a fraction too early, then too late, then too short. He had about another 15 "nearly possessions"… he'll come good again. Just didn't get the bounce of the ball.

Crowmagnon · 04/07/2015 at 22:25

my opponent has named 3 mid emergencies with 2 non playing mids on the ground. which 2 emergency scores will he get? The 2 lowest?

    hedski · 04/07/2015 at 22:37

    Think it’s the two higher

      hedski · 05/07/2015 at 14:58

      My bad. Sry

    Donavan · 04/07/2015 at 22:39

    Yes, the lowest 2

      Derek · 04/07/2015 at 23:34

      2 lowest

iamme · 04/07/2015 at 23:04

How's everybody scoring this round? Ten of my top 13 have tonned up. I'm 1524/13 (not including my bottom 4) with Steven, Goddard, Zorko, Clancee and Fyfe as My Captain….. Reckon this will be a massive scoring round for most of us…one guy in my league got 1934 with Beams & Fyfe still to play.

    evryother · 04/07/2015 at 23:30

    yeah but he wont get both those 2 scores added to his total. the 2 lowest will drop out.

      iamme · 04/07/2015 at 23:34

      No that with his bottom 4 removed!

    Oliver · 05/07/2015 at 10:33

    I think there could be some monster scores this round, I’m sitting on 1930 with 15 played including captain. Should hit around 2250-2300. Best of luck with your scoring this round.

Rooboy · 04/07/2015 at 23:18

Probably already been debated to death but this decision by SC hierachy was wrong i.m.o,

It rewards mediocrity by taking the bottom 3 or 4 scores out and reducing each game to a lottery of who has the best 18 scorers. It unfairly penalises those who are closer to full premium over those that still have multiple playing rookies.

If a coach has planned well and not picked too many players from any one club and has good bench coverage, he/she should be rewarded for doing so.

Should have been doughnuts for all Adelaide and Geelong players with full 22 scoring i.m.o.

My rant for the day over!

R.I.P. Phil Walsh

    Derek · 04/07/2015 at 23:39

    I’m only going to manage 19 on field this week now that HGoddard not named.

    Will have to include Hamling and Dahlhaus 60’s

    Will get around 2000 but so will everyone else.

      Rooboy · 05/07/2015 at 11:27

      Yes, I'm aware of your situation Derek but having 8 players from 2 clubs was a risk you took which to this point has served you very well with a top 200 rank I believe, so well done!

      It was also a risk that I believe should not have been rewarded with this safety net approach by SC of best 18 scorers.
      In an extreme analogy It's kind of like someone choosing not to insure their house then running to A Current Affair and expecting public help after it has burned down.

      Anyway, it's done now so best of luck for the rest of the year Derek and I hope you take out the big prize.
      You're a great contributor on here and I always value your comments highly.

    Juzzy · 04/07/2015 at 23:40

    Surely you can't end a self indulgent rant with a "RIP …"
    Please go and find everyone dear to you tomorrow and let them know you love them just a bit more than supercoach.
    No offence intended, Juz.

      Rooboy · 05/07/2015 at 00:02

      No offence taken Juz but you miss my point.
      I feel the sorrow for this poor man's family as much as the next person.
      However taking all emotion out of it and looking purely at the decision made by SC, I believe that it was the wrong one.
      And no, it's not self indulgent on my part to take a reasoned and rational viewpoint of the situation without personal bias…. care to address any of my points?

        Juzzy · 05/07/2015 at 00:40

        Addressing ,
        I agree with you on the supercoach stufff. You were reasoned and rational.
        I get your point and wish you well.

splat goes whack · 04/07/2015 at 23:34

Dont worry- the mediocrity has contin ued. The AFL in their wise ways say its "fairere" that this rounds bronlow votes count, even though 2 teams didnt play…. faaaaarken ridiculous and laughable. SC, DT, AF and AFL make it up as they go… if youre gonna cancel out 2 teams, then even a disabled mute and blind would say just cancel the whole faarken round… geeeeees…. things with cash involved and still no common sense!!!

    Derek · 04/07/2015 at 23:43

    I have 8 players from Adelaide and Cats. My son’s team has none! Can’t compete with that. Oh well

Budstar · 05/07/2015 at 04:26

1894 – 15 players…Fyfe, Goddard and Beams to play. How's everyone else doing??

    Jambo · 05/07/2015 at 09:56

    1426 from 14 with the captain (Fyfe) yet to play as well as another 7 players.

      Budstar · 05/07/2015 at 10:09

      Going alright Jambo!! Don't forget only top 18 this week like the byes, but your in for a decent score mate!!

    Oliver · 05/07/2015 at 10:39

    I think there could be some monster scores this round, I’m sitting on 1930 with 15 played including captain. Have Goddard, fyfe, newnes, ibbotson and Zorko left who could possible all ton it up. Currently Cripps and Swan are my lowest scores, so could potential could crack 2300 if I’m lucky. Good luck with your scoring this round.

      Budstar · 05/07/2015 at 11:04

      Cheers mate!! Your going huge Oliver for sure, 2300+ easy. Definitely big scores this round. All the best

      Derek · 05/07/2015 at 11:05

      There will be some massive scores.

      Won’t be from me though. I could only field 19 players this week. So I’ll have to take hamling and Dahlhaus 60’s.

      2000 – 2050 for me

    @mysterycannon · 05/07/2015 at 11:51

    Great score Budstar… There'll be some massive scores this week.

    1650 with Goddard, Beams, Neale and Fyfe (C) to count. Hoping to push past 2200.
    Have JPK, Pendles and Goldy… may regret not giving them the VC or C.

    But you know what they say, Fyfe Is Life!

    Dean · 05/07/2015 at 13:01

    18 have played and im on 1928 I have the VC on Priddis and was thinking about taking his 116 but thought stuff it, I'll go with Fyfe as my Captain. So I have Fyfe, Beams to play but im also considering trading out Sloane for either Armitage, Mundy or Neale.

    Poloko48 · 05/07/2015 at 16:44

    1865 from 17 played, still Fyfe (c), Zorko & Pearce to play.
    Lowest scores I have are Hamling (61), Swan (78).
    If remaining scores go to plan projected wise I'll finish on 2119.

    Pales into insignificance though with what's happened this week, thoughts with Walsh's family and all the clubs who have been touched by him, particularly the Adelaide & Port Adelaide footy clubs.

Youngy · 05/07/2015 at 07:19

Take Hamling's 61? or go with Pearce?

    Tyler · 05/07/2015 at 08:12

    I'm taking Hamling's score

    @mysterycannon · 05/07/2015 at 11:47

    Do some quick calculations. If Hamling's score is going to be in your bottom 4, you get a free punt on Pearce.

    At the moment I have Hamling as my 19th player. Assuming B Goddard, Fyfe and Neale score more than 77 (my current 18th highest) then it doesn't matter if I use Hamling or Pearce cos neither counts.

    If one of those premos stinks it up… My 18th player becomes Hamling (61)… but if I risk Pearce and he does nothing, my 18th player becomes Dahlhaus (58)…. so in truth i'll only risk 3 points if my premos fail. If Pearce scores anything above 77, then that's what I gain.

    Of course if two premos fail then i've messed up, but can't see two of them dropping below 77.

      Dean · 05/07/2015 at 13:03

      Very wise thinking Mystery.

        lol · 05/07/2015 at 19:09

        Shame goddard got 30… hahahahah

          Youngy · 05/07/2015 at 19:28

          Please don't put salt on the wound

          @mysterycannon · 05/07/2015 at 20:21

          Yeah – Goddard had a shocker! Luckily it only cost me 3 points… but it's caused a few extra grey hairs as he's my "banker premo forward". Just a bad day at the office or big cause for concern? Anyone watch the game?

Tyler · 05/07/2015 at 07:51

What did everyone think of the little master? I reckon there's something wrong with his shoulder still but tell you what he was one of the best on the field anyway. Laid 3 tackles in the game, his first of the season. Finished with 31 touches (14 contested), 3 goals and 11 clearances. Don't know about the rest of the community but I'm liking it

    Donavan · 05/07/2015 at 08:48

    Agree, his not right yet, but still he was remarkably clean with his disposal, in a game had poor skills.

    He will be a must have in 3-4 weeks.

    I N Pieman · 05/07/2015 at 11:44

    Agree it was very encouraging signs. But he’s far from 100% fit. Had fat on him (not much). Worked his way into it. And then he was GARY. The opposition was rubbish. If he scores well again next week get him in. Will still have a huge be next week

Shake n bake · 05/07/2015 at 09:39

I have a full midfield that have already all played, I have kavanah as emg on bench if he scores higher say than a player that has already played will I get his score??

    Budstar · 05/07/2015 at 10:21

    Nah mate you only get emg score for a non playing player!!

Cliffy · 05/07/2015 at 11:29

Hi guys, so just so I'm executing this correctly, if I put the C on McKenzie from the Saints and have Fyfe as the E, I will get Goldy's VC score doubled and gets Fyfe's points to replace McKenzie if he's (Fyfe) in my top 18 scorers?

    @mysterycannon · 05/07/2015 at 11:40

    Yeah, exactly. You have no other midfield emergencies, right?

    I N Pieman · 05/07/2015 at 11:41

    Yes mate. That will donate job. I had the vc on Goldy. I put nic Nat on the line with the e & the c on read

      Cliffy · 05/07/2015 at 11:54

      No, no other Emergencies to play in Midfield besides the one I'm using for the loophole in Fyfe.

        Cliffy · 05/07/2015 at 11:59

        Cheers for that guys 🙂

I N Pieman · 05/07/2015 at 11:49

My little Man Caleb Daniel could hardly have been more impressive. Lauded as the match winner yesterday & with good reason. Hope that’s the last time he sees the snot vest. He looms as my avenue to GARY. Lonie down to Daniel & CRIPPS or sloane to Gaz

@mysterycannon · 05/07/2015 at 11:56

Anyone have any theories for or against the chances of Picken returning to a tagging role against the little master next week? Looking at his as an option, but he needs to be on-ball for it to be worthwhile choice.

Surely the dogs can't let GAJ run off the leash?

    I N Pieman · 05/07/2015 at 12:13

    No one will let GARY off the leash. Least of all the dogs. I won’t be grabbing Gaz this week. 120+ next week & he’s in. The trouble most people will have & me included is so few trades & will cost most people 2 trades to get him

      @mysterycannon · 05/07/2015 at 12:25

      I'm more concerned about buying Picken or not this week. If he tags – he's not worth it.

      I've a rough plan to get Ablett in a few weeks, but as you said, it involves more trades than I want to use :/

Cliffy · 05/07/2015 at 11:59

One more query I had, I was using Hamling as EMG loophole for Lever this week, and I'm going to take Hamling's points from last night.

But, I've noticed since I have 22 active players this week with 4 more luxury players to play today in Newnes, Ibbotson, Fyfe and Goddard, will Hamling's EMG score be discounted since it will fall out of the top 18 scores most likely if the 4 guys I've mentioned do better than his score of 61?

Sorry in advance if this all sounds cryptic.

    Derek · 05/07/2015 at 12:06

    Yes. Best 18 only

      Cliffy · 05/07/2015 at 12:23

      Cheers for that mate, just wanted to be sure.

Dean · 05/07/2015 at 12:54

Who to bring in out of Mundy, Armitage & Neale community?

    I N Pieman · 05/07/2015 at 13:22


      Dean · 05/07/2015 at 14:12

      Yeah im leading that way Pie as most have Neale so hoping it might be a little POD although wish I went Armitage now after seeing he's on 72 with 4 minutes to go in the second quarter so it looks as though Armitage will score 130+,

      Thanks for your reply mate, much appreciated.

        I N Pieman · 05/07/2015 at 14:34

        No worries Dean. Id say the dockers will beat up on the lions. All the freo mids could go large. Armitage is looking to a big score. Has had a great season

          Derek · 05/07/2015 at 14:42

          I’m hoping Fyfe doesn’t have a “rest” today.

            Dean · 05/07/2015 at 14:47

            You just never know with Loins, it wouldn't surprise me m8.

            Dean · 05/07/2015 at 16:19

            Fyfe is playing, gr8 to see the slippery Ross Lion didn't pull a shifty.

Mitch · 05/07/2015 at 13:36

Could someone please help me how I get goldys score
Vc on goldy, captain on fyfe
Selwood on my bench
Can’t just change the c around and want to make sure I get the points

    hedski · 05/07/2015 at 13:48

    Selwood on ground with cap fyfe on bench with emerg.
    Bang bang.

      Mitch · 05/07/2015 at 14:26

      I had Dumont as emergency too. Won’t I get his score as it’ll be lower

        Derek · 05/07/2015 at 14:40

        That’s a problem. You must have another non player on your ground you can put C on

          Mitch · 05/07/2015 at 14:53

          Shit. Only have beams to play and smith at d7 with e on him. Selwood was on field. Am I able to put it on Selwood after the saints bombers game?

nick · 05/07/2015 at 13:49

this whole round is a joke its bull shit fantasy and supercoach should do something about this crap I am missing 6 top scorers because crows geelong had anther bye know this is unfair crap I miss out on 5 big scoring players and I feel I am going get smashed know in my team I named goddard cap as I don't care about this round and the years over know the should change the rules or give u a extra like trades when shit like this happens sorry phil walsh died but so has my supercoaach team know and fantsy teams

    Derek · 05/07/2015 at 14:45

    I feel your pain man. I only got 19 on field. Way Gaddard going I’ll have to take Lampart’s score this week.

    Not end of the world. You will find things even themselves out. We’ll get a good break some other time or maybe we already have and just put it down to skill 😉

    Poloko48 · 05/07/2015 at 17:19

    Not the end of the world Nick, it's just a game at the end of the day. FWIW you could probably do with some full stops somewhere along the line….

hedski · 05/07/2015 at 15:03

Pretty happy I chose mckernan over gawn.

beating his score in third qtr.

What is up with goddard?

    Derek · 05/07/2015 at 16:17

    Goddard very poor effort. I need to take Lamberts score now. Didn’t see that coming

      hedski · 05/07/2015 at 16:34

      Yeah think im stuck with the buns or gibbos 50 odd now.

    Mike · 05/07/2015 at 22:30

    It's like the whole team were telling Watson to get stuffed on his 200th game.
    They've got to take a broom to the lot, players coach etc and start again.

Mitch · 05/07/2015 at 15:48

How do I get goldys score?

Had him vc, Fyfe c

All my team is played with smith d7 and e on him

Dumont, Selwood on bench with e on

Help pleaseeeee

    Mitch · 05/07/2015 at 15:53

    Can only put beams on bench and play Fyfe I think?? Shit

      Dean · 05/07/2015 at 16:17

      Shit m8, you need to have a player in your starting 22 that hasn't played, do u have someone in defence that hasn't played so u can switch by putting Smith on filed and whack the Captain on Smith. Thats the only way it can be achieved.
      You wouldn't want to risk taking out the guns like Beams or Fyfe just to get Goldy's double points coz you would think both Beams & Fyfe will score 100+ so it defeats the purpose.

      If it cant be done just stick fat with Fyfe like 90% of fantasy footy m8. I feel for ya though coz those 150+ scores are far and few between. .

        Mitch · 05/07/2015 at 16:29

        Thanks for the reply. No one I can take off for smith. Think I’ll stick fat with Fyfe. 1900 with 18 played without goldys extra 150 with Fyfe and beams to play

    judd0 · 05/07/2015 at 16:15

    Put selwood on put C on him and take Fyfe off put E on him.

      judd0 · 05/07/2015 at 16:18

      scratch that if Dumont has already played you will get his score over Fyfes.
      This is why you shouldn't have the E on 2 players my friend

        Mitch · 05/07/2015 at 16:35

        Yeah will remember from now on cheers

Tulendeena · 05/07/2015 at 15:53

Goddard 29 at FT………………….

    I N Pieman · 05/07/2015 at 15:59

    Will be very cheap in a few weeks. Have to worry about what he’s playing in. Didn’t give a yelp

    Youngy · 05/07/2015 at 17:07

    Hopefully he bounces back next week can't have scores like that from premos in my team.

    Tophawk · 05/07/2015 at 18:12

    Looks like Goddard has put the "cue in the rack" today. He was probably in a daze after wishing he was back at the Saints. Cant blame him really considering the shocking standard of footy the bombers are producing at the moment. Hopefully will bounce back next week.

Dean · 05/07/2015 at 17:03

Fyfe & Mundy looking disgraceful in first quarter, there just jogging around. Hope they turn it around FAST.

Youngy · 05/07/2015 at 19:29

Anyone out there have the C on Fyfe?

    Paul Walnuts · 05/07/2015 at 19:36

    YES<, 87 SC pts, a bit disappointed as he normally scores better than DT which was 103

    iamme · 05/07/2015 at 19:37

    Yep, still managed 2,055 for my top 18 though

    carlashirley90 · 05/07/2015 at 20:07

    Yep Fyfe as C but punched out 2123 so am feeling good this round

    top hawk · 05/07/2015 at 20:27

    Not me. Just 89 from Fyfey today.

    Put VC on Goldy. I will take that. VC on Pendles (184) would have been perfect, but am happy with Goldy's 149. (298)

tom · 05/07/2015 at 19:58

what would we say is a par score this week? scored 2002 and think i might be going down a few ranks with that

    carlashirley90 · 05/07/2015 at 20:06

    2050-2150 is par

    Well done to anyone who cracked 2200 huge score for top 18

    Simo · 05/07/2015 at 20:07

    Hi Tom there were many scores in my league around the 2000 – 2050….. I scored 2200 was happy with that but not sure where these scores sit in the scheme of a big scoring round!

Phil · 05/07/2015 at 20:00

How's my hard luck story in DT. Firstly amazingly I had no Adelaide or Geelong players except Tom Read. Donuts or Best 18 would have given me a massive advantage but they go with averages.
My VC Parker scores 112 with I decide to lock in and put Read on the field with McKernan EMG
I read in the rules now that Geelong/Adelaide players who haven't play yet get there break even. So I'm thinking that means I'll get roughly 18 from Read doubled and miss Parkers 112 doubled and McKernans 79. Ouch!

    @mysterycannon · 05/07/2015 at 20:33

    Only play supercoach so not sure… but when I saw the DT post, the way I read it – it was only for players named in the squad with no averages that would get their breakeven… notably Reilly from Adelaide. Read wasn't named in the 25 man squad so you should be fine.

    Mike · 05/07/2015 at 22:20

    DT is beyond shite this year. All the rookies are so highly priced (with a few sleepers in the draft the exception) that it's basically impossible to downgrade.
    I did the unthinkable and quit mid-season. Won't be back unless they seriously look into that game.

carlashirley90 · 05/07/2015 at 20:03

Hope we all reflect on this round as one to celebrate Walshes life and SuperCoach.
2123 only mistake on thy round was going Fyfe is Life Captain, Walsh would not want his family and football family to be sad but rather embrace our great game and cherish life and every moment.
We as a community have had our moments where we love or hate SuperCoach but isn't that why we always challenge ourselves and try again next year?

Went to Adelaide oval to pay my respects today R.I.P……..Footy will move on now

carlashirley90 · 05/07/2015 at 20:08

I have had Zorko all year and last 3 weeks he has been a beast

91,119,124. 3 round avg 111.3
93, 95, 91, 119, 124 after he bottomed out @ $406,300 and not many were looking at him now has a 5 round avg 104.4

    Glorin · 05/07/2015 at 20:53

    I spent the weekend deciding between him and Goddard for my last fwd spot. In the end saved the trade this week due to best 18 and am glad as I was leaning towards Goddard. Zorko will still be good value this week and looks a lot more appealing now!

    Dean · 05/07/2015 at 21:07

    The guy is really starting to put it together like his first season. I wish I picked him up when he bottomed out to $406k now it's too late.

    I got my eyes on Gunston for next week, his scores have been so consistent bar 1 game when he scored only 22 so he should drop to $420k this week, far too cheap to ignore for my F6 with scores such as: 70-101-100-91-135-96-98-91-113-86-22-108-86
    If you take his 22 out his Average hits 97

      Glorin · 05/07/2015 at 23:53

      His numbers look pretty good especially considering his set shots have been poor compared to last few years. If that improves, he is worth another 2 goals a game.

      Don't fit my plans. Looking for a DPP.

    Paul · 06/07/2015 at 12:05

    I got him in 3 weeks ago – pretty stoked with that decision so far!

iamme · 05/07/2015 at 20:09

anybody here play perfect 9…..I got 1,064 with 3 perfects & just missed out by 1 point on another as I selected Hanneberry over JPK & everybody would have picked Fyfe, so might be a shot at 500 bucks?

    Mike · 05/07/2015 at 22:25

    If you take all the money you'll spend on gambling over the next 30 years and buy shares with it – reinvesting the dividends, you'll probably end up rich. If you gamble on crap such as "perfect 9" then you wont. It's that simple.
    Enjoy the footy and fantasy football for free.

    hedski · 05/07/2015 at 23:00

    I forgot to put it on this week first time for year so not sure how woulda gone.
    Reckon youd be up there Iam.
    pretty sure its free like sc ?? Re above.

Ketut · 05/07/2015 at 20:11

Awesome trip to Bali, just back.
What time's the podcast up?
How'd Adelaide do today? There scores aren't on the SC sight for some reason. I've got $100 on them making the top 4.

    iamme · 05/07/2015 at 20:26

    Wow, have you got some catching up to do on both counts

    Dean · 05/07/2015 at 20:31

    Well m8 you missed a shit load of very bad news. There will NO longer be any more podcasts, you should listen to Jock's, Higgo's, Crouching & Wayno's final podcast which was last Sunday.

    Lastly regarding Adelaide im quite sure you would have heard by now that the Adelaide Crows coach Phil Waish was murdered by his son, he also attacked his mother but she thankfully was released from hospital.

    Unfortunately Australia was and still is in serious shock after Friday's tragic news.

      Derek · 05/07/2015 at 20:32

      I think he knew, he was going for an easy laugh.

        Dean · 05/07/2015 at 20:54

        I actually thought it sounded suss asking about two tragic incidents, but I thought got nothing to lose by answering.
        If he was after a cheap laugh, the prick should be disgusted with himself. Especially Re: Walshy.

          Ketut · 05/07/2015 at 22:01

          Oh Cmon Dean, you gotta laugh in the face of adversity. You'll feel a whole lot better if you do.

bomber fan · 05/07/2015 at 20:11

only 3 players from essendon scored more than 75 points, that's beyond pathetic…

Youngy · 05/07/2015 at 20:15

Scored 2210 this week, hoping to go up the ranks, not getting to ahead of myself, am aware that a lot of teams will have greaat scores!

    Dean · 05/07/2015 at 20:19

    Nice score m8, I was doing really well but had Fyfe as my Captain and only scored 2175

    carlashirley90 · 05/07/2015 at 20:22

    Top 1% for sure this round well done Youngy I would join you too but missed my Pendles VC chances and changed it to Goldstien then to Hodge lol then was like hmmm 119 and went with Fyfe as Captian 🙁

    2123 still middle of the pack score I would think

      Derek · 05/07/2015 at 20:28

      Same here Carla, Fyfe as C.

      I managed 2081. Was ok seeing I had Only 19 on the field. I even had to take Lambert’s score.

        Derek · 05/07/2015 at 20:53

        I have dropped to 301st overall. Losing touch

      Youngy · 05/07/2015 at 20:41

      Well done Carla, I still think you will be ahead of the pack with that score

      Dean · 05/07/2015 at 20:50

      Carla sounds like you were in my head coz i debated going from Pendles initially, then to Goldy, then thought id bring Armitage in but chose Mundy in stead who done ok thankfully but not as good as Armitage though as he smashed it.,

      I was so tempted to take my VC priddis score but thought stuff it and chose to go with Fyfe and my end score was 2175 bloody spewing I didn't go with my first choice in Pendles, if I did I would have scored 2365.

      Shoulda, Coulda, Woulda

        carlashirley90 · 06/07/2015 at 10:04

        Sorry Dean

Dean · 05/07/2015 at 20:17

I was travelling really well until Fyfe flopped it as my captain.
My best 18 scored 2175 which included 14 100+ & a 90 from Simpson. I was really hoping to increase my rank to at least the top 1500 or better but I cannot see me improving my rank by much with Fyfe as my Captain.

I think the winner this week will score between 2400 to 2500

How did you all score?

Tulendeena · 05/07/2015 at 20:25

Good score?

    Derek · 05/07/2015 at 20:29

    Very good

    Youngy · 05/07/2015 at 20:29

    I reckon your looking at around 1000 in the ranks

    top hawk · 05/07/2015 at 20:38

    Brilliant score. You will rocket up the rankings with that total this week. Good stuff.

      Tulendeena · 05/07/2015 at 20:58

      ended up at 396, best for the season ;D

        Youngy · 06/07/2015 at 08:58

        Great Stuff Tulendeena!, Where about's you ranked Overall now mate?

top hawk · 05/07/2015 at 20:30

Par about 2000 this week community?

    judd0 · 05/07/2015 at 20:31

    Bit over I reckon mate, 2050 would be a reasonable score looking at a few in my leagues.

      top hawk · 05/07/2015 at 20:33

      I ended up with 2048 this week. Let's call that Par. LOL


    TRIGGER HAPPY · 06/07/2015 at 21:52

    2196 fyfe as c but only had smith from crows/cats as traded selwood to JPK.

Derek · 05/07/2015 at 20:31

What price Gaz next week?

    Dean · 05/07/2015 at 20:38

    Id say he will drop between 690k to $650k but will plummet quite a bit more m8, you would have massive plumbs to bring him in so fast.

    He looked gr8 this week but im still scared s hitless about bringing him in this season, I might change my mind in a few weeks time though if he scores 120+ for 4 consecutive weeks.

    @mysterycannon · 05/07/2015 at 20:41

    By my calculations he's gonna be $686k with a breakeven of 201

    top hawk · 05/07/2015 at 20:53

    With Gazzas excellent score of 124 this week Vs his break even of 231, it makes his price drop slightly less than many players anticipated. The fact he ended 107 points below his breakeven for the 3 rounds, it obviously means 35 points below par per round. (for his first 3 games played)

    Therefore, if his average at the start of the season was around 120 SC points per game, (At his price of $734 K) he has delivered 3 consecutive average scores of 85.

    The fact he was priced so highly at the outset, I reckon he will drop and average of $30-$35 K per each of the 3 rounds playes.

    His price will drop about $100K at around $630K.

    Still pricey, given I am not convinced about his shoulder.


    top hawk · 05/07/2015 at 20:57

    I was wrong. Only dropped 45 K. Seems Gazzas status in the game has helped him here, or I am shocking at maths.


@mysterycannon · 05/07/2015 at 20:34

For all those giving out about the decision to make this a bye round… they couldn't do much.

Can't give projections cos it's a regulated competition and they're made up numbers.
Can't give averages cos although more logically based, still made up numbers for this week.
They could have given zeros for all ADL/GEE players… but that splits the pack massively for those with/without those players, and would I believe been too unfair across the board.

Least divisive choice was to go with the bye strategy.

With all that's gone on this weekend, if your biggest grievance is your Supercoach team – then life is treating you ok. It's frustrating, but I reckon they made the best of a bad situation.

    judd0 · 05/07/2015 at 20:47

    Well put mate.

    Dean · 05/07/2015 at 23:49

    Couldn't have put it better myself.

    Timmmy · 06/07/2015 at 10:58

    Agreed. I won by 1 point in my league. But had 4 premos on the bench. Had it been played as normal I would have been smashed. At least having it as a bye round gave me a decent chance.

@mysterycannon · 05/07/2015 at 20:46

Anyone watch the bombers game?

Goddard obviously didn't see it much. Was he buried in forward pocket or just generally not arsed getting the pill.
Concerned holding any premo forward that can score as low as 30 points in a full game…

    judd0 · 05/07/2015 at 20:58

    Gotta hold Goddard mate.
    In saying that I did watch it.
    Usually when the dons are under the pump he gets down back and gets a few clearances and even takes the kick outs at times.
    However he did nothing of the sort. The saints genuinely smashed them.
    See how he goes for at least 2 more weeks. I feel your pain, I'm probably rage trading Watson this week.

      @mysterycannon · 05/07/2015 at 21:29

      Yeah, i'll hold him… just wondering what was up with him. If it's likely to continue, i'll have to loophole him with Steele… now that wasn't in the strategy guide at the start of the season! 😕

      He has averaged >100 forever, i'll stick with him…

      Thanks for the info judd0

        judd0 · 06/07/2015 at 10:44

        Yer I watched the game, but I am an Essendon man so you can imagine my rage, my usual analysis of players went out the window sorry mate.
        I am genuinely concerned over him though. Today it felt like the players had given up for the year. I really hope this is not the case.

    CoachDamo · 06/07/2015 at 11:52

    You'd have to hold him – he just had a shocker and didn't get near it. I had been planning to bring him in this week but changed to McKernan at the last minute – might see how he goes in the next fortnight before I trade him in.

@mysterycannon · 05/07/2015 at 21:00

Moved to 987 overall. Aim for the year was top 1000 so happy to have at least made it there 🙂

I'm torturing myself but i've looked at the other rankings.

Had VC on Parker. If had Pendles instead of Fyfe, i'd be up to 680.
Proves how succeeding/failing at this game is all about the collection of small decisions…

Hopefully I make the right call next week.

    Dean · 05/07/2015 at 21:18

    Well done m8, I was hoping to make the top 1000 also this round, im surprised i actually gained 900 ranks and moved from 2444 to 1541 so I'm stocked.

      @mysterycannon · 05/07/2015 at 21:24

      I'll meet you at the top Dean 🙂 Good luck for next week mate

        Dean · 05/07/2015 at 23:47

        lets hope so buddy… Stay safe

Rob · 05/07/2015 at 21:32

With 7 Trades left do I get rid of Roughy or not.

He is out for 2 weeks Minimum

    Mike · 05/07/2015 at 22:03

    If you have bench cover then hell no.

      Rob · 05/07/2015 at 22:13

      bench is steele and mclean ???

        KJU FC · 05/07/2015 at 22:24

        mclean has done most likely done an AC joint mate and will be out for a while if so.

    CoachDamo · 06/07/2015 at 11:53

    Hold him – you want those trades up your sleeve come Finals time. Steele will score 60-80 while Roughy is out and then you can re-assess in a few weeks.

Swans2012 · 05/07/2015 at 21:35

World of pain here!

1868 sees me drop from 77 overall to 282!

Anything that could go wrong did! I’m not going to go on about the whole bye rohnd fact that I had 5 premos out (including smith who sort of is). it would have been bad anyway, but it certainly didn’t help.

Anyway a better week next week, it’s gotta be, and at least this means I can throw caution to the wind and chase hard….

    Mike · 05/07/2015 at 22:11

    Well my 2260 – everything that could go right did and I'm only just into the top 10,000.
    So look on the bright side. You're having a seriously good year,

    Derek · 05/07/2015 at 23:52

    Sorry to hear Swans.

    There are plenty who would gladly trade with you.

      Swans2012 · 06/07/2015 at 06:25

      Nah no complaints! Things have gone right for me a few weeks when they’ve gone bad for others. Just means I’ve got more pods in my team than I thought, which means big climbs, and unfortunately big falls…..
      Was due a down week, have climbed every week (near enough) from 12k overall in round 4 so gottabe happy!

        Derek · 06/07/2015 at 10:24

        The good weeks you can call that Skill. The poor weeks are clearly just down to bad luck

          Swans2012 · 06/07/2015 at 12:36

          Well put Derek! Lol

BigDropKick · 05/07/2015 at 21:39

Options for backs 393k…… Malceski?

    cozza · 05/07/2015 at 22:08

    Brodie Smith – $321k

    SCaddict · 05/07/2015 at 22:18

    T-Mac is plummeting like a lead balloon if you can hold out another fortnight. Good chance of being sub $400K or thereabouts by then.

    Mike · 05/07/2015 at 22:45

    Has anyone ever dropped in price as much as he has? And still will.
    He might find form, and be a good pick at some stage. Not yet though. Walking through the lounge room I heard this from the commentator "That's Malceski's second turnover from a kick in a row."
    Not a good sign.
    Looking for similar back myself. Might be worth waiting on as there doesn't seem anyone worth the gamble atm. Hamling's doing ok for now and not going down in value.

      BigDropKick · 05/07/2015 at 23:44

      Any other backs for 393k? Already got Brodie and I have got limited cash + trades. Will also add Malceski had 8 clangers ouch! He could of had a good score (under pressure as well) …. Showing some good signs….

    Derek · 06/07/2015 at 01:39


    Norms fc · 06/07/2015 at 06:24

    Gerry $389k ave 86 last 3

tom · 05/07/2015 at 22:14

i have 7 trades left with 210k in the warchest,

I need to upgrade Gawn once Martin comes back and Hamling once he hits about 280-300k.

if all goes well I will have 5 trades left but i also want to get Ablett for Selwood which would cost me 2 trades and leave me with 3 for injuries.

Is this too little? Do I not bother with Ablett or hold Gawn as my F6 and get in Ablett when he drops more in price?

    Juzzy · 05/07/2015 at 23:32

    I think you should take your time and relax Tom.
    I would hold Selwood for now. GAJ will come down in price.
    Gawn and Hamling are solid picks . They will continue to score and go up in price.
    Will the 3 guys you bring in justify the trades spent ??
    No trades might be a good option. Good Luck .

    Dean · 05/07/2015 at 23:45

    Hold Gawn as your F6 and also you have crucial ruck cover in case one of your Rucks get injured or suspended.

    I agree with holding Hamling, I will be thats for sure.

    As for GAJ granted he played well this week, but I wouldn't be rushing to get him in, id like to see him score 120+ at least 4 consecutive times before pulling the trigger on him. I personally cant see myself bringing him in this year unless he really tears it up.

sean · 05/07/2015 at 22:15

hamling to smith this week?

    Dean · 05/07/2015 at 23:36

    What ever you do dont trade out Hamling now, he has a break even of 3 and is forcast to increase another $27,000 next week.

    Secondly Hamling to Smith is basically a sideways trade, you want to be upgrading to elite premiums now mate, not hoping players like Smith find something, I totally understand he is very cheap for a defender that once was great the past 2 seasons, his two concussions are a big concern..

    If you can hold off and make more coin on hamling and then you may be able to afford a more consistent defender.

    Good luck mate.

BigDropKick · 05/07/2015 at 23:53

Malceksi thoughts go…..

    Derek · 06/07/2015 at 01:42

    D7 at best

    Swans2012 · 06/07/2015 at 09:57

    Is on holidays in the sunshine state, wouldnt be surprised if he is already living in a retirement village….
    But seriously he doesn’t seem supercoach relevant at this point…

Bailey · 06/07/2015 at 07:49

I thought it was top 18 scores this round why hasn’t my score changed?

    judd0 · 06/07/2015 at 10:45

    It was already calculated as your top 18 players as the round progressed.

Rick Grimes · 06/07/2015 at 07:49

What's the deal with McGovern? Should I unload asap?

    Kev · 06/07/2015 at 11:54

    Key defender so it depends on his role on the day. Also injury niggles. Eagles can't really afford to give him a week off at the moment

Mitch · 06/07/2015 at 10:45

Fuming at myself for forgetting to take the emergency off Dumont. Had goldy as vc and would of had to take beams or Fyfe off to get his score. Stuck fat with Fyfe and let not only me but I’m sure most of us down. Still cracked 2,172 so I can’t complain too much. Goldys score would of got me in the top 2,000 though
Some big scores this round though

Krazee-Eyez Killa · 06/07/2015 at 10:50

managed to get 2224 this round. had montagna on my bench as part of captain loophole and I think with the bye scoring rounds, emergencies are only needed if there aren’t 18 scoring players on the field, so I missed out on his 130+, which is annoying. rookie mistake.

made my way up to 771th overall. 1000 off top spot. imagine….

Give It A Go · 06/07/2015 at 11:36

Missing the boys Sunday podcast 🙁

wise old man · 06/07/2015 at 13:03

I know I'm thinking ahead here, but if the sub rule is taken away next year(which I think it will be), wouldn't that mean that players would score less points because the points would be shared around more

    @mysterycannon · 06/07/2015 at 17:59

    Instead of 42 full games worth, it'll be 44 full games worth… so very little difference.

    Average per player goes from 78.5 to 75.0, but it makes your rookies a lot more viable for cash generation so it'll allow you to score more points come season's end. I hope they do get rid of it and just have 4 interchange players.

derek · 06/07/2015 at 13:34

still same number of points to be allocated per game

Mr Cass · 07/07/2015 at 03:32


Jdogg · 16/07/2015 at 16:07

Only have 5 trades left but thinking of being aggressive and trading B.Smith for McDonald. I do have lever there as well though so worried about his JS (can’t afford trade with Levers $ value). Am I wasting a valuable trade at this point?
