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.

tweet1

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.

UPDATE

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.


THE NEWS

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”.

UPDATE

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.


THE PATCH UP

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.

tweet2

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!


TRADING PLACES

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

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

can you loophole with a non-player?

Joel

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

Donavan

Think I would go Steele, Boston as EMERG.

SuperCoachMan

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

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

Zak

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

Beams would be more consistent of those three.

Zak

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

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

Donavan

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

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

scrofl

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

sensational trades.

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

Jacko

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

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

Tiger

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

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

derek

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

Joel

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

HallOfFamer

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
Thanks

Mac

Boomer Harvey

Simon

Titch not starting sub

judd0

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

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

What do I do with Bennelllll??

judd0

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

Youngy

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

Mark

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

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

Thoughts?

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

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

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

Donavan

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

Swans2012

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

dognino

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

Harry

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

Mac

Harvey, Zorko, Riewoldt.

mcleal10

Goddard or lids

Donavan

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

Simon

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

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

People are saying 2-3 weeks for Roughy

Donavan

Thinking of going Franklin to Dahlhaus.

I have 10 trades remaining, and am full premo.

Thoughts please.

Glorin

No if you have cover. Bigger ceiling on Franklin.

tom

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

Nat Fyfe

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.

Thoughts?

Deadly

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

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

luke

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

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

I have no loophole available.

hey

thoughts on Marc Murphy?

Donavan

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

Definately worth consideration.

why

More consistent

mcleal10

gaff

Mitch

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

Mitch

Jpk too

Donavan

Priddis or Danger, but Id go Priddis

Youngy

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

tom

what should i do with docherty?

BundyBear

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

mcleal10

hold

Tophawk

Hold hold hold

Tommy

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

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

Jeff

Maynard was named this week

Mark

Thoughts on Jobe Watson, Travis Boak, Brent Harvey,

or any other under 510k

Tommy

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

Liam

JPK

Youngy

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

Could

@KingWinter7

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

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! http://gyazo.com/2b8b96272131f532adc4d3fe1d581348

@KingWinter7

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

Tyler

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

Youngy

I have faith in Griffen…

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

BundyBear

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

Youngy

Your gut is all you can trust in this game.

RollingTheDice

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

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

@KingWinter7

I have the same problem. I'm going Lever

hedski

I’m going hamling

Harry

Montagne or parker

Youngy

Probably Parker, but both good options

YellowNBlack

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

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

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

Shark Move or Insanity

Out – Maric & Lonie
In – Kreuzer & Zorko

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

Thanks.

Youngy

If it works…. Hats off to ya mate!

KJU FC

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

I'd put the VC on Priddis

judd0

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

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

ryan

who to trade for sloane?

parker
armitage
hannenberry
montagna

ryan

help someone quickly!!!

YellowNBlack

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

Donavan

Hanners or Armitage

Mitch

Kennedy or Hanners for rest of the year?

Donavan

Hanners

Youngy

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

BundyBear

Hanners

Youngy

IN: Ablett

Anyone else excited to see the God up and about?

matt

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

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

Mark

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

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

judd0

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

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

hedski

Parker vc. Goldy cap.

Donavan

Guessing you dont have Fyfe

Tyler

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

hedski

Bang on

Youngy

Goldy

Tophawk

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

Derek

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

Tophawk

Lets hope he becomes un affordable fast.

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

Cheers

Tyler

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

Gold Rush

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

Donavan

Suck it up GR

Tyler

haha

BundyBear

LOL

Derek

Brought in Parker this week and promoted him straight to VC

Tophawk

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

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

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

Youngy

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

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

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

Jambo

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

Youngy

Finally he is coming good!

Hope he is in ya team Tophawk

Tophawk

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

Youngy

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

BundyBear

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

Jambo

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

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

Jambo

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

Youngy

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

Jambo

Neither can I. It’s hilarious. Haha

matt

thinking of loop holing THE KRAK with lewis or selwood.
what a freaking mixed up supercoach year it has been
the supercoach gods must be crazy
there is only 1 person that can restore sanity (with the help of his trusty alter boys, crouching and peter)
padre JOCK we need your sunday mass, we need your wisdom, we need your love.
BUT MOST OF ALL WE NEED TO LAUGH

SCaddict

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

Derek

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

Youngy

His 9 tackles definitely helped

Swans2012

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

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

You got it. But why you keeping Sloane?

HopeIdowell

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

BundyBear

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

BundyBear

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

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….

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

HopeIdowell

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

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

coutinho

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

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

Whats wrong with JPK from the eagles ?

SCaddict

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

Tom

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

Dave2008

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 ???

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

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

Agreed. RIP.

Derek

All games should be called off this week.

carlashirley90

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
