The Check-In….In remembrance of Phil Walsh

Published by Jock on

Dear Community. These past few days are ones we never want to experience. We thought long and hard about not publishing a Check-In this week as a mark of respect to Phil Walsh, but we have taken our lead from the greater football community, and as they have mostly continued on in a reflective, sombre and muted state and honoured the memory of Phil Walsh – we will do the same.

The words have failed me, and a lot of us, over the past 72 hours. We are all shocked, we are all dismayed at this loss. Phil Walsh was a much loved football person with a great passion for our game, moreover the players and the people within the game. Football is about people. Life is about people. Just reading the tweets from the Adelaide players, and others who knew him well in the football world, it is clear that Phil Walsh had an unbelievable ability to motivate, teach and touch people with his positivity. On behalf of the Jock Reynolds website, we pass on our condolences and thoughts to the Walsh family and all those within the football community at Adelaide and Port Adelaide football clubs. Our thoughts are with you. Rest In Peace Phil Walsh.

Onto the Check-In.

Chicko - elite fantasy analystCommunity, please forgive me if this version of the Check-In is lighter than normal in its levity. Some of you may say, it’s always light in that department anyhow!

In Supercoach terms, this weekend has been significant for one reason. GARY ABLETT JUNIOR IS BACK!! In the first quarter and a half, I thought maybe, just maybe, he wasn’t the same player – he looked a little slower, he looked hurt and he looked like his beard was weighing him down and then……BANG! The Little Master went back to what we all know and love of him – his winning of the ball at the contest and going on with it! How is this for some numbers? The beautiful bald headed beast finished with 31 disposals, 18 kicks, 13 handballs, 14 contested possessions, 3 tackles and 3 goals at 81% disposal efficiency for 124 points. His price will continue to fall but if you, like me, had Sloane and waited to see how GAJ performed – then you may have found a suitable replacement in a week or two.

This weekend has also been notable for some massive scores from our premiums. You may recall, last week, that I questioned some of the output we had seen from our premiums. Not this week. Just check out this table!

As you can see, the monster scores have been dominated by large possessions numbers and a dominance of kicks to handballs, with a high percentage of contested possessions at decent disposal efficiency. Just look at Matty Boyd’s 94% DE – amazing stuff following Bob Murphy’s 100% DE last week.

Well done to all those that used the VC loophole to their advantage this week. I outsmarted myself (not hard to do) and went with Ward into Fyfe which did not pay off, so I kept the Captain on Fyfe and the Wolf has had a very rare bad game (27 disposals, mostly kicks and contested  but at 33% DE). However, I know many went with either Pendles, Goldy or JPK and have been very handsomely rewarded – well done!

So what is this week’s dilemma?

To trade, or not to trade in GAJ, that is the question!?

I know many teams are at full premium. I also know many people were deliberating on whether to chop Griffen – he was also back to his best this week, pumping out a very nice 119 against the Tigers. Owners were duly rewarded for their patience. If you think Griffen will still be up and down, he might be a good candidate to be upgraded to GAJ.

For me, I am looking at Jobe Watson as that potential candidate – he is a champion player, an outstanding Captain, but he is either playing hurt, or has the weight of WADA on his mind, or both.

So what am I thinking about this week?

I think I will wait a week or two, to see Gary Ablett Junior string a couple of games together, and then look to trade him in once his price has bottomed out (or close to).

What are you thinking about community?

Over to you community, the poll this week is, what will you do?

alex

Chicko do u reckon having a full premo side with on mid field spot waiting on gaj is alright

Chicko

Hey Alex, I actually do think that is alright mate. There are still a few sides running Oxley and Saad in defence onfield with full premo mids. As long as you bring Gazz in the next 2 or 3 weeks, then I think you are fine. Having said that, it does depend as to who you have on field at M8.

Swans2012

I’ve been holding cripps at m8 for gaj, think he’ll become gray this week who will duly be shifted into the forward line to make space for the mighty bald headed one next week….

Tom

Gray still has a massive BE… be aware

Swans2012

124 hardly massive….

Mac

My midfield looks like Fyfe, Parker, Beams, JPK, Selwood, Treloar, Rockliff, Priddis. My thoughts on getting in Gaz are wait a couple of weeks for him to drop, and whichever mid out of Selwood and Rockliff isn't performing, will be the one I chop for Gaz. Originally, it was going to be Treloar to Gaz, that was the whole reason I brought him in, but, he is scoring extremely well. Thoughts?

scrofl

If Jelwood keeps up his crap scoring over the next few weeks, he'll definitely be the one to give the flick.

mcleal10

I insisted in holding Bennell last week but got sucked into bringing in Goddard for him. I'm one rookie off a premo, so should i be waiting for Boston to fatten or Hamling?

Jambo

Boston has a BE of 78. With Swallow and GAJ back, I'm unsure whether he will make this.

Rawkus11

Boston's BE is 49. He'll make it

Doc2Drej

Current team:

D: Shaw, Higgins, Newnes, Smith, Oxley, Colquhoun (Brown, Marchbank)

M: Fyfe, Pendlebury, Neale, Shiel, JPK, Parker, Selwood, Rockliff (Saad, Heeney, Lambert)

R: Goldstein, Maric (O’brien)

F: Martin, Dahl, Swan, Buddy, Titch, Mckernan (Krak, Steele)

12 trades, 47k.

Trade ideas? Was hoping to upgrade krakouer to a decent f6 and then have mckernan as forward and ruck cover

scrofl

Keeping McKernan as a F7/R3 is a smart idea. This round I would look at upgrading Oxley to a premo. You'll be able to get Hibberd in without having to downgrade anyone else to make up the coin.

judd0

Yer I agree with upgrading Oxley, however I think you need a Premo defender like Hodge or Houli maybe Picken.
Your DEF line is a bit weak compared to the rest of your side.
So burn 2 trades this week upgrade Oxley to one of the above and maybe downgrade Brown and swing Saad into defence and pick up a rookie mid.

mcleal10

Maybe Downgrade Saad and then upgrade Krak

Dean

Keep Krak for at least another 2 weeks what ever you do, he has a negative break even of -18 so he will reach around $350k in two weeks, personally I'll be keeping him as my F6/F7 which you could consider also. I understand you need cash from somewhere though.

Your defence is week, I would pis$ off Oxley and bring in Murphy or Picken as they will get a ton of the pill especially now that Morris is injured with a suspected broken jaw.
If you chose to do this, I would defiantly trade out Marchbank even though he's on the bubble but his breakeven is 31 so he wont make you more then a few grand at the most.

TRADE #1:- I would trade out Marchbank and bring in some defender who is DEF/MID DPP – So if you bring in Maynard this will give you $127,000 or alternative you could bring in the cheapest DEF/MID like Corey Adamson to make a little more cash, but your better off going with Maynard or Dick coz there more likely to play.
Then trade out Oxley and bring in Murphy, this will leave you with $39,000 – Or you could trade Oxley out and bring in Picken, this will leave you with $7,000

You then use Maynard or whoever your new defender is to bring SAAD back to your defence, this will complete your DEFENCE.
im saying this because I like most believe Saad is worthy as a keeper in defence. If you look at many of the top ranked players, many of them have Saad as there D5 or D6.
The defence this year is so inconsistent its a joke, in 2 weeks time it's highly likely that Tom McDonald who is currently the highest scoring defender on SC, he will drop below $400k – That's how volatile defence has been. He is currently $447,000 and has a break even of 163 and is projected to drop $40,000 this week alone.

I personally think Picken is a absolute GUN defender, and even when he is tagging he is scoring very well this year, in his last 9 games this is his score card: 143-140-119-98-89-110-104-95-120 that gives him a average of 113 in his last 9 games, he will finish as the #1 Defender this year mark my word.

If you do this your defence will be:- Shaw, Higgins, Newnes, Smith, Saad & Picken or Murphy. – By doing this, you can still use Krakouer in your Forward & midfield as back up via Lambert.

Your lucky you have a ton of trades left but the idea now is to bring in the best possible premiums in your side, sure you can go Oxley straight to Hibberd but with all the crap going down with the Essendon Footy club I wouldn't bring him in that's for sure…

Lastly because you have so many trades left, I don't think you need to worry about having extra ruck cover, so what I would strongly consider is wait until a couple of weeks and trade out McKernan and bring in Caleb Daniel, he looked awesome in his first game, scored 65 and only played the last half because he was the SUB, I bet both my plumbs that he wont start as the SUB next week.
Then get yourself the best forward you like and hope Selwood pulls his finger out so you can swap him to GAJ in 3 to 4 weeks providing GAJ scores 110+ in at least 4 consecutive games.

Don't worry about having ruck cover, that's the last thing you need to worry about when you have 12 trades left with only 9 rounds to go.

Your team looks bloody AWESOME considering you have so many trades left. Hope this helps.

randomcliche

Hey Dean and DD. Great write up sound logic. I’d add Hodge who I reckon will outscore all other defenders (Inc picken) for the rest of the year.

Dean

Agree Hodge is a gun especially in defence and true you cant go wrong picking Hodge due to his DDP and his price will drop to around $510,000 after this week.

I cannot see Hodge catching up to Picken Re: SC #1 Defender on points because he has only played 10 games compared too Pickens 12 games, however it wouldn't surprise me to see Hodge average slightly higher then Picken.

So in saying that your probably better off going Hodge especially because of his DPP which could be very handy at some point.

Fromberger

Hey Community, Doc2Drej
Brown > Maynard, Oxley > Hodge gives you two extra DPP to swing between Midfield & Backline with Saad then able to start on ground instead of Colguhoun

I must also reiterate kind words for Phil Walsh, a mans man and sadly missed, we need more men like him to teach our kids the right way to go about footy and life (as well as us parents). I'm a blues supporter but found him inspiring. RIP. Always remember to hug you wife and kids and tell them you love em!

I N Pieman

Nice one Chicko. First half watching Gaz I was thinking the same thing. Is he still Gaz? An hour later I was looking at how to get him in asap! If need league wins then I’d suggest don’t wait around for Gaz

derek

part of me was hoping for a 60 so his price would drop, but then everyone would get him, so I'm glad he did ok.

I have had Sammy Mitchell warming his place all season, it might be time to get him.

Skindog

How did that go for ya Pieman;)?? you owe me $20, don't leave the country,,,,,,,,

Chicko

Cheers INP, like a true bald eagle, he lifted when the chips were down!

Dean

The FREAK played bloody awesome but there is no way in the world I would bring him in so soon. Secondly to bring him in this week is beyond absurd as he will drop in price. Not to mention id like to see him pumping 120+ scores in minimum 4 consecutive games before jumping on him.

There's obviously no doubting GAJ ability the guy is the best player in AFL history in my opinion. My only concern is the shoulder injury, it wouldn't surprise me at all if he had to be rested a few times this season and that's providing nothing bad happens with his shoulder,
CAUTION He will be managed very carefully, the slightest niggle and they wont risk him this season thats for sure.

r2d2

Nice words chicko … Tragic passing of p Walsh was very sad , liked way the whole Comp showed there respects (aside from Port and Syd, who no doubt will this week ) , and uniting together ,, we have a great game in this country that shows no matter who we aligned too we can become one too respect and support in these horrible times

scrofl

Finished off my team this week by bringing in Murphy for Brown, and Armitage for Cripps. It was a tossup between Heppell and Armitage, but I think Armo will be more consistent.

judd0

I'm tossing up between the same trade this week. Still haven't made my mind up but I think I will go with Armitage as well.
If Essendon weren't so bloody poor on the weekend I might of went the other way.

Jonesracing82

Rocky has confirmed on Twitter he's back this week, get him this week & GAJ in 2-3?

Tyler

Hahaha I don't think anyone wants to go near rockliff (or sloane) anymore

r2d2

Just one sc question …. Surely this the week too trade our cripps before cash starts leaking ? But want too wait on gaz , do I trade cripps too a jpk this week and hold on gaz for 2 more ,, and maybe use griff too get too gaz ??? Current mid-fyfe Pendles Parker danger wines Lewis griff cripps (Krak Boston Mckenzie )

Swans2012

Works for me, Im chopping Cripps this week for a gray/rocky type

northernsoul74

Cripps may be a chance to miss this week.

Youngster

I'm in the same boat r2d2 but can't afford the loss of potential points by holding Cripps even one more week. I can bring GAJ in now but wary of what could go wrong. I'm considering passing on GAJ altogether and instead picking up Hannebery and using any cash saved to upgrade a rookie defender.

Luke

the bont up to robbie gray? or wait a few weeks in maybe look to trade the bont out for bartel or goddard? if i bring in gray this week not sure if i will have enough cash for ablett in a few weeks, 200K salary if i dont trade in gray this week, only 100K if i do

Swans2012

Similar problems, just gotta decide who is more important to you and whether you can justify extra trade (s) to get gary if you get gray. I’m not sure whether Gary is a must this year but I am expecting him to tear a few games apart….

Dean

Gray a MUST in forward line. Had him since day one.

HallOfFamer

Anyone else considering malceski? Getting plenty of the ball just needs to pick up the efficiency to pull a big score

Pinidu.C

If I can afford ANY midfielder expect ABLETT and I already have Fyfe, Danger, Pendles, JPK, Jelwood, Lewis and Griffen, WHO should I get?

Tom

Parker

The Man Next Door

Beams

BKW

Yep beams, Parker or Hannebury – I’m not touching Rocky, too much of an injury risk

Dean

Beams then Priddis either one, forget about the hype on Rocky. Wait until next year for Rocky.

Pinidu.C

SuperCoach Poll:
Priddis or Hannebery?
Please submit your vote and any comments below.

Mac

Priddis – POD

Swans2012

Hannebery, gun.

Tyler

Priddis

Dean

Priddis by far. I like Hannebery but Sydney also have Parker & JPK in there midfield, Sydney's midfield is extremely strong.

Pinidu.C

Current team:

D: Shaw, Hodge, Hibbo, Newnes, Saad, Oxely (Hamling, Edwards)
M: Fyfe, Pendles, Danger, JPK, Jelwood, Lewis, Sloane, Griffen (Lambert, Boston, Neal.Bullen)
R: Goldy, Maric (Lucey)
F: Gray, Swan, Martin, Buddy, Titch, Bont (Dale, Steele)

9 trades and 90K in the bank. Thoughts and ideas?

Liam

Oxley to Simpson

judd0

Yer agree with Liam, also consider Houli or Murphy

BKW

Yep this – although you’ll need to work out a plan for Maric (trade him or trade in a ruck/fwd such as McKernan) or eat a donut this week

Dean

Pis$ off Sloane first and foremost and if you want a elite premium in Defence bring in Picken or Murphy before anyone else in defence.

Mac

Is it necessary to get Ablett this week? Also who are some good rookies this week? I see Maynard from the Pies did alright and Caleb Daniel should be starting every week from now on. Many will jump on the man of Steele this week if they don't already have him. Any other options?

Luke

Josh Glenn tore it up in the neafl so keep an eye on him when the teams are announced

Chicko

I bloody hope so Luke, I went early on him and have had him on the pine ever since!

Jambo

Maynard played because Goldsack missed. I don't think he will play when Goldsack returns.

Tom

Can I please have some feedback on my team? 10 trades and 130k in the bank.

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

Was thinking of going Dumont to Maynard and Pearce to Daniel via Goddard DPP. Then the week after going Lonie to Zorko and maybe Selwood to Gaz

Swans2012

Make that 126

Swans2012

Ignore that it was meant to be up there somewhere! Dam phone

Mac

Is it worth trading McLean as he has done his shoulder?

jim

Is it time to trade Alex Pearce and Dumont?

Youngy

to who, there isn't much cattle out their when it comes to rookies

BKW

I’m trading up Pearce this week

Luke

I went dumont to Steele, Dumont is projected to drop to around 180 K this week

Give It A Go

Whats the go with Josh Glen and D Mckenzi?e

Rob

Hey community unsure of what to do this week.

My team is the following

BACK: Shaw, simpson, newnes, Hibbered, Murphy,Beasley ( Pearce and hamling)
Mid: Fyfe, selwood, Brandon Ellis, Pendels, Kennedy, Shiel, Cripps, Priddis( Lambert, Dumont, Blakely)
Ruck: Blicavs, Nicnat( read)
FWD: Roughy, Martin, Bont, Gray, Franklin,Dahlhausl( Mclean and Steel)

I have roughy which is a worry because he is out for 2 weeks Minimum.

I also have a rookie starting in the backline which is a concern.

Another worry is that I only have 7 Trades left with 42K in the bank.

Would you recommend me going Pearce down to a Holman generating cash?

Any suggestions?

Pinidu.C

Sloane > Rocky
Oxely > Simpson
OR
Dale > Daniel
Sloane > Priddis
Leave Oxely

Barney

Maric suspended for 1

xav

I have Sloane and 490K to spend on a new premo here are my options
1. Straight swap to Lewis or sidey
2. Swing lambert forward trade to Zorko Goddard for my last forward spot ( leaning against this one as I don't have dusty or lids
3. Saad into midfield trade to bob murthy Houli and the like

judd0

If you feel like taking a risk bring in Rockliff.

nik

Hi community one question are we worried Ross Lyon will rest the Fremantle team come finals

derek

yes

Youngy

Ofcourse

BKW

Given they have lost only one game and will probably have nothing to play for in the final weeks this will happen – hopefully round 23 though!!

Cliffy

Hi community,

So I was going to sit tight and not make any trades (8 trades remaining), but with Maric suspended for 1 week, is it worth going Amon/McKenzie (i.e. a rookie not really getting games) – McKernan so I have Ruck cover for Maric this week, or to just eat the donut?

derek

I would trade him out. Thank him for his services. get someone else for the rest of the year.

judd0

Yer it is worth a look mate, especially if you still have a rookie in your FWD line on field.
As after this week you can play Mckernan at F6.

Swans2012

If your not worried about overall I’d eat the donut, If you are mckernan works for me, might save a trade later as well

Rockstar

What's Rocky's BE this week?

Skindog

Cripps to Rocky or Priddis or someone around there or hold for Gaz???

randomcliche

Rocky GAJ Priddis in that order imo

Youngy

I urge to all of you out their who are thinking of bringing in Rocky, Please wait a week

Krazee-Eyez Killa

It’s just so hard not to get him at 480k

Youngy

If he plays well, he isn't going to go up much

Skindog

Same,, price!!!! fairly straight swap,,,,, or going to Priddis and forget the two injured boys in Rocky and Gaz incase they get hurt again??

Swans2012

It’s risk vs reward, surely, surely it couldn’t happen to him again….

I may have said this last time I traded rocky in…. And last time I traded sloane in…. Ah hell I’m taking rocky

Dean

Well said Youngy, I couldn't agree more. I have the same feelings towards GAJ I wouldn't be getting him in until I see the great man score at least four consecutive 110+

Krazee-Eyez Killa

Alright ladies and gents, here’s my team. Let me know what you think.

H. Shaw, Newnes, Ibbo, Hodge, Simpson, B. Smith (Hamling, Pearce)

Fyfe, Pendles, Beams, Ward, JPK, Montagna, Cripps, Wallis (Mckenzie, Boston, Glenn)

Goldy, NicNat (McKernan)

Dusty, Gray, Swan, Floggard, Buddy, Titch (Steele, Cox)

Have 7 trades and around 45k. Am thinking I’m wanna bring in Rocky for Cripps this week which will almost be a straight swap, and then bring in Caleb Daniel for Boston and putting Steele in midfield which opens up that mid/fwd swing set.

That leaves me with 5 trades and 191k to then go Wallis to GAJ next week, with hopefully a bit of cash to spare and 4 trades in the bank.

Currently ranked 771 and about 1000 off the leader. I’ve got high hopes haha

Dean

that's the great thing with going for the 50k – The majority of those in the top 2000 all the way to the single ranked players, soon god knows where whey will end up by the end because they won't have enough trades left to cover there back side, so they will either be playing rounds with donuts or with rookies that score very little.

It's very smart that 3 of the top 4 ranked players still have Saad & Oxley in there defence alone. That alone say's allot.

Unfortunately this season the vast majority of teams don't vary much at all, we pretty much all have 90% of the same premiums, so it's those few who started off the season with the right rookies in there starting 22 made most of the difference in ranking.

Francis

Nick O'Brien's JS?

I N Pieman

Pretty good Id say. They need to sell some hope & bring in some youth. Scored twice as much as Goddard yesterday

neilsy

Thoughts on kruezer. Is he injury free? Last 2 games solid.Thinking of trading maric to kruezer then oxley to hodge? Thoughts gents.

Krazee-Eyez Killa

What’s he priced at? Have you had a look at Mckernan instead?

neilsy

380ish.

@mysterycannon

He's as injury free as Kruezer gets. Looked pretty good and I'd certainly say a better quality choice than McKernan. I'd rather step up to a Goldy / Martin / Blicavs player though. Any spare cash there?

(Guess Martin's no good for you anyway being out this week too)

jim

Trade Maric?

judd0

It's only 1 week, how many trades do you have and who's your other ruckman?

jim

Goldstein and 10 trades

judd0

Yer you have enough trades to move him on if you wish.
Are you full premium?

@mysterycannon

If you're playing for leagues you could take the hit depending on your situation. Playing for overall you need two playing rucks. But leaving 9 trades at this stage leaves you sitting pretty good. Trade him to a top ruck though… don't fart about!

Favalinko U Beauty

Good question, he is only out for one so could possibly hold and take a donut or the other options i am considering are Read to Brooksby costing 1 trade and about $40k for a gain of 50 points. Trading Tarrant to Mc Kernan costing 1 trade and $20k for a gain of 70 points but enjoying ruck cover also forward cover or trading Maric to Krueser , banking $90k and making Cripps into Ablett on a week or two.This is a bit of a high risk, high reward SHARK move. Trades are getting low this time of year so it depends on how many you have and what value you put on them. Decisions, decisions.

Swans2012

mckernan trade seems the most logical to me, might save another one in the future….

Jambo

Why waste a trade?

tom

I'm concerned about losing too much cash on Gaz. Is it worth waiting another week to get him?

judd0

Yer certainly won't hurt too much to wait. Even if he goes big he won't go up in price.
Will be good to have another look at him. I think I'll be getting him after next week.

Youngy

I'd be waiting a week even if he wasn't going to drop cash.

FootyFanatic

Is it too risky to trade in Dangerfield this round due to everything he and his team mates would be going through?

@mysterycannon

At top price, with a breakeven of 156… i'd say so. Especially considering all that's gone on.

Tyler

Who is the best pick up in defence and why?

Current defence looks like this: Tmac, Houli, Simpson, Newnes, Smith, Lever (Hamling, Pearce)

Krazee-Eyez Killa

Hodge or Shaw – the proof is in the pudding

judd0

Shaw has been the best most reliable DEF option this year.

Gary Ablett Jnr

Hey guys,

I’m back. Get me in if you wanna win.

Don’t do drugs,

Gary. Xoxo

Vince the quince

Hows the shoulder gaz?

Any chance you could send me karmichael's number?

dannyyboyy

thats a terrible idea vince. the one thing that everyone should take out of this saga is dont do drugs with karmichael hunt!

Tigertanic

This is really inappropriate dude, you can't just ask straight up about his injury.

throttlefinger

Very moving tribute, Chicko. Well said, my friend.

Chicko

Thanks Throtts, appreciate it mate.

Tophawk

Hi community,

I have a confession to make….. I traded out TBC tonight…..Its done…finally.

Yes, I needed an excuse to do so. Now I have…….

Stupid Maric "forced my hand!!!!" with his 1 week suspension for striking.

TBC out and Brooksby in.

Cost me an extra 40 K to get Brooksby this week but need ruck cover for the remaining rounds of the season.

hedski

Come on tophawk ya didn’t get brooksby..
mckernan???

Glorin

Downie is another rookie option. A solid 54 , 20k cheaper and will keep his spot.

Dean

Tophawk I'm petty sure this time on this post is wrong coz I'm sure your very switched on with everything on SC.

However its showing you posted this only 20 hours ago which would mean Round 14 is well and truly over, considering its 6:30pm Tuesday evening as I type this.

If you did make this trade post round 14 then click REVERSE CHANGES then you can start over.

Fyfe is Life

Hey Community

This is my current team:

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)

Unsure what to do this week I want to trade the Ox out because he has a high BE and I want to get Ablett in 2-3 weeks.

Thoughts?

Tyler

Well, you should trade out Oxley and swing hodge into the defence. Definitely do that. After that, you have the choice of who you want to bring in. Rockliff is probably your best option, but if you have enough $ in the bank you can bring in another premo like hanners. Then, I would wait with sloane for a few weeks until you want to bring in GAJ. If you don't have the kitty to do that you can trade down a player like hamling/lever/boston/amon to make the sufficient funds.

Jonno

Hi community,

I am confused. Anyone able to explain this to me? I’m sure it’s a simple thing but I’ve only just thought of tallying last weeks score out of curiosa and found that my score did not equal the total score I ended up with. Was hoping someone can shed some light.

When I tally the scores up myself I get the following scores ;

With Sloane as captain and no emergency taken I get 2031.

With Pendles captain double score and no emergency of griffen I get 2215.

And with Pendles double captain score WITH emergency of griffen, I get 2334.

None of these possibilities match with my SC end score of 2134?!

Am I missing anything?

hedski

2029.

judd0

Because of Geelong and Adelaide game being cancelled supercoach scores were only taken from the top 18 scoring players for the round.
So if you take out Hamlings, Oxleys and Saads scores out of your side then that should equal 2134

TTJ

Take out 3 lowest scores of Hamling 61 Oxley 62 Cripps 77 & you get get 2134

Mitch

Broke into the top 1% this week. Need to go for gold now!

My team is

Shaw newnes Kolodjashnij hodge murphy smith hamling Edwards

Fyfe pendles beams Selwood Parker jpk Shiel

Cripps Boston Mckenzie Dumont

Goldy Maric cox

Gray dmartin swan Goddard dahlhause Edwards lambert Steele

What to do with Maric? Have no ruck cover for him

And hold Cripps this week or off load?

Appreciate your assistance community!!

Tyler

How many trades and how much in the kitty

Mitch

Sorry forgot to write it in. 9 trades and 120k

Jambo

I would consider holding Cripps now but if you are looking to trade him, I would look at Jordan Lewis. He looks like he's turned a corner last week and he's cheap as chips at 445,000.

xav

What is Lewis' BE

Tyler

60

xav

Is time to jump on rance as a d2/3

Liam

He is very good value,but saying that he is very up and down as he is a key defender

General Soreness

Ripping tribute Chicko, you’re a Champ!

Chicko

Thanks General! Too kind mate!

Pauly Walnuts

Maric an upgrade to Goldy a given or does anyone have a better option ? I already have Martin ( susp ) & McKernan

Tyler

Yeah I think you should trade Maric out for goldy if you can. Hopefully goldy can last the rest of the season

Derek

Oh man that is tough. I was only thinking that yesterday, how many people have Martin & Maric as their rucks

cozza

Me! Sucks big time! Here's to hoping Brooksby can score 200 to cover them both this weekend 🙂

Jeff

G'day Community

Current team:

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

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

Ruc: Goldy, Nic Nat (Cox)

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

Unsure what to do this week I want to trade the Ox out because he has a high BE and I want to get Ablett in 2-3 weeks.

Any suggestions?

Jeff

I have 6 trades and 12k in the bank

derek

you are very short on cash. It has been a pity that lever hasn't played for over a month, he should have been ready to cash in by now. You are going to have to wait for Hamling and lever and boston to it their max price. Do the maths, what do you think their price can get to, say you downgrade to a $120k rookie. Then you know if you can afford Ablett. Will be close.

Hold for now, very few trades, you need to wait for them to increase in price first.

Henry

Should i get rid of ollie wines?

Kev

Keep him mate, gets plenty of the contested pill just can't hit the target. It'll turn for him

Rawkus11

Nic Nat or Blicavs?
And thoughts on Nick O'Brien's js, seeing as the bombers seem no hope to make finals?

Sam

What is everyone's thoughts on Zorko the Magnificent!, Can he keep this scoring up or will Rockliff's return hurt his output. Thoughts please beloved community!

derek

and hanley's return.

Sam

That's my fear, I have one spot left for a premo in fwd line and don't want to waste it if Zorko will start to fall away with 2 big names coming back in

Sam

I am tossing up between Lids and Zorko????
Or possibly waiting 1 more week and playing Steele on field this week….

derek

Goddard was very poor on the weekend. I had him in my team as a premium keeper (i had to take Lamberts score instead of his). On that last performance he has no place in my team. I don't have Delidio or Boomer, I was going to go Cloke to Delidio/Boomer this week, but I'd prefer to keep Travis than Goddard, at least he is playing in a team who are showing some fight.

Do you think Essendon and in particular Goddard will give a dam and show some effort, or has the ship completely sailed for the Essendon Football Club?

Kev

A bit of a knee jerk reaction imo, Derek. A terrible game from Goddard, but he wasn't alone. Dropped below 80 once (78) in his previous 9 encounters (5x 100+ scores).

patrick

you must leave goddard in, all players will have off games, note he played against his old side also, quality player with proven track record, i would keep at this stage of the journey

CJay

Hold Goddard! See what he has to say for himself on 360 tonight if you have access to fox.

wayno1313

For those interested he said that he let the score dictate his performance. Based on that I'd say hold

Glorin

Wow. What a disgraceful attitude. He stopped trying because they were loosing. What a flog. Trade him and pick up someone who actually wants to play the game!

Tophawk

Hi Derek.

Goddard had a poor game. So what? All players do.

As a SC coach or as a coach proper, you would surely not drop him? Or De-list him? Come on.

He will stay in my side. The guy is an all out champion.

He will prob get some more midfield time now that Jobe Watson will miss the rest of the season.

Might whack the VC on him this week.

Cheers

Rick Grimes

100% agree. He's too good to not bounce back. And more midfield time on the cards you'd think.

Kev

FINALLY got something out of JPK and Lewis, bloody hope they can keep it up. Same can't be said for Jobe, watched him v Saints on Sunday and I'm drawing the direct correlation between Jock shutting down the Flapping Tarp studios and Jobe looking like he went on an all week Maccas bender. Open your doors again Jock and give him a flogging!

With a b.e of 202 Gaz is still a few weeks off for me, Jobe gets the ass for Armitage.

jim

If im ranked in top 3%, should I go for overall still?

Tyler

Unless you're playing for cash in a league, may as well.

Wattsieesq

I'm ranked in the top 1,500. I'm still 1,100 points off the top spot. That means I need to out score them by about 130 a round to win it all. Tough ask.

derek

the team that is ranked First still has Oxley, Saad, McIntosh, Brown & McKenzie in his defence! (Shaw, Higgins & Gibbo are the others).

He also still has Krak, Anderson, Steele & Adamson in his midfield (one needs to play) plus The Bont at F6.

There maybe other teams who are at the front of the pack with similar teams. He may struggle in the run home

randomcliche

He may also have trades coming out his ars****e….but point taken. There are plenty of teams full premo and plenty of cheap upgrade targets atm, so wouldn’t write anyone off.

Wattsieesq

From my point of view, to outscore a person by 130 per week is very tough. Sure you may get them a few times, but to do it over 7 or 8 rounds will be tough. From what I have read, the guy who is coming first has burned a few trades (traded Fyfe out and then back in over the byes). I don't expect him to win though. The teams around him look far better. You can never say never, but it is hard to overhaul a lead like he has from people that are outside the top 1,000.

randomcliche

Mate I’m top 1% 1349 points off the lead. I’ve got outscore first by 150 points per round. I share over half an onfield team with most of top teams. I reckon I’m stuffed. I’m even sitting 8th in one league. I doubt that I can even win that on overall points! ..but if you’ve got enough PODs, cash and trades anything is possible…the supercoach gods do some nasty things…

Budstar

The ship has sailed out for you mate, I think!! League!!

Tophawk

Of course!!!!

Go hard or go home. No second chances mate.

I am in the top 4% and looking to win this thing too. And this is my first year in Super Coach.

Go for it! I am.

Cheers

Tyler

Ok so is it worth trading out A Pearce for Steele this week? I want to get steele in but Pearce hasn't hit his max price yet. I'm leaning towards getting him in

jim

I would trade Pearce, his will lose his spot in a couple of weeks and doesn't score well. Steele is scoring well and should maintain his spot in the side.

Tyler

Also who to play on-field out of Hamling and lever

patrick

hamling i think hes showing a lot more than lever

Jeff

Could you loophole them

iamme

Thinking of trading in Steel for Heeney & Houli for Oxley, then will wait a few weeks to trade out Cripps to get Ablett for Full Premium side

Currently ranked 951 with 11 trades left.

patrick

GOOD move as oxley has high be and steel on the bubble

Swans2012

nice trades! I reckon you’ve got a few trades up your sleeve as well compared to others!!

Wobblyoldpunt

Steele has another 70k to pickup

RatRacer

Any thoughts on Steele Sidebottom? He looks pretty good value to me for a player who has averaged over 100 the last 3 years. He has been back quite a few weeks now and still has time to build form to the pointy end of the season. And if he does…. does that take points away from Swan?

SideBySidebottom

He and Swan play different roles and won't compete for points. Steele's thumb isn't right yet, When he pushes up from the ground he uses the back of his hand rather than his palm and he's not sticking tackles he would normally nail.

Wattsieesq

Hi Community,

I need some advice on the last premo for my back line. I'm thinking of either bringing in Murphy, Rance or Houli. Which of the three do you think is best for points output for the rest of the year? I already have Hodge, Hibberd, Simpson, Shaw and Higgins.

Cheers

jim

Murphy has a very easy run home and is very efficient with his disposal. I would pick him. He is also a bit of a POD.

Wattsieesq

I was leaning towards Bob.

Dean

MacMillan.

derek

out of those three I would go Murphy. Much more consistent.

Wattsieesq

Cheers derek, I was leaning that way.

iamme

Houli average 100 nuff said

Gary

thoughts on shane edwards?

Dean

good price for a 97 average but can be inconsistent. If in need of a POD get him, if not get someone more consistent

Derek

His score last week was exaggerated because he kicked a vital goal

Son of Jock

Selwood to Armitage leaving me with 9 trades and a full premo team? (including bont)

Derek

Keep Selwood, trade the Bont

Wobblyoldpunt

Not sure where to go from here

Thoughts on current line up.

8 trades and only 1500 in the war chest

B: shaw. Houli. Hooker. Laird Gibson. Saad (Mckenzie Beasley )

M: Fyfe. Pendles. Hanneberry. Armitage. Priddis. Danger. Mundy. Shiel. ( Steele menadue lambert)

R: goldy. Nicnat. (Read)

F: Martin. Gray. Swan. Westhoff. Betts McLean (dale Sicily)

Do I go hard up back or forward? Shiel could be the trade off for Gaz with a Saad downgrade for the extra cash. Leaning to beams as a mid premo but his price is on the rise. Thoughts?

Wobblyoldpunt

Ranked 7665, top 3% but feeling like a lost cause in the overall 🙁

derek

can't see where you are going to get the cash from to get either Beams or Gaz.

You need to upgrade Saad, not downgrade him.

Pretty sure that McLean is gone for the year, he was looking like a nice cash cow.

Jonno

Hodgy or mitchell?

dennis

woooow jonno you no nothing, one plays forward and one plays defence. dum person

derek

pretty sure Hodge is DPP.

Wobblyoldpunt

Booya!

derek

If you had to, I would get Hodge, but only as a Defender. His teeth are very long!

Boof

Should I trade out Gibbo & The Bont?

If you count them as premiums then my team is set this week – I am tossing up with the idea though of trading Gibbo to Hodge this week and also a rookie, then next week with plenty of cash upgrading a DEF rookie & The Bont to 2 better performing players…thoughts please?

derek

Thoughts on going hogan F7 to mckernan F7 as I have maric. Then using the 70 k to upgrade Watson to a selwood? Or do I keep watson hoping hell hit form.

dannyyboyy

im in the same boat. i have tarrant, clark and salem and i need to bring in steele for a downgrade target. was gonna go oxley to houli or murphy this week but with the doughnut looming in the rucks i might bring in mckernan, as i havnt got my F6 set yet. mckernan will also provide good cover as my on field F6 while i free up enough cash to bring in deledio as my final forward, and slot mckernan into F7 and ruck cover. ill have to play oxley with his 124 BE. i didnt want to but it seems like i have to to avoid the donut. 10 trades left so i have enough to burn a trade to save a donut and not go against my plan to much. bringing in mckernan sounds like the logical thing to do from my point of view.
as for watson to selwood not sure about that. im not sold on selwood just yet. i always find if a trade seems iffy hold. keep watto until you have enough cash to upgrade to someone proven.
Hope this helps mate!

Shayne

trade Watson he's done his shoulder and is out for the rest of this season

judd0

Watson out for season

xav

Hi community love to here your thoughts on my problem
I have had the Bont since round one, now his output has decreased I am wondering if I should trade him in the next few weeks however I have 7 trades left and am 3 spots off full premo with 50k in the chest thoughts

Tyler

Start painting the fence and getting in cheap premos to fill your lines

Luke

dumont or da bont to steele?

Wattsieesq

Dumont

Stevo

Getting rid of Wallis this week b/e of 171. Do I:
1) Straight swap him with Rocky and save 130k OR
2) Go to a proven premo in Armitage/Priddis/Hannebery

Cripps will become Ablett next week

Tyler

A lot of people are going for rocky right now, and with good reason. Also the 130k can be used to upgrade a rookie to a good bench cover player maybe?

Stevo

True but I only have 5 more trades and need that money to upgrade Cripps

Tyler

Oh yeah definitely do #1 then

Stevo

Cheers

Tyler

Should I be using trades to get to full premo if I only have 5 trades

Stevo

How many more upgrades do you need, can you show the team?

Tyler

2 more, will need to do 3 more trades to get full premo

Derek

100% yes

judd0

I wouldn't use 3, can you use 1 to get 1 more premium?
If so do that, Leaving yourself with 2 trades is way to thin with this many rounds left.
Having 1 rookie on field isn't so bad especially if you have bench players that you can try to loophole o get the best score.

CoachDamo

No way – you'll find yourself with no trades in finals, and that's when you need them most. Be patient.

gibbs

My defence is- Hodge, Smith, Enright, Shaw, yeo

Who should I look at for my final defence spot? looking at LIam Picken or Murphy

Stevo

I got Murphy last week I think he is vital in the Bulldogs lineup if they want to make finals

Mac

10 trades left 130k in the bank. Not sure what trades to make?

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

Derek

I think McLean is gone for season.

Tyler

Trade Lonie/Mclean to mckernan and swing him into the ruck and put him on-field for , then keep him as f6/f7

Tophawk

Very good side IMO. There are two problems you currently have.

1- Mc Lean out for season.

2-Maric suspended for one week.

The fact that Mc Lean is out leaves you currently with 2 non playing forward emergencies. Although you have Lambert as a fwd swing option to cover him. Nonetheless, I would trade Mc Lean out in your midfield this week. Leave Lambert in your forward line which will give you cover there at the same time.Grab Nick O Brien from Essendon. Is looking very good and on is on the bubble this week. He should also have good job security now that Jobe Watson is out for the season. And pick up 100K..

Secondly, its time for Tom Read to go. Unless you are prepared to wear a donut around your neck this week. Grab Brooksby at
143 K. These two trades will fix your issues this week and whack another 70K in your warchest. (200K in total)

Cheers

nicholas

5 trades left with 19,200k in the bank. Need to fill that last defender slot but not sure how over the next few weeks.
need some help with leslie not playing and not many ways for me to gain cash
Shaw, tmac, hodge, taylor, simpson, hamling (lever, leslie)
fyfe, pendle, priddis, kennedy, parker, selwood, lewis, wines (boston, kavagnah, lambert)
goldy, nic nat ( reda)
martin, gray, swan, goddard, franklin, deledio ( steele, goddard)

CarlaShirly

Wait for Hamling to make more coin and hold trading for the next 3 weeks atleast for your last DEF spot.

Adam

10 trades left, full premo but looking at trading out the bont for lewis or another option, thaughts ??
Got 227k in the kitty

CarlaShirly

better to start looking at solid swing setsif you are lacking
examples are Hodge down back linked to Yeo or C.Pearce in Midfield or S.Edwards and Zorko in Midfield to link

Poloko48

Will Bennell be back this week?

wise old man
