    Thanks maaaate

Timmy · 16/07/2015 at 21:32

Love your work LekDog

The Joker · 16/07/2015 at 21:49

Nice Podcast Lekdog !!! thankyou !! where can we buy your single ??

    LEKD0G · 17/07/2015 at 16:05

    All copies were burnt but the original is floating around youtube

Jack · 16/07/2015 at 23:18

Can someone give me advice,

I have Dylan Shiel and 5 trades left with only 5k do I burn two and bring in an ultra premium ? Thanks

    Dylan · 17/07/2015 at 00:09

    Depends on your situation. If you are playing for league wins, hold. You’ll need trades for finals. Or, trade if you want a POD. If you’re in the bottom two and you’re not going to be playing finals then go for it, why the hell not? If you’re playing for overall ranking, it depends on how high the ultra premium will take you, given that it is probably only worth an extra 10-30 points a week (Shiel goes alright! I have him. I haven’t looked at teams yet though, is he playing? Surely, unless he is broken..) And then, it depends on whether you have a shot at the 50k, or you’re going for a PB rank.

    Short version: depends

      Dylan · 17/07/2015 at 00:12

      Yep just looked at injury list. You might as well trade up! See if you can find good value somewhere.

        Mac · 17/07/2015 at 07:37

        Look no further then Andrew Gaff

throttlefinger · 17/07/2015 at 01:15

Screw it all. 4 trades left. Out Hamling for Field (6 tackles…very encouraging) and Parker for Gaz.


    Jacko1998 · 17/07/2015 at 09:59

    dont trade parker for gaz

      throttlefinger · 17/07/2015 at 11:31

      Sorry Jacko. Gottsa be done, my man.

    Swans2012 · 17/07/2015 at 11:04

    Bugger it throts do whatever makes you happy….

      throttlefinger · 17/07/2015 at 11:30

      Thanks Swans2012. Sitting 13th in my two favorite leagues so I need some extra mo mo.

    @Seekersupacoach · 17/07/2015 at 13:05

    Contemplating similar action myself Throts. My goal in this, my SuperCoach year, was to get into top 10% overall for the year and get to full Premo. Currently in top 9% one position off full Premo and unlikely to play a part in league finals. So I might cull TMitchell or Parker for GAJ

      throttlefinger · 17/07/2015 at 18:10

      It’s a tough call my man. Could you go full premo with Rocky without trading out Parker or Titch? I contemplated that yet I’m in the same shitty spot as you. Best of luck, Seeker!

    Kraken · 17/07/2015 at 14:05

    Geez mate, I commend your courage, but wow.
    Parkers last 8 scores before this week –> 119, 148. 124, 59 (all swans scored horribly this week), 125, 130, 130, 110…

      LEKD0G · 17/07/2015 at 16:07

      Parker out screams Beams out my friend

        throttlefinger · 17/07/2015 at 18:04

        Unlikely Parker will average 110+. Gaz will. More significantly one is a SC beast where the other is a star. Apples/oranges with Beams/Sloane, my friend.

          judd0 · 20/07/2015 at 15:26

          Throttle my friend you are aware that you BEAT ME BY ONE BLOODY POINT THIS WEEK MATE.

    Skindog · 17/07/2015 at 17:46

    Same Throtts. out Armatige in Gaz,,, then one trade left and will be holding for a little bit,, put a fork in me, I'm done,,, Ride her till she buck's I say!!!!!!!!!!

Mac · 17/07/2015 at 07:24

Thoughts on my team. 8 trades left 130k in the bank,

Shaw, Hodge, Simpson, Gibson, Newnes, Murphy, Pearce, Hamling
Fyfe, Beams, Priddis, Trelaor, Selwood, JPK, Parker, Rockliff, Lambert, O'Brien, Steele
Goldstein, Maric, Read
Gray, Swan, Martin, Dahlhaus, Franklin, McKernan, Lonie, Goddard

Was thinking Pearce to Daniel via Goddard DPP then Selwood to Gaz.
Then the week after hopefully downgrade Hamling to a rookie then upgrade Lonie to a premo leaving me with 4 trades for injuries.


    Jack · 17/07/2015 at 12:30

    Just be careful with mckernan going up against goldstein this week then lobbe/ryder next week, will likely really hurt his output. I personally moved him on this week. Could be worth bringing in brendan goddard at his current price.

    LEKD0G · 17/07/2015 at 16:08

    better than my team

patrick · 17/07/2015 at 08:34

VERY VERY STRONG awesome team

    throttlefinger · 17/07/2015 at 11:31

    Agreed. That' a tight squad.

Tofor · 17/07/2015 at 09:07

Going Griffen to Rockcliff and Lonie to Celeb.
Good trades?
Leaves me 208k in the bank and 7 trades.
Need one more premo forward and Ablett

    Tofor · 17/07/2015 at 09:08

    Caleb Daniel that is.

      theshark · 17/07/2015 at 10:46

      whats your question?

        Wattsieesq · 17/07/2015 at 12:50

        Look for the question mark in his post, It'll probably tip you off : )

    SideBySidebottom · 17/07/2015 at 10:59

    Yes, good trades.

    Tofor · 17/07/2015 at 11:48

    Whether Griffen to Rocky is worth doing?
    Means I'll have to hold off for a week on Gaz who I'll bring in for Wallis or Cripps (I'll see which does better this week).
    Thinking Dalhaus or Bartel to round off my forward line in weeks to come.
    Reckon Caleb Daniel has good JS? I reckon he's been impressive in his first couple games.

    Dean · 17/07/2015 at 14:12

    Do NOT trade Griffen this week, he will score you 110+

LongJimmy · 17/07/2015 at 09:11

Two choices which is better is raise cash for Gaz

McKenzie -> Maynard DEF this week

then Boston -> Knight MID next week


Boston -> Glenn MID this week

then McKenzie to Field DEF next week

    LEKD0G · 17/07/2015 at 16:09

    I'm not a Glenn fan

      LongJimmy · 17/07/2015 at 19:00

      Thanks Lekdog

Don · 17/07/2015 at 09:17

Is there a risk hodge might get rested in the coming weeks and also is there a risk of having beams and rocky in the one team?

    SideBySidebottom · 17/07/2015 at 11:01

    Beams and Rocky in the same team is not a risk.

    Derek · 17/07/2015 at 12:24

    Hodge has had his rest

PreviouslyOnLost · 17/07/2015 at 09:17

onya lekdog.

CEY to GAZ for me this week. Got in Rocky last week, if it wasn't for a selwood chicken wing, and a sub risk boomer, I'd be happy with my team

Charlesy · 17/07/2015 at 09:19

Thanks Lek. Community, to get Gazza in I need to do two trades. Out will go Selwood and Boston. In with Gaz is my dilemma. Thinking maynard but already have dpp there with Mc Kenzie. Can anyone tell me anything about Riley Knight please? I’m in top 5,000 but only aiming for league flags now. This leaves me with 5 trades but I’m not confident in the downgrade option. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Glorin · 17/07/2015 at 09:22

Bringing in Ablett for Sloane this week, but was considering pulling the trigger early and bringing in bartel for selwood. Worth doing it this week or will I wait and do a downgrade instead.

    Derek · 17/07/2015 at 12:25

    Bartel $40k cheaper next week

Carter · 17/07/2015 at 09:50

Hey community, need some advice.

1- Trade down Pearce to Fields, use the cash to upgrade Cripps to Ablett. This leaves Wallis as M8.

2- Trade Cripps to Rocky, Wallis to Sidebottom. Leave Pearce there and use cash to upgrade Lever next week to finish team.

6 trades

Thanks in advance

    Charlesy · 17/07/2015 at 10:08

    Second option mate. Hopefully Pearce can give you 50 this week but rocky and bottom are great additions. Good luck

      Carter · 17/07/2015 at 10:15

      Cheers mate. I am leaning that way. I’d love Ablett, like everybody else, but it screws up my whole structure getting him. Another injury or if he’s put on ice at some stage and it’s season over for me as well. He also may churn out 150 every week and give me chills.

        @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 17/07/2015 at 11:35

        part of the fun in this game is taking chances. get him in. if he keeps pumping out 150's, the gamble paid off. if it fails, you can turn him into whoever you want with all that money.

      Hazey1977 · 17/07/2015 at 10:31

      Paerce Omiited isnt he?

        Carter · 17/07/2015 at 10:34

        Alex Pearce sorry

          Hazey1977 · 17/07/2015 at 11:22

          Ah excellent……I forgot about Clancee. A Pearce in will save me a trade and a 0 so I can shelf the plan to trade Malceski in this week and then grab a super premo defender next week!

barry · 17/07/2015 at 10:13

good work Lekdog,
tuff one this week, downgrade Saad to maynard for dpp or Daniel( have Steele Lambert and Krakk already)
cheers bud

    Swans2012 · 17/07/2015 at 11:06

    Maynard, dpp super valuable

      @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 17/07/2015 at 11:34

      getting him in for McKenzie. gives me the extra 80k or so I need for Gaz, and also keeps that swing set between DEF and MID

        barry · 17/07/2015 at 11:58

        good advice, need to lose either Wallis or Neale for Hodge this week and gaz next week, not sure which one?

          Carter · 17/07/2015 at 12:14

          Both are a chance of hitting their BE this week or close to it, so prices won’t change much next week…but hold Neale over Wallis if you have to choose, purely because he should score higher v Carlton.

        Derek · 17/07/2015 at 12:27

        Maynard is playing. I’m keeping McKenzie for loopholing

          Tofor · 17/07/2015 at 13:41

          Keeping McKenzie for the same reason. Loopholing him with Saad for backup going forward.
          Who would you cull out of Wallis, Griff and Cripps Derek? (for Gaz or Rocky)

            @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 17/07/2015 at 14:22

            i got rid of Wallis cause he's the only non premo mid I had left BE of around 120 I think. considering I got rid of him, he'll probably come out and get 140 this week

Hazey1977 · 17/07/2015 at 10:15

Hey Community,

Saad, Hamling and Pearce all omitted hurts me.

Was thinking of a POD and downgrading Saad to Malceski and upgrading to Cripps to Rocky?!?!?

Should I pull the trigger and hope Malceski finishes the season strong or just downgrade Hamling/Pearce to Goddard/Maynard and upgrade Saad next week?

    Swans2012 · 17/07/2015 at 11:07

    Sounds good to me, Malceski can only improve in the back side of the season imo

    Jambo · 17/07/2015 at 14:12

    Clancee, not Alex, was omitted.

    randomcliche · 17/07/2015 at 16:39

    But don’t worry alex will be out next week πŸ™‚

    MC · 17/07/2015 at 17:15

    Just a little thing on Saad and Hamling – they are both injured but should be back next week. Not sure if thats what you meant but sounds like you said they were dropped

Hazey1977 · 17/07/2015 at 10:30

Community POD Consideration #2 – Hanley over Rockliffe?

    theshark · 17/07/2015 at 10:48


      Swans2012 · 17/07/2015 at 11:48

      The rock by a mile….

Nicholas · 17/07/2015 at 10:48

Boston to caleb maynard or glenn and selwood to ablett leaves me with 3 trades… Thoughts? I still have 1 defender who isnt premo in defence

    Nicholas · 17/07/2015 at 10:57

    Turns out i cant afford ablett and am round about 40k off. Do i just go haneb or beams or danger or even montagna

    Nicholas · 17/07/2015 at 11:02

    Oh just came up with an idea could go rocky instead and have 100k leftover for my last defender and that would turn out nice. Only prob is if rocky gets another injury he alrdy burned me

      @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 17/07/2015 at 11:33

      who's your non premo defender?

      if I were you I'd look at gettng 2 premo's as oppose to 1 GAJ, and with one of those premo's being Rocky, that wouldn't be a terrible idea

        Nicholas · 17/07/2015 at 12:21

        My non premo is lever

      Swans2012 · 17/07/2015 at 11:49

      Yep the rocky plan is the best option imo

theshark · 17/07/2015 at 10:48


saad for picken
selwood for ablett.

will do one trade this week and the other trade next week

    LongJimmy · 17/07/2015 at 11:16

    I'd go selwood to GAJ….

    Swans2012 · 17/07/2015 at 11:50

    I’m saying it one last time, sellwood IS going to burn anyone who jumps off….will come home averaging 110 minimum….

      theshark · 17/07/2015 at 11:58

      but with 5 trades and the bank to do it? why would you turn down a bloke that will ave 130 for the rest of the year. cant trust your call with selwood considering he's only his 110 twice from 13 games. ablett 3 times from 4 and the other one he was subbed out… youd be stupid not to have him in your team

      with pickens low b/e ill be doing that trade this week with ablett next week to finish my team

        Swans2012 · 17/07/2015 at 22:38

        take a larger sample, this isn’t someone who has just come onto the scene, season averages since 2009, 110,117,111,117,118,120. Trade out if you like, I agree he’s been underperforming and causing me pain all season BUT he will come good…

          theshark · 18/07/2015 at 17:04

          pretty happy with this one

      Derek · 17/07/2015 at 12:39

      I agree. See my post below. Rest will do him good.

      Kraken · 17/07/2015 at 14:02

      Completely agree. IMO Selwood plays a lot better/scores a lot higher with Bartel in the team. Drop him at your own risk

    derek · 17/07/2015 at 12:51

    can you go Saad to Gaz?

LongJimmy · 17/07/2015 at 10:59

who has better job security Maynard or Knight?

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 17/07/2015 at 11:32

    Collingwood are running pretty deep at the moment. seems like quite a few blokes could come in at any time. Getting Maynard myself, but not sure how secure his spot will be. not too phased considering he's just a handy DPP player

      LongJimmy · 17/07/2015 at 11:34

      Worried about Goldsack taking his place

        LongJimmy · 17/07/2015 at 11:36

        I suppose Glenn is in the same boat as well….dodgy JS

          Tyler · 17/07/2015 at 18:33

          Hopefully because David Swallow is out for the season, Glenn can stay in the team

      Derek · 17/07/2015 at 12:38


Cliffy · 17/07/2015 at 11:03

Hey guys,

Pending the teams that come in, I’ve got a tricky situation as to who I’ll get out for GAJ this week, out of Cripps or Selwood it looks to be so far as the likely candidates to make way.

Selwood hasn’t been close at all in terms of his usual averages all this season despite myself keeping the faith in him, only putting up 2 scores over 100+ if I’m correct against the Suns and the Kangaroos.

Cripps has possibly hit the rookie wall and has been a great part of my team for most of the season,but with tough opposition in the Dockers, Hawks, Kangaroos and Magpies to come he might find the going tough I think personally, although at the same time he’s going to become an even bigger focal point for the Blues midfield with Gibbs being ruled out for the season.

So, who should be out first community?

I do have coverage for Selwood with Steele if I’m holding onto him this week obviously with Selwood out with suspension for 1 week.

    Cliffy · 17/07/2015 at 11:37

    I have an Option 2 in that I could go:

    Selwood – Sidebottom
    Cripps – Rockliff

    Food for thought guys?

    Cheers πŸ™‚

      Cliffy · 17/07/2015 at 12:18

      Which option looks the better go:

      2 Premos in for 2 trades in Sidebottom and Rocky, or 2 trades used to bring in GAJ?

        SideBySidebottom · 17/07/2015 at 12:33

        I wouldn't trade out Selwood if I were in your position. Cripps to Gaj sounds great.

    Derek · 17/07/2015 at 12:34

    Selwood is top 5 ultra proven Premium.

      Derek · 17/07/2015 at 12:36

      If he wasn’t already in my team, I would be getting him in next week. Cheap, rested, has Bartel and Kelly back in team and Stokes hopefully.

      Watch him lift for the run home.

      The week off could be a blessing

        Cliffy · 17/07/2015 at 12:44

        I am a man of patience, and you guys have a great point.

        I'm very certain he'll come back strong Selwood

        derek · 17/07/2015 at 12:55

        Duncan back this week as well. that will help Joel.

          Cliffy · 17/07/2015 at 13:20

          It kinda sounds like common sense holding Selwood too not only for his past history of SC, but also having the bench cover/loophole options for him this week.

            Cliffy · 17/07/2015 at 13:20

            Common sense in that Cripps is the likely candidate to make way for GAJ.

              TRIGGER HAPPY · 17/07/2015 at 13:52

              That’s the way I’m going

    Dean · 17/07/2015 at 19:23

    I totally agree that Cripps has fattened up nicely and is due to go out of him & Selwood.

    Granted Selwood has been a ultra Premium in the past year after year and im certain he will be in the future, However he is far from being a ultra premium this season and will remain very inconsistent this year at the very least because Selwood is a perfectionist and he isn't used to his team preforming this bad since he first started at Geelong, you can see him getting frustrated quite often this season.
    So regarding SC he he has been a total disaster this season with shocking scores of 69-110-154-84-83-104-89-90-79-122-89-74-103 his scored only 5 tons in his 13 games and only 2 of those were ton's were premium status, the remaining 3 just made the ton.
    His poor average of 93 and his scores show how serious he is struggling getting tagged this year, he will struggle to average 100 this year.

    If you don't have Selwood DO not get him in now just because he is cheap, his price has declined dramatically for a reason,
    I'm glad I never did brought him in.

    Good Luck all.

Tommymc · 17/07/2015 at 11:25

Community is it worth trading Franklin to daniel and then cripps to gaz. This will mean I can upgrade brodie grundy to nic nat next week and I will have 1 trade left. Steele would fill my last forward spot.

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 17/07/2015 at 11:39

    Buddy can go big. sure he can bust out the odd 80 score, but when he kicks bags, which he will, you'll be kicking yourself

    randomcliche · 17/07/2015 at 16:08

    With so few trades and such little premo cover I’d hold. Sorry!

Liam · 17/07/2015 at 11:28

Should i do:

Mckenzie to Maynard
Hamling to Malceski for bench cover.

I would only have 3 trades left but if anyone gets suspended/ injured i have cover on all lines (malceski and steele)

Thoughts community?

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 17/07/2015 at 11:38

    list the rest of your team

      Liam · 17/07/2015 at 11:44

      DEF: Shaw, Hodge, Simpson, Newnes, Higgins, Bsmith (Malceski, Pearce)
      MID: Pendles, Fyfe, JPK, Beams, Parker, Griffin, Selwood (Steele, Maynard, Amon)
      RUC: Maric, Nic Nat (Cox)
      FWD: Dusty, Swan, Gray, Goddard, Wingard, Zorko (Dale, Lambert)

    Nicolas · 17/07/2015 at 11:38

    Very risky, but it could pull off

    Derek · 17/07/2015 at 12:31

    Don’t waste trades for Bench cover. Silly idea

Kraken · 17/07/2015 at 11:35

On ya Lekdog.

The question that's killing me this week:

Brought the flog in @ 500k. What's worse, I UPGRADED Laird to Smith (worse trade of the year).
I want to get rid of him, but everyone keeps telling me to hold.
"He will come good Kraken"
"Wait until he comes good"

In my opinion, Lever > Smith.
Do I get rid of Smith?


    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 17/07/2015 at 11:42

    after copping 2 concussions you can forgive him for probably not having as much of a crack as usual. if he can average 90 odd for the rest of the year, given the DEF landscape, I reckon that's pretty good. we've seen how good he can be.

    got him as well, and will be holding.

      Kraken · 17/07/2015 at 13:44

      I think 90 odd is asking a lot! Since round 4 he has scored 60, 45, 75, 16, 67, 68 64, 69… 4 60's in a row and has been healthy. Can't see him averaging over 75 tbh

    Derek · 17/07/2015 at 12:30

    He is D7 at best. For his current price is reasonable value, but not premo

Big G · 17/07/2015 at 12:11

Glenn back from the dead – will he get the sub vest?

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 17/07/2015 at 14:36

    Really? Must have used some serious smelling salts. Can now get game 3 under his belt.

    LEKD0G · 17/07/2015 at 16:11

    Him or Cameron will get it I'd say

Tofor · 17/07/2015 at 12:26

Cripps Wallis and Griffen.
Which do I cull for Gaz? Just can't decide.

    Tofor · 17/07/2015 at 12:44

    Hah, or Rockcliff for that matter. Breaking my head over this. Wouldn't mind getting both in eventually. Both are injury risks for sure.
    Lonie – Daniel is locked to make 200k required for an upgrade.

    randomcliche · 17/07/2015 at 14:15

    Wallis or Cripps over Griffen every day imo. Both have had a super standout match, both have trailed off a bit both have BE over 100. Maybe teams have put a bit more work into Wallis now, esp that they are right in the money for finals and playing good footy. Although bit more experience in Wallis.

    Griffen keep lower BE. Higher ceiling.

Nicholas · 17/07/2015 at 12:35

Maynard glenn caleb. Which is the best rookie option

    derek · 17/07/2015 at 12:48

    caleb by a long way.

      I N Pieman · 17/07/2015 at 13:10

      Agree with Derek. Best JS by miles

    Tofor · 17/07/2015 at 13:39

    Def Caleb

    randomcliche · 17/07/2015 at 14:07

    I would not want to be playing any and think the swing sets are more important. It depends where you are upto on the full premo plus track

Doggie D · 17/07/2015 at 12:41

Griffen to Gazza is locked in.
Second step is to upgrade Oxley from D6 to one of the following:
Thoughts on who to go to?
My other consideration was upgrade Motlop from F6 but i think Oxley has to go first

    Hazey1977 · 17/07/2015 at 12:45

    Houli….but I like the look of Hurley too for a POD (not sure on ownership %)

      randomcliche · 17/07/2015 at 13:58

      Pod watch
      Hurley 2.5%
      Yeo 7.5%
      Birchall 3.5%

      All others houli 12 rance 14 mcdoanld 20 much higher

      But a I like points so went with the shoal

Antonio · 17/07/2015 at 12:51

Who should I play out of McKernan, Lonie or Daniels? Will be turning Lonie into Bartel next week.

    I N Pieman · 17/07/2015 at 13:11

    Id play Mckernan

    Kraken · 17/07/2015 at 14:01

    I like McKernan, but not this week – will get demolished by Goldy!

randomcliche · 17/07/2015 at 13:38

So I’m full premo and doing the Griffen to Gaz move and need some cash. Just wondering the communities thoughts on:

1. Pearce (likely to be dropped in a for night with son of so and that ross lyon special playing wafl this weekend) to C.Anderson vs

2. Hamling to Maynard.

Thanks community!

    randomcliche · 17/07/2015 at 13:45

    *Son of sos – Alex silvagni
    Ross Lyon special – Zac Dawson

    I don’t need either to play this week hopefully not ever touch wood. I’m super low on trades post these.

    derek · 17/07/2015 at 13:46

    If you are looking for good bench cover, then Maynard JS not good. Pies will get plenty back in next few weeks.

      randomcliche · 17/07/2015 at 13:49

      Thanks Derek.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 17/07/2015 at 13:55

    Hamling – Goddard?

      randomcliche · 17/07/2015 at 14:01

      Thanks for the option Trigger. Basically it comes down to in case of emergency who will be there with the most points
      Hamling, Goddard or Maynard. Your thoughts?

        randomcliche · 17/07/2015 at 14:05

        Note that post next weekend goddard would give me a def fwd swing rather than a def mid swing allowing double premo cover for the fwd line rather than the mids. (And 1 trade left!l)

          TRIGGER HAPPY · 17/07/2015 at 14:24

          If it gives u mid cover if u already have fwd then Maynard as gives u mid/Def cover. I took your advice and also created DPP. Went Dumont to Goddard via Mckenzie DPP. Cripps – abs.

          TRIGGER HAPPY · 17/07/2015 at 14:31

          1 trade! Boy u do need cover.

            randomcliche · 17/07/2015 at 16:14

            Lols. Yeah 1 trade post next week when krak goes to malceski. Then I’ll have malceski and Gawn as premo cover. I know some don’t like burning a trade for cover esp when only 2 left but it’s worth it imo. Malc will come good imo, prolly faster than Smith.

Brook · 17/07/2015 at 13:43

My ins for this week (last upgrade to full premo):

rocky/maynard or wines/fields? thoughts?

I am waiting on GAJ till R18-19 … i think he is a luxury for those at full premo (a bit risky for mine to be sideway trading before full premo … one injury or susp this week and u have steele and/or daniel on field … or worse still, amon, dumont or klamb!

    randomcliche · 17/07/2015 at 13:47

    Both solid, Rocky over Wines for mine.

Jambo · 17/07/2015 at 14:20

I’m strongly considering bringing in Andrew Swallow at Dylan Shiel’s expense. I have 3 trades left with $39,100 left. I’m playing for overall rank. Currently, I’m in the top 12%.

I quite like North’s run home. I think him and Goldstein will come home with a wet sail. Any thoughts??

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 17/07/2015 at 14:25


    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 17/07/2015 at 14:31

    you playing to win or just to see how high you can finish? I wouldn't touch Andrew Swallow, but that's just me

      Jambo · 17/07/2015 at 14:38

      The latter. I cannot win from here.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 17/07/2015 at 14:34

    Goldy may break all records tonight.

    randomcliche · 17/07/2015 at 16:17

    Sounds fine. I just cut him for Rocky though.

    cozza · 17/07/2015 at 16:42

    I've held Swallow all year (sigh). Been very disappointing so far, but has been better over the last few weeks. A chance to average 100 from here on. As a Swallow owner though, I would suggest you avoid the rollercoaster ride!

@KrazeeEyezK1lla · 17/07/2015 at 14:35

Anybody know what's happening with Hamling? Can we expect to see him play anytime soon?

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 17/07/2015 at 14:39

    Listed as “back” test. Guess he didn’t come up this week.

Jambo · 17/07/2015 at 14:40

Maybe… only to be outdone by Gaz.

nathan · 17/07/2015 at 14:51

So wasnt gonna take gaz this week

But have conceded that everyone needs to get him

So two trades need to be done to get in my side

So its either boston and gawn

Or boston and jacobs

Both using ddp

So the question is

Which if the two will be the better R2 from here?

    randomcliche · 17/07/2015 at 16:20

    Tough. Add up games against WC and Freo and take the one with less. New coach at adelaide is a risk. Gawn not proven like sauce.

@KrazeeEyezK1lla · 17/07/2015 at 14:55

Friends, I'm flipping.

I think I'm going to avoid getting The Golden Child. I'm having to sacrifice too much in order to get him, and I just have a feeling I'll regret it.

I have 5 trades left, with 191k in the bank. Ranked around 700th overall.

Thinking about holding onto Wallis this week and seeing if he can at least stay around the same price, or maybe increase, and then trade Brodie Smith this week up to a Houli or Tmac.

Then next week I will look at trading Wallis up to a Hannebery or Priddis if I can, leaving me with 2 trades left, and no GAJ. Even typing this out I'm fully doubting myself and considering not posting this haha what to do…..

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 17/07/2015 at 15:01

    The plan is also to bring in a non playing 102k DEF/MID to replace McKenzie in the mid's to cash generate.

    so I need to consider, are Hannebery and Tmac combined going to produce higher scores, more consistently, than GAJ and Brodie Smith.

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 17/07/2015 at 15:07

      What does your gut tell ya Kraz? Always back ya gut.

        @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 17/07/2015 at 15:13

        my gut says throwing the kichen sink at Gaz will make my team vulnerable overall, which I don't want. maybe NOT getting him will be the best POD of the year! ha

        that being said.. after this week, if there's a chance he'll drop to around 630k, I could actually look at getting him in the next few weeks in time for finals if I sit tight and stay away from the trade button

          derek · 17/07/2015 at 15:32

          there was over 10,000 people brought Gaz in last week and it looks like there will be 30k more this week. Might not be the big POD that people think.

    randomcliche · 17/07/2015 at 16:29

    See if you can get nick m as your d6 and ablett. Run smith as d7. Does that work in 3 trades for you?

      @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 17/07/2015 at 16:40

      I think that's a bit too risky tbh. I know Malceski can be a gun, but he just hasn't shown it this year.

dannyyboyy · 17/07/2015 at 15:03


And dont act embarrassed Lekdog cause you were probably waiting for someone to post this for all to see!!!

Is it worth brining in Gaz for Selwood and Daniel for Alex Pearce?

Then next week Hamling to a rookie and Lonie to Bartel which will make me full premo with 4 trades left?

    Tyler · 17/07/2015 at 18:40

    Sounds like a solid plan

Mac · 17/07/2015 at 15:38

How do I start?

McKernan, Daniel or Lonie

Liam · 17/07/2015 at 15:52

What's better
Smith to Tmac
Selwood to Hanners

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 17/07/2015 at 15:54


    Jarrad · 17/07/2015 at 16:22

    Wait a couple of weeks then decide

    Tyler · 17/07/2015 at 18:40

    Smith to Tmac

derek · 17/07/2015 at 15:58

over the next 2 weeks i'll be trading out: Hamling, Griffin, Cloke & Motlop and trading in: Hodge, Gaz, Bartel & Caleb.

However I need about $50k price change to make the trades. I was expecting Bartel to drop at least $30k and Hamling to increase $20k, and hope that Gaz didn't increase much and griffin doesn't decrease much. It is a fine line. Now Hamling stuffs it up.

    I N Pieman · 17/07/2015 at 16:08

    I think most were expecting Hamling back this week Derek. But not to be unfortunately. Defence bench cover is now looking really shaky

      derek · 17/07/2015 at 16:46

      I was just ranting. I might be better off getting rid of BSmith (was going to keep him at D7) instead of Hamling so I don't have to worry about the cash as much.

      still have 11 trades. With steele and Calab being good cash cows, there might still be an upgrade or two left after these trades.

      Cloke >> Hodge (via Lambert)
      BSmith >> Caleb (via HGodard) this week

      Griffin >> Gaz
      Motlop >> Bartel Next week.

        I N Pieman · 17/07/2015 at 17:44

        Cloke is poison. Get rid of him asap. 11 trades. That’s the most I’ve heard for a while

Hey Guys,

Got a dilemma and would appreciate some thoughts,

Team –
Def – Shaw, Newnes, Hodge, Gibson, Smith, Saad, Hamling and Adamson
Mid – Fyfe, Pendlebury, Dangerfield, Beams, Parker, Hannebery, Rockliff, Griffen, Boston, Kavanagh and Payne
Ruck- Goldy, Nic Nat
Forward – Buddy, Martin, Deledio, Goddard, Gray, Swan, Steele and Lambert

Option One
Boston – Daniel (Via Steele)
Griffen – Gazza
leaves me with 4 trades and 11k left

Option Two
Saad – Picken
Boston – Daniel (Via Steele)
leaves me with 4 trades and 59k left

So dilemma is Option One or Two and is 4 trades enough or should I hold this week?

Cheers Riley

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 17/07/2015 at 16:13

    Q. Do u think Saad & abs will outscore Griffen and picken? If so go two. This week u have 21 players. So best to fix your back line and upgrade Griff down the track imo

THEBEARD · 17/07/2015 at 16:11


Saad is he out for a week or longer?

Do I trade him out for Hooker or Malceski or do I hold him for a week and hope Beasley can cover?

    return of the v · 17/07/2015 at 16:44

    beasley is covering the neafl

      return of v · 17/07/2015 at 16:51

      my mistake he is back!

    Ethan · 17/07/2015 at 17:58

    might as well move him on now

cozza · 17/07/2015 at 16:39

Torn – need to get rid of Krakouer to get GAJ in, but if Krak is named I'm missing out on some good coin there with his -18 BE. Hoping GAJ stays the same value with his BE of 119. GAJ will complete me team – will be going Cripps to him for full premo. If Krak named to play on Sunday though, thinking I will hold onto trades this week (have 6 left) and get GAJ next week.

Or is this crazy and I should make the plunge and get the God in now??

    wise one · 17/07/2015 at 17:06

    If ablett scores another 150 like last week he will only go up about 15k

Barney · 17/07/2015 at 16:39

Thanks for the podcast Lekdog -well done . Great to hear Jock as well

return of the v · 17/07/2015 at 16:43

fellas i have a big question. 7 trades left. want ablett this week. midfield is fyfe, hanneberry, pendles, danger, JPK, wines, rockliff, selwood, with bennell on the bench as mid/fwd cover.

do i tradeout selwood or bennell this week? bennell is handier on the bench as he covers mid and fwd but a bit risky (his season could go up in smoke) or selwood who could start to fire up which means wines hits the bench?


    cozza · 17/07/2015 at 17:23

    Trade Bennell – Selwood likely to score more and you will have some great loophole options with that midfield!

      return of v · 17/07/2015 at 17:45

      good thinking, thanks mate!

Robert · 17/07/2015 at 16:56

      Robert · 17/07/2015 at 17:07

      I have around 460K for a player in the midfield ( or Forward line if i use DPP)

obviously need to cover for selwood and s.edwards bout how exactly do i do it with o'brien playing tonight and where should i be putting steele.. in the guts or forward

cheers for your help community

    Tyler · 17/07/2015 at 18:54

    In defence:
    Put Hamling on field for smith with the e on edwards, if edwards doesn't perform put smith on-field (If edwards gets under or around 50 put smith on)
    Put Mckenzie on field for selwood with e on o'brien, if o'brien doesn't do well put steele on-field (If o'brien gets under or around 60 put steele on)
    Do nothing
    Keep Shane Edwards on field with e on daniel, if daniel doesn't perform put lambert on-field (If daniel gets under or around 30 put lambert on)

    Also put steele in the mids

Shaw, Hodge, Simpson, Gibson, Newnes, Murphy, Pearce, Hamling
Fyfe, Beams, Priddis, Trelaor, Selwood, JPK, Parker, Rockliff, Lambert, O'Brien, Steele
Goldstein, Maric, Read
Gray, Swan, Martin, Dahlhaus, Franklin, McKernan, Lonie, Goddard

Was thinking Pearce to Daniel via Goddard DPP then Selwood to Gaz. Then next week Hamling to rookie and Lonie to Bartel.

Also, who do I start this round, McKernan, Lonie or Daniel?

Ruffles · 17/07/2015 at 17:28

Would people play Nathan Krakouer vs Crows in the showdown over Jack Steele vs GC?

    SCaddict · 17/07/2015 at 17:40

    I'd go with the Man of Steele. Always a risk of Krak copping the vest on Sunday arvo when you may be stuck for options.

Luke · 17/07/2015 at 17:28

Hamming out for Daniel or nah

    Luke · 17/07/2015 at 17:29

    Hamling *

      Babo · 17/07/2015 at 18:30

      Hamling is going still to make cash. Why use a trade. I'm holding Hamling for at least one more week (hoping he will play).

      I am in a similar situation where I've decided to drop Saad for McDonald. Smith is going next week unless he pulls his finger out against Port.

      In summary Keep Hamling unless you have a donut in Def.

    Tyler · 17/07/2015 at 18:56

    Good trade

luke · 17/07/2015 at 17:35

Need some advice:
Option 1: cripps to ablett, motlop to Daniel. Miss out on hodge and keep smith and get a maceski type to loophole as d6
Option 2: cripps to Hodge, motlop to Daniel. Next week brodie smith to ablett. In an ideal world smith scores 110 and ablett scores 100 and I can do that in 1 trade next week, but in all likelihood will have to make 2 trades next week.

    luke · 17/07/2015 at 17:37

    Should mention I only have 7 trades left atm

    Tyler · 17/07/2015 at 18:57

    If smith scores 110 I wouldn't trade him out

Jimmy · 17/07/2015 at 18:12

Do I go Krakouer to Caleb Daniel or hold him for another week?

Danny · 17/07/2015 at 18:23

Boston > Maynard
Cripps > Ablett

Leaves me with 24k in the bank and a full premo team. Will have 9 trades left afterwards. Do I pull the trigger?

How good is Goldy playing tonight!! The guy is on fire. If he keeps this up, we could be looking at our first 200+ SC individual player score this season. I reckon my VC might do it.

    Paul Walnuts · 17/07/2015 at 20:20

    58 SC points at 1/4 time ,glad i put the VC on him because I couldn't make up mind between Ablett,Fyfe or Rocky

      Jambo · 17/07/2015 at 20:37

      73 SC points at quarter-time. I am also glad that I put the VC on him. Looks like he could get close to 200 pts. He's even the highest possession holder at quarter-time.

    Matt · 17/07/2015 at 20:21

    Isnt he! If I was a betting man, I would chuck a few dollars on him as a smoky to win the Brownlow.

      Tophawk · 17/07/2015 at 20:27

      I reckon! Fyfey is always a chance to get rubbed out.

      hedski · 17/07/2015 at 22:39

      Threw 10 on him at qtr time for a brownlow place 60 back.

    Poloko48 · 17/07/2015 at 20:52

    104 approaching 1/2 time

        Matt · 17/07/2015 at 21:46

        Hes going to pass 200 easily.

          Jambo · 17/07/2015 at 22:23

          Just before full-time, Goldstein was 208.

          Jambo · 17/07/2015 at 22:24

          Finished on 213!

            Matt · 17/07/2015 at 22:50

Dean · 17/07/2015 at 20:52

Glad i went VC on Goldy

    Dean · 17/07/2015 at 20:55

    Goldy on 108 at half time.

    Tophawk · 17/07/2015 at 21:44

    Goldy is a monster. A ruckman, a midfielder, and a forward all in one. With disposal efficiency!!! Unbelievable.

Dean · 17/07/2015 at 21:00

If Fyfe is life, that means Goldstien is the Apple of my eye ergo Golden Delicious

Tophawk · 17/07/2015 at 21:25

Goldy is GOLD

iamme · 17/07/2015 at 21:50

Goldy 170

3 quarter time 220 plus is on the cards, surely most of us have him as VC?

    CashCows · 17/07/2015 at 21:54

    I was actually thinking of having my VC on someone playing on the saturday just to be a little different. But went with Goldy in the end due to the inability to loophole anyone besides Cox.

    Thank god, he's gonna be 200+ the way he's going.

    Dean · 17/07/2015 at 22:40

    Went Goldy also, Bloody hell in my 4 league games, 3 out of 4 of my opponents have Goldy as VC so allot more people picked him as VC then I thought, I knew he was popular but not this popular.

    Now watch Fyfe score 230+ lol

Lee · 17/07/2015 at 21:57

Hi community,

Defence: Shaw, Simpson, Picken, Newnes, Smith, Lever (Hamling, Pearce)

Midfield: Fyfe, Hannebery, Pendles, Beams, JPK, Wines, Parker, Jelwood, (Steele, Boston, Lambert)

Rucks: Goldstein, Nic Nat (Read)

Forwards: Gray, Martin, Mitchell, Swan, Dahlhaus, Krak, (McKernan, Dale)

With 5 trades left and $432k in the war chest. I was thinking of either upgrading boston or hamling to hodge or/and downgrading one of them to daniel or maynard. Should I do the hodge trade only or both? Or any other suggestions, thanks

    Lee · 18/07/2015 at 00:57


    Liam · 18/07/2015 at 12:41

    Hamling to Hodge

Lazy 213 for Goldstein…

Tulendeena · 17/07/2015 at 22:24

213 Goldy unscaled , shame everyone had him as vc, that would be the best POD VC

Oh well, can't get too greedy ;p

    Bill Lawry · 17/07/2015 at 22:32

    He's done it! 213 not out, he's a hero! I wanna boof him get him up here!!!

Goldy vc. Reckon I’ll chance harry taylor cap.

iamme · 17/07/2015 at 22:38

When I saw Goldy 68 at Q-time, I waited 5 mins into the second quarter before putting the C on T.Read lol

221 Just an awesome performance.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 17/07/2015 at 23:06

    Yeah two ruckman get the vc and c tonight. VC goldy C cox. And that is with fyfe, abs and rocky in my team! I knew he was gonna go big but not that big, dominated the ruck as expected but 27 possies that is midfield numbers.

Tophawk · 17/07/2015 at 22:40

Hi Community,

Should I take Goldy's VC score of 221?

Any thoughts Jock? Higgo? Crouching?

      Tophawk · 18/07/2015 at 10:10

      Got rid of spud Griffen months ago. Also got rid of TBC!

      And yes, I will be taking Goldy's VC score. I was just being "snide" with that earlier post.

      442 SC points. Thank you very much. Still in awe with that performance by Goldstein.

      Oh well, I guess these things can happen. You must have had a tough week at work.

Swans2012 · 17/07/2015 at 22:57

Take hibberds 72 or play b smith, I’m thinking play smith, more potential gain than loss right?

    Dean · 17/07/2015 at 23:07

    take the 72 for sure, don't even think about it.

    Derek · 17/07/2015 at 23:29

    Take it

    hedski · 17/07/2015 at 23:39

    I’d go with smith swanny.
    Lots of possesions lately coming good big game

    Swans2012 · 18/07/2015 at 08:58

    Thanks for the input guys, you’ve made me second guess myself! Playing smith, worst case he scores 50 and I lose 20, best case he scores 110 + and I win. If Hibberd had scored 80 I’d take it but 72, I’ll roll the dice

      Tophawk · 18/07/2015 at 10:07

      I agree.

      72 is a lame duck score. I have learnt that you need to be aggressive without being greedy. By playing Smith you are aggressive without being greedy IMO.

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 18/07/2015 at 12:26

      Yeah back in Smith I have a feeling he is gonna have a good game not quite as good as his namesake Steve but 90-100.

Mitch · 17/07/2015 at 23:02

Take o’briens 79 or play Steele


Put Steele forward and pick Steele or Daniel

    Dean · 17/07/2015 at 23:15

    Take O'brien's 76 and put Steele forward and pick Steele ahead of Daniel.

    This season a score of 80+ from premo's is a good score, let alone getting 76 from a rookie, you take 70+ every day of the week from a rookie in defence unless you have a ultra premium free to play.and take his side. I will bet you that at least one of your premium defenders will end up scoring lower the 76 you watch….

    Good Luck m8


      Mitch · 18/07/2015 at 10:14

      O’brien is in my midfield covering jelwood

Youngy · 17/07/2015 at 23:11

Damn, Didn't have the vc on Goldy. That's ganna cost me…

Maybe Ablett can pull out a 230?

    Derek · 17/07/2015 at 23:27

    8 out of 10 of my opponents have VC on Goldy

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 17/07/2015 at 23:54

      Yeah with no real ruck and with goldys form i think most would have plonked the VC on goldy.

      BigDropKick · 18/07/2015 at 09:44

      only 4 out of 10 have vc on Goldy in mine : )

Dean · 17/07/2015 at 23:23

What are your projection score's for round 16 ALL?

Mine is projecting at 2551 with Goldy as Captain.

    SC Virgin · 17/07/2015 at 23:40

    2,689 with Goldy as VC but dont believe it. Be nice but!

    Hodge, tmac, houli, kk, ibbo, newnes (smith, goddard)
    Abs, rocky, fyfe, JPK, parker, priddus, pendles, wines (boston, steele, mckenzie)
    Goldy, Maric (cox)
    Gray, martin, swan, winguard, tmitch, bj (bont, lambert)

    5 trades in the cupboard.

return of the v · 17/07/2015 at 23:25

couple of points. i dont think goldy as VC will mean much as most of the top teams will have him. i looked at the top 10 and all had goldy and im sure most had him as VC.

Secondly, having goldy takes the pressure off getting ablett, as C is decided for this week.(otherwise if goldy didnt perform i was going to make ablett captain, like most people im sure

Derek · 17/07/2015 at 23:54

Steve Smith chalks up a double ton tonight as well. Nicely played Steve.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 17/07/2015 at 23:55

    Best batsman in the world, his rise has been nothing short of astounding

      Derek · 18/07/2015 at 00:15

      A Sutherland shire boy πŸ™‚

    Derek · 18/07/2015 at 00:14

    Should I tleave the c on Steve Smiths 215?

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 18/07/2015 at 00:17

      Yep he should be the C.

      hedski · 18/07/2015 at 00:56

      Put it on shane watson

    Tophawk · 18/07/2015 at 10:02

    Steve Smith is incredible. His technique is somewhat quirky, but Bradman's technique was a bit as well.

    If he continues to develop as a batsman, I think we could be looking at the new Don Bradman of the 21st century. I know it is a huge statement, but if he can average 75 ish for his career, that puts him right up there with the great Don. With the sheer amount of cricket played across the 3 formats (Unlike back in Bradman's days) I think a test average around 75 will put him right up there. His average of 75+ should he achieve this over his career, it will probably be over double the amount of tests played by Bradman.

      Youngy · 18/07/2015 at 22:58

      I doubt that you will ever be able to say someone is as good as Bradman

Blueprime · 18/07/2015 at 02:04

Gotta love Goldy.

Rick Grimes · 18/07/2015 at 03:58

I think it’s stupid for a player to score 221. Can’t justify that other than more dodgy scoring by CD. There’s been a lot of that this season.

    Budstar · 18/07/2015 at 04:32

    Unless you watched the game, have any idea about football. He absolutely dominated and deserves the score he got!! Obviously you don't have him or put the VC on him??

    Tyler · 18/07/2015 at 07:16

    Here are just some of his stats from last night compared with Matthew Priddis' 196 point game in round 7:

    Goldy: 27 disposals (14 contested) at 92% DE
    Priddis: 39 disposals (11 contested) at ?% DE
    Goldy: 8 marks
    Priddis: 4 marks
    Goldy: 4 tackles
    Priddis: 7 tackles
    Goldy: 7 free kicks for
    Priddis: 1 free kick for
    Goldy: 1 free kick against
    Priddis: 0 free kick against
    Goldy: 1 goal
    Priddis: 2 goals
    Goldy: 8 clearances
    Priddis: 4 clearances
    Goldy: 56 hitouts
    Priddis: 0 hitouts
    Goldy: 1 clanger
    Priddis: 1 clanger

    Deserving of 221? I think yes

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 18/07/2015 at 09:11

      And the important one hit outs to advantage. There would have been a stack of them as everytime he rucked itwent down a blue and whites throat.

      Youngy · 18/07/2015 at 23:00

      For me it's hard to compare to Priddis score as I don't think Priddis deserved a 196.

    Tony · 18/07/2015 at 08:00

    Sounds like you didn't have him as VC or C – I did and I am very very happy

      Budstar · 18/07/2015 at 08:37

      Boom….well done

    Jambo · 18/07/2015 at 08:27

    I agree. Consistency lacks. Well, I certainly benefited this week. I hope that you benefit soon from these very high scores.

      Big G · 18/07/2015 at 10:52

      221 – that is probably the equal to a forward kicking 20 goals

        Big G · 18/07/2015 at 11:42

        FYI: Goldy had 20 H/O to advantage. 100 SC points before possessions.

          Rick Grimes · 18/07/2015 at 12:37

          Exactly, the scoring is screwed if you consider a forward could kick 15 goals and get less. Yes he had a barnstormer, but that score is so far outside the norm it makes a mockery. basically they are saying that’s the best individual performance of the year. I’m saying it wasn’t.

            SideBySidebottom · 18/07/2015 at 13:09

            If that forward laid four tackles and received seven free kicks you might find he'd score as high.

            Youngy · 18/07/2015 at 23:02

            Buckley scored a 270 in 2001 I think.

        Derek · 18/07/2015 at 11:47

        Or buddy kicking 13

          Tony · 18/07/2015 at 18:46

          The SC scoring formulas are black and white. Pick your players according to this and the scores are valid.
          That's what the game is all about.

Mac · 18/07/2015 at 08:53

Trade Pearce or Hamling? Thinking Hamling as Pearce is still playing and I'll move Pearce on next week?

    Tophawk · 18/07/2015 at 10:12

    Trade out Hamling if you have to. Pearce is still playing good footy whilst the hamster will like miss another 1-2 weeks anyways.

Tophawk · 18/07/2015 at 10:15

I woke up this morning and the first thing I thought was,
"Did Goldy really score 221 SC points as my VC?" LOL
Still in awe by that performance by him last night.

Does anybody know the highest ever SC Captain/VC score by an individual player in a single round? My guess it is probably a game played by Abblett? Be interesting to know. I reckon 221 would have to be in the top 10?

shemm · 18/07/2015 at 10:52

hi community, I’m at full premium with 5 trades left. the only problem is is that I have hibberd who’s underperforming. is it worth using two trades to upgrade him to a hodge or a murphy, or trade him with one trade to someone like burgoyne or birchall. or should i not trade him at all. cheers community

Cliffy · 18/07/2015 at 11:34

Hi community, so as I discussed yesterday I was pretty certain on going Cripps – GAJ, however the main dilemma is that the only rookie I can downgrade to make this upgrade possible is Lever, who has been my D6 with Hamling and A.Pearce on my bench. I run the risk of hoping these rookies on my bench continue to get games, along with the downgrade rookie I bring in for Lever (likely Maynard at this stage) for the rest of the season. So, that is Option A.

Option B is to get Sidebottom/Rockliff in for Cripps using just the one trade, and waiting for GAJ, as well as waiting for Lever to fatten up more in cash before moving him on in a few weeks time for my last D6 upgrade.

What do you guys reckon?


    Cliffy · 18/07/2015 at 11:38

    Just to help you guys get an idea of the important lines involved in the possible downgrades/upgrades:

    Defenders: Shaw, Houli, Newnes, Hodge, Ibbotson, Lever (Hamling, A.Pearce)

    Midfielders: Fyfe, Hannebery, Pendlebury, JPK, Gray, Cripps, Wines, Steele (Selwood, McKenzie, Amon)

Pots · 18/07/2015 at 12:20

Community thoughts on the best combo?
11 trades and $51K Currently have Hodge in MID so Maynard will be MID bench via DPP

Oxley/Sloane for Ablett/Maynard,
Oxley/Sloane for Rocky/Maynard,
Smith/Sloane for Ablett/Maynard,
Smith/Sloane for Rocky/Maynard,

Obviously Rocky will leave much more cash to grab Bartel next week.

Mitch · 18/07/2015 at 13:06

Steele or Daniel onfield?

    SCaddict · 18/07/2015 at 13:26

    Man of Steele

    dannyyboyy · 18/07/2015 at 13:31

    Steele all the way. he is fyfe like. his attack on the contested ball is second to none. this guy is a supercoach champion of the future.

Mitch · 18/07/2015 at 13:09

And will putting the C on Selwood onfield gimme Goldys VC score?

    SCaddict · 18/07/2015 at 13:25

    Yes absolutely!

    Youngy · 18/07/2015 at 23:02


Jdogg · 18/07/2015 at 13:14

Need some advice. Have Smith and Lever in my backline. 5 trades and looking to upgrade Smith to McDonald but not super confident on Lever. Thoughts? Could also hold out and upgrade Cripps to Ablett instead?

dannyyboyy · 18/07/2015 at 13:16

i need a defender for oxley. i can afford anyone but im leaning towards TMAC, houli and rance. TMAC is at the best price but i want the best performer from here on out. Any input appreciated.

    Mac · 18/07/2015 at 13:20

    Rance. Good run home and is pivotal for the Tigers

      dannyyboyy · 18/07/2015 at 14:17

      he was my initial target until i saw TMACs price and score last week, but im worried about his consistency. i think your right though. ill probably take rance

Derek · 18/07/2015 at 14:26

Put Motlop on field. Then through loopholes I can take either BSmith, Daniels HGoddard or Steele score to cover Selwood

    dannyyboyy · 18/07/2015 at 14:39

    steele is flying in the early stages. im one spot off full premo but witth steele as my on field rookie, i can almost trick myself into believing im fully set! (except ablett for griff which im doing next week) and im targeting bartel as my last fwd spot.

      Derek · 18/07/2015 at 14:54

      Same. Griffin to Gaz and Motlop to Bartel next week and I’m done with 7 trades left.

        dannyyboyy · 18/07/2015 at 15:36

        better than me i got 6 left after this round. 1 to get gaz then 2 to get bartel. ill get bartel over the next couple of weeks. ill wait til the right rookie downgrade pops up. then hold and ill have 3 for injuries. i wanted 4-5 but i lost out bringing in sloane and then trading him out, twice! and i had rocky in and out to. if i had of chose more wisely at the start of the season (not picking sloane up for 640k, rookie error and lesson learnt), i would be travelling a bit better. in saying that i dont think there is a single coach out there that doesnt have a "if only" story.

Thank god Ablett scored big otherwise it would have really hurt me not having the vc on Goldy!

    Swans2012 · 18/07/2015 at 18:25

    Me too youngy, like a weight lifting off your shoulders

Tyler · 18/07/2015 at 17:43

When your on 737 from 3 players played

SideBySidebottom · 18/07/2015 at 17:58

Looks like you picked a good week to trade Cloke out, Derek.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 18/07/2015 at 18:02

    “If” cloke has been Dereks cat. Had 9 lives so far.

      Swans2012 · 18/07/2015 at 18:34

      Big if… I reckon he’s kept him… Hope not but…

        Derek · 19/07/2015 at 00:00

        Cloke was traded to Hodge this afternoon. Happy day.

          Derek · 19/07/2015 at 00:03

          I don’t even know what happened to Cloke. I was to busy getting out to the Swans v Hawks game. Happy Day.

    Youngy · 18/07/2015 at 21:25

    He did get a free point…

Tyler · 18/07/2015 at 20:46

Nooooooooooo! Reverse traded then subbed blitz for cox, but forgot to put the E on Blicavs again!

    Dean · 18/07/2015 at 22:52

    Your post was only 2 hours ago, you cannot reverse a trade once the round starts, the round started on Friday night.. So clearly your talking fecal matter.

    I dont understand why people make up $hit like this. What's the point?

      Tyler · 19/07/2015 at 07:46

      Mate I only realised that Blitz wasn't an emergency at that point in time, when I was looking at my projected score in gameday. Settle ya kettle

Dean · 18/07/2015 at 22:48

What are you guys scoring like, with how many played & captain?

I'm on 1990 with Goldy as my Captain and have:- Beams, Dangerfield, Gray, Martin, Houli & Lever to Play.

I think the highest score for round 16 will be around 2800 to 2900+

    hedski · 18/07/2015 at 23:12

    I’m on 1835 deano with goldy cap.
    Got stef gray lever smith danger dusty and rance to go.
    Reckon you’ll do me by a hunj fifty

      hedski · 18/07/2015 at 23:14

      Mayb 80

        Dean · 19/07/2015 at 00:01

        cheers so I guess its fair to say around the 2600 will be par this week. I was hoping to go from 1410 closer to top 1000 but I will be lucky if I gain at all.

        I wonder how many right up there for the $50k will trade Fyfe to GAJ I bet its quite a few, coz it's costing them allot, especially when a few point means so much…

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 18/07/2015 at 23:39

    1776 with goldy capt. 9 to play. Rocky, winguard, wines, martin, maric, gray, houli, tmac, newnes. So hopefully looking at a big one. Someone may reach the holy grail 3,000 if they have the perfect mix. Ie sheil and caddy. Would b one helluva team.

Youngy · 18/07/2015 at 23:03

Hope Dan Mckenzie isn't a late in, otherwise I'm screwed

Nicholas · 18/07/2015 at 23:41

Looking for a captain option

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 18/07/2015 at 23:50

    Rumour is martin has an injury but only a rumour. Rocky could go large but he or beams will have vince for company who does a good job of restricting. Whichever one vince goes to the other will get off the chain. I’m a big fine wine fan and phil meant alot to him so he will be fired up per last week. I reckon any of them u could put the C on and get 110 plus.

    Dean · 19/07/2015 at 00:13

    Yeah out of those id go Ollie mate.

SCDonkey · 19/07/2015 at 00:16

Oh wow!! First I’ve seen my SC team scoring this much.

C’mon Supercoach Gods be good to me.

Sitting at 1891 points from 15(16), still have Rockliff Zorko Maric Martin Newnes Gray and Dangerfield to play.

    Derek · 19/07/2015 at 00:30

    I’m predicted to score around 2500, but that will only win me 3 out of 10 H2H games.

    Massive scores this week

      SCDonkey · 19/07/2015 at 10:08

      There sure will be massive scores this week. I am hoping for Zorko and Maric to go big today as both are not in many teams.

      Team is projected well over 2600 and hoping all 7 players i have left tons up.

        SCDonkey · 19/07/2015 at 15:40

        Wooohooo Zorko you good thing. Now i need big score from Maric.

          SideBySidebottom · 19/07/2015 at 20:42

          Ba BAUM.

Derek · 19/07/2015 at 00:17

Should I take Steeles 75 or risk BSmith or HGoddard?

    Tyler · 19/07/2015 at 07:49

    I would take steele's score. I think Smith is picking up his scoring a little bit but 75 is still a good game from him. And we don't really know what Hugh Goddards scoring is like

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 19/07/2015 at 09:08

    Yeah probably play it safe and lock in Steele.

    Swans2012 · 19/07/2015 at 09:49

    I’d take a chance on smith Derek, won’t do much worse than 65 I reckon

    I N Pieman · 19/07/2015 at 11:37

    Smith had to get out of the 60’s sooner or later. Maybe role the dice with brodie

      Derek · 19/07/2015 at 13:45

      I just realised I have a free look at BSmiths score.

      I have Steele on bench with McKenzie on field, I have BSmith on bench with Newnes on field. I can switch McKenzie and newness depending on who’s score I want, won’t risk HGoddard.

shemm · 19/07/2015 at 00:39

thoughts on trading out underperforming goldy for giles?

    I N Pieman · 19/07/2015 at 11:36

    If you’ve got Gaz get rid of him as well. He’s no good

luke · 19/07/2015 at 08:42

Mixed emotions about this round. Got goldys score as captain, and brought in GAJ this week. However, my other 11 players have all failed to hit their projected score with 3 scores in the 70s from Franklin, Murphy and Higgins. Currently 1620 from 13, definitely feels under par.

    Tophawk · 19/07/2015 at 10:10

    I would not be so sure Luke. I think this could be a massive "shake out" round for players. Yes, players which had Goldstein as VC or C will likely post big scores. However, I reckon there are many highly ranked players which did not have the VC or C on Goldy. Many players still dont have Abblett either.

    Therefore, if you did have Goldy or Gaz as your VC/C you are going to be fine. (scores of 2500+) For players that stuck with Fyfe for example, are going to get screwed and will pull the overall par score down. (scores 2300+) I reckon par this week will be around 2400.

    I had Goldy as VC and I have 8 premos to play with 1700 on the board. I know that if I can touch 2500 I will be very happy.


      Swans2012 · 19/07/2015 at 11:27

      Agree, I think a lot of the time we over do par. 2400ish will be par I’d reckon. I might sneak 2500 ish with gaz as captain, it’s just that decision 6 weeks ago to take Jacobs instead of goldy that keeps kicking me. 1400 off 11 for me so far, so could go either way.

        I N Pieman · 19/07/2015 at 11:31

        Also think 2400 will be par. Less than 40% have Goldy & about 25% Gaz. I think anything over 2400 will be a good score

          luke · 19/07/2015 at 11:45

          Thanks for making me feel better guys

    Dean · 19/07/2015 at 16:14

    I disagree par will not be below 2500 however depending on your ranking determines your idea of par. For example im ranked 1410 overall and well and truly in top 1% so I believe par will be at least 2500

    If your overall rank is in the 5000 then par will obviously be allot less, more likely around 2300 to 2400

      luke · 19/07/2015 at 16:26

      Dropped to 700th from 360th after a crapish week last week. This has probably been the most bizarre week of supercoach this year for me. I’m full premo except for smith in defence. Not 1 player outside of goldy and ablett have met their projected scores. 2036 from 17 now so I guess I’m going to drop a little more this week

      Poloko48 · 19/07/2015 at 19:21

      61.1% of coaches don't have Goldy, let alone put the C on him.
      92.6% of coaches don't have GAJ.

      Think you'll find par will be around 2400 regardless of where you're ranked.

Brent · 19/07/2015 at 11:10

Rockliff or beams captain?

Used my vc on fyfe

    I N Pieman · 19/07/2015 at 11:28

    Tough call but Id go with rocky. I think he’s due for a biggy

I N Pieman · 19/07/2015 at 11:39

Will be interesting to see what people will give up this week for Gaz

    Derek · 19/07/2015 at 12:40

    I’m going to have to go Griffin >> Gaz πŸ™‚

      I N Pieman · 19/07/2015 at 12:50

      I like it Derek. Lucky you got rid of cloke

        Derek · 19/07/2015 at 13:49

        The annoying thing is I estimate I’ll be $7k short for the straight trade, I thought Griffin would do what he did but didn’t see 189 from Gaz.

          I N Pieman · 19/07/2015 at 14:17

          Think you’ll find Gaz is 697k this evening. You have plenty of trades compared to the rest. Over 6 is good. Your well over that

Gawn or Martin? · 19/07/2015 at 11:47

Who will score higher this round?
Max Gawn or Dustin Martin?

    Tyler · 19/07/2015 at 12:18

    I reckon Gawn will. There's been talk that Martin is playing with an injury of some sort, but even if he isn't Dusty hasn't been in good form lately while Maxy Gawn has been the opposite

Harry · 19/07/2015 at 12:37

Who should the captain go to out of Beams, rockliff, wines or gray

    I N Pieman · 19/07/2015 at 12:54

    Pretty good case for all if them. Rocky

SCDonkey · 19/07/2015 at 14:37

Who would you bring in out the 3

Deledio Hodge or Kennedy?

Still have 7 trades left and $156K in the war chest

Looking to upgrade Mckernan and downgrade Boston to a playing rookie.

    Tophawk · 19/07/2015 at 18:26

    Hard to look past Hodgey. He would be my choice.

    SideBySidebottom · 19/07/2015 at 19:24

    It's all quality there Donkey, there's no way to tell who'll perform best so trust your gut.

LJB · 19/07/2015 at 16:59

Lumumba is definatly going this week, well below par week after week. Question is who to trade in?

    I N Pieman · 19/07/2015 at 18:37

    Year after year actually. How much cash have you got?

      SideBySidebottom · 19/07/2015 at 19:22

      So sorry we didn't keep the spud. Who'll remind us on a daily basis what getting ahead of yourself looks like.

      LJB · 19/07/2015 at 20:07

      Only got 60k but at full premo if u include Lumumba and b smith. Have 10 trades up my sleeve tho pieman.

        Dean · 19/07/2015 at 21:46

        You cannot class being full premo if you still have Lumumba & Smith in your side as they are not even close to premiums status.

        On the flip side you have a ton of trades left so don't just get anyone coz they are cheap. The only premium Defenders that are must haves this year are: Shaw, Hodge, Picken, Murphy – The others to get are Simpson, Newnes, Rance, Enright, McDonald.

        Even if you have to trade 3 or so rookies to get the cash do that first.

        Good luck m8

          LJB · 19/07/2015 at 22:04

          thanks Dean, yeah have heaps of cash in my bench players so will be culling a few this week. I am planning on keeping smith as i can loophole him with my bench cover to get a par score for D6 each week and am happy to do that. Can't hold both him and Lumumba tho.
          Lumumba will loose even more cash in the coming weeks so need a replacement asap.
          Thanks for ur input

return of the v · 19/07/2015 at 18:28

brodie smith….

    I N Pieman · 19/07/2015 at 18:36

    Useless. 8 points in the second half. Loading the shotgun

    Poloko48 · 19/07/2015 at 18:48

    so glad I dumped him this week for the little master via DPP!

      SideBySidebottom · 19/07/2015 at 19:19

      I'd rather be upgrading Oxley but I'll put up with erratic scoring from a rookie, Smith has had a difficult year and I take no pleasure in flicking him but he has to go.

    Tophawk · 19/07/2015 at 19:17

    Another turd.

    Failed to register a single point in the third quarter.

    His head is on the chopping block this week.

simo · 19/07/2015 at 19:16

What’s a par score for the weekend community????? Started huge early with Goldstein but slowed as the weekend went on. Looking around 2530 as the last game of the rd winds up

    Tophawk · 19/07/2015 at 19:23

    I reckon it will be around 2400-2450. Your score is definately above par. I will end up with approx 2550 which I am happy with.

    Derek · 19/07/2015 at 19:39

    A lot will be around 2500

carlashirley90 · 19/07/2015 at 19:37

2741 last week 2619 this week huge moment here πŸ™‚

    Derek · 19/07/2015 at 19:40

    Are you in love with Zorko yet?

      Derek · 19/07/2015 at 19:44

      2595 for me this week.

        carlashirley90 · 19/07/2015 at 19:53

        Nice scoring Derek! My 2619 was all luck from D.Smith banging 4 goals and best player from GWS on the day.

          Derek · 19/07/2015 at 20:39

          You must be pretty happy with Zorko as well

        Derek · 19/07/2015 at 20:41

        Somehow managed to win 9 out of 10 leagues. 5 wins by less than 40pts. Happy with that after a slow start

          SideBySidebottom · 19/07/2015 at 21:45

          I would've thought 2595 was enough to win 10 out of 10.

iamme · 19/07/2015 at 19:45

2467 last week lost one of my league's by 34, 2558 this week and won all my league's…..very happy chappy! Hopefully will get back into top 1000. as I dropped 100 or so places last round.

Tophawk · 19/07/2015 at 19:53

Another brilliant score. Wayyyy above par.

Ahhh Zorko the magnificient! Welcome!! (Thanks Crouching 1)

Zorko helped me to push me to my PB of 2561 this week in year one of SC.

A quick thank you to Goldy…..442 SC points. Might put a few coins on him for the charlie.

Hopefully this round will push me back into the top 10, 000.

I know I cant win this year, but I reckon you can! Good luck.


Tophawk · 19/07/2015 at 20:43

Another brilliant score. Wayyyy above par.

Swans2012 · 19/07/2015 at 21:23

2472 drops me 42 to 216! Im pinballing last 3 weeks 77 down to 282 up to 172 now down to 216. Taking a punt on smith and Ollie wines dodgy score were the main offenders stopping me from getting par… Oh and that dam not having goldy thing….. Reckon i did alright considering….

    Derek · 19/07/2015 at 21:48

    Your still going ok. How far are you away from top?

    Have you got Gaz?

    I climbed a bit this week, up to 459th but 700pts off the top

      Swans2012 · 20/07/2015 at 17:14

      I’m about 833 off the top, tough to make up….
      Got gaz (and vc’ed him) last week. Going to take mega risks to try to catch up ie maybe trading in another non player to use as a em looper up forward now that h Goddard is playing, and playing well I might add.

      Good to hear your climbing now that you’ve taken your Cloke off….

Joe · 19/07/2015 at 21:51

Full premo team (except fkn brodie smith)

Is higgins –> Dalhaus and A.Swallow –> Hanners good trades?? Or do i pull the pin on Smith and bring in Malceski??


Dean · 19/07/2015 at 21:53

I thought par score for those in top 1% would be 2600+ I cannot believe my score of 2539 improved my overall ranking from 1410 to 1229 – So my overall rank improved by 181.
Yet last week I scored 2509 and my score only went from 1544 to 1410 improved or improved by 134

Oh well as long as I gain ground, I cannot complain.

    Derek · 19/07/2015 at 22:16

    If you look at the top 20, most scored around 2550, only 1 went over 2600 and a couple went under 2450, they were very similar.

    It would be interesting to know how many trades the top 20 have left, my guess is they would be pretty few left.

Derek · 19/07/2015 at 22:31

Was going to go Griffin & Motlop >>> Gaz & Bartel, but I’m $37k short, thanks to Gaz’s big score.

My Team:

Def: Hodge, Shaw, Newnes, KK, Enright, Simpson, (BSmith, HGoddard)

Mids: Fyfe, Pendlebury, Priddis, JPK, SMitchell, Parker, Selwood, Griffin, (Steele, mcKenzie, Lambert)

Ric: Goldy, Jacobs, (Lucy)

Fwd: Goddard, Swan, Dusty, Gray, Dahlhaus, Motlop, (Daniels, Payne)

9 Trades left and & $200k

Gaz has to come in this week for Griffen. Do I get rid of BSmith and have plenty of cash to get Bartel next week. Or should I try and keep BSmith at D7 and squeeze the extra cash from Lambert, Steele or Daniels.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 19/07/2015 at 23:05

    You have smith there as a backup so probably best to keep him, that’s why I’ve got him at d7. Can you go daniel to a rook mid using lambert and creating another DPP with steele and lambert? Then can go Bartel – motlop next week? Does that give u the cash to go Griffen – abs?

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 19/07/2015 at 23:26

    Or u could go mckenzie to another dpp mid/def maynard? keeping your dpp. If u want to keep daniel.

      Derek · 19/07/2015 at 23:46

      Not a bad idea, although I like having Mckenzie as a loophole. I could squeeze $80k from him and hope the gap between Motlop and Bartel doesn’t grow by more than another $40k.

TRIGGER HAPPY · 19/07/2015 at 22:56

What a disappointing Sunday and weird round. If u takeout goldys and abs scores only had 7 players scored over the ton. Most premos scored high 80’s or 90’s. Especially in the oh so unpredictable defence. Finished just shy of 2500 so par i guess but ollie what a difference a week makes.

Aaron · 20/07/2015 at 00:39

Which one to drop out of Swallow or Selwood?

    Swans2012 · 20/07/2015 at 18:43

    Swallow, clearly imo

Dave Dreamer · 20/07/2015 at 06:55

Malcheski for a punt?

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 20/07/2015 at 11:05

    Yep why not? Going much better than Smith and about the same price.

      Swans2012 · 20/07/2015 at 18:43


@KrazeeEyezK1lla · 20/07/2015 at 09:35

2468 this week. Rolled the dice and didn't get Gaz. Big regret. Now I have to work out how to get him in when he's 700k. Not great.

Only lot 103 spots overall and when down to 807, which is alright/surprising.

Buddy, Titch, Fyfe, Montagna, Beams, Newnes, Simpson all fairly average. Come on boys

geordie · 20/07/2015 at 10:03

My boston lobsters won the round with a whopping score of 2802. V happy πŸ™‚

    Gold Rush · 20/07/2015 at 10:43

    Good stuff geordie, congratulations.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 20/07/2015 at 10:45

    That is huge. Congrats gr8 score. Lobsters for everyone!

    iamme · 20/07/2015 at 13:07

    Congrats Geordie, 2802 simply a massive score!

Guest · 20/07/2015 at 10:46

Any idea how Houli only scored 67 from 22 possessions, including 17 kicks and 73% DE? Only 3 clangers to boot. Predominantly uncontested, but that shouldn't matter much when he's efficient.

Bizarre part is that his CP/UP count only adds to 17 out of his 22 touches…

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 20/07/2015 at 11:04

    I’ve given up trying to figure out the scoring. There are so many variables. I just take the good with the bad.

    derek · 20/07/2015 at 11:14

    Houli had a poor first half when the game was a contest.

      Guest · 20/07/2015 at 12:18

      Fair enough he was down in the first half, but to downgrade him approximately 30 points is pretty rough.

        Guest · 20/07/2015 at 12:19

        I wonder what scaling would've occurred if the Saints didn't comeback in the last

@Matr1x23 · 20/07/2015 at 11:41

Community, some serious help is needed now. This is the moment where us, United together help out a fellow member. I've been 1st in my cash leagues pretty much all season, but I'm dying a slow death. It just feels like there are a lot of better teams around me. So help me my friends, and let us rise as one.

Okay so on to the scenario at hand. I've got 6 trades and f&)@& all money $2300 to be exact. Here's my team.

Defence: shaw, McDonald, Higgins, newnes, Simpson, smith (lever, Pearce)

Midfield: Fyfe, hannerbery, Pendlebury, priddis, Dangerfield, Heppell, wines, Lewis (Boston, lambert, Amon)

Ruck: Goldstein, Martin (Mckernan)

Forward: Gray, swan, Goddard, Deledio, walker, Steele (lonie, read)

Let me know what you guys think! Thanks community!

    Dave Dreamer · 20/07/2015 at 12:12

    Smith, Walker and F6 standout to me. I'd say start with getting Brodie Smith out. He's a spud at the moment. Ideally you want to get Hodge in, but that may be problematic at his current price. Houli looks value at $450k odd and can go huge. Lever to Goddard, Smith to Houli might be an option. Lonie I think has tapped out, so another option is him to Knight, Walker to Bartel, leaving $170k. Then in a couple of weeks you can finish off your forward line after Steele fattens.

    The hail mary play is to get GAZ in for Wines or Lewis. Again Lonie is the one to cut IMO. Probably means you are stuck with a Smith or Walker, but they are both capable of producing (and gosh I wish Brodie would!).

    derek · 20/07/2015 at 12:29

    If my team I would swing McKernan to fwd and upgrade him to Bartel and downgrade Lonie to HGoddard. This will give you a DEF/FWD swing set with Higgins.

    Next week downgrade Boston to rookie and upgrade BSmith. should have $519k to spend

      good call. I didn't see mckernan lurking there. At this stage of the season I think ruck cover is a luxury most can't afford.

        Thanks heaps guys. I truly appreciate it. Welcome Bartel & Goddard. Next week I’ll paint the fence for Smith, and then we’ll reasses from there.

I was having a look at the top 20 players in the overall rank, and there is a reason why most of them scored between 2500 and 2575, it is because their teams are very similar.

Don't quote me on this, but it seems that at least 15 of the top 20 had the following players:

Shaw, Hodge, McDonald, Higgins
Fyfe, Beams, JPK, Priddis, Pendlebury
Goddard, TMitchell, Swan, Gray, Dahlhaus, Dusty

I was surprised the second ruck was so varied. Only saw 2 with Jacobs. NicNat was probably second most popular just ahead of Blicavs.

Gaz was in less than half the teams. Will be interesting if the top 20 players have the cash and trades to get him in.

    The one that is killing me is shaw. Waiting for his spud score so he drops a bbt and then I can upgrade probably Smith but Smith is stagnant and shaw keeps delivering. Spent all my cash so have to wait for the calves to fatten. Damn frustrating.

    what will put the cat amongst the pigeons is if one of those 16 players is out for the season (especially goldy in Ruck). Will see how everyones bench cover and number of trades is going.

Rightio crew, 8 trades left 216,900 in bank

Looking at boston to knight

Would leave 7 and 350,700

Then selwood to hannebery

Would leave 6 and 203,600

Thaughts ???

    derek · 20/07/2015 at 14:28

    I personally think that is a sideways trade. have you got Gaz?

    need to show your full team.

      Adam · 20/07/2015 at 17:53

      Nah no gaz, not really sideways when selwoods underperforming and hanneberry is dominating

        derek · 20/07/2015 at 18:03

        I rate Selwood higher than Hannebery. There are 4 ultra proven premiums, based on who they are and what they have already done in Supercoach. gaz, pendlebury, Fyfe, Selwood.

        There are a bracket under them that includes Dangerfield, priddis, JPK, hannebery, Sloane, Rocky etc.

        To underrate Selwood will be a mistake, particularly as he has had a rest, Bartel, Kelly, Duncan and Stoke are all back to take the pressure off him. He always finishes the season strong. If he wasn't already in my team, I would be looking to get him in the week.

          Swans2012 · 20/07/2015 at 18:45

          Agree about sellwood. Sellwood – hanneberry = sideways and potential for kicking of oneself

            Adam · 20/07/2015 at 19:40

            I like ur points, now thinkn possibly houli to hodge ?
