Hi lekdog getting no love from this on phone mate. Incomprehensible.

David · 22/07/2015 at 18:57

Hi Lekdog, regarding your YouTube Mo S C News experiment…the audio part is clear enough but the audio and visual are frequently out of sync which is very distracting and not as fluid and professional as your usual fully charged battery version.

    LEKD0G · 22/07/2015 at 19:03

    Yeah thanks mate, she'll be back to normal next week no worries

Ethan · 22/07/2015 at 19:10

i got 2 choices, bring in bartel now for mckernan at f7(Bontempelli and him will rotate there), leave my self with 3 trades but the option to do a double downgrade then upgrade alex pearce sending smith into D7
or wait and let steele and o'brien max out then downgrade to bring in a bigger name like deledio which leaves me with 150k+steele/obrien's value of+pearce or brodie smith

    Luke · 22/07/2015 at 19:26

    in my opinion if you want the top scores, youre gonna have to pay the top dollar, option 2 for me

Luke · 22/07/2015 at 19:26

community who de we reckon to bring in out of dangerfield, priddis, beams or hannebry? or any other suggestions would be welcomed

    Ethan · 22/07/2015 at 19:30

    Dangerfield( be wary of sloane to return)
    Beams(nursing an Injury)

    @Rem_Wah · 23/07/2015 at 08:25

    Ward maybe.

    Jones · 23/07/2015 at 22:14

    Get on the Priddoris.
    Cheaper, proven gun, and will (like Hannas and Danger) consistently score over 100.

Jones · 22/07/2015 at 20:15

With 7 trades left I was looking to go a bit risky and trade Higgins for Malceski, allowing me to go Krakouer to Bartel in the forward line.


    Phil · 22/07/2015 at 21:16

    I like the second part. How much $$ would u be making in the 1st part? Because personally I don't see Malceski beating Higgins for the rest of the year, maybe equal him

    Marcus · 22/07/2015 at 21:18

    No dont trade a premo

    Jones · 22/07/2015 at 21:34

    Makes me around $150k in the first part. Could also go for Kelly as Lekdog suggested but not sure yet. Getting Bartel will complete my forward line and with the left over $$ I'll be able to go full premo next week in the midfield.

    My reasoning is that Higgins has been good of late but is too inconsistent to be considered a premo. The hit that I could potentially lose in points (b/w Higgins and Malceski) I'll make up with a more consistent player in the forward line and in the midfield next week.

      SideBySidebottom · 22/07/2015 at 23:00

      Higgins is definitely not a premium player.

3. Votes · 22/07/2015 at 20:53

My defence is Shaw, Hodge, Enright, Yeo and Pickenn. Who do I get for my D6? Looking at Laird and Tmac who do I get? Got 506 K

    randomcliche · 22/07/2015 at 21:35


    matthew · 23/07/2015 at 16:45


Josh · 22/07/2015 at 21:00

Who to get a d6 got 508k ?

    randomcliche · 22/07/2015 at 21:36

    Similar to 3 votes… Kelly. I like the malceski gamble also.

Liam · 22/07/2015 at 21:05

Brodie smith to Malceski?

    Luke · 22/07/2015 at 21:11

    i reckon wait a week and see how malceski goes,

      Liam · 22/07/2015 at 21:17

      Or James Kelly?

        Danners · 23/07/2015 at 14:55

        Kelly is a better option

Derek · 22/07/2015 at 21:17

I’m annoyed I can’t bring in both Gaz & Bartel this week (trade out Griffen & Motlop) because they did better last week than I had anticipated and therefore their values went up more than I can now afford, plus there not going to get any cheaper. So have to paint fence this week and downgrade one of my rookies (or BSmith who is my spud D7).

Probably an easy question, but who to get first, Gaz or Bartel?

    Brett H · 22/07/2015 at 21:25

    Gaz clearly in my eyes due to his being potentially a doubled captains score

    Derek · 22/07/2015 at 21:26

    After next week my team will look like:

    Shaw, Hodge, Newnes, Simpson, KK, Enright, (HGoddard, JKolo)

    Gaz, Fyfe, Pendlebury, Priddis, JPK, Selwood, Parker, SMitchell, (Steele, McKenzie, Payne)

    Godly, Jacobs, (Lucy)

    Swan, Goddard, Gray, Dusty, Dahlhaus, Bartel, (Lambert, Daniels)

    6 trades and approx $80k.

    In a few weeks the remaining rookies, Steele, Daniels, Lambert would have fattened a bit plus I have cash.

    KK, Newnes & SMitchell still need upgrading, who should I be looking at over the final weeks?

      randomcliche · 22/07/2015 at 21:39

      Def. Kelly. Hold newnes imo
      Mid rocky

        Derek · 22/07/2015 at 22:41

        Yeah. I like SMitchell (who has served me well) to Rocky.

        Sam knocks out 105’s but Rocky can go huge.

      Derek · 22/07/2015 at 22:50

      What about going SMitchell >> Gaz and Motlop >> Bartel. Have cash for that, and do Griffen to Rocky next week

        Derek · 22/07/2015 at 22:56

        Just have to live with Griffen one more week

        randomcliche · 23/07/2015 at 11:11

        Seems solid. Griff to ricky after that.

          randomcliche · 23/07/2015 at 11:11


            derek · 23/07/2015 at 13:06

            I might get rid of SMitchell & griffen this week for gaz and bartel, next week will have the cash to go BSmith & Steele to Rocky/Sloane & Rookie. Keep Motlop as F7/M9

          Hazey1977 · 23/07/2015 at 17:40

          TEAM RRRIIIIICCCKKKKYYYYY!!! (My Mrs has forced me into me watching The Voice

            SideBySidebottom · 23/07/2015 at 21:36

            Man up.

Mac · 22/07/2015 at 21:19

Thoughts on my team? 6 trades with 30k in the 50k in the bank

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

So was thinking Mckernan to Bartel as I believe McKernan will not make cash and could get dropped and then Lonie to Payne via Lambert DPP and that gives me a loophole option with over 100k in the bank with 4 trades remaining.


    randomcliche · 22/07/2015 at 21:41


    Derek · 22/07/2015 at 22:44

    McKernan might get dropped this week and make your decision easy.

    Maric is under performing. Might have to bite the bullet there

      Mac · 23/07/2015 at 07:20

      So if Mckernan gets dropped, trade him, if he plays, upgrade Maric?

      randomcliche · 23/07/2015 at 11:15

      Maric will get pumped by Sandi this week. But I prefer a d6 upgrade or creating a d7/r3 swing like gawn if possible. Bartel goddard all cheap as chips though.

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 23/07/2015 at 12:55

      Maric needs to loose Hampson. Impacting his scores like Currie/goldy. Goldy scores better as lone Ruckman same as the mullet

The Fat Cat · 22/07/2015 at 21:22

Hey community need a little help. Injuries have killed my year so only playing for league win that being said how much importance are we putting on getting the little master in our final teams. I have 2 trades left and can either use both trades to get Ablett in leaving me with Saad at d6 or use 1 trade to upgrade Saad to a premo and have 1 trade up my sleeve. Cheers in advance

    randomcliche · 22/07/2015 at 21:55

    2 trades without premo cover kinda hurts huh…Getting Gaz will increase your scoring potential no doubt but there is a snowflake chance in hell of all your premos staying on the park for the rest of the season. Suggest holding let rookies fatten when disaster strikes, like a one week suspension to teen wolf, paint the fence one up one down, with a swing set. Assumes you have a playing cover for saad this week. If not malceski or Kelly and hold. Cheers

    Cam_H · 22/07/2015 at 22:01

    I barely feel that I'm in a position to offer any advice to anyone given my RS performance this year (yes – 'me too' on the injury front), however with only two trades left I suggest that you hold both trades for injury protection. (I'm feeling very vulnerable with only six trades left, which was never my plan).

      randomcliche · 23/07/2015 at 11:16

      6 trades, you can afford to be aggressive if full premo I think.

Girdle · 22/07/2015 at 21:44

Is it worth fine tuning the team before finals with only four trades left? Or better to hold in case of injuries? Was thinking of strengthening bench cover: Smith to Kelly and McKernan to Ryder.

    Donavan · 22/07/2015 at 22:28

    Hold, you dont have the luxury of strengthening the bench with just 4 trades remaining.

    Any trade you do make should be aimed at on-field players, to ensure you advance each week of the finals.

      Girdle · 22/07/2015 at 22:38

      Gotcha, thanks!

    Derek · 22/07/2015 at 22:45

    If McKernan is dropped trade

Murray · 22/07/2015 at 23:12

Hi I only have 4 trades left and have brown as D6,however his scoring has been substandard for a D6.

I have 110kcash, and only want to use 1 trade and can spend 383k. Would someone like hurn 366k, savage 364k, Kelly 344k or Malceski 348k be the best options. All are coming off tons (except Malceski who had 94). Is there anyone else community can consider as a good semi premo defender

    Ethan · 22/07/2015 at 23:30

    Find a rookie to downgrade in 2 weeks time, then you can bring in a premo

      SideBySidebottom · 23/07/2015 at 21:45

      Risky with only four trades left.

        Murray · 23/07/2015 at 22:08

        So what player or what should I do side by side

          SideBySidebottom · 23/07/2015 at 22:59

          Your strategy of one trade is safer than downgrading and burning an extra trade, I'm thinking Brown to Kelly sounds good,

    Derek · 22/07/2015 at 23:56

    Out of that bunch, Kelly by a mile.

Zeesus · 23/07/2015 at 00:58

Lek – would really appreciate your advice. My team is at full premo and very happy. 5 trades left but not much in the bank. I don’t have GAJ though.. My only really option would be beams and KK to Ablett and Kelly if I pulled the trigger. KK seems to be priced quite high at the moment. Stay put or go for it?

    Tyler · 23/07/2015 at 07:27

    I think those would be reasonablde trades if beams gets subbed/rested

Mac · 23/07/2015 at 07:15

I hope Beams' shoulder stays good. Don't want to trade him, he's been performing extremely well

C-Train · 23/07/2015 at 09:37

Hi, I’ve got 7 trades left but am stuck with what to do. I was planning on trading out Krak this week and bringing in Goldy (for Maric). Then next week trading out Selwood & Lever for a rookie & Gaz. However due to both posting massive numbers last week, its going to be very tight $$$ wise next to be able to afford Gaz. So should I trade in Gaz instead this week and wait/see on Goldy or vice versa. Teams at full premium already (only stain is Smith at D6 – but am willing to risk him)

    randomcliche · 23/07/2015 at 11:23

    Maric will get pumped this week by Sandi imo. But crows suns pies dons seems pretty good finals match ups (except for sauce). Consider holding if league wins is the focus because ablett is certainly the highest priority.

@KrazeeEyezK1lla · 23/07/2015 at 10:16

Is Beams to GAJ the way to go, all things considered?

For those like me who wanna get GAJ in but dont wanna blow 2 trades to do it, this could be an easy 1 trade fix to get him in. Yes Beams is a gun and has been killing it, but if his shoulder is buggered, you've gotta think his output may decrease? less tackling, etc.?

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 23/07/2015 at 10:35

    Might b the best solution for u if u really want gaz and don’t want to be stuck with one trade

      @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 23/07/2015 at 10:46

      this game was so much easier when Gaz wasn't playing

        PDAP · 23/07/2015 at 14:20

        The game isso much easier when Gaz is playing.

          I N Pieman · 23/07/2015 at 15:29

          I Agree PDAP. He's the Supercoach God himself. Kick anyone to the curb & stick the c on him.

            SideBySidebottom · 23/07/2015 at 21:49

            I don't think this game's easy with anyone in particular playing or not playing.

luke · 23/07/2015 at 10:33

Torn on this decision. I want Goddard in my team, but it would be either Franklin or Mitchell to go. At this stage, I have gone Franklin, but his finals draw looks very very favourable with GWS, St Kilda and Gold Coast. Already have JPK and Parker in the midfield, is it time to say goodbye to tmitch?
Or the very inconsistent/massive ceiling buddy with easy finals draw

    randomcliche · 23/07/2015 at 11:26

    I’ve got the nearly same question fan klip to Bartel…would value your thoughts community.

      randomcliche · 23/07/2015 at 11:27

      Fan klip aka Franklin thanks auto correct.

        jimmy · 23/07/2015 at 13:19

        Same boat, can bring in Ablett via swing for either Buddy, TMitch or Gunston.
        TMitch worries me with tagging role & question mark on whether he could be dropped?
        buddy and his lack of form.
        gunston was brought for F7 but he is consistent but Hawks share points around.

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 23/07/2015 at 11:32

    love buddy but also thought about trading him. tippett breaking his hand may hurt bud up forward which could limit his scoring. playing againt WC this week and not sure who they're gonna stick on him, so who knows, he could go big. finals draw has to be taken into consideration

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 23/07/2015 at 13:04

      I think Tippett out should help bud as he has been useless (tip). Bud will either have Reid (more mobile) so allow buddy to roam or a mid pushing forward to feed him the ball. Agree with wc back line woes he may get off the leash this weekend.

    Danners · 23/07/2015 at 15:07

    Franklin, only if you have a full premo team without injuries and about 5+ trades left. Just because they are playing a weak team doesn't he will go good

      luke · 23/07/2015 at 17:28

      Full premo with bont on the bench. 5 trades left… So that means I should do it? Can't make up my mind

        Danners · 24/07/2015 at 15:43

        You don't really do it if you have Bont on the bench unless you are in the top 1000, if so do it

Locked and Loaded · 23/07/2015 at 10:43

Have the opportunity to get Gaz but can only trade him for Wines. Is this a good or potentially bad move? Wines isn't exactly a bad SC player to be moving on but how important is it to get Gaz in?

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 23/07/2015 at 10:58

    I reckon it would depend on how many trades you've got and what the rest of your team is like. You'd take Gaz over Wines 99/100 though

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 23/07/2015 at 13:06

    Wines is my m8 but I have gaz. Must have cracking mids if thinking upgrading wines.

Ben · 23/07/2015 at 11:27

Need help community.

Cripps to Zorko or Deledio

    Danners · 23/07/2015 at 15:06

    Deledio if you can, more reliable

    Ethan · 23/07/2015 at 17:53

    Deledio if you believe his Achilles will hold out

murray · 23/07/2015 at 11:51

Hi community
I only have 4 trades left and have brown as D6,however his scoring has been substandard for a D6 and feel he needs to be moved on.

Option A is to look at some players who will play every game from here like hurn 366k, savage 364k, Kelly 344k or Malceski 348k and these look to be the best options. All are coming off tons last round (except Malceski who had 94). I only have 383k to spend as I have 110k cash in bank. I know that they are only likely to ave 70-75 from here on.

Option B is to burn two trades now and downgrade him to a rookie and buy a super premo like rance Tmac picken or murphy

Option C is to do nothing at all this week and wait for the finals with 4 trades left

What do you think about these options, and Is there anyone else I could consider as a good semi premo defender if I went option A

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 23/07/2015 at 12:03

    If you think you'll get a 90 or so average for the rest of the year from a Mal/Kelly/Savage type, then go for that and just use the one trade.

    Ethan · 23/07/2015 at 17:54

    i think its good to go premo but not now, maybe in a few weeks before finals

    SideBySidebottom · 23/07/2015 at 21:58

    TMac, Picken and Murphy are Johnny come latelys. They do not have consistent enough records to be considered "super premos".

Francis · 23/07/2015 at 13:08

Want GAJ – Who to trade out for him, Boak or Wines?

    PDAP · 23/07/2015 at 14:17

    That is a tough one. I heard Wines was slightly injured last week therefore keep the captain.

    Danners · 23/07/2015 at 15:06

    Wines, less reliable

    Ethan · 23/07/2015 at 17:55

    Wines to cop less attention but is carrying a slight injury

    SideBySidebottom · 23/07/2015 at 22:00

    Happy customer here.

Brook · 23/07/2015 at 14:02

will most likely be trading griffen to GAJ, mckernan to rookie (fwd, fwd/mid or ruck)

leaves me 3 trades and no ruck cover but if i wait it will be at least R20 until i get GAJ.

worth the gamble?

    PDAP · 23/07/2015 at 14:16

    Get Gaz ASAP? Save a trade if one of your rucks go down.

    derek · 23/07/2015 at 15:20

    yeah. Rucks have been pretty reliable this year.

      SideBySidebottom · 23/07/2015 at 22:02

      Can someone please tell me that Derek didn't just say that "Rucks have been pretty reliable this year".

Rawkus11 · 23/07/2015 at 14:23

Got 8 trades left with one premo spot to be filled (D6). Want to build up some coin to trade Lever to hopefully anyone i like on the eve of finals.

Who has better js out of Fields/Leverde/Knight/Harmes/J Kolo?

Gonna bring it 2

    Dean · 23/07/2015 at 15:04

    Fields mate

    RatRacer · 23/07/2015 at 15:06

    I think Laverde should have the best JS. Bombers have definitely started looking to 2016 in their team selections. If there is any club that needs to keep getting games into their rookies it is Essendon. Not sure who has the best scoring potential for generating cash though.

Danners · 23/07/2015 at 15:03

Great stuff Lek! I am going insane this week and wielding the axe on Goldstein! This is so that I will have a robust team without too many risky picks.
Trades will be
Goldstein-Knight (swing Gawn)
Next week
B.Smith-Yeo or someone around that range
Steele-Dusty or someone around that range
Leaves me with 2 trades and around $40k left
Thoughts community?

    derek · 23/07/2015 at 15:22

    clearly the pressure of Supercoach has gotten to you!

    kofi · 23/07/2015 at 15:29

    Why would you get rid of goldy he is still set to make you another $40,000 with a BE of 60 it’s a risky move Gawn is to inconsistent

    McGovern to Goddard
    And upgrade someone else picken will eventually be tagged

    Get in Ablett

    RatRacer · 23/07/2015 at 15:35

    Insane is right…..or a masterstroke….I'm not sure which. One thing is for sure, you have cast iron cahones.
    I'm a bit concerned at Picken as a safe "non risky" choice. He is on a good streak of form and has posted some great scores, no doubt about that. But up until this year his best season average is barely over 70. That worries me.

    randomcliche · 23/07/2015 at 15:54

    Dangers I reckon there is value in holding goldy 1 more week and value in other lines like Bartel goddard malceski that such shark maneuvers are not required this week. But next week…. #WishIhadgoldy….

      randomcliche · 23/07/2015 at 15:54

      *danners thanks auto correct

    Tofor · 24/07/2015 at 09:36

    Hey Danners…
    My condolences on the madness…
    Goldy is the best ruck in the game and a Brownlow smoky. Will average more than any ruck, possibly any player period for the rest of the season… and the roos have a soft run home.

Dean · 23/07/2015 at 15:25

I'm quite confused, I had it all worked out as I brought in Goddad last week & also Maynard into my midfield to give cover with DPP for Hodge & SAAD – and this week my play was to use 1 trade to go Krakouer to Bartel which is not a problem, however the problem I do have is Beams.
I am seriously concerned about Beams lasting the next few weeks with his shoulder issue.
Also the main concern is that I only have 3 trades left & $145,000 in the bank, so this week would be the only chance I could bring in GAJ and risk playing either Steel & Krakour in my forward line. I'm happy keeping Saad providing he starts playing soon.

My current team is:
Defence:- Shaw, Houli, Murphy, Hodge, Simpson. Lever (Saad, A Pearce)
Midfield:- Fyfe, Pendles, Mundy, Beams, Priddis, Dangerfield, JPK, Parker (Stretch, Lambert, Maynard)
Ruck:- Goldy, Blicavs (Read)
Forward:- Gray, Martin, Dahlhaus, Swan, Goddard, Krakouer (Steele, Dale)

Option 1
Krakour to Bartel

Option 2
Beams to GAJ

Thanks in advance all.

    Ethan · 23/07/2015 at 17:57

    only cause if beams goes down, you still have an up down trade to get him to beams

THEBEARD · 23/07/2015 at 15:29

So lads as D6 would you play Goddard, Edwards or Maynard.

I want to take Kelly-Malckeski though I either do that and wait for Ablett for 2 weks or I bite the bullet take Gaz and run with one of them as D6 with the other 2 on the bench. My view is Gaz is worth the extra 20ish I'd get out of Kely/Malckeski over Goddard/Maynard etc.

Other question is do I trade out Wines or Parker for Gaz? Leaning towards Wines.

    Ethan · 23/07/2015 at 17:57

    Wines if you want gaz

Mac · 23/07/2015 at 15:47

Goddard or Bartel

    Luviboy1 · 23/07/2015 at 16:08

    Both have hit rock bottom prices. Flip of a coin, but Id go Bartel.

RatRacer · 23/07/2015 at 15:51

Losing patience with Selwood. Now there is talk of more time up forward.

I hate trading out premos if they are playing….. but I have a feeling in my gut that Sidebottom is getting ready to explode.

I've expended my 2 trades this week to get Gaz. After this week I have no cash and 6 trades.

Worth painting the fence next week to trade out Selwood and get Sidebottom?

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 24/07/2015 at 11:28

    you've got a good amount of trades left, so roll the dice

Luviboy1 · 23/07/2015 at 16:10

For those of us with Dayne Beams, what are we doing? I'm considering trading him to Gaz after reading this article:

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 23/07/2015 at 16:43

    thinking the same thing

      derek · 23/07/2015 at 17:27

      he's doing ok for someone needing surgery

dinomike20 · 23/07/2015 at 16:22

One spot left in my forward line to be full premo, only have $476k to spend on it, I'm tossing up between Goddard and Bartel… thinking Bartel will be a point of difference… thoughts?

Rest of my fwd line is Martin, Gray, Bont, Deledio, Swan.

    dinomike20 · 23/07/2015 at 16:23

    Just saw Mac's same post above! Bartel it is!

beezneez · 23/07/2015 at 16:23

With only 4 trades left, is it worth trading Treloar or T.Adams to get Ablett this week., and if so, which one?
Steele is currently at M8 and will remain so with the Treloar trade. Steele will move to D6 for T. Adams (C. Daniel currently M6).
Either trade will follow J Lonie to H. Goddard to enable cash generation.
The other option is to wait a week because the prices of all players will still allow the trades to proceed. The beauty of waiting a week will allow further analysis of the performances and availability of H Goddard and Beams and Fyfe who are currently under injury clouds.Was intending to do a straight swap of Adams to Bartel so as to have someone actually playing but believe GAJ is a priority and I believe Adams can score similar to Bartel anyway. Any thoughts?

    Ethan · 23/07/2015 at 17:59

    there is so much wrong with this. So lets start off
    Steele cant play defence
    Daniel cant play midfield
    So im not sure what your plan is

      beezneez · 23/07/2015 at 18:22

      Sorry about that – what a doofus I am!
      Meant Steele will move to F6 (not D6) and Daniel is currently F6 (not m6).
      i.e H, Goddard is Def/Fwd – trade in for Lonie.
      trade Treloar to Ablett + Steele at M8 = C Daniel F6
      or trade T. Adams(currently F7/8 injured) to Ablett and swap with J Steele (now becomes F6) + C. Daniel F7/8

      Wife was talking to me while I was trying to write the post..

        @randomcliche · 23/07/2015 at 22:35

        Sounds to me like you are two short of full premo. M6 and F6. Suggest with 4 trades left you need to look towards your finals with some one up, one down manouvers. Bartel this week would be a good start. You might just have to let Ablett sail bud, but he does up the points scoring potential to any team that brings him in. If you have two of pendles, rocky, goldy then I suggest you just captain loophole the f out them to try and minimise the captain points lost against teams with him. If you have higgins in Def, consider bringing kelly in def swinging him fwd, if you can do a straight trade up to get a premo. (i.e. instead of one up/down combo. I wouldn't go less than 1 trade unless there are 3 rounds or less to go. See how ya go. (i.e. I think you can 40 points up F6 position more reliably than getting gaz imo.

          beezneez · 24/07/2015 at 14:41

          Thanks for that you make a lot of sense. my team is fairly strong except for that M8 position but am reasonably happy having Steele there for the time being as well as Adams at F6 until he had his brain fade. Probably need to look closely at possible injuries to Fyfe and Beams with regards to any Ablett trade. Some people are suggesting Fyfe could be a late out (apparently took his suit with him). I'm now thinking T. Adams to Bartel (had him round one) might be the way to go to achieve a league win. Bartel won't be any cheaper and the trade will net me some cash. Thanks once again for the input.

Youngy · 23/07/2015 at 16:25

Thoughts Community?

Boston to Knights

Smith to Tmac

Leaving me with 8 trades

    Liam · 23/07/2015 at 19:32


Pete · 23/07/2015 at 16:45


For my final forward spot, do I go a dahlaus, Goddard or bartel?

Thank you!

    derek · 23/07/2015 at 17:26

    15 out of the top 20 overall have both goddard and Dahlhaus. None have bartel (yet)

      SideBySidebottom · 23/07/2015 at 22:44

      Bartel in the forward line is like Ablett in the midfield and Golstein in ruck.

    @randomcliche · 23/07/2015 at 22:38

    I generally avoid the Dons where another reliable choice presents itself. I did however go Bartel to Goddard some time back and have no spare trades to reverse such situations. Others are both fine.

matthew · 23/07/2015 at 16:48

hi community thoughts on my trades for this week
lever to tmac
hamling to fields

this finishes my backline but means i am probably stuck with brodie smith for the rest of the year

    derek · 23/07/2015 at 17:32

    I've postedif that means you are stuck with BSmith…don't do it.

      derek · 23/07/2015 at 17:33

      if that means you are stuck with BSmith…don't do it.

Tulendeena · 23/07/2015 at 16:50

If Saad isn't names, who under 460k should I get?

Malceski worth looking at after 2 90's?

    Hazey1977 · 23/07/2015 at 17:50

    I bought him in last week with the hope he would go back to premo level and allow me to use the cash made to upgrade elsewhere!

      Eatemalive · 23/07/2015 at 18:38

      Kelly me thinks is a better option

    Luke · 23/07/2015 at 23:12

    Do you have tom McDonald?

Tyler · 23/07/2015 at 17:28

Is marc murphy a good option still or is it worth getting someone else around 550k

    Ethan · 23/07/2015 at 18:00

    pod yes, but other players like cotchin will score more just for playing in a winning team

      SideBySidebottom · 23/07/2015 at 22:47

      Wouldn't touch the ducking Cotchin.

derek · 23/07/2015 at 17:31

$550k is a lot of coin for Murphy. I might consider him if he was $450k. Not for his price when you can get Rocky for less.

General Soreness · 23/07/2015 at 17:45

Its not real unless its delivered with a BOWLER!

…..nice vid Lek, star……

…..need a Bowler…..

Hazey1977 · 23/07/2015 at 17:50

McKernan to H.Goddard and Selwood/Lewis to Ablett


Hamling to H Goddard and Wines to Ablett?

Hearing Wines has an injury cloud? Selwood has been stiffing me all season though!

Mac · 23/07/2015 at 18:50

Apparenlty Fyfe may not play due to the cork he received from Sam Mitchell. If anyone sees Mitchell around, kick his ass for me.

    Derek · 23/07/2015 at 19:48

    Sammy is in my team, but he’s making way for Gaz this week

      Donavan · 23/07/2015 at 22:39

      Believe Ted Richards tried to kick Sammy's ass last week, and look where that got him.

      Also Fyfe needs a week off from a cork he received 2 weeks ago???? code for rested by Ross

        @randomcliche · 23/07/2015 at 22:41

        Please, for the love of Gary's father, no.

Mac · 23/07/2015 at 18:57

Do I trade Mckernan so I can get Bartel or do I trade Maric becuase he is losing points due to Hampson. I was hoping Mckernan would get dropped to make my choice easier but it isn't to be.

    @randomcliche · 23/07/2015 at 22:44

    Maric has a reasonable finals run…Bartel is premium goodness…depends who you could/would replace Maric with…Gawn?

Jeff · 23/07/2015 at 19:48

Do I trade out Selwood or Sloane for Gaz?

    Derek · 23/07/2015 at 19:49

    Who else do you have

    Tyler · 23/07/2015 at 20:23

    Out of those two I would kick selwood out. Sloanes back in and apparently he's raring to go

Andy · 23/07/2015 at 19:54

Hey community,

If I have the VC on Gaz and C on Goldy would I be able to use a Richmond player (Ellis) as a loophole if Gaz goes big again? Can I change my captain during games if the captain has not played.

Thank you.

    Derek · 23/07/2015 at 20:05

    you can change C & VC after the weekend games have started.

    If you like what Gaz does, you put C on a no player and you get Gaz as cap. Have to do this before the start of Richmond game

    If you don’t like Gaz score, you leave C on Goldy

      Andy · 23/07/2015 at 20:22

      Thanks mate

        @randomcliche · 23/07/2015 at 22:48

        I'm a big fan of setting the VC loophole up and reversing it only after not seeing what want from Gaz. i.e. putting the C on Goldy only once Gazza has broken his shoulder…how did I just type that last bit….*shudders*

tom · 23/07/2015 at 20:15

smith to malceski or kelly? leaves me 2 trades

    @randomcliche · 23/07/2015 at 22:50

    If you have full premo+1 yeah….if you in the hunt overall yeah….if you like the gamble, odds on this will gain you points yeah….then ride lady luck on injury horse home.

Tyler · 23/07/2015 at 20:21

Also should I trade out Brodie Smith, keep lever as d6, and trade in gaff or shaw? Or should I wait a week for lever to go up, trade him out and get someone like armitage?

Carter · 23/07/2015 at 21:41

Hi community

Lever to J Kolodjashnij
Wines to Ablett

6 trades left, can upgrade my D6 to premium next week with 2 more trades. Leaving me 2 for finals, full premo.

Do this or fix up my D6 this week, keep Wines instead of Gary, leaving me 4 trades.

percyp · 23/07/2015 at 22:09

In Gaz out Boak Treloar or Heppell? Any thoughts?

    percyp · 23/07/2015 at 22:10

    Or fyfe? Others require 2 trades.. 5left

@randomcliche · 23/07/2015 at 22:53

Fyfe might be the shark move of round….but I'll reckon he'll come good. #Fyfeislife….Why you make Lekdog angry anyway? 🙂

Jambo · 23/07/2015 at 23:02

Since many are trading Smith for Malceski, Murphy's Law points to Brodie Smith going large and Malceski getting injured or scoring poorly. I reckon hold Smith, for that reason solely.

Nicholas · 23/07/2015 at 23:44

Hamling to malceski gets me full premo or wait a few weeks and get a better defender when lever fattens up

    Nicholas · 23/07/2015 at 23:46

    Or use 2 trades to get garry and probs not be able to fill last defender and have lever hold that spot

    Nicholas · 23/07/2015 at 23:50

    And if i brought in ablet eho to get rid of wines or lewis

Nicholas · 24/07/2015 at 00:04

Knight or kolad and pls help with my post above

Nicholas · 24/07/2015 at 00:43

Is it worth using 2 trades for ablet leaving me with 1 and a non premo defender which is lever on field or is it worth going with hamling to malceski leaving me with 2 . I have 130k right now so probs wont be able to get the defender and ablett. If i go with ablet who do i chop wines or lewis

    Nicholas · 24/07/2015 at 00:57

    I can go with tom fields who wasnt named this week and get both options done over the next 2 weeks and end up with malceski and ablett thoughts?

      @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 24/07/2015 at 09:19

      I personally wouldn't be keen on leaving myself with 1 trade with Lever on the field

        Nicholas · 24/07/2015 at 12:02

        What about the option wherei brong fields and malceski in and ablett but 0 trades

    Dean · 24/07/2015 at 18:56

    Pis$ off Lewis get GAJ because having GAJ in your side will make up the score difference for Lever if he has a poor game.

      randomcliche · 26/07/2015 at 18:09

      Hello hindsight oh get me some glasses….this supercoach caper is stuffed. You were right ex ante. Ex post… omg

Dann · 24/07/2015 at 06:16

My defensive dilemma

I have Mcgoven and my genuine cover is/was Saad but he's out again this week so Maynard or Edwards is on field currently, I'm really not sure what to do with only 3 trades left, Saad is my bench swing with Maynard so in a perfect world I'd prefer to keep him but McGoven has dropped to 335k so is hard to replace at that price,
Should I just hold?
Or go to a J Kelly or Malcheski straight swap for Mcgoven,
or trade out Saad and bring in Hurley or empty the bank completely and go to Murphy, Simpson, Houli, McDonald, Gibson.

Leaning towards Holding for a week, or J Kelly straight swap.

    Dean · 24/07/2015 at 18:51

    HOld your trades mate, only trade if your going to bring in elite premo's and let's face it this year defence has been extremely volatile.
    In fact I would go as far as to say there are only TWO genuine defenders that qualify for the "Elite Premo" status and that's obviously SHAW & HODGE.

    I am keeping Saad as my D6 and playing Lever this week as I only have 3 trades left, but I will have to trade Krakouer out and bring Bartel in, which will only leave me with 2 trades, so I need a ton of luck to say the least.

    Good luck mate

tom · 24/07/2015 at 08:47

malceski or kelly?

@KrazeeEyezK1lla · 24/07/2015 at 09:26

May be getting too crafty, but what do we think about trading Fyfe out this week(with his big BE and corky) to GAJ, and then in the next week or so getting Fyfe back in at around 540k?

    Bart · 24/07/2015 at 10:41

    Not the worst idea if you have enough trades to see you through the finals.

Dilemmmmmmaaaaaaa · 24/07/2015 at 10:50

One last forward spot to fill for complete team. Would take Lids in heart beat but don't have the $$ So was going a steady Bartel, Dusty or Floggard. Then looking at teams run home, Hawks look great so Cyril and Roughy jump out but then looked at Gawn, rucks he plays on the run home look fairly easy, Saints, Pies, North, Then finals are Doggies, Blues, Freo and GWS. So only the North and Freo game look tough for him, plus provides a nice backup in case Nic Nat gets a rest before finals. Looking for advice, should I go with a steady Bartel or Floggard? Run the Gauntlet with Gawn or Roughy?

    Dann · 24/07/2015 at 11:31


    SideBySidebottom · 24/07/2015 at 11:44

    I have Gawn and if it wasn't for the ruck cover he provides I'd be trading to Bartel. I'm seriously considering Franklin to Bartel. In your position it would be Bartel over the others.

Liam · 24/07/2015 at 11:03

Need your help community
Fyfe or Beams to Gaz??

    SideBySidebottom · 24/07/2015 at 11:46

    Beams in under an injury cloud and would be the logical candidate.

      beezneez · 24/07/2015 at 14:46

      So is Fyfe.

        SideBySidebottom · 24/07/2015 at 14:51

        Fyfe's is a corky. Beams has a shoulder injury that will probably require surgery.

nathan · 24/07/2015 at 11:11

Gday guys

Missed out on doing my trades last week

Which means i missed out on ablett

Is it worth getting him in now by tradeing wines or waiting till supercoach finals?

    Wattsieesq · 24/07/2015 at 13:11

    I'd trade Wines to him.

THEBEARD · 24/07/2015 at 11:38

Ok lads –

Kelly, Hooker, Malckeski? Anyone else sub 427k?

    DangertoGeelong · 24/07/2015 at 12:03

    Malceski imo. Suns look more competitive now. Proven premo.

      THEBEARD · 24/07/2015 at 12:33

      Took him in one squad. The other I run I have taken Hooker lol.

Cliffy · 24/07/2015 at 12:09

Hi guys, need your wisdoms for a big dilemma I have.

Want to badly get Gaz into my side but it will come with the cost of having to trade out a Premo in my Midfield to get there, but there’s also one more Defensive spot I have to upgrade (in Lever) to be full Premo in all my team’s lines.

Team currently is:

Defense: Shaw, Hodge, Ibbotson, Newnes, Houli, Lever (Maynard, Hamling)

Midfield: Fyfe, Pendlebury, Gray, Beams, Wines, Selwood, JPK, Hannebery (Amon, McKenzie, Steele)

Ruck: Goldstein, Maric (McKernan)

Forward: Martin, Dahlhaus, Goddard, Ziebell, Franklin, Swan (Lambert, Read)

What’s the bigger priority this week community? Get Gaz in or fix up my Defense, but most likely miss Gaz for good then because of his climbing price?

    @Seekersupacoach · 24/07/2015 at 12:38

    I'm in a similar position Cliffy with only 3 trades left (due to injury and stupidity). Do I use two trades to go full premo and not have Gaz in my team at all, or do I get Gaz in with same two trades and likely be a premo short in my back line at the of the year

      Cliffy · 24/07/2015 at 12:47

      I feel you mate, I've only got 5 trades left (some of my trades too regrettable) 🙁

    Wattsieesq · 24/07/2015 at 12:52

    The difference between lever, who averages about 65 and a premo defender like say Murphy is about 20 to 25 points. The difference between gaz and his 5 round average of 134 and either wines(5rd avg 96) , beams (5rd avg 115), or fyfe (5 rd avg 110) range from 20 to 40 point difference. While the goal is to get to full premo, I'd get Gaz in for Wines. While Gaz could get injured/suspended/abducted by aliens, the likelihood of him being cheaper is slim.

    derek · 24/07/2015 at 13:12

    keep an eye on Beams. Word is that he might not make the end of the season.

    I would swing Gray to fwd and Ziebell to mids and try and up grade Ziebell to GAZ. You might have to get rid of mcKernan to get the cash

    derek · 24/07/2015 at 13:14

    I would also switch maynard and McKenzie (so you still have Def/Mid swing set), but then get rid of McKenzie to J Kolo if you need cash.

      Cliffy · 24/07/2015 at 15:33

      Just should mention that I was planning on getting in Bob Murphy for Lever if I wasn't getting Gaz in this week.

        Cliffy · 24/07/2015 at 15:39

        But yes derek, I'm well aware about Beams and keeping a firm eye on him this week in the late mail to come.

DangertoGeelong · 24/07/2015 at 12:11

Aight fellas, I need advice on my next move. I have 136k in bank & 14 trades. Who am I trading next?

H Shaw, Houli, Newnes, Hibberd, Simpson, Saad, K mcintosh, N brown

fyfe, beams, JPK, heppell, s mitchell, selwood, cripps, sidebottom, boston, amon, j anderson

goldstein, s martin

R Gray, D martin, dahlhaus, swan, hogan, j steele, c daniel, t lamb

Cheers team,

    Wattsieesq · 24/07/2015 at 12:54

    Paint the fence and get Gaz in for Cripps

      DangertoGeelong · 24/07/2015 at 13:00

      What are you thoughts on Saad? Worth holding?

        Wattsieesq · 24/07/2015 at 13:11

        I got rid of Saad a few weeks ago. He's not going to make you much more money. Unless you are going to keep him as a D6, I'd get rid of him.

    derek · 24/07/2015 at 13:09

    you need to start trading your ass off. get going, what have you been waiting for?

    derek · 24/07/2015 at 13:09

    this looks like a team I had 10 rounds ago!

    drzoidberg1978 · 24/07/2015 at 13:12

    You need to get trading! I figure you have enough to go Saad to Houli/McDonald and Hogan to Bartel this week. That completes the backline. McIntosh down, Steele up the following week/s completes the forward line. Boston and Cripps combined will get you to Pendles/Rocky or possibly Gaz in a couple of weeks.

Oliver · 24/07/2015 at 13:22

7 trades left 40k in the bank, should I downgrade one of my rookies like Hamling or boston and upgrade B Smith to someone like Houli, McDonald etc or just hold off? Currently sitting a game clear on top of my ladder with a higher percentage and should win this week, so the trade would be to bolster my squad come finals.

    derek · 24/07/2015 at 14:00

    bang bang
