Patch’s Panic Room – Round 17

Published by Patch on

Patch - Supercoach Panic Room Master

My goodness community, I don’t remember it being this cold when I left! Snow in Queensland? The world really has gone mad.

What was almost as mad was that Crouching Tiger’s boot camp kicked my team into gear while I was gone, as I racked up over 5000 points in two rounds. Although, of course now I’m back in the country I will plummet back to mediocrity, my captaincy choices will flop and all my premiums will falter. If you also own Wines, Picken, Dahlhaus, or any other player from my side, I am so sorry.

But enough about this, on with the show!


There wasn’t a huge amount of calamity in the news this week, which means the Supercoach gods are saving them all for late outs over the weekend.

Rumours are floating around about Nat Fyfe and Dayne Beams under an injury cloud, and I’ve heard Beams won’t last a month with his shoulder. Fyfe will likely sit out one of the next two weeks as Ross the Boss is want to do, but Beams is another matter. Do you bite the bullet early and swap him for Gary Ablett? Do you hold a few more weeks? I’ve had a lot of luck from holding Beams so far – a quick shout-out to all those who traded him in round 3 – and will do so this week and reassess. Plans might change before lockout but this is where I’m sitting.

The Spud of 2015, Joel Selwood is back for Geelong, and will be back on the field in your side serving you up a 90. What a champ. Rory Sloane has also made a quick comeback from injury, so if you’ve got him be excited.

Popular downgrade option Tom Fields has disappeared from Carlton’s line up this week, as has Nathan Krakouer from Port’s. Krakouer seems to have done a hammy in the dying seconds (possibly even the last kick) of the showdown, and will miss two weeks, while Fields has been dropped.

Harley Bennel is back following his suspension, and last week it appears the reanimation department up on the Gold Coast brought Josh Glenn back to life, which is great news for Dead Equality Rights everywhere. Rimmer would be proud.

Anyone with Jamie MacMillan in their backlines will need to move him on, as he has done a hamstring injury, and anyone with swingman Jeremy McGovern will need to trade after he is out of the side with a nasty hamstring injury. Likewise, Travis Cloke is gone and Isaac Heeney is back for anyone who suddenly decided to check their team for the first time since round 6 and was after some good news.


I’m going to talk about trades. At this time of the year, they are running dangerously, dangerously low. In years past would always say you need 4 trades for finals. But in years past we didn’t have 15 trade-worthy injuries by round 13. In years past we didn’t have as many premiums underperforming as we do now. So some people have as few as two.

For what it’s worth, I still think four trades for finals is where it needs to be. I have four left and unless injury strikes, I won’t be using them. If you need a second wind to make finals, then you might have your hand pushed. But conserve them. As said by the great philosopher Homer, “A trade is like a beer. They smell good, they look good and you’d step over your own mother to get one.”


Breakevens are rapidly losing their relevance, but those last few trades might want to take into account price rises and drops, so Eddie and Dan will continue their show!’

Eddie Murphy’s

-47 – J. Kolodjashnij
-23 – T. Nankervis
-17 – K. Lambert
-16 – B. Maynard
-6 – S. Edwards
74 – G. Ablett

Dan Akyroyd’s

174 – N. Fyfe
147 – D. Martin
147 – L. Parker
141 – L. Montagna
140 – D. Heppell

The rookie rumble is well and truly over now, so that brings the Panic Room to a close for another week. It’s good – if cold – to be back, so best of luck to you all this weekend, community!



L.Gibbs · 24/07/2015 at 13:35

Do I go hamling to Tom fields so I can get laird, or Hamling to jake kolo and get Rory laird in?

    MC · 24/07/2015 at 14:38

    J Kolo because he is playing

Mike · 24/07/2015 at 13:38

Who to trade out for ablett? The Bont who is unreliable but posted two good scores lately or Tom Mitchell who seems to have been given the run with role at Sydney and it has affected his output somewhat?

    Danners · 24/07/2015 at 15:49

    Bont, if you have the trades

    Dean · 24/07/2015 at 19:02

    If you have Beams I suggest trading Beams out for GAJ due to his shoulder injury.

Matt · 24/07/2015 at 13:39

Trade out hamling or lambert to get GAJ in?

    steve · 24/07/2015 at 14:20


    lethal · 24/07/2015 at 14:26

    Hamling for sure

    Danners · 24/07/2015 at 15:45

    Hamling isn't playing so it should be simple

Mitch · 24/07/2015 at 13:44

Need some help community

My team is

shaw kk newnes hodge murphy smith hamling edwards

fyfe pendles selwood beams parker jpk rockliff ablett o’brien mckenzie lambert

goldy maric cox

gray d.martin swan goddard dahlhause s.edwards steele daniel

5 trades and 88k in the bank. going for overall rank

should i..

1. smith out for malceski/kelly

2. downgrade rookie/upgrade smith

3. downgrade rookie upgrade hamling to malceski/kelly

4. upgrade smith to malceski/kelly and sideways edwards to bartel

or any other ideas anyone has

Cheers community xx

    Danners · 24/07/2015 at 15:48

    1, you might need the trades later

    Dean · 24/07/2015 at 19:23

    Going Smith to Kelly or Malceski is a sideways trade in my opinion. .

    Trade either Hamling or McKenzie for Knight, Harmes, Goddad or Kolodjashnij and then trade Smith to the best defender you can afford .

    However it is worth noting that its highly likely that Beams will not be playing every game or he might hurt his shoulder more and not play this year.

      Swans2012 · 25/07/2015 at 09:26

      Yep hold a week or two to see what the go is with beams, might be able to make some $$$ if you have to trade him

@KrazeeEyezK1lla · 24/07/2015 at 13:51

Thinking I'll try and get ahead and go from Beams to GAJ this week. You've gotta think that with a bung shoulder he may not be tackling anywhere near as much. May also have an impact on his contested possies

    I N Pieman · 24/07/2015 at 14:28

    I like that move Krazee. Good logic

    Liam · 24/07/2015 at 15:43

    I'm making the same move this week.
    I just need GAJ

    Danners · 24/07/2015 at 15:44

    If you have trades, it would be a wise move

      @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 24/07/2015 at 15:54

      I have 3 trades. What I was planning to do was use 2 trades to get GAJ, which I really didn't want to do, so now I can just use the 1

        afro dizy akk · 24/07/2015 at 19:19

        LOL- you think GAJ is going to play all the remaining games??????? what are you going to do to cover the 2-3 games he will miss in the next 7 weeks?

    Swans2012 · 25/07/2015 at 09:30

    Wait on the beams injury, been sore for a month or so now and has been going ok, just as likely he could bang out a 140 and gaj injures himself. Unless he starts banging 50’s out or gets surgery hold…. Just my opinion just scared of bringing in someone before I have to with all the injuries about this year….

Luke · 24/07/2015 at 14:21

best rookie option purely on job security, apart from goddard
heard jayden lavered should be getting a fair bit mor game time

    Rawkus11 · 24/07/2015 at 15:34

    Yeah Laverde then R. Knight

Kevin · 24/07/2015 at 14:43

Need help completing my team to full premo

$287,700 in the bank
My team
D – H.Shaw, Houli, Hodge, Newnes, Ibbotson, Gibson (Colquhoun, A.Saad)
M – Fyfe, Pendles, Wines, Heppell, Griffen, Rockliff, Ablett, Lambert (Ellis-Yolmen, McKenzie, Maynard)
R – Goldstein, Maric (Cox)
F – Gray, D.Martin, Swan, T.Mitchell, McKernan, Steele (Tarrant, Daniel)

Trading out R.Tarrant and Ellis Yolmen for R.Knight and undecided on Dangerfield, Deledio, Bartel.
Any other suggestions would be helpful, Cheers 🙂

    Danners · 24/07/2015 at 15:44

    R.Knight and Priddis, save yourself $50k for someone that is just as good as Dangerfield

    derek · 24/07/2015 at 17:50

    this looks like my team 10 rounds ago. I expect you have a lot of trades left!

      derek · 24/07/2015 at 18:00

      If you Trade out Saad >> Selwood (via Maynard), and Tarrent >> Bartel….you should have $500 left… I right?

    4rm · 24/07/2015 at 22:07

    I like Lids, gives extra flexibility and he s been Awsome .

Mac · 24/07/2015 at 15:25

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. Can fix Beams/Maric next week if Beams' shoulder gets stuffed and if Maric keeps scoring low due to Hampson


    Danners · 24/07/2015 at 15:47

    Getting rid of McKernan and Lonie sounds good

      derek · 24/07/2015 at 17:43

      sounds good.

      instead of getting Payne (you already have plenty of Mid/Fwd DPP, get a Mid/Def DPP player (via lambert) so you can swing Hodge & Newness into the midfield if you need to.

        Mac · 24/07/2015 at 18:09

        Adamson? WCE also have a few Sunday games good for Loophole?

Rawkus11 · 24/07/2015 at 15:31

Hi community, thought i'd post my team to see what you guys thought.

I have 8 trades left and 48k in the bank. Am currently sitting 402nd overall, 964pts behind the leader:

Def: Shaw, T-mac, Hodge, Newnes, Gibson, Lever (Pearce, McKenzie)
Mid: Fyfe, Pendles, Mundy, Beams, Danger, JPK, Ebert, Ablett (Steele, O'Brien, Lambert)
Ruc: Goldy, Martin (Lucey)
Fwd: Gray, Martin, Swan, Zorko, Goddard, Mitchell (Daniel, H.Goddard)

Anyone think i have a realistic chance at the overall? Or should i just concentrate on leagues (Top in both)
This is the best i've ever done, so bit of uncharted waters

Thanks a lot fellas!

    Danners · 24/07/2015 at 15:40

    You would have a realistic chance at getting higher in overall rankings by downgrading Steele and upgrading Lever to a Hurley

      Rawkus11 · 24/07/2015 at 16:01

      Thanks Danners! I like where ya heads at!!

      derek · 24/07/2015 at 17:28

      wait for Steele to increase a bit more, should be close to $300k next week.

        derek · 24/07/2015 at 17:36

        I would wait for Steele to increase in value, then paint the fence next week. When you do, make sure you swing Mckenzie into your mids so you have a DPP to swing Hodge & Newnes into the mids if needed. This will also give you a Non-plyer in your mids so you can use the loophole if needed.

        Steel >> Simpson/Rance/Houli (via Mckenzie swing to mids)
        Lever >> Rookie

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 24/07/2015 at 15:55

    8 trades left is a very good spot to be in, being ranked 402 overall. be bold and roll the dice!

    maybe look at somebody like Simpson for Lever? has shown he can go big

    derek · 24/07/2015 at 17:26

    There are still 7 rounds to go. You have 8 trades which I'm guess is a lot more than most of the people ahead of you. The top ranked people I'm guess would have traded fairly aggressively and won't want to many injuries or suspensions.

    I'm about the same as you, 459th. I have 9 trades left and I think the only way i'll have any chance is if there is a number of injuries to popular players (fyfe or beams etc), and that others managers won't have sufficient bench cover or have enough trades to fix up their teams.

    7 weeks a lot can happen!

      Rawkus11 · 24/07/2015 at 19:33

      Thanks Dez, I think i'm going to do a downgrade this week then paint the fence next week. That should still leave me with a bit of cash and 5 trades left with 5 to play.

      Cheers for the help guys, appreciate it!

      See you at the pointy end Derek!!

        Swans2012 · 25/07/2015 at 09:31

        Sounds good!!

panther · 24/07/2015 at 15:37

hello community who do i get out of

    Wattsieesq · 24/07/2015 at 16:36


    Youngy · 24/07/2015 at 17:42

    None if you can

BCHawks · 24/07/2015 at 15:45

Need some advice which of the 3 should I trade out for a premo Hamling, Pearce or Mckenzie?

    Tony · 24/07/2015 at 16:01

    The one worth the most coin ! Trades are thin

      Wattsieesq · 24/07/2015 at 16:37

      I have all three in my team and if it were me, I'd trade out hamling. Pearce is playing and I use McKenzie as my dpp swing in midfield.

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 24/07/2015 at 16:02

    McKenzie is the only one not playing, but if you need him for a swing set, he's handy. If they're all in defence, then maybe look at keeping Pearce considering he's the only one playing out of the 3 at the moment

@KrazeeEyezK1lla · 24/07/2015 at 16:03

and obviously Hamling isn't playing either. oops

Andy · 24/07/2015 at 16:10

need opinion please, I was about to trade the Bont to GAJ but now I see Beams might not last long.
So do I stick with the original plan and see how Beams goes or do I dump Beams for GAJ?
If I do the second I should have enough for Malceski as well wich means full premo defence but will kick myself if Beams is fine.

    Tyler · 24/07/2015 at 16:28

    'DAYNE Beams' injured right shoulder is hanging by a thread, with the star Brisbane Lions' midfielder believed to be contemplating surgery before season's end.'

    If you're low on trades I think it's safer to trade out beams

      Andy · 24/07/2015 at 16:32

      cheers bud. I have 7 trades left

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 24/07/2015 at 16:30

    You may kick yourself but you'll also have GAJ and a full premo team. Word is he's not fine at all

      Andy · 24/07/2015 at 16:44

      thanks mate

Ryan · 24/07/2015 at 16:19

With McKernan or Krakouer playing at F6. Who should I upgrade between the two to a premium like a Bartel or Goddard

    Andy · 24/07/2015 at 16:21

    Krakouer is out so him

Mac · 24/07/2015 at 16:22

Bartel or Goddard

    Wattsieesq · 24/07/2015 at 16:38


flash101 · 24/07/2015 at 16:46

anyone know the future of GC's Boston?

    Timmy · 25/07/2015 at 08:47

    Didn't do much in the NEAFL last weekend. Unlikely to force his way back in you'd think

wise old man · 24/07/2015 at 17:25

I've got both beams and fyfe and only have 2 trades left, I've only got $31,000 in the bank.
What do I do?

    JMG · 24/07/2015 at 17:33

    Hold fire for now and pray!!

    Patch · 24/07/2015 at 19:29

    Hold! Beams doesn't need to be moved at this stage, but will likely need to go in coming weeks. Don't make any rash decisions with two left!

      Swans2012 · 25/07/2015 at 09:32

      Agree trade when you need to, anything could happen with beams

JMG · 24/07/2015 at 17:32

Is it worth using 2 trades to get rid of McKernan (f7 and ruck backup) for Rocky (plus downgrade Hamling to a mid thru DPP).

This woukd enable me to put Ebert at M9 and loophole him against Griffen at M8.

Have 6 trades left. Other option is just trade Ebert for Rocky but I’m sure Ebert will pump out a ton once I do this.

    Patch · 24/07/2015 at 19:30

    If you're confident with your rucks then I'd go for it. Otherwise I'd upgrade Griffin ahead of Ebert if you have the cash.

michael · 24/07/2015 at 17:56

need help community got 600k in the bank to get a mid, who do i get?
my midfield is- Fyfe, Pendles, Mundy, Priddis, Heppell, Parker, Montagna

danny · 24/07/2015 at 18:12

Buddy (93), Goddard (96), Bont (97) or Gawn (114) for GAZ.

Help me choose please community. It must be one of these 4 to go

Thank you

    derek · 24/07/2015 at 18:15

    in order


    SideBySidebottom · 24/07/2015 at 18:22

    Bunt the Bont.

      @randomcliche · 25/07/2015 at 00:04

      Bont, then bud, then floggard, then Gawn (for Ruck cover).

SideBySidebottom · 24/07/2015 at 18:13

With six trades left and about $20k I had decided to trade Krakouer and Hamling to Knight and Kelly but Fyfe and Beams are making me nervous as I only have one mid bench cover. As Kelly plays before Fyfe and Beams I don't have the luxury of waiting so to avoid the fireworks I'll just have a Krakouer – Knight.

Ben · 24/07/2015 at 18:17

Need help completing my team to full premo
My team:
D – Picken, Boyd, Hodge, Mundy, Colquhoun, Clurey (Fields, Hamling)
M – Beams, Dangerfield, Swan, Parker, Ebert, Gray, Barlow, Rockliff (Krakour, Kavanagh)
R – Jacobs, Naitanui (Read, Griffin)
F – Martin, Goddard, Mitchell, Franklin, Kennedy, Mckernan (Redpath, Fantasia)

    Ben · 24/07/2015 at 18:18

    70k in the bank!!

    @randomcliche · 25/07/2015 at 00:10

    Mundy is mid….you should have 3 bench mids, one bench ruck, an ability to copy teams from supercoach not other sites or previous years 😛 All the best with dreamteam or whatever it is your are playing as I don't know the prices for that.

Ben · 24/07/2015 at 18:20

I'm thinking Beams > GAJ, (Ebert> sidebottom or jelwood, or Kennedy>Bartel)

luke · 24/07/2015 at 18:30

Nervous times. Only 5 trades left. Need a Hodge I think as I have Smith at d6. Defence is houli, Bob Murphy, Higgins, newnes, Ibbotson and Smith, with hamling and kolo. Would have to make 2 trades to get him in. Is it worth it? Or just use 1 trade and get James Kelly or nick malceski

Matt · 24/07/2015 at 18:35

Should I go Rich to Fyfe or Lever to Enright (they are the only two non-premos in my team)?

    Patch · 24/07/2015 at 19:33

    Rich to Fyfe, Matt.

      Matt · 24/07/2015 at 19:40

      Will he play this week though?

        Tyler · 25/07/2015 at 07:09

        We probably wont know until before the match when they announce any late outs

tom · 24/07/2015 at 19:12

tom rockliff or jimmy bartel?

    Matt · 24/07/2015 at 19:13


Who to bench? · 24/07/2015 at 19:24

One of Nat Fyfe, Dayne Beams or Jack Ziebell as M9 this round?
there are njury concerns over fyfe and beams this week

    SideBySidebottom · 24/07/2015 at 19:51

    Their three teams play on Saturday. Fremantle at 4:35pm and North play Brisbane at 7:20pm. you'll be able to make your decision then.

Gary · 24/07/2015 at 19:35

thoughts on higgins?

    SideBySidebottom · 24/07/2015 at 19:51


    @randomcliche · 25/07/2015 at 00:24

    Like. Better than Smith 🙂

Tyrone · 24/07/2015 at 19:35

Which two to play out of Selwood, Treloar or Swallow? Help would be greatly appreciated

    Liam · 24/07/2015 at 19:49

    treloar and jelwood

Daniel · 24/07/2015 at 19:36

Deledio or Bartel?

    Derek · 25/07/2015 at 13:21

    Bartel because he is a lot cheaper. Will score similar

Andrew · 24/07/2015 at 19:37

Kelly or Malceski??

    Derek · 25/07/2015 at 13:22

    Kelly. In a team playing for a finals position

Jambo · 24/07/2015 at 21:03

I picked Jordan Lewis as VC and I'm stoked so far. 90 SC points at half-time!

    Hazey · 24/07/2015 at 22:55

    Good work Jambo, finishing up with 150. I went Hodge myself.

    Do we take the 280 or back the little master GAJ to top it?

    280 in the bag is too good to turn up surely?

      Jambo · 24/07/2015 at 23:58

      Against Adelaide, I expect at least 150. Tough call. Could be a 50:50 either way.

        Derek · 25/07/2015 at 13:22

        Take it

          Jambo · 26/07/2015 at 08:52

          I stuck with Lewis’ 150 as my captain. About time Lewis performed aye?

      CrackersFC · 25/07/2015 at 13:42

      I’m taking my 280

Liam · 24/07/2015 at 22:34

Take hodgey's 132 or gaz captain

    Hazey · 24/07/2015 at 23:11

    I reckon I’m going to take it Liam. Upscaled to 140 too.

      Swans2012 · 25/07/2015 at 10:10

      Almost made him vc damit, I’d take it in a heartbeat

        Derek · 25/07/2015 at 13:23

        Take it

Derek · 24/07/2015 at 22:35

Really happy with Simpson’s score tonight.

brent · 24/07/2015 at 22:51

newnes or griffen on the field??

    Derek · 24/07/2015 at 23:02

    Saints play Sunday, can you loophole griffin?

    If you can’t, id go Griff

jimmy · 24/07/2015 at 23:01

Bringing in Gaz currently have Gray in mids so via swing trading out either Buddy or TMitch or even Goddard?

    Tyler · 25/07/2015 at 07:11

    Out of those I would trade titch out

      Swans2012 · 25/07/2015 at 09:33


    Derek · 25/07/2015 at 09:26

    Not a big fan of TMitch.

Mac · 25/07/2015 at 07:12

Mitchell, may be Sydney's new tagger

    jimmy · 25/07/2015 at 07:53

    Cheers guys, Longmire making TMitch tag does worry me but his scores haven’t been terrible but not great, could get dropped if Swans don’t improve?
    Buddy and the Swans attack is a concern as well.
    It’s a big call for a must win week.

      Swans2012 · 25/07/2015 at 09:34

      Won’t get dropped, past that stage of his career

        Swans2012 · 25/07/2015 at 09:35

        Oh and I think 90-100 is what we’ll get out of him (tmitch) from here. That’ll do me at f5-6-7 loophole

          jimmy · 25/07/2015 at 10:40

          Thanks Swans 2012, hopefully we can come away with the win tomorrow.
          I’m going with gut feeling (no real science behind it) & ditching Buddy. Will take consistency over a rollercoaster. Watch Buddy kick 8 now.
          But ditching Buddy means –
          Gaz can come in , Gunston will be F6 for rest of the yr ( has E on him until Buddy goes so will get his 165 after the trade)
          But if Buddy/Mitch stays either would be my F6 and would have to get a Ward, Priddis type & no Gaz.
          Basically have 7 forwards but not a finished mid field, got Gunston cheap as cover but need now a finished midfield ( 7 trades left)

            Swans2012 · 25/07/2015 at 12:49

            My brain screams no to the buddy trade, but if it’s the only solution I guess go for it, no other way you can get gaz? It’s a big plus being able to loophole a buddy/Gunston at f6. with 7 trades I’d prefer to see you burn three keep your forward cover and have 4 left (provided that finishes your team).

              Derek · 25/07/2015 at 13:25

              Buddy over TMitch every day of the week.

Pieman74 · 25/07/2015 at 08:28

I have 6 trades left and 87k in the bank. Need to move on McGovern from my fwd line. Is it worth trading him for Knight/Leverde and bank the cash or taking a risk and bringing in Tex Walker, Ryder or Papparone. My other option would be to swap Mc Govern and Steele via DPP and bring in another midfielder but don't know if there is any worth bringing in for under $420k. I was also thinking of trading Smith to Malcevski but already have Lever and Coloquon on the bench as coverage. I would appreciate any advice/feedback.

    Tyler · 25/07/2015 at 11:08

    Don't bother with Tex, Ryder etc. just downgrade to a rookie and bank the cash, then if someone gets injured or if you just want to upgrade someone to a prem you already have the cash

      Pieman74 · 25/07/2015 at 12:18

      Thanks Tyler. Should I make the upgrade now (I.e. Smith to Malcevski) or leave it to next week. Cheers

Mitch · 25/07/2015 at 08:39

Which defender with 517k to spend

Have shaw, newnes, kk, hodge, murphy already


    Luviboy1 · 25/07/2015 at 08:46

    Picken or Rance.

    Timmy · 25/07/2015 at 08:50

    Zac Dawson.

    Probably SImpson

    Derek · 25/07/2015 at 09:23

    Enright will have a big finish

      jimmy · 25/07/2015 at 10:41

      Enright with the Cats wanting to finish strong.

Luviboy1 · 25/07/2015 at 08:47

To whoever convinced me to trade in Gunston, thanks.

    Liam · 25/07/2015 at 09:19

    You're welcome, if only I decided to trade him in.

      Luviboy1 · 25/07/2015 at 11:51

      Hahaha, a classic case of not following your own advice.

Tony · 25/07/2015 at 09:27

Hi Guys. Trading Beams this week to either Danger or Hanners. I'm thinking Danger-what's your thoughts??

    Swans2012 · 25/07/2015 at 09:36

    Hold, unless he’s a late out

      Derek · 25/07/2015 at 13:26

      Beams is fine.

Caleb · 25/07/2015 at 10:24

Community, need help quick! Do I hold either Selwood or Swallow? One needs to go this week. Thanks.

    Swans2012 · 25/07/2015 at 10:27

    I’d hold sellwood, but your call….

      jimmy · 25/07/2015 at 10:42

      Selwood he’s due.

    Donavan · 25/07/2015 at 11:08

    Hold Selwood, needed the week off

      Derek · 25/07/2015 at 13:27

      Selwood is a dead set ultra premium gun!

James · 25/07/2015 at 10:39

Who has the the best JS out of Harmes, Kolo, or Knight?

    jimmy · 25/07/2015 at 10:42

    Harmes then Knight at a guess!

John · 25/07/2015 at 10:46

Tmac or malceski at d6?

    Tyler · 25/07/2015 at 11:09

    Is that even a question? Tmac!

    Luviboy1 · 25/07/2015 at 11:58

    Tmac has been playing forward, and Malceski does look to be back in form with Gazza back in. Eski for me.

    Derek · 25/07/2015 at 13:28

    Malceski is fresh and should finish season well. TMac is tired after a big season and I think will fade over the remaining games

tom · 25/07/2015 at 10:52

Bartel or Goddard?

    Tyler · 25/07/2015 at 11:09

    Bartel by a hair

      Derek · 25/07/2015 at 13:29

      Cats are still in hunt for finals, I’d back Vartel to step up. Bartel is fresh where Hodard and bombers had a tough hard year so far

Mac · 25/07/2015 at 10:53

Do I use my 2 trade now in trading Lonie and Mckernan for non-playing rookie for loophole and Bartel/Goddard or save a trade incase Beams is out?

    Luviboy1 · 25/07/2015 at 11:54

    Would definitely hold at least one trade for Beams tonight.

Donavan · 25/07/2015 at 11:15

No comment…..don't want to upset the SC gods.

My team scores so far in a must win match-up-

Gunston (165), Hodge (140 x 2), Lewis (150), Murphy (112), Simpson (98) – via loophole, Kreuzer (72)

Fingers crossed.

By the way, is Fyfe playing?

Skindog · 25/07/2015 at 11:30

Anyone have any news on Beams???

    Luviboy1 · 25/07/2015 at 11:53

    Watch the teams tonight like a hawk. I will be. If hes a late out hes turning into Priddis or Hanners.

    Derek · 25/07/2015 at 13:30

    He will be fine. A bit a media hype.

      Champ · 25/07/2015 at 20:48


tom · 25/07/2015 at 11:57

Do I use both my trades now so I can get Bartel, or do I just downgrade one and if Beams pulls out can trade him, if he doesn't I'll upgrade Mckernan to Goddard?

luke · 25/07/2015 at 12:48

Really regretting my reverse trade last night.
Used 2 of my remaining 5 trades to get Hodge in. Then read all the info about beams’ shoulder and fyfes corky and got nervous. Reverse traded and used one trade in bringing malceski in as d6/7.
Was feeling ok about it at 3/4 time last night, but I know it’s gonna bite me into he arse. Hopefully the extra trade saved will come in handy come finals.

luke · 25/07/2015 at 12:50

What’s the big late change for adelaide??

    luke · 25/07/2015 at 12:51

    Dont worry, all updated and it’s talia

Grant · 25/07/2015 at 12:56

Treloar or swallow? Help greatly appreciated community.

Mac · 25/07/2015 at 14:32

Ablett is injured

Tophawk · 25/07/2015 at 14:46

Ablett apears to be out of the game. Thank christ I did not trade him in.

    Swans2012 · 25/07/2015 at 14:49

    Yep vest on. At least I got last weeks 180 odd I guess, world of pain for those who traded him in this week

      Derek · 25/07/2015 at 15:01

      That was me. Agonised over trading out Sam Mitchell to Gaz.

Tyler · 25/07/2015 at 14:50

Ablett did something to his knee. Not good news! Some are saying he's hyper-extended it, some are saying he's done something more serious… Hate to think about it but looks like he will miss games

    Bluetackle · 25/07/2015 at 14:56

    Arghhhh!!! [email protected]$k sakes!!!!!

    Derek · 25/07/2015 at 15:00

    Subed at 1/4 time. 18sc

    Brought him in last night

      dannyyboyy · 25/07/2015 at 15:12

      so did i mate, so did i. i have 4 trades left with beams and ablett in my team. doh!

      Dean · 25/07/2015 at 16:03

      I'm glad i didn't mate, I was so close to going Beams to GAJ – Although its highly likely Beams will need to be replaced but hop not.

        Swans2012 · 25/07/2015 at 16:12

        Good to hear you didn’t, my three trades will be one in the next month by the time I chop gaz and beams(when required)….

Nicholas · 25/07/2015 at 14:57

Do i get rid of ablett or upgrade my last defender with my final trade?

    @randomcliche · 25/07/2015 at 15:59

    Can you do both? i.e. swing set + having premo mid bench cover? If not, a Premo mid – rookie mid will be greater than premo def – rookie def without seeing your team. If Ablett out for 4+ trade.

    Dean · 25/07/2015 at 16:00

    Just wait and more then likely you would fix your midfield and not worry about defence considering it looks like a 3 to 4 week injury. I doubt he will play this season.

Tyler · 25/07/2015 at 15:06

Update on Ablett:
Looks to be a torn meniscus. Means he will probably sit out 3-4 weeks

brent · 25/07/2015 at 15:52

can't believe i passed up hodge's VC score and went ablett captain… giving up on supercoach this year, too many injuries

    Poloko48 · 25/07/2015 at 16:28

    You passed on a 140? Wow, sorry but I would’ve taken that in a heartbeat.

      brent · 25/07/2015 at 20:53

      Well i forgot about it and i remembered at 2:09 and by then it was too late to change GAJ captain

Dean · 25/07/2015 at 15:56

I'm so glad I chose Krakour to Bartel I was so close to go Beams to GAJ what a relief.
This will turn the tables big time now regarding overall rank because many would have brought Gazza in and they will be low on trades.

I said from day 1 as soon as everyone jumped on GAJ 2 to 3 weeks ago that id like to see him have a minimum of 4 games scoring 130+ before even considering to jump on him because he was a player that never suffered serious injuries in the past until last year & once these serious injuries occur due to players compensating the way they play injuries happen more often then not.
Poor Gazza played his 3 games back allot better then I could ever envisage, I am so glad I followed my gut and waited to see him play minimum 4 games before jumping back on him, I doubt he will rush coming back this season even though it seems he has torn his meniscus I bet he wont play out this season.

Gazza hope these bloody injuries end soon for ya mate.

@randomcliche · 25/07/2015 at 16:01

Show of hands please, those who went Jelwood to Gaz who now need to do a contra trade…oh the swings of 2015!

    Swans2012 · 25/07/2015 at 16:19

    Yep there’d be a few out there!!

    Alex · 26/07/2015 at 14:39

    I dd the same, not happy

Swans2012 · 25/07/2015 at 16:22

Captain choice time,

Rockliff, Pendlebury or fyfe

    Swans2012 · 25/07/2015 at 16:23

    I’m leaning to rocky….just got a feeling

      Swans2012 · 25/07/2015 at 22:13

      Yep that must have been a bad feeling…. Rocky 46 as captain….there goes my season

    Youngy · 25/07/2015 at 17:29


Luke · 25/07/2015 at 16:32

Ablett gone = gold coast gone and malceski back to shitness i reckon.

Brett · 25/07/2015 at 16:53

What price we looking the great man to fall to ? Disaster ridden ablett / sloane / rocky / sloane / ablett been a vicious cycle from the sc gods

    Derek · 25/07/2015 at 17:01

    He will drop $33k

    I just brought him in this week. I still have 7 trades, so not to worried, will get Dangerfield next week

      Dean · 25/07/2015 at 17:32

      Great decision m8, hope most in the top 500 odd had GAJ also, it could actually work in your favour Derek as you have plenty of trades left to cover your a$$

Derek · 25/07/2015 at 17:03

Selwood did good today. Well done to everyone who held onto him. (I got sick I typing it)

    Swans2012 · 25/07/2015 at 17:49

    Agree me too Derek, he’ll a enrage 110+ from here

Youngy · 25/07/2015 at 17:36

I'm worried about putting the C on Goldy. Remember than 44

Is it worth putting it on Rocky, Beams or Pendles?

    cow roll · 25/07/2015 at 18:30

    i think he should get at least 120.

      Derek · 25/07/2015 at 22:55

      Nice call

Swans2012 · 25/07/2015 at 17:55

Take smith’s 83 or play Hibberd?
I’m thinking 90 is the pass mark for a defender…

    Liam · 25/07/2015 at 17:57

    Take Smith's score Hibberd won't get any better

    Derek · 25/07/2015 at 18:48

    What about Newnes? Should I take Smiths score or loophole Newnes?

      Dean · 25/07/2015 at 18:53

      Derek take Smiths score and put Newnes in your midfield for Beams.

        Derek · 25/07/2015 at 19:52

        I don’t have beams.

Liam · 25/07/2015 at 17:55

Beams a late out.

Poloko48 · 25/07/2015 at 17:55

Beams & Hanley out

Mac · 25/07/2015 at 18:02

Beams out, do I trade him or put O'Brien (ESS) on for cover?

tom · 25/07/2015 at 18:07

Do we trade Beams? If so to who?

Paul · 25/07/2015 at 18:17

Do I trade Beams to Pendles/Hanners/Armitage and have Mckernan on field or do I trade McKernan to Goddard and put O'Brien on field?

    Tyler · 25/07/2015 at 19:16

    Beams to hanners

tom · 25/07/2015 at 18:19

I have 5 trades left with Beams, Ablett injured. Was planning on trading Mckernan but is it worth holding him now as a f6? Or do I bite the bullet and trade Mckernan now and trade Ablett and Beams next week? Leaving me with 2 trades but full premo?

    Dean · 25/07/2015 at 18:51

    trade beams for now thats all. Keep McKerna

Youngy · 25/07/2015 at 18:25

Here's my Mid, if I trade Beams who do I trade him to?

Have Maynard on bench and can afford to trade in anyone for Beams

Thinking of bringing in priddis

    Dean · 25/07/2015 at 18:39

    Get Priddis in now Youngy

    Dean · 25/07/2015 at 18:49

    I'm spewing I am on 11357 played with Fyfe, Martin, Houli playing so this score of 1135 includes FYFE, houli & Martins current scores with 14 minutes in last quarter..

    I only have 2 trades so I dont want to trade Beams out yet, However if I do this im stuck with Steels 65 so I dont know what to do, I need those trades. I'm ranked 1229 overall.

    I got the VC on Fyfe and not sure what to do, he is on 100 now with 13 minutes to go in last quarter.

      Derek · 25/07/2015 at 19:22

      Take steel score. To many weeks to go to burn your trades

Derek · 25/07/2015 at 18:50

Imagine if Beams was ruled out of the game before the Suns game started, how many people would have traded Beams to Gaz

    Dean · 25/07/2015 at 19:33

    Very true I would have done it for sure, if the Cats game was post the Lions game. I had chosen to go Krakouer to Bartel as soon as the updates came out.

    So far im on 1231 after 11 competed players. Captain's score not calculated into that.

    My biggest mistake was having Steele in my midfield as Emergency and Lambert in my Forward line as Emergency. I'm not trading out Beams just yet with only 2 trades left. Hindsight is a wonderful thing.

Dean · 25/07/2015 at 19:03

Im keeping Fyfe's VC score so far 120 points with 2 minutes left. Captain going on Beams.

Tophawk · 25/07/2015 at 22:04

I traded in Tom Rockliff instead of Gary Ablett.

Gaz is out with a shoulder/knee and Rocky is spudding with his ribs issue I suspect.

I thought I made the right call.


This was the year I got sucked in to playing premo musical chairs. Rockiff in, Rockliff out, Rockliff in. SPUD

Others would have done the same with Ablett or both.

Must have wasted 5 trades.

Lesson here is that injured ultra premos are not an indicator of future performance.

    Swans2012 · 25/07/2015 at 22:20

    rocky will come good….
    But tonight, with him sitting alongside Ablett and beams, and the shiny orange c on his head, I could break his dam ribs again!
    In the words of the great crouching one
    I’m angly

      Derek · 25/07/2015 at 22:57

      That was a bit risky.

      I went safe option with goldy

        Swans2012 · 25/07/2015 at 23:30

        Gotta take a chance sometimes, not a big believer in breaking even.
        If I had goldi would’ve c’ed him I’d imagine, just got spooked off fyfe, pendls vs dogs taggers, and well everyone else worthy had played. Guess I expected to use the Ablett vc. Anyway done now…. My season that is…lol we’ll see….

        TRIGGER HAPPY · 25/07/2015 at 23:34

        Yeah i went with the form player in goldy as c as well. Had abs as vc.

Luviboy1 · 25/07/2015 at 22:13

Not too happy with Goldys score as VC. Surely I have to go Gawn against Saints with the C? Other options are Priddis, Parker, JPK, Armitage and Pendles

    Dean · 25/07/2015 at 22:21

    Goldy scored 127 if you don't take that and be greedy then I hope it back fires and bites ya on the A$$…

      Luviboy1 · 25/07/2015 at 23:22

      Was only at 115 when I looked at it. Pretty generous scaling. Will take it.

    Dean · 25/07/2015 at 22:30

    For what its worth I had my VC on Fyfe and happily took his 134.

    If you expected Goldy to score another 150+ against Martin & Leuenberger then you have rocks in your head, I thought his 127 score was fantastic.

    @randomcliche · 25/07/2015 at 22:31

    Pretty happy my opponent didn't take Hodge's 140. #Gaztrap

Dean · 25/07/2015 at 22:20

What are your scores so far, include how many have played and also your Captain if he played.

I'm currently on 1748 points with 15 completed players and Fyfe as my Captain.

Players to play are:- R Murphy, Parker, JPK, Swan, Pendles, Priddis & Dahlhaus.

Good luck to all

    Swans2012 · 25/07/2015 at 22:31

    Your doing good, looks like another high scoring round ( for anyone without Ablett and rocky anyhow)

    1580 from 15 with spudley rocky as captain, Ablett sitting next to him, and beams next to him

    Painful for a round that started with 5 scores over 127.

    Dean · 25/07/2015 at 22:33

    Sorry my score is 1761 after 15 played and my Captain Fyfe

    @randomcliche · 25/07/2015 at 22:39

    Hey Dean, In our pretty sharp league (ranked 33), you would be smashing it in. Most are running approx 100pts/player (assume 23 players and count capt twice). There is one on par (1722 with 15(c) gone) but its an Ablett/Beams/Rocky heavy league. Mine 1308, 13 down (Gaz/Rocky, no beams).

      Dean · 25/07/2015 at 23:35

      Cheers random, I'm in 4 leagues and my best one is (ranked 113) I noticed im the highest scorer in that so far by approximately 90 odd points .

      However in another one of my league's there is a guy on 1815 with 15 played and his captain also played. He has Oxley, Pendles, Newnes, T Mitchell, Hennebery, Swan & Bontempelli to play.

      I am spewing now that I didn't trade out Beams and put in Armatige but my trades are wearing thin fast so opted to take Steele's 65 for Beams. Although the more I analyse it, teams with the likes of Lewis & Hodge will be around 100 points better off.

      Lastly Congrats on your awesome league rank of 33 – that's bloody awesome and hope you can be #1 come season end.

    Derek · 25/07/2015 at 23:05

    1758 after 15 players, including Goldy as C.

    Had Gaz,

    Next worse after Gaz was Enright 79 & Gray 81.

    Have: Newnes, Dahlhaus, JPK, Parker, Priddis, Swann & Pendlebury to play.

    Might get around 2500.

      Dean · 26/07/2015 at 00:02

      Doing well M8 considering you had GAJ, I wouldn't be perturbed about Gray's 81 mate as 90% of the high ranked players will have him, your ranking should improve dramatically this week if you can score 2500 because I think the winner of this weeks $3 or 6k will score around 2600 to 2670

      Hope you do score huge as our remaining 7 players are the same bar one, you have Newnes & I have R Murphy mate.

      Good luck bro

Luke · 25/07/2015 at 22:48

I have smith's 83 as my d7, do i take his score and if so who do i put on the bench out of mcdonald and newnes?

    Derek · 25/07/2015 at 23:06

    I have same question. Straight swap between Smiths 83 or play Newnes?

      Swans2012 · 26/07/2015 at 00:18

      Id play newnes, but I’m a risk taker… And my decisions have been 50/50 so far this week

      Tyler · 26/07/2015 at 08:19

      I think Newnes has a good chance to outscore 83. Since his bye he's averaged 105 and had one score under 100 and that was 79. So it comes down to how greedy are you?

        Derek · 26/07/2015 at 16:06

        He is on track to score 84 😉

          Tyler · 26/07/2015 at 18:47

          Well he ended with 83 so guess it didn't matter who you picked

            Derek · 26/07/2015 at 19:34

            Lol. That is funny

iamme · 25/07/2015 at 23:20

Tell me about it Swans2012 I did the same dam thing!…..100 pts, does not a good captains score make. 15/1496, still hope of 2200+ with Pendels, Swany, Nic Nat, Priddis, Tmitch, Hannebery & Steven to play.

    Swans2012 · 26/07/2015 at 00:00

    It really is painful, but hey, just the way it is…

TRIGGER HAPPY · 25/07/2015 at 23:39

Final delemina. I have tmitch and bont as f7 / m9 swing. Which one would you put on the ground and which one on the bench?

    Dean · 26/07/2015 at 00:17

    Sorry m8 I wouldn't want to direct you the wrong way, it's really flip of the coin for me. Just go with your gut. It's a bloody tough decision.

    for what its worth, when I am stuck in these kind of positions, I like looking at the players last 6 games.
    Tmitch has scored the following in his last 6 games: 144-91-49-105-109-84 – Average of 97 in his past 6 games.
    The Bont has scored these is his last 6 games: 83-93-78-80-142-94 – Average of 95 in his past 6 games

    Going by those figures I would chose Tmitch as he is more consistent of late. The best thing is to go with your gut m8.

    Good luck in your choice mate.

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 26/07/2015 at 10:22

      Thanks dean i already have both players and use them as my bench cover for injuries. Who would you play today?

        Dean · 26/07/2015 at 16:31

        Hope you went with the Bont m8 coz Tmitch is the SUB

        I have no idea what the swans are doing, with no Franklin, Tippet and with Tmitch as SUB is totally absurd. They need Tmitch in there forward line without bloody Buddy & Tippet,

          TRIGGER HAPPY · 27/07/2015 at 10:24

          Actually flipped a coin in the end landed on tails = bont. Sometimes u get lucky.

Mac · 26/07/2015 at 08:42

Do we think Beams will play next week?

    Youngy · 26/07/2015 at 21:04

    He was named to start off, and a late out. So I would assume he should be good to play next week

    Could be wrong tho

Mac · 26/07/2015 at 09:30

Not sure what to do with Maric. Got 4 trades left and next week got to get rid of Gaz and more than likely Beams. I have to hold him don't I?

    Andrew · 26/07/2015 at 10:06

    I would hold not worth sideways trading at this stage. He’s not injured is he?

    Dean · 26/07/2015 at 16:35

    You have to hold Maric mate. He's scoring of late isn't great but it's a massive waist of a trade if you chose to trade him.

    With only 4 trades and GAJ & Beams in your side you got no option but to hold him even if Maric was scoring 50's

    He will come good as they should make the finals.

    Favalinko U Beauty · 26/07/2015 at 20:50

    Hold mate. He rucked against Sandi and now Hampsons gone down with an ankle he will be the lone ruck. HOLD

Andrew · 26/07/2015 at 10:05

Should I keep VC Fyfe score or play Hannebery as captain ? Also should I take lamberts score over Sidebottom ? Please help

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 26/07/2015 at 10:24

    Take the 130 any day of the week. It is banked points hannas will b very lucky to equal or beat that.

    iamme · 26/07/2015 at 10:32

    On Lambert, i'd take the 103, as Sidey can make 130, but he is also know for the occasional sub 80 score.

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 26/07/2015 at 10:34

      Agree again take the banked points

        Andrew · 26/07/2015 at 10:37

        What if one is late withdrawal? I can take his score over Priddis, Sidebottom or Hannebery

          TRIGGER HAPPY · 26/07/2015 at 10:53

          If u r going to play the what if game play sidebum and then decide whether to play priddus or hannas. I haven’t heard anything that any of them will b a late out so assume all will play. What the hell take a risk play all three they r proven and should all score around or above 100.

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 26/07/2015 at 10:36

      Iamme – who do u like out of tmitch or the bont today? Leaning towards titch but pure gut only.

        Andrew · 26/07/2015 at 10:38

        Go with the Bont Titch will get a tagging role in Priddis

CoachDamo · 26/07/2015 at 10:29

So annoyed at myself – had my eye on James Kelly all week for my D6. Changed my mind at the last minute and went Malceski instead. Nooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!

    Andrew · 26/07/2015 at 10:40

    Yeah tough one but Kelly green vest candidate, Malcheski price was hard to ignore and he should keep his spot on the field

      CoachDamo · 26/07/2015 at 11:11

      That's true Andrew. In hindsight, Kelly has had a pretty consistent season (9 scores over 80) so he was a safer pick. Hopefully Malceski uses the ball better next week.

    Youngy · 26/07/2015 at 21:02

    It happens to the best of us

Andrew · 26/07/2015 at 10:35

Anyone please help I can take Lamberts 103 over Priddis, Hannebery or Sidebottom or just leave those 3 in field?

    Derek · 26/07/2015 at 12:01

    Maybe Sidebottom?

      SideBySidebottom · 26/07/2015 at 17:16

      Hopefully not.

tom · 26/07/2015 at 13:08

How long do we think Beams is out for

Pieman74 · 26/07/2015 at 13:27

I can trade out Mc Govern and bring in Harmes by swinging Mitchell to the forward line and putting Newes on the field and Harmes on the bench. Just concerned with Harmes JS given that I brought in Neal Bullen instead of Obrien a few weeks back and have been made to regret that decision ever since. Thoughts???

Gary · 26/07/2015 at 14:21

take lamberts 103 or play tom mitchell?

    Derek · 26/07/2015 at 15:08

    If it was me, I would take 103

      Derek · 26/07/2015 at 15:09

      Hey. I’m a poet and didn’t realise

      Derek · 26/07/2015 at 16:01

      Made your choice easy

luke · 26/07/2015 at 15:35

This is the week from hell for me. Franklin now out and Mitchell sub

    MikeSwansFan · 26/07/2015 at 17:00

    A pox on Longmire's house. Last year he refused to play tmitch. This year he played him and he gunned it and Swans were winning. So he decides to switch him to tagging role, Tmitch's scores are lower, Swans play heaps worse as a team. For three weeks in a row. Does Longmire set him free again to acquire the pill? Does he fcuk, he makes hi the sub.
    Longmire OUT!

Derek · 26/07/2015 at 15:37

Someone posted yesterday if they should get Godard, buddy or TMitch. I hope for them they went Godard

SwansFan · 26/07/2015 at 17:46

Swans are doing their best to lose me the round. Franklin, Mitchell, Hannebry, Parker, Kennedy in my team – two not playing, the others are sucking.
Longmire has to go. Mitchell is one of the elite midfielders in the comp. He's had him tagging for weeks which has made the team demonstrably worse. Now he doesn't even put him on.
Longmire OUT !

    SideBySidebottom · 26/07/2015 at 20:18

    Mitchell elite? Really?

Dean · 26/07/2015 at 17:50

Worst coach's decision of the season, to have Tmitch as SUB against one of the best sides in the comp is incomprehensible, even if Buddy & Tippet were to play but considering that Buddy & Tippet are not playing, makes this decision totally illogical in my opinion.

For what its worth I don't have Tmitch in my side.

    BigDropKick · 26/07/2015 at 18:05

    I do and Buddy …. Horse is consistently a bloody moron

    Tyler · 26/07/2015 at 18:56

    Titch is a perfect sub player unfortunately. He can come on late in the game and when everyone else is tired he can win the ball and outperform other players

      Dean · 26/07/2015 at 19:24

      BS when you have Franklin & Tippet out he should have never been SUB

        Derek · 26/07/2015 at 19:33

        I stayed clear of TMitch all year. Never did like his JS, especially when Heeney came back.

          carlashirley90 · 26/07/2015 at 20:28

          Titch just come to Adelaide mate we will replace B.Smith and you can damage off half back next year

            SwansFan · 26/07/2015 at 20:33

            Cept he's nothing like a half back and never will be.

Tyler · 26/07/2015 at 18:57

Actually good news for me that buddy isn't playing as it lets me take lamberts 103!

Tophawk · 26/07/2015 at 19:08

After this "trainwreck" of a round, what score is Par? My guess is around 2250-2300.

    Derek · 26/07/2015 at 19:33

    I managed 2507 with Gaz in my team. Pretty happy.

    Luviboy1 · 26/07/2015 at 20:30

    Sounds about right. I'm guessing top scorer of this round will be at around 2600-2650 mark.

Youngy · 26/07/2015 at 19:17

Buddy didn't play……. O ****

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 27/07/2015 at 10:29

    Burnt me bad last week b4 finals last year a late out and in the finals. Promised myself never again!

Tophawk · 26/07/2015 at 19:38

Ended up with 2244 this round. All things considered, I will take that after all the crap in my side this weekend. Buddy a late out, Rocky spudding badly, and Maric very ordinary. On the positive, my strategy to preserve trades this round has was a god send. Did not trade out J.Selwood for Ablett like so many SC players. Jel and Gaz then produced scores of 142 and 21 respectively this round.

Sometimes you just need to dodge farkin bullets in this game.

Time to reload for next round.

Dean · 26/07/2015 at 19:40

Scored 2512 bloody spewing i had Steele and not lambert as my Emergency in my midfield, because I got his 65 points for Beams, If Lambert was my emergency in mid I would have scored 2550 even, those 38 points could cost me top 5 this week.

The fact Armitage & Hannebery and Tmitch scored poorly will help me. Although im sure top score this week will be close to 2600 or slightly over.

    Tophawk · 26/07/2015 at 19:50

    Wow Dean. That is a serious score!

    Dont be too hard on yourself. Steele was still very solid. Lambert had one out of the box this week. Bit like Oxley last round. Comes out and pumps out a massive 118. This week he dishes up a turd on steroids (27). So friggin hard nailing the best emergency picks.

    Congrats on your score.

    And I am still happy with my 2244 being a first year player! LOL (Should get me into the top 5%)


      Dean · 26/07/2015 at 20:10

      Well done m8, i have been playing SC for many years so your doing extremely bloody well. Luck has allot to do with it, I don't care what anyone says. I moved Steele & Lambert many times this week, I liked the way Lambert played last week but I stuck fat with Steele only because Richmond were playing Freo.

      I'm so glad I didn't trade out Beams coz if i did I would have gone Armitage who only scored 63 which would have been a waisted trade plus 2 points less then Steele.

      At worst my overall rank should get very close to hit top 1000 im hoping, it means I will have to jump 213 spots for it to happen.

    Derek · 26/07/2015 at 20:13

    You beat me by 5.

      Dean · 26/07/2015 at 20:16

      Derek by 6 mate

      Dean · 26/07/2015 at 20:17

      Sorry your right 5

      Dean · 26/07/2015 at 20:21

      So if you scored 2507 mate with Gaz in your side then the top score will defiantly reach 2600

        Derek · 26/07/2015 at 21:00

        I agonised over trading out Sam Mitchell this week to bring in Gaz.

        Still have 7 trades.

    Youngy · 26/07/2015 at 20:20

    Nice to see you guys pull out some top notch scores

    Well Done Dean and Derek

      Dean · 26/07/2015 at 20:23

      cheers m8. I'm glad you chose Priddis, the guy is a gun.

      Derek · 26/07/2015 at 21:02

      Thanks Youngy

      Hoping to get back in top 200 tonight

        Derek · 26/07/2015 at 21:41

        173rd overall now.

          Dean · 26/07/2015 at 21:46

          awesome m8, I went from 1213 to 539 overall, it's amazing what 1 game can do.

    Luviboy1 · 26/07/2015 at 20:27

    Cracker score Deano, considering the amount of carnage this weekend. A lot of blokes in my main league struggled to reach 2200.

      Dean · 26/07/2015 at 20:40

      cheers Luviboy, yeah the closest scorer to me out of all the 4 leagues im in scored 2345 – That's a 167 point difference. I just can't wait to see the top scores for this week in order, im sure there has to be a way.

        Luviboy1 · 26/07/2015 at 20:49

        I've searched high and low, cant seem to find a way to see individual top scores of the round. You'd have to come pretty bloody close with your score however.

Dean · 26/07/2015 at 19:44

Is there a way how to see who scored the top scores for the round? I'm a SC gold & Herald plus member for what it's worth.

    SideBySidebottom · 26/07/2015 at 20:09

    You'd be close.

      Dean · 26/07/2015 at 20:12

      cheers m8 is your name Phil? If it is your in one of my leagues…

        SideBySidebottom · 26/07/2015 at 20:22

        Yep. I peaked a couple of weeks early, As soon as I saw the 2409 prediction for this week's score I knew I'd struggle.

          Dean · 26/07/2015 at 20:34

          cool nice to chat with ya m8, our league currently ranked 113 averaged 2241.66 this week. That will push our league in top 100 for sure I would think.

    Youngy · 26/07/2015 at 20:59

    Top score will be around 2650 atleast I'd think

      Wattsieesq · 27/07/2015 at 12:32

      Top score was 2,677. Top 5 for the round got 2,600+. I had a turd of a round with 2,348 but moved into 775 overall.

Youngy · 26/07/2015 at 19:58

Happy with my trade from Beams to Priddis

    Luviboy1 · 26/07/2015 at 20:27

    Likewise 😀

Tyler · 26/07/2015 at 20:56

Managed 2217 despite underwhelming efforts from Cal Ward, Gaz, Ebert, Steven, Dusty, Rocky, Gray, Blitz and Mcdonald. Put it this way, Jake Lever (who I had on-field, thank god), outscored all but 6 players in my team. Great

iamme · 26/07/2015 at 21:53

A mix of Carnage and stupidity on my behalf, has seen me drop from 907 to 1248, don't know what processed me to put the C on Rocky when I should of left it Goldy… but we live and learn. Ablett, Hannebery, Tmich & bloody rocky all killed me this round…. My plan for next round was to dump H.Taylor for Tmac…..but now it looks like I'll be bringing in Patty Danger this week to replace Gazza. Leaving me with 4 trades for finals.

Youngy · 26/07/2015 at 21:59

2313, Ill take considering I had Beams, Gaz, Rocky, Buddy

Bigfigrig · 26/07/2015 at 22:10

So i now must trade Gaz..i still have Steele on Field though. Should i be getting Danger in for Ablett and be leaving Steele on ground?
Other option is to get Lewis/Rocky in for Ablett and then i can Upgrade Steele to Bartell. 5 Trades left with 44k bank

    Dean · 26/07/2015 at 22:31

    all depends whats the rest of your team look like.

      Bigfigrig · 26/07/2015 at 22:40

      Shaw, Newnes, McDonald, Simpson, Gibson, Hodge (Hamling, Edwards)

      Fyfe, Pendles, Kennedy, Parker, Gaz, Wines, Selwood, Beams (Lambert, Glenn, Mckenzie)

      Goldy, Jacobs (Cox)

      Martin, Gray, Goddard, Bont, Lids, Steele (Daniel, Dale)

    Glorin · 26/07/2015 at 22:36

    Doing the upgrade should balance out the points you may miss from danger. There are quite a few cheaperoptions around this week also so assess all options.
    I am considering switching hodge to mids and bringing in kelly. Great value still and will free up a lot of cash for final upgrades during finals.

Dean · 26/07/2015 at 22:24

2677 was the highest score.

Minge E Lee · 26/07/2015 at 22:30

quick question community…talking leagues….i can see who i am playing round 18, but round 19 says "no head to head" …do the league finals start round 19 and go 19,20,21,22??? cheers

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 26/07/2015 at 22:41

    Correct. They start a week early to try and avoid the Ross Lyon factor in Rd 23.

      Minge E Lee · 26/07/2015 at 22:47

      cheers trigger happy…terrible weekend…boys trip out of town meant no internet access..had captain locked on gary, have beams and tmitch…what a nightmare!!

        TRIGGER HAPPY · 26/07/2015 at 22:53

        Hope the boys weekend was a belta as that is carnage. Had the vc on gaz, had rocky, maric and tmitch. Lucky i could put the c on goldy else would have been lucky to get 2200 finished over 2300 pretty happy considering.

Nicholas · 26/07/2015 at 23:30

1 trade left not sure whether get rid of ablett or get my last defender i have lever as d6 right now

    Swans2012 · 27/07/2015 at 07:06

    Trade gablett, difference in points between lever and Defense premo much less than being a super premo short…. Assuming you have another defensive rookie as cover?

    derek · 27/07/2015 at 09:06

    Lever will have to do you. Need to upgrade Ablett, unless you think he will be back soon

derek · 27/07/2015 at 09:18

I was going to do a simple paint the fence this week to fill my last premo, but with Gaz going down, I need to fix that problem up first.

I'm going to keep Motlop as a F7/M9, he did good on the weekend, but I'm not sure I can rely on him every week at m8.

Will go Gaz >> Dangerfield this week

Next week (I was going to do this week) Bsmith >> Rookie & Steele >> ??? (should have about $595k to spend).

Midfield is already: Gaz, fyfe, Priddis, pendlebury, JPK, Parker, Selwood, Motlop, (Steele, Lambert, Mckenzie)

Who should I be looking at as my M8?

Other option is to keep BSmith as my D7 and upgrade Motlop and have Steele as my M9/F7?

Still have 7 trades.

Ranked 173rd overall.

    Swans2012 · 27/07/2015 at 12:08

    I’d be looking to keep Motlop and smith if you can Derek. No other ways to make cash? Even if it means taking you down to 4 (or 3 trades). We saw this week how important that cover is.

    As for me I thought I was cooked but turns out my 2202 (Gary, rocky c, beams, t mitchell) was enough to only drop me 100 spots to 300 overall. Wrapped with that as it was my worst week for months! Will think on my trades and post something later

      derek · 27/07/2015 at 12:30

      If I decided to keep BSmith as D7, I could wait a couple of weeks for Lambert and Steel or Daniel to fatten up, Say they all were about $300k in two weeks, I could paint the fence and have $540k to spend on my M8 = Sidebottom or Rocky?

        Swans2012 · 27/07/2015 at 17:07

        Works for me, I like it, I think it’d be a shame to bring in smith or Motlop for cover then trade them. As long as it’s not costing you too many points in the meantime….
        With Rockliffs 50 you might be able to do it sooner?

        Dean · 27/07/2015 at 23:04

        Derek if I had your trades m8 I wouldn't be touching Rocky with a 50 meter barge pole, the last thing you want to do is purchase a player only because you can afford him, especially in the midfield.

        Dangerfield a must in my opinion m8 – As ya said go Gaz to Danger and then when u go BSmith to Rookie & then go Steele to Armitage or Delidio or Hannebery who easily seems the next best option to Dagerfield on paper but because you have JPK & Parker it would be a very ballsy move and defiantly a POD to have 3 swan midfielders.

        Well done mate.

Donavan · 27/07/2015 at 10:38

Thanks Random & Derek for your help coming not round 17.

Ended up bringing in Hodge, and took his VC score.

Won my crucial match-up despite Buddy pulling-out & Hogan's average score.

My POD's fired – Gunston, Motlop

Scored 2496, and won by 150.

Thanks again.

    derek · 27/07/2015 at 12:31

    great work. Do you still need to win this week to make the finals?

      Donavan · 27/07/2015 at 18:18

      I do, but I am playing the bottom team, and they will have atleast 2 doughnuts if they use 2 trades. Looks like an abandoned team.

        Dean · 27/07/2015 at 23:10

        Donavan im sure it was you who was looking to bring in Bartel this week but couldn't due to just falling slightly short in cash.

        If it is you im glad you took my advice to go Gunston mate, he has been the forgotten forward if you ask me, although admittedly I never thought he would score you a huge 165,

        Cheers mate nice score.

Big G · 27/07/2015 at 11:56

Is Boomer Harvey a good F6 or past it?

    Swans2012 · 27/07/2015 at 12:09

    I reckon he tears it the next few, definately consider

TRIGGER HAPPY · 27/07/2015 at 12:57

Just confirmed Abs out for season. At least I got one good week out of him. Can now get Shaw.

Trades – abs to shaw via dpp and titch to either bartel or goddard. Liking bartel

Then in two weeks bont to either Hannas, ward or armitage due to their Avg scores this week with the extra cash I saved abs – shaw.

Leaves me with 2 in the trade cupboard.


    Dean · 27/07/2015 at 23:15

    Do not disregard Gunston in your forward line. Forget his 165 this week, but the guy scores 90+ weekly he only had 1 bad score that was 22 the guy is a GUN but quite expensive now, although his Break even of 6 will mean you wont be losing on him.

    Good luck
