Patch’s Panic Room – Round 18

Published by Patch on

Patch - Supercoach Panic Room Master

G’day community. What a messy week in football with the Adam Goodes saga rolling on, and on, and on, and on. And it has slipped under the radar just how messy this week will be for our Supercoach sides. This is what we need to focus on now, community.

The time has come and gone to discuss Goodes. We need to knuckle down and get set for finals. Keep your eyes on the ball community – that’s all that matters here. Nat Fyfe will miss thanks to Sam Mitchell’s errant knee a few weeks back. Dayne Beams looks cooked. Gary Ablett – just after so many of us brought him in – is straight back out. Several other players have dropped off this week who are unlikely to impact us, but it shows just how fragile our teams are at this stage of the year with so few trades remaining.

Now, into the news!


Gary Ablett has done his knee and is gone for the season, just as he looked to have returned to true form. The Supercoach gods are cruel as they again demand a precious, precious trade to be ripped from our fingers. But it is the nature of the beast.

Likewise it is the nature of Ross the Boss Lyon to rest his superstars at the end of the year. Nat Fyfe will sit out this week, but to be fair, he has been carrying a niggle – and struggling with it – since Mitchell shoved a knee into him a few weeks ago. Might miss next week too!

However, it was surprising to see Dayne Beams named alongside Pearce Hanley for the Lions. Beams had said last week he wouldn’t make it to the end of the year, and I thought his late withdrawal last week spelt the end for his season. I will be holding for now, but if he struggles too much, he will be gone very quickly.

Lance Franklin has been named this week and crucially Tom Mitchell has been named on the ball, where he belongs. Hopefully no more Kermit vests find their way around his shoulders.

Essendon have finally remembered they have Jon Giles on their list, and decided to give him a shot, as he can hardly do worse than Shaun McKernan did against Goldstein a few weeks ago. Speaking of, McKernan has made way for Giles, leaving those of us who – like me – traded him in as ruck cover high and dry.

In no particular order, the seasons of James Aish, Jack Billings and Will Langford will all miss the rest of the year, while Hamish McIntosh has called it a day on his career, unable to overcome his perpetual woes.

The Saints will rest Jack Lonie, Sam Gilbert and crucially Nick Riewoldt this week against the Power.

The Pies regain Taylor Adams, but have rested Adam Oxley and dropped Paul Seedsman.

Michael Hurley and Rhys Palmer have both withdrawn from their respective teams since team sheets were released.


A few holes left this week from the Great Bald One going down. Of course I mean Gary Ablett, not the other Great Bald One in Chicko – that great man will continue ripping this site a new one. Gary, however, won’t be ripping our Supercoach sides a new one each week – so who to replace him with? I like Paddy Dangerfield, who has not put a foot wrong since he came into my side during the byes. The other hot candidates are Matt Priddis – who has the most tons this year, David Mundy – who has only scored below 99 once this year. My smoke candidate to replace him is actually Marc Murphy. He’s scored 5 tons and a 97 in his last six, and at 542k presents consistent value with Carlton’s run home – they play Collingwood, Brisbane, Melbourne and GWS in the Supercoach finals. He won’t blow the game away like Dangerfield might, but as a thrifty point of difference I’d have a look at him.


Hugh Goddard is on the bubble if you’re in need of cash, and has the benefit of being able to slide into the forward or back line if needed. Aside from that, we’ve got a few premos on the slide but not much of note at this stage of the season.

Eddie Murphys

-46 – H. Goddard
-46 – K. Lambert
-32 – A. Browne
-31 – K. Langford
-17 – J. Kolodjashnij
10 – S. Motlop
20 – J. Lever

Dan Aykroyds

157 – K. Jack
156 – T. Mitchell
155 – T. Rockliff
154 – D. Armitage
149 – D. Heppell
146 – O. Wines

That’s it from me this week. I bloody love you community. You’re fantastic. It saddens me I’ve been unable to be in the comments section in recent weeks, and will again be absent today due to life getting busy. But I’ll be here, even if I have to be up at 1am with the cricket on. Because that’s what we do for each other community. Have a good weekend!

May it be full of high scores, playing rookies and fruitful captaincy choices – which should I say are now so much easier with the great Barron von Crow back from Europe! Check out the scouting report, as well as Lekdog’s magnificent video that is lurking around the site here. Have a good one community.

Thoughts Community

Gaz to Mundy
McKenzie to Selwood ( Bench cover for season and cover for Fyfe this week)

Or do I just go Gaz to Danger and save some cash and put Steele on field?

    BomberSam · 01/08/2015 at 09:21

    I like those trades a lot! If you have four plus trades left this week, go for it! If you will only be left with one, then conserve one and trade in Danger.

L.Gibbs · 31/07/2015 at 14:33

Ablett to Priddas or Mundy?

    chase · 31/07/2015 at 16:41


John · 31/07/2015 at 15:08

Keep or upgrade kreuzer

Liam · 31/07/2015 at 15:48

I had Danger locked in for Gaz all week, but now I think I will bring in Macrae

    @KrazeeEyezK1lla · 31/07/2015 at 16:07

    everybody you play against will have Danger. take a chance on somebody else

      Liam · 31/07/2015 at 16:09

      Completley agree Krazee

        xav · 31/07/2015 at 16:21

        come on owe

Dave2008 · 31/07/2015 at 15:55

Any Saad.owners thinking of keeping him for cover? It is 400 k sitting there and I need two more premiums in the midfield. Looking at his scores and average and the defenders I dont have who would I bring in as a D7? Are people with full premo teams thinking of another premo for D7 or just someone solid. Kelly springs to mind but with a be of 15 he would need to come in this week and he’s not a D/M swinger. Normally I would try to get a D/M and D/F om my mid bench to swing forward or back.

My first trade will probably be GAJ to Selwood and then either Saad for H Goddard or Hamling for H Goddard. Anyone got any thoughts on strategy from here ? 7 trades will finish top 4 29 k going for league.

Team :

D Shaw Hodge Simpson Newness Gibson Houli Saad Hamling 

M Fyfe Pendles Ward Lewis Kennedy Parker GAJ Steele Krak Boston

R Goldy Nic Nat

F Martin Goddard Dalihaus Swan Mitchell Tarrant Gray Daniel

    derek · 31/07/2015 at 17:42

    Dave, you left out Knights again!

TheBigbad · 31/07/2015 at 16:06

Who to pick from Rocky, Sloane, Lewis?

    derek · 31/07/2015 at 17:45

    out of those 3, I would go Sloane, Rocky, lewis.

    I think Rocky is a better footballer than Sloane, but without hanley and possible Beams he will have a heavy tag like last week every week now. Sloane is in a team with danger & Thompson who will get plenty of attention.

    Sloane is much cheaper.

    Sloane is playing in a team who are still trying to make the final 8. Rocky isn't.

Mitch · 31/07/2015 at 16:25

Best replacement for Ablett? It’s too hard to pick
Already have Selwood, beams, jpk, Parker, Rockliff, pendles

Tom · 31/07/2015 at 16:29

Mundy or priddis for Ablett

    canardly see · 31/07/2015 at 17:49


Trent · 31/07/2015 at 16:29

Im going for league win and will definitely win this week!!
so in saying that should i..

> Hold gaz and trade to hannerz next week as he should drop $30k with 200 BE saving about 35k for finals
> Gaz to Priddis this week

    Dave2008 · 31/07/2015 at 17:11

    If your finals position is secured and you can’t either move up to top 4 or fall out of it you have no reason to trade except for building cash. How many my trades and how much cash?

      Trent · 31/07/2015 at 17:21

      i have 7 trades left and 70k and yes spot is secured and will be tough to win first round of finals so if i wasnt to trade this week it would mean i can get picken in next week as ill be doing my trades to get ablett out and i need him to fill my backline

tom · 31/07/2015 at 17:23

hello community
i have 11 trades should i do a shark move and trade fyfe?

    derek · 31/07/2015 at 17:49

    I would. get him back next week!

      tom · 31/07/2015 at 17:57

      i am not going for overall anymore i am going for leauge and i am playing someone bad

        SideBySidebottom · 31/07/2015 at 20:48

        This is round 18. After this, in order, are rounds 19, 20 ,21 , 22 and 23. That's six rounds with a maximum of two trades each round. That's twelve trades and you have eleven. I think it's safe to say you can burn a few.

Matt · 31/07/2015 at 17:37

Selwood or danger as vc?

derek · 31/07/2015 at 17:52

McKenzie has been named. Ruins my defence loophole.

    SideBySidebottom · 31/07/2015 at 20:49

    Gives me a playing rookie in defence,

Antonio · 31/07/2015 at 18:02

Who would you recommend that isn’t Hodge or Picken?

JMG · 31/07/2015 at 18:05

Will be trading Ablett to Priddis. Was gonna trade McKernan to Bartel leaving me with 7 forwards, Bont or TMitch would be used as cover in mids, Steele also fwd cover.

However I just realized I can go McKernan to Selwood via Steele DPP. Gives me 9 ‘premium’ mids but I have Ebert who’s been ordinary and Griffen still. Plan would b to loop them against each other if all other mids playing (I have Beams and Fyfe too). but would lose Mid/fwd swing in mids, still have def/mid swing though.

Whats the better option, I will have 4 trades left after doing 2 this wk

Howie Feltersnatch · 31/07/2015 at 18:50

Guys Stuck need advise on the following trade.
GAZ to Priddis & then Krak to Gawn??

    OzSonic · 31/07/2015 at 18:54

    I'm looking at bringing the exact same players. Gaz > Priddis, McKernan > Gawn. Locked on Priddis don't know about Gawn. Would love some thoughts from the community as well.

      Howie Feltersnatch · 31/07/2015 at 19:09

      I am liking gawn reasonable run home & gives me cover if Ross Lyon pulls a fast 1 in the finals & rests Big sandy

        SideBySidebottom · 31/07/2015 at 21:04

        Happy with Gawn's scoring and his ruck cover is a bonus,

john · 31/07/2015 at 19:11

ablett to sidebottom or selwood. what do you think fellas!?

john · 31/07/2015 at 19:14

or ablett to deledio!??

    Tophawk · 31/07/2015 at 19:46

    Tough call!! If you sway to Deledio you better lock him in now! LOL

Youngy · 31/07/2015 at 20:11

Feeling pretty good with the vc on Lids. 64 points end of first quarter

SideBySidebottom · 31/07/2015 at 20:38

"due to life getting busy"………… That's a bit pathetic,

    FootyFanatic · 31/07/2015 at 21:03

    Hey at least Patch is still making regular articles unlike some of the others whom I will not mention, but we all know who they are. *Cough* *Cough* Jock and Higgo

    Youngy · 31/07/2015 at 21:47

    How much work do you put into this site?

      SideBySidebottom · 31/07/2015 at 21:54

      Well between hospital visits for a daughter with a congenital heart defect and trying to run a business, probably not enough.

        BomberSam · 01/08/2015 at 09:24

        Calm down Sir, and put the VC on Selwood.

    Wattsieesq · 01/08/2015 at 14:56

    You get what you pay for. Patch is a volunteer, don't have a crack at him for being absent. That is pathetic.

Luke · 31/07/2015 at 22:54

Take deledio’s 134 or put the C on danger

    Antonio · 31/07/2015 at 23:07

    I’m taking it.

    Bye Week · 01/08/2015 at 00:24

    Don’t be greedy

    BomberSam · 01/08/2015 at 09:24

    Take it mate!

    Derek · 01/08/2015 at 11:03


Dean · 31/07/2015 at 22:57

What a bloody idiot I am. I moved Hodge to my midfield and put Lambert on the bench. I should have moved Saad to my Midfield I didn't realise that Hawks were playing Richmond when I made the move, no idea what i was thinking, actually lack of thinking.

Dean · 31/07/2015 at 23:06

Real tricky position, I had the VC on Hodge am contemplating it to be honest.

    Bye Week · 01/08/2015 at 00:24

    I bet if he scored 7 more points for a 120 you’d take it.

    BomberSam · 01/08/2015 at 09:25

    What other options do you have mate?

Luviboy1 · 31/07/2015 at 23:18

Plenty of captain options after Hodges VC score. Narrowing it down to Goldy, Danger, Priddis and Gray. Oppo has the C on Goldy. What do we reckon?

    Bye Week · 01/08/2015 at 00:22

    I’ve gone gray vs the saints

Oliver · 31/07/2015 at 23:43

Gaz to Priddis or danger?

    Bye Week · 01/08/2015 at 00:21


    Wattsieesq · 01/08/2015 at 14:57


Bye Week · 01/08/2015 at 00:21

Patch, love your optimism regarding Titch and how be has been named on ball….. BUT I’ll believe it when I see if as he was also named on ball last week…..

JIM · 01/08/2015 at 06:51

should i take lewis 121 or go with goldy capt?

    Luke · 01/08/2015 at 07:38

    I reckon you could back goldy to beat that

John · 01/08/2015 at 08:57

What to do with Wallis? Want to upgrade him but scared he's going to get 150

    BomberSam · 01/08/2015 at 09:27

    What's the rest of your midfield looking like, how much cash and how many trades do you have?

      John · 01/08/2015 at 11:59

      Ive got Selwood,danger, pendles, rocky, fyfe, parker and montagna, 6 trades, 10k in the bank

        BomberSam · 01/08/2015 at 13:26

        You're ahead of the pack as far as trades are concerned, you can afford to use 2 this week. I would recommend completing your midfield by doing one up one down. Looking at rookies the only players on the bubble this week are Goddard and Brown, both good options with decent job security in my opinion! Assuming you can make yourself 100-110k, you may fall just short of two very good options in Mundy and Ward. Your best option otherwise is probably Sidebottom in my opinion, offers great value at his current price. If you want to conserve cash, Sloane is a cheaper option. Armitage, Heppell, Treloar, Wines and Boak are other options to consider.

          BomberSam · 01/08/2015 at 13:28

          Brown… I mean Alex Browne* from my club, Essendon. I think he should hold his spot for the rest of the season, and be good for 65-80 points a game. Hugh Goddard named in full back looks good for job security also.

James · 01/08/2015 at 09:03

Vc on Danger or Selwood?

    Eatemalive · 01/08/2015 at 09:22

    I've gone Pendles into Goldy

    BomberSam · 01/08/2015 at 09:28

    Selwood for me! Loves Simonds Stadium and loves playing the Lions. Averages about 150 in his last three against them.

xav · 01/08/2015 at 09:36

Zac Dawson is back slotted straight into d6/7

    Derek · 01/08/2015 at 11:00

    Put the C on him

tom · 01/08/2015 at 11:07

Ablett to Danger. Also do I take Lamberts score or risk O'Brien from Essendon. Also VC on Danger then into Goldy or Priddis.

    Aaron · 01/08/2015 at 12:05

    Take lamberts score, don't see o'brien scoring more than 86 and even if he cracks 100 you have only missed out on 14 points.

    BomberSam · 01/08/2015 at 13:34

    Yep, take Lambert's score. Danger into Goldy. Priddis is a great option two, but Goldy in my opinion is likely to score higher, and so many teams will have him captain so if he doesn't perform, everyone will suffer. If Priddis scores badly, only a handful will have him captain. If you are going for overall rank and need a POD captain to give you the edge, Priddis is a good option!

Mac · 01/08/2015 at 11:10

Ablett to Danger, Armitage, Wines or Pendles

    Aaron · 01/08/2015 at 11:46


Mac · 01/08/2015 at 12:04

Who do I put as skipper, Goldstein or Priddis

    Jim · 01/08/2015 at 12:15

    back goldy

Derek · 01/08/2015 at 12:13

All week have been thinking Gaz to Danger. Thinking a shark move to Sloane instead.

Shaw, Hodge, Enright, Simpson, KK, Newnes, (BSmith, HGodard)

Gaz, Fyfe, Priddis, JPK, Selwood, Pendlebury, Parker, Motlop, (Steele, Payne, mcKenzie)

Goldy, Jacobs

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

Originally going to go Gaz >> Danger and Motlop >> Sidebum or Rocky.

But if I go Sloane instead of Danger, I have cash to go Steele >> Sidebum or Rocky and keep Motlop as a handy M9/F7 (swing with Payne).

What do you reckon?

    Mac · 01/08/2015 at 12:18

    I like the idea of having Motlop as bench cover.

      Derek · 01/08/2015 at 12:20

      So do I, but it means having Sloane instead of Danger

    Derek · 01/08/2015 at 12:18

    I didn’t think, and put Hodge in mids this week to cover Fyfe and put BSmith at D6.

jim · 01/08/2015 at 12:19

Who do I trade Gaz to???? Have Fyfe, JPK, Parker, Treloar, Rockliff, Beams, Priddis

    Derek · 01/08/2015 at 12:22

    Toss the coin for either Selwood or Pendlebury. Both top shelf guns, stars of SuperCoach.

      jim · 01/08/2015 at 12:27

      Had Selwood, traded him. Thoughts on Danger or Hanners?

        jim · 01/08/2015 at 12:34

        Or even bigger POD's Wines or Macrae?

        BomberSam · 01/08/2015 at 13:36

        Danger out of those two mate!

          Derek · 01/08/2015 at 16:53

          Decided to keep in simple and get Danger

RollingTheDice · 01/08/2015 at 12:34

Thurlow for Priddis?


Edwards for Laird or Simpson?

Derek · 01/08/2015 at 12:44

With Hawthorn getting beat last night, Fremantle has locked up a top 2 finish.

Next week they travel away to play Saints on a SUNDAY before their big game at home against WCE.

Ross will rest half the team next week!!!

Including Fyfe if he is not 100%.

Let this be a warning to anyone who has any Fremantle players!!!!!

    Tophawk · 01/08/2015 at 21:50

    Hi Derek,

    I am confident Ross will not rest "half the team next week".

    Big call that.

    Fyfe may be rested again next week, but dont bet on it after my team losing last night.

    Hint: Top Hawk.

jim · 01/08/2015 at 12:47

thoughts on Macrae for Ablett, was thinking Danger or Pendles but me thinks I need a midfield POD as every man and his dog will have Danger after this week

    BomberSam · 01/08/2015 at 13:41

    Why not find the middle ground with a smaller POD that is more likely to score consistent tons? Macrae is a good option, but Ward (5.4% ownership) and Sidebottom (3.3%) are both better options in my opinion, and cheaper. Also, if you are going for overall rank, 18.4% and 6.7% of the top 2000 teams own Ward and Sidebottom respectively.

jim · 01/08/2015 at 13:53

Goldy is a late OUT!!!!!!!!!

Tyson Goldsack!

    Tulendeena · 01/08/2015 at 13:55

    very nice

    Derek · 01/08/2015 at 14:25


Eatemalive · 01/08/2015 at 14:13

Take Lamberts 83 for Fyfe or bring Boston in ? – unless he gets the vest

    BomberSam · 01/08/2015 at 14:31

    Take Lambert's 86, every day.

Derek · 01/08/2015 at 14:24

I put VC on Selwood

    Eatemalive · 01/08/2015 at 14:26

    Good Work — 66 SC points ATM

    BomberSam · 01/08/2015 at 14:32

    Me too mate, looking like a good call!

      BomberSam · 01/08/2015 at 14:33

      Up to 74 just 5 minutes ago!

        Derek · 01/08/2015 at 14:59

        90sc at half time.

        Motlop 57sc, liking that as well

          BomberSam · 01/08/2015 at 15:12

          Selwood VC and Motlop for me. Looking very good!

          Derek · 01/08/2015 at 16:52

          171 for Selwood. I’ll take that as my C.

          I did start to get tired of telling everyone who didn’t have him to get him in. He is a gun!

    Youngy · 01/08/2015 at 17:33

    Should climb you up the ranks

Wattsieesq · 01/08/2015 at 14:59

Looks like Selwood into Fyfe at the moment

Eatemalive · 01/08/2015 at 15:22

Rocky back to form with 82 SC pts 10 mins into the 3rd 1/4

Luviboy1 · 01/08/2015 at 17:26

Hmmm, Daniel, Steele or DMac as cover for Fyfe?

Youngy · 01/08/2015 at 17:32

Brought in Selwood for bench cover and to cover Fyfe, Feeling pretty good.

Mac · 01/08/2015 at 18:07

Trading Beams to Selwood will be popular next week! Even though I traded Selwood for Gaz, he looks good now and will be coming into my team

jim · 01/08/2015 at 18:07

Priddis or Goldy as C?

    tom · 01/08/2015 at 18:15

    If it helps I have Priddis. Priddis up against a weak Suns side and Goldstein is playing Kreuzer, Wood and probably at times Casboult. May struggle against Kreuzer and Wood?

tom · 01/08/2015 at 18:11

What the hell is Danger doing?

    Derek · 01/08/2015 at 20:07

    Wasn’t the best trade in for Gaz. Swans did play well

Baggy Pants · 01/08/2015 at 18:43

Does anyone know what happened to Beams, he was going great early in the game.

wise old man · 01/08/2015 at 18:43

Goldstein or Gaff captain?

    Tulendeena · 01/08/2015 at 18:46

    Is that even a question?

    (I''ll just go now…)

      Derek · 01/08/2015 at 21:24

      Godly will go close for Brownlow this year.

tom · 01/08/2015 at 18:45

Went to full forward due to his shoulder injury

    FootyFanatic · 01/08/2015 at 23:28

    and sat on the bench for the hole 4th quarter

Glorin · 01/08/2015 at 19:00

Wines, gray, nic nat, or goddard for captain? Opponent has danger as captain.

Or bench wines, take lamberts 86 and hodges vc score of 113.

Close match to decide a top two spot.

    Liam · 01/08/2015 at 20:41

    Take Hodge's score.

      Youngy · 02/08/2015 at 07:17


Derek · 01/08/2015 at 21:23

Omg. Did Goldy just score 85sc pts in the 3rd quarter!??!

I have him, but not as C, sorta hoping he would be quiet tonight.

    Youngy · 01/08/2015 at 22:30

    As did I Derek, had the VC on Lids (131) and went with the 130 rule.

    Bit annoyed to see Goldy go big even tho I have him, but everyone has him I guess

    iamme · 01/08/2015 at 22:41

    Had the C on Danger and he stunk it up….. I just thought Goldy was due for a sub 120 game….but how wrong I was.

Youngy · 01/08/2015 at 22:34

How is everyone traveling? Im 1959 with 6 to go Goddard, Shaw, Griffen, Mundy, Newnes and Gray.

Hoping for 2600 +

    Donavan · 01/08/2015 at 22:38

    1658 from 15, and yet to get the captain score (taking Selwoods 170+).

    Looking at 2500+

      Youngy · 01/08/2015 at 22:40


    luke · 02/08/2015 at 08:14

    2129 from 17. Gray, bont, Murphy, ibbo, newnes to play. Selwood vc loopholed. Needed it after the last 2 weeks, been terrible. Another premium gone this week in beams as well with only 3 trades left

    Wattsieesq · 02/08/2015 at 12:23

    1,586 from 14. I still have Selwood's score as captain to get. Hopefully get 2,400+.

Matt · 01/08/2015 at 22:42

Goldy is a gun, no doubt. But can someone clarify why Stef Martin, who had 10 more disposals at 85DE, 5 more marks, 2 less frees against, scores 30 points less?

    Youngy · 02/08/2015 at 07:16

    Hit outs to advantage

      Matt · 02/08/2015 at 07:43

      Do you know where to find stats for them?

        Youngy · 02/08/2015 at 12:50

        No clue

iamme · 01/08/2015 at 22:47

18/1931 with Steven, Goddard, Gray and H.Shaw to go. looking good for 2350+ and got top 2 sown up in both my league's

Tophawk · 01/08/2015 at 23:01

Hi Jock.

Missing those poddies mate!

I just want to let you know that Sean "Jock" Higgins is the man tonight!

He is in my side.

Thanks Jock.

tom · 02/08/2015 at 09:25

Take Lambert's score or risk O'Brien?

    Ashley J · 02/08/2015 at 09:43

    Take Lambo

    Youngy · 02/08/2015 at 12:51

    Take the Lamb

liam · 02/08/2015 at 10:05

mckenzie or steele on for fyfe?

    I N Pieman · 02/08/2015 at 10:08

    You can loophole. Put the e on Mckenzie. Have a look at his score & if it’s no good swap Fyfe to steele

    Wattsieesq · 02/08/2015 at 12:25

    I'd use the loophole. E on Mc and either take his score or sub Steele on for Fyfe.

      liam · 02/08/2015 at 12:34

      Thanks Wattsie

I N Pieman · 02/08/2015 at 10:18

Can’t recall a ruckman dominating SC the way Goldy is ATM. Enjoy him for the rest of the season this year if you have him. He’s going to be priced out of the park next year! It’s going to one hell of a dilema for 2016

    tom · 02/08/2015 at 11:44

    Yes it will be a challenge, as well as a challenge to fit the likes of Shaw, Hodge, Fyfe, Ablett, Gray,Danger in your team. I've been trying to think who many get DPP next season, any thoughts? I for one would love to have Danger in the forward line again…

      Watto · 02/08/2015 at 11:51

      Ryan Griffen DEF/MID, Matthew Boyd DEF

        Wattsieesq · 02/08/2015 at 12:43

        Agree about Goldy. The last really dominant ruck performance that I can remember is Cox in 2011. That was an awesome display as well.

        Hopefully gaz is priced at around 115.

    Youngy · 02/08/2015 at 12:53

    Don't think many people will be starting with Goldy next year

      I N Pieman · 02/08/2015 at 13:38

      Agree youngy. Think it will be Goldy or Gaz but not both. The Goldy is going he will be 800k

        Derek · 02/08/2015 at 18:35

        Remember all the talk at the start of the year about how ruck scoring had ruined the ruckman scoring ability.

          I N Pieman · 02/08/2015 at 20:48

          It did for the spuds

Harry · 02/08/2015 at 12:20

captain on robbie gray or ollie wines

    Youngy · 02/08/2015 at 12:52


    Tophawk · 02/08/2015 at 13:47

    I hope you chose Gray. Wines just got subbed!!!! Gray should get more footy now that Wines is out.

    Youngy · 02/08/2015 at 15:11

    Hope you didn't pick Wines subbed out with 18

tom · 02/08/2015 at 13:28

Who do the community think will get DPP and lose DPP next year?

    Youngy · 03/08/2015 at 07:33


Mac · 02/08/2015 at 13:52

Wines subbed due to injury

    john · 02/08/2015 at 13:59

    thats terrible for my team!!

      john · 02/08/2015 at 14:07

      any news on how bad it is?

        Wattsieesq · 02/08/2015 at 14:48

        dislocated shoulder. He'll be out for a couple

Liam · 02/08/2015 at 14:10

What do you guys think a par score is for this week?
I should get +2400, is that a good score?

    Derek · 02/08/2015 at 17:25

    Anything over 2500 is better than average.

    If Goddard, Dahlhaus & Shaw get 100 each I’ll get 2465

      Derek · 02/08/2015 at 17:26

      I mean over 2400 is better than average

        Derek · 02/08/2015 at 19:45

        I ended up with 2487.

        Most scores in my leagues are around 2350ish with a few around 2500. I’m happy.

    mysterycannon · 02/08/2015 at 18:26

    At the pointy end I reckon you’ll need over 2400 to not drop.

    Likes of NicNat & Danger are popular picks which will help keep average a bit lower.

      Derek · 02/08/2015 at 18:36

      Yep. Brough Danger in this week.

liam · 02/08/2015 at 15:30

Take mckenzies shite score of 40 odd or should i go steele as sub?

    Tulendeena · 02/08/2015 at 17:58

    personally risk steele

    subs tend to get a lot of pts when they come on, steele could crack 40

mysterycannon · 02/08/2015 at 18:20

Maybe I’m dreaming… But wasn’t there a Moneyball article here earlier today? Few people voiced there issue with the fact that Jock’s only presence on site now is to plug Moneyball… And now article is gone. Not great way to gauge fair reflection of community feeling if those comments just get wiped off the site.

It’s a shame how this past few months have unfolded for jock and the boys. I miss how it was…

Hoping you are all having a good scoring week out there!

    Pete · 02/08/2015 at 21:09

    I understand things change and time is precious but what Jock & the team done was shocking. There was meant to be a donors podcast last week from my understanding which didn't eventuate.

    As soon as they asked for donations and so forth it went south very bloody fast. It wouldn't surprise me at ALL if Jock and the team are invested in this Moneyball crap.

      Babo · 02/08/2015 at 22:01

      Pretty obvious if you ask me.

        mysterycannon · 02/08/2015 at 23:05

        They said they get a cut if you go to site through their link.

        Notice how there are nearly no comments on the pages about moneyball… shows how much community is fed up.

        Donors podcast needed or money should be given back.

        I love all that they’ve done for the community over the years but it’s all left a bitter taste in my mouth.

          medadsson · 02/08/2015 at 23:18

          Got to say, haven't been on site much last few weeks. The silence of Jock and co is more than deafening. No articles, no contributions or donors podcasts? Can't help but think there must be other reasons for this although the site is still running. Very disappointing. All credit to Lekdog and others who have stepped up to the plate but the essence of this site were the original 3 and some other solid contributors who also appear to have faded into history. I don't begrudge Jock and co trying to make some coin from their talents and considerable contributions but as many have said, it did all seem to go south subsequent to the 'money drives'. Would have gladly continued to contribute but buggered if I was going to pledge monthly support without an obvious means to stop same. Damn shame.

            All Over · 03/08/2015 at 07:35

            My tinylink account revoked by club jock last week

              medadsson · 03/08/2015 at 21:09

              Righto, thanks … sounds like things are winding up sadly.

      Timmmy · 03/08/2015 at 11:40

      So what. They should be entitled to trying to earn some money based on all the effort they have put in.

    Hope Im Wrong · 03/08/2015 at 20:39

    I have a gut feeling that Jock might have a serious health issue hence the abrupt stop midseason. He had a few weeks off sick earlier in the year and then came back only to wind things up. I just feel this way as I had a boss who one day came to us and said he is closing up the workshop and shuting down the very profitable business sold it all and maybe a year later I was at his funeral as he had died of cancer. My boss just wanted to make sure his family had enough money when he was gone and was way too proud to tell us the reason for his sudden stop (maybe didn't want the pity). I hope I'am wrong but people have to think that Jock reasons for quitting may not be just what he said. Even him saying maybe the podcast could come back would fit if he overcame the health issue. I have thought this from the start when the final podcast was over but do not want to cause alarm or start rumors so kept quiet. People that are bagging Jock for quitting made me speak up

      medadsson · 03/08/2015 at 21:10

      I hope you are wrong too.

Wedge · 02/08/2015 at 18:42

My match up this week came down to dahlaus vs bontempelli. I’m confused and annoyed at supercoach scoring this year. Dahlhaus had more possessions more marks more tackles and more fantasy points yet bontempelli beat him by 20 sc points. Bontempelli wasn’t even included in BOG yet dahlaus was. Am I missing something?

    Ethan · 02/08/2015 at 21:21

    essentially it was what their possesions led to, if it was just a chipped kick backwards then there probably wouldnt have been worth as much as a goal assist.
    The bont also had more of his possesions contested and had a higher DE.
    I would assume bont had more scoring involvments which increased his score

      mysterycannon · 02/08/2015 at 22:00

      Ethan is right.. contested and DE are massive difference makers.. Also possessions inside 50 are worth more than center ground possessions.

      I know your pain though, it does feel like the Bont is kissed on the dick by Champion Data at times through the season.

Donavan · 02/08/2015 at 20:21

2438 this week, included a few Sunday spuds (Ibbotson, Steele, Goddard) and a couple from Saturday (Dangerfield & Buddy).

Anyhow, it was enough to keep me in the final 8 in my money league.

Dean · 02/08/2015 at 21:01

What do you guys think par score will be this week. I only scored 2443 – It's not shocking but not that good either. I'm hoping that my overall rank wont slide, although I think it could be very likely.

    Dean · 02/08/2015 at 21:11

    i went from 539 to 544 so im happy with that.

    Derek · 02/08/2015 at 21:12

    I managed 2487 and rank slightly improved from 179 to 158.

    Matt · 02/08/2015 at 21:14

    Some popular picks with low scores. Par would be around 2450 to not drop. Only managed 2369 as I changed C from Goldy to Priddas at the last minute. Also had Steele on field not knowing he was sub.

Youngy · 02/08/2015 at 21:15

Pushed myself into the top 1000 for the first time for the Season with a score of 2570.

Currently ranked 934 hopefully I can stay there.

    mysterycannon · 02/08/2015 at 21:57

    Congrats mate. Peaking at the right time to push on. I’m battling to get back in to top 1000. Sitting at 1200 now. See you in there at the end hopefully!

mysterycannon · 02/08/2015 at 21:56

Want to go Smith and Beams to Hodge and Bennell but am 32k short. Who’s the priority and any thoughts on best value replacement for either of them?

Currently have:

Shaw, Higgins, Picken, Simpson, K.Kolo, Smith (Goddard, Hamling)

Fyfe, Pendles, JPK, Parker, Selwood, Rocky, Neale (Lambert, Steele, McKenzie)

Goldy, Blicavs (Read)

Gray, Swan, Martin, Dahlhaus, Bartel, Goddard (Daniel, Payne)

Any thoughts oh mighty JR Community brains trust?

    Derek · 02/08/2015 at 22:03

    Be very worried about Neale getting a rest next week

      mysterycannon · 02/08/2015 at 22:57

      Good call Derek. I’ll expect old Ross to be up to his old tricks again. Nightmare being the last game if he’s a late out. Cheers mate

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 03/08/2015 at 15:08

      Yep add Mundy and probably fyfe to that list. Seems u were spot on Derek.

Antonio · 02/08/2015 at 22:31

Zzz. Is Wines to Sloane a good trade?

    Billo · 03/08/2015 at 00:08

    I'm going Wines to Rocky.

    Youngy · 03/08/2015 at 07:33

    How many trades do u have?

      Antonio · 03/08/2015 at 08:31

      I’ve got 4

    Jamie · 03/08/2015 at 08:36


Dean · 02/08/2015 at 22:37

Your best options are as follows: Lewis & Hodge or Amritage & Hodge

Next best option would be – Steven & Hodge

    Dean · 02/08/2015 at 22:41

    i much prefer Armitage & Hodge over Bennell & Hodge that's for sure.

      john · 02/08/2015 at 22:54

      armitage hasnt done well recently (from memory)

      mysterycannon · 02/08/2015 at 22:55

      Yeah. Looking at Armitage, Montagne, Boak. Some more research through week needed.

mysterycannon · 02/08/2015 at 23:00

Maybe I’ve had too much coffee but I’m mighty tempted to get Lachie Hunter in at 325k and emergency loophole between him and Brodie Smith through finals. (Using multiple swing-sets as needed)

125 & 124 in past two games. Kid is a ball magnet if he avoids the snot vest.

    Dean · 02/08/2015 at 23:28

    If who who avoids the Snot vest, Lachie Hunter? There is no way in HELL that Hunter will be the SUB this season that's for certain.

    Even if the kid has a few ordinary games there is no way Beverage will be taking him out this season, listen to his Press conferences, he loves the kid and only with games can he improve.

    The Dogs have been the biggest surprise this season by far, I predicted they would be a bottom 4 to 6 side this year, bloody hell I was wrong.

    If you like him GET him, he will NOT get the Snot vest.

      mysterycannon · 03/08/2015 at 00:06

      He was sub in both round 15 & 16…

min0008 · 03/08/2015 at 00:37

Wines to Selwood or Rocky and Smith for Rance, Houli or Higgins?

    Anonymous · 03/08/2015 at 03:53

    Higgins gives u flexibility if u have H Goddard or Inlayso. Floating donut D/F

JB · 03/08/2015 at 03:52

1. Who would you trade out between B Smith, A Pearce or Malceski?

2. Trade in H. Bennell vs Harvey vs Deledio, thoughts …

    Youngy · 03/08/2015 at 07:32

    Smith and Lids

Gary · 03/08/2015 at 05:45

I keep getting charged for club Jock ( Tinypass ) each month have tried to email to stop taking payments as we get nothing for it have not had a podcast since April what a joke does anyone know how to get payments stopped?

    Youngy · 03/08/2015 at 07:31

    You need to cancel your subscription. Do u have paypal?

    Really disappointing to still see you being charged.

    All Over · 03/08/2015 at 07:37

    My tinypass revoked last week check emails?

      CJay · 03/08/2015 at 10:01

      Yeah I was wondering what is going as I continue to be charged. Jock mentioned in the final podcast that they owe us a couple.
      The amount of free information I have received over the years I don't believe I am owed anything.
      Some communication as to if there will be another paid pod cast or if at least the tiny pass funds are contributing to the running of the site would appreciated.

        Pauly Walnuts · 03/08/2015 at 12:40

        I received an email on the 29th to say it cancelled

Antonio · 03/08/2015 at 08:34

Anyone on the bubble this weekend?

    Wattsieesq · 04/08/2015 at 13:58

    Tom Fields in defence if he comes back from his ommission, Tom Barrass also down back. Other than that, it's slim pickings.

Jamie · 03/08/2015 at 08:35

I got 2404 without Goldstein and Joel Selwood. I'm happy with that. I was somehow able to lock in Robbie Tarrant's 91 instead of Jack Steele's 29.

FootyFanatic · 03/08/2015 at 14:41

Hannebery vs Priddis. Who should I choose and why? Priddis seems more consistent but my concern with him is he has only scored 130+ twice whereas Hannebery has 7 times, but Hannebery is less consistent. Any help would be great.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 03/08/2015 at 14:46

    Who cares one or both will get injured this weekend

    Danners · 04/08/2015 at 10:08

    Priddis, Hannebery can post some low scores when tagged

      FootyFanatic · 04/08/2015 at 16:26

      Thanks Danners, I ended up going with Priddis

Luke · 03/08/2015 at 14:55

Thinking of going Goldstein to Blicavs for cash flow and that vital MID/RUC swing. Leaves me with 0 trades

Thoughts community??

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 03/08/2015 at 15:00

    No way. Leave your last trade for an LTI. Goldy highest scorer last 6 weeks. Need him in your team to have any chance during finals. Without your Opp will score 30-50 points more automatically such is Goldys form double that as capt.

      Luke · 03/08/2015 at 15:07

      But i really need the MID/ RUC swing.

      Are you sure?

        TRIGGER HAPPY · 03/08/2015 at 15:10

        Look at his scores over last 6. Who is your other ruck can u create the swing with them?

        derek · 03/08/2015 at 16:40

        have a look at getting Durdin (north Mel) as a DEF/RUC swing as well. I hear he has been playing really well in the thirds, and is pushing for the ruck spot ahead of Goldy.

        Astounded · 04/08/2015 at 13:20

        Why do you really need the mid/ruck swing? Just hold the trade, if a ruck can't play one week trade then? Why would you trade out the undisputed number one ruck in the SC comp.

    Danners · 04/08/2015 at 10:08

    If you had a few more trades remaining, it would be interesting, but don't use your last trade on it

    Wattsieesq · 04/08/2015 at 13:59

    I see what you did there. Good joke, some fine work.

    Who are you going to swing between ruck and mid. Blicavs and who : )

Confused · 03/08/2015 at 14:55

Does anyone else think it was over kill for Goodes this weekend? Agree there is no room for racism in footy or indeed life. But cmon it was almost as much as the Walsh tragedy which was more than warranted but let’s get some perspective the guy didn’t die! Horses for courses.

    derek · 03/08/2015 at 16:37

    I was at the swans vs hawks game last earlier in the year when the hawks fans started booing him for a few weak free kicks he got. The next day someone comes out and says NOT to boo adam, of course everyone will after that. the more people booed, the more he wanted people to stop. It was never a racist thing.

    FootyFanatic · 03/08/2015 at 16:55

    Couldn't agree with you more, they made a way too big of a deal out of this. I agree that there is no room for racism, but if Goodes was booed because of his background then why weren't the other aboriginal players booed as well? I believe Goodes is booed as he plays for free kicks, takes dives and plays dirty. He then also goes on to antagonise the crowd by throwing an imaginary spear at them, and then has a sook because of the reaction he gets from the supporters and labels it as 'racist'. I personally have never booed Goodes and still wouldn't, but I don't have much respect for him anymore after this hole incident.

    CJay · 03/08/2015 at 17:53

    Far too much media coverage for mine.
    Should have been kept more in house with Sydney getting Goodes the help and support he needs to work through his issues.
    I find Sydney a bit hypocritical as didn't they have the boo a roo campaign?
    If the AFL is so concerned about crowds booing, why do they use booing in their promotions for AFL Kids free Sunday?
    Goodsey, get the help and support you need, get back to playing footy and accept not everyone is going to like you.

TheBigbad · 03/08/2015 at 17:21

Beams and Wines out for – Priddis and Rocky or Hanners and Lewis?

    some random guys · 04/08/2015 at 08:46

    I'd go with Hanners and Lewis

    Danners · 04/08/2015 at 10:07

    Priddis and Rocky, reliable when you need them most

    Dean · 04/08/2015 at 17:20

    Priddis a must but not keen on Rocky at all. You cant afford Priddis and Lewis can you?

    judd0 · 03/08/2015 at 19:25

    Where did you finish in your leagues?
    If you get a 2nd chance if you lose this week maybe hold both.
    If not maybe trade one, possibly Fyfe so you can get Priddis.

      I'm in 2 leagues. I came 3rd in one league and 4th in the other. So i will get a second chance if i lose.

      Any improvements i should make?

    Check out who u play. They will most likely have fyfe who is 50/50 and with a bit of luck Buddy.

      Thanks, just checked. Both teams i play have both Franklin and Fyfe.

Gee this site has gone down hill lately. I'm a massive lekdog fan he is the only reason I keep visiting. I hope lek starts his own site

You have named 7 midfielders, who is your 8th?

I would not trade out Fyfe, its a waist of a trade, chances are 50/50 at this stage so he might play this week.

    Sorry, My 8th midfielder is D.Swan

Lads can I get a comment or two…. Picken or Rance would like some guns out there to pass comment.

    some random guys · 04/08/2015 at 07:35

    Personally, i went with Picken. Thought he would score more consistently. If Richmond starts playing poorly, Rance will more than likely go down with them.

    Both good choices. Rance is the general back there and the intercept king whereas picken has been given more midfield time so both worthy of a Guernsey.
