That intro was some arousing stuff

Wattsieesq · 15/03/2016 at 17:42

Hey Community,

I've got a league, if any of you are keen to join. Code is 598631.

I placed well last year, but I'm looking for people to have a bit of banter with over what is generally a long SC season.

Cheers

    medadsson · 15/03/2016 at 17:56

    In, look forward to the banter :), cheers.

    Callum · 15/03/2016 at 18:12

    Have joined. Looking forward to some banter.

    bAps · 15/03/2016 at 18:23

    Joined, looking forward to it!

Aroused. Significantly aroused. I love you mate.

    jockreynolds · 15/03/2016 at 17:50

    That feeling is whole-heartedly reciprocated my friend. These are special times

Stevo · 15/03/2016 at 17:52

Ok, getting serious now community. How's this team looking Jock, Higgo, Couching??? Some risks yes, but necessary to support a stacked midfield…

D: Shaw, KK, Yeo, Weitering, Hartley, Adams (Collins, M.Brown Ess)
M: Danger, Fyfe, Ablett, Pendles, Rocky, Libba, Mills, Gresham (T.Phillips, M.Herbett, R.Davis)
R: Goldy, Gawn (Grimley)
F: Dusty, Barlow, A.Hall, Wells, Kerridge, Petraca (M.Cox, McDonald-Tippa.

    Kev · 15/03/2016 at 18:33

    Admire that you're sticking by KK and Yeo. Rest of the team looks of okay

      Stevo · 15/03/2016 at 18:46

      Thanks Kev. Bartel another option I'm still considering for D3. Though Yeo should get more minutes.

    todd · 15/03/2016 at 20:09

    Have a concern about Hartley, went missing against West Coast. Have you looked at Dea? Solid numbers but does cost a little more

      Stevo · 16/03/2016 at 07:04

      Agree Todd. Taking a punt on the Essendon Rookies but have some bench options.

    Puck Jump · 15/03/2016 at 23:05

    This is the OFFICIAL Cookie Cutter team. Congrats. Zero Pods.

      Tony · 15/03/2016 at 23:09

      Agree. There will be about 300 of this exact team some Round 1. Not that it's a problem, trading will soon sort them out.

        Tony · 15/03/2016 at 23:10

        * come Round 1

      Stevo · 16/03/2016 at 07:07

      True Puck Jump, I'm looking for early wins this season. Too many burn-men selections last few seasons.

    Beagz · 16/03/2016 at 08:56

    Petracca on field? The bloke hasn't played a single minute of footy…

Gibb99 · 15/03/2016 at 17:52

Simply arousing (as per usual with you lads) Jocky Boy!

What are ya thoughts fellas?

All rookies subject for movement as you'd all know!
Mills, Oliver, Parish causing me headaches
Mitch brown looks sloppy so is only just holding on!

I'M WELL AND TRULY AROUSED FOR THIS YEAR!

    Tret · 15/03/2016 at 18:23

    really liking this team Gibb!

    IMO I reckon theres better value in the forward line than the backline in that 400-500k range so I think youre overspending there and underspending in the forward line.

    Apart from that, this is a really well balanced team with a few good PODs. Good luck for the season mate!

      gibb99 · 15/03/2016 at 18:40

      Good on you son,
      JJ could be drop for Weitering and Hartley or brown dropped for Mcdonald-Tipwungti for an upgrade to Menadue?
      That'll leave us with 400k to strengthen mid

    mr ed · 15/03/2016 at 19:03

    This looks balanced
    I think going 4 on the backline is sensible
    If rookies are only getting 40's or 50's this is just too many points to give up

    ghost · 15/03/2016 at 19:28

    Absoulute Shit! Why do you even play the game of Supercoach! Fancy having Menadue and a guy whose name is Lincoln! It's like you copy your friends from school! The guy who showed you Jock must be a true champ of the Supercoach world. Team rating 2/10 sort it

      walla · 19/03/2016 at 16:43

      Who the f### r u ghost . What a tossbag u r . Shut up u keyboard hero .

    derek · 15/03/2016 at 20:51

    this is what Jock was talking about. too much in the guts!. At least one premium too many in midfield. Where is your cash generation going to come from?

      gibb99 · 15/03/2016 at 21:14

      I'll 'gut' you mate! Nah just having you on HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Love the tips, this is what truly makes this community great! The willingness to help out a mate when it comes to even the most minor change within there supercoach squadron! I love you guys and I honestly hope this community will reach out to the wider community! Even if you arent into supercoach, these forums will restore faith in humanity and propel our nation forward! The community really makes me froth at the mouth and I know I'll do anything to push in to the next level of national superiority! I know I will head down to the local and drink my [email protected]#ked up trades away with a few coldies while enjoying a great game of CoachKings! I can already see those Scooners frothing over the lip! Cheers community!

      Sean · 16/03/2016 at 11:40

      what cash generation? there probably wont even be 4 mid rookies starting rd 1

Andrew · 15/03/2016 at 17:52

Im nearly there…I think.

Thanks in advance.

Shaw, Laird, Zaharakis (I know he is not a keeper but think he is under priced)

or

Shaw, B.Smith, M.Duncan (Like him as a POD)

or

Houli, Laird, M.Duncan.

    Gibb99 · 15/03/2016 at 17:57

    Houli, Laird, Duncan
    I feel like shaws price with drop and you can pick him up later in the year! Not sold on Houli however! I think there is better options at his price!

Gaw · 15/03/2016 at 17:57

Hi guys looking for some feedback for team, mainly is Ablett a necessity?
Def: shaw laird kk johannisen weitering dea
Mid: fyfe danger rockliff cripps libba b.crouch mills
Rucks: Nic Nat gawn
Fwd: Barlow s gray a hall wells kerridge petracca
Cheers!

    SCaddict · 15/03/2016 at 20:44

    Gaz is a 50/50 call for me and can understand coaches going both ways, especially after the post traumatic stress we suffered last season.

    Right now he's in my team but it's one of the things keeping me tossing and turning in bed atm. Will be keeping a close eye on Suns training over the next week before I make that final call. Any other player and I would've said "stuff you" by now.

    derek · 15/03/2016 at 20:54

    have you every watched Ablett play football. He averaged 110 start of last year with only 1 arm.

    Ablett is a must!

    i think Gray and Hall is too risky as neither are keepers. i think you need to pick one.

    Puck Jump · 15/03/2016 at 23:40

    Bit different than the standard team and I Like it!

Steeeve · 15/03/2016 at 18:01

Hi all, I am tossing up my r3 options. I see a few people with Korcheck but he doesn't have DPP. Chol does, but Richmond play a lot of Friday night games so he isn't going to be great for loopholing. Should I go someone like Loersch from GC? I have Grimley forward so could throw him in as cover in case of injury. But don't want to start him at r3 because he will play most weeks it seems.

    bAps · 15/03/2016 at 18:27

    If you're looking for a genuine loophole R3, M. King from Melbourne is your man. DPP and rookie-listed, so he won't play any games this year, and Melbourne have a ton of Sunday games.

      Pman35 · 15/03/2016 at 20:15

      Which M King do you refer to? There are 2 listed, Max and Mitchell, both DPP and $117K priced! I currently have Chol at R3 as only $102K and DPP but hadn't factored in Friday nights so I'm interested to know which M King is best pick for Captain's loop hole for my my R3?

        Phil · 15/03/2016 at 20:27

        Doesn't matter which one u take, both same price, both DPP, both won't play

    Connor · 15/03/2016 at 21:51

    Pick D. Wyatt from Collingwood, $102,000 and shouldn't play at all this year. Also has something like 13 Sunday games…

      Steeeve · 15/03/2016 at 22:06

      Hadn't really even considered him because I thought Collingwood would have a lot of Friday night games.
      Other option would be to just go Grimley r3 and figure that someone will miss each week from my side…

        SCaddict · 15/03/2016 at 22:15

        Pies only play one Friday night game in their first 12 games and half of those 12 games are either Sunday are Monday games as well.

        So they're not actually that bad for loophole purposes at least in the first half of the season. It's just a shame that the one Friday game is Rd2 otherwise they would be absolutely flawless for the loophole.

Jonathon · 15/03/2016 at 18:06

Would like some feedback and thoughts on my team guys
DEF: Shaw, Laird, Bartel, Johannisen, Dea, Broad, (Adams), (Tipungwuti)
MID: Fyfe, Dangefield, Ablett, Gray, Ward, Rockliff, Mills, Oliver, (Gresham), (Mathieson), (Davis)
RUCKS: Goldstein, Smith, (King)
FWDS: Barlow, De Goey, Wells, Kennedy, Menadue, Kerridge, (Petracca), (Brown)

If another cheaper mid rookie pops up ill downgrade Oliver, And I know my Fwd Structure is a bit suspect but i think the value up forward is too good to refuse

Again would love some of your thoughts and feedback thanks

    LionGliffen · 15/03/2016 at 20:04

    mid is way too stacked

    fwd is way too thin. You know you have a problem when De Goey is F2…

    Like the look of the defence though

    derek · 15/03/2016 at 20:58

    forward line is one of the weakest i've seen. you need to have at least two keepers. I would go Ward to Libba and deGoey to Dusty.

Tret · 15/03/2016 at 18:06

What are the community thoughts on Libba?

I know hes at a bloody good price but is he a lock?

Im toying with a team that doesnt involve him. What do we think?

    Cookie Cutter · 15/03/2016 at 18:20

    Would take balls not to pick him at his price

    neil · 15/03/2016 at 18:27

    same here Tret..Idecided to flick him…1 he will grow more slowly than lesser priced rookies given he is not a keeper 2money saved strengthens other lines.. I had Libba and Keays swapped for mills oliver and upgraded Hartley to Dea

      Tret · 15/03/2016 at 18:31

      Yeah not sure if hes gonna be a keeper. Dont really like picking midpricers if I cant see them being someone id want in my final side. Players can struggle coming back from ACLs sometimes

        gibb99 · 15/03/2016 at 19:57

        At such a cheap price and him previously being a Premo mid i think his upside is much better than the downside

          Cpt Pugwash · 16/03/2016 at 11:43

          I have him so far but thinking about dropping him out for another rookie or Premo. Will bring him in before his 3rd game if has cracking out the tonnes+.

          And I'm a Doggies man so big call.

    SCaddict · 15/03/2016 at 20:23

    Hasn't had the greatest NAB but you are getting a fantasy beast in waiting for not much more than a chiko roll and a can of coke.

    So if you don't start with him I reckon there's a strong chance you'll want to make a corrective trade to get him in after 2 rounds.

      Big G · 16/03/2016 at 11:14

      I tossed him for Mills and upgraded to a second premium ruck. I figured he will only average 105 at best and Mills can average 70-75. I feel more confident with a set and forget ruck combo and then I can upgrade Mills to a premium down the track.

    derek · 15/03/2016 at 21:00

    he is worth the risk if you don't have too many other midprice players. I think 1 midpricer on each line is ok, especially if they are a "fallen premium" like he is. i'm not keen on the rising star mid pricers

Greg · 15/03/2016 at 18:06

Advice please community, it is doing my head in !!
Goldstein and Rockliff or
Naitanui and Fyfe.

I am currently running with option one as I think Goldy and Fyfe will score about the same but Rockliff has a greater upside that Naitanui but the niggling doubts about Rockliff's fitness has me re-assessing and now my head is just spinning.
I worryl it will be like being at airport customs where you always pick the wrong queue.

    Redgumwon · 15/03/2016 at 19:52

    Nic Nat & Fyfe for me

    derek · 15/03/2016 at 21:02

    it doesn't really matter, they are all ultra premium keepers. If i was to pick i would go with Fyfe and Nic Nat. I think that we might be able to get Goldy at a discount in a few weeks. But that means starting with a mid-pricer at R2, not Nic nat.

    they will all be in my team by round 10.

Bangs · 15/03/2016 at 18:12

Is Ablett a lock?

    derek · 15/03/2016 at 21:03

    yes

    Jack · 15/03/2016 at 23:05

    Everyone told me he was last year and i didnt pick him. Ablett was and probably always will be the best supercoach player we have ever seen. But unfortunately he has been absolutely ravaged by injury lately. No match fitness. Played 6 games last year. He is a gun and could probably become a gun again. But at 630k, with fyfe and danger still around who have had a full preseason/nab, i dont believe he is a lock. An understandable pick if he plays round 1, but there will always be a time where each fantasy gun can no longer maintain that mantle.

      HOLLA · 16/03/2016 at 00:16

      Agree

        Cpt Pugwash · 16/03/2016 at 11:46

        Not in my team (Gulp)!!!!!!!

        Will see how he goes in first couple. We will all make correctional trades. Just keep some cash handy.

    SCaddict · 16/03/2016 at 00:22

    If I get the slightest inkling he's not fully right and carrying anything more than a minor niggle into Rd1 I'll swing the axe even if Rocket doesn't have the plums to do that himself.

    But so far he's held down a spot all preseason in my team.

    DadSmasher · 16/03/2016 at 08:50

    He should be Bangs. Even if his head falls off in round 1 it wont cost you anything to swap him BUT if he goes BANG BANG BANG you wont be able to afford him without cashing in a premo

@BarronVonCrow · 15/03/2016 at 18:16

Fantastic stuff, Jock, Higgo and Crouching. Love it!

Crouch Bros, both will play, but both will have different roles, but could possibly end up near equal. Big change at the Crows with Pyke preferring a more uncontested style, rather than the pure contested/stoppage work that Sando/Walsh went with. Matt will still have his place along with Thompson to do some contested work in the middle, as will Brad, but Brad is like Rory Sloane in that he can play both in and out, whereas Matt is just a pure accumulator on the inside.

I'm currently tinkering with Jack Steele as my F4 and Ben Kennedy as my F6, but Menadue will be there too potentially.

Rucks are still frustrating. Nic Nat may be locked in, by Tippett who I originally had as R2 was rubbish, but may consider Smith or even Luenberger who seemed to get through a VFL match quite well.

    Patch · 15/03/2016 at 18:43

    Insightful truths coming out of Adelaide – invaluable insight mate. Steele is a bold alternative to De Goey, that's ballsy, Barron. Love it though.

    Also, what idiot suggested Tippett in the first place? Hahah- oh, wait.

    I considered Smith as well but have gone back to my original pairing of Martin and Gawn. Hate dicking around in the rucks.

    I N Pieman · 15/03/2016 at 18:44

    Been a Jack Steele fan for quite some time Baron. Problem is the amount of GWS gun mids. Certainly saw ample mid time. Not sold, but I don't have a line through him. His DPP adds attraction. Can't trust either Crouch. I don't have a mid price mid at all

      Puck Jump · 16/03/2016 at 00:01

      Yeah! Stuff Libba! Agreed. It will be a POD to NOT have him and I like the idea of coming up against him each week. I can't see him bouncing back to a 110 avg off a knee reco and now the Doggies have a very fast paced game plan and their team is STACKED with point scoring maniacs. I'm off Libba and it feels gooooood…

    SCaddict · 15/03/2016 at 19:44

    Most of us have gone in circles when it comes to deciding on starting rucks this season.

    I've come back to my original set and forget GoldMart combo as it's just hard to see either guy under performing even though that's always a possibility.

      derek · 15/03/2016 at 21:07

      i'm not rushing in to the set and forget Rucks. It is still uncertain what the new interchange and subvest rules will have on the rucks and their scoring. remember last year!

      until i'm sure that they will be able to score as well as previous years, i'm starting with NicNat (undervalued premium) and lobbe (#1 ruck in a good team with a dream draw). I will be hoping to get Goldy cheaper than those who start the season with him, and therefore a distinct advantage.

        Steeeve · 15/03/2016 at 23:38

        Love the fortitude to stick with Lobbe. I wanted to, although I never thought I could upgrade him to Goldy. So was going to start with Goldy and Lobbe. But just can't after seeing the ruckmen he is up against early.

        SCaddict · 16/03/2016 at 00:45

        Both Goldy and Stef are fantastic around the ground mobile ruckman with big motors so I expect they will only excel under the rule tweaks if anything.

        Derek I'm not sure what you've seen in Lobbe but he hasn't really shown us diddly in the preseason. Only appears to be continuing where he left off last season which was fairly underwhelming output. In fact he hasn't tonned up since Rd12 last season!

        I hear what you are saying about a wait and see approach but I just don't think the midprice options like Lobbe, Smith or Leuey are up to much chop this season. Just not the same as a proven elite like Sandi who was a midpricer in 2014 who most coaches started with.

          Derek · 16/03/2016 at 09:27

          i like that lobbe has been tackling well.

          It was only NAB.

          My main reason is that i don't want to pay $700k for Goldy. but if i get another premium then it is sideways to Goldy.

            TRIGGER HAPPY · 16/03/2016 at 11:12

            Lobbe? I don't think he is up for it. Won't get back to what he was previously and if Ryder was playing would be in the Magoos.

      mick · 16/03/2016 at 10:09

      same thinking scaddict goldstein cap 300 points matin 100 plus now thats juicy 400 points plus in the ruck

    Eric_the_Red · 15/03/2016 at 20:49

    It's Steele vs Wells at F4 for me. I eliminated Menzel from that equation to make it easier. I had my Cats goggles on when considering him. Can I ask you why you've chosen Steele and turned away from the very popular Wells?

      Puck Jump · 16/03/2016 at 00:05

      Me too. But Steele at F3. The kid is a JET. Look at his tackles last season. Lowest was 4 for the season and debuted with TEN! He racks them up, and even if he gets close to an 80 average he will do his job long enough to be upgraded. He will be reliable and now that the vest is a distant memory i love the idea of backing in a young kid as a POD to ride home each week as a unique. He's neck and neck with De Goey but slightly less popular pick. I'm on him.

      @BarronVonCrow · 16/03/2016 at 11:29

      Wells is my F5. I've gone for both!

    Rabbits16 · 16/03/2016 at 21:11

    Thought brad crouch got dropped

@SC_Centre · 15/03/2016 at 18:16

I've pondering for a while community… when you select your supercoach sides. Do you base it around your structures or certain players?

    @BarronVonCrow · 15/03/2016 at 18:21

    I usually let players dictate structure.

    derek · 15/03/2016 at 21:13

    i have a structure that i wrote down last september. will be sticking to that.

    i select the players as either keepers (3-5-1-3) or cash generators. I have 28 players i see as keepers and if i don't start with them i will be looking at trading them in at a discount to their starting price, never more than their starting price.

@SC_Centre · 15/03/2016 at 18:16

*been pondering

milesdeutscher · 15/03/2016 at 18:19

Toby Greene or Aaron Hall?

    Chill · 15/03/2016 at 18:40

    greene.

    Patch · 15/03/2016 at 18:43

    Aaron Hall every day of the week and twice on Sundays.

      milesdeutscher · 15/03/2016 at 19:32

      Why do you think that? I can see Greene getting back to his 2014 ways and averaging 95+ again this year. Aaron Hall may be affected by O'Meara and Prestia etc. coming back into the side. Maybe we're all reading too much into the NAB.

    Dan · 15/03/2016 at 19:04

    Hall

    Redgumwon · 15/03/2016 at 19:38

    Greene looked to spend more time forward and Steele in the midfield against the Lions. I'm not sure if that was because Stevie J went off at half time or not? Has me a little worried though as I had Greene a lock at F3. I'm now considering Hall at F3

    SCaddict · 15/03/2016 at 19:41

    Both are excellent choices and I'll almost certainly be starting with both unless something funky happens with the rookies next week and I'm forced to restructure.

    If I could only choose one it would probably be Hall as his NAB form has been nothing short of sensational.

    As such the bugger has forced me to pick him even if I do have some concerns about his role and output once the Suns midfield big guns return.

    Spifflicator · 15/03/2016 at 20:09

    Greene looks like he will have the same role as last year and as such I can't see him increasing his output. Steele will, IMO out score him. Take Hall

bAps · 15/03/2016 at 18:23

With Zorko rubbed out for round 1, who should I replace him with? My FWD line was Dusty, Zorko, Barlow, Wells, Menadue, Kerridge. Cheers community!

    Chill · 15/03/2016 at 18:40

    Wingard? had a cracker end to last season

      bAps · 15/03/2016 at 18:50

      I think Hinkley said Wingard will be playing predominantly forward this year, which makes him a no-go for mine. Last season he scored so well because he had a lot of midfield minutes.

        derek · 15/03/2016 at 21:26

        but Port have such a good early draw, the ball will be down there plenty. I'm starting with Wingard

    SCaddict · 15/03/2016 at 19:49

    I'd include either Hall or Greene and use the $100K savings to improve your team elsewhere.

    Grahame Lebroy · 15/03/2016 at 19:51

    Mitch Robinson

      HOLLA · 16/03/2016 at 00:25

      Yep!

    Steeeve · 15/03/2016 at 20:30

    Hall. And I've got Wingard, will still score well plus port has an easy draw.

    Shake n bake · 15/03/2016 at 21:22

    Gray

Vex · 15/03/2016 at 18:24

what structure are people rolling with in the midfield?

I like the idea of 3 rookies on field (mills, oliver, etc) but im also liking a stacked midfield where I have libba at m7

    bAps · 15/03/2016 at 18:30

    I feel there aren't enough midfield rookies that will actually play (aside from expensive ones), so I've loaded up in the midfield. I've got four $600k+ players, Rocky, Libba, and Mills and Gresham on field.

      Liam · 15/03/2016 at 18:41

      Exact same as me Baps.

        bAps · 15/03/2016 at 18:50

        Great minds think alike Liam 😉

    Redgumwon · 15/03/2016 at 19:39

    I've gone with two rookies on the ground in the midfield. Mills & Oliver. Then loaded the midfield

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 16/03/2016 at 11:16

    Libba at m7 Gresham at m8

jimmy7 · 15/03/2016 at 18:31

g'day lads…great podcast as always…..one question for now
Nick Graham: $$390G
NAB 1: 18 DISPOSALS 7 CONTESTED 5 TACKLES 2 GOALS HAWKS
NAB 2: 24 DISPOSALS 16 CONTESTED 4 TACKLES DONS
NAB 3: 30 DISPOSALS 8 CONTESTED 6 MARKS 4 TACKLE 1 GOAL SWANS
so umm idk if i am missing some info but is he going to go good this year orr???

    bezza · 15/03/2016 at 18:51

    Feeling the same mate. Awkwardly priced tho

    Cam · 15/03/2016 at 20:59

    Looks the goods in NAB but in a side that may be on the wrong end of a few big losses it's tough to pick a guy worth nearly 400k when he is yet to show consistency in regular season

    Wally Wombat · 15/03/2016 at 22:32

    Mate I took out Libba and put Graham in. I think Libba will drop some more and Graham will start well then drop off a little as he did a couple of years ago

    Leeds17 · 16/03/2016 at 06:12

    About 90k more than I can justify for a cash cow, when you have the likes of Libba and the Crouches.

    Rabbits16 · 16/03/2016 at 20:50

    Shhhh

    jimmy7 · 17/03/2016 at 13:07

    three hundreds last year out of like six games……though a cant see him getting in my team, i wish he was cheaper, liba is the go though

FootyFanatic · 15/03/2016 at 18:32

Can't choose between Rich, McGovern and Johannisen for my D3. Who would you rather and why?

    Chill · 15/03/2016 at 18:41

    McGovern. Solid player… proven unlike Johannisen. Rich im wary of.

    Patch · 15/03/2016 at 18:45

    I love both McGovern and Johanissen and Rich is being considered… but JJoh is in my side and will stay there. Shannon Hurn is another one I'd consider in that spot.

    bAps · 15/03/2016 at 18:51

    Normally I'd say McGovern, but with Beams out indefinitely and Redden gone to the Weagles, I think Rich is the best pick of those three. Johannisen is just this years NAB flavour, he won't live up to the hype in season proper.

    'Don't Blush Babbie' · 15/03/2016 at 19:18

    I have D.Rampe as D3 ,take the tip imo

    derek · 15/03/2016 at 21:28

    i like Rich. One of the few genuine midfielders who are in Defence this year. With Beams out he will be in the Guts.

    DadSmasher · 15/03/2016 at 22:25

    I'd go McGovern FootyFanatic. The loss of Beams doesn't mean Rich will get more on ball time, Beams was out most of last year and Rich only broke the 100 twice because Mitch Robinson filled Beams' place better than Beams could.
    Rich is a huge trap, last year without Beams in the team he pumped out SIX SUB 60 scores. This year the lions got Bundy from the Cats and Ding Dong from the blues plus the good rookie mids that they drafted. Getting Rich will make you poor.

    Wally Wombat · 15/03/2016 at 22:35

    I have Rich. Lions have lost 2 quality midfielders so I think he will move back into the midfield with some time sweeping across half back as the loose defender.

    Leeds17 · 16/03/2016 at 06:10

    JJ is a Trap I really on he'll average 80odd over a season might start well though with I think it's 7 straight Eitihad games. Rich is similar can definitely do what you want him to but if he starts playing too well will get tagged out of games, McGovern is the most reliable scorer but most unreliable injury wise.

    Youngy · 16/03/2016 at 12:02

    Rich for me, I reckon he will get most midfield time

      Dee · 16/03/2016 at 13:05

      are you guys all locking in H. Shaw?

Disco · 15/03/2016 at 18:34

O'Rourke? Any love?

    SCaddict · 15/03/2016 at 19:53

    Should get an opportunity with the Shiels injury but Mills, Parish, Oliver and Crowley are all cheaper and probably better choices.

    You really just want to jump on the best rookies rather than look for PODs there. They have a very short shelf life and will be culled without mercy once fattened.

    derek · 15/03/2016 at 21:29

    Hartung maybe with Shiels out

      @Inside50mFooty · 16/03/2016 at 01:28

      Agreed, Hartung before Jono, has not found his place from my vantage point.

    Youngy · 16/03/2016 at 12:03

    There are better options… Oliver, Mills, Parish etc

I N Pieman · 15/03/2016 at 18:34

I was out the front of AFL house today with a PUNISH THE ROOKIE SLAYER banner. And they listened. Park your ass on the couch for a month Jeremy!

    Patch · 15/03/2016 at 18:45

    Dammit! I drafted him last night!

      I N Pieman · 15/03/2016 at 18:53

      Hope it was a late pick patch! Sent straight to the boss means your in strife. And rightly so. If he took out Keays no one would have cared

        gibb99 · 15/03/2016 at 23:47

        That man has some steal balls to take out my M10 option!!!! This incident has tipped me over, i'm sorry but it just has! I think the AFL is as soft as Higgo's limp old number! Ban Jeremy Cameron for AT LEAST a year! You can't honestly tell me that stifling a young mans career for a fair bloody chunk of the season isnt worth one year? The Essendon boys got a year and they didnt ruin any supercoach teams or destroy and young players careers (and cheekbones). Its time the AFL (Australian Flogs League) took some responsibility and injected a little of of equality into this exscuse of a league and banned Cameron for life!

Great stuff fellas, love your work.

Would love the community's thoughts on my team.
DEF: Laird, Bartel, JJ, Weitering, Dea, Hartley (Brown, Adams)
MID: Fyfe, Danger, Pendles, GAJ, Rocky, Libba, Mills, Gresham (Petracca, Hewett, Davis)
RUC: Goldy, Gawn (Wyatt)
FWD: Martin, Barlow, Hall, Wells, Kennedy, Kerridge (McCarthy, Tippa)

Rookies are subject to change depending who gets named.
Let me know your thoughts.

Cheers Liam.

    Chill · 15/03/2016 at 19:04

    Pretty standard. I like it but I feel like I have seen this team 100 times before. Might be a reason it's so popular!

      Liam · 15/03/2016 at 19:24

      Not sure what changes I should make, I understand it is a bit of a cookie cutter team.

        Swans2012 · 15/03/2016 at 20:04

        If your happy with it just roll with it! Plenty of trades to differentiate your team once the season starts. No point taking a pod just to be different!

          Chill · 15/03/2016 at 20:30

          I agree… wasnt having a go Liam. Last year's winner had a very standard team.. no PODs. its how you trade.

            Liam · 16/03/2016 at 08:07

            I'm wanting to trade Martin for Lids and JJ for rich but can't find the cash.

      Dale · 16/03/2016 at 12:34

      it doesnt matter how your start it, its how your trade in the next 20 odd rounds

    neil · 15/03/2016 at 21:01

    my team is very similar but I couldn't resist shaw for bartel and rockys hammy and history led me to cowboy neale otherwise exact.including bench but trades will make us so different good luck Liam

      Liam · 16/03/2016 at 08:06

      Cheers Neil

azza · 15/03/2016 at 18:39

hey guys thoughts of trading dusty to robinson,
which makes the fwd line: barlow, robinson,hall,wells,kerridge,kennedy ?

    neil · 15/03/2016 at 19:13

    have you thought about Liam Jones from blues cheaper dpp plays for a poor definetly a pod

    Redgumwon · 15/03/2016 at 19:40

    No keep the Dust man

    Genius · 15/03/2016 at 22:27

    Wise move azza don't let anybody change your mind

      BB · 16/03/2016 at 00:52

      I'm with Genius azza – Mitch will tackle his way to 90+

    SCaddict · 16/03/2016 at 00:57

    Whilst I don't think Robbo would be a bad choice you should be careful on making a knee jerk reaction off one NAB weekend where Robbo waxed and Dusty waned.

    I don't have either fella so don't really have a foot in either camp but just something to think about.

      DadSmasher · 16/03/2016 at 08:46

      I don't think its a knee jerk reaction SCaddict. Mitch ave 114 over the last 8 games of last year, won Lions Best and Fairest, was Captain for NAB1 and topped the ton in both NAB games.
      Dusty ave 102 over last 8 games, not in top 5 for tiges B and F, attacked a woman with chopstick in his preseason, stunk it up in Nab, has personal problems and struggles to reach 60 against Carlton

    Sammy · 16/03/2016 at 11:59

    Great stuff mate, you have the exact same fwd kind as me!!!!! I really like robbo this year with no beams there, will maintain the role he had towards the backend of last year! A serious POD it seems and due to a high tackle count, Brissy don't have to win games for him to score points!

Chill · 15/03/2016 at 18:42

Any love for Brodie Smith out there? His price is hard to pass up despite his poor performances…

    jimmy7 · 15/03/2016 at 18:51

    Personaly i rate smith highly, if he gets goin…goodluck stoppin him!!

    bAps · 15/03/2016 at 18:52

    He's currently an option for my D3, I have yet to decide between him, Hurn and Rich…

      Chill · 15/03/2016 at 19:03

      Don't see the appeal in Hurn… played 2006-2015 with mediocre supercoach scores. What indicates this will change?
      I'm trying to decide between Smith and Suckling…my biiiiig POD call…

        Luke · 16/03/2016 at 07:15

        Hurn did score two centuries in nab

          Chill · 16/03/2016 at 08:51

          key word being NAB. remember lumumba.. dont forget it.

    SCaddict · 15/03/2016 at 19:58

    What's that burning smell??

      Chill · 15/03/2016 at 20:28

      he'll be on fire out there on the field?? there's a lot of potential burnmen in the back this year…. johannisen, bartel, kk, yeo…

        SCaddict · 15/03/2016 at 20:38

        Yes maybe it was just my post as it was a tad incendiary.

        I gotta say I'm kind of tempted on Johanna at that price range so maybe he'll turn out to be my own personal burnman.

        So let's hope both Smith and Johanna light it up on the field this season, rather than light us up instead! 🙂

    Dice · 16/03/2016 at 08:16

    Keep it quiet Chill, I reckon he's a must.
    And to make things better he's a POD the former 2014 all australian.
    Just turned 24 and started last year like a house on fire before injuries interrupted his year.
    I have enough money to pick Laird – but i'm saving that on Smith

Obviously rookies subject to selection
Thanks!

    Kev · 15/03/2016 at 19:22

    Looks a bit light in the midfield

    LionGliffen · 15/03/2016 at 19:59

    Too many midpricers in the forward line maybe?

    Hall, De Goey and Wells all carry a certain risk. You have all 3

    Not to mention Lonergan is an awkward price for what will at best be an 80-85 avging season

Dan · 15/03/2016 at 19:04

Anyone think Sam Gray will be a FWD keeper? Will he be top come end of the year? Considering Wingard over the likes of Martin and Dahl, but wondering if there may be possibly more upside in Sam.

    Kev · 15/03/2016 at 19:21

    At the price he is you have to pick him as a keeper. Top 10 he's a good shot; top 6? Maybe not

    Shake n bake · 15/03/2016 at 21:30

    I have S Gray only reason I really think he's a keeper or else I wouldn't have selected him.

    @footy_bec · 16/03/2016 at 09:37

    I think he will be a keeper. All good signs, reminds me of Robbie when he broke out.

Buddy and B.Crouch
or
D.Shiel and a rookie option (maybe Mccarthy or Menadue)

    Siri · 16/03/2016 at 00:14

    BUDDY…… interesting…….. something tell me to get him in the team.

    buddy and crouch if u can afford…. any updates on crouch's suspension for breaking team rules???

    Borisbaconbeer · 16/03/2016 at 12:39

    Option 1

@grayson_lowee · 15/03/2016 at 19:16

My team is very close to being finalized, any suggestions? Also, M.Brown or Hartley? Who out of C.Mills, D.Parish, and C.Oliver? Who out of O.Wines, P.Cripps, L.Parker?
Def:
H.Shaw, R.Laird, J.Johannisen, J.Weitering, M.Dea, N.Broad. (M.Brown, M.Adams)

Mid:
P.Dangerfield, G.Ablett, T.Rockliff, L.Parker, O.Wines, T.Liberatore, B.Crouch (Pending R1 selection), C.Mills. (B.Kennedy, G.Hewett, R.Mathieson [Depends on length of injury])

Ruck:
N.Naitanui, M.Gawn (S.Grimley)

Fwd:
D.Zorko, M.Barlow, A.Hall, D.Wells, C.Menadue, S.Kerridge. (C.Petracca, AMT)

50K left in the bank, going for both league wins and a top 1K ranking, hopefully i can pull it off, im just going to take zorko on the bench for RD 1, and hope that switching him with B.Kennedy via DPP will score 80+. Also, should i go AMT or L.McCarthy? Have enough cash for both.

    RobDogs · 15/03/2016 at 23:12

    Zorko is suspended

      @grayson_lowee · 15/03/2016 at 23:16

      yeah i know, did you read the final paragraph? 🙂

    @footy_bec · 16/03/2016 at 09:41

    Like Hartley over Brown. C.Mills over the other two. And Cripps over the other two. That last one is probably against what others would say. I rate him highly.
    Def – is good – Weitering might be a little weak for D4 but is standard among many teams.
    Mid – Solid but I'm not sold on B.Crouch coming back in straight away. I think he is underdone despite SANFL appearance.
    Ruck – like it
    Fwd – I have no issue waiting for Zorko for one game. I am going with Robinson myself.
    I think AMT is hard to go past at his price.

What u guys think?

    cuzza · 15/03/2016 at 19:37

    I'd beware of bennel and bartel but that's personal opinion, Bennell because you don't know what ole rosy has in store for him and bartel Im cautious about age/ body holding up

      SCaddict · 15/03/2016 at 20:05

      Tend to agree cuzza although Harley did look pretty good on the weekend even if his SC score didn't reflect it.

      But Barlow really is a must have this season in my view, as boring as it may seem, and will be in every one of my fantasy salary cap sides.

        Tony · 15/03/2016 at 20:47

        u reckon I should ditch McGovern or Gibbo for Bartel? I originally had Bartel but changed mind cos of his injury and not so great year last year. Harley will dominate in my eyes as I think he's the missing link for freo..

          SCaddict · 16/03/2016 at 01:11

          Yes Bennell could be a nice POD for you but are you not a believer in Barlow in 2016? Has been one of the standout performers in the NAB and looks every bit the Barlow of old that delivered us 110 plus seasons.

          I understand your concerns on Bartel and they are certainly valid. But I'd still favour him over a KPP like the Governator even as awesome a KPP as he is. If Bartel still sounds too risky to you perhaps spend an extra $30K to get someone in like Simpson or Laird who shouldn't let you down.

          Alternatively you could even consider a bargain buy at D3 like Sheridan, Sutcliffe, McKenzie or Harwood and use that cash elsewhere.

Cuzza · 15/03/2016 at 19:31

Thoughts?
changes to rookies/ bench/ maybes as req

DEF: Yeo, Gibson, Laird, nelson, Dea, brown (ess). Bench: Adams (W/B), Hartley.

MID: Danger, Abblett, Pridda, Mitchell, M. Crouch, Libba, C. Mills, C. Oliver. Bench: Menadue, R. Davis?, D. Macpherson?

RUC: Gawn, Goldy Dench: Currie

FWD:Barlow, A. Hall, stringer, C. Sinclair, Wells, Kerridge Bench: McCarthy (Geelong), Tipungwuti.

    Rakesh · 15/03/2016 at 21:25

    I like your bench especially the Ruck. Are you positive about Ablett or just because others are picking him? You do not have brownlow winner in your team which seems to be a brave call. Sam Mitchell is ageing and Stringer is maturing. The breakout player to be touted is one saint who will play more in midfield rather than in forward line. All the best though it will change once round 1 teams are announced.

      Cuzza · 15/03/2016 at 22:26

      IMitchell has actually been changed 3 times from treloar and ward and Fyfe haha, just trying to get the mid tier lads I'm keen on. I expect Fyfe to drop in value initially to be honest, the talk of him rotating out of the forward line has me worried about losing value, I don't think it will be much but it will be around 30- 50 k I reckon. Enough for me to swoop on him after and lock in

      Cuzza · 15/03/2016 at 22:29

      And yeah same goes for king Ablett, as far as whether he's a lock

    Should be a nice little cash cow if named for Rd1 although I will probably be starting with Mills and maybe even Oliver instead, depending on the Brad Crouch situation.

    I expect there to be a lot of scurrying around after Rd2 as we all jump on the best of Mills, Parish, Crowley, Oliver, Gresham, Menadue, Macaffer, Kennedy, O'Rourke etc just before the price hikes.

      Steeeve · 16/03/2016 at 09:38

      Agreed about the scurrying, which I mostly avoided last year. Anyone who picks the best rookies to start the season will have a massive advantage.

    @Inside50mFooty · 16/03/2016 at 01:30

    will be on my bench, but must have selection (obvious) by Woosha. Clearly a talent, just when, price is fair.

    Youngy · 16/03/2016 at 12:08

    Prefer Mills and don't want to run with to many 200k+ rookies

      Dee · 16/03/2016 at 13:26

      will he play round 1?

Trent · 15/03/2016 at 19:36

Community, what are your thoughts? This has just crossed my mind today that J. O'Rourke (230k) looks to be the next ready made player to step up in place for the recent injury to the likes of Liam Shiel meaning he should get a bit more of a run and midfield minutes? Too much of a risk or potential POD in the sense of a cash cow..?

    Harry Gibb · 15/03/2016 at 19:56

    Terrible team, don't bother to play the game

    Puck Jump · 16/03/2016 at 00:11

    Risky bro

    SCaddict · 16/03/2016 at 01:20

    Go for it dude if you really believe in O'Rourke and see the opportunity.

    Worst thing that could happen is that he turns out to be a disappointment after two rounds in which case you can easily jump down to a Mills, Kennedy, Parish, Oliver, Menadue, Macaffer or Crowley who are all cheaper albeit you'll have one less trade in your pocket.

    But I doubt that many coaches will start with him given those other options on the table.

      @randomcliche · 16/03/2016 at 01:23

      If you structure allows, run 2 or more of those SCaddict identifies (I'm going Kennedy). Fair chance Mills/Kennedy higher at rnd 3 imo. Just have to go deeper in other lines. I don't think any of them are bad individually, just tricky trying to jam em all in an effective team.

        @Inside50mFooty · 16/03/2016 at 01:33

        Agree with Random, why waste a trade, just see who Clarko slots in , my bet on Hartung, Billy has been a beast in training term. Jono completely untested in AFL.

          Glorin · 16/03/2016 at 05:57

          Different roles. Hartung hardly going to be at the coal face tackling like a mad man. He will replace suckling, in a way. Might open up a slot for Lovell, but more likely O'Rourke with poppy, bruest, whitecross getting more mid time.

            Glorin · 16/03/2016 at 05:58

            Or Howe.

what are everyones thoughts on mcveigh

    SCaddict · 15/03/2016 at 20:15

    Almost certainly won't play Rd1 so shouldn't factor into anyone's starting selections.

    Nonetheless he'll likely be in heaps of teams including mine in the second half of the season given his precious DPP eligibility in defence.

    Danners · 15/03/2016 at 22:34

    Injured, upgrade target

    Youngy · 16/03/2016 at 12:09

    Injured…..

Redgumwon · 15/03/2016 at 19:49

Maybe swap Simpson for Laird? Not big on Crippaa either as there might be better options that won't get tagged as much.

    Holty · 15/03/2016 at 21:02

    everyone has their opinions but i like the Simpson pick. He has been a proven premium so less risk. you know what your getting. Laird is still a uncertainty. I have him in my team but when you seriously compare the both of them, im wondering why im not going simpson myself

      The_Black_Mamba · 15/03/2016 at 21:16

      Exactly my thoughts Holty, You know that you will get a definitie 90+ average from simpson if not 95.

        Holty · 15/03/2016 at 21:25

        True. I like your defensive line. very strong. My structure sort of similar but have weitering and dea at d5 and d6.

Oliver (Melb) and Goldy

Nic Nat and Libba

    Probably the first option although you should really try to find a way to squeeze Libba in there as well.

    Chill · 15/03/2016 at 20:33

    100% nic nat and libba. lock and load.

    Definitely option 2

Simmo6 · 15/03/2016 at 20:26

Community thoughts on Dylan Shiel? I feel like this could be his year

    Redgumwon · 15/03/2016 at 21:17

    I was thinking the same thing. I've got Shiel in at the moment. If he stays fit and has the break out year he'll be a keeper. If not I'll be looking to trade him up to a ultra premium

    Shake n bake · 15/03/2016 at 21:46

    I've put in Shiel for Rocky a little cheaper but I'm starting to think he'll average more than Rocky now.

    Steeeve · 15/03/2016 at 22:24

    Start of last year he was fantastic. Then injuries hit. Primed for a break out but I'll be going with Wines instead at this stage to save coin. Not enough cheap rookies!!!

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 16/03/2016 at 11:23

    I've had gray in my team from the start but I watched sheil the last couple of games and boy was he impressive. Think I.may start him and yep see him as a keeper. Just so clean and composed with mummy back should get a stack of the pill.

Chill · 15/03/2016 at 20:33

    Very Mid Price & Speculative Jambo, are you banking on the guns to drop in price ? If you are you will be trading up a lot of which will waste a lot of your trades. Good Luck

    SCaddict · 15/03/2016 at 21:44

    You're chock full of premo PODs there Jambo so well done for thinking outside the square.

    I'm just not that brave so my own team looks very cookie cutter in comparison.

    My only criticism is that you are really neglecting a lot of the best rookies which you have to pay more for admittedly but JS and output should more than offset that for a number of them like Mills, Oliver, Kennedy, Menadue, Crowley, Gresham, McCarthy etc.

    Big Kev · 15/03/2016 at 22:21

    I think m.robinson and d.rampe are awesome picks , just couldn't squeeze them in my team.

Sam · 15/03/2016 at 20:42

Hey guys would love some feedback if you've got a minute!

Def: Laird, Kolodjashnij, Lonergan, Dea, Brown, Hartley (Broad, Adams)

Mid: Fyfe, Dangerfield, Ablett, Rockliff, Wines, M Crouch, Liberatore, Mills (Oliver, Gresham, Keays)

Ruck: Naitanui, Gawn (Grimley)

Fwd: Martin, Barlow, Hall, Wells, Kennedy, Kerridge (Petracca, McDonald-Tipungwuti)

$57400 remaining

Obviously the concern is the backline but I just can't justify spending another 100k on upgrading someone to Weitering despite his job security. Other question marks include:
– Lonergan vs Seedsman
– M Crouch v B Crouch
– Aaron Hall

Cheers and love your work!

    Jambo · 15/03/2016 at 21:07

    I'll start with the criticisms of your team. Before I so do, please understand that this is my opinion and you don't have to follow all of it.

    I don't like the choices of Lonergan in the defence, Crouch jnr in the midfield and Benny Kennedy in the forward line. You might say, the former two performed very well in the NAB Challenge but when the season proper starts, I think Lonergan might average 70-73 and if Crouch snr plays, junior makes way for him. I think you've picked one too many super-premiums in the midfield. I think your defence looks quite lean. I think you need to make a choice to keep either Mills or Oliver.

    Now for the positives, your team looks great. I like the choices of Nic Nat, Laird, A Hall and Dangerfield.

    In reference to your query over the players you typed. I reckon you've made the right call to not pick Weitering. Seedsman is inconsistent and Lonergan seems to me, a bit of a tease. I reckon Brad always plays over Matt unless injury or suspension offers the latter an opportunity. I expect Aaron Hall to continue his late excellent season and NAB form. stick with him.

    I hope I helped you. Good luck.

      Swans2012 · 15/03/2016 at 22:46

      Slightly disagree on lonergan, I think he's got 80-85 average in him which will do while things sort themselves out back there.
      Otherwise I reckon what Jambo said. I'm tossing up the pair of crouching ones myself and have decided on brad if he's named purely because I need the extra cash.

Andrew · 15/03/2016 at 20:52

Thoughts on Z.Smith? Looking at him to make some money elsewhere?

    SCaddict · 15/03/2016 at 21:16

    As impressive as Smith looks on the field his actual SC scores in the NAB and prior seasons have in actuality been less than impressive never cracking the 80pt barrier for a season which is pretty ordinary really.

    There's also a lot of competition for his role at the Cattery and durability has been a major issue if you look at his games played in all but his rookie season.

    So I'm just not a believer in that selection myself. In fact none of the midpricers like Lobbe or Leuey look that enticing either.

    Also after the disaster that was TBC last season I just wouldn't scrimp in the ruck dept this season as it's one of the worst spots to suffer a burnman. There is so much value in the forward and back lines in 2016 that I'd look for a saving there so that you can run with two elite rucks instead Andrew.

    Holty · 15/03/2016 at 21:17

    people are talking about him but honestly this selection could destroy your whole season. If he goes down early, you will not have enough money to replace him with anyone.

    Youngy · 16/03/2016 at 12:11

    Too risky for me

Steeeve · 15/03/2016 at 21:00

Ben Kennedy, Wayne Milera or Connor Menadue?

    Jobesbrownlow · 15/03/2016 at 21:05

    Kennedy

    'Don't Blush Babbie' · 15/03/2016 at 21:06

    Wait and see .Kennedy should be named, the other 2 will go close , but if I had to pick i would go Kennedy because he has been in the system for a few more years,Cheers

    SCaddict · 15/03/2016 at 21:36

    They all look decent selections to me. Menadue should get his opportunity early with all the dramas at Punt Road and if named for Rd1 will likely find a way on to either my midfield or forward bench along with probably Kennedy.

    Milera does look a real talent though so I understand your uncertainty.

      Steeeve · 15/03/2016 at 22:28

      Thanks all, going with Kennedy and menadue for now. Really struggling with mid rookies.

Mark · 15/03/2016 at 21:19

Jobesbrownlow · 15/03/2016 at 21:41

What chance do we think Dean Gore is for Round 1? Also, anyone have any idea when Nathan Freeman might debut?

    SCaddict · 15/03/2016 at 21:53

    BVC may have a good answer for this but surely Gore has to be in the mix for Rd1.

    Of course there is nothing quite the same as getting those team sheets next Thursday so that will be the final answer obviously.

    In other words patience grasshopper…

    I believe Freeman is at least still another month away before being available for selection if not longer. Could be an option for an early loophole but given the uncertainty on when he may actually play senior footy I probably wouldn't go there.

    Steeeve · 16/03/2016 at 09:39

    Gore, possibly for round one.
    Freeman, likely never at this point.

YellowNBlack · 15/03/2016 at 21:42

hey guys,

would love to get some opinions on my team, struggling to be happy with it this year:

Def: Shaw, Macmillan, Sheridan, Dea, Hartley, Collins bench Broad, Ruggles
MIds: Fyfe, Pendlebury, Ablett, Rockliff, Parker, Liberatore, Mills, Kerridge Bench Oliver, Menadue, Davis
Rucks: Goldstein, Gawn Bench Grimley
Fwds: Martin, Barlow, Hall, Wells, Kennedy, Milera Bench McCarthy, Brown(ess)

any advice would be massively helpful.

thanks community!

    Unknown · 15/03/2016 at 22:12

    No to Sheridan and no to Macmillan and broad won't play round 1 , otherwise solid team

    Blueprime · 15/03/2016 at 22:40

    You can not afford to put a 200+K rookie on the bench.

    Leeds17 · 16/03/2016 at 06:08

    Don't mind the POD in McMillan, though Sheridan worry' me in a Ross Lyon team, I think if you are going to go with Oliver might as well have him on field.

    YellowNBlack · 16/03/2016 at 17:45

    yeah fair points thanks guys appreciate it!

      Dan · 15/03/2016 at 22:39

      I had Gibbo last year, but unsure of him this year. Good POD though and probably a keeper.

    Holty · 15/03/2016 at 22:37

    like it kev. still unsure of Houli with Yarran now playing but who are we sure of in the back half?

    Glorin · 16/03/2016 at 06:36

    Strong backline mate. I am running with Gibbo at d3 so I see having him at d4 is a bonus, as long as it hasn't affected your other lines

Johnno · 15/03/2016 at 22:16

Sheridan d4?

    Danners · 15/03/2016 at 22:32

    Where you should have him if you were to have him

    SCaddict · 16/03/2016 at 00:00

    I think you could also sneak him in as your D3 especially if you are considering even cheaper value options like McKenzie, Harwood, Dea or Weitering for D4. Then use those savings to put together an even more kickass midfield or ruck dept.

    Of course a lot will also depend on what rookie defenders get named next week.

Fitzy · 15/03/2016 at 22:18

To quote the great man Jock himself, this is a bit of a cookie cutter line up – with a few POD's. Any feedback much appreciated

Shaw, Laird, Yeo, Sheridan, Weitering. Collins (Hartley, MacD-Tip)

Fyfe, Danger, Gray, Treloar, Parker, L.Hunter, Libba, Mills (Menadue, Petracca, Hibberd)

Goldstein, N.Vardy (Grimley)

Barlow, Hall, Wells, Duggan, Kerridge, Adams (Milera, Dale)

I have switched around between Ward, Treloar, Rocky in the Mids and I had Caleb Daniel up forwad. Cold Feet on him ATM. Also had Currie as 2nd Ruck but really don't know with his job security – Vardy is a smoky and should play I feel

    Dan · 15/03/2016 at 22:38

    Your PODs are super risky, hope you've done your research! Good luck mate.

    Bill · 15/03/2016 at 22:50

    Give yourself some credit mate this isnt a cookie-cutter line up. I have a similar structure myself, going very light up forward where I believe most of the value is

Danners · 15/03/2016 at 22:26

Another great podcast Jock! I also feel a loaded midfield is a big risk. You'll miss out on the big guns on the cheaper which is also a reason why you shouldn't load up on super premos. I would love to have Goldstein, but he is a bit too pricey and just because they averaged big one year doesn't mean they will do it the next.
Also community, thoughts on M.Robinson, S.Gray, or A.Hall for F3? I feel Robinson is more likely out of the three to get midfield but I would like to hear some thoughts.
Thanks…

    Dan · 15/03/2016 at 22:36

    I have been pondering those exact people too. Robinson is very interesting. I feel he has a high ceiling but is unpredictable. He will give 100% every game though. I think he will get off to a great start, or crack without Zorko and Beams in amongst it for the first few rounds. I have S Gray at F2 and Hall at F3 at the moment. S Gray simply because now Zorko is injured I can't find anyone worth the spend I'm certain will be a keeper, except for maybe Deledio, but I think he's overpriced. S Gray should continue his NAB form into the AFL and won't get rested or cop attention. Apparently Wingard is set to play more FWD time so I can see Sam playing delivery boy and racking up significance this year. Port has an excellent draw to consider too. Hall will play midfield and has shown he is more than capable in that role, lock.

Dan · 15/03/2016 at 22:27

Anyone considering R Gray and Wines. I'm a Port man and my heart is telling me yes but my head is telling me Parker. Thoughts? Also got S Gray F2.

    Danners · 15/03/2016 at 22:32

    I would think two would be the maximum midfielders you should have from one team

    magpie4ver · 15/03/2016 at 22:36

    Ive considered both but I think you have or should go with 1 or the other? I would say R. Gray and Parker………if you go with wines then another premo?

      Dan · 15/03/2016 at 23:34

      I was considering Priddis but I'm not sure if he's going to kick the ball? Can also afford Hanners and and the likes of Mundy but I don't see them as keepers as much as Priddis, who I feel is a tad over priced. Port play 6 home Saturday night games, I think they're in for a good season. Also tempted but Robinson insteas of S Gray, not sure if I've lost my marbles.

    Steeeve · 15/03/2016 at 23:42

    I swapped Gray out for Wines. I think Wines is better value and will allow me to pick up those slightly more expensive rookies without breaking the bank if necessary.

    We managed to get ranked 25 this week! Unfortunately, I brought the league average down but hoping to bounce back this week… Should be a great league though!

Steeeve · 15/03/2016 at 22:45

Who are we looking at for midfield rookies? I know we will have to wait for team announcements but that makes it difficult to finalise the rest of your team!
At this stage I'm considering throwing a couple of forward/mids into the guts because there seems to be more depth up forward…

    SCaddict · 15/03/2016 at 23:40

    Yes it's looking possible if not probable that we may have to shove one or two DPP forward rooks on to our midfield bench especially now that Mathieson is out for 6 weeks. Trengove and a cheap DPP in Petracca also look very unlikely for Rd1 although could potentially play VFL from what I hear in a best case scenario.

    But if Gore gets named he will be hard to pass up for the price so that could be one midfield bench spot taken up. Gresham is another reasonably affordable option all coaches will have to consider if named. Also Keays is another cheapie that could get called up for Rd1 especially now that Mathieson and Beamer are sidelined. Then there's the $200K club that can't be ignored.

    So as much as I'd like to say these are definitely the rookies you should have on your midfield bench there are just too many variables atm.

    I'm afraid it's going to be a mad dash next Thursday night especially with a number of Blues and Tiges rookies factoring into the equation but I guess it's the same pressure for all coaches.

Bill · 15/03/2016 at 22:47

Community,
Weitering and B.Crouch or
Rich and Davis/Marcon

    Dan · 15/03/2016 at 23:41

    Weitering and Crouch

    Steeeve · 15/03/2016 at 23:43

    I can honestly see Weitering averaging almost as much for about half the price

    @randomcliche · 16/03/2016 at 01:38

    I like A. s.t. all being on field.

Stevo · 15/03/2016 at 23:03

How/where do you select a team?

@OldCampaignerSC · 15/03/2016 at 23:09

McCarthy vs Milera for F6

    SCaddict · 15/03/2016 at 23:46

    McCarthy is a lock in Addicts if named. Hasn't put a put foot wrong in the NAB so I expect that to be the case.

    Milera could also make my bench although it really depends on how the full rookie picture shakes out next Thursday night. However I'd still rank Kennedy and Menadue ahead of him in terms of my own team formulations.

    @randomcliche · 16/03/2016 at 01:39

    If $ no issue, I'd take Milera. But I'm running Mccarthy…

Trenna · 15/03/2016 at 23:13

Thoughts on J. O'Rourke? He is 230k and should get more opportunity with the injuries at hawthorn!

    SCaddict · 15/03/2016 at 23:51

    He's a legit possibility but I just don't see him quite as attractive as some of the other cheaper members of the $200k midfield club like Mills or Oliver.

    Time will ultimately tell and we may all have to make one or two corrective rookie transactions after two rounds.

    @randomcliche · 16/03/2016 at 01:42

    Struggled to break into the team last year. I like that the sub is gone. I hope he gets time as a hawks fan, but I won't be betting my SC dollars on it…. didn't score that well, although haven't checked TOG… go to advance stats on the afl website…….

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 16/03/2016 at 11:29

    Stated will replace sheils in the midfield

    Youngy · 16/03/2016 at 12:14

    To much for a rookie

Gibbs · 15/03/2016 at 23:22

Thoughts on Kade Kolojasni? Is he a keeper and worth starting? Also Aaron hall or Tony Greene?

    Dan · 15/03/2016 at 23:40

    Maybe. And Hall.

    Steeeve · 15/03/2016 at 23:44

    He's almost 500k. If you get him it's for keeps. I'm taking the punt on Hall also, as a keeper I hope.

Dan · 15/03/2016 at 23:39

Is it insane to start B Crouch and not Libba? I think Crouch is more likely a keeper in a Dangerless crows with a new game plan, than the old dog recovering from an ACL. Did anyone see the NAB where he slumped? I didn't see it, am I jumping at shadows? Even if there's a valid reason I still think Crouch is very significant.

    Swans2012 · 16/03/2016 at 08:49

    I agree crouch is significant, but more risk than reward with leaving Libba out IMO, find a spot for crouch alongside Libba, I'd certainly rather crouch than any of the 300k back/forward line options. Libba almost doesn't count because everyone has him

Dee · 15/03/2016 at 23:46

Why is everyone obsessed with having Laird in their backline…. Not sold on him! Houli for me as a POD….

    ThatDamnRascal · 16/03/2016 at 00:02

    The output from Houli will drop once Yarran slots into the side

    SCaddict · 16/03/2016 at 01:44

    Laird has only continued where he left off last season, averaging over a ton in his 3 NAB games, which is as the number 1 rebounding rooster in defence at the Crows, much to the chagrin of Brodie Smith sympathisers. 🙂

    Whilst there are never any guarantees in fantasy I see him as a relatively safe bet and have him happily locked away in Addicts. Both Simpson and Houli are decent alternatives for non believers like yourself although even those selections have their drawbacks.

    Kev · 16/03/2016 at 06:50

    Why aren't you convinced about him, Dee?

The Mountian · 16/03/2016 at 00:03

Looking to finalise my team, any opinions on any obvious weaknesses in the team are appreciated

Cheers Community

    SCaddict · 16/03/2016 at 03:33

    Looks good although I doubt any of your midfield bench will play Rd1. So you will probably need to invest further there I'm afraid and maybe cutback on a premo somewhere.

      The Mountian · 16/03/2016 at 08:48

      Yeah, I will have to wait till teams are announced next week to finalize my rookies

Bill · 16/03/2016 at 00:12

Pretty solid mate. Only thing I'd say is theres no real PODs here it looks a bit like a cookie cutter

Jim · 16/03/2016 at 02:11

    Kev · 16/03/2016 at 06:46

    How much you got left, Connor? Your team looked fantastic until I got to Wells at F3. That is too high imo

      Que · 16/03/2016 at 08:45

      I dont think its too high

      Wells can have premium like output with Kennedy, Milera and Kerridge all looking like really good options to play onfield

Riggsy · 16/03/2016 at 05:02

Mathieson getting knocked 6 weeks in to the future isn't the worst news. Gives us a clear downgrade target to cash in some cows

Falcon · 16/03/2016 at 07:23

Good morning community
My midfield is pretty solid with danger ablett priddis gray ward shiel libba and mills
I have 3 on field defenders and 2 forwards with wells
Shold i drop priddis to upgrade other lines?
Or take a set midfield into the season?

    Swans2012 · 16/03/2016 at 08:50

    Structure seems fine to me….

Nathan · 16/03/2016 at 07:33

Is it worth still taking zorko even though he's missing a week?
No beams and been said he's going to get more midfield time
And also using Sinclair at f4 instead of taking grimley?

    Swans2012 · 16/03/2016 at 09:14

    Ive taken Sinclair at r2, not sure he's valid as a forward option. I'm thinking he'll hold his value at worst or maybe punch a 90 average until I can afford goldy for a good forward rookie. He'll be a handy f7 cover/loophole later in season but as for starting him up forward I think there are better options. No reason you couldn't hold zorko, he'd certainly be a pod. Good luck

    @randomcliche · 16/03/2016 at 11:02

    I like Sinclair at f4, provides ruck cover, but fwd line is very crowded space in that 4 to 500k space. I don't mind the R2 into fwd line if not starting goldy.

      Nathan · 16/03/2016 at 11:29

      I guess the issue im coming up with is i have nic nat and gawn as rucks
      I want cover but grimley not going to score well compared to Sinclair
      But then again id be hoping not to use geimley in the ruck at all if the ruck stay fit
      My fwds atm are zorko barlow hall Sinclair wells kerridge with petracca and tippa in the pine
      I might bring grimley back 8n and upgrade crouch

        @randomcliche · 16/03/2016 at 11:50

        Looks fine (noting rnd1 zorko bench) assuming you are running 3 keepers in DEF and 6 in MIDs (inc Libba). If so pretty strong.

    @randomcliche · 16/03/2016 at 14:25

    Sounds pretty bloomin' strong to me 17 potential keepers (D3, M7, R2, D5)…I'm running 16 potential keepers (M6) and even some of those are just a speculative as yours. If your keeper rookie budget is roughly similar to mine then I think you've done well. I've spent prolly a bit more per player on premos, although no fyfe. The extra rookie, hopefully a bit more cash down the line. I think you can go even 1 lower this year at 15 potential keepers, noting that each extra one you go back is another week to full premo. That's got to be balanced by what your 'full' premo team looks like.

      Nathan · 16/03/2016 at 15:24

      17? Nah thats the midfield I have without Sinclair and a bargain basement rookie budget
      So I have Laird docherty hurn dea brown hartley – broad Ruggles
      Danger ablett priddis gray ward shiel libba mills – petracca gresham davis
      Nicnat gawn – wyatt
      Zorko barlow hall wells kerridge adams – grimley tippa
      Keepers 3 back 6 mid 2 ruck and 2 forward
      So 13 keepers i think

        @randomcliche · 16/03/2016 at 21:30

        Depends how you wanna count it, but mine pretty structure just a few different cattle.
        I would describe yours with a split of 16/14: D3, M7, R2, F4. If Libba is going at 110, Wells at 100 and Hurn at 95 you're not selling those cattle and can legitimately say its full premo when upgraded dea, brown, hartley, mills, kerridge, adams. I was thinking you'd done pretty well to nail 17 as I'm struggling with 16 to really nail it down….haven't really settled it but getting close now. Any comments on a D3 would be tops. Looking at Yeo, Hurn, Wellingham, Johannisen, Sheridan, B Smith. Also, wondering if I need to go harder and get KK in…… thoughts?

        BTW my Def currently reads: Heater, Laird, Bartel, Dea, rookie, rookie, rookie, rookie (Hartley, Brown, collins, broad). The change I'm considering is Heater down to one of the D3 identified above to give cash to bring in better rookies on other lines.

        Now I've got a full pic re: Sinclair, I'd say don't do it. All 4 of zorko, barlow, hall and wells will be better than Sinclair. If you don't want the R3 doughnut put grimey there, which is what I'm doing. I reckon with 14 bloody rookies I'll have a doughnut somewhere after round 3 to stick C on. Then after that I'll just buy in a floating doughnut during the killing season. As good as our little rookies some of them get tired or get crap or both and get thrown off the park, so its a bit of risk rnd 1-3 not having a doughie but one I'll take b/c I think grimey can make money.

        But what's the alternative. I don't think Sinclair is a bad pick, but prolly a few points behind Hall for the first half of the season and if you want the blanket, go for it. I think you'll be super stoked come bye rounds and if they get rested/injured etc. And although we have a week clear between finals and the season proper, I still think there will be some resting at seasons end…. jesus I've nearly talked myself around to it…Hall to Sinclair. Or in my case R2 to Sinclair. Would save me doing the heater thing…. hmmm

          Nathan · 17/03/2016 at 06:12

          Hahaha i hate this time of the yeah coz theres so many options
          I really like the was my team is set up now so i was wanting cover for rucks but i think im better using a trade if needed later down the track and hope to make enough money to upgrade a r3 later

          As for dropping shaw for better rookies i think it comes down to which rookies are available and which ones to want to bring in
          I like him but not a chance i can get him in atm
          I think if you weigh it up like shaw 110 and ill say gresham 65
          Compared to kk 90 and parish 80
          Id say youre better witb shaw even if the points a 5 or so better as you will most likely make more money with the cheaper rookie coz most rookies will score around the same
          You cant expect a rookie to avg more then 80 and most will go around 60/70
          So for me no Sinclair coz i like hall and his scoring output till gc mids come back and ill access him then
          And i say stick to shaw and a cheaper playing rookies as yiu will most likely make more money

    @randomcliche · 16/03/2016 at 22:08

Keano96 · 16/03/2016 at 08:14

Hi all, wouldn't mind seeing some opinions on my team! Any comments will be greatly appreciated.

REM SAL: $4,400

Def: Shaw, Laird, Birchall, B.Smith, Weitering, Dea (Adams, Ruggles)

Mid: Danger, GAJ, Priddis, Rocky, Libba, Mills, Menadue, Kerridge (Petracca, Keays, Davis)

Rucks: Goldy, Gawn (Loresch)

Fwd: Lids, Barlow, Hall, Wells, Kennedy, Milera (McCarthy, Tippa)

Biggest worry about my team at the moment i think is having Brodie Smith. I could get Johannisen instead but im not sold on him either. Hall is all a bit of a worry but think hes worth the risk.

    Phat Man · 16/03/2016 at 09:03

    If I were you I would drop milera to kerridge and upgrade to a Johannisen/Yeo. Also I love the Hall selection, should be an absolute gem

      Kev · 16/03/2016 at 09:18

      JJ is a February flyer imo. No real signs from last year that he'll break out, and is a massive risk for those considering him to be a keeper.

      Kerridge already in the mids. Swing him forward and grab Gresham

        Keano96 · 16/03/2016 at 16:44

        Yeah im worried about JJ. Think im with you in regards to the fact he could be a NAB trap.

        So you would essentially take Gresham over Milera??

    Shinboner · 16/03/2016 at 10:45

    I like it, one of the better ones I've had a squiz at today mate

      Keano96 · 16/03/2016 at 16:44

      Cheers for the feedback mate!

    @randomcliche · 16/03/2016 at 11:11

    Are you confident Lids didn't max out last season? If so you've got a great POD. Easy swing to buy another premo mid, but hey rest looks strong, esp the back line. Wouldn't worry about brodie s. If doesn't perform, just downgrade to whichever rookie is best on the bubble. Similarly for Shaw, you can swing via tippa and get a premo mid. Although, your DEF/FWD/RUC lines are real strong so I don't think you are far off the pace without 5 premo mids + libba. I think its pretty well balanced, and you'll just make a few rookie changes when teams named – crystal ball, where are you?

      Keano96 · 16/03/2016 at 16:51

      Watching Lids play in the NAB cup albeit he only played a half, he showed me enough to feel comfortable in picking him and i think he will still manage to avg upwards of 105.
      Yeah i reckon going 4 premo mids + libba shouldnt be too detrimental, but its obviously not ideal
      Thanks for the feedback though!

Steele · 16/03/2016 at 09:10

Footy starting next week has generated some serious trouser action!
Any comments, concerns, constructive criticism for my side would be appreciated.

DEF: K. Simpson, Bartel, J. McGovern, Johannisen, Hartley, M.Brown (ESS) (N.Broad, K.Collins)

MID: Fyfe, Dangers, Ablett, Shiel, Rockliff, Libba, B.Crouch, Mills (Gresham, Petracca, R. Davis)

RUC: Nic Nat, Z.Smith (Grimley)

FWD: D.Martin, Barlow, Greene, Wells, Menadue, Kerridge (Kommer, M.Adams)

Couple of risks being taken in the Ruck and Defence. But Johannisen looks the goods. (Surely Murphy and Suckling will cop more close attention back there?). And I think as long as McGovern's shoulder stays attached he can go 95 av with his marking and capability of swinging fwd/back.

    @randomcliche · 16/03/2016 at 11:19

    You've spotted the risks but they aren't the worst ones I've seen. One of my favourite teams of the morning. To drop some risk, one of D1, 3, 4 into Dea, cash into Smith, Crouch (neither of who are 'bad' selections.

      Steele · 16/03/2016 at 15:41

      Mmm the recent couple of days there has been a lot about 'not taking risks in the ruck department'. So I think you're right with the point that whoever gets downgraded should be a defender. But I can't decide who!

      Or I could go Greene to Kennedy but that does leave the FWD light on.

The Moops · 16/03/2016 at 09:34

Hey guys, interested in some feedback on my team if you've got a moment. $69000 remaining salary.

RUCKS: Naitanui, Gawn (Korcheck)

FWD: Dahlhaus, Wingard, Hall, Wells, Kerridge, Petracca (Papley, Chol)

    Shinboner · 16/03/2016 at 10:42

    Looks good mate, maybe have a look at Yeo & Hall. I would upgrade either of them to a reliable scorer and slot a good rookie option in instead. Deledio & Dea instead? Your call tho, go with your gut my friend

Steeeve · 16/03/2016 at 09:42

Looks like most sides will have to fork out for higher price rookies. I know I'll be riding the rollercoaster with my choices well past round two. Remember when a bunch of people traded out Cripps for Nathan Van Berlo last year?

Monkey_Magic · 16/03/2016 at 09:48

Hey lads,

Setting up a league to try and finish Top 10 overall.
I finished Top 1,500 for my team last year so looking for entrants who also finished Top 1,500.
Code is 470587.

Also Jock, any word on Jock Reynolds Premier League Divisions this year? I was looking forward to my promotion to Div 2 after a tight battle with you in the finals!

Love having Jock, Higgo, Crouching and the boys back on board for Season 2016!!!

Uncle Chop, Chop · 16/03/2016 at 09:52

Are people forgetting about Jordan Lewis? Can he be more consistent than Parker or Shiel?

    Chill · 16/03/2016 at 11:20

    Lewis is probably more consistent than Parker. Be interesting to see how Shiel goes. I think all three will go missing some games and give you pretty low scores. But you will get the big scores from them too. I'd go Lewis or Shiel over Parker.

    Sam · 16/03/2016 at 12:01

    Don't go to any 'chipmunk' Hawks. The best team who share the ball around but not for SuperCoach scores.

Sidebum to Rocky for mine (cookies anyone?). Shaw to Bartel if you want some more cashola for anything else….perhaps spend on Z smith.

    Hi Mick I've got Matt at the moment because I'm not sure that Brad will line up round 1.
    If Brad plays and does well 2 weeks in a row I'll probably downgrade an under performing 400k+ player to bring him in. He does seem to break easily though.

Marco_Polo94 · 16/03/2016 at 11:39

Have I gone too light in defence?

DEF: KK, Bartel, B. Smith, Dea, Brown, Hartley (AMT, Ruggles)
MID: Danger, GAJ, Hannebery, Ward, Rockliff, Libba, B. Crouch, Mills (Menadue, Petracca, Mathieson)
RUCK: Goldy, Nic Nat (Currie)
FWD: Barlow, J. Riewoldt, Hall, Wells, Kennedy, Kerridge (Cox, Milera)

Not confident in any defender except Shaw, and he is so bloody expensive. Still undecided on Goldy at that price too.

    mick · 16/03/2016 at 11:43

    not realy probably way to go h shaw and rookie 4 bartel and smith maybe

sean · 16/03/2016 at 11:44

rance, houli or another option around that price?

    Dee · 16/03/2016 at 13:52

    Houli

greg · 16/03/2016 at 11:48

will George Hewett play??

    George · 16/03/2016 at 18:12

    Don't think so but I hope

jimmydowland · 16/03/2016 at 11:48

best intro of all time

paz86 · 16/03/2016 at 12:03

which 3 do i go with between bartel, b.smith, yeo and laird ??

    Big balls · 16/03/2016 at 18:12

    Smith yeo laird

Cpt Pugwash · 16/03/2016 at 12:03

Here is my team!!!

B: Rich, Laird, Bartel, Sheridan, JJ, Dea (Adams, MacD-Tip)

M: Fyfe, Danger, Priddis, Mitchell, Pendles, Libba, Mills, Kennedy M, (Gresham, Petracca, Davis)

R: Mummy, Gawwwn (Currie)

F: Martin, Hall, Kennedy B, Milera, Menadue, Kerridge (Brown Ess, McKarthy)

Not taking any Premo who may have an injury cloud over them. Thinking that some rookies may change with promotion? TBC

I think Mummy will smash a few big ones out early, leaving an upgrade option.

Like most, rookies are a worry and how many times do we see a Rnd 1 opportunity only to get banished the week after. That's why I have tried to target higher end rookies that have better JS this year.

Cheers
Cpt

Is J Townsend, Tigers at $302K a worthy mid price mid option. The Tigers went and got him as an inside mid. I have him in my team at this stage. Your opinions will be gratefully received.

    paz86 · 16/03/2016 at 12:13

    im a tigers fan and think he will play everygame barring injury (which imho is very high chance due to his playing style) but wont be a high scorer

      Boffa · 16/03/2016 at 14:37

      Thanks paz86. Already have Crouch, Mills, Libba's and Wells. Who is a better scorer than Townsend at a similar price?

        Rob paz · 16/03/2016 at 23:37

        Hmm maybe simpkin

paz86 · 16/03/2016 at 12:12

which 3 do i go with between bartel, b.smith, yeo, rich and laird. As my D2, D3 AND D4

What are people's thoughts on Kade Simpson???

    Dee · 16/03/2016 at 12:35

    better and cheaper options out there IMO….. I'm big on Houli, I reckon he'll have a massive year. So will D. Rich….

    Holty · 16/03/2016 at 14:01

    One of the less risky options out there. He plays a lot of games as well. Im starting him over Laird. People will argue this point but 1 premo year vs a decade of premo years, no real argument in my opinion. You know what your getting with Simpson, there is still a uncertainty with Laird and imo, many others.

Dee · 16/03/2016 at 12:29

with all the off field issues that D. Martin is going through, I'm considering not starting with him but instead replacing him with a S. Gray, A. Hall or even a J. Steele…. and also is Liberatore seriously a lock? thoughts please community….

Dee · 16/03/2016 at 13:53

D. Rich, B. Smith or JJ?

    Derek · 16/03/2016 at 14:26

    Rich then smith

Derek · 16/03/2016 at 14:24

I've gone back to plan A, it worked well last year and will let me sleep well at night.

Shaw, Bartel, McGovern, Rich, BSmith, Dea (Hartley, Collins)

Fyfe, Ablett, Pendlebury, Rockcliff, Libba, BCrouch, Mills, Kerridge (Gresham, Phillips, Davies)

NicNat, Lobbe (Wyatt)

Dusty, Wingard, Barlow, Wells, McCarthy, Petracca (Brown, McDon-T)

    Derek · 16/03/2016 at 14:32

    I may swing Brown to defence and put a bargin rookie on field in defence and upgrade Phillips to McCaffer

      Dee · 16/03/2016 at 15:04

      you're gonna leave B. Kennedy or Oliver out?

        Derek · 16/03/2016 at 15:33

        McCaffer will do better than both

Liam · 16/03/2016 at 16:43

MITCH DUNCAN! What are your thoughts about this lad sitting around M5 community? primed for a break out? or would i be wiser to go with the likes of Ollie Wines?

@dandabombers · 16/03/2016 at 17:20

Long time listener, first time poster!
After about 30+ drafts, 100 versions of revision
I'm gonna lay all my cashews on the line.

Now don't get me wrong, I sit here and still have my doubts about this team as i believe 2-3 mid-pricers will fall well short of the sacred 10-20 points per game rise.
But without quite large and esquisite cashew's which grow wild in my backyard. I believe supercoach glory is but a far and distant dream.
So here it is……..
Def
JJ, Sutcliffe, Bugg, McKenzie, Weitering, Dea
Bench- Hartley, McDon-Tip
Mid
Fyfe, Danger, Berries, Treloar, Libba, Lonergan, Steele,
Mills
Bench- Oliver, Parish, B-Ken
Rucks
Goldy, Gawn
Bench- D.Currie
Fwd
Barlow, S.Gray, A.Hall, Wells, Milera, Kerridge
Bench- McCarthy, M.Brown

All or nothing this year.
No cash in bank bar a few pennies.

    Big balls · 16/03/2016 at 18:15

    Goldy down to a Martin or nic Nat and bug up to a shaw or 500k defence option

Gamer · 16/03/2016 at 17:48

A good defence option for 360k or less !!!!! ?????

oldmate65 · 16/03/2016 at 20:17

Is Menadue a good option? or are there better options for about his price
thanks community

Rabbits16 · 16/03/2016 at 20:53

Biggest thing for me in previous years was the amount of injuries and trades. Would it be smart to avoid fyfe and more importantly ablett? Any other suggestions on injury guysbto avoid?

Rabbits16 · 16/03/2016 at 20:54

Ps jock your my new man crush.

Nick · 16/03/2016 at 21:54

Libba vs graham vs matt crouch vs Brad crouch vs de goey

Who will average the most and make the best stepping stone?

steve · 16/03/2016 at 22:06

was in the middle of a draft and the supercoach site crashed ffs!

Vinsta44 · 16/03/2016 at 22:51

Any thoughts on team?

Shaw, Houli, Laird, Dea, M Brown (Ess), M Hartley (Broad, Adams)

Danger, Pendles, Hannebury, Gaff, Rocky, B Crouch, C Mills, Oliver (Gresham, Petracca, Keays)

Martin, Jacobs (Grimley)

Barlow, Franklin, Greene, Wells, B Kennedy, Kerridge (Menadue, McDonald-Tipa)

Haven't gone for Fyfe – not sure he can do more than what he did last year, possible back issues and may spend time fwd

No GAJ – went against my golden rule of never picking players without much of a pre-season last year and it cost me. Don't trust Rocket and comments he is fine for Round 1 (if he burns in the first few may have to reconsider

No Goldy – a bit expensive for my liking, the top Rucks normally change from year to year and I like Jacobs durability and consistent scoring.

Sean · 16/03/2016 at 23:22

Peoples thoughts on Dane rampe?? I believe lekdog picked him to be the Robert murphy of last season

Question is, I get an email that someone commented on one of my comments but I can't work out how to quickly go back to see that comment and reply. Any tips?
