I'm banking the 129 x 2 , only because i can't make my mind up out of Ablett,Danger of Fyfe to put the C on

Deccas

Its a good score and 250 looks good. But Think Dangerfield or fyfe will go big but not sure who. Is it worth the risk?

Moz

I thought Dangerfield would go large last week – gave me 77
I thought Fyfe would go large in week 1 – gave me 61

Bank the 129 mate

Michael

What about GAJ though. GAJ is a very reliable Super Coach super-premo. He is the opnly super-premo i have and the only super-premo i need for now.

Todd

I went danger but goldy holders would mock your 129

Moz

Don't be greedy. 129 is a great score and now I don't have to sweat for the rest of the weekend. I love Robbie Gray

rowdz

I'm not going to be greedy i just wish somebody scored 129

Moz

So i've finally decided to trade out Rocky. My midfield is looking pretty cookie-cutter with:
Parker, Gray, Danger, Libba, Fyfe, Oliver, Menadue, Kerridge, Kaeys & ROCKY.

Looking to bring in a POD. Thougths on:

– Dusty Martin?
– Blicavs?
– Treloar?

They're all looking pretty good, who do people think will be a season keeper?

Wayno76

Blicavs has been reliable and good ruck loop option aswell

bAps

Dusty is hardly a POD haha

bUCKET__

Wines won't get 8 clangers every week, nor will he always handpass so much. Slow start and would obviously like more tons, but I'm not worried.

The benchmark

Kicks to handball ratio shocking
8 clangers
4 free kicks against
Effective disposals dismal
And he still knocks me out a 93
I'm sure the people who own wines are not worried, happy to hold πŸ™‚

Matt

Exactly, he's actually played really well in his games but just been a bit unlucky with his scoring. Expect him to knock out a 120 next couple weeks and hit some consistent scoring

@BarronVonCrow

After going with Fyfe in Round 1 and Dangerfield in Round 2 I am locking in Grays score this week.

As for Wines, like bUCKET_ said above, you'd hope he wouldn't get 8 clangers a week, nor have 2/3 of his possessions be handballs. 9 tackles, 6 clearances, 25 possessions and a goal, those are good stats overall, just needs to clean up his ball use (only 60% DE) and stop giving away so many free kicks (4 of his clangers were due to frees against).

So if you own him I'd probably keep him for now and if you don't, watch his price and see if you can't at least get him for par.

Rosco

Same here Barron. Taking Gray's 123. Ablett, Danger and the like may go big but they also may fail. Bit disappointing Gray was scaled DOWN to 123 yet some Essendon players were scaled up. I can't work that out. Surely the best player on the ground shouldn't lose scaling points?

Darth

He was super quiet in the last qtr apart from an early goal

BigHaydos

Hey mate, not sure why you put the C on dangerfield in round two. looking at his track record, he isnt the best at backing up scores with more great scores. normally a heartbeat system with dangerfield.

Aaron

Menadue, Hewitt or Davis on the field?

BigHaydos

Aaron, I would normally say of course Menadue, but they are coming up against a great crows outfit and Davis is versing carlton. Flip a coin between menadue and davis i think bro

Derek

At least you have a choice.

I have Rocky, crouch, Gresham, Keays, Wingard all on the bench this week.

Tophawk

Would that mean you have at least one donut? Rocky, Crouch, Gresham and Keays are all midfielders. Only 3 bench spots for midfielders?

tippa

Derek did you make any trades this week?

Derek

wI'll trade either Gresham or Keays to Paps. Haven't decided yet.

Derek

Was tinkering with idea of Keays/Gresham to Ruggles.

Swing Kerridge to mids and Adams to forwards (don't have a DEF/FWD swing set yet. Plus I am arroused by Ruggles next two games -lions and Essendon

bAps

I wouldn't be excited by that. The cats will smash those two teams, which means the backline won't see much of the ball.

derek

good point

derek

if i was to trade rocky, i would be going to selwood

Shinboner

That's a very narrow minded way to assess the scoring capabilities of a backline. Maybe in 1970 you would be right but if you look at how the Western Bulldogs and Adelaide particularly use there backline offensively there is a massive increase in back men's scores when the team is winning. One way traffic is a thing of the past.

Steve

After a stellar season last year you have a few crack appearing early Derek! Worried?

Derek

yes. But sticking to plan

Tophawk

I am banking Gray's score. Had to wait on Dangerfield last weekend and what a disappointment that was. I can sit back and enjoy the rest of the round now. If Fyfe and Danger both pump out 150's this round, I will be more than happy. OK I will sacrifice 54 points, but I can live with that. Its all about runs on the board.

John

you would only be sacrificing 27 points if someone in your team got 150 by the way.
123+123+150=396
123+150+150=423

Tophawk

I see what you mean there. But I have taken Gray's 123 as VC. (246 points). If Dangerfield who is in my team scores 150 and my opponent also has him but whacked the C on him he would score 300 points. How many points better off would he be? Indeed…..54 points. That was the point I was trying to make about taking Gray's VC score and the potential loss of points if one of the other guys in my side went big and scored 150 and did not have the C on him. Cheers

Phil

You're only sacrifing 27 is they get 150 because you still get there 150 once (just not doubled)
Gray Captain= 123 + 123 + 150 = 396
Fyfe Captain=. 150 + 150 + 123 =423

Marvin

Picked bungcrouch instead of lessgoodbuthealthiercrouch. Do I go crouch to lambert? Can't wait for crouch to a) get healthy and b) wind up and it means I'm playing with menadue on the field this week. Lambert is looking good and at the very least will make some half decent coin. Can't go parish now and have the rest of the rooks bar Hewitt. Talk me out of it

abel

Great names. I'm holding bungcrouch. Hes scoring ok and due to price rise. Imo play menadue or trade elsewhere

Watermoose

I'm also looking to upgrade Rockliff in my midfield.

I'm liking the options of Blicavs or Priddis.

What would people choose? Blicavs is going well but i'm not too sure if I tust him. Is he a reliable player for the whole season?

Derek

Wait a week or two on Priddis, will get cheaper

abel

Agree

siri

I m taking gray's score

Tophawk

That is the sensible thing to do. By doing so, you know where you are at, and can chill out for the rest of the round. I am mentally prepared for one of my other players to go huge, but there will be no regrets on my part.

@RealGreekMamba

Who is more of a must have?
Hall or Kennedy

I'm going to offload Rocky to one of the two but I can't decide. Going to Kennedy means one extra trade but the cash is tempting

Hawks

I think Hall, he looks like a keeper and top 6 forward this season

tippa

I'm being greedy and not taking Gray's score. The questions is who do I risk? Pendles, Fyfe, Gaz, Danger?

rayza

Play which one Hewitt, Menadue or Mills for last midfield spot.

FootyFanatic

Mills

rayza

Cheers:-)

Youngy

Ye Mills for sure

medadsson

Ok, I am a risk taker … I am passing on Gray's score and going C on Dangerfield – call it greed, call it stupditity but I call it Extreme Supercoach πŸ™‚

Tophawk

In that movie Wall Street, Michael Douglas famously said; "Greed is good". That was a classic.

Hope it comes off for you. If it does, it will be a buzz alright. If not, no wallowing on here come Sunday arvo!

Cheers mate

medadsson

Great film, classic line. I believe Michael Douglas studied Daffy Duck's method acting … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PjB9jlDvUNM πŸ™‚

Shake n bake

Really not worth the risk, even if your capt scores 140 that's only 17 more pts. Unless you think that 17pts might get you over the line. But im so not taking the risk. Good luck.

medadsson

Gotta roll the dice and string out my opponents, make the game last the whole weekend πŸ™‚

Phil

Think I'll take it. I don't think Danger is a reliable Captain option, he is better used as a VC. Ablett & Fyfe are better C options, I'd usually roll the dice on these 2 with any score under 130 I just feel they're not flying like they have in previous years. I think 120 is the new VC lock score.

hedski

Vc'd robbie and think I'll be greedy and give danger a crack at the big c. At the cattery against the lions cats will be out for blood after last week.
Here's a poser community – tippas 71 vs spudlow?
Tippas 71 vs mills? Also have menadue e'd on mid bench so will get a look at him before mills plays aswell. Cheers

Phil

I'd take Barlow.

hedski

Thinking that phil surely he's due

Alex

Mennadue or Davis on field?

Cheers community

Youngy

Mennadue 100%

I N Pieman

Happy with Dea last night. Tipa fun to watch. Pooh Brown is exactly that. Hoping Gary scores 180 & puts non owners to the sword

Average Joe

Not just non-owners but also people that don't put the C on him

Youngy

Putting my faith in Goldy this week with the C.

LEKD0G

Not a bad choice, historically scores well against them but does Gawn stop him?

DadSmasher

Don't do it youngy. 3 games gone and no ruck has passed 95 ruck scores are down for all games with the new rules. Ruck scores have gone from M4 comparable back to D3 comparable

Youngy

Now that Rich is out I will beable to take Abletts score πŸ™‚

@TheNoLanguage

Hope you kept the faith in Goldfish?!

LEKD0G

VC on Parker or Mitchell and C on Fyfe

Kim

Supposedly coginlio might tag Parker I read, that's who went onto danger last week at 1/4 time and we all know how that turned out. Just some food for thought lekdog.

Holty

dont risk parker, go mitchell lek. Mitvhell wont get tagged. Parker may.

Davonaise

Football πŸ™‚

Average Joe

VC on Gaz and C on Goldy

Luke

Like it. Doing the same with Ablett to Dangerfield. Will be just my luck Ablett scores 150+ then Dunkley gets a late call up and can't loophole it.

Kim

Which is why I picked goetz for Bulldogs in ruck, won't play at all this year and besides next week play late sat arvo, sat night and Sunday's for first 10 or so weeks. It pays to look carefully at the draw. Why so many went what for Coll is beyond me. Or the Gold Coast cheap ruck, means u can't loophole if u have Ablett. Very silly. Like I said apart from next week I can loophole either danger or Ablett and get 2 shots at capt every week. Very handy indeed.

Kim

Wyatt I meant, stupid auto correct!

Southern S

I went with Melbourne's max king due to an abundance of Sunday and Saturday games too. Plus he may step in if max gawn gets injured.

DadSmasher

Wise words KimmyD but the LabRats will still beat you by 300pts in the Hell league:-)

Bob

Should I get R.Laird or JJ in? I feel both are solid picks.

Shinboner

I think you'll want the both by the end of the year, I've got them both but I think laird is probably the one you would get in 1st

hedski

A little nagging voice keeps telling me to be conservative and takes grays vc score.
(Another one is saying crack a beer and go mow the lawns, I'll listen to that one for now πŸ˜‰ )

Davonaise

2nd option sounds good

The Ranger

Captains Score Rules
Rule 1 – 120 and below you don't take.
Rule 2 – 130 and above you do take.
Rule 3 – Anything in between is a nightmare and although there is no hard and fast rule that can be applied it is essential that beer plays a part in your decision making process,

Rick Grimes

Sage advice. I'll get a head of steam up and see where it takes me

hedski

Very true ranger. I've mown lawns and clicked my fourth.
Still no closer to deciding. Have till suns game tonight to decide between gray gaz or danger. Aargh
Should be a bit more lubed up and decisive by then

Davonaise

Crouching one wins the tap using his fly kick jump technique, ball lands into the arms of BVC who gets tackled hard by two players but some how squeezes out a clean handball to Patch who then passes to Reynolds these old legs still have some pace as he runs to the edge of the centre square.
Lek Dog Running along side him absolutely cleans up a would be tackler WHAT A BUMP!!! Reyonolds faints a hand pass to Higgo but thought better of it knowing Higgo would probably do some mathematics around the 50 metre arc, so Reynolds spears a fast and low kick….wwwwoooaaahhh it has found the safe hands of WAYNO!!!

This is a lad you want to be taking shot right now and with 11 goals 3 behinds so far after 2 rounds he looks set to kick his 12th……kick looks good very good, Never any doubt straight through the the big ones.

Brookesy

No loophole option this week, am tossing up between Ablett and Fyfe. Think Ablert is more safe but Has the added attraction of being a unique in all my league matchups. Thoughts, community?

medadsson

Ablett at home vs Carlton or Fyfe in underperforming midfield vs West Coast … I'd go Ablett.

Luviboy1

Menadue not looking good. Taking Dunkley off the field currently. Hewett or Davis to come on?

hedski

Looks like I'll be leaving mills on.
Out of those I liks davis at metricon vs carlton.
Might snag a couple.
Hmm mills or davis now?

Luviboy1

Have to play both unfortunately. Like the look of Davis.

Derek

Only 33 ball ups in first half of pies game. Consistently down 20-30% from last year.

Monkey_Magic

Any ideas on average stoppages last year compared to this year Derrick?
Working on a blockbuster trade! πŸ˜‰

Derek

Last year average was about 90

Derek

69 ball ups for the whole game

Derek

80 in the Crows game

Kyle Llewellyn

Hey guys, not sure whether to throw the captain on gavin abblett or tim rockliff? Help much appreciated

Crowmagnon

pretty sure Tim is not playing, so go with Gavin.

Northernsoul74

Confirmed Daniel Rich out for tomorrow.

hedski

Come on derek trade him to jj ya know ya wanna!! πŸ˜‰
The sc gods are not being kind mate

Derek

Testing times.

Not even Hawthorn in 2014 had to go through this many problems

Staying the course

Pjay

NO WAY! Where did you see that?
That's all I need after menadue & papleys performance

Youngy

Crap forgot to switch Rich into mid so I don't get browns score of 38….

Westy

Montagna is looking good today.

Holty

ummm, im not even a Collingwood supporter but what is Buckley doing. FFS, put your best players in the middle and win some clearences. Pendlebury has played this whole 3rd quarter in the backline. Why?

Northernsoul74

He's played all season there. He only tonned up the other week due to a load of cheap posessions behind the ball.

Holty

this is true but what im getting at is what is Buckley doing? It obviously not working for them. They are getting smashed out of the centre so put there best players in there and start winning some ball.

Duffer

He’s a solid defensive rebounder something that Collingwood lack a bit. They have an abundance of midfielders but not enough good defensive ball users, so Buckley made the call to move pendle to that job.

SCaddict

Maybe protecting those bruised/cracked ribs? I'm not watching the game btw so merely guessing.

Anyway I didn't like the way things were trending for Pendles output this season so I ditched him for Gray last week somewhat controversially.

Alex

I have Riewoldt had 71 at HT and finished with 73

Davonaise

Pendlebury owners getting burnt this year

Luviboy1

Buckley the idiot waits 3qts to put him in the midfield!

magpie4ver

Yeah it sucks but Pendels is a little banged up with the ribs I guess?

Holty

true but if he is so banged up, why risk him in the middle when the game is over. Pendles in the middle in the last quarter was the only time in the 2nd half Collingwood looked dangerous. Guess its so annoying for me as i have him at present

Hawks

No captain loophole available to me because I'm not taking Menadues score.

Who should I choose as captain?

Ablett
Fyfe
Dangerfield

Help please, favoring Ablett at the moment

SCaddict

I'd go with the bald genius. Yep Menadue has mucked me around too so I now need to go Hanners as VC and Gaz as C.

MaccasMarvels

I don't have Ablett so my toss up was between Fyfe and Danger and I'm going with Danger……. 1st game at his new home against weak-ish opposition. Fingers crossed. Reckon Fyfe might just carry on from last week too, so it really was a flip the coin job.

hedski

So this will be genius or stupidity but I've benched mills in favour of davis. Click

Dom VB

Wouldn't be too happy bout that

Southern S

Like your style I had the same feeling and actually played Davis over menadue and hewett. Sure I only made a few extra points but it's nice to know when your hunches are correct. Knew Richmond would get beaten by crow's convincingly so menadue was never even a thought honestly. Already had mills on field for injured b crouch.

hedski

My thinking SS was a mature body (davis)

Rick Grimes

Mills, Hewitt, Papley, 15 points between them at qtr time. Greeeeeat.

Dean

The pap smear is cold as ice now that everyone has him, he could get dropped if he doesn't do something in the second half

Tophawk

Could be a case of a snatch and grab. Grab the 100K and move him on. Has hardly touched it so far.

Derek

Paps is on 1 at half time. Room for improvment

Derek

Hewett on 6

The Ranger

And half an hour ago I was congratulating myself on taking Hewitt over Menadue…

Derek

That was an impressive second half

DadSmasher

1 rookie on field and it's Papley. I feel for anybody who has papley, menadue, brown, hewitt on field. Mitchell is on track for a solid 70 too arrgghh

Tophawk

Menadue on bench- good, brown on bench-good, dont have hewitt-good, Papley on field- his score will be as a donut the way its going. Pathetic.

Mayniac

So – Rich is out? Perfect!
The V on Gas which means I can put the C on Mitchell/Danger

and Rich as the loophole

Nicholas

I dont think rich it out where is your source?

Joel
MaccasMarvels

I won't be on my Pat Malone here, I know that, but bringing Parker in is looking like a solid point scoring decision.

Derek

Parker gets all JPK's handballs.

Tophawk

And lovin it. I am thinking of getting JPK a bit later this season.

Nicholas

So happy i got rid of greene after round 1 knew hed be another griffin

SCaddict

Yep the ole burnman odd rounds, teaser even rounds, Jekyll & Hyde yo yo routine.

Tophawk

Well done mate. Greene is a spud. Must have caught Griffen's disease. Never had him, but still have Barlow. His day of reckoning will start in 20 minutes.

hedski

Same brought in Parker πŸ™‚

Nicholas

Pity ill be taking a donut for rich this week

Southern S

At least it means you won't be totally furious with his performance this week. You've got big plums holding him

Nicholas

Had to get rid of rocky and dunkley and my trades were locked when i realised rich was out and my bench rookies had alrdy played

DadSmasher

Seriously? You don't have any playing def bench players at round 3 wtf

Nicholas

I have two essendon ones that i didnt put emergency on so my bad

Foti186

I put the VC on houli

Southern S

Bravo

hedski

SC Addict and any other true believers out there.
I have forgone robbies vc and my favoured Danger so that I could choose bald baby jeebers and shove it up the heathen judas no gazza.
Also pretty happy atm that I benched mills for Davis hope he turns it on.
Papley came home hard 52 in last half great pity about first half.
I'm on just above 800 with 8 played coming into suns game, happy with that (well amber oiled up too)
How are you trackin community? Cheers

Lazy_Simmo

with ya Hedski ole mate! rolling dice with C on Danger – some flat track action in front of his new adoring fans πŸ˜‰

Lazy_Simmo

will no doubt regret not backing in bald jesus as well tho! the long wait till sunday night..

hedski

Yeah simmo danger will shred I reckon

dognino

1525 with 8 to play . Put the C on the bald genius cos I'm a true believer . Lol. Projected for 2280

hedski

Nice dogninonino. Fingerbang it like cartman.

hedski

1556 8 to go. Jeevers caapitano

SCaddict

Hey Hedski yeah I went Gazza too for C with decent results. Had some major power problems at my place which kind of short circuited my SC plans today.

Ended up not trading Barlow as I wanted to and got off very fortunately by the looks. Really wanted to get JJ in but have no one left to trade for him now other than Bartel but just can't really justify that sideways correction unfortunately.

hedski

Lady luck Barlow was on last legs. He looked good.

Luviboy1

Could be a blessing in disguise!

SCaddict

I doubt it. Should have just made my trades at the start of the round rather than leaving it to the last minute.

Hopefully his would've been replacement JJ doesn't go off t'row.

MaccasMarvels

I'm not watching the game but the stats are showing Barlow must be playing much better than weeks 1 & 2. I kept him and chucked him on the field. How long can I hold my breath!!!! Come on son.

Papley sat on my bench which is also a Tick at the moment……. Menadue on the field less so, by the length of the Flemington straight!!!

SCaddict

Yes I'm very lucky that Barlow posted a decent score. Power was off for 14 hours arrrgggh!

Still it has mucked up my JJ acquisition plans so will have to look at getting him in next week now at an elevated price. I know first world problems huh! πŸ™‚

CoachDamo

That could be a blessing in disguise Addict. I'm going to trade in JJ today, but I'm worried that the Hawks will sit on him and not let him rack up 30 touches. He might struggle with a tag, score 55 and you'll be grateful for the power outage!

CoachDamo

Going to re-think JJ now Addict?

Kang

I felt comfortable bringin in JJ even though I knew the hawks would keep him quiet. He is going to be a keeper at the end of the season and his price now is the cheapest you'll ever see him.

SCaddict

Good chance I'll still bring him in. Has only gone up $35K and Doggies have a nice run coming up with Blues and Lions up next.

It probably won't be at Barlow's expense though. If Crouch doesn't get up again this week he'll be the likely trade bait.

But will explore all the options this Thursday night including just holding on to my current squad.

Holty

lol. just looked at sc scores. Fyfe with 3 handballs, 1 tackle and a free against and on 25points. I sometimes wonder if sc have favorite players. Cant complain though as if he keeps scoring like that ill be happy as ill bring him in next week
