RD4: The Heroes. The Villains. The Damned.

Published by Jock on



That was the general theme of Round 4, with mediocre scores seemingly the flavour of the month. Most of the Community felt the wrath of the SuperCoach gods in one way or another.

There were plenty of high­scoring players, it was just a pity not many of them were in our actual teams. It was all very depressing.

But on a positive note, CoachKings went absolutely off with plenty happening across 40 venues throughout SA and Victoria. Highlights included one bloke, Chris, who made the mistake of taking his Missus along for the ride.

She promptly outscored him.


The Heroes

Nat “Teen Wolf” Fyfe (141 SC)

The rest of his side is crap, but there is no doubting the majestic genius of this man. Has dripped only 12K from his starting price and won’t get much lower. Those hoping to pounce on him for a big price drop will be disappointed. A SuperCoach beast.

Zach Merrett (123 SC)

Has started the season like a man possessed and now looks a must­have in our forward lines. Currently averaging 116 and has been very consistent so far. Can see him smashing up Collingwood on Anzac Day, too.

Jarrad Waite (129 SC)

How long can we continue to ignore this hulking forward for? Is currently the overall top­scorer in SuperCoach and has been absolutely dominating. Will suck plenty in, especially with a Steven May­less Gold Coast in his next match. But in the words of Admiral Ackbar…


Honourable mentions – Luke Shuey (150 SC), Pearce Hanley (148 SC), Alex Rance (146 SC), Sam Mitchell (141 SC), Callan Ward (137 SC), David Zaharakis (129 SC), Dan Hannebery (129 SC).

The Villains

Matt Priddis (late withdrawal)

Big Prid hurt his owners when he withdrew late on Friday night. Against a pathetic Richmondside, he would have been like a pig in mud and no doubt would have knocked out a massive score. Instead his owners had to turn to the likes of Ryan Davis or Connor Menadue to save their sides, both of which were disappointing.

Robbie Gray (74 SC)

Was very frustrated throughout Port’s diabolical performance. To add insult to injury, could be rubbed out this week for a hit on Callan Ward behind play. Never stopped trying but just couldn’t get going. Still a gun. LATEST.. $1000 fine.. FREE TO PLAY. *fist pump*

Tom Mitchell (71 SC)

Lured many in after a stellar opening three rounds, but the bubble had to burst at some point. Battled away manfully, but just wasn’t at his best. Will bounce back, however.

The Redeemers

Tobias Greene (110 SC)

If we are following current trends, he is due for another crap score this week. For his owners’ sake, lets hope it doesn’t happen. Had 27 touches and six tackles in a dominant GWS side. But can he back it up?

Callum Mills (84 SC)

Put in his best performance of the year including a stellar last quarter against the Crows. Looks to be hitting his straps. Kudos to those who held him.

Daniel Rich (114 SC)

Helped inspire his side to a famous victory against Gold Coast. Played primarily through the midfield, which would excite his owners. Watch his role when Rockliff and Beams return, though.

The Damned

Jason “Hamstring” Johannisen (91 SC)

Was absolutely killing it before he did his hammy while kicking a monster 55­metre goal. Looks to be out for an extended period, meaning his owners will be required to execute a forced trade this week. Pity.

Tom “Papsmear” Papley (24 SC)

Was utterly disgusting. How can you be so good in the first two rounds and then so bad in the next two? He played almost a full game and was a bloody trainwreck. What’s worse, many people, myself included, traded him in and played him on the field after his strong start, only to have been rewarded with scores of 50 and 24. Disgraceful.

Sam “Inefficiency” Gray (51 SC)

Has bled 59K from his starting price and is driving his owners to drink. Only 16 touches. Shit efficiency again. Those who selected him over Zach Merrett at a similar price at the start of the season would be absolutely kicking themselves.

Deccas · 18/04/2016 at 11:36

Always waiting Monday for this to come out, Good again Carl.

Papley has a BE of 62 and is scoring like a man who plays 1 quarter. Does that mean a trade? If so who to downgrade to? And is using 2trades this week, Trent MCKenzie up to Rance and Papley down a waste or good. Leaves me with 24.

Thoughts Jock and Community!

    Boltons Blues · 18/04/2016 at 11:48

    Papley down to Byrne Jones via Adams DPP
    then JJ to either Docherty or Rance, not sure yet

      Cman · 18/04/2016 at 19:41

      how do you do this? Not sure about the dpp tactic. i have Adams down back and Pap up forward. How do i tade Pap out while keeping adams?

        Michael C. · 18/04/2016 at 20:09

        Click the T for trade on Papley. Then in the trade screen, click the S for sub next to Adams. This will move him into the forward line. Then choose your backman to trade in. Simple enough?

    guest · 18/04/2016 at 16:56

    Do you guys know if the captain loophole works ?
    was going to go VC sam mitchel friday night and if he scores well the do my non playing captain either kaeyes or grimley

      Patch · 18/04/2016 at 23:01

      G'day mate! You select a vice-captain, if you want to take their score, swing a non-playing player onto the ground (say, Grimely) and put the C on them. Make sure you put your Emergency on your R2 so you still get their score. And voila, the captain's loophole!

Sarah · 18/04/2016 at 11:39

How can my team go from scoring 2412 one week, then 1882 the next???!!! Disgusting score. One of those hurt by Priddis's late out and just generally awful scores from those playing.

After banking cash from trading out Brad Crouch last week, I'm trading Milera to Byrne-Jones and upgrading Papley to Ward. First upgrade. Bang Bang.

    Confused · 18/04/2016 at 11:46

    How do you manage these trades Sarah? Players don't play respective SuperCoach positions? A forward for a defender? And a forward for a mid?

      Sarah · 18/04/2016 at 11:49

      Milera to Byrne-Jones (subbing Mitch Brown to the forward bench)
      Papley to Ward (subbing Ben Kennedy to the forward line as I had him sitting in the midfield)

      When you trade players, you can more dual position players around the field to trade into other lines if you want.

    Vindude · 18/04/2016 at 11:48

    Similar feelings here too Sarah, from 2,442 to 2003 – glad I at least cracked 2K. Everyone has had pretty average scores I reckon with the carnage the weekend had to offer.

      Sarah · 18/04/2016 at 11:51

      I've slipped almost 10k in the overall rankings 🙁

        SCaddict · 18/04/2016 at 12:33

        Yes why couldn't I get your 1882 rather than being on the receiving end of your 2412 last week. 🙁

        There's a real log jam in the rankings right now with only a couple hundred points separating maybe 15,000 teams. The result of so many of us having such similar starting sides.

        So have a mare one weekend and your ranking will go into free fall but on the flip side pull out a blinder out from among the pack and your ranking will soar in just one round.

          Teampiz · 18/04/2016 at 12:51

          I had a mediocre score of 2129 and went from 1238 overall to 521. A jump of 717 spots. There must be some garbage sides out there.

            SCaddict · 18/04/2016 at 13:00

            2129 was a pretty good score last weekend with all the carnage and spudliness out there.

            But to more than half your ranking in one just one week you have to be well pleased with that. Being inside the top 1000 is always a nice feeling.

          Sarah · 18/04/2016 at 13:11

          Luck of the draw I guess!!

          Nathan · 19/04/2016 at 05:40

          Same- I went from 3800 to 501 with a score of 2250

    gator59 · 18/04/2016 at 11:51

    Same here Sarah 2463 one week sitting in top 300 in SC League then pump out a crap 1976,,, I knew when Priddis with drew it was going to be a crap round!!

      Sarah · 18/04/2016 at 11:54

      I had hopes that it might be ok! That Davis might give me a decent score in the 60-80 range given he was only playing Brisbane… I feel like running away and hiding after putting out a score like that!! I can't even look at it.

        gator59 · 18/04/2016 at 11:59

        We just gotta keep pulgging away and hope the SC Gods take pity on us.. Davis and bloody Papsmear bloody shit.. welcome

    Marco_Polo94 · 18/04/2016 at 12:31

    2539 to 2005, really disappointing after cracking top thousand last week. I'm considering a similar approach but bringing in DBJ this week and Dusty next week or week after. Little disappointed i traded in Parker over Ward last week, but i think in the long run Parker will continue his stellar form.

    derek · 18/04/2016 at 12:32

    i look at my team (without Lobbe) and think to myself that it isn't that bad (still have Rocky on bench).

    not much we can do when Wingard, BSmith & Blicavs score 60's or less.

      tuxCS · 18/04/2016 at 12:44

      What does your team look like Derek?

        derek · 18/04/2016 at 15:59

        looks like alot of teams.

        Laird, Bartel, Rich, BSmith, Dea, Adams, (Tippa, Hartley)

        Fyfe, Ablett, Danger, Pendles, Rocky, Mills, Kerridge, Kennedy (Davis, Gresham, Menadue)

        NicNat, Blitz (Wyatt)

        Dusty, Wingard, Barlow, Wells, McGovern, McCarthy (Paps, Brown)

          tuxCS · 18/04/2016 at 16:08

          What made you bite the bullet and get rid of Lobbe?

            Steeeve · 18/04/2016 at 16:59

            He is a potato.

              Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 18:03

              Just checked his stats, already dropped 40k and set to drop again. Round score of 53 he must be the worst performing ruck in the comp.

              Benjamima Puddleduck · 18/04/2016 at 22:56

              A Potato would score more

                Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 23:19

                Port would've been better off giving a kipfler a 4 year contract extension.

            Derek · 19/04/2016 at 12:51

            He scored 50 against Leuy!

            My entire plan was built on Lobbe and Port crushing Essendon, Lobbe's price gets a kick along allowing me an upgrade to Goldy after week 7.

            He just isn't any good.

            I went to Blitz and he pumped out a 50 against Essendon as well!

              Southern S · 19/04/2016 at 15:16

              Luenberger is a good ruckman that just can't shake his injuries and bad form. He's not as mobile as some either but he is majorly under rated.

              32 hitouts vs Nicholls 24
              16 hitouts vs Gawn 31
              33 vs Lobbe 27
              25 vs Smith 10/Stanley 10/Blics 5

              You could say he has 3 wins in the ruck there and only lost to Gawn who is top level.

              For some reason because luen doesn't score great for SC and plays for essendon people think that he's not competitive. I guess he does lack hit outs to advantage but so do many of the ruckmen.

      Paul · 18/04/2016 at 15:58

      Rockliff back this week

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 18/04/2016 at 12:45

    Think I got u by 4 what a shocker. Cant believe looking at my team it could score that? As I said in an earlier post Friday night set me back 200 in one game and it just kept going from there. My two big upgrade trades gray and houli dooly had a shocker along with the Chad and well u get the picture. Nothing went right pretty much all my pods failed and the others no better.

    Enough to drive a man to drink

      Sarah · 18/04/2016 at 13:13

      It certainly drove me to drink!!

    Shake n bake · 18/04/2016 at 14:47

    Hey Sarah after those 2 trades how many will you have left?

      Sarah · 18/04/2016 at 14:54

      25 left. I've used more than I would've liked at this stage of the year. Hoping to hold for a week or two after this week, but that'll come down to team selections and injuries.

    guesty · 18/04/2016 at 16:42

    i dropped paply (got byrne -jones the new defender cash cow) – moved mendu to forward and then used my 380k in the bank to upgrade paps to sammy mitchel into the mid

    Shlok · 18/04/2016 at 18:35

    Those are the exact same trades I'm thinking of sarah, hopefully ward will deliver the goods

    Falcon · 19/04/2016 at 12:38

    I feel ya pain
    I dropped 8k spots in one week
    Still in to 10k but now heaps of work to go
    But before this week id only used 1 trade
    Priddis out and i for some reasom had mccarthy onfield instead of McGovern so lost 60 points as mccarthy didnt play

Vindude · 18/04/2016 at 11:46

Thanks Carl.
Crap round to say the least, with Priddis out and Papley on field with Tippa on the bench. Anyways, still in the top 1% so will not give up just yet.

Although, I’m in a dilemma and would appreciate some assistance so please HELP:
JJ to DBJ and Sam Gray to Z.Merret (left over 250K) OR
JJ to Biggs and Sam Gray to Buddy (left over 15K).

Sam gray has to go unfortunately, given him three chances to redeem himself.
Thoughts appreciated community.

    tuxCS · 18/04/2016 at 12:09

    Not sold on Biggs, although it would make sense that his scoring capacity would be higher with Murphy and JJ out for extended periods. I'm also not sold on Buddy, but he seems to be playing decently.

    Sarah · 18/04/2016 at 12:10

    I don't like Biggs as an option, he's not yet proven. Don't miss out on the multiple defensive bubble boys this week. Upgrading Sam Gray may have to wait a week.

    Northernsoul74 · 18/04/2016 at 13:07

    Biggs is going to be my PoD hopefully. Safest bet is to go JJ to a Rance or Gibson.

    Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 14:02

    Option 1.

JamiesNinjas13 · 18/04/2016 at 11:49

Great post Big boy Carl.
Community, which one: Jelwood or Sloane?

    Vindude · 18/04/2016 at 12:02

    Sloane based on what he did against a quality side like the swans – was absolutely tremendous! Jelwood just hasn't shown his class just yet for some reason ? Maybe cause of the Danger factor is affecting his output ?

    Vinny · 18/04/2016 at 12:06

    I have Selwood but reckon It's 50/50. Toss a coin.

    derek · 18/04/2016 at 12:37

    I have Sloane in my top 10 mids. Only reason i didn't start with him was the Crows tough draw and the no dangerfield effect. Gun.

    for those who missed Parker, get on Sloane

      JamiesNinjas13 · 19/04/2016 at 10:19

      derek do you know why he was under performing in the first 3 rounds? slow start to the season? less inside mid time? niggles?

        Yoey · 19/04/2016 at 10:39

        had zero preseason. still working his way up. if you dont have another geelong mid (danger/duncan) then recommend getting him in. not many teams have him and he'll finish strong

Vinny · 18/04/2016 at 12:05

Who has best JS out of Ruggles, Byrne-Jones and Wagner (Melb)?

    derek · 18/04/2016 at 12:39

    i don't like Geelong Rookies. They traditionally have stop-start seasons. Look at McCarthy.

    Port have some injury problems so would be worried about when players start coming back, but Bryne-Jones is a good player

      Spifflicator · 19/04/2016 at 09:19

      McCarthy is a 5th year player, word is he was injured and got the week off. Didn't play in the VFL either.

        CaPtKaOs · 19/04/2016 at 11:19

        McCarthy with his injury history needs a bit more management than the average player. Same applies to Menzel. I can see the Geelong small forwards getting rotated a fair bit this year

    Steeeve · 18/04/2016 at 21:59

    Port's season has been a disaster so far. The axe will fall, but I can't see them dropping DBJ any time soon. He's been one bright spot.

      Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 23:16

      The axe needs to fall somewhere in the coaches box.

Hferg · 18/04/2016 at 12:08

554k to upgrade to a mid, should i get someone like Shuey or Gaff or wait another week and pick up priddis who will likely go down with a BE of 167?

    Mac · 18/04/2016 at 12:22

    Selwood, Shiel, Hanley for a POD

      guest · 18/04/2016 at 16:45

      if you can – wait untill round 7-8. luke hodge will be 450k after his next BE 199 and 140

    SCaddict · 18/04/2016 at 12:36

    Bit of an Eagles fan hey?!

    Think there may be some better options out there if you consider all 18 teams imho.

    derek · 18/04/2016 at 12:40

    Priddis missed last week and Shuey & gaff (and Yeo) had a field day. Unless priddis is going to be out for a few weeks, i wouldn't get to excited about their scores.

      Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 18:00

      Yep, the Shuey score could prove to be an anomaly.

tom · 18/04/2016 at 12:14

What trades do I make? Suggestions appreciated. 4k in the bank.

Shaw, Laird, Rich, Weitering, Dea, Adams,Tippa, Brown
Fyfe, Danger, Ablett, Pendles, Gray, Libba, Mills, Kerridge, Menadue, Davis, Hewett
Goldstein, Martin, Wyatt
Hall, Barlow, De Goey, Wells, Kennedy, Mccarthy, Papley, Petracca

    Sarah · 18/04/2016 at 12:17

    I'd go Papley to Byrne-Jones (moving Tippa to the forward line where you could play him on the field.
    That's probably the only trade I'd make for your team this week. Bank the cash for a future upgrade.
    But that's just me.

      tom · 18/04/2016 at 12:20

      Thanks Sarah, what you think of Ben Kennedy, high breakeven as well? Move or hold?

        Marco_Polo94 · 18/04/2016 at 12:32

        Hold, he will pick his scoring up again.

        Sarah · 18/04/2016 at 13:18

        Kennedy is one big game away from another period of growth. He's not a priority to trade out. Averaging over 80. Keep him a while longer yet.

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 18/04/2016 at 12:48

      I think that trade is going to be a popular one this week.

      bUCKET__ · 18/04/2016 at 13:31

      A couple of Byrne's are looking like good downgrade options this week. Gunna take both!

      Like the job security of Ciaran, I'm going to back him in as a corrective for Hewett. Looked the goods against the doggies, got smashed in the face a couple of times and kept going. Looks like a better user of the ball than Ruggles and fewer players knocking down the door to push him out.

      I starting behind the pack by missing a few of the better rookies (no Parish / Gov Jr / Weitering in my squad), so need to take a couple of calculated risks for making $$ if I'm a chance to move forward.

    Time For Action · 18/04/2016 at 15:56

    Barlow and Papley to Byrne-Jones and Z Merrett.

Ben · 18/04/2016 at 12:28

Hero: Shuey
Villian: Me, for putting the VC on Nic Nat instead of Shuey. Also Danger (C)

Clarky · 18/04/2016 at 12:31

Can someone please tell me how Breakeven works? I know the basics as in if a player reaches breakeven, he makes money, but how is the rise or drop in price worked out?

    choppers · 18/04/2016 at 13:30

    This is pretty close….


    Player’s Price divided by 5140 X 3 minus (sum of previous 2 rounds)

      Adam · 18/04/2016 at 13:53

      good work Choppers… think if you change 5140 to 5100 you will be bang on….

Tommy · 18/04/2016 at 12:34

Who to trade JJ to, Docherty or Rance?

    tuxCS · 18/04/2016 at 12:46

    I quite like docherty however Rance is a good option, flip a coin and pray.

    bAps · 18/04/2016 at 19:09

    Docherty 100%

    BKW · 19/04/2016 at 12:29

    I like them both.. Rance will have lower and higher scores, Docherty probably more consistent.

Banksie700 · 18/04/2016 at 12:45


JJ to Bryne-Jones and then wines to ward? with 400k left to upgrade mills and oliver to premos next round

    Marco_Polo94 · 18/04/2016 at 12:47

    Wouldn't trade Wines

      Banksie700 · 18/04/2016 at 12:51

      he is doing shit and ropping in value… who else would you suggest i trade?

        Marco_Polo94 · 18/04/2016 at 13:00

        You just have to ask yourself why you selected Wines in the first place. Wines was apart of a team that got absolutely smashed all over the ground on the weekend, and the only reason he didn't score well was his disposal efficiency. I think you just have to keep faith a little longer, he's more than capable of averaging 100+ by season's end.

        And you don't have to make trades every round, only when necessary. At this stage of the season people should mostly only be trading LTI players, and getting rookies on the bubble. It has been a disappointing start for Ollie, no doubt.. but generally in this game faith in premiums is rewarded.

          NutSack · 20/04/2016 at 00:29

          hey bro- asking why he chose wines in the first place is irrelevant because wines is playing crap. The season is already 20% gone buddy… wait another 2 weeks and it is 33% over… kapish???

        Ethan017 · 18/04/2016 at 13:07

        Nobody bank the cash and upgrade one of your rookies later

        Holty · 18/04/2016 at 13:15

        I have Smurf Banksie but not trading him so I wouldnt trade Wines. Smurf (just like Wines) were selected in our sides for a reason and I'm sticking fat with mine. I always look at it as they are 1 game away from turning their seasons around. I have faith in Smurf that he will recapture his 110+ average. No reason Wines wont do the same. If you have lost all faith in Wines though, Ward would be a great selection. Is it worth a trade though?

          Banksie700 · 18/04/2016 at 14:58

          Mmm im not to sure, i could possibly have 8 top quality mids if i traded this round

            Holty · 18/04/2016 at 15:25

            your choice bud. i just hope you dont run out of trades by seasons end

Andrew · 18/04/2016 at 13:01

Would like to get rid of S Gray but have only $30k in the bank, need help

    SCaddict · 18/04/2016 at 13:08

    Reckon the bubble boy defender Byrne-Jones is a high priority for many coaches this week including Addicts. Bit of an unfortunate name there so I'll call him BJ instead and hopefully he doesn't turn into a burnman ha ha.

    So you could always use Gray to bring him in if you don't have better options by swinging in someone like an AMT or Adams into your forward line to replace Gray.

    Then use the savings to upgrade another failed midpricer to a proper premo or alternatively upgrade another cash cow in the next fortnight.

      Not sure how an acronym for oral is better than Darcy's full name.

Northernsoul74 · 18/04/2016 at 13:12

Hard without seeing your team as can't see what you would do with the cash you make from the downgrade. If JJ was your d4 id be tempted to downgrade. If like me he was D3 then your defense will be very weak downgrading so better of upgrading or going like for like.

    M-J · 18/04/2016 at 20:55

    I thought I had a good back line. If JJ is d3, who's above him?

    Ciaran Byrne?

      BKW · 19/04/2016 at 12:36

      yep, Byrne is -61 (should be second on that list)

      And Papley should be at the bottom, 62 break even

    Hazey · 18/04/2016 at 22:37

    Wagner from the Dee's?

    Great info BTW, thanks for sharing

      BKW · 19/04/2016 at 12:37

      -51 for Wagner

bUCKET__ · 18/04/2016 at 13:56

Assuming Martin misses a game because of concussion… are fellow Martin-owners going to cop the donut too?

    Ethan017 · 18/04/2016 at 14:02

    Mason Cox not far off a debut if you have him on the bench

    David · 18/04/2016 at 15:17

    Any chance Grimley gets a game this week?….Come on Essendon, do us all a favour…..Don't want a donut at this time of the year and don't want to burn a trade going sideways to Gawn……What should we do Oh wise Community?????

      Ethan017 · 18/04/2016 at 15:49

      Think Grimley rolled his ankle last week, no sign of him in the VFL match report

    Holty · 18/04/2016 at 15:28

    if Martin misses, good chance West might get a game. At least thats a cheap option if anyone was interested. But i would probably just take the donut instead of wasting the trade

    Dan · 18/04/2016 at 15:32

    "BRISBANE Lions ruckman Stefan Martin has passed his first concussion test and is now considered a good chance to play the Western Bulldogs on Saturday night."
    afl.com.au news

      Bomber56 · 18/04/2016 at 19:19

      If he doesn't play and Grimley doesn't play thinking of trading in blicavs or tippit, going along those lines.

    Darcy · 18/04/2016 at 19:29

    Considering downgrading papely, upgrading and underperforming mid pricer then bringing tippet in as a fwd premo but switching him up to ruck just for this week.

Average Joe · 18/04/2016 at 14:00

So many problems to face this week, including S Gray, Crouch, Papley and Hewett. Think I might have to keep Gray, better to have him than a non-playing player. Thoughts

    Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 14:21

    You need to start making moves saving trades is one thing but having lots of donuts is another.

    Steeeve · 18/04/2016 at 17:03

    Hewett considered a chance, was in the best in the NEAFL. So was Zack Jones. So if Dean Towers and Crapley come out, he could be a hold.

Simon · 18/04/2016 at 14:04

Interesting on hearing what trades would you make with this current line-up, $251K in the bank currently:

Shaw, Laird, Johannisen, Adams, Dea, AMT (Brown, Hartley)
Fyfe, Dangerfield, Ablett, Mitchell, Liberatore, Wells, Mills, Davis (Crouch, Menadue, Hewett)
Goldy, Gawn (Cox)
Lynch, Hall, Gray, Kennedy, Kerridge, Papley (Milera, McCarthy)

    derek · 18/04/2016 at 15:53

    have a think about Crouch to Sloane. he had a slow start to the year, but on the weekend he looked pretty good. Didn't get a heap of the ball, but made 10 tackles and he looks really fit and sharp. BE 87, already dropped $37k

    The Mountain · 18/04/2016 at 16:04

    I am hearing that JJ may be out for a while so you should look for a suitable replacement

    Adam · 19/04/2016 at 08:16

    Papley to Byrne Jones (Via AMT)
    JJ to Docherty

Grahame Lebroy · 18/04/2016 at 14:09

I am going Brown to Byrne Jones this week reckon its a solid move even though its minimal cash

    Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 14:15

    Brown's BE is only 16.

      Grahame Lebroy · 18/04/2016 at 14:19

      Reckon its smarter to get byrne jones in, I don't rate Brown

        Big G · 18/04/2016 at 15:11

        I was thinking the same thing. Is there any update on Brown's nose?

          Grahame Lebroy · 18/04/2016 at 15:20

          Not sure about his nose. Another thing we can try if you have a def/mid is trade out R.Davis or Hewitt and get Bryne Jones that way.

          Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 15:38

          On the essendon website match review article it says brown suffered no real damage to his nose. Hold him.

        The Mountain · 18/04/2016 at 16:06

        Move paps out via dpp to bring him in, Brown will make cash for longer and has greater job security and the way paps is playing he might not be in the swans line up for much longer

          Grahame Lebroy · 19/04/2016 at 09:53

          That's a good idea Mountain, Brown may now keep his spot in my team for a week or two longer.

    derek · 18/04/2016 at 15:48

    hold Brown. Squeeze every last drop out of the rookies

      Elmtree · 18/04/2016 at 19:57

      Hi Derek. You seem to know what you are talking about. I have 28 trades and value them, however would you trade O. McDonald to Byrne. I heard that O. McDonald got injured again (head?) and he may struggle to get a game in the senior team for a while. I have AMT on my defence bench. I also have Papley. Your thoughts (and anyone else's) please.

        hedski · 18/04/2016 at 20:53

        Hey elms go with the first one and consider paps to byrne-jones via tippa as has been much discussed. Pretty solid imo

breakevens · 18/04/2016 at 14:13

Thoughts just traded JJ to Byrne-Jones and have 445k in the bank

Def: Laird, Adams, Shaw, Weitering, Dea, Byrne-Jones (Hartley, Ruggles)

Midfield: Danger, Ablett, Ward, Fyfe, Priddis, Libba, Kennedy, Mills (Davis, Keays, Gore)

Ruck: Nic Nat, Gawn (Grimley)

Hall, Zach Merrett, Wells, Kerridge, Tippa, Barlow (Cox, Petracca)

    @leslieboan · 18/04/2016 at 14:46

    I would cut your losses on barlow, trade him out move kennedy to the fwd and bring in a premo mid, maybe parker or hanneberry.

      Ethan017 · 18/04/2016 at 15:26

      Nah Barlow has averaged 94 points last two weeks and has earned the right to keep his spot in my team at the moment
      People have forgotten how good he was

    Adam · 18/04/2016 at 17:21

    Your team is beautiful…. the only weakness i can see is kennedy but other than that …. BEASTLY TEAM

      50_Shades · 18/04/2016 at 17:51

      I think Kennedy is still a hold.

      You could probably do away with Cox up forward and add a premium in there or else maybe hold and see what drama next week brings…

Jacko · 18/04/2016 at 14:15

Would it make more sense to trade JJ to a Bryne-Jones rookie type, or to a Rance or Biggs option?

Wouldn't mind banking the cash, but would leave backline thin with Laird and Shaw as only non-rookies

    SCaddict · 18/04/2016 at 14:24

    Wouldn't worry about it too much especially if it's only for a week or two. Most of the rookie defenders are more than holding their own each weekend and even taking it up to the more expensive midpricers and premos.

    Even supposed elites like Shaw and Houli have delivered a couple of turds already this season. Going light in defence has actually worked out ok so far. I'm looking forward to upgrading to Heater in another fortnight or so once he's more reasonably priced…already dropped $60K with more to come by the looks.

      Jacko · 18/04/2016 at 14:36

      Yeah fair call, so JJ to Byrne-jones and then B.Crouch to a Danger/zaha??

        SCaddict · 18/04/2016 at 14:43

        Sounds good to me. Not sure on Zaka though as he was a much better pick a fortnight ago before his price sky rocketed. However he and Zerrett keep defying their doubters each weekend so who am I to admonish that trade.

        Danger, despite his ups and downs early this season, should still finish the season a top 5 mid so reckon he's worth the extra cash over Zaka myself but you have to make the trades that make most sense to you.

        Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 14:53

        Zaka is hard to ignore, so glad I took the risk on his cheap starting price, he's ranked 8th overall supercoach scorer.

Grahame Lebroy · 18/04/2016 at 14:22

Personally I would be sticking to your structure and going to a Rance type option in even though the extra cash would look good

Dasha · 18/04/2016 at 14:29

I have johanissen, papley, stef martin, sam gray and tommy sheridan, who should i priioritise in getting out of my team

    Grahame Lebroy · 18/04/2016 at 14:31

    JJ if he is out for 3 or more weeks

      Northernsoul74 · 18/04/2016 at 14:51

      Not confirmed but JJ likely a matter of months not weeks.

      breakevens · 18/04/2016 at 16:27

      JJ out for 2-4 MONTHS

    Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 14:51

    As above JJ if out for 3+, next would be Papley, Sam Gray and Sheridan last on your priority list.

    Martin will have scans and you really don't want to trade him out unless forced to.

    Boltons blues · 18/04/2016 at 15:44

    JJ out for 4 months
    Martin passed first concussion test, hold
    Gray and Sheridan go first

    Pom · 18/04/2016 at 19:30

    Just a side thought, JJ wont drop in price this week as he is broken, so if you think papley/SGray/Sheridan will bleed $$ and are therefore more important to trade out, give them the flick this week, then JJ next week.

      Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 20:17

      Sheridan won't bleed much (if anything) with a 75 BE.

      Sam Gray with a 119 will bleed a bit more than likely.

      Papley won't lose much either with a 62 BE but I think he'll be dropped this week anyway.

      Just remember that if something else happens with injuries or something like that next week then you will be stuffed if you keep an injury on the pine, especially a high value player.

        M-J · 18/04/2016 at 20:59

        What did Sheridan score last week??

          Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 21:01


      wayno1313 · 18/04/2016 at 21:41

      The biggest issue isn't losing JJ's cash but his points. He was averaging 105.

Mitchell · 18/04/2016 at 14:40

Need some help this week
Team is
jj shaw simpson weitering dea seedsman amt m.brown
danger fyfe gray libba wines parish mills degoey davis hewitt dunkley
goldy martin cox
hall wells adams zorko kerridge papley menadue mccarthy

my question is should i upgrade jj to another premo or downgrade?
and who should i use my other trade as a upgrade or downgrade? is byrne-jones a must to get in?
i already have 367k in bank

    GreatWhite · 19/04/2016 at 13:41

    You are going to need max cash to upgrade your midfield over coming weeks. Trade Papley out move amt to fwd and bring in b-j or cb. You are going to have one hell of a problem on second Bye round ,particularly in your backline, so you might want to look carefully at options for JJ.

Mister_Spock · 18/04/2016 at 15:06

The pain…traded out Greene to bring in Gray expecting a 50-70 point improvement, only to have that logic turned upside down!

    tuxCS · 18/04/2016 at 16:57

    I'm not trying to come off as a dick here but why would you trade Greene to Gray? They are both having poor seasons.

      Shemmistwarehouse · 18/04/2016 at 17:16

      Wrong gray I assume

      Mister_Spock · 18/04/2016 at 17:35

      The Robbie variety

        tuxCS · 18/04/2016 at 17:42

        Ah, well that would make sense haha, good trade, he'll bounce back next round

          Mister_Spock · 18/04/2016 at 17:47

          Yeah, made the trade for consistency and points during the season and not confident that Toby will deliver, just gotta remember that I suppose

            Benn Wheeler · 19/04/2016 at 12:40

            Gray > Toby by a fair margin….

      josh · 18/04/2016 at 18:18

      Well you are a dick.. And a stupid idiot

        tuxCS · 18/04/2016 at 18:23

        Words hurt Josh 🙁

        Kim · 18/04/2016 at 19:17

        Why bother saying anything at all if it's not helpful josh, you are really though if you think Greene will out score Robbin gray over the whole season. Robbin had a bad game, all the premos will at some stage Fyfe got 61 in the first game, danger 75 in the second week. Robbin will average 110+ at the end of the season so it won't be a bad trade come seasons end mister Spock. And josh, you see to have a very limited vocabulary, with nothing actually constructive to say, so do us all a favour and don't be a keyboard warrior.

          Kim · 18/04/2016 at 19:18

          Meant robbie, didn't realise it auto corrected them all, oops!

            tuxCS · 18/04/2016 at 19:33

            I'm pretty sure he was just joking around Kim, and if he wasn't then i wouldn't waste my team talking to him. He obviously hasn't got many brain cells to rub together if his best insult is calling me a "stupid idiot".

    Phil · 18/04/2016 at 18:05

    It sucks but don't sweat on that one, over the course of the year that will be one of our better trades you made.

lachie08 · 18/04/2016 at 15:08

what is people thoughts Mitch Robinson. Would he be a good option for barlow.

    Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 15:15

    Scored 86 last round. Barlow scored 81.

    Sure Barlow had a couple of 60's, but robbo had a 67 too.

    Plus with Robbo you will no doubt get a reckless suspension here and there. Not worth the trade at all, pick up a ball magnet like Merret/Zorko or take a punt on a more risky tall forward like Buddy/waite etc.

EdCavey · 18/04/2016 at 15:08

Being in the top 2% is very satisfying, but scoring 2010 after a 2400+ isn't. I look to downgrade JJ to DBJ and upgrade Callum Sinclair to a Forward/Mid Premo. The rest of the team looks solid, but de goey needs some higher scores or he's going and some of those rookies are getting tempting to trade… Any ideas of premo's to swap in for Callum Sinclair? Mid/For

    derek · 18/04/2016 at 15:44

    Buddy is looking a nice upgrade. averaging 101 in the first 4 games. BE 81. hasn't had a big game yet, but not far away from a big game. Lions in two weeks followed by Essendon

      EdCavey · 21/04/2016 at 09:58

      Buddy is looking very nice. I was also thinking a downgrade to cockatoo this week and then upgrading 2 rookies (papely and Hartley most likely) to premo's.

Nick · 18/04/2016 at 15:09

Anyone on J Lyons as a cash cow?

    Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 15:18

    I took the risk and locked him in last week against any logic. He should hold his spot after reasonable performances in the last two weeks.

    Adam · 18/04/2016 at 17:16


    Mick · 19/04/2016 at 10:18

    Almost a straight swap for Papley or Milera very tempting for mine – will consider seriously as I had both on the ground this week for 50pts odd in total !!

Tttt · 18/04/2016 at 15:11

Martin passed his concussion test and is likely to line up against the dogs…yay haha

    Holty · 18/04/2016 at 15:36

    great to hear. It was a shame because he was going huge in that game and i would of been saying 'i knew it, i picked the best ruck after Goldy.' Thankfully the KO happened just b4 half time because I was about to get on this site and make a massive full of myself.

      The Weapon · 18/04/2016 at 21:11

      I think you were forgetting about a certain bearded wonder known as Max Gawn as the number 2 SC ruck, but martin is a close third

Mika · 18/04/2016 at 15:18

Who should I trade out Hartley for?

Ruggles or Byrne jones

    Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 15:28

    I'd wait till teams are named before doing that. If you have Papley or a non playing rookie you might wanna trade them out instead for BJ.

    I don't rate Ruggles JS, Hartley will play a lot more games than him this year.

    derek · 18/04/2016 at 15:38

    hold him

    breakevens · 18/04/2016 at 16:25

    Only trade Hartley out if he's not named on Thursday

    Harry · 18/04/2016 at 18:43

    FYI Mark Harvey singled out Hartley for praise after the game as the defensive coach. I highly doubt he'd be dropped a week after that

    Redgumwon · 18/04/2016 at 19:16

    What for team selection before making your mind up. Grimma isn't that far away and I'm not sure who will have less job security out of Hartley or Brown when Grimma is good to go.

    Mick · 19/04/2016 at 10:22

    Hartley named in AFL team of the week (suggest his js is very good )

Liam · 18/04/2016 at 15:20

Papley to byrne jones via brown dpp

JJ to shaw


    Grahame Lebroy · 18/04/2016 at 15:22

    Like it Liam

    Adam · 19/04/2016 at 08:25

    Maybe go Docherty instead of Shaw or wait one round to trade in Shaw …. i dont think hell score 124.

      simon · 19/04/2016 at 09:46

      Shut up adam, go back in your shell, your opinions don't matter to me or liam

    BKW · 19/04/2016 at 12:42

    Yep looks good

    Northerner · 20/04/2016 at 04:40

    Can't fault that. Just be aware Shaw's break even goes higher next week – 150odd based upon his projected score – so you could get him $30k to $50k cheaper if you wait 2 weeks.

Ethan017 · 18/04/2016 at 15:24

agreed but Ben Keays can't be far away last three games in the seconds have been 39, 32 and 31 touches in all heavy loses

Mikaa · 18/04/2016 at 15:25

Don't feel he's going to score that well, and job security with grima coming in.

    Mika · 18/04/2016 at 15:27

    Plus I can pocket a nice 80k

    Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 15:37

    He shut down Hawkins who got no goals, and he was a draft pick last year that they need to get games into. I think people are jumping the gun on his JS. In the end it's all speculation though of course.

      50_Shades · 18/04/2016 at 18:10

      Mika, personally I'dhold Hartley. BE of just 2 means still cash to be made, maybe $30k this week vs $50k for Ruggles and $70k for DBJ.

      I'd take DBJ over Ruggles, but maybe see if there is another way than via Hartley.

    Steve_Young · 19/04/2016 at 01:26

    I don't rate Grima at all

Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 15:33

Yep and he lost only 50k. People freaked out too much glad I kept him.

    Nicholas · 18/04/2016 at 17:24

    Who is this?

breakevens · 18/04/2016 at 16:11

Last chance to get Zach Merrett community set for another price rise with a breakeven of 90 this week

    Mac · 18/04/2016 at 16:17

    He will drop later on in the season.

      breakevens · 18/04/2016 at 17:43

      Risky not having him buddy

    Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 17:58

    His projected price change is 12k……………..

    wayno1313 · 18/04/2016 at 22:39

    Not really. He's projected to get 119. which will mean only a 12.8k price rise. He could easily go less than 120 even though it's against a poor playing Collingwood. Unless he goes huge you won't loose too much money by picking him up next week,

      Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 23:14

      Exactly. I don't think breakevens knows much about breakevens.

Alex · 18/04/2016 at 16:18

Papley to Byrne-Jones
Barlow to Fyfe. Leaves me with 100k


    Adam · 19/04/2016 at 08:25

    Hold on Barlow, just do Papley trade

    BKW · 19/04/2016 at 12:44

    I'd be inclined to be aggressive and do both trades.. as fellow Barlow owner he is on very thin ice!

    Only holding Barlow as I don't have enough cash to upgrade (without multiple trades)

Matt · 18/04/2016 at 16:20

Should I bring in Rance or Zach Merrit? Or someone similarly priced

    breakevens · 18/04/2016 at 17:45

    Zach Merrett Rance is a key defender who will get a lockdown role most weeks and was lucky to get the 140 on the weekend

      Noigerbour · 18/04/2016 at 21:10


      Jimi · 18/04/2016 at 21:57

      In 2105 out of 23 games Rance:

      – Cracked the tonne 11 times, scoring over 150 twice, and scoring between 110 – 150 5 other times.
      – Scored in the 90's 4 times.
      – Scored in the 80's 3 times
      – Scored less than 80 5 times, with a low of 44.

      He's a very solid defenive option with a high ceiling and much more often than not you'll be happy with his contribution. Even though he has fewer stinkers than most other KPPs he will still throw out the odd sub 60.

      For what it's worth he's one of my upgrade targets

james · 18/04/2016 at 16:21

150K left in the bank

Obviously JJ has to be traded. But also thinking of going Barlow to Zach Merrett. Thoughts ? Help much appreciated 🙂

    Adam · 18/04/2016 at 16:59

    isn't Martin (BRisbane lions) Injured?

    IF NOT
    JJ ——–> Merrett ( through tipungwuti)
    Papley ———> Byrne Jones (through Brown)

    Barlow could get his BE of 88 this round so i'd hold (I have him too so i know the urge to get rid of him ) Whereas Papley's BE of 63 is insane and ,after the previous two rounds difficult to get. Byrne Jones will skyrocket if he plays and Merrett is a gun. Enough said

    breakevens · 18/04/2016 at 17:48

    If your going to get Zach Merrett it needs to be this week
    Breakeven of 90 and already at 530k and you're probably too late to trade out Barlow with his breakeven at 88
    I would just hold on Barlow unless you really want Merrett

Andrew · 18/04/2016 at 16:42

What do we think about Ruggles job security people?

    Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 17:32

    Not trading him in due to the doubt.

      50_Shades · 18/04/2016 at 17:45

      I agree, go DBJ if you're looking for a cheap defender who is looking alright. A 97 and 79 from his two games.

        Westy · 18/04/2016 at 19:15

        Do people think Ruggles stRuggles?

Tulendeena · 18/04/2016 at 16:46

Does PapSmear have to go?

    Mac · 18/04/2016 at 16:50


    Adam · 18/04/2016 at 16:53

    Yes, BE of 63, don't think he'll make it

      50_Shades · 18/04/2016 at 17:59

      Unless you have bigger issues, he appears to have hit his mark, I've moved him on for DBJ.

        Cman · 18/04/2016 at 19:48

        how do you do this? One is a back and the other a forward??

          trev · 18/04/2016 at 19:50

          I just found this out myself, as long as you have a fwd eligible def you can swing them even in a trade, this blew my mind when I realised

    BKW · 19/04/2016 at 12:45

    Could hold one more week but he may loose a few $$ – either goes this week or next unfortunately

ThatDamnRascal · 18/04/2016 at 16:50

So much hinges on the selections on Thursday. I've reversed about 20 times already. Been thinking the double downgrade to DBJ and Ruggles from Hewitt/Gresham and The Smear (via DPP magic). It's simply a money making exercise but at having used 4 trades already I really want to sit and let these cows fatten up to the bye rounds but these two seem to be the logical step to cash generation.

Knocked out a 2096 down from my usual 2200+ this week with Houli stinking it up after trading him in and Gibbo being out + the Danger captain choice. Still in the top 1% but want to start making some ground.

James · 18/04/2016 at 16:52

Who is the top priority to get in out of:
S. Mitchell
Z. Merrett

Cheers community

    Mac · 18/04/2016 at 16:58

    Ablett IMO

      James · 18/04/2016 at 17:18

      Cheers, my concern is I have enough to do one this week and one next, and Ablett has North and will likely drop a bit, whereas the others will rise. Better to get Gary next week?

      Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 17:57

      His BE is only 127, Even if he drops a bit it would be bugger all I reckon.

    Steeeve · 18/04/2016 at 17:05

    In order, Ablett, Ablett, Ablett, Ablett

    Adam · 19/04/2016 at 08:29

    Merrett and Ablett are your Priorities , maybe Ward if you think hell score better than ablett

    JamiesNinjas13 · 19/04/2016 at 12:03

    Discussion on 'On the Counch' last night saying Ablett might be rested because of his shoulder. Maybe Jock was right lol

      Southern S · 19/04/2016 at 15:23

      Shit I better trade him out.

        JamiesNinjas13 · 19/04/2016 at 16:24

        Yeah im trading out ablett and Hall.

Adam · 18/04/2016 at 16:52


What do people think of these trades and the js of Lyons and Byrne Jones?

Loop · 18/04/2016 at 16:55

I think its a double downgrade for me. Papley to DBJ and Milera to Wagner.
Opinions on who is the better option – Wagner or Byrne.
I'm not really happy with the $$$s for Milera, is there potential for better scores or is he done?

    harmas · 18/04/2016 at 17:55

    Re: Milera… now he has a confirmed injury he will pushing the proverbial uphill (when fit again) to dislodge Charlie Cameron who played nearly every game last year in a similar role. Only hold if you have another bench playing fwd rookie. Crows play bugger all sunday games so can't even use Milera as a captains loophole. Gone.

    smote · 18/04/2016 at 18:22

    Re: Milera has a breakeven of 61… enough said. trade him!

Fevolution · 18/04/2016 at 17:01

George Hewett – Darcy Bryce jones
Jordan de Goey – … Anyone under 535k thinking Merrett or Docherty??? Thoughts

    Fevolution · 18/04/2016 at 17:16


      50_Shades · 18/04/2016 at 17:52


      Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 18:23

      So he got a 146.

      Last week everyone was telling people to trade in Houli after his 144. Now nobody mentions him………why not?

      Anyway I like the Merret and Docherty options I see both being very consistent.

        50_Shades · 18/04/2016 at 18:32

        I'm not talking about Houli. i like docherty too, but I'd prefer Rance and don't see the price difference as a deciding factor. I think he'll better do cherry over the course of the year with avg score and games played.

        Marco_Polo94 · 18/04/2016 at 18:39

        It's not because he got 146. It's because he is a proven gun SC premium in defence. I'd have him over Docherty in a heartbeat

        Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 19:33

        They possibly already have Rance anyway I just thought I'd answer their particular question of Merrett or Docherty, in which they both seem good options.

Big G · 18/04/2016 at 17:11

How can any AFL footballer play a full game and get only 24?

    Mac · 18/04/2016 at 17:24

    Because his name is Tom Papley

    Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 17:48

    He's a 19 year old who has been thrown in the deep end. All in all I'd say he's done very well.

    Jared Polec scored 8 supercoach points with 83% time on ground against the crows in round 2, so there's worse performances out there.

    Or maybe you just don't know football as well as you think and shouldn't have had him on the ground that game.

    Derek · 18/04/2016 at 18:02

    I thought you were talking about mr Dawson.

    What is his excuse?

      hedski · 18/04/2016 at 19:01

      He's a pleb

TeenWolfFyfe · 18/04/2016 at 17:17

Who's the best option to get JJ out for thinking Biggs or is it too risky?

    Mac · 18/04/2016 at 17:24

    Biggs not proven in my opinion.

      TeenWolfFyfe · 18/04/2016 at 18:01

      what about suckling or docherty

      BKW · 19/04/2016 at 12:47

      True, but with JJ and Murph out he has to step up… I think he's a very solid pick, ball magnet and good user… should average around 90 on the season.

    tuxCS · 18/04/2016 at 19:27

    I like Docherty.

Mark · 18/04/2016 at 17:21

Should i trade JJ for Rance or Docherty?

Also is it time to trade out Papley?

    Steeeve · 18/04/2016 at 17:26

    Yes and yes. If you care for my opinion between the two defenders you've named, Rance. Pretty sure the bloke works at Champion Data part time.

      50_Shades · 18/04/2016 at 17:47

      I'd also go rance, he's $40k more but I think he's worth the extra coin.

    Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 18:11


      Leeds17 · 18/04/2016 at 21:57

      just a little worried as Doc started last year well then evened out to 85ish a game

        Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 23:10

        He's increased his average scoring each year though, and he missed rounds 11, 14 and 15 last year so injury may impacted his scoring a little.

          Leeds17 · 19/04/2016 at 05:53

          yep having a closer look he top 100pts 3 times last season has done that already in 4 rounds this season and looks to be playing a slightly more attacking role under Bolton, I'm tempted tbh

Michael · 18/04/2016 at 17:24

What do i do with S.Jacobs, i got 70k in the bank.

    Steeeve · 18/04/2016 at 17:26

    Hold, he's proven. Will come good.

    Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 17:54

    Doesn't do enough around the ground anymore, game moves too fast for him.

    Not as many out of bounds and stoppages this year so he will struggle to be a premo.

    Wouldn't like to have him personally, but I think you'll have to hold for at least a while to see if he improves.

Brendan · 18/04/2016 at 17:30

What is the communities thoughts on Sam Jacobs? He still hasnt cracked the ton averaging only 80 and his ruck work looks to be lacking and ground work after mediocre performances against lobbe(74) hampson(95) and tippett(88).
Im trading Trent Mackenzie to Darcy Byrne Jones so i have the option of going Jacobs to Goldstein with my other ruckman being Naitanui.
Should i trade to goldy or hold and hope he can turn his scoring around?.

    SCaddict · 18/04/2016 at 17:48

    Gotta say it's looking a little bleak for Sauce owners. It's much like the Jacobs of 2013 where coaches held the faith all season hoping he would turn it around but he only averaged 85 that year to effectively achieve burnman status.

    He just hasn't had that behemoth score that NicNat, Goldy and Gawn have all had to get their average back in order. Sometimes you just have to cut your losses and move on although that burnt trade may come back to haunt you at some point.

    The Crows killer early draw probably hasn't helped either. He also looked a little banged up on the weekend so it may be a blessing in disguise if he misses this week and then you'd have a good excuse to 'upgrade' him as silly as that may sound.

      Brendan · 18/04/2016 at 19:53

      Yeah exactly my thoughts.
      After watching him the last few weeks, he doesnt take those important contested marks that Naitanui Goldy and Gawn do which is hurting his score as well as not getting as much possessions around the ground.
      Im losing 50points every round currently from having jacobs instead of goldstein.

wayno1313 · 18/04/2016 at 17:38

I'm not sure if it's me but I still don't see Merrett as a Top 6 Forward. Maybe I'm just being stubborn.

    breakevens · 18/04/2016 at 17:50

    Can see where your coming from but I feel he is necessary at the moment as he has already gained 60k and has a breakeven of 90
    Later in the season when his scores start to drop you can sub him into the midfield and trade in an ultra premo

    Derek · 18/04/2016 at 17:54


    SCaddict · 18/04/2016 at 18:05

    I've actually watched him carefully over the past few weeks and he's definitely feeling the real deal to me and not some flash in the pan. He's quite a workhorse out there and knows how to rack em up. He's even better in the DT scoring comps.

    I may even get him in this week for either Barlow or De Goey (depending on the Stef Martin situation). Could really go to town on the Pies next weekend. The 3 Zs, Zorko, Zerrett and Zaka are all performing awesome early in the season. Can they keep it up is the only question now.

    Phil · 18/04/2016 at 19:39

    Im the other way, I can't see him or Zaka slowing down too much… They have lost 2 games by 60 points already and these guys are averaging ~115. Maybe one will start getting tagged, but there's Goddard there too. Unlike Zorko, absolutely nobody out of the team will be in soon to take their points/role.

      wayno1313 · 18/04/2016 at 21:33

      I think the teams that they have played haven't really performed very well against the Bombers. As the season goes on you will see this won't happen. It might just be the current mindset against the Bombers.

        Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 22:03

        Yet last year Merrett got 26 and 31 touches in his two games against the Hawks. Didn't drop below 73 SC all year and got a 130 and a 140 due to getting 11 and 12 tackles in those matches.

        Same time last year he was only 19. Another preseason under his belt now, and full time midfield role and he's now taking it to the next level.

        Gold Coast and Geelong are both in form, maybe it's not the fact they haven't performed well against the bombers, but it's the fact that they are good players and are highly under rated.

          Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 22:05

          * the hawks games were not the 130 and 140 scores, these games were against against Port Adelaide and West Coast.

          He still got an 82 and a 90 in the games I mentioned against the hawks.

Hayley · 18/04/2016 at 17:45

I can trade out Papley and Menadue for Byrne-Jones and Zorko OR I can trade out Papley and Hewett for Byrne-Jones and Hanley. Hanley is a bigger POD but Zorko has the DPP flexibility. Team would be:

Def: Heater, Laird, Adams, Weitering, Dea, Byrne-Jones (JJ, Hartley)
Mid: Danger, Ablett, Parker, Zaharakis, Hanley/Zorko, Shiel, Libba, Cripps (Mills, Menadue/Hewett, Davis)
Ruck: Goldstein, Nic Nat
For: Hall, Wells, Buddy, Kerridge, Kennedy, AMT (McGovern, Milera)

Defense looks weak, but there's money on the bench in JJ, so it'd be easy to fix quickly, but the midfield is ready to go for the rest of the year.

Geez there is pressure on when you're in the top 100 haha

    Fevolution · 18/04/2016 at 18:52

    don't think Hanley will be a top 10 mid and if your bringing a premo in your wanting them to be a top 10 of their respective line. Zorko will be a top 10 FWD, He has averaged 99+ 3/4 years where as Hanley has only averaged over 100 once in 5 seasons and is unlikely to be a top 10 mid meaning you would probably have to trade him out later in the year.

Phil · 18/04/2016 at 17:52

I wouldn't trade out Menadue for BJ he still has money to make. I'd trade out JJ now

    Fevolution · 18/04/2016 at 18:53

    BJ will make more money is his first change than Menadue will till the byes

lolattack · 18/04/2016 at 17:57

Papley for Zorko or Merrett?

    Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 18:17

    Both looking great.

    Steeeve · 18/04/2016 at 21:55

    Yes. Haha

Derek · 18/04/2016 at 18:17

There are plenty of discussion already about trading rookies. Paps and Brown seem to be most common.

The answer to all these questions should be, wait until teams are announced, if not named think about trading then.

Don't be too quick to trade them out. Sqeeze every dollar out of them is better than waste a trade for $60k. Remember Oxley last year, had a few poor scores and a lot traded him. He went above $450k.

    50_Shades · 18/04/2016 at 18:25

    derek, I agree and I was one that held Oxley very late (probably too late) into last season.

    I think the issue now is the rookies are like iPhone models, always something new and more flashy.

    I'm probably going paps to DBJ pending team announcements but don't think I can justify 2 of the same moves this week.

    SCaddict · 18/04/2016 at 18:39

    It only takes one decent score of 80 plus for the many of the rookies to start significantly appreciating again just like we got with Mills and AMT on the weekend.

    But I agree with 50_Shades that Paps is looking a little cooked. Hard to see him scoring much against the Eagles this weekend assuming he holds his spot, although of course stranger things have happened. Both Reid and Rowan are not far away from being available for selection as well so he could go the way of the dodo soon like his pal Hewett.

    Harry · 18/04/2016 at 18:48

    Wise words. I was one of the fools who traded Oxley out and he scored about 1000 points against Melbourne the next week.

    However I think Papley is a valid trade candidate. Being a small fwd hardly equates to big scores, unless you're elite like Eddie. He's made 120k and they say a trade is worth around 150k so it's not far off the mark

      Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 19:12

      Spot on, first year player playing small forward is a lot different to someone like Adam oxley who had been in the system for some years and was being used in an important back line role.

      That saying people trading out Mitch brown with a low BE are more than likely doing the wrong thing.

      If Papley is dumped this week by sydney then it's completely different than trading out oxley last season as he was still playing.

      For the record I kept Oxley 🙂

        Derek · 18/04/2016 at 21:16

        there was the people who got rid of Crippps early

          hedski · 18/04/2016 at 21:19


          Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 21:29

          He got a 172 in his third game in 2015 and is a big midfielder………..was an easy choice not to trade.

greg · 18/04/2016 at 18:21

anyone know how long till Brad CROUCH is back?

    SCaddict · 18/04/2016 at 18:24

    There's some talk he could even play as early as this week according to a tweet by the Phantom this arvo. Will just have to wait for selection Thursday I suppose.

      Fevolution · 18/04/2016 at 18:55

      hopefully, would much rather him than De Goey…. gotta get rid of one

Hayley · 18/04/2016 at 18:32

I like Hanley. He's building week on week, and he doesn't burn the ball. Has good SC form and i reckon Beams and Rockliff back in the team will send him to the outside where he can get loads of it and kick goals.

But the option of having Zorko there and shifting him forward for Kennedy or AMT or similar and bringing in another mid premo is a hard thing to go past.

Don't Blush Babbie · 18/04/2016 at 18:34

Petracca 35 touches on the weekend ,must be close to being picked

    Mick · 19/04/2016 at 10:38

    Two weeks – St Kilda game first chance

Jess_coach · 18/04/2016 at 18:44

Keeping things simple

JJ to Laird
JJ to Rance


    Mac · 18/04/2016 at 18:50

    Laird. Has been scoring well and the Crows have a favourable draw coming up

    SC16 · 18/04/2016 at 19:13

    im thinking maybe rance, and especially because every team has laird so bit of a pod option, tonned up 3/4 games and with richmond loosing he should be getting more of the ball. hope that helps 🙂

      Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 19:18

      Rance and Laird are in around 15% of teams (1% difference roughly)

      He's no POD and everyone will be jumping on him because he got a large score, just like everyone jumped on Houli last week.

      Not saying he's a bad pick though.

    SCaddict · 18/04/2016 at 19:13

    Both awesome selections Jess so just pick who you like best.

    You are probably paying close to absolute top dollar for Rance but frankly the Champion Data boys have a serious man-crush on the guy so who can argue really.

    I have Lairdy in my own team and he hasn't let me down yet.

      Jess_coach · 18/04/2016 at 20:08

      Laird it is! Thanks for the thoughts community ☺

        Jess_coach · 18/04/2016 at 20:11

        Other trade is paps -> DBJ via DPP, so that AMT can fill M6 (as opposed to playing menadue, mcarthy, brown, etc) ☺

trev · 18/04/2016 at 18:52

jj to byrne-jones
papley to zorko or montagna

leaves my defence a little flimsy but plenty of cover and rookies making money,
only used one trade so far this year that being to bring in papley on the bubble so can afford two trades this week sitting 196 overall
?? so many options but this one is jumping out at me

sc king · 18/04/2016 at 18:54

fellas rate my trade, sheridan to a rookie soon to play and cheap) petracca (using tipawugni swing in)
and then with that cash upgrade barlow to fyfe using wells swing in iption

    Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 18:58

    No point trading in Petracca.

      Kev · 18/04/2016 at 19:08

      I agree. Melbourne are obviously managing him and he's coming back from a knee. Would hate to see him break down again but it has been known to happen (Morabito)

    Phil · 18/04/2016 at 19:30

    Agree with the other 2 guys. If you're downgrading a defender (Sheridan) then it makes sense to downgrade to a defender as there is loads of them on 2 games. Byrne, Byrne-Jones, Wagner & Ruggles all on 2, Lee on 1…After this next fortnight Broad is the only rookie back I can think of that hasn't played, so there aren't gonna be many more options after this in that position.

      stavros · 18/04/2016 at 19:48

      tucker cole

        sc king · 18/04/2016 at 19:53

        but boys petracca isnt going to be starting on, tipawugin is and its just a way to make some cash for the fyfe upgrade

          Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 20:09

          So why not just trade in a defender on the bubble like BJ or Ruggle?

Jonathan Camac · 18/04/2016 at 18:54

Hey all – anyone willing to test themselves should add me as a rival. Go to leagues, click on rivalries and set-up 'Camac Attack' as new rival. Get on it! Looking forward to the competition and banter, have had some good games this year. Even Patch has signed up…nuff said.

Stevo · 18/04/2016 at 19:14

Papley to DBJ & maybe Gresham or Hewett to another Rookie – but who?

    Andy · 18/04/2016 at 19:23

    I like Sumner from Carlton also forward status

Andy · 18/04/2016 at 19:16

Forgive my ignorance but how do you trade papley foy Byrne jones via Adams ?

    Punter · 18/04/2016 at 19:20

    I was trying to work that out myself as i have no idea

      Harry · 18/04/2016 at 19:32

      Hit trade on Papley then hit the 'S' next to Adams on the trade screen which moves him to your fwd line. Then select Byrne Jones

        Harry · 18/04/2016 at 19:33

        Sorry that's obviously implied he's in your backline. I'm lucky I have tipa, Adams and Brown all in defence so have 3 guys to choose from

          trev · 18/04/2016 at 19:39

          ok I think I understand,, I never knew this was an option!!! ive consistently finished in the top1% for years and if I had of known this was possible WOW genuinely amazed

        trev · 18/04/2016 at 19:35

        byrne jones is NOT fwd/def elibable… only def????????????????

          Harry · 18/04/2016 at 19:42

          Yep but Adams is. So Papley as a fwd goes, you swing Adams as a def/fwd into the forward line, leaving a defensive space to bring Byrne Jones in

            trev · 18/04/2016 at 19:46

            this is blowing my mind!!!! top 1 percent overall last year currently 196 overall thought I knew supercoach cant believe this is a thing!!!!

              Harry · 18/04/2016 at 19:47

              Ha ha ok if you win the 50k this year I want 10% lol

                Derek · 18/04/2016 at 20:39

                pssssssssstttt………. Ready to really get amazed.

                Say you had Gresham in the mids and you wanted to trade him out for Ruggles.

                You trade out Gresham, click on the big S next to kennedy/Kerridge in forward line, and then click again on the big S next to ADAMS/Brown in defence and the trade in Ruggles.

                The result is Kennedy moves to mids (creating a swing set) ADAMS moves to forward (creating a swing set).

                Play around with it and see how many other combinations you can do. Even a simple Mid to Mid trade can offer other opportunities to move players around on other lines.

          Northerner · 20/04/2016 at 04:59

          Last year was the first year you could do multiple DPP movements in the one trade. The year before you were restricted to one swing per trade.

        Andy · 18/04/2016 at 19:44

        Thanks mate that's pretty cool wish I knew that years ago!

        Nick · 19/04/2016 at 01:40

        i can do this when using the browser but can't figure out how it works when using the SC app. Can it still be done

          Northerner · 20/04/2016 at 05:00

          Yes. Tab at the bottom shifts to your team rather than the playing list and you can swipe and hit the S sub button.

    trev · 18/04/2016 at 19:23

    not the first time ive heard this, people seem convinced papley can be traded to byrne jones but I have no clue how.
    am I that out of touch, no, its the others who are wrong

      trev · 18/04/2016 at 19:52

      no no I was that out of touch apparently haha :/

Dasha · 18/04/2016 at 19:17

So community, So I've got to get rid of JJ so only 1 trade left for the round, should I prioritise getting rid of Sam gray or Tommy sheridan? Or hold both? (My defence is pretty weak if I downgrade JJ)

    Phil · 18/04/2016 at 23:24

    Sheridans playing Carlton, I'd give him 1 more week if u can. so I'd probably go Gray & JJ

      50_Shades · 19/04/2016 at 00:02

      I agree. I didn't take s gray this year but I was so close to picking him as a bit of a POD.

      Time to move on I think. He's bleeding cash and he does much to suggest that's going to change.

Westy · 18/04/2016 at 19:19

Given the injuries at Doggieland, is Dunkley potentially going to return to the team?

    BKW · 19/04/2016 at 12:49

    Maybe… but personally (as a Doggies man) I think Redpath comes in for Boyd and Lukas Webb for JJ.

    And possibly Campbell for Roughead if he doesn't get up.

brettijewellerycomau · 18/04/2016 at 19:27

Anyone know any new forward rookies? I have already got Petracca.

Chi Chi · 18/04/2016 at 19:28

DEF JJ for Rance or Houli??

    Cam · 18/04/2016 at 20:16

    Rance will have a consistent score of around 90-110 and Houli can be inconsistent as he 140,73,144 and 56 he has the strength to go big so I reckon houli

    CoachDamo · 18/04/2016 at 20:20

    I'd go with Rance over Houli. There are games when Houli goes missing – he'll score 50-60 a few times throughout the year which can hurt in league matches.

    Fevolution25 · 18/04/2016 at 20:30

    Either are good options take your pick

    Davonaise · 18/04/2016 at 21:03

    I reckon both mate but get Rance first Houli will drop in price

    Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 21:05

    Why not Docherty? approx 490k, has a higher total for the season than Houli.

    Hasn't had a 140 though so isn't so 'hollywood'

Nick · 18/04/2016 at 19:28

What I-Pad app do you guys use for live SC scores,during the game. There seems to be heaps for other fantasy football games but very few for SC. I used to use Footyinfo but since updating i-pad to IOS 9 it's no longer available. Appreciate suggestions.


    Hoot · 18/04/2016 at 20:12

    Fanfooty. Straight from the web browser.

    Kev · 18/04/2016 at 20:30

    Fanfooty mate. Great research tool as well as those lovely live sc scores

tuxCS · 18/04/2016 at 19:30

Better options out there though, i personally cant see him coming good, with mundy and bennell to come back and sandilands out for a while i'm personally glad i traded him, went down to Papley, made about 100K and upgraded the rest of my team with it.

    Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 20:13

    Except if he comes good and stays in the forward line all year it's 2 trades saved.

Cam · 18/04/2016 at 19:33

Should I trade Zac Smith if so I have 120k

    SCaddict · 18/04/2016 at 20:36

    A resounding yes imo. We've seen him for a month now and it's difficult to see how he could become even a reasonable premo ruck scorer let alone a good one.

    Unfortunately he's one of those players who can have his impressive moments on the field but it just doesn't translate to any semblance of decent fantasy scoring.

    Just make sure you go straight up to a proper premo like a NicNat, Gawn or Goldy and don't mess around with another midpricer like a Leuey or Hickey. So that means you need to find $160K to at least get to NicNat. If you can't do that this week with your other trade then I'd hold Smith until you can go straight up to one of those top 3 rucks.

Westy · 18/04/2016 at 19:34

One trade – JJ out for DBJ. Adams to the back line. AMT to the forward line and onto the field.
Give Papley one more chance, and if not performing, then off to the Petraccary (rhymes with something else) for him.

    Chi Chi · 18/04/2016 at 19:37

    I'm giving Pap another week too BE is possible, unless he is dropped for Brandon Jack!

      Westy · 18/04/2016 at 19:43

      Don't want to roar through too many trades. Got him on the pine. Just have to beware of those weeks where 5 or 6 of the main 22 go kaput or missing (in non bye rounds) – that was the story last year. Struggled to sometimes have 22 playing.

        BlakeyP · 19/04/2016 at 10:13

        Sydney have west coast this week if Papley doesnt get dropped he will score below his BE and loose money. The good scores he got where from Sydney games with heavy win and different team stuctures. Now sydney got some guns back he will be lucky to play never lone score well

Jimmy · 18/04/2016 at 19:37

JJ for K.kolodjashnij. Thoughts??? I really like him, but i'm thinking do I wait to get him in later. What other premium defenders can I get?

    Chi Chi · 18/04/2016 at 19:54

    I went JJ for Yeo with no confidence. KK could be a better move ay

    Westy · 18/04/2016 at 20:06

    JJ to KK. OK. Heath Shaw? – he's an AA and an MVP, but might go MIA.

      Jimmy · 18/04/2016 at 20:42

      Already have Heater

    Fevolution25 · 18/04/2016 at 20:18

    Docherty($491,400) averaging 103.5 just quietly, plenty of ball for him down in the Carlton defence

      Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 20:37

      Has a higher total for the season than Houli who is priced at 540k. As you say should have a lot of action in the Carlton defense.

      Seems a really good choice for premium defender at the moment in only 3% of teams.

      Jimmy · 18/04/2016 at 20:46

      I'm tossing up between kk, Rance or Docherty.

@RoyWetard · 18/04/2016 at 19:48

Current trades
JJ > Ruggles
Papley to either Ablett (21k left) or Merrett (122k left) ???
If I want Ablett then I have to I have to get Ruggles over Byrne-Jones

    Andy · 18/04/2016 at 19:57


Don't Blush Babbie · 18/04/2016 at 19:57

Yeo looks tempting this week,BE 31 ,thoughts ?

    Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 20:30

    Might've got some mid time with Rocky and Beams out? Not sure as I haven't watched any of the Brisbane games.

    Unproven and looking at history incredibly inconsistent scoring.

    The score of 40 against Hawthorn is worrying and he got eleven scores of 70 or less last year (full season and finals included)

      Don't Blush Babbie · 18/04/2016 at 20:59

      You know he plays for West Coast n not Brisbane ?

        Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 21:08

        Ha ha major brainfade!

        Ignore top line on my previous comment, rest still applies.

    Davonaise · 18/04/2016 at 21:02

    Why do people talk about BE's ???
    If you think he will score like a top 6 defender from now on then grab him
    Don't mention BE because it sounds like you want cash generation from him.

      hedski · 18/04/2016 at 21:11

      Or you might want to grab them before they rise in price too much? (Or wait til they drop)

      Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 21:12

      Well if you have your eye on a player you buy them when they have a low BE right?

      I doubt anyone thinks he will be a top six defender, some people buy players according to budget though, but that's a sure way of having mediocre players in your team.

      Don't Blush Babbie · 18/04/2016 at 22:01

      Do you think he will be a top 6 defender ? personally a D6 for me, also BE's I believe is about value for either upgrade or downgrade of rookies & fallen premium players to achieve the best team post the byes.

    wayno1313 · 18/04/2016 at 21:37

    He had more mid time because Priddis was out. I'd pass

    SCaddict · 18/04/2016 at 22:22

    He's known as the YoYo for a reason as he can be very up and down. He's fired 3 out of the 4 weeks which is a good strike rate so far but will it last? Also his role seems to change week to week.

    If he pops out another 40 odd against the Swans at the SCG like he did against the Hawks at the G three weeks ago you might have some buyer's remorse.

    Bit of a high risk selection if you are hoping for him to be a top 10 defender but it could work out well enough. I won't be touching him myself.

      Northerner · 20/04/2016 at 06:02

      They definitely want him to learn his midfield trade now that they have some talls in their backline and there is still Wellingham to come back – maybe even this week – who Simmo would prefer to use in the defensive lockdown role Yeo played last year. He will be up and down but can go large as we know and will definitely score more than last year so I do see as value, inconsistent with upside.

Sam · 18/04/2016 at 20:02

help me out here guys, i may have the kiss of death.
Got Johanissen in the week he got 79 now he's out, so trading him to Waite(McDonald-Tipungwuti to Def)
Just worried that he'll spud it up

    Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 20:23

    Waite 560k with an 80 BE, that's a risky buy.

    If you think he's a lock all year then go for it, personally I wouldn't go near a trade like that.

Cam · 18/04/2016 at 20:09

24 trades left do I trade Zac smith. 120k in bank

Def: Houli, rance, yeo, dea, weitering, Adams (AMT, broad)
Mid: Gazza, j selwood, Parker, r gray, Shiel, libba, parish, kerridge (mills, macaffer, schoenfeld)
Ruc: Martin, z smith (cox)
Fwd: Montagna, d Martin, hall, wells, Kennedy, papley (L McCarthy, pertracca)

    Rocksta · 18/04/2016 at 20:16

    Shit mate, you've used a lot of trades given you've only got 13 keepers ( not counting Adams or Wells at this stage).
    I'd use 1 trade on Z Smith if it gives you another keeper ruckman.
    I suggest you slow down on the trade button though after than except for cashing in fully fattened/maxed out cash cows.

      Rocksta · 18/04/2016 at 20:20

      Sorry, just saw Papley. He needs to also go this week.
      Trade Papley out, move AMT into the forward line, and trade in Byrne-Jones or Wagner.
      This will then give you an additional $100K to upgrade Z Smith.

        Cam · 18/04/2016 at 20:45

        How do I sub amt into fwd??

          Cam · 18/04/2016 at 20:46

          Gawn , Mumford or Nic Nat for smith

          Rocksta · 18/04/2016 at 20:56

          It doesnt work on the SC app ( or at least I don't know how to do it on the app).
          Log into SC on the internet. Press Trade on Papley, press the 'S' on AMT which will sub him into the forward line. Press trade in Def, and bring in Bryne-Jones. I did the exact same thing earlier.

            hedski · 18/04/2016 at 21:16

            Dont bother with the app it was made by the scgods in one of their sh!ttier moments. Terrible. Cant log in or trade/switch players when games on.
            As you said go thru website

              BlakeyP · 19/04/2016 at 09:59

              A lot of people are having dramas with the App. I was having problems to begin with them i updated the App has been good ever since. You may need ro update the App

CoachDamo · 18/04/2016 at 20:17

Toby Greene and Patrick Dangerfield have provided a consistent output for my team, but only if I combine them! (You have to find a positive somewhere)

Round 1: 213 points
Round 2: 197 points
Round 3: 218 points
Round 4: 211 points

Perhaps Toby is the Yin to Danger's Yang…

    Dean · 18/04/2016 at 22:07

    lmfao I loved that…

Alex · 18/04/2016 at 20:51

Benken to Callen Ward?

    Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 21:15

    Has a 56 BE, and has scored double that of his BE twice out of 4 games. Hold.

Ethan · 18/04/2016 at 20:59

to bring in Byrne/Byrne-Jones/Wagner or Cockatoo

    Southern S · 19/04/2016 at 01:45

    Byrne should have good JS at carlton. 15 and 20 touches.

    B-Jones should also have good JS. 14 and 21 touches.

    Wagner I'm not sure about his JS. They had Oscar Mcdonald play in round one before a small ankle injury, can't see him on the injury list any more so he might be good to play. They have so many other ins and outs at the moment I can't really keep up. He had a poor first game with only 8 touches. But 24 last week vs the struggling pies.

    Cockatoo's 29 SC (8 touches) against brisbane and 92 SC (13 touches) vs the bombers is not very convincing for me, even with 7 tackles in the second game.

battlewolf87 · 18/04/2016 at 21:04

got destroyed by gibbo and priddis out and have crouchy on the bench too…dropped from 900 to 7k in one week…getting rid of pap and the chad but not sure who to pick;

– pap OUT Byrne-Jones/ciaran byrne IN
– wingard OUT ward/parker/hanley/zorko/ziebell(anyone else im missing got ablet/danger/fyfe/priddis/r gray/zaha and zmerett already)IN

cheers boys

    Hawks · 18/04/2016 at 22:01

    Papley to Byrne-Jones

    Keep Wingard, Port have to be better than last week.

      Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 22:58

      I'm not so sure about Wingard. A 125, a 54 and now a 61.

      And not just because of him as an individual, but port are just struggling in general, and I don't see it changing very quickly.

        Steeeve · 19/04/2016 at 09:16

        The 54 was when he went off with a hammy. 61 came during an absolute shellacking. Port should win three of their next four. Hold.

          Southern S · 19/04/2016 at 15:54

          Three of their next four? That's pretty optimistic considering they lost to all four of those teams last year.

fatboyfat7 · 18/04/2016 at 21:11

First of all, cheers Carl for re-posting that picture above, earned me an ALMIGHTY clatter across head. On the receiving end of two different kinds of beating from the same girl within in 24 hours… Pride and head hurt…
But that aside… Managed a 2100 which doesn't appear to be a disaster this round. I think the worst thing for me is Ward scoring so well because now he seems to have attracted attention from everyone when he was flying nicely under the radar with Parker, Gray etc killing it. Looks like he may not be a POD any longer.

fatboyfat7 · 18/04/2016 at 21:26

Gresham/Dunkley/Papley for the second trade, Menadue and Brown still have achievable BE.

    fatboyfat7 · 18/04/2016 at 21:47

    I wouldn't be surprised if Papley gets the axe this week either…

JAYZ · 18/04/2016 at 21:29

Ciarnn Bryne a better option than ruggles or Wagner?? Scored 67 with 7 clangers…

    Big G · 19/04/2016 at 09:30

    Thanks for putting out there another genuine option. I think as long as they all consistently score 60-80, they are all good bench options.

james · 18/04/2016 at 21:41

would like to get some people's opinion on my team

Houli, Laird, Adams, Weitering, Dea, Sheridan (Cutler, Ruggles)
Dangerfield, Ablett, Hannebery, Priddis, Gray, Shiel, Taylor Adams, Parish (Davis, Hewett, Gresham)
Gawn, Nic Nat (Lorench)
Hall, Wells, Kerridge, BenKen, AMT, De Goey (Menadue, J.Smith)

Have 96k in the bank

what potential trades could i make this week

    Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 23:05

    Cutler on the bench? Trade

    Who's this J Smith? He going to play?

Leeds17 · 18/04/2016 at 21:42

Biggs already scoring pretty well before Murphy and JJ went down potential to be a top10 def now?
Hunter will play a bit deeper i think so he'll steal a bit of ball as will Boyd and Suckling, but Biggs looks pretty handy…

    Southern S · 19/04/2016 at 01:14

    He's an interesting prospect for sure, 35 touches against Freo in round one for 118 SC and now 32 touches last week against carlton for 120 SC.

    Only thing I don't like is it seems he doesn't do much contested work.

    Northernsoul74 · 19/04/2016 at 07:45

    I'm big on Biggs, but partly due to my doggies tinted glasses. Risky, safest bet is to go to a Rance or Gibson. Sometimes to need to do something different though and I'm not s fan of paying big for defenders.

Michael · 18/04/2016 at 22:02

community, ive got 26 trades left, is it worth downgrading papley to b. jones or should i hold papley to wait to see if he generates any more cash and also to save a trade. i currently have 66k in the bank. thoughts?

    Southern S · 19/04/2016 at 01:24

    If Papley isn't named I'd probably trade.

      Derek · 19/04/2016 at 09:42

      agree. If not named I will trade

dwhits · 18/04/2016 at 22:05

Need help dumping Barlow outta my life!

Team currently:

laird, adams, simpson, weitering, dea, KK (brown, hartley)
danger, ablett, parker, fyfe, libra, kennedy, viney, mills (davis, dunkley, keays)
montagna, BARLOW, martin, kerridge, wells, tipiwooti (menadue, trecca)

Struggling to find the best way to offload barlow the useless prick….. Only have 13k though….

Suggestions community? Thanks in advance 🙂

    Hawks · 18/04/2016 at 22:13

    Keep hm, he will come good. Freo are not that bad.

    Dean · 18/04/2016 at 22:35

    Keep barlow and trade out Kennedy and bring in Byrne-Jones

    Tophawk · 18/04/2016 at 22:39

    Keep Barlow. He is the least of your worries right now. Has a lowish BE and will not fall much further in price. I think you need to have a close hard look at your rookies. A few you own haven't hit the park yet, and some which you currently have are generating you mediocre cash.

    Jack Viney is another one which has a big red flag hovering over him.


      dwhits · 19/04/2016 at 03:03

      Yeah Barlow can stay but the rookies k have still have a lowish BE so I'll wait until they've maxed out. Everyone is talking of trading benken, is he spent?

    Southern S · 18/04/2016 at 23:03

    He scored a 99 and now an 81 it's not the end of the world.

    Surely with your attitude you would've dropped him straight after the two 60's?

Dean · 18/04/2016 at 22:06

This week I will be making One or Two trades.
OUT Papley 100% & maybe Kennedy
IN Byrne-Jones & Wagner in defence.

This will top up my Cash to $445,000 I will then look to bring in TWO fallen ultra premo’s such as maybe R Gray and H Shaw at this stage.

This will be my side after trading OUT Papley & Kennedy and give me $445,000 in the kitty.

DEF: Rance, Laird, Adams, Weitering, Dea, Byrne-Jones (Hartley, Wagner)
MID: Danger, GAJ, Fyfe, Libba, Wines, Kerridge, Mills, Rich (Menadue, Davis, Dunkley)
RUCK: Goldy, NicNat (Wyatt)
FWD: Hall, Wells, Motlop, Rioli, AMT, Barlow (Brown, McCarthy)

Thoughts community?

    Southern S · 19/04/2016 at 00:59

    Not a big fan of trading kennedy out yet.

    How's Wagner's job security? He got 24 touches and ended up with a decent score of 76 in his game against a poor collingwood but his previous outing with 8 touches against North wasn't the greatest. Don't want a fair weather sailor. Could've been first game jitters I guess.

      stavros · 19/04/2016 at 08:57

      as a demons fan youre correct A lot of better players coming back but in fairness he did look very good tough one

    Northernsoul74 · 19/04/2016 at 07:40

    I'd just do the 1 trade.

Ben · 18/04/2016 at 22:18

Should i trade in Sam Mitchell or Dan Hannebery?

    SCaddict · 18/04/2016 at 22:36

    Yes but I'm not sure they are urgent priorities so wouldn't go out of your way to chase them.

    But if you are looking for a midfield premo to bring in this week you couldn't be faulted for going with either one of those two lads. Ward and Gray are two others to consider along with the usual suspects like Danger, Gaz and Fyfe if you are missing one of those.

    Southern S · 19/04/2016 at 00:45


Wighty36 · 18/04/2016 at 23:17

168th overall this weeks trades papley/brand to ruggles/byrne jones this leaves me with

DEF- gibson,smith,weitering,dea,adams,byrnejones (brown,ruggles)

MID- ablett,fyfe,danger,hanners,selwood,libba,wines,hunter (hewett,davis,mills)

RUCKS – goldy,gawn (chol)

FWDS – hall,dalhaus,kerridge,wells,kennedy,tippa (petracca,menadue)

125k in bank next order of business will the ? On wines give him this week or gone

    Southern S · 19/04/2016 at 01:25

    Team seems good. Yep wines will have to go I suppose if he doesn't start performing. Doom and gloom down at port is going to rub off on everybody.

    Northernsoul74 · 19/04/2016 at 07:39

    How many trades does that leave you with?

      Wighty36 · 19/04/2016 at 11:14


    stavros · 19/04/2016 at 08:54

    your dpp is non existent to challenge the top you will need a zorko montanya and maybe even amt though you may have missed the boat good luck

      Wighty36 · 19/04/2016 at 11:16

      What do u mean by that? Why do u need dpp i have 5 of them in fwd line

        Southern S · 19/04/2016 at 15:01

        Don't worry you haven't missed anything.

Andrew · 18/04/2016 at 23:21

Got $334k to spend, do I go Papley>Merrett or wait a week or so until one of my fwd rookies rises in price and jump on Montagna (just short of $ going Papley > Montagna this week)

    Southern S · 19/04/2016 at 00:43

    Depends if convinced by merret as a top forward this year.

    You jumping on any of the defender downgrades?

    Adam · 19/04/2016 at 08:38

    I would go Papley to DBJ if he gets a game

      Andrew · 19/04/2016 at 09:39

      I downgraded S Gray to DBJ via DPP to get some $

    Ben · 19/04/2016 at 16:10

    Merrett will drop in price

Mitchell · 19/04/2016 at 01:01

need some help with potential trades this week community

team is
shaw simpson jj weitering dea seedsman amt m.brown
danger fyfe gray wines libba parish mills degoey r.davis dunkley hewitt
goldy martin cox
hall wells zorko m.adams kerridge papley menadue mccarthy

i have 367k in bank
obvious one is offloading jj was thinking doing so by subbing adams into defence and then getting a forward in dahlhause/merrett or can than trade degoey forward line and get a premo mid
than who else to cull out of seedsman/papley/hewitt?? and to another premo or is byrne-jones a must have this week?

appreicate your thoughts community!

    Southern S · 19/04/2016 at 01:20

    I'd think about Ablett and Byrne Jones for JJ and Papley. Thinking sydney will rest Papley this week, may not see him again for a while.

Nick · 19/04/2016 at 01:43

When trading say a back for a fwd using a dpp can it be done using the SC app. I can do it using the browser but can't for the life of me figure out how it works on the app….help !!!

    Southern S · 19/04/2016 at 01:48

    The app is terrible I can't even work out how to select the player you are trying to trade in.

      Luke · 19/04/2016 at 07:19

      Swipe right on then player you are trying to trade in. Took a while to find it. I think I will just stick to the browser. The app is shit every year.

        Kev · 19/04/2016 at 08:27

        It's an ordeal but I figured it out.

        Example. Trading out Papley via dpp.
        Step 1: Tap on Papley, tap on the red T
        Step 2: Tap on the "trade out" icon along the bottom
        Step 3: Your dpp players are highlighted in grey. Swipe left on one (Adams for example) and tap the S
        Step 4: Tap the "trade in" icon along the Bjorn and select your new defender

        The app isn't too bad. Take some time to swipe and tap on things until you learn your way around it

          Nick · 20/04/2016 at 20:23

          Cheers will give it a crack

Tommo09 · 19/04/2016 at 07:38

Rance or Docherty or a forward via Tippa???

Swans2012 · 19/04/2016 at 09:00

Seeing a lot of one up one down being done this week, personally I think this is the week for two down, four good defense rookies in the bubble (a pair of Byrnes, Wagner and ruggles). Just worried they might be a bit thin in the coming weeks if we miss these. I'm going smear to Byrne jones, and lonergan to byrne/rug/wag probably byrne. With existing bank Will leave 568k to start the upgrades over the next fortnight when mills/benken/young etc top out.

    Derek · 19/04/2016 at 09:52

    The idea is to make cash, but not to burn trades to make small amounts. Hold rookies until their BE is greater than their average has always been the general rule.

    I'd prefer to squeeze another $50k out of Paps and wait for Keays, Petracca, Rice, Collins to come along. As long as they are named, hold. If they have a poor score, it will drop out of their calculations in 2 weeks

    Remember Oxley last year.

      Swans2012 · 19/04/2016 at 10:30

      Very true, oxley came good, but papley is a small forward who had two good weeks. I'll be really surprised if paps holds his spot, in fact he won't, and as far as waiting for the extra 50k goes, he might get there but it'll be sssslllllooooowwww. Ill take the fast cash from my bench players and move them on thanks.
      That said you did have trades left last year when I didn't 😉

        Derek · 19/04/2016 at 10:54

        i agree if he isn't named he is gone.

        Like you said, only takes 1 good score and he can ride that for another couple of weeks

          The Ranger · 19/04/2016 at 11:50

          We could do with a mid rookie or two being named soon.
          I'm also a little concerned that all of these slow scoring rooks are going to peak in price at the same time.
          I got caught out by that last season.

    Southern S · 19/04/2016 at 14:28

    A problem with grabbing a couple of these defensive rookies is they could score very low, and a lot of people have very thin defensive lines already this year.

    Pete · 19/04/2016 at 17:04

    Cannot see Papley increasing $50k more this season, In fact I think he will struggle to make a extra $5k, if he plays this week and scores another 30-40 that would then hike his Break even to around 90 which is highly unlikely.

    The guy is ordinary and will need to score a 80 odd for him to be worth holding, I prefer to go with the odds, he may increase $5k unless he has a blinder this week but doubt it.
    He had two blinders and ever since he ha stuffed it, TRADE Paps out, keeping him makes no sense especially when you have players such as Byrne Jones to bring in.

    Pi$$ him off guys.

Jack · 19/04/2016 at 09:12

Hey, Guys

In bit of a dilemma here

I'm going to trade Papley to D. Bryne Jones (via Brown DPP)
and cash in 100k. I bellieve papley wont increase in much price, due to his high BE and the possivility of being dropped
Do you think I should trade him to D bryne jones or Papley??

With this cash, I am looking to trade Rockliff, even though I have held him this long
I am looking to trade him to Fyfe/ hanners or s mitchell
should i hold rocky as i have held him this long

Thanks COMMUNITY :))

    Steeeve · 19/04/2016 at 09:20

    You're asking if you should trade Papley for Papley… I'll assume you meant trade Papley for Ruggles. In which case you can't go wrong with Ruggles or DBJ. Wait and make sure one is named. If both named, Ruggles should make slightly more money and DBJ should have slightly better JS.

    And Rocky is likely to be back this week, don't be the guy who trades him out the week he scores 150.

@CallumGoode51 · 19/04/2016 at 09:14

JJ is only 6-8 weeks now and doesn't need surgery, could he be worth holding on the bench? Anyway my trade options for this week are

Keep JJ, trade Papley and Kennedy to Merrett and Byrne-jones, 60K in bank, but JJ on bench could be traded later if necessary.
Trade JJ to Rance/Doherty and Papley to Byrne-Jones, 232K in bank
Trade JJ to Callan Ward and Papley to Byrne-Jones, 180K in bank

    Kev · 19/04/2016 at 09:42

    JJ needs to go, 6-8 is far too long to keep a premo on the pine.

    Grahame Lebroy · 19/04/2016 at 09:50

    Agree with Kev that's to long to hold. I would only hold keepers for 3 weeks or under, in some cases not even 3

    Derek · 19/04/2016 at 09:54

    Too long to keep. Even I'm not that patient

    Northernsoul74 · 19/04/2016 at 11:44

    Where have you read it's just 6-8 weeks? Bulldogs are getting more advice on the injury so nothing confirmed either way. They will be very conservative with him as well.

    @CallumGoode51 · 19/04/2016 at 13:07

    I've decided to bench him for this week and go Merrett and Bryne-jones. But fair comments their might trade him in a couple weeks

      Southern S · 19/04/2016 at 14:25

      Why bother you'll have a premo on the bench and then if stuff hits the fan next week you'll be in strife. You don't need merrett yet and he's not going to skyrocket in price. Deal with the problems as they come or they can compound.

Wayno76 · 19/04/2016 at 09:35

Any news on S Martin playing next week and does it look like M Cox will get a run . Don't want to waist a trade on Martin if coc plays I'll keep him

    Tommy · 19/04/2016 at 11:59

    Martin passed the concussion test yesterday. Mason cox does look like he may get a run this week due to Cloke's elbow injury.

Andrew · 19/04/2016 at 09:53

In all 4 games so far Z Merrett has scored higher in fantasy than SC, should we be worried with this?

    JamiesNinjas13 · 19/04/2016 at 10:35

    Fantasy is only based on pure stats, sc takes the influence the player has into consideration. Therefore fantasy will be more consistent in scoring.

    Phil · 19/04/2016 at 15:09

    I've watched Essendon play a few times this year and they are a very high possession team. They had more possessions than Geelong but lost by 30 points. Against Port and Gold Coast they had about the same but lost by 60 points. I'd say all Essendon players in general would have higher DT than SC just because of they way they play. Nothing to worry about I would have thought.

Josh · 19/04/2016 at 10:06

Hey all. I am planning to trade jj (gutted) to Byrne-j and get rid of paps for either Merrett or Mitchell. Economy wise I feel it's better to get Merrett however I'm more interested in league wins due to a poor start and think Mitchell would be a good vc option against the top dog in my league??

All Thoughts appreciated. Currently have wells at F3 (another positive to Merrett over Mitchell) and shields at m6

    Josh · 19/04/2016 at 10:10

    Sorry zaha at m6

Boltons Blues · 19/04/2016 at 10:31

Martin passed his first test and is in line to play this week
Bucks said hes swinging the axe this week, dont be surprised if Cox does play

    Southern S · 19/04/2016 at 14:30

    Is he willing to swing it at himself and the team selectors though?

Thomas · 19/04/2016 at 10:50

Hi community!!
My team is this:

Houli, JJ, laird, Weitering, Adams, McKenzie (AMT, Hartley)

Ablett, Pendles, Ward, Jelwood, Sidebottom, Libba, kennedy, Mills (petracca, davis, Gresham)

Martin, Z Smith (Wyatt)

Zerrett, Franklin, Greene, De Goey, Wells, Kerridge, (Menadue, Brown)

I was thinking about going JJ up to Docherty and Mckenzie down to DBJ, leaves me with just under 300k to upgrade Zac Smith next week. Is this good trades or is there a better one? Would love to hear your opinion!!

    derek · 19/04/2016 at 13:05

    i would be looking at how to get Fyfe in your team. his 141 last week was a class above, he aint going to get cheaper.

      Thomas · 19/04/2016 at 13:56

      yes, you are correct i do need to get him in, might do next week as i will have close to 300k to upgrade, but my defense is looking quite thin at the moment.

JamiesNinjas13 · 19/04/2016 at 10:50

Community: Brodie Smith or Elliot Yeo?

    Andrew · 19/04/2016 at 11:06

    Yeo for me but has the tendency to throw a stinker once in a while

    Southern S · 19/04/2016 at 14:31

    Neither, wait until you have enough for a 500k defender.

The Beard · 19/04/2016 at 11:24

Would love some opinions Zaharakis or Merett the better pick?

Leaning towards Zaha purely because they avg the same and hes a bit cheaper still.

    Spifflicator · 19/04/2016 at 11:57

    Always go the DPP when choosing.

      The Beard · 19/04/2016 at 12:00

      It really comes down to who will be the more likely consistent scorer over the year. Thoughts anyone?

      Southern S · 19/04/2016 at 14:33

      No way. Always go the guy you think is the best and will play well all year.

      I think Zaha because he has more experience but Merrett is really impressive for his age so who knows.

Alphie · 19/04/2016 at 11:25

Im very confused. How are people trading paps to the jones's if paps is only a forward and cannot be swung?

    Big G · 19/04/2016 at 11:29

    by subbing Papley for a forward/defence option such as Tippa or Brown.

      JamiesNinjas13 · 19/04/2016 at 11:43

      1. Trade out Papley
      2. Move a dual position player (brown, adams, tipungwuti) from defense into forward line
      ***This opens up an empty spot in your defense***
      3. Trade in Jones

    derek · 19/04/2016 at 12:34

    have a look at the discussion earlier in this thread. will explain it all.

      derek · 19/04/2016 at 12:39

      look for a post by "Andy" on first page

        TySB · 19/04/2016 at 13:45

        Wait I'm a bit confused… So are we trading in a random fwd defence player for parley then swinging him into the backline and then trading him to Jones ?

          TySB · 19/04/2016 at 13:48

          Forget that ^

Mitch · 19/04/2016 at 11:29

Do we straight swap jj or use him to make cash for our structure?? I tend to think our rookies can cover for him and there seems be no outstanding defender selections (already have shaw/laird)

    Northernsoul74 · 19/04/2016 at 11:47

    Depends on how deep your defense is. JJ is my d3 so downgrading to a rookie leaves me way to thin. If he's your d4 id be tempted to downgrade.

    Spifflicator · 19/04/2016 at 12:03

    I'm warming to the idea of Fantasia. Averaged 91 from his 3 games, $321k. Definitely in Essendons best 22 and won't tagged ahead of the Zaks, and plays a SC friendly role. Hard to pass up the cash that dbj and Byrne are going to make though.

      Southern S · 19/04/2016 at 14:34

      Yep he's been solid and is slipping under the radar.

    CapTkaOs · 19/04/2016 at 12:09

    I'd downgrade him to one of the rookie defenders on the bubble. This week will probably be the best for while to pick up another rookie defender. The good rookie defenders- Weitering, Adams, AMT are scoring well at the moment and should keep making money for a while looking at their breakevens.
    The cash will be very useful in the next few weeks.

blacky · 19/04/2016 at 12:07

Where i stand now i have $345k in the bank but am having trouble deciding what to do

Option 1: Kerridge OUT Mitchell IN with only loose change left to spare
Option 1.5: Kerridge OUT Gaff IN
Option 2: M. McGovern OUT Zach Merrett IN with $20k left in the piggy.

Help pls!

    JC23 · 19/04/2016 at 12:12

    i like all of these options you have given! Can see you are in a tough position… Wouldn't want to be in your position!!! Good luck

            Supercoach God · 19/04/2016 at 12:36

            I can help you with your spelling but your team is a lost cause.

    derek · 19/04/2016 at 12:31

    i would be holding onto Kerridge for a bit. he is averaging 84 so should get another $100k from him before you have to cull.

    SMitchell is doing well, but at $611k you are paying $24k more than people who started the season with him. Not sure he will be a keeper.

    Gaff is cheaper than his starting price, but his score on the weekend was a result of Priddis not playing, can't see him scoring many 130+

    I'd be looking top 10 players like JPK, Sloane & Selwood at around the $540k price or even the Bont @ $489k, meaning you don't need to cull kerridge yet, maybe only need to get rid of Paps.

      blacky · 19/04/2016 at 12:40

      Thanks mate appreciate it! Do you think i should go McGovern to Merrett Then or just hold my trade for the week?

        Supercoach God · 19/04/2016 at 12:47

        Why not Daisy, cheap as chips and guaranteed a game as Carlton suck. Or go with the one and only Zac Dawson.

          #StandbyDons · 19/04/2016 at 12:53

        derek · 19/04/2016 at 13:04

        i'm not a big Merret fan. mainly because he is playing for a team i thought (and still might) be on the end of some floggings. he is proving me wrong.

        McGovern still have cash to be made, and as crows draw gets a bit easier he might score ok.

    Tommy · 19/04/2016 at 13:59

    Supercoach god, your being a tosser,

    Don't take out Kerridge just yet. He still has money to make.
    Zach Merrett is looking like a very good player if you have him forward. Gets the hard ball and lays plenty of tackles.

    If i was you, i would be doing choice 3

      derek · 19/04/2016 at 14:11

      out of those options…. 3

        Southern S · 19/04/2016 at 14:37

        McGov has a negative BE………….

          derek · 19/04/2016 at 15:22

          i did say out of those options, i wouldn't do any of them, but if i had to make a choice, 3

    Southern S · 19/04/2016 at 14:37

    You are trading out players that don't need to be traded. Why?

CapTkaOs · 19/04/2016 at 12:19

I'm surprised so many are turfing Mitch Brown this week. OK, there are some bubble boys available. But I think Brown has better JS, is still cheap to have sitting on your bench, and his dpp gives a bit of flexibility to use AMT and Adams for plugging temporary holes forward and back. If he generated another 100k profit I might start to understand cashing him in.

    Boltons Blues · 19/04/2016 at 12:57

    if he pumps out a 70-80, his BE will be in the neg next week = profit

    i think brown is the least of the worries for most teams, considering Papley was hot property 2 weeks ago

    Spifflicator · 19/04/2016 at 13:34

    Agreed Brown has another 40k to make. Even Papley has another $40k, he won't go up this week, but then he has a 40 & 20 to drop off.

      BlakeyP · 19/04/2016 at 15:11

      Papley will not make another 40k. His high scores came in games when swans had big wins and some of their guns where out. The swans now are a different team to 4 weeks ago and he will be lucky to get picked this week. Take ya 120k and move him onto one of the def rookies

        derek · 19/04/2016 at 15:21

        if he isn't picked he is gone.

    Russ · 20/04/2016 at 00:32

    If they're turfing Brown for Byrne Jones, they're just chasing fool's gold, byrne Jones won't keep his job….he may not even appreciate enough to make money after first week.

Pom · 19/04/2016 at 13:12

Wayne Milera, break even of 61. Wanted to hold for longer, but he has to get culled now correct? Or was his score on the weekend putrid for a reason?

    CapTkaOs · 19/04/2016 at 13:17

    Won't play this week. Has a quad injury according to the Crows website

      Pom · 19/04/2016 at 13:56

      Cheers lad. Makes the decision to flick a lot easier!
      I've done Papley to Byrne jones, I have 258k in the bank, who to trade to? Or I might just hold Milera till a decent prospect arrives next week though.

derek · 19/04/2016 at 13:13

Zac Dawson is now $500 more expensive than his starting price. i think everyone may have missed the boat on this one.

    Sorry stavros but that's a really shit trade don't drop either Kerridge or Kennedy as they still have lots of cash to generate
    Jarrad Grant is playing for Gold Coast seconds team and might not even play
    Go have a long hard look at yourself in the mirror if that's the trade your going with

    Russ · 20/04/2016 at 00:30

    I don't think you're joking Stavros, if you have to pick one, Kerridge goes, he's in a crap team, and will score crappier than Kennedy I feel in the future, although I'm just guesstimating.
    Make sure Grant is getting a game first though.

    I'm going with JJ down to Byrne-Jones as well leaving us both quite thin down back
    Wait a couple of weeks then go bang bang and upgrade Menadue and Ryan Davis

breakevens · 19/04/2016 at 15:22

34 touches for Petracca on the weekend with Casey

    Russ · 20/04/2016 at 00:25

    He might be good if he ever gets a game.

My rankings have gone 19,105 > 1,278 > 533 > 98 If it wasn't for bad captains decisions in rounds 1 and 2 I would now be ranked number 1.

I have achieved this by ignoring every subsequent comment from any members who have touted old wives tales and myths such as 'Chasing points' 'Too long in the tooth' 'Not a keeper' etc. and I've only made team decisions based on my own data analysis and observations.

Like everybody else I have suffered shockers from Premos and made bad selections-ZSmith but I have still been able to follow my strategy of 'score as many points as possible' if you have an alternative strategy you are a bit dim.

Earlier in the season I tried to share my insights and wisdom with this community and I was virtually assaulted by a multitude of ignorant fools who know almost nothing about football or Supercoach other than what they read on the latest bandwagon, to those I say "Suffer in ya Jocks losers"

This week I will be trading MBrown-D8 for DBJ and MCrouch-currentM8 for Zarahakis

    Hi Smasher, congratulations on an excellent start to the season.
    I think you'll find if you look back over your posts that often you've taken what could be read as a fairly sarcastic or aggressive tone and that often that has put peoples backs up.
    Your opinions are normally forthright and definite and they may well be based on firm data and analysis but no one likes being browbeaten online.
    I guess that ultimately if you don't like this site you could just not come back?
    Which would be a shame because when you tone down the arrogance you often give good advice.
    Best of luck for the rest of the year.

    Good for you Smasher.

    I think it is important to make your own decisions, after all you have to live with them, not those with opinions whom may not be in the same circumstance.

    That said I often find clarity from reading comments on this site, some I follow, others I dont, in the end input is always great, but the performance of my team depends on me, and the same goes for everyone else.

    I have had the rapid climb that Smasher has, but its a marathon, not a sprint, and sometimes its important to forego points in one week for the betterment of the team over the season (ie. sitting Priddis on the bench last week).

    My team is ranked 122, having climbed approx 300 positions in each of the last 2 weeks. I have my structures in place have only traded for injuries (28 trades remaining), and wont trade my rookies until they reach close to maximum value, despite how tempting it may be to cash them in.

    Again well done Smasher, keep up the good scoring.

    You won supercoach 2016.

    Russ · 20/04/2016 at 00:23

    You're always better off listening to your own instincts, rather than comments on here, many on here believe they're some kind of prophet, and find the next week they're ranked 33000, no one knows the future, what's gonna happen, it depends on solid research and a lot of chance and luck, you may be doing ok now, but ranked 20000 in 3 weeks time, it doesn't really matter, in the grand scheme of things, as long as we have some fun along the way, and don't become obsessed by it all.

murray · 19/04/2016 at 16:05

this week I was thinking:
papley to Byrne-Jones and
SGray to Zorko

Is this a sound set of trades

Been offered Dusty for Barlow and Jack Steven. Thoughts?

    Southern S · 19/04/2016 at 16:51

    Offered both players player for Dusty? Sounds like a good deal as you'll have more players than anyone else in supercoach.

Luc · 19/04/2016 at 16:57

I'd be able to pick another player from the free agent list! So essentially Dusty and player X (Bastinac, Curnow, etc) for Barlow and Steven. Upgrade from Barlow to Dusty in the forward line but a downgrade in the mids.

Luc · 19/04/2016 at 16:58

(draft league if this wasn't evident)

    Southern S · 19/04/2016 at 18:38

    Yeah I was confused and have no idea about draft league sorry!
