PatchCoachKingsLogoThere’s something to be said for toilet humour.

It’s a nice little reminder that we were once ten years old, without a care in the world, where could be knocked over in fits of laughter by the mere mention of the word “poo”.

Life can be a cruel mistress sometimes, and often toilet humour, in it’s beautiful and nostalgic and silly way, makes it a nicer place.

This is one of the reasons I love Steele Sidebottom. Though I know he will be sick to death of it, a small part of me giggles inside whenever I hear his name. It’s stupid and foolish but I mean I’m 12 years old at heart.

However, the Sidebum took it too far this weekend. Not content with having a mildly amusing last name, old mate Steele decided to draw us a picture with his heat map.

Steele Sidebotton Heat Map

True artwork. They should hang it in the National Gallery of Victoria amongst other giggle-worthy football paraphernalia, like Fremantle’s premiership window, a rare Collingwood supporter’s tooth and that machine they used to reanimate Charlie Dixon.

Anyway, I hear you say, is that all you have to say? Come along, don’t be a goose, you sound just like that Dr Zuess! Come on son, you have to strive to give us the news about round five!


Poetic frivolities and toilet gags aside, football rolls on. Christian Petracca is a chance to make his debut, named on an extended bench for Melbourne. Word is he will only be an emergency, but this is indeed promising news. Jayden Hunt joins him on that extended bench, as does Ben Kennedy, which is a bit scary.

Furthermore, we see the return of George Hewett and Lincoln McCarthy to go alongside the debuts of Mason Cox and Daniel Currie (who has played at AFL level, but it’s his first game for the Suns). Sam Grimely has been named on Essendon’s extended bench, but I feel he’ll be culled before ANZAC day.

Sydney goalsneak Tom Papley also survived at the selection table, which is great news due to his easy run of games after this week, but Wayne Milera is out with a quad for the next fortnight, allowing replacement Charlie Cameron a chance to cement that spot.

Rolled gold returns this week, as Josh Gibson, Matt Priddis and Tom Rockliff are all named for their respective sides. For those with points of difference in Devon Smith and Corey Enright, they also return.

Speaking of rolled gold, it’s the time of year Brett Deledio remembers he’s a professional footballer, and part of that job involves actually playing AFL football. He’s been named to face the Lions, as have Ivan Maric and Anthony Miles.

Stefan Martin has been named to play following Steven May’s huge hit on him last weekend. May will miss five games for the terrifying, but admittedly impressive ability to knock a 200cm, 100kg man running at full flight deep into the surface of the Gabba.

Suns playmaker Trent McKenzie has reinflated his nose and is right to play the Roos on Saturday. However, Dion Prestia is out with illness, which might allow Jesse Longergan to score us some goddam points. If he can’t do it now, will he do it? Callum Sinclair returns. Eagles ruckman Scott Lycett is also suspended this week.

And, of course, Jason Johanissen did his hamstring kicking a monster goal from 55 out on the weekend, and needs to be traded.


Jason Johanissen has gone down for ten weeks following his blistering start to the season, causing tears of anguish down at the kennel, and, more importantly for us, in our eyes. Special mention to those who traded him in last week – which is a lot of people. I feel your pain.

But, he’s got to go. But to whom? There was a lot of debate surrounding this on the podcast, and I firmly believe we have to trade him to another rolled gold premium. He was looking to be a top 6 defender, and I’m replacing him with someone I believe will be a top 6 defender, Lekdog’s man Sam Docherty. Giant playmaker Heath Shaw will undoubtedly be the number one defender this year, and is now over 50k cheaper than he was at the start of the year. However, with a breakeven of 130, I’m waiting on him for another week or two. Alex Rance also showed why he’s held in such high regard, busting out a 140 last week and one of the more solid trades you could make. Honourable mentions to Bachar Houli and Kade Simpsons, who I put just below those three.

[Cheers to James for picking me up on this; I glossed over Rory Laird who should also be one of the top 6 defenders this year, and looks top notch.]

If you’re strapped for cash, I really like what we’ve seen from Daniel Rich this year. I know a few Rich owners have traded him out after he was tagged to death and playing while injured and sick against North. I reckon he’ll bounce back, and should make a top 10 defender. Still around 400k, he’s looking a better option than Shannon Hurn (who I have). If you’re really strapped for cash, Orazio Fantasia has three 90+ scores from three games and looks comfortable across half-back. Buyer beware, but bargain in the making at 400k.

Otherwsie, if you want to build the war chest and have the cover, Darcy Byrne-Jones or Ciaran Byrne are the two blokes you should be targeting. Tom ‘Rugmuncher’ Ruggles, while having a very amusing name, doesn’t have great job security, and I don’t like the volatility of Melbourne’s rookie selections, so would avoid Josh Wagner.


A collection of numbers that decide if numbers players score on the weekend makes their overall number go up or down. It’s a whole lotta numbers that sometimes don’t make a whole lotta sense, but small number = good for making do$h, big number = they’ll sink.

Eddie Murphy’s

-85 – Darcy Bryne-Jones
-61 – Ciaran Byrne
-57 – Tom Ruggles
-51 – Josh Wagner
-48 – Lincoln McCarthy
-36 – Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti
-8 – Mitch McGovern
-6 – Jacob Weitering
2 – Michael Hartley
9 – Marcus Adams
16 – Darcy Parish
16 – Sam Kerridge
20 – Callum Mills
29 – George Hewitt
56 – Ben Kennedy
62 – Tom Papley

Dan Aykroyd’s

199 – Luke Hodge
177 – Chad Wingard
163 – Matt Priddis
157 – Stefan Martin
155 – Dustin Martin
153 – Robbie Gray
136 – Scott Pendlebury
127 – Gary Ablett
124 – Heath Shaw
119 – Sam Gray
118 – Oliver Wines
104 – Daniel Rich


Todd Goldstein is the obvious choice for VC this weekend, as he comes up against his old protégé in Daniel Currie, who will be rucking solo against him at Metricon. Matt Priddis loves a contested game, and that’s exactly what he’ll get against the Swans. Patrick Dangerfield might also be worth a look, if you can trust him after two very un-captaincy like scores in four weeks from him.

For captaincy choices, I’d look to Callan Ward against the Saints and Nat Fyfe against the Blues. I expect both of these blokes to rip it up against weaker sides.

My smokie this week is Josh Gibson. Back off a rest, floating in and out of the Adelaide forward line, could do a huge amount of damage. If I had him, I’d be chucking the VC squarely on him.

That’s it from me, community! Good luck this week, and remember to check out Lek’s cheat sheet and Barron’s rookie report to get the full overview of fantasy footy analysis for this week. Also, make sure you get down and give CoachKings a shot. I mean who could turn down a shot at ONE THOUSAND DOLLARYDOOS!?

CoachKings Cash

Just pretend I photoshopped it, okay? Anyway, good luck, community! Would love to hear your trades, your captaincy moves, and how you’re faring overall!

See you in the comments!

6.00 Edit – Sunday teams have been announced and Christian Petracca has NOT been selected, however, Ben Kennedy is safe. If you were sucked in by Lekdog and have Nick Graham, he’s been dropped, and Darcy Tucker is in for the Dockers. Jacob Hopper has been named as an emergency.

And pocket-sized Bulldog Caleb Daniel will miss this week’s game!

Should VC be on GAJ or Goldy???
Will Petracca play???
Is Gresham to Byrne a good trade???
These are questions that are bugging me
Thanks community


I'd go Goldmember, Thommo, but you can't go wrong with either.
I don't think Truck will play this week, unless Garlett goes down with an ankle.
Yes to the trade if you need cash generation.


Thanks patch
Awesome work Patch by the way


Gresham or Dunkley out


No worries mate! Gresham seems less likely to get back into the side at this stage, but I wouldn't be surprised if neither of them are used until late, late in the season.


Should I keep Gresham for his late games for the loophole option


he is already back




who is gresham?


Saints player




He's my VC


It's not worth wasting a trade to Byne to make only 20k


Definitely going to trade Milera to DBJ, is it worth doing another trade going Papley to Byrne?


I'm personally holding Papley, if only because I'm getting rid of JJ and Milera. If you've got trades to 'Byrne' then do it, if you've used 4 or more already I'd probably hold


Hi Patch, is going papley to DBJ worth it or should I just hold papley and wait for other rookies?
I was also going to trade J Lonergan for Doc but is that worth it now that prestia is out?


I'm having the exact same predicament, going with milera to dbj and holding papsmear. Mainly to try and reign in my rampant trading patterns that left me high and dry at the end of last season.


Surprised Laird wasn't mentioned as a viable option for JJ, good write up nonetheless


I completely glossed over him as I thought everyone had him! Cheers for pointing that out, James!


trades this week

Clayton Oliver to Nat Fyfe
JJ to Byrne-Jones

i'm holding Papley for at least one more week

thoughts ?


Did the exact same but I already had Fyfe so I backed in Hannerbery

If Byrne – Jones can score 90 odd in a demolition derby for his side, he surely can keep up that score


Why are you trading Oliver? More cash to be made there and he's only being rested, should be back next week.


I dont think we can trust Nat Fyfe as he is new to the league and may struggle to keep up with the speed of the game. Byrne-Jones looks like more of a solid option as he has been around the league a lot longer and has much more experience.


i like the idea of experience.
using that idea it might be good to consider dustin fletcher or matty scarlett

clubber lang

kevin bartlett was named on the wing for richmond

Average Joe

Nathan Buckley is also said to be playing on Monday; looks to be in better form than most of the players


Good luck with Papley getting to his B/E this week.


The idea is that even if he gets a 50 this week and drops a bit, the swans have an easy run of games after this where he will increase again.

My stones wouldn't allow me to hold him but I can't fault the logic of those who have.


Do you think it's worth holding onto papley? I could go papley to DBJ or I could trade out Davis or Menadue to him?


I'm in exactly the same boat mate, and I have decided to just let DBJ go. DBJ could come out and make me regret it over the next week or so, but I think because we know what Papley is capable of he is worth another shot.


I think you should look to trade in Josh Bootsma as he is one of the only Carlton players to show some balls out on the field.


Thankyou patch for your comments on the Sidebum and his pitch map. turned a tough day at the office into a great day.

i agree with what Jock said in the Casting of the Pod, your PANIC ROOM article is the best piece of literature written anywhere on the world wide web.

The Updater

Hello Community,

This week i will be trading Sam Gray to Darcy Byrne Jones via Brown,
but what should i do with Papley?
Hold him and hope either he scores in range or over his BE against geelong or


Go up for a premo to cover s gray.


is that pescty Jacobs from North melbourne playing this week? the one who did the tag on Rich a couple of weeks back. what are the chances of him going to Ablett this week, or even Hall?

i like Nic Nac as a VC choice. I watched him last week and noticed that him and Lycatt shared the stoppages about 60/40, both scored about 100SC points. Lycatt gets a week rest, Nic nat could go big.


That's an excellent point, forgot Lycett was suspended. VC currently on Parker but could change.


Gaz monstered Jacobs last year and he didn't have a shoulder. His record against North is just too arousing to ignore for vc


i think its a good week to put the vc on jesse white as i feel he will have a day out on anzac day and kick a bag


Yep will kick as many an Dawson


Except its the last game of the round and therefore worthless unless your captain is a last minute withdrawal


I'm up against you in one of my leagues this week. Beware of Bling Hoodie FC : ) Good luck!


Hey community running low on trades already with 25 left so I could not have too many donuts a bad start for me here is my team:

Defenders: laird, Bartel, B Smith, Weitering, JJ, Dea (Brown, Hartley)

Midfielders: Fyfe, Danger, Ablett, R Gray, O Wines, Rich, Libba, Mills ( B Ken, Menadue, Davis)

Rucks: Nic Nat, Gawn ( M Cox)

Forwards: Hall, Barlow, Wells, Adams, Kerridge, Tippa ( Papley, McCarthy)

Most likely going to go JJ to DBJ or the other byrce however I am thinking of keeping Papley because of my limited trades remaining and 1 game is all it takes to save his BE. Just wondering your thoughts on what I should do this week and how I can save my trades in the coming weeks with a few rookies peeking in 1-3 weeks, because last week i went hewett to hartley and crouch to B smith which didnt work out too well. Another option would be JJ straight up to Docherty or another premo but then I miss DBJ and byrce who both look pretty solid. Also a side not currently have 46,300 in bank before trades


going JJ to DBJ means that you will have to play either DBJ, Brown or Hartley on the field this week.

we already looked at swinging Rich back to defence but you only would have $510k to get a midfield premo, not quite enough to get anyone who would be a keeper.

i wouldn't jump on Docherty. the idea is to trade in your keeper premiums at their lowest price. Docherty has increased $18k this year, meaning you are at a disadvantage to those who got him at his starting price. wait for him to fall (they usually do at some point) or look at a premium keeper who has already fallen, if you wait a week you might get Shaw for $510, maybe.


If i wait a week i have to field hartley or brown which probably isnt the best idea


you can swing Tippa to defence (via Brown) put Tippa on field in defence and play either McCathy or paps on field in forwards

if you really like Docherty in your team, then get him this week with a straight swap from JJ.

you could wait to see how Shaw does this week. he has a 124 BE, so he will need to have another 70 to drop to within your one-trade price range (low chance), otherwise you trade JJ to DBJ and get Shaw in a few weeks when your other cash cows are culled.


So what fo you recommend I do?


At some point you are going to have to play this game for yourself and make a decision. You're getting so much advice daily you may as well just give your login and password to Derek and let him play for you.
Seriously I don't understand where the fun is in asking other people to make every decision for you.


I am not necessarily going to follow his opinion just like a wide range of opinions before I make my final choice haha


ahahaha the heat map is bloody brilliant. JPK left training early with a strapped achilles for those who have him. Nothing SC damning yet but keep a look out on that for tomorrow.


i think only in about 3% of teams. on my watchlist once he became cheap enough.

however it is significant for the other swan midfielders and how it will affect their scores.


Traded Johannisen down to Byrne-Jones
What forward premium should I bring in for Milera? Thinking Zorko or Buddy at this stage.

Or as a bit of a pod, thoughts on swinging Mcdonald-Tipungwati up forward and bringing in Shane Biggs at $425k? Coming off 120 last week and should step up in the absence of JJ and Bob Murphy

annoying old lady

I can do some clever trading to go from JJ and Papley -> Byrne-Jones and Ward

Papley probably has more cash generation to be had, but I'm going for overall rank (currently around 1300ish). Owners would be happy if he generates another 100K, but i think in my situation, sacrificing that for more points in the race to 50k is worth it.

Thoughts community?


Solid moves AOL. Ward is a Gun and is having a great season so far. Papley looks due for a rest and as you've said your going for overall so very good trades.

Carl J

If you're rank 1300 ish you might as well give up now, that is a shit house ranking and we've only played four rounds. You are obviously an amateur and need to actually have any idea on how to play SuperCoach before you comment on this site.

Boris Baconbeer

Note to Carl: only those who have actually won money can consider themselves as professional. Probably only those who have won 50k have only been a professional for one year. I know you could be proficient at something , but I think the term professional is used for someone who makes a living from the profession. Therefore there really are none :p
Btw I think ppl in the top 10000 are all on a par for ability in this game. It requires a little luck to get top 100 or win.


Note to self: shit he didn't actually say the word professional. So I should just stfu. 🙁


Is the J for jerk, Carl?


Love those trades, AOL!

annoying old lady

Cheers Patch, love you mate <3

Great article and great read if I don't say so myself! Keep em coming, you're the best!


Oh, stop it you! *blushes* You're the best!


I brought in Papley for quick coin. He made me coin. Happy to cull. Welcome, DBJ.

ben J

waste of trades you idiot, this game is not just about cash generation


The game is about fun, try having some benny.


No need for that kind of language mate. We're all friends here


You sir are the idiot have fun losing money on Papley when he scores bugger all again this week and is dropped


Yeah still have 28 trades left. Thanks for your useless input though champ.


Going JJ to either Danger or Rance + extra cash and Gresh to Byrne

I know the majority are going DBJ, but I am leaning towards Byrne. Just feel he will play every week if fit, not as confident in DBJ's job security if Port start playing proper footy again… Happy to hear counter arguments though!

I N Pieman

Magnificent Patch. Saw that heat map earlier in the week & wet myself. I'd be a little concerned about the spots all over it. Will be watching Rocky closely & hoping he drops under 500 shortly. Value doesn't get any better than that


where can you find the heat maps?

Big Dave

in your mothers crotch region


Cheers IN – it too good to pass up. I'm concerned about the spots but apparently they're not contagious if you only look at them – just don't touch the screen!


Hello community!

I am in the same boat as many people this week in being forced to get rid of JJ this week.I also want to get rid of Trent Mckenzie.
I am questioning whether to double downgrade to both Byrne's, or to bring in Docherty and DBJ. The double downgrade would leave me over 600k to spend next week in upgrading menadue/BKennedy to a ultra premo midfielder. While the premo/rookie inclusion leaves me with 234k in the bank. Which one would you guys go with?


Go the Crouching one's method. BANG! BANG! Double downgrade then you have plenty next week.


Yes, i should always have one eye to next week, but this trade leaves me very thin in defense, with only Houli and Laird being premos.


don't trade JJ, his cash generation is not over and i feel his form will continue to rise in the next month


i believe you are whats called a troll


would like some thoughts on my trade ideas for this week.
i feel that ablett has made a good amount of cash and i am worried he may get injured this round so am trading him pout in advance.
some options are:
bob murphy (dpp swing)
chris masten
nathan van berlo
tyson goldsack (dpp swing)

i am also looking to trade aaron hall as i think his cash generation is over.
is minchington or jack anthony the better option ?


Big Dave

I would look to lock in Jack Anthony for thee rest of the season as he can kick some elite level creative goals. Darren Minchington also look like a good option a he is a jet and will be playing more and more minutes in the ones team throughout the season


thanks big dave,
what about bob murphy though ?
his form has been great the last two weeks

Big Dave

Yeah bob has been playing great and looks very tough out there, is quite a durable player and has little to no chance of getting injured

Not Renton Roberts

Gary Ablett -> Renton Roberts

Solid trade.

No Ragrets


I think it would be good to also lock in Farren ray as he is an upcoming star


What about bringing in JJ he is looking solid getting some big scores even got a 97 off not playing all game


Menadue to DBJ
Sam Gray to Byrne

Leaving me with a much needed 400k in the war chest

Sound good community?


i would get in levi casboult if you can because he is an elite cash cow and huge goal kicker


Flog/10 ^

Carl J

shut up jerald you absolute imbecile


you are actually a flog


Can someone pleas enlighten me on what "crap" he was saying. I was looking forward to seeing why this fella was being roasted.

Bullies are bitches

Look at all the big cool guys picking on someone because he tries to be creative. If there is a stain on this community, you flogs are it. Good job wank stains


go away


Trade Menadue or Papley for Byrne-Jones ( via dpp)


papley. Menadue's break even is 34 whereas Papley's in the 60's.


Thinking of going Barlow to ward, thoughts?




no mate come on do you even know anything


good call oldie, you sound like a very wise man, this guy is obviously stupid suggest trade ideas such as that


Like it, mate


Who is Patrick Field?

BJ sparkles

Good call Jerald, this guy absolutely has no idea what supercoach is and obviously an absolute cockhead


shut up you fool, get off this site it is not made for idiots

dedicated supercoach

Donald trump more funny rack off

The Weapon

Is DBJ a must have this week? could possibly trade papley but other than that no issues with my side


He's not a must have but ask yourself where the next rookies are coming from?


If you have the luxury of holding mate, I'd absolutely trade.


Hi folks I need some community wisdom this week, my team has only used 3 trades but has a mere $16k in the bank.

Shaw Houli Rich Lonergan Dea Adams – OMac Brown
Danger Gaz Parker Shiel Libba SGray Kerridge Mills – Hewett Davis Gresham
NicNat Martin – Grimley
Hall Robinson Barlow Wells Kennedy Tippa – menadue McCarthy

Do I just sit tight with no trades, use one trade and turn OMac into DBJ, or dump the 2 giant spuds in Lonergan and SammyG for DBJ and Fyfe?

I had been leaning toward the last option, but with Prestia out, Lonergan should get more time on ground, and Port just can't continue to be so bad can they? Should ride out the storm and just sneak in one extra cow?


That second option looks good. Fyfe is a must have for me and DBJ will earn heaps of cash.
Good team.
No trades would still work well. You could save them for later, instead of wasting them all now and having none at the end.


With you here, Thommo


Should I trade Clayton Oliver out for Luke Parker, or wait one more week for his price change and then trade?


Hold Oliver, he'll be back. Still plenty of cash to make out of him


I'd go this week, mate. I'd take the points.


id take the points this week mate, wouldnt want that overall ranking to drop to far.


Yep, pretty hard to argue against this one – thumbs up.


Should i trade de goey or papley for byrne jones?




I'd go Papley – grab some points off De Goey on ANZAC day

The Ranger

Hahaha! Gold Patch. Love ya work.

Nervous Coach

Awesome work Patch. The heat map would not look out of place at NGV. Thinking of trading Lonergan and Papley this week. My trade options are

1) Lonergan to DBJ and Pap to Buddy.
2) Lonergan to DBJ and Pap to Zorko
3) Pap to DBJ (via Adamns but means that I lose the ability to swap with AMT in the future as both would be in the FWD line) Lonergan to Zorko (via swap with Yeo) in the mid.
4) Lonergan to Docherty/Suckling and Pap to DBJ.

The last option gives me the most money in the bank ($118k/$190k) while Option 2 gives me the least ($41k). Not sure which would give me the best scores.

Any thoughts/advice much appreciated.




isn't 2 & 3 the same result? i think you need a few deep breaths and go for a walk around the block, you are trying to make it far to complicated and this is what happens.

Nervous Coach

Thanks Derek. I think I do need to take a walk around the block. Yes, 2 and 3 are the same with Yeo replacing Lonergan in Def. I'm thinking like Kev that Option 2 would be the best.


Pick an option community

Menadue to DBJ and Sherriden to Suckling
Mills to DBJ and Sherriden to Docherty

Other rookies I have are Dea, Tippa, Kennedy, Kerridge and Papley
Please give thoughts


Papley or Menadue for DBJ


Option 1


I like the first option more


The Rookie Rumble guys…

This week I'm looking again to roll with Weitering, Adams and Dea in Defence, Mills in the Midfield (will loophole him with Menadue though just to be safe using Davis), but for the Forwards it's a little more interesting and tricky.

Will play Kerridge and Tippa, but unsure who out of BenKen or McCarthy to play…

Thoughts community on who they'll play onfield for Forward rookies this week?


I think BenKen has done enough to be offered the gig.

i have similar decisions to make, no loophole available in forward line and i need to put one of either Paps, McCarthy or McGovern on the field.

I'm thinking Paps, only because with so many people trading him out this week, you know what the SC Gods will do!


McCarthy out of those 3 I reckon derek


cheers, thats who i have unless something changes.


Def McCarthy out of those 3


Cliffy, Could you please help me I also have Mills, Menadue and Davis. To loophole do I put Davis on ground and leave E on Mills. Swapping Davis to Menedue straight after Sydney game if Mills no good.


Patch I think there's a forgotten man in defence, maybe he was in a lot to start with or something but Kade Kolo


I'm with Jock here Leeds, I'm not sure he'll be a top defender until after the byes. He seems to take a long while to kick into gear, but when he does, lock him in.

Foot's ballers

We'll see how Greene goes this weekend, I'm calling him "spark plug" as he only fires every second stroke. Maybe he can buck the trend?


Ryan Griffin had the exact same problem last year when he moved to the Giants.

His first 9 weeks went 70, 118, 77, 113, 69, 107, 53, 120, 59…..


who should i bring in out of fyfe, ward or s.mitchell?


Id go with fyfe


fyfe is life


Great write up patch, went paps to dbj and stain gray to fyfe. Bang bang happy days $158k in kitty.
Read my mind vc'ing gibbo tonight into fyfe.
Couple of mini headaches deciding which rooks to play can only loop 1 I think. Cheers.


Cheers mate, the loop is a tough mistress, mate. Best of luck for ya!


Hello community!! Im bringing in a mid this week and looking at parker, hanners or gray. What are your thoughts? Im leaning towards hanners even tho he is most expensive! Would be averaging 130 if he wasnt knocked out round 1…..cheers!


hannerz is probably the best option for large outputs, gray is solid tends to have alot of low 100's


I'd wait for Gray. His price will drop. I plan to pick him up in a week or two. Toss a coin between Hanners and Parker.


Is Zerrett a must have forward this year?
Considering jj and papley to Dbj and Zerrett.
Leaves me with a very strong team but a very weak back line.


Same trades ive done this week with the same resulting weak backline, but im comfortable with this. Rookie backs havent let me down yet. Zerret looking a monty for top 6 forward.


You're hardly speaking to an unbiased source here, but I've seen enough to lock Zachy Merrett in for a top 8 position. I'm not confident enough to say top 5 or 6, because he will how brown stained games. I've locked him away though.

In regards to your backline – I'd make sure that's not too exposed. Zach will drop during the year, and I reckon you should get in a Shaw, Laird or Rance in ahead of those him, as much as it kills me to say it.


Marc Murphy out for Hannebery good trade??
Is Suckling a good option for JJ? (already have laird)


Stand by your premos.


I have Smurf as well mate. Im holding


So concerned a little about BenKen low down on the bench… thinking about switching him into the forward line and having Grimley/mena/brown on field…may just use E.. decisions!

I have the VC on Smitch for tonight's game, hopefully he can keep producing for me, he was my GAJ POD, happy with it so far, just would like GAJ as well.. next couple of weeks i think!

I brought in DBJ and Merrett this week, thought about Zorks, but thought the points are spread further in Brisbane lineup if they are all up vs Goddard, Zaharakakasisksiis and Merret.


Kennedy safe – nice POD VC mate! Like that thinking!


Great news! If Smitch fails, i think Fyfe vs Carlton for C


I'd get rid of Crouch first, mate.


Looking forward to a game against you Derek this week in Coreys League.
Hopefully I can extend you winless start to season for one more game. 😉


looking forward to the battle. i've had a few problems with my boys getting them all on the park. This week i'll be able to field a strong team. Might even put the C on Rocky!


lol. i just see that you are winless as well. i'm half a chance if my rucks can match your big buggers


Wrong Liam Derek.


Sorry nevermind.


I'm second guessing myself, do I trade Papley or not, he's has some easy games coming up?

Jonathan Camac

trade, in my opinion. Price is close to his max, might fluctuate heavily from here.




I'm holding, even a 40 and he will only lose 10k. If he makes his BE this week (60), next weeks BE drops to 40. IMO its worth the risk to hold and save the trade for later.


I'm with you, Andrew. Like that thinking, mate. In his first year Blicavs looked like he'd be stuck at 200k forever, but kept climbing and climbing for those who – unlike me – repaid the faith


dojng a double downgrade this week with my failed midpricers in Sheridan and Cutler down to the byrne Brothers pocket 550k which can go towards a De Goey + BenKen double upgrade to zorko and Montagna next week


Cutler got a 97 last week little tough on him


i agree. He will make some nice cash for you.

I'm trading gout JJ, obviously. But was thinking instead of bringing in Suckling, I might go for Fantasia. Is some $85k cheaper than Suckling, and his scores haven't dropped below 80 in three games! Thoughts community? Inspired or insipid?


I like it! think his BE is still pretty low ( 11) has an avg of 91.. however he has already gone up 50k ( but still cheapish). Do you see him as a keeper? I have picked him up in fantasy but not SC, only for the fact of the trades each week in AFLF, i will use him as a stepping stone for cash but if by the next 3-4 rounds he is holding then unless something better comes along he will be staying.

Should be interesting to see how he goes against swans in a couple of weeks.


This is my thinking too, CashCows. I just don't see him being a keeper, and while he'll make cash, I personally need to save the trades. If you've got them to burn, go for him. Just prepare for if he backfires!


Yes i think the masses may jump on him in SC but probably a waste of trade at this stage. Still sticking with the fantasy trade in through.

Would it be better I go for Laird or Suckling? Which one?

The Ranger

If you've got the cash get Laird

Jonathan Camac

Feel free to add me in your rivalries, community. Go to leagues, click on rivalries and add 'Camac Attack' as new rival. Is some great competition between us, last week Patch top scored! Kudos to you mate. Then check out the instagram 'supercoachscout' for the rivalry wrap up. Patch, you got a mention there for topping the rivalries. Good stuff mate, keep up the incredible work my friend. Get on board community!


How about this trade.

Papley OUT

Jarryd Lyons IN

He has only gotten around 70% tog this season but avg 88.

At 240k it's very tempting. Even to keep as a sub Emg once the squad is at full Premo.



He camein for crouch the big question is does he keep his spot when crouch is good to go

Jonathan Camac

I like him as a player – but maybe not at that price as much. But this game is all about the risk/reward. Up to you my friend.


Hmmmm. Interesting.

I'd like to know Why ADE continues to give him limited minutes and move him from HB to INT to FPocket over the 3 games he has been given a start (incl this rd).

His CP's were desireable considering his TOG.

Is Crouch really the biggest concern?,,,,, or is there another variable I'm not aware of. . . ?


tough game tonight. I think the Hawks at home, on Silky's 300th, they will be ready to go. Blokes like Lyons will be left behind


Thanks. If I'm super brave ill stick with it… Seems like I'm better off going Full Premo (as I have the ca$h)


Hmmm Nic Nat, Laird or Smith are my only Vc options this sucks that Cox is playing now stuck with Davis as loophole


Nic Nat without Lycatt, good choice


Anyone getting Menadue out does he need to go?


I'm giving him another few weeks, Belter


Hi community, is going papley to DBJ worth it or should I just hold papley and wait for other rookies?
I was also going to trade J Lonergan for Doc but is that worth it now that prestia is out? If I downgrade papley this week I can bring in Priddis next week with the warchest


i like the papley to DBJ trade but there will be others that disagree. Even if the Pap goes up in price, it wont be for a few weeks now and we know DBJ will increase by a fair bit. But it is still costing that valuable trade. Do you have Davis? im getting rid of him instead of the Pap.


Does using Davis stuff up your other lines. If I did that I would have Benken or Kerridge on bench in mid? Plus Adams or Tippa in fwds.


yeh trading davis out screws up my lines because I would have no dpp forward in my defence so ill have to keep davis and he should be back next week since hes getting rested anyway


Yeah get rid of paps, and if your sick of lonergans output like me just bite the bullet and trade him out he was a risk that didnt pay off


Hold Papsmear he wasn't dropped and if he plays bad he will only drop slightly which is enough to warrant a hold this week
