Leeds17

Cheers!

Leeds17

Anymore opinions guys and gals?

Marco_Polo94

Yeah, don't trade aha

Southern S

Gosh I hope you traded Mr. Burn Sam Gray.

Cliffy

Hey guys,

SC Draft starting choices to be made:

First in defense, start Fantasia or Biggs for Defender 3?

And secondly, start Greene or Riewoldt (Nick) for Forward 3?

Leeds17

I'd go Biggs and Rooey

fatboyfat7

Well I hope you didn't listen to Leeds! lol

Leeds17

well done for offering your opinion and setting him on the right path.. Oh wait just another after the fact sniper. Jog on.

andy_89

First year Supercoacher here community – picked up plenty of wisdom already from these boards. Had a bit of a conundrum this week with B Crouch on my bench along with Gore and Keays. Davis going down meant I needed to trade one of them to get a full team on the field.

Because I needed to trade JJ anyway. I ended up trading JJ to DBJ and then upgraded Davis to Ward. Too late now but wondering whether I should have traded Crouch, Keays (not too late) or Gore instead, or should I just cop a doughnut to conserve a trade and keep Davis's cash generation (I'd be down to 23 trades if I do both trades this week). Keen to hear everyones thoughts. Would've liked to drop Papley instead but unfortunately don't have an DPP players in my mids atm – potentially another issue and question whether I should get in a forward instead of Ward and put Hall in my mids to give me some flexibility there. Team at the moment (including the trades I mentioned) is:

Houli, Shaw, Kolo, Weitering, Dea, DBJ, (Hartley, Brown)

Ablett, Fyfe, Parker, Ward, Libba, Wines, Mills (Crouch, Gore, Keays)

Hall, Wells, Greene, Adams, Kennedy, AMT (Kerridge, Papley)

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Leeds17

Though Davis is listed as rested wouldn't surprise me if we didn't see him again this for a while even the season,

You're relying a bit heavly on mids to do the scoring for you with so many rookies on field though they've been scoring well,

I would suggest just picking up the bargain premos now over the next 4-5 weeks Dusty & Wingard maybe, I'm looking at Hodge as POD in midfield will be very cheap soon.

do't stress to much you look well placed

andy_89

Cheers Leeds, will stay pat then. Yea agree on the fwd and def lines – JJ going down didn't help! Thinking was to start with the mids as a priority as the most consistent high scoring looked to generally come from them. Will definitely look to fwd and def fallen premos over the next 4-5 weeks – cheers for the advice

Beezneez

Crouch should be back next week (likely) or the one after

Adds

doubt crouch will be back next week, not listed to play in the sanfl this week and would expect crows would want him to play at least one before coming back to afl side

Westy

Paps or L McCarthy on the ground. Been raining in Syd.

Qwert

Mccarthy. Can you loophole Paps?

Westy

Unfortunately no

Leeds17

Leaning towards McCarthy, fresh and raring to go.

Qwert

30 trades left and sitting in top 200. Trade Pap to DBJ or hold off. Either way, neither would be on field. All bench rookies playing bar davis and gresham. Look to upgrade sheridan in a couple of weeka. Any thoughts?

Josh

I would do the trade just for cash generation

Leeds17

agreed, though if you're producing cash alright you could hold and have yourself in a crazy good trade situation come byes

Beezneez

Both previous replies provide your options. I have the same dilemma with 29 trades and sitting top 1000. Was going to trade Papley to DBJ and Barlow to Zorko (who I wanted prior to round one). Am now thinking to just trade Paps to DBJ and assess my options to possibly bring in Zorko and Fyfe/Ward over the next two rounds. Papley to DBJ allows me to swing AMT to the fwd line and provide DPP options with M Brown and Adams. The one trade also allows me to assess Barlow/Greene and others such as BKen and Menadue as trade options. Darcy Tucker may also be one to watch and Petracca and Keays should not be far off being included and will provide good downgrade targets.

Qwert

Couldn't agree with you more. Need the cash as I only have $80,000 so thinking i'll bring in DBJ for some quick cash and hope to dodge injuries in comjng rounds and then bang bang soon enough!

kevwal

Let me get this straight. You have not traded in the first 4 rounds. You are in the top 200 and your are asking US for advice? Get a grip.

Crusty

I'm saying what kevwal says ……….

Anthony

Can anyone explain to me why Jacobs is scoring so low? It seems he is getting enough of the ball and enough hit-outs to warrant a decent score. But once again he gets a 75. Quite frustrating.

Mark B

I have Sauce and thought he played really well. 10 hit outs to advantage 17 possessions at 65% Eff. 2 frees for and none against. 9 pressure acts,8 score involvements and 3 clearanaces for 75 measly points. Very frusting

Leeds17

Check his hit outs to advantage maybe

SCaddict

Playing well and still scoring poorly is a major worry. God forbid he actually has a bad game. A definite 'sauce of frustration' as Pieman would say.

Jacob owners may have to look at trading him soon to one of the Big 3 as 5 weeks in with a sub 80 average and still tonless is just not tolerable for the dollars invested I would've thought. Will bleed another $20K unfortunately.

Big G

The whole SC scoring can sometimes be frustrating. Last night I thought Mitchell deserved more points. Sure he had the occasional clanger and chips it around a bit, but 87 for 31 midfield possessions?

Mark B

I had Mitchell as well as Sauce Big G so am licking my wounds on those SC scores. Was expecting 100+ for each but not to be

SCaddict

Yes it was bit of a funky game SC scoring wise. Only 5 tons across the board and 3 of them only barely.

Laird too had a pretty good game but could only piece together a SC score in the 70s with a much higher DT score. But Jacobs SC scoring has been a problem all season so far.

CapTkaOs

Maybe Danger not being at the stoppages has something to do with it?

Cliffy

Also guys,

Who to give the C to for SC Draft this week?

R.Gray, Parker or Hall?

Cliffy

Also guys,

Who to name as C for SC Draft this week?

R.Gray, Parker or Hall?

Cliffy

Whoops, thought the last post didn't go through went I posted again…

Cliffy

*when I

Kev

Gray. Should bounce back after a poor week last week. Hall if you want a smoky, been in fantastic touch

Davo

Guys, anyone know when the collingwood v essendon teams will be finalised? Cheers.

SCaddict

About 5pm AEST.

Davo

Thanks mate.

Mac

De Goey or Papley for Byrne-Jones?

Nokki

papley

Dom VB

Hope you went Degoey…

josh

Menadue or Davis to DBJ or hold

Brett

What's Trent McKenzie's BE ?

andy_89

105

Tophawk

Was 105, and will be about 150+ after this round. Expect another 15-20K to be wiped off his value this week.

andy_89

Which 3 of Kennedy / AMT / Kerridge / DBJ would you have on the field this week? Currently have Kerridge on the bench

Andy

VC on Goldy or Ablett?

Nokki

Goldy

Brett

15 mins and counting , decision time

jj – t mc / dbl
pap – gray/pendles/hanners/ward

Andy

Is downgrading to one of the bubble boys this week a neccessity? Have 28 trades and think they will be worth more later. Feel as though people are trading to get the quick influx of cash when the rookies we already have will get you there with just a little more time.

Already have most of the rooks (bar this weeks bubbles boys and petracca) and 245k in the bank. I have no real issues with underperforming premos either so my only real option is to go Menadue or Papley down. I dont think its worth it. Keen to here peoples thoughts. Cheers

Derek

Has been discussed all week. I'm holding and wait for the rookies to fatten properly

However many other good players are trading hard to generate cash.

Will depend on the type of player you are

The Ranger

I was going with Priddis as my VC but the weather in Sydney looks rubbish. Might be a low scoring game.

Liam

Think that will help a contested ball beast like Priddis.

Derek

Agree. Priddis loves wet

So does JPK

Tulendeena

You'll never let JPK go Derek 😉

John Baker

I'm still bloody so confused community.
I want to get in Byrne-Jones, however the only player I can get him in for at this stage is Papley who I want to keep in. If Papley spuds up again, there are not a lot of players who are on the bubble next week so I will be stuck with him… so even though I want to keep Papley, i feel we have to get rid of him.
Thoughts?

Paul

Same thing I'm wrestling with, Feel as though is you have most of the other rooks and something decent in the bank its a wasted trade. Trying to get a quick cash grab when Papley still has money to be made. One good score from the Papsmear will turn things round very quickly

Kev

Darcy Tucker from Freo is playing this week, he was very very good in nab 1 before injury ruled him out. Watch him as a potential def downgrade in a few weeks

Derek

One thing I noticed about last nights game was not many, if any, deliberate out of bounds. Maybe the umps are getting a bit less strict on them. 85 stoppages last night, higher than average for the year.

Marco_Polo94

What do people think about umpiring atm? Many condemning the umpires, but I see it as the associations fault. The rules are wrong.

The only thing I get annoyed at with the umpires are when they make a 50/50 call just to stamp their authority. You see this often in the centre, where two big units are smashing into eachother, grappling eachother all game in the ruck… Yet every once in a while an umpire decides this sport shouldn't be too rough and steps in and pulls a free kick out of his ass. Same for a high ball with two players under it jostling – often you see a player being awarded a free kick for simply being out muscled off the ball! As a spectator I don't want to see that crap! Afl is meant to be rough. I don't need some umpire awarding a cheap free kick for a hand placed on the back… Or a free kick for a big tackle.. Or "chopping the arms"… Most of these calls I find are too soft these days. When a genuine free kick is there it's obvious I think. We can all see when a player is unfairly pushed in the back, tackled in the back, when chopping the arms actually prevented the mark happening, when a kick is less than 15 m.. . I could go on all day. I just want to see play on called more often. Rules have gone too far in trying to protect players.

Too long didn't read: umpires need to let fifty fifty decisions go.

Rambos_Radish

I have 450k in my war chest and so want to upgrade Davis to either Robbie Gray or Callan Ward because I feel that its a bit too much cash to just be sitting on the pine.
I can afford anyone but these two stick out in my mind as the must haves!
Others include Luke Parker, Sam Mitchell, Matt Priddis. But are now locked out and so I would have to wait another week to pick them up.
Other Mids include Ablett, Fyfe, Danger, Selwood, Hall, Libba, Kennedy, Kerridge, (Mills, Menadue, DAVIS)

Any thoughts?

Nicholas

Hold davis he is only rested

Tophawk

Despite Papley's lively first quarter, he has butchered the footy severely. To put it in perspective he has 51 fantasy points and only 25 SC points for his efforts at the quarter time break.

The Ranger

25 a quarter will do me Tophawk!

Tophawk

I hear ya. Well he is right on track. 53SC points at half time. Another 10 points and he will be making cash again. I made one trade this week. No guessing what that was. Papley out for DBJ. That decision is looking more sour with every passing quarter. You get that…………….

The Ranger

You can't win 'em all mate

Nicholas

Makes me laugh with Papley me holding a player payed off for once, however he is on my bench. But damn. Parker and Priddis looking good I want to get them in my team soon. My Nic Nat vc isnt lookign too good like last week but some guy said he had parker vc he'd be pretty happy

Burndog

Me too mate! I was annoyed that I benched him, but remembered that he will get us some cash on the pine or on the field…so it's still a good move (for once).

I'm usually the bloke who holds and watches the wretched arsehole score a 10…or trades while they get a cricket score!

Derek

Well done

When in doubt, hold

magpie4ver

So people regretting they dumped Papsmear?

Tophawk

Starting to look that way. The little man is having a day out. I did not expect that from him in the first half. No going back. DBJ will have to continue to gain cash in Pap's place. Cheers

Brent

Was tossing up trading papsmear to byrne, happy I held off.
Still got DBJ by trading out Milera.

Having a good week

Box

No!

Rick Grimes

Hold Papsmear….

Swans2012

Yep happy to admit I may have got the papley call wrong…..

Derek

He looks A good player in the wet conditions

Kev

You're not alone, Swans! His d.e is the only thing that's making me not cry in the corner

Tommo09

VC on Goldy or Gaz???
Fyfe captain

Saundo

Hall

NickV

I got Papley in after his two hundreds, I had him on the field for his 40 and 20. Traded him out and he's gonna tonne up…what have I done to the super coach gods?!

tom

Same brother, being mad is an understatement.

Andy

Papley can EAD !

min0008

Made Parker VC and smashing it at the moment being on 78 at half time and on track for 130.

Dom VB

Lol at the people who traded Papley. His break even will be back in the negatives after this game.

Derek

he could be a lot better. Half time 85DT but only 54 SuperCoach, only going at 50% eff.

Derek

Mills on 49 at half time.

Rick Grimes

He's gone cold this quarter. Might not even breakeven. Haha.

Steeeve

Barely broke even and got reported…

Average Joe

His break even won't be in the negatives, even after this game his 3 round average is still below 50

Timmy

Ha Ha Ha. Agree

Paul

It'll be about 35. What do you think DBJ's B/E will be? I'll take DJB's 100+ on the field, thanks though. 😀

Adrian

Have l done the loop hole right vc on fyfe…put d wyatt (coll) on the field who is not playing and made captain…emergency on l mc carthy, as my captain is not playing l get the vc score for fyfe and the emergency score for mccarthy is that right?

If fyfe goes shit then l can put wyatt back onnthe bech bring mccarthy on and move the captain to danger

Thanks community.

tom

No because Danger plays before Fyfe. Put the VC on Danger

Adrian

Oh shit thanks mate….if l do it like that…then l have it right?

tom

I think so.

aza

everyone who traded Paply can suck it….

tom

he's only just over his breakeven.

Tophawk

He will only make peanuts this week. Only just passed his break even with 74. He fizzled out late in the game.

Derek

I liked that he played well and his JS looks good.

Pete

I am happy I made the Papley trade and bank a extra $115k rather then miss out on Byrne-Jones.
It's a NO brainer really because Papley will NOT make you the extra cash players like Byrne-Jones, Wagner or C Byrne will make you unless Papley starts to ton up in his next couple of games.

Hawks

Anyone know what score Mills is on now?

tom

66. Look at fan footy mate. Great website. Just look up Fan Footy.

Hawks

Thanks Tom

tom

87 now.

Derek

He done good

Derek

91sc

Alsx

Papley due to rise 2-8K. Welcome

SCaddict

It's all about the next 3 weeks against the Lions, Dons and Tiges. Could make another $100K now that his JS looks golden.

Welcome! 🙂

Davonaise

If it were not for his clangers he would have pumped out 100 today

Mac

did you keep him Addict? Because I didn't

SCaddict

I did hold the Smear but I had JJ to trade out for DBJ so I guess there was a silver lining to Top Deck Down.

Tim

BINGO!!!!!

Nicholas

Hey who should i go captain since nic nat got 115 i think ill risk it:
Danger, ablett, fyfe, gawn, gray

Pete

Danger

Northernsoul74

Risk it by asking people who out of 4 choices you should go for? Living life on be edge. You almost made a decision for yourself.

Budstar

Take Nic Nat's 115 or go Ablett or Fyfe!!

Tophawk

He is 91 now. Hopefully with scaling will end up on around 95. I will have to emergency loophole Millsy's score now. He has done well.

Tophawk

That is borderline for me. Either Fyfe or Danger (If you have him) for me. Just be mindful that showers are forecast for Perth later tomorrow arvo.

Nicholas

Ill go fyfe i think danger might spud it and freo have carlton

Benjamima Puddleduck

good choice!

Budstar

Borderline for me also Tophawk, I'll stick with Fyfe!! More confident with him over Ablett or Dangerfield, don't have Goldy but the C would of been on him, will go massive!!

Hawks

Appreciate your thoughts-

Do I take Mitch McGoverns score of 73?

Would be in place of one of the following players-
Kerridge
BenKen
AMDT

Davonaise

Take it
But if you don't go with tipa

B-T

For those that went from Paps to DBJ, ouch!!

Tophawk

He ended up with 78 SC points. A good effort but that is only 15 points above his break even. He might rise by 5K max. I reckon DBJ will jump by 40K plus. I am quite comfortable with my decision to trade out paps for him. I aint gonna slash my wrists over it!

B-T

A waisted trade for a 100k..

Davonaise

100k is not a wasted trade lol
Sideways trade when a player is underperforming is a wasted trade
Anything can happen in sc always remember this Paps could poo out a 40 next week or get injured ect
But he did ok today 🙂

B-T

A bit tough to upgrade to a premo with 100k..

Davonaise

You do realise you can't paint the fence with every rookie lol
Cashing in 100k and not missing the boat on DBJ is a sound trade seeing as you will net an extra 200k from this one trade
You won't get 300k from Paps

Leeds17

it's 100k plus what DJB will make over the next few weeks, which off his last 2 games looks like another 100k-150k maybe even a little more.

Hoot

I did it and glad I did so. DBj looks the goods. No one will risk Papley on field after his 20's. Same cannot be said for DBJ. His100 was nice. I had the sweats at 1/4 time with Syd but now I'm glad.

hedski

DBJ 103 OUCH

B-T

Have him too mate. Hahaha

Box

Still not a bad call……………………

Matt

Hey guys, which two to put on field out of
– Byrne Jones
– Ben Kennedy
– AMT
It's looking like a tough decision.

Cheers

Mac

AMT and Kennedy IMO

Matt

Thanks mate. I feel they are more proven so should go with them

Paul

Ouch

Phil

Yeah I think easy decision, leave out DBJ

Davonaise

Think I am forced to take Parkers 129 and loop it with Hewetts 70

If I don't choose the safe way then I would probably go Danger captain and play Kennedy over taking Hewetts score.
Don't think the risk is worth the 30-40+ potential this this time.

Every premo mid is having a hard time cracking the 130+ this year

Hawks

Take the 129 x 2
Kennedy will get close to 70

Baggy pants

Papley as sub, just don't need Petracca to wreck the loophole and get a late call up.
Will be watching to see If he runs out for Casey Scorpions tonight.

Derek

Goldy will score 200 today

Tophawk

The way he is going he nail 200 right on the head! At quarter time he is already on 50 SC points.

Derek

51 at quarter time

Davonaise

Usually the 2nd half of sc scoring is very spread
So he is actually more likely to score 160-170
But I he could kick another 3 goals and do the 200

Davonaise

Need a 120+ at half time to crack 200 usually

Liam

Glad i have the vc on him.

Josh

Made the papley trade but my devastation pendant on if he backs that performance up next week or goes back to his last fortnight scores. More annoyed with wasting my vc loophole on pridis and even more worried by how the opposition turned his half time 50 odd to a game total of 80, hopefully this doesn't happen after every time he has a cracking half.

Mills cracked out a 94 and happy to bank that, my new dilemma is to play Kerrige or Ben ken or Amt

Thoughts anyone??

Jock Disciple Si

Play Kerridge in my opinion. He has been steady and looks pretty solid and calm under pressure

Jock Disciple Si

Ablett's leg looks stuffed.
Very glad he is not in my team!

Tophawk

I KNEW IT. Ablett is carrying an injury. It is blatantly obvious now. My decision to start Callan Ward in favour over Gazza at the start of the season looks like being the right call. I bet Jock will be in an "I told you so" mood on next week's podcast.

SCaddict

Not sure he'll be gloating much Tophawk.

In case you didn't know Jock traded in Gaz for Pendles a few weeks ago so it could be a 2 trade whammy for the FoF if Gaz breaks down.

Tophawk

I don't really take pleasure in the fact that god might be carrying an injury. I don't want him to break down for his sake, and I do have him in my fantasy team. It's just tough luck for Jock at this point. He will just have to manage his way through this possible setback. Gazza still seems to be getting the pill at the moment though and he may be able to play his way through it. Time shall tell. Cheers

Kev

Been bloody tough taking his 125 average so far!

Davonaise

yeah agree Kev 125 avg over the likes of starting with Pendles, JPK, Selwood, Priddis has been tough

The Ranger

Even with a bung ankle, bruised shin, crushed ribs and dodgy shoulder he'll still bust out a ton.

Derek

Ablett looks sore. Could be lucky to finish game

Calf strapped
