Every tuesday at 5:30 my ovaries tingle a little bit

tuxCS

Don't all of ours?

HOLLA

Every Tuesday evening…
cold beer, hot pizza( 2 for one Tuesdays)
And a half hour pocast of 24ct fantasy footy gold Welcome!

Derek

i stay in the office until the pod cast is loaded. it is about a 35 min drive home. perfect timing.

tuxCS

Derek mate, what's the name of your team?

scyb

Got inspired and running to the butchers to get some lamb chops for dinner. Welcome!

Vinny

Like this if your keeping laird for the 2-3 weeks.

Superbj

Best title yet jock, it's time to sacrifice some for the greater good

SCaddict

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

Wayno's hot tip is Josh Smith this week for the ultimate kiss of death. Looks like I'm bringing in the American Pie instead. 🙂

Tim

Come on Wayno. Killing us!

Tophawk

I am bringing in the American Magpie as well. He offers a real point of difference.

Josh Smith (with all respect Josh) is just another mid field rookie trying to make it big. There are only so many midfield rookies you can pick. I have Petracca over Smith. Period. If I need to generate more cash later, I can always look at Keays in 2 weeks.

LEKD0G

Jock mate, I think we need to give Narelle the flick…we don't want anything hurting the stability of Coach kings

Phil

I'm thinking of going Hanners to Smith and Shaw to Lee to free up some cash and build the war chest. Thoughts?

JohnP

Great decision get some cash ready for some big upgrades

Vinny

Surely this is a lie.

SC16

good trades and in a couple of weeks trade back to hanners and shaw so then youve completly wasted 4 trades, love the strat

Big d

Lee isn't even playing and trading out Hanners is just wasting a trade
Hanners and Shaw are gunning it why would you trade them out
This won't help you with anything

Tony

LOL

Benjamima Puddleduck

Hook line and sinker

Han

Why get rid of banners

Southern S

Another bite Phil!

HOLLA

And still they bite phil

Phil

lol yup ; )

Derek

he forgot to add that he had 30 trades left

Phil

Oh yeah! I have 30 trades too!

Noigerbour

Lol

smote

Go Hanners to Relton Roberts instead of Smith.

tuxCS

I'm never trusting a Phil ever again.

Phil

Good you shouldn't…..just mucking around mate we all know that would be bloody stupid!

Tommy

Cheeky

I N Pieman

Acres a great call will make a lot of cash now that he has that massive score in his 3 week tally

Steeeve

Weitering to J Smith
Dea to Dusty

Fence painted.

Redd

Bang traded weitering 2 shaw last week looking at ben ken to j smith and dea to boyd or simpson this week

rowdz

thoughts on picking Treloar over Pendlebury and will Treloar be top 10 mid

Derek

nope. won't be top 20 imo.

rowdz

surely scores more than pendles

Southern S

They are pretty close in total score for the season and Pendles was or is playing injured.

Derek

Pendlebury is a proven 125+ scorer for a number of years. he is without a doubt firmly in the top 8 midfielders going around (ask anyone here to list their top 8) even if he is off 5 or 10 points he will still be top 10.

Treloar is a solid 107 scorer. At best he can improve 5 or 10 points, but that won't put him in the top 10, at best it will be around that group like Beams, Wines, Sidebum, SMitchell, Mundy, cotchin, maybe the next 10.

rowdz

good point. so i should still look at getting Pendles in even though he is no longer playing midfield which is affecting his scores or will he return to his best

Rick Grimes

I think we'll see him more in the guts as the season progresses. I'm holding off for now but he'll be in my team post byes I think. Top 10 for mine.

sahil

sloane!!!

FisherDan

Great pod cast as always fellas. Thinking of going Daniel Rich as an upgrade? Thoughts?

Southern S

Large plums required going by Rich's supercoach history of about an 85 average. Not a top defender.

Derek

i started with him, but i wouldn't be think he is a keeper. I'll keep him and hope i have a few trades left to upgrade him at the end, but to trade him in now….not sure. its not like he is a massive POD either.

Mr booby-buyer

Ultimate pod move, Libba to Christensen. Bang!

free kick hawthorn…

Phil

Dont trade libba

Mr booby-buyer

Supercoach gods love PODs!

Dan

Umpires love Hawthorn

Tom

what do we think of Daisy? Im doing shithouse this season and have lost all f***s so im bringing him in hoping he can be a good POD

Southern S

Is that you Phil?

Phil

Nope

@Popey_99

Not even Phil is that stupid 😉

tuxCS

Popey with the calls

Southern S

Arousing!

Phil

I'm dumb not stupid

Scouser

Good luck with it Tom if he can last the season he could prove the doubters wrong, it's still a pretty big if though. Brave call but if your seasons stinking it up you've got to take some risks. Having said that you could probably get Rockliff in and wait on Daisy to see how he goes this week as well but go with your gut and back yourself in.

Shake n bake

Weitering Laird maybe McGovern out Dea will be lucky to keep his spot my def is stuffed!

Tony

Hi guys. What's your thoughts on josh smith's js. Probably ok??

Average Joe

Wouldn't count on it when Adams comes back

Derek

is that who he replaced in the team?

Average Joe

Not necessarily, but the first players to go from the 22 would probably be him, broomhead and then Maynard. Varcoe set to come back soon as well. He might keep his spot this week, with Langdon possibly out, but after that I reckon he is gone. Besides, Goldsack, Marley Williams and Jamie Elliott all hopefully returning within the next few weeks

Tommy

The way he is performing, you just can't drop him.

Toby N

Weitering and Davis out, Boyd and young Joshy Smith in. Thoughts???

John

Wish I could get there Jock. Been looking for a venue closer to home but none in my area just yet. Will keep looking for an opportunity to get amongst it though.

Sean

so just quickly, in your opinion does R Gray have to go?

BestCoastEagles

Will be trading in R.Gray in a few weeks when he drops nicely. Stick to your convictions don't chase last weeks points

Rick Grimes

No, hold him. I fully expect him to come back hard in a couple of weeks. I held Rocky and reaped the benefit (of course he may well blow to bits this weekend). There are not enough trades to chop and change players who are out for a couple of weeks.

Southern S

Great podcast as always fellas!

Was I imagining things when there was talk of trading out Hartley? Sure I heard that mentioned twice.

I'm either going nuts or I'm missing something…….Hartley has a negative -21 BE and set to go up 40k with a score of 70.

Southern S

Ha ha all good love your work!

Tommo09

Community, I need some help,
My defence is stuffed
Have to play M.Brown on the field

Anyway, Fyfe to Hanners
And
Davis to Smith

Good trades community??
After these I will have 23 trades and $331k left
Or should I miss smith and trade Weiters to a premo and M.brown on bench???

Derek

if your defense is stuffed, why wouldn't you be using the fyfe trade to improve your defense. Do you have shaw or dawson?

Tommo09

Heath shaw

The Mountain

I like it. Zac Dawson is the ultimate POD and consistent with his scoring over the years of around 50 haha

GoldRush

That be called the 'Gummy Shark' move!

Scouser

Don't put brown on the field that's a disaster waiting to happen upgrade Weitering. You can afford to miss on Smith a good pick put js a concern when the Pies injury list starts to thin in a couple of weeks.

Tommo09

Also should I go Pendles or Hannebery??
I already have Parker too

BC

Hanners – he is a machine

Scouser

Pendles much better value at the moment and starting to return to form.

Nick

hold laird and play tipa or trade to shaw which i have just enough funds for this week

Rick Grimes

Laird is a top 6 defender and very reliable. Shaw is also that, but you want to be adding premos, not going sideways. Tippa is good for 70+ most days and has a 64 be, so he can stay another week I reckon. Shaw should still be under $600k next week so if you can see a plan to manoeuvre him in then (ie, Petracca in for a fat mid/fwd cow, Tippa up to Shaw), that's the way I'd go.

Scouser

That's a waste of a trade Nick, hold laird and look at how you can upgrade Tpipa

Dasha

how much will dea go down if he scores below 60 odd again

Don't Bush Babbie'

approx 14k

Wighty36

Dropped from 46th overall to 78th and have weitering,laird out this week and hunter still under cloud,
Early thoughts are holding laird trading out kennedy,weitering to smith and dusty via dpp as i had adams in fwds,
This leaves me with shaw,gibson,smith,byrnejones,adams,tippa starting DEF,
Tossed up between a premo def or martin but i think martin at this price is a steal and touch wood no more injuries until laird back then tippa will be turned into either simpson,rance,rich or houli but will have couple more weeks to make that decision

Please give me some thoughts?

Brett

Wighty36 – I have Laird out too, and I am concerned about playing Tippa on my field against Sydney at the SCG this week.

Reckon the Bombers might get belted by over 80 points this week.

Maybe also consider bringing in Boyd this week (instead of Dusty)? Boyd has dropped around $50K, and appears to have really hit his straps in the past few weeks. Obviously, the main issue with him is if he plays most games this year – given his advancing years.

Wighty36

My last DEF spot is between tippa/brown or ruggles if his picked, boyd has come into my thoughts the only thing im hesitant in is i already have dalhaus,hunter,libba,adams not sure i want 5 from the one team he could be a potential upgrade for adams in a few weeks though!

Tommy

The ball will certainly be down his end a lot, good opportunity to score.

The_Black_Mamba

Ryan Davis to Smith, Menadue to Martin with money I have saved up. Still have 70 k. Then downgrade someone to petracca and upgrade parish to uber premium. Thoughts?

Gibbs

Who should I trade weiters to? Have 500 k looking at houli?

Danners

Depends on who you have in your defence, at the moment, I wouldn't be getting Rance in with no one having any idea what his role could be

deman

matty boyd looking a decent option

tuxCS

Feels very strange to hear my own fathers voice on a podcast I so religiously listen to. Great stuff this week fellas!

sc king

ok i have tipawugni, dea, laird and weitering have two trades to give, tipa for smith and then dea to pittard is my thaughts but please help

Southern S

Tippa is fit and has a 64 BE.

Weitering has his shoulder half hanging off and his BE is 114.

You've got large plums bringing Pittard in, he has some big games but never seems to score big for long enough.

Tommo09

Heres my team at the end of round 6
Only at about 2000th overall

Def: Shaw, Laird, Adams, Weitering, Tippa, DBJ (Byrne, Brown)
Mid: Danger Gaz, Parker, Libba, M.Crouch, Kennedy, Petracca (Fyfe, Davis, Gresham)
Ruck: Goldy, NicNat (Grimley)
Fwd: Hall, Martin, Barlow, Buddy, Wells, Kerridge (Papley, Menadue)

I could go Fyfe to Pendles or Hanners and Davis to Gresham
Or
Davis to Smith and Fyfe to Gibson, Docherty or Simpson via DPP
The second one is caused by Laird and Weitering not playing and therefore having to play Brown and Byrne on the field.

Please help community!!!

Southern S

Fyfe to Smith and Weitering to a premo defender?

Tommo09

Cool
Only problem is that my midfield may be a little weak for this week
I can't choose between Gibson, Simpson and Docherty though

Hawks

Simpson

Scouser

Simpson

Squid

Could you trade Ben Kennedy out, push kerridge up trade in Dahlhaus then trade Fyfe for a gun mid with left over money?

Tommo09

Yeah but my defence will have one premo and 5 rookies

Squid

Won't have to change your forward line all year though

Noigerbour

Bang

min0008

Ryan Davis to Smith and Dea to Cox

Thoughts on double downgrading. After trades, I'll have 24 left and will have 420k in the bank.

Southern S

Should work out for you, if you have weitering I'd cull him over Davis.

min0008

I've got Weitering and Laird

Falcon

With thise 2 and dea
Youll want to trade weitering and dea
Up and down
Or if you have some dpp trade out some others
But you need a def player bought in

Brothers FC

Thoughts on Zac Williams?

Southern S

Not going to be a top defender from what I can tell.

Kev

I like him as a pod to Rich. Been very consistent so far and has great efficiency (86%). Just don't expect massive scores from him

SCaddict

I just picked him up this morning from the pool in my Draft league.

Not sure I'd have the stones to bring him in for Classic.

Scott

I like him, ave 88 pretty good for a defender, tricky price at $411. Seems to have been scoring consistently this year. Highly rated in the prospectus. Is he a top 10 defender by the end of the year, who knows. Be a gutsy pick that could pay off.

Loop

If they'd named him in round one he would've been in my team instead of Sheridan. I keeping looking at him but he's probably not going to be a top defender. Love the way he plays.

@Matr1x23

Hey guys,

I'm a little stuffed too and there's only one place to turn to and that's my beloved community. So I've got 23 trades left and $361,600 in the war-chest. What to do next guys?!? It's doing my head in.

Defence: Shaw, LAIRD, Adams, WEITERING, Dea, Byrne-Jones (Hartley, Byrne)

Midfield: Dangerfield, Hannebery, Parker, Cripps, Rockliff, Mills, GRAY (Kennedy, Menadue, Davis)

Rucks: Gawn, Nic Nat

Forwards: Hall, Barlow, Wells, Kerridge, McDonald-Tip, Papley (Brown, Cox)

I think I've got all the right rookies but these injuries are just killing me now. Gray, Weitering, Laird. I don't know what area to focus on. Any help would be appreciated community!

Southern S

Weitering out.

Tippa into backline, menadue/kennedy forward

Trade Smith into midfield position.

Dea > Simpson

Or if you don't like Smith and are wary about his JS then you could try to upgrade both Weitering and Dea with your warchest. Not sure if you can afford two top defenders though.

Scott

I agree, trade out Weitering and Dea, for one premo and a rookie. If you don't like Smith or Cox, consider Keays or Petracca. The advantage of trading in boys on the bubble now is that next week you can cull another cash cow and then bring in Keays or Petracca.

breakevens

Your team is a beautiful thing atm looking really strong
My advice
Sub off Laird for Hartley
Trade Weitering to Simpson/Docherty
If you have enough DPP Dea to Dusty
if you don't have enough DPP Dea to Josh Smith

Damian

Jock, I have Shaw and Houli and they have the same bye round as Simpson, should this effect the selection of Simpson?

Sana

Dusty or Barlow?

tuxCS

Barlow for me. Fyfe out has obviously helped him.

Danners

Tough call, but with Life out, Barlow should be able to score better

Beagz

Dusty.

Barlow will go back to his old role as soon as Neale and Mundy are back in which should be a week or two.

Southern S

Neale and Mundy played last week………………Barlow got a 134………….

tuxCS

I'm in the process of painting the fence fellas.
Weitering to Cox (via AMT swing)
BenKen to Smith
Next week (If these players get near their projected scores it should happen)
Libba to Parker
Kerridge or Mills (depending on breakeven) to Priddis.
Will be holding both R.Gray and R.Laird considering their injuries are only 3 more weeks.

Liam

Like it but think it's a bit too early to be trading put Kerridge,Mills and Libba.

Phil

Agree… Kerridge and libba could be a keepers? Mills a plenty of time. Jumping off the boat way to soon?

tuxCS

It's a decent argument but i've thought about it a lot and it helps me get closer to full premo faster, I pretty much have to get Priddis next week, as he'll be at his lowest for the season, and i would like to get Parker in next week, but i suppose he can wait. I can definitely see that it may be too early but how much more money can they make? Is it worth losing out on possible upgrades just to squeeze out 30k more? Will it benefit me in the long run? Surely everyones goal should be to get to full premo as quick as possible, and thats just what im trying to do now. 🙂

Dean

Priddis is shit this year, forget him. You are crazy to even consider trading Kerridige or Mills as their breakevens are 23 & 33
Look to trade Kennedy & Menadue out next week as they will fattened right up by then.

WATCH LIST
J, Selwood

S, Coniglio
Most of these are midfielders because this is where the points are found

TIPS
While there is lots of players inform at the moment, don’t be to quick to jump on the score bandwagon, or as Jock and Peter would say “Don’t follow the points”. Many people will be quick to jump on some of the rookies that scored and some of the other players who have finally shot into form. Instead sit back and observe their scores. We don’t want to be wasting any trades this week or any other week for that matter. Stick to your premo’s and try and sideways trade less if you can.

This post took a while to make so I would appreciate it if you would show

HOLLA

Show….?

Southern S

Maybe cut out the name of the person who deserves credit for the article? lol

Crowmagnon

nice work.
thanks stewy_chewy.

breakevens

Love ya work Stewy

Brian

good stuff

smote

very helpful and much appreciated.

tom

G'day guys, which rookies need to be culled first in what order? BenKen, Dea, AMT?

tuxCS

Dea, AMT, BenKen

tom

cheers

breakevens

BenKen
Dea
AMT

Southern S

Ben ken who hasn't bled with a 51 BE ahead of Dea?

He has bled 13k, last two scores of 39 and 41, and has a BE of 94.

Interesting approach……….you sense a big game coming from Dea against Sydney?

breakevens

Dea was consistent from the first 4 rounds but his last two games have been poor
Set for a 75 this week
BenKen might be dropped following 44 point loss

Southern S

Ben Ken might be dropped for Trengove soon I guess.

Jonathan Camac

I tend to agree with Southern S and tuxCS. After a bit of thought, I am putting the order at Dea, AMT, BenKen.

Jim

Weitering to Simpson or Dusty? (DPP)

breakevens

Depends on the structure of your backline. If you have Laird go with Simpson, wait a week on Dusty

Danners

Dusty, more likely to produce more points

breakevens

Mills is tracking along very nicely at 335k and a breakeven of 33
His scores seem to be improving week in week out could we potentially see this bloke reach 400k?

Danners

He should be able to

SCaddict

Could get close especially if he can cash in on the Bombers this weekend. He'd probably need to get that average to around 80 to break the $400K mark though.

Dasha

a big score this week and its very likely

breakevens

Best rookies this year

1. Adams
2. Kerridge
3. Weitering
4. Mills
5. Parish
6. AMT
7. Byrne-Jones

Agree with the order??

Tommo09

Yeah I agree
Funny how there is 4 defenders in that considering defenders are thought of as not very high scoring

Southern S

I'd bin Weitering from that list the most he peaked to was about 141k profit.

Mitch brown and Hartley look like topping that. McCarthy has already made 143k now on a BE of 43.

My list would be pretty similar but Weiter and Parish wouldn't make the cut.

Hab

Just because he didn't make as much money as the others doesn't mean he was a star rookie. He's average is 75 with a 23 in there.

He was dependable and he complemented the backline quite nicely without ever being a liability. Something that can't be said for either Brown or Harley.

Southern S

Well I guess the term best rookie is subjective, plus it's early in the season.

Mills is above him for sure, averaging 73.83 and still fit (Weiter ave 73.5 plus cost 20k more)

Southern S

AMT for example is averaging 71.5 and only cost 100k, also is still playing.

Weitering was great until he got a 23 and injured.

Rick Grimes

Yea pretty much. Although B-J could do well over the coming weeks. I've found that my defence is now near premo due to def rookie value. I'm hoping Mills and Kerridge can get up to near $400k to allow midfield upgrades. I still have AMT and B-J to blast against the wall which will help. Menapoo….not so much.

Tommo09

I can't make a decision!!!
Gibson, Simpson or Docherty???

Phil

Thats easy….simpson

Tommo09

Thank you

Don't Bush Babbie'

agree, I'm going the same way

Adrian

Simpson

Jonathan Camac

Simpson – do some research on his consistency over ten years of footy. Flipping plays every game every season, and averages 90+. Absolute gun.

Mitta

Hey community. Nervous about the amount of money that is being made this year with rookies so am wondering whether Cox is a necessity?
My two trade options are:

1: Dea out for H. Shaw. Menadue out for Smith.
Or
2: Dea out for Cox. Menadue out for Smith.

Thanks guy, much appreciated!

Cameron

Definitely option 1, shaw is a must this week as he as cheap as he will be for awhile and no Cox isn't a must

Southern S

Taking cox for cash………sounds rough.

Mac

Is anyone else thinking of maybe holding some rookies longer than we should due to the lack of good rookies to downgrade to? I think people will waste trades on downgrades and will suffer when the rookie they bring in get dropped. We have seen it already with Fyfe, Laird, Gray missing weeks due to injury. I think trades will be very valuable and that is why I will not downgrade to any rookie unless they have very good job security.

Dasha

couldnt have said it better myself

Don't Bush Babbie'

I've had Petracca from day 1 and won't be downgrading to Smith or Cox but I will be upgrading to Parker & Simpson via Dea & Menadue ( 617k on hand ) and holding at this stage Laird & Weitering.

Phil

Thats a nice move!

Phil

Yup! Nothing good other than Petracca next week. He's my target rookie, might bring in smith just because he dirt cheap and will have a huge cash generation and might even stay in side Pies are in a dark area really cant lose and if he sat loophole?

Luviboy1

Favourite time of the week. Brilliant stuff boys. Team is looking pretty stuffed at this point in time with all of Gray, Laird, Wingard and Weitering all planted firmly on the bench. Have 221k and 25 trades. Current team looks like this:

DEF: Shaw, Bartel, Adams, AMT, Brown, DBJ, (Laird, Weitering)
MID: Danger, Ward, Gaz, Pendles, Libba, Mills, Hewett, Petracca, (Gray, Menadue, Davis)
RUCK: Gawn, Goldy, (Wyatt)
FWD: Hall, Wells, Barlow, Kerridge, BenKen, McCarthy, (Wingard, Loersch)

Defense is left looking very weak, so thinking;
AMT to Simpson/Boyd and BenKen to Keays/Smith via Petracca.
Plan on holding all of Wingard, Gray and Laird, as they are short term injuries. Obvious concerns with Smith's JS with so much talent looking to come back into the Pies side. This would leave me with around 200k and 23 trades, so next week I could paint the fence with Weitering and Menadue/Davis. Thoughts community?

Clem

community, what are we all doing with Jacob weitering and Rory laird,
and btw i did post a league code on at the start of the year and our league is ranked 223rd out of 25,502

CJudd3Votes

Laird looks to be one of only a few reliable high scoring backs, trade him out now and by the time you come to go full premo he will probably be in the top 6 defenders then you end up burning a trade to get him back in.
As for Weitering i'd say either trade now or be prepared to hold him for another 4-5 weeks after he returns otherwise you're looking at minimising cash production

Clem

cheers

Danners

Great stuff Jock and crew! Seems like I have hit the injury/MRP curse. Robinson, Rance, R.Gray, Rockliff, JJ, and now Laird and we are only 6 rounds in. Since I already have Rance on the sidelines my trades this week are
Laird to Boyd
Menadue to Simpson (DPP)
With $60k in the bank
Thoughts?

CJudd3Votes

hold laird

tuxCS

A lot of people have Laird mate, and the majority of people will be holding him. It won't hurt you too badly rankings wise, but if you want to do it as a potential shark move, go for it, whats your team name btw Danners?

Danners

So you are advising me to keep Laird and Rance on the sidelines?
Team name: Dann's Giants

tuxCS

It's only for one week. May as well.

jack viney

yeah giants are shit they lost to dees

I guess hawks are shit because they lost to Port twice last year…………..oh wait they won the flag.

Losing to one team does not mean you can't beat another, different matchups? Structures? Ever watched football?

We did beat St.Kilda at the Etihad though…

petracca or mason cox?

Clem

would go with cox this week as his price will rise before petraccas does, but in the long run petracca and keays look nice

CJudd3Votes

Both ideally. I think Petracca is the better prospect however i am always hesitant to bring in a rookie after only one week so timing wise Cox might be a smarter trade
