PatchCoachKingsLogoIt’s the house of our democracy. Inside is a copy of the Magna Carta – the foundation document for our current political system.

Yet the place has blocked SuperCoach on the public WiFi.

Too bloody right. I spent six bloody hours in budget lockup, and when I got out I was suffering serious withdrawals.

It’s been years since I went more than six hours without SuperCoach, and I was feeling it. Flick open the app – nope. Blocked.


Malcolm, I know you’ve been following Jock for years, that you look up to him as a leader of men. You told me so yourself when you called me a few weeks ago asking what to do with Matt Suckling. But you’ve got the power to stop this madness, this suppression of freedom.

The nanny state has gone too far.

But enough of this – let’s dig into what we can control – namely, our teams.



We dodged a bullet this week. Scott Pendlebury, Tom Liberatore, Todd Goldstein, Sam Kerridge and Marcus Adams were all rumoured to be injured or sore – although Adams was a case of confusion between him and his Collingwood counterpart.

Thankfully, all these men have been named to take to the field this week, and we can sigh in relief. There are still rumours they may be late outs – for Goldstein and Kerridge in particular – but I think we’re safe. I hope.

The big news of course is Rory Laird, who has broken his toe and looks to be out for two, likely three weeks. Hold him, but damn that’s annoying.

Late outs from last week Elliot Yeo and Patrick Cripps are slated to return, and Caleb Daniel has been named. Also – finally – we get a gander at Brad Crouch, who has come into the Adelaide outfit at the expense of Higgo’s man from a few weeks ago Jarryd Lyons.

We have a few debutants this week, with Kaidan Brand coming in for the Hawks, Ben Crocker a confirmed starter for the Pies and pre-season wunderkind Darcy MacPherson finally entering the Gold Coast line-up.

On top of this, Tom Ruggles is back to much rugs for those who started him.

On the flipside, Darcy Tucker, Ryan Davis and Sam Grimely have all left their respective sides, and Jacob Weitering will miss with a shoulder injury. He’s gotta go, as his breakeven indicates he’ll lose price when he’s back next week or the week after.

Taylor Adams is still injured, Trent Cotchin has fractured a cheekbone and will miss two weeks and Kane Lambert has badly knocked his ribs up and will miss an extended period.

And of course, Collingwood’s best player and future Brownlow medallist Jesse White is back, giving much needed comedic relief to everyone who doesn’t go for Collingwood. You watch him lose the Pies the game. You just watch.

Oh it’ll be glorious.


She’ll be a short one this week community as I’m running on no sleep. But I’m having a gander at the backline because that’s where my upgrades are this week. I’m bringing in Heath Shaw and Matthew Boyd along the backline, simply because all our alternate plans for the year have fallen through.

The mid-brand of 400k players I put so much faith in has failed. Johanissen was crippled by injury, as was Murphy. Suckling is down, Hurn has given me a Burn, McGovern and Yeo haven’t inspired success, Rich has been inconsistent but the closest we’ve got to a good 400k selection.

The stalwarts of defence from years gone by are getting the job done, and I think we need to prioritise getting these gangly old bastards into our sides in the backline.

Also worth noting Dustin Martin and Michael Barlow are both 500k in the forward line, and I think we’ll need both the pricks by the end of the year and this is the cheapest we’ll get them both for some time.

Yes, that does mean we need to suck up our pride for those of us that traded Barlow out. However, I refuse to feel guilt for that trade. If Fyfe hadn’t gone down, Barlow would still be scoring putrid 50s and 60s in the forward line. I feel no shame for that.

Or at least I keep telling myself that.

Both Trading Places and that captain segment are being given a spell this week as parts of my brain swing between states of general soreness and complete and utter agony.

The captaincy corner is possibly out for good, considering my complete and utter inability to pick a captain who can ton up, which for the record are Goldstein (49), Fyfe (53), Gawn (105), Fyfe (115), Dangerfield (77) and my exception that proves the rule in round one Dangerfield (155).

I’m picking Luke Parker as captain this week – so you’ve all been warned.

And on that bombshell, farewell community. Stick up for each other in the comments – I’ll be back refreshed and revitalised next week – and get on down to a CoachKings venue. We’ve got the damn things coming out of the wazoo now!

Love your work Patch, keep it up mate!

Cameron · 06/05/2016 at 10:39

How many upgrades does everyone have left to make?

    Mike · 06/05/2016 at 14:18

    After next week 5 …hopefully

    Moz · 06/05/2016 at 18:43

    7 after this week

    Luviboy1 · 06/05/2016 at 18:45

    5 if you count Libba and Wells as premos.

    Leeds17 · 06/05/2016 at 18:48

    5 after this round in a perfect world, probably more like 7-8.

    HOLLA · 07/05/2016 at 00:36


Derek · 06/05/2016 at 10:41

Goldy won't be rested…surely. where are these rumors coming from?

    jockreynolds · 06/05/2016 at 10:42

    SEN was rolling with it yesterday mate – they've also bout Daw into the extended lineup. Reckon he's a 23% chance of late out

      Gord29 · 06/05/2016 at 10:46

      I hope so would suit my future trades better him missing one week (non Goldstein owner)

      Steeeve · 06/05/2016 at 14:01

      If he is I'm putting up my first donut of the year with Grimley also missing. Could really have used the 15 points he would have provided as Emergency.

        Jimi · 06/05/2016 at 16:34

        Que the 14 point loss

      Derek · 06/05/2016 at 14:15

      Thanks mate, we don't get any rumours in old Sydney town

        Better Luck Nxt Yr · 06/05/2016 at 14:29

        You can always listen to SEN by jumping on their website and listening live.

Jimmy · 06/05/2016 at 10:50

My last trade on Saturday arvo of Round 1 (during the Essendon game when I realised their BACK rookies weren't so good) was Barlow out for Laird to beef up my backline. Right up until last week I thought it was a genius (with a bit of luck) move, but right now id prefer Barlow……How quickly this game can change.

    Jimmy · 06/05/2016 at 10:51

    Last 'free' trade I should add

hedski · 06/05/2016 at 10:57

Great work patch. If Goldy is a late out I'll be munching on a jam filled bastard not touching Cox!!

Liam · 06/05/2016 at 11:06

Great work patch. Love your work.

Cliffy · 06/05/2016 at 11:15

Currently 23 trades left.

Was looking at 'painting the fence' this week with going 1 upgrade, 1 downgrade in terms of trades:

Dea – J.Smith (via DPP)
Weitering – Simpson

These moves will mean I'll lose my MID/FWD swing since I'll have to move Menadue from my Mids into my Fwds, but it may be ok for one week since Petracca will be on the bubble next week, and hence I could quickly re-establish that MID/FWD swing bringing him in.

Go for it, or re-assess my moves community?

Cheers 🙂

    Liam · 06/05/2016 at 11:30

    Looks good to me.

    ThatDamnRascal · 06/05/2016 at 11:45

    I'd be looking at Tippa(if you have him) as well as Dea if you can. Weitering can sit on the bench for a week and not lose any cash.

      Jonathan Camac · 06/05/2016 at 13:28

      I ike the players you are trading in – looks sharp mate.

    Ratitat · 06/05/2016 at 12:56

    i am doing almost the exact same trading this week, so i say it sounds good

    Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 13:51

    Popular trades, but popular for a reason. Hard to go wrong there unless Smith is dumped next week, but who else you going to downgrade to anyway? Lock it in.

Liam · 06/05/2016 at 11:16

Petracca or Hartley on field ?

    ThatDamnRascal · 06/05/2016 at 11:42

    Hartley might find it tough against the swans talls although he held Hawkins goalless a few weeks back. Narni adds a different element to that backline now. So i'd stick with Petracca on field unless you can do some loophole sorcery and see how Hartley in travelling

      Liam · 06/05/2016 at 11:57

      Can't do any loophole. Petracca it is.
      Cheers Rascal

Jayden · 06/05/2016 at 11:18

bring in joel selwood or luke parker this week?
if things go my way, can probably bring in the other next week

    ThatDamnRascal · 06/05/2016 at 11:40


    JamiesNinjas13 · 06/05/2016 at 11:52

    The ball spills loose, Parrrrker *orgasm*

    Luviboy1 · 06/05/2016 at 12:43

    Parker against Essendon. Will probably tear them a new one.

ThatDamnRascal · 06/05/2016 at 11:39

Totally agree with you on Barlow Patch. If Fyfe was still running through there he'd still be flopping around in the fwd line bleeding cash everywhere. Mundy playing a sweeping half back role now too it would seem.

Onto my dilemma for the week. Do I get Buddy in this week and watch him impale the bombers or add M.Boyd to my backline?


    Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 13:03

    Buddy, Simmo or Docherty.

yer man · 06/05/2016 at 11:41

premo in defence this week who do i look at
i already have heater

    Charlesy · 06/05/2016 at 12:18

    Go with Simpson mate. Always gives you 85-120 and plays 22 games each year. Very reliable

      Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 13:02

      Agreed lock simmo

    Luviboy1 · 06/05/2016 at 12:42

    Consider Boyd as well, also a good option.

    stavros · 06/05/2016 at 12:51

    Courtney Dempsey

      bAps · 06/05/2016 at 17:02


      Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 18:42

      mhm lol

Mister_Spock · 06/05/2016 at 11:47

Great work as always Patch.

Thoughts on potential options for me this week?

Got Laird, Rance and Weitering down back so feeling like Weits has to go…but also have Dea and Menapause that need to be chopped as well.

My thinking there's three options:

1. Weits and Dea out for Cox and Smith (cash generation)
2. Dea and Menapause out for Cox and Smith (minimise cash loss but Weits on field)
3. Weits and Dea out for Smith and Toby Greene (miss out on the big Cox, but get Greene's scoring potential – he's looking top 6-10 FWD at this stage of the year…)


    stavros · 06/05/2016 at 12:57

    similar problem went with Dempsey great js minus be will be there when smith long gone and ruggles low be good cash gen . would have gone toby but already have him so good thoughts there beam me up mr spock aye aye captain

    Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 13:01


    Steve · 06/05/2016 at 16:43

    1 or 3 mate.

    Don't take a donut on Weitering.

    Menadue won't leak (much) cash with a break even of 41. He could even score a sneaky 80 and start moving up towards $300,000 Mitch Brown style.

Geoff · 06/05/2016 at 11:55

Tom Campbell worth jumping onto as a 6th FWD or potentially ruck emergency by season end?

    Phil · 06/05/2016 at 18:24


      Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 18:42


Luviboy1 · 06/05/2016 at 12:35

Matthew Boyd or Kade Simpson. Doing my head in. On one hand the capability of producing large 120 plus scores on the other consistency and reliability. Help community!

    Wattsieesq · 06/05/2016 at 12:56

    Simpson. When JJ and Suckling return later in the year, Boyd's output will drop. Premos are for a season, not just for Christmas : )

      Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 13:01

      Agreed, plus Simpson has the durability of the terminator.

      Luviboy1 · 06/05/2016 at 13:03

      Yeah leaning towards Simpson. Although heavily considering scrapping my plan of Weit and Davis to Simmo and Smith, with rumors circulating that Goldy will be out. May double down and go Smith and Cox instead. Its a harsh game :/

@Matr1x23 · 06/05/2016 at 12:43

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!

    Wattsieesq · 06/05/2016 at 13:08

    Get rid of Weitering. His BE is above his average. Hold the other two. You seem to have reasonable bench cover.

    Luviboy1 · 06/05/2016 at 13:14

    In a similar position mate. Your backline is left very vulnerable this week. I would be inclined to go Weitering straight over to a Simpson/Boyd/Docherty type premo to bolster your defense. You could then drop one of Mcdonald-Tip/Menadue/Davis to J.Smith who is looking to be a very nice cash generating rookie with reasonable JS. Or you could hold off and just go the 1 trade if Smiths JS is too much of a worry for you.

Anth · 06/05/2016 at 12:56

Do I trade Weitering or Tippa to Shaw? I currently have gone Weitering, but he isn't losing cash anytime soon.

Also, Clayton Oliver or Josh Smith on field?

    Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 13:00

    Weits is also not playing, trade him. if you keep him then get hit with more injuries this round you're stuffed

    Mick · 06/05/2016 at 13:37

    Oliver… 10 clearance minimum

min0008 · 06/05/2016 at 13:05

Weitering and dea to Smith and Cox or
Weitering and dea to Smith and Simpson.

    hedski · 06/05/2016 at 13:15


Jonathan Camac · 06/05/2016 at 13:26

Dusty or Barlow? Thoughts community?

    Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 13:49

    If you want Barlow then now is the time to get him at 33 BE.

      Jonathan Camac · 06/05/2016 at 13:52

      Cheers mate, yeah I'm leaning towards him at the moment. Especially with the big names out in Freo.

hedski · 06/05/2016 at 14:07

Anyone who still has Stain Gray in their underpants (team) he won't be playing sunday according to Hinkley him and big Dougal out.

    Derek · 06/05/2016 at 14:17

    I saw Howard won't be playing

    Who will ruck

      Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 14:25

      Guess they think that Dixon and Westoff can go with martin?

      Could have problems against Brisbane I reckon with Rocky, Beams and Zorko around…………………

      hedski · 06/05/2016 at 14:58

      Trengove back with a chopout from dixon/westhoff

Marvin · 06/05/2016 at 14:11

So this may be controversial but I I'm looking to offload Shiel or Cripps this week to bring in Parker. I don't have a warchest saved up and punting dea and tippa leaves me a bit short for a rookie and a gun. Yes shiela and cripps ave around 100 but both haven't gone to the next level like I thought they would when I picked them at the start of the year. I can't see it in happening anytime soon either meaning they are premos but no where near being in the final top 10 mids or warrantted being in my final team. So they have to go eventually.

So dea and Shiela/Cripps out josh smith and Parker in. Probably only lose 30 points playing smith over sheil yet gain 400 with Parker as captain this week on dea-Parker. Then have cash spare for Heath Shaw next week and can focus on bringing in ultra premos selwood, danger, hanners, ward etc al.

Ill admit I got it wrong with Shiel and Cripps.

Thoughts? Comments?

    Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 14:18

    It's a tough call I'd probably get rid of Cripps although he has huge potential, doesn't seem to be living up to it this year and already missed a game so might not be 100%.

    Shiel got 34 touches and scored well last week so hold him for sure.

    Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 14:19

    That saying I'm not sure trading either of these guys is a good idea, but it is for the top player in the league so far…………sometimes gotta break the SC rules I guess.

      Marvin · 06/05/2016 at 17:15

      Thanks for the comments champ. Rules getting broken

    Benjamima Puddleduck · 06/05/2016 at 21:36

    I wouldn't trade either of them. surely you have better trades to make than chasing a handful of points.
    What happens when Cripps and Shiel bang out a 130 ave over the next 5 games while Parker backs off to a 100 for the next 5 games, or gets injured.

    I think both those guys have the capacity to push much further and i think they will.

    Hold on that trade.

    Bowski · 08/05/2016 at 23:46

    I hope you didn't!! Ridiculous trading!!

      Marvin · 09/05/2016 at 07:58

      I sure did. Got rid of cripps but wish I got rid of shiel. Yeah I lost 40 points this weekend but il easily make those back up over the course of the season. Bottom line is cripps and shiel won't be in the top ten mids so need to go sooner rather than later. I stand by my decision

Mike · 06/05/2016 at 14:11

What are people's thoughts on a double down grade this week getting both Smith and Cox in.

    northernsoul74 · 06/05/2016 at 15:48

    Depends on how many trades you have.

    Youngster · 06/05/2016 at 16:13

    Depends on whether you want to double upgrade next week or get in Petracca or others. Trouble with double down grade this week is that you really want to be upgrading the next week. I've chosen to pant the fence and miss out on Smith (need Cox for loophole and ruck coverage) and next week paint the fence again to get Petracca in. Only time will tell if it's the right decision.

Hazey · 06/05/2016 at 14:27

Ablett in doubt? Saw a HS headline on my FB feed….

    Wattsieesq · 06/05/2016 at 16:55

    Had a fitness test this morning away from the main group but then rejoined the group. I think he'll be ok.

    ThatDamnRascal · 06/05/2016 at 16:59

    God hates criticism… expect 130+

    Tommy · 06/05/2016 at 19:15

    He is right and expect him to get 130+ after criticism he has copped this week

tom · 06/05/2016 at 14:28

Tippa and Dea for Smith and Boyd? Leaves me 23 trades?

    Billo · 07/05/2016 at 00:43

    Go for it mate.

C-Train · 06/05/2016 at 14:41

Really stuck guys with these 2 trade options:

Out Weitering & In Barlow or Martin (FWDs) or K. Simpson (BACK)
Out M. Crouch & In Selwood (Mids)

Really interested in anyone’s opinion on what to do with M. Crouch…

    wighty36 · 06/05/2016 at 15:13

    martin I think best value especially with cotchin out

    GoHawks · 06/05/2016 at 15:48

    Weitering to Martin for mine

Nervous Coach · 06/05/2016 at 14:42

Marvelous work Patch. Absolute gold. Look forward to seeing 'future Brownlow medalist' Jesse White do stuff all again for the Pies tomorrow. Would love your (and the Community's thoughts) on which of the following trades I should do this week.

1) Dea to Ruggles and Weitering to Simpson, Boyd or Pittard (as a POD)
2) Weitering or Dea to Ruggles and Zac Smith to S Jacobs
3) Weitering to Z Williams (GWS)

    Wattsieesq · 06/05/2016 at 17:06

    I wouldn't bother bringing Ruggles in. You've missed the boat. I don't think he'll make that much more.

      Nervous Coach · 06/05/2016 at 20:36

      Thanks Wattsieesq. I am concerned about Ruggles JS. I could trade Dea to Smith (Coll) via DPP and Weitering to Simpson/Boyd or Pittard. Thoughts?

        Wattsieesq · 07/05/2016 at 08:35

        I really like those moves

    Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 18:41

    I want what you're on.

Cashcows · 06/05/2016 at 14:43

Dea + AMT – > Ward and J.Smith
24 trades left after ^
Holding Laird, Weitering (for now) and Gray.
Ranked 52XX

Good moves?

Also for those in cash leagues, do you focus on rank at all?

    northernsoul74 · 06/05/2016 at 15:47

    Similar to me. Dea and Davis to J Smith and Callan Ward via some DPP action. Upgrading midfield first then will worry about defence and forward in a few weeks. I know the players I want so will wait for them to be at a decent price

    GoHawks · 06/05/2016 at 15:58

    Like the moves.

    I play a cash league, and still focus on total rank. I figure if I can maximize my score my ranking will be better, and I will have more league wins. I only look at league match-ups during the bye rounds, and in the finals.

Don't Bush Babbie' · 06/05/2016 at 14:54

Considering putting the VC on Dusty tonight , thoughts anyone ?

    wighty36 · 06/05/2016 at 15:14

    I will be I only have him or gibson available for loop hole

    Harley · 06/05/2016 at 15:36

    No way! Can't see him having a big enough game. Even more attention with no cotchin. Possible 120 would be max he would get and I doubt many would settle for 120 for double points on a VC.

    Plus Friday nights this year have been major let downs for VC's.

    Surely the smart move is danger VC and then Parker or hannabery capt! Possibly even Franklin as a POD

    GoHawks · 06/05/2016 at 15:49

    Fair call. Tigers have a good record against the Hawks, if that did continue Martin would need to be a big part of it.

    Harry · 06/05/2016 at 18:37

    Damn I thought I was the only one

Phil · 06/05/2016 at 15:09

Out of the 2 who would be a better play in the back line on the field….AMT or M. Brown?

    GoHawks · 06/05/2016 at 15:54


wighty36 · 06/05/2016 at 15:11

finally made a decision this week dropped from 46th overall to 78th and have some injuries, I really wanted to bring rocky in this week at a bargain price but injuries to laird,weitering stopped that! I'm taking dusty via dpp with adams who I had fwd and trade weits out, to me dusty at 500k has a lot more scoring potential than some of the premo back who will avg between 90-100k for the same price, hoping rocky doesn't go up to much this week and touch wood no injuries he will be my next target!

    Bowski · 08/05/2016 at 23:48

    I hope you didn't! Bloody Rocky, he just cant stay on the park

      Wighty36 · 09/05/2016 at 00:03

      Gday mate,

      Nah thankfully i didn't i tossed it up all week between rocky and martin, the saving grace was the chance to put the vc on martin friday night as this would of been my only loophole option this week due times of games and rookies! Jumped up to 38th so definately made the right call

Coxy · 06/05/2016 at 15:14

Community! Need your help need to upgrade from weitering! Although Simpson is the logical choice for most of you punters, he doesn't suit my bye structure at all, Daniel rich does! Should I bring Simpson in despite it possibly ruining my bye round, or should I get rich so I have N even spread, rich may be a decent POD aswell!

    The Weapon · 06/05/2016 at 17:22

    I've got Rich and its certainly been a bumpy ride so far, I wouldnt worry too much about bye structure so much and just go simpson

Tommy · 06/05/2016 at 15:39

Any chance that Parker could be tagged by Crowley?

    GoHawks · 06/05/2016 at 15:54

    Yes, some chance. Real question is if Crowley can stop Parker, I think the answer is NO.

      Benjamima Puddleduck · 06/05/2016 at 21:37

      Crowley is a has been.
      I actually thought he might be alright this year.

Dave · 06/05/2016 at 15:46

What are thoughts on bringing in Tippett in regards to having ruck cover?

    GoHawks · 06/05/2016 at 15:53

    Expensive ruck cover, rather bring in Cox.

      Dave · 06/05/2016 at 16:45

      But what if cox doesn't play?

Tommo09 · 06/05/2016 at 15:46

Buddy as VC for anyone else???

    GoHawks · 06/05/2016 at 15:52

    like it, dont have him, but if I did vc against Ess makes sense

    Shake n bake · 06/05/2016 at 16:44

    He's my capt if danger spuds it.

Brook · 06/05/2016 at 15:46

I am tossing up between Boyd, Pittard and Docherty for my defensive upgrade. Pittard's numbers stack up pretty well from the first six rounds (25.5 disposals, 2:1 kick to handball ratio and 4 inside 50s per game). He has played some decent opposition too (Adelaide, GWS, Geelong). Just not sure on Docherty (already have Simpson) and surely Boyd will be rested at some stage and role may change when JJ and Suckling come back. Thoughts?

    GoHawks · 06/05/2016 at 15:52

    I think Boyd. JJ will be another 7-8 weeks away from returning, and Sucklings return wont impact Boyd's role that much.

Flaccid Jaff · 06/05/2016 at 15:59

Would love to have 4 trades this week. Need to get shaw and dusty in asap, but should I prioritize smith and cox this week and keays and petracca next week? Have lots of plump cows to cull. Are 4 rookie options like these rare enough that we should take all 4 and not risk getting stuck down the track with no good downgrade options?

TRIGGER HAPPY · 06/05/2016 at 15:59

Thanks Patch. I'm panicking!

What the hell do I do this week?
I am getting shaw in come hell or high water.
Def: Laird, Weita
Mids: Gray, davis, parish and Dunkley

So eat a donut in the mids unless I trade again
A 1. Gray to Shaw via DPP
2. Dea to Smith via DPP
Q. how long is gray out for? Do I trade?

B. 1. Parish to Smith. (made $200k off parish probably still more cash to make? Do I cull early?)
2. Dea to Shaw
Keep Gray in mids.

C.1. Dea to Shaw
2. Weita to Smith
Problem eat a donut in mids for the week.

Do nothing – mmn donuts – don’t get shaw or smith, keep gray loose money on Dea, Weita and laird injured.

Tell you what I am looking to forward to having my whole team on the park one day.
With my luck at the moment could fall into a barrel of nipples and come out sucking my thumb!


Leaning towards B unless someone has any update on Gray?

Thanks lads

    Davo · 06/05/2016 at 17:51

    I have the same 4 mids out and I am doing your option B. Will take the punt that not much money left in Parish and I can deal with Weitering next week as he won't lose money this week. Can't handle the doughnuts & falling too far behind.

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 06/05/2016 at 18:22

      Thanks Davo. Will do the same. So guess we will either b right or wrong together. 🙂

        Davo · 06/05/2016 at 18:36

        I'll b watching

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 06/05/2016 at 18:42

      Next week weita – petrecca, mccarthy – dusty.
      Will keep painting the fence.

Barlow_The_Belt · 06/05/2016 at 16:05

Hey Community one big question for my team who do I down grade to Josh Smith
1. Menadue
2. Davis
3.Ben Kennedy?

    Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 16:26

    Davis as he's not playing, and may not come back anytime soon if Darcy MacPherson performs.

      Barlow_The_Belt · 06/05/2016 at 16:35

      Good point but if he's not playing he won't be losing any cash though so wouldn't it be smarter to get rid of either menadue or Kennedy?

        Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 19:18

        They won't lose cash with their low BE's, plus they have the opportunity to increase their output and profit more, unlike someone not named.

        It makes zero sense to trade out the other two over Davis, he may never come back for all we know.

      I N Pieman · 06/05/2016 at 16:47

      Davis. Menadue lining up in Cotchins spot & BK has some more money to make

        ThatDamnRascal · 06/05/2016 at 16:49

        That is an absolutely great point about Menadue…. the old vortex of opportunity

          I N Pieman · 06/05/2016 at 17:15

          Welcome. Noticed that in the team line ups last night. Immediate arousal curve. If he can't score now he never will

    Thomas · 06/05/2016 at 20:05


Bomber56 · 06/05/2016 at 16:11

Seeing as there are 6 games on Saturday starting at 1-45, 2-10, 4-35, 5-10, 7-40 and 8-10 will the lockout drop off once these games start?

Or because the games overlap each other will the lock stay in place?

Thinking of using the loophole on either the Geelong or Sydney game but need to take the captaincy off Laird if they fail.

    I N Pieman · 06/05/2016 at 16:45

    The lockout takes place at the scheduled starting time of each game. There was an incident recently & a game was delayed. I tried to change my captain despite the fact the game hadn't started & it was locked out. So its based on time

    Crowmagnon · 06/05/2016 at 17:19

    each game locks out when it starts.

      Bomber56 · 06/05/2016 at 18:04

      thanks for the answers guys 🙂

tom · 06/05/2016 at 16:11

I need help in which trade(s) to make. 25 trades remaining and 13k

Shaw, Laird, Simpson,Rich, Adams, Dea, Brown, DBJ
Danger, Ablett, Pendles, Parker, Gray, Libba, Mills, Kerridge, Davis, Menadue, Hewett
Goldstein, Martin, Wyatt
Hall, Barlow, De Goey, Wells, Kennedy, Tippa, McCarthy, Petracca

Thinking of either going Dea to Smith and banking the coin or Dea and Tippa to Smith and Boyd.

David · 06/05/2016 at 16:16

Sam Gray omitted

I N Pieman · 06/05/2016 at 16:25

Right if Goldy gets pulled before the match I'm going to have to point the finger at Big Carl. He's stirred up the gods for that trade last week

    Northernsoul74 · 06/05/2016 at 16:34

    Afl site reporting Daws elevation just a reward for his good form. No mention of Goldy being a doubt.

      I N Pieman · 06/05/2016 at 16:36

      I hope he isn't or ill be munching a donut. Not compromising strategy to bring cox in for coverr

      Hazey · 06/05/2016 at 17:36

      Daw was elevated at the start of the season I think. Hoping Goldy is good to go, and Majak is just back up.

Pinidu · 06/05/2016 at 16:37

Should I play BenKen, Papsmear or McCarthy on field?

Also here are my trades:
Dea –> Simpson
Davis –> J. Smith
25 trades left. 355K in the bank.


    Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 19:14

    Looks fine. I'd play Ben Ken but hey both other guys could score more.

    I could also tell you what topping to have on your next pizza.

    You Silly · 09/05/2016 at 09:58


Nicholas · 06/05/2016 at 16:37

Have 22 trades left and could go weitering to heater and davis to smith. This would leave me with 20 trades and 5-8 players left till full premo depending on wells, wines, libba and b smith performances. Starting to get worried on my low trades and may need to do 1 down 1 up next week to get Martin.

    I N Pieman · 06/05/2016 at 17:21

    Adding 8 premos will probably cost 13-14 trades. Slow down son. Upgrade as much as possible & find value

      Nicholas · 06/05/2016 at 17:57

      Well now is my only chance to get heath shaw in and he fits my bye structure

    Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 18:40

    Do it, Weitering is gone and Davis has been dumped, plus he was useless.

    Boffa · 06/05/2016 at 19:36

    I'd be worried too. Too trigger fingered. What's the hurry?

james · 06/05/2016 at 16:38

after a week of termoil i have finally narrowed down my 1000 trade options down to 3

Weitering + Dea = Shaw + Simpson – this trade makes my DEF stronger with laird benched

Dea + Davis = Simpson/Boyd + Rockliff/Mmurphy – all mids who will avg 100+ for rest of season and parish on bench = handy downgrade option in a couple weeks to gain an easy 250k

Dea + Tipungwuti = Shaw + Dusty or Barlow (traded early in the season) or Buddy – can strengthen Both DEF & FWD by getting The best DEF and a FWD Premo

out of the three option i like number 2 as it means i wont have to play hewett as bench cover for Parish this week and wont have to worry about fielding any rookies and long term the downgrade of parish will be big to get some premos in later

Would love some thoughts Community


DEF- LAIRD, Houli, Adams, WEITERING, Dea, DBJ (Byrne, Ruggles)
MID- Dangerfield, Hannebery, Ward, Zieball, Shiel, Priddis, PARISH (Hewett, Davis, Greasham)
Ruck- Gawn, Nic Nat (Lorensch)
FWD- Hall, Wells, Kerridge, De Goey, Benken, Tipungwuiti (Menadue, Petracca)

    Cashcows · 06/05/2016 at 17:32

    I like 3rd option. Getting good solid proven ins.
    Dont like 1 because Weitering can be held no cash lose.
    Dont like 2 because i wanna give rocky 1 more week before thinking about him and murphy not a fan. Simpson/boyd okay but shaw better.

    Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 18:39

    1 for me.

    Boltons Blues · 06/05/2016 at 19:09

    im to stubborn to trade Barlow back in after trading him out, so 1 or 2 for me haha

    Derek · 06/05/2016 at 19:22

    number 3 stands out to me. get Dusty and Shaw in for dea and Tippa – anyway it could be Weitering instead of tippa?

    Dusty and Shaw are both $60k cheaper with low BE

Dasha · 06/05/2016 at 16:43

Dusty or Boyd in this week?

    johnno2908 · 06/05/2016 at 16:54

    Depends if you have enough cover down back. But Dusty should definitely be top 6 forward this year. As cheap as you will get him. I have gone Dusty anyway

    @t_woof · 06/05/2016 at 17:36

    It's time to get Dustin in.

Mac · 06/05/2016 at 16:46

Chances of Kerridge being a late out?

    Dillon Panthers · 06/05/2016 at 17:01

    Has me worried too Mac. Does everyone think Libba will play? I can see him being a late out too …

    I N Pieman · 06/05/2016 at 17:16

    Late outs are the reason I have kids

      Phil · 06/05/2016 at 17:43

      LOL that was good!

mark · 06/05/2016 at 16:47

Community do we think Stefan Martin would be a good pod captain this week. Playing against no genuine Rickman and overdue for a good score

    David · 06/05/2016 at 16:58

    I reckon Port will be jumping 3rd man up all day….and the ruck man who rucked against Ports non-existent rucks last week has just been dropped…..big risk

    I N Pieman · 06/05/2016 at 17:19

    Sneaky move. I like it. Trengrove isn't a ruck & the other bloke is dead

    Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 19:13

    Plenty of better options but go with your gut, it's what supercoach is about.

Ron · 06/05/2016 at 17:02

Advice on Trades. R. Gray still on bench. 132k left, 25 Trades.
Have made the Dea-Smith Trade. Should I keep Weitering and just do the 1 trade. Or is there something else needed?

Def: Shaw, Rich, Seedsman, Adams, D Byrne-Jones, Tippa, Brown, Dea
Mid: Ablett, Danger, Priddis, SMITH, Hannebury, Libba, Mills, Hewett, R Gray, Davis, Oliver
Ruc: Gawn, Natanui, Grimley
Fwd: D Martin, A Hall, Wells, Menadue, Barlow, McCarthy, Kennedy, Kerridge, Menadue

    Mac · 06/05/2016 at 17:15

    Hold this week. Next week go Kennedy to Petracca and trade Weitering to a premo defender.

      Ron · 06/05/2016 at 17:22

      Midfield looking a bit light on. Could go Davis to someone?

Nick · 06/05/2016 at 17:08

J smith or m cox or both??

    Mac · 06/05/2016 at 17:14


    I N Pieman · 06/05/2016 at 17:17

    Paint the fence. Smith for sure

    @t_woof · 06/05/2016 at 17:39

    Been toying with this same question Nick.

    Like Mac and INP, just Smith.

    I'm leaning Smith and Dustin Martin.

Bobby Singh · 06/05/2016 at 17:15

Hello community, need your help with some dilemma's.

Should I go Laird to Simpson? I've got 200k and 23 trades.
Should I keep Laird and hope that Brown/Ruggles provide decent cover?


    james · 06/05/2016 at 17:26

    Definatly keep laird he will be a top 6 defender

      Bobby Singh · 06/05/2016 at 17:28

      I could pick up Laird around the byes.

        Cashcows · 06/05/2016 at 17:29

        doesnt matter your using 2 trades for it. not worth it

        Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 18:38

        Could be out for two weeks and you're going to use 2 trades?

        A clip over the ear deserved.

    dannyyboyy · 06/05/2016 at 18:40

    take a deep breath, relax, and hold bobby boy.

    Bobby Singh · 06/05/2016 at 18:42

    Cheers boys 😀

Sully321 · 06/05/2016 at 17:34

Who is more of a priority smith or cox?

    Mac · 06/05/2016 at 17:43

    Smith. Read above comments

    Phil · 06/05/2016 at 18:03

    Probably smith?

james · 06/05/2016 at 17:47

who to get in commnity

Dusty Martin, Barlow( who i have traded out early in the season) or Buddy who has been good this year and a chance of going huge this week

    Sully321 · 06/05/2016 at 17:48

    IMO Martin

    Luke · 06/05/2016 at 17:58

    All 3 good options, however I have never been a fan of the key position forward. In saying that, 2016 does like the year of the key forward eg. Waite, JJK, Lynch and Buddy all in the top 10 at the moment, could even chuck Eddie into that group. Always prone to throw up a stinker though.
    If you want consistency I would pick Dusty, who can go large anyway. If you want the rollercoaster go Franklin.

    Harry · 06/05/2016 at 18:48

    Always think long term. Buddy may get 160 this week but you look at averages and Dusty is the best bet to avg the highest at the end of the season. Plus he's hardly missed with injury the last few years

Sully321 · 06/05/2016 at 17:52

Which 3 to start out of Oliver, Kerridge, smith, Hewett, and Ben ken? (At least one of them has to be a fwd)

    Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 18:36

    Kerridge obviously.

    Smith and Ben Ken?

johnno2908 · 06/05/2016 at 18:02

After this weeks trades I have a paltry $600 in the kitty, here's hoping for some good performances from McDT and Kennedy this week to get me McVeigh and Petracca next week. Its going to be tight!

    Phil · 06/05/2016 at 18:20

    That what she said!

Jacko · 06/05/2016 at 18:03

Whats the better value option here, Dea –> Tucker or Kennedy –> J Smith
Honestly rather the second but then I lose my ability to swap players between mid/fwd which would hurt me

    Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 18:35

    Tucker isn't playing this week.

James · 06/05/2016 at 18:04

How do these trades look community?

Weitering > J. Smith
AMT > Martin

    Joel · 06/05/2016 at 18:08

    Great trade, that's the trade I was hoping to do but getting Simpson instead

Ron · 06/05/2016 at 18:19

Advice on Trades. R. Gray still on bench. 132k left, 25 Trades.
Have made the Dea-Smith Trade. Should I keep/trade Weit/Davis? and just do the 1 trade. Or should i go for an upgrade?

Def: Shaw, Rich, Seedsman, Adams, D Byrne-Jones, Tippa, Brown, Dea
Mid: Ablett, Danger, Priddis, SMITH, Hannebury, Libba, Mills, Hewett, R Gray, Davis, Oliver
Ruc: Gawn, Natanui, Grimley
Fwd: D Martin, A Hall, Wells, Menadue, Barlow, McCarthy, Kennedy, Kerridge, Menadue

    Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 18:35

    What's the point of keeping Weitering?

      Ron · 06/05/2016 at 18:55

      Was thinking he wont go down much, he has scored quite well, the 23 was due to an injury. Maybe hold as he might be a keeper.

        Derek · 06/05/2016 at 19:24

        that is pretty good logic. remember Oxley last year. had a second rally and ended up near $450k he can play, and holding him will be a POD, and it will save you a valuable trade. i like it if you can hold him.

        Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 19:27

        Like it but you'd have to keep him for the long haul. If you have Laird then no way, injuries could snowball.

Ben · 06/05/2016 at 18:20

should we be upgrading Ben Kennedy or AMT?

    Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 18:34

    Neither preferably, if you have to then maybe AMT.

Wattsieesq · 06/05/2016 at 18:22

Sam Mitchell is a late out. Panic!

    hedski · 06/05/2016 at 18:34

    Derek · 06/05/2016 at 19:27

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 06/05/2016 at 19:49

      Corkie according to the coach.

      Corked thigh. Should only be a week out

Should i play petracca or tippa on the field.

    Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 18:34

    Yep you should play Petracca or AMT on field.

Ben · 06/05/2016 at 18:27

Should i pick Simpson, Martin or Barlow ?

Josh · 06/05/2016 at 18:28

Keep the simpsons references coming Patch!

TRIGGER HAPPY · 06/05/2016 at 18:38

Sammy mitchell out of tonight's clash!

    Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 19:10

    Those who bought mitchell in chasing points early would be furious with his last scores and now missing one. Was always going to happen though.

    Derek · 06/05/2016 at 19:14

    i heard that Lovells (emergency) parents were seen at the airport, thought it might have been sammy

    Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 19:24

    Bloody early for a rest.

Bobby Singh · 06/05/2016 at 18:47

I've scrapped the Laird to Simpson trade. Should I go:

• BenKen –> Martin?

• Tippa –> Simpson?

• Wait until next week and trade a similar player with a high BE?

    Phil · 06/05/2016 at 18:50

    wait….thats what I'm doing.

      Phil · 06/05/2016 at 18:51

      BenKen might actually put a good score and he still has money to make!

        Leeds17 · 06/05/2016 at 18:53

        I agree but at his price he is perfect to upgrade if you are looking to do one now, i'm going BK to Dusty

Phil · 06/05/2016 at 18:49

I knew it. Menadue would be put on the interchange

    Derek · 06/05/2016 at 19:13

    doesn't matter

Shake n bake · 06/05/2016 at 18:49

Who should I trade out for Docherty? Weitering or AMT?

    Liam · 06/05/2016 at 18:58


    Phil · 06/05/2016 at 19:00


    Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 19:09

    Is this question for real?

    Why would you keep someone who is injured and has a High BE so they will bleed cash when they return?

      Mac · 06/05/2016 at 19:14

      Because he could use him as a loophole option?

        Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 19:23

        But you'd be cutting short a guy on a 64 BE that has tonned up before, what if AMT goes on to be worth 450k+?

        Plus Carlton are playing early saturday anyway.

      Shake n bake · 06/05/2016 at 19:23

      I can always stick him on the bench and get rid of Weits before he comes back into the side. I also think AMT will be just around his breakeven that's why I put up that scenario!! I just wanted to get feedback just incase AMT gets 30 or 40 odd it might be wise to sell him first.

Craig · 06/05/2016 at 18:56

Quick question, if I have Robbie Gray and put him on field will it give me the highest score from my available emergencies?

    Liam · 06/05/2016 at 18:59

    If you have two players on the bench in the mid you will get the lowest score.

      Liam · 06/05/2016 at 18:59

      Two with the E on them ***

    Phil · 06/05/2016 at 19:02

    No it gives you the lowest score…so pick the right one

    Benny · 06/05/2016 at 19:29

    You need to pick an emergency thats on the bench. Hit the E button on one and hope they score better than the others. It doesn't automatically give you the highest score. I'm putting the E on Hewett this week.

    Frank · 06/05/2016 at 19:47

    Put E on first bench player to play, if happy with his score keep as is, if he bombs SUB Gray off and bring on field other option.

Mister_Spock · 06/05/2016 at 19:19

Struth! Panic is setting in big time.

I know it's been asked plenty of times, but can't decided between the double-downgrade – Cox and Smith, or paint the fence – Smith/Cox and Simpson.

Gonna bring in Petracca next week, so leaning towards the painting move. Smith or Cox to bring in community??

    Derek · 06/05/2016 at 19:30

    the reason you are worried, is because neither give you much JS, high risk move for one, crazy risk for both.

    usually when in doubt, HOLD or go Petracca this week.

    I'm probably going to get JSmith, mainly because he is only $102k and even one more week he will make over $100k, i've saved trades and willing to risk one on that trade, as it will let me get Shaw into my team and save me another $60k

Tophawk · 06/05/2016 at 19:20

Got some VC and Captain headaches this week. I have all my key high scorers and rucks all playing early on Saturday. (Parker, Jellwood, Danger, Ward, Shaw, Hall). If I choose any of these guys as my VC, by the time he has played and has gone big, I cannot loophole them with Robbie Gray. That is because all my other midfielders and defenders have played also!! As such, I am probably going to put the VC on Dusty tonight and pray he pulls a big one out of the hat. If he does go big, I have all loophole options available to me. If he puts out an average score, I will have the C on Parker tomorrow in any case. Swans play the bombers so the probability that Parker posts a decent captain score is very high.

Is my logic [email protected]%?


    Nicholas · 06/05/2016 at 19:25

    Danger into parker should be good. Just look at 3 qtr time if danger is doing well if not switch it to parker

      Liam · 06/05/2016 at 19:37

      That's what im doing. There is nearly 2 and a half hours between the two games.

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 06/05/2016 at 19:38

      Hawk that is the way i'm going.
      Danger mouse into Peter Parker.
      Both should go alright based on form will try and look at scores at around 4pm and loop with gray if danger is lightin it up.
      But if not or dont get to do the switch figure parker will b a pretty handy replacement.

        The Ranger · 06/05/2016 at 22:15

        Who's ya rucks?
        I like the look of Gawn this week.

          TRIGGER HAPPY · 06/05/2016 at 23:09

          Gone right of putting the VC on rucks esp gawn.
          VC on gawn twice this year and both times he has scored under 100.
          Sticking with tbe mids so danger as my VC this week.

            The Ranger · 06/05/2016 at 23:35

            The VC/C shenanigans are the one bit of the weekend I don't mind taking a punt on Trigger.
            But then for me the only time I went with Gawn previously he went a hundred and stupidley big!

Mill · 06/05/2016 at 19:28

Absolutely Tophawk. I have also reluctantly VC'ed Dusty Martin and I doubt he will do well against the mighty Hawks, but it is a funny game isn't it. I expect about 100 SC points, but you never know! I will be captaining Hannas. Good luck to you mare.

    Tophawk · 06/05/2016 at 19:32

    Cheers Mill. It's a funny game alright! With Mitchell being a late out it might give him a bit more impact tonight. Who knows. We could be doing cartwheels if he decides to go bang and smashes out a 150+. He is capable of doing it, let's hope its tonight!!

      Derek · 06/05/2016 at 21:06

      Dusty 80 at half time

      Lids 32, will be cheap real soon

        Don't Bush Babbie' · 06/05/2016 at 21:14

        I posted earlier about putting the VC on Dusty,glad I took my advice and not others, 1/2 a game to go though

          Southern S · 06/05/2016 at 23:47

          Similar to what happened with me and Wells vice captain last week, thought it was a stroke of genius but ended up average.

        Derek · 06/05/2016 at 21:52

        Gone quiet, only managed 6 in the third quarter

          Tophawk · 06/05/2016 at 22:15

          Dusty in my team since round 1. Love this guy. Even had the VC on him tonight. (Strategic reasons)

            Derek · 06/05/2016 at 22:51

            115 not bad for a game that the Hawks won easy

              TRIGGER HAPPY · 06/05/2016 at 23:12

              Geez i'm glad he had a quieter second half as is my trade in target next week. Can still probably afford him at 115 pts, but if he cranked a 150 might have put him out of reach.

hedski · 06/05/2016 at 21:12

Went Simpson over Chopstix this week with a view to getting him next week. Looks likely now smashing it.

Paulie Walnuts · 06/05/2016 at 21:21

Glad I hung onto Menadue, has got his BE at 1/2 time. Looped with Dunkley, hope he's not a late in for Libba

    Derek · 06/05/2016 at 21:51

    Menadue had a -3 the third quarter

      The Ranger · 06/05/2016 at 22:07

      Really looking forward to taking Menadue out to the shed…

        Billiox · 06/05/2016 at 22:39

        Loopholed him wont take 52 ish, bye bye as soon as feasible.

        hedski · 06/05/2016 at 22:41

        Sunday night ranger. Bang. Dusty.

          Derek · 06/05/2016 at 22:47

          I honestly didn't see him in the second half

          The Ranger · 06/05/2016 at 22:49

          With a frothy in one hand mate.
          Via the magic of fence painting I'm gonna turn him into a premo!

Tulendeena · 06/05/2016 at 22:38

Glad I brought Houli in!

    Obie · 06/05/2016 at 23:02

    I feel your pain. I too have suffered the same fate. I cannot understand how they are playing him. Did he kick in from the goal square?

    Tommy · 07/05/2016 at 07:31

    I have had him since the start. Hate how so up and down he has been, scored over 120 3 times this season, but every other time, he has gone under 60. He is making me tear my hair out.

Billiox · 06/05/2016 at 22:40

Dusty VC, .. 110 ish just another head ache i guess.

Nicholas · 06/05/2016 at 22:47

I want dusty in next week depends on tippas and ben kens scores

Hoot · 06/05/2016 at 22:57

Bachar Houli…….. He's in space. He's in position. I watch him wave his arms " kick it to me, kick it to me" but NUP… They don't pass to him.

So far as his team mates are concerned, he is clearly no longer the priority receiver when moving the ball through the field.

Trade issues and bad blood within the club?

Form slump and too many TO's from previous rounds?

He will be low 400's soon. Looks to me like ill either have to hold him as a 80-90 avg OR trade him out for a 90-100.

Hmmmm… Rance is looking like the solution to this problem.

    Derek · 06/05/2016 at 23:39

    He needs Tigers playing well and winning

    Hawks · 07/05/2016 at 07:47

    Agreed that Houli is a downhill skier.
    Once Cotch, Delideo, Martin & Rance all in the same team they will find form, and Houli will improve. I'm looking to bring him in after his round 13 bye, hopefully still cheap.

Derek · 06/05/2016 at 23:10

My only chance to do a C loophole is to put Davis on field instead of BenKen but I would then have to take Menadues 54

Menadue had 40 at half time, I was thinking this is good.

    Derek · 06/05/2016 at 23:26

    What am I worry for. I have Laird for C loophole 🙂

    Who on field out of BenKen, Gresham or JSmith?

      Damian Durran · 06/05/2016 at 23:37

      J Smith

Bill · 06/05/2016 at 23:28

Need help community.
Corey Ellis 74, do i take it and loophole him into my playing mids. Would have to take out one of BenKen, Mills or Smith.
Tempted to take the points.

    Derek · 06/05/2016 at 23:37

    be careful loop holing this weekend for late outs. Might be a few late changes this weekend, and if you have been clever and done a loop, you might be stuck with a donut

MaccasMarvels · 07/05/2016 at 01:11

My gut is telling me Dea is one to move this week. Doubt he'll make his break even and they've got North week after. Can't see significant $$$ there. Dea -> Simpson/Docerty I'm thinking. Is anyone else offloading him??

    Noigerbour · 07/05/2016 at 06:05


    Nervous Coach · 07/05/2016 at 06:15

    I will be offloading Dea also, because his BE is very high and he will lose money. My dilemma is whether to use two trades and get rid of weitering at the same time – leaves me with 23 trades.

      Nicholas · 07/05/2016 at 12:58

      Might as well you will be removing him eventually and first to full premo wins!!!

ST 74 · 07/05/2016 at 06:19

Should I trade Dea to Smith via DPP and Weitering to Simpson/Boyd or only the first trade. If I do both it means that I will have either BenKen or Hewett on the field.

    Noigerbour · 07/05/2016 at 06:33


Mac · 07/05/2016 at 07:18

Is Goldstein a good captain choice?

    Luviboy1 · 07/05/2016 at 08:08

    After last weeks performance who knows. Going up against Hickey today who certainly isnt any shake off. Id say tread with caution, but hes looking to bounce back.

Luviboy1 · 07/05/2016 at 07:29

Menaspew with 54 after a 40 point first half. Cant wait to move this spud on. Now, back in McCarthy to beat that against the Coasters or not?

    Hawks · 07/05/2016 at 07:41

    Go with McCarthy, he is in decent form, missed 40% game time last week when he went off with early injury, but came back later. Will score 60-80 points.

Tommo09 · 07/05/2016 at 07:31

Buddy VC
Goldy C

    JDP · 07/05/2016 at 08:46


    Tommy · 07/05/2016 at 13:04

    No ruckmen has scored 100 against Hickey yet this season. Would be an element of risk involved.

Wayno76 · 07/05/2016 at 08:22

Had Sam Mitchell as VC… Looks like I have to rely on Josh Smith to come in as Emergency hope he scores well. Every week it's something just can't win a trick this year

    john · 07/05/2016 at 09:59

    you did a VC loophole!

Don't Bush Babbie' · 07/05/2016 at 08:24

Oliver or Smith on the ground ?

JDP · 07/05/2016 at 08:52

Thoughts please community:
Go the popular pick of Parker or a bit of a POD in Hanneberry or Dahlhaus?

    Luviboy1 · 07/05/2016 at 09:06

    Hanners for a POD. Cant go wrong with the others though.

johnno2908 · 07/05/2016 at 09:16

Any more news on Kerridge? Should I put him on the bench and Kennedy on field… Projected score of 97 somehow.

Tophawk · 07/05/2016 at 09:42

Had the VC on Dusty last night only because of very few other viable VC options this round. Could have run Danger into Parker, but as those matches have a quarter or so overlap, I will be tied up in a restaurant!! LOL I suppose the community would agree that 115 will not "cut it"? The C is on Lukey Parker today. Surely he will run riot against the bombers today. Or should I bank the 230 points to just make sure of it?

    Moz · 07/05/2016 at 10:41

    Nah mate go for Parker. He should SURELY get above 115 against Essendon

    Shake n bake · 07/05/2016 at 11:28

    I'm playing you in one of your leagues, I'm interested in what you are goin to do!

      tophawk · 07/05/2016 at 12:23

      Hahaha. I am always full of surprises. Whats your team's name?

Sully321 · 07/05/2016 at 09:50

VC on danger or Pendles?

    Moz · 07/05/2016 at 10:40


    Derek · 07/05/2016 at 11:39

    wont be surprised to see Carlton use a close tag. But who? Danger or Selwood?

john · 07/05/2016 at 09:58

OK last minute jitters. Painting the fence with Lincoln McCarthy, choices
1 – Ben Ken to Treloar (and 50k left over) / Petracca and upgrade to someone about 550 next week
2 – Ben Ken to Parker (o left) / Petracca and someone like Rocky next week

    Moz · 07/05/2016 at 10:40

    ben Ken to Parker IMO, Parker should go HUGE today against Essendon

Cliffy · 07/05/2016 at 10:04

Community, who to play for D6:

Adams, Hartley or Brown?

And who to play for F6:

AMT or McCarthy?

Luviboy1 · 07/05/2016 at 10:07

Adams and McCarthy

    Derek · 07/05/2016 at 10:18


gator59 · 07/05/2016 at 11:08

BenKen onfield or Papsmear

    Phil · 07/05/2016 at 11:23


      Derek · 07/05/2016 at 11:44

      Phil jokes a lot.

      I've got same question and I think Paps can do alright. Ball should be in forward line a lot and he might sneak a few.

      I can swing BenKen to mid and decide between JSmith, BenKen and Gresham who to play. I was even thinking Smith ahead of BenKen

        gator59 · 07/05/2016 at 12:07

        thanks guys

          gator59 · 07/05/2016 at 12:13

          geez, Derek i have just looked at my leagues and i'm playing you in one of them..

            Phil · 07/05/2016 at 12:32

            Well I wasn't joking? I have Papley BenKen and McCarthy and I'm going with BenKen, but you did make me think about Paps now but I think Franklin will probably be the big target up fwd?

Average Joe · 07/05/2016 at 12:37

Danger VC and Parker C
Buddy VC and one of Goldy, Gaz, Ward, Shaw or Hall

Option one is obviously the safer option but I reckon Buddy will go massive, but if he doesn't then I'm not thrilled by putting the C on any of them

    Kev · 07/05/2016 at 12:43

    Go with the first. Captain choice has been a pain lately, don't muck around with it

hedski · 07/05/2016 at 12:58

White out for blues Jamieson in pies no change.
No changes cats vs eagles.
Who does the community favour for a spot on the ground tonight? Petracca or BenKen?

    Luviboy1 · 07/05/2016 at 13:02

    Ive got BenKen on field. But Im able to loophole Petracca if Smith puts up a stinker today. Hard to split the two. I do think BenKen is due for a good one though.

      hedski · 07/05/2016 at 13:11

      Cheers Luvi currently have BK on.

Eric_the_Red · 07/05/2016 at 13:02

Thoughts on Tippa vs Hartley at D6 this week? Carnage in my back line.

    Kev · 07/05/2016 at 13:23

    Hartley been solid lately. 79 and 81 last two weeks. It is really a flip of the coin with rookies though

Cliffy · 07/05/2016 at 13:36

Hey guys, so remember when I asked the question about which rookies to play at D6 and F6 respectively? I've done some DPP swaps and I'm comfortable with playing Adams, Kerridge and BenKen for F4, F5, and F6.

So the real question is, AMT, Hartley or Brown for D6?

    Average Joe · 07/05/2016 at 13:54

    Well lucky you because that isn't much of a question. AMT all day

Mac · 07/05/2016 at 13:38

Kennedy or McCarthy?

Cameron · 07/05/2016 at 13:56

Anyone else's footy info app not giving them live SuperCoach scores?

    siri · 07/05/2016 at 14:18


    Tommy · 07/05/2016 at 16:48


Fevolution25 · 07/05/2016 at 14:15

SuperCoach scoring system is a joke. Jordan DeGoey 32 SC points only 4 disposals 2 tackles 1 mark and 2 frees against

Nicholas · 07/05/2016 at 14:39

Bartel, danger and selwood all doing great jobs so far
