THE PANIC ROOM – Round 8

Published by Patch on

PatchCoachKingsLogoWell. That was something.

The round eight teams dropped last night, and they let an almighty splash up from the bowl which gave our buttocks a good licking before sliding back down with what remained of our forward lines.

Daniel Wells, Marcus Adams and Lincoln McCarthy are gone, injured. The delicious specimen that is Cyril will miss this week. Shaun Higgins is gone for three months. And oh.. add Bachar Houli to the mix now. Just for fun. He’s out too.

Toby Greene is sore after overexerting himself against Fremantle.

Michael. Bloody. Barlow. Has. Been. Dropped.

Never again will I select a player in a team coached by Ross Lyon. I don’t even have Barlow and I’m pissed.

I can’t imagine how poor Higgo feels.

Peter Higginbotham Supercoach

It’s carnage. CARNAGE.

THE NEWS

I’ve already run through the big ticket items. Michael Barlow has been dropped just two weeks after scoring 135.

Toby Greene has “general soreness” after dutifully returning to butcher duties in Perth and will miss the clash with the Gold Coast.

Shaun Higgins is out for the count and Daniel Wells is going to be missing one or two after he injured his quad against the Saints last week. I reckon if Norf were playing the Hawks he’d had got up, but they’ll be toying with Essendon this week so they’ll be fine without him.

However, North have also selected Majak Daw this week – will Goldy be managed? I’ve heard nothing to suggest that will be the case, I’m just asking the question. I hope the answer to said question is “shut up Patch, you silly bugger”.

Champion rookie swingman Marcus Adams is the same and will miss one or two. I’m moving him on this week, but with a breakeven of 68 he’s still got a little bit of cash to make, so you’d be within reason to keep him.

Lincoln McCarthy is out this week. I’d cut and run on the Prez, his breakeven is off the charts and he won’t be making us sweet, sweet dosh any time soon.

Livewire Cyril Rioli has family matters to attend to this week, and I hope everything ends well for him on that front.

Higgo’s darling pick of the week Courtenay Dempsey has twinged a hamstring, so don’t trade him in for the love of god. Jonathon Simpkin is also on the long term injury list after badly doing his hammy. However, Darcy Parish returns.

Jacob Hopper has been named to make his debut for the Giants. At nearly 200k we’ll give him a miss for the moment, but keep your eyes on the Giants’ top pick from last year. Said to be an absolute jet, despite a lacklustre NAB cup.

And for anyone still hanging onto James Aish, he’s been dropped after Champion Data named him the worst midfielder in the AFL. Head up, Jimmy, you can bounce back mate.

AND in late news, Bachar Houli will miss this week with a wrist injury – at this stage the injury seems indefinite – and Josh P Kenedy from the Swans is out.

It’s crazy, it’s madness, it’s Friday the 13th.

THE TALKING POINT

Is it just me, or does the midfield make very little sense this year? Nat Fyfe was an unmitigated disaster, Gary Ablett and Scott Pendlebury have been completely unlike themselves, Matt Priddis and Robbie Gray have been unable to next steps.

Middling breakout option The Real Deal Dylan Shiel hasn’t been the Real Deal and Ollie Wines and I have had words. Liberatore hasn’t quite hit the mark we expected him to.

Only Dangerfield (god bless his soul), Luke Parker and Callan Ward have repaid the faith. Dan Hannebery and Joel Selwood have stormed from nowhere, but beyond that… it’s been disappointing.

But this gives as an opportunity to snaffle these fallen premos in the midfield for crumbs in coming weeks. Robbie Gray – who isn’t back yet – has a BE of 200, Priddis is at 150. Ablett is stagnating at a cheap price. Look to bring these blokes in over the next few weeks, because we know they are quality.

They will also be cheap, and the name of the game is value for money. I’d back those three blokes to match it with Hannerbery and Selwood all the way home, and they’re much, much cheaper. Keep your eyes firmly locked on them, community!

CAPTAIN McCAPTAINFACE

Look, I’ve had an absolutely shocking experience with captains this year. Awful. Last week was Luke Parker’s 89 against the Dons, the week before was Goldy’s 49.

I had a long, hot shower this week community. I did some thinking.

HOMER HATES SUPERCOACH

I have lost any pretence of authority on the captaincy selection front – so I’m telling you who I’m going so you can avoid then.

Since Dangerfield’s 155 in round one I’ve had underperforming captain after underperforming captain. So I’m looking at Danger VC this week, and Heath Shaw as C, because he can’t be any worse than what I’ve had so far.

So my captaincy advice is to avoid Shaw because I have cursed him. Absolutely VC Dangerfield though. Beyond that, Ablett is due to bounce back against GWS (who he has a massive average against), Pendles looks to have hit form and BIG MAXY GAWN is ON FIRE.

And I’m done! Best of luck community, Supercoach Gods know we’ll need it.

The SC Gods have cursed us coaches like never before this round! May the force be with us all this weekend.

Patch

Oh it's CARNAGE this week mate!

jordanandeddie

What have us mere mortals done to deserve such harsh treatment by the bearded SC Gods of old! I feel as though we may all soon have to lay before them a sacrificial offering to atone for our coaching sins such as picking Michael Bartholomew at years start.

Patch

We spurned Their Son, the Great Bald One, and as many brought him back in they tried to punish us for our hubris. Flagellation time, I feel.

Phil

Patch JPK is out also.

Patch

Cheers mate, I've chucked him in.

Phil

Cheers!

Nickf

Gotta also add JPK to the Carnage that is this round 8..

Patch

Chucked in minutes after the article went up. Keen eye, mate!

Key Motment

Patch and community. Need some advice.

I was going to double downgrade this week (keays and pat) ,but now thinking of upgrading to S. Motlop instead of Keays. I got 600k in the bank, but doubtful as to what rookies are in the pipeline. Should i bank the rookie cash and then upgrade for the next few weeks, or get motlop and hope some more rookies arrive. Cheers

Patch

I'd hold off on Motlop, mate. Two good games – and cushy games against the Suns and a weak-travelling Eagles side – do not a premo make. I'd be looking at Zorko, Martin or Montagna ahead of him, but I feel painting the fence would be a good move.

Key Motment

Thanks Patch. Do you think there's enough rookies coming through to keep downgrading?

Gibbs

Do I trade Marcus Adams or Lincoln McCarthy? Adams will get me more cash but it means I would have to start menadue on the field, where as If I don't trade Adams and Trade McCarthy, I would start Dea?

Patch

I'd prefer to start Dea onfield, but it depends on who you're going to and how much cash they will gain or lose. Who were you thinking of trading to, Gibbsy?

Jeremy

I have 510k to replace Adams with a forward or a mid (backline is set for now). That’s a relatively restrictive price range, but with a team that’s getting awfully close to full-premo, should I trade in Buddy (and pray to god he keeps his current form up) or trade in Zaharakis (and hope he runs out the season as a top 10 mid?)

I feel Zaharakis will maybe score more over the course of the season, but Buddy might be more likely to finish in the top 10 of his position.

After an average first two rounds, I’ve worked my way back up to the cusp of the top 1000, so I guess this is a fairly important decision for my team. Any help would he appreciated! Cheers

Key Motment

I think Franklin is a pretty sure bet. Career best form and def average a 100 from here on in. Should be top 10 in the fwd line like you said.

Patch

I still have doubts about Zaharakis' fantasy footy output. But, if you want to win the thing you need to pull apart from the pack, and Zaha will let you do that more than Buddy. Far riskier move though. I'd go Buddy myself, mind you.

Swans2012

Buddy looks value, will still throw the occasional turd I suspect but hasn't blown a game apart yet which he will also do. Much greater chance of Buddy being top 10 forward than zaha being top 10 mid IMO….

Haychh

Anyone else noted that Petracca is named on the wing for Casey tomorrow??

Cameron

Wtf was relying on him to field 22 players now that stuffs up everything

Forbidden Dount

By the beard of Zeus, No. Surely he is playing in th one's this week!

Kev

Named on an extended bench last night. Watch for the Sunday teams tonight. Dees wouldn't drop him, surely?

SCaddict

Well it is Friday 13th and our teams are already turning into a horror movie this round so maybe 'Tracca is the next to meet his doom!

Nickf

What is this! Next it'll be announced Gablett and Goldie are late outs…

Jeremy

He's 100% playing. All of our extended bench get named for Casey each week, dont fret.

Tommo

Despite having Wells, Greene, Laird, Mckenzie (did have adams until traded him out) I had avoided total carnage and had 22 players playing this week, now this Houli injury has screwed me over and given me the big 0!!!!! Absolutely spewing. Could have been much worse though. Need a big performance for my 21 playing players this week!

Tim

Likewise. I'm at a full team as long as there's no more late outs. Thank god for playing rookies.

Weplan

Don't Bash a Houli!

lachie08

Dahlhaus or Martin for Adams.
and
To field 2 out of the 3, Papley, brown and Keays.

Banksy700

Martin for sure

bUCKET__

You get to choose between rookies this week? You lucky bastard.

Andrew

Rance or Kade or Pittard? Would rather Kade over Docherty if I go the carlton option

Patch

Kade for mine, mate.

Andrew

Cheers 🙂

yellownblack

hey guys,

I've already got kade and deciding between the other 2… surely rance would be next right? or better to pocket the extra $50K odd?

Swans2012

I think this round my bench has reached a new high (or low),
All of laird rocky wells Greene and Barlow warming the pine……
If nothing else this round highlights the importance of having swinging bench players (even bad ones like menapoo), three outs and a non playing loopholer in my forward line, no problem with a bit of swing swing….

Patch

It does indeed, mate!

Marvin

Dusty or buddy?

Patch

Buddy for mine, Marvin. Want to see a form turnaround from Dusty

Marvin

Cheers patch. my thoughts had been along those lines but there seems to be a lot of love for dusty

Tim

Patch. Tossing up Adams to Dahlhaus but like the idea of getting Zach Merrett instead & saving 100k. Thoughts?

Patch

Dahlhaus another level of quality above Merrett, as much as I love him. Go the quality.

Moz

Adams –> Bartel in the Backline
Rockliff –> Ward

Double upgrade this week, good idea?

My midfield bench is – Greene, Wells & R.Gray
Back bench – Laird, Ruggles
Fwd Bench – Barlow & Wyatt

MENADUE HAS TO BE ON MY PLAYING TEAM 🙁

Are these good trades or is there a better option?

Patch

We'll all have Menapoo onfield this week, Moz. I love those trade ins.

I N Pieman

Anyone know how many points ill get for the 2.9 Million on my bench this week?

OldOcker

Not sure nuts but I am sure that you will outscore me on and off the field, Good Luck mate.

bUCKET__

Bad luck mate, even pricier than my 2.7mil bench warmers!

medadsson

Probably more than I'll get from Sheridan all season!

Kev

Reckon Ross bloody Lyon's team selection meetings is like the "you're cut" episode of The Simpsons.

azza

still cant decide whether to go rance or go docherty and pocket 70k?
please help community

azza

already have shaw,laird and kade

Mick

I was thinking the same and for some reason just don't want to go two defenders from the same team. If carton have an absolute stinker which lets face it is likely then both will possibly spud up.
So I went rance even at the higher price

Boltons Blues

if Carlton have a stinker, the ball will be in their defence the whole time = more possible points for Doc/Simpson
In saying that, i had the same problem, already got simpson and didnt want 2 blue boys down there come seasons end, so i went Rance

Patch

I'm on team Docherty – I'm just not a fan of KPD in general. Both likely to average similar numbers but Doch to be more consistent I feel

Concerned

Anyone worried about Rance? Big spat with chocko recently. Wonder if it will affect him at all and how he feels about the club?

Boltons Blues

ive missed most the carnage this week, had Adams and Wells, traded Adams and kept wells.
brought in Rance and Petracca, happy with this week, only if i can get my captain pick right, last 2 weeks ive stuffed it (Gawn 90 odd and Parker 80odd)
Good luck and let the games begin 😀

JJJ

Any suggestions welcomed!!!!!!!

Shaw, Ruggles, Brown, AMT, DBJ, Dea, (LAIRD (inj), ADAMS (inj))
Danger, Joelwood, Gaz, Viney, Shiel, Cripps, Libba, Kennedy (Hewitt, Davis, JSmith)
NicNat, Goldy
Hall, Buddy, TLynch, Zerrett, CDaniel, Kerridge (WELLS, McGovern)

Probably Should Work on my backline this week.

Hate to trade Kennedy with a low B/E but currently thinking;
Kennedy to Petracca……
Adams to Boyd/Rance……..

Patch

Nice mate! Would take Boyd myself

JJJ

Cheers Patch…. Currently have gone Kennedy and Adams to Petracca and Boyd.
Gives me a full starting 22 this week, and my only "weak" players are DBJ, AMT, Dea, Brown, Petracca, Kerrridge

min0008

Mills and McCarthy to Petracca and Selwood or
Mills and Adams to Petracca and Zorko

Kev

Zorko might be handy this week if you need to cover donuts. If you have a full 22 then Jelwood

Patch

Would take Selwood over Zorko…. just.

Tommo09

Weitering to Simspon/Docherty and Mills to Keays

Next week: M.Crouch and Adams/Kerridge/Kennedy to Priddis and Selwood/Pendlebury

Thoughts on who to get this week and next for who???

Kev

One week at a time, Tom. Anything can and will happen as this week has shown. Your trades for this week are good

Tommo09

Simpson or Docherty
May need the $50k for upgrades next week

Shake n bake

Houli out

Kev

Hiscox (who definitely had a brilliant time growing up with a name like that) is in for jpk. Another academy gun.

Hunt in for Houli

james

Tough decision community

Docherty or Pittard

Patch

Docherty for me, mate.

Nathan

Im in the shit
Like most i have some outs that need to be attended too
I have only 4 playing fwds with no swing without trading
Barlow greene wells all fwds
My question is, is ruggles still worth bringing in?
186k -18 B/E and most importantly he's named
I need a fwd rookie or a def as i can swing brown which gives me 22
Or what i dont want to do but is my last option is to trade one of the 3 named
Any input would be great

Patch

Ruggles a last-ditch option, mate. I assume you have Petracca?

Nathan

Yeah i grabbed him on debut
In and i cant bring Anyone more Expensive otherwise i cant get dusty

The Weapon

Should I bring in Ward, Pendlebury or Jelwood????

Powerage

I would go Jelwood personally

Powerage

So is anyone going to trade Houli? Or to early?

tom

Keays or Davis onfield.

Powerage

Davis isn't playing, is he??

tom

Sorry my mistake!

Keays, Smith or Menadue, pick 2.

Powerage

Keays and Smith, Menadue is Sh!$ can't wait till I get rid of him but to much else to worry about this week!

Cashcows

MAJOR CARNAGE!

First time putting my team up here, I am absolutely stuffed this week and not sure what trades are the best.

Shaw, HOULI, ADAMS, Brown, Byrne-Jones, Hartley
LAIRD, WEITERING

Danger, Hanners, Ward, Gaz, Wines, Libba, Mills, J.Smith
GRAY, Davis, Dunkley

Gawn, Goldy
Grimley

Hall, GREENE, BARLOW, Kerridge, BenKen, Petracca
WELLS, Wyatt

24 trades, 26.6k in the bank.

Weitering + Mills – > Simpsons + Keays? Still not fielding enough 🙁

Patch

Those trades solid, mate, but good grief you're in for a rough week.

Tommo09

Simpson or Docherty

May need the extra cash next week for my upgrades
They are above

Billo

Simpson

Mac

Keays or Macpherson?

Patch

Keays for me

HOLLA

Trade kerridge and adams/weitering

Patch

Hold the Kedge, trade the latter two

dean

dusty, zorko or dalhaus

Patch

The Zork, THE ZORK!

Nicholas

Dusty gotta take bargains when they present themselves so you have more cash to get full premo quicker

Mac

What % of teams is Zorko in? Is he a good option or would you bring in Dusty?

Patch

I'd bring in Zorko over Dusty, mate. In 8.7% of sides, but that'll skyrocket this week to about 15% I'd wager

Powerage

Would you trade Houli Patch?

Patch

It's hard to say without knowing how bad his injuries are. If you've escaped carnage I'd hold, at least until we get a better glimpse of what's wrong. If you're desperate this week, flick him.

callum

I'm think i might buck the trend and select Corey Enright in defence as i think he is a better pick than Mcveigh, Pittard, Docherty,Simpson

not only is he a POD 1.7% of teams he is just about as consitent as they get avg 92 this year even with a 57 he has tonned up 3 times this year and scored 89 and 90,

i feel like in a week of carnage he can be a player that pushes me up the ranks

Patch

Bloody keen eye for a POD, Callum. Seasoned campaigner who has done the long campaigns before.

Billo

I was thinking the same. Anyone know why Enright didnt play round 4? Injury or rested?

Declan

Community! This question has been driving me nuts. I cant make up my mind! Im trading mills to either Ward or Parker, but who!!!!. I have only hanneberry from sydney and I have Shaw and Greene from gws. Who would you pick out of ward and parker and most importantly why?

JJJ

Apart from backline and considering the carnage, anyone jealous of my team fielded this week?

Shaw, Boyd, Brown, AMT, DBJ, Dea, (LAIRD (inj), Ruggles)
Danger, Joelwood, Gaz, Viney, Shiel, Cripps, Libba, Petracca (Hewitt, Davis, JSmith)
NicNat, Goldy
Hall, Buddy, TLynch, Zerrett, CDaniel, Kerridge (WELLS, McGovern)

dave

Bring in keays or mcpherson this week community?
Likely going to get smashed by my opponent so going the double downgrade to go the double upgrade next week!

Saundo

Same here mate but I reckon I'll take McPherson and pocket the 15k

Beezneez

I'm going Keays this week and having another look at MacPherson for next week – wanted him in round one but he wasn't named.

farmerwantsafyfe

should we trade adams out this week if hes possibly out for 2 weeks?

Patch

I think so, farmer!

Jack Blucher

I have danger vc and ward C. thoughts community?

Smote

I thought when you slaughter some lambs and offer them up to the gods, you get rewarded, not feel the full force of their fury. Good luck to everyone this weekend.

D-Train

We must have picked the wrong lambs…

Mitch

Have houli, laird and adams out in the backline with no DPPs I can swing back. What should I do?

Dean

Cry

ST 1974

Love your work Patch. Another awesome Simpsons reference. Trying to deal with the carnage as best as possible. Which trade option is the best out of:

Weitering to Simpson/Boyd/Doc and Mills to Petracca (if named) OR

Weitering to Pittard (POD) and Z Smith to S Martin OR

Weitering to Simpson/Boyd and McGovern to Petracca (Would need to do this one tonight)

Thoughts

chris

simpson or docherty (docherty saves 40k)??

Tommo09

I have the same problem
I think I am going for Docherty because of the cash

jim

Should i go mills to gaz and take the 0 for houli or go suckling to pittard or bartel?

Dean

Depends if your playing for league then hold Houli, however if your playing for overall go Suckling to Pittard – I personally wouldn't bother with Bartel, he will be rested quite a bit.

Grahame Lebroy

The SC gods can be a cruel bunch sometimes, and I have a bench loaded with keepers and will be copping 1 doughnut in the backline now with Houli out. Lets keep it positive, its only 1 weekend. My strategy is to pretend the footy isn't on this weekend. My team is set now, I will only be briefly checking in to decide whether or not to take the VC score or not and that's it. SC and its gods can get stuffed this weekend

Shake n bake

Really would like feedback
Mills to Patracca McCarthy to Zorko or
Mills to Ward & McCarthy to Patracca?

Mac

1st one, Zorko top 6 FWD

Dean

Mills to Ward & McCarthy to Patracca much better. Try get your midfield completed first.

Mick

Hey community just have a quick question…

Rance (549k), Bartel(473k) or Simpson (534k)? Which 2 would you go with as il bring one in this week and one next week.
All work well for the week 14 bye which i think is the one giving most teams trouble so just comes down to scoring and price.

Thanks in advance

Dean

In this order: Rance, Simpson, Pittard, Docherty, Bartel.

Forget Bartel.

JDP

Trade Mills or MCCarthy for Keays???

Dean

Mills because McCarthy won't lose you cash as he wont be playing this week. As long as you can start 22 players.

Don

Trade out houli or adams??

Saundo

I'm trading Houli, at least Adams might make us some more money and potentially a keeper till later in the season

Pinidu

Community, I've seen a lot of articles and people recommending Matthew Boyd as an excellent defensive upgrade option but I'm wary about how his scares will be affected when the likes of Suckling and JJ return….do we think he's a legitimate keeper in 2016 or someone who's playing well due to injuries in his side?

Russ

JJ won't be back for 7 weeks and Boyd has always been a premo defender/ midfielder , getting long in the tooth but so are a lot of guys doing well this year.

pickles

hey guys who should i trade in??

Docherty
Rance
Boyd

farmerwantsafyfe

already have shaw, laird and simpson

Russ

Docherty's in good form, averaging 100, well priced, I'd get him if i didn't already have Simpson.

Paul

Thoughts on Sam Mitchell for Mills? I have 575k

Russ

Yeh..or you could save some cash and get Lewis?

Hbrown

Hey community need your help – Bartel or Mcveigh for Adams?

Billo

I went Bartel

Nicholas

Community is it time to paint the fence or double downgrade and get Keays also?
Here is my team:

Backs: Shaw, Laird, Bartel, Rich, Smith, DBJ (Brown, Hartley)
Mids: Danger, Selwood, Parker, Ablett, Gray, Wines, Libba, Mills (B Ken, Menadue, Smith)
Rucks: Gawn, Nic Nat (Cox)
Fowards: Barlow, Hall, Wells, Adams, AMT, Kerridge (Papey, Mccarthy)

My plans were to go
Mills–> Petracca
Adams–> Dusty

Now with the carnage of Barlow, Wells and Robbie Gray not playing if I complete the above trades I will have to field Menadue or Smith.
Looking for some possible trade suggestions or should I stick with the original plan and take a possible crappy score from Smith or Menadue.
Not enough money to go McCarthy Mills to Martin and Petracca so that is a pitty.
Next week thinking of going Mccarthy and maybe Kerridge or Tippa or someone else to Priddis and next weeks bubble boy.
Little to no money before trades and 20 trades remaining before trades.

Mike

Who should i bring in

M.Boyd and Zorko

Or

K.Simpson and Dahlhaus

Alex

Second option

Mitch

Have houli, laird and adams out in the backline with no DPPs I can swing back. What do I do?

Beezneez

Trade out Adams?

Beezneez

Also depends on extent of Houli's injury – I would trade him if you need to for Simpson Boyd or Docherty at only another 30K.

HOLLA

Just so get a gauge of everyones situation. .
Give this a thumbs up if you CAN field 22 this week

Coxy

Anyone considering Selwood for vice captain? I reckon he could fly under the radar as all the attention will be in danger tonight

rossmcrae

yep

Davo

That's my thinking, see how it goes

hedski

Locked and loaded coxy

gator59

Who to put on field, Petracca, Smith or Papley… Pick 2 please

Tom

petracca definetly
Coin toss between the other two

rossmcrae

petracca and paps who against the tiges (hopefully will kick another bag) if heeney doesn't hog

gator59

thanks guys

Tom

Community, need some help
Adams for Bartel or SImpson
Mills for Ward of Coniglio

Lach

Maybe Adams to Zorko vis DPP

Westy

It might be a long shot for those people who have been hammered in Defence, but does any one have a thing for Mullett from the Kangaroos.
Apparently he's all business up front, but parties down back.

Declan

Noone saw my post earlier, im still torn. I cant decide!!! Ward or parker and why!!!!

rossmcrae

Ward…playing the Suns who are giving up points left and right…

Declan

What about long term ross? Who will have a higher average from now on

Hazey

I reckon they'll both be top10 at seasons end. I'm desperate to Ward in asap

Tim

Agree with this. You'll want both in your team most likely so I don't think it matters a big deal which one you get now.

rossmcrae

You'd probably want both in the end, Parker has a higher ceiling, will cost you 20k more.
Ward has the last bye in Round 15, so you won't need to carry him as much.
On paper Parker definitely better.

Average of past 3 games vs upcoming teams into byes:
Parker – Tigers 121 – Hawks 102 – North 102 (130 last) – GC 120 – GWS 102 (74 last) – Dees 108 (109 avg 6 games)
Ward – GC 126 – Doggies 61 (?) – Crows 98 – Cats 101 – Swans 103 – Dons 103 – Blues 96 (98avg 7 game)

So what fits you bye rounds, who will go big, who gets the Jacobs tag, can Ward get over his past team issues, will the extra points help you through round 12?

Warwick Capper

Mitch brown or Josh Smith

Patch

Onfield? Gut says Brown might have to play back this week. Smith.

Hazey

I'm torn between Adams out for McVeigh or Doherty (or anyone upto $515k)… or just saving the trade as I have scraped together a starting 22

Thoughts from the gurus?

Patch

The faster you're at full premo the better, Hazey. I'd go to Docherty

tom

After making 2 trades this week, is still having 22 around par?

Patch

22 is doing alright, Tom! More than I've got!

Adsy

What two out of:

Adams, Houli (backline)
Mills, R.Davis (mids)
M.McGovern, Menadue or McCarthy (forwards) should go this week?

I've got 200k in the bank and will probably bring Petracca into the midfield at this stage. Cheers all!

Patch

Mills and Adams mate.

Adsy

Mills – Petracca
Houli or Adams – Any top def apart from Shaw, Simpson, Laird?

anthonyc12

Mills and Adams to Bartel and Docherty… only way I could've avoided a dougnut!

johnno2908

Nothing wrong with that!

James

Rance or Bartel??

tom

Rance

Andy

I noticed this week that you can no longer check the full squads of other teams through the leagues tab.

Instead of viewing all 30 players from last round in position order which was useful it now only displays their onfield 22 sorted by price by default.

Seems a change for the worse if you ask me.

johnno2908

There was a website that you could track the trades people had made, see how much money they had in the kitty etc. Im guessing this is the reason they changed. It was called sctradecounter

Russ

I agree Andy, wtf?…we've paid for it and they're taking stuff away from us…not cool.

Billiox

Yes that is reason.

@an3vilmonk3y

Keeping with this week's theme…plz HALP!

Backs: Shaw,Simpson,AMT,Brown,DBJ,Adams / Weitering,Laird
Mid: Danger,Parker,Hall,Pendles,Libers,Priddis,Sidebut,Mills / Hewett,Davis,Colledge
Ruck: Gawn,Nat / Grimley
Forward: Merrett,Martin,Wells,Greene,Kerridge,Cox / McGovern,McCarthy

Thinking I need Petracca for the cash, and need to dump a back so I won't have a doughnut playing which means I'm looking at…

Weitering > Bartel
Mills > Pertacca
Wells swap w/ Hall

Thoughts on back ? have the cash for Boyd, but Bartel suits the bye better and leaves me cash for next week's upgrades. Any other DPP trade I could do that I'm missing?

Patch

I like it mate. Could trade Zorko in if you were keen, too

johnno2908

Torn as to the right move to make this week… PLEASE HELP
Option 1: Mills and Wyatt to Petracca and Keayes.
Option 2: Adams and Mills to Docherty and Petracca.
Option 3: 1 trade only and go Mills to Petracca, put Petracca forward and Smith on ground.
Option 4: Community Choice.

Current Team:
DEF: Shaw, Rich, DBJ, AMT, Ruggles, Brown (LAIRD ADAMS)
MID: Danger, Parker, Gablett, Pendles, Sloane, Priddis, Libba, Mills (GREENE, Smith, Dunkley)
RUCK: Gawn, Nicnat (WYATT)
FWD: Martin, Hall, Kerridge, Kennedy, Menadue, GRIMLEY (WELLS BARLOW)

Liam

Houli, JPK, Laird, Greene, Barlow, Wells, Adams all on my bench….

I'm done

This page is always entertaining and informative you do a great job Patch. However to the rest of the community take off your skirts and put some pants on you bunch of squealing sheilas. A few injured and dropped players is nothing new it happens a few times every year and it only hurts when it happens in round 22.
Coaches who finish a season with high rankings do so because they manage their lists to accommodate the expected 'unforeseen circumstances'. The season is only 7 rounds old so if you're going to suffer a donut this week you probably should thank the SC gods for teaching you such an emphatic lesson that will forever improve your game.

No late changes for cats / crows tonight (go cats).
First world problems community I can field 22 this week (yay) I have to choose :
A. Who to play on field in my fwds out of Tippa and Brown? The other will be on def bench and I'll be loopholing The Rug tonight so they'll be backup if he scores shit.
B. I am lucky enough that I don't have to play that raging dyke from Richmond (MEN R POO) on field but I'm not sure if I should have him as emergency in fwds or mids?

I'm leaning towards playing Tippa fwd and the dyke mid emergency as there's more players to cover.
Any thoughts appreciated good luck for whats shaping as an awesomely crappy weekend of sc.
Cheers.

Hi community,
I've managed to field 22 players this week so I don't need to worry about any doughnuts on the field. I have a couple options however. Do I:
1) double down and go weitering and mills to Petracca and keays this leaves me with 500k for next week
2) paint the fence and trade weitering and mills out to Petracca and a mid premo under 630k
if I go with option 2 who should I look to bring in? A top mid in form like hanners, jelwood or ward, do I bring in a Cheaper mid like Sloane or even priddis a week or two early, or do I look at upgrading to a mid-fwd Dpp like Montagna,
Dahlhaus, Zorko or dusty Martin?
3) would be upgrading to either docherty or Bartel and bringing in Petracca while trading out weitering and mills

Your thought would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

hedski

I like option 2 Sully and I'd bang in Jelwood and put the vc on him tonight.

Brett

Mills to Keays and Mcgovern to Zorko OR Adams to Brand and Mills to Zorko, Option 2 gives me Defence cover. HELP

Brett

Please any ideas

Cpt Pugwash

Keep Adams if you can!! Cost you nothing this week to do so.

99% of SC'ers will do a Mills trade this week.

Look at your structure and plan, especially your bye trading plan and start to get your war chest ready.

Some great Premos coming… Keep an eye on Beams at Brisbane for a POD if he keeps his scores up.

I watched Rockcliff doing laps and sprints this morning during my kids Auskick – he will be back shortly and Beams will get of the chain regularly (and he kicks goals).

Iamme

I've gone the double upgrade this week, Mills and R.Davis for Pendals and Ward…still got a full team to field this week, thank god!

Nicholas

No one saw my post from earlier anyone got any advice

Iamme

Mills–> Petracca
Adams–> Dusty = sounds like a good plan to me

Iamme

You might get crappy scores or you may not…its just a chance you sometimes have to take….better than doughnuts.

Ben

Darcy Parish, Christian Petracca or Ben Kennedy on field?

Phil

Hmmm that's tough call

Tophawk

I have decided to keep Callum Mills for another week. He has avoided the chop. But only just. And that is for two reasons.
1- He is playing this week. With all the outs this round, Mills is required to protect me from donut(s).
2- JPK is out. As such, despite the fact he will still probably loose me some cash with a BE of 94, his output might be reasonable with JPK missing. I am hoping to get 80+ out him against the tigers.

I reckon the choice of VC this round is absolutely vital in getting your score off to a flyer this round. As such, I am still pondering between Danger and Selwood. I reckon both should score well tonight, so putting the VC on either should be a sound move. I am greedy…….Something tells me Selwood could be the man tonight. I have 45 minutes left to decide. What are you guys going tonight?

Cheers

graeme

danger 150+ tonight could even be the first to 200 this year. will show everyone in adelaide what they are missing

Tophawk

I would not be bloody surprised mate. The thing with Danger is that he can go missing for periods during matches. Not saying that will be the case tonight, but Jelwood has been so solid the last 3 rounds. He seems to want to prove (and is) to everybody that Danger does not walk into Geelong and be crowned top cat from day 1.

The other thing is that Danger will cop huge physical attention from the crows tonight. No doubt about it. It could leave Jelwood to pop up and cause the damage as the crows are in danger focus mode. Its gonna be interesting alright.

I still havent bloody decided!!

Hazey

I've gone with Selwood wearing the VC

hedski

Vc Jelwood. Have him danger and smith playing tonight with the rug loopholing in def.
Traded mills/mccarthy to keays/dusty.

Dee

I like your thinking…. convinced me to cut McCarthy this week anyways.

Shake n bake

Thinking about that to tophawk but I went Selwood. Danger might go huge but don't know if this occasion will get to him just a tad.

hedski

Playing you in the mcmemes league shaker I'm out for revenge from the wooping u gave me in another league a few weeks ago!!
Good luck

Shake n bake

Haha should be good!! Good luck buddy! Let me hope I can make it 2 from 2!!

Leeds17

If you keep Mills for this week best to keep him for 3-4 games get him making money again.

graeme

how long Houli out?

Dee

only one week I hope…

Phil

They said could be longer than a week?

Dee

serious?

Phil

Yeh look on afl.com

Phil

But if I had him I wouldnt trade him he's going to bounce back

Eddie

cox or menadue to play in fwd line?

Phil

Cox=Brisbane Menapoo= Sydney

COX

Dee

Docherty or Simpson real quick lads….. can't decide!

Iamme

Simpson because he is a seasoned veteran.

breakevens

Simpson for me but can't go wrong with Docherty

james

i've got danger, ward, zieball, ablett who do i chuck the vc on

hedski

Danger by a mile

Phil

Danger

Dee

Danger 100%

James

Gone with McCarthy > Petracca

Not sure if I should get Boyd or Docherty for Adams? Thoughts?

TRIGGER HAPPY

Now with JPK, and houli out, don't worry bound to be more late outs this weekend just has that feel we almost have to treat this weekend like a 4th bye weekend as i doubt anyone will be able to field a full strength team with most teams patched together with a mismatch of rookies.

So buckle up grin and bear it as we r in for one helluva rough ride but at least as with a poker game we r all in.

Phil

yeh Goldy could be a late out?

Tophawk

I think my wife will think that I am am suffering from "bi-polar" disorder this weekend. LOL It is going to be a serious emotional rollercoaster ride. But thats Supercoach. Good luck!

TyS

I feel really tempted to give Wells the chop but I won't….

Phil

Dont not yet!

Tophawk

Good

jake

Hi community, faced with a trade dilemma this week.

Ranked 3304, 23 trades left and $181,000 in the warchest.

I'm in quite a unique position, where I've actually started both Keays and Petracca in my team R1.

I've got Mills in the midfield, so that's one trade i'd certainly like to make this week.
Laird and Weitering currently fill up defensive bench positions are taken

HOWEVER, my forward line consists of Wells, Greene, Adams and Barlow. I must trade a non playing player this week in order to field a team. Having started so well, I want to keep it going and am willing to burn two trades. I'm contemplating a sideways trade, either a Barlow or Greene along with a Mills, would net me just over a 1m, making it possible to get a duo such a Martin & McVeigh, or even go early on Priddis at home against St Kilda, even with a 150 be.

Really need help with this one guys, appreciate any feedback.

Foti186

I'm sorry to say but you just have to take the hit.

jake

You wouldn't trade a Greene or Barlow this week?

jake

Or even Adams or Weitering, much better than a doughnut surely?

HOLLA

Barlow to motlop

Greg

Danger or Selwood vc, also ruggles or hartley on field?

Boltons Blues

Ive been doing supercoach for awhile now (probably 4/5 years) and ive made some absolute howlers including, trading Cripps after R1 last year because he missed the game against Westcoast in R2, Starting jack watts 3 years ago when everyone thought it was his year, starting the prince last year.

but i have to say, starting B Crouch this year, would have to be the worst decision ive ever made

FavalinkoUBeauty

Yep i feel your pain, cant even average more than a rookie.

Blueth

its gonna feel all wrong but hold. He's a super talent who didn't have a PS and has been injured since. Hasn't made any money and will come good. Stick with him

Blueth

count yourself lucky you don't have brodie smith, that guys real piece of work

hedski

Brodie Smith 15 points to half time is a FFFING DISGRACE. PICK IT UP….

hedski

Seriously Brodie. 2 more points? 2? FFS

Average Joe

Oh man, I got him and B Crouch. 9 possessions for crouch, with 5 of them being clangers

hedski

Ouch

Nicholas

Brodie… I had him loopholed prepared for something like this ready to take Hartleys score instead. It was then I realised Laird was my loophole and I had screwed up big time LOL
