Solid start at 297/3 with Dangerfield, Bartel and Selwood and will take Dangerfield's 132 as captain.

Swindler

Danger C (132 x2) and Z Smith finally stopped being a stain with 119. Smith finally making money to trade to goldstein at the byes. arousal curve rising

Chill

Oh Brodie Smith… Why???.. WHHHYYYY?

Leeds17

Hasnt been the same since Milburn left

bUCKET__

Hold, most defenders are fickle. And at worst you've got a D7 who can swing between midfield and defense. Bloke can't handle any attention, but he'll pick up when Laird is back in.

I'm looking forward to bringing him in as a downgrade on one of my def rookies.

The GOAT

Had Sloane VC. Pretty happy with his 141×2. But it's a shame that Bachar ''Never Again'' Houli will cost me a donut this round.

I N Pieman

Sloane Danger & Selwood last night. VC on Selwood. Grrrrr. Excuse me I need to go change the nappies of my FWD line before the kids step out today

Mister_Spock

Same here…who are you putting the C on? I can't decide between Parker and Pendles…

@ShayneCreek

Thinking of rolling the dice on the C and whacking it on the Big Gawny and dismissing Dangers 132 as VC. He couldn't do worse surely against young Tom Campbell??

Leeds17

Not sure a ruck has hit 100 against Bullies yet???

JB_Tank

Spot on. Goldy got 49. Jacobs last week stunk it out. Martin the same the week before.

Beezneez

Take anything over a 130. Last week had Danger as VC but went for Parker as C – cost me about 80 points. I'm not doing the same this week although I think Parker may go big. Not worth the risk.

Shags

Same here never again.

creeky23

Very valid point Lads. Last 3 games against bully's : Martin 69, Goldy 49, Sauce 78. All respected rucks

Josh

Did you take it or roll the dice on gawn?

Ryan

Had the VC on Selwood, obviously not going to take his score.

Who to put the C on this week? Shaw or Gawn?

Ryan

Or Goldy? Didn't he get his 200 last year against Essendon?

Leeds17

Don't happen to have Tom Mitchell do you?

Ryan

I do – put the C on him?

Leeds17

Full disclosure, I'm taking Dangerfields score, but if i wasn't Mitchell is who I'd have the C on, it's a risk, but no JPK & no Mcglynn means he should attending 2x-3x as many centre bounces as he has in the last month and he loves going big against marginal teams,

Ryan

Shark move, you've convinced me!

Leeds17

Jesus sorry mate!

hedski

Ha ha negative captain there for a while

Mister_Spock

Hmmm….deciding between Pendles and Parker – maybe Parker based on your thinking?

firebomber

After Captain disasters of the last couple of weeks I think I will take Dangerfield's 132 [VC] and be grateful. At least nearly all of the Essendon cows are playing. Just need a few good scores Brown, Walla, Dea, Hartley,

Kev

Taking the 132 after some disastrous vc/c choices last few weeks. Had Gov also who I thought played better than his 68

Southern S

You should take 132 regardless of previous disasters. maybe you were doing bad picks previously due to being greedy?

Most take 130+. Personally I take 120+

Swindler

is Priddis worth getting in soon. will be under 500K next week. His 3 end avg is 79 however. Smells a bit. Is he injured or just butchering it?
Magically those mid/fwd rookies become a less than $200K upgrade to a brownlow medalist…. am i crazy or a genius?

The Ranger

Had a great start with Danger, Sloane and Bartel…it all goes down hill from here!

smart as s

they say its easy to run down hill, tell that to mcntosh lol

Crowbars

Throw in my 95 for Duncan and I'm smiling. Top 200 currently. Bring it on

Vinnymac

I've got VC on Danger too! But can Parker go rampant without JPK against the Tigers? Gawn? Shaw? Ablett?!

@EMBllD

Got VC on Sloane, you bloody ripper.

Crowbars

Me too. Banga

Tophawk

That Brad Crouch is another guy that needs to lift his game. I have him, but luckily I started him on the bench with the E on him as he played first. Just as well, because he can stay there this week with that spud score of 46.

I still have some patience/faith left in him as he is still finding his feet after his long term injury and missing for 4 after round two. But he has now played two consecutive games for scores of 51 and 46. Patience is something I dont have a lot of. I reckon I will give him 2 more games. If he does not produce at least an 80+ score in the next couple of weeks he will be chucked on the scrapheap. Welcome.

Tommo

I know i asked in the last thread, but who should i put the C on? Goldy, Pendles or Ward?

Tommo

Cheers Jock!! Really appreciate it.

@Matt_Parrott

Just had Danger(VC) last night with Ruggles and Milera on the Bench with the (E) just in case they went large…..i was not surprised they didn't. Biggest decision now is who to put the C on? Currently on Gawn but with JPK out, I may go with Parker or Hanna's.

Gawn has a tendency for a quietish game (around 100pts) after each big game this year….might just roll the dice and hope he can go big 2 weeks in a row…see i have changed my mind within 1 paragraph…..arrrgggghhhh!!!

Tommo

Surely you would take Danger's 132. If you be greedy, its more than likely going to stuff ya

@Matt_Parrott

yeah you are probably right…. just trying to figure out how to do it…Only way I can at the moment is put R Gray on the field for Petraca and hope Macpherson can do the same as last week. Always hesitant about the 2nd games of the rookies though, vast majority slide away….

hedski

Vc'd Jelwood (d'oh) had Danger and POO STAIN Smith. Looped the Rug but I think I'll back Brown to beat his score.
Some one in adelaide give that dhead a kick in the nuts for me please.

hedski

Captain Goldy if he plays by the way

Redgumwon

Do I keep Menapoo on the ground or take McGovern's 68? I'm then my next move might be to move Brown back to the forward line. Then move Adams down back and trade him for Boyd?

Captain I can take Dangers VC score of 132 x 2 or do I take the punt and go for glory with big Maxie Gawn as captain?

@Matt_Parrott

I would take the 68 given Menadue will probably go much lower

hedski

I'd take the 68 red the poo will struggle imo.
Take danger mate.

LionGliffen

take Danger's score. Greed kills you in this game

and take McGovern's as well

the boyd trade is your own call

Redgumwon

Thanks guys I'm thinking I'll get Menapoo off the ground and take the sub. Also go with Danger as captain. Good advice guys thank you

Wayno76

Started the season with Bartel, Ive been happy with his games so far hope he can keep it up.. Go Jimmy, had the VC on Dangerfield and will be taking his 2×132 . with him and jimmy makes a good start 2 players 360 points yeehaa

hedski

Goldy playing no late changes. Chucking the C on him now.

Phil

Not sure if anyone noticed but Goldy on the Interchange, not sure if that matters or not?

One Touch

He will rest next week. The 4 games following are tough.

hedski

Sheridan out for freo mzungu in.
Cheers

BundyBear

Parker or Goldy for captain ? dont have danger or gawn. Had vc on Selwood but he spudded up big time

Kev

Parker. Was poor last week and will bounce back strong without jpk against a rubbish tigers midfield

abominable2511

Serious complication. Have the VC on Danger but need advice from the community on the rules regarding loophole for a double emergency scenario. Ready to put the C on Wells and Petracca on the bench, But stupidly had the E on Lyons last night as bench cover.

So, my question is: since Lyons did not play, can I assume that Petracca's score will still count? (and not Lyon – as he didn't play)

Thanks for any accurate advice.

Abel

Non player emergency does not count. Petracca's score will come in if emergency on both.

abominable2511

excellent, happy with 132

Jochem

Which two of M.Brown, Tippa and Hartley starting and who to bench as emergency? Who will score least? Thanks

johnno2908

Adams to gibson or docherty

Redgumwon

Gibson . Do you have Boyd or Mc Veigh?

johnno2908

I have Shaw rich and laird. Im not going boyd, and I will bring in McVeigh next week

Redgumwon

Cool then I hope you went Gibson. I like Boyd and think he will be a top 6 defender. I'll be getting him this week. I've got Shaw, Laird, Bartel, & McVeigh. Boyd will make a fixed 5 premium defenders for me so far

johnno2908

Unfortunately had to attend to non supercoach matters and Didn't do it. McVeigh or Docherty are the choices now

Redgumwon

McVeigh I'd say go for

johnno2908

Went McVeigh… Oh well

bUCKET__

Think with all of the outs, some rookie scores on field will be a big POD this round. Other than our stock-standard essendon rookies / Petracca etc that most will be fielding ofc.

I'm relying on Lleyton Hewett and Corey Ellis to pump out one of their good games.

What horrible unique rookies have everyone else been forced to field? Hopefully few were stuck with Menadue

Scott

Need to make up points due to Brodie Smith. Both my opponent and I had VC on Danger. Have relitevly same teams but thinking chucking C on Ablett (avg 151 against GWS), Goldy (220 last year) or Gawn(anything is possible).

casino12014

Play M Cox this week or put Menadue on the field?

Steeeve

Never put Menadue on the field.

50_Shades

I agree with Steeeeeve. I think that is actually one of the SC rules (see SC rule book, rule no. 783, subsection 2.3)

Scott

Need to make up points due to Brodie Smith. Both my opponent and I had VC on Danger. Have relitevly same teams but thinking chucking C on Ablett (avg 151 against GWS), Goldy (220 last year) or Gawn(anything is possible).

Tophawk

Not sure on Ablett mate. That calf is still giving him issues. Perhaps Gawn is your go to man if you need to beat your opponents. All or nothing move.

Fevolution25

Majak daw hit out to advantage straight down Ziebels throat and is only awarded 3 points

Tophawk

What's Goldy on? Appears he is dominating.

Phil

65

Tophawk

Cheers Phil

Phil

Cheers

hedski

Goldy captain looking the goods.
Pity Zaha is pulling a bit of a B.Smith at the moment stinking it up on 14 at halftime.

Ryan

What do we reckon about hanners as C.

Kev

Like it

Fevolution25

Zach Merrett looks good to bring in next round should only be 495k, only one score below 90

CoachDamo

I looked at him yesterday – everyone was getting excited about Dusty but Zach had only only score below 90 and was cheaper. I'm looking at him next week.

Tommo09

What will M.Crouch be priced next week??
Thinking of trading him to Priddis and Kerridge to Selwood/Pendles

Kev

Around 375k

Powerage

Does anyone know what Points Goldy has?

Tommo09

About 95

Tommo09

Take Goldys VC or Hannebery as C???

Powerage

How many is he on now?

Powerage

C on Ablett or Ward?

poloko48

To add to carnage Bombers rookies having their off weeks – midway thru Q4:

Dea 77
Parish 67
Hartley 57
Tippa 54
MBrown 25

tom

Mitch Brown is actual crap

Powerage

Yes what a turd !

50_Shades

He was good last week boys. Such is the SC roller coaster. I think his number might be up.

Hawks

His on-field number might be up, once other players return. But he has more cash to make, and may still be handy as a swingman.

hedski

I reckon I'll hold Adams and Tippa for my swingmen. Still a week or two of fattening for turdly brown me thinks.

Phil

Zaha putrid

Saundo

How many did goldy end up with?

Phil

106

One Touch

106 before adjustment. Might get another 10

One Touch

I think he will have a week off

Cliffy

Hey guys, which of these guys should I field at M8?

JSmith, Hewitt or Menadue?

Cheers 🙂

hedski

The way the rounds going cliffy menapoo!

SC God

Go menadue cliffy

David

Hanners, Parker or Ward this week?

Tophawk

l am going Luke Parker this week for C.

Tommo09

What is a par score this round???
I know it's early

DeaRockz!

All those impatient fools who traded out Matty Dea can suck a huuuuuuuge one!

#plentymorecashtobemade

hedski

Shaw killing it 47 qtr time.gaz 27 hall 11

One Touch

I warned everyone about Hall. Won't score against good teams. Suns have some tough games.

James

yeh good on ya mate
