RD8: The Heroes. The Villains. The Damned.

Published by Jock on

DBig Carl CoachKings Communityespair. Heartbreak. Anguish. Torment.

These are just some of the emotions many Fantasy footballers would have been feeling on the weekend. It may well have been one of the worst rounds in recent SuperCoach history.

First the plethora of key outs on selection night, forcing us to go in with skeleton sides. Then, the poor scoring. Indeed, there were more spuds than a potato factory.

There was mediocrity everywhere you looked. It oozed out of every match. Things became so bad the Community’s very own Peter J Higginbottom was on the brink of swearing.

Those who passed 2000 this week were doing very well. Many, myself included, did not. One of the few positives was the fact the Community bandied together and enjoyed some rare revelry via the CoachKings format. The camaraderie shared by many punters via this platform helped ease the pain on an otherwise torrid round. We saw The Shadow Cat emerge from the Dandenong Club to take his place alongside the greats. His score of 1056 netted him glory, adoration of the fantasy community, and $1000 in the sky rocket

The Heroes

Scott Pendlebury (157 SC)

The highest score from a SuperCoach-relevant player this round. Although, Treloar and Gibbs will quickly fall into this category if they keep going the way they are. Vintage Pendles is win/win for all involved – rewarding those who started with him and pleasing those who traded him in at a cheaper price a few weeks ago.

Sam Docherty (147 SC)

Has confirmed his status as a premium top-six defender this season. Like his side, is in blistering form at the minute. Just keeps racking them up. 33 touches, including 22 kicks, in another dominant display. At just over 500K, it’s not too late to get him in.

Patrick Dangerfield (132 SC)

Really admire the way he carried himself in the first match against his former side. Did media all week in the lead up. Embraced the hype. Said he didn’t mind being booed. This bloke is an absolute competitor. Rewarded many who put the VC on him. Was great watching him and Sloane go head-to-head.

Honourable mentions:

Adam Treloar (169 SC), Bryce Gibbs (147 SC), Heath Shaw (143 SC), Rory Sloane (142SC), Dan Hannebery (138 SC), Zach Merrett (130 SC), Dayne Zorko (130 SC), Steel Sidebottom (126 SC), Kade Simpson (125 SC).

The Villains

Brodie Smith (22 SC)

Very close to featuring in The Damned category. It is all very well for rookies to play a full game and only score 30-odd, but Smith? Isn’t he supposed to be a premo defender? Had actually pretty consistent before this match, which made his score all the more insulting. Just couldn’t get near it. Only six touches. What an abomination.

Max Gawn (47 SC)

There is something about playing the Western Bulldogs that seems to frighten ruckmen. First Goldy and Jacobs, now Gawn. Perhaps it is the imposing presence of Tom Campbell…but I doubt it. It is hard to put your finger on it. But those with Nic Nat, take note. He will be up against the Dogs in a couple of weeks.

David Zaharakis (46 SC)

Copped the Jacobs tag and felt the wrath of many angry owners. But if he is in your side, ask yourself this…did you really pick him thinking he was going to finish the season as a top 10 midfielder? If the answer is no, you should have never selected him in the first place. Was the first time he had been tagged, so expect other teams to deploy similar tactics against him in the future.

Honourable mentions:

Luke Parker (75 SC), Tom Mitchell (70 SC), Joel Selwood (69 SC), Dayne Beams (66 SC), Jasper Pittard (64 SC), Chad Wingard (63 SC), Dale Thomas (54 SC).

The Redeemers

Matt Priddis (123 SC)

Finally bounced back to form, which will please his owners. Those who don’t have him will be frothing to pick him up at under 500K. A break even of 95 means you might be able to wait another week as well. But if he can return to his best, there is plenty of value there.

Tom Scully (121 SC)

For years the whipping boy of many supporters due to his big pay packet and his inconsistent form in the first few years after he landed at GWS. But this season is showing everyone why he went number one and what a player he can be. An elite endurance runner, he clearly is one of the main beneficiaries of the interchange cap. At 525K, is well worth a look.

Tom Liberatore (128 SC)

Many a coach, including a couple of my mates, were off Libba a couple of weeks back. Not playing in the midfield, they said. “Hold”, I countered. “He will be bounce back”, I protested. I was right. It was the Libba of old. A record-equally 19 tackles helped boost his score, but he has showed Bevo he is at his best playing on the inside.

Honourable mentions:

Jordan DeGoey (107 SC), Jesse Lonergan (97 SC), Matt Dea (88 SC).

The Prodigies

Jacob Hopper (107 SC)

Boy, wasn’t this young man impressive on debut. Had 33 touches and looked right at home playing in the middle. Has a strong AFL-ready body and just hunts the footy. Inflated price of 193K, but will be strongly considered by many if he produces another quality performance next week.

Mason Cox (102 SC)

The American beanpole proved too tall for Brisbane’s shoe-string defence. Kicked four goals while providing arguably a better vocal point than Travis Cloke. His ability to quickly adapt to a game he had never even heard of two years ago has impressed many.

Darcy Parish (79 SC)

Callum Mills was all the rage in the pre season, when the more astute pick at the same money would have been Parish. Has clearly out performed counterparts Mills and Oliver and has been reasonably consistent. Unfortunately it is too late to jump on for those that don’t have him.

Honourable mentions:

Josh Smith (82SC), Ben Kennedy (77 SC) Ben Keays (76 SC), Michael Hartley (72 SC), Tippa (70 SC), Darcy MacPherson (59 SC).

The Damned

Mitch Brown (29 SC)

Returned to his old ways in a clear sign it is time for him to be culled. Ordinary just doesn’t even cut it. Coming off scores of 88 and 96 in his past two, many had the faith to play him on field. They were bitterly disappointed.

Connor Menadue (33 SC)

How does he keep getting a game for Richmond? Like Brown and Papley, how the hell can you play a full game of footy and only score 30-odd? Many played these blokes on field this week because of the high number of outs and they severely let us down. Cue the rage trading.

Tom Papley (29 SC)

This is yo-yo scoring to the extreme. High scores of 109, 104 and 85 combined with lows of 24, 29 and 46. Every time he goes big, he seems to be on the bench. Every time you are forced to play him on the field in your hour of need, he produces absolute filth. Bloody frustrating, Community.

Honourable mentions:

Tommy Sheridan (late withdrawal), Callum Mills (59 SC), Kade Kolodjashnij (55 SC), Matt Crouch (53 SC), Brad Crouch (46 SC).

Over to you Community, who were your Heroes and Villains from this round?

please note all Super Coaches,

they haven't updated the scores for West Coast. if you have west Coast players in your side, your score will be wrong. add it up.

everyone needs to send an email so they fix it. I've lost a H2H because of it.

click "contact us" at the bottom of your team page

    Shenanigans · 16/05/2016 at 10:53

    Mine's correct mate. Nicnat my only eagle.

      Nathan · 16/05/2016 at 11:13

      No it doesn't mate- you will be 4 points out. It may say 116 but you have only been paid 112

    Jai · 16/05/2016 at 10:55

    Mmmm yeah nah mine adds up correctly mate

      Nathan · 16/05/2016 at 11:13

      If you have west coast players- no it doesnt

    Loop · 16/05/2016 at 10:57

    I just added mine up and my onfield scores total more than I've been given on my home page total. I have two West Coast players.

      Nathan · 16/05/2016 at 11:12


    Ratitat · 16/05/2016 at 11:14

    Mine is wrong. how do we get that fixed??

      nathan · 16/05/2016 at 11:36

      ive sent emails – hopefully they can fix it and the league loss I've just copped because of it

    Chris · 16/05/2016 at 11:21

    Yeah mine doesn't add up.. 2105 on game day score, they recorded 2099

      Ratitat · 16/05/2016 at 11:24

      mine total is also 6 points shy

        nathan · 16/05/2016 at 11:37

        read my post – everyone needs to send them an email – team page down the bottom "contact us"

          Ratitat · 16/05/2016 at 11:39

          I sent them one

            nathan · 16/05/2016 at 12:37

            you had Priddis if your exactly 6 points short

              You Silly · 16/05/2016 at 13:30

              The Vigilance is strong in you…. Happily I won by over 300 points so i don't give one piece of a rats butt hole…

                Nathan · 16/05/2016 at 18:22

                Cool story tough guy

    onbeebe · 16/05/2016 at 11:30

    I've got Priddis and Nicnat and what is shown on gameday is correct. Perhaps there is a common west coast player that making this happen for other teams? I wish it was wrong 6 points as I lost by 6 points in a cash league head to head.

      onbeebe · 16/05/2016 at 11:34

      Actually now that you mention it, the numbers add up alright, but they are different to what is shown as my total when looking at the league page and the game result summaries. Weird

      nathan · 16/05/2016 at 11:38

      if you add up the total scores for the game – its 3268 – they haven't added the post game updates.

      SC have buggered up – there is still 32 points to outlay which are the 4 points to Nic Nat, 6 points to priddis, etc.

      Footy wire have the correct scores and fan footy have the incorrect scores if you want to compare

        onbeebe · 16/05/2016 at 11:47

        Yeah, so in gameday they have the correct scaled scores, but the actual score shown on results hasn't been scaled up for total supercoach points for the game.

          nathan · 16/05/2016 at 11:51

          that is correct – also for your league results.

          go to your H2H and look over to the right hand side (Such and Such DEF BY Such and Such) to see the incorrect score.

    clubber lang · 16/05/2016 at 11:42

    same here, added up my totals equaled to 2228, they gave me 2218 when supercoach opened!
    i pity the fools who run SC!

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 16/05/2016 at 12:23

    Looks like they r fixing it now.
    With scaling won two hth I had orginially lost.

    Thanks mate.

      nathan · 16/05/2016 at 12:34

      yep they are fixing it, but I hope they fix the leagues H2H as well – I lost by 4 points because of it.

      they have fixed my overall score though

    Wattsieesq · 16/05/2016 at 13:06

    Great pick up. My score and rank have been adjusted upwards now. Cheers

      Shake n bake · 16/05/2016 at 16:36

      Do you have to email to get it fixed or will the just do it for everybody?

        Wattsieesq · 16/05/2016 at 17:49

        Automatically done

I N Pieman · 16/05/2016 at 10:45

Darcy Byrne Jones deserves a mention Carl. Had him & papsmear on the ground. Stopped a 2300! Pricks

    Bush · 16/05/2016 at 11:13

    Yes definitely needs a mention in there

    Big Carl · 16/05/2016 at 15:59

    Spot on, mate. I had him on my field as well. Should have been mentioned, slipped through the cracks when I was compiling all the scores. My bad.

Topdog · 16/05/2016 at 10:50

Oooooooh Campbell-san, he beautiful boy. He tore Maxy Gawn new asshole so he score sh*t point – Welcome!

Tommo · 16/05/2016 at 10:53

Any good rookie defenders/forwards either on the bubble or close to? My defensive/forward rookies have seemed to have all peaked at the same time.

    Bill · 16/05/2016 at 11:05

    Not really

    Matt · 16/05/2016 at 12:18

    Bailey Williams looked really good for the Dogs on the weekend. Although he may struggle to keep his spot once Suckling, Adams, Johanissen, etc return from injury

      BKW · 16/05/2016 at 17:49

      Yeah he can play, ball magnet – just filling a slot until suckling and JJ get back, but with Boyd out this week should retain his spot for this week at least

    @HeiroDAB · 16/05/2016 at 18:21

    Jack Leslie

      Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 18:32


Rob · 16/05/2016 at 10:57

Which defender to get for KK.

I have 630K to get a defender.

My defence is Shaw, Docherty, Houli, (KK), Adams, DBJ, Bryne, Ruggles.


    Tommo · 16/05/2016 at 11:00


    Bill · 16/05/2016 at 11:01

    Gibson, Savage, Bartel?

    Steeeve · 16/05/2016 at 11:08

    Missed the deadline to trade KK out before his first game (when he missed) and thought it was good, because that way he'd be a POD. Now I realise those who dropped him dodged a massive bullet.

    ThatDamnRascal · 16/05/2016 at 11:11

    I suggest looking at your bye coverage and select accordingly

    Mac · 16/05/2016 at 11:21


    Bigballsboys · 16/05/2016 at 12:16

    Boyd, Simpson are a must!
    Maybe Gibson

      Ben · 16/05/2016 at 18:46

      When Johannison come back Boyd wont be scoring so well.

    Neverweaken · 16/05/2016 at 17:41

    Boyd or simpson

      BKW · 16/05/2016 at 17:51

      Boyd likely suspended this week – I was at the game and his hit was pretty crude, very unlike Boydy who is one of the fairest players going around

        Neverweaken · 16/05/2016 at 19:46

        Grrrr. Have suckling and Adams on the bench. 3!doggies defenders on the bench! Adams might have to go.

Heisenberg · 16/05/2016 at 11:06

If I have a zero on the field, but have both respective bench players as emergencies, which player substitutes the zero? Would've thought the higher scoring player but doesn't appear to be the case. Anyone know the rule with that community?

    Tommo · 16/05/2016 at 11:13

    Lowest score gets counted

      Kev · 16/05/2016 at 13:00

      It's in the faq. Always been lowest scoring

      Confused · 16/05/2016 at 15:37

      So if I have 2 x Zero's on field on same line and 2 x emergancies selected on same line do I get both as emergancies?? If not then why is the option even available??!!

        hedski · 16/05/2016 at 15:46

        You should get both mate

Steeeve · 16/05/2016 at 11:07

Darcy Macpherson worth a look this week? All my rookies have achievable break evens and Priddis won't go up by much. Thinking I could even hold if I wanted to.

    Blueth · 16/05/2016 at 11:18

    yeah i'm in the same boat, could go Hewett to Mapherson but that would only get $144,000. Best move is to hold i think and hopefully Hopper plays well against the dogs

    jezzahill · 16/05/2016 at 11:59

    You could hold (depends on how many trades you have left), but you have to ask yourself is a rookie going to outscore Priddis this week? I would say 99% no, so I'm trading Mills/Hewett to Priddis/MacPherson. Supercoach is all about getting a full premium side as quickly as possible and getting as many points out of your salary cap as possible. You can still get Priddis cheap next week, but not as cheap as he is now.

      Steeeve · 16/05/2016 at 12:40

      Yeah that's what I'm thinking. It's just the best ones to drop are Menadue, Hewett or Davis. None of them are worth anything. (Already dropped Mills). Only other option is to drop Ben Ken or Kerridge but neither of them seem to be a real priority.

        jezzahill · 16/05/2016 at 12:46

        It's all relative to how many trades you've used and how far you are off a premium side, really!

          Steeeve · 16/05/2016 at 13:56

          Only way I can get Priddis is to downgrade to a rookie forward or defender… any options there? Cos I'm not seeing any good ones

            jezzahill · 16/05/2016 at 14:18

            Probably Marcus Adams to Bailey Williams (Def/Mid) from the Dogs if you're desperate for a downgrade, but I would wait for teams to drop for this week before pulling the trigger on that trade. Ben Crocker (Mid/Fwd) from the Pies is also on the bubble this week but job security and point scoring is the issue. Kaiden Brand from the Hawks is on the bubble as well, but he's a key position defender so JS/point scoring is the problem again – particularly at the Hawks. But with them playing the Swans this week they will need his height in defence so he may be okay.

      Blueth · 16/05/2016 at 21:22

      by not trading in priddis until next week you're also minimising risk. If he goes down this weekend you might've saved yourself 2 trades by holding

TommyD21 · 16/05/2016 at 11:10


This week im thinking

Kerridge – Macpherson
KK – Bartel
Leave 200k odd in the warchest

Or do I go a double downgrade and have KK down to Lee and leave $585k in the war chest?

    Boltons Blues · 16/05/2016 at 11:17

    If Kerridge is your biggest rookie problem, then youre in a good spot.
    id be holding him has a be of 70 and an avg of 83 and has pumped out a couple 100s

    The Mountain · 16/05/2016 at 13:02

    Why would you dowgrade to a rookie that hasnt played in 3-4 weeks, paint the fence and bring in a either shaw, simpson, doc, laird, boyd, bartel, in that order if you dont have one of them yet

    50_Shades · 17/05/2016 at 00:47

    Kerridge might still be worth holding, but if you've already made that call, then I like the macpherson trade.

    I'd have bartel behind some others like docherty, Simpson, Rance etc

The Mountain · 16/05/2016 at 11:10

G'day community

I've got two options this week

Option 1: brown to McPherson via dpp and Adams to doc
Option 2: brown to McPherson via dpp and kerridge to zorko

Option 1 means my backline is shaw, Simpson, laird, doc, rich, dbj

Option 2 means my fowardline is Zorko, Martin, hall, Greene, wells and Ben ken

Thoughts on the best option


    Boltons Blues · 16/05/2016 at 11:19

    Who will score more from here on out? Doc or Zorko?
    im thinking Doc and with a B/E of 37, 512k is cheap

      Leeds17 · 16/05/2016 at 12:03

      Defender outscoring a Forward?

    jezzahill · 16/05/2016 at 12:01

    Yeah I'd be on Docherty this week

      Higgo's Dog · 16/05/2016 at 13:38

      McPherson ? what's his job security like…. Wouldn't Hopper be better?

        The Mountain · 16/05/2016 at 14:22

        To expensive for my liking mate, if mcpherson can at least make 150K id be happy

          50_Shades · 17/05/2016 at 00:48

          Docherty is a very good buy – limited time only.
          I like your option 1.

Higgo's Dog · 16/05/2016 at 11:11

Any advice would be gladly accepted…I scored just over 1800 last game and don't know what to do next….???

22 trades left…47K in bank.

    Papsmear or menaspud to McPherson and weits to either doc or laird who should be back this week

      Higgo's Dog · 16/05/2016 at 13:37

      McPherson ? what's his job security like….

      Would Hopper be better even though he has played 1 game?

        jezzahill · 16/05/2016 at 13:43

        The Suns are absolutely decimated by injury at the moment so his job security is solid at least until the byes, which by then you can probably trade him out. You're right, Hopper is probably a better option but his job security is arguably less stable than MacPherson's. I'm holding off on him for this week but will probably grab him after his next game.

          Higgo's Dog · 16/05/2016 at 14:00

          Thanks Jezza

        Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 14:22

        Got to also factor in one of them is only 100k vs 200k. Makes a big difference if a low score or two occur.

          Higgo's Dog · 16/05/2016 at 14:59

          Good point SS

      Joel · 17/05/2016 at 12:23

      I think Adelaide have said Laird is likely to be another week away.

Frog daddy · 16/05/2016 at 11:12

How many trades have we all got , I have 19 (without making my trades for this round which will probably be 2) . Should I be saving for bye rounds or what !!? Help please

    jezzahill · 16/05/2016 at 12:06

    I've got 21 left after making a couple of trades already this week. I've got 6 definite upgrades left to make (DBJ, Adams, Libba, Wells, Kerridge, Petracca) before I have 22 players on field that I'm happy with. I'd factor in a downgrade trade as well as an upgrade trade to complete my side, so 6 upgrades left means a further 12 trades. This may not be the case as some rookies (ie: Wells) could end up being sideways trades, but that's the way I'm thinking atm. I reckon as long as the players you're bringing in aren't making your byes too lopsided, then you can trade as much as you like.

      50_Shades · 17/05/2016 at 00:54

      Frog, I'm in the same boat and about 6 premiums left to upgrade. I expect to use 10 to get to that point which leaves 9 for the SC gods to torment me with.

Steele · 16/05/2016 at 11:12

Who to trade out first?


Getting Docherty in and I'm 9k from using M.Brown/Hartley.

    Bill · 16/05/2016 at 11:28

    None of those 3 because they still have cash to be made and BE are low

      Steele · 16/05/2016 at 21:33

      Adams and DBJ have BE's in the 60's so there isn't that much more cash to be made……..

    Leeds17 · 16/05/2016 at 11:43

    If Adams isn't picked this week I'd be tempted to trade him but all 3 have BEs under their average.

      50_Shades · 17/05/2016 at 00:56

      It's easy to get attached to the little lambs and as good as Adams has been, Docherty is a great upgrade target.

      Id move him on before the others.

Blueth · 16/05/2016 at 11:17

If Brad Crouch can't tonne up against the Suns then no one should have him in 2 weeks.
Got a mental gif of him dropping that chest mark in the pocket. Goddamnit Brad, basics.

    Boltons Blues · 16/05/2016 at 11:23

    I have 300k in the bank, i can either upgrade him to a premo and be full premo in my midfield or do you reckon downgrade to hopper and then upgrade somewhere else?

      Blueth · 16/05/2016 at 14:01

      I've been pretty sweaty about Hopper since watching him in the Champs last year so if he plays well next week against the dogs and Crouch doesn't tonne up against the suns then Hopper is in.

Ratitat · 16/05/2016 at 11:21

Simpson or Boyd

    Redgumwon · 16/05/2016 at 13:59

    either but I think working on getting both in by the years end

    Neverweaken · 16/05/2016 at 17:42

    Aim for both. I have Docherty and Boyd. So aiming for Simpson. Though Gibson is tempting

    Crowmagnon · 16/05/2016 at 17:43

    whichever suits your bye structure better.

    Lucas vassis · 17/05/2016 at 08:50

    Boyd out for 1

Walter · 16/05/2016 at 11:23

Not really sure what trades to go with this week, wanna bring in prides but my mids are pretty set.
Team is:
Shaw, Simpson, Laird, B.Smith, Tippa, DBJ (Hartley, Rugjes)
Danger, Parker, Zorko, Ablett, S.Mitchell, Wines, Zaha, Libba (J.Smith, Keays, Gore)
Gawn, S.Martin (Grimley)
Hall, Wright, Wells, Kerridge, B.Kennedy, Daniel (Petracca, M.Brown)
Any Suggestions?? Cheers

    Walter · 16/05/2016 at 11:27

    Have 109k in the bank also

      Dillon Panthers · 16/05/2016 at 11:39

      Whichever rook gives you enough coin, out. Zorko fwd, prid welcome

    Vinny · 16/05/2016 at 11:44

    Put zorko in your forward line and Kerridge into midfield?
    Trade out M.Brown and get in Crocker
    Trade out Kerridge and get in Priddis

Bane · 16/05/2016 at 11:41

using 5 trades in both cases (over 3 weeks)

Option 1
I get pendles, bartel and boyd (with no cash left)

Option 2
I get zorko, priddis, boyd with 100k left

Which one community?

    Matt · 16/05/2016 at 12:16

    option 2

    Redgumwon · 16/05/2016 at 14:00

    option 2

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 14:51

    Pendles, Priddis and Bartel?

      Bane · 16/05/2016 at 20:59

      Can't only have 1 mid spot left

Andy · 16/05/2016 at 11:47

I've had enough of Menadue! He turns the ball over way too much so he's gone from my team. I'll turn him in to MacPherson if named.

I've also had enough of KK! From missing the first game to he's crappy scores recently he is really testing my patience. I usually don't sideways trade (I kept Barlow and Greene) but I don't think I can do it anymore. I'm thinking of going KK to Docherty but I've ready got Simpson- is this a factor do you think?

Cheers community all the best for the rest of the year!

    Kev · 16/05/2016 at 13:03

    Hold Andy. Your patience with Barlow and Greene paid off

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 14:19

    Why would having both Simpson and Docherty be a factor?

      Average Joe · 16/05/2016 at 14:33

      I think he means will they share points, but they've both scored well so far

        Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 14:50

        They've both scored well all year so that couldn't be a factor surely?

          Moggy · 16/05/2016 at 19:59

          If I need to choose between them who would you guys go for? Simpson or Docherty ???.

            Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 20:48

            That's an incredibly tough question. They have both scored almost exactly the same total points, do you take the risk on the younger guy Doch who had a huge game last week or Simpson who is probably the most reliable defender in the comp?

            I'd get both, but I'd get Doch this week as he's cheaper and on a 37 BE.

              50_Shades · 17/05/2016 at 01:07


James · 16/05/2016 at 11:49

My team is

Shaw Enright Houli Laird AMT DBJ (Ruggles Byrne)

Dangerfield Hannebery Ablett ward Shiel priddis Zieball Petracca ( Hewett Davis Gresham)

Gawn Nic Nat (lorensch)

Hall Martin Wells De goey Benken Kerridge (Menadue non playing rookie)

Was thinking of going Davis or Gresham to macpherson then trading Kerridge to Any premo Mid

Thoughts community

    nathan · 16/05/2016 at 11:55

    my thoughts are that you have the wrong round 8 score lol – oh Nic Nat & Priddis

    Billo · 17/05/2016 at 02:28

    Mcpherson and Zorko?

jezzahill · 16/05/2016 at 11:52

Nice wrap up, Big Carl. Managed to squeeze out a 2054 with all of Laird, Adams, R. Gray and Wells on the pine. Hewett and Mills out this week, in come Priddis and MacPherson to paint the fence.

The Beard · 16/05/2016 at 11:53

Simpson, Doch, or Boyd?

    Wattsieesq · 16/05/2016 at 13:31

    In that order

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 14:48

    Doch 847*, Simpson 851*, Boyd 813*.

    *Total points for season.

    Doch seems good value at 512k

    Neverweaken · 16/05/2016 at 17:44

    Aim for all of them. Have Docherty and Boyd. Always start with Docherty and there's no one else in doggies defence. Next up simpson

      50_Shades · 17/05/2016 at 01:12

      I agree. Initially I struggled with the idea of two defenders from the same team but these two just get it done on a weekly basis.
      I've bought in doc this week and will have Simpson around the byes.

Tommo · 16/05/2016 at 12:02

What to do with Brown and Harltey? Both close to cull but no one to downgrade to? Only option at the moment is maybe downgrade De Goey, but off the back of a Ton, no sure if thats a good idea. I only have a 68k war chest so nothing good.

    Derek · 16/05/2016 at 13:40

    Lee should get a game. Was BOG in VFL

TRIGGER HAPPY · 16/05/2016 at 12:04

Surely Houli gets a gig as a villain or damned! Last minute out on Friday meant I was chewing on a donut.
$3.3 million dollar bench! Record for me esp in Rd 8.
10 outs that is a bye round as my score went bye bye.
Seriously cannot take a trick, too hard this year.

And the rooks who were on field sheesh give us some hope.

Watched paps live on Sat night. Had 2 disposals up till 3/4 time. One tackle, kick and goal late in the last to put the swans back in front was the only reason he got his b/e. It was like he was invisible. Train wreck. Rage trade gone.

Buddy on the other hand wad the main reason the swans were so close. Make no mistake he has the swagger back and is enjoying his footy which is gr8 for the game. Doesn't change my no buddy way policy in SC after attending the burns unit when he was in my team in seasons past but he is gr8 to watch.

Central · 16/05/2016 at 12:18

Is there anyway to trade out a DEF/mid and pick up a MID? I want to trade out Seedsman whos in my backline and bring in Priddis ??

    Kev · 16/05/2016 at 13:06

    If you've got swingsets in place. Hopefully by now you know how to do that

      Central · 16/05/2016 at 15:23

      not sure what you mean?

        Cam_H · 16/05/2016 at 15:39

        (Given Seedsman is Def-Mid … )

        If you have someone with Mid-Def eligibility in the midfield, such as Jimmy Bartel, then swap him and Seedsman so Bartel is in the backline, then trade Priddis in for Seedsman.

          Central · 16/05/2016 at 15:45

          ok thanks I knew about that I was just wondering about any other way as all Mids I have are Mids, Mid/Fwds

            Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 15:52

            If you have any FWD/DEF then yes it's possible, trade seed, move a FWD/DEF from forwardline to backline, then trade a MID/FWD from mid to forwardline.

            Now trade in a midfielder.

    Wattsieesq · 16/05/2016 at 13:33

    You can do it depending on your structures

    hedski · 16/05/2016 at 15:50

    If you have tippa/brown or adams fwd sub them to def after you've hit trade on seedsman will open a fwd spot then sub down a mid/fwd who's in your mids. This will open a mid spot to trade someone in. Hope that helps.

      Central · 16/05/2016 at 16:30

      Thanks hedski Im having trouble doing this everytime I go to trade it will only allow a trade of a defender. I hit Trade on Seeds then Sub on adams but by then I move to the trade page

        Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 16:41

        The trade page is where you move them 😉

        There is a large 'S' next to the names of the players in your list that you can move.

Cameron · 16/05/2016 at 12:22

Which 2 to cull first out of Brown, Hewett, Kerridge, Papley and Menadue?

    Bill · 16/05/2016 at 12:43

    they all have low BE's not sure why trade?

      Leeds17 · 16/05/2016 at 13:03

      Assuming they arnt on field I agree why trade?

        Cameron · 16/05/2016 at 13:22

        Need to get full premo asap, aim of the game boys

          Lachie · 16/05/2016 at 15:29

          nah lad

          BKW · 16/05/2016 at 18:08

          Brown or Papley – neither will make much more coin

    The Mountain · 16/05/2016 at 12:48

    Id say menaspud, papsmear and brown would be your biggest problems, id look to paint the fence if i were you mate

    I N Pieman · 16/05/2016 at 12:49

    Papsmear & Spuadue

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 13:30

    Look up their breakevens and work it out?

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 16:00

    Papley and Menadue.

Alec · 16/05/2016 at 12:23

What to do with barlow?
he was omitted last week and played in the vfl and racked up 39 disposals… but will he be selected with ross lyon more willing to play rookies and younger players from now on? thoughts and whether to get rid of him or hold as he is still worth $515K

    Steeeve · 16/05/2016 at 12:42

    Barlow played in the VFL?

      Alec · 16/05/2016 at 13:10

      hahaha my bad…you know what i mean, the WAFL

    I N Pieman · 16/05/2016 at 12:48

    Good question Alec. I have the same Dilemma. I have never had a premo dropped in my time in playing this game. Can't have done anything more to get a recall. Ross has said he needs more pace around contests. If he's not back this week I think we need to move him on. As much as that would suck

      Alec · 16/05/2016 at 13:12

      yeah he could be side ways traded to dusty or franklin or someone around that price range… but imagine if he comes back and smashes out a couple of big scores how annoyed would you feel

        I N Pieman · 16/05/2016 at 14:11

        I know. Lets just hope he's back this week & it doesn't become a conundrum. For heavens sake with Fyfe out he's probably Freo's best Mid

          Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 14:15

          Don't forget Lachie Neale, No.1 in the comp for possessions and 4th in total clearances.

    SCaddict · 16/05/2016 at 14:55

    Surely with all Freo's injuries (now including Hill and possibly Mundy) even Barlow could get a gig in their midfield?? 🙂

      Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 15:19

      Holding Barlow for sure.

Phat Man · 16/05/2016 at 12:27

G'Day community, just after your thoughts on whether im on track for full premo after the byes

Def: Shaw, simpson, laird, doc, rich, DBJ (Hartley, ruggles)
Mid: Danger, Hanners, Ward, Pridda, R.Gray, hunter, libba, smith (Gresham, Mcpherson, dunkley)
Ruck Goldy, Martin (Grimley)
Fwd: Martin, hall, greene, wells, kerridge, ben ken (Tippa, petracca)

Ive got 20 trades left after making two this week
Brown -> Mcpherson
Adams -> Doc

Ive only got 4 rookies on field that need to be upgraded so by painting the fence thats 8 used, and im hoping I can carry rich and greene for a while before i need to upgrade them.


hedski · 16/05/2016 at 12:29

Looking at
"Zero" Davis ==> MacPherson and
"Raging Dyke" MenRPoo ==> Zerret.
Priddis next week..

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 15:13

    Like those trades MacPherson should make 200k and Zerrett seems to have silenced the critics since his 53.

      hedski · 16/05/2016 at 16:47

      Cheers SS. Zorko the magnificent is slightly out of reach at the moment. Bye time hopefully.

Joel · 16/05/2016 at 12:38

Simpson or docherty?

    LEKD0G · 16/05/2016 at 12:44

    Simpson for consistency but Docherty for value

    Alec · 16/05/2016 at 13:13

    why not both?

LEKD0G · 16/05/2016 at 12:44

Very good read mate, keep up the great work!

The Ranger · 16/05/2016 at 12:47

Beams and Rockliff are killing my byes planning.
I was gonna to bring one if not both of them in to alleviate my Rd15 issues.

    I N Pieman · 16/05/2016 at 14:12

    Beams done for the season mate

      Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 14:43

      Saw that someone had him in their team last week!

      The Ranger · 16/05/2016 at 14:53

      Yeah not good for me or the Lions.
      I'll have to look at another Rd15 premo.
      Ward was always a possibility anyway and I'd love to get Selwood if I can afford him.
      Big IF that…

Ted · 16/05/2016 at 12:53

What are thoughts on Gazza? I see him slipping is he really a keeper?

    The Mountain · 16/05/2016 at 13:15

    Mate hes averaging 110….. what would you say most keepers would average

      Danners · 16/05/2016 at 19:42

      Exactly what I was thinking, he is no longer a certain captain option week in, week out

        Ted · 16/05/2016 at 21:00

        Well he is definitely showing his age and well he might be 110 now but might not be in 3 weeks. He's getting banged up and its showing he cant take the hits he use to. He's sliding every week! Love the guy not saying I'm going to trade him yet? But the question was really just a inquiry as to what people of the community were thinking, he seems to be slipping more and more every week.

    Rick Grimes · 16/05/2016 at 14:08

    Is that really a question? Same was being said of Dependles a few weeks back. Class is permanent.

      Ted · 16/05/2016 at 22:50

      I have had Pendels since day 1 and never questioned but old man Ablett has every reason to be question as you mom should be about you!

    Redgumwon · 16/05/2016 at 14:14

    Hold Gazza he's a keeper and like the Mountain said he's averaging 110

    Monty · 16/05/2016 at 19:55

    I think he is back just quietly. He's just played at the 2 worst grounds for opposition midfielders (Skilled & Spotless) and scored 90's. If that's his worst, I'll back him to average 110+ from here on.

      Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 21:28

      Yep he did fine. He'll probably miss this week due to concussion but trading him doesn't make sense to me. A 102 and a 99 in those two smashings is really respectable.

Blake · 16/05/2016 at 12:57

Who to get for Wingard? $440,800 in bank

    The Mountain · 16/05/2016 at 12:59

    Zorko, lukey dal, dusty, buddy, joey mont, hall, zerret. take your pick

    Steeeve · 16/05/2016 at 14:33

    I'm holding out of ridiculous stubbornness

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 14:42

    It's almost too late to trade him he's lost 150k, and 440k won't get you anything except a mediocre player that could backfire like Wingard.

    SCaddict · 16/05/2016 at 14:59

    You know it's kind of too late to trade him when coaches are actually considering bringing him in soon, even if it's to be eventually groomed as a future F7/M9 bench support. Would leave him for now and possibly ditch him when he has his Rd14 bye if he's still spudding it up.

    Surely you have fully fattened rookies to upgrade first?

      Harry · 16/05/2016 at 20:17

      Yeah I agree with that. I'm stuck with him too but now so committed I just have to hang on and hope he turns it around. He has had concussion and hammy issues so I'm hoping with some continuity comes form. But it's only hope right now as he's definitely in potato territory at the moment!

min0008 · 16/05/2016 at 13:02

Hi community

I'm wondering what trades to make this week.
Option 1: Brown to McPherson and DBJ to Docherty

Option 2: Brown to McPherson and Kerridge to Zorko

I'm leaning towards Option 1 at the moment

    The Mountain · 16/05/2016 at 13:13

    To early to trade DBJ i reckon mate

    Tommo · 16/05/2016 at 14:05

    No need to trade DBJ as of yet

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 14:06

    Has three scores around 100 you could regret trading DBJ.

    Kerridge can also hit his 70 BE.

      50_Shades · 17/05/2016 at 01:17

      Yes, hold kerridge and dbj. Can you make it happen with any other rookies?

        min0008 · 17/05/2016 at 12:10

        I can do it if I trade Adams

Paul96 · 16/05/2016 at 13:07

Hey community

Wanted an opinion on what I should do with Gaff. Had him since the start as a POD, gets heaps of the pill but his efficiency and lack of contested ball is a real worry.

Do I hold and just hope he gets better, or cut the losses now and sideways trade to a more proven scorer?

    Redgumwon · 16/05/2016 at 14:18

    I'd look at using him to upgrade to a ultra premium. He just turns it over to much for me

    Tommo · 16/05/2016 at 17:02

    You probably have bigger issues to deal with, upgrade him to ultra premo but deal with other issues such as rookies. He will be a good scorer for you for now.

    Danners · 16/05/2016 at 19:41

    If I have learnt one thing this season, it is that patience is the key. HOLD

    Beagz · 17/05/2016 at 13:27

    Definitely hold. This should be the LAST upgrade you do. Rookies and lower performing premiums/mid pricers are your first priority. Aim to upgrade him after the bye.

Beagz · 16/05/2016 at 13:25

Hi Guys!

Currently sitting 42 overall and wanting some advice from you guys!

Who are the best rookies at the moment?

Looking at Hopper but want would prefer to look at him for another week.
Other option is Macpherson but don't know how high his ceiling is (would want to make at least 150k off him).

Any help would be largely appreciated!

-Fisting Action

    Derek · 16/05/2016 at 13:59

    Sensational team. JKen, hall and buddy as your 3 forward premiums has paid off. Played the near perfect game so far.

    Your rookies all look good. No real need to cull. Save trades. Don't look at your rank, just keep playing well and the rank will look after itself.

      Beagz · 16/05/2016 at 14:44

      Thinking of pulling the plug on Gresham and getting Macpherson on my bench. Will some money but will cost two trades so I'm not keen.

      Struggling to find value in FWD and DEF rookies to bring in for my almost ripe back line though. Any suggestions?

      Beagz · 16/05/2016 at 14:44

      Thanks a lot Derek, appreciate the advice.

      Lachie · 16/05/2016 at 15:54

      JKen hasn't been that good of a pick mate.. Jken has been getting 80s and 90s, with the few exceptions of 180 and 140 obviously.

        Beagz · 16/05/2016 at 16:15

        Very happy with JKen, for a full forward averaging more than 100 is more than I hoped for at the start of the season. Buddy I only brought in this week so hopefully after Swans tough fixture he will kick many more bags. Still working around the ground which is promising as well.

        Looking to get Zorko into the forward line next

          Derek · 16/05/2016 at 16:28

          You already have JKen and Buddy in your forwards. i's be looking at "mainstream" for your other selections. Ie Zorko, Dalhaus, Montagna. You will kill it in the home stretch if you can have a loophole on your forward line and have JKen/Buddy as your F6/F7

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 14:03

    You will make 150k on MacPherson no doubt (if he stays fit and keeps being named)

    He only costs 100k and scored 77 and 59.

      Leeds17 · 16/05/2016 at 15:58

      If he been half decent by foot too it would have been 70+

        Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 16:11

        His tackle count is high too. 6 tackles first game and 9 in the next one. Good signs for consistent scoring.

          Beagz · 16/05/2016 at 16:49

          Thanks guys, certainly promising numbers by the young guy.

    Redgumwon · 16/05/2016 at 14:12

    I'd look at using him to upgrade to a ultra premium. He just turns it over to much for me

      Redgumwon · 16/05/2016 at 14:17

      Sorry wrong thread I've posted in

    Tommo · 16/05/2016 at 17:02

    You your 42nd, you should be giving us advice!!!

      Tommo · 16/05/2016 at 17:03


        Derek · 16/05/2016 at 17:23

        ive got a feeling you didn't start the season with Lobbe and Wingard like some of us 😉

          Beagz · 16/05/2016 at 17:32

          Haha no i didn't start with any port players.

          I was very very close to starting with: Steele, Polec and J Cameron so I was on a knifes edge!

Rico · 16/05/2016 at 13:46

Out of these 4 options who would be most reliable and solid:


    Steeeve · 16/05/2016 at 13:55

    Exactly as you have them… in reverse

      Lachie · 16/05/2016 at 15:54

      Zorko will be the highest average fwd.

        annoying old lady · 16/05/2016 at 19:09

        *if he continues scoring like he is.

        Zorko seems like the real deal this year (finally). Always remember, what a difference a week can make! Zorko, although he has been brilliant all season, has the tendency to go missing at times during the season. I'm certain he'll be a top 6 fwd by years end, so getting him in is a priority, but I would honestly prefer Dahlhaus over Zorko.

        Dahlhaus has shown over the past few seasons that he is a must have up forward. That's why I would suggest the list should be as follows:

        I would not be looking to bring in Neale or Gibbs. If you're after someone different, Leigh Montagna is 530k at the moment, and he is joining my team this week!

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 14:08

    Dahlhouse, Neale, Zorko, Gibbs.

    Beagz · 17/05/2016 at 08:07

    Neale most reliable then zorko

mark · 16/05/2016 at 13:55

Community should I either do
Mitch Brown to Docherty and kerridge to pendles
Adams to Docherty and kerridge to montagna
Thanks for the help

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 14:12

    Don't have Menadue/Davis type players to cull instead of Kerridge?

      The Mountain · 16/05/2016 at 14:18

      option 1 any day of the week

        Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 14:26


        mark · 16/05/2016 at 14:27

        Sorry it's Mitch Brown to montagna
        Or Adams to pendles

        And if I trade menadue I won't have enough to do the double trade

          Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 14:39

          I'd do a downgrade to Macpherson this week, and one upgrade.

Michael · 16/05/2016 at 14:09

Comunnity any ideas for trades this week. ive got 19 trades left with 115 k in the bank.

def- shaw, simpson, laird, pittard, hartley, byrne jones,( brown, ruggles)
mid- dangerfield, pendles, parker, priddis, shiel, s.mitchell, liberatore, keays,(hewett, davis, dunkley)
Ruck- Gawn, Nic nat (goetz)
Fwd- zorko, martin, hall, barlow, wells, kerridge( petracca, mcgovern)

    Wayno76 · 16/05/2016 at 14:56

    Hold your trades

    Kev · 16/05/2016 at 14:58

    I'd hold off mate. Your onfield rookies are still making cash

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 15:17

    Your mid bench is a bit average and you've missed the growth of Josh Smith, I'd probably get MacPherson in for Davis or Dunkley. probably the latter as it seems the doggies won't be bringing him in anytime soon.

Juzzy · 16/05/2016 at 14:33

Hi Community,

I was lucky enough to score 2167 this week due to numerous swingsets and that got me thinking.

Although my initial reaction was to target a premo defender or mid this week I am contemplating swinging Dusty into the mids and bringing in Tippett as a F6. I passed on Cox, and Grimley is my only cover for Goldy and Gawn.
As tempting as it is to bring in Ward, Hanners, Rance, Doc etc .. if Tippet can average around 95 and give Ruck cover it may be a better long term choice. Any thoughts ?

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 14:38

    Up to you but against WCE, Crows, GWS who all have good rucks he scored 65-75.

    I don't like it personally and have faith in my ruckmen if they go down with injury I'll trade, not gonna compromise the quality of my team for ruck swing.

    Tommo · 16/05/2016 at 14:46

    Not sure if he will be able to keep up that average to be honest. Big tall forwards are always a risky pick. It will help that he does a bit of ruckwork though.

      Juzzy · 16/05/2016 at 15:00

      Thanks for the thoughts guys.

      I may be buying into the "Goldy will be rested" paranoia that surfaces every week to the detriment of my initial plan.
      Will give it some further thought. Ta.

    Derek · 16/05/2016 at 16:23

    you just have to tuck a trade or two aside at the start of the year as your security for your rucks. if you don't need them, great.

    Neverweaken · 16/05/2016 at 19:54

    I've had Tippett since the start as a hunch. Nearly traded him. Happy to keep him but unless you have a ruck forward to swing I wouldn't bother.

Liam · 16/05/2016 at 15:09

Kerridge to Priddis

Hewett to Macpherson

Good trades community?

    I N Pieman · 16/05/2016 at 15:17

    Hewett has a BE of 30. He isn't done making cash yet. And I think Kerridge still has more to make as well. His BE of 70 is very achievable. Maybe slaughtering those lads a little early

Thomas · 16/05/2016 at 15:20

Need midfield premiums so
Kerridge to Pendles
M.Crouch to Priddis

Next week downgrades to get some more cash as I only have 34k left

Libba and Kennedy my only non-premiums in the midfield as I have Danger, Gaz, Parker, Hanners already

Fwd line needs 2 upgrades and back needs 3

Any suggestions whether to keeps these trades or or do downgrades this week
Have many cows to cull next week

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 15:33

    Who are you going to downgrade to next week though?

      Thomas · 16/05/2016 at 15:40

      Hopper maybe but is very expensive

        Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 15:56

        MacPherson seems a must have for 100k, much like Josh Smith was. lack of midfield rookies so get them while you can.

          Thomas · 16/05/2016 at 16:10

          Who do I go without, Pendles or Priddis

            Thomas · 16/05/2016 at 16:31

            Plus MacPherson JS

Davonaise · 16/05/2016 at 15:28

My season has derailed

Not much I can do now…pretty much hit every bloody bastard injury and copped a few rested players to add to it along with "premiums" yeah right

See what happens next year

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 16/05/2016 at 16:46

    Same I look at my team below and think on paper doesn't look too bad but injuries have cut deep this year. When I wanted the rooks to score they haven't but when sitting on the bench they have mooed.

    Def: shaw, laird, Houli, longeran, dbj, Adams (amt, ruggles)
    Mid: danger, Ablett, priddus, gray, Parker, sheil, duncan, petrecca. (Davis, Smith, dunkley)
    Ruck: nic nat, gawn (wyatt)
    Fwd: dusty, montagna, wingard, hall, wells, kerridge. (Mendapoo, rook)

    Next two weeks trade in zorko for kerridge and a premo Def for longeran/Adams.

    Started with the port boys so gonna finish with them now.

    I think team is not bad bUT failed to score over 2200 last 4 weeks due to injuries.

Ryan · 16/05/2016 at 15:29

Definitely Doing
McCarthy to Montagna

Want to bring Priddis in – trade out M. Brown or M. Adams? Whoever stays will be going next week

    hedski · 16/05/2016 at 15:57

    I read that adams may be out for another week yet. Not sure if that changes anything for you tho?

      Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 16:07

      Where'd you read that? An article on the western bulldogs website says this………

      "First-year defender Marcus Adams is expected to return for the clash against the Giants, after missing the win over the Demons with a finger injury."

      That was posted yesterday.

        hedski · 16/05/2016 at 16:49

        HS barometer today.

          Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 16:57


    Leeds17 · 16/05/2016 at 17:20

    Thinking about Montagna myself, like that he's played every game so far even one half injured, a little worried he'll have a rest at some point

james · 16/05/2016 at 15:35

My team is

Shaw Enright Houli Laird AMT DBJ (Ruggles Byrne)

Dangerfield Hannebery Ablett ward Shiel priddis Zieball Petracca ( Hewett Davis Gresham)

Gawn Nic Nat (lorensch)

Hall Martin Wells De goey Benken Kerridge (Menadue non playing rookie)

Was thinking of going Davis or Gresham to macpherson then trading Kerridge to Any premo Mid

Thoughts community

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 16:08

    If Davis isn't named again then you may as well trade him to MacPherson. At least Gresham seems to be getting games……………

    jezzahill · 17/05/2016 at 11:10

    May as well keep Gresham if he's on the park every week.

tuxCS · 16/05/2016 at 15:56

2167 this week.
I'm wondering if i should trade Gresham to MacPherson or Hopper. Macpherson will make money but Hopper could potentially have an average of 90+, and would make very good bench cover.

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 16:04

    Why not both? Mac this week, hopper next.

      tuxCS · 16/05/2016 at 16:07

      Only players I can trade next week are Smith and Keays.

    SCaddict · 16/05/2016 at 18:43

    We will get another look at Hopper before he's on the bubble. Let's face it the Suns aren't exactly the benchmark in resistance right now with all their outs.

    If he only manages say 50 or 60 against the Doggies that will probably change the thinking for a nearly $200K rookie. You wouldn't want to be stuck with another Clayton Oliver who is in and out of the team and hasn't even made $100K yet as that would be somewhat of a wasted trade.

    It was an impressive debut though and if he repeats with a similar performance next weekend there will be plenty of interest then.

    Heaps of coaches will be snapping up Macpherson as the premier bubble boy this week. And with all the Suns injury woes and his solid performances so far that surely his JS is decent right now.

      tuxCS · 16/05/2016 at 18:48

      The only issue is that I have nobody to trade out for hopper next week. My other two midfield bench players are keays and Smith

        SCaddict · 16/05/2016 at 19:21

        Well I'd go the drastically cheaper option in MacPherson myself but you have to make your own call.

        Besides who knows what next week brings, a fresh injury, a surprise omission (like Barlow last week) or a bolt out of the blue – who could say.

        Just when you think you've got a handle on things the Supercoach gods let you know who's really in charge! Just ask the owner of JR Brumby FC this week after flying up the rankings the week before. 😉

    Lachie · 16/05/2016 at 20:43

    Hopper will not average 90+ lmao

      Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 21:12

      He is a gun player just not as well known as rookies like petracca.

      He's every chance of averaging 75+ but probably not 90+.

      This week against the dogs will be a really good test, if he can get 20+ touches I'll probably lock him in.

      tuxCS · 16/05/2016 at 22:03

      I'm not sure if you understand the word "potentially", if not, here's a helpful link! Best of luck 🙂 http://www.dictionary.com/browse/potentially

        Dean · 16/05/2016 at 22:43

        tuxCS he "potentially" could average 120 also, don't get so damn offensive ya cry baby.

        However realistically he will average around 75 to 80 tops I would imagine anything above that will be a huge bonus.

          tuxCS · 16/05/2016 at 22:50

          He's been commenting on almost everything I say, always being negative.

    Jim · 16/05/2016 at 21:11

    I like the thought process tux, nice to be planing your bench cover for the end of the year. If you have Libba in your team you might already have that piece in place. MacPherson for me this week for the cash and Libba will be my M9 when all is done and dusted.

      Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 21:23

      Libbe will probably be better than your M7/M8 anyway lol

      19 tackles! Libbe's back!

        Jim · 16/05/2016 at 22:02

        Hope you're right Southern, if he can get back to his 2014 form it will save me a trade. If he maintains his current average I'll be bringing in another mid, hopefully without having to trade Libba……hopefully!

          Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 23:11

          Yep 106 average 2013 and 110 in 2014, I'm hoping he can stay in all year.

Mac · 16/05/2016 at 16:03

Matty Boyd offered 1 week.

Alex · 16/05/2016 at 16:10

Shaw//Simpson//Bartel//Laird//AMT//DBJ//Ruggles// M BROWN
Danger//Parker//Pendles//Ablett//Selwood//Libba//Ben Ken//JSmith//Dunkley//KERRIDGE//Gresham


I'm ranked 48 any advice, ideas or tips? Cheers

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 16:27

    Not Boyd this week, suspended.

    Danners · 16/05/2016 at 19:38

    Boyd is out, so maybe M BROWN TO RANCE or MCVEIGH if you feel like taking a risk

Cattery · 16/05/2016 at 16:10

Def: shaw, docherty, mcdonald-tipingwuti, byrne-jones, hartley, ruggles (laird, weitering)

Mid: dangerfield, pendles, parker, ward, ablett, blicavs, libba, parish (smith, davis, keays)

Ruck: Gawn, Nic Nat (Cox)

Forward: Barlow, Franklin, Hall, Kerridge, Brown, Petracca (Wright, McCarthy)

116.1k in the bank, 20 trades left.

Looking for an upgrade in defense or forward line. Maybe Zorko, any advice?

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 16:26

    Honestly when I look at your team I don't know what to do with it. You need to generate cash so trading in MacPherson seems logical but who for?

    Weitering is going to miss 3 weeks and then come back with a 114 BE that is a large blunder keeping him in my opinion. You have no mid/fwd swing making trading him difficult.

    Peter Wright, he's not alright. Alarm bells should've rang when he scored that 34. Awful trade.

    I suppose you have to cull Parish>MacP

    Then you can get Zorko for McCarthy.

      Cattery · 16/05/2016 at 17:02

      Agreed mate, p wright worst trade ive made. Cheers for the advice!

    Jizzo · 16/05/2016 at 18:51

    Maybe trade Davis down to Macpherson then weitering to a premo?

    Lachie · 16/05/2016 at 19:21

    You need another defender mate. Look at getting Boyd or Simpson this week maybe. Then Zorko or something in byes. Pretty much what I'm doing.

I N Pieman · 16/05/2016 at 16:15

Matty Boyd suspended for a week. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Mike · 16/05/2016 at 16:31

For once my team had a good week . Have had a miserable season . But put together 2333 this week . Weekly rank of 119 . . Straight away upgraded kerridge to dahlhaus 18 trades left 5 more upgrades for a full premi team . Hopefully the sign of good things ahead

Rick · 16/05/2016 at 16:46

Are Menadue to Macpherson via Kenno and then Kenno/kerridge to priddis good trades for this week?

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 18:05

    I'd keep Kennedy and Kerridge.

    breakevens · 16/05/2016 at 20:19

    Wait one week for Hooper

Duncan · 16/05/2016 at 16:53

What to do with Kolodjasnij? Time to cut our losses and bring in actual premo or hold and hope his form improves?

    tuxCS · 16/05/2016 at 17:42

    Im holding Duncan.

      Duncan · 16/05/2016 at 17:50

      He's definitely killing his owners atm 🙁

      Gold Coast being so bad is also affecting his scoring

        tuxCS · 16/05/2016 at 17:53

        Yeah, GC draw doesnt get any lighter until round 12 where they play richmond.

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 18:04

    He's very young and had a cracking year in his second season averaging 90.

    Was always risky and doubt he's going to suddenly pump out big scores.

      Duncan · 16/05/2016 at 18:13

      Kade Coming from the same hometown as myself influenced my decision to start him majorly.

        Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 18:29

        Play with your head and sometimes your gut but never with your heart 😉

          Duncan · 16/05/2016 at 18:39

          Haha next year's the year.

    breakevens · 16/05/2016 at 20:19

    Depends what your structure looks like but I would hold for one more week then if he doesn't perform DPP for Jacob Hooper

      Duncan · 16/05/2016 at 21:39

      Could definitely be an option as i already have Bartel sitting in the Mids.

    Juzzy · 16/05/2016 at 21:21

    As much as he is hurting you Duncan I think you have to hold.
    Maybe focus on upgrading your rookies before you worry about KK.
    He is a walk up start every week and has the proven potential to score tons. That can't be said for many of our rooks.

      Duncan · 16/05/2016 at 21:38

      Very true, Papley and Brown are biggers trade out priorities this week anyway.

Kev · 16/05/2016 at 16:58

Menadue has made 18k since round 4…

    tuxCS · 16/05/2016 at 17:42

    What a champ

    hedski · 16/05/2016 at 18:58

    He's mooed his last moo

    SCaddict · 16/05/2016 at 19:15

    Well I guess we should be thankful for that and that he hasn't lost money yet. I culled the bastard last week so he's someone else's problem now.

    Juzzy · 16/05/2016 at 21:49

    Does that mean if I hold him for 3 more weeks I can bank on another 18k ??
    Might have to hold so I can do a straight swap for Dawson.

      The Ranger · 16/05/2016 at 22:22

      Nice planning Juzzy

Campbell · 16/05/2016 at 17:13

Plz tell me who to trade with 18 and 3k
Shaw Rance Houli Yeo Byrne-jones McDonald-Tipungwuti // Adams Broad
Selwood Ablett Parker RGray Shiel Liberatore Parish Smith // Keays Macaffer Schoenfeld
Gawn Martin // Cox
Montagna DMartin Franklin Hall Kerridge BKennedy // Wells Petracca

    Cam_H · 16/05/2016 at 19:59

    Not telling you what to do, but I'd consider painting the fence;

    Marcus Adams + Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti for Sam Docherty and Kaiden Brand – however if you're concerned with the Round 13 bye, then maybe Jimmy Bartell instead of Docherty.

    Big testicular fortitude – calling Aaron Hall a 'not top six Forward' (as he's bleeding cash all over the shop) … but if so …

    Darcy Parish + Aaron Hall for Benjamin Crocker and Luke Dahlhaus or Dane Zorko – bear in mind Round 14 bye with the Bullies. Gives you a Fwd-Mid swing (finally!) and $100,000+.

    Another approach is to save one trade and get some cash by going Joshua Schoenfeld to Darcy MacPherson, or if you think that Darcy Parish has topped out, then Darcy Parish might be culled for Darcy MacPherson. Alternately, while not promising as a significant rise in value as MacPherson, Benjamin Crocker does give you the sorely needed Midfield positioned Fwd-Mid eligibility if you wanted to go with either Parish or Schoenfeld to Crocker.

    Hopefully this is of some help. Best of luck with whatever you decide.

Nico · 16/05/2016 at 17:13

Hey community, is zac williams worth picking up. Looking to upgrade weitering but not much money in the chest. Thoughts?

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 18:02

    Not going to be a top defender, lock premos or rookies.

      Kev · 16/05/2016 at 19:19

      Agree SS. Although the gap between your top defenders and serviceable defenders is a lot less than it is in other positions

Jizzo · 16/05/2016 at 17:24

With 22 trades and 166k in the bank team currently looks like this:

Shaw, Gibbo, Bartel, Smith!, Adams, Tippa (DBJ, Brown)
Danger, Ablett, Ward, Parker, Barlow, libba, Kerridge, Mills (smith, menapoo, Dunkley)
Nic Nat, Martin
Hall, Zorko, Martin, wells, bken, papely (petracca, McGovern)
Thinking of going mills and menapoo to Priddis and Macpherson but not really sure if this is the right move. Appreciate any thoughts community

    Jizzo · 16/05/2016 at 17:26

    Also thinking of maybe getting rid of papely and getting doc in through dpp

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 18:01

    Like the trades, if you want Docherty then now would be the time as he'll go up in price more than Priddis this week.

    Doch BE 37

    Priddis BE 100

      Jizzo · 16/05/2016 at 18:46

      Thanks southern yeah might go with the docherty trade now

Jack · 16/05/2016 at 17:25

Should I trade M. Brown to Docherty? even if i Have K simpson

Also what should i do with rockliff????

Thanks community

    tuxCS · 16/05/2016 at 17:43

    Rockliff should be a trade, you've held him through injury once already, It's time to cut our losses with the Rockliff, look at him next year.

    Neverweaken · 16/05/2016 at 17:49

    Yes. I have Docherty and looking to fit in Simpson. Especially for round 14.

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 17:59

    Why'd you hold Rockliff last week if you're going to now trade him out?

    Danners · 16/05/2016 at 19:36

    Big risk, Carlton aren't the best team in the AFL and have had an easy run the last few games. When they play bad, look out…

    Steeeve · 16/05/2016 at 20:29

    Hold Rockliff, he is your pod now

Luke · 16/05/2016 at 17:41

Big Decisions this week community I need your help!! I'm thinking two upgrades I have come up with two choices. Zorko and Bartel OR Z.Merrett/Waite and K. Simpson??

    Luke · 16/05/2016 at 17:44

    I'm unsure on Bartel a bit up and down

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 18:14

    Simpson probably the safer choice but looking at history Bartel has a higher ceiling.

    Would take Merrett over Waite. Zorko is a solid option though too.

Neverweaken · 16/05/2016 at 17:48

What to do with wells. Is he a keeper? If not should I offload him soon as he probably won't make to much more cash?

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 17:56

    Has 5 scores between 90-122. One low score of 80.

    Has one low score of 66 in which he missed a quarter of football due to a corked quad.

    68 BE.

    I'm surprised you are considering moving him on.

      tuxCS · 16/05/2016 at 17:57

      Pretty much exactly what i would've said.

      Neverweaken · 16/05/2016 at 20:02

      Just feel he has made the money. Regardless of BE I don't see him making much more. And need the cash to switch him to full premo. Just thinking

    Ted · 16/05/2016 at 17:59

    I wouldn't trade out Wells. He had one bad game because he got a leg quark in the game. He has a BE of 71 which is very reachable. He's scored 99, 121, 90, 98, 80, 122 and the 66 because he got injured. I think you might be jumping the gun?


    Nicholas · 16/05/2016 at 18:51

    Keeper for mine if you have enough trades trade him away last

    Derek · 16/05/2016 at 19:18

    Everyone has Wells, for good reason. But getting rid of him now before everyone else might be a good Shark Move.

    I'm looking at Wells to Montagna as a big POD

Bamb · 16/05/2016 at 18:00

What to do with Brodie Smith. I wanna trade Adams down to Keays or Macpherson (Keays works better with bye structure but Macpherson is cheaper) but that doesn't give me enough cash to upgrade Smith to a big premo now that he's dropped so much in value.
Double downgrade or is there a cheap premo I should be looking at?

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 18:18

    Boat has sailed on Keays.

    Adams will play this week.

      Houli….risk it to get the biscuit

    JamiesNinjas13 · 17/05/2016 at 10:24

    No point trading out smith now, you won't get much for him, be patient, he will hit form again. The minute you trade him out, he will score 144 that round, it always happens.

      Bamb · 17/05/2016 at 10:52

      Well I gotta upgrade someone. Between him, Yeo and Wingard, I feel the latter two have more potential.

marcus · 16/05/2016 at 18:03

ranked 501 and got 19 trades left… should I trade birchall to Gibson and hold my other trade, or trade brown to either macpherson or hopper and upgrade another rookie like benken to zorko

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 18:22

    Benken projected to go up 20k this week. (BE 32)

    Gibson is a bit up and down but still a good choice, not sure about that trade though. But you have to go with your gut on how you are going to maintain or go up ranks.

    I'd choose someone else personally. Shaw, Docherty and Simpson seem the best at this point.

    Could do Brown to MacPherson just for the cash generation.

      annoying old lady · 16/05/2016 at 18:48

      Well sure, Ben Ken is projected to rise 20k, but Zorko is projected to rise 15k. Lets assume that each of those two players rise their projected increases, you'll have saved a measly $5k and missed out on some vital points considering your rank! I'd certainly go the brown to macpherson and then definitely Zorko for a mid or fwd cash cow.

      Sometimes, you just have to stop counting beans and cash in for points, and I think that the money you will miss out on with BenKen is simply worth the extra point scoring at this stage.

      Agree with Southern S on the Gibson trade. Better, more reliable/consistent options out there (don't forget Laird, but maybe watch that bloke for a week once he comes back, the three listed by Southern S are right on.)

        Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 19:51

        For example people upraded Ben Ken during his scoring slump when he was worth about 290k. They've now missed out on about 45k profit, plus whatever he gains in the following weeks.

        He's had an 89 and 77 the last two weeks and now sits on a 32 BE, he could get to 400k+ if things go well over the next few weeks.

        I see his potential for cash generation as significant. Zorko's projected 14k profit requires a score of 128.

        Zorko is having an amazing season there's no denying it but I'd find someone else to trade would move on Kerridge if I had too, or even Birchall as they suggest, he's a waste of space not gonna profit or be a premo.

    Phil · 16/05/2016 at 18:34

    Can you show us your team, it will aid us to give you better advice

      marcus · 16/05/2016 at 19:12

      sorry I didn't mention that I only have 55k in the bank and I can only afford Gibson.
      my team is
      def: shaw, Docherty, birchall, Hartley, ruggles, byrne-jones (laird, adams)
      mid: Dangerfield, hanners,parker, pendles, selwood, shiel, libba, josh smith (benken, davis, Gresham)
      ruck: gawn natnui
      fwd: merrett, hall, wells, barlow, kerridge, tippa (brown, Menadue)

        marcus · 16/05/2016 at 19:13

        I could trade adams instead of kennedy, that would make more sense

      marcus · 16/05/2016 at 21:37

      got 55k in the bank
      shaw Docherty birchall Hartley byrne jones ruggles (laird, adams)
      danger hanners parker pendles selwood shiel libba josh smith ( ben ken davis Gresham)
      gawn natnui
      merrett hall barlow kerridge wells tippa (brown, menadue

    Danners · 16/05/2016 at 19:35

    All I'm going to say is don't be an idiot. Brown to MacPherson sounds good though

    The Mountain · 17/05/2016 at 10:35

    I'd go brown to McPherson and Adams to Simpson or Zorko via dpp

John · 16/05/2016 at 18:34

Hey ommunity.

I want to get Rid of KK and i was thinking to use DPP so i can now get my final midfielder. I have 649K to get my final midfielder but i want to save around 70K.

My current midfield is ( danger, GAJ, Parker, Pendels, Ward, Cripps, Libba ( new player) ( macpherson, smith and Davis)


    Boltons Blues · 16/05/2016 at 18:40

    Shiel or Batman Sloane if you want to save money, Hanners if you dont or the fallen premo in Matty Priddas looks to be hitting some form

azza · 16/05/2016 at 18:41

hey community team is:

Def: shaw, simpson, rance, LAIRD, amt, dbj (ruggles, hartley)
Mids: Danger, hannerz, parker, gaz, shiel, libba, bkennedy, petracca (smith,hewett,davis)
Ruck: Stefan, gawn (wyatt)
Fwds: dusty, zorko, barlow,hall,wells,kerridge (brown,papley)

have 3 options this week –
1) downgrade a rookie to macpherson and upgrade amt to docherty/gibson/bartel
2) downgrade a papley to macpherson and upgrade brown to priddis
3) bring in macpherson and hold

conflicted between bringing in a def to cover for laird this week with bringing in priddis (not 100% sold on him yet)
any help will be appreciated

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 21:00

    You have two spots left in your defense if you are dead set on Docherty being one of them probably move on him now with option 1.

    Although I would move Brown before AMT can you afford it?

    Option 3 also looks ok, could wait on Priddis for another week then again with only a 100 BE and a 120+ behind him he shouldn't drop in price.

    I'm still not quite convinced by Priddis he's had some crap scores even with a good amount of possessions this year.

Campbell · 16/05/2016 at 18:43

Plz tell me who to trade with 18 trades and 3k
Shaw Rance Houli Yeo Byrne-jones McDonald-Tipungwuti // Adams Broad
Selwood Ablett Parker RGray Shiel Liberatore Parish Smith // Keays Macaffer Schoenfeld
Gawn Martin // Cox
Montagna DMartin Franklin Hall Kerridge BKennedy // Wells Petracca
As I said no idea on who to trade so I want ur thoughts community

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 20:27

    Corrective trades were required early……..there's so much deadweight on your benches yet you've used so many trades.

    Three woeful picks in Broad, Macaffer and Shoenfeld have crippled your team for the season, obviously Houli and Yeo stinking up the backline hasn't helped either but that is just bad luck.

    The upside is you are fielding a decent team but you're going to fall away because of overall team value.

    I'd get MacPherson into your team for some profit, I suppose you could trade Macaffer or Schoen out but it's not going to generate any cash for an upgrade.


    Cam_H · 16/05/2016 at 20:30

    ^ Asked and answered (from me at least) several posts above. Options may include one of;

    Consider fence-paint with the backline.
    Consider if Parish should be culled.
    Consider if trading out non-playing rookie for bubble-boy is worth the trade.

Nicholas · 16/05/2016 at 18:50

Not sure what to do with my team not looking too good.
Shaw, Bartel, Laird, Rich, Smith, DBJ, Hartley, Brown
Dangerfield, Selwood, Parker, Ablett, Wines, Gray, Libba, Smith, Petracca, Kennedy, Menadue,
Gawn, Naitanui, Cox
Martin, Barlow, Hall, Wells, Kerridge, Tippa, Papley, McCarthy
18 trades and 65.7k

Obviously McCarthy has to go if he plays and I am not sure what to do with Brodie Smith. Rich is obviously fine for now since I have bigger problems. Would like to get Priddis in this week or the next. Zorko and Dahlaus are also on my hit list. Maybe I should try fix up my backline with more consistent scorers but not sure how. What should be my priority this week?

Really need some help here community

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 20:04

    Smith out, Tippa back, Tracca/menadue forward. Trade in macpherson.

    McCarthy/Menadue out (forwardline)

    Zorko in.

    or leave menadue in the mids on the first trade and go menadue>priddis/menadue>pendlebury

      Nicholas · 17/05/2016 at 14:02

      Thanks for the advice mate, I think I might hold onto Smith due to my limited amount of trades but mccarthy to macpherson is looking good!!!

Lucid · 16/05/2016 at 19:24

Hey community. Think I'm going to run out of trades. Currently 14.
As it sits.

Shaw, Boyd, Bartel, DBJ, Dea, Mohr, O McDonald, Collins,
Danger, Hannebury, Parker, Zorko, Gaz, Martin,Libba, Keays, Hopper, Smith, McPherson,
Gawn, Nic Nat, Cox,
White, Kennedy, Hall, Wells, Stringer, Kerridge, Papley, Patracca.

Traded in Zorko/Hopper from R Davis/Gresham.

Feeling I should hold trades until forced ATM.

Sitting in top 4% at 9671 rank this week overall.

Any thoughts or advice will be greatly appreciated.

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 20:01

    Surely that's Waite not White?

    Tim Mohr? Surely another typo? lol

      Ted · 16/05/2016 at 22:06

      Shut up you skippy turd Southern S you FAH! You are so negative you dck!

        50_Shades · 17/05/2016 at 11:16

        Ted 2 huh…

        Agree Lucid, you really need to be careful with your trades from hereon.
        Looks like you need another 4 premiums minimum which could cost you 8 trades, so not many left for injuries and other issues.

    Tommo · 17/05/2016 at 11:00

    14 trades left!?!?!?!?! With byes and injuries, you are really going to struggle man. I would aim to not trade at all until byes, your gonna have to trades then.

      Lucid · 17/05/2016 at 14:51

      Yep I know I've burned trades like hot cakes.

      Either forced or rookie ready to cash in on. Praying I don't have a year like last.

      Waite NM and Mohr GWS. Autocorrect is a pain lol.

      Thanks all.

      Thanks all.

Boltons blues · 16/05/2016 at 19:25

Gold Coast taking Abletts concussion very serious, could miss this week

    Danners · 16/05/2016 at 19:33

    Indeed, seems like he is already battered and bruised so it might help him having a break

      Lucid · 16/05/2016 at 19:44

      We can hope. Would love to see him back to his best.

    SCaddict · 16/05/2016 at 19:39

    A week off may not be the worst thing in the world as he is niggle city right now. I say this as a Gaz owner.

    Every weekend I'm half expecting him to collapse in a miserable heap so I've already allocated a provisional trade there for whenever that happens, if it does.

    So if missing a week helps reduce that risk a little I'd be somewhat ok with that.

Thomas · 16/05/2016 at 19:30

M.Crouch and Kerridge for

Priddis and Pendles
Priddis and MacPherson

Please help!!!! My midfield only has 4 premos so i need them in but don't want to miss out on MacPherson

    Danners · 16/05/2016 at 19:33

    Pendles and MacPherson, could wait a week for Priddis

      Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 20:41

      Agree. Especially with rookie stocks running dry.

    The Mountain · 16/05/2016 at 20:39

    Option 1 mate, your aiming to be full premo so bring 2 in if you can

Michael C. · 16/05/2016 at 19:48

Hi gang. Does it make a difference to trading M. Brown when we see his next three opponents: StKilda, Richmond Fremantle?

    Ted · 16/05/2016 at 19:53

    I'm holding him his BE is 55 which I think he can meet or break easily against those 3?

      Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 20:41

      Holding, bigger fish to fry.

Ted · 16/05/2016 at 20:02

Picking a C this week is going to be a bitch

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 20:29

    Hanners vice.

    Pendle/Danger captain.

    Easy for me!

    Steeeve · 16/05/2016 at 20:31

        The Ranger · 16/05/2016 at 21:40

        Er… I did the week before last and it worked out quite well.

Stevo · 16/05/2016 at 20:04

Rage trade button going to be belted this week.
Gawn captain cost me 2 X league losses – never again Max.

Too many trades to consider – Menadue, Brown, Gresham, and what to do with Ablett?

Do I go for Docherty or Sloane?

    The Mountain · 16/05/2016 at 20:37

    Dont trade either ablett or gawn mate. If you can downgrade menaspud and upgrade brown doc or simpson or laird

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 20:54

    Doch this week with a 37 BE and Sloane next week shouldn't increase too much with a 100-ish BE.

Eric_the_Red · 16/05/2016 at 20:08

Gresham > Macpherson
De Goey > Dusty or Priddis??

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 21:21

    Trading De Goey after he gets a 109?

    Only has a BE of 53, then again playing Geelong so might be all he gets lol

SC16 · 16/05/2016 at 20:24

which player should i trade in?

    SC16 · 16/05/2016 at 20:26

    and merret

      Lachie · 16/05/2016 at 20:35


    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 20:38

    So is your forwardline going to have Dusty, Buddy, Waite, Montagna and Dahl in it by the end of the year? or are you asking people to pick your team for you?

      Ted · 16/05/2016 at 20:41

      Thinking he's asking for advice? If he was asking to pick his team, I think he would have said pick my team Southern S.

        Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 20:52

        lol what I was getting at is which of those forwards do they really want in their final squad.

        Then just go for the one this week with the lowest BE and good upcoming draw.

        Then it gets them to think about who they want and work out how many of them they can actually fit in their team, and maybe they could think about the byes too.

        Then they are actually being a coach, and not just picking who the most people say is their favourite player……………

        So essentially they were asking us to pick their team.

          SC16 · 16/05/2016 at 20:57

          you're a special one aren't you southern s?

            Ted · 16/05/2016 at 21:21

            Yeah he thinks he real special! Keep riding the short bus

              SC16 · 16/05/2016 at 21:36

              he's got nothing better to do

        SC16 · 16/05/2016 at 20:54

        thanks ted and lachie, at least the website isn't full of geniuses like southern s, if you go back to my comment i wrote, which player should i pick, now southern s, do you understand what that means or do you want me to sound it out for you? ill even sound it out syllable by syllable for you

    Ted · 16/05/2016 at 20:47

    Zorko if you dont have him?

      SC16 · 16/05/2016 at 20:56

      cheers already got zorko, thinking of merret or maybe martin

        Ted · 16/05/2016 at 21:30

        Figured because you didnt mention him.

        Cheers mate good luck

          SC16 · 16/05/2016 at 21:36

          cheers ted and good luck with your team mate!

    Juzzy · 16/05/2016 at 21:39

    Hi SC16.

    Depends . If you need to fix you fwd line I would go Dusty or Dahl (not sold on Merret).
    If your backline needs some repairs then Doch aint gonna get any cheaper.

    P.S. Go easy on Southern guys. He has taken the time to post some very insightful/helpful stuff on this forum.

      Ted · 16/05/2016 at 22:10

      No he hasn't hes a a fing turn that belittles people fck that fggt! he's an arse hole!

        Ted · 16/05/2016 at 22:13

        He's a egotistical self centered narcissist fcking fggt! Who thinks he's a know it all and be little's people who just ask for advice fck him!

          50_Shades · 17/05/2016 at 00:33

          Ted, you sound like a cute little bear I've seen at the movies. The one with the potty mouth who spent a little too much time high as a kite.
          You need to chill before an eye pops out…

          Anyway, I can see Southerns point to an extent, it was a lot of names to list. If you want the best feedback you need to show what your thoughts, priorities are too.

          We're not here to do your research for you and with a list like that and no other context, do you really think people will respond with valuable and complete feedback?

            Tommo · 17/05/2016 at 11:05

            I completely agree, he pretty much just named the best forwards and asked us to pick, essentially picking his team for him. Narrow down the options to a few. You guys are being idiots by just abusing Southern. Southern is one of the better posters in the community and the way you 2 are reacting is unwarranted and undeserved. You are just trying to get attention and it makes you look like knobs.

              SC16 · 17/05/2016 at 17:57

              You're just as special aren't you?

Danners · 16/05/2016 at 20:26

A bit curious why everyone is going on the Priddis bandwagon this week. Still has a 100 breakeven and has only averaged 84 against Port (does include a injury affected score of 5) and only 3 100s in 8 games. Does have favourable fixtures coming up though. Should wait a week though. Thoughts?

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 20:36

    I'm waiting a week for sure.

    Those planning on getting Pendlebury, Docherty, Zorko, Merrett, Franklin etc should probably get them first.

    Especially Pendles and Docherty on a 63 BE and 37 BE respectively.

    Ted · 16/05/2016 at 20:38

    I'm waiting til bye's think he will be in better form and less cash?

    JamiesNinjas13 · 17/05/2016 at 10:41

    He hasn't been that big out of form to be honest, people look at his past score and have the view that if his supercoach output is low, it instantly makes them think they are playing injured/out of form. In most cases the scores do reflect on how they are playing. But if you look at all his stats, barring a couple, he has been getting high 20s in disposals, 6 tackles and 5 inside 50s per game with good contested possession numbers. What's hurting his scores is the clangers (inside mids cant help it) and handballs (priddis has always been a handball king). Maybe that injury did affect him, but it didn't really hurt him stat wise. Therefore this week or next, I think it doesnt really matter when you bring him in because <500k is an absolute steal.

      Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 11:48

      Agreed his stats are fine other than the DE, I'm just waiting a week because I have other targets with lower BE's.

Zeeva · 16/05/2016 at 20:30

Hewett and KK Out for Macpherson and Docherty?

Steeeve · 16/05/2016 at 21:06

Something to consider for those looking to potentially trade Ben Kennedy or Sam Kerridge. Kennedy has two easy games coming up and a lower breakeven. Kerridge has the top two sides coming up plus a higher breakeven.

If you're thinking one won't be in your side in another couple of weeks time anyway, I'd lean toward trading Kerridge now.

Of course you could do a lot worse than to carry Kerridge through to your byes. Just a thought.

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 21:19

    Good points, although Carlton does have Brisbane and the Saints the following two weeks leading into the bye.

    But yes if wanting to trade one of them then Kerridge for sure, 70 BE and as you say the top two teams coming up.

      Steeeve · 16/05/2016 at 21:34

      If Kerridge loses value for two straight weeks very few will hang onto him for the Lions and Saints. I'm starting to talk myself into flicking him actually, even though it breaks the old rule of never slaughtering a cow whose average exceeds break even.
      Will all depend whether I rate Macpherson to gain decent cash. JS is shaky for mine.

        Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 21:39

        Yep if you keep Kerridge for the next two you may as well keep till the byes. You've almost talked me into trading him too lol, but I have bigger fish to fry this week anyway. Will probably hang on to him into the byes as carlton are in bye week one anyway.

        Suns have injuries and lack pressure, I feel like MacPherson has JS just on his tackling count alone although I didn't see the games and not sure exactly how those tackles came about.

        if we don't lock in MacPherson who do we lock in though that is question, rookie stocks are low and many cows are fat. (or at least chubby-ish and not going to grow any more)

          Steeeve · 16/05/2016 at 22:08

          Exactly. No point keeping all the cows because you can only cull two at once (three in the byes). Hopper has another big game and I'll want to bring him in next week, plus Priddis is ripe for the picking.

    Tom · 16/05/2016 at 22:03

    if you reckon kerridge will keep his average around 70-80 up until the byes id hold on to him

      Steeeve · 16/05/2016 at 23:01

      Precisely. With the top two teams coming up, and Kruezer out limiting potential touches around the packs, I'm not sure he can keep up a 70 average.

        Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 23:07

        That factor is hugely significant!

Adamant · 16/05/2016 at 21:09

Where on SuperCoach app does it show your byes breakdown? I'm buggered if I can find it!

    Neverweaken · 16/05/2016 at 21:15

    On the little graph icon down the bottom right. Takes you to the page for projections reversals and byes

      Adamant · 18/05/2016 at 20:31

      It just says reversals, clear emergencies and projections for me?

David T · 16/05/2016 at 21:23

Shaw, Gibson, Rich, Laird, Adams, DBJ (AMT, Brown)

Danger, Pendles, Ablett, Libba, Priddis, Rockliff, De Goey, B. Kennedy (J. Smith, Hewett, Petracca)

Nic Nat, Goldstein (Grimley)

Zerrett, Hall, Zorko, Barlow, Wells, Kerridge (Cox, Menapoo)

21 Trades — $80,100

This week's trades:
Papley >>> Zorko
McCarthy >>> Merrett

Think these two have a very good chance of being in the top 8 forwards at least. Zorko is in irresistible form, seems to suit my bye structure at this stage and has a great run from here on after a tough start which didn't seem to phase him.

Merrett isn't in too many teams and was cheaper than the other 2nd Bye Round forwards such as Franklin or Dahlhaus. Think he is great value and even last year hardly dropped below 20 possessions and didn't score below 70~ in SC. Underrated. Bombers also have an overall better run than Dogs or Swans.

What do you guys think? Looking to add Gray, Selwood and Hopper over the next few weeks.

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 21:35

    Great trades, Future plans look ok but I'm not sure if Gray and Selwood are going to find their way into my midfield this year (strange as that sounds)

    At the start of the year I would've thought Gray for sure, but I dunno. That terrible run he had, then the injury………………

    Selwood's only big score against a good team was vs Westcoast at SS and we all know how they travel. Maybe I'm being harsh on Joel but still not 100% convinced.

    69 vs the crows is a little worrying wouldn't you say?

      David T · 16/05/2016 at 21:51

      I think every player is capable of a few turds throughout the season. Selwood is a consistent 110+ average and he'll be playing in a winning, contending team throughout the year. Likewise for Gray, the Power's form seems to be turning a little bit and he should only help with that. Tipped him to improve this year and was looking like doing that early, and I'm licking my lips at the prospect of getting him for ~500k in two weeks time. Straight swap from De Goey/Kerridge hopefully (with that 80k in the bank).

      Hard to pick the top mids this year though. Hannebery will be the other I'm looking to bring in. Considering SMitchell/Ward as they are also falling in price. Just don't see how you can beat Gray for value though.

        Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 22:00

        I can't believe I'm saying I won't have Gray in my team, might have to go look at myself int he mirror while I say it.

          David T · 16/05/2016 at 22:04

          Could be the POD that puts you in front of the pack when everyone trades in Gray bar you and he re-injures himself or plays like a skippy turd 😉

      Jim · 16/05/2016 at 22:21

      Joel going great this year, but last weeks score could be the first of a run. Scored over 140 five times last year but slumped between rounds 9 and 17, price dropping below 500k. Can go big, but also inconsistent. Only a watch for me at this stage.

        Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 23:05

        That's where I am with him, after last year and a lot of 80 type scores there's just that bit of doubt in my mind.

        David makes a very valid point about Geelong being a winning, contending team (flag favourites at the moment?)

        It's not that he's going to fall flat but at this stage I really want to lock in the top 6 or so mids.

          David T · 17/05/2016 at 09:31

          If you wouldn't mind, who are your tips for the top 6-8 mids Southern?

            Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 11:46

            Danger, Hanners, Pendles, Parker, Ward, Ablett.

            I still think Priddis could be there and possibly people like Selwood, Lachie Neale, Zaharakis, JPK, Sloane and even Patrick Cripps or Viney.

            Obviously left Zorko and any other mid/fwd's out.

JJJ · 16/05/2016 at 21:30

What's the bet Waynos hot tip is Michael Walters for the forward line this week.. Bloke is tearing it up consistently he is cheap and almost guaranteed to play in the mid with Fyfe, Bennel, and now Hill gone.

Jordan · 16/05/2016 at 21:44

(TL:DR at the bottom)

Alright community, I have another dilemma this week.

As my team stands now, I have a full premium midfield playing, bar one rookie player who i've been rotating through my bench, this week I'm playing Josh Smith. My forward line is practically done with Wells, Kerridge, and BenKen, who have a less that preferable average. However my backline is the weakest point. I currently have;

H.Shaw, K.Simpson, M.Adams, R.Laird, AMT, DBJ, M.Brown, and M.Hartley.

I have one definite trade in, Mitch Brown to Sam Docherty, but the other trade i need to either downgrade or slightly upgrade.
After the Docherty trade, I will have $132,400 in the bank, which i could trade;

Adams to J.Gibson

or I could trade, Menadue to Tom Lee (if he's named) which would leave me with $236,200 in the bank for an upgrade next week,
or a trade of, Hewett to Darcy Mac, and have $274,800 left for an upgrade next week.

Thanks in advance 🙂


definite trade of Mitch Brown to Docherty
and then either, Marcus Adams to Josh Gibson (with like 4.9k left),
Menadue to Tom Lee (through DPP [with 236k left]) or,
George Hewett to Darcy Mac (with 274k left).

    Jordan · 16/05/2016 at 21:53

    or hold on a second trade and see how everything pans out this week…

      David T · 17/05/2016 at 09:57

      I wouldn't call Kerridge or Kennedy keepers… Wells could be a F5-7 if we are lucky, so he'd be the last upgrade I'd be looking at in my forward line.

      Merrett looks like a good option in the forward line if you have the cash and think he'll be a top 6-8.

      Likewise Bartel, Gibson, Rich in the backline. I'd be holding Adams as I think he will form a very useful swing with Tippa as the year goes on so I'll probably look to keep the both of them as long as they're playing. Menadue and Hewett can be held. I'll be holding Hewett until his bye as he isn't likely to lose much money before then and could make coin with one big game.

      Brown >>> Gibson/Bartel
      Kerridge >>> Merrett if possible?

      Papley or McCarthy might be good options to dump for MacPherson if you have them.

Paulie Walnuts · 16/05/2016 at 21:52

Mitch Brown out for another week, Traded him for Boyd last week ,now Boyd's out for a week ,I don't know whether to laugh or cry !

    Tom · 16/05/2016 at 22:00

    might make you feel better to know i traded in JJ, suckling and boyd the weeks before thier injuries/suspensions, maybe im behind the doggies curse :'(

    Steeeve · 16/05/2016 at 22:09

    Brown hasn't been out?
    Do you mean Adams?

jake · 16/05/2016 at 21:53

i have 563k to get a Mid who should i get people?

    Dasha · 16/05/2016 at 21:58

    priddis or wait a few weeks and get robbie gray

      Steeeve · 17/05/2016 at 11:42

      Gray could be under $500k soon. Very tasty, although I will likely already be full premo in my mids before then…

    Jordan · 16/05/2016 at 22:00

    Hold another week and get Luke Parker on the cheap..
    Or if you're desperate this round, Zach Merrett for DPP, Pridda, or Bryce Gibbs

MACCa · 16/05/2016 at 21:55

Rance and 60k
gibson or bartel and 120k

Juzzy · 16/05/2016 at 22:07

Hey Ted,

None of my business but ….

When you come on this forum referring to someone as a " fggt arse hole " and a " skippy turd" it doesn't sit very well with me or, I imagine, a good number of Jocks community.

I wish you luck with your supercoach team this year.

    tuxCS · 16/05/2016 at 22:42

    I also personally think that whilst sometimes kind of "harsh" Southern S does answer a great number of questions on this website, and his contribution is massive.

      Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 23:01

      I'm strongly opinionated and can be rude or condescending at times that I acknowledge.

      I'd like to think that a large majority of my posts are helping people though or contributing to a healthy discussion that leads to us improving our supercoach performance.

        SC16 · 17/05/2016 at 07:56

        you definely can be rude buddy, so i suggest you keep ya smart comments to yourself, all i wanted was to see what other people would pick for an upgrade option, already got a solid team and dont need you to make my whole team

          Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 11:37

          You can't take criticism I get that, not really my problem though.

          You can suggest all you want doesn't mean you'll get what you want, there's ways to avoid getting so upset first one is to grow up.

            Rostheboss · 17/05/2016 at 14:15

            Get a job Southern S. You obviously have nothing else to do except SC.

tuxCS · 16/05/2016 at 22:10

    Great video would recommend to all!!!

      tuxCS · 16/05/2016 at 22:20

      Thanks so much Nicholas, means a lot 🙂

        jockreynolds · 17/05/2016 at 19:49

        Hey!! Just found this – LOVE it mate!

          tuxCS · 17/05/2016 at 19:55

          Wow. I'm really glad you liked it Jock, thanks so much 🙂

    Juzzy · 16/05/2016 at 22:51

    Great vid tux.
    Thanks for taking the time.
    Great fun for a "supercoach tragic" (my girlfriends words) to sit back with a beer and watch on a Monday night.

      tuxCS · 16/05/2016 at 22:54

      Thanks man, as long as it's entertaining, that's all I'm aiming for 🙂

Jordan · 16/05/2016 at 22:52

How is my team looking everyone. I'm feeling pretty good about at the moment because I have at least 18 playing during the bye rounds but have no idea how I will make anymore cash with 15k in the warchest


MID: Parker,pendles,Sam Mitchell,cognilio,liber,side bottom, sloane

Ruck: goldy, mummy

FWD: hall, montagna, zorko, barlow, wells, petracca (cox, menadue)

It like to hear peoples thought on my team
Thanks jordan

    Juzzy · 16/05/2016 at 23:01

    Hi Jordan.
    You will need to list your mid bench if you want cash generation advise.

    Jordan · 16/05/2016 at 23:03

    (Hewett,keays,macpherson) didn't realise I left that out!

      Juzzy · 16/05/2016 at 23:18

      I would hold on trades and see what happens down the track.
      Strong team.
      Brown down to a non playing Collins or the Richmond kid will let you turn DBJ or Hartley into a Premo if you are going for rank.
      Check any non players draw to see if you can loophole them.
      Good Luck.

    Southern S · 16/05/2016 at 23:27

    Team is looking pretty strong, like the PODs too you have a lot of them.

    I'd say you almost have to trade hewett out for macpherson for cash generation.

    Hewett is only projected to go up 7.8k with a 52.

    Considering his last 3 scores are in the 50's it seems safe to say he's not going to score too well from here on.

    Could trade menadue out for Mason redman too but he's just another Menadue honestly and isn't going to profit much with scores of 45 and 38.

      Juzzy · 16/05/2016 at 23:39

      He already has Macpherson.
      Get on point Southern 🙂
      Redman or a speculative pick it is.
      Check the Bulldogs kid in defence. Could be right in Jordans ballpark.

    Nicholas · 17/05/2016 at 00:43

    How many trades left?

james · 16/05/2016 at 22:56

what should i do with Zieball Community i brought him in after his second 120 and since then he has delivved me 2 tonnes and 3 70's in a row, he gets plenty of the ball but just butchers it

    Jordan · 16/05/2016 at 22:59

    Depend what the rest of ur middle is like

Ryan · 17/05/2016 at 00:14

Is Simpson too expensive? Or just get him?

    pitch72 · 17/05/2016 at 07:14

    get him, I did a fortnight ago and he's posted 2 120+ scores, oops, ive probably cursed him now…

      Dee · 17/05/2016 at 12:16

      just get him….

    Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 12:19


Tim · 17/05/2016 at 08:15

Community, is $70k too much to spend to suit your bye structures? Upgrading a forward this week and looking at either Zorko or Merrett. Zorko suits my bye structure much better, but Merrett is a tasty price. Also slightly concerned that I will bring Zorko in on the week that he finally decides to go sub 100. Thoughts?

Dee · 17/05/2016 at 08:39

does anyone know if Houli will be back this week?

    breakevens · 17/05/2016 at 08:47


      Hubba · 17/05/2016 at 22:56

      Just saw 8 -10 weeks for houli …. Ouch ….was really thinking of picking him up cheap in a week or two

Longjohn · 17/05/2016 at 09:00

Anyone know any good rookies in the fwd or def

    Kev · 17/05/2016 at 09:13

    There's not a lot this week, Longjohn. Redman (fwd) and Brand (def) are on the bubble but neither have been great so far.

    Only Macpherson in the middle is relevant this week imo

      Cam_H · 17/05/2016 at 09:48

      Possibly also worth mentioning Collingwood's Ben Crocker who's also on the bubble (scores of 33 and 62) due to his Fwd/Mid dual-position status. Not huge scores and Round 13 bye nerfs his appeal though.

    Steeeve · 17/05/2016 at 11:40

    Lee from St Kilda has been on the bubble for a while and is an outside chance of returning.

Clarky · 17/05/2016 at 09:34

Hi Community

I am contemplating whether or not to bring in Macpherson this week, but struggling to figure out who for. These are the rookies that are relatively close to culling.
Davis, Gresham, De Goey, Kerridge, Kennedy
None of them are that close to Culling. I am keeping Davis as a loophole option and i won't gain much from him anyway.
Since i only have 68k in the warchest, i wanted to paint the fence in order to pick up Priddis in the midfield, since he is so low.
Ideally, i want to get rid of Brown in defense. But i havent got any swing players.
Need some help community, please give me your opinions!

    David T · 17/05/2016 at 09:48

    As a Priddis owner, if I were you I'd probably ignore Priddis unless he puts up another good score. I feel as though he may not finish in the top mids this season. I'd look to downgrade one of those players you mentioned (Kerridge) and then upgrade Brown to a defender that you think will be top 10 and matches your bye structure…

    Simpson, Bartel, Gibson, Docherty, Laird, Shaw, Rance, Rich (has a good run from here, is cheap and will be put back into the mid more with Beams out for the year and Rocky currently sidelined).

    The other reason to ignore Priddis is that MacPherson may be one of the last quality downgrade options for a while (Hopper is fairly expensive) and there are plenty of great mids dropping in price in the next few weeks (Gray, Selwood, Ward, Smitchell, Parker, Deledio even)

      Clarky · 17/05/2016 at 10:40

      Thanks mate! Love your work

      Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 12:18

      Sound advice. Waiting on Deledio to drop he's my big forward line POD! Good to see him get a 125 on the weekend.

Joel · 17/05/2016 at 09:52

Ward or Shiel?

    Tim · 17/05/2016 at 10:06

    Though ward has a higher breakeven than shiel this week, I think ward will average about 5-10 more ppg. So id go with ward for the extra 47k

Wayno76 · 17/05/2016 at 09:58

With Boyd out I have two players on the bench to cover him wich one should I put the E on
M Brown – Projected score 79 score last round 29
T Ruggles – Projected score 61 score last round 57
mmm decisions …
Please help community. Thoughts?

    Joel · 17/05/2016 at 10:02

    Loophole them, then take the higher score

      Wayno76 · 17/05/2016 at 10:10

      Thanks Joel , will do

Tom · 17/05/2016 at 10:12

Smith wingard and kolodjashnij who to trade and who to hold

    Chill · 17/05/2016 at 10:26

    Hold, hold, hold. Surely you have rookies to upgrade to premos.

Tommo · 17/05/2016 at 10:42

Who would be a better pick in defense? Kaiden Brand or Tom Lee if named? Both seem to have suspect JS. Just need to get rid of Trent Mckenzie the muppet!

    Steeeve · 17/05/2016 at 11:39

    Lots will be wondering the same. Have to wait until teams are unveiled Thursday night. I thought Lee would be called back up but Sam Fisher is supposed to be back for the Saints…

    Brook · 17/05/2016 at 17:50

    keep mckenzie … been very disappointing but will be handy d7 and thru the byes. make the prick do something for our teams

Mark · 17/05/2016 at 10:57

Okay people, forward line is all over the joint and need to know if i cut my loses with billings and upgrade him to montanga??

Also upgrading hewiett to priddis

thoughts on these trades????

    50_Shades · 17/05/2016 at 11:19

    If you truly think Priddis is back, go for it. I'm going to wait another week as I'm not convinced.

    Billings has got essendon this week – might be worth seeing what he can do there. His BE doesn't look out of the question.

Tommy · 17/05/2016 at 11:10

Who to get rid of first? Kerridge or De Goey? Needing to get rid of one this week. Despite being a pies supporter, i am leaning towards De Goey as Collingwood has the slightly harder draw coming to to the byes.

    EdCavey · 17/05/2016 at 11:30

    I would hold De Goey, as he reached over 100 this week, his BE has dropped quite low.
    Kerridge will be inconsistent scoring from around 60-100, but I think that De Goey can average from around 75-100.

    Would trade Kerridge.

    Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 12:05

    That's a really tough call I also have De Goey. Looking at his scoring it's pretty poor against good teams so even with a 53 BE I can understand trading him, he's made 72k which isn't great but at least not a burn man.

    Kerridge has North then Geelong, followed by Brisbane and saints, so if keeping Kerridge then hold him till the byes he should do ok. (Don't freak out if he only gets 70 the next two weeks!)

    I'm going to try and hold both till byes I think but I have others to move on.

EdCavey · 17/05/2016 at 11:29

Hello community!

Thinking to:
Downgrade C. Menedue to D. MacPherson
Upgrade C. Mills to M. Priddis

May trade Papely instead of Menedue, but not sure yet.
I think that Papely may have one last hope at reaching his BE, so keen to keep him for now and then trade him next week along side another $300,000 rookie for J. Hopper (If he performs again) and a Premo (Maybe Docherty or K. Simpson.

    The Mountain · 17/05/2016 at 11:31

    I like the trades mate, however if your looking to bring doc in soon anyway id suggest you do it this round as he has a BE of 37 and wont be this cheap for a while where as pridda has a BE of 100 so holding off for an extra week wouldnt hurt

      Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 11:59


      EdCavey · 18/05/2016 at 09:32

      Will definitely consider that, I've just found out that Houli is out for about 10 weeks, so I think ill be looking to trade C. Mills and B. Houli to S. Docherty and D. MacPherson

Jess_coach · 17/05/2016 at 11:49

Team is:

Shaw, Simpson, Docherty, Bartell, Adams, DBJ (TIP, Brown)

Danger, Parker, Selwood, Ablett, T. mitchell, LiBba, Wines, Petracca, (Hewett, Davis, Gresham)

Gawn, Goldstein (Wyatt)

Merrett, Hall, Dusty, Wells, Kerridge, Mcarthy (cox, menadue)

Thinking of trading one of DBJ or AMT to get Lee or Brand.
Then Mcarthy to Priddis, swinging Petracca forward to F8.

Sound good?

    Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 11:58

    Not that I don't like the trades but you could wait for a round.

    What about MacPherson? Could pay off just to do McCarthy>Mac and swing Petracca forward.

    DBJ has scored well and could bounce back, and AMT can hit his 50 BE, that saying I know you're quite well ranked and want to maintain it or move up preferably so locking in a gun is a wise move.

    Could also double downgrade this week to generate cash I feel like MacPherson is a bit of a must have being only 100k.

    Oh and I'd probably move Brown instead of AMT or DBJ due to his inconsistent scoring.

    Don't mind Brand instead of Tom Lee even though he plays for hawks and may have shaky JS he looks alright as a player.

      Jess_coach · 17/05/2016 at 12:04

      Hmm thanks Southern. Lots to think about. I value your advice and willingness to help people, unlike that guy who's been hassling you.

      But definitely want Priddis this week. He will make his BE and I want maximum scoring potential this week.

      Thanks for the eye opener of trading out brown first. Thats a good 1

        Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 12:14

        Thanks jess 🙂 Don't worry my hide is thick I'm quite resilient!

        Yep you have a lot of options there, there's also Ben Crocker (FWD/MID) who has only scored a 33 and a 62 last week.

        May not make a huge amount of cash and probably shaky JS again but another option.

        Another thought is to do a trade to get your DEF/FWD swing back like Menadue/McCarthy out and then move Brown/AMT forward as well as petracca and lock in Brand/Lee and MacPherson.

          JamiesNinjas13 · 17/05/2016 at 13:50

          Who's giving you crap Southern? Surely not the experience players on this site?

            Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 13:58

            Just someone who couldn't handle brutal honesty I think.

              jockreynolds · 17/05/2016 at 19:42

              Whose been hassling ya mate.. we can't have that!

    JamiesNinjas13 · 17/05/2016 at 13:49

    Trade out Mccarthy to Macpherson and Menadue to Brand (unstable job security) instead.
    Add me on Facebook Jess 😉

    The Ranger · 17/05/2016 at 13:54

    How's ya byes looking Jess?
    Assuming you're still ranked well whatever you do should be with one eye on the byes now.
    Priddis is a sound trade and I prefer MacP to Brand or Lee.

    Rooster · 17/05/2016 at 14:03

    Have you considered Darcy Tucker from Fremantle? He is on the bubble and although he isn't in the Freo side at the moment I would be surprised if he doesn't play another 8 to 10 games before the season is out, given Freo season is shot and they will be looking to develop the young players on the list.

    Essentially even if Lee and/or Brand were named this week and Tucker wasn't I am confident that barring injury Tucker will play more senior footy than both of them before the 2016 season is done.

    Given there are very few defensive downgrade options on the horizon it is making it very problematic to free up cash from our defensive cash cows. That being the case I think Tucker warrants strong consideration even if he isn't named this weekend as given there are so few defensive downgrades he is nearly in my opinion a must have before he plays his 3rd game. No harm in freeing up the cash this week by getting Tucker as you won't need him on the ground.
    By getting him this week even if not named you are saving the need to have to bring him in when you may have other trades to do when he is eventually selected again. Bit of a risk but in my opinion well worth considering as it is going to hard work freeing up cash in the backs moving fwd and I am confident barring injury that Tucker will play double figure games this season and can average in excess of 60.

    I would be passing on Macpherson – questionable JS and scoring ability. I think we can wait for more mid rooks to appear such as Trengove, Mathieson and Kennedy in coming weeks. Also have Hopper on the horizon if you want to pay the premium.

      Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 14:11

      Good points Rooster (except I'll be getting MacPherson!)

      Fairly sure I will be forced to get tucker at some point though as I have a rookie heavy back line. Prefer him over Tom lee as you say he should get more games through the season.

matt · 17/05/2016 at 12:08

who is the best trade in out of Docherty, Gibbo or bartel?

    Dee · 17/05/2016 at 12:21

    flip a coin… Bartel for me.

      Jess_coach · 17/05/2016 at 13:02

      Yup flip a coin:

      Docherty = heads,
      Bartel = tails
      Gibson = on the side (dont get Gibson)

      Would be leaning towards Docherty

      50_Shades · 17/05/2016 at 13:02

      Docherty for me. Low BE this week, averaging 12 Prd better and no fear of being rested (if that's a valid concern with Bartel).

Tulendeena · 17/05/2016 at 12:19

Montagna or Pendles this week?

Bye's the same, 80k's the difference

TRIGGER HAPPY · 17/05/2016 at 12:45

What do we think is more worthwhile?

Trading benken to Mac Pherson or crocker.
If trade crocker keep dpp swing but js and $ may be a worry.
If macpherson cheap so will make money but loose dpp.
With the amount of injuries starting to think it is better to keep dpp?

    Boltons Blues · 17/05/2016 at 13:18

    Gold Coast are getting smashed nearly every game and are no where near competitive, i dont like Crocker for his JS and MacPherson is a hard tackler and in and under player, the player GC need, his JS is good and i think will be in for awhile still.
    DPP yeah you need it but you also need your rookies playing

      The Ranger · 17/05/2016 at 15:31

      Just my two cents but I've watched Crocker twice mate and I don't think he'll hold his spot.

Boltons Blues · 17/05/2016 at 13:35

Houli to miss 12 WEEKS after Wrist surgery
trade away guys
Yarran and Rioli also missing weeks, both gone home to their states for personal reasons

SCaddict · 17/05/2016 at 13:35

Bachar sidelined for about 12 weeks apparently. Geez that must be one bad wrist?

All those years of flogging off must have finally caught up with him!

    Blueth · 17/05/2016 at 13:41


    JamiesNinjas13 · 17/05/2016 at 13:42

    ah I feared it, looking at the past players with wrist injuries, none were ever less than 6 weeks. Why did I pick him 2 weeks ago!!??

      SCaddict · 17/05/2016 at 14:14

      Yeah it would be especially annoying when you just traded into him. I suffered that fate with both Sloane and Rocky last season.

TRIGGER HAPPY · 17/05/2016 at 13:37

That's what is making the decision a tough one.
Team is:
Mid: Danger, god, priddus, gray, Parker, sheil, duncan benken. (Davis, Smith, dunkley).
Fwd: dusty, hall, wingard, Wells, kerridge, petrecca. (Paps, menapoo)

Trades: paps – montagna, benken – ?
Leaves me with Smith, Davis, macpherson, dunkley as M8
Rd 10 trading kerridge to zorko. Leaves petrecca at F7.
If trade in crocker instead of macpherson can dpp petrecca to m8 which I think I prefer.

Whaddya think?

    Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 15:50

    Double downgrade?

    Menadue and Paps out for Crocker and MacPherson via DPP.

    Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 16:08

    MacPherson would have better JS and potential profit than Crocker I reckon.

Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 13:45

For anybody that missed the information…………

Marcus Adams will not be playing this weekend so is a prime candidate to be traded if you have no other more pressing matters in your team.

He was expected to only miss one but the finger has healed slower than expected. It would be safe to assume he'll be back to face Collingwood next week (round 10)

Downgrade option would be Kaiden Brand if named this weekend.

Was bored so did a breakdown of defensive options……………

512k Docherty 37 BE – Lock
477k Gibson 63 BE – Lock
470k Enright 67 BE – Lock
465k Savage 77 BE (Averaging 98 over the last 5 rounds he's interesting. Scored tons vs WCE, Hawks, GWS and Nth 2% ownership)
547k Simpson 78 BE – Lock
372k McDonald 79 BE (Coming off a 100, can he start scoring well again? I'd say probably not)
495k Bartel 85 BE – Lock
422k Williams 88 BE (High risk, high reward?)
566k Boyd 97 BE (suspended this week so remember to save a spot if you want him) – Lock
454k Houli 106 BE (if named, also not convinced)
437k Rich 109 BE (Will he get more ball with no Beams and Rocky? Ironically he's averaging 84 like every other year, take savage instead)
600k Shaw 111 BE – Lock
486k Pittard 114 BE (not convinced)
490k Laird 114 BE (if named) – Lock
402k Pearce 115 BE (May get mid time? Ultra High risk, not sure why I put him in there.)
472k McVeigh 122 BE (not convinced yet)
546k Rance 151 BE – Lock

    Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 13:48

    I guess this defensive breakdown is even more relevant with Houli out for 12 weeks!

    Jimmy · 17/05/2016 at 13:53

    What about KK, Macmillan, Rampe, McGovern?

      Blueth · 17/05/2016 at 13:57

      all too unreliable…maybe KK after the bye if GC pick up

      Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 14:09

      Thanks Jimmy I knew I'd miss a few!

      438k Rampe BE 97 – Kind of in the same boat as Rich with his average, and no chance of getting midfield time of course, would have to take Zac Williams or Savage over him.

      385k KK 123 BE – Avoid like the plague. had a 113, and the rest of his scores are in the 50-77 range.

      Coming off two 50's it's not looking good for him. Hope he can turn it up for the people who own him but I'd consider trading him over to Zac Williams or Savage at this point. Or upgrade him to a 500k premo of course.

      456k McGovern BE 83 – Started garbage. last 4 scores are 134, 77, 96 and 97. Looks like the Gov is back but is awkwardly priced when he can be a little inconsistent. Maybe try a punt on Savage/Williams or just spend the extra 50k and get someone reliable.

      411k MacMillan BE 96 – Averaging under 80 Doesn't warrant being on the radar.

        Derek · 17/05/2016 at 15:08

        its easy to say lock to all of them, but some of these guys are a bit pricey. defense was always going to be hard because we didn't know who the top 8 will be, it is starting to become clearer now. however one of our other rules is not spend money in defence and this year it is even more important. My team value is just on $12mil, i was hoping it would be alot closer to my $14.5mil target, but the rookies this year have been a very mixed bag and seriously i don't think we can get near the $14.5mil needed, and therefore we need to look at a few value picks this year. the value picks will need to be in defense.

        Birchell & McVeigh (in 2 more weeks) look good value.

          Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 15:34

          Of course the locks are very subjective but those are as I see them now after this year's scoring so far.

          Birchall has been consistently dropping his average over the past few years and in my opinion becoming no longer supercoach relevant.

          Even McVeigh although less likely too, could possibly fall into that bracket. Maybe his role at Sydney has changed or he's just coming back into form, we will see.

          Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 15:40

          You are right about needing to find some good bargains and defense being a good place for it, on that not I'd go for the likes of Savage, Mcveigh and Zac Williams.

          A smoky could be Tom McDonald he would be an amazing buy if he gets back to 500k.

          When I say avoid like the plague on someone like KK, I mean this week, he could turn around his form and be one of those players you speak of that is a bargain and becomes a good premo.

          TRIGGER HAPPY · 17/05/2016 at 16:06

          Hasn't helped us starting wingard. 🙁

            Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 16:11

            Soon he will be in forward rookie write ups 🙂

            Nah his BE is now 81 I'd expect him to be finding his way into teams next week.

              Derek · 17/05/2016 at 18:52

              Even Zac Dawson went missing last week. Lucky i didn't bring him in

    Vinny · 17/05/2016 at 14:19

    Love the insights Southern S. Great Job.

      Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 15:34

      Thanks Vinny

GoHawks · 17/05/2016 at 13:51

Appreciate the communities opinion's on which Fwd eligible players will likely be ranked as the best 6 forwards.

I'm thinking-

Dusty, Zorko, Buddy, Deledio, Hall?, & Montagna or ZMerrett

    Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 13:53

    Like them for a top 7, wouldn't know who to leave out honestly. Wells could be a smoky if he stays fit.

    The Mountain · 17/05/2016 at 13:59

    chuck Lukey dal in there as well

    Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 14:13

    Yep totally forgot about Dahl, probably be the top forward!

Merrijigmob · 17/05/2016 at 14:09

Dahlhaus is the best forward going round and in a top side. Discount any non mid/fwd including Buddy. Come finals, ensure you have a Petracca or Wells on your mid bench so you can interchange if a prime mid goes down.

Vinny · 17/05/2016 at 14:11

Finally reached my goal inside the top 500. Now onto top 250, then 100. 😉
My team currently sits as :

DEF:Simpson (got him at 483,200), Gibson, Laird, Macmillan, Hartely, DBJ (Ruggles, Brown)

MID:Dangerfield, Selwood, Hannebery, Parker, Ablett, Liberatore, Kerridge, Kennedy (Melb) (Menadue, Hewett, Smith)

RUCK: Goldstein, Naitanui (Wyatt)

FOR: Dahlhaus, Barlow, Hall, Martin, Franklin, Wells (Petracca, McCarthy)

My trades this week is to dispose of McCarthy for Macpherson via DPP menadue
Kerridge for either Priddis, or Docherty via DPP
Feel my Midfield needs some more however I don't want to bypass Docherty. Also, the reason I don't have Shaw in my defense yet is because i am waiting till after byes.

MacMillan has been very ordinay no doubt, but im gonna stick with him hoping for a big 2nd half, or at least a reliable D7.

Rucks look set however i am very weary about Wyatt, and dont want to get donuts. Any ideas there?

Lastly Forwards for me look pretty set too, although Barlow better get promoted this week.

Would love to keep these rankings for a while. Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 16:06

    You got Simmo for 483k! Very nice purchase.

    Like the trades you're doing wouldn't change them. Docherty seems like the go, can ahve another look at Priddis on a 100 BE.

    Smith and Kennedy should score ok for your M7/M8 spots.

The Mountain · 17/05/2016 at 14:16

Some people are starting to lose their marbles community

Gablett is currently to 9th most traded out player this week.

    Measles · 17/05/2016 at 14:18

    Agree. Trigger finger happy. The fools will learn eventually.

    GoHawks · 17/05/2016 at 14:53

    Same people that got rid of Barlow at his cheapest.

GoHawks · 17/05/2016 at 14:43

Jarred Roughead is out for the rest of the season, skin cancer returned. His caught it early again, hopefully can be cancer free after the surgery/s.

Going to be interesting to see what Clarko can pull out of the hat this year. If Hawthorn win this year, it will be the best win yet.

    Derek · 17/05/2016 at 15:12

    send gibbo forward. has kicked two goals this year!

    Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 15:51

    Geeez feel sorry for the bloke that's horrible.

breakevens · 17/05/2016 at 14:58

Reece Conca a potential option over the next couple of weeks as Bachar Houli goes under the knife
Racked up 22 touches across the half back line in the seconds on Saturday and could be a potential downgrade option over the next few weeks

    Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 16:12

    Interesting, if he comes straight into the side this week he may be worth watching over the next couple.

breakevens · 17/05/2016 at 15:02

Thoughts Fellas
Kerridge out Jordan Lewis in
104 and 122 over the las two weeks and can pick him up for under 450k

    Derek · 17/05/2016 at 15:11

    Sam Mitchell out last week helps him. Hodge will be back soon. He just won't be that good.

      breakevens · 17/05/2016 at 15:16

      Mitchell was playing this week and Hodge is still weeks away

    The Ranger · 17/05/2016 at 15:14

    Def one to consider. Can go big and looks to be finding some form.
    Risky pick tho. When he spuds it up he really spuds it up.

    Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 15:45

    Is a good POD at under 2% ownership and if you're struggling to make a lot of cash this year due to lack of rookies then worth it I reckon.

    Another option around the price point with similar potential is Marc Murphy. Also in under 2% of teams.

    Either of them would make a decent M8.

rox · 17/05/2016 at 15:22

howl gone for 12 weeks….trade away people!

rox · 17/05/2016 at 15:23

howl bloody autocorrect Houli

min0008 · 17/05/2016 at 15:26

Have 22 trades and 33k left and ranked 1239.

My team is currently as:
Def: Shaw, Laird, Bartel, Simpson, Adams, DBJ, Brown, Byrne
Mid: Ablett, Pendlebury, Selwood, Dangerfield, Parker, Wines, Libba, Wells, Hewett, Davis, Smith
Ruc: Martin, Nic Nat, Loersch
Fwd: martin, Barlow, Hall, Kerridge, Kennedy, Petracca, AMT, Menadue

I got 2 trades in mind :
Adams and Brown to MacPherson and Docherty
Adams and Hewett to MacPherson and Docherty.

Option 1 leaves me with 66k but DPP in mid/fwd is gone while option 2 gives me the DPP and left with not much.

JamiesNinjas13 · 17/05/2016 at 15:33

Anyone else frustrate that they can't get in Martin, Zorko or Dahlhaus because they are around their max price? I'm in need of a cheap or avg price premium fwd and I'm not satisfied on Merrett or Buddy. Looks like ill focus on getting in fallen premos in the mid over the next month instead….

    Tommy · 17/05/2016 at 15:43

    Martin is definitely not at max price. Yes, Zorko and Dahlhaus are pretty close.

    Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 15:57

    I know what you mean they all are fairly expensive,

    Dusty is at a decent price he started the year at 570k and can reach that again pretty quickly if he keeps scoring like he is.

    Proved himself last week against Sydney to be in form and has strung together three games of 115+ probably a good time to lock him in. 86 BE.

    cashcows · 17/05/2016 at 16:18

    I would keep Buddy, he's primed for 100 goals this season. Was considering bringing him in but he isn't exactly a pod

      Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 16:29

      They're not trading Buddy or Merrett. Just not satisfied with them as possible selections.

      I think…………….

        Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 16:30

        * I hope.

          cashcows · 17/05/2016 at 16:36

          guess you can't swear here.

          Yeah I get that. Its just really easy for these thoughts to turn into actual trades and I'm just saying he's worth it.
          He's a KPP, it'll happen but he's definitely more consistent this year.

    SCaddict · 17/05/2016 at 17:02

    Think we just have to stump up the cash as they are getting it done especially in recent weeks. Will likely get Dusty in this week if things go to plan.

Chuka45 · 17/05/2016 at 16:11

could go for Gunston priced at 466k and avg of 92 with a 3/5 round avg of 105/90

Southern S · 17/05/2016 at 16:25

Mathieson may debut for the Lions this week.

Laird will miss his third week………..frustrating.

Weitering may return, but not guaranteed.

Michael Barlow is competing for a spot with Connor Blakely? Surely gets the gig after 39 touches last weekend.

Sorry guys but Zac Dawson will spend some time in the Waffle.

Greene should return.

It's uncertain if Rioli will return for the match this weekend.

Wells likely to return.

Robbie Gray expected to return.

Reece Conca got a mention.

JPK may return from a hamstring issue.

Kieran Collins a possible debut for the dogs with so many defenders down.
