Kerridge and M.Crouch for

Priddis and Pendles
Pendles and MacPherson


That's a bit of a no brainer when the aim of the game is to get full premium

Southern S

Depends on how they are travelling though may have miised keays and/or Josh smith


Up to you really, I would obviously be going with Priddis and Pendles, but if you have to get someone in next week that is very exspenive, maybe the other option.


currently have 22 trades so considering holding but have:
m mcgovern
m adams

hold or trade ?


Adams out for another week – trade
Ive got Menadue and keeping as he is nor making money, nor losing, so im just holding for now.
What is McGovern breakeven?
In saying so, paint the fence. Upgrade/Downgrade McGovern/Adams.
Hope it helps


I have Houli & Brown in the Backline + Lyons in the FWD line? Which 2 do I trade out? (No DPP for backline) 33k in the kitty.


Houli needs to go out for supposedly 12, straight swap to another premium. Downgrade Brown/Lyons to macpherson if you can. Preferably brown though as lyons not playing wont decrease cash.


Thanks mate


Lyons a chance to play this week. Check teams reveal.


thoughts on my team:
22 trades 132K in bank


any thoughts would be awesome cheers


Use the two trades i think. Maybe kerridge to macpherson via DPP (Petracca)
Ugrade Brown/Adams to a preom (Rance, Gibbo, Bartel etc)

ben j

horrible team


why do you say that ben


Gaff + Davis —> MacPherson + Coniglio
… Just a thought
… Best of luck with whatever you do. :O)

Benjamima Puddleduck

Love it JR



Sorry posted this in the recent blog thingy, but not sure if anyone seen it so.
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.


What a team mate. Wow. A chance to win the 50k. Good luck champion


By the way Jock, love that photo.


Called for it on twitter, we need a HD version for wallpapers.


You reckon jocks head was lifted out of one of his home movies?

Southern S

The picture came from Marvel Studios.

Sadly they cut short Jock's Hollywood career after he got too aroused during filming.

I won't go into details of what occurred on set, but lets just say there are still many marvel employees going through therapy.

Average Joe

Trade in Montagna or Docherty?


Docherty hasn't missed a beat all year. Montagna's age worries me (33 this year), although age is only a number.







Who to trade in this week?

Zorko or Dahlhaus

Want them both in the next 3-4 weeks


I'd go Dahl, personally i still get jittery bringing in guys from shit teams so extra time to evalute said decision would sit well with me


No way, I myself am bringing Zorko in this week. like hannebery he hasn't scored below a 100 yet. And Consistency is key in SC, besides that zorks record against Melbourne is pretty darn good!


Laird, will he be back this week?, has anyone heard.


One more week out it looks like

Southern S

Out for another 🙁 but hold


G'day Community, absolute carnage this week.

I have 290K and 23 trades left.
DEF: Shaw, Rance, Simpson, Houli, Laird, Adams (AMT, DBJ)
MID: Danger, Pendles, GAZ, Priddis, Libba, Mills, Parish, Petracca (Hewett, Smith, Dunkley)
RUC: Gawn, Naitanui (Wyatt)
FWD: Hall, Barlow, Greene, Wells, BenKen, Kerridge (Papley, Menadue)

My trade options: (All premiums are suited to my bye structure)

1) Houli to Gibson/Docherty and Mills to Dusty/Zorko
2) Houli to Gibson/Docherty and Papley to Dusty
3) Houli to Gibson/Docherty and Papley/Mills to MacPherson



Double premium mate. Time to start start spending. Your midfield especially looks very thin after eight rounds


Guys who's going to any matches this week


Friday night for sure


community, any ideas for trades for my team this week. i have 19 trades left and 115k in the bank.

def- shaw, simpson, laird, pittard, byrne jones and hartley(brown, ruggles)
mid- danger, pendles, parker, mitchell, shiel, liberatore, priddis, keays(hewett, davis, dunkley)
ruc- gawn, nic nat( goetz)
fwd- zorko, martin, hall, barlow, wells, kerridge( petracca, mcgovern)



Warchest is limited, the cows are plumping up all together.
So I'm thinking:
Kerridge to MacPherson.
Menadue to Lee (St Kilda).

Will leave me with $500K, 22 trades, and being five players away from full premo.

Would love your thoughts


Wouldn't trade in Lee. Even if he does play there's huge question marks over his js


defence rookies could be hard to find over the next few weeks when people want to cash in their defence rookies. I'm thinking you need to take Lee if he is named and you need to cull a defence rookie.


Is there really any harm in having him ride the bench? If you're taking someone with no real intention of them playing though, should probably choose a player at bargain basement price with a swing set.


Another def rookie is Williams from Bulldogswho scored 60 on debut – on bench for most of first half.. Def/Mid DPP status but may be dropped when Adams returns.

Southern S

Take Lee or Tucker if named, if neither named take Brand, again…..if named.


I reckon Priddis can wait a week, even against Port it's an away game for West Coast and they may find a way to stuff it all up


No they wont. Look at who they've played away so far. They've played Sydney, Geelong and Hawthorn away.


Hey community,

Well my main intention this week was to keep my finger off the ‘trade’ button after making several 1 up, 1 down trades over the last 2-3 weeks. But unfortunately with the recent injury news on Houli my hand has been forced.

To make things harder, I don’t have nearly enough in the bank, having currently got $6.2k in the bank.

If I was to make just the one trade, it seems like the only reasonable options for Houli around his dropped price range are Birchall, Rich, Rampe, and Broadbent (IMO). None of those guys really inspire confidence to me.

Or the other option is to use 2 trades to downgrade a rookie with one trade, get some $$$ and then I can easily afford to upgrade Houli to a likely top 5-10 Defender (Docherty, Rance, Boyd, Gibson, etc.)

Should I use the one trade for a sideways move to a mid-price Defender, or use 2 trades to trade Houli to a top-shelf Defender?

I currently have 19 trades left also.


My Defence as it currently stands also:

Shaw, Simpson, Bartel, Byrne-Jones, Tippa, Hartley (HOULI, Adams)


would you have enough to use 1 trade and get savage


where is laird?


Not named?

The Mountain

whats the rest of your team look like mate, are you able to bring mcpherson in and upgrade houli with the extra cash


Hey mate, the rest of my team is:

DEF: Shaw, Simpson, Bartel, AMT, DBJ, Hartley (Houli, Adams)

MID: Dangerfield, Hannebery, Pendles, Ward, Ablett, Wines, Libba, J.Smith (Hewett, Menadue, Davis)

RUCK: Gawn, Martin (Wyatt)

FWD: Martin, Barlow, Hall, Wells, Kerridge, BenKen (Brown, Petracca)


I'm just under 5k short of Savage in terms of a straight swap.


I certainly have the option of bringing Macpherson in via DPP links.

The Mountain

Alrighty, looking at your team, menadues pretty much made all the money he can. Hes probably to best to downgrade but you can also have him as cover with all the injuries that will occur if the first 8 rounds are anything to go by, same can be said for hewett. Id go one of these to mcpherson, menadue leaves you with a dpp in the mid. Id then go houli to Doc or to a boyd or laird if you fine with having them one the bench for an extra week. In my mind these are the 3 best defenders you can get to give yourself to top 6 down back

The Mountain

Or even rance


Upgrade Byrne-Jones AMT or Hartley?

Boltons Blues

Hartley AMT DBJ in that order
DBJ shouldnt be considered yet, had 1 bad week after 4 really good weeks


what to do with kolodjashnij??


Having held him this long us KK owners have already lost a tonne of money so I feel we're too late to offload. Frankly i don't see it possible for him to get much worse and should the world start crumbling around us and blokes start going down with injuries forcing us to use trades I'd rather be stuck with a guy like him in my side who has played premo footy in the past rather than a guy like Brown


Thats why I'm holding jock stain brodie smith


and Wingard


Dahl or Zorko?


Gday lads would love some advice on my team

Shaw, Laird, Adams, Dea, KK, DBJ (Tippa, Hartley)

Danger, Hannebery, Parker, Ablett, Libba, Wines, B Crouch, Petracca (J Smith, Keays, Gresham)

Gawn, Naitanui (Grimley)

Hall, Zorko, Martin, Wells, Kerridge, Barlow (Brown, Menadue)

Any thoughts are greatly appreciated, got 286k currently in the kitty, not sure on whether to double downgrade Gresham (only 198k so not much money to be made but can't see his price increasing) to MacPherson, and Brown to Crocker (not sure about his security) but this will leave me with over 600k to pull the trigger on two premos next week (potentially crouch to priddis and dea/tippa to Simpson). Other option is getting Priddis or Simpson this week or potentially downgrading crouch to Hopper next week if he scores around 90 again.

Any thoughts are greatly appreciated, thanks lads

Any thoughts greatly appreciated thanks lads

The Mountain

Id trade brown to mcpherson via petracca and either crouch to pridda or either hartley(not to keen this early) or KK to simpson


Thanks for the input mate, but How would I trade brown to McPherson via petracca with petracca being a mid/fwd and brown being def/fwd, am I missing something, because if possible that would be perfect.


click the trade button on brown and then on the trade screen where your team is showed on the side there should be an 'S' next to Petraccas name click that then you can trade a mid in


Would close his Mid Fwd swing though


perhaps brown to mcpherson via petracca as The Mountain said above, then crouch to dahl via kerridge, I see your forward line is already relatively strong compared to your back line but this would ensure you keep your fwd/mid swing option and also means your fwd line is essentially already at full premo status considering barlow regains his spot, meaning you can focus the rest of your trades on mids and def. I am considering doing a similar swap, thoughts would be appreciated


hang onto Gresham. I have watched him the last few weeks and he tries really hard, gets the ball plenty but just can't hit a target.

Saints have Essendon and Fremantle next two weeks, little less pressure he might just hit a few targets and score really well.


team is – have 111k in the bank

Defence: Shaw, Enright, HOULI, Laird, Tipungwuti, Byrne-Jones (Byrne, Ruggles)

Midfield: Dangerfield, Hannebery, Ward, Ablett, Shiel, Zieball, Priddis, Petracca (Hewett, Davis, Gresham)

Ruck: Gawn, Naitanui (Lorensch)

Forward: Hall, Martin, Wells, DeGoey, Kerridge, BKennedy (Menadue, 102k Rookie)

my original trade plans were going to be
Out: Davis & Kerridge and IN: Macpherson & Sloane but now with Houli out I'm not sure what i should do

i could downgrade him to Brand an bank the cash for upgrades but i was thinking its better to get premos so i could get Savage and gunston

I dont know much about SC so trade idea's people

The Mountain

id go ahead with the davis trade and then houli to simpson or doc

The Mountain

This is meant to be a comment for james ^


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.


Attention damiem Hardwick, please drop menas so the crab might actually be useful for the next two weeks


Awesome podcast lads.

"Munch the rug for another week" – Absolute Gold.

Interesting not much talk of discounted premiums Jordan Lewis and David Mundy. Also, Neale and Coniglio flying under the radar.

The Fremantle draw opens right up leading into the byes.


Shhhhhhhhhh, Jordan is in next week for me. Their draw also looks pretty good after Sydney this week.


A LIVE PODCAST??? Geez this is exciting. Pity no one seems to give a toss because I'm keen to listen to it! Should be hilarious. Would prefer a collingwood game though Jock so I could listen to you go absolutely mental at Bucks again.


T/U Brown to Gibson… Current premo backs Shaw, Doc, Liard, Bartel…
T/D Kennedy to Montagna… current premos Martin, Barlow, Hall….

Both at a good price…


I like gibbo. Started with him and he's already had a rest.
Looks like you need a fwd more tho.




Zerret, still iffy with him at pointer end of the year. Coming from a Ess supporter here… Lol.
Zorko/Dahl fall short by 1K…


Have 18 trades and 262,800k in the kitty. Ranked just over 1400.

My team is
Def: Shaw, Laird, Gibson, Hartley, Byrne, DBJ (Brown, Ruggles)
Mid: Dangerfield, Parker, Pendles, Ward, Selwood, Ablett, Sloane, Libba (Hewett, Smith, Gresham)
Rck: Nic Nac, Goldstein (Goetz)
Fwd: Martin, Hall, Wells, Barlow, Kerridge, Kennedy (Petracca, Cox)

Ok the first trade is locked in as Hewett to McPherson but the second trade is hard to decide. Do I go Brown to Docherty/Simpson or Kerridge to Zorko/Montagna? Thoughts?

The Mountain

all are great options. Id personally pick zorko or simpson, however if your after doc id get him in now as his BE is only 37 and i looking at rising 30K


i like montagna. Saints have two very winnable games coming up against essendon and fremantle (home). he should go real good.


hot midfield, but you gotta get simpson in there stat


Bit stumped this week.
Davis or Hewitt for Macpherson??? Davis seems a waste of a trade but I've run out of swingsets in the mids. Really is bugger all rookies in def and fwd. Do we start looking at the permanent loophole player so soon?
I can go Weitering/Kerridge into Doch/Dusty but feel Kerridge has a bit more cash to milk out.

The Mountain

Id get rid of weits soon, if not this week. His BE is 114 and will leak cash when he comes back


Quick question, if priddis were to score, say 150, this week, how much would his price inflate next week? just wondering whether i can wait a week before i grab him.


Around $515K I think James – not too bad.


perfect, thanks lads


how many trades should people have at the start of the byes?


Depends if you plan to use all 9. If you're down to single figure trades after the byes you'd want to be full premium and only using trades to cover injuries


After the byes we have 8 rounds left
You shouldnt need 2 trades per week but id say youd want 1 to 1.5 per week
So id say you want around 10 trades after the byes
But youd want to be at full premo by then


hi community, ive got 19 trades left with 115 k in the bank, should i be looking for another upgrade this weak and use 2 trades or save them?


What are your thoughts on these trades community ?
Houli and Davis
Docherty and MacPherson


Yes, No brainier Liam.


Cheers Stevo.


Like these moves


Very nice trades. Solid as a rock. Cheers


Thinking of trading Kerridge and Kennedy to Macpherson and Dahl, but now wondering if I'm pulling the trigger too early on them both? Very much still have achievable B/E's. Have a three week plan that works if I get rid of these 2 now. Hmmm…..


Depends on how you are set up
I cant find a way around not trading kerridge so i forced too
If you can work out trades not to trades not to use them then do that as they are 70 and 60 consistent


Should I get in Pendlebury, Priddas or Lachie Neal in this week?


Depends what you think is best for your team do you need a proven sc gun in pendles a fallen premo in prid or a POD in Neale also think about byes


Pendles if you have the cash.


Pendles all the way…



At $496K you have to grab him at this bargain basement price. Pendles can wait as his price will be less volatile in the next few weeks.



Should I do M brown to Bailey Williams/ Brand or Lincoln McCarthy to Crocker

The Mountain

None of them are worth bringing in, wait a week and reassess with williams


Williams can't have any kind of JS with three key Dogs backmen set to return before long.


How long is houli out for?


12 weeks at this stage Liam


How does 12 weeks sound? Stuffed wrist . What a tosser….No pun intended…LOL


I've found a good useful trade for Davis. Straight swap for hopper


i rekon davis will get a game this week


I think he will to if Abs sits? Wait on hopper for 1 more week dont jump the gun. He did go up against the Lions might be a smoke screen? Tougher opponent this week.


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 . Would like to get Priddis, Docherty or Zorko in this week but not sure if there is a way to get zorko in without trading smith. . What should be my priority this week? Also do I cop the massive price loss Bsmith will start to take in the coming weeks due to my limited trades. If I do hold Smith then I would have to slaughter one other rookie apart from mccarthy who will probable be slaughtered this week. I could bring in Docherty this week and then Priddis in next week, however my bye structure is currently 9-13-8 and mccarthy is in the 3rd round so bringing in zorko soon fits my bye structure perfectly. Many options I could go with this week not sue which one is the best

Really need some help here community

Southern S

Brodie Smith out, McCarthy out.

MacPherson and Priddis/Docherty in via DPP.

Southern S

Or Paps/Menadue and McCarthy out*


Thanks southern I like this option better because I think Brodie can camo back and wasnt doing good or too bad before the 22. Who do you think I should bring in?


McCathy's out for a few weeks atleast


Is he? I did not know that hmm I am not sure what I should trade now. Might just go Mccarthy and Brown to Doch and Macpherson.
But then idk who I would trade out next week for Priddis… decisions

Southern S

I've been thinking and I'd assume that Papley is going to spud it up against the hawks. Better off keeping Brown playing against the Saints?

Both have similar BE's but go with your gut but that's just my feeling.


only reason that id prefer to chop brown was because i dont have to change my structures if bringing in doc but if i bring in priddis trading out papley doesnt affect it too much. But i cannot disagree with your logic there can imagine papley spudding up


Hi guys, I'm in need of a little help. I'm in two cash leagues and just sitting in the eight. I need to start pushing this team into becoming a threat, and the only way to do that is with the help of the community!!

So I've got 21 trades and $397.9 in the war-chest. I've also been slaughtered with injuries the past weeks or so.

Defence: Shaw, McDonald-Tip, Byrne-Jones, Dea, Hartley, Byrne (Laird, Adams)

Midfield: Dangerfield, Hannebery, Parker, Gray, Liberatore, Kennedy, Cripps, Petracca (Rockliff, Menadue, Davis)

Ruck: Gawn, Nic Nat (Grimley)

Forward: Martin, Hall, Kerridge, Barlow, Wells, Papley (Cox, Brown)

As you can see I've got Rockliff on the bench. I'm kinda in two minds about whether to trade him or not because if his back in a week or so he could be a good POD(?)

The Mountain

So the way I see it is adams -> simpson leaves you with nearly exactly 200K. from there you can either go hartley to bartel and have about 4K or you can go rocky to any midfielder of your choice. personally if you've held him this long, may as well wait a bit longer but i wouldnt downgrade him. id go brown to mcpherson via menaspud if your looking to downgrade otherwise double upgrade.


Wow Jock, great podcast, up there with the greats. Love the rant over Pendlebury & FND.

I have 22 trades but cash poor. While Gibson and Priddis appeal, not enough cash to get there. So thinking Menadue & Davis to Cox (DPP swing) and Hopper.

Kerridge and DBJ still fattening up. Mitch Brown and Tippa swing Def/Fwd (Brown on bench). Thoughts community?

Southern S

Trading Cox in now on a -2 BE is risky. Already gone up 86k. Feels like that boat has sailed.

The Mountain

I wouldnt be so quick trade crocker in either, JS and scoring ability are an issue


Any good downgrade targets coming???

I am deciding whether to do a double upgrade this week and downgrade next week or to paint the fence this week and dowble upgrade next week.

Or do I get a nobody next week who is dirt cheap??
Is MacPherson a must have??

Thanks in advance

Southern S

Macpherson in my eyes is almost must have, you get a nice bit of cash in your pocket as he's 100k flat, and seems to have decent JS.

The Ranger

Same decision for me Tommo, leaning towards the double up this week but any $102k rookie that has reasonably good JS is bloody tempting.
Gotta get to full premium asap as well tho eh?


MacPherson this week, Hopper next week and most likely Mathieson the following week, not sure I have 3 rookie spots in midfield


Mattison from Brisbane getting his first game this week. Would have played round 1 if he didn't get his jaw broken.


So get him


^ instead?

The Mountain

your defences very thin so i would go adams to simpson and you might have enough to upgrade a rookie like hartley to a bartel priced defender


I'm better of going Brown out, and swing McDonald-Tip to forward, then bring in Simpson?


Yeah Brown out swing MDT fwd bring in a premium defender to bolster your backline. I'd trade Rockliff out and bring in a rookie MacPherson, then use the cash next week to bring in a premium midfielder or DPP mid fwd like Dahlouse or Zorko.


You reckon do Rockliff to Macpherson?


Yeah, trade down then trade up, use the cash and cull a cow next week to bring in a premium.


I wouldn't keep Rockliff but the other option would be trade out Menadue for MacPherson or Crocker or if you wanted to risk Hopper to keep building up the cash so you can start to bring in some premium players when you cull your cash cows.


Need to get me 1 of those pool nets (fly screen) from Wayno. Wayno sells good products.


The window nets worked great on me bloody great on me vehicle on me trek in the bush! Bloody Wayno has a universal business with the fly net and pools nets! Bloody Genius!


Hear hear! I heard that they are made to last! No substitute for quality… ;-0


Can I invest in Wayno Industries?


the lack of Bont talk in here is alarming


On my watchlist mate.


clearly the gruesome TAC ads didn't penetrate…bont up or suffer the pain


i would personally watch bont because he has mainly been playing a half forward role but when redpath came in he moved back in the guts


he's also had a foot issue which has cleared up so his midfield time is gonna stay high


Spewing I don't pull the trigger last week on Adams to Doc!

This week do you think it's more important to bring ink Doc or The Product? I'm fielding all three bombers in my backline atm, so not ideal.


The Product = The Prid in predictive text world


the product is the priddoris! lock


Thoughts community

Shaw, Simpson, Bartel, Laird, Adams, Byrne-Jones (Hartley, Ruggles)

Danger, Parker, Ward, Gazza, Libba, Lewis, Priddis, Smith (Davis, Keays, Gore)

Gawn, Nic Nat (Grimley)

Dalhaus, Merrett, Hall, Dustin, Wells, AMT (Cox, Petracca)

Trades this week
Lewis in
Kerridge out


Christ, as in 'Jordan Lewis"? If so then you've got a good set of plums on you mate.


Don't mind Lewis mate I think he's a steal

Southern S

Don't expect him to suddenly rise to his former glory but it could work out alright and he is priced low.


Shaw, Simpson, Adams, Hartley, Darcy Bryne-Jones, Ruggles, Brown
I've got 342k in the bank so who do you reckon I should be trading in this week?


I'd defs go Docherty mate he's getting it done week in week out


Did I hear correctly… are the lads commentating the game live on Friday night?!?


Davis to MacPherson and Adams to Gibson for me this week.
Just questioning the worth regarding the Davis to MacPherson trade, should I cull Menadue, Papsmear or Brown instead for more cash?

Thoughts community??

Southern S

Davis might be named this week so you might want to cull papley or brown if that is the case.

Both scored 29 last week and have a simliar BE around 53 take your pick.

I'd be inclined to trade Pap considering Sydney are playing hawks at the MCG. (Bombers play sainters)


Hi community, not sure about bringing MacPherson into my side. Getting him in opens the possibility for the likes of Matt Priddis, but he might be worth another look.

Ranked 1650 – $2,400 – 21 Trades

Shaw-Simpson-Bartel Brown
Gibbo-Laird-Weitering DBJ

Danger-Parker Menadue
Pendels-Ablett-Libba Davis
Wines-Wells-J.Smith Keays

Naitanui-Goldstein Grimley

Hall-Zorko-Kerridge Papley
Greene-Adams-Tippa Petracca


19 trades left, $262.4K in the bank.


DEF: Heater, Bartel (MID), Hartley, MBrown (FWD), DBJ, Wagner (Laird, Ruggles)
MID: Hanners, Parker, Ward, Jelwood, Libba, Wines, Priddis, Keays (Barlow (FWD), JSmith, Davis)
RUC: Gawn, Goldy (MKing (FWD))
FWD: Hall (MID), Buddy, Tippett (RUC), Kerridge (MID), AMT (DEF), Petracca (MID) (Wells (MID), DRioli)

Trade options this week:
1. IN Pendles OUT Kerridge via DPP, IN MacPherson OUT Davis $101.7K left
2. IN Dusty OUT Kerridge, IN MacPherson OUT Davis $101.7K left $176.3K left

Which of these are best, or if there are better options than these trades?

4 more premos needed after this for full on field premo – 3 x DEF, 1 x MID.
(Banking on Mr Lyon bringing Barlow back in after 40 possies in the magoos).


In future do we downgrade to the cheapest players instead of people playing???
So instead of someone like MacPherson you go for someone that is $100k???


maybe after byes but not yet too risky to have non players during byes


Ok thank you
I wasn't sure because I heard someone say that everyone has a bunch of nobodies and I thought that was what I was meant to do
I am new to taking SuperCoach seriously


Later on that's a possibility. But for now MacPherson is as cheap as possible anyway so it should be a no brainer.


Is it worth trading r.gray (m6) or zaharakis (m7) out to get in priddis this week, or even trade libba (m8) out for him? Also, what do people think about getting rid of hartley/dbj or kerridge for wingard this week?


definetly hold onto gray i reckon, can wait another week on priddis as well be still relatively high, also would wait until chad shows some good form

Southern S

Awesome podcast guys.

Wayno lining up the lambs for slaughter was classic.

'Righto you lot single file behind Papley'

'Mitch Brown I said don't don't make eye contact'

Starts Chainsaw. Gold.


Loved it Southern!


brilliant as usual fellas, community ive got 21 trades left, is downgrading menadue to mcpherson worth it? im planning on trading in hopper next week also

Yeah I'd do that trade menadue is done, he just can't score anything decent anymore.


Is it best to get Crocker and MacPherson in this round

or get just one in and a premo?

When do you stop bring rookies in and concentrate on just upgrades?

Southern S

I'd just get in who has the best job security.

Probably MacP this week and maybe Hopper next week.

There is also talk of Mathieson lions mid making his debut this week.

Crocker only if you are desperate for a forward rookie, and Kaiden Brand if you need a backline rookie badly.

Brand may have better JS than Crocker but that is just a gut feeling.


Need the rookies to make cash for the upgrades. You stop bringing them in when you're at full premium


Thanks for the replies 🙂


Thanks poloko48. Yes, Hopper can wait a week.
Going Gresham to Crocker & Menapoo to Cox. Both open up DPP swings. Much needed with all the outs lately.


Is Docherty a must have at this price? If I go Gibson instead, I can afford to go Brown to Gibson and Menapoo to Macpherson.
If I go Docherty, it would have to be:
McDT – > Docherty & Menapoo -> Macpherson or Brown -> Docherty & Kerridge -> Macpherson.
I really like the idea of saying goodbye to Menapoo and Mitch Brown!


Don't trade Mitch Brown yet, many people are looking to trade him after his poor performance of only 29.
I would only trade him if you don't have any other options. I put him on a very low priority list.
You need to remember that Essendon last week played again the top and undefeated team, North Melbourne.
Playing Saints this week and Richmond the next, I think he can still score very well!


I've gone Kerridge to Docherty and Menapoo to Macpherson. This also brings back the DEF/FWD DPP for trades in the next few weeks


Should I upgrade Byrne Jones to Docherty or Kerridge to Zorko?


I'm going B-J to Doc Monty but only because of a Boyd/Laird bench this week. Very tempting to bring Zorko onboard – outscoring most mids


For all you lads in the league 'Low Expectations' keep up the good work, league rank of 5th!


Yes mate, it's starting to get exciting!


We're slowly climbing..

Aussie Pride

Sorry I've been bad of late or we'll be up higher


what are people thoughts on downgrading houli to brand and then going menadue to Macpherson


I would look to upgrade Houli to the likes of Docherty, Simpson, Gibson or even Pittard.
Menedue to MacPherson is a solid trade.

If you need a bit more cash next round, look to downgrade another rookie to Hopper if he performs.
And then upgrade a different rookie

The Mountain

no, brand is a terrible option in my opinion. Upgrade houli, but yes to your other trade


hey Jock love your work mate, currently sitting at 61st overall..and Im not sure if im going nuts but what do we think of Jordan Lewis as a stepping stone to an ultra premo before his bye was thinking kerridge to him this week with a low BE, has the lions, bombers and dees in the next 4 weeks at 440 odd k. what do we think community?


i'd say you're nuts but you're 61st overall so who am I to say Jordan Lewis yesterdays news?


Cut out the middle man stepping stone nonsense and go straight to a premium – rookies make more cash than mid-pricers and trades are gold, supercoach gold 🙂

The Ranger

Seriously considering the same move Froggy.
Plenty of value there, I've got enough trades, it works for my byes and if he gets back to being around the 520- 550K mark it's an easy trade to an ultra.

Chicken Dinner

Bigg Balls! – I like the move, have to make some alternative choices to win, if it suits structure for byes then go for it.

The Ranger

I've been looking back at some previous SC winners this week and looking at their trades.
You gotta be prepared to take a punt every now and then!


Who to bring in this week Priddis or Doch and who to dump Papley or Brown


Bring in Doch. Dump whoever has their average closer to their b.e


In terms of Captain choices, Dangerfield into Goldstein sounds like a good move this week. In the unlikely event Danger fails, Goldy should kill Kreuzer's replacement of either Gorringe or Wood (2nd ruckman Andrew Phillips is also injured with a hamstring). Its what Goldstein does best.


I'm thinking VC on Buddy, friday night and against his old mob at the G…. He's inform too! Could go big I reckon….

Southern S

I'd suggest doing a Hannebery, Parker, Gibson or Franklin Vice pick on friday night then going Dangerfield or Pendles for Captain if it fails.


brown-priddis via kerridge dpp and adams-enright leaves me only $6000, or brown-priddis and hewett-mcpherson which leaves me 269k? i need your help community is enright a good premo option? hes not scoring too bad for a defender but a little worried about his age


I wouldn't be looking toward Enright due to his age. Would definitely consider Brown-Priddis and then Hewett-MacPherson.

Southern S

He played 21 games last year and averaged 95 as he did throughout his career.

Can understand the reluctance though with him being almost 35.


IMO the latter. Use the 269 next week plus a.n.other cash cow to get someone like Docherty if you don't already have him.


i wanna be looking to get fallen premos i feel like docherty would be over priced next week


Really loving the return of Higgo's Quantum Team Mechanics. absolute ripper of a segment helping us all improve our teams


Community thoughts on this

Trade in: Hooper, Zorko
Trade out: Kerridge DBJ

Leaving me with this structure

Shaw, Simpson, Bartel, Laird, AMT, Adams (Ruggles, Hartley)

Danger, Parker, Ward, Gazza, Libba, Priddis, Hooper, Smith (Keays, Davis, Gore)

Nic Nat, Gawn (Grimley)

Dalhaus, Merrett, Hall, Zorko, Dustin, Wells (Peteracca, Cox)


Love that forward-line.

May be better going for MacPherson this week, then Hopper next. MacPherson will make plenty of $$ as a stepping stone to upgrade mids & def.


houli out for 12 weeks?????????????????????????


With B. Houli out for 10 weeks, a trade needs to happen. Already have J. Gibson, R. Laird and H. Shaw, looking for someone like S. Docherty, K. Simpson or J. Bartel.
Will also most likely be trading C. Mills for D. MacPherson.



I like Simpson or Rance.

Mills to MacPherson is a great trade.


Who should i get out of kaiden brand or bailey williams this week.

The Beard

Anyone know the B/E of

Davis –
M Brown (Bomber) –
Hewett –
Meandue –


use footywire


why not


Williams only played 1 game so stupid to bring him in early. He only got a game last week due to Zaine Cordy picking up an injury in training on Thurs. JS not great.

mungos men

Jock and Higgo’s laughs after Jock Ripping bucks a new one! GOLD

Big Balls

When will info about live podcast Friday night come out ???

I N Pieman

What a ball tearer of a Bucks spray Jock old mate. And thoroughly deserved. He is a clueless Spud. Although I did detect a bit "why did I trade Pendles" in the spray. And to a man that is most unlikely to play this week. There many have been a press conference about him recently as well. And to those that are looking at bring Hopper in this week hold your horses. He played against a train wreck last week. Have a closer look against the dogs. That will give you a much more accurate read. I don't forget if you do grab him during upgrade season it's probably going to set you back a week on the quest to full premo.

Shake n bake

So Ablett 99% confirmed out do we all think it's only goin to be 1 week! Have this feeling it might be more.


Hey guys I have a bit dilemma and would love for everyone to give me some advise moving forward for this weekend.

I have Rockliff on hold in my Mid and I also have Dean Gore who is not getting a game. I have cash to spare in the kitty so I was wondering if you could help me make the best decision out of the ones I am thinking in order to give me some cover for if Ablett get's rested, also so I don't have donut on my bench. Alternatively I am open to other ideas if you have something better you can think of.

Option 1: Upgrade Brown – Walters; Downgrade Rockliff – Macpherson (Ablett on the bench for Macpherson if rested plenty of cash to spare for following week for a double upgrade)
Option 2 : Upgrade Brown – Walters; Sideways Rockliff – Zorko (lose some cash, Ablett on the bench if rested with no cover in the mid but a step in the right direction for full premo however will only have 7k left in the bank for the following week with Dean Gore still on the bench not generating cash)
Option 3: Upgrade Brown – Zorko; Upgrade Gore to Macpherson to cover for Ablett and generate some cash through Macpherson then the following week can downgrade/upgrade for Walters for the fwd line and then should have Rocky back in the Mid as well.

I think the best option for the overall rankings this week is Option 2 also I should beat my opponent this week this way however I don't want to sideways trade Rockliff for a second time this year and also I am concerned about the lack of cash left over… Probably smartest option would be Option 3??

Any help would be much appreciated!!

Southern S

Wouldn't touch walters for that price, Jordan Lewis is safer I feel, and even Marc Murphy.


Have 537k to trade in a midfielder for Kerridge
Mitchell, Shuey, Boak, Shiel, Scully, Bont or Mundy
