Tophawk

Hello community!

I bring you great news from the West!! It is absolutely bucketing down in Perth at the moment. Already 40 mm of rain has fallen in the last 2 hours. Hail and squalls forecast for tonight's match between Freo and Richmond. Barlow is almost a certainty to be recalled and take his place in the side. Perhaps the supercoach gods are going to smile on us for once.

Cheers

Sarah

Yeah not convinced deBeor not named in peels side either after consecutive 30+ games, Barlow could very well be match day emergency

Steeeve

Barlow gone from my side regardless. Not putting up with this bs every week. And luckily not munching on any donuts.

Pman35

Hi Jock where did you get that from in respect to Barlow playing for Peel from? Also thoughts on Barlow to Montagna and Adams to Docherty or is Macpherson a must have? Thinking if I miss him this week then I can pick B Dailey or R Mathison next week when they are on the bubble, thoughts?

gator59

Going to be a great spectacle then

Tophawk

Its going to be water polo match me thinks. LOL

gator59

don't worry me, I have no one from either side
Maybe you should organize some naked women and turn it into a mud wrestling match lol

I N Pieman

My rain dance is working!!! More more more ⛈⛈⛈

bUCKET__

10 on field rookies. But Hewett's 87 is a good start!

gator59

I have 9 on field and hewett's 87 is a great start.. gives us a little faith

Boltons Blues

Menadue cant get a touch in the blistering sunshine, how is he going to get a touch in the wet?
oh god help me

Anthony

Everyone comfortable in loopholing parkers 120?

bUCKET__

Goldy against Gorringe will get somewhere between 120 – 200 points. But always a chance he could get injured or something. Tough call!

Tophawk

I am taking Parker's score. That will do for me after last week's captain shocker. 240 points is like gold with all these rookies on field. You just can't afford to be too greedy in that situation. I am starting Mc Pherson on the bench with the E on him. If he does well, then I will take Keays off the field and loophole him. If he spuds, then Keays will remain onfield.

red5

Keep him I reckon
I had Danger last week as VC and then change to Gawn. that turned out awesome.

Cliffy

Hey guys, a few dilemmas:

Firstly, who to play for my two rookie spots in the Midfield this week (one of those spots to cover Ablett) out of J.Smith, MacPherson and Davis?

And secondly, am I better off playing Hartley by trading out Wells or Barlow to a Forward Premo and hence avoid playing Menadue, or playing Menadue by trading out Houli to a Defense Premo, and avoid playing Hartley?

BillyB

Smith for sure, then MacPherson but it's almost the luck of the draw as to which one will score higher.

I'd keep Menadue off the ground if i could afford to. However, hold Barlow. Rumors abound he might get a call up, if not he wont lose any cash and send him packing next week. Wells' time is up for those who had him, served his coaches well, bank that $180k and turn Menadue into a fallen premo ASAP.

Cliffy

Cheers mate. I might still wait until the matches tonight since who I have in mind to trade in for either Houli or Wells play later tonight.

The smart choice would be to wait for late changes for those games before I make the trade, last thing I want to do is make the call too early. 😛

Cliffy

And there's last minute carnage

Mac

Hey guys, I have a question for the community.

Most of us who have seen Richmond games know Menadue loves the uncontested possessions. Never goes in and gets it himself. I'm wondering with huge rain expected for the Freo V Tigers game whether Menadue will have any impact as it will most likely be a contested/scrappy game of footy? Would it be wise to trade him to Montagna?

Bigballsboys

Get him out!!

Mac

How many trades are people left with at the moment?

Bigboysballs

18

anthonyc12

21

bloke

14 :O

Can't. Stop. Trading. Hahahaha…ahhhh bugger.

The Ranger

20 after this week.

Derek

Still have 22. Used 2 this week

red5

19
How many should you have ????

DankMemes

i think 20 is about par at round 9

red5

thanks

Nicholas

16 but have 400k and next week double upgrade leaves me 2 off full premo

min0008

20

JDP

I'm just outside the top 10,000 & need some help to hopefully get a few up in my leagues.

I'm torn between Dahlhouse, Zorko, Montagna & Dusty. They all playing well but thoughts on which one.

Cheers

Bigboysballs

They are all potentially in the top 6 to have at the end of the year, should be aiming to have them all

Sully321

IMO Zorko

Northernsoul74

I'll be looking at Lids in the next week or 2.

Sully321

Even if Barlow does play is it even worth keeping him?
He is obviously not in Ross' plans for the future and will probably be dropped again if he plays a bad game

Bigballsboys

Who to put captain this week?
Danger, Gawn, Simpson, shaw?

winters

well my punt on jordan lewis didnt work this week but with the hawks having brisbane melbourne and essendon in the next 3 can hopefully pull 3 big ones out

Northernsoul74

Yeah bringing in Gibson wasn't great for me but only 1 game.

The Ranger

Menadue could actually get a minus score if he plays!

Deimos

Out: Kolodjashnij / Adams
In : zorko / Docherty

And doni take Parker 120 or
go danger / Shaw

Deimos

Out: Kolodjashnij or Adams
In : zorko or Docherty

Who to trade?

And do I take Parkers 120
or
C : danger or Shaw

Jeremy

Had Hanners as VC, but 110 doesn't quite cut it. Danger or Goldy for captain?

Cliffy

Same dilemma myself mate.

Benjamima Puddleduck

hope you went goldy

Cameron

Ruggles late in bloody hell traded him for brand to avoid a donut wow

HOLLA

Same

Mac

Barlow will not play tonight, will play for Peel.

tom

looks like I'll be going Menadue to Montagna now. Never putting Menadue onfield

Davo

Guys, quick one – DBJ or Ruggles on field? Thanks community.

cattery

Danger or Gawn captain?

hedski

Loopholing the rug against mitch brown.
Vc danger goldy cap.
Tossing up between smith and keays on field might go keays.
Gotta play menapoo now F you ross.

breakevens

Ruggles late change in

hedski

Yeah got the E on him. Can swing adams on for brown take rugs score.

Vigilante
breakevens

Gawn, Shaw, Danger or Ward who to put the big captain on

breakevens

LATE CHANGE
Tom Lonergan out
TOM RUGGLES IN

I N Pieman

Ross Lyon C U Next Tuesday! If you looking to follow Barlow today
http://www.wafl.com.au/games/view/10644

cashcows

Well, looks like it's time for barlow to go.

Better Luck Nxt Yr

Barlow has 14 disposals and a goal to Qtr time for Peel.

Sands

Make that 26 diposals 7 tackles 2 goals at half time

breakevens

Big Ross tanking?

tuxCS

COLLINGWOOD ARE APPLYING FORWARD PRESSURE, IM SO PROUD

siri

Agree…. not disappointed this time catching a flight down from sydney

Lucky i didnt put the C on danger…. go pies… bring it on doggies

Tophawk

Earth calling the cats……….Is there anybody home??? Players still on the bus I think. What a disgraceful first quarter.

Neverweaken

Was thinking to trade in Gibson of defence as Boyd suckling Adams and Ruggles on the pine. Bit the bullet and brought in Simpson instead. So have to hold off on Pendles til next week. Tippett has started to justify holding him since start of the year. One good decision yay. And now Ruggles plays and Pendles is killing them.
Got to keep smiling through the pain!!!

Northernsoul74

Darcy McPherson done his medial in his knee.

Derek

McGovern only 26 at half time, this might mean I have to put Menadue on the field…….. Again

Derek

McPherson done a knee. He's gone.

Put him onfield ahead of davis

Thomas

How long will he be out for?

Tophawk

What are danger, jelwood and ruggles on?

breakevens

Full time
Danger 81
Selwood 73
Ruggles 60

Tophawk

Wow. Danger's DE must have been poor. He tonned up in fantasy.

breakevens

Macpherson not looking good

yii

Why aren't people putting the C on Nic Nat??
He is against no ruckman i reckon he's a good chance to go big

gator59

Michael Barlow's WAFL stats:44 disposals, 13 tackles, 7 inside 50s, & 3 of the game's 8 goals.
Fair to say he wants that recall

yii

Does Ross Lyon not see these stats, biggest joke he doesnt get a game

gator59

He f$%^*d my saints and he'll do the same at freo

Tophawk

Barlow deserves his spot in that dockers side everyday of the week. Lyon is not objective in his team selection, because if he was, he would select him purely on elite performance. Its a disgrace. Clowns like Dawson and Sheridan get picked ahead of him. Seriously?? What a tosser you are Ross.

Tophawk

I meant Taberner, not Sheridan.

Derek

200SC?

tom

Anyone know the extent of McPhersons' injury? Seems to be a loophole option now.

Redgumwon

From the AFL site suspected medial ligament strain

Bells E Bubb

My ability to pick EXACTLY the wrong captain week in, week out is uncanny.
Danger this week.
Gawn the week before.
I am psychic, but not in a good way.

Nicholas

Take macpharsons score or punt menapoo

Redgumwon

MacPharson's score

yellownblack

hey community

do you think tippa will score more than ruggles? can't decide what to do…..

thanks,

Redgumwon

I think it will be close but I'd be taking Tippa's points. I've got Tippa starting on the ground. I've got Brown on the ground in the forward line but I'm going to McGovern's 78 points as the emg

Nathan

Is it worth holding Barlow for this week to see if Ross will come to his senses and pick and if not trade him out then? Or should I just forget about him and bring in zorko this week?

Redgumwon

Get Zorko the great asap

Pman35

Bartlows done all he could in the last 2 weeks and been BOG both games in the WAFL, I'm holding for one more week and upgrading Menapoo to Montagna instead. Next week hopefully can sit on trades with Wells, Hall and hopefully Barlow back which will be better than 2 trades.

Nathan

Problem is for me I can't afford to upgrade menadue or Mitch brown to Montagna or someone of the like. Atm I have both brown and menadue on the field. If I trade out Barlow I don't have to play one of those two on the field.

Pman35

Then if that's the case I'd swap Barlow for Zorko. I brought Zorko in 4 weeks ago and he's given me a 100+ every week, he is a Gun.

Tommo09

Do we get rid of MacPherson?

Pman35

Don't waste a trade, use him for Captaincy loophole for rest of season.

Average Joe

Doubt he will be out for rest of the season

Derek

You have to

Joe

Should I use the emergency loophole to take Davis' score of 66 or go with Keays?

breakevens

Keays for me

Tommo09

Playing 11 rookies!!!
Wow!!!

HOLLA

Was that DBJ hyper-extending his knee/leg?

Boltons Blues

yeah, another bites the dust im thinking, looked nasty
Looks like ill have a fully premo defence (when Laird comes back) before any other line (not including ruck)

Shags

Shaw or Goldy as Captain

Nicholas

Think im gonna risk menapoo instead of macpharson at worst I lose 10 points

Redgumwon

That's ballsy for sure

Hawks

Captain decision…

Who to select out of-
Goldy, rucking against non-names
Zorko, hasn't failed yet
Dusty, in the flood against Freo

Also, do I take a 66 from Davis or stick with Keays?

Jess_coach

Goldy lol

pitch72

keays, use the '75' rule bud.

Nicholas

Also Kerridge and DBJ to Priddis and Zorko bang bang probable this week!!!

HOLLA

Sweet i had josh smith on the field. Aaron Young on the bench….87 with a 1/4 to go. :/

HOLLA

114+ full time. Farrrrrk!!!

Tommo09

What will DBJ's BE be after this round if he gets 60?

Andrew

Think pretty high, around 90
