How are you getting on!

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.


    I N Pieman · 21/05/2016 at 09:33

    Won't get my hopes up yet. This is Ross we are dealing with

      Tophawk · 21/05/2016 at 09:37

      Yeah, Ross might just dig his heels in and rebel by not naming him. But I am quietly confident that this time, Rosco will have to bend over and succumb…and play Barlow!!

    Sarah · 21/05/2016 at 11:16

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

    Steeeve · 21/05/2016 at 11:59

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

    jockreynolds · 21/05/2016 at 12:27

    Barlow playing for Peel – just been confirmed. BUGGER

      I N Pieman · 21/05/2016 at 12:33


      Pman35 · 21/05/2016 at 12:39

      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 · 21/05/2016 at 09:27

Going to be a great spectacle then

    Tophawk · 21/05/2016 at 09:29

    Its going to be water polo match me thinks. LOL

      gator59 · 21/05/2016 at 09:35

      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 · 21/05/2016 at 10:06

        that would be some quality viewing Gator

          gator59 · 21/05/2016 at 10:32

          Every man and their dog would be tuning in to watch Pieman
          maybe Higgo could let Cathy play!!

I N Pieman · 21/05/2016 at 09:32

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

bUCKET__ · 21/05/2016 at 09:42

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

    gator59 · 21/05/2016 at 09:45

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

Boltons Blues · 21/05/2016 at 09:43

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 · 21/05/2016 at 09:45

Everyone comfortable in loopholing parkers 120?

    bUCKET__ · 21/05/2016 at 09:52

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

    I N Pieman · 21/05/2016 at 09:54

    Take that

    Tophawk · 21/05/2016 at 10:03

    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.

    jockreynolds · 21/05/2016 at 12:28

    Lock it in Ant

    red5 · 21/05/2016 at 12:43

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

Cliffy · 21/05/2016 at 10:08

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 · 21/05/2016 at 10:29

    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 · 21/05/2016 at 11:38

      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 · 21/05/2016 at 11:38

        And there's last minute carnage

Mac · 21/05/2016 at 10:19

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 · 21/05/2016 at 11:00

    Get him out!!

Mac · 21/05/2016 at 10:22

How many trades are people left with at the moment?

    Bigboysballs · 21/05/2016 at 10:48


    anthonyc12 · 21/05/2016 at 11:03


    I N Pieman · 21/05/2016 at 11:03

    19 after this week

    will gates · 21/05/2016 at 11:16

    13 but only 3 short of prem was2 but discounting wells

    bloke · 21/05/2016 at 11:19

    14 :O

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

    The Ranger · 21/05/2016 at 11:52

    20 after this week.

      Derek · 21/05/2016 at 11:59

      Still have 22. Used 2 this week

    jockreynolds · 21/05/2016 at 12:28


    red5 · 21/05/2016 at 12:46

    How many should you have ????

      DankMemes · 21/05/2016 at 12:53

      i think 20 is about par at round 9

        red5 · 21/05/2016 at 13:26


    Nicholas · 21/05/2016 at 16:41

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

    min0008 · 21/05/2016 at 22:56


JDP · 21/05/2016 at 10:32

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.


    Bigboysballs · 21/05/2016 at 10:50

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

    Sully321 · 21/05/2016 at 10:50

    IMO Zorko

      will gates · 21/05/2016 at 11:41

      all 4 cant name at least 5 better so must have all..which one of wingard buddy hall wells greeneharvey rioli stinger Hogan none in my book but have I missed one

        will gates · 21/05/2016 at 11:44

        barlow gunston josh k roo tipps

    Northernsoul74 · 21/05/2016 at 12:10

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

Sully321 · 21/05/2016 at 10:43

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

    I N Pieman · 21/05/2016 at 11:08

    Been pondering the same thought Sully. If he doesn't play today I'm getting rid of him. If he does & gets dropped again I'll get rid of him. Then I'll get rid of Ross Lyon

      will gates · 21/05/2016 at 11:30

      Correct pies lose lose situation plays well no good for ross to give dees no.1 pick for hoges if spuds perfect for ross could be part of Hogan deal .Heard today from Essendon member Hurley going to dees any one know more…perfect fit there Iwould imagine particularly losing hogan

Bigballsboys · 21/05/2016 at 10:55

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

    I N Pieman · 21/05/2016 at 11:18


      Derek · 21/05/2016 at 12:00

      I'm going VC danger with Shaw C

        Beezneez · 21/05/2016 at 13:19

        Ditto – C loophole with Danger and Shaw. Currently have C on Goldy but if Danger scores 120-130 will put C on Adams with E on Shaw.

winters · 21/05/2016 at 11:32

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 · 21/05/2016 at 12:11

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

      jockreynolds · 21/05/2016 at 12:29

      same mate – bought in Gibbo and Doc. Hope doc can get it done for me

The Ranger · 21/05/2016 at 11:47

Menadue could actually get a minus score if he plays!

Deimos · 21/05/2016 at 12:19

Out: Kolodjashnij / Adams
In : zorko / Docherty

And doni take Parker 120 or
go danger / Shaw

    Deimos · 21/05/2016 at 12:22

    Out: Kolodjashnij or Adams
    In : zorko or Docherty

    Who to trade?

    And do I take Parkers 120
    C : danger or Shaw

Jeremy · 21/05/2016 at 12:19

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

    Cliffy · 21/05/2016 at 12:21

    Same dilemma myself mate.

    jockreynolds · 21/05/2016 at 12:30

    They way I've been going with the C I'd take the 110!

    Benjamima Puddleduck · 22/05/2016 at 00:26

    hope you went goldy

Cameron · 21/05/2016 at 12:26

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

    I N Pieman · 21/05/2016 at 12:48

    Bloody hell. At Q time last night that was looking genius. It's a cruel game

    HOLLA · 21/05/2016 at 13:49


Mac · 21/05/2016 at 12:48

Barlow will not play tonight, will play for Peel.

    tom · 21/05/2016 at 12:52

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

    I N Pieman · 21/05/2016 at 12:53

    Devastated. Most obvious case of tanking in history

Davo · 21/05/2016 at 12:52

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

cattery · 21/05/2016 at 12:57

Danger or Gawn captain?

hedski · 21/05/2016 at 13:00

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 · 21/05/2016 at 13:17

    Ruggles late change in

      hedski · 21/05/2016 at 14:08

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

Vigilante · 21/05/2016 at 13:01
Barlow isnt named?

breakevens · 21/05/2016 at 13:14

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

breakevens · 21/05/2016 at 13:15

Tom Lonergan out

I N Pieman · 21/05/2016 at 13:46

Ross Lyon C U Next Tuesday! If you looking to follow Barlow today

    cashcows · 21/05/2016 at 13:50

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

      Better Luck Nxt Yr · 21/05/2016 at 14:21

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

        Sands · 21/05/2016 at 14:51

        Make that 26 diposals 7 tackles 2 goals at half time

          I N Pieman · 21/05/2016 at 14:52

          2 out of his teams 3 goals. Why are we trading this guy again. FFS

            cashcows · 21/05/2016 at 14:54

            More like how is this guy still stuck in the twos after his last game?

    breakevens · 21/05/2016 at 14:55

    Big Ross tanking?

    Tommo · 21/05/2016 at 19:34

    Just a lazy 44 disposals

tuxCS · 21/05/2016 at 14:12


    siri · 21/05/2016 at 17:00

    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 · 21/05/2016 at 14:17

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

Neverweaken · 21/05/2016 at 14:48

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 · 21/05/2016 at 15:41

Darcy McPherson done his medial in his knee.

Derek · 21/05/2016 at 15:42

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

Derek · 21/05/2016 at 15:43

McPherson done a knee. He's gone.

Put him onfield ahead of davis

    Thomas · 21/05/2016 at 16:31

    How long will he be out for?

Tophawk · 21/05/2016 at 16:07

What are danger, jelwood and ruggles on?

    breakevens · 21/05/2016 at 16:12

    Full time
    Danger 81
    Selwood 73
    Ruggles 60

      Tophawk · 21/05/2016 at 16:16

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

breakevens · 21/05/2016 at 16:11

Macpherson not looking good

yii · 21/05/2016 at 16:15

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 · 21/05/2016 at 16:18

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 · 21/05/2016 at 16:21

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

      gator59 · 21/05/2016 at 16:30

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

    Tophawk · 21/05/2016 at 16:29

    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 · 21/05/2016 at 16:29

      I meant Taberner, not Sheridan.

      will gates · 21/05/2016 at 18:16

      44 disposals today for peel and 3 goals

    Derek · 21/05/2016 at 16:37


tom · 21/05/2016 at 16:24

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

    Redgumwon · 21/05/2016 at 18:17

    From the AFL site suspected medial ligament strain

Bells E Bubb · 21/05/2016 at 16:39

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 · 21/05/2016 at 16:41

Take macpharsons score or punt menapoo

    Redgumwon · 21/05/2016 at 17:32

    MacPharson's score

yellownblack · 21/05/2016 at 16:54

hey community

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


    Redgumwon · 21/05/2016 at 17:32

    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 · 21/05/2016 at 17:05

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 · 21/05/2016 at 17:29

    Get Zorko the great asap

    Pman35 · 21/05/2016 at 17:45

    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 · 21/05/2016 at 17:55

      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 · 21/05/2016 at 18:37

        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 · 21/05/2016 at 17:37

Do we get rid of MacPherson?

    Pman35 · 21/05/2016 at 17:46

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

      Average Joe · 22/05/2016 at 11:44

      Doubt he will be out for rest of the season

    Derek · 21/05/2016 at 22:21

    You have to

Joe · 21/05/2016 at 17:47

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

    breakevens · 21/05/2016 at 18:00

    Keays for me

Tommo09 · 21/05/2016 at 18:01

Playing 11 rookies!!!

stavros · 21/05/2016 at 18:15

Barlow 26 kicks 18 handballs 3 goals for peel probably not enough for firsts according to the boss ross .Needs at least 10 more kicks and 10 hand balls and maybe a couple of goals too…Please Ross trade him to dees could go well with Hurley

HOLLA · 21/05/2016 at 18:16

Was that DBJ hyper-extending his knee/leg?

    Boltons Blues · 21/05/2016 at 18:19

    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 · 21/05/2016 at 18:20

Shaw or Goldy as Captain

Nicholas · 21/05/2016 at 18:27

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

    Redgumwon · 21/05/2016 at 18:36

    That's ballsy for sure

Nicholas · 21/05/2016 at 18:30

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

Hawks · 21/05/2016 at 18:30

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 · 22/05/2016 at 00:55

    Goldy lol

    pitch72 · 22/05/2016 at 07:45

    keays, use the '75' rule bud.

HOLLA · 21/05/2016 at 18:34

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

    HOLLA · 21/05/2016 at 19:16

    114+ full time. Farrrrrk!!!

Tommo09 · 21/05/2016 at 18:34

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

    Andrew · 22/05/2016 at 21:28

    Think pretty high, around 90

johnno2908 · 21/05/2016 at 19:02

The Chad pushing his case for a possible trade in this week

    Nicholas · 21/05/2016 at 19:15

    Too risky he has 3 goals that is why he can not do that against every side. I would like to see a tonne from him without relying on goals

      Southern S · 22/05/2016 at 12:56

      Wingard always relies on a couple of goals though for a good score, but I agree there's nothing impressive about that score.

      20 touches with 10 contested but only went at 65% efficiency, a few clangers. Fairly poor.

Ydhd · 21/05/2016 at 19:12


    HOLLA · 21/05/2016 at 19:17


The Beard · 21/05/2016 at 19:25

I think DBJ returned in the 4th? I missed it but it appears his score went up anyone confirm? I'm hoping so, I'd almost leave him as D6 for most the year.

    Boltons Blues · 21/05/2016 at 19:36

    yeap went back on the ground, didnt look to be moving freely though
    they had a stack of injuries/niggles during the game, so im thinking he went on for pure rotations

Nicholas · 21/05/2016 at 20:43

Omg I should have followed my original plan and gotten Docherty now I am getting punished for that

ddoo · 21/05/2016 at 21:07

Ruggles 60 vs Brown?????

poloko48 · 21/05/2016 at 21:24

Goldy going big – 121 at 3/4 time

Neverweaken · 21/05/2016 at 21:42

And at the very last minute took the C off Goldie and onto Shaw.

    Tophawk · 21/05/2016 at 21:53

    Neverweaken mate. Shaw is a good choice too.

    Shags · 21/05/2016 at 21:54

    I took it off Shaw onto Goldy in the last minute happy with my decision.

      Tophawk · 21/05/2016 at 22:03

      Agreed!! Goldy is back.

        Boltons Blues · 21/05/2016 at 22:06

        Goldy is back? Against Gorringe? And hes back? really?

          Leeds17 · 22/05/2016 at 00:54

          Tends to put in solid scores against decent rucks and smash the poor ones, remember what he did to McKernan last season…

    Beagz · 22/05/2016 at 19:06

    Stroke of genius.

      Neverweaken · 22/05/2016 at 19:15

      Never in doubt.
      2450 this week

Smote · 21/05/2016 at 22:00

Lachie Neale has been overusing the handball something chronic tonight. Ross Lyon better give him a spell in the twos.

    smart as s · 22/05/2016 at 00:08

    that has to b a joke, couldnt b more impressed with neale

Tophawk · 21/05/2016 at 22:22

Micheal Barlow could have helped Lachie Neale to get the dockers in a much more competitive position in this match.

No way!! Toss (Ross) Lyon knows better.

History repeats.

Boltons Blues · 21/05/2016 at 22:23

Docherty, Simpson, Goldy, Byrne and Cripps, nice

Sitting 1570 with 7 left (Shiel, Shaw, AMT, Gawn, BenKen, Petracca and Libba)

How is everyone else sitting?

    poloko48 · 21/05/2016 at 22:40

    1442 from 14, had VC on Goldy with C on DRioli (donut). Have Gawn, Wagner, Petracca, Libba, Heater, Ward, Hartley, AMT to come. Projected score 2153. Fingers crossed no ugly surprises tomorrow!

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 21/05/2016 at 22:40

    Remarkably/astonishingly fairly similar.
    1673 with those same 6 to come. Don't have libba.

    MY TWO CENTS · 21/05/2016 at 22:48

    1400 with 10 to come.
    C on goldy.

    min0008 · 21/05/2016 at 22:52

    On 1464/14 and made Danger C and Byrne as emergency but can't loophole him.

    Have Kennedy, Petracca, Martin, Shaw, Libba, AMT and Brown to play

    Dean · 21/05/2016 at 22:58

    Sitting on 1435/14 played, Captain on Goldy. Got Libba, Ward, Rich, Kennedy, Hartley, Brown, Tippa & Petracca to play.

    Its going to be a very tough week for me to make the average I am guessing..

    Good luck to all.

Steeeve · 21/05/2016 at 22:27

Who had the C on Goldy?

    MY TWO CENTS · 21/05/2016 at 22:30

    I did. What did he end up with?

      poloko48 · 21/05/2016 at 22:32

      Yep he finished on 173

        Harley · 21/05/2016 at 22:53

        Yep! Took it off shaw last minute 🙂

    Dean · 21/05/2016 at 22:53

    I did thank God as my VC was on Danger

      Steeeve · 21/05/2016 at 23:54

      Same. Cheering!

    Shags · 22/05/2016 at 06:08

    Yep took it off Shaw with 43 sec remaining.

    pitch72 · 22/05/2016 at 07:43

    yep, vc on danger, absolutely monstered it…

    Holty · 22/05/2016 at 15:23

    had it on Goldy until 5min before game and ended up taking Parkers score. Cant complain really considering all the carnage with captain selections this year

TRIGGER HAPPY · 21/05/2016 at 22:29

Have i finally weathered the storm or just in the eye?
Best Sat of the year for me in SC with every premo except danger tonning up welcome back robbie gray.
houli to doc hit the mark
Longeran scores a 90 second week in a row could he be a keeper? Surely not.
I have about 10 rooks on the ground who scored rook scores except kerridge who also tons up.
Also with the number of outs passed on macpherson so got away with one there.
And took parkers vc instead of whacking the c on danger.
Probably all turn to crap tomorrow but first time i have been able to smile in regards to supercoach since rd 1.
So i'll take that as tomorrow is a new day and we all know how quickly it can turn and go pear shaped.

    Dean · 21/05/2016 at 22:52

    Thats quite good considering, I think the vast majority of players were forced to play qite a few rookies, I sure know I had to as I had Adams, Laird, Hall, Wells, Barlow all on the pine.

    Good luck tomorrow mate.

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 21/05/2016 at 23:04

      Thanks dean.
      Been horrendous this year every week 1-2 premo usually pods missing.
      $3.3m bench last week
      $3.5m this week before trades.
      Put some faith back in your selections a day like today.
      As i said haven't had much to smile about so will enjoy the moment.

Dean · 21/05/2016 at 22:48

What are people scoring after ALL Saturday games. I had a shocker of a week with Adams, Laird, GAJ, Hall, Wells & Barlow keeping the bench warm.

I am seriously struggling this week im only on 1435 after 14 played and captain was Goldy which helped a little. The vast majority of my left over players are rookies as I have Libba, Ward, Rich, Kennedy, Hartley, Brown, Tippa & Petracca to play on Sunday.

Rocksta · 21/05/2016 at 22:59

Ross Lyon is such an Arsehole!

Had to sideways trade Barlow to avoid a Doughnut which made me miss out on bringing Docherty in. What's worse, Ross Lyon simply will not be able to justify not bringing Barlow back next week after his past 2 performances for Peel. He should never have been dropped in the first place.

Waste of a trade!

JAYZ · 21/05/2016 at 22:59

Barlow 44 possessions, 13 tackles, 3 goals 8 inside 50s 2 hitouts. Will get dropped to Peel Thunder reserves

Rocksta · 21/05/2016 at 23:12

Should Still get around 2200 with Laird, Wells, Ablett and Hall on the bench. Pretty happy with that.

And no, I didn't have the C on Goldy.

Southern S · 22/05/2016 at 00:03

Have managed to keep my captain's scores above 220 but not this week Danger burnt me with a 172.

MacPherson injured, suns can't catch a break with injuries, neither can I!

Glad I stuck to my original trades and got Docherty (135), Byrne (112) and Kerridge (105) also highlights in a week ravaged with injuries.

De Goey got another good score of 89 will end up making some ok cash and is one of the better mid pricers this year after a slow start.

After benching Jarryd Lyons for a couple of weeks he came good with a 96 just when I needed it, surely can't lose his spot at the moment but who knows.

Boltons blues · 22/05/2016 at 00:22

Who wins from here
Shiel, shaw +87 points (me)
Hopper, shaw C (my cousin)

    Boltons blues · 22/05/2016 at 00:22

    Wouldn't mind shaw going off with concusion tomorrow haha
    Or hopper stinking it up would also be good

Loop · 22/05/2016 at 06:10

Port will have a couple of new faces in their back line next week. Enjoy your holiday Jonas. I hope its for six weeks.

Tommo09 · 22/05/2016 at 08:10

1709 with Libba, Brown, Shaw, Tippa, Petracca, Kennedy, Keays
What will I get do you think?

    Tophawk · 22/05/2016 at 09:54

    A very good score for starters. I reckon with many rookies left to play (5 out of 7) they will probably average you 80 at best. Thats 400 points. Then let's say 100 for Libba and 120 for Shaw. That would give you 620 points. Around 2330 is where you will end up IMO.

    Let me know how close my prediction is after today's games mate. Cheers.

      Tommo09 · 22/05/2016 at 10:33

      Thank you
      Doubt I will get to 2300
      I was thinking about 2100 with my luck

      Tommo09 · 22/05/2016 at 19:46

      Got to 2412

Clarky · 22/05/2016 at 09:23

I have a dilemma. I have Kennedy on the pine along with De Goey, who i used for E loophole. There is serious doubt whether Zach Merrett will play. Kennedy plays before him and i can't put the E on Kennedy in case Merrett does play and then i would get the lowest of the emergencies. Is there a way i can cover for merrett without taking the lowest score if he plays?

    will gates · 22/05/2016 at 09:35

    doesn't make sense merret doesn't play you get degoeys score kennedy doesn't count

      Clarky · 22/05/2016 at 09:44

      Oh i forgot to mention, i have Wells on field, i used him as loophole, so i put emergency on De Goey to cover for Wells. Im trying to figure out how to cover for him in the event he does not play.

        Clarky · 22/05/2016 at 09:44

        him being Merrett*

fedd · 22/05/2016 at 09:37

forget kennedy you get degoey anyway whats the problem

    Clarky · 22/05/2016 at 09:44

    Look above

hedski · 22/05/2016 at 10:04

Have menapooed my way to 1451 (goldy cap) with Shaw Libba Keays Gawn BenKen Petracca Zaha Tippa and Brown to play. Hopefully get over 2200.
I have the choice of taking the Rugs 60 points or playing Brown vs St Kilda…..hmm which Brown will turn up this week?

    Tommo09 · 22/05/2016 at 10:55


Simo · 22/05/2016 at 10:07

Struggling with captain choice . Thinking either Gawn or Shaw ….. Thoughts community?

    breakevens · 22/05/2016 at 10:48

    Gawn for me

      siri · 22/05/2016 at 12:09

      Shaw for me

        DankMemes · 22/05/2016 at 13:12

        who is your vc?

Locked and Loaded · 22/05/2016 at 10:44

Gawn, Ward or Shaw Captain?? Cheers

    I N Pieman · 22/05/2016 at 11:01

    I'd go Shaw. He loves playing at spotless stadium

I N Pieman · 22/05/2016 at 11:04

25k grabbed macperson this week. Ouch

    'Don't Blush Baby' · 22/05/2016 at 11:09

    Is it season ending ?

      I N Pieman · 22/05/2016 at 11:22

      Medial ligament. 8 weeks minimum I'd suggest

        hedski · 22/05/2016 at 11:36

        Looks like a loophole then.

Fevolution25 · 22/05/2016 at 11:06

Gray and Priddis welcome my team

    'Don't Blush Baby' · 22/05/2016 at 11:08

    Agree,I don't think Gray will play next though, might get a week suspension

      I N Pieman · 22/05/2016 at 11:25

      Gray will have the 50 in price for another week. Dont have to get him yet

John · 22/05/2016 at 11:14

Who to put captain.

Zorko, Dahlhaus or Ward?

    Tommo · 22/05/2016 at 11:17

    Zorko for me

Tommo · 22/05/2016 at 11:16

Kennedy or Tracca on field? This question stumps me every week

    I N Pieman · 22/05/2016 at 11:33

    Both should score well against the lions. Petrecca more fun to watch

    Average Joe · 22/05/2016 at 11:47

    Kennedy for mine

    Ratitat · 22/05/2016 at 11:51

    toss a coin. Petracca hasn't had a stand out performance yet, so he could be due for one and Kennedy is in decent form and scoring well enough.

    johnno2908 · 22/05/2016 at 12:13

    You have a choice? Lucky you. I would go kennedy. Has a couple of tons to his name and has scored around 80 the last few weeks.

Nervous Coach · 22/05/2016 at 12:04

Zorko or Heater for Captain. Who is more likely to score 120+.

    Neverweaken · 22/05/2016 at 12:57

    Zorko the safe option Heater the go hard or go home option.
    From someone who took the C off Goldie and put it on Heater. So hoping for a 140

Cliffy · 22/05/2016 at 12:22

Who to captain for Draft C today guys?

Viney or Riewoldt?

And also currently sitting at 1,276 with my first C fail in a while in Danger yesterday and a few underperformers. Still Martin, Gawn, Petracca, Kennedy, Libba, Ward, Shaw, Tippa and Brown to come, can I still salvage something this round community with who I have left?

    Cliffy · 22/05/2016 at 12:22

    *few underperformers in rookies

The Ranger · 22/05/2016 at 12:24

Having a pretty ordinary week…weighing up whether to gamble on Gawn with the big C or take the conservative option and stick it on Zorko or Shaw.
Gawn goes big and I'm back on track but if he spuds it up again…

    Ratitat · 22/05/2016 at 12:38

    Go with Gawn. High risk, potentially very high reward!! I have been tossing up between Gawn and Shaw all morning and I think i'm going to lock away Gawn. He has only failed miserably once (last week) and he will surely bounce back this week against a weak Brisbane lineup. I foresee many many hitouts to advantage.

      The Ranger · 22/05/2016 at 14:31

      When you're in a hole, and I am, it's normally wise to stop digging.
      Bloody glad i I didn't put the C on Gawn!

      Southern S · 22/05/2016 at 15:11

      Trent West and Stefan Martin.

Greg · 22/05/2016 at 12:33

Similar to The Ranger.
Do I keep the C on Gawn ot take Hannebury's 110?

    Nathan · 22/05/2016 at 12:38

    Gawn battling niggles- would go another premium

      Greg · 22/05/2016 at 12:40

      Could also use Zorko, Montagna or Shiel as captain.

winters · 22/05/2016 at 12:57

I'm 1540 with Benken, Petracca, Gawn, Shaw, shiel, ward and tipungwuti

how am i placed community

    Tommo09 · 22/05/2016 at 13:00

    Very well

    Iamme · 22/05/2016 at 13:10

    2200 plus in my estimations.

    fedd · 22/05/2016 at 13:29

    yeah 2200 sounds rite

Tommo09 · 22/05/2016 at 12:58

Anyone going for Selwood in a few weeks when price drops low??
What will he get to??

    Southern S · 22/05/2016 at 16:53

    No room for him in my midfield, three scores in the 70's is not ideal and tells me his scoring will probably be similar to last year. Bringing in Pendles, Priddis and probably Gray.

    But if you want him then wait a while he'll be back around his starting price of 565k in no time.

Banksy700 · 22/05/2016 at 12:58

im sitting on 1287 with 11 people to play who are zorko, petracca, dahlhous, hartley, brown, tippa, libba, ward, steven, montagana and heath shaw. AM i doing alright?

Iamme · 22/05/2016 at 13:08

1266/12 Benken, Petracca, Shaw, Ward, Tippy, Brown, Libba. Rich, Zorko, and Zahara remaining hopeful of 2100 plus this week.

siri · 22/05/2016 at 14:26


Pandaboy · 22/05/2016 at 14:59

Like I said last week. Gawn's gone.

    Spittsa · 22/05/2016 at 15:08

    I poo-pooed you last week for your comment, however you maybe right. He is running around like a headless chook. I have Goldy and I wish I had chosen NitNat instead of Gaaaaawn.

      I N Pieman · 22/05/2016 at 15:49

      I wouldn't be trusting him with captain duties ATM

        DankMemes · 22/05/2016 at 16:03

        meh he will come back

          Southern S · 22/05/2016 at 16:43


Westy · 22/05/2016 at 15:28

Into the top 1000 in AFL Fantasy, but it just doesn't have the same cachet as Supercoach.

AFL Fantasy Team
D Shaw, Mullett, AMT, Dea, B Williams, Simpson (Hartley, Laird)
M Dangerfield, Young, Libba, Gibbs, Kerridge, J Smith, Dahlhaus, MacPherson (Keays, Ablett)
R Goldy, Gawn (Currie, West)
F BenKen, P Wright, Zorko, Petracca, Franklin, Waite (Hall, M Adams)

Moppy · 22/05/2016 at 16:18

In my opinion, and the vast majority of this community will disagree, I prefer AFL fantasy. Yes, I know one can simply look at ones mobile but I like to set and forget like SC used to be. Maybe one of the reasons why the drop off playing SC is significant. Incidentally, I enjoy both games.

cashcows · 22/05/2016 at 17:25

Shaw going absolutely insane. 147 at 3QT

    The Ranger · 22/05/2016 at 17:30

    At least I picked the right captain this week, gonna need it.

      cashcows · 22/05/2016 at 17:38

      Nice pick ranger, glad it paid off. We all know he's capable of scores like these, if only they were more frequent.

      I got goldy myself so I'm not complaining.

    Anonymous · 22/05/2016 at 17:31

    Kicking to himself and kicking sideways aren't that influential in the game? It's like kick to kick in the backyard

      cashcows · 22/05/2016 at 17:39

      Rebounding 50s and effective kicks to teammates add up. Tho I'm definitely not an expert at how SC points are calculated.

      Southern S · 22/05/2016 at 18:15

      38 touches with 36 of them kicks.

      DE 97%

      14 marks.

      6 Tackles.

      14 Rebound 50's and 2 inside 50's.

      He set up GWS out of the backline all day…………………..

        Anonymous · 22/05/2016 at 18:32

        97% efficiency coz there's no pressure too easy, yup I don't have him will bring him in soon

Anonymous · 22/05/2016 at 17:29

How can a coach let Shaw as a loose player and constantly set them up? That's where the difference is not rocket science …

Derek · 22/05/2016 at 17:29

Shaw 147 at 3/4 time. Not a bad C choice

    Nicholas · 22/05/2016 at 17:31

    I went parker vc but my original plan was danger into shaw 🙁

    Neverweaken · 22/05/2016 at 17:54

    At the last minute I changed from Goldie to shaw. Was cursing but that's gonna give me the win in my league

      Derek · 22/05/2016 at 18:33

      I'm against Crouching, he had Goldy. Very close game, But comes down to he has Dea and I have Gresham. Oh well.

      Southern S · 22/05/2016 at 18:49

      And of course Dea gets 100 by 3/4 time, unlucky Derek.

      Gresham looked ok in the first quarter had 25 or so points then went missing.

    Redgumwon · 22/05/2016 at 18:51

    Had Danger as VC and was going to go with Gawn. At the last minute changed to Shaw. I'm very happy now that I did

Brent · 22/05/2016 at 17:52

Anyone else thinking of wingard? Prob 380k next week….surely he will be 500k soon anyway so even if ya wanna give him the flick ya still make 120k out of him. Seems obvious to bring him in

    Southern S · 22/05/2016 at 18:21

    One round of 107, after a 54, 61, 36, 76 and 63 doesn't scream an obvious good pick to me. Sure he's capable but I'd give him another week at the very least.

    In 2013 he averaged close to 100, then it dropped to around 80 in 2014, then back up again to almost 100 in 2015, he's inconsistent.

andy_89 · 22/05/2016 at 18:02

First 200 of the season on the cards. Shaw on 192 pre-scaling

    tom · 22/05/2016 at 18:20

    Scaled to 203

      andy_89 · 22/05/2016 at 18:22

      First C I got right all season!

        Scott · 22/05/2016 at 19:59

        Well done!

breakevens · 22/05/2016 at 18:27

NO NO NO NO went Gawn as captain instead of Shaw

Jaffa · 22/05/2016 at 18:27

Yes had a ripper week!!!!
looking at around 2800 hopefully currently on 2360 with Montagna, Zaharakis and Dea left

    jaffa · 22/05/2016 at 18:28

    sorry guys 2700
    2800 was very wishful thinking lol

    Tommo09 · 22/05/2016 at 18:29

    What's your team??

    Southern S · 22/05/2016 at 18:35

    That's awesome you'll be right up near the top this week I imagine.

    Dean · 22/05/2016 at 18:54

    Think Jaffa is talking crapola… Whats your SC team name?

    breakevens · 22/05/2016 at 19:46

    Awesome stuff

Tommo09 · 22/05/2016 at 18:32

May get to 2400!!!
I am so surprised!
How is everyone else doing?!

    Iamme · 22/05/2016 at 18:44

    around 2300 9 tons plus Shaw's double…This round not the carnage I thought it was going to be after the teams were announced on Thursday night.

    Mike · 22/05/2016 at 20:13

    I got 2407 . And last week 2330 hopefully back to back weekly rankings in the top 100

Vinny · 22/05/2016 at 18:36

Par Score around this week?
Some very up and down scores with Captain choices such as Goldy and Shaw, whereas Gawn and Dangerfield.
Will be splitting the pack even further I reckon.

    Frank · 22/05/2016 at 19:05

    2250-2300 i reckon. some poor buggers will have been screwed over by C on blokes like Gawn, some will have hit the jackpot with Goldy or Shaw.

HOLLA · 22/05/2016 at 18:44

Im done with this shit! AARON YOUNG ON THE BENCH,scores 118 (f*ck)
Had vc on parker cpt on wells. Changed cpt to shaw (good)
Left wells on field with petracca on bench, but didnt click the [email protected]@ing EMERGENCY BUTTON!!! (Bad)
Anyone else rob themselves of 164 points??

    HOLLA · 22/05/2016 at 21:34

    Oh yeah and traded Ruggles out to avoid a donut.

      HOLLA · 22/05/2016 at 21:58

      Could have scored 2404 if i wasnt a dicktard

Leviathan · 22/05/2016 at 19:04

I am looking at 2450 this week. Very pleased. If only I had have gone Shaw! Might have cracked 2500! Goldy was awesome though. Hopefully move up the rankings a bit again. Currently ranked 359th.

Richard · 22/05/2016 at 19:11

Just fell short of 2300 and don't have Shaw.Alas out of reach for now.Traded Goldy in and put C on him,so very happy with this score

Boltons Blues · 22/05/2016 at 19:15

2322 and still lost my league game…

    Derek · 22/05/2016 at 19:41

    2323 and got beat in 7 leagues

      Derek · 22/05/2016 at 19:44

      Crouching went 2500+ He did good, he drink rum.

Big G · 22/05/2016 at 19:16

Dea – you star

    Leviathan · 22/05/2016 at 19:20

    What did he end up with?

      poloko48 · 22/05/2016 at 19:27


John · 22/05/2016 at 19:17

Im going to bite the bullet and go s martin to goldstein i fell he wont be this cheap for ages.

Neverweaken · 22/05/2016 at 19:21

2447. My opponent scored 2375

    Neverweaken · 22/05/2016 at 19:35

    Actually scaled. 2456 🙂

poloko48 · 22/05/2016 at 19:25

Scored 2229 this week, pretty happy with that although not sure if I'll go up in rankings as I'm seeing some high scores so far.

Heater 203
Goldy 173 (C)
Tippett 141
Ward 124
Parker 120

Gawn 63
Wines 71
Jelwood 72
Libba 82

Rooks on field:
Brand 46
Wagner 56
DBJ 57
Hartley 61
JSmith 67
AMT 93
Kerridge 105
Petracca 105

What's par likely to be this week?

    Dean · 22/05/2016 at 19:29

    It cold be anything due to high scorers in Shaw & Goldy & then there's Gwan & Martin who screwed up.

    So Par could be around 2100 up to 2250+ Its gut me stuffed. I only scored 2164

HOLLA · 22/05/2016 at 19:32

Im done with this shit! AARON YOUNG ON THE BENCH,scores 118 (f*ck)

    HOLLA · 22/05/2016 at 19:32

    Didnt mean to post this*

Iamme · 22/05/2016 at 19:32

2340 very happy with that

Tommo09 · 22/05/2016 at 19:46

Got 2412!
Is this a par score?

    Dean · 22/05/2016 at 19:48

    Well over par mate. 2200 will be par

      Tommo09 · 22/05/2016 at 19:49

      I thought it would be par considering Goldy and Shaw
      I had Shaw, and Goldy C

        Neverweaken · 22/05/2016 at 19:51

        Seems to be either under 2200 or over 2400

    Youngy · 22/05/2016 at 20:47

    above par

JAYZ · 22/05/2016 at 19:57

2391 rapt with that score. Took the hit these two weeks, Barlow hall wells Ablett laird back next week ! Hopefully up from here 🙂

Shags · 22/05/2016 at 20:02

My late decision to change the captain from Shaw to Goldy cost me the game, am I the only one this happened to. Bummer.

    Cam_H · 22/05/2016 at 20:11

    Swapped from Goldstein to Wells (C) making Parker (VC) my defacto Captain and similarly lost my game.

    Still a long way to go Shags before the season's done however.

    Oh yeah … forgot to thank Ross Lyon for the inspired decision to keep Barlow playing for Peel.

      Shags · 22/05/2016 at 20:22

      Agreed it is long season Cam it still hurts though, I was playing the top spot had I bet them I'd be there. They had Shaw so changed for that pod unfortunately it fell their way.

Southern S · 22/05/2016 at 20:07

So what's the verdict on Hopper?

74 supercoach points

18 touches (8 contested)
72% DE
6 marks
3 clearances (including 2 centre)
3 tackles


Yes or no?

I personally think the performance is pretty decent against the doggies.

    Tommo09 · 22/05/2016 at 20:11

    I am getting him

    Don't Blush Baby' · 22/05/2016 at 20:18

    The question is ,do we bring him @ 194k K, everyones structures are different but do we strive to go the Premiums first rather than the Mid Pricer with a bullet ?

    Southern S · 22/05/2016 at 20:20

    Yeah I'm not blown away by Mathieson's first game but thinking of getting him instead of Hopper.

      Juzzy · 22/05/2016 at 20:52


      That extra 70ishK might mean a Rance/Hannerbery vs a Savage/Sloane.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 22/05/2016 at 21:18

    He looked pretty good think i may trade menapoo to hopper.
    Loose my dpp but think hopper will be fairly handy during the byes.
    With kerridge and AMT pretty much tonning up and benkens 80 will mean they will go up around $70k over the next couple of weeks so still be able to afford the premos.

    Southern S · 22/05/2016 at 21:27

    Jack Trengove (156k) is also a possibility to come back for round 10 against Port Adelaide, if he's named I don't think I have room for Hopper.

    Southern S · 22/05/2016 at 21:28

    *I have a warchest to get 2 guns this week, Mathias next, and Trengove the following, so for me in particular Hopper is probably not a good option.

      Boltons blues · 22/05/2016 at 21:36

      Trengrove throws a spanner into the works
      I was going to trade AMT or BenKen to Priddas this week to help my bye structure

winters · 22/05/2016 at 20:11

well community ended up 2318 so pretty happy with my score with 8 onfield rookies

Def- shaw docherty enright tipungwuti byrne dbj
203 135 63 96 112 57

mid- danger hanners ward hewett shiel zieball lewis priddis

133 89 105 105 81 46

Wayno76 · 22/05/2016 at 20:13

I needed Merit 100 to beat Tipungwuti 96 by 14 points 🙁
Final score 2174 v 2177
Spewn i thought meritt had done enough to score higher ohh well just lucky i cracked the 2000 this week with 2.5 mill of players on the bench yes thanks Shaw had the C on him and he made my score respectable with two donuts on the field

Luviboy1 · 22/05/2016 at 20:15

Pretty chuffed with this week. Went a hell of a lot better than planned. Finished with 2350, seeming like a decent score. Not looking forward to MRP with Gray and Montagna both on report 🙁 How did we go community??

    JAYZ · 22/05/2016 at 20:58

    What did Montagna get reported for!?

      Luviboy1 · 22/05/2016 at 23:16

      I read a high hit. Hoping it was just heresay though!

pitch72 · 22/05/2016 at 20:19

2309 with macperson 44, sumner 45, menaspew 46, dbj 57, goldy captain and heaters double ton, pretty happy, won 9/10 league games.

Liam · 22/05/2016 at 20:20

2414 not bad

    Leviathan · 22/05/2016 at 20:47

    2425 I guess i'll take it

Fevolution25 · 22/05/2016 at 20:33

I thought 2290 was gonna be a pretty good score…

    Southern S · 22/05/2016 at 20:37

    It is pretty good, there's a lot of variation this week.

      Derek · 22/05/2016 at 21:06

      CrouchingOne knocked out a lazy 2506. There will be plenty Rum this week. I wonder what Mrs Tiger will think

        Southern S · 22/05/2016 at 21:10

        That's solid. Crouching one is very wise so it doesn't surprise me!

@RadfordWhite · 22/05/2016 at 20:45

Im flying high after taking Patch's suggestion of Heath Shaw as a Captain darky. Captains loop saw Parker on Friday with 120 into 240,but wasnt happy with that. Took the punt on Heath and he paid dividends. Biggest SC score of the year?

    @RadfordWhite · 22/05/2016 at 20:45

    In total 2397

    Moses · 22/05/2016 at 21:53

    Patch sometimes gets it right.

Youngy · 22/05/2016 at 20:48

2370… I'll take it.

Fevolution25 · 22/05/2016 at 20:58

Defence downgrade targets???

Derek · 22/05/2016 at 21:04

Anyone know how McPherson is? Will he miss many weeks?

    winters · 22/05/2016 at 21:05

    think i read mcl 6-8 weeks

      Derek · 22/05/2016 at 21:16

      Thanks. He'll have to go

    Lachie · 22/05/2016 at 22:55

    thank god i went against the community and didnt trade him in

      Southern S · 22/05/2016 at 23:10

      Supercoach gods shine on you Lachie.

      They could make a novel out of their injury list at Gold Coast.

Stuart · 22/05/2016 at 21:05

I want to know when the supercoach website will be up again, have been unable to log in since Friday morning. Anyone else have same problem? Fortunately have made team adjustments via app on phone.

    Southern S · 22/05/2016 at 21:20

    It's been fine for me.

Sarah · 22/05/2016 at 21:34

Where would you need to be ranked atm to still be in the running to take the whole thing???

    Peter · 22/05/2016 at 21:44

    Bruyn winner from 2013 was already top 3 few weeks ago and held off most the year. But I'm sure there are some instances where the winner has come from way back

    Derek · 22/05/2016 at 21:46

    Don't look at the rank, it is points from the top. If you are still within 1,000 pts you are still a good shot.

    Will need everything to go your way. Where are you Sarah?

      Sarah · 22/05/2016 at 23:27

      Was as high as 280 two weeks ago, pushed back to 780 last week and back up to 380 odd with a score of 2391.

      I'm hoping they've burnt trades haha held onto Barlow wells Ablett laird hall this week so pretty happy with where I'm at. 20 trades left just feel my upgrades are what everyone else is doing but they also are the best option..

        Derek · 22/05/2016 at 23:32

        That is very good, for someone who also started with BCrouch.

        20 trades left is key. Your looking good

        Loop · 23/05/2016 at 06:29

        BURST had made 12 trades at the end of round 7, flicked premos back and forward, I think he might crash and burn.

          Sarah · 23/05/2016 at 12:02

          Been keeping a close eye have we? Haha 😉

    Leviathan · 22/05/2016 at 21:51

    I think you would have to be no further than 500 points behind the leader.

    If you are further back at this point in the game, it would need few "miracle" trades to get you back into it.

    After this week, I need more than a miracle.

      MaccasMarvels · 22/05/2016 at 22:08

      How high did you jump up the rankings after your good score mate?

      Derek · 22/05/2016 at 23:03

      500 is very gettable. At 1000 away, everything will need to go right, but I'm sencing a lot of the front runners are going to have trades running out and not enough cash to get full premo.

      Southern S · 22/05/2016 at 23:09

      Anything could happen this year as we've seen from the carnage, long way to go still plus the bye rounds.

TRIGGER HAPPY · 22/05/2016 at 21:37

Finished just shy of 2300 with 10 rooks on field and no goldy.
hopefully can get a few back to replace ruggles, brand, smith, davis and mendapoo.
kerridge, amt, petrecca exceeded expectations, benken was very good, dbj almost seen out his time,
Heater helped but with all my other big boyz tonning up except danger and gawn lots of room to improve
Gawny what is going on? You want to be the best ruckman but goldy outscores you by more than 100 points! Lift son.

Phil · 22/05/2016 at 22:00

Some upgrade targets in defence? Currently have shaw/doc/laird/AMT/DBJ/Hartley (ruggles/brand)

    Southern S · 22/05/2016 at 22:33

    Simpson, Boyd?

    Southern S · 22/05/2016 at 22:35

    DBJ and Hartley are gone this week for me.

    In comes Pendlebury and Simpson.

    Lachie · 22/05/2016 at 22:42


Cameron · 22/05/2016 at 22:08

Really tempted to pull the pin on Ollie Wines and do a straight swap to Priddis, only way i can get priddis in and feels like an upgrade to be honest, would this be crazy?

    Dean · 22/05/2016 at 22:11

    Yes its a sideways trade. I have Wines also mate.

Mike · 22/05/2016 at 22:16

Is Stringer to Dahlhaus a sideways trade?

Hayley · 22/05/2016 at 22:18

2482 this week. Back into the top 100 (57th) overall.

Might have to make the big decision to cull Libba this week in order to get Pendlebury in before he's worth 750 lol

SMASHERSPIES · 22/05/2016 at 22:29

2437 this round top 1% was hoping to peg the $1000 close but no cigar lol

Southern S · 22/05/2016 at 22:30

Shaw, Docherty, Simpson, Bartel, Adams (350k) – Tippa (350k)/Byrne (300k)

Danger, Hannebery, Pendles, Parker, Zaha, Ablett, Libbe, Barlow – Smith(250k)/Keays/MacPherson

Nic Nat, Gawn – King

Hall, Kerridge(383k), De Goey(405k), Wells(431k), Lyons(359k), Petracca – BenKen(355k)/Brown(312k)

Team value 13,068,300 Warchest 486,600

Combined value 13,554,900

Might just make full premo if I'm lucky, my cows and stepping stones are getting nice and fat.

    Derek · 22/05/2016 at 23:09

    Still a lot to do. How are your number if trades SS?

      Nicholas · 23/05/2016 at 00:02

      Off memory he has about 15

Southern S · 22/05/2016 at 22:32

But he is on fire………………

    Cameron · 22/05/2016 at 22:44

    Yes he is but can't get caught chasing last weeks points, it only takes one bad score from these 600k + premiums to drop in price significantly

      Southern S · 22/05/2016 at 23:02

      I've wanted Docherty for weeks now, and if I didn't 'chase him' after his 144 I wouldn't have got his 135 this week and wouldn't have the second best scoring defender in the league.

      He's now gone up 42k to 554k and has a 50 BE. What's the point of waiting for a player you want if you're going to miss their good scoring?

      I understand not chasing points, but just because someone got a good score and you want to trade them in doesn't automatically making it chasing points and a fail move.

      Sure Pendles might go down a bit at some stage but he did start at 627k after an average year in 2015 by his standards.

      Surely when it's someone like Pendlebury exceptions have to be made.

      Anyway I've locked him in no regrets, people were paying 600k for Selwood, so I don't see a problem with 645k for an ultra premo like Pendles.

      Fluctuations in price are always going to happen but if you wait forever on an in form player to drop, you may never get them, look at Zorko for instance.

        Hayley · 23/05/2016 at 13:12

        Pendles has only gone under 100 once this year in round 1 when he was sore as and playing half back. Pies look like they might have turned a corner too, and Pendles is in the thick of the action.

Southern S · 22/05/2016 at 22:32

That's what I thought last year, never again Ollie doesn't break out.

    Cameron · 22/05/2016 at 22:52

    Yep agree definitely on my long list of never agains

@winterjames5 · 22/05/2016 at 22:42

best defender under 475k

    Southern S · 22/05/2016 at 22:47

    Zac Williams is an interesting one if you like a gamble.

    McVeigh might find good form again soon, not sure of his BE as SC keeps having an error when I open his profile.

    I'm not a fan of Rich but without Beams and Rocky (probably in and out all year) could be worth a gamble.

    I'd probably suggest Gibson even though he's been a bit up and down.

      @winterjames5 · 22/05/2016 at 22:57

      would go williams but already have shaw in def and other gws players

      am considering Howe who since his role change to fence has notched up 3 tons in a row and he has fwd-def swing

        Southern S · 22/05/2016 at 23:04

        I wasn't aware of that, he looks like a really good option if he keeps that role. You've got me thinking thanks 🙂

          @winterjames5 · 22/05/2016 at 23:09

          yeah was playing that 3-4 key forward role but was useless but now he seems to be playing that running half back that pendles was tried in think he has avg of 20+ possies and pretty sure his de has been 87% also kicks more than handballs

            Leeds17 · 23/05/2016 at 06:11

            I had a good look at Howe this week, didn't pull the trigger unfortunately, role looks fantastic & he's more skilled by foot than I thought, bonus is he takes a couple contested marks game as well as basic intercept,

Dean · 22/05/2016 at 22:48

What's the go with Barlow, why isn't he playing I just heard Ross Lyons press conference here:
Listen to what Ross the tosser says at the 4:25 mark he mentioned and I QUOTE: "Michael Barlow really stood up"

So does the community believe Barlow will come back in this week especially considering the injuries Freo sustained?

I'm very bloody confused.

    Southern S · 22/05/2016 at 23:05

    Yeah I don't get it, if he's not named this week he's gotta go, this is just a joke no more freo players for me.

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 22/05/2016 at 23:17

      Glad i ditched them early.
      Just cant trust ross lyin.
      Fyfe – pridda
      Barlow – parker
      no regrets on those two.
      one forced, one gut feel.

jake · 22/05/2016 at 23:05

what i'm thinking this week is obj down to williams then upgrade menadue but i only have 473k for a fwd so hat doesn't leave much chose who to get under 470k

    Tommo · 23/05/2016 at 09:10

    Bailey Williams doesn't look like his JS is very good. With Boyd, Suckling to return.

Vinny · 22/05/2016 at 23:12

Will Laird, Ablett, Hall, Barlow be back?
Surely Barlow considering his game.
But im not sure about the other threes injuries

    Dean · 22/05/2016 at 23:22

    Hall & Laird should be, actually so should Wells if its a corky as they stated because the Roo's are playing Swans in Sydney. If they don't select Wells this week then its something allot more serious then a corked thigh.

      Tommo · 23/05/2016 at 07:06

      Wells injury that kept him out was an Achilles soreness.

    BB · 22/05/2016 at 23:28

    All listed as 1 week Vinny so fingers crossed for all 3 – probably depends on who Rocket wants to take to Perth for the Eagles. Rockliff and Wells doubtful.

    Dean · 22/05/2016 at 23:32

    I think Barlow might be back also if he isn't then we need to get rid of him also.
    I listened to Ross Lyons press conference here:….
    Listen to what Ross the tosser says at the 4:25 mark, he mentioned and I QUOTE: "Michael Barlow really stood up"

    I have Wells, Laird, Ablett, Hall & Barlow also, its killing me. I was ranked 5200 but slipped to 7700 this week which isn't bad considering I have had almost $3 Million worth of payers sitting on my bench for 2 weeks & Laird 3 weeks now,

Don · 22/05/2016 at 23:49

Is priddis really a must get?

    Derek · 23/05/2016 at 00:52

    I think he is top 8 midfield, and he might not be cheaper.

John · 23/05/2016 at 06:46

Is tippett a good option to be brining into my side for wells or not.

Tommo09 · 23/05/2016 at 07:05

Got 2412!
Total score 19711. Am I still in it?
Menadue and Gresham to Hopper and Priddis

Tommo09 · 23/05/2016 at 07:12

S.Mitchell for anyone??

    LtDraught · 23/05/2016 at 09:03

    BE of 152, if you're considering him and can hold off his price will surely drop further!

    Tommo · 23/05/2016 at 09:29

    Handballs a hell of a lot for mine. If he pumps out some good scores, i may be convinced. It is a very juicy price though.

Fevolution25 · 23/05/2016 at 08:12

DBJ 323k has a be of 105 which is possible for him to get close to
Brown 310k he a be of 75 and after his good game on the weekend he could be due for a stinker possibly going under 300k again

    siri · 23/05/2016 at 08:48

    Brown to simpson for me

johnno2908 · 23/05/2016 at 08:15

Is it stupid to go Gawn -> Goldy. Pretty much a straight swap, actually making some money. My other ruck is NicNat, so also means my ruck wont have same bye.
Goldy = Proven Ultra Premo, BE 66, and $120k cheaper than he started the year.

    One Touch Wonder · 23/05/2016 at 09:00

    have a look at Norf's draw over the next 5 weeks, do you think goldy can score against those teams? will be tough

    I N Pieman · 23/05/2016 at 09:37

    Hold. A few weeks ago people were talking about going Goldy to Gawn. Goldy Gawn & Nic Nat are the top 3 rucks. If you have 2 of them you'll be right

hedski · 23/05/2016 at 10:31

Aahh. Pi$$ off Menapoo.
Welcolme Zorko the Magnificent.

    I N Pieman · 23/05/2016 at 10:55

    Makes your team 70-80 points better per week. Great trade for mine
