AFL PODCAST – Round 10

Published by Jock on


In a week where the big guns were down, Jock gives his team a rousing speech to inspire them to reach new levels.

In this casting of the pod ….

  • We start with a big one – Is Gawn gone?
  • What genuine FWD options are around and is Tippett the real deal?
  • Crouching’s skates right on the edge with his Pyanmanese Children’s Story ….. but that’s what we have come to expect.
  • Higgo goes again with his Quantum Team Mechanics segment, suggesting Brett Deledio is a must have.
  • Wayno  … Fantasy News Daily …. and HEAPS MORE!

As mentioned in the podcast – there are TWO HUGE SUNDAY SESSIONS this weekend for the COLLvDOGS game. Get on down to either DOYLES BRIDGE HOTEL in Mordialloc or THE COVE in Patterson Lakes.





This week’s CoachKings Fixture



Enjoy the podcast – enjoy the week!

i have 438k to spend on a forward, who should i get, dont have to spend it all

    cashcows · 24/05/2016 at 16:33

    Not a lot you can do with that price.

    I feel like your doing a cashcow + cash trade and it's not enough. If it's a kerridge or a benken I'd wait. Or do another trade for more $$$ to a premo forward

      sc king · 24/05/2016 at 17:33

      im reaaly looking to get rid of brown asap and i have just downgraced mills to hopper to make the extra cash, but it still only gives me an awkward price of 438k when trying to get rid of brown

        Hubba · 24/05/2016 at 18:32

        Best look for a hopper alternative then . Will pick you up another 60k to hey a proper premo

    Northernsoul74 · 24/05/2016 at 16:56

    I'd hold off and build cash until you can afford someone you really want in a week or 2.

    Kev · 24/05/2016 at 17:01

    What options do you have, sc king? It's too late in the season for a stepping stone type player

    Steeeve · 24/05/2016 at 17:17

    Wingard your best chance at a premo

    Danners · 24/05/2016 at 19:08

    Find more money

    Leeds17 · 24/05/2016 at 19:12

    Not sure what price Gunston is but he'd be a good in this week with the run Hawks have coming up

    Cam · 24/05/2016 at 21:55

    Mate if you get in matheson instead of hopper youve got an extra 80k to work with. Much more options then

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:10

    Do not buy anyone with that


    Make more $ and get Lids

    Jono · 25/05/2016 at 22:19

    Wells should be back? or Eddie Betts???

dean · 24/05/2016 at 16:18

thoughts on my team and any trade ideas would be awesome cheers!


    dean · 24/05/2016 at 16:19

    currently have 20 trades and 100K

      cashcows · 24/05/2016 at 16:28

      Sitting pretty with that team, i like it.

      Only one I see is probably DBJ to Williams for the 200k.
      Then look to upgrade in the midfield.

Clarky · 24/05/2016 at 16:20

Hi Guys
Got a few options for trades this week

Option 1: Wells (if he doesn't play) to Zorko, DBJ to Williams
Option 2: Gresham to Mathieson, DBJ to Simpson
Option 3: Mckenzie to Williams, DBJ to Simpson
Option 4: DBJ to Williams, Gresham to Mathieson

    cashcows · 24/05/2016 at 16:31

    Depends on your team structure but I'd go 1 first, but if wells plays then 3.

    Wait next week for mathieson.

    Clarky · 24/05/2016 at 16:41

    I should probably put my team up, so you get a better gauge:

    Shaw, Gibbo, Laird, Tippa, DBJ, Hartley (Brand, Mckenzie)

    Pendles, Ward, Sidebum, Jelwood, Ablett, Libba, BKennedy, Smith, (Davis, Keays, Gresham)

    Goldy, Martin (Wyatt)

    Dusty, Buddy, Merrett, Greene, Wells, De Goey, (Kerridge, Petracca)

    I am holding out for a Mid/FWD DPP to pick up in the midfield as i only have one DPP player, so limits options to swing around.

      Dice · 24/05/2016 at 21:01

      Kerridge and Mckenzie out for premium backman and fwd rookie

I N Pieman · 24/05/2016 at 16:27

Cracking intro Jock. One of the all time great rev ups. You give one to Ross this week old mate! We want Barlow

Liam · 24/05/2016 at 16:33

Great stuff fellas.
Does anyone know if Wells is going to play ?

    jake · 24/05/2016 at 18:04

    Probably, he has to get through tomorrows training session, but if he does he's a certainty.

    Lucid · 24/05/2016 at 20:05

    Triple m radio Brayshaw said he assumes he will play if he trains well. He's on hold for me. Imo should be a premo forward if not for injuries ruining him.

    Tommo · 24/05/2016 at 20:13

    Im surprised some people still don't know the main reason why he didn't play. He didn't play due to Achilles soreness, they are being extra cautious as this was the injury that kept him out of most of last season. Nothing has been said about his thigh, it isnt the issue.

      The Ranger · 24/05/2016 at 22:11

      And it's the Achilles on the other leg, not the one that was injured last year.

        hedski · 24/05/2016 at 22:26

        Ah wells punted him to the prid last week

          Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 22:46

          I reckon that's a pretty good move even if he does come back.

            Blueth · 24/05/2016 at 23:10

            yeah he's gonna give us the shits again in a month when they play another shit team and drop him

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:19

    Already got rid of him

    throw around the word "Achilles" then your OUT

cashcows · 24/05/2016 at 16:34

If it doesn't then he's gotta go. Either way we'll get a decisive answer.

    Liam · 24/05/2016 at 16:39

    Why do you think he has to go. If he doesn't play this week he might play next.

      Whatthe · 24/05/2016 at 16:58

      Exactly. Too good a player in a great team. I will wait another week or two.

        One Touch Wonder · 24/05/2016 at 17:03

        If he doesn't play this week there is more than a corked thigh wrong with him. He has to go if he doesn't play. He has maxed out in his cash making. Is not a premium keeper. Kangas have tough games, unless he is fully fit he won't score well.

          Lachie · 24/05/2016 at 18:06

          he has not maxed his cash making. Wells is probably one of the best fwd players you can have for finals.. The only reason you should trade him is if he's injured beyond a corky. Cash has literally nothing to do with this.

            One Touch Wonder · 24/05/2016 at 19:44

            I trades Hall to Zorko 3 weeks ago and Wells to Montagna last week. I'd say i'm pretty happy. that is what they were there for.

              Lachie · 24/05/2016 at 21:45

              No.. Wells is for sure a premo.

          Liam · 24/05/2016 at 18:12

          Didn't look at it that way. Was planning on making him M9/F7 loop.

          bobby · 24/05/2016 at 18:48

          hes a fwd keeper surely whos better

      cashcows · 24/05/2016 at 17:02

      Thats what we said last week. At some point you just gotta call it. With him we just don't know if 1 week is 1 week. Yes we've already waited the 2 or 3 he's been out and 1 wouldn't hurt but his track record doesn't help.

John · 24/05/2016 at 16:39

This week is it better to go mitch brown to chad wingard or darcy bryne jones for bailey williams thoughts?

    Pinidu · 24/05/2016 at 16:46

    Downgrade DBJ and get the cash mate, I reckon there are better options than Wingard out there if u can find the cash

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:20

    I got WINGARD last week

    I think he will bounce back

    I went DBJ to T.McDONALD. risk v reward move hoping Tmac can get back to last year form

Tommo · 24/05/2016 at 16:43

Great Jock!! Love ya work as always. 🙂

Pinidu · 24/05/2016 at 16:45

Thoughts on my team and trades this week community?

36K and 21 trades
DEF: Shaw, Laird, Simpson, Rance, Gibson, Adams (AMT, DBJ)
MID: Danger, Pendles, Gazza, Priddis, Libba, Mills, Parish, Smith (Hewett, Menadue, Dunkley)
RUC: Gawn, Nic Nat (Wyatt)
FWD: Dusty, Hall, Barlow, Greene, Wells, Kerridge (Kennedy, Petracca)

DBJ (BE: 106) –> B. Williams (or Tucker/Lee if named)
Parish/Mills –> Robbie Gray
Who needs to go first: Parish or Mills?

    CJudd3Votes · 24/05/2016 at 17:03

    Parish. Given a BE of 52 id say it's not the right week to get rid of Mills if you got other options

    Kev · 24/05/2016 at 17:04

    Breakevens say Parish

    cashcows · 24/05/2016 at 17:05

    Williams got some good comments out of Bevo on his performance v GWS so he's in, but if he's not I wouldn't even consider tucker or lee, esp if DBJ is out, no price change.

    Whoever has the higher BE i suppose or wait. Think Gray still has a high ish BE but i've got him already pre injury.

Roger · 24/05/2016 at 16:45

Thoughts on the best option for this week
Def : Shaw, SImpson, Laird, Brown, Hartley, Tippa, (Byrne Jones, Brand)
Mid : Dangerfield, Hanners, Pendlebury, Parker, Ward, Ablett, Libba, Petracca (Smith, Davis, Mccpherson)
Rk: Gawn, Martin (Grimley)
Fwd : Zorka, Montagna, Franklin, Hall, Greene, Kerridge (Short, Cox)
224k spare change.
Obvious trade is Byrne Jones to Williams
Which leaves me with 409k.
Not sure what to do with the second trade.
If I trade Short for a premium Mid/Fwd I'll still have Both Brown and Hartley on the field which is a weak link.
I'm keeping Hartley for another week because his BE is reachable so Brown is probably the likely one to go.
The question is, who should I get. I want to get Bartel next week because his got a high BE and Hartley should make another 10k so I'll upgrade Hartley to Bartel. But is it too late to get Docherty ? 550k is a lot for a defender and there is really no one else who is cheap in defence that scores consistent.
Any thoughts community ? Thanks

    Liam · 24/05/2016 at 17:02

    DBJ to Rance.

      @an3vilmonk3y · 24/05/2016 at 17:50

      Rance next week? His BE is 135…

    cashcows · 24/05/2016 at 17:12

    For what its worth, I brought in Docherty this week. Low BE but yes his price should come back down at some point but I'd expect him to still float around 500k towards the end of the season. So losing 50k to fluctuant prices for a consistent 90+ with a ceiling to go 130~, I'd bank that.

    Plus someone said here he has kick in duties. Kicks = more points for us.

    Dan · 24/05/2016 at 22:06

    I got broads in altlanta

      hedski · 24/05/2016 at 22:27

      Come and have a gander

min0008 · 24/05/2016 at 16:57

Hey community, I have a few options for trades.
Option 1: DBJ to Williams and Martin to Goldstein
Option 2: DBJ to Williams and Brown to Priddis
Option 3: DBJ to Williams and Brown to Hopper and bank 320k.

    CJudd3Votes · 24/05/2016 at 17:04

    2. If you run low on trades you'd be more annoyed to still have Brown in your side than Martin

      min0008 · 24/05/2016 at 18:46

      I have 20 trades before making any and need 1 def, 1 mid and 2 fwd upgrades needed presuming Libba and Wells are keepers.

    Danners · 24/05/2016 at 19:10

    Tough one, Option 1 since this is the last chance for Goldstein

    Randomclcihe · 24/05/2016 at 21:06

    I like one. I bought goldy last week 🙂 just wish I'd started gawn nic nat instead of bloody kruzer!

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:21


CJudd3Votes · 24/05/2016 at 16:59

Personally i reckon Jock has every reason to be considering Gawn to Goldy, if you are in a situation that is low on trades stay the hell away but if you're looking good with trades you could do worse becuase i reckon the entire community would back Goldy in to get more points for the remainder of the season

    Pinidu · 24/05/2016 at 19:14

    Is this instance…what would u classify as 'low' or 'high' trade numbers for those contemplating a Gawn –> Goldy trade?

      Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 19:35

      20 trades

    Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 21:28

    The problem with this is, if Goldy gets an 80 next week and Gawn gets 150+ then what?

    They will be equal in score for the entire season that's what.

    People were talking about trading Goldy after he got his 49 and said he looked cooked, he's injured, he's gonna get rested etc etc etc

    This is ludicrous.

    He's had a couple of bad scores in the last two rounds but remember he was the number one ruckmen a week or two ago.

    Three scores of over 160. HOLD PEOPLE (Unless you have Stefan Martin)

      Tommo09 · 24/05/2016 at 21:29

      I agree Southern
      Gawn goes MASSIVE

        Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 21:55

        The bloke is only human, people forget this, could've been sore or could've just been down on form.

        I reckon he'll be pumped for a big game vs Port this week.

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:23

    agreed , in a perfect world that would be a good trade

    however in a perfect world you would have started with goldy already

    and that said, you wouldnt want to trade into goldy only to see him rested through the bye rounds (possible)

DARBY · 24/05/2016 at 17:00

Is this a good trade

Ben Ken- Buddy Franklin

please answer community

    CJudd3Votes · 24/05/2016 at 17:07

    Unless you're set everywhere else I'd leave BenKen for the moment, assuming your team is like everyone elses there are bigger fish to fry

    Randomclcihe · 24/05/2016 at 21:10

    In isolation it is a perfect trade. However I prefer lids priddis montanga and some north ruck who seems to go okay over bud.

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:23

    Ken to Bud = good
    DBJ to Boyd = bad

CJudd3Votes · 24/05/2016 at 17:01

Kade bloody Kolodashit what do we do with him? Hold seems like the obvious answer but the bastard is just embarrassing now

    Scott · 24/05/2016 at 17:14

    Yeah he's let us all down, but have to hold him now and just hope he gets better.

    Steeeve · 24/05/2016 at 17:18

    Hold and hope you find some money later to upgrade the useless prick

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:24

    have to hold mate unfortuantely

    DEF line should be your last priority. concentrate on FWD and MID

Brent · 24/05/2016 at 17:03

Thoughts on Chad wingard? So tempting at that price of around 380k

    Danners · 24/05/2016 at 19:11

    Seems to be playing the Monfries role, wait another week though to see what happens

      Derek · 24/05/2016 at 20:39

      Chad plays well when RGray plays well

    Dean · 24/05/2016 at 21:16

    I got a lot of time for the wingard especially at these prices.

    Lachie · 24/05/2016 at 21:44

    not really SC relevant IMO. He could be good for finals maybe as a POD.

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:24

    i got him last week and enjoyed his 100+ score

Possom · 24/05/2016 at 17:03

Parish and Ben Kennedy to Priddis and Hopper or Priddis and Mathieson. By trading Kennedy I am losing my mid-forward switch around which does concern me despite having adequate bench cover.

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:25

    i like the Matheison over Hopper

    everyone is getting hopper but Matheison will net you an extra 80K plus earnings

    Hopper is one bad game from a high BE

    @t_woof · 25/05/2016 at 16:33

    Couldn't think of not having the Mid/Fwd link in my team. Have two of them. Been a big asset the past couple of rounds, especially last round. Therefore i'd hold Kennedy, or trade in a Mid/Fwd Premium.

      The Ranger · 25/05/2016 at 17:24

      Couldn't agree more t_woof. The more links the better when it gets to the pointy end.
      One of the reasons why Williams is so appealing is his def/mid link.

@winterjames5 · 24/05/2016 at 17:04

my team with $41,200 in the kitty

DEF- Shaw, Docherty, Laird, Enright, Tipungwuti, Byrne (DBJ, Ruggles)
MID- Dangerfield, Hannebery, Ward, Ablett, Shiel, Priddis, Ziebell, Lewis (Hewett, Davis, Gresham)
RCK- Gawn, Nic Nat (Lorensch)
FWD- Martin, Hall, Kerridge, DeGoey, Petracca, Benken (Menaspud, J.smith – who is a 102k non playing rookie)

was thinking of getting rid of DBJ for Williams giving me about 250k for an upgrade

advice on who i should upgrade?

    @an3vilmonk3y · 24/05/2016 at 17:53

    bank the cash, get a premo next week.

    bobby · 24/05/2016 at 19:02

    if you trade dbj to Williams you will have only one on the bench in def Williams wont last don't forget J J BOYD ETC.dumb move

    Leeds17 · 24/05/2016 at 19:15

    Worth waiting till Tursday to see what Defender Freo bring in for Pearce, Collins was solid in the NAB and Tucker is on the bubble.

Neverweaken · 24/05/2016 at 17:07

Thoughts on J Kennedy for forward?
And someone other than Williams for cash. Have Boyd Adams and Suckling

    Kev · 24/05/2016 at 17:27

    Lee, Tucker, and O(ld) McDonald are backline rookies on the bubble this week. JS for all three is shaky

    Mickey P · 24/05/2016 at 21:03

    I am thinking Josh Kennedy too … can score big and has been pretty good all year. Will carve it up this week I reckon

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:25

    i like to avoid KPF in my team. i like Fwd/Mids but up to you

    JB_Tank · 25/05/2016 at 16:22

    Billy Smedts. 190k def. ruggles and bews won't hold their places. Jake Kolo and Smedts will be in the best back 6 in their places and he's ready to break out now. Tearing it up in the twos and playing for his future.

Mb88 · 24/05/2016 at 17:11

No one talking bout down grading to hopper??

    cashcows · 24/05/2016 at 17:16

    Mathieson and Trengrove are upcoming mid rookies who are cheaper.
    Unless you in a trade surplus I wouldnt go hopper. Depends what you using him for. Stepping stone or keeper?

      Steeeve · 24/05/2016 at 17:20

      I'd considered grabbing him as a keeper m10. Use as an emergency if I have an injury later in the year. Or as m8 if I have two short term injuries.

      Worth it?

      Lachie · 24/05/2016 at 18:07

      Why would you grab Trengrove when he isn't on the bubble? Returning from a long term injury. That's just stupid. Hopper > Math also

        Steeeve · 24/05/2016 at 18:13

        He's saying to wait and get those lads when they are on the bubble

          Lachie · 24/05/2016 at 21:43

          then you may aswell downgrade to hopper this week. my point.

            Steeeve · 25/05/2016 at 10:15

            Can't get 'em all though mate. Most would be near full premo in the mids now.

        Leeds17 · 24/05/2016 at 19:21

        70-80K better? IMO there's no point trading a Menadue, Hewett Davis type for Hopper, if you've got a midpricer that's frustrating you maybe a good move

          @an3vilmonk3y · 24/05/2016 at 20:27

          This. The main reason to bring in Hopper is the cash, and you tie up a fair amount of that while he's increasing in value, it could mean the difference between snagging a fallen premo and missing one.

            Dean · 24/05/2016 at 21:25

            Pass on hopper this late in the comp due to his high price.

    Randomclcihe · 24/05/2016 at 21:29

    I'm doing it…but I've got plenty of csh to start with…

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:26

    Cookie Cutter move in my opinion

Micky · 24/05/2016 at 17:22

communtiy plz tell me gawn to goldstein is crazy right?

    Papsmear · 24/05/2016 at 17:23

    I wouldnt

    Danners · 24/05/2016 at 19:12

    It's crazy

    jockreynolds · 24/05/2016 at 19:14

    Not crazy Micky. I'm feeling it mate

    Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 19:35

    It's not completely crazy, but it's not wise.


    Brook · 24/05/2016 at 20:33

    it's a.good move I think … if you'd done it last week it was the classic bruen manoeuvre ,,, but still worth it this week in my book, you would have jumped on a straight swap at the start of the year.

    Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 21:30

    Actually rethinking it, yes it's freakin crazy after two low scores.

    If he can't score well vs Port this week then consider it.

    Dean · 24/05/2016 at 22:00

    I think it is something to seriously consider for a number of reasons. Firstly because of Goldy's massive decline in price and those with Gawn he seems to be carrying some injury.
    Gawn also has a massive break even of 236, so Gawn is projected to drop a further $61,000 this week alone meaning you wont be able to get Goldy for a straight swap with Gawn after this week as Goldy's breakeven is only at 66 so he should increase in price.

    It is a shame those who make this trade cannot see what Gawn scores against Port Adelaide because if he scores another sub 75 then this would almost certainly confirm that he is playing injured and if thats confirmed then pi$$ing him off would be crucial.

    Most importantly if your have less then 21 trades left then I would NOT do this trade however if you have more then 21 trades then for Gods sake play it safe and Trade Gawn to Goldy.

      Well said, although I disagree with 21 trades. The less you have, the more you can't afford to lose out on this trade! Great move!

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:26

    Good move in a perfect world

    bUCKET__ · 24/05/2016 at 21:26

    Gunna be a popular move I reckon Micky, thinking of doing the same. Doch isn't underpriced anymore, but is looking like a top 6 defender.

    Just depends on whether you would rather pick up a bloke who is underpriced instead and upgrade a different line (e.g. Priddis, Lids). If DBJ is missing some weeks and won't decrease in price I might hold him a bit longer and upgrade elsewhere.

    Dean · 24/05/2016 at 22:03

    EXCELLENT trades. I am doing similar trades, however im getting Shaw rather then Docherty.

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:27

    you must worry about your MID and FWD line first

    golden rule of sc

    dont stuff around with DEF until last

Tulendeena · 24/05/2016 at 17:26

MacPherson or Davis out for Hopper?

Longterm I feel macpherson will be better

    Steeeve · 24/05/2016 at 18:15

    Davis is making money, MacPherson is not. And Gold Coast could bring a lot of talent back before MacPherson returns. Might not be easy to break back into the side.

    Dean · 24/05/2016 at 22:04

    Pi$$ OFF McPherson mate.

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:28

    i think this bloke is trying to troll people

    ridiculous comment

Lesley · 24/05/2016 at 17:29

Hey community, just wanting to know if I'm still on track for a full premo team:

I would really appreciate your thoughts

    Stevo · 24/05/2016 at 19:12

    Need to get that midfield upgraded. Otherwise pretty solid.

Kevdog · 24/05/2016 at 17:34

here is my team

DEF: Shaw, Simpson, KKolo, Brown, DBJ, Adams (Hartley, Broad)
MID: Danger, Hanners, Ablett, Jelwood, Steven, Shiel, Libba, Keays (Smith, Davis, Macpherson)
RUC: Gawn, Martin
FWD: Dusty, Zorko, Barlow, Hall, Kerridge, Petracca (Tippa, Wells)

are these good trades ?
Brown to b.Williams
DBJ to Docherty

    Danners · 24/05/2016 at 19:13

    Good trades, although running a risk with two Carlton defenders

    Blueth · 24/05/2016 at 22:21

    your defense is making me emotional

      Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 22:23


Leeds17 · 24/05/2016 at 18:10

What to do with Tom Mitchell? Tempted to go to Pendles or Hanners, might be sideways but least those to are real Premos… potentially just a early in the week rage trade.

    Randomclcihe · 24/05/2016 at 21:45

    In not surprised that is the case that you have rage trade itis. Any player that is not 100 percent with the coach /group must be avoided. Any coach that is not 100 percent with his players must be avoided…glares at ross*….

    But. You must hold. Your research ya would have identities a ball magnet who was out scoring his sublime team mates on a per minute basis. That was the gamble you took that it would hold for a season proper. Should an injury or two hit the swans mids…who were fantastic against the hawks…you'll be in the money before you know it. Just chances are it won't happen. But go sideways and you lock in your losses and lose a trade.

    *Fyfeislife….you know they say about rules

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:29

    make him your final trade once all your lines are full

    sideways trading now… may as well give up

    randomcliche · 28/05/2016 at 00:10

    Dear God I hope you held!

      Leeds17 · 28/05/2016 at 02:16

      Haha yeah mate! Not bad from young Titch should never be mad at him only Longmire.

Tophawk · 24/05/2016 at 18:10

How long will Jonas get rubbed out for community? The hearing is not going well for Jonas. He has forfeited a one week discount with an early plea. He didn't take it, as he argued his actions were careless and not intentional. The judge is not impressed and has implied that he is lying.

I reckon he could cop at least 8 weeks now.

    Tophawk · 24/05/2016 at 18:19

    I was close. He got 7 weeks by the looks of it.

      Randomclcihe · 24/05/2016 at 21:49

      Bloke comes out on media says he'll cop his walk the goes on to argue… #foolish #deceitful #contrivedcrap #suckstobehim

Trade Gawn to Goldy – thoughts Community?

Before you shout me down, just looking for arguments both ways to make an informed decision as I know it is sideways and burns a trade which may not be worth it??
– Goldy is $7k cheaper and averaging 119ppg compared to Gawn average of 111ppg
– Goldy has two sub 100 scores and Gawn has five – more inconsistent
– Goldy averages 113 at Etihad and plays there 7 more times while Gawn averages 93 at MCG and plays there 6 more times

I have 23 trades left and Nic Nat as my other ruck, would prefer to focus on upgrading cash cows, but Gawn about to plummet and Goldy about to shoot up means this chance wont come again this season – what to do!!!!????

    johnno2908 · 24/05/2016 at 18:21

    Goody proven ultra premo. I'm really contemplating doing the same thing. Although you know when you do it, the beard will come out and go massive. He is playing a pretty much ruckless Port Adelaide this week. The trade to Goldy also gives you another reliable Captain option.

    Danners · 24/05/2016 at 19:14

    Seems stupid, Gawn is not a ruckman that much out of form. HOLD

    jockreynolds · 24/05/2016 at 19:14

    I reckon I'm doin it lads. Makes a hell of a lot of sense to me.

      Tommo09 · 24/05/2016 at 19:51

      Gawn scores huge

    FisherDan · 24/05/2016 at 19:26

    Why would you burn a trade in the ruck? Gawn as your number 2 isn't going so badly with three scores 160+. I had to burn a trade in the ruck last year because I (like many others) had the Skin-flute Minson who gave us NOTHING then got himself dropped. Gawn is no Minson!
    Trust your intestinal fortitude that made you select him in the first place.

    Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 19:34

    Didn't someone do a side trade of Pendlebury to Ablett this year?

      Brook · 24/05/2016 at 20:36

      I must admit I did and it still hurts … live and learn!

        Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 20:57

        Think Jock did it too? I could be wrong though.

    Randomclcihe · 24/05/2016 at 21:53

    I favour of gawn is potential to go real large and get massive avg. Goldy more likely to do it.

    Here is the killer. Nic nat to Goldy. If you belive in gawn you've gotta chop nic nat. Just an idea.

      Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 22:03

      Nic Nat to Goldy that's a spanner in the works.

    JamiesNinjas13 · 25/05/2016 at 15:27

    Surely you have more pressing concerns than a weak sideways trade especially when you haven't used many trades. A big argument against is you are wasting 1 trade. This is supercoach, not AFL fantasy.

      Randomcliche · 25/05/2016 at 21:15

      We just shark fishing. Wot u doing?

Jojo · 24/05/2016 at 18:22

DBJ > M.Byod
A.Gaff > J.Hopper

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:30


    @t_woof · 25/05/2016 at 16:44

    Surely Gaff will only miss one round if any, use your bench cover and hold him.
    Wasting 2 trades there, when no LTI's.

    Randomcliche · 25/05/2016 at 21:12

    Garbos in Canberra are on strike. Maybe they can come pick up your trade in their spare time. You missed the Boyd boat. Simpson to outscore from here.

Steeeve · 24/05/2016 at 18:33

22 trades and $343k in the kitty. Here's my team in case it helps you to help me.
Back: H Shaw, J Gibson, R Laird, K Kolodjashnij, A McDonald-Tipungwuti, D Byrne-Jones (M Brown, T Ruggles)
Mids: P Dangerfield, S Pendlebury, J Selwood, G Ablett, T Liberatore, O Wines, T Rockliff, G Hewett (D MacPherson, R Davis, J Smith)
Ruck: T Goldstein, N Naitanui (S Grimley)
Fwd: D Martin, A Hall, D Wells, C Wingard, S Kerridge, C Petracca (B Kennedy, C Menadue)

Which option do you prefer?
Byrne-Jones and MacPherson to Kade Simpson and Jacob Hopper
Byrne-Jones and Ben Kennedy to Brett Delidio

Other options would be Sam Docherty instead of Kade Simpson, or Daniel Wells (if still out) instead of BenKen.

Any thoughts greatly appreciated

    Stevo · 24/05/2016 at 19:04

    Option 1 looks solid. Wait another week on Deledio, though he could go large against the Dons this weekend.

    Tiges · 24/05/2016 at 19:07

    I'd be trading out DBJ to Williams and Menadue to a FWD or DEF premo (by swinging Tippa forward)… $550k is pretty steep for a defence premo and still reckon Lids hasn't bottomed out… all solid options though.

      Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 19:39


      Steeeve · 25/05/2016 at 10:17

      Footywire predicts LIds will keep dropping after that 125 comes out of his price, but I'm not so sure. Last year everyone kept waiting for him to drop and it just wasn't happening.

      Thinking I'll take your advice and go DBJ to Williams/Menadue to Lids.
      Unless of course Williams is dropped.

    Priddis this week

which out of these 3 options do I take?
Hewett to Gray/Priddas or
Brown to Boyd
Kenedy to Daulhaus

    option one.

    Danners · 24/05/2016 at 19:14

    Tough one, but Brown to Boyd

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:30

    option 1

    breakevens · 25/05/2016 at 13:56

    brown to boyd

RoughNuts · 24/05/2016 at 18:41

Ok community what are peoples thoughts on McVeigh from the swannies. Break even is 131 so you could hold at least a week but surely to good a player not to come home as a top 8-10 backman this year.

    Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 18:54

    Could hold for 2-3 of weeks the way he is scoring, doesn't get any midfield time it seems.

    And no can't see him being a top 10 defensive player this year, which is kinda sad because he is a great player.

    Might grab him as a very cheap D6/D7 though later.

    Leeds17 · 24/05/2016 at 19:16

    I brought him in 2 weeks ago and have regretted in, looks really off the pace, there were signs late Friday that he was coming good but genuine concerns he's over the hill.

      RoughNuts · 24/05/2016 at 19:34

      Yeah i was meant to watch him closely on Friday night when I was at the G but ended up having to many cans so don't actually remember to much of the match. My worry with McVeigh is he got 28 touches a 3-4 wks ago now and took 14 marks but only scored 91. He is getting close to sub $400k though which is to good a price I reckon to ignore. Best scenario for me is DBJ has a week or 2 off and I wait for McVeigh to bottom out completely and swoop on him at around $400k.

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:31

Make Kennedy Captain if you have him against the Suns
Good call-Bad call???

    RoughNuts · 24/05/2016 at 19:38

    May is back and will be looking to make up to his team mates. I thought I read somewhere Rory Thompson could be back also. Risky pick but could pay massive dividends. I'm saying a not for me call, safer picks this wk.

    Blueth · 24/05/2016 at 20:10

    dont see it as risky at all. He can be dodgy but not against the suns at home.

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:31

Stevo · 24/05/2016 at 19:00

Sterling Podcast and rousing speech Jock.

Trade conundrum, have $53k kitty. Team:

B: Shaw, Rance, Rich KK, AMT, DBJ (Hartley, Rug Munch)
C: Pendles, Danger, Ward, Selwood, Parker, Ablett, J.Smith (Keays, Gresham, MacPherson)
R: Goldy, Gawn (Grimley)
F: Zorko, Martin, Hall, Wells, Kerridge, Petraca (M.Brown, Menapoo).

To get Priddis, I'd have to trade DBJ & J.Smith to get Priddis & B.Williams. That would take the mid to near full premo.

Think it's too early for Deledio & Docherty too expensive.

Any other options really appreciated.

    Danners · 24/05/2016 at 19:16

    Priddis isn't a must have this week. Maybe trade Brown to Montagna/Z.Merrett or another premo forward

      Stevo · 24/05/2016 at 20:11

      Thanks Danners, though that move would put Petraca at F7 while weaker Rookie J.Smith at M8. And moving on Brown loses that DPP swing with AMT.

Tiges · 24/05/2016 at 19:11

16 trades with $90k left in the bank.
I'm considering downgrading DBJ to Lee/Tucker and banking the $200k.
I'd be able to in R11 then trade out Davis/Hewett for Mathieson/Gray and then in R12 trade out Tippa for Dahlhaus.
Would only leave a mid spot left in the forward and defence for Dusty and Rance in R14.






Tommo09 · 24/05/2016 at 19:12

Def: Shaw, Laird, Docherty, Tippa, DBJ, Brown (Adams, Byrne)
Mid: Danger, GAJ, Parker, Pendles, Hannebery, Libba, Smith, Petracca (Keays, Gresham, MacPherson

Fwd: Martin, Franklin, Barlow, Hall, Wells, Kerridge (Kennedy, Menadue)

Thinking Menadue and Gresham/DBJ to Priddis and Hopper/Williams
$345k and 19 trades left
Scored 2412 last weekend and am ranked 2500

    Blueth · 24/05/2016 at 20:02

    medadsson · 24/05/2016 at 20:52

    On local news tonight … if you can believe him, Lyon said that Barlow is a definite starter for the game against St Kilda.

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:32

    Ross is a flog #putyourchopsticksoutforbarlow

    Alec · 25/05/2016 at 17:42

    Traded Barlow to zorko last week as I couldn't handle it any longer!

SC16 · 24/05/2016 at 19:21

mitch robinson-jarryd lyons? i need some money and he looks a very good option

    Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 19:31

    Nah you missed him I got him for 240k but he also got dumped for 2 rounds. (R7+R8)

    Even though he's a good player for some reason his JS is shaky.

    I'd probably take the punt on Wingard.

    Blueth · 24/05/2016 at 19:51

    was so close to selecting Lyons over Crouch but they're both in and out so often i dont know what to think any more. No idea why the crows don't play Lyons more often, they're begging for decent midfielders and he keeps playing well the getting dropped

      Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 21:05

      I think it's because they keep wanting to get game time into Brad Crouch after being sidelined for so long, and Lyons isn't the best defensively, but he is a quality ball user and usually hits the scoreboard too.

      He actually got 6 tackles last week so his pressure must've been decent. He scores really well in supercoach due to his DE and scored a 96 off 20 touches last week with only 70% TOG.

      The other thing is he has been involved in almost all of their better games, win against richmond, win vs sydney, loss by 3 to hawks, win vs freo.

      They better bloody give him another run this week or they are fools.

adam henwood · 24/05/2016 at 19:22

hey jock and higgo,thoughts please on cognilio,neale as a pod in my midfield,V dalhaus as a dpp and my last fwd for later on in the year?team as it is,is pretty good,going well altho keep shizenhousing my C but still in top 100 ;P 82nd..going for the big prize boys,just need to get this next few decisions right,im 2 shy of full premium and dont give a stuff about worrying about full premo backs,ive got 4,thatll do,its our strategy this year as sticking too it,no need for 6 primos in backs,they all suck sometimes anyway 😛 Adam

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:37

    Well with typing / grammar like that i highly doubt you have the brains to be ranked in the top 20,000 let alone 82nd. That said, I also highly doubt someone ranked 82nd would be asking a pretty straightforward / stupid question.

    That said…

    If you can justify it, then do it. Don't ask us what we think. You tell us what YOU think and tell us WHY

    Learn from this, and maybe one day you actually will be ranked 82nd

    Good Luck

Stef martin to Goldy? Only 100k difference

Or mitch brown to priddis? 200k difference

Mad to trade martin?

    Tom · 24/05/2016 at 19:58

    im in the same boat and thinking about getting rid of martin, might give him chance to make back his losses though and get gawn in soon enough

      bUCKET__ · 24/05/2016 at 21:33

      Looked to me like West was bought in to basically nullify Gawn (ala Tom Campbell). It worked, but pushed Stef forward for a lot of the game. And the ball wasn't there all that much.

      Watching him take back the main ruck role this week.

    Blueth · 24/05/2016 at 20:00

    people say he has a totally new 'role'. I'm not sure what this means when he is still first ruck, perhaps someone can fill us in…

      Anil · 24/05/2016 at 23:28

      He was rotating between rucking and playing fwd. And playing fwd for Brisbane is supercoach suicide

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:39

    you answered your own question at the end there…..

    dont trade Martin

Blueth · 24/05/2016 at 19:49

Pre Round 9 team (Rank: 2556, top 1%)

DEF: Shaw, Docherty, Simpson, Bartel, Laird, Hurn (Brown, Cuddles)
MID: Danger, Parker, Shiel. Bont, Ablett, Libba, Priddis, B. Crouch (i know i know, calm down) (Hewett, J.Smith, Davis)
RUX: Goldy, Gawn (Cox)
FWD: Merrett, Greene, Hall, Wells, Petracca, AMT (McGovern. Grimley)

Definitely gonna cut Brown for Williams if he's selected. My question is, do i go to Dusty (BE 83) from Tippa (BE 45) this week or hold?

    Blueth · 24/05/2016 at 19:51

    20 trades left btw.

      Tiges · 24/05/2016 at 22:48

      Team looks solid, plenty of POD's.
      Would you consider trading out Wells to Dusty and then Tippa can go around the bye rounds instead?

        Blueth · 24/05/2016 at 23:03

        Would you still suggest doing that if Wells is named this week?

Tom · 24/05/2016 at 19:55

williams or hopper?

    Papsmear · 24/05/2016 at 19:58


    Northernsoul74 · 24/05/2016 at 20:36

    Wait and see if Williams keeps his place. If he does with Boyd and potentially Adams, Suckling it's a good sign. His form warrants keeping his place.

      Steeeve · 24/05/2016 at 23:06

      Then he'll still make way for JJ in a few weeks I fear

        Northernsoul74 · 25/05/2016 at 10:56

        JJ is at least 5 weeks away and they will be ultra cautious with him.

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:39

    If you want to distance yourself from the heard, dont go Hopper

      Southern S · 25/05/2016 at 16:42

      Yep I already failed with MacPherson can't take the Hopper risk.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 25/05/2016 at 13:58

    Whoever is named.

Tommo09 · 24/05/2016 at 19:58

Captain and VC options this week??
Thinking Danger C and maybe Martin/Shaw for VC
Any other better options??

    Papsmear · 24/05/2016 at 20:52

    I threw the C on Shaw last week. But throwing the VC on him this week not sure if I will Go Pendles or Danger? Think Danger might come out and be a bloody ripper this week with the last 2 poor showings and the lose to the Pies?

      Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 21:15

      I'm thinking Hannebery (or maybe Parker) in what will be a big clash vs North on friday night,

      Or possibly Gawn vs Port.

      Then there's Shaw vs Carlton at Etihad, even after a 200 not convinced he's my best choice this week.

      Then probably captain Danger (or even Docherty – risky)

      There's even Ablett or Nic Nat on the Sunday who I could captain too.

      Too many choices right now………………

        Tommo09 · 24/05/2016 at 21:20

        Shaw is up against Adelaide I think

          Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 21:33

          Yep it's danger vs carlton at Etihad, I reckon he'll go big.

          Not too Shaw about Shaw at Adelaide Oval.

    Leeds17 · 24/05/2016 at 21:13

    Montagna VC Danger C

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:40

Top 6 defenders that are SuperCoach relevant??

    Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 21:19

    Dawson, Docherty, Simpson, Laird, Rance, Bartel, Boyd

    The reason I have Dawson as my no.1 is because he is about to hit all australian form, and Shaw is going to spud it up and get about 20-30 for the rest of the year 🙂

    That's my top 7 can't think of who to cull.

      Tommo09 · 24/05/2016 at 21:25

      Not Gibson

        Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 21:34

        Nah not for me, he'd be 7-8.

        Realistically there'd be 10+ guys who can make the top 6.

          Thomas · 24/05/2016 at 21:38

          Who do you think they are

            Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 23:28

            Shaw, Docherty, Simpson, Laird, Rance, Bartel, Boyd, Gibson, Enright. There's 9 I can think of.

            Maybe Pittard, Savage, Williams, Rampe, Rich or even Jeremy Howe could all possibly have a crack at the top ten too, there's a long way to go in the season.

            Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 23:30

            Would like to see McVeigh in there too but not sure at this rate.

      Rooster · 24/05/2016 at 22:02

      Why do people continue with the stupid Dawson "jokes"?
      Soft as sh** and not one bit funny!

        Derek · 24/05/2016 at 22:50

        Have you ever watched him play?

        Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 23:21

        Emotions are running high tonight on the internet.

        @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:41

        you should get Dawson in your team

        he is amazing and ultra premo DEF player

      @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:42

      Dawson of the Zac variety is so amazing. Everyone keeps saying that what he did against Richmond was a dog act, i call it bravery #putyourchopsticksoutfordawsey

    Lachie · 24/05/2016 at 21:42

    Dawson, Dawson, Dawson, Dawson, Dawson and I'd probably chuck big Dawson in there too.

      Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 22:02

      Spot on

Joe · 24/05/2016 at 20:33

Going with a double downgrade this week community:
Brown to Williams & Menadue to Hopper via dpp
This gives me 17 trades and 405k, leaving my team like this:

B: Shaw, Simpson, Gibson, Rance, AMT, Laird (Ruggles, Williams)
M: Danger, Pendles, Hannebery, Shiel, Libba, Cripps, Smith, Hopper (Davis, Keays, Dunkley)
R: Gawn, Naitanui (Loersch)
F: Dusty, Zorko, Hall, Greene, Wells, Petracca (Kerridge, Adams)

Thoughts community? Should I do something else instead?

    Derek · 24/05/2016 at 20:41

    Priddis is a good price this week, playing the Suns at HOME

      Papsmear · 24/05/2016 at 21:14

      Menadue to hopper isnt much of a downgrade and well you will eventually trade out hopper?

        Papsmear · 24/05/2016 at 21:17

        If your going to downgrade down grade big with a fallen premo or injured who will miss many matches. Menadue to hopper is not worth it at all!

          Joe · 24/05/2016 at 21:25

          Might just stick with Brown to Williams and go Menadue to Priddis giving me 90k and 17 trades left instead!

            Rocksta · 25/05/2016 at 02:01

            Definitely the way to go

Micky · 24/05/2016 at 20:34

boyd or docherty

    siri · 24/05/2016 at 20:46


      Papsmear · 24/05/2016 at 20:54

        Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 22:00

        So what is this comment?

        self centered
        You think you are such a know it all and you are a narcissist!

        Nice job Pap. Pot calling the kettle black.

          Papsmear · 24/05/2016 at 22:21

          LOL you are a Skippy turd like someone said a week or 2 ago. cant even come up with your own material and steal other you are a loser Southern. They were right calling you a Skippy turd!

            Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 22:27

            You have some sort of deficiency that is quite obvious.

            I'm not going to call you names or anything like that to feed your strange lust for conflict, but I do feel sorry for you.

              Papsmear · 24/05/2016 at 23:02

              Don't feel sorry for me! I want no sympathy for you! I know your mum is lacking a deficiency and it a lack of protein by not swallowing your egotistical, narcissistic, think you know it all loser arse!

    Blueth · 24/05/2016 at 23:08

    Papsmear or southern S?

      Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 23:13


        Blueth · 24/05/2016 at 23:14

        just wondering who to trade, probably paps

          Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 23:20

          Yeah I'd trade Paps, Southern is a keeper.


      MY TWO CENTS · 25/05/2016 at 13:46

      Double downgrade!

Hawker · 24/05/2016 at 21:04

Need help should I trade Birchall? nearly below 400K bleeding cash. Hawthorn's draw opens up, should I just stick with him.
Thoughts much appreciated

    Papsmear · 24/05/2016 at 21:11

    IMO keep him should do well in the next 8 rds??? But I'm no expert. He has Bri, Mel, Ess, NM, GC, PA, SYD, RICH, CAR and Mel? Its ur call? Think he might do well in this run? You have had him this long.

      Papsmear · 24/05/2016 at 21:12

      Or dump him for Williams to free up cash?

    Don't Blush Baby' · 24/05/2016 at 21:12

    You must be going OK Hawker if thats your biggest issue, for what its worth I would hold him atm, but probably not in the best 8 backs

      Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 21:37

      Not a chance to be in the best 8 backs at this rate. I'd still hold though he may score ok for the remainder of the season and then maybe cull him later if you really have to.

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:42

    nah dont trade him.

SammyBoy · 24/05/2016 at 21:13

Is Wingard a legitimate trade in this week? Only $380k and average 90-95 last two years, seems a steal

    Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 21:40

    So you're combining his averages to make him more appealing?

    He averaged 80 and then 97. Now he's averaging 75 this year.

    But anyway I'll stop over analyzing (if it's possible for me to do that) and say yes he's a good buy at the moment.

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:42

    i got him last week and he treated me too a tasty 100+ score

    risky but big ball get big win

Neverweaken · 24/05/2016 at 21:13

Ok. Really not sure what to do. Team is
Shaw, Simpson, Docherty, Boyd, DBJ, Hartley. (Brown, Ruggles)
Ablett, Treloar, Danger, Selwood, Libba, Zaharakis, Hewett, Oliver, (Smith, Hall, MacPherson.)
NicNat, Goldie. Currie
Tippett, Martin, Kerridge, AMT, BenKen, Petracca. (Suckling, Adams)
342k and 18 trades.
Thinking big upgrade. DBJ out and has to be BenKen out to bring in for the cash for Priddis and Kennedy.
Or Priddis and Buddy. Going big and bold!

Leaves me not much but hopefully some Rookies about to trade Essendon and Melb players into at bye time

    Nathan · 25/05/2016 at 07:52

    With the b/e in mind you need to treade bdj and brown
    Thatll give you 635 + the 342 you have leaves 977
    So id look at maybe an oremo back and Wingard in the fwd line

BanthaFodder71 · 24/05/2016 at 21:13

My side as it stands
DEF: Shaw – Simpson – Docherty – Dea – Adams – Laird (Tippa / DBJ)
MID: Danger – Parker – Jelwood – Zaha – GAJ – Libba – Smitchell – J. Smith (Menadue/Keays/D. Mac)
RUC: Goldy – Gawn (M. Cox)
FWD: Zorko – Hall – Kerridge – Wells – B. Kennedy – Petracca (M. Brown/Papley)

Have 187k before trades

thinking Gawn for Nic Nat
then possibly zaha for Dependlebury, Hanners or L. Neale but you can't trust Lyon to pick who he should atm.
Both have huge BE's this week and will lose plenty

Pendlebury has exploded over the last month!
Hanners has a S.D of 10 which is insane!
OR a simple Gawn to NicNat and DBJ to Williams leaves me a nice 480K in the bank

Any thoughts or suggestions appreciated community

    Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 21:48

    You can trust Lyons to play one player and that is Lachie Neale, because if he drops him he'll leave the club and then they may as well merge with a WAFL team and leave the AFL!

    Don't like your trades. I bet three weeks ago you were walking around gloating to your mates how you got the steal of the year with Gawn and how he's top dog in the ruck division, now you're throwing him to the bloody curb!

    If you bought Zaha for 415k like I did, hold him too, there's no real loss there and he will score good again, had 31 touches last week but a horrible DE. Think priddis….same boat, now scoring better.

    You've got Sam Mitchell stinking it up like no other, but no mention of culling him? He's lost 100k and Zaha is still up 50k!

    Stick by your guns.

    Lets keep it simple and logical mate, DBJ to Williams and Menadue to one of the premo mids, so you can chuck Smith on to the bench, zaha will be your M8 and a fine one at that.

    Welcome 🙂

      Papsmear · 24/05/2016 at 21:51

      Southern S you are suck a self centered egotistical person why dont you shut your mouth for once. You think you are such a know it all and you are a narcissist! Give it a rest…..Welcome : )

        Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 21:56

        You obviously don't understand my humour, nor can you read properly.

        Welcome 🙂

          Papsmear · 24/05/2016 at 22:08

          You obviously dont understand when to shut your mouth and people are sick of you! Someone called you a a Skippy turd last week or the week before and starting to think they are right! You need to get one of Wayno's fly traps or leaf screens because every time you open your mouth sh*t spews from your mouth or some sort of sh*t coming out of it that attracts fly's! People asking simple questions and you try to demean them!

            Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 22:17


            Notice how my two top lines are so ridiculous? It's called humour.

            You can trust Lyons to play one player and that is Lachie Neale, because if he drops him he'll leave the club and then they may as well merge with a WAFL team and leave the AFL!

            Don't like your trades. I bet three weeks ago you were walking around gloating to your mates how you got the steal of the year with Gawn and how he's top dog in the ruck division, now you're throwing him to the bloody curb!

            There it is again for you, try to read carefully.

            Now back up the page a bit someone asks a simple question of who is the better player out of Boyd and Docherty, both are scoring really well.

            You reply with 'Can't believe you're asking that question'

            Go take a look at yourself in the mirror you can't judge me lol, you were a prick to that person and acted like a know it all yourself.

            Learn how to acknowledge humour from a serious post while you're at it.

Tommo09 · 24/05/2016 at 21:28

How long are DBJ and Adams out for??
Which one do I trade?

    Papsmear · 24/05/2016 at 21:38

    Adams Test and DBJ TBC

      Papsmear · 24/05/2016 at 21:41

      If DBJ plays this week I'm trading but I'm holding Adams BE 70 and its obtainable with a ave of 87. DBJ BE is 106 he's done

    Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 21:41

    Adams has to bloody play this week it's ridiculous, tiny fracture in the finger man up you lazy prick look at the doggies backline at the moment!

    Joking but hope he plays.

      Papsmear · 24/05/2016 at 21:45

      Coming from someone who doesn't even play footy and doesn't even know or comprehend what its like to have a fractured figure. You are far from a reliable source! You a doctor?

        Papsmear · 24/05/2016 at 21:46

        Are you joking?

Kevin · 24/05/2016 at 22:11

Hey guys just curious what would be the better plan.
Upgrading Hartley to Bartel or upgrading a kerridge to a Robbin Gray next week who will be around 500k?

    Papsmear · 24/05/2016 at 22:16

    Hartley has a BE of 50 think you might want to keep him for a little longer but I'm no expert by any means! Might wanna ask Mr. Know It All Southern S sure he has mind boggling advice whether is sarcasm or truth? He thinks he's so funny!

    Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 22:42

    Option 2 for me.

    SunnyCoast Blazers · 24/05/2016 at 22:47

    Def option 2

Connor · 24/05/2016 at 22:23

Choose 2 of:
R. Gray

    Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 22:43

    That's tough, probably Gray and Priddis due to such good value.

      Papsmear · 24/05/2016 at 22:50

      Oh c'mon you dumb Ahole, you know it all? Priddis (502,800) a BE of 56 and Gray (514,200) with a BE of 136! Why you illadvising people! You are a chump Southern S!

        Papsmear · 24/05/2016 at 22:51

    SunnyCoast Blazers · 24/05/2016 at 22:46

    Priddis n Gray

    The Mountain · 24/05/2016 at 22:57

    ID say hanners and take your pick with the other two, hanners hasn't had a game under 100 and either of the other two are more than capable of being top 10. If you choose gray get him in about 2 weeks when he bottoms out.

    P.S. You might want to ease up to Papsmear

      Papsmear · 24/05/2016 at 23:04

      Say's who? Just voicing my comments like the rest?

        Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 23:18

        I can answer the question.

        The Mountain is the who.

        See the name at the top of his comment?

          Papsmear · 24/05/2016 at 23:22

          Southern S I think he can spek for himself. Doesn't need some spineless jelly fish like you to speak for him!

            Southern S · 24/05/2016 at 23:33

            I'm not speaking for him you're just an easy target for me to rile up.

                  Look all in saying lads is it just pointless. Your each trying to get a rouse out of each other, mainly because you don't agree with others opinions, which is with in your right to, but there is no point continuously bickering about it. It just clogs the feeds and doesn't any of the questions for those who are seeking advise to improve there teams.

                  Papsmear · 24/05/2016 at 23:42

                  You aren't feeding me? But I'm feeding your mum, good thing you dont have any brother's or sister's! She told me she got fired from the sperm bank for drinking on the job! But I still like her a good woman! Gulp! Welcome! ; )

    Hannebery and Priddis

Dan · 24/05/2016 at 22:31

Anyone have much insight into Hopper and Williams JS? Looking at holding Byrne Jones and Wells, trading Brown and Papley for Hopper and Williams. Getting aroused by the talls at Sydney too. Anyone looking at a shark move bringing Buddy more shark-esque move to Tippet soon? Both were majestic last weekend and my tenner is on Buddy to boot a tonne this year gents. Thoughts community?

    Southern S · 25/05/2016 at 13:48

    There's talk of players coming back for GWS like Griffen that may take his spot, but if GWS wants to keep their players in good condition I reckon they'll use Hopper all season as he is competitive and AFL ready.

    He might get dropped here and there but should have better JS than Williams that is for sure. Williams looks good though and Beveridge does seem to reward young guys who play well.

    Thing is can you afford to get a 190k rookie like Hopper at this time of the year? Also as another person here stated remember Papley's first two scores, that one made me think.

    Tippet I'm not sure about, but he's getting it done and has that Ruck/Fwd swing (which in my case would be really handy as I also have a swingman on my ruck bench)

    Just not sure he'll keep it up though. Buddy Seems ultra reliable this season and he will get a big score soon I imagine.

People thinking to trade out Gawn are dumb.

    Papsmear · 24/05/2016 at 23:15

    Personally I wouldn't? But its your call?

      Dave · 24/05/2016 at 23:26

      he's the third highest scoring ruck in the comp, and up to two weeks ago he was the highest scoring ruck. Trades are more valuable than that.

Stevo · 25/05/2016 at 07:02

20 trades remain. $53k…

Option 1: Brown & DBJ to Montagna & Williams,
Option 2: J.Smith & DBJ to Priddis & Williams?

If Option 1, Montagna or Deledio?

    Kev · 25/05/2016 at 07:56

    Way too early to jump off Smith.

    Go with option one and Joey

      Stevo · 25/05/2016 at 08:01

      Thanks Kev. Joey option puts Petraca on the Fwd bench. Not ideal as I don't have a swing in the mids. Can work on that next week.

    I think Smith has more money to make. so option. Joey for me.

Nick · 25/05/2016 at 08:15

Thoughts on VC and C this week:
Shaw into pendels/ danger
dusty into pendels/ danger
Danger into priddis

    Grant · 25/05/2016 at 11:41

    Shaw. On fire and using the ball really well.

    Wattsieesq · 25/05/2016 at 11:59

    I like Shaw into Penddles

      Southern S · 25/05/2016 at 13:40

      Like this, plenty of good options this round though.

    Richard · 25/05/2016 at 13:01

    Dusty into Priddis

      Southern S · 25/05/2016 at 13:41

      Like this too lol

      Dusty playing really well and Priddis at home v GCS.

Harley · 25/05/2016 at 08:46

Needing some help moving forward and who to possibly get rid of and upgrade. Team is currently

Shaw, docherty, B. Smith, dea, AMT, DBJ
(Sheridan, brown)

Mids: danger, Parker, ablett, cripps, wines, Barlow, kerridge, Hewitt (keays, Davis, McPherson)

Rick: goldy, Gawn (Wyatt)

Fwd: zorko, merrit, Waite, hall, Greene, wells
(Kennedy, petracca)

With all my outs the last couple of weeks Ive some how got stuck with petracca and Kennedy on my forward bench. Can swap with Barlow and kerridge at some stage.

Need a couple more good defenders which I'll pick up around the bye mark. Wondering if I should trade wells or Waite? Thinking this week I'll go Hewitt to Williams and then swap Williams to defence and trade DBJ to priddis. Next week pick up Robbie gray. Any thoughts on a better idea? Have 18 trades left and $72 k in bank.

Cheers 🙂

    Richard · 25/05/2016 at 12:06

    Williams job security an issue with Boyd and Suckling coming back.Wait for team selection.Wells injury a concern see if he's selected this week.If DBJ Not selected no damage done there you could hold an extra week.Hewitt still has money to make so i would hold.Seeing you have 72k in the bank and you want Priddis this week and depending if you think Barlow's going to last the year.Trade Waite,move barlow to forward line and get priddis for approx 30k spend.Waite has done his job for you with some big scores and now seems to be wilting.Priddis proven performer.

breakevens · 25/05/2016 at 09:42

How long does Josh Smith have left in our teams

    Francis · 25/05/2016 at 09:44

    His BE is 3, at least another 2-3 weeks

      I N Pieman · 25/05/2016 at 09:56

      Hi Bye is awkward. Despite his low BE I'm considering an early move to Matho next week

        Grant · 25/05/2016 at 11:41

        Totally dependent on how many trades you have left. It's time to start upgrading and not continually making cash.

        Tommo · 25/05/2016 at 12:46

        Or even Trengove in 2 weeks?

          Average Joe · 25/05/2016 at 17:40

          Yeh good umpire

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 25/05/2016 at 11:46

    Turning him into pendles after their bye.

    Southern S · 25/05/2016 at 13:39

    Trade him after his bye round.

      Southern S · 25/05/2016 at 13:39


    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:44

    until the bye possibly if he continues to score 60+

Blake Dobay · 25/05/2016 at 09:47

Great podcast boys cheers

Dice · 25/05/2016 at 10:17

Who we start on field out of Adams, Tippa or Mitch Brown?

    Tommo · 25/05/2016 at 10:40

    Tippa for me

      Jess_coach · 25/05/2016 at 11:33

      Adams if fit

    I N Pieman · 25/05/2016 at 14:03

    Tippa for me. Closely followed by Adams

Tommo · 25/05/2016 at 10:42

What to do with Stef Martin? Seeing Trent West in the side really disturbed me and with a breakeven of 143, looks as though he is going to drop further. I already have Goldy but i am tempted to trade him on. Thoughts???

    Saundo · 25/05/2016 at 12:30

    I'm holding, hopefully he'll come good! Other priorities atm

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:49

    Trent West poses an interesting conundrum in my cortex… this is his last chance to play AFL (in my opinion) so maybe he will go all in and try to make something of himself. I currently dont have a playing Ruc/fwd (that plays) so if he can keep his spot then he will make an amazing bench / cover player

    I N Pieman · 25/05/2016 at 14:02

    I'd hold him till you've finished your upgrades then review him. I'll be doing the same with Libba

      The Ranger · 25/05/2016 at 14:33

      Sideways trading is a last resort in my opinion.
      The only time I'll sideways trade before the byes is in the first two rounds, in order to get the right rookies, or due to a long term injury or suspension.
      All the other keepers just have to stay until the byes and then you can readjust if your trade/cash situation allows.

    Average Joe · 25/05/2016 at 17:43

    Keep him until Gawn drops in price, then do the trade after round 14 (Gawns Bye Round) and before round 15 (Stefs bye). Thoughts umpire?

Grant · 25/05/2016 at 11:33

Good morning all, a little advice if I may (I know it's early in the week still)
Current team
Shaw, Docherty, Simpson, Burgoyne, DBJ, Laird, Hartley, Brown
Danger, Parker, Ablett, Liber, Oliver, Smith, Parish, Petracca, Hewitt, Gresham, Dunkley
Goldy, Gawn, Grimley
Merrett, Reiwoldt, Kerridge, Wells, BenKen, Greene, Milera, Cox

Have $895k in the bank and 17 trades.

Thinking of DBJ to Pittard & Parish to Neale

I know I am missing out of Hopper, but I have made my money and now it's time to load up on Premiums.
Leaves me $484k in the bank and like Pittard and Neale as they are only in 3% of teams.

Thoughts please.

    Boltons blues · 25/05/2016 at 11:49

    They are good pods, but I'd stay away from pitard and go Gibson or Boyd
    And for an extra 50k you can get Pendles or save 80k and get Priddas

      Grant · 25/05/2016 at 12:03

      Cheers Botls, Pendles is in 25% and Priddis 18% (likely to rise) of teams.
      Gibson in 18%.
      I know there's a reason for this, but really looking to go against the trend.

      I like the Boyd option.

        Southern S · 25/05/2016 at 13:38

        I'm a little worried Boyd will get rested later in the season (round 22 against the Bombers for example) as Doggies should be playing finals.

    Wattsieesq · 25/05/2016 at 12:04

    I'd look at fallen premo's such as priddis and Gray before Neale. Your midfield looks skinny. I'd look to upgrade there rather than complete your back line.

    cashcows · 25/05/2016 at 12:58

    Dont mind the pittard trade but you need more ultra premos in midfield, way too skinny. Gray and Priddis are options or just straight up pendles and that like.

      Grant · 25/05/2016 at 16:01

      Thanks CC, taking the advice to pump in the prems in the midfield. Ward and Gibbs in for Parish and Oliver.

Wattsieesq · 25/05/2016 at 11:54

Great Podcast guys. Higgo telling Jock to have a spell for the second week in a row is just becoming an instant classic. Keep up the great work

Saundo · 25/05/2016 at 12:22

I'm tossing up between Cotchin Gray or JPK? Any advice would be appreciated !

    Richard · 25/05/2016 at 12:37

    Cotchin to inconsistent.Gray dropping in price could hold off one more week and then pounce.He's ports number 1 man.JPK proven performer but other mids for sydney like parker,hannas,mitchell share big points.I would go Gray over JPK,BUT DEPENDS ON YOUR BYE SPREAD COMING UP.

      Southern S · 25/05/2016 at 13:32


    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:50


    Tiger train on its way to finals

      I N Pieman · 25/05/2016 at 13:57

      Have you had Cotchin in your team before Wheels? Hell of a ride. And not a pleasant one

        @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 14:05

        hahaha PIEMAN as a long time tiger supporter and supercoach player i can say to your face that NO.. absolutely NOT

        No Cotchin in my team and he will never set foot in it..

        But you gotta jump on the Tiger Choo Choo Train when were on the road to a fourth straight first week of finals elimination

        Choo Choo!

bobby · 25/05/2016 at 12:30

can petracca become a premium if not why

    cashcows · 25/05/2016 at 12:56

    He has every chance to become a cripps/omeara of past years but they are rare.
    He might become premo but he definitely won't be ultra premo. Depends what you looking for I guess but dont hold your breath.

    Danners · 25/05/2016 at 13:26

    No, its his first season playing AFL, might be an alright F7/M9 though

      Southern S · 25/05/2016 at 13:32

      Agreed. The Mid/Fwd swing is probably the only reason to hold onto him. He's only been getting 20 odd touches a game.

      clarea · 25/05/2016 at 14:00

      To keep Petracca as a M8 or F6 could well be a good move as it enables you to have stronger bench that I mean you could keep a proven player such as HEWETT instead of a Matheison if you were to go with Priddus . Really would boil down to Petracca /Hewett VS Priddus./Matheison depends on your other coverage but if you did it next week for GRAY your bench would end up with something like Matheison McPherson Gresham .One injury and your in trouble

    Derek · 25/05/2016 at 13:33

    They always get tired. Seen it every year.

      @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:51

      agreed. these dam SC rookies with light and enthusiasm in their eyes

      clarea · 25/05/2016 at 16:21

      too true Derek but petracca is not really a first yr player like hopper he can handle it better

        Average Joe · 25/05/2016 at 17:45

        Did your crystal ball tell you that? Wait and see, but most rookies hit some sort of rookie wall during the year and drop off

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:51

    because he is a rookie

    he makes $

    he has a shit game

    he gets his head cut off


      Southern S · 25/05/2016 at 13:56

      So true, there are rare exceptions but not convinced Petracca is one after a game scoring 105 off 20 odd touches. (against an undermanned Brisbane)

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 25/05/2016 at 13:57

    Maybe in years to come but not this year.
    Look at the quality available in the mids and up fwd petrecca is well below that for scoring potential and consistency.

    bob · 25/05/2016 at 16:27

    If he can kick goals instead of behinds he could easily be Melbourne highest SC ave fwd this year.

      Southern S · 25/05/2016 at 16:52

      That's true, seen him miss a few. Hogan should be their top scoring forward this year though.

Danners · 25/05/2016 at 13:25

Great podcast boys! Had a nice couple of weeks to get up to 1600 in overall rank. Not sure on who to trade in my team.

DEF: Shaw, Simpson, Rance, Boyd, DBJ, AMT (Hartley, Brown)
MID: Dangerfield, Hannebery, Pendlebury, Ablett, Shiel, Libba, Keays, J.Smith (MacPherson, Hewett, Dunkley)
RUCK: Naitanui, Goldstein (Chol)
FWD: Dahlhaus, Hall, Barlow, Martin, Petracca, Kerridge (M.McGovern, Menadue)
$334,800 in the bank and 17 trades

Would like to get Zorko/Deledio (not sure which one first) but most of my forward rookies still have cash to make. So I was thinking of going…
DBJ to Premo defender under $500k
Brown to Williams
Thoughts would be great thanks community

    Southern S · 25/05/2016 at 13:30

    Sounds good to me, I'm trading Hartley and keeping brown but that's only to keep my Def/Fwd swing.

    Rooster · 25/05/2016 at 13:38

    Laird would be your man. Reasonably high ceiling but his great appeal is he is nice and consistent.
    Hasn't had less than 20 possessions and has only been under 90SC points once this year – 79 v the Hawks. High of 127.
    This sort of consistency for a back premium under 500k makes him a lock for mine. Compared to Gibson for example who is a roller coaster.

      Danners · 25/05/2016 at 14:06

      Thanks guys, I initially was going to trade Laird in as that premo defender, but I was wondering if you guys had other options. I will probably get a premo mid and Mathieson in next week.

    I N Pieman · 25/05/2016 at 13:53

    Gday Danners. I'd see DJB as a downgrade option to B Williams. If you could squeeze another premo into your mids it would be handy soon. MACP & Dunkley not doing much is annoying. I'd give some though to trading MacP Subbing Kerridge into the mids & grabing a FWD premo. It would make a mid upgrade easier next week by having Kerridges currency to leverage off for that move.

clare · 25/05/2016 at 13:47

is it wise to trade dbj and brown for priddus./Williams to fill your last few premium spots .I don't think so To end up with 22 great prridus type premiums and 8 Williams types kicking it to each other in the WAFL or BOX HILL when you have ablett and simpson out injured causing 2 doughnuts is not good I think I WOULD RATHER KEEP one on each line whos not playing WAFL and have Adams and AMT scoring 80 instead of ablett and simpson doughnutting up in the coaches box.Does any body agree I am going to keep DBJ and Brown in preference to Simpson and Williams given TUCKER is my d8 .AGREE OR NOT

    Tommo · 25/05/2016 at 13:59

    Wliiams isn't really considered a keeper tbh. He is brought in to make money and to offer DPP if needed.

      Southern S · 25/05/2016 at 16:50

      Exactly. As long as you have your second defensive bench a best 22 player you're good.

@wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 13:57

Community Service Announcement :

A lot of talk this week on sideways trades and double trading in DEF line

My advice is the same as always.

Get your MID / FWD line sorted BEFORE your DEF line.



We are getting into the silly season (bye rounds) and we need cool, calm, collected heads into this period. Don't make stupid trades. Try to avoid upgrading your DEF lines until you have your FWD/MID sorted and remember that just because everyone is making the same trade (Hopper) doesn't mean you have do it to

    clarea · 25/05/2016 at 14:55

    can you give me a reason why not def first Is it because they don't score as highly Shaw the DOC Simmo have all been really poor recently.Sorry but I disagree entirely. I suggest tying the defence component first its the easy one. and your other lines will come down then pounce .lock in SHAW RANCE LAIRD DOC SIMPSON GIBBO done..fwds aand mids offer a plethora of good choices def doesn't I tend to disagree about Hopper as well he is a gun will play forever and over the next 3 weeks will make 120000 plus could be 400 after byes with good Js what more do you want You are welcome to your opinion Wheels but I strongly disagree…..defence first Hopper this week just do it….

      @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 14:59

      well thats your call

      i can tell you now that over the season, you will end up with more points from a full premo FWD line than a DEF line
      Currently there is 3 DEF in the TOP 50 !!!!!! overall scoreers this season

      So the rookie who creates a good DEF line will be so low on the rankings that by the time they finally get decent in other lines they cant catch up and are left with all the bottomed out MIDS

      as for Hopper, hes had 1 x 100+ game, if he doesnt make 100 this week then that 100 will be out of his price calculations

      200k is alot for a rookie.. caution to the wind eg: MILLS

      theres your answer

        clarea · 25/05/2016 at 15:34

        Its purely opinion Wheels youre probably a good guy I CAN DO THE SAME Cripps last year enough said there..but my main reason for selecting Hopper would be no other good options Wheels Matheison will most likely get injured Williams low JSwhen j j and suckling come back MAYBE TRENGOVE THOUGH GOOD LUCK WHEELS agree to disagree

          @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 15:43

          haha no body is making anything personal!! this was your first line of your comment.

          "can you give me a reason why not def first"

          i just answered your question… no hint of me attacking YOU.

          This is a community. no personal attacks.

          ps. is there any reason why Mathieson will get injured, but not Hopper? i wasnt aware that he was super injury prone… maybe put the link into these comments so i can see why Matheison will "most likely" get injured

            clarea · 25/05/2016 at 16:43

            seen him on the week end Wheels absolutely fearless got his. head pulled off 3 times .The dees really attacked him smaller fragile bodied player but when he gets games into him look out parish is the same Hopper Oliver Petracca are ready made look at petraccas thighs I do ablett like .Just researching your top 3 def in 50 comment will link when it is irrefuteable to get def done first at this stage of the season still good reasoning is whats its all about not like those jerks a while back ruining our banter. Defence has been an on goi ng hassle for many years more betterer to fix it early IMHO Cheers Wheels

              Southern S · 25/05/2016 at 16:49

              Fair points but this isn't other years. Gotta look at what's happening right now on other lines too.

    Southern S · 25/05/2016 at 16:39

    Can see what you're saying here although to lock in a few premos in defense is a given, but yep I'll be bolstering my defense in later rounds, especially with some good backline rookies scoring well this year.

    Started with Shaw and Laird, bought in Bartel and Doch at reasonable prices but those boats have sailed, as of right now locking in cheap defensive players is risky.

    There's some good deals on other lines like Gray, Priddis, Merrett, Buddy, Wingard and other smokies like Tippet, Lewis, Murphy and James Kelly.

    With the predicted top 8 or so defenders being 500k+ you can wait it out and make sure you are getting the right ones around the byes or after.

      The Ranger · 25/05/2016 at 17:00

      I'm with Wheels on making the mids and forwards a focus where I can but ultimately I'm governed by value for money.
      If a player that you want comes along at a reduced price then you've gotta get him while you can no matter what position.
      For example, I could get Gray or Buddy this week but if I do trade I'll probably get Enright or Montagna instead.

        Blueth · 25/05/2016 at 18:15

        exactly. if you're selling high and buying low then it's no hugely important where these players and grouped. I just happened to have ended up with 6 premo's in my DEF line (calling Hurn a premo for shock value) because thats the way it fell…I'm ranked top 1%.
        Shaw, Doch, Simpson, Laird, Bartel, Hurn (cuddles, brown sound)

          Southern S · 25/05/2016 at 18:23

          Agreed really depends when you bought them, right now I wouldn't buy any unless I already had stacked forwards and mids.

            Blueth · 25/05/2016 at 18:33

            except Hurn, he's still cheap 😉

breakevens · 25/05/2016 at 14:08

James Kelly from the bombers anyone?
Played every game averaged 102 and valued at 487k

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 15:07

    great POD
    big ball get big win

    Blueprime · 25/05/2016 at 16:26

    Bought him R3. Happy for now.

    Southern S · 25/05/2016 at 16:32

    Flying under the radar that's for sure.

    Average Joe · 25/05/2016 at 17:48

    Only problem is that he is a mid only, would much rather more proven players like pridda, gray etc

    CaPtKaOs · 25/05/2016 at 18:25

    he is interesting, thats for sure. i actually wonder if another club will offer him a one year contract for next year. he looks like he has another year in him.

Tom · 25/05/2016 at 14:09

Is H.Shaw a must have ? Haven't got him as never really rated him but his scores this season are hard to argue with and he'll rise again after this week. Thanks

    breakevens · 25/05/2016 at 14:13

    Probably missed the boat on him and you should've started with him. Too expensive to get him in atm

    I N Pieman · 25/05/2016 at 14:41

    I'd say it's now or never Tom. If your playing someone who has him you'd be crapping your dacks. If you can get him in then do it. After this week he could be close to 700

    JamiesNinjas13 · 25/05/2016 at 14:56

    Yeah he is, but you can't get a 640k defender in now. What goes up must come down, be patient he will score the odd 70 and will drop 100k atleast. I got sucked into getting Robbie Gray (600k+) last year after R9 and he dropped 100k in the next couple months.

    Southern S · 25/05/2016 at 16:31

    Never rated a guy that has averaged 90-100 for 10 years?

    Averaged 112.6 and doesn't look like slowing down, not sure if I'd pay 640k for him right now.

    Boltons Blues · 25/05/2016 at 19:04

    will be 700k soon, to late

Adam · 25/05/2016 at 14:09

Should I do 1 trade and bring in Priddis to make the midfield Hannebery, Dangerfield, Pendlebury, Ablett, Parker, Shiel ,Priddis and J Smith but it involves losing the dpp link.
2 trades to bring in D Martin in the fwd line and keep dpp link between mids and fwds. Only problem is I have 16 trades left and 105,200 remaining in salary.

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 15:08

    option 2

      Adam · 25/05/2016 at 16:10

      With the trades left that is before the Martin trade which means if I bring in dusty I will have 14 trades left whereas I will have 15 left if I bring in Priddis.

TRIGGER HAPPY · 25/05/2016 at 14:16

Always look forward to reading your posts wheels no bullshite just common sense.
I am getting hopper this week purely for $$ generation as I have mendapoo and Davis and they r doing bugger all.
Worked out can't get the team I want without bringing in hopper to get the $ required up till his bye for final upgrades in defence. .
So trading dbj to hopper swinging AMT back so instead of sitting on the bench in my fwd line have him as my D6 rather than Ruggles and with $ made upgrade benken to the best fwd at the moment the big Z.
next week Davis to Matterson.

So horses for courses. Bringing in hopper works best for my team and bye structure.

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 15:11

    yea i like what your saying because you have JUSTIFIED why you are getting Hopper

    to many Cookie Cutters out there looking at the "most traded" player and not doing their research or thinking about why they are bringing in a 200k rookie

    im personally holding out one more week for Rhys Mathieson as i had him in my pre-season team, and looks like he could be a good, cheap option. Getting him will give me an extra 80k + whatever he earns. Job Sec is dodgy, but we will see wether my gamble to not get Hopper will pay off (i gambled and didnt get Ablett, i feel like that was a good option)

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 25/05/2016 at 15:26

      gotta have a plan and back ya gut.
      ie abs good 4 u, wingard not so much 4 me though hoping he is gonna repay the faith in back end.
      Matho was also in my preseason team.
      Will trade Davis for him next week.

Chbkdj · 25/05/2016 at 14:58

Is bartel still a good pick up in defence or should I look else where ?

    @wheels_1987 · 25/05/2016 at 15:39

    he hasnt missed a game yet so maybe he is a good option. but dont get him for the sake of it

    MzD · 25/05/2016 at 15:39

    I'm a little bit concern that the best Defenders thusfar are 30+ year olds . Don't go for too many.

    bob · 25/05/2016 at 16:38

    He's a bloody good option for points but he comes with a couple of warning labels
    1. Over past couple of years he's been rested for at least one game late in the year
    2. Any headknock will likely see taken out of the game and given a weeks rest

      Southern S · 25/05/2016 at 16:46

      Agreed but on the second point I think any player that cops a head knock sits out a week these days.

Boltons Blues · 25/05/2016 at 15:04

the only way Byrne will be out of the Carlton team, is with injury, so im holding him most the season at D6 for now, until i can trade up Ruggles

Byrne has much better JS then the stRuggler

    Southern S · 25/05/2016 at 16:59

    Byrne has great job security no doubt.

    Who would've thought he'd end up more valuable than DBJ (assuming DBJ is out now and/or scores poorly next game). Glad I got them both that week.

      Boltons Blues · 25/05/2016 at 19:05

      yeap, apart from bringing in bottomed out dusty martin, the 2 Byrne boys were my best trades of the season

MzD · 25/05/2016 at 15:46

I'm really confused about whether to bring in Boyd or Rance. Rance most often lingers around the 80-120 but hes the youngest premium out there. Boyd is ageing but last season he'd managed to get 100+ avg. Doggies are pushing finals and probably can't afford to rest such a cool head in Boyd; he brings reassurance to the defence. Are both a win win situation? I can go for Simpson but already have Docherty.

    Kalamazoo · 25/05/2016 at 15:50


    TRIGGER HAPPY · 25/05/2016 at 15:56

    For me Boyd is excelling due to injuries in the dogs back line as he is getting more if the ball. Early when dogs had defenders he was scoring 60's so personally I'm gonna wait and see what happens when dogs get some of their defenders back and if his role/scoring change.

    Rance folk at SC land In charge of scoring love the guy but like all defenders can have an off night.

    Simmo ultra consistent and seems refreshed under bolts. No problem having both as they can both score well as proven last few weeks.

    Simmo/rance share the same bye so see how they fit in with the other outs in your team for Rd 13.

    So that's it. That's my opinion for what it's worth.

      MzD · 25/05/2016 at 16:05

      It's Simpson. Made up my mind.

    Leeds17 · 25/05/2016 at 18:26

    Rance is reliable to score between 75-90 on a average week and can go huge, agree with Trigger happy that Boyd will ease off once Sucking and JJ are back

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2016 at 08:28

    i really feel Rance is the man… such a beast and is building a huge tank.. runs off his player AND beats them one on one.. huge ceilling

Blake · 25/05/2016 at 16:43

Who should I take out for Hopper?

Option 1 Oliver to Hopper.
Option 2 Davis to Hopper.
Option 3 J.Smith to Hopper.

    Southern S · 25/05/2016 at 16:45

    None of them, they all have a good BE.

      Blake · 25/05/2016 at 16:47

      So don't get Hopper in?

        Southern S · 25/05/2016 at 16:56

        I don't reckon you should, but it's a tough one and could pay off in the end.

        Not many (if any) of the 200k rookies have paid off this year though.

          Blake · 25/05/2016 at 17:04

          My team (without trades this week)

          Shaw, Docherty, AMT, Leo, KK, DBJ (Adams, K.Collins)
          Danger, Pendles, Parker, Zaharakis, Motlop, Libba, Wells, Smith (Oliver, Davis, Joyce)
          Gawn, Z.Smith (Chol)
          Martin, Hall, Kerridge, BenKen, Wingard, Petracca (Cox, Simpkin)

            Randomclcihe · 25/05/2016 at 20:54

            Priddis. Mids are weak. Hold Zaha I reckon. Look to cull lambs.

          @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2016 at 08:29

          agree with this comment!!!

          Dont trade out a low BE performing rookie for a 200K rookie

          just not worth the risk

Porta · 25/05/2016 at 16:47

Why does hopper have to be picked? If you have 20+ OK.

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2016 at 08:29

    he doesnt need to be picked… dont be a sheep, make your own choices

John · 25/05/2016 at 16:50

Zaharakis (Break even of 150+!!) to Neale or Matthew Wright to Dusty?

Also if DBJ is out ill downgrade him but if he isn't I might downgrade menadue to Dougal Howard

    Southern S · 25/05/2016 at 16:55

    Not sure about Dougal. Has player once in round 2 and round 6?

    Not sure about trading Wright either he's scoring ok you couldn't expect him to keep pumping out 100's.

    I'd deal with DBJ if he's not named and another rookie that has fattened up.

      James · 25/05/2016 at 17:04

      What about Zaharkis? And what would be a better option than Howard? I could get rid of menadue to.

        John · 25/05/2016 at 17:04


        Southern S · 25/05/2016 at 18:19

        Maybe DBJ down to Williams

        There's not agood downgrade target for the forwards right now, so either premo or Wingard?

        If you can DPP menadue to the mids then options may open up for Mathieson (bubble next week) or a fallen premo like Pridds.

          John · 25/05/2016 at 18:35

          yeah alright might downgrade DBJ, but what about zaharakis mate?

James · 25/05/2016 at 16:55

Is it worth trading gawn for goldy?

    Southern S · 25/05/2016 at 17:03

    Up until last weekend (after his 49) he was still the top scoring ruck.

    It's a poor trade I reckon.

jimmy · 25/05/2016 at 17:03

what should i do with my team have 42k in the bank

Shaw, Docherty, Laird, Enright, Tipungwuti, Byrne (DBJ, Ruggles)

Danger, Hanners, Ward, Ablett, Shiel, Priddis, Zieball, Lewis (Hewett, Davis, Gresham)

Gawn, NicNat (Lorensch)

Martin, Hall, DeGoey, Kerridge, Benken, Petracca (menadue, J.smith- 102k non playing rookie)

    Randomclcihe · 25/05/2016 at 20:47


callum · 25/05/2016 at 17:08

is it okay to have dusty and lids in the same fwd line

    The Ranger · 25/05/2016 at 17:29


    Southern S · 25/05/2016 at 18:17

    I wish I had Dusty and Lids in my forwardline, I have neither at the moment.

    Randomcliche · 25/05/2016 at 20:46

    I'm getting the set this weekend! Just don't touch any others. Apologies for recommending menapoo preseason…

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2016 at 08:30


Powerage · 25/05/2016 at 17:16

Bloody hell why did I trade Adams instead of Weitering ! How stupid !

    Southern S · 25/05/2016 at 18:17

    Not sure he had a high BE and was injured, doesn't matter too much though live and learn.

Bukkake Tsunami · 25/05/2016 at 17:22

People think Hall a keeper?

    Average Joe · 25/05/2016 at 17:49

    If he gets back to his early season form, and stays healthy

    Leeds17 · 25/05/2016 at 18:17

    I still do, but understand why others dont, whilst his Disposal rate is still high i'm not too worried

Blake · 25/05/2016 at 17:24

My team (without trades this week)

Shaw, Docherty, AMT, Leo, KK, DBJ (Adams, K.Collins)
Danger, Pendles, Parker, Zaharakis, Motlop, Libba, Wells, Smith (Oliver, Davis, Joyce)
Gawn, Z.Smith (Chol)
Martin, Hall, Kerridge, BenKen, Wingard, Petracca (Cox, Simpkin)

Sarah · 25/05/2016 at 17:30

What would you do? 20 trades left ranked 380
Thoughts appreciated! 😀
Shaw laird Bartel rich dbj Byrne- brown brand
Danger Pendles Parker ward Ablett Libba Montagna mills- smith Davis Dunkley
Gawn goldy- goetz
Dahl Martin hall Barlow wells kerridge- petracca menadue

    Steeeve · 25/05/2016 at 18:05

    Byrne-Jones to Bailey Williams, Mills to Priddis?

      Sarah · 25/05/2016 at 18:11

      That's exactly what I'm leaning towards haha just feel it's the cookie cutter move…

        Southern S · 25/05/2016 at 18:15

        Your team is fairly cookie cut but you do have Montag and Ward as PODs and can grab another Midfield POD later when you move Montag forward?

        A couple of defensive POD's later and you should be right.

          Sarah · 25/05/2016 at 18:45

          Yeah it is but it has worked those players are the ones I can rely on. Will have to make some moves soon though, first bye is what's holding me back

    Randomclcihe · 25/05/2016 at 20:43

    Priddis and Gray over the next two weeks. The carlton pair in defence as time money and bye rounds allow. Good luck.

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2016 at 08:32

    Montagna into FWD line
    Kerridge or wells for Priddis
    Mills out
    Rookie of your choice in

John · 25/05/2016 at 17:41

Guys do you think zaharakis to Lachie Neale and menadue or DBJ to a rookie are good moves?

    marcus · 25/05/2016 at 18:18

    no point trading zaharakis waste of a trade

      John · 25/05/2016 at 18:31

      How? His breakeven is 150+ he's not gonna rise in price

        Bukkake Tsunami · 25/05/2016 at 18:37

        If you trade out every player that is going to lose money you will be out of trades real quick. Take the good with the bad.

          Hawks · 25/05/2016 at 18:49

          True, I don't even look at the be's of my premo's.

          John · 25/05/2016 at 19:13

          But in this case im able to pick up a more reliable premo. For one that isn't really consistent.

            Bukkake Tsunami · 25/05/2016 at 19:25

            Well if that's what you wanna do and dont ask? Doesn't make sense? You know what will happen you trade him and he goes big and the person you trade in doesn't! Murphy's Law!

              John · 25/05/2016 at 20:00

              all I'm saying is that Zaharakis hasn't been so consistent over the past few weeks and his BE has sky rocketed. That's why I'm asking whether I should trade in someone like neale while I he's at the price he's at now.

marcus · 25/05/2016 at 18:23

ranked 1000, got 17 trades and want to trade byrne jones a fwd or defender I have 489k.
in defence I got laird shaw Docherty birchall
in forward I got zorko barlow merrett hall
I could downgrade someone like Menadue so I can afford a martin or dahlhaus but as you can see I'm low on trades

    Randomclcihe · 25/05/2016 at 20:37

    Double trade into a premo. They are premo for a reason. I like lids martin Montagna to complete the forward line. You still got wells? If so you only need lids imo but Matin would also be useful swing later.

Tommo09 · 25/05/2016 at 18:54

Williams or Hopper???

    Bukkake Tsunami · 25/05/2016 at 18:55


      @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2016 at 08:33


Kev · 25/05/2016 at 19:07

Will hold this week. With Boyd, Suckling and possibly Adams to turn I don't like Williams as an option and his stats don't make him a must have in my books. Hopper has started well, but I don't have any mid rooks at a high enough price to make it a worthy trade.

Don · 25/05/2016 at 19:12

Who is more important to get in this week? Priddis or hopper/Williams?

        Bukkake Tsunami · 25/05/2016 at 20:12

        Hmmm? Sounded like he was going to play this week? Oh well.

          Hawks · 25/05/2016 at 20:20

          AFL360 saying he should play.

          By the way it's the archillies in the opposite foot to that he had issues with last year.

Silo · 25/05/2016 at 19:34

hey community,
looking to down grade Connor Menadue, any down grade forward options?

    Derek · 25/05/2016 at 22:25

    He’s starting to grow on me, I think I’ll keep him a bit longer

    @wheels_1987 · 26/05/2016 at 08:34

    hold him
    if named we have to hope he will do better
