How’s your weekend of fantasy footy panning out?


MOC · 12/06/2016 at 09:31

Don't have danger, My opponent has him captain… Enough said

    Boo-urns · 12/06/2016 at 20:27

    Have danger with the c as well, will still lose with a mid 2300 score.. my season in a nut shell

      MOC · 12/06/2016 at 21:04

      I'm going to lose to last in my paid league. It's been an absolute shocker

nipplepassers · 12/06/2016 at 09:35

Yep same here πŸ™

    medadsson · 12/06/2016 at 15:30

    Dont feel so bad … I had Danger as Captain but in two weeks I have lost Dalhaus … knee, didn't know Adams was an out …. donut, had Hall, have Howe (not likely to play), had Apeness as cheapie …. broken collar bone, had Christensen …. broken collar bone. For every positive there is a negative or a number it would seem πŸ™‚

Jeremy · 12/06/2016 at 09:37

Accidentally left the 'E' on Lincoln McCarthy, so will have to take his 38 on field instead of Petracca's score in order to be able to loop Dangerfield. Had Dahlhaus as well, so thank god for Danger's score.

Hugh · 12/06/2016 at 09:38

458. This round is about the haves, and the have nots.

jezzahill · 12/06/2016 at 09:39

1162 with 11 players played. Injury stick had to hit at some point – traded Dahlhaus in this week and he cops it. Didn't VC Danger, hoping GAJ or Pendles turn it on instead

psyrick · 12/06/2016 at 09:39

Am I crazy for considering trading in Aaron Hall as my last mid for Petracca so I can take Danger as a Captain loophole. It doesn't really affect my team or bye trades too much, as I was planning to make a fwd upgrade next week, but I was looking to bring in Zorko. I'd need the points to make sure I get a good main league spot and not to fall away from a decent end of year ranking.

    psyrick · 12/06/2016 at 09:41

    I should say last fwd upgrade, not mid sorry.

    Rocksta · 12/06/2016 at 10:40

    Sounds like a good idea to me.

    SD6_ · 12/06/2016 at 11:28

    Could you downgrade to a rookie price player instead?

      psyrick · 12/06/2016 at 12:20

      I could, but the I would lose points over the 3 bye round for playing a non-playing rookie. This way I don't compromise my structure and I trade in a popular player so I am only taking a communal risk.

    Moustachio · 12/06/2016 at 13:54

    Reasonable play if you think Hall will come good. Probably +100 points in your season total right there, you generally want about +200 points from a trade so you're half way there.

      psyrick · 12/06/2016 at 14:08

      Yeah, it's a bit more than 100 because Petracca was on the bench doing sweet nothing. Depends what Pendles gets, but if it's around 120 it will net me around 218 points.

        Moustachio · 12/06/2016 at 18:09

        Oh right I was doing the calc as if you already have Danger but not your C. Massive bonus of course since he's not even in your side. Lock trade!

@emhoy · 12/06/2016 at 09:48

927/8 Gazz, That is with Adams Donut and I went Goldy Vice captain after switching from selwood. Never considered Danger so that was not smart. Happy with my Bken to Selwood trade now need a big one from Gazza.

Starkingdom · 12/06/2016 at 09:51

Some interesting Gaz Jr. stats for those who missed the Danger boat. I'm predicting a 150+ from the little champ.

Played Richmond 9 times
Highest Score = 170
Lowest Score = 120
Ave vs Richmond = 139.4

    Stiv · 12/06/2016 at 10:18

    Richmond don't tag midfielders often.

    Starkingdom · 12/06/2016 at 10:26

    ..and Go Cats

    Starkingdom · 12/06/2016 at 10:57

    can Gaz get near or beat 229 today? how cool would that be..

      I N Pieman · 12/06/2016 at 11:53

      Gaz has a PB of 254. Knocking that over today would be handy

    Moustachio · 12/06/2016 at 18:10

    Didn't quite get there, decent score though.

Hubba · 12/06/2016 at 09:53

Traded in rocky instead of danger to keep coin in the bank will probable have to wait til after the byes to get him at a decent price . .. opponent has vc on danger .. copped a donut because of Adams' late withdrawl with hall +menadue on the pine . Whine whinge whine .

    Hubba · 12/06/2016 at 09:54

    Have left pants on jock…

Trent · 12/06/2016 at 09:54

Sitting nicely on 1791 with another 7 premos and
weitering to play

Starkingdom · 12/06/2016 at 09:55


Mar Got Robbie · 12/06/2016 at 09:58

am sitting 133, have vc loopholed dangers 748, kept hewett on ground with the big C. have to decide whether to put the E on Davis vs Richmond, Hopper vs Sydney or Smith vs Melbourne… Thoughts appreciated community…

James · 12/06/2016 at 10:01

Shaw or pendles C ?

    Mar Got Robbie · 12/06/2016 at 10:05


    Nathan · 12/06/2016 at 10:12


    Tommo · 12/06/2016 at 11:38


Nuggety · 12/06/2016 at 10:02

No Danger ouch. 1130 from 11 played so would otherwise be pretty happy. Who is most likely to go huge today with the C on them?
Ablett, Pendles, Shaw or Gawn?

    MOC · 12/06/2016 at 10:13

    Pendles is reliable, but Ablett and Gawn probably have higher ceiling. Your call

      Millicent · 12/06/2016 at 10:47

      Pendles will be tagged by Vince so beware. C for Ablett

Bolton's Blues · 12/06/2016 at 10:03

1140 with Byrne, Doch, Crippa, Simspon, Kerridge, Rance, Ablett, Shiel, Cox (Hall cover), Petracca (tippa cover), Dusty, Parker, Gawn and Shaw left, hope i can get to the 2400 mark, considering ive got Cox and Petracca on the field, if everyone else shows up and projected ill be around 2500

    Rocksta · 12/06/2016 at 10:44

    I too am looking at mid 2400 to 2500 this week, but I'd say a lot of people will be in that range.

tophawk · 12/06/2016 at 10:05

Just want to double check something with the community. I had a lucky break yesterday as I had Marcus Adams on my forward bench with the E on him. As he was a late withdrawal, could I put the E on Mason Cox on my forward bench and get his score (barring him being a late out) if any of my on field forwards Eg Petracca is a late withdrawal? Or would the lower E score still stand? Which would be Adams? I need to know as I can flick Cox back to the ruck bench and have Loersch back on my forward bench. Cox could then cover Gawn should he be an unlikely late out.

I would prefer to have Cox as an E on my forward bench as he would cover 4 onfield guys yet to play. Greater probability of a late out there to Gawn in the ruck. Nic Nat my other onfield ruck has played. Any thoughts much appreciated.

    Kev · 12/06/2016 at 10:15

    Playing emergencies only, tophawk. So Adams' 0 won't count.

      tophawk · 12/06/2016 at 10:49

      Thanks guys. That's what I thought. Just wanted to be 100%. Cheers

    Nathan · 12/06/2016 at 10:15

    Yeah you wont take adams score as he didnt play

Hoot · 12/06/2016 at 10:17

Best C options from the following?


Unfortunately didn't put the VC on Danger.

    Starkingdom · 12/06/2016 at 10:24

    See above

      Hoot · 12/06/2016 at 10:52


      Onto it.

      Only Gawn had me questioning Gary.

Pauly Walnuts · 12/06/2016 at 10:34

Can't make my mind up,please help – Hopper or Smith on field ?

    Starkingdom · 12/06/2016 at 10:50

    Hopper higher ceiling but tough opponent..
    Smith still developing, doesn't look likely yet

      Mar Got Robbie · 12/06/2016 at 12:07

      having same dilemma…davis, hopper or smith…im going davis just because he palys richmond…u may want to go hopper just because he plays today..if smith is a late out on monday, u wont have cover.

Ben · 12/06/2016 at 10:38

Is anyone having a problem with using the loophole? Mine doesn't seem to be working. When I clicked on Ablett or Hannes there's no C option.

    Kev · 12/06/2016 at 10:53

    Who's your C on at the moment?

      Ben · 12/06/2016 at 11:10

      I put the C on Grimley from Essendon and Vc on Rocky. So I thought I'd try and switch to Ablett.

        CoachDamo · 12/06/2016 at 11:52

        Grimley has already played so you can't change it.

        SD6_ · 12/06/2016 at 11:59

        Essendon played on Friday so Grimley is locked out. Doesnt matter if the player played in the game or not.

        Kev · 12/06/2016 at 13:24

        Rookie mistake there, Ben!

          Ben · 12/06/2016 at 13:39

          Haha! I don't know what I'm doing… oh well I'll remember next time.

Tommo09 · 12/06/2016 at 10:43

1169 with Byrne, Franklin, Parker, Kerridge, Docherty, Martin, Hannebery, Shaw, Pendles, Petracca and Gazza as C

I have heard that I might get 2500
I'm thinking I'll probably get 2200 with my luck

    Pauly Walnuts · 12/06/2016 at 10:46

    Similar ,depends what Gazza scores

    Tommo09 · 12/06/2016 at 11:05

    I always am looking at 2400+ but then something goes wrong and I end up with 2100-2200 so now I just expect low scores

    Tommo09 · 12/06/2016 at 19:56

    Told ya
    2182 with Pendles and Petracca to go

Bomber · 12/06/2016 at 10:46

Changed C on Danger 5 minutes before the game started. Phew!

Shake n bake · 12/06/2016 at 11:00

Need advise who should I bring in for Menadue…Martin or Dids????

    mfawcett77 · 12/06/2016 at 11:18

    Martin all day IMO

      DankMemes · 12/06/2016 at 11:44

      yep martin then look at lids after the bye.

mfawcett77 · 12/06/2016 at 11:11

Going not too bad here I think. 1432 with 10 to play including Martin, Mitchell, Docherty, Parker, Sidebottom, Gawn, Kerridge, Ablett, Shaw and Petracca. Captained Rocky over Dangerfield after using my loophole on hoping Lewis would smash a big score against Essendon:) At least I had Dangerfield in the team for his massive score. Projecting 2435 at the moment. Had Collins on the field over Ruggles and Tucker.

    mfawcett77 · 12/06/2016 at 11:12

    and my opponent is loopholing Dangerfield! Might just pip him at the post:)

    Blueth · 13/06/2016 at 19:16

    did the same πŸ™

I N Pieman · 12/06/2016 at 11:59

Painful isn't it Kev. Praying Gary goes off his tits today

johnno2908 · 12/06/2016 at 12:01

1338/10 with Danger Captain. Docherty, Kerridge, Martin, Ablett, McVeigh, Greene, Shaw, Hopper/Smith, Gawn, Petracca, Parker, Pendles to play.

Who to put on field out of Hopper and Smith?

    Daz · 12/06/2016 at 12:08

    Smith with longer track record but Hopper for ceiling

    breakevens · 12/06/2016 at 12:45

    Smith for me

Beagz · 12/06/2016 at 12:04

Can someone please help me ASAP??!?

If I have two non players on field and two emergencies selected, will they both sub in??


    Daz · 12/06/2016 at 12:07

    yes as long as there the emergency for that position

      Beagz · 12/06/2016 at 12:09

      So with Hall and Grimley on field. Petracca and Dusty as Emergencies.

      I'm safe to put the C on hall and get both my Vice Captains double score + The two Bench players score?

        Daz · 12/06/2016 at 12:18

        If Hall doesn't play, yes. Your VC will count twice as well as your benched emergencies.

          Beagz · 12/06/2016 at 12:28

          Awesome, thanks daz

            Marron · 12/06/2016 at 23:47

            Yeah but only one (lowest) emergency score will count – right? Surely 2 emergencies in the one position both don't come in to play? I think you won't get both but the info about the VC is right.

Daz · 12/06/2016 at 12:06

My opponents projection is 30 less than mine but he had Danger as C. Have Pendles as my C, Rockliff VC but with Viney back in would Ablett be a better C option. Projected 2480?

    Beagz · 12/06/2016 at 12:10

    I'd still back Pendles. Has been huge over the last few rounds.

    Shags · 12/06/2016 at 12:14

    Pendles for consistantsy

      Johnstone · 12/06/2016 at 12:52

      No. He will be tagged by Vince who has done a good job previously. Go Gazza who will not be tagged and will score well.

Daz · 12/06/2016 at 12:13

Yeah had to stop watching. He and Selwood are looking for each other noticeably now.

    I N Pieman · 12/06/2016 at 12:21

    I noticed that to Daz. 370 points between them. Wow

Pauly Walnuts · 12/06/2016 at 12:15

yep, bought Rocky in and put VC on him instead,just hope Gazza turns it on today

    I N Pieman · 12/06/2016 at 12:23

    Same Pauly. Was playing cat & mouse with cash league opponent. We both had danger VC but he changed to Zorko last minute & I went rocky. Both punished

johnno2908 · 12/06/2016 at 12:16

Thankfully not. Had the VC on him and my opponent had him Captain in cash league. Secretly hoped he wouldn't do that great and then I had Pendles Captain to smash out a 150.

    I N Pieman · 12/06/2016 at 12:24

    Nice one johno. Would normally go with Pendles but I need a guy who can go enormous as well. Roling the dice on Gary

james · 12/06/2016 at 12:28

sitting on 1027 from 11 luck hasnt been on my side have had Dahlhaus, Collins and Suckling onfield

still have Docherty, Kerridge, Lee, Ablett (c), Hannebery, Ward, Shiel, Shaw, Petracca, Gawn hopefully can get 2200 and hold my rank

min0008 · 12/06/2016 at 12:31

On 1507/12 with Danger C. Have Simpson, Docherty, Kerridge, Martin, Ablett, Shaw, Parker, Pendlebury, Petracca, Smith to play.
Should get 2400-2500 and who to play on field out of Smith and Davis?

    Derek · 12/06/2016 at 13:39

    You have to be happy with Doch, Simpson and Kerridge first quarter?

Shags · 12/06/2016 at 12:34

Thought about it briefly, I learnt my lesson on late Captain changes a few weeks ago with Shaw scoring 200+ with 45 sec to go, Put it on Goldy who scored 174 which you got to be happy with, but if id stayed on Shaw would have won by 8 and sitting on top of the ladder rather than 5. That's Supercoach for you you win some and you lose some.

    I N Pieman · 12/06/2016 at 12:42

    True shags you do win some & lose some. Not having danger at all would be the real loss

breakevens · 12/06/2016 at 12:43

Sitting on 1639 with Simpson, Martin, Ward, Ablett, Parker, Shaw, Petracca, Gawn still to play
Is 2400 still in reach or am I looking at another 2300 score?

breakevens · 12/06/2016 at 12:47

What will Ben Keays' breakeven look like after his score of 23 last night
He hasn't been what a lot of people expected top score just 76

Tommo09 · 12/06/2016 at 13:00

Someone tell Gaz that Danger got 229 points.
It is a long shot but just remember it is the little master

Seriously, I need him to go HUUUUUGGGEEE

Moustachio · 12/06/2016 at 13:02

People who had the VC or C on Danger went through same amount of tissues for different reason :p

    I N Pieman · 12/06/2016 at 13:10

    Lol and rightly so Moustachio

Daz · 12/06/2016 at 13:15

Gaz it is for C, hope he doesn't disappoint.

Derek · 12/06/2016 at 13:18

Was going to get Dahlhaus next week, I assume he will miss some weeks . Even then need s few weeks for his price to drop.

Lids will come in after his bye.

Leaves a choice between Buddy or Zorko for last forward upgrade?

I didn't like how Lions got smashed yesterday, worried about Zorko scoring in poor team, already have Rocky and Rich.

If I go buddy, I might do it today, why wait.

Any comments, observations or suggestions?

    Keenbutclueless · 12/06/2016 at 13:59

    Hoping Dahlhaus will be back round 15. Yes his price may drop again after that, but he will still be cheap. Proven premo in good side. If you bring Buddy in next week, you really only have one week of Buddy more than Dahlhaus. If your bench is ok, say you lose 40 points for the one week. Reckon you make that up on Dahlhaus versus Buddy on the way home. Plus gives you more cash

    I N Pieman · 12/06/2016 at 14:00

    If you are going Buddy then I agree. Why wait

    Chubby McChubby · 12/06/2016 at 21:14

    Zorko was my number one fwd target. Now I'm not so sure. Brought in Gunston instead of Dahlhaus. Phewww. Had planned to get Dolly after bye

    Blueth · 13/06/2016 at 19:16

    smells like you need a POD shark move…Tom Lynch (ADE)?

Tony · 12/06/2016 at 13:32

Need to trade to win this week. Thinking of bringing in either Ablett or Shiel.
Both work for my bye strategy.

What would you do community ?


Tommo09 · 12/06/2016 at 13:34

Savage for a POD?

Keenbutclueless · 12/06/2016 at 13:44

Yup. Put it onto Priddis. Had the C on Docherty and switched it to Sidebottom. Could be in for a double dose of pain

    I N Pieman · 12/06/2016 at 13:54

    Very painful. Docherty going off tits

Saundo · 12/06/2016 at 13:45

Is everyone going gaz who missed danger or maybe shaw or Treloar ?

    I N Pieman · 12/06/2016 at 13:56

    Shaws recent form at spotless can't be ignored. But I'm going Gary

    Moustachio · 12/06/2016 at 14:52

    Tossing between GAJ and Pendles, but GAJ averages much more against RIC (his second favourite team) than Pendles does against MEL (his second worst).

    Shaw is a viable option too at Spotless.

tom · 12/06/2016 at 13:47

Any news on Dahlhaus?

    I N Pieman · 12/06/2016 at 13:59

    Likely to miss a few weeks. Given its the bye rounds he might be worth hanging onto

    Danners · 12/06/2016 at 14:12

    2-3 weeks according to Gameday

Derek · 12/06/2016 at 13:48


Alex · 12/06/2016 at 14:08

If you didn't have Danger to this point… Honestly hang up the boots cause ya shit.

The racehorse · 12/06/2016 at 14:34

I have Danger Alex but I do not have Selwood yet and I am in the 500's. The point is you can't have everyone yet so don't be a jerk.

    Moustachio · 12/06/2016 at 14:44

    Selwood not critical anyway. Would never VC/C him over Danger.

The racehorse · 12/06/2016 at 15:03

Of course not!

Derek · 12/06/2016 at 15:08

Is Tom Lee the new Zac Dawson?

    A.J · 12/06/2016 at 16:16

    There is no new Zac Dawson, nor will there ever be

    Zac Dawson is one-of-a-kind

Harry · 12/06/2016 at 16:13

You got to feel for anyone without Danger as C or with the ability to loophole from VC. I say that genuinely…. I would be bashing my head against the wall if I couldn't have loopholed him (thank you MacPherson). I traded in Dahl this week so talk about shocking timing to balance it out for me. Without that Dahl hit I'd be looking at a mighty score this week. Only other disappointment is B Smith

    Davonaise · 12/06/2016 at 16:33

    I missed the Danger Captain but am relieved with my Captain so far, Dusty monstering GC 22 disposals and a goal 90 pts half time. Won't be anything like 200+ but hope he ends up 160+

      Harry · 12/06/2016 at 17:22

      Dusty 123 at 3QT. Certainly missed the boat with Danger but can't complain about 150-160 for captain should he get there

Davonaise · 12/06/2016 at 16:24

One of those weeks where your opponant can't be beat >.<
He traded in Danger b4 the game started last night and made him C. Today Docherty and Stevens going epically large
for him, Sitting on 1904 after 15 lol

    Davonaise · 12/06/2016 at 16:28

    My C choice in Dusty is paying off so far 90 at half time
    Makes up for my VC choice on Gibbo rather than Danger

    Hoping Dusty can get 160+ fingers crossed

    Daz · 12/06/2016 at 16:29

    He'll be on soon raving how brilliant to further rub salt into the wound.

      Davonaise · 12/06/2016 at 16:36

      Haha I would do the same too if it was my score so far

Davonaise · 12/06/2016 at 16:30

You will get Bens score A player who gets 0 for not playing won't be counted

Daz · 12/06/2016 at 16:31

Ablett as captain doesn't look like Danger. Hope he has a big second half.

    Davonaise · 12/06/2016 at 16:38

    Not enough guys around him to elevate his scoring via disposals, Richmond winning more contested

Matt · 12/06/2016 at 16:35

Going to be some ridiculous scores this week. After a disappointing last round I'm looking at 2600+. Should be enough to climb the rankings.

    Davonaise · 12/06/2016 at 16:42

    yeah but not much though 2500 is par this week, what a round for sc

      Liam · 12/06/2016 at 17:01

      Par won't be that high but still very high.

Shake n bake · 12/06/2016 at 16:36

Was goin to be short in my fwd line this week so I went menadue to dusty didn't want to do that yet but dusty 91pts half time!!!

Tommo09 · 12/06/2016 at 16:41

Of course Ablett doesn't play well after I don't captain Danger

    Liam · 12/06/2016 at 17:04

    He's rising. Come on God need a big one !!!

vohair · 12/06/2016 at 16:54

(which was once popular in older style wigs) In GENERAL a lace frontal is meant to be bonded in place. Like a lace front wig, a lace frontal piece has a realistic hairline which is meant to mimic hair growing from the scalp. When bonded along the hairline correctly, they achieve just this lace wig Lace frontals cover a larger area than closure as they will have a temple to temple hairline. This larger temple to temple area in combination with the replication of a natural hairline allows for many off the face type of hairstyles that are not possible with a regular closure. Just like its full malaysian wig sized lace front wig counterparts, a frontal will

    I presume you are referring to Dustin Martin's hairstyle?

Jeremy · 12/06/2016 at 16:56

Kolodjashnij finally starts to get the ball, then gets his head knocked off. Sums up his year – Definitely the worst pick I've ever made.

    The Ranger · 12/06/2016 at 16:59

    I picked Gary Rohan once

    Anthony · 12/06/2016 at 17:06

    I agree Jeremy, the SuperCoach gods gave us a chance to trade him out when he missed round 1. At least it actually forces me to trade him out now.

    Bolton's Blues · 12/06/2016 at 17:24

    I picked the Prince last year and Watts the year before, dont be to down on yourself haha

Nicholas · 12/06/2016 at 17:09

Franklin over Tippet was one of my worst picks this year lol

    Davonaise · 12/06/2016 at 18:39

    Spoke too soon mate dodged a bullet

johnno2908 · 12/06/2016 at 17:16

Hopper on 1 at quarter time…

The Ranger · 12/06/2016 at 17:20

One of my opponents not only had the C on Danger but also has Selwood, Stevens, Docherty and The Bont.
Never liked him.

Bolton's Blues · 12/06/2016 at 17:25

Well looks like the 74k coaches made on Hopper is just about capped out, 1 with 10mins left in the 2nd

A.J · 12/06/2016 at 17:50

Tippett injured, it's likely he's injured his medial ligament in his knee.

    Tommo · 12/06/2016 at 18:00

    How long he out for you reckon?

      A.J · 12/06/2016 at 18:12

      Hopefully a long time

        Scarecrow · 12/06/2016 at 19:57

        What a pathetic comment from a gutless wonder who hides behind a mask. Normal SCers don't want injuries. I don't have Tippett but you stink.

    Harry · 12/06/2016 at 18:06

    Goddam both Dahl and Tippett in my team injured this week. Such a shame…. I would have a massive score without that!

      Neverweaken · 12/06/2016 at 19:57

      Switch to Hampson. Joking. Sort of….

Neverweaken · 12/06/2016 at 17:59

Anyone with Dusty as captain!

    Davonaise · 12/06/2016 at 18:01

    yes thank goodness after missing Dangers 229
    Martin 167 b4 scaling not too bad at all

    Bolton's Blues · 12/06/2016 at 18:01

    nah had Danger, but ill take his 168 aswell πŸ˜€

      tophawk · 12/06/2016 at 18:13

      Same here…..very very nice. Now Heath Shaw is cleaning up as well. I got him too. U GOT him? ;-D

        Bolton's Blues · 12/06/2016 at 18:59

        yeap, also had Doc aswell today πŸ˜€

          tophawk · 12/06/2016 at 19:07

          If you don't smash 2600 I'll be very surprised. I don't have the Doc, got Simpson who ended up with a serviceable 109.

          I am looking at around 2650 at this stage.

            Bolton's Blues · 12/06/2016 at 19:33

            i had Byrne, Dahl and Parker who all shit the bed this week
            parker has shit the bed every week since i bought him for 600k

    lachlanmcleanportfolio · 12/06/2016 at 21:06

    thats not even a good thing. Danger should be your captain/ VC every week almost..

Sarah · 12/06/2016 at 18:03

Franklin is a spud out of my team this week to Zorko nice and cheap!

    A.J · 12/06/2016 at 18:12

    You have fun with that

    Davonaise · 12/06/2016 at 18:14

    Another one from you Sarah, your on fire
    Nic Nat yesterday Franklin today. They have been good point scorers this year let alone for your team.
    Stop crying and chase points then

    Millicent · 12/06/2016 at 19:54

    Sarah, never select a key position forward. Mid/fwds are the go and you should know this beds use I am an admirer of your sensible comments. Cheers.

A.J · 12/06/2016 at 18:04

Hopefully Gaz is able to keep these sort of scores coming, just a shame that the rest of the gold coast team are duds

Derek · 12/06/2016 at 18:08

Yeah. Not a good week to get him in , lol

    Derek · 12/06/2016 at 18:14

    Not looking like he will beat Dalhous

Kev · 12/06/2016 at 18:16

Gonna be some crazy scores this round. Hope someone breaks the mythical 3000 barrier!

    Davonaise · 12/06/2016 at 18:24

    think a few will be close idpf not there

      Davonaise · 12/06/2016 at 18:24

      If not*

    Bolton's Blues · 12/06/2016 at 19:00

    Highly doubt it, probably looking at a high score around 2700, par score will be about 2300

      Billioux · 12/06/2016 at 21:40


uDonkey · 12/06/2016 at 18:38

Demmit!! SCaddict is killing me with his Danger as C Selwood with 141 and Martin with 167. Martin is hurt me the most as I was looking to bring him in after his bye. What will his price be after next? As i was looking to double upgrade after Round 13.

Jel · 12/06/2016 at 19:01

Got my best score out of Hall for months, used him as my C loophole on Danger!!

Vinny · 12/06/2016 at 19:22

Franklin, Parker, Hannerbery all let me down late, which otherwise would have been a very good score. None of them tonnes up, but hoping they can get scaled a bit.
Sitting on 2400 with Petracca to play, can he get a ton?
Also have the option of playing Josh smith? What do you think?

breakevens · 12/06/2016 at 19:32

Luke Parker you are killing me
Was 2042 with 5 to play and looking at 2500
Shaw 115 and Ward 105
Luke Parker 59, why
Hopefully Gawn and Petracca ton up

    tophawk · 12/06/2016 at 19:59

    Parker carrying a knee injury. I have him too. Might have to flick him this week.

      Beagz · 13/06/2016 at 12:25

      Hold and see how he goes after a week off from the bye

Bolton's Blues · 12/06/2016 at 19:35

2271 with Cox, Gawn and Petracca to go, hopefully i can get to the 2500 mark, but 2400 is looking more the likely, cant be disappointed with that

Dahl, Byrne, Parker all below par scores costing me a bigger score, Cripps and Shiel also down on season averages

    tophawk · 12/06/2016 at 20:04

    Parker injured. Knee problem. Might miss next week. Probably going to give him replace him with Tom Rockliff next week.

    Rocky pretty good value now. I am more confident his fitness is OK. If he was on a winning (more competitive) team yesterday, that 104 would have been 144. His output in the last 2 weeks has been excellent.


      azza · 12/06/2016 at 20:56

      where did you hear about the parker injury?

The benchmark · 12/06/2016 at 19:35

2174 with 3 to go
Sounds like par this round. Missed danger but Martin dug deep for me. Sydney players choked for me today πŸ™ played a premo in the bench this week too for my structure to work come bye rounds and to lock in a cheap rockliff

Cameron · 12/06/2016 at 19:46

2539 with petracca and Gawn to go, pretty stoked so far!

    tophawk · 12/06/2016 at 19:56

    Massive score mate! That is enormous. I got those two guys still to play as well and I am sitting at 2456.

      Cameron · 12/06/2016 at 20:09

      Thanks mate, very good score yourself!

Neverweaken · 12/06/2016 at 19:48

2194 with Treloar, Smith, Petracca and Gawn to go. Hopefully 2600 but very up and down scores. Suckling and Tippett let me down. And they are my PODs as well. Apparently Tippett injured cos he was 50 in the second quarter.

Moosehead · 12/06/2016 at 19:50

If you are THAT Cameron, you would be talking crap, again!

    Cameron · 12/06/2016 at 19:56

    Definitely a different one, I reckon there will be scores much bigger than mine so my score isn't that big

      tophawk · 12/06/2016 at 20:15

      I wouldnt be too sure about that. I play in a lot of very tough leagues and your score is the best I have seen to date.

      tophawk · 12/06/2016 at 20:16

      What is the name of your team mate?

        Cameron · 12/06/2016 at 20:28

        Traded in Rockliff this week for J.Smith

tophawk · 12/06/2016 at 19:54

2456 with Petracca and Gawn to play.

Maybe, just maybe I am going to get a score which will eat 100 to 150 points into that 1000 point lead "Burst" has got on me at the moment. All made possible by Danger's heroics. I hope some of the leaders did not have Danger as VC OR C. That would be very handy.


    Better Luck Nxt Yr · 12/06/2016 at 20:06

    Nice one Top Hawk.

    I've got 2409 with Pendles and Gawn to play. I'm about 800 behind him and looking to do same.

    It says he has Hall, Adams and AMT on ground, but he may be foxin' everyone out.

    He did have Hannerbury, Parker, Shiel, JJK, Priddis, Hopper & DBJ so hopefully that eats into his points a little.

      tophawk · 12/06/2016 at 20:28

      Bloody oath!!

      I hope his bubble will "BURST" this week and you and I can take a juicy chomp out of his lead. ;-)))


        Billioux · 12/06/2016 at 21:45

        Burst is burst, good scores lads, i within 400 however syd boys kill me. 2400 me out .top 200 to top 1000 . me thinks.

johnno2908 · 12/06/2016 at 19:59

2248 with Gawn, Petracca and Pendles to come. Assuming this is par. Parker, McVeigh and Hopper shithouse.

    Dean · 12/06/2016 at 20:14

    I think your predicted score of 2574 will be between 50 to 100 over par mate

David · 12/06/2016 at 20:06

Dahl, KK, Collins and Lee have killed me this week, still sitting on 2390 with Gawn and Petracca to play, going to be some insanely high scores this round.

Derek · 12/06/2016 at 20:06

Some big scores this week. I'm on 2200 with only Pendlebury and JSmith to go, so 2400 looks where I'll be. However I'll probably only win 2/10 leagues.

    Dean · 12/06/2016 at 20:12

    Totally agree im on 2005 but have danger as captain and currently Wyatt is my Captain so Dangers 229 have not been factored in, the other players I have are Pendles, Smith & Petracca so I am predicted to score 2472 once you deduct Wyatt's 40 as my captain.

    Someone will crack the 3000 this week

      tophawk · 12/06/2016 at 20:22

      I don't think the 3000 will be cracked this week. I reckon a score in the vicinity of 2900 will get you the $500 bucks this week.

        The Ranger · 12/06/2016 at 20:31

        Bonkers week.
        I'm on 2215 with Smith, Petracca and Gawn still to come and normally I'd be pretty happy with that but because I didn't have the C on Danger I still somehow feel like I'm missing out!

      lachlanmcleanportfolio · 12/06/2016 at 21:05


    Derek · 12/06/2016 at 22:47

    I can still put C on Pendles. Have VC on Gaz. Any point?

      Dean · 12/06/2016 at 23:11

      Derek if this was any other week I would say hell NO take Gazza's 127, however considering most have Danger as there C then I would roll the dice and go Pendles he is predicted to score 132 but he might go massive and your in that position to take the gamble.

      Like I said though usually I would NEVER pass up 127 but due to missing out on Danger I would roll the dice. I had my C on Pendles and VC on Danger, so Wyatt ended up with the C for obvious reasons but Pendles was my second pick.

gator59 · 12/06/2016 at 20:13

2468 with only the big bearded one to play ,, stuff collins,, buddy,, lycett and parker

Tommy · 12/06/2016 at 20:16

Im sitting just under 2000 with Pendles, Sidebum, Smith and Tracca left. Looking at a score of under 2400. Not happy!

    Dean · 12/06/2016 at 23:13

    I'll be scoring only around 2450 to 2500 with danger as C

Vinny · 12/06/2016 at 20:19

what's the par score this week?

    Leeds17 · 12/06/2016 at 20:34


    Danners · 12/06/2016 at 21:23

    Seems like it is going to be high, 2400+

    Beagz · 13/06/2016 at 12:27


    tim · 13/06/2016 at 13:14

    Yeah lm already 2460 with gawn to come

Leeds17 · 12/06/2016 at 20:32

Not a great start to that "Shark Move", long season who knows…

    The Ranger · 12/06/2016 at 20:33

    Josh Jenkins anyone?

Moustachio · 12/06/2016 at 20:45

Getting his points stolen by JPK, what I've been saying ever since JPK returned to good form

    Derek · 12/06/2016 at 22:44

    I'm not saying anything about JPK

LtDraught · 12/06/2016 at 20:47

2294 with Pendles, Gawn, Petracca and Smith to go! Not stoked with Parker or McVeigh but i can hardly complain, this has been a great week of supercoach

    Dean · 12/06/2016 at 23:19

    so your predicted score is 2688 you are doind better then 95% of all others mate, id be absolutely chuffed as hell with 2600 let alone close to 2700 which u could quite easily achieve.

Moustachio · 12/06/2016 at 20:49

2200 with Dependles, Howe, Gawn and Tracca to go. Captain was not danger!! Dodged some serious carnage this round to make up for that bad luck I guess.

Nicholas · 12/06/2016 at 20:54

2465 with Gawn left Franklin, Parker, Collins, Brodie ruined my almost perfect week.

winters · 12/06/2016 at 20:55

i'm 2092 with only Gawn and Petracca to play think i will will get way under par but ill take it seeing i've had Dahlhaus, Collins and Lee all onfield

    Dean · 12/06/2016 at 23:23

    yeah u will fall at least minimum 114 points short of par as some are saying 2400 will make par however i think it will be closer to 2500 and if thats the case then your 214 behind par. Its just one of those weeks.

Cozza · 12/06/2016 at 20:58

On 2339 with Smith, Petracca and Gawn to come. Fingers crossed for topping the 2600

Dex · 12/06/2016 at 21:00

2060 with howe gawn pendles jones and sidebum πŸ™‚ this week pls

    lachlanmcleanportfolio · 12/06/2016 at 21:04

    not that great

      Dex · 12/06/2016 at 22:01

      Pendles is the captain brah

    Thomas · 12/06/2016 at 21:13

    It's alright
    I'm thinking 2500
    I would love to get close to that

Sarah · 12/06/2016 at 21:01

Franklin and Parker can say goodbye to my team this week. Wish I could trade out Zorko also but he can stay for one more week

    lachlanmcleanportfolio · 12/06/2016 at 21:04

    um what? Zorko is good

    Pman35 · 12/06/2016 at 21:06

    Until this week Zorke had scored five 100+ scores in a row, defies logic that you would want to trade him?

    Milicent · 12/06/2016 at 21:15

    I thought you knew what you were talking about but you are far too emotional and I will not take as much notice of you in the future. Keep both players and don't be a sook.

      Sarah · 12/06/2016 at 22:01

      Get top 500 then talk to me scrub

        Dan · 12/06/2016 at 22:11

        I'm inside the top 50 and have Parker and Zorko I won't be trading them out

          Better Luck Nxt Yr · 13/06/2016 at 10:50

          No Dan, Daniel, Danielle, Danika or any version of Dan in top 50.

          I can see a Brendan but he doesn't have Zorko.


        Tim · 12/06/2016 at 23:49

        Sarah with only 6 trades left and u want to make these trades, even if you're currently ranked #1 – It would be a miracle for you to finish in the top few hundred unless the SC Gods pull off a miracle just for you, but that isn't going to happen because 80% of the teams are the same players.

        Don't mean to sound like a smart arse but in all honesty, sorry to burst your bubble but you're screwed regardless what you're ranked right now.

        I would be holding on to those trades as though they were GOLD bullion.

    Danners · 12/06/2016 at 21:25

    Have you used a trade this season yet? If not go for it

      Sarah · 12/06/2016 at 22:00

      I have 6 trades but honestly idc they are annoying the hell out of me

    Billioux · 12/06/2016 at 21:50

    cat die Sarah, u gone from good reading to ridiculous in 1 foul swoop/week. Oh dear. Gin and a hot bath i reckon. hang tough i going from 150th odd out the back gate wit 2400. Trades in place ,bye structure cool. be like Fonzie.

    Dean · 12/06/2016 at 23:41

    Why in gods name would u say wish u could trade out Zorko this week are u nuts, this is his first week under 100 and 87 is not bad at all, I wanted to trade out Motlop to bring Zorko in coz I knew Motlop was going to drop $75,000 but i forgot due to the Doggies massive win.

    Actually even Franklin he has been very consistent with scores of: 91,102,109,101,83,106,116,101,102,102,69,57 and a average of 95 if nothing to be upset about. If you carry on like this then you'll be trading every bloody week.


      Dean · 12/06/2016 at 23:56

      oh shit i just read u only have 6 trades left, so u have been trading every week practically and we are 1 game over mid way through the season. Your up poop creek without a paddle me thinks Sarah.

      Hope im wrong though, I usually like reading your posts.

        Community Member · 13/06/2016 at 00:00

        Jeez boys can you really not see when someone is just posting bollox?
        Just ignore this poster.

        Dean · 13/06/2016 at 00:01

        12 rounds gone with 2 trades permitted per week = 24 trades used, meaning only 6 trades left. So u have literally used TWO bloody trades per round that's just ABSURD.

        I'm laughing my arse off here, my first comment where I wrote, ". If you carry on like this then you'll be trading every bloody week" I didn't think u were literally until now. what a pi$$er

        Save those 6 trades what ever u do.

          Sarah · 13/06/2016 at 00:24

          Crouching One always says to go bang bang so sorry guys I will have to say goodbye to these underperformers

            Box · 13/06/2016 at 05:31

            Crouching also looses more than he wins………………………6 trades left……you are screwed!

            Dean · 13/06/2016 at 18:26

            under performers in Franklin, Parker & Zorko and you're still considering to trade them even though they all have a breakeven of 95, 112 & 116 your kidding.

            I bet you have 12+ trades like 80% of the other players, shit if i traded 2 players each week then I would be ranked top 100 for sure by now but it wouldn't last long.

            Hope u don't have Nic Nat Sarah coz you'll need to burn a trade there also as he is out for 6 to 8 weeks.

dan · 12/06/2016 at 21:01

2406 treloar pendes gawn petracca to play lucky aaron hall was out managed to loophole to danger at last minute this morning

    Dean · 12/06/2016 at 23:28

    Thats massive mate well done, your on 2852 projection so if Gawn, Trelore & pendles go huge you could hit 3000 its possible and your in a decent shot at scoring the highest this week.

    Whats the name of your team I will be cheering for you mate. Good luck

    pete · 13/06/2016 at 18:29

    dan I think you are full of Shit. Whats your teams name?

tophawk · 12/06/2016 at 21:23

Hi Jock, this message is for you.

I am getting pretty tired of imposters freely posting messages using the same nicknames on the behalf of genuine players.

I reckon you need to tighten things up a bit mate.

Just like number plates for road users, there is only one of it's kind in existence.

Perhaps you could update your registration requirements to ensure no 2 nicknames will be possible. It will ensure the community will recognise BS artists posting crap on the behalf of other players.

Cheers mate

    Liam · 12/06/2016 at 21:35

    Great idea Hawk.

    Billioux · 12/06/2016 at 21:55

    Agreed tophawk. some register smear required. No BB, just enough to keep pseudo camerons as such out. I dig reading real player insights.

    Community Member · 12/06/2016 at 22:29

    It's a tricky one isn't it TH?
    I don't like the idea of the site having to be regulated but it's certainly got weirder this year.
    Pretty sure that the Sarah above isn't the Crows fan that has been posting here for years.
    Just ignore the dickheads and eventually they go away, there's been many of them over the years!
    What's left is the Community.

    Wombat2 · 12/06/2016 at 23:31

    This is another reason why SC is on the wane. It is not the great game it was years ago when 450K+ SCers played.

    Leeds17 · 13/06/2016 at 07:08

    Not keen to register a intensedebate account?

    Jock Reynolds · 13/06/2016 at 08:07

    Awww yea mate I reckon that's a crackin idea!

Alphie · 12/06/2016 at 21:24

2250 with Pendlebury, J smith, and petracca. Is this par, below average or above average for this round?

    Dean · 13/06/2016 at 18:34

    I recon it will be slightly above par, but only slightly

Sarah · 12/06/2016 at 21:46

Adams you're a disgrace! If you're not going to play at least have the guts to tell us on the Thursday. Don't know why I ever bothered with you in the first place. Thanks for the donut.
Tippett WTF? A real man would have strapped up his knee and kept playing. So annoying πŸ™

    tophawk · 12/06/2016 at 21:58

    Wow! You are passionate. Cudos!

    Sarah · 12/06/2016 at 22:05

    Also Franklin and Parker are the biggest spuds I want all these players out of my team but can only trade 3 times, they are absolutely disgraceful thinking Tippet, Franklin, Parker out. Then the next week Hanners, Zorko and Nic Nat out. Should have never started with these spuds in the first place. After this I will be out of trades but should be free from spuds

      tophawk · 12/06/2016 at 22:21

      Reverse the name Sarah……and what do you get?


        Nigel · 12/06/2016 at 22:26

        nice one tophawk but if anything needs reversing its her trades!

          tophawk · 12/06/2016 at 22:32

          You are not wrong there. A new nickname is also required. There appear to be a few "Sarahs" on here lately.

            Shake n bake · 12/06/2016 at 22:41

            It's not the Sarah we know the only player she has out of all the player this Sarah mentions is Parker.

      Dean · 13/06/2016 at 00:04

      Sarah are u serious or are u just taking the pi$$ out of us. Your usually a good read although this is gr8 reading but its hilarious.

        Leeds17 · 13/06/2016 at 13:45

        Anyone can post under the name Sarah

      tim · 13/06/2016 at 13:24

      I'm ranked 5000 but with 17 trades and cash in the bank. Reckon l pass you by years end

    Nigel · 12/06/2016 at 22:12

    It's okay you've had a tough week but you'll bounce back from this. Honestly people on here only post their scores when they're good. You don't hear anyway saying "I'm on 1850 with Pendles to go, how am I doing community". It makes the rest of us think we have a really bad score when it's not the case. You've had a great season so far, you're beating Higgo & Jock to name a few. Hold your trades for now, at least till tomorrow.
    BTW I think it's was Tippetts hamstring, not his knee πŸ˜‰

Hazey · 12/06/2016 at 21:47

With Tippet going down is Sinclair now a viable option to downgrade Martin or a waste of a trade? Could make some cash and shift to F7 after the byes….

    Leeds17 · 13/06/2016 at 07:12

    If Tippet is out for the season then its an okay move assuming you're stgruggling for cash generation

      Hazey · 13/06/2016 at 08:48

      Was more thinking because Martin has been so shite, I'll probably look to upgrade him at some stage, so perhaps the shark move is to do it now before Sinclair becomes the number 1 at Swans and hopefully scores around 90's. Then when a Fwd rookie fattens, swing Sinclair down and bring in a performing ruck premo

One Touch Wonder · 12/06/2016 at 22:30

Ok community the time has come for me to bring you SHARKMOVE 3.0! You all remember the success I've had with my first 2 shark moves so far but now this is the BEST ONE YET. It's a no brainer! SHARKMOVE 3.0 is……

    One Touch Wonder · 12/06/2016 at 22:32

    I will be revealing the SHARK MOVE during the week. Are you going to take the advice this time? Or are you going to be the shoal?

      One Touch Wonder · 12/06/2016 at 22:36

      Ok I can't wait that long….
      SHARKMOVE 3.0 is Menadue to Nankervis (via DPP)

      I'm sure everyone has got an absolute useless player at R3 who will never play in a million years, right? It was handy at the start of the year for a captain choice, but what good are they now when you always have another player out injured?
      Let's face it, Menadue is leaving a stench on the rest of our team. And with Tippett out now long term, Nankervis is about to take over as the main ruckman at Sydney. He is the Max Gawn of last year. But only the SHARKS will realise this before it's too late!

        Moustachio · 13/06/2016 at 08:05

        The real SHARKMOVE – not starting Menaspew in your team in the first place

      One Touch Wonder · 12/06/2016 at 22:38

      I used to like this site. Too many copy cats. I think I'll find so where else now

      tophawk · 12/06/2016 at 22:40

      Hi Midas,

      You keep spruiking your sharkmove 3.0!

      Sharkmove 2.0 is currently on the bottom of the Indian Ocean with a blown propane tank up it's arse.

      I have a shark move of my own. It will not be advertised.

      Nitey nite!


        One Touch Wonder · 12/06/2016 at 22:53

        That was't me.

Dan · 12/06/2016 at 22:36

2397 with Pendles and Gawn to come. Loopholed Danger but Collins on field cost me a bit.

smote · 12/06/2016 at 22:52

I'm sensing there are many coaches feeling glum this week. Chin up tigers! Don't get down on yourselves. I tried that once and nearly put my back out.

Patric · 12/06/2016 at 23:30

2100 with four to play

gawn, smith, cox and petracca

who should i bring in next week? looking to upgrade cox and smith

    Dean · 13/06/2016 at 18:39

    Trngrove or Jenson although I prefer Trengrove after todays game with 14 possessions and a goal scored 81 & 60 last week not bad.

CaPtKaOs · 13/06/2016 at 00:22

Feels like a strange scoring year for me. Defenders have consistently been tonning up. 5 of 6 this week. Mids are killing it one week, then churning out [email protected] the next. And start of season "premo" forwards that give me heartburn every week. I'm looking at you wingard and barlow. I woild have taken the axe to both of you if I didn't have bigger problems. Oh for the days when I could just stick the "c" on gaz every week………

Rick Grimes · 13/06/2016 at 07:23

2433 with Petracca and Smith to play. Still not enough to make me feel good about trading Dollshouse in this week. Grrrr

    I N Pieman · 13/06/2016 at 08:38

    Think he's only going to miss a few weeks Rick. During the bye rounds & best 18 scores each week helps

      Rick Grimes · 13/06/2016 at 10:48

      Yea I'll have to hold. Hope Hall comes back post byes. Had 30 odd touches on the weekend apparently.

        The Ranger · 13/06/2016 at 11:07

        I'm gonna try and hold both of them too Rick.
        I've planned what I want to do thru the byes and don't want to change it.
        Gonna have to swing Hall onto the mid bench and put Petracca onfield in the fwd line.
        Hope they can both make it back!

        Tommo09 · 13/06/2016 at 11:20

        Yeah 30 and a goal plus 8 tackles

tuxCS · 13/06/2016 at 07:55

2145 with 4 to play, Pendelbury, gawn, Cox and petracca.

    Dean · 13/06/2016 at 18:41

    Thats about average im guessing, there will be some huge scores im guessing top score will be 2900+

Tommo09 · 13/06/2016 at 08:13

I knew I wood have a shocker
2182 with Pendles and Petracca
Was heading towards 2500 but then some crap scores

    Tommo09 · 13/06/2016 at 08:26

    Sorry *would

I N Pieman · 13/06/2016 at 08:34

Looking through some leagues I'd say 2400 is par 2500 good score & 2600+ very good. Seems to be quite a mixed bag out there

BCHawks · 13/06/2016 at 08:40

Currently sitting on 2509 with Smith to play. I have had 3 scores under 60. I'll hopefully move up in the ranks a bit.

Sonnyrich23 · 13/06/2016 at 08:41

Hi everyone, good week of SC! I'm currently on 2508 with Pendles and Petracca to come. Collins the only very poor score so far. Do you think this puts me up there for the weekly rankings?

Sonnyrich23 · 13/06/2016 at 10:15

Currently 7,000 odd. Like many had a rough start to the season but have made inroads the past few weeks

    tophawk · 13/06/2016 at 10:38

    I am currently sitting in 2758th pozzie. I am on 2456 with Gawn and Petracca to play. I will hopefully end up with around 2650 which I will be happy with. I am hoping that score will lift me very close to the top 1000.

    I reckon you will end up with 2720 ish which would rocket you towards the top 2000 IMO.


      Sonnyrich23 · 13/06/2016 at 11:02

      Thanks mate, yeah I reckon you should move into top 1,000 if Gawn and Petracca have a good one!

tom · 13/06/2016 at 10:23

Was on track for a 2400 plus score but the likes of Dahlhaus, Parker, Goldstein let me down.

Has Parker's role changed in the team since the start of the season? He started the season on fire but has slowed quite significantly.

    johnno2908 · 13/06/2016 at 12:56

    Played forward pocket the whole second half when I was watching. Heard he may be carrying some kind of injury so hopefully the round 14 week off helps.

    Leeds17 · 13/06/2016 at 13:48

    was going about 10% over his previous DE% which helped bump up his early scores now back to his normal 60% has hurt and now looks to be carrying an injury as well

CapTkAoS · 13/06/2016 at 10:28

Yep. That score should give you a decent lift. Even though there will be plenty of good scores. Another way to climb the rankings is to plan carefully for the byes. It amazes me every year how many dont bother. I'm only a leagues player, but I often jump 4-5 ladder places through the byes. Of course, the people in the top ranks DO pre-plan and thats why they are near the top.

    Leeds17 · 13/06/2016 at 13:55

    yeah can definitely go 10K to 5K over these weeks if planned decently wont be much movement in the top 1K though i wouldn't have thought, not my problem though no where near that.

Pinidu · 13/06/2016 at 10:38

On 2102 with Pendles, Gawn and Petracca to play as well as Dangers 229 to be added. Hoping to pass 2600.
What would be par this week? 2350-2400?

uDonkey · 13/06/2016 at 11:11

Sitting on 2322 with 1 to play, opponent is on 2193 still have Smith Gawn and Petracca to play today. Should I play Cox and hope he goes big or play Petracca and hope opponents Smith and Gawn stinks it up.

Need the win to stay in touch or be in the top8 with the league I'm in. My season is done not chasing top rank anymore, playing for leagues now.

Really had a bad start this year, players going down every week the likes of Fyfe, Rocky, Crouch, Laird, Gray, Wingard, SMartin, Higgins, Adams, Hall and Barlow (wasn't really injured, Ross was just being Ross).

This week another injury added to the list with Dalhaus going down in the first quarter summed up my season, on top of that Nic-Nat and Goldstein are not looking good either.

    Liam · 13/06/2016 at 11:24

    Play petracca.

hedski · 13/06/2016 at 11:14

2292 with Maxy and Petracca to go.
Hopefully push 2500.
Collins over Ruggles, Tippet and Suckling have hurt a bit.

    Dillon Panthers · 13/06/2016 at 12:07

    We must have close sides hedski! I've got 2292 with pendles and the trac to go!!

    Confuzzled · 13/06/2016 at 13:39

    I must be up against you thus week or someone has the identical situation lol the one week I don't vc/c danger he costs me the win =( unless of course pendles towels up gawn by around 75

      hedski · 13/06/2016 at 15:15

      Is your team "the king of harts"?

        Confuzzled · 13/06/2016 at 15:42

        Sure is

          hedski · 13/06/2016 at 15:47

          Yep. Hypochondria JR league.
          Pendles starting well…..

            Confuzzled · 13/06/2016 at 16:31

            Yeah was looking ok but gawn just went beast mode lpl traded in lycett last week to cover Goldy and thought I was smart using it as a loop for Stef Martin =( not my yr

              hedski · 13/06/2016 at 16:38

              Just got home from work watched last 10 mins of qtr.
              Petracca will be a beast.

                Confuzzled · 13/06/2016 at 17:56

                Yeah he will have to be considered next yr i reckon.. Vince petracca viney Jones.. solid mids

Nathan · 13/06/2016 at 11:45

2397 with gawn and petracca to play
So 2500+ will be great and should push up the rankings
Hoping to move up to the top 1000

    Dean · 13/06/2016 at 18:47

    2600 plus, well done.

Luviboy1 · 13/06/2016 at 12:00

Sitting on 2080 with Pendles, Gawn, Tracca and Smith to come. Hoping these boys post some good scores allowing me to touch 2500. Still spewing I didnt C Danger πŸ™

Herb · 13/06/2016 at 12:28

New rule.
No more telling us your current score, and projected score. It's as boring as batsh1t and quite frankly I don't care.

    Starkingdom · 13/06/2016 at 12:52

    thank you..

    Derek · 13/06/2016 at 13:06

    But I've tried telling my wife and my kids, but they just don't seem to care.

    And this is the Standing Room

      Starkingdom · 13/06/2016 at 13:08

      still boring as bat s hite

    Nigel · 13/06/2016 at 14:33

    Herbs struggling to make 2000. Don't worry mate as a community we're all here for you. Maybe use 9 trades in the next 3 weeks though for starters hehe

Derek · 13/06/2016 at 12:31

I guess it is time to start working through our bye round strategies.

I have only 16 onfield for next week, the plan was to trade out JSmith & Davis >> to Trengove and Selwood. I have $91k so I'm hoping Selwood doesn't go up to much.

I will only have 18 first week of byes. Looking to bring in Lids and Rance the next week to be at full premium.

Anyone else going into first week that thin?

    hedski · 13/06/2016 at 12:41

    I'll have to wait on Tippet see how bad he is but that could throw my trade plans into chaos.
    Second bye week will be the struggle for me.

    Shake n bake · 13/06/2016 at 13:28

    I have 19 don't think Grimley will get a gig so that leaves me 18.
    I'm thinking Smith to Ward so far as my only trade back up to 19
    Just hope they all play.

    Steeeve · 13/06/2016 at 14:06

    I should have 19 on field, so still pretty thin. I think everyone is bringing in Rance and Lids afterwards haha has been my plan since day dot.

    Dean · 13/06/2016 at 18:51

    If you have Nic Nat that will throw a spanner in the works

      Derek · 13/06/2016 at 19:15

      I do and it will

    The Ranger · 13/06/2016 at 19:33

    I haven't looked at in detail yet but having Dahlhaus, Nic Nat and Hall on the pine wasn't part of my byre planning.
    The aim was Pendles and Rance then Hanners, might have to revisit that plan now.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 14/06/2016 at 11:59

    I am Rd 15 heavy but nic Nat injured throws in a spanner.
    If tippa and Adams play will have 20 this week
    goldy may be rested
    so thinking maybe just sit nic Nat on the pine and pick goldy up after his bye? Wouldn't b much change over in $ and only top 18 scores count during the byes.

Starkingdom · 13/06/2016 at 12:56

Saints on the march.. time to look at possible trades including Savage, Jack Stevens, Arma, and Joey

    johnno2908 · 13/06/2016 at 12:59

    Was going to bring in Dahl round 15. That trade will most likely now be montagna in round 14.

      Starkingdom · 13/06/2016 at 13:05

      Good move.. Saints play ES 6 of 10 games, Joey plays well under the roof.

Tommo09 · 13/06/2016 at 13:12

2182 with Pendles and Petracca to come
Way below par I assume
Praying to get to 2400

Jim · 13/06/2016 at 14:08

2416 with Gawn, Cox and Petracca to come. Around par for this round?

    Tommo · 13/06/2016 at 14:58

    Just above i reckon, 2400-2500 is around par

LJB · 13/06/2016 at 14:17

Pendles or Gawn for captain guys?

Baggy pants · 13/06/2016 at 14:31

Hall went ok in the NEAFL 30 plus kicks 8 tackles and seven inside 50's plus 1 goal.
Not sure if it was good enough for a game in round 14 will have to wait and see.

    tophawk · 13/06/2016 at 14:58

    He will be back.

    Slackerjoe · 13/06/2016 at 16:37

    Thanks Baggy pants. That is reassuring.

Baggy pants · 13/06/2016 at 14:34

Take Abletts 127 or roll the dice on Pendles as captain. Normally would play safe but not having Danger as captain puts me behind the 8 ball.

    LJB · 13/06/2016 at 15:10

    Will you win if you take abletts score. If not go pendles

    I N Pieman · 13/06/2016 at 15:11

    Take the 127

Jackwatt$ · 13/06/2016 at 14:35

On 992 with 10 players to go. How am I going community? Will I improve my current overall ranking?

    Jim · 13/06/2016 at 14:38

    Absolutely shocking sorry mate

    Tommo · 13/06/2016 at 14:59

    Yeah not great mate, you are going to have to score at least 1400 from those 10 to get to par.

Tommo09 · 13/06/2016 at 15:02

Stewart, Trengove or Jansen next week?

    Kev · 13/06/2016 at 15:11

    Trengove, Jansen, Stewart.

    Stewart has some nice numbers. Be interesting to see if he holds his spot now Hodgey is due back

    Tommo09 · 13/06/2016 at 15:13

    I am also getting Austin and I think I might only need one of the midfielders

    Harry · 13/06/2016 at 15:57

    I'd say Trengove for JS. Just don't trust Hawthorn rookies. Stewart could score 100 but still be dropped the following week

    Nigel · 13/06/2016 at 20:13

    I'd say Trengrove by quite some way

hedski · 13/06/2016 at 15:36

Jeeez. Needed 6 or 7 more points out of Tippet for a win in "the A graders" league.
Think I'm top 8 for points but can't string a couple of wins together in that league.

breakevens · 13/06/2016 at 16:16

Max Gawn gives an easy goal away instead of kicking it
Not what we need Gawny!

Boltons blues · 13/06/2016 at 16:19

I think trengrove is just starting to find his touch, last week was a little slow which can be forgiven, this first half you can see him getting back to his best but not quite there yet

tophawk · 13/06/2016 at 16:24

Gawn on fire!!!! Bring home the bacon Gawnie!!

    Shake n bake · 13/06/2016 at 16:34

    Only 52 at half time! Crap 13 touches at 84% 2 goals please!

      tophawk · 13/06/2016 at 16:43

      What!! That's BS! Can't believe that. Bloke absolutely dominated in the second quarter.

        Shake n bake · 13/06/2016 at 16:47

        & 20 hitouts

          Jim · 13/06/2016 at 17:04

          If that was Goldy it would easily be 80SC points based on those stats

Mac · 13/06/2016 at 16:45

Josh Smith lift!!!!!!!

Tommo09 · 13/06/2016 at 16:50

Here is my team
Def: Shaw, Docherty, Laird, Adams, Tippa, DBJ (Collins, Byrne)
Mid: Pendles, Hanners, Danger, Ablett, Priddis, Parker, Libba, Rockliff (Hopper, Keays, MacPherson)
Ruc: Goldy, NicNat (Grimley)
Fwd: Martin, Franklin, Barlow, Wells, Hall, Kerridge (Petracca, Kennedy)

My upgrade targets are
Def: Simpson, Savage, JJ
Mid: Neale
Fwd: Zorko and 1 more

How many downgrades do you think I will need to do?
15 trades and $53k

    burndog · 13/06/2016 at 17:41

    Four downgrades I reckon…Adams, Tippa, DBJ, and Kerridge.

    Boltons blues · 13/06/2016 at 17:53

    And Nic Nat, out for 6-8 weeks now

    Thomas · 13/06/2016 at 18:18

    Who to get for him?

    Tommo09 · 13/06/2016 at 18:58

    scored 2393

Steeeve · 13/06/2016 at 17:21

Was hoping for more from Todd Phillips. Need him to hold his spot, only half decent forward downgrade option in sight!

Nicholas · 13/06/2016 at 17:42

Happy I kept Ben Ken he still has cash to make

    Steeeve · 13/06/2016 at 17:52

    Maybe a tiny bit but I wouldn't want him after the byes

      Nicholas · 13/06/2016 at 18:11

      Still good for cover during the byes

Nicholas · 13/06/2016 at 17:44

Also Nic Nat out for 6-8 weeks due to achillies surgery. Do we go to Goldy if we do not have him?

    Mac · 13/06/2016 at 17:45

    Gawn, Goldy still not 100%

      Nicholas · 13/06/2016 at 17:51

      I have Gawn already lol

        tom · 13/06/2016 at 17:52


    Neverweaken · 13/06/2016 at 17:58

    Will have to do something. Tippett out as well. Traded out Goldie for Gawn. Not sold on Goldie but don't know who else.

    A.J · 13/06/2016 at 18:10

    I reckon the best options are either go to one of the other big three (Gawn, Goldy), or go to callum sinclair/scott lycett who will both be the number one rucks for the next few weeks

Shake n bake · 13/06/2016 at 17:45

Gawn score is bullshit sc scoring is bullshit…sorry.

    Davonaise · 13/06/2016 at 17:57

    110% agree with you
    Also looking at how Pendles scores the same as him lol and that's not the only absurdity.
    Treloar 31 disposals at 71% for 67 pts Ahhh ok?
    Grundy smashed by Gawn 15 disposals a goal at 53% for 86 pts Ahhh ok?
    While Gawn did have a rubbish first qtr no one paled in comparison to him for all on ground efforts for the rest of the game and ends up on 112 pts Ahhh ok?

    tophawk · 13/06/2016 at 17:58

    Gawn pumped out 146 in AFL fantasy today. What did he end up with in SC?

      Shake n bake · 13/06/2016 at 18:05

      Only 112 before scaling. 27 touches 6 more than he's ever got 3 goals had more hitouts at halftime than Grundy witts & cox put together! & you know what I don't want anybody trying to explain why!

        Davonaise · 13/06/2016 at 18:09

        Ikr cause it's just plain stupid

    Moustachio · 13/06/2016 at 20:01

    Lots of uncontested, lots of handballs. Rubbish first quarter. Don't sweat it too much, he is not exactly a pod we are all in the same boat :S

Harry · 13/06/2016 at 17:54

Curse you SC gods! I had it all planned out over the byes to get a full team, could have potentially won all 3 in my league over the bye. Now in one round I lose Natanui, Tippett and Dahlhaus and my whole plan is completely ruined. Damn you. Time for another scotch to ease the pain. Back to the drawing board

Davonaise · 13/06/2016 at 18:00

see this is why I "whine" about sc scoring, it is far from perfect and dream team scores are way more accurate at times over SuperCoach. This game demonstrates the result

    Millicent · 13/06/2016 at 18:09

    Apart from not having the rolling lockout, Dremteam along with it's better scoring makes it a better game than the HeraldSun driven SC.

    Johnny · 13/06/2016 at 19:01

    Disagree. SuperCoach does get it wrong time to time. But overall game effectiveness in Champion data is far more accurate

Neverweaken · 13/06/2016 at 18:03

SC scoring whinge. Thought Gawn would score way more than that. And Treloar. Lots of handballs I know but 67?
Can someone do a breakdown of it.

    Davonaise · 13/06/2016 at 18:08

    Nope totally agree with you here

    Tommo · 13/06/2016 at 18:15

    I think it is due to the possessions having a low impact on the game. Only went at 71% i believe.

      Neverweaken · 13/06/2016 at 18:19

      71% is ok. DeGoey at 55% scored more???

        Davonaise · 13/06/2016 at 18:20

        81% guys

          Davonaise · 13/06/2016 at 18:21

          Oops u guys. On about Treloar sry guys

cashcows · 13/06/2016 at 18:06

Was always gonna be a tough win.
Gawn + 64 vs. Pendles and Sidebottom.
Over 2500 though so that's not too bad.

    Davonaise · 13/06/2016 at 18:08

    I would feel robbed though mate
    Pendles 20 pts too much and Gawn 30 pts less than what he should have but still

      cashcows · 13/06/2016 at 18:12

      Yeah no doubt mate. But I knew this was the situation since yesterday so I've made my peace.
      Though I'm all for a bit of late scaling for a surprise win.

Neverweaken · 13/06/2016 at 18:10

2497 in the end. Treloar 67 hurt. 2194 before today. Treloar, Gawn, Smith and Petracca. Thought I would give 2600 a shake.

Clarky · 13/06/2016 at 18:13

What to do with Tippett? Brought him in this round and he could be out for the season. I have 15 trades left.

    Neverweaken · 13/06/2016 at 18:19

    Shaun Hampson.
    Sort of…….

      Clarky · 13/06/2016 at 18:23

      Nah not going near hampson, dont rate him tbh

Davonaise · 13/06/2016 at 18:17

Pendles 122
Gawn 119

After scaling >.<

    Neverweaken · 13/06/2016 at 18:27

    Just saw that. I went from 2497 to 2517.

breakevens · 13/06/2016 at 18:26

Community just in
Nic Nat is out for up to 8 weeks after achilles surgery
Huge news

tophawk · 13/06/2016 at 18:28

Ended up with 2664 with Gawn scoring a measly 119 for that huge best on ground effort. Might have hit 2700 if Gawn's score reflected his performance, but at the end of the day I am pretty stoked with this score.

Now, who to get for Nic Nat? Goldy, Lycett, or someone else???

    A.J · 13/06/2016 at 18:29

    Glad I didn't play you this week haha

      tophawk · 13/06/2016 at 19:12

      LOL. What's your team's name?

    Shake n bake · 13/06/2016 at 19:09

    Has to be Goldy tophawk

      tophawk · 13/06/2016 at 19:22

      I have the cash to make the straight switch. Despite Goldy still a bit sore, he would fit my bye structure perfectly. I have Cox as my bench back up, (Bye next week), Gawn, (Bye Rd 14) and if I grab Goldy (Bye Rd 15).

      Goldstein is the logical choice. If he is named on Thursday without too much fuss, he will be the man. At least I didn't have to cough up $700K to get him at the start of the season. 20% off at $570K!!!! Bargain.

      Cheers mate

        Moustachio · 13/06/2016 at 20:04

        He will be $600k… Still fair price tho

        hedski · 13/06/2016 at 20:36

        Goldy or Z.Smith as a pod.
        Has been good not great $$$

          hedski · 13/06/2016 at 20:37

          Sry didn't look at byes.

    Leeds17 · 14/06/2016 at 06:00

    It's just a bit deceiving, I think it's a fair score maybe 10 points short of where it should be for impact on the game though he didn't do anything in the first qrt, if you unpack his stats you'll see he had a lot of HOs but only 3 to advantage, a lot of touches but only 6 contested, basically had a similar game to a gun outside midfielder.

Bomber56 · 13/06/2016 at 18:30

i'am shit at this, got Dangers score of 458 and still only ended up with 2340!

And now I hear that both Tippet and Nic Nac are out for the season and Dahlhaus for some time πŸ™

hedski · 13/06/2016 at 18:31

An even 2500 this week enough for 8 of 10 league wins pretty happy.
Take a bow Tophawk top score in my leagues 2664.

    tophawk · 13/06/2016 at 19:07

    Cheers Hedski. I finally nailed the VC after a looong drought. Danger is the toast in this house tonight. Bloody cleaned up up in all leagues this round.

    I'll enjoy it tonite but knowing this caper, I'll be the target of ruthless SC god pay back next week.

    Gotta get rid of Nic Nat for starters. I still don't trust either injury prone Mummy or that Lycett who tends to be up and down like a yoyo. Still, with Nic Nat out, Lycett will have to be looked at.

      hedski · 13/06/2016 at 20:06

      I've got Tippet to deal with now.
      Danger for brownlow.
      Hopefully rise a bit more up ranks.

    Shake n bake · 13/06/2016 at 19:12

    Well done hedski, I beat u just I got 2508 and had Collins 39 Parker 57 buddy 59 and smith 42!

      hedski · 13/06/2016 at 20:08

      Yeah Shaker had Collins Suckling Parker Tippet (excused) stankin it up.
      Still happy.
      Bring on the cull….

        Shake n bake · 13/06/2016 at 20:09

        Good luck buddy!

A.J · 13/06/2016 at 18:32

Two types of scores this round: Those with Danger as Captain, and Those without

    Pauly Walnuts · 13/06/2016 at 18:42

    There were a lot of teams that didn't have with the C on Danger and still scored well, I scored 2551 with Gazza as C and beat 5 teams that did.
    The best thing 2 of them were money leagues

      The Ranger · 13/06/2016 at 19:13

      I had Smith, Collins and Dahlhaus on field and no Danger as Captain but still managed 2426.
      Big round even if you didn't have Danger I reckon.

Johnny · 13/06/2016 at 18:36

Gawn 112 scaled to 119, what a joke!!

    Redgumwon · 13/06/2016 at 18:42

    Bloody oath and Big Maxie should have score a hell of a lot more than Pendles scored

    Richard · 13/06/2016 at 18:48

    Jock should ask someone from sc headquarters to go on the podcast and explain how they came up with that score.

      Davonaise · 13/06/2016 at 18:59


Dean · 13/06/2016 at 18:43

Thats a bummer u didn't get on Danger as C

Davonaise · 13/06/2016 at 18:47

Team name TangofthePVeriety top scored in my league 2723

    breakevens · 13/06/2016 at 18:48

    Very noice

Need a Ruck · 13/06/2016 at 18:49

With nic nat out and i already have gawn looks like i will bring in goldy, anyone know what his be will be this week? might be high after his 170 odd 3 weeks ago. other than that mumford anyone?

    Need a Ruck · 13/06/2016 at 18:51

    *b/e (break even)

      Davonaise · 13/06/2016 at 18:57

      Big Mummy looks a good choice

      Next games are
      Ess, Carl, Coll, Bris, Port, Rich, GC, WCE, Freo and NM

gator59 · 13/06/2016 at 18:50

Nic Nat out for 6 weeks with achilles

    Blueth · 13/06/2016 at 19:19

    that makes me feel a little better after missing out on the Danger train

      The Ranger · 13/06/2016 at 19:20

      That's Nic Nat, Dahlhaus and Hall out going into the byes.
      Not ideal.

LtDraught · 13/06/2016 at 18:50

Finished the long weekend topping my leagues scores with a whopping 2666! More than numbs the pain of Nic Nat's injury. Curious to see some other monolith scores, let me know what you've seen in your leagues community. Saw tophawk got a 2664, brilliant work mate!

    tophawk · 13/06/2016 at 18:58

    Cheers mate! Your score of 2666 is the biggest I have seen to date. Pinidu ended up with 2661. I dont think anyone will touch the magic 3000 this week, but I would not be surprised to see a few high 2800's I reckon.

    Hopefully be in the top 1000 tonight.

    Have a a good one!

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 13/06/2016 at 21:13

      A guy in one my leagues scored 2716!
      He has a cracking team but has used alot if trades to get there.
      I scored over 2500 missed the vc on danger so very happy with 2500.

Dasha · 13/06/2016 at 18:53

wise to hold nic nat until goldy is a bit cheaper?

    @Popey_99 · 13/06/2016 at 19:03

    This is the play I think. Hold through byes if you can have 18 every week and then grab Goldy after round 15. That of course will bring us to only 3 or 4 weeks before NicNat is back anyway so you could then grab a Lycett or sinclair as F7 and use them for a few weeks. Lycett will be 380k in 2 weeks and will have no 1 duties, should average 95.

    Nic Nat will also lose significant conditioning it must be mentioned. You can't run for weeks after achilles surgery obviously so will probably be down on output when he comes back in anyway. Lots to consider.

      Dasha · 13/06/2016 at 20:17

      that is some very helpful insight mate, definetly a lot to consider! cheers

winters · 13/06/2016 at 18:55

what to do with NicNat

Davonaise · 13/06/2016 at 19:10

Gotta feel for teams who have all 3 of these players to deal with
Nic Nat
I only have Nic Nat

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 13/06/2016 at 21:35

    At least we get 3 trades this week

Westy · 13/06/2016 at 19:13

Was happy with 2471 but some of the scores are sweet this week!

Blueth · 13/06/2016 at 19:21

All you people with NicNat and Tippett give us shout out to make everyone who didn't score 2600 feel a little better. Onya guys

    tophawk · 13/06/2016 at 19:26

    Yep got Nic Nat mate. One trade spent right there this week.

    Neverweaken · 13/06/2016 at 19:27

    I have NicNat and Tippett. And traded Gawn in for Goldie

      Harry · 13/06/2016 at 20:25

      Me too. Have to swallow my pride and get Gawn back in

    Tommo · 13/06/2016 at 19:49

    Brought Tippett in this week AND i didnt score 2500…

      winters · 13/06/2016 at 19:50

      i scored 2300 had those 3 plus lee

    Blueth · 13/06/2016 at 19:58

    Lots of gutsy admissions guys in the circle of trust. I hear your pain, I acknowledge it and am comforted by it. Hug

      Tommo09 · 13/06/2016 at 20:01

      Have NicNat and only got 2393

    Bomber56 · 13/06/2016 at 20:38

    count me in and Dahlhaus

      MaccasMarvels · 13/06/2016 at 21:12

      Traded in Tippett as a FWD because Nic Nat's achilles was making me very nervous. Just plain bad luck!!!

Johnny · 13/06/2016 at 19:40

Glad I held Goldy instead of trading to Nic Nat and tippet were telling me !

Pauly Walnuts · 13/06/2016 at 20:11

So, is it as simple as NIc Nat to to Goldy if you have Gawn ?

    Neverweaken · 13/06/2016 at 20:25

    If you can wait for Goldie's 170 to cycle out then do so.
    I traded him out for Gawn. Still not convinced he's worth it.

steve1 · 13/06/2016 at 20:19

any good fwd rookies? im not sold on hams and rose, bit expensive both at 150k.
reid got good js? philips from collingwood got good js?

    Blueth · 13/06/2016 at 20:40

    forward rookies are like abbatoir workers in a small town. They butcher it and the whole thing will probably be shut down pretty soon.

      DankMemes · 13/06/2016 at 20:48

      and here we have it ladies and gentlemen, the best comment of the day. Blueth *Drops mic and walks out*

Neverweaken · 13/06/2016 at 20:32

And supercoach has clocked over! Bang Tippett. Bang NicNat

    DankMemes · 13/06/2016 at 20:45

    *Sweats and crosses finger* Sam Grimley will get a game right?

    CapTkAoS · 13/06/2016 at 20:53

    Thinking I might take the donut for NicNat the next 2 weeks and try to make up points elsewhere, then grab Gawn for NicNat after his rd14 bye. Makes sense??

      Steeeve · 13/06/2016 at 22:40

      That's my plan for now.
      Another option could be Jacob's next wee. Cheap as chips but can he keep it up??

Steeeve · 13/06/2016 at 20:56

I have Goldy and NicNat. If I can field 18 next week is it worth waiting until after Melbourne's bye in round 14 then bringing in Gawn?

    Russ · 13/06/2016 at 21:35

    Just bring him in now.

      Steeeve · 13/06/2016 at 22:39

      Hmm tempting for sure but if I can field a full side I think I'll wait. Should be able to stick to my bye plan perfectly that way.

Don · 13/06/2016 at 21:05

Trengrove seems the obvious option but bloody hell Stewart looks great in his first two games but he has no JS

    Nicholas · 13/06/2016 at 21:12

    Honestly who cares about js at this point. We only need Kade to play during the byes which I think he will after that it does not matter as much. Kade is the obvious choice 50k in the bank is way to valuable at this point with money being scarce

    Steeeve · 13/06/2016 at 23:16

    I'm looking at both, plus Austin. Triple downgrade then Lids, Rance week after. Should still have a good amount of cash to fill my team out, and possibly have premos on the bench.

Mikey · 13/06/2016 at 21:09

Sam J Reid or T Phillips for forward downgrade option ?

    Blueth · 13/06/2016 at 22:02

    phillips, will get games

MaccasMarvels · 13/06/2016 at 21:10

What a mixed bag…….

Didn't loophole Danger (wham)
Traded in Tippett, to cover a sore Nic Nat (bam)
Pendles as C (thank ya ma'am)

Dropped 800 spots and another 80 points behind leaders.

Looks like 19 available this week.

    Russ · 13/06/2016 at 21:31

    Feel your pain…some weeks we just make every wrong decision possible…lucky for my ass, I couldn't give a rats about the overall result.

tophawk · 13/06/2016 at 21:11

Burst's bubble has burst folks!

Another lowish score of 2372. Obviously Brad did not pick Danger as VC/C! He is now second.

"I already did this" is now the number one team with 27,527 points.

That means I have just chomped 300 points off the leaders! Within 754 points off the lead.

The byes will decide this. Where there is life there is hope community!

    'Don't Blush Baby' · 13/06/2016 at 21:18

    Go the 'tophawk' , I always enjoy your comments & advice, Cheers mate

    Russ · 13/06/2016 at 21:28

    Congrats, but don't get cocky, cause karma will come and bite your ass hard!, Murphy's Law ya know, comes for all of us…minimal gloating, maximum results, gloat after you win πŸ™‚

      tophawk · 13/06/2016 at 22:00

      Hi Russ. I agree.

      The byes are here.

      I mite be a stud tonite, but a spud after the byes.

      Let the fun begin.


    Better Luck Nxt Yr · 13/06/2016 at 21:30

    Looks like Burst had Zorko VC into Pendles C.

    See you made the top 1000 at 995 tophawk, nice one.

      Shake n bake · 13/06/2016 at 22:12

      I'm 860 tophawk do u have 18 goin round this week?

Charlie · 13/06/2016 at 21:11

Lachie Neale, elite midfield gun, 86 point win over the lions…… scores 51!! FML

    Russ · 13/06/2016 at 21:33

    Yep, sucks right?…he's not a robot after all!

Bolton's Blues · 13/06/2016 at 21:22

doing the double downgrade this week to bank that cash money, Trengrove and Stewart in MacPherson and Davis out.

341k to utilise during the byes, to bad i only have 14 fit players this week, 15 if Tippa gets up, 16 if Dahl makes a miracle comeback.

Think i might just let this week slide and not touch it anymore

    'Don't Blush Baby' · 13/06/2016 at 21:29

    Not sure if you realise but you get 3 trades this week

      Bolton's Blues · 13/06/2016 at 21:32

      yeah i know, but im not going to trade in someone only to get a 0 later on.

      will cop the brunt of it this week and then probably trade at the end of the byes

        lachlanmcleanportfolio · 13/06/2016 at 22:11

        well if you only have 14 this week that means you should most likely be covered for the other rounds…

    Russ · 13/06/2016 at 21:33

    Don't sweat the Byes man, unless you're a seriously obsessed mofo going for the grand prize.

      Bolton's Blues · 13/06/2016 at 21:36

      im a thousand points behind the current overall leader, can still win, but realistically probably not.

      im in a money league sitting outside the 8 on just %, and only outside the top 4 by 1 win, so im putting that over ranking.

        lachlanmcleanportfolio · 13/06/2016 at 22:11

        If you are 1k behind you dont stand a chance

Lesley · 13/06/2016 at 21:29

Who has better JS out of Sam J Reid and Tom Phillips ??

    james · 13/06/2016 at 21:30

    i would guess Phillips cause he is playing in a weaker side

TRIGGER HAPPY · 13/06/2016 at 21:30

Was at the sydney v gws game on the weekend.
Cracking game but the highlight was the slam dunk. It was quite incredible.
do yourself a favour and go check it out I'm sure it will be on you tube or somewhere.
Scene is:
Half time a bloke from the crowd gets the sherrin and has one kick to land it in 4 car tyres stacked ontop of one another.
From 40m away strikes it sweetly on target nothing but net! Absolute slam dunk didn't touch the sides.
Wins a lazy $100k for that one kick.
Needless to say crowd just erupts!


    MaccasMarvels · 13/06/2016 at 22:09

    Here it is!!! Nice one Trigger……. good call.

    Russ · 13/06/2016 at 22:09

    Yeh ta, saw it on the news, pretty awesome effort, well done to the guy.

winters · 13/06/2016 at 21:34

DEF – Shaw docherty laird enright suckling collins (Tucker lee)
MID – danger hanners ablett ward shiel priddis zieball lewis (hewett davis gresham)
RCK – Gawn nicnat (lorensch)
FWD – martin, dahlhaus, boomer kerridge tipungwuti hall (petracca wyatt)

i have 140k in the bank but will have to use 2 trades this week on nicnat and dahlhaus as i read nicnat is gone 6-8 weeks and dahlhaus a couple of months who are my best options

    Russ · 13/06/2016 at 21:59

    Nicnat for Gawn, Dahlhaus for….the best player you can afford depending on whether you want to spend all your money or save some…with the highest average.

    Nifty · 13/06/2016 at 22:00

    Dahlhaus a couple of months??

      Rocksta · 13/06/2016 at 23:24

      I thought Dahl was out for 3-4 weeks.

      I friggen hope so as I too have Nic Nat and Dahl, and was planning on trading Nic Nat and holding Dahl.

    lachlanmcleanportfolio · 13/06/2016 at 22:10

    Don't listen to Russ.. he is completely off .

    Nicnat to Goldstein is the only required trade for you

Neverweaken · 13/06/2016 at 21:35

Every year plan the byes. Hold players to suit the byes. Plan my trades. And then injuries.
Will hitting the reverse trade button all week this week.
Callum Sinclair for NicNat.
Rocky for Smith
And crazy trade of the week Barlow for Tippett!

    Goosebumps · 14/06/2016 at 12:08

    The third trade, Barlow to Tippett is your best. I gather that Barlow is playing with the discipline that Mad Bad Ross wants him too.

Hoot · 13/06/2016 at 21:42

2548 puts me in 90th place.

The extra mid premo experiment paid off. Ended up taking Libbas score and benching Parker.

All went to plan except for the Rocky VC option.

    Russ · 13/06/2016 at 22:03

    And the point of your gloating is?

      russ so dumb

    Johnny · 13/06/2016 at 22:15

    Insight into his strategy and team. And the point of your comment is russ?

Josh · 13/06/2016 at 21:49

Hey community, got possibly a silly question. Can you use bye players as loophole options? Got two emergencies playing in the midfield and also to use them as captain loophole ?

    steve1 · 13/06/2016 at 21:53

    no, but im interested to know if i put want vc's score and i put the C on nic nat if the emergencys score will still count with only the top 18 counting

      cashcows · 13/06/2016 at 22:05

      What? I'm pretty sure you can use bye players. They just get locked out at the last game.

        steve1 · 13/06/2016 at 22:11

        oh really, didnt think i could last year, now Ive confused myself. your probably right as it lets me put a C on pendleberry right now and he has a bye.

    Russ · 13/06/2016 at 22:04

    Can't see it changing from how it usually works, most wouldn't have any spares on the bench.

Dasha · 13/06/2016 at 21:57

whats logan austin's job security like?

    Steeeve · 13/06/2016 at 22:18

    50/50. Really want to bring him in this week and think he deserves to keep his spot but Hombsch is back…

Roger · 14/06/2016 at 00:07

Actually had a half decent score considering I didn't have danger as captain.
Scored 2370 with pendles as captain.
Had 15 players score over a ton so I'm proud of my boys.
Obviously not having danger always had me way behind but I thought I was competitive despite the extra 229 points down only losing by 30 and 75. With both opponents having him as captain.

Anyways only 2 trades this week
Davis to Trengove
Hopper to Stewart.
Leaves me with 520 in the bank.
2 away from premium
Finally trades will be
Cox to Martin
Still give me 232k and then my last trade will be
Collins when he gets peak price to Burygone from hawthorn given his low price and decent scoring.

CapTkAoS · 14/06/2016 at 00:37

Any love for Sam Mitchell at the bargain price of 440k? He is only listed as being out for 1 week. I know we only want the absolute ultra premos from now on, but if he has got his body right and fresh after the byes he could do some damage. Especially when Hodgy comes back to share some of the heat.

    annoying old lady · 14/06/2016 at 11:54

    hmmm…tempting price, but I think you'll get what you pay for. He'll likely miss another 1 or 2 games through being rested, and he has had ongoing calf issues for the last few seasons. If you pay more and get an alternate premo, they'll likely play every game. If you pick Mitchell, just know he won't play every game for the rest of the season.

CapTkAoS · 14/06/2016 at 00:58

Another dumb question. Normally you can trade during the round as long as the players club has not played yet. During the bye rounds, can you trade out a player who is having their bye?

    Cameron · 14/06/2016 at 01:23

    Yes you can

The Beard · 14/06/2016 at 09:45

My question to the community is this :

With Dalhaus gone for a few (who was my target this week) do you think Merrett or Delidio is a better option for a keeper for the season?

    annoying old lady · 14/06/2016 at 10:07

    Deledio is a rolled gold superstar of the competition and a fantasy powerhouse once he gets rolling.

    Merrett is having a breakout 3rd year in the competition, but has some fairly poor scores thrown in with some very good ones to even out his average at 103.8.

    Deledio should score you more points from here on out. Both seem to be pretty solid options, however can Merrett keep up his breakout form, and can Deledio stay on the park?

      The Beard · 14/06/2016 at 12:36

      Based on the overall scores this year Deledio has had more low scores then Merrett.

      I'm not sure on who to take, it really has thrown me in a mix up losing Dalhaus…

annoying old lady · 14/06/2016 at 09:58

No party is without a cleanup.

Scored a very nice 2568, but a spanner has been thrown into the works with Dahlhaus and Naitanui succumbing to injury. With Dahlhaus, I'm going to try and hold depending on the length of injury (at the moment I'm hearing 3-4 weeks) and Naitanui will be missing for a few months!

Nic Nat -> Gawn or Goldy?

Dahlhaus hold/trade?

Sitting on 13 trades, 1 off full premo (Petracca)

    Rocksta · 14/06/2016 at 10:43

    Exact same position as me.
    Dahl, Nic Nat injured, 13 trades, one on field rookie left to upgrade.
    For what it's worth, Im trading Nic Nat to Goldy ( already have Gawn), and am holding Dahl.

Clarky · 14/06/2016 at 10:18

What to do wit Tippett? Brought him in this week and then he goes to get injured and out for 6 weeks. Hold or trade?

    Rocksta · 14/06/2016 at 10:48

    6 weeks too long to hold IMO

    I N Pieman · 14/06/2016 at 11:02

    For that long I think you need to get rid of him. That's pretty much most of the rest of the season

@Matr1x23 · 14/06/2016 at 10:43

Hey guys,

I could really use some help from the community. Unfortunately I copped it this weekend with Nic Nat and Tippett both going down. I've only got 13 trades now and $172.6 in the war chest. Not really sure what to do next. Here's my team;

Defence: Shaw, Gibson, Laird, Adams, Byrne-Jones, Byrne (Collins, Lee)

Midfield: Dangerfield, Hannerery, Priddis, Rockliff, Gray, Liberatore, Parker, Cripps (Petracca, Davis, Hopper)

Rucks: Gawn, Nic Nat (Cox)

Forwards: Zorko, Wells, Tippett, Barlow, Martin, Hall (Kerridge, Grimley)

    Rocksta · 14/06/2016 at 10:56

    Not sure how it affects your byes so you'll have to run it through the bye rounds after trading, but:

    Davis to Trengove
    Nic Nat to Goldy
    Should still have enough to upgrade Byrne Jones to a Premo.
    See if it works okay. Remember, you can always reverse trades.

chris · 14/06/2016 at 11:11

thoughts on my team and who should i be targetting to get in.

DEF: shaw, simpson, boyd, smith, suckling, yeo BENCH: ruggles, collins
MID: danger, selwood, ablett, ward, steven, parker, priddis, trengrove BENCH: hopper, davis, mcpherson
RUCK: goldy, gawn BENCH grimley
FWD: martin, zorko, wells, hall, barlow, kerridge BENCH: petracca, menadue

thinking of jumping on a cheap mid (ie zaharakis) to fully premo my mid..
then get in a pendlebury in the coming weeks to have zaharakis as M9
also aim to upgrade petracca to a premo forward (have kerridge as F7
then upgrade ruggles to docherty and have smith/yeo as D7

    Rocksta · 14/06/2016 at 11:26

    Sounds Good, and your team looks good.

    Make sure you don't run out of trades though, and keep at least 4-5 for finals. Not many people will have the luxury of such great bench cover.

Harley · 14/06/2016 at 11:17

With tippet going down for 6 weeks do we think Sinclair could be a worthy F7 at only around $345k?

Rocksta · 14/06/2016 at 11:18

People are not wrong about the SC Gods:

– Early last week, I'd planned my trades leading up to and during the bye rounds, bringing me to full Premo in Rd 15. Rd 12 No trades, Rd 13 Josh Smith down to Jansen or Trengove ( 1 trade). Rd 14, Wagner up to Simpson, Petracca up to Monty/Lids. ( 2 Trades)
– Thursday Teams drop , Hall Dropped. Thus needed to upgrade Smith to Monty as no forward bench cover.
– Rd 12 Matches, Dahl and Nic Nat suffer significant injuries. Now need to trade Nic Nat to Goldy ( sideways trade).
Plans now well and trully out the window. A common story I'm sure.
Oh well, I guess in a strange distorted way, that's why we love playing this game!
Hang in there Community!

Harley · 14/06/2016 at 11:25

Gibson or pittard?

Leaning towards pittard more so because of price
