MOC

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

Boo-urns

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

MOC

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

nipplepassers

Yep same here 🙁

medadsson

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 🙂

Jeremy

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

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

jezzahill

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

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

I should say last fwd upgrade, not mid sorry.

Rocksta

Sounds like a good idea to me.

SD6_

Could you downgrade to a rookie price player instead?

psyrick

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

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

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

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

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

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

Richmond don't tag midfielders often.

Starkingdom

..and Go Cats

Starkingdom

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

Moustachio

Didn't quite get there, decent score though.

Hubba

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

Have left pants on jock…

Trent

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

Starkingdom

nice..

Mar Got Robbie

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

Shaw or pendles C ?

Mar Got Robbie

pendles

Nathan

Danger

Nuggety

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

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

Bolton's Blues

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

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

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

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

tophawk

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

Nathan

Yeah you wont take adams score as he didnt play

Hoot

Best C options from the following?

Shaw
Hanners
Gawn
Ablett
Ward

Unfortunately didn't put the VC on Danger.

Starkingdom

See above

Hoot

Yup.

Onto it.

Only Gawn had me questioning Gary.

Pauly Walnuts

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

Starkingdom

50/50
Hopper higher ceiling but tough opponent..
Smith still developing, doesn't look likely yet

Mar Got Robbie

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

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

Who's your C on at the moment?

Ben

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

CoachDamo

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

SD6_

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

Kev

Rookie mistake there, Ben!

Ben

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

Tommo09

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

Tommo09

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

Told ya
2182 with Pendles and Petracca to go

Bomber

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

Shake n bake

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

mfawcett77

Martin all day IMO

DankMemes

yep martin then look at lids after the bye.

mfawcett77

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

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

Blueth

did the same 🙁

johnno2908

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

Smith with longer track record but Hopper for ceiling

breakevens

Smith for me

Beagz

Can someone please help me ASAP??!?

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

PLEASE

Daz

yes as long as there the emergency for that position

Beagz

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

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

Beagz

Awesome, thanks daz

Marron

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

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

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

Shags

Pendles for consistantsy

Daz

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

johnno2908

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.

james

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

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

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

Shags

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.

breakevens

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

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

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

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

Daz

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

Derek

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

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

Chubby McChubby

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

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

Tony

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 ?

Cheers,
Tony

Tommo09

Savage for a POD?

Keenbutclueless

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

Saundo

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

Moustachio

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

Any news on Dahlhaus?

Danners

2-3 weeks according to Gameday

Derek

Yes.

Alex

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

Derek

Is Tom Lee the new Zac Dawson?

A.J

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

Zac Dawson is one-of-a-kind

Harry

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

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

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

Davonaise

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

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

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

Davonaise

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

Davonaise

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

Daz

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

Davonaise

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

Matt

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

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

Liam

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