Nathan Buckley

Hey Community,

Need help with my side.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Regards,

Nathan

Eddie McGuire

Hey bucks,

Well done on destroying Collingwood.

Don't know why you are playing spuds like Jess white, witts and Grundy all in the one team yesterday.

A good player doesn't necessarily make a good coach.

Mick Malthouse

Lol…

Paul Roos

Hi Eddy,

If you need some help with your club, I'm available next year.

Give me a call after September.

James Hird

Hi Ed,

I'd love to catch up for a chat. I hear Roos is going to make millions saving Brisbane for the AFL anyway.

Given I just got a nice payout from my last employer, I can offer my services at a discounted rate.

I've got some great ideas on how I can 'enhance' your team's performance.

Justin Leppitsch

Hi James,

I'm really interested in what you have to offer, in regards to enhancing performances.

Also, do you have anything to increase loyalty levels in players?

Thanks.

Ross Lyon

Hi Eddie.

Ive just destroyed Freomantle and im nearly ready to walk out on them (you know just like the Saints)

If you want a coach with a boring play style and someone who drops good players, hit me up

Bluey McKenna

G'Day Bucks.
I arrived at the MCG yesterday to find that you were indeed playing Witts, Grundy and Cox in the same team. When I saw it on Thursday night I naturally assumed that Witts or Grundy would be a late change.
I understand you did this to try and tire Gawny out, and thereby negate his influence………………Gee that went well!
I, of course, would never make such a Rookie mistake (You get that Ed?).

Travis Cloke

NATHAN I wont b coming to training this week i have pneumonia from playing in the seconds on the weekend.
Ross if you are reading this can you leave your email address so I can send you my resume?
I was talking to Cam McCarthy the other day and he said you were taking resumes?
Mine is [email protected]

Thank you

Travis.

Ross Lyon

I’m not sure what you’re alluding to but it’s not ideal. At the end of the day, we’re under no illusions. We need to bring great effort and need to reset, review and refocus. Make no mistake, it’s a ruthless and uncompromising competition. We’re all good people but was that a reasonable effort? I think it’s self evident, with respect, that we didn’t stick to our structures to be truthful. Ultimately we’re a no excuses football club. We need to bring a higher output and discipline to our next contest.

Alastair Clarkson

Travis,

I would be happy to take on your services. We have a habit of taking old players well passed their primes and turning them into superstars once again. Think Burgoyne, Hale, Gibson, Spangher, Frawley, Lake.

You can contact me on 04-THORN

Travis Cloke

Alastair,

Thank you for the invite.
I tried ringing the number provided but was put on hold, there was a lot of static in between bursts of we are the champions.
Maybe i should just pop in for a chat?
i know you are not supposed to talk to contacted players but this hasn't been a problem in the past for your club

Let me know a suitable time, my calander is pretty free at the moment i dont have a lot going on

Thanks

Travis.

Alastair Clarkson

Travis,

We do get quite a large number of people trying to join late in their careers to win premierships, which is probably the reason you were on hold for a substantial amount of time.

I'm happy to head down to the Collingwood reserves this week to chat face to face if you're still there next week?

Let me know,

Alastair

Travis Cloke

Thanks Alastair,
I understand.
Unfortunately due to my career being (mis)managed by NATHAN I am laid up in bed with pneumonia.
I will be in touch once I am back on my feet.
Please note: I will however have to adjust to playing away games in Tassie as with Collingwood our away game were at Ethiad. Might make for a nice change to actually get on a plane and travel to play football.
I am however very familiar the MCG and would complement Gunston. I think we would work well together. Decoy and the forward.

I WILL be in touch.

Thank you

Travis.

Southern S

Spanger a superstar? Why don't you give him any games then Alistair?

Alastair Clarkson

to be fair to clarko, he's had a calf injury for 26 of the 36 games since he played in the grand final, 3 of those he reinjured his calf. been hard to get a run at it

Danners

Someone must be a bit bored…

Damian Hardwick

Hi Nathan,
I feel that you've absolutely nailed the "step backwards" part. You should continue to play the types of players like Witts, Grundy, Cloke Cox, these types of players. Play them at the same time at various stages.

Believe it or not, you're a better team than last year.

Gillon McLachlan

Guys…. I've spoken to you about ranting on social media!
Report all to my office 9am sharp…

Tony Shaw

Nath. It looks like you're running low on premiership players to either trade out our force into retirement. Instead try stacking your list full of 'triers' , 'good ordinary players' and 'jobbers' like i did . Then, revolve your game plan around one player… "…kick it to Pendles"… I'm here to help if you need me.

Regs
Tony Shaw

winters

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

Nicnat listed as 6-8 weeks and Dahlhaus listed at 4 weeks what should i do

GoHawks

Nic Nat to Goldy
Hold Dahlhaus

aussiedoc3r

ive got the same problem – though dahlhaus will drop 40k when he comes back.
what do people think about mummy at GWS for nic nat. looks like an easy run home and after goldy all the rucks are averaging the same but mummy is cheap.

Richo

Full of PODS I like it

dad

i rekon dahl will be out for about 6 weeks aswell, docs said he will be in a brace for 3 weeks then can resume to normal training loads and then they will make a decision on when he is to play so chances are he will miss one or two extra after the 3 weeks of being strapped up and not training properly

Chill

Had been plodding along quite happily until this round. Absolutely crushed and destroyed. Missed Danger as VC or C. Had KK and Dahl. Just bought in Lee. Have Nic Nat. Buddy didnt fire.
Billings got dropped (my big breakout POD this year.. ha)
I tumbled from the top 2500 to 8000th.
Now my trade plan through the byes is stuffed.
Not even going to bother. I'm done.

GoHawks

Fight on Chill, like the tide, luck can change.

Steve

What do I do with the stains in my supercoach underpants that are Sam Mitchell and Luke Parker? Do I stick fat and hope they can regain their form or do I offload in favour of other premium supercoach performers? Your input is appreciated community

Pinidu

Keep them for the long run mate. Only look to move them on if you complete your team and have extra trades to spare.

Derek

Sam will come good, especially once Hodge is back and takes some of the heavy lifting off his back

TRIGGER HAPPY

The word is parker is carrying a leg injury.
The bye next week should do him and sydney the world of good.

Leeds17

Mitchell will come good post byes, Parker will even out to about a 105 season average IMO

Johnny

Parker will fire this week just wait and see!!

Southern S

Most likely he will, but could consider side trading him around finals time for a POD if he continues to get average scores. That's if they have enough trades.

Pinidu

20K and 16 trades left
DEF: Shaw, Simoson, Laird, Rance, Gibson, Adams (Lee, Collins)
MID: Danger, Ablett, Hannerbery, Pendles, Priddis, Gray, Libba, Mills (Dunkley, Smith, Petracca)
RUC: Gawn, Nic Nat (Wyatt)
FWD: Dusty, Barlow, Greene, Hall, Wells, Kerridge (AMT, Paine)

Thinking of:
Smith –> K. Stewart
Nic Nat –> Goldstein
Adams/AMT –> Ward/Rockliff/Z. Merrett

Thoughts?

Kev

Yes to the first two, no to the third. Depending how you feel about the byes trading in a premium this round is a bit of a waste considering they'll miss next week or the week after

Pinidu

Would downgrading Kerridge be a better option as my third trade? It frees up heaps of cash and he has the bye this week.

Jimmy

darcy byrne jones to either pittard rance zac williams or rich? thanks

Southern S

Not Rich

lachlanmcleanportfolio

rance

Leeds17

Looks like Zac WIlliams has cemented his spot TBH and had he played round one would be in a lot more teams I think he's a gun and can definitely keep up what he's doing that being said Rance is the smart option I think.

Bobby Singh

How does the VC loophole in bye weeks work?

Derek

same, but now we have a heap of non-player to loop with.

Big G

How many games will Jansen get?

Southern S

You can't seriously expect people to know this.

siri

4

ben fisher

4 is correct

Jack

Nostradamus says 3

jack

maybe 3 or 7

Tommo

Between 4-11

Bobby Singh

Hey community, which 2 would you choose out of:

Neale, Gray and Zorko?

Derek

Zorko is a forward.

Gray is a better option than neale. Neale had been over-achieving, last week showed what he can do

lachlanmcleanportfolio

no. You can't say that after one poor performance. Every player this season has had at least 1 poor performance… He was due mate.

clare

zorko dual I have him mids

The Ranger

He needs to be in your fwd line so that you can fit as many high scoring mids as possible.

Southern S

Neale has been better every year since he's started how can you say he's over achieving?

He's 23 and could be getting better, isn't that a possibility?

He's leading the comp in many important statistics.

Tim

Personally, I'd go Neale and Zorko (albeit when their prices drop) – although I did get Gray in when his price dropped and will be getting in Neale and Zorko when their prices fall too – they both have exceptionally high BE's, I reckon Neale will be sub 550k in two weeks time.

Derek

you are right. if you get Neale, wait a couple of weeks

David

If I put vc on danger and c on Gawn and danger kills it can I put the c on say Pendles? & keep dangers score?

GoHawks

Yes

Tiges

DEF:
Shaw, Gibson, Boyd, Simpson, Laird, Tippa // Collins, Williams,

MID:
Dangerfield, Ward, Gaz, Priddis, Mitchell, Gray, Libba, Smith // Hopper, Davis, Jansen.

RUCK:
Gawn, Goldy // Cox

FWD:
Zorko, Montagna, Wingard, Barlow, Wells, Kerridge // Petracca, Wyatt.

13 trades left, $292k left in the kitty.
Thinking of just trading out Smith this week to Stewart, having $500k in the kitty and then upgrading Tippa to Docherty and Kerridge to Dusty next week,.. is that stupid upgrading to them when they're at their maximum price?
I'm hoping to then upgrade Davis to Haneberry in R15 and downgrade Hopper and then have Petracca on the bench until Dahlhaus goes down to $400k and then I can straight swap him as F7.

Any other tips?

Southern S

Seems a bit of a waste to trade out Hopper, sure he's turned into a rubbish pick but GWS also have some easier games coming up and he could be a slow burner and decent midfield bench back up as the season progresses.

He's made only 70k just seems a waste of trades to get rid of him in round 15.

Tiges

Trading him due to my bye round structure,.. would only be fielding 15 players otherwise so would bank the coin and be able to upgrade Davis to Haneberry,.. or even Sloane/Bont.

Deccas

If you already have Rance, and need 2 forwards would u trade in Martin and Lids? 3 Richmond is that bad because they aren't good or would u go Montagna but I don't think he is consistent.
Thoughts, Jock and Community?!

Steeeve

My thoughts: most people will have all three after Richmond's bye and those people should be pretty happy. Only problem will be finding pods elsewhere.

Southern S

Deledio only 3.8% ownership, that's hardly going to change to most people having him after their bye, maybe he will get to 15% ownership, still a POD really for that time of the year.

I 'm not sure why you'd worry about having three players from the same team, unless you think they have tough games at a crucial time of the season ie SC finals.

Steeeve

Hmm we will see, I'd imagine most players worth their salt will bring him in, especially now Dahl is not a trade in option during the byes.
Anyway we make the same point, having all three is not bad at all.

Jack

Are Richmond really shot for 2016? Shown can come home with wet sail. I like both lids & dusty – but only one possibly & has a mid to free up my forwards/midfielders.

@RoyWetard

I didn't make Danger captain this week, took the VC off Rocky last week when he got 204, took the VC off Goldy when he got 173, had 2 donuts (Barlow in round 9 and Goldy last week) and yet I'm ranked 303rd. I just wish I knew how to correctly pick a captain.

I'm trading Keays to Trengrove which will leave me with 13 trades left. Considering I manage to screw something up every week I'm done pretty well and gotten very lucky apart from my captain woes.

Deano

Here in my current team community, I am a little stuck as what to do Re: BYE rounds.

DEF: Shaw, Rance, Laird, Rich, Adams, AMT (Collins, Williams)
MID: Danger, Pendles, Hanners, GAJ, Ward, Libba, Wines, Smith (MacPherson, Mathieson, Dunkley)
RUCK: Nic Nat, Goldy (Cox)
FWD: Martin, Wells, Motlop, Rioli, Barlow, Petracca (Hall, Wyatt)

I am thinking of trading the following in Round 13
MacPherson to Trengrove
Nic Nat to Gawn Leaves me with $396,500 in the kitty

Round 14 Adams to Docherty
Round 14 Smith to Phillips MID/FWD
Round 14 AMT to Simpson Leaves me with $235,600

Round 15 Petracca swing to my mid via DPP (Phillips) this should allow me a minimum of $566k or $586k if Petracca scores real well this week.

This leaves me with 8 trades and I most likely will also trade either Motlop or Hall to Zorko, or trade them both to bring in Zorko & Merrett or Gunston post byes.

Lastly I could save a trade if I didn't go MacPherson to Trengrove and just took my chances and went MacPherson to Phillips as I must bring in a MID/FWD in my midfield in order to upgrade Petracca to a elite premo midfielder. I cannot figure another way to do it.

Thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated community. If you have any ideas PLEASE share them with me. Good luck to ALL

Tiges

Looks pretty good mate,
my main query is just why aren't you downgrading Smith this week to Philips? Won't change your bye structure as well and just free up a trade if any injuries strike next week.

Deano

I actually contemplated that however if another injury occurs to one of my Premo players then I might be forced not to make that trade regarding Smith to Phillips. Also I would like to make sure Phillips is named before bringing him into my team, as I have enough rookies that are not playing such as MacPherson, Mathieson & Wyatt.

To be honest I would much rather do just the one trade such as just Smith to Phillips however I feel Trengove is a must have for bench cover before his price goes through the roof. I just wish Trengrove wasn't on the bubble this week.

smart as s

i agree, would not be surprised if phillips isnt named round 14

Will Griggs

My trade plan for the byes:

Currently have around 20K and 16 trades.

Round 13)

J. Smith > K. Stewart
Kerridge > J. Rose
Naitanui > Goldstein

422K in the kitty

Round 14)

Adams > Docherty
AMT > Zorko/Montagna

Will then only have one rookie left (Mills or Petracca on field)

Your thoughts Community?

Tommo

Not sure about Rose's JS at all, very questionable. Other than that, like it.

Will Griggs

Trengove through DPP a better option?

Tommo

Yup, secure JS, probably even score better

Deano

You are CRAZY bringing in K Stewart as he has no JS – period. Get Trengove before Stewart mate.

Clarky

Thoughts on JPK as a POD this week? in under 5% of teams which astounds me considering he scoring hasn't dropped below 95 since round 1. My only concerns are his price, is 600k paying too much? (At the moment, i can afford any midfielder i want) And his ceiling. Only gone above 125 once.
He looks to be a very consistent scorer, which is needed in my midfield with the likes of Ablett, Sidebum and Selwood in my midfield showing they can be inconsistent from time to time. So should i be going with JPK as a POD, or go for the likes of Hannes or Danger?

jezzahill

If you haven't got Danger or Hanners then I'd be opting for those two over JPK. They've already shown they can produce monster scores

Clarky

fair enough, who would you pick from the 2? I know Danger is the more favourable option, but i was thinking Hanners as he is more of a POD than Danger. At 20% ownage, he is by no means a POD, but in less teams.

Dave

If you don't have danger he has to be in your team asap

AreYaNuts

Clarky u answered your own question mate. You state u want a consistent midfielder, you can afford any midfielder, yet you dont have Dangerfield, thats a given mate, just get Danger end of story u should of had him about 12 rounds ago.

To contemplate JPK who is $600k over the likes of Danger who is only $60k more in price is just crazy, if you were contemplating a $500k midfielder then fair enough, however if u don't have Danger in your side then its a no brainer, the guy is averaging 133 – these stats are GAJ stats and having the ilk of Danger just as a piece of mind as your VC or C option each week is priceless.

Sorry to sound abrupt mate but get Danger FFS.

Clarky

Yeah, you're true mate. Completely understand where you are coming from. Thanks for the response.

Southern S

Danger the no.1 scorer in SC. Then he gets a 229.

What does the bloke have to do to get in your freakin team lol.

It doesn't matter if he's a POD when someone is scoring like that, if you don't have them, you don't have a chance.

Micky

Community, plz help me out this week with trades, i got 13 trades left with 154k
def- shaw, simpson, laird, gibson, pittard, DBJ,(collins, lee)
mid- danger, pendles, priddis, parker, shiel, sam mitchell, liberatore, KEAYS,( davis, dunkley, macpherson)
ruck- gawn, NIC NAT(goertz)
fwd- martin, zorko, j kennedy, barlow, hall, montagna,(petracca, mcgovern)
ANY IDEAS COMMUNITY PLZZZZZ!!!!!

Southern S

Well you've put your trade targets in capitals right? Doesn't seem like you need ideas.

Dean

Southern S
He does need idea's mate because its pointless trading DBJ & Keays this week, for TWO reasons.
Firstly because both are playing this week and most importantly both of their break evens are not high at all, DBJ break even is 69 and his average is 74 & Keays average is 59 and his break even is 59 this week.
Hypothetically speaking even if DBJ & Keays had a break even of 100 I would still keep them for 1 last week.

You want to have as many players on the field as you can during the bye rounds, if DBJ scores a 70 and Shaw scores a 50 then he gets DBJ score not Shaw's lower score, I know its highly unlikely that DBJ will score under Shaw but you just never know.

Dean

Round 13 trades
#1 Mcgovern to Austin +$176,000
#2 Davis to Trengove + $150,200
#3 Nic Nat to Goldy
Leaves you with $402,400

Round 14 trades
#1 Dunkley to Jack Steven or Trelore or any midfielder you wish, just select a player from these teams: Adelaide, Gold Coast, Richmond, Saints, Carlton, Collingwood – If you chose Steven this leaves you with $35,100
#2 Petracca to any rookie you wish, maybe consider Tom Phillips or James Rose however Rose will most likely have played his 3rd game by round 14 so forget him if he plays this week as his price will rise.
#3 DBJ to Docherty this will leave you with $7,000

THIS WILL LEAVE YOU WITH 7 TRADES LEFT

The idea in these bye rounds especially the first bye round such as round 13 is to trade in the non playing players such as Mcgovern & Davis to generate cash in order for you to become FULL PREMIUM as soon as possible. Don't stress out about trading players such as Davis & Patracca who are still generating cash, it does not matter at this point because you want the best possible side as soon as you can.
Leave DBJ on field in round 13 then get rid of him in round 14 because you want as many players playing on field as you can during the bye rounds because only your highest scoring 18 players points are calculated.

If you follow what I just wrote then you will be basically full premium before round 14 starts, you have a good side mate – Good Luck.

Kevdog

Here's my team
DEF: Shaw, Simpson, Gibbo, KKolo, Adams, DBJ (Collins, Broad)
MID: Danger, Hanners, Ablett, Steven, Jelwood, Shiel, Libba, Smith (Davis, Keays, Macpherson)
RUC: Gawn,Martin (Currie)
FWD: Dusty, Zorko, Wells, Barlow, Hall, Kerridge (Petracca, Tippa)

Trades this week: Keays to Stewart, Davis to Trengove, Smith to Ward. Will have 186K and 13 trades after those trades. Thoughts?

Tommo

Trading Keays this week even though it isnt his bye?

Kevdog

I need the cash.

Southern S

Davis could have more growth left in him seems to have picked it up a bit.

I'd trade MacPherson for Trengove if possible. Ward has a bye in round 15 may as well wait till after?

Not a big fan of the Stewart trade in either.

Southern S

Actually the Stewart trade is alright as he's only 100k, but expect little JS and probably end up like Hopper who will make bugger all and being a waste of trades.

Fine though to make cash and acceptable to have a donut after the byes anyway.

Blake

Here is my team community, I am a bit stuck going in to the BYE rounds.
12 trades remaining and $18,000 in the bank.
*Means they have the BYE this week.

DEF: Shaw Docherty* Smith* DBJ S.Collins KK* (Joyce* K.Collins)
MID: Pendles* Danger(VC) Hanners Parker Libba Zaka Kerridge* Smith* ( Hall* Davis* Hopper)
RUCK: Gawn Goldy (Cox*)
FWD: Wells Martin* Motlop Wingard Petracca Chol*(C) (Simpkin M.Adams)

Blake

THOUGHTS

Southern S

You're basically stuffed unless you do all three trades?

Ditch Hall, Josh Smith and maybe Simpkin?

Your backline needs urgent attention, probably the weakest I've seen at this stage of the year.

Blake

I know, I'm in a lot off trouble

Southern S

If you have enough trades and use them wisely you should be alright though.

A.J

What's everyone doing with libba? Obviously he's doing well at the moment but are people looking at moving him on during the byes? Or are people settling with him as M8?

Sean

Keeping as M8..i have parker who has been worse than libba so will keep both and see how it pans out later on in the season

Neverweaken

Now have other concerns. Otherwise to Rocky or Gray

Southern S

It's Tom Liberatore. Why do so many want to move him on?

Leeds17

I was ridiculously close to getting rid of him last week for Rocky but held in the end and he rewarded me, going to use him and Duncan for M8/9

BKW

I'll likely keep him as my M8/M9

breakevens

Good downgrade options for defence or forward

MaccasMarvels

Rose from Sydney for FWD?

Dyaln

Kerridge-> Danger
BenKen-> Stewart
Dahl-> ward

Bolton's Blues

havent got anyone else to move instead of Kerridge? hes doing fine to hold for the rest of the byes

Dylan

Thought I wouldn't have had enough to trade Danger and Ward in.

Dylan

Bolton's Blues

Danger and Gray?
Danger and Rocky?

Andrew

Brilliant stuff tonight guys. A little bit of wee came out listening to Peter go on about Mason Cox!!

@Matr1x23

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)

breakevens

Thoughts community
Ins: Phillips, Trengove, Goldstein
Outs: Davis, Nic Nat, Dalhaus
Leaves me with 456k

Liam

I'm holding Dahlhaus

Danners

Good trades if you have trades and your byes work out

Johnny

How many trades people have left and plan to have after the byes??

Bolton's Blues

13 left
hopefully 8 left after the byes, 7 if i trade Dahl out, not sure yet

TRIGGER HAPPY

Pretty much the same
Don't have dahl but will probably grab him once he comes back and gets back on the park for a couple

Blueth

17 now, 12 post

Johnny

Yeah I'm struggling to decide about Dahl. Is top 3 forward but a month seems a bit long..

I'm at 16, 7 or 8 after byes

Neverweaken

Have Tippett and NicNat. So what to do?
Is Goldie playing hurt. I swapped him to Gawn and don't really want to risk bringing him back.
If not Goldie then who?
Gut is telling me Hampson. Richmond has finally got its structure right. Think he has improved confidence and can give me 90 + for the rest of the year. And 345k DPP
Otherwise if not Goldie then who is a set and forget ruckman?

Steeeve

Jacobs cheap. Blicavs cheap. Martin super cheap but screw that heartache.

BKW

Hampson – don't like it, get Gawn or Jacobs

Neverweaken

Lots of plans will depend on teams thursday. Will Tippa play?
Any forward rookies worth getting. Not worried about bubble. Just someone cheap to trade in who may play this year.

Blueth

Highly doubt Tippa will play. Considering Essnedon have the BYE next week i think they'll give him a 3 week rest in total then back post break.

TRIGGER HAPPY

Sosos should be close after the bye

Blueth

I'm a bombers fan but i like that boy. A lot. I like him, a lot.

TRIGGER HAPPY

Might b ideal for a final downgrade

Neverweaken

Thankyou all.

The Ranger

I think Philips will get a few games now. Handy DPP too.

Southern S

Not sure why Tippa wouldn't play, he was rested last week, so surely they'd give him a run as they also have next week off.

Steeeve

God I hope you are correct.

MaccasMarvels

Yeah Tippa should play. He wasn't injured. Just had the weekend off while his team got smashed by the Hawks??!!

Blueth

I'm gonna be a bit controversial and hold this week and then make 3 trades next week (OUT: McGovern, Smith, Davis)
Just don't need any cover yet (20 playing)
Explain to me why this is a bad idea…

DEF: Shaw, Laird, Simpson, Docherty, Bartel, Hurn (Cuddles, Collins)
MID: Danger, Parker, Bontempelli, Shiel, Rockliff, Libba, Priddis, Ablett (Davis, Hopper, J. Smith)
RUCK: Maxy, Goldy (Cox)
FWD: Hall, Zerrett, Wells, Greene, Petracca, AMT (McGovern, Grimley)

17 trades left, RANK: 2586 (top 1%)

Neverweaken

Not controversial. Before NicNat Tippett I had planned only one trade. Getting in rockie.

Blueth

Well Patch must be in a bit of bother if he's making 9.

The Ranger

Why hold Smith and Davis this week?
They're not playing so can't make you money and there are other rookies on the bubble.
Cash generation continues to be important

Blueth

I suppose you're right it's just that the rookies this week don't fill me with confidence.
Trengrove: bit expensive and sure to be rested soon
Stewart: Poor JS
Jansen: Plays for Brisbane

Leeds17

Rose looks to have solid scoring base and Hams looks to have very solid JS both inflated price though

Southern S

Maybe Smith to Trengove is all I'd do.

jezzahill

Am I mad for considering Shane Mumford as a POD in replacement for NicNat community? He's probably as cheap as he'll get and the Giants have a VERY comfortable run home.

helmer

i must be mad as well. already pulled the trigger (same reasons)

Southern S

Thinking about it, not sure on Goldy with the knee problems.

Danners

No you are not mad, but he is a bit injury prone

Southern S

Agreed although he has played every game this season.

Steeeve

And averages about 15 every other year. He's due to miss…

Southern S

Yep he's a massive risk, one I can't afford to take.

I'm going to sit for a week and see what happens with goldy, can still field 19 this week so will be fine.

jezzahill

True he hasn't played 18 games since 2013 through a combination of suspensions and LTI's. His continuity seems good this year though, plus he's getting a bit of a chop out from Lobb. I've got 17 trades before trading this week and am ranked 679 overall, just feel like I need a POD to keep climbing the rankings, rather than playing it safe with Goldy.

Rivo

Podcast Gold Jock, love the toilet humor from Higgo.

Help please! I have a couple of defenders and a mid to make full premo. 16 trades & $92k.

Option 1: J.Smith to Trengove;
Option 2: As above plus Keays to Stewart/other;
Option 3: Option 2 plus Gresham to Rockliff.

Safe option is 1, but Rocky very tempting.

Sarah

What are people's projected scores looking like through the byes?? Guessing 1800 will be par??

Rex

Mines 1800 not confident though. Have 20 players large chunk rookies tho

TRIGGER HAPPY

Its saying 2000 this week but i am rd 15 heavy.
Be wrapped with that but these projections can be fickle at best.

TRIGGER HAPPY

Hi Sarah,
I think you are spot on with 1800 a par score.
The way i see it
You will have 10-12 (more if u are lucky) premos
3-4 80 point players like tippa, adams, petrecca etc
And the rest rooks anywhere from 2-6 at up to 60 points.
So if you say avg 100 for the premos that's 1200
3 *80 = 240
3 * 60 =180
Add a capt and that gives you between 1700-1800
A couple of premos may smash the 100 barrier but some could spud up so 1800 should be around par if u can get 18 on the park.
IMHO.

Moustachio

Would say 1800+ yep… 14-15 premos at 100 av ea, 3-4 rookies at 70 av ea, add 125 for your C.

Blake

Is Toby Greene a keeper?

Tommo

Depends on trades. Does have ability to go big, but way too inconsistent for mine. You cant afford to be holding a player in finals that is highly prone to 60s.

TRIGGER HAPPY

Depends.
Do u like riding roller coasters?
If so strap yourself in.

Blueth

Yeah inconsistent but consistently plays well against poor teams.
If you want him, do it now
Next 3: Ess (A), Carl (H), Coll (H)

Danners

If you are low on trades, yes. If you have a few trades late in the season, might be wise to trade depending on how he goes

Leeds17

GWS play Saturday afternoon games through the SC finals might be a chance to loophole him.

Harry

'NicNat, Tippett ….. poor bloody Lukey Dahlhaus. Have your bye round plans all gone to shit now?'

Jock you couldn't have posted my situation better, although add Tippett to that list for the triple whammy for me this week. I had a brilliant plan. Was going to bring in Ward, Neale, Hanners and Lids and have a complete team with guns at M9 and F7 (ok that means Hall) but now that's gone to shit. Throw the plan out the window. Have to now trade Nic Nat and Tippett but think I have to keep Dahl. Probably going to lose all 3 byes- might win 1- and I'm 1st, 2nd and 1st in my 3 leagues. Devastating!

The Ranger

I know the feeling Harry, my bye plans are buggered.
Big rethink and not much time to do it

Rocksta

I'm hearing you Harry.
I also have Nic Nat and Dahl and the two of them going down has forced me to throw all my bye plans out the window.
Not willing to sideways trade both of them so I too will be keeping Dahl.

Rick

Am i crazy to think about downgrading hall before downgrading Kerridge. Both have the bye this week and I will only be playing the one that i dont trade out for one more week (Upgrading to Zerret after his bye).

Thoughts would be appreciated 🙂

Southern S

Not at all, I ditched Hall last week there was no reason to keep him.

Leeds17

Do you think he can average 105 for the season? if the answer is no, get rid.

One Touch Wonder

That is a SHARK MOVE

james

would love to get peoples opinions on the BONT averaging 103.3 with a 3/5 round avg of 117 and 115 and i feel with dahl going down he can get plenty of the pill

would love some opinions community

Leeds17

Gun playing very good footy at the moment, role not an issue, just whether he can keep it up.

Danners

Just a purple patch, better options that can keep it up

Micky

Community, plz help me out this week with trades, i got 13 trades left with 154k
def- shaw, simpson, laird, gibson, pittard, DBJ,(collins, lee)
mid- danger, pendles, priddis, parker, shiel, sam mitchell, liberatore, KEAYS,( davis, dunkley, macpherson)
ruck- gawn, NIC NAT(goertz)
fwd- martin, zorko, j kennedy, barlow, hall, montagna,(petracca, mcgovern)
ANY IDEAS COMMUNITY WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!

Dean

Micky I posted this earlier for you.

Round 13 trades
#1 Mcgovern to Austin +$176,000
#2 Davis to Trengove + $150,200
#3 Nic Nat to Goldy
Leaves you with $402,400

Round 14 trades
#1 Dunkley to Jack Steven or Trelore or any midfielder you wish, just select a player from these teams: Adelaide, Gold Coast, Richmond, Saints, Carlton, Collingwood – If you chose Steven this leaves you with $35,100
#2 Petracca to any rookie you wish, maybe consider Tom Phillips or James Rose however Rose will most likely have played his 3rd game by round 14 so forget him if he plays this week as his price will rise.
#3 DBJ to Docherty this will leave you with $7,000

THIS WILL LEAVE YOU WITH 7 TRADES LEFT

The idea in these bye rounds especially the first bye round such as round 13 is to trade in the non playing players such as Mcgovern & Davis to generate cash in order for you to become FULL PREMIUM as soon as possible. Don't stress out about trading players such as Davis & Patracca who are still generating cash, it does not matter at this point because you want the best possible side as soon as you can.
Leave DBJ on field in round 13 then get rid of him in round 14 because you want as many players playing on field as you can during the bye rounds because only your highest scoring 18 players points are calculated.

If you follow what I just wrote then you will be basically full premium before round 14 starts, you have a good side mate – Good Luck

Micky

Cheers mate thanks so much really helped me out a lot

Micky

mate i cant get austin for mcgovern, he is a defender, any other ideas for him?

Dean

Sorry mate I had it worked out in my head but wrote it wrong.

Round 13 trades
#1 Mcgovern to Rose
#2 Davis to Trengove
#3 Nic Nat to Goldy
Leaves you with $388,700

Round 14 trades
#1 Dunkley to Jack Steven or Trelore or any midfielder you wish, just select a player from these teams: Adelaide, Gold Coast, Richmond, Saints, Carlton, Collingwood – If you chose Steven this leaves you with $21,700
#2 Petracca to Tom Phillips
#3 DBJ to Docherty in calculations you fall $1,400 short, however my calculation are all based on Dunkley, Petracca & BDJ current prices so you realistically should still have made between $20,000 to $40,000 depending how well they play this week.
However rest assured by Round 14 you will have enough cash to do ALL the trades I mentioned above because Petracca alone is projected to rise $25,000 alone and Davis $10,000 so do these trades mate, your better off by bringing in Rose this week as he is on the bubble.
You can get to see if Phillips is selected to play in round 14, if he is then get him in mate.
THIS WILL LEAVE YOU WITH 7 TRADES LEFT – SORRY ABOUT THE STUFF UP WITH AUSTIN. HOPE THIS HELPS.

Fwd: Zorko and 1 more

Thinking Keays and Byrne for Trengove and Austin but I don't know who to get for NicNat
Gawn? Mumford?

Dean

You don't think Gawn is a given?

steve1

Anyone know if pendleberrys ankle injury is bad? i only just saw his name on the afl website injury list with TBC next to date of return.

Rocksta

Not sure,
But I think the Pies having the bye this week is a god send.

Hawks

Came back on the field after injuring the ankle, moved ok in the second half.

Moustachio

Did not roll it or anything, just got stepped on in back of ankle. Played out game okay and has 2 wks to recover. Should be fine

Southern S

Yep I'm still planning on trading him in after his bye.

The rock

Coniglio, Biney or Vince

Viney for me but I really like Coniglio

Help. NicNat has thrown a spanner in the works. 16 trades. $276,700

DOCH. SIMPSON. B.SMITH. Adams. WEITERING. Collins. (amt. B.Williams)

and either cant decide on the 3rd between
C: Menadue to K.Stewart or
D. Weitering to Trengove

Advice please on C or D or anything else please

Dean

Stewart shit house job security PASS

Moustachio

I'm generally a bit more partial to the C than the D, but that's just me

Mike

What's everyone's thoughts on Mathieson? I would've thought he'd have to be getting played for the rest of the year with the way Brisbane are traveling…

BKW

He'll play this week and is a better target than some of the other names mentioned in this thread

Derek

I agree. He should get named, if so he is straight in

JamiesNinjas13

Would it be too risky to bring in Jansen and Matho at the same time?

Banga

Par score this week?

Ethan

2400-2500

lachlanmcleanportfolio

Not sure if you're joking or not.. It's bye round buddy.

Billy

Doubt it!

Danners

I'll tell you next Sunday night

MaccasMarvels

Work on 100 per player ave, 1800 will be a good score.

Ethan

How much cash does Christian Petracca have to make?

Rocksta

He has a BE of 21, so should really make at least another $50K over rd 13 and 15. That said, he's got a bye next week, so if you intend to trade him, next week is probably the go. He should make another 20-25K this week.

Danners

About $30k

Leeds17

pretty tempted to keep him as bench cover & Kerridge for that matter.

Steeeve

At this stage I plan to keep Petracca. Not Kerridge though.

Southern S

50-100k

Danners

Great stuff podcast fellas! Not sure whether it is me, but it seems this year there has been a damn lot of injuries this season compared to other seasons

Derek

Seems like we say that every year. Still half season to go.

Chevy

Ok team,
Here is my Def line up.
Shaw, Simpson, bartel, Gibson, plus 2 onfield Rookies. Will be bringing in laird, already have Simpson, now would it be silly bringing in docherty? Personally I think it's a worthwhile move.
Thoughts…

Hawks

The only reason you don't want too many players from one team is because of the bye rounds, after this week there's no issue with having too many Carlton defenders.

That said, Docherty is high priced, and should have been picked-up earlier, or perhaps later if he drops in price, guys like Rance might be better value.

Chevy

I would be acquiring docherty post his bye round

Leeds17

Carltons draw gets harder for the next few weeks 5 of the top 8 teams in the next 6 games, could mean he scores even better with more ball in defence doesnt usually work that way though.

smart as s

doc is a must have

CaPtKaOs

I've had simpson and docherty all year. Really happy with both of them. Early in the season I had Weitering as well. As long as you can field enough players durimg the Carlton bye I think it is fine.

The Ranger

I'd love to bring him in Chevy but I can't pay that price.
I'll be getting Rance first and then hoping to pick him up later after a price drop.

Derek

I have to admit I didn't think Doc would go this well. Every week I keep thinking the real Carlton will turn up and spud. He is close to a must have, but expensive.

Southern S

Wouldn't matter if Carlton lost Doch and Simpson still score well, this whole thing of them not performing due to them having tough games is rubbish.

Southern S

Doch averaging 115 in losses this year*

Average for the season is 110

Derek

in years gone bye i have always thought that getting defenders from the weaker teams is good as they see plenty of the ball

breakevens

Thoughts community
Ins: Rose, Goldstein, Trengove
Outs: Dalhaus, Nic Nat, Davis
Leaves me with 430k in the bank
100k spent on upgrading AMT to Rance after his bye
200k spent on upgrading Adams to Docherty after his bye
Then downgrade from Keays to rookie
Giving me cash to go Petracca to Deledio/Leigh leaving me with a full premo side of
Def: Shaw, Docherty, Simpson, Bartel, Rance, Laird (Tucker, Collins)
Mid: Danger, Ward, Parker, Ablett, Libba, Priddis, Gray, Rockliff (Trengove, Rookie for Keays, Dunkley)
Ruck: Gawn, Goldstein (Cox)
Forward: Dustin, Zach Merrett, Deledio/Leigh, Wells, Wingard, Hall (if playing) (Rose, Grimley)

Rocksta

Just did my trades. The injuries to Nic Nat and Dahl have completely stuffed up my bye situation. I cannot bring myself to trade Nic Nat to anyone other than Goldy ( I have Gawn already), and must do it this week to field 18 players ( even though Goldy has a BE of 150+). I also need to trade Davis to field 18, but can only see Trengove as a viable rookie to bring in.
I'll have 18 next week if Hall gets a guernsey, but only 16 for Rd 15. My last intended upgrade wont improve that situation either ( Wagner to Simpson/Docherty).
This game really does your head in!

darren

Im in a similar situation, except can field 18 this week with lots of rubbish rookies, I'm hoping naismith with be named, trade nicnat to him along with some other war chest bolstering moves then bang, bang, bang upgrade my last 3 rookies next week to premo then rd 15 maybe one more rookie out, then finally after his bye bring in Goldy, he messes up everything if i bring him in this week, so hoping he will choke out a few 80's and be ripe for the picking post bye and then i don't have to compromise my structures. Im tempted by jacobs but i don't understand why he is scoring worse then last yr and rd 15 rucks just don't suit my structure as i have 3 cats and 3 gws players already.

The Ranger

Same here Rocksta. Hall not playing and Adams dropping out is a worry too.
I was supposed to be doing a triple downgrade but I can't make that work now. I've been tossing around all sorts of ideas, I'm even considering a donut this week so that I can get Goldstein when his price drops a bit.
Yuk.

Southern S

Not worth copping a donut to save 20k, if you need Goldy just get him in. For all you know he could hit his 160 BE anyway.

The Ranger

Its not just a one week plan tho, I'm looking ahead at my trades after that and that 20K could be the difference between me being able to get Pendles or not being able to get Pendles. And the point difference that leads on from there may make it worth copping a donut now while most teams will be scoring pretty low anyways.
I'm not sold on the idea believe me, it's just one of many frantic options I'm considering!
