Published by Patch on

PatchCoachKingsLogoCommunity, I have a confession to make.

We’re out a little bit late this week, and I’ve told Jock it was because work kept me back late last night and it knocked me out of whack.

I’ve always found the best lies are wrapped in a slither of truth. I am indeed out of whack, but work did not keep me.

No, I’m late this week because I looked at the team selections this morning and cried.

I lay in the foetal position and caused a flood far greater than the dreary skies that have lashed this damp, muddy country could ever muster.

I’ve had master tutelage. I’ve learnt from the best. Jock took me under his wing and showed me the Ways of Fantasy Sport.

Crouching has taken me to the jungles of South-East Asia and pushed me to my physical limit. He bestowed on me the knowledge of the fly-kick.

Higgo taught me mathematics behind the comprehension of mortal minds – in fact, years before the Higgs-Boson or ‘God’ particle was announced as an integral part of all matter, our dear friend Peter told me of the Higginbotham Particle, or the “Gaz” particle, which showed Gary Ablett Jnr makes up every successful supercoach side.

After all this, I opened my side this morning to find sixteen. bloody. players.


I promptly took a very long and very hot shower.


I am ashamed.



Now is not the time for self-pity. Lockout has begun, which means trades cannot be reversed. For the next three weeks, we will be subject to locking our trades in before we know the teams – or we trade around this annoying spectacle that is Thursday night football.

Although, the brilliant thing that comes with Thursday football is the Jock Reynolds crack commentary team. They were a huge selection for our lives this week, and for the quarter I was able to stream at work it was 100% top notch.

Onto team selections – Daniel Wells missed last night’s match with a dodgy calf. Hopefully after the bye next week he’ll be a-ok for the rest of the reason. Hopefully.

The BIG news this week is Dayne Zorko is missing from Brisbane’s lineup for personal reasons, which is a huge blow to them, and to us in the toughest week of the year. Cyril Rioli is also attending a funeral up north, and will miss this week’s game.

Jacob Hopper is OUT, being managed. From what, who knows. Sam Reid has also been dropped for those looking for a rookie this week.

For those poor sods still with Suns rebounder Kade Kolodjashnij, he’s going to miss this week with concussion, possibly from ramming his head against the wall in order to rediscover his form.

Ben Crocker, Corey Ellis and Daniel Rioli are all out for a variety of reasons – Rioli joining cousin Cyril up north – and anyone who picked up Daniel Gorringe will have to find a way to cope with his hip injury as he will miss this week.

Gold Coast dynamo Aaron Hall returns after running rampant in the NEAFL. Let’s hope Rocket puts him back in the midfield against the Hawks.

Luke Hodge has been selected for the Hawks this week, which hopefully will not come at the expense of rookie Kade Stewart. I’d think he’d be reasonably safe, but you never know with the Hawks.

Those still holding Connor Spudadue Menadue rejoice, for he will be blessing us with another 30 this week as Richmond have – for some unfathomable reason – selected him again. Which would be great news for me if I hadn’t traded him out at lunchtime yesterday. WHO’S THE POTATO NOW, PATCH?

(Speaking of me being a potato, I missed Rhys Mathieson‘s return to the Lions side. He’s been picked! Cheers to Reece for pointing that one out for me, as I the names were a bit blurry through the tears.)



Patch’s helpful visual guide to surviving this week:


Whatever I write here would be far surpassed by Lekdog’s magnificent, beautiful thing of a cheat sheet. Go look at it.

That’s not a suggestion. If you’ve kept scrolling and haven’t looked at this week, move your mouse back up and click on the hyperlink.

Do it.

I’m not going to tell you again.



Eddie Murphys

-31 – Sam J. Reid (DROPPED)
-24 – Kade Stewart
-22 – Jack Trengove
-18 – Toby Nankervis
-16 – Aliir Aliir
1 – Logan Austin
4 – Bailey Williams
13 – Tom Ruggles
24 – Jayden Short

Dan Aykroyds

199 – Bryce Gibbs
168 – Todd Goldstein
168 – Adam Treloar
160 – Lachie Neale
160 – Scott Lycett
154 – Dylan Shiel
148 – Callan Ward
142 – Heath Shaw
137 – Scott Pendlebury


To anyone who put the VC on Goldy last night – yeah nah let’s not take the 99.

Let’s put the C on Paddy Dangerfield. He’s averaging 147.5 over his past five and a MAMMOTH 175.3 over his last three. Ca-ching.

For those still with the VC to slap around, I’d have a gander at Scotty Pendlebury tonight or, if you’re feeling really dicey, Michael Barlow, who is averaging 125 over his last three.

I would avoid Dustin Martin, as he’ll get the Mitch Robinson tag this week.


Just as the tears have dried I feel them coming on again… if Dusty has a shocker I might not be seen for a week. I brought him in this week and didn’t even think about the Robbo tag. BREAK IT SON. If not for your sake, for mine.

I know you’re reading, Dusty. I believe in you, son.

And community, I believe in you. Do me bloody proud this week. Hold your heads higher than mine.

We will survive.

Sana · 24/06/2016 at 14:10

I only have 14 on field after the news on Hopper… Should I axe him or just accept my team is stuffed this week? Still have 2 trades for the week and 160k.

    Patch · 24/06/2016 at 14:14

    Depends on the rest of your side, Sana, but if you're down to 14 you almost might as well cop the loss in your league and move on to next week

    If you're focusing on rank, you'll need to paint the fence

    Redgumwon · 24/06/2016 at 14:27

    You could cash in with Hopper and trade in Mathieson if you don't already have him

reece · 24/06/2016 at 14:17


    Patch · 24/06/2016 at 14:23

    Cheers Reece, missed him through the tears mate. Will chuck him in now!

Sozza · 24/06/2016 at 14:18

Is it worth considering Eric Hipwood (DEF/FWD) as a downgrade target, after only 1 game?

    Patch · 24/06/2016 at 14:22

    I wouldn't unless you desperately need him. He's a key position player and will be inconsistent, and likely dropped at some stage. I'd have another look if you could

Jay · 24/06/2016 at 14:18

I love the quantum physics reference, nice work Patch! I'll always think of it as the 'Higgos-Boson Particle' from now on.

Chevy · 24/06/2016 at 14:20

OMG!!! I brought sj Reid in to my team as he was playing no he isnto WTF!!!!

    I N Pieman · 24/06/2016 at 14:46

    And you can't reverse trades either dude. Disaster. 7k got stitched up

    Lachy · 24/06/2016 at 17:54

    same here, dont stress

jordanandeddie · 24/06/2016 at 14:21

The fact that I still have Spudadue in my team really speaks for how bad a year I'm having…
I appreciate that Jock is purposefully in the trenches with us.

    Patch · 24/06/2016 at 14:27

    I've spent the last two months wishing I didn't have him, and the second I get rid of him I realise I need him. Enough to drive you mad!

      smote · 24/06/2016 at 19:27

      Maybe with Dusty copping a hard tag, Menadue will ton up.

    Derek · 24/06/2016 at 15:46

    I love that about Jock, purposefully scoring poorly so he knows what it is like to be struggling at SC. he is like the team riders in the Tour de france, who go back and stay with the fallen leaders and nurse them back to the pelleton, sacrificing themselves for the good of the team leader and ultimately the team.

    medadsson · 24/06/2016 at 23:05

    Agreed, having my worst year ever. Feel like a spud until I remember the father of fantasy is in the trenches with us 🙂

    Irrelevant · 25/06/2016 at 18:35

    Sorry to have Menadue now?

Gavin · 24/06/2016 at 14:29

Martin or Lids in this week?


    Gus · 24/06/2016 at 14:38


    Patch · 24/06/2016 at 16:31


Gus · 24/06/2016 at 14:29

Docherty or Simpson? Will Tom Phillips (every average in 1st game missed target many times) be a JS for rest of the season? Sneaking suspicion he may well be!

    Patch · 24/06/2016 at 16:31

    Docherty. Not sold on Phillips, give him another week before looking to bring him in

      Gus · 25/06/2016 at 08:55

      Yep, exactly what I'll be doing

Ciaran · 24/06/2016 at 14:31

Down to 16, as well as my opponent in the cash league on 16.

The issue I have is my backline : Shaw, Gibbo, Rich, Collins, Ruggles, Lee (Boyd, Tippa)
I have 2 trades remaining and have 500k in the bank to upgrade (16 playing this week, 16 or 17 next week). Do I upgrade tippa to Docherty or Simmo this week OR wait until next week, use Tippa as backline cover and upgrade Ruggles next week.

Cheers guys

    Patch · 24/06/2016 at 16:32

    I'm keeping Tippa myself but no reason for you to if you want to upgrade him. I'd go up to Docherty this week Ciaran!

Jonathan Camac · 24/06/2016 at 14:33

Brilliant work Patch. Best fantasy football article on the market.

Slightly unrelated, but Jock and co, I like this new 'play from home' CoachKings thinga-ma-jig. Significant, as Higgo would say. Some of us cant make it to such venues each week, or just cant be bothered. But if you had a play from home set-up for at least 2 games a round, I'd be all over it (and I reckon others would too).

Thoughts community?

    Starkingdom · 24/06/2016 at 15:24


    Derek · 24/06/2016 at 15:42

    Good idea, but what does Jock and his investors get out of it if we are playing it at home and not going to the pub to drink beer.

    I would imagine the business model involves the clubs and pubs paying for the service in consideration for people coming and buying beer (and chips), if there was other ways for us to play it, the clubs & pubs may not want to support it.

    Without CoachKings, we might not have Jock back with us. (we all still remember that awful day about this time last year – the time that we don't want to talk about when we thought we had lost Jock forever)

    I like how we all get a bit of a look at it and if we like it we can go and find a place that is serving it.

    my nearest location is 374.2km away. oh well.

      Starkingdom · 24/06/2016 at 15:53

      Pay to play? Not much just enough to generate interest. Maybe a jackpot like gallops – quaddie. Potential huge jackpots if all SuperCoach players get on board.

      wombatsfc · 24/06/2016 at 16:21

      Advertising, selling subscriber lists to a multitude of businesses including online gambling companies. Plenty of ways to make cash from providing things that people want.

      Turtlecoach · 24/06/2016 at 18:35

      374.2k's, maybe just go every second week then Derek 🙂

    Patch · 24/06/2016 at 16:39

    Means a lot mate <3

    I'm not able to talk for anyone on the CoachKings play from home because I simply don't know what's needed, but the idea is based around getting bums in pubs to play.

    There's nothing more we want than everyone playing, but we do need bums in pubs to keep the thing rolling along

      Starkingdom · 24/06/2016 at 16:40

      good luck with that

      Jonathan Camac · 25/06/2016 at 00:49

      Fair call, I understand. Great work regardless fellas!

Andrew · 24/06/2016 at 14:34

Pendles Into Danger? or
Danger into Ablett?

    Ron · 24/06/2016 at 14:35

    I'm going Barlow in Danger – I think Barlow will score 150+ this week. Pies no good at tagging

      I N Pieman · 24/06/2016 at 14:50

      Barlow is the tagger. I have no problem with it. Averaging 126 since he started tagging

      Clarky99 · 24/06/2016 at 16:21

      Levi Greenwood is a fairly good tagger. He ain't no Crowley but he will tag either Barlow or Neale for sure.

      Neverweaken · 24/06/2016 at 17:36

      Me too

    brightsidefx · 24/06/2016 at 14:44

    I'm going Paddy into Gaz, with the assumption I probably won't need to use Gaz.

    Stevo · 24/06/2016 at 15:07

    Danger in to Ablett

    Clarky99 · 24/06/2016 at 16:22

    Pendles into Danger. Not sure how Ablett will go against the Hawks, the rest of his team will be uncompetitive, so may just find it hard to get the pill.

      Starkingdom · 24/06/2016 at 16:31

      ha ha good one

    wombatsfc · 24/06/2016 at 16:25

    Hard pick Andrew Pendle will likely get the Barlow shadow so Bucks might sit him at half back for a couple of quarters and let treloar and sidey go nuts .
    I like Danger into Gaz and might do the same

    Patch · 24/06/2016 at 16:33

    Either way I think you'll end with Danger's score, but would take Pendles over Gaz, who's playing the Hawks

      Daz · 24/06/2016 at 16:52

      Shaw to Danger

Tom · 24/06/2016 at 14:36

Best less then $117,300 option this week?

    Kev · 24/06/2016 at 15:04

    Matheison, Phillips

    CaPtKaOs · 24/06/2016 at 15:12

    If it has to be "less than" 117,300, Joyce if he makes the final 22.

    wombatsfc · 24/06/2016 at 16:27

    Joyce even if he doesn't make the final 22 you're obviously needing the downgrade cash more than the player

    Patch · 24/06/2016 at 16:39

    Can look at non-playing DPPs if you've got the cover mate.

      Tom · 25/06/2016 at 08:54

      Thanks all – yep going Joyce this week, Phillips next as both on the bubble!

oliver · 24/06/2016 at 14:56

Thoughts on holding or downgrading Hewett? Was thinking it might be worth riding it out until that 11 that he scored was out of his rolling average and he makes up the lost money, even though he will lose cash again next week. Have 19 playing this week but only 70k in the kitty, so not much coin for upgrades. Thinking of holding at this stage.

    Patch · 24/06/2016 at 16:40

    I like that thinking, Ollie!

Grahame Lebroy · 24/06/2016 at 14:58

Cruel outs Patch, cruel indeed. A big test of SC Character this weekend, I have no doubt whatsoever you will bounce back stronger whilst gaining a SC God like wisdom that will hold u in good stead for years to come. Chin up

    Patch · 24/06/2016 at 16:41

    Cheers Grahame. I've had a long hard think about it and am getting back on my feet mate. Makes it a truckload easier having blokes like you lend support. I love you mate.

have 220k left and 13 trades
Have done Dunkley to Sloane so far

thanks everyone

    wombatsfc · 24/06/2016 at 16:31

    Trade ward to Hannerberry Hall to Rioliand Bartel to Johannisen.
    That way you'll only have 18 onfield like everybody else ya lucky mongrel

      Mitch · 24/06/2016 at 16:52

      Haha only fielded 17 in first week of byes though!

    Patch · 24/06/2016 at 16:42

    Sloane in has paid off! Could go Petracca to Montagna, or Byrne-Jones to Rance (which I like more).

      Mitch · 24/06/2016 at 16:51

      Thought of keeping petracca for a couple more. amt/adams worth moving on for lids or Montagna

        Mitch · 24/06/2016 at 16:51


josh · 24/06/2016 at 15:05

so with the news that zorko is out i still have 7 playing forwards that i cant swing..
i have 19 on the pitch that are scoring but my question i dont get in the bye rounds
i have phillips (collinwgood) and menadue on the bench, one of which i will replace for zorko.
if i put the emergency on phillips tonight, and he scores well if i keep zorko on the pitch will phillips replace zorkos 0 with his score..
i was going to do this so that if he spuds it up real bad then i can still put menadue on the pitch..

    Derek · 24/06/2016 at 15:26

    yes, normal E rules will apply

    Juzzy · 24/06/2016 at 15:29

    That's spot on.
    If Phillips scores 40 it may be a difficult decision though …

Stevo · 24/06/2016 at 15:05

Sidebottom worth a punt in midfield as a Libba replacement?

    josh · 24/06/2016 at 15:10

    yes. was considering sloane/sidebottom for this weeks upgrade.
    ended up going sloane which i was happy about but i rate sidebottom, proven premium

      Stevo · 24/06/2016 at 16:03

      Cheers Josh!

    Patch · 24/06/2016 at 16:43

    Wouldn't have much of a problem with the Sidebum, Stevo!

tom · 24/06/2016 at 15:06

Should I trade Hopper to Phillips or Mathieson to field 18 players or hold?

    josh · 24/06/2016 at 15:11

    depends what you're going for in overall scheme i guess.. i always play for overall rank regardless of how close i am..
    so i traded hopper this week.. seeing as he is out this week and bye next week.. i bought in phillips but if i were you id get mathieson in

Westy · 24/06/2016 at 15:09

Don't like Thursday night or Monday night footy. Why can't they just leave it on the weekend (Friday night to Sunday afternoon) and be done with it. (Long weekends are different, but think of the players as well as the public.)
If they want to emulate NRL, then fine, but NRL only get between 10K and 20K turning up to most of their games.

CaPtKaOs · 24/06/2016 at 15:19

When is the final 22 named for Sundays game?

    Gavin · 24/06/2016 at 15:29

    Think 5

Juzzy · 24/06/2016 at 15:21

Great article Patch.
You have to laugh at the "Menadue Situation".
Nine shocking games straight and he wasn't dropped. Hardwick must love the kid.
I believe this is the universe balancing things out.
It is the absolute antithesis of the Longmire, Tom Mitchell situation of a couple of years back.
If Mitchell had played a Menadue-esque game that year he could still be playing in the Neafl today.

    Patch · 24/06/2016 at 16:56

    Hahaha absolutely true, mate!

Nicholas · 24/06/2016 at 15:27

Looking for some advice on trades, but I think Wines out is the only way to avoid a donut this week. Was so close to going Wines to Sloane but did not pull the trigger and now am regretting.
Any advice is appreciated

    Gherkin · 24/06/2016 at 16:14

    I'm doing the same Tommo. Did that last week and was foolish enough to take Rocky's 130. Sounded like a good idea until Danger punched out a lazy 100 to half time.

    Patch · 24/06/2016 at 16:58

    Nice mate, Rocky slipped my mind

Shake n bake · 24/06/2016 at 15:35

Was goin to bring in rance didn't really want to spend so much
on Docherty. I know I'm thinking far ahead but tigers play Syd
last game blues play Ess. Should I just spend the extra coin?

    Starkingdom · 24/06/2016 at 15:39

    I had same thoughts yesterday, I went Doch for higher ceiling and plays (named) on wing which gives him freedom to roam while Rance is one dimension player, but still a v good choice. I believe Doch will perform against any opposition, potential GUN.

    Patch · 24/06/2016 at 16:59

    Docherty will outscore Rance for the rest of the year, SnB. Would go the Doc

    The Ranger · 24/06/2016 at 18:56

    I had Doc locked in all week until about 4pm yesterday when I changed it to Rance.
    I need every bit of cash I can get in order to get to a proper full premium team and have decent bench cover so I just can't justify the spend.
    Hopefully the money I have saved will be spent in such a way as to make up the possible points difference.

Clarky99 · 24/06/2016 at 15:42

Which 2 to pick onfield/loophole out of Phillips, Jansen and Davis?

min0008 · 24/06/2016 at 15:42

Pendlebury into Danger or Dangerfield into Gaz?

    JDP · 24/06/2016 at 15:56

    I like Danger into Gaz – the little man is in good form

Adam Saad out of the GCS squad with hammy tightness.

Have vc on Sloane should I be nervous Danger plays saints
at Etihad? & Richo said he won't be tagged?

    Fotz · 24/06/2016 at 16:25

    145 is normally a score you'd like to take. Nothing wrong with 290. Every chance Danger scores 160+ so just depends on how lucky you feel. Gotta risk it to get the biscuit, but 290 is still mighty fine.

    Patch · 24/06/2016 at 17:00

    I'd take a 145 personally mate. Even with Danger on fire

    Uidiot · 24/06/2016 at 17:07

    I would go Merrett if you can hold off till next week. This kid is a machine.

    Patch · 24/06/2016 at 17:01

    Mate you know where I lie on this. Merrett all the way for me

      The Beard · 24/06/2016 at 18:53

      Cheers Patch.

HELP · 24/06/2016 at 16:15

Bringing in Docherty
Upgrade Adams or Mc- Tip

    Patch · 24/06/2016 at 17:00

    Adams for mine

      HELP · 24/06/2016 at 17:16

      Thanks Patch

patricmassey · 24/06/2016 at 16:32

only fielding 15 cause of wells and zorko, actually want to kms. plus and awful thursday night by the likes of brodie smith and talia

Mac · 24/06/2016 at 16:40

How many players are the community fielding? Also what do to with Hopper? Time to cash in?

    Dont Blush Babbie · 24/06/2016 at 16:56

    I'm planning to go Hopper to Phillips next week, Dunkley to Mathieson this week

    Patch · 24/06/2016 at 17:13

    Down to 15 now, Mac. Truly dark times.

      Mac · 24/06/2016 at 17:16

      Patch what should I do with Hopper?

    Derek · 24/06/2016 at 17:14

    Stewart not named, but Joyce and Menadue are, i will have 19 onfield.

    That will include plenty of rookies who usually play poor when i have them onfield – Collins, Menadue, Joyce, Gresham Mcgovern (done good) and BSmith

    John · 25/06/2016 at 01:16

    19 now Zorko is out… Assuming no other late outs.

Pauly Walnuts · 24/06/2016 at 16:41

Is Barlow in our final 8,also would Libba be the last upgrade or should I be keeping him at M8 ?

    Southern S · 24/06/2016 at 17:48

    I won't be trading Barlow out that is for sure, held him all year and now reaping the rewards.

    Top 8 who knows, not in total but probably average well from here on out and be top 6.

    You could trade Libbe, or you could keep him at M8, it really depends on how good your other lines are and your total team value situation.

Starkingdom · 24/06/2016 at 16:57

Danger obvious VC
Gaz for C because.. played magpies x 13 avg. 133
average at AU 138, and…. Hall is back, should create more opportunities.
yes? or Shaw VC into Danger C

Chicken Dinner · 24/06/2016 at 17:02

Looks like stewart is out 🙁 sad times

    Jay · 24/06/2016 at 17:06


    Derek · 24/06/2016 at 17:07

    i wanted at least one more game out of him. i'm not going to stuff around, he will be traded now.

      Southern S · 24/06/2016 at 17:40

      What was the point of getting him in then? We all knew he would most likely get dumped.

        Mr Sarcasm · 24/06/2016 at 17:46

        What a surprise. I thought he was a permanent replacement for Hodge.

        Derek · 24/06/2016 at 18:22

        thats what i mean, we knew he would get dumped, i was hoping it would be after this week. oh well, i'm not going to hold onto him, prefer to get maitherson in who is playing and might make a bit of cash. stewart won't.

          Steeeve · 24/06/2016 at 18:33

          I'd rather save the trade

          Nicholas · 24/06/2016 at 18:52

          How many trades you got Derek? Brand was dropped a while back and he is playing again. Stewart will make cash just not right now so I will hold, also I do not have the luxury due to my trades

            Derek · 24/06/2016 at 23:27

            I got 11 after this week

Nervous Coach · 24/06/2016 at 17:04

Patch – awesome as ever. Thanks for the visual guide and Simpsons reference. Has helped turned the tears into tears of laughter.
In a similar foetal position – 16 players. Traded DBJ for Laird, however, has not left me enough to upgrade AMT or Adams.

Options :
1) Hewett to Maitheson/Phillips (who has the better job security and scoring potential) and use the cash to upgrade AMT or Adams to Lids or N Riewoldt. Leaves me with 13 trades but 18 on the field.
2) Hewett to Maitheison, upgrade next week and cop two donuts.


    Nervous Coach · 24/06/2016 at 19:00

    Thanks Patch. Was leaning towards Mathieson only because he is on the bubble but he might be the first to lose his spot when Zorko returns. Phillips may be the better option.

Sully321 · 24/06/2016 at 17:05

Who are the downgrade options this week?

    Patch · 24/06/2016 at 17:16

    Tom Phillips the obvious one

Gavin · 24/06/2016 at 17:07

What are the communities thoughts on Joyce, on the bubble and wait to see if Phillips gets named next round?

    Patch · 24/06/2016 at 17:21

    Not sold on Joyce myself, Gav. Would go Phillips myself

      Gavin · 24/06/2016 at 17:25


    Steeeve · 24/06/2016 at 18:40

    I'll pick Phillips up even if he's not named next week, need the dpp swing.

Shake n bake · 24/06/2016 at 17:08

Stewart dropped

Patch · 24/06/2016 at 17:16

No worries mate! Glad to hear I brought some smiles amongst the pain.

I like option one – would go Tom Phillips personally and then Adams to Lids.

Nicholas · 24/06/2016 at 17:30

Just realised Ollie Wines to Docherty bring Rich into the centre is my way to avoid both my donuts as this allows me to use one of my bench rookies in defence onfield. Then ben ken to lids and nic nat to martin. Wondering what you think about these trades. I will be left with a tonne of cash after these trades also which is nice. I think it is worth it to save myself from two donuts just wondering on your thoughts.

    Nicholas · 24/06/2016 at 17:31

    Actually dw this only saves me one donut thinking I will just accept my crappy score

      johnno2908 · 24/06/2016 at 18:42

      I realised the same with Libba out this week and keeping DBJ and putting Rich in the middle. Was tossing up between 18 and 19 on field and to keep libba. Now Stewart out as well, will have to do go Libba out. Planned like crazy for the byes and then this shit happens.

        Nicholas · 24/06/2016 at 18:50

        Do you think it is worth it even though it only gets rid of 1 donut, I will still be left with another donut and no way to get rid of it as I do not want to get Pendles at his price and no other good options from last round apart from Sloane

HOLLA · 24/06/2016 at 17:40

Did anyou have th vc on sloane last night and are you take the double points for a 290?

    HOLLA · 24/06/2016 at 17:42

    Probably should have proof read that sentence.

    Patch · 24/06/2016 at 17:44

    Would take Sloane's score Holla

Chubby McChubby · 24/06/2016 at 18:19

Taylor Adams to Lachie Neale or wait until next week given BE of 159?

    Chubby McChubby · 24/06/2016 at 18:20

    Or is there any other mids I should consider. Last spot will be zaharakis to hanners

      Jess_coach · 24/06/2016 at 18:29

      Without seeing your team, + 1 for Neale.

      Wouldn't mind paying abit more for a keeper

        Chubby McChubby · 24/06/2016 at 18:56

        +1 = another week?

Jess_coach · 24/06/2016 at 18:31

Cox is in! I love cox!!!!

    Mac · 24/06/2016 at 18:55

    Especially 6'11 Cox 😉

      Gavin · 24/06/2016 at 19:05

      I'm sure Cox loves you to, especially when you kiss him!

        Jess_coach · 24/06/2016 at 19:33

        Lol im just happy he's playing

          Gavin · 24/06/2016 at 21:31

          I'm sure he's happy you are playing with him!

    Southern S · 24/06/2016 at 20:37


      Davonaise · 24/06/2016 at 20:45

      Oh boy….

        50_Shades · 24/06/2016 at 21:33

        I wanna play….

        I'm disappointed because I thought the favorites were Ryder … And … Swallow 🙂 (Too much?)

          Gavin · 24/06/2016 at 23:38

          You can still play Cox and Swallow! Nothing wrong with that!

Steeeve · 24/06/2016 at 18:39

MacPherson to Mathieson
Stewart to Mathieson
Just hold

Shake n bake · 24/06/2016 at 18:39

Am goin to get 1 of these players in Docherty or Deledio this week who should I take?

    Gavin · 24/06/2016 at 18:53


      Gus · 24/06/2016 at 14:33

      Thanks – thought same thing. How about Phillips?

        Gavin · 24/06/2016 at 14:42

        Not sure to tell you the truth?

          Gus · 24/06/2016 at 14:43

          yeah likewise, will be a punt!

johnno2908 · 24/06/2016 at 18:44

I look at all other matchups in my leagues and there is carnage eveywhere…. Then I look at my opponents. Ill be stuffed, in every one of my 5 leagues, every opponent has at least 18 on ground. Disheartening.

johnno2908 · 24/06/2016 at 18:46

Stewart or Hopper out? Either one has been a wasted trade

    Mac · 24/06/2016 at 18:55

    Hopper, make more cash

tom · 24/06/2016 at 18:56

Barlow, Pendles or Shaw as VC?

Neverweaken · 24/06/2016 at 19:03

Nearly jumped on Tarrant in Defence. And Goldie still not worth the dollars. Hampson v Martin for ruck spot

    Southern S · 24/06/2016 at 20:35

    Tarrant was a spud last night wasn't he? That's why you don't lock in key position players unless very proven.

FlyingHawkAssassin · 24/06/2016 at 19:04

Need some help finding some good trades this week BOLD is players who are not playing this week.
Laird, Smith, Rich, Shaw, Bartel, AMT, Collins, Brand
Cox, Nic Nat, GAWN
10 trades and 470k in the bank.
Good luck with the carnage this week!

Robbo · 24/06/2016 at 19:11

Quick!!! Who to upgrade first out of Tucker and Collins???

Connor · 24/06/2016 at 19:12

A. Rance
J. Bartel

I really need help on this one as I am unsure who to go with. Looking at Geelong's last 4 games – that is when Bartel will likely be rested (it is finals time also) so I am unsure what to do.


    Robbo · 24/06/2016 at 19:17

    Bartel for sure!

    Nicholas · 24/06/2016 at 19:23

    I have Barlow and have been happy with his form. Depends whether you think Bartel will be rested

Grantc · 24/06/2016 at 19:18

Collins or Tucker on the field?

    Dont Blush Babbie · 24/06/2016 at 20:17

    Hope you went Collins ?

      Grantc · 24/06/2016 at 21:54

      Yes I did changed it in the last 3 min, makes up for Pendles who I brought in.

hedski · 24/06/2016 at 20:28

So I'm guessing you've got the E on S.Col like me?
Dont think you'll get his score.
My question is if I pull Ruggles off (ha ha) and put Suckling on will the emergency count?
Any help community I'm normally pretty au fait with these things but this is a doozy.

    Southern S · 24/06/2016 at 20:32

    Yep you can do that

      hedski · 24/06/2016 at 20:40

      Cheers Southern.
      Pity I didn't play Collins over Shit Smith.

    FootyFanatic · 24/06/2016 at 20:41

    Yea I have Collins on the bench, looks like I will have to loophole his score

Dont Blush Babbie · 24/06/2016 at 20:31

Pendles – Whats going on ? I bought you in 2 minutes before the game started ?

    Southern S · 24/06/2016 at 20:43

    Same. Oh well he'll do alright surely.

      Davonaise · 24/06/2016 at 21:19

      Heard someone on fanfooty chat saying he is carrying an injury and had been in fwd pocket nearly whole of 2nd quarter

        Hubba · 25/06/2016 at 08:47

        Has the flu

          Moustachio · 25/06/2016 at 10:55

          Ahhh good intel. I thought maybe it was a return to bucks start from start of season D=

            Moustachio · 25/06/2016 at 10:56


        Hoot · 25/06/2016 at 10:37

        yup… sick

Boltons blues · 24/06/2016 at 20:34

What would Collins need to score to be considered to loophole him into my defence? I have him on the bench as an E but my defence is shaw, doch, Simpson, Bartel, rance, laird (played already)

    Southern S · 24/06/2016 at 20:42

    Probably 90? I'd consider benching Rance going by the stats but go with your gut looking at the matches being played

      50_Shades · 24/06/2016 at 22:06

      I just did this

    hedski · 24/06/2016 at 20:43

    Thats a good def BB. 100+ for who tho?
    Bartel and Rance could both go big other 3 are solid.
    Good problem to have.
    I'll be waitin on his score to assess Ruggles.

      Davonaise · 24/06/2016 at 21:01

      I reckon if Collins goes 90+ which looks to be the case it is Rance for mine that most likely score less against the deplorable lions who won't get it to Rances half enough

        hedski · 24/06/2016 at 21:24

        Or he will take 83 intercept marks as they bomb away and score 234.

          Southern S · 24/06/2016 at 21:24


    Gherkin · 24/06/2016 at 21:03

    I've got the same backline this week BB, and the same problem! Collins could get a 120, maybe bench Rance? Maybe Bartel? Good problem to have I guess.

    Derek · 24/06/2016 at 21:13

    You could trade in Joyce or Hibberd into midfield and swing Bartel to mids. Always handy to have DPP exactly for this

      hedski · 24/06/2016 at 21:24

      Very nice derek

        Derek · 24/06/2016 at 22:01

        Joyce is playing and Norf played.

      smart as s · 24/06/2016 at 23:55

      get aaron francis in

    Boltons blues · 24/06/2016 at 22:22

    Done 3 upgrades this week (Bartel was one) so can't do another trade, rance to the bench it looks like

Davonaise · 24/06/2016 at 20:44

Nah Dusty has reached a new level for mine, tank is huge this year

    Southern S · 24/06/2016 at 20:59

    Agreed I locked him in this week 😉 Whats this comment in relation to though anyway?

      Davonaise · 24/06/2016 at 21:02

      To Patch lol I just noticed too I did not reference anything 🙁

        Davonaise · 24/06/2016 at 21:04

        I VC him this week btw reckon he can go large

Davonaise · 24/06/2016 at 21:10

just noticed Z.Dawson on 43 half time lol

    Davonaise · 24/06/2016 at 21:14

    Could he beat his 96 back in round 3 2011?

      Grahame Lebroy · 24/06/2016 at 21:21

      I am 1 away from a full premo DEF, Zac may be the final trade target…….. Let the points roll in

        Dont Blush Babbie · 24/06/2016 at 21:24

        Where's Derek's input ?

          Derek · 24/06/2016 at 21:48


    hedski · 24/06/2016 at 21:26

    Might trade him in for Brodie…

    FlyingHawkAssassin · 24/06/2016 at 21:54

    Significant output from zac dawson should be a solid captain pick for the rest of the year!

      Derek · 24/06/2016 at 22:03

      He has increased $2k. Might have missed the boat

Steeeve · 24/06/2016 at 21:16

Come on Pendles, need you to find something.
The bloody ball would be a good start.

Dont Blush Babbie · 24/06/2016 at 21:23

S.Collins – Skills are sensational

Davonaise · 24/06/2016 at 21:24

Oh no guys Pendles on the bench whole of 8 mins into the 3rd not good signs

HOLLA · 24/06/2016 at 21:25

Pies supporter but loving collins tonight

Grahame Lebroy · 24/06/2016 at 21:34

Slapped the VC on Pendles tonight and hasn't that just gone crackers so far. Pathetic doesn't come close to describing the man's game tonight

    Derek · 24/06/2016 at 21:46

    I think Dawson even has Pendles beat tonight.

      Grahame Lebroy · 24/06/2016 at 21:58

      He's been a no show, McGuane had it right he's not captain material……..

        Hubba · 25/06/2016 at 08:50

        He hasthe flu apparently

Neverweaken · 24/06/2016 at 21:35

Who else has Collins on the field. I have no choice. Only got 18 players. But looking good. And Barlow and Treloar 🙂

    Gavin · 24/06/2016 at 21:38

    I do

    FlyingHawkAssassin · 24/06/2016 at 21:44

    I have him as emergency but will take his score over Brands. I have Collins, Barlow, Cox, Smith and Phillips so I am a happy man apart from my donut

      Scyb · 24/06/2016 at 21:49

      I am benching Gibson to take Collin's score….

      6 premos on the defense line and cant believe i have to take the rookie's score

        hedski · 24/06/2016 at 21:53

        I'm benching the Rug.
        Have Gibbo now your making me 2nd guess.
        Bloody sc.

        Gavin · 24/06/2016 at 21:53

        Thats funny you bench Gibson and he will go 150+ with shit weather in tassie and playing against a shit side

          hedski · 24/06/2016 at 22:28

          Yeah Rug off

      Neverweaken · 24/06/2016 at 22:22

      First 3 players for me this week. Collins Barlow and Treloar. Have VC on Barlow. So will probably go danger. Although there will be some scaling

Grantc · 24/06/2016 at 21:58

Yes put him on in the last 3 min before the game started instead of Tucker, guess he makes up for Pendles whom I bought this week. Oh well that's SuperCoach.

Hoot · 24/06/2016 at 22:01

If one was to have Rocky/Trelor/Collins etc… as VC, what score would suffice as to not put the C on DANGER?

    Grantc · 24/06/2016 at 22:04

    Last week passed up 130 on Rocky for Danger but don't know if I'd push my luck to far.

      Hoot · 24/06/2016 at 22:07

      hmmm.. you did gamble well.

      I took rockys 130 last week… to be honest id do it again … I think…

        Gherkin · 24/06/2016 at 22:51

        Hi Hoot. I took Rocky's 130 last week too. Got the VC on him again and i'll take his 130 again if he has a good one. Danger is a beast but I generally take anything over 125 from my VC.

    Roger · 25/06/2016 at 00:58

    Normally i'd say 130+ is a good time to take the VC score. I think though that if Danger keeps the form up, you'd probably want 150 from a vc so you get at least 300 points. 130 is a great score from Rocky (which I took last week) but when you have guys like Danger who score as big as he has been doing. It's really all or nothing. You break from the majority of the pack who are going to put the C on Danger and you either get a good score from your VC and Danger just goes mad and pumps out 350+, or your VC scores good and Danger has a downer, and the majority of the field gets a dodgy captains score. I have a feeling though that if Rockliff gets another big score, and I decide to stick with Danger, he will probably have a average game.

tuxCS · 24/06/2016 at 22:11

Had Collins on the bench this week as an emergency, and i have decided im going to loophole him. My backline is full premium and ive narrowed it down to two players that will be sitting this week on the bench, either Bartel or Rance, im thinking Rance is the better option because richmond are playing brisbane this week and i dont think itll be in their back half alot. Thoughts?

    Grantc · 24/06/2016 at 22:17

    Rance for sure

    Boltons blues · 24/06/2016 at 22:24

    Same dilemma, taking the punt and putting rance on the bench, even if he gets 120, 117 from Collins is a safe score to lock away

    Derek · 24/06/2016 at 22:24

    Can you bring Joyce into your midfield and swing Bartel into the guts?

    I've already got Joyce in midfield just for this.

      tuxCS · 24/06/2016 at 22:28

      Unfortunately no, didn't have enough trades to spend one on getting a dpp/loophole player like Joyce

    Hoot · 24/06/2016 at 22:28

    Have you seen Rance's previous scores V's Brisbane

    SC predicts a sub 90 which is in line with history.

    Take Collins 😉

      tuxCS · 24/06/2016 at 22:32

      The question wasn't whether I take collins' score or not, it was who he replaces in my back line, thanks though 🙂

    Gherkin · 24/06/2016 at 22:41

    Hi Tux. I'm benching Rance to take Collins' score. I've got Shaw, Doc, Simmo, Bartel, Rance and Laird this week and will bench Rance as Laird has already played.

    Like Derek's idea but can't afford to use a trade just for this purpose.

      tuxCS · 24/06/2016 at 23:21

      We have the exact same backline Gherkin haha

        Moustachio · 25/06/2016 at 10:59

        Those pods tho…

    Matt · 24/06/2016 at 23:13

    Same Delimma for me as well. Got one of Gibson, Bartel, Docherty, Simpson, Shaw to put on the pine. Who should it be? That was my order of preference

      Derek · 24/06/2016 at 23:23

      Gibson. The Hawks backline will get real cold on Sunday, won't have to do much

        Billioux · 24/06/2016 at 23:29

        Interesting. i only got 17 due to Zorko,wells,stewart,hopper debacle. So collins score sweet as,so to the new big cox.The answer is there grayson,u know the answer.

        Matt · 24/06/2016 at 23:54

        Thanks Derek for confirming what I thought as well! Cheers

Grantc · 24/06/2016 at 22:12

Hoot 130 I'd take that usually but there was a bit of a debate on weather the loophole worked so I didn't want to risk losing my c points, I was very happy it payed off but nowwe know the loophole works I probably wouldn't risk it.

    Hoot · 24/06/2016 at 22:26

    thanks for the feedback 😉

    I think Geel V's the Saints, id require a 130+ from my VC to not go Patrick.

FlyingHawkAssassin · 24/06/2016 at 22:19

Pendles, Hanners, Neale all cheap soon. I am indeed aroused. Will be bringing 2'in soon for Wines and Libba which 2 do I pick?

    tuxCS · 24/06/2016 at 22:30

    Neale and Pendles for me, I love hannebery but he has a lot of players to contend with in the Sydney midfield. Also less ownership for Neale.

    tdesmaele · 24/06/2016 at 23:02

    Likewise. I'm thinking Hanners and Pendles but you can't go wrong with either of the three really.

    Gherkin · 24/06/2016 at 23:05

    I've already got Pendles and am looking at Hanners or Neale for after the byes. Leaning towards Neale for a bit of a POD compared to Hanners and he's so consistent (last week aside). Looking at Hanners scores, he's been a beast but dropped of significantly over the last few weeks. Not sure if he just needed a rest with and he'll come out firing after the bye or if it's something else.

    Pendles and Neale for mine.

      Derek · 24/06/2016 at 23:21

      We all forget what Ross Lyon can do. Pick Neale at your own risk.

        Gherkin · 24/06/2016 at 23:35

        Normally i'd agree, Derek. Ross the Boss tends to rest players leading into finals, not likely an issue this year. It seems Barlow was dropped earlier in the year to work on his defensive gam and is now getting 100's as a defensive mid/tagger. Highly doubt Neale will be dropped or rested given Freo's shocking run of injury, I think they've only got 28 fit players to choose from.

        Having said that, it IS Ross Lyon so anything is possible I spose.

        smart as s · 25/06/2016 at 00:06

        neale is my new favourite player, except for the robbo tag, has been magnificent this season. Not a surprise he is the leading poss getter in the comp.

          Derek · 25/06/2016 at 00:10

          good call. I do like that Freo play 4 of their last 5 games at home.

            Derek · 25/06/2016 at 00:11

            BUT, 6 of their last 7 are against top 8 teams. Hmmmmmmmm

Derek · 24/06/2016 at 22:47

I planned to trade Collins to Rance next week, that won't be happening now.

Is Tom Lee injured or omitted?

    Gavin · 24/06/2016 at 22:57


      Billioux · 24/06/2016 at 23:31

      Collins now d7 i thinking

        Derek · 24/06/2016 at 23:38

        BSmith was going to be my D7 once I got Rance. Might just keep Collins at D7 and trade Smith straight to Rance.

    Juzzy · 24/06/2016 at 23:42

    Hi Derek,
    The best laid plans … then this round.
    My backline looks ok so I was hoping to keep Collins as bench cover going forward. Smiling after tonight.
    Having said that… if you have another def as bench cover why not go to Rance ?
    I know your views on cash generation but if you think Rance will outscore Collins by 30 to 50 pts per round for the next few weeks, and it helps you through next weeks bye, then I reckon pull the trigger.
    P.S. If Lee is your bench cover hold. He wont be back for a few weeks.

      Juzzy · 24/06/2016 at 23:52

      Hold Collins I mean 🙂

        Derek · 25/06/2016 at 00:07

        good call.

        My defence is currently: Shaw, Laird, Bartel, McVeigh, Rich, BSmith (Collins, Lee) – plus Joyce in Mids.

        Was going to upgrade Collins to Rance and then loop Rich, BSmith & Joyce as D6.

        Collins good form plus hold for cash generation, changes the plan a bit. Collins has bye next week. Still have 11 trades after this week.

        Maybe upgrade Rich next week to Rance, then upgrade Collins to Doch in a few more weeks? And still keep BSmith at D7.

        All week to think about it, unless Rich gets chopped this week.

          Juzzy · 25/06/2016 at 00:38

          Shaw, Bartel,, Rich, Lee, Collins …
          All not playing next week.

          Cool swingsets but I wouldn't be relying on Joyce.

          If the rest of your team is in good order then I would bring in a proven defender next week.

            Derek · 25/06/2016 at 10:11

            I'll have 19 next week

Mudguts · 24/06/2016 at 22:48

Pendles 87, Dawson 85. Huh?

    medadsson · 24/06/2016 at 22:58

    Try not to think about it. It will fry your brain.

    Gavin · 24/06/2016 at 22:59

    Pendles was tagged in first half and then scored like 50 plus points in 2nd half. Barlow tagged Pendles 1st half and Trelaor 2nd half

    Gherkin · 24/06/2016 at 23:09

    Buckley said Pendles was crook in his presser. Probably explains his lowish score. As for AA, full back Dawson. I can't explain his low score. Should bounce back after his bye.

      Billioux · 24/06/2016 at 23:33

      Zac d6 for sure now glad held.. Sorry to jump on old theme.

      Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 10:42


Richard · 24/06/2016 at 22:57

Help please. I have 6 defenders all playing plus Collins as an emergency? Does Collins score count in my 18 automatically or do I have to swap Bartel, Rance, Shaw or Simpson out for Williams (not playing), so I can get the Collins score? If I have to swap someone, who?

    Gherkin · 24/06/2016 at 23:12

    Hi Richard. You'll need to bench someone for Williams and leave the E on Collins to get his score. We've been discussing who to bench a little higher up, the general consensus is to bench Rance.

      Richard · 24/06/2016 at 23:15

      Thanks Gherkin. Appreciate it. Have just moved Rance. Very sad given I just traded him in.Happy to take the 126 though!

        Gherkin · 24/06/2016 at 23:18

        I just traded him in too mate. Bit sad to see him on the pine but Collins had an absolute ripper and it would be silly not to take his score.

          Roger · 25/06/2016 at 00:54

          I would've done the Rance move to even after trading him in this week, but I had Collins on the ground because my last premium is another defender or midfielder seeing how I have Bartel in the middle at the moment. Brand playing is good because he will make more money and more money means more chances to pick up a better priced player.

John · 24/06/2016 at 23:11

Had peddles as my bloody vc and now I gotta pick a better captain. Would Danger be safest option or should I have a punt with someone like shaw, selwood or ablett?

    Gherkin · 24/06/2016 at 23:17

    Hi John. If you're playing for overall points, go with Danger for sure. Safest option. If you need league wins and are looking like you'll struggle, you may need to take a risk to get up. Maybe GAJ? If your opponent has the C on danger, you gain nothing by doing the same. Brass ones required in that situation.

      Derek · 24/06/2016 at 23:35

      I had CC on Pendles until 30sec before bounce.

      Will put VC on Danger and leave Gaz as my backup

    Roger · 25/06/2016 at 00:51

    I was tempted to put in on Pendles, but stuck with my VC on Rockliff.
    I guess if you're in the situation that you're in, Danger is the safest option, as I have been burned bad the last 2 weeks from not having the C on him. But if you think you need to try and get ahead on most who will pick Danger as their C, in order i'd go Ablett, Shaw and Selwood.

    Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 08:35

    Not many will pick Jelwood

Neverweaken · 24/06/2016 at 23:29

Take Barlows 119 or just assume Danger will pump out another huge score?

    Derek · 24/06/2016 at 23:32

    You can't take 119.

    Barlow was good again tonight, very happy with how he is going. Must say he looks top 6 forward

    Gherkin · 24/06/2016 at 23:39

    I'd back Danger in for 130+ this week, his form is too good to ignore. Way more upside than downside with a score of 119.

Grantc · 25/06/2016 at 06:08

In a bit of a delemma, gotta get rid of Tippet this round was looking at Montagna or Deledio really unsure which way to go any ideas guys or is there a better option out there. Cheers

    Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 06:46

    Saints easier run home, Joey Montagna

      Kev · 25/06/2016 at 08:24

      Agree. With Melbourne bloody weather at the moment 7/10 games under the roof gives him the edge over Lids

    Bolton's Blues · 25/06/2016 at 10:41

    Joey, i was going to go Lids and Zorko this week, but went Lids and Joey, thankful because Zorko isnt in this week

Adam · 25/06/2016 at 06:54

Who should I vc/c out of Ablett, Shaw, Dangerfield. Ablett averages 146 against Hawks since 2008 and 152 in Tasmania. Danger averages 176.33 at Eithiad Stadium this year which includes 127,229,173 and Shaw averages 151.75 at Spotless Stadium which includes 143,143,203,118.
Option 1- VC: Shaw, C: Dangerfield
Option 2-VC: Dangerfield, C: Ablett
Option 3- VC: Shaw, C:Ablett

    Kev · 25/06/2016 at 08:21

    Gaz has awesome numbers against pretty much everyone but you can't ignore Danger at the moment. You have to put the C on him. I'd go option 1

    Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 08:26

    Option 2 – if Danger doesn't go bang then you have the little master

    Clarky99 · 25/06/2016 at 15:38

    Option 2 by a country mile. 🙂

Tony · 25/06/2016 at 07:24

Hi Guys. Selwood or Rockliff or Steven. It doesn't worry if the first two have the bye next week but need someone this week to field 18.

    Gus · 25/06/2016 at 08:57


    Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 09:37

    I would pick Selwood out of the three

johnno2908 · 25/06/2016 at 07:51

Phillips looked really solid last night. Should hopefully be enough to keep his spot. Kicked a goal and could have hd a couple more.

    Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 08:29

    Most of the young Pies look good, the next few years looking strong for the black & white, unfortunately

      Grahame Lebroy · 25/06/2016 at 08:55

      Their playing list isn't as bad as most people think. If they had a dynamic elite key forward they would be alot more competitive

    Tom · 25/06/2016 at 08:57

    Yep straight on for me next week. Will play rest of season IMO. Also Joyce on bubble this week and make $$$$ for next week 🙂

johnno2908 · 25/06/2016 at 09:19

How many has everyone got on ground this week? I am seeing some with like 14 or 15 in my leagues.

    Gavin · 25/06/2016 at 09:31

    Ive got 20 this week 21 next week baring injuries???

      johnno2908 · 25/06/2016 at 09:48

      Nice. I had 21… then Zorko Hopper and Stewart happened. So only 18 now and was forced to make 3 trades.

    Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 10:20

    21 on ground + 1 E

    The Ranger · 25/06/2016 at 10:32

    Wells, Zorko and Stewart put me down to just the 18.

    Shake n bake · 25/06/2016 at 10:39

    Had 20 but wit Zorko & Stewart out back to 18. Traded in Sloane & Phillips for Dunkley & AMT so back to 20. Had vc on Sloane.

      Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 10:45

      nice move!

      johnno2908 · 25/06/2016 at 10:50

      Good trades. I have had Sloane for 5 or 6 weeks now and he seems to have gone to another level. Just a tacking beast, and running games out really well.

    Tim · 25/06/2016 at 12:15

    18. Wells and Hopper cost me 20.

Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 09:40

Danger Danger look out Saints!!

Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 10:03

Current team after 3 trades Round 14

DEF: Shaw,Doch,Bartel,Laird,DBJ,SCollins (Rugs,Brand)
MID: Danger,Neale,Selwood,Treloar,Gaz,Hanners,Petracca,JSmith (Trengrove,Gresham,Menapoo)
RCK: Goldy,Blitz (Nic-Nat)
FWD: Zorko,Dusty,Joey,Zerret,Franks,Kerridge (McCarthy,Phillips)

8 Trades / $27,900

Looking at making two trades next week (Round 15):

Nic-Nat for back up ruck, but who?
Upgrade MID JSmith / Petracca – Pendles (price drop coming), Gray
Upgrade DEF Ruggles – Rance, Simpson, Savage

Please give feedback, am I missing something better?

    Hubba · 25/06/2016 at 12:55

    What's your plan to get Danger? Slaughter nicnat and dbj. Finish your midfield.

      Hubba · 25/06/2016 at 14:27

      Oops …you have danger …. ok … still slaughter those i said and yes Pendles next week … looking ok dude ….

        Starkingdom · 26/06/2016 at 08:45

        Thanks Hubba, I thought Danger was missing last night at ES, then he turned up for a late cameo.
        Pendles is looking very nice!

Davonaise · 25/06/2016 at 10:44

Wtf they have painted the grass on the far wing at Etihad "Danger Lane"

    Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 10:48

    Needs 54 + possessions to overtake Neale as #1. Shut the roof

The Ranger · 25/06/2016 at 10:47

That lazy 85 is Zac Dawsons highest score since Rd.3 2011.
I was trying to get Doc in but I think it's time to jump on board the Dawson train!

    Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 10:49

    hmm.. check

    Grahame Lebroy · 25/06/2016 at 11:55

    shark move……

      One Touch Wonder · 25/06/2016 at 13:06

      $227k you could actually do worse!

Marc · 25/06/2016 at 11:22

Lids or Montagna???? Looks like saints have the easier run home??

tom · 25/06/2016 at 11:34

Loopholing Collins, subbing Adams onfield and letting Rich sit on the pine. Thinking the tiges tag Rich

    Hubba · 25/06/2016 at 12:47

    Tiges will tag rich???… tagging Hanley, rocky or even christensen would be a higher priority . Still agree on rich to the pine because he's no premo.

Johnstone · 25/06/2016 at 12:44

Heard rumours Pitonnet late in for one of the Hawks ruckmen if it interests anyone!

    One Touch Wonder · 25/06/2016 at 13:05

    Pity it not Stewart…..can he ruck ?

Hubba · 25/06/2016 at 14:33

Menaspud on track to ton up!!! That's gotta hurry … sorry patch. .

    Hubba · 25/06/2016 at 14:34
