The Standing Room – RD14

Published by Jock on


Over to you GAJ

Our captain options have not fired.

And many of us now turn with humility to one of the greatest humans ever to have graced a footy field. Hopes and dreams so often rest on his shoulders. We place our fantasy fate again in your beautiful hand my friend. Do us proud.


Who has the C on the Little Master heading into the Hawks Gold Coast clash?



Gavin · 25/06/2016 at 10:48

Whats the community think a par score might be?

    Pete · 25/06/2016 at 10:57

    Maybe 1900ish? Hard to say this week.

      CaPtKaOs · 25/06/2016 at 11:06

      Agree. Around 1900. But there will be plenty below that.

        Hubba · 25/06/2016 at 16:01

        With mena's ton … I'll give that a nudge now..

          Hubba · 26/06/2016 at 20:30

          Had the c on gary for the first time this year … just squeezed out a 1902.. Will take that

    Rick Grimes · 25/06/2016 at 10:58

    All depends on the captain I think. Last few rounds dictated by huge scores. I'll be disappointed not to crack at least 1900 this week.

Rick Grimes · 25/06/2016 at 10:59

Collins looked a beast last night. Intercepts galore and got around it plenty. Could be a keeper for D7.

    Redgumwon · 25/06/2016 at 11:17

    Bench cover I think more likely. Like all key defenders Collins will go large at time and then through in low scores. However he looks to have good job security now and can give us great bench cover after our defence is filled with proven premiums

    I N Pieman · 25/06/2016 at 11:56

    Was Considering trading Collins next week. Not anymore. He was fantastic & that score will sit in his price for 3 price movements

      Redgumwon · 25/06/2016 at 11:58

      Agreed I was thinking the same. Both DBJ & Collins out for a premo upgrade was the plan not anymore. I need to find another trade out with DBJ now

      Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 12:02

      Same boat.. awesome effort under siege. Leave him alone Ross!

        I N Pieman · 25/06/2016 at 12:07

        Significant performance to make people change trade plans. Let's see if rich can do the same Bahahahaha

          Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 12:11

          dumped him for Doch. had enough, this is NOT a charity..

          Redgumwon · 25/06/2016 at 12:43

          Interesting to see Nathan Broad in as a late change for the tigers. I had a watch on Broad over the preseason. If he can stay in the side and play enough games he could be one for a downgrade when he's on the bubble

Pete · 25/06/2016 at 11:01

And my opponent didn't have him in my money league just to make his score even better!

Bob · 25/06/2016 at 11:09

I'm fielding 19 this week arm so does this make AMT to lids a lucsury trade?

    Pete · 25/06/2016 at 11:13

    Maybe it is but it's also a great long term trade so I would still do it.

    Redgumwon · 25/06/2016 at 11:18

    Do the trade Lids should score well, Then that will knock out one of your lower scoring players scores. They'll take your best scores in from your players on field.

    Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 11:43

    is that luck-surely or luxury? do you have joey montagna? another good choice..

    Bob · 25/06/2016 at 12:44

    No I don't have joey, wasn't really concidering him. It's either gunna be AMT to lids this week or to Merrett next week?

tom · 25/06/2016 at 11:37

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

    Gavin · 25/06/2016 at 11:39

    Smart move! Rick be lucky if he scores 70

      Gavin · 25/06/2016 at 11:40


    Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 11:41

    certain to tag the Bich

    I N Pieman · 25/06/2016 at 11:52

    Take that score over Daniel Shit every day of the week. The bench is where he belongs

      tom · 25/06/2016 at 12:31

      Will you do the same Pieman?

        I N Pieman · 25/06/2016 at 12:40

        Likely to trade Bich next week if he does my head in again today

          Watchitgo · 25/06/2016 at 16:01

          Your head has gone already! You take this GAME far too seriously.

Mac · 25/06/2016 at 11:50

Does the loophole work? I heard it doesn't as its only best 18 onfield?

    Gavin · 25/06/2016 at 11:54

    Yes it works, top 18 players including E's

    Kev · 25/06/2016 at 12:31

    Your C can go on a bye round player if you're happy with your VC choice. It worked fine for me last week

      Mac · 25/06/2016 at 12:37

      Meant bench loophole but thanks kev and gavin

        Roger · 25/06/2016 at 12:48

        Yes it does Mac.
        I had the VC on Rocky last week, put Danger on the bench and put the E on him and put Pendles on the ground. Works fine.

          aussiedoc3r · 26/06/2016 at 10:39

          so do you take dangers score or go gaz ?

I N Pieman · 25/06/2016 at 11:54

A most unPendles like performance last night. Carrying another niggle for sure

    anthonyc12 · 25/06/2016 at 11:58

    Bucks said after the game that he was under the weather.

    Expecting him to make up for it next week against Carlton.

      I N Pieman · 25/06/2016 at 12:09

      Well that would explain it. Hope hes the next man to step up the 200 club

        Gavin · 25/06/2016 at 16:14

        He was tagged to by Barlow the first half

          GoldRush · 26/06/2016 at 16:22

          Pendles is untaggable, he was crook and still pumped out a half decent score.

            hedski · 26/06/2016 at 16:43

            Your giving me a touch up in mcmemes league GRush

Harley · 25/06/2016 at 12:07

Ive had Gorringe as Ruck cover and now he is out with a hip. Does anyone know how serious it is. Could he get a call up next week? Or should I upgrade him so I have 18 players playing. thanks to zorko and wells for stuffing up my plans.

    Tim · 25/06/2016 at 12:12

    Upgrade him. Phillips will likely stay in.

Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 12:15

another good effort last night worth a mention is Neale's 22 handballs, 5 kicks, & 6 tackles with Levi's Wood all over him

Big G · 25/06/2016 at 12:24

Got to love when the rookies get decent scores alias Collins and Philips last night.

    I N Pieman · 25/06/2016 at 12:27

    Been having trouble walking ever since

      Derek · 25/06/2016 at 13:10

      McGovern on Thursday was nice as well

min0008 · 25/06/2016 at 12:35

Loopholing Collins, putting Austin on field and putting Rance on the bench.

    I N Pieman · 25/06/2016 at 12:41

    Wow! Giving Rance the marching orders. Must have a Stella backline mate

    Bolton's Blues · 25/06/2016 at 13:13

    Same as me, full premo defence, but 126 is a safe 126, considering the season Rance has had, he will have 40 or 130, even if he gets 130, ill bank the 126

Marc · 25/06/2016 at 12:39

Lids or Montagna??? Saints look like they have the easier run home

    Pete · 25/06/2016 at 12:46

    I like Lids

    chad · 25/06/2016 at 12:48

    I have the same issues thinking Montagna cheaper plays undercover most games from here out dual position as already stated easier run home.

    Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 13:00

    Montagna, Saints starting to warm up & he's dirt cheap

Pete · 25/06/2016 at 12:51

Trading in my last forward premo today and it's between Lids and Martin and my question is whether it's a dumb move to go lids forward and Martin into my midfield next week or is it wrong to have Martin in my midfield as possibly my only mid/fwd swing option from now on?

FlyingHawkAssassin · 25/06/2016 at 13:22

What do you guys think of Nic Nat to Martin, Ben Ken to Lids and Wines to Doch via dpp. This fields me with 17 but only way to get the 18 is to also trade out Tracca/ Libba. Leaves me with 7 trades and about 300k in the bank for upgrading Rich, Smith and AMT.

Derek · 25/06/2016 at 13:31

Will i put menadue onfield? i'm worried he might score a minus.

    hedski · 25/06/2016 at 13:36

    Ha ha. Doubt he'll count towards your score unless he beats Rich and Smith.

    Pete · 25/06/2016 at 13:36

    This has me thinking? If he did score a minus in a normal round and you had an emergency, would you get the e score or be stuck with the minus score because it's not a 0?

      Pete · 25/06/2016 at 13:38

      Oh and stranger things have happened such as Zac Dawson's 82 last night. Possible trade in option next week?

        Kev · 25/06/2016 at 15:00

        The minus score has happened a while back, pete. Can't remember who it was (from the dogs maybe?) Scored -3. As a playing emergency his score counted

          The Ranger · 25/06/2016 at 15:49

          I know this one 'cos he was in my team at the time.
          It was Gary Rohan in 2104 and I got a -2 from him. Unbloodybelievable.

    menaDUE · 25/06/2016 at 13:36

    he's about to go big.. phfft

      Hubba · 25/06/2016 at 14:37

      You've been Men a done

        Derek · 25/06/2016 at 15:02

        A week is a long time in SuperCoach.

          Hubba · 25/06/2016 at 16:03

          He was Mena-due for a big score. …

            Derek · 25/06/2016 at 16:13

            Lol. I knew he would do ok πŸ˜‰

hedski · 25/06/2016 at 13:32

Dusty vc into Danger.
Hoping Snapperhead goes to Cotch.

HardWick · 25/06/2016 at 13:45

My boy is on fire!

Pete · 25/06/2016 at 13:51

Going Shaw Vc into Danger C. Although I don't know why I was my time with the loophole because at the moment Danger could break both legs in the first 5 minutes of the game and still pump out a 150.

Dont Blush Baby · 25/06/2016 at 14:01

Anyone got the VC on the Poo ?

    PODPoo · 25/06/2016 at 14:03

    what a brilliant cunning move by Richmond

    Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 14:30

    Has the poo broke his ceiling already, still 10min to go first half

FlyingHawkAssassin · 25/06/2016 at 14:01

Traded out menadue last week instead of macpherson. Hope menadue doesnt get another tourch for the game

    Keenbutclueless · 25/06/2016 at 14:32

    I traded him out this week! Had 19 players so didn't think I would need his points. And I thought he was more chance to miss his break even, so would lose cash! Traded Smith out last week, thinking he would also struggle to hit his BE. I also didn't trade in Phillips this week. I need that trade to play next week to get 18 on the field, so I thought it better to wait to make sure he was picked. So have missed a few points this week. Luckily my team is a bit crap, so I had Collins on the park.

      FlyingHawkAssassin · 25/06/2016 at 14:36

      Well trading macpherson instead of menadue would have fielded me 18 players for the next 2 rounds instead of 17…

    Derek · 25/06/2016 at 15:36

    I think he had 1 touch in the 3rd quarter

    Gavin · 25/06/2016 at 20:31

    You are dumb as a door nail

The master · 25/06/2016 at 14:28

The poo has turned into diareah, he's everywhere.

    Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 14:34

    The Poo has hardened

      The master · 25/06/2016 at 14:49

      could not have picked a better time to harden…… little pooty

        The Ranger · 25/06/2016 at 14:53

        First Dawson now Menadue….be afraid people, things are weird.

    Hubba · 25/06/2016 at 14:35

    menadoing everthing!!! Looking to ton up

    Dont Blush Baby · 25/06/2016 at 14:36

    Ha Ha, like that, he's reached his BE already .

    Good POD for me as I'm in a big money league and my opponent doesn't have him

      Shake n bake · 25/06/2016 at 15:03

      Is ur name Paul?

        Dont Blush Baby · 25/06/2016 at 15:09

        Yes David;

          Shake n bake · 25/06/2016 at 15:35

          Good luck!

Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 14:46

Damo you are brilliant, had us bluffed, did you back him for the brownlow?

hedski · 25/06/2016 at 15:05

The Poo outscoring Brodie "Shit" Smith before half time makes me realise just how bad I wanna trade him out for Doc this week.

Derek · 25/06/2016 at 15:05

In a normal week I wouldn't have had McGovern, Collins or Menadue on field. Funny week

johnny_z · 25/06/2016 at 15:09

Accidently starting Menadue over phillips is turning out better than expected! 75 to half time!

Matt · 25/06/2016 at 15:11

How's the trouser action from Mendue

Backwardweek9 · 25/06/2016 at 15:16

How is it that SCers still have Menadue after his dreadful past efforts. Good luck to you if you kept him!

    Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 15:18

    ha I know go figure.. I still have him

      Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 15:19

      Chuck him in the midfield, a lock

    Derek · 25/06/2016 at 15:34

    Kept him for his DPP

    Matt · 25/06/2016 at 15:36

    Because the golden rule of SuperCoach is sell high. I kept Davis, Ruggles, Gresham too. Welcome

      Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 15:43

      yes! still waiting for Gresham to improve

        Matt · 25/06/2016 at 22:14

        We are not waiting anymore Starkingdom πŸ™‚ They laughed at us but who's laughing now.

          Starkingdom · 26/06/2016 at 10:36

          i was beginning to doubt myself; when it rains it pours!

    Juzzy · 25/06/2016 at 15:49

    Had bigger fish to fry.
    Also no AFL clubs let a kid play 9 shockers back to back unless they reckon he's a bit special.

    Steeeve · 25/06/2016 at 16:16

    I had worked out the perfect plan to upgrade Menadue and Ruggles to Lids and Rance. That would allow me to keen Tippa as a fwd/def swing and all would be great.
    Then NicNat went down and I traded him to Gawn. That stuffed up all my plans. Next minute, Ruggles starts making good money and Menadue comes back with a bloody Superman cape on. What a fascinating game the ol supercoach.

    Mudguts · 25/06/2016 at 17:56

    Simple. Wasn't worth enough to trade or had a better trade. Pure luck for my part.

Boltons blues · 25/06/2016 at 15:29

Menapoo doubling his season total in one half

Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 15:34

cmon Menadue LIFT

    Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 15:45

    He just tonned up! wowzers

      Hubba · 25/06/2016 at 15:48

      I kept him too…. just pure luck though …Always seemed to have more pressing issues to fix …… do we start a chain asking whether we keep him as a f7 or f8?

        Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 16:00

        must be considered, he could be anything

    Juzzy · 25/06/2016 at 15:54

    I am just glad he will get a game next week.

Tommo09 · 25/06/2016 at 15:36

Well Rocky VC worked out…NOT

    Dont Blush Baby · 25/06/2016 at 15:53

    Same – 7 kicks &19 handballs – grrrr

Davonaise · 25/06/2016 at 15:38

So guys my VC on Martin looks to be a bit short, he is 87 3 qtr time even if he has a 40 pts quarter it's a bit low.
Danger or Ablett is going to be the biggest C call of the round for most of us I reckon.

But who to whack it on?
Further more who other than God himself has scored 3 150+ sc points in a row?
Can Danger do that?

    I N Pieman · 25/06/2016 at 15:49

    You'd be gutsy to overlook danger

    hedski · 25/06/2016 at 15:51

    I had Dusty too.
    Danger now.

Dont Blush Baby · 25/06/2016 at 15:58

Round 14 Rising Star – C. Menadue – couldn't happen ,could it ?

    Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 16:03

    Has Collins had a vote, otherwise yes for sure

Hubba · 25/06/2016 at 16:00

Assuming that most had him at the start and traded him when he got injured …Will anyone reconsider redrafting johanissen when he comes back after the bye? Maybe wait agame … Say he gets 70-odd in his first game back in the seniors …. ? Is that enough ?

    Steeeve · 25/06/2016 at 16:13

    I hope he comes back with a couple of 80s. Then I'd strongly consider swooping at a bargain price. Can go big and really there are very few consistent defenders anyway so why not take the risk?

    Northernsoul74 · 25/06/2016 at 16:18

    I'll be grabbing him.

    Crowmagnon · 26/06/2016 at 10:41


    Starkingdom · 26/06/2016 at 10:48

    I've got a spot saved for a premium defender, either JJ or Z Williams but prefer JJ

Davonaise · 25/06/2016 at 16:03

been impressed with S.Martin has not gone soft that big Stiffie

Nick · 25/06/2016 at 16:08

Looking ahead to next rounds trades – should I look at Z Williams or Pittard to fill D6? Already have Shaw, Simpson, Docherty, Bartel and Laird.

    Hubba · 25/06/2016 at 16:29


      Hubba · 25/06/2016 at 17:32

      I mean Williams. ..

    Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 17:51

    Zac Dawson

Steeeve · 25/06/2016 at 16:11

I really hope Higgo didn't bring in Conca…

    I N Pieman · 25/06/2016 at 17:10

    Will be even cheaper soon

Pom · 25/06/2016 at 16:14

Whats happened to robinson????

    Redgumwon · 25/06/2016 at 16:20

    Townsend knocked him out with a hit to the head.

      Pom · 25/06/2016 at 18:13


Weasel · 25/06/2016 at 16:21

Menadue 130. Spare me.

    Mrs. Menadue · 25/06/2016 at 16:32

    good boy

Shake n bake · 25/06/2016 at 16:25

What bullshit sc scoring is menadue 4 touches in last half out scores Martin! & he only outscores delido by 19 don't clearences & goal assist count. Have to scratch my head again.

    Steeeve · 25/06/2016 at 16:31

    Score early and you're set.

      Shake n bake · 25/06/2016 at 16:39

      1 kick & 3 handballs 3 tackles in last half for menadue worth 56 pts!!!

        what the? · 25/06/2016 at 16:41

        something not right, you know what they say "if it smells like poo.."

          Davonaise · 25/06/2016 at 16:48

          Hahaha and you will get ass wipes telling you your a whining baby because you don't Understand sc scoring. IMO 53 pts for that is just insane.
          Been saying this for for many months that sc is not perfect and that players who get the 1st good wave score well through out. SuperCoach or SuperSurf?

            Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 16:55


            Matt · 25/06/2016 at 22:19

            Obviously you don't have Menadue

              Crowmagnon · 26/06/2016 at 10:37

              I have Menapoo and I agree.

                Dean · 26/06/2016 at 19:09

                The Menopause score has got me screwed, it really has. However that being said this happens every week with a few players and its B/S

Tommo09 · 25/06/2016 at 16:33

Taken C off Danger and onto Shaw at the last minute maybe

    Tommo09 · 25/06/2016 at 16:35

    I did it

    nuts · 25/06/2016 at 16:35

    brave, he's due for massive game

    Tommo09 · 25/06/2016 at 16:55

    Not looking good

    Derek · 25/06/2016 at 17:14


      Tommo09 · 25/06/2016 at 17:21

      God I'm stupid

    Tommo09 · 25/06/2016 at 17:54

    I hate my life

      Gavin · 25/06/2016 at 17:57

      You said it not me! Why?

    tophawk · 25/06/2016 at 18:14

    Ohh dear Tommo. Heater is looking at a spud score with a capital S!!! I am not sure what to say mate. Let's pray he get a bit of the pill in the last quarter and a bit to get close to 100.

    Moustachio · 25/06/2016 at 18:26

    > Taken C off Danger

    These are words that should never be spoken. The SC Gods have smited thee for thy insolence.

    nuts · 25/06/2016 at 18:50

    hr might make 50

Holy Smokes Batman. First it was McGovern, then Phillips and Collins and today Maitherson and Menadue. Who needs premiums.

WAYNE KERR · 25/06/2016 at 16:37

Had the VC on Menadue. Should I take this for my captain.

    half back flanker · 25/06/2016 at 16:38


      Gavin · 25/06/2016 at 17:13

      No you didnt!

    Crowmagnon · 26/06/2016 at 10:40

    No. put the C on Davis.

Mudguts · 25/06/2016 at 16:53

Menalegend! Must have been due!

I N Pieman · 25/06/2016 at 17:12

How much is Spudadue paying for the Brownlow?

    Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 17:18

    ha ha ha

Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 17:25

Zac Williams I think I love you.. looking good for D6 maybe D5!!

FlyingHawkAssassin · 25/06/2016 at 17:37

Should have went Simpson instead of Doch. Doch is going to decrease in money.

    Gavin · 25/06/2016 at 18:18

    Seriously? What are you crying about? They both have the same score at the moment and when you bring in a Premo such as Simpson or Docherty you dont worry about they lose cash or not they are keepers! Is this ur first year playing SC?

      FlyingHawkAssassin · 25/06/2016 at 18:55

      Im going to bring in the other next week thats why lol…

        Gavin · 25/06/2016 at 19:03

        Well then WTF are you crying about?

          FlyingHawkAssassin · 25/06/2016 at 19:13

          Well simpson should meet his be whereas doch will drop about 20k. How dense are you kiddo every cent counts this year

            Gavin · 25/06/2016 at 19:25

            You are the dense one

              Gavin · 25/06/2016 at 19:25


                Gavin · 25/06/2016 at 19:28

                a retard could play SC better than you AH!

                  FlyingHawkAssassin · 25/06/2016 at 19:38

                  Wht are you ranked idiot? Cash cows are limited this year so every cent counts is this your first year playing? Because you seem to have little knowledge about fantasy games in general!

                    Gavin · 25/06/2016 at 19:46

                    I'm ranked higher than you I know that! You are a fing idiot! Like I said a retard could play SC better than you! I'm Ranked in the top 100 fool!

                    Slick seller · 25/06/2016 at 19:59

                    Kys idiot it must be your first year I agree with Hawk

    relax · 25/06/2016 at 18:48

    how about now?

      Gavin · 25/06/2016 at 19:02

      yeah he's almost 100 lol

    Ostrichfarm · 25/06/2016 at 19:37

    Flying HawkAssassion. Think before you type. 'Should have GONE ' not went.

      settle petal · 25/06/2016 at 19:46

      yeah ya dumb ass laern granma

      Gavin · 25/06/2016 at 19:48

      Cheers Ost!

        JohnnyBoys · 25/06/2016 at 19:59

        You are a dumbass you are ranked at 30000 idiot I am in your league.

          danger · 25/06/2016 at 20:01

          How do you check rank?

            FlyingHawkAssassin · 25/06/2016 at 21:26

            Clearly using multiple accounts to look like you have backup. You can tell from the time of your sent messages and I have seen you do this on other posts suring the last few weeks. Judging from your tone and attitude I am assuming you are Cameron but are scared to go on your account because you will be verbally bashed.

          Gavin · 25/06/2016 at 20:04

          30,000 LOL

      danger · 25/06/2016 at 19:54

      "Considered appropriating" not went

wombatsfc · 25/06/2016 at 17:43

How crazy are this rounds scores?
"Geez I wish I had Menadue instead of Pendlebury or Rockliff."

    Starkingdom · 25/06/2016 at 17:46

    Stop it

      Gavin · 25/06/2016 at 18:41

      agree stop it! In the long rung these rookies wouldn't score like this its a flash in the pan! Menapoo what a joke a stroke of luck and will never come close to that again and it was the lions like playing the shittiest VFL side. Brisbane sucks.

        Gavin · 25/06/2016 at 18:41

        run* not rung

          Hubba · 25/06/2016 at 19:51

Bolton's Blues · 25/06/2016 at 18:13

What do we do with Patty Cripps, starting to give me a headache with some inconsistent scores

    Kev · 26/06/2016 at 10:21

    I've got him as well BB. Stubborn in holding him because I really thought this would be his breakout year.

    A straight swap to Ward after his bye is an option I'm considering

    Starkingdom · 26/06/2016 at 10:50

    He might have another good game or two in him but next year for Cripps

Neverweaken · 25/06/2016 at 18:28

Ok so Hampson over Martin didn't work. Hampson as ruck forward cover and Martin in after the bye maybe. What other rucks other than Gawn Goldie are there?
And weird SC scoring. Games today are really low. Lots of scaling afterwards

Crowmagnon · 25/06/2016 at 18:45

How much cash will Menadue make this week?
Was meant to trade Hopper next week and Mena this week. Actually got lucky for a change!

    nuts · 25/06/2016 at 18:52

    next 2 weeks or more should make nice $$

    Mudguts · 25/06/2016 at 19:20

    Trade plans out the window!!!

Neverweaken · 25/06/2016 at 18:52

Anybody take off shaw to get Collins score πŸ™‚

    Gavin · 25/06/2016 at 19:02

    Didnt have to have 21 playing this week

      Neverweaken · 25/06/2016 at 19:05

      Lucky I've got 17 so both Collins and shaw. Weird week

        Gavin · 25/06/2016 at 19:07

        yeah a bunch of flash in the pan rookies

tophawk · 25/06/2016 at 19:02

WTF is up with Heath Shaw. Playing like a prancing peacock. Most coaches have him, but bloody hell, something had to be said!

    Gavin · 25/06/2016 at 19:06

    He's shittying the bed gotta take the good with the bad

    Derek · 25/06/2016 at 20:34

    Everyone has him, no big problem

      tophawk · 25/06/2016 at 20:45

      Please re-read my comment above, "Most coaches have him, but bloody hell,"


        Gavin · 25/06/2016 at 20:52

        Here, here's tissue do with at your will? STFU!

          Gavin · 25/06/2016 at 20:55

          Sniveling cry baby!

josh · 25/06/2016 at 20:22

menadue on the bench with the E on him, if i have all 6 forwards playing but 18 scoring players will i get his points or not?

    Derek · 25/06/2016 at 20:33

    No. Need 1 non player in forwards for him to sub

    tophawk · 25/06/2016 at 20:35

    Yes. The lowest scorer in your forward line will now be disregarded. Cheers

    Neverweaken · 25/06/2016 at 21:59

    I would have thought no. Only 18 on the field or emergencies if their score would have been counted. ie one of your 6 forwards didn't play.

johnny_z · 25/06/2016 at 21:26

Menadue and Collins scoring premium like scores. Bartel and shaw spudding up!

Neverweaken · 25/06/2016 at 21:57

Bugger. Gut was telling me to take Barlows 119 over Danger. Not to bad though.

    Moustachio · 26/06/2016 at 00:18

    Your gut is silly

terry · 25/06/2016 at 21:58

take ablett as C over dangers 105 (prescaling)?

    Neverweaken · 25/06/2016 at 22:01

    Must be some rookie or spud you can put the C on πŸ™‚

    Steeeve · 25/06/2016 at 22:01

    Every day.

    Especially Sunday, honour thy Holiness.

      warm n Fuzzy · 25/06/2016 at 22:19

      Amen to that brother

    Juzzy · 25/06/2016 at 22:07

    That's my plan.

Manormouse · 25/06/2016 at 22:11

Absolutely. Like many SCers, I have the VC on Danger and will proceed with Abba as my C and who usually does well against the Hawks.

WAYNE KERR · 25/06/2016 at 22:12

Menadue flogs Danger , its a funny game.

Roosterlegs · 25/06/2016 at 22:12

I concur.

Warm n Fuzzy · 25/06/2016 at 22:17

Not heated comments. HEATER comments. Have another Pimms YOU OLD SHEILAH.

Energonliney · 25/06/2016 at 22:23

Ablett or sam mitchell for captain? I figure with hodge back to take some heat, mitchell should have a freer run at the ball? Or bank dangers 105 odd.

Neverweaken · 25/06/2016 at 22:26

Par for this week? I'm on 1546 with Hall and GAJ to go. Danger was captain.

    warm n Fuzzy · 25/06/2016 at 23:02


    Derek · 25/06/2016 at 23:08

    I'm on 1594 with Gaz with the C to go. Plus Joyce if he can beat Shaws 47.

    Might get 1950 but looking like I'll only win 2/10 leagues. Some got scores this week.

      Derek · 25/06/2016 at 23:13

      I meant 1850

      Shake n bake · 25/06/2016 at 23:13

      I'm on 1568 with hall Davis Ablett to go still have Sloane vc pts to be added aswell.

        Derek · 26/06/2016 at 06:59

        Another good week for you. Playing well

FlyingHawkAssassin · 25/06/2016 at 22:33

1493 with Ablett as captain. The donut has really hurt me this week. Assuming well under par?

    Warm n Fuzzy · 25/06/2016 at 22:57

    MMMMMMmmmmm Donuts.

TRIGGER HAPPY · 25/06/2016 at 22:34

Geez what a weird round.
Zorko, wells, hopper all out gave me 13.
With trades got 16 playing but brought in simmo, lids and Phillips so pretty happy with those ins.
Got the VC on danger, C on abs.
In god we trust?
Also got the E on ruggles (who is playing some good footy)
Should i take his 91 as banked points?
I will need to sit gibbo on the bench to do this?
Or back gibbo in to score 90?

    Neverweaken · 25/06/2016 at 22:50

    Rance, Bartell, Shaw all spuds. Very tempted to take Ruggles score if I was you

      warm n Fuzzy · 25/06/2016 at 23:01

      Also I was very lucky to get in Savage at the last moment. I would really be struggling without his 46 points. Now, I too am SAVAGE!

    Warm n Fuzzy · 25/06/2016 at 22:55

    91 is good fishing this round. Take the RUGG.

Tom · 25/06/2016 at 22:56

If gaz scores 115 odd I'm looking around 1900 from only 17 playing. This around par?

johnny_z · 25/06/2016 at 23:03

Par 1800 this week? Seems a fair few lower scores to popular players this round

    Weasel · 25/06/2016 at 23:12

    Seems like a week where scores will fluctuate a fair bit with Collins & Menadue 256.

tophawk · 25/06/2016 at 23:28

Rory Sloane VC locked. DAMN!

    Derek · 25/06/2016 at 23:45

    take it

Charlotte · 25/06/2016 at 23:53

Okay so all my defenders are playing this week but u have Collins on the bench as emergency, they don't take his score in the best 18 do they?

    Charlotte · 25/06/2016 at 23:54


    Juzzy · 26/06/2016 at 00:11

    Unfortunately no they don't.

Juzzy · 26/06/2016 at 00:18

I reckon anyone who cracks 2000 this week will be well ahead of the curve.
I am on 1710 with GAJ (capt) and Hall to come.
If they both post 3 figures tomorrow I think I may shout myself a 6 pack of VB.

    Juzzy · 26/06/2016 at 00:30

    Sorry, Carlton Draught obviously.
    Forgot where I was for a moment.

      hedski · 26/06/2016 at 11:16

      No Juzzy vb is very best
      (All made same place)

Mitch · 26/06/2016 at 00:29

Joyce a worthy downgrade option to free up the chest for byrne-jones?

    Danners · 26/06/2016 at 09:55

    He could be, don't expect him to get a heap of games though

    Starkingdom · 26/06/2016 at 10:02

    only to free up cash

Thomas · 26/06/2016 at 06:30

This is the worst week I have ever played
Brought in Savage
Put the C on Shaw
Had 16 on field
1377 with Ablett and Hall to go

Starkingdom · 26/06/2016 at 08:49

c'mon Gaz you little champ, bring it home today..

    I N Pieman · 26/06/2016 at 11:23

    Agreed. Surely he has one last monolithic score left in him. Today would be a good time to deliver it

MOC · 26/06/2016 at 08:51

My week was gone from the start…
Went Steven over Sloane
Traded Jroo for lids
Decided to keep B.Smith

Shauno · 26/06/2016 at 10:06

1504 with Hall and Ablett (c) to come. Danger a little down on his usual output and Shaw and Bartel both shit the bed, happy with the rest of my team.

Will be looking to paint the fence with Phillips to come in and an upgrade to Montagna. Bang bang!

CDawes · 26/06/2016 at 10:08

Im on track for about 1750 this week exactly 18 scorers but in my public league one guys whole field is bulldogs except 2 players luckily get him on their bye round set for big % boost lol

Mitch · 26/06/2016 at 10:10

Trade Adams or DBJ to free up cash for upgrades? Collins is my other rookie currently. Or just HOLD ?

Rest of team is
Shaw Simpson docherty laird Bartel Adams Collins dbj
Danger pendles Ablett Parker Sloane ward Libba kerridge Trengove Stewart d.cuningham
Gawn goldy Cox
Zorko Martin hall Barlow Montagna petracca Phillip menadue

12 trades and 116k left

    Harry · 26/06/2016 at 14:53

    DBJ out first, younger player and form has dropped off. Also has high BE. I've traded out Adams but he's still going well and worth just keeping an eye on for now

      Mitch · 26/06/2016 at 14:55

      Who for?

Starkingdom · 26/06/2016 at 10:13

A standing ovation for the following rookies, for repaying the faithful with a combined score of 591 points!!

C Menadue (rising star nom?)
S Collins
T Ruggles
J Gresham
J Smith
L McCarthy

..and a special mention goes out to T Phillips (87 points) for providing much needed relief during these volatile times.

    Kev · 26/06/2016 at 11:08

    Add McGovern (85) and Mathieson (89) to that list, Starkingdom. Rookies during this round as we approach full premium teams.

      Starkingdom · 26/06/2016 at 11:12

      sorry had the blinkers on.. both should've been on the list. Still raising my eyebrows at the upside down week in SC..

        I N Pieman · 26/06/2016 at 11:32

        They all spanked Heath Shaw

          Redgumwon · 26/06/2016 at 11:36

          and Jimmy Bartel

            I N Pieman · 26/06/2016 at 12:04

            Yep. 100 between shaw & Bartel. Ouch. Shaws score currently eliminated for me

              Kev · 26/06/2016 at 13:57

              As a Z. Williams owner I can't complain, he got off the chain with Shaw being tagged.

              You're giving me a fair touch up in the league match INP!

Crowmagnon · 26/06/2016 at 11:09

G'day community, can any of you maths geniuses please tell me the approximate price of Menadue after this round?

    Starkingdom · 26/06/2016 at 11:15

    I don't think it will be much this week but in the following few weeks he could go up quite a bit, IF he plays well.

    jockreynolds · 26/06/2016 at 12:47

    He'll jump to $250L mate

      jockreynolds · 26/06/2016 at 12:48

      $250K, with a nagative breakeven next week

        Crowmagnon · 26/06/2016 at 13:51

        Thanks Jock.
        Gonna have to cross the legs and hold the poo in for a couple of weeks.

I N Pieman · 26/06/2016 at 11:25

If you crack 2k this week I'd suggest your in for a significant rank jump. Bring it home Gary & Repay the faith Mr Hall

    jockreynolds · 26/06/2016 at 12:46

    I need GAJ more than ever this week Pie. I have had the horribilest of all anusses.

      I N Pieman · 26/06/2016 at 14:17

      Your not having a great season old mate

      Steeeve · 26/06/2016 at 16:07

      We need details!

    Starkingdom · 26/06/2016 at 16:29

    Gaz 100 half time, how good does it feel when you keep faith in the Son of God

shemmist · 26/06/2016 at 11:30

do i take dangers 110 as captain or give it to the little master?

    Redgumwon · 26/06/2016 at 11:35

    I've got the same captain's set up as you and I'm rolling the dice on the little master πŸ™‚

      I N Pieman · 26/06/2016 at 12:00

      I'm going Gary as well. Hawks don't tag. He's had a rest & he's due

    Starkingdom · 26/06/2016 at 12:21

    I'm confident going with Gaz

hedski · 26/06/2016 at 11:38

1430 with Danger cap and a donut.
Gibbo Gaz and Hall to come.
Communities thoughts on SMitchells likely run home? (I know they have bye next week think he's been rested enough and could come home hard, POD or stupidity?)

    I N Pieman · 26/06/2016 at 12:03

    You'd want some good cover. Prone to resting & likely for another come sc finals. Not in my calculations personally

      hedski · 26/06/2016 at 12:13

      Yes shouldn't be in mine I need a good slapping thanks Pieman.

        I N Pieman · 26/06/2016 at 12:48

        What's your budget?

          hedski · 26/06/2016 at 13:06

          Was thinking of the "Liberator" move.
          Chasing points this week, think I'll just stick to plan and munch my donut cheers.

            I N Pieman · 26/06/2016 at 14:18

            Don't make a trade based on one week

            Bretto · 26/06/2016 at 14:20

            Considering the same trade this week to chase some extra points. If you have enough trades up the sleeve with a low break even he will go up in value a fair bit then look at trading if he is rested – or becomes a handy m8 or 9. I'm going to pull the trigger I reckon!

              hedski · 26/06/2016 at 14:26

              As tempted as I am I have to agree with pieman, bad trade for my plans and I'm not exactly flush with trades.
              If your doing it good luck!!

chad · 26/06/2016 at 12:07

154 behind my opposition got GAJ and Hall to play they don't have anyone else, do i have a chance Tassie worries me.

    Starkingdom · 26/06/2016 at 12:15

    are you drunk?

      chad · 26/06/2016 at 12:16

      unfortunately no

        Starkingdom · 26/06/2016 at 12:23

        should rack up 200+ together

          chad · 26/06/2016 at 12:25

          hope so stark

            I N Pieman · 26/06/2016 at 12:51

            If they don't score 154 between them I'll be kicking the cat

    Grahame Lebroy · 26/06/2016 at 14:32

    Your home and hosed, feet up time to crack one

    Clarky99 · 28/06/2016 at 14:46

    Lol Ablett did it by himself πŸ™‚

mark · 26/06/2016 at 12:09

Is it worth trading toby greene for brett deledio. I have a full premo side except for brodie smith but im holding him until JJ returns to see his form

    sifi · 26/06/2016 at 12:50

    I don't think so. Toby in a purple patch and lids is only doing ok. I would get rid of smith after round 15 to a premo defender

    I N Pieman · 26/06/2016 at 12:56

    Green can pull some very good scores. Unless you have heaps of trades I'd hold onto him. B smith to JJ sounds a much better move. I'm planning to grab him for last upgrade

      mark · 26/06/2016 at 13:29

      Greene is just frustrating with his disposal efficiency. He could average 100+ if he could kick

sifi · 26/06/2016 at 12:48

I am doing everything I can to upgrade others but keep petracca and Adams after the byes.They are excellent to have as cover particularly with the DPP. Reckon those two with my spuds that are DPP will get the team through as with them I can cover def, mid and fwd. ATM good too but traded him.

CaPtKaOs · 26/06/2016 at 12:50

Last premo upgrade…… Sloane or Neale?

    Dont Blush Baby · 26/06/2016 at 12:53

    Same thoughts,also Deledio or wait for Barlow ?

      I N Pieman · 26/06/2016 at 13:22

      I'm going with Neale. Produces a lot of massive scores. If I get rid of Libba it will be for Neale

    Bolton's Blues · 26/06/2016 at 12:58


    Dont Blush Baby – Lids

    Grahame Lebroy · 26/06/2016 at 14:31


    Moustachio · 26/06/2016 at 14:54

    Neale may reduce a bit now that teams see he struggles with a hard tag

Keenbutclueless · 26/06/2016 at 13:16

This has been a hugely frustrating year. A mixture of bad luck and bad judgment all year.
Started with Lonergan instead of Libba (bad judgement)
Traded Rocky for Priddis Round 3 when Priddis was still 611k
Bought in M Murphy. Spudded it up for a few weeks than gets injured in first quarter. So I got 12. Meant I had Hewett on field the following week – concussion first quarter so I got 11.
Traded out Davis bought in MacPherson. Davis comes good, get nothing from MacPherson.
This week I traded out Menadue. Could have traded Tippa, but I already had 19 players and I genuinely thought he wouldn't make his break even. Cost me 100 points because I have Robinson (another first quarter concussion)

After my trades over the next week two weeks, I have quite a decent team (on paper). Shiel comes in for Gresham after the bye.

Def. Shaw, Docherty, Laird, Bartel, McVeigh, Rampe (Collins, Broad)
Mid. Danger, Hanners, Ward, Gray, Priddis, Sidebottom, Sloane, Shiel (Trengove, Stewart, Beech)
Ruck. Goldy, Martin (Wyatt)
Fwd. Martin, Deledio, Barlow, Hall, Robinson, Lycett (Petracca, Phillips)

I will still have 9 trades left.
But I am ranked around 47k.

I follow this site religiously. I research intensively. I only sideways traded Rocky for Priddis. (And maybe traded Wells too soon when he was injured)
Just one of those years, I guess, when you don't get reward for effort. It's frustrating because I used to be higher ranked when I was a mid price madness player who really didn't have a plan. Feels like the more I know, the worse I get.

Anyway, might make 3 or 4 finals out of the 10 leagues I play, so will try to get something out of the year.

Bring on 2017!

    Derek · 26/06/2016 at 13:48

    Sounds like my year. At least you didn't start with Lobbe

      Keenbutclueless · 26/06/2016 at 13:54

      Did my best (as did many others) to talk you out of that one, Derek! But you have to go with your gut – even if it lets you down from time to time

    The Ranger · 26/06/2016 at 13:53

    Sounds exactly like my 2015 mate, just one of those years where you can't catch a break, keep on keeping on, it'll come good.
    You've got a pretty decent team all things considered.

      Keenbutclueless · 26/06/2016 at 14:54

      Thanks Ranger. Appreciate the empathy! Good luck for the rest of the year!

    Grahame Lebroy · 26/06/2016 at 14:29

    Feel your pain mate. Through a mixture of bad picks and bad luck my team hasn't gone as well as I'd liked. Sometimes it all doesn't click right. Still pride is on the line for second half of this year and like u will have a strong team coming home trying to get to solid points finish, goodluck

      Keenbutclueless · 26/06/2016 at 14:54

      Thanks Grahame. Same to you!

    Neverweaken · 26/06/2016 at 16:46

    Don't stress. So much luck to this game. We have all been there. This is my first year of playing semi seriously. Even if I do only pick my team in the week before the season starts. I still make my mistakes. Chase points. (Selwood, Hall) Trade out players too early ( Wells, Bartel) Went from 74000 to 10000 but then Tippett and NicNat disaster. Sometime glad I'm not near the top. Way to much stress!!

ethan · 26/06/2016 at 13:16

leading by 93 with Ablett and and Hall
opposition has Gibson and the c on Ablett and also has Hall
Can I win?

    hedski · 26/06/2016 at 13:25

    Doubt it ethan

    warm n Fuzzy · 26/06/2016 at 15:46


Crowmagnon · 26/06/2016 at 13:36

I have a 211 point lead on my opponent. He has Gibson + Gaz c vs my Gaz no c.
I had planned to trade Brown to Broad in a week or two, Am I crazy to trade Brown to Joyce this week, to give me (slightly) more chance at a win?
Going for league only and after next week Joyce will be D8.
11 trades left kez, libba and Adams away from full premo.
Have to make a decision before 3.20 tick tock tick tock.

    Starkingdom · 26/06/2016 at 13:52

    Tricky one, if Gibbo tons up and Gaz goes big you're gone

      Hubba · 26/06/2016 at 20:45

      How'd you go ? Whatd you do ?

johnno2908 · 26/06/2016 at 14:00

Heres hoping Gaz pumps out a 130+. Strange supercoach week with many underperforming premos. Lets hope gary can buck the trend.

    Starkingdom · 26/06/2016 at 14:04

    2K+ score if he does, go champ

      Hubba · 26/06/2016 at 20:47

      …done . Long live the king

ethan · 26/06/2016 at 14:07

Thoughts community ranked inside the top 100 and going for it!

Def: Yarran, JJ, Murphy, KK, Dawson, Francis
Mid: Fyfe, Beams, Swan, Hodge, D.Swallow, Adams, O'Meara, B.Crouch
Ruck: Sandilands, Maric
Forward: Bennell, Roughead, S.Gray, Shultz, S.Morris, Conca

Need two more upgrades till full premo
My two trades this week
Francis to Trent Mckensie
Conca to Papley

    Keenbutclueless · 26/06/2016 at 14:09

    Need to trade out Hodge and bring in Tippett

    Starkingdom · 26/06/2016 at 14:12

    yeah I think get rockliff, waite, & even wells on your list for finals and your set

    Moustachio · 26/06/2016 at 14:57

    Trade Dippa in after his bye and you're set

    Starkingdom · 26/06/2016 at 14:59

    who's on the pine?

    warm n Fuzzy · 26/06/2016 at 15:47

    Looks like my team

Grahame Lebroy · 26/06/2016 at 14:22

Bring in Chris Dawes

Mitch · 26/06/2016 at 14:33

Bring in Brand or Joyce to free up cash. either with JS?

The Ranger · 26/06/2016 at 15:51

Behold the beauty of the Little Bald Master!
Go you good thing!

    Starkingdom · 26/06/2016 at 15:54

    150 looking good

FlyingHawkAssassin · 26/06/2016 at 15:58

Oh gosh the rookie trend continues. Brand on 30 at qtr time, however I doubt he will keep it up. Pity I have Brand on the bench instead of Bartels, Shaws, Brodies sub 50 scores

Gavin · 26/06/2016 at 16:11

Anyone thinking its time to move on from Hall?

    GoldRush · 26/06/2016 at 16:23

    Did it weeks ago, he's piised off for some reason and that was enough for me.

    Bolton's Blues · 26/06/2016 at 16:27

    tempting, but im waiting for a week or so after Dahl is back, his price will drop a stack so ill just swap them, then trade Kerridge to Zorko after next week, will have my team finished

    One Touch Wonder · 26/06/2016 at 16:32

    I'm not going to mention that it was my first SHARK MOVE of the year, and I also won't mention that I did warn everyone that he is poor against good teams.

      Davonaise · 26/06/2016 at 16:43

      You a fisherman One Touch?

        smart as s · 26/06/2016 at 18:22

        fate has it that he will be eaten by a SHARK one day πŸ™‚

      Moustachio · 26/06/2016 at 16:53

      Yeah but you like Walker Texas Ranger so pretty sure your shark moves are coming from randomly generated computer program

        smart as s · 26/06/2016 at 18:23

        dnt mention it lol

          One Touch Wonder · 26/06/2016 at 18:32

          2163 this week. No Hall, No Wells.

            Davonaise · 26/06/2016 at 19:16

            Man ur a joke and a half

            Starkingdom · 26/06/2016 at 19:18


        One Touch Wonder · 26/06/2016 at 19:44

        Tex had a poor game. Only managed 103.

The master · 26/06/2016 at 16:32

GAJ @ 95 at 1/2 time, Go captain go. Not happy with Hall or Ryan Davis (0)

    Davonaise · 26/06/2016 at 16:45

    Zero at half time takes me crack to when Birchall was -3 at half time 3 years ago if memory serves me well.

      Davonaise · 26/06/2016 at 16:46

      Back* no one take me crack you hear lol

CaPtKaOs · 26/06/2016 at 16:33

Dunno about Hall, but Im definitately finished with Davis

    Gavin · 26/06/2016 at 16:36

    Yep me to first trade I will be making this week

    Steeeve · 26/06/2016 at 18:27

    I already planned to get him out for Phillips. But was hoping he could at least make more money …

hedski · 26/06/2016 at 16:46

Come on Gibbo need 57+ points in second half to win $ league

Neverweaken · 26/06/2016 at 16:47

Looks like this week will be who has Ablett as C vs those who don't.

    Davonaise · 26/06/2016 at 16:50

    haha echo echo know that you would not know this but I made this claim yesterday about the Danger vs Ablett Captian choices. I had that feeling Ablett would be fine against Hawks, they don't tag plus GC are fresh

    Moustachio · 26/06/2016 at 16:54

    Bout damn time!

      Davonaise · 26/06/2016 at 17:17

      124 one qtr to go
      160+ is on the cards
      Ablett will go hardest now game still in balance

    Shake n bake · 26/06/2016 at 18:04

    I had it on Sloane so about 10pts diff still had Ablett in my side thou.

    tophawk · 26/06/2016 at 18:33

    I grabbed Sloane's 290 as VC. No worries.

Vatican · 26/06/2016 at 17:58

Your mission is complete Son of God

TRIGGER HAPPY · 26/06/2016 at 18:25

Gaz I don't have the words you bloody legend!
Big shout out to gibbo who redeemed last week's shocker.

Neverweaken · 26/06/2016 at 18:28

So how did we all go? 1776 for me. So a trip back down the rankings.

    Sammyboy · 26/06/2016 at 18:31

    2041, so a rise back up the rankings

      Mudguts · 26/06/2016 at 19:00

      2041 as well Sammyboy. Gotta be happy with that!

    Jess_coach · 26/06/2016 at 18:32

    Exact same score here weaken. We'll drop abit depending on where you are

      Neverweaken · 26/06/2016 at 18:40

      I'm sitting around 10k mark. Even last week I clawed another 1000 rise. Hopefully not to bad this week

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 26/06/2016 at 18:32

    Couldn't have possibly asked for any more.
    With zorko and wells on the pine had only 16 on the park.
    13 tons, 3 rooks and Shaws 50.
    Gaz as capt.
    Finished 1850.

    Blessed · 26/06/2016 at 18:33

    in the race to the bottom.I love Gaz

    The Ranger · 26/06/2016 at 18:40

    1888. I was hoping for a + 2K score this week but I suppose I have to be reasonably happy considering I ended up with only 18 on the field including Bartel and Shaw who both spudded up.

      Grahame Lebroy · 26/06/2016 at 19:08

      Only 1795 this week for me, my ranking is going the wrong way ……

    Starkingdom · 26/06/2016 at 19:14

    2065 nice..

      The master · 26/06/2016 at 19:23

      1915 for me, hopefully going up a little.

        Dean · 26/06/2016 at 19:55

        1881 for me I just wish I didn't change my mind, I had my VC on Danger & C on GAJ but a minute before Collingwoods game I chose to put the VC on pendles. That cost me 98 points, would have been on 1979 which would have seen me slightly go up in rank but with only 1881 i will drop

          D-Train · 27/06/2016 at 12:21

          No, it only cost you 49 points. It would only be double if you didn't have GAJ at all.

          Scenario A – GAJ as captain, with Pendles and Danger:
          159 + 159 + 87 + 110 = 515

          Scenario B – Danger as captain (I think that's what you ended up doing), with Pendles and GAJ:
          110 + 110 + 87 + 159 = 466

    Shake n bake · 26/06/2016 at 19:26

    1938 for me but most important won all my leagues.

      Derek · 26/06/2016 at 20:09

      you having a good year, playing well.

    Gavin · 26/06/2016 at 19:36


Jacob · 26/06/2016 at 18:31

Was ranked 900tj for the week last week scoring well and now got 1985 this week so boosting up the ranks hopefully. Bit annoyed that I had me aide stuck on my bench with 130, would've hit 2070 otherwise

    Jacob · 26/06/2016 at 18:32


    tophawk · 26/06/2016 at 18:41

    You should be close to being in the top 500 with that score, especially after you backed up from a big score last week. Good stuff.

Davonaise · 26/06/2016 at 18:33

1815 followed up by a 1836 last week so it's very par so far for me

tophawk · 26/06/2016 at 18:38

Ended up with 1965 this week. Pretty satisfied with that. Enough to win all my leagues. I managed to snare Sloane's VC score so luckily did not loose too much ground on Coaches who had Gazza as captain. One more bye round and then its blue skies! Thank Christ for that.

hedski · 26/06/2016 at 18:40

1774 with Danger captain and munching a jam filled bastard(Zorko).
Nearly went the Libba/SMitch move as written above but stuck fat to plan…..Ah well.
Woulda got 1926 and beat the Bunnies by 4 points (ya got lucky Derek).

    Derek · 26/06/2016 at 19:57

    Thanks man. I've strung a few wins together and might still make the finals.

    It helped you only had 17 on field.

      hedski · 26/06/2016 at 20:11

      Yeah struggling in that league doing well for points but can't seem to get wins on the board. Keep chargin to finals Derek.

Rick Grimes · 26/06/2016 at 18:44

2046 and still lost my h2h. Haha

    tdesmaele · 26/06/2016 at 18:50


    Neverweaken · 26/06/2016 at 18:55

    Gotta hate that.

Anyone seen higher than 2088?

    hedski · 26/06/2016 at 18:54

    2080 best I've seen

    Juzzy · 26/06/2016 at 19:14

    2069 the highest in my leagues.

      Davonaise · 26/06/2016 at 19:26

      2050 in mine
      Though Spud Touch Wonder Shark fishing blunder claims he got 2163

        Starkingdom · 26/06/2016 at 19:29

        17 players ton & Gaz Capt. still not enough

    Derek · 26/06/2016 at 19:58

    I got done by a 2130

      Derek · 26/06/2016 at 20:10

      sarah and her texinator Team scored 2113. Well done sarah

Tommo09 · 26/06/2016 at 18:52

Absolutely shocking
Enough said
Next week please

In the Nick of time · 26/06/2016 at 18:56

1881. Gutted. Wells did me no favours, Hall, Bartel, Pendles and Shaw really cost me as I was looking at scraping over 2000 this round. Danger as Captain and Pendles as VC. Trying not to regret my choices as I know these two will bounce back in their next game! Bring on 20 on field in Round 15!

Juzzy · 26/06/2016 at 19:12

Woo Hoo. 2053 this week.
1700 overall. Hoping to jump up a bit this week.
I definately owe Menadue and GAJ a beer.

    Starkingdom · 26/06/2016 at 19:25

    Pack your bags, you moving up

    Derek · 26/06/2016 at 20:10

    good score. well done.

Starkingdom · 26/06/2016 at 19:21

the poo was Due

hedski · 26/06/2016 at 19:47

Probly better the other way round this week!!

    Derek · 26/06/2016 at 20:14

    i'll have 20 on park next week, plus Menadue or Phillips on the FWD bench

A.J · 26/06/2016 at 20:21

You know it's a weird round when menadue is your 2nd highest scorer

    Derek · 26/06/2016 at 21:19

    I had 19 on field this week, it was Shaws effort that wasn't counted. That is a weird week

Iamme · 26/06/2016 at 20:22

Wow 2077 was the average score… seems really high?

    Hubba · 26/06/2016 at 20:56

    Don't know about that .. i got 1902 and it tells me top 3%

A.J · 26/06/2016 at 20:23

Trade out Ruggles or Brodie Smith? Or trade neither? atm ruggles outscoring brodie, plus would be loopholing one of them with collins most weeks

    Derek · 26/06/2016 at 20:50

    Cats have their bye this week

Iamme · 26/06/2016 at 20:23

I Take that back that is my average score

    Moustachio · 27/06/2016 at 09:05

    Upon closer inspection, these are loafers

Derek · 26/06/2016 at 20:30

Managed 1922, kicking myself for not getting Sloane after recommending him to everyone last week.

    Dont Blush Baby · 26/06/2016 at 20:34

    Me the same , pulled out last minute thinking that the Roos would tag hard,

    VC on Priddis this week will be popular IMO

      Derek · 26/06/2016 at 20:43

      i was going to trade Menadue to Sloane, but just had this feeling that Menadue would kick 2 first quarter goals, and maybe score around 130, so traded Stewart instead. It was just a gut feeling πŸ˜‰

        Dont Blush Baby · 26/06/2016 at 20:59

        Ha Ha,I only kept him because he was my swinging DPP when I bring Phillips in next week. I pulled the wrong rein and bought in Pendles instead on Sloane but thats SC, there is a lot of luck involved but not this year.

    tophawk · 26/06/2016 at 20:59

    I grabbed Sloanedog after checking out his price v recent performances. At a "value for money" 554K, he was the perfect fit for my midfield. Whacked the big VC on him too which I fortunately took. Helped me a lot to rise to 315 overall.

    This week 2 trades only. Stuffed up with Kade Stewart, and traded him out for Tom Phillips, despite still making 50 odd K on him.

    Now I have a DDP swing to move Phillips to the forward line and Sam Kerridge to the midfield.

    Sorry Kerro……… have to make way this week for god.

    Kerridge out, and the master Gary Ablett is back in.


      Derek · 26/06/2016 at 21:13

      stewart goes the same way as McPherson, can't keep him, good move, no free loaders if you are ranked that high.

      What will your team look like

        tophawk · 26/06/2016 at 22:02

        Thanks mate.

        It's coming to the pointy end of the season now. Trades are now becoming a "commodity". Most trades left from here will be utilised for injuries. I still have a couple of manouvres to execute in the backline, but otherwise, I am now full premo.

        My team is called "Tophawks".

        Let me know your thoughts.


          Derek · 26/06/2016 at 23:47

          Can't see whole team, won't show bench

      The Ranger · 26/06/2016 at 21:19

      Nice one TH! Chuffed for you mate, go for gold!

        tophawk · 26/06/2016 at 21:54

        Thanks Ranger! Still hanging tough.

        I have been bold and traded hard over the last month. Now it is time to consolidate.

        Cheers mate

          Shake n bake · 27/06/2016 at 09:44

          Your on top in 1 of my leagues you have been scoring very well of late. Keep it up hope I won't be to far behind!

Neverweaken · 26/06/2016 at 20:38

OMG. With 1776 still climbed 600 spots. Cracked the 10k barrier. Position 9680. Highest I've ever been

    Derek · 26/06/2016 at 21:17

    Well done. Top 10k is good. Bit of planning aim for top 5k finish. Set you up for a big breakout year next year.

      Neverweaken · 26/06/2016 at 21:28

      At least this week I will have 18 on the field. So hopefully get better. Trading out McPherson for Phillips. Gives me 19 on the filed but only 6 trades left.

    hedski · 26/06/2016 at 21:19

    I had 1774 and dropped @300 spots.
    @3700 now.

Michel · 26/06/2016 at 21:08

Is it silly to go keays to mathieson this week?

    Derek · 26/06/2016 at 21:14

    Get Phillips instead

    Northernsoul74 · 27/06/2016 at 09:41

    Silly, you've missed Mathiesons first price rise.

George · 26/06/2016 at 21:21

1999 for me also, which moved me up 13753 places, albeit from a long way back.

Derek · 26/06/2016 at 21:26

i see that the early leader "BURST" has dropped down to 52nd.

    Redgumwon · 26/06/2016 at 21:51

    I think you may have been on the money earlier Derek when you said a lot of the leaders have used a lot of trades early.

      Northernsoul74 · 27/06/2016 at 09:40

      The winner will still come from someone that traded hard early and will hold on. I'm like Derek like to hold trades back but it's proven that people that do that are usually too far back.

        Derek · 27/06/2016 at 10:54

        i think i'll be changing my tactics a bit for next year. i'll look at chacing points more in the early rounds. This year i sat Rocky and BCrouch on the bench for 4 weeks, that is ok later in the year (ie laird) but early on it is poor play

    tophawk · 26/06/2016 at 22:24

    hehehehe. Just noticed that too. His bubble has "BURST" to the scheizenhousen. LOL

      Derek · 26/06/2016 at 23:41

      Still plenty of weeks to go. I think winner can still come from outside top 100.

        Billioux · 27/06/2016 at 01:59

        called it 5 weeks ago, when trade counter was up,, u could see his trades. Ridiculous.

    Moustachio · 27/06/2016 at 09:08

    They say that the candle that burns twice as bright, burns for half as long

Miney · 26/06/2016 at 21:28

I only have 510k to spend on a midfielder…who should I get ? Thoughts community ? Leaning towards Sam Mitchell or Callan ward

    Nick · 26/06/2016 at 21:47

    Seb Ross – POD. GUN.

    Otherwise Callan Ward. Mitchell likely to be rested as the season goes on.

    Kev · 26/06/2016 at 22:42

    Ward after his bye

Bolton's Blues · 26/06/2016 at 21:29

Kerridge, Petracca or Hall to Phillips?

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 26/06/2016 at 21:37


    Derek · 26/06/2016 at 21:52

    I wouldn't be surprised if Hall finishes well. Suns have a really good draw now, including the next two at home.

      Bolton's Blues · 26/06/2016 at 21:57

      Kerridge BE of 105 scares me.

    Leeds17 · 27/06/2016 at 05:59

    Assume you've a lot playing this week as 3 aren't on their byes.

johnny_z · 26/06/2016 at 21:53

Scored 2059 thought I would've made a lot more ground then 40 points on the leader. But got to be happy with my ranking 223 is my pb. Still a glimmer of hope!

    tophawk · 26/06/2016 at 22:32

    I am on your tail Johny! Wow. That is good. I am ranked 315……I now see I have some serious work to do πŸ˜‰

    Good luck mate.

    I hope one of the Jock Reynolds boys wins!

    johnny_z · 26/06/2016 at 23:00

    Haha yeah gunna be tough wish I was more aggressive with trades early, everyone's teams looking heavy!

    How you looking with trades tophawk?

    Moustachio · 27/06/2016 at 09:11

    Your maths is bad, I got 2 points more than you and made up about 75 points on first place ^^

      johnny_z · 27/06/2016 at 09:23

      I was 669 off last week now I'm 630 off the leader. Simple maths to me haha

Juzzy · 26/06/2016 at 21:54

Having a decent M9 plus Phillips and Joyce on the midfield bench is looking like a juicy option.

    Derek · 26/06/2016 at 23:35

    I'd be looking at a M9/F7 to swing with Phillips

      Juzzy · 27/06/2016 at 01:16

      Somehow ended up with Petracca and Menadue stuck on the fwd bench with no mid swing.
      Phillips is a godsend.

MOC · 26/06/2016 at 22:01

I'm smelling a massive pod move after the byes… In comes L.HODGE. Thoughts?

    Sloanedog · 26/06/2016 at 22:36

    Very ballsy… I like it. Could pay off big time, but could go balls up all the same.

TRIGGER HAPPY · 26/06/2016 at 22:04

D6 last spot to fill.
Was gonna go ruggles – mcveigh this week but ruggles is avg 85 over the last 3 weeks and seemed to have found his niche.
Cats using him alot more out of defence.
Has mcveigh found his mojo or was that last game a one off.
As rd15 bye heavy does give me another player on the park
Take the hit this week and let ruggs moo abit more and trade for bartel in a couple of weeks?
That low score gotta cause a significant price drop.
Currently have $470k to spend on a defender.
Current def is: Shaw, laird, doc, simmo, gibbo, ruggles. (Collins, brand)

    Moustachio · 27/06/2016 at 09:19

    Am having same thoughts. Want to upgrade final def slot but Ruggles with a decent amount more cash to make

    Northernsoul74 · 27/06/2016 at 09:37

    I'm waiting for JJ to return in a couple of weeks.

    Looks too complete to be true honestly. Full premo with cover on all lines?

    Juzzy · 27/06/2016 at 01:30

    If this team is real then I am backing you to win the whole thing.
    If it is not then congrats also for throwing in a few players like Smith that have us thinking that maybe it is legit.

Davonaise · 26/06/2016 at 22:45

On the plus side u need one round where if you can out score every say top 50 team by 150+ pts that would make you a contender

Steeeve · 26/06/2016 at 23:38

With 4 trades left yes that is very silly

Steeeve · 26/06/2016 at 23:41

Only going to field 17 at this stage next round. But I have Stewart and MacPherson both doing nothing. Any rookie options to swap them to who play this week? Or just take the donut?

    Juzzy · 27/06/2016 at 01:33

    Phillips and Joyce.
    Wouldn't bet on them for the long term though.
    Depends on how many trades you have left.

tuxCS · 27/06/2016 at 00:00

A pretty average score of 1851 this week, I'm not upset really, I'm just trying to stay consistent this year. Puts me at a rank of 3200+ which is the highest I've ever been. Was originally aiming for inside 5k but now I've changed that to inside 1k, hopefully I can do it πŸ™‚ 3 trades this week, putting me (with only 4 trades for injuries left) at a debatable full premium. Only two players are a bit on the edge, them being: Hall and Liberatore.

    Bolton's Blues · 27/06/2016 at 00:08

    Similar position to you tux
    only doing Kerridge down to Phillips this week,
    then Petracca to Zorko and Libba to Pendles/Hanners
    Then hopefully just cripps to Pendles/Hanners
    leaves me full premo (the jury is still out on Hall) with 3 injury trades

    Derek · 27/06/2016 at 10:56

    good going. inside top 1k would be a 'break-out' year for you

Luke · 27/06/2016 at 01:12

Merrett or Barlow???

    marcus · 27/06/2016 at 11:36

    merrett because barlow has a bye

Tommo09 · 27/06/2016 at 06:54

Hall or Kerridge out this week?
The other will probably go next week
Am planning to get Riewoldt this week and Zorko next week
Is Zorko still a must have? Or are there better options?

    johnno2908 · 27/06/2016 at 07:08

    Im keeping hall. He will be my f7/m9 after next week. He is only worth $400k. Looked to have less tape on the body yesterday so hopefully will come good. Kerridge has done his job and made plenty of cash so move him on this week or next.

    Derek · 27/06/2016 at 10:56

    keep Hall. Suns have a great run home.

johnno2908 · 27/06/2016 at 07:12

Ranked 70th overall now moved up 100 places, but lost a couple of points on the overall leader. Finally bringing in goldy this week. Was going to do it next week, but may as well utilise the 3 trades this week. Petracca to hanneberry next week laves me with 7 trades for rest of the year and 1 off full premo in defense.

    Derek · 27/06/2016 at 10:58

    sensational position to be in. well done.

    Starkingdom · 27/06/2016 at 11:59

    Good luck on the run home

Mr Sarcasm · 27/06/2016 at 09:17

Tempting to put the C on Menadue this week. Where did that come from?

    I N Pieman · 27/06/2016 at 09:39

    I'm not sure. Think its a perfect illustration of how bad Brissy is. But I wouldn't be surprised if he doubled his seasons points in one game.

      Derek · 27/06/2016 at 10:59

      i didn't watch the first half, but i saw the second. I think he had 5 touches and was unsighted,

        Davonaise · 27/06/2016 at 11:27

        And got 53 pts for it -.- bloody supercock

        Big G · 27/06/2016 at 11:27

        He got 2 goals. Someone at CD must have had him in their side this week…

          Starkingdom · 27/06/2016 at 11:46

          If you look at how champ data gives points they love accuracy, inside 50's, and score assists. Menadue was all of the above, his second half was 100% accurate and kicked a goal. I was surprise so investigated, I don't think it looks good but they're the basics.

          Southern S · 27/06/2016 at 13:49

          Yep that's why he's scored so well all year, the system is corrupt for sure……………….

Ben · 27/06/2016 at 09:31

Who should i get as a keeper for kerridge out of franklin or aaron hall?

    Northernsoul74 · 27/06/2016 at 09:34

    A lot are are wondering whether to keep Hall so I wouldn't be bringing him in.

      I N Pieman · 27/06/2016 at 11:32

      Agree Northern. Seriously questioning whether to get rid of him.

    Southern S · 27/06/2016 at 13:48

    You are considering trading Aaron Hall in?

    *Mind blown*

Alan · 27/06/2016 at 09:33

I only have 4 trades left but full premo should i go keays to mathieson and the kerridge to n riewoldt leaving me with 2 left or just going kerridge to franklin leaving me with 3? Thanks

    CaPtKaOs · 27/06/2016 at 10:25

    Neither. Hold your trades. You will need them.

    Derek · 27/06/2016 at 11:00

    hold them all

Big G · 27/06/2016 at 09:39

Thoughts on broad's js?

    Ryan · 27/06/2016 at 09:50

    Very 50/50. Hardwick likes bringing in guys like Chaplin and Batchelor was injured.

    Kev · 27/06/2016 at 09:53

    Probably not great as he was a late in for Griffiths. Didn't play badly though. I'd wait till he is on the bubble

    gator59 · 27/06/2016 at 10:26

    He may get a holiday via the MRP for the knock on Robinson

I N Pieman · 27/06/2016 at 10:09

2052 not bad. Climbed from 1381 to 542 overall. Now how to deal with round 15. Downgrades don't look good

    johnno2908 · 27/06/2016 at 10:17

    Good score. Im going to bring in joyce in defense. If he plays, great. If he doesnt, perfect loophole for collins and ruggles until I can upgrade one of them. Phillips is the obvious upgrade but I brought him in last week

    Derek · 27/06/2016 at 11:02

    nice work pieman, what has been reason for your good score this year? share your thoughts (i'm assuming you didn't start with lobbe)

      I N Pieman · 27/06/2016 at 11:21

      I picked off Sloane a while ago for a big POD. He's been really good ever since. Also picked off Boyd under 500 when no one had him. Been very good. Started with Danger & Selwood. Started with Shaw. And not too many disasters. Cashed out a few rookies too early & now that's going to come back & bite.

Neverweaken · 27/06/2016 at 10:19

Thoughts on montagna as a forward option for Kerridge. Then next week turn Petracca and Adams into Deledio and rookie.

    MOC · 27/06/2016 at 10:24

    I like it. Both good options.

Andrew · 27/06/2016 at 10:33

Montagna or Deliedio for my last fwd spot??

    In the Nick of time. · 27/06/2016 at 10:35

    Montagna for easiest run home. Most people finalising their teams will jump on Lids I would imagine.

Alex · 27/06/2016 at 10:36

Petracca-T Phillips

Next week

Good Trades?

    Nick · 27/06/2016 at 10:42

    Shoving Collins out already? Otherwise looks good. Depending on your number of trades left I'd be looking to jump the gun and bring in your premiums early unless you're looking for those rookie downgrades to be your bench cover for the rest of the season. Hall will lose around 20K I'd imagine so not a bad idea to get Merrett in now.

    Bolton's Blues · 27/06/2016 at 10:45

    if youve held Hall this long, id stick with him, i watched the game yesterday, he was getting his hands on it a bit more, but Eade kept stuffing around and chucking him at HF, he needs MID TIME RODNEY!!!

    Gavin · 27/06/2016 at 10:45

    I dont think so, why would you trade collins to hipwood? Collins and ruggles both have low BE with cash to be made. Trade Hall to Phillips and free up cash and then you can get who ever you want after that, if you want? Then you could bring in Merret this week? Hipwood only played 1 game.

Nick · 27/06/2016 at 10:39

Really stuck here. Forward line looked alright a couple of weeks ago but with Wells and Dahlhaus injured I'm doubting myself.

FWD Line: Wells, Dahlhaus, Hall, Martin, Montagna, Kerridge. EMG: Rose, Petracca. I'd be happy to have Kerridge or Petracca as F6 if need be due to a shortage of trades. THE ISSUE: Do I sit and wait any longer on Hall? Should I bring in Zorko a week early for him?

Mids, RUC and Backline are full premo already. Thanks team!

    Gavin · 27/06/2016 at 10:53

    I wouldnt think so, mine as well try to get Halls points this week and just get Zorko next week. Doesnt seem to make sense bringing in a none playing player for a playing one?

      Nick · 27/06/2016 at 13:25

      Only for the fact that the 20/30K he might drop could be used towards future trades?

Jeremy · 27/06/2016 at 10:49

Is lance franklin a good option this week?

    Gavin · 27/06/2016 at 10:50

    Only if you want him in your final team?

marcus · 27/06/2016 at 11:33

got 7 trades left 16 playing this week and one last spot until full premo in my defence. is it worth downgrading byrnejones to alir alir and then upgrading Collins to McVeigh (only player I can afford worth getting) or hold and keep Collins as my D6 for the rest of the season

    Starkingdom · 27/06/2016 at 11:49

    Marcus, I would hold trades, Collins is a D6 if he keeps up form.

Davonaise · 27/06/2016 at 11:37

To Johnny_z you now need to have a serious look at the top 100 teams, do your homework brother…
Look for the commen place premo' they have and yourself then write down your pod players you have that they don't if any. If not you need to be bold now fin atleast 2 players who you think that can bring it home for you.
A few examples Z.Williams, J.Reiwoldt or N.Reiwoldt ect

I know it's hard bro but wish you all the luck and hope you can get inside to top 50! With a few rounds to go

    johnny_z · 27/06/2016 at 13:08

    Cheers mate! I've tried to change it up a little with Sloane and McVeigh last couple of weeks. But yeah definitely need to find the Docherty type pick for the remainder of the year

    johnny_z · 27/06/2016 at 13:57

    What % of teams would we consider a Pod this time of year?

      Southern S · 27/06/2016 at 14:27

      15% and under I reckon, of course it would be ideal to have them under 10% but that may result in more unreliable options.

Hall or Kerrige to go?

Anyone know Montagna's B/E?

    I would go kerridge and Montagna be is 53

      The Beard · 27/06/2016 at 12:37

      Wait Montagna's B/E is only 53?

        Cameron · 27/06/2016 at 12:42

        Yeah I reckon its the perfect time to get him in this week

      Southern S · 27/06/2016 at 13:46

      Yep only Kerridge +35k > Montagna

      Then you get a player averaging 86.5 > ave 100.77.

      I'm locking that in, only 15% ownership for Montag too.

The Beard · 27/06/2016 at 12:11

Merrett's B/E?

Derek · 27/06/2016 at 12:16

my rucks have been my downfall this year.

Currently have Gawn & Blicavs.

The Blitz has not been great and has dropped $100k. Is it time, he has his bye this week, to got to SMartin?

    Millicent · 27/06/2016 at 12:44

    But Derek, SMartin also has his bye this week, Jacobs perhaps?
    A question for you. I am simply going for my league win. My defence is my weakest line which comprises Docherty, Shaw, McVeigh, KK, Rich, O MacDonald, Collins and B Williams. Rich annoys me with his inability to shake a tag despite his leadership role at the Bears. I planned to trade his this week and with $60K I can get Laird or Rance or should I wait for JJ in a week or two. Or save my 11 trades. I have 21 players this week.

      Derek · 27/06/2016 at 15:05

      i have rich plus his twin BSmith. I started with them both hopeful that one might become a year long keeper. if not, they should at least fill a hole there and should be my last upgrades.

      The last upgrades time has come and neither are top 6 defender material. At best i could keep them one at D7.

      i didn't get either of the carlton boys, thinking that they were overachieving and will crash back to earth. I think i'll get Simpson and rance. Question is who to trade out, especially now that Collins has shown some form.

      I won't keep Collins, but i do need to hold for another few weeks to get full cash increase.

      Rich to Rance or Simpson this week and Collins to the other in a few weeks. keeping BSmith at D7.

      I think JJ will be slowly back to form and won't be a top 6 player, has missed alot of footy.

        Millicent · 27/06/2016 at 15:23

        Thanks Derek. I cannot afford Simpson so I will probably make one trade to Laird – BE 81 Projected score 94. If I change my mind it will be Rance – BE 107 Projected score 80. Good luck to you.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 27/06/2016 at 12:58

      too normal! lol, but i know you are right.

Gavin · 27/06/2016 at 12:37

The pickins for rookies and players this week is slim. Not sure its worth trading at all this round?

    Bolton's Blues · 27/06/2016 at 13:00

    pros – pies suck so his JS will be decent and has DPP

      Gavin · 27/06/2016 at 13:12

      I already have him

hedski · 27/06/2016 at 12:38

Thoughts on these trades community.
Kerridge ==> Cheap mid/fwd loop.
B.Smith ==> The Doch
Libba ==> Treloar (POD?)

Team will be
Shaw Simpson Doch (Rug)
Gibbo Laird Sucklingpig (S.Col)

Danger Gaz Priddis (Trengove)
Parker Jelwood Gray (Jansen)
Treloar Zaha (m/f loop)

Goldy Gawn (Loersch)

Zorko Dusty Barlow (Petracca)
Hall Montagna Chad (Phillips)

Will leave 4 trades and $137k.
Plan to upgrade Tracca in a few weeks to Lids/Dollhouse put Hall m9/d7 and then try to convince myself 3 trades will get me thru.

    Grahame Lebroy · 27/06/2016 at 13:18

    Nice team Hedski, I reckon those trades look good. Treloar could be a nice POD for the run home. Another to consider is Sloane. I too am looking at Dahlhaus for Tracca in a few weeks should be able to do it for less than 100k

      hedski · 27/06/2016 at 14:01

      Cheers Grahame looked at Sloanedog but extra $60k odd will help with last upgrade.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 27/06/2016 at 13:26

    Think a few teams will be looking at the tracca – dahl trade. I know I am.
    be very handy for injuries which are sure to hit.
    Decent looking team, a couple of pods which is always good to see.
    If SoSoS is named this week – cant be too far away surely?
    you could go kedge to SoSoS and flick Phillips to the mids creating your DPP unless you want a non playing DPP as your m/f loop?
    not sure there is much else in mid/fwd rooks this week?

      hedski · 27/06/2016 at 13:59

      Is SSoS mid/fwd?
      ATM I've gone a non player (Beech- Crows lots of late games)
      Also thinking of keeping Tracca as m9/f7 and upgrading Zaha to someone more consistent not sure yet.

Big G · 27/06/2016 at 13:27

Sorry to get ahead of myself but the Bye weeks are so annoying with the games on Thursday.. Does anyone know of sound downgrade options this week besides Philips? With the week allowing 3 trades, I really want to nail the trades. I can only think of Hipwood as another good downgrade option.

    I N Pieman · 27/06/2016 at 13:34

    Broad played his first game for the Tigers on the weekend. Scored 66. Don't rate his JS but. Not even sure he will play this week. The other is Joyce from GC who went up 20k this week but is still 122k with Mid-def status. If he plays this week it will be Keays to Joyce for me

      Big G · 27/06/2016 at 14:22

      Very helpful – cheers. Joyce's 30 might be good to replace mitch brown's 40 and allow some good upgrade's. Hoping he gets a gig this week.

The Ranger · 27/06/2016 at 13:43

Can't decide whether to go Keays down to Joyce to open up the def/mid swing or go Kerridge to Parker?
Got 7 trades left after doing three this week. The first option leaves me with some funds to play with the latter leaves me next to nothing.

Merret or Montagna for last forward spot?

    i have both, if I had to choose I would go Joey Montagna. The saints are rolling and they have a juicy run home with plenty of games at ES. I'm a cats fan, I watched them run us around at ES, made us look too big and slow, they can knock any team off at that venue.
