PatchCoachKingsLogoI am shattered. My score last week was a number that belongs in history books while talking about the early stages of the Spanish conquest of the treacherous jungles of South America

Unlike Hernan Cortes and the Conquistadors, I fought beasts far more treacherous than Aztec warriors, the beasts of the jungle and scurvy – late outs, Sunday 22s and an underperforming Paddy Dangerfield all brought me a shocking, awful, shameful score.

What rubbed salt into the would were my trades. I flicked Shannon Hurn, only for him to ton up last night.

My centrepiece trade from last week was Connor Menadue to Michael Barlow. I weighed up the shame of bringing him back in, I looked him square in the eye and said “it’s not your fault Ross hates you, mate”.

“Come home, Michael,” I told him.

He came in close, and during our embrace he whispered into my ear “I’ve got a broken finger and I’m out for a month. You’ve been pranked, bro. SUCKED IN!”

I told Connor Menadue to get out of my team weeks ago, but he hung around like a bad smell, tormenting me through the byes.

And finally, as I give him the eviction notice and throw his stuff to the kerb, forgoing the last two months’ rent just to get him OUT, I see him with a wad of cash stuffed in his back pocket as he walks towards the bus stop.

YOU SON OF A [muffled screaming]



Firstly, for those of us who entered the Play At Home CoachKings game last night or have ever tried the game ….. Jock & Higgo –  TAKE A BOW. A most enjoyable one-game experience and hats off to the eventual winner. I’ll be trying my luck again next week.





In SuperCoach terms, this week has been reasonably nice to us this week with team selections – there’s very little on the news front that is troubling.

Some may be inconvenienced by Bailey Williams and Josh Dunkley finding themselves on the outer at the Dogs.

Sam Gray’s omission shouldn’t trouble anyone, as hopefully he’s been traded by now, and anyone mystifyingly still hanging on to Clayton Oliver needs to cash him in.

The big news this week is all in the “ins”. Jason Johanissen returns from his hamstring injury which will be huge for the Dogs. Give him a week or two to make sure he gets through games – he hasn’t played a VFL game yet on his return.

Saints defender Tom Lee is back, as is Kade Kolodjashnij, for those unfortunate enough to have him lingering in their backlines.


Also making news is the debut of the Son of the Son of Serge, Jack Silvagni. I’m not a huge fan of Jack’s name not starting with an S, but I think I speak for most when saying seeing a third generation player – and third in a line of legends – is a great look for the game.

Especially when their last name isn’t Hird, but we’ll let sleeping dogs lie.


Michael bloody Barlow. Son of the aforementioned sleeping dog. If you’ve got more than 8 trades, feel free to move him on and absolve yourself of any guilt. If you’re in my boat, with less than 8 trades, we’re gonna have to stick fat.

Tom Liberatore – is he a premo? In strict definitions, no. He won’t get anywhere near the top 10 averaging midfielders for the year and probably won’t average over 105. BUT, again with the trades thing. If you can spare the trades, you can spare flicking him. If you don’t, he won’t make a bad M8 or M9.

Daniel Wells has been brought up as a trade out option, not so much for his output as for his injuries. Hold. He may get a rest towards the end of the year, but I reckon you’ll gain so much more from keeping him.

Sam Kerridge will not be a keeper, despite being a jet. He will be brilliant cover if you need a swing man to provide M9/F7 positions, but he won’t be a starter. I’d probably recommend taking the cash and running, depending on your set-up. Christian Petracca is in the same boat.

Aaron Hall has dropped off, and Rocket has sent him back to fantasy irrelevance. I’m SO annoyed I went him over Merrett at the start of the year, and while Merrett is still in my side, unfortunately so is Aaron. I want to flick him, but I can’t. Hopefully I’ll be able to consign him to the bench.


Eddie Murphy’s

-82 – Tom Phillips
-37 – Rhys Mathieson
-31 – Sam Reid (GWS)
-24 – Kade Stewart
-22 – Jack Trengove
-20 – Connor Menadue
-12 – Eric Hipwood
-11 – Johnathon Marsh
-1 – Stefan Martin
7 – Tom Lee

Dan Aykroyds

187 – Heath Shaw
170 – Paddy Dangerfield
170 – Dan Hannebery
166 – Scott Pendlebury
165 – Tom Mitchell
142 – Matthew Boyd
138 – Jeremy Howe
137 – Matt Priddis


Well that didn’t go too well last week, did it? Despite not tagging Danger, he was restricted to 110 points by Alan Richardson’s men. Scott Pendlebury was almost silent in the Pies’ win.

Those of you thoughtful enough to have the C on Gary Ablett, bravo, and that’s exactly where the C or VC should be going this week.

My gut isn’t keen on Max Gawn this week against Sauce, and the other McCaptainface from Sunday’s game, Rory Sloane, will likely cop attention from Bernie Vince.

Dustin Martin is in a rich run of form at the moment and currently has my VC, and you could take a punt on Robbie Gray refreshing himself post-bye, although I wouldn’t bet on it.

If you’ve got the time or the agile fingers to make the switch from Dan Hannebery into Gaz, I applaud you – and would do so myself if I had the time or, for that matter, Dan Hannebery – but if you’re stuck in line at a polling station (#democracy, eh?) late in the day, fending off How To Vote cards you never know what might happen.

Speaking of the election – I have seen no mention anywhere of the parties proposing to up the number of Supercoach trades. In fact, it’s impossible to tell the major parties apart on Supercoach policy.


Unless I can be convinced there are other causes worth voting for, I will VOTE 1 GARY ABLETT JNR to Make My Supercoach Side Great Again.

That’s all from me, folks – have a ripper weekend.

SNEAKY MIDNIGHT UPDATE: As SCAddict (among others) have commented below, Jack Trengove is OUT of the Melbourne side for Sunday. Not injured, but dropped. Paul Roos twisting the knife here.

Word is Jack Viney is under an injury cloud so we may yet see Trengove come back in, but at this stage I wouldn’t count on it. Gutted.

always my favourite article of the week. Thanks Patch


Mine also good stuff patch



Big M

Oh the dilemma
to get rid of DBJ or to keep him, not sure
already full premo in defence, so it seems too much $$$ to have sitting on the bench


Love the sc policy line reminds me I need to vote tomorrow. Damn. Cheers Patch always entertaining.


I wasted my VC on Josh j Kennedy last night with a terrible 70 which especially annoying because it is was against Essendon :((


It was a 70 or a 170 from him, I'd have been surprised if it was in the middle mate. That's what the VC's for!


Always love the Simpson references and your articles Patch!

Need some advice mate and the community…

Have only had Tippa play last night (I have 18 exactly to field this Rd) and he didn't fair too well.

I currently have 8 trades left and 40k left in the kitty.

My team:

DEF: Shaw (BYE), Simpson, Docherty, Bartel (BYE), Laird, AMT (Collins (BYE), Tucker (BYE))

MID: Pendles, Ablett, Hannebery, Ward (BYE), Libba, Wines, Menadue, Trengrove (Danger (BYE), Jansen (BYE), DMacPherson)

RUCK: Gawn, Goldy (BYE) (Wyatt)

FWD: Martin, Barlow (BYE & injured), Deledio, Kerridge, Hall, Petracca (Wells (BYE), Zorko (BYE))

Was thinking due to my lack of trades I could hold off this week due to a low number of trades remaining for finals in my leagues, but at the same time it is really tempting to go Kerridge – Montagna, who has bottomed out now in price, and has a great run of opposition teams coming up.

So should I go for Option 1 in make this upgrade, or Option 2 hold my trades and look to make my last upgrades after this Bye has gone past since I'm already fielding 18 this week?


For what it's worth, I'm going Barlow to Montagna this week.
Were you planning on using Barlow for the emergency loophole in the coming weeks?


Cheers Cliffy! Sorry I missed responding this arvo – I like Montagna in this week mate

The Master

I nearly traded him in to do the same thing, after reading One touch wonders write up but reversed and stuck to my original plan.
Dodged a bullet.Have VC on Ablett.

smart as s

the rule for a good supercoach side is never to get key forward like tex or jkennedy, however tempting it might be. they may get a 160 one week, but thats irrelevant

Hugh G Rection

I have 10 trades left. Thinking going bang bang bang with Benken, Kerridge and Davis out for Lids, Joey Montagna and Phillips. Go all 3 or be a bit more conservative and get Lids down the track


Like that, mate! Pull the trigger!


Don't hold back son, go large and trade away

Hugh G Rection



With 10 trades, bang bang bang

Hugh G Rection



Brilliant trades. Don't hesitate for a second


Super stuff patch. Gee that was the perfect storm you couldn't have have conjured that. What did you do to p!ss off the SC gods so much?

Patch as our elective with more SC trades and the end of byes over 3 weeks. 1 week off for all teams Rd 13. You've got my vote! It would be a landslide win.

Will look for your name on the ballot paper tomorrow.


Cheers Trigger! It's never been a more exciting time to be a Supercoacher


If Barlow is out until round 19, I think I may as week trade him to Sloane this week and get Zorko next week to take his place in forward line.

Anyone know how long he will be out for?

Southern S

Well it said 2-3 weeks I thought, but now it's gone up to 4 weeks?

So he'll miss rounds 15,16,17 and 18.

Hopefully he comes back in 3 though so round 18 instead of 19 but that's optimistic I guess. I'm keeping him due to having low trades but also decent cover.


Not a bad replacement mate. Really liking the look of the Sloane Ranger


I agree Derek, I think if you want to win he has to go. He can be traded to one of many super premiums for little or no cash.

I really want to keep him, especially seeing I went early on the Wells injury, so I am skeptical of trading Barlow as he is top scoring forward over last 3/5 weeks.

I only have 18 on field this week and that includes Joyce, Phillips, Trengove and Petracca and I am currently 450 points off overall lead.

If I keep Barlow, I get 4 rookie scores. If I trade Barlow to Hanneberry this week and he scores 120+, that is a ~80 point gain on the leaders I will not get if I keep him.


I believe you may have a few more trades than most Derek so I'd pull the trigger as I'm guessing you may need some league wins after that rough start to the season.

Hard to argue with Sloane and Zorko who should present as awesome ins for the Bunnies.


Thanks SC. Yep, got 11 trades so I think I'll trade Barlow to Sloane to complete midfield.

That will give me 22 players this week, will actually have Menadue and Phillips on bench in forward line, so can't even loophole them. Dugh


VCing Gaz right before Hanners is the reason I went to vote early absentee. Love your work Patch. Put Lyon Last!


#priorities – love it!


Down to 6 trades. Is Daniel Rich a viable D6? Community, please assist.


with 6 trades left, I would say yes. 15th highest scoring defender for the year. Plays mid. Who would you trade him to that is going to average more than 85?


Its a nightmare, I had Dahlhaus, Tippett and Nic Nat all go down in the one week. I'm ranked 500 overall but struggling in my most important league with my mates! My dilemma is that I am 5th in my league (yes bad luck H-2-H), playing 6th so its an 8 point game. If I trade Rich, who is not playing, I will maybe win and cement my position in the 8 as I only have 17 on field right now. However this reduces me to 5 trades and Rich is someone I wasn't planning on ditching – I still have Tippa (who was horrible last night and has to go). I have 86k in bank. I'd trade Rich for McVeigh or even punt on JJ….Grrrrr!!!


My other option is to go Ruggles or Bailey Williams to Phillips who gets a game this weekend and DPP and upgrade Tippa later on. Ideally Id' keep Ruggles as bench cover…. But with only 6 trades not sure if this is plain dumb to cash up….


I like McVeigh, although for some reason Longmire chucks him in the forward pocket every now and then. I still have NicNat, so he has to go next week.


Can't handle a tag like Zaka last night but if you're already got him I'd just hold for now and perhaps upgrade around finals time, if you still have a spare trade or two up your sleeve at that time.

An 85 average for an onfield defender whilst not ideal is certainly tolerable. You just wouldn't want to have to depend on him in a big final as that's probably when he'll spud it up for you.


He's not that bad


I felt the agony too Patch last week with outs like Zorko, Hopper and Stewart although you took that to a whole 'nother level I see.

Thanks for fronting up like the true soldier that you are to prepare this fine article each week and not curling up in the foetal position, quivering in some dark corner.


Nice work last night Addict, thought you had it for a while there!


Thanks Steeeve. My rev up of JJK at HT didn't work out as hoped but considering I only decided to give CoachKings a spin for the first time about 30 minutes before lockout I'm sure glad I did.

Already looking forward to next Thursday's play at home game Port v Hawks.


I've had a lot of practice typing in the foetal position, Addict! But thank you, it's always a pleasure!


Who do you like better – BROAD or JOYCE
purely for the coin



Broad will score more and most likely play more


I reckon Joyce….. do you have Phillips already?


I tossed a coin and got Broad – neither will do much good for you I don't think!


I'm like 60% leaning to going Danger -> Treloar, oh boy wowee.


How much cash do you think Danger will bleed?


Reckon he'll lose ~100k over next few weeks, if so it'd be possible to paint the fence to get him back (Libba & SCollins). Big if there, mind you. Wouldn't be a surprise to see him avg 140 over the next few either.

But it gives me cash to straight swap Wines to Pendles in the next couple, as well as having 18 on-field this week. 10 trades to burn for upgrading my underperforming premos.


Traded him to Hanners myself. I have feeling it could work, in saying that it probably won't.


That last sentence is basically the slogan of my entire season, Liam!


Do we trade out Brodie Smith if we have 18 playing? To maybe a simpson type player


Traded him to doch yesterday.


He'll be good mid/def cover if you can hold him, but if you have the trades to burn, burn them


It depends on your setup. Personally I have just reevaluated him to a D7. Will be getting JJ in maybe 2-3 weeks. I'm keeping him and hoping the odd loophole will work. But I have McKenzie so he's the loophole option. You need to have a non playing D8 to make it work

I N Pieman

Loved the article as always Patch. Damn Menadue. I share your pain. Showed him the door recently too. Prick. Hope he's back to him usual 30's ASAP. Also a Barlow owner & really don't want to get rid of him. Bugger it


Cheers I N! It's a right old pain in the arse, innit? Rockliff all over again!


Patch what did you end up with last week?
I only got 1607


Some 70 points less than that…


You will bounce back like the legend you are


Cheers Thommo!

He man

Keep Priddis score or take a punt elsewhere?


I'll offer the contrarian view.

I'm in the same boat but Gaz in ripping form at home against the fantasy point leaking Saints (who also really struggle on the road) looks hard to resist.

Not sure Pridda's 122 is quite enough to ward off temptation for mine with Gaz now seemingly getting back to his best.


Agree, would go Gaz!


Historically low-scoring against a strong Swans midfield. Also, how many players have stayed over the 700k mark for too long? He'll be breaking records if he goes up in price. And not just his all-time high of 122 against the Swans, but the all-time priciest player record.

Top form? expect a Tom Mitchell tag (sorry Mitchell owners)

Is Danger capable of doing it? Sure! Priced to avg 140ish, has beaten that 4/14 games this year. Does it seem likely on evidence that he will? Maybe 40% likely… those aren't bad odds 😉


Got 21 playing with 9 trades left (2 left for the round)

Is it worth going Kerridge > Montagna despite having Barlow and Wells, simply due to break evens??

Need to upgrade one left down back but waiting on Shaw/Williams/JJ in next few weeks

Other dilemma is Cripps and Libba, is it worth upgrading to a Treloar or even sideways to Parker?? For my last mid spot


Barlow will be out for 3-4 weeks. Not holding him. Has made nice coin, trading him


I think we've got every scrap out of Kerridge. He's been great but you either upgrade him to Montagna this week or never. I've done it

Jonathan Camac

Patch for PM! Like if you would give him a vote #getaroundhim


Simpson or go more pod in Boyd?
I don't think dogs will rest him. They have already, had the bye then one week before finals should do him


I have both but would stick with the rock solidness of Simmo who rarely misses a game. In fact has only missed 5 games in the past 11 years which must be right up there for playing % over the course of a decade. Oh and he's also in career best form and sharing the load down back beautifully with Docherty.

Whilst I obviously think Boyd is a sensational pick too there are also a few more variables with the shifting Dogs defence dynamics. But both guys are superb choices so just pick who your instinct likes best as there is nothing between them pricewise.


I've went Boyd! Hoping Simpson drops off never averaged 100 in his career and need to make some different choices!


Big M

this is my back line
Heath Shaw
Rory Laird
Sam Docherty
Kade Simpson
Jimmy Bartel
Marcus Adams
Darcy Byrne-Jones
Samuel Collins

Big M

But who to would be the question
thinking Nathan Broad – but that goes against the rule of not picking until on the buble


Are you calling Adams a premo? I don't think so

Big M

well, yer, ya right, but he's ok for now

Dickin Cider

Team is

shaw bartel laird simpson docherty adams collins joyce
danger pendles ablett parker ward sloane libba kerridge trengove stewart d.cuningham
goldy gawn cox
martin barlow hall zorko montagna petracca menadue phillips

1 trades and 342k in bank

Should i go bang bang this week or just upgrade Petracca/Kerridge. Was gonna wait for Hanners price drop but also like Kennedy as i think he could come home with a bang and is a POD option.
Adams can wait as I want to see how JJ goes for his first game back.

Thanks community


Hope that's one trade for this week mate! You look pretty set as is and could hold off one more for the Kedge upgrade


What do they tell us every year. Trades are vital, trades are vital. Trades are vital. Might that tattooed backwards on my chest so I can read it every morning in the mirror.
And 'Don't chase last weeks points. Don't chase last weeks points.'


I might have said that a few times. I held rocky and laird and Wingard and rich and JPK and Barlow while they were out, just so I'd have trades at the end. Now I've got plenty of trades but a poor rank.

There is a balance


Yep – planning your trades even more vital. I've had a ripper run with injury this year but somehow have had the trades slip from my grasp.


Keays and Davis to Ablett and Phillips.
That felt good.


With Dunkley & Williams out it looks as though I will only be firelding 17 bloody players. I got rid of Barlow for Merritt & now I am strongly considering of trading Rioli to Montagna because its the cheapest we will get Montagna.

That will see me with 18 players, but only 6 trades.


If that's full premo six trades should see you through, Deano. But a tough call. I'd cop the week of 17, myself


Deary me Jack Trengove omitted. Well so much for that supposed solid job security!

Geez Roosy couldn't you wait at least one more week until the byes are over.


Yep. "I've got that Zorko feeling"
17 again this week :'(


oh WHAT the hell, so even if I trade Rioli to Montagna as I was going to do in order to have 18 players. I'm still stuffed now that Trengove has been omitted.

So much for planning BYE rounds this happens every bloody year. Here is my team:

DEF: Docherty, Simpson, Rance, Laird (SHAW, RICH, COLLINS, WILLIAMS)
MID: Pendles, Hannebery, GAJ, Steven, Libba, Wines (DANGER, WARD, TRENGOVE, DUNKLEY, MATHIESON)
RUCK: Gawn, Cox (GOLDY)
FWD: Martin, Z Merrett, Hall, Phillips, Montagna (MOTLOP, WELLS, WYATT)

What are your thoughts SCaddict? ADVICE needed badly and appreciated.


You're in bit of a bind Dean. I'd probably just suck it up like I'll be doing with my RDT side that only has 17 now after the Trengove omission. Who knows maybe Viney will be a late out and we will get a last minute reprieve.

Depending on your trade situation and bank balance you could look at upgrading either Rich or Motlop to a top 8 defender/forward contender. But other than that I reckon you'll just have to take your lumps this round mate. Definitely get Monty in this week as his price is set to soar after this round.

Plenty will feel the bite of the Trengove drop this round so at least we'll have heaps of company in that misery!


Wishin' on that Viney late-out rumour now


That's the only lifeline we've got now bUCKET. 🙁

Nervous Coach

Awesome article again Patch. I have 19 playing including 37 from AMT. Thinking of trading Adams to Pittard or should I wait til next week and get Williams from GWS for the same price. Thoughts !!!!. I also have Kerridge and Barlow and was thinking of keeping them because they are capable of scoring 100+ but everyone seems to be trading them. Thoughts!!


I cant see the point keeping Barlow seeing he is going to be out for 4 weeks, plus I don't trust Ross the liar Lyons, if he was out for a couple then I would have held on to him.

Nervous Coach

Thanks Dean. Do you think I should trade Adams or KK for Pittard?


Sloane a good option for mids?


bloody oath mate.


^Dean's hit the nail on the head. Lock him in!


JPK, Treloar, Cotchin or Sloane?

Who is the best option.


Trengove is a mutt

Shake n bake

I did it last night! I went danger to priddas & banked 230k
Now I have 600k in kitty will be doin tucker to Docherty
which will leave me with just over 250k & 10 trades left.
Then after rd 16 I'll bring danger back for libba.


Ballsy? YEP.
Time will tell Shaker you have a good supply of trades there.


Holy smokes, whacking the old aggots on the table there

Shake n bake

Was at work all afternoon ytday & thought will l won't l!!
& pulled the trigger 5 mins b4 bounce.


Brave! Can't make myself do it because something will happen and I will never get him back in the side, but good luck to you. Serious cojones!


How do the community think JJ will fair?


Should hopefully pick up where he left off but I'd be a little trigger shy to bring him in this week at the SCG.

You hate for him to do another string early in the game trying to bomb away from outside 50 again without playing a lick in the VFL.

Also has a highish BE of 114 so unlikely to increase much in price next week and should be even cheaper. Although I realise bye wise you may need to make the call this weekend.

I reckon Rance and Laird are safer options for similar coinage but JJ will certainly be a POD. Whether that ends up being a good POD or a bad one only the fantasy gods know that answer right now.


Dusty, Gawn, Hunter, Joey

Who do I put the VC and C on


Jack Trengove out. Why do they do it to us on bye weeks?!


awesome! I now have 13 on field this week.


With trengrove out, how many is everyone fielding this week?




Wow. I've got exactly 18 (for now) and not happy, but could be worse




Only 17 and I traded Rioli out for Montagna which I didn't want to do, I originally always thought I would have 19 however with Trengove & Dunkley now on the emergency list I'm stuffed.


Zaharakis why are you so…. BLOODY CRAAAPPP????

Goodbye, Farewell, Bon voyage and good riddance to you….. Sunday night can't come quick enough!


Was probably always going to be a stepping stone to a proper keeper so I gave him the boot a few weeks ago and brought back the Rocksta. Just can't handle a hard tag without the HepDs and Watsons of the worlds by his side.

Can still easily ton up when left alone but too many opposition coaching groups have been unwilling to allow that to happen in the past few months so I reckon he's likely to infuriate more often than satiate in the road home.


I'm with ya. CHOP.


Doh, missed the earlier comments regarding the missing Jack.


Trac to Lids?
Something tells me him playing predominately forward will effect his scoring. Change my mind community!


Great article Patch as always I wait until Friday's before I trade to read this.
Help please I too bought Barlow last week and have a conundrum.
Which two should I trade out?
Either Barlow or Wells for Dusty
Kerridge or Hall for Sloane

Seriously killing me which two to let go of as the remaining one out of each will probably stay till the end


Ruggles swing adams to d6 – lids in


Gresham to hanners

Pat Mc Groin

Need some advice. Got 8 trades left & $237k gotta go all in to charge to the finals, what does the community think of these trades. Libba to Sloane & Keyes to SOS V2, already moved on Ryan davis for Phillips.


Trengove to Phillips?

Shake n bake

Who were you goin to trade for Phillips before Trengove went out?




Methinks Trengrove will replace Viney who has a slight hamstring issue so wait and be careful.


What's the talk about Rockliff wanting to go to St Kilda next year..


good news for Saints, maybe the new stadium at Moorabbin won him over


I dont think hes saying he wants to but his management will try and get a big offer off someone and then force the lions to pay more.
Safe to say if Rocky leaves they really have issues


which option would be better, keep kerrage or trade him to franklin.


Trade him not convinced on buddy though


I hope you traded dude .. The consensus around here is that it was time to move on kedge this week if you hadn't already


Great article as always Patch! I had a shocker yesterday, trading in Merrett at Barlow's expense and then reversing at the last second. Should have kept the faith 🙁

Ill get him in next week, however there is a decent chance I may have to move on Barlow to get an important league win. Have been eyeing Jenkins and Tex for a while now, and their run home just looks so tantalizingly good.

Who would the community go for out of those two? Or is there a better option?

In the Nick of time.

Sloane or Dusty??


VC for Dusty tonight


Barlow to Hanneberry, JPK or Treloar? Or left field Taylor Walker, Lance Franklin. Can be any position up to $610k

Current team:
DEF: Shaw, Docherty, Simpson, Laird, McVeigh, Collins (Ruggles, Joyce)
MID: Danger, Pendles, Ablett, Sloane, Parker, Priddis, Rockliff, BARLOW (Rich, Trengove, Phillips)
RUCK: Gawn, NicNat (Wyatt)
FWD: Dusty, Zorko, Deledio, Montagna, Greene, Hall (Petracca, Grimley)


Can you wait a week for hanners who may drop another 20k? Safest option


I only have 17 playing this week if I dont. Plus the points I dont get if I wait


Fair enough i still like hanners out of all your options.
Personally im holding barlow but i only have 7 trades left and copping the 17 players because of bloody trengrove


Is FanFooty down, its not loading my end…


Wines and menadue make me cry

The master

menapoo might just back it up, pardon the pun. The poo has definately hardened


next captain




Not watching the game – is Lids actually playing? 0 stats almost 1/4 time.


Lids 11 points

Dont Blush Baby

Anyone thinking of trading in Connor Menadue ? I have him already ,great POD !


I'm considering MID lock


Tigers mids looking elite unit with Cotchin, Martin, Menadue, Miles.


Is FanFooty working guys?


Yes Im on smartphone


Menadue outscoring Dusty and Lids. Does that make him a premo now?


I'm loving the cash making potential, pod rookie!!


The more he makes the better my F7 will be when i use the cash i have on him keep it up


Come on Lids, it's bad enough filling 16 without my new premo shitting the bed

The master

menadue has menapaused


Hes like where's wally really hard to find on the field and when you do hes doing bloody nothing


Maric… 74% game time, 0 possessions. Has anyone ever played a full game and got 0 touches before?


Simmo,who i love played his 1st 4 games 0 poss


Much less game time but true, at least for his first three.


Connor Menadue………wtf?

I thought last week was just a bit of a fluke………..

The guy that has gone from a menaSPUD to a menaSTUD last week.

And now? Maybe a it was a fluke…………

On the watchlist….for 2017 season.

Shake n bake

Well last week he had 5 touches in the last half & scored 56pts this week 3 touches in last half and scores 11pts.


Have Menadue on my bench this week, after that effort he can stay there and McGovern gets a run.

Although at Quarter time was on 31.


Do I have McGovern or Phillips on field?

Shake n bake

I'd go phillips


You're a bloody ripper Patch, you ALWAYS deliver a laugh no matter how dark the outlook. I might have to upgrade Barlow to 3rd Gen just to get 16 on field. The only upside is that even with McTips 37 I'll win my league against a bloke with 20


Delidio did good. Still only in 7.4% of teams. Surprised still a POD

u okay hamo?

Anyone else think Hamish McLachlan sounds like he's hyperventilating when he laughs?


I know we keep bringing this up but do we actually think barlow can score as well as he has in the last few when he comes back?


I have 11 trades but I still want to hold Barlow am I crazy? Petracca to Merret next week sees me full premo.


Not crazy at all.
If you are full premo next week with 10 trades in the bank hold Barlow.
Could be a valuable loophole player while he is out and also when he gets back if you have a non playing forward or mid.


Great stuff Patch….. Tonight it was good to see some of the fantasy relevant Power lads crack the ton. Took a punt on Wines this week thinking the Power might finally get their poo together. Can anybody see their guns playing consistently from now on or did i just get them on a good week against an average team?


Dammit !
Trengrove was supposed to a midfield bench lock. Now he is out I am down to 17 this week.
I have a strong urge to trade Trengrove or Jansen down to Joyce (opening all possible swingsets).
My team is set with decent cover on all lines but I only have 6 trades left which is concerning.
Is an extra 50ish points from a guy who might get dropped worth a trade ?

Flaccid Jaff

17 playing atm. I have Gorringe as my R3, i only have 8 left but should I spend a trade going down to nankervis? Does he have better JS and scoring potential?


Living on the edge now with 2 trades left!!! But pretty happy with maybe a full team? Please no injuries and I'll be happy between now and finals. And only $2,000 left. Only position with no emergency is ruck which is my main concern!

Def: Shaw, Docherty, Simpson, Bartel, Laird, Gibson (Collins, Tucker)
Mid: Dangerfield, Ablett, Rockliff, T.Mitchell, Sloane, Lewis, Sidebottom, Parker (Mathieson, Trengrove, Petracca)
Ruck: Gawn, Goldstein (Grimley)
Fwd: Martin, Riewoldt, Merrett, Zorko, Gunston, Montagna (Hams, Phillips)


What rank are you? Your team is very good, I like the mid pods Lewis & Sidebum, and also Riewoldt (assuming its Nick),
your bench is also solid. Good luck, and keep us informed of progress, could be interesting.


..and your E ruck Grimley is looking good for a run this week with both Essendon rucks falling


yeah Nick Riewoldt:) Supercoach takes a bit of getting use to after playing Classic AFL Fantasy for the past 5 years. 3rd year playing SC and just has a much different feel about it. Started playing AF with the limited trades which I enjoyed but again SC just has a different feel about it. Currently ranked at 2,261 but hoping to move a a few spots this round though having Ablett as my captain is going to kill me! Should have loop holed Merrett's score:)


Had the VC on Dusty and that didn't go well. Should I put the C on Pendles or Gaz. Only thing is that my opponent has Gaz as captain.


Same boat as you James. I'm thinking Treloar or Doch.


I think I might have a punt with Pendles. Cheers mate.


Still undecided about today's election. Is there a 'Father of Fantasy Sport' party?? Senator Jock Reynolds as rep.


In my main comp, I've gone ablett vc into pendles c and been looking at my opponent via matchday and laughing to myself that he had gone ablett c and hanners vc "Ha haha he's got them around the wrong way .." just had a re look now … bugger me I'm the one who had it backwards…. and ablett has virtually stopped since qtr time …. any one else ever do something this stupid ????


Guess I'm the only one ….

Nervous Coach

Had the VC on Ablett. Should I leave the C on Peddles or go with Parker or Big Max tomorrow. Thoughts!!!


Leave the C on Pendles.


Pendles likes the blues

ST 74

Currently trailing in both my leagues. Is it worth trading Barlow to Sloane if it means I use a trade to bring Barlow back in. Should I pull the trigger (leaves me with 50k) or cop a loss. Thoughts!!!


Have Sloane as captain (opponent doesn't have him) and will win if he scores anything over 90. Could take Ablett's 87 (he is my vc & my opponents captain) or could go to Gawn (my opponent has him). Very nervous about a Vince tag on Sloane. Any thoughts out there?
