The Heroes, The Villains & The Damned

Big Carl CoachKings Community

Thank God that’s over.

The final round of the byes proved to be the killer for many coaches, myself included. We had to battle with a poor captain score from Gaz, Montagna stinking it up and Melbourne dropping bloody Jack Trengove for no reason. These were just a few of the disasters that occurred.

It was all very difficult to swallow. But the good news is it’s over and we can enjoy having our full squads back on the park.

The play-at-home variant of CoachKings again proved popular on Thursday night, with Andrew Costa finishing at the top of the ladder and pocketing $300 for his troubles.



A big shout out also to Jason Dal Corobbo who played CoachKings down at The Arkaba Hotel and top scored with 1122 during the SYD v WBD game.


The Heroes

Scott Pendlebury (160 SC)

Back with a bang. Those who had the C on him had a massive advantage over their opponents. Returned to his damaging best – this bloke is the master of finding space in congested situations.

Luke Parker (161 SC)

Another who has been reinvigorated. Seems to be over the dull patch he suffered mid-season. Can we expect a return to the big-scoring variant of Parker? Time will tell.

Kade Simpson (128 SC)

Just gets it done every week. Back to his consistent best this season. Isn’t it refreshing to have a player in your side you can rely on every week. They have been few and far between this season.

Honourable mentions:

Jack Watts (146 SC), Travis Boak (141 SC), Marcus Bontempelli (128 SC), Matty Boyd (127 SC), Andrew Gaff (124 SC), Dion Prestia (124 SC), Dan Hannebury (122 SC), Zach Merrett (121 SC).


The Villains

Gary Ablett (87 SC)

Picked a terrible week to have a quiet one. So many had the C on him and it hurt like hell watching him spud it up. Not the worse score, but very un-Gaz-like.

Tom Phillips (28 SC)

What a disaster. Lulled many into a false sense of security with an impressive first two outings, then goes and produces that filth. Disgusting.

Tom Mitchell (60 SC)

Seriously, Tom? What the hell were you doing out there? How can you have a range between 170 and 60? Bloody rubbish. Needs to lift.

Honourable mentions:

Leigh Montagna (70 SC), Jack Steven (52 SC), Mason Cox (47 SC).


The Redeemers

Jarrad McVeigh (114 SC)

Won’t stay underpriced for much longer if he keeps producing this sort of consistency. An astute trade-in option and possibly a top-six defender. Starting to build into some nice form.

Aaron Hall (118 SC)

Welcome back, Aaron. You left us for a little while there, but it’s good to have you back in our forward lines. Got plenty of it and started in the middle plenty of times. Looked bloody good. Well worth holding on to.

Nick Malceski (122 SC)

Another player to benefit from Gold Coast actually playing well. Looked like the Malceski of old, just racking them up off half back. Doubt it will last, though.

Honourable mentions:

Matt Priddis (122 SC).


The Prodigies

Jack Silvagni (70 SC)

Son of SOS looked very much at home in his first outing. Should guarantee himself a few more games in the side after that performance, but we thought about Jack Bloody Trengove as well. Have a look at him for another week and then bring him in.

James Rose (59 SC)

Solid but not spectacular. Still got some cash to be made, though.

Jesse Joyce (51 SC)

Job security is poor and hasn’t done enough in my book. Pass.

Honourable mentions:

Nathan Broad (50 SC).


The Damned

Christian Petracca (52 SC)

A lot are holding him as mid forward cover, but it might be time to say goodbye. Just couldn’t get in to it. Consider off-loading.

Sam Kerridge (55 SC)

Many went Kerridge to Montagna this week, myself included, and while Leeroy spudded it up, it still proved to be the right decision. Kerridge has tonned up four times this season but has also had five scores under 70. You have served us well, but it’s time to go, Sam.

Marcus Adams (50 SC)

Some have held him, myself included, for far too long. Must be discarded ASAP. Not even reliable bench cover anymore. Yuk.

Honourable mentions:

David Zaharakis (46 SC).

Over to you Community, who were your Heroes and Villains from this round?

Dont Blush Baby · 03/07/2016 at 20:06

Is Malcheski as a tease or can he score like he did back at the Swans ? B6 value ?

    Ohalch · 03/07/2016 at 20:40

    Don't do it. Had him all year just traded him out. Absolute tease

    Southern S · 04/07/2016 at 00:53

    You can't trade in players on the back of one good score lol.

    D7 at best.

Vinny · 03/07/2016 at 20:06

Is coach kings at home again this week?

    Peter J Higginbotham · 03/07/2016 at 20:34

    Indeed it is Vinny! Two more Thursday play at home games remain.

    Would love to hear your thoughts, or anyones thoughts, regarding the possibility of opening up a regular weekly play at home game – perhaps a play at home Sunday? The problem we have is of course, how do we provide prizes without requesting an entry fee?

    Peter Higginbotham

      Danners · 03/07/2016 at 20:39

      A play at home game each week for a night game sounds like a good idea Higgo. Probably should be separate from the CoachKings at the pub though

        Mac · 03/07/2016 at 21:15

        The trouble with more than one game is the funds for the prize money. Unless people have to pay to enter, money isn't rolling through the doors and nor can it roll out as prize money.

      David · 04/07/2016 at 11:49

      I'd join the play at home games even if there were no prizes up for grabs, just bragging rights. Jock is a generous man to offer us prizes for the play at home games so far. Would be interested to see if there is a rise in numbers joining in at the pub now that we've all had a crack at marvel that is coachkings.

      Rooster XXX · 04/07/2016 at 11:55

      For punters that live in an area that don't have venues that offer the Coachkings I think a regular play at home version would prove to be very popular. The Friday night game slot would be perfect. $10 Entry fee winner takes all less you blokes taking a cut for providing the platform/game database etc….
      Would be a winner…..

        tim · 04/07/2016 at 12:23


      Northmelb · 04/07/2016 at 15:05

      The Sunday arvo game would be perfect to do at home

      Josh · 06/07/2016 at 10:22

      Living over in the west had made it hard to hear all the positive reports without the ability to indulge ourselves. Have played the first Thursday night, loved it to the point that had a few mates around last week and will do again this week. If it was a regular fixture me and many others would play as often as it was offered. Would throw a fiver or a tenner in any day, with maybe a 1st 60% 2nd 30% and 3rd 10% prize pool as an option. This might be difficult to set up? Or even a membership at start of year for play at homers with a similar cup at the end of the year for top 3 finishers each week.

hedski · 03/07/2016 at 20:09

Zaha must go!
Scored 1995 1774 and 1577 over byes for 1782 ave (17 on field last 2 weeks)
Bring on the real stuff again.
Cheers big Carl throw Sucklingpig in there.

In the Nick of time. · 03/07/2016 at 20:18

I'd probably have Doch somewhere in here as well. Love him to bits but with so many failing premos this round I really needed him to put up a huge score.

    Lachy · 03/07/2016 at 23:00

    that was his first sub-standard game… 84 isn't even that entirely bad either..

    Southern S · 04/07/2016 at 01:04

    Was an 87 lachy 😉

    That as a low score for a defender is very acceptable.

The_Black_Mamba · 03/07/2016 at 20:19

Havent posted in a long time community, although I have been always snooping around the forums. Very impressed with how the community is travelling, I am seeing people that were in these forums during the pre season that are now in the top 1000. I feel like I owe a congratulations to everyone in this community, who have supported each other, given tips and comments on other peoples teams as well as trading advice, especially in these bye rounds which are thankfully over. I myself am currently sitting around the 1500 mark and have a commendable score this round of 1844. The Black Mamba always gets emotional when the bye rounds end, it is the time which sees coaches finally hit full premo and make a late season surge. Good luck and congratulations to you all and I will be posting again soon. Black Mamba out.

    Dave · 03/07/2016 at 22:30

    Yawn! Nighty Night!

    Michael · 05/07/2016 at 12:13

    I'm sitting 550th. Was 207th before buys. Damn the Byes!!
    got 4 trades left with 1 upgrade and 1 downgrade planned for next week.
    Will be nervous sitting there with only 2 trades left. Plz no injuries!!
    P.S Bigfooty is better for Advice

    The Ranger · 05/07/2016 at 13:27

    Good to hear from you Mamba, I'm around that 1500 mark too, hoping to make the top 1K for the first time.
    Best of luck mate.

Mac · 03/07/2016 at 20:22

Really like the look of Silvagni. Hopefully with Byrne going down he retains his spot, even though they play different positions. Found space and seemed right at home out there. Hoping Brown from the Eagles keeps his body right as he will be the perfect downgrade option for those still with Adams, Tippa, Collins

    SOSsauge roll · 03/07/2016 at 21:01

    Not sold on Silvagni after just 1 game. Lot of unwarranted fanfare imo… took a great rising pack mark on his chest which had a few of the commentators bursting their zippers…. but once possesssion was lost he showed little defensive pressure and hardly any worthy second up or third up efforts either. Might be shown up against a classier outfit in the Crows next week. Definitely think his JS is not guaranteed if he is going to be so laconic.

      wombatsfc · 03/07/2016 at 22:46

      The kid had more score involvements than anybody else in the team and 'appeared in space' with the frequency of Eddie Betts when he wore the navy. Adams, Tippa, Byrne, Byrne-Jones, Petracca, Barlow to GSOS is a good move if you need some cash after the byes. A 3rd generation father-son player who knows and follows the coaches plan to the point of sacrificing his 1st afl goal is going to be given every possible opportunity for the rest of the year.

    Southern S · 04/07/2016 at 00:52

    Not saying Silvagni won't be a good pick (On the bubble next week of course)

    But players like Hopper looked great after his first game too. (I know it's a bit different with a 200k rookie but still)

    Leeds17 · 04/07/2016 at 06:28

    My only worry is that he's 18 and they might be happy to just get a couple games for him and put him away for next season

Steeeve · 03/07/2016 at 20:34

Goodbye Petracca, hello Hannebry.

    Your mum · 04/07/2016 at 18:18


Danners · 03/07/2016 at 20:37

Great work Big Carl! Did alright this week 1764 with a donut gives me an average of nearly 1900 over the byes. What did everyone else average?

    Tommo09 · 03/07/2016 at 20:57

    1800 for me even with the putrid score of 1607 last week

    johnno2908 · 04/07/2016 at 07:55

    1976 average over the bye rounds. Moved up to 37 overall. Went Barlow to hanneberry a week earlier than I would have liked, but only cost me $16k and bagged the 123 points.

      Danners · 04/07/2016 at 09:02

      Well done Johno! Should be a good chance from there

    Rivo · 04/07/2016 at 08:02

    1809 with a disaster of 1590 on the weekend.

    HOLLA · 04/07/2016 at 08:53


      Wattsieesq · 04/07/2016 at 11:26

      1958 with an average of 1900 over the byes.

    The Ranger · 04/07/2016 at 13:01

    1830 for me. The injuries to NicNat and Dahlhaus plus Hall and Zorko missing games just came at exactly the wrong time for me and ruined all my bye plans. Still sitting in the 1500's so hopefully can crack the top 1000 this year.

Boltons blues · 03/07/2016 at 20:38

SOJ had plenty of chances to maximise his score, could've easily gone 100+, but like they are taught, he done the team thing even thought the experienced ones (that's you Gibbs you muppet, man bun idiot) let him down.
You can tell he's a son of a gun, just looks at home, bit more body mass in the off season, will be a serious talent.

Going tracca to Zorko this week and then will bring in Pendles or hanners for one of Cripps or libba.
Which one do I keep? And which one do I get? Can only afford to do 1

mark · 03/07/2016 at 21:16

Is it a bit of a risk to bring JJ into the side for my final Backline spot or should i be looking at boyd. Already have shaw docherty simpson laird and rance

    Matt · 03/07/2016 at 21:35

    i'd go JJ at the cheaper price. Boyd also a great pick but I'd be a bit worried he may get rested later in the year (especially Rd 23 vs Freo in Perth)

    Stivlington · 03/07/2016 at 21:36

    My thoughts exactly. I have these options due to cash restrictions:

    1. JJ and Hanners
    2. Boyd and Ward/Gray

      Matt · 03/07/2016 at 22:23

      Definitely option 1 for me.

      johnno2908 · 04/07/2016 at 07:57

      Option 1 for mine.

    wombatsfc · 03/07/2016 at 22:58

    If you've got more than 8-12 trades (more than 40% of this site do according to the poll) and you are only 1 or 2 from full premo (60% of this site are according to poll) it's the obvious trade this week and carries no risk at all.
    If you're a trade addicted points chaser like me and you also only have five trades left and you need a single defender to have a full premo side that includes liabilities like barlow, wells and Martin I'd hold off of JJ for a week

      Southern S · 04/07/2016 at 00:49


    Leeds17 · 04/07/2016 at 06:30

    The sealer for me is that Bulldogs have from memory 5/7 at Etihad for the =rest of the SC season, he plays his best there and even without his match winning goal I think he played pretty well this week.

HOLLA · 03/07/2016 at 21:48

Manage to rocket up the rankings over the bye rounds from 21000 to 9000. Never been this high before. Usually finish 25- 35000. Stoked

    wombatsfc · 03/07/2016 at 23:15

    Congrats Holla and I hope you continue to rise, this site was also a major contributor to my first meteoric rise up the rankings, the community preseason here is must have for any serious Supercoach competitor selecting their initial squad.
    However, research and dedication to the task is king when chasing rank.
    Don't relax, to succeed you must give it your absolute best.
    When I ranked top 100 all season I watched every game of preseason and regular season on foxtel and read every post here and on This year I was 98th after-4 rounds but without watching TV of every game and only random reading here and at I've continued to slide to the point where I'm now 3459th. Experience says that this rank will improve by 2000 or more before seasons end but I certainly wont be anywhere near top 500

oliver · 03/07/2016 at 21:52

Got lucky through the byes and improved my rank from 8000 to 2000 overall. I might be a little behind the pack on reaching full premo though. Have 9k in the kitty, 9 trades left but still fielding two rookies in Petracca and Adams. Thinking of taking a bit of a risk and doing a straight swap from Petracca to Gaff. Still need to make a downgrade at some-point (McGovern, Smith, Hewett) and then upgrade Adams. Still holding Barlow so he could also be given the flick, or swung in to the midfield line for Petracca. The rest of my forward line is less than inspiring (Wells, Hall, Montagna, Buddy, Greene, Wingard). So Gaff a good trade or am i burning myself?

    bUCKET__ · 03/07/2016 at 23:27

    As an eagles supporter I wouldn't recommend it. Gaff's disposal efficiency has been a fair bit down from last year, not good since this was what got him the points as a winger. Hoping this week was the start of a refreshed post-bye run of good form though.

    Billo · 03/07/2016 at 23:40

    The forward line has been tough this year. I think you need Zorko.

HOLLA · 03/07/2016 at 21:54

Who should be my final foward premo.
I currently have.

Was leaning towards montagna or buddy.
Thoughts please.

    HOLLA · 03/07/2016 at 22:00

    Would wait for dahlhaus but currently have kerridge on field.

    wombatsfc · 03/07/2016 at 23:17

    Zorko because I couldn't mount an argument against him but I have multiple reasons to not get the others.

      HOLLA · 03/07/2016 at 23:42

      These are the players i currently have wombats

        wombatsfc · 04/07/2016 at 00:18

        hahaha too many beers sorry mate.
        Maybe some ruck cover if you're low on trades. is it possible for you to get 2 top 20 fwds keeping one on bench and loophole best scores? Montag and Harvey can go big but you don't like relying on them. might be worth seeing if Waites injury was the reason for his crap form

          Southern S · 04/07/2016 at 00:48

          Waite? Nowhere near a top forward even if he was still playing.

    Fresh · 04/07/2016 at 19:47

    Lids easy

      Fresh · 04/07/2016 at 19:48

      Oops too many beers aswell . I'd go Buddy

Alec · 03/07/2016 at 21:58

Buddy Franklin any reason not too (traded Barlow so need a replacement)

    johnny_z · 03/07/2016 at 22:07

    Nope, only reason I haven't is too many swans players

johnny_z · 03/07/2016 at 22:01

Wow made up 437 spots over the bye rounds into 123rd. Its probably too little too late but persistence and patience sure pays off. Probably should've been more aggressive early but let's just hope the top players crumble and someone in the community wins!

    Carla · 03/07/2016 at 22:04

    Your 570 points off the leader definitely still a strong chance. Don't give up yet!!!

    Fourthorn · 03/07/2016 at 22:05

    What's your team look like trades ect

    Matt · 03/07/2016 at 22:11

    If you can move up that many spots in 3 rounds, you'd definitely still be in the running for top spot. Are you at full premo?

    Fourthorn · 03/07/2016 at 22:22

    Best team I've seen so far..
    Boyd McVeigh ward gray Deledio should serve you as good enough pods
    Good luck!!!

    daz · 04/07/2016 at 10:07

    Thats similar to myself was 350ish pre bye, now 80th, 1st place is 200 points ahead of 2nd!, I'm under 300 points from 2nd and like 500 from 1st. Tried to trading to some high risk players i.e. when nic nat went down brought in jacobs at 450 odd and thought he might be good with an easy run home, couldn't bring myself to bring in goldy at 600k. Good luck johnny hope it goes well for you.

      johnny_z · 04/07/2016 at 10:46

      Yeah that's the hard part going pod when the high prices popular picks are that for a reason.. Your definitely still in the hunt!

      How you looking with trades? I know talkin flags was down to 6 last week

        Darren · 04/07/2016 at 12:11

        6 trades left n team is done with 135 in the bank.

        Looks like this:
        Shaw, Bartel, laird, rance, Boyd, Simpson (Collins, Austin)

        Gaj, pend, danger, Selwood, hanners,ward, Sloane, priddis(Trengove, Phillips, McPherson)

        Gawn, jacobs(cox)

        Dusty, Zorko, Montagna, lids, hall, Greene (petracca, menadue)

Jocks Son · 03/07/2016 at 22:02

Fellas, I hope everyone has a cracking weekend and is ready to head into the business end of the season. I would love some feedback on my team as I think I may be done trading for the season unless struck by injury

Shaw, Simpson, Docherty, Pittard, Rance, Laird (Collins, Lee)

Danger, Hanners, Pendulbry, Parker, Treloar, Priddis, Ward, Ablett (Trengrove, Stewart, Phillips)

Gawn, Goldstein (Grimley)

Martin, Deledio, Hall, Zorko, Wells, Dahlhaus (Menadue, Petracca)

7 trades and 100k in the kitty.
Appreciated as per usual.

    Steeeve · 03/07/2016 at 22:50

    Looks good, I'd hold this week then go petracca and menadue out for a non playing rookie and a premo f7/m9 such as Montagna.

    cattery · 04/07/2016 at 15:35

    ripper team there, what are you ranked?

The master · 03/07/2016 at 22:06

first time I have made it into the top 1000, currently 843. happy days, would not be anywhere near this position without Jock Reynolds and the Jock Reynolds community. Thanks all for the constant articles and chat going on, it gives footy a whole new perspective other than just barracking for your AFL team. Now I enjoy watching all games. Best of luck to you all for the run home.

Matt · 03/07/2016 at 22:09

How close is everyone to full premo? And how many trades?

Im sitting at 9 trades with 1 rookie still on field

    Dave · 03/07/2016 at 22:31

    Full premo with 7 tardes

      Moustachio · 04/07/2016 at 09:11

      That's no way to talk about your out of form players mate

    Steeeve · 03/07/2016 at 22:47

    Just hit full keeper but still looking to bring in two more premos for bench cover, and to upgrade two keepers to super premos.
    Have 12 trades left and the finances are all planned.

    Tret · 04/07/2016 at 11:30

    Full premo + 2 premos on the bench but only 7 trades

    David · 04/07/2016 at 12:01

    8 trades left, with 1 mid and 1 fwd onfield still to upgrade … and my bench cover is weak in all positions 🙁 Could be struggling when my guys start falling to injuries late in the season.

Graydon · 03/07/2016 at 22:12

Makes me full premo with 8 trades left and 753 off the pace. Solid trade? And am I still in it?

    HOLLA · 03/07/2016 at 23:44


Steeeve · 03/07/2016 at 22:45

Upgrading Libba and Ollie Wines either this week or next.
Current mids: Danger, Pendles, Gaz, Selwood, Rocky, Hanners. Plus Wines and Libba.

Who should I bring in? Looking at Neale, Robbie Gray, Calllan Ward, Luke Parker, Priddis…

Would love your thoughts and am open to other suggestions. Thanks community!

    Lachy · 04/07/2016 at 02:21

    why wines?? seems like a sidewards trade to me

      Steeeve · 04/07/2016 at 09:53

      He's averaging 93… I'm looking to move him for Ward, Priddis or Gray. All are averaging 10 better.

        bUCKET__ · 04/07/2016 at 10:40

        Neale only one bad score this year. Either him or Ward! Both fairly consistent and can go big.

        As a fellow Wines owner I'm looking to move him on too, might have another price increase or two in him yet but only 5 tons for the year is bad stuff.

        Reckon less stoppages in the game this year has really hurt Wine's game, his outside game is still really lacking.

          Steeeve · 04/07/2016 at 11:02

          Yep definitely agree. Was drizzly Friday night so his contested ball game shone out. Going Libba to Neale this week then once Ollie has added some fat it will be between Gray, Ward or Priddis. All offer fantastic value at the moment.

            bUCKET__ · 04/07/2016 at 23:31

            I broke my SC rules this week and traded Dangerfield out for Treloar, who I thought was value. Hoping Danger drops enough so I can swap him with Wines+190k….

Derek · 03/07/2016 at 22:57

Brodie has to go.

JJ or Rance?

    johnny_z · 03/07/2016 at 23:04

    Depends if you already have Deledio and Martin… JJ still not a proven SuperCoach performer in my eyes but a good pod

      Derek · 03/07/2016 at 23:15

      Got Delidio and Martin. Got point about to many tigers.

      I didn't have JJ at start of year. Might give him a shot, can't be any worse than BSmith

    Lachy · 03/07/2016 at 23:09


    Derek · 03/07/2016 at 23:18

    Got rid of Barlow last week. I thought it an easy trade to Zorko this week.

    thinking about Rioli.

    Derek · 03/07/2016 at 23:27

    After trades this week, JJ and Zorko in.

    Shaw, laird, Bartel, McVeigh, JJ, Rich (Collins, Lee)

    Danger, Gaz, Pendles, JPK, Sloane, Gray, Pridiss (Gresham, Joyce, Phillips)

    Gawn, Blicavs (Whatt)

    Dusty, Delidio, Franklin, Zorko, Montagna, Wingard ( Menadue, Greenwood)

    6 trades, $15k

    Will look at getting either Hall, Dahlaus or Motlop as my F7/m9 (downgrade Gresham) next week.

    Is JJ & Zorko the best trades this week?

      Derek · 03/07/2016 at 23:29

      I left out Rocky

    Southern S · 04/07/2016 at 00:46

    Not sure if I'd be in a rush to trade JJ in.

      Derek · 04/07/2016 at 07:38

      I am in a rush to trade Smith out

        Southern S · 04/07/2016 at 15:17

        Yeah with Smith and Rich back there I can understand that.

Creamy zijmuc · 04/07/2016 at 00:18

Well well well nice to finally have the byes done and dusted .

Need some help community bring in Lachie Neale or Dan Hannebery………or a nice (very nice – 0.5% ownership) POD in Ed bloody Curnow ?


    Southern S · 04/07/2016 at 01:06

    Way more risk involved with Curnow.

    Flaccid Jaff · 04/07/2016 at 05:19

    Neale or hanners, I'm in the same boat this week, only trades/room for 1. I've been leaning towardd neale with that packed sydney midfield, but it reslly hasn't effected hanners, so I'm torn!

    Danners · 04/07/2016 at 09:15

    Depends on your midfield, if you already have JPK/Parker go Neale otherwise Hannebery

    Clarky99 · 04/07/2016 at 09:39

    Curnow often plays a run with role, like he did against the Pies. Would back Neale or Hanners any day.

tuxCS · 04/07/2016 at 00:21

Even with a pretty meh score this week of 1828, i still managed to climb the rankings by 745 places, and it put me at an overall ranking of 2548. I'm "full premium" (still iffy on liberatore), and im ready to push for the top 1000.

This is what my team looks like:

Shaw, Docherty, Simpson, Laird, Rance, Bartel

Dangerfield, Ablett, Pendelbury, Neale, Hannebery, Selwood, R.Gray, LIBERATORE (Trengove, Mathieson, Phillips)

Gawn, Goldstein (Chol)

Merrett, Montagna, Zorko, Wells, Hall, Deledio (Menadue, COX)

Only 4 trades left, going to be holding tight until then. The only trades that i can see making that arent injury related are possibly:
Cox to Silvagni,
Liberatore to Sloane. Any feedback welcome, thanks!

    Southern S · 04/07/2016 at 01:00

    Sit tight on the trades and you might need Cox for the Ruck/Fwd swing so keep him all year, it wouldn't be wise to trade him out.

    Libbe is a decent M8 I'd probably trade Menadue to Silvagni next week but also remember don't get too excited by one good score and it was only a 70 and he has no mid/fwd swing.

Jonty · 04/07/2016 at 00:34

only had 7 trades left at the beginning of this week, but I think I've pulled off a masterstroke imo. would love your thoughts
zaka out, swing rich, broad in
DBJ out, swing rich, peddles in
now 5 trades left and collins only non prem in best 22.
will probably trade out petracca for my fellow class of 15 Xav SOS/sossage (Silvagni) next week if he plays next week

    jonty · 04/07/2016 at 00:36

    and 400k in the bank if I trade in jacky boy.

      Southern S · 04/07/2016 at 01:08

      Don't get too excited by any player after one game.

      Broad could be an option if you need the downgrade in defense and have a reliable D7.

    Southern S · 04/07/2016 at 00:57

    I'd probably get Pendles in you need premos, especially with Rich and Collins on field who are not in that category.

    Lol · 04/07/2016 at 10:01

    So Zaharakis to Pendlebury and Byrne-Jones to Broad..? Lol

Smote · 04/07/2016 at 00:59

Curnow has been on my radar too… in all the important stats this has been his best year by far. For a run-with player he really racks it up… and with some poise in his disposal too and is a tackling machine. Only fantasy downside is his kick to handball ratio is nearly the same. And doesn't get forward to hit the scoreboard enough. The other two have the higher ceiling, but if you are going only for league wins Curnow is a handy POD.

    Southern S · 04/07/2016 at 01:06

    Probably max price for him but very interesting POD, only in one of every 200 teams.

Mikey · 04/07/2016 at 02:00

Hi community, can I please get any suggestions
On trades I should be making this week? I like to
Think my team is about full premo, but would appreciate thoughts from others.
I have 6 trades left and 5k in the bank:

    Rivo · 04/07/2016 at 19:14

    I think you shouldn't trade this week. 6 trades is running low & team looks good at this stage. Injuries will need to be covered and it's a long season.

mfawcett77 · 04/07/2016 at 03:28

No trades left for me until Finals. Barring no injuries I'm set with my team. Only 2 trades though!!! and 2,000. Crossing my fingers and everything else:)

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

    johnno2908 · 04/07/2016 at 08:06

    Nice POD side. What rank?

      mfawcett77 · 05/07/2016 at 15:06

      slipped quite badly in the last bye round to 5026. Slipped 2765 spots:( Hopefully can come home strong barring no injuries and get close to top 1,000.

    Gunsh · 04/07/2016 at 18:22

    Agreed , nice pod side … Very nice pods .

    Rank ?

      mfawcett77 · 05/07/2016 at 15:07

      slipped a bit in the last round. As above reply shows:(

Tommo09 · 04/07/2016 at 07:32

I have a problem
I only have left 8 trades and $129k left
Was trying to get Tippa and Libba out for JJ and Neale but I am 27k short
I could trade out Hopper to get some cash
Any ideas?
Here is my team:
Def: Shaw, Docherty, Simpson, Laird, Savage, Tippa (Collins, Austin)
Mid: Danger, Pendles, Ablett, Rockliff, Hanners, Priddis, Libba, Parker (Hopper, Trengove, MacPherson)
Ruc: Gawn, Goldy (Grimley)
Fwd: Martin, Wells, Riewoldt, Franklin, Hall, Petracca (Barlow, Phillips)

    Kev · 04/07/2016 at 07:56

    How about Ward and JJ mate?

      Tommo09 · 04/07/2016 at 08:00

      I like Neale for a pod and I need some pods
      I could go down from Hopper

    Tommo09 · 04/07/2016 at 09:39

    I am also trying to get Gaff as M9
    To do all three trades in the next two weeks I may have to trade Petracca to a rookie and play Phillips until Barlow gets back

Tommo09 · 04/07/2016 at 07:44

Andrew Gaff for anyone as bench cover at $377k?

    Kev · 04/07/2016 at 07:57

    Like it

    Danners · 04/07/2016 at 09:13

    A good option for bench cover, not sure whether he will score well in the run home though

    Clarky99 · 04/07/2016 at 09:41

    If you have plenty of trades left, very nice M8/M9

Adam · 04/07/2016 at 08:09

Current team is:
Def: Shaw, Simpson, Boyd, Bartel, Laird, Collins, Brown, Lee.
Mids: Pendlebury, Dangerfield, Hannebery, Ablett, Parker, Gray, Priddis, Shiel, Trengove, Jansen, Phillips
Rucks: Goldstein, Gawn, Wyatt
Fwds: Montagna, Zorko, Deledio, N Riewoldt, Hall, Barlow, Lyons, Silvangi
4 trades left, 38,500 remaining in salary and ranked 428.

Who should be brought in for the last defensive spot: S Docherty, Z Williams or J Johannisen.
Williams has an easy draw home and Johannisen plays the last 5 out of 8 at Eithiad.

Docherty or Williams will cost 2 trades, leaves me with 2 remaining and means Phillips/Silvangi will be F6 until Barlow returns whereas Johannisen costs 1 trade, leaves me with 3 remaining and means Brown/Silvangi will be F6 until Barlow returns.

Greatly appreciate any feedback/opinions.

    Moustachio · 04/07/2016 at 09:21

    You've got to conserve trades at this point, take a punt on JJ for yours imo

Rivo · 04/07/2016 at 08:13

Great work Big Carl. So glad the byes are done too.

I'm now stuck. 8 trades but no cash.

D: Shaw, Docherty, Larid, Rance, Rich, S.Collins (B.Williams, Broad)
M: Danger, Pendles, Ablett, Selwood, Rockliff, Ward, Parker, Libba (Petraca, Trengove, Phillips)
R: Goldstein, Gawn (Cox)
F: Martin, Wells, Zorko, Deledio, Montagna, Hall (Rose, Grimley).

Not full premo yet. Hold seems obvious. What moves could I make here?

johnno2908 · 04/07/2016 at 08:13

Decided to keep Rich for now, then maybe trade to Dahlhaus when he comes back and loop collins ruggles and joyce at D6. 2 trades this week, no more until finals now. Pushed hard through the byes utilizing 9 trades. Down to 6 trades left after NicNat to Goldy and Petracca to Motlop (Risky trade… but f7/m9 with high ceiling.
Current team:
DEF: Shaw, Simpson, Docherty, Laird, McVeigh, Rich (Collins, Ruggles)
MID: Danger, Pendles, Hanners, Ablett, Sloane, Priddis, Rockliff, Parker (Trengove, Joyce, Phillips)
RUCK: Goldy, Gawn (Wyatt)
FWD: Dusty, Zorko, Deledio, Montagna, Hall, Greene (Motlop, Grimley)

50_Shades · 04/07/2016 at 08:17

6k short of trading Goldstein and Zorko in this week for Kerridge and Petracca (both lost too much value).

Option 1 – do Zorko and SMartin instead
Option 2 – just do one of Zorko and Goldstein this week and pick up the other the next round, which one to buy this round?

7 trades left, $285k cash.

    johnno2908 · 04/07/2016 at 08:21

    If you dont get Goldy will you have a donut in ruck? Or a cox type? I would say petracca would outscore cox, so kerridge to goldy I think

      50_Shades · 04/07/2016 at 08:51

      Yeah I've got Cox as Ruck cover.
      Goldy's got Lycett whereas Zorko's got the Suns. Both have s similar BE to get this week (129 odd)

    Moustachio · 04/07/2016 at 09:23

    Zorko is a bit down lately, maybe due to Rockie coming back, maybe due to his heavily preggo wife and now he will be tired with a new baby! Consider another good value forward which would let you grab Goldie this round too imo.

Clarky99 · 04/07/2016 at 08:40

I still have both Tracca and Kerridge, need to get rid of one and keep one as Mid/FWD cover. Which one?

    I N Pieman · 04/07/2016 at 09:47

    Petrecca. Kerridge has more preseasons under the belt

Brent · 04/07/2016 at 09:32

Keep petracca or McGovern as f7? Leaning McGovern hasn't missed a game

Alan · 04/07/2016 at 09:36

What do we do with matt suckling?

    Loop · 04/07/2016 at 09:40

    I bought him into my team as fwd coverage but I'm doubting that choice now. I'll be keeping him, hopefully as D7.

    Danners · 04/07/2016 at 09:58

    Hold to use as an D7/F7, his link could be handy for later on

    I N Pieman · 04/07/2016 at 11:33

    Put him on your banned for life list. Not consistent enough

Jim · 04/07/2016 at 09:37

Should i get Nick Riewoldt or dayne zorko?

    I N Pieman · 04/07/2016 at 09:48

    Zorko. Roo far more likely to get injured or miss games being rested

TRIGGER HAPPY · 04/07/2016 at 09:50

Thank gawd that is over that was brutal Rd 15. Always knew it was gonna be tough but due to injuries during the byes and players getting dropped had 15 this week – brutal.
Anyway forget that one brought in McVeigh for Ruggles rd 15 and have full premo 22 with 6 in the chamber.
Over to you boys due me proud…

I N Pieman · 04/07/2016 at 09:50

Quite set on Weit to JJ this week. Have the cash to go Libba to Neale or Rich to Zac W. Thoughts peoples? Thinking Libba to Neale. But I hate Rich

    Danners · 04/07/2016 at 09:58

    For someone in your position, they would be good trades to move up the rankings

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 04/07/2016 at 11:20

    Pieman if you have weita and rich in Def I think this should take priority over upgrading libba.
    Libba avg 90- 100 the other two 70-80.
    Williams and JJ are great options and nice pods.
    Go hard or go home

      I N Pieman · 04/07/2016 at 11:28

      Thanks lads. Solid advice. Weit to JJ this week is signed off. Like the Dogs run home & that goal will give JJ massive confidence. So it comes down to the removal of Rich or Libba. And I hate Rich

        The Ranger · 04/07/2016 at 12:53

        I've got a similar dilemma Pieman, Libba – Neale or Yeo – Doch?
        Head says former, heart says latter.

          I N Pieman · 04/07/2016 at 13:06

          Libba to Neale looks great Ranger. But tossing a defence spud is probably the most logical move to make

hedski · 04/07/2016 at 09:54

Zaha to Ward feels so good!!!

    Danners · 04/07/2016 at 09:57

    If you can, Zaha could be a handy M9

    I N Pieman · 04/07/2016 at 10:03

    After Zaha's cracking start he's fallen in a heap. No problem with that trade at all Hedski

    SCaddict · 04/07/2016 at 14:55

    Huge upgrade hedski. Giants have a soft draw now and I'm sure Ward and his mates will take full advantage. Planning to go Libba to Ward myself this week.

    EDIT: Zaka has just been suspended for the cherry on top not that you needed an extra reason to lop his head off.

      hedski · 04/07/2016 at 15:34

      Didnt need that reason sc but does make it feel even better cheers

@iambrowndawg · 04/07/2016 at 09:55

Alright guys, need one more upgrade for my backline, do I upgrade KK or Adams? Which one of those two will be better bench cover for the rest of the year?

    Dasha · 04/07/2016 at 10:06

    Close call but I'd probably say Adams unless you think KK could find some consistency for the rest of the year

    Pinidu · 04/07/2016 at 11:11

    Trade Adams and keep KK

cooky · 04/07/2016 at 10:03

Community, Petracca to Z Merret in forward line how does this sound. i also have Dusty, Buddy, Zorko, Wells and Deledio there.

shemmist · 04/07/2016 at 10:11

hi community, i am currently ranked 18th 303 points behind the leader with 6 trades to go. im full premo but that's including wingard whos been rubbish. should i look to upgrade him to a dayne zorko or something or keep the trades?

    I N Pieman · 04/07/2016 at 10:33

    Tough call. I'd say most ahead of you have less trades which could be an advantage. But most ahead of you would have Zorko & not Wingard. If I was in your position I'd pull that trade

    Rick Grimes · 04/07/2016 at 10:41

    I'd look to get a F7 fallen to loop hole. I'm now "full premo" but that includes Hall who I don't really have faith in. So my aim is to grab a discounted premo and loophole Hall. Same in my midfield. Will look for someone who has dropped to the $450k mark and loophole them each week.

      shemmist · 04/07/2016 at 10:54

      yeah in the midfield i have libba to loophole, smart move but i really want zorko and i need to trade wingard to get him

        Rick Grimes · 04/07/2016 at 13:32

        Go with the gut. Wingard can go big but he's not nearly as consistent as Zorko has been this year. You have to pay for peace of mind in this game.

        Derek · 04/07/2016 at 13:34

        Libba to zorko

          shemmist · 04/07/2016 at 14:39

          and place wingard on mid bench?

          shemmist · 04/07/2016 at 14:40

          thats actually smart because he has the swing

            Derek · 04/07/2016 at 16:59

            Wingard doesn't have DPP, but I assume you had Phillips or similar to swing Zorko forward

Dave · 04/07/2016 at 10:23

What is the community doing with Petracca holding or trading? Can he bounce back against Freo?

    I N Pieman · 04/07/2016 at 10:37

    I'd only keep him for cover

      Dave · 04/07/2016 at 10:38

      Yeah, I think he's a good bench player

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 04/07/2016 at 11:17


      DPP bench

        Higgo's Dog · 04/07/2016 at 17:26


Tommo09 · 04/07/2016 at 10:27

Am trying to get JJ, Neale and Gaff (as M9) in the next 2 weeks
The problem is I only have $129k left and 8 trades
The only way I can do it is if I trade Tippa and Petracca to JJ and a rookie this week and play Phillips on ground until Barlow gets back and then Libba and Hopper and pray that Gaff and Neale don't go up much
My team is above

    fan · 04/07/2016 at 23:16

    If you want gaff you gotta do it this week.
    I would put Neale priority over JJ this week too.

      Tommo09 · 05/07/2016 at 07:49

      Decided not to get gaff as it leaves me with too few trades and not enough bench cover

The Beard · 04/07/2016 at 10:34

Can someone please tell me the breakeven for Kerrige, AMT, Adams.

Need to cut one for Broad this week not sure who is most urgent.

    Dave · 04/07/2016 at 11:18

    Kerridge BE 116, AMT BE 109 and Adams BE 104

      Dave · 04/07/2016 at 11:19

      Probably should cull 2

      The Beard · 04/07/2016 at 12:15


      Well Kerrige has to go against Crows.

      Who to cut AMT or Adams?

        Northmelb · 04/07/2016 at 12:44

        Amt. scores less and high be

        Dave · 04/07/2016 at 13:20


          The Beard · 04/07/2016 at 18:19

          Anyone better then Broad coming on lads or to look at now?

    Moustachio · 04/07/2016 at 20:04

Gord29 · 04/07/2016 at 10:44

JJ or McVeigh community current backline is shaw, Docherty, Simpson, Bartel, Boyd and Collins (Austin and lee) currently ranked 311 so looking for a POD

    Tom · 04/07/2016 at 11:13

    If your doing the trade this week, I'd probably go McVeigh because he seems to be playing his best footy lately and has a BE of 34 so his price will keep going up. But if your waiting a week or two I'd go JJ depending on his form in the next few games.

      Gord29 · 04/07/2016 at 12:37

      Aiming to go this week so I don't have Collins on field I can go any defender

Lesley · 04/07/2016 at 10:44

Hello community, not sure if I should keep my team the wa it is? Would love if someone could tell me if there is anyone I should be getting rid of like Birchall or Greene ? I have 6 trades with 5k in the kitty:

Adam · 04/07/2016 at 11:13

Thoughts on team including this weeks trades of Out: Brown, Lyons, In: Docherty, Beech. I am currently ranked 428 with 2 trades left after this weeks trades and 73,200 remaining in salary.
Def: Docherty, Shaw, Bartel, Boyd, Laird, Simpson, Collins, Lee.
Mids: Dangerfield, Hannebery, Ablett, Pendlebury, Parker, Priddis, Gray, Shiel, Trengove, Jansen, Beech.
Rucks: Gawn, Goldstein, Wyatt.
Fwds: Zorko, Montagna, Barlow, Deledio, N Riewoldt, Hall, Phillips, Silvangi.

Tom · 04/07/2016 at 11:18

If I for some unknown reason haven't got Zorko yet, is it worth bringing him in now? I've got the cash, but are there any better forward premos out there who will score better for the rest of the season? I've already got Martin, Montagna, Wells, Hall, Barlow, Kerridge (who i'm gonna use to upgrade).

    Millicent · 04/07/2016 at 11:40

    Easy- Zorko and if you haven't got a mid/fwd in your mids, put him in your midline. Zorko is a strong enough SC point scorer in line with Selwood and Parker averaging who are also averaging about 112.

Pinidu · 04/07/2016 at 11:27

D: Shaw, Docherty, Simpson, Laird, Rance, Gibson (Collins, Lee)
M: Danger, Pendles, Hannerbery, Gaz, Priddis, Gray, Libba, Mills (Trengove, Matheison, Phillips)
R: Gawn, Goldstein (Wyatt)
F: Martin, Barlow, Montagna, Wells, Greene, Hall (Petracca, Paine)

10 Trades and 240K in the bank.

Should I….

Mills > Neale
Barlow > Zorko


Mills > Neale
Petracca > Motlop (play Motlop instead of Barlow until he returns and then put Motlop on the bench)

And if you have any other suggestions community, I'd love to hear them.


    GoHawks · 04/07/2016 at 13:01

    B Gives you a good emergency at F7 or M9 when Barlow returns, by using Phillips as the swingman with many of those forwards.

Millicent · 04/07/2016 at 11:51

Thanks to Jonno2908 who gave me an excellent explanation of the emergency loophole. It worked a treat and I won my three games, two by less than twenty points. I was starting Phillips – 20 but I looped him with McGovern – 73 points. This week I will try it again in my defence.

    johnno2908 · 04/07/2016 at 13:21

    Good to hear. I unfortunately only had 18 playing so that putrid 28 formed part of my score

Skewballer444 · 04/07/2016 at 11:58

Big Carl, I am the villain this week.
Pendlebury was my captain but whilst sitting in my car waiting for my wife who was shopping in Boronia Safeway, I swapped to Sloane, thus losing all four games.
Message. I should have gotten off my arse and pushed the trolley for Anna, and, don't do any last minute switches after having figured out all week that Treloar not Pendlebury would get the tag.

    I N Pieman · 04/07/2016 at 13:09

    Your right Skewballer. Occasionally a wife can come in handy

Big G · 04/07/2016 at 12:01

Seriously sad news about Trengrove – really wanted him to get to 350,000 quickly.

    pete · 04/07/2016 at 12:26

    what happend to him

      Big G · 04/07/2016 at 12:36


        pete · 04/07/2016 at 12:45

        lol i knew that thought a new injury was reported pheww

          The word "sad" made it sound a more more traumatic.

            Southern S · 04/07/2016 at 15:19

            'Seriously sad' sounded like a life threatening incident

    I N Pieman · 04/07/2016 at 13:25

    I think he may have been rested. Don't be surprised to see him back shortly

      Big G · 04/07/2016 at 14:50

      Rested after 3 games..

        Clarky99 · 04/07/2016 at 17:16

        After a few serious injuries they are managing him. Isn't surprising at all. They don't want him to go too hard.

Tommo09 · 04/07/2016 at 12:02

Is it worth getting Gaff as cover in mids at the expense of having Phillip on field instead of Petracca until Barlow gets back?
Or do I just hold?

    Tommo09 · 04/07/2016 at 16:31

    I have 7 trades left with Libba on field

The Hannasseys · 04/07/2016 at 12:04

Which player to put on the bench this week. KK, O. McDonald or S Collins.
Yes, they are all ordinary but just playing in a weak family league.

    I N Pieman · 04/07/2016 at 13:25

    O MacD for mine

      The Hannasseys · 04/07/2016 at 14:29

      Thank Pieman. You generally give good advice to the SC community.
      With the three players mentioned, is it possible to do the emergency loophole because I have B. Williams Bulldogs, as my non player this round. I would appreciate your help please.

        Northmelb · 04/07/2016 at 14:56

        U can only loophole Kk as he plays first, but u would have to be on In between games cause there'll be about 30 mins ish between them.

          The Hannasseys · 04/07/2016 at 15:30

          Thanks Northmelb. I looked at the match times and it is tight but manageable. But what do I have to do?
          Do I put KK on the ground and make O. McDonald my emergency? What happens then? I would be grateful for your help please as I have read about this loophole but not tried it.

            hedski · 04/07/2016 at 15:37

            KK emergency and macd/collins on ground. If KK scores well stick williams on to get his points.

              The Hannasseys · 04/07/2016 at 16:53

              Very clear. Thanks.

        Nuggety · 04/07/2016 at 18:44

        I listen to the Kidman over most others. His outburst a few weeks back is the reason I didn't bring in montagna this week..

          Nuggety · 04/07/2016 at 18:45


            hedski · 04/07/2016 at 19:36

            Kid man gold

Dave · 04/07/2016 at 12:05

Rock is my M8, I like Neale because of his price, looks like he's bottomed out, scored 100 plus 12 out of 14 games the other 2 games scored 92 and51 with a BE of 86. Rocky BE of 102 priced @ 566,500 Neale priced @ 558,700 is this worth a trade? Then Priddis would be move into my M8.

Thoughts please?


    Stupid trade · 04/07/2016 at 14:58

    ??? What are you on about?

    Trading Rockliff to Neale?

Andrew · 04/07/2016 at 12:33

Libba to Neale or Ward?
Both have bottomed out in price, can't pick between the two

azza · 04/07/2016 at 12:39

traded out stefan to nicnat a month ago,
now at the cross roads of deciding whether to go goldy vs stefan +100k
currently at full premium (libba m8) with 6 trades and 115k
would like some thoughts on this situation

    Gherkin · 04/07/2016 at 13:28

    Hi azza. I've had Nic Nat all year but am now faced with the same problem. Goldy will probably average more but I might need the extra 100k to get best available should any injuries hit. Martin is more of a POD with around 9% (Goldy currently 42%).

    I'm down to 4 trades after I trade out Nic Nat but have keepers across all lines and bench cover so shouldn't need to trade again other than to replace injured players. Am leaning towards Martin for POD and extra cash as I feel it could come in handy.

      Rogan · 04/07/2016 at 18:43

      In my opinion, Martin will go pretty close to Goldy (as long as West stays out of the team). Pocket the cash. I've been very happy with him since trading out NicNat.

Wattsieesq · 04/07/2016 at 12:45

Not sure whether to bring in Zorko, Lids or Zach Merrett as my last forward premo. I'm thinking Lids, but not sure. What does everyone else think?

    Grahame Lebroy · 04/07/2016 at 13:21

    I was hoping dahlhaus would come back soon and get him but doesn't look like that will happen so in the same boat. Prob Lids, but I am starting to lean towards Merrett of late.

      The Beard · 04/07/2016 at 13:26

      I'm going Merrett.

        Cooksley10 · 04/07/2016 at 13:51

        Why Merrett. He is a little cheaper than Zorko but the latter has a far better average. He may also be better the last few games after missing two weeks through the birth of his child and the bye. I also want one or the over but who will prevail?

          Bolton's Blues · 04/07/2016 at 15:35

          Merrett or Zorko, ive locked in Zorko, will complete my foward line

          The Beard · 04/07/2016 at 18:20

          I have Zorko already. I mean I'm going Merrett over Lids….

edward · 04/07/2016 at 12:57

Silvagni was an absolute joke in his first game, its beyond me hes even getting a game, its clear he cant even play the game, what a joke, do not bring him in community!

    Mac · 04/07/2016 at 13:31

    On your bike Edward. No one wants to hear your negativity.

    I N Pieman · 04/07/2016 at 13:54

    Must be Edward McGuire

    Eggar so · 04/07/2016 at 14:31

    SC community. Ignore this fool.

    Northmelb · 04/07/2016 at 14:58

    He played alright when he got the ball anyway, would've had a few score assists throughout the game

      Smote · 04/07/2016 at 20:33

      Not sure if this person is trolling or not…. but as a blues fan i am hoping the Silvagni kid can sit down and watch a dvd of Kade Simpson highlights. You can see he has good offensive footy smarts … but lacked a bit of intensity with the defensive pressure. All in all, a decent debut…very harsh to be called a "joke".

James · 04/07/2016 at 13:06

My mate who works at the doggies has informed me that Dahlhaus will miss another 4-5 games potentially more as the injury was worse than first thought. Trading out this week for montagna.

    Mac · 04/07/2016 at 13:32

    Great insight, was hoping to maybe pick him up soon for bench cover as the F7/M10 player

    I N Pieman · 04/07/2016 at 13:55

    Nice James. If anyone is holding him it would be best to move him on asap

    Steeeve · 04/07/2016 at 15:45

    I wanted to bring him in as my m9/f7 but it might be too late. He will have to come back and play two games before his price bottoms out. That's SC grand final right?

    Brent · 04/07/2016 at 18:09

    Your mate seems like a good loyal clubman!

    John · 04/07/2016 at 19:28

    bs mate

HallyM8 · 04/07/2016 at 14:09

Trades this week are Petracca to Payne (loophole) and Jansen to Pendlebury
This leaves my final team as
Simpson Boyd Gibbo Savage Williams Laird, Collins Brand
Danger Pendles Hannerbury Neale Ablett Shiel Priddis Rockliff, Stewart Trengrove Phillips
Gawn Martin, Grimley
Dusty Merrett Montagna Buddy Zorko Wells, Hall Payne
Is this a good enough team to last the rest of the season?

Dasha · 04/07/2016 at 14:17

Upgrade Wingard or libba?

Tommy · 04/07/2016 at 14:17

Treloar, Shiel or Parker?

I already have Sidebum and Pendles in my midfield. I like Parker's ceiling, but when he is off, he is really off. Shiel doesnt have a big ceiling, but pretty consistent.

Michawl · 04/07/2016 at 14:34

Would really appreciate if someone could tell
me what I should do next in my team.
I'm quite happy as it is, any trades that need to be made ?

    cattery · 04/07/2016 at 15:24

    Good looking team mate. Maybe offload Libba if you have trades availabe, maybe upgrade to Parker?

    Kev · 04/07/2016 at 15:36

    Looks very good. Hold this week

ethan · 04/07/2016 at 14:39

Is it time to offload Wingard brought him in when he was 380k and hasn't done a heap

    Southern S · 04/07/2016 at 15:21

    Use as F7?

    Steeeve · 04/07/2016 at 15:46

    Since then he's put up a few tonnes. Luxury trade at best.

TomasR · 04/07/2016 at 14:49

Got 2 options, which trades i should do. Got 7 trades left before this week.
Option 1: Trengove down to Non playing player (Loophole), Kerridge up to Parker/Treloar
Option 2: Tracca down to 102k player, Kerridge up to Hanners/Neale (This leaves me with Jansen/Trengove as M9 for the time being.

Which one community?

ethan · 04/07/2016 at 14:52

Is it worth going Wingard to Lycett and have Lycett as F6 for rest of year

    SCaddict · 04/07/2016 at 15:10

    Tough call as The Chad is a proven gun although has been a roller coaster this season with more downs than ups.

    If you have surplus trades then I'd probably pull the trigger as the NicNat void and potential ruck cover possibilities make Lycett quite an attractive option for the money.

    But if low on trades I'd just sit tight on The Chad a little longer as he could always turn things around and go on a fantasy scoring streak.

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 04/07/2016 at 15:30

      I'm hoping so addict.
      The Chad roller coaster has been epic this year though more downs than ups.
      I've ridden it this far so time to buckle in and enjoy a point scoring spree to see out the season.

cattery · 04/07/2016 at 15:21

Hey community!

My team no longer has any rookies but I am still carrying underperforming "premos" in Hall, Blicavs and Libba. With 5 trades remaining, I am hesitant to make any trades but I really want to get rid of both Blicavs and Libba. I'm thinking of bringing in Stef Martin this week, and Daulhaus when he returns. Should I make these trades and risk being exposed if injuries occur?

    Kev · 04/07/2016 at 15:30

    If you can comfortably make the finals in your leagues then hold off. Injuries/players dropped will happen. If not, trade away

    Sez · 04/07/2016 at 15:44

    Love you Shukla! <333

      Nandini · 04/07/2016 at 15:50

      Go away he's my dingo

    Southern S · 04/07/2016 at 16:56


Adam · 04/07/2016 at 15:22

Who is the better option out of S Docherty and Z Williams.
Current backline is Shaw, Boyd, Bartel, Laird, Simpson, Collins, Brown, Lee.

I N Pieman · 04/07/2016 at 15:28

Zaharakis like a satisfied Wang has been rubbed out. Perfect time to get rid of him

Trent · 04/07/2016 at 15:48

Is this the right week to bring in Hanners?

    I N Pieman · 04/07/2016 at 15:53

    Any week is Trent

      Trent · 04/07/2016 at 15:56

      Price wise though? Has he bottomed out?

    Nigel · 04/07/2016 at 16:51

    Price, check. Breakeven, check. Fixture, playing the cats this week at SS. I'd hold off a week or 2 personally. I think I like Neale more

      Steeeve · 04/07/2016 at 17:31

      I'm bringing both in this week, bang bang

Alex · 04/07/2016 at 16:00

Neale, Ward or Parker?

    Lachy · 04/07/2016 at 16:02


      Josh · 04/07/2016 at 16:15


      Steeeve · 04/07/2016 at 17:31

      For value surely? Overall I'd say Neale.

    Clarky99 · 04/07/2016 at 19:35

    Neale definitely.

WunderlichABZ · 04/07/2016 at 16:02

I am involved in a weak SC league comprising workmates who are all inexperienced SuperCoach players like me. I have 8 trades and am thinking of trading Petracca to Motlop because Motlop is only an extra 35K, averages 10 points more and can go big in a very good side. Thoughts please community.

    Derek · 04/07/2016 at 16:55

    Motlop will be a good F7.

    Big G · 04/07/2016 at 17:24

    At this stage of sc season, I only upgrade to proven performers over the year i.e. those that average over 100.

    johnno2908 · 04/07/2016 at 17:53

    I am doing it. Can loophole him every round until end of the season with Greene/Hall and Grimley/Wyatt

    Clarky99 · 04/07/2016 at 19:37

    If you have a non playing player to loophole him, then i would do it. Motlop is very inconsistent so its important you only bring him in if you can loophole him incase he spuds it up.

LeanLover420 · 04/07/2016 at 16:23

Who can I downgrade Adams to?

    Nigel · 04/07/2016 at 16:49

    If defence Broad. If forward probably Silvagni, but ideally wait a week. If you want to keep the b/f link there's a fella for Brisbane that is 160k with a 55 average who's name I can't remember

      The Beard · 04/07/2016 at 18:22

      Hipwood. Though that extra 50k ruins it for me so I went with Broad.

Nigel · 04/07/2016 at 16:57

Ok great community. 8 trades left & 100k. Petracca only rookie on the field. Libba still at M8. How important is full premo ASAP?
1. I could downgrade Tucker to Broad and upgrade Petracca to Zorko, leaving him with about 40k (which is not enough to do something decent with Libba)
2.Wait 2 weeks, downgrade Collins to B or F rookie and upgrade Petracca to Zorko and have enough in the kitty to upgrade Libba with 1 trade.
3.Upgrade Petracca to Buddy and then look to get Zorko in for Libba @M8

I'm leaning towards option 2, there's just no guarantee what sort of rookie I'll end up with plus it delays full premo

    Nigel · 04/07/2016 at 17:02

    For anyone that cares the team is
    B: Shaw, Docherty, Bartel, Laird, Rance, McVeigh. (Collins & Tucker)
    M: Ablett, Dangerfield, Selwood, Pendlebury, Gray, Priddis, Parker, Liberatore. (Trengove, McPher, Phillips)
    R: Goldstein, Gawn. (Goersch)
    F: Merrett, Montagna, Martin, Deledio, Hall, Petracca. (Reid, Ubergang)

      Kev · 04/07/2016 at 17:31

      Have a look at Ward, Nigel. 506k. 9 tons for the year and two in the 90's. B.e is 113 this week so you could do option one and go Libba > Ward next week as long as nothing crazy happens

    Clarky99 · 04/07/2016 at 19:40

    I agree with Kev, you could also look at Treloar, tonned up 10 times this season, but his run home is a little dicey.

    Noigerbour · 05/07/2016 at 06:13

    Thats just funny !

Clarky99 · 04/07/2016 at 17:03

Hanners or Neale?

    Kev · 04/07/2016 at 17:23


Banga · 04/07/2016 at 17:29

Got 2 options, which trades i should do. Got 7 trades left before this week.
1: Trengove down to Glass (Def/Mid Loophole), Kerridge up to Parker or Treloar
2: Petracca down to Glass , Kerridge up to Hanners (This leaves me with Jansen/Trengove as M9 for a few weeks.

Which one community? Really need your help this week!

    Grahame Lebroy · 04/07/2016 at 18:34

    Get Hanners

    Dean · 04/07/2016 at 20:32

    Option 2 and think its a no brainer personally. If Parker scored a 100 or less this week, you wouldn't even contemplate bringing parker in but because he scored a huge 160 some chase these scores which seldom happen.

    Hanners will score you consistent 100+ week in week out, where as Parker will score you 80's to 100's

Kevdog · 04/07/2016 at 17:35

Here's my team

DEF: Shaw, Simpson, Docherty, Gibson, Laird, KKol (Collins, Broad)
MID: Danger, Hanners, Ablett, Steven, Ward, Shiel, Jelwood, Libba (Trengove, Stewart, Macpherson)
RUC: Gawn, Martin (Currie)
FWD: Dusty, Zorko, Montagna, Hall, Wells, Kerridge (Petracca, Phillips)

180k and 9 trades left. Thoughts ?

    Grahame Lebroy · 04/07/2016 at 18:32

    Upgrade Libba and Kerridge. Hold KK for a week or two and see how he goes could be a nice POD for the run home, same with Wells.

    Dean · 04/07/2016 at 20:43

    KKol to Bartel if you can. Otherwise Kerridge to Lids or Merrett. However if it were me I would want to be trading Kkol out ASAP

    Good luck mate.

DDJ · 04/07/2016 at 17:44

Pendlebury or Parker? Pendles was a certainty until Parker hit form again, having jpk and Hannebery already in the midfield makes Parker an unattractive choice. I probably can't have both as this is my last midfield upgrade, making Robbie Gray my m8. Thoughts?

    Gord29 · 04/07/2016 at 17:48

    Pendelbury for the reason you have stated of who you have in your mids

    johnno2908 · 04/07/2016 at 18:11

    Pendlebury for sure. Parker plays forward a lot which is not conducive to consistently high scores. Hanners and JPK get consistent mid minutes, mitchell and parker tend to rotate.

    Grahame Lebroy · 04/07/2016 at 18:29


    Ddj · 04/07/2016 at 20:23

    Cheers fellas

John · 04/07/2016 at 18:03

have one trade figured out this week, going petracca to merrett. Any other future trade suggestions would be appreciated. Cheers.

Def: Shaw, Laird, Simpson, Rich, Rance, Collins (Hipwood, Ruggles)

Mid: Danger, Parker, Selwood, Libba, Neale, Sam Mitchell, Pendlebury, Ablett (Snadden, Phillips, Mathiseon)

Ruck: Gawn, Goldy (Grimley)

Fwd: zorko, Deledio, wells, Martin , Matthew wright, petracca (rose, cox)

The Beard · 04/07/2016 at 18:22

Boyd or Laird?

Grahame Lebroy · 04/07/2016 at 18:27

I like Boys, but don't think u can go wrong either.

    Grahame Lebroy · 04/07/2016 at 18:28


      Bob · 04/07/2016 at 18:39


      I N Pieman · 04/07/2016 at 18:41

      Rather unfortunate spell check right there Grahame! Boyd just for me as well

        Grahame Lebroy · 04/07/2016 at 19:26

        Yeh it got me a beauty there.

        I thought he would drop off this year but he has been one of the elites so far back there. Especially if u grabbed him at 490k earlier on

          I N Pieman · 04/07/2016 at 21:13

          I did get him at 490. Been brilliant value ever since

    steve1 · 04/07/2016 at 19:27

    whatever floats your boat grahame

    The Run Home · 04/07/2016 at 19:48

    Not that there's anything wrong with that

Tommo09 · 04/07/2016 at 18:42

Good, cheap bench cover in defence?

    Steeeve · 04/07/2016 at 19:32

    Kade Kolo. Cheap as you can find and averaged 90 last year. Could finally be turning a corner I think.
    And if not at least you'll be sharing my pain.

The Run Home · 04/07/2016 at 18:43

Thoughts needed on last Def spot
My back line looks like this, Shaw, Doc, Simpson, Pittard, Laird, Adams, Weits Collins
Do I trade out Adams or Weits
and trade in I'm looking at Gibson Rance McVeigh or JJ
thanks in advance for anyone's wisdom

    Kev · 04/07/2016 at 19:14

    Adams to miss the next two with a foot injury

      The Run Home · 04/07/2016 at 19:19

      Thanks that makes that part of the trade easy.

    Dean · 04/07/2016 at 20:52

    Adams to Boyd if you can afford it otherwise get Rance.

Northernsoul74 · 04/07/2016 at 18:48

Marcus Adams out for a couple of weeks.

James · 04/07/2016 at 18:50

6 trades, really tempted to go Wines and Libba to Pendles and Neale but worried about leaving just 4. I have Hall as F7/M9 cover but just S. Collins and L. Austin as defensive cover.

Worth the risk to go superpremo?

    Jim · 04/07/2016 at 19:26

    No guts no glory!

    Dean · 04/07/2016 at 21:11

    James if you don't have pendles get him in.
    Not to mention Pendles is a MUST have as he makes a awesome VC option so when he scores huge you can take them points. Also if you can afford going Wines to Neale bloody jump on it mate.

    This will average you 43 points better each week and thats just going by their averages.
    So it will more often then not generate you 80 to 100+ points per week which is massive considering the difference how much ONE solitary point can make.
    I also have Wines & Libba however I only have $4,000 and 5 trades left so I cannot upgrade.

    This is my Midfield if it helps mate: Dangerfield, Pendles, Hannebery, Ward, GAJ, Steven, Libba, Wines (Dunkley, Trengove, Mathieson)

      James · 05/07/2016 at 00:05

      Cheers Dean, you've eased my concerns about the move. You're right, trades in the bank aren't points. Feeling good about the move although with Wines and Libba being right on the cusp of premo increased concern.

      Mids are now Dangerfield, Pendles, Hannebery, Neale, GAJ, Parker, Priddis, Rockliff.

      Wish I had taken Ward (or Jelwood) over Priddis way back when but hopefully he kicks off after this week.

Dont Blush Baby · 04/07/2016 at 18:56

I'm going Kerridge to Buddy with a BE 49, and only costing me 30k,

    I N Pieman · 04/07/2016 at 19:10

    Great trade

    Clarky99 · 04/07/2016 at 19:41

    Like it a lot

Tommo09 · 04/07/2016 at 18:58

Just a quick question
You know the reputation meter, how do you gets yours to be higher?
I have been trying to figure it out but I can't

    Kev · 04/07/2016 at 19:11

    I think it goes by likes

      Ok thanks

      Derek · 04/07/2016 at 19:16

        Steeeve · 04/07/2016 at 19:36

        I don't get the reputation meter.. how do you not have your points highlighted Derek?

          I'll ask my teenage kids, they care about all that stuff

Bolton's Blues · 04/07/2016 at 19:26

6 trades left

Shaw, Laird, Rance, Bartel, Doc, Simpson – Collins, Lee
Danger, Ablett, Sloane, Shiel, Cripps, Parker, Pridds, Libba – Dunkley, Trengrove, Stewart
Gawn, Goldy – Grimley
Martin, Joey, Wells, Hall, Lids Tracca – Rose Phillips

480k in the bank
Thinking Tracca > Zorko and Libba to Pendles

going for league wins, im 5th same % as 4th, 2% from 2nd (4 games behind 1st who is 12-1)

Other than that, i can only see Cripps being my downfall in my team, but i picked him for a reason, so im sticking with him, 4 injury trades left, below avg bench cover but ill have to deal with it

    I N Pieman · 04/07/2016 at 21:21

    Great trades but 4 left will mean you'll need some luck. Hold as many as you can for finals. You have no choice but to hold Cripps

Grahame Lebroy · 04/07/2016 at 19:58

Was going to say your low on trades but then realised I will only have 5 left after hitting full premo this week….not good

Billy Bob · 04/07/2016 at 20:01

Is trading out Danger for Silvagni to free up cash and bring in Hanners and trade Danger back in next week and Zorko for petracca?

    Southern S · 04/07/2016 at 20:32

    Shark move!

      Gavin · 04/07/2016 at 20:35

      Thanks mate I thought so too!

    Kev · 04/07/2016 at 21:36

    Trade Danger back in for?

tophawk · 04/07/2016 at 20:11

G'day community,

I have one more upgrade to make in my forward line. Kerridge or Petracca to Deledio or Franklin?

Leaning Kerridge to Deledio. Franklin is owned by 30% of coaches and Lids by only 9%.

Kerro's form looks very tired and is likely to bleed more cash than Tracca at this point. My team is based around PODS so this seems like the best strategic move.

Currently ranked 635 and 800 odd points off the lead. Probably can't win it from here, but good POD selections will give me the best chance.

Any thoughts let me know. Cheers

P.S Tossing up between Boyd (14%) or JJ (3%) for my last back premo POD upgrade to replace Matty Dea.

    Gavin · 04/07/2016 at 20:14

    That's easy Kerridge! gives you more cash

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 05/07/2016 at 14:15

    Lids and JJ

    Good luck

      Swans2012 · 05/07/2016 at 14:20

      Roll the dice with lids and jj

Dean · 04/07/2016 at 20:18

I only had 17 players and scored a pathetic 1772 in the last round of those dreadful byes, I thought my ranking was going to go from 5347 to 10,000 however I was shocked to see my ranking improve to 4648

Honestly I am gobsmacked, there will be a ton of people who scored between 1900 to 2000+ that have dramatically improved their rank and im talking in the tens of thousands.

My goal is to finish in the top 1000 as I have done for the past 5 years. Good luck to you all.

Daniel · 04/07/2016 at 20:30

Kerridge or Zaharakis out for Parker, Zorko or Docherty? Whoever I keep will be my m9 for the rest of the season.

    Dean · 04/07/2016 at 21:18

    Forget Parker, don't go chasing his round 15 score because he will score you plenty of 80's & 90s. I also love Zorko and I will be bringing him in for Motlop in round 17

    I think Docherty is a must have but wait another week as he should drop in price.

    Steve · 04/07/2016 at 21:57

    I think I heard on the news that Zaharakis is out courtesy of the match review panel

Confuzzled · 04/07/2016 at 20:53

Feel free to give a lad some advice community. My current team before trades

Shaw laird simpson docherty McVeigh hurn collins Austin
Danger pendles ablett Sloane rocky libba ward cripps b.smith (m9,d7) steward trengove
Goldy Martin loerch
Dusty wells robbo lycett montagna kerridge petracca Philips

7 trades and 265k

My thoughts originally was kerridge and cripps to zorko and hanners but my question is what would you do community???

    Derek · 04/07/2016 at 21:42

    BSmith to Zorko

      Confuzzled · 04/07/2016 at 22:16

      I'm ranked like 7000 odd no chance of glory so I actually traded in smith last week for the win and a cheap Def mud back up lol
      I have kinda screwed up fwd mid swinger tho

        Confuzzled · 04/07/2016 at 22:18

        Yeah was my eventual thinking, kerridge to zorko plain and simple upgrade
        Any other fwd smokys??? Was considerin buddy

          Derek · 04/07/2016 at 22:21

          Kerridge to buddy good

    SteveC · 04/07/2016 at 21:52

    I'd only do 1-trade unless you are in the top 2000 and think you can win overall. Zorko would be my play.

Ryan · 04/07/2016 at 21:24

Boyd or Docherty?

    Kev · 04/07/2016 at 21:37


    Steve · 04/07/2016 at 21:54

    I agree, Docherty ahead of Boyd. The Carlton defence is more settled with their roles. Boyd may need to do a job some weeks that could affect his scoring

johnno2908 · 04/07/2016 at 21:50

388 points off the leader. Whats smarter and gives me a better chance at catching him?
1. JJ at D6 and Petracca at F7/M9
2. Rich at D6 and Motlop at F7/M9 to loophole with Hall/Greene every week.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 05/07/2016 at 13:49

    Not much point me or anyone else giving you advice as you are obviously good at SC based on your rank.
    Q. What does your little man say?
    You must always listen to your little man and back your gut – this has obviously worked so far.
    This is where u will find the answer.

    Southern S · 05/07/2016 at 15:15

    JJ by a mile.

Saalih · 04/07/2016 at 22:13

Have 6 trades and 662k in the bank. 2 premos away from full premo and I an going to trade Petracca and another rookie but don't know who. I have no idea who to bring for last defense and mid spot and price isn't an issue and who should I trade alongside Petracca.

Def= shaw, docherty, Simpson, laird, rance, Ruggles (Collins, b . Williams)
Mid= danger, Ablett, pendlebury, hannebery, Selwood, sloane, ward, Petracca ( trengove, Stewart, Gresham)
Ruc= gawn, Goldstein (grimley)
Fwd= martin, montagna, zorko, deledio, hall, Wells (philips, rose)

    johnno2908 · 05/07/2016 at 08:06

    Petracca to Neale, Stewart to Zerrett, swing phillips to mid. Can loophol rug and collins 2 of the next 3 weeks using Williams hopefully, then upgrade. Or just go Williams to JJ instead of Stewart to Zerrett

fan · 04/07/2016 at 22:54

Need some advice
8 Trades left, $363,500 In the kitty.

Def: Shaw, Doherty, Simpson, Boyd, Laird, Rich ( Collins, Lee)
Mid: Dangerfield, Pendles, Ablett, Selwood, Rockliff, Priddis, Libba, Davis (Petracca, Trengove, Joyce)
Ruck: Gawn, Martin (Wyatt)
Fwd: Montagna, Deledio, Hall, Greene, Zorko, Wells (Barlow, Phillips)

Obviously Davis and Petracca are ripe. Rich would be a good swing cover. Was thinking Hannebery/ Neale for Davis, Petracca for McVeigh?

    Kev · 05/07/2016 at 08:23

    Like it. I'd take Hannebery over Neale

    fan · 05/07/2016 at 09:27

    Eliminates my mid /fwd swing in the mids though

      Rick Grimes · 05/07/2016 at 12:41

      Swings are nice to have but I think you need to go for the best in each position. You still have good bench cover in Collins who we've seen can go big.

Davonaise · 04/07/2016 at 23:38

Wonder if Adelaide FC has Rockliff on their radar?

    Southern S · 05/07/2016 at 15:22

    What do you mean? There's no chance they are looking at recruiting Rockliff.

    pod · 05/07/2016 at 15:44

    more likely the Saints but you never know

FlyingHawkAssassin · 05/07/2016 at 01:36

Managed to survive the bye rounds just looking for some advice on some trades this week!
Laird, Shaw, Docherty, Simpson, Rich, Amt, Brand, Collins
Danger, Selwood, Ablett, Priddis, Gray, Libba, Bartel, Parker, Macpherson, Stewart, Smith
Gawn, Martin, Cox
Lids, Martin, Wells, Montagna, Zorko, Franklin, Tracca, Phillips
5 trades left and 218.5k left in the bank

I am going Tippa to Neale or Hanners this weeks for sure by swinging Bartel back into the defence.
Might go with Libba to Sam Mitchell as a shark move for only 1k.
At this stage could also upgrade Rich to maybe JJ but thinking of maybe just holding on Rich all year as D6.
My brodie smith to Simpson trade last week really saved me from a terrible score.
Maybe I should look into getting mid cover to swing into forwards but am worried it will cost too many trades as I do not have many left

Thanks in advance for any help!

    Kev · 05/07/2016 at 08:28

    I'd probably just do the AMT trade, Hawk. Making luxury trades now is gonna hurt if injury strikes and you can't cover it

Noigerbour · 05/07/2016 at 06:14

Has anyone seen ritchie

Tommo09 · 05/07/2016 at 07:51

Should I upgrade Tippa to JJ or Libba to Neale this week?
I can only do one, the other will be done next week

    Tommo09 · 05/07/2016 at 07:54

    Also, who out of Austin, Petracca, Trengove and Hopper should I downgrade to a non-playing rookie
    I already have Darcy MacP in mids, Barlow and Phillips on fwd bench and Collins and Austin on fwd bench
    If I do Petracca, Phillips will play until Barlow gets back, but it gives me the most cash for any luxury upgrades I will do

      johnno2908 · 05/07/2016 at 08:34

      Hopper LTI and has done sfa since his first game. If you need the cash and dont need the coverage, go petracca

        Tommo09 · 05/07/2016 at 08:36

        I am just worried about having no cover as I will have Phillips playing and Barlow and a non-playing rookie on the bench and no cover until Barlow gets back

    johnno2908 · 05/07/2016 at 08:30

    McDT to JJ statistically is better. Working on averages, if you have McDT and Neale you will score ~187 points a week. JJ and Libba you score ~198 points a week. Plus Tippa looks to be slowing down

    Kev · 05/07/2016 at 09:05

    Time for Tippa to go, Tom. He has lost almost 20k after peaking at 384k, projected to lose another 12k this week

      Tommo09 · 05/07/2016 at 09:13

      Yep, Tippas gone
      JJ in
      Just who to trade out for cash?

Beady Eye · 05/07/2016 at 11:10

McVeigh or JJ as my final D5?

Trades are tight so stuck with Thumper at D6.

    Rick Grimes · 05/07/2016 at 12:39

    JJ I reckon. I have McVeigh and his recent games have been good but not prolific. Was barely hitting 80 most weeks for a while there. IF JJ stays fit I think he'll outscore him.

      I N Pieman · 05/07/2016 at 14:02

      Agree with Rick. I've had McVeigh for quite some time & have been disappointed. Plays Fwd & Def & no mid rime whatsoever

        Dont Blush Baby · 05/07/2016 at 14:25

        I've been happy McVeighs last 5 games with an average of 101, I'd take for a defender any time.

        JJ's average was the same before he went down and it might take awhile to back to a 100 ave, also McVeigh is also Def/Mid

    The Ranger · 05/07/2016 at 15:27

    No love for Enright?

Nathan · 05/07/2016 at 13:28

Gday community
Full premo and looking at moving some premos for the elites
6 trades 120k in bank and im looking at
Gray and priddis for hanners and neale
Cost around 90k and leaves 4 trades

    Swans2012 · 05/07/2016 at 13:50

    sorry but for me that's a solid waste of two trades, if your keen to blow the trades I'd rather you go a standard one up one down off the bench bringing in Neale or hanners and slipping gray/priddis to a loopholed m8/m9 and cover.

      Nathan · 05/07/2016 at 14:32

      I would if i could
      But my best bench cover is petracca
      So no value to use

        Swans2012 · 05/07/2016 at 14:55

        Then hold, or even one of your sideways if you must and petracca to a hall or a gaff who will both average 100ish from here and make good cover/looper options.

    I N Pieman · 05/07/2016 at 14:04

    Agree with Swans. I just can't see a big enough point differential gain (if at all) to warrant those trades. Stick fat & wait for problems. They will come & you'll regret sending premos sideways

    pod · 05/07/2016 at 14:06

    ha ha

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 05/07/2016 at 14:38


    There is no guarantee Neale will outscore those 2 going forward so why trade?
    Hannas maybe but both gray and pridda could outscore Neale on the home stretch

    Surely there is another area that needs attention first?

      Nathan · 05/07/2016 at 15:01

      On field i dont think so
      Off field no real cover
      But heres my team so you can see what im working with
      Shaw docherty simpson laird rance mcveigh
      Collins lee
      Danger ablett selwood parker ward pendles gray priddis
      Trengrove joyce phillips
      Gawn martin
      Martin deledio zorko wells greene hall
      Petracca grimley
      Just quickly too
      I think wells is an issue due to his body
      Greene has an easy run so im not looking at moving him on
      And hall is back in the mids so same here too

        Clarky99 · 05/07/2016 at 15:20

        Maybe Martin up to Goldy?

          Nathan · 05/07/2016 at 16:15

          I went martin when nic nat went down instead of goldy
          And so for he's infront but ill see how they both return

Swans2012 · 05/07/2016 at 13:57

Petracca to hall as m9 loophole/cover for me this week puts me full premo with hall and cal Sinclair covering (and loopholing) ruck and forward lines. Collins to shaw in a fortnight will see me with 3 trades and premo cover on all lines. Light for trades but cover makes me happy, dunno about everyone else but gee I've had a tough season……

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 05/07/2016 at 14:30

    I hear ya brother

    Worked out after Rd 1 didn't have the 22 I wanted on the park till Rd 10 with a premo (at least 1) usually a pod sitting in the pine.

    Pretty happy with team now 6 left in the chamber but tracca (dpp) and Collins bench backup.
    Not ideal but it is what it is.

    Derek · 05/07/2016 at 15:04

    Hi Swans, worst year for me since I was a rookie. I was too stubborn early with injuries and found myself 70,000th after 6 rounds. Flying home now but damage was done.

    How are you doing? Can't believe you don't have Shaw.

    What is #1 thing you have learnt this year?

      I N Pieman · 05/07/2016 at 15:38

      For me Derek it was simply don't have many & if any mid pricers. DeGoey: Fail Lonegran from GC: Fail Hall Jury is out but closer to a Fail Rich: Fail. Guns & Rooks wherever possible

        Derek · 05/07/2016 at 16:58

        I spent too much in defence thinking there were no defence rookies. In the end that was where all the rookies were. Had BSmith at D5 and Dea at D6.

        Starting BCrouch instead of Libba was a fail and then holding him, disaster.

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 05/07/2016 at 15:44

      Mine was something that I should have paid heed to after last year. Slow to learn.

      Don't start players esp premos who haven't had a full or or have had limited pre season no matter how good they are or appear to be going in the pre season.

      Ablett 2015
      Fyfe 2016
      2017? Not gonna happen. must b good to go.

        I N Pieman · 05/07/2016 at 16:05

        Excellent point Trigger. Rocky this year for me to. Started with him again after a minimal preseason & traded him. Then back in again. I also went mega early on McVeigh Joey & Lids trying to get a big POD. Didn't work out. Paid big overs

          TRIGGER HAPPY · 05/07/2016 at 16:11

          Oh yeah rocky forgot about that one.
          Yep did the rocky dance again.
          But he is one of the few guys who has such a big ceiling and when he plummets in price is hard to ignore.
          I mean I went Smith to rocky for about $60k!
          Ya just take that deal and hope he sees it through.

            I N Pieman · 05/07/2016 at 16:40

            Agreed. The ceiling of Rocky & numbers he puts up are impossible to ignore. And we get sucked in. Let's hope he makes it to the finish line. He's trying to up his value so he will go hard. Pray he doesn't break again.

              TRIGGER HAPPY · 05/07/2016 at 16:53

              Yeah if he holds up he could really go on the tear similar finish to last year please.

      Swans2012 · 05/07/2016 at 16:33

      Yeah my season was cooked from the start, just went in too mid price heavy. Worst example- chose lonergan (gc) and cal Sinclair instead of weitering and gawn, then everything I touched just didn't quite happen for me. Ended up 28kish ranking for a few weeks around round 6, now back to just inside the top 5k and will push for top 1000 but gee its a long way from battling it out in the top 100 last year hey bud!

      As for lessons as touched on by pieman and trig, beware the under prepped premo, and the same lesson i seem to learn every year, stick to bloody guns and bloody rookies!!! Funnily enough despite all this I'm fairly happy with how my team has come together this year now!!

      And as for shaw, had other priorities the weeks he was cheap and decided to go against the herd, shouldn't have but hey he'll be 500k and in in a fortnight so it probably only cost me a couple of 100 points!

Saalih · 05/07/2016 at 15:13

I think alot of people are forgetting that johanisens score of 86 doesn't tell the true story. He scored the game winning goal and the pints for that is probably around 30. First game back and could be a good pod and good option but Imo better premo options. Though I would love to see jj be top 5 defenders

    Southern S · 05/07/2016 at 15:20

    People are trading JJ in way to fast it makes no sense to me, after one game of 20 touches.

      Derek · 05/07/2016 at 16:35

      Teams need to be full premo by now, no point waiting

    I N Pieman · 05/07/2016 at 15:31

    He actually only got about 15 points for that goal. The reason I'm interested is his run home. It's very nice. For what he's capable of he's value. It's between him or Zac Williams for me this week.

Dasha · 05/07/2016 at 15:35
