The Standing Room – ROUND 18

Published by Higgo on

How are you travelling?


Still cleaning the skid marks off your jocks after the pre game Daniel Wells drama on Friday night? I know of one poor bloke who traded him out as the drama unfolded, only to hit the bar and find out he was playing after the game had kicked off. Poor prick!

  • VC – C options

  • Trades

  • Loophole Scenarios

  • General Rants

Get Stuck in folks!




Kev · 23/07/2016 at 09:03

Vc on Pendles last night. No good. Arise Sir Danger!

Wells earnt himself some free passes with me last night. Gets a lot of shit about being injury prone and soft. 29 touches when you can't breathe properly is a huge effort

    Derek · 23/07/2016 at 09:53

    Wells did good. But he will be the talk of the week if he will play next week

JDP · 23/07/2016 at 09:15

Tossing up between Markov & Naismith
Given Goldy looks 'sore' & likely to miss a game before end of season is Naismith worth it?

Danners · 23/07/2016 at 09:20

Well the Supercoach gods have destroyed my forward line this week. At the moment it is
Dusty, Zorko, Montagna, Deledio, Dahlhaus, Hall (Menadue, Naismith)
1 trade, $80k in the bank
Knowing my luck, the player I use the trade on will get injured as well

    JDP · 23/07/2016 at 09:33

    Keep Dahlhouse – Naismith coverage
    I think trade Hall given likely out for a few. Can you get him up to mids & get someone like Ward. If not Kennedy (WC) best bet & unfortunately looks like you will have to cop a zero for Deledio

hedski · 23/07/2016 at 09:29

Vc'd Treloar last night so the C stays firmly on Patrick tonight.

    Top hawk · 23/07/2016 at 09:39

    Vc'd Pendles last night. 115 doesn't cut it. I am going to take a punt and whack the C on Tom Rockliff this week. Got a feeling he could go absolutely massive after his ego has been bruised. I AM NOT FAT!!! I'LL SHOW YOU PRICKS.
    LOL Good luck with dangermouse. He will do the business as always. Cheers

      hedski · 23/07/2016 at 13:03

      Are you still gonna bring danger back in or have you already?

        Top hawk · 23/07/2016 at 13:24

        Still havent got him back. Might not be able to get him again now with all the recent injuries. Only have one trade left and 50 odd K. Right now I am not sure whether to be happy or sad about not having him. There are rumours he may spend time forward as he is carrying a slight niggle. That said, one thing is for sure, my season is seriously on the line here and trading out Danger will make or break me. Time will tell. Good luck mate!

CashCows · 23/07/2016 at 09:43

So community, I have loopholed ziebell and he landed an 85, should I roll the dice with clay Smith,or take the 85 and move on?


    Top hawk · 23/07/2016 at 09:49

    Bank the 85 mate. Anything can happen with Clay Smith. Not worth the risk for a few extra points.

      CashCows · 23/07/2016 at 13:05

      Yes, at best he may only produce a 90.. banked!


Tom · 23/07/2016 at 09:54

Hall out – back Petracca or trade (5 trades left)?

VC on Lachine Neale C on Danger or VC on Gawn C on Rockliff – thoughts?

Dave · 23/07/2016 at 10:36

Is Naismith worth getting? Tippet out 5 weeks and place on long injury list?

    Dave · 23/07/2016 at 10:39

    *long term injury list*

    Pauly Walnuts · 23/07/2016 at 10:40

    I'm going Menadue our for Naismith – generates cash and gives ruck coverage – bang,bang

      Dave · 23/07/2016 at 10:51

      I'm think going Hall to Naismith good move or bad? I want ruck coverage but not sure Naismith is the right coverage?

        Stavros · 23/07/2016 at 12:04

        Im doing the same. If naismith keeps playing well he should hold nankervis out of the side until tippet is back in round 22/23.

Cliffy · 23/07/2016 at 11:07

Hi guys,

Well it's amazing what can happen in just a few short weeks… Team was all set and I had just about a comfortable number of trades left for Finals… Fast forward to this week and I'm left with 3 trades due to numerous injuries, and staring at 2 donuts in my Forwards… :'(

Need some help guys, with Barlow, Hall and Menadue (one of my bench cover players) out, was thinking of these trade combos…

$14,900 left in the kitty (prior to trades)

Option 1:

Barlow – Franklin
Hall – NRiewoldt (via Menadue DPP)

Option 2:

Barlow – ZMerrett
Do nothing with Hall, save the extra trade, cop a donut

Playing for leagues at this point on, even though I've stayed in the top 1% overall despite all this pain for the last few weeks.

    Cliffy · 23/07/2016 at 11:09

    Will throw in one more option…

    Option 3:

    Barlow – Franklin
    Hall – Gunston

      johnno2908 · 23/07/2016 at 11:25

      I like Option 3. Buddy could go big, Gunston very consistent

johnno2908 · 23/07/2016 at 11:25

Hall and Deledio to
Option 1: Zerrett and Lycett with 3000 left.
Option 2: Franklin and Lycett which leaves me enough to bring in Dahlhaus for Petracca when his price drops in a few weeks.
Option 3: Hall to Franklin only and keep 5 trades and hope for best with Deledio. Has there been any word on Deledio other than TBC?

Real concerns about Goldy.

    Redgumwon · 23/07/2016 at 11:49

    I think trade Deledio out with Hall. Sometimes we get players or hold players for to long because of their past reputations. I brought in Deledio at top dollar and to be honest he hasn't pro formed this year like other years. To be brutally honest there are better preforming options out there than Deledio this year. If you have the trades then. bring in Merrett for Deledio. I sure wish I went for Merrett when he was cheaper than Deledio

Leeds17 · 23/07/2016 at 11:44

VC Gawn into Danger C
VC Danger into Zorko C

ethan · 23/07/2016 at 11:46

Welcome Jack Gunston

Banga · 23/07/2016 at 11:56

Am i silly to be considering not puttin the C on Danger tonight, and use JPK or Hanners instead? Just thinking he may play a lot foward tonight and Crows are in good form. Whilst the Swans boys are playing Carlton. Thoughts?

    Pauly Walnuts · 23/07/2016 at 12:03

    My thinking is similar, I've gone Hanners into Rocky

    Moustachio · 23/07/2016 at 12:04

    Thinking along similar lines. I am thinking their whole narrative about playing Danger forward is dubious, maybe he has an injury niggle.

    Then again he phoned in a 140 last week so…

      Clarky99 · 23/07/2016 at 12:57

      He started in the midfield and moved forward in the second half.

gareth · 23/07/2016 at 12:06

Thinking of Tom Lynch GC for hall, or is it buddy or roo…??
already have montagna, hanners & parker

Mick · 23/07/2016 at 12:13

One spot left, Libba for JK or Sloane? Looking @ SuperCoach finals run? Already have Parker & Hannerbury . Can Sloane handle the tag ? Particularly round 20 against Robinson (lions) ?

Tommo09 · 23/07/2016 at 12:16

Going danger into Rocky

    jockreynolds · 23/07/2016 at 13:08

    Same here mate. Rocky could go right off tomorrow

Hawks · 23/07/2016 at 13:10

Going Danger into Dusty. Hawks don't tag, look what Ablett did against Hawks a month ago.

Winter · 23/07/2016 at 13:28

VC Neale into Danger or VC Danger into Rocky ??? Help

    Winter · 23/07/2016 at 13:29

    Or even Neale into Rocky but last times I didn't use Danger he scored like 230 followed by like 170 so yeah

Liam · 23/07/2016 at 13:28

Rocky or Zerrett Captain ?
Already used vc on Pendles and 115 doesn't cut it.

    Moustachio · 23/07/2016 at 14:56


    …………………or Danger

red5 · 23/07/2016 at 13:32

I like Hall to Jenkins
Crows have a easy run home.

Connor · 23/07/2016 at 14:29

Can't believe I spent so much time studying who to bring in for A. Hall only to realise he had already started playing! #donuts

Shake n bake · 23/07/2016 at 15:09

Only went Hall to Naismith I put Naismith on the pine as an emg hope he gets close to or over 90pts so then I wont trade Patracca to Merrett this week and save a trade.

Clarky99 · 23/07/2016 at 15:26

What should i take from Collins instead of bringing on Savage?

    Shake n bake · 23/07/2016 at 15:33


Johnny · 23/07/2016 at 15:57

Time to go hanners you are shit

I N Pieman · 23/07/2016 at 16:10

The match up of the season. Jock vs Pieman! Always goes down to the wire

tuxCS · 23/07/2016 at 16:21

Not to be a pain Dan, but where is that blistering early season form that we loved so much?

    Sarah · 23/07/2016 at 16:22

    Trade that trash out to jpk next week like me. Jpk always ends the season strong.

      Derek · 23/07/2016 at 16:41

      I put the VC on JPK. Awkward score to take. I think I will

      tuxCS · 23/07/2016 at 16:44

      even if i had trades i wouldnt

Derek · 23/07/2016 at 16:30

I can't watch Carlton games anymore. I don't have either Simpson or Docherty.

    I N Pieman · 23/07/2016 at 16:34

    Same. It's so painful

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 23/07/2016 at 22:53

    Good game but. Blues bought the pressure but lacked that bit of polish. Really need a fwd.
    Bolts the clarkson clone got em up and about.

    Hannas must have had at least 10 kicks where he picked out a navy blue jumper. Shocking game for the lad, he's better than that.

tuxCS · 23/07/2016 at 16:51

On the topic of Hanners, just know that you dont score 100+ 11 games in a row by luck. He's a premium and he's going to continue being a premium.

    Moustachio · 23/07/2016 at 18:05

    Since Tippett went down his scores have been trash. Not sure if coincidence or not but its getting hard to ignore.

He Man · 23/07/2016 at 17:09

Take Ryan Davis 82 or play Liberatore?

    Dean · 23/07/2016 at 17:25

    Play Libber mate.

      Shake n bake · 23/07/2016 at 19:41

      I took Davis score and I put Libba on the bench!

        He Man · 23/07/2016 at 20:35

        I should have done the same.

poloko48 · 23/07/2016 at 17:17

Priddis going off at the moment – on 71pts 5mins into 2nd qtr thanks to 10 disposals, 9 (!) tackles, 1 goal.

    Derek · 23/07/2016 at 17:20

    Most people have him but good luck to them who put the VC on him

      poloko48 · 23/07/2016 at 22:53

      Only 23% mate so there's still 77% that don't, wouldn't call that most…

        The Ranger · 23/07/2016 at 23:43

        That's 23% of all owners. 90% of the top 1% would own him.
        I think that's what Derek meant.

    Moustachio · 23/07/2016 at 18:05

    Starts strong a lot lately

Dean · 23/07/2016 at 17:24

Who's taking Collins 78 rather then play Rich against Essendon? Tough call.

TheBornLoser · 23/07/2016 at 17:30

I'm a strong chance to set some kind of record.
On track to finish with the most points scored and highest ranking in my main league……. but miss the finals due to not winning enough H2H matches.

    tuxCS · 23/07/2016 at 17:37

    wow bl man

    Dean · 23/07/2016 at 17:43

    care to define what your projection is? And post your team mate?

Dean · 23/07/2016 at 17:41

Pieman do you have Collins mate? I have Rich also and am contemplating taking Collins 78, its a tough call because they are playing Essendon, if it was any other side I wouldn't be thinking about it.

Dean · 23/07/2016 at 17:48

Rich has a high score of 102 and a low score of 78 against Essendon at ES…

His high is only 14 points higher then Collins, bloody tough call.

    I N Pieman · 23/07/2016 at 20:39

    I have rich but I have McVeigh. So I have to play both! Bugger it

andy_89 · 23/07/2016 at 17:50

Take 78 from Collins or punt on Savage?

Dean · 23/07/2016 at 17:51

Are you new to SC mate? As soon as the round has started and once you trade there is no turning back.
You can check SC scores on Fanfooty for free.

    Moustachio · 23/07/2016 at 18:02

    … and the noobness is now immortalised 😀

Bill · 23/07/2016 at 17:59

Who reckons scores higher Rocky or Danger? I think Rock might go off tomorrow?

    Moustachio · 23/07/2016 at 18:01

    Rock off with your socks off mate

      Bill · 23/07/2016 at 18:09

      What is that suppose to mean?

        Moustachio · 23/07/2016 at 18:35

        As if you dont know what I mean you stupid c*nt

          Bill · 23/07/2016 at 18:46

          P*ss off you [email protected]

            Moustachio · 23/07/2016 at 19:03

            That wasn't me ^^

        Clarky99 · 24/07/2016 at 09:26

        Its pretty obvious mate, the fact he included "rock" means Rocky.

Moustachio · 23/07/2016 at 18:34


Boltons Blues · 23/07/2016 at 18:41

What a week and it's not even Saturday night yet
Had lids and hall with only 2 trades and no cover, traded lids to Merrett and will be coping the donut for hall as I'm only going for league wins so I said I will try beat his bench cover with 1 less player
Then the wells carnage happened and lucky I was at work and didn't have time to try and look at the trade button, which was blessing in disguise
Then the magic happened Friday night and today (so far)
Wells Pendles doc Simpson Parker Cripps Priddas Neale all hitting the 100 easily, goldy was a little below and Gawn is still in play and best of all it looks like I'll win my league games with 1 less player which is always nice

Here's to a successful Saturday night and Sunday *rasies beer*

    tuxCS · 23/07/2016 at 18:43

    gotta love it when it all works out huh?

Tony · 23/07/2016 at 19:00

C on Danger or Jelwood guys???

    Moustachio · 23/07/2016 at 19:22

    Will score similar I reckon, stay on Danger in case he goes mental

Jimmy · 23/07/2016 at 19:12

Maxy Gawn scored 131 pre-scaling, do I take that or stick with Danger as C?

    Moustachio · 23/07/2016 at 19:22

    Take Danger

    Shake n bake · 23/07/2016 at 20:41

    I took gawn

Shake n bake · 23/07/2016 at 19:13

I traded hall for Naismith banked 310k but I played Patracca instead of Naismith looks like Patracca will scale over 100 very risky but paid off also had Gawn as vc do I take it or leave it the c on danger???

hedski · 23/07/2016 at 19:20

Collins 78 vs Ruggles?

    Shake n bake · 23/07/2016 at 19:27


johnno2908 · 23/07/2016 at 19:21

After watching Goldy last night i decided to trade in Lycett. 118 prescale cant complain

    Top hawk · 23/07/2016 at 20:45

    I don't have Goldy, but I reckon grabbing Lycett will hopefully get you forward flexibility with all the injuries on that line.

    Who is your other ruckman?

      johnno2908 · 23/07/2016 at 21:25

      Gawn. Hopefully will be able to go petracca to dahlhaus in a few weeks which will make lycett f7/r3.

        The Ranger · 23/07/2016 at 22:06

        I picked up Lycett as my F7 last week, bloody happy I did with Hall and Lids out!
        Dahlhaus will be risky first up surely? Might take a week or two to find his feet.

          johnno2908 · 23/07/2016 at 22:13

          Yeah, will wait a couple of weeks

FlyingHawkAssassin · 23/07/2016 at 19:48

Trading out Brodie Smith instead of Rich a few weeks back has hurt me. If Rich does shit I would be tempted to go Rich to Brodie but probs wont because it is a waste of my trade.

    Dean · 23/07/2016 at 20:02

    And Smith goes HUGE when you pi$$ him off.

Bill · 23/07/2016 at 21:19

Danger is an absolute deplorable piece of shit!

    Top hawk · 23/07/2016 at 21:26

    Big call that.

    johnno2908 · 23/07/2016 at 21:32

    Surely the majority of teams in contention have him? And a lot will have the C on him. I have the VC on him and will be hoping Rocky can go large tomorrow.

Dom · 23/07/2016 at 21:32

Thoughts on trading out hanners for an in form premo such as steven or selwood with 6 trades left?

    The Ranger · 23/07/2016 at 22:09

    Brave move. The SC Gods would probably injure whoever you brought in. They're like that.

    Moustachio · 23/07/2016 at 23:54

    Would do it for sure with 6.

    Clarky99 · 24/07/2016 at 09:30

    Definitely not! Have you seen his scores prior to his form slump? I can almost guarantee you the week you trade him out, he will go large.

Liam · 23/07/2016 at 22:04


    Liam · 23/07/2016 at 22:06

    What's par this week ?
    Looking at around 2400.

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 23/07/2016 at 22:40

      Unless there r some huge scores tomorrow i would say 2250 would be around par. Most teams r covering at least 1 premo with some bench coverage and would have at least 1 probably more of hannas, libba, sloane, joey, laird, goldy, JJK, buddy, tmac, boyd who scored well below what they r capable of and their avg.
      And have dangers 111 as capt.

      so 2400 would be a cracking score.

      I've played 13 and just under 1300 with a couple of large and crap scores in that lot.

Top hawk · 23/07/2016 at 22:07

Sam Menegola is officially on my watch list for 2016-17 season. He has made a real impact tonight. Good stuff!

Top hawk · 23/07/2016 at 22:41

Patrick Dangerfield with 111 has blown this comp wide open!

TRIGGER HAPPY · 23/07/2016 at 22:43

Got tracca's 100 as an E in my fwd line.

Think i will put the chad on the pine as playing gws and take traccas banked 100?

    Dean · 23/07/2016 at 22:57

    I sure would.

    Juzzy · 23/07/2016 at 23:33

    Same here Trigger.

    But I am going to bench "hit or miss" Toby Greene. A solid ton versus a "who knows what" seems like a lock.
    Now we just keep our fingers crossed as Wingard and Greene kick 7 goals each tomorrow 🙂

    Shake n bake · 24/07/2016 at 08:45

    I took a risk and started him for Hall.

Dean · 23/07/2016 at 22:56

Poor bulldogs, not good with Wallis broken ankle, Redpath looks like he needs a knee reco and Morris Quad injury.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 23/07/2016 at 23:00

    Geez had no idea that they had that much carnage was watching the other game.
    That will really test their depth and resolve.
    Cats Friday night. Doesn't get any easier.

    Northernsoul74 · 23/07/2016 at 23:20

    It's been a very tough night.

    neil demons delight · 24/07/2016 at 08:43

    bulldogs must find positives.Boyd andSmith good.Need the whole list to lift particularly Boyd.many will support them and saints

Ruth · 23/07/2016 at 23:30

Keep deleido or trade to zac merrett.
Just have enough cash to make the trade.

    Kev · 24/07/2016 at 08:31

    4+ trades then do it

    Derek · 24/07/2016 at 09:36

    Yes. I'm $6k short. If had cash I would have done

Dean · 23/07/2016 at 23:40

What does everyone thing par will be this week 2350?

    johnno2908 · 24/07/2016 at 07:28

    I was looking good until last nights games. Currently 1509/15 with Rocky C. Laird, Montagna, Sloane and Ruggles let me down

FlyingHawkAssassin · 24/07/2016 at 00:04

Had vc on Danger and he didnt score high enough to take it. My options for captain are Dusty, Zorko, Gray, Shaw, Ward. I barrak for Hawthorn so do not feel right putting captain on Dust but may do it anyway. Any of the other players are valid just looking for others opinions.
Thanks in advance community

    Nick · 24/07/2016 at 00:14

    I am thinking about Ward and Merrett

    nervous coach · 24/07/2016 at 07:47

    Same dilemma Flying Hawk. Currently have the C on Merrett but tossing up between him and Zorko. My opponents had the C on Danger. Need Merrett to go big to eliminate the stench of failure created by Yeo, Laird, Montagna and Sloane to get me over the line.

    Blueth · 24/07/2016 at 09:51

    there is a slight chance that the lions put Robbo on Merrett instead of Zaha. If they don't then Merrett will go 120+ easily. But I'll be going with Rocky.

    Clarky99 · 24/07/2016 at 10:09

    Zorko will go well against the bombers i reckon.

Tommo09 · 24/07/2016 at 07:52

Currently 1771/17 with Rocky (C), Zorko, Ward, Dusty and Shaw to come
Laird, Franklin, Hannebery and Goldy let me down this week
What am I looking at community?
About par I think

Clarky99 · 24/07/2016 at 09:23

Did you end up taking it Derek?

Kev · 24/07/2016 at 09:28

Anyone have eyes on Libba last night? Numbers were down (only the 1 clearance, 3 tackles) Tagged? Looked sore?

Will drop to around 425k now

    Shake n bake · 24/07/2016 at 09:36

    Lucky I started him on the pine had that feeling he might go low.

      Kev · 24/07/2016 at 10:21

      Have Dunkley's 99 on the bench

    Blueth · 24/07/2016 at 10:09

    i've played footy with bruised ribs before, doesn't inspire you to barge into contests.
    Said it before the game, came back too soon

    Northernsoul74 · 24/07/2016 at 10:58

    Def brought him back too early.

    min0008 · 24/07/2016 at 15:15

    Luckily I traded him out for Rockliff

Merrett, Zorko, Dusty or Ward as C. Need someone to go big to cover the stench of failure (it won't come off) and caused by Yeo, Laird, Montagna and Sloane. Thoughts!!!

    The Backman · 24/07/2016 at 10:58

    I was going to ask exact same question.
    Zerret- will robbo tag him or zaka?
    Ward- got 137 against power in rd 4
    Dusty- got 115 against Hawks in rd 7
    Zorko- my heart is telling me to give him the C, but my head isn't! Haha. Please pursuade me!

    I have vc on Danger and my opponent has Mitchell as cAptain who plays his 300th. What to do?!

      Mick · 24/07/2016 at 11:49

      In the same boat, tough choice but we do have some good options available I think Merrett will cop the robbo tag. I'm a tiger fan but cannot go dusty against the Hawks. For me tossing up between Ward, Zorko & Gray. Good luck.

    Derek · 24/07/2016 at 11:15

    I have VC on JPK 127.

    Considering either HShaw or Rocky as C

      Steve · 24/07/2016 at 11:51

      Take it JPK

      SCaddict · 24/07/2016 at 12:11

      Would probably play it safe and double up on JPK. Rocky SHOULD go huge as he's one angry little vegemite right now but still not sure I'd take the risk over JPK's fairly healthy 127.

      Heater has been ice cold lately (hasn't tonned up since Rd13) so I would avoid that one although if he goes 150 plus today I'm sure you'll tell me about it ha ha.

        Derek · 24/07/2016 at 13:25

        JPK was on 128 before scaling. Thought he would have got more. Awkward score.

          Derek · 24/07/2016 at 14:28

          I went with C on Rocky

            SCaddict · 24/07/2016 at 15:29

            Paying off nicely!

      Shake n bake · 24/07/2016 at 13:16

      Take it Derek I took Gawns 128.

    nervous coach · 24/07/2016 at 12:35

    Thanks for all the responses. Definitely a tough call. On current form, Merrett has been more consistent, Zorko been very solid without being spectacular. Dusty could go big as Hawthorn does not employ a tagger. Ward scored well last week against Brisbane and his Round 4 score was at home. I think I will stick with Merrett and hope it is an open game under the roof. Good luck.

MJ23 · 24/07/2016 at 11:21

1677 from 14, think its about par so far this week

Cameron · 24/07/2016 at 11:21

Take petraccas score of 101 or go with Greene?

    Kev · 24/07/2016 at 11:23

    Take it

    Mick · 24/07/2016 at 12:05

    Take that every day of the week.

Leeds17 · 24/07/2016 at 12:04

VC is on Gawn Scaled down to 128… I should just take it but Zorko very tempting, SC Gods will punish me i think.

    Mick · 24/07/2016 at 12:44

    Take it

    FootyFanatic · 24/07/2016 at 12:56

    Take it, he's only scored higher than 128 twice

Shake n bake · 24/07/2016 at 13:16

I took it

Rocksta · 24/07/2016 at 13:45

I understand why people have concerns about the SC scoring system:
Although I have Ben Keays, he's had 3 posessions to qtr time ( 1K, 2H , no scores), yet somehow has 21 SC points. Go figure!

    Cameron · 24/07/2016 at 13:59

    4 tackles helps

    Redgumwon · 24/07/2016 at 14:17

    Neale had over 4 touches & 1 goal yesterday and only scores 109? If it were Pendles or GAJ that's be 150+ points.

Top hawk · 24/07/2016 at 13:47

Rocky has come out like a raging bull in the first quarter! 11 disposals, (9 kicks, 2 hand passes), 3 marks, 1 free for, 3 tackles, and a goal. If you dont mind!! Rocky does like being called FAT. Hope he can keep going.

    Dom · 24/07/2016 at 13:48

    And only 46 Supercoach…

    Liam · 24/07/2016 at 14:07

    And is continuing it in the second term. Pretty chuffed that I have the C on him.

      Top hawk · 24/07/2016 at 14:21

      You are not wrong there mate. How many SC points is he on at half time?

        Cot Awesome · 24/07/2016 at 14:24


Jokers · 24/07/2016 at 14:29

Ward, Gray, Shaw or Dusty as captain. Leading towards Ward right now and spewing I didnt chuck it on stefan took it off him last second!

LJB · 24/07/2016 at 14:31

C on Rocky. Pretty happy with his 100ish at half time.

Mike · 24/07/2016 at 14:55

Is rocky getting robbed hard or what?

andy_89 · 24/07/2016 at 15:11

Stef having a day out, 125 at 3QT

Neverweaken · 24/07/2016 at 16:30

Need 36 points from Hampson in the second half to win my league game.

Tommo09 · 24/07/2016 at 16:40

Now 2192/19 with Dusty, Ward and Shaw to come
Happy so far but I have realised it could go downhill in just one game

    Tommo09 · 24/07/2016 at 17:13

    I knew it
    Shaw spudding up
    Dusty has stopped

Gavin · 24/07/2016 at 17:20

WTF is up with Shaw 4 @ qrt time?

    Tommo09 · 24/07/2016 at 17:23

    He is costing me a big score

      Moustachio · 24/07/2016 at 18:22

      He is not costing you anything, everyone has him

        Tommo09 · 24/07/2016 at 18:37

        No I was looking at 2550+ but now I will b lucky to get 2500

    tuxCS · 24/07/2016 at 17:36

    He's got a lot of the ball, he's just having a hard time adjusting to the wind, hence why his DE is so low.

tuxCS · 24/07/2016 at 17:34

I'm pretty sure that all of my opponents had S.Martin and Rockliff. Meanwhile i had the blistering combination of Goldstein and Hannebery. Looking at another score below par and its the same story every week, 4-5 premiums are under performing and its costing me.

    Kev · 24/07/2016 at 19:33

    Same boat, tux. Was absolutely flying until today. Some big scores came from the Lions and Hawks game and I had none of them. Not my first Sunday failure!

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 24/07/2016 at 19:54

      Opposite 4 me.
      Super Sunday.
      The angry rock lobster as C with zorko and zerrett in that game. Dusty, gibbo and gray, sheil. Big day.
      I have shaw like everyone else and took traccas 100 put wingard on the bench.

Pman35 · 24/07/2016 at 18:46

Been out all day and just logged on and have got my best year to date score with 2433 at 3/4 time in the PA V GWS game. Have Shaw and Ward playing so I might hopefully be able to jag 2500. What's everyone else looking at and what do you think is a par score this round?

    Tommo09 · 24/07/2016 at 18:50

    2448 with the same players

      Pman35 · 24/07/2016 at 18:59

      We both need Shaw in particular to pull his finger out of we are to crack the 2500. Looks likes it's going to be a pretty high scoring round for most teams.

FlyingHawkAssassin · 24/07/2016 at 19:49

2475 with Ward as captain I guess I will take it. Is his above par or not?

The Ranger · 24/07/2016 at 19:51

I'm guessing there's some big scores out there?
I managed 2543 with Danger as C.

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 24/07/2016 at 20:01

    That's the biggest I've seen ranger well done!

      The Ranger · 24/07/2016 at 20:37

      Thanks TH. How you travelling?

        TRIGGER HAPPY · 24/07/2016 at 20:44

        2457 some gr8 and avg scores
        Super Sunday 4 me, cats/crows sat night stung
        Won 9-10 leagues. I was tied in the 10th before sheil got scaled back 5 points. Lol.
        But very happy 3rd week in a row scored over 2400.

          The Ranger · 24/07/2016 at 20:56

          Same Sunday for me, was worried after Joey, Laird, Hanners and Sloane scored low but pretty happy with how it panned out.
          Still trying to crack that top 1K.

    James · 24/07/2016 at 20:33

    2566 here with Zerrett as C. Wish I went Rocky but I'll take it, needed a big score.

      Derek · 24/07/2016 at 21:15

      Great scores

    Youngster · 24/07/2016 at 21:28

    Traded Hall to Docherty this week via Suckling (2 trades left). Managed 2519, so I'm super happy. Second week in a row that I've cracked 2,500.

Shake n bake · 24/07/2016 at 19:52

2486 this week played Patracca & Davis so not to bad.
Still have 6 trades left. What is everybody else score &
how many trades do u all have left?

    Dont Blush Baby · 24/07/2016 at 20:05

    Well done mate, I had 2383 with 3 trades left, happy with that as my only concern is the money leagues i'm in.

Boltons BLues · 24/07/2016 at 20:00

2337 with a 0 and won my money league game against a fellow top 4 contender, so pretty happy with that

highest score ive seen is 2590 in my other league

Billioux · 24/07/2016 at 20:03

6 trades nice. 2477. 200k and 4 trades 4 me.

    50_Shades · 24/07/2016 at 23:42

    I don't know how you guys have managed to keep 6 trades, well done. I'm down to two with reasonable cover on every line and still got mid/fwd swing as an extra.

johnno2908 · 24/07/2016 at 20:08

2465 will see me slip a few places I reckon. Saturday night was the killer for me with Sloane, Montagna, Laird and Ruggles. Add Hanners and Goldy as well to that crap.

    Choppy · 24/07/2016 at 20:15

    Same here! 2446 and sloane, laird and joey absolutely stuffed me. Frustrating isnt it?

    Blueth · 24/07/2016 at 20:19

    calm down you lot, 2450+ ain't so bad

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 24/07/2016 at 20:25

      Happy with 2457.
      Sure hannas, Duncan, laird and joey failed to fire but the angry roc lobster, pridda, the beard, zerret and Simmo went off their tits!

      So take the good with the bad. 🙂

        Choppy · 24/07/2016 at 20:30

        No! I only want the good! Lol

          TRIGGER HAPPY · 24/07/2016 at 20:34

          We all do!

          But one thing this game has taught me not everyone will fire and score well every week.

          The week they all do lock in the weekly prize!

Neverweaken · 24/07/2016 at 20:10

2325. Won my league by 4 points. Second week in a row Petracca on the bench has scored better than a mid or forward. Played safe with Danger as captain. Should have gone with Rockliff but hard to risk not Captaining danger. Another failure from Kennedy as a forward. Which I'm guessing means next week he will go mental!!!

SCaddict · 24/07/2016 at 20:11

I see the overall leader coached by Raj, a JR forum contributor, scored 2527 so will be interesting to see whether he keeps or extends his lead.

$50K is well within his grasp it would seem, at this late stage of the game.

    Gavin · 24/07/2016 at 20:14

    Hope he extends his his lead! He's in 1 of my leagues and hope he smashes his opponent this week!

      Gavin · 24/07/2016 at 20:15

      I did give him 1 of his losses in Round 8 this year!

    Derek · 24/07/2016 at 20:18

    Might be a different Raj

      SCaddict · 24/07/2016 at 20:20

      It's our Raj:

        Gavin · 24/07/2016 at 20:23

        Is he ranked #1? If so Yes!

        Gavin · 24/07/2016 at 20:25

        [email protected] if that's his team name I'm 1 of 2 people who have beat him in our league! He's good!

      Gavin · 24/07/2016 at 20:20

      No he's in my league All Champions League

      Shake n bake · 24/07/2016 at 20:30

      It's not Titans raj

        Josh · 24/07/2016 at 20:33

        He coaches both teams mate. You'll see he mentions he coaches TITANS in his Twitter feed last year.

    Josh · 24/07/2016 at 20:30

    Actually I don't think he's eligible for prize money as he coaches at least two different teams that I'm aware of:

    [email protected] and

      Gavin · 24/07/2016 at 20:44

      If that's so yes!

        Ben · 24/07/2016 at 21:03

        Wow what a shame. He is way in the lead

          Derek · 24/07/2016 at 21:14

          Maybe the other team is his grandmothers? 😉

    Moustachio · 24/07/2016 at 23:31

    What does he post under here? I don't recall any Raj's hanging around… But we can still take credit =p

      SCaddict · 25/07/2016 at 00:13

      Only seen him post a few times this season as Chandanraj. Was more prevalent here in previous seasons. He's in a number of the JR community leagues I believe, including one of mine.

      Jock should get him on the line for one of the podcasts. Now has over a 100pt lead so is well and truly in pole position.

      Danners · 25/07/2016 at 13:58

      He was only on in the pre season this year. Has been on multiple years before that

Cam_H · 24/07/2016 at 20:18

Only two good things about this round – no LTIs for my team, and I didn't have to call on Mitch McGovern to cover any late outs.
Fell roughly 200 points behind my "projected score" at the start of the round.
Congrat's to those who did well this week … I am just feeling a bit of "Sunday saltiness".

Steeeve · 24/07/2016 at 20:27

Not normally one to complain about scoring but Ollie Wines was hard done by today. Awful efficiency hurt him (40%) but he had 30 posses and almost all were contested. These kicks might not have laced people out but in the pouring rain he got the ball forward out of packs with blokes hanging off him over and over.

    Josh · 24/07/2016 at 20:36

    Wines is not a proper premo mate. If you've still got him or Wingard at this stage of the caper you relinquish the right to complain lol!

      Steeeve · 24/07/2016 at 20:50

      Still planning to trade him out, and move Wingy to F7. Injuries have put those plans on hold but I'll still have the trades.
      That said today's game was a classic example of a good performance not translating to a good score.

        SCaddict · 24/07/2016 at 20:54

        Yeah you were unlucky Steeeve as Quadzilla was killing it a HT but then Port and young Ollie crapped the bed. Think he only scored about 20pts in the 2nd half.

        You just don't want them doing that in week 1 of the SC finals when they play the Swans at the SCG.

          Steeeve · 24/07/2016 at 20:59

          Agreed, he had a lot of kicks the last quarter but most would have counted for nil. Can bring in almost anyone for him, will be a tough decision. Jack Steven is very tempting.

Ben · 24/07/2016 at 21:08

Any significant supercoach injuries this week?

    Derek · 24/07/2016 at 21:13

    Im sure Wells will dominate discussion at some stage

      Gavin · 24/07/2016 at 21:38

      What? Seriously? That was all BS scam against the Pies! He's fine!

    Blueth · 24/07/2016 at 21:29

    Rockliff rolled one of his cankles and has some niggling stretch marks

    poloko48 · 24/07/2016 at 22:29

    Zac Dawson re-ruptured his heartilage….

MY TWO CENTS · 24/07/2016 at 21:51

Lets hope we get rumours of more injuries this week:
Last weeks rumours:

Priddus -"may not play corked knee" = busts out a 140
Martin – "injured no certainly to play will be a late out" = lazy 162
Rockcliff – "over weight too slow" = an angry 154
wells actually was reported as "out of Friday nights game" = tons up

Long live the rumour mill.

    Pete · 24/07/2016 at 23:48

    Martin never had a injury cloud over him, if he did I didn't hear it.

Liam · 24/07/2016 at 21:52

Just saw your score TopHawk, an absolute whopper!!
I scored 2460 and ranked 2821 for the round, can't imagine where you got.
So what was your round rank Top Hawk ?

    Gavin · 24/07/2016 at 22:21

    I scored higher than that and I'm ranked in the top 400? Sure you aren't referring to Hunger Jacks and just want a whopper with a side of a dead body??

    Cpt Awesome · 24/07/2016 at 22:28

    2698 was the top score for the week. Would have been some monster scores if Hannebery, Buddy, Sloane, Shaw, Montagna, Boyd and Goldy fired, which I had all of the pricks

    Top hawk · 24/07/2016 at 23:23

    Thanks Liam. Pretty stoked with that score. Rocky did us proud today with his 308 points. My round rank was 114th overall and moved from 590 to 295 overall. I am 971 points behind the leader and am probably too far back to win it.

    Still, I will be back next week. Anything can happen in this caper. Good luck next week mate!

      50_Shades · 24/07/2016 at 23:39

      I did 2,575 for 109th which I was pretty happy with. Took Dangers vice score to be sure of the league wins so missed out on an extra 43 for Rockcliff ( should've been a little more bold)…

Hamish · 24/07/2016 at 22:50

What to do with hanners? With such a high be, it might be impossible to straight swap him to a premo after this week. Have 6 trades in the bank. Should I consider moving him on for an in form premo?

    50_Shades · 24/07/2016 at 23:40

    I'd hold Hamish, he's got a good run of games coming up.

    Dean · 24/07/2016 at 23:43


Hubba · 24/07/2016 at 22:53

Hi , scored 2503. Have had such a crap year until this point really struggled to get +2300 consistently . Have been a consistent under 10000 finisher for the last 10 years or so but i won't get there this year . This year i seriously missed the mark starting with too many mid pricers. Just when you think you ķnow this game it gives you something new.

    neil · 25/07/2016 at 11:35

    same here hubba I STEER CLEAR OF MID pricers but where I failed was trusting wanna bees Hall Wingard Greene and not picking up rocky priddis etc but it always comes down to something I am hopeless at conserving trades chasing texs big score too late or getting tucker instead of rug .Its frustrating but I love it and can only get better.Is raj still eligible to win it if he has 2 teams

roger · 24/07/2016 at 23:17

who farted?

    Moustachio · 24/07/2016 at 23:34

    Think it's just the smell of Hanners, Joey and Goldie shatting their respective beds.

tuxCS · 25/07/2016 at 00:41

What do we think the par score was this week? I scored 2344 thanks to a handful of underperforming premiums. I think that skipping on picking up rockliff is going to really hurt me this year.

Gherkin · 25/07/2016 at 06:10

Hi Tux. Reckon you'd be above par score this week, some big scores but the average for the top 10% was 2,328.

I got lucky with all premos actually doing something this week, taking the punt with Rocky as captain helped. 2,652 and a top 10 finish for the week has given mesomething to salvage out of this year Overall rank is outside the top 500 so no chance there but should get a few league wins unless I get smashed by the SC injury Gods in the finals.

Good luck mate.
