RD18: The Heroes, The Villains & The Damned

Published by Jock on

Big Carl CoachKings CommunityRedemption, Community. This round was all about redemption.

First we had to endure the drama surrounding the Daniel Wells late fitness test on Friday night. But he got up for the match and promptly pumped out a ton.

Then a Brisbane pair emerged from the shadows to reaffirm their statuses as scoring monoliths.

Tom Rockliff and Stef Martin absolutely took Essendon to the cleaners, rewarding their owners with more than 300 points between them. Many had the balls to put the big C on Rocky following Danger’s below-par 110, and it paid off handsomely.

Those enjoying the CoachKings contest on Sunday would have been handsomely rewarded if they had the Brisbane pair in their side, as well as Zach Merrett (123) and Brendon Goddard (180).

Nadia playing out the Tonsley Hotel in South Australia reaped the benefits of giving the half time CoachKings Rev-Up to Rocky – sweeping home in the last CoachKings contest of the weekend to snag the $1000 for the highest score of the round. It was also Nadia’s first contest win at the Tonsey – she’s off to their Venue Final on Semi Final weekend.

The Heroes

Tom Rockliff (154 SC) Back to his best. It was against Essendon, mind you, but you have to love the way Rocky just accumulates the pill. Had it 38 times.  Since returning from injury in round 11, has been averaging a whopping 130 SC per match. Very impressive numbers.  Must be considered.

Jack Steven (150 SC) While consistency has been a minor issue this season, there is no denying this bloke has a massive ceiling. His top four scores this season have been 170, 164, 150 and 148. Well on his way to becoming an uber premium, provided he can eliminate scores such as 52 in Round 15 and 60 in Round 7.

Matt Priddis (141 SC) Was like a pig in mud in the wet and slippery conditions of Domain Stadium. Registered a whopping 16 tackles on his way to his second biggest score of the season. Is coming good at the right time, especially with league finals around the corner.

Honourable mentions:
Brendon Goddard (152 SC), Bryce Gibbs (148 SC), Patrick Cripps (137 SC), Sam Mitchell (134 SC), Corey Enright (136 SC), Zach Merrett (135 SC), Max Gawn (131 SC), Jimmy Bartel (130 SC), Joel Selwood (128 SC), Luke Shuey (127 SC), Jack Gunsten (127 SC), Josh P Kennedy (127 SC), Tom Lynch (126 SC), Kade Simpson (125 SC).

The Villains

Dan Hannebery (76 SC) Two weeks in a row. WTF, Dan? Just when everyone was raving about his consistency, he dishes this filth out two matches on the trot. How ironic. Hopefully can bounce back in time for our league finals.

Rory Laird (71 SC) Like his side, simply had an off night. Failed to rack up the pill as much as he usually does and there wasn’t as much of that trademark run off halfback.

Leigh Montagna (64 SC) Is Father Time finally catching up with Joey? A pretty disappointing outing, particularly with his side performing so well. Still, not many other forward options that are averaging much higher at the minute.

Honourable mentions:
Rory Sloane (82 SC).


The Redeemers

Stef Martin (162 SC) That’s the Stef we know and love. After struggling for weeks after that horror concussion, he seems to be back to his prolific best. Finally displaying the form we saw from him last season. With Goldy currently struggling, could be a great POD during league finals.

Daniel Wells (105 SC) Was in serious doubt heading into his match with an injury concern and last minute fitness test. But to his credit, he managed to get up and enjoyed a very solid outing indeed. Well done, Daniel.

Daniel Rich (113 SC) Registered his first ton since Round 9. Was particularly impressive considering he had registered a pair of 60s in his previous two matches. But the majority of smart coaches have most likely already offloaded him.

Honourable mentions:
 Lachie Neale (109 SC), Alex Rance (100 SC), Christian Petracca (99 SC).

The Prodigies

Ryan Clarke (99 SC) Looked good. Very good in fact. Knows how to find the pill this kid. Had 27 touches playing an outside role. Was on the bubble too, rewarding his owners with a strong price rise.

Sam Menegola (97 SC) A late inclusion and he did not disappoint in his debut match. Mature age player who would have debuted earlier in the season had he not been struck down by injury. Keep an eye on him this week before bringing him in. Job security would be somewhat of an issue, also.

Aaron Francis (86 SC) Can play the game, this kid. Took some lovely grabs and looked at home at AFL level. Reads the play nicely. Why have Essendon taken so long to give him a chance? Will be good bench cover heading into league finals, provided he again excels next week.

Honourable mentions:
Sam Naismith (76 SC), Shane Yarren (61 SC).

The Damned

Chad Wingard (61 SC) Has struggled to capture the form that was his trademark in previous seasons.  Gave us a brief glimmer of hope mid-season with three tons in a row, before returning to his ordinary ways. If you have him, time for him to go.

David Zaharakis (52 SC) Who seriously thought it was a good idea to trade this man into their sides? Is beginning to redefine the word “mediocrity” with continuous performances like this.  The only positive is he will be cheap as chips next year and the attention will be off him as Essendon regains their full squad.

Tom Liberatore (56 SC) Those who held him would be cursing their decision. The Bulldogs endured a horror match on Saturday night,  with a shock loss to the Saints compounded by losing two more players to season-ending injuries. Libba’s poor performance added insult to injury.

Honourable mentions:
Sam Kerridge (45 SC).

Another Hero: Peter J Higginbotham


Cameron · 25/07/2016 at 10:31

With Hall out, praying for Dahlhaus to get named….
Somebody please give me some good news!

    jezzahill · 25/07/2016 at 12:18

    With Wallis out I would assume he's a lock to come back in this week.

      Rooster XXX · 25/07/2016 at 12:33

      Big assumption to make. I would say he is extremely unlikely. Wallis injury have absolutely no bearing on likelihood of Dahl playing. Dahl is clearly best 22 so when fit he plays regardless of who is or isn't injured. Just because Wallis is injured and our for the season isn't going to result in Dogs risking Dahl if he is not ready to play.

        Dean · 25/07/2016 at 15:11

        Rooster – Granted Wallis injury wont make a difference to Dahlhaus return.
        However that being said Bevo has stated that Dahlhaus will be ready for the Geelong game (Round 19)
        Bevo has stated that for the past 2 weeks, so that being said it's highly likely that Dahlhaus will be playing this week.

Big G · 25/07/2016 at 10:40

Any update on Lids? Should I downgrade to Roo or Buddy if not playing this week?

    Steeeve · 25/07/2016 at 11:31

    I too would love to know if he's playing this week. Silvagni as cover is not cutting it!

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 25/07/2016 at 12:01

    More tests was the latest I heard

    dan · 26/07/2016 at 15:01

    last thing i heard is no time frame on his injury sounds ike he has to go

Chill · 25/07/2016 at 10:58

Round 16: 'Wow I really need to get rid of Kerridge, just gotta fix up a few things first'
Round 17: 'Keeping Kerridge was the best decision of my life, next week i'll hold Deledio and play Kerridge on field!'
Round 18: 'Kerridge, you piece of sh*t'

    I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 11:19

    Geez I know that feeling mate. I had him filling the hole left by Lids. Thought after his ton last week he'd do well. Kerridge scored 7 points in the second half. Complete TURD!

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 25/07/2016 at 12:03

      They r enigmas aren't they?
      This week my E was tracca.
      Luck of the gods the SC gods that is.

        Moustachio · 25/07/2016 at 17:39

        It's pronounced enemas

    Beezneez · 25/07/2016 at 13:03

    I believe he copped a shoulder injury which slowed him down a little.

      Beezneez · 25/07/2016 at 13:09

      Make that slowed down a lot.

        I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 13:23

        Ground to a halt

Jambo · 25/07/2016 at 10:58

I rocked it last round. I scored 2375! Oh boy, woweee!

    I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 11:17

    Nicely done

Shake n bake · 25/07/2016 at 11:01

Ranked 220 steadily going up my only trade this week looks like Libba to Cripps should have did it 2 weeks ago! Have 6 trades left with $350k in the kitty. How is everybody else travelling?

    Derek · 25/07/2016 at 11:15

    going good SnB.

    Is Cripps the best avaliable?

      SCaddict · 25/07/2016 at 11:30

      Not my personal choice but he has been in ripping form lately. And how's this for a Supercoach finals run for the Blues:

      Dons (SC GF)

      So the Cripps acquisition is not as questionable as it may seem and would obviously be a significant POD and he's still great value at $482K. Although I'd still go for a proven ultra premo myself. Higgo has him and was a significant contributing factor to his whopping score of 2609 on the weekend.

      Steeeve · 25/07/2016 at 11:31

      I like him. Came home flying last year and is hitting good form. That said, I'm likely waiting a week and plucking Sloane for under $550k.

    I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 11:17

    Great Job Shake. Excellent number of trades & cash you have. Sure just about everyone will be envious. I've slid from 300 to 800 in the last few weeks. Can't catch a break. Hanners coming in 2 weeks was a disaster

    Clarky99 · 25/07/2016 at 11:18

    Bringing Cripps in is interesting, thought there would be better options. He would be a good M8/M9 though.

    neil · 25/07/2016 at 11:25

    don't know about cripps snb you must know more than me .Libba got to go though is gaff worth thinking about

      Shake n bake · 25/07/2016 at 11:50

      You got a much needed win this weekend Neil!

        bombers · 25/07/2016 at 12:14

        cant make it but look out next year hope you go well youre up there in our league Agraders next year some of the also rans like derekwill give you a run.WHATS YOUR SECRET TO RETAINING TRADES THATS MY DOWNFALL 3 YEARS IN A ROW cheers neil

          Shake n bake · 25/07/2016 at 13:05

          At the start I only go with player I know and are going to hopefully finish top 6 in their pos. not ones I think that might eg rich wines yeo Greene & smith. Only player I got was Libba because he was $300k every other player I had were rookies or rookie priced.

            Derek · 25/07/2016 at 14:28

            good advice SnB. i started with too many mid-priced players this year. Next year back to strickly Guns & Rookies.

        neil · 25/07/2016 at 12:30

        refer bombers comment snb INTERESTING MOVE WITH DANGER AND PRIDDIS this is the bit I cant manage retaining trades like derek and yourself I tend to chase previous big scores like parker and waite hall greene all sprinters

          Moustachio · 25/07/2016 at 17:41

          Would not put Parker is with those schlubs at all

    Shake n bake · 25/07/2016 at 11:49

    He will be used as my M9 this week with emg on him. Blues play early so can loophole. If he stinks it I'll trade Davis to I think Kennedy.

      neil · 25/07/2016 at 12:18

      ben josh or jjk would imagine jpk Dereks favourite

        Shake n bake · 25/07/2016 at 12:29


    JRod · 25/07/2016 at 12:16

    nice position you are in. I have both Cripps and Libba in M8 & M9 respectively, with 5 trades left (2 needed in DEF). Wanted to trade Libba because he is stinking it up but now considering loophole the two for remainder of the season.

    Dean · 25/07/2016 at 15:24

    S&B I can see the logic in picking someone like Cripps who has scored 102 against Crows, 103 against WCE and 137 against Sydney and with Hawthorn, Saints, Lions, Melbourne & Essendon to play you might be on a decent POD.

    Well spotted and wish you all the best mate.

Clarky99 · 25/07/2016 at 11:17

Got 2 options this week. I have 4 trades left
Option 1: Collins to Rance, allows me to loophole between Savage and Rance.
Option 2: Greene to Zorko.
Option:3 Trengove to Motlop, gives me cover in Mid/fwd, and can loophole with Greene, Joey etc

Which one community?

SCaddict · 25/07/2016 at 11:20

Well done Higgo who blitzed it over the weekend with an insane 2609 and a weekly rank of 34th!

He should be up and about in tomorrow's poddie (and giving it to the ole Jockster) soaring up the rankings to 789th. 🙂

    I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 11:36

    Did he end up pulling the Danger trade?

      SCaddict · 25/07/2016 at 11:40

      Not sure whether you mean he traded Danger out or brought him back in but he has him right now:


      He was musing about trading out Danger during his Rd15 bye and pocketing the cash but looks like he didn't have the stones to go through with it. 🙂

        I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 11:53

        Would have been a very ballsy move! Great round for Higgo that's for sure

        Shake n bake · 25/07/2016 at 12:02

        I did that SC I sold danger wen he had his bye got in priddis at just over $500k brought back danger 2 weeks ago when he got 140. Really started my ball rolling!

          I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 12:56

          We can call that the Shake & Bake manoeuvre!

            SCaddict · 25/07/2016 at 13:05

            The Shake & Bake Fake?!

            Pretending to dump an uber premo … but not really. 🙂

              Shake n bake · 25/07/2016 at 13:13

              It was the SnB shuffle!! But did work out really well for me!

                Hoot · 25/07/2016 at 19:22

                I was another that traded out Danger. The move gained me precious points at the tine yet lost me points shortly after. Still don't have him and am ranked 31st. The gap to 1st is still too large and unachievable imo by playing it safe. RISK!

    Derek · 25/07/2016 at 17:18

    cream rises to the top

Tagger · 25/07/2016 at 11:20

Which teams have heavy taggers?

    Clarky99 · 25/07/2016 at 11:29

    Brisbane, Collingwood have heavy taggers.

    St Kilda, Melbourne, Port, North, Sydney, all do "run with" roles

    Hope i haven't missed anyone!

      I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 11:39

      And just about any team playing Daniel Rich. The Bombers can be accused of tanking yesterday for not doing it

      Tagger · 25/07/2016 at 11:42

      Do you think Martin will get a tag round 20 vs Collingwood?

        Clarky99 · 25/07/2016 at 11:45

        As a pies fan, i reckon Greenwood will go to Cotchin, Martin too explosive and Greenwood won't be able to keep up.

          I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 11:56

          Greenwood will blanket Cotchin & Crisp will run with Dusty

          Steeeve · 25/07/2016 at 12:03

          Yep teams know you can tag Cotchin out of a game. So why wouldn't you go to him?

      Moustachio · 25/07/2016 at 17:44

      Greenwood has been doing more run with role lately as well. Getting own possies, snapping goals.

      Freo is another run with team, tho not now that Barlow is out I guess

Steeeve · 25/07/2016 at 11:30

Been looking to upgrade Ollie Wines before finals and I've found the perfect option.
Easy run home? Tick.
Usually ultra consistent? Tick.
In form? Tick.
Finally going to drop in price? Tick.

Welcome to my team Rory Sloane.

Just need to decide whether to bring him in this week (v Essendon) because it seems a shame to trade Ollie Wines out when he's playing Brisbane. Also Sloane's set for another price drop unless he hits 150+.

    SCaddict · 25/07/2016 at 12:32

    I'd probably hold off one more week if you can, but the Sloane Ranger is definitely the one to get in imho, either this week or next.

      Steeeve · 25/07/2016 at 13:34

      Planning to wait another week. Will have to wait and see what's happening with Lids anyway, I expect I'll have to trade him out

        SCaddict · 25/07/2016 at 14:09

        I'd also try to get The Chad off your field and either trade his @rse out completely or loophole him if you can, in case he does go large.

        Just too big a risk of him crapping his jocks and yours just like he did last weekend.

          Steeeve · 25/07/2016 at 15:20

          Yep hoping I can afford Dahlhaus (once he's back) without sacrificing the Chad.
          I'm not happy with him but seriously who should I go to? I have Dusty, Zerrett, Zorko, Wells and Lids so the main other option would be Joey Montagna. He's not exactly setting the world on fire. At least Wingard's poor score was in heavy rain and wind, Joey just plain crapped the bed.
          Only KPP I'd consider is Buddy who has North in round 22 then Richmond (Rance) in round 23…

    Danners · 25/07/2016 at 14:00

    Wines has just found some form, so HOLD

      Steeeve · 25/07/2016 at 15:14

      That's the thing, he played well yesterday and wound up with an 85. Contested beast, tackling machine, but can't put up the scores I'm after. Will see how he goes this week before making any changes.

    brightsidefx · 27/07/2016 at 12:13

    Dusty went big against Essendon, then Rocky did. Waiting until next week could be dangerous, I can definitely see Sloane putting up 150+

bombers · 25/07/2016 at 11:40

Hope raj wins it but heard he has 2 teams lovely fella in my league and knowledge second to none but rules are rules and my second team could have done well. hope I am wrong

    Steeeve · 25/07/2016 at 11:58

    I'd love to have two teams. Any more than that would be a bit much to manage. But one safe premo/rookie team and another one for the risky picks would be fun.
    I don't do that though because on the very, very far off chance I was ever competing for the money I know I'd be disqualified.

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 25/07/2016 at 12:17

      I've got two.
      One in SC the other in fantasy.
      The fantasy one is chock full of risky guys.
      It has been a roller coaster.
      The rule i have is can't have the same premo in fantasy that I have in SC.
      So danger can't b in but JPK and coliliogio can.
      Hard in the fwd line as not that many premos.
      Just a but of fun and let's u go for some unique and unusual picks.
      Never gonna win doing this but as I said a bit of fun and it's great to watch some left field options exceed all expectations.

        SCaddict · 25/07/2016 at 12:22

        Yes I have 3 teams too, 4 if you include SC Draft.

        I'm actually doing well in AFL Fantasy ranked 450th overall although it's bloody hard to move up the rankings as you always get 2 trades per round (i.e. 44 for the season) so everyone is constantly improving their team each week.

          TRIGGER HAPPY · 25/07/2016 at 12:31

          400 is pretty good perhaps you should change your name to fantasy addict? 🙂
          I'm back around 10,000 as I said though just do this one for fun.
          Ie mids:
          Pendles, Stevens, treloar, Neale, coligio, bont, JPK, Selwood.
          Wouldn't mind that in SC! but limited trades means you need to economise.

    I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 14:21

    Someone won a weekly but they had multiple teams so they got nothing. I'm afraid if Raj does have a 2nd team it will cost him 50k assuming he goes on to win. I think its a fair rule

      Josh · 25/07/2016 at 16:35

      If was coming 2nd or 3rd I'd definitely be tempted to report his double timing butt ha ha.

        Chelsea · 25/07/2016 at 16:47

        Im up there in ranks and not happy about it. Apparently he has it in his wifes email (but not name) so he might get away with it. Its not that I want to win (top 10 would be great) but id prefer someone else who is more deserving won.

          Ben · 25/07/2016 at 16:48

          The SCT community are backing him. I say the jock reynolds community should stand by the rules

            Derek · 25/07/2016 at 17:16

            my son starts a team every year. Loses interest by round 2 so i keep it going for him and like to throw in some crazy POD's. i've jumped on all One Touch Wonders Shark Moves for some fun. This year his rank is/my about the same.

    johnno2908 · 25/07/2016 at 17:02

    Maybe a dumb question. IF say 3 people have multiple teams and are in the top 10, does this mean the prizemoney gets dropped down to 13th?

      Ben · 25/07/2016 at 17:44

      Yes thats the rules johnno

    Moustachio · 25/07/2016 at 17:49

    If he is silly enough to acknowledge having 2 teams publicly, he would have to be counted out. Who's to say he doesn't have 100 teams, it's free to enter. Stick with the rules like everyone else, there are tons of make or break decisions in this game that we all have to live by.

Saundo · 25/07/2016 at 12:53

What the hell is going on with Hodge? Rested in the last quarter! Shit house 62

    SCaddict · 25/07/2016 at 13:00

    Some coaches would have been tempted to bring him in after the round Gaz and Libba got hurt as a value POD premo but he's been bit of a burnman since. He usually performs well at Aurora so hopefully he can turn it around against the Blues this weekend.

    In less than 2% of teams right now so not proving to be a good POD at the moment.

      Chill · 25/07/2016 at 13:14

      Traded out Libba and Ablett to Parker and Hodge. hmm…

        Saundo · 25/07/2016 at 13:22

        Yeah I'd love to trade Hodge out but only got 1 trade left ! He's obviously being nursed for finals.

      tuxCS · 25/07/2016 at 14:38

      Libba and ablett were going to JPK and Priddis at one point, but i wanted to get a POD in, and i really like Sloane. So basically i made the exact wrong decision, it was one of the two and i chose the wrong one. Hopefully i come back next year stronger.

        Hoot · 25/07/2016 at 19:25

        You'd do it again. The river can turn any direction. Unlucky.

    I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 13:27

    I'd be extremely nervous having Hodge or Mitchell. When a top 2 spot is wrapped up they will be nursed & scoring will be ordinary

    Danners · 25/07/2016 at 14:00

    Getting long in the tooth

johnno2908 · 25/07/2016 at 13:25

Had all 4 villains. Luckily i chose to spend the extra cash on Zerrett instead of going Buddy.

    I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 14:11

    Had them all as well. Got Hanners in for Gary. Disaster

      Derek · 25/07/2016 at 14:33

      i thought about who to get for Gaz alot. Spent all week thinking about it and came up with Hanners.

        I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 14:51

        All week I was going with JPK & then last minute went with the safety option. The punishment thus far is about 120 points

          TRIGGER HAPPY · 25/07/2016 at 15:13

          Yep has been nothing been disappointing since bringing him in for gaz. Before that I watched hannas who was in most teams I played blast out a big score week after week.

          Wished I had have stuck to my original plan gaz to zerrett and tracca to gaff.
          this gave me insurance so if a mid or fwd got injured (ie lids) swap merrett into the fwd line and bring gaff off the bench on in the mids.

          Went against my gut and went with the head which said hannas is under-priced and a bargain buy for Gaz.

          Steeeve · 25/07/2016 at 15:21

          I went JPK but only because I already had Hanners. Very happy with him so far though. Hanners not so much.

            SCaddict · 25/07/2016 at 15:32

            Yes went with Gaz to JPK as well and he's performed immaculately so far.

God · 25/07/2016 at 13:32

I have 3 trades left with Hall on my bench still.
Mitch Robinson is on field now but when I trade Hall out he will become my M9/F7
I'd like to hear your thoughts on my proposal
With my remaining three trades i can trade:
Hall –> Jack Gunston
Mathieson –> Rookie
Collins –> Heath Shaw

If I was to make these 3 trades I would then have cover on every line except rucks as I have Robinson (mid/fwd) and a defender most likely Bartel (def/mid).

My main worry is that Goldy looks like he needs a rest and I'd have to cop a donut if he was to miss as I would have no trades left.
The positive of these trades is that I would have the ability to loophole both of my bench players to hopefully score better.

Thoughts community??

    I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 13:48

    I'd hold the trades God & use them as blokes fall over. I've been down the cover path before & not been happy with the outcome

      SCaddict · 25/07/2016 at 13:58

      Burning trades trying to build up your cover hasn't really worked out for me either. I brought in Motlop as a M9/F7 late last season when he was a bargain buy. However he crapped all over me with a 49 and 39 in the last two weeks of the season when I had no trades left.

      Always wished i just kept that trade and used it to swap out an injured/rested ultra premo instead.

      It's one of those ideas that sounds good in theory but often doesn't pan out as you'd hoped. I'm sure it has worked out ok for some coaches though so like anything in this great game there are no absolutes.

Steeeve · 25/07/2016 at 13:36

Tell ya what wouldn't mind Jack Trengove getting another run soon. He was my plan to get cover, but can't upgrade him at this price.

    Clarky99 · 25/07/2016 at 13:58

    I'm bringing in Motlop for him to use as loophole/benchcover. Trengove is at an awkward price.

      I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 14:25

      Had 28 touches in the 2's on the weekend. Should get another run soon you'd hope

        Steeeve · 25/07/2016 at 15:24

        Hope so! I'd love him to beef up another $50k at least. Then I should have the war chest to go straight from him to Dahlhaus.

Big M · 25/07/2016 at 13:57

Very happy with result of both players I brought in this week – Selwood & Gunston

1 trade left, do I go the BIG BANG to be full Premo (minus 1) or hold that last for any injury
Hmm decisions decisions

    I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 14:09

    Hold that last trade as long as you can mate

    Ur so bad · 25/07/2016 at 17:51

    How the f$&k aren't you full premo

MZD · 25/07/2016 at 13:59

Who's more important to trade out ; Libertore, Blicavs or Petracca?

    Steeeve · 25/07/2016 at 15:24

    Anyone you have on the field is the priority.

He Man · 25/07/2016 at 14:47

Liberatore to Neale OR
Davis to Shiel, Scully or Montagna and loophole with Liberatore for finals?

    I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 14:57

    Depends how many trades you have left. Libba to Neale looks nice

      He Man · 25/07/2016 at 15:21

      I've got 4 trades left

        I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 16:22

        I'd hold them for injuries. They will come. Trading warm bodies at this time of year can come back to bite you. But Libba to Neale is a tasty option

Boltons Blues · 25/07/2016 at 14:47

I've got hall with no cover and 1 trade left, I held and won by 30 points this week in a money league with 1 less player, can I do it again? I've got rose and Phillips, Collingwood were touched and another concussion to smith might see Phillips return (unless injury I'm unaware of) rose I don't see getting a gig anytime soon, this is for a top 4 spot aswell.
9k in the bank btw can't afford much

    I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 14:56

    Pies VFL team had a bye. So Phillips didn't get a chance to impress. But I wouldn't be surprised if he got another chance soon. Personally I'd hold the trade. Your last trade should be used on a season ending injury. Also your options with your bank are minimal

Alex · 25/07/2016 at 15:10

Howe Dpp, Wells Dpp or Gunston?????

    Steeeve · 25/07/2016 at 15:25

    I have Wells and am definitely keeping him. But you'd need big plumbs to actually bring him in. Brittle like an old flower pot.

    Clarky99 · 25/07/2016 at 15:27

    I would go Gunston

micky · 25/07/2016 at 15:39

community, who is the better option tobring in for hall
gunston or n.riewoldt

    Clarky99 · 25/07/2016 at 15:55

    Gunston for me

      I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 17:07

      I'd say Gunston as well

    jezzahill · 26/07/2016 at 13:21


Tommo09 · 25/07/2016 at 15:40

This week should I trade Petracca to a premo as he will be at F6 until Hall comes back?
If so, who?
I have Martin, Wells, Zorko, Roo, Buddy, Petracca (HALL, Long)
Also, is there any chance Austin will get dropped so I can loophole?
Scored 2478 last round to move up to 3900

    I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 17:19

    Personally I'd keep Petrecca for cover & get rid of Hall. I did Hall to Zerrett last week. I'd do that if you have the funds. If not Joey

      Tommo09 · 25/07/2016 at 17:20

      I have 3 trades and $222k

        Tommo09 · 25/07/2016 at 17:29

        I might hold and get Dahlhaus in a couple of weeks and loophole

neil · 25/07/2016 at 16:45

great effort shem regardless that's all you need or a shem move maybe goldy to stef only half jocking

The Ranger · 25/07/2016 at 16:51

Top work shem! Good luck mate.

I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 16:53

Brilliant season Shemmist. You will need plenty of luck. Hold the trade as long as you can. Good luck

Ben · 25/07/2016 at 17:00

Similar situation here. Just hoping that alot in the top 50 are low on trades too. Good luck

johnno2908 · 25/07/2016 at 17:05

Great work and good luck for the remainder. 5 weeks left anything could happen.

shemmistwarehouse · 25/07/2016 at 17:19

thanks guys! yeah im only trading if i have an injury or something

    I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 17:32

    Shemmist your actually coming 3rd. The guy coming first is ineligible to win. He has at least 3 teams (breach of T's & C's) & some of my mates dobbed him in to the HS boys today on Twitter. They are now aware of it. He's gone

Josh · 25/07/2016 at 17:25

Great stuff. Btw I wouldn't go around advertising you have left as your competitors could potentially use that info to their advantage in the last few weeks.

It's probably won't be a big deal but I maintain even the slightest edges as it could make or break $50K.

The guy coming 1st operates at least two teams so could get disqualified if he's found to be effectively cheating.

    Josh · 25/07/2016 at 17:26

    *advertising how many trades you have left (I meant).

      Davo · 25/07/2016 at 17:46

      Justice with this Raj bloke to be honest. Good work PieMan

        I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 18:08

        Rules state to win any money you can only have one team. Someone got stripped of a weekly for that reason. He's also rubbed a few of us up the wrong way in the past. Not getting away with that one

          Moustachio · 25/07/2016 at 18:23

          How did he rub people wrong? Thought he seemed nice til I heard this multiple teams fiasco

            I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 18:32

            Not so much me but a couple of my mates. Haven't had much to do with him. But I would t let him get away with it. Not fair for those that play by the rules

          neil · 25/07/2016 at 18:44

          like to hear rajs version before we bag him.Not defending him but he does contribute here so what about it raj

            Josh · 25/07/2016 at 19:10

            The fact that he has now protected his tweets this arvo which mentioned about his other teams is pretty darn incriminating Neil, at least in my book.

              neil · 25/07/2016 at 19:33

              fair enough Josh didn't read them myself but point taken.

The Ranger · 25/07/2016 at 17:32

I'm another that went for Hanners over JPK. There wasn't much to suggest it was a bad move!

Alex · 25/07/2016 at 17:48

Jeremy Howe or Gunston? And why?

    Moustachio · 25/07/2016 at 18:21

    In the forward line? Gunston. Says gun right in the name so can't go wrong.

    Dean · 25/07/2016 at 18:22

    Gunston because I got rid of Hall to Gunstan this week and I think he is the best option if you have Martin, Merrett, Zorko and Joey, I don't really like having Full Forward's such as Franklin & Kennedy because they are more often then not very inconsistent although Franklin has done exceptionally well this season.

    Andrew · 25/07/2016 at 18:27

    GUNston. Reason…. he's a gun

    Hubba · 26/07/2016 at 08:48

    Howe can spud it up. Gunston is more consistent.

Steeeve · 25/07/2016 at 17:53

Would love to know what your starting team looked like! If you have it saved anywhere…

Moustachio · 25/07/2016 at 17:56

Great stuff shem! I am at 16 and am hoping others in the top 10 are also running low so that I can step up and claim $1k at least! May the SC gods wreak havoc upon you all =p

    I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 18:15

    We've moved you up a place today Moustachio. Good luck

      Moustachio · 25/07/2016 at 18:25

      Glad you did it, hope HS care about integrity of comp. Otherwise they will spend their off season hearing about it from me, regardless of whether it would affect me. More integrity = more coaches want to play, want SC to return to the glory days if a few years ago subscribers wise.

        I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 18:33

        They do care Moustachio. Already stripped a weekly winner during the bye rounds

          Josh · 25/07/2016 at 18:48

          I see the bastard has now protected his tweets to selected followers only.

          Yesterday when I looked he was bragging about coming 1st as we all would. But now when I check his Twitter feed now it's gone and protected.

          Obviously a desperate attempt to cover up evidence although I reckon the cat is out of the bag now ha ha.

            I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 18:55

            I saw a copy of that tweet Josh. And probably a few too many people. Caught too many eyes

              Josh · 25/07/2016 at 19:06

              I also saw him mentioning his other team TITANS in other tweets so he's obviously gone into to damage control mode trying to cover his tracks after the sh1tstorm erupted earlier today. 🙂

                I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 19:16

                I think Titans is his main team he plays in leagues with. Hasn't done himself any favours. The rules are the rules

                  SCaddict · 25/07/2016 at 19:39

                  Yeah I was surprised when I noticed he now has this GoodBetterBest team as I always knew him as the Titans guy in the past.

                  So I thought perhaps he just renamed his team this season as plenty of coaches do that. But I can now see that both teams are very much active and competing. So it will be interesting to see whether this "linked to my wife's email account" excuse that another contender in Chelsea mentioned above will hold water or not.

                  If it does I may just have to create a number of new teams linked to different family email accounts next season. I'll just have to remember not to brag about it on twitter if I'm right up there at the pointy end lol!

                    I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 19:54

                    Haha SCA. You need to review your structure next year!!! Wouldnt dob you in but. Your a good bloke

                    I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 20:01

                    Ironically my best finish was via fraud. Someone bailed on lockout day in the work league so I created a team under the wife's name. 6 different players to my team. And what do you know they were the right 6 players. Shags hags was in the mix all season. Finally fading to 65th in the last 3 weeks. Shaza never even knew she had a team! I finished 20k & divorced her

                    SCaddict · 25/07/2016 at 20:41

                    Yep glass houses and stones. i may have cut a few corners on a tax return or two in a former life as well … I can't recall exactly. 🙂

                  wombatsfc · 25/07/2016 at 20:09

                  How ya going itchy?
                  I don't get what the big issue is mate. I understand the technicality that you can't win overall prizes if you have multiple teams but that is a T and C it's not a rule of the game. That specific T and C was put in to stop the same person winning multiple prizes not because it gives you a competitive advantage.

                  Everybody seems very ready to jump on Raj and call him a cheat (many of the same folks who reckon that the bombers did nothing wrong). So what if the bloke has an abrasive personality 70% of the people that go to the footy have abrasive personalities (99% if you're at a bulldogs or kangas game, possibly they're all normal and I'm the count with one less vowel but who cares).

                  It's fair enough that Raj can't win any cash he violated the terms and conditions but if we hang every person who currently has more than 1 team a lot of leagues probably wouldn't have enough teams for a finals campaign.

                  In my experience having multiple teams isn't an advantage, two years ago I began 'managing my daughters team' as well as my own, BOTH teams are rubbish and have been since I first started. I haven't got within 3,500 places of top 100 where my single team was a regular.

                  It's fair enough to laugh at the blokes misfotune of being ineligible but it's a bit of a stretch to be calling him a cheat who has broken the rules of the game.
                  I sincerely hope that the willingness to condemn Raj as a cheat isn't based upon his ancestry.
                  I remember Raj as being annoyingly polite when I was a sane regular on this forum.

                    SCaddict · 25/07/2016 at 20:24

                    Fair enough Wombats I think you make some good points here.

                    It's definitely bit of a grey area when you are helping a family member out with their own team. But if Raj is disqualified it's certainly something to consider when you are setting up your sides next year as you'd hate to miss out on $50K because you were linked to some other teams.

                    Here's the rule in question in Q&A form lifted directly from the SC website so we can all interpret it as we wish:

                    Q: How many times can I enter?
                    A: You may only register and enter each of the games ONCE. Anyone found to be registered more than once, or controlling more than one team in any one game at any stage of the competition, will face possible disqualification as indicated in the official game rules and terms of use.

                    I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 20:30

                    Wombats it's been a while. I hope your well & miss our debates. I've never used the word cheat or descriminate towards a race. We are all equal regardless of skin colour or accent. But if he won & others who abided by the rules lost then that's unfair. That's all this is about. Let's just hope shemmist Moustachio & Jonno only have one team or are least busy getting rid of evidence. If you go around posting on Twitter that you have multiple teams then that's falling on your sword. I also think what's the bombers did was a disgrace. Hopefully everyone else feels the same way & teaches the kids that that was disgusting

                    macca · 25/07/2016 at 20:34

                    well said wombat no money but probably not alone with multiple teams.i am 9th behind titans and accept he is better nothing to do with ancestry

                    Moustachio · 25/07/2016 at 20:46

                    Issue is that the more teams you enter, the more chance you have of winning. You could enter 1000 teams and back in all sorts of crazy players. The rest of us have one team. Fairness = all on same playing field. Perfectly happy for him to finish #1 spot, but 50k should go to someone who battled fairly

                    I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 20:56

                    Completely agree Moustachio. Having stripped a weekly winner for doing that then surely the overall winner has an ever greater precedence. Don't take the rank, just no prize money.

                    Nifty · 25/07/2016 at 22:09

                    Agree INP. I fluked our state one a few years ago, but they refused to pay as I'd registered through the HS site, and not our NT News site. They said that's the rules. I'm still filthy….

                    I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 22:15

                    Fair enough nifty. That's BS to the max!!!

                    Nifty · 25/07/2016 at 22:26

                    Not wrong… The person that come 2nd would've been happy… if they let them know??

                    I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 22:44

                    45k out of pocket. Ouch

                    Nifty · 25/07/2016 at 23:03

                    No.. The state winner was only 1K..

                    Derek · 25/07/2016 at 23:55

                    Do you get a prize for winning your state?

                    I came first in NSW last year, didn't get anything.

                    Nifty · 26/07/2016 at 00:09

                    No, as i registered my team through the HS, not NT News link..

                    Southern S · 25/07/2016 at 22:04

                    So there's no competitive advantage when you have twice the chance of everyone else?

                    You're off your head.

                    I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 22:18

                    He has at least 3 teams southern. Wish I could post here what he posted this morning about the progress of all his teams! It's a joke

    johnno2908 · 25/07/2016 at 18:42

    I am 20th and only found out last week that it got paid to 10th haha. So every decision now feels even more pressure as I did not think there was much chance I could win.

      I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 19:19

      50k to winner 5k for 2nd & 1k for 3rd-10th. Better than previous years to be at the top

      SCaddict · 25/07/2016 at 19:46

      Good on ya johno. Please tell us you only have one team entered? 🙂

      5 weeks is a long time to go so hopefully injuries and POD performances go your way. Of course if one or two coaches above you get disqualified for essentially double dipping that won't hurt either.

        johnno2908 · 25/07/2016 at 21:42

        Only 1 team entered. Used 2 trades last week which leaves 4 for the last 5 weeks. Hopefully none this week. Bought in Merrett and Lycett for the ruck cover

Dean · 25/07/2016 at 18:07

Just a query community I thought Brent Harvey won't break Tuck's record unless North made it through the preliminary or Grand Final because it states he has had 419 games on the Fan Footy site.

However on the AFL website is stating that Harvey's 427th record breaking game is this week against St Kilda in a article titled "PETRIE IN DOUBT FOR HARVEY'S RECORD BREAKER."
Here is the article: http://www.afl.com.au/news/2016-07-25/drew-petrie

Is this right community?

    Steeeve · 25/07/2016 at 18:37

    This week is the record setter mate.

      Dean · 25/07/2016 at 21:06

      Cheers Steeeve, yeah I noticed it was all over the North website.

mac · 25/07/2016 at 18:38

i got two trades left should i save for sideways or get some bench cover

    rick · 25/07/2016 at 19:12

    save them

      mac · 25/07/2016 at 19:48

      yeh probs will but ive got deledio hall and libba with only silvagni as my forward cover
      had to cop a dont this week

        Moustachio · 25/07/2016 at 20:38

        Then you don't need bench cover, you need ground cover!

        Hubba · 26/07/2016 at 08:50

        Gotta trade then mate. If you're in contention SOJ won't cut the mustard if he's on field at this time of the year . Hall has to go

          Hubba · 26/07/2016 at 08:51

          Actually hall and lids are both cooked for the year … trade both

TRIGGER HAPPY · 25/07/2016 at 18:48

Just heard on the news and I quote:
"That there is no set time frame on Brett deleido's return"
That should set off the alarm bells for anyone who has him – might b put on ice for the rest of 2016.

    I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 19:03

    I had that feeling late last week to trigger. Nothing to play for so why risk him? If he's not named this week I think I'll get rid of him & add him to the banned for life list

      TRIGGER HAPPY · 25/07/2016 at 19:11

      Going off that comment i think there is no way he will be named this week

      Looks like backing the gut was the right call – despite limited trades just couldn't go into the finals with a bloke who may play or b a late out.
      So traded to zerrett with $600 change.

        I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 19:34

        Cotton wool. Pull the TRIGGER

rick · 25/07/2016 at 19:11

Bringing in a POD in the fwd line.
Howe, Buddy or T. Lynch (Gold Coast)??

    Gavin · 25/07/2016 at 19:35

    Buddy the best run home

      God · 25/07/2016 at 19:53

      Buddy is also not a POD though (33% ownership)

        I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 20:09

        He's a long way from a pod

    Gavin · 25/07/2016 at 19:58

    If you want pod go with Lynch but he doesn't have a good run home.

    Moustachio · 25/07/2016 at 20:37

    Would not take Howe as a fwd. Got Dusty Zorko Zerrett Wells Gunston?

    Leeds17 · 26/07/2016 at 05:49

    Assuming you have Dusty, Zorko, Merrett, maybe have a look at Tom Lynch from Adelaide, their next 4 weeks are Essendon, Freo Brisbane & Port.

OverIt · 25/07/2016 at 19:42

Love having all the villains … killing me 🙁

Blueth · 25/07/2016 at 21:17

How many trades do people have?
I'm about 2700th with full premo (this week Libba to Selwood) but have gone with a different strategy keeping 7 trades for the finals using the usual late season carnage to shoot me up the rankings.

    Gavin · 25/07/2016 at 21:41

    Ranked 435 with 3 trades full premo with bring in premos for bench coverage good luck trying to climb the ranks with basically 2 Rounds left and 7 trades. Ur playing for league wins not rank. You will go know where @ 2700! Hang the boot up ur toast!

      Rick Grimes · 26/07/2016 at 06:20

      Think you're missing a couple of zeros off that ranking Vag.

    embak2 · 25/07/2016 at 23:23

    Just 1 trade left but sitting 14th overall….risked it to get this far….

TheAnnointedOne · 25/07/2016 at 21:43

Hi community,
The conundrum I face heading into finals is Mr Mark Blivcas.
Sure he is getting me my 70-90, but for me it's not enough.
I have Maxwell Gawn…what other ruck, as I have 6 trades and ample $$$
Goldy or Stef Martin???

    Gavin · 25/07/2016 at 21:48


    Leeds17 · 25/07/2016 at 21:53

    Grundy or Jacobs? Not a lot of trust in Goldy of Stef tbh.

    embak2 · 25/07/2016 at 23:22

    Martin for sure….goldy will miss a game before year end

    Derek · 25/07/2016 at 23:41

    I have had Blitz from round 5, has been painful.

    I was thinking of a sneaky move to NicNat.

      Steeeve · 26/07/2016 at 10:37

      When's he back?

Rivo · 25/07/2016 at 21:46

Great article again Big Carl & well done Higgo!
4 trades and $164k. Carrying Rich & S. Collins at D5 & 6. Plus Deledio & Hall on the pine.
Managed cover this week with Petraca & Naismith but where to now?

Considering Hall to Simpson via swing & Deledio to Gunston.

Trade or Hold? Options?

SCaddict · 25/07/2016 at 21:51

Well let's see .. there's SCaddict Inc. Addicts Anonymous Pty Ltd, SCA Enterprises .. just off the top of my head. All that I really know is that the parent company is located in Tonga along with a bunch of torrent and other supposedly illegal file sharing sites.

    I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 22:02

    Ha! Surely enough intellect to create various off shore SC accounts & not post your success with your 3rd+ team posing & holding a tea cup on Twitter? It's a classy pic isn't it lol

Gavin · 25/07/2016 at 21:53

This article is is absolute rubbish! Tells nothing that we dont already know! Not even SC relevant! Dont come on here for this worthless article but only read viewers questions not this bs crappy article! All the others are relevant to SC not this one…………. YAWN!

Good move, do it!

    Southern S · 25/07/2016 at 22:00

    What's the problem it's a post round summary.

      Dont Blush Baby · 25/07/2016 at 22:02

      Go away and pull your little dick somewhere else Gavin

    Dean · 25/07/2016 at 22:11

    Big Carl has been posting The Heroes, The Villains & The Damned all bloody year. It's a great article I might add.

    Gavin if you don't like it then click on the back button you fool. If you have nothing good or at the very least something informative to say, then it's always best to say NOTHING.

    Clearly you had a ordinary weekend and/or Monday.

    Rivo · 26/07/2016 at 07:12

    Don't need to see this pointless negative feedback on this forum Gavin. Carl produces well written articles and helps a lot of the SC Community. Disappointing. Take it somewhere else.

I N Pieman · 25/07/2016 at 22:24

Gav. Spell that backwards & go get some. You need it

    Manuwell · 26/07/2016 at 11:43

    VAG? What is VAG?
    I know nothing.
    You always say that but I learn, I learn.
    I come from Barcelona.
    I work for Mr Watt aged forty, no no Mr Fawlty.

MY TWO CENTS · 25/07/2016 at 22:44

How big is this weekend for milestones?

Surely has to be a record, unprecedented.

    embak2 · 25/07/2016 at 23:21

    Unbelievable…just boomer alone is amazing. Add to it a geelong record and jimmy 300 and pav 350….wont happen again in the same week

      Hubba · 26/07/2016 at 08:54

      Don't forget Boris Enright as well

embak2 · 25/07/2016 at 23:19

Hello community…religiously followed the podcast and pages for years but first time poster.
I am currently sitting 14th overall in the rankings team name Manchester United…and I need to part ways with libba. I have 220k in the bank and currently have Danger Selwood Pendlebury Priddis Parker Ward Rockliff and Libba. Thoughts as to who I should bring in for Libba? Personally am considering kennedy bont and gray but open to other ideas….really stuggling and it will be my biggest trade.

    Derek · 25/07/2016 at 23:44

    You have to Hold your last trade. As long as Libba is playing, warm body on field, keep him.

    I believe there is still one big injury twist to come this season.

    Moustachio · 26/07/2016 at 08:59

    Sloane for points, Bont or Steven for a pod. JPK is doing well now, but its a bit of a slot machine with sydney mids.

    If its your last trade tho, I would hold.

    Disclaimer: I am 2 spots below you and want your spot =p

      Andrew · 26/07/2016 at 10:24

      Get a different team name haha. But seriously i like the look of JPK, has slid under the radar and is in ripping form atm (low % ownership as well)

        embak2 · 27/07/2016 at 22:32

        Haha you're not a liverpool man by any chance?
        Yeah I do like JPK…3rd highest averaging player since round 7….just over took the bont.

    The Ranger · 26/07/2016 at 11:22

    JPK is prob the safest option but I'd take a punt on Steven

    embak2 · 27/07/2016 at 22:31

    Thanks for all the responses.
    Best of luck Moustschio! Lets hope we can both get into the top 10!
    I will hold for now but going into finals may burn lids now that he is indefinite for one of the premos discussed.

embak2 · 25/07/2016 at 23:54

Yeah I dont plan on making the trade this week but as I am In a few big cash leagues I need to decide who to bring in come finals if no injuries occur. Of course I am praying for no injuries but you are right there probably is another. I dont have goldy though and I personally think he will miss a game before the year end.

    Derek · 26/07/2016 at 10:23

    in the run home, it will come down to who you Don't have, will set you apart.

    POD's are good, but say there is an injury to Goldy and he scores 5, those who DON'T have him will win.

Derek · 25/07/2016 at 23:59

Is there a cash prize for first in each state?

Was there one last year?

    Davo · 26/07/2016 at 00:04

    Pretty sure theres not, unfortunately

    Moustachio · 26/07/2016 at 08:08

    Hope it would scale by number of coaches per state! Might move to NT.

      Nifty · 26/07/2016 at 09:21

      Now Now Champ…

      Derek · 26/07/2016 at 09:22

      I managed 1st place in NSW last year.

embak2 · 26/07/2016 at 00:04

Great stuff mate! I am currently 14th with1 trade left but stong bench cover everywhere except ruck.

Hubba · 26/07/2016 at 00:17

Sam mitchell. Been wanting to pick him up for weeks … rolled him into my midfield as my last premo when ablett went down and haven't looked back. Goodish pod i think

    Derek · 26/07/2016 at 09:25

    great pick. I would be a little concerned about how much time Sam might get on the bench now that the Hawks have a top 2 almost locked away. Had Sam last year and would see him get 100 by 3/4 time, only to see him sit on the bench most of the last quarter once the game was won. Hodge & Cyril the same.

Davo · 26/07/2016 at 01:05

So with Deledio out im forced to use my last trade.. Ranked in top 60 too. Going out with a bang and getting Dahlhaus (if back) as a risky pod, hoping my bench cover of Menzel and Clay Smith can be called on when/if the time comes. In the unlikely event that theres no big outs in the last 4 rounds the team could still have a chance.

    Derek · 26/07/2016 at 09:26

    good luck Davo.

    Steeeve · 26/07/2016 at 10:40

    I hope Dahl is back this week Davo for your sake and mine. Need him to bleed cash for the next fortnight then I swoop in time for finals.

    The Ranger · 26/07/2016 at 11:09

    Nice bench cover Davo, good luck mate

Shags · 26/07/2016 at 05:28

6 trades left thinking of trading out Hall for Z Merret which is a no brainer and Delidio to Whitecross to free up some coin. What are the community's thoughts on Whitecross, job security etc. Cheers

    Hubba · 26/07/2016 at 08:58

    ..Is whitecross all you can afford ? If you already have full premo them wc is good bench cover only . At this pointy end of the season spend your cash to fill your premo team .

    Derek · 26/07/2016 at 09:30

    They really love Whitecross down at hawthorn and will give him every chance to play in a GF.

    Don't think he is quite in there best 22 yet, but i liked what i have seen in his two games back. His DPP is good but awkward price.

johnno2908 · 26/07/2016 at 07:24

Good to see some Jock Reynolds community members right at the pointy end. Hopefully one of us can take out the big prize

    Steeeve · 26/07/2016 at 10:40

    And not to mention a big shout out to all us hopeless bastards sitting around the 10,000 mark haha

Shake n bake · 26/07/2016 at 08:15

I won the weekly highest score once but wasn't aware if you had 2 teams you couldn't claim the prize lucky I didn't!

Chubby McChubby · 26/07/2016 at 09:08

S. Mitchell, Rocky, Sloane or Bonners

    Derek · 26/07/2016 at 10:05

    can't go past Sloane's run home.

    Essendon, Brisbane, Fremantle, Port, WCE.

    4 out of last 5 at the Adelaide Oval.

      Derek · 26/07/2016 at 10:07

      Adelaide's draw is so good, I'm worried that the crows defenders (Laird & BSmith) might not get a kick.

annoying old lady · 26/07/2016 at 09:08

Need to offload Deledio, so should I get Gunston or Dahlhaus this week?

Gunston playing some very SC relevant footy this year, Dahlhaus the better SC player, but coming back from a knee injury…would love to wait a week, but it's SC finals people!

    I N Pieman · 26/07/2016 at 09:30

    Its a tough call. Dahl also has a massive BE & will drop in price. If I can cover Lids this week I'll have a look at Dahl before making that call between Dahl & Gunston. I have Buddy so having 2 Key Fwds is not ideal

Moustachio · 26/07/2016 at 09:31

May have more work to do on this Raj fiasco:

[URL="https://www.bigfooty.com/forum/threads/2016-general-discussion-help.1122637/page-27#post-45717864"%5D2016 General Discussion / Help[/URL]

The HS deleted his LOW ranked team (??)

    Danners · 26/07/2016 at 09:56

    He has 3 teams, the one with just TITANS got deleted

      I N Pieman · 26/07/2016 at 10:13

      Seems all his teams are still there. They can't sweep this under the carpet. Its a joke. If he wins & gets the 50K I will cancel my digital subscription with the HS & I will be encouraging everyone I know to do the same, It says in the T's & C's clearly "Participants can only enter SC once. Under no circumstances can participants enter 2 or more teams in SC"

        Derek · 26/07/2016 at 10:28

        Having more than 1 team is hard. I tried keeping my son's team updated this year after he lost interest, and i'm blaming that for my poor season (nothing to do with starting Crouch, Wingard, lobbe, Brodie etc etc)

          neil · 26/07/2016 at 11:51

          hope he doesn't follow the hawks derek will be disappointed when cats get up bye the way did your mob make a player out of Fitzpatrick nice mark but zac cered at dees cheers

            Derek · 26/07/2016 at 12:08

            I agree with Pieman. Everyone know the rules.

            I guess there are people that do have more than 1 team, but at least they make an effort to set it up in the wife's name with a different email or something.

    NEIL · 26/07/2016 at 11:53

    good I'm 9 th to titANS

Derek · 26/07/2016 at 10:01

Fremantle's last 5 games are Swans, WCE, Crows, GWS, Bulldogs. Very tough run home.

Should Neale owners be worried?

One thing is certain, the Fremantle defenders will see ALOT of the ball over the last 5 games.

There is one bloke who is the heart and sole of the Fremantle defence, a man amongst boys, the Iron Fist of the west………. Zac Dawson!!!!

Should he be considered as a serious Defence upgrade???

    I N Pieman · 26/07/2016 at 10:29

    Mushrooms in the coffee this morning Derek?

      The Ranger · 26/07/2016 at 11:08

      Mmmm…..mushrooms and coffee…..

        I N Pieman · 26/07/2016 at 11:09

        Breakfast of champions Ranger

    Marshall · 26/07/2016 at 10:46

    You're an idiot.

    Zac Dawson was funny about 2 years ago.
    Not funny anymore it is just sad.

      Moustachio · 26/07/2016 at 11:11

      Still a little bit funny.

        Ben · 26/07/2016 at 11:29

        Plot twist. Marshall is Zac Dawson in disguise, trying to win back some rep

          Zac Dawson · 26/07/2016 at 11:33

          I resent that.
          I am respected the world over
          I am a coach kings super star!

      neil · 26/07/2016 at 11:45

      I laughed get a life goose

      Derek · 26/07/2016 at 11:58

      i need to get new material. I do it for the kids, the guys who may have only just joined our community.

        SCaddict · 26/07/2016 at 12:43

        Don't let the trolls get to you mate. You're a JR community treasure and don't need to change anything … well other than not starting with Lobbe next season. 🙂

          Derek · 26/07/2016 at 12:54

          don't forget i started with TBC the year before. ok next year i'll be serious.

            The Ranger · 26/07/2016 at 13:49

            I'd forgotten you started with TBC last year!
            You're not having a good run with rucks Derek!

              Derek · 26/07/2016 at 14:07

              i was a bit obsessed earlier this year about how the deliberate out of bounds and the less rotations was going to effect Ruckmen. i have calmed down now.

                Boltons BLues · 26/07/2016 at 14:16

                i started TBC aswell last year, if i remember correctly i didnt get rid of him till about round 12ish due to other issues
                year before that the price
                year before that Jack Watts
                Like you, ill be serious next year

                  Boltons BLues · 26/07/2016 at 14:16


                    Derek · 26/07/2016 at 15:21

                    Pure Guns and rookies for me next year

      Derek · 26/07/2016 at 12:00

      there is some SC relevence, especially for Neale owners or those thinking of getting him. i would be very concerned about his output over the next 5 weeks.

        Stavros · 26/07/2016 at 13:00

        Freo have been smashed just about every week and neale has still scored well i wouldnt be worried

          Derek · 26/07/2016 at 14:02

          yeah, but eventually it must have an effect

      Loop · 26/07/2016 at 12:32

      It was pretty funny when a guy I played in a Dream Team match last week had him. I wasnt sure if it was a joke or the guy was serious. Sadly I think it was a serious selection.

        Derek · 26/07/2016 at 12:54

        i played a team call "Mudcats" i think. Had Zac in the team.

        I N Pieman · 26/07/2016 at 12:55

        Now that Loop is a rookie error! My forst season of SC I picked Darren Glass. I had no idea what I was doing

          Derek · 26/07/2016 at 14:05

          Glass is ok…i remember a few years ago thinking John Butcher was a good pick

            Loop · 26/07/2016 at 14:57

            I picked Townsend this year. Shameful. I liked his attack on the ball in the NAB games but when the season started he gave away more free kicks than kicks he actually got. Just a horrible choice. Added to the "things I learnt this year list".

Jakob · 26/07/2016 at 10:59

Fellas I have two trades left and $35,800 left.
Team is:
Shaw, Pittard, Boyd, Gibson, Bartel, Savage Wagner, Collins

Dangerfield, Parker, Hannebery, Sloane, Treloar, Shiel, Mitchell, Gray t.mitchell, joyce, trengrove

Gawn, Hickey currie

martin, zorko, montagna, howe, deledio, hall adams, rose

not worried about ranks only league. Top of league by two games and tanking to help my mate make finals.
Not sure if I should get rid of Deledio or Hall first or keep deledio and trade savage and hall.

    Jakob · 26/07/2016 at 11:02

    or keep the trades for injuries and if i make it through use them as last minute sideway trades

      I N Pieman · 26/07/2016 at 11:26

      If your 2 games clear & don't care about rank then hold & tank for your mate this week & reassess next week

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 26/07/2016 at 11:29

    Didn't you answer your own question?
    Clear on top don't care about rank then just hold this week.
    finals start next week. Reassess then.
    hold those trades for finals you will need them.

      Jakob · 26/07/2016 at 11:34

      Yeah just a bit confused, never made finals before

      hedski · 26/07/2016 at 12:23

      Good game on the weekend trigger gave me a nice touch up. Hopefully get a chance at redemption during finals we're in a few leagues together.

        TRIGGER HAPPY · 26/07/2016 at 12:31

        Thanks mate.
        Super Sunday for me was the difference with capt angry roc lobster leading the way

        Think I scored over a 1000 points on Sunday from 8 players.

        Looking forward to locking horns again come finals. Same result would b good! 🙂

neil · 26/07/2016 at 11:42

not in the spirit of the game imo tanking

NEIL · 26/07/2016 at 12:06

Hypochondria has 17 teams still in finals and 18th is 1 behind That's a great effort fellas. I am 14th playing 6th with a better per cent but 5th can go out too.The 17th team can easily make it with 3 spots up for grabs. a good year same as Agraders

    hedski · 26/07/2016 at 12:22

    Yeah I've got a chance in hypo neil.
    Battlin for the vfl cup in agraders.

    Phil · 26/07/2016 at 12:37

    Yeah the overall leader's 2nd team TITANS is in that league from what I hear.

    Although I thought that team was meant to be getting deleted by the HeraldSun after all the complaints??

    TRIGGER HAPPY · 26/07/2016 at 12:37

    Mate that is tight just goes to show how even the community leagues are.

    I'm in a couple which are only separated by % from 5th to about 12th but 17th now that is even!

    Final round to decide top 8 how it should be.

    NEIL · 26/07/2016 at 13:31

    hedski we may play each other in both vfl with derek a graders and hypo TITANS is in with a chance would be pi,,,ed off if he beats us in.. Just goes to show how luck comes into it.ones number one and the second team battling to make it wonder how the 2 teams match up

      Derek · 26/07/2016 at 14:00

      i can still make the A Graders finals if DangersDangleBerries beat Dual Middies and TheWoodsmen beat 9thmond and i beat Rockburners by more than about 500 points………..

      dang that was a big loss round 17 to Neil!!!!

        Shake n bake · 26/07/2016 at 14:24

        I play pays to be brave if I beat him he has a slight chance to drop out the 8 aswell.

          TRIGGER HAPPY · 26/07/2016 at 14:44

          That would be right I play SnB last week before the finals.

          Ahh well if I gotta beat the best to make the finals so be it, no easy games.
          If I win I deserve to be there. bloody strong team you got there SnB.
          Geez I hope one of your big boys has an off night.

              TRIGGER HAPPY · 26/07/2016 at 15:24

              A graders

          NEIL · 26/07/2016 at 15:08

          HOPE YOURE RIGHT SHAKE but pays to be brave not easy mate.Is it too late for a SHAKE N BAKE FAKE

            TRIGGER HAPPY · 26/07/2016 at 15:16

            Gawd no I hope not.
            He's already pulled one and that was pure genius.
            The ol' SHAKE N BAKE FAKE will never be forgotten and go down in SC folklore.

              Shake n bake · 26/07/2016 at 15:36

              Just scoured ur team TRIGGER!! Only a few noticeable difference slone/ rocky Duncan/Cripps wells/lynch goldy/Martin love it hope u get up by a pt so we can hopefully play again in the finals!

                TRIGGER HAPPY · 26/07/2016 at 16:22

                wow is that all?
                as always gonna be tight!

                looking at that lot could go either way.

                one big one from one and quiet one from the other and that could be the difference.

                my only hope is if Duncan finds some form Friday night and goldy goes off for boomers milestone game.

                I'd love to take that 1 point to face off again in the finals.

            Shake n bake · 26/07/2016 at 15:20

            Ur right Neil he would be tough to get over! Loads of great teams but win lose or draw always fun!!

        Shake n bake · 26/07/2016 at 14:28

        Big chance I'll play you Derek 1st week of finals in JR community!

          Derek · 26/07/2016 at 15:05

          that is a strong League as well, and there i'm sitting 3rd. Luck of the draw sometimes

          Nifty · 26/07/2016 at 16:00

          You baked me on the w/end in JR Community SNB.

            Shake n bake · 26/07/2016 at 16:11

            Ur still sitting pretty Nifty but I suppose the win secures a top 4 spot.

        NEIL · 26/07/2016 at 14:34

        sorry mate learnt so much from yourself this .year but always thought the one thing you got wrong was rich and smith .Defence was never really a problem in my view I always thought 5 picked themselves D6 was my problem and still is.Next year I wont be paying the price and hopefully and I can do better .All these guys know their footy real well Hedski Trigger southern derek but look out next year Demonsdelight is coming thanks guys see you in the finals and sadly Derek in the vfl but I will be doing my best to beat the bunnies

          Derek · 26/07/2016 at 15:10

          Do you remember what your starting defence was this year neil?

          i paid the price for starting KK and Ibbotson at D4 & D5 the year before, it actually worked out quite well, especially as KK finished the year very well. Thought i could do same again and sneak 2 mid-pricers at D4 & D5 instead of getting a Gun & a Rookie.

            neil · 26/07/2016 at 15:51

            shaw rance laird weitering amt adams Ipicked up doc and simmo quickly and used amt/adams as D6.Used 2 trades each of first 9 weeks that killed me but looking at yourself and shake who both of you have lots of trades I WAS OUT OF MY LEAGUE. Next year will conserve trades and not worry about chasing points also look at a shake n bake fake in byes brilliant move and gutsy

        hedski · 26/07/2016 at 18:29

        I'll give it a crack Derek

          NEIL · 26/07/2016 at 18:38

          how do we start hedski is it appropriate to do it thru here needs a lot of work maybe no ones keen .See if you get responses HEDSKI STARTING 1. neil demonsdelight

    GoldRush · 26/07/2016 at 16:09

        GoldRush · 26/07/2016 at 21:00


      Shake n bake · 26/07/2016 at 16:37

      In JR community ur 8th Goldy!! Good luck in ur last rd!!

        Derek · 26/07/2016 at 16:53

        Jock ran some leagues with different divisions, using a promotion and relegation system. there was also the "Donors league" and a few other leagues that would earn you promotion to the Premier leagues. it would be great if he brought that back again. If Not we should try and bring it back next year.

          neil · 26/07/2016 at 17:11

          what a brilliant idea d erek relegation system makes it even more interesting .two leagues a graders and hypochondriac would be good starters bet there.s others even better lets talk see if any these guys here interested or am I out of line

        GoldRush · 26/07/2016 at 21:01

        Thanks S B.

JDP · 26/07/2016 at 13:06

Thoughts on Bryce Gibbs as POD
Only 4.8% of teams
Last 5 Round Av – 110
Run home – Hawks, Saints, Lions, Demons, Bombers

Compare with Callum Ward
16% of teams
5 Round Av – 100
Run home – tigers, Suns, Eagles, Dockers, Kangas

Thoughts would be appreciated community

    Derek · 26/07/2016 at 13:33

    when is Murphy likely to play again?

      Dont Blush Baby · 26/07/2016 at 13:56

      Good Q Derek,as I'm looking at Cripps but no Gibbs ,but not sure what impact that will have,Blues have a good run home

      Injury update usually comes out today ?

    Boltons BLues · 26/07/2016 at 14:15

    Cripps is starting to hit some form right about now, has been 100+ last 3 rounds against pretty good teams. ive had him from the start of the year

NEIL · 26/07/2016 at 15:03

derek I hope you do win DEMONSDEIGHTS plays reigning if I win by 346 and all the stars aline no vfl son. Pipedreams I know but heh how do you beat matt and shake in fact top 7 all good.No hall or greene next year at least not in my main team only kidding fellas. even the dees cant tank or cheat good CHEERS

Bob · 26/07/2016 at 17:05

Is pendles a must have?
Hasn't been setting the world on fire lately.
Or am I better off bringing in slone, Selwood or a Gibbs/crips type player for finals?
