THE CENSUS ROOM – Round 21

Published by Patch on

PatchCoachKingsLogo

Bloody stupid thing.

I was keen for the census. It’s the one time every five years when I get to pretend I’m important and that I matter and the government actually listens to me when I say I’m a Jedi Knight with a degree in Garlic Bread Seasoning and sixteen children named Matthew Lloyd Jnr.

But as we all know, Zac Dawson could have made the census run smoother than it did. So, again, the Jock Reynolds Fantasy Football Community will step up to the plate. We never let you down. We never disappoint. We never crash.*

Well, except for that one time Lek melted the servers by recording a community pod so powerful not even a Crouching fly kick could calm the servers. And that time Crouching spilt rum on the motherboard.

So strap yourselves in for the 2016 JOCK REYNOLDS CENSUS!

Please keep your arms and legs inside the carriage at all times, circle the correct answer and don’t tell us any fibs. We’ll know. We always know.

1. How are you going in finals?

  8. Did you or did you not trade out Dylan Shiel last week after his groin complaint?
  9. If yes, do you now regret doing so upon his return?

THIS WEEKEND’S COACHKINGS CONTESTS

ONE WIN & YOU QUALIFY FOR VENUE FINALS HELD FRIDAY 16th SEPTEMBER

CoachKings RD21 fixture

THE PATCH UP

Righteo, that’s enough of the questions. Now to take the answers, chuck ‘em in a box and lock them away until the Chinese hack into them in retribution for Mack Horton WINNING RIGHT IN THEIR BILLIONS OF FACES. YEAH! THE OLYMPICS! *manly noises* WOO! SPORT! WAAHH!

But seriously, wrench your eyes away from the Olympics. They are the buzz zapper designed to weed out the weak of will and the feeble of mind. They are yet another challenge to taking the Supercoach crown.

The Olympics are the second-most important sporting event on in the world right now, streets behind your Supercoach finals.

And now it is time to do or die. There are no second chances from here on out.

So sit down and look at your team. Really look at your team. Look at your opponent’s team. Leave nothing in the tank.

With Pendles being named, there are no massive holes in our sides this week, but if you’ve got holes, Lekdog’s weekly cheatsheet holds wondrous answers. If not, get amongst this beautiful, beautiful community (who I owe a massive thanks to for convincing me to VC Gawn in the comments section last week) down below and we’ll set you right. Hopefully.

CAPTAIN McCAPTAINFACE

Here are some options who aren’t Paddy Dangerfield for you this week, either as VC or C. Smart money is on Dangerfield coming back

Max Gawn – coming up against an undercooked Lobbe, interstate, with Melbourne on a roll… yes please. Last time Gawn played the Power in The Alice he scored 167 points.

Tom Rockliff – the last time Rockliff played Carlton, he scored 204 points. Could it happen again?

Simpsons Image

The Sloane Ranger – coming off a 141 and a 137, Rory Sloane is in somewhat decent form, eh? Coming up against miserly Fremantle, he could pump out another 125+ very easily. Safe choice.

Scott Pendlebury – don’t do it. He’s injured, just be grateful he’s playing.

Any of the Sydney mob – Any one of Dan Hannebery, JPK or Luke Parker could go off their tits on Satdee night against the Sainters. The Swans – like everyone else – need percentage and will be on the hunt for as many goals as they can. I like Hanners of the bunch, as he’s a smokie to kick two or three sausage rolls, and JPK can tend to back off in easier games.

Dustin Martin – the Tiges sat up last week, largely off the back of this man. Doesn’t tend to go huge against the top 4 sides, but loves the MCG like no-one else does. 123 last week, 114 three weeks ago against the Pies. I’m avoiding, however.

Tom J. Lynch – Desperate times call for desperate measures. If you’re out of trades, looking to field a donut, or are completely out of your depth against an opponent, Tom J. Lynch from the Gold Coast Suns could kick 12 against Essendon this week.

With a host of midfield stars back, and a dysfunctional Don back line, my gut reckons he’ll go 135+. A risk – no, a huge, massive, stupid risk – but I wanted to put it out there.

And on that bombshell, goodnight!

Well, good day. But then I sound like a pretentious, angry Englishman. Which accurately describes Jeremy Clarkson. Hm. This requires more pondering. As does your Supercoach team!

I’ll look out for you in the comments, you beautiful, beautiful humans. Best of luck this week!

How many of the top 50 or so players will be ineligible to receive the major prize in SC this season?

Nervous Coach

Great work again Patch. Your version of the Census is much easier to access, more interesting and funnier that the real thing.
4 trades left. Looking to trade out Jacobs and Petracca. My options for Jacobs are limited to S Martin, Mumford or Z Smith. Options for Petracca are even more limited unless I downgrade him to Wills (Coll), Orkov (Rich) or Menogola (if he makes the final team). However, this would enable me to bring in Mumford or Goldy. Any comments/advice from the community greatly appreciated as always.

Patch

Cheers Nervous! It's a tough one in the ruck – I'd go Martin of those three myself, but none of them are really big wins for you there. But, if you can go Wills simply for the JS – Menegola will terrify you each Thursday night – and bring in Goldy that would be the move I'd go for mate!

Nervous Coach

Thanks Patch. Just realised if I traded Petracca to Wills then I would have to play either him or Phillips on the field in the last midfield position (currently occupied by Dalhous who I would swap into the forward line). Should I bring Orkov instead since he is a dual position which would give me enough to bring in Goldstein.

TRIGGER HAPPY

One for you Patch.

Was it my review of big maxy last Friday that saved your
A$$ and u saw the light and put the VC on the beard?

Don't tell us any fibs.
We'll know. We always know. 🙂

Patch

It absolutely was, Trigger, you beautiful human you. I owe you a beer for that one mate

I N Pieman

Love ya census Patch. Malcolm Turnbull said heads will role & he's probably looking over your article right now thinking your the man to take this thing forward! Who cares where I lived 5 years ago. The right question is how many times has Ross Lyon left you in the foetal position in the last 5 years! That's a shit load more relevant

Kev

You could have a whole bloody section of Freo-related questions Pieman

How many new swear words did you come up with after Ross Lyon rested half the team a few years ago?
Have you ever felt personally victimised by Garrick Ibbotsen?
Has the mind ever drifted to Nat Fyfe during your special alone time?

Patch

Do the words "Greg Broughton" consume you with an unquenchable rage?

The Ranger

Glorious Patch, bloody glorious.
And Harry, oi! Harry! Stop being weird.

Jock

Young Harry – he's proud of his profession isn't he Ranger!

Dean

Great work Patch as usual mate.

I'm unfortunately in a do or die semi mate although I shouldn't be because my plan last week was to trade Mathieson to Menegola and Libba to Sloane however on Friday as soon as Pendles got injured I didn't bother trading as I only have 3 trades, so I decided to play Dunkley for Libba and not trade.
Had I of traded last week and brought in Sloane I would have one my league game and been sitting sweet this week however I decided to HOLD trades as I presumed Pendles injury was allot worse and to be honest I hope the prick is a late if im honest.

I only have 3 trades left. – So my two options this week are as follows:

OPTION 1
Libba to Dahahlaus

OPTION 2
Matheison to Wills
Libba to Sloane

What would you do Patch and the community in general, thoughts/advice greatly appreciated.

Patch

Agree with I N, Deano. Bring in the Sloane Ranger

Jock

Yep – Option 2 here. The entire meat, spuds – the lot – all needs to be whacked on the board this weekend Deano!

Dean

Appreciate all your replies, thanks a ton guys.

Derek nah mate, all I have is $30k in the warchest so not enough to get B Crouch and to be honest, I would prefer Dahlhaus for $100k cheaper, I don't think there will be a great deal between them.

B Crouch: 72,83,51,46,83,83,109,122,89,92,144 Avg/87
Dahlhaus: 98,87,154,105,103,113,113,107,84,119,69,29,71,84 Avg/94

Kev

3 trades left. Pendles on one foot. Do or die semi final. Do you trade him anyway or back him like the champ that he is?

Patch

With three trades, I'd go to the Bont or Sloane. Depends on if your opponent has him, Kev. If he's a mad bastard who doesn't, you're down one there. Could give you a leg up if you flick him and your opponent is stuck with him

Steeeve

My Pendles cover, should he be a late out:
Step one: trade directly to Bont (leaving me with two trades)
Step two: sit back smugly and hope my opponent is out of trades.

OR…

Use Dahlhaus as cover. Means Dahlhaus becomes my m8 and Wingard becomes my f6.

decisions decisions

Patch

Tough one Steeeeve – as I've just said to Kev I'd pull the trigger if I had 3 but you do have ample cover

Steeeve

I know. I scrimped and saved for this cover and now the time might come to use it I'm not backing it in haha. Excruciating.

Jock

I'd deploy the Bont move personally mate assuming you have a do or die this weekend. Bloody Wingard has been an absolute chop nuts

Steeeve

Yeah agree. If Pendles plays I'll hold him and Chad can ride the pine at f7. I'll back in Dahlhaus one one leg over Chad after all the stinkers he's put up this year. Little bastard will probably go for 120 against the Dees now I've said that.

Jock

It's taken me 45 minutes just to map out the family tree logistics around question 19 but I've got multiple answers Patch??

Patch

Just put "Saints Supporter" down mate. It's 2016, we're mature enough to not giggle and those who choose to support the… hehehe… support the Saints
*sniggers*

Mister_Spock

I've got a VC dilemma Community – I reckon it comes down to the bearded barista in Maxy "Yes!I'm up against a second-string ruckman" Gawn, or Tom "Geez I love carving up the Blues" Rockliff.

Honestly I can't decide – Lobbe may steal enough of Max's hit outs that he might not get near the 167 he pumped out last time against the Power, whilst on the other hand, who really knows how Rockliff will go against the Blues given the year that Brisbane is having. With that said, it's hard to go past the fact that he's scored consistently high against Carlton.

Whaddayareckon?

Patch

Can you VC on Rockliff and put the C on Gawn, Spocky? I'm in favour of deploying some serious gonads this week

Hoot

VC rocky this week is a must.
You know what… throw a pinapple on them lions while your there.

Mister_Spock

Geez, will require gargantuan plums to leave the C off Danger…

Moustachio

Danger really steps up against the better sides, he will phone in a lazy 140 for tiges

PlayOn

I think Bolts is smart enough to apply a heavy tag on Rocky with Curnow… Could be wrong, buts it's all about the improvement at princess park

Shake n bake

Was really thinking early in the week to put the vc on Lynch…just might do it!

pod

C on Sloane? Suns play Sunday game.

Saundo

Yep VC on Merrett C on Sloane

Steeeve

VC Rockliff or Gawn will decide a lot of seasons this week.

TRIGGER HAPPY

and then there was 3.
Prestia, Mitchell and JOM.

Brad Crouch off the table – just signed with crows for next 4 years – gotta make BVC happy!

He Man

I can only afford a FWD that's $441 or less. What do you guys reckon? Options are D. Smith, Lynch, Hall, Westhoff, Betts, Kennedy, Dahlhous, Walker and Riewoldt. I'll be loopholing this bloke with Petracca.

pod

Dahl or Betts

Hawks

Dahlhaus

Maestro

Rance or JJ??

Patch

Gut says Rance, head says JJ. Rance for mine.

Maestro

Okay, I'm going Rance. Deep breath, then All in! Only because you're a bombers man Patch.
Cummon boys, suck in that smell of mown grass and let's tear them a new one!!!

KYLE CHALMERS

Sorry been busy the last couple of days but never miss your write up Patch.

Love your work.

Spot on – Olympics are the second most important sporting event in the world right now.

Sure you can win gold but to win Supercoach would truly make you an all time legend.

Andrew

VC on Ward or JPK and C on Danger, Merret or Sloane?

Patch

JPK and Danger, Sloane if you're feeling dicey

Shake n bake

Bloody Grimley why are you playing!!

Shake n bake

Funny question who do you think will score higher Martin or Naismith I can't loophole my rucks or vc/capt because of bloody Grimley??!!

Stef, Shake. Saints have been ruck-killers all year.

Shake n bake

With schache out think Stef will play a lot fwd so prob not to bad.

Pendles plays!

No late outs for tonight's game.

johnno2908

Pendlebury confirmed playing.

johnno2908

1 hour to make a decision…..

tom

Collins and Adams to cheap rookie and Enright with Rich as mid/def DPP bench cover
or
Adams and Stef Martin to cheap rookie and Gawn.

Marvin

So I'm down to my last trade so final team and h2h knockout so playing each like its my last. I can trade out deledio giving my 530k

Do I go a) hannebery via dpp and play hanners over zaharakis ( plays the Suns this week so could score more than 40…) or b) bring in tmac to def, meaning I only need to play one of Collins and yeo on the field. If b) which one do I play?

Cheers community

Hawks

A. Bring in Hanners, he can go big.

Patch

Would go B and play Yeo, Marvin!

Marvin

Cheers fellas.

Hawks

JJ Kennedy or Dahlhaus, which do we thing will score best over the next 3 weeks

Hoot

I think Dahlhaus.

But as we field him, JJK kicks 10..

I couldn't sleep knowing I had a chance to grab those points…

Can you?

Patch

The Dahl

Don't Blush Baby

Anyone putting the VC on Pendles tonight in the Lin Jong Cup, not for me though

Northernsoul74

Can you confirm does the winner get Jong or lose him? To be fair he played well tonight.

Dean

Who is worth keeping as bench cover Dunkley or Mathieson?

KYLE CHALMERS

I took the community's advice and put the C on Max Gawn and he had the C on Dangerfield.
When we stepped on the blocks I reminded him of Max Gawn's score.
He never recovered.
Whatever it takes.

Hawks

Pendlebury & JJK to Sloan & Dahlhaus

2 trades remaining

Appreciate the communities thoughts

Steeeve

Pendles plays, you keep him. Hear me?

johnno2908

Pendlebury looks fine. Think you have to keep.

Thanks in advance

Doing my head in….. Do I use my last 2 trades to bring in Wills and Dahlhaus. Or hold for hopefully next 2 weeks in case of premium outs.

Patch

What's your side looking like mate?

Pie's Fan

Would somebody, please somebody please kill Buckley!!!

johnno2908

Pendles playing a lot forward 🙁

SCaddict

May be having some mobility issues with that ankle perhaps??

Pie's Fan

Phil Walsh didn't deserve to be murdered, but Buckley does, please oh please someone kill him!

NorthMelb

If Dalhousie score well (which looks to be the case) who would I bench out of wi hard (wingard) and hall

Patch

Wingard for mine

pod

agree, Hall better player

Keenbutclueless

All week I had Stef Martin to Grundy and Lycett to dahlhaus. Today I really convinced myself that Hall was a great POD, especially playing Essendon this week, so went Lycett to Hall and kept Stef. Halfway through the first game of the round and already got a case of i can't bear to watch

Shake n bake

At the moment starting Pendels on the pine with the E on him might have been a wise decision!

Derek

Did the same.
Think I might leave him there and give Motlop a run on field.

Patch

This Moore kid can play, eh!

Those who traded Pendles will be loving life!

johnno2908

Played safe and kept Pendles instead of trading to Bont… Absolutely no balls. Its gonna be a tough few weeks to watch I reckon.

hedski

First mistake was fielding Suckpig over Ruggles/Collins.
Bont Dahl and Treloar motoring along though.
Good game.

pod

looking good

TRIGGER HAPPY

Far out billy picken can tackle, cracking game under the roof.

Northernsoul74

Not a fashionable player but had a great season.

Shake n bake

Pendles still might be scaled to 100.

SCaddict

Yeah no thanks to Bucks playing him mainly forward in the 1st half. Did recover nicely in the 2nd half when allowed to go to work on ball.

Shake n bake

So true I have danger Selwood Sloane Priddas Shiel Parker Hanners Cripps to play so might just leave Pendles on the pine?

Glenn

Take Howes 97 or play franklin vs the saints

pod

97 pretty good, do you need to risk?

Tom

Treloar and bontt have given me a fair good stiffy to start the round!

Chumpion

Take Bont's 137 as VC or put the big C on Gawn against port?

pod

274 in the bank, no brainer

hedski

VC'd Bont so pretty stoked none of my opponents have him will bank that. 584 with cap counted had Dahl Treloar and stinkin Suckpig too.
18 to play. Thought the pies were gonna snatch that one. Glad they didn't.

Hawks

Don't have a captains loophole this week.

Who to captain, Gawn or Dangerfield?

pod

Danger safe bet, Gawn due for spud day.

Tom

Gawn. Averages around 150 interstate, scored 167 against port last time, and they don't even have a good ruckman

Glenn

Play Reiwoldt or Buddy this week

Nervous Coach

Do I take Wills score (83) or roll the dice with Petracca?

Hawks

Take the points

Murray

Have Pendleton on the bench as emerg. Do I take peddles 94 one punt on Mengelola?

Hoot

94 will do

Murray

Have Pendlebury on the bench with emergency on him. Do I take his 94 as the loophole or take the chance with Mengelola

Hawks

Take 94

Shake n bake

Only had I choice for vc so put it on Dahlhaus. He didn't do to bad but now capt choice is it Danger Gawn Slone or Lynch??

pod

Danger should go 140+, Lynch could kick 10 today put it on him if you need a miracle win

John

Guys I can't vc gawn because I don't have any non playing players after he's played. Who should i put the VC on instead?

pod

need more info john.. any non playing mids, fwds on pine? who have you got for VC?

John

I only have one non playing mid and he plays for west coast and they play before Melbourne do. So I can't exactly loophole gawn. Both my forward benches are playing, my bench ruckman is playing and one of my bench forwards is playing. My other forward is not playing but he's from Sydney and they also play before melbourne does. I think I may have to just put the C on someone. Just don't know who. Btw my opponent has gawn as C.

Dogs

I have the week off, as a result I can't see my team in game day. So no idea how the projections will change. I still want a good score to push for ranking. Any ideas how to see my teams running total besides adding up the individual scores from fan footy?

pod

you should still see your team in Gameday

Kev

Yeah, seems to be fine for me on app and desktop site

Off The Bench

Doesn't work for me either with the app, login to the website on your phone to access your gameday

CJJ

3 trades left. Rucks are goldy, Martin and Naismith. Grimley in FWD line. Can I trust Martin or go for gawn? Must win game. Also have to get rid of wingard. $200,000 in the bank.

Kev

I'd be worried, CJJ. He dished up some putrid scores when tandem rucked with West earlier in the year. If your opponent has Gawn and the VC in on him, I'd look at blocking that. Could go huge against the Power tonight

CJJ

I have stuck with Martin all year, he has had a few good games and sits out the last two. I agree that it's best to negate. Looking at other teams in my league they all have gawn. Should have gone wingard to Dahl last night but missed the boat.
Looking at a FWD under 520 , gc lynch looks best option. Or possibly rioli, adel lynch or even greene?

Hawks

Rioli will go big today, and Gawn a must.

KKP

Which one to choose:
Neale or Ward
Please help

Hawks

Neale

Stavros

Neale has a sore shoulder and is in doubt. In the west australian paper

Jim

Play Buddy or Nick roo

Blueth

Ridiculous luxury trade Pendles to Hanners gonna shoot me into the top 1000, go HANNERS!

Bolted

Help! Petracca out for Kennedy, Sloane or Hanne? Or Blicavs to Gawn? Cut throat final! Already said no to Cripps and Rocky.

LJB

Don't think any of the three you mentioned will be a bad choice. All great options

hedski

Zorko the magnificent slaying it 111 halftime!!!!
Rocky 90 odd, Cripps injured.

SCaddict

I've got the VC on Rocky so hoping he can keep it going into the 2nd half.

Martin, Kedge and Simmo all stinking it up so far.

LJB

So it looks as tho I'll be taking Rockys VC score considering he is killing it in the first half.
Who do u guys think I should bench to get it as have only 1 loophole player. I already have Dahlhaus as emergency so whoever I bench will score zero points to my total score.
Options are
Selwood
Parker
Danger
Neale
Priddis
JPK

hedski

Neale there are rumours his shoulder is in a bad way.

LJB

Thank

JDP

Is Wines to Neale a good trade or save the trade?
Would leave me with 2 trades.

LJB

Neale could be a late withdrawal. ? Carring an injury

Hoot

Activated the Vice Captain loop hole at quarter time.

Go Rocky!

Kangas

Trying to get a league win against mates who rate my team as poo.
Can I get some expert advice please.
Wines to Ward or keep the trade for next week if I'm lucky enuf to win???

Bill

Do it get Ward! Do or Die!

Juzzy

North our poo

Thad CASTLE

keep S. Martins 70 or roll the dice on Naismith vs St Kilda?

LJB

All depends if your forecasted to win or if u need to take some risks. Id roll the dice, dont think he could do much worse but could certainly do better based on his previous performances

Hawks

Naismith

Bill

Anyone who brought in Boomer as a pod is absolutely stupid! The person I'm playing! LOL

Crap backline

take the 76 from Richie Rich or roll the dice with Collins????

Kev

Is Heater still on the team bus?

James

Do I vc hannebery, gawn or Parker

Pete

Gawn

SCaddict

Now hoping Danger bogs his shorts again like last week. Also would be nice if Maxy goes sub 120 too.

It's a funny ole game when you're hoping that a couple of your own superstars under-perform lol!

But these captaincy variances can make quite the difference in close finals obviously.

Alex

Play Buddy or N Reiwoldt??

Pete

I would play buddy out of those 2

Pete

Hey guys who would you bench out of Buddy, montagna or Hall???
Can't decide aaaarrggh

Peter

Hey guys who would you bench out of Buddy, montagna or hall.
Can't decide aaarrrgh

TRIGGER HAPPY

Good news bad news.
The good first.
Rocky pumps out a 160 and I have the VC hanging around his neck
The bad.
Everyone is playing so don't have a loop so unless I have a late out will be up to the capt tomorrow.

The Ranger

Do you need the win TH? If so can you pull a donut trade? i.e. trade in a non playing rookie for one of your bench players

Dean

That sucks mate. I'm doing my head in, had the C on Danger all week however I just realised Danger has played 3 times at the MCG and scored a 162 against the Hawks in round 1, followed by 99 against Essendon in Round 4 and a 86 against Pies in round 9 – Going by these stats it appears he struggles to go huge at the G.

My opponent is 300 points up as he had the VC on Treloar and took it obviously. He has the following different players to play: N Riewoldt, T Mitchell, Bartel, Neale & Menengola

I have: Ward, Steven, Wines, Motlop, Rance. Now im contemplating going GAWN as Captain after seeing Danger's stats at the G

Thoughts?

The Ranger

Nicely sold Pieman, I had the C on him!

Danny

Back from the g
My team were soft today
We are gone
There is no coming back
I am embarrassed to be a nth supporter and am signing up for geeking next week
Soft as butter, weak as water, hawthorn had us on the ropes and we were lambs to the slaughter

WHAT TO DO COMMUNITY, I NEED TO PULL A RABBIT OUT OF EVERY ORIFICE I HAVE IT SEEMS.
PLEASEEEEEEEEEE HELP!!!

I'm doing my head in, had the C on Danger all week however I just realised Danger has played 3 times at the MCG and scored a 162 against the Hawks in round 1, followed by 99 against Essendon in Round 4 and a 86 against Pies in round 9 – Going by these stats it appears he struggles to go huge at the G.

My opponent is 300 points up as he had the VC on Treloar and took it obviously. He has the following different players to play: N Riewoldt, T Mitchell, Bartel, Neale & Menengola

I have: Ward, Steven, Wines, Motlop, Rance. Now im contemplating going GAWN as Captain after seeing Danger's stats at the G

Thoughts?

Rocksta

Dylan Shiel 25 possesions at 3qtr time, but only 54 SC points, but yet around 80 points in AFL fantasy.
I think I need to start playing Fantasy instead of SC. Regardless of what anybody says, how can a player only have 54 SC points with 25 touches?

Moustachio

If you think about it, if a player is hogging a teams limited possessions and not getting anything done with it, it's a detriment to the team. Kick the ball, hit the target, win at life and supercoach!

Connor

No loophole
Do I captain M. GAWN or P. DANGERFIELD?

hedski

That was one of the best finishes to a game I've seen in ages. This round is throwing up some good contests.

Don't Blush Baby

Wingard gone, makes my trades easier next week

SCaddict

Certainly one of the leading contenders for Burnman of the Year along with other choice candidates like KK, Sheridan and Brodie Smith. At least it will feel good to rage trade him next week DBB.

hedski

Injured or shit Blush?

SCaddict

Hammy hedski so cooked for the season.

hedski

Hmm. Guess that's why trades would be handy now. And not ever picking Chad the Spud again.

poloko48

Big Maxy on 74 at half time

SCaddict

Buddy Bewdiful!!!

Hoot

Can't recall a better SC Sat than this.
Rocky C
Zork
Jjk
Prid
Hann
Park
Frank
Gawn…
It goes on!

oliver

Made one of my worst decisions of the season, decided to play Wingard and Bench Buddy. Have a 426 point lead with Gawn (Captain), Dangerfield, Steven, and Wingard. Going up against Dangerfield (Captain),Gawn, Motlop, Selwood, Hall, Buddy and Neale. Will i just get over the line?

TRIGGER HAPPY

Hope you wacked the C on big maxy Dean,
he has GAWN nuts delivering a score over 140.

Neverweaken

Gawn scaled up to 151. I have him as VC with danger. My opponent has Hannebury VC with danger. Both good scores but I'm happy to take Gawns

Dean

Sure did mate, after I realised that Danger has had 2 out of 3 sub 100's at the MCG I just had to go GAWN and im glad I did, although highly unlikely for me to win my league unfortunately.

Neverweaken

Taking Gawns score for captain. Buddy, Zorko, Rockliff, Treloar. Parker. Has been a good day. Even Kennedy from westcoast went ok. Only suckling has really let me down.

Dean

Whats your score and how many played.

Neverweaken

1812 from 15 with Gawn as captain. Still got Hampson Martin Rance, Selwood, Danger, Sloane and Motlop. May have to sacrifice to the SC goods to keep this up

Neverweaken

Actually hall not Motlop

SCaddict

How the heck did Lycett score just 2 SC pts from 54% TOG? That surely has to be a record low for someone who played over half a game of footy?

johnno2908

He actually got scaled -9. We knew DogDog being back would affect his scores, but that is woeful.

Rage

Chic chic booom
Heads will roll even if it is my final trade

johnno2908

There is going to be some massive scores this weekend!

Iamme

I got a feeling there is gonna be some monster scores this weekend 1760/16 with Z.Merrett, Tippy, Hall, Dusty, Laird and Danger (Capt) to play

SCaddict

I could give 2600 a nudge and I've had a few spuds like Kedge and Suckling Pig so there must be some monsters out there alright.

Dean

Your scoring very well mate, your 100 up on me considering your captain hasn't played.
I'm on 1661/15 with Motlop, Rance, Merrett, Danger, Martin, Laird & Sloane. I had Gawn as Captain.

Iamme

Only score below 83 is a 76 by Rich, got 3 150 plus scores from Rocky 159 then Gawn and Zorko got 151 a piece.

Dean

Thanks Trigger Happy.
I went big Gawn as Captain but unfortunately its not going to be enough, unless a miracle happens.

Opponent is on 1705 and he has Bartel, Neale & Menegola as different players.
I'm on 1661 and I only have Motlop & Rance as different players.
Fingers crossed a miracle takes place and Motlop & Rance go NUTS while Bartel, Neale & Menegola have mares. lol

I'm just spewing I chose not to trade in Slone and Menegola last week, due to Pendles getting injured.
I should be having a BUY and taking it easy this week, but that's SC.

Thanks again mate.

Bill

It's BYE not BUY

Derek

I put Wingard on field instead of Motlop. Port at home I thought it was a good move.

Derek

Playing a draft league GF this week. Going to be close. Who to play on field, Tex Walker or JRoo?

Dean

Tough call, I'd go Tex only coz they have allot to play for to cement top 4 other then that id flip a coin very tough call.

Moustachio

Has to be Jack in his 200th

Redgumwon

I've got a bad feeling about Tex Derek. Might be better to go JRoo 🙂 I'm looking for Tommy Lynch to burst out of the blocks in the second half. It's been a very ugly game to watch so far Essendon v Gold Coast

Neverweaken

Hall or Motlop on the field??

Dean

Hall

Dean

It's one of those years mate. I won't be finishing in top 1000 which I have done for several years, I'll finish between 2000 to 2600 and to make it worse it looks almost certain that I'll lose my main league game.

I'm on 1661 from 15 played, I only have Motlop & Rance as different players to my opponent and he is on 1705 and has Bartel, Neale & Menegola as different players.
.
Looking forward to next year already.

tuxCS

I need Danger to outscore gawn, I had Gawn as vc but I have no non playing people to loop him with

Johnny

Made a similar mistake. Can take Sloane off for menadue but then it makes my emg rupert mills 80 points active….

Dean

You should have tried your VC on a earlier game mate, l had my VC on Simpson for the same reason but because he scored crap I put the C on Gawn.

If you have 4 or more trades and only if its a must win game you can trade in a non player to get Gawns score.

tuxCS

I have a non playing player in Menadue, but if I put him on for someone else, I'll get mathieons score , because I made the mistake of setting him as E

johnno2908

Pretty sure The Phantom has done the same thing. These so called Herald Sun experts….

Hawks

Decisions….Decisions

Team scoring well.
I won't be around tomorrow (wife's birthday lunch).
VC on Gawn, but no loophole, unless I trade a non-playing defender in for Collins. Move would pretty much guarantee a win in my money league, but leaves just 2 trades for next 2 weeks.

Alternative is to C on Dangerfield, (60% chance of winning this week), would need Danger to score 120ish, but would leave 3 trades and an Emergency in def for future weeks.

Prize money for 1st & 2nd in league only.

Thoughts appreciated.

Hawks

Choice made, welcome Alex Keath (Adelaide) my captain for this week.

John

Danger or sloane for C?

John

or Merrett or Dusty

Rage

this is my frame of mind right now
I have 1 trade left and i had week off, i thought i was smart putting the E on martin and looping after he scored 60 odd only to play lycett and for him to dish up an UTTERLY DISGRACEFUL fing 2!!!!!! I have 2 finals next week and im taking lycett out to slaughhter from pure rage because you dont serve up a pitiful fing 2!!!! In supercoach finals you flog
Chic chic BOOM

Maestro

Take a deep breath and save your trade mate! Two weeks to go and if they go like the rest of this putrid injury prone season, you might need it.

johnno2908

Really hoping Lachie Neale plays today. Hopefully getting the record for most possessions in a season makes him work through the injury. http://www.perthnow.com.au/sport/afl/teams/freman

Southern S

Looking ok this week with Gawn as vice scraped together a 2450 last week with solid efforts from Lyons, Petracca and Mitch Brown in my injury wrecked forward line. Should pull similar this week quietly confident of reaching the semis in all 9 of my leagues.

tuxCS

Exact same situation Steve

Steeeve

I blame Phillips haha.

johnny_z

What to do!?

Option 1: Gawn Vc 302
Wills 83
Danger

Option 2: Gawn 151
Sloane
Danger C

Southern S

That's really tough Johnny if you feel you have your matches won I'd probably play it safe and keep Gawns captain score.

Derek

Close call. If Danger and Sloane score 117 each, it is a tie. I think they could do better than that.

johnny_z

Mmm tough decision, both teams I'm playing have danger captain…

Southern S

I see it as you have your points guaranteed with Gawn where as on the very off chance Sloane and Danger don't score well or possibly cop an injury or knock there's less risk. That saying they can both go Big. Good luck with the decision!

Johnny

Cheers mate I've stuck with Gawn ! Every chance danger plays forward again

I N Pieman

Will be some very large scores out there this week. Wish I was playing a league match!

TRIGGER HAPPY

Danger or sloane as capt.?

Steeeve

Danger C and Bartel don't want me to win my main league.
