Downloaded fine Jock. Looks bloody brillant!!!!


All good Jock, another masterpiece.


Size is too big viewing in browser, I adjusted to 33% if that helps :p

Gold Rush

Trouser Arousal size Jock, perfecto!!!


Jock, great work and as for the Higginator, can't stop playing with it. Downloaded cheat sheet to an iPad and worked fine. Thanks for the effort, helps me enormously.


Size has never been a problem for me Jock.
No problems at all she is tight but fits my screen.


All good from my end Jock. Stunning Read


Thanks Jock.
Got 90% of them in my team at the moment. Don't have Freeman, or black and only got starny in the ruck. Must have done the right research and got some help through the community articles. nice to be validated and I'm on the right track.
Get a good look at these boys in JLT soon.

I do have nomcoc (love that name) fwd and Hibberd in Def. Huge chance to play Rd 1 if shows his wares in preseason.


It appears we have an abundance in def rooks this year. Finally!


Greedy… Tippa, Adams, Weitering, Dea and Brown started R1 last year!


Jock will you do a team reveal of your team soon?


Thoughts on O Florent. Had a great finish to the TAC Cup as well the Under 18 all stars game and recorded the equal highest beep test (15.1) at the 2016 NAB AFL Draft combine. Sydney's recruiters are regarded as being very astute and traded picks with Port moving up the draft order and picking Florent earlier than expected. With their tendency to give rookies regular games such as Hewett and Papley could Florent play regular games early to add some much needed run to the Sydney midfield.

Tim Smith

Anything on rookies Harley Balic FWD Freo, or Tom lamb FWD Eagles, Heard they could be alright picks for rookies!


Both talented and thought of as bargains in their draft years Tim but no guarantee to play early. If Lamb doesn't play this year will be roaming Vic pastures in 2018.

Tim Smith

i dunno I've heard some places they might get a gig thanks though!


I have both in my team at the moment. BC is right, Lamb needs to get his chance this season.


Arousing read Jock, well done!


Lovely work this, Jock. The rookie cheatsheet has never steered me wrong over the years. Looking forward to reading your take on young McGrath in the mag.


Significant as always Jock!

Some notes:
Ryan is injured and unlikely to line up R1 now.
Pickett had a Lissfranc (sp?) injury, takes > 12-18 months to recover, would not hold breath for r1 start (r5-6 injury 2016).
Hampton, Hibberd, Newman, Vickers-Willis, Berry other decent DEF cows.

Would you reckon Hannan plays ahead of Smith for Dees?
I am bloody worried you are saying Strnadica may play R1, is this a cruel joke?? We are selecting him as a loophole dammit!!

Luskin Star

Sandis not breaking down Jock. STOP SAYING THAT


What are the value of stocks on Sand Toes this year.
Could be worth the risk at his price BUT I need to juggle the rest of my team first.
Value ruck options this year especially those that complain about the third man up rule.
Something to think about.


Plenty of strategy around those three ruck slots this year, OO. Sandi + swing man (Ryder) or two rolled gold premo rucks?


Off the top of my head without looking at my own stats that Jock has. I will say Jacobs and Grundy just for now. Ryder always seems to ride side saddle and is very unreliable for mine.


Geez you know I can't find it now with the Googles, but in my notes it says that he had surgery for his pre-season injury (I guess the shoulder?) and was on limited training, so seemed unlikely to make R1.

Hope you're right about Smith, love those bargain basement price rookies so that we can factor in more trouser stretching elsewhere!

Edit: Pretty vague rumor I think, though looks like the poster is from WA so maybe sees a bit different news on the Googlewebs??

I N Pieman

Don't put a line through Lukey Ryan just yet


Hey nuts, how you going buddy?
You i have found to be a man of integrity and Ryan stays in just for now.

I N Pieman

Ocker. It's been too long my friend! I'm going well. Isn't this about the time of year you emerge with your majestic spread sheet. Can't wait for a look if it gets posted


Rumour has it that it hit Jocks mailbox at 3.50am last night. So stay tuned…


It is in Jocks possession as of 3.55 am this morning. I sat up all night just to get it out for the community.
You will bloody love it mate.


Superb effort ocks putting in.the hard yards all for the benefit of the community!
Sleep will not conquer him I shall deliver.
Love ya work.


Do you still have the same Hot account? If you do I strongly suggest you check your email.
Cheers Buddy.


Hmmmm tantalising!

“He’s just starting to come back into footy right now after a shoulder injury, so they’re two guys who might stand up for us during the year.”

JUST TELL US IF THAT MEANS R1 OR NOT PLEASE. AFL coaches today are so inconsiderate of our needs.


Pickett did the injury in April an it takes about 6 months to get over. Apparently will get a full run for pre season..


Hallejulah!!!!!! First zipper destroyed due to uncharted arousal of the '17!


Thanks mate these things are bloody brilliant. Reckon Zach Sproule might have a better chance of getting a run early than Blacky though. Black struggled for a game in the leagues 3rd worst forward line reckon he might have been drafted for a crack at the VFL flag.


what are the rules with players on the Rookie list? When can they be upgraded?

I'm thinking about Jake Barrett who is on Lions Rookie list, very good player who couldn't get a game at GWS. Is there a Lions player who is on the long term injury list that will allow Jake to get a game?

Is Brett Eddy on Ports rookie list?

I N Pieman

Brett Eddy is on Port's rookie list. As it stands he needs someone to be placed on the LTI list to get upgraded. But there has been talk that might get scrapped before the start of this season, meaning you can play anyone on our list anytime. I hope that happens


Port have two spots available on their senior list. Lions are full.

Couldn't find when rookies are upgraded, although clubs don't have to have a 40 senior listed players


i remember a couple of years ago, Lambert and Krackour came off rookie list and just when they were flying they had to be put back again. stupid thing


Every club gets the opportunity to nominate 1 rookie before the start of the season that can play anytime without having to wait for a player to be put on the lti list


GEE I Love this bloody community.


This is gold Jock! Even though I have Eddy in my team, for some reason I can't see him lining up for the Power in Round 1

Sam L

Michael Apeness or Sean Darcy will get a gig in the ruck before Luke Strnadica does. Ross Lyon has even been known to throw Alex Pearce and Zac Dawson into rucking calculations.


Good gear Jock !

Big G

Jarrod Berry not included in the list?


It's only version 1 Big fella and I deduce that this version is only for players that have already been reviewed by community members. I arrived at that conclusion based on all of the spuds on the list who will be lucky to be upgraded or named as emergency once for the year and all of the guns who are actually likely to get a game early who aren't on this list.

Big G

I am hearing you.

Big G

I think Jock and the crew put together such pre-season list's to the best of their ability and is far ahead of any other website I have read.
